From another human $100 Bill alameen wa salatu salam ala shadowfell MBA well mousseline Muhammad Rasul, Allah is on it while he was having to sell up the Steven Kaziranga, see Rama God. My dear brothers and sisters are hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen we are in our lesson of reflecting on the Quran. And this is the absolute critical thing that we need to do because the Kalam of Allah Subhana, Allah delallo came for this reason was sent for this reason that we should reflect on it and we should practice it in our lives. The beneficiaries of this are we as human beings as the bad of Allah subhanaw taala as the slaves of Allah, the Kalam of Allah came for our benefit, and it will
be the it would be very wretched on our part, not to benefit from it and to lose it because we don't take the trouble to understand it. So it is very important that we
benefit from it now whether we are benefiting or not at the very basic level of perception itself. Allah Subhana Allah gave us a meter give us something to judge for ourselves. It's not about others. It is about ourselves. Where a lot rather than a set interval moment out, we live in a shutdown regime in our miuna Lavina is looking at Allahu wa Jalla gulabo What is that to Leah de la heemeyer to whose other tome imana wa ala of behavior to work alone, which means the believers are only those who when Allah subhanho dolla dolla dolla who is mentioned, they feel in their hearts, they feel a the awe and glory and majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala
that harsh shiver with that they had their hearts Virgilio kulu, something happens to their hearts, and when his eye at the Quran are recited unto them, or maybe they see the Ayat of Allah subhana wa Taala in the world around them, then they
this increases their image data to me man our behavior to work alone and the automatic and obvious result of these two things is that they have faith and our call and trust in their rub jelajah law.
My brother and sisters, let me ask myself and you if this happens to us?
Does it happen to us that when Allah is mentioned, our hearts shiver with the glory and majesty of Allah. Remember, this is something that we should ask ourselves and for those who teach caught on let me ask you this question. When you are teaching Quran, when you're when your students are doing hips, do you stop them and ask them what is the result of this reading on you right now as you are reading as we speak? How is this column of Allah subhanaw taala affecting you? view as this question if you do not ask this question, believe me you are doing a great disservice to them and yourself. Please don't do that. Ask this question. Ask yourself this question what is happening to me when I
listened to the student reciting the Quran, and believe me, this has nothing to do with the tune of the sound or whether he has a good voice or a good recitation or not. This is the column of Allah subhanaw taala It doesn't matter how that person is reciting it is still the caliber of Allah.
So the effect on the heart, if it is only because of the tuneful sound so really our ASCII wedges
to be Izmir kizi Ganon overlay
if the effect on your on your curb on your heart is only because the person is reciting in a beautiful tone and that is just like listening to a song. Please understand this. This is not how the column of Allah subhana wa Taala is to be approached the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala the effect of it is because of the words because of what Allah subhanaw taala is saying, and that's the reason why it's so important to understand what the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala is all over. So that is asked
if this happens to us vajilla coloboma is it happening? To me Mara is adapting arrabbiata cologne is it happening? And if it does not happen, is it a matter of concern? are we losing sleep over this? And if you are not leaving it losing sleep over this, then this is a matter of your bigger concern. Why are we not losing sleep over this? That I read the Koran I listened to the Quran but nothing happens to be my heart is like a rock nothing changes. That is why I've been one of the
personal and favorite special students of our solar setup, who dedicated his whole time with Salah only to learning from him. He said the dryness of the eyes is a sign of the hardness of the heart.
There are lots of animals that are to give you tears. Because Allah subhanaw taala Zed
Zed, Allah has made the fire of jahannam haram on two kinds of eyes, the eye that weeps for the glory and magnificence of Allah, and the eye that stays awake for the production of the Muslims. May Allah make us among those whose eyes are,
to be counted with the eyes of those whose to weep for the glory and majesty of Allah, out of their love for a lot of their desire to meet Allah Subhana thelemic May Allah fill our hearts with this desire to meet him della della Lu.
So, let us, let us see if we fit or whether we are those whose eyes weep, listening to poetry, watching movies and listening to dirt urges, but not when listening to the glorious and magnificent column of Allah subhanho wa Taala It's a strange thing that we don't find anything strange with this that we
passion passionate. If somebody curses us, but nothing happens to our heart, then we listen to the caliber of Allah.
When somebody is cursing us, that is a lie. We are not what that person is saying yet. It affects our heart. But the truth is the Paul has easy Kitab Allah
the best, the most truthful speech is the Kitab of Allah. But that doesn't affect us.
