00:00:09--> 00:00:20

when our older bit later either visually unforeseen Jose or Dr. Medina. Me I didn't know for them in the novel woman who did it forever. The other question was,

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


00:01:03--> 00:01:04


00:01:06--> 00:01:12

I can just ask the voters to just slightly move ahead which there's too much distance between myself and yourself

00:01:18--> 00:01:19


00:01:22--> 00:01:29

as the brother just introduced today's topic, and it was the book of ALLAH SubhanA.

00:01:31--> 00:01:38

And as he also mentioned that I've been coming here a few times previously, I think I've been here at least four times.

00:01:39--> 00:02:04

Previously giving talks I also gave once a course on the weekend course Saturday and Sunday from a book called unintelligible Islam. So this Masjid is quite familiar. But one thing I see that every time I come, I see new faces, different faces, I don't see some old faces, and I see different new faces. So hamdulillah it's good. I think people are moving in from this area of what was best

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

for the topic.

00:02:08--> 00:02:18

Today's topic revolves around or it's a very important topic and I really want your attention brothers and sisters are on being a kill a Shiva,

00:02:20--> 00:03:08

spiritual Shiva, as well as a Shiva for our societal problems, as well as oran being a cure for physical ailments, marriages and diseases, and illnesses and sicknesses. These are three areas and I'm going to talk about this these three areas, this unique book, the Quran, the words of Allah subhanho into Ireland, the cardamom Allah speech of Allah, this book, we need to sometimes think that this is such a amazing, unique book. It's an unparalleled book, unique book, and why wouldn't it be a unique book it because they are the words of ALLAH imagined? These are the actual words, the statements, the words of our Lord and our Creator Allah subhanaw taala or

00:03:10--> 00:03:46

the Quran has many different names given to it. All of us have actually the scholars have actually written books, compiling and gathering the various names of this unique book of herbs are the based on the names that have been mentioned in the Quran itself, or also be called and develop and it's been very good Kitab never ever feed. Al Kitab. Allah talks about Orion describes it as being the book allocator is also known as a good guidance and for that which differentiates between unhealth What about truth and falsehood, and mean, it's also been called

00:03:48--> 00:03:49

the right message.

00:03:51--> 00:04:35

And numerous other other names that have been given some of the other as I said, they compiled books, and they gathered the names of this book, approximately totally 290, odd names, and even more to this unique book of awards panel, we've added a book which is unparalleled and equal, unchangeable. Very important point. It's unchangeable. You know, you're medically up until the Day of Judgment, no matter what people say, or what they want to do, and people want to interpret it in a different way or change parts of it or remove it and versus from the book of Allah, this book of Allah, it's until the final until the judgment was panel. The dialer said this as the final book

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

from all the different books and scriptures that was sent. Remember, there were many scriptures, many, many small scriptures that are given to different Umbria and prophets circle Ibrahim, or Musa says the Prophet Abraham or Musa that Scripture is given to Brahim and Musa and many of the prophets that were given small booklets and scriptures, and the four main books a Torah was a woman Eugene, Oregon is the final group on Earth.

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

final messenger of ALLAH from above it he will send a unique

00:05:04--> 00:05:14

we sometimes forget to realize how unique this book of Allah subhanaw taala is reason being you know why because we see it everyday you see this will be coming to the masjid.

00:05:15--> 00:05:31

You know, this is such a unique book, imagine these are the word of Allah. But we don't. I don't say for everyone but many of us we do not appreciate this book of Allah, we don't totally value and appreciate the book of Allah we don't we don't really evaluate.

00:05:32--> 00:06:17

Reason Because the reason behind this is because we did not have to struggle, we never had to sacrifice. We never had to spend any wealth or any money or we we never underwent any difficulties and hardships in order to gain this book. The real true appreciation and value of this, who has the true appreciation, the companions of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Sahaba of the love and the love and peace with the whole, ask them the true value of the book of Allah, who want for every verse for small small verses of the book of Allah, they had to spend money they had to give him give their lives in order to even acquire one single verse of the book of Allah subhanho

00:06:17--> 00:06:55

wa Taala they sacrifice their wealth, their money under when hardships and difficulties for us, it is very easy, we will only see the focus there, you know, the different colors of blue, red, green, and let's say it's gathering dust at home, sometimes we don't really appreciate and value this book. So the first point is that we really need to be, you know, we need to think I reflect on his point he gave me these are the words of ALLAH, just imagine if someone, you know, sent us a letter or a book, someone who's absolutely Beloved to us, you know, some of the young people who are, you know, sometimes in love and lust and whatever, you know, they have a, you know, a love letter sent to them

00:06:55--> 00:07:32

by their beloved valuate and treasures are crucial, you know, keep yourself safe and then a flow, or I don't know where they should get to the point that you know, some of these young people you know, they they even keep the text messages know, the girlfriend boyfriend in the Halloween, let's say, you know, Halloween husband, why is my Shahada, I love text messages full of love you, Chris, you preserve it, you keep it safe, you don't even delete it. Imagine these are the words of Obama, who is not a human. The words of Allah, you know these words and how they learn to live, some of the early scholars will read and listen even one verse in the end, they will fall unconscious onto the

00:07:32--> 00:07:36

ground because of hearing these words of Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:37--> 00:08:23

These are the words of Allah. And that's why we really need to value and appreciate this book of Allah subhanaw taala but as I will say, what I want to really talk about is the Quran being a Shiva a cube with three different areas. And I want to talk about briefly these areas. And this is the reason we chose this topic. Quran being a Shiva a sense of cure, a means of cure. And Quran being a cure from number one spiritual diseases, the Quran being a spiritual tool number two, the Quran being a cure from the cure for the diseases and problems of the society. And number three, the Quran, the book of Allah, the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala be a cure for the diseases, spirit,

