And the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah Subhana Allah make us amongst those who listen to the best of speech, the book of Allah and follow its commandments.

Allah Subhana Allah tells us in the Quran, that the month of Ramadan during which the Quran was revealed, only monster be mentioned by name in the Quran. And that is because of

00:04:11--> 00:04:26

this very special event that took place and that is the initial revelation of the Quran took place during the month of Ramadan. What makes this month special is the book of Allah subhanaw taala the Quran

00:04:27--> 00:04:33

and then the Quran tells us about itself in the hurdle Quran Yeah, ideally let's see here.

00:04:35--> 00:04:54

Indeed, this Quran guides people to the best of ways. And the word best here is not superlative, meaning that other ways are also good but the Quran is the best no this like an absolute V way. The only way is the way of the is the way of the Quran.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

And this is a beautiful, marvelous, impressive book

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

so impressive that even the opponents of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during his time were impressed by this book.

00:05:09--> 00:05:48

It was said that one time, unbelievable movie era, every now and then he was like this major opponent of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam living in Mecca. But every now and then he would want to listen to the Quran. And he would say nice things about the Quran, and the other metal elites. They became very worried and evil, Walid converts. It's going to be all doom and gloom. Abuja has said, I'll take care of it. He goes to him and he said, By the way, we in Makkah, we are collecting some, you know, raising funds for you know, man was very offended, said, raising funds for me. Do you know, know that I am one of the richest, if not the richest individual in Makkah. He

00:05:48--> 00:06:38

said, Well, you've been going to Muhammad and we think that you've been, you know, visiting him because you wanted to get some of his charity and he was so upset. Why would people say that about me? And then he tells him the following. He said, Well, you've been saying something nice about the Quran. And listen to this, the man said, By Allah, His book is impressive. When Allah He in La de la Halawa in NA, Allahu La Mancha. They were in that as well a hook lemma. He said, How can I not, he said, This book is full of sweet and grace, the upper part of it is fruitful. The lower part of it like a tree is copious meaningful of abundance, walla Hilah, who will be coded Koha and the

00:06:38--> 00:06:46

coalition by Allah it's not the words of the sorcerers and it is not the words of the magicians. Impressive book.

00:06:47--> 00:07:44

But today Insha Allah, we want to look into this idea of Yeah, the lady here can guide people to the best of ways, the way that is best for humanity. see around us. So what is our role needs most at this point? Some would say our world needs our world needs a lot of of love through our world needs a lot of Rama compassion through our world needs a lot of charity through our world needs a lot of justice through now listen how the Quran speaks about this. Specifically today, given what is happening, how does the Quran addressed the notion of justice? Five Ways? Five beautiful, impressive ways. Number one, justice is an attribute of Allah. Shaheed Allahu Allahu Allah, Allah Illa Illa.

00:07:44--> 00:08:24

Who will mela equal to we're all enemy, or even bill passed. Allah base witness, Allah Who no other is worthy of worship but him. Allah bears witness, the angels bear witness, those who are endowed with knowledge bear witness that Allah stands firmly for justice. That is an attribute of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah stands for justice. And we've been taught the HELOC will be Allah Billa derive your manners from the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. The first thing that comes to us in the Quran is that this idea that Allah subhanaw taala himself stands up for justice.

00:08:26--> 00:09:15

Second way then we are told that the reason why Allah sent messengers, since books like the Quran, like the Torah like the gospel is for the establishment of justice your whole lot of Bucha Loyola law RSL now rose we will build a unit where Ansel Nana whom will Kitab or will Meezan Lea Alma NASA will cost we have indeed sent Our Messengers was clear signs, and along with them we send the Scripture and the scale of right and wrong, what for Leah commonness will just so that people may establish justice so that people may stablish justice Why did Allah send Subhana Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam or ISA Musa all these messengers Leah commonness will cast so that people

00:09:15--> 00:09:17

may uphold justice.

00:09:18--> 00:09:59

And then the Quran gives a clear direct command to the believers that they ought to stand up for justice. But remember this my brothers and sisters see justice is what we call is an absolute value. It's an absolute virtue. What does that mean? See with other virtues, there might be in theory a time where it's okay not to apply that virtue for example, it's okay to be you must be truthful, but there are certain times where telling the truth is not is not necessarily a must. It's okay not to tell the truth. How did the food taste how do I look how

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

Is this in matters of preference, you may not really believe what you're saying. But for a higher virtue, you may not be as truthful.

00:10:09--> 00:10:30

Of course the Quran here is not promoting line, there is a difference between acknowledging and encouraging. We're just acknowledging that we're not encouraging this type of behavior. But when it comes to justice, it's an absolute value. There is never a time where it's okay not to be just off to be fair.

