00:00:00 --> 00:00:18

When it comes to the different things that we do in life, you can categorize them into three types of things that we do. First type of actions are those which are wajib, those which are an obligation on us, because either Allah has commanded us to do that, or because we have promised someone, we are going to do it. So it is an obligation on us to do it.

00:00:19 --> 00:00:58

The second type of actions that we do are Mr have meaning it's preferred, it's good if we do it, because it has a lot of reward. And we have the opportunity, we can do it. And the third type of actions are those which are mobile, meaning you do them or you don't do them, no big deal. It's up to you. Now with regards to actions that are Wajid, what happens to those, they always take priority. They always take priority, no matter what's happening, you have to stop whatever you're doing, and you're going to do that, which is why I drip on you. So for example, when it comes to your class, is it why'd you how? Because we have made a commitment. So when we have made a

00:00:58 --> 00:01:38

commitment that we're going to come to this class, then what happens? This takes priority unless obviously, there's something like sickness or something major that is preventing you. Secondly, actions that are most the hub, it's preferable if you do it. So. Does that take priority? Yes, whenever you are able to, it does take priority, but whenever you're able to, but if you have two things, Mr. Hub, and why did you then what are you supposed to do? Why are you so for example, you have the opportunity to go to your friend's house or to come to class, what should you do? Come to your class, okay? When it comes to MOBA, then what? You do it if you want to, and if you don't do it

00:01:38 --> 00:02:11

if you don't want to, but again, if there is a logic in contrast to it, and what do you do? Do the watch and not the mobile? So now we understand this rule? Yes, if an action is worship, and we don't do it or be held accountable for it, yes, we are. Because we have given our word. So it's like an Amana. It's like a promise. And if we break that promise, if we fall short in fulfilling it, are we not held accountable? Yes, we are. Similarly salah, performing the prayer is a larger bonus. Yes, if we don't create are we held accountable? Yes, we are.

00:02:12 --> 00:02:13

Okay, let's begin our lesson.

00:02:14 --> 00:02:20

With the bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. I am number 121

00:02:21 --> 00:03:10

alladhina Atay. Now, Hamid Kitab those people to whom we have given the book, what do they do? Your Cloner, who they recited hochkar Tilawat. He as is the right of reciting it. They recited as it should be recited. And such people hula Iike those are the ones who you may know NaVi, they actually believe in the book when the yoke for B and whoever denies it whoever denies the book for Hola, Erica homall Ha Simone, then it is those people who are the losers. In this verse, we learn that there are some people who recite the book. And there are others who don't. Those people who recite the book as it should be recited, what does Allah say about them? That those are the ones who

00:03:10 --> 00:03:59

actually believe in the book. And as for those who reject it, those who refuse it? What's their end, Hassan failure, complete loss in this world as well as in the hereafter. AlLadhina attina Home attina is from the real actress Hamza, yeah. Atta is to give, what does it mean to give something so it now we gave, meaning Allah has given Allah has given to home them? What did he give them? Al Kitab? What is that Kitab referring to the revealed scripture, the Scripture the book that Allah has revealed? What are the different books that Allah subhanaw taala has revealed? The Torah, the Injeel, the Cebu, the Quran, and perhaps others as well that we do not know off. So Al Kitab over

00:03:59 --> 00:04:31

here refers to all of the books that Allah has revealed any book that Allah has revealed. So the book which Allah has given to the people, there are some people who yet Luna who they recite it, how do they recited halka Tilawat he, as it should be recited yet Luna who is from the root letters, tr lamb Well, ta lamb well tell you or tell you literally is to follow. What does it mean to follow from the same root as the word tilava. And what is still our mean?

00:04:32 --> 00:05:00

recitation. What's the connection between recitation and following the recitation of Scripture, the recitation of the revealed book for that type of recitation, the word tilava is used. Why? Because in this recitation, every letter, every word is joined with the next every letter every word is joined with the next. So for example, when we recite the Quran how to recite it, we connect all the letters we connect all the words together. That's what you have to take

00:05:00 --> 00:05:42

A big breath before you start reciting a part of an aisle or an entire aisle, then another connection between following and recitation is that the recitation of the Scripture is very different from the reading of other books. How, when it comes to the recitation of the Scripture, or you just read it, and forget about it, and not do anything about it, know, whatever you read, whatever you come to know, you are obligated to observe it, you are obligated to follow it, follow it up with what with action. But when it comes to other books, you can read them, and you can disagree with them. You can read them, and you may forget them, it's okay no big deal, you won't be

00:05:42 --> 00:06:28

held accountable. You can read them, and you can not do anything about it. But when it comes to the book of Allah, the religion that Allah has revealed, then when you read it, then you have to follow it up. Follow it up with what with your action. And you can never follow what you read with action unless and until you understand it. So till our recitation, what kind of recitation Is it done? Correct recitation, proper recitation of the words, properly reading meaning understanding the words, and thirdly, following it up by action as well. So you know, know who they recited, they recite the Scripture, how do they recite it? How cathedra what he helped, what does he mean, right?

00:06:28 --> 00:07:19

Correct. So as the book should be recited, as it should be read, Allah says una Iike. You mean wannabe? Those are the ones who actually believe in it, who truly believe in the book, who are the ones who truly believe in the book whose Eman in the book is right? Who are those people? They are the ones who read the book as it should be read. When it comes to the tilava of the book, there are three things in it. First of all, this includes Dilawar to love the recitation of the words. So if a person studies the meaning of the book, but never recites the Quran, does not recite the words of the Quran. Is he doing Hakata? Gravity? No. The first thing is what Tila to love reciting the words

00:07:19 --> 00:08:02

of the book. And that is done how, by reciting the book correctly reciting the verses correctly. How can you recite correctly? When can you do that? If you don't know how to read Arabic? Can you recite the Quran correctly? No. If you don't know about the rules of the dream at all, can you recite the book correctly? No, you can't. So in order to do till our two loves correctly, what is important for us to know, we must learn the correct pronunciation, the melodic as well as the dweet the rules of the recitation. And this is the reason why we have the recitation class where we are making you read the words pronounced them with your own mouth, right? Say them out, listen to yourself, listen to

