00:00:01--> 00:00:10

And to come out of this heedlessness of the Day of Judgment of our duty to a loss of primal data. What do we need? The Quran?

00:00:11--> 00:00:29

Allah subhanaw taala says, yeah a human nurse or people or mankind, all people are being addressed. Yeah you Hannah's at como are illegitimate what become? Certainly there has come to you instruction from your Lord.

00:00:30--> 00:00:34

Allah is instructing you, and He has sent you an instruction

00:00:35--> 00:00:56

morellato Mira become and it's not just an instruction, but what else is it? Was she fair on Lima for sudo and a healing for what is in the chests? Well, who then and a guidance while I'm at an any mercy for who they mean for those people who believe

00:00:58--> 00:01:00

all people are being addressed over here.

00:01:01--> 00:01:09

They're Khadija at como ella and admonition and instruction has come to you from Allah.

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

What is this molar?

00:01:12--> 00:01:19

The Quran? The Quran is a morula from Allah. And the Quran is also a Shiva

00:01:20--> 00:01:23

a cure, a remedy a healing?

00:01:24--> 00:01:36

The question is, what is immortal. Marilla is from the refectory as well I look. And what does wild mean, to admonish someone to advise someone.

00:01:37--> 00:01:41

Basically, mozzarella is a reminder

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

of First of all, faith,

00:01:45--> 00:02:06

goodness, help righteousness by God. So it is to remind someone off that which is good for them. That which is beneficial for them, or righteous action, that which is the truth. So it is to remind someone off first of all, fade, help righteousness.

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

Secondly, it also includes that a person reminds the other of abstaining from sharp from evil,

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

from disobedience

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

from badly from that, which is wrong.

00:02:24--> 00:02:41

So you see, there's two things in it, that you're telling someone to do good. And at the same time you're stopping them from doing that which is wrong. You're telling them about that which is going to benefit them. And at the same time you're warning them against what that could harm them.

00:02:42--> 00:02:43

So there's two things involved.

00:02:44--> 00:02:51

And how does a person give this Moreover, with a floss with sincerity, with well wishing

00:02:53--> 00:03:04

that you really want good for the other, you really want him to be saved. You really want him to benefit, you really want him to succeed. This is why you will tell him what to do and what not to do,

00:03:05--> 00:03:16

isn't it? Like, for example, if you've taken an exam before a certain type of exam, and your friend is about to take that exam as well, what are you going to do? You're going to say make sure you study this and this

00:03:17--> 00:03:33

and this stuff, don't worry too much about it. Focus on this stuff, right? This is what my role is to advise someone to do that which is good. advise them to stay away from that which is wrong. And this is done with Islam with sincerity.

00:03:34--> 00:03:38

And also in a manner that is effective

00:03:39--> 00:03:42

in a manner that is effective in a manner that is hard softening.

00:03:43--> 00:04:13

Because sometimes what happens, we are given instructions, but they don't strike us at all. We are given advice, but it doesn't make any effect on our heart. We don't want to do it. We forget about it. But if something really touches our heart, we remember it and you want to do it. This is what moralize. So basically, it includes encouragement, it includes warning, it includes advice. And it shows to a person that this is really what is good for me this is what's going to work for me.

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

And this is what the Quran is

00:04:17--> 00:04:25

that Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran, he teaches us what is hate, what is righteousness, what do we have to do to be successful?

00:04:26--> 00:04:37

So many times we have learned in the Quran when there Lika who will fells it early that is a great success, that for people who do such and such they will have Jeanette they will have reward

00:04:39--> 00:04:43

Allah gives them good news of reward. So many times we have read the Quran.

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

Similarly, at the same time there is warning against what must be avoided, what leads to failure in the hereafter. And this is done with encouragement as well as in a very effective manner. So other jatco morellato

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

Hold on has come to you. And it is full of advice. It is full of admonition it is full of instruction for you. And it has come to you from who may or may come from your Lord.

00:05:11--> 00:05:38

Sometimes what happens, we hear about something, somebody tells us, we don't really listen to them, because it's coming from a person. And we have a bias against that person. We don't really get along with them. But if we read the exact same thing in the Quran, the exact same lesson, what happens? becomes easier to accept, isn't it? So? Like for example, if before your parents would tell you praise Allah, come on, it's time to pray, get up and pray.

