00:03:24--> 00:03:31

from respected elders and brothers, my dear mothers and sisters Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:03:32--> 00:04:18

I take this pleasure and opportunity in welcoming one and all to this particular broadcast. And from the outset, I asked a lot to calahorra Tyler with his most beautiful of late and elevated qualities to make our virtual gathering one, that he has a good word and follows his teachings and to make our virtual gathering as well. A gathering that is forgiven. Upon his departure. I also asked a lot to Canada who was either to get us all in gentlemen, in the same way he has gathered us here in this particular program today. Now, before delving into the topic for this evening, which is based on the verse of a muscle kind of water Allah,

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

terrible answer now who yreka move out of

00:04:23--> 00:04:24


00:04:27--> 00:04:40

And we concentrating on a particular part of this verse, if you have double is so that they may reflect over its verses. Now, before delving into that. I'd like to first and foremost,

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

make clear to one off that your presence in this particular webinar, in this particular gathering is not a mere presence, but indeed, it is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So from now, purify your intention and make your presence solely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:00--> 00:05:51

For this is an act of worship and for any acts of worship to be accepted, it is incumbent and 13 that two factors are met. And one of those factors are a class that we purify our intention and make our worship only for a lot to kind of hope with Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, one minute O'Meara Illa Leah Abu Maha Maha Dena for the fact that they will not command except that they worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and worship none but him alone. And in the hadith of Omar of your loved one, riposte Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, actions are not judged except by the intention in them and a man will be Yeah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect our time together from

00:05:51--> 00:06:42

being void of rewards from being not only void of rewards, but also being void of knowledge, because the lesson is, even knowledge remains far away from the insincere and a statement from the pious predecessors used to stay one of the nlra does not leave a real lack of a clue that that we sought knowledge for other than Allah but alas, knowledge refused to be except for Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Almighty save us all, Allah whom in the Ruby community adaboost rickerby cache and one unanimity when a stuffed female animal. Yeah, a lot. We seek your protection from associating partners with you knowingly and we ask you for forgiveness from associating partners with you

00:06:42--> 00:06:43


00:06:44--> 00:07:28

As for the second point before delving into the topic and it is relevant and appropriate given that today is Thursday night and Thursday night is the night that precedes the day of GMO on the day which Allah subhanho wa Taala has made a day of eat in the wake of a Muslim day that he has granted to Omar Rasul Allah, Allah He will sell them and has not gone through any other Omar this particular day. So you cognisance is deserved here. And I refer you to the hadith of Abu hurayrah of your loved one in Sahih Muslim where he says, of a volume in para la he shampoo yomo. Juma The Holy Father, what do you feel or feel free to reach me? What has happened was, we left

00:07:30--> 00:08:15

a veneer of yoga one reports that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the best day upon which the sun rises is the day optimara. On this particular day, Allah subhanho wa Taala created Adam ID that was Salah. And on this particular day, Allah subhanho wa Taala entered him into Gemini. And on the same day, Allah subhanho wa Taala removed him from gender. And then he completed the Hadith from a level and he was sitting there saying, What a fool was sir, in the field, that the coming of the hour will not take place, except on the day of tomorrow May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst gentlemen from amongst the people of gentlemen, when we meet him on the day of

00:08:16--> 00:09:04

me. So be sure to observe the etiquettes related to the day of tomorrow, don't let this day run away from us. Indeed, our opportunities are limited for our life span is also limited. And let us ensure that we grab that special hour on the day of tomorrow, whereby Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam caught us that if a person actually supplicates and asked from our last panel a gala during this hour, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not let this day or that particular day, go on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who are successful. I mean, the listeners, as mentioned earlier, our topic today is a double. Now when we say a jumbo, we clearly understand from this that

00:09:04--> 00:09:14

we're not talking about the actual recitation of our prime, which is in the Arabic language known as Tara nor are we going to speak about listening to our

00:09:16--> 00:09:18

movie, no, are we going to speak about the actual

00:09:20--> 00:09:25

memorizing or are we going to restrict ourselves to this,

00:09:26--> 00:09:57

this concept and aspect of reflection, which is the double and this ability of ours or the ability that we should have within ourselves to ponder and reflect over the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. For indeed, if we look at the oma at large, we find that this particular quality, this quality of reflecting and pondering over the loss of Hannah who Allah is a quality that we as an oma have let's begin now the double is from

00:10:10--> 00:10:57

The devil would refer to the ability of a person to refer his heart, or engage his heart, while referring to something which he sees something which he hears something which he learns so as to understand the deeper meaning that exists within that particular thing that he's looking at, or listening to, or actually learn. So, when we look at something, for example, we see a reality. But when we engage our heart, along with witnessing, or sorry, along with viewing that particular reality, we stop seeing, and we start witnessing. So this is the difference. There's a difference between these variables, there's a difference between seeing something and witnessing something. And

