For him humbly leg up in alameen salatu salam ala rasulillah

00:00:11--> 00:00:48

Mayan or praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhana wa Tada. And may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon his seventh and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as to what follows my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam, we say once again and humbled Allah that Allah subhanho wa Taala has extended our lives and given us this ability and this chance once again, to witness this blessed month of Ramadan. This is also known as the month of the Quran, the month of guidance as Allah Subhana Allah refers to it in the Quran, and we need to understand something about Ramadan, my brothers and sisters in Islam, the month of Ramadan was actually the month of guidance

00:00:48--> 00:01:32

and Islam for a solar la Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Since this is the month in which the Quran was revealed a lot of Zoysia he says in the Angela who feel a lot the mobile rocker that we revealed the Quran in a blessed month. A lot of Xhosa, Lisa, Ramadan and Lillian Zilla feel that the month of Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed. This was the starting point of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this month of Ramadan. alongside with the Quran was the start of Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu and it was the start of Khadija robiola Islam and in her guidance, and it was the start of so many of the companions of Muhammad a bit of zubayr Paul ha it was the start of

00:01:32--> 00:02:12

men have been mobile Robbie, Allah who I know so many of the companions that went into STEM and accepted Islam and accepted the guidance of Islam. All of their start began during this month, in the month in which the Quran was revealed. And what was revealed from the Quran only five epilogue Bismillah Allah The Holla Holla can insert them in Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah via Allah will kalama level insane MLM yalom five as well enough in where people began their Islam and began the commitment and from then on until the end of their life they died on to this Islam for what we're trying to say my brothers and sisters in Islam is that when you come into this month of Ramadan,

00:02:12--> 00:02:49

understand that this was the starting point for salasar salah and it was the starting point for the companions. So in other words, everything that has happened in the past in your life, and you're not happy about and there are shortcomings in the past. You don't have to worry about this now that Allah azzawajal has given you the month of Ramadan, take the advantage of it and understand that the month of Quran and the month of Ramadan is all about the Quran. This is how amar zool describes it in the Quran, when he said Shahada Ramadan, and levy on Zilla Fie Hill for the month of Ramadan is the month in which Orion was revealed, as opposed to many things that happened in this month. You

00:02:49--> 00:03:27

know, this is the month in which fasting was made mandatory. Allah did not say Shahada, Ramadan and lovey fulfill sia. And it's the month in which we're praying so that the Torah we had it's the month of the month of so many things. Out of all these things, the only highlight that Allah subhanaw taala gives in this ayah and the definition he gives for the month of Ramadan is that it's the month in which the Quran was revealed. So we need to understand that our relationship with the Quran is supposed to renew it's supposed to refresh and it's supposed to restart and build an increase during this blessed month of Ramadan. When Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran. When he defined the Quran,

00:03:28--> 00:04:12

and he described its uniqueness and the effect that it's supposed to have on someone. Allah social explains it in the most eloquent of ayat in Surah azumah. Listen to this I Alonzo version. When he described the Quran he said, Allah hoonah Salah Arsenal Hadith kita mata shabbiha Maserati, this is an area in Surah Zuma, in where Omar is describing the uniqueness of this book, what makes this book unique as opposed to all the other books that have ever been published an orphan, Allah azza wa jal when he described the Quran, he began the ayah by saying Allah, there are only 34 is in the Quran that began with the name of Allah, and every era that began with the name of Allah. It was there was

00:04:12--> 00:04:54

something serious mentioned in it, so much that journey, every area that begins with Allah need to study on its own. So Allah azzawajal when he wants to describe this, the uniqueness of this book, the qualities of this book, he began the ayah by saying Allah Nasrallah, certain Hadith, he is the one who revealed Arsenal, Hadith. What does it mean? Arsenal, Hadith, the best of speech, the best of speech means, yani, its words are beautiful. Its letters are beautiful, its meanings are beautiful. what it calls to is beautiful. All of this is Southern Hadith. That's the first description given to this poll and then Alonzo he says, Kitab and Mata shall be one that parts of

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

this books are similar to other parts of the book. Parts of the book are similar to other parts. What does that mean? You

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

Meaning, the beginning is beautiful, the meeting is beautiful and the end of it is also beautiful. All of it is the best of speech. This is the uniqueness of the book, any other book that was ever published. If you take a copy of it, maybe you'll find sometimes chapter one and two are exciting, interesting. And then towards the end of the book, he gets boring, right? any book is like this. If you were to take some poetry for example, you'll find that some of the beginning of the poetry sometimes it's it's interesting, it's exciting, enjoying right and then right towards the end he begins to get boring and so on. And and any kind of speech and any kind of word talk and listen,

