00:00:05,200 --> 00:00:07,800
'In a journey to everywhere'

2
00:00:07,800 --> 00:00:11,300
'Between cities and nations'

3
00:00:11,300 --> 00:00:14,200
'In the presence of the Wise Remembrance'

4
00:00:14,200 --> 00:00:20,900
'The Lord of all hearts Has unified us... Has unified us all.'

5
00:00:35,400 --> 00:00:38,700
'And for the sake of memorizing the book'

6
00:00:38,700 --> 00:00:41,800
'We have knocked every door'

7
00:00:41,800 --> 00:00:51,400
'We shall continue this right path, before things come to an end'

00:00:56,200 --> 00:01:00,300


So many of you like to read the Whole Qur'an more than once

9
00:01:00,300 --> 00:01:05,800
especially in Ramadan, people race to finish it once, twice

10
00:01:05,800 --> 00:01:09,000
and three times, throughout Ramadan, which is great.

11
00:01:09,000 --> 00:01:16,300
However, when we read the Qur'an, we must stop every now and then to

12
00:01:16,800 --> 00:01:18,000
reflect upon the beautiful meanings we pass by

13
00:01:18,000 --> 00:01:19,900
Useful messages

14
00:01:19,900 --> 00:01:24,200
We shouldnt focus on when we are through with the hizb or juzz of the day

15
00:01:24,300 --> 00:01:26,600
Let's care more to finish where the message is complete

16
00:01:26,600 --> 00:01:30,800
So that when starting again next day or after an Hour,

17
00:01:30,800 --> 00:01:32,100
we are starting a new idea from the Qur'an

18
00:01:32,100 --> 00:01:33,400
Let me give you an example,

19
00:01:33,400 --> 00:01:35,000
In surat Ali'Imran

20
00:01:35,000 --> 00:01:39,400
" Our Lord, indeed whoever You admit to the Fire - "

21
00:01:39,400 --> 00:01:41,700
" You have disgraced him, and for the wrongdoers there are no helpers."

22
00:01:41,700 --> 00:01:44,000
" Our Lord, indeed we have heard a caller calling to faith,"

23

00:01:44,000 --> 00:01:46,300


The believers are calling and praying to Allah SWT

24
00:01:46,300 --> 00:01:48,100
And they ask him, SWT

25
00:01:48,100 --> 00:01:49,600
And finally they say;

26
00:01:49,600 --> 00:01:51,900
" Our Lord, and grant us what You promised us through Your messengers"

27
00:01:51,900 --> 00:01:53,000
" and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection."

28
00:01:53,000 --> 00:01:54,100
" Indeed, You do not fail in [Your] promise.""

29
00:01:54,100 --> 00:01:55,100
Suppose you closed the Mushaf at this verse

30
00:01:55,100 --> 00:01:57,500
And next day you continued;" And their Lord responded to them,"

31
00:01:57,500 --> 00:01:58,600
But as you see the sequence was interrupted

32
00:01:58,600 --> 00:02:02,000
They prayed and they are waiting for Allah to accept their prayers.

33
00:02:02,000 --> 00:02:05,500
When you read, finish at the end of the message

34
00:02:05,500 --> 00:02:10,200
This, my beloved, would support your contemplation

35
00:02:10,200 --> 00:02:15,100
Get this advice from me and you will realize how great contemplation is

36
00:02:15,100 --> 00:02:17,200
Another thing I noticed

37
00:02:17,200 --> 00:02:21,000
Some people read fast, and stop anywhere in the middle of the verse

38

00:02:21,000 --> 00:02:26,000


They don't realize that the meaning of the verse changes a lot

39
00:02:26,000 --> 00:02:29,800
These improper stops are called by scholars "Ugly stops"

40
00:02:29,800 --> 00:02:32,300
How bad the description, Ugly, is!

