I'll be speaking on the topic of virtues of the memorization of the holy book.

law has promised to preserve
the integrity and sanctity
of the Koran.
And for the past 14 centuries, we've witnessed the miracle of granting preservation.
And the unique method which Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen for the health, the guarding, and the preservation of his verses, is memorization.
And not even by scholars,
but by millions of children across the world.
And this tradition of people memorizing the Quran from the beginning till the end,
which is a miracle in itself. And I'll elaborate on this in the subsequent talk.
This miracle and this method of memorizing
is not new.
It stretches back all the way to the sort of law civil law and he was

last panel who

when you believe any salon would meet.
the whole Quranic system is very different.
The operation, the people of Makkah, demanded of the Prophet sallallahu it was that he produced a book for them that they could read whose pages they touch, and flip
and that they could find between two covers.
These made this very specific demand of the profits in the long run he was telling him if you produce a book, we will believe.
And despite their repeated requests, a last panel with data never revealed or an in the form of a book, or even on paper.
When he did his Ratan Medina,
the people of Medina made exactly the same demand.
produce a book show as a book.
Bring down a book from the sky that we can read, that we can touch. Again, Allah resolutely refused to reveal a book in
banned form or unpaid
both in Makkah and Medina
throughout the province of the law, it was a Lim's years of calling
for the 23 loony is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not receive one letter.
In ink on paper,
he received only through gibreel Allah Hassan to his heart.
And that began with the very first words of the Quran in the cave of hell, when gibreel alayhis salaam hooked and crushed him.
And then he recited to him.
Following on whenever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would meet the Djibouti daddy his Salaam
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his eagerness to memorize the verses
and out of fear of maybe forgetting or losing some of the verses, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would silently repeat after Djiboutian na his salon once he was reciting
moving his lips
although it's no comparison for the purpose of our understanding.
It's a very crude example. But what if someone's reading out their number to you? We normally repeat and our breath and we move our lips accordingly. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whilst gibreel alayhis salaam was reciting the Quran to him, he was listening, but at the same time, to make sure that he wouldn't forget it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite the words silently moving his lips. Any man will hardly ever have to learn a
receiver mentions from Abdullah hub my bus or the Allahumma
who says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would
recite under his breath and repeats and he would move his lips
to ensure that he wouldn't forget. And then Abdullah hidden our bus of the alohar in Houma, said, I will move my lips as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam moved his lips. So then ignore a burst of the alarm I demonstrated to his students and as listeners that this is how the prophets will love it, who sent him would move his lips.
And his student, the one who writes these from him Um, so either in the job a lot. He when he related this Hadeeth to history, he did the same, he said, I will move my lips just as if not bass moved his lips to demonstrate how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam moved his lips and then obeyed him Allah moved his lips, the narrator's from him did the same. And so until today, so this is a practice which is very common, whenever the LMR of Hadith relate this Heidi, of Abdullah, my boss of the Alabama, they also demonstrate with their lips. And this demonstration itself is a continuous, uninterrupted demonstration, stretching from us from me all the way to the sort of last
and the last mile equals hilum, just as the words of the far so this is how he would move his lips.
So our last panel with Anna told him what a third jelly bill or animal cobbler and you're
the Messenger of Allah, do not haste. Do not rush with the Quran before its revelation is completed T.
And then a lot as at the end, we'll call Rob visit the ilma and say, oh my lord, increase me in knowledge. So in response to his eagerness, last panel with Anna told him, pray to Allah, that he increases your knowledge, because undoubtedly, you have shown your zeal and your eagerness, but law told him Do not rush. Do not haste in your recitation. Rather what should you do? law says
in another sort of law the hedonic behavior sonica literature Libby in Allina Yamaha Cora Cora, Cora summit nadina.
Allah says, messenger of a lot. Do not move your tongue
So that you may rush or hasten with the Euro
Don't worry. In Marlena Jamal who work for
the preservation or the collection of the or am I in your heart
in Allina Jim Roku AV subsidy,
the collection and the gathering of the
in your heart, this is our responsible
walk earner. And it's correct recitation is also our responsibility for either karma. So when we recite its meaning, when gibreel alayhis salaam recites that on our behalf, for the bit earner, then you follow his recitation for me natalina Briana, then, indeed, the clarification and the exposition of the Quran is also our responsibility. So the words of the arm have come from Allah,
the meaning of the Quran has come from Allah, the recitation of the Quran has also come from Allah. This is why one of the miraculous aspects of the Holy Quran is that
the pronunciation of the aura, the intonation, the pronunciation, the tone,
the emphasis, all of these features of recital are uniform across the world.
all over the world, for instance, in the instance of continent,
there's a phrase which says that after every 12 villages, the language changes.
