Villa Romana Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen or salat wa salam ala shadowfell, MBA well, mousseline mohammadu Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, wa aalihi, wa sahbihi wa sallam de Sleeman kathira kathira. Farmer By the way, they will just as we've been talking about the importance of the other way of approaching the Quran
I just I remind you and myself that other is not merely being respectful as in you know, ensuring the holla and Voodoo and sitting in us in a
position which is respect respect for each other is really if you look at it, it is the entire methodology
of approaching the Quran and if you look at it, this is true for for any form of learning,
there is the learning which is the data or the information, but before we get there, there is what needs to be done in order to arrive at that in a way that it is beneficial or it can be beneficial for us. So, in if you take technology for example, before we can pick up a book on any advanced technical subject, it will be necessary for us to read several books and to become familiar with and to learn
the basic principles of that technology
on which the advanced book will be based, but the advanced book will not have those principles in it. So, if you want to understand the knowledge in the advanced book, then we must prepare ourselves
by doing something else, which will enable us to understand what is in that advanced book.
To give you another example, if you were a farmer,
and you had been given this gift of these
seeds, for this particular crop or this flower you are growing or whatever it was, but something which are the seeds are extremely superior, very, you know, very good and capable of giving you a tremendous results very beautiful result.
So you've got the seeds, right, the absolutely top of the line best in the world seeds. But if you took those seeds, and if you just scattered them on the ground, what do you think will happen?
Nothing will ever the birds will eat the seeds or the insects will eat the seeds and that's it finished. Notice even though you had the best seed possible.
Alright, Drew, you took the seed, you didn't just scatter it on the ground just scratched the surface of the ground and you threw the seed and you cover it up.
Now what will happen? Now maybe one or two will germinate but that's about it because maybe the soil pH is not correct. Maybe the soil is too acidic or too alkaline for that seed. Maybe the title is toxic, maybe the soil has organisms in it which will destroy the seeds. Maybe the soil is too dry or too wet or something is wrong with the soil. As a result of it even if one or two of those seeds germinate, they will probably die soon thereafter and you will still not get any crop. So what does the wise farmer What does he do? What does the farmer who understands farming What will he do if he gets if he gets you know the access to high quality seeds. The first thing he does is he does not
even touch the CD it doesn't even look at the CD takes the seed and keeps it in a safe place to ensure that the seed is not damaged. Then the farmer focuses on the soil.
raises it is not immune doesn't guarantee carried in his pocket he the CD is in his home or somewhere. He focuses on the site.
He prepares the soil. He plows the soil he windows he he grades the soil he
breaks up the mix it friable.
He checks it for toxicity he checks it for microorganisms which which might be harmful. He checks the pH value the acidity and alkalinity of the soil. He checks it for carbon carbon content is Jackson 4444 whatever is required for the growth of those seeds.
He makes sure
Or that the soil is suitable for planting those seeds.
Then he plants the seed, and then he waters the seed
the three steps if you have the best seed three steps to get the best results, prepare the soil.
plant the seed properly the way it is supposed to be planted, there are some seeds which need to be planted deep. There are other seeds which need to be planted right to the surface where even where the sunlight can hit the seed.
If you're planning for example, and this is something I strongly recommend, instead of lawns, grow wild flowers, Grove wildflower meadows, they are very good for butterflies and bees, they're very good for small birds, they're very good for the environment, they need practically no maintenance, no irrigation, they're very good in every single way. And once you're plugged in them and it is said then year after year, it will keep going by itself you'll have to nothing, it's a very beautiful side then sit down there with a cup of coffee and enjoy enjoy the side of nature.
Now wildflower seeds when you use cat unit to actually scatter them ground to be ready. But after that you scatter them and you either walk on them or you run a roll on them. But to ensure that sunlight still hits the seeds,
the different kinds of things, some seeds you have to plant deep some some so now what you do is three as I said three things firstly prepare the soil that's absolutely critical, whether it's wildflower, whether it is food crops, whatever, prepare the ground, without preparing the earth without preparing the soil, no seed can germinate secondly, plant the seed in the right way. And third thing is water the seed
water it it needs moisture Everything needs moisture in order to germinate and grow later on it may not need I mean it still needs the moisture but it does not need you to irrigate it whatever rainfall is enough for it, but it needs moisture,
prepare the soil, plant the seed the way it should be planted and then water it.
Now why am I giving you this lecture on agriculture when we are talking about the Quran because that's the example.
That is the example to illustrate what we need to do when we study the Quran, when we study Islam, and if we want to benefit from it as Muslims,
