Do you know what abou hoorah Radi Allahu Anhu used to say about the house in which the Quran is recited. He said it becomes spacious for its inhabitants and the good of it becomes plentiful, it spreads and multiplies. The angels come to it and the devils leave it. And the house in which the Quran is not recited becomes cramped for its inhabitants and it has little good in it and the devils come to it. May Allah protect us all. Allah subhanaw taala tells us men can you already do thriller but duniya Thorin de la Heathrow Abu duniya
waka long who sent me um, they'll sleep it all. Whoever desires the reward of this world than with Allah is the reward of this world and the Hereafter. And Allah subhanaw taala is the All Hearing the all see we are talking about blessings in our homes and in our lives. Some people they have massive homes, but no feeling of being home. Some people have massive families Masha Allah but they always feel alone and isolated. Other people may have smaller physical homes, but a feeling of contentment and sufficiency. There are something called Baraka blessing, in which one gets more out of less and feels more satisfied with it. For example, $1 with Baraka with blessings may go as far as $10
Without a small home physically with Baraka may be more peaceful and sufficient for its inhabitants than a palace or a mansion without any Baetica whatsoever. A Blissett home therefore, is far more than just four walls and a roof. It is a home of tranquility, a home of serenity. It is a safe haven, a place of privacy to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala it's a place to be with one's family if Allah has blessed you with family. Now, how do some homes gain more blessings more Medaka and why do other homes and other people lose it in their lives? It was reported that Abdullah bin Masaru and only Allah one. He said, Verily, the emptiest of houses are those that are empty of the book of
Allah. Think about this and your relationship with the Quran and the Quran within your home. When your home is blessed with the Quran due to your living upon it. It impacts your relationships even within that house, between a husband and a wife, between parents and their children, brother and a sister and relatives and guests as well. The light of the Quran impact the raising of one's child and the blessings that they find in their lives as well.
There's a wonderful story about one of the famous and foremost Quran reciters in the world, one of the most foremost reciters Sheikh Hamza Rashid Sufi. His re citation is well known has mesmerized millions of people over many years. And he shares a beautiful story about himself as a young boy walking past his father with an English textbook and he was dressed in pants and a shirt. His father was also someone who had mastered the recitation of the Quran. And he was sitting down after his daily devotional after praying the Lord's Prayer. And he summoned his son and he asked him, What are you studying? He saw his son carrying this textbook. What are you studying? He said English.
shahada Rashid said he didn't tell me what to study and not to study. But he told me to look around the masjid that we were sitting in, look around this Masjid. He said, Who do these stores belong to? Who do all the stores belong to the stores right around the machine? There were around 15 stores around that mustard, and also a villa that their family lived in.
He said, Father, they belong to you. His father said Do I know any English? He said No father, his father said what I have is the Quran. And I want you to know that if you want a dunya this life then be close to the Quran. And if you want the hereafter also be close to the Quran. And in fact, he said this is the Tafseer of the verse that you heard earlier on. Min Kana you read with however dunya find Allah hito dunya will ask you know what kind of low samyama CETOL. Whoever desires the reward of this world than with Allah's the reward of this world and the hereafter in other words you can get with the Quran with your sincere you with your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala it
could be a door of provision of a door of happiness and Liz, in this life and in the next life and Allah subhanaw taala
Allah does not give anyone anything with a cause that is greater than because of the Quran.
I want you to reflect on the following Hadith and your situatedness your experience and your home with relation to this hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, recite the Quran in your homes, for the inhabitants of the heavens see them, like people on Earth, see the stars. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, do not make your houses like the graveyards do not make your houses like the graveyards. The devil runs away from the house in which Surah Al Baqarah is recited. So this blessing we are talking about comes in so many different forms, and one of the ways the recitation of the Quran and specifically Surat Al Baqarah. In the home, it brings a Baraka a
blessing. And it also expels the devils and protects your home, there's a fortress around your house. And when the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam said, Don't make your homes into graveyards, it means don't make it lifeless of worship. So for example, a man may pray all his prayers in the mosque and all his sunnah volunteer prayers as well. But then he doesn't pray any volunteer prayers at home. So he doesn't mention a lot as much within the house, the Prophet salallahu Addyson discourage that. And so you should have some portion of your remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala and your worship done at home. And in fact, the the emphasis here and encouragement is to pray your
Sunan at home, there is another element that we want to pay attention to, and especially for the parents, there might be some mothers and fathers who read the Quran every single day and they have a routine. But their routine is before the children wake up, or while the children are maybe at school. And while they themselves. The parents are on their way maybe to work or within the house or wherever it may be. They've been doing this consistently for years, not realizing that effectively because their routine is away from the ice eyes of their children away from the sight of their children. They've never actually modeled reading the Quran to their children, so their children have
never seen or rarely see their parents reading the Quran. There was a man who was interviewed on a TV show and he had three daughters. All of them were somewhere in their journey of memorizing the Quran. One of them had half of the Quran memorized another one more than that, another less than that. And the interviewer, rightfully so asked the proud father, what is your secret? And he simply said, I am memorizing wisdom. I was saying is cliche that a family that prays together stays together. The people of the Quran are the people of Allah. So what about a family that every single day chooses to be people of a lot together? What blessing or Baraka are they going to have in their
lives? How will the angels see them on Earth in terms of the stars of this world? So let's inspire each other. What Baraka What blessing Have you seen in your life or the lives of the people around you due to the Quran?
