Last weekend, Al Hamdulillah, you memorize the word to a translation of Surah, Al Fatiha And Alhamdulillah for some of you took only 10 to 15 minutes, some of you took half an hour and some people took more, and some people took even less than 15 minutes. Inshallah for the rest of this course, this is going to be your regular homework, what that you have to memorize the word to or translation of the lesson that we study. All right. So just because I don't say it doesn't mean you don't have that homework, it's something that is understood, Is it understood, it's clear to everyone, okay, and inshallah this homework will be reviewed where in the groups where your group in

00:00:33 --> 00:01:12

charge will listen to the word to or translation from you. Inshallah, you will also be taught as to how to memorize the word to word, Inshallah, some tips will be given about that as well. But just for now, what I want you to do is, as you sit down to memorize the word to word, what you do is that you take, if I take one verse at a time, look at the Arabic said out, just as I made you practice in class last week that you say out the Arabic word, then you say the translation. All right, say that for the entire idea. Repeat three or four times, then cover the translation, hide it with a piece of paper, you should have a big bookmark with you all the time in your juice with which you cover the

00:01:12 --> 00:01:51

translation. All right, and then you practice it on your own you test yourself, okay? Can you do that? Inshallah you can. And then finally, when you think you're good at it, then you open up the most half, which doesn't have any translation on it, okay? And then you test yourself. And if you want, have somebody else test you as well. Okay, now, how many times is it that you're required to read through the word toward in order to memorize it? A minimum of seven times, your homework is that you have to read the word to word with the intention to memorize how many times seven times just as I read it to you over here, once you have to do it at least seven times. That's minimum, if

00:01:51 --> 00:02:24

you want to do it more than that, you're more than welcome. So remember this, this is your homework as well. Your group in charge might ask you, how many times did you do your lesson? So what's the right answer? What should be the answer? Seven times and our hamdulillah because you have your class only twice a week, it shouldn't be that difficult, you can spread out in the sense that you can memorize do I add one day, the next two I add the other day, you know, another two I add the other day. So this way, throughout the week, you will have a constant connection with the Quran. And inshallah you will also be able to do your homework. And one more thing that I want you to do is

00:02:24 --> 00:03:03

this is also a part of your homework, which is that when you are memorizing the word to word, every time you do it once I want you to put a mark at the end of the lesson, just put like a small line, you did it once put a small line you did the second time put another small line you did three times put another small line four times five times six times seven times. So you should have seven small lines at the end of each lesson. Okay? Why? So that you know that you have done your homework? Okay, because it's quite possible. You thought you did it. But you didn't actually do it. And you look back and you see, oh my God, I've done this only five times. So you go over it again two times and

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

you complete your homework. Okay, so one thing that you have to do in homework is read it, read the word to word how many times, seven times. Secondly, you have to mark it as what that you've done it seven times. And thirdly, I also want you to listen to the recitation. Listen to the recitation of the IR that we are studying.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:39

A very good tip is that you listen to the recitation of the car, for example, from the beginning of the Quran, from certain fats all the way until we have learned Can you do that as well? Okay, let's continue. Okay. hamdulillah are with a bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:45

Salam al bakr is a Madani surah and Al Baqarah means

00:03:47 --> 00:04:28

the cow. The surah is named Al Baqarah. Why? Because it is named after the story of the cow and the Bani Israel which is mentioned in verses 67 to 73 of the surah Inshallah, we will study it in the first years. So the lokala was revealed after the Hijra. It's a Madani surah and I told you last time that McKee Surahs are those which were revealed before the hijra, and Madani sorrows are those which were revealed. After the Hijrah, so murky, muddy this division is not according to place, but rather it is according to the era the time and Sullivan Baccarat is the longest Surah of the Quran.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:59

It covers two and a half Jews and the surah has 286 verses, how many verses 286 It is a very long surah and as I mentioned to you earlier that the surah is Madani, remember that Madani sutras, they have certain quality, certain characteristics, which you will see very clearly in the Surah that first of all, Madani Surah speak about the commands the rulings

00:05:00 --> 00:05:46

All the things that the actions that Muslims are required to do. So, in certain Bacara, we will learn about lots of rules lots of laws about worship such as prayer, fasting Hajj. Similarly, there are also laws concerning family life, social life, Marriage Divorce. Similarly, there are also laws concerning financial matters buying and selling interest etcetera. So, money sources contain laws and inshallah we will be studying lots of laws in disorder. And muddly students are also longer, and this is why sort of Bacala is also very long. Now, Southern dakara is the longest Surah of the Quran, and it's also one of the most important Sutras of the Quran. We learned that the Prophet

