shahada Wahab and Sheikh Abdullah Wahid and the rest of the brothers. I've worked with them previously. This is actually the first time we've met in person even though I've traveled to America many times, Detroit and Michigan and Chicago but this is the first time we've met even though we've spoken a lot, and I've done a quite a few programs for them online hamdulillah it's a great honor and always a privilege to be working with them and being able to teach online courses etc. Today's topic of the topic of today's session, which is related to the book of Allah subhanaw taala, which

00:02:45 --> 00:03:33

gathers all of us unites all of us anchored by the Quran. And the Quran is something that unites all the Muslims regardless of whichever methodology or background or ethnicity or understanding we have. The Quran is something that unites everybody and this is why Allah said in the Quran, why Arthur C mu, B Hubballi, lurgi Jermy our data for Rocco hold on all of you collectively to the robe of a rope of Allah subhanaw taala and this hablo Allah, the commentators have explained, it refers to the book of Allah subhanaw taala, the Quran. Now this Quran that Allah has given to us and I'm just going to talk very briefly, three basic rights of the Quran. The Quran has three basic rights over us, every

00:03:33 --> 00:03:39

single one of us male, female, Muslim, you know, all the Muslims, elderly, the young,

00:03:40 --> 00:04:24

three basic rights book of the book of Allah subhanaw taala and the first right of the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And these rights have been, you know, taken from the Quran itself, but the first right is the recitation of the Quran. You know, Allah subhanaw taala in about four or five places in the Quran, he talks about the basic objectives, what we say Ma said, MCSA boo boo the objectives, the basic objectives or the aims and the goals and the purposes the reasons the motives why Allah subhanaw taala sent his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, Why did Allah send the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what was the reason for his descent? Why did Allah appoint a

00:04:24 --> 00:04:42

prophet? And Allah mentions this in about five places in the Quran? One of the places he says, naka de min Allahu Allah, meaning indeed Allah has favored the believers is Bartha fie him Rasul Allah, because he sent amongst them a messenger min unfussy him who was from amongst them.

00:04:43 --> 00:04:46

The number one why yet to do are they him?

00:04:47 --> 00:04:59

he recites he teaches them how to recite the book. He teaches them how to recite the words of Allah subhanaw taala yet through tilava. So one objective one job

00:05:00 --> 00:05:30

Description, one objective of Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi. Salam was Tilawat teaching tilava You have to do I lay him, teaches people how to recite the book. Then he said, get through to him IoT, why is the key him and he purifies them. That's his second job objective, spiritually purifies them, while you are lemon will kitab. And then he teaches them the meanings of the book. First was the way to recite, and then purification, the number three,

00:05:31 --> 00:05:51

he teaches them the meanings of the book, and number four will help them Ah, he teaches them wisdom, four basic objectives of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, leave the two from there, not because they're not important, they're very important, but that's a topic on its own. Two of the objectives mentioned in this verse, what were the four again?

00:05:52 --> 00:06:02

Let's see, if you're awake. What was the four again? Number one resource recitation teaches them how to recite number two, spiritually purifies them, number three,

00:06:04 --> 00:06:07

teaching them the meaning of the of the book and number four,

00:06:08 --> 00:07:04

teaches them Hankamer wisdom, let's leave the Hikmah wisdom and that's a topic on its own. And the spiritual purification teaches them the book is one separate objective. And the meanings of the book is us separate, distinct objective of the messenger SallAllahu sallam. What does that tell us? That number one objective is, was of the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam was that he came into this world. Allah subhanaw taala sent him He taught his companions the Sahaba Radi Allahu anhu, whom one who knows the male and female companions. He taught them how to recite recite Thilawa. How to recite the book. This tells us that recitation of the book of Allah in itself is an objective for every

00:07:04 --> 00:07:19

believer, regardless of whether we understand the meaning or not understanding the meaning is the second objective that I'm coming to do our in itself is an objective. Even if someone does not understand

00:07:20 --> 00:08:01

the words of Allah. This is Gullah Mala. Remember, you know we hear the Quran always think for a moment rather than sisters. This is Kalaam Allah you know what that means? It's an attribute of Allah. This is one of the manifestations. One of the things we can see direct of Allah. We can't see Allah in this life. Now to the record absorb oh you recall I'm sorry, we can't see Allah in the Accra inshallah we we shall see Allah and Jana, but in in this life, we see manifestations of Allah's creation and His bounties and his gifts, but something really closely attached to Allah. You know, this is a discussion that these are not the words of the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam

00:08:01 --> 00:08:09

himself These are words of Allah just imagine gala Mala hat, yes smile Kalam Allah.