00:10:57--> 00:11:11

the same way with hearing, if we engage our heart, during our hearing, we will stop here, and we will start listening. And there's a difference between hearing and listening. And the same way with

00:11:13--> 00:11:31

learning, if we engage our hearts, once we learn, we will stop learning and we will start understanding so that actually takes us from one level to a higher level. And this is what is intended, was the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now this is not specific to

00:11:33--> 00:12:20

for Allah subhanho wa Taala in his book channels as towards reflecting and pondering over everything else that is in existence, such as the human being, such as the mountains, such as the skies in the heavens, etc. So Allah subhanho wa Taala channels us and speaks about these things and asks us to ponder and reflect over it although we can safely say that the greatest example and the greater reflection and fumbling in that language because the Quran in turn channels us towards actually reflecting over these other aspects. So double glss is a very important quality. In fact, it is the quality that a Muslim should possess to ensure that he or she constantly learns Sophia and even

00:12:20--> 00:12:30

Arianna would frequently recite the same when a man is given to reflection, he finds a lesson in everything so Panama, and he would frequently recite the saying why,

00:12:32--> 00:12:54

to remind himself to continuously ponder because if you ponder you learn, and the more one learns, through reflection, the more he or she understands Allah subhanho wa Taala and why not a lot of people who is Allah is the Creator of everything with Allah Subhana who are gonna not say in nappy hollow is some

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

lady was

00:13:01--> 00:13:03

it really only

00:13:05--> 00:13:32

supernovae Allah Allah, did Allah subhanho wa Taala not say that very early in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of the night and the day are science for men of understanding. Now, let us ponder with this verse. Our science for men of understanding, who are these people of understanding? Yeah, a lot of loss of credit or diagnosis, and Levy, who are happy

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

to be him? Why

00:13:41--> 00:13:41


00:13:42--> 00:13:46

he one of vilamoura, foreigner

00:13:48--> 00:14:33

Rila. To Pamela, listen to these people that are also part of what got me personally, this verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Those who remember Allah subhanho wa Taala, while standing while sitting, and whilst lying down, and they reflect over the creation of the heavens in the earth, our Lord, You have not created this in vain. Subhan Allah, so Allah subhanho wa Taala here praises these people and what is the quality that they possess the quality to reflect the quality to ponder over the reality that they live in Subhana Allah am in an authentic hadith in the sooner we find, has essentially the dilemma of your loved one came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once in

00:14:33--> 00:15:00

the morning to inform him of the surge of prayer, and he found Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam weeping. So below robiola and said O Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why are you crying when Allah has forgiven your past and future sins? So Pamela, listen to her for the last hour. I think he will tell them tip Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said some verses have been revealed to me tonight.

00:15:01--> 00:15:50

And these verses are the verses that have just decided before the last of them said, some verses have been revealed to me tonight. And woe to the one who reads them and does not contemplate them. Illa Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those that ponder and reflect always versus constantly, I mean, now, when we look in the books of Allah that discuss the dump or like demand will be and the various mufa soon, we find them sometimes using the Arabic term to denote reflection and pondering. They sometimes use this word, the double In fact, this is what is mostly used, but they also is another term in the Arabic language known as the hukou. And there is a third name in

00:15:50--> 00:16:09

the Arabic language that is called la de la. So we find sometimes when they're dealing with the chapter of pondering, they say, the chapter of the double foot, or sometimes they say, the chapter of the double what the * cool polarity bar. So the three names basically depicting the same thing, although in the Arabic language,

00:16:10--> 00:16:45

the names might have a slight variance, in terms of usage and evidence of this is in the Quran in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. For those that funda for Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the word good when he speaks about his book, but he uses the word at the *ery majority of the instances when he's challenging us towards taking wholesale from the reality that we live in, such as our life such as the various creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let us cover some verses.

00:16:54--> 00:17:42

If we absorbing that sphere that we in right now, because we're lucky, we are here learning about Al Quran and I've said this is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Hadees comes to mind. Happy to have you for a very robiola one and happy if my memory serves me right is found in Sudan Abu Dawood, and in this study, he mentioned that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said much damage upon the baiting in the utility to Allah it Luna Kitab La Jolla del Valle obey them in the Netherlands. Sakina ocea Toma Rama Halford Malaika, whom Allah Subhana Allah how bless it is our virtual gathering. We're not in the house from the many houses of loss of Hannah who has Allah but

00:17:42--> 00:17:49

we have sort of come together, virtually learning the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala so in this Hadith, he

00:17:52--> 00:17:53

says that,

00:17:54--> 00:18:26

for good doesn't come together in the house from the many houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Learning the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, which is where the dogs obey the home they learned together in LA, de la he was Sakina except that tranquility descends upon them. So Pamela tranquility. And since we're talking about the devil, let's understand why. First of all, loss of a loved one mentioned tranquility because indeed the Koran is a means to soothing our hearts is a means to soothing our

