Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:07--> 00:00:07

How are y'all doing?

00:00:11--> 00:00:24

Earlier a lot of Sunil Karim Allah Bharath rubella Humana shavonda rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. Rubbish Riley sorry my silly emri word that Amelie saniya poco de probenecid in our in my

00:00:26--> 00:01:16

Eman bill Kota belief in the Scriptures, the books that Allah soprano data has revealed. Today inshallah we'll begin from page number 41. The purpose of the Scriptures. Why is it that alasa paneled artists sent the books? Why did he send them with his profits to people? What's the reason for the purpose of guidance? Because remember that when Allah subhanaw taala said Adam are listening to the world? What did he say for Ma, TN aka mini? Huda, then if guidance comes to you from me, then whoever follows the guidance then there will be no fear upon them, nor will they grieve. So Allah subhanaw taala promised at that time that he will send guidance. So this is the reason why he sent

00:01:17--> 00:02:05

the books to enlightened people, to give life to the dead hearts, to dispel the darkness of disbelief of ignorance of hypocrisy. They came as a source of guidance to call people to the worship of Allah, to teach them to remind them of the purpose of their lives. In the Quran, so little man, number 16, we learn about the Quran, that ye d b Hilaire, who through this book, Allah guides who Manitoba is one who whoever follows his whoever pursues his happiness is approval, meaning whoever wants to make Allah happy, that Allah guides that person through the Quran to what Subala Salaam, the ways of peace, meaning the ways that lead to eternal peace. And where is that, in general? So

00:02:05--> 00:02:30

this book leads to paradise, where you lead your home in a lumati in an odd evening, and it takes them out of darkness into the light by his permission, where d him illustrata Mr. Kim and guides them to the right way. So in this ayah alone, what do we learn that the Quran came as a guidance? Yesterday? You carried your home takes them out of darkness into light.

00:02:31--> 00:03:16

Then what is the importance of believing in the scriptures? Is it really important? Is it a big deal if a person does not believe in one of the books, let's say he believes in the Koran, but he says I don't believe that Allah ever sent the Torah or Allah ever sent a scripture before the Quran? Is that acceptable? No. Eman in the books is a part of the man which means that if a person does not believe in all of the Scriptures, then his Eman is not acceptable. It is not valid. Where do we learn this from First of all, from the fact that Allah subhanaw taala praises those who deliver his messages? Those who brought the books, those who delivered the messages and Who were they? Who were

00:03:16--> 00:03:26

they the prophets of Allah. So Allah praises the prophets who brought the books and if Allah praises them, then what does it show how important those books are?

00:03:27--> 00:04:13

In total, Isaiah 39, Allah describes the prophets Allah Dena ueber, Luna rissalah, to lay those who deliver the messages of Allah, Shona who and they fear Him, while I have shown that I hadn't in the law, and they do not fear anyone except Allah, meaning they fear Allah with regards to the messages that have been given to them, so they deliver them completely. Then Allah subhanaw taala also praises those who believe in the scriptures. So those who deliver the scriptures are praiseworthy, and those who believe in the scriptures are also praiseworthy. At the end of sort of Baccarat, what do we learn em and abasolo Bhima Ponce de la uma Robbie. Well, Manos the messenger has believed the

00:04:13--> 00:04:59

believers have believed what do they believe in coloane Amina belay mamilla equity worker to be and his books also. Then Allah commands people to believe in them. If it was not important to believe in the Scriptures, then Allah penalty would not have commanded people to believe in the scriptures. And especially Allah orders the believers to believe in all the books who are the believers, those who already believe in the Quran? Correct. But Allah says in Surah Nisa, I want 36 year old Latina Amano amino Bella he also Li wolky tabula rasa de Waal kita Villa De Anza. All you have believed, believe in Allah, meaning perfect your faith in Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

improve it believe as you should believe in Allah, His Messenger and the book which Allah has sent on his messenger, meaning the Quran, and also the books which Allah revealed before. So part of perfecting faith is what? believing in all of the Scriptures, the correct belief.

00:05:20--> 00:06:03

Then those who rejected them were destroyed. Those who rejected the books of Allah the messages that Allah sent, they were punished seriously. In a little paragraph 93 we learn further, we'll learn whom the messenger he turned away from his nation when they were punished. We'll call a comb locker, the ability to convince Allah to be, he said, Oh my people, I indeed conveyed to you. The messages of my Lord salahaddin salam also said the same thing that I conveyed to you all the messages, and I was sincere to you, but you didn't want to listen. So why should I grieve over you? Then denying any part of the books is this belief, rejecting any part of them is

00:06:05--> 00:06:48

included in it when we learn what either paid me to be under the law, when it is said to the Jews that believe in what Allah has revealed meaning in the Quran parlano minnow Bhima on zerah. Elena, they say we believe only in that which was revealed to us were Kuru and Abby Malhotra who and they deny that which is beyond it, meaning anything besides the Torah, what do they do? They rejected. So Allah subhanaw taala condemned such people. So how important is the belief in the Scriptures, all of the Scriptures, it's very important, because those who brought the scriptures, Allah subhanaw taala praises them. Those who believe in the Scriptures, Allah praises them. Allah commands people to

