Welcome to the show, Ramadan date with Dr. Zakir I'm your host, Yousef chambers. And today we are discussing the topic Ramadan, the month of focus on Part One

00:01:18--> 00:01:50

assalamu alikum walaikum salam wa rahmatullah wa barakato. The month of the glorious quarter an such an important topic. And I'd first like to begin by asking you for a definition of terms once again. Can you define the term for the benefit of our non Muslim viewers? What does Cora an actually mean? 100 Allah, wa Salatu was Salam O Allah fully love Allah Allah was ibH main ama but

00:01:52--> 00:02:00

also Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, rubbishing Saturday, we certainly Emily 100 of the Tamil srtf Gokhale.

00:02:02--> 00:02:10

The word Quran is derived from the Arabic word cara, which means to read, or to recite.

00:02:11--> 00:02:16

And Quran means the recitation or the reading.

00:02:18--> 00:02:21

The Quran is the last and final revelation

00:02:23--> 00:02:28

of Allah subhanho wa Taala, which was revealed to the last and final messenger, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

00:02:30--> 00:02:38

And Allah subhana wa Taala has sent down several revolutions. Allah says in Surah chapter number 13 was the MetaTrader liquidity.

00:02:40--> 00:03:01

In every age, have we sent down revolution, there were many by name formation in the Quran, Torah, the Buddha engineer in the Quran, Torah is the way he the revelation, which was given to Moses peace be upon the board is that he the revelation, which was revealed to Prophet David peace be upon him.

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

And in Gil is gonna heat the revolution, which was revealed to Prophet Jesus peace be upon him. And Quran is the last and final revelation, which was given to the last and final messenger, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. So if there's something like the Old Testament and the New Testament, then Quran is the last estimate. The Koran actually is a ye it is a revelation. Normally people think that what is the book, actually the book Quran, the right Arabic word is most half.

00:03:29--> 00:03:38

So Quran is actually a revelation of Allah subhanaw taala which was given to the last and final messenger Prophet Mohammed belong

00:03:40--> 00:03:44

Hello, hello, I think that is a very appropriate way to begin the topic.

00:03:45--> 00:03:59

Second question, I'd like to put to you, if I may, is can you mention the various names and attributes which Allah subhanho wa Taala uses to describe the quarter an

00:04:00--> 00:04:03

in the Quran, or with the Quran.

00:04:04--> 00:04:16

There are many umpteen number of attributes and names used by Allah Spano Allah in the Quran for the Horan. I'll just mention a few that that I can recollect immediately.

00:04:17--> 00:04:29

Allah refers to the Quran as the fork on the criteria to judge right from wrong in Surah Furqan. Chapter 25 was number one, and there is a full chapter chapter number 25.

00:04:30--> 00:04:38

Named after that forgone criteria which is right from wrong. It's also the insert of Baccarat chapter two was the mighty five word for can is used.

00:04:39--> 00:05:00

Allah subhanaw taala also describes the Quran as pan zeal. That is revelation. Instead of Shara chapter number 26 less than one entity. It is described as a ticker. That is the message in Saudi Arabia, Chapter 21 verse number 50. It's also described as the Kitab that's the

00:05:00--> 00:05:29

Book Club is called as the book also as a way as a revolution. In sort of use of Japanese material was number one, it is described as newer, meaning the light in Surah Nisa, chapter four was number 174. It is described as Buddha, meaning guidance in Surah Baqarah. Chapter Two was number two, as well as chapter two was number 185. It is described as Rama meaning blessings. In sorry,

00:05:30--> 00:05:48

milkman, Chapter 31, verse number three, it's also described as Majid meaning glorious in sort of orange, Chapter 85 was number 21. This call as Mubarak meaning blessings, in sorry for chapter number 30, it was from 29. It is

00:05:49--> 00:06:11

described as Bashir, when the good news in Surah facilite. Chapter 41 was number four, it is called as nadeet, meaning admonishing instead of facilitator for even worse than before, it is called as columella, the word of Allah in Surah Tauba chapter nine, verse number six, it's also referred to as more Isaiah, that instruction

00:06:12--> 00:06:48

in Surah. Al Imran Chapter Three was 138. It's also referred to as Shiva, that is healing in Surah israa chapter number 17 was the medic and it's also called as moving meaning easily understood in service of capital was number one, these are the various names and attributes and several others, which Allah has referred to the Quran in the Quran. So halala Have you ever counted them? It seems to be another many I think, many Bulaga and I can keep on adding if you keep on thinking and wonder they refer to it often as the astonishing Quran. Allah.

