00:01:04--> 00:01:06

my respective sisters.

00:01:07--> 00:01:19

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

00:01:21--> 00:01:22

reflect on our state

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

of mind, state of heart,

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

our spiritual health,

00:01:32--> 00:01:35

we find that these were the best days of the year.

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

And here we are

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

only six months away

00:01:43--> 00:01:44


00:01:45--> 00:01:46

our beloved month of Ramadan.

00:01:49--> 00:01:56

And it used to be the tradition of our pious predecessors in the past

00:01:58--> 00:02:02

that they start talking about Ramadan, six months in advance.

00:02:03--> 00:02:13

Their tradition was six months after Ramadan. They're asking Allah subhanaw taala to accept whatever they had done the Ramadan.

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

Six months after Ramadan,

00:02:18--> 00:02:30

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

00:02:31--> 00:02:47

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

00:02:49--> 00:02:53

charging themselves preparing themselves

00:02:54--> 00:03:01

for the next Ramadan begging Allah Subhana Allah and asking Allah azza wa jal to deliver them to refer to that Ramadan.

00:03:05--> 00:03:14

But the today what I wanted to discuss wasn't necessarily that portion of it, preparing ourselves for Ramadan and gearing up for Ramadan.

00:03:15--> 00:03:22

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

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

is the Quran.

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

That's what I want to focus on. You see those who recite the Quran

00:03:34--> 00:03:39

in the month of Ramadan, the people that are most pursued in the month of Ramadan

00:03:41--> 00:04:02

now's the time when they start making deals and connections and preparations, some of them already a long time ago. But now is a 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 health. Now's the time they start doing that.

00:04:04--> 00:04:09

The half of the people that we asked to come in lead us in salah they reengage the Quran

00:04:11--> 00:04:18

six months prior to Ramadan, they start gearing up some obviously so do it little later. But now is a time where they re engaged

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

in any one of us.

00:04:23--> 00:04:33

That develops a special connection with the Quran. Even Wallahi Wallah he even if it's one verse a day I will tell you

00:04:34--> 00:04:36

that they notice the difference.

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

So what is it

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

that makes it so special?

00:04:43--> 00:04:48

And what am I asking myself starting from this day and onward?

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

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 Hannah so

00:05:01--> 00:05:05

all people, all mankind, all human beings,

00:05:07--> 00:05:10

God yet come to mirror become.

00:05:11--> 00:05:14

There has come to you among Raghava

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

a loving caring advice

00:05:20--> 00:05:25

from your Lord who cares about you who sustains you who takes care of you?

00:05:26--> 00:05:44

Who maintains your affairs, your Lord who wants what is best for you, who knows what is best for you and I know many people out there has come to you from your Lord Allah. Allah azza wa jal calls it mo ala mera be come from your Lord.

00:05:45--> 00:05:49

Notice that he didn't say May Allah from Allah or Meenal Jabbar

00:05:52--> 00:05:56

or from Allah Subhana Allah says, Mira become your Lord,

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

the one that cares for you,

00:05:59--> 00:06:02

the one that nourishes you takes care of you.

00:06:04--> 00:06:08

mirabito is a message of love and care.

00:06:09--> 00:06:11

It's a message that came

00:06:12--> 00:06:16

to ensure our success and our happiness and ultimately our salvation

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

from Allah

00:06:23--> 00:06:25

where she only Murphy sudo

00:06:26--> 00:06:36

and it's a healing in a cure for that wishes in the hearts. It came to purify your Curie cure you and it came to

00:06:38--> 00:06:45

make you a better person, a healthier person. Well, she felt really mad for sudo and only Allah azza wa jal knows what is in the sudo.

00:06:47--> 00:06:58

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.

00:07:00--> 00:07:07

And you may not realize that they're either pretending or they they themselves may not be even aware of how much they are carrying.

00:07:09--> 00:07:17

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.

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

And everyone around them envies them.

00:07:22--> 00:07:26

And then it's all of a sudden that either stress gets to them.

00:07:27--> 00:07:32

Or they may even worst case scenario is do something to themselves because they can't take it anymore.

00:07:36--> 00:07:48

So Allah subhanaw taala says there is something that I have sent you something that is very special, what she felt well enough in Sedona and Allah subhanaw taala says she felt it's a cure for everything.

00:07:52--> 00:07:58

It heals the heart, but you have to allow it access to the to your to your heart.

00:08:00--> 00:08:09

You have to allow access to your solder your heart, your chest, open your chest for it, and let it do its miracle.

00:08:12--> 00:08:15

Some miraculous book, let it do its miracle, it can heal you.