00:06:48--> 00:07:31

believe in all of them. Those who rejected them were punished and who is punished? He who has correct faith? No, he whose faith is not acceptable, and also denying any part of them is disbelief. Now we see that the scriptures that Allah soprano data revealed whether it was the scripture that was given to musala cinema, or the cinema or to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, all of the books, they have some similarities, meaning they resemble one another in many ways. Why? Because if you think about it, who did they come from? Allah subhanaw taala. For what purpose? for guidance, right? And obviously, because each nation was different, each community was different and the need of that time

00:07:31--> 00:08:17

was different. This is why the commands were different. But essentially the message was what it was the same. So what are the similarities in the books that are lost or penalty revealed and the common themes in them? First of all, they're all from the same source from who from Allah subhana wa Tada. So earlier on, I went to for Alif Lam Meem Allahu Allah Illa Illa who will hire by Yun Nasrallah, la Calcutta will help. Allah has sent the book upon you. You as in Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and then later on in the verse what ends Allah tala tala mg, and he is the one who sent the Torah and the engine. So all the books who reveal them, unless upon then they all came for the same purpose. Allah

00:08:17--> 00:09:02

sent all of the books for the same purpose, what was that purpose, to guide humanity to take them out of error, instead of the natural Ayah 36? Well, aka the birth nificantly Metin Rasulullah, we sent to every community, a messenger and the messenger brought what messages, right? Whether it was in the form of a complete book, or a reminder of what the previous messenger brought reinforcement of that, whatever it was, but every messenger was sent in order to do what a narrow Buddha law which then he was able to call people to worship Allah and avoid the same purpose, same goal, then we see that all the books contained within them the same Arpita the same belief. And what is that belief,

00:09:03--> 00:09:45

of the oneness of Allah soprano of the truthfulness of Allah is messengers of the importance of following the books of the coming of the Day of Judgment of resurrection. He said, Jenna now, all of the books brought the same arcada remember that when it comes to the laws, the different? The different? Like, for example, certain laws that were given to musasa they were different from the laws that were given to Muhammad Sallallahu send them like for example, in the previous nations war booty, was it permissible for the believers to take and consume No, but for the Ummah of Mohammed Salah lawless and was it permissible? Yes, it has been made Hara in the Quran for kuruma, melanin

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

hallowen by 11 each of that which you have obtained as booty as halal and pie, but for the previous nations, it was forbidden. And this is just one example. So the laws differed but the

00:10:00--> 00:10:50

Matter of Arpita never deferred because Arpita is what its reality All right, so it was never changed. Sort of earlier on is 79 mcenery Basha in a new deal hola hola que daba will help my one Nevada, it is not possible that a person is given from Allah, the book and the Wisdom and Prophethood so my akula nasty Qunari by the lemon doula, then he would say to the people be worshipers of me besides Allah, meaning worship me instead of worshipping Allah? Well, I can but what would that messenger say to the people coonoor abahani Jean, become the servants of Allah of the Lord, the man content to allemaal kita because you teach the book, you learn the book, will be

00:10:50--> 00:11:43

my content editor soon. So the message of every book was what be servants of Allah. So all the books brought the same Arpita then we see that all the books, all the scriptures, whether it was the first one or the last, what did it teach? General goodness, we see that in all scriptures It was called to crave. All right, like for example, all the books spoke about the concept of cell web and recall reward and punishment that your deeds matter. your deeds will have consequences, your efforts will be examined, your deeds will be judged in the hereafter you will be compensated. So for example, instead of the buyer 36 to 41 we learn and lamb you know, but be male or female sir, or has he not

00:11:43--> 00:12:08

been informed of that which was in the scriptures of Moosa? Meaning a message that was in the books that were given to musasa. What Ibrahima lady was, and the books of Ibrahim, who is Abraham, the one who fulfilled his obligations. So what is it that was mentioned in the book of Moosa in the Book of Abraham, and left as you as you're done with,

00:12:09--> 00:12:40

that no bear of burden will bear the burden of another meaning each person will be responsible for who for himself. So this is something that is mentioned in all the books in the Quran, in the Torah, in the books of Abraham and s&m? What a laser in Santa Elana sir, and that a person will not have anything except that which he strove for what unnecessary Whoa. So, for euro and that his efforts will be examined the menu designer who does

00:12:41--> 00:13:23

then he will be given full compensation. So, we see that this concept of reward or punishment of your deeds, having some weight, this is something that is mentioned in all of the Scriptures, all the books give the same teachings. Likewise, purification does gear to knifes, that is also mentioned in the previous scriptures. It is mentioned in the Quran, like for example, a little earlier, but the afla Herman does occur with a charisma be for Salah, who is successful, the one who purified himself and he remembered the name of his Lord and he performed the prayer belt sironen higher the dunya will fly to home.

00:13:25--> 00:13:34

In the hether, left sorrowful Ola this has mentioned in the former scriptures which scriptures are they so be able to Hema.