So after every 12 villages, the language changes in parts of Europe,
traditional traditionally, not now, but traditionally, in parts of Europe.
There was a saying that every Valley in some of these more mountainous regions, and Every valley had its own dialect.
So we're not talking about accents, we're talking about dialects, we're talking about
actual changes in the wording and the vocabulary and the usage of the words. So language is a very evolving thing. And if that's true for vocabulary for dialects, for style, and even more so for accents.
Almost every city has its own accent, every region has its accent. In fact, in one large city, different areas may have their own accents,
and even received official Received Pronunciation that changes. So if you go back to recordings of official news broadcasts in this country, go back to the archives, and listen to
Received Pronunciation 10 years ago, and then 10 years before that, and then 10 years before that, go back a decade, and just over the last century, you will be able to see and observe how distinct the accent is even in official Received Pronunciation
almost every single decade.
But when it comes to the Holy Grail, when it comes to the guitar, when it comes to the Jui, you will find a child in the deserts of Arabia, or in the grasslands of Africa, or even in the steppes of Asia, or even in jungles of the world. Regardless of whether they may be in the east, west, north south, they will recite Surah Fatiha exactly the same.
And we're not just talking about the words, the actual acts. Why Why do we find this uniform that we need? And this uniform pronunciation and intonation when it comes to the thilawa and the recitation of the Quran.
It hasn't changed from region to region from decade to decade, not even century century.
Why because last panel without essays in this verse or messenger of Allah, do not move your tongue so that you may rush with the Koran. Why in Marlena jamara who
and then later from in there, Alina Brianna losses all three things are our responsibility to collect the core earning your heart to read
cite the Quran ie the way it should be read and the exposition and clarification of the Quran. All of these are our response.
So do not fear. What should you do? Allah says, Listen attentively and silently to the property Jubilee.
Elisa, once figured out Parana, once we have read it, meaning when gibreel alayhis salam has finished reciting the Quran on our behalf, and you have been silently and attentively listening without moving your tongue without moving your lips. Then for who and you follow his recitation.
And do not worry in Allina Jima, the collection IE of the or owning your heart is our responsibility. So Allah subhanahu wa.
Sainz, that we will make you a half
to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and thus, he is the first half of of this. He is the one who initiated the Sunnah and tradition and this practice
is how about the alarm became happy after him. And this tradition has continued till this day, and it will undoubtedly continue.
And in increasing numbers. So one of the first virtue of memorizing the whole report in its entirety, or at least as much as possible, is that this is a summary of the prophets.
A lot of promise to make him happy.
And this method of memorization,
people when they want to memorize cards, numbers,
you have memory athletes the performance, so they devote their energy and attention and their skills,
to just memorizing for sports display, to exhibit their memory skills. They are very, very few.
And that's why they are all the more remarkable. But they trained to do this. And they develop all kinds of mnemonics and tricks to memorize.
But with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and with the oma of Islam,
the tradition, the method hasn't changed in this day and age of technology, of computers of audio visual learning materials.
The method of memorizing the arm is still the same, not just as 10 years ago or the last century, but it's exactly the same
as existed between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and gibreel alayhis. Salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala told the Prophet sallallahu wasallam let gibreel read. You listen attentively and silently, do not repeat along with him. Once he has finished his recitation. Then you recite you follow his recitation. So Djibouti, la Salaam would recite the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would listen, then he would recite, and in every mclubbe and in every classroom across the world, this is how teachers still educate their children and handle and handle the law. The law are below the mean or below the mean. So the teacher resides, the student listens and follows a teacher's recitation.
This in itself is a Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Djibouti Danny.
So he was the first half of
this is the first fish.
provinces Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam would
receive the or propagate it, and he would recite it as much as possible. And then each Ramadan as a man mojari La Jolla relates from I'm delighted
that the Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam was the most generous and kindness to people.
But the one time when he was even more generous than normal, when he was the most generous, was in Ramadan, when he would meet God a Salah
for you that is so called Cora. And he would revise the Quran Majidi place
and this is why
They will do so each Ramadan the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would gather would meet up with gibreel in a salon, one would recite the Quran, and he would listen, the other one would listen and the one then the other would recite, and the other would listen. And they would both read to each other, as much of the poor man has had been revealed to them, and he would meet with gibreel alayhis salam on a daily basis. Again, this is a practice which has continued till this day, all over the world. Not only do Muslims recite the Quran,
in that are we
and people listen to the orar and they prefer reciting the Quran in surah tarawih. But during the day, you may have noticed all over the world, whether it's an administrator haraam homage to the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or a mustard in the village, in any part of the world, you will see
often two students, one reading and the other listening and then the other reading and the other listening. This is known as door on wood, and wood Arosa. Again, this is a practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and gibreel alayhis salam, as part of that HIV and memorization.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us to hop out of the alarm and to memorize. So how about the alarm? Did they would learn or memorize it, master it, its words, its recitation, its meaning.