00:08:23--> 00:09:04

sorry, the physical managers and physical illnesses. So we want to talk about these three areas. And before I go on to talk about these two areas, the first two areas are the main two areas. First two areas and I will focus my talk more on the first few areas. And maybe just talk briefly a few minutes on the final area because primarily, primarily the bulk of a lot is a queue in a spiritual sense. And number two, it's a cure for the effect on which the problems of the society and number three on the side Yes, a cure from physical ailments and physical diseases of the body. So let's not look at these three areas. I mean, this is based around the verse of the Quran, the Quran itself,

00:09:04--> 00:09:28

tells us Allah subhanaw taala Himself tells us a cure a famous person, Allah subhanaw taala ISA and Surah Surah 104 early my voice she verbally, mentally when Azumino Quran very we reveal the book Wellness zero mineral Quran. Now this mean for those who know Arabic by

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

well and many others say that this made in the Bay Area Jinx, it's not when revealed from the Quran, it's we revealed the Quran, not part of the Quran, in the Quran, who Shiva because Quran is a que completely not part of the Quran. That means of show for us but rather the whole book of ALLAH from Sue at the beginning of solitaire Fatiha and how do they learn? There have been I mean, to me that agenda to oneness from the first verse to the last verse completely

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Book of Allah is a cure. So Allah says when

00:10:03--> 00:10:05

we reveal the book to

00:10:06--> 00:10:24

man or she felt, which is a cure to cure for you, man wish you vote when we're Rockman to new meaning it is a cure, in a sense, and it's full of Rama and mercy for the believers. And in another place, Allah says, well, Jana and Jamie and

00:10:26--> 00:10:51

some of the revolutionary policies, they requested the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam, why didn't Allah review this book in another language? Why are we so Allah said, how do we reveal this book? What if we had revealed Johanna Quran and RGR Jamia in a non Arabic language? Luckily, we don't have another problem with it, they would have said, no, no, I had to why why other verses not? Can you explain?

00:10:52--> 00:11:10

And then then they would say are German you will rip them prophet is an Arab and the book is in a non Arabic language, it doesn't make sense to us. So Allah said this, the reason why we sent and reveal the book and the Arabic language, and then after them, Allah says, Good old messenger say to them, who don't wish you for.

00:11:11--> 00:11:45

This book is a source or a sense of, or a means of guidance, who the worship firm and a cube, none of us and there are many of the verses that talk about the Quran being Shiva and cure I just mentioned two verses two one is sort of Sr. and the other one is sort of preset where Allah talks about the Quran being Shefali children's mother verses as well. Now the three areas in which Quran is a cue and a Shiva the most important element of Quran being a q&a she for the most important area

00:11:46--> 00:12:40

is the first area or on is Shiva river, a solo kill for the diseases of the heart, cure for the diseases of the inner self. It's a spiritual cure, or man is a cure in a spiritual sense and that's the primary that's the primary meaning of the Quran being Shiva and acute. Allah says in the Quran in surah culus you will notice Oh mankind humanity oh people are the agenda como river very to you has come No, no, no, no means no see, advice, guidance to has come that advice or and has been revealed to you or Jellico either to neuron people from your node and then Allah says, what she first will remember this although it is a Shiva. This Marilla this guidance this book, the Quran is

00:12:40--> 00:13:24

a Shiva a que Lima useful do cure for that which is in the heart that's kill for the diseases of the inner self image. This is a spiritual kill the Quran. In Hassanal bacillary Rahim Allah one of the great scholars, as I said, the main main understanding of the scholars is Quran is mainly primarily the cure for spiritual diseases, and that's why my focus will be more on that. And then number two or number three has an adverse event Mahoba he's to say, it's really his opinion, his position his understanding was a Quran should probably not be salute. Only the Quran is only when Allah talks about or unburied a que it is only in a spiritual sense. Anyway, that was his opinion, majority of

00:13:24--> 00:13:46

the scholars opinion is that no or on is a cure spiritually, physically, socially, all the problems that we find in our lives, but yes, primarily it is for every all the scholars agree on this fact that Quran is a show primarily for the diseases of the heart. It's a spiritual cure. It's a joyful, spiritual,

00:13:47--> 00:14:28

not how does this Quran the book of Allah, a cure for a spiritual, we say we have to book of Allah? Is this Quran going to be a que for us in a spiritual sense, if we leave it in the masjid, in the house of Allah within within within the you know, the covenants or in the Cabinet will report on via cue for us if we sit at home, gathering dust? Is the Quran going to be a spiritual pure forest? If we just pick it up in the month of Ramadan and just about read a few verses? Is there really be a tool for us? If we just read it whenever we feel like it when somebody maybe passes away? Or we do a hunter

00:14:29--> 00:14:32

know the Quran will not be a spiritual cure in

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

the doing those things? Quran being a spiritual cure, we all know that we have to recite the book of Allah. And now this is what I'm gonna explain to you how can we make the book of Allah, a spiritual cure for us we know we have to recite the book of Allah. There are many rewards many rewards that have been promised in reciting the Quran reciting the words of ALLAH reciting the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Have you

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

You're hanging out with my Muslims and you're going to Europe your loved one relates the messengers of Allah. Hi, Cara,

00:15:07--> 00:15:22

read the book of Allah, the Quran in Abuja at Shafi and it was heavy, because this book of Allah on the Day of Judgment will appear and will come and intercede for the one who used to reciting. There's a hadith in the Muslim,

00:15:23--> 00:15:59

Assyrian when we're only Shabbat, even after Jamelia, fast, fasting and the book of Allah Quran will both intercede for the slave on Yom Yom and then you're going to see, the fast will speak Allah, I will look at greater Allahu Subhana with Allah will enable will give fast and ability to speak. It's not far fetched a lot of things that are not human speak nowadays. So Allah will give it it will enable fast a body just enter three and the past will say a year or be on a road map.