00:18:27--> 00:19:08

internal sadness or depression, if I may use the termination but we will come to that a bit later. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Netherlands let's add a second and then some time Allah tranquility descends upon them learning the book while learning the book of Allah subhana wa tada Well, hersha Rama and they are surrounded with the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala or they are absorbed within the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala will have Petula melodica and they are surrounded with the angels with a kind of humble love of humor into and I've lost kind of what Allah speaks about these people to Panama speaks about these people to those that are with him. He almost

00:19:08--> 00:19:13

mentioned us by name to those that are with him. I mean, so

00:19:15--> 00:19:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala as mentioned earlier speaks about the tempo let's cover some verses in his book dealing with a difficult Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book, I do I had to come and takuna Allah hujan mina philia

00:19:32--> 00:19:33

surgery in intact we have an

00:19:35--> 00:19:38

input this camera will swap over the keyboard

00:19:40--> 00:19:43

for us over here solemn fee now

00:19:45--> 00:19:48

what is the outcome?

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

So take heed of the words that Allah subhanho wa Taala used to set the tone so that they may ponder and reflect and tender for karoon is the phrase

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

In terms of the verb at the first car, so Allah subhanho wa Taala here says, Would any of you like to have a garden of palm trees and grapevines, graced with flowing streams and all kinds of projects, which when you are afflicted with old age and people offspring is suddenly struck by a theory worldwide and burn down. So this is a parable that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in his book, and after mentioning this parable, and enticing us towards reflecting and pondering, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and in this way Allah makes clear his ayat to you, so that you may reflect langnickel

00:20:39--> 00:20:46

then Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in yet another verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, In

00:20:47--> 00:20:49

Sharia dunia

00:20:52--> 00:20:53


00:20:55--> 00:20:57

Eva da trailer for de la

00:20:59--> 00:21:00

Donna Bobby

00:21:04--> 00:21:05


00:21:08--> 00:21:08


00:21:09--> 00:21:11

either an offer that

00:21:13--> 00:21:19

was ziana to 111.

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

He had

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

a Muna Layla in our

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

house Housley,

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

of nerville

00:21:39--> 00:21:42

tea leaf homie at

00:21:44--> 00:22:28

Panama, notice the word again before me get a call. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, the example of the life of the world is like water, which we sent down from the sky, to Panama, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is mentioning to us a reality which we should ponder over. But in regards to this conference, he says yet he uses the word. So Allah subhanho wa Taala continues and says, and it mingles with the vegetation of the earth, from which people and animals eat until when it takes on its full splendor and dunes itself. And it's well I think, that they have power over it. Our command the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala comes to you by night, or by day.

00:22:29--> 00:23:17

And we make it step up to Panama, as if it had not flourished just the day before. And Allah says this is how we explain in detail, our is for a people to reflect upon Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala here, after channeling us towards taking into consideration and offering cognizance to the reality of nature and of our atmosphere, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned to us that all this is so that you can replay Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in yet another verse he says, Allah who live Europa smrtv Ramadan Corona to muster and an option for Saqqara shumsa will come up cool knowing eg really as any Muslim you just be will Amarok you fulfill is

00:23:18--> 00:23:22

really part you know, come to Phoenix. Then Allah says, well, who

00:23:23--> 00:23:37

was your NFC hero as he or an Hara woman Calista Murat. Jana he has Oh Janie's name Yoshi Layla Tao. In Viva Nicola. Yes, before me. Yes. Once again, note the word the

00:23:39--> 00:24:23

last panel was Allah says in refuse adicolor is before me. Yes. So he uses the word panda who was and so Allah says it is a last parable a traveler who raised up the heavens without any police that you can see. Then he ascended over the throne, and he has subjected the sun and the moon. And each of them run its course for an appointed time. He directs all matters, and explains in detail the ayah so that you may have certain faith in the meeting of your Lord. He is the one who stretched out the earth and placed there in firm mountains and rivers and made two kinds of foods para la Zoo Janie's name La ilaha illAllah, Allah subhanho wa Taala didn't say is the causes the night cover the

00:24:23--> 00:24:59

day? These are the signs in that for a people to reflect over and ponder. So hello PLR and I know just as a little footnote for you, that we mentioned xo Jane, that we have lost a ton of work Allah says that we have actually created these foods in pairs. And if we ponder over this particular point, we realize that Allah subhanho wa Taala has created everything in Paris. As Allah subhanho wa Taala said we women will be shaken Harlequin has oj that from everything we have created them in pairs. And what is the wisdom behind behind the spirit that Allah subhana wa Taala has created us

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

Even if we look at ourselves we exist as males and females. If we look at

00:25:06--> 00:25:12

code, we look at temperature we have hot and cold. If we look at distance we are far and near. So we have

00:25:13--> 00:25:22

piercings in everything. And if we ponder over this fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala has stated as it appears, we will come to one conclusion

00:25:23--> 00:25:53

Subhan Allah and that conclusion is that these dualities, if I may use the word, only lead us to the unity of Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala these dualities lead us to the trophy and oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala but only if you want to know servant of Allah, only if you reflected, oh, child of Adam, would you come to understand how these pairings lead to the oneness of Allah, that only the one and perfect being?

