Don't forget furie

00:00:24--> 00:01:04

salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While early he was I be wondering I'm about so we are doing the various doors to Jenna and today or this lecture inshallah to either will be one of the easiest and best and one of the most blessed doors to Jenna. And that is the door of the recitation of the Quran, the recitation of the Quran and what a beautiful and blessed door it is. It is a door that has no ending to it. It is a door that once you enter it, you yourself will enjoy it and it will be not it will not become an act of mundane worship, it will become an act that is spiritually pleasing to you. It is one of the most

00:01:04--> 00:01:45

reinvigorating acts of worship. And that is the pure blessing act of reciting the Quran for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. You know, some handler one, the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam and we're in the 10 blessed days we're in the days of Hajj, imagine this when the Prophet Ibrahim Addison was building the Kava for the first time. Do you know one of the doors that he made? He said Robin whenever I see him Rasulullah Minh, whom yet who I lay him it was named Mohammad Al Kitab al hikma to say music to him, he brought he made it to our 1000s of years ago. And he said, Oh Allah, send amongst my children, a prophet. And I want that prophet to recite your verses to them. And to teach

00:01:45--> 00:02:28

them your book, Ibrahim made a dua to Allah that He wanted amongst his own progeny, somebody that will teach the keytab to mankind. And of course, that was the fulfillment of our Prophet salallahu idea he was setting them coming with the haoran the Koran and the Prophet system were both do is that Ibrahim made in other words, the effect of that he made a dua to Allah that Oh, a lot. I want one of my sons after me to teach mankind your final book. And this was the fulfillment of the legacy of the Prophet salallahu idea he was setting them our father Ibrahim, pray to Allah while building the character to send mankind the messenger and to reveal a book that was full of wisdom and to

00:02:28--> 00:03:12

teach them that which would need they need to know and so handling the Quran is indeed one of the most in fact we can say it is the biggest blessing that Allah has given us. All we need to do is open up the Quran and see the order of blessings that Allah mentions a man who LML Khurana halaqaat insana, Allah who began, three blessings are mentioned and notice in which order they are mentioned, man, I will ml Quran man taught the Koran and He created man and he taught men how to speak notice the order. The Quran is a bigger blessing than the creation of mankind. Our existence is predicated upon the existence of the Koran, there would have been no point to create us if there would be no

00:03:12--> 00:03:53

Quran. Allah azza wa jal had already revealed the Quran meaning it is there. Of course the Koran is eternal, that Allah azza wa jal had already taught the Koran it is in the knowledge of Allah subhana wa Tada. The Quran is the uncreated speech of Allah, and that's what he said. And then he said Harlequin insan created mankind. And Allah azzawajal reminds us in the Quran, that He is worthy of being praised because he has revealed this book a lot is worthy of being worshipped. One of the reasons why we worship a lot is because he has revealed the horror onto us Alhamdulillah Hilary ends and Abdel Kitab tabela contadina. settle for corner Allah Abdi Alhamdulillah and Tavella Kala who

00:03:53--> 00:04:37

revealed this book who revealed the criterion Allah subhana wa tada praises the Quran and he says Allah who knows that an accidental Hadith Nikita bamboo Tisha via Allah has revealed the best of all speech. It is a book that is complimentary. It is a book that each part of it supports the other parts. Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the Koran as a blessing as a guidance as a source of cure and healing for mankind. When who knows zero means for any man who has shift own words, to live meaning we reveal in this or on that which is a cure. And that which is a mercy for the believers and Allah xojo commands us to rejoice at the Koran. Yeah you Hannah's for the Judge camarilla to

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

murghab become where she found him after sudo reboot and Rama to live meaning all mankind it has come to you from your Lord, that which is an admonition and an advice and that which is a cure for all of the diseases of the heart and that which is a guidance and that which is a mercy for all of mankind. And then Allah says in this let the people rejoice. kolby Delica for

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

We've added value that allows or just says that in this let the people of happiness rejoice in this. And so we are happy at the last revelation of the Quran unto us, Paul before the law he will be at a fair bit of algebra who who are higher on mimma jejomar own. And Allah azza wa jal says that of the signs of the believers are that they rejoice in the recitation and the revelation of the Quran will lead into it now whom will Kitab Ah, yeah, for a whole Nebula under the lake, that those that we have given the book, they rejoice at that which has been revealed unto you and our Prophet sallallahu Sallam himself commanded us to be happy at the existence of the Quran amongst our midst,

