Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa

00:00:19--> 00:01:08

ala Tina. Mohammed is the lead he will come back to Santa Monica de la he got a tattoo. All praises are due to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala who continuously showers upon us blessings after blessings after blessings mercy after mercy after mercy La ilaha illAllah at peace and salutations be upon Mohammed gam de la sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my dear brothers, my dear sisters, my dear mothers and fathers. In our last video, we discussed the topic of tougher code, and difficulty with reflection. For the purposes of this video, I want to share with you all a topic known as the devil. And the devil refers to deliberation and contemplation. And more specifically

00:01:08--> 00:01:33

over the verses found in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala his verses are divine. And if we contemplate and deliberate over the ayat and verses in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, we will come to learn that there are many, many more meanings, and many, many more lessons that exist within the verse La ilaha illa Allah. So yes, you might

00:01:34--> 00:02:17

take an apparent meaning for those who understand the Arabic language or for those who do not. You will take an authentic translation of the Quran and revise the translation of a particular verse and you would have appreciated the apparent meaning of the verse. However, if you become specialists in contemplating and deliberating and being attached to the Quran in this way, I promise you, you will find magnanimous lessons, lessons that can only be learned once we ponder and deliberate, know and understand or servant of Allah and oh, children of Adam, that I know my own Zilla Lika ustomer la he will work for Iron Mountain Zilla Lika you

00:02:19--> 00:02:52

work for an Uzi Li k u CRO wofox but on Zilla Leah double it. When you come back. This book of servants of Allah was not revealed so that we could just recite it was not revealed so that we could just memorize it was not revealed so that we could just listen to it. Right? The main purpose behind his revelation was so that we could ponder and deliberate over the verses of this book, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book kita boo,

00:02:54--> 00:03:03

boo, la caja aku Leah the bamboo is it when he uttered that?

00:03:06--> 00:03:26

Allah subhanho wa Taala says a blessing book we have revealed to you Oh Mohammed, so that they may ponder over its verses, listen to the word ponder, deliberate contemplate over it versus when he avocado, olive oil back, and so that those of understanding may remember that.

00:03:27--> 00:04:12

So it's very important, especially during this month, the month of alcohol and that we establish this association with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So yes, we have a recitation that is specific to completing the exam of the Quran. And we have a recitation that might include memorizing the Quran, and we have a recitation that includes us reading the English verses, for example for those who do not understand the Arabic language, but we should have a another association that includes us taking a verse from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Understanding its meaning, asking our local scholar to expound on that meaning, and when we have a comprehensive understanding

00:04:12--> 00:04:55

of this verse, Then we spend the day two days a week contemplating over it, asking why, and this is the reality of contemplation. Why did Allah subhanho wa Taala say this here? Why did Allah subhanho wa Taala say, or use a particular word here and Not another word? For example? keep on asking why. And when you ask why, with the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala with sincerity solely to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala to have this true association with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will open your heart towards understanding magnanimous lessons that exist within the vessels. This is amazing or seventh of a line. I promise you that once you get

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

started, you will never stop and the score and will never become something that is

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

Just a norm, something that we recite because it's something that we've been told to do every day, establish this association with the Quran or servants of Allah.

00:05:09--> 00:05:52

Allah mentions ways that the Quran can be abandoned. And he says that from the ways of abandoning the score and is to not or to stop contemplating and deliberating over the verses in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala let us not be like those before us. We also kind of attire that says that the only association with the book was in their mid was only to recite it, only to recite it La ilaha illa Allah, but they never ever gave me due diligence and the respect that it deserves. So in this multiple Quran are servants of Allah ensure that you establish his association with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala? Don't be afraid because the devil is not Tafseer Yes, the Prophet

00:05:52--> 00:06:33

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us against explaining the Koran without knowledge. That is the fear that the poor and reflection and contemplation cannot take place. Unless we have understood the Tafseer and explanation of the verse, so I'm not asking you all to performative seal. No, I'm asking you to contemplate and ponder after you've understood the verse and recall my earlier statement where I said that once you understand the meaning, visit your local scholar and ask him to expound for you relate to the Tafseer and once you have a comprehensive understanding of this verse, contemplate, and I promise you, you will be amazed. I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa

00:06:33--> 00:07:06

Taala I end this video with our tagline and that tagline is a Muslim is an entity of activity and proactiveness what are you doing Oh servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam, for Islam and the Muslims for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best until we meet again Subhana Allah He will become the supercritical lahoma will become deca to Allah, Allah, Allah and Mr. Furukawa to La Casa Rama alikum warahmatu Allahi wa barakato
