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

Bismillah salatu wa salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He also has married to mama dad. So Teddy is one of the favorite soldiers of mine in the Quran. It's a surah that is the first of the most of the hot you remember I talked to you about the Mr. behat before. The reason I'm putting this lecture up first, and we're starting our journey into Ramadan with the lecture on certain headings. Even though, if you remember, the plan for memorization was jumaan off your code into 162 63 and 64. So to add surah number 57, it wasn't part of the memorization plan, I still want you to listen to this particular does have sort of studied before going into the journey of listening to the rules and the

00:00:35--> 00:01:11

lectures and the explanations of the other sources. Because this surah is the mother of all demos that we had, it is the major Muslim surah it's longer, and I haven't done that verse of the whole thing in this recording, it's just the first part but I think it's enough to get you in the right mindset. And as a matter of fact, if you listen to this, inshallah, not only will you have the motivation, you know, and even giving this does gave me motivation to memorize more Quran and Ramadan. So inshallah it will give you motivation. And second of all, while you're listening to it, the days that you're going to listen to it, 123 days, whatever however long it takes. At the same

00:01:11--> 00:01:44

time, you should start memorizing total Juma. So tomonaga can you start memorizing those so you don't even if you don't memorize this surah get into those solos because that's the plan you get a little bit of a head start, but content wise and lesson wise, I wanted to start with SoCal Hadid because again, it sets the right tone, and inshallah Tada, it'll give us the right motivation to really, really make the most of this blessed month. So I hope you enjoy this does, please listen to it carefully. Don't take any notes. Just sit there and listen with concentration, but turn your phone's off. Don't look look at other stuff. Just sit there and listen, give it full full

00:01:44--> 00:01:49

concentration and inshallah tada you'll benefit tremendously. barakallahu li walakum wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:03:25--> 00:03:31

hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah say the MBR even though he was

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

from Ahmedabad, Samadhi amatola mercato

00:03:37--> 00:04:19

hamdulillah I'd like to first start by congratulating the many of you that were in this struggle with me for the last 10 nights allows you to put Baraka in all of the time that you spent here and help you see the fruits of that in this world. And in the next world. I pray that allows xojo rewards you for all the minutes and seconds you spent away from home driving here spending time here fighting your sleep here during class, finding your sleep on your commute back and every second of that towards a bother only for him. Because all of this, nobody did this because Arabic grammar was fun. It's because you wanted to get closer to the last word and was one of those who appreciates. So

00:04:19--> 00:04:27

Allah azza wa jal acknowledges that that effort in all of us, and we will reward us in ways we can even expect in this world and in the next. Now.

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

In my conclusion, typically I gave a talk, and it's been the same talk for 10 years, I give the same exact dubs for 10 years at the end of a 10 day class except this one. This is possibly the last time I'm teaching this class. And so possibly, that's why I had it recorded. And I will give you some part of the dust I typically give at the end. But I want to spend more time actually sharing with you some items on that hopefully will serve as a reflection for myself and for all of you

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

really put things in perspective.

00:05:03--> 00:05:44

There are two kinds of requirements for understanding the Quran. There are two kinds of requirements have been I would even say understanding let's just say benefiting from the Quran there are two kinds of requirements. The first kind of requirements, you can call them academic learning the Arabic language is an academic requirement. Under studying Tafseer is an academic requirement. Understanding the linguistic analysis and the tradition and all of that all of these are academic requirements, they require you to study anything that requires you to study becomes an academic requirement. But more important than the academic requirements, there are certain psychological

00:05:44--> 00:05:52

requirements. I mean, if you don't want to use the word psychological, you can even call them spiritual requirements for benefiting from the Quran.

00:05:53--> 00:06:31

And those are the harder ones. As a matter of fact, somebody who's intelligent can learn the Arabic language in no time, they can study to see it in no time, memorize even in no time, and understand and know a lot about a less book and very little time. But the psychological requirements, the the attitude requirements, and really benefiting from benefiting from the Quran, they are a lifelong struggle. They are something that you can meet at one point in your life and lose at a later point in your life. They are not something you get to keep, they are something you have to fight to maintain, and you have to more than anything else, you have to fight yourself, I have to fight

00:06:31--> 00:07:05

myself to maintain those requirements. I can tell you that 10 years ago, I knew a lot less about the Quran. As the days and the months and the years went by, I knew more and more and more about the Quran. And even though in the grand scheme of things, I still know very little about the Quran, those original requirements that are psychological in nature, I still have to struggle with those every day. I have to struggle with those. It's not like I graduated and I met those requirements, like you know, you take prerequisites in college, you meet the prerequisite, and that's it, you don't have to go back to it anymore. It's not the case with

00:07:06--> 00:07:45

these these requirements. They are they're of a different nature. And the first of those requirements is understanding and reminding oneself every single time Why am I learning this? Why am I reading to see it? Why am I learning Arabic? Why am I memorizing these IOD? What is the point of all of this, the intention behind all of this? And all of you know the cliche answer and the cliche answer is, this is so I can have guidance. This is so I can have guidance. That's it. You know, Quran is guidance, we study it for guidance. But that term is used so often that we actually don't understand what that really means. What does it mean that I'm asking a lot for guidance. What that

00:07:45--> 00:07:53

means is that on a given day, every single moment of my day, I will be presented with choices? Should I stay in bed? Or should I wake up?

00:07:54--> 00:08:35

Should I look there? Or should I look down? Should I talk back? Or should I stay quiet? Should I earn my money this way? Or should I find another job? Should I pursue this? Or should I leave those friends? Should I hang out with them? Or should I not hang out? Should I respond back to the text message or not? choices all the time, every second of the day, you and I are going to be faced with choices. When we ask Allah for guidance, we are asking Allah for the strength to make the right choices, that Allah empowers us because of his word to make the right choices. guidance of the Quran, that's what that means. That's what that means. And I tell you when you are ready, and you're

00:08:35--> 00:09:12

strong enough to make the right choice, like for example, I'll tell you an example. There's many sisters, for example, I'm not picking on sisters, relax, Okay, come down. But sister came up to me and said I, you know, I want to wear the hijab, but I can't, I'm not ready yet. And I said, you have to tell me what that means. I'm trying to understand what does it mean, when you say, you're not ready yet. I'm not belittling your concern, I just want to understand. And she said something like, I feel like I'm not a good enough person. And if you wear hijab, everybody thinks you're a good person. And I don't want to give the impression that I'm such a righteous person, I want to be who I

00:09:12--> 00:09:31

really am. So when I'm a better person than I'm gonna wear it. And I said there is not going to ever come a day in your life, that you will wake up and look in the mirror and say, Hey, I'm a good person today. Finally, I've been waiting all this time to become a better person. Because that would mean you're self righteous and self righteous people are the worst kinds of people.

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

You and I will never be good enough. We're never going to be good enough to be alone. You still have to do it. If you're convinced it's something you have to do, you can't put it off. Why am I bringing this up now? Because guidance. If you accept this book has guidance, if I accept this book as guidance, you know what that necessarily means? That necessarily means I'm going to have to change the way I make my choices. I am used to making bad choices.

