Eman balcatta belief in the scriptures the books that Allah subhana wa tada has revealed today inshallah we'll begin from factors that contradict Eman balcatta. Meaning what are those things which if a person does says or believes in, that will negate his Eman in the books of Allah subhanaw taala First of all, go for and the clip, outright denial and refutation of the books. The clip is basically to call something a lie. So saying that Allah never sent any book, these books are not true, they are not from Allah. All of this is part of Cofer and that leap. So when a person does go further into cleave of the books of Allah, then that is not a man, that is not faith, in sort of
bacala i a 39, Allah says one Latina cafaro, what can be a Latina Ola ecos herban? What are the Ayat of Allah?
What are the if the verses which Allah has revealed? And where are the verses, in the books in the Scriptures, so those who first of all recover? So they say, We don't believe in this. And secondly, they do take leave, meaning they call the books a lie, that they're just fabrications of people, God never sent any scripture, those people who say these things, who do these things, who will they be, let us have now, they will be the inmates of the fire. Then secondly, the leaf, what does the leaf mean?
To change to alter? So the leaf of the books changing the books, whether it is changing their words, or like for example, removing certain words or slightly changing the spellings so that the meaning becomes different, removing parts of it, adding parts to it. The brief is basically such alteration of the book, that the book doesn't remain the same, the book no longer remains as Allah had revealed it. And we know that the people of the book they changed the book in many ways, by removing parts of it by adding parts to it by changing the texture of it, whether it is in words or in meaning. So the half of the books also, this is something that contradicts Eman been quoted. Because a man will go
to what does that require from a person that a person changes himself and not the book, not the text, but if a person does not want to change himself, and instead he changes the book, so that he can appear to be a righteous person, then that is this belief of the book. Imagine requires a Mariner. Well, Alterna but what did the huzzah Mariner were assigned?
And in order to do that, they used the heat they change the book
in certain Isa 46 Allah says Minh and Medina Hara Do you have the final Kadima? armillary they changed the words from their proper places. And at the end of the aisle well actually learner Humala who be carefree him. Allah has cursed them because of their disbelief. Then thirdly, Arab, what is Arab durning away a version, not paying attention to the book of Allah, not giving it any importance. Because the messengers when they brought the books, there were some people who listened. And there were others who didn't pay any attention. They listened but they ignored they turned away in total, and am I a 157 from an amendment can never be a Atilla he was sort of an her, then who is
more unjust than the one who denies the verses of Allah and turns away from them, denies them and turns away from them. They're not worth reading, they're not worth understanding. They're not worth believing, don't waste your time on this do something different instead, this is airdog. So this is also kind of goofy, right? Because the thing is that if a person will pay attention to the book, he will at least bother to listen, he will bother to find out only then he can believe. But if a person does not even look into the book, How can he have
you understand? How can he have email Eman is a result of paying attention to the book.
And I'm not saying that this definitely means that every person has to study the book. Know what this means is a person at least finds out okay, God sent a book Okay, there's an okay I don't understand all of it. I don't know all of it. But I believe in the fact that it is from Allah.
Correct. This is the minimum level. And if a person doesn't even bother to find out, if Allah ever sent a book, what is that book, then this is a kind of Arab, then referring to something other than the book of Allah for the purposes of judgment, Allah sent the book so that it is followed. And if a person learns of the commands of Allah, and he doesn't use them doesn't benefit from them, instead, he refers to something else for the purposes of judgment. Then this is also a kind of copper inserted into i 44, we learn women lemmya combi ma Angela Allah for Allah ecoman caffi rune, whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, then it is those who are the disbelievers. So leaving the
book for something else, likewise, claiming their absolute abrogation, saying that the books are now abrogated in the sense that they're not applicable anymore. They're not to be followed. They're just to be believed in. I there are many people who say, it's not possible to follow the Quran today. So we just believe in the fact that God sent His Word through His Prophet, okay, but it doesn't have anything to do with our lives. We don't need to study it, we don't need to implement it, we just believe in it. And unfortunately, this is the attitude of many people.
Then claiming them to be incomplete, claiming that the book of Allah is incomplete, meaning it is not perfect. So it cannot be a source of guidance that this book was sent 1400 years ago, and it's irrelevant today. It doesn't teach us about what we're supposed to do today. So it's incomplete. It's not a source of guidance. Likewise, competing with the book of Allah, how producing something that according to a person is better than the Quran better than the book of Allah, challenging the book of Allah, challenging its information, challenging the news that the Quran gives. All of these are basically those things that contradict Eman balcatta, because essentially, belief in the books
means that a person accepts the book as it is, and he does what is asked of him. And if a person denies it turns away from it pays attention to something else as the book is irrelevant than all of this contradicts Amanda. And
then there was also the fitna of Hong Kong caught on to believe that the Quran is the creation of Allah, and not the word of Allah. And like I mentioned to you earlier, there was a time when this belief was very common amongst the Muslims. And in fact, it was enforced upon the Muslims also.
