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

To learn as Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

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

wa salatu salam ala schizophyllum Bay with Mr Li Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam live in Kaziranga sera from abajo. My brothers and sisters,

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

lots of Anoka gelato

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

centers us his column.

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

He sent his car on to his hubby Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa salatu salam.

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

And he sent him discolor. And through him, he sent his column to us.

00:00:39--> 00:00:48

The purpose of the nozzle of the Koran is for us to understand it and to live our lives according to it.

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

Sad to say we have done many things with the Koran.

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

But what we have not done with it, for example, we have learned to recite it very beautifully. Right we focus on those all of those we, we ensure that we recite it correctly and that is correct, you should do that.

00:01:08--> 00:01:19

We have we spent a lot of time learning the different kinds of recitation different art. We beautify our voices, we recite the Quran we beautifully.

00:01:20--> 00:01:31

Those who have who know calligraphy, they have written the Quran, calligraphic Li very, very beautiful I mean, they see that calligraphy it's it's art in itself.

00:01:32--> 00:01:59

Very beautiful. Sometimes they get a calligraphy is so complex, and so beautiful, that you can't even read what has been written, although you also have to have to you have to struggle to find the words but I'm not even talking about that I'm saying even the regular courses which are written are very, very beautifully calligraphic ways than the, the illuminated which is you know, which means that on the borders of the page, different colors are used and so on and so forth.

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

We have spent time and energy in translating the Quran into different languages, we have spent time and energy in the exchanges in the sea of the Quran

00:02:16--> 00:02:19

all of which is good Alhamdulillah.

00:02:20--> 00:02:24

But that is not the purpose for which the Quran came.

00:02:27--> 00:02:49

The Quran came to be lived by the Quran came for us to treat it, as if we are receiving it right now, as of the nozzle of the Quran is happening on my heart now as I speak, then what would I do?

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

Then what would I do?

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

I would respond to the Quran,

00:02:56--> 00:03:05

I would think about what Allah is telling me and I would reflect on it and I will change my life accordingly.

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

Right, I will do this.

00:03:10--> 00:03:11

Because if I was not doing that,

00:03:12--> 00:03:22

then I am not fulfilling the right of the Koran that it should be understood and it should be lived by

00:03:24--> 00:03:35

Allah did not send it for us simply to recite it like a poem or like a song, he did not send it for us only to write it in beautiful calligraphic

00:03:36--> 00:03:47

scripts. Allah did not send it for us to have symposia on it and to discuss it and to debate about it and to you know, to go into all of these

00:03:49--> 00:04:01

things by themselves, as I mentioned to you, is nothing wrong with any of these things, but that's not the purpose why it came. To illustrate let me give you why. Let me illustrate with an example.

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

Supposing

00:04:05--> 00:04:12

I'm very hungry and I need food. And I come into this place where there is this person this cook is cooking.

00:04:13--> 00:04:30

And he is putting in the best of spices, putting in the best of materials and so on and so forth. And he has cooked his beautiful dish. And then he garnishes it and then he decorates it and then he makes it absolutely i mean just looking at that my mouth is watering My eyes are tearing up

00:04:31--> 00:04:41

and my hunger is you know gone up even more. And when the old thing is over the cook picks it up and puts it into the refrigerator or puts it into a showcase.

00:04:42--> 00:04:43

Right and locks the showcase.

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

What does that do to

00:04:49--> 00:04:49

nothing

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

more I'm still hungry. I'm actually even more hungry.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

The food is there. It is to be eaten. It's been cooked in order to be eaten.

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

While you cook food,

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

but I am not accessing that food.

00:05:09--> 00:05:13

In my in my example I told you that the cook did it supposing you did it yourself.

00:05:15--> 00:05:18

This is what we have done with the Quran Al Karim.

00:05:21--> 00:05:24

We have physically given it respect.

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

We put it in a high place.

00:05:28--> 00:05:31

I was in a Jewish school in

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

in England,

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

called j cos Academy.

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

And my brother

00:05:39--> 00:05:43

Adam Schiff, when he listens to this, he will remember that because he was with me at the time.

