to be here with you today and being invited
for this annual gathering of Jamia Abdullah hipness Roeder of the Allahu Anhu
and the theme as you all know, the poster you must have seen, if not, you can see it right now. Our relationship with the Quran and even if you haven't seen it, you've heard the speaker speaking about something to do with the Quran.
What I want to do briefly is to
approach this topic
in light of a specific verse of the Quran
and I want to approach this topic
from a particular angle.
I want to approach the topic of Quran
from a specific perspective,
this Quran, the book of Allah, the words and the speech
which is the kalam Allah, the speech of Allah subhanahu Adana.
It's a unique book. It's unlike any other book. It's unique, it's unparent. It's
unchangeable until the day of judgment and beyond. Now you hire one or you believe that the Quran cannot be changed or altered or tampered with. It's a unique book of Allah we have to remember this first and foremost, brothers and sisters. It's the speech and Kaname of Allah. These are the words of ALLAH, the whole Quran the whole book, the words of Allah, not the words of any human being. It's the words of ALLAH, Tala and Quran is actually just one name of many names.
Or is just one name. There are numerous names for this book. And Quran is one name and Bura Han is another name a TBR is another name a NOR is another name. Al Kitab is another name or if LOM meme Xylitol kita Allah says the book Al Kitab, la Ray Buffy
many numerous names the ALMA have actually compiled books, in which they have mentioned and listed the various names of the Quran used by Allah and His Messenger Salallahu. Salam themselves. Some of them have actually mentioned 99 names for the Quran for the book of Allah. Quran is just one name of many names. It's actually from the word there are no mustard is Tara, which means recitation. It's regularly reciting. It's recited Karaca, which means to recite. This is a unique book
and permanent aid distinctive book, The speech and column of Allah, we should consider it to be a Niyama a gift a bounty from our Lord and
Our creator, we should not take you for granted. Unfortunately what's happened that you know many of us we actually take the Quran for granted. Because we were born Muslims, we found the Quran in front of us, no effort, no hardship, no difficulty in obtaining the book of Allah we are born we see the Quran in our homes, in the masjid, it's printed, it's published 1000s of copies.
It's there before us. We take it for granted and because we don't really truly appreciate and value, the book of Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala we don't give it the due right, the verse of the Quran and this is what I want to discuss. Allahu Subhana Allah to Allah in the Quran says Wallasey luminol or Ernie ma who was Shiva or metal meanie. We have indeed revealed the Quran as a cue.
We have indeed revealed the Quran as a cure shifa. 100 Zero mineral Quran a man who she * we hear this many times, Quran is a cube. Now what I want to do is
look at the Quran being Shiva and cure from three different angles in three different ways.
The Quran is a Shiva and a cure
for us spiritually number one. Number two, the Quran is a cure for the diseases and ailments and the problems and of the Society of our communities. Find one which tama and number three, the Quran is also a cure from physical maladies, physical diseases and physical sicknesses. But from the three the Quran being a cure spiritually for societal problems, and number three for physical problems and illnesses. The first two is really new and the Quran is a cube. The first two are the primary areas where the book of Allah who subhanho wa Taala is a Shiva it's a tool. The first two are the main two areas. Imam Hassan is a bustling Rahim Allah used to actually say the Quran is only a spiritual
fuel. The Quran is not a cure for physical illnesses and sicknesses. Even though this opinion is his own opinion, and a personal opinion the mainstream majority of the scholars have his own their opinion and understanding is that the Quran is a cure even for physical ailments and sicknesses. But nevertheless, oran is primarily fundamentally and chiefly it is a spiritual cure it's a cure for us in a spiritual sense. And if we do not take the Quran as a cure for our spiritual problems for the sudo and this is what I'm gonna say when owners zoom in on Quran uma who was Shiva very And indeed We have revealed Al Quran the book Maha Shiva that we were gonna say no mineral Quran we have
