Okay, let's continue our lesson
number 203. What you then left at the end if and when you are Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do not bring them an ayah when you do not bring them a verse, when you do not bring them assign a miracle corner they said, No legislator, why have you not contrived it? Why did you not bring it to yourself? Why can't you just make it up yourself?
We learned from many eyes in the Quran, that the people of Mecca, they would demand miracles from the Prophet site alone, if
they would ask him to such and such miracle, then we will believe in you. And if you don't show these miracles, then we're never going to believe in you.
So over here, what he then on 13 b if and when you are prophets, that alone is lm do not bring a miracle to them.
A miracle which they are demanding. How do they say in mockery to you? That's known as the beta? Why don't you just devise it yourself? Why don't you just contrive it yourself?
It's the beta is from the infectious gene bow well,
Gene back well,
and Jeeva is when water collects in a pond, in a water reservoir or a lake or something of the sort. And each the bear is to select something.
It is basically to collect something for the purpose of selection.
So known as debate the hell Why have you not selected one yourself? Why have you not chosen one yourself? Why can you not contrive it yourself?
What does it mean by this in the context but low notes debater?
That, why don't you just produce it yourself? If you're supposed to be the Prophet of Allah, if you're supposed to lead a messenger?
If you're supposed to be delivering the word of a lot to us, then how can you cannot show a miracle to us by yourself? Because every time they demanded a miracle, the prophets are allowed, someone would respond, saying that the miracle comes only from Allah.
So they would say, then why don't you just show it to yourself? If Allah is not sending it, then just show it yourself? Make it up yourself?
Or if you're the messenger, then how come you cannot demand it from Allah.
See, meaning say this to them. That intimate in Vietnam, but a taboo I followed. Indeed, I only follow my you Hi, Elaine, what is revealed to me?
Meaning I don't bring a miracle or reverse. Whenever I wish to know is it appropriate for me to make something of my own accord?
I only follow what is revealed to me Never before my daughter,
Heather this before it will never become
this Quran is enlightened enlightenment from your Lord.
This is the miracle that has come to you.
And before it is a total of Buffalo. What does the pharaoh mean? insight.
So this is enlightenment. It makes you see things as they are the plan opens up your eyes, it gives you enlightenment. And it is from your Lord. Wha hoo done and it is also guidance. No mercy for who the only known for people who believe. Meaning it is only the believers who benefit from the Quran, for whom the Quran becomes a source of guidance and mercy.
So what did we learn from you
that the Quran is the miracle that allows the panel data sent that allows the parents are to give to Mohamed Salah moda center. And for the believers, it is a miracle.
Rather, it is the most powerful miracle to them.
You see, the people in every year, they have inclined to supernatural things. They want to see miracles, they want to see the unnatural happen. And only when they see it, then they become very impressed by it and they get very amazed by it. So they demanded similar things from the Prophet of Allah.
But the reality is that the prophets or the lowness of them and other prophets as well, they did not come to this world, to show miracles, to have something like a magic show and to impress people and to amaze them. No, that's not the objective. That's not why the messenger came, the messenger came to guide people.
And if whatever the messenger came with is enough to guide people, then there is no need to send such miracles, which just impress people at that moment and then they forget about it later on.
So this is a miracle. It is a Huda wash, and it's also a guide and a mercy but only for those people who believe
What is up Connie arnoux. And when the Quran is recited, who is being addressed over here on of the believers, that all believers whenever either anytime, whenever, whether it is that a person is reciting to improve is to read, or whether it is on being recited in the center, or anyone who is reciting the Quran, anytime that the Quran is being recited festa niroula, who then listen attentively to it
many times we only pay attention, we only pay attention to listening to the Quran, when it is being recited for us
to understand, if, for example, somebody is reading out to us, or we have played the recitation to listen, only then we will pay attention. But if somebody else is reading the Quran, what do we see that they're reading for themselves?
You know, it's their class that's going on. I'm not a part of that class right now.
