All say meaning say to the co founder of Makkah, amin OBE, Allah took me up, believe in the Quran, or you don't believe in the Quran. meaning you're believing in the Quran and you're just believing in the Quran does not make a difference.
Because the Quran is true in and of itself. Generally people think something is true when people accept it. And something is not good when people refuse to accept it.
But over here, Allah subhanaw taala says whether you believe in it, or you don't believe in the Quran, it doesn't make a difference, because it is true in and of itself. Your denial does not make a difference, it's not going to declare it as something false.
And besides, in the Medina, author, environment, poverty, indeed those people who are given knowledge before it before what, before the revelation of the Quran, So who are these people,
the knowledgeable ones, amongst the people of the book, the believers from amongst them, the righteous amongst those who adhere to their books, because you see, Uhler Elma they were given knowledge.
Either you slay him, when it is recited to them, meaning when the Quran is recited upon them, what happens to them, you feel rune, they fall down. Lil as funny on the chains suggestion as one's frustrating. Immediately they fall down, prostrating to a loss.
Because they're in such awe. They have been moved by the words of the Quran. And immediately they know that this is not the word of a human being. This has to be the word of Allah. So
if you notice the word you hate rune, ruination, newsletters horror, and horror is to fall down from above. And in particular, it is to fall down with speed support disorder, it is to fall down with speed very quickly, very fast.
And generally, when you drop something heavy, what will happen it will fall very quickly, as opposed to dropping like a piece of paper, it will take its time to settle to the ground. But if you drop a heavy pen, what's going to happen? Immediately it's going to collapse, immediately it's going to come down this is what is
so immediately, what happens as soon as they hear the words of Allah, they fall down on their chins and find is a plural of the occur or that they're off noon, with a flathead or a castle under that.
And it is in particular used for the chin.
And it includes the beard as well. For the men, it also includes the beard, so they fall down on their chins prostrating What does it mean by that?
That they immediately bender next, it is as if they're doing such that on their beards or on their chins, immediately the vendor next. So we see that the profits are a lot is being reassured over here. That if these people don't believe, you should be confident that what you're telling them is the truth. their disbelief is not going to make a difference.
And if they disbelief, what's the big deal? There are so many other people who do believe
and in particular, those to whom we have given the knowledge from before those people who were believers up until now true believers up until now.
And we learn that negus the king of Abyssinia when the Sahaba they migrated to the senior he called them and he asked them about what they believed in and Jaffa to learn. he recited the Quran he recited to look muddy, and how he wept and he cried.
We learned in the seventh years at the beginning of the seventh years as well, that what he does semi rumor owns either universally or uniform. They're Filomena done right? You see their eyes overflowing with tears. Over here, loss of primal data describes him as a lunatic as connoisseur Jetta.
waiuku Luna and they say, super Hannah rabina glorified as our Lord in Kanwar. rabina Indeed, the promise of our Lord is ever Lama ruler surely want to be fulfilled. Indeed, the promise of our Lord has been fulfilled which promises is referring to
the promise of the final messenger of the last messenger.
Because remember that the bunny is for you. The people of the book the alligator, they were waiting for the final messenger.
So they say upon hearing the Quran that yes, incana work there have been a lot of rula Indeed, the promise of our Lord has been fulfilled.
It has been proven true that Allah has sent the Quran he has sent
So it shows that they were waiting. And when the messenger came when they heard the Quran, they submitted immediately
where he Luna and they fall down lil as Connie, on their chins on their faces, yo Bakula, they are weeping. They are crying. Why? Because they have realized the truth, out of gratitude, that finally, the word of Alaska, the final messenger has come up lunalilo, cornea macoun they cry out of gratitude.
That Finally I have found a solution. I have the answer. I know what to do now. I know what Allah wants from me now.
Unfortunately, we have the Quran as well. But we don't consider the Quran to be a huge blessing for us.
We don't think that this is the answer to our questions in life. This is the way to success. Because if we truly value the art and we would weep over it, we would cry out of gratitude. When someone is extremely grateful what happens? They begin to cry. When a person is lost, he doesn't know what to do. And he finds the answer. He cannot keep it within himself. He breaks down, it comes out of him. He begins to cry.
So we have grown in a cornea, Bakun way osito. Whom who sure and increases them in humble submission. What increases them, the Quran increases them in submission before Allah,
in humidity before Allah
and such people
they are beloved to Allah.
Because look at how Allah subhanaw taala describes them. Who, those people who when they listen to the Quran, they immediately Submit.