00:05:46 --> 00:06:34

sallallahu sallam, he said, There are levels Surah Al Baqarah, learn Surah Al Baqarah there are level learning learn it Wi Fi in the hub Baraka Watarrka Hassan, because in learning it there is blessing and in ignoring it in leaving it, there is sorrow. So the one who learns the Surah, the one who studies the Surah, who learns it, he will find lots of blessings and a person who leaves it a person who ignores it, he will suffer from sorrow. He is deprived of a great fortune. The hadith continues the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that learn Surah Baqarah and surah. Earlier Imran Surah Ali Imran is a third Surah of the Quran learn both of these sorrows. Why? Because they are two

00:06:34 --> 00:07:21

lights. They are two lights and they will share their people on the Day of Resurrection just as two clouds or two spaces of shade or two lines of flying birds on the Day of Judgment Surah Al Baqarah and surah Allah Imran those people who learn who read who recite these two sutras, what will the sutras do they will come and give light to a person they will come and shade the person they will come in the form of two clouds or two lines of birds. And the Quran will come and intercede for the person who learns the Quran and part of that obviously is Surah dakara. Similarly, we learn in another Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said ledger aloo buta Kookaburra do not make your

00:07:21 --> 00:07:27

houses graveyards do not turn your homes into graveyards, how,

00:07:28 --> 00:07:45

if you think about it, a graveyard? Is it dead? If you go there, does it give you a dead feeling? There is no life, it may be very green, through there may be a lot of grass, there may be lots of flowers as well, but you just go there and you get this depressing, very sad feeling.

00:07:46 --> 00:08:03

It's as if there is no life over there. Whereas the very people are were under the ground on the surface of may appear to be very beautiful. So what does it mean by this lethargy or nobuta kookaburra. Do not make your houses graveyards. A house in which the Quran is not recited is like a graveyard.

00:08:04 --> 00:08:48

It's like a dead house. There is no life over there. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said do not make your houses into graveyards for NL beta lady Takara ofI Surah Al Baqarah Leia, the hula who shaped on the house in which Surah Al Baqarah is recited Chopin does not enter their shaytaan does not come over there. So what does it show to us this hadith that the house in which the Quran has recited the house in which brutal Bacala is recited that house is alive, the people of that house they are alive when the Quran is not recited over there it's like a graveyard and when the Quran is not recited over there then what's going to happen shape on will come if so, little Bukhara is read Chopin will

00:08:48 --> 00:08:52

go away. Is there a problem with having shape on around

00:08:53 --> 00:09:36

a big problem because we show up on in the show, Vana, law calm, I do want to do what I do, where he is our enemy. Just imagine having your enemy inside your house, having your enemy inside your house, are you safe, you're not safe at all. So inshallah We'll be there in your house, what's going to happen, there will be fights, there will be arguments, there will be sadness, they will be depression. A person may be in the most comfortable houses when it comes to material things, but he may not find any happiness, any peace in that house. Why? What's missing? The Quran is missing. What's missing? Surah Al Baqarah is missing. So if you're getting that feeling that when it's time

00:09:36 --> 00:09:59

to go home, you're like, I don't want to go home. I'd rather go to the mall. I'd rather go to my friend's house. I just don't want to go home. You need to recite to the Bukhara in your house. You need to recite it. Similarly, if you feel that you're having lots of problems with your family members, whether it's your children or it's your husband, or it's your in laws or it's your siblings, whoever is living with you, you feel that you're having problems with them.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:38

There is miscommunication misunderstanding and as a result, people are not at good terms and what should we do recite through to Bukhara because these problems are a result of what Chevron being extremely active, so you need to expel Chevron from your house and in order to do that what you have to do recite Surah Baqarah So, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said lethargy or LuBu Utopium Quran don't make your houses into graveyards. So inshallah let's all practices let's read through the Bukhara in our houses. Let's listen to the recitation of Surah Baqarah in our houses and as you are doing your work toward memorizing your lesson. Keep this in mind as well as your reciting the ayat

00:10:38 --> 00:10:58

practicing your theory. Keep this in mind and read it out loud. Share the meaning with the people of your house, so that even they can benefit you're not the only person who's benefiting. So let's begin this practice inshallah. Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim. lf Lam Meem What did these letters mean? Alif Lam mean?

00:10:59 --> 00:11:02

Have you heard of these letters before? Have you

00:11:04 --> 00:11:26

there are many suitors of the Quran. So the surah trc sort of earlier one, how many massage that there are many many Surah of the Quran that begin with these roof? These roof Alif Lam meme? or elsewhere you learn how mean? I insane cough sod yesI bah ha these roof what are they? They are part of the Arabic alphabet.

