We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we seek his assistance and we seek His guidance, and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evil of our souls, and the evil consequences of our deeds. Whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon then men can misguide him, and also have Allah subhanho wa Taala decrease misguidance upon then men

00:00:56--> 00:01:38

I mean, I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger. My dear mothers and fathers brothers and sisters. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Welcome to another episode in our short series titled Disgaea to neffs. In our last episode, we started discussing the principles of desica these principles that can help us bring test care into our lives into our homes, into our establishments into our communities, with delay to Allah, just to fresh in

00:01:38--> 00:02:09

our memories. The first principle we discussed was that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the purifier and we shared evidences that established this particular principle. The second principle we discussed and we spend some time on it is that do is extremely important when it comes to test gear and test gear starts with Dora and asking from the purifier, Allah subhanho wa Taala The one who purifies us.

00:02:11--> 00:02:50

And I asked you all to go back. And take a moment and ponder over your realities, especially with Dr. And I hope between that particular request in this episode, there has been some improvement remember brothers and sisters, for any knowledge to become beneficial, it has to be coupled with action in the area we always talk about Alabama, Alabama, NASA, will Urmila Sonic, and Ullman NASA or beneficial knowledge. That's the definition of or translation of Ll and nav. Element nav here refers to knowledge which is coupled with action, who just have knowledge in the bank, it's stored

00:02:52--> 00:03:30

and processed, it doesn't benefit us in any way, then there's really no benefit in this knowledge. Allahumma except in the instance instance of us becoming holders of that knowledge and having to rely on anyone who holds knowledge becomes a protector of it. So yes, we become protectors of that knowledge. But in reality, knowledge is there to protect us. And the only way knowledge can protect us is if we put it into practice. So those were two principles that we discussed what he liked him which brings us to Principle number three. Principle number three in teskey, my dear brothers and sisters teaches us that the book of teskey and I'm sure we always ask this question which book

00:03:30--> 00:03:52

should I buy? Which book should I read, which is the best book on test gear? This is the third principle. The Book of teskey My dear brothers and sisters, is the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Quran the Quran is keytab with Ischia. It is the book of purification. It is the book of guidance. It is the book of teskey

00:03:53--> 00:04:37

and Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us this particular point in many apart in his book and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us this in the Sunnah who just look at the beginning of the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala when Allah subhanho wa Taala open Surah Baqarah Allah subhanho wa Taala says with the limited time that this book is a, a means of guidance for the believers, this book is a means of guidance for that belief. So the book of test is the Quran. The best book you can read to purify yourself is the Quran. The book that will affect you in the fastest way is the Quran and the reason why I'm saying this is based on the questions that I received from

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

you all regarding to this KSM say what's the quickest way to get this gear Some say what's the best book to read to get this gear? My answer to that is the book of Allah Subhana What? Why do I say this? Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in Surah, two cough in sort of tough eye number 45 Allah subhanho wa Taala says whether Kill Bill Cora was a Kill Bill four and a half way

00:05:00--> 00:05:23

But remind by the Quran whoever fears my threat whoever fears my warning meaning the warning of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book padman Allah, Allah meaning is better for him Rasul Allah min. And fusi him yet Lu la him at he will use a key him while you are alemu molokhia when

00:05:24--> 00:06:04

we're in Cairo, min hobble Luffy Donnelly mubin Allah subhanho wa Taala say certainly did Allah shower a great favor upon the believers when he sent to them from among them? A messenger, right? Meaning Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what did this messenger do? Allah subhanho wa Taala says, reciting to them his verses, reciting to them his verses, meaning reciting to them, the Quran and purifying them. So this is the evidence here that the Orion is the book of Ischia for Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that purification Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

came with purification. How by reciting I add from the book of Allah subhanahu Wata Allah. So Allah says, reciting to them his ayat, and purifying them, and teaching them the book and wisdom. And Allah says, although they had been before this in manifest error, right, so before the if that came to purify, were revealed, they were in manifest error and they came out of error and into guidance because of the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the Quran is the book of Ezekiel. And again, as I said, there are many ayat in the Quran which teaches this and many statements from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that establish this now brothers and sisters. Is it enough for us just to

00:06:51--> 00:07:00

read the Quran for it to purify us that as long as we reading it, by default we will become purified? The answer to that question is no.