00:05:43--> 00:06:28

he said in a hadith in the Muslim Libyan Mohammed, Abu I command you to be happy, I give you a good glad tidings. Why? Because this Koran that you're reciting, one part of it is in your hands and the other part is in the hands of Allah subhana wa Tada. So as long as you hold on to it, you shall never go astray after it. This is a beautiful Hadith. He is telling us that the Quran is a direct linkage between us and Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is why he says whoever holds on to it shall never go astray. The Koran is the spiritual food of mankind by reading the Quran. Our Eman is reinvigorated. The Quran is the light and it is the guidance that takes us from the darkness of the

00:06:28--> 00:07:10

darkness is the darkness of prejudice, the darkness of ignorance, and it guides us to the light of toe hate and the light of Islam. Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran, yeah, you know so Khadija acampo hanamura Zen de la comme Lu ROM bobina, or mankind, the clear evidence has come to you from your Lord and a shining light has come down to you a shining light. So the Quran has been described as a clear evidence and a shining light and that is why reading the Quran increases our own light, it takes away the darkness is of our own doubts and nothing brings peace to the heart, like the recitation of the Quran. Nothing reinvigorates our E man like opening up the book of Allah subhana

00:07:10--> 00:07:52

wa tada and constantly reciting it and that is why the command to recite the Quran occurs in many verses and in many a hadith Allah subhana wa tada says, Rama or a communicator will walk the Masada recite what has been revealed to you from the book and Allah says that were omitted to avoid commanded an athlete or an to recite the Quran. So reciting the Quran is one of the best actions of worship. And that is why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever recites even one word of the Koran shall get 10 good deeds. And then he said, but I'm not even saying that Alhamdulillah already flat meme is one word rather an LFO counter is a full word and alarm will count as a full

00:07:52--> 00:08:34

word and a mean will count as a full word. And he encouraged those who have difficulty reading the Quran. He encourages that don't worry about it, because in that beautiful Hadith, he said, the one who is fluent in reciting the Quran, he is with the noble angels, and the one who is reciting with difficulty he's stumbling, and he's struggling, that person, he shall get a double reward, he's not going to get a single reward, he's going to get a double reward. Don't worry, just keep on trying. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you a double reward merely for the attempt of reciting the Koran and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the Quran is going to be a intercession

00:08:34--> 00:09:10

for us on the Day of Judgment. And he said that the Quran is going to raise certain people on the day of judgment and debase other people. And he said that the Quran is either going to guide you towards or take you back against meaning towards gender or, or the will or the black towards the jahannam. And he told us that the Quran is going to be a light for us. And he reminded us that the Orion is going to be the ultimate intercessor for those who recited it and memorized it. And he told us in one headed that Iran is going to argue with a law with regards to those used to recite, and the Quran will say that, Oh Allah, I was the one who you know, deprive this person from so much

00:09:10--> 00:09:50

other things he was doing because he recited me because he spent time with me, so I beg you, oh ally plead your law that you forgive this person and our profits of the law. While you said I've said that the intercession of the Koran is going to be accepted by Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And our Prophet system also said, the best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach it unto others. So dear brothers and sisters, I encourage all of you to make the Quran a regular routine of your lives, increase your knowledge of it, learn how to recite it, the science of reciting the Quran, it is called as read. It is the easiest of all Islamic sciences. It's literally a set of rules that can be

00:09:50--> 00:10:00

done in 1520 pages, just little bit of rules here. Where do you elongate where do you do this and that find a foreign teacher because you will enjoy learning the rules of digital

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

And learning to implement them listen to good recitation of the Quran. And by the way, reciting the Quran and listening to the Quran are two separate good deeds, each one of them has its own reward. And so increase in reciting the Quran and listening to the Quran, surround yourself with the Quran. Let no day go by, except that you recite even just a few minutes of the Koran and if you're able to also begin to memorize a little bit bit by bit, each one of these deeds is a blessing into an of itself reading the Quran, listening to the Quran, memorizing the Quran, understanding the Quran, each one of these are different acts of worship, but they are interconnected together because once

00:10:39--> 00:11:19

you start one of them automatically, you're going to increase in all of them. And the Quran is indeed the greatest blessing that Allah subhana wa tada has given us, it is what takes our our doubts and our diseases of the heart away and it cures us from anything that we have in our hearts, and it is really the spiritual food of the soul. Nothing brings about a stronger sense of a man than reciting the Quran. And therefore one of the easiest path to gender one of the greatest paths to gender. One of the most interesting doors to gender is the door of the Quran. Let us be of the people of the Koran whom Allah loves. Let us be of those who recite the Quran. Let us be of those

00:11:19--> 00:11:32

who are fluent in the Quran. Let us be of those who associate with the Quran. Let us be amongst the people of the Quran. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from all of us. I will see you in our final lecture inshallah tada until then said I'm heading to LA