00:05:39--> 00:06:07

Perhaps many of us would like know why. See, again, she's telling me to pray. But when we learn in the Quran, about the importance of establishing the Salah, then what happens? does it become easier to do it because you know it's coming from Allah. So may not be come from your Lord and this is where she fed and Aiko it is a healing it is a remedy for what Lima is so due for that which is in the chests of Salut is a Florida Southern.

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

Now what is in the chest,

00:06:11--> 00:06:14

the heart and what is in the heart?

00:06:15--> 00:06:16

Many things

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

many things are there in the heart.

00:06:20--> 00:06:36

And a chifa a cure is obviously for a problem for a disease. So in the heart are many diseases, many problems, many illnesses. And these diseases can be physical as well as spiritual.

00:06:37--> 00:06:49

So Allah subhanaw taala says that the Quran is a cure is a remedy for any disease of the heart. Obviously, what is meant over here is the spiritual diseases.

00:06:50--> 00:06:53

What are some of the spiritual diseases?

00:06:54--> 00:06:57

many spiritual diseases that people suffer from in their art?

00:07:00--> 00:07:01

hypocrisy.

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

This building

00:07:04--> 00:07:08

jealousy it's a big illness.

00:07:09--> 00:07:12

It's a major illness. It's a life threatening illness.

00:07:13--> 00:07:14

What else?

00:07:15--> 00:07:16

laziness, okay.

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

arrogance, gibberish.

00:07:20--> 00:07:21

doubts.

00:07:22--> 00:07:29

having doubts about Allah having doubts about the Koran, having doubts about the Day of Judgment. What else?

00:07:31--> 00:07:37

What other diseases of the heart are there? If we don't even know about the diseases, then how can we think about curing them?

00:07:40--> 00:07:43

Love for the dounia that's a major illness.

00:07:44--> 00:07:45

Depression,

00:07:46--> 00:08:00

depression, sadness, that when a person has so much, he has love from his family, he has money, he has food. He has everything in life. But still he is sad in his heart. He's not satisfied. He is depressed.

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

Depression is a major illness of the heart.

00:08:05--> 00:08:05

What else

00:08:07--> 00:08:14

showing off, wanting approval from people not doing things for Allah subhanaw taala exclusively.

00:08:15--> 00:08:16

This is also a major problem.

00:08:19--> 00:08:32

Hatred, hating other people. Because when a person has hatred against someone, that he is literally killing himself. It eats him up because the other person has no idea sometimes who is getting harmed the person himself

00:08:33--> 00:08:44

and just like a heart disease, it affects the rest of the body hatred and all other diseases of the heart. What do they do? They affect our body. They affect our behavior. They affect our actions. They affect our thinking.

00:08:46--> 00:08:48

What other diseases of the heart are there?

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

stinginess?

00:08:52--> 00:08:52

Sure.

00:08:54--> 00:09:09

enforcer. Sure. What is your stinginess, miserliness not wanting to park from what you love? You can't share anything with someone. This is what is bias. bias against other people. Anger.

00:09:10--> 00:09:12

Similarly sherawat desires

00:09:13--> 00:09:15

shabiha doubts,

00:09:16--> 00:09:19

ignorance. What about stress?

00:09:20--> 00:09:47

Stress, when people take stress that every little thing that also comes from the heart, because some people they're going through such major problems but still you will not find them stressful when other people decided that they will stress them out. stress, depression, all of these things are one of the diseases of the heart. What does Allah say? The Quran is a Shiva for all that is in the soul.

00:09:48--> 00:09:52

Any disease of the heart, where will you find the cure in the

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

wahoo then and it is a guide and immersi for who little movement in for the believers.

00:10:01--> 00:10:17

So we see that at the beginning who is addressed here? Are you a nurse? The Quran is for everyone. However, who is it that's really going to benefit from the Quran? It's the meaning. For them it is issue fair, it is a Buddha it is.

00:10:18--> 00:10:22

The message is for all people, but only the believers benefit.

00:10:23--> 00:10:46

We learn in total Islam I number 80 to 100. zero means any man who has Shiva on Warhammer to limit meaning and we send down of the Quran that which is a cure and a mercy for who for those people who believe when A is either Romina Illa herself and it increases the wrongdoer is nothing but loss.

00:10:48--> 00:11:02

Similarly, intellect Firstly, that is number 44. We learn Columbo Valentina, Armand Odin, once you say it is for those who believe a guide, and a cure. The Quran is a guide, and a cure for those people who believe.

00:11:04--> 00:11:19

Similar into the earlier one, I 138, we learn how to be an alumnus, who then will move to deal with the pain. This foreign is a clear statement to all the people and the guidance and instruction for those who are conscious of Alma talking.