00:06:50--> 00:07:03

Zack here, just to talk more specifically about this holy month of Ramadan, what's the relationship between the Koran and this month Ramadan? There is a special relationship

00:07:05--> 00:07:23

of the Quran with this motto from that, as Allah says in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was number 185. Sherry Rosanna Lizzie una de la fille Quran. The Lynas by unity Mina Rodolfo meaning Ramadan was the month in which the Quran was revealed

00:07:24--> 00:07:27

as a guidance to the whole of humankind

00:07:29--> 00:07:32

and signs for guidance and judgment.

00:07:33--> 00:07:40

The judge between right and wrong, although the witness this moon in this month, they should fast.

00:07:41--> 00:07:59

So Ramzan was the month in which this Lotus Quran was revealed as a guidance for the whole of humankind. And a beloved prophet himself himself, as mentioned Sai Bukhari, right number one, in the book of Revelation, Hadith number six, that Ark Angel Gabriel.

00:08:00--> 00:08:23

Every night in the month of Ramadan, he used to come to the prophet and recite and rehearse the Quran. So, it was a special month, with archangel gabriel every night in the month of Ramadan to come and rehearse the Quran, with the Prophet. And this was the month in which the Quran was revealed as a guide for the whole of humankind, and hamdulillah. Therefore, it's called as the month of Ramadan.

00:08:24--> 00:08:43

Furthermore, then, can you explain to the viewers what are the virtues and blessings of reciting this wonderful book, the book of criteria in between right and wrong during this month of Ramadan? There are various virtues mentioned in the Quran, not in the Hadith, about setting the Quran

00:08:44--> 00:08:50

and especially to say Buhari one number three in the book of fasting, or the number one answer to

00:08:51--> 00:09:07

the Prophet Muhammad Allah Salam was the most generous of all the people and his generosity is to reach the peak in the month of Ramadan. And archangel gabriel used to come every night and recite and rehearse with the Prophet the Quran.

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

And his generosity was much stronger than the most strongest, uncontrollable wind.

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

And

00:09:17--> 00:09:37

the first Revolution, the first way, the first verse of the Quran to be revealed to the Prophet was from Surah chapter number 96. Also Allah chapter 96 was number one receive extra attention make Ark Angel Gabriel, the first word very sight of the Quran, to the Prophet when he hasn't got a heater

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

in Dubliner,

00:09:41--> 00:09:45

the prophet when he heard the word Accra, he said, Man, arbitrary and not learned.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

Again. Angel Gabriel again repeated ekra the Prophet repeated mana Bukhari I'm not learning archangel gabriel again repeated ekra then the Prophet understood that it also means to recite

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

To read, one of the read the other, recite and rehearse the Prophet repeated ekra in that edition keep that promise mirror because the color, helical in salmonella, read, recite in the name of the Lord who created who created the human beings from something which clings a little acceptance. So reading is important, but in the name of the Lord was created, it was very important.

00:10:25--> 00:10:34

And reciting this glorious book, there are various virtues. And our beloved Prophet said, as mentioned in hadith of tirmidhi.

00:10:35--> 00:10:37

Added number to 910

00:10:40--> 00:10:41

where the Beloved Prophet said

00:10:42--> 00:11:13

that every letter you recite of the word of Allah, of the word of the Lord is Quran, you get a blessing, and each blessing is equivalent to 10 has not 10 blessings. Each letter you recite of the word of Allah you get a reward, each reward is equal 10 has not. And Alif Lam Meem is not one letter Alif is a letter, lamb is a letter meme is a letter, that means 10 1010 you get the blessings if you say Alif Lam me and upload for free said

00:11:14--> 00:11:23

as mentioned you say Buhari number 600. Number five, zero to seven, the prophet said Kira Khun mantella mo Khurana.

00:11:26--> 00:11:30

The best amongst you is the person

00:11:31--> 00:11:50

who decided to run and teaches to other learners the Quran and teach a struggle. That means is important to learn the Quran and teach it to others. And the beloved partner Phyllis from said, as mentioned, say Muslim woman number two in the Salat did number 1757. That

00:11:51--> 00:11:52

recitation

00:11:53--> 00:12:20

of the Quran will act as an intercession on the day of restriction to the reciter the Quran will intercede for you on the Day of Judgment, the resurrection. It's what the mentioned in the hadith of Muslim men are number two, added number 62 five, which says that fasting and the Quran will act as interceded on the Day of Resurrection on the Day of Judgment.

00:12:21--> 00:12:22

And

00:12:23--> 00:12:33

the fasting literally last minute Allah that the person because of me, he left his food and drink and desires. So I would intercede on his behalf.