00:10:31--> 00:11:04

And because we are human beings, we are best tested when we are emotionally invested. And the strongest emotions that we human beings are capable of experiencing is love or hate. So the UN brilliantly addresses both issues when it comes to the concept of justice where Allah subhanaw taala in two different places in the Quran, Allah tells us Yeah, are you Halina? Amma know? Who knew Shahada?

00:11:05--> 00:11:58

Amina Elahi shahada mystery, wala Yajima na Commissioner Amin, Allah, Allah Tadeu dealu, who Acropolis where Allah Subhana Allah says are you believe, stand firmly steadfast for obeying the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala as people who carry out justice and then listen to this, and do not let your hatred of other people hinder you from rendering justice be just even if it be in favor of your enemy will lie That is incredible. A book that tells you, you carry out justice because it's an absolute virtue, even if in the carrying of justice. It is good to be in favor of your enemy, Allah subhanaw taala said do it and you who are accountable.

00:11:59--> 00:12:12

And that's why Allah said stand up for the commandments of Allah Subhana Allah Wamena Lila and then in the other place, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us you are you Halina

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

tells us that yeah you are Latina,

00:12:17--> 00:13:05

who Awami Anabaptist, shahada, Allah, Ya Allah, Allah and possible, I will validate and I will occur Robin, are you believe stand firmly for justice is steadfast are obeying the commands of Allah Subhana Allah. And now you can see this which where the Quran now speaks about justice, before speaking about standing up standing steadfast for obeying the commands of Allah subhanaw taala because of what follows is, whenever possible, even if it be against your own selves, even if it be against your own parents, even if it be against your own relatives, and boosts you come, well, then I will occur Robin.

00:13:06--> 00:13:28

And then Allah Subhana Allah said, By the way, there is this idea of what we call deceptive compassion. I am going to stand up for the poor person because they're poor. And I'm going to stand up for the rich because they are rich, because these people are inherently weak and these are inherent, Allah Subhana Allah says, no, no, no, that is none of your business.

00:13:29--> 00:13:35

In fact, parent or guardian, Allahu Allah be him, be it that they are

00:13:36--> 00:13:52

poor, or they are rich, Allah subhanaw taala will take care of that do not make that your business. And this is a beautiful book. Because in normal circumstances, we are all capable of being failed. We are all capable of being, you know,

00:13:53--> 00:14:43

equality is important to us. But we are most tested, when our emotions are involved. And Allah said, despite how strongly you feel beat, love or beat head, beat your own self beat your enemy, ALLAH SubhanA, Allah says unconditionally, you have got to render, you've got to render justice. You don't want people out there nowadays are chanting, No justice, no peace. There is so much truth in that statement. Wallahi there is a lot of truth in that statement. You cannot expect peace, unless you render justice. Sometimes we are wrong in conceptualizing what it is that we want with peace, what is meant by peace? And what is it that we mean by Justice, that these concepts are so beautifully

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

clarified in the Quran? For example, the idea of what we mean by peace, if you ask most people, what is Peace to you? We would most certainly say that peace is the absence of outer conflict, absence of outer conflict

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

There is no war. Oh Subhanallah so that's that's peace. That's all you want absence of outer conflict. How about this? How about you have no outer conflict, but there is a lot of disease is this the peace that you want? How about this? There is no outer conflict but there is a lot of poverty. Is this the piece that you want? And that is why the idea of Salam in the Quran, Quran says it would be ridiculous to expect outer peace before you've achieved inner peace and even the way that we go about wanting to achieve the outer peace, even in that we become erroneous. Listen to this. It was said that one time

00:15:42--> 00:16:16

I've had a Muslim with visited the prophets Allah Allah Allah Who knocks on the door, or the Prophet SAW Selim visits avoided massaman knocks on the door and says salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah hiya at whole elige salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah do I come in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and they say Allah tells his family to hush, and the old whisper Valley masala the process and cannot hear. He knocks against Salam aleikum. Warahmatullah wabarakatuh do I come in again the entire family

00:16:17--> 00:16:24

but the person cannot hear for the third time he knocks on door door salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah I come in Salah.

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

And then the process of them starts walking away.

00:16:28--> 00:16:53

Oh, by the opens the door, said prophet of Allah by Allah I heard every greeting that you have mentioned that listen to this, he said prophet of Allah, you taught us that to greet a person with a Salaam Alaikum is a form of dua, it's a form of praise. Prophet of Allah, you taught us that your prayers are never rejected by Allah. So I want to do to pray for me and for my family as many times as possible.

00:16:54--> 00:17:16

Imagine Muhammad Allah Allah wa salam comes and tells you As salam o Alikum, what do you say? One more time Prophet Allah please say it one more time. I want to hear it one more time. Why is that? Because when we come in we greet one another as a Salem, may all your affairs not just financially not just health wise, not just me, all your affairs be in the state of silly

00:17:17--> 00:17:34

That's why Allah Subhana Allah in paradise tells us what Allah who you're the ruler, daddy salaam, Allah invites people to the abode of Salam where there is nothing missing. The word Salaam in Arabic means anything that is in the state of wholeness, completeness, no deficiency.