They humble, they cry, they're grateful. And they're not just grateful at that moment, and they forget about it later on know, the feeling stays within them. Why is he doing for sure for the rest of their lives? They become more humble before Allah soprano.
So we hear we need to question ourselves as well. That how grateful are we for the blessing of Quran? Do we really consider it to be a guide? Do we really consider it to be a solution to the problems in our lives? And when we do study the Quran, when we do listen to it, when we do understand something, what do we feel?
Is it just pride? That Yes, I'm so knowledgeable. Yes, I know about this as well. I know about that as well. I have such a good understanding of the Arabic tax is adjust this, or is it gratitude to Allah, that Oh Allah. Finally I can understand your word. I know what you're saying to me. I know what you want from me. Finally,
we need to question ourselves over here as well.
Many people, when they study the Quran, they humble they become grateful. And others, they increase in their harshness, they increase in their pride.
And this is a sign of the fact that a person has not benefited from the Quran at all. Because one was truly benefited, he will be humbled, he will be grateful.
Oh say oder Allaha call upon Allah or whether man or call upon the Most Merciful, say to the people of
that whether you call upon Allah, or you call upon
the name of Allah subhanaw taala is modular Allah, Allah. This name the machine, the Arabs they were familiar with.
However, the name of our man they were not familiar with. Which is why whenever a man was mentioned before them, they would object they would object and they would say, we do not know who our man is. Change it.
We learned in the Quran, we're either Peter whom was Judo the Romani, or no woman Rockman. When it is Saturday and prostrate to our mind, they say, and what is this rock man? Who is this rock man, we don't recognize him. We're completely unfamiliar to him. And this was their way of rejecting what the prophet said about us and was telling them
so Allah subhanaw taala says over here, colinear la, over there over whether you call upon Allah, or you call upon us,
it's the same because both of them are names of a loss of time
and over here, that are what is being used. And remember that there are what is of two types or there are is of two types. First of all, need that meaning calling out to someone
calling out to someone asking them for help, or asking them to come, etc. So whether you pray to Allah or you pray to have a man
Secondly, there is also understood as test smear to give a name to someone.
So odor of law, a winner of Rockman, meaning whether you call him with the name of Allah, or you give him the name, you call him by the name of.
So first of all need that. And secondly, that's me. It's the same.
I Yama, whichever, a yen is actually a you
a humans, which I used for your tiny which of the two groups. And a yen is another version of that. So a young man, which ever
meaning any of these names, whichever of the two, that do, you call him, Father has a smile on her son. And then for him are the most beautiful names.
Any name that you call a las panatela? By
remember that all of his names are beautiful.
Now, does this mean that a person can invent names by himself? No, they have to be those names that allows prank data or his messenger has informed us about we cannot invent these names just because Allah said any name you call him by no name means the name that he has. Because Allah subhanaw taala has many names. And all of those names are personal, they're beautiful. They're excellent.
And the one who loves a loss of data, he will call upon Allah by all of his name.
And this is only natural. When you love someone. How do you call them?
How do you call them by just one name? But that's their first name. No, you have so many names for them, isn't it and each name reflects love, reflects adoration, admiration. So similarly, the one who really loves Allah, He will call upon Allah by all of his names, finally, with a smile on his neck. And we need to ask ourselves over here as well, that haven't memorized His names. Are we familiar with the names of Allah subhanaw taala. If we're not then how can we call upon him by the various names that he has
while at a job and do not be allowed biswal Attica in your Salah. That you have on the route setters, Gene hair
and job is to say something or it is to do something how out loud or open in public.
So that if a person has uttered a word it can be heard. And if a person is doing something, it can be seen. This is what Jerry's from the same root is the word Jerry Sala. What is the Jerry Salah
in which the recitation is out loud? Normally, when you pray Salah you don't recite out loud, for example, in stilettos and even in German, even in congregation, the email will not recite the Quran out loud. However, fragile Muslim, Russia, as well as the Jews are preamble for that, what do you have to do? You have to recite the Quran out loud.
So over here, a lot of penalty says lead that you be fanatical do not say out loud, your Salah.
And at the same time, why not to have it be her and do not even lower the voice completely in the Salah.
To have it from the roof letters have fat Whole Foods and Whole Foods is to be silent to be inaudible do not say anything. Or even if a person is saying anything he cannot be heard. So for example, if a person is just moving his lips and no sound is coming this is what Whole Foods. Similarly if a person is just saying in his heart, and he's not even moving his lips, then what is that? Whole Foods or if a person is reading in a way that other people cannot hear him? Or they have to really concentrate? Then again what is that whole food?
