as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Dear brothers and sisters, welcome back to the show that stopped with the end of Ramadan. And today we have a big surprise for you. Because apparently you remember we said shahara Madonna Lady winzeler fee for the month of Ramadan is the month when the Quran was revealed Subhana Allah so we always call the month of Ramadan is the month of the Quran. And jabril Allah Salaam used to come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to review the Quran with him every single month of Ramadan. So, what is the importance of the Quran and our life? What's the word for those who learn the Quran and then teach it? You know, we all know the hadith of
Marathi a lot and say Muslim, the best amongst you are those who learned and then teach it hydrocodone mentale. Lemon Khurana. Why lemma? So what's the surprise of today? Since we are resuming our young Muslim show, which will be at this time of the week inshallah. 630 to 715 inshallah, we're coming back with a very exciting
halaqa tonight in sha Allah. What's the surprise? I mean, I can, you know, keep cliffhanging, yo, because I'm hyped you like, early today, when we had time for the kids with the cron. The surprise is we have someone who is 13 years old. And Allahu Akbar, she has achieved something that we call a miracle 604 pages of a language that's not having a lot of time to memorize that. It's a big achievement.
the most important thing to know is
it's easy to achieve the top so to memorize the Quran is like, like achieving the top. But what's really more challenging is to maintain that top to keep, you know, memorizing the Quran. That's another challenge. So without any further ado, I would like to introduce to you the star of our halakhah tonight in Sharla. And I'm going to ask her to introduce herself in Sharla. She has been into a long journey of memorizing the bar, and she's here tonight to share with us her journey with the magnificent Book of Allah, the words of Allah.
So here we go, I'm going to ask
the hora Hussain to introduce herself. Welcome to our show. Go ahead. Said I'm on a commercial with the libre guy group. My name is Asha and I'm in grade eight. I am a half 100 and my goal is to be able to teach others as well as in accordance to hobbies that she has mentioned before. I recommend Allah Allah Allah, the rest of you amongst the best amongst you
and teach it to others.
Thank you so much for being with us tonight. So we're gonna go into our normal dialogue. It's a conversation. It's not something really formal, but we're going to have a conversation with Zahra as
as young as she is Mashallah. We look up to her as one of the leaders in our community and in our heads a program that we do here at the Saskatoon Islamic or Saskatoon down Community Center. We asked her help all the time, and she's always here with us to help with the younger ones memorizing the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala reward her and her parents say I mean, I'm asking to see I mean, I don't hear you, okay. I mean,
so we have some questions here that we need to ask Zahara, insha Allah so that we can benefit from that long journey of memorizing the Quran. It's not an easy task, of course to memorize, you know, the Book of Allah subhanaw taala. So, first question we would like to learn from your experiences. How long did it take you to memorize the Book?
The journey, my journey of soccer and actually began at the moment I started to talk because actually parents start to teach you build things from early on so small Sooners are like, the beginning of sociopathy and things like that. But to start with the proper started my journey.
It took about one year and a half, like less than two years, and then handed in two years. I finished the entire
Allah subhanaw taala Of course, just because I finished up for me to have one and a half years doesn't mean that that's the same for everybody. Some people struggle others don't. It's just a matter of fact of how much Allah smart Allah has blessed us, He has created us all differently and we all have different intellects and abilities. So it's up to the person and what Allah has blessed them with.
Mashallah, that's amazing. So for those who are sitting there listening to us, and they say, Man, one year and a half, is it that easy, it's not easy. But you have to have a commitment. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, as I just mentioned, he has blessed all of us, and He made us all unique in certain aspects. All what you need to do is to discover where the last part Allah has made you unique. And then you take it and your brushes, and then you can serve a law and then you can serve your family and you can serve your community and you can serve humanity at large Mashallah, because there is nothing more valuable, more effective, more important in our life, than the guidance coming
from Allah, you know, some people go astray in this life. But what's better for you than divine guidance? You know, but apparently, if anything goes wrong, of the things, the devices that we have today, what do we do? If something happens with with a phone, you take it to the manufacturer, you take it to the maker, you take it to the Creator, so if anything goes wrong with us, as the creation of Allah, where should we go, that's our manual, that's the forearm. So to memorize the Quran in one year and a half, it's a big achievement. So May Allah Subhana Allah make us to trust inshallah, in in keeping the heads for the memorization of the Quran. And we are lots of hands on with Allah bless
your heart, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has trusted with keeping the Quran and inshallah
but you know, in order to, to achieve such an achievement, you need to have some people behind this, you know, sometimes upon a lot, you know, it could be your own parents, it could be like a teacher. So let me start with asking you.
