In London Allah wa salatu wa salam O Allah Shafi lamea Allah Allah, he was happy here, Manuela. I'm about
my dear brothers and sisters, this series of lectures is is focused at those people, those of us who teach the Quran
This is a great and sacred responsibility.
And a series of lectures is to help us to reflect about this, to introspect, and to try to ensure that we do this work in a way which will be a source of benefit for us, both in our lives as well as in the ACA and to correct those things which might be there in our teaching in our Nia in our methodology, which instead of being a source of hair become a source of problem for us, we need to get rid of such things if they are there.
I want to remind myself and you that to learn the Quran is fourth to teach the Quran is not fourth. So, let us not do something which is not for to begin with. And then do it in a way which is not in keeping with the Sunnah of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So that this thing which we need not have done if he had not done it, we would not be culpable but because we do it in the wrong way, we become punishable before Allah subhanaw taala that is not put ourselves into this trap. I want to begin by the famous Hadith narrated by author and if now follow the Allahu anhu whereas Allah is Allah Allah Allah wa salam is reported to have said hi rakuen Manta Allah maharana wa Lama who which
means the best among you are those who learn the Quran and teach it and in another generation instead of Wow, there is out. So that is hydrocone Manta, allemaal or Anna Oh Allah who the best among you are those who teach the Quran or who learned
how kumbhakarna alayhi salat wa salam. I think about this Nevis Allah is lm is giving a status to the Muslims. And the status is not based on our line edge. It is not based on our tribe. It is not based on our education, even it is not even based on how much wealth we have or how much power we have. It is based on our teaching and learning the Quran.
ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to let this thing sink in to us. One of the problems of education today, including the education of Quran is that we gave a great deal of emphasis and we spent a great deal of time in focusing on telling and we spend very little time on listening. And we spent no time at all on reflecting and thinking about what we heard. Now this is a very major
problem, because unless we are willing to listen and to reflect, then all the telling in the world cannot get cannot get us anywhere. And that's why I want to remind myself when you let us reflect on this hadith of NaVi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he said hydrocone Manta LML Khurana Allahu Allah alayhi salatu wa sallam, my brothers and sisters, I want to remind myself I knew that
teaching the Quran is a privilege, it is not a right. privilege has to be earned. It is not inherited. privileges come with responsibilities, and they are taken away if you fail to fulfill the responsibility. And taking a privilege for granted is the best way to lose that privilege. So let us think about this, the privilege of teaching the Quran
do we really want this privilege because it comes with responsibilities. And the responsibility is to teach it in the way that the first teacher of it taught it, the one who received the column the way he taught it.
And if you are unable to do that, for whatever reason, then I say it once again. Let us do ourselves a favor. Let us say I will learn the Quran. I will read the Quran, I will follow the Quran, but I will not teach the Quran because I find myself incapable of teaching it in the way of and to keep in keeping with the standard that Nabi sallallahu Sallam said for us
there are seven critical principles to teaching the Quran I will list them and inshallah we will do a series. This whole lecture series is based on these. The first one is a plus one near which we must check constantly. The second one is to love the Quran and to transfer this love into the students. The third one is to follow the Sunnah in the spirit of the teaching, the fourth is descoteaux knifes our own first the fifth is to understand what
We teach the sixth is to live that column ourselves. And the seventh one is to bring it alive for the students. On these basic seven principles, I have based this series of lectures, I asked Allah subhanaw taala to enable me to say that which is beneficial and to save us from that which is not beneficial, and to accept these lectures for his sake and to be pleased with them.
We come to the first of the principles of a class on Nia everything begins with the Nia, the famous had his own avisar Allah Allah Azza wa sallam narrated by Omar Abdel Catalano, which is the first Hadith in Bukhari, where Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam is reported to have said, in namale armello beneath the outcome of the deed, the reward of the deed the worth and value of the deed is based on the intention with which the deed has been done.
I remind myself and you for us that this Nia is something which is internal is Nia is something which is very shaky, which is very dicey, which does not remain constant. And therefore it is very, very important for us to constantly check this near, over and over again.