And the people amongst us how battle the alarm, who memorizes of the poor and they will hardly ever called half of this is a later term, they were all known as Ra. So if you come across any original Islamic material in the Hadees, and it mentions RT.
and Iran in reference to this harbottle de la one, it means a half is in the alpha. So are the raw means half eaten. So the Sahaba of the alohar not just for fun, because for them, it wasn't just words. They were really a man so Purim and her father Malema. So this harbottle de la antimo, famously known as cholera, and that meant not just reciters but profound memorizes of the poor and those who have memorized or learned it taught others and continued to teach others.
They were the ones who are respect.
Alaska panel there that honors someone who has the verses of the Quran in
the suit Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would honor.
In fact, Emmanuel de la hora de
relates at ease in his son from Abu Musab scheidel de la horn, in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the minute
he kurama the shape of the Muslim Mohammed little
lady latifi he will Jaffe and wait kurama This will plan in whatsit. Akuma Patterson, the law it was well suited, luckily his Salatu was Salam says, part of honoring and revering Allah
is to honor and to respect a Muslim
of white hair.
So to respect and show to respect and honor the elders is part of respecting and honoring Allah.
It's part of revering Allah in the minute.
So number one is to respect and honor the elderly. Those are the whitehair to where homily or an array latifi, who will Jeff Ian, and it is also part of the reverence of Allah. And part of honoring Allah to respect and honor one who carries a burden in his heart, as long as he does not go to extremes in relation to the poorer
and nor does he turn away from.
So I have someone who carries the verses of Allah in his heart, by the explicit command and instruction of the sort of loss of the mighty who seldom we are to honor him and respect or her
because of that connection. Not so much because of them, because they carry the words of a law in their hearts in their mind.
they honor them themselves by acting on them. This is why the condition is radio hardy Fie, he will Jaffe and as long as the person does not go to extremes in relation to the poor, and number two as long as a person does not turn away from the or and shun it. So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has instructed his ummah, to honor and respect the half of the court.
And he himself would honor and respect behalf of on every occasion.
My Muslim law Haley relates
to the law,
per se is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave clear instructions as to how people should be selected to lead the press.
someone who led the prayers,
was considered an Imam and a lead in the great sense of the word. He wasn't just regarded as
a servant or an attendant or an employee.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave clear instructions, and he set down the criteria
by which people should be selected for leading others in salon in prayer.
So what were his instructions, prophets, Allah Almighty, who seldom said, a woman through that I'm sorry, that the law says in this Hadith, recorded by Muslim in his city, that the prophets of Allah it was seldom said, the one who should lead them in prayer is the one who knows the most of the book of Allah.
Then he says that they are all equal in our, in their knowledge and health of the four and then the one who knows a sinner the most. And if all of them are equal, in their knowledge of the sooner than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the first ones amongst them to do.
And if they are all equal, even in nature, then the one who became a Muslim earlier than the others. So these were the criteria is Pamela, knowledge and recitation of the poor and meaning memorization to knowledge of the summer? If they are all equal, then knowledge of the three,
the one who did hedra first, and if they are all equal, even in their head, and even in their subnet, and of course, this wasn't difficult at all, when it came to the Sahaba of the law. They were all pious, they were all companions. If you found a group of them, the whole group was pious, the whole group was consistent of leading Sahaba of the law.
They were all Mahajan. They had all knowledge of the Quran. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the one who became Muslim first songs.
So these are the criteria. And the first criterion is Accra, Nikita Villa, the one who has the most knowledge of the order and meaning in terms of him, along with other knowledge as well. He would be selected to lead Salah so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whenever the Sahaba would travel, or they would be in a different place, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the one who has most or am should lead the others in Salah that was in life even in death, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the people of
those who had memorized the Quran
to learn it from Jordan Abdullah of the Allahumma who says that after the Battle of word in the third year of hedger
when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was burying the martyrs and the Shahada
because of lack of traps, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had to wrap two companions
or bury both of them together,
had to bury companions in one grave.
if the grave was
what we call the ship,
which is a slit at the bottom.
Then of course, you could
put both of them equally,
side by side, in a flat grave bits the grave is a letterhead, which is
this is a grave and then you normally have a triangular corner.
Insert into the wall of the grave. That's a lad. So the Prophet similar law, Marlene will send them buried the Shahada of in the, in the lead grave. So they're the lead grave who would go in first. So here were the Sahaba of the Allah.