00:25:54--> 00:26:38

Is the creator of everything that exists in case of hanabi Allah, may Allah subhanahu wa Tada, grant us this understanding. So there are several verses that we've covered a few times and Pamela is running along. And when you start delving into the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala it's difficult to stop. But before moving on, let me just recite to you a short verse in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says, our lemmya perfect karate and proceed, Murph, Allah, Allah has somewhat well known that they know who will have what edgeley Muslim to handle our lm yes and Dr. roofie. And to see him, Allah subhana wa Jalla says, Have they not reflected about themselves, that Allah demonstrate the

00:26:38--> 00:27:14

heavens and the earth, and that which is in between them, except for the truth for an appointed time. Now, when we speak about us as a creation, and Allah subhanho wa Taala challenge challenging us to actually look into the reality of us as a creation that you are inside have been created from a drop of blood to Panama, Allah subhanho wa Taala as mentioned in several verses, and let's take one verse, for example. There's so many verses we have lots of kind of what Allah speaks about expropriation of man. But you get Allah subhanho wa Taala says, all

00:27:21--> 00:27:27

of us is very creative man from an extract of clay from john

00:27:28--> 00:27:29


00:27:30--> 00:27:35

McKean, then we placed him as a drop of seed in a circular logic.

00:27:40--> 00:27:56

Then, we fashion the top into a truck for Hola Hola, Lara for demo Dubois, then we fashioned the plot into a piece of flesh for Hola, Conan, mobile, aka Yvonne. Then we fashion

00:27:57--> 00:28:03

this piece of flesh into bones, and then I want some kind of work on essays for Capstone.

00:28:05--> 00:28:10

Then we close the bones with flesh, whom

00:28:12--> 00:28:53

who call upon fabu La Ilaha Illa. Allah subhanho wa Taala is when we produce it as a letter creation. Now, what would you say after hearing all this, and pondering and reflecting, we have nothing to say except that which Allah subhanho wa Taala said, further the law who asks for the beam, so blessedly Allah subhanho wa Taala, the best of creators, and it was my intent to delve into the reality of our creation, but unfortunately, time is sliding by and that's why there is a famous saying in the Arabic language that I want to say inland power copper at that

00:28:54--> 00:29:04

time is like a sword. If you don't cut it, it will cut you Subhanallah How appropriate This statement is. Now, after completing

00:29:05--> 00:29:06

these verses,

00:29:07--> 00:29:46

and understanding how Allah subhanho wa Taala has used a different quote in his book, and actually insha Allah, I hope having had a little bit of an amine rush because how can we not after seeing Allah Subhana Allah kind of mentioning to us directly these realities and then channeling us towards contemplating and reflecting over them indeed, it's something that makes the heart tranquil. It's something that sort of ties us and makes us closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala we also partner with Allah grant us a heart that ponders army. So after discussing the fact let us move on onto the dub book. What's the

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

according synonymously with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:30:04--> 00:30:16

The poor on info versus info versus we find the last panel without actually dealing with this word the devil and he mentioned it synonymously with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:30:19--> 00:30:26

Now, dear listeners I started off the talk saying that we will not discuss and speak about

00:30:27--> 00:30:49

reciting or memorizing it or listening to it even though indeed in all these aspects are a great few. But dear listener, oh servant of Allah, oh child of ad o family often know and understand that Allahu Allah, may Allah dku are

00:30:50--> 00:30:57

wonderful and Mozilla dku stellar or LA he will talk about what will I do my own Zilla, leaky

00:30:59--> 00:31:02

balloon Zilla? The devil is what do you

00:31:03--> 00:31:21

know and understand that this plan was not revealed to only be recited nor was it revealed to only be memorized, nor was it revealed to only be listened to it was revealed so that we as an owner can ponder over it versus for a while. So canowindra said he taboo.

00:31:26--> 00:31:28

Linear def vo

00:31:29--> 00:31:30


00:31:34--> 00:32:16

I was gonna say is a blessing but we have revealed to Muhammad so that you people so that they may ponder over expressed and that those of understanding will remember, unfortunately, today we live with the sinners, we find that our prerogative many a time with Allah subhanho wa Taala. His book has become this aspect of finishing it in the fastest manner, finishing it as quick as possible. And as some of the youth might say, today, as if we are cruising with the shoemaker shoe Pamela, or we find that our goal has become the most number of times that we can finish the book in a specific month, or in a specific week, or in the month of Ramadan, as if our association with the book of