Have you ever thought what's the big deal?
What's the big deal if some people say the Quran is the creation and not the word of Allah? What implication does this belief have? Okay? Okay, so the Quran is the spoken word of Allah, and we are the creation of Allah. The Quran is perfect, and we are imperfect. There's two problems basically with this belief to say that the Quran is created. There's two problems. First of all, there's denial of Allah's attributes, because there were people who did that lead, what is that lead?
He should know it by now. There are please do abandon right to say that Allah does not possess this attribute. So this that God cannot speak, because in order to speak, you need a tongue, you need a mouth, and you need a voice box, and you need teeth and you need all of this. And if we say that God speaks, then we are resembling him to creation, and we should not resemble him to creation. This is why we say that God does not speak. But what about so many places in the Quran where Allah says, work Allah, Allah.
Allah said, Allah spoke, they said, Oh, that's just to be understood. In a metaphorical sense. It's not to be taken in the literal sense. It just means that God communicated you don't say that Allah spoke. But the fact is that the evidences are so many in the Quran and Sunnah tell us that Allah subhana wa tada speaks, and just because he speaks, it does not mean that we are resembling him to his creation. Remember, when we studied about Allah's names and attributes, we learned that we have to go the middle path, we affirm the attributes that he has informed us off, how without resembling them to the attributes of the creation. This is just like Allah has knowledge, right? And people
have knowledge, but is there any resemblance between the knowledge of Allah and the knowledge of people know, likewise, Allah subhanaw taala he possesses wisdom? People have wisdom, but is there any resemblance not at all? So likewise, Allah soprano
Target speaks, people speak but is there any resemblance? There's a huge difference. All right. So to say that the Quran is created is a result of denying Allah attributes, you understand? So when we say that no Koran is Allah, Allah, why because Allah called color intro Toba? What do we learn, had the Esma canavalia until he hears the word of Allah, the speech of Allah, you understand? And in the Quran also, Allah says about musar listen and that what can llama la moussaka crema, Allah spoke to Musa so the way the revelation that Allah sent, like, for example, the Quran that Allah gave to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, what is that? It is his canal, not his creation. Secondly, the other
problem with this belief, the Quran is creation is denial of origins, authority. First of all, denial of Allah's attributes, and secondly, denial of current authority.
Because when something is created, then its rank is much less, you understand? It's not that sacred anymore. It can be changed. It can be left, it can be forgotten, you understand.
But if it's the word of Allah, then it has to be shown respect, that we cannot change it. It's absolute in its authority in the sense that it will be applicable, no matter when and where you are, it's always going to be relevant. So when they said that the Quran is creation? What was that implying? That you don't have to always refer to the on?
What's the big deal? I mean, you can refer to the philosophers and their logic and their explanations. If something is mentioned in the Quran, it's not a big deal, you can always refer to something else, it could be proven false, it could be wrong. But the fact is that when the Quran is Allah word, then it will always have authority. So to say that the Quran is creation, this is confirm
what is it go for, because it means not just disrespecting the Quran, but it is also cover of allas attributes, we have to realize that there is a limit to our knowledge. And wherever we reach that limit, we have to stop and look for answers something else we have to accept it. That is where a man comes in. There were also a last panel that has a message. All right, and allows word allez message canal, it doesn't mean that we can change it, we can alter it. There are scholars who said that there will always remain an original copy of the books of Allah, whether it is the Quran or the Torah, or the Indian people may not know it, people may not find it in front of them, but it's
always there. A long arm.
