00:01:14--> 00:01:16

respect to listeners sort of Mardi Gras

00:01:21--> 00:01:26

This is our final gathering before the month of Ramadan.

00:01:29--> 00:01:30

Insha Allah

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

subject to the sighting of the moon

00:01:37--> 00:01:39

we should be reciting

00:01:41--> 00:01:45

the Holy Quran and listening to it in that are we

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

in just a week's time

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

there is so much that can be said about the month of Ramadan.

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

Today I'll share a few thoughts with you

00:02:07--> 00:02:08


00:02:10--> 00:02:11

Ramadan and the

00:02:12--> 00:02:17

relationship between the Holy Prophet and the month of Ramadan.

00:02:21--> 00:02:27

In the whole Quran, Allah only mentions the word Ramadan once in sort of the Baccarat

00:02:31--> 00:02:33

and the vs shout Ramadan and Lily

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

kodaly na Silva unity middle Hoda will for

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

a lot size that month of Ramadan

00:02:44--> 00:02:47

in which the Koran was revealed

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

as a guidance for America

00:02:51--> 00:02:56

and as clear proofs, of guidance and of distinction.

00:03:01--> 00:03:04

This suggests that

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

a bomb draws this greatness

00:03:11--> 00:03:17

and much of its virtue, from the fact that the Quran was revealed there in

00:03:19--> 00:03:27

the revelation of the noble or an in the month of Ramadan lens that virtue and greatness.

00:03:28--> 00:03:31

Ramadan is important because of later

00:03:37--> 00:03:37

and neither

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

is the night in which Allah revealed.

00:03:44--> 00:04:00

There are a number of other verses which speak of the same event. In this verse, Allah mentions that in general Shabbat Ramadan and living in zelophehad that month of Ramadan in which the plan was revealed, no notes or time specified.

00:04:01--> 00:04:18

In sort of the harm loss plan or hoarder Allah mentions it as being one particular man's again without identifying it. Allah says how many woke it up and we'll be in Santa Fe later Timo Baraka in

00:04:19--> 00:04:26

Hamming by the clear book, verily We have revealed it meaning this book in a blessed man.

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

Surely we are Warner's.

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

And then in sort of

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

Allah specifies this blessing.

00:04:37--> 00:04:45

And he says in man's a man will feel a little warmer a little later to other women Alicia,

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

been condemned around here. In such a law says, indeed we revealed its meaning the book The noble

00:05:01--> 00:05:02

In the nights of bug,

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

and what do you know

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

or what or what will inform you

00:05:10--> 00:05:12

of what later to other is

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

the nights of

00:05:18--> 00:05:23

such that it is better than 1000 months.

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

The angels descend they're in

00:05:28--> 00:05:31

and even the spirits meaning debris raised

00:05:34--> 00:05:41

the angels descend in the smacked with an Andrew breed and the spirit by the command of their law

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

with each decree

00:05:50--> 00:05:51

it says peace.

00:05:54--> 00:05:57

This is till the break of dawn.

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

So that's the sort of about later to look at.

00:06:03--> 00:06:08

So in one verse, Allah mentions in general that the Quran was revealed in the month of Ramadan.

00:06:10--> 00:06:21

In another verse in LA, narrows it down to one night, one blessed night but again, we it's not identified, and then in this sort of law identifies that one blessed night has been laid out.

00:06:23--> 00:06:35

Now we know that that one was revealed gradually over a period of approximately 23 years. So what's the meaning of the Koran being revealed in one man, and specifically in the month of Ramadan,

00:06:36--> 00:06:40

the meaning of the revelation of the Quran in one man is

00:06:42--> 00:06:56

I'm delighted markbass of the alarm Kumar provided the sexual nation that the Quran was revealed in its entirety, from the low muffles the protected tablets to the

00:06:59--> 00:07:48

lowest heaven in preparation for its gradual revelation, sort of sort of Allah sallallahu wasallam. I've explained all of this in some detail in the deceit of sort of, so I won't repeat myself here. But this is the meaning. The Quran was revealed in one night, meaning the whole from a local muffles the protected tablet to the lowest heaven. And from there, it was gradually revealed to the prophets of the law. Some of them this is what's being referred to in all three verses of the Quran, where Allah speaks of it being revealed in later to the Father, in a blessed night and in the month of Ramadan. But there's also one more significance of the words Ramadan, in which God has revealed, not

00:07:48--> 00:08:03

only was revealed in its entirety from in the month of Ramadan from the highest heaven to the lowest heaven, but the very first words of the Holy Quran, were also revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the month of Ramadan.

00:08:05--> 00:08:39

And according to one narration, by even a sad Lucha de with his chain, he says that the Quran was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I in the beginning versus Angelina. Listen, I'm first descended with these verses of sort of develop and the holy Koran in the month of Ramadan on the 17th date on the 17th of Ramadan, which coincidentally, was also the date of but many years later. So

00:08:41--> 00:08:53

not only was the Quran revealed in its entirety from the highest heaven to the lowest heaven in the month of Ramadan, the beginning of its revelation total salt Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also began in Ramadan.

00:08:55--> 00:09:06

So there is a very deep connection between the holy grail and Rama bond. In fact, one could suggest, as is if we can infer from that verse.

00:09:07--> 00:09:18

That Rama bond owes much of its virtue and greatness to the Quran itself. That's why the wording is that month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed.

00:09:20--> 00:09:24

After all, the Quran is the color and the speech of Allah.

00:09:26--> 00:09:32

So what is its connection with the month of Ramadan? And how should we honor?

00:09:35--> 00:09:39

First of all, we should realize that the month of Ramadan is not

00:09:41--> 00:09:43

about feasting. It's about fasting.

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

It's not the festival.

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

The festival is a day of eat.

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

But the month that proceeds the day of eat is not a month. It's not a festival. It's not a month of feasting and festivities

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

rather it's a month of fasting of privations of sacrifice of devotion, and of worship to our last panel.

00:10:12--> 00:10:12

This is why

00:10:13--> 00:10:26

some of the law legal systems, and his worship increased in the month of shadow and reached its climax in the month of Ramadan. And as the month of Ramadan continued,

00:10:28--> 00:10:35

the greater the intensity of the rebirth of Rasulullah sallallahu was

00:10:37--> 00:10:46

as a whole different atmosphere in the month of Ramadan. And it's not one of festivity or feasting, rather, it's one of sacrifice and fasting.

00:10:48--> 00:10:52

But apart from fasting, Ramadan is also the month of the

00:10:53--> 00:11:09

during the day, Allah has made fasting obligatory for the believers. But during the man's law, the law legal system has made the recitation of the Holy Quran, a sinner for his followers.