41
00:02:32,300 --> 00:02:34,900
Because the meaning of the verse might change completely

42
00:02:34,900 --> 00:02:37,100
And might lead to dangerous expressions of Shirk (association with Allah),

43
00:02:37,100 --> 00:02:40,300
Or distort a beautiful meaning unknowingly

44
00:02:40,300 --> 00:02:46,800
For example, in Surat Al-Ma'un, Allah SWT said:

45
00:02:46,800 --> 00:02:48,200
" So woe to those who pray"

46
00:02:48,200 --> 00:02:53,100
Imagine stopping here! How comes those who pray?!!

47
00:02:53,100 --> 00:02:56,300
Those are much rewarded for their prayer!

48
00:02:56,300 --> 00:02:58,500
Then, how come He says: "woe to those who pray"?

49
00:02:58,500 --> 00:03:02,000
If you want to understand the meaning properly, you must stop properly! Read:

50
00:03:02,000 --> 00:03:04,700
" So woe to those who pray [But] who are heedless of their prayer -"

51
00:03:04,700 --> 00:03:07,600
Those who heedless of their prayer and without concentration

52
00:03:07,600 --> 00:03:10,000
Another example from surat Ibrahim

53

00:03:10,000 --> 00:03:12,000


" And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, 'If you are grateful,"

54
00:03:12,000 --> 00:03:13,000
" I will surely increase you [in favor];"

55
00:03:13,000 --> 00:03:14,900
" but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.' "

56
00:03:14,900 --> 00:03:16,000
Someone might read:

57
00:03:16,000 --> 00:03:19,300
"If you are grateful, I will surely increase you and [even] if you deny,"

58
00:03:19,300 --> 00:03:20,600
and he stops, the meaning now changed!

59
00:03:20,600 --> 00:03:22,400
It means that Allah will increase both

60
00:03:22,400 --> 00:03:25,300
the believer and the disbeliever!

61
00:03:25,300 --> 00:03:28,000
This kind of stop is called the ugly stop; Waqf Qabeh

62
00:03:28,000 --> 00:03:30,400
But the proper stop helps proper understanding

63
00:03:30,400 --> 00:03:34,000
and reflection upon the meanings

64
00:03:34,000 --> 00:03:39,000
For example, Allah SWT says;

65
00:03:39,000 --> 00:03:46,300
" Be not deceived by the [uninhibited] movement of the disbelievers throughout the
land."

66
00:03:46,300 --> 00:03:53,100
" The movement of the disbelievers throughout the land [is] a small enjoyment; "

67
00:03:53,100 --> 00:03:55,700
Noticed how combining the verses enriched the meaning?

68
00:03:55,700 --> 00:03:56,900
and potentiated the message

69
00:03:56,900 --> 00:04:00,100
And any one praying behind you will be amazed on the new understanding

70
00:04:00,100 --> 00:04:02,000
Believe me and I am honest with you,

71
00:04:02,000 --> 00:04:04,600
This is very helpful in reflection

72
00:04:04,600 --> 00:04:09,500
upon the speech of Allah SWT

73
00:04:09,500 --> 00:04:16,400
We will continue in the future to mention other helping points

74
00:04:16,400 --> 00:04:20,200
'In a journey to everywhere'

75
00:04:20,200 --> 00:04:24,100

'Between cities and nations'

76
00:04:24,100 --> 00:04:28,000
'In the presence of the Wise Remembrance'

77
00:04:28,000 --> 00:04:35,600
'The Lord of all hearts Has unified us... Has unified us all.'

78
00:04:35,600 --> 00:04:39,600
'And for the sake of memorizing the book'

79
00:04:39,600 --> 00:04:43,400
'We have knocked every door'

80
00:04:43,400 --> 00:04:49,100
'We shall continue this right path,'

81
00:04:49,100 --> 00:04:52,000
'before things come to an end'

82
00:04:56,400 --> 00:04:59,400
I have reached the city of Tang Rang, Indonesia

83
00:04:59,400 --> 00:05:02,000
Our plan was to visit a Qur'anic Centre or an Institute

84
00:05:02,000 --> 00:05:08,900
To our surprise, it was not as we expected

85
00:05:08,900 --> 00:05:12,500
It was a very beautiful resort!