These were his beloved companions. They were the Shahada, and the martyrs of they had already gained the rank of Shahada. But even then, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say, place these together in one grave. Now who will be placed in the lab before the other? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would ask us how about the alarm? Which of the two had memorized more
when he was told who the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would say, place him first and in front,
even though they were both Shahada martyrs, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, just as he would honor the people of the Quran in life, he would honor the people of the poor and even in death, even though they were sure that he would say, who learns most Koran amongst them, place him before.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam honored that her father and the people of the Sahaba of the alarm did say that it would have been her Barbara de la Han who did.
Following in the footsteps of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Mr. Muslim Rahim Allah again relates it from Amitabh Noir. The Allahu anhu says at one Squadron atharva, the alarm when he was a meter mumineen he appointed someone as a governor of America.
So that Governor of Midgar
had to leave on one occasion and he went elsewhere. So the instruction was that the governor if he left he would appoint someone as his deputy in his absence. So a lot of the law one met this governor of Makkah, somewhere else as far as so the motto the alarm said to him, that who have you left as your deputy, in your absence as a governor of the governor of muckety muck?
So the Sahabi so the he said that ignore
the law and never recognize that name, never knew who he was? She said, Who's it knobs?
She says, he said, He's one of our freed slaves, a molar client. So the alarm who said you appointed a molar, freed slave over muckety muck Rama has given.
So he said to him, or meet him what we need,
in the whole party on Nikita, when he is a half of the book of Allah, a party of the book of Allah, and he has knowledge of Ferrari, meaning the laws of inheritance, etc.
So I'm gonna have the alarm set. In that case, that's fine. Indeed. Your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he didn't say, Oh, he said, Your, your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said,
in the law, that will be held in the law, you will be heavily kitabi dwama, we will be offering that Verily Allah does through this book, elevate and raise some people and base and lower with us. So one of the alumni who was saying that I accept your choice and decision, regardless of who the person is, if he has the knowledge of the Book of Allah, if he is a party, if he is a half of the book of Allah, then indeed he deserves to be the governor
in your absence, and this was during the time of this harbottle the law, even though he was a form of freetds.
And this is exactly what the alarm would do himself, who were his confidence who were his
consultative who are the consultative members of his committee, or the members of his Consultative Committee, who were the people that he would have sitting around him
whom he would consult,
and with whom he would confer even about the affairs of the state
of the life in our bus, the Allahumma relates an editor called bamboo hardy in relation to the story of Rena Dubna, his son, whose nephew I relate to the story before were even arranged. My husband was a Bedouin, and very harsh in his speech. So he came once to Medina, and his nephew was one of the confidence and sure our members of the law firm. So he said to him that I wish to speak to Bob, can you
range and audience from me. So he said okay since he was one of his committee members, so he did arrange an audience but being a bad event and being of the temperament that he was he, as soon as he entered the room, one of the first things he said to the alarm and was here, even though
he said you don't distribute wealth as you should. And you aren't just in your distribution, and Omar de la. He was passionate, he became angry and lunged at him. He was about to seize him. When his nephew Orianna Dubner Heston's nephew intervened, and said, Oh, I'm even meaning ignore him. Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says in the Quran, they laugh watermarble nlj been the adopt that adopt the path of forgiveness,
adopt forgiveness, and enjoying the good and ignore the ignorant, will hurt them in a jailene even lose his uncle, he said, and he's one of the ignorant, so I'm gonna do law one, as soon as he heard the verses of the Koran he can't. But in that story, and the light and our bus of the Allahumma Lisa Bahati say says that the people who surrounded
the alarm his committee, his consultants, and the people of his modulus and gathering were the aura. And this nephew was a party himself. So they were the poorer so a lot of the alarm would ensure that he surrounded himself with the Father and the aura and the amount of the Holy Grail. And I'm delighted Ambassador lovemark my ads for hulan Colonel Shabana, regardless of their age, whether they were not just old, but whether they were middle aged or even young men. As long as they had the knowledge of the poor and of HIV, the Quran, they were profiled, those who had memorized the Quran, Amaro de la Juan would honor them and surround himself with these people. Just as the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam honored that her father in the poorer his hall of honor her father,
Satan are some of the alarm relates probably the most famous Hadith in relation to memorizing the Quran.
Mm hmm. Harder to lie relators hiding
from us man with the law,
which says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, halal commands are
the best of you is one who learns or who teaches
better, these words have so much depth.
This is a declaration on the part of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. as to who is the best, who has the best degree, who has the best qualification.
We marvel at and we aspire to
and we hope for for ourselves and our children and our loved ones to get the most prestigious degrees and qualifications from the most prestigious establishments of learning.
And we pride ourselves on these achievements.
We strive day and night to ensure that our children are enrolled in the best schools, colleges, universities, they have the best degrees and qualifications and it's a source of pride.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said is better than any job better than any career better than any other degree or qualification hated
it. The law of the land is not the word of that idea. I'm just saying. It means absolute without any qualification, hey, it'll come into animal or an O Allah. The best of you is one learns or Anna who teaches it.
