Baraka was a limit theorem.

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
being the final of these prophets and messengers
was also given a number of miracles.
We are fascinated by these various miracles.
But his greatest miracle
even greater than the
splitting of the sea by sea than a whole Saudi has alone,
the resurrection of the dead by sea than sad his Salaam
and greater than any of the miracles
exhibited at the hands of the other messengers. His greatest miracle is a holy grail.
Now it's difficult to understand this, if we simply consider it to be a book.
The Quran is marches. One of the qualities of the Quran is jars and jars means
to overwhelm, to defeat.
And the one who defeats or the thing that defeat is known as marches. So the owners marches it's overwhelming, it's defeating, it's overpowering in many ways.
And for the Arabs, who pride themselves on being extremely eloquent.
And without doubt, the Arabic language is
superb in many ways. And if you look at the Arab description of native Arabs, and non Arabs, that in itself speaks volumes. So the word for the Arabs is Arabic. And the word for non Arabs is agile.
And the word Arab is related to being able to express oneself. An
agent is related to the roots were denoting one's inability to express oneself in fact, it means dumb in the sense of speech. So that's how the Arabs valued their poetic and expressive qualities. And this was their most powerful medium. So last panel, Adana revealed the Koran and he deliberately kept the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam unlettered and unfamiliar with poetry as a last as well my alumna who shared 1 million buildings
in Hawaii, the promo code
that we have not taught him poach, meaning the messengers of the love it was seldom and nor is it benefiting him. So someone who wasn't a poet
who wasn't familiar with poetry, who couldn't even recall poetry,
let alone repeat
That person all of a sudden, produces a course
which confounds and silences the most eloquent of the Arab poets and speakers. That in itself was a sign for them.
And they were really attracted. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
as I was saying the Quran is marches in many ways, and this is just one aspect of its being marches, overwhelming, overpowering, defeating.
So the Arabs were able to witness it as a miracle.
We may not
be able to appreciate it.
One expert Arabic speaker, who was familiar with not only the laws of Arabic but also the poetry and the styles and the scales and the meters of poetry. He once heard someone recite just part of a verse of surah Yusuf famous they assume Minghella Suna Jia,
which simply translates into when they are the brothers despaired of him meaning Binyamin
holosuite, Nigeria, they withdrew into secrets consultation.
Now, that's a simple translation when they despaired of him. They withdrew in
secrets, consultation, or secrets conference and the Arabic is film mysterious woman, Hala Sona, Jia. That's all it says.
When this experts,
speaker and scholar heard this, he immediately explained by Allah these cannot be the words of him. They're
just that one sentence for the mistake assuming wahala synergy.
And this is in the later years not even during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is much later. So
during the time of Rasulullah, and even salatu salam, the Arabs were really able to appreciate the power and the attraction of the
In fact, it's mentioned that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to recite Salah
at home at night, the double Sophia, who was a non Muslim at the time, this is in the earliest days of Mecca, abou Sophia and aboard Jen and and and another one Allahu Allah signal Shetty. These three independently, each without the knowledge or the notification of the other. One Nights all three of them secretly approach the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abu Sufyan somewhere nearby abou Jehan, and a lack of synchronicity.
And secretly they remain there for a long time, listening to the sort of last little alarm it was recited
in his home.
when they were returning home, they all met each other.
So they began scolding one another, saying, What are you doing here? Why have you come here? Do you not realize that if the people of mucker see this a witness this, this will be a fitna for them a distraction, a trial, they will be attracted to the words of Mohammed. So all three of them were rebuking each other for having come to secretly listen to the dilemma of a single last alarm, it was on them. And then eventually, at the end of their mutual recriminations, they agreed that we must all ensure that we never return. So they agreed. The next night, each one of them secretly came again. Listening to the dilemma of a sort of loss on the law highlight was seldom again when they
departed, they began rebuking each other when they met each other. They promised they wouldn't come again. The third night, every one of them was attracted to the dilemma of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even a boudjellal Amitabh Nishan, being the most bitter enemy of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu bilinguals. He was a man of letters, a poet. He was attracted by the words of the Holy Quran.
So an Abu Sufyan and that lesson submission again on the third night, they met
On the third night when they were departing, this time, they all took a firm oath that we will not return. And then they didn't. The next morning, and sigma Sharif, the third one other than Abuja, Helen, Sophia, he approached abou Sophia. And he said to him, tell me, what did you make of what you heard from
somebody who was
so abusive Yan said, I recognized and appreciated some of the things that I heard, but other things I just don't recognize at all. Meaning he didn't understand them.
So I'll also have Yan set a signature here.
And what did you make of what you heard? So a lot of machinery if it wasn't a Muslim, he said,
By Allah, what I heard from him, I realize it to me that happened the truth. But he still didn't embrace Islam. He embraced Islam many years late, many, many years later. So out of these three, sigma Shetty, embraced Islam, and so did Abu Sufyan round about the same time at the conquest of Makkah. But Abu Jehan never embraced at all. But there were still at that time there were bitter enemies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Abuja who died as an enemy, but they were still attracted to the message and to the words of the court. Because of the overwhelming Arabic, this is why they're all frustrated at the recitation of sort of imagine when literally either Hola,
Marbella, Sahib, Mama oma anticline, however, till the end of the surah it's a very powerful surah the words not only rhyme, but the
flow, the tone the message, it's truly overwhelming. So once a Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam recited sort of the najem
in a congregation of both Muslims and non Muslims.
And they sat there mesmerized by the dilemma of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was sent them at the end of the surah, Allah Subhana Allah Allah commands fall into frustration, all of them actually fell into frustration.