00:11:22--> 00:11:35

So we see in this ayah, they're called Marilla. It tells us what to do. Secondly, it is a shift. It's a cure. It's a remedy. Once a person came to the profits, little Autism

00:11:36--> 00:11:43

is recorded, by the way, that a person once came to the prophet SAW the Lotus Adam and he said in me

00:11:45--> 00:12:03

that I have a complaint in my chest, meaning My heart, my chest, I feel bad. I'm not comfortable, I'm depressed, I'm sad, I'm hurting. It's not that I'm hurting physically. Just my heart, my soul that I don't feel well. Either he said the profits or loss and replied it couldn't

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

recite the Quran, read the

00:12:08--> 00:12:12

licola Natasha, where she fell on the map to

00:12:13--> 00:12:18

recite the Quran because Allah subhanaw taala has said, it is a cure for that which is in the heart.

00:12:20--> 00:12:25

Sometimes, a person says something to us and we feel as if our heart is tightening.

00:12:26--> 00:12:43

Why is she telling me to do this? Who is she to tell me we feel our heart constricting? How much? Remember? Similarly, a person has said he is depressed, he is anxious, he is stressed out? What is the cure? Where is the cure? It's in the Koran.

00:12:45--> 00:12:51

There are many people who are ill today, not physically, but otherwise, they complain a sadness.

00:12:52--> 00:13:04

They complain of loneliness. They complain of depression, in many other problems. The one who has made the heart He is telling us what the cure is to the diseases of the heart.

00:13:05--> 00:13:11

What is that cure the Quran, the cure to any disease of the heart.

00:13:12--> 00:13:19

Now the whole on, it becomes shift out for a person, when a person uses this shift correctly.

00:13:21--> 00:13:48

When a person uses the shoe fat properly, if a person is hurting, if a person is sad, he is worried he's anxious, then he's definitely ill. And he needs to cure that. Remember, if a person is jealous if a person has said, you shouldn't just be okay. This is a problem that I'm suffering from just accept it. No. Luckily there are in the world for every ailment, there is a cure and Allah subhanaw taala has given us that cure Why?

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

So that we cure ourselves

00:13:52--> 00:14:02

so that we fix ourselves? So if a person is suffering from a problem at heart, then what does he need to do? He must solve it. He must cure himself. And how will that be done?

00:14:03--> 00:14:08

How will that be done by using the right medication? What is the right medication for the illness of the heart?

00:14:10--> 00:14:19

And the medication will only work if a person uses it properly, isn't it? If you just buy the medication

00:14:21--> 00:14:34

and you put it in your kitchen, on the counter so that you can see it every day? Is it gonna work? That's how you carry it in your vacuum. Is it gonna work? No. If you open it, you look at it. You count the pills.

00:14:36--> 00:14:45

You smell it. You tell everybody about it. You read about the medication, but you don't put it in your mouth. Is it gonna benefit you?

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

If you just look at it,

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

if you just think about it, if you just say you're going to use it, you go to the doctor you get the prescription you even go buy it. It's not going to help you unless and until

00:15:00--> 00:15:16

You use it? And let's say you do use it, but you don't use it properly. For example, you're supposed to use the medication twice a day. What do you do? You skip many days in the middle, you skip many doses in the middle isn't going to work. It's not going to work.

00:15:17--> 00:15:22

Similarly, in order to be cured by the Quran, what does a person need to do?

00:15:24--> 00:15:30

Does he just need to memorize the translation? Does he just need to pass the tests? What does he need to do?

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

He needs to recite it.

00:15:35--> 00:15:36

Just in that class?

00:15:37--> 00:15:37

No,

00:15:39--> 00:15:54

not just in the class, he needs to recite it. In his Salah, outside of Salah when he is alone, in the hours of the night, early in the morning. Throughout the day, he needs to recite the Quran, he needs to take that medication only then he will get the cure.

00:15:55--> 00:16:08

And he needs to take it consistently. It's not possible that a person takes a medication. And then he leaves it for an entire week. He leaves it for the weekend. Do you get any break from taking your medication on the weekends?

00:16:09--> 00:16:14

Do you know do you say okay, you know, I want to take off today, no medication for me today.