00:11:28 --> 00:12:10

Arabic alphabet they live better third gene Powercore. So these letters are part of peripheral hija the Arabic alphabet. And these rules they are written together. As you see over here, lamb and meme are joined together. So these rules are written together. However they are read separately. You don't read the letters together. For example, when you look at the word Al hamdu you join a live and lamb you say Al you don't say LF lamb when you see the word hand what do you do you connect how many Mandel use a hammer you don't say how I mean dal isn't itself but when it comes to these rules, how do you read them? Separately, you don't read them together. This is why these haruf they are known

00:12:10 --> 00:12:54

as Halluf Mocha. Mocha from the word kata Kata is to cut something. So mocha para, the disjointed letters, the letters that are cut up, meaning when you're reading them, you read them one by one, not together in the form of a word. Now what are these Haruka thoughts, these hurdles Nakata, the scholars have different concerning them, concerning their meaning concerning their wisdom. And there are many, many opinions out there. But if you look at all of these opinions, they can be summarized into four. I'm telling you these meetings because people have superstitious beliefs concerning these hurdles, which is why sometimes they will write them and they will hang them in their house, or they

00:12:54 --> 00:13:27

will read them over and over again. Or they will think that they have a particular meaning. So anyway, when you look at these opinions that are there, they can be summarized into four. First of all, it is said that these are not they have a meaning. Some have said that these hurdles, they mean some of the names of Allah subhanaw taala, or the name of the Surah, or something like that. Secondly, it has been said that these rules, they are of the Arabic alphabet, and they don't have a meaning. When you read the Arabic alphabet, do those alphabet have a meaning? Do those letters have a meaning they don't. Similarly these rules also do not have a meaning. Thirdly, in a sense that

00:13:27 --> 00:14:04

these letters these hurdles, they have a meaning, but we don't know about it, who knows about it. Allah knows about it. We don't know about it. And fourthly, it is also said that these rules, we don't speculate anything concerning them. We don't say whether they have a meaning or they don't have a meaning. No, we just pause right here, we just stop right here. When it comes to these rules. We only recite them, we don't delve into what their meaning is whether they have a meaning or they don't have a meaning. So these are four opinions out of all of these opinions. The strongest one seems to be the second one, which is that these hurdles, what are they have Ruhija ear? They are

00:14:04 --> 00:14:24

Arabic alphabet, and because of that they don't have any meaning. You don't translate them just as the letter Jeem does it have a meaning? No, the letter cat does it have a meaning? No. Similarly, Alif Lam mean? Literally, these letters do not have a meaning. But a person may wonder how could there be something meaningless in the book of Allah?

00:14:25 --> 00:15:00

Isn't it you could wonder that how could there be something meaningless in the book of Allah? The fact is that these letters, they don't have a meaning. However, they have a purpose to have a reason there's a reason why they are placed in the book of Allah subhanaw taala. There's a wisdom behind that. All right, and what's that wisdom? scholars have suggested that these rules they point out they show the miraculous nature of the Quran. We know that the Quran is a miracle. How is the Quran a miracle? Allah subhanaw taala challenges the people in the Quran try to produce some

00:15:00 --> 00:15:44

thing like the Quran, the Arabs, people who are most eloquent in the Arabic language was familiar with that language. None of them was able to bring anything even similar to the Quran, even close to it. So these hurdles, if you think about it, what are these hurdles? The truth that people speak the letters that people use, the sounds that people use and everything about the Quran has been revealed in which letters in which words in which sounds the sounds that people utter the words that people speak, the letters that people use, so in the same letters and words the Quran has been revealed yet the people cannot produce anything that is like the Quran. People use Alif Lam Meem all the time,

00:15:44 --> 00:16:19

isn't it? So you use a sound or you use the sound law? You use a sound ma all the time. But is any human being capable of producing anything like the Quran? Impossible? No way. So these letters Alif Lam mean? What do they do this hello ma Katara they show the miraculous nature of the Quran which is why we see that always these proof, they appear at the beginning of the sutras, and right after them comes in either which exalts the status of the Quran directly or indirectly

00:16:20 --> 00:16:34

exalts the status of the Quran. Because these rules are reminding us that this Quran is a miracle. So with this in mind, let's begin the surah and if lamb beam Alif Lam Meem.

