Assalamualaikum and a very warm welcome to the philosophy of fasting

00:00:53 --> 00:01:20

Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen. All praise is due to Allah. All peace and blessings be upon Muhammad the last prophet and messenger of Allah. As always, it's my ultimate honor to welcome in the studio, Dr. Hakim al al dad. I Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah who Baraka, thanks so much for joining us in the studio today. Because I Calaca Well, Doctor, I want to take this time as you know, in previous episodes, we focusing upon the

00:01:22 --> 00:01:37

and we got to a certain point about saying the current is so special in Ramadan. So let's find out now why the current is so special in Ramadan Smilla Rahmanir Rahim o salat wa salam ala Rasulillah the Quran as we said

00:01:38 --> 00:02:03

that Allah Allah Allah mentioned in three areas that Allah Allah Allah revealed the Quran in Ramadan. So this is more than enough to make Ramadan as the month of the Quran. And that was explicitly mentioned in the first area that talk about the Quran and Ramadan, Sharona Madonna lady on Zillow fee, Al Quran who deadliness you have a unit in mineral who the world for

00:02:05 --> 00:02:55

So, the month of Ramadan is a special month for the Quran. The Quran should be read more, definitely during the month of Ramadan, we should put more attention to Quran in Ramadan. In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to receive revelation throughout the holy and did you breathe the angel Jibreel who used to come to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam every year in Ramadan, to revise with him whatever he taught him throughout the year. And he used to tell him that this verse has been approved this verse has been approved gate abrogated and so on. And they, as issued will be Aloka and her said that he used to make more out of them and Mudaraba of the Quran with the Prophets

00:02:55 --> 00:03:37

Allah Allah Allah salah, they, the scholars say that you're the Gibreel the angel Jibreel used to read and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam used to listen and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam used to read and Gibreel used to listen, this is especially in the month of Ramadan SubhanAllah. And also she said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told her on the year he died on the year of the Prophet SAW Selim died that Gibreel revised the Quran twice with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she said why he said, I believe that this is my end time. This is the end of my time.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:39


00:03:40 --> 00:04:32

it is it is it is a fact that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam used to put more attention to earn in Ramadan. And that's why I've been ambassador of the Allahu Taala Han who used to say that the prophets Allah has him used to be a generous person, he used to be more generous than the blazing wind. And he used to be generous in particular, or more in the month of Ramadan when he studied the Quran with Gibreel and that's why this study of the Quran, the study of the Quran, that takes place in Ramadan it should have an impact on the personality of the person. When once we talk about philosophy of fasting, this is a very important element. The study of the Quran during the month of

00:04:32 --> 00:04:59

Ramadan should they change the personality? Yes of Muslims. Definitely a why? Because the Quran touches their hearts, the Quran it changes them. The Quran teaches them and the prophets Allah Allah Allah sent them as a result of reading the Quran with Jabril it used to be what more generous during the month of Ramadan Of course, and see it is it is proven that

00:05:00 --> 00:05:06

At the earliest colors used to put more attention to code and during the month of Ramadan

00:05:07 --> 00:05:49

you know Imam Malik he was one of the big Imams of the four Imams. He used to leave any teaching or teaching anything and he used to what dedicate himself for the Quran, Quran more and more. And they mentioned you will be really amazed to hear that they mentioned that Imam Shafi Rahim Allah used to leave everything as well during the month of Ramadan and just focus on reciting the Quran to the level that he used to finish the Quran 60 times

00:05:50 --> 00:06:43

during the month of Ramadan, mashallah, mashallah not only this, they also mentioned that Imam Abu Hanifa, he used to finish the Quran 60 times, he used to finish the Quran 60 times during the month of Ramadan, which means that they used to complete to complete resuscitation of the Quran And subhanAllah This is, by the way, see many of us especially for the non Arabic speaking people, especially for those who do not memorize the Quran, they will say this is unbelievable. Unbelievable, this is impossible, but those who memorize the Quran and they read the Quran fluently, yes. And frequently as well. They will find Quran. Easy read a blessing, yes, passing very quickly.