00:11:12--> 00:11:13

And that's why

00:11:15--> 00:11:22

in 100 years later by even Jose ma de la jolla late in his, although he himself says if the

00:11:24--> 00:11:57

narration is authentic and other orlimar have question, well, the automatic lever had to be weak. In any case, the Hadeeth is that in the final day of Siobhan, some man will first it'll be a law one relates. He says, Have you been out of sort of law, here's the law, it will send them to a young woman Siobhan for Paula yohannes. But overlooking Sharon avintia mobarak. Shall we revealed a little Hiraman alpha janela who say I'm in a hurry for Eva, what gamma lady heats up the

00:11:58--> 00:12:07

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressed us and delivered as a sermon delivered a sermon says, On the final day of Shabbat, in which you said, Oh people,

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

a great month has dawned upon me.

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

A blessed month,

00:12:15--> 00:12:19

a month in which there is one man, which is better than 1000.

00:12:22--> 00:12:27

Law has made the fasting of the days of this month an obligation upon me.

00:12:29--> 00:12:32

And he has also made the vigil and the standing

00:12:34--> 00:12:35

in prayer

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

during the nights of this month, an act of virtue for you.

00:12:43--> 00:13:01

Again, in this heavy, there's that connection during the day that it's fasting. And during the night. It's standing in vigil before last panel, standing in it standing in prayer before law with busy with the dilemma and the recitation of the Holy Quran.

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

And this has been the practice of the soul the loss of the law legal system, and then also how about the law. In fact, the whole matter today, and this is what I wish to speak on

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

the need and the virtue of

00:13:24--> 00:13:28

establishing a relationship with the Holy Quran,

00:13:29--> 00:13:30

especially in the month of Ramadan,

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

more than any other month.

00:13:34--> 00:13:46

Now, why is that such a connection between Ramadan and what we know of fasting, but what's the significance of the arm specifically in the month of Ramadan?

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

First of all,

00:13:50--> 00:13:52

it's been a tradition not just in Islam.

00:13:53--> 00:13:57

But even with the profits before the sort of loss of the love it was

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

that they had a very special connection with Allah in the month of Ramadan.

00:14:06--> 00:14:09

The holy scriptures were revealed in the month of Ramadan not just

00:14:10--> 00:14:11

that's why in the

00:14:13--> 00:14:21

relationship by man I had to learn theory in his in his Muslim is related that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

was revealed in the month of Ramadan.

00:14:30--> 00:14:40

But along with the poor and before in fact, the words of that Eva, that the scriptures that Ibrahim alayhis salaam were revealed in the month of Ramadan.

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

The Torah was revealed in the month of Ramadan. And the Injeel was revealed in this month of Ramadan. And the Quran was also revealed in the month of Ramadan. So he a lot he mentions four great prophets, the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam, the Prophet Musa alayhis salaam

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

Prophet Isa and Islam and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam although the names are not mentioned in the Hadith, but their scriptures are,

00:15:09--> 00:15:10

in fact specific dates are given.

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

So in this month,

00:15:15--> 00:15:28

the scriptures were given to Ibrahim alayhis salaam, the NGO was given to the Torah was given to Musa alayhis salaam, the NGO was given to Isa de sola, and the Koran revealed to the Prophet sallallahu. And he was

00:15:29--> 00:15:33

so that that there's a history of revelation in the month of Ramadan.

00:15:34--> 00:15:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks to His prophets and messengers in this month, and a large reveal to his scriptures in this blessed month. So it's not just that.

00:15:45--> 00:16:01

And in keeping with this tradition, gibreel alayhis salam would regularly visit the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of course, to bring revelation, but he would increase his visits in the month of Ramadan

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

to such a degree

00:16:06--> 00:16:08

that he visits him every single day.

00:16:09--> 00:16:10


00:16:11--> 00:16:18

these visits are very different to the normal visits, one they would be daily. Secondly,

00:16:19--> 00:16:33

jabril alayhis salam, whether he bought he brought a new revelation or not. In these visits of Rama bomb, he would, he would spend time with us rule of law, and the law highly are some of them

00:16:34--> 00:16:38

doing without Mirage, which means revising the Quran.

00:16:40--> 00:16:41

And the method of revision

00:16:43--> 00:16:46

is something which we see all over the world in the month of Ramadan.

00:16:47--> 00:16:51

At homes in massage during the day, you see,

00:16:53--> 00:17:23

people pairing up students amongst themselves, teachers and students, friends, those who know the color and our hearts, and what they tend to do is one reads to the other, and he listens than the other reads to the first and hears this tradition stretches back all the way sort of sort of La Silla and even some of them, this is the meaning of Mirage, and mudassar, as is actually mentioned in

00:17:24--> 00:17:34

the province of the law hiding something Sallam would recite, recite the Quran to Djibouti alayhis salaam, whichever portion was revealed, till that day of the whole world.

00:17:35--> 00:17:54

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in sections would recite that entire revealed or an Did you believe that a salon who would listen attentively and you believe in his salon would recite the same hitherto revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he wouldn't listen to.

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

So this is a very unique tradition.

00:17:58--> 00:18:07

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be overjoyed by these visits of gibreel alayhis salaam in the month of Ramadan.

00:18:10--> 00:18:11

Mr. Mohan

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

relates the from Abdullah in our bus of the Lahore in Houma Hussein's

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

cannot lie It's a lie it was seldom

00:18:27--> 00:18:31

What can I judge with an eye a corner fear I'm a bomb helium opportunity.

00:18:32--> 00:18:36

What can I sell coffee equal at minimum a bomb for you dad.

00:18:38--> 00:18:44

For law is the law it was some edge with a bill hate him in a lesion masala.

00:18:45--> 00:18:48

And the lightner boss of the law says

00:18:51--> 00:18:57

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was the kindest and the most generous of all people.

00:18:59--> 00:19:01

He would be the most generous ever.

00:19:06--> 00:19:10

In the month of Ramadan, when gibreel would mean some Allah His

00:19:16--> 00:19:24

gibreel alayhis salam would meet him every single night in the month of Ramadan. And what would he do for you though?

00:19:25--> 00:19:31

He would revise the Quran with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in the manner that I've explained

00:19:32--> 00:19:51

and the light numbers of the alarm, my anxiety for the words. So surely, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was current and more generous in giving good in sharing good. He was more generous in good than even the free blowing wind.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

So I'm delighted our boss of the Allah who was his cousin, brother

00:20:01--> 00:20:07

A family member who would come in and out of the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam,

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

whose maternal arms

00:20:12--> 00:20:17

was married to a sort of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam not only was

00:20:20--> 00:20:26

prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam his cousin brother, from his father's side, from his mother's side

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

maimunah how the law

00:20:30--> 00:20:54

was his mother's sister's maternal aunt, and she was one of the wives. So by virtue of his kinship, by virtue of Bled by virtue of his arms, he would come in and out of the house, a lot of sort of law, a lot riding on them, and he was very young, he would wait upon him, he would attend to his needs, he would serve Him. And thus he had an opportunity to observe the messenger sallallahu wasallam.

00:20:55--> 00:21:02

closely in his private life at home, in fact, he would even spend nights with

00:21:04--> 00:21:13

so jabril le so I'm delighted and I burst of the alarm argument testifies by saying, first of all, of all the people, the kindest,

00:21:14--> 00:21:19

the most freely spending, the most generous,

00:21:20--> 00:21:31

was the sort of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there was no one more generous than the Messenger of Allah alayhis salaam, that's at any time of the year, but

00:21:32--> 00:21:43

especially in the month of Ramadan, his generosity, his kindness, his spending in good causes his sharing with everyone else, you know.