00:12:35--> 00:12:41

And the Quran would say that the person sacrificed the sleep for me. So I will intercede for him.

00:12:43--> 00:12:48

On the day of judgment, the Quran will act as intercede on the job that

00:12:50--> 00:13:05

is mentioned in Surah Vasa. Check number 80 was number 34 and 37. It says that no person on the Day of Judgment documented every direction that applies person will not be bothered about his brother.

00:13:08--> 00:13:16

Neither will be bothered about his mother, or father, or wife and children and not be bothered about the mother, father,

00:13:18--> 00:13:33

brother, wife, children, and he'll be so much engrossed about his own concerns, that he will not be bothered by other persons concerned. On the day of judgment on the restoration, each one bothered about himself. And the Quran will act as an antecedent.

00:13:34--> 00:13:52

It's mentioned in say Bukhari one number six, added number 5011, that the Sahaba was reciting the Quran. And the horse was tied with two ropes. And he saw the cloud descent and the horse was frightened.

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

The Saba went to the Prophet The Prophet said, Do you know what happened? He said, No. The angels came down to listen to your recitation

00:14:01--> 00:14:06

and added of say Buhari on number 600 number

00:14:07--> 00:14:20

501 it it says that a Saba reciting the Quran and he saw the clouds descending down and it had something like lamps, and when he came out so that he couldn't see it.

00:14:22--> 00:14:25

And then the prophet and Professor do know what was that?

00:14:26--> 00:14:27

And the Prophet said,

00:14:28--> 00:14:39

on the cloud, the angels who had come down to listen to a recitation and if we had continued that have been there, till dawn and people would have seen it and then they have disappeared.

00:14:41--> 00:15:00

It further mentioned in say, Muslim, or number two in the book of Salah or the number 1757. That if you decide the two that sort of Baccarat and psoralen brand, they will come down as two clouds or two canopies or two flowers.

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

of birds

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

and their intercede on your behalf.

00:15:05--> 00:15:06

It's further mentioned

00:15:08--> 00:15:13

in the hadith of say Muslim, added number 6818.

00:15:14--> 00:15:19

The beloved puffiness alyssum said that anyone would recite the Quran in the house of Allah

00:15:20--> 00:15:42

in the mosque, that when people gather in the house of Allah, the mosque, and when they recite the Quran, and they learn it and teach it among themselves, on them will be tranquility. And they will become and the angels will descend, and they will send the blessings on them before dimensioned in, say Buhari

00:15:43--> 00:15:45

on number 600 number 4474.

00:15:46--> 00:16:03

Beloved partners listen to one of the Sabbath while in the mosque, that I will inform you of the greatest Quran the Quran, before I leave the mosque. And when the Prophet of the boat leaves the mosque after some time, the Sahaba reminded him that which is the greatest surah in the Quran, which you're going to

00:16:04--> 00:16:08

tell me about. The Prophet says 100 later, we talked about

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

the oft repeated seven verses.

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

It's further mentioned in say Buhari

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

word number 600. Number 5009.

00:16:20--> 00:16:25

The beloved partner Salah Salem said that anyone who recites

00:16:26--> 00:16:38

the last two verses of Surah Baqarah, at night, he will be safe. The beloved partner Salah Sorensen in say Muslim one, number two, in the book of

00:16:39--> 00:16:52

Salah Hadith number 1766. The Prophet said, anyone who memorizes the first 10 verses of surah calf, he will be saved from the job.

00:16:53--> 00:17:13

And immediately next added say Muslim, or in number two because Allah added number 1767 says that anyone who remembers the last 10 verses of surah calf, he'll be saved from the job. It further mentioned in say Muslim, one do in the book of Salah, and it number 1768

00:17:14--> 00:17:17

that the Beloved Prophet milsim said that, or

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

do you know which is the greatest

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

was of the Holy Quran? And he said that the Messenger of Allah knows the best. Again the Prophet repeated or wounded. Do you know which is the greatest verse in the Quran? recited reciting

00:17:38--> 00:17:41

ayatul kursi, Allahu Allah, Allah, you

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

know,

00:17:44--> 00:17:54

and the Prophet said, may you be pleasant with the knowledge of the Quran. The greatest source of the Quran is advocacy Surah Baqarah chapter number two Muslim 255.