00:06:43 --> 00:07:26

Of course, they can really finish a complete Quran or re citation of the Quran in maybe you can say, eight hours, or something like this, because they read it very, very fluently. Yes. And quickly. I have some questions for you. Dr. Hathaway, if you don't mind, one of the questions is, I want to ask you very first of all, let's say in the Western world, we get many young children or even people saying, Well, I haven't got time to read the crowd. I'm too busy, I have to go to school, I have to go to work. I have to do this. I'm busy. Can I not just put the headphones on and listen to the Koran. Okay, this is a very good point to see. When we mentioned about Shafi and Abu Hanifa, they

00:07:26 --> 00:08:18

receive their recite Quran this number of times, it doesn't mean we tell people leave everything and focus on the Quran. If people can do it, that is very good. But in the West, people can't do it. So we can't tell them, no, stop going to the school, stop going to universities, et cetera. And just focus on the Quran because that is not possible. They will be sacked, et cetera, they are non Muslim countries. But whenever the person can do this, that is good. And this is See this is why we said planning for Ramadan show is really important because some people who work some people who work they don't have any other commitments. They can't take holidays during the month of Ramadan. I'm asking

00:08:18 --> 00:09:10

all our brothers and sisters living in the West or living in other countries you plan your holiday just to maybe travel or to relax or to do something maybe a year ahead and you don't Why don't you take your holiday it during the month of Ramadan Allah doctor so it will be a time for you to recharge your battery to gain more Hassan and to focus on the Quran to focus on yourself not just materialistic life, materialistic life and so on. Of course if you can do it, then why not every single person who works or most of the people who work they have a holiday time of course why don't they make the holiday time a great force or and and in particular during the month of Ramadan?

00:09:10 --> 00:09:59

Definitely you know doctor what keeps coming through very strongly is you know my messages to the viewers at home forget the dunya forget dunya book that holiday for Ramadan because it's important that we read the Quran definitely. So moving on Doctor one of the next question is definitely for me and the the brothers and sisters who can't read or Arabic. So how can we recite the Quran or read the Quran? Okay, this is a good point. There's a Calaca for that. And I want to maybe embarrass you. Yes, yes, definitely. You must learn. Yes, you must learn Quran and don't take it in a very offensive way which is not offensive. Definitely a Muslim who does not read the Quran properly.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:01

is a bad Muslim.

00:10:03 --> 00:10:07

There is no excuse for any Muslim to say that I can't read the Quran.

00:10:08 --> 00:10:30

For me, this is it. And subhanAllah there is a statement by Imam Tilbury Imam Tabari he was, he is the greatest professor, he you can say that he's the father of all Morpha Syrian movements he means those who interpret and explained the meanings of the Quran, very great scholar.

00:10:32 --> 00:10:50

Anyway, they say that he wrote in his life, what Europe could you not write in the dark age or in the Dark Ages? Only. And he said to his students, let us write the explanation of the Quran. They said, how big that he said

00:10:51 --> 00:10:53

500 or 50,000

00:10:54 --> 00:11:06

paper or or documentary, they said that oh, this is impossible, we will die before that. Then he summarized it. And we have his book now. Which is

00:11:07 --> 00:11:08

tafsir Al Quran.