As long as it's a correct interpretation. it's acceptable. But because remember that one I can have many interpretations, but interpreting in a way that Allah subhanaw taala did not mean that is incorrect, according to their desires, that is all because remember that it was lovely as well as modern UI. Then the desecration, often dishonouring the code of meaning, humiliating the books of Allah, not giving them the due respect, though even even this rule little to no one who said in Columbo a Devon, you have boo, I knew the other boo who was in adebola. He and
every individual that deserves respect, loves that he is treated with due respect. Every being that deserves respect. Like for example, a parent, an elder, what do they love, that they're disrespected? That they are given their due respect? And indeed the respect for Allah is the Quran? What does that mean? That you show respect to Allah? How? By showing respect to the Quran, the Book of Allah,
which means that a person's relationship with the Quran, that is a manifestation of his relationship with his Lord, if he gives attention to the Quran, then in reality, who is he giving attention to Allah? And if he is forgetting, ignoring the Quran, putting it behind his back, then who is he ignoring in his life? Allah, your treatment with the book of Allah shows how you are with Allah subhanaw taala This is why it is necessary for a believer that he must show respect to the Quran. Now what is it that contradicts respecting the book of Allah? First of all, not
Giving the due rate of its recitation and listening. There is a particular adage of reciting the Quran and a particular other bar listening to the Quran when it comes to reciting the Quran, what's the proper etiquette intergral bokhara i 121 and Latina Latina who will kita by Luna who Hakata watty. They recited as it should be recited correctly, correctly citation. And this means it is necessary to learn how to recite the Quran properly. Because if a person does not pay attention to this, then what is he disrespecting the work of Allah. Likewise, not giving the due right of listening to the Quran? What's the etiquette of listening to the Quran? quietly, and paying
attention inserted above 204 what either por el Khurana festa merula who were unsullied to learn lecanto hamoed. Listen attentively, and be silent, be silent, which means that if a person is talking when the Quran is recited, he is not listening. He's not paying attention, then is that respecting the vocal of law? What is that? This respecting the book of Allah? And if it's disrespecting the Koran? What does that mean? that a person is disrespecting, who? Unless
Just think about it, if you're talking to someone, if you're talking and somebody else starts talking at the same time with somebody else, loudly, so that you can hardly be heard. Would you say that that is disrespect. Of course, that is a height of disrespect. So why is it that when the Koran is being recited, we think it's okay to carry on with our conversations, it's necessary that we pay attention, and if we need to speak, then we can go elsewhere. Or we can, if the Quran is being played on a CD or something, then pause that.
Because it is not appropriate that a person starts his own conversation and he's going on and on and on, while the Quran is being recited.
Then using the book of Allah for worldly gain, this is also great disrespect towards the Quran. If you think about it,
a means that is adopted to reach a particular goal.
Like, for example, a person is spending money in order to get a degree. So let's say they've spent $10,000 on getting that degree, why are they spending $10,000 because the degree that they're going to get at the end, and the work that they'll be able to do is going to bring them more than $10,000 correct, because if it was not like that, then that degree was not worth it, you understand. So, the means is always lesser than the goal, you understand, the means will always be cheaper, lesser in value,
compared to the goal, the objective. So what is better the Quran or the benefits of this world? What is better what is more valuable? The Quran or the benefits of this world? The Quran is more valuable, right? Because it is the column of Allah.
So if a person needs has these two, before him, the Quran and the world, what should be the means and what should be the goal? The world should be the means and the Quran should be the goal. Because if the Quran is your goal, then what do you get? Jana? You understand? But if a person is doing the opposite, he's using the Koran to make worldly benefits to earn worldly benefits than is he respecting the Quran? Is he giving the due respect of the Quran? Not at all. In total Baccarat is 79 for whaler, Linda Dina cubanelle kitabi ad him so my Oppo Luna hair domineering delay, Leah sharabi feminine Padilla, the hood the author The Book of Allah, they changed it Why? So that they could get
feminine kalila Apache price what was that Betty price, worldly gain. They use the book to make benefits of this world. In a hadith which is in a similar to Sahara, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said there are normal and learn the Quran was a De La Habra. heljan and buy it. ask Allah for Jinnah. Learn the Quran, read it, understand it, implement it. Why? Because you want to get to Jenna.
So, you're putting the things in their proper places. You're using the dunya to understand the Quran. You're going to
To implement the Quran and inshallah, what are you going to get in result? Jenna, that's the correct order. And he said learn before some others who will learn the Quran but will demand worldly benefits in exchange.
They will study the Quran, why? To make donia they will serve the Quran. Why? In order to make money that's their main purpose. That's their main goal. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said for indeed there are three people who learn the Quran. First of all, hello, Julian, you bear Hebei, a man who shows off by the
he learns the Quran. Why? In order to show off in order to impress people, it's a performance. It's a performance before others. He's learned how to recite properly so that he can recite before others and perform.
He can speak about the Quran, code verse after verse Why? To perform before others you bet he shows off? Secondly, what did you learn? Yes, that could be a man who eats through a meeting, the main goal of studying the Quran is what? To make money, that then I'll be able to recite it, I'll be able to teach it to children, and then I'll make money. And thirdly, what did you learn here?
And a man who reads it for the sake of Allah.