00:21:46--> 00:21:52

He was more generous in the month of Ramadan than you would ever be at any other time of the year.

00:21:53--> 00:21:56

And at other times, he was already the most generous wall of people.

00:21:58--> 00:22:11

And he explains the reason he says he would be most generous, he would be more generous than ever in the month of Ramadan, when he would meet with Djibouti lease this meeting with gibreel alayhis salaam,

00:22:12--> 00:22:34

and this revision of the arm with him, would inspire the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in such a way, delights him in such a manner raises spirits in such a way that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam despite already being the most generous of all people, he would spend like the free blowing when

00:22:36--> 00:22:37

charity giving.

00:22:40--> 00:22:52

And all of this was a result of meeting the gibreel ericeira. And the meeting of gibreel alayhis salam was specifically to rehearse and to revise the recitation of the Holy Quran.

00:22:53--> 00:23:02

And he would meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once each year in the month of Ramadan, meaning you would visit him every single night, but for the whole month,

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

and they would cover one quarter.

00:23:07--> 00:23:25

But in his in the penultimate year of his life before the province of the law, it was about to leave this world. In that final year, I saw the law and he his Salatu was Salam was visited by jabril le his Salaam in the month of Ramadan. And together, they completed two revisions of the whole book.

00:23:29--> 00:23:47

And that was a sweetener of gibreel alayhis salaam. He visited the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regularly in the month of Ramadan, just as he brought scriptures and revelation to the other messengers of Allah. So there's a very deep connection between the month of Ramadan and revelation between

00:23:49--> 00:23:54

the community in the communication between Allah the creator and his creation.

00:23:55--> 00:24:07

And in keeping with that tradition, of reciting the Quran, as much as possible in the month of Ramadan, sort of laughs a lot, it was sort of encouraged as the believers to recite as much as possible to

00:24:08--> 00:24:09


00:24:13--> 00:24:14


00:24:16--> 00:24:16


00:24:19--> 00:24:28

the Quran is the most recited book in the world. It's the most read book in the world. It may not be

00:24:29--> 00:24:34

the most published or the one that has been translated into the most languages.

00:24:38--> 00:24:46

It's may not be a best seller in the conventional sense, because many brands are given away for free.

00:24:50--> 00:24:51


00:24:52--> 00:24:53

more of the

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

more of this holy book resides in the minds and the hearts of Christ.

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Creation than any other.

00:25:05--> 00:25:07

If finds this place,

00:25:09--> 00:25:11

more lips or more tongues,

00:25:12--> 00:25:22

in more minds and in more hearts of the whole of creation, and has always done than any other book, any other work any other written piece.

00:25:23--> 00:25:24

And that's remarkable.

00:25:26--> 00:25:31

And this miracle of recitation can be observed in the month of Ramadan.

00:25:33--> 00:25:37

People who do not understand a single word of the whole book,

00:25:39--> 00:25:39


00:25:41--> 00:25:44

recite the Quran in its entirety in 30 days.

00:25:50--> 00:25:52

There have been stories of all a man

00:25:53--> 00:25:54


00:25:55--> 00:25:57

is what we call marches.

00:26:04--> 00:26:06

It's insurmountable,

00:26:09--> 00:26:11

it's unassailable.

00:26:19--> 00:26:24

It's unparalleled, unrivaled in its eloquence, in its beauty.

00:26:27--> 00:26:30

There's a power of the arm which we can't.

00:26:34--> 00:26:35

I've spoken before

00:26:37--> 00:26:38

of scholars

00:26:40--> 00:26:42

who are not half of the holy quarter.

00:26:48--> 00:26:49

That is a power of

00:26:55--> 00:26:58

law, what I can relate to my own experiences.

00:27:04--> 00:27:06

I personally known students

00:27:08--> 00:27:09


00:27:11--> 00:27:16

extremely poor in this that is in every other subject,

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

every other subject

00:27:22--> 00:27:24

in Arabic and Islamic Studies.

00:27:26--> 00:27:37

So they were very weak and Arabic, very weak, in fact, in heavy in every topic, in fact,

00:27:40--> 00:27:44

I have known students who have studied for years.

00:27:46--> 00:27:49

And despite studying Arabic for years,

00:27:51--> 00:27:52

in an intensive manner, along with the

00:27:53--> 00:27:54


00:27:56--> 00:28:12

Even after many years, they were unable to string together a single Arabic sentence and forget doing so verbally. They were unable to translate a single Arabic sentence successfully, because academically Unfortunately, they were very poor.

00:28:14--> 00:28:17

And yet, I have seen these same students

00:28:20--> 00:28:21

in my presence,

00:28:23--> 00:28:31

reciting the Quran, unfalteringly, unhesitatingly without a single mistake for hours on it.

00:28:36--> 00:28:37

I had a friend

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

who still is a friend,

00:28:42--> 00:28:43


00:28:45--> 00:28:49

he suffered from a stroke, and very severe

00:28:51--> 00:28:53

was very intelligent or sharp.

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

And he suffered from a very severe one.

00:29:04--> 00:29:09

In fact, when he was younger, he was often bullied and mocked because of his stuttering and a

00:29:11--> 00:29:12

very severe speech impediment

00:29:15--> 00:29:19

summit Seoul, and this remains a case that if you asked him a single question,

00:29:25--> 00:29:26

it takes him

00:29:27--> 00:29:29

quite a long time to respond.

00:29:31--> 00:29:33

One has to be patient and listening.

00:29:37--> 00:29:38

And yet, Allahu Akbar.

00:29:44--> 00:29:59

And like I said, I speak of experience because I've read the entire program to him and he has read the entire program to me in the month of Ramadan. We didn't have data as well, despite a stutter and Sparta stammer when he would begin reciting

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

In the Quran, Allah has been not a single pause or hesitation in the entire.

00:30:13--> 00:30:15

So here we have people

00:30:17--> 00:30:18

who are

00:30:19--> 00:30:27

actually academically pour in all of the subjects. But who can recite the entire program from beginning to the end of that mistakes. And

00:30:31--> 00:30:32

here we have

00:30:33--> 00:30:36

individuals of fall of the Holy Quran,

00:30:37--> 00:30:46

who suffer from a speech impediments, who stutter and stammer normal everyday conversation even with family members and close friends.

00:30:50--> 00:30:58

And yet, they can recite the entire book without faltering without hesitating without pause, and beautifully in melodies.

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

And yet, on the other hand, I've spoken in the past of Aloma

00:31:07--> 00:31:09

who have a photographique memory

00:31:13--> 00:31:14

who would actually

00:31:16--> 00:31:17

tell their students

00:31:20--> 00:31:21


00:31:22--> 00:31:30

I read this, they would cite a quote, from an Arabic commentary, and we're not even talking about the Koran or a book.

00:31:32--> 00:31:36

But some, a commentary on a book of fic.