00:13:36--> 00:14:27

So you see, same message, same call to goodness credit. Then we see that all the books they taught right conduct, they taught guidance. For example, in a hadith in Bukhari, we learned that moosari salaam when he went to meet Hubbard and learn from him, when he met him, he said, I am Moosa. So how does that Are You the Messiah of Bani Israel? masala Sam said yes, I am. So how does that What do you want? masala Salaam said that I have come later Alemany Merlin de Lucia. So that you can teach me some right guidance, some right conduct that Allah subhanaw taala has given you knowledge of how to set ma FECA and the law to be a deca anila here yep, deca Hello said, is it not sufficient for

00:14:27--> 00:14:55

you that the Torah is in your hands and the divine inspiration comes to you? Meaning when you have the Torah, and the Torah already teaches rushed? It already teaches higher than Why do you need to come to me? You understand. So what do we learn from this what is the Torah call to what rushed it taught, rushed and not just the dollar, but all the other scriptures also just take the example of the 10 commandments,

00:14:56--> 00:15:00

the 10 commandments and we see a very similar list in

00:15:00--> 00:15:50

The Quran also All right, and what does it teach rushed? Right. So we see this the similar teachings, calling to guidance right conduct in all of the Scriptures. Likewise, all the books, they taught justice and fairness in total Hadid is 25 Allah says LA County of Santa Rosa Elena will be enough. Certainly we sent our messengers with clear proofs what and then Mr. Whom will kita will Misa and we sent with them the book and the balance why Leah komen Nashville, so that it would judge between the people with justice, meaning the book would decide with justice. So the book brought what justice because the book contained, whose commands are lost, whose decisions, his decisions,

00:15:50--> 00:16:40

and his decisions are based on what absolute justice, then we see that all the books, they proposed facade and deviation, meaning they condemned that they forbade that, whether that facade was in Akita in belief, or in a HELOC, in manners, in actions, whatever kind of facade it was, all the books condemned it, no book, no scripture promoted facade. No scripture promoted sin, not possible. Because if it's from Allah, it will only promote goodness. This is why if from the previous scriptures, we see any remnants of them, then if they promote any kind of sin, then we can't accept it. We can't accept it, because it's not possible that a lot of panel data would tell people to do

00:16:40--> 00:17:00

wrong. So for example, any kind of immorality. So for instance, in the Bible, there are stories about new Harrison about the wood or the sinner about today, man or listen, look at insulin. And major sins are mentioned about them, that they had alcohol or they committed adultery, and the profits are above that.

00:17:02--> 00:17:46

And the profits ways are examples for the people. In the Quran, we see the way that the prophets are described, how are they described? They were all of the righteous, they were patient, they were chased. Look at the qualities of your Heritage Center. These are the center that are mentioned in sort of modicum of chastity higher, right. So if there's anything that contradicts it, in the previous scriptures that we find today, not acceptable because all the books were against facade and deviation in sort of the Messiah 161 were the human Rebbe Wakata know who and who the Jews consumed Riba were as they were forbidden from it, where was that prohibition in their book, so Riba is

00:17:46--> 00:17:50

wrong. This is why the previous books also forbade it.

00:17:51--> 00:18:36

Then we see the acts of worship that are mentioned in the Quran, almost the exact same were given to the previous nations of so and where were they mentioned in their books. So for example, total MBA is 73. What Oh hyena la in fear in La la, the previous messengers, a lot inspired to them. Fair a little highlight the doing of good deeds, various good deeds, what ecommerce Allah what eater zakka to establish the prayer to give this occur in the stories of ECE artists in Imodium, Artesia, we learn about Luca, such the Salah, so we see that the previous nations were also commanded to perform to perform what Sunnah. They were also commanded to give some kind of Zakah

00:18:37--> 00:19:19

likewise in sort of Baccarat ii 183 Yeah, are you alladhina amanu quotevalet como cM kamakoti Valentina min, publico, fasting has been prescribed upon you, just as it was prescribed to those people who came before you. Likewise, hedge sort of hedge is 27 whereas in finance, he will hedge announced in the people had Abraham Madison was told to make this announcement so that everybody would come for hedge and we see that they would, they would come to Makkah, in order to perform hedge instead of a hedge i a 34. Also, we learned well, he couldn't do math and jalna men second, for every nation, we made men suck, meaning ritual slaughter they had to perform. So we see that the

00:19:19--> 00:19:56

act of worship also were very similar. Salah is not a new concept that was given to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, the cat is not a new concept. Fasting is not a new concept. Remember Miriam she was told that if anyone speaks to you tell them that I am fasting today fallen oka Lima Lima, in say a different kind of fast but the concept of fasting existed. Then we see that the scriptures also contained in them prophecies. So for example, the previous scriptures, they had some prophecies in the Quran also we learned about many prophecies, what is a prophecy,

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

something about the future that something that will happen in

00:20:00--> 00:20:24

The future. So for example, in the Torah, what do we learn? Our beloved us? He said, This verse which is in the Quran, which is Yeah, you know bu in our Salah cache hidden one MOBA Sheeran, one of the Iran, he said this verse which means that all Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam we have sent to you as a witness as a bringer of glad tidings and as a warner, this appears in the total also.

00:20:25--> 00:21:14

He said this appears in the total also, but in a slightly different form. And what is that I'll just read the translation, that verily we have sent to you as a witness as a bringer of glad tidings and as a warner and as a protector for the illiterates. You are my slave and my apostle, and I have named you al mutawa kill the one who depends upon Allah. You are neither hard hearted, nor a fierce character, nor one who shouts in the markets, you do not return evil for evil, but excuse and forgive Allah who will not take you unto him until he guides through you, until he guides through you, a crooked nation on the right path, by causing them to say, none has the right to be

00:21:14--> 00:21:44

worshipped. But Allah with such a statement, he will cause to open blind eyes, deaf ears, and hardened hearts. And we learned this from Bahati. Because we see that there were companions who had knowledge of the Torah, who had knowledge of the Injeel. So when they heard this either said, Oh, this is something very similar to what is found in the Torah. And even today, you know, you come across something that is mentioned in the Bible, and instantly it will remind you of what something you read in the Quran.