00:08:02 --> 00:08:42

those around you. Because you have to recite the book. That's the first right. So Tilawat on loves. Secondly, is delightful. The reading of the meaning what does it mean by that? Meaning knowing understanding the meaning of the words as well, not that a person is reciting, and memorizing but he has absolutely no idea as to what he is reading, would you ever read a text and you have no idea but what it means. If a person did that, once you laugh at them, for example, there is a person and they don't know anything about English, and they're trying to connect all the letters together, and they're trying to pronounce the words all broken up, and they have no idea about what they're

00:08:42 --> 00:09:28

reading. What would you do when you see them? Would you have a good laugh at them? Many times we would unfortunately. But if you think about it, we do the same thing with the book of Allah. We read the verses, we read the sources, but do we know the meaning? Do we understand it? Not always. So how can we allow it the second thing that is included in this is knowing the meaning, when a person is reciting, he keeps the meaning in mind. He thinks about he reflects on what he is reading, he must understand what he is reading. So this is what that I've seen the explanation of the verses. And this means that when a text of the Quran is understood, it is understood correctly. It is understood

00:09:28 --> 00:09:40

correctly in the way that Allah subhanaw taala meant it. Many times people will say well, there are so many interpretations of the Quran out there. How do you know the one that you're studying is right. Have you heard that?

00:09:41 --> 00:09:59

Many people have asked me this question. Many people, how do you know that the FSI that you are studying is right, because there are so many other interpretations out there. How do we know? Do you have any answer to that objection? That we look at the Hadith of the Prophet Surah Lourdes and we look at the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu

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

I'm How did he explain the Quran? How did he act on the Quran? How did he tell the Sahaba to act on the Quran. So that is the way that we interpret the Quran any other way that we can determine the correct interpretation of the text of the Quran, what's the best way of understanding any text,

00:10:18 --> 00:11:02

you understand the words of the text in the language that it is in, you always look at the words what they mean you put the words together and then you understand what the sentence means. And whatever text it is the beginning the ending has to be coherent, and you connect parts of it with other parts, you put all of it together and that is how you understand it correctly. So similarly, the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala has revealed the Quran in what language in the Arabic language, Allah says be listening or begin will be in clear Arabic language. This is what the Quran has been revealed. And so if a person even looks at the Arabic text of the Quran, and understands it in

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

Arabic, looking at the correct meanings, looking at the context, the meaning will be clear. This is how Allah has preserved the meaning of his book. So the second thing which is in jeopardy, Laverty is understanding the Quran the verses correctly, and how will that be done? By the correct of seer and how is correct if you're done that you look at the Arabic text, you look at the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you explain parts of the Quran with other parts all right. The third thing that is included in HEPA Tilawat T is did our to hook them following the hook of the command, which command the command that you read in the text. So in other words, it deba following what you

00:11:48 --> 00:12:31

read, because the first step is reading. The second step is understanding and the third step is what that whatever you have understood, you practice it. For example, you read in the Quran about a Kamal salata will add to the Katha work on Mercury, Was there enough slavery or Salah, we learn about many commands in the Quran many statements, we are supposed to act on it. So the third thing is try to hook them following the commands as well. So in other words, it DEVAR and this includes following the commands. Secondly, this includes staying away from the prohibitions. And thirdly, this includes confirming the news that Allah subhanaw taala has given in the Quran as well, believing in that. So

00:12:31 --> 00:12:56

if Allah tells us about the coming of the day of judgment, it's news, right? Do we believe in that? Do we affirm its truthfulness? Yes, we must. So AlLadhina attina Homolka those people to whom we have given the book, what do they do yet Luna who have gotten our tea they recited as it should be recited, they recite it in the correct way till our two loves till our till mana until our two

00:12:57 --> 00:13:41

such people who give the right of the recitation of the Quran Allah says, Hola, Erica, you may know Nabil. Those are the ones who actually believe in it. Those are the ones whose belief in the book is correct. There are many people who claim to believe in the book of Allah. For example, the Bani Israel What did they claim that they believed in the torah, the torah was a book of Allah which had been revealed to them. But how did they read the words of the book? Did they read them properly? We learned earlier you heard the phone al Kalam, they used to distort the words they used to distort the meanings. So they did not do to our to love data dot util our turn minor and they did not tell

00:13:41 --> 00:14:23

our turn hook them either. So such people even if they claim that they believe in the book, are the truly believers in the book? No. Such people are not believers in the book, who are those people who actually truly believe in the book, those who recite it as it should be recited? Similarly, if we as Muslims, we claim to love the Quran, we claim to believe in the Quran. But if we don't bother to recite it, if we don't bother to understand what it says, And if we don't follow it, then what kind of belief is ours? It's deficient, it's not complete, there is a problem with it. The question is that when it comes to doing tilava, there are three types of delivery. So is there any order in

00:14:23 --> 00:14:59

which you should do it? What's the order? The first step to acting on something doing something is what you have to understand it. So following the book comes after understanding the book. So till our turn hokum comes after tilava Martina in order to understand what's the first step, reading aloud the laughs come first. But if there is a person who does not know how to read the Quran, should I say no, I'm not going to bother to sit in any of your class because unless and until I perfect my weed, I'm not going to understand the meaning of the book of Allah is how it should be. No

00:15:00 --> 00:15:43

We must know that all of these three things we are supposed to do the proper way the ideal way is to go step by step. Correct. But if a person does not get that opportunity, then what should they do? Sees whatever comes their way, sees whatever comes your way. So if you have the opportunity to come sit in the depths of your class and understand the meaning of the Quran, should you not do that? Yes, you should. But does it mean that you neglect learning how to recite the Quran? No, you can't do that. Both you have to do in fact, all three we have to do. We have to take all three alongside. We cannot disregard one for another. No, all three are necessary. Only then it will be Hakata

00:15:43 --> 00:16:28

reality. So hola Erica, you know that. Those are the ones who believe in the book. Well, my yoke for B and as for those who disbelieve in it, yuck for coffered rejection. Those who disbelieve in the work those who deny it, who don't follow it, who don't recite it, who don't bother to understand it. And what is their fate? Footlight Iike homall hos Iran then it is those who are indeed the losers. Aloha Sarunas deplore love horses, and horses from ha seen or Hassan and her salon is to suffer loss. It's the opposite of rip. Rip is to gain profit, and her salon is to suffer loss. Suffer hula ecoman costume. It's not that they will end up with no reward. No, they will end up with loss for

00:16:28 --> 00:16:34

hula Iike Hamal hos rune. Let's listen to the recitation levena

00:16:37 --> 00:16:38

Luna will help

00:16:44 --> 00:16:47

me know Naveen, warmer.