00:31:38--> 00:31:42

So not only we have a text of Fiqh, it's not a book of study.

00:31:43--> 00:31:55

It's not a classical work, per se, it's one work out of countless other works of later generations. But we're not even talking about the text, are we talking about a commentary on the text

00:31:56--> 00:31:59

from later generations, and

00:32:00--> 00:32:05

the scholar is able to cite a very long quote

00:32:07--> 00:32:08


00:32:09--> 00:32:12

a commentary on a book of fic

00:32:14--> 00:32:18

and is able to say that I read that approximately 36 years ago.

00:32:21--> 00:32:25

And if you go back to it, you will not find a single letter, here are their

00:32:29--> 00:32:30


00:32:32--> 00:33:05

whose photography memory was marveled at and admired by other scholars, and other scholars would ask them that, is it true that you have a photography memory, and he would say in reply, of who they learned, if I read a book, by quickly, without any intention of actually memorizing but just rather quickly, inshallah I won't forget it for 30 years. And if I read a book properly, with a view to remembering it thoroughly, in Sharla, and never forget it for the rest of my life.

00:33:06--> 00:33:13

And yet, that same scholar who was who had a remarkable photography, memory, was unable to memorize

00:33:17--> 00:33:19

and not just unable to memorize the Quran.

00:33:22--> 00:33:23

He would be

00:33:25--> 00:33:47

seated in a huge congregation, and not just of common people listening to a simple sermon, but he would be seated in the midst of scholars and students, all at his feet. And he would sit there citing narrators of heavy biographies, dates, facts, figures,

00:33:50--> 00:33:58

obscure references, cross referencing this study for that heavy, all manner of details all from memory.

00:33:59--> 00:34:12

And then when he would come to a verse of the Quran, not only would he be able to cite it, he would actually say to the students, and the scholars seated before him, and as Allah says in that verse of the Quran,

00:34:14--> 00:34:21

which verses recite recite which one is it, and then the students from those who received in the congregation would

00:34:22--> 00:34:25

recite the verse and he would say, yes, that verse.

00:34:27--> 00:34:29

This is why we say the Koran is marches.

00:34:31--> 00:34:32

He has an amazing power

00:34:37--> 00:34:41

it masters all and none can master it elevates people as

00:34:43--> 00:34:46

a barber the alarm I've said this

00:34:48--> 00:34:54

a lot elevate certain people with it. And with the same goal am Allah basis of this?

00:34:55--> 00:34:57

law raises summon Lois,

00:35:01--> 00:35:11

Those who are unable to learn anything before enter their hearts and minds and resides in them. Those who are able to master other sciences, the Koran eludes them

00:35:17--> 00:35:18

truly is remarkable.

00:35:19--> 00:35:22

And in this month of Ramadan, we witnessed part of that miracle.

00:35:24--> 00:35:25

And there were some scholars

00:35:27--> 00:35:33

who had studied all the other Islamic sciences, or for some reason they hadn't become half of the Quran.

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

And under very extreme circumstances,

00:35:40--> 00:35:43

like in one story, the teacher and students were

00:35:45--> 00:35:47

imprisoned together.

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

Come the month of Ramadan.

00:35:54--> 00:35:58

The teacher said the who will lead is in therapy.

00:36:02--> 00:36:04

And his main student was with him.

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

volunteered said

00:36:08--> 00:36:09

that he was about a half an hour

00:36:10--> 00:36:22

every day in prison once fasting and living in in those squalid conditions of the prison. He would memorize one gist of the daily and recite it in

00:36:28--> 00:36:29

the Quran is true the marches

00:36:31--> 00:36:34

and all over the world as I said it's most recited book in the world.

00:36:37--> 00:36:38


00:36:40--> 00:36:42

we see the Koran being recited

00:36:44--> 00:36:48

even here masajid mother is

00:36:49--> 00:36:50

work workplaces

00:36:51--> 00:36:52


00:36:56--> 00:36:58

privately, publicly,

00:37:00--> 00:37:08

people stand in therapy practice. I've mentioned before that once in that I was traveling in another country and

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

in the midst of

00:37:11--> 00:37:12

great traffic.

00:37:14--> 00:37:25

We are going past the roundabout. So huge round, what not a huge roundabout meaning a decent size roundabout, because lots of traffic is hectic.

00:37:26--> 00:37:27


00:37:31--> 00:37:35

the scholars are with me pointed out

00:37:37--> 00:37:48

to me and said you see that roundabout? And I said yes. So what's that roundabout it's very special. It's just roundabout green grass patch in the middle.

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

This that in the month of Ramadan.

00:37:53--> 00:37:58

We actually have that are we salah and the whole plan is completed in the middle of that round.

00:38:01--> 00:38:03

So in the middle of roundabouts

00:38:05--> 00:38:15

in homes and workplaces and factories and massage and in modalities in the open, in courtyards and yards, in farms and villages and cities.

00:38:19--> 00:38:20

People recycle

00:38:22--> 00:38:24

and buy hearts in Malawi

00:38:26--> 00:38:30

as a last season, the Koran what are the external or analytic refarming

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

And verily we have made the or an easy to remember, easy for remembrance. So is there anyone to remember.

00:38:43--> 00:38:47

And in this month, we see that recitation of the

00:38:51--> 00:38:51


00:38:53--> 00:38:54

This is that relationship.

00:38:56--> 00:39:09

fasting during the day, along with all and if possible, bad nights, especially standing in Salah, standing before lying in the recitation. And even if it's not standing, and at least.

00:39:11--> 00:39:42

But to engage in the law of the Koran is one of the specific rituals of the month of Ramadan along with along with fasting, we should condition ourselves and we should constantly remind ourselves that Ramadan is about or arm and fasting, fasting and not just fasting. Ramadan is not the month of festivity and feast. It's not the festival. It's a month of fasting. It's a month of recitation. It's a month of remembrance of Allah subhanho

00:39:45--> 00:39:54

wa Taala and even some of them fulfill the sooner himself. He will recite the Quran gibreel Allah is Sora even though he was a recipient of the revelation

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

pursuit of Lhasa love it.

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

silom was told by Allah

00:40:03--> 00:40:07

in the middle to an akuna Minal Muslim in one upload

00:40:08--> 00:40:18

that say that I have been instructed by Allah to be of the Muslims and I have been instructed by Allah that what an ethical well or and that I resigned

00:40:21--> 00:40:30

even though he received the resignation, although I spoke to him directly to sort of look at his Salatu was Salam would besides unto the law

00:40:32--> 00:40:37

it was commanded by law to do so. And he told his followers to do the same

00:40:39--> 00:40:42

and the virtues are immense

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

and one heavy

00:40:57--> 00:41:02

related by I'm delighted number school that'll be alarm and recorded by man Timothy in a sudden

00:41:03--> 00:41:07

a small loss of love it was Sunday i'm saying is when we've got

00:41:10--> 00:41:11

Philip will be he has

00:41:12--> 00:41:17

what has to be actually in 30 her now a guru, I mean, how often when I can

00:41:21--> 00:41:21


00:41:23--> 00:41:36

them I'm delighted I'm sure there'll be a lover who says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, whoever reads a letter have whoever the whoever reads one have one letter of the of the book of Allah.