86
00:05:12,500 --> 00:05:13,900
which is very exceptional

87
00:05:13,900 --> 00:05:15,400
What amazed me more is that,

88
00:05:15,400 --> 00:05:18,100
the owner of this Qur'anic resort was

89
00:05:18,100 --> 00:05:22,100
a lovable personality, well-mannered, and humble.

90
00:05:22,100 --> 00:05:25,700

You would never feel bored talking to him

91
00:05:46,300 --> 00:05:48,700
- My dear Sheikh Yusuf Mansur

92
00:05:48,700 --> 00:05:50,600
- First I would like to thank you,

93
00:05:50,600 --> 00:05:52,800
- I know you are very busy person and

94
00:05:52,800 --> 00:05:56,900
- Your schedule is tight with all the Qur'anic activities you do

95
00:05:56,900 --> 00:05:58,300
- and serving the Book of Allah Swt

96
00:05:58,300 --> 00:05:59,800
- I ask Allah SWT to preserve you

97
00:05:59,800 --> 00:06:04,400
- I am very happy to be here
- Glory to Allah

98
00:06:04,400 --> 00:06:06,500
- This Institute is a blessing from Allah

99
00:06:06,500 --> 00:06:08,100
- May Allah bless you sheikh

100
00:06:08,100 --> 00:06:10,400
- How everything here?
- Praise to Allah, everything is good

101
00:06:10,400 --> 00:06:14,500
- Sheikh Yusuf, I was told so much about you

102
00:06:14,500 --> 00:06:19,000
- But I want to hear it from you

103
00:06:19,000 --> 00:06:23,000
- How was the beginning with the Book of Allah SWT?

104
00:06:23,000 --> 00:06:26,800
- From the start!

105
00:06:26,800 --> 00:06:31,000
- I started memorization of the Qur'an at the prison

106
00:06:31,000 --> 00:06:34,000
- You were in jail!
- Yes

107
00:06:34,000 --> 00:06:40,000
- At 1999 to be exact 1998

108
00:06:40,000 --> 00:06:45,800
- I spent there 4 months

109
00:06:47,000 --> 00:06:49,200
- Praise to Allah, I memorized 4 juzzs there

110
00:06:49,200 --> 00:06:53,100
- Every month one juzz!

111
00:06:53,100 --> 00:06:57,400
- After I was released,

112

00:06:57,400 --> 00:07:03,700


- I told my father that I memorized 4 juzzs

113
00:07:03,700 --> 00:07:06,900
- He said, " Very good, take him back to jail!"

114
00:07:06,900 --> 00:07:12,000
- Back in jail to complete your memorization!
- Yes, it turned out good!

115
00:07:12,100 --> 00:07:15,800
- How did you start serving the Qur'an as we see?

116
00:07:15,800 --> 00:07:18,500
- How did you devote yourself to serving the Qur'an?

117
00:07:18,500 --> 00:07:22,600
- My only explanation to what happened is that, it is a miracle.

118
00:07:22,600 --> 00:07:25,700
- This is what happened here!

119
00:07:25,700 --> 00:07:29,100

- When I started with the Qur'an,

120
00:07:29,100 --> 00:07:33,000
- Allah SWT, made everything easy!

121
00:07:33,000 --> 00:07:38,900
- Our teacher, Yusuf Mansur always encourages students and teachers

122
00:07:38,900 --> 00:07:40,100
- He motivates them by

123
00:07:40,100 --> 00:07:42,900
- strengthening their believe and confidence with Allah SWT

124
00:07:42,900 --> 00:07:46,100
- And that the Qur'an is the way for our happiness,

125
00:07:46,100 --> 00:07:48,500
- honor and success in dunya and thereafter

126
00:07:48,500 --> 00:07:52,800
- The tighter your bond with the Qur'an, the greater the rewards

127
00:07:52,800 --> 00:07:55,100
- This was his personal experience in the first place

128
00:07:55,100 --> 00:07:58,200
- He wasn't a professional teacher or an instructor

129
00:07:58,200 --> 00:08:02,300
- He used to go to the nearby institutes

130
00:08:02,300 --> 00:08:06,300
- and asks the teachers there to give him a chance to teach

