So if you would right now, if you want to please resubmit your question, we greatly appreciate it.

00:07:56--> 00:08:09

So for everyone around the world, today's discussion focuses around what we are going to do what our relationship is going to be with the Koran after we get out of Ramadan. Not just

00:08:11--> 00:08:24

not the place for duck feet questions. I have always held the same opinion for everyone. If you're going to memorize that we're on 15 lying must have barakallahu feagan nuts or with money either script is good.

00:08:27--> 00:08:45

Today, brother, Jawad. I'm hoping to begin a discussion with everyone here. What does the Quran want from you? So when you read through the Quran, and you reach this stage, otherwise, if I'm comfortable, can we say the 15th minute we'll hear from our sponsor? b isn't Ella from the 15th minute, let's start

00:08:47--> 00:08:50

with our sponsors. Welcome everyone to coming in again.

00:08:52--> 00:09:29

Excellent. So friends before the 15th minute of your hour, and you're our Shall we have a greater discussion than our own individual questions? Yes, we shall. So what's the main thing that we saw? Did we see the Quran calling people of the time to Jihad to fighting in the path of Allah? subhanaw taala? Yes. And today that is not something that you have. Okay to understand it. But number if I were to say that we're on Kane wants me to understand it. So if I just read the translation, it says, a mergo fight in the path of Allah. Right? So

00:09:31--> 00:09:47

excuse me, pardon. So in the present moment, are you presently able to say the Koran wants me to take on the hardest struggle, even if it was like giving my own life and what is that in present day?

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

The Quran is giving you an example of ultimate sacrifice through the scenarios of brother or hood conduct and the lights were on wants to be understood.

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

But as soon as you get to practice how are you going to practice that? Can you Insta folks right now?

00:10:08--> 00:10:43

Facebook read okay so but moon how put into practice right we're here saying I want you to leave with Ramadan more than these lovely read Quran understand it I wanted to be able to pick up place in their heart sister yes mean if you're able to make the connection then pray make dua there we go to fight with our own knifes. So I'm saying Salaam Shahzad Hoylake Muslim to everyone around the world is the war on asking me to wage a war even if it has to do with myself?

00:10:44--> 00:10:48

Yes, and that is where I want you to come from today.

00:10:54--> 00:11:07

So I'm trying to make a greater point once we've established it in sha Allah to fight our laziness and more and more to fight our so how many people right now can choose the thing that they are going to?

00:11:09--> 00:11:39

In that they are going to fight their inner self, brother, if you're able to type into the chat box invite at withsome sharif.com I'd really appreciate it and then we can free our brother invite at Hassan sharif.com and then you can have a better way to kind of contact invite at wi Sam that just as it's spelled there bark lo fi comm number we'll be in here guys just just pull me in.

00:11:43--> 00:12:37

So now start answering the hard questions for yourself or reconciling What does meditation mean to you? And why does it have while achema salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh? Why does this word meditation breathing awareness mindfulness? Why does it make you feel like it wouldn't be allowed or how a haram or forbidden Why does it make us feel that way? Because what connection Do we have to our inner selves? Very little connections. So today when I begin to say what does the Quran want from you? Can anyone answered the zero level that we're on wants you along mommy? The Koran wants you not to open up the front and be like, hey, let me try this out. Let me taste this cheese dip.

00:12:38--> 00:13:07

Sorry, lactose intolerant friends. Let me try this thing. And brother Jawad. I shared the smallest story with everyone Sure. When I went to begin memorizing the Quran I got there to the school and my dad was trying to be understanding with my then to be teacher and then he said with some will come here and he's gonna try it he's gonna try to memorize the Quran. Now number if you can let this Gong the inner harmony of you

00:13:10--> 00:13:53

so as my teacher asking this question, what is the Quran want from you as my teacher heard my dad say as they're dropping my suitcases off with some will try it. And then my teacher said no, you can take him back. You can take your suitcases from Chicago fly back to New York. And I might I was like what? And then my teacher said I'm gonna make something clear. We don't try on here. We do it and then it gets done. Are you with me? I share the one liner in the law. Now you can feel the cloth is that you that I am cut from so my teacher was told my dad was faced with a family of five walking in say oh no you can if you're here to try this you can take with some home let him try it somewhere

00:13:53--> 00:14:10

else. Here with the odd with your relationship. It's done a lot. So it just said that it would become easy. Allies Oh, Adele said that it would become easy. And thus you do it until it gets done a lot mommy.