I'm talking about the approach of a Muslim to the caliber of Allah subhanaw taala as distinct from the approach of somebody who is not a Muslim, somebody who's not a Muslim can applaud the Kalam of Allah as a book of literature, which he is interested in for the fact that it is a marvel of Arabic grammar for the fact that it's a Marvel in the in the way of construction of sentences, it is neither poetry or prose. It is something else it is unique. What not so the person is approaching the Quran as a linguistic Marvel. He's not interested in any he dies from the Quran. He doesn't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala he's not looking for any lessons to learn. He's definitely not
looking for anything to practice in his or her life. They are approaching the Quran as a literary phenomena, which they appreciate as a literary phenomenon.
I'm not talking about people who are going into the Quran through you know, with negative views I'm talking to somebody was positive us as a Arabic scholar, language linguistic linguist.
But I'm not I'm not that's not how I approach the world. That's not how you operate overall, you should approach the Quran, you as a Muslim.
How do we approach the Quran? Not as a linguistic Marvel and you know how many times the noon comes there and no, we approach the Koran as the kalaam of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is Allah talking to me.
This is Allah speaking to me.
And speaking to me in the beautiful voice of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because that's how I heard that.
I did not hear Allah Subhana Allah speaking, I did not hear deliberately, Salam speaking I heard Muhammad sallallaahu salam speaking.
I believe that this is the Kalam of Allah not because Allah spoke to me and told me directly
not because Mohammed Salah Sallam told me that this is the caliber of Allah. So when I accept the Quran is the Kalam of Allah I'm automatically accepting Muhammad Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam as being completely and totally truthful. And as the Nabi as the soul of Allah subhanho wa Taala after whom there is not
automatically anybody who said the Koran
Is the column of Allah has borne witness and has verified and certified the truthfulness of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Of course, that certification is not needed virus or Salah because Allah Subhana Allah gave him that certification.
But when the person is saying it when I'm saying that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was truthful, and I believe him, and I trust him, then this is my declaration of allegiance to Rasul Allah hasten Allah hi yourself.
So how is this how's the my agriculture example related here?
As I said, if you have the best seat in the world, it will do you no good unless you prepare the soil. And then you plant that seed in the way it is to be planted, and then you water the seed, then inshallah you can look forward to the best possible harvest that you were that you will ever have because the seed is capable of giving you that harvest. How's it related here? It's written exactly the same way. The best seed is the word of Allah.
In the color this exam Allah
very the most truthful of speech is the Kitab of Allah subhana
wa COVID Howdy, howdy, Mohammed in Salalah. Haile UI he was able to sell them and the best of the best of guidance is the guidance of Mohammed Salah Salah. We've got the best possible see.
But what should we do first,
we need to first prepare the soil, where is the seed to be planted? What is that soil, that soil is the heart. The soil is the heart of the movement.
The heart must be prepared. What is the meaning of preparing the heart? The heart must be freed of all toxicity
hatred, greed, jealousy, envy.
you're just being edited.
Just love for things. desire for possessions.
Love for sensations
list is long,
just like the soil.
Lots of stuff in the soil which is toxic.
But believe me even if you leave one in there, that one will interfere with the growth of your seat. So prepare the soil Duska to knifes.
Butterbeer Tula clock
and the clock are a reflection of the knifes
what is the proof of a pure knifes pure o'clock
who had the most beautiful knifes who had the pure snuffs Muhammad Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and the reflection of that was
in the gala Hakuna de ellos Rhonda said you are on the best of luck, you're on the best of manners, you have the best manners.
The o'clock the manners of the island are a reflection of his knowledge.
The knowledge of an alum, man or woman
is what is expressed in there o'clock.
What knowledge they have, which they do not practice, which is not especially that Allah May Allah protect us from ourselves will become your hijjah will become a proof and evidence against ourselves on the Day of Judgment.
When Allah will say you will know but you didn't practice why.
To prepare the soil, the heart does get the nerves and the whole body and the whole behavior live which is that we have to Lukla
number to plant the seed
the other have received
The Koran al Karim,
with a state and in a state of complete and total submission to Allah subhanaw taala. in a state where we are awed
by this majestic truth,
that Allah subhanho wa Taala chose to speak to us
in a state where we consider this to be what it is, which is the greatest possible honor that could have been bestowed upon us.
That Allah subhanho wa Taala allowed.
He spoke to us and he allowed us to repeat that speech with our tongues. And that's the reason why the tongue should be kept clean.
Obviously, physically, but I mean, also clean in the sense of free from kozub.
free from lying and free from cheating and free from hypocrisy and free from backbiting and free from slandering and free from May Allah forgive us free from bad language foul language. Today, it's a Takia column
to use bad words and filthy words and profanity for everything.
On our way, just look at that.
stand up comedy.
Except for exceptions, stand up comedy is full of profanity.
I don't know what what what's so great
a bad word, a curse word with everything.
I mean, I'm not going to repeat those things. I mean, this is not the place for it. It will be against the other of the Quran for me to use bad language. But you know what I'm talking about. supposed to be funny. stand up comedy full of proud of profanity. You cannot even watch a show.
a comedy show,
which is wholesome. This is what I want is become
who are the highest paid YouTubers,
people who give commentary of computer games using profanity.