00:07:01--> 00:07:38

Whilst reading the Quran is good. reciting it is good even when we don't understand it, there's benefit there's great benefit Allah has promised us or Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us that Allah has in store for the one who recites his book has center for every letter and has center is equal to 10 rewards so when you say it flat I mean that is 30 rewards so yes, there is great benefit in reciting the Quran. But we discussing teskey here and that's why I'm bringing this question about Is it enough just to recite somebody has the ability to recite one Jews everyday and in fact they have been doing it their whole life?

00:07:39--> 00:08:15

And perhaps you have thought about this because I definitely you know, have been asked this question that how is it that we have people who are so good with the Quran, but they need deep in the river? For example, how is it that we have people who read the Quran everyday but Subhan Allah the speech is a bit vulgar. How is it that we have people who read the Quran everyday but the character is not the character of a person who Allah has blessed to have this daily attachment and relationship with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala so how is this possible? My answer my dear brothers and sisters, and mothers and fathers is that this has no problem or this is no issue with the Quran. No one

00:08:15--> 00:08:41

should feel that the Quran is lacking in its abilities. Absolutely not. The reason why certain discrepancies do exist is because of a problem in the application of the person and the relationship with the Quran. The Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Quran My dear brothers and sisters, was not revealed just to be read and was not revealed just to be memorized and was not revealed just to be listened to Alcoa aluminum silicate, your

00:08:43--> 00:08:54

own Zilla Li k you stand out in a pocket. Well my own Zilla leka Pat bell on Zilla Leah double it Willie at avec Cara.

00:08:55--> 00:09:38

Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in his book kita boon Enza Allahu la casa mobile rakuen Leah de baru at whatever Cara Alba this Quran wasn't revealed just to be read No, or just revealed just to be memorized or just revealed just to be listened to this is all good, don't get me wrong. But it was revealed the purpose behind this revelation was so that we could practice today and ponder over its lessons and ponder over its science and ponder over its directives and ponder over its mandates. And as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book while he attended carolan Al Bab, and so that those of understanding those who are intelligent truly

00:09:40--> 00:09:40

will remember

00:09:42--> 00:10:00

so Fortescue to come into our life it's not enough just to read or listen or memorize we must have some form of understanding of what we reading and not just to understand but ponder over it. You know, my chef eloquently said once, heavy the hula. He said, sadly, we're a nation that don't read and when we read, we don't

00:10:00--> 00:10:29

Understand, and when we understand we don't ponder. And I thought about the Subhana Allah and I said, You know what, on many levels this exists with many people. And obviously everything we hear we benchmark ourselves against it or we should to first and foremost understand our situation. So this is what the Quran what's the Quran, we must read it and when we read it, we must understand it and when we understand it, we must ponder over it. And this is taught to us in the Quran, and taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the Quran is the book of Ezekiel, but for who, for the one who

00:10:30--> 00:10:53

surpasses the sphere of just reading and enters the paradigm around of understanding and pondering, you will see that the Quran will help you to become pure the Quran really talks to us brothers and sisters, depending on our circumstances. And this is why the Quran is amazing. And to be honest, when you know, desica is taught in a long course.

00:10:54--> 00:11:32

There is an entire chapter in terms of how to achieve Tezuka dedicated to the concept of an entire chapter. Right, the double, in particular Al Quran pondering over the message of the Quran because the Quran talks to us, depending on our circumstance, you can never get bored reading the Quran. You could read an idea today in a circumstance and read the same idea tomorrow in a different circumstance and it will talk to you based on you in that circumstance By Allah, I have witnessed this. And by Allah, many have witnessed it who have tried that's why it's not like reading a book that you've read, and you know the contents of it and I won't read it again, even a good book, we

00:11:32--> 00:11:45

don't really say it was so good, I read it again. And perhaps I read it for the third time. But that's it with the Quran by Allah you will spend your whole life reading it, and the day Allah takes you to him and your ability to read stops.

00:11:47--> 00:12:14

It would be correct for you to say that you haven't achieved all from the Quran. Because the Quran still has more to offer. It's from Allah subhanho wa Taala and it is the book of destiny. So remember this particular point, my dear brothers and sisters, this all important point, detailing the bar and pondering over what you read and not just reading. So this makes up the third principle of test gear.

00:12:15--> 00:12:49

The Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the book of test gear. It's the best book of test gear is the book that can allow you to ascertain test key in the fastest way. And it does that if we surpassed the sphere of just reading it or listening to it or memorizing it, and enter that round of the bore of pondering over the ayat in the book. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding, forgive us for lacking diligence with his book, may Allah subhanahu wa taala inspire us to be even better with the book of this year.

00:12:50--> 00:12:56

I love you all for the sake of Allah. And I'll see you shortly after the break. Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