So over here, we are being told not to go to extremes in the sauna.
That first of all, don't go to the extreme of jihad. And secondly, don't go to the extreme of Whole Foods. Salah over here has been understood in two ways. First one It has been said that so now refers to Salah like the five daily prayers, the solo to show you the sugary soda which is the five daily prayers and secondly, it hasn't been tested Salah over here means
when you make dochula
so let the job be Sol Attica What does it mean? If you take the meaning of solid meaning the five daily prayers, then that that you will be fine
atika meaning the camera, the recitation of the Quran, in the jury Salah should not be extremely loud. You should not be yelling out the recitation of the Quran.
You should not be so loud that people outside your house outside the masjid they can hear and they're getting disturbed.
And especially the token was given were in Makkah, because if you think of it, at that time, there were ultimately kin, who were neighbors, who were perhaps living in one's own house as well.
And if a person were praying out loud, that would cause the machine to become very upset. And as a result of that, they will begin to curse the Prophet, they will begin to curse the believers they will begin to curse the Quran, or the one who has sent the Quran, they will begin to do that they will get extremely annoyed.
Secondly, leather Derby Salah Tikka what has been understood as Salah is your entire Salah. If you take the meaning of Salah meaning Sheree solid the first mean is do not yell out.
Secondly, do not make your entire Salah out loud.
For example, when you bring them up at Uppsala, it doesn't mean you have to recite everything out loud. Even if you're praying in congregation. What is it that you're going to recite loudly, only the recitation of the Quran.
When you go to record, you don't have to set the panel beater arleen out loud so that everybody can hear you know. And thirdly, leather Derby sadaqa jaren gives a meaning of Ria and meaning don't pray your Salah with the intention of making it visible to people so people can see it. And people can praise you and they can be impressed by it. So don't go to this extreme.
And then we take the meaning of select to be de la, Sol Attica, don't be too loud, don't begin to yell in your door so that others are getting disturbed whether to have it be here and do not even be extremely low in your recitation or in Eudora that nothing of it can be heard your lips are not even moving wobbly. And rather, you should seek baina data between that between what between Jehovah and between wholefood. Between that you should seek a sebelah away.
Meaning between jobs and Whole Foods, you should keep yourself in recitation, in praying and making graphs. Why?
Because when a person keeps his volume, such then this is the most beautiful delivery.
Sometimes you hear someone reciting the Quran, but they're reciting at the top of their lungs. And it's like, you know, your ears are getting hurt almost. And it also seems very disrespectful, isn't it? If somebody is yelling out the recitation of the Quran, it's very disrespectful. You should be moderate in your tone.
And also, if you look at it, if a person shouts if a person recites extremely loudly, then this is disrespectful, this is like interfering into other people's space. And if a person is too low, that would also be inappropriate. So there must be moderation even in the recitation of the Quran.
Now, just to go over these points again, so that it's clarified to us completely, because this is something very important we pray five times a day we recite the Quran we made to our How should we do it? Because Allah Subhana Allah has commanded us Weber de la Vina De Luca Serbia.
If you look at it, first of all, the meaning would be that do not yell. Do not say out the Salah, out loud in its entirety, so that other people who are around you, they can hear every single word that you attract.
Like for example, sometimes it happens that if a person is leading the solar, he will recite the recitation out loud, but the rest of the solar as well he will say it out loud and because the microphone is attached to him, people can hear everything that he's saying. And they cannot focus on their side because they can only hear what the Imam is saying which is being the volume is increased on the microphone. And the other extreme would be that a person does not even move his mouth.
that a person does not even articulate the words, he does not even say them out that he only says them in his heart. Remember, when you're saying the Salah, it is not acceptable that you just say everything in your heart. You have to say it with your mouth, your lips, your mouth, it must be moving. It must be moving. It has to be like in a whisper. But remember that the whisper again should not be too loud because sometimes people
Are whispering but they're whispering so loudly that the other person standing next to them thinks as if they're following them in the entire center. So be extremely careful. Don't go to the extreme of saying everything out loud. Don't go to the extreme of not saying anything at all. But whisper, but remember, it should not be a loud whisper.
Secondly, the recitation of the Quran in the Salah.
And as well as the recitation of the various adguard that we had in the Salah should neither be all too loud, nor should they be too low,
in the sense that in the jury Salah, there should be a balance how, but the recitation should be loud, and the rest of the supply should be low.
Understand only the recitation below and the rest of the supply should be low. You cannot go to the extreme of reciting everything out loud, you cannot go to the extreme of whispering everything. But there has to be a balance in the juries for especially when the Imam is leading everyone in prayer.