Sometimes the parents are a big motivation, sometimes the parents are a big support. So tell us like, what was the role played by your parents in helping you to memorize
The first thing I want to say is that my father, like the class that I went to, for full time, he had to pick me up and drop me off and give me up like twice a day, every single day. And that makes around like 20 times per week. And that went on for four something years till today. And that's not an easy job. To me, I lost my dad to listen for that, because it's hard work. Um, my mother, she's like, the behind the scenes person. She helped me sometimes when I thought that he couldn't do it. She used to set timetables and routines for me, even though I never usually ended up following them. She used to make lots every single time but I never followed any of them. In the end, she used to
listen to my lessons, like a lot of the times she would motivate me by telling me what what is happening to me because I'm memorizing the Quran. So
her source of motivation for me would be that I am memorizing, and I have to, I should have, I should think about, like all the words that I'm getting. So for every single letter, I'm getting 10 minutes, and I'm reading it over and over again, I'm struggling, I'm reading one page, like hundreds of times, and she tells me to think about how much words I'm getting. So I shouldn't feel all sad or depressed, but I can't do it, that I'm still getting rewarded for it. She says, a famous like something that I remember especially is she always tells me she would always tell me and she still tells me that memorizing the plan is not an easy job. Allah Subhana Allah only picks special people
that he has chosen and trusted to memorize the Book of Allah. So I should be, I should be happy and I should be grateful that he has chosen me and he has actually given me the topic to be able to memorize the entire thing because some people just can't memorize but it can be live demos the entire thing.
reward your pearls and
reunite you all in sha Allah in Jenna together in Sharla.
Great, so you see parents watching to hear that. So it could be a big motivation for your kids to memorize the Quran. And this is why we're sharing the story of Zahara today so that we can all learn from this. And it could be like a motivation or a role model for our team.
natures to have inshallah the motivation and the courage, you know, to embark upon that huge journey.
It's parallel to things that Zahra mentioned, they really touched me. The fact that she mentioned that support law. Her mom used to motivate her all the time. And she used to remind her of the fact that
what will keep you motivated to do this is the fact that there is a huge reward for every single letter and I'm not saying for every single word for every single ayah for every single surah no for every single letter as the librem is mentioned, in the Hadith narrated by both Bukhari and Muslim he said, Men para Hierophant apostle and said this whoever recites one letter of
men keytab Allah from the book of Allah, Candela Hobi hustler, he literally word for that,
well has unabashedly unfairly here, and then the word Look, this hustle is going to be multiplied 10 times or 10 times for a single letter. And then he said, la opodo. Alif Lam Meem? How will I can elevate elephant Harf lamb on half meme? And he said, I wouldn't say that Alif Lam mean is one letter. But elephant, one letter. Lamb is one little meme is wonderful. So imagine if you were to repeat after me now by saying, and if
he did you say that you made 30 bucks? I mean,
I know you think about dollars now. Okay, so imagine just reciting one page that would that you suppose for example, to be memorizing 100 times how many has an agenda, this is how we motivate our kids. Because most of the time, when you tell your kids, if you do this, I'll give you $10 they can kill themselves to get the $10. Right. But because they don't see those $30 that we made with a lot I mean, 30 has made with a lot in three seconds, is why they are not motivated. But when you give them that motivation,
second thing their level in general, what they will do to their parents, we're gonna talk about this later on inshallah, but what I'm saying is that we need to keep motivating them. And
again, it's a I'm amazed by such
an achievement, just like I love Arizona, you know, when when we when we do something like this, like 604 pages, a language that's not your mother tongue, I know that this is this is very challenging. So what are some of the challenges that that you have faced during the journey of memorizing the
first, this may not have been a challenge for me. But this is a challenge that many people may face is their struggle to read the Arabic language, because the first thing you need to do to be able to do hips is you need to be able to read the Quran properly and thoroughly, you can't have any mistakes, because that's going to affect your memorization. So for a lot of people, that's one of the biggest challenges for them is how to read local, and because they struggle with, they struggle with the letters and they struggle with how to pronounce it. And then that
I can't think of the word that like,
well, it makes them think that they can't really memorize because they're already struggling with simply 900 leads. So that wasn't a problem of mine, I was always a fluent reader. One of my challenges was memorizing, in general, because memorizing a whole page of a language that I do not know, I don't even know what it means it's hard. And I have to do it every single day. So that was the challenge of memorizing. And then the hardest challenge for me is remembering when in the minds because I always struggled with remembering, when I stopped revising something, I always forget it really quickly. So it's always a challenge to this day to remember every single thing that I have
ever read or revised. It's, that's a very big challenge for me, like one of the challenges that you have to maintain it in the end, it's hard to maintain, if you don't maintain it, it's going to go home. That's one of that's like one of the most well, like that's one of the most famous things that my teacher tells me and my class and my fears that you memorize, I want to add but this is like the beginning of your journey. When you finish memorizing that's not the end of a journey. That's actually the start of a different journey. And if you don't maintain it, you're gonna forget it and then there's no point in spending all those years if you keep on forgetting them, so you need to
work hard to remember.