There are three elements to this near three elements to achieving a lasagna, the first one is to constantly remind ourselves and to make and remake this new year to teach only and only to please Allah subhanho wa Taala Jalla Jalla. Not to please anybody else, to teach the Quran only and only to please Allah subhanho wa Taala whose calamities number one, number two, is to teach with the intention of connecting the student to Allah subhanho that That must be the intention of teaching the Quran, not anything else. My intention of teaching the Quran is to connect the student to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah.
And to remember very clearly, that you cannot connect, unless you are yourself connected. There's no way that you can connect to Allah, when the current does not pass through you. If you want to connect an appliance to the source of power, you need a copper wire, you need a conductor of electricity, you cannot cannot you cannot connect a an appliance to the source of power using a rope using a threat. You have to have something which conducts the power. And that's what the student is. And that's what the teacher is, is the conductor which connects Allah subhanho wa Taala to the student. And the third and very important element of ensuring that we have the correct class on Nia
is never to take money to teach the word of Allah. My brothers and sisters, Islam is not a business, keep it free. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam never took money to teach the Quran. And let us not violate the son of Mr. Selim by charging money to teach Quran
talking about the issue of connecting the student to
to Allah subhanho wa Taala
I was sitting in a mother's narrow toffees of a mother. And one of the students was reciting his door for me. And he came to the ayat of the Quran where Allah subhanaw taala said, zero will or the funds okay.
So when he resided his I stopped him. And I said, what do you understand by this? So he said, massage, I don't know, I don't understand the meaning. So that's the first problem with us. We teach students to learn to memorize the Quran, and they don't even understand what they're memorizing. So I explained to him I said, Allah subhanaw taala saying, Go around look in the world and see how we have created things. paper with elk.
And as it happened, when we looked out of the door of the mother, sir, we saw some chickens grazing in the in the in the yard. So I told the student I said, Look at those chickens. What do you understand about this? Ayah from those chickens? A poor student. I mean, nobody ever asked him this question in his life. He was totally confused. He asked me there was I don't understand what he was saying. What What does the chicken have to do with the caliber of Allah
says the chicken has everything to do with the Kalam Allah. This is exactly what Allah subhanaw taala is saying to you look around, see my creation and see what I have created and wonder and glorify me when you see my creation. So I said to him, I said, Tell me what is the chicken eating? He says eating insects and it's eating, you know, things like that. So I said What happened? What will happen to you if you go and eat what the chicken is eating? Supposing The chicken is eating a lizard? What will happen if you eat the lizard? What will happen if you eat those insects he said I will die. I said he will die true. But the chicken is not dying. And when that chicken after the
chicken is finished eating those lizards and whatever else it's eating, if you
if you slaughter the chicken, and if you cook the chicken and eat it, the willow dies, No, I will not die. So as it is is not something that you need to wonder about and think and glorify a lost battle.
All About that he created this Buffalo, which can eat something which is poisonous to you, it goes through the system of that knock, but when you eat the flesh of that animal, the thing does not harm you. Even though if you are eating that thing by itself, it would have killed you.
This is the issue of connecting the student to Allah subhanaw taala and this is the, this must be the purpose why we teach how to how can I connect the student to Allah?
When my student learns from me, what is the effect of that on his on his, on his Salah, for example, is the student able to get better who show in his Salah when he learns the Quran from me? Is the student better able to connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala when he learns the Quran for me, this is the this is the last of the Nia that I'm talking about. And my brothers and sisters, I can assure you, I can tell you, I implore you, I beg you I request you do not spoil that the class by taking money to teach the word of Allah subhanaw taala Islam is not a business. teaching the Quran is not a job teaching the Quran is not a means of your livelihood, don't make it a means of your livelihood,
it is the means of earning the agenda of Allah subhanaw taala it is the means of gaining daraga before Allah subhanaw taala it is a means of opening the doors of hedaya for yourself and for for all those who come into contact with do not corrupt that do not spoil that influence by taking money which will destroy all of this, you will get your money, the students may well benefit. I'm not saying the students would benefit the students may well benefit but the benefit to you will be nothing. Allah subhanaw taala causes benefit to come from all sorts of sources. For example, you find you you see a a film on on natural history, on biology, of the world of different kinds of
things in the world, which is made by a non Muslim filmmaker. That film reminds us of Allah subhanaw taala when I watched this film, I see these these creatures of Allah subhanaw taala I keep saying Subhan Allah Subhana Allah all the time, but the one who made the film, does he get the benefit of the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala No, even though his work is causing benefit to others, because this is one of the big arguments that is that is used. People say about you see, after all, it is beneficial. Don't worry about it is beneficial. Even things that are done by people who are not even Muslim are still beneficial. But that does not mean that the person doing that thing is getting any
benefit from it. So I am saying to you when you are teaching the Quran, focus on yourself and say what is my benefit to it?