revealed the main here those of you who know Arabic mid like email Europa email Josias says this mean is not for the very, not we have revealed parts or portions of the Quran. This is mean min Albania which means we have revealed the book the whole of Quran from the beginning till the end, as a cue as a Shiva as a tool as a remedy Rama and a source of Mercy lineament meaning for the believers in another verse. Allah says, what oh Jana who are earning our Jamia, how do we reveal this book in a non Arabic language? Like all the non Muslims in the time for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they actually requested I demanded that why didn't the Quran be revealed
in some other language? Why in Arabic Allah responded and he said, How do we reveal this book in a non Arabic language? luevano they would have said no lawful solid to why other verses not explained. Clearly Lola is our German army that would have said a prophet who is an Arab, and the book is in a non Arabic language. And then Allah says on all messenger say to them, who call him Nina ermine, who who don't wish to say to the believers this book is a guidance and is a cure. It's a Shiva. So we all know Quran from these two verses, we've learned that the Quran is a cure. But as I said, primarily fundamentally, Quran is a spiritual cure, we unfortunately move on to the second word,
onto the third step. For us Quran is sometimes someone who gets ill or sick, make an amulet out of it, read some of the verses of the Quran, blow on water and drink it. And that's the only time you will use the book of Allah. That's something on the side. It's linen. Quran is not primarily a cure for physical disease it's there as I will talk about it. But ultimately I'm primarily Quran is a Shiva when the word Allah
Since Quran is cure, it's a spiritual cure. And this is why Allah says here are Yohannes all mankind, a jerk who are able to mirror become remember the moment Rila which is the Quran Allah see her the advice the guidance has come to you from your Lord, or the Jurco morellato Mera Beco. And then what does Allah say? Was Schiefer only Murphy So do this marina, this Oran, this book of Allah speech kalaam of Allah is Shiva with a cure for what Lima is to do for the for that which is inside of the heart, spiritual cure. The Quran is a spiritual cure, cure from a spiritual disease from spiritual ailments, ailments and problems and diseases, and sicknesses and maladies that's what the
Quran is really for. And brothers, we really need to take the Quran as a spiritual issue. But how does the Quran be a spiritual cure? How do we take it as a spiritual? Because that's the question
how do how will the book of Allah, how will the speech and kalam of Allah, the words of Allah be a killer for us spiritually? How? The first thing as we all know that we need to read the book of Allah and the scholars have said that we have to read and of course we all know we and and this is something we all know that we need to read the book of Allah.
We all know that we have to read the book of Allah, that's something that
Tila, which is a burden. We all know we have to we have to recite. That's something every Muslim knows. So I don't want to really emphasize the importance of dilla because we all know and there are numerous verses of the Quran. Tila always in a bird. It's a form of worshiping Allah and much much reward on recitation, right and this hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for example, in the Sahara of Muslim Ummah, Alba European lover and he relates the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Al Quran Al Quran recited the Quran for a noble Yeti Yeoman Yama de Shafi Aeneas Javi it will come on the day of judgment as to intercede it will intercede on the Day of
Judgment for the one who recited it higher command Darla mille Quran, our Allameh best amongst you is the one who teaches the teachers and the students who see and learn the book and numerous Hadith and the messengers of Allah he was delivering the Muslims of Imam Muhammad there's a hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a serum will earn yesterday I really was happy, both fasting and the Quran on the day of judgment will come and intercede for the one who observed the fast and the one who recited the book of Allah, your own on your own are slim Jambi minority who parama Warszawa fina, ha this fast, Allah will give it the ability to speak to converse and it will
speak and it will say that oh my lord in the world, I prevented this person to buy preventive food he was unable to eat and I prevented him fulfilling his desires during the day for sure fairly, really accept my intercession for him and enter into paradise. Well Quran your code and Quran will also speak Allah will give the Quran the ability the capability to speak and converse the Quran sejarah be Monarto who shut off Mala to who Noma filet I prevented him from sleeping at night he never slept, his his, his sacrifices sleep to read me for sure very easily, except my mug intercession for him for you. Chapin in both Allah will accept the intercession of fast as well as
the Quran. So anyway, we all know about the reading of the Quran. But there's a big bunch here.