00:16:15--> 00:16:48

People who have serious illness, especially heart illnesses, they have to take their medication properly. They cannot take even one break, they cannot miss even one dose. If they do. The consequences are very serious. Similarly, for a person who wants to cure himself from the Quran, with the Quran, he cannot borrow from the Quran. He cannot say I read it from Monday to Friday. Now I need to break on Saturday and Sunday. Now I need a break for an entire week. No, if you do that, it's not going to work. It's not going to work. You have to take a consistently

00:16:49--> 00:16:54

seminary similarly, when you're taking a medication, you have to be certain that it's going to work on you,

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

isn't it? You have to have that up?

00:16:59--> 00:17:04

Because if you keep saying no, no, no, this is not going to work. This is not going to work. Believe me, it's not going to work.

00:17:06--> 00:17:19

If you are certain, if you are confident that this medication is going to work on me, then it's going to work on you. Even if it's placebo, isn't it even if it's not real, even if it's fake even as a sugar pills

00:17:20--> 00:17:30

and somebody gives it to you and you think that yes this is the cure to my problem, you have it inshallah it will work because cure has a lot to do with the state of your mind.

00:17:32--> 00:17:38

Similarly, a person must have this confidence in the client, that this is the solution to my problems.

00:17:39--> 00:17:53

This is where I will find the cure. Without doubt, definitely this person is going to show me Nothing can cure me. Nor depression build can cure me. No talking to people can cure me what is going to cure me the Quran?

00:17:54--> 00:18:01

Now the question is, how does the Quran cure a person? How for that which is in the heart?

00:18:02--> 00:18:11

If you look at it, the Quran is the speech of who of Allah soprano. And who does Allah addressing the Quran?

00:18:12--> 00:18:35

Every single person, every single person is addressed in the Quran. So the questions, the worries, the anxieties that a person has, when he reads the Quran, his questions are answered. When he reads the Quran, his doubts are removed, he feels acknowledged. So as a person reads the Quran,

00:18:36--> 00:18:40

the shift comes to him, but it's only possible if he reads the Quran.

00:18:42--> 00:19:00

So for example, if a person has a doubt, for example, he wonders is already there. Does he really listen to my prayers? I've been making the offers so long. I'm in such a terrible situation, but isn't really there? Does he really see my situation? It happens.

00:19:02--> 00:19:20

Even the most righteous people sometimes they wonder about such things people who have never missed their Salah when they're in a very difficult situation they begin to wonder, where is Allah? So when a person reads the Quran, he reaches sola Ibrahim is number 10. He reads a filet Shakur. Do you have a doubt in Allah?

00:19:21--> 00:19:31

Are you doubting in Allah falcoda somehow it will. He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. Yeah, the rule commonly offered Allah calm, he is inviting that he may forgive you.

00:19:32--> 00:19:38

So when a person reads the Quran, the doubts the questions that he has in his heart, they're answered.

00:19:39--> 00:19:44

Similarly, anger. We discussed that it is a disease of the heart.

00:19:45--> 00:19:52

When a person reads the Quran, he reaches through the Shula. I am 37 and he reads either multiboot homea fiddle

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

when they're angry, they forgive but a person who just sort of took off I 199. He reads Whoa, they laugh

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

Take hold of forgiveness and pardon it every situation.

00:20:05--> 00:20:15

Now tell me if you're at hotel for two months ago, and after that you didn't read it again, you didn't take that medication again, how are you going to benefit?

00:20:16--> 00:20:23

Tell me, how are you going to benefit? You have to keep reading, you have to stay connected with the Quran.

00:20:24--> 00:20:29

Because when you stay connected, it keeps guiding you, it keeps curing you.

00:20:30--> 00:20:33

Likewise, there are many ups and downs in a person's life.

00:20:34--> 00:20:55

Throughout one's life, a person faces many problems and accident that have a relative sickness loss. And then when he reads into the Shura i a 30. That woman asaba call me mostly within family Mikasa. But I think that whatever disaster reaches you, it's because of what your hands have acquired. It's because what you've done yourself.

00:20:56--> 00:21:02

So when a person reads this, what does he begin to do? He begins to reflect on his own actions, what have I done wrong?

00:21:03--> 00:21:13

And if a person does not read it, what will he think it's because of this person, it's because of that person, he becomes impatient, he becomes angry, he becomes frustrated.

00:21:14--> 00:21:16

So the hold on is what cures a person.

00:21:17--> 00:21:21

Likewise, things happen in a person's life and he thinks that he cannot bear them.

00:21:23--> 00:21:30

He cannot tolerate things anymore at all things must change. However, when he reads wasa anticorrosion

00:21:33--> 00:21:35

what I said the Hebrew Cheyenne

00:21:37--> 00:21:45

it's possible if you don't like something, it's good for you. It's possible that you like something and it's bad for you. Well, luckily, our number one two letter word Allah knows and you don't know.