Thirdly, when a person is leading the Salah, he should not be yelling so that the people who are standing next to him are just waiting for the solid to end. Nor should the recitation be so low that those people who are farther away are struggling to listen.
This is extremely important, very important, that there should be moderation in the tone, you should see how many people are praying with you how many people are praying behind you. And according to that you should keep the level of your volume.
It should not be too loud that other people are getting disturbed, and other people cannot even hear even our basil did on who said that when the Prophet sallallaahu sudden recited the Quran at home, only the people in the home could hear his voice.
Only those people in the house could hear his voice other people outside, they were not able to hear his voice. And remember, the houses at that time were not soundproof. But unfortunately, despite the fact that we live in soundproof houses, sometimes we get so emotional, they will begin to recite so loudly that other people are getting disturbed, we shouldn't make this a means of disturbing other people.
Some people really get disturbed that they're reciting Quran so loudly. So we should be careful not to hurt anyone.
Firstly, a person should not lower the entire recitation
rather there should be increased and decrease in the volume.
In other words, it should not be in a monotone.
that a person is reciting at one tone, there should be increase, and there should also be decrease.
Because when a person recites like that, then it's naturally flowing out of him. And then the recitation is extremely effective. You will notice that in some recitations that we play in class, when they're recited, recites in a way that there's up and down in the volume, it's more effective,
when something important is being recited when a warning is there, when some good news is there, then there should be some loudness in the voice and other times the voice should be low. Similarly, fifth, when a person is reading the Sunnah,
for example, you're praying so that on your own, now your selection not be such that constantly you're saying it out loud, and it should not be that constantly Nothing can be heard. Rather, a person should read in a way that for example, sort
you understand, like, only parts of it should be outlawed.
Which is why we see that when the prophets or Larson would recite the Quran, or when he would say certain as God, the Sahaba, were able to tell what he was reciting. How is that possible? Because they could hear parts of the recitation.
So this is how our sonar should also be.
We see that once the prophet SAW the Lotus and then he passed by Abu Bakar Oh, the learn who, who was reciting the Quran in a very soft voice. And then he passed by a model leader who, who was reciting the Quran very loudly.
So he asked him about it avacado the nine who said, the one who is listening to me, he hears meaning I'm reciting for the sake of a line a lucky near me, even if I speak very low, and are motivated Who said I was reciting loudly so that I could wake those who were sleeping, so that they would also get up and pray and also to make sure that long run away. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Well, Mr. Lawry your voice, and aboubaker you increase your voice will be deadly Raina Delica sabirah there should be a moderation.
You see how our Deen teaches us about little little things as well. That how we should speak, how we should recite how our voice should not be a means of discomfort for other people. That if somebody is sleeping, yes, you want them to get up as well. But
They're sleeping. And it's not fun to be awake at this point and perhaps there's a reason behind the fact they're sleeping. So let them sleep, don't disturb them. Similarly, sometimes we're reciting the Quran and we want the other person to recite the Quran as well. So we will recite loudly, very loudly. Sometimes it's good but if you do it again and again, the other people will get offended.
and say all praises to Allah, Allah de la mia, wala done, the one who has not taken any son, any child
say Alhamdulillah and you notice a loss of panatela is commanding, whole, Say it. Say Alhamdulillah
Because Alhamdulillah Allah will Misa it fills the scale and Allah is commanding a sail handling because it is only Allah who deserves
Allah he the one who Why does he deserve him? Because he is the one who let me attack him when he has not taken a child. He does not need a child neither a son nor a daughter.
While a miracle and there is not for him Sheree can any partner Phil Mulkey in the dominion.
He does not have any partner in His Kingdom in his authority. No one shares his authority with him. No one shares his ownership with him. He is the only Malik The only Malik no one shares this characteristic with him while I'm equally sure he can film work
and we can also understand well I'm Jaco luxury contract to be a partner deserving worship or managing the affairs of the heavens and the earth because if there was any partner then what would happen blow canopy Hema le Hutton Illallah Lavasa surely there would be a lot of corruption
while a miracle level and there is not for him when a union, any protecting friend, any Guardian, he does not have a guardian, meaning literally out of humiliation, out of weakness, that out of weakness he needs to depend upon someone so therefore he has a wealth
of knowledge from the real factors that lamb lamb dole is when someone has humility, when someone is low in their status in their ability due to the pressure of the other or due to the great status of the other.
This is what a doula is when someone is small. Why? Because the other is great.