00:05:37--> 00:06:17

sometimes there's boring ones and sometimes there's inspirational motivational ones, except the book of Allah subhana wa Tada. What is unique about it is that Allah azzawajal said, Kitab and Mutasa Bian. It is a book in which its parts are similar to each other. So when you read the first letter, it is beautiful. It's eloquent the best of speech. When you get to the middle of the club, it also has the same quality in the same attribute. It is beautiful in in speech, it's eloquent, its meanings are beautiful, and also at the end of the colon that remains consistent. Kitab and mata shabbiha on the face of this earth ever achieved something like this, other than the book of Allah

00:06:17--> 00:06:58

subhanho wa Taala Allahu Allah Arsalan, Hadith kita urban watershed and the third description Allah gives it he said, Matheny, muthoni masani. In other words, it's repetitive it repeats itself. So Allah subhanho wa Taala. He'll tell us about the story of Adam, Allah you set out once he'll repeat the story of Elijah Malik instead of more than 25 times, a lot of stories and He will not speak about the paradise once or twice he'll speak about the paradise over 200 times. What allows origin speaks about his greatness, He will not speak at his greatness once or twice, once or twice, he'll speak over 1000 times about his greatness. It's a repetitive book, why? This is Allah subhanho wa

00:06:58--> 00:07:38

Taala teaching us that the book The Quran, it's not only about information, rather, the book is about transformation. It's about transforming the person. So by the end of the time, by the end, when you have read the entire poem, you've read about the paradise over 200 times, and you've heard about Allah subhanaw taala his greatness over 1000 times and what this is supposed to do, it is supposed to penetrate deep in your heart, so that you do not forget these meanings. This is why the book is repetitive so that these meanings penetrate deep in your heart and become one with your heart and you live them during your life. Just like last one of Mosul Allahu alayhi wa sallam was

00:07:38--> 00:08:23

described by a shot of the love Juana cannot plan an EMP. That's how much the meanings repeated in his life, that he himself became a man that walks that if you cannot be a plant that walks at least bill saw that walks at least be an area that walks on Earth. They can live with it for one week, take a soil and live with it for a month and tried to implement its meanings and be conscious and cognizant of its meanings during your life during your week during your month for loss of Hannah Hua Tada, nessa acid and Hadith Kitab and Mata shall be nothing. Now after this when he described what makes this program unique. The rest of the IRS speaks about what effect it's supposed to have on the

00:08:24--> 00:09:07

philosophy of Helena hautala. He says, the woman who should do the Lavina shall not have been home. Now he's describing the effect the Quran has on a person. He says those who feel alone, you know a boom those who fear Allah, their skin Sheila's when it hears the word of Allah subhanaw taala. In other words, the word of Allah azza wa jal is not only something experienced on the tongue, rather it's felt by the body it's actually felt by the skin. Duck Sharon Roman julio de la Vina Shalom, my Kennedys, Lisa LaValle Chateau Bella mahana. She says, When the water used to come down on lasagna masala he used to become heavy and he used to sweat even in the coldest of nights. she breathed

00:09:07--> 00:09:47

would come on to him and he would sit on him and literally he would give him this poor add on his heart. There's a lobby room, I mean, I'll be Kelly Tokuda, minimoon v. And he used to drip of sweat. And once there was a companion that was with him at the time, the way he came down, and the companion had his foot underneath the llama while he was under his knee. And he said that I almost my foot almost came off my his whole leg almost came off. That's how much pressure there was from those little muscles The moment he was so heavy. That's the that's the physical effect. They had on Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Gani In other words, the Quran has an effect in Saluki

00:09:47--> 00:10:00

alayka, colon tequila, as a large social describes, he says to the Navy sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we're going to reveal a heavy word on you not only in its meanings and what it calls to, but also physically

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

It was heavier those who lost the moment it used to come down Fat Duck, Sharon Roman who do levina

00:10:07--> 00:10:51

Allah subhanho wa Taala when he spoke about the mountain, and he said lo and Zenda heaven Quran, Allah shovin that if this was revealed on a mountain, the way was revealed a little sooner, but in the case it was revealed on a mountain, lower portion, you would have seen the mountain become humbled moto sub dam that he announced is supposed to be strong and solid. Mr. Social said it will become soft and humble. Then what would happen with a sedan maharsha Tila it'll blow up, it'll explode. This is a mountain and the next time you see a mountain, be jealous from the mountain Jani the mountain would have been affected by the word of Allah Subhana data, how much more does the

