00:01:40--> 00:01:45

The holy month of Ramadan has a very special relationship with

00:01:46--> 00:01:49

revelation, divine revelation.

00:01:51--> 00:01:56

We learn from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

many of the holy books

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

that were divinely revealed by Allah, to his noble messengers, peace be upon them all. We're actually revealed in the month of Ramadan

00:02:11--> 00:02:11

and

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

recorded by Mr.

00:02:15--> 00:02:19

Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:02:21--> 00:02:29

that, on the first night of Rama, ROM, the scriptures that were given to the Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam are revealed.

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

And on the six third Amazon

00:02:35--> 00:02:38

was revealed to see that I'm sorry, he said atossa.

00:02:39--> 00:02:53

And on the 13th of Ramadan, in G, that was given to the Prophet Isa and he said that was around was also revealed. And on the 24th of Ramadan, the Holy Quran was revealed.

00:02:56--> 00:03:23

The Saudis shows us very clearly the special relationship that exists between the month of Ramadan and divine revelation beat the scriptures that were given to the Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam ala offseason, a moussaka. Salatu was salam, all the engineering, give him see them, he saw the history that was around, oh, the book chosen for as the final revelation of the Holy Quran.

00:03:24--> 00:03:41

Indeed, in the Quran itself. last panel hautala mentions the month of Ramadan only once in the entire program. And that is an aversive sort of conduct. In which Allah subhanho wa Taala says as cited in the beginning, shadow from a woman lady

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

with a nurse

00:03:48--> 00:03:53

Leslie that month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed

00:03:55--> 00:04:05

as a means of guidance for mankind, and as clear proofs and evidences of guidance, and have a distinguisher.

00:04:07--> 00:04:22

If we ponder and reflect over this verse briefly, we realize that the entire law has only mentioned a month of Ramadan by name once, and that is in this verse, and also ascribes

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

its best nature and its greatness to the Holy Spirit. So in order to prove in order to show and exemplify the blessed and great nature of Rama ROM, Allah says Shalom, a woman the opposite of evil, that month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed. This we learn by inference from this verse, but the month of Ramadan actually derives much of its blessing and its greatness, not only from the obligation of fasting during stays, but importantly from the holy war on itself.

00:05:00--> 00:05:30

program one has a very special relationship with the holy program. And that is why in that famous long Hadith of the sermon delivered by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the last day of shutdown, as narrated by see, you're gonna see the normal fallacy of the logline, and recorded by a number of authors in their books, including nazima infancy, as part of that sermon, the prophets dilemma it seldom says, yeah.

00:05:35--> 00:05:39

Official jargon No, see, I'm in a hurry for you. What

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

a great month has come upon you.

00:05:45--> 00:06:00

A very blessed month, a month in which there is one night which is better than 1000 likes, and has made the fasting of its days and obligation upon you. And that has made the standing before Allah, are you with the recitation of the Quran

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

I'm optional act for you as similar for you.

00:06:06--> 00:06:29

So during the day, Allah has prescribed fasting for us in the month of Ramadan, and during the night, and also during the data. Importantly, during the night, Allah has prescribed the act of worship of the recitation of the Holy Quran for us, because of this very deep nature, deep relationship, and this intricate and inspiring relationship between the month of Ramadan and the holy quarter.

00:06:31--> 00:06:46

Ready, the sermon also mentioned the Knights of pepper, but this is a month in which that is one night which is better than 1000 months. And ally himself says that in sort of other essays in the novel field, either to the other,

00:06:47--> 00:06:48

the other

00:06:50--> 00:07:24

alpha, that indeed we have revealed in the likes of other and what do you know of the likes of it as one might, which is better than 1000 months, and then the amount of sugar, which is so unique in the month of Ramadan, and which lends much of the greatness of Him alone to the month. This night itself is best because Allah revealed the holy book in this. And before I proceed, I just like to clarify one point, which may be a source of misunderstanding for some people.