And of course, like the way you learn the process, you learn to do it. You need to learn how to
You know, read the Quran like, perfectly with the with the rules of surgery, right? So and that reminds me of the Hadith by Yolanda and Sighthill Buhari, where she narrated that the prophets of Salaam said I let the owner who I met Harambee Massa for uncommon Bara, whoever recites the Koran, and they are reciting with the proper like rules of Tajweed. And they recited properly, they are at the rank or the level of the angels will let the after all Koran where the title fee who will who Allah He shot, but as for those who recite the Quran, and they start up because it's not their own language and they find difficulty in reciting it. They get to rewards look at the bounty of Allah,
what are the rewards the reward for reciting and their word for the difficulty in reciting Subhana Allah. That's, that's amazing. So, again, the process Salaam told us that the Quran tries to leave your heart to skip from your heart exactly like camels, when you tie them, they want to untie themselves and run away. This is how much you know, like, as I was speaking earlier, she said, You know, I wouldn't say it's easy to memorize, but you struggled in doing that that was a challenge. But what's more difficult was to keep a key memorized. Because you know, when you go through the memorization, and you repeat and repeat and repeat that handleiding memorize, but let's say you
finish one robot or one just and then you start the second just you need to maintain the first tooth. So you go back and say, Oh my god, like I forgot that I forgot that age, I have to work on it. So not only memorizing, but keeping the memorization that was another challenge. So this is for those who are embarking on the journey. So please, be patient be perseverant be committed. And Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is a beautiful Subhan Allah statement that zoras mother, you know, shared with her that was like a constant motivation.
If you are doing something good, remember, it's Allah who guided you. And what's more valuable than Allah subhanaw taala trusting your heart with his words. Not anyone will be getting that reward from Allah Subhana Allah, when Allah Subhana Allah cleans that heart to make it like a visceral, you know, where you can keep the Quran May Allah Subhana Allah, Allah bless all of our kids in sha Allah, Ki memorize the Quran. I know she has a younger brother, very sweet. His name is Abdullah he always calls me but he didn't call me today to say something in the you know, time with the kids for the Quran. He is very young Mashallah. But he has to bless his parents and a sister who was really
lost without her. Like the way he decides the Koran. It's melodious, like, you know, you want to sit down and listen to the way he recites like you know, exactly as we said, you know, well, who I met her on bass smoothly and perfectly with the hematologist and his very young. So I want you to be jealous of that. And we're going to come to this and so later on about where jealousy is permissible Islam in the good sense of the word. So now what I think I think it's time now to take us and embark in a ticket through the journey inshallah, of your memorization. How did it start and like, tell us about the journey itself.
In the very beginning, when I was small, and about two years old, obviously, she doesn't know anything like a baby at that age. My mom and my grandmother, they actually used to teach a few kids at our house. They used to like teach them the alphabet, and then eventually reading and memorizing a little bit. So I was always around like, I never read anything, but I was always near them. And when they move to Saskatoon, I was around for my mom. Like it was just my mom. Then she talked about, like a group of students at our house as well. And I was always around them. I never actually learned up around how do we do it by myself. My mom used to teach the kids and I was always like
playing or doing something I'm not sure why. But I was just a kid, obviously. And I'm from them, I learned how to defer. And my mom, she always considered this a miracle because she never actually taught me how to read the Quran. I just learned by myself, like somehow and then I was also a good reader too. And I finished reading the whole from the very beginning cover to cover by the time was back so
when I was five, I was done.
