Nouman Ali Khan – Surah Al Jumuah #23 Why the Quran Is Easy to Memorize

Nouman Ali Khan
AI: Summary © The Quran is a complex and logically organized title designed to make students remember information. It is not a complete understanding of the nuances of the language, but rather a part of the culture of Muslims. The title provides insight into the transformation process and helps students pursue spiritual transformation through prayer, detox, and longer term maintenance. It is important to preserve the light of one's face and offers sponsorship for students to study the Quran.

This coming to Jumuah is us

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

trying to strengthen our what?

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

Our

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

light,

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

To reinforce our light. Now, when you stand

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

in prayer every day, 5 times a day,

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

you recharge your light a little bit.

00:00:16 --> 00:00:19

Okay? So in in cars, you need refueling

00:00:19 --> 00:00:22

every day, but every every little longer you

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

need an oil change, and a little bit

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

longer you need a tune up.

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

Isn't it?

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

Before you begin this video, just quickly wanted

00:00:34 --> 00:00:36

to let you know that so much of

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

the work on the Quran has been completed

00:00:37 --> 00:00:40

on Bayinatv. I want you to enjoy systematically

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

studying the Quran from the beginning all the

00:00:42 --> 00:00:43

way to the end in brief and then

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

in great detail. And to do that, I'd

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

like for you to sign up on bayinatv.com.

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

And once you appreciate what's going on in

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

bayinatv, I want you to become an ambassador

00:00:52 --> 00:00:53

for it and share that subscription with friends

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

and family and give it as a gift

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

also. Thank you.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:38

Task is to try and understand

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

the change of subject and the placement of,

00:01:42 --> 00:01:45

this new final subject matter of Surat Al

00:01:45 --> 00:01:47

Jummar. As you already know, Surat Al Jummar

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

is only 11 ayaat. We're gonna try to

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

cover ayahs number 9 and 10 today, and

00:01:51 --> 00:01:54

conclude with ayah number 11 and an overview

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

of the Surah and some additional things inshaAllah

00:01:56 --> 00:01:57

ta'ala tomorrow.

00:01:58 --> 00:02:00

The thing that I want you to understand

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

is, you know, there are multiple ways to

00:02:03 --> 00:02:05

understand what is happening inside of a surah.

00:02:06 --> 00:02:09

The surah of the Quran is not like

00:02:09 --> 00:02:10

a chapter in a book.

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

So I don't like the translation

00:02:13 --> 00:02:15

surah 1, surah 2, surah 3 as chapter

00:02:15 --> 00:02:17

1, chapter 2, chapter 3 like that.

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

Because chapters

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

by definition have a certain logic

00:02:22 --> 00:02:24

that everybody's familiar with. A chapter 3 means

00:02:24 --> 00:02:27

you've it's built on the ideas presented in

00:02:27 --> 00:02:28

chapter 2.

00:02:28 --> 00:02:30

Right? And it depends on them in some

00:02:30 --> 00:02:30

way.

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

And if chapter 3 is going to need

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

something that is going to be mentioned again

00:02:35 --> 00:02:37

from chapter 2, it won't mention the whole

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

thing you get, it'll just make a quick

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

reference

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

and then move forward. Right? So that's my

00:02:43 --> 00:02:44

definition chapters are chronological,

00:02:45 --> 00:02:47

and they have a certain developmental

00:02:47 --> 00:02:48

order.

00:02:48 --> 00:02:50

So you cannot start a book and go

00:02:50 --> 00:02:51

to chapter 85,

00:02:52 --> 00:02:54

if you haven't read the first 84 chapters.

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

It doesn't make any sense. But in the

00:02:56 --> 00:02:59

Quran you know that we even kids know

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

at the end of the Quran, or at

00:03:04 --> 00:03:06

the end of the Quran. And even though

00:03:06 --> 00:03:08

those are the final chapters in the order

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

of the Quran,

00:03:10 --> 00:03:12

they're not dependent on earlier material.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:15

Right? So it doesn't really fit the definition

00:03:15 --> 00:03:16

of chapter.

00:03:16 --> 00:03:19

Surah's have their own unique identity.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:22

The other thing is inside a chapter, that's

00:03:22 --> 00:03:25

just the chronology of chapters. But even inside

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

a chapter,

00:03:26 --> 00:03:28

you're supposed to have

00:03:28 --> 00:03:29

a progression of ideas.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

So you're supposed to have, you know, some

00:03:32 --> 00:03:34

kind of a one subject

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

that one chapter deals with. Right? And then

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

you don't have If you wanted to have

00:03:38 --> 00:03:39

multiple topics,

00:03:40 --> 00:03:41

then you would turn them into multiple chapters.

00:03:42 --> 00:03:43

That's what you would do.

00:03:43 --> 00:03:45

What happens often in the Quran is, you

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

will have 1 surah, but the surah might

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

have 20 topics.

00:03:49 --> 00:03:51

It might have 15 topics. It might have

00:03:51 --> 00:03:52

8 different topics.

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

It doesn't feel like a chapter. It almost

00:03:54 --> 00:03:56

feels like a book by itself.

00:03:57 --> 00:03:59

Even if it feels on its own like

00:03:59 --> 00:04:00

an entire book.

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

And even then understanding

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

why are these different

00:04:04 --> 00:04:04

topics,

00:04:05 --> 00:04:06

why are they all together

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

in this,

00:04:08 --> 00:04:10

in this way? Why is this being called

00:04:10 --> 00:04:12

a surah? So I'm not using the word

00:04:12 --> 00:04:15

chapter anymore, I'm using the word surah. So

00:04:15 --> 00:04:16

the surah has its own

00:04:16 --> 00:04:19

logic. It's not the same as the logic

00:04:19 --> 00:04:22

you find in books and chapters and poetry

00:04:22 --> 00:04:24

and other kinds of literature. It's its own

00:04:24 --> 00:04:25

unique standard.