But what do we learn? What exactly Oh, come on, whenever the Quran is being recited, whether it is in the sermon in the hood, or it is in a classroom, or it is somebody reciting the Quran or isn't the Sunnah anytime the Quran is recited, then what should you do? Your duty is as a believer, that you must show respect,
not to the person who's reciting, but to what to do, and that is being recited. Listen attentively to the horn.
And scmr has been used is Tamara stremio is from summer, and what the summer mean, to listen. But if demar is to listen, deliberately to listen with attention,
you understand? Because many times when we are, you know, sitting there many sounds, many noises when people are talking, we can hear those sounds, we can hear all that noise. But we're not really listening. When are we listening when we're deliberately listening to something when we're paying attention to a sound that our ears can hear?
So first, Amir, Allah who listen, deliberately, listen with attention.
Well, I'm free to and also remain silent.
Listen attentively, but also remain silent.
I'm free to what's on the roof at noon, flood de nuff in thought,
and in thought, is to remain silent, for the purpose of a steamer
to remain silent. Why, for the purpose of listening attentively.
Because if you don't remain silent when you're listening, then you won't be able to listen.
You won't be able to listen.
Because the other person is talking to the other person is reciting. And you will begin talking at the same time, then who are you going to listen to yourself? Or what the other person is saying?
Or for example, if the other person is talking, and we begin typing, we begin writing, we begin whispering, then isn't that going to divert our attention?
It is so unlikely to remain silent. Refrain from speech, do not talk. Why? So that you can pay attention
so that you can listen with concentration?
And why is it so important? What's the big deal? Why do we have to listen to the Quran with so much attention? That we should actually remain silent at that time? What's the big deal?
Allah says, learn looking to her moon, so that you are blessed with mercy, so that you are showing mercy.
So what does it
if we want Rushmore of Allah? If we want the mercy of Allah, which we are always in need off? But if we want the special Mercy of Allah, then what do we have to do? We have to listen attentively to the recitation of the Quran.
And at the same time, we also have to remain silent, so that we can listen attentively.
Because if we're talking, then we cannot listen attentively.
So from this ayah, we learn about the etiquette to listening to that how we must behave, what etiquette we must observe when the Quran is being recited.
And two commands have been given over here. First Emiru. Listen attentively. Whether it is an audio tape, a CD, it is your iPod, or anything that you're listening to where the Quran is being recited or somebody is reciting the Quran in front of you. It's live recitation, then listen to it carefully.
Why, because when you listen attentively to something, then only can you understand it, then only can you comprehend it
and the Quran is such
That you have to pay attention in order to understand.
It's not an ordinary book, it's not an ordinary kind of, it's not an ordinary speech, that you just listen to it and, or you just read it once and you will understand 100% it doesn't happen like that. You have to pay attention, you have to concentrate. And if you don't concentrate, you will not be able to understand properly.
And what is the purpose behind understanding of property? Because only when you understand property, then you will direct it to yourself, then you will extract lessons for yourself. And if we don't, then how can we extract lessons for ourselves.
And the second command that is given over here is often thought
of remaining silent, refraining from speaking from talking, when the Quran is being recited.
Many times what happens,
we are listening to the Quran, for example, we will play the CD. And we're listening to it. And meanwhile, we are doing some work, perhaps in the kitchen, or perhaps cleaning up the house or doing the laundry or whatever, we're doing our daily chores.
So if you have put the cassette on you, or put the CD on, then make sure that you also remain silent. Not that the Quran is being recited and you pick up the phone and you start talking to somebody. And the Quran is reciting only for the purpose of Baraka. No, that's not the objective.
If you're listening to the Quran, and the phone rings, and you have to answer it, then what should you do? just pause. Don't disrespect the Quran by talking at the same time. But sometimes you go to another extreme. And we say, oh, because we have to talk therefore, we're not going to listen to the Quran.