Brothers and sisters, this is the important part. If we really want the book of Allah, the Quran colomba to be a spiritual killer for us, to help us spiritually for it to be Shiva only must feel so dual. Then there are etiquettes there are laws that are done, there are dug, there is a method of reading the book of Allah. There is a way of reading the book of Allah there is a method and a manner in which the book of Allah who subhanho data has to be recited.
If you want to be the best hydropool Mandala lemma, and if you if we want the Quran to intercede for us to be a spiritual cue for us in this world, and there is a way it's not what some of the scholars also mentioned, it's not just that we read it anyhow. There are books, literally books are written in regard to the method the manner in which a person a Muslim, a believer is supposed to read the book of Allah you
Minogue Rahim Allah the I'm one of the great Imams of this ummah, and great to have this to wrote a commentary on the Saheeh of non Muslim in numerous volumes, also a great foundation in the shelf a Muslim, Imam mohill de unknowing. He actually wrote a whole book in Arabic. It's a small book, well, not too small, but it's a concise enough book. It's also translated into English, a TBR and the other the Hamelin Quran, the etiquettes. In regards to the recitation of the book of Allah, and some of the things that he mentioned, the earlier other man, the son of what they used to do, in light of the various verses of the Quran and the Hadith of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this
is not an ordinary book, you're not reading Harry Potter. It's not an ordinary book. There are at cuts. It's really just like any other ordinary book, then indeed, it will not help us. But it's not the ordinary book. It's not just any book you pick up and you just lie down on your bed and chill and just spread your legs and relax and say, oh, yeah, I'm just reading a storybook. These are the words of ALLAH imagined. It's not the words these are not the words of a human being. Direct, Kalam Allah, these are exactly the words.
Then can kita these are exactly the word not even by meaning. And Quran will love one number men who are married in the books of Kasun, those who study here are some of the books that are studied to become an ion. When they define Quran the Quran is Quran is Mayan Pauline who love the Lunarlon it's something that love learn by word as well as by meaning. It's not an expression of the meaning of Allah by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his own words, it's online that
Do you understand what I'm saying? It's not what Allah intended. And the messengers of Allah who it was Salam is using his own expression known, even the words every letter is the letter and Kaname of Allah, it's not an ordinary book. So there are, if it's, if it's an extra ordinary book, then there are advocates that are extraordinary. Like who, for example, what in order for the Quran to intercede for us in order for us to have that strong connection and relationship and bond and link with the book of Allah Allah subhanaw taala is
the early scholars they used to.
They used to select and choose
the right and appropriate place, and the right and appropriate time to read the book of Allah. Point number one McGahn was the man
the right place, and the right time, right place. Of course, you can reach anywhere you can sit here and read as well the book of Allah. But in order to fulfill the etiquettes some said it's good to read in the masjid, the house of Allah is the most beautiful place where you can read the book of Allah, turning and facing in the direction of the curriculum.
It's an anti cut. Some of them used to actually prepare themselves before the sermon in Mecca phase to give importance to Nevada and Tahara. They used to cleanse themselves become pure and clean. They used to use the seawater and brushed your teeth fresh in the mouth. You go to an important meeting. We all go to meetings, when we go to meetings, what do we do? We take can we use a mouth freshener? In Shall we eat extra chewing gum? People use extra chewing gum for other reasons as well for good things as well in a good relationship inshallah Well, in our opinion to finish up, but people want that they don't have a bad odor in their mouth. Because you know you want don't want to offend
anybody. This is a conversation with Allah, that early scholars used to use the Seiwa this to brush their teeth, make wudu ablution or take a hosel
beautify the clothing plate, apply some perfu writer, God centered oneself, we are moving we are we are reading the book of Allah. It's not a newspaper. And it's not any human being or any scholars book.
Imagine this is this is the approach that we need to take and then select the right place. If you can in the masjid great if not at home anywhere. But don't read the book of Allah when you are disturbed.