00:16:00--> 00:16:42

I prevented the slave of yours from eating, I stopped him from eating, he never ate food was Jehovah I prevented him from fulfilling his desires during the day or should fear up so accept my my intercession for him. We are going to Quran and the Quran speak as well ALLAH SubhanA Medina will give Quran the book of Allah the ability to speak and it will say, I'll be glad to know oh my god, I stopped you from sleeping in the middle of the night belief for sure fairly fee so accept my intercession for him, for you shall find and both alarms panel dialer will accept the invitation of book both the fast as well as the Quran. These are the two things to do during the day. And there

00:16:42--> 00:16:48

are many other, you know, the Hadith of the messenger, talk about recitation clinical into it.

00:16:49--> 00:17:03

The best a few other ones would teach The Book of Allah and it was within the book of Allah. And there are many, many men Hadees or talk about the virtues of reciting a book of Allah. But brothers and sisters, that's not where we just got this picture.

00:17:05--> 00:17:09

Spiritually, Quran being a spiritual cue for us.

00:17:10--> 00:17:44

It will only the Quran will only be a spiritual tool for us. If we recite the book of Allah in a manner that we are supposed to recite it. There is a way to recite it. There are ethics rules, there are rules that are laws that are regulations that are adapted etiquettes for the recitation of this unique, amazing, unchangeable, unparalleled book of Allah subhanahu the island, there is a method of the recitation of the book of Allah. If we observe these etiquettes these laws and these rules,

00:17:45--> 00:17:52

only then we will see that the Quran is a spiritual cure for us, not just you know, as I said, you could pick up

00:17:53--> 00:18:32

okay, read a few verses, you know, there's a way in method of reading the book of Allah. The other man of action is called as our set of scholars have written books, on the methods and the etiquettes. And the rules of reciting the book of Allah, by for example, a few things I mentioned to you, but for horror too, and I've often been, you know, one of the advocates is a person being physically clean and pure. When he resolves the book of Allah, He is pure pure is not a dirty, filthy state recommended to perform illusion be in the state of ODU in the state of purity, some of the scholars used to say it's recommended to brush your mouth and clean your teeth use the sea walk

00:18:33--> 00:19:08

before wanting to resolve the book of Allah subhanaw taala giving it absolute importance due because remember, this book is not like any other book. This is not how important that we just sit in our bed and you know, write relaxed, you know, shoulders, read the book, this is the these are the words of Allah, there is a way to sit and read as well. There is a math there are rules and Atticus and this, this is something agreed upon. I'm not saying it's haram to read in any other way. But these are etiquettes. There are books written on this topic, Imam unknown to the loved one one of the great scholars, the Jews, and the great hadith of this ummah, the great Shafi scholar, he wrote a

00:19:08--> 00:19:49

whole book in Arabic, which I believe has been translated into English called a Debian they'll be hammered into Quran, the other the etiquettes, in reciting the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And these are some of the things that he mentioned that cleanliness purification for Hara and Nevada and then selecting the right time and selecting the soldiers selecting the right place to read the book and the right time, as a man or woman camera edited, right place in a in an appropriate place in a clean place. masjid, the house of Allah Subhan Allah to Allah is a very good place to read the book of Allah Allahu Masjid. It's permissible everywhere else even until we should read, but it's good

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

facing in the direction of criminals. That's another etiquette in terms of regarding the book of Allah's time with the IRA, and also tight we're looking at time though sorry.

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

That's the place, Montana clean place where you will not be disturbed. That's another etiquette. You know you're at home, the TV's on. And you know, you're reading the book of Allah subhanaw taala or someone's on the internet and doing something that you're just out there reading, okay? Check, check, check some of the sales tomorrow boxing do

00:20:21--> 00:21:02

go back kick back, that page one. That's not the way to read the book of Allah in a in an isolated place where you are fully focused. And then the timing, timing. Once you read the book of Allah, some of the other ones that is highly encouraged. And this is based on the Hadith of the messengers of Allah, send it to read it in the middle of the night, at night reading the book of Allah in Surah, two lane and hungry today you have this young young lady. It's an amazing time a tranquil time to read the book of Allah subhanaw taala dialogue. And also if you can't, you can't downgrade everything. We do each other no one you will have to go work in the morning. Normally on a normal

00:21:02--> 00:21:47

day, it's hysterical. If we if it's not possible at night, then you don't want the best time and every one of us every Muslim should have this habit. This is like a must for every Muslim of us is in the Quran, Octavia Salas and he blew his shins in August of a lady with an infant that established crate ugliness from afternoon when the sun starts moving. Is it do Lucas ships in our house every day until nightfall meaning offer praise God as a mother of Russia. And then Allah says we're earnestly fetch and the Quran which is recited in the sight of Allah is really talking about the fajr prayer stablish Allah as a motivation and pleasure, but to describe pleasure he talked

00:21:47--> 00:22:27

about Quran he said for iron fudge, because the Quran which is recited and heard in salatu version is the probably the most effective for a believer in prayer as well. That's the reason why it's recommended to have lengthy recitation is rather than fudging the word it will foster more than other prayers. Reason being is because it's a tranquil time, it's a peaceful time, you've woken up just in the morning we are fresh, it slightly dark, slightly light in between day and night. It's still it's not completely light, and it's still it's not completely dark as well not completely light, so fresher time what Adam virginica mush goo the inner core URL fudgey can assure that Allah

00:22:27--> 00:22:48

says because the word and that is recited, at the time of pleasure machine, it is well attended by the angels, the angels are well attending that presentation, and in prison, pray and then afterwards your pleasure, we should have this habit, every day after failure, whether at home, or whether you whether in the Western world, I totally