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

used to it. I just do it all the time. I don't even think twice about it. I even start telling myself what shaitan keeps telling me, I start telling myself, what's the big deal? You're messed up anyway, but at least you do some other good things. Your good deeds should compensate for these bad things. Just do it. It's okay. Don't worry about it. Why? Why are you so hard on yourself? Or the shaitaan comes and tells you you're messed up anyway, might as well just go you know, die partying. I mean, you're gonna burn anyway. So might as well live it up for the little time you have left. And you start telling yourself that shaitaan tells you that enough times that he leaves you on autopilot

00:10:37--> 00:11:17

and now you can tell yourself, he's not even doing what's up to you anymore, you are enough to do was was it herself. That's what happens to some people. That is why we have to recite the Quran, and reflect on the Koran regularly to fight those temptations to fight those inclinations to fight fight those voices inside us that lead us to failure that lead me to failure and lead you to fear failure. And it doesn't matter if you're a student of knowledge. It doesn't matter if you're a scholar, a teacher, a student, an expert and know that novice doesn't matter. This will happen to all of us. This is going to happen to all of us, the size of Europe, the color of your hijab doesn't matter the

00:11:17--> 00:11:45

size of your beard doesn't matter. Your age doesn't matter. shaitaan will not spare any of us, He will come and a lot offers us His protection. We recite Koran and we say ooh Billahi min ash shaytani r Rajim for either corrupt or amphastar is below him in a shaytani r rajim. You're gonna recite Quran sigalas refuge from shaytaan two reasons for that one, if you don't seek refuge of Allah of Allah from shaitan while you're reciting Quran, he will mess up your reading of the Quran. He will

00:11:46--> 00:12:25

distract you you won't get the benefit you need to get to. One of the reasons you should recite the Quran is to get protection against shavon it is why Allah gave you this book is why Allah gave us this book, the actual engagement I've said this in several talks but I don't get tired of telling myself even if you don't have it, you've heard it 20 times and you're tired of it, I don't get tired of it. The actual relationship I have with the Quran is not when I'm listening to a lecture is not when I'm you know when I'm memorizing You know, when the actual relationship I have with the Quran happens when I'm standing in salaat and reciting it when I'm sending in salaat. And I'm listening to

00:12:25--> 00:12:33

it being recited the relationship we have with the Quran happens five times a day at least. That is if somebody salaat is good, the Koran is good.

00:12:35--> 00:13:13

And if somebody is not engaging with the Quran in their salaat, and their relationship with the Quran is entirely artificial, it means nothing. It is an entirely academic exercise and a superficial exercise. Real put on happens in slot. Everything I learn everything you learn about this book, whether it's the read or its language, or it's the seed or memorizing it's IOD, all of it boils down to I will have a better slot, I will have better slot if I will not have better slot. All of this is in vain. none of it matters. Because slot is efficiently when you stop talking to everybody else. And I started talking to Allah.

00:13:14--> 00:13:44

And I started talking to Allah in words that he taught me that he taught you. That's the conversation. That's the conversation that matters. Nothing else in life. Everything else in life is in vain. If this isn't in place, now I want to share with you some art and I'm going to be brief with some and detailed in some others. Originally, when I thought about what am I going to talk to you guys about today, I was thinking about the 16th I have the solar skeleton handy. But I figured I start from the beginning and I end at 16 and Sharma hopefully we can finish that in time.

00:13:45--> 00:13:55

And this solar This is another nice solar by most accounts of the Sahaba. It was already four years in Medina when this solar came down. So hydro happened four years ago.

00:13:56--> 00:14:05

The Muslims have gone through a lot in these four years. And one of the problems they've experienced is that overall there's been this becoming a problem and motivation.

00:14:06--> 00:14:21

The man is not what it used to be. And a lot of xojo notices that there are some weak elements in the Muslim community. Even among the you know, there's some who just became Muslim, they don't realize what they've gotten themselves into. There are some who are suffering from the disease of hypocrisy

00:14:23--> 00:14:26

among the ranks of the Sahaba there is not somebody who has a label on their forehead on

00:14:28--> 00:14:59

their inside that community and that's a problem. But Allah dresses all of them together. what's beautiful about this surah even though it is Madani, even though it is Madani six is part of this surah sound completely mucky for six IOD sound like they're mocking Quran Subhan Allah Hema for sumati. One of the one who realizes Hakeem everything in the skies in the earth declares unless perfection. He's the ultimate authority. He's the one full of wisdom, the IOD this this is introducing us to a lot

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

You will think the IR can introduce humanity to allow what happened in McKee Khurana, Ron

00:15:06--> 00:15:12

McKeever. On next iarla human Kusama watch, he will have an IRA full Muslim.

00:15:13--> 00:15:37

The Muslim doesn't know already. The homolka savato he owns RV. He owns the kingdom of the skies and the earth. You're here when you meet he gives life and he gives us well, who are the conditions encoded? And he's in complete control over everything, Muslims, and fourth year after hyjal I don't know this, they know this already or no. They know this already. This is not meeting a sign an academic prerequisite.

00:15:38--> 00:15:58

These ions are not there to fulfill an academic prerequisite. The Muslims are not going to learn something new in these ions that they don't already know. They already know Subhanallah Hema is similar to what they already know who was as usual, Hakeem, they already know the homolka sumati Well, they already know you he will you need. They already know what.

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

Two thirds of the Quran is murky. Most of murky Quran is about a man and Allah describes Allah. It talks about a laws IOD it talks about Allah as attributes or less names. And this is mothering for en and Allah is giving the Muslims of football and football begins like this, who has a one

00:16:18--> 00:16:44

to one button. He's the first and the last, the most obvious and the most hidden, well who will be Konishi in it. And he is knowledgeable of all things. He knows everything. And he always knows that and he's always known it and there is not a thing he doesn't know what whether the Holocaust sumati was artificiality. He created the skies in the earth in seven in six days. So Musto, then he rose upon or balanced and out the throne.

00:16:45--> 00:16:53

He allamani you fell out? He knows what goes into the earth. What do you mean Hmm, and what comes out of the earth?

00:16:54--> 00:16:57

These are IRA that you would think a lot would give to kadesh.

00:16:58--> 00:17:18

They don't think about the creation of Allah, they don't think about the sky, they don't think about the earth. The Muslim already knows all of this, I told you, but Allah is making me and making you think about this again. So let's start over. Let's start over. And let's start over this time knowing that Allah knowing that we are Muslim is still telling us this

00:17:19--> 00:17:27

Subhan Allah Hema for some allottee everything in the sky declares a less perfection in parentheses. What is wrong with you?

00:17:28--> 00:17:30

What happened to your destiny?

00:17:31--> 00:17:37

Well, who will Aziz he's the ultimate authority. How can my authority is not enough that you don't respect it?

00:17:38--> 00:17:45

And Hakeem is full of wisdom, why don't you trust that the things I'm telling you to do? What good for you? Why don't you have any confidence in my wisdom?

00:17:47--> 00:17:54

He says the human Kasama was even on the kingdom of the skies and the earth belongs to him. Why are you afraid of your enemy?

00:17:55--> 00:18:06

Why are you afraid they have something they have a weapon in their hand, they have money in their hand, they have power in their hand that will somehow harm you. There is nothing in the skies in the earth that is outside of my kingdom.

00:18:08--> 00:18:25

All of the battle between truth and falsehood is happening inside a less kingdom. And inside my kingdom. What do you have to fear someone else for? Why are you afraid of anyone else? No. Who? mukha sumati? What are you afraid of dying? He says up when you meet he gives life he gives death?

00:18:26--> 00:18:43

Why are you worried about life and death? He will give it He will take because it's not yours to keep? I don't usually call it my life. I want to live my life. Who says it's yours? Where'd you get mine from? People say My hand hurts is your hand. Well, how would you pay for it?

00:18:44--> 00:18:45

Where'd you get it from Amazon?

00:18:47--> 00:19:06

Where'd you get your hand from my life? My hand, my car, my house? What's mine? He gives life. He gives that? He's given you this opportunity. And he will take this opportunity. Well, who are that couldn't be Shane Cody. No, no, no, he wouldn't do that. No, he can do anything. He's in control of all things. But who are the coalition colleagues?