00:14:12--> 00:14:36

There is no try. Only do thank you Joanne there is no try. Only do when it comes to the book of Allah nuca and family joining us on Instagram if you have a few words about breathing meditation, whether they're allowed limca The question now is, is it? Are we allowed to breathe and meditate before while they Muslim? If anyone has some thoughts about that, please feel free to share.

00:14:38--> 00:14:53

So let's take a moment Bismillah to remember Allah with our utmost love and reverence. But if we don't have love and reverence for ourself, thank you chef for I'm assuming that Allahu Akbar is dunking inside the chambers of your heart where you're starting to say

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

no try. We're gonna do we're gonna do this. We're gonna do the Koran

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

And along the way, here's the thing. Are you all practicing Islam? If everyone took off their job and everyone knew what everyone's hair looked like, wink, wink, right? We live in that time we know what legs look like, we know what hair looks like.

00:15:19--> 00:15:45

So, while the purpose of your job is modesty, no, now can you slam all your chips on the table and say, I wear hijab? Because Allah told me to. I wear hijab because God told me to carry myself a certain way. Otherwise, ladies, wouldn't it burn inside you brothers who keep a beard or two? who pray five times a day? Aren't there people who don't? Aren't there people who don't? And then you're like, what is the Quran doing for me?

00:15:47--> 00:16:08

La Ilaha Illa La La Ilaha Illa La la la la la la. But I mean this right now in the 16th minute as I'm gonna turn it over to Brother Jawad as I turn it over to Brother Jawad. I'm asking you a tough question guys. Please 30 seconds to ask this question. And I know there's a 32nd delay.

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

Obey Allah regarding regarding

00:16:13--> 00:16:13

bid.

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

Are you worthy of a lost love?

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

Or do you have to earn it?

00:16:25--> 00:16:27

It's a hard question. It'll break you.

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

Do you have to earn less love?

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

Do you have to be good for Allah to love you?

00:16:40--> 00:16:54

take that into the break. Everything that I've said to you so far could be measured as a how much good no? Happy we were misinformed. My friend. You don't earn it.

00:16:57--> 00:17:03

Allah subhanaw taala loves you when you're bad. You choose to color the background dark.

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

Allah Subhana wa.no I don't believe you earn Allah's love. And that's where I knew most of us are, you're outside of it because you believe you have to earn it. And so you're striving for something you're striving to get to a destination inside a biosphere inside of a dome.

00:17:27--> 00:17:42

But that's you that's for your ego. You want to prove that you're worth it. All of you who are saying that you Oh, I'm gonna fight IT fight. I know that you want to fight me and you want to do you want to fight this thought? But I'm asking you to carry it for a moment.

00:17:46--> 00:18:16

If you're ready, I'm about to hadoo Can you with three fireballs at the same time? Okay. So come with your best. If you want to earn it. Is it about you? Or is it about Allah? Your very creation is Allah subhanho wa Taala his love for you. Then he made you when made you Muslim and Islam is just working to acknowledge his love and helping you accepted a love of my army, along with my army. Now I'm hearing some people who are saying I don't need to

00:18:21--> 00:18:24

number I'm very striking the right chords here.

00:18:26--> 00:18:50

Habib, it's tough. Habib, if you're not doing anything to gain the admiration of the Father, release God the Father understood release the metaphor of father that I have to prove myself onto him correct? Is he? Ooh, it stinks. It stinks that it's thing.

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

The remove the he just Allah.

00:18:55--> 00:19:05

Just Allah is Allah subhanaw taala a father figure? No, he's not. So take it away, just as much as we say he loves you 70 times more than your mother.

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

Take away that Father that you have to earn his admiration It stings. Because now you just uncovered that you've been trying to earn the admiration of the father figure above you. It happens it happens to all of us.

00:19:23--> 00:19:32

But friends while you're in a suit while you're doing the sin islamically speaking, Does God not love you?

00:19:34--> 00:19:58

Does a lover remove your eyesight? And I know you're like well, what is Allah's love unto you? What dude acts of service on the 20th minute of the hour on the 20 Minute. Thank you, friend. Thank you. Allow that cord Habib your wording is so beautiful. Let that chord play a certain note within you that down

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

That will never end like a tuning fork inside the heart.