When if you think of it, what's the big deal if we have to remain silent for 45 minutes? If we have to remain silent for an hour, what's the big deal? I think it's actually beneficial for us that we refrain from idle talk, we refrain from talking uselessly from unimportant things. And we give ourselves a break. So listen to the Quran, build your concentration. And if someone wants to talk to you, and it's extremely important, then pause for a little while, speak and then continue listening, continue to listen to the client.
And his client that is given in this ayah is extremely important.
And we learned that the machine of Makkah, they would behave contrary to what a lot of panels Allah has commanded.
What would they do?
We learned that they would say let the smart rule he hadn't put on don't listen to this call on one fee, and make noise while it is being recited.
make noise so that people are distracted. They don't listen to the Quran, they get distracted.
Because when people listen to the Quran, then they get affected by it. So the machine would not want people to get affected by the Quran. Therefore, they would create noise when the prophets are the loudest and and would be reciting the Quran.
What Quran and remember your Lord, Phoenix ticket within yourself in your heart, how to love one in humidity was written and also in fear. Remember your Lord within yourself in your heart, not just out loud, but also in your heart. Whether it is in the form of drama, or it is the form of a style, through your Lord in your heart. But how should you remember him?
So don't run with humidity, we'll see if I can and also in fear submissively and also in all of you prefer is under veterans for welfare.
What do you know JT and other than loudness? Meaning without being a parent mineral coal in speech without being loud in speech?
What does it mean by this?
Over here, we've been commanded that we should remember our last panel data in different ways.
First of all, silently, secretly in our hearts, in our hearts that nobody else finds out. And we remember the last time that
we're doing wicked, we're praying to a lot we're making God.
At the same time, we should ultimate throughout how we're doing a criminal code without being a parent in speech.
Meaning louder than speaking in secret, but more quiet than speaking out loud.
So in other words, in a tone in a volume that is moderate,
in a volume that is moderate,
one level of talking
In your heart without uttering the words,
another level of talking is what? That you utter the words. But you can say in a whisper tone, or in a very low voice, that the person standing next to you, the person sitting next to you, they can hear you, but they can barely make out the words.
Or only the person sitting next to you only the person standing next to you only they can hear. But the person who is two spaces away from you, they cannot hear.
And then the third level as well. And what is that? When a person is talking out loud?
And when he does that, then everybody can hear him. people in the room and people also outside the room, everyone can hear.
But can we learn from you that when we're remembering the last panel, sorry, we should only remain at the first two levels.
What are those two levels, firstly, in the heart, and secondly, on the tongue, but without being loud in speech,
without yelling, without shouting.
Because when we increase the volume of our voice,
then it enters into the realm of disrespect.
If you say the same words, very loudly, even though the words would be very gentle, very polite, but just because of the tone of voice just because of the loudness of the voice. It sounds very disrespectful. very disrespectful.
Many times you may have experienced that. If you talk loudly in front of children, they become scared into begin to cry.
And it's possible that the uncle or the father or whoever who has come, he's talking to the child, he's trying to make him laugh, but because he's so loud, the child begins to cry because he gets scared.
So when we increase the volume of voice too much, it becomes scary and becomes disrespectful.
So what does Allah say we're doing a Jedi. Remember earlier we learned that one from the companion they were making do out very loudly. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Have mercy on yourself. You're not calling onto someone who is deaf. Allah subhanaw taala is Samir he is Kareem. So you don't need to yell you don't need to shout out but do know jetty middle calm.
And when should you remember a law billable doing in the early morning will fall and also in the early evening
that we'll do is under roof that was laying down well, and it's the Florida of the word of woodland. And we'll do what is that which is between the morning prayer until the sun has completely risen.
So what time is it? The time between fudges. And until the sun has completely risen?
At this time, remember of luck. So what does it mean? That after you have prayed the father's funner don't go back to bed? What should you do?
remember Allah, because Allah subhanaw taala is commanding us to do that.
