Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My dearest Brothers and Sisters in Islam He Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you all, may he showered upon you. Contentment, peace, tranquility, mercy, and when Allah subhanho wa Taala except from us our month and bless our worship, I mean, you are welcome to episode two of our Ramadan series moments with Allah subhanahu wata Brothers and Sisters in Islam, Imam Muslim. He relates to us a hadith on the authority of Abu Huraira robiola, Juan and this hadith is authentic for his compilation of hadith is authentic and obliterate Allah who teaches us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said much Tamako Molefi Bateman booty la heeta Allah yet Luna

00:00:48--> 00:01:28

Kitab Allah or yet to dato suna Hema baina home in the Netherlands and he was Sakina Well, she had to Marama and Allah will have Futterman Malika La Ilaha illa Allah, Allah Cara, whom Allah Who HeMan and Allah who has such a beautiful narration Brothers and Sisters in Islam, through moments with Allah subhanahu wa that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that there's no group of people who come together in the house from the houses of Allah to study the book of Allah subhanho wa taala, meaning the Quran to recite it and to learn its teachings and its instructions. There's no group of people who do this, except that Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses them with four blessings.

00:01:28--> 00:02:12

Number one, Allah subhanho wa Taala causes contentment and serenity and tranquility to descend upon the hearts and chest and souls Subhanallah number two, Allah subhanho wa Taala causes them to be engulfed in the Mercy of Allah subhana Huerta and it's not just about Allah's Mercy descending upon them, but it descends upon them in such a way that they become engulfed by Allah subhanho wa Taala as messy as number two, the third gift, Allah subhanho wa Taala causes angels to descend upon this gathering and to encircle the gathering, so that the borders of this gathering are filled with the angels of Allah subhanho wa Taala Halo law, what's number four? The fourth gift? Allah Subhana Allah

00:02:12--> 00:02:35

mentions the people of this gathering to His angels, Han Allah, what would we pay Brothers and Sisters in Islam to have just one of these four gifts, but Allah subhanahu Allah teaches us via his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we can have all four by having a unique relationship with the Quran. Now there's many talking points from this narration Brothers and Sisters in Islam we've just highlighted

00:02:36--> 00:03:13

perhaps the most important point, but let's go through this narration in stages very quickly. Firstly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there's no group of people that gather in a house from the houses of Allah is or binning this particular narration, and the rewards mentioned therein are these rewards specific to those who seek knowledge only in the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning they come together to learn the Quran to recite the Quran only in a masjid? Or do they qualify to receive these rewards if they learn the book of Allah subhanahu atoll and recite the book of Allah subhanho wa taala, collectively,

00:03:15--> 00:03:22

outside of the masjid, it might be even online, right? We know during COVID Everything went online and before COVID There were many

00:03:23--> 00:03:40

facilitating applications, online applications that connected teachers to classes and collectively in a virtual sense. People read the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. And people studied the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. What about those who do so in an Islamic Seminary in a university or in a,

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

a building establishment?

00:03:45--> 00:04:28

Do these rewards apply to them? And the scholars of Islam Islamic scholarship state that yes, these rewards apply to them. And as for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam mentioning particularly in a house from the houses of Allah, this is an idea that falls under the category of her Raja Maharaj, Alhaji Harada Maharaj and Holly PISA is a principal found in the books of jurisprudence methodology also ruled FIP and it denotes that sometimes we have narrations that state something however, it doesn't denote that the rewards or the body of the instruction is connected to that statement, but rather that statement was shared because that was a norm at the time. So when the Prophet sallallahu

00:04:28--> 00:05:00

alayhi wasallam said the house from the house of Allah, because the norm at the time was that people gathered in measured number we are they gathered in a masjid, to seek knowledge and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself, he held his classes in in Masjid Nabawi after migration from Mecca to Medina. So the rewards are not specific for those who recite the Quran, collectively and studied the Quran, collectively in a masjid, but rather the rewards are specific to the act itself. So wherever the act is done, then these rewards apply to it. So this is point