00:05:44--> 00:05:50

My wife and I and Ali were in Jacobs Academy. And that's a Jewish school.

00:05:51--> 00:05:55

And the teachers, they welcomed us and so on. And so very nice.

00:05:56--> 00:05:58

We had tea with a principal.

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

And then the teachers were taking us out of school. And one of the teachers who teaches the

00:06:08--> 00:06:09

who teaches the

00:06:10--> 00:06:34

Religious Studies class. She said to us, if you haven't too bad passed by my class, and if you would like to walk in, you're most welcome. So, we thought this is very kind and courteous of her. So we said thank you very much. And we happen to be passing by her class. So we knocked on the door and we they will come to us, we came in there. This was a class of about eight to nine years old children.

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

All Jewish children, bicycles.

00:06:41--> 00:06:44

So they greeted us and so on. Very nice, very pleasant.

00:06:45--> 00:06:54

So I asked them, they said, these are the DSM, even ask them any question you like I said, Okay, so I said to them, what do you know about Islam?

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

So immediately, three, four hands went up. So I picked

00:07:01--> 00:07:02

one boy.

00:07:03--> 00:07:09

And I said, Yes, please tell me. And this little eight year old, a nine year old boy, he tells me

00:07:10--> 00:07:13

Islam is a religion, which believes in one God.

00:07:15--> 00:07:29

And you worship one God, without any partners. swala is a young Jewish boy, give me this answer is not preschool. He has not been you know, trained to give this answer. The teacher had no idea what I was gonna ask them.

00:07:33--> 00:07:36

They I said, I pointed to the next person. I said, What do you know about Islam?

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

is a little girl.

00:07:40--> 00:07:47

And this little girl says that Islam is a religion, which is based on a book. I said, you know the name of the book? She said, yes, it is called the Quran.

00:07:48--> 00:07:57

I said, What do you know about his book, she says, this little girl, I imagined she learning it from the teacher, the Jewish teachers teaching her. This little girl says

00:07:58--> 00:08:00

this book has never been changed.

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

It has no changes in it, it is as it was revealed.

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

And Muslims respect this book. And they keep it in a high place.

00:08:17--> 00:08:20

Muslims respect his book, and they keep it in a high place.

00:08:23--> 00:08:25

I was both happy and I was sad.

00:08:28--> 00:08:35

I was happy because I'm here the Jewish school. Here is a Jewish teacher to teaching Jewish children.

00:08:36--> 00:08:39

And when I go into the class random questions,

00:08:40--> 00:08:41

what do I get?

00:08:42--> 00:08:56

In terms of what they are learning about Islam? I get the impression that they are learning things about Islam, where they have developed a respect for Islam or respect for Muslims are respect for the Kitab of Allah.

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

Said hamdulillah.

00:09:00--> 00:09:01

But what I was sad about was

00:09:05--> 00:09:13

Muslims respect their book, and they keep it in a high place. How true that statement is

00:09:14--> 00:09:18

how tragically true that statement is.

00:09:19--> 00:09:28

Muslims respect their kita pick it up, they kiss it, touch it to their eyes, they attach it to them for it. They place it on a high shelf.

00:09:30--> 00:09:34

How would I be how would it have been? What would I have felt if that girl had said,

00:09:35--> 00:09:42

Muslims respect their book, and they live their lives according to that book.

00:09:43--> 00:09:49

This also was a possibility. This also was a possibility that this girl could have said that.

00:09:50--> 00:09:54

But when would she have said if that were to be the case.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

The fact that this little girl didn't say that.

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

Is it her fault? Is it my fault and your fault?

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

My brother and sisters, I reflect, and I request you to reflect. We are sitting at home.

00:10:11--> 00:10:14

We have been locked in for a purpose.

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

The purpose is a last is a question.

00:10:21--> 00:10:22

And the question I asked us was fine.

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

And I said, Where are you going?

00:10:27--> 00:10:30

And we were so busy in our lives that we kept going.

00:10:31--> 00:10:42

And I was asking, Where are you going? Where are you going? We have no time to stop and asked answer that question. What do we do with our question? We repeat the question.