This is why the narrator of the Hadeeth.
From the law underwriters from the profits of the law hiding who seldom
and which Derby
narrates is Heidi from with Manuel de la mer, who was a famous man known as a man of war, man,
amount of work.
This amount of work the Rama Rama hula was actually born in the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
But he never met him.
But he lived with the Sahaba of the Allah and learned from
and one of his greatest teachers was man with the alarm
and a man of war
Rama, he was an Imam in his own right, had great knowledge, but acting on this body of family alone. He actually says after the duration of this Hadith, that it is this meaning this head Eve, which has kept me seated here. Till now why he lived to very, very old before most decades of his life, all he did was devote himself to the teaching of the poor. That's all it even though he was extremely knowledgeable in other fields, acting on this head Eve imama warranty. Ramana Salemi Rahim Allah did nothing else. He wouldn't teach people other subjects. He would just sit teaching the Quran, not for one month, not for one year, not for even fleet not even for a few years, but for decades, till his
death. And even when he narrated this heading, he said, This is what has kept me seated here in my place.
So how about the law and devoted themselves to learning and when I say learning, it means memorizing the Quran. Now, these are just some of the virtues but in terms of value, in terms of reward.
How should we view the memorization of
there's a very beautiful Hadith recorded by my Muslim and his say, by Mohammed Hamblin is Muslim. And this is the wording of ramblings, Muslim, and rates of the head evilness, how about the alarm and
the alarm? who say is that once a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
addressed them in the masjid
and before I relate the heady,
just to put into context.
Well, let me explain the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
so he addressed the Sahaba of the lava in his machine.
And he said to them, which one of you
would not lie?
Which one of you wouldn't want
to Bhutan or a tea?
These were two very fertile regions of Medina.
Extremely fertile. This is where the grass was. This is where the orchards were. So which one of you wouldn't wish to go to Bhutan, also at the two areas of Medina very fertile
Goma, Wayne's a harrowing
to radiant, large, tall hunt camels
without committing any sin
and without breaking relations with anyone
without the severing of ties.
So the Scarborough the Allahu anhu, said Yasuda lo which one of us wouldn't want to do that?
And before I continue explaining that, this is why I paused earlier on, I need to give this some context because otherwise we won't be able to appreciate it.
Who was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressing, he was addressing the Sahaba of the alarm random and many of them with us horrible suffer those with no source of income,
who are poor.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling them, which ones you wouldn't wish to go to with Hamilton Abbey.
And in this narration of aquadome humble, he says every day so you don't just go once, where you go one day to Bhutan, and it come for free. You are allowed to pick two camels.
And then the next day, you can go again 30 you can go again. So every day.
So that's how about the law firm said you're sort of low which one of us wouldn't wish to do this?
As answer to give this some context so that we can understand.
We eat a lot of meats.
But we just
we have a very vague idea of the animals that the meat comes from.
So we know it's lamb. We know it's sheep, but how many of us can tell the difference between the two
So how about all the love?
So for us,
two camels, it probably doesn't mean anything.
So in order to understand the Hadeeth, let's, first of all understand what a camel meant to the Sahaba of the alarm to the Arabs, for the Arabs, the camels, everything.
The camel was their
source of pride,
a mark of wealth. It was a currency.
The deer, the blood money was paid in camels.
Blood Money was paid in candles.
And this is why
the word for blood money is Apple.
And Apple also means brains or the mind. So how can we both mean exactly the same thing? The word Apple originally means to tie.
the Arabs when
blood money had to be paid,
they would bring the camels and tie them.
And then they would come to the person and say, I've tied the camels, which meant I've delivered them. It's like saying someone has to
bring you a car with its let's say, Hi, a car.
So they parked the car outside, and they come in and they hand you the keys. And they don't say to you, I've delivered the car, they say, I've parked outside. So the meaning of life party is I've delivered it. So the Arabs would tie the camels. And by tying the camel, it would mean
after evidence. So, eventually, the word time Apple itself became used to refer to the blood money. So Blood Money was paid by
camels were even given in dowry.
Not only that, but it was their means of transport. There are Sheila their zamyla meaning what they would ride. So it was their main form of riding and, and then it was also their zamyla, which meant luggage.
So it was their carrier, their transport their car, their mark of esteem, the mark of wealth. It meant everything to them. And they would eat camel meats, but only as a last resort, because then they would try to preserve the camels for other reasons.
camels were very valuable. And just like cars today, you can buy extremely cheap cars and you can buy very expensive cars for them as well. camels were cheap, not very cheap, but reasonable. Standard, but they also have very expensive cabinets.
The size, the color. All of this made a difference a few years ago. I read that in the Middle East. A few years ago, one camel was sold for $8 million.