131
00:08:06,300 --> 00:08:08,300
- to substitute them even for one day in the class

132
00:08:08,300 --> 00:08:11,100
- Sometimes he offered them money to accept

133
00:08:11,100 --> 00:08:12,700
- Instead of taking money from them

134
00:08:12,700 --> 00:08:16,200

- He offered money to the teachers for even one hour in their classes

135
00:08:16,200 --> 00:08:18,600
- To teach the Book of Allah SWT

136
00:08:18,600 --> 00:08:20,900
- He enjoys teaching the Book of Allah SWT

137
00:08:20,900 --> 00:08:25,000
- The prophet SAW said, "The best of you who learn the Qur'an.."

138
00:08:25,000 --> 00:08:26,000
- "..and teaches it."

139
00:08:26,000 --> 00:08:28,200
- So he always motivate to love learning the Qur'an

140
00:08:28,400 --> 00:08:32,600
- From the scene around us, viewers might think that we are in

141
00:08:32,600 --> 00:08:35,000
- a tourists' resort, in Indonesia

142
00:08:35,000 --> 00:08:38,800
- Or a national park

143
00:08:38,800 --> 00:08:43,200
- This place is actually a Qur'anic institute

144
00:08:43,200 --> 00:08:45,100
- And a real Qur'anic resort

145
00:08:45,100 --> 00:08:49,000
- Mr. Yusuf and his colleagues established this institute

146
00:08:49,000 --> 00:08:52,200
- Called Dar Al-Qur'an for memorization of the Noble Qur'an

147
00:08:52,200 --> 00:08:56,200
- At first, they had 8 orphans

148
00:08:56,200 --> 00:08:58,100
- who were locals

149
00:08:58,100 --> 00:09:04,600

- It is a full boarding school, students study and live here

150
00:09:06,800 --> 00:09:10,500
He started teaching the Qur'an to 8 persons

151
00:09:11,000 --> 00:09:16,700
And gradually increased the number up to three thousand hafidh

152
00:09:16,700 --> 00:09:18,000
Blessings from the Merciful

153
00:09:18,000 --> 00:09:21,000
This is the real blessing of the Qur'an

154
00:09:23,300 --> 00:09:26,500
- How could you establish this place in such a short period?

155
00:09:26,500 --> 00:09:29,800
- In 5 years!

156
00:09:29,800 --> 00:09:33,100
- This is the blessing of the Qur'an

157
00:09:33,100 --> 00:09:35,100
- How ?

158
00:09:35,100 --> 00:09:38,700
- The institute is mind blowing!

159
00:09:38,700 --> 00:09:40,800
- Extraordinary beautiful, ma'sha'Allah.

160
00:09:40,800 --> 00:09:43,900
- Praise to Allah,

161
00:09:43,900 --> 00:09:48,100
- I know some of the privileges of sending blessings to our prophet

162
00:09:48,100 --> 00:09:50,800
- Of saying, peace and blessings upon our prophet
- Peace and blessings upon him

163
00:09:50,800 --> 00:09:57,300
- My mother, father, and all elders in my family

164

00:09:58,300 --> 00:10:03,500


- They advised me; if you wish anything, start by blessing our prophet SAW

165
00:10:03,500 --> 00:10:06,900
- Then, by the will of Allah, your wish is going to be fulfilled

166
00:10:07,800 --> 00:10:09,300
- This institute is private

167
00:10:09,300 --> 00:10:12,900
- It was built by Mr. Yusuf Mansur and Dar Al-Qur'an group

168
00:10:12,900 --> 00:10:18,300
- They collaborated and built the place from donations

169
00:10:18,300 --> 00:10:22,700
- This place is not the property of Mr. Mansur or Ahmed Jameel only

170
00:10:22,700 --> 00:10:26,300
- It is for All the Muslims of Indonesia and the world!