00:19:07--> 00:19:08

Who will outward Well,

00:19:10--> 00:19:41

he's the first and the last. And this has many interpretations. But at the personal level, the first priority the first thought in your day should be what? A lot. The last thing you leave this world with the last thing you do before you go to sleep. You think about your master. What did I do for you, my master today? Me this insignificant creature. What did I do today for you? I'm going to this bed and I'm going to sleep and I don't know if I'll wake up again. And I don't know if I have to stand in front of you after I before I wake up I might have to stand in front of you.

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

My first and my last thought well why hidden well Barton and he is so obvious. He is so obvious allies in the unseen How is he calling himself a liar the ultimately obvious the one who believes they see they see a line everything

00:20:00--> 00:20:28

See a line the sunshine allows work. They see a line his work. They see a line is creation, this yellow line is planning well is why it is always, sometimes really annoying things happen to you. really annoying things when you get stuck in traffic on your way to Arabic last 45 minutes late, you're upset? like is that? Was that part of a loss plan? Yes. Because you need to learn some more than you need to learn Arabic some days.

00:20:30--> 00:20:34

So he's going to teach it to you. If that means he has to make you lose your keys and make you lose your keys.

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

As part of his plan is helping you control your temper,

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

helping you learn to learn to rely on him.

00:20:43--> 00:20:58

Sometimes we make you pass a test and tells me you fail the test. So you learn to understand where success and failure comes from. Oh boy, what about and he's ultimately hidden you you think everything is happening around you. You don't see a lot. He's the ultimately hidden, hidden he's the university's best kept secret

00:20:59--> 00:21:30

allows origin and at the same time his work is the most obvious makes him the most obvious. One who will be cliche in early men he knows all things has nothing he just because you don't see a lot of them he he doesn't know what's going on. Or who will be equally shame on him. Who under the halaqa senility when he said that he must have had an arch. He created the skies in the earth in six days, and a display of his power. Then he rose upon the throne. The options described in Arabic literature for the throne of a king.

00:21:31--> 00:21:45

When Allah describes that he's on the throne that makes him the king that makes us the subjects it's supposed to. The more you describe the greatness of Allah the more described it's inserted me humility, that should instill humility inside me and harsh

00:21:46--> 00:22:33

to fill out and his his options were up so high, above seven heavens, above seven heavens and in the very next day he says he knows what goes into the earth. Very next column. That's the lowest you can be allowed. This is why this world is called an Hayato dunya the lowest life he from his highest throne knows what is going into the lowest place the earth. Well my Yakubu mainhand what comes out of it? Well, my Youngji Lumina sama and what comes down from the sky he knows what my yard up here and what rises up to the sky. He knows well, who America my inner mountain. He is with you. Who American he is with you at Noma, quantum wherever you may find yourselves. wherever you may be. You

00:22:33--> 00:22:41

are not alone. He's with you. Who American NMR quantum has Mariya his company is there. He's watching.

00:22:42--> 00:22:56

He's protecting. He's observing. He's testing constantly. I'm never alone. I'm not alone in a hotel room. I'm not alone on campus. I'm not alone in the car. I'm not alone. we're never alone.

00:22:57--> 00:23:06

You know, the these you know people that want to look for alien life in the universe. Are we alone in the universe? We have the answer. We're not alone.

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

we're never alone. We were never alone.

00:23:11--> 00:23:19

And actually, we ourselves are aliens. We were sent on this earth. We're not from this earth. So if you're looking for alien life, look at each other.

00:23:21--> 00:23:28

Every one of you. part of you is alien. It came from the sky and Angel delivered into your mother's belly.

00:23:30--> 00:23:41

right we're not from this world. We're part of us is part of us grew from from the earth. And part and even that started with our father other mother, his son who was himself sent down from Ghana.

00:23:42--> 00:24:15

He was himself sent down from Ghana. He knows what goes into the earth. He knows what will come out of the earth. He knows what comes from the sky and what goes up into the sky. He's with you who are American in American tombola if we just understood this one ayah one if one is not even a whole as a part of an ayah Who am I come in Mr. Quantum? He is with you wherever you are. The way I speak with change. The website's eyebrows will change. The phone numbers I dial will change and everything will change. Everything about me will change. Do people act differently when they're bosses in the room?

00:24:17--> 00:24:20

Do people act differently when they see a police car on the highway on the side?

00:24:22--> 00:24:27

They do know they do people act differently when they know there's a camera on the tree streetlight or the stop sign.

00:24:29--> 00:24:31

They do Don't they automatic taco

00:24:32--> 00:24:45

automatic son, you recognize the presence of a higher power and you changes your behavior. If we internalized well I can confirm there wouldn't necessarily be a change in my behavior.

00:24:46--> 00:24:57

There would be and if it's not happening, maybe I don't really understand what this means yet. Maybe it's all up in my head. It hasn't entered my heart what it means he's with you wherever you are, who America in America.

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

Then though I want to tell you some

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

Think about the word Mara. Such a beautiful word that ally chose,

00:25:05--> 00:25:13

you know to say that he someone is with someone. There are multiple ways of saying that someone next to me could be who I began to become.

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

Who are Sahaba?

Well, why twice? What does somebody say something twice?

00:26:21--> 00:26:24

You know, your father is yelling at you. He says I'm your father.

00:26:27--> 00:26:28

I'm your father.

00:26:29--> 00:26:40

What does that mean? Why would he say twice? You're not listening. He didn't show respect. He has to say twice. Then your mother says listen to him. Who's your father?

00:26:41--> 00:27:01

Three times a Versace. Why is not getting in your head. You don't show respect. Allah is talking to those who listened to these ions and it doesn't go in their head. And he says, were you listening? He owns the kingdom of the skies in the earth. Did you hear that? I'll say it again for you know who mukha sumati. When,

00:27:18--> 00:27:46

use your inner Kandahar. Now when you realize all the things I do will go back to a lot very next time. He says he makes the night go into the day when you live in the heart of Elaine and he makes the day go into the night. Why does he mention night and day? Because if you understood that every one of your deeds will go back to Allah your day will change on your night will change. And every time a night is going into the day you will say Allah What have I done today? And every time a day is turning into an idea Allah, what am I going to do this morning

00:27:47--> 00:27:57

in your days and nights will change. It will change and he's the one who's making everyday go into every night giving you a sense of urgency giving me a sense of urgency.

00:27:58--> 00:28:28

Well, who are the Mombasa to sudo. And he has full knowledge of what's going on deep inside the chest. What the full nature of the chest what you got inside you, the temptations you have the evil thoughts you have the things you want to say but you don't say but they're in your head. You know, all there was was associaton that come in your head. Oh man, if we even knew what each other's evil for evil thoughts were we would, we would run from each other like we've never seen a more evil person. And Allah says, I know you on the inside.

00:28:29--> 00:28:52

Even be that is so rude. We come in front of each other and we dress nicely. We speak nicely, we act our best we have a social contract to engage with each other in a civil fashion. But you know what? Allah knows. Take all those layers of social norms norms off and all the formalities away. Allah knows who you really, really, really are.

00:28:53--> 00:29:21

I mean, even your wife doesn't know who you really are. Your husband doesn't know who you really are. There is a part of we know each other husband and wife know each other more than anybody else. Usually, mother and child know each other know more than anybody else. But even they are surprised to find out sometimes, that's who you are. Unless I know who you really are. You can't show me a resume to impress me your credentials and what other people like about you, you're not going to be able to give me that because I know how fake it is.

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

I know what you really are.

00:29:24--> 00:29:34

We have to you know if we're really going to have a relationship with Allah, if I'm going to have a relationship with Allah, please remember these words. Please remember them. This is very important.