00:11:11 --> 00:12:04

They will have the Quran we have it ready in our hands? Of course it is in Arabic. Yes. Jeremy Albania and Peter with the Quran. He said even Jarier. He said, I am amazed and I am really surprised to see people enjoying the Quran and they do not understand the Quran. How can people enjoy the Quran and they do not understand it. What does that mean? It means that the one who does not read the Quran, he is what he is disattached from Allah, Allah Allah, from the light of Allah, Allah Allah. So how can this Muslim wanted to be a good Muslim, and he doesn't have to read the panel. That's why my message to you and to all of our viewers, whether they are new Muslims, whether

00:12:04 --> 00:13:00

their languages Arabic, non Arabic, all of us have no excuse not to be able to read the Quran fluently. Subhanallah and we can set a plan for people to learn Quran and to read Quran, brother Rafi, you said that your life had changed when you started to read the Quran definitely. And you still do not read or and very fluently. Imagine what will happen to your life. If you start reading the Quran fluently. Definitely. And as I say to our brothers and sisters, you will never enjoy Islam. You will never enjoy Islam, if you are not enjoying the Quran, and you will not enjoy the Quran unless you are very close to the Quran. And you read the Quran, free freak frequently and yes,

00:13:00 --> 00:13:12

fluently. I definitely agree with you. That's all we have time for right now in this part, Doctor, I guess we'll pick up on after that after the break and we're just going to take a quick break. Stay tuned. Assalamualaikum welcome

00:13:17 --> 00:13:17


00:13:19 --> 00:13:20

Oh man.

00:13:21 --> 00:13:21


00:13:24 --> 00:13:25


00:13:26 --> 00:13:27

Oh, man.

00:13:28 --> 00:13:29


00:13:31 --> 00:14:18

Salam Alaikum and a very warm welcome back to the philosophy of fasting. Well, before the break, we were talking about the Quran. And the, you know, the ultimate reason why we must read the Quran in Ramadan, and especially in the Arabic language. And Dr. Hatton was saying, Look, you must read the Quran in Arabic, it's important that a Muslim must know the doctor touched my heart once again by saying look, you you yourself Rafi, you must learn the Quran. So Dr. Let's pick up on and say what is that plan to learn the Quran in Arabic? Yeah, this allows for that was salam ala Rasulillah first of all, that reading the Quran, reading the Quran in English is not reading the Quran is reading the

00:14:18 --> 00:14:48

meanings of the Quran. Yes, and that is good. The person will learn the basic meanings of the Quran. But it is not an act of a bad what is an act of a brother is what to read the Quran in Arabic because Allah revealed that Allah likes that Allah likes his words to be recited everywhere in the world. And that's why we like to see more people reading the Quran we would like to see non Muslims

00:14:49 --> 00:14:52

start reading the Quran and submitting

00:14:53 --> 00:15:00

to the Quran. Why? Because then Allah sees more people glorifying Him through

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

Whoa, reciting his own words definitely. So and that's why, you know, the Prophet sallallahu sallam. The very famous Hadith did have delight because the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, the one who reads any single letter from the Quran, he will get one Hassan.

00:15:16 --> 00:15:35

He will get one husband, and then the prophets Allah wa sallam said, I don't see Alif Lam Meem as one letter, I say, Olive is letter, lamb is letter mean is letter. So by reading Alif Lam Meem you will get 300 In fact, you will get more than the brother of it.

00:15:36 --> 00:16:36

Do you know that Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim which is one verse from the Quran, and it is the first verse of Surah Fatiha. Do you know that it includes 19 letters? 19 letters means 19 has no good deed. In fact, Allah, Allah Allah out of his generosity, he said that normally there has an out of his generosity. He said the Hasina will be given us 10 100 When a person makes 100 Allah who will give him 10 has hunted and Allah even man, me multiply it more than though so the one who reads Listen, our viewers, the one who reads just Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, he will get 19 Hasina. In fact, 19 times 10 190 hashanah shall how long it takes to recite Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Okay

00:16:36 --> 00:16:38

take the other story.

