00:00:01--> 00:00:04

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:05--> 00:00:20

Bismillah Rama Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu wa salam O Allah, Gambia even more serene. Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira kathira. From abajo.

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

My dear brothers and sisters

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

Alhamdulillah

00:00:27--> 00:00:36

First of all, let me congratulate you for making heads of the Coronel Karim.

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

And let me make dua for you

00:00:44--> 00:00:48

that the Quran Al Karim becomes your harvest.

00:00:50--> 00:01:27

Because the issue of Hibbs is twofold. One is you become the hafeez of the Koran, when you memorize it, meaning that you have preserved this Quran. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who caused the Quran to be preserved in your heart. And therefore, you have become the habit of the foreign, but what you must keep in mind and what we must all keep in mind is that the real hence the real half is, is Allah Subhana Allah Himself.

00:01:28--> 00:01:46

And therefore, when a person does heads of the Koran, that person is really preserving himself and protecting himself because the person is bringing himself or herself into the heads and a man of Allah Subhana hutan

00:01:47--> 00:02:10

and the heads of and a man of Allah subhanho Medina, is, means what it means two things, it means protection from everything, which leads to the disobedience and anger of Allah in this life and protection from the via from Johanna in the era

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

that is the real father.

00:02:15--> 00:03:08

The real, the real man is not protection from worldly things, it is not protection from disease, it is not protection from accidents, it is not prediction from financial problems, it is not protection from any of these things alone, we ask Allah Subhana Allah is protection from all of these things also. But that is not the protection we are talking about the real protection is protection from the anger of Allah which means protection from sin protection from anything which displeases Allah Subhana Allah, this is the real protection and the result of that inshallah protection from the Hellfire protection from jahannam. When we meet Allah subhanaw taala on the day of June, so, this is

00:03:08--> 00:03:18

the, this is what you have got insha Allah We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you that you have taken the means towards that which is the ends of the Quran.

00:03:19--> 00:03:23

Now, I want you to think about you of course know the,

00:03:25--> 00:04:22

the rewards of memorizing Quran Al Karim, and just to mention two of them. One of them is that Allah subhanho wa Taala in sha Allah will call you by name on the day of judgment and will tell you to recite the Quran, as much of the Quran as you know and then for each letter of the Quran that you reside in Sharla your data will be increased. And the final letter of the Quran that you decide that will be the GA which will be given to you in Jannah insha Allah now the which also means there is a very big importance in reviewing and repeating and doing those of the Quran don't have your hips so that you do not forget what you have memorized the Quran as Rasul Allah said, is like a camel. If

00:04:22--> 00:04:36

you don't try it, it will go away. So therefore it is very important to try the camel which means to ensure that you are doing your though you are doing your reputation of the hips on a daily basis. The second

00:04:38--> 00:04:41

reward from Allah subhanaw taala

00:04:42--> 00:04:56

for you on the day of judgment will be insha Allah that Allah subhanho wa Taala will give the half is the permission to make Shabbat to make intercession to speak for

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

a number of people in general

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

Maybe 70 people that you will be given the Shabbat to ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive them and to enter them into Jannah and therefore this is a great responsibility and reward that inshallah Allah will give you. And of course on that day, you will inshallah make Shabbat for your parents and for your, your brothers and sisters, your siblings, for your, for your teachers and so on. And somewhere, I request you one of those people in that 70 I request you also to make Shabbat as for me that Allah subhanaw taala should forgive me and enter me into Geneva because today I spent some time went and spoke to inshallah, right? Ask Allah subhanaw taala to remind you to do this inshallah,

00:05:49--> 00:06:23

when you meet him on the Day of Judgment, my brothers and sisters, I want you to think about the Quran in the following terms, think about this, unless you have a handle della, what did he call this kita? Allah How did I call this guitar? orderliness? Allah? I said this is a key type of guidance for all of mankind. Right? Totally not for everybody. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala, also called this keytab Hoda Lille with the cane.