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


00:16:52 --> 00:16:53

Homeowner halls?

00:16:57 --> 00:17:01

What have you learned from this verse? What lesson Have you learned for yourself?

00:17:02 --> 00:17:12

the favor of Allah subhanaw taala on us that not only did he give us the book, but he also told us what we are supposed to do with the book that we're supposed to give the hulk of the book Hakata Allah.

00:17:13 --> 00:17:57

So Allah did not leave us just with the book not telling us what to do, but also encouraging us guiding us as to what we should do with the book of Allah. What are the things that we learned from this versus the grid favor of Allah upon the one to whom Allah has given the book? Allah says over here, Alladhina Elena will kita those people to whom we have given the book, many people are given many blessings by Allah subhanaw taala. But not everyone is given the blessing of the book of Allah. Think about it onto so many people who are around you, Muslim or non Muslim, how many of them are familiar with the Quran? How many of them understand the Quran, to derive lessons from it in order

00:17:57 --> 00:18:20

to improve their lives? Not everybody gets that. So a person who has been given the Book of Allah, he should realize that this is a huge, a huge favor of Allah. It's a gift of Allah on him. And when somebody gives you a gift, then what are you supposed to do with it? disregard it, discard it, ignore it, what do you do with a gift that is given to you?

00:18:21 --> 00:19:00

You open it immediately. Many times that happens that people are taking their gifts. And as you're putting them on the site, they will peek in, okay, what's inside. And as soon as people have it, they will start using it. Because they value the gift. And if the gift is something useless than what do people do throw anyone look at it. They want to pretend the word never given that gift. But Allah has given us the most precious gift AlLadhina attina, whom will Kitab and when we have been given this gift, we should certainly value it. Another important lesson that we learn in this verse is that it's not necessary that a person who has been given the book, he actually truly receives it.

00:19:01 --> 00:19:45

Allah gives the book to many people, but not everybody receives the book, you see for anything to be given to somebody, there is a two way action that is required. One on the part of the giver, and the other on the part of the receiver. The responsibility of the giver is what to give it and the responsibility of the receiver is what to receive it to take it. If somebody parcels you mails you a big gift, which is in a box and it cannot fit in your mailbox, then what's going to happen, it's going to end up in the closest post office near your house. And what are you supposed to you're supposed to go and collect it from the post office. Like your friend sent it. What is your

00:19:45 --> 00:20:00

responsibility to go and pick it out? But if you don't go and pick it up, whose fault is it? It's your fault. You never received it. So Allah He gives the book he sends the book but does everybody receive it property? No. All people

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

don't receive it. This is why Allah says AlLadhina attina Homolka. Yet Luna, who

00:20:06 --> 00:20:51

will let me know? In other words, those people who don't give the hug of the tilava Have they received the book? No. So if a person says that he believes in the Quran, but he does not recite it, but he does not bother to understand it, but he does not act upon it has he received the book, he has not received it, who has received it, the one who recites it, the one who understands it, and the one who lives by it. So we shouldn't just be proud of the fact that we have the book. No, that's not sufficient. What is necessary is the action on our part, then only we can rejoice. Another important lesson that we learned from this verses that Eman belief faith has signs. A person cannot

00:20:51 --> 00:21:35

just claim that he I believe, when a person truly has belief in the heart, it will be manifested where in his actions there will be certain signs on him. So one of the signs or one of belief in the book, one of the signs is what he had Luna who have fertility. So if a person does not do yet Luna will have Padilla what it is is unacceptable. This is the man complete. No. Another important lesson that we learned in this verse is that any person who does not recite the book, who does not follow the book, who does not understand the book, then there is a problem with his Eman. His Eman will certainly be deficient. His Eman will not be at the same level as the one who recites the book who

00:21:35 --> 00:22:17

follows the book who understands the book, there is a huge difference. Have you experienced it yourself? Before you knew Surah Fatiha was it the same as now? No. When you did not know so little Fatiha when you prayed it was different. And now that you know Senator Fatiha isn't your prayer different. It is different. So there is a huge difference between the one who does not give the hack of the book and the one who gives the hack of the book there is a difference in their Eman. Many times people say I want to improve my email and I want to increase my email. I want to better my faith. How should I do it? What do we learn from this verse? What should we do? Recite the book,

00:22:17 --> 00:23:04

understand the book act on the book and that will certainly improve your faith. Another important lesson that we learn in this versus that those people who don't give the hook of the Tilawat of the Quran, then such people suffer loss. How? One is the person who recites the book of Allah for every letter he recites how much reward does he get? Then, on the other hand is a person who does not recite the book of Allah? How much reward does he get? None. Zero. Then you might say okay, you should stay neutral. No, he will not stay neutral, he will suffer. Why? Because of his not giving the hook of the book of Allah because the prophets of Allah Islam said that Al Quran to laka Oh, I

00:23:04 --> 00:23:35

like this Quran is either an argument for you or it is an argument against you. Those who don't give the half of the book of Allah, they don't stay neutral. No, they suffer the Quran who complain against them on the Day of Judgment. Even the messenger will say that my people abandoned the book. My people abandoned the Quran. So those who don't give the hug of the book of Allah, they don't stay neutral. They suffer May Allah save us all from this huge loss levena

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


00:23:39 --> 00:23:43

help particular Watty

00:23:46 --> 00:23:48

you know Naveen, woman

00:23:50 --> 00:23:51


00:23:54 --> 00:23:55

force you.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:02

So does this Ayatollahs the importance of reciting the Quran?

00:24:03 --> 00:24:49

There is a difference between reciting the Quran and studying the Quran what you're doing right now is what? Studying the Quran? What is reciting the Quran? That for example, you sit down, you open up the most half and you start reciting the Quran. You start reading or for instance, you're standing in prayer. And what do you do you recite the Quran from your memory? That is what reciting the Quran what you're doing right now is studying the Quran. Many people think that if they're studying the Quran, then reciting the Quran is not as important. What did he learn how continuity includes all three things? Recitation understanding, as well as action. So is it necessary to recite the Quran?