00:04:26 --> 00:04:27

And one of the mistakes we make

00:04:28 --> 00:04:29

in studying the Quran,

00:04:30 --> 00:04:32

is one we say, well because you're used

00:04:32 --> 00:04:33

to use reading books

00:04:34 --> 00:04:36

in literature, in poetry,

00:04:36 --> 00:04:37

stories, novels,

00:04:38 --> 00:04:41

science books, mathematics books, physics books, whatever books

00:04:41 --> 00:04:43

you're reading and whatever subject you're reading, they

00:04:43 --> 00:04:45

have a certain structure and a certain order,

00:04:45 --> 00:04:45

right?

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

We have our minds are built and programmed

00:04:48 --> 00:04:51

to process information that way. And We bring

00:04:52 --> 00:04:53

those expectations

00:04:53 --> 00:04:54

to the Quran.

00:04:54 --> 00:04:56

And then the Quran does not meet those

00:04:56 --> 00:04:57

expectations,

00:04:57 --> 00:04:58

clearly.

00:04:58 --> 00:05:00

And then it starts feeling like the Quran

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

is unorganized.

00:05:02 --> 00:05:04

That it's because it doesn't follow the logic

00:05:04 --> 00:05:07

that we're used to, it looks like it's

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

unorganized.

00:05:09 --> 00:05:11

And 2 things happened in our history. One

00:05:11 --> 00:05:13

thing that happened in our history is our

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

scholars,

00:05:14 --> 00:05:17

they started accepting that idea. They started many

00:05:17 --> 00:05:19

of them accepted the idea that the Quran

00:05:19 --> 00:05:21

is actually not really

00:05:21 --> 00:05:23

logically organized.

00:05:23 --> 00:05:26

There's no point in exploring why is it

00:05:26 --> 00:05:29

organized this way. Let's just study each ayah

00:05:29 --> 00:05:30

as a lesson from Allah,

00:05:31 --> 00:05:32

And the next ayah as a next lesson

00:05:32 --> 00:05:34

from Allah. And the next ayah as the

00:05:34 --> 00:05:36

next lesson from Allah. And sometimes we can

00:05:36 --> 00:05:38

see that this ayah is connected to this

00:05:38 --> 00:05:41

ayah. And we can describe the connection. Sometimes

00:05:41 --> 00:05:42

we cannot see the connection, it seems like

00:05:42 --> 00:05:45

it's completely disconnected. And there you'll find that

00:05:45 --> 00:05:48

many scholars won't even discuss what just happened.

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

They'll just say, Now Allah is talking about

00:05:50 --> 00:05:51

this.

00:05:51 --> 00:05:52

But not say,

00:05:52 --> 00:05:54

Why is He talking about this?

00:05:54 --> 00:05:56

I wonder why what happened here? Why did

00:05:56 --> 00:05:58

the subject change all of a sudden?

00:05:58 --> 00:06:01

Even as an English reader of the translation

00:06:01 --> 00:06:04

of the Quran, you might notice a very

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

abrupt,

00:06:05 --> 00:06:06

shocking change in subject.

00:06:07 --> 00:06:09

Immediately without warning. And you can feel it,

00:06:09 --> 00:06:11

you can feel something just shifted

00:06:12 --> 00:06:13

and it's

00:06:13 --> 00:06:16

actually meant to almost disturb the reader.

00:06:16 --> 00:06:19

Because the flow like when you listen to

00:06:19 --> 00:06:20

recitation of the Quran, right? It has a

00:06:20 --> 00:06:21

flow.

00:06:21 --> 00:06:23

Right? It's just

00:06:23 --> 00:06:26

especially a good reciter, they're reciting the Quran

00:06:26 --> 00:06:28

and there's this endless continuous flow, you just

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

want them to keep on reciting.

00:06:29 --> 00:06:32

Right? But then when you're reading the translation,

00:06:32 --> 00:06:34

you're like, this is very cut up. This

00:06:34 --> 00:06:37

is very disjointed. So it's actually doesn't seem

00:06:37 --> 00:06:38

like it has a flow.

00:06:39 --> 00:06:40

Now one way to understand

00:06:41 --> 00:06:43

the way things are organized in the Quran.

00:06:43 --> 00:06:45

I showed you some of the slides on

00:06:45 --> 00:06:47

the end of a section and how things

00:06:47 --> 00:06:49

are very uniquely organized

00:06:49 --> 00:06:51

inside of a chapter, right? And that's not

00:06:51 --> 00:06:53

easy to hear because it's not going the

00:06:53 --> 00:06:55

or the order of a, b, c, d,

00:06:55 --> 00:06:58

e, f, g. It's going a, b, c

00:06:58 --> 00:07:00

and then a, b, c again.

00:07:01 --> 00:07:03

Or it's going a b c and then

00:07:03 --> 00:07:04

c b a

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

or something like that, which is more complicated

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

than just a b c d e f

00:07:09 --> 00:07:11

g. It's not the same kind of structure.

00:07:11 --> 00:07:13

But at the same time as that is

00:07:13 --> 00:07:15

there and that's you know whatever surahs I've

00:07:15 --> 00:07:17

worked on I've seen those kinds of structures

00:07:17 --> 00:07:19

in all of those surahs. And I've tried

00:07:19 --> 00:07:21

to you know explain

00:07:22 --> 00:07:24

that kind of a design to the surahs

00:07:24 --> 00:07:26

of the Quran. Many people have been working

00:07:26 --> 00:07:28

on this and they've done some amazing amazing

00:07:28 --> 00:07:30

work especially in the last 30 40 years.

00:07:30 --> 00:07:31

Quite a bit of work has been done

00:07:32 --> 00:07:34

on the structural analysis of the Quran. I

00:07:34 --> 00:07:36

think it's very fascinating interesting work.

00:07:37 --> 00:07:38

Some of this was done in classical times

00:07:38 --> 00:07:41

by scholars very little but now it's become

00:07:41 --> 00:07:42

an entire you can think of it it's

00:07:42 --> 00:07:44

become an entire department in Quran studies by

00:07:44 --> 00:07:45

itself.

00:07:46 --> 00:07:47

But then there's another

00:07:48 --> 00:07:50

part to the logic of surahs and that

00:07:50 --> 00:07:52

is I like to call it linear coherence.

00:07:52 --> 00:07:55

Linear coherence means when I start my speech,

00:07:56 --> 00:07:58

between the start of my speech and the

00:07:58 --> 00:07:59

end of my speech, there needs to be

00:07:59 --> 00:08:00

a logical continuity.