They were overwhelmed. They all fell into such that it was only later they realized what they had done. So they had to make excuses for why they had frustrated. And this is why they actually fabricated the story of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praising their idols. And they claimed that a lot of that Mohammed said, for a tabula rasa aminata 35th and Oprah didn't kill her on Ebola.
But do you not see that resentment at the third goddess? These are the high soaring birds and their intercession is to be hoped for. But these two additional parallel sentences or verses per se, they weren't verses. These were interpolated by the pagans of Makkah to justify their prostrating at the end of the surah otherwise, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never uttered these words. The words are for 18 la,
la, la, la cama de kerravala, silky the New Testament on visa. So, again, the reason they invented these words, and falsely attributed them to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was to justify their frustration. And the reason they frustrated is that they were absolutely overwhelmed by the force on the eloquence of just the words of sort of the measurement. At the end of which they fell into such frustration.
They were they feared the poor and as a last panel without essays in the Quran will call in Medina cafaro la to smart rule, he had an annual fee landed on the moon, and those who disbelieved and this was specifically a reference to the people of Makkah. Whenever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite the Koran.
or others would recite the Quran, like the Sahaba of the laquan. They would attempt to cause disruption, they will begin clapping, whistling so that others wouldn't hear that or,
in fact, physically placing their fingers in their ears.
They feared that
because they understood its power and its elegance.
It's the new year of hedger. And last year, when we did the
When I did the commentary of the hadith of Hydra Hardy, we learnt in that about abubaker a severe cut of the alarm.
That meaning shuttle the alarm essays about abubaker severe sort of the alarm that my father
he was a very soft hearted man.
And Organa abubakr in Rajan Baca
Liam liquifying. He
was an extremely
emotional person, he would weep excessively
and he would not be able to control his eyes or hold back his tears whenever he read the Quran.
That's how Abubakar de la
and he would read with the most half.
in the early days of mofga, abubaker the alarm would recite or an loudly alone, someone walking in and shuttle the alarm how relates that he used to be at home. So abubaker rhodiola. And he once he left Makkah, to do hedger to Abyssinia.
and he said to him, where are you going our back?
And he said, he explained about the persecution of the people of Makkah. So it would have been said to him that how can
the people of mugger drive away someone like you? And then he praised Abu Bakar or the alarm with the same words that mean deja vu la hora praised the Prophet sallallahu it was in Nicoletta Sydow rain, with duck Sybil madam.
What are the what are
the same words are deja de la Miranda used about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he came from the Cave of Hitler, after the revelation of the first verses of the Quran, even though the hula without any knowledge, used exactly the same words about
praising him that indeed you bond the ties of kin and blood.
You provide for those who are poor and destitute. You bear the burden of those who are in need of help. You are hospitable to the guests, and you assist others who have been struck and afflicted by the trials of misfortune and fate. So he is exactly the same words and he said someone like you cannot be driven out of Makkah returned to Makkah, and I will guarantee you my protection, so even the one that took him back to Makkah, and he actually told the arrange that aboubaker even though he is in my protection, no one is to harass him or do anything to him, leave him alone Leave him be. So the Qureshi accepted as a result of worker the alarm wiring carried on living in Makkah, then he
decided to build a little machine for himself. It just meant an open space designated for a burger, just in the courtyard of his home, so that a robot could have the alarm and would recite the he would pray Salah, and he would recite the Quran.
And this is what we're looking at shall hold the alarm on her Caesar, he would loudly sit there reciting the Quran. So the women and the children of the machine again would come and stand there sit there, watching him and listening to him. And this began worrying the machine again. So they tried to stop him. Eventually they approached him in the donor. And they said to him, we only gave permission, and we accepted your protection of abubaker only understanding that we would leave him alone to practice his faith, but not that he in the privacy of his home. Not that he recites what he hears from Mohammed loudly, because we fear for our children, and we fear for our women folk, they
will be seduced by his words.
So they told him who the winner You are the withdraw your protection, or you stop him from reading loudly and publicly. So the hoonah approach of a worker of the alarm and said to him that
you should only worship in the privacy of your home and not recite loudly.
So Otherwise, I will have to withdraw my jawatan protection.
So we look at all the alarm service through your Jaguar and your protection. I am content with the Jaguar and the protection of law.
But again, the reason I mentioned the story is how they arrange fear the words of the poor and whether the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was reciting them, or whether a worker of the loved one was reciting them because they genuinely feared being seduced, overwhelmed and mesmerized by the words of the Quran, because they recognize its power, its eloquence, and its miraculous nature.
In fact, in the very early days, I'm delighted no screw that will be a lot more fun. And this is the power of the Quran. When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received the Quran, he would recite it abubaker of the Allah and would recite loudly. Something touched them, and they would spend their nights and their days reciting from the earliest days of Islam. This is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his home will Buckaroo de la hora and in his home in the earliest days, Abdullah hybridomas rule there'll be a lot of harm. He was one of the earliest Muslims according some narrations he was a sixth Muslim to embrace Islam. Six person once he was seated with some of the
others harbottle the alarm? Just a few.
And they said that
these people haven't heard the or aren't being recited publicly as it should.
So Why doesn't someone resigned? So I'm delighted with that or the alarm volunteer. He said I will.
So they said to Abdullah him was the law or not use someone else. One of the reasons was that I'm delighted to Massoud there'll be a law firm, who's very slim, extremely, he looked frail.
He will short your slim
since he used to be the carrier of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has water and his miswak is to work and his pillow and his sandals.
Once Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent him up the tree to break off some twigs for his cigar. So I'm delighted I'm so little the alarm climbed up. And this How about all the alarms?