And you will be amazed I won't tell you here but just go and google it up and see who are the highest paid YouTubers, you will be amazed it'll blow your mind to see the kind of money they make.
value add to the world, zilch zero,
nada, zero negative, because there within quotes contribution
is to fill the air with more and more and more profanity.
So approach to the
number one, prepare the heart. And third, we have to lock the tongue, the eyes, the years,
the jawara the hands and feet must all become obedient to Allah subhanaw taala. And all of that comes from the heart.
When the heart is obedient, the body becomes obedient. And the heart is full of arrogance. The body is full of arrogance.
But how we walk is full of arrogance how we talk it's full of arrogance.
That's why I was rather I said do not walk on the earth as if
we don't walk on the earth with arrogance.
And he said you are not taller than the mountain and heavier than the Earth.
So prepare the soil then approach which is plant the seed the way it is to be planted which is approach the Quran and approach the Hadees also Salah with that reverence with love
with a feeling of intense gratitude.
JAL hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah hamdulillah I could be doing many things.
I'm not talking about Haram. I could be doing many things. For example, I could be watching a game of football or basketball or cricket or whatever game just now.
I could be reading some book. I could be going for a walk, I could be going for a run or whatnot. Instead, Allah subhanaw taala chose me to sit here and talk to you about the Quran of about his color about Alcala Al Quran. And Allah tala chose you to sit and listen to this.
Just that we need to be grateful for because our 100 Allah insha Allah knows that every second that you and I spend together in
This gathering is a second spent in the Nevada of Allah in the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is going on to your skills or my skills on the day of judgment and this will have a positive effect in sha Allah on our Iman and it will inshallah be the means of attracting and we beg for the mercy and forgiveness of others matter.
So this thankfulness, the intense gratitude Yala, you chose me
to read your column, you chose me to recite your color, you chose me to understand your color, you chose me to try to implement your color in my life to the best of my ability, you chose me to, to discuss and talk about and listen to and and and speak about your column Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah.
prepare the soil, plant the seed as it is to be planted as you come to the third one which is water, the seed
what is the watering of the seed? In this context of of learning, the current
watering of the seed in the context of learning the Quran Al Karim is the tears in the eyes, especially in the agile, especially in Su, where we beg Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah and that's why I give the example of the
farmer. Nobody understands Allah and nobody is connected more to Allah than a farmer.
Because the farmer does everything in his power.
He prepares the soil you plant the seed in the right way. He waters the seed. He has dug integration, irrigation trenches. Oh, he has, he has dug guy, he has taken all kinds of wet on measures for water and soil conservation. He has put in the manure, he has done everything, but he knows.
But he knows
there's no guarantee that he will get a fantastic crop. And so what does he do? After doing all that he raises and zeolites in your hands? Yeah, Robbie does yours. Yeah, no, it is yours.
Yeah, like give me the best possible harvest from what I have done.
youngness me make up for my deficiencies.
That is the watering
for the fire, but it's the water outside for us. This is the water
or whatever the Llano quarter from Mr. Solomon said that dry eyes are a sign of a hard heart. ask Allah to soften our hearts. May Allah protect us Our hearts are like stones and worse than stoneware last rantala mentioned he gave this exact example let's say that hearts are hard as stones. And they are even harder than stores because sometimes stones will split rocks will split asunder with the glory and majesty of Allah and they will split a Sunday and what of those two.
So we come to the
total number, which I explained do this my last class the story.
So when we came to the end of these if
we're not in alfalfa,
gardens of the growth,
and I explained that this is a lot of talking about his creation, which we can see, then Allah subhanho wa Taala, after talking about his creation, which we can see and we know that we didn't pay this thing, so there is
now Allah, Allah talks to us about that which we cannot see, which we can never see. Which we which is unperceivable, which is Allah Ray.
And which we know about only because Allah told us, we are the question we were talking about, What? Why do I need religion? I said, This is why you need religion, because this information that I'm going to share with you now, which Allah subhanaw taala told us,
is nowhere else to be found except in the color of Allah. If Allah had not told us, we would not have known. And
another question, which is even more important, you might say, well, if I don't know so what
if I don't know so what suppose I asked you do you know, do you know anything about nanotechnologies? No, I don't know.
Dyson. Now, you know, it's important to say why
am I interested?
I might be if I if I need to use something. I use it. But I mean, I'm not interested in knowing how the whole thing works. I'm not interested in nanotechnology.
But in this case,
should you be interested in the akhirah? Do I need to know what is the aka Do I need to know what happens after
death? Yes. Why? Because I will die.
I will die and you will die too.
It's not something that I don't need to know because I am going to walk down this path. And that part of it. What happens after death? Only the one who does not die can tell me. And if he didn't tell me I will know. And I will not know and if I don't know, it is something that is critical to me, which I absolutely need to know.
And do what he told me.