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

Every time we read that, if we say,

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

boo,

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

boo.

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

My

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

request to you is this.

00:11:00--> 00:11:03

If I asked you, what is your name?

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

And you replied to me, What is your name?

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

Have you answered my question?

00:11:14--> 00:11:20

Am I going to be happy? Or am I going to be more irritated? And I want to say to you what's wrong with you? I'm asking a question, give me an answer.

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

I'm saying where are you going?

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

I asked you where are you going?

00:11:29--> 00:11:33

And your response your replies? Where are you going?

00:11:34--> 00:11:36

Where are you going?

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

Is that an answer?

00:11:39--> 00:11:40

Is that acceptable?

00:11:42--> 00:11:44

Allah is asking is fine as possible.

00:11:45--> 00:11:48

And our responses, we repeat the same I

And what is our response? Furby

00:12:19--> 00:12:23

Ravi Kumar, Taka Ziva, VP die.

00:12:26--> 00:12:29

There's a beautiful story of Elijah Salaam in the Sierra.

00:12:30--> 00:12:35

When Salam recited the whole of Surah Rahman before

00:12:36--> 00:12:45

the Sahaba sat and listened in silence, measured their listening to the column of Allah to Surah

00:12:47--> 00:12:58

masotti lukari Mohammed Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the voice of the one who received that color what can be superior to that? What what can be better than that?

00:13:05--> 00:13:10

When I was in a finished illustration, he said to the Saba Are you not going to say anything?

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

You're sitting silently.

00:13:15--> 00:13:17

00:13:20--> 00:13:24

May our mothers and fathers be sacrificed on you What do you want us to say this is the greatest.

00:13:25--> 00:13:33

We are so thankful to Allah. That Allah subhanaw taala gave us this honor this opportunity to listen to the to his column in your voice.

00:13:35--> 00:13:38

Masuda Sallam said when I presented this surah before the gin

00:13:40--> 00:13:41

00:13:42--> 00:13:50

when I decided to Saraswati raha he said every time I said for V, you know be Kumar because the bar

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

adjusters

00:14:20--> 00:14:24

to take a NEMA for granted is to deny it.

00:14:25--> 00:14:30

The whistle as Adam said even about the about human beings what people love is a loss of

00:14:31--> 00:14:40

money Bella mia scaliness lemhi escuela the one was not thank the person has not thanked the people has not thanked Allah Subhana

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

Where of my punishment which is very severe?

00:15:06--> 00:15:11

asked you and I remind myself, how many times have you responded to the Quran?

00:15:12--> 00:15:19

How many times have we tried to think and say that this column came for me to live by it?

00:15:20--> 00:15:25

What of this column? Can I see in my own life?

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

Which part of the Quran Can I see in my own life?

00:15:35--> 00:15:38

Allah said Allah Allah, Allah Allah.

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

The eyes which gave in Surah Allah

00:15:44--> 00:15:55

The as Babu relates to Abu Jamal, but the Quran everything revealed is for everyone around me Allah Ambien Allah Hara. Allah said, Does he not know that he's watching?

00:15:57--> 00:16:03

Ask him I asked myself when I'm cursing somebody when I'm using 50 language do I not know them as watching?

00:16:05--> 00:16:13

When I'm abusing somebody when I'm when I'm when I'm infringing on the dignity of somebody else, don't I know that Allah is watching.

00:16:15--> 00:16:18

When I'm lying, don't I know that Allah is watching?

00:16:19--> 00:16:22

When I'm cheating somebody do not do not know that Allah is watching.

00:16:25--> 00:16:32

When I'm slandering somebody, when I'm inventing lies about somebody. When I backbiting somebody

00:16:35--> 00:16:42

when I am practicing innuendo, with respect to somebody named Eva, do I not know that Allah is watching?

00:16:44--> 00:16:50

When I'm eating something, which is haram when I'm drinking alcohol, do I not know that I was watching

00:16:51--> 00:16:55

marvel at the courage of people

00:16:57--> 00:17:02

sitting there with a glass of alcohol with a glass of liquor in your hand

00:17:03--> 00:17:27

and you are a Muslim? You believe in La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, you believe what your name is Allah Sallam said which is that he said death can come at any minute without warning in Salah if you if you say a Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah on the right is a do not believe that you will be able to complete this alarm by saying a Salam aleikum wa Taala on your left shoulder.