What is my benefit from this teaching? How am I benefiting from the teaching? And if the only answer you get is I'm benefiting because I'm getting a fee, then I'm sorry to say you have to seriously ask yourself, Is this why you're teaching the Quran? Do not do this to yourself? I request you do not do this to yourself, do not make teaching of the Quran do not do not corrupt your class with taking money. It's not my opinion. This has been the opinion of everybody from the masala salam to the Sahaba to all our Salah Casali who have all unanimously agreed that money corrupts and money spoils the class of the near money and fame. These are the two major spoilers of the class of the year. And
that is why I request you do not fall into this trap, teach only and only for the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala teach to connect the student to Allah subhanaw taala and teach because you
are focused on how you will benefit from this teaching.
The second critical requirement of teaching the Quran
is to transfer the love of the Quran into the students.
The Key of course is that
if we want to transfer the love, we have to feel the love for the Quran ourselves.
Love is infectious, but they won't catch it unless you have it.
And that's why we have to see Do I have it myself? My brothers and sisters.
The Quran Al Karim is the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is not a creative thing. It is a snippet of Allah Ronaldo, the Quran is the closest that we can come to Allah subhanaw taala in this life, in this life, we cannot see Allah monitor, but we can read his GitHub, we can read his column. The Quran is Allah subhanho wa Taala speaking to us and therefore it is very important for us to feel that.
Think about this. Tal Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is greater and and and above any examples that we can give and we do not give the example of a law. But to illustrate when we receive a letter from somebody.
We love it creates a feeling in our hearts. We it puts us
While on your face, many a time you would have seen somebody reading an email and the person is smiling and you don't know why is he smiling? But only that person knows why he's smiling because he's reading this email or reading this letter from somebody he loves. If we get a threatening letter, if we get a, any kind of hate mail from somebody, it makes us angry.
We don't like to read what is in that hate mail. We don't deserve that criticism or we feel we don't deserve it. And so it produces some feeling within us.
We get a lot of
mail which is which is really junk mail. It creates irritation in us or it leaves us indifferent. You know, something or the other happens when we read the Word of anybody. Something happens to us inside. So what happens to us when we read the Word of Allah subhanaw taala does anything happen?
Seriously asked this question.
Seriously ask this question. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala said about this Allah subhanaw taala. Very clearly Allah subhanaw taala mentioned his file. I will let him initiate on rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in mineralogy chirala Hawa gelato boom way to Leah de la Hema to Zara to me,
while be him yetta walk alone.
Very the moment in the believers are those who when the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala comes before them, the heart shiver with the grace and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala with the fear of Allah subhana wa Jalla kulu what is utterly, utterly vital to me when and when the Ayat of Allah subhanaw taala recited before them, the morning are those whose Eman increases whose faith increases whose and whose yochanan Allah subhanaw taala increases while arrabiata walk alone, and the result of this increased jackin is that they believe in Allah, then they rely on Allah subhanaw taala that they have tawakkol Allah Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala described these gave this to us as a diagnostic tool, to look at our hearts and to see what is happening to us inside ourselves. Allah subhanaw taala said about his great and magnificent column of his where he said loions
who Hashimoto Satya Hashimoto saw them in Casa de la
la la homeotic homeopathic.
Plus Renata gave the example. And he said that if this column were to be sent down onto a mountain, the mountain would humble itself minha Shatila because of the fear of Allah subhanaw taala because of feeling the glory and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala
the Kalam sent on a mountain What does it mean? Does it mean put the book on a rock? It means if the mountain understood describe, the mountain would humble itself
would be rent asunder.
ask myself what is happening to my heart. When I hear the column of Allah, when I read the column of Allah, when I recite the column of Allah, what is happening to my heart? Is there any change whatsoever inside me? And if there is no change, then I need to ask why is there no change? What is blocking that change? And I must remove that block. Because what is the point of reading some reading the column of Allah, what Allah subhanaw taala said, when the vicar of Allah comes before my slaves, their hearts shiver with the majesty of bicycle. And we repeat this over and over and over, and nothing happens to our heart. Does it make sense? Does it make any sense at all? My brothers
sisters, Allah subhanaw taala is speaking to us. Allah is speaking to us.