00:06:24--> 00:06:35

Right, that he will get tabula rasa Murphy, who de Lille with a cane. So he died for the mustafina taco. And then Allah Subhana Allah,

00:06:37--> 00:06:41

He called and he taught us when Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:06:43--> 00:06:56

mentioned the Quran for us, Allah subhanho wa Taala in the in sort of Avada right in the beginning, Allah subhanho wa Taala call, told us how to ask for

00:06:57--> 00:07:11

the what to do with Allah Subhana Allah said to us in a certain Misaki surah three, three places or three points at which Allah subhanaw taala told us to,

00:07:14--> 00:07:52

to seek guidance. So one is of course, the leanness. So, this is general guidance for everyone. And then the second one is Turkey, which is guidance for the people of taqwa and then there is a individual opportunity and individually that an instruction for us to see guidance for ourselves on a daily basis, where we say is there a certain boost Okay. Now, the point to ask yourself is this, if you look at the general guidance, and this is the diet and this is when you say orderliness Of course, the column of Allah subhanaw taala is

00:07:53--> 00:08:16

his guidance for all people towards the towards Allah subhanaw taala. But General hida itself, which is guidance, there is a, there is general guidance that I'm not sure altana has sent into the world, which is for everybody, this is general guidance for all people, it is general guidance for all, you know,

00:08:17--> 00:08:44

as human beings, it is general guidance for even animals, and so on and so forth. This is a guidance that comes with what we call in English, we call it instinct. So this is the instinct that happens, where, for example, a newborn baby, whether it's a human baby, or it's a animal, baby, goes directly to the

00:08:45--> 00:09:32

to, to, to date to drink milk from the mother, now who tells the baby how to wait, where to go, what to find. Similarly, you can see general guidance all over for example, I have in my house, outside my window, I have bird feeders, so I put, you know, I put bird seeds in those feeders. And so I was getting different kinds of seed eating birds. And then I put what is called sweat balls. So you get these round balls made of fat and it has peanuts and various things in it. Which woodpeckers like to eat. So I put a feeder with sweet balls in it. Now, two days later, we had woodpeckers there. Now who tells the woodpecker that there is this food which is for woodpeckers which is now in this

00:09:32--> 00:09:59

garden, though, I mean, obviously, I have no way means of, you know, calling out woodpeckers but they come so Allah subhanaw taala sends animals to where their food is Allah guides so the general guidance which is there for everyone. Now, as you as I mentioned, you are much better than I said about the Kitab itself or about Al Quran Allah said Daddy will Geeta Bula vaporfi taki Allah said this is the keytab this is that is the book in which there is no doubt and

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

There is guidance for the moutoku Now you might say that if I'm already a Motoki it means that I am guidance because I have Lai La La Jolla, I have the Gulliver with me and I believe in the caliber, I am I am somebody who believes in Islam, I am somebody who

00:10:20--> 00:10:48

whoa already am a believer Therefore, I am guided, what is this additional guidance that I have? What is the guidance at the moment give me now, this is we know about the three kinds of guidance there are what am I tell us that there are three kinds of guidance, there is this general guidance which is the the hedaya jamea which is the total guidance for everybody. Then there is the hidayatullah shot. Now that

00:10:49--> 00:11:29

is the first level of guidance for the believers for the people who read the Quran and who tried to understand the Quran and you will see in this inshallah I hope you will do this for yourself, which is that the more you read the Quran, the more you attempt to understand the Quran, for example, you have memorized the Quran, if you start now looking at the meaning of what you have memorized, and you say, Well, I have memorized this in Arabic, what does it really mean? If you know Arabic or hamdulillah? If you don't know Arabic, then what does it mean in English and or the whatever language you know, if you focus on the meaning of what you're memorized, you will find that the same

00:11:29--> 00:11:50

idea now have much more magnificence for you, they have much more weight for you, these I now have much more meaning for you. I call this the meaning of meaning. Because if you look at the words, there is one word which has a meaning when we say meaning, basically what we are saying is translation.

00:11:51--> 00:11:56

Translation. But if you look at the

00:11:57--> 00:12:44

the other aspect of meaning, it means what does it mean to you? Now when you say what does it mean to you? You're not talking about translation, you're saying that in your life? What effect does that thing have? Right? For example, if I tell you in in Arabic, the word ohm, what does it mean? You will say it means mother. Right? If I in order vysya Amma wilda What does it mean? You say it means mother. So now mother is the translation mean mother now but if I if I tell you the word mother, if I say Mother, what is the picture in your mind, then you are not seeing in your mind mot AGR, you're not seeing a word, you're not seeing text, you are seeing the face of your mother.