00:21:46--> 00:22:02

Then Injeel also has a prophecy in ascensor, too. So he has a collection of book of a hadith by Giovanni. He has this hadith from Ashtabula Rhonda, that I shall deliver on her said that it is written in the Injeel.

00:22:03--> 00:22:51

It is written in the Injeel, that the last prophet is neither rude nor harsh in heart, nor is he want to scream in the markets, nor does he recommend evil with it's like, rather, he forgives and overlooks. So was this a correct prophecy? Of course, because the prophets of Allah said it was exactly like that. Now, this is what is common in all of the Scriptures. We see that when restarted Islam brought to the NGO, what did he say Muslim? It confirms the truthfulness of that which is before it. The Quran also is called Muslim. Right? Because it fulfill the prophecy that was mentioned in the previous scriptures. All right. Now, with regards to the previous scriptures, we

00:22:51--> 00:23:26

know that they have been changed, and we believe in them, but we believe in which version, the original, the one that our last panel data revealed, not the one that the people have changed. And when it comes to following the books, then what do we follow the Quran? Why? Because the Quran has abrogated the previous scriptures, and if there was anything that was important and necessary for people to know, then where is it preserved? In the Quran? The Quran is complete, which is why we see that once men are mortal Budo I know he was reading a part of the Torah, the prophets of Allah son who got upset

00:23:27--> 00:23:49

and he said that you have no need of that basically. Because even if musasa were to come today, what would he have to follow the Quran? Because the Quran is complete in its message. So this is why it's necessary that a person believes in the Quran and his belief in the Quran is correct.

00:23:50--> 00:23:57

All right, so Eman bill is completed and perfected. With what Eman bill

00:23:58--> 00:24:06

and Eman bill Hold on. How important is it? If you compare the Quran with the previous scriptures?

00:24:07--> 00:24:49

The Quran in light of the previous scriptures meaning in comparison to the previous scriptures in relation to the previous scriptures. How is it? What's the difference between the Quran and the previous scriptures? Is the Quran any better? Definitely How? First of all insulinoma either if 48 return what and Zelda elated catella will help people so differently my Avenida de Miel kita Mohave in an IRA the Quran is more Haman over the previous scriptures and remember that Mohammed means what? How can it is the judge over the previous scriptures meaning now everything will be according to what the Quran says. So if something contradicts the Quran, you have to leave it

00:24:50--> 00:25:00

and if the Quran mentioned something, you accept it. If there is something mentioned the previous scriptures that we find today that conforms to the Quran accepted if it continues

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

It said, leave it.

00:25:02--> 00:25:44

And we see that Mohammed also means also gives the meaning of that it's a completion a conclusion of all the previous scriptures. This is why the route and I have said that the Quran is the most detailed, it is the most decisive it is the most comprehensive book compared to all the previous scriptures. The most detailed, the most comprehensive, the most decisive into the universe is 37. Allah says women cannot handle annual and you've run into nilla not possible that this Quran would be fabricated, it is from who only Allah. Well I confess Nicoletti beignet he first of all it is a confirmation does leak of that which was before meaning of the previous scriptures. Secondly, what

00:25:44--> 00:26:00

have slayed Akita and a detail of the book, meaning of the previous books, all the main teachings that are present in the previous scriptures, where do you find the detail from? Where do you find the detail from from the Quran?

00:26:01--> 00:26:12

So all the main concepts that were revealed before you find their detail in the most comprehensive way, the most clear way present preserved in the book of Allah in the

00:26:14--> 00:27:05

then insert use of IO 111 McKenna hedison you start off with lacking vehicle Albania D with of sila Konishi, this Quran is not fabricated, it is a confirmation of that which came before it. And it is a detail of everything. Meaning the detail that you need concerning any matter where when you find it in the wahoo, then a guidance and a mercy. But for who? Those who believe. Then we see that this is the reason why the people who truly believed in the scriptures that they were given when they learned about the Quran, what did they do? They believed they accepted. For example, we learn in total costs if 52 to 53, and Latina Latina woman kitanomine COVID II, home be

00:27:06--> 00:27:42

those to whom we gave the book before it, meaning those who follow the Torah the Injeel before the Quran came when they learn about the Quran, what do they do? Whom be you know, they believe in it, what do they utilize or lay him on? When it is recited to them, they say we believe in it in all Hakuna rabina It is indeed the truth from our Lord in condemn and probably muslimeen we were submitting to Allah even before it. So if a new command has come, a new book has come, definitely we surrender, we will submit over there.

00:27:43--> 00:28:36

And there are many examples. For instance, under Joshua who was the king of Abba senior publisher, we learn from a hadith which is in Muslim Mohammed that when he asked the group of Muslims, if there was anybody who put under the new Java below or new he recited, suits Maria and when he recited we learned in the Hadees. Ferber care and the joshy feber care he wept with Allah by Allah Ferber Cal Allah he and the joshy he wept had been Alicia who until his beard became wet. He cried profusely, not just him, but even the people who were around him, because when they heard the Quran, they knew it was from Allah. It wasn't the speech of a human being, then of the Laban salon, he was Jewish.

