How can you be from the most elite group in the entire world. Sometimes people rush to purchase brand name clothes or cars or to live in certain cities only because they want the social prestige that comes with it. The cool factor in their eyes to be seen a certain way, it might make them think that they're good. And for some people, unfortunately, they think they're the best of people, they may look down on others. Other people may rush to get degrees for the sake of showing off their intellect, or to get fame and following online and to influence and it makes them feel some kind of subconscious need for validation is filled from others. Or perhaps some people might think that they
are better than others or the best.
If you were to survey people today and ask for the best of people, they might give you different responses, and those responses will reflect something they perceive as moral or good. And Allah subhanaw taala tells us Yeah, are you
now gonna come back?
What you're gonna come show Ruben Wakaba Papa Anita, who in Kurama, Qumran don't law here at Spa come in Allah Honeyman hobby. The part I want you to pay attention to. The most honorable of you, the best of you, in the sight of Allah, or those who have the most Taqwa May Allah grant us that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us something that could motivate us and change our entire lives. He said the best of you is the one who learns the Quran and teaches it to others Hi documenta alum and Quran Allah Allah Halima. Now this hadith refers to those who learn and teach and learning and teaching the Quran includes two general categories. The first is you're teaching
someone how to recite the Quran, and maybe as well how to memorize the Quran, re citation, and maybe memorization if you will. And the second category we can include what the understanding and meaning of the Quran what does this mean what what is this surah about? Now, this is a reminder that learning the Quran for oneself isn't the most noble thing, that there is honor and reward and status with Allah, if you also teach what you're learning. Sometimes people hear this and automatically think, well, I did not memorize the Quran, and I probably won't. This does not require you to memorize the entire Quran but rather anything you can learn of the Quran and teach others is good
for you and good for the world. And this great act of worship. It's one of the means of spreading the Divine Words of Allah subhanaw taala throughout society, throughout the world throughout the generations, it has a ripple effect that we cannot measure or see if we believe the Quran is the ultimate guidance. And it is a message from the Creator to the creation. It is a source of light for every darkness. It is a cure for every illness, then surely the one who learns it and teaches it is spreading one of the greatest gifts to the world. What happens if you continue to learn it and read it? And you take it as your friend? You take the Quran as your companion, a Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam said, Indeed Allah subhanaw taala has his own people amongst mankind. So they asked, Oh Messenger of Allah, who are they? He said whom a halal Quran, they are the people of the Quran. They are the people of the Quran, Allah's own people and those who are closest to him. Lula, he was ha Sato. I want you to think about this for a moment that Allah subhanaw taala has specified a group of people from mankind as his people, his group, and they are specified even within the larger circle of believers of servants of Allah. One of the scholars said, this hadith applies to the reciter, whose heart is free from ailments and his behavior is free of misconduct, meaning what
if you want to be considered amongst a loss people, the people in the law subhanaw taala, you will have to work on purifying your internal state and your external state. Internally, you have to purify yourself and externally doing acts of worship obeying Allah subhanaw taala. So that you are amongst this group, those who read the Quran consistently throughout the year. And they live upon it, we pray and we hope they are Allah subhanaw taala has people and those who are closest to him. And while there are many ranks and many degrees of believers, the people of the Quran are rightfully labeled as the people of Allah, this is Kalam Allah, it is the word of Allah. What more honorable
group is there than the group of the one who forgives has mercy upon us and allows the believers to enter paradise? What group is there? That's better than the group that is claimed by the creator of the
universe while people are passionately chasing after wealth, fame, power and social validation, acceptance into different groups and even loyalty groups of prestige and status, the true believers are pursuing the Quran and the love of their Lord. How do you want a lot to see you to look at him? A prophet Sall Allahu Allahu wa sallam said, Those who act upon the commands of the Quran. They are the fevered and friends of Allah, may Allah allow us to be amongst his friends amongst those who are chosen amongst those who are acting upon the Quran and not just claiming it to be our guide. And one of the necessary aspects of being a person who's befriending the Quran is that we practice what we
are reading is that we implement it in our everyday lives. And this leads to of course, becoming amongst the friends of Allah subhanho wa taala. So I will leave you heard this question and you can comment below, amongst the people that you know, or have met in life who reminds you of the Quran in your life who reminds you of the Quran in your life?