In that Allahu Allah, Allah you think about this, how?
How terrible is this state to be in a state of our spiritual
bankruptcy, which is which is something to really seriously think about. Now, if that is if that is not making us worried, then that itself is a very big sign that we have not really you know, that our our human is so incomplete and so weak? On what basis will be go before and that's why I lost montilla called the ignorant cattle. And then is that
they are worse that get
asked myself when you do we reflect on the fact that what we are listening to is the actual speech of Allah Subhana Allah revealed to Rasul Allah is our solemn, from the Creator, to the best of his creation? Do we reflect on this? Do we reflect on the fact that we are live with that what we are listening to are the exact words that were revealed to Russell as a seller and wish the world heard for the very first time in his voice?
This is something that I marvel at and it's a it's one of the majors signs of the sadaqa of the truthfulness and integrity of rosov that he never changed anything even though in some cases to change would have been a logical thing to do right to change would have been a logical thing to for example, wherever Allah subhanaw taala used the term coal would mean say
Coca Cola whatever, all right.
Cool. Now, if
Allah subhanaw taala is a call is saying say this.
When you when you are conveying that
would you still say say
you want to write
so if I suppose if I tell you,
please say to so and so.
This, please say to so and so come tomorrow morning, at 10 o'clock.
What would you say to that person?
You would say? Come tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock.
You wouldn't say say come tomorrow morning 10 o'clock.
But the the the Sahaba was also solemn, the integrity of his conveying the message was that whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala said, masala is conveyed that was conveyed the exact thing to us. It didn't change anything in it.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala
guarded that, and I lost around that promise to get it. And he got it. He got it the words he guarded their meanings. He guarded their understanding. And he guarded the way these words were applicable were to be implemented.
So do we reflect on this fact that we are listening that what we're
Listening to when we listen to the Quran
are the actual words the exact words that were revealed to Rasul Allah? is Allah Allah Harrison?
Do we reflect on the fact that his message contains information that is critical to our success in this world and the next?
And are eager to know what that information is?
Or is it that we know all of this but when it comes to finding out and knowing we are lazy, we are lacks, we don't know which one?
Are we aware, as we recite that Allah Subhana Allah is listening to us in real time,
and is mentioning us by name to those around him around his ash, how he overwhelmed with this with all and gratitude? And do you fall into sujood and thankfulness and see Allah you are taking my name on your rush.
are we aware that as we are reciting in Salah
that what we are residing in Salah is what was realized or celebrated. And the Sahaba who are witness to that revelation
would listen to it in the voice of the best Chari, whoever lived because he was the one to whom it was revealed.
How he ascended about this? Or are we those who a curse can transform what the word of Allah leaves or moved?
What kind of an experience it must have been
so deeply personal, and so incredibly meaningful?
Do we reflect on the fact that this word is the most truthful word that can ever exist? And that it is protected in its exactness in its meaning? And in its application? By the one who spoke it? Allah subhanho wa Taala?
Do we reflect on the fact that the Quran changed people who were despised in the world and made them into role models? Who were looked up to?
Do we reflect on the fact
that the Quran this Quran transformed people and changed their destination from jahannam? To Jenna?
And then do we ask, what what is it doing for me?
What is it doing for me?
Do we reflect on the fact that Allah, Allah has mentioned us in the Quran?
And also mentioned what will happen to each of us, depending on the qualities that he mentioned?
And then, as is the demand of intelligence? Do we search for ourselves in the Quran?
Because Allah mentioned us in terms of the qualities
and imagine what happens to our what will happen to the people with those qualities?
Do we reflect on the fact that the Quran is Shiva? a cure for illness? The most serious of which?
Is the illness of the heart called mythique.
hypocrisy? And then do we seek that cure? before it is too late?
Do we reflect on the fact that the Quran teaches that the Quran
teaches us how to ask Allah? And then do we ask Allah as he told us to ask
and see the results of our door being accepted?
Do we do this?
Do we reflect on the fact that the Quran gives solace to the breathed
comfort to the aggrieved? Safety from danger? takes away our fears and anxieties? And then do we seek these things from the Koran before we run to anyone else for help?
Who do we turn to when we are bereaved? Who do we turn to when there is a problem? Or do we turn to when we are afraid?
in whichever way?
Who do we turn to when we are anxious?
Do we turn to the Koran do we turn to Allah subhanaw taala or do we seek help from others? People and material money?
wish to do first?