00:08:01 --> 00:08:04

Like a needs to make sense to move

00:08:04 --> 00:08:05

into B, and B needs to make sense

00:08:05 --> 00:08:07

to move into C, so you can see

00:08:07 --> 00:08:10

the conclusion of my argument, right? Sometimes you

00:08:10 --> 00:08:12

listen to a speech and the speaker is

00:08:12 --> 00:08:13

talking about everything,

00:08:14 --> 00:08:16

and everything was really cool, but at the

00:08:16 --> 00:08:17

end of the speech you're like, So what

00:08:17 --> 00:08:18

did he talk about? I don't know, but

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

it was awesome.

00:08:20 --> 00:08:22

Well you don't remember because it wasn't

00:08:22 --> 00:08:25

methodically structured. It wasn't organized.

00:08:25 --> 00:08:26

You know but

00:08:26 --> 00:08:28

a lecture in a class like when you

00:08:28 --> 00:08:30

go to your professor at school, a good

00:08:30 --> 00:08:32

teacher is going to have a plan. Here's

00:08:32 --> 00:08:34

how I'm going to introduce the subject.

00:08:35 --> 00:08:36

Then I'm gonna give examples.

00:08:37 --> 00:08:38

Then I'm gonna do review, and then I'll

00:08:38 --> 00:08:41

conclude by recapping the entire lesson.

00:08:42 --> 00:08:43

But they'll have the a plan in their

00:08:43 --> 00:08:44

head.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:46

A, B, C, D and then come back

00:08:46 --> 00:08:48

to A and finish it all up, right?

00:08:48 --> 00:08:50

They have a lesson, it's called a lesson

00:08:50 --> 00:08:52

plan. Now Allah says,

00:08:52 --> 00:08:53

you know,

00:08:54 --> 00:08:55

and we saw

00:08:55 --> 00:08:56

here

00:08:56 --> 00:08:57

He teaches them the book

00:08:58 --> 00:08:59

and teaching

00:08:59 --> 00:09:01

needs curriculum.

00:09:02 --> 00:09:04

Speaking does not need curriculum. When you're speaking

00:09:04 --> 00:09:06

to a friend, you don't need a plan,

00:09:06 --> 00:09:07

you just talk.

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

But when you're teaching someone, you have you

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

a teacher does not think about what's on

00:09:11 --> 00:09:12

their mind.

00:09:13 --> 00:09:15

A teacher thinks about how do I get

00:09:15 --> 00:09:17

this into the mind of my student that

00:09:17 --> 00:09:18

it stays there.

00:09:19 --> 00:09:22

Okay. Which is different from informing someone. Like

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

the news

00:09:23 --> 00:09:25

on the radio, or the news online,

00:09:26 --> 00:09:28

The news is not teaching you, the news

00:09:28 --> 00:09:30

is just informing you. So it's a lot

00:09:30 --> 00:09:31

of information,

00:09:31 --> 00:09:34

it's not expecting you to remember that information.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:36

You can grab bits and pieces that you

00:09:36 --> 00:09:39

find interesting, and you can move on. Maybe

00:09:39 --> 00:09:42

95%, 99% of it, you don't care. The

00:09:42 --> 00:09:44

news is telling you there's traffic over there,

00:09:44 --> 00:09:46

there's an accident over there, there's this over

00:09:46 --> 00:09:48

there, but there's one road that they mentioned

00:09:48 --> 00:09:50

that that's the one you're taking, that's all

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

you care about.

00:09:51 --> 00:09:54

You know, all that information, it disappears from

00:09:54 --> 00:09:57

your mind. Because the news report is informing

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

you, but it's not teaching you.

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

But when a teacher teaches you, then the

00:10:02 --> 00:10:04

teacher expects that you should be able to

00:10:04 --> 00:10:06

remember and reuse

00:10:06 --> 00:10:08

all the things that were taught to you.

00:10:09 --> 00:10:11

You understand? So there's a deeper relationship

00:10:11 --> 00:10:14

because in all of them someone's talking and

00:10:14 --> 00:10:16

you're listening. A teacher is talking and you're

00:10:16 --> 00:10:19

listening. A speaker is talking and you're listening.

00:10:19 --> 00:10:21

The radio is talking and you're listening.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:23

All of them is just you're take you're

00:10:23 --> 00:10:25

getting taking data inside.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:28

Information is going inside, but there's a fundamental

00:10:28 --> 00:10:31

difference the moment we use the word teaching.

00:10:31 --> 00:10:33

Now, for teaching,

00:10:33 --> 00:10:35

a plan is really important.

00:10:36 --> 00:10:37

That's the next part.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:39

Teaching does not happen without a real plan.

00:10:39 --> 00:10:41

A teacher has a strategy that by the

00:10:41 --> 00:10:42

end of this lesson,

00:10:43 --> 00:10:45

I have some goals I want my students

00:10:45 --> 00:10:46

to walk away with.

00:10:47 --> 00:10:48

Now what are the goals of the Quran?

00:10:49 --> 00:10:50

The goals of the Quran

00:10:51 --> 00:10:52

is one of them is

00:10:53 --> 00:10:55

so that you make an effort to remember.

00:10:55 --> 00:10:57

So Allah wants to put things in a

00:10:57 --> 00:10:58

way that will make it easy for you

00:10:58 --> 00:11:00

to remember. And of course, one of the

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

reasons the Quran is so

00:11:02 --> 00:11:04

miraculously easy to memorize,

00:11:05 --> 00:11:07

is actually because part of the design of

00:11:07 --> 00:11:10

the Quran was, these lessons should be forever

00:11:10 --> 00:11:12

remembered, and you shouldn't have to go and

00:11:12 --> 00:11:14

open a copy of a book, and then

00:11:14 --> 00:11:17

access these lessons. They should just flow out

00:11:17 --> 00:11:19

of you on your drive home. You're just

00:11:19 --> 00:11:20

reciting a surah.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

That you memorized it and you're just reciting

00:11:22 --> 00:11:25

it. Right? And for 1000 of years Muslims

00:11:25 --> 00:11:27

have been memorizing parts of the Quran or

00:11:27 --> 00:11:30

the entire Quran. Those lessons become a part

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

of them.