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

You'll

00:12:51--> 00:13:18

see if I say the word mother, and ask you what is the picture in your mind, you're not seeing the text translation in your mind, obviously, you're seeing the face of your mother. Now, this is what I call the meaning of meaning. It is the wasn't it is the value it is the context of that. So now when we say when you read the Quran, for example, if you read

00:13:19--> 00:14:03

take any either the foreign, if you read that foreign, if you read that ayat, then what is the effect of that on you. So this is something that you have to think about when I say meaning of meaning. For example, take the last IR of surah, Al Hassan, right, Walla Walla Walla Walla Walla Walla Walla wa Shahada from there to the end. Now if you see these two if they are the IR of the glory and magnificence of Allah subhanho wa Taala they talk about the the greatness of Allah subhana wa tada obvious power of His mercy, they talk about the know the fact that Allah subhanaw taala has knowledge of the of whatever is hidden for us, but is not even far less valuable than and so on.

00:14:03--> 00:14:51

Similarly, if you take either goods in either Kuzey is obviously one of the most frequently resided Ayat of the Quran, and it is part of our asgar we read desire after every for Salah, we know the Hadees what is our Salah, who said that the one who resides either goosy after the word Salah nothing is nothing separates him or nothing comes between him and Jana except is that meaning that as soon as that person dies inshallah Allah subhanaw taala will give him Jana so this is one of the things to do, after every for Salah reside either kursi so now this is a very common design. We all know this. Now, if you think if I asked you this question and say what happens to you and listen

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

carefully, I'm not asking you for the translation or either I'm asking you what happens to you when you recite either kursi

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

In your heart, what happens to you in your heart when you reside? ayatul kursi What is the answer? Right there should be some answer. Now why should there be some answer ebuyer asked me, What is the value for this? Why should anything happen to me? I have never either I can recite it well, and if you want to see the user of Tajweed, I am reciting my either Gucci correctly according to those who have TouchWiz I'm not making any mistakes in the Macari or any mistakes in any of the other resorts. And so therefore, what is the extra thing that should happen? What is the deli Why should anything happen? The deli if I if I can tell you is again in the Quran itself. Allah.

00:15:43--> 00:15:49

Allah Allah Allah said in our movement Ananda Vina is Luca Allahu wa Jalla.

00:15:50--> 00:16:08

Wa either Juliet Allah him is to Zara to imana Allah Allah behavior taba Cologne, Allah said in Serato and via the second ayat, Allah said that verily and truly, they are the believers only they are the believers who now Allah is giving the

00:16:09--> 00:16:14

description of the believers. Only that is a reliever who's a believer.

00:16:15--> 00:16:32

Look here Allahu Allah wa Jalla coloboma, when the seeker of Allah subhanho wa Taala comes when Allah subhanho wa Taala is mentioned, this person's heart shivers with the glory and magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala What do you learn?

00:16:34--> 00:16:44

Something happens to his heart, something happens to her heart, the heart shivers the heart feels the Presence of Allah subhanho data, the heart knows the Presence of Allah subhanho

00:16:46--> 00:16:50

wa Taala him it Zagato in Idaho

00:16:51--> 00:17:21

when the Ayat of Allah subhanho wa Taala are recited before this person, this person's Eman increases will allow behavior to work alone. And this person has tawakkol has reliance as faith as trust in Allah subhanho that so therefore Allah is giving us a May Allah is giving us a a measurement to judge and see the level of our connection with the Quran.

00:17:22--> 00:18:05

So now we are talking about when I when we say who really knows what it is Hera, what is it that what is the hedaya for the believer, because the believer already believes what is the healer for the water theme because the Matata already has the power. The water is already concerned with Allah Serrano, Dallas pleasure, what is the extra that that he's going to get this to Lucia and that is the he dies from the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala from the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which the person gets as a special benefit and bonus because the person believes every time he or she reads he is getting this extra Hidayat, which keeps on opening the Quran and

00:18:05--> 00:18:31

you will see through your life inshallah, may Allah grant you this, that every time you read the Quran, something new opens in your mind, something new opens in your heart, the Quran goes deeper and deeper into your heart and to give you more and more of a connection with Allah subhanho data. So, therefore, the thing that you should do is when you are reading is to ask yourself stop somewhere, ask yourself, what is the effect of this on my heart?