00:22:49--> 00:23:32

take out at least 15 minutes, if not more, if you can't take more than 15 minutes, then just take our 15 minutes of your special busy time, and dedicated exclusively for the world and for the book of Allah subhanaw taala it's an amazing time to read the book of Allah, those of you who have this habit, I don't have to tell you, you know yourself, it's extremely spiritually uplifting in the morning, the spiritual nourishment of the soul that you can gain from reciting the book of Allah in the morning, you can I don't I believe you can't get that any other time in the day. It's just such a unique tranquil time. and Europe, it's just an amazing time for those who read in the morning, you

00:23:32--> 00:23:41

you know, so in the morning, try to read it. It's a very effective way of reading a book on the last panel data. So these are the times

00:23:42--> 00:24:35

the right place right time. And then there are two very important parts to what we call the local learning or the human moment no, we call these two the main two integrals of the recitation of the book of Allah these integrals, these are very important aspects. When we recite the book of Allah, one is that the book and the other is 31st. One TR T. Very important reading the book of Allah with 13 The theory is not hasty, slow, gradual recitation of the book of Allah. Allah says in the Quran, water theme, Quran 13. Recite the book, which has the Quran in a in a calm measured manner, in a in a composed manner, do not haste, what activity parameter theta Allah mentioned 13 toys, emphasis

00:24:35--> 00:24:39

repetition or until parameter theta and this is another

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

command what was his word to say? That you have to read the book of Allah, not in a hasty fashion, ensuring every single letter and every single word is uttered and pronounced in the most appropriate and the most correct of manners and ways with proper observation of the

00:25:00--> 00:25:37

rules of thumb, the coloring of the jury is very important not just eating up the words. Sometimes unfortunately, we some of us, we don't even know how to read the book of Allah. We've lived the life of 50 6070 years, and we've had time for everything, all the degrees and everything we know about the world. One basic thing that we are not able to read a page correctly from this book, which is not written by any person on the road, not written by our friends or parents. This is this these are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala with the correct pronunciation and it's unfortunate, sometimes we feel we see the people through the results. They're making huge mistakes in the recitation of the

00:25:37--> 00:26:17

book of Allah subhanaw taala. Remember, no, he says that older, older modern scholars, they are united on the fact that it's actually a mock rule and dislike to haste. In the recitation of the book of Allah, whether in prayer, or outside prayer, even in prayer, the Imam is you know, instructed on how you know, we had some really hurt some good presentation today in Saudi Arabia. That's the way we need to read the Imam has been instructed not just our attention, but even the whole prayer with Nina for Salah or can you go to Masjid when you have a good setup, you actually want to go and pray that the Imam is reciting the words of Allah in a very collective way, in a very

00:26:17--> 00:26:24

calm manner in a measured manner. The ruku are in the sujood and has been done with former Neela with

00:26:25--> 00:27:02

calmness and composure that is a must in prayer and messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one store like a Arabi a village okay when he prayed so fast and such an offer suddenly for inoculum doesn't repeat and pray because you haven't prayed three times. And then he explained to him how to offer the prayer. So in the evening, Salah, we need to pray in a calm composed manner. I don't know what the case is here is been in some of our communities where people get frustrated and agitated. In the month of Ramadan, it'll be when the Imam has readings really slowly, even 10 minutes. We can't, we can't, we cannot give for the book of Allah subhanaw taala people, and it's like a burden 20 an

00:27:02--> 00:27:09

hour. So most of the places they offer 20, which is, you know, certain a way of reading most of them, what happens is

00:27:10--> 00:27:11


00:27:12--> 00:27:59

Okay, 2014 16 taraweeh, sort of a terrible nation is something that we want to do out of love, not like a burden, not a burden, it's something we should want to be wanting to do for the sake of Allah. If we cannot complete the whole Quran because we get tired or whatever, there is no obligation yet. It's so nice, good, we should complete the whole recitation. But if we cannot, it's not worth it. It's not fulfilled. It's not, you know, something that's already good for you. It's actually better to read and listen to less in a calmly composed manner than just haste and complete the Quran. It's not about quantity, it's about quality. When we recite even in Ramadan, it's about

00:27:59--> 00:28:09

quality, one page in a calm, composed manner is better than five pages reasonable and motivated volley, you know, having some times my

00:28:12--> 00:28:15

God, you know, the next page, but if you do a lot of

00:28:16--> 00:28:37

this, this normal way to read the book of the work was performed to it. So does the monitor been? Well, Muhammad, you've heard of all the words, every single letter is pronounced and uttered in the correct manner that we have been ordered to do. This is a complete command, see what

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


00:28:40--> 00:29:06

what are the verses were actively look for an entertainer. So that's the main integral, I said, there are too many tables. Number two, the second great integral off the recitation of the book of Allah we've talked about, you know, golfer purity or choosing the right time and we talked about choosing the right place. And then we talked about slow, slow, gradual presentation in a calm measured manner.

00:29:07--> 00:29:48

Now, the main in general, is the double D was one main temporal. The other main aspect is the reflection. This is very important, reciting the book of Allah, with with food with reflection with the Quran, the double with understanding with, with who you are with concentration, not that we're reading lines and lines, and we don't know what we really were thinking about something else. We're thinking about the weather outside, and we don't know where we really will be started here. And then we just realized that we've done four pages already. I mean, that's not what that recitation of the Quran will not do as any benefit spiritually. If we want the Quran to be a spiritual benefit to us,

00:29:49--> 00:29:51

then it's we don't bother with reflection.