We need to feel that the Quran asks questions. We need to respond to the Quran.
Allah subhanaw taala in one place that Allah is Allah because Allah
is Allah not sufficient for his slave? What is the answer to this? It is not simply enough to say but I have a lot of it inside my heart, what am I saying? Is my Rob sufficient for me or not? And if my Rob is sufficient for me, then that has to be visible in my life. There has to be visible in a heart which is completely free from the fear of anything other than a loss rather than a heart that is so completely free from anxiety that it is always at complete peace. A heart which is in complete harmony. Shahada JIRA had to lay the village mahad is the great factory
The Isley mama Tabby, he was giving a lecture he was delivering a lecture there were 1000s of people listening to Chicago, Casa de la jolla
when a man came and he whispered something in his ear. And the people saw that Jacob de Gilani shut his eyes and kept silent for a couple of minutes. And then he continued his lecture.
And then after some time, the same man came back again and he whispered something into his ear. And the people saw that shareholder, de la la, once again, when did it when within himself, once again, he went into kind of Baraka, he shut his eyes. And then after a couple of minutes, he continued his lecture, when the lecture finished, his student asked him, they said to his, they said, they said to him, they said, you did something which we didn't see before.
And then narrated to him what happened? He said, What were you doing? Why did you shut your eyes and so on?
That one of my ships, which was to come into port, with a great deal of cargo, which would have meant a huge profit for me, the man came and told me that the ship sank
and all the cargo is lost.
And then I have incurred a huge monetary loss. So I went within myself to see what is the state of my heart. And I found Alhamdulillah there is no change in my heart.
So I said, are hamdulillah and I continued my lecture, he said, After some time, the man came back to me and he said, you have the earlier report was wrong.
Earlier report was wrong, the ship has come into the harbor, it is safe, your profit is safe, and your goods are safe. And the shelves that I went back into my heart to check the state of my heart is my heart's in the same state.
And I found my heart is come What is the meaning of say mahadiscom it means that my heart is not affected either by sadness or by happiness with what happens in the dunya.
You might say what is wrong with feeling happy? What is wrong with feeling happy, is that if you feel overly happy, then when the opposite happens, you feel overly sad, which means that your connection with the dunya is not with Allah subhanaw taala and demonstrated another thing which is a corollary from this, which is that the issue of the old our Salah, Salah, they had a different source of income, share, Hamza, Gilani was not giving this lecture. After taking a fee from the meridian. Here, there was no entry fees to his conference. He was not given this lecture in order to make money to run his house. He had a business he was a very wealthy man. He had a business which
ran his which ran his work of Dean and he did his Dean, his his work of Dean for free. Today we take his name with respect and his name is is worthy of all the respect that we can give him We ask Allah subhanaw taala to raise his dad and to give him Jonathan fiddles with Allah and to give him the the the company of Warhammer, Allah is Allah Allah, Allah, Allah and to be pleased with
Allah. But my point is that it is not sufficient for us to talk about our Allah and to talk about our only Allah and to talk about our Salah for Salah hain and to talk about the the teachers and an hour ima it is not sufficient to talk about them, it is important to actually emulate them and follow them and how are we following them? See, I see what they did the teaching and learning of the or something which they constantly monitored the effect of it on their own hearts, and they say what is happening to me as a consequence of teaching and learning the deep. I find myself when you let us not
teach the Quran in a way where our own love for the Quran is not demonstrated. As I said, Love is infectious, but they won't catch it unless you have it. And that's why it is very important for us to connect with the Quran. To think about Allah subhanho wa Taala has greatness to react to the caliber of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanaw taala ask questions, what is the answer that we have to give? Think about those answers. Let let the students think about those answers. As you are teaching the Quran, when the student decides an ayah, which is about the glory and magnificence Allah subhanaw taala stop the student and say, you just decided the eye toward the glory and
magnificence of Allah. What happened to you in your heart just now? are you connected with yourself? Is anything happening to you in your heart? Or are you just reciting following just the rules of the drill for example, which of course we have to follow, but it does read is meant to connect us with Allah subhanaw taala it is not meant to disconnect us from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So how are you ask the student? What has happened to you? Did you do Did you? Did you look into yourself? What is the state of your heart? I asked you and ask myself, when was the last time that a teacher did this for us? When was the last time that we as as teachers? When we did this for our students? Did you
stop the student at the end of an ayah? And did you ask him what has this What has this is done for you? What has this what has happened to you as a result of desire? When was when was the last time that a student
recited an ayah and he stood up and he said to the chef Alhamdulillah Today's lesson is overshare I want your permission to leave because this I want you to stay with this if I want to go and make terracotta Salah I want to repeat desire again and again and again and again and again. Because I want this to sink into me What a beautiful lesson I have learned from the Quran. I want to stick with this, please forgive me. I will come back today tomorrow for another lesson. But today's lesson legit and with this ayah so that I remain with this I when was that when when did this ever happen? Tell me.