00:20:07--> 00:20:43

And as that resonance permeates because I realized everything I've been talking about sounds like you need to earn this thing that you read this, minimalize this doodlebug Stop your addictions. And I know you're like But brother What if I keep sinning? Yeah, your sins hurt who Ravana Voila. And first roll the footage brother rolled up for it. Go with the last $100 love go with the love unconditionally of your Lord. And don't be afraid to be like is this is this okay in my Akita is my Islam okay? Come on friends.

00:20:44--> 00:20:53

Stand up. Allah is greater than your sin. Stop worshipping your sins for a lot. Just remember the love my gentlemen and our brother Java.

00:20:56--> 00:21:04

Aigner relief is going to share a few words with us now it isn't Allahu taala. I would like to continue our discussion and jump into hikma in our next

00:21:06--> 00:21:06

webinar.

00:21:11--> 00:21:26

Maybe what we can help Allah subhanaw taala has 99 attributes we reference 99 doors to open 99 pathways to acknowledge this unlimited source. And he is all of them both.

00:21:27--> 00:21:36

I had an Aladdin, Aladdin. He is just an merciful simultaneously.

00:21:38--> 00:22:03

But I think that's Yes. jawwad To me, it's not too much. Bear with me for a moment when I think of the names of Allah subhana wa Tada. Here's all of existence, time matters space, here it is. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is greater than that. So when you say God is justice, he is the ultimate justice. And when God is mercy, he is the ultimate mercy.

00:22:04--> 00:22:29

God is outside of time and space. So all mercy that we know of Jawad is bound in time and space fair enough to metaphysical are we Star Trek yet? Be me up Scotty? No, we're still here. We're like, okay, I can I can take this much metaphysics. Allah subhanho wa Taala is outside of time Tick Tock and space universe, galaxies so forth.

00:22:30--> 00:23:18

So God is the beginning and is the end who will overload hero hero battling. Whoa, just got metaphysical. So in your varying states, there's a door to access him. Oh, Jawad. Jawad through this one up from 50 feet he's shooting from the ark alright there young man shooting from the ark friend new friends try this a lot. So Joel has 99 ways to acknowledge him 99 doors to reach the source. So if you if you're coming home at 3am a wink wink and you need a little Allah Allah help then come to the doors of mercy. And if you are coming to the front door in your best

00:23:20--> 00:24:02

the if you're coming in your best form then come to the door of Allah dude. Can you can you dig it? Can you dig it a lot as to what is he saying in the Quran? Jawad in the last 22 years? What have we been seeing? Okay, you see this brother I had to conduct some a divorce law you got a lot there's a lot going on there all of his his law you can eat pork all shady. But aren't you seeing a Rockman Oh, Woah, dude. Aren't you seeing Timer? The one who is beyond getting irritated? God isn't irritated. It's been going on for 1000s of years while Islam sought out

00:24:09--> 00:24:09

along with

00:24:11--> 00:24:21

so that we can comprehend our Lord Allah Subhana Allah. It feels good now or it doesn't it? It feels good in the 25th Minute.

00:24:22--> 00:24:26

And brother Georgia at this moment Look, do you want to take it to the 30th along mommy?

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

Let's cut we'll cut up we're gonna cut now for a word from our sponsor, but if you feel it inside, celebrate it bark lofi communicare zacher we were celebrating right now friend. Just just jump in. Jump in like you're playing double dutch. I am in the Bronx. You're playing double dutch outside and someone's opened up the fire hydrant Will you say who's going to Jana today we is. So I would like you to take a moment and praise your Lord in the present and we're going to take a moment to hear a word

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

For my sponsor, Miss Miller

00:26:35--> 00:26:57

Oh to be loving ministry on a regime has to be Allahu La Ilaha Illa who when completing a point here with our Instagram folks and those who are joining us around the world for economic relief, our intercession program here on Tafseer Thursdays, a blessing to be with you all today. And I believe that if you wanted to summarize the first half of the

00:26:58--> 00:27:31

discussion, the first half of the discussion was knowing the author and how many access points did the author place in the Koran? Are you with me? Come to the Koran as a I need more guidance, who are Rahmani Raheem, come to the Koran at the access point of I need clarity in my life, come to the Quran in the access point and you can just throw in your own here where I need guidance in inheritance I need to get bounty where I am.