Now ask yourself, why are we studying? Is it just so that we can impress others? We can have another thing written in our credentials? on our resume? Is it so that we can teach and make more money? Is it for the purpose of worldly gain? Or is it for the sake of Allah? What should it be? We always need to ask ourselves every single day and the people who are studying the Quran teaching the Quran need to question themselves really every single day. Why am I doing this?
Because it's a very, it's a very dangerous position in the sense that if a person's intention is wrong,
if a person's intention is not right, then the Quran will be an argument against him. If the objective of studying of teaching of helping others learn is just to show off, just to make money.
This is very, very dangerous. The main objective should be to read it for the sake of Allah. In another Hadith, in associate also he had the Prophet sallallahu Sallam jabber, even Abdullah, he said that once the prophets are lots of them came out and we were reciting the Quran. And amongst us were Arabs and non Arabs. So imagine their Arabs were reciting the Quran and non Arabs were reciting the Quran. So you can imagine some people they're reciting perfectly, beautifully. And others they're struggling with their recitation. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, recite it through all of you read keep reading, for Colin Hasson for all our reciting good. All of you are reciting
correctly. So what if one person despite his effort, he's not able to take the perfect hair and blood out? is as close to it as you can get good enough and hamdulillah? It's clear that he's not saying her he's saying how you understand, he said, All of you are reciting correctly or reciting good. Soon a people will come who will attach so much importance to its correctness and perfection, like arrows are strengthened. Meaning their entire focus will be on what perfecting the recitation
just like arrows are straightened. You know, like arrows are straightened. Because you can imagine if there is a stick, there will also be some splinters. So removing those splinters, even straightening the arrows. This is how much some people will focus on perfecting their recitation, which is why if somebody is a non error immediately, they will say, Oh, no, you can't do it. You You can't read the Quran properly. You can't use the Quran. You can't do it because you're a non Arab.
Their entire focus will be on perfecting the recitation, but they will hasten its reward in this world and not defer to the hereafter. Meaning all of this perfection is for what
whether it is that they will be able to impress others or it is that because their recitation is the most perfect, so they should be hired for a certain position and they should be making more money. They will not defer its reward to the hereafter. This Hardys does not mean that a person should not focus on perfecting their
addition that is very important, recitation should be perfected. However, the purpose of that is not to make the NEA is not to impress others
the purpose of that should be to earn reward in the hereafter. Then part of disrespecting the Quran is also mocking at the Quran, making fun of the book of Allah in toto jatiya i&i in what? Early moment Ayah Tina Shea and it was a una ecohome Addabbo, marine. When he finds out something about our if he takes him into ridiculed meaning he makes fun of them for such people. There's a humiliating punishment by questions for the double winner and about the moon to clean the hypocrites. That is it only Allah and His Messenger his is that you could find to make fun of.
You couldn't find anything else to play with to have fun with. So making fun of the book of Allah. mocking at the Quran is also great disrespect to the Quran. Then, part of disrespecting the Quran is disrespecting the most half. What is the most half the actual keytab that is in front of you the book because many people say Quran in the hearts meaning the Quran was given to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam orally there was no book physical book that was given. So if someone writes down the Quran somewhere that is not actually Quran, and it's not really necessary to show respect to it. But the fact is, that the Quran Yes, it was given to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam orally, but where
is it preserved in the hearts and also in the serve also in the scrolls on paper? And that paper must also be shown respect. Why? Where do we learn this from? For many evidences. First of all, we see that in a hadith in Bukhari, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he forbade the people to travel to a hostile country carrying copies of the Quran. Hostile Why?
Because of the Quran falls in the hands of those people who hate Islam, what are they going to do? What are they going to do? They're going to disrespected. So this is why the prophets Allison did not allow the companions to carry physical copies of the Quran to hostile lands.
So we chose that part of respecting the Quran is also respecting the physical copy the Messiah. Secondly, there's another evidence that we learn off.
Do you remember the incident where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked that the toa be brought to him?
And he had the people read to him, the punishment for Xena that is in the Torah. So what happened the man by the name of God who was reading and he put his finger? Correct, he covered it. And he was told to move his hand and then read, you know, where the Torah was placed. It was placed on a pillow, not on the floor.
Even though that was not the original color. It had very changes in it from the original one, a lot of grief. But still the Prophet sallallahu Sallam respected that manuscript How? By placing it on a pillow not on the floor.
So how can we think that the Quran which is unaltered, original unchained can be placed on the floor?
Can it be no.