00:08:16--> 00:08:18

It can literally heal you

00:08:19--> 00:08:25

wish you've only met for sudo not only that, well who doesn't. And it's a guidance

00:08:26--> 00:08:30

for the mind, for the intellect, it opens up your eyes.

00:08:32--> 00:08:33

It opens up your ears.

00:08:35--> 00:08:36

It broadens your horizon.

00:08:38--> 00:08:41

It makes you a better thinker.

00:08:42--> 00:08:45

Well Who then is a guidance it shows you the path

00:08:47--> 00:08:48

and then on top of that

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

it is mercy from Allah subhanaw taala

00:08:52--> 00:09:00

is a source of love and compassion from Allah subhanaw taala liniment meaning for the believers. Yeah, you have nurse oh people

00:09:02--> 00:09:04

and Allah Subhana Allah addresses all people

00:09:06--> 00:09:07

but jadco

00:09:08--> 00:09:11

there has come to you Mira become from your Lord

00:09:13--> 00:09:27

Kumar, were able to mirror become there has come to you this loving advice from your Lord when she found one and a cure and healing. Well who then guidance what, then what meaning to those who believe

00:09:28--> 00:09:38

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.

00:09:39--> 00:09:48

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.

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

We finally make time for it.

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

We finally come back to it.

00:10:01--> 00:10:05

And the Quran does its work on us, and we're better individuals.

00:10:08--> 00:10:19

And Allah subhanho With analysis is certainly slop in verse 82. That previous verse for those who want the reference is from surah Tunis verse 57. Historical is rock

00:10:22--> 00:10:22


00:10:24--> 00:10:26

Surah 17

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

verse 82, Allah Subhana Allah says 100 Zero Quran

00:10:33--> 00:10:42

and we reveal bring down of the Quran, man who was Shiva Warahmatullah meaning that which is a cure and mercy for the believers.

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

So, how can we get that

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

to be the case for ourselves?

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

You see,

00:10:55--> 00:10:59

whenever we give the book of ALLAH SubhanA, Allah whatever left over we have

00:11:00--> 00:11:10

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

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

saying, the actual words, the actual whole of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.

00:11:21--> 00:11:31

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.

00:11:33--> 00:11:36

And on top of that, we are allowed to receive it,

00:11:37--> 00:11:42

we are allowed to understand it, we are allowed to use it,

00:11:43--> 00:11:54

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.

00:11:55--> 00:12:03

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.

00:12:05--> 00:12:09

All you have to do is just receive it like it has to be transmitted to you and it's yours.

00:12:13--> 00:12:16

All you have to do just make will do it and hold the most have started reading it.

00:12:20--> 00:12:30

Obviously you need to learn how to read it 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,

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

and I and everyone else.

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

The other day, we were told that people are coming in, you know, they're coming to Islam.

00:12:43--> 00:12:48

The Muslim population, the global Muslim population has surpassed 2,000,000,002.1, almost

00:12:51--> 00:13:01

many of those who come to Islam they come through not even like a direct engagement of the actual word in its original language.

00:13:03--> 00:13:09

They come to its indirectly through the understanding of the translation of someone's understanding of the Quran.

00:13:11--> 00:13:14

Yet it still has great impact on them.

00:13:15--> 00:13:19

Low alert, I would urge you to go learn about their stories.

00:13:23--> 00:13:34

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

00:13:36--> 00:13:36

do this?

00:13:39--> 00:13:51

And before I go any further, I wish I just want to say that Allah Subhana Allah Allah said to the prophesy seldom said about the people of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who understood it,

00:13:52--> 00:14:06

and whose tongue it was revealed? I will let me actually him and Zelda alagille kita ut La La him isn't sufficient? Isn't it enough for them that we have revealed a book to you so that it would be recited to them?

00:14:09--> 00:14:13

It's Allah subhanaw taala. It's Allah subhanaw taala has proof

00:14:15--> 00:14:17

either for or against humanity

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

is enough.

00:14:20--> 00:14:25

For anyone who's asking for a miracle for anyone who tell them to go and engage the Quran.

00:14:26--> 00:14:35

Learn the Quran and 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

00:14:38--> 00:14:42

towards having a better relationship with the book of Allah subhanaw taala. Number one,

00:14:44--> 00:14:45

prepare yourself.

00:14:47--> 00:14:58

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.

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

And by

00:15:03--> 00:15:06

having respect for it and appreciation for it.

00:15:07--> 00:15:30

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, if we truly love Allah azza wa jal if we are grateful for what Allah azza wa jal has done for us all the blessings, then we must love it, appreciated and respected.

00:15:32--> 00:15:38

Record Emma who is some point used to fight the Quran, used to deny the Quran used to

00:15:40--> 00:15:52

fight the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam 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.