When did this ever happen? Why should it not happen? Who is going to make it happen? If you and I are not going to make it happen? Who is going to make it happen?
I remind myself when you my brothers and sisters,
this is a privilege to teach the Koran is a privilege.
Honor it so that Allah subhanaw taala will then open your heart to his column.
Measure who's to say you will never understand the Quran until the Quran, the noozle of the Quran until it happens on your own heart.
Open the heart so that the noodle of the Quran will happen in our own hearts. And that is when the understanding of the Kalam of Allah will come that is when the chef will come. That is when Shara sudo will happen. That is when we will get the injera of the Kalam of Allah subhanaw taala when the real meaning the meaning is not just the the the dictionary meaning the linguistic meaning of the word, it is the meaning in terms of understanding the glory when you say Allahu Akbar, what is the meaning of Allah Akbar? Allah?
Allahu Akbar, what is the meaning of Allah Akbar? When you said al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen What is the meaning of ham? Not the linguistic meaning when I'm making hand of Allah, what is happening to me inside when I mean what is happening to me inside my brothers and sisters, I love the column of Allah because that is the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is the closest that we will ever come to Allah subhanaw taala in this life, love the Golem of Allah to Allah subhanaw taala will love us transfer this love into our students so that they will be connected to Allah Subhana Allah Jalla gelato My dear brothers and sisters. The third critical rule with regard to teaching the
Quran is to ensure that you follow the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Allah Azza wa sallam, in every respect, when you teach the Quran,
my brothers and sisters
whether it is the Quran, or whether it's anything else, the there is a right way of doing something. And that right way is to do it in the way of the person who is who does it in exemplary fashion, the expert in that subject.
Now with the Quran,
who is the expert in the subject? If you want to know how to teach the Quran, where must you eventually end up? You have to end up at the feet of Muhammad Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we have to learn to teach the Quran according to how he taught Torah. Allah subhanho wa Taala gave his example to us, where he said Lacan Allah comfy rasulillah he was rotten Hashanah, lemon, Canada, La Jolla. mala Hara was a Corolla kathira. Allah said that might not be is the best example. Verily, the example of Miami is a good example for you to follow for those who hope to meet with Allah and hope for the ACA. And who remember Allah subhanho wa Taala a great deal who will do a
lot of the Corolla.
Now this ayat refers to every single aspect of our lives the example or which is to be followed in every aspect of life. But remember that that if you apply it to teaching of the Quran, how much more Is it important to follow this ayah in the teaching of the Quran, which is the miracle which is the Marja of Namaste Allah Allah Allah Azza wa sallam, he is disabled Gita is the one on whom this Quran was sent. He is the one who is who was given the responsibility of teaching this caliber of Allah subhanaw taala now Allah Spano Tata,
not only gave Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, the, the his column, but he also taught him how to teach the scholar
and for that Allah subhanaw taala specified four steps yet through Allah him it was a key him while you are lemo Makita well hikma four things Allah subhanaw taala said, recite for them the column. So the column comes and abishola salam informs the people this is what Allah subhanaw taala said, they recite for them the column where you zacky him and prepare them, do their tasks, purify them, because the column of Allah subhanaw taala is pure. And for that column to rest for the column to sink in for that column to have a benefit. The place has to be pure. That place is our heart. We will look
At the issue of trust, get to know a little bit. But that is a very critical element of teaching the Quran, which is the purity of the body and the purity of the heart and the purity of the soul. The skeletal dusky enough is a critical element of the of teaching of the Quran, as specified by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And as taught by Allah subhanho wa Taala to his Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he was a key, what you are lemuel kita explain to them the meaning of what you have just recited.