00:11:32 --> 00:11:34

So, We made the Quran easy for remembrance.

00:11:34 --> 00:11:36

By the way, making something easy is the

00:11:36 --> 00:11:38

job of a teacher, isn't it?

00:11:38 --> 00:11:40

Right? Because a speaker doesn't have to make

00:11:40 --> 00:11:40

something

00:11:41 --> 00:11:41

easy.

00:11:42 --> 00:11:43

A king doesn't have to make something easy,

00:11:43 --> 00:11:45

but a teacher has to make something easy.

00:11:45 --> 00:11:47

Allah is speaking in the role of a

00:11:47 --> 00:11:47

teacher.

00:11:48 --> 00:11:50

The other thing that a teacher does,

00:11:51 --> 00:11:53

that's the difference between a good teacher and

00:11:53 --> 00:11:55

a bad teacher. A good teacher or let's

00:11:55 --> 00:11:57

start with a bad teacher. A bad teacher

00:11:57 --> 00:11:58

like we have many of those in the

00:11:58 --> 00:12:00

world, they'll come and sit in the class

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

and say

00:12:01 --> 00:12:03

to the kids, Read chapter 3.

00:12:04 --> 00:12:06

And then they're doing their old thing.

00:12:07 --> 00:12:08

Like just learn it yourself,

00:12:09 --> 00:12:11

Oh the exams on chapter 5, study.

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

Are you gonna review it? Are you gonna

00:12:14 --> 00:12:16

help us understand it? Are you gonna No,

00:12:16 --> 00:12:17

the book tells you everything you need to

00:12:17 --> 00:12:18

know.

00:12:19 --> 00:12:19

In other words,

00:12:20 --> 00:12:22

their idea is so long as you have

00:12:22 --> 00:12:22

the information,

00:12:23 --> 00:12:25

you deal with it. But what happens to

00:12:25 --> 00:12:27

you growing up or even in university,

00:12:28 --> 00:12:30

you're reading the text, you're reading the chapter,

00:12:31 --> 00:12:32

you're reading all the information,

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

but it's just

00:12:34 --> 00:12:36

isolated bits of data,

00:12:37 --> 00:12:39

but you don't see how it makes sense.

00:12:39 --> 00:12:42

It's not making sense to you, it's disconnected.

00:12:43 --> 00:12:44

Then you go to someone who's a better

00:12:44 --> 00:12:47

student, or someone who's a tutor, or someone

00:12:47 --> 00:12:49

who's doing internship or whatever you say, Can

00:12:49 --> 00:12:51

you help me understand this? And in 5

00:12:51 --> 00:12:53

minutes they take this complicated chapter and what

00:12:53 --> 00:12:55

do they do? They help you. You know

00:12:55 --> 00:12:57

this idea, this is connected to this idea.

00:12:57 --> 00:12:58

And then you say, you're sitting there in

00:12:58 --> 00:13:01

the library going, oh it's like that.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:03

Oh my God.

00:13:03 --> 00:13:05

Why didn't they just do that? Why didn't

00:13:05 --> 00:13:06

they just say that? Why did they make

00:13:06 --> 00:13:08

it so hard? Many of you have had

00:13:08 --> 00:13:10

those moments in your life

00:13:10 --> 00:13:12

and then you've some of you sometimes you've

00:13:12 --> 00:13:14

had a teacher in your life who's really

00:13:14 --> 00:13:16

good at taking complicated subjects and making them

00:13:16 --> 00:13:17

what?

00:13:17 --> 00:13:20

Making them easy, right? So what does Allah

00:13:20 --> 00:13:23

do? Allah actually teaches in a way that

00:13:23 --> 00:13:24

makes things easy.

00:13:25 --> 00:13:28

And so the Quran, somebody mentioned yesterday, the

00:13:28 --> 00:13:30

sister from Italy, from The Place of Bad

00:13:30 --> 00:13:31

Pizzas, mentioned yesterday

00:13:32 --> 00:13:35

that, you know the Quran is simply you

00:13:35 --> 00:13:36

know, in her own words she said that

00:13:36 --> 00:13:39

the Quran is not presenting something in complicated

00:13:39 --> 00:13:42

language, it's presenting it in very simplified language.

00:13:42 --> 00:13:44

And that's actually true. Allah, the one who

00:13:44 --> 00:13:47

knows more than any PhD knows and has

00:13:47 --> 00:13:49

more vocabulary than any human being can ever

00:13:49 --> 00:13:51

have, can use the hardest words possible.

00:13:52 --> 00:13:54

And if Allah wants to talk to me

00:13:54 --> 00:13:55

about Jewish history,

00:13:56 --> 00:13:58

He has no more knowledge of Jewish history

00:13:58 --> 00:14:00

than the Encyclopedia Britannica or the entire volumes

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

of Jewish history, and he knows the chapters

00:14:02 --> 00:14:04

of history that have been lost. He knows

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

all of it. He knows the map of

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

the world better than anybody else.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:09

Right? He knows he knows the the places

00:14:09 --> 00:14:11

that are ruins, that are buried deep inside

00:14:11 --> 00:14:13

the ground, and we haven't even found them

00:14:13 --> 00:14:15

yet. The nations that have been lost. He

00:14:15 --> 00:14:17

knows them. We don't know them. He could

00:14:17 --> 00:14:19

talk about them in much more sophisticated complicated

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

ways.

00:14:21 --> 00:14:24

But he chose not to give us information

00:14:24 --> 00:14:27

in the Quran. He chose to educate us.

00:14:28 --> 00:14:30

And the goal, the first goal of education

00:14:30 --> 00:14:31

is to remember.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:34

And the second goal of education, it seems

00:14:34 --> 00:14:36

to be in the Quran, is to change

00:14:36 --> 00:14:37

the way you think.

00:14:38 --> 00:14:40

Now so Allah is less concerned with the

00:14:40 --> 00:14:41

volume of information.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:45

Allah is more concerned with the way you

00:14:45 --> 00:14:46

and I think,

00:14:47 --> 00:14:47

actually.

