Channel: Sajid Ahmed Umar
This was a talk presented by Sheikh Sajid Umar at Muntadah al-Islaami in London – UK, 2013 and is based upon a verse in the Quran in Surah Al-Furqaan.
“The Messenger said, ‘O my Lord, my people have taken this Quran as something mahjoor (abandoned, or to be avoided).”
And thus Sheikh Sajid explains the importance of protecting ourselves from ever falling into this category by discussing the status and honour that we should afford the Book of Allah in our lives.
We are encouraged to be people that ponder and deliberate and reflect over the ayaat in the Quran and to be consistent with it, and we emulate our Messenger (saw) such that our character becomes Al-Quran.

All praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Allah subhanahu wa to Allah. We see colossal Hemingway tireless assistance and we seek His guidance to Canada.
And we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evils of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds,
who serve Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon that man can misguide him, and will serve Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees misguidance upon the man can guide him and peace and salutations be upon the final messenger Muhammad Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam Salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
first and foremost, all praises belongs to Allah subhana wa to Allah. For inspiring this get together, I get together in a house, from the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala and especially to discuss a topic pertaining to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Sahih Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said it's a hadith we hear many a time and this gathering is deserving of this head is being repeated. He said Mr. McComb when he beat him in beauty lakita and its new Nikita Bala he rasuna who FEMA been at home. Inland as an attorney. He was Sakina Walker she at home urashima will have Herman Miller with a common law of human endeavor. He says sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam that there is no group of people that gather together in a house from the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Yet Luna Kitab Allah they recite the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Yet Adele rasuna houfy mabhida home and they study
between themselves lessons from this book.
Except that Allah subhanho wa Taala causes contentment to descend upon that gathering
and causes this gathering to be engulfed in Allah subhanho wa Taala his message
instructs the angels to surround this particular gathering.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned this gathering to those that are with the loss of headquarters.
Allah, what an amazing blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala upon those that practice these types of gatherings May Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned us to those that are with him. I mean,
from the outset, I'm grateful to visit elementa and Islam. It's my first visit here. Although I have been in touch with those that work here for a while. And it is my first program in London. I was touring the Southwest over the past few days. And I must say this because it's a theme now that after my first talk, we've started a week ago I lost my voice of Allah. But Allah subhanho wa Taala made it easy for me to crawl through the remainder of the talk, bringing my voice back at the time of the talks. Barely but ultimately it was enough for me to
participate with the audience realize
and I'm still experiencing recovery, but inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant QB Milla hit an amine. Indeed the Quran is a Shiva and the cure. So when one reads it and teaches it then they stand a chance of medicating themselves that through medication.
I also want to thank my brothers and sisters in attendance here today for coming here with your ears of course and being attentive and for your listenership
and ask him awesome Hannah who attended to make us a gathering, that is blessing, a gathering that he is a good word and follows it a gathering that is forgiven upon its departure and a gathering that comes together for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala many, many more times in this dunya as well as in the hereafter. I mean, my dear brothers and sisters,
Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed Omar Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with countless blessings. And you've heard me say this many attacks.
And from the greatest of these blessings is the miraculous
this miracle that was given to Mohammed song
Allahu alayhi wa sallam, this preserved final Testament, the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, in which Allah subhanho wa Taala said, in the Zelda vichara, or in Allah who have shown that, indeed we have revealed this revelation, and we will take charge of its protection and take care of its protection. And we witness this promise in the age that we are experiencing, and the generations before us witness this promise as well. And our children and the generations to come after us will also witness this promise. And this promise is not as many restricted to, pertaining to the words of the Quran per se, the recited words. Rather, its scope of protection is much vaster than we normally
think, for this protection
is comprehensive, and includes matters pertaining to the recitation of the Quran
Subhana Allah. Today, we have schools teaching the Terra
this para art that have been established from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It's preserved, it's protected. And the greatest way to protect something is to teach it.
This is the difference between wealth and knowledge, as I was called to say, is it to protect wealth, you have to lock it in a box. But to protect knowledge, you have to spread it, you have to release it, not keep it and hoard it. Protection of knowledge happens by teaching it.
promise of protection, my dear brothers and sisters, is comprehensive as well of the Quranic meanings, and everything related to those meanings insofar as, for example, the reasons of revelations are concerned this is knowledge, which we have with us today. With a chain of narrators leading back to the best of generations. We have knowledge of the reasons behind the revelation of Satan
in the Quran,
and Allah subhanho wa Taala protects this revelation as well, by setting aside a punishment for those who lack diligence with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's the topic today the Quran, the abandoned companion for Yes, it is a companion.