00:29:52--> 00:29:58

I'll say one thing here that look, there is definitely reward in reciting the book of Allah even without understanding

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


00:30:00--> 00:30:36

Also that I mean, we have two extremes, sometimes within the Muslims, where we have one extreme where people say that, you know, what's the benefit, in some reasonable case, for example, Ronaldo, he doesn't know the Arabic language and he's just reading away. There's no benefit, you know, understand the look at the translation, if we don't know, you know, if you remember the book of Allah is not like any other book, even those who understand it. We read time and time and time again, you will never be bored from this book. Every time you it's not like any any other book. There's no book on the face of the earth and you can read more than three, four times even your most

00:30:36--> 00:30:57

favorite novel or whatever. After six, seven times, boy, you're just totally bored. There's no nothing, nothing in this world, but you can repeatedly reread it and recite. It's the uniqueness and the margins are the miracle of the book of Allah subhanaw taala that we can carry on reading it yet we don't have. So this

00:30:58--> 00:30:59

this one extreme and

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

this one extreme. We find within some people that they think that if you don't understand there's no reward. That's the wrong extreme. That's a wrong understanding incorrect understanding. Allah says in the Quran, who will enter the bathroom Mina Rasul Amin and firstly him yet to look at him if he was a key while you are live who will get up when hikma Allah is the One who sent in Messenger? What are the basic objectives Maha said the jumps and what is the job description of the messenger so Allah in the Senate, he said yet to do either him or Yachty he teaches them the recitation tillow. Okay, without meaning just the recitation itself is an act of reward. And that Allah says he's

00:31:42--> 00:32:10

purifies them and then he says, while you are living will keep them and then he teaches them the meaning. So recitation of the Messenger of Allah teaches the recitation without meaning many teachers are meaningless. So even this one, you know, the Quran didn't have university news or Allah or even said that he said that the one letter you could tell was that he said, Islam you have a different view is not one one word, it's only for harmful, and hurtful remarks have been 10 for editing when somebody reads

00:32:11--> 00:32:28

me. Searching rewards 10 for 10 for love and 10. For me, we will not install anything, there's no meaning for me. This is what we call a part nobody knows the meanings of golf. Hey, I saw how live in the Quran. Taha

00:32:31--> 00:33:09

nobody knows the meaning these are we call it a truth of the Mocha Tara's meanings. It's been cut off, but it's cut off. What do you mean what's cut off? The meaning of this has been cut off from the nobody knows of this meeting whether the messengers of Allah or you suddenly knew of the meetings, there's two opinions amongst the scholars, some scholars that he knew along the last panel with the opinion of the scholars is that even the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not given the knowledge of Bluefin mocha tart. So these, even though there are modes, there's So this clearly shows that our reward, even in reciting the book of Allah without understanding, but

00:33:09--> 00:33:27

the other extreme progresses, and we find because sometimes when, when we put too much focus on that, then people go to the other extreme where people are there who doesn't want to ever even, you know, think about wanting to understand the basic message of the order. That That means reflection,

00:33:28--> 00:34:12

thinking, deliberation, to think about the words to understand the message of the Quran. This book which Allah subhanaw taala has given us a unique book, it's for it's for us, it's not for anyone else. Allah did not send His book to the Christian and the Jews or the Hindus and the Sikhs, and not for the AC atheists. It's for us have we spent a life of 6070 years and we cannot take time out to understand even the meanings of Surah Fatiha, which we recite on a daily basis numerous times. I mean, there are a lot of people, I remember those who have no clue or idea what you know, there are leading in salaam Warzone to find the heartbeat. That's the basic Achilles German responsibility of

00:34:12--> 00:34:55

a Muslim to try to at least understand further further and the few verses of the Quran they recite in our prayer, when we say you can remove standing with vision those two extremely Not that that's it, we just make over we don't want to understand the meanings. That's it, you get the reward. That's another extreme. Allah says in the Quran that kita would answer now. This is a book that we reveal to you in a calmness in the tube, Mubarak would it's full of blessings and then Allah says leave the bow. So this is we reveal to you the book so that they the Muslims, they reflect the noble they reflect and ponder over the verses. As an added bonus for Moses in another place. Don't need to

00:34:55--> 00:35:00

know don't ever reflect on the words of Allah don't reflect and ponder well

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

Over the Quran, Allah FOMO or is there a lock on your house? Allah is asking the question of fidelity the Quran and other moving up further so that Muhammad is another source of fidelity the Quran will carry me around the lady later we tend to feel

00:35:18--> 00:35:48

so that reflection How do you do that? educates because this is the concentration the whole sure that we have when we read the book of Allah subhanaw taala. When a person is understanding when he passes by a verse of Rama, Allah rush man, Allah's mercy and Allah's blessings and Allah is being mentioned. Then stand by it stop for a moment, the one researching should stop for a moment and think about the reading. Think about grammar and let's see, if ALLAH ask Allah to Allah when you're alone, many of

00:35:49--> 00:36:31

us can seek that at the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala seek the pleasure of Allah subhanho data, ask Allah and make darlin. So he came to Allah to give you Jen and Paradijs when Jenna is mentioned, ask Allah to give you Jenna, and then when the person reciting passes by a verse of Adam and punishment, the displeasure of a loss parameter. And again, we need to stop need to think we need to reflect upon that. And then after that, if that punishment is regarding the non Muslims, the disbelievers, then thank Allah again, thank Allah Al Hamdulillah and saved from this evil and if that is regarding the Muslims, is sin, which some Muslims are involved in, then look at yourself, am I involved in

00:36:31--> 00:36:57

this particular sin? If you are not, then again, thank Allah hamdulillah Bolivian candidemia maxsea The one who saved me from this evil from the sin and if you're involved in that sin, then straightaway go and repent and make a full intention at that time that this particular sin that has been mentioned in the Quran right now, I will make a firm intention to resolution that I will not commit the sin again. And you know, seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:36:59--> 00:37:08

And likewise, you know, if you for example, there are so many verses in the Quran, we call it that Allah is addressing us many places where Allah says yeah,

