Subhan Allah, this second set of the Quran, the middle 10 Jews, if you notice something, this is the portion of the Quran in which you draw closest to the prophets of Allah. And I want you to think about this for a moment. If you don't have a relationship with the Quran, what possible relationship are you going to have with the prophets of Allah other than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, meaning other than the Quran and the recitation of the sutras, especially some of these moments in which you see the prophets and their lowest point like Musa alayhis salam su casa so it's one of the hardest sections to read Subhan Allah when he fears for his life, and he's trying to escape towards
Medina, and how will you have a relationship with the prophets of Allah if you do not have a relationship with the Quran regularly, in any practical way? Now Subhan Allah, I want to translate this into something very significant, which is herbicidal him the love of the righteous because we're about to move into the last 10 jewels of the Quran as we get into the last 10 Nights of the Quran. And we can, you know, start to think about some of those themes that are very prevalent within the McCue Quran of Allah and the hereafter and things of that sort. Who beside the hand the love of the righteous and one of them in a somatic Rahim Allah to Allah when he was passing away. He
said something very powerful on his deathbed. He said, Oh Allah, I only have one excuse before you. He said Allahumma in Nicotiana, Mo, ne No, come to our sleek, come to help woman your Treyarch, 30 Dalek Corbett and Lee Lake. He said, Oh Allah, you know, that even if I used to disobey you, I used to love those who obeyed you. So let that be a means by which I come closer to you.
Oh Allah, you know that even if I used to disobey you, I used to love those people that obeyed you. So make that a means by which I come close to you. Meaning my only excuse at the end of the day, as I'm passing away is maybe I never reached where I wanted to reach but I loved the righteous people, past, present and even future from the past from the present from the future. From the future. The prophets exemplify that most were in the 15th millennium and what I mentioned Zachary it his salah, when he called out to Allah subhanaw taala and he was worried about the generations that come after him. And by the way, I'll make the clarification because one of the scholars actually reached out to
me about it, but is not a Adi that actually comes into the accepted corpus of Quran so lifted Murali Halford is a shove rewire it's not it's not an acceptable way to read it. But still the meaning is conveyed. Does that carry it is Saddam says I'm worried about those who come after me Mohammed sites and I'm says I'm worried about those who come after me. Ibrahim or Islam says I'm worried about those who come after me. So that's the love of the future. The love of the present, or liberal side of Hina want us to meet him and Andy Anala be him chef our Acropolis anti Jarrah tool Morales evil and goodness we will be looking at the saying of Imam Shafi Rahim Allah, where he said, I love the
righteous even though I cannot include myself amongst them, so that maybe I will gain their intercession on the Day of Judgment. So I try to accompany the righteous people, so that perhaps they will rub off on me and perhaps they can intercede for me on the day of judgment. And I hate those who trade and evil even if we have the same inventory even if I also find myself trading in sin and trading in the disobedience of ALLAH SubhanA to add, so the future, the present, and even the past. How much do you love the salah Hain the righteous that came before you? How much do you love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam? How much do you love the prophets which will be the
highest category of people in paradise and want to be with them? Then how much do you love the companions of the Prophet slice of them and seek a meaningful connection with each and every single one of them, you know, tomorrow in sha Allah to Allah are in a few hours, been denying to Allah. The next episode of the Janissaries is actually one of my favorite because all of the narrations of the Sahaba and Jana, the specific scenes of the Sahaba and Jana, some of you attend the first on a regular basis and you develop a connection to each one of them individually. So as you're reading the Sierra of the prophets lie Selim, you fall in love with Abubaker with Alma whether it's man with
Addy with Khadija without Isha one by one, you start to develop a meaningful connection. Think of the Quran as your gateway to a meaningful connection with the prophets that came before you. So who do you want your neighbors to be in paradise? Who do you want to ascend to the rank of think of those people? And finally, the moment Kodama Rahim Allah said herbicidal Hain is broken into two forms and it's very easy for us to remember who you are
I or to be and who you accompany who you aspire to be and who you accompany. So when you're reading about these people that came before you, or you see people in your own lifetime, that will the Allahu Anhu said Canady man Oh, mortality man, omo Hepburn OMA tambien be a scholar, a scholar or a student scholar. That's a new word. I'll think of that next time. So, a scholar or a student or a follower or a lover, a scholar, a student, a follower or a lover, but don't be of the fifth category. So love the righteous, aspire to be like the righteous, accompany the righteous. And then even if you fall short, on the Day of Judgment, you might find yourself in their companionship, as
that man who told the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam he also loved the only thing I feel like I've really prepared for the day of judgment is that I really love you. He loved the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and to madmen that the prophets lie some would have known if he was a hypocrite. And he was just saying that he said, No, you're with the one that you love. You're with the one that you love. And so it's a reminder as we come out of this portion of the Quran, that you have to revisit the sorrows of the only time you read Surah Yusuf is in Ramadan, and Surah passes is in Ramadan. What's your connection with Musa it is Salaam and with use of it his Sudan. These are
the stories that are meant to inspire you meant to guide you and also meant to connect you to the most beloved group of people that have ever walked the face of the earth collectively, the fraternity of the Gambia of the prophets of Allah, may Allah join us with them, and with our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and Al Bayt, his family and his Sahaba his blessed companions in the highest ranking of alpha dosa, Allah Allah I mean just like Malachite or sun I want to come on I'm sorry to cut