00:08:10 --> 00:09:10

Imagine Words of Allah, these are no you know, nothing ordinary, this is. This is extra, extra super, super extra ordinary. So Thilawa reciting the Quran in itself is an act of worship. It's an act of a bada, and therefore, every Muslim should make it a part of his or her life. Our teachers tell us that no Muslims day should begin. Before doing anything in the world. You cannot start your day without reciting the book of Allah. A Muslim can't live a life where their day does not commence begin initiate start without the recitation of the book of Allah He know Quran Al Fajr Deacon Amercia Huda Quran and the morning time is attended by angels, but you can read it any time. But

00:09:10 --> 00:09:48

it's really good to recite it in the morning. But the point is daily recitation, whether you recite 10 pages, five pages, even if it's a one page recitation of the book of Allah Words of Allah Tila, in itself is an act of Ibadah even if someone doesn't understand the meaning, you know, some people say this that look you know, what's the point in reciting if you don't get the meaning? That's a separate objective brother, sister. Even if you don't understand you still, it's an a bada. Quran is not like any you know, any other book. If there's any other book number one, if you don't understand you will never read it. And you will know Chinese here.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:50

Am I with somebody?

00:09:51 --> 00:09:59

Nobody. Nobody knows Chinese. Yeah. Ching. Cha Ching. No, Leto. No. Nobody knows. It's a good language. Okay.

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

Imagine picking up a book in Chinese you know how to read, but you don't you don't have a clue what it says. Will you read it?

00:10:09 --> 00:10:31

Will you ever read it now? Even if you understand the meaning Harry Potter book, Roald Dahl book was his the author Abdullah Roald Dahl, who else is an author, you read it three times, four times. You say sometimes to me, I've read this book, I've read it twice. I don't want to read it again. The morning once you read it, colors.

00:10:32 --> 00:11:16

Quran even asked the scholars and the students of knowledge, even if you've read it 2 billion times, every time you read it, or you listen to it, it just regardless how many times you've read it, and you know the meanings still, each time. It just gives you the special spiritual lift, and it's amazing. And you don't have to have a super amazing voice for it as well. You know, those people who are attached to the words of Allah, they don't need I mean, of course, good voice it helps but it's not necessary requirement for them to feel uplifted by the words of Allah in itself. Even if you don't understand the meaning. There is reward you know, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:11:16 --> 00:11:17

what did he say?

00:11:19 --> 00:11:29

He said, each word you recite each word you shall get 10 rewards. And then he said,

00:11:30 --> 00:11:32

when you recite a leave

00:11:33 --> 00:11:36

me, you gain how many rewards?

00:11:38 --> 00:12:07

Is that? 30 I don't I don't say he says the messenger. sallallahu alayhi salam he says I don't say you get 10 rewards for Alif Lam Meem rather? I leave on her phone while I'm on her phone or meme on her phone. What did you say? I leave on her phone while I'm on her phone while me him on her phone. And if is a letter 10 rewards LOM is a letter 10 rewards meme is a letter 10 reward just by saying leave

00:12:09 --> 00:12:49

me 30 rewards. And you know the significant point here. I haven't read this in any book. But this came to my mind Allahu Allah, if it's good, if it's good from Allah. If it's not good, then it's from me, and then just disregard it. But imagine, took the example used by the messenger SallAllahu sallam. He could have said any other word from the Quran. Like for example, that equal Kitab who after Islam is what vertical Kitab right? He would have he could have said I don't say that. Lika is one word rather than is one letter and lamb. The example used was Alif Lam Meem olive lamb has no meaning.

00:12:51 --> 00:13:20

Raluca has a meaning all these letters harmie Ya see, sawed off these are letters Allah who are either movie Murata, Hebei Dalek, only Allah knows the meaning there is no meaning. So the example he used to say that you will get reward is off a word of the Quran that has no meaning that we know Allah knows the meaning. This tells us that without any meaning you get rewarded, reciting the book of Allah

00:13:21 --> 00:13:24

just imagine he could have used you could have said okay, when

00:13:26 --> 00:13:50

you receive you know 50 reward? No, he said Alif Lam Meem No, no meaning understood. Therefore brothers and sisters don't let anyone ever say to you that what's the point is just you know, puppet fashion parrot fashion just, you know, just reading small children and memorizing the Quran they don't know any meaning. What's the point? What's the point no, this is a bother in itself. And then part of the still our time is short part of this tilava

00:13:51 --> 00:13:58

also is not only recitation, brothers and sisters is not only recitation rather,

00:13:59 --> 00:14:18

rather what reciting as Allah taught his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and how He taught his Sahaba this is also very, very, very, very important to recite. According to the laws and rules of recitation,

00:14:19 --> 00:14:24

especially for non Arabs, especially for people from the subcontinent sometimes can be difficult.