And then from there, my mom started teaching me a few stories, small stories from the JAMA. I finished about half Jews with her, almost three quarters actually like more than half and then from there, my mom sent me to the masjid. I used to go there too, but that only lasted for like a few months. I finished his offer and I
Little bit of just the night after that.
It was another three years of a different sort of journey, my mom, or my parents, actually they, they will.
After a few years, like after I was done reading in the masjid, and that was that didn't last very long. My, I used to read with some teacher like with a teacher in Pakistan to Skype. And that lasted for a few years, actually, I finished six juicers with him and hamdulillah. But the thing was, he was very poor, like, I did not remember any of it, because it was the same thing with how you're supposed to maintain it. I wasn't maintaining anything. So I used to memorize one surah. And then my teacher would make me read that sword to him. But then afterwards, I never get to again, for like, ever. And then I forgot it. And actually, for me, when I forget something, it's even harder than to
memorize. So when I was memorizing it's like a new thing. It's okay, it's a challenge accepted. But when I forget it, it's twice as hard. So it's really hard for me, at the start of grade five, like when I was 10 years old, I started full time texts with my teacher who I am still learning with right now, that lasted for while I was still with him. So that's like a matter of four years. But how did I finish really quickly with him, that took only two years, well, less than two years. And in two years, I finished the whole course. And then the next year, the next year, the next two years, I am revising with him. And I have finished the for an like almost two times, and I am on my
third. Well, actually, I'm still in my second because I forgot a lot of the parts because they haven't read them in a long time. So it's really hard sometimes. But that's where I am right now I'm revising with my teacher and
going to end this year, but my journey is not gonna finish. It's a journey that lasts forever. That's true. So it's not a journey for a month or two a year or two. It's something constant, as I said that the first challenge is to memorize. But the more challenging job is to maintain what you memorize, and this is why it's a constant effort of revising and reviewing and, you know, making sure that you you keep it in your heart, may Allah subhanaw taala help you
out of your experience I want you to, to share with with the viewers, like what do they need to be able to memorize the football, like, you know, like the commitment, the perseverance, how many times how much and like just the details? Well, first of all, both you and your parents, like your whole family need to be like they need to have a desire for memorizing the Quran. So it can't be that only your parents want to but you don't want it because you're the one who needs to memorize. And if they push you, it's not going to work. Because if you're not going to do it, you're not going to do it. Also, if you're the one who wants to do it, but your parents don't, then that's not going to work
either. Because you alone can't achieve that much as with your whole family. So both your parents and you must have like a strong desire to memorize the Quran, you need to have the right environment energy. So that's a very important thing. Because once you start hips, your life will be the core and it's going to revolve around the core and the core is going to be be with you 24 seven, you're going to have to meet it at home and return class, you're always going to have to think about it because there's always a worry of when you're going to read your your lesson for that day again, and then yeah, your life is going to burn the Koran. And if you don't have the right environment around
you, it's not going to work because you need to be focused on the Quran and the Quran alone. So if you're busy with other things, it's going to be really hard to do it. So you need to other environment,
you need to be consistent as well. That's also an important thing. Because if you want to do it and you're determined to do it, you need to do it every single day, even if it's a little bit because if you do a little bit and then you stop for a few days, you're gonna forget it. And then it's an elusive motivation you had before and it's not going to work. If you're going to do hips, you have to be consistent. You have to do it all the time. You need to have determination, as I said before, and a strong mindset that you're going to do it and you're not going to quit and you're not going to stop because the more I'm learning the Quran, it is difficult but it's not an easy thing to do. And
not everyone can do it but this if I'm local I will look at the external analytically for hunting decades. Allah subhanaw taala is himself saying telling us that we have made the Quran easy for you. Is there anyone who had to learn it so there is assurance from Allah Subhana Allah himself that he's going to help you if you if you're determined to memorize so if you have a lot of help you don't need anything else.