The TV is on and you end up in the corner of the room trying to read the Quran you need a place of solitude of seclusion, where you are able to concentrate and then the time select Quran can be recited anytime during the 24 hours. But there are certain
times like for example in the middle of the night, the Hadith I've just quoted. The Quran will say you're robbing Monarto who laid off in Morocco who Noma filet. I prevented him from sleeping at night, in the middle of the night in Salah 200 In peon lane, and lecture curfew Sufi was saying, in sonata Ravi, listening and reciting the book of Allah in the middle of the night.
And one of the really important and great times to read the book of Allah seriously, you need to give really important studies, and those of you who do have this habit, you know, yourself the benefits of this, reading a book of Allah, LT in the morning after Salatin Fajr
This is a must for every Muslim, maybe you can wake up at night and read the book of Allah, then at least in your life, at least take out 20 minutes, half an hour, if not 15 minutes. I mean a Muslim who spends a life of 1716 5080 years and cannot read the book of Allah everyday we do everything we're saying we're very busy, busy, busy life, very busy. 10 minutes from our 24 hour schedule. To read the book of Allah. It's not difficult. 10 minutes in the morning.
And seriously, if you read in the morning, you'll see the benefits. Your whole day will go soon. It's one of the really important means of getting achieving and obtaining that peace and tranquility and smoothness in your day. start of your day with Serato Fraser a bit of alcohol and so far, and the recitation of the book of God you'll see that day is much better than a day in which you don't read the book of Allah. Early in the morning. When you know recite the book of Allah this is in the Quran. Allah says our pain is solid and it led me to look sharp single AHA supreme language and
earn and Fajr have been a solid establish your prayer we do Luca shrimps do Luke means zawa when you know son start when it comes to the center and started moving down. So from that time start offering your prayers which means God allow something which includes the harasser mother Orisha all the way until when the night ends. So Allah mentions for prayers in Athena salata, we do look a sham, c'est la vie something. And then he says what?
Allah is really talking about Serato version but to describe the fajr prayer, he said we're called an unfortunate Quran or Fajr in the Quran, and Virginie Ghana, Masha Houda, the Quran or furture is well attended, well attended by Lu, the angels tabula Malika it's a unique time, you know, when it's not too light and not too dark.
You're by yourself in a peaceful, tranquil state, you're fresh in the mind. You've just woken up from a good night's sleep
without seeing any dreams that you're not supposed to see. May Allah save us all from the boundaries, but inshallah we woken up from a nice sleep and sleep early. So you spent good six, seven hours you're fresh and first thing in your day? The first thing that comes on your mind in your brain is the on your tongue, the kalam of Allah the speech of Allah in the Quran and Virginie carnamah Shuda and Wamena ladies at 100 B and also at night recite and performance on performed Tahajjud prayer BD with the Quran and some more etiquettes which looked at the time we look at the place.
The next two things the ALMA emember know we mentioned in his book that these two are Luca nanny I Lima, the two integrals, the most important elements in regards to the etiquettes of reciting the book of Allah. Oracle Oracle means the integral, verruca nanny or the man what are they? Number 113 Number two, the book some of the scholars chakra, so we mentioned having about 13 as well.
The theme, what is the theme reciting the book of Allah in a calm, composed, measured manner?
The Thiele Allah says a water TV reporter, tell the dealer recite the book slowly until Dena Allah emphasized it this will be called a key emphasis. What are some Tina what are the parameters theta? The first part of this 13th is to recite every letter as it ought to be recited.
Maha reality done with the juried will pull
Bro implementation of the rules of the dream. Unfortunately, we live in a time where people are born Muslims, they consider themselves Muslims, they live a life of 70 years. They have a degree in every field. They know everything about the politics, they know how to make an atom bomb. They know all the details about everything. But the basic that they think that they don't know is how to read the book of Allah. I mean, that's so sad.