asked you seriously those of you who think that teaching the Quran simply means heaps of the Quran simply means that you memorize the sound of the Quran, that the meaning of the Quran does not have any importance. And maybe you don't say that in your in so many words, but this is visible from your actions. This is visible from how you teach. Please tell me where did you get this from? Because this is not from the column of Allah subhanaw taala Allah, Allah Subhana Allah Muhammad kita part of the same teaching part of the same teaching it is part of the same process yet through Allah him it was a key him where you are Lee Mohamed Al Kitab al hikma, hikma is the implementation of what you
learnt the wisdom of it, the implementation of it, how to put it into practice. Just let me give you a very simple example. Allah subhanaw taala set up a masala masala Solomon for inform the people of mo Salah Europe has ordered you to establish salah and then what do you do? Go make Udo go mercosul clean your clothes clean the place. Do descoteaux knifes use a key him while you are limo. Makita How are we supposed to establish this Salah? Well here is the way to establish the salah Rasul Allah is Allah Salaam explained the different kind of salah and he then he went to the demonstration of the Salah, where he said sallu Kamara to Mooney usili which is the Al hikma we see in the Salah, the
entire process of teaching of the Quran, where Nabi sallallahu Sallam informed you through Allah him if he was a Game Boy, you are lemo Makita Baba hikma, my brothers sisters, follow the Sunnah teach the Quran with love. There is one very high tech instrument that we find in every durotar is in the hand of every postcard of his and what is that great high tech instrument. It is a stick law. However Lakota level Do you think you can beat the Quran into your students? Is that a way of of teaching them the love for the column of Allah? No wonder many of them when they come out of the his mother's they actually learn to hate the Quran. They do not learn to love the Quran, because they
are being taught to memorize something they don't even understand. And that memorization is also being done with force. How, how retarded is this? How, what a terrible way, whoever invented this way May Allah subhanaw taala Forgive me since it is high time we gave up this way of teaching. Number two, focus on on application, every single thing that we read, in the Quran, everything that you teach in the Quran, focus on the application of it, how are you willing to apply this? This is what your job is saying? How are you now going to apply it and the last one is reflect on that core and reflect on those words. Reflect on the on the caliber of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala said about
this for Allah Tada, baronial Khurana Hulu minocqua. In surah, Mohammed Allah says, Don't they reflect on this caliber of Allah? Or is it that their hearts are locked up? I know this ayah did not come for you. It came for the people who refuse to accept Islam. But if Allah subhanaw taala were to ask us the same question today. What answer would you and I give? Do we reflect on the Quran? Maybe the people who are not Muslim they don't reflect on the Quran. At least they have an excuse to say that we never heard the Quran. We don't know what the Quran is. We do not we do not believe in Allah. But what about us we believe in Allah we believe in his Nabil Mohammed Salah Salah. We
believe in the caliber of Allah subhanaw taala della della Lu, we love Allah we claim to love Allah, we love Mohamed Salah Salah we claim to llama masala Salah, yet we do exactly the same thing that the others do, which is that we do not reflect on the Kalam of Allah the Quran for those of us who listen to it is a tune maybe we like to listen to it, but we have no clue what is being said we do not understand we do not reflect we do not introspect, and we do not apply it in our lives. What is the Sunnah of teaching and learning? What do we know from the Sahaba? The very famous called the very famous story of Abdullah evening over radi Allahu anhu Omar, Abdullah Omar Abdullah nama
memorized Surah Al Baqarah. And he took 12 years, he took 12 years to memorize roto Baqarah. Just think about this, how many times we tell these stories without any understood
Anything we just said 12 years and we move on to the rest of the next part of the story. But I want you to stop here. And I want you to ask yourself this question. Why is this man taking 12 years to memorize just one surah of the Quran? Why is he taking 12 years? He is a man for whom Arabic is his mother tongue. He is he is the son of Maribel, Delano. He has those genes in him. He is one of the most intelligent of the xaba that we know. He is a personal student of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was one of the most favorite students of a sorceress Allah. He was the one about whom his his his enthusiasm and his rigor in following the Sunnah was such a big deal
on our mother. She said that I have never seen anyone follow the Sunnah so closely as Abdullah evening O'Meara delana.