00:17:56--> 00:18:00

And it's mentioned as a Muslim, or in number two, in the book of Salah,

00:18:02--> 00:18:08

added number 177 for the Prophet said that the two surahs have been revealed,

00:18:10--> 00:18:21

which no one has seen before heard before. And he spoke about sort of Fela concern as I seek refuge with the Lord of the dark clouds

00:18:23--> 00:18:33

and clouds, Gribben, NASS says seek refuge with the Lord of the dawn. So these two are the boys attain and this will protect you from evil.

00:18:34--> 00:18:51

So this was some of the virtues mentioned of reciting the Quran. And you can go on and on the various other words in the Quran and several say howdy talking about the virtues of reciting the Quran Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah a very important month indeed for all human beings, not just Muslims,

00:18:52--> 00:19:06

not zakat. Can you explain to the viewers some of the etiquettes of reading and reciting the Glorious Quran there are various etiquettes of reading and deciding the Glorious Quran.

00:19:08--> 00:19:23

The first is the very sight of the Quran, it should be for last minute Allah and to seek his blessings. Number two, it's preferable that the person is pure in third

00:19:26--> 00:19:34

and third the place where he is keeping the Quran or reciting the Quran should be clean. Number four, the time should be the best chosen time.

00:19:36--> 00:19:36

Number five.

00:19:38--> 00:19:46

It should be if you're reading the Quran, preferably the direction should be towards the Qibla preferably it's not a must.

00:19:47--> 00:19:51

Number six your intention and your concentration

00:19:52--> 00:20:00

should be on the Quran and should concentrate very in the Quran. Number seven it should be in 13 in Florida

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

MC

00:20:01--> 00:20:03

v. Number eight,

00:20:05--> 00:20:09

that we should be carrying the marriage, the pronunciation should be good.

00:20:10--> 00:20:24

Number nine, it should be with humility in your reading and reciting, it should be with humility and humbleness. Number 10. When reciting the Quran, and reading the Quran, and if there is any worse, talking about the wrath,

00:20:26--> 00:20:30

or talking about the punishment of last minute Allah, we should seek his prediction.

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

Next, if you read any verse talking

00:20:35--> 00:20:54

about the blessings and paradise, you should ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you blessings and ask for his mercy. And if you're in the Quran, and if any was known as decisions that allow it was in vain to do such that, at that time, you should stop reading and do the search as soon as possible.

00:20:55--> 00:20:56

For the moment Furthermore,

00:20:57--> 00:21:39

some verses it's preferable to repeat the verse as many times as possible. And lastly, you should try and remember to his, of as much possible of the Quran as you can. And one important thing which is rather a further all the others have preferred, is that before in the Quran, you should seek refuge from Satan, the acculist with the last minute Allah as Allah says in the Quran in surah hell, Chapter 16 verse 19, that before reading the Quran, see Al's Billahi min ash shaytaan Rahim. I seek refuge with Allah from Satan, darkest. And when you're reciting any sort of from the beginning, you should recite.

00:21:40--> 00:21:55

The first was the beginning of it. That is Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful, because every surah of the Quran, begin with the formula Miss Miller of Mandarin, In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful, except for Sorrento by chapter nine.

00:21:57--> 00:22:04

It's a fact today that the glorious God is the most widely read book in the world today.

00:22:07--> 00:22:17

It's obviously recited by all of these people, most of these people in Arabic, and unfortunately, it isn't the language that they understand

00:22:18--> 00:22:27

necessarily. So, because M is recited without understanding, in many, many cases.

00:22:28--> 00:22:49

What would you say? Or how could we encourage brothers and sisters to read the code and with meaning, and therefore, being able to derive more benefit from recitation of it rightly said that the Quran has various benefits you can keep on listing them. There are umpteen number of benefits hundreds of them.

00:22:50--> 00:23:15

The Quran, is the most positive book in the world. It is a proclamation to humanity. It is a fountain of mercy and wisdom. It is a warning to the heedless, a guide to the airing and assurance to those in doubt. It is a source to the suffering and a hope to those in despair. How is it possible

00:23:16--> 00:23:31

to derive all these benefits if a person does not read the Quran, if he does not understand it, if he does not ponder over the verses, if he does not implement the Quran, and does not put in practice.

00:23:33--> 00:23:44

as you rightly said, the Quran is the most widely read book in the world. But unfortunately, it is also the book which is maximum read without understanding.

00:23:46--> 00:23:57

It will be a tragic misfortune. If someone comes to the Quran, and goes away empty handed, soul untouched, heart unmoved, life unchanged.

00:24:00--> 00:24:05

To get the right benefit, besides reading the Quran, is compulsory that you should understand it.

00:24:07--> 00:24:15

You should ponder over the meaning of the Quran. you implement the guidance which Allah has given to the humankind and put it in practice.

