But yeah, you're living in LA Wakulla Conan said EDA.
Well, if you look,
well my Yota Allah rasool Allah foccacia hos and Alina, my dear brothers,
my respective sisters.
When we look at how we feel in those seasons, where we engage the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, when we just go back
in memory and
reflect on our state
of mind, state of heart,
our spiritual health
we find that these were the best days of the year.
And here we are
only six months away
our beloved month of Ramadan.
And it used to be the tradition of our pious predecessors in the past
that they start talking about Ramadan, six months in advance.
Their tradition was six months after Ramadan. They're asking Allah subhanaw taala to accept whatever they had done Ramadan.
Six months after Ramadan.
They continue to relive the spirit of Ramadan. Six months after Ramadan, they want to make sure during the six month after Ramadan, that they behave
and that they maintain they behave in a fashion that reflects the spirit of Ramadan so that all of their great deeds in the month of Ramadan were accepted to make sure that they were accepted. And then it is in this month in this period that they start gearing up for
charging themselves preparing themselves
for the next Ramadan. Begging Allah Subhana Allah and asking Allah azza wa jal to deliver them to that to that Ramadan.
But the today what I wanted to discuss wasn't necessarily that portion of it, preparing ourselves for Ramadan and gearing up for Ramadan.
But I wanted to talk about what one of the aspects one of the one of the elements that make the month of Ramadan very special
is the Quran
that's what I want to focus on. You see those who recite the Quran
in the month of Ramadan,
the people that are most pursued in the month of Ramadan
now's the time when they start making deals and connections and preparations, some of them already long time ago, but now is the time where they start preparing themselves and come up with a game plan for themselves. Now's the time where they start those those who need to revise and solidify their have now is the time they start doing that.
They have for the people that we asked to come and lead us in salah they reengage the Quran
six months prior to Ramadan, they start gearing up some obviously so do it a little later. But now is the time where they re engaged.
And any one of us
that develops a special connection with the Quran, even Wallahi Wallahi even if it's one verse a day will tell you
that they notice the difference.
So what is it
that makes it so special?
And what am I asking myself starting from this day and onward?
To Do With regards to our relationship with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah azza wa jal in the Quran tells us Yeah, are you Honolulu?
Oh people, all mankind, all human beings
There has come to you among Raghava
a loving, caring advice
from your Lord who cares about you, who sustains you who takes care of you?
Who maintains your affairs? Your Lord who wants what is best for you? Who knows what is best for you and I don't want Calico who will not even have you there has come to you from your Lord Allah. Allah azza wa jal calls it mo ala mera be come from your Lord.
Notice that he didn't say mean Allah from Allah or Meenal Jabbar
or from Allah subhanaw taala says, Mira become your Lord,
the one that cares for you.
The one that nourishes you takes care of you.
mirabito is a message of love and care.
It's a message that came
to ensure our success and our happiness and ultimately our salvation
When she only Murphy's pseudo
and it's a healing in a cure for that wishes in the hearts, it came to purify you Curie cure you and it came to
make you a better person, a healthier person. When she felt really mad for sudo in only Allah azza wa jal knows what is in the sudo.
Very often you see people running around, they look very fine. They look like they got they're in control of their lives and their affairs, they appear to be very successful and doing very well.
And you may not realize that they're either pretending or they they themselves may not be even aware of how much they're carrying.
how stressed they are, how overwhelmed, they may be, they don't know. They may not even know or even if they know they may be good at hiding it.
And everyone around them embrace them.
And then it's all of a sudden that either stress gets to them.
Or they may even worst case scenario is do something to themselves because they can't take it anymore.
So Allah subhanaw taala says there is something that I have sent you something that is very special, where she felt really manifest. And Allah subhanaw taala says Shiva is a cure for everything.
It heals the heart, but you have to allow it access to the to your to your heart.
You have to allow access to your solder your heart, your chest. Oh
Put in your chest for it, and let it do its miracle.
Some miraculous book, let it do its miracle, it can heal you.
It can literally heal you
what she found.
Not only that, well who then and it's a guidance
for the mind, for the intellect, it opens up your eyes.
It opens up your ears.
It broadens your horizon.
It makes you a better thinker.
Well, who then is a guidance it shows you the path. Well, and then on top of that,
it is mercy from Allah subhanaw taala
is a source of love and compassion from Allah subhanaw taala little more meaning for the believers. Yeah, you're a nurse oh people.
And Allah Subhana Allah dresses all people
there has come to you, Mira become from your Lord
Ajay Kumar, were able to Mira Beckham there has come to you this loving advice from your Lord, where she found one and a cure and healing. Well, who then guidance what, then what meaning to those who believe
this is the secret of the Quran. So whenever No wonder whenever we have more exposure to it, we immediately sense or notice the difference.