00:14:48 --> 00:14:50

So it this is really really cool and

00:14:50 --> 00:14:52

really important. That means

00:14:52 --> 00:14:54

we are we can be obsessed with knowledge.

00:14:54 --> 00:14:56

I want to learn Arabic, I want to

00:14:56 --> 00:14:57

learn tafsir, I want to learn hadith, I

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

want to learn fiqh, I want to learn

00:14:59 --> 00:15:01

Islamic history, I wanna learn philosophy, I wanna

00:15:01 --> 00:15:05

learn comparative religion, learn, learn, learn. Information, information,

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

information, information.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:08

But actually at the end of every little

00:15:08 --> 00:15:10

lesson, every single thing you learn in the

00:15:10 --> 00:15:13

end, how did this change the way I

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

what?

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

How I think?

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

How did this change the way I think?

00:15:18 --> 00:15:20

My world view has to enhance in some

00:15:20 --> 00:15:22

way. With that in mind, I want you

00:15:22 --> 00:15:25

to know that every surah of the Quran

00:15:25 --> 00:15:27

has a certain point. It wants you to

00:15:27 --> 00:15:29

get it wants to get a certain way

00:15:29 --> 00:15:31

of thinking across to you.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

This surah that we're studying, we're starting the

00:15:33 --> 00:15:36

final section of the surah. It's made up

00:15:36 --> 00:15:36

of 3

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

sections.

00:15:38 --> 00:15:39

There are 3 sections.

00:15:39 --> 00:15:43

In the first section, Allah described how what

00:15:43 --> 00:15:44

His plan is

00:15:44 --> 00:15:46

for that He gave to His Prophet salallahu

00:15:46 --> 00:15:49

alaihi wasalam to make sure that the final

00:15:49 --> 00:15:52

Prophet gives people the book and they have

00:15:52 --> 00:15:54

a relationship with the their people have a

00:15:54 --> 00:15:56

relationship with their book that is made up

00:15:56 --> 00:15:58

of 4 components.

00:15:59 --> 00:16:02

It's not one relationship, it's 4 relationships.

00:16:07 --> 00:16:09

And then the ummah will grow but these

00:16:09 --> 00:16:12

four elements of the relationship will remain forever.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:14

They must remain in place.

00:16:15 --> 00:16:18

That was the agenda of the first section

00:16:18 --> 00:16:19

of

00:16:19 --> 00:16:20

the surah.

00:16:20 --> 00:16:22

This is what the a real relationship with

00:16:22 --> 00:16:24

the book looks like. Okay.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:27

The second section looked like it went somewhere

00:16:27 --> 00:16:29

else completely. Where did we where did we

00:16:29 --> 00:16:31

go? We went into Jewish history.

00:16:32 --> 00:16:34

We went into people that were given the

00:16:34 --> 00:16:36

Torah, and they didn't carry it the way

00:16:36 --> 00:16:38

they were supposed to. Actually it's kind of

00:16:38 --> 00:16:40

like the way you would translate that is

00:16:40 --> 00:16:42

they carried it without carrying it.

00:16:42 --> 00:16:44

Because if you I didn't describe this to

00:16:44 --> 00:16:46

you at the time. Allah says

00:16:46 --> 00:16:48

the example of those who were given the

00:16:48 --> 00:16:49

burden of the Torah,

00:16:50 --> 00:16:52

then they didn't carry it. By the end

00:16:52 --> 00:16:53

of that sentence, did they carry it or

00:16:53 --> 00:16:54

did they not carry?

00:16:55 --> 00:16:57

They did not carry. But the example is

00:16:57 --> 00:17:00

not of a donkey that does not carry,

00:17:01 --> 00:17:03

the example is it of a donkey that

00:17:03 --> 00:17:06

does carry. So Allah is saying, It looks

00:17:06 --> 00:17:09

like He's carrying, but He's not really carrying.

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

He's carrying without carrying.

00:17:12 --> 00:17:13

You understand?

00:17:14 --> 00:17:16

So the lesson being taught was it may

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

here's an example of people that were given

00:17:19 --> 00:17:20

a book, now you've been given the Quran,

00:17:21 --> 00:17:22

people before you were not given Quran, they

00:17:22 --> 00:17:25

were given their own Quran which was called

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

tawrat.

00:17:26 --> 00:17:29

And they were supposed to follow a 4

00:17:29 --> 00:17:30

step process.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:33

But when they didn't follow that process, they

00:17:33 --> 00:17:35

still had the book, they were still carrying

00:17:35 --> 00:17:38

it, but not really carrying it.

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

So now that second section

00:17:40 --> 00:17:42

was actually there to give us a case

00:17:42 --> 00:17:42

study

00:17:43 --> 00:17:45

what happens when people stop carrying the book

00:17:45 --> 00:17:46

the right way.

00:17:47 --> 00:17:49

And then we were told, these people when

00:17:49 --> 00:17:51

you don't carry the book the right way,

00:17:51 --> 00:17:53

some problems happen. One problem that happens is

00:17:53 --> 00:17:55

you start thinking just because we have the

00:17:55 --> 00:17:56

book,

00:17:57 --> 00:17:58

Allah must really love us more than He

00:17:58 --> 00:18:01

loves anybody else. So no matter how bad

00:18:01 --> 00:18:02

we are, in the end we're still gonna

00:18:02 --> 00:18:03

go to jannah anyway.

00:18:04 --> 00:18:06

Right? And they developed that mentality,

00:18:06 --> 00:18:08

and if we become distant from the book,

00:18:09 --> 00:18:10

we will develop that mentality.

00:18:11 --> 00:18:13

The second thing that happened with them is

00:18:13 --> 00:18:15

they became really scared of death.

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

Like death was not a they didn't have

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

to love death but there was there's something

00:18:20 --> 00:18:21

that terrifies them.

00:18:21 --> 00:18:22

When

00:18:22 --> 00:18:24

you accept the world view of the Quran,

00:18:25 --> 00:18:27

then the first thing you realize is, Allah

00:18:27 --> 00:18:28

the first one of the first things Allah

00:18:28 --> 00:18:30

wants you to know is that you are

00:18:30 --> 00:18:32

at this timeline, you are in this place.