00:29:35--> 00:29:42

People might have a good opinion of you. And people might have a bad opinion of you. None of that means anything to Allah.

00:29:44--> 00:29:50

Allows opinion of you has nothing to do with people's opinion of you. If people think you're great.

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

That is no guarantee that a lot of things. You're great. None None. You're kidding yourself.

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

If people think you're terrible, you're going to help. You're evil. That is no guarantee Allah thinks you're evil.

00:30:09--> 00:30:12

You might still have have a muscle has love for you.

00:30:13--> 00:30:17

what people think of me and what people think of you means nothing

00:30:18--> 00:30:19

with a law.

00:30:21--> 00:30:26

When people praise us and people condemn us, we don't let that make us think, oh, that's how Allah thinks of me.

00:30:29--> 00:30:49

On the one hand, a person becomes delusional, because people's praise makes them think they must be praiseworthy with Allah. They become delusional hypocrisy sets in self righteousness sets in and they lose all ranking with Allah. Then all they get is dunya and people's praise and they come in front of the line Allah says, You got what you were working for. You got nothing with me.

00:30:50--> 00:31:01

And on the other hand, you have people that may be trying to do good, but others judge them and you know, pass verdicts on them and they start seeing Yeah, I must people think I'm messed up. I must be messed up.

00:31:02--> 00:31:12

Who told you you're messed up a lot? No. A lot didn't give up on you. You gave up on yourself and you come in front of a lot. Yeah, like everybody thought I was messed up. And Allah has a right to tell you. I didn't judge you.

00:31:13--> 00:31:17

People judge you. I kept the doors open for you.

00:31:18--> 00:31:20

I have the invitation of why'd you give up on me?

00:31:21--> 00:31:23

Don't blame people blame yourself.

00:31:24--> 00:31:37

So this this is the relationship we have to have? Well, who I leave won't be that. He knows the nature of the chest. The bottom line of that is he knows who I really am. He knows who you really are. No one will know me better.

00:31:38--> 00:31:48

No one will know me better. Nobody will people complain sometimes nobody understands me. My husband doesn't understand me. My wife doesn't understand me. My parents don't understand me.

00:31:50--> 00:31:55

Nobody even if nobody understand you know one thing understands you and me very very well.

00:31:57--> 00:32:01

These are the six I art at the beginning of the surah all of them are about Allah

can immunol mukajee it is shocking. Mahesh it's shocking. And they have e ir to heart and Muslim.

00:32:19--> 00:32:20

These are other talking to the Muslim

00:32:21--> 00:33:01

and a Muslim is being told believe in a line as messenger. Why is he being told that you're the man has gotten so rusty that you need to be introduced to a lot all over again. And now that you have bring bring your Shahada again, revive your mind again become Muslim all over again? You need to start over? Because this is what he is saying. Somebody might say I already believe in aligners messenger is done. No apparently not. Maybe it's all on your tongue. But these are about the heart believing a lie in his messenger revive your faith in Allah. rethink your relationship with Allah. relive that relationship with Allah and His Messenger while unfaithful and this time spend the

He says I have given you health temporarily I have given you money temporarily. I have given you strength and intellect and opportunity to get an education and a house and car and job temporarily. Now give me from it.

00:33:36--> 00:34:08

I have given you ability give me from it. I've given you talent, give me from it. What are you going to spend for me? Because I'm telling you those things I've given you were only temporary to see how much of it are you willing to give me back?

00:34:09--> 00:34:14

He says well, Monaco listen to these ions mmamoloko What is wrong with you?

00:34:15--> 00:34:21

case you could have a canal Lil Muslim Houser was saying this to a Muslim. What is wrong with you?

00:34:22--> 00:34:59

Not Amina villa. You believe in Allah. Allah soon and you don't believe in the messenger Rasulullah only told me Nobody can actually. And the messenger in fact is calling you He's inviting you. So you actually believe in your hub. You actually have faith in your master Allah azza wa jal in these artists making a distinction that every Muslim should know and never forget. There is a kind of faith Eamon that I assume you have and you assume I have but that is again me judging you and you judging me, but there is no one inside of me either.

00:35:00--> 00:35:11

It's there or it's not there. And the only one who knows if it's really there or not, is Allah and Allah is complaining your tongue says eemaan. Everybody says salam to use a Voluma salam, why don't I see him on in you?

00:35:13--> 00:35:46

The messenger is calling you to really have him on. He taught me noburo becoming your master. Why don't I see the fruits of that faith? Where is that man? Why is it so artificial in you look at the Academy, Chaka Khan. And he's already taken taken the agreement from you. I mean, he took an agreement from all of humanity. But he took an agreement above and beyond that from the Muslim when every Muslim said La ilaha illAllah was in agreement. Whenever Muslim said Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu. was in agreement with Allah. How can you make that agreement? And you don't? I don't see him on in you. Don't see that driving you to change?

00:35:47--> 00:35:59

What is what's what's wrong with you? There's something wrong with you. Mr. Kuhn. These words are very scary. When a law tells a Muslim What is wrong with you. It's pretty scary, you know,

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

in quantum Meaning, if in fact, you are believers, what an ending of an ayah What is wrong with you, you don't believe the contracts already been taken if you're believers? In other words, it seems at this point, you have deteriorated to the point where even your mind is subject to question. I don't know if you are believers anymore or not in control, meaning, if in fact you are believers, who will lead the unison voila, V. In v. Not. I somebody says, Allah said I don't have him on.

00:36:32--> 00:37:20

He said, If by how come I don't see him on you? How will I get the semen? Allah answers the question in the next day? He said, He's the one who sends upon his sleeve, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I attend but you nothing clear, miraculous revelations, clear, miraculous signs. Go on. He sends upon his slave. These ions that make a mind clear that clear the clutter in your heart that open you up lidocaine and what does he say that for? Lucretia manabu Mattila? No, so he can bring you out of darkness into light. These are also very scary. You know why? When Latina cafaro Olia Mota hold your fridge una homina Nuri in a Walmart and Karen Franco, who's in the darkness coffee.

00:37:21--> 00:37:31

And then Allah brings the gaffer into light and he becomes a Muslim in these ayatollahs so he can bring you out of darkness into light. You here is Muslims.

00:37:32--> 00:37:45

So the Muslims are in darkness, in the art of social capital was in darkness. In the eyes of God, the Muslim is in darkness. He's in shades of darkness. The darkness of a Muslim is hypocrisy. They

00:37:46--> 00:37:54

don't fully man weakness of Eman. Allah says I sent IR not only to get non Muslims to become Muslim, but for Muslims to become movement

00:37:55--> 00:38:19

for weak Muslims to become real movement. That's why I gave you these ions. The nucleus accumbens, camino boo Mati in a new we're in. We're in the La hobbico Rahim, Allah in your case has always been compassionate. And he's always carrying the show of his care and compassion is this Koran. Somebody says, I have wiki man, you must have a weak relationship with the Quran to have Wikimania.

00:38:20--> 00:38:39

Allah gave us this column so it can keep our mind fresh. Keep our minds strong. The most valuable treasure we have is human and our hearts. I mean, if we have the mind in our hearts, then everything else can go on. We're okay. And if we don't have the mind, in our hearts, you can have everything in your hand and nothing is okay.

00:38:40--> 00:39:17

We're gonna go in front of a law bankrupt, the clothes will not be with us. The money will not be with us. The children won't be with us. The savings won't be with us, the house won't be with us, the car won't be with us. The only thing that will be should we be able to show others worth anything. He says in a lobby convincing him the exception is only the one who comes to a law with a healthy heart, a heart that's got the man inside it. Bring me that, oh, give me anything else. There's nothing else that's worth anything. And then he says in the Quran, these they are there so you can have him on. Because I care about you, because I know how rusty human can get.

