It was narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “The Qur’an will come on the Day of Resurrection, like a pale man, and will say: ‘I am the one that kept you awake at night and made you thirsty during the day.” (Ibn Majah)
While there is a reward in reciting the Qur’an even without understanding, the true benefit of such a recitation is extremely limited and completely leaves aside it benefits as a reformer and guider for one’s soul.
Here, Sheikh Abdul Nasir Jangda reflects on some verses form Surat Az-Zumar (the thirty ninth Chapter of the Qur’an) which teaches us how to purify our faith and our relationship with Almighty Allah. Then he sheds some light on the verse which talks about sincerity (Ikhlas) which is the essence of faith.
Sheikh Abdul Nasir goes on to talk about the qualities and characteristics of the slaves of Allah as mentioned in the Surah:
…So give good tidings to My servants. Who listen to speech and follow the best of it. Those are the ones Allah has guided, and those are people of understanding. (Az-Zumar 39:17-18)
Enjoy watching this interesting talk to know more about the qualities of the sincere slaves of Allah and understand how to live the Qur’an.