If I have a headache, what do I what is the first thought in my mind Allah
There's nothing wrong with taking the medicine. I'm talking about what's the first thought is my first thought to say let me make that
an ask Allah
I still remember my dear dear friend, Allie Josh
and amatola Live from Java.
I went to visit him one day when he was sitting in his house and he had a
tied very tight around his forehead down is going around his head
and I knew he was to have migraines so I could see well that you know, he had a magnet
so as I said, while he was around Dr. Savage default for some reason used to call me doctors.
So what goes on on dogs? Are you ready? Please come and sit.
So I said, Guys Alhamdulillah water ciao.
Oh, Alhamdulillah I'm very well.
So I said, Sorry. How's the headache? He's taken as
I said with di D. Did you take any medicines? Oh Leanna Yes, I've taken
a galley What did you take?
He's a middle America do I?
Miss you do I will say what I gathered gather is that
Marilyn can do either just
he said there is the daughter of my hubby of my beloved
for pain. Tell me what is a better or bigger medicine than that. He's talking about the dua of Rasul Allah is Allah Salah.
Where there is another there is a pain. Put your hand on the spot where there is pain and say Bismillah Bismillah Bismillah three times
Bismillah Bismillah Bismillah Allah will live a hora de minshall Rima Zhu hadou
altavilla eva hora de Manjari Maya Angelou, I've heard you
say the seven times. And after that say Bismillah Bismillah Bismillah.
This is the meaning of human. This is the meaning of it. Here was the man in pain, severe pain. And I know what migraines are, I mean Alhamdulillah
I used to have them for over 10 years.
Lambda Allah Allah, Allah cured me from that.
This is the meaning of internalizing
the religion that we have Alhamdulillah where we benefit from it.
There is not for us a empty set of words and formulas or or wazifa or something. It's it's something which is real which we benefit from which we use which you ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us.
So do we run to the Koran first? Or do we run to material things?
as myself when you? Do we learn to read the Quran properly, according to its rules? And do we teach our children ourselves?
Do we learn it first? And then teach our children? Or do we hire some poor Imam for a pittance and leave it to him to teach our children while our selves not even know having the knowledge to judge if he is doing the job properly and correctly or not?
If I do not know the role of the jury, how will I correct Anybody else?
This is a very important thing to understand from the zero of resources.
There are two things that the Muslims did not do which we do today and we consider it to be a
good thing and a virtue, but also as an asylum and the Sahaba never Did either of these things. One is
Rasul Allah never taught little children. He didn't run a crash. I didn't run a primary school or
did a mother's day he did not have a bunch of little kids sitting there and teaching them rasulillah Salam drod the parents
he dealt with adults.
And then those adults went home and they taught their children.
And the second thing that they did not have in Madeira
during the diagnosis,
and also the drivers of all of it that they bought they did not have was an orphanage
I might say, Oh, you know, that's a bad thing you should abandon over No.
The reason that did not have an orphanage is because the right thing to do is to bring the orphan into your home
is to take care of the orphan yourself, to grow the orphan in your own race, the orphan with your own children.
the orphan is not just a baby goat or something, he just doesn't need food and shelter, and water.
What the orphan Li what is what makes an orphan an orphan, it is the lack of parents.
One or both the parents are dead,
or gone away or whatever.
So there is this poor child who is alone in the world has no parents. So what does he or she need?
More than anything else? They need parent love and affection. They need safety. They need directions.
food and shelter? Yes, sure. But what but is that? Or is that a pressing need? No, it's not.
When you put them into an orphanage, what are you doing? You're giving them food and shelter.
But in the orphanage, this vacuum
of parents the fact that they do not have parents. This not only doesn't go away, it actually gets emphasized.
Because they're with other children who don't have parents. And none none of them have parents.
With child cries in the night out of fear, there's no adult there to sit and take the child into their arms and comfort the child.
That's why they never had orphanages, orphans were taken care of by people in their families.
I'm not saying that today. We have an offering that's a bad thing. But I'm saying that this is definitely not dishonor.
Neither is it the sooner to hire an Imam and get tell the mom to come and teach your children while you and your wife you're not taught to read you yourself are
in need of instruction. But you know, you think it's beneath your dignity to learn.
And your children are learning from somebody else and Allah knows, you know, how, what is the quality of that teacher? And what is it that they can or are teaching?
Do we take pride
in the course of study our child is doing
in the school or college or university, but feel no shame whatsoever that I that our child cannot read the Quran properly
and cannot lead to regard of Salah properly
and will not be able to lead our own salado janazah when we die.
we reflect on this.
My submission do is
after this lecture is over.