So amazing Mashallah. Here's you go, here you go. This is like a detailed plan inshallah for all of us and listen like your number one. It has to
come from you, you have to have the the determination that you want to do it. Second, yeah, your parents because, you know you will need support. But the first thing is the motivation should come from you first. So you have the commitment, the parents have the commitments, then the teacher in the environment, then putting the time and the effort, you know, always always, this is number one, check your intention, you're doing this to please Allah, because it's Allah will make it easy for you, you know, everything else on everyone else, it just helping, but if you have the pure intention that you want to do this to please Allah subhanaw taala as the beautiful ayah that you know, Zahara
mentioned, in our last class, I said, well, aka Dr. Sonal. For Honor, with the last month Allah has made the Quran easy for people to you know, to learn and to memorize, but for Hellman will take it. So it comes from you first, the new your parents, your teacher, the right environment, a commitment, the time, the effort, the perseverance, you know, like, rest assured, if you have the right intention, and you have all these elements are lost panthella will make it easy for you. But you know, most of the time when when I set a strategic goal for people and I asked them to achieve it, I always give them a motivation. When you look at you know, at some point, you feel like, Oh, this is
very difficult. You know, I think it's impossible luxury attire, kicks in your nerves kicks in, you know what, I'm still young, but all people around me, they're having fun, and I'm sitting there with Brian most of the time. So sometimes you come across some, you know, stumbling, you know, stops and and you feel demotivated, I'm sure that there were there was always someone or more than one who kept you motivated. Like, you know, you mentioned your parents, you mentioned your teacher, like, what role did they play when it comes to motivating you all the time and keeping you interested, whenever you feel down, they will push you. I mentioned my parents, but my teacher was also a very
My teacher who
was always there with us, he was teaching us he was listening to us. But obviously from time to time, he would give us some fun breaks. So he would tell us stories and that would like inspire us and most of the time, it was straight from the core. And so he would inspire us by telling us about what we are reading because we don't know what we're reading actually. So used to tell us the story right from the pages that we read to him like a mere few minutes ago. And that was even more interesting to listen to, because these are actual stories that happened. And you're learning about them, and you're memorizing them. And you can relate them whenever you want. Because now you
memorize them, and they're in your heart. Another thing he used to do as, as my mom did used to tell us about the benefits and the rewards, because let me know why were memorizing the class and all the things that were going, they were getting because of it, that just motivates us even more, because we want to know those rewards and benefits. And we are going to get them if you memorize the Quran. And whenever I used to feel sad or down or something, my teacher would be like, this is a hard journey. But you've already come this far. So what's a little bit more going to do to you. So we used to feel a bit better. And there's also this thing that sometimes very rarely, but sometimes my
teacher would also motivate us with prizes. So that was a very last cost sort of thing. So sometimes it was if you're able to memorize this much like two or three pages, and that is beyond your normal capability of memorizing, it would be like
he wouldn't give us money sometimes. So $5 and $10. And whenever he is dimensioned, that all of a sudden everybody's reading, like their full arm concentrating, they all want that prize. And sometimes it was just on Fridays, he would give us the candy. And that will just motivate us because of all of these kids and everyone loves candy.
And things like that. And sometimes it would give us things. So if you finished this much in this many days, you're going to get this and that doesn't work every single time but that's just like a once in a while so
that parents because I remember one time, I was asked to give a speech and in Vancouver, and it was that they have read and spent a lot there were like about 500 or five, about five to 600 kids there and they're coming do a read and everybody when they come in today read celebrating they want to have fun, right? They don't like coming to listen to lectures or you know, so they brought Baba Ali who's like a comedian from the States. I don't know if you're if you're familiar with him. He is a friend of mine. And then they wanted him to do something funny for the kids and they want me to give a speech to the kids. I'm like what? So I sat down with brother Ali mirrorless bless him, and I said
listen, let's act something together and listen
It's funny. So we want to send a message to the people by maybe like, like doing a skit or something together, and suppiler we improvise on the way just to the event. And I said, let's do this, I'm going to call for a kid. And then I'm going to keep asking a bigger kid advocate until you raise your hand and I'm going to get you to the, to the stage, and then I'm going to activate it. And that's exactly what we did. Here's what we did. I just wanted to show them how to motivate your kids to pray. And I did two scenarios. first scenario, I was playing the role of the harsh, tough dad. And in the second one, I was the nice that. So the first thing when I said, I need a young kid to
come here, and you know, all the kids like five to 600 kids in front of you, everybody wants to come to the stage. So and I said, No, no, no, somebody who's bigger than that somebody and then in an alley was sitting amongst them acting as a as a kid. And I said, Yeah, I think I'm gonna get that big one. And then I got added to the stage. And then, of course, we agreed to do this. So I started saying, you know, we're gonna print out your photo. And I'm like, Yes. I said, Okay, come stand next to me, and I want you to pay properly. It's like, Okay.