00:16:35 --> 00:17:23

This Kurama is of Allah subhanaw taala you use the same letters, but you cannot produce anything like it. So this is not the word of a human being. This is the word of who? Allah then he can kita boo. This is the book loughrea Buffy, in which is no doubt this book that you're reading this book, the Quran is a book in which there is no doubt and what is it? It is who the linworth Again, it is a guidance for who those people who have Taqwa the word lanica means that and it's used to point out to something just as the word this or that in the English language, what do we use it for? Point out to something this is used for that which is near and that we use to point towards what that which is

00:17:23 --> 00:18:00

far. So similarly Zelicah means that and it's used to point out to something that is far, so then he can Kitab that is the book. Why is that being used to show the exalted status of Quran because when something is far, it could be far in the sense that it's far away from you or because it's exalted. It's higher compared to you, it's above you. So Valley, Calcutta, that book, this is a book and the book what does this book refer to the Quran? The word Kitab is from the root letters, gaff the birth.

00:18:02 --> 00:18:45

And cap means January together something to collect kita is used for a book. Why book? Because what do you have in a book, lots of words, lots of letters, lots of messages, lots of concepts combined together, joined together put together this is what a book is, isn't it? So you may find a document here or there. But when you see your book, a lot has been put together. So this is what a key tab is. And remember that the word key tab also gives the meaning of writing. So that equal key tab that is the book meaning this Quran is a book. Now I have a question for you, when the Quran was being revealed to the Prophet salallahu Salam. Did the people have the Quran in a book form like we have?

00:18:46 --> 00:18:50

No, they didn't have it. So why is the Quran called kita them

00:18:53 --> 00:19:22

very good that the Quran is Akita it's originally Akita and at the time when this was being revealed Yes, it was not in a book form it's written were in the low hurl Marvel's it's written with Allah subhanaw taala. In the low hood muffle in total brooch is 21 to 22 Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, who are Quran Majeed? Philo him, my fools. Similarly, it's called kitab. Why? Because it's written in the Soho foil mocha Rama with the angels.

00:19:23 --> 00:19:54

So it's written with Allah subhanaw taala. It's written with the angels as well instead of the obasa 12 to 16 we learn from insha Allah Cora feel sort of in Mocha aroma model for our teen moto Hora be at Sephora Kia Arman, Bharara that whoever wills may remember it, meaning may take a lesson from the Quran which is recorded in honored sheet it's recorded where in honor cheats that are exalted and purified, and who has these sheets by the hands of the messenger angels that are noble and dutiful.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:59

So the Quran is called kita because it's written with Allah. It's written with the angels and it's

00:20:00 --> 00:20:49

also written with who with us in the most hurt that you have. So then he Calcutta, this book this Quran How does Allah describe it? loughrea Buffy in it there is no doubt at all right what does right mean? Doubt and rabies from the root letters raw yet but Ray was used for doubt, there is another word that is used for doubt in the Arabic language which is check, check is altered doubt, rave is such a doubt that makes a person unsettled. That takes the peace of mind away from a person I mean, he's not settled at all. He's restless, he's constantly debating constantly debating, should I do this, should I not do this, he is not able to trust what he wants to do. He is not able to

00:20:49 --> 00:21:35

trust the other person. He is doubtful, and that's taking his piece away. He cannot leave it he cannot ignore it. So there you go. Kitab loughrea Buffy Allah says this is a book in which there is no doubt. What does it mean by this that there is no doubt in the Quran? There is no doubt in the fact that this Quran is from Allah. There is no doubt about the contents of this Quran meaning every single statement in this book, what is it? It is factual? It is reality. It's not doubtful at all. So there is no doubt in the fact that it has been sent down by Allah. There is no doubt in the fact that this Quran is factual. Nothing incorrect. is in this book, every statement in this book, what

00:21:35 --> 00:21:51

is it? Accurate? Correct, truthful, reliable, you can trust it, you can take it as it is. So there we go. Kita will know a Buffy Why do you think Allah subhanaw taala be begins this surah

00:21:52 --> 00:22:03

with the introduction to the Quran, and the first description that is given up the Quran is that there is no doubt about why do you think so? Is it necessary to note that this Quran is free of doubt.

00:22:04 --> 00:22:45

As human beings, we become doubtful. And many times it happens that we doubt other people. And when we doubt other people, we doubt what we read. We're doubting some news. We're doubting the news that we're hearing or we're reading, what happens? Can you benefit? You cannot benefit? Can you be at peace? No, you cannot be at peace can answer your questions. It cannot answer your questions. So in order to fully benefit from something, what do you need to have trust and confidence? So when Allah says there Likkle Kitab Allah Buffy what's the purpose that as you study this book, have trust, have confidence that what you're reading is factual. What you're reading is 100% true, what you're