00:28:36--> 00:29:05

And we learned about the story of his conversion from Bukhari, a very interesting incident about how he converted and how he declared his conversion before his people, but he was a knowledgeable man from among the Jews. He saw the prophets autolysin coming into Medina, he heard one of the first things the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught when he came to Medina of the Lebanese and I went and asked the prophets of lonesome, several questions. And when he heard their answer, he said, I shall do Allah Illa Illa Allah shadow under Mohammed rasulillah.

00:29:06--> 00:29:08

Then we see what acaba nofal.

00:29:09--> 00:29:54

Remember that he was from Makkah and Arab. But in the time of ignorance, he embraced Christianity. And he also read the Bible. When the prophet SAW the laws and received the war he and he was overcome with fear Khadija widow and her took him to what are called the NOFA. And when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him about what had happened, he said, viola is the same Nanos that came to Risa. And if I remain alive, until the day that your people will expel you from your city, I will support you. So he also confirmed the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, by counsel. nanofibrous is someone who had a lot of knowledge of the engine when he learned about the climb, he

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

also embraced it. He also accepted it. Now that we see that the previous

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

scriptures informed about the coming of the Quran about the coming of the last prophet. The Quran in relation to the previous scriptures is the most complete, most comprehensive, most detailed, and this is the reason why the Quran has a very, very great status.

00:30:18--> 00:30:24

Basically, the Quran is what distinguishes between a believer and a non believer.

00:30:25--> 00:30:38

Many people can believe in God. Many people can believe in the coming of the hereafter. But if there is a person who believes in the Quran, and there is another person who does not believe in equipment, they're not the same.

00:30:39--> 00:31:01

They're not the same. They're going to end up in completely different places. insolate hood is 17 we learn of Americana Alabama Hinata. in the lobby, he went through Russia he the men who were in Hubli he could have a Moosa emammal Wah, wah, basically the previous scriptures and the Quran, woman yuck for behavioral therapy for now, Roma or

00:31:03--> 00:31:21

whoever rejects it does not believe in it in what in the Quran, Minal aza from any of the groups you know, in the Quran, we learned about many groups, the Jews, the Christians, isabey own modules, right, and the believers also. So these are all the different.

00:31:23--> 00:31:37

So any person from any of the, if he rejects the Quran, what does he is a phenomenal reader, then the fire is his aboard, the fire will be his home, that is where he will end up.

00:31:39--> 00:32:23

Because if a person doesn't believe in the Quran, then he's missing out on what true guidance, then nothing that he's doing is correct is acceptable to Allah Subhana. Allah sent this book so that it would be accepted, followed. So if a person does not accept it does not follow it. He's not upon the right guidance. So when he's not upon the right guidance, he's not going to make it to gender. And we see that the status of the Quran is indeed very high. From the very fact that the Quran has many names. And the Quran has many beautiful descriptions in the Quran is called Kitab and Aziz, an herbal book, a book that has dignity. inshallah, in Lumo, Quran, you will learn about the various

00:32:23--> 00:32:57

names and descriptions of the Quran. And remember that when something has many names, than what does it show its importance, it's great value. Then what are some of the unique characteristics of the Quran? First of all, we see that Allah subhanaw taala, has promised to preserve it, the previous scriptures, this problem is was not made, unless a penalty did not promise to preserve the data or the NGO, which is why we see that it was lost many times. And people also changed it. And Allah subhanaw taala let that change happen. Why

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

don't you ever wonder sometimes that the people of the book, change the book, alter the book and unless the panels are allowed? Why?

00:33:08--> 00:33:16

Exactly because it was not meant to remain until the end of time. The final scripture the Quran was going to come.

00:33:17--> 00:33:33

You understand. So because the Quran is a final scripture, the last book of guidance, this is the reason why Allah subhanaw taala himself has taken the responsibility to preserve it. So no matter how much people try to alter the book, to change the book,

00:33:34--> 00:33:44

to get rid of it, can they never, they cannot remember even in the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam 70 companions were sent

00:33:46--> 00:33:56

with a group of people in order to teach them and many of them were who, who fell, those who were knowledgeable to Quran and all of them were martyred. Right?

00:33:57--> 00:34:27

We see that soon after the Prophet sallallahu sallam, there were many battles that were fought, and obviously many casualties also, and who are all those people, people who knew the Quran? So when Omar Abdullah and who saw that the people of the Quran are going he got worried that what will happen so he insisted that obaku I know he should have the Quran collected at the time of arrest man, although I know what happened. It was spread then.

00:34:28--> 00:34:59

So Allah subhanaw taala has promised to preserve it into a 309 in Nan Dona Zelma decra we're in Allahu Allah Hafiz zone, we have revealed a reminder and we are going to preserve it into the toilet I have 40 to lay the hill bathroom and mania day while I'm in coffee, you know falsehood can enter it from before nor from behind it meaning you cannot insert any kind of falsehood into the Quran. Neither at the beginning of a verse nor in the middle of a verse nor at the end. You cannot people have tried, but they have failed me.

00:35:00--> 00:35:18

verbally, because people have tried to change the meaning of the Quran, they have tried to change the words of the Quran also. But Alhamdulillah, there has always remained a group of the believers who have remained upon the truth, who have struggled to preserve the truth.