00:24:49 --> 00:24:59

Yes, it is. Because many of us we become lazy when it comes to reciting the Quran. When we have free time, we will read the news. We will check email again

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

and again and again, we will read different different things, the text messages that people are sending us the different updates that people are putting up on their Facebook or Twitter or whatever it is. But when it comes to actually reciting the Quran, then we become lazy over there. All of a sudden, we don't have time, all of a sudden we are sleepy, all of a sudden, we have something very important to do. And unfortunately, we fall behind in this. This is the case of every one of us, including myself,

00:25:31 --> 00:25:37

that we can recite the Quran more, we can, but we become lazy unfortunately.

00:25:38 --> 00:26:20

And we have to realize the importance of reciting the Quran in order to start giving the HAC of the Quran so right now in China, I'm going to tell you a little bit about the importance of reciting the Quran. How important is it? First of all, remember that reciting the Quran is actually one of the rights of the Quran. The Quran has many rights. What are the first rights of the Quran is one that we believe in the Quran? The next thing is that we read the Quran we recite it the third is that we understand it we reflect on it. The fourth is that we act on it and the fifth is that we convey it. The Quran has many rights. And the second one is what that we must recite the Quran.

00:26:21 --> 00:27:03

We know that once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said a dino and Nestle have religion. This religion is what well wishing being sincere, wanting good. So those hardware decide Limon for who were wishing to wear to the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Allah for Allah that a person has well wishing for Allah. Secondly, will he Kitabi thirdly, will you are solely for three were your immortal Muslimeen And fifth, were armor to him? Are the leaders of the Muslims and are more or the masses me the Muslims in general? What do we learn in this hadith? The Prophet sallallahu sallam said that religion is one well wishing well wishing towards the book of Allah, what is well wishing

00:27:03 --> 00:27:48

to the book of Allah, wanting good for the book of Allah? When you want good for something for someone, you are attached to it? You like it, you love it. Tell me how can you ever develop attachment with the book of Allah, if you don't read it? There's a huge difference between us common people and those people who memorize the Quran. Those people who memorize the Quran, you see them with the Quran, they're attached to the Quran. So we can never develop this attachment unless and until we start reciting the book of Allah. And only then can we do Amel on this hadith. Secondly, we learned that reciting the Quran is a very profitable trade. We know that every action every word of

00:27:48 --> 00:28:30

ours in this world carries value. How that on the Day of Judgment, our actions, our statements, our intentions, everything is going to be viewed is going to be checked, and for them, we are going to be recompensed. If it's good, we will be rewarded. If they're bad, then we will be held accountable for them. And if it's good, then how will Allah reward it? Many, many times, multiple times. So when it comes to recitation of the book of Allah, this is a very, very profitable trade. We learn the Quran Allah Subhana Allah says in surah Felter i a 2930 that in the medina yet Luna Kitab Allah indeed those people who recite the book of Allah the first characteristic is what they recited the

00:28:30 --> 00:29:11

read it they do it still Allah were a common salata and they established the salah were uncommon Marzocchi now him several seven we're hola Ania and the Spanish out of what We have given them secretly and openly here June at Jonathan LAN taboo, they are looking forward they are expecting for a trade meaning a result reward a profit with Allah lent award that will never ever perish, meaning that profit that reward is guaranteed for them Liwa theorem or Jura Hall Allah will recommend to them and for their rewards Allah will give them in full way as Zita human fugly and Allah will multiply there what he will increase the reward out of His Bounty in the Hoover foreign choco indeed

00:29:11 --> 00:29:57

He's forgiving and he is grateful. So what do we learn in this verse? What's the benefit of reciting the book of Allah, that the reward is guaranteed in sha Allah, the reward is many times more you see the human fugly and look at the names of Allah that are mentioned over here Kofoed Shaku fulfilled that Allah will forgive shockwave that he will appreciate he will reward abundantly for the good deeds of a person. Thirdly, we must recite the Quran because we must aspire to be the best believer. In a hadith we learned the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that the example of a believer who recites the Quran and acts on it, what does he do? recites the Quran and he also acts on it. His example is

00:29:57 --> 00:29:59

like an orange that describes

00:30:00 --> 00:30:08

And it also smells nice. It tastes very good. It's very pleasant and at the same time, it's also very fragrant.

00:30:09 --> 00:30:56

Then the example of a believer who does not recite the Quran, the example of the person who does not recite the Quran, but he does act on it. His example is like a date. That is sweet, but it's not frequent. Is there a difference between a date and an orange? There's a huge difference. A date is only sweet, but it's not fragrant. It doesn't look that beautiful. When you look at an orange, it's bright, it's attractive. It's fresh. It's fragrant, and the example of the hypocrite who recites the Quran, but he does not act on it properly, because he's a hypocrite who does read it, then his example is like what? Like basil, which smells good, when it's better. It smells good. However, it

00:30:56 --> 00:31:08

is bitter. And the example of a hypocrite who does not even recite the Quran is like a cola scent. It's a particular kind of a bitter fruit, it tastes bitter, and it also has a very bad smell.

00:31:10 --> 00:31:23

So where do we fall? Ask yourself, Where do I fall? Am I like the coalescent? Am I like the basil? Am I like a date? Or am I like an orange? What can I compare myself with?

00:31:24 --> 00:32:02

Fourthly, we must recite the Quran. Why? Because it is the way of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we have been told to follow the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and we know that the prophets are a lot of time used to recite the Quran a lot in the Quran as well. Allah subhanaw taala himself says one of the characteristics of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is that yet Lu alaykum if Tina he recites unto you Our Verses, the prophets, Allah Allah Listen, reciting the Quran for the people. We know that in the month of Ramadan, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would review he would revise the Quran how? by reciting it. And also we learned from a hadith which is reported in October, Ronnie that once I've

00:32:02 --> 00:32:16

overridden at the lower end, who he went to the marketplace, and you can imagine the marketplace all the people are buying, selling, having fun joking around wasting their time. There are people hanging out in the marketplace. So he said to them, yeah, I love soup, mergers,

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

or people of the so called people of the mall, what is keeping you behind? What is keeping you behind? So they said, What's the matter of who had avoided Allah and who said that coming off? Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam yoke some who were Antonia Hoonah

00:32:33 --> 00:33:08

the inheritance the legacy of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is being distributed. And here you are, you're standing right here. Just imagine the prophets Allah Allah slums inheritance is being distributed and you all are hanging around here. Go get it a letter the Havana Fatah huddled and asleep a comfy Will you not go and get your share of it. So the people asked him, Where is it just imagine if we were told the prophets of Allah cinemas things his belongings are being distributed? What will we do to seminary the people that are aware where? And he said in the masjid so all the people went to the masjid. And when they went, they came up because there's nothing being