That's the most sad thing you can ever find in this world. A Muslim who's 30 years of age, he cannot recite in Arabic. Remember, the rewards are in Arabic, there is benefit in reading the translation as well. But when the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that there is a real pretend rewards on every letter, or a player of all earnings on her phone while I'm on her phone, when we will hydrophone la, la meme have been an even harder formula on how often women will have every LF
me 30 rewards, it's on the ledger, because these are the letters and words of Allah, a Muslim who spends a life of 50 6070 years, if he cannot learn how to recite the book of Allah, with proper implementation of the rules of the dream, then that Muslim is in a extremely sad state. It's very, very sad, dark Muslim, it's very unfortunate. It's your basic book before anything in this world, before ever picking up a newspaper before ever going onto the internet. Before even knowing how to use a computer or a PC or an iPhone.
The first thing in your life is learning how to read the book of Allah. That doesn't mean that somebody who hasn't learned that times past know until death we have time, you could be 16 Stop today. Take our time, 20 minutes half an hour. We are not living for this world. We are living for the next life. This life is short. So when the Dream Team wins with the dream, and also part of reciting the book of Allah when they dream is to recite it calmly, in a composed manner in a composed measured tone. This is the theme not Don't be hasty. Remember with Allah it's not about quantity. It's about quality. It's not about quality, Ramadan is coming. Ramadan has a strong
connection with a book of Allah, Shalom Ramadan and levy on Zina V Hill Quran in Salah who feel a little Ramadan is who are shallow Quran. It's the month of Quran. Read it slowly. This reading it gradually slowly is what is required. Remember, it's not about quantity. You can make 10 completions of the Quran.
But someone who probably makes one completion and desert with proper etiquettes is far better.
It's not about reading fast and finishing 20 3040 6100 I've done 100 Like I'm just you don't even read no realize what you've read yourself. Some of the letters are children on the lower level than
me and internally some translation people saying we want our songs to recite fast and others around us.
This is this is totally wrong against the spirit of Islam.
It's it's more wrong and this is a ruling it's more wrong to come and read and stand behind the Imam and want to the Imam to haste and read fast but not read altogether. This is a ruling
seriously because reading with the DRI slowly gradually is fun. What is it fun.
And completing the Quran is very, very extremely important but it's so now you supposed to do both. I'm not telling you to choose one. But if there wasn't a choice between the two, you read lesson complete with proper etiquette.
When proper advocates complete the book of Allah slowly, gradually
don't ask and demand from the Imam to recite it in a fast manner in a hasty way. And don't recite yourself in a hasty way.
Remember we did we should oppose the Quran meaning it should not be like a burden taraweeh is not a burden. Worship of law with love, not out of extreme fear. That is purely man obaidul havurah jump but Hunter love desire. You want to listen to the book of Allah. Not okay, it's a burden quick 20 Oh, what time is it? How many after set on Brother How many left?
What do you do? To Moloch? How much you have asked me to record the asking? If that's not the way your Muslim worships Allah? When you will you Beloved, you're spending time in the company of your beloved wife or husband in sha Allah.
You're newly married? Do you even ask him? What time is it? What time is it? I need to go, I need to go. You just buy like 10 minutes? What time is it? How many how much time do we have left here? You want to enjoy every minute. That's our relationship with Allah, we need to enjoy every minute of solitude per week. So that's the key. And the next point I mentioned to remember
that the book, this is unique, this is important that the elbow and I think most disabled is found probably you mentioned some of this, I wasn't here, but from Shafiq Sophie's talk, it indicated that he mentioned something about a double
reflection and thought,
remember, oran will be a spiritual cure for us. If we recite the book of Allah with understanding with concentration with reflection with the foot goal and the double bowl. Remember, there are two extremes here right? I'll tell you this, this is this is there are two extremes here. There's one extreme within some Muslims who actually they don't have the tools. They don't know the Arabic language and even if you know that Arabic language Quran is it's unique. It's not forever. It's not every Tom, Dick and Harry his cup of tea. It's called Iron, calm the rules regulations is tembaga law calm, but our rules are that our business is related to law and really requires a lot of
explanation and deep understanding. And you need all the necessary tools, everything from Arabic language and grammar and sada for now and enjoy your Hadith and determine origins of Hadith and as billable, neutral and pseudo Hadith and for Sahaba and Bella numerous sciences. One extreme is somebody with some people is that without any tools they start, you know, translating the Quran and deriving and extracting laws and rules, deviating themselves and deviating others Mankad Ernabella he the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever said in his own opinion in the Quran, something for Osama, even if he was right is incorrect, for let alone will look either human or non
let him make his abode in the fire of hell. That's one extreme. However, we have another extreme. And this needs to be also said and understood. Some of us we've taken an oath, that until death do us part. We will never even understand one lecture of the book of Allah or one word, who said that this is all part of Islam.