00:39:18--> 00:39:30

That's why I gave you this book. And then I give you a unnecessary exercise every single day in which you can go back to this book and clean your heart again and again and again. And again. salaat

Will you let me off somehow it went out. And Allah owns the inheritance of the skies and the earth Mira inheritance previously he mentioned Luke kingdom. Now he mentions inheritance. When does somebody get inheritance folks?

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

You tell me

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

When someone dies, and the conversation of mirar comes up when someone is old,

00:40:06--> 00:40:16

you don't talk about the loss of a five year old. You don't talk about the inheritance of a 20 year old. But when does the conversation come up mostly 90 year old 100 year old,

00:40:17--> 00:40:43

we should think about the world. You understand when someone is close to death, one of the conversations that come up is what? Mila Allah says Allah is the owner of the inheritance of the skies and the earth. What is the lesson, the skies and the earth are close to death. The last messenger has come. Now final book has come. The only major event left now is judgment a.

00:40:44--> 00:41:09

The This is the time to bring up inheritance. And the only one who will inherit this entire universe is a love, you'll be left behind someone dies, somebody else takes ownership, someone else dies, someone else takes ownership when everything dies, who will take ownership. Paloma when he left me last summer it went out. Now you still remain calm. Young people in the audience listen to this lifestyle even come unfuck common koblin for

Equal equal to who those who fought after

00:41:28--> 00:41:51

those who came after those who struggle for Islam, those who live up to the requirements of their own faith and then become flag bearers of Islam in their time. Even though all around them is covered, even though all around them as COVID Allah says those are special people. They are not equal to those who work for Islam and lived Islam when times were convenient.

00:41:52--> 00:42:26

I like these people they lived in fitna and fought it. They lived in fifth time for they're not equal to those who who lived in convenient time when Islam was victorious. everybody around you was Muslim, the Iran could be heard from your house. You didn't you didn't know what haram was because it wasn't available anywhere. You'd never have to check the ingredients on the side of a food food item shows that there you didn't know what beer was. You don't know what that is. You didn't know that that existed. You know? You don't know what a concert was. These fitna didn't exist. Everything was good. And people say man, I gotta go somewhere where there is no fitna and Allah says people who

00:42:26--> 00:42:34

stayed through the fitna and still spent spent before victory came in

00:42:36--> 00:42:38

and fought for victory came those are special without

00:42:40--> 00:42:41

00:42:50--> 00:43:24

nakulan time for everybody allies promised the very, very best. He has promised everyone the very best but in the eye, Allah didn't indicate that he has a special place for Muslims who live in difficult times, and then spend and when I say spend, I don't mean just money. I mean time. I mean priority. I mean weekends. I mean weeknights, I mean early mornings. Okay, I understand you're at work. I got it. I know you got a couple of hours of commute. How do you spend your commute? How do you spend your night? How late Are you up?

Monza Lizzie you credo la Camden Hassan

00:44:12--> 00:44:34

the is translated who anyone out there who give a love good loan, open ended loan. There's a few things to understand here. When you ask who will give you say many levy you create the law carbon. Actually you don't even say carbon you say money levy you crypto law who will give a lot alone the ISS men then levy your credit

00:44:35--> 00:44:37

means anyone out there

00:44:38--> 00:44:59

anybody? Do I see anyone that is willing to rise to give a low loan. Now Allah already described in six iaat and then on top of that, after that he owns the entire universe, the entire universe universe will be inherited by him. There is nothing in existence that is not his own property. And yet

00:45:00--> 00:45:13

Now he says, Give me a loan loan is given by to someone who doesn't own something. A lot already told us in this era, he owns everything. Why is he asking for a loan? Why you have to understand this is a matter of integrity,

00:45:14--> 00:45:20

integrity. In order to help you understand this, I'll give you an example. It's going to hurt.

00:45:22--> 00:45:36

If my mother comes to me, my mother comes to me and says, Can I borrow $100? I promise I'll pay back. I don't know when I'll be able to pay it back. But I promise I'll pay you back. Can I just borrow $100? Please?

00:45:37--> 00:45:43

If my mother had to say that to me, man, if there was ever a time I would contemplate suicide that would be it.

00:45:44--> 00:45:59

How insensitive and greedy and oblivious to the needs of my mother. must I be and how greedy mushy think I am. That instead of telling me Give me $100 she had to say what?

00:46:00--> 00:46:11

Let me borrow $100 and then on top of that, she had to say I don't know when I'll be able to pay you back. But I promise I will. She must be talking like this because she thinks I am so greedy.

00:46:12--> 00:46:31

I am so ready. I don't even respect my mother enough that she's asking me like this. Now ally is asking the greedy Muslim who's holding on to his money like it's his. And so Allah says to him, okay, you don't want to let it go at these give me What? Give me a loan. Will you give me a loan? I'll pay you back. I'm good for

00:46:33--> 00:46:39

the believers. You'd hear these IRS and just how law I'm not I'm not that greedy. I'll give I'll give

00:46:41--> 00:46:59

when he says cousin Hassan cousin is alone cousin Hassan is actually an open ended loan, meaning you don't set a deadline. That's up to the borrower to give you back whenever. Why does the law say that? He just says trust me, I'll pay you back. I'll give it back to you. Don't put a deadline on me. He's asking you to trust

00:47:00--> 00:47:28

for you but I flew in for that for you that I follow then you multiply it for him. Not only is he good for the loan, he'll give you back extra Hola. Hola, john Karim. And he has noble gracious reward, gracious compensation, meaning he'll pay you back on top of that he'll give you a job. And that agile itself will be Noble. He'll dignify you, he'll honor you. If you can just honor this little bit gift to a low back. Now will not turns to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because the IRS were I mean, the law he was soon

00:47:29--> 00:47:34

soon was mentioned to now the IRS are coming and who's reciting the IRS

00:47:36--> 00:48:06

is reciting the IRS. And the Sahaba are listening and they're sitting there crying like wow, we must be on a really low bad low that is allies revealing these ions. And the messenger feels bad for who? For the Sahaba but the messenger is no no option but to recite the IR because he doesn't make the ayatollah gives him the IR. So he's received the believers are getting a scolding from their beloved Rasulullah saw them through Allah. And now a lot turns his attention to his Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says yo ma Tara, the day on which you will see

00:48:08--> 00:48:40

Yeah, maybe the day you will see me Nina will walk me not believing men and believing women. By the way, when you say I mean it includes women, una ina, remember conjugate that that combination includes men and women. But Allah highlighted me not why. Because in this ayah, Allah wanted to honor women. He honored women and said their demand may be different. their struggles may be different. And you will see both of them standing on judgment as our new home buying at him will be a money him, a light will be running out of them.

00:48:42--> 00:48:47

From right in front of them. And from their right hand. Judgment, his dark

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

judgment is dark, there's no light

00:48:51--> 00:48:52

and we got to make an agenda.

00:48:54--> 00:48:56

And we got to go over random.

00:48:57--> 00:49:08

In Maine, Camilla, Florida. Everybody has to go over it. There's no exception. believer disbeliever there is nobody except you will have to go over janome to get to Jana

But anyway, you have to go and the path is what dark.

00:49:21--> 00:49:25

Those who had a man in their heart, I told you the only thing that matters in this world.