171
00:10:26,300 --> 00:10:30,200
- Sheikh, how could you fund for this project

172
00:10:30,200 --> 00:10:35,100
- I have my own commercial businesses

173
00:10:35,100 --> 00:10:38,700
- And I have a TV show

174
00:10:38,700 --> 00:10:43,300
- At first year I did some contacting

175
00:10:43,300 --> 00:10:51,000
- My contract with the TV was for 9 Billion rupees

176
00:10:51,000 --> 00:10:53,100
- 9 Billion rupees from TV
- Yes

177
00:10:53,100 --> 00:10:57,300
- I donated all of that to this project, a gift to the Qur'an

178
00:10:57,300 --> 00:11:03,100
- Praise to Allah, my business became very profitable, Blessings

179
00:11:03,100 --> 00:11:05,900
- From Allah. Hotels, transportations

180
00:11:05,900 --> 00:11:08,100
- So you are a businessman
- Yes, praise to Allah

181
00:11:08,100 --> 00:11:10,100
- Ma'sha'Allah
- Praise to Allah

182
00:11:10,100 --> 00:11:12,700
- So you funded for all these buildings

183
00:11:12,700 --> 00:11:16,100
- Or do you have other donors

184
00:11:16,100 --> 00:11:17,400
- Of course, there are others

185
00:11:17,400 --> 00:11:21,900
- Participants from all over the country, from Indonesia

186
00:11:21,900 --> 00:11:23,300
- Ma'sha'Allah, so you have an endowment fund

187
00:11:23,300 --> 00:11:28,300
- exactly, endowment
- So the endowment completely funds this project

188
00:11:28,300 --> 00:11:30,100
- Yes
- And you have donors

189
00:11:30,100 --> 00:11:33,200
- And the profits of the endowment projects are spent on these schools
- Yes

190
00:11:33,400 --> 00:11:39,500
- I met so many sheikhs everywhere, Arabs and non-Arabs

191
00:11:39,500 --> 00:11:43,000
- But I never met anyone like Mr. Yusuf Mansur

192
00:11:43,000 --> 00:11:45,900

- He is very humble and active, ma'sha'Allah

193
00:11:46,000 --> 00:11:48,000
- Praise to Allah, we have other sites

194
00:11:48,000 --> 00:11:56,000
- We have three thousand memorization houses
- Glory to Allah

195
00:11:56,000 --> 00:11:59,000
- In each house we have one hundred students
- Ma'sha'Allah

196
00:11:59,000 --> 00:12:06,100
- A total of three hundred thousand students
- Ma'sha'Allah

197
00:12:07,400 --> 00:12:10,200
By Allah, sheikh Yusuf astonished me!

198
00:12:11,000 --> 00:12:14,000
The idea is great and brilliant!

199

00:12:14,000 --> 00:12:15,500


Imagine what he does!

200
00:12:15,500 --> 00:12:20,200
He has contacts, youth and businessmen in Indonesia

201
00:12:20,200 --> 00:12:22,100
They agree to use their houses

202
00:12:22,100 --> 00:12:24,100
as sites for students to memorize the Qur'an

203
00:12:25,000 --> 00:12:28,000
100 students in each house

204
00:12:28,200 --> 00:12:32,300
Now, sheikh Yusuf is supervising three thousands houses

205
00:12:33,000 --> 00:12:35,500
In different places in Indonesia

206
00:12:36,000 --> 00:12:39,900
Now, due to his intelligence and ambitions

207
00:12:39,900 --> 00:12:42,100
To spread memorization of the Qur'an in his country Indonesia,

208
00:12:42,300 --> 00:12:46,100
He is supervising, only by himself, on three hundred thousand

209
00:12:46,100 --> 00:12:48,200
..students memorizing the Qur'an

210
00:12:48,800 --> 00:12:50,200
Glad tidings, Sheikh Yusuf!

211
00:12:54,200 --> 00:12:56,300
- And all these centers are the same Dar Al-Qur'an Institute

212
00:12:56,300 --> 00:13:00,100
- No, they are independent schools

213
00:13:00,100 --> 00:13:04,800
- For example, If Yusuf wants to start a school to memorize the Qur'an

214

00:13:04,800 --> 00:13:07,800


- I mean he wants to use his house for that purpose

215
00:13:07,800 --> 00:13:09,200
- It is registered under his name!