00:17:35--> 00:18:14

So when we say we want salah, this is what comes to mind. And then the most beautiful is when Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us who was Salah moon may know that one of the attributes of Allah is that Allah himself is a Salam subhanho wa Taala then comes in this idea of justice. So that's how the Quran speaks about, but what is it? What what is it? What do we mean when we say we want justice? Some people say, justice, is when we give others every right that we ask for ourselves. That is justice.

00:18:15--> 00:18:27

Al farabi, a Muslim theologian, problematic figure, nevertheless, this statement is beautiful, that he made, he said, justice, is the ethics of sharing.

00:18:28--> 00:18:33

What do you mean? He said, no good is good. If it's only good for you,

00:18:35--> 00:18:40

the goodness of goods, the best of goods, or shared goods,

00:18:41--> 00:18:51

what good is my health? If everybody around me is not healthy, it further enhances my own health, that the people around me Be healthy.

00:18:52--> 00:19:44

What good is my freedom? If the people around me are not free? It further enhances my own freedom, that the people around me are also free. So he says, justice is the ethics of sharing. Because the goodest of goods, the best of goods are shared goods. And when people live like this, we will say we are implementing justice, in our way in achieving this idea of peace. May Allah Subhana Allah make us facilitators for peaches, Justice Europa Alameen. May Allah make us of those who render justice even if it be in favor of our enemies, that we render justice even if it means that we stand up against ourselves? May Allah Subhana Allah increases in understanding our parliament. Apolo colocado

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

Jaya salatu salam ala Rasulillah Hello Mustafa wilderman via Hasakah. So our world needs peace is justice, then our world is desperate for compassion and kindness, compassion and kindness. You know that the most repeated attribute of Allah in the Quran is Rama. The most repeated attribute of Allah in the Quran is the attribute of compassion and mercy, the mind of throughout the Quran, we are reminded of that, you know, towards the end of the year, people will hold the D Nobel Prize for Literature. I'm always fascinated by this idea who's going to win this year? What did they write? And what happens is when you look into the people that won these literature prizes, they usually

00:20:59--> 00:21:04

they say that because this individual spoke universally,

00:21:05--> 00:21:51

the idea of speaking universally. So for example, the most read poet in the West in the West in the West that we live in is Jalaluddin Rumi never get tired of telling the story. I was at the Unitarian Church, giving a presentation about Islam. And prior to the presentation, the choir was singing a very beautiful song Allah, it was a beautiful hymn. Come, come, whoever you are, it was such a beautiful hymn. And I leaned over to the pastor, and he said, Can I get a copy of this hymn? Pastor hands me the flyer, and it was a piece of poetry, and it was written by Mowlana Jalaluddin Rumi. Rumi did not live in the West, but yet he's read in the West. He did not speak English, but most

00:21:51--> 00:22:06

English readers are reading, he is not Caucasian, he is of a different ethnicity, different geographic location, different religious beliefs, yet he is the most read why is that? People say because he spoke universally.

00:22:08--> 00:22:16

What is the what is what does it mean to speak universally, they say to speak universally, is when the human in me speaks to the human any,

00:22:17--> 00:22:37

then we're speaking universally, not internationally, we're speaking universally, the human in me speaks to the human in you. And as such, what is the most common, the most common universal language on the earth? The most universal count language is compassion.

00:22:39--> 00:23:01

See, if you see a young person helping an elderly person cross the street. It doesn't matter what language you speak, what religion you believe in, how old you are, what ethnic background you come from, you know what just took place. An elderly person walks in, you're on the bus and you get up and you give up your seat. Everybody knows what you did. Why? Because you spoke universally.

00:23:02--> 00:23:12

And that is why when Allah subhanaw taala presents Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What does Allah say, Wilma of silica Allah, Muhammad,

00:23:13--> 00:23:38

O Muhammad we have sent you but as a mercy to mankind shall beautiful this book is. See how beautiful this book is? How impressive this book is. The book uses what we call, it's so common sense. But sometimes this book needs to be looked at. See the Quran is an easy book. But easy does not mean effortless.

00:23:39--> 00:24:23

It's easy, but it doesn't mean that it is effortless. And our job is to look into this book. The message it is already universal message. Because this is what the Quran speaks, speaks about justice, about peace, about compassion, our job is to take it and make it relevant and make it and give it in a language that can actually be understood. And most important, of course, it must be also implemented by those who claim to believe in it. Because as they say, if what you believe in does not impact how you behave. Then what you believe in is not important.

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

If what you believe in does not impact how we behave, then what we believe in is not important. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to pray Allahu Magellan or Anna Robbie oppo lubaina Your Allah make this Quran spring of our hearts the best time of the year.