Michio Kaku in his book The Great physicist,

and when I heard read that statement I said to myself, there's one or this is a lot of nano data explaining this I know 40 hottie sama over gana Baba,

you know, the Big Bang Theory, and the massive expansion of the universe is when the energy runs out, it there will be a massive contraction which is called the grid crunch. A lot theory of course, but this is a theory.
And he then he makes a statement he says that if mankind wants to scrape the ni lays at the annihilation, which will be the result of the grid crunch, it's like the whole thing done into into one black hole.
He said, If mankind wants to escape that is that they will have to make doors in the heavens to go out from meaning they have to escape this dimension.

and the mountains and the heaven will be opened and will become gates
and the mountains will be moved away from their places and they will be as if they were a mirage. See the beauty of the construction of the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned algebra. He said these mountains these are the symbol of, of of,
of stability of firmness of strength of power of weight of massive structures.
If you want to talk about something which is massive and huge and immovable What else would you say except mountain

for Allah said, What is people?
Verily, they did not look for a reckoning in Nome gammu lie on July 7, they did not believe in this accounting. They did not look forward to that they didn't even expect it, they never thought it will happen. People will deny that there is a day of reckoning. And instead woca will be adding IQ data. But instead they belied and they denied and they marked the I art the evidence that Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam brought the column of Allah the Quran, and whatever the sorceress Allah told us about a rave about the Day of Judgment these people they belied our is completely

The fact that you denied is recorded the fact that you did not deny is also recorded.
May Allah record for us that we did not deny that we accepted and we did our best to live our lives, the way Allah Subhana Allah ordered us to do.
And then Allah makes a statement, he's a first loco falana, zydeco Illa. So test this now. There's the results of your evil actions and no increase Shall we give except in torment,
no increase, accepted, dormant.
And then finally, Allah, Allah gives us I add which are Mashallah of goodness, because this is the beauty of the Quran Allah subhanaw taala mentioned one and then imbalances but the other. So Allah mentioned the people who are disobedient and our level is mentioning the people who are not disobedient. And then Allah Subhana Allah makes it very categorical statement and we come to that
call last my own IV
and very lean for the code, may Allah make us all among the matakohe inshallah, there will be success which is done in the real world.
And then Allah, Allah draws for us to imagine some of the seeds of Jannah and of course, we know that these what Allah has described are that the reality is something which we cannot conceive of, in our minds today and that will show us some things which will, you know, in a matter of speaking blow our minds when we see something Mr. Subhana, Allah

an ample calculated gift according to the best of their good deeds jazza Mira, big ol Paul and his ARB.
See the mercy almost ran into a person may have done many things in his life.
Obviously not of them, not all of them have equal quality. And you know what I know one of the simplest ways is just reflect back on your life and think about the time when one day somewhere and I can remember the exact time and place
where I prayed to Ricardo salah and Alhamdulillah ask Allah subhanaw taala to accepted the sweetness of their identity till today.
And this was not in the Haram or anywhere This was in a, in a very ordinary place.
And I'm sure all of us have that. Right. I'm not saying this to describe ibusuki
I'm just saying this because all of us have that. You all over the gel, I have a memory of something we did which somewhere in our heart it said insha Allah Allah subhanaw taala accepted this and if you create this in your life may do something which is a duinen secret, do it by yourself, where I where you are sure insha Allah, that Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, like what you did.
And give that because this is a great treasure that we have from Allah.
So Allah subhanaw taala if you're having in your life, though, all of these things, Allah tala takes the best of them, and rewards you for all of them equal to the reward of the best. This is the beauty of Allah. So just to give an example, something is worth $1. The other one is $10. One is, you know, $500,000 or one of the million dollars one of the billion dollars worth, Allah will reward everything at $1 billion.
This is the mercy of Allah grant.