216
00:13:09,200 --> 00:13:10,300
- The name of the owner?
- Yes

217
00:13:10,300 --> 00:13:12,000
- 'Yusuf school for memorization of the Qur'an'

218
00:13:12,000 --> 00:13:13,500
- Under supervision of Dar Al-Qur'an

219
00:13:28,000 --> 00:13:33,100
Sheikh Yusuf is a famous celebrity in Indonesia

220
00:13:33,100 --> 00:13:37,300
He has a daily show to help people memorize the Qur'an

221
00:13:37,300 --> 00:13:39,900

Under the principle of, few and lasting,

222
00:13:39,900 --> 00:13:41,900
is better than much but inconstant

223
00:13:41,900 --> 00:13:45,600
The name of his show is "Memorize one verse a day"

224
00:13:47,000 --> 00:13:53,800
- Praise to Allah, at 2005

225
00:13:53,800 --> 00:14:00,800
- I made a movie film
- A film?

226
00:14:00,800 --> 00:14:03,800
- Yes, Cinema movie for the theater

227
00:14:03,800 --> 00:14:06,100
- It was called "Be, and it is"
- Yes!

228
00:14:06,900 --> 00:14:12,000

- To teach people one verse in surat Ya-Sin

229
00:14:12,000 --> 00:14:13,900
- Glory to Allah, So you are the one who produced it!

230
00:14:13,900 --> 00:14:21,700
" His command is only when He intends a thing"

231
00:14:21,700 --> 00:14:27,800
" that He says to it, "Be," and it is."

232
00:14:27,800 --> 00:14:35,000
" So exalted is He in whose hand is the realm of all things,"

233
00:14:35,000 --> 00:14:38,700
" and to Him you will be returned."

234
00:14:38,700 --> 00:14:43,900
- Glory to Allah!
- Then, at the TV, they suggested me to do such a thing

235
00:14:43,900 --> 00:14:49,300
- in a daily show for the television

236
00:14:49,300 --> 00:14:50,300
- It was Ok with me

237
00:14:50,300 --> 00:14:51,600
- We started from the small surahs

238
00:14:51,600 --> 00:14:57,000
- From the 30th juzz, An-Naba
- Yes

239
00:14:57,000 --> 00:14:59,000
- Praise to Allah
- On TV

240
00:14:59,300 --> 00:15:02,100
- Me and Mr. Yusuf had so many incidents together

241
00:15:02,100 --> 00:15:04,700
- One of the nicest is that

242
00:15:04,700 --> 00:15:08,400
- We were in a very big party, in the masjid

243
00:15:08,400 --> 00:15:12,900
- And Mr. Mansur was teaching

244
00:15:12,900 --> 00:15:17,100
- He always admits that he is not a proficient teacher

245
00:15:17,100 --> 00:15:18,200
- And he is still learning the Qur'an, and

246
00:15:18,200 --> 00:15:19,700
- He never has a sheikh as an instructor

247
00:15:19,700 --> 00:15:22,000
- All what he learned was by his own efforts

248
00:15:22,900 --> 00:15:24,900
- His voice is very beautiful

249
00:15:24,900 --> 00:15:28,200
- Once he was teaching a huge congregation

250

00:15:28,200 --> 00:15:32,100


- He recites and they repeat after him

251
00:15:32,100 --> 00:15:35,600
- He was reading the last verse in surst An-Naba

252
00:15:37,200 --> 00:15:38,500
" Indeed, We have warned you of a near "

253
00:15:38,500 --> 00:15:41,100
" punishment on the Day when a man will observe..."

254
00:15:41,100 --> 00:15:45,400
- Instead of that he said; Yuma Yanzuru

255
00:15:46,200 --> 00:15:50,500
- He pronounced the letter TH wrongly as za

256
00:15:50,500 --> 00:15:52,800
- And the whole people repeated after him the same wrong way

257
00:15:52,800 --> 00:15:54,900
- I was there witnessing that

258
00:15:54,900 --> 00:15:57,600
- My brother, Sheikh Ali Jaber was next to me

259
00:15:57,700 --> 00:16:00,000
- So I asked him, what should we do sheikh?