00:32:16--> 00:32:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala has become a mere norm, rather than any reverb and act of worship Panama. Also in regards to listening to the forum, we here today full blown discussions over dinner, or over any appropriate gathering over which we you know, people discuss which party has the best voice and which Mr. Should be reciting in the huddle next year, and which Imam should be given for a class instead of eight Subhanallah as if the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala only takes place based on the voice of data. Now, some of us may be laughing over our computer screens at the moment. I mean, I don't know if the very jazz is logged in, but

00:33:00--> 00:33:43

respects are sad. And they have to be addressed rather than swept under the carpet Now don't get me wrong, I'm not soliciting one and all to give our CDs of our favorite besides is away at the next wedding as a wedding. You know, even though giving the bride and groom a copy of our Quran or recitation of it would be an appropriate gift. But I'm not saying that pls. I'm not asking us to stop listening to Al Quran. And I'm not asking us to stop memorizing it, nor am I asking us to stop listening to it. I am saying that it is incumbent and important that we strike the balance and add to our timetable is not specific to tempo is not specific to pondering and reflecting over the

00:33:43--> 00:34:05

verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala for this is the greater objective behind the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala his book, as we have heard in the previously recited persons, even Obama robiola, he mentioned that his father or mother or father will be on that one. And you know how wonderful it is that a son can speak about his father this way. But anyway, he's saying that aroma

00:34:06--> 00:34:12

of your loved one took years to Panama years to complete war and

00:34:14--> 00:34:29

just one chapter in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He took years to complete it, not days, not weeks, not months, but years to Panama. Because he was not reading it to finish it. He was pondering over it.

00:34:30--> 00:35:00

And for those who find that it will take a long time, others longer, others it might take them a bit longer. But this all goes back to how aware we are of Allah subhanho wa Taala based on how long we have lived reflecting and pondering over the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala and in the sooner we find the Kosovo masala while he was sending them spend an entire night reciting a verse from an Quran and so in the sooner we

00:35:00--> 00:35:12

Find the possible loss of a loved one to spend, spend the entire night reciting the verse we have last panel with the elevation is it so that was Salam on the day of pmsa. In two vivre homes in

00:35:14--> 00:35:15

one fell

00:35:17--> 00:35:18


00:35:19--> 00:36:11

love, Hakeem, have Allah subhanaw taala excited for the entire night, diverse we have lots of handwerker that if you forgive them, then you are Allah, or they are to you, Allah, your worshipers. And if you forgive them, then you are the most you are as if you are the most exalted in mind, and you are the most wise handle my entire life, loss of a loved one very over this verse. And for those who actually spend time and ponder over this particular verse, we will indeed find tears filling the eyes, and they will indeed find the heart becoming heavier last time with Allah grant us these important abilities and further evidence that actually teaches us the importance of the duckboard

00:36:11--> 00:36:43

exist in the fact that Allah subhanahu Allah revealed for an over a period of 23 years and not in one chunk, thus allowing the Muslims to contemplate and digest the prophets lessons that exists within it. Thus having an ability to apply the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala in every aspect of their lives, as the Quran, even though it was revealed over 1400 years ago, is still a guide for us all until the AMA supernovae Allah Allah what an eloquent miracle and gift to the unmarketable of Allah for Allah he was.

00:36:44--> 00:37:13

Further proving the significance of the devil is that Allah subhana wa Taala discusses in a negative manner those before us who specialized in just reading the books without giving any cognizance towards understanding it. That's enlightening the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not to tread those paths, have you not read in your book or servant of Allah? We our last panel who Allah says what many whom, on the unit layer Allah Moodle kita. In Pamela, or in Whom

00:37:15--> 00:37:26

have you not read we Allah subhanho wa Taala said, and they are amongst them, meaning the Jews, the unlimited ones who do not know anything about the Scripture, except to merely read.

00:37:27--> 00:37:42

And this is the Tafseer of imovr show Kenny, the famous German scholar, he says, irony in this particular verse means okera, that they know nothing about the scripture ship to nearly recycle. So canon law and even actual, who also has written a treatise

00:37:44--> 00:38:05

in association with the book of Allah, Allahu Allah says that this verse refers to those that recite the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala in haste, aiming to complete it, without contemplating open messages that exists within them. So a clear message here teaching us that the reality is quality, not quantity, we need to

00:38:08--> 00:38:35

we need to construct ourselves upon this very important concept and that is the concept of quality rather than quantity. Allah subhanho wa Taala also mentioned regarding the people have the Torah and the inability with the books and the distance from the important aspect of pondering and reflecting over the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala said methodology in a formula Torah, for millennia below her commentary Maria

00:38:36--> 00:38:58

Han Allah Allah says the likeness of those who are entrusted with the obligation of the Torah, but subsequently failed in those obligations is as the likeness of your donkey who carries huge burdens of books without actually understanding what is in them. We are most proud of what that Africa has gone. And now our question may arise

00:39:00--> 00:39:10

in our minds that we busy speaking here about quantity, about quality and not quantity, but we find narrations from the previous