00:33:08 --> 00:33:45

distributed. So we would ask them the Why did you come back? They said we didn't see anything being distributed. He said, What did you see over there? And they replied that he now Coleman, we saw people who were you for Luna, who were praying Salah was a woman and the people who were Yoko Ono Quran who were reciting the Quran were coming here to their karuna, halal and haram and the people who were discussing halal and haram meaning the matters of halal and haram. So Buddha said way, how come What do you where you have gone further Camila Mohamed Salah Lourdes and that is a legacy of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that is His heritage that is what he left behind for you. He told us

00:33:45 --> 00:34:26

to pray he told us to recite the Quran and he told us to know the halal and haram he told us what it was. So what are you doing? You're wasting your time in the bazaar in the mall. And there are people in the masjid they're busy doing what reciting the Quran, benefiting from the legacy the heritage of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Another important reason why we must do to our of the Quran is because it is an act of worship. It's very bad, just as performing the Salah, is it an act of worship? Yes, it is going for Umrah is it an act of worship, giving sadaqa is it an act of worship seminary when it comes to the era of the Quran, the Tila of the Quran, even that is an act of

00:34:26 --> 00:34:59

worship. And what it means by an act of worship is that it's an action which Allah likes. Remember, he told me the definition of Nevada, Nevada is what those actions which Allah loves. And this is why He rewards generously for those actions. What's the reward of reciting the Quran? We learn in a hadith. Whoever reads one letter of the book of Allah is credited with one blessing and one blessing is equal to tenfold, meaning it's multiplied 10 times the light they're often its reward. The buffets on a lot of them said it not

00:35:00 --> 00:35:16

Alif Lam meme is one word. But rather Elif is one lamb is one and meme is one. So even when a person recites Elif Lam mean, what's the reward 30 times multiplied by 10 times multiply by however much Allah subhanaw taala once,

00:35:17 --> 00:35:59

on the Day of Judgment, you know what we will want? The Day of Judgment is the day of Hustla It's the day of regret when people will wish there are just a few more good deeds. Just even one more Steven 10 More even 30 more, because every good deed matters on that day. Then how can we say, I'm busy right now? Forget it. I'll recite tomorrow. Let me read what's on the news. Let me read what my friend posted on Facebook. Yeah, read the Quran later. We can't do that. We cannot do that. Because on the Day of Judgment, we're going to regret if we did not benefit from this opportunity. Another reason why we must recite the Quran is that because it produces love.

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

recitation of the Quran produces love in the heart love for whom Allah and His messenger the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that man Samra, who, whoever has this wish, the secret wish in his heart, that desire deep down in his heart, that you have Billa Hawara Sula, who fully filled most half whoever loves in his heart that he should love Allah and His Messenger, whoever has this desire deep down, then what should he do? He should recite what is in the most how many you should recite the Quran. The recitation of the Quran is going to help you love the Prophet salallahu Salam, it's going to help you love Allah subhanaw taala

00:36:39 --> 00:37:22

is it important to love Allah? Is it important to love the prophets of Allah sunnah? Yes, it is. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said that let me know how to come Hata Hakuna habla la human Maliki Well, Addy, one nasty Ajmeri that none of you can truly believe until I am the most beloved to him than what his wealth his children and all mankind from other versions that are these we also learn himself himself. So we have to love the prophets are allowed to send them otherwise our Eman is deficient in order to love the Prophet. What should we do? Yes, follow his sunnah. Yes, read about his Sierra. But one of the very important things that we can do is what? recite the Quran.

00:37:23 --> 00:37:55

Another important reason why we must recite the Quran is because it is a source of peace. Many times we're human beings. We feel sad, we feel unhappy, we feel depressed, we feel angry, we feel jealous, we feel upset, especially women, especially women. And I can say that very confidently because I'm a woman. Every woman experiences ups and downs. Emotionally, we are very imbalanced. One woman, we're very happy will be very nice. And next woman will be yelling and screaming.

00:37:56 --> 00:38:34

One day, we had the nicest person and the next day, we're the most depressed person in this world. Because we're women. Then what is it that we should do to comfort ourselves? We do many things. We talk to people, we cry. Sometimes we just start eating. Some people do that because they're upset. They'll just start eating. They don't care about the good food that they were eating in the good day that they were following. No, I'm hungry. I don't care. I'm just going to have one chocolate bar after the other people do that. Sometimes you will sleep the sleep the whole day. Wake up. Go away. I don't feel like getting up. I'm just upset. Why? I don't know. Why you crying? I don't know. This

00:38:34 --> 00:39:10

is what we do. We don't know why we are sad. We don't know why we're crying. We don't know why we're healing. We are human beings. We are women. Our hearts experienced this. What does Allah say? Allah be the killer he testimony knockaloe If you want to comfort your heart, if you want to feel at peace, go open the book of Allah and start reciting and you will feel better, you will feel happy. You will feel useful. And you need to feel like that. You need to have positive feelings about yourself. Only then you will be happy. And the only way you can do that is by reciting the Quran. Allah with the green light that

00:39:11 --> 00:39:46

another Hadith we learned that the prophets are a lot of Saddam said there is no one who is afflicted by distress and grief and he says that throughout Allahumma inni aboukir emetic now see a TV addict melden via Pocomoke argument via cabal oak and the dark continues. And towards the end it says antigen Khurana or via Calbee that oh Allah you make the Quran the life of my heart, the spring of my heart. One note of Saudi watch Allah whose knee with a habit HMI will meet a person recites that this there are and Allah will take away his grief. So one of the ways of feeling happy is whether we recite the Quran.

00:39:47 --> 00:39:59

This is the way we can feel better. Another reason is because the Quran is a healing. It's a cure. We learned about the Murad feel could be a marathon until many diseases of the heart

00:40:00 --> 00:40:25

There are many diseases of the heart. Some people, they are diseased with extreme love of something. Some people are diseased with extreme hate of something to the point that it makes them imbalanced. Some people are diseased with jealousy. Some people are diseased with arrogance. Some people are diseased with Riya the many disease of the heart. So what's the cure? The Quran recited, Allah says well known as the luminal Quran the man who has she found

00:40:26 --> 00:40:53

in this Quran, it's Shiva and Rama. But if we don't recite it, how can we get that Shiva? How can we get that Rama? We cannot. When people are sick, you know what they do? They ask somebody just tell me what I should read. Just tell me what I should read. That's what they want from you. And if you tell them read this word, 100,000 times they will do it. Read this word 50,000 times they will actually do it. But if you tell them read the Quran Dota Yeah, yeah, but what else?