00:21:47--> 00:21:51

So this is how the Quran cures a person.

00:21:52--> 00:22:05

That the doubts a person has the questions that a person has the anger, the frustration, the problems that he's going through in life, where does he get the answers from? The Quran,

00:22:06--> 00:22:09

but it's only possible when a person remains connected.

00:22:11--> 00:22:18

And I'm sure many such incidents have happened with you that you're going through a certain problem or a certain phase and you're wondering about something and they're the answer comes in.

00:22:20--> 00:22:26

It happens with us almost every other day, if not every day, we find the answers in the Quran.

00:22:27--> 00:22:32

So if a person does not take this medication, then how will he help himself?

00:22:33--> 00:22:41

So the Quran becomes issue fair, it becomes Buddha, it becomes Rama because it takes people out of their problems.

00:22:42--> 00:23:01

As we don't insult the rat i a 28. That era Vedic Lillahi turtleman Indian kulu that unquestionably by the remembrance of Allah, hearts are assured. That is where the hearts find peace, where were into the Kabbalah. And what's one of the best forms of remembering Allah reciting.

00:23:03--> 00:23:06

Because when you will read, you will find the answers.

00:23:07--> 00:23:10

If you look at it, sometimes people have everything.

00:23:11--> 00:23:26

They can have anything that they want. However, they still feel as if something is missing in their lives. They still feel that there's something is missing, and they're not happy. They're not content, they're not satisfied.

00:23:27--> 00:23:35

And generally what happens in these situations, when people are sad, they leave the house, they go shopping, perhaps shopping will make me happy.

00:23:37--> 00:24:12

Or, for example, they will call someone, perhaps they will make me happy, they will turn the TV on, perhaps I will watch something that will be amusing. And I will be happy. They will start watching a movie they will start listening to something perhaps it will make them happy. That is not the cure. It's not the cure. Shopping is not the cure. Buying is not the cure. You know, talking to other people is not the cure. What is the cure? It's in the Quran. Just like when children when they're hungry, they don't know they're hungry, right? And they become very cranky, very upset. They begin to cry.

00:24:14--> 00:24:25

They don't know what's going on with them. But the mother she knows, okay, he hasn't eaten. This is why he's behaving like this. And once the child has given the food once a child is fed, he's fine. Isn't it?

00:24:26--> 00:24:52

Isn't it? So if you keep distracting the child, okay, take the child out to play or show him something. He's not going to be happy. You do one thing after the other he's not going to be happy unless and until he eats something. Isn't it so? So when we are ill when we are sad when we are depressed? The answer is in the Quran. And what do we need to do? We need to turn to the Quran.

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

We need to open up the Quran and start reading.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

Not start calling other people or going online to check

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

Has somebody sent an email to me that anyone remember me or not? Or check what's out there in the malls? What is it you're in opening the Quran

00:25:09--> 00:25:15

because if we keep turning to other things, we will never be satisfied, we will never be happy.

00:25:16--> 00:25:23

Cool say before they lay in the bounty of Allah will be able to MIT and in His mercy.

00:25:24--> 00:25:28

Before the law, he will be automatically What does a funnel of Allah refer to

00:25:30--> 00:25:34

the Quran, the Quran that Allah has given to someone,

00:25:35--> 00:25:50

this is an extra, a special favor on a person. Just think about it. So many people are out there in this world, suffering from so many problems. But Allah has chosen you for this fuddle

00:25:51--> 00:25:59

that He has given you the Quran, he has given you the ability, the opportunity to open the Quran every single day.

00:26:00--> 00:26:09

This is a follow this is a special favor from Allah, the Quran, what will matter he and also because of his Rama, what does Allah refer to,

00:26:11--> 00:26:13

that a person is able to benefit from the

00:26:15--> 00:26:18

a person is able to take guidance and cure from the Quran.

00:26:19--> 00:26:35

Because there are many people again, who know the Quran, who read the Quran, but they don't benefit from it. So because of this follow of Allah, and because of this Rama of Allah, for Be very careful here for who in that let them rejoice in that they should be happy.