That's why we're better. We're the best we can be in the month of Ramadan. Because we just happen to allow ourselves to be exposed to the Quran.
We finally make time for it.
We finally come back to it.
And the Quran does its work on us. And we're better individuals.
And Allah subhana with dialysis is sorted. In verse add to that previous verse. For those who want the reference is from sulit unis verse 57. Historically Surat
verse 82, Allah Subhana Allah says 100 Zero Quran
and we reveal a breakdown of the Quran, man who was Shiva Warahmatullah meaning that which is a cure and mercy for the believers.
So, how can we get that
to be the case for ourselves?
whenever we give the book of Allah subhanaw taala, whatever left over we have
in mind you again, as I said in the past, and I continue to say we are very fortunate. We're the only species by the way that received this. We received Calam Allah Quran is the actual
saying, the actual words, the actual Kol of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.
It's the one thing that we have from Allah subhanaw taala we have access to from Allah subhanaw taala something that from Allah azza wa jal, one of his attributes of Hana with that.
And on top of that, we are allowed to receive it,
we are allowed to understand it, we're not allowed to use it.
We are allowed to repeat it in other it, we are allowed to do this. We have direct access to it. Each and every single one of us
and Islam we don't have an elite group that has access to this and everyone else can only come to it through them. No.
All you have to do is just receive it like it has to be transmitted to you and it's yours.
All you have to do just make will do it and hold the most have started reading it.
Obviously you need to learn how to read and properly and take advantage of those people whom Allah subhanaw taala but nonetheless, it's yours. So Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has message to you
and I and everyone else.
And the other day we were told that people are coming in, you know, they're coming to Islam.
The Muslim population, the global Muslim population has surpassed 2,000,000,002.1, almost.
Many of those who come to Islam they come through not even like a direct engagement of the actual word in its original language.
They come to it indirectly.
Through the understanding of the translation of someone's understanding of the Quran,
yet it still has great impact on them.
Low alert, I would urge you to go learn about their stories
yet those of us who have access to it, who have the opportunity to learn it, and engage it, we take it lightly, and that shouldn't be the case. So, how can we
And before I go any further, I just want to say that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah said, to the prophesied salah,
said about the people of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who understood it,
in whose tongue it was revealed, I will let me actually him and Zelner la Calcutta, UT La La him, isn't it sufficient? Isn't it enough for them that we have revealed the book to you so that it would be recited to them?
It's ALLAH SubhanA. Allah is Allah subhanaw taala has proof
either for or against humanity
For anyone who's asking for a miracle for anyone who tell them to go and engage the Quran.
Learn the Quran, study the Quran, for anyone who has doubts for anyone who has any issues, go and engage the Quran. So here are some practical steps
towards having a better relationship with a book of Allah subhanho wa taala. Number one,
Prepare yourself to engage the Quran and understand it and contemplate on it by developing positive feeling about it. And falling in love with it.
having respect for it and appreciation for it,
see, a lot of us we receive a Quran as as always, but we haven't really fully really considered the fact that we're very fortunate. This is the book of Allah subhanaw taala These are the words of Allah azza wa jal and if we truly love Allah azza wa jal if we're grateful for what Allah azza wa jal has done for us all the blessings, then we must love it, appreciated and respected.
They could remember who I some point used to fight the Quran, used to deny the Quran used to
fight the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he accepted Islam and he finally got rid of his bias and he finally allowed himself to be captured by the Quran, he he was captivated.
And he used to hug it used to hug his mother or his copy. He used to hug it and say Qalam or be killed. I want to be the Lord, the words of my Lord.
The words of my Lord.
So that's why one of the great Imams said, Men have Bala hyperkalemic
whoever loves Allah, you must then love his words.
See, if you receive a letter from someone that you really care about, not only are you going to immediately open that letter and read it, you're going to read it over and over again
only if you care about the author or whoever wrote it, or whoever sent it.
So prepare yourself and understand the value of what we have number two,
make the Quran your companion
and be a companion of the Quran.
So I will make your Quran your companion
consider even if it's you see when when we become the companions of the Quran in the month of Ramadan. We all appreciate it we all love it. We get a taste of it.
Make yourself a companion of the Quran, meaning have a daily axis, a daily engagement, a daily appointment, a daily relationship with the book of Allah Subhana Allah the Quran Wallah Hiya, Mara. I know people who do only one verse. I know people who do five minutes
and then they tell you it makes a huge difference.