When someone is weak, why because the other is oppressive. This is what other lists
so Allah subhanaw taala does not need any Guardian because of the because he is an arleigh. And there is no one higher than him. There is no one above him. work a bit who and magnify him from the root letters gaff Bella duck leave the Kabira a definite magnification say Allahu Akbar.
So over here, we see that this is the end of the solar
and the surah ends with Alhamdulillah with the command that say Alhamdulillah and say Allahu Akbar.
It is said that the Torah also concludes with Alhamdulillah
and this surah is Surah Bani Israel. Surah Fatiha the Quran begins with Alhamdulillah and the next surah so little calf begins with 100
because when a person realizes the blessing of the Quran, when a person realizes the perfection of Allah subhanaw taala the greatness of Allah, then, naturally what will come out of his mouth, words of praise and gratitude, words that will magnify and glorify Allah soprano.
This is the last I have sort of been Israel is known as Ayatollah is the ayah the verse of glory
because in this ayah Allah subhanaw taala is praise and glorification as mentioned, it begins with 100 Allah and it ends with kabil with Akira with his duck beef. And why is he deserving of all praise? Because he does not need a child. He does not have any partner. He is not weak that he needs a wife. This is why Alhamdulillah and this is why Allah
recitation of desire
Yes, you move
So this was sort of money
is almost at the center of the
will reach the point where we will reach the half of the
circle, so is almost towards the center of the corner. And in this sutra, the incident of Islam is mentioned right at the beginning, which was a great gift to the Prophet sort of autism.
When the prophet SAW the Lotus and it was taken from Mecca to Jerusalem, and over there, he led all of the prophets in prayer. And that was an indication that now if anyone wishes to be guided, what does he need to follow? Who does he need to follow the last messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it shows that all of the previous shala air out of the previous scriptures and the laws that Allah subhanaw taala had given before they have now been abrogated by the law that has been given to Muhammad Sallallahu.
And if you look at it throughout the store, we have been learning about the blessing of the
that how this Quran is a Shiva this Quran is
and those who don't believe for them, it only increases them in Hassan in loss.
In today's lesson also we have learnt many characteristics of the Quran will be healthy under Now, what will happiness
and whether you believe in it or you don't believe in it, it's not going to make a difference because this is the truth.
And so we have been made to realize in the surah, about the value of this book of Allah,
that we must take it as a blessing and we must be grateful for it.
When is the person grateful for a blessing when he
uses it when he shares it, when he passes it on to others. And if a person just uses a blessing himself,
and he leaves it, and he moves on to other things is that gratitude, that's not gratitude. If you're really grateful for something that you have been given, you will never, ever leave it. In whatever situation of life you're in, no matter what you're doing in your life, you will always remain attached to it. And this is something that we all need to understand. And we all need to internalize that this Quran is a blessing and we can never leave it. If I have been grateful for the fact that there are other people who have helped me learn the Quran, then I should also help other people learn that
if I have benefited from the Quran, then I should also benefit others with this. And the example of the Bani Israel has been given again and again. Lebanese trade had been mentioned repeatedly at the beginning and the middle of the sort of towards the end of this sort of, to remind us that the money is starting, we're also given a scripture, but they did not give the hug to their scripture.
So we need to take a lesson from that and be grateful for this blessing. Use it and pass it on to others.
We see in the surah towards the end, that way is either in casaco is a means of increasing kosher. Quran is a means of increasing the humidity of people the humbleness or submissiveness so if we want to become more humble before Allah, what do we need to do?
What do we need to do? recite the Quran, listen to the Quran. And if we want the same to be in someone, what do we have to do? recite the Quran to them? every person's ability is different. every person's skills are different. So whatever skill ability Allah has given you use it
as LMR Mr.
King, I was just thinking that um, if we cannot recite out loud, the idea of love the words of Allah subhanaw taala in the household, you know, how yelling goes on? How can we use our own words to yell at others and people outside in here? are not Allah subhanaw taala so it's better than ours.
But if even the words of Allah, we cannot be allowed to disturb other people to offend them, then how can we use our words, especially foul words, to disturb other people to interfere in their privacy?
I was just thinking like, yesterday, we learned that in or unders, every detail for us to learn and then
and then I was just thinking that if we return, like how much do we return back to the origin and then it shows us that if we're really grateful to it, we're going to go back again, and then extract listen.
They want Allah has given us the detail with regards to everything that must have everything so that we can understand. Then what are we doing after understanding? Are we applying it? Are we passing it on to others?
So Chronicle Lohan will be bigger than Chateau La Ilaha Illa and the stockbroker wanted to be a Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