00:22:45 --> 00:23:30

reading what you're studying is 100% beneficial, there Likkle Kitab will now receive a fee. So this gives assurance to the listener. This gives peace of mind to the listener that have no fear, no bias, so that you can benefit from this book. And this book, Allah subhanaw taala says it is who the little motor clean it is a guidance. It is a guidance for who for those people who have the with the cleaners, Florida, Motoki, and Mata Ki is one who has Taqwa is from the roots that has well off yeah, well off yeah, you don't see the well. But as I told you earlier that there are some letters that are part of the route but you don't always see them why inshallah you will learn about that as

00:23:30 --> 00:24:14

well. So it's from the router as well. Coffea and we call is to save yourself to take a shield to protect yourself. Who is Motoki? Mata Ki is someone who has taken a shield in order to protect himself in order to save himself from something that is dangerous from something that is harmful. You understand who he is who is Mottaki, someone who has taken a shield in order to protect himself. For example, if you go to Hajj, you go to umbra. Let's say you go to Roma in the month of Ramadan, 1000s of people 1000s of people, hundreds and 1000s of people you could imagine if one person catches a cold, if one person catches a viral infection, what's going to happen? Is it going to stay

00:24:14 --> 00:24:49

with him? It's going to spread everywhere. Now if you want to protect yourself, then what are you going to do? Before going you might take a flu shot. When you go there, you might become very, very careful with how you interact with other people. For example, you keep washing your hands. When you eat something, you make sure it's not contaminated. You become extremely careful in where you sit, who you sit next to for example, if a person is coughing a lot sneezing a lot you don't go near them. Why? Because you're afraid I spent all that money so that I can worship Allah subhanaw taala I cannot afford to get sick. So you become careful.

00:24:50 --> 00:24:59

Similarly, if a person has some food allergy, or some food sensitivity, they cannot have certain foods if they have them. They can cause a lot

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

of harm to their body. So they become extremely careful about what they eat isn't at all. They become extremely careful about what they eat, they check all the ingredients, they go to somebody's house, they ask them, Did you put any nuts in this? Did you put any dairy in this if you did, I cannot have it because I'm allergic to such and such, my child is allergic to such and such I cannot have it, a person becomes extremely careful.

00:25:26 --> 00:26:05

So Motoki is who? Someone who is very careful. Now, okay, there is a person who is trying to protect himself because he has a food allergy, there is another person who wants to protect himself because there's a viral infection going on. Now this person looks tacky. What is he trying to save himself from? Murthy is a person who is trying to save himself from the punishment of Allah, from loss from failure from punishment in the hereafter. So if a person wants to save himself from the punishment of the Hereafter, he will become careful how in the way that he lives in this dunya in the way that he behaves in this dunya How will he become careful in what way

00:26:06 --> 00:26:51

that first of all, he will do what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded? Because when a person does what Allah has commanded, then that is a means of protection from punishment. And secondly, he will stay away from what Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden, because if he commits the forbidden, then what's going to happen? He is guilty when he's guilty. He is deserving of punishment. So who is McDuffie? What's the definition of McDuffie? The one who has taken shield protection from what? The punishment of Allah? How? By doing what Allah has commanded and staying away from what Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden? So over here, Allah says, then he can keytab this Quran is a book in

00:26:51 --> 00:26:55

which there is no doubt that this Quran is a guidance for who

00:26:56 --> 00:27:38

and what the clean in certain Fatiha we made to our to Allah subhanaw taala at dinner sauropod mustard to guide us to the Straight Way. Allah subhanaw taala shows us guidance over here. Where's guidance? Where's it contained? In this book of Allah? If you want guidance, yes you make do offer it but you also put in effort for it. In order to attain guidance, what do you have to do? study the book of Allah. But in order to benefit from the book of Allah, what do you have to do? You have to have this quality of Taqwa because ALLAH says who the limiter clean. This also shows to us that the purpose of this book is what to show guidance. The purpose of this book is not just to impart

00:27:38 --> 00:28:24

knowledge, impart information. If you want information, you can get it from many, many sources. But if you want guidance, you get it from the Quran. However, this guidance is not received by everyone who studies this book, everyone who reads this book, who can receive guidance from this book, The person who has the Aqua, this is very similar to how merely reading a book on time management does not make you efficient in managing your time. merely reading a book on healthy eating does not make you a person who is healthy, isn't it so many reading a book on writing well, does not make you an excellent writer. First step is that you read the book. But along with reading the book, you have to

00:28:24 --> 00:29:03

do certain things. If you don't do those certain things, then reading that book was useless. It will not bring you any benefit at all. Like for example, there are some people who want to become more efficient in their business who want to become more efficient in their skills. So they read one book after the other, but you see no change in them. Why? Because they're reading the books and they're putting them away. They're not implementing anything. They're not benefiting from the book. So in order to benefit from the Quran, we have to have these qualities we have to have the quality of Taqwa. If we don't have this quality of taqwa, then this study will be useless. The study of the

00:29:03 --> 00:29:17

Quran will be useless reading of the Quran will not bring any benefit to a person, their legal Kitab will already Buffy who then lil Mota clean. Now, we learned that one of the companions, he asked another companion what is the core?