00:18:32--> 00:18:48

What is it doing to me? Why How is it changing me? I remember an incident I was in one of the modalities within India with which I'm associated in Hyderabad and I was in the data phase of this mother's

00:18:49--> 00:18:55

and the hills are starred he asked me he told me Please listen to one of the boys.

00:18:56--> 00:19:04

So I said okay, one of the boys came and he sat and he started reciting. So he resided,

00:19:05--> 00:19:07

called zero fill out of the one 0k.

00:19:09--> 00:19:13

So I stopped him, I said, What did you understand from this?

00:19:15--> 00:19:36

So he did not understand he was he was not he did not know the meaning he was he only was reciting him just so he said, What? He said I have not understood it. So I said Do you know what it means? He said no. So I explained device Allah subhanaw taala saying say, zero fill out equals zero for the board, traveling the land.

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

Fun zero and look at

00:19:42--> 00:19:57

how we have created the health the hook. So I didn't realize it I understood. Then what happened was that where I was sitting and where I was sitting outside through the window, we could see the courtyard. There was a there was a yard

00:19:59--> 00:19:59

and you

00:20:00--> 00:20:28

In this courtyard, there were some chickens and the chickens were grazing in this courtyard. So, I told him look outside he looked outside I said what do you see that he said I see chickens is a very good I said what are they eating? So, he said they are eating insects and you know maybe some small lizard or something like this some things so I said to him, Yes, you are right. Now tell me the chicken is eating this lizard. I said what happens to you in the desert?

00:20:30--> 00:20:46

night if you take a lizard, the lizard you know the these geckos which are on the on walls, so I said, if you take any one of those what is the Mathematica wiser I will die because it is poisonous. I said, Yes. So don't eat don't eat lizards, even even chocolate desserts, so as you don't eat them.

00:20:49--> 00:21:17

I said, but the chicken is eating the lizard. Now tomorrow, you take the chicken and you got the chicken Bismillah and you cook the chicken your mother cooks the chicken and you have this wonderful chicken farmer, will you die? He said no. I said what will happen to you is no I love it. It's very nice delicious, it will make me strong. So I said the chastened chicken ate the lizard which is poisonous yesterday and today you are eating the chicken but the poison does not come to you. For you the chicken is good.

00:21:19--> 00:21:30

He said yes. I said now Allah said coffee rubella the fun zone Okay. Now what do you understand from desire the wiser ha Shall I never understood it ah That is right. That is the issue.

00:21:32--> 00:22:22

The issue is that we are reading and we are not trying to understand that beyond the translation, when we say meaning, we mean translation and we are and we we end with that no translation is the first step. If you do not even know the translation, how can you understand so you have to know the translation. But that is not where it ends? After the translation comes the real meaning of it, which is what does it mean to me? The first and foremost thing that you should think about is the reading itself. What does it mean to me that Allah subhanho wa Taala chose me to read his column to read his speech, what is column column is speech right? I am speaking to you now you're listening to

00:22:22--> 00:22:25

me. So, if you say what is this is my column

00:22:26--> 00:22:28

and you are sitting there attentively

00:22:29--> 00:22:30

and you are listening to this.

00:22:32--> 00:23:10

Now what is the value of the column of Allah that is what I mean by orderly when when Allah Taki for the month Turkey, this is the desire to live chat that comes to the person because the person is reading and Allah subhanho wa Taala then this ope Allah opens the doors and understanding of this person, as the person reads as the person continues to read Alhamdulillah in this matter, do understand also, that when you are talking about the meaning of the foreign being open to you, it is very important to be guided by the

00:23:11--> 00:23:51

understanding of our great scholars of our classical scholars of our great scholars even of today because the important the one of the dangers of simply saying that I read in the Quran and Allah subhanaw taala is guiding me and Allah is opening the meanings for me is that sometimes shaitaan can take us off into a different direction. And you take an item and you understand this either you think you understand this and shatta and takes you in a direction which is completely false and misguided. And you say well you know this is the meaning of the aisles which opened on me which came on to me No,

00:23:52--> 00:24:40

that is not what I mean by the meeting, I mean the meaning as understood by those whose hearts were clean and your and able to reflect the glory and magnificence of Allah subhanho wa Taala please understand that the column of think of it like this that the column of Allah subhanaw taala is something that is being reflected and what you are seeing of the color what you are understanding of the color is what is reflected in your heart, think of your heart as a mirror. Right. So if you are looking at me just now you are looking at me through the lens of the camera, or you are looking at yourself in a mirror. The clarity of the picture depends on how clean the mirror is.