00:37:10--> 00:37:15

yeah, you're living in an urban you want Medina, Amman, all you who believe. So when Allah is saying, Hello,

00:37:16--> 00:37:32

think for a moment of why he's talking to us. I want to say, Oh, you if your name is Mohammed, think Allah is saying, Oh Mohammed, I'm talking to our beloved token to Allah is talking to the believers. So this is the reflection and then stop and then think I can

00:37:33--> 00:38:09

What is Allah say? Okay, oh, Allah, I am here, you know, ready? I'm listening, like some of the scholars used to actually stop there and say, the baker on Saturday. They said, We don't even live in harmony with the Baker of The Masonic Oh, my God, I am here. I am present. Tony, would you have to tell me? And then after that the message that was given, they would look at it? What is the message? What what what is Allah saying? If it's a command that will ensure that they they carry out that if it's a prohibition that will ensure that we stay away from that prohibition? Allah says, for example, you will live in an urban move and noumenon? Or who knows what he or

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

she doesn't live

00:38:13--> 00:38:13


00:38:14--> 00:38:59

Us is all up to you, will you say a favor of us? Certainly, you can always save your own soul and your family's from the fire of hell, the hellfire, whose fuel will be mankind and stones? So think, am I fulfilling this obligation is duty of saving myself on the fire of hell? I'm fulfilling this responsibility of saving my family from the fire and how if you are not, then haste towards correcting that. And if your husband and think about it, that am I looking after my family in terms of not just worldly aspects we need to but many of us are just concerned about looking after our families in a worldly aspect rather than hereafter expect. Am I doing enough to save them from the

00:38:59--> 00:39:29

fire of hell? And it's not just the responsibility of the husband? It's anyone in the family. Sometimes it's the wife was more practicing than the husband. It's her duty as Lord responsibility. Sometimes the children are practicing more than the COVID it's not always the parents or it's not always the man or the husband, anyone looking after your family. But yes, indeed the One who is has authority over others put the camera in school and at the ones below you you have a superior responsibility, you'll be questioned about it. But this particular verse, Allah says yeah,

00:39:31--> 00:39:55

like that allows you for example, your ability now to to do what he told it and know so hard, repent to Allah with sincere repentance. So paste go and repent or loss and God, how many verses connect them all? No, I love the shirt because a shirt that I was in America and he gave a talk at a conference on the Quran and I gave a talk on that and quite often his talk was called in America.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

And he said, I just recently gave a whole one day course on yet

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

Within the Rena avenues of the Quran, all the women in the Quran I don't know how long the full day or the half day whatever, but it caught on yummy Halloween and all the verses in the Quran that starts with a you have to read a miracle you believe, what is the cause you have to type an explanation and commentary on those verses. So. So these are the this is the tougher call. And this is the double. If there's a verse that talks about the previous nations, about stories and history about you know, oh my God and the people of the prophets of you know, like Yusuf and all the other Musa alayhis salam, wa salam, then it's not a story for us as an entertainment, the story of user,

00:40:43--> 00:40:58

okay, it's very entertainment, entertaining, it's not for entertainment. It's we take lessons from, we need to try to understand those stories and take take heed I got from these stories. If you know there are verses that you don't, if you can show the show behind

00:40:59--> 00:41:37

the meanings only known to Allah then the need goes to Allah has power with the IRA. So this is the fourth code of greater temporal reflection, the third code, the love for thinking, and it's good to even repeat verses of the Quran. In terms of reflection, keep a small translation. It's not hard. It's not simple. It's not simple. As I said, this is another extreme where people think that even trying to open a look at some meanings by itself is simple. It's not but indeed do not drink transgress the limits because there are people for every every science scholars are there. It's the Quran to there are complicated verses in the Quran. There are simple verses in the Quran. When Allah

00:41:37--> 00:42:15

says Willapa he has several Quran and we have made the Quran easy lyrically to take nnessee hard to take advice. Basic verses that talk about Allah was around was power. And they talk about Jana and Jana general versus Impala is genuinely mainly Margarita in the sea. That's for everyone to understand, you can pick up if it gets slightly confused, don't understand, go to a scholar, go to your mom go to the shelf. Allah says first victory equal to ask the people of knowledge if you don't understand. But there are definitely other verses which are complicated verse especially if there are approximately 500 verses of law. Those are complicated, you know, that's not for me and people

00:42:15--> 00:42:51

like me or you that we just take off, though we can we can understand them, but for us to start interpreting them and deriving rules and extracting rules from them without any recourse to any student shoe 100 scholars have studied under scholars and scholars all the way to the confines of the messiness of art. And that's not something we should be doing. Because for every science, I mean any book you pick up, whether it's medical science, you have to concede it by itself. But Quran there are others which are simple, like certified, reading in some of the country level of the Army, when we read if we understand the meanings, and it's tougher Quran, double reflection and Pinery. So

00:42:51--> 00:43:25

we read them in stone, and humbly elevate the Imams really were thinking, when I'm thinking about this is the old Schumann prayer. When the Imam is reciting the handle, you learn you are on our way. We are thinking yes, all praise and handle all who would we everything, all praise that exists in this world. Any praise for anyone. Anyone did something good. Someone did something good in Manchester, you Cheeto here. Every praise that there is there in the world. Everything belongs to him. Ultimately, it's through the trophy by the granting of Allah Al hamdu lillahi rabbil

00:43:27--> 00:43:29

aalameen Sometimes you don't even realize the offerings.