00:40:55 --> 00:40:59

What's the cure? Where is the cure? It's in the Quran, recite the Quran,

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

recite the Quran. And if you feel tired, don't worry, because this is a healing. It's a source of mercy. We also learned that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam whenever he would feel taker, he would have been he will TrueSight while with a tenant, he would blow them into his hands and pass his hand over the seminary at nighttime, before going to bed, he would read them or without and he would load them on his hand and pass over his body. So it's a cure. So to Fatiha, we learned that once group of companions were traveling, and they camped by a particular tribe, and they asked if they could be lost over there, and they refused. They weren't hospitable to them. So they just

00:41:36 --> 00:42:09

camped outside. And then what happened was that their leader, he got bitten by a scorpion or in and they couldn't figure out what to do with him. They tried many things. So eventually, they went to companions of the Prophet saw him and said, Do you know what to do? So one of them, he read Surah Fatiha, and he blew on him and he felt better. So those people that gave them you know, a whole lot of sheep, and they went back to the Prophet salallahu Salam, and they told him that this is what happened and the Prophet SAW Allah was unimproved of what they did. So unfair to her. What is it? She thought, so you have to recite it. When we're hurting? What will we do? Pop Tylenol in our

00:42:09 --> 00:42:30

mouths, drink a glass of water, go to sleep with the whole day away. Or start complaining? Start writing everywhere I'm hurting, I'm hurting, I'm hurting. That is happening. That's happening that's happening. What should you do? It's only gonna take you 10 minutes to read throttle Fatiha seven times. Take that time recite it and blow it on yourself. But I don't know why we can lazy over there.

00:42:31 --> 00:43:11

Why are we the team these are sort of falak rottenness and what are we that the pseudo to follow through to nurse sotalol class. Then we see that when a person recites the Quran, what he receives is better than anything else. When a person recites the Quran, what he receives is better than any gain. Listen to this hadith. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he wants came to the Companions who were sitting in the masjid, who were sitting on the sofa and he asked any one of you would he like to go to the market of Bhutan or a peak and fetch from their douchey camels of the finest breed without committing any sin or severing any type of relationship?

00:43:12 --> 00:43:55

Then he goes to the marketplace and he returns with two best camels, and he doesn't steal them from anywhere. He doesn't harm anyone. No, he gets them for free. Would anyone like that? So what happened? All the Sahaba they said, Of course, every one of us would love to do that. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that going to the masjid and reciting or teaching to verses of the Quran is more precious than to she camels, three Ayat are more precious than three she camels, four or more precious than four she gambled in order to she got her means. You might say, oh, camel, so what? What does it mean today, the best card that you can get? Camels are not cheap. They can get very

00:43:55 --> 00:44:37

expensive, especially those that are of the finest breeds. They can come to 1000s and 1000s of dollars. And I'm not joking, you can go check it out yourself. Google it, the cost of a camel, and the higher the breed, the better the breed, the more expensive it is. Which one of us would not like that we go to the mall and we return with two cars for free. Would you like that? Of course. Would you like three would you like four would you like 50? Yeah, why not? But you know what? Reciting the verses of Quran are much better much better than receiving these cars. Because these cars, they will become outdated. something or the other is going to happen to them, but their reward is eternal.

00:44:39 --> 00:45:00

reciting the Quran listening to the Quran, are they the same? No. When you listen to the Quran, you reflecting, okay, you get the reward of reflecting. But when you are reciting the Quran, then what are you doing? Reciting as well as reflecting double reward? It's completely different. Another reason for

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

addition to Quran is that the reward of recitation of the Quran is multiplied many, many times. We learn from a hadith that whoever recites 100 verses he might say, 100 Oh my God, that's too much. Open up just onma just open up this armor. The verses are so short look at certain Walker, look at total black man versus how short so whoever recites 100 verses in the night, the award of standing in prayer for the entire night is written for him.

00:45:31 --> 00:45:38

Imagine how many of us can do that. We stand in prayer all night long. Standing in therapy is such a challenge for us.

00:45:39 --> 00:46:24

Which of us can do that standing in prayer all night long. But a person who recites 100 verses of the Quran in the night, he gets a reward of standing in prayer all night long. It doesn't have to be late to cover. It doesn't have to be a Friday night doesn't have to be a Thursday night, no any night. Another reason is that reciting the Quran is of great benefit in this life. It's a source of great benefit in this life. We learned that Allah subhanaw taala says that if anybody finds no time to do my dhikr and to do dua, meaning Tibet favors of me. Why? Because he is busy with the Quran. So for example, you have decided that today you're going to read half of it just every time you finish

00:46:24 --> 00:46:51

the Salah, you started reciting the Quran, because he wanted to meet your target. And you don't want to just speed it up. You want to recite property. So every time you finish your Salah, you start reciting, because you started reciting the Quran, you didn't get time to sit and make dua, you didn't get time to do extra Atka. So if a person is busy with the Quran, so much so that he does not get the time to make dua to do other than what happens. Allah says that I shall give him more than what I give to those who asked me,

00:46:53 --> 00:47:34

Allah who will give that person more compared to those who ask Allah. So one is a person who makes straw does not recite the Quran. Another is a person who recite the Quran, and he wanted to make dua, but he didn't get a chance he didn't get the time. Who's better the second one, because he will be given more. The superiority of the word of Allah over all other words is like the superiority of Allah over the entire creation. This is how better the Quran is. The Prophet said a lot of time he advised one of the companions that you must recite the Quran for it is your role in the sky in your in the earth. If you recite the Quran, it will be a source of your mention in this earth. So

00:47:34 --> 00:47:54

recitation of Quran is a source of great benefit, even in this life. And we learned that reciting the Quran is something that is worth envy. Meaning if a person recites the Quran, other people must be jealous of him. They should be if they do, they're actually rewarded for that envy. Can you imagine be rewarded for envy? For