00:35:19--> 00:35:55

And inshallah, later on, I'll tell you about the fitna of Hong Kong kuranda how some people, they said that the Quran is created, and they wanted to enforce this belief upon the Muslims. And we see that the government was greatly involved in this. And all the scholars were instructed by the government to give the fatwa that the Quran is created. And if this belief was accepted, and if those scholars did not stand their ground, then you know, what would happen today, people would not give importance to the

00:35:56--> 00:36:04

because I'm called on is like any other creative thing? Right? Any creative thing, it can be changed, it can be altered, it's not sacred.

00:36:05--> 00:36:44

You understand? My look is not sacred. Right? But what is from Allah, his speech that is sacred, you can't change that. So we see that Allah subhanaw taala, preserved the Quran, and he will preserve it. Then we also see that the Quran is for all of mankind engine and the previous scriptures that were sent to specific nations, right? But the Quran has been sent to all of mankind, and not just mankind but also jinn. It is the aggregator of all the previous scriptures, it is an eternal miracle. The Quran is also the rope of Allah,

00:36:45--> 00:37:13

the rope of Allah here connection with Allah, in a hadith which is an associate to Sahara, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, in the Hedden Khurana surburban barafu will be at the waterfall who be a deacon, this iron is a rope. It's one side is in Allah's hand, and the other is in your hands. One side is with Allah, and the other is with you.

00:37:14--> 00:37:32

This is your connection with Allah. Therefore, hold on to it firmly, firmly, don't let go of it. This is your connection with your Lord, because then you shall never go astray after meaning as long as you hold on to this plan, you'll never go astray. But if you leave it,

00:37:33--> 00:38:20

if you leave it then what will happen? Your connection with your Lord is lost. And when that is lost, then you are astray. In another Hades, we learn what is a Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the book of Allah, the Exalted and glorious, and that is the rope of Allah. The Book of Allah is what have Lola he who holds it fast would be on right guidance, and he who abandons it would be in air, for sure he will go astray. This Quran is the most excellent scripture compared to the previous scriptures. It is the best garble about he said, You must hold on to the Quran, for it is what will bring you understanding power of the intellect meaning it will make you sharper in your

00:38:20--> 00:38:20

mind.

00:38:21--> 00:38:28

It will make your brain sharper. Is that true? Yes. This take the example of people who memorize

00:38:29--> 00:39:03

how they excel in their studies, right? People who study the Quran, then they get some sense, and they take life seriously before that they have a very non serious attitude. They're absolute losers in life. But when they study the Quran that their lives become meaningful and purposeful. So the Quran you must hold on to it because it will bring you the understanding power. Mm hmm. Family aka and it will also bring to you noodle hikma, the light of wisdom, this is what will make you wise.

00:39:04--> 00:39:11

And if you leave the Quran Will you have wisdom, nowhere and fountains of knowledge in a B or in?

00:39:12--> 00:39:24

If you want to gain knowledge, if you want to increase in your knowledge, then what should you hold on to the book of Allah. He said it is the newest book of the Most Merciful, the latest book,

00:39:25--> 00:39:54

the latest that has come from a man and he has said in the Torah, all Mohammed Salah sallallahu Sallam I shall reveal upon you a new Torah that will open the eyes of the blind, the ears of the deaf and the hearts which are in wrapped to the Quran. What will it do? Open the eyes of the blind people who have become deaf it will open up their ears and people who have sealed their hearts open up their hearts.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

Then the Quran is delivered to paradise meaning it's

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

will take a person to gender

00:40:03--> 00:40:05

it will take a person to

00:40:06--> 00:40:21

a heightened assessor to say hey have an O chef you're on my chef farm or my Helen Masada con men gyla who am Emma who are the who and Jenna woman Zarrella who held philosophy circle in

00:40:22--> 00:40:30

the Quran is an intercessor meaning it will intercede and it is one whose intercession shall be accepted.

00:40:32--> 00:40:45

Because Allah will allow the Quran to intercede and when Allah will allow the Quran to intercede for a person, then that intercession will be accepted. It will argue on behalf of those who read it and it will be confirmed.

00:40:47--> 00:40:55

Whoever places it before himself keeps the Quran in front of him. The Quran is the goal. The Quran is the priority the Quran is the focus.

00:40:56--> 00:41:04

The Quran is the highlight of the day. Whoever will keep the Quran in front of him, it will lead him to gymnasts

00:41:05--> 00:41:09

and whoever places it behind his back it will drive him to hellfire.

00:41:10--> 00:41:33

If a person places the Quran in front of him, the Quran will take him to Gen Y for example, if you have the steering wheel in front of you, and the steering wheel will take you somewhere right. So likewise you hold on to the Quran, it will take you somewhere where gender and if a person places it behind him ignores it forgets it, then what will happen? It will push him to hellfire.

00:41:35--> 00:41:40

It will push him to Hellfire drive him to hellfire. The Quran is a source of honor.

00:41:42--> 00:41:48

In a hadith we learn which is a Muslim, that never even or that had it he met

00:41:49--> 00:42:21

or wanted to lower on who was 35 at that time at respond while or mobile no or no had employed him as a meat off maca. So basically, it was a mute of maca. And he met her little widow and who are spent so her mana widow and who asked Nafisa Whom have you appointed as a meat over the people of the valley, meaning you're here who's taking care of the people back in Makkah, you're supposed to be leading them. So he said, even observe, or whatever they weren't who asked and who is even observed.