Were watching from below, and the wind blew. And when the wind blew the cloth of I'm delighted whatsoever the alarm revealed his spindly legs, since you're so slim, so frail and skinny per se. So some of us are How about have the alarm began laughing at the fragility in the frailty of his body, and the extremely thin
Shanks and legs that he had. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, You laugh at the legs of Abdullah, who in the midst of the alarm, by law,
on your monthly ama, on the day of reckoning, these legs of evening was rude mihrab will be heavier in the scales of a law than even the mountain of art.
So he was very slim.
So this, how about the love and the few that were there? They said, No, not use someone else. And the main reason was, they said to him, that we want someone else who has the backing of family, because
his family will be able to protect him if the orange wish to harm him. And I believe that of the law, I never had that.
So I'm delighted and so there'll be a lot more emphasis, it doesn't matter. A law will protect me. So I'm delighted whatsoever the alarm went to the Hara. And there he stood near the arm of Ibrahim. And the grace was gathered there
in their normal sitting place next to the gamma.
And then I'm delighted when I saw that of the alarm and began loudly reciting sort of Rama,
So the Quraysh leaders of the orange turn, Ron said, Who is that? If not married? What is he saying? So they listen carefully. And as he read loud and directly out of them, they said, he is reading what Mohammed claims is revealed to him. So that then stood up, immediately went for him and began attacking him until they blooded his face by beating him when Abdullah When was the last one returned, that other Sahaba of the alarm, who said to that said to him, this is exactly why we said to you, you shouldn't have gone so I'm delighted with the alarms reply was by Allah
The enemies of Allah are even more despicable and lowly in my eyes now than they were ever before. And if you want tomorrow I will return to the masjid and recite or am further. So they said no, no this is sufficient, they have heard the words of Allah.
Even in the earliest days, the power of the Quran drove the Sahaba of the lovern to recite in the order and even in the face of danger. abubaker de la hora Abdullah even though the alarm and the power of the Quran was such that the Quraysh feared
it they actually feared.
Even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was the recipient of the Quran, the Quran was revealed him asuna la la his Salatu was Salam will recite the Quran frequently, a lot, and he would be affected by the tilava of the Quran. This is a power of the
the Quran affects everyone or it should affects everyone. It affects animals.
It affects the angel.
He affects the prophets of Allah had a monster that was
even affected the mushrikeen and the pagans of Makkah.
And if the Quran fails to affect us, we should really question ourselves.
Now why are we not affected by the holy book?
Even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was affected by
Imam Bukhari Muslim and others all relates from Abdullah hidden outbursts of the alarm
that he says
can have a social life Salalah Holly who sent them?
What can I do with Omar yaku Fira ma
p Neil opportunity
and the live members of the lover Nkrumah says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most generous of all people. Indeed he was the most charitable. But the one time when he was more charitable and more generous than that any other time was in the month of Ramadan. When gibreel Allah Hassan would meet
and what would happen is every room of our God alayhis salaam would meet with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam them in a special way
for you though,
and they would, do you believe alayhis salam would revise the Quran with the prophets of Allah it wasn't
in Asian languages,
those children who become half of the
we use word subak.
so Baba Baba is a non Arabic word it means Jews. And subak comes from sub which means ahead. So when you learn ahead that sub
again this from Arabic, and then you revise parts of the recent order, and that you've learned over the past few days. That's the just, and the third thing which everyone is familiar with, it's mispronunciation we call it door. That word comes from doubt, though, means turn in Arabic, and this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to deal with gibreel alayhis salam. So, Djibouti the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Djibouti really his and I will meet in the month of Ramadan in a very special way. And then one would recite that much of the Quran that had been revealed till then to the other, whilst the other listened attentively, and then the other would
recite the same to the first. And in this way, they would revise the Quran between them in Arabic known as modasa, and mirage. And those simply means one person's turn the other person's turn. This is how the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam would actually revise the urn with Djibouti ready his Salaam. So I'm delighted in our bus of the Allahu anhu Omar says that in the month of Ramadan, gbta Hassan would meet with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam every night. And the result of this meeting with gibreel and the dilemma of the poor am with him as such. But even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most generous of all people, following his meeting with gibreel
alayhis salam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to be even more generous and charitable and free spending, Gary Miller real masala and the large numbers of the love and romance as it was even more generous, more charitable, and more free.
Spending than the free blowing when
that was the effect of the poor and on the sort of last on the law it was the poor and would affect everyone, including animals I mentioned earlier on about animals. And the famous story of we'll see them later the alarm were amanbo hardy mammals, Muslim and others relate that will say to them today it will be a lot more and one of the Sahaba of the line.
He trades that he was reciting
was reciting Quran at night.
His his son named Yeah, was his baby son was sleeping close by and his horse was also tied close by
will say the day that the alarm was recited loudly.
all of a sudden, his horse began Dancing and prancing.
So we'll see them holidayed or the alarm suddenly stopped, paused. When he paused, the horse calmed down,
and he feared for his son,
and he began reciting again. As soon as he resumed his recitation, the horse began prancing and jumping, will say that they are the lover and paused. As soon as he paused the horse calm down. Third time, he began reciting again, again, the horse began prancing and dancing. We'll see them later the alarm stopped. And then he actually went over to check his son. As soon as he stopped the horse calm down. Then we'll say to the alarm says, I looked up towards the sky. And I saw a huge cloud, something similar to a cloud, and the cloud was filled with lamps.