And then I started the Salah, and he was looking at me during the Salah, because he doesn't know how to pay and you're so scared of me because I'm playing the tough dat. And like the moment I went to record, he was like doing record and he was looking at me. And then the moment I went to sujood he ran away because now I can see him. And that was the end of the first scene just acting, the tough dad and the impact on the on the kid. You know, like you're scaring him as if it were coming, forcing him. Remember what I said that was very deep, but I don't know if you noticed it or not. You said it has to come from you. If they push you are going to work. It has to come from you. So I need
to motivate you and make you love Allah if you love Allah gonna do everything for a lot, not for me. I'm just a means. So the second scenario, I said, Okay, I'm gonna do it the right way now. So first of all, I said, Hey, son, and then I gave him a hug. I said,
Are you willing Charla to? You know to go to a long talk with him? He's like, yeah, I said, What do we mean by that is it's a lie. It's a connection between us and Allah. Will they be praying? I love praying. I love talking to him. I said, let's go and do it. Just like of course. And they said, Okay. Listen, would you like a gift or a prize after we finished? Yes. I said, What do you like most? Is it chocolate? I said, Here you go. I got a chocolate from my pocket. And I always do this. Even the kids who have they know like about my candy system. And I showed him the chocolate is like no, would you give it to me now? I said no. After you pray properly. It's like, Okay. Then we prayed
and Mashallah he prayed perfectly with me. And after we finished the moment I said, Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah. So like, I said, what I said the candy promised me the chocolate. I said, Here you go. And I gave him the chocolate. One of the brothers approached me after the stock for last year had this shirt. It's like, what is shirt man? He's like, you know, he prayed for the candy. He paid for the chocolates, like you know, calm down, brother. He's supposed to be a kid. Like, I'm not talking to Ali who's
as tall as me. I'm acting as if he's a kid. So if you motivate your kid with giving them candy, well, what he does is not sure because you act and you work on getting them to lock a lock.
And this is
not going to make sure you go to the chocolate brother. Don't take it like don't go to the extreme. So this is some sort of as we heard from
Zahara, money could be a way just to give them money. If you if you do this, just inshallah I'll give you like, you know, $20 I'll give you $50 Why not? Why not it's a motivation. You know, I'm gonna buy you you know, like something that you would like and buy here a gift, buy him a gift, so motivate them. So this is going to take me to one of the most important question in our conversation today. Which is what really keeps motivating a person to memorize the Quran even though the parents could remind you the teacher could remind you but if you share with with our viewers, many of those so Pinilla, huge rewards by Allah subhanaw taala. For somebody who embrace the power not only for
him, but for his parents and for whoever taught him inshallah, just to keep people motivated.
Actually, a lot of thoughts and benefits. It's not just like one thing, there's lots of things and most of what I'm going to get all of this. So the first one is that the half is or the half is, are they going to have the highest strengths in general? So it's because of, I'm sure there's a hadith that that you
can say, if
you're going to have a day of judgment, a lot of data is going to tell you to read and
Well, you read your rents in July, they're just going to rise and rise. And they're going to stop in the very last idea that you have memorized. Yes, exactly. That's exactly the hubby. He just translated
your piano, not even just a memorizer, like whatever. He said, Well, you ponder who we're talking, like, recite and go higher and rank for in them and zeylanica in the acid is in front of you to start us with a lost battle. In general, you rank agenda will be with the last first that you decided in the junior. So that's, that's a very big motivation, go ahead. And if you memorize a whole quarter, and you're going to have the highest strength and gender. So the second one is the parents of the half isn't too happy. So they're going to be honored under the agenda on the day of the day of attachment with a crown on their head, and that crown is going to be brighter than the
sun, and they're going to be working, they're going to be given garments to wear and they're going to be the garment agenda. And that is a very big honor for the parents because on that day, the parents are going to ask a lot of paradigma for what reason we given this honor, why are we wearing these crowns, and it's going to be told to them that is because your children, they memorize the Quran, and that is