00:41:37--> 00:41:44

Then in lieu of that one letter, he shall have one reward and each reward is multiplied tenfold.

00:41:45--> 00:41:50

And then he continues, he says, I do not say Alif Lam mean,

00:41:51--> 00:41:57

is one letter. Rather than Elif is one letter, lamb is one letter mean is one.

00:41:59--> 00:42:02

And the significance of mentioning le flamming

00:42:03--> 00:42:19

Alif Lam. Meem is one of those unique combination of words and the Holy Grail at the beginning of the soul. Whose true meaning we do not know. Yeah, see ba haka. hiringsolved, Alif Lam, Meem, le, flam rah.

00:42:24--> 00:42:29

Only Allah knows the true meaning of these letters of these words.

00:42:31--> 00:42:39

So even a combination of three letters, a word of three letters, whose meaning we don't really know.

00:42:40--> 00:42:44

Just the recitation of Le flamming will earn you 30.

00:42:47--> 00:42:48

So what's the rest of the

00:42:53--> 00:42:56

in the deceit of sort of ln two weeks ago?

00:43:00--> 00:43:02

We learned that lassies

00:43:04--> 00:43:05

in the satria coalition,

00:43:06--> 00:43:09

verily, your effort is diverse.

00:43:10--> 00:43:24

Your endeavor is diverse. Every one of us is doing something we're trying to achieve something. We go out, we strive, every one of us is working towards something striving for something.

00:43:25--> 00:43:26


00:43:30--> 00:43:34

We toil every day. We plod along.

00:43:36--> 00:43:39

We where we strive, we go out, we labor.

00:43:43--> 00:43:49

Allah says yeah, you Helene sun in nakaka. The Quran Allah because Allah

00:43:51--> 00:43:51

Oh man.

00:43:55--> 00:43:57

You are plotting towards your Lord applauding.

00:44:01--> 00:44:06

You're struggling. It's not really plotting, struggling. You're struggling towards your Lord struggle.

00:44:08--> 00:44:12

In our journey of life, every day.

00:44:13--> 00:44:15

It's a fight. It's a struggle.

00:44:20--> 00:44:21

We're doing something.

00:44:23--> 00:44:27

This amazing body that Allah has given us. This amazing man.

00:44:30--> 00:44:31

It's all work.

00:44:33--> 00:44:35

We don't realize whilst we carry on

00:44:37--> 00:44:45

with our daily lives and our daily pursuits. Our bodies are working for us. Our minds are working for us.

00:44:47--> 00:44:52

Our bodies look after our nourishment, our energy,

00:44:53--> 00:44:56

our functioning, our breathing, our movement.

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

We are a world unto ourselves.

00:45:04--> 00:45:05

What's all this for?

00:45:09--> 00:45:10

Is it all just to

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

eat, drink?

00:45:16--> 00:45:17

And copulate and populate?

00:45:19--> 00:45:23

Eat, drink and procreate? Is that all it's for?

00:45:27--> 00:45:40

We regularly hear that this gray matter, this brain of ours, is the most complex organism known to man in the entire universe. There is nothing in the whole universe

00:45:42--> 00:45:47

that is as complex as this man as this brain of ours.

00:45:48--> 00:45:49

What is it for?

00:45:51--> 00:45:52

What is it for?

00:45:57--> 00:46:00

See, we share brains with others.

00:46:03--> 00:46:06

We share the same brain with primates, ours is larger.

00:46:08--> 00:46:12

In fact, we constantly hear of other species.

00:46:15--> 00:46:16

Bar related matters,

00:46:17--> 00:46:21

and that share the same brain, in fact, have a similar size.

00:46:26--> 00:46:30

And yet, man has one thing which is unique

00:46:32--> 00:46:33


00:46:38--> 00:46:41

There's one single gene, Fox p two,

00:46:43--> 00:46:46

which is responsible for speech, one single gene.

00:46:49--> 00:46:55

And they say that the same gene Fox p two is actually found in other species.

00:46:57--> 00:46:59

For some reason, it's not switched on.

00:47:00--> 00:47:07

No, no exaggeration. Now, the gene itself is to be found in other species, but there is no evidence that there was language

00:47:09--> 00:47:09

or there isn't.

00:47:13--> 00:47:15

That one single gene

00:47:16--> 00:47:24

is responsible for this one unique gift of men, which is speech. Last Pan horadada Z's are

00:47:25--> 00:47:25


00:47:26--> 00:47:28

Hospital in southern

00:47:31--> 00:47:33

iraq man, the Gracious

00:47:36--> 00:47:36

he taught me.

00:47:39--> 00:47:40

He taught the poor

00:47:43--> 00:47:49

man gracious, he taught the program, He created man, Allah and he taught him a

00:47:51--> 00:47:53

man along her speech.

00:47:54--> 00:47:58

We share so much with other animals, but this is something that makes us unique.

00:47:59--> 00:48:00

What's it all for?

00:48:02--> 00:48:09

Is it just to live like other animals to eat, drink, copulate, populate, procreate?

00:48:11--> 00:48:12

Was there a greater purpose?

00:48:14--> 00:48:16

Sort of last season the Sandia coalition

00:48:17--> 00:48:33

your efforts are diverse. In another verse in Nicaragua, the Quran in Arabic a caption from Allah Li, amen. You are struggling and toiling a toil and struggle towards your Lord, and then you shall need from Allah.

00:48:36--> 00:48:56

Once we are engaged in our everyday pursuits, whilst we every one of us is chasing something, who is chasing the best thing who has the best proceeds? First of all the law the law it who seldom stays and these leads by man Buhari, and others, from see you the mammoth monograph firm of the alarm lot on

00:48:59--> 00:49:03

the best of you is one who learns about Anna who teaches

00:49:04--> 00:49:06

by far he is the best.

00:49:07--> 00:49:12

We Marvel as everybody else we earn every single day. We're always striving.

00:49:14--> 00:49:15

Studies show

00:49:16--> 00:49:23

that once you reach the limit of 40 50,000 pounds sterling, no more money can make you any happier.

00:49:26--> 00:49:30

That's 50,000 pounds in other parts of the world,

00:49:33--> 00:49:36

thatched roof, mud walls,

00:49:38--> 00:49:39

single pair of Clans,

00:49:41--> 00:49:46

a meal for the day, and they are happy and contented. Nothing can make them happier.

00:49:50--> 00:49:52

boost to never give up. We're always

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

chasing wealth, earning more competing with each other

00:50:00--> 00:50:03

marveling at nature, racing with each other.

00:50:04--> 00:50:11

My degree should be better than the others. My qualification should be better than the others. My child's degree should be better than the others.

00:50:14--> 00:50:40

My child's qualification should be better than the others. My career should be brighter than anyone elses. My job should be higher paying more prestigious than anyone elses. When we grow older. My child's education and career and profession should be more rewarding financially and socially, it should be more prestigious than any of us. anyone elses. We're always competing.