00:16:40 --> 00:16:49

Surah Fatiha Surah Fatiha it includes more than 150 letters

00:16:50 --> 00:18:01

just to read fattier, which means what? Which means 1500 Good deed by just reading Surah Fatiha that does not take even maybe one minute or so, of course read Surah Fatiha Of course. So, by reading Surah Fatiha, you are getting 1500 Hassan and it is the Mercy of Allah that we Muslims read Surah Fatiha at least 17 times a day because we are praying five times a day and we are doing 17 raka a day. Yes to the Fajr for the whole for us. Three Mallory for Asia, the total is 72. If we read Surah Fatiha 17 times 17 times 1500 It has Anna, which means that by reciting Surah, it has no we are getting almost 30,000 has Anna, of course, every day, every day. And by the way, if you make a call,

00:18:01 --> 00:18:11

I would like to take this opportunity. My dear brothers and sisters especially we are talking to people from different backgrounds, people in different countries.

00:18:12 --> 00:19:11

One of the best things that you do is to teach people how to read Surah Fatiha yes Wallahi see, if we know and we believe in the reward that we will get by teaching people Surah tell Fatiha we will pay money to people in order for them to accept that they receive Surah Fatiha from us in order for them to accept that we teach them Surah Fatiha not they pay us money in order to what in order to teach them if normally people you know when you want to study something, you go and you pay your teacher, we should pay people money in order for them to learn how to lead to rotate. Why? Because as far as the person reading Surah Al Fatiha the one who taught him Surah Al Fatiha will get a

00:19:11 --> 00:19:21

similar reward. So for example, you accepted Islam the one who taught you so that Al Fatiha Raza Rafi, whenever you read

00:19:22 --> 00:19:31

whenever you pray, yes, the daily prayer you will read Surah Fatiha in 17 times you will get 30,000 Has

00:19:32 --> 00:19:59

the one who told you he will get 30,000 has an A for himself and he will get similar 30,000 has no because he told you Mashallah. So every day you are giving him 30,000 has another 30,000 has an and whenever he dies, he you will be continuously giving him in his grave. 30,000 has another 30,000 Hashanah and so on. Not only this, you said you have a daughter

00:20:00 --> 00:20:45

Have you started to teach her Surah Fatiha, you will be getting 30,000 Hasina for your daughter. And that person who taught you so what Fatiha he will get 60,000 has enough because you taught your daughter and he was the source of this I shall so he will be getting 30,000 has no for your daughter 30,000 has no for you and it will be what? going on and on Subhanallah this is by what? By teaching Surah Al Fatiha that's why I appeal to all of our brothers and sisters. First of all, to rake to learn how to read Surah Fatiha properly and then to teach it to other people. Definitely.

00:20:47 --> 00:20:48

Sorry, our job

00:20:50 --> 00:20:53

is very, very important. Yes talk about us.

00:20:54 --> 00:21:32

Now you said about how can we read Quran in Arabic first of all, Allah Allah Allah confirm that he made it easy to read or while uppity Yes sir. Now call analysts Zeke river hunted me Medaka we made it easy for those who want to read it. In the beginning, brother Rafi, you might find that it is a little bit difficult because your your the muscles of your house are not trained to read the statement. Like the heart. Yeah, like that, like the bot. Definitely grab your throat.

00:21:33 --> 00:22:26

I mean, we can't do it. Exactly. But believe me, once you get into this, it will be very smooth. Very easy. Definitely. And that's why you will find in the worst, I send my child to a Muslim School. And in that Muslim school, most of the people are not Arabs. Yes. They memorize the Quran by the age of 10. Yes. And in my son's school, of course. They memorize the Quran many of them. This is the plan that they memorize the Quran by the age of 10 from different bank grounds of Pakistan is Bengali Somalis. Some of them are white people. Wala he if you listen to them, you will say Subhan Allah is this a Bangladeshi guy who is reading of course they are Western Westerner Bhangra were

00:22:26 --> 00:22:53

born in the West. So they are not fluent in their own language. But when you they are fluent in English, yes. And they shall have the same difficulties in pronouncing ha ha wah and so on. But if you listen to them, will Allah he will enjoy the citation. Of course you will see those younger children. They are competing oh they say, Oh, I am reading like today's you know, the Imam of the Hello.

00:22:54 --> 00:23:12