Allah subhanho wa Taala. In his book, he mentioned to us something that will happen on the day of piano, something that will happen on the day of PM, he mentioned to us
a complaint of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
a complaint that will take place on the day of air, where
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will say, Yeah, oh, my Lord, in the economy, indeed my people, it does have an Anima Jura, they have taken the score on something abandoned.
That's the title, the abandoned companion, because the inference from this complaint of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. wasallam is the opposite of abandonment, which is companionship.
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will cite this complaint to Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of tiama sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, if we look at this, if we zoom into it, we see that he says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Nepali indeed my people, indeed, my people.
And when he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam refers to his people then specifically is referring to the people of Makkah.
And the Quran
and generally he's referring to everyone from this oma
that left diligence with all the relationships established by the Sharia, with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Allah subhanahu wa Genesis wirkkala Rasul
Allah Rasool era, in a coma, who has an Anima Hydra
in another era in media,
and in another era in Nepal Mita, who has Khurana Matura, such as in the era of even Catherine Mackey.
Even Catherine Mackey, doesn't mention the Hamza in the word Quran. But the majority of scholars say pour ins Quran as we have come to know it but there's a
I can view that it's foreign.
And this is also discussed by the amount of
the derived word from which Quran was taken.
Is it derivative and taken from another word such as para, which means to recite and means together, because in the Quran we have ayat which are gathered. And in the Quran we have that which is recited, or is it a proper noun as is the view of environment Shafi refer to La la, where he says it's a proper noun, like we have Torah and ngl. These are not derived names, they are proper nouns in and of itself. This Quran is a proper noun Allah. This is a footnote in the form of fat and benefit to our discussion.
So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Rasul Allah subhana wa Genesis wirkkala Russell Russell said, meaning Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and prasun is different to nebby because an abbey is a prophet but there also is a prophet that was given a book and sent to a nation.
an abbey is a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Somebody that Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke to.
And as I was called to say, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent 124,000
maybes prophets. But in terms of messengers, he said, as some of the scholars say, 314 314 is another footnote, but it's beneficial. We should know these aspects of our Sharia.
We should know these aspects of our history.
Today, we know a lot of aspects of other people's history.
But that's another discussion.
If we look at the people who stood by the way number as well was 314. Who can give me another example from our history where there was 314 FIFA,
the army of Fallujah, the army of balut, there was 314 that's Allah subhanho wa Taala establishes company in Viet in Cali Latin, or whatever he is and can hear from Bismillah how many a small group of people overcame a large group of people with the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But people of substance not shallow people, people of substance, people of caliber men who a man who in and of himself was known as men, he was many men in one.
Allah Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala rozalia Rob oh my lord in indeed told me by people, meaning the Quraysh specifically, and all of us fall under the implication of this ayah if we adopt away from the ways that are considered the abandonment of the Quran
to have will have an Anima Jumeirah they've abandoned this. They have abandoned this plan. Now, how does abandonment take place? Our scholars
have discussed this such as
discussed ways in which the oma after the college can abandon the Quran.
From these ways of abandoning the Quran, they say is by not listening to it.
Not lending an ear to it. And also an attentive ear.
Right sometimes we play the Quran as a biller, just for a sense of noise around us. When
the Quran These are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala when it's played for STEMI Oh, level one c two. So Pamela, not just listen to it, but pay attention to it. This is the Quranic instruction.
This is the Quranic instruction. So from the abandonment of the Quran is not listening to you. We don't have a program in our day or our week where we pay attention to the Grand Bahama sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would ask us a habit to read the Quran to him, as is in the story of Allah.
When Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam asked him to read and he said, I should read when it was revealed to you. And he said, Sometimes I love to listen to it. sallallahu alayhi wasallam so abandoning the Quran entails not having a program in which we listen to the Quran.
And from being disrespectful to the Quran is what we said earlier where we played the Quran for noise or the Quran is being played and we speaking
over the recitation of the Quran.