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

We have

00:24:19--> 00:24:20

two types of people

00:24:21--> 00:24:27

amongst them. Some people who think that only thing the Quran is sufficient and others will think that reciting

00:24:29--> 00:24:39

is not required only the meaning is important unless there's no Quran in surah chapter number four was 171. Latin to feed the newcomer not commit exists in a religion

00:24:42--> 00:24:53

that has benefit also by reciting. But with understanding you get multiple times to benefit lessons in the Quran. In surah uncovered chapter number 29 was number 45 blesses

00:24:55--> 00:24:58

the sight of what we have revealed by inspiration

00:25:01--> 00:25:03

May 5 recite the Quran

00:25:04--> 00:25:10

with Lu ma de la Camila kitabi recite of what we have revealed by inspiration

00:25:12--> 00:25:16

for this mentioned in Surah Baqarah, chapter number two was number 242

00:25:17--> 00:25:20

several times that comes in to foreign lands at noon,

00:25:22--> 00:25:26

do they not understand that means it is a book to be understood.

00:25:28--> 00:25:37

And it is important that we have to understand the book while reading besides reading, you should understand it.

00:25:38--> 00:25:44

So, reciting the Quran will get you many benefits. As I mentioned earlier, our beloved Prophet said, say howdy in

00:25:45--> 00:26:26

me the Hadith number 2910. That every letter in the sight of the word of Allah subhanaw taala of the Quran, you get an award, each reward will get 10 blessings, and Alif laam Meem is not a letter Alif is a letter, lamb is a letter, maybe the letter so if Alif laam Meem get 1010 1037. So there is sabab in reciting, there is blessing in deciding the Quran. But as I mentioned earlier, it's not sufficient, only their foresight. So we've realized that both are important. But understanding and implementing is more important. Let me give an example. Suppose you go to France for a graduation.

00:26:28--> 00:26:32

And you don't understand French. But since you know English, you know the script.

00:26:35--> 00:26:36

When you attend the college,

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

every day, your must be

00:26:41--> 00:26:42

that is present.

00:26:43--> 00:26:58

When you sit for the examination, and you understand a word, what the teacher is saying, When instead of the examination, you get the question paper, since the script is the same, maybe you can try and read by concentration, we don't understand a word.

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

They're also in the examination get a P, P is not for pass, it's a presence.

00:27:06--> 00:27:28

It's only indicating that you are present for the examination, but that will not pass you. So therefore if you are to go to Jenna, besides reciting the Quran, it's important that we even understand what Allah is telling us. Because Quran is a guidance for the whole of humanity, you understand it and implement on it. And I'll give you one more example. Suppose there's a friend of yours.

00:27:30--> 00:27:36

Since living in UK, a friend of yours come from Germany is a close friend of yours, he can speak some broken English.

00:27:38--> 00:27:42

When he goes back, he writes to you a letter in German, which you don't understand.

00:27:44--> 00:28:21

So when a close friend of yours, writes a letter to you, in German, and if you can't really do, but natural, you will go to a person who knows German and have it translated. Because you want to know, what did your friend mentioned in the letter? Isn't it important that we should know whatever creator Allah subhana wa Taala has mentioned in his last and final guidance that includes Quran, we don't have to go and translate the Quran, the translation is already available. So it's important that besides reading, if you can't see in Arabic, we should read the translation, so that we are able to understand the muscle of Allah subhanaw taala and implement on it

00:28:22--> 00:28:26

makes sense? It certainly does make sense Okazaki

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

since there are

00:28:30--> 00:28:57

so much more reward for reading the Koran with the understanding, why is it or what are the excuses given by Muslims multitudes of Muslims for not taking your advice and reading it with understanding the many excuses given by the common Muslim, for not reading the Quran and understanding. And the most common is that we don't understand Arabic as a language.

00:28:58--> 00:29:30

As you may be aware, that more than one fifth of the world population, more than 20% of world population, about 1.5 billion out of the 6.3 billion people in the world, they are Muslims. But more than 80% don't understand Arabic language 15% of the Muslim population approximately the Arabs and a few non Arabs know Arabic half language. So more than 80% of the Muslims. They don't understand Arabic as a language. So the most common excuses, we don't know Arabic as language.

00:29:31--> 00:29:41

Now, every human being knows at least two or three languages, some new for some new five some a linguist or when a child is born.

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

He does not know any language, but he learns the mother tongue to converse with family members. He learns the language of the locality, so that he can converse with the friends. He learns the language in which is educated. Every human being knows at least two or three languages.