00:18:32 --> 00:18:34

Where did this story begin with Adam

00:18:34 --> 00:18:36

and where is this story gonna end? It's

00:18:36 --> 00:18:38

gonna end on judgement day in Jannah and

00:18:38 --> 00:18:39

now. Right? And you're in the midpoint.

00:18:40 --> 00:18:42

And what the Quran does is it makes

00:18:42 --> 00:18:44

you realize your life didn't start when you

00:18:44 --> 00:18:46

came out of your mom. Your life started

00:18:46 --> 00:18:47

at the time of

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

Adam So your life is pretty long, it's

00:18:49 --> 00:18:51

been going on for a long time. And

00:18:51 --> 00:18:53

you're in an episode right now, and there

00:18:53 --> 00:18:55

are next episodes coming. And now that you

00:18:55 --> 00:18:57

know where you came from, you have a

00:18:57 --> 00:18:58

better idea where you're

00:18:58 --> 00:19:01

going. So it changes your perspective about life

00:19:01 --> 00:19:02

and death.

00:19:02 --> 00:19:05

It changes the perspective of who you actually

00:19:05 --> 00:19:05

are.

00:19:05 --> 00:19:08

Where did your life begin? What's your identity?

00:19:08 --> 00:19:11

You know, what's your relationship with reality? It

00:19:11 --> 00:19:12

changes. And because that

00:19:13 --> 00:19:15

changes, the way you look at history changes,

00:19:15 --> 00:19:16

and also the way you look at the

00:19:16 --> 00:19:19

future changes. And then you no longer, you're

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

no longer terrified of the concept of death.

00:19:21 --> 00:19:23

You're not running from it, you're not trying

00:19:23 --> 00:19:24

to stay alive forever,

00:19:24 --> 00:19:26

you're not doing that anymore

00:19:26 --> 00:19:28

because you know there's a meeting coming. This

00:19:29 --> 00:19:31

your existence started with a meeting with Allah,

00:19:32 --> 00:19:33

and your existence at the end of it

00:19:33 --> 00:19:35

is also it also has a meeting with

00:19:35 --> 00:19:36

Allah.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:39

So where you began is where you're going

00:19:39 --> 00:19:40

to end up. This is why we say

00:19:40 --> 00:19:42

when a person dies,

00:19:45 --> 00:19:48

We are we belong to Allah also means

00:19:48 --> 00:19:50

we started with Allah and we're going back

00:19:50 --> 00:19:51

to where we started.

00:19:53 --> 00:19:55

The Quran says, the way He started you,

00:19:55 --> 00:19:56

you're gonna come back.

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

Okay?

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

So He's, you know,

00:20:02 --> 00:20:04

We will bring the creation back to where

00:20:04 --> 00:20:05

the where the whole thing started.

00:20:06 --> 00:20:07

This perspective

00:20:07 --> 00:20:10

now doesn't make me feel like I am

00:20:10 --> 00:20:13

terrified of death. It's just one chapter among

00:20:13 --> 00:20:15

many chapters that are coming. There was there's

00:20:15 --> 00:20:17

been many chapters before and there are chapters

00:20:17 --> 00:20:18

coming after, right?

00:20:19 --> 00:20:21

Now, so this is what happened with that.

00:20:21 --> 00:20:23

Now the final section of the Surah,

00:20:24 --> 00:20:26

it is now telling us

00:20:27 --> 00:20:29

if you don't want to fall into the

00:20:29 --> 00:20:30

same

00:20:30 --> 00:20:33

mistakes that were described in section 2,

00:20:34 --> 00:20:35

I'm going to give you a solution, this

00:20:35 --> 00:20:37

ummah. I'm gonna give you a solution

00:20:37 --> 00:20:40

that every time your relationship with your book

00:20:41 --> 00:20:43

and with this revelation is getting rusty,

00:20:44 --> 00:20:47

every few days later you will come together

00:20:48 --> 00:20:50

and you will restore your relationship with the

00:20:50 --> 00:20:51

Quran

00:20:51 --> 00:20:54

and with Allah and you will be reminded

00:20:54 --> 00:20:56

of a gathering that is coming which is

00:20:56 --> 00:20:58

judgment day. By the way, this is surah

00:20:58 --> 00:20:59

number 62.

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

In surah number 64

00:21:01 --> 00:21:04

Allah will call judgment day Yawmul Jamer the

00:21:04 --> 00:21:06

day of gathering Yawmul

00:21:07 --> 00:21:10

Jummah and this day the Friday prayer is

00:21:10 --> 00:21:10

Yawmul

00:21:11 --> 00:21:14

Jummah. The purpose of Yawmul Jummah is to

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

remind me at the end of every week

00:21:15 --> 00:21:16

of Yawmul

00:21:17 --> 00:21:18

Jum'ah.

00:21:18 --> 00:21:21

Okay. And in Yawmul Jum'ah, what do believers

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

do? They willingly come forward

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

in the presence of the reminder the word

00:21:26 --> 00:21:29

of Allah. What does judgment day? Humanity will

00:21:29 --> 00:21:31

come forward and Allah will speak to them.

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

Allah will speak,

00:21:33 --> 00:21:34

isn't it?

00:21:34 --> 00:21:37

And now the people who came towards Allah

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

willingly

00:21:38 --> 00:21:40

are going to be given light

00:21:41 --> 00:21:43

on judgement day. Now let's complete this imagery

00:21:43 --> 00:21:45

the way the imagery is being designed in

00:21:45 --> 00:21:47

these surahs. The first surah of the series

00:21:47 --> 00:21:50

of these surahs was surah number 57, Suratul

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

Hadid.

00:21:51 --> 00:21:53

And in Suratul Hadid Allah said a couple

00:21:53 --> 00:21:54

of really cool things.

00:21:55 --> 00:21:57

One of them related to Surat Al Jumwa

00:21:57 --> 00:21:58

is, I

00:22:03 --> 00:22:04

referenced this yesterday.

00:22:05 --> 00:22:07

He is the one who sends down on

00:22:07 --> 00:22:08

His slave, meaning Muhammad

00:22:09 --> 00:22:12

He sends down on His slave clear ayaat,

00:22:13 --> 00:22:16

clear miraculous signs from Allah. Meaning the Quran.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:18

He sends Quran on Muhammad

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

So He can pull you

00:22:23 --> 00:22:26

out of multiple shades of darkness into light.