And it was rising, meaning the cloud with the lamps was rising to the sky until it disappeared. So the next morning, he said, immediately, I went to the profits of the light equal center, and I related this incident to him. So as he was relating the incident, he hadn't completed it. He says, I stopped reciting the first time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him Oh, Sade carry on reciting carry on resizing. And he told him the second time that I stopped because of the horse. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again said to him, oh, proceed, carry on, recite and carry on reciting. Then, when he finished the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh, Sade, do you know
what these lights were? These were the angels who had come down to listen to your dalawa and recitation of the Quran.
And had you continued, in one duration that are at a Jeep, you would have witnessed strange and miraculous things, wonderful things. And in the narration of Buhari and Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, These were the angels who came down and came close to listen to your recitation of the Quran. And I will say, if you would have continued to recite the the people of Medina would have seen them, they would have come down, the people would have seen them, they would have not been hidden from the pee.
That's the effects of the dilemma of the Quran, he attracts the angels. In fact, it has a wonderful effect even on animals, as is evident in the story.
The tilava of the Quran, the words of the Quran,
jobaline da Ito harsh.
If we had revealed this
on a mount,
you would have surely seen the mountain humble
out of the fear of
So, arm has this wonderful effect on people, on prophets, on angels, even on inanimate objects by the testimony of a last panel with that. That's the power and the eloquence of the holy war and truly so.
And even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a recipient, he would love reciting the Quran.
A lot of the time, prophets in the love it was and would recite out of Salah insula silently, loudly. So how about the alarm? I would love reciting the prayer and this was their passion.
The stories of the thilawa of the Sahaba of the alarm are truly amazing. It's related about a man of my family the alarm, that once he completed the entire plan in one regard
we may think that How is that possible? Allah subhanho wa Taala give us a Barack in the time of his chosen sir, time is relative.
We know as a scientific fact that time is relative.
So if the last panel data wishes to place Baraka in people in fact in the Hadeeth later by Imam Hamblin is Muslim, but sort of last Allahu Allahu Salaam says that a time will come. ie This is the meaning of the Hadith closer to
the Arabs, the man time will shrink. So much so that one year will become like a month, one month will become like one jamara meaning one week, one week will become like one day, and one day will become like one hour, not the 60 minutes as we know it, but an hour short moment of time, and each hour will become mica flesh.
And this is the thought of sort of laughs on the lighting system. And we are a witness to that. We complain forever about having no time. Even though we've got everything everything's instant, instant shopping, instant food,
ovens, stoves, electric fan, assisted ovens, microwaves, dishwashers, washing machines for clouds. We have all the facilities and the means and yet
how much time do we get? We're always complaining about lack of time. The people of the past, they used to wash their clothes, how? By hand and not even at home, often at the pool or at the edge of the village. Every morning, they would have to go and fetch water from the wells
for cooking, just to light the fire it would take them half an hour 1520 minutes, gathering the firewood gathering dung etc. lighten the fire that's just to light the fire. And yet Pamela, one of the orlimar of the recent past of the last century, he explains that
and his family lived in the rural Indian subcontinent. He says, And remember, we're talking about
families, women folk who had to do all the chores and household work themselves by hand without any of these modern appliances. And he says Alhamdulillah I can say
with joy and pride that my the women folk of my family in the month of Ramadan with a fast whilst fasting, and whilst completing all of their household chores and duties, they are still regularly all of them able to complete 15 to 20 Jews out of the 30 of the Quran every day.
And that's in the month of Ramadan.
And that was only in the last century. And in the earlier days.
It's mentioned the Batman shaffir came to LA he and he he's to complete 64 and both him and
mom Shafi Imam Abu hanifa later have both of them that they would complete 60 or and in the in the month of Ramadan. 31 during the day, one during the night, and that 60 for the whole month. Even Imam Hari Rama lights famously known of him, he used to complete 40. So one quart per day, and then one third of the or at night. So by the end of the month he had completed 44.
And it's possible.
In fact, in the Ramadan just gone. It's mentioned about one elderly half with an RD, who's in the 70s. In
who's in his 70s. he recited the entire program in one record
in taraweeh in nephal Sala and people were praying behind.
Smile, have fun with the Alliance mentioned of him that he would he completed one in one regard and the Sahaba rhodiola and who used to love reciting the Quran in this manner, prophets Allah Allah Almighty, some of them even though he was a recipient of the Quran, he loved reciting he loved listening and delight
The alarm who says now these later bamboo Hardyman Muslim? This is a wedding of Muslim essays. Once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me, and we learned from our generations he was seated and the member, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in the member, Abdullah, who must be a loved one was on the ground. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him,
even if he was rude, recite the Quran too.
So I'm delighted with him was the librarian who said the law, should I recite the Quran to you when the Quran is revealed to you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I wish to hear that from someone other than myself. So I'm delighted when I saw that of the alarm overseas. I began reciting sort of them Nisar from the beginning.
And I continued until I was I came to the verse.
So how will it be?
okay for you, the gentleman called Misha Hayden, with genomic Allah, Allah shahida. How will it be when we shall bring forth a witness from every nation, and we should produce you and bring you forth as a witness over these people. So I'm delighted This is a 41st verse of sort of than this. So the prophets, I'm delighted and I saw that the alarm says, someone poked me with the finger, and I, so I looked up, and the prophets alarm it was an almost weep.
And then he said to him have smoke enough sufficient, so I stopped reciting. But because the address was to the prophets of the law, it was a suit of law. And he said it was and I was listening to the Koran, and weep, even though he was a recipient of the corner. This is what the Sahaba of the alarm would do. Their time was spent reciting the Quran, your mama will die all that I had to learn today relates very beautiful story in his son and
from a musetti the hooded evil the Allahu says that once I sat with the poor, immigrants and the maharjan, all from the US harbor suffer from the people of suffer.