00:30:01--> 00:30:11

Isn't it important that we should know the language in which the last and final guidance, revelation was given by our Creator Allah subhanaw taala.

00:30:12--> 00:30:13

Many people say that

00:30:14--> 00:30:16

it's difficult to learn a language

00:30:17--> 00:30:37

when we are old. But age is never a barrier for any good work. And that reminds me of the example of Dr. Morris book. He wrote his book when he was a French. And he was given the French Academy Award in the field of medicine. And he was selected for studying the mummy of naptha.

00:30:38--> 00:31:03

That was born in the valley of kings. And when he went to Egypt, while doing your research, one of the Muslims said it's nothing greater than he found the body. It's already mentioned in the Quran in surah Yunus chapter number 10, was similar to that Almighty God will save the body of the pharaoh as a sign for posterity. So, he was shocked that How could this book which is so old, mentioned about

00:31:05--> 00:31:12

things which have come recently, that the body of the pharaoh will be saved? So that made him read the translation of the Quran.

00:31:13--> 00:31:28

After you the task is the cron used to impress in the Quran, he wanted to understand Quran directly in Arabic. So he learned Arabic as a language at the age of 50. Imagine being a non Muslim, learning Arabic as a language to understand the Quran better. And then he writes the book,

00:31:29--> 00:31:33

Bible, the Quran, and science is a very famous book.

00:31:35--> 00:31:43

So age is never a barrier for a person to learn a new language, but it's not possible that all of us will be adding to the Aztec adopter model okay.

00:31:46--> 00:31:46

According to

00:31:48--> 00:31:59

abdulmajeed area buddy, he says, The Quran is the most untranslatable book in the world. It is the most difficult book to translate. Because language of the Quran is so pure.

00:32:01--> 00:32:04

It is unsurpassable it's intangible,

00:32:05--> 00:32:08

it is supreme, it is noble, it is divine.

00:32:09--> 00:32:15

And many times one Arabic word has got several meanings.

00:32:17--> 00:32:18

one verse of the Quran,

00:32:19--> 00:32:29

it can be understood in various different ways. It will have a different angle for a layman reads it for a scientific level, different angle. So that is the reason that's the beauty of the Quran.

00:32:31--> 00:33:01

So to read it in Arabic is the best. But for those people don't Arabic Alhamdulillah there are many sheiks, many Alma, many scholars, who have transmitted Koran into major different languages of the world, most of the major language of the world, the Quran has been translated by different scholars. So if you don't understand Arabic language, at least read the Quran. In the language you understand the best if you know English, written in English,

00:33:02--> 00:33:25

if you know French, reason French, if you know German, reading German, if you know to read it, or do read it in the language you understand the best. But it's a requirement that we should read the Quran, the language you understand, so there's no excuse they don't know Arabic that read the language you understand, and hamdulillah in most of the major language of the world, you have the Quran today that it hasn't translated.

00:33:26--> 00:33:30

We have the translation of the Quran, in most of the major language of the world.

00:33:32--> 00:33:38

There are various excuses given by Muslims that they are busy in the business in the work

00:33:39--> 00:33:42

and studies that there is in the country, the translation of

00:33:43--> 00:33:48

many of us, we go to schools, we go to universities to colleges,

00:33:49--> 00:33:59

and we spent decades in schools, universities, colleges, and we read and memorize volumes and volumes of books. But we don't have the time to read the Quran.

00:34:02--> 00:34:10

How much time does it take to read the Quran, it reads a translation to Quran. And if your reading is fast, it will take few days for you to read the Quran.

00:34:12--> 00:34:19

If you read one, just one pot every day, it will take you one month. But unfortunately we give excuses they don't have the time.

00:34:21--> 00:34:27

Whatever degree you acquire, in the school in the college, it may or may not help you in this world.

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

Many of the people the graduates but the jobless

00:34:32--> 00:34:57

and in the hereafter unless this education does not get you closer to Allah subhanaw taala. This knowledge is useless for the Ashura. The Quran says in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was the one and two if now me. The article katapola II Buffy that Alif laam Meem This is a book. Without doubt, it is a guidance. For those who have faith.

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

It is surely giving a promise

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

There is a guidance for you, it will help you in this world as well as the hereafter.

00:35:06--> 00:35:07

So it's a requirement

00:35:08--> 00:35:16

that the Muslims should read the Quran with understanding if they're not a big reader the language understand the best. Okay? Well, there's no excuses now.