00:22:27 --> 00:22:29

He can pull you out of darknesses towards

00:22:29 --> 00:22:32

light. Okay. So now the imagery is, if

00:22:32 --> 00:22:34

you're coming closer to Allah, you're walking away

00:22:34 --> 00:22:36

from darkness and you're walking towards

00:22:36 --> 00:22:38

light. Now by This is 62,

00:22:38 --> 00:22:40

in the surah we're studying. What does Allah

00:22:40 --> 00:22:41

say?

00:22:47 --> 00:22:49

Let me put this in other words, He

00:22:49 --> 00:22:52

goes through this 4 step process with you

00:22:52 --> 00:22:54

because He's getting you out of darknesses into

00:22:55 --> 00:22:56

like this is how He does it.

00:22:57 --> 00:22:59

This is so He's that's what was introduced

00:22:59 --> 00:23:02

in surah number 57 is now being explained

00:23:02 --> 00:23:03

in surah number 62.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:06

And here Allah says, And they were utterly

00:23:06 --> 00:23:06

lost. In kaluminqablu

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

lafiqbalalim

00:23:08 --> 00:23:10

Mubin They were utterly lost. Imagine the imagery

00:23:10 --> 00:23:11

of Musa

00:23:11 --> 00:23:13

when he was lost in the desert with

00:23:13 --> 00:23:15

his family, what was it that gave him

00:23:15 --> 00:23:17

guidance? He in the distance he saw what?

00:23:17 --> 00:23:18

He saw

00:23:19 --> 00:23:21

light, right? So we're in the darkness,

00:23:22 --> 00:23:24

we're in wadam, we're in wadaal and then

00:23:24 --> 00:23:27

Allah gave light so that we have direction,

00:23:27 --> 00:23:29

we have guidance. Now let's go back to

00:23:29 --> 00:23:32

surah number 57. Allah says, Judgment day will

00:23:32 --> 00:23:34

come and believers will wake up on judgement

00:23:34 --> 00:23:35

day and they're going to

00:23:36 --> 00:23:37

have

00:23:38 --> 00:23:40

They will have light coming from in front

00:23:40 --> 00:23:41

of them and from their right sides.

00:23:42 --> 00:23:44

They'll have light coming out of them.

00:23:44 --> 00:23:45

And

00:23:45 --> 00:23:46

this light,

00:23:47 --> 00:23:49

the one that's coming from us,

00:23:49 --> 00:23:51

from ourselves and from our right, is actually

00:23:51 --> 00:23:53

been described as the light of Iman, the

00:23:53 --> 00:23:55

light of faith from our chest, and the

00:23:55 --> 00:23:56

light of our good deeds

00:23:57 --> 00:23:58

by our right hand.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:00

Which is pretty cool because

00:24:04 --> 00:24:05

is here.

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

And

00:24:07 --> 00:24:08

is

00:24:09 --> 00:24:10

here,

00:24:10 --> 00:24:11

isn't it?

00:24:11 --> 00:24:14

And that's the light that we're gonna need

00:24:14 --> 00:24:16

on judgement day. Now that light in this

00:24:16 --> 00:24:18

life we have to preserve it.

00:24:19 --> 00:24:20

Okay. Allah says,

00:24:20 --> 00:24:21

(QS.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:23

3) At the end of suratul hadith He

00:24:23 --> 00:24:25

says, He will put a light for you

00:24:25 --> 00:24:26

that you can walk in.

00:24:27 --> 00:24:28

He'll provide a light for you that you

00:24:28 --> 00:24:31

can walk in. Now the whole and then

00:24:33 --> 00:24:35

later on, the same surah that calls judgment

00:24:35 --> 00:24:36

says,

00:24:40 --> 00:24:42

Believe in Allah, believe in His Messenger and

00:24:42 --> 00:24:45

believe in the light that We sent down.

00:24:45 --> 00:24:47

So now what is the light

00:24:47 --> 00:24:48

in

00:24:48 --> 00:24:49

Suratul Tahabun?

00:24:50 --> 00:24:52

The Quran. So there's a light on judgment

00:24:52 --> 00:24:53

day that I need to walk.

00:24:54 --> 00:24:56

The Prophet is pulling people out of darkness

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

into

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

light. And the Quran now itself is being

00:24:59 --> 00:25:00

described as

00:25:01 --> 00:25:02

light.

00:25:02 --> 00:25:05

And so this light can become weak.

00:25:06 --> 00:25:07

In human beings, it can become weak. So

00:25:07 --> 00:25:11

what did Allah do? He created multiple institutions

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

to

00:25:12 --> 00:25:14

re trigger the light.

00:25:14 --> 00:25:16

5 times of prayer,

00:25:17 --> 00:25:18

the 5 prayers,

00:25:18 --> 00:25:21

Allah describes the analogy of the person praying

00:25:21 --> 00:25:24

before Allah in Suratul Noor, funny enough, the

00:25:24 --> 00:25:26

Ayah or amazing enough, the Ayah of light,

00:25:26 --> 00:25:28

the passage of light.

00:25:28 --> 00:25:30

The believers chest is described

00:25:30 --> 00:25:33

as a niche inside of a wall. In

00:25:33 --> 00:25:35

old homes, they used to build a little

00:25:36 --> 00:25:38

kind of mihrab looking

00:25:38 --> 00:25:39

shape

00:25:39 --> 00:25:42

cavity inside a wall, you could put a

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

candle in it

00:25:43 --> 00:25:44

and the light hits the

00:25:45 --> 00:25:47

curved wall and the light spreads to the

00:25:47 --> 00:25:48

entire house,

00:25:49 --> 00:25:50

right? And that niche,

00:25:51 --> 00:25:53

Allah gave the analogy of that and said,

00:25:53 --> 00:25:55

There's a lamp sitting in that niche and

00:25:55 --> 00:25:57

it's spreading to the entire house. But that

00:25:57 --> 00:25:59

lamp that Allah or that niche that Allah

00:25:59 --> 00:26:01

was describing is actually the ribcage.