260
00:16:00,000 --> 00:16:01,400
- We are surrounded by cameras

261
00:16:01,400 --> 00:16:04,300
- And it is all live streaming, we can't say this is wrong now

262
00:16:04,300 --> 00:16:06,900
- So we waited for him to finish

263
00:16:06,900 --> 00:16:11,200
- when he sat next to me, I said to him, 'Ustadh, I always tell you..'

264
00:16:11,200 --> 00:16:14,100
- '.. to bring out the tip of your tongue between your teeth..'

265

00:16:14,100 --> 00:16:17,700


- '..when you pronounce this letter'

266
00:16:19,200 --> 00:16:22,400
- I wanted to mention it to him to improve himself in the future

267
00:16:22,400 --> 00:16:25,600
- He jumped off his seat immediately

268
00:16:25,600 --> 00:16:28,600
- I realized that he is going to say what I told him to the audience

269
00:16:28,600 --> 00:16:30,000
- I stopped him, 'What are you going to do?'

270
00:16:30,000 --> 00:16:32,100
- He said, 'to explain what you just said'

271
00:16:32,100 --> 00:16:33,500
- I said, 'no, it is too late to do this now'

272
00:16:33,500 --> 00:16:36,300
- 'It's not nice that people say Mr Yusuf, the great teacher made a mistake'

273
00:16:36,900 --> 00:16:38,200
- He got very angry at me for saying that

274
00:16:38,200 --> 00:16:41,900
- He looked at me and said, 'This is the speech of Allah'

275
00:16:43,500 --> 00:16:46,800
- 'No one is greater than the speech of Allah SWT'

276
00:16:46,800 --> 00:16:52,000
- Then he immediately interrupted the show and took the mic.

277
00:16:52,000 --> 00:16:55,800
-Then he said, 'What I taught you earlier was wrong'

278
00:16:56,800 --> 00:16:58,000
- The pronunciation of that letter was wrong

279
00:16:58,000 --> 00:17:00,700
- Then he looked at me and called me, 'Sheikh Muhammad'

280

00:17:00,700 --> 00:17:02,000


- 'Come here!'

281
00:17:02,000 --> 00:17:03,300
- And he asked me to show them the

282
00:17:03,300 --> 00:17:05,100
- correct pronunciation of the letter

283
00:17:05,100 --> 00:17:08,300
- And to say the verse correctly again so they would repeat after

284
00:17:08,500 --> 00:17:13,700
- I believe that the Qur'an is for everyone

285
00:17:13,700 --> 00:17:20,300
- I invited all the residents of the nearby village
- Yes

286
00:17:20,300 --> 00:17:23,900
- Not to memorize the Qur'an

287
00:17:23,900 --> 00:17:27,300

- I invited them to eat

288
00:17:27,300 --> 00:17:29,700
- Come every one, we have food here

289
00:17:29,700 --> 00:17:31,700
- For food
- Food!

290
00:17:32,000 --> 00:17:33,400
- But before eating I said to them;

291
00:17:33,400 --> 00:17:40,000
- Peace be upon you, before we eat, listen to this

292
00:17:40,000 --> 00:17:45,500
" Ya-Sin...Ya-Sin...Ya-Sin"

293
00:17:45,500 --> 00:17:47,100
- Read after me, read

294
00:17:47,100 --> 00:17:52,000
- Then everybody said, " Ya-Sin...Ya-Sin...Ya-Sin"

295
00:17:53,000 --> 00:17:55,600
- I said, "Did you memorized it?"

296
00:17:55,600 --> 00:17:58,900
- "Yes, teacher, we memorized it, one verse"

297
00:17:58,900 --> 00:18:02,700
- Good, one verse, now let's eat!

298
00:18:19,000 --> 00:18:26,400
" And those who do not expect the meeting with Us say,"

299
00:18:26,400 --> 00:18:35,000
" "Why were not angels sent down to us,"

300
00:18:35,000 --> 00:18:38,400
" or [why] do we [not] see our Lord?""

