Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim in the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. Indeed the greatest word in existence is the word of Allah. There is nothing more powerful than the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Quran in NAC known as Zanna, Vicara in Allahu Allah have you alone, indeed, we have revealed this Quran, this reminder, and we will protect it. That's what Allah says. So Allah will protect this book from change, He will protect it from all sorts of negativity from harm from those who intend to desecrate it, et cetera. Allah will protect this book in every way. So when Allah says I will protect this book, any human
being who has made an effort to protect the book will be looked after by Allah as a person who is looking after the book. So if you've memorized the Quran and put it in your heart, you will be a half and a half it means a person who has memorized the Quran but haffi Allah means to protect, okay? Initially high fever means to protect to look after. So you have protected or looked after the Quran as a result, Allah will protect you because he has to protect you, the Quran is inside of you, subhanAllah it's in your heart and your mind, may Allah grant us an understanding. So I want to call on one and all to make a little effort to try to memorize this Quran. Even if it means chapter by
chapter, verse by verse, page by page, whatever it may be. Let's listen to the recital repeatedly, so that we can actually memorize the verses, the Quran is so beautiful, you listen to it a few times, and you've already memorized even little children, instead of getting them used to all the songs on earth that might be immoral, and, you know, void of values and morals. We'd rather replace that from a very early age with melodious recitation of the Quran, you don't know how long the child is going to live, and you don't know how long you're going to live. So we'd rather pack away good rewards for ourselves and for our children, by teaching them the right thing steering and guiding
them towards the right thing from a very early age. This is the word of Allah. So when your child is young, and as the child is growing, instead of playing, like I just said, now that the songs and the musical items that perhaps are of low morals and values, which the children pick up, and they begin to sing from a very early age, in fact, even the movements of their bodies, they learn them from a very young age, wouldn't it be befitting for the word of Allah, that we started with something like the word of Allah in a way that their whole life will be steered in the right direction. So consider what I've just said. It's very important. It's a very strong point, if you can make it a habit to
replace all that that which is not in the pleasure of Allah with the Quran, the Quran ik recital, something good, maybe a good speech, a good lecture, trust me, your children from a very early age of even below the age of one, you know, even below one, they will start picking up some of these words and at a time, they will pick up the verses and the sutras and they will memorize pages and pages, I did it when I was little, and SubhanAllah. Here we are telling the same thing to us. Reminding us in my age group, for example, those who have children, those who have responsibilities, let's do the right thing. The importance of the Quran, this is the month of the Quran Shahara
Z laffy Hilco,
the month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed, mashallah, mashallah, my brothers and sisters, these are a few words I thought I'd share with you during this month of Ramadan regarding the importance of the memorization of the Quran and how to be able to achieve it.
I just mentioned one point about memorizing Allah will protect you, as a result of you having made an effort to protect his word Subhanallah isn't that enough? And then on the day of judgment, you're called out, you know, where are the people of the Quran, Allah, Allah who has such a who the, the VIPs of Allah, the special guests of ALLAH SubhanA, Allah to Allah on that day, you looked after the Quran, you read it, you recited it. melodiously you corrected the recitation, you looked into the meanings, you learn the meanings, you understood you meaning you made an effort to understand you put into practice as best as you could. And guess what you taught it to others. And when you teach
others, it's a sadaqa jariya. So I taught someone who told someone who told someone who taught someone, every single person in the whole line, including the one who taught me and the one who taught that person and the one who taught the one who taught me would all get a full, complete reward. It is so tremendous. It's difficult to even perceive. But Allah knows he says, I'll keep it for you. And you watch you
will never regret it. So in the same way you teach someone bad and they continue teaching others bad and bad because you were a source of it, you get a sin for all of their sins. When you do good, it's the opposite hamdulillah May Allah protect us all and grant us from that goodness, may Allah open our doors, my brothers and sisters, similarly the Quran, Al Al Quran Hoja to laka Allah for unwelcome and bear witness for you or against you. When you read it beautifully and you have a good relationship with it, it will bear witness for you. When you have a terrible relationship with the Quran.
It will bear witness against you. So my brothers and sisters, we need to change that. We need to make sure that we have utilize the short lifespan that we have to do the right things. It's enough. Enough of the bad enough of evil quit it leave it may Allah grant us a sense of responsibility. My brothers and sisters
It really pains us to see what's going on across the globe. But what we do know is let's seize this opportunity to get closer to Allah you'll never regret that. You can never regret abandoning the bad and adopting the good. Allah make it easy for all of us. Apolo Kohli ha That was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