And please never use as evidence, the fact that in the house, in Makkah, in Medina, people put the most half on the floor, so we cannot put it on the floor. No, we cannot do that. If the prophets are placed on a pillow, then we should also not place the Quran on the floor. Because putting the Quran on the floor is disrespecting it, it should be placed on a high place. And if you even have a bag or something, put it on top of that, don't put it on the floor. Likewise, part of respecting the most half is that if you have a pile of books, then don't place the Quran at the bottom and other books on top. The Quran should always be on top. Right? Likewise, part of respecting the Quran is
respecting the book of Allah is that it is guide with respect. It is handled with respect. Because when we start studying the Quran, we treat the Quran as a textbook. And what do we do? We put it roughly we pick it up roughly, we pass it on roughly. Sometimes it drops also. And we have no feeling of guilt remorse in our hearts.
It should be handled with respect. Because you see in the Quran, what does Allah say? Who Duma dynaco will hold it with strength and yes, that means in the intangible sense, but also in the tangible sense that hold it with
As long as the application is off, okay, and it's not appearing on the screen, it's okay. Because you also have Quran in your heart. Alright? And you go to the washroom, you understand. So likewise if you have it on your phone, or on some device, but if you turn it off, you understand like it's not appearing on the screen, then that is fine.
Okay, so for example, if you're writing the Quran, let's say on your notes on a piece of paper, and I quickly or a part of an ayah, sometimes you're given the homework, right? This is on a piece of paper and put it up where you can see it. And what happens after some time you have to replace it. So how do you dispose of it? How do you do that? The main thing is that you have to destroy it in a way that it's not readable anymore, you understand. So whether it is taking scissors and cutting it or shredding it, burning it in the old times, because the ink was such that if water fell on it, it would wash off, people would wash it off. So whatever means that you can adopt just don't put it in
the recycling like that.
Now, part of respecting the Quran is also handling it with respect with care. And that means that a person should also be clean. So for example, sometimes our hands are greasy, they have food on them, they're not super clean, and we're handling the Quran. And what happens is dirty fingertips, okay, marks left on the paper left on the must have. Sometimes if you go to massage it and you pick up a car, and it smells,
it smells, why.
Because we are not clean. We're not clean people. We don't clean our books, we don't clean our hands. So this kind of cleanliness is necessary. It's part of respecting the Quran. And even though in the text of the Quran, and Sunnah, there is no clear evidence that says that having will do is mandatory, there are scholars who say that it's necessary to have will do when touching the Quran. But the verses that they use are actually referring to the angels because the mobile Haruna who the angels, not human beings, but from this, scholars have said that it shows that we should also be as clean as possible when handling the Quran. So it's best to have will do its best to be in the state
of bahara. Likewise, if a woman is menstruating, we learned that her hand is clean, which is why our children are and I was told that your head your hand does not have menstruation on it. Your hand is clean, you can handle such things. But if you are handling the Quran, and you feel that I'm not in the state of Florida, then you can have a barrier between your hand and the most have, you can touch only the edges the sides, even though technically, it is permissible to touch it directly, according to many scholars, but respecting it would be what let you avoid touching it directly. Other requires that you are as proper as possible.
Like for example, you see there's some things which are absolute rules, like you have to follow them.
And others are not really rules. But the respect. That is do it demands from you that you observe those things? Like for example, you're going to somebody's house. Nobody ever said you can't go to somebody's house wearing pajamas.
Right? Is that a rule somewhere anywhere written any constitution in any family law? Nowhere. But if you go to somebody's house wearing pajamas, that is what this respect to them, right? But I'm calling you for this dinner, I've laid the table in such a fancy way. And here you come in your pajamas, that is disrespecting the host.
As long as the writing that you put in the Quran is good. And in the sense that it is relevant. It is permissible. So for example, when you are writing your notes in your juice, one is that you start doodling Okay, in a way that your doodles are also coming on the text of the
right, or they look so evil, that they don't go with the eye out of mercy. Understand,
or let's say a person is writing their notes and they start writing on the Arabic That is not correct. Okay. Or they're writing their notes in a way that you can't tell between what is the Quran and what is the notes. You understand. Likewise, within the notes are also in our messages that people are writing to one another, to the person sitting next to them instead of taking the sticky note and passing an important message on that. What is the person who writes it on the Quran? That is disrespect.
Okay, right in the Quran beautifully. In the best way in the most clear way in the most respectful way.
It's fine as long as you are able to open up the Quran after putting a fancy cover
No, you don't have to feel guilty, you don't have to feel guilty that your Quran doesn't have any fancy cover on it. If you think that it would be better to put a cover just because you're using the Quran so much, then you might as well put a cover, but it's not necessary.
Depending on the book, if a book has only hold on, then it should be placed on top if a book has caught on and translation, then it should be placed under the Quran. All right.