301
00:18:39,900 --> 00:18:45,900
" They have certainly become arrogant within themselves"

302

00:18:45,900 --> 00:18:52,500


" and [become] insolent with great insolence."

303
00:18:52,500 --> 00:19:02,800
" The day they see the angels - no good tidings"

304
00:19:02,800 --> 00:19:08,000
" will there be that day for the criminals, "

305
00:19:08,000 --> 00:19:13,300
" and [the angels] will say, "Prevented and inaccessible.""

306
00:19:13,300 --> 00:19:15,000
- Ma'sha'Allah, praise to the Entirely Merciful, sheikh

307
00:19:15,000 --> 00:19:17,500
- May Allah bless you

308
00:19:18,500 --> 00:19:23,300
- The Sheikh is having...
- Wait, listen, I'll do better this time!

309
00:19:23,300 --> 00:19:29,000

- The Sheikh is having a flu!

310
00:19:29,000 --> 00:19:33,800
- In spite of that, praise to the Entirely Merciful,

311
00:19:33,800 --> 00:19:36,400
- His voice is very beautiful
- May Allah bless you

312
00:19:36,400 --> 00:19:40,700
- Qur'an is for all, not for students only

313
00:19:40,700 --> 00:19:44,900
- Everyone can memorize Qur'an

314
00:19:44,900 --> 00:19:48,900
- You are right sheikh, some people say, 'I am an Engineer'

315
00:19:48,900 --> 00:19:51,000
- 'It is not necessary for me to memorize Qur'an,'

316
00:19:51,000 --> 00:19:53,900
- Or I am a Doctor; I don't have to memorize Qur'an

317
00:19:53,900 --> 00:19:56,000
- Or a house wife, and so on..
- Exactly

318
00:19:56,000 --> 00:19:58,100
- Everyone can memorize Qur'an

319
00:19:58,100 --> 00:20:02,800
- Once I was on the street and the traffic light went red

320
00:20:02,800 --> 00:20:07,000
- The driver next to me

321
00:20:07,000 --> 00:20:10,800
- He recognized me

322
00:20:10,800 --> 00:20:14,600
- So he opened the window of his car and called over me

323
00:20:14,600 --> 00:20:18,300
- Mr. Yusuf, I memorized surst Al-Waqi'ah, praise to Allah

324
00:20:20,000 --> 00:20:22,800
- I was on the street!, It happens everywhere in train and airport

325
00:20:22,800 --> 00:20:27,700
- Once at the airport, I cried that time..Ma'sha'Allah

326
00:20:27,700 --> 00:20:29,300
- May peace and blessings be upon him

327
00:20:29,300 --> 00:20:31,700
- May Allah make us from the servants of the Qur'an
- Ameen

328
00:20:31,700 --> 00:20:34,500
- I was on the airplane

329
00:20:34,500 --> 00:20:40,900
- The pilot came out of his cabin

330
00:20:40,900 --> 00:20:43,800
- While the plain was on air

331

00:20:43,800 --> 00:20:46,300


- He said, I learned that Mr. Yusuf Mansur is on board

332
00:20:46,300 --> 00:20:53,000
- So he heard you were on board!
- Yes

333
00:20:53,000 --> 00:20:54,800
- And he came to me and said;

334
00:20:54,800 --> 00:20:58,300
- Mr. Yusuf, Please I want to recite for you

335
00:20:58,300 --> 00:21:02,100
- I said, 'Wow, the pilot!?'
- The pilot!

336
00:21:02,100 --> 00:21:03,900
- 'What do you want to recite?'

337
00:21:03,900 --> 00:21:09,100
- he said, "Praise to Allah, By the will of Allah I memorized the 30th juzz"

338

00:21:09,100 --> 00:21:10,300


- I said, 'ok, go on'

339
00:21:10,300 --> 00:21:13,900
- 'I seek refuge in Allah from the cursed Shaytan'

340
00:21:13,900 --> 00:21:18,000
" About what are they asking one another?"

341
00:21:18,000 --> 00:21:20,900
- He is not a student or a teacher

342
00:21:20,900 --> 00:21:23,200