00:47:55 --> 00:48:33

the one who recites the Quran, the Prophet SAW Allah Islam said law has said Allah I left nothing there is no envy except in the case of two people Rajon Atala and Keita the person to whom Allah has given the book and he received it right. So how did he receive it? What karma be and he stood in prayer with it and Elaine in the hours of the night in other words, he stood in prayer and recite to the Quran. Such a person you should be jealous off if you're jealous of him, you will actually get reward for that. And the other is origin artha Hola, who Merlin for Hawaii at the Sadako Biggie Anna Elaine when the * and the person whom Allah has given wealth, and he gives it in charity in the

00:48:33 --> 00:49:14

hours of the night and the day, recitation of the Quran is a source of protection, it is a means of protection in the grave. If you're sleeping, can you prevent ants and spiders from coming over you? Can you it's quite possible that if a spider comes over your bites you, you wake up from that pain, and you push it away. But tell me when you're lying down in your grave? Can you save yourself? Can you protect yourself? Can you move your arm? Can you scream at someone? Can you do anything to protect yourself physically, you can't. So you need something else to protect you. And for that you have to prepare now, a person who recites the Quran, he will be saved from the punishment in the

00:49:14 --> 00:49:51

grave. We learn from a hadith that a person he will be in the grave and for either otium in Cuba. See he when the punishment comes to him from his head, the punishment comes towards his head, the fire to Tila with the Quran, then his recitation of the Quran is going to push that punishment away, it's going to avert it. And when the punishment comes to it from before him from in front of him from above him than his giving charity is going to avert that punishment. And when it comes to him from his feet, then his walking towards the masjid is going to protect him from that punishment.

00:49:52 --> 00:49:59

So just imagine recitation of the Quran is a means of what protection against the punishment of the grave

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

And we all need that. Because none of us can guarantee that we will be perfectly fine and safe in our graves. We know that there were people at the time of the Prophet salallahu Salam, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who had seen him who had been with him what worship alongside him. When one of them was buried the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed by and said this one is being punished for what? For his not being careful when he urinated that the sprinkles of urine would splash on him and he didn't care about that he didn't care about his the huddle. And so he's being punished in the grave because of that. How many of us can guarantee will be safe in the grave? We

00:50:36 --> 00:50:44

need to prepare for it. And the means of preparing it are what what's the way reciting the Quran? So recite

00:50:45 --> 00:51:29

another reason why we must recite the Quran because it's a source of great honor on the Day of Judgment. Listen to this hadith. On the Day of Judgment, the Quran will appear in the form of a lean human being a very weak person and will say, do you recognize me? The person will say no, I do not recognize you. The Quran will say I am your companion, the Quran, who kept you thirsty in the scorching heat and who kept you awake in the night. Every trader every businessman expects to be benefited from his articles of trade, any businessman who invest something what is the expected return some profit some gain. And today you are under the shade of your all kinds of articles of

00:51:29 --> 00:52:10

trade meaning today you will reap the benefits of what you invested in your life, then he will be given kingship in his right hand and permission for entry into paradise in his left hand. permission to enter paradise and in paradise, Inc ship imagine a person has a lot of authority, a lot of land many servants a lot of power, he will be given that in Paradise, he will be made to wear the crown of respect and dignity. So every person who will see him on the Day of Judgment will say how honorable how dignified that person is. And not only him, but his parents will be made to wear two silky robes and the worldly people did not attach any importance to them. So the people will ask,

00:52:11 --> 00:52:40

Why have they been made to wear this dress? So they will be told those two parents they will be told that your child obtain knowledge of the Quran. And then the child will be asked to start reciting the Quran. And for every verse read by him, the status of the parents will be raised to the next higher grade of paradise till the recitation of the Quran is complete. So imagine a person will be honored on the Day of Judgment because of his recitation of the Quran. If we don't recite How can we get that honor?

00:52:41 --> 00:53:17

How can we bring it upon ourselves on that day we cannot we have to deserve it because Allah is the Giver and Allah will only give if we show ourselves as worthy. We also learned that a person who is well versed in the Quran meaning who recites the Quran very well, you might say, I'm not one of those, but how would you become well versed in the Quran when you recite and recite and recite and recite and you don't stop reciting? Just as when it comes to reading English, how do you become proficient in your English reading how, when you read and read and read, then you pick up the speed, then the words become easier for you. So the one who is well versed in the Quran will be in the

00:53:17 --> 00:53:58

company of those angels who are the scribes, those angels who write the noble and righteous angels, he will be with them on the Day of Judgment, not any angels, the Honorable angels, and the person who falters in reading the Quran, meaning he finds it difficult, but he still tries and he has to exert hard for learning, that person will get doubled reward. Why? Because he did not give up he kept trying, he kept breeding again and again and again. He did not give up so he will get doubled reward. Another Hadith tells us that whoever reads the Quran and learns it by heart and regards what it makes lawful as lawful, and it's unlawfulness forbidden will be admitted into Paradise by Allah,

00:53:58 --> 00:54:24

who will also accept His intercession in respect of 10 people of his family who will be doomed to hellfire. So imagine a person will be allowed to do shafa to intercede for others who will be allowed to do shofar on the Day of Judgment, the prophets, the angels, those who are very righteous and imagine a person who reads memorize as follows the Quran will also be given the permission to intercede for others what a great honor.

00:54:25 --> 00:54:59

Then this is also a means of your son will validate. He might say how I'm reading the Quran, how am I being good to my parents in this way? Because when you read the Quran, you're not the only one who's going to benefit your parents are going to benefit. Whoever reads the Quran and acts upon what is contained in it. His parents were made to wear a crown on the day of judgment and the brightness of which will excel that of the sun. Imagine how bright the sun is. Imagine a crown as bright as that on the head of someone. Imagine who will there be the parents are the one who was

00:55:00 --> 00:55:36

Ah the Quran. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said so what do you think about the person who himself acts on it if the parents are so honored and what about the person himself? Another reason why we must recite the Quran is because the Quran is going to intercede for us if we recited on the Day of Judgment, the prophets or a lot of them said read the Quran for indeed it will come on the day of judgment as an intercessor for its companions. However, companions of the Quran, those who read it, those who keep the Quran with themselves and why were tricky to Quran with yourself because you want to read it. How your companion if someone when you're with them in the morning when you're with them

00:55:36 --> 00:56:10

during the day when you're with them at night when you're with them everywhere. So a person who is with the Quran, the Quran will intercede for him on the day of judgment. The Prophet saw a lot of Sunset but there's a surah of the Quran containing 30 verses and the surah which will intercede for a person on the day of judgment until he is forgiven, which is that Surah de vaca Libya the Surah Al Mulk. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam encouraged us to recite to before we sleep at night. So a person who recites it then that Surah will intercede for him until that person is forgiven.