00:07:25--> 00:07:34

Last round of what I say is in various verses of the Koran, but Allah has revealed the Holy Quran in the month of Ramadan. And in some verses specifically,

00:07:35--> 00:07:43

the verse which I mentioned in the beginning, which I began commenting on briefly, is the one of sort of nakara in which Bill Maher says Shahada, Ramadan and levy Zilla

00:07:44--> 00:07:51

quarterly nursery not in Minnesota for that month of Ramadan in which the Holy Quran was revealed

00:07:52--> 00:08:00

as a means of guidance and as clear proofs and evidences for mankind. Now, period Allah says in general that was revealed in the month of Ramadan,

00:08:02--> 00:08:04

which also resigned to the moment earlier, I was

00:08:05--> 00:08:10

feeling a little further indeed we have revealed in the night of

00:08:11--> 00:08:18

the beginning of Sudoku bohan, I was gonna say is harming well being in the medical field.

00:08:20--> 00:08:38

Having the clear book, indeed we have revealed this book in a very blessed night. So in reverse, Allah says, Allah has revealed in the month of Ramadan in general, and in these two verses, Allah says, Allah has revealed in a blessed night, Allah has revealed in the nights of

00:08:39--> 00:09:22

reps we know, that was revealed gradually in portions over a period of 23 years. And the 23 years of Revelation, were not confined to the month of Ramadan in these respective years, rather, was revealed on all occasions, apps many different times in many different places over the month of Ramadan. So how are we to understand the revelation of the Holy Quran in the month of Ramadan, specifically, and in the month in the nights of edited specifically, and reconcile that with the knowledge and understanding that we have that was revealed gradually over a lengthy period of two to three years. It's very simple.

00:09:23--> 00:09:31

First of all, the last panel with eila had already decreed the firm and the firm was protected in the

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

American waffles,

00:09:35--> 00:09:37

protected tablet and the seventh heaven.

00:09:39--> 00:09:42

This offseason, the Holy Koran, ne

00:09:44--> 00:09:48

ne This is a great and majestic book.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

last panel with IRA says that this is protected in the 11 muscles in the protected tablet. So the iron was already present and it's complete entire firm

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

In the protected tablet, when Allah declared the intention of revealing the arm, to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam in preparation for that revelation, the Holy Quran was brought down by the angels, the guardian angels, from the seventh heaven to the nearest Heaven, in preparation for its ultimate revelation to the holy messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's this revelation from the protected tablets in the seventh heaven, to the lowest Heaven, that is being referred to in the beginning of sort of other and in the beginning of sort of the harm in which last age respectively in mountains and Melfi little, indeed, We have revealed in the night. And in sort of, in our field

00:10:45--> 00:11:13

editor, mubaraka. Indeed, We have revealed the Book in a blessed night. So this is a revelation that is being referred to, in the night of Everest, specifically, in one go in one night, the whole room was transferred by The Guardian Angels from the protected tablets in the seventh heaven, to the lowest heaven in preparation for its revelation, total sort of law, some of them are hiding or some of them. This is a revelation that has been referred to in the likes of God. And

00:11:15--> 00:12:00

verse of silica bacara, speaks of being revealed in the month of Ramadan. It refers to both this revelation as the Knights of power from the seventh heaven, from the protected tablet to the nearest heaven. And it also refers to the fact that the holy what the first verses were revealed, first to the messenger, some of the love it was send them again in the month of Ramadan, as a prophet sallallahu Sallam himself says, in the, in the form of Hadith that I quoted from the Muslim, humble and sobre la here they are, has actually quoted in aeration, in which it's clearly stated that God is Salatu was salam, when he first visited the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and

00:12:00--> 00:12:07

delivered the first verses of the Holy Quran to him of sort of, in which he says, this will become the the HELOC. So

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

the HELOC HELOC in Santa Ana.