00:35:18--> 00:35:37

Many Muslims consider that it's only an alum or a scholar who can interpret the Quran and recite the Quran to them. Is this a correct understanding? I love isn't the Quran you select from a chap number 54

00:35:38--> 00:36:10

no less than four times it says in the same Surah Surah combat chapter 54 was number 17 verse number 22 was number 32 as well as number 41 lacquered the yes or no Quran and Zachary farming boedeker. We have made the Quran easy for you to remember and understand in which of you shall not receive admonishing see or the Quran says that it is easy for you to understand. And some people say it's only meant for the scholars so there is a contradiction. Will you believe in them? Or will you believe in Allah subhanaw taala

00:36:11--> 00:36:18

and Allah says in the Quran, in Surah hedger chapter number 15 was number one Alif Lam.

00:36:19--> 00:37:03

These are the iots of the revelation, which make things clear. That means it makes things clear, it's easy for a person to understand. But at the same time, a lot also says in the Quran in surah, chapter number 16 was 243 as well as sorry ambia chapter number 21 was number seven. First Alou holistically in controllato Allah, if you don't know, as the person who possesses the message, as the person who's knowledgeable as an alum, is reading the Quran. And while reading the Quran, if you find something difficult to understand, and ask a person who's a scholar, ask an alum. If the Quran speaks about science,

00:37:05--> 00:37:36

and we find it difficult understanding, who will you go to, will go to a cobbler. You go to Baba, you go to a scientist, the Quran speaks about medicine, will go to a doctor to try and understand what does the Quran say. Similarly, if you want to know about Newsela, Quran, a meaning of certain words of the Quran, then you go to an alum who has gone to that role maybe for seven years or 14 years. He is an expert in that field. The Quran says if you don't know, if you are in doubt, as the person who possessed the message. So

00:37:37--> 00:37:39

it is meant for the whole of humanity

00:37:40--> 00:38:25

for the common man, as well as for the scholars. But while reading, if you find any difficulty, you can ask the person who's knowledgeable. And that reminds me of an example, that a few decades earlier in the late 70s and early 80s. There were a group of atoms who followed on the guidance of the verse of the Quran, they've done possess the message as the person who has knowledge and they collected all the material in the Quran. And they say Hadith dealing with the subject of embryology. And they presented it to prosecute more at that time. In the late 70s and early 80s. Professor Keith Moore was one of the highest authorities in the field of embryology in the world. He was the head of

00:38:25--> 00:38:39

the department of anatomy in the district of Toronto in Canada. And when he was shown the voice of the Quran, along with English translation, and he was asked that what are his comments? So he said

00:38:40--> 00:39:00

that most of the things that Quran speaks about embryology 100% in conformity with what we have come to know recently in modern biology, but there are a few verses, which I cannot say that they are right. Neither can I say that they are wrong, because I myself do not know them.

00:39:02--> 00:39:47

And two such verses are the first verse of the Quran to be revealed. So to Accra, also to Allah, chapter six, verse one and two we save a crop Bismillah baccala color, colorful inside, I mean Allah read, recite and proclaim in the name of the Lord who created who created the human beings from something which clings a little acceptance. The word alaka means something which clings it also means additional acceptance. So prophecy, Keith Moore said, I do not know whether the early stages of an embryo embryo means the early stage of the human being that is there in the womb of the mother. embryology is the study of the human development. He said he doesn't know the early stages

00:39:47--> 00:40:00

of an embryo look like a leech or not. So you went in his laboratory, and under a very powerful microscope, you observed the shape of an embryo and compared it with a photograph of a leech and he was astonished

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

The striking resemblance.

00:40:03--> 00:40:18

And later on after reading the various forces, the Quran and the Hadith, he said, After about 50, more than 50 questions asked him more than 80 questions asked him. And he said that if these questions were asked to me 30 years ago, he said that in early 80s,

00:40:20--> 00:40:28

I would not be able to answer more than 50% of them. Because embryology is a branch of medicine, which has advanced recently.

00:40:29--> 00:40:30

And he said,

00:40:31--> 00:41:04

that he has no objection in agreeing that this book is the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the word of Almighty God and Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is the messenger of this Almighty God. And this book, then later on whatever additional information he got, he wrote a new book that there have been human, which even I had to refer when I was in the medical college. In the first year, the subject anatomy, you know, the third edition, for which you got an award for the best medical book written by a single author in that year.

00:41:06--> 00:41:15

And I want to give you one more example, that any machine that you buy, along with it comes the instruction manual,

00:41:16--> 00:41:21

more complicated the machine more is the requirement of an instruction manual. If you buy

00:41:22--> 00:41:49

machinery is more complicated like a computer, the more difficult it is to understand the more requirement of instruction manual. If you allow me to call the human beings a machine, you'd have to agree it is the most complicated machine in the whole world. Don't you think? This machine requires the instruction manual supplied to me, the goddess Quran is the last and final instruction manual for human beings, the do's and don'ts for the human being excellent in the glorious corner.