00:10:51--> 00:11:05

human being? And how much more does the Muslim is earned and expected from him to react with this code, and to be humbled by this client and to be softened by this philosophy? panatela says structure Roman who should do to levina

00:11:06--> 00:11:50

that's the first kind of relationship that is experienced with the Koran on the outer skin, and then allows or shall he sells, full methylene blue waku the killer, and then the skin and now a lot of insurance the heart, he says and the skin and the heart as a result softens to the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala it humbles to the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal, yani, in other words, now, it had a it had an effect on the outcome of the human being. Now it's gone in and it's reached his heart and his heart has softened. Now this person has become a different person altogether. His attitude has changed. His character has changed, his manners has changed his relationship with alarm

00:11:50--> 00:12:34

soil has changed. What caused this change the Quran? You see when someone is transformed by the Quran? What do we call this alarm, social, he calls it something in the Quran. He says in that area, the leka houda Maria DB Heba amin a body that is the guidance of a law when one feels and experienced this or an insight. This is the exact meaning of guidance. This is what guidance is, which is one shot Romana Levine's in a field who then the nurse, you're in the month of guidance, and you've been given the book of guidance, month of guidance with the book of guidance. If you put them together and make the most of it, you will become guided as a result, anything that it was

00:12:34--> 00:13:15

attached to Orion was praised by Allah subhanaw taala. Allah was praised by Allah because of the scrolls of sheets were written in that chabrier Allah has Salam who came down with the Quran was praised by Allah in NA Hola, hola, sulan creme de la Shima chemo bar anthem, I mean, these are referring to Sabrina usera and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who received this call and as a result was praised by Allah were in the kallada Hello can have him and so this is the general principle. The closer you come to the lab, the closer you affiliate yourself with the Quran, the more you're praised and honored in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the further away you go

00:13:15--> 00:13:54

from the Quran, the further away you depart from the praise and the honor of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Before the Quran, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was described as Berlin overshadow Kabbalah, after the Quran further, that's when the guidance came. Without the Quran, you are described as Berlin with the Quran, automatically from zero to 100. Further, we need to understand the month of the Quran. relationship is supposed to grow stronger and stronger during this month, my brothers and sisters in Islam. Let's understand this. Some people make that commitment. And they see it later Allah we're going to begin to read the Quran. And we're going to ascribe ourself with this

00:13:54--> 00:14:33

corner, we're going to build this relationship. He starts the first day, second day, now we're on the fifth night of Ramadan, and then the machine begins to deteriorate bit by bit, and he cannot read anymore and he starts getting Danny sick of his tongue becomes very heavy headaches, or whatever happens there. Let's understand something my brothers and sisters in Islam, you need to continue. This is normal effect. You need to have support when you read every deed that you do require sovereign, your soul that requires sovereign, your first thing requires sovereign, your spirit requires sovereign, every deed that you do require a solid one Quran is no different. When

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

you read the Quran, it requires several as well and don't expect an effect to happen overnight. If Allah subhanaw taala wills that it happens, but what is expected from you is that you continue in your citation of the Quran and you don't give up. Even if you've set an expectation for yourself that I expect to finish use it every night. And by now it's 95. I haven't even got the expectation on us. Let me just close off and we'll see it Next we'll move on. Don't do that.

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

This is the turn of the show upon Exactly. This is why before you read the Quran, you say over we lay him in a shape on the regime. And when you say that you're asking the Lord to protect you, from a shape of regime, be conscious when you say how do we lay him in a shape or him be conscious of the fact that it is a shape on a machine that is standing between you and the relationship with the client. It's a Sherpa machine that stands between you and opening this Orion and starting to read and continue to read. It's a show upon that stands between you and that's when you say I would like you to show bonded with him, feel it in your heart, and take a time Take some time to read out,

00:15:38--> 00:15:42

we'll be legging in a ship order for him. Because if a large portion was to accept this from you,

00:15:45--> 00:16:22

you're asking a lot to protect you from a shipper. If Allah was to accept this draft from you, you'll find yourself on a highway with the plan, you'll find yourself going forward with the Quran. And then before you begin to read, you say Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the most, the Most Merciful, the old merciful, when you read this name, manual him when you read this name of Allah, realize and understand, this is where you're going to find blah, blah, blah, this is where you're going to find the mercy of Allah. And this is the garden of His mercy and the garden of his blessing. This is where the kindness and the compassion and the