The continued to have camel races, and camel pageants were beauty pageants for camels. And one camel was sold for 8 million US dollars. That's a few years ago. So during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, camels were extremely valuable, extremely.
And the better the camel, the more valuable it was, for them. In fact, in the oral imagine, in the core analyst hat and suitable arshia
last panel that invites the Arabs to ponder and reflect over the creation of Allah in order to recognize and realize his wonderful creation and his power and glory. So last panel, who was the Allah tells them
Do they not reflect on the sky,
on the mountains, on the earth, now, all of these make sense.
The sky, heavens,
the earth, the mountains, these are mighty
spectacles of nature.
But even before these three dimensions for things that the arrows should reflect on, to recognize a laws, wonderful creation, His Majesty has power and glory. So before he mentioned, the earth, the mountains and the sky last panel with ADD essays to them first
Lions Rooney eaten every day for holiday. Do they not look at the camels? How they have been create?
They must mean something.
In English we say a camel is a horse designed by a committee.
In the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says a fella in Verona in an eBay for holiday, but do they not look at the camel hat has been created. So
camels meant a lot and I could say so much. It was their car. It was their truck. It was their van. It was a four by four. It was an if the car if that camera was extremely valuable, it was the expensive car, their supercar their sports car.
Now, today, we probably wouldn't be interested in then camels but cars.
Now the equivalent for us of this hadith is Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the Sahaba of the lover Which one of you wouldn't wish to go to Bhutan or a pig to fertile regions and for free without committing any sin without breaking ties of blood and Ken without severing any ties. Go and pick up to go my Wayne's that harrowing to splendid radiant, that means beautifully colored.
Go Marouane large and tall humped. This was a sign of health and value to camels for free.
And in the narration of Ahmed will handle in his Muslim every day, every single day. So how about all the alarm said which one of us wouldn't tell us. And for us the equivalent is who has would want camels but if someone was to say which one of you wouldn't wish to wake up every morning and be told of two parking lots or sport or car garages? showrooms to car showrooms, and go there and for free, without committing any sin without severing any ties, committing any crime absolutely free as a gift. Go and pick up not one but two.
Beautifully colored radiant,
large, expensive cars. Which one of you wouldn't, and not just one day, but every single day who was could resist
the hammer the law, who in the state of poverty, they said the sort of law which one of us wouldn't. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, that one of you should come to the masjid and learn to iron two verses of the book of Allah is far better for him than these two camels and three verses than three camels. And four verses are better than four camels woman at the hindlimb and Libyan and cont and so on and so forth, as many cameras as you wish. So as many verses these are better than as many counts.
That was a value.
And we may not think much of it being the words of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Almighty, who send them to verses of the Quran to let come to the masjid and memorize them and learn them are far far better. And even two cars for free, brand new, even to sports cars,
to verses of the Quran.
And the more we learn, the better someone can learn the entire or an 100. But one should not be daunted by this task. The last panel without essays in the Quran, whatever the assertiveness or analytic refers,
in sudo Allah mentions is four times and indeed we have made the or an easy for the and what's the meaning of this. It means all of these things it means remembrance, admonition, to take heed, it also means to memorize. that's a that's a promise of a last panel horchata Allah has made the Koran easy to memorize. If one only makes the intention and begins a step of a journey of 1000 steps beginning 1000 miles begins with one step.
The task may appear to be daunting, but we do it don't we? We memorize sort of prefer that. We memorize a smaller sort of the it's possible. How is it that someone embraces Islam?
They have absolutely no inkling, no knowledge, no experience of the Arabic language, none whatsoever. Even non Arab Muslims, at least from childhood, they've heard the words they've learned the words before a non Muslim in adulthood. They embrace Islam. They had no knowledge excuse
And within a few days
when they praise Allah, they've already memorized sort of the father and the other small secrets. So it's possible.
There are many people have embraced Islam and I've actually gone on men and women to not only memorize a few suits and a few very few verses and a few suits, but to actually memorize the entire
and to go on to teach. Allah has made the Quran easy for him for that, which includes memorization, so one should make the intention and learn as much as possible. It doesn't have to be the entire bar and immediately begin. We managed with small students, we management sort of prefer to learn the famous swords, the ones to read every day, sort of the mulk sort of the search the sort of the work there, and sort of guff for jamara and various others begin with the smaller students and continue and inshallah one can become a half of the poor and as long as one has that intention, we attempt to do so much, and we're always envious of others.
As a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the best of you is one
who learns or advocate teaches,
and we're always envious of others. We're always looking at us.
He has a better car than me.
She has a better house than
he has a better job.
He has a better qualification.
He's got more money.
And we are so subpanel love.
We can be so trivial.
we must we marvel at and we are envious of trivial things of the dunya.