And we see that the prophets that allowed us on them, he would remember Allah subhanaw taala at this time, as well, there are so many gods so many of them, which we find that he used to recite them, he used to read them in early morning.
For example, that famous Hadith in which the prophet SAW the Lotus and and once after the first one, he returned from the mustard and he visited one of his wives who had been sitting on the prayer mat since I just wanna and she was doing because of the last panel data for that whole time that he was gone. And he came back and he said, I said somebody could three times which are more heavier than all that you have said until now. Which ones are this kind of law he would be handy here and he would have been up see wasn't at the auction, he won't be there to clean it.
So remembering Allah subhanaw taala in the morning, after budget, until the sun has completely risen. This is something that Allah has commanded us to do. And it's also the son of the prophets little bonus.
And this includes reciting the Quran during Easter for making draw just be handled a lot different forms.
One of all and also in the early evenings, alpha is a Florida a free and a free is afternoon or evening.
It is a free is the time after us until the sun has set
the time after us up until the sunset.
So also remember Allah in the evening. So what are we supposed to do at this time?
recite our evening as
well as a call and do not be mean and coffee bean of those who are heedless. Those where he lives a word of the remembrance of the most apparent of you
Don't be out there.
So with the winner,
that a person who does not begin his day with the recover law, and does not end his day with a vicar of a law, then such a person is laughing.
And on the other hand, a person who begins his day and end his day with the dhikr of Allah and such a person is one who remembers Allah, he's not coffee.
So in this side, we learned the various ways of doing this,
without moving the tongue, in the heart, and also by moving the tongue but not too loud.
And we also learned from here about the etiquette of remembering the last panel,
that how should we remember that we should just say, panel was a panel without any feeling, without any fear in the heart without showing any humility? That we should just say, I stuck with a lot of for the last little while. And that's it. No, what do we learn from here? Double Lauren? Well, FIFA, that when you remember of law, then have some humanity, show some humanity.
Show that you need a law. Show that you need his help. Show that you need his mercy. Make yourself small before him.
And at the same time, be in all of him have some fear of Allah in your heart.
And if a person does the vicar of Allah, Praise to Allah with these two feedings, then you will have who Sure, then you will be able to concentrate on what he's seen. Many times we wonder how can we improve who sure in our sauna, this is the way so don't run will have humility, and also have fear of a lot when praying for now when they occur.
And finally, we are told that do not be of those who have are feeding. So who are the who are feeding those who do not remember, at least
those who do not remember all these times those people who sleep through budget, who delay their budget, or after their budget. As soon as they sit down, they go back to bed. This is a sign of off. Yeah. This is a sign of heedlessness.
And especially for men, what is the command that they must pray the father's follow were in the masjid
or at least in congregation.
So what about those men who pray for God in their homes, right before the time was about to expire. And as soon as July is over, they go to bed
to go back to bed.
I mean, think about it, the days that we have to go to work, the days that we have to come to school these days because it is late, we don't sleep after we started getting ready. And we try our best to leave the house as early as possible.
But on the weekends, what is our review
that after we go back to bed,
we can't even stay away for another 15 minutes for another 20 minutes.
And if you can hold yourself at that time, just stay awake for 15 more minutes, do some record of Allah Don't be of those who have are feeling then you won't be able to go back to sleep after that. inshallah.
And the earlier you begin, the more Baraka you will have in your day,
many times we complain about the weekend going by so quickly. Why? Because we set through half for the weekend.
So over here we've been gone let the communal offering Don't be of those who are negligent, don't be those were heedless of.
And if a person is lawful, he's not alert then what's going to happen his enemy chip on will lead him astray.
In the previous if we learned that chip on he continues to put what's what's that in our heart. But it's only those who have the core who realize that it is it was was a function upon
at the beginning of the sorta SoTL era. What did we learned that galbani Adam, lay of the land nakoma shavon or children of Adam Do not let a pond tempt you. Chapin is your enemy
in the who Yakubu Kabira woman Hydra terranova indeed, chiffon sees you he and his tribe, from where you do not see them. And if you become a coffin, then chiffon is going to literally lead you.