00:29:19 --> 00:29:59

So he responded to him that have you ever taken a path between thorny bushes? Have you ever tried to go through thorny bushes? So he said, Yes. So you asked him that. What did you do? How did you pass through those thorny bushes? He said, I gathered in my cloths and I became careful. I collected my cloths together and I became very careful in how I was walking that any Thorn I saw any part of the bush that I saw coming my way, I avoided it. I stayed away from it. I collected myself even more. Like for example, if you have to go through the classroom right now through the middle. And if you have something big with you, how will you walk casually. If you walk casually, you're going to hurt

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

other people.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:51

So how will you walk with care and attention, you will keep your bag close to you. You will keep your stuff with you, you will hold your jacket closer, you will hold your bio closer. Right? You will become more conscious and alert of your surroundings of every step you take. This is who a motor key is a motor key person does not live a heedless life. A motor key person lives a conscious life alert. He is alert about his surroundings. And he is alert about what he's doing what he's saying. Meaning that he has certain rules to live by, he will not just follow his desires. I don't feel like waking up right now. So I will sleep. This is not a mythical person with the key person is

00:30:51 --> 00:30:55

who even if he wants to sleep, it's time to pray he will get up.

00:30:56 --> 00:31:01

He's careful. Why? Because he wants to save himself from punishment in the hereafter.

00:31:03 --> 00:31:44

Similarly, a Motoki person is he who is very careful about what he puts in his mouth. I'm hungry, I don't care. I'm just gonna go get this food and I'm going to eat it. No, he's going to be careful. What is it made with? What are the ingredients? Is it halal? Is it haram? What is it is it lawful for me to even eat it? So he will become more careful why he wants to save himself from the punishment in the hereafter. Similarly, a Motoki person is not one who just says whatever he feels like, or yells whenever he wants to backbite whenever he wants to know, he becomes careful in his speech as well. Why? Because he's afraid of the punishment of Allah. So who was with the key? How

00:31:44 --> 00:32:24

can you understand a multi person alert, conscious, careful, responsible? This is who Motoki is a person who is concerned about his well being about his safety. A person who wants to be successful, there are some people who live their life very carefully, in a very alert manner. And when they live their life very carefully, they're concerned about where they're getting their money from, how they plan to be successful, how they plan to make money, like for example, if a person wants to be successful in his career, he will make sure that he studies well he has a good degree, he makes a good resume and then he applies in different places and when he will put that effort in inshallah he

00:32:24 --> 00:33:06

will get somewhere. But if there is a person who barely did his undergrad, and he's just sitting with his results, he's not working on improving his resume. He's not working on getting another certification or applying for a job trying to get promoted, will he get anywhere, he will not get anywhere. So a Motoki is who, someone who wants to get the best out of his life. This is why he's conscious. This is why he's alert about what he says what he eats, what he does, where he goes, what he listens to, this is who he is. So, a person who wants to be successful. A person who wants to live a meaningful life, a person who is alert and conscious, Allah subhanaw taala says this person

00:33:06 --> 00:33:48

will find guidance where in the book of Allah, He will find guidance in the book of Allah Valley, Calcutta will now leave a fee and there is no doubt in this book, who the Lynmouth again, it's a guide for those people who have Taqwa. Now, over here we see that Allah subhanaw taala says we're dealing with Turkey. Now do we not understand this that Quran is a guidance for all people? Isn't it so? Isn't that what we have been told from the very beginning of Quran is guidance for everybody? Yes, because Allah subhanaw taala himself also says that in total Bukhara i 185 Allah says Sharona Madonna lady unzila feel Quran, who then only nurse this Quran it is guidance for people in this

00:33:48 --> 00:34:09

Quran is guidance for who for all mankind, what are we here we see who the little Motoki it has been narrowed down to who those people who have Taqwa This is not a contradiction, remember that he dire guidance is of two types. I told you earlier as well. One type of today is he died off it shared he died off.