00:26:03 --> 00:26:04

And the lamp

00:26:04 --> 00:26:05

is actually

00:26:06 --> 00:26:07

the heart,

00:26:07 --> 00:26:10

the heart. And then the heart itself, Allah

00:26:10 --> 00:26:12

gave it light when He created us, but

00:26:12 --> 00:26:14

then Allah sent a new light, What's

00:26:14 --> 00:26:17

the light? The Quran itself and this outside

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

light

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

illuminates and lights it up and Allah calls

00:26:19 --> 00:26:20

that

00:26:21 --> 00:26:22

light on top

00:26:22 --> 00:26:24

of light. That's the analogy that Allah gave

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

us in Surah An Nuh. Now,

00:26:27 --> 00:26:29

having understood all of that, every time we

00:26:29 --> 00:26:31

come and by the way that's in that

00:26:31 --> 00:26:32

ayah,

00:26:35 --> 00:26:35

Interesting.

00:26:36 --> 00:26:38

Here you're gonna see, you know,

00:26:38 --> 00:26:40

and next night you're gonna

00:26:40 --> 00:26:41

see Everything's connected.

00:26:42 --> 00:26:44

There's really amazing intertextuality.

00:26:44 --> 00:26:45

He says,

00:26:45 --> 00:26:46

People

00:26:46 --> 00:26:50

who money or business and sales and trade

00:26:50 --> 00:26:52

does not distract them from remembering Allah

00:26:53 --> 00:26:54

and establishing the prayer.

00:26:56 --> 00:26:57

Establishing the prayer.

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

There are homes in which Allah has allowed

00:27:02 --> 00:27:04

that His mention should be made

00:27:05 --> 00:27:06

and they should be elevated. Which homes is

00:27:06 --> 00:27:08

Allah talking about?

00:27:08 --> 00:27:09

The masjids,

00:27:09 --> 00:27:11

the masajid. He's talking about the masajid.

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

Now

00:27:13 --> 00:27:14

when we come to Jum'ah,

00:27:15 --> 00:27:17

if you understand all of this imagery that

00:27:17 --> 00:27:18

I'm giving you of light and a faith

00:27:18 --> 00:27:21

and how that's gonna become turn into This

00:27:21 --> 00:27:23

is spiritual right now light right now. It's

00:27:23 --> 00:27:25

gonna tell it turn into real light on

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

judgment day.

00:27:26 --> 00:27:29

Where's actually gonna be real darkness, it's actually

00:27:29 --> 00:27:30

gonna be a light coming out of us

00:27:30 --> 00:27:33

on judgment day. Okay. So

00:27:33 --> 00:27:35

this coming to Jumuah is us

00:27:36 --> 00:27:38

trying to strengthen our what?

00:27:39 --> 00:27:40

Our our our light,

00:27:41 --> 00:27:43

to reinforce our light. Now when you stand

00:27:43 --> 00:27:46

in prayer every day, 5 times a day,

00:27:46 --> 00:27:48

you recharge your light a little bit.

00:27:49 --> 00:27:52

Okay? So in cars you need refueling everyday,

00:27:52 --> 00:27:55

but every every little longer you need an

00:27:55 --> 00:27:57

oil change, and a little bit longer you

00:27:57 --> 00:27:58

need a tune up,

00:27:59 --> 00:28:02

Isn't it? You should eat healthy everyday,

00:28:02 --> 00:28:04

but then every so often you need to

00:28:04 --> 00:28:05

go to the dentist,

00:28:06 --> 00:28:07

And then every so often more you need

00:28:07 --> 00:28:08

a full on cleaning.

00:28:09 --> 00:28:12

And every there's a there's immediate maintenance,

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

there's a little bit longer term maintenance and

00:28:14 --> 00:28:17

there's super long term maintenance, isn't it? What

00:28:17 --> 00:28:19

spiritual maintenance everyday for the Muslim?

00:28:19 --> 00:28:22

It's the 5 prayers. That's what cleans up

00:28:22 --> 00:28:24

the heart little by little. That's the daily

00:28:24 --> 00:28:26

detox little by little.

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

Then every week there needs to be a

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

major detox.

00:28:29 --> 00:28:30

Okay. Which is what?

00:28:31 --> 00:28:32

That's Jum'ah.

00:28:32 --> 00:28:33

That's Jum'ah.

00:28:34 --> 00:28:34

And

00:28:34 --> 00:28:36

what's amazing about Jum'ah

00:28:37 --> 00:28:38

is

00:28:38 --> 00:28:40

that if you study, there's only a few

00:28:40 --> 00:28:42

Khutbah's we have properly recorded of the Prophet

00:28:43 --> 00:28:44

And I have a theory on why that

00:28:44 --> 00:28:46

is. Most of the time even the Khuddah

00:28:46 --> 00:28:48

part he was just telling people Quran.

00:28:49 --> 00:28:50

He already knew that.

00:28:51 --> 00:28:53

He was just reminding of the Quran. Literally,

00:28:53 --> 00:28:54

you know he was gathering people,

00:29:01 --> 00:29:02

and Jum'ah was

00:29:02 --> 00:29:03

aya number 2 convention.

00:29:05 --> 00:29:06

It was a gathering of just living aya

00:29:06 --> 00:29:08

number 2 every week.

00:29:08 --> 00:29:10

Quran was being reinforced,

00:29:10 --> 00:29:11

Quran was being reintroduced

00:29:12 --> 00:29:14

to the community and Allah is telling us

00:29:14 --> 00:29:17

in this last section that if you maintain

00:29:17 --> 00:29:19

the spirit of the Friday prayer

00:29:20 --> 00:29:24

because again everything Allah gives us has a

00:29:24 --> 00:29:27

letter and has a spirit and preserving the

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

light inside is actually about the spirit of

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

it, isn't it? If you can preserve the

00:29:31 --> 00:29:34

letter and the spirit of the Friday prayer,

00:29:34 --> 00:29:36

you will not fall into the same trap

00:29:36 --> 00:29:38

that the people described in section number 2

00:29:38 --> 00:29:40

fell into. That's why you should take this

00:29:40 --> 00:29:41

very very serious.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:46