00:43:33--> 00:43:49

Finish that's the that's why, you know, automatic solver. You know, we have two types of prayers. One is active lives on our prayer. One is an automatic just going through the motions you've gone into you're pregnant, you can step through it and when you landed, well,

00:43:50--> 00:44:04

that's that's a Salah many of us. We don't even realize that active real life prayer is where the Stafford call is that the Buddhists call? Sure there's concentration this realisation that we are standing before our Creator our load of ox

00:44:05--> 00:44:25

li r Rahmani r Rahim. We think about the rationale for love the Mercy of Allah manicure we do we think about loving the owner the man that the Owner of the Day of Recompense yet and then we're talking to about a year the next year can Stein over it is only you. If we know the meetings a year Coronavirus

00:44:26--> 00:44:52

Allah we it is only you who we worship is only you from whom you seek help and assistance and Louie's inner circle was the angel of guidance not going to take us disclose I've explained this at dinner in a salon dinner restaurant, but not just guide us and show us where the right path is but physically take us and place us on the right right path. salata, Lolita and Anthony Mulligan no movie or equal avoidance all the verses via thinking or reflecting the

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

repetition. Repetition of the verses is quite good. So we understand the meaning. There's a particular verse that's having a deep impact on you

00:45:00--> 00:45:27

Eat a spiritual sense on your heart. So you're repeating it, you're repeating it, say for example, somebody who loves the reverse, you know, is a little Serato study and so you keep losing intimacy a lot of the study is a little solo from studying three four times. That's the quality recitation of the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And it's doing the rest of yourself allow you to repeat this hadith where you know when the messengers of Allah or you were sending one student to relate and he read the verse into I don't know if,

00:45:28--> 00:45:42

when he talks around for India to enter icwsm Hakeem, he kept on reciting that particular verse until morning, just one verse on or you can do is to be kept on repeating into our demo final event, when,

00:45:43--> 00:46:25

as this will keep it's good to try the other Luminova mentions in his book again, one of the etiquettes is was just reciting the book of Allah at the time of recitation of the book of Allah Devaki. Chronicle Books Booker are to cry to shed some tears. You know, that was one of the great scholars of this OMA also, he said, a booker owns the humble garage, it's actually recommended to cry and shed some tears when you read the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is actually based on the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Sunnah Filippo Hutto. He says that if Quran Quran, the Quran Khurana Worldcup This is the Hadith that when you read read Quran and cry

00:46:25--> 00:46:38

for in Telugu for the bank or if you're not able to cry naturally then just try it just it just do it. You know, just make it up. If you can't do it nurturing if you can't credential, get just get some onions and Kleenex.

00:46:40--> 00:46:42

So this is for those people who can't cry naturally.

00:46:44--> 00:47:19

How do you have a messenger some alohar in the center, some of those qualities to talk that conversation with Allah subhanho wa Taala the general rule that all like when Allah says something so you respond, you read surah T, and you come to you know what Allah says, As Allah who can help you alone asking the question, posing the question, and Allah is saying, is it Allah, I cannot help you, me the ruler of all rulers. So it's recommended to say yeah, better indeed. You are the ruler of the rulers, the greatest ruler who committed Shahidi I am one of the witnesses to this fact. At least.

00:47:20--> 00:47:59

At least Allahu Akbar didn't monta isn't Allah capable. Doesn't Allah possess the power, the ability the capability of creating you and resurrecting you after you die? Do you say better among indeed Allah you have the power to resurrect it, and we will be resurrected. Also listening this is just recitation even listening to the book of Allah is greatly rewarding it spiritually it's not just reciting. Reciting has more rewards, but even listening can have a spiritual impact on you recite listening to the book of Allah, sunnah Sunnah of the messenger. Salallahu Alaihe Salam. It's an act of a burglar, an act of

00:48:00--> 00:48:25

reward at the airport. solotaroff Allah says will either return for STEMI our level will ensue when the book of Allah Quran has been recited for Stellung. Listen to attention, unseen to remain quiet. It's actually sinful. And someone who's reading the book of Allah we talk and listen to attentively and do not talk be silent, be quiet. I live with your hand if you want.

00:48:26--> 00:48:40

There's a hadith in Sahih. Muslim, Abdullah who was through the Allahu Anhu once he says the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to me earlier, read the book of Allah to me. So he said, You always know what accrual and income like owns it.

00:48:41--> 00:49:18

How can I read the book to the Quran? When when the Quran has been revealed on to you? Is it my place to read to the messengers of Allah what He said and said in Hebrew and a smart woman lady, I would like to listen to I desire to listen to the book of Allah from someone else, this rewarding listening, so he said, I'm the one who was rude to me. So I started reading similar to yourself. And when I was reading hard to attain to either having either a recited the whole sort of a new sub when I came to the verse that gave her either genomic mapping, Misha hidden was in Africa with a fish Shahida

00:49:19--> 00:49:59

he was reading and he came to this verse, that what what how would it be when we bring from every nation, a witness, and we will bring you as a witness of all of these witnesses at the London I have person when I came to this verse, where he was seven, he said has spoken, it's no contact anymore. First of all, really, I looked at the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but I you know who can refer and his eyes were shedding tears. The companions will be Long Island days to actually town request one another us maybe if we learn as we learn Oh such and such Come on. Let us see some words of words of Allah subhanaw taala

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

I remember it was not just for it, it wasn't for entertainment. It wasn't just it was not just for the good voice or the good sound, indeed, having a good voice sound, it's a side thing. It's good, it's good to earn, you know, we do tune in reciting there are Hadith and folk about reciting the book of Allah in a nice way, definitely, without a doubt, but it's not only that, if there's no other nothing else, you know, some of us we just, it's just like an entertainment. We love the entertainment of the recitation of the book of Allah, you know, and it's just, you know, sound and voice and that said, whether that's the fourth quarter double reflection, we don't care, this