This is from disrespecting the cry. This is from taking the course.
Unless something abandons you, Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. Due Diligence must be practiced. When we give the Quran its help and if we need to speak, we switch it off.
So from abandoning the Quran is not listening to it from abandoning the Quran as well. As cited by our Mr. McCullough, Allah him is not following its teachings. Now I'm not talking about the way of the Quran where they didn't believe in it. I'm talking about those who believe that this is the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The unchanged word that which Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed His Prophet sallallahu Allah He was sending via jabril Allah His Salah,
they do not follow its teachings,
they do not look after it
and stay away from it. Because in the forum, there is mention of that which is permitted and that which is not permitted.
And if we look at the best generation and they were the best generation, we see that one of the qualities they had that made them the best generation was their relevance with the Quran.
They live the Quran and this is present in countless examples.
And Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the best leader and example for them. And as some of us have
said, that he was the best in Ramadan and some of our scholars,
Allah subhanho wa Taala shower His mercy upon them. They say that he was the best because during this month, he was revising the Quran was jabril Allah He Salah.
So the net result of this extra application with the Quran made him naturally even better, it was a natural effect. La ilaha illAllah amazing how they lived the Quran
and nature of the Allahu Allah describes him sallallahu alayhi wasallam as a moving Quran, his character was the Quran. When you read the Quran in theory, you saw it in practice in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we Allah subhanho wa Taala gathers within agenda. So he was the best example. And this habit of the Allahu Allah Jemaine followed him total submission to the Quranic instruction.
from these many stories is the story of Sabbath
in the base, a sham master of the Allah
when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed in Surah alpha gerat in the second area, here you have levena letter for a sweater comfo Consulting nebby Walla Walla, who will call kachari Bobby complete and Tabitha Maluku want to lead
with Allah subhanahu attallah revealed Oh, you who believe raised not your voice above the voice of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam No, speak aloud to him in talk as you speak aloud to one another,
lest your deeds be rendered useless. Once you perceive not May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from this. Well we live our life and Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards us from our good wealth with this dunya and we get to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we find nothing will not protect us from this law, Mr.
now who have a mentor Allah Stan, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about a specific group of people, and that the good they did they receive the reward for it once they were in this world, but didn't know we gave it to them before. And when they met Allah subhanho wa Taala thinking that they had rewards to acquire because of the way they live their life in this world. They found nothing with Allah Subhana Allah, Allah says, What they found was like scattered dust.
They were rewarded for it so Han Allah, and let's say we should be fearful of servants of Allah, and all children of Adam, that we know our sins, and our lack of seeking forgiveness for the sins. And Allah Subhana who Allah blesses us with the waking of everyday financial standing material well being, we don't make a dua except Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us we should thank Allah subhanho wa Taala do not take it for granted. Because it might just be that you are being rewarded for the good that you do in this world for the some other evil that is rendering your deeds useless whilst we perceive not Willemstad.
Thus thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for the blessings that he gives you for this thanks is a means of collecting on the day of the AMA. And the one who thinks is the one who Allah subhanho wa Taala is
spires today. Yes. Don't think for a moment when you thank Allah Subhana who attended from yourself, and when you didn't thank him it was from yourself meaning you felt like not thanking and you felt like Thank you. This is tofield from Allah subhanho wa Taala
This is guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala This is a fact.
When you do good, you have been inspired because Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to increase for you, he wants to reward you.
And this doesn't mean we don't have a choice we do. When we do something good we have a choice because we don't know the father of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And the culture is based on intimate knowledge Allah subhanho wa Taala as knowledge is not confined to the past tense, and the present tense and the future tense, Allah knew the life we would live before we were even created. So
he knows what was and he knows what is and he knows what is to be and he knows how it will be. And he knows what will not be. And if those things that will not be happened to be then how they will be he also knows that this is the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So understand, that is to hear from Allah subhanho wa Taala think about it yourself how easy it is to observe the say, the asker of the morning the color of the evening or general the crowds driving to work or coming back from work, or walking back from the masjid. How easy is it to say? Allah Subhana Allah, Allahu Akbar, how easy is it? But how many of us do it
we might find ourselves humming a tune when
this shows you it doesn't cost you anything. But we still don't do it. It's two feet from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Allah blesses those whom He wills, thus we must always thank him.