It makes a huge difference.
It should be part of your daily routine somewhere on your way to work on your way back from work, when you go to bed, whatever that is. Have a daily connection with a book of Allah. One way or another.
consider not only just listening to it or reading it, but consider having even again if it's one verse, believe it even if it's just one verse. Consider studying
even if it's just Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, day one, day two, Al hamdu, Lillahi Rabbil Alameen, day three,
day four, Maliki on Monday, and so on and so forth.
You're going to have 365 verses by the end of the year.
That's a treasure.
That is a treasure that's more than sort of a dattara or more of the Aloha. I know it took him eight years to do sort of Bukhara
one, one versity half of verse,
one verse every two days, engage the mean, what does it exactly mean? And now as your ma Subhan Allah, I'm just amazed Alhamdulillah from the blessings of Allah, there are all kinds of apps, all kinds of resources and websites right now to make it easy.
How's it pronounced? How do I understand I know people who do one word, one Quranic word of de
wala hate will make a difference.
It will make a difference.
Start with the most popular the most essential Surah Al Fatiha
AYATUL kursi Khan, who Allah has pulled out of the rubble file a cloud of robinus the verses are the sutras that you read on a regular basis between now Ramadan
I would urge you to watch
for some of the most eloquent
teachers that talk about the Quran, Quranic verse short ones, just 123 minutes about the beauty of the Quran, this marvelous book, just just watch one bit, make it make it a habit on a daily basis. Something very interesting
that you'll find in the Quran, parents.
The Quran is full of wonders,
full of wonders,
watch one of these on a daily basis. Just make it you know, whoever your favorite is, I'm not gonna stand here and recommend whoever you find to be very interesting and captivating. Listen to it, even if it's in your respective language.
Listen to their amazing things.
Obviously, you always have to, you know, verify and make sure but the best you can you can get the best person the most qualified person that you can listen to listen to it, as long as my goal from it is
to have an engagement just to make you fall in love with this marvelous book.
Be persistent. Whether you do it daily, or you do it three times a week, or you do it once a week. Whatever it is, maintain that schedule with the Quran. Six last but not least, take advantage of any programming any activity, be it in person or online.
If it has to do with the book of Allah, the Quran, be amongst the first to register or sign up for it and make time for it. It is a matter we cannot expect to really be touched by the Quran. We cannot be. We cannot expect to be transformed by the Quran. We cannot expect to be healed by the Quran. If we're just going to give the Quran whatever extra time that we have whenever we feel like it.
The Quran is Aziz, this book is very noble.
Whatever you give the Quran, the Quran will give you more.
But if it's something that you're going to pay attention to just whenever or only whenever there is a loss, a tragic loss
or a funeral
for La hawla wala Quwata illa Allah may Allah Subhana Allah forgive you an eye for our sins may Allah subhanaw taala make you and those who listen and follow the vessel for they listen to a color the color of allottee welcome the surfer away from the Camino hola for Rahim.

what we're about
consider as we you know, this is a month where a lot of people remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And when I shuffled the Allah Allah and one of the fascinating things about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was his personality, his character and his o'clock
Wallah. Here's your matter the price was and there was an extraordinary human being. Yes, he was Bashar Allah azza wa jal says, you know,
well in them and abishola mythological and the prophesy Celebi himself in his own words
said in Emma Anna Bashar is a human being, but he was an extraordinary Bishop.
What made him extraordinary in addition to his own character of sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the fact that he was the first he was he was the recipient of the Quran.
It was his special relationship with the Quran
that he was the first one to receive the Quran and he was the one that transmitted the grant was.
Well in the manifesto, you highlight is revealed to me.
Allah Subhan Allah as greatest blessings on his prophets of Allah they send them once the Quran
and when she was asked about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
Yama or mother, she was asked by her students, what was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam like what was he like?
She said, I will list the Quran Quran

said Yeah, but what does that have to do with my question? I mean, he didn't say that. But I'm just
yeah, of course. For the early Can I be your calm? That was your prophet. kind of hook the whole Quran.
His character was of the Quran.
The Quran is what shaped him. So Allah, Allah He was in the Quran is what empowered him so Allah, Allah, he was in them. The Quran is what provide, you know, proof, purified, hence Allah Allah Allah us in the Quran was his greatest asset. The Quran was his greatest weapon. greatest tool. Allah subhanaw taala says Raja hit him because he hadn't kebele It was the Quran. And we have that is the miraz of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we have with the province and them left behind us, and the Prophet himself. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, talk to Phil come, I have left for you. And I told you before, that the one thing the Prophet said that we were talking about this last