And if a person is laughing, then what's going to happen to him he would not be able to use his heart. He will not be able to use his eyes He will not be able to use his ears that Allah has given him. What did we learn about such people? 179 sort of Allah, that one 190 200 aka kilometer genuine loan kuruva liahona BIA What are you gonna label suit on a visa? Well, Donald lay a smart wanna be a winner and on ballroom urban, hula eco Humala, basilone those are the ones who are negligent the ones who are heedless. So a sign of heedlessness is that a person does not remember a lot of birth.
does not do the crapola, especially when he begins the day and when he ends the day. So we all need to check ourselves. We all need to check ourselves that how much do we do alone? They could add these two times. These two times, especially morning and evening.
Dinner dinner a little bigger indeed those people, those beings who are near your Lord, who are these the angels, those who are near your Lord nyasa kuna, and the Rebbe that he they are not prevented by arrogance from his worship. They're not too arrogant to worship Allah, what used to be hoonah who, and they also exalt Him, whatever he has to do, and to him the prostrate.
The angels are not too arrogant to worship Allah. So
then what is our problem? Why is it that we find it so difficult to remember Allah?
What you said before No, and the angels continue to glorify him while we yesterday and they also prostrate to him with Islam with sincerity.
So the angels are not arising from the worship of Allah, even though they're remembering a love day and night.
Over here, we don't at the end of the sort of, in the last time, that the angels, they're not arrogant, when it comes to worshipping the last panel.
And this is the same behavior that we must also adopt
of humanity, showing humbleness when worshipping almost 100
because on the event of the slave is worshiping Allah, but his heart is not experiencing any kind of humility, then that worship that such that that because his voice, it's meaningless.
So what is it that brings quality to record? What is it that brings quality to reverb?
And over here, we learned that the angels want you to be hula hoop, they also glorify him they also do is to smear along with the Rebbe, they also do the speech. Many times we focus only on Sunnah, when it comes to events, and we neglect
remembering a loss of penalty we neglect doing more and more to smear the angel they do the spear while we assuming and they also do sector.
However, here you may see a sign in you're just in you must have by the word yes to do.
And this is the sign of such data.
And this is the first session that in our in the Quran that we're coming across.
And remember that there are a total of 15 places in the Quran, were such that in our is to be performed.
15 is of the Quran, which when they recited the person who is either reciting or listening to that recitation, what should he do? He should perform the search that in our
search that in our frustrating to a loss of time upon reading such an ayah
This is why
it is mandatory. It is obligatory according to OSHA.
And what's the evidence for that, that at the time of the conquest of Makkah, when the prophet SAW the Lotus and and recited the Quran, and he reached the peace of cetera, everyone frustrated,
we learned that those people who are upon their animals upon their mount, they about themselves and those on the floor also they did such
We also learned that once the profit what a lot of sudden was delivering the sermon, and he reached the idea of session, and he left the pulpit and he did such.
So what does it show to us that such a dilemma is mandatory.
However, other scholars, they say, that says that in our is a Sunnah. And it is preferable.
It's not mandatory in every situation, rather it is preferable, it is something that that we must do. However, person does not do it, then he's not blamed with these not sinful. And what's the evidence for that? many evidences, for example, we learned to date even sabbat. Once you recite to the najem, in the presence of the prophets of Allah.
And the Prophet said, a lot of them did not prostrate. And the prophets or a lot of them did not assert that at that moment.
However, we learned in other situations where sort of the legend was recited. The Prophet said a lot of them didn't do such them.
So in one instance, he didn't do such that in another he did, what does it show that it's not mandatory to do such that in our every time.