He hadn't and he had one I couldn't do Lola,
Lola and had Anima Look at this.
We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala. And thank him for guiding us to this goodness, for if it wasn't for his guidance to it. It wouldn't have been part of this. You sitting here today, and me being here today. And those who have organized this event today. It's because Allah subhanho wa Taala guided its presence. Thus we should say Alhamdulillah and thank Allah subhanho wa Taala so that Allah makes us from the other gathering similar to this, where we continue learning and increasing for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the point is, we seek Allah subhanho wa Taala as protection from our deeds being rendered void once we perceive luck, and from the active ways of
protecting ourselves from this plight is by thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala. After every good act now, we shouldn't become arrogant with every act of worship rather humble.
Because the right of Islam is to learn. And the right of learning is to act and be happy and right of acting is to become more humble.
This was the way of the Sahaba Viola one image right after Islam. Look at the change. The character was more beautiful but more humble.
You can remember
how he walks today to lock this after it was opened. Walking while he has his camera. He's right next to him with his slippers underneath his armpits.
he tells him
that oh, I mean, this is another call, rather walk was wearing your slippers.
And it will have Barbara Viola Juan turns to me and says if it was other than you Who said this?
You would have been disciplined.
that Allah is not in whether I have my slippers on my feet or under my armpits. I'm paraphrasing and giving you the meaning of the discussion. But honor is Islam
as Allah with Islam, we are a nation that has been honored because of Islam and one lie This is true
of the Ummah and before Islam was worshipping idols that he would make from dates. And when he was hungry, he would eat it from your mouth. And this was the status and practice before Islam but look at them after Islam, that today we say they are the giants that walked this earth and the Giants upon
whose shoulders we try to walk, try to walk we can't even say we are walking on the shoulders. We tried to walk on the shoulders to call Islam expanded at the table.
Allah, Allah could
we seek Allah subhana wa attalus protection from arrogance.
Another point comes to mind and I'll share it with you
quickly before we move on, and that is or that proves this point of becoming more humbler when we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And being more thankful of Allah subhanho wa Taala when he guides us to goodness
is in the hadith of Sharia law and
that she asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that if I wouldn't necessarily let al Qaeda
What should I do? And Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches or to say Allahumma indicar, who would have would have
now pondered over this because we are people of substance we are commanded to ponder over the Quran.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, of Allah,
in the field, Allah, Allah, Allah,
Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses our intellect. And the sutra is a type of Revelation. It's not the Quran, but it's a type of Revelation. Nothing that Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, was from himself.
So we should ponder over the sin of Mohammed Salah while he was in his telling nature of the Allahu Allah. After she fasts the day,
during the month of Ramadan, and spends the night in worship.
he advises her to do what to seek forgiveness that ponder over this observance of Allah and our children of Adam ponder over this. There is not a point where we say call us we were worshipping throughout the day, and worshiping throughout the night, and ascertain for ourselves the type of arrogance, a type of pride that is disliked by Islam. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam matches us to become even more humble, lower yourself even more. seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. We don't know if this event is accepted.
And we know that we had weakness in our event. We know what we did, once we fasted and we know how weak we were during the worship. The saleor of the other one is reported to have said in the LA facility facilitate that Allah Subhana Allah has heated do things in two things. The first thing is he has hidden your knowledge of his happiness after you worship Him, you don't know.
We don't know.
He has hidden that from us whether he's pleased with us, whether he's accepted it from us, whether it's a batter that has been rejected now Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from us and forgive me. And the other thing he has hidden is the knowledge of his earlier in in amongst.
So Pamela, look at this statement of earlier.
It's amazing because when we put it over the statement, we acquire acknowledgment, to better ourselves with regards to Allah and to better ourselves with regards to the event of Allah subhanho wa Taala. How with Allah subhanho wa Taala we lack knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala being happy with our wish.
So we strive harder, and we seek forgiveness and we are more thankful. So this raises our
status in terms of our connection and relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then with the better for Allah, you don't know who's a Wally from his earlier. Thus we strive to be good to the best of Allah. We don't backbite them, we protect their honor, we strive to serve them during the difficulties and you never know that one day you might do good to someone who is a Wally from the idea of Allah and they will make dua for you. And that will be the opening of your duty and
you'll never know when we put it over this we understand the importance of sn with Allah subhanho wa Taala and with the worshipers of Allah subhanho wa Taala
we have also kind of with Allah grant us the understanding from the examples are servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam.