This is another extreme we don't want to understand it all. We think it's completely totally utterly forbidden haram sinful to even know what Jelena means. Nobody said that. There are verses of the Quran that are detailed if we leave that to the scholars, there are simple verses of Jannah of Jahannam of the previous nations.
There are simple verses and this is why Allah says what happens your son will enter the vehicle. We have made the Quran easy for Vika, for for the basic message, let's see how guidance we can understand keeper good, reliable translation with you in your morning. When you're reciting the book of Allah. God when the translation anything difficult, complicated stuff, leave it and then go and ask your local human with a shoe and Oliver and go to them and seek explanation on the proper commentary. But basic meanings to the point that so many Muslims do not even know the meaning of Surah Fatiha we recite Surah Fatiha daily how many times I don't know how many times I haven't done
17 times just for farai and much more.
But we don't know how or not even the meaning of Surah Fatiha if we know the meanings that our Salah totally gets transformed, totally transformed when you recite him and this is what we call Who should we have who should and we have Hello Allah who do have Allah who will assure availability who do these are two words that don't mean the same Koshu Anhedonia there's a difference who is externally your salah is in accordance with the Sunnah, like the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for local or at Munoz salary, but who is inside concentration and there are three levels of wushu and Allah mentioned the first basic level of wushu in Salah when you want your prayer to
benefit you if we want to open prays that don't benefit us nowadays because our Salah is just like an empty, you know gas free. There's there's no power in the prayer
If we want Saracho purpose and benefits in this life and prevent us in a certain fashion, you will mooncup There are three levels of Sure. First basic level is actually knowing and realizing what you're doing at that particular time. Allahu Akbar, I know why I'm saying Allahu Akbar. Probably most of us remember that Subhanak Allahumma will be Hungarica what? avarcas muka with Elijah Dukkha. Well, we should know the meaning. Or there's a Dr. Toji new agenda was shared and any further or similarity when all of the Hadith our mother nebulosity, we need to know the meaning of that is and then our ultimate definition upon Ragini Bismillah Alhamdulillah if you know the meanings, or unique
verses for our beloved, I mean, you're thinking a lot about it. If you know the verse you never complain about the Imam reading so slow, you're enjoying it. To do the phone call into DARPA, you will know everything if you're not a scholar. That doesn't mean every single verse you know, but you'll get the basic gist of what's happening. But at least you have a rock man, Rahim Malik, you redeem, you're gonna do a you're gonna start in Indiana, a syrup and we're stopping this verse in its Sunday. Oh Allah take us onto the string path, not even guidance. Some of the elements of the translation is better to do take us guidance is to show direction if I asked someone once was, you
know, malleable in Sheffield. Not been there by the way? Yeah, this is the first immersion I've actually I've lived a bone here firsthand, ever I've come to Sheffield through the work of Harvey Sheffield.
