Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Everybody, I've written out the idea of Ramadan most of it anyway, in this way because I wanted to highlight something about how it's organized. I'm going to go through the translation real quick. If you don't know Arabic, I don't need you to feel bad even if you feel a little bit bad, I'm okay with that.
The month of Ramadan is the one in which the Quran was revealed. It's the first thing it's guidance for humanity's clear proofs from within the guidance and it's the separation alpha, then whoever witnesses the month among you should fast and whoever six should make it up in other days, okay, allowance is for you, he doesn't want difficulty for you. So you complete the count, so that you declare less greatness in the way that he guided you, and so that you become grateful. So I'm going to highlight something that's pretty cool about the structure of this ayah and that is the month of Ramadan is the one in which the Quran was revealed. And of course, for which we should be ultimately
grateful, the greatest blessing of Allah the Quran was given in this month, the greatest guidance to humanity was given in this month for all things that we can be grateful to Allah for. That is the greatest act of love, love, care and mercy of the human element Quran. So the conclusion corresponds to the introduction. There were three descriptions of the Quran as in its role in guiding us and they were who the linas verbena demeanor. alhuda well for time guidance for people proof from within the guidance and separation between truth and falsehood. And by the end, Allah says, what he took up below Lucha lama haidakhan. So you declare a lot of greatness based on how he guided you. This was
an elaborate description of his guidance. And here, he says, and I gave you that description, so that you now declare his greatness in accordance with his, his guidance. So guidance and guidance, repeat themselves in the beginning. And in the end, he says, Then, whoever witnesses the month among you should fast and whoever can't make it up other days, meaning complete the count. And so here he says, so that you may complete the count.
So that you may complete the count, how do you complete the count fast the entire month, make it up another day. So this has been briefly completed here, so that you may complete the count the middle, Allah says he wants ease for you. And he doesn't want difficulty for you. That's the center of the ayah he wants is for you and not difficulty. So in that sense, the is actually a literary symmetry. From the beginning to the end the the the conclusion corresponds, although the introduction corresponds to the conclusion. The second item guidance corresponds to declaring a less greatness based on guidance. The third item whoever fasts should meet, you know, complete the count, so that
you complete the count that correspond to one another. And of course, he wants ease and difficulty correspond to one another barakallahu li walakum. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