00:50:42--> 00:50:56

And that competition leads us to envy. We want what others have. We want the car that someone has the house that another person has. We want their wealth, we want their social standing.

00:50:58--> 00:50:59

We want their riches.

00:51:01--> 00:51:03

And it never ends.

00:51:05--> 00:51:14

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that if we wish to envy someone without malice, then he's told us what we should

00:51:16--> 00:51:18

don't envy, wealth.

00:51:21--> 00:51:23

Or careers, or professions.

00:51:26--> 00:51:27

or anything else of the dunya

00:51:31--> 00:51:36

hora de la hora relates recorded by Mahatma Muslim in this he

00:51:37--> 00:51:42

he says Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said la hacer that he left with nothing.

00:51:44--> 00:51:47

That is no envy IE there should be no envy

00:51:48--> 00:51:50

except in two things.

00:51:52--> 00:51:53

So you should never envy and

00:52:00--> 00:52:01

when we envy someone

00:52:03--> 00:52:07

when we envy someone something in madness,

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

what we really want.

00:52:11--> 00:52:15

Arabic has beautiful distinction, which I've explained before, has said that.

00:52:20--> 00:52:27

But I won't go into detail now. But if we want to envy something, so if you want to envy someone something,

00:52:30--> 00:52:41

then what should we envy, the sort of loss on the line even some says there is no hazard. There is no envy except in two things. There should be no envy except two things.

00:52:43--> 00:52:46

You should look at anybody else and say I wish I had that.

00:52:48--> 00:52:59

Don't look at anybody else's lambs, their estates, their house, their homes, their riches, their transport their ride, and say, I wish I had

00:53:02--> 00:53:24

if we want to look at someone and marvel at what they have, and wish that we had the same, then this is what we should be wishing for. This is what we should be envious of. What sort of loss of love it was from them saying there has to be in this country. There has to be enough within a day. There is no envy except in two things. I have a number of love.

00:53:26--> 00:53:37

for who you are Anna later Anna and Maha for Samira who jaren facom later Neo Tito muslimah OTF Milan family to mithuna Maya

00:53:38--> 00:53:54

a man in law has taught the poor and so he recites it for all hours of the day and all hours of the night. And his neighbor hears him and explains that would How I wish

00:53:55--> 00:54:00

I was given what fuller has been given. So that I could do what he does.

00:54:02--> 00:54:04

And the second person what I drew them

00:54:16--> 00:54:27

And a man who Allah has blessed with wealth, then he spends that wealth in the truth. So a man exclaims, and say a man exclaims, saying,

00:54:29--> 00:54:42

I wish would that I had been given what such and such a person has been given. So the army do what he does. So there should be no envy there should be no marveling at anyone else.

00:54:43--> 00:54:52

And wishing that we had what they have. We have what they have accepted to things, the Koran and charity

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

in nothing else.

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

The Best of all, she is one who learns or Anna who teaches and then she

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

should be no envy except in two things. One, someone whom Allah has taught the Quran, he recites it for all hours of the day and all hours.

00:55:13--> 00:55:15

They so much reward for reciting the Quran.

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


00:55:20--> 00:55:23

we should all make an effort. It doesn't matter if we struggle.

00:55:26--> 00:55:40

Allah rewards us for everywhere when it comes to the poor and never give up, I've explained people who stutter and stammer in everyday conversation, recite the poor and beautifully melodies fluently without pause, without hesitation

00:55:43--> 00:55:44

without halting without faltering.

00:55:48--> 00:55:55

And even if one does struggle, because one is unable to pronounce the words properly, one is not proficient in reading.

00:55:58--> 00:55:59

Law still gives them a reward.

00:56:01--> 00:56:03

In fact, Emmanuel Harding him and Muslim both

00:56:05--> 00:56:14

from Germany and shall be aligned her she says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a man who will earn in mass authority will get on karami

00:56:16--> 00:56:23

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaks of the position of someone who is an expert of the Quran.

00:56:26--> 00:56:30

And who's a Maya who's someone who's proficient with

00:56:31--> 00:56:37

someone who is able to recite it properly. Someone who is able to understand it, as it should be understood as

00:56:40--> 00:56:57

someone who does justice to the poor and in this recitation, in understanding, such as an expert's the poor are and that will Mr. of the holy Pura farm and the Aurora especially the older man who preserve the means on the Pura

00:56:59--> 00:57:04

00:57:16--> 00:57:37

His rank is with them or he is in their company and not he is in their company. Now why them specifically because in sort of the abis last panel there are speaking of the poor and so you can log in from an avocado feast coffee mocha Rama mar 14 mocha hora ad suffer rotten karamba

is an admonition

00:57:44--> 00:57:47

so whoever wishes should take heed and remember that

00:57:50--> 00:57:50


00:57:52--> 00:57:53


00:57:54--> 00:57:56

honored scriptures.

00:57:59--> 00:58:08

In honored scrolls, the Quran is an unlimited use of karma in honored scrolls. My 14 mocha, elevated purified

Bay the sofala in the hands of Ambassador angels get arm in Burma, who are noble, and writers.

00:58:22--> 00:58:24

So the meaning is just as the arm

in a local manifold in the heavens is in the care and the custody and the protection of the ambassador right is noble angels, though because they look after the poor and and preserve it in the heavens. The father and the otter are on the orlimar and the experts of the Holy Quran, preserve the poor.

00:58:52--> 00:59:06

So those who preserve the earth on Earth, with their knowledge and their expertise and their beautiful recitation, they are in the company of those sufferable caramel Bharara, those right here, Ambassador angels

00:59:07--> 00:59:09

00:59:24--> 00:59:35

What's up everybody else? He says we're living your own way detector or fee worldwide insha Allah drawn and whoever recites

00:59:37--> 00:59:38

that's faltering.

00:59:39--> 00:59:41

I'm struggling they're in.

00:59:43--> 00:59:45

And it is difficult for him to recite

00:59:46--> 00:59:52

Quran he has a double rule. So one reward for recitation and one reward for

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

that is a reward of virtue of the dilemma of the poor. One should never give up. Memorize

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

As much as possible read as much as possible.

01:00:03--> 01:00:06

It's the Kalam of Allah is the speech

01:00:09--> 01:00:11

as I said he has a hidden power

01:00:13--> 01:00:25

and especially in the month of Ramadan the Quran is connected with Ramadan during the day reciting during the fast recite a drink during the night has always been the customer the believers

01:00:30--> 01:00:32

there are many how the CO speaker of the virtual

01:00:35--> 01:00:38

in one day is related by Muslim because he

01:00:42--> 01:01:08

sort of law so the law it says how much the American fee beat him will you learn yet rule Nikita law without assuming bainham Elana Zilla Valley he was Sakina Watashi wa Fatoumata melodica with a common law of human Ender. Never does a group of people gather in any one of the homes of Allah reciting the book of alarm, studying it amongst themselves, except that

01:01:09--> 01:01:11

tranquility descends upon

01:01:12--> 01:01:14

mercy envelops them

01:01:15--> 01:01:17

and the angels surrounding them.