00:49:26--> 00:49:33

A lot will convert that faith in your heart into light, literally a torch coming out of your chest that is lighting the path

00:49:35--> 00:49:57

and then there's another light in the right hand. This is the light of human. This is the light of deeds. Allah never just mentions light of the chest and the law never just mentioned light of the hand. He always mentions them together. Why? Because if you have light in your heart, there it is impossible for you not to do action. It is impossible for you not to change.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

It's impossible. You can't do

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

have light in your heart say, brother I have in mind in my heart. I don't pray, but I have your mind and my heart. Try that on judgment day. See if this battery works and this one's dead. See how that works out for you? Because in Quran, you gotta either have both or you have what? Nothing.

00:50:15--> 00:50:20

You have both or you have nothing? Yes or no domain ID him Bobby Imani him,

00:50:21--> 00:50:26

the light is going for some people, the light goes all the way that some people that can only see their feet.

00:50:27--> 00:50:54

00:55:54--> 00:55:57

home be sued. Then a wall is dropped between them.

00:55:58--> 00:56:32

They're trying to catch up to the guys a wall is robbed. Luba which has a door so hon Allah Allah didn't just say a wall has dropped he said he dropped a wall which has a door Why did he mention a door? Because I'm gonna fail? Maybe the week of him and maybe he'll suffer in Hellfire 1000s of years. But after he's done paying for all of his sins, maybe there's still some emotion in him. And that demand might still qualify him eventually for Jenga. How's he gonna come out of that wall? If there's no What?

00:56:34--> 00:56:34

door?

00:56:35--> 00:56:37

Is his door? He didn't say it's open.

00:56:39--> 00:56:41

It's open but it might open for some eventually.

00:56:42--> 00:56:48

Eventually, but they have to pay their price first. You know, so Allah May Allah not make us of the on the wrong side of that wall.

00:56:50--> 00:56:52

So he says bottineau houfy have Rama

00:56:53--> 00:56:56

the the hidden side of that wall.

00:56:57--> 00:57:32

The hidden side of it. There's love and care and mercy. Well, why is he to whom in Kabbalah he alotta and right in front of it. The obvious side is punishment, you know, do no harm. Now the wall is dropped. But you know, imagine a wall between like a partition over here if I call out from here. Can you hear the other side? Yeah. So they started calling from the wrong side of the wall. And I'm not gonna come Hey, where are we with you? We pray together. We went to the same machine together. We were in the same class. We hang up we hung out together. We used to play ball together. We were the same people. Why are you judging us now? And I'm Nicole. Morocco. Where are we with you cannula?

00:57:32--> 00:57:59

The sort of course you were when I can knock on photon photon to one full circle. You people. You put yourselves in trouble. You put yourselves in fitna. You put yourselves in questionable circumstances. You put yourselves in doubt. You kept putting yourselves in places that you knew would take you away from Allah. You put yourselves in company and in parties and hangouts that you knew would take you away from Allah, but you kept doing it anyway.

00:58:00--> 00:58:10

And they're being told in here's my translation of Atlanta Memphis. I come for you young man. You kept going to the party, bro. You kept kicking it on the weekends for Atlanta Memphis.

00:58:13--> 00:58:18

And every time you were made told to make double use like man, Ramadan is like three more months chill.

00:58:20--> 00:58:28

I'm gonna make HUDs next year. Let me just live it up a little. All right. Let me just come on. And he will start the 27th All right.

00:58:30--> 00:59:06

27th I heard you should do something extra things I guess. Right now it's just let me live a little you know, thrombus tone guys making money. It's not just the young guys that party guys making money or, you know, running like selling liquor and gambling and all this stuff. And by the way, I'm not a Mufti. I am not I never will be. I respect our MFIs but let me tell you something about gambling and alcohol. They're not just wrong. They are according to a law that is so minimal the shape on abominations evils from the work of the shape on pork. Pigs are haram but they're not evil.

00:59:07--> 00:59:19

They're just an animal. They're not evil. Alcohol, gambling are evil. They're evil. Allah calls them abominations from the work of shaytaan.

00:59:20--> 00:59:48

Not every Haram is the same level. These are special haram categories, special haram categories, stay away from this stuff. Because you are you are in it like you're infected by shaytaan. If you're involved in that stuff, you're infected by Shetland, get away from it, save yourself, save your family. Get away stop looking for a fatwa stop. No Fatah will get away the stigma of shaytaan from alcohol and gambling.

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

Get away from it is no good for you. You're not saving anything for your family. What are Bastogne and you took your time. The IRA means you

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

I know it's haram money but let me just make enough so I can pay off the house then I'll open the halal meat shop

01:00:07--> 01:00:30

then it's all halaal after that well let me just pay off the house first let me just save enough for this kids college tuition first. Let me just save enough so I have some little bits leftover then you see I will go all Hello. I'm just gonna go super I'm gonna go organic Hello after that. But right now let me just do what I'm doing this last time you kept putting it off. You kept saying inshallah inshallah inshallah.

01:00:32--> 01:00:43

You gotta jump ship. You're not making money you're feeding your mouth is not eating. That's not Hello chicken you're eating. When you earn her money and go to the store. That's not Hello chicken you're eating.

01:00:44--> 01:00:47

It doesn't make it the money has to be halal. And the food has to be

01:00:49--> 01:01:29

you understand? And you're feeding yourself and your family fire. Don't feed them fire. Save yourself is a serious matter. You keep putting it off what sort of Boston kumana money and when you put off like that, and Siobhan gets you man shiping fills you with aspirations. Allah says Bharat Kumar Imani aspirations, false hopes they've diluted you, you were like, Man, I'm gonna move to that neighborhood. Then I'm going to get that car that I'm going to do and you're looking at magazines and you check it out real estate websites and you're looking at aspiration after aspiration after aspiration. And then you say to yourself, man, Allah has taken care of me so much Indonesia. Oh my

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

god, Jenna is gonna be awesome.

01:01:32--> 01:01:44

01:01:46--> 01:01:58

You got you started creating your own diluted version of what will happen to you and what success is or what salvation is. You started feeding yourself lies Bharat Kumar, Amani

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

Allah until the decision of Allah came until death came and all of the things you used to tell yourself and the arguments you used to have an eat parties and the justifications you used to make for your misbehavior. All of that will disappear. Whatever can be learned. And the one who is so awesome at deceiving you just got he got you. What was the Lessing shutdown? Got you? Funny Oh, man, I mean Configure. Then on that day, there is no ransom acceptable with you from you know, ransom will be taken from you that day.

01:02:39--> 01:02:50

believe no ransom will be taken. What does that mean that these people Muslims to in this world Muslims in the US that are unfortunately munaf are being put in the same category as

01:02:52--> 01:03:01

COVID I will not take anything from you. And I won't take anything from the kuffaar he put him in the same aisle. He says yeah, you endanger hidden kohara one

NASA is a kind of hidden

01:04:05--> 01:04:19

Linda Vina amanu for those who have Eman and duck Shaku boom de la de that their hearts should feel an overwhelming sense of all their hearts should be filled with the grander of Allah. But because they want to remember Allah Lee decree law as opposed to be the current law. There's so much going on in the cya.

01:06:54--> 01:07:20

times already up guys. It's already time right now, isn't it time already? Hasn't time already passed, that the hearts of those who claim to claim faith, their heart should be full of just amazement. All it's not fear for sure for sure has Hershey or any other things in it also Hulu, humility, a sense of being overpowered. You're just like, in awe of a lost power.

01:07:21--> 01:07:44

And that power wants to drive you to remember Allah Nicola. Lee could hear Lambie malaba, some grammarians also say, by the remembrance of Allah some translations say that their hearts should be filled with remembrance or their hearts should be filled with our by the remembrance of Allah due to the remembrance of Allah. But it also means their hearts should be filled up with all that they haven't remembered a law.