Then if you have another which has put on translation and your notes, then it should be at the bottom. The more Quran, the more adept do is default.
It's not necessary. If it's just a spontaneous reaction, you drop the Quran and you immediately pick it up, put it in, you know, with your heart and you kiss it and you do a snowfall. It's a natural reaction. It's okay, but it's not necessary. Okay, people show respect. And they show their apology in different ways.
To Zach, hello, Hayden, that's a very important point that, you know, when we're using the Quran, we're reading the Quran, we don't flip the pages with respect, it's necessary that the pages are flipped with respect, because the more gentle you will be in handling the book, the longer it will last, the better condition, it will be no problem, you can highlight there's no harm.
See, if you are just going to open the must have to check an eye to check a word to find one particular you know eye or something, no harm, you quickly open it, you don't have to have hijab on. But if you're going to recite a page, two pages, half pages, then it's better that you have your hijab on
it's too loud. The manner in which we flip the pages sometimes it's so loud, that the person who's speaking, their voice is completely drowned.
And also, how do we close the Quran?
How do we close the Quran sometimes we just
slip it shut so fast so quickly. So it's necessary that we pay attention to this.
Like I mentioned earlier, we're just going to open it quickly and read something of it, then no harm, but if you are going to recite, then it's better that you cover
then Hulu in the Quran. What is Hulu?
What is Hulu? To be excessive in showing respect or in exalting the status of someone? So Hulu in the matter of the Quran is something that is not permissible.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said equal and will actually be well at the stick there will be
recite the Quran and do not make it a means of eating, meaning to not make it a means of making money,
nor increasing your wealth through it. So does it mean that no person can charge another for teaching them how to recite the Quran?
Does it mean that you should not be charged any fees over here? Because you're coming to tell you the answer
that from the to Gold's doing it for the sake of a loss of panel data. And secondly, making money through it. What should be more dominant?
What should be more dominant for the sake of a muscle? Which is why if there is a student, let's say who comes to a teacher, and says I really want to study the Quran, and the student says that I cannot afford, I cannot give you the fees at all. And the teachers sees there's a genuine reason over here, the student cannot come up with it at all, then in that case, the teacher should not say no, if you can't pay the fees, then I can't teach you. You're not allowed to come here.
Because it's the matter of the Koran.
You understand, this is why doors should always be open to people who want to come and study the Quran, even though they're not paying for it. And the person is charged for it. That is for what reason, because it's not just the Quran that is taught here, right? There's so many other things that are going on, like, for example, to sitting in this classroom, with the heating, and the lighting, and the furniture, and the new carpet and everything. These are all expenses that have to be borne so that you can be taught to
write, if it was a money making thing, then you know how much fees people are charged to earn worldly education for one course, how much do you have to pay?
Sometimes in 1000s, literally, right? annual fees goes in 1000s and 1000s. But over here, 100 a lot. This is not a money making thing. And this is a reason why the fees are reasonable. But unfortunately, sometimes we complain about that also, that this is too much. But if you think about it, this is not a money making thing. If it was then the fees would be much, much more. All right. So you
Also in the future, if you are teaching a child, how to recite the Quran, helping a sister out, you know how to recite the Quran to know the meaning of the Quran, then if you're charging them any money, remember that should not be the primary focus.
Because you see what is forbidden over here, while at the stuck the robot do not seek more through it, that you have enough income. But still you say, my goal is to make sure that I teach down children so that I can make $2,000 every month, which goes into my savings, so that I can keep increasing my money. You have enough money, Allah has blessed you with your needs are being fulfilled, then don't teach the Quran for the purpose of making money.
You understand? It should not be a money making business. It should not be a money making business with which a person is increasing his wealth. The goal should be to teach the children to earn the pleasure of Allah because the Quran has come Why so that it is acted upon? And if a person uses the Quran to make money, then will he benefit from the Quran? No. Like there's so many people out there and we have come across such people who teach certain subjects certain courses. Why? This because they need a job.
They don't love what they do. They don't enjoy it at all. They're just teaching to make money. Correct. Which is why whatever they're teaching has nothing to do with their personal lives. But the Quran has everything to do with our personal lives. This is why it should not just be a money making thing. The goal should be to attain the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said nor become hard hearted with regards to it. What is being hard hearted with regard to the Quran, the person is not affected by it. His heart doesn't humble doesn't soften. He doesn't take any advice. He doesn't take any lesson. It's just a text.