01:01:18--> 01:01:22

And Allah mentioned them to those who are in a large company.

01:01:27--> 01:01:28

The angels duty

01:01:30--> 01:01:32

at the time of the recitation of the Quran,

01:01:38--> 01:01:41

Mr. Hardy and others relate to these.

01:01:43--> 01:01:46

But we'll see them but the alarm companion.

01:01:49--> 01:01:52

He was once reciting amounts

01:01:54--> 01:01:55

on the roof of his house

01:02:01--> 01:02:09

and in one duration in the compound, there's one duration on the roof and there's one narration in the compound. He was reciting

01:02:11--> 01:02:13

the whole of outside his house.

01:02:15--> 01:02:16

His child was close by

01:02:18--> 01:02:20

and there was a horse his horse was tied up.

01:02:21--> 01:02:31

As he was reciting loudly, all of a sudden the horse was startled, and he started Dancing and prancing about.

01:02:32--> 01:02:37

So let's say the alarm stopped as recitation.

01:02:38--> 01:02:40

As soon as he stopped, the horse settled.

01:02:41--> 01:02:57

When he resumed the horse bolted again. It was tied up so it didn't bolt away, but it started dancing, prancing. Can very excited, will say that the alarm stopped. As soon as he stopped his recitation, the horse settled, and

01:02:59--> 01:03:06

then for the third time, he resumed his recitation. As soon as he began reciting the horse began bouncing and prancing.

01:03:07--> 01:03:08

He stopped.

01:03:09--> 01:03:13

Then he feared for his child because it was close by so he went to check.

01:03:14--> 01:03:17

So he brought his child closer to safety.

01:03:19--> 01:03:21

And then he suddenly glanced at the heavens.

01:03:23--> 01:03:29

And he saw a huge cloud filled with lands as though they were land.

01:03:31--> 01:03:39

And he continued staring at it as it rolls and ascended. And then soon it disappeared. The whole cloud disappeared.

01:03:40--> 01:03:43

In the morning, he went to Seattle, Seattle last Friday.

01:03:45--> 01:03:51

And as he was relating the incident, is that a messenger of a lot last night hours Besides,

01:03:53--> 01:03:59

the horse was tied close by. And as I began, reciting the horse began Dancing and prancing.

01:04:01--> 01:04:02

So I stopped.

01:04:05--> 01:04:13

So it was as though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam mean? So he said to him, all said, carry on reading, carry on read.

01:04:15--> 01:04:21

So he said, Yes, your sort of love. When I resumed my recitation, it began dancing again.

01:04:23--> 01:04:58

And then when I stopped, it stopped. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, also carry on reading and carry on reading, when he related the whole story to him. And he said, O Messenger of Allah, I saw this huge cloud something like a cloud, filled with lives as though they were lamingtons. And they were rising and ascending to in the sky. And I watched them until they disappeared. prophets alarm it was seldom said I will say, do you know what that was? I said, No on messenger on the law. You said, these were the angels who are descended from the heavens to listen to your recitation of

01:04:59--> 01:05:00

and listen

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

Is what the horse saw.

01:05:03--> 01:05:16

An old save had you carried on reciting the angels would have descended to the streets of Medina to Medina and your companions people would have seen them, the angel would not have been hidden from the people.

01:05:18--> 01:05:20

That is the beauty of the quarter.

01:05:22--> 01:05:25

The animals recognize its virtue,

01:05:26--> 01:05:27


01:05:34--> 01:05:44

And under that is later by Muslim law here in his pursuit of loss of love and ecosystem says recorded this is narrated by a warmer at Berkeley it'll be a loved one.

01:05:45--> 01:06:04

He says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you put up an elephant in the hole yet the yarmulke and the dystrophy and this habit, read the book, recite the Quran, from the Day of Judgment, it will on the Day of Resurrection, it will come as an intercessor on behalf of his reciters.

01:06:06--> 01:06:11

Those who recite the poem on the day of the resurrection, the Quran will intercede on their behalf.

01:06:14--> 01:06:17

And in fact, speaking of Ramadan, and the Quran,

01:06:21--> 01:06:28

Abdullah Mohammed morass of the Allahumma relates in ideas recorded by Mt. Muslims.

01:06:29--> 01:06:30

He says that on the Day of

01:06:31--> 01:07:19

Resurrection, the or, and the fast will both plead with Allah on behalf of those who would fast and recite the Koran. They will both be given a voice and the fast will say, oh my lord, I prevented the servant of yours from his drinking and needs during the day, except mountain session on his behalf. Then the Koran will say Oh Allah, I prevented the servant of yours from resting at night because he was preoccupied and Marist ation, or law or my lord accepts my intercession on his behalf. The sort of loss of the law it says, For your shop fine, they will both be given, they will both be granted they're in session. That intercession links session of the arm and the fast on behalf of the fasting

01:07:19--> 01:07:23

reading reciting person will be accepted by a lot on the Day of Resurrection.

01:07:25--> 01:07:29

And I as for those who memorize the Quran, or who recites it well,

01:07:31--> 01:07:31


01:07:32--> 01:07:34

relates in his Muslim

01:07:38--> 01:07:41

from Abdullah, Mohammed, the glass of the Allah nkhoma

01:07:42--> 01:07:45

says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

01:07:46--> 01:07:49

on the day of judgment, sorry, your quarterly sashi will

01:07:51--> 01:07:53

work till tomorrow.

01:07:55--> 01:07:57

For 11 00 in the afternoon,

01:07:59--> 01:08:00

you will reset to the

01:08:01--> 01:08:11

person of the aura on the day of judgment that read and rise. I read and plan the stages and the grades of Gemma.

01:08:12--> 01:08:15

So it was said to him read and rise approach

01:08:17--> 01:08:32

what and resides as you would recite the world for your rank this day will be by the final verse that you recite. So carry on reciting where you end your recitation that will be your level.

01:08:34--> 01:08:39

So imagine those who will begin reciting, and carry on rising to the end of

01:08:42--> 01:08:46

every believer has a special relationship with God and especially in the month of love.

01:08:47--> 01:08:48


01:08:49--> 01:09:00

speaking of the tradition, the covenant will allow this Amen. There are so many stories of the rule of law but they gained special strength in the month of Ramadan. It's all about love.

01:09:01--> 01:09:03

It's all about what matters.

01:09:04--> 01:09:08

Those who love raving reveling in parties.

01:09:10--> 01:09:11

They can dance all night long

01:09:13--> 01:09:13

and they won't get tired.

01:09:15--> 01:09:16

bowls will love them.

01:09:17--> 01:09:24

Despite their hunger and their fatigue and their weakness in their sleep business. They can stand calm

01:09:26--> 01:09:29

in a very noble and dignified manner

01:09:32--> 01:09:37

humble and devout. They can spend the entire night recycling before

01:09:39--> 01:09:40

they can do

01:09:42--> 01:09:43

and it's been tradition.