00:24:41--> 00:24:59

For example, I can have a very, very highly expensive and a very sophisticated and a very complex camera, which can take some very very beautiful and very detailed pictures, but the pic that the lens of the camera is unclear is

00:25:00--> 00:25:40

Roughly there are some you know there are there are stains on this lens. Now if I use the camera the same camera has not changed, but because the lens is dirty, when I take pictures, the pictures are dirty, the pictures will be will be bad you I will not get the clarity the pictures, the pictures will be blurred. They will have spots on them and so on so forth. And you are saying well you know what's wrong with this gallon, nothing is wrong with the camera. What is wrong is the lens is not clean. Now in our life, the Allah Subhana Allah created us and what Allah subhanaw taala gave us Mashallah is his intelligence analyst writer gave us understanding Allah, Allah gave us the ability

00:25:40--> 00:26:19

and time to reflect and learn and so on. And what is being beamed into our heart which is the caliber of Allah is the purest, the most beautiful, the most truthful of all speeches because as soon as in as kala, dizzy kita Allah, he said, verily, the most truthful of speech is the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when this book of Allah, Allah is being beamed into my heart, how is it possible that I can be misguided? You might ask me this question and say that how is it possible I am getting something which is so pure, which is so?

00:26:20--> 00:27:08

Which is the purest, which is the most correct? How is it possible that I can I can misguided, you can be misguided, I can be misguided if the receptor is is dirty, if my mirror is unclean, that no matter how beautiful the picture, the picture itself is beautiful. But what I'm seeing in the mirror is the reflection of the picture, it is not the picture itself, I'm seeing the reflection of the picture and the reflection becomes dirty becomes contaminated, becomes corrupted, because not because anything wrong with a picture, but because my receptor my screen, my my mirror is dirty. And that is why the importance of the test gear of the heart does get to curl does get to enough's. This

00:27:08--> 00:27:55

is an extremely important thing. And it begins with feeling the glory and magnificence, feeling the power feeling the importance, feeling, how critical is this Coronel Kareem just to sit there? And my question to you I always think about is when I tell people that when you pick up the Quran to read, underline shala you should read every single day all of us must read the Quran every day. But when you pick up the Quran to read, before you start reading, just ask yourself this question. What is this book in my heart? What is this column? What are these words, which I'm holding in my heart in my hand, right think about is what is this guitar in my hand? What is this book in my hand? Ask

00:27:55--> 00:28:39

yourself this question answer the question What is this book? This book is the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Please understand, the Quran came as the spoken word. The first encounter of with the Quran, the first encounter with the Kalam of Allah was not an encounter of the eyes. It was an encounter of the years. It was the it was not read. It was heard. Allah subhanho wa Taala sent the Kalam Allah spoke the collaborative gibberella Salah heard the collab, Allah caused it to be memorized by him. He came and he recited the column he did not show me a

00:28:41--> 00:29:26

piece of paper with something written on it. he recited the column of Allah and Jubilee Salam recited the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala to Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Rasulullah is on a solemn heard the color and then the Sooners on a cell and memorize it. And Rasul. Allah recited the color to the Sahaba rizwana era image by and the Sahaba memorize the color, and then only some of them used to regard it and they used to write it down to the writing of the column. And somebody who may have them read the column was reading it only later, the actual column of Allah subhanaw taala game as the spoken word. So when you are holding this in your hand when

00:29:26--> 00:29:45

you're holding the guitar of Allah, I request you to remind yourself and say, first and foremost before you start reading, what is this in my hand what am I holding? And then tell yourself that this is the speech of Allah. This is what Allah subhanaw taala della della who chose to speak and tell us

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

and this is the speech which came through generally Sarah, so this is also the voice, the column of Allah, the words of Allah subhanaw taala came to rasulillah salam in the voice of