a very big load for the parents. So another point is the half is in the half is that they are worthy of envy in this world. So the sheikh mentioned this before, but he said you'd come to this later. So I think now's the time. Excellent is the time that the prophets of Allah Salim said in the Hadith,
la hacer the 11th metate. You know, there are two scenarios already can be envious of someone in the good sense of the word because jealousy or envy normally means like when you see somebody blessed with something that you wish that Allah, Allah will take it away from them. And sometimes it's called Raj hepped. You know, but has that means like you You wish that Allah will take it away from them. Like even a worse like scenario of Hassan is like you know, you want a lot to give it to you to take it from them and give it to you. But the problem said, you can be envious or jealous of someone in the good sense of the word meaning you wish that Allah subhanaw taala will keep blessing
them with that blessing, but you wish that Allah Subhana Allah will bless you with the same. So this is the meaning so he said, Roger, don't enter Hello, hold on for a little later on. I'm somebody that Allah has blessed with memorizing and understanding the Quran and he keeps reciting the Quran, you know day and night. So you can be envious, you know, meaning that you wish that Allah, Allah will bless you with the memorization of the Quran. And that's the first degree second degree is to understand the third degree is to act upon the Quran. fourth degree is to take the message of the Quran to others and to devour and the fifth degree is to seek healing through the Quran, and that's
what brought him a lot. You know, when he commented on the ayah what the last part that I said insulting for counsel number 25 and number 30 we're a lot smarter. I said,
What on earth sudo Yara be in Tomita her do
and the messenger so Salam said, Oh, my, my master, my people have deserted the Koran, which means like, you know, it's you know, it's like deserting the Koran, meaning abandonment of the Quran epinal py and Rahim Allah said that's five degrees, the least of which is to abandon or desert, the recitation of the Quran. So if you know how to recite the Quran, if you memorize the Quran, that's step number one, because there's going to be a plea for you or against you on the Day of Judgment. Then second, you need to understand what you memorized, you need to reflect third once you understand it's incumbent on you to act upon the Quran because Allah Blaine some people and this is
an idea that you should be memorizing the Koran. And so number 62 I number five, he said, method ladina hung middle toe rothermel ambia middle hakima sorry, mrea middle as far as the similitude or the likeness of those who are given the Torah, the book that was given to Musa alayhis salaam, you know, and they did not act upon it because you know, Allah gave us the Quran not just to read it or memorize it. I should understand what's in there and then I should act upon it a lot better said why Allah just says do not spy on one another while
not back back to one another. This is for us. So I'm not just reading something and I'm going again, I'm going to come on today Jasmine, and a spy and a lie and I have a backbone I was gonna say okay, you were just like getting your book on your back without benefiting from it. Allah said these people who are given the Torah and it will act upon it is like a donkey carrying books on its back.
What is the benefit of the donkey will make out of books on its back. So as Muslims also we cannot put the product on the shelf for 11 months. And then Ramadan comes we pick the we we pick the front
recite it and then put it back for 11 months. That's that's what it's meant. So that's the meaning of Allah has visited someone with the Quran memorizing the Quran, you know, and then they recite the Quran and they act upon the Quran they ended. And the second one is somebody last month Allah has blessed with wealth and he spends that wealth and money for charitable causes to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you can be inverse of that what so you say, may Allah Subhana Allah bless this person, keep his foot on in his heart, may Allah bless this person keep their wealth, you know, and their money. But yeah, Allah give me you know, the ability to learn the Quran memorized the Quran,
like that person. That's the meaning of jealousy. Yeah, like give me wealth. And if I get wealth, I'm going to be acting in that money like that person to inshallah. So that's the meaning of the Hadith. Go ahead, and shall I continue with the rest of the rewards, and benefits.