00:42:23--> 00:42:26

He said he is one of our freed slaves.

00:42:29--> 00:42:44

He said, even a desert is one of our free slaves and I have appointed him as the maid in Makkah, or Morocco and who said so you have appointed a freed slave over the people of Mecca. What were you thinking?

00:42:45--> 00:43:17

He said, he is well versed in the book of Allah, the Exalted great, and he is well versed in the commandments and injunctions of the Sharia, meaning he recites the Quran, he knows the Quran, he applies the Quran. So this is why I thought he was more suitable to lead the people or motobu. Who said, so your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said in the La Jolla Pharaoh behenyl kitabi acquirement. Well, there will be a hurry. By this book, Allah will exalt some people and degrade others.

00:43:18--> 00:43:30

This man who was once a slave was freed. He learned the Quran recites it implements it and today he is leading the people of

00:43:32--> 00:43:34

Makkah imagine

00:43:35--> 00:43:41

why what brought him that status, his freedom, his money, his income, it was the Quran.

00:43:43--> 00:44:10

The Quran is a source of honor. The Quran is the best connection that a person can have with his Lord. The prophets have a lot of them said had these incidental so he had that you shall not return to Allah in nakum lentil dhiru in Allahu vishay in of Bala min Mahajan who, you shall not return to Allah with anything better than what came from him, meaning the Quran.

00:44:11--> 00:44:21

If you want to come closer to Allah, then you can only come closer to him through something that has come from him. And what is it that has come from Allah the Quran?

00:44:24--> 00:44:31

Then the Quran is the most comprehensive scripture, the prophets that a lot of them said the earlier books were revealed upon a single Bab

00:44:32--> 00:44:59

meaning one main topic, one main focus and single health what is health inshallah you'll read more about it in Quran, but it is basically the mode of reading the mode of reading the Quran recitation of the Quran of a scripture basically so he said that the previous books were revealed upon a single web. So one main theme, and a single half meaning one way of recitation.

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

But the Quran has been revealed upon seven avoid and seven. And remember there's different ways of reciting. Then there's more meaning,

00:45:11--> 00:45:55

more meaning. You understand? I don't know if study doesn't intercede that for some I add. In other words in other karate recited slightly differently, so they give more meaning. They give more meaning. Don't be confused about this inshallah you will read about it in in Quran, he said the Quran it contains warnings commands, lawful, unlawful decisive injunctions with a shabby hat and examples. Therefore consider its lawful as lawful and its unlawful as unlawful. Do what you are commanded and refrain from what you are forbidden and take lesson from its examples. act upon its mark and believe in its mother shabby, and say, we believe in it, it is all from our Lord. So we see

00:45:55--> 00:46:00

the Quran compared to the previous scriptures is what more detailed, more meaningful

00:46:02--> 00:46:20

than the Quran is better than what came before it, meaning it is better than the previous scriptures in a hadith and Muslim Mohammed we learn the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said we're pleased to makanda talathi A Sabra I have been given in place of the Torah the seven meaning the several three well the seven long sutras

00:46:21--> 00:46:34

which ones are they? So basically bacala all the way to or off and then not unfurl, but a tober right. So he said in place of the total I have been given these seven long solos.

00:46:35--> 00:46:39

So imagine seven long solos and tala thing

00:46:41--> 00:47:08

okay. And he said I have been given in the place of the Buddha, the 100 meaning the sutras with about 100 verses. inshallah, you learn about this, in order to McDonald's, and I have been given in place of ngl the oft repeated ones being the suitors which are recited a lot, the verses which are repeated a lot in the Quran, and I have been given preference with the Mufasa ones. Meaning one thing that I've been given extra

00:47:09--> 00:47:55

is what the Mufasa also does, which ones are they from sort of Mohammed until the end of the clock? So what do we learn? The prophets Allah Lawson was given something similar to Torah similar to NGO similar to the board, and better. So the Quran is better than what came before it. Did the example of cervical Fatiha the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Hadees and Muslim Mohammed, Allah has not revealed in the Torah, nor in the Injeel any sort of like the mother of the book or Makita. And that is the seven after repeated verses. And it is divided between a loss of data says myself and my servant and my servants will have what he asks for referring to sort of 30 so sort of Fatiha is a

00:47:55--> 00:48:23

sort of the likes of which don't exist in any previous scripture, any previous scripture, what are we that which ones are they? The three soldiers that you recite regularly in the morning in the evening for protection? The prophets of Allah Islam said Hadees Muslim? Shall I not teach you Sutras, the likes of which were neither revealed in the Torah, nor invisible and nor in the furqan? Not a night shall pass on you, except that you must recite them.

00:48:26--> 00:48:43

Listen to this, not a night shall pass on you, except that you must recite them. So every night, you must must recite these solos. Which ones are they? He said, they are sold as a class alfalah anass.

00:48:46--> 00:48:58

In another Hadees, we learn the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked which creation is the most amazing in the matter of Amen. The people said the angels the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said why should the angels not believe the set?

00:49:00--> 00:49:06

Okay then the prophets Eman is the best. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the prophets are sent revelation so why would they not believe?