With regards to the Sahaba of the Allahu Akbar
and the relevance of the Quran, and they live in the Quran is
we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala with regards to alcohol, he made it her arm in stages there was
there was tender.
And every time Allah subhana wa Jalla revealed
Mr. Ravi Allahu Allah subhanho wa Taala for Allah subhanho wa Taala to reveal clear instruction with regards to a call. There was something in him with regards to the act.
And when the next stage came, he made the door again. And when the next stage came making our call forbidden in clear text. Immediately he said in tahina in Dana, we have stopped immediate submission to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is living the Quran. And this is Islam, for Islam means is this lab to submit to the will of Allah
Lots of Hanover data in the moment that you are living in. That's a moment you ask yourself, Is this beloved to Allah? subhanho wa Taala What does the Quran say about this? If it's Beloved, I will practice it and if it's not, I will refrain from it submission to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from the true submitters to you as well. I mean,
we have as a third example,
the example of
rhodiola one, when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed
that you will not acquire piety until you spend not any spending, but from that which you love.
From that which you love, that's what you get for the sake of Allah give the best to Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is a lesson for us, especially for those who supposedly volunteer for Islamic organizations.
I don't like to use the word volunteer, I like to use the word invest the investors. Because whatever you do for Allah subhanho wa Taala remains and is multiplied. So there's no sacrifice, you're not losing anything. You invest in something it's gained for you. You gave $1 to Allah, He multiplied it 10 700 or as Allah subhanho wa Taala wished you gave me one minute of your time, he multiplied it for you, you made your agenda bigger. So there is no sacrifice. Sacrifice has the connotation of something being given up.
It's an investment. It's a lesson to those who invest that when you work with an Islamic organization
and give time for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and give well for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala be more diligent than the time you spend at your day job.
Be more diligent. It shouldn't be that because you quote unquote, volunteering, that you miss your deadline.
There's a deadline tomorrow you'll die disinherited after two days.
They'll understand Yes, they'll understand. But have you understood? That's the question.
Lengthen and we'll be
until you spend from that which is beloved to Abu Dhabi, Allahu Allah, and he had
a garden, but you as is found in the sun, and it was beloved to him. And it faced was
and when he had this idea, he went to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has said.
This guide is for
submission, brothers and sisters.
Taking the Quran as a true companion,
not just at face value. So these are examples where Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to be with these people in general
and inspire us to walk the path they walk whilst we live our lives in this world. I mean, as the poet said, Allah if rigidly variously him, that those are fathers, so bring me those like them. Where are they? We are the men of our ummah. It starts with living the Quran.
So my dear brothers and sisters, we see the companions and the attachment to the Quran. And from abandoning the Quran is not looking after the commands today. Subhana Allah how many read the Quran and the read the ayah in the Quran and
Allah Camilla? How many times do we read Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed us to spend from the from the from the help that we have acquired and to spend in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala How many times have we read this? But in the same breath, we read it whilst our businesses are based upon interest, a lot of us that oh, we have businesses that sell alcohol. Allah Stan,
this is from abandoning the Quran. That we don't look after the borders that Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed in this Quran
aka masala establish the salah, but Salah is not established.
Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. There's an other which
does not seem to be established as something said by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
but the meaning of it no doubt is correct. As mentioned by Mr. Ali Ali, and obviously he quoted from others.
It is said
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said but as I said it's not established, it's not established, but this meeting is correct.
Allahu Allah and others have said the meeting is correct.
Well Quran Allah, Allah Allah Allah, how many a person recites the Quran the Quran is kissing him.
You reciting the Quran and the Quran is kissing you. Why? Because you read the word Allah subhana wa jal as revealed, you read the words of Allah.
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Mulan, Willem yaku and I had you read it by night and contradicting it by the way.
So let's revise ourselves of service of online or children of Adam. Let's revise ourselves in this context of abandonment.
We Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us we shouldn't lose hope. This is not a point of making us become sad.
Rather, it's a means of highlighting the obvious which we have forgotten sometimes there's so much noise around us that we fail to hear ourselves, we fail to see that what we're actually doing is wrong.