00:41:51--> 00:41:53

And that reminds me

00:41:54--> 00:42:03

Once there was a knob of Hyderabad, Nawab the person was like a landlord a very rich person.

00:42:05--> 00:42:20

And when first time automobile was introduced in India, people did not know drive the car. So along with the car, the company even provided the driver. So this rich landlord, Nawab of Hyderabad,

00:42:21--> 00:42:25

he buys a new car. So the company along with the car, provided him with a driver.

00:42:26--> 00:42:33

So one day in the morning, he does a demo that I want to take my wife, Begum cyber for shopping,

00:42:34--> 00:42:34

please

00:42:36--> 00:42:48

get the car ready. There is no upside. The car is not in working condition. The Nawab gets angry and he says, I want the car immediately in working condition because I want to take my wife

00:42:50--> 00:42:55

for shopping. So David says to put the kind of working condition I require

00:42:57--> 00:43:00

10 kgs of honey 20 litres of milk

00:43:01--> 00:43:34

30 kgs of pure ghee and 50 kgs of rice that also basmati rice. So the no upside gives them 10 kg of honey 20 litres of milk at the ages of Yogi and 50 kg the vast materials, the diver takes it and gives it to life. And within a few minutes the chi is in working condition. My question is that today, suppose the diver says hey request and give you the funny 20 litres of milk 30 kgs of pod 50 kgs of basmati rice,

00:43:35--> 00:44:03

what will you do? If he says he requires these things to put the kind of working condition not only do we kick you out of the job, because today, even though we may not not repair the car, we know that the car doesn't work on honey, milk, rice or ghee, it works on gas, it works on petrol. So therefore, though we may not know how to repair the car, we know the basic mechanism of the car. So everyone knows the basic meaning of the Quran that no one will take you for a ride.

00:44:04--> 00:44:20

So we should know the basic meaning of the Quran. And if the car gets boiled once in a year or once in six months, then you can go to a mechanic. So why don't you look around if you find something difficult to understand, at that time, surely, you can go to a person knowledgeable and he will explain to you what is there in the Koran.

00:44:22--> 00:44:35

And just last example, how people they say that why is it in the Quran it's not required and should be done only by the limb that not ballet man. They give an argument that

00:44:37--> 00:44:59

if you have a learner's driving license, called a stretcher license or a learner's license, and if you bang up the car, if you have an accident, the police will give you a less fine but if you have permanent license, a complete license, and then if you do an accident, then the police will find you double therefore expect

00:45:00--> 00:45:11

Not to know the foreign not to understand the Quran. And if you do since then God will punish you less. If you know the Quran, and if you understand the Quran, and then if you do a sin, then Allah will punish you double.

00:45:13--> 00:45:28

I said, I agree with you for the sake of argument, that if a person has a temporary license, a learner's license, if you are the catcher license, and if he does an accident, he will get half the punishment. Maybe he'll be fined $1,000.

00:45:29--> 00:45:31

But a person has a permanent license,

00:45:33--> 00:45:38

a complete license, and if he does an accident, he will be fined double maybe $2,000.

00:45:40--> 00:45:52

But the point to be noted is that if a person who has a learner's license and has not learned driving correctly, the chances that in one year, he'd have an accident would be maybe 50 times.

00:45:53--> 00:46:20

But a person who learns how to drive and as a permanent license, chances that you'll have an accident the fuller maybe once so who person who has a proper license and learns diving, you may end up paying a fine of $2,000 but the other person who has a learner's license, who bangs up the car 50 times ends up paying $50,000 at the end of the year. So yet it's preferable that you should have a permanent license. Similarly, read the front of the understanding

00:46:21--> 00:47:09

and implement other methods of Allah subhanaw taala and the chances that you will commit sins and mistakes would be less if you're the understanding, rather than saying that it's only meant for the alums. It's preferable that all the human beings there is different and understanding and implement on the message of Allah subhanaw taala last and final revelation, which was revealed last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon brothers and sisters. I've been enthralled and very happy to hear all the information from Dr. Zakir regarding Ramadan, the month of the Quran. I hope you have been as excited as I have today to hear all of the arguments for us to understand, read, recite

00:47:09--> 00:47:23

and love the Quran. For what it's worth. Join us tomorrow, part two of Ramadan, the month of the Quran assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