Well, he said, they were the people of suffering. He just says, I sat with the poor Mahajan.
And when I sat with them, they were so poor, that some of them were leaning against each other, leaning on each other, to ensure that their private parts wouldn't be exposed. They didn't have that much clothing to cover themselves fully.
And they were huddled together, so I sat with them, and what would they do? A lot. One of them was reciting the Quran and all of them were listening.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came out, and he came to them. So when he came and stood nearby, the Adi was reciting he stopped. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, what were you doing? So they said, Yasuda Loeb, we were listening to this party recite the Quran to us and we were listening to the book of Allah.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, continue. And then he said, All Praise be to Allah, who has made of my own such people that I have been instructed to be patient and remain with.
So then he sat down, he sat down with and then he motioned this, and he said, Come closer to me until they were all huddled together. And then he said, Oh, POM Mahajan on, receive the glad tidings of renewed time yomo of complete new and light on the day of reckoning. And we'll see the glad tidings that usual end to Agenda 500 years before the rich and wealthy of mine.
What were the what were even the poor Mahajan on so how about all the alarm doing? huddled together in their poverty? One of them reciting the Quran and the others listening attempt. This is a beauty of the portal and throughout Muslim history
they have been
in fact, it's normal.
Let me mention a point. We learn about the real amount of Hades.
People are fascinated by Hades and we constantly hear about heavy so Mr. Mahatma Muslim phenomena we we marvel at their ability to memorize these to relate the
Pamela, the one thing about all of them, why don't we hear so much about their knowledge of the Quran
or that the language of the Quran or the connection with the poor.
We hear so much that such and such scholar
Travel towards Hades collected Hadeeth
listen so many Hadeeth Why don't we hear such accounts? About what are
they like? What was his relationship with the poor? We don't hear much about it. What was a man Muslims relationship with the Quran? don't hear much about it. See me the man, humbling man man and all of this even the for our Imam Shafi man and Eva Imam Malik Imam, handle. What was their relationship with the Quran? Do you know why we don't hear much about it? Because it was a given.
It's like asking what was their relationship with Salah?
Why don't we hear so much about their performing Salah
or their givings occur, or their bother? Because it was a given. For the amount of headache you couldn't be an alum of Hades without being an alum and a scholar.
You couldn't be a scholar of phip without being a scholar of Hadith. And
so their relationship with the Quran was a given.
imagined these geniuses who were able to memorize hundreds of 1000s of Hadeeth in the sense that each had each separate head, each with a separate chain of integration is considered a distinct head. That's how we number them in the in the many, many 1000s otherwise, collectively, the texts from the soul of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are only just over about 5000 approximately. But these scholars were able to memorize and retain the memory of so many Hadeeth with different chains of narration. How can we don't hear much about their relationship with the Quran? Simple because it was a given. They used to recite all the time, as I mentioned it with his traveling with his
studying with his revision with his teaching of Hadith, even in the month of Ramadan who would complete 40. Your mom Shafi man what an effects mentioned about both of them, along with all their teaching, you would complete 60 pounds in a month.
Once during the day, once during the night, about your memoir, it's mentioned many of you will have heard the story of Mr. Mallika himolla.
Like he was teaching heavy than Scorpion bitten
the same story remarkably, as mentioned the Batman mojari whilst performing Salah, so once he was performing Salah
after Salah, he mentioned some of the students that come check my back, so they removed his cloak, and they checked beneath his cloth, and there was a scorpion passed to his back that bitten him all over.
So they actually said to him, Oh, Mr. May Allah have mercy on you. Why didn't you stop your summer?
And this was Buhari his reply, he said, I was in the middle of a surah and I did not wish to end my Salah without completing this order first.
Their love of the Quran was such that they were able to withstand even the bites of scorpions
mind over matter
that was their devotion to the world.
And this is how our relationship with a ranch
I can mention so much about the virtues of the Quran the blessings of the Quran, the Quran is a cure it's a mercy it's a guidance.
One of the zoom in or Anima Who was she found what I mean?
When I see the value in a law
and we do reveal of the or am that which is a mercy and a cure for the P for the believers. And the Quran does not increase the law the mean meaning the sinful ones wrongdoers accepting loss that
has a dual power
it makes the good better but it can also make the bad worse. And that's exactly what happened to them shaking
the arm has this power to make the good better. But those who resist the or it can make the bad worse. And as a Quran says Allah is evil vile demeaning la sala
de la hora in said that Indeed Allah elevates people with the squatter and arm and a lot also bases and lowers other people through the arm has this dual power
So our relationship we can say so much about the bar and it's a cure. It's a mercy. It's, it does so much. But today I just wish to focus on the virtues of reciting the Quran and just listening to them. If we can develop that connection with the Quran, the Quran will work wonders for us.
lost Hannah who was
in the Quran he instructs the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to recite
what Rama who here in a recite that which has revealed to you?
one miracle an akuna minal muslimeen. One
I have been commanded to be of the Muslims and I have been instructed to recite the Quran
to the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with guru Nima Rafi boo the condom in Isaiah Tila when hikma
and recite and this is a collective addressed to the wives specifically, but a wives of the Messenger of Allah. Recite remember and recite what is recited in your homes of the verses of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was commanded, recite the the wives were commanded, recite the Sahaba of the Allah and he would spend days and nights reciting the Quran. That was their connection. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has encouraged us in that Howdy.