00:39:12--> 00:39:37

from the Center for silence from our pious predecessors that actually mentioned that these to complete or some of them is to complete the Quran in one night. I say to you that yes, this is true. But this is not something which is contradictory to what I've mentioned earlier, because it is important as well, for us to recycle are uncertain. And yet blue would allow us as we would say, in the Arabic language is there's nothing wrong

00:39:38--> 00:40:00

for us to actually recite the Quran in a continuous manner. In fact, this is needed especially for those that are memorizing the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala to sort of fix the hip and also to earn the bountiful rewards that exists within the letters of grant remember that every letter that you read, is equal to a person and they have some is equal to temporary

00:40:00--> 00:40:39

Words. So if you say anything mean, just in those three letters is better you want to panela. And also, it is important that we recite the Quran so as not to fall within the category of those that have abandoned the Quran. So yes, we must recite the Quran. And it is possible for us to finish the Quran in this manner. However, it shouldn't be our norm. And this is what I'm trying to make clear here. It shouldn't be our norm. We should have a program whereby we recite the Quran, we memorize the Quran, we listen to the plan, but as well as that we should have a program in which we make sure that we are pondering and reflecting over the first couple of hours, even if it's one person a week

00:40:39--> 00:40:52

to Pamela, but the program should be in place, because what law he this book is your constitution and my constitution? Are we not most deserving to be aware of our constitution? Well, our law indeed we're

00:40:54--> 00:41:07

now just moving along really quickly before time runs out on us, I want to discuss something very important and that is, what are those factors that really prevent us from

00:41:15--> 00:41:49

I'm going to try and just choose the most pertinent ones, those that really apply for our situation today. Now, the first reason that actually hinders somebody from actually contemplating and fully understanding the intended meanings in the verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala is sin, because sin DLS in his darkens the heart, and a dark heart cannot have in it, the light of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is the knowledge of Sharia, Allah subhana wa tada says, sir, are three four iron

00:41:50--> 00:42:32

levena yetta kept bonus will reveal how Allah says, I will turn away from my science, those who are arrogant to ponder, to Pamela so we need to ensure that we don't remain a person. We shouldn't be arrogant, we should always turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and seek forgiveness, even condemned by the famous humble despoiler explains that remaining upon Allah's disobedience at the level we speaking about remaining upon whereby you sin, and you don't regret yourself, you don't ask Allah subhana wa Taala to forgive you. Because committing a sin is something which is not foreign to everyone in creation, we are already qualified in South Africa last panel was anticipated as weak.

00:42:32--> 00:43:05

So the issue is not a falling into some but the issue is remaining upon itself. The issue is refraining from asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for forgiveness fast acting in a state of edits, then we were almost proud of what Allah has said about those who are under contract law says I will turn away my silence from those who are at the contract, and it will put them up, explained this way he says that those who remain upon Allah subhanho wa Taala as disobedience, Allah subhanho wa Taala prevents them from actually reflecting over his book, as selling is a cause for the heart to become dark.

00:43:07--> 00:43:53

Knowledge, dear listeners is a light and a result of reflection and tempo. So if we have a dark heart, in which no light can make it radiant, then how are we able to detect them front over the verse of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we may have heard the famous saying of the membership, and we don't even have a sharpie with somebody who, Mashallah, yeah, he could memorize things very quickly. In fact, some of the Romans claimed that when he was reading a book, he would have to cover the the information on the next part of the page so that he could concentrate on that reading because he's a martial law of love wrestling with the ability to absorb information. And Mr. Musharraf here is

00:43:53--> 00:44:00

saying Shaco to Eli was here into a hippie for our shoddily in a Tolkien galaxy, where all of the

00:44:05--> 00:44:48

caribou acid panela He says, I complained to her here and we're here he said to be his teacher. I complained to him regarding my poor ability to memorize. So he steered me towards the abandonment of sin. And he said to me, that knowledge is a light, meaning knowledge is radiant, and the light from Allah subhanho wa Taala does not come to a center, Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those that constantly seek repentance, take us from amongst those that constantly make way to removing these dark spots that will cover our hearts as a result of sin. And we almost kind of work and live in rural America and the mood of knowledge, shine and be radiant from our hearts. I mean,

00:44:49--> 00:45:00

the second aspect that can hinder one from actually pondering and reflecting over the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala is this aspect of having an app, mind and a busy house.