00:17:29--> 00:17:34

We know the Saudis, we believe in the Saudis. We believe in Mohamed Salah,

00:17:35--> 00:17:38

who sit and listen to Cavalli and Rashid about mamasan Salah.

00:17:41--> 00:17:44

And yet when I'm sitting with a glass of liquor in my hand,

00:17:46--> 00:18:10

I don't remember any of this. But I know that Allah is watching. Don't I know that Amazon Sallam said you will be resurrected in the state in which you die? Don't die. Remember that Allah is watching and it is his right and it is his power that he can call me to account right there with the glass of alcohol in my hand. And then when I'm resurrected before Allah subhanaw taala. I will be resurrected doing

00:18:12--> 00:18:22

when I'm dealing with interest when I'm signing those checks when I'm signing those agreements, taking loans, taking interest paying interest.

00:18:24--> 00:18:37

Don't I have the Allies watching? Do I not know that when I signed the check, I did not sign the check. I signed an acceptance of declaration of war from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:18:40--> 00:18:57

From that moment onwards, when I signed that check when I signed that agreement, taking a loan, or giving a loan on interest, or if I was the one who recorded that transaction or if I was the one who was witness for this party or that party.

00:18:59--> 00:19:10

I didn't sign the check. I didn't just sign the agreement. I signed my name in the list of enemies of Allah.

00:19:11--> 00:19:14

From that moment onwards,

00:19:15--> 00:19:46

I am an enemy of Allah, which Allah The one who sent the Coronavirus which Allah The one who has the cure for the Coronavirus which Allah The one who will send molekule mouth for me one day, which Allah the one before whom I will be resurrected and I will be brought And on that day the angels will come to me and they will give me a sword and say Here take this weapon.

00:20:32--> 00:20:33

Go and fight.

00:20:37--> 00:20:40

Everyone brothers sisters, this is what we are doing.

00:20:42--> 00:20:48

This is what we are doing. lm yalom, the anila you know who is?

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

You know, who is he?

00:20:52--> 00:20:53

He's not one but

00:20:55--> 00:20:59

he is the father of ignorance. And you know who that is?

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

That is me.

00:21:03--> 00:21:11

That is you. If we have accepted a declaration of war from Allah, and hamdulillah I'm not

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

an underline shala you are not out yet. But those of you Muslims, who are drinking alcohol, who are fornicating, who are dealing in interest,

00:21:27--> 00:21:31

you are saying about yourself, that you are observed.

00:21:34--> 00:21:41

Please understand this. Who is an enemy? An enemy is the one who wants your destruction?

00:21:43--> 00:21:47

Is the enemy The one who will help you? Have you ever known an enemy to help you?

00:21:51--> 00:22:00

On what basis therefore, after having deliberately knowingly understanding the Koran

00:22:02--> 00:22:08

when we accept a declaration of war from Allah subhanaw taala. Then on what basis do we go and make doctrine

00:22:10--> 00:22:14

or law save me from the Coronavirus? Uh huh. Really?

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

My brother sisters, please

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

use this time. don't squander this time.

00:22:26--> 00:22:37

Use this time to reflect on our lives for a Natasa boom. This is what I want to close with. Allah asked this question, Where are you going?

00:22:39--> 00:22:44

They are busy, busy running, running, running. And I say Where are you going? Where are you going?

00:22:45--> 00:22:48

Now last? No, no, no, they don't answer like this.

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

Because they're too busy. They're too busy disobeying me, uh, too busy running. So let me stop them. So Allah subhanaw taala ran us into a wall.

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

Life.

00:23:07--> 00:23:08

You can't travel.

00:23:09--> 00:23:12

You can't go to the shop. You can't go to work.

00:23:15--> 00:23:18

I lost around $1 even shut the doors of his massage. You know why?

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

He wants to show you how he treats an enemy.

00:23:24--> 00:23:25