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

Number one, oh another point. Then we learn that Allah subhanho wa Taala causes contentment to descend upon this group of people why Brothers and Sisters in Islam no doubt they are in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala not just any remembrance the greatest remembrance why because this circle of knowledge here is connected and dedicated to the Quran, we find a testament, the timeless miracle, the revelation that Allah revealed upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and promised himself to preserve and by these individuals collectively, reciting the book, learning how to recite it properly and learning the instructions of the book. They are part of the process of

00:05:39--> 00:06:20

preserving it. So they are blessed. And as such, Allah Shah was upon them contentment, the hearts few tranquil their chest feel content, the eyes feel peaceful. This is the reality of a person who lives in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala especially when they are connected to the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. The next gift that Allah subhanahu Allah gives gives us gives us group of people who collectively learn how to recite the Quran and lend the instructions of the Quran is that Allah caused them to be engulfed in Allah subhanho wa Taala has mercy. Allah He brothers and sisters at this time how in need are we have Allah subhanho wa Taala has mercy, right especially in

00:06:20--> 00:06:56

this day and age and so much going on. We are in need of Allah subhanho wa Taala as mercy not just Allah's Mercy descending upon us, but descending upon us in abundance such that we become engulfed by His mercy and nobody knows the reality of the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala it's so vast, it constitutes that which we consider good for ourselves, and that which we haven't even thought about Subhanallah and when we are connected to the Quran, when we dedicate our lives to the Quran, when we make the Quran a companion, we open for ourselves, these unprecedented opportunities Brothers and Sisters in Islam. So that's the second verse a third gift. Allah subhanho wa Taala has angels

00:06:56--> 00:07:30

dedicated towards roaming the globe searching for Majelis vicar, the circles of knowledge in which people learn how to recite the Quran and learn about the Quran and teach the Quran and these angels are known as say your wholeness we find it other narrations and when they find these circles of knowledge, immediately they call out to the other angels and say Come come for we have found what ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada commanded us to go and search for. And then they descend upon this gathering and encircle the people of this gathering La Ilaha illa Allah, what do you think Brothers and Sisters in Islam, about the people in a gathering that are

00:07:32--> 00:08:13

encircled by the angels the Milotic of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then the fourth gift Subhan Allah what a great gift. A true moments Pamela with Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions us to His angels, that is Allah, again, what would we pay Brothers and Sisters in Islam to have this honor, Allah mentions us to his angels. And when Allah mentions us to His angels, Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we become famous with the angels of Allah. We're not talking about a Facebook page with a million followers from the human race. We're talking about Brothers and Sisters in Islam, you having a following of angels? Right? Right, you are the celebrity and your fans are the

00:08:13--> 00:08:52

angels of Allah subhanho wa taala. This is the reality Brothers and Sisters in Islam, of a have a person and a group of people connected to the book of Allah subhanho wa taala, the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala just does so much for us. And we in the month of of Al Quran, and no doubt, again, a month of transformation, and definitely transformation with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala making it a true companion, that we we recite it and we learn about its meanings, and then we implement its meanings and then we teach other people what we know of its meanings. And then also we ponder over the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala constantly checking how close we are to its

00:08:52--> 00:09:29

instructions, how far we are away from its instructions, understanding why we are so far away from its instructions and understanding what we can do to close that gap between us and the ideals that the Quran instructs us towards. That's the demo right? So we have this relationship of the double as well, and also Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Last but not least, we also use the Quran as a means of cure as a Shiva. So I leave you with these words. Indeed, as the pious before as you say, this book of Allah subhanho wa Taala it raises nations in rank and debasis. Nations as well. Those who are close to it are raised and those who are far from it at the base level subhanho wa Taala makers

00:09:30--> 00:09:46

from the raised ones may Allah raised us in this life by making us from the family of Al Quran in this life and raise us in the hereafter by making us also from the family of our Quran in the hereafter. I love you all for the sake of Allah. Until next time, salam ala Alikum warahmatu albaraka
