We connect ourselves with the Oran. It is by showing our love for the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala about obaidul passing myblu salam Rahim Allah, one of the great scholars of Islam. He used to say that if you want to measure your worth, you want to hold yourself to account the look at your relationship with the Quran. Because the one who truly loves the Quran is the one who loves Allah and he loves His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the scholars of the past they would measure the Eman how high it was, or how low how strong or how weak with their relationship with the book of Allah subhana wa Tada. And it comes down to the first point. How much do we love the book of Allah
azza wa jal, we as humans, it is within our nature, that when we deeply, sincerely truly love someone or something, there are a number of things that we naturally are inclined towards. The first of them is that we will sacrifice for what we love more than for anything else. You love your children, you love your family members, you love your wife, or your husband, you love your parents, you're willing to sacrifice for them more than you are for others. Number two, you don't become bored, you don't become fed up with that company. If you're passionate about a hobby, if you have an interest that really takes and grasps your attention, you invest more time and more effort, because
of the love that you have for that thing. And likewise with our family members, you don't get bored of your children or hopefully, you don't get bored of your children. You don't get bored of your spouse's, you don't get bored of your parents. And even if there are times when they exasperate you, or know you, it's a limited amount of time before you understand that there's so integral to your life. That is what love does. For more love does is it makes us go further put in more time and more effort. If someone comes to you that you love and is close to you, and they ask you for a favor. And even though you're busy and you have so many other things going on, you will make time for them.
Because that is what love does. So the question therefore my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, at the beginning of this blessed month of Ramadan is how much do we love the Quran? How much are we willing to sacrifice for the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala? How much more time and effort Are we willing to put in in this month especially with the book of Allah azza wa jal? How quickly will we become fed up and tired from reading the Quran in this month that is the litmus test of how much we truly and sincerely love the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and I have no shadow of a doubt that each and every single one of us loves the Quran. We have a love for the book of Allah azza wa jal,
but there is a difference between having a love for something and truly and deeply and sincerely loving something, there is a difference between the two. And in order to take it to the next level, you have to invest the time and you have to put in the extra effort. And you have to be willing to sacrifice in this month of Ramadan Yes, when you're awake all night because you're in the masjid, praying taraweeh. And when you're tired all day, because you've been working nonstop all day, and it's an 18 hour fast on top of that, on top of and as well as all of the other responsibilities and chores that you have day in and day out. You will love for the puran means and necessitates that
despite all of those issues, you will find those pockets of time to read the Quran more, you will find the time when you're driving back and forth from work to engage in this thing with the Quran. You will find the time to learn and study and reflect over what Allah azza wa jal is saying to us in the book in his book subhana wa Tada. This is a month of the Quran. And it's the month in which we sound and do extra deeds of worship. And as much as we can have the greatest or from the greatest of those deeds of worship that we can perform as our self and our pious scholars have before us to say it is to attach yourself to the book of a large soldier, male large soldier will give us all the
ability to do so and make us from amongst those who truly sincerely and deeply love his book subhanho wa Taala Baraka low FICO muscle alarm, and Amina Mohammed, what are the early years of management