Right. So it's just a means of highlighting an issue.
But the believer is the one that makes mens immediately returned to Allah subhanho wa Taala from Maya to Buddha will carry as is in the last quarter of the fourth juice. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that immediately they seek forgiveness for their mistakes.
For those Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives, does never lose hope. As long as we breathe in, we always have a chance to turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and seek forgiveness for our mistakes. And seeking forgiveness starts with a man so don't become sad.
Rather become a person of action, who's going to take amends now
with the vision of being a companion to the Quran, and with the vision of making the karate companion in his or her life by Allah subhanho wa Taala grants the understanding
from the ways brothers and sisters that we abandon the Quran is by not taking heed when reciting the Quran. We don't recite it properly, taking care of the Maharaja and taking care of the dream. And some of the scholars like environment jazayeri Rahmatullah la they considered reciting the Quran with Tajweed. worship.
Worship compulsory and you sinful if you don't, we've all memorized
the Wi Fi the hackable azimo malum ujo we deal
with memorize the the poetry of emergency. Write that to recite the Quran with Tajweed is compulsory, and whoever doesn't is sinful. We recite the Quran we are ascertaining and acquiring since we must pattern with Allah protect us. Thus we must make this doesn't mean we should leave reciting the Quran. We should recite the Quran on whatever level we've reached that we should have an act of means accompanying us that helps us improve the recitation of the Quran, getting involved in the Quran.
The Quran circles that are specialized towards teaching us to correct recitation, listening to the good Pura to acquire from them the correct recitation. This is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah will build your agenda by it and make your skills heavy on the day of the AMA through it.
We have a subscriber who attalla because beautiful disciples of the Quran, and
from the ways brothers and sisters that we abandon the Quran is through not respecting it
through not respecting it.
Now, this is a touchy topic, because we have two extremes.
With regards to this concept of matter. We have the one extreme that is so focused on staying away from big, this is good that they end up
alone allowing matters that are clearly disrespect of the court.
And then we have those who take respecting the Quran to a level that they include in their practice that which has been either established as a practice from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or they practice it in such a way as if it says
these are two extremes. We have to be in the middle of
avoiding which is important. But this respecting the Quran is also an evil thing. This respecting the Quran is even an evil thing. revering the Quran is from the Sunnah Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, these are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. These are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It should never ever be belittled.
And never forget that from the outset acts which are not considered worship are permissible.
The supply the well known that has been established by the folks that are never pursued, that that which is not worshipped from the outset is permissible. revering the Quran.
In a practical matter, not considering it to be from the sooner by means of worship is permissible, is permissible we need to take care of this principle. But we also have to take care of the principle of looking after the ways of the Sahaba of the Allahu Germain and how they respected the Quran. Because we know the Quran came in book form, after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one book, it doesn't mean it wasn't written down at the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, but we're talking it as something compiled as a must have, as we know it today. So we need to look at how they practiced, or what the practices were with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
We find in the Sunnah
I'm trying to remember where I saw the narration. But it's one of the books of the sooner a Buddha would say,
Man, this hadith is considered acceptable. Once
the Torah was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he was set on a cushion. And when it was brought, he got off the cushion, placed it down and put the Torah on top of it.
But today, how do we scold people who might place the Quran on the cushion, for example,
and prefer not to place the Quran on the floor? For example,
we should take the middle path of servants of Allah, the Quran is a book that deserves to be revered. Now, the scholars yes have different with regards to putting the Quran on the floor. And is it permitted? And is it not permitted with a statement from even our best, saying it's permissible, whether it's permitted or not. And this discussion that happens at the level of the record, this is something else, but no doubt that all of them agree
that giving it extra respect is better.
Sometimes the discussion of permissible and not permissible is not restricted to halide and Hara.
It may be permitted according to some scholars to place it on the floor, but the same scholars will tell you but it's better not to. And this is a fact some of our mission was to preserve them. They have said that even if you listen to the Quran in your car, if it's possible for you to adjust the sound system to push out the sound through the back speakers which are higher do that, instead of the lower speakers where your feet are so popular.
Today, we say this in some circles will say but this guy is being extreme.
He's being extreme. They're not saying it's Haram, but Subhanallah
This is what I've heard them say. And I say Alhamdulillah that this is the middle way. The Quran deserves diligence. The Quran deserves diligence. Sometimes we find ourselves sitting with our feet pointed to the Quran.