00:26:36--> 00:27:05

For Leo, for who for Leo for who is on the roof address for help 44 which is to be happy. When is the person happy when he gets that which he likes, when he's satisfied when he's contempt. So because you have been given this father, and because you have benefited from the Quran, be happy because of that. And the word vaniqa it gives a sense of only because of this. People become happy when they eat nice food

00:27:07--> 00:27:32

when they go somewhere, when somebody praises them. But what does Allah say? That they should be happy because of the fact that they have managed to understand a part of the Quran, reflect on a part of the Quran benefit from it, heavy nanika folia for who why, because who are higher on it is better manage barrel from all that people gather.

00:27:33--> 00:27:35

The Quran is better.

00:27:36--> 00:27:52

The Quran is far better than all those things that the people can collect, that people can hoard that people can amass in this world, compared to all those things that people are gathering, the one who receives the Quran, he should be more happy.

00:27:53--> 00:28:21

He should be happier. When people manage to have a good collection of let's say clothes, they're so happy. Now I have this and this and this. When a person has a collection of an iPhone and an iPod and an iPad and an iMac. Then what happens? He becomes so happy I have this whole collection person becomes so proud of himself. But what does Allah say? What should you be happy about? The Quran.

00:28:22--> 00:28:36

People become very happy when they have their collections. But a person who has been given the Quran he should be happier, he should be more happy, because he has been given something that is far better. That is way better.

00:28:37--> 00:28:54

So what do we learn that a person must be happy when he receives the Quran? Because he has been given something very special. We learn from the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in Nelly later Allah, Lena when a nurse will call an whom Allah Allah He will have such

00:28:56--> 00:28:59

that for amongst people. There are some special ones,

00:29:00--> 00:29:01

special ones

00:29:02--> 00:29:04

do Allah And who are they? They are the

00:29:05--> 00:29:12

the people of the Quran. So those people who Allah has chosen for the Quran, they should be very happy.

00:29:13--> 00:29:18

They should be joyful, they should rejoice because Allah has given them the best.

00:29:19--> 00:29:23

The best that is out there, Allah subhanaw taala has given them

00:29:24--> 00:29:30

because when a person when he has the Quran, he develops his strong relationship with a

00:29:31--> 00:29:33

very deep friendship with

00:29:35--> 00:29:38

a very deep friendship, connection with a loss

00:29:40--> 00:29:44

of trust, of dependence, of reliance,

00:29:45--> 00:29:57

of sharing your problems and your happiness with a lot wherever you are, of thinking about him depending upon him. And this is only possible when a person receives

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

so individually

00:30:00--> 00:30:11

This friendship with Allah, one should be happy. Because if a person has the friendship of Allah, then he is the richest. And if a person does not have the friendship of Allah then he is the poorest.

00:30:13--> 00:30:15

Because nothing else can be its equivalent.

00:30:16--> 00:30:29

It is said liquidly Shay in either doctor who everyone will a sudden there he info doctor mean, for everything that you leave in this world, there is a substitute.

00:30:30--> 00:30:37

Anything that you miss anything that you lose anything that you leave, you can find a substitute for it.

00:30:38--> 00:30:45

If you miss out on eating at one restaurant, you can eat it another, no big deal, you will still have your stomach full.

00:30:46--> 00:30:49

If you miss out on one pair of shoes, you can buy another.

00:30:50--> 00:31:04

If you miss out on one party, you can go to another. If you don't go to one country, you can go to another for everything in this world, there is a substitute. But if you depart from Allah, there is no substitute for him.

00:31:06--> 00:31:09

Well as an ally in farakka, missionary work,

00:31:10--> 00:31:27

if you are far from Allah, if you don't have a friendship with Allah, then you don't have anything. There is no substitute for Allah. Nothing at all. And generally what happens because we don't have this strong connection with Allah, strong friendship with Allah, people turn to other things.

00:31:28--> 00:31:36

And they think that if they collect many things, they'll become happy, isn't it? We'll find them in Maya tomorrow, people collect different things.

00:31:37--> 00:31:47

Many things of this world, anything and everything you will find somebody with a collection of it, you name it, somebody or the other has a collection, isn't it so

00:31:48--> 00:32:05

somebody has a collection of rocks and other person has a collection of key chains and other person has a collection of bags? Has a person has a collection of Yoker boxes? I mean, people collect the most random things. The most random things scarves, hedgehog, bins, furniture, carpets, rugs,

00:32:06--> 00:32:12

different different things, from the most valuable to the most cheapest to the most insignificant to the most useless.

00:32:13--> 00:32:14

People collect things.

00:32:15--> 00:32:17

Why? What's the psychology behind it?

00:32:18--> 00:32:21

What's the psychology behind it? What's the reason behind it?

