Ramadan is without doubt the month of the Quran inshallah in this section reminded me which is just for five minutes, I want to hopefully go through the month of Ramadan just highlighting some of the some of the treasures if you like from the Quran as to wireless panatela has brought our attention to mentioning the verses of the Quran Why has he named the chapters in a certain way the chapters in the Quran are called sewer and they are given a specific name and that name is not

00:00:37--> 00:01:36

if you'd like is not just a random name, Allah Subhana Allah has given that name so that people can actually consider the implications of the name and it is a big task to do but inshallah we'll see how much we can achieve in this month of Ramadan and without doubt the most important chapter in the Quran is Surah Al Fatiha and salted Fatiha has a number of names. Amongst the names is Surah Al Hamd. It's also called as shafia is also called omo Bran is also called Uncle anilao vm and some durations and almal keytab. So it has many names and we know that it's called fat you have for obvious reasons it is it opens up the book. The Horan is the first chapter there it is the opening

00:01:36--> 00:02:30

of our Salah, but it's also called a shafia because it is a surah which has power in terms of his rokeya abilities and this was something that was practiced by the sahab and the prophesize lm, a firm this so that was known as an shafia also it is the greatest surah in the Quran. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala made it if you like an important part it's it's a pillar of the Salah you know you have to read it in your Salah for Salah to be valid. And it's also called the seven often repeated sore said that l metheny which Allah again mentions in the Quran. So these are the some of the names have sort of fight about what is important as well is that in fact, itself and this is

00:02:30--> 00:02:42

probably one of the keys, why it's called that Fatiha is that it's not just the opens the Quran, and he opens the Salah, but actually there are meanings within Al Fatiha, which are very

00:02:43--> 00:03:30

open, pivotal in understanding a person's relationship, a person's relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala because even though they are short, seven short verses, but they actually put together the whole principles of how a person should understand this life, understand who our law is, understand the person's relationship with the law and you think about the verse, er cannot do what yakka nestene which is a very important opening in a relationship between us because it's it's defining you as an individual your relationship, what is your relationship with Allah? And what is a large relationship with you? Well, a lot your relationship to Allah is that you have to worship Him. So

00:03:30--> 00:04:03

you have to have that a bad and a bad in its general terms. So everything is focused to Allah. And while we're in Romans one, this becomes much more highlighted because we should be thinking of everything that we're doing, you know, you're fasting. So how are you doing the fasting and cm which you're not doing anything? I mean, in reality, you're abstaining on you. But you are in an act of a bad as long as you are abstaining. So all the time your meter for a band is ongoing, and in return Allah subhanaw taala repays you back

00:04:04--> 00:04:29

by giving you the other aspect of this verse which is an a stallion that means Allah is the one who will give you the help you seek a help him He will give you the help. So you can see the key in understanding and fighting and that's why I'm in five minutes is not enough to even mention a few letters from Al Fatiha, but in terms of understanding the meanings of the word Alhamdulillah tell him the praise of praising Allah surah tell

00:04:31--> 00:04:38
