Do Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us the first guidance in the Glorious Quran that we should read. But unfortunately,

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

we realize

00:00:13--> 00:00:17

that the Muslims in the Muslim community, everyone

00:00:18--> 00:00:47

does not read. And those Muslims who are involved in aquatic knowledge in reading, they don't read as per the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala. Allah does not say only read, Allah says ekra Bismillah because he cannot read in the name of the Lord. So when we read, when we acquire knowledge, we should acquire knowledge in such a way that we come closer to our Creator Allah subhana wa Taala. If the knowledge

00:00:49--> 00:00:56

does not bring you closer towards your Creator towards your rub, then that knowledge is not useful for the IRA.

starts at home.

00:01:54--> 00:01:57