00:32:22--> 00:32:33

Why do people collect things? Think about it. If you've collected a lot of hijabs a lot of kitchen stuff, a lot of house stuff, what's the reason behind it? What is it that you feel when you look at your collection?

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

feel happy.

00:32:37--> 00:32:38

If you have something

00:32:40--> 00:32:53

when you need it, you will find it isn't at all. Like for example, when people collect little plastic containers and plastic bags, why? That when I need it, I will have it right.

00:32:54--> 00:33:20

or different colored hijabs. Why? To match this garment to match this shirt to match this pair of pants to match this japin? No, sometimes I wonder if people have a Japanese of all colors? all colors. Why? Because when I want to match this with this, I will have it. So the reason behind collecting things is to find happiness, to find contentment.

00:33:22--> 00:33:23

But do you really find that happiness?

00:33:25--> 00:33:42

The more you collect of this world, the more complicated and difficult and stressful your life becomes. The more dishes you have, the more you have to watch. The more clothes you have, the more you have to organize, isn't it

00:33:43--> 00:34:07

anything that you have of this world, your life becomes more and more complicated, you cannot find that happiness, you cannot find that happiness, what is it that truly brings happiness to a person when he has a friendship, a bonding, a connection with Allah subhanaw taala because then whether he has something or he doesn't have it, he will be happy.

00:34:08--> 00:34:12

No matter where he is, he will be contented he will be satisfied he will be happy.

00:34:13--> 00:34:21

So instead of pursuing different different things of this dunya collecting this and collecting that, what should we be collecting?

00:34:23--> 00:34:24

What should we be collecting?

00:34:28--> 00:34:48

And it doesn't mean you buy one copy of the Quran from one place and other copy from another place. What does it mean? You collect it in your heart, you gather it in your heart, because when you have collected it in your heart, then you will be able to use it at the right time. Then you will remember it at the right occasion, then you will be able to benefit from it.

00:34:50--> 00:34:58

If you make this Quran a source of peace for yourself in this life, then you will be able to have peace in the hereafter.

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

But if you think

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

That peace will come to you. By having clothes and shoes and bags and different different things of this world, you will not have peace, all your peace will instead be taken away from you. Because today you're dusting. Tomorrow you're sorting they after you are thinking what do I keep? What do I not keep? Because getting too much.

00:35:20--> 00:35:32

If you look at when we're going through some problems, when we're going through some difficulty, perhaps we're hurting in our heart, we're feeling bad. We're feeling very depressed. What do we do? Generally we go to other people, we start talking to them.

00:35:33--> 00:35:52

We say okay, what do you have to say? And sometimes they cannot help us at all, they really cannot help us. And at the end, we come back thinking, you know, we just told everybody about our use our faults, we spread our dirty laundry in front of other people. And it didn't benefit us at all.

00:35:53--> 00:35:56

But on the other hand, if you open up the Quran,

00:35:57--> 00:36:00

if you open up the Quran, that's much better for you.

00:36:01--> 00:36:01

Why?

00:36:03--> 00:36:24

Because there you will find answers, there you will find the solutions. There you will find the guidance. And if you think No, no, the answer is not in the Quran. It's in talking to other people. How can the Quran which was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu How can I guide me? How is it possible if a person does not have that ear clean then definitely he will not be able to benefit from the Quran.

00:36:26--> 00:36:37

So the cure is not in collecting things but in turning to the Quran like it is said that if you want to talk to Allah, pray, and if you want to listen to Allah, read the Quran.

00:36:38--> 00:36:45

That's how you have a conversation. And the best way of doing that is in Salah that when you recite the poem in the Salah.

00:36:47--> 00:36:49

Let's listen to the recitation of these ayat and they will do something

00:37:03--> 00:37:04

worry want to

00:37:06--> 00:37:07

be Kumasi.

00:37:09--> 00:37:13

Lima, mucho de una.

00:37:17--> 00:37:20

Mimi

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

Mati me.

00:37:37--> 00:37:37

See,

00:37:41--> 00:37:45

it is better than what they gather. Who does they refer to

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

the people of dystonia.

00:37:49--> 00:37:51

They have been used not view

00:37:53--> 00:38:10

what people gathered. People have dystonia, the people whose goal whose ultimate is this world. They think that the happiness of this world is the ultimate happiness. And the sadness of this world is the ultimate sadness. And the success of this world is the ultimate success, the defeat of this world is the ultimate defeat.