And Subhana Allah, some people who do this in their culture, if somebody sat with their feet pointed to them, they will take offense, they will take offense. Some people turn the pages of the Quran as they turn the pages of normal books to put their finger on the turn and turn the page.
Now we're not discussing permissible impermissible. Let's move to a level above that. Let's move to the level of responsibility. If I put my finger on my tongue, and then put it on your cheek, would you like that?
How would you feel?
You came to see me and once you talk to me I stick my finger in my mouth and I I wipe it on your cheek How would you feel?
We take offense. Let's understand this are servants of Allah. Understand that these are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala from abandoning the Quran is lacking this concept of respecting the Quran and remember I said we don't want to enter the realm of VEDA. But in the same breath, we don't want to enter the realm of actually disrespecting and thinking that this is from the Sharia. where Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us wisdom and understanding. I mean,
brothers and sisters was revealed to be read, and it was revealed to be memorized and it was revealed to be listened to, but the essence behind his revelation was that the book
and that is to ponder over the meanings in the score and the secrets in the score and the implicit behind the explicit
taboo. Allahu la caja
ish. Well a Leah de Peru is
a blessing book we have revealed to Mohammed why so that they may ponder over it
and that those of understanding will remember.
So from abandoning the Quran is
not practicing this concept of the poor
and this is something that
Lesson number today.
And up to a few years ago it lacked even in the Arab world. And when there's an active movement from the Maasai were they getting together and starting up organizations dedicated towards the double? This concept of pondering over the Quran, the Quran or servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam is not like any book that you and I would write the words of Allah, and in this Quran, our meanings, which Allah subhanho wa Taala opens to the hearts that deserve the understanding of these meanings. Allah subhanho wa Taala because from Muslim, that we sit with the Quran, and we ponder over the Quran. The Quran is so precise in its instruction, there is no word which is extra, or redundant, or
out of place that we sit with every mention. And if we feel that something is extra, we spend more time there because it's not extra. And we unlock the reason behind this presence. And we grow ourselves and learn about Allah subhanho wa Taala more and become connected to him more, and we see value that is added to our life. So Pamela, this is why it's a book you can keep on reading and you'll never get bored. Many of us know that. I've lectured on the Tafseer of surah Yusuf and other songs, but mainly surah. Use of in London and in many cities in the UK. I promise you as a personal experience, there is never a course that I teach it except that something new comes from it.
And I take a point to tell it to the students that what I'm mentioning to you now is exclusive. It wasn't mentioned in the courses before this is something that dawned upon me now some have Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala says his use of his brothers was science for those who ask.
And as it says 1000 lessons from Surah he's
if he only wrote those 1000 lessons for us,
but it was encouragement for us to practice the dumper not rely on somebody else to practice it for us. He did his and he left us golden pieces of lessons than advice, but this is for us as well as servants of Allah and our children. Mashallah, we have this two day program that is titled to double Quran at this levy. inshallah, we're going to speak in a little bit more detail about the Quran. So I asked you to come
and ask you to get your family members to attend as well. If this place is I believe it's the places are filling up pretty fast, but still come inshallah, they will find chairs for you to sit on. Because I think it's important for us to speak in a little more detail about the depth and these plant the seed of understanding about the dynamics of the depth, and this is what I hope to do, inshallah, when we meet over the next two days, so from abandoning the Quran, is not practicing is not practicing the dumper. Understand this are servants of Allah. And this is something that definitely lacks and attention is needed and this request from your Imams and your scholars to have
sessions of the double weekly in the massages. We have many lessons pertaining to the UK, and many lessons pertaining to Heidi,
and even Tafseer on a technical level, ask our Imams and our scholars to sit down with us and ponder over the Quran with us that we take an ayah I have it might take us one week, two weeks where we just discuss one idea. And we extract and extract and extract by Allah have tried to sometimes from 111 pieces of benefits
11 benefits from one A, which are the implicit, the explicit of the is telling us one thing, but you're pondering and deliberating over the ayah brings out other meanings from this, we can understand this. And from that we can understand that Subhanallah and it just makes you more amazed and encourages you more
to go to the next day. We also have the understanding, perhaps I will share with you some of my experiences with the dumper in the next couple of days been delighted. So understand this all servants of Allah and all children of Adam that this Quran is a light, it requires us understanding it. It requires us pondering over it's a light How can it be a light for us when we don't understand it? We don't try and take the maximum we can from it. Allah subhanho wa Taala says a woman can animated for
Allah who Nora young she believes in us. But Allah Who says beloved Lisa,
this is the score Allah says kept no one who is dead, spiritually dead farheena we made him spiritually alive. How would you
through this revelation?
