Miracle of the Quran is when you start

00:00:02 --> 00:00:03

with 1 verse,

00:00:03 --> 00:00:05

you won't be able to continue just with

00:00:05 --> 00:00:08

1 verse. It will continue to 2 and

00:00:08 --> 00:00:10

then 3, and then 4, and then more.

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

So you end up reading a whole page

00:00:14 --> 00:00:15

a day. You end up reading more, and

00:00:15 --> 00:00:18

then you start memorizing things. I'm always

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

baffled by how people,

00:00:21 --> 00:00:24

they want their kids at a very young

00:00:24 --> 00:00:27

age to learn every song that there is

00:00:27 --> 00:00:28

in the market.

00:00:28 --> 00:00:31

Whatever song is on Spotify, Dotify,

00:00:32 --> 00:00:35

whatever other Fi there is. Everyone's learned it.

00:00:36 --> 00:00:37

And they learn

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

the moves

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

of the same songs

00:00:41 --> 00:00:42

on which app?

00:00:43 --> 00:00:45

On which app? Don't pretend like you don't

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

know.

00:00:46 --> 00:00:49

TikTok. There it goes. Masha Allah. You see?

00:00:49 --> 00:00:51

We learn the moves. But I tell you

00:00:51 --> 00:00:51

what,

00:00:52 --> 00:00:54

without realizing that I could have spent my

00:00:54 --> 00:00:57

time learning verses of the Quran. When you

00:00:57 --> 00:01:00

have a little kid, the first things that

00:01:00 --> 00:01:02

you put into the sponge.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:04

It is taken in and absorbed

00:01:05 --> 00:01:07

more than anything else. And the life is

00:01:07 --> 00:01:10

being molded at that point. So when your

00:01:10 --> 00:01:13

life is being molded and whatever you're absorbing

00:01:13 --> 00:01:14

happens to

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

be divorced from Allah, and the message or

00:01:17 --> 00:01:19

that Allah has given us. What do you

00:01:19 --> 00:01:21

expect as an outcome?

00:01:21 --> 00:01:22

Rather, we

00:01:23 --> 00:01:24

let the child absorb

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

beautiful

00:01:25 --> 00:01:28

recital of the Quran. Recently, I came across

00:01:29 --> 00:01:31

a lovely reciter by the name of Muhammad

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

Al Fati from Yemen. Have you heard that

00:01:34 --> 00:01:34

name?

00:01:35 --> 00:01:38

No. You can check him out. Young guy.

00:01:38 --> 00:01:38

And

00:01:39 --> 00:01:40

beautiful melodious

00:01:40 --> 00:01:43

recital, I swear I could sit all night

00:01:43 --> 00:01:45

and hear the entire Quran, listen to it,

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

and concentrate.

00:01:47 --> 00:01:49

That's how beautiful the recital is. People ask

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

me, who's your favorite reader? Can you guys

00:01:51 --> 00:01:53

say a few names? Who's your favorite reciter?

00:01:53 --> 00:01:54

Just call out names.

00:01:56 --> 00:01:56

Abdulbasid,

00:01:57 --> 00:01:57

Ma'akili.

00:01:58 --> 00:01:59

Who else?

00:02:00 --> 00:02:01

Mushari. Who else?

00:02:03 --> 00:02:04

Afa who else?

00:02:06 --> 00:02:07

Ana Sala Emadi.

00:02:08 --> 00:02:09

Who else?

00:02:11 --> 00:02:12

Look at all the names.

00:02:12 --> 00:02:13

Beautiful, right?

00:02:14 --> 00:02:17

I have a different favorite reciter in different

00:02:17 --> 00:02:18

moods.

00:02:19 --> 00:02:20

How's that one?

00:02:20 --> 00:02:22

I promise you, and I'm not cheating, by

00:02:22 --> 00:02:23

the way.

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

Sometimes you listen to so many Haytham Addakheen,

00:02:26 --> 00:02:29

for example, Hazza al Blushi, for example. This

00:02:29 --> 00:02:31

guy, Muhammad Al Fakih, I'm talking about a

00:02:31 --> 00:02:33

guy known as Ra'ad al Kordi, a guy

00:02:33 --> 00:02:35

known So many recitals one after the other.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:38

There are tons and tons of them available.

00:02:38 --> 00:02:40

And wallahi, I tell you depending on your

00:02:40 --> 00:02:43

mood each one will help you by the

00:02:43 --> 00:02:45

will of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala to calm

00:02:45 --> 00:02:48

down, to soothe, to fulfill that

00:02:48 --> 00:02:51

within you that needs fulfilling because you are

00:02:51 --> 00:02:53

connected with the Quran Just by listening. Imagine

00:02:53 --> 00:02:55

if you are reading. Imagine if you try

00:02:55 --> 00:02:57

to read with a melodious tone. I once

00:02:57 --> 00:02:58

told some people,

00:02:59 --> 00:03:01

a a gathering, that you must make an

00:03:01 --> 00:03:02

effort to read with a melody.

00:03:03 --> 00:03:05

So one of the ladies messaged me later

00:03:05 --> 00:03:08

and told me, it's so difficult to read

00:03:08 --> 00:03:09

with a melody. I said, you have to.

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

You must. It's only you. It's only you

00:03:11 --> 00:03:13

in your room. But instead of looking at

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

the Quran and saying,

00:03:21 --> 00:03:23

It's not wrong to do that, but Allah

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

wants you to beautify it.

00:03:33 --> 00:03:34

See the difference?

00:03:35 --> 00:03:36

Amazing.

00:03:36 --> 00:03:38

And the sister tells me about 2 weeks

00:03:38 --> 00:03:41

later that I can't believe the contentment I

00:03:41 --> 00:03:45

feel. I'm happy. I'm so happy. I was

00:03:45 --> 00:03:47

sad and depressed. I look forward to reading

00:03:47 --> 00:03:49

the word of Allah and telling Allah, oh

00:03:49 --> 00:03:52

Allah, for you I'm doing this. Listen.

00:03:52 --> 00:03:54

Listen to this, subhanallah.

00:03:55 --> 00:03:56

May Allah Almighty grant us ease.