00:38:11--> 00:38:21

What do these people do? In order to be happy, they collect things of this world. And they become very attached to them very attached.

00:38:22--> 00:38:27

If you think of it, your things, you find them very precious, you're very attached to them.

00:38:28--> 00:38:31

But at the same time, they are garbage in the eyes of other people,

00:38:33--> 00:38:33

isn't it?

00:38:36--> 00:38:38

sometimes take other people's opinion on the things that you own?

00:38:40--> 00:38:51

Honestly, books that you have clothes that you have the kitchen stuff that you have even your own children? Ask them? What do you think about this? What do you think about this honestly,

00:38:52--> 00:38:57

to you, it's very precious in other people's eyes, it's garbage, it's useless.

00:38:59--> 00:39:16

So what is it that truly has value? the things of this dunya they don't have any value, they don't have any value at all. So we should stop trying to satisfy our hearts by collecting the things of this world. And we should spend our time in collecting gems from the Quran.

00:39:18--> 00:39:32

Because the more you collect from this world, the more time you have to dedicate to it. The more you collect off the Quran, the more time you will have to dedicate to it. So it depends. What do you want for yourself.

00:39:33--> 00:39:37

And if you look at it, what you have today, you keep it with so much care.

00:39:39--> 00:39:47

The classes that you have the tables that we have, we prevent them from scratches. So many things that we have, we try to take care of them so much.

00:39:48--> 00:39:56

But what happens those very things sometimes they get destroyed before our eyes. And if not before our eyes within a few years, what's going to happen to them.

00:39:57--> 00:39:58

They're gonna end up in the garbage

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

Eventually what's going to happen color, either Ducati or conducta.

00:40:05--> 00:40:13

What do we learn in silicon fetchit iO 21 that when the earth has been leveled, bounded and crushed,

00:40:14--> 00:40:30

leveled, bounded and crushed. Think about the lovely China that people have in their glass cabinets, perhaps we have in our glass cabinets as well. Think about that jewelry, that we keep in lovely boxes,

00:40:31--> 00:40:34

in our jewelry boxes, so that nothing can scratch them

00:40:35--> 00:40:38

about the surfaces of the tables that we protect from scratches.

00:40:39--> 00:40:53

If we spend our life looking after these things, collecting these things, what is the end of these things, they will be leveled, they'll be bounded, they'll be crushed. Just like you put something in a blender, it's crushed about

00:40:54--> 00:40:58

the whole world is going to be crushed about it. Do these things really have any value,

00:40:59--> 00:41:12

any value at all, they don't have any value. But at the same time, if you spend your time with the Quran, then what's going to happen? The Quran is going to be your companion in your grave

00:41:13--> 00:41:34

where your things will not accompany you, no matter how much you like them. No matter how dear they are to you, they're not going to come to you to your grave. What is going to come to you the Quran as a companion, a beautiful companion. On the day of judgment, the Quran will be your companion, not the crystal and the China that you looked after so much in this world.

00:41:35--> 00:41:45

Not that whole collection of shoes of clothes, of belts of pins that we have no, what is it that's going to accompany us what it's going

00:41:47--> 00:42:02

to be wise. Don't short sell yourself, be wise, spend your time with the Quran. Don't spend your time with the things of this world. Because the things of this world, they will be leveled and the Quran will accompany you,

00:42:03--> 00:42:13

Furby valic Ophelia for who it's with this are on only that they should be happy that when they look at the Quran, they should be happy. Not that when they look at their collection, they're very happy.

00:42:15--> 00:42:17

And we need to ask ourselves, when do we really become happy?

00:42:19--> 00:42:38

If you look at it, our problem is that we consider the success of this life to be the ultimate success, which is why people who have a lot of you who have collected many things, perhaps many degrees, who have collected many houses, many cars, many friendships. For us that is a criteria of success.

00:42:39--> 00:42:59

Whereas if you look at it ourself, the pious predecessors, what is it that they collected? The Quran, the deen the knowledge. And you will find so many incidents in which the Sahaba or the Tabby rune or the great scholars of our religion, they did not even have two pairs of clothes.

00:43:00--> 00:43:16

Just imagine they didn't even have two pairs of clothes because they spent their life their time gathering what the Quran, the Hadees they didn't spend their life gathering the sense and the pennies of this world. They didn't waste their life in that.

00:43:18--> 00:43:23

Exactly. This is why the inheritance of the Prophet is what knowledge, it's not the money that they leave behind.

00:43:24--> 00:43:29

So we also have to choose the best for ourselves. Not this world.