00:15:53--> 00:16:02

And he used to hug it used to hug his mother or his copy. He used to hug it and say can I be Can I want to be the Lord, the words of my Lord,

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

the words of my Lord.

00:16:07--> 00:16:19

So that's why one of the great Imam said men have Bangla have baccala whoever loves Allah, you must then love his words.

00:16:21--> 00:16:28

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.

00:16:32--> 00:16:37

Only if you care about the author or whoever wrote it, or whoever sent it.

00:16:39--> 00:16:43

So prepare yourself and understand the value of what we have. Number two,

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

make the Quran your companion

00:16:47--> 00:16:49

and be a companion of the Quran.

00:16:50--> 00:16:53

Sahaba make your Quran your companion

00:16:55--> 00:17:04

consider even if it's easy 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.

00:17:06--> 00:17:23

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, Allah here gemera I know people who do only one verse, I know people who do five minutes

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

and then they tell you it makes a huge difference.

00:17:29--> 00:17:31

makes a huge difference.

00:17:32--> 00:17:46

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.

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

Number three,

00:17:52--> 00:18:06

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 its meanings.

00:18:07--> 00:18:14

Even if it's just Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, day one, day two, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen, day three,

00:18:16--> 00:18:19

day four, Maliki on Monday, and so on and so forth.

00:18:20--> 00:18:23

You're gonna have 365 verses by the end of the year.

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

That's a treasure.

00:18:26--> 00:18:33

That is a treasure that's more than sort of a dattara I'm one of the Allahu Anhu it took him eight years to do. So Takara

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

one, one versity. Half of us

00:18:38--> 00:18:53

one verse every two days, engage the mean, what does it exactly mean? And now as your massive hallelujah, I'm just amazed Alhamdulillah from the blessings of Allah. There are all kinds of ABS, all kinds of resources and websites right now to make it easy.

00:18:54--> 00:19:00

How's it pronounced? How do I understand? I know people who do one word, one Quranic word a day

00:19:01--> 00:19:03

Wallah, it will make a difference.

00:19:05--> 00:19:06

It will make a difference.

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

Start with the most popular the most essential Surah Al Fatiha

00:19:14--> 00:19:22

AYATUL kursi, Hula, hula, Hula, hula Robin, Robin nurse. The verses are the sutras that you read on a regular basis between our Ramadan

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

number four

00:19:30--> 00:19:33

I would urge you to watch

00:19:35--> 00:19:36

short videos

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

for some of the most eloquent

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

interpreters or

00:19:44--> 00:19:58

teachers that talk about the Quran, Quranic verse short ones, just one to three 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

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

that you

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

To find the Quran, parents

00:20:03--> 00:20:06

the Quran is full of wonders

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

full of wonders,

00:20:10--> 00:20:20

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.

00:20:22--> 00:20:23

There are amazing things.

00:20:24--> 00:20:34

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

00:20:35--> 00:20:40

to have an engagement just to make you fall in love with this marvelous book.

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

Number five,

00:20:46--> 00:20:48

maintain consistency.

00:20:50--> 00:21:06

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 scheduled with the Quran. Six last but not least, take advantage of any programming any activity, be it in person or online.

00:21:08--> 00:21:32

If it has to do with the book of Allah, the Quran, be amongst the first register or sign up for it and make time for it. As 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.

00:21:36--> 00:21:40

The Quran is Aziz, this book is very noble.

00:21:42--> 00:21:43


00:21:45--> 00:21:48

Whatever you give the Quran, the Quran will give you more.

00:21:49--> 00:21:56

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

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

or a funeral

00:22:00--> 00:22:11

for La hawla wala Quwata illa Allah may Allah subhanaw taala forgive you an eye for our sins may Allah subhanaw taala make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to a cola cola supplement body Welcome

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

to La Quinta Hall of Fame.

00:22:31--> 00:22:37

hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Abadi Ladino SAPA What about

00:22:39--> 00:22:51

consider as we you know, this is the month where a lot of people remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and when I shuffled the Allah Anna and one of the fascinating things about the Prophet sallallahu it was it was his personality, his character and his o'clock

00:22:53--> 00:22:59

Wallah he is your man at the promise was and it was an extraordinary human being. Yes, he was Bashar Allah azza wa jal says, you know,

00:23:00--> 00:23:09

well, in nama inhibition will miss LUCAM and the Prophet SAW Selim himself, in his own words, said in Mr. Bashar, I am a human being, but he was an extraordinary measure.

00:23:10--> 00:23:19

What made him extraordinary in addition to his own character, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the fact that he was the first he was he was the recipient of the Quran.

00:23:22--> 00:23:24