How can he be the same as the one who is in darkness? And no matter how hard he tries, he cannot extract himself from this darkness well.
inshallah we will discuss this in detail over the next couple of days being the light and So in a nutshell, the devil refers to split
In time with the Quran in a way that allows you to learn from the secrets of the Quran
by dear brothers and sisters from abandoning the Quran
and this is specifically cited by Allah as well as others, as well as others is not using the Quran as a cure. Pamela, this has been cited
as a category that falls under the complaint of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam on the day of the app, that we never used the Quran to cure us. Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala he describes honey in the Quran as a cure.
But he described it as a cure for mankind, all of mankind,
the believers and the disbelievers but when he discusses the Quran, and cites it as a cure, he says it's a cure for who it's a cure and mercy for the book meaning the believers for the believers. So the Quran is a cure, but it's round is not specific to the external to the external. It's a spiritual cure as well. It cures the elements of the heart, the doubts of the heart, it cures the weak Eman of the self. This is the Quran. When we feel weak when our Eman is weak, we should read with the intention of curing our email. When we feel low, we should read the Quran with the intention of curing us because the Quran Allah subhanho wa Taala has said it's a Shiva but he said
for the believers, which means it has an effect on this image. This is the double by the way. Without us trying we've extracted a benefit. Right? Because Allah didn't make it specific to the believers. He cited it as a cure for the people. But with the Quran, it was specific to the believers. And what's the difference between the believer and the disbeliever he man
thus, it's a cure for weak a man.
As a cure for a doubtful heart. We have lots of data protect our hearts from the sicknesses of the heart. I mean, the heart spiritually become sick.
Just as it physically becomes sick. And I've discussed this in a talk titled The heart it's online. For reference for those who want to learn more about the sicknesses of the heart and it's curious May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from us, so the heart becomes sick and from curing the heart is this is this Quran and not utilizing it as a cure is from abandoning the Quran is from abandoning the Quran. We know even in Rukia we use the Quran, the Quran is recited. And many of us become sick today. And our first point of reference is the pharmacy and the physical medicine.
And we're not saying that that shouldn't be the case, we should take the means that Allah subhanho wa Taala has made a meets at medicine, through experience is a means that Allah subhanho wa Taala has established on earth to acquire cure. But don't forget that the Quran also is a means to you being cure and even greater means to you being cured. Thus, we should be diligent with regards to the foreign and our sickness both physical as well as spiritual.
So these are from the few sightings brothers and sisters in our explanation of the bapatla Rasulullah in the Tomita, how to handle for Anima Jura. These are the few examples cited by our scholars hashmatullah here I lay him pertaining to the step module which is abandoning the Quran and we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala at this juncture, just before we begin our circulation,
we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala in this period between the end and the comma, a period cited as a time when the hours are accepted and answered. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those that complete the must have regularly once every month at least even our best. One is reported to have said that a person who doesn't complete the Quran once every month has practiced hedger
which is the abandoning of the Quran May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to raise us with the family of the Quran on the day of gamma to make the Quran an intercessor for us on the day of pialba We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those that are told to seek their destination in Ghana. Based on this. We know that Allah subhanho wa Taala will tell those who are regular what's the Quran to read and rise and the last
For the place that the reach upon reciting the last ayah is their position in Jannah. Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from amongst those that has a position,
set agenda based on the Quran
and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to get us in Ghana, with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Sahara
and those that were truly dutiful and diligent when it came to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala I mean had Allah lm everything correct said My dear brothers and sisters is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is perfect and any mistakes are from myself and SharePoint and I seek
forgiveness. I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and I'm grateful to your invite and hospitality and look forward to the next two days together as we complete three days together. Bismillahi Tana with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Ali he was ready to handle that he will become the satanic Lama we have a connection to Allah Allah He led us through the corner to relax Ramallah