00:45:00--> 00:45:24

During the recitation of the Quran, now, this is something which is difficult, because shavon is always late, he can't stop you from worshiping Allah, He will affect the way that you worship Allah. And we all know in Salah that, you know, when we standing up, preparing to render our Salah, everything is fine. But the moment you say Allahu Akbar, we start thinking of the money that we might have lived in our country holding our vehicles, we start thinking of

00:45:26--> 00:46:07

the knock on our doors and might have not locked them. If it's a sister, she might be thinking of something that's cooking on the stone, or that she might have forgotten to switch up the aim or the stove, etc. So shavon at these times, attacks us because remember, it doesn't mean that he couldn't prevent you from rendering a salad that is going to give you that he's going to start working on the quality of the Salah. The same way. When we read the Quran, Shere Khan comes to us with a million in one whispers, making ourselves absent, so that we stop pondering and deliberating properly over the reality of the verses that we actually decided. Now, a busy heart or servant of Allah is a recipe

00:46:07--> 00:46:33

for disaster. And the whole lecture is needed to deal with the central topic. But as a summary will tell you a lot summarizes it very beautifully. He says that the heart exists in three forms. And for those who want to read further and have Arabic capabilities, they can see the book modality to study him. So he says in this book that the heart exists. In three states, the first state is the length of his heart.

00:46:34--> 00:46:59

The second state is a heart that is alive, it has lived. But the more of this particular heart is like that of a good heart, meaning it's always absent. It's an absent heart with no cognitive and perceptive ability, there are lots of panels gonna save us one. And then he mentioned the third heart, which is a heart We should strive, we should all strive to have and that is the heart that is alive.

00:47:10--> 00:47:16

We communicate fully with our foreign when we recycle, we bring together our perceptive and cognitive abilities.

00:47:20--> 00:47:37

Our hearts, steadfast, that be from those factors that hinder us actually, taking home feel, from the bountiful lessons in the verses of Quran is that we don't understand the Quran. And this is something that might sort of apply to a lot of us here, because

00:47:38--> 00:47:46

not all of us are from those that have a level of fluency with the Arabic language. So this is something which

00:47:47--> 00:48:16

indeed is a case. But what is more for the travesty in this? Are those people in society that actually use this as an excuse and justify the no care attitude when it comes to understanding the book of Allah? subhanho wa Taala? Is the Quran not our book and constitution? Is the Quran? Or is this aspect of us actually understanding our condition? Our Constitution, not a right upon us? So Pamela, how can we use these arguments

00:48:17--> 00:48:19

as an excuse to sort of

00:48:21--> 00:49:03

justify our distance from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So our inability with the Arabic language is truly not an excuse. Why is it not an excuse? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala has brought the Quran the Quran to us today, translated and hamdulillah into English form and Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted us within our societies people of knowledge, who are capable and able to explain to us the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But it is but it is for us to strive and seek this knowledge, and read the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And visit the School of Art so as to understand better, it is ironic that we learn in our different professions, various words of other

00:49:03--> 00:49:46

languages, so that we sort of reach the highest positions in our world, we possess professions, but without kohan we don't sort of feel the need and importance to utilize our energies in this particular regard. And this is a central question that I pose to all of you, that is the poor and not more deserving of our time, of our energy of our striving, subtle question that commands are supposed to devise ourselves no muscle panel without a conscious understanding. The fourth aspect of this is very important, so I won't leave it out. That people actually distance themselves from distance themselves from actually pondering over the book of Allah subhanahu attallah is that they

00:49:46--> 00:49:59

fear speaking about the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala without knowledge. Now, your fear is a valid one. For those who say we are scared that we are going to speak about the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. without knowledge, this fear is a valid one and the Sharia has moved

00:50:00--> 00:50:13

against those that speak about the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala without knowledge. And in fact today we have those who specialize how to be left. They specialize in speaking about the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now,

00:50:15--> 00:50:51

these people don't realize that they are, in fact helpers to shavon because they are assisting for your party and misguiding the oma they will not protect us and save us all. However, we need to look at this area holistically as a whole, there is no contradiction in our Sharia. The Quran cannot instruct us to ponder over the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then we find something in the sooner telling us not to speak about the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. without knowledge and the venom I have discussed this. And the reality of it here listeners is that there's a difference between Pepsi and Coke. There's a difference between Pepsi and

00:50:52--> 00:51:33

it is what we have seen that the Sharia warns us against speaking about the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala without money. So don't talk about particular words in the book of Allah Subhana Allah and say, I think it means this No, if you say that then you are sinful, even if your guess was correct, you are sinful. Why? Because you have spoken without it. So when it comes to Tafseer, yes, refrain from speaking about the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, you cannot do terrible, you cannot reflect over the verses of Aleppo and unless you've understood what Ron is actually saying, and to understand what the Quran is saying, we have to go back to the books of proceed. And we have to

00:51:33--> 00:51:38

revise the whole ama that Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed us in our communities. And that is why when

00:51:40--> 00:51:54

the person came to Omar will have power of your loved one, and said to him, was that he at that one? time he let you withdraw? But it generally is useless. And then he asked for more of that What does this mean? What does what that he