I said the thilawa of the Quran attracts the angel so you know what a lot of the alarm relates and at least recorded my Muslim history, or much dimera own verbatim in boo Tila. It Luna kita Bella waited out a tsunami FEMA bien, la la la Sakina Walker, she will have Fatone melodica with a common law of human and that's the power of the Quran he say Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, never does a group of people gathered in any one of the homes of Allah meaning the one of the machines reciting the book of Allah and studying the book of Allah amongst them.
Except that Sakina serenity, tranquility, peace descend upon them.
While she Tamara mercy envelops Futterman melodica. And the angels surround them with a kind of whom love human endeavor. And law actually mentions them to those who are in his company.
effect of reciting the Quran. Allah loves those who recite his glam his speech, his words, a lot takes pride in mentioning to the angels, the angel see them. In fact, there's a narration from Chateau de la one Ha.
That it's a reliable operation that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
the stars have visible, the stars in the sky are visible
to the people of the earth.
The home where the aura is recited, they are also visible to the people of the heaven.
They light up just as the stars of the sky are visible to the people of the earth. The homes wet in the urn is recited
are actually visible to the people of the head.
When the Koran is recited the angels descend,
ma'am Hardyman Muslim both relate to hiding from who the Allah says. And he says that the angels of the night and the angels of the day gather and come together in Frederick Salah. And then he said he brought them what brought an infection in the Quran, fedrick Allah, Masha, that, if you wish, recite the verse of the Quran, where Allah says, and the arm of fetch in the the Quran of fudger is attended, attended by whom? The ancients. So the angels gathered to listen to the law of the poor and specifically in federal law, the angels of the night and the day
in this Hadeeth the angels descend, in order to listen to the dilemma of the poor and whenever people gather, to recite the Quran amongst themselves and to study it. Now countless Hadith of the virtues of the dilemma of the Quran, amin and Chateau de Allah says this hadith is actually more
do with those who are half of the Quran in sha Allah as promised, in one of the coming sessions I will speak about the virtues of memorizing the Quran,
we should all aim to do that, inshallah it can be done. The Quran is miraculous even in this.
And I'll elaborate on its when I speak on the topic of memorization. Otherwise, there is no other word speech, no other book, no other work, no other sentences, words and paragraphs in any language that people can memorize as easily and as fluidly, as
in Arabic. And it's a fact it's a miracle.
People embrace Islam, within a short while they've already memorized few sorts of
in their native language, and not just them, but all of us in our own native tongues. We cannot memorize our own written words.
If we write a paragraph of our own words, our own product, the products of our mind, our own little story paragraph,
and we then try to memorize our own words, it's extremely difficult even in our mother tongue. And if we do manage it, try again the next day, it's gone. You have to keep on repeating it. And even if you do manage to memorize it, it's virtually impossible to retain it. Now, some people do, but they devote all their time to it. They don't do anything else.
And yet on the other hand, a lot more. not one, not two, not memory athletes, not memory performance.
Not memory exhibitionists. But normal children all over the world, on every continent, in every country, from every background and ethnicity, and speakers of all, every tongue, most of them non Arabic speaking children, playfully, whilst living normal lives, they are able to memorize this entire
and retain its memory till death.
That in itself is a miracle.
That in itself is a miracle. So we should all aim to memorize or answer as I was saying, this particular heading has more to do with memorization. It's very beautiful ahaadeeth because first part of it the latter part is not. So opening shot of the alarm high relates in a quote by Mahatma Muslim Rahim Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, this is where the Muslim Ummah Hello bill or animals suffer the army will run away to therapy fee whoo Alisha Rajaram prophets Allah love it. alayhi wa sallam said the experts reciter of the Quran. And the meaning of experts is happy because one of the narrations of hardy says half of them. So one who who memorizes
so one who recites an expertly, he is with the
noble Ambassador angels, these are the angels referred to in the sort of in
the a the suffering karamba. So these are the pious noble Ambassador angels, who have been tasked with the responsibility of preserving the poor and in the heavens. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says one who recites an expertly, he is with the noble pious messenger agents, ie is of the same rank in this not exactly the same rank, but he's with them in the sense that just as they are responsible for Allah uses them employs them to preserve the order and the heavens, a lot employees these are far on earth to preserve the planet.
Then the second part of the heady one lady
Yakubu Khurana, where the director of fee will rarely shop around and one who resides or am with difficulty stuttering and stammering so is not to have it. In fact, he or she experiences great difficulty, unable to pronounce a word properly having to repeat the words, one who stutters and stammers lots of sites in the court.
The word for stuttering and stammering mentioned in the head he is way at the data. And just as normal with Arabic, that word itself is difficult to pronounce. So in Arabic words reflect their meaning. So the word way at the time
That is actually difficult to pronounce. And it means to stutter and to stammer, and to produce some to pronounce something with difficulty. So So Han Allah, so anyone who recites the Koran in such a way that it's difficult for them, and they have they stutter, they stammer and the experience difficulty, what will happen with them? Will they be punished? Will they be held to account? Will they be taken to task? Will they be deprived of reward? Now Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Iran, he or she shall enjoy a W.
One reward for the attempt and one reward for the recitation.
Ma'am Tim is here to learn from Susan Abdullah in the School of the alarm and in which he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said hello from Makita fellow who he has to be actually I'm 30 her, a poodle Islam in her from what I can, when I can le from her from Allah.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says whoever recites one letter from the book of Allah, He shall enjoy one reward and each one good deeds multiplied tenfold. He then says I do not say that Alif Lam mean is one word rather. Elif is one word. Sorry, one letter. Lamb is one letter mean is one letter. So for
Alif Lam mean, one receives three rewards multiplied by 1030. And the remarkable thing about this for the ethers, most of the argument agree.
The le flam mean, it's true meaning is only known to the last panel.
