Episode Notes

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi delves into the need of building a relationship with the Quran via constant and frequent recitation. 

The verses referenced are verses 57-58 of Surah Yunus where Allah SWT says (to the effect) :“O mankind, there has to come to you instruction from your Lord and a healing for what is in the breasts and guidance and mercy for the believers. Say, “In the bounty of Allah and in His mercy – in that let them rejoice; it is better than what they accumulate.”

The Fadhl of Allah is the Prophet (SAW) and the Rahmah of Allah is the Qur’an. To recite the Qur’an is a sign of Iman. The one who recites the Qur’an fluently is with the noble angels in Heaven. The Qur’an will be a means of salvation on the Day of Judgement. According to a Hadith, the one who has perfected the recitation and memorization of the Qur’an will be placed in the highest level of Jannah.

5 beautiful adjectives used by Allah SWT to adorn the Qur’an with:

  • Mauidhah – Emotional advice 
  • Shifa 
  • Hudan 
  • Burhan 
  • Rahmah

To recite the Qur’an is a sign of Iman.

smilla al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah, He will be one word.

00:00:18--> 00:01:09

In surah Yunus verse versus 57 to 58. We just decided, Allah subhana wa Taala says, Yeah, you hand us all mankind, or the judge como or elbow to mill Rob become there has come to you a mower elbow, and the mower elbow means a warning and an advice that reaches the heart. A memorial is an emotional warning. It's a warning that will make you emotionally awake. So this is a moment of our meaning the Quran. So Allah says from your Lord has come a moment over or the judge Kumar electromedical have become and what else what she found only mafioso door. And a she found a means of cure for all that is in the hearts. So the heart has diseases. And these are not the diseases of medicine. These are

00:01:09--> 00:01:59

the diseases of soul. These are not the diseases of the body. This is the disease of the roar. So Allah says the Quran is a Shiva only MOF is sure the Quran is a means of cleansing and purifying and healing the diseases of the heart. Well, who doesn't and the guidance to tell you from truth from falsehood, right from evil, what a hammer and a mercy for the believers. And then Allah says, Allah will be fought lilla he was mighty he fabbi Daddy, careful you have to tell them, let them rejoice at a loss blessings and mercy. That is why they should be happy. That is why they should have happiness. Even a boss said, the father of Allah is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the

00:01:59--> 00:02:44

rahima of Allah is the Quran, old befogged lilla he was the remedy for vaidika failure. Let them be happy and rejoice at the fact that they have the Prophet and the fact that they have the Quran. This is any reason if you want to be happy, this is a reason you should be happy. So Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the Quran with five or six beautiful adjectives. The Quran is a mower ever. It is an emotional advice. It's something that reaches the heart and Subhanallah even those who do not understand Arabic When the Quran is being recited, it has an impact on the heart. It is a MOBA. The Quran is a Shiva. So when you have doubts when you're feeling down, when you're feeling depressed,

00:02:44--> 00:03:29

when you need a little bit of of energy of the soul, you turn to the Quran for the Shiva. The Quran is a houden a guidance. The Quran will tell you right from wrong. Look at the world around us. Morality keeps on changing every generation. What is right today becomes wrong tomorrow. What is wrong today becomes right tomorrow keeps on changing. The Quran is Surat and was stuck in the Quran is the criterion. In another description, a law called the Quran for the Judge cumbre hanamura. There has come to you Abraham, and beforehand means what separates right from wrong, but Han means the criterium. bardhan means the difference so it is the banahan from your Lord. And then finally

00:03:29--> 00:04:13

Allah says it is a Rama it is a means of mercy. So reciting the Quran is mercy. Believing in the Quran is mercy. memorizing the Quran is mercy. In a famous Hadith, our Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned, in fact, a Sahabi came to him and he said, O Messenger of Allah, I was reciting the Quran last night, and I saw a light come down and it was hovering over my head. And the Prophet system said till kurama tilaka Sakina that is the Rama that is the Sakina that came down from Allah to listen to you, our scholars say the meaning here it was the angels themselves that came down to listen to the Sahabi merely by reciting the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah sakeena by the presence of

00:04:13--> 00:04:53

the angels was manifested, and therefore brothers and sisters, as we know, this is the month of the Koran. This is the month that the Quran is supposed to be recited, it is supposed to be heard, it is the month that the book should be made. tilawat should be done. We have already mentioned that this was the month God would come every single night and the Prophet system would recite the Quran to him and God would recite back to the Prophet system. Ghana yo creo que la la la every Laila the Quran, we decided back and forth between the Prophet system and Djibouti. And based on this, our scholars have extracted what we are doing in total, we're to recite the whole Koran and the whole month they