00:27:34--> 00:28:31

So is God more accessible when he has not a he or solely the name of Allah? subhanho wa Taala? Absolutely. And did God essentially go out of our way and put these 90 plus gems out there? Absolutely. So can Allah azza wa jal in the English vernacular now be put in a box? Yes, a loss of Mahatma Allah can become a symbol, right? It hangs on necklaces, people have those big elaborate stickers and either the, you know their nationalities flag. I was about to say a nationality but I chose not to. If you live anywhere on the East Coast, you know, many nationalities put their flag underneath and elaborate 99 names of a law or a big alum medallion. Which is always a wonderful

00:28:31--> 00:29:28

thing. But can't it then be pigeonholed? Correct? And with that one minute left to the to the 30th minute of the hour? Are you willing to set up more access points, more Butterfly Effect points in your spiritual relationship? If you get that one I like it, give me a butterfly. If you can set up more butterfly moment more access points to God through various names. Are you in for it? Are you in for a ride of your life along my knees to qualify for Lena. I'm itching to read the names now but I think the constructive thing to do is let's start at the beginning of our 30th minute with our discussion on one of the forms of what is the Quran want from us a state of inner happiness sought

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

Yes, sorry, can you go inside the table and close the shutters and say a lot medela Mohammed and can you open up Iran and and make it your safe place? Ooh, Good job guys. Can you make your core on your safe place? And yes, I'm dropping these subliminal messages to everyone is like I want to recite better. I want to open my sound even better. Yes, I'm talking to you friend. I want it to open up on the inside. So when this flutter begins on your inside in the garage can become yourself.

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

sanctuary that can only happen when your can pick up the Koran in difficult situations.

00:30:07--> 00:30:19

So what if you don't have will do in that exact moment? Don't let the moment stop you make the is the far if you had an if you had an

00:30:20--> 00:30:34

every example I'm going to give his Shirky but if you had something that you're like I know this is from God I know this thing is from God and I am holding something in my hand. I know this thing's from God would you shy away from using it?

00:30:36--> 00:30:56

Right oh right use it same stuff for law have to do make a stick far but go to the Quran when you're bursting in tears and read a passage Has it ever happened? Someone call you ugly and dumb or something to the effect and would you allow the Quran to have a space in your life more than it's just a religious relative?

00:30:59--> 00:31:03

Hashtag not my religious relative, Anybody? Anybody?

00:31:04--> 00:31:34

Hashtag I will not allow the Quran to become the religious relative Oh my God, my odds here are better like like sound inshallah. Mashallah Allah you know it you know it? Oh Allah I want to make before on along mommy absolutely, guys. The first time my my aunt who is beloved to me, she in this story happens to be my aunt. She said to me, she said with some pray, like the most religious relative is over. And I was like,

00:31:36--> 00:31:53

she said that when you pray to Allah subhanaw taala like that. It'll put a little tingle in your spine that says, oh, wow, Allah, my bad. Like puts you back in front of a law. We know what we're supposed to do. But sometimes everything is going wrong. And I have excuses.

00:31:54--> 00:32:26

So thus, make easier make easier entry point. So if I could just read a comment, friends, and we send you love and kindness in this 22nd day of Ramadan. We know that we're supposed to do Grodd said to do this grant said I know that five prayers in a day, adding the flavor. Grant already told me to do it. And I'm supposed to pray five times a day if I don't, I'm going to hell. But what about when everything's against me? What about when everything goes wrong? And my own inner stories and excuses kick in.

00:32:28--> 00:33:16

I say entry levels to a loan. Right now say God, this is really good. I feel connected to God. With brother in South Africa and Ridwan and all these doors. I feel connected to people around the world through this through you. Can you supercharge one or two names right now Roxanna and say Oh Allah, this is what I have everybody hums the everyone from the Instagram world. Uhm Nafisa and family Jawad with Sam, can you all pick a few words right now? A few names have a last minute data and say I'm supercharging these right now so that when I'm alone, Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice will be my entry level point. Over dude over dude over dude.

00:33:20--> 00:33:41

I feel like I may have offended a past self. But I feel comfortable for you to say pick up a few of the gems now and say God has these names are Rahmani Raheem Rama Rama Rama Rahim and snap out of the excuses snap out of that moment of everything's going against me. A sit. Yes, Adar Yes.

when I figure out and rationalize all of Islam, then I'll follow it.

00:53:46--> 00:53:50

When I figure out why everything, then I'll do it.

00:53:51--> 00:53:55

It didn't work for shavonne. Guys, it didn't work for shaytaan.

00:53:57--> 00:54:00

Well, he won't even speak we'll just understand we'll be in the presence of God. So I don't know all of the realities. I can't explain all of the pain in the world right now.

00:55:54--> 00:56:10