00:50:39--> 00:51:21

recitation and this listening was not for entertainment, it was to take spiritual benefit from the words of Allah was playing with the iron. So if we can't read, we should try to listen in our cars more than the sheets, we should have CDs of Quran, unfortunately, every call is attend, especially, we should try to have the Quran presentation as much as possible. So these are some articles on amending just five minutes, inshallah that was the main area or NP, if we act upon these spiritual, these articles and the rules and all these things that I've talked about, then Quran is will be a cure for spiritual number two and number three, just briefly understand the main one is a spiritual

00:51:21--> 00:51:42

cure. Number two, Quran is a spiritual cure for us in terms of research show for the spiritual Q and Q for the problems of the world societal problems, what are these acute you look at the word of Allah subhanaw taala. All the social problems that we have, we have the problems in the society, whether the problems are

00:51:43--> 00:52:19

at home, whether it's in a society or whether globally, you know, all the conflicts and all troubles and all the friction that we have. I remember a couple years ago, I remember once I gave a talk here, family conflicts, causes and solutions and hamdulillah had a lot of people came to that talk, because it shows that, you know, this is something that is within our communities and societies, we have a lot of family problems, there's no better tool for us. And actually their talk I extended it and you know, the pastoral abundant mindset investor we have this radio on he gave a whole 30 Day Ramadan, every day, an hour or so a course on family disputes, causes and solution. And I went

00:52:19--> 00:52:46

through like 10 causes and 10 solutions from in terms of family disciplines, big global problems, social problems, the Quran is nothing but a pure look just anywhere, just pick up you know, certain verses that talk about global problems, social problems within the house, just pick up one surah of the Quran is enough to solve all our problems. Surah two hoogenraad one so the Quran sort of Federal law says here you have

00:52:47--> 00:52:56

internal confers on benefit in front of you, or you believe when a person or when a sinful person comes to you with some information, some news that in fact again,

00:52:58--> 00:53:33

verify the authenticity of this report. And we'll see we'll only Joe herder because you might do something out of ignorance to someone because people don't know how to delete and then you then you realize and you become regretful of what you did later on this verse if we just act upon anyone's and then somebody comes and tells him she said this or he said this or she said this, he said this verified. And then verse after that Allah says yelling on the unit, I'm going to tell you who Cathy Ramadan. Oh, you believe avoid suspicion. don't suspect people don't cut someone and start suspecting people doing wrong things or sinful things or harmful things. And then the next verse,

00:53:33--> 00:54:14

Allah says, What are they just says don't be a spy, don't go and search and investigate investigating to the lives of the people. What I have compiled the compiler do not backward these are all solutions and cures for this societal problems that we have. And globally as well. Just as the Quran teaches nothing but justice for another school of justice. Our whole deal in Islam is based on justice, or Muslims or notions. Actually, there's a verse in the Quran you know what I think in Surah, Allah says, that whenever the outside know Sudan have been but yet, we have sent the messages messengers with the signs will engender Mahmoud Kitab and we have sent the book with them

00:54:14--> 00:54:59

some of the messenger SallAllahu Allah he will send them was sent with the book on Quran why Allah says Leah Holman Nance who built the whole purpose objective aim goal motive behind sending a messenger with a book is so that the whole of humanity stablished justice as justice in the world our deen revolves around justice in a way that will be added as nothing but justice you know, even though basic are paid off though he we all know how important our freedoms right that is also based on justice shaped his inner circle alumina Alene. It's the greatest of oppression, though he because you know, if we associate partners with Allah, and I say this little love it was the greatest of

00:54:59--> 00:54:59

centuries and

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

such an endeavor you need them

00:55:02--> 00:55:11

that you create associate partners with Allah, whereas Allah is doing is creating you're being unjust to Allah, He creates your usage No, no. Okay, oh my god

00:55:12--> 00:55:38

that's injustice even though he is based in justice, all the problems all oppression will be solved in the world if we take longer to cure for societal problems, global problems. And lastly, as I said, The problem I have said, the first two areas is are the main two errors will occur and is a cue, cure for spiritual diseases, a spiritual cure and cure for the societal

00:55:39--> 00:56:20

clear everybody in distribution just today as well. That last part, or AD is a cue in a physical sense as well. But this is something luminance on the side. Without a doubt, it's documented, it's proven it's in the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but unfortunately our communities we talk about the Quran being cure, or we deal with the Quran being a cure, or if we look at it, or we try to understand the Quran or we want the Quran to be a cue for us. And we probably just take in other cues physically that's it. Someone's ill said, Okay, it's just know it is definitely a cure. I'm not disregarding this fact. But primarily the operands is huge on social

00:56:20--> 00:57:02

world problems, but yes, it is been a lot of volume from physical ailments melodies, that are famous hadith of Serena, Serena recovery from your love Iman, when the companions or went on an expedition they met, they went to a community, a tribe, that leader say you don't own the need of that child at school, convince him and he had a poison or something. So they came to us for a cure. And that Steven I will say there could be a loved one who's an idol cure wrestler to find the solute advantage. Another name for it is sort of the Shafi but actually the 178 is sort of carefree and sort of the shelf here and some other names, but it's a cue. He recently sort of fairly Sharky blue

00:57:02--> 00:57:07

on him roping and he was cured. They came back to the messenger SallAllahu Sallam and informed him

00:57:08--> 00:57:18

and smiled and said how do you know that this was a cure? The Quran there's another Hadith when the messenger SallAllahu Sallam somebody came to us from the llama zero Allah have a throat infection So originally

00:57:19--> 00:57:34

it is a cure we are done. I mean, there's a reason why he was so loved why you select before returning to bet he would recite them although they take when I was living up in Florida when I was a bit of a nurse to that service of the Quran blows hands and wipe his whole body. This is a sunnah of the lesson.

00:57:35--> 00:57:52

So Quran without doubt is a cue for spirit and so you have physical managers as well, but primarily before seems to be a cure for physical maladies. He has a cure aspersion diseases, and it's a cure for the problems on the society as a whole