01:07:45--> 01:08:24

Man I'm so afraid that I didn't remember a law as I should have. You know, I really I've missed out and I need to remember him now. I can't let go of him now. The decree law woman does elemental help. This is what's called an Arabic copy of band. out of their means. In English they say IE you know IE is I met your brother IE getting or something. Okay. I saw a nice car IE Hyundai nosara Hyundai but you know, you get the point. ie clarifies. Allah says, isn't it time that believers were filled with all by remembering Allah? mythically LA.

01:08:25--> 01:08:33

ie, WA, that is to say, Man as Allah men and what came down from the truth?

01:08:36--> 01:08:43

In other words, shouldn't unbelievers be judged their hearts should just flood with tears because of what

01:08:45--> 01:09:00

and for longing for what? The Koran their hearts should be filled with an overwhelming sense of being over you know, overwhelming sense of emotion that they haven't connected with the Quran yet. Woman as a dominant

01:09:01--> 01:09:22

then the words woman has a nominal Huck scare me to kind of look could have just said well, Quran. He could have said in a time that your hearts are filled with fear, due to the remembrance of Allah or longing for the remembrance of Allah that is to say the Quran, he said that is to say what came down from the truth. The word Maya in Arabic is alludes to ambiguity, you feed with

01:09:24--> 01:09:27

ambiguity. If I say the guy who came

01:09:29--> 01:09:45

for something that was read, what am I trying to say? I don't know the name of the book. I don't know the name of the book. Allah is complaining in the ayah that those who should have remembered Allah, he's talking about the Quran as though they don't even know what it is. What came from the truth.

01:09:46--> 01:09:59

You know, that thing that came from wrote true revelation? Isn't it time that you paid attention to it? The IRS already saying you're not paying attention to the Quran? Why don't you know what it is? Why don't you make any time

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

it or not,

01:10:02--> 01:10:15

and then even when ad hoc hackers translated as truth, but have also means includes the meanings of an SD card to deserve something, what came down that is worthy of time and attention that has rights over you.

01:10:16--> 01:10:26

What came down isn't just a casual read. What came down is, it's gonna come after you. You owe it. You owe it

01:10:27--> 01:10:39

every opportunity a believer gets to get closer to the Quran if they understand these it will take she will take they will just it will be a different relationship with the Quran. Allah says is it time yet that you took Koran Seriously?

01:10:40--> 01:10:45

Adam Yanina de la mano Jacques una de La Romana Ramadan, Huck,

01:10:46--> 01:10:49

when I aku nucala Dino tokita.

01:10:52--> 01:10:56

And isn't it time that they stopped being like those who are given the book before them?

01:10:58--> 01:11:01

That's one translation. If you say that this is on me.

01:11:03--> 01:11:03

You know,

01:11:05--> 01:11:09

and I'm yummy and Yoku like that, when I aku Latina

01:11:11--> 01:11:28

isn't a time that you stop acting like the failed nations of the past who had shallow relationships with their book, they recited those books ritualistically and they have no real relationship with their book isn't the time that you stopped and you acted like the oma you're really supposed to be Isn't it time yet. And the other meaning of that is that they should not be

01:11:29--> 01:11:40

they should not be like those who are given the book before them. For Allah Allah He will a long period passed over those people factocert kulu whom and their hearts became hard.

01:11:42--> 01:11:49

Allah He the hearts becoming hard, you know hard Casa in Arabic in the Quran is not used for anything but hearts

01:11:50--> 01:11:58

is not used for anything but hearts. The only time it's used for other than hearts is going to use for rocks. And even then when rocks are compared to hearts.

01:12:00--> 01:12:02

Only that time otherwise it's not used.

01:12:03--> 01:12:17

Allah describes the heart as becoming heart as becoming hard. Becoming hard. Why? Because the law says that the people became like the People of the Book. What does that mean? They read the book they recite the book

01:12:18--> 01:12:19

but they have no clue what's in it

01:12:20--> 01:12:23

they have no clue what's in it. They don't care

01:12:24--> 01:12:28

they don't come to it to soften their heart. They don't come to it to talk to Allah

01:12:29--> 01:12:38

they don't they don't they don't they don't have with it what they should have lie interferon I mean, whom I mean a lot of salsa sallallahu sallam, these people have the book benefit nothing from it.

01:12:39--> 01:12:49

You know, be a de moto rollin G, they have to Los Angeles in their hands. If they don't benefit from it. The Muslim will become like this. The Muslim will come to the Imam and say mom,

01:12:50--> 01:12:53

I have a fever. Which surah Should I recite?

01:12:54--> 01:13:00

amounts of I have my daughter is getting married which surah Should we play the recitation of after the DJ is done.

01:13:02--> 01:13:03

Which should be recite.

01:13:04--> 01:13:10

Then they'll come they'll say, Hey, listen, what do I should I make from the Quran if I'm looking for a job?

01:13:11--> 01:13:50

This is all Quran is for you. That's all it is for you. You're looking for Baraka in this thing or that thing or the other thing because Quran came to give Baraka to your parties, to your ceremonies. That's why the Quran came so it can bless your ceremonies. The Quran did not come to change you know, Quran did not didn't come to give you give you advice, to change you to make you a different person to live to live to earn your money differently. It didn't come for that. It just came so you hire some guy at your wedding. And he comes in recites Quran and put women put napkins on their heads. That's why I put on came. That's what Chronos Do you have colon cancer, you can have

01:13:50--> 01:13:59

decorated large iaat in your home. big giant, colossal inside your house next to the big screen TV.

01:14:01--> 01:14:02

That's why it came

01:14:03--> 01:14:09

crashing so you can hang it in the rearview mirror. I could see because you don't have dual side airbags.

01:14:10--> 01:14:11

That's why it came.

01:14:12--> 01:14:16

What have we done with this crime? What have we turned it into?

01:14:17--> 01:14:19

This is serious matter, folks.

01:14:20--> 01:14:28

We're wrapping this book up and we're, you know, we're printing it in silk. And we're having art exhibits with it.

01:14:31--> 01:14:36

Tell Allah gave us this mess. People people like spilled blood

01:14:37--> 01:14:44

to change their lives according to this book. And now it's become a book that is just ceremonial

01:14:46--> 01:15:00

and breaks your heart. It breaks your heart. We celebrate. I'm not blaming anyone. I'm not talking about your community. Do not say I was talking about your community. Listen to what I'm saying. We celebrate children.

01:15:00--> 01:15:03

In memorizing the Quran, we celebrate it.

01:15:04--> 01:15:09

And yet we don't cry when those children become adults, and they still don't know what they're reciting.

01:15:11--> 01:15:22

They still don't know what they're reciting. But we celebrate it every year. And when those kids are leaving taraweeh, the guy leading the prayer doesn't know what he's reciting. What do you expect from the conjugation?

01:15:23--> 01:15:25

The guy leading the prayer doesn't know.

01:15:26--> 01:15:33

There's something wrong with that. That's not that's not normal. That is not how things are supposed to be. We've done this.

01:15:36--> 01:15:37

We've done this.

01:15:38--> 01:15:47

And our kids, we've given them an artificial relationship with the Quran. These kids they memorize Quran and the biggest goal in their life at minimum and Alito yet this year.

01:15:50--> 01:15:51

Listen, Ron is not a trophy.

01:15:53--> 01:16:13

Quran is not you get a prize when you recite it. It's not. I met a couple of the kids that have memorized Quran, and they're looking for places to lead that is coming. And they're like, Hey, what did they pay? What does this one pay? What does that mean? What did you get for a prize at that machine? They're already talking about what they're gonna get when they read the prayer. Now you're talking about getting paid to lead prayer?