00:51:56--> 00:52:35

said was the year the borrower is speaking about a whim and if I didn't hear Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say this? I would have not said it. And from hamelech you will para is talking about the clouds. And if I didn't hear us Rasul Allah, Allah He was in let's say this, I would have not, I would not have said it fell. Jerry, as you saw, this particular verse is talking about the ships and had I not heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying it, I would have not mentioned it. So this is obscene. Oh sevens have a lot and was perceived, be careful to speak about the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala without knowledge. Now, someone might say that give us an

00:52:35--> 00:52:40

example of the fear in the temple. And in some of the series, what I've just mentioned

00:52:43--> 00:53:03

the story of Omar Fabiola, one with this particular question, but an example of the W for example, would be in the fact that steak reverse for example, Allah subhanho wa Taala commanding Mousavi salatu salam and his brother to go to Iran and speak to them a kind way. So apparently we have seen what Allah Subhana Allah has told

00:53:04--> 00:53:10

Musa Musa alayhis salam and his brother. Now if we ponder over this particular verse,

00:53:11--> 00:53:35

we will come to an understanding that if Allah subhana wa, told Moosa and his brother, to speak, to figure out this arrogant individual who claimed lordship in a soft, mild and kind manner, than I should speak to my Muslim brothers and sisters in a different kind of man. This is what the devil is TLS is taken out of us, for example,

00:53:37--> 00:54:16

the verses that are cropping up in my mind are all related to the use of an eye. I would want to keep you in suspense, or you come and let those points from the course for you because of us, let's talk about Ibrahim alayhi salatu wa sallam, when he says by either married to for who he is for that was not me saying that when I become sick, Allah subhanho wa Taala actually, now for someone who wanders over this verse, they will see here, an instruction from Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam of how to speak to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And how to speak about Allah subhanho wa Taala and how to conduct ourselves in our da Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam didn't say when Allah makes me sick, the

00:54:16--> 00:54:59

grants mature, even though it is Allah subhanho wa Taala whose decree is the reason why we become sick. He said when I become sick, he didn't attribute it here to Allah subhanho wa Taala directly and this is how we learn the etiquettes and adequate Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is the devil, this is the devil. But no one should say that he or she for example, in this particular verse means this without going back to the books of cursive so May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding time has really passed us by law he it makes us wonder how people managed to get 211 vessels in two days in Manchester, especially when it will pay him or him or her law set.

00:55:00--> 00:55:51

That surah Yousuf is a is a chapter that has more than 1000 verses in Pamela imagine 111 verses and in these verses are more than 1000 lessons La ilaha illa Allah. So, dear listener, let me leave you with some statements of our pious predecessors in regards to setup of the light, asked Ahmed, Durga, what was the best act of worship that I would know that would perform? She said, he used to reflect and take heat, for the light of faith is a reflection. And the best of these is caution and reflection. And reflection for an hour is better than praying the whole night. Pamela, dear servant of Allah, Al Hassan wrote Rama bin Abdullah as he and he said know that reflection leads to good and

00:55:51--> 00:56:07

acting upon that good old children of Adam, Muhammad bin Ravi said, If I were to spend all night until the morning reciting either 00 till Abu Zubaydah, Allah and Allah

00:56:08--> 00:56:24

and nothing else, repeating them, and reflecting over the verses in these particular chapters, that could be more preferable to me than to read the whole Quran quickly. So Panama. This is the Sunnah of our pious predecessors, Allah

00:56:27--> 00:57:08

subhanaw taala. These are our pious predecessors, so come to me with those that resemble them. And even better Allah subhanho wa Taala says, ooh, La La Vina has a law, that the Buddha homothetic that these are, those are the people that have lost sight of what Allah has guided. So use as your guidance the guidance of those people. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us the understanding of everything mentioned here over our broadcast, maybe protect us from ever abandoning his book, we facilitate for us the actual setting of his book, making shower us with divine guidance constantly. We almost have a tailor made for us for those that are protective of his book, when he opened our

00:57:08--> 00:57:34

hearts towards the temple and May Allah subhanho wa Taala place our place our efforts on our scales of good deeds in the hereafter. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us gift while he's pleased with us, May He grant us shade underneath his average from the view of Fiamma And may Allah subhanho wa Taala contrast gentlemen, with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I love you all for the sake of Allah. And I'm truly grateful for your attendance and I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala gathers us

00:57:36--> 00:58:17

in gender the same way he has gathered us over this broadcast today. And before that really gather us together in Manchester insha Allah in April, as we hope to benefit all together, everything correct said during this broadcast is from Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most perfect and any mistakes are from my self and shaper and ask Allah Subhana who was Allah is given us do listeners have so much that I wanted to share with you but alas, an hour is not enough. But Alhamdulillah if we have benefited from this we have benefited rewards in the form that we have studied the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala either we have also in shaba taken an

00:58:17--> 00:58:36

understanding of how to deal with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala today, and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best to Pamela he will become the to Heineken Lomo it will become DITA pleasure to Allah, Allah. And the stockbroker. When a to buoy Lake wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