Similarly, we also learned that remote of new hotel was a yarn once he recited the verse of frustration, which is in sort of the number
when he was delivering the hook on Friday, and he came down from the member and he did the such thing
The following Friday, he recited the same I again, but he did not do the session. And he said to the people, that Allah has not enjoined us to prostrate unless we want,
Allah has not enjoined us to prostrate unless we want. So, what is the tool, it is not an obligation, rather, it is something that is recommended, it is assumed that it is highly praised.
Because if you look at it what is essentially
the angels they worship Allah, they glorify Him, they prostrate before him. So, when you hear something like that, when you read something like that, it should make you want to prostrate to a loss of Panasonic instantly as well
So, this is why we learned that the prophet SAW the lowness of them at these points he did such that and in other instances, when the same is were cited, he does not do such.
Now, how is such an hour supposed to be done? How do you do it? And what are the conditions?
First of all, remember that it is not essential to have will do Firstly,
Because it is not a part of Salah
it is not a participant.
I mentioned to you that at the conquest of Makkah, one of the ayah says that was recited and everyone frustrated everyone.
Now, can it be imagined that there are 1000s and 1000s of people in one place and everybody's in Moodle at that time possible.
So the correct view is that it is not mandatory that a person must be in the state of Moodle, when he does set it out.
Which is why it is said that even a woman who is menstruating, a woman who is menstruating, even if she comes across such an ayah either she reads it herself or she hears somebody else reciting it. Even she can perform decision that you know,
although she is menstruating why because such that tilawat is not a part of finance, it's different. It's not a part of something
similar He has also said that a woman if she reads such an ayah or if such an ayah is read to her and she listens to it, then she should do the searches now what even if she does not have the hijab on her head, why
because this such This is not the center of Salah it's such that pillow
filter, remember that for this subject in our there is no plan nor any technique when coming up from such
Because generally when we get it from such depth for instance if we are getting up and then we sit and then eventually what do we do we say the center that asleep. However when we get it from the sense that in our then there is no need to say Allahu Akbar when getting up. And there is no need to say the salon either. However it is prescribed to say that lead when frustrating when you're going down to say that then you must say Allahu wa
It is said that a bb dullish nine a 70 he would recite the Quran while he would be on his way, for example, walking or he would be on an animal or something like that. And whenever he would reach the if such that he would just bend his head right there. And he would read the door, he would recite the door which door the door of such the CFO.
So what do we learn? How are we supposed to such as you know,
that when we hear the ayah or when we read the ayah we can do such the right there and whether we have will do or we don't have what are we wearing the hijab or we're not wearing the hijab
whether we are standing or we are sitting or we are walking or in the car, wherever we are, we can perform the search.
But remember, it is not mandatory. It is assumed that it is highly recommended, but it is not mandatory. So depending on your situation, you may do it.
And in a way it's a blessing but it's not mandatory. Because just imagine the phone you know a person was memorizing an idea of how difficult it must be for him that every time you read the has to do such that it will be very impractical.
Now in the sector, to our What are we supposed to recite?
You must know Dre is such a wedgie. He did Nadine caulerpa who worship customer who was the fellow who the holy Goku was he developed a lot of subtle, funny thing. This is a Muslim law. What does it means? My face has frustrated before Him who created it and brought forth its faculties of hearing and seeing by his mind and power. Bless It is Allah the best of creators
So all of you performed the surgery right now. wherever you are.
what if you don't know what to do
then just remain silent don't say anything because there are no other words that we find which are supported from the subnet if you don't know just remain silent and focus on remembering the door
this session is only done one
meaning you don't perform to such the one after the other just like you're doing tonight it's only one
pika is that una nueva
one of the best ways of making sure you do a scowl after budget is that wherever you pray your budget for that in your bedroom or wherever, nature you have a plan or your ear kind of staring book or your Muslim dollars book right by your side so that as soon as you're done your solar, you can immediately begin to recite the Quran or do your US GAAP or whatever it was you have to me
and it's not necessary to face the Qibla while you are performing the such that in our
recitation of these
Welcome Rob bank caffeine

I said, I've already called