So, one receives a reward even though one does not understand.
So who knows meaning of any flower me?
Most of the time, I agree that true meaning is only known to Allah.
These words Kraft Heinz
have any flour mean barley flour.
So any flour I mean,
without understanding le flam mean, and reciting it, one receives that.
So it's the same for the whole book, even if you don't understand a single letter, allow us to reward you for the recitation of each letter.
And that's for the whole book.
Same will say the whole deal, the law one story are related earlier on, he relates
again from Timothy Rahmatullah, he and a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
Men shovel a hole or an victory was led to who Abdullah is in, in,
in law, economics father in law.
It's very beautiful ID one who is preoccupied in the recitation of the Quran, and as a result, cannot engage in my remembrance or even in asking of me in my garage, Allah says, I shall give him more than I give to those who pass.
And then the end of the Hadith is well for the local army and Allah says
that the superiority of the words of ALLAH is like this over all other speech is like the superiority of Allah of his creation, there is no comparison none whatsoever.
Let us strive to be
of the people
who are alarge chosen ones see that the alarm correlates and I had these recorded by man hamlins mustard, and also by mama widow then in southern province in the love it was seldom saying is sorry, but even imagine as soon as a man Hambling this Muslim Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says
in the Lila Lena minun
Allah Tila min Yasuda La
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah was chosen select people of his of the creation amongst mankind.
So he was asked on messenger of Allah Who are they who are last chosen people, chosen ones. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and the people of
La Hill Hospital. They are the people of Allah and His select his elite chosen
We should strive to follow in the footsteps of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the noble Sahaba hold the alarm. The Koran is a fountainhead of our religion. It's our book of guidance, and we should begin our relationship with the recitation of the Quran. Our relationship with the Quran should consist of three things just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his relationship consisted of three things. last panel with Allah describes him in a number of places throughout the Quran, as
well as his relationship with his relationship with or analyzed described in a number of places in the book.
For instance, we'll have the bath of it mean are sorta minya through it him is the who is a key word.
And that's repeated elsewhere. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his relationship with the Quran three fold, and the one yet through him.
he recites the book, he recites the words of Allah to the people. Number two, we only Muhammad Kitab, one hikmah.
And he teaches in the book and wisdom and number three ways of gi him and he molds them he purifies them, he nurtures them.
This was a relationship of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam with the Torah, and our relationship should be exactly the same. Number one recitation of the law as much as possible.
And once you begin, truly, the joy, the delight.
The peace losses allow the victory lap.
Now that in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find peace, settlements, contentment, it doesn't mean happiness
doesn't mean happiness. we misunderstand.
People say I engaged in the vicar of a last panel with Allah And yet, I'm still sad. I still can't find happiness. Well, how do we define happiness?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
His father passed away before he was born.
He lost his mother when he was six. His grandfather when he was eight,
he got married at the age of 25. To a widow
who had children from two previous marriages.
From that same one woman in the Chateau de la and he had a son,
our son, who died in his infancy, another son Abdullah, who died in his infancy. He had a daughter, Xena. He had a daughter or a year, he had a daughter. He had a daughter, Fatima, in his own lifetime, he witnessed the passing away. But at the age of 50, he lost his dear uncle and worldwide, he lost his wife and one woman in Khadija Don't be alone and she passed away. Then, from the children from that marriage.
Asked him had already passed away, Abdullah had already passed away. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam witnessed the death of his daughter zeyneb and then robia and then consumed. The only one surviving was family modeled the alarm on her, he lost all of his sons in infancy. And then in the eighth year of hedra, a son was born to Informatica could do the Allahu Ibrahim, and within 18 to 20 months, Ibrahim al de lavonne passed away in the arms of Allah Heidi who was on them. He lost all his children. The only one surviving child was Falcon model the love on her and even her he told her even she, he told her, that of my whole family, you will be the first to meet me after my death. And
indeed, six months after he passed away, she joined him. He had no siblings, no brothers, no sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was driven from his home. He faced opposition in Mecca, he suffered abuse, persecution,
filth thrown on him, form strewn in his path. He suffered abuse. He emigrate he had to abandon the city of Makkah, even though he was the most beloved place to him. Upon arrival in Makkah, there were attempts on his life in Makkah, and in Medina, he suffered
trial after trial.
After more sleep, he suffered poverty. And he continued even after the coffers of Medina became filled, he continued to live in simplicity and poverty.
So what is happiness? How could someone be happy in with our understanding of the word happiness
lived such a life. Yet, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was content.
So there's a difference between contentment, the hearts being settled, and being happy. When Allah says Allah decree law.
The law is not telling you that with the vicar of Allah, you will be happy, ie the way we understand it.
Rather, live is promising admit now and tomorrow, Nina, and it means to be settled. That's what it means. It doesn't mean joy. It doesn't mean bliss. It doesn't mean happiness. It means settling damania imagine a coin when you flip a coin, and the coin rotates and then rattles and continues to rattle before it settles that when it settles. Finally, that final settlement is known as it meant Nan and Bomani. That's what a lot of promises. So when Allah says Allah, Allah taught me No, it's not joy, it's not bliss, it's not happiness is contentment. When you are at ease, and you are at peace, within and with everything and everyone around you. Even though you may be afflicted by
misfortune, and trials, that's the promise of a law, degree law.
And the most contentment, you will feel even more than normal that is in the tilava. On the recitation of the
there are countless people.
I knew one
elderly, half of the Quran, who suffered a lot throughout his life. And in his later years, a lot of his practice was,
is to wake up in the morning.