00:12:13--> 00:12:57

These first verses were revealed to the Prophet similar level it was in the month of Ramadan. So this is a revelation from the Knights of Paris specifically in generally in the month of Ramadan that has been referred to in these verses of the arm. Once this had been accomplished, then the revelation continued throughout the 23 year period that we know of, at various times in various locations to the messengers alarm it wasn't enough. So going back to what I was saying earlier, the arm has a very special relationship with the month of Ramadan. And this is why we have been encouraged to recognize this and increase our recitation our dilemma of the arm and not just the

00:12:57--> 00:13:07

recitation, but also its understanding and reflection upon the verses of the Quran. And ultimately the application of these verses in our practical lives.

00:13:09--> 00:13:50

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself on stage and stated the summer of fasting during the day of praying Salah with a holy cow during the night. And in fact, the practice of reciting the Quran as much as possible, specifically in the month of Ramadan, rather than any other month was again a practice initiated by the Holy messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and also by the arcane Angel Gabriel le hisako. Sara is related by both Manmohan Singh as well as other authors in their books of Hadith. It is related from saving Abdullah abass probably a lot. But he said kind of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam

00:13:52--> 00:13:53

what kind of

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

Fira Milan Hey, Neil capace breed what kind of

00:13:59--> 00:14:00

Ramadan

00:14:04--> 00:14:06

he was selling them a driven neener

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

masala powder in my bathroom.

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

So, so you don't have to run our bus of the 11 Hama season this hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most generous of all people in giving in, in giving good.

00:14:27--> 00:14:51

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was more current was kinder and more generous than ever. In the month of Ramadan. When de la Salatu was Salam would meet with him. And Djibouti Ronnie who salatu salam would meet with him every night of Ramadan for your word is super important. And gibreel Allah his route was Salam would review the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

This one the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would meet Judy Serato Sarah, he would become the most generous

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

Of all people in the giving of God, and he would become even more generous than the free growing released wind. Now a few things we can learn from this hadith First of all, Djibouti, over his Salatu was Salam would meet daily with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, especially in the month of Ramadan.

00:15:20--> 00:15:54

They would rehearse the Koran, and the meaning of rehearsing the Koran here is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite one portion of the beat and he said, Do you believe Serato Sam would listen. And then gibreel Allah He Serato Serrano, besides one portion of the same portion of the Quran, to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Noble Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would listen attentively, and in this way, in each would read to the river and listen to the same portion of the arm on a daily basis in the month of Ramadan.

00:15:55--> 00:16:37

Now, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would milk so regularly, the chubby legs rattles around, he will be so enlightened, so happy, so inspired, that generous though he was, and being the most generous of all mankind. And these occasions, he was even more generous than anyone could imagine. And only parable that ignite bustle the love on whom I could strike and the only example he could give in comparison to make was that the prophets of the love it was seldom after encountering Jubilee, his salatu salam, and having shared the company, Angel it can enlightened company of jovita Lee Serato ceram in the month of Ramadan having shared the Holy Quran with him, the Prophet

00:16:37--> 00:17:18

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would become even more generous than he ever was more generous than the free blowing, unreleased wind. The wind when it blows, affects everyone with good and the wind when it's once promote when it blows when it's unrestricted. When it's uninhibited when it's not stopped in any way, then this wind affects everyone with good free, unreleased unrestricted wind, the province of Milan ism was described as being more generous than the Swift. So this practice the sooner of reciting the hold on as excessively as possible in the month of Ramadan. This was a practice initiated and stated no by none other than the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, Alayhi,

00:17:18--> 00:17:42

wasallam and gibellini. His setup was that and this is why we have what are we at night where the Holy Quran is completed. And in this manner, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would complete one for every room around specifically with debris. And he said that was around and in the penultimate year of his life, the final year of his life before he passed away. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:17:43--> 00:18:24

finding his salatu salam, and he was destined, but he would not meet again, with juvenility, his salatu wa Salaam in the month of Ramadan, the following year, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just as he did actigraph for 20 days, in that final year. Similarly, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also completed two recitations of the job really circles around rather than the one that you would normally do. In another heavy the Prophet sallallahu wasallam has again described this relationship between the home and between fasting and the month of Ramadan, and a hadith related by many authors, including the humble and his Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu. wasallam says,