00:30:00--> 00:30:48

Whatever the means was that Jubilee Salam conveyed this column to Rasul Allah says Allah. And we heard the gram of Allah subhanho wa Taala human beings for the first time, in the voice of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa he was I was alone. So this is the magnificence of this. This is what I'm holding in my hand is not the, it is not the words of any Shire is not the word or any Island. It is not the words of your father or mother. It is not the word of your teacher, it is the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the very, very important thing for us to keep in mind and to remind ourselves and to focus on that. And then when we read the keytab then we say, what is it

00:30:48--> 00:30:55

that Allah subhanaw taala is telling us and when we see that we said, This is what Allah Serrano Dharma is telling me For example,

00:30:57--> 00:31:34

okay, me salada Lee Vickery. Now the World War who said this, Allah subhanho wa Jalla Jalla wa said this, it is first person address, Allah, Allah is telling us to Allah is ordering us and saying, Aki, me Salah that Lizzie curry Estelle, establish the salah for for my vehicle. Therefore, what must I now do? Immediately there is an action plan. Here is what Allah told me, here is the action plan for that, which means now I must establish Salah, for what for the seeker of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:31:40--> 00:31:42

I want you to think about the Quran

00:31:43--> 00:32:00

as a map, because this is what I mentioned to the ayat where it was rather told us to see guidance. Is there a certain stocky guidance on the path? Sarah was talking the path of steadfastness, I think about the forearm as a map.

00:32:01--> 00:32:36

What do you do with the map? Right? What do you do if you if you take a map and you're you're following that map to a particular destination? What do you do with the map? First and foremost, you need to know how to read a map. By map reading is, it's not a complicated thing. It's, it's fairly simple. And if it's a well drawn map, then it becomes even simpler. But definitely, it's not something which is, you know, just discovered automatically, you have to learn. So you have learned how to read. So that's the first part, which is how to read a map, if you don't read the map correctly, obviously, you will not be guided.

00:32:37--> 00:33:25

Having done that, then what happens? What happens then is first and foremost, you read the map, and then you continuously conserve this map as you go forward in your journey. Right, the map is not a one time thing that you have read once and that's it. Us you go from memory, no, you continuously consult the map as you go forward. Second thing is, which happens when you reading a map is you mark yourself on the map in terms of the landmarks in terms of the milestones. So if I'm going from where I am now in West Springfield, and if I have to go to Boston, Logan International Airport, and I'm following the right map,

00:33:26--> 00:33:30

then First of all, what do I need? Do I know how to read the map? Yes, and I'm following the map.

00:33:31--> 00:33:37

And then, as I'm going forward, I find that the first

00:33:38--> 00:33:41

town that I come to, is Hartford.

00:33:43--> 00:34:17

Whereas the map says that the first town that I should be coming to is, is lower, or it is Wooster. So what do I tell myself, I tell myself that look, this looks like I'm going in the opposite direction, I'm going towards Connecticut, I'm going towards New York, instead of going towards Boston, because if I was on the on the west bike, and if I was going towards Boston, then I should not come to Hartford right if I were going to add what it means something is wrong in the in the direction in which I'm doing. Now this is the this is what we need to do as far as the Quran is concerned which is

00:34:18--> 00:34:58

to continuously focus on to consulted continuously and to focus on what the Quran is showing us. So if I'm reading the Quran, for example, if I'm now reading the Torah, I'm studying to be an Arab, I am studying or more and more not necessarily to be an alum as in graduating from a mother. But for example, if you are going to a Korean Holocaust for example, right or if you are going to your you are attending some classes of this shareholder ship, and you find that yes, I have understanding I am the start a pupil of the shareholders yet loves you very much. But in my interaction with others, I am now finding that I am

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

Becoming arrogant. I'm becoming domineering, I am becoming somebody who

00:35:09--> 00:35:33

is apparently looking down on others, right. And the thoughts in my mind, for example are you know, I mean, I pray five times a day in the masjid. But look at this guy, he lives close to the masjid. But I hardly ever see with a budget, I just see maybe maybe one time or something, you know, what kind of person is this? And what kind of Muslim is this, if that thought is coming in your mind, then you are