This man, despite all of these advantages, he takes 12 years to memorize one surah. And when he finished that he was so happy, he gave away my gift without any slaughtered a camera, and he invited his friends for a meal. They asked him, I said, Why did you take 12 years to memorize one surah? He said, because of the methodology of teaching of an obese Allah salam, and our methodology of learning.
How many times have you heard this? Have you heard this story? How many times have you heard this story? And what have you done to change your mind to your methodology of teaching and learning? Let me ask you this question before I'll ask you this question. Well, like
he said, our methodology was that we would go to a salon, and we would take 10 is from him, then we would memorize those if we would understand those if we would go back to our solos or a salon to give us the explanation of those if we would reflect on those if we would look into our lives to see if we were living by them. If there were any akam in those if we would bring them we would follow those in our lives. Once we had established all of that, then we would go back to the source lesson and for the for the next time. And he said that is why it took us so long. Remember, this was not the methodology only of Abdullayev Noah. This was the methodology by which the Sahaba is one of
mine. This is how they learn the Quran.
My question to you is how come you and I don't follow that methodology anymore. The civilized LLM never took payment to teach the Quran. I challenge you give me an example when I took money to teach the Quran I challenge you give me one example where any of the Sahaba who took money to read the Quran? Abu huraira is to teach the Quran or the Allah know Abdullah Masada Delano is to teach the Quran Saad bin Muhammad Allah knows to teach the Quran as mud bingeable
at the Quran, Abdullah Omar Abdullah was at the Quran. Tell me which of them took money to teach the Quran and then tell me how come you take money to teach to teach? Where is your money from what do you want? I'm giving you the delight of the of the prophets Allah Salah, and the DeLisle of his Sahaba ridhwan la la McBain Allah He neither you nor I need any other than anyone else who's willing to give me cannot be superior to the delille of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where is God? How do you charge money to teach the Quran? Allah subhanaw taala is witness I have committed communicated and I have told you what I have to tell you
create by tomorrow why is it that we don't create a Bible man? Create a by tomorrow pay the teachers to teach the Quran from the Bible man. Don't take money from the students don't make money out of the Quran. The Quran is not your business. The Quran is not business the students are not your market. They are Don't try to grab market share from the Quran while I teach the Quran, according to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam if you can, if you cannot then don't teach but do not violate the Sunnah of Muhammad Sallallahu Salah there is no Baraka there is no nor in leaving the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in order to teach the Quran for God's sake. That is an
absolute oxymoron. How can you do that? If we don't even we should not even do that with no other aspects of our lives. Do not leave the sun up in the upbringing of your children. Do not leave the sun in running your businesses do not leave the sun now in running a government How can you leave the sun now in teaching and learning of the Quran? Please correct yourself. And as I said, teaching is not for if you cannot do it according to the Sunnah for your own reasons, make thoughtless manohara stop teaching, learn the Quran that is fourth. Teaching is not fun. Let somebody who can teach it according to some let them teach you if you can do it, live it but formed by a beautiful
man formed by germar make do something which is beneficial where it helps everybody. And if you can't do that, live it. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy for you. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to be pleased with you. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to enable you to teach the Quran according to the Sunnah
And then to show the the back of that and to show the knower of that in your column, in your lives in your hearts. May Allah subhanaw taala make your Dharma bull madness wanna fill your life with her? May Allah subhanaw taala give you a great show and your Salah May Allah subhanaw taala make you shining beacons of guidance for all the students who come to you and may you be their leader to lead them into general fizzles with Allah. The ladies on the day of judgment was Allah Allah Allah Allah will Karim Allah Allah He was abused by erotica.