Like cars, as I've said, on many occasions, these cars will out livers
will go to the graveyard before they go to the scrapyard.
They will outlive us
maybe not in our possession. But with other people. These cars will out livers and yet we pay so much attention we marveled at. We envy other people for their possessions, their homes, their cars. I saw the last little alarm it says now Hadeeth
recorded by Mahatma Muslim and others from the war era the alarm. He says la hacer that he left with nothing.
There is no envy except in two things. Meaning
if you were to envy someone, anything,
if someone else had something and you wanted it,
you designed it. You longed for it. And you were envious of them for having that thing. Then it shouldn't be for these trivial things. There should be no envy, do not envy anyone their possessions, their Homes and Gardens, their cars, their jewelry, their wealth, their money, their qualifications, their careers, their jobs.
Do not envy anyone these things.
There should be no envy or hazard. There should be no envy whatsoever. He left with nothing except in two things. The first of the two Rajan a limo, hula hula for Jolla, through Anna, Layla Anna,
for Samira who jaren la photon Layton UI to myth llama OTF alanon family to Islam is the first of the two is there should be no envy in anything except in two things. One, a man who Allah has taught the Quran and then he recites the Koran for the hours of the day and the hours of the night. So a neighbor of his here's him reciting. And the neighbor says, Would that I was given what he has been given, so that I could do what he told us. That is the only thing that wants you
if you want something that someone else has, why go for the trivial things? Why want their car or their
home or their money or their jobs or their career.
If you want something profits in the Learning Center Sallam says this is the first of the two things, only two things that one should be envious of. A man who Allah has taught the poor and what does he do with the Quran. He
reads it from the hours of the day and the hours of them.
So not just memorizing the Quran, but once he has memorized the Quran, he recite it all the time. And then a neighbor hears him reciting. And the neighbor feels that How marvelous is this, if only if only I had what he had, which is an arm so that I could do what he does, which is I don't want the arm for the title. I don't want the arm for the name and the glory and the fame and the honor, no, I won't look for and so that I wish I could do exactly what he does, which is recited data.
And the second of the two is Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What are children out there who lahoma and for you? liko Phil Haack.
sakala Rajan, Layton, UT Thomas Rama OTF on fire Milton, Islam is a man who Allah has given wealth, yes, Allah has given him money, but he spends that money in truth in help. So a man looks at him and says, I wish I would that I had been given the welfare he has been given, not so that I may enjoy it for our new Muslim animal, so that I could do exactly what he does, which is spend in the way of giving in charity. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there should be no envy accepting these two things. Because these are the things are valid.
two verses are better than two camels. Two cars, three verses are better than three camels, three cars to memorize. If we are envious of anyone for anything, it should be only the verses of the Koran or charity.

So someone who memorizes the Quran who's half of

So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, a half of the arm on Earth, his arranque is with these Ambassador angels. And the only explanation is that just as Allah has get assign them the
responsibility of guarding and preserving the one on earth who becomes a half of Allah subhanho wa Taala employs him as a means to preserve the
his rank is with those Ambassador angels and the rest of the Hadees and someone who is not happy but will actually recites with great difficulty, and stutters and stammers.

The people of the Quran the father the or honor the people of Allah, Mohammed, and even a manager both relator had Ephraim and Hassan Malik are the lifeline online, in which you say the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Leela helenium in a nurse.

So the Sahaba said Who are the sort of Allah Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the people of the Quran, they are the people of LA and he's chosen selected ones. Now these are just some of the rewards and the virtues of the dunya and opposition, what will actually happen on your mafia.
For someone who has memorized the Quran in the dunya
our eventual one, the Quran will actually intercede on behalf of the recite and on behalf of the half. So anyone who resides we know in the month of Ramadan, Ramadan is the month of the Quran. And Imam Ahmed relates these from Abdullah Mohammed bin laughs or the alarma who says that prophets Allah
love our ecosystem said on the day of reckoning the poor Well, this is obviously on the day of reckoning, the poor earn and the fast will both speak to Allah and the fast will say well law I prevented him from eating during the day for sure for any fee except mind session on his behalf. And the button will say I prevented him from Risa from sleeping and resting at night, except mine session on his behalf. prophets alarm it seldom sees for yourself around the intercession of both the arm and the fast will be accepted on behalf of this purse.
So that's just for someone who recites What about someone who actually memorizes again, Abdullah have normative analysis of the Allahumma relates in a headings record Burnham, Campbell and others, that the prophets of the love it who seldom says your arlie Asahi bill or any extra work, what they will come up
for in the Manzella tech in the US.