00:35:34--> 00:36:13

sure you're, you're looking at the map, but you're going in the opposite direction, the purpose of the map is to lead you to your correct destination. Right, the map is not there for you to it's not a piece of art for you to look at and admire. It's there for you to use it to guide yourself to the right destination. Now in the example I gave you, that you are studying Islam, you are getting knowledge of Islam, you think you have any knowledge of Islam, but you are looking at somebody who say, Oh, I pray five times a day in the masjid, this person lives next to the budget, this close to the budget, and hardly ever comes this person come maybe just one just just one time. You know, this

00:36:13--> 00:36:52

is so therefore, in some way I am superior to this person, then Believe me my brothers and sisters, your that map is not leading you to the right direction that you are Miss reading that map. Right that map is written leading you to a very bad place, which is the place where people who are arrogant people who have a cardboard, that is where they'll end up a neuron you and I don't want to go there, because what should you be doing now evaluate the situation is that that here this person who lives next to the mother but does not come to the masjid and you come to the masjid? What really should you be saying? In this situation? You know what you should be saying? You should be saying to

00:36:52--> 00:37:20

yourself not to that person. You should be saying to yourself that how weak I am. How useless Am I that I am here. And I pray five times in the masjid. And this person also lives He's my neighbor, obviously because you're praying five times this person next to the mother module. This person is a neighbor of ours. He is a neighbor of Allah subhanaw taala house, he is my neighbor. And this person does not even come to the masjid one time a day or maybe he comes only whatever how useless am I?

00:37:21--> 00:37:29

It is my responsibility. How is it that while I am still alive, this person is not even coming to the masjid.

00:37:30--> 00:37:31

Now think about that.

00:37:33--> 00:37:50

This is why the foreign key the Koran al Karim did not come for us simply to memorize it. And to recite it beautifully. As long as all of this is part of how you recite the Quran, you must decide to go to flee because there is no other way to decide the correct way to set the forum is to decide immutably according to the rules of recitation.

00:37:51--> 00:38:07

But if it ends that, if that is all I'm doing. That is the point I'm making. I'm not saying please don't want that we are not not going to be stupid if I said that. That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying when you learn that hamdulillah don't think that your job is over? Don't think that that is it? No.

00:38:08--> 00:38:18

Your job is not your job. And my job is then to take it to its logical conclusion, which is that I have this map. This map is leading me to

00:38:19--> 00:38:38

that right destination, this map must also lead everyone else to the right destination. And I as the person who is holding this map in my hand, it is my additional responsibility to hold those people by the hand and guide and lead them to the right destination.

00:38:39--> 00:38:50

This is the meaning of the work of the Vla musella the work of Dr. Islam is what the work of Dr. Islam is to ensure that not a single person enters Jannah not one single person and

00:38:52--> 00:39:08

this is our job, our job is to ensure this now Allah subhanaw taala in his infinite mercy did not hold us accountable for the Allah did not say that unless a person unless at least one person accepts you stuff you cannot get janela did not say that. Allah subhanaw taala left it

00:39:09--> 00:39:17

to for us Allah. Allah kept it to the X to the to the extent of Did you communicate? Did you convey the message to the donor?

00:39:19--> 00:39:23

Well, Alena, Ella Bella whole movie, Allah said it for you

00:39:24--> 00:39:28

the thing more than conveying the message clearly.

00:39:30--> 00:40:00

But when we say conveying the message clearly, what does it mean? It means to convey clearly by speech, to convey clearly by action to convey clearly by our examples. So if this map if this Koran if this lesson if this knowledge of Islam is making me arrogant, for example, if he's making me proud, if it is making me feel that I am something special, right? And if for example, if you are telling people follow me, look at me, take me as your exam.

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

But then why Allah then you are sitting in the lap of

00:40:04--> 00:40:06

you are sitting in the lap of English

00:40:10--> 00:40:17

we should read to which example follow follow Muhammad was revised raggio not me.

00:40:19--> 00:40:20

This is the meaning of guides.

00:40:22--> 00:40:45

More later ninja inshallah we will talk about this but for now just take orders reflect on this, that this is the Corolla that I have. I'm reading it, I'm trying to understand it. This is the map I have. I must follow the map myself and I must try to lead others also to the right destination using this map. Asana will carry while he was a bit banged around with the gun and what was going on.