00:14:25 --> 00:14:38

With what we call what we say what do we say with Tajweed you know what to do it means that you it is from the word Joe whether you Joe we do an Arabic Joe whether you Joe we do Tajweed and bahawa mucho with over mucho word

00:14:39 --> 00:14:59

means reciting beautifully. As as taught by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he taught his companions how to recite. It is honestly really sad if a Muslim lives 6070 years of her or his life. Sometimes when you say her for

00:15:00 --> 00:15:02

Before the hazier, just to be politically correct.

00:15:04 --> 00:15:13

her or his life. 70 years we've been on eBay. We've been been on Amazon, we've been on horses.

00:15:14 --> 00:15:21

Every every website you can think of, but we can't recite the words of Allah with Tajweed. That is sad.

00:15:22 --> 00:15:33

There are 29 letters in the Arabic language. Spend one day perfecting one letter. 29 days you've perfected 29 letters, with the one with alpha with the HA.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:41

Clarity. You know the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam Allah said to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi salam in Surah piano, he said

00:15:42 --> 00:15:59

in Alena Jamar, who were Khurana for either Cara Anna who first wa Khurana O Messenger when we teach you how to recite the book for either Cara Anna who, but bear Quran then follow that way of reading.

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

So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taught by Allah directly through the medium of guidance through the medium of Jabra NPSP upon him, Allah taught him this to our of the Quran, for either Karana who,

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

but dubare Khurana follow that way of recitation, and he taught his Sahaba and, and this is why you know, this OMA this, only Muslims have this science, the science of Tajweed you don't have, I don't think in any other language, when you have a science that tells you that Ha, ha,

00:16:35 --> 00:17:15

ha, ha comes from here and Ha is from here, the and czar. And you know, I mean, in English, like, okay, where does d come from you Americans speak so different to the British and brought bra you know, I don't know, all the accents are different. You know, the French people try to speak English, like they make the are like there's a whole, you know, brothers video coming from and I don't know how they speak, it's everyone has a different accent in Arabic, it's like everybody's supposed to recite in the same way. The aina. And you know how under HIPAA special signs, which tells you your take your tongue to the left and take it to the top corner, and to bring it on the front and Zahra

00:17:15 --> 00:18:00

is here, that an over an hour at ha ha all the certified the signs of the dream no parallel in any any language. So tilava With a touch with tiny short, is the first real important responsibility inshallah everyone make this effort. If you've already got Tajweed Hamdulillah, thank Allah. Number two, tell our we should make this phone resolution these kinds of programs are not there just so that we can just enjoy a bit of company, which is good in itself. But you take something. And one of the things we should take here, make as soon as you come out of this door from now make a resolution every single day, even if it's seven minutes or six minutes and 43 seconds, I will recite the book

00:18:00 --> 00:18:25

of Allah, what ever happens no matter what, every day, six lines, seven lines, three lines, make it one line. But never, ever let a day pass by that you don't recite the book of Allah. The second objective quickly, time is very short is the understanding of the meaning. I'm going to do the shorts now. Because we said in the verse Allah said what teaching of the book.

00:18:26 --> 00:19:02

The second objective was remember teaching the meaning. Now this is an objective. On one hand we have people who only restrict themselves to till our but never ever, ever, ever never think about, especially the non Arabs ever think about understanding what Allah is telling us. I remember once I was traveling from London to somewhere in a train, this non Muslim Christian guy sat next to me and he said to me, one tell me one thing, I don't get you Muslims. You guys have a book called the Quran, like 90% of you Muslims don't have a clue what your God is telling you.

00:19:03 --> 00:19:42

Like, how does that work? We know Bibles in English, we know what God is saying. But 90% They don't have a clue what God is saying. And that's true. Honestly, it's not only the responsibility of the scholars to understand the Quran, it's for everybody. That's why we have translations. And this I don't know where this has come especially in the subcontinent culture, where people don't think we're not supposed to Oh, no, no, we're not supposed to understand the Quran. No understand it, you're Alaimo the meanings but then on the other hand, understanding doesn't mean that we all become more foster of the Quran and wish the hits of the Quran. You know, when the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu

00:19:42 --> 00:19:59

Arabs still the messenger SallAllahu Sallam taught them this meaning has also come from Allah, meaning was given to the messenger Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he transmitted that meaning to the companions, and there is an established way of understanding, not somebody who just looks at dictionary and