The meaning is this, the way of recitation is this, the evidence is this is just dry knowledge and what is being done with it. More money is being made. And he said do not do Hulu in it Do not be excessive in regards to it. What is little in the Quran being excessive with regard to the Quran. So for example, respecting the Quran, Is that necessary? Yes. But some people did that respect to the level of Hulu. So they say you cannot even touch the Quran if you don't have to. You can't even touch the Quran. You can't recite the Quran if you're in the state of hope. So whole week, 10 days you cannot reset the clock not even certain work before you go to sleep from memory. You can't do
that because you are not clean. This is Hulu with regard to the clock. Likewise, such Iran such respect that prevents a person from reading the Quran from benefiting from the Quran, it should be avoided. Being extremist, okay, in any matter is something that is dangerous.
And even when dealing with the Quran, this whole loop should be avoided, recited, learned respected. However do it in the way that the prophets are taught.
Don't think that if you will respect it more, you'll get more reward.
Then geniale with the Quran, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said do not argue through the Quran nor deny parts of it with other parts. What does that mean?
taking one verse from here and using that to negate another verse.
Okay, bringing verses against one another. This has to do with the Quran. Do not argue with the Quran, nor deny parts of it with other parts by Allah. If the believer argues to the Quran, he will be overcome. And if the hypocrite argues with the Quran, through the Quran, then he will overcome. What does it mean? If the believer will argue, using the Quran using Quranic evidences, then he will be overcome meaning he will accept his defeat.
When he is told about a verse in the Quran that he will say, Yes, that is right. And I am wrong.
Like for example, or what a widower who remember he was telling the people do not give too much. And then a woman stood up and she said that, how can you say when the Koran says, if you have given a cutoff, he accepted, he will be overcome, he will accept his defeat. But if a hypocrite argues with the Quran, then what will he do? He will overcome meaning that he will not accept as a defeat. He will bring some evidence from somewhere. He will miss interpret something the story
Something to prove his point. Even in the process, he is negating some of the verses of Allah proving them to be false he will do that. It's just an intellectual mental exercise for him.
Like you know, sometimes there is a debate, right you have to speak in the favor of something or against something. Correct. So in that what do you need proofs and arguments?
Right. So when something that is mentioned in the Quran is being debated over what will the believer do, he will accept as defeat, if there is an evidence of the Quran that goes against his viewpoint, but the hypocrite will not accept he will bring something or the other, even if he's arguing against
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said led to God to focus on for energy data and vehicles. Do not argue through the Quran for indeed jodel in the Quran is Cofer. Quran is not just a collection of evidences and arguments and proofs, what is it? It is canal of Allah
then incorrect interpretation of the Quran. Even that is great disrespect to the Quran the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the destruction of my own mind will be in the book of Allah and milk.
The destruction of my oma will be through what the book of Allah and milk the people said, O Messenger of Allah what book and milk. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said they will learn the Quran, but will interpret it in a way that Allah the Exalted did not reveal it as they will misinterpret the bulk of it. And as a result, what will happen,
what will happen, they will be destroyed, they will go astray. And they will love milk, natural food so much that they will leave congregational prayers and Friday prayers and move to the countryside.
Because they will want to some people, they will want to eat the purest food,
the best food they will want to make most money have a good life. So what will they do? They will move away from places where there are massages right? Because the place where they want to go to to make more money that is far from the muscle, there is no mustard over there. And as a result, what will happen, they will not pray in JAMA they won't be able to make it for Juma prayers even. And we see this that people for the sake of money, what do they do? They move right elsewhere and they don't take into consideration. Is there a Masjid nearby? Where will I go to pyjama? Where will I go to Paris? A lot of drama. Likewise, people move far from the city sometimes Why? So that they can
have better bigger houses have bigger locks. They have more privacy, especially in the countryside. But what's the harm? No Masjid. It's an hour away. Who's going to go there every day? Who can go there even once a week? When will the children go? No. So as a result when they move far away from the masjid from the congregation, what will happen? their state will deteriorate their faith. And this is what we see that many Muslims who live in such areas where there's no mustard nearby, no Islamic Center nearby. Their children don't know how to recite the Quran.
Right? They don't know how to recite the Quran. They don't know how to pray.
Because they never went to a Masjid when they were young why there was no Masjid nearby.
So, it happens with many people. And there are people who have to move for worldly reasons. But then what happens wherever they go, they establish a Masjid over there. They establish an Islamic Institute over there.