Another one, another one is, we mentioned this in the very beginning, almost, I think, is for every single letter, you're getting 10 minutes. And eventually, if you read the whole time, you're going to get hundreds and 1000s of comments like uncountable on your last count it himself knows how much you're getting in the end. And it's not like you're reading the Quran only once, you're going to read it again and again, until you die. And your husband I just keeps on piling up. Another word is that
the person who struggles he's going to have double the road efficient mentioned before, because the person who goes on and besides smoothly and nicely, he's going to get the rank of angels, he's going to be as high as them, but the person who struggles they're going to have two words, one for struggling, and one because it's difficult. Another one, another also very important word I think is that half is or the half is that they're going to be saved from the fire because there is this hadith that says that if supper is enclosed by skin, which means that if a human being or if a person and my sister and it's inside them, they're going to be protected from the fire because
Allah, Allah is not going to burn something that has an inside it. So if we memorize the whole Quran, and we put it inside our hearts, then we can
we can be safe in the fire because Allah, Allah has reassured us of that. Another thing is that fires are the half is half is up, they are guaranteed genda like they're guaranteed genda as long as they act upon what is lawful, and they stay away from what is forbidden, forbidden. So those are simple things if you just act upon it, and you know that you're like, guaranteed and just like that. So let's take a look at to conclude with this, we're just going to ask you one last question is can you give some
pieces of advice or words of advice to people who are willing to embark on this journey after listening to your journey with the Quran today inshallah, at this young age, whether they're young or old, what some words of advice would you give them. Um, first of all, you want to make dua to Allah Subhana Allah to help you in this journey, and to seek His help whenever you come to any difficulty, because these are his words, and he alone can teach you that he is the one who can help you memorize. Never underestimate the power of the Institute, that is a very important thing that's going to help you. You should never underestimate that power, because it works like I've done it
before. And it has worked. And yes, it has helped me. Secondly, you need to believe in yourself and always stick with remembering memorize, even if it's a little bit because even if you did memorize the entire course, you still have a chance to do it on the Day of Judgment with the horrifies because of your because of your hard work and effort and because you struggle to memorize until you die. So Allah subhanaw taala it's almost upon us like he's done watching us even though we didn't even complete it. Some kids and people in general find the idea of memorizing the Quran as a big and difficult thing. They are sometimes scared to start because they think that the Quran is very long,
they think that it's a lot. And they think that 30 years is is like a lot of things to memorize, and the cat do it that when you actually think about it, it's just 30 like it's not 50 or something, it was $50 and way harder.
People think that dedicating your life to them, it means that you have to sacrifice all forms of entertainment. And that's not true. I had fun while doing it. And I didn't sacrifice any fun for it.
Yeah, I was like lucky. Thank you so much for your time and thank you for sharing this beautiful and amazing journey with us. And I would like to just to conclude with this. The prophets of Salaam said in the LA Hayato we had a look at the acquirement well the OB offering so Pamela because of this book because of the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala raises the rank of some people and he puts some people down look at the elite of marketing
At the time, to whom the Quran was revealed and they were masters of the Arabic language. And they know deep inside that these are the words of Mohammed Salim. These are not the words of a human being they know that this is these are the words of Allah subhanaw taala. Yet a Buddha Buddha had the big shots of Mecca, they would put down when they rejected the Quran, but a blind man like up to like a woman to whom memorize the Quran, what happened to him at the end, the prophecy Selim, you know, whenever he used to travel out of Medina, he will assign him to be the map, Allahu Akbar, like look at somebody who's like this in our community that because of the Koran, he was the leader of
the among the population was quite away. And I just want to end up with this smile. Imagine I've lived in MoMA tomb, for which one sort of was revealed because of him when he came to the capsule and one day and the person I'm sitting with the big shots of Mecca, and he said, Yeah, Mohammed had destiny. I'd love to call Mohammed teach me about your Lord, teach me about Allah subhanaw taala. And all what the processor did is like this Look at me, if round, return to space away. And that's Ibiza. And that's the one that he turned his face away. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed a sort of pulsar at Ibiza. He said Ibiza, and this blind man in this surah is Abdullah McCune. I just want to
end up with this scene image of doom. When the processor was away from Medina and he's leaving the salon he spraying Madrid and after he said, why he didn't moto la Mola. Pauline, I mean, I guess I wetter well, then he finishes the Salah. He turns back to the to the people and say, What did I did I decide in memory today and everybody's gonna say so what I was like, you know, why was was why was this sort of reveal? It was because of me. It's about me. How would you feel at that point? So pan Allah, Allah subhanaw taala trusted the heart valve to let them open because he was sincere. But he did not trust the heart of Abuja, even though he was a big shot. So this is a big lesson for all of
us. Please help your kids to memorize the Quran. embark on the journey, whatever your age is, I have a friend of mine who memorize the Quran in one year and a half because he was a salesman and he had to put on on in his power all the time. You know, review and review and tell him memorize the Quran and money. It's not easy, but it's not. It's not impossible. Here is someone who was 13 years old and Masha Allah she's a half as a male love this her and her parents. be envious be jealous of her in the good sense of the word. Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