Where's Manuel and so you take a really colorful day go with a father
I was gonna say fountain could go the flyover take a ride take a left and then you know take a U turn from there and hit aggregate that's directing someone that's he died that's he you know if Allah says in the Quran if we were reciting at dinner either sorority that's Allah say okay good. That's the straight path take a right to left go this way that way. But Allah did not use a dinner Illa sorority if they lost
all our don't show us and guide us and tell us from far away the right path is just pick us up and put us on the right path. This is a stepping stone Serapion Lavina and I'm Talia Himalayan
of Bali. With our new these verses we should shake up us. Every time we read it. It increases your iman toliet Aryan iron was added to the mana. So we have this duty to understand. And this is in the Quran, he terrible and Santa alayka. Mubarak can live double it, how messenger will reveal the book to you
is which is full of blessings. Why the number why it so that they reflect and ponder. We need to use our brains brothers and sisters. We live in a tower many of us we don't use the great intellect and apple that Allah has given us. If we don't use this it becomes rusty. You need to keep it fresh by using it. Allah says in the Quran upon reflection, a fella had a balloon and Quran don't they reflect and ponder over the Quran? Allah blooming Aqua Luna for all the hearts sealed and locked and closed and blocked and I'm believing. So this is the reflection. When you when I have Rama comes with the Mercy of Allah you know you're reading the Quran first thing in the morning Subhan Allah
and you see the Quran, the eye of Rama talking about the Mercy of Allah. Allah says you know in the Quran or Rahman Rahim for example or
any of the verse that talks about the Rama mercy follow you stop there you ponder this is tougher content Apple, you reflect you think for a while for Allah, your ama Your mercy is great. Look at all the near and all the bounties all the gifts you have given me Allah Who Maharani Allah and cream you've already have mercy on me, increase me in the Mercy give me more a hammer. When the ayah verse of punishing you pass by, you come across an array of punishment other than if that punishment is about the kuffar the non believers. Then you think Alhamdulillah Allah made me a believer, thank Allah, Allah, I thank you. show gratitude for being a believer and renew your mind. Say, I'm going
to believe you. I believe in Allah. If the lie is about sinful believers, that if you are free from that sin, and again, praise Allah, thank Allah, Allah, I am thankful that I'm not involved in this Zina, while I'm talking about Xena Alhamdulillah Allah not involved in this and keep me like this on the deal until I died. And if you are involved in a sin, that sin the one which has been mentioned, then would you do
What do we do? Still farm straightaway seek don't buy repent from Allah subhanho di, that our verse This is all at because there are verses in the Quran when Allah addresses us.

This is the way to read the book of ALLAH SubhanA with the island. And when there are verses to do with the previous nations
Take heed, they will they will not just tune it for stories use of ARIA salatu wa salam peace be upon him. The story of Musa and the story of all the other nation prophets, Allah hemosol to offer it asleep. And of nations, they will not just stories that, you know, we listen to them as stories and entertainment, nonetheless being relevant and they will revealed regarding them as a lesson for us as a lesson for us to take lessons from these stories. And also when I heard it was like, crime shedding some tears. Imam Al Ghazali Rahim Allah, the great scholar of this OMA Mohammed Hoja to Islam, they used to call him he would say Al Volker, who was to have gone to Quran, it's recommended
to shed some tears. And actually, it's in the Hadith. There's a hadith of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said,
Go read the Quran and cry for any length comfortable. If you can't cry, then just try just pretend you're crying. When a Muslim is reading the words of ALLAH he's reading with when it comes out from the heart. And this is the reason why when we listen to someone and emo who is reading from the heart, it affects our hearts.
The Quran should come out from the heart, not just from the mouth. So with crying as well. Repetition of verses to Corrado. Also one of the great recommended things repeat, an important verse comes repeat. That's why we hear some of the humans they repeat the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Once he was reciting, he came to the first team to identify in the home area birds were in Philadelphia alone for under as evil hockey. How lighter repeated the verse.
No time for translation, but a whole night he repeated that verse. Talk, talk with Allah. This is what we call the gentle responding. Allah says in surah T was a to Elisa Allahu be Kamil Hakimi is an Allah the Lord of the Lord Allah is isn't Allah the ruler of the rulers, the greatest ruler akam and Hakimi. Allah used to save Bella, indeed, oh Allah. There is no shocking there is no doubt in it. What are the other income in Ushahidi? I am a witness to the fact and I will help you meet your academic Hakimi.
