So what is the benefit of learning that allows preference that he's assigned to add the mighty Simon his children, is a result of the knowledge that he's given to them and that knowledge is greater than a bad is greater than worship and so on so forth. It teaches us that Allah created us with a purpose. That purpose is knowledge and acting upon that knowledge and there's a very interesting note here. Allah says in the poor an outer world man he introduces himself subhana wa tada the Most Merciful out. Then Allah says Allah or an he taught the poor and then Allah says holla called insert He created man. Then Allah says, I lemme Hold on, he taught him expression. If you notice here,

00:00:58--> 00:01:37

Allah mentions First, the first favor upon us the first favor of the Most Merciful is that he taught the Quran, even before our creation. In my little came a lot to it. He also points out here he says, notice that a lost contact does not say holla palparan that he created the but instead of our lemon court and he taught the plan, which is a very significant point in our creed, that Allah subhana wa tada he has spoken the poor and the Quran is the word of Allah subhanaw taala. And it's not a creation of Allah subhanaw taala. Now, we take a few lessons from this order here, number one, that the poor man is more important and more noble than the creation of men. Subhana Allah, it's that

00:01:37--> 00:02:16

high, it's that elevated. It is that honored and that noble, that is even mentioned before the creation of men as if to say there would be no purpose for the creation of men, had it not been for that guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two that Allah subhanaw taala did not create men without guidance, right? You were not created without purpose. You were created for something very clear. And that's why even the last pantile when he mentioned us when we come out of our mother's wombs, Allah subhanaw taala says asuma sebelah Yes, sir, that Allah guided him to the path and that has a double meaning, which is that Allah subhanaw taala guided him out of his mother's womb, so he

00:02:16--> 00:02:55

he made your pregnancy easy. And the second thing that Allah subhanaw taala guided you to the spiritual path to the path that you should be on the path of knowledge and the path of worship and so on so forth. And in that is actually a response to to agnostic, agnostics, or skeptic theists or whoever they may be those that would claim that there may be a god, that or that there surely isn't God, but that God created us without purpose and that we don't know what God wants of us and that God has not sent messengers or messages and so on so forth. What would be the point of Allah Subhana Allah of a god creating all of this without guidance so the mama says to him Allah, he actually

00:02:55--> 00:03:36

comments on the order and so it's a little human. He says how the turtle tea blend routes Abby, when they say Walesa total TV zamanian, that this is that this order that allows mentioning here, is one of benefit is one of priorities. It's not one that is chronological, because could we say that Allah subhanaw taala taught the Quran before He created man know who to teach the Koran to right before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the mama CLT is saying, Allah is pointing out something very important here, a la Mariner, they will do insert Him and do any manhood genius hero, Allah He that there is no point for the existence of man without a methodology that he should that he could

00:03:36--> 00:04:09

proceed upon, to gain the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala that the Quran is a greater gift than creating you because had Allah created you without knowledge without purpose and knowledge of that purpose, then it would have been absolutely miserable. And that's why you find people become miserable in life, when they don't know why they're here. You know, you ask someone that the basic question, why are you here? What's your purpose? What's your calling? And when you can't answer that, then you're absolutely miserable. Because you want to know why Allah subhanaw taala put you here in the first place. So a lot taught you the Quran, and before creating you he had a purpose for

00:04:09--> 00:04:43

you, and he had guidance for you and Allah Subhana Hood's Allah created you within the framework of that guidance and of that purpose that Eliza Jen mentions that he taught you how to express yourself. And expression is one of the greatest gifts of Allah subhanaw taala. And that's why we find that you know, one of the most frustrating things and one of the most difficult trials that a person could go through in life is that they're unable to express themselves even medically speaking, you know, if a person is in a coma, and they're responsive, or they know what's going on around them, but they're unable to express themselves or if they have a permanent condition where

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

they're unable to speak properly, or express themselves. It's a great blessing of Allah subhana wa tada that he gives to a person when he allows you to clearly know how to express yourself. But notice, by the way that Allah mentioned expression after knowledge, which goes to the previous point that you should not express

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

yourself without knowledge, don't speak without knowledge first comes in, then comes back first comes knowledge, then comes speech. Now the most beautiful thing that we can take from all of this and this is the greatest lesson that I would take from this personally and that I hope that all of you would take is that you know a lot truly has assigned our nobility as his creation, to the amount of knowledge that we gained and we act upon. That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says hadal comenta element or an element, the best of you, the most noble of you, as human beings are those that learn the Quran and then teach it, the prophets lysozyme also says and the public enemy

00:05:37--> 00:06:15

and an avid dk dynochem, that the preference of the scholar to the worshiper is like my preference, my status over the lowest of my own. So Allah has preferred the people of knowledge who act upon that knowledge that don't just learn but actually embody that knowledge to people who merely worship Allah subhanaw taala that's where their nobility is, and particularly their knowledge of the Book of Allah subhana wa at the end, and you can't learn the Quran without knowing the sin of the prophets lie Selim and living like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam trying your best to emulate that. And that's who you are as a person. That's where you measure yourself, you know, on the scale of

00:06:15--> 00:06:51

purpose, am I living up to what Allah subhana wa tada wants me to be? Am I fulfilling the purpose for my very existence and for my very creation, and we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us amongst those that are proceeding upon that proper methodology to gain his pleasure and live up to their purpose.