00:34:10 --> 00:34:55

So when it comes to all people, yes, they can get it shared. They can get knowledge from where from the Quran. If a person wants to know about Prophet new Hurley Salam, can he find some information from the Quran? Yes, he can. If a person wants to know about what foods are Muslims allowed to eat and what they're not allowed to eat? Can he find this information from the Quran? Yes, he can. Okay, so one type of guidance is he Dyer of ishod he they have and in this sense, the Quran has guidance for all people. All right. In this sense, Quran is guidance for who all mankind, all people, whether he believes or he doesn't believe whether he's Motoki or he's not importantly

00:34:56 --> 00:34:59

the second type of guidance is which one he died off to feed

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

As he dives off, when a person is given the ability to act on the knowledge to benefit from the knowledge when that information turns into real knowledge when it becomes a part of the person, it's not just information that he has recorded, but rather he internalizes that information so he lives by it. You understand? This hidayah of armor is only for who? For those people who have

00:35:27 --> 00:36:10

when it comes to knowledge, any person can gain information from the Quran, when it comes to truly benefiting from that information, who can benefit? What do we learn from this is a hidden little motor cane. It's a guidance for who for those people who have the car. So the first type of vidiians today is shad and the second type of Dias hidayah. They'll feel when a person is given the ability to act on the knowledge Allah subhanaw taala says is what firstly, I have 40 for all who a little Edina one who then was Schieffer that say this Quran is a guidance and a cure for those people who believe for those people who believe this Quran is a cure. But for those people who don't believe

00:36:10 --> 00:36:14

this Quran is not a cure for them, they will not benefit.

00:36:15 --> 00:36:25

So if a person wants to truly benefit from this Quran then what does he need to do? He needs to have taqwa, who then will move the cane.

00:36:27 --> 00:36:29

It's a guidance for those people who have Taqwa.

00:36:30 --> 00:36:34

Now, before we move on, I want you to reflect on this.

00:36:35 --> 00:36:38

I want you to read this if everybody together

00:36:39 --> 00:36:40

from the beginning

00:36:41 --> 00:36:42

Alif Lam Meem.

00:36:44 --> 00:36:46

Then he colicky terrible.

00:36:48 --> 00:36:50

Laura Eber fee he

00:36:51 --> 00:36:53

who then lil Muth again,

00:36:55 --> 00:37:25

what do you understand? Then he Calcutta? Allah subhanaw taala uses the word there Lika. And then he goes to point out to something that is far or exalted in its status. What does it show to us that this Quran is the great book? It's a very noble book, it's a very exalted book. It's a very special book. What does this show to us? That if this book is great, then a person who holds on to this book, will he become great?

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

Will he Yes? If this Quran is very respectable, then a person who holds on to this book will he become respectable? Yes.

00:37:38 --> 00:37:44

If this Quran is exalted, than a person who holds on to the Quran, will he become exalted? Yes.

00:37:46 --> 00:37:51

If a person wants to become successful in this dunya in the axilla,

00:37:52 --> 00:38:06

then what does he need to do? Hold on to this exalted book? Hold on to this prestigious book, if a person wants to become very prestigious, what do they do? They live in a prestigious house. There are certain standards that people have created.

00:38:07 --> 00:38:50

If you want to be of the elite, if you want to be great, if you want to stand out, then don't just carry any bag, don't just wear any shoes, why are you going to Walmart go to this particular store? Right? Get a Coach bag, get a Louis Vuitton bag, right? This is what you should carry. So in this dunya, also, we have made standards for ourselves that if you want to be exalted, then you have to wear a certain thing, you have to go to a certain place, right? We say don't go to the store, go to this particular huge, big mall. Why are you going to this small grocery store, go to this expensive grocery store, go to this, you know, new organic store. So this is how we look at this dunya as

00:38:50 --> 00:39:30

well. If you want to become exalted, you have to hold on to exalted things. If you want to have a good resume, you don't just go to any other college, you go to a good university. If you want to go high up there, then you must have those things which show that great status. So if a person wants to become great and successful, he wants to get distinction in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala in this dunya India, what must he hold on to the book of Allah? Because his book is great, then he called kitab. Then Allah says lovely Buffy, there is no doubt in it. There is no doubt in the book of Allah. What do you learn from this? What comes to your mind? What do you understand? When you

00:39:30 --> 00:39:36

hear loud Are you Buffy there is no doubt in this book. What do you understand?

00:39:37 --> 00:40:00

When there is nothing doubtful in this book, when there is nothing doubtful about this book, then what does it mean? We have to take this book seriously. If for example, you want to get a book on cooking, you want to get good recipes. What will you get just any book that has beautiful pictures in it? Will you get any book No you

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

We'll look at the book and you will say best seller tried and tested recipes. And perhaps you will read somebody's remarks or somebody's comments concerning that book, maybe perhaps a very successful chef or a nutritionist, you will read a comment or two and you will say, okay, these recipes are good, this is something that I need and then you will buy that book, isn't it? But if it's an ordinary book, no reviews, nothing are you going to take that book? Not at all. Similarly, you want to get a book on self improvement, how to improve yourself, you want to develop some of your skills, will you just buy any book? Will you just go read anything? No, what will you get? For example, you

00:40:38 --> 00:41:12

will get Stephen Covey. Right, you will get renowned authors their books, you will get best sellers. Why? Because when you read bestsellers, when you read a comment that was given a New York Times, for example, that gives you trust and confidence, then you will benefit. Similarly, this Quran Allah says lovely Buffy, he, everything is factual in this book, have no doubt have no fear, have no worry, this is the key. This is what will lead you to success loudly, Buffy. Nothing doubtful at all.

