but especially elders, and my dear brother and sisters, I welcome all of you with the Islamic greetings As salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

00:00:34--> 00:00:40

Peace, mercy and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala of Almighty God beyond all of you.

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

The topic of this evening's talk is Al Quran. Should it be read with understanding the Glorious Quran is the last and final revelation

00:00:56--> 00:01:03

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

00:01:04--> 00:01:20

The Glorious 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 guide to daring it is a warning to the heatless

00:01:21--> 00:01:28

and assurance to those in doubt. It's a solace to the suffering and it is a hope to those in despair.

00:01:29--> 00:01:46

How is it possible to derive all these benefits of the Quran without reading the Quran? Without understanding the Quran without pondering over the meaning of the Quran, and without implementing the Quran in your life.

00:01:48--> 00:01:55

Alhamdulillah the Glorious Quran is the most widely read book in the world.

00:01:57--> 00:02:00

But unfortunately, it is also the book

00:02:01--> 00:02:04

which is most widely read without understanding

00:02:07--> 00:02:14

because the majority of the Muslims read the Quran without understanding that there isn't the contact

00:02:16--> 00:02:24

the benefit that the Muslims derive from the Quran, it has decreased the touch of the Muslims with the Quran has declined.

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

Imagine if a person comes to the Quran

00:02:31--> 00:02:32

and he goes away empty handed

00:02:34--> 00:02:37

Hearts untouched, sold and moved

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

and the life unchanged.

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

What a tragic, me Fortunatus

00:02:45--> 00:02:57

Allah says in the Quran in surah Al Quran Chapter number three was them 110 Kuntum Cara mattina credit Lynas only Muslims II are the best of people the world for mankind.

00:02:58--> 00:03:07

That Morona Bill Maher of EVA Nona animal care without me know Nabila because we enjoy what is good. And we forbid what is wrong. And we believe in Allah.

00:03:08--> 00:03:22

Allah is calling us the Muslims, the Kira Amma, the best of people evolved for humankind. And the reason is giving us is because we enjoy what is good and we forbid what is wrong and we believe in Allah.

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

If the Muslims

00:03:27--> 00:03:41

read the Quran without understanding, how can we enjoy and what is good and forbid what is wrong, and if we do not enjoy what is good, and if you do not forget what is wrong, we are unfit to be called as Muslims we are unfit to be called as head Amma.

00:03:42--> 00:03:52

So if we want to be called as Hara OMA, if you want to be Muslims, we have read the Quran with understanding so that we can enjoy what is good and forbid what is wrong.

00:03:55--> 00:03:56

That'd be called Quran

00:03:58--> 00:04:06

is derived from the Arabic word Cara, which means book. It's also derived from the Arabic word ekra, which means to read, which means to recite,

00:04:08--> 00:04:09

which means to proclaim,

00:04:10--> 00:04:15

how can we proclaim the message of Allah subhanaw taala without understanding the message.

00:04:16--> 00:04:26

And another title given to Quran is Farrakhan that is the criteria to judge right from wrong. We can only judge

00:04:27--> 00:04:31

between right and wrong if we understand the message of the Quran.

00:04:33--> 00:04:41

Without understanding the mystery of the Quran, it's not possible that we can use the Quran as the Quran as the criteria to judge between right and wrong.