00:16:22--> 00:16:35

gentleness and the mercy is found within this book. And then you begin to read and one very important tip that you're supposed to do, as you read this Quran and begin to draw nearer and nearer to the skull and convert every eye into

00:16:36--> 00:16:42

convert the if you read into advance. So when you begin and you say and humbly leg a little bit I mean

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

and you realize and you understand that

00:16:47--> 00:17:28

the names of alarms or shall stop there, raise your hand and ask Allah to bestow His mercy upon you. You read Maliki or Medina, the king and the owner and the Master of the Day of Judgment, stop and say, Oh Allah, make that the easier upon me and my family and the Muslims. He I cannot put you alone we worship stop and say, Oh Allah, I need Allah the click of a shoe, click our house nearby that helped me and aid me and support me to continue in your worship. And every I like this stop and make a drama. And don't use the excuse that what about if I don't know what I read? 100% you've already known and you come across words like Adele Jassim, agenda, Mozilla.

00:17:29--> 00:18:06

When you come by these words, which you know the meaning stop was colossal for the paradise and ask Him for His mercy. Ask Him for His forgiveness. Ask ask Allah azza wa jal when you read, this is how you begin to draw this relationship between you and the Quran. Why? Because when you read the Quran, this is Allah subhanaw taala speaking to you, and when you make this is you're speaking to Allah subhanaw taala. And when someone speaks to someone else, he expects a response from him, this will enhance your relationship with the Quran, and it will take it to another level and it will keep dragging you and bringing you closer and closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. For these are the points

00:18:06--> 00:18:39

that we need to understand my brothers in Islam, this is the month of the Quran, make the most of it, make a plan for yourself from now until the end of the month, how much you're going to read increase in that so that when Ramadan finishes, go back to a standard that you have you only there's always a principle that you're supposed to live in your life a principle. And I'll end with this with every worship that Allah Subhana Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us have a share of it. What do I mean by this? So there's the one of the worship is to read this poem.

00:18:40--> 00:19:19

make for yourself a part that you're going to read. And you will never ever, ever back down from this part. So if that is half wishes, if it is four pages, if it is five pages, whatever it is set, this is set for your life, if you find in a day where there's motivation, and there's encouragement, and there's strength in this will and ability to read, read more. But if you find this day that you're lazy and you cannot, then you never drop from your standard, have a standard that's it. Just like solids and water, for example, make a standard for yourself that every day your son or daughter is one worker, at least in this way you find courage and motivation to worship, pray more than that.

00:19:20--> 00:19:59

And in these you find yourself weak and you do not have the ability that never dropped down from a standard set for yourself a standard do that in this Blizzard month with the plan set for yourself a standard and during these days increase in your reading. And after Ramadan, go back to your standard never go down from it only increase in days where Allah subhanaw taala opens up and gives you that ability to read when the best of the resuscitation is at night. Or some people think that the resuscitation during the day when the fasting is better than the night wrong. The best of the resuscitation of the forearm is that which happens at night. Why? Because in the Hadith and the

00:19:59--> 00:19:59

views on the law

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

Your cell phone has been described by Mr. Bessel have a loved one that he used to meet up in Ali Salaam every night of Ramadan. And he used to study the Quran with him a lot so he would send you breathed in avisar salam at night, and he would read the Quran with him at night. So the best time to read the Quran is the night. This is why a thorough way was made that night. And the main pillar of a thorough way is the resuscitation of the Quran which happens at night. So the resuscitation at night is much more virtuous than the resuscitation during the day. And even then in both cases there is reward but do not forget to give some of the night some plan especially in the in the last third

00:20:41--> 00:21:27

of the night. But in Ramadan, there's something special about sort of the Allahu anhu he mentioned that when a third of the night is over, Allah subhanho wa Taala descends in other words every night of the olara Zoysia descends in the last third of the night except in Ramadan Amazonian descends in the last two thirds of the night. And to get up before a Soho get up before solid and fresher and have some time in where you read the Quran. We have some tools that do that and you will find a change you'll find you'll experience a change during that night. And during that day. These are some tips and Sharma data to help us be of the lay down and our worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala was to

00:21:27--> 00:21:31

make us people of the Quran, people of the tsunami masala in olio Veliko father Allah Himself

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

Mohammed