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

are basing it on this hadith as well. This is the month Allah says Shahada Ramadan under the own zero

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

field are on this is the month of the Quran. So let us make it a habit to daily in this month to recite whatever of the Quran that we can to recite the Quran is a sign of Iman, Allah says in the Quran Luma or a communicator, recite what Allah has revealed, Allah says in the Quran, Allah Deena Tina who will Kitab yet Luna who Hakata What are those we have given the book, they recite the Quran the way that it deserves to be recited. So a sign of truly believing in the Quran is to recite it and the one who recites the Quran fluently our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah who will or Arima suffer until caramel Bharara The one who recites the Quran fluidly pause here, who is

00:05:45--> 00:06:25

the one who recites the Quran fluently it's the one who knows what he's reciting is the one who keeps on doing it over and over and over again, it's the one who has made it a habit to recite the Quran. The only way you can recite the Quran fluently is not just by reading Arabic, even the best person who reads Arabic, if he opens up a page of the Quran, and he's never read it, he's gonna go slowly, but even somebody who's not a halfling, but he's read the Quran every single day. He's gonna have some fluency in the recitation. And that's the point here on my YouTube channel, or on the one who can recite the Quran fluently is with the noble angels. He's going to be with the noble angels

00:06:26--> 00:07:03

in heaven, and the one who recites the Quran, and he flips and he fumbles, he's having difficulty. Even that person, our Profit System said further who agilon he's gonna get double the reward. In other words, simply being with the Quran, engaging the Quran, it is an act of worship, and especially in this month, brothers and sisters, we have to make an extra dedication and extra effort, try to finish the book at least once if you're able to do so. And for those who haven't started is still not too late. We still have more than half the month or on half of the month left, it is still possible to finish up the book. Let us make it a part of our routine in this month, and

00:07:03--> 00:07:43

then inshallah afterwards we continue our relationship. Realize dear brothers and sisters, that the Oran is one of the greatest means of salvation. On the day of judgment, our Prophet system said both the fasting and the siyam they will come as a shofar for their companions, and the fast will say, Oh Allah, I deprived him of food and drink and the Quran is going to say a lot I deprived him of sleep, so try your best to be deprived of sleep even for a little bit and read the Quran at night so that at least we'll have a little bit of share of this hadith. We learn in the Hadith as well that on the Day of Judgment, the Quran will come and bring somebody with him and the Quran will say Oh Allah put

00:07:43--> 00:08:29

a garment of honor on him hula hoop so Allah will place the garment on him then the Quran will say oh a lot of places attach place the crown on his head and then attach your crown will be placed on his head and another Hadith we learned that on judgment day. A law will say to the Sahaba Quran Sahib means the one who has always with the Quran, Sahib means he's always reading the Quran, Allah will say to the Sahaba of the Quran, if corrupt word Chucky Kama Sutra to the dunya. Read and recite and as you recite you shall rise up like you recited in the dunya but this time for every ayah you recite the Hadith says you will go one level up in general, for every IR you recite some of our

00:08:29--> 00:09:11

scholars have said this is of the greatest encouragement to memorize the Quran. And I said that the levels of heaven are equal to the number of verses of the Quran because no one will be higher than the one who is truly Halford of the Quran. So the levels of heaven are equal to the number of verses of the Quran such that the one who has memorized the Quran understood it and acted upon it will be in the very highest category of gender. So brothers and sisters, this is the month of the Quran. Let us try our best to form a relationship with the Quran especially in this month, a relationship that will continue afterwards as well. And also on a personal note, brothers and sisters, from my own

00:09:11--> 00:09:55

life experiences will law he went I am depressed when I face a crisis. When anything happens. Nothing tears me up more than reading the Koran. Nothing brings a sense of peace and comfort. Nothing can eliminate the stress in my own life than turning to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala truly the Quran is a Shiva, it is a Rama it is a means of mercy and salvation. And our Prophet sallallahu Sallam left us with a very dire warning, or an urge to laka O Allah on the Day of Judgment. The Quran will either be a witness for you, or it shall be a witness against you only two categories. Which of those two categories Do you want to be in? That's a question you need to ask

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

yourself and then act according to that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala cause the orange