00:41:13 --> 00:41:49

And it's very, very important that as we study this book, we must remove all doubts from our mind and heart. All doubts, because if a person has doubts, then what will happen? He will be biased, his vision will be blurry, he will not be able to benefit. For example, if you don't trust an author, and you're reading their book, you're gonna doubt every other state you're gonna be like, yeah, right. How is it possible? It's not true. What's their evidence? Is there any study that supports it? Is there any research that supports it? You won't just take it and believe in it. But Allah subhanaw taala says that Nikhil Kitab will earn you a fee. Every statement in this book is true. You

00:41:49 --> 00:42:03

don't need a study to prove it. You don't need any research to prove it. Why? Because this book is from WHO? Allah subhanaw taala who is the Lord of the Worlds? This is why loudly Buffy there's no doubt in it.

00:42:04 --> 00:42:50

And then Allah says who the lil McKean it is a guidance for who those people who have Taqwa That's the condition, if we want to benefit from the book of Allah, what quality must we have? The core that we should become careful, we should become conscious, we should become alert. And how is it that a person can become alert and conscious? more conscious when he remembers? Allah subhanaw taala when he remembers the last day when he remembers the accountability in the Hereafter, this is what brings the Aqua who the Linwood Ducane who are the moutain Allah subhanaw taala describes them further in the following if these are the qualities that the moutain have, I want you to understand

00:42:50 --> 00:43:34

what the clean very clearly, it's very important. Because who doesn't matter when I told you the two types of die right here, they are very limited. I have the key to knowledge, the key to action, what is it? The core, the fear of Allah? When a person wants to protect themselves? Do they educate themselves? Yes, they do. I have a friend who has a dairy allergy, her and her son also both of them have a dairy allergy, she cannot have acidic food, her son cannot have acidic food. And she's very concerned about eating healthy, eating, good, fresh, organic, so on and so forth. So she's extremely careful about what she buys what she eats, what she feeds her son. And when you talk to her, she

00:43:34 --> 00:43:57

will tell you so many things, so many benefits of you know certain foods, or so many harmful effects of certain chemicals because she has educated herself. She wants to protect herself and her son. This is why she has educated herself so much about food and nutrition. So this is very true. When a person wants to protect themselves. What do they do? They gain knowledge.

00:43:59 --> 00:44:34

Taqwa is the key to alien. And Taqwa is also the key to our harmony. When a person wants to protect themselves, they're serious about protecting themselves, then only they will do something. You can tell a person don't drink soda all the time. Don't eat this food all the time. It's not good for you. It's unhealthy. They won't listen to you. Even if they see the harmful effects. They will not listen to you they will still eat unhealthy food, why? They're not concerned about saving themselves about protecting themselves. They're not concerned about living a healthier life. Because if they were concerned if they were careful, if they were afraid, then what would they do? They will do

00:44:34 --> 00:44:46

armor. Set Aqua is also the key to action. The core therefore is a key to success. And only a person who's serious about saving himself in the hereafter will benefit from the Quran.

00:44:47 --> 00:44:59

So we all must develop this quality in ourselves as well. That we all must become with the key. If we want to benefit from the book of Allah. We must have this book

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

burning desire, desire to really improve, to really change ourselves to really become better in the sight of Allah to really benefit people to become successful in the hereafter to not just get by in the Hereafter, but to be in the highest levels of paradise, if we have this desire, if we have this yearning then we will benefit from the book of Allah if we don't have this yearning, then what will happen? We will study and this will be over and no change will come. Because it happens people say, I know so and so, they have studied the Quran, look at them, they talk in this way, look at them, they behave in this way look at them, they do such and such, why is it so, there is no desire to

00:45:35 --> 00:45:56

change there is no desire to protect oneself. A person may have earned but he can only have armor when he wants good for himself. So what is good for yourself? Let this journey be meaningful let this journey be beneficial for yourself and also for those people who are with you. We will listen to the recitation of these if

00:45:57 --> 00:46:01

this means your Walkman you're walking

00:46:03 --> 00:46:04


00:46:11 --> 00:46:17