00:20:00 --> 00:20:35

takes the meaning out no that you have to follow the traditional system of the meanings and the Tafseer of the Quran. So, take time out and hamdulillah there's a lot of good Quran translations available reliable, just make sure it's reliable translations explanatory notes. One of the great and I will say this probably I'm biased one of my teachers share with DW with money Harvey, the Hola. He has a really amazing book, The Nobel meanings of the Quran, pick that up. It's beautiful two volumes you can get in one thick volume, there's got it has explanatory notes, if you spending six lines every day, read the translation, and a bit of explanatory meanings. And then when you

00:20:35 --> 00:20:54

recite in Salah, imagine when you understand Surah Fatiha, we recite Surah Fatiha so many times a day but we don't have some of us don't know what we have a clue what it means. If you know the meaning, then your Salah is transformed as well. It's like amazing, you'll think it then I'll set autonomous teams

00:20:55 --> 00:20:59

with the meaning think reflect on the verses that are being recited.

00:21:00 --> 00:21:07

And lastly, acting upon it the third and I'm going to end with this in two minutes. The third basic objective

00:21:08 --> 00:21:13

of the sorry, the third right of the Quran over us.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:50

Recitation one, try to understand the meaning number two, and number three is acting upon the verses. Now acting upon many of the verses are to do with you know the Kodaira the power the might of Allah, Allah says Allah you have no ruling eligibility for holy power to either summer People refer out etc. You know, take these meanings inside, try to act upon it when Allah says yeah, you Alladhina amanu Oh, you will believe what does Allah say straight after that? We need to think to ourselves, ALLAH is talking to me. Yeah, you Alladhina amanu Yes. Oh Allah, you're talking to me. Tell me Tell me Allah. And then stop for a moment. Pause. Yeah, you're Latina? Manu O you who

00:21:50 --> 00:22:28

believe? Yes, la Yes, her Coleman Coleman. A group of people should not make mockery of another group of people. As soon as we read that in the morning. How can I spend the day mocking other people? Allah is telling me Allah is her own women home? Allah says Leila baldachin Baba. None of you should backbite whether you're a male male or a female whether you have a lot of issues do not tell talk behind the back of somebody else. Don't pick up the WhatsApp and say sister you know you she's like this and he's like this or brother like this. Like an all the tail bearing. You just read in the morning lie Okta, bada boom bada Allah is saying haram backbiting with certain exceptions

00:22:28 --> 00:23:09

only find out when it's haram. Allah says each tourney boo cathedra Milligan Oh, you will believe stay away. Abstain from suspicion from having evil suspicions about people. Give people benefit of the doubt. As soon as you see someone, this guy is coming past the Masjid. Oh, he must have not prayed. Allah says Eastern Hebrew cathedra may have been and so on and so forth, acting upon the verses of the Quran, just go directly. We don't need no one to tell us. Allah is telling us what else better than Allah subhanaw taala our Lord and Creator telling us so this is the third very, very important objective which is acting upon the spirit of the Quran Quran and then if you want to

00:23:09 --> 00:23:11

say like

00:23:12 --> 00:23:57

icing on the cake or the masala or the char whatever you want to call it, then memorizing memorizing is like the icing on the cake, but you gotta have the cake as Americans say you gotta have the cake, not just have the icing memorizing comes after these three things. To our understanding and acting upon the Quran are three important things on top of which is the memorization. There's reward in memorization as well. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the ability to attach ourselves with his Kalam with his speech. May Allah grant us the blessings. Don't just use the Quran just for adornment and keep it in the house. This Quran looks really amazing. This is my beautiful pink Quran yes it is

00:23:57 --> 00:24:01

a very beautiful pink Quran sister Pinkus for sisters right

00:24:02 --> 00:24:40

it's a very beautiful Quran but yes pick it up don't just use it for some like every time you feel you know like some problems in life oh now I turned to the Quran know whether you have problems are no problems. Quran is not just for problems. Quran is for daily life, whether you're enjoying life, whether you're feeling sad, depressed, or happy, whatever state don't just use it, use it for amulets and things like that. So this is what the Quran is for May Allah grant us the ability to attach ourselves and to the Quran, and may as may give us the blessings of his words and his speech of Guru Cody ha That was tougher. I would like to thank once again miftah Institute for this

00:24:40 --> 00:24:56

amazing, amazing program that they've organized today. And I'm sure half of you are traveling down the EM one or something to go to London tomorrow. No people don't who don't travel. Sorry. You have another audience down there. But I think some of you will be going Inshallah, to Allah may Allah bless all of you Giselle Kamala Harris