00:56:11 --> 00:56:18

Another reason is because the Quran is a guide to paradise for who for those who recite it,

00:56:19 --> 00:56:36

A Guide to paradise the Prophet sallallahu sallam said the Quran is an intercessor something given permission to intercede and it is rightfully believed in. Whoever puts it in front of him, it will lead him to paradise. When can you put the Quran in front of you when you just stare at it,

00:56:37 --> 00:57:18

just put it in front of you and look at it all day and do nothing. Putting in front of you means we're opening it and resulting it. So whoever puts the Quran in front of him the Quran is gonna take him to Paradise is going to lead them to Jana is not going to leave him until he gets to paradise. And a person who puts it behind his back it will steer him to the hellfire. A person who ignores it will be held accountable. Another reason why we must recite the Quran more and more because we might think the AI recite recite enough, but why recite more and even more and never stop reciting. Because it is a means of gaining height in paradise. We learn from a hadith that it will be set to

00:57:18 --> 00:57:29

the companion of the Quran. If crop was read and ascend, read and elevate, keep reading and keep going up. Keep reading and keep going up. Go up up up

00:57:31 --> 00:57:46

and beautify your voice as you did when you were in the worldly life, meaning beautify your voice in reciting the Quran as you beautified your voice when you recited the Quran in your life. For verily your position in Paradise will be at the last verse that you recite.

00:57:48 --> 00:58:32

How can we recite the Quran a lot at that time, when we are used to reciting the Quran a lot today, when we have memorized the Quran, when we do recite it when we are in the habit of reciting and only then we'll be able to recite it that and the more person recites the higher his level will be in paradise. And for those who don't recite the book of Allah, are they missing out on something? A person who does not recite the Quran? Is he missing out on something? What is he missing out on? That person is missing out on a lot of safety, security, well being in this life in the grave and in the hereafter. If a person does not recite the Quran, he's left on his own. A person who does not

00:58:33 --> 00:58:42

attach himself with the book of Allah, he's left on his own in this life, sad and depressed, unhappy in the grave, vulnerable on the Day of Judgment alone.

00:58:43 --> 00:59:20

Your treatment with the book of Allah is going to be the treatment of the book of Allah with you. You spend time with it, it will not abandon you in the grave. You spend time with it, it will not leave you on the Day of Judgment. You give importance to it, it will not leave you on the Day of Judgment. And you don't want to be alone on that day. The day when father and son will be running away from one another. The mother and daughter will be running away from one another husband and wife will be running away from one another. Nobody is going to come to you on the Day of Judgment. We have learned earlier that what taco Yeoman lather just enough sun or enough sunshine. No person

00:59:20 --> 00:59:34

is going to help another on that day. Well our mule soft on so many times we have read that they will not be helped. Every person will be alone. And if you want to have somebody with you, You better read the Quran today. Why else is it necessary?

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

If we don't read the Quran, if we don't recite the Quran, what are we missing out on? That unless and until a person recites believes gives a heck of the Quran he will not have high levels in paradise. That's for those who don't read the Quran, those who don't recite the book of Allah, there is a severe warning for them. We learn that on the Day of Judgment, the Prophet salallahu Salam will complain again

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

To against those who had abandoned the Quran, those who did not pick it up those who did not read it, those who did not reflect on it those who did not recite it in their prayer, those who did not bother to learn how to read the book of Allah when they learned so many other things. If we can learn so many things in this world, why is it impossible for us to learn the book of Allah? It's not impossible. I always look at so many scholars who are so learned in our religion, and there was a time when they were not even Muslim. You know that so many people today you will find them so well versed in the Quran and Sunnah. And there was a time when they did not even know what the Quran was.

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

How did they get there that they know the Quran by memory, they recite the Quran easily how do they get there by doing nothing? A miracle happened one day that all of a sudden the Quran came into their memory and they were able to read. No, you have to put in effort. You have to read you have to give priority to it. You have to dedicate time and effort to it. So a person who abandons the Quran, who does not give importance to it, the Prophet said a lot of them will complain. Well, Carla was soo Yara be in a commie Taha who had the Quran. Jumeirah that all Allah Oh my lord, these people are mine. They abandoned the book of Allah. They abandoned the Quran for hola Erica Holman ha see rune

01:01:23 --> 01:02:08

and imagine if the Prophet sallallahu sunnah complaint that can someone. Imagine if the prophet said a lot of similar complaints to Allah against us. What can we do? Can we do anything? Can we say anything to defend ourselves? We cannot. So we must recite the Quran. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam also said the Quran is approved for you or against you. If we read it, it will be approved for us if we abandon it, it will be proof against us. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam also said that Mala Mia the honorable Quran, Felisa Mina, the person who does not recite the Quran in a clear and distinct manner is not all of us. He's not one of us. A person who does not recite the Quran does not bother

01:02:08 --> 01:02:13

to improve his recitation, then he's not of us. For Allah eco humble hos Iran.

01:02:14 --> 01:02:54

The prophets are a lot of them also said that learn the Quran and recite it. Because the example of the one who learns the Quran, he reads it and recites it in tahajjud is like an open bag full of mask, a bag that is full of perfume, and the bag is also open. So what's going to happen the fragrance is going to spread over the entire place. And the person who has learned the Quran but sleeps while the Quran has in his heart is like a bag full of musk, but with the mouth closed, mouth is closed. So what's going to happen to other fragrance, it's going to stay inside it's not going to come out. So if we don't recite the Quran, we're not going to be able to memorize it. If we don't do

01:02:54 --> 01:03:04

it, we're going to miss out on a lot. A lot of reward, a lot of honor, a lot of safety, protection well being in this world as well as the hereafter

So if we want to be those people who truly believe in the Quran, then what should we do? We have to do the tilava of the book of Allah, how Hakata Allah wa t have gotten our tea. And the first step is still our two loves. If we don't do till our two loves, then how can we perfect the local Marina and how can we perfect allow her? That's the first step. And that's the way to success. That's the way of increasing our Eman and if we don't, for Allah eco human, ha soon. One group is of those people who gain and one is of those people who lose.

01:04:18 --> 01:04:21

Where do we want to be? Which group do we want to belong to?
