It's a journey, and therefore the reading of the whole and the memorization of the Quran has always been the pursuit of

00:02:59--> 00:03:42

every Muslim. It must always be returned to you and I in our heart that the Quran is an aim for myself and you to seek nearness to Allah subhana wa Tada. It is a vicar al Hakim the why is this remembrance in Scripture, it is the protection in this dunya and alcohol. It is the words that we read to protect ourselves spiritually and physically from ailment she felt when the masses subdued, it is a healing to what troubles the heart, it is a healing to the illness illnesses of the body. How would you say in Haryana be healed Koran and then Allah natadola be the Imam ukemi says of the ways that we've turned away from the Quran is that we don't seek to cure our life and our reasons

It is begun with the Fatiha and ends with anass It begins with an opening and continues with the final chapter which is about our relationship with Allah as humanity. hula hula verbenas I asked a lot to protect me He is the protector of of his creation, humanity. So Hannah, what to Allah? Why is the foreign significant because it is the word of Allah that has been revealed upon Mohammed Salim that when you recite it, you earn reward and no other text earns a reward.

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

it is collected in the Muslim world today is a part of our belief. And it is metabo Dubey. Tila, it it is something that has been shared with us and has been conveyed to us in so many oral traditions and writings, that is undeniable. It is not a book of science, but it is a book of wisdom and you will find allusions to science in it that which we have discovered and that which is yet to be discovered. But it's not meant to be read like a journal. It's meant to be read to affect our life and bring change and to give us clarity in times of hardship and darkness.

In the Quran are parables and examples that give us hope and patience and resilience and, and trust in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and I want you and I to make this commitment that each and every day there will be a new verse each and every day there will be a new attempt that either we learn to read it and memorize it or learn to understand it. And do not ever be dissuaded by the fact that you might not understand the photo and because you're non Arab in nature.

That's why you have extremists who will twist the meaning of the Quran to their agenda, and you will have people who are usurpers of the knowledge who will twist

00:06:17--> 00:06:57

the meaning of the Quran to diluted and watered down to make it seem like it says something that it doesn't actually say. And both of them both examples are extremists in their pursuit of the knowledge that is the student in the practice of the Oregon center yourself with the reading of the book of Allah, be familiar with it, establish a with a regular daily reading a regular daily amount you memorize that there are regular daily reading of its meaning and a regular daily acquaintance of its interpretation. And I hope that all luck and allow us to contribute towards that for your betterment and ours and our families. Well, suddenly lahoma wa Sallim wa barik ala Sayidina.