It will be said to someone who has memorized the Quran on the day of judgment that read and rise it brought a work, recite and rise
for indeed, and read as you would read in the dunya. For indeed, your station is at the final verse that you recite. So, if you recite one verse, He will climb rise one grade, besides two verses by heart, he will rise to grades. And if the more a person reads, the more they will arise, read and rise. And if someone reads then tire, then indeed their position, their destination, their station will be at the end of the final verse that they recite.
Imam Timothy ravintola he relates a very beautiful idea from Abu huraira. Allah says on the day of reckoning, the Quran will actually come and say Oh Allah
adorn him meaning the half is someone who's memorized or adorn him.
So the half it will be made to wear a crown on his head, and that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam calls it that jewel Karana the crown of honor.
So the owner will actually say, adorn him.
So a crown replaced on his head called the crown of
then the Quran will say Allah increase him in adorning. So he will be given a suit to wear which will be called
Little kurama the suit of armor
and then the person will then see it again and say Allah be pleased with him. So Allah will be pleased.
And again he will be set to him read and rise read and rise.
you know, I'm hacking what I have to learn today relates these in his own stir that up from breather, a slim yet on the Allahu says that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said,
on the day of judgment, that well the words of the Hadith are
Morocco and with Allah huami. Whoever recites the Koran and learns it, that means memorizing
and acts on it. This is important to
whoever reads the Quran and learns and act on it. Then on the Day of Judgment, he will be given to wear a crown on his head.
The brightness of this crown is like the brightness of the sun.
And his parents will be given to suits to wear. And the parents were marvel at their suits. And the suits will be of such value the province of the law it says the parents of this half will be given two suits to where the world will not be equivalent in value to those two suits, the whole dunya and the parents will say the father and mother will say why have we been given these suits to were to present to them? What are the common core because your son became a half of the group
because of your son's memorization of the
so these are just some of the rewards and in one iteration of this final Hadeeth the wording is that not only will the person be given a crown to wear but one of the Hadeeth as a man wondering the rights and as a theory voter he ascribing it to a Hackman sled dog. The parents will be given not only suits to wear but also crowns to wear. So the sunblock
Have a suit, and a crown, the Father, the father and mother, but also wear suits, and crowns, and of that value, and these are all reliable.
These are just some of the rewards but mind you, I've just like to make a word well say a few words in relation to how we should go about memorizing a loss as well as the sudden, and I didn't think
we have made that easy for them. And Vicar means admonition, remembrance, recitation, and he also includes and incorporates meaning of memorization. Allah has given us this miracle. People can memorize or make the intention. It's very simple to do. You can start, we waste so much of our time, surfing the internet, idling,
much productive. If we were to devote even a small part of our time to recite in the Quran.
with intention, they fire repeatedly recite this over and over again, I'll be able to memorize it, you will be fulfilling, personally rewarding, rewarding with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And not only that, but as Allah promises in the Quran
and Arabic Rila he taught me
know that in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find contentment, that there is no better than the recitation of
one will draw a certain relief and inspiration and satisfaction and joy from reciting the Quran. And if someone does it repeatedly with the intention of memorization, then one can follow in the footsteps of many people. I'm not even talking about people of the past. But even now, people will continue with their everyday lives. They shop, they trade they sell, they work, they walk. And even though
they appear to be silence, not doing anything, under their lips, or even in their mind and heart they are continuously recited
And it's easy to achieve.
Prater last panel with their other make an effort and inshallah libre reward you with success. And one final thing in relation to this, that the parents will be given such a great reward. Remember, do not ever make the mistake of compelling children to become happier.
There is no compulsion, not even in health. Otherwise, this would be a very personal and selfish reason. It's all your boils, it almost boils down to the following thought that I want to suit.
So I want to make sure that my child becomes a habit, do not compel children to become happy, or on a word of warning. I'll tell you why. Allah forbid if you compel them in childhood. In their later years, they will actually turn away from

one of the most dangerous things to do,
you will put them off the forearm for life.
There is no compulsion, encouragement.
In fact, what are the words of the Hadith suggest?
They will say why did we receive the sins
and the wording is beyond the what are the common core and because your son took the Quran, meaning he memorized it.
So the children should do it themselves
and thereby honor and reward their parents, not the parents use the children sees this rule.
So of course, encourage children, but do not ever pressure or compel children. Children are innocent at such a young age. And if they are more inclined to do it, then do not push them do not pressure them to not force or compel.
And do not even use the logic that they don't understand we know better, and they will thank us when they grow older.
I mean, everything Thank you.
If anything, they may hold it against you. And you would then be responsible for turning them away from the crowd.
advise, let your desire be known. And so
why do you want to suit and employ the child I'm just being humorous, but why do you want to suit and employ your child to become a habit?
The Quran why not do the better thing which is leave your child for now, you become a habit and give your parents a suit.
Encourage children do not compel them to not pressure them to not force them.