01:16:15--> 01:16:28

Is this stuff should bother us? This is what we've done with cron. We've done this, nobody else came into this house. Don't blame the government. Don't blame the corrupt this or that we've that we've done this with the last book. You don't think alone. Ask us about that.

01:16:30--> 01:16:51

Why are we supposed to take this book? What is it supposed to mean to us? This book came to change my life, this book came to change your life. We have to remind ourselves of that. We have to remind our kids of that, you know, father of the Quran, back in the day. These used to be called Hamel of Quran, carrier of Quran because it was understood they carry a huge responsibility. That was understood.

01:16:52--> 01:17:00

You know, and I'm not just picking on the kids that are memorizing Quran, it's not their fault. It's our fault that we don't teach them more. And we better we better.

01:17:01--> 01:17:07

It's our fault. We don't teach our community. It's our fault. I want to leave you with this.

01:17:09--> 01:17:18

When I was in college, and I started learning Arabic, and then I started reading Quran and I heard lots of Quran for the first time. I was very angry.

01:17:19--> 01:17:23

I was angry. I was angry at the oma

01:17:24--> 01:17:34

How did they rob me? And I'm, you know, 18 years of age born a Muslim? How did I never know what the Quran is? How come they never told me?

01:17:36--> 01:18:08

How come they just expected I would just figure it out myself. How come they don't tell me this? This book is the most important treasure I will ever have in my life. How come they never told me that 23 years of the most difficult struggle in human history, the struggle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam the culmination of it was finally oberliga shahidullah believer and I give on my behalf even if you can give an ayah just give given I on my behalf. rasulillah salam just wanted the world to know this book and my own Omar didn't care to give it to me.

01:18:09--> 01:18:11

My own people. We left it

01:18:12--> 01:18:26

we can't live like this. We can't go on like this will pay the price. We shouldn't be I found out 1,000,001 point 5 million Ottomans Earth monies came to Ellis Island

01:18:28--> 01:18:30

1.5 million immigrants had come to Ellis Island

01:18:32--> 01:18:35

10,000 or less of their descendants are Muslim today

01:18:37--> 01:18:38

1.5 million

01:18:40--> 01:18:42

Come on guys. Come on.

01:18:43--> 01:19:24

This This book is either going to testify for you and me on Judgement Day or it will testify against us. Those of you that were in the class I want to leave you with a reality check. Um I try to make it my job to make Arabic more enjoyable to learn to make Koran easy to understand I try to make that my job but you know what i can only do so much. This has to be a responsibility the oma carries every family carries. We got to we got to know our book guys. Whatever cron you've memorized, at least steady that to feed these requests the Imam to do the feed of those sources that you've already memorized. If you've already memorized the sources from just Allah, just take advantage of

01:19:24--> 01:19:59

our podcasts, free downloads, the only thing that will cost you is your time. At least learn what Allah saying in those solos. So when you are standing in Salafi or talking to Allah, talk to Allah, it changes you. It light it puts light in your day and puts light in your life. Our kids need this. We need this. Don't just worry about your children's education. It's not like a level ask how did you put them in Islamic school or not? It's not like we are doing justice to the this book. ourselves. We're not we're really not. I pray honestly.

01:20:00--> 01:20:11

I didn't want to leave you on a downer. I didn't but it just pains my heart. It really does. It really pains my heart Ramadan is around the corner guys the month of Quran is around the corner

01:20:12--> 01:20:38

the month that became sacred because the Quran came in it what makes Ramadan special is not the fasting is not the accordion Some will say it's not what makes someone special. cron came in a cron came in it couldn't leanness and those are the lessons he said guidance to all humanity. Quran is the month in which this book should be shared with a whole humanity

01:20:39--> 01:20:40

but you know

01:20:42--> 01:20:52

it's such a beautiful description of the Quran for the month of Ramadan itself The first thing Allah told us about Ramadan was not fasting he said shadow Ramadan and let the Koran

01:20:55--> 01:20:56

Mundo Ramallah you're gonna fast in it no month of Ramadan cryin came in it for a minute. Get ready for Ramadan guys, make this Ramadan you change your life. You become people of Quran. I'm going to leave you with a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I'm going to conclude

01:21:15--> 01:21:20

as soon as I saw him says such a beautiful Hadith. You ever heard the phrase? Yeah, you heard it.

01:21:21--> 01:21:23

Right? He says in this hadith.

01:21:26--> 01:21:27

People of Quran

01:21:28--> 01:21:32

he called me and he called you people have grown.

01:21:33--> 01:21:33

Not at all.

01:21:35--> 01:22:06

Don't become lackadaisical with the Quran. Don't Don't be lazy about the Quran. Don't turn the Quran into a pillow at our sword Allah sada in Arabic means pillow that are so do Don't turn around into a pillow. Meaning don't sleep on it. Don't get lazy with it. Don't relax with it. Don't say Alhamdulillah we belong to the oma that was given the final revelation. Oh thank god we're saved. No that is the West with the Quran. Don't assume you're saved because your people have caught on the latter tawassul Quran

01:22:07--> 01:22:32

what Lou Hakata what the human lady when the heart in any hour of the night and day read it like deserves to be read. Follow it like it deserves to be followed. Find every chance every nook and cranny in your day that you can fill with Koran fill it if you're sitting there idly in a doctor's office, recite Quran if you're driving whatever so does you know recite Listen, recite, listen, become people of Quran.

01:22:33--> 01:22:39

Quran what Lou Hakata loud even Anna Elaine even the heart of shoe who and spread it.

01:22:40--> 01:22:44

Spread it when you love something people will say what is that?

01:22:45--> 01:23:02

Can I have some of that and you will spread it. Your love is contagious. I'm telling you love is contagious. What doesn't know who and beautify your voice is withdrawn. When you start tasting the recitation of Quran. No music will take its place.

01:23:03--> 01:23:12

You will not need to have a fatwa on whether music is halal or haram. Music will just become irrelevant to you. Because the Quran, the divine melody,

01:23:13--> 01:23:26

divine music revealed music Koran that will just flow in your heart and you will just never want to just whistle a tune again. It'll just take over. You know,

01:23:27--> 01:23:36

when you recite Quran with melody doesn't know what Adam baru Fie and think deeply about Koran. Dive into the meanings of

01:23:37--> 01:24:15

pull out the pearls and treasures from the Quran. Allah come to flee home so you can become people of success. These are the words that Russell's gonna call those people of Quran. I pray that we're able to live up to that advice. And I pray that Allah azza wa jal makes us witnesses that makes the Quran a witness in our favor and not a witness against us. I pray that a lot helps our communities grow more and more in their demand through their sustained relationship and a constantly growing relationship with the Quran. I pray that our young generation, we, through the young generation come an entire army of young students and teachers of this book that will spread the love of this book,

01:24:16--> 01:24:54

and the understanding of this book to generate for generations to come. I pray that Allah azza wa jal put Baraka in our Islamic schools, in our schools in our Sunday schools and our Saturday schools, in our youth programs, in our conferences and our conventions in our data programs, a lot of Baraka in them that these programs become a means by which we get closer and closer to him and are able to do some justice to the awesome responsibility that he's given us. I pray that our massages become a place where people can get truly get closer to Allah and closer to each other. I pray that Allah protects our masajid from fitna and infighting and jealousy and hatred and you know,

01:24:54--> 01:25:00

undercutting each other and dishonesty, Allah, Allah protect each other us from anger and just you know, having

01:25:00--> 01:25:09

All opinions of each other. Now I pray that allows our agenda for those of you that that studied here and those of you who did not study here, I pray that Allah makes the language of the Quran. Easy for you.
