Allah tells us of a complaint of His messenger (PBUH) in Surah alFurqan…
Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters in Islam welcome to episode number 26 moments with the Quran today's moment takes us to sudo to Furukawa and Allah subhanho wa Taala in total for Khan teaches us of a complaint of his Rasul of His Messenger. Listen carefully brothers and sisters in Islam Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, Paula rasuluh Yara be in comida hado.
Jumeirah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the rasuluh said, Oh my Lord, indeed my people have taken the score and as something abandoned the ilaha illa Allah, this Quran through which nations are raised and if they fall from it, they are debased
the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying my people have taken this Quran as something abandoned. And no doubt first and foremost, this references the courage and the abandonment of the Quran for the servants of their desires and the ways of the forefathers and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in order to facilitate so Pamela, how do you say what are the Latina cover letters merrily as well as Oh v hollyburn. When the Quran is being recited, they would say make sure you don't listen to it. In fact, raise your voices over it so that you can overcome it, you can overpower it, how lower quality level look at this misguidance and this disobedience
Allahumma Stan, but we know they could never ever beat it and overcome it. Right. And we know from the the master of poets at the time of the Croatian era, right in in his conversation with Abu Jamal when Abu Jamal became concerned about him because he's to go and listen to the Quran, Allah will lead us to go and listen to the Quran. So Buddha said, Tim, you people are gathering money for you, they fear that you're going to convert, and you're going to go to the other side. Why would Why would they get the money from me? Or Well, it was rich, why would they get the money formula and well, it was rich, and he was a master poet. He was senior and well respected. So a Buddha says you
have to say something that convinces us you go and listen to this Quran? What are you gonna say about it? And well, it's kind of like describe the Quran in an amazing way. He says this Koran is sweet It's, it's amazing. It's, it's, it's the top of it is fruitful and the bottom of it has bounties that gush forth and it will always rise and never be risen over the either a llama, no matter what they did, they could never overcome it. The Quran will always overcome.
Brothers and sisters in Islam, that was at the time of the crush, and we have this ayah in the Quran, the complaint of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam we have to ask ourselves the question, do we behave in a way that constitutes the abandonment of the Quran. And if we look in the rich books that we have
books of Islamic law, write books with regards to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the compilations of the sooner we find different ways through which the abandonment of the Quran can take place from them, number one, not reciting it and revising it. Number two, not pondering over its meanings and to ponder over its meanings you have to understand it, which means you got to learn what the verse means then ponder over it, and pondering over it at the basic level. Because pondering is for everyone
implies us after reading an idea and understanding it asking ourselves a simple question. This ayah has taught me some knowledge, and has taught me some form of action. How close Am I to the implementation of this idea in my life? And how far am I from it? And why is there a gap between me and the ideal that I should have with regards to this i? And what can I do to plug this gap? So Pamela, this is basic level pondering brothers and sisters in Islam and that is why Yes, the FSI is for the scholars to do but the Buddha and pondering is for everyone. Some people say no, we can ponder over the Quran. Why? Because we don't understand the Quran to go and understand the first
ethical cause the people have knowledge hasn't Allah blessed us with books have now translated into the English language? And if there's parts of it, that you can understand you have a scholar nearby, we rely heavily on the internet that has brought the fire near you can you can interact with people from afar Panama and get answers to the questions that you have. Right? So there's no excuse to be ignorant and now that you have the knowledge then you engage the Quran in the concept in the process of the double. And then the third way through which the Quran is abandoned, is through not practicing over what it tells you to do. And we can see the relationship between the second form of
abandonment and the third because you don't ponder then you're going to abandon the Quran by not pondering and a result of it is abandoning the Quran by not implementing.
Moving forward brothers and sisters in Islam we in the month of Parana hamdulillah.
What are we going to do to ensure that we have a better relationship with the Quran in terms of
have our daily sitting with it. What are we going to do to better our relationship with the Quran in terms of how much we understand of it? And then how much we ponder over it, and then how much we implement it.
Right? These are the moments to correct our relationship with the Quran. The relationship of the Quran is not a hit and run relationship brothers and sisters in Islam Wait, you know, at a certain time, that's when we hit and then after at different times we run no doubt during the seasons of worship, our pious predecessors used to be even more connected to the Quran. We know Robbie mentions that remember chef used to complete the Quran twice in one day. Right? And even a Buddha would he mentioned that Buddha used to complete it once in a day and someone has been reported about Abu hanifa. in Baghdad. Right? In the book that lists the history of Baghdad similar report goes is
mentioned about Abu hanifa completing the Quran daily in seasons of worship, like like Ramadan. Right, but generally, the scholars say and this is by looking at the reports of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam collectively that we shouldn't compete the Quran in less than three days. Why? Because this will entail a rush but there's no problem in seasons of worship to do it like the month of Ramadan, for example, like the first 10 days of the hedger, right. So it shouldn't be, you know, then before three days, but this is not even a discussion that needs to happen now, because the question is, you know, what are the most number of days before which we should complete the
Quran? That is the discussion because Subhanallah I know people brothers and sisters in Islam, they go the entire year and they don't complete the Quran until Ramadan comes. And this is a problem. Right. And as I was calling to say, by looking at the different durations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that ideally should be completed once every 30 days. And as we see in the second century of Islam, in Iraq, the categorize the splitting of the Quran into 30 parts to facilitate completing the Quran in 30 days, okay, but if you can't, then 40 days, but we shouldn't make it go months and months and months, brothers and sisters in Islam and we don't complete the Quran. Because
upon Allah, we might just fall under the complaint of the Rasul sallallahu alayhi wasallam to his Lord, right, that we have abandoned the Quran May Allah protect us And forgive us. So moving forward, especially from now, sit down and really draft for yourself a positive, proactive way forward with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala that no day passes except that you've had you're sitting with the misshapen open the must have and read from it. Right, except those who are excused, of course, but no day passes, except this is a matter from the matters of your life like you have breakfast like you wear your clothes, it's a matter from the matters of your life, you wake up you
you never leave the house except that you dressed appropriately. Make it a matter from the matters of your life that you don't sleep except that you've had your daily sitting with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and love you for the sake of Allah. May Allah make us from the family of Al Quran whilst we are alive and raised us with the family of Al Quran in the hereafter. I mean, you're a Brahmin. Until next time, salam o aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