Then the matter of hygiene abandoning the Quran in South Africa 30 Wakanda rasuluh era be in a cometa who has the Quran Mr. Juba, the prophet will complain on the day of gentlemen that my people have taken this Quran as something abandoned. They have abandoned the Quran. How is the Quran abandoned? It will kill him. He wrote in his book alpha it that will hydrocal Annie Anwar abandoning Quran is of different types. First of all, I heard her leaving hedger summary he will Eman V will is la la. Not listening to the Quran. not believing in the Quran, not paying attention to the Quran. This is one kind of abandoning the Quran. People who don't believe in it, don't listen to it don't
pay any attention to it. Secondly, it'll actually be
abandoning Iman according to the Quran meaning not acting according to the Quran. A person knows what the Quran says. But he doesn't apply it while we're over in the halali. Army and not applying a tailor and hollow meaning not following that. We're in Cora Who am an OB, even if he reads it and believes in it. So there are some people who don't believe at all There are others who believe but what do they do? They don't act on it. That is also a kind of abandoning the Quran. Thirdly, hydrocracking
What the How can a lady not referring to it for judgment, rather referring to others for judgment, that there is a matter in which a person is confused? Should I do this? Should I do that what should be done? Then he finds out there's a ruling concerning this matter from the Quran in the Quran. He says no, no, can't do that. How to find some other decision. So he refers to someone else. And believing that later you feel your thing that the Quran does not give you a clean.
Fourthly, How'd you do that? The Buddha he was the homie abandoning reflecting on the Quran, and pondering on it. So a person believes it. he recites it, but he doesn't reflect on the Quran doesn't know its meaning at all. This is also a kind of
fifth module is this fat, abandoning it with respect to seeking healing, so he does not seek healing with the Quran. Instead, he refers to something else for healing. There's a headache. Instead of reciting Soto Fatiha a Shiva
an odd number of times, blowing it on one's hands and passing it over the head. What does a person do? Let me just take a little
quick relief. This is also abandoning the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala revealed the Quran for guidance and also for healing. And if we're not using it for healing, what are we doing abandoning the Quran?
Recently, my husband was traveling and my son fell ill. And the temperatures outside were in minus 20 minus 30. A lot of snow extremely cold. And there was no way that I could even go anywhere, or I could ask somebody to come and I didn't have dialogue at home. And he had such high fever. I'm like, What am I supposed to do? And like, why am I thinking about Tylenol right now.
So what if I don't have it? A lot of panel data has given the plan for healing.
And trust me, and in that situation, the way I read the Quran for his healing, I don't think I've ever done it before.
And then handed Allah really he got better. And handed in that every time I recited the Quran, I recited the drawers for his treatment, he got better and
the Tylenol came two days late.
And Hamdulillah, by then he was much better.
So the thing is that our faith is weak.
Whenever we get ill, whenever we need a cure solution to something, we don't think about the Quran, this is part of abandoning the Quran.
So this is kind of
abandoning the Quran, even as a little bit our own who said, Indeed, the smallest of all houses,
meaning void of any blessing is that in which there is nothing from the book of Allah,
the smallest of all houses. And bait is not just referring to the house in which you live, anyplace, whether it's the heart of a person,
or a house where he lives, the smallest place is what that in which there is no.
So if a person knows about many things, movies and the weather and science and history, but he doesn't know to put others no clothes on in his heart, that's the smallest heart that's the smallest mind doesn't have any blessing in it, nowhere in it.
Likewise, if there is a house in which there is no quote on how the first of all, there's normals have normals, and unfortunately we become like that. We don't like to keep hard copies of the Quran anymore because I have it on my iPad.
If you have a hard copy, then you have to take care of it. You have to keep it on a shelf, you know, I can't be bothered, I'll just keep it on my iPad.
And also that the Quran is not recited there. The recitation of the Quran is limited to the masjid the classroom. But there is no recitation of the Quran that can be heard in the morning, in the afternoon in the evening in the night. So the house in which Iran is not recited, that is the smallest house void of any blessing. So check yourself How much is it that we recite the Quran?
In our houses in our daily lives? We do read the Quran for the purposes of our lessons but what about for the purpose of blessing for the purpose of earning reward?
And you see the Prophet sallallahu Sallam encourage people to perform prayers in their houses also. Right? Why? Because the house in which one is not performed, that's like a graveyard.
And likewise, a house in which the Quran is not recited and what kind of a house is that?
So we really need to check how much Quran is heard in our house. I'm not saying heard from
From a speaker, but heard from the mouth of a person in the morning in the afternoon in the evening, how much could undo our children hear our siblings? How much should they hear our elders? How much do they listen to it? How much do they read it? Because the more the Quran is in a house, the more vast it is, the more blessed it is.
inshallah, we'll conclude over here and you have something that you're going to get in your groups.
What is that
your tests and some of you are not going to get your assignments back because I love them too much so I decided to keep them and others are going to get it back.