So these are the etiquettes in which we should read the book of Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala also recitation brothers and sisters. Press the tape sorry. Also listening is a great act of a bird. Not just reading reading is more important but even listening, Abdullah, you know Masada the Allahu Anhu once was when the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, recite some Quran to
a subliminal Yadava. He said, what occurred? Alico. Alico owns
How can I read on you and the Quran was revealed to me reading to you. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he knew Hebrew and a smart woman, the lady. Sometimes I like to listen from someone else.
And then Abdullah Massaro said to Surah Tell me sir, I recited Surah 10 Lisa and I recited and I recited and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was engrossed
deep in the rest in the listening of the book of Allah had the ability to get an idea for K fie the genome in Coolio marimba Shaheed was a big winner in Shahida when I came to this verse, which means that the messengers or Allah from every nation, will bring a witness to your messenger, you will be a witness to all these witnesses. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me has spoken has spoken enough enough, that's enough for an Ebola to lay him out of Dubai numerous roles that are locked at the mercy of Allah salAllahu Alaihe salam for either a noted refer his eyes were shedding tears. This is listening, we need to take time out and listen brothers and sisters, more time to
listen to the Quran, the listening to the news or listening to the radio or even listening to I may say this maybe you agree or not to religious talks and maybe not just talking too important you need that's the explanation of the Quran. But definitely more than machines.
That's perfectly fine to listening to the sheet we haven't achieved in our programs perfectly fine night love them. But the amount of time we spend on the sheet our time listening to the Quran should be double
because most of this is entertainment nowadays we don't even understand sometimes the meanings people just like the beats and the issues and the iPod and the iPad and the I phone and this and all that I'm downloading everything and it's relaxing. You know in the car and listen to the Quran. First and foremost give Quran more attention listen to not more than you listen to the sheet. Because it's people our night this night. Why do you like it for Is there some spiritual meaning maybe for some people? Yes. But for some most of us is entertainment who don't even understand like one brother came to me with a CDs you know, I want to know that this is how long the drums okay in
this you know, can you check it out for me? I said okay, I'll listen to it. I put the CD on.
And you know what it was? Was Arabic but you know what it was a Lebanese singer singing about music about sex but stuff like that. And he said I'll be listening for the past year. It sounds beautiful is it has alone you know the gospel Kabbalah ish British coma. And so he's thinking about level one. Now he's talking about his beloved and about sex and things like that. Now, anything that sounds the guy doesn't know Arabic, anything sounds Arabic, for him is like a machine to do with Islam that had nothing to do with Islam. He was a Lebanese singer. You know, by the way, Lebanese, Lebanon few times, they love Danish dancing and the music of the Arabic tunes come out from the Lebanese, a lot
of the Indian and Pakistani and older tunes come out from the Pakistani songs. But okay, you can listen but listening, giving more attention to the book of Allah, listen to it, read it recited, ponder over it, reflect on it, understand it go to the scholars and learning the meanings that have seen the commentary of the book of Allah subhanahu, Derrida and if we do that, then the Quran will be a cure for spiritual. I've only done one point. There's no time for the second and the third point, but I'm just going to stop here. Quran will become I started with the talk when when was it?
When was the nominal or an Imam was Shiva. We have revealed the Quran as a Shiva cure. Shiva cure spiritually, number one, number two, cure for all the societal global family problems. And number three physical illnesses. I've just covered the first point which is oran being a spiritual cure for us Shiva only math is to do if Allah gives time some other time we may talk about the second point how the Quran is a cue for our problems and tone, family problems, problems within the within the community in the society global problems. And lastly, how Quran is also a cure from headaches from physical, you know from physical diseases and illnesses. And with this Inshallah, I pray Allah
subhanaw taala grant me first and foremost all of you to tofield to practice on some of the things that have been said. And we also pray like chakra fees to be paid and mental health for these children. May Allah grant them to make them great Muslims out from amongst his own ear and his friends, those who learn the Quran and those who will read the Quran and not just read it but also understand it try
to reflect upon it recited with all the etiquette and implement the message of the Quran in the realization of Akula Kohala was