Call all your children and sit them down ask them which one of you I'm talking about the boys not the girls. sit them down and say which one of you
can lead my Salah to Jana they fight die now?
Are you willing to let the Imam of the masjid with a stranger? I want to ask him to lead the celebs agenda.
It's quite a farce. It's like a joke. I remember in India,
the man will ask
Do I have your permission to lead the Salah to janessa for your father.
He has an idea
Hmm. If you don't permit, then your father will be there for the next three days.
Because you don't know what to do.
And your father may may Allah have mercy on him he never taught you.
You never bothered him that you don't know what to do that you know that you did not learn what what you should have learned.
How much our disservice have we done to ourselves and to our Dean
that we converted this Dean into a bunch of rituals.
And then we created this in a religion where there is no organized clergy in a religion where there is no formal
you know, priesthood.
We created a false clergy and priesthood
created a system of education
Where they are taught a completely truncated completely in inadequate course of study, which makes them fit only to do one thing, which is to lead Salah in a Masjid. And to perform Serato janazah.
And to teach from for the most part, to teach around only by NASA, we just by looking, that's it, character recognition, neither the teacher nor the student understand what is going on.
You know, I'm not exaggerating, you know, this is the reality of our education system, so called
in our bodies and what they produce. At the end of it, we call him Malala. And we call it when we die and turban on his head.
Can we say he's an island?
alum of what what islands?
Start therefore fault.
It is a fault of those who are supporting this kind of education system. It is your job that you should have gone and checked and said, What is it you are teaching here? What should you be teaching, and I'm going to help you to do that better. By all means, donate money to mothers, make sure that you are giving them enough. But at the same time, focus on quality. Go and check. The reality is that most daughters don't have a clue of what is being taught in the mother is.
And even if you are given a set of books I want in the abroad to the whole, you know, set of books
and put it in front of you.
More than likely you don't even know you don't even have the language to read those books. You don't know what the book is all about.
Do you want to carry this on? Tell me?
How long do you want to live this life of
jokes? are bad jokes not funny?
Or should we change?
Should we at least equally when even saying equally is an insult to the cloud follows? Well, how can you equate the column of Allah with anything else but at least equally concerned?
your children being able to read the Quran of the Quran? Will Kareem being able to understand it?
And following the religion practicing the religion properly? Should that be at least an equal concern?
With what they are doing academically in school or college or university? Or what is happening to them in terms of their careers? Should this at least be an equal concern? And I told you I mean, even saying it equally is an insult rarely, because how do you equate the caliber of Allah with something else? But let's let that be there. Let us say is, at least is equal.
I'm not saying the Kalam of Allah is what I'm saying. Is your concern equal?
Do we listen to our children reciting the Quran at home?
to our children, listen to us reciting the Quran at home,
or is this not a part of anybody's memory?
My mother, whenever I went to visit her almost every time
after we you know, the greeting and so on and so forth. Then once we sat down,
my mother almost always would say Dr. Khurana
you she will tell you a good read some Cora
sometimes she would ask me she would tell me to read this or that surah sometimes, she would give it to me.
And you will give me a lot of why
do we do this our elders.
When children come do you tell them please recite some Quran Let me listen to them.
Please make these into
the mobarak rituals of your homes.
That children when they come to visit you
must read some must recite some current.
make this into a practice make this into a a Baraka ritual full of Baraka inshallah.
My brothers sisters, it is all in our control. If we create an atmosphere of obedience and atmosphere of the glory of Allah in our homes, then believe me we are the ones who are willing to reap those benefits.
I mentioned it so many times and I'm mentioning it again.
One of my favorite memories about my father, Natalie
That he would wake up for the handle usually around tapas to 230 to three o'clock
and in those days we didn't have hot and cold running water.
So, there would be a big container in the bathroom It smells like a house inside the bathroom, big bottles
reservoir concrete very concrete.
So, he will take water from that into a bucket and these buckets the days before plastics.
So buckets were made of galvanized iron and they had an iron metal iron handle. So he will lift up the bucket a put it on the on the on the floor of the bathroom and he will drop the handle like make a big bang
so we would hear the sound in the you know from the bathroom in the bedroom had been okay so boys up for the head. He will make with oh he would come into the main role he would pray into the Hollywood pray the 100 and then he will sit there and he will recite Quran aloud
not long ago we wouldn't be screaming it would be allowed in a proper proper proper loud voice
and we could hear the sound muted sound but we could clearly hear hearing reciting Quran in the bedroom
and then when the time for father came he would go inside to put on the lights you would pull up our
our covers the bed the the the blanket and he would just Salah hydro Mira no masala hydrometer no
this is an everyday
he passed away
and 2007 malice rantala filled his cover with no malice Marcela gave him
the highest of positions within
an accept his law he was always a ask Allah for Allah give me a board
I'll accept as though
what memories are you giving your children
when your children think of you after you're gone?