After federal he's to begin that hour of the day. And even though he was a half hour, then he knew the 4am very well. He actually used to never used to recite by heart he used to recite with the Orion. And that's a unique point. Most of the LMR actually agree there's discussion, is it better to recite by heart? Or is it better to recite whilst looking in the eye or animals and most orlimar agree that it's actually better to recite with by looking into the arm, in the most have in the book, even though you may be a half of the bar. It's actually better. And that's how that's how battle the alarm who did it unless, of course, they couldn't at the time, but that was their
favorite practice. So he used to recite the Quran for morning, begin after fetcher, and continue reciting all day is to finish before McLean. And the next morning after fudger. He began again. And this was his practice for years and years and years. Until the last parameter Horta, Allah took him away in that same condition.
And thing is, he would relate how he found total peace in the dilemma. That was his whole life. And he wasn't even a scholar, just the half of the Nazi scholar asked for the scholars, they are able to immerse themselves in the dilemma of the Quran in such a way that they are in another world altogether.
So let us strive to be the ones
of the poor and while the chosen people of our last panel with Allah will increase the lower and recitation make it a habit.
Once a person immerses oneself in the court,
one feels such contentment and such peace and settlement as a lot of promises in the record, that one cannot find anywhere else. But one has to try it. One has to become accustomed to it. One has to immerse oneself. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah enable all of us to enjoy the delights of the increase our dilemma and recitation of the Quran to attach ourselves to the Quran. It is a book of a lost pan of water Allah, it is a Fountainhead and the main source of our guidance, our teachings, our laws, our whole way of life and our religion. And by attaching oneself to the core and
our life will be transformed even if you just begin with the lava insha Allah, but at the same time, also trying to ensure that you act on the Quran because the size that as I said, there were three
dimensions to the prophets of Allah Hansen's relationship with the Quran. The first one was recitation, the two was teaching. So our second duty is to understand that what and I will speak on this on another occasion. Third, just as he used the courtroom to mold us How about all the law? Our greatest responsibility after recitation after understanding the
And reflecting on its meaning and message is to actually apply the teachings of the art in our lives. We must act on that. We must mold ourselves according to the Quran, and I'll end with one final for the youth. This describes both
how the arm can transformers and makers fragrant. So Imam Bukhari Muslim and others all relate this hadith that the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
it's from Abu Musab a shadow the Allahu says that the prophets of the love it send them said the example of that believer who recites the call and acts on it. So the words are we a little bit an X on it
this, the citrus fruit which is its taste is sweet and its smell is fragrant.
And the example of that believer
who does not recite the poor
is like a date is tasted sweet, but there is no fragrance. And the example of that hypocrite that will nerfed who recites the Quran
is like the Rihanna, basil,
herb, it's smell is fragrant, but it's taste as bitter.
And the example of that, that hypocrite who does not recite the Quran is like humbler color sense.
It's it's a fleshy fruit. It's not really well it's considered to be a fruit but it's actually a bitter smell is foul and the taste is bitter as well as not really edible. So, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, the example of that man, that hypocrites who does not recite the Quran is like the handler that collars sin is known as a color synth in English. The color since its taste is bitter, and it's smell and fray it smell is foul. So it's a beautiful description of a monofin.
Who is working backwards, the Collison
The taste is bitter within and the smell is foul without so hypocrites is corrupt within and he has no fragrance because it doesn't recite the Quran. He has no fragrance outside either externally, but the hypocrites who does recite the bottle and we should be very careful. The appearance and the outward exterior, maybe fragrant just like the Rihanna the basil, but the inner taste is bitter ie the interior is corrupt. And then the believer who doesn't recite the bottle and the believer is pious and sincere.
But even though their interior is sweet slyke the date there's no smell to it, no fragrance whatsoever. But that believer who recite the Quran and acts on it is like the Citron, whose smell is fragrant externally and who is sweet and with it. So we should try to even though we we do so much we may pray we may practice we may try to live our lives.
According to the teachings of alarms that are Sol Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam, we should at least ensure that that the law of the Quran is not missing from our lives. We should attempt to recite the Quran on a daily basis, as much as possible. There are so many stories of how the older man and the pious would recite the Quran. We don't even need to go back to the earliest centuries, even in the last century. There are examples of the teachers of the Grand teachers of my teachers, some of whom are in their 80s there were over 80 years old, they could not walk 20 paces without leaning against the wall and without stopping for breath. That's how old and frail they were. Yet the power of the
poor animal such that even though they could not walk 20 paces without stopping and leaning against the wall to catch their breath in their extreme old age and frailty. When it came to the 100 solar on the poor on that same teacher in extreme old age, would be able to stand for three hours reciting the
strength comes from somewhere else.
And again, another one of my grand great grand teachers.
He was traveling on a ship to to the Holy Land, and on the ship, not the modern day cruise ships, but rather than in the
In the earliest ships of the last century, the most people would suffer from seasickness, and he was unable to stand even for a few moments without falling ill. But when it came to that are we and that damn lane, he was able to stand for hours on end reciting the Quran and listening to the
they draw their strength from somewhere else. That's the power of the Holy Quran. So we should try to ensure that although we may be doing good in other ways, our lives should not be void and empty of the Devourer of the Quran. Begin slowly and in sha Allah, if you persist, you may actually see the day when you yourself will be able to complete one his one Manzil on a daily basis, completing the Quran in seven days. And Allah grant is even more dolphy like many of the people you may even be able to complete one or
many have done it's many continue to do it. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah enable all of us to appreciate the beauty of the male lawmakers amongst those who are attached to the or and who are the people of the Quran was Allahumma salli.
ala nabina Muhammad, wa The early 70s means more panic and show the world