00:18:25--> 00:18:28

end the day of judgment, a serum

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

for all the serum,

00:18:34--> 00:18:38

not to wash our fish fish, a 50 fee will

00:18:39--> 00:19:28

be going up to an unknown if Elaine Fisher for any fee, official found a suit of law and the law it says that on the day of reckoning, both fast, the fast and the holy, they will intercede on behalf of a servant before Allah. But first we'll say Allah, I prevented him from his food, drink and other desires during the day, therefore, accept my intercession on his behalf. And that will only say Allah at night, I prevented him from resting and sleeping through the dilemma through my pillow and my recitation. Therefore, Allah grants me in session on his behalf and accepts my intercession on a sort of loss of the law. My legal system said, Please just found both in session of the arm as well

00:19:28--> 00:19:33

as the first will be accepted by law on behalf of this fasting, reciting person.

00:19:34--> 00:19:59

So again, we learn of the unique relationship between the holy month of Ramadan fasting, and the poor. And indeed, we have been encouraged to recite as much as possible throughout the year from the last holy book, not just the recitation but also reflection and pondering of its verses, but more so in Ramadan than any other time of the year. And this was also the practice of many of our earliest scholars and leaders of this. honor that

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

countless examples of how the Sahaba of the loved one and those who followed them would recite as much as possible. It's related from Imam,

00:20:10--> 00:20:50

Abu hanifa theory that he would complete 60 complete recitations in the month of Ramadan. It is also related to the number How do you refer to La la, according to one nation who would complete 40 complete recitals of the holy month of Ramadan, and according to another generation, who would complete 60. So these are just two examples. One of them are Makati, la honey, one of the mandible hanifa de la la. And there are other similar examples. Even in this day and age and hamdulillah. There are many servants of Allah, both men and women who follow the Samoan example, and who devote their time to the recitation of the Holy Quran as much as possible in this blessed month, because of

00:20:50--> 00:21:22

its unique nature, we should strive to become, we should strive to become one of these people who flashed during the day as part of their good deeds and activity, not only during the day, but also at night. Besides as much as possible. There are many virtues and blessings of reciting the poem, or we leave these virtues and blessings, address, address them on another occasion, insha Allah. But for now, I just wanted to focus and concentrate on this unique relationship between the month of Ramadan and the

00:21:24--> 00:22:07

arm. And one of the reasons for this unique relationship is that Allah has created us from the dust of the earth. And that means that our nourishment and sustenance must also come from the gist of the earth, our food, our drink, which we derived from crops, and vegetation, and even water all come from the earth, but it was created our, our soul from from the heavens, and was created our spirit from a divine origin. And therefore our spirit is celestial. Its heavenly. And it comes from an origin and a source, other than the body and the flesh of the body that we carry. Therefore, the nourishment of the Spirit must also come from a divine celestial source. And then we have it for the

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

body, and fresh, that are that arise from the earth. And nourishment also comes from the earth before the the spirit, which is celestial and heavenly and divine in its origin. The nourishment also comes from the heavens, and that nourishment further from the spirit, especially in the month of Ramadan is the Holy Quran.

00:22:27--> 00:23:11

So let's recognize a special relationship between the Koran fasting and the holy month of Ramadan, as Allah Himself as described in the Koran as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has described in many hobbies, and recognizing this relationship, let's increase our striving during the month, and increase our within our station of the arm, and not just the recitation, but also that is trying to increase the time that we devote to being able to understand the meaning and the message of the of what Allah is actually saying to us. Because this will allow us to understand what is required of us and how we should live as Muslims and act upon the earnings entirety during this month, and not just

00:23:11--> 00:23:49

partially and selectively. I pray that Allah Subhana horadada grants us all the dolphy and divinely inspires us to make the most of this month of Ramadan. And I pray that Allah grant us all the bofi to understand what has been said and to act on it, and to increase our power and our understanding our reputation and our pondering and reflecting over the verses of the Holy Quran. Allah enables us not just to understand but to implement what we learn, may Allah grant us the trophy, or some of the law or send them up to he will solely be you know, Mohammed. He was sloppy here, drain

00:23:54--> 00:23:55

and then