What are they willing to remember?
I'm not saying you're doing anything
for them I'm saying What memories are we getting?
Among those memories? Is there a memory of the sound of your voice reciting Quran
or is that memory not there?
Is there a memory that my dear very very very dear friend devil has? Again
Mashallah here in science
he would go to the masjid every day was another father and all the sons also had to go with him so some went with him in the car some others were you know went on their own
but if he did not see them after this another one he would turn around even if he did not see any one of them in the masjid for a lot of other
when he got back home, he would not eat breakfast.
He didn't punish anybody but he would not eat breakfast.
And if they asked you about your activity, he kind of got it going on. Yeah. Why didn't go over well, when Why are you not eating is there you know, Are you not feeling well? No, I'm fine.
Why were you not there and
obviously this didn't happen very often because you know those boys also Mashallah now of course, they're all grown men and they have their own children. May Allah bless them. Very, very dear. Their
family is very close to me.
May Allah bless them Allah protect them and May Allah give their father general for those who are very sad.
Sisters it's up to us as parents how we want to bring up children and what memories we want to leave them with.
There's no magic to this.
children grew up the way we raised them. And if the column of Allah if the Quran Al Karim the sound of the column of Allah subhanaw taala the recitation of the hora al Karim. The discussion about the Quran Al Karim
is not part of their lives Believe me, your children are destitute or children. You're growing up children. You're raising children who are beggars were things I feel sorry for them. That is great, glorious, magnificent
wealth that Allah subhanaw taala gave you You are too stingy to share with them that in a way that I do what kind of parents I
seriously think about this
how many homes are there which are palaces outwardly, but in reality there are ruins where the walls and devils trees and chandeliers and cupboards are witness to Hawaii and the gospel parties, but the yearn to hear the column of Allah subhanaw taala invent
this carpets have been trod upon by wealthy by expensive shoes, or the carpets Have you ever felt before? In sudo, that those carpets? What value is that? What value is that?
Listen, oh people, on the day of judgment, every brick in that wall will complain to Allah,
about what you forced it to witness?
How many homes of our homes how many of our homes are bereft of the sound of the column of Allah?
Our voices reciting the column of Allah are not a part of the memories of our children.
They will remember us for many reasons, some good some bad but never because they used to hear us reciting the caliber of Allah in the dead of the night when the world was sleeping.
How many of us have children who come to us and say,
mommy Umma ami whatever they call you.
Please make dua for me
because I'm in this difficulty
I know your connection with your
please ask him to help me.
how many of us can lift our hands and look up at them and say Oh Allah give me because I've asked you
like give me because
I'm your slave.
You do not reject my
give me because
once again, this is something that I recall what my father
we used to tell him this my brother myself, my sisters
make die, please request to make the offer.
He would say no, we got
my back and forth and he did it.
here so well.
It will be done inshallah.
I'm going to hold on to him I will not leave let him go until he gives
you another dialogue with Allah.
Swallow. My father was a doctor medical doctor. He was not happy with Koran.
Have you looked at his budget? I'm sure there will be many people who would find fault with the statute. He did his best. He learned he decided or however he learned. He tried his best.
to sell his Rob was pleased
with listening to his voice.
in the dead of the night.
The world was sleeping. My father was a week
when the word was keeping, my father was decided.
wow parents raised us.
So that I have to like and say with complete confidence.
As I speak to today, there are five of us.
Make a door for them
every single day of our lives to relax.
This is the option opportunity that you have.

who will wake up in the night
and pray the hard job
and make dua for you in their sagitta
when you are lying in your grave and you can't do anything I raising children like that. Or I raising children who don't know Allah, who do not know the caliber of Allah, who do not worship Allah, who don't know the meaning of sajida who don't know the meaning of
You will get what you pay for. You will get what you work for.
We ask a lot of you bar guide that we ask a lot smarter to give you a great trophy

And not to be in a situation where when you are in your coma. Now you're crying tears of blood that Oh Allah I wish had raised my children differently. In that Allahu la hijo.
to the Wrath of Allah, here the anger of Allah

Whatever you have been doing today,
don't worry about that. Make a step out of doba
