Some excerpts from the sermon:
"We said that when we listen to The QURAN, we are not listening to The QURAN, we are listening to ALLAH Subhanna hu wa ta alla and we made mention of the fact that not many people when they hear the words of The QURAN say, I hear ALLAH."
"And we also mentioned that language sometimes is an issue for some people obviously. They say, Well we don't understand. But the Barakat of The QURAN, the Baraka of The QURAN keeps on giving even if you can't understand the exact meanings; there is something in The QURAN that goes beyond your human mind and touches your heart."
"The PROPHET of ALLAH (May ALLAH's peace and blessings be upon him) was the living QURAN. His character. His Ibadah. His Shariah. His Haqiqah. ALLAH Subhana wa ta alla spoke and the PROPHET did! The PROPHET's wife, Ummul Mumineena Aisha said (Arabic spoken), his manners, his morals, his character was The QURAN."
"...but there was one element they had that we don't have and that is a QURANIC character. When was the last time you met a person and that person's character reminded you of The QURAN? His behavior...His or Her...Let's not get caught up in that stuff; his behavior, his interaction, his personality, his words, or his lack of words reminded you of Ayat in The QURAN? Where is this happening?"
"So we have a deficiency, a very serious deficiency and that is we have failed to make The QURAN our behavior!"