00:49:07--> 00:49:15

So this habit said the companions of a prophet their Eman is the best. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the companions are with the profit. So why would they not believe

00:49:16--> 00:49:18

it's understandable if they should believe?

00:49:19--> 00:49:40

He said but the most amazing of people in a matter of Eman are those who will come after you and they will find books of Revelation. So they will believe in it and follow it. So they are the most amazing people in respect to email, the most amazing of creation in respect to faith.

00:49:41--> 00:49:44

So those who believe in the Quran, their Eman is really

00:49:46--> 00:49:50

amazing, praiseworthy, impressive.

00:49:51--> 00:49:54

And that just shows how amazing the bucola is.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

Then the Quran is also a message and miracle

00:50:00--> 00:50:00

In one,

00:50:02--> 00:50:13

all the profits were given by you net clear evidences, whether that be your net worth in the form of miracles, or some proofs and arguments, or some events that happened that showed the truthfulness of the messenger.

00:50:14--> 00:50:30

But we see that the Prophet total audison was given a message, meaning the book, and he was also given miracle and what was that miracle? The Quran itself was the miracle musasa was given the staff and the total

00:50:31--> 00:51:10

correct. Restart his son was given the engine and other miracles, the prophets Allah was given the Quran and the Quran is both message and miracle. The Prophet said a lot of times that had eaten Bukhari every prophet was given miracles because of which people believed. But what I have been given is divine inspiration which Allah has revealed to me. So I hope that my followers will outnumber the followers of other prophets on the Day of Resurrection. Because his oma is until when the Day of Judgment, and the Quran is everlasting miracle. The people who saw the staff of moussaka center, okay, it was easy for them to believe that the people who came after they would say, we

00:51:10--> 00:51:46

haven't seen this stuff. Right? The people who were present at the time of research center saw the miracles, but who came later didn't see those miracles. But the Quran is an eternal miracle. It is message and miracle in one. This is a reason why the oma of the prophets of ultimate will be the biggest, more people will believe in Him because even though he has gone, the miracle has remained. And the message will also remain because message miracle, same. How is the Quran a miracle?

00:51:48--> 00:51:49

I was the Quran a miracle.

00:51:50--> 00:51:53

In many ways, first of all, in its language

00:51:55--> 00:51:58

in Shaolin local, and also you will learn about eargasm Quran.

00:51:59--> 00:52:18

So how the Quran defeated the people, how in its language, so powerful, so eloquent. This is why we learned stories of poets, who when they heard the Quran, they stopped saying poetry. They just accepted their eternal defeat that

00:52:19--> 00:52:33

doesn't, you know, it's not worth it anymore. We shouldn't even try to say any verses of poetry because the Quran is so powerful. No matter what I come up with is going to look like nothing in comparison to the grantor they literally gave it up

00:52:35--> 00:52:42

once or modelled on who asked one of the poets to say some verses of poetry and he said, What need Do you have when there is put on?

00:52:44--> 00:52:57

When there's Quran, you don't need any poetry, it's so powerful. And this is why we see that repeatedly in the Quran. The challenge is given produce one surah like it, but do bisola timidly. Right?

00:52:58--> 00:53:11

And produce, you know, verses like it, but the people weren't able to. And there were people who tried to produce something like the Quran, after the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:53:12--> 00:53:16

But what they produced was something completely ridiculous.

00:53:17--> 00:53:28

Because the Quran speaks about Great and Powerful matters, right that affect the heart that shake your heart. And what they said was something that only made you laugh.

00:53:30--> 00:53:35

Then we see that the Quran, like I mentioned earlier that it was revealed in seven a huddle.

00:53:37--> 00:54:10

So it's not just that the language is eloquent, but it is. So it's so deep, that within one text, there's multiple ways of recitation, which give more meaning. Then we also see that the Quran is a miracle in it's about in its news, how that many prophecies are mentioned, which came to be true. later on. Like, for example, when sort of Messiah was revealed. At that time, Abdullah was still alive. Apollo was still alive.

00:54:11--> 00:54:57

But later on, he died and that prophecy was fulfilled. Likewise, we see that the Romans are mentioned what do you what is room and over there also, there is a prophecy, that very soon, things will change. And that's exactly what happened. Then there is some descriptions of unknown matters. Like, for example, the growth of a child in the womb of the mother. And that was only found to be true in the sense that people saw it much, much later. Right? rainclouds, for us, it's very normal, because we studied it since childhood. All right. But imagine people 1400 years ago, when they heard that it was a matter of the unseen for them, but the Koran spoke about the Quran described it. So

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

those scientific miracles of the Quran are

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

So, then also the Quran is a miracle in the way that it affects the hearts in the way that it has an effect on the hearts of people.

00:55:08--> 00:55:22

One of the people from Makkah, he came to Medina to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to speak to him about a certain matter. And he was standing outside the masjid the Prophet Solomon was leading the companions in my lips, Allah, and the Prophet sort of Allison recited a little tool.

00:55:24--> 00:56:03

And when he recited sort of a tool, that man he said that I felt as though my heart would just split apart, would just rupture. Because recitation those verses, it's such a powerful effect on him. So the Quran his message and miracle in many ways, both in one inshallah, in our next class will be learned about the factors that contradict him and we'll put up and how the Quran is or how the books are disrespected, because that is also something that we have to refrain from. So panicle law will be handed to a la ilaha illa into the stockbroker will have to work a certain way.