01:09:47--> 01:09:48

Mr. Bahari

01:09:50--> 01:09:53

along with his traveling and along with his work on these

01:09:57--> 01:09:58

in the month of Ramadan,

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

He would complete one arm

01:10:03--> 01:10:05

every day during the day

01:10:06--> 01:10:08

and he will finish

01:10:11--> 01:10:12

the completion of the program

01:10:14--> 01:10:24

just before our time, and then He will say to his companions, that upon the completion of the Quran, Allah accepts people's lives,

01:10:25--> 01:10:25

then he would make

01:10:27--> 01:10:32

so one on every day, which he would complete just before Mohammed Salah.

01:10:33--> 01:10:42

And then at night, he would rise with his companions, and he would actually lead them in Salah, after Isha

01:10:43--> 01:10:46

and he would complete 10 one third of the Quran Allah

01:10:47--> 01:10:48

so in this way

01:10:53--> 01:11:16

with his companions, leading them in prayer, who have complete tentacle arms throughout the night of Ramadan. By the end of Ramadan, he will have completed telegrams, but in Salah whilst leading his companions machines and fellow Scots and during the day privately he would read one hole every day, by the end of the month he had 14 brands complaints

01:11:17--> 01:11:25

it's related that number one he for Ramallah, what completes one quarter and during the day whilst fasting and one tonight two.

01:11:28--> 01:11:33

Now people do say that how is all of that possible? relativity my friend relativity.

01:11:35--> 01:11:36

Time is relative.

01:11:48--> 01:11:53

We have microwaves, gas electric cookers,

01:11:54--> 01:11:56

stoves and hubs.

01:11:57--> 01:12:01

We have fancy kitchen appliances, dishwashers,

01:12:02--> 01:12:05

dryers, we know

01:12:07--> 01:12:18

we have cars, you have so much we have modern day technology instant communication, everything's instant, instant food, instant coffee, instant satisfaction and gratification.

01:12:19--> 01:12:22

Everything's instant instant communication a lot.

01:12:23--> 01:12:55

And yet, everyone's complaining no time, no time, no time. There's no barakah in our time, in the insulator by my ramblings Muslim, sort of lost a lot It also explains that a time will come when one year will become like one month one month will become like one jamara the meaning of one jamara is one week, and one week will become like one day and one day will become like one hour. And not our as we know it's of 60 minutes. But a moment, sir. And a moans

01:12:57--> 01:13:03

will be like the burning of a week meaning of flash. There will be no Baraka in our time.

01:13:05--> 01:13:09

And we see that in other ways. You've all heard of imagery of poverty or

01:13:12--> 01:13:15

even a journey the poverty era was famous scholar.

01:13:20--> 01:13:28

He died in 310, hd 310 years after that after the hedgehog Rasulullah sallallahu. It was a very famous scholar.

01:13:30--> 01:13:35

He wrote many works, many of which are unfortunately extinct we we've lost them.

01:13:37--> 01:13:38


01:13:41--> 01:13:46

very few of his works are excellent. But two of them are famously that the seed

01:13:49--> 01:13:50

of holy Cora.

01:13:52--> 01:13:56

And normally it's available. Well, it's a huge see.

01:13:57--> 01:14:09

And it's interesting to know that this deceit and commentary of imagery of poverty is actually an abridged version of his original commentary, which is lost to us.

01:14:11--> 01:14:14

And he has a book on history called that equal only one look.

01:14:15--> 01:14:20

The history of nations and emperors in Arabic.

01:14:21--> 01:14:22


01:14:27--> 01:14:33

an abridged summarized translation and abridged summarize translation.

01:14:35--> 01:14:47

It's not even word to word. It's just a very loose, abridged summarized translation of his book of history, the history of nations and emperors.

01:14:48--> 01:14:59

This has been translated by a collection of academics and professors and published over many years and that runs into 40 volumes but it's taken

01:15:00--> 01:15:03

a whole team of academics and professors

01:15:04--> 01:15:14

and Arabic linguists to translate that work into English and polish it all the time. That's just one of his works. Even at the poverty Ramallah,

01:15:15--> 01:15:17

his students gathered after his death.

01:15:19--> 01:15:30

And in the olden days, it wouldn't have a small a4 sheets but a very large parchments and scrolls. So they collected all of his written works, and they calculated them.

01:15:31--> 01:15:42

And their final tally was that during his lifetime, even though Jerry the poverty ragamala had written 300,000 pages

01:15:43--> 01:15:45

in those in those days with

01:15:46--> 01:15:49

quills and ink pots and candle lines,

01:15:51--> 01:16:00

a lot of place back in that time, but the reason I mentioned imagery of poverty is because we have proof of that. We have that proof.

01:16:03--> 01:16:08

Gilardino so up Ramallah scholar who died in 911 hedgelaying.

01:16:13--> 01:16:14

He died before the age of 40.

01:16:16--> 01:16:17


01:16:18--> 01:16:23

he left behind hundreds of words hundreds was a polymath.

01:16:26--> 01:16:30

One of his famous works as a commentary of the whole record of civil geronemus speaking of the Quran

01:16:34--> 01:16:37

and I won't go into the details, but he only did half of them.

01:16:38--> 01:16:42

But only half his teacher commenced it.

01:16:43--> 01:16:53

His teacher only managed to do half before he passed away. So gelada Dena Suki, Rahim Allah, He completed his teachers work, and he completed the

01:16:56--> 01:17:02

half of the seat of July lane. Strangely, his teacher started it from South Africa

01:17:03--> 01:17:23

and ended it till the with the end of the quarter. So even though he did it first, he did the second 15 first and then he left this world, gelato, Venus, UT rahimullah completed his work. Even though he came he did it later, he started from the beginning and took it till halfway. And that's counterintuitive and sounds strange. But that's the fact

01:17:24--> 01:17:30

that he completed a commentary of 15 parts of 30 parts of the

01:17:31--> 01:17:39

gelato Dino Cod. And the idea the pattern of this stuff see is to summarize

01:17:40--> 01:17:46

the commentary of the other scholars and provide a very succinct commentary of the words of the Quran.

01:17:47--> 01:17:49

That is a task in itself.

01:17:50--> 01:18:19

for someone to just waffle and say anything is one thing for someone to measure and calculate their words and provide a commentary of the whole Holy Quran in a very succinct manner is a very strenuous and mental activity. It requires a lot of mental thought and vigor and time. But do you know how long it took Jalali Dena saluti, to complete the commentary of one half of the Quran in that man

01:18:22--> 01:18:23

40 days.

01:18:25--> 01:18:28

He completes the commentary of half of the Quran in 40 days.

01:18:29--> 01:18:34

Allah place Baraka in their time. So the reason I've given these examples of

01:18:36--> 01:18:40

modern American hire, luckily, we are a scholar of the Indians continents.

01:18:44--> 01:18:48

Not too long ago, he also died before the age of 40.

01:18:49--> 01:18:57

And yet, by that time, without any modern day equipment is talking about well over a century and one and a half centuries ago, approximately.

01:18:59--> 01:19:05

Almost two now, do you know how many books he produced? And we're not talking about booklets we're talking about

01:19:06--> 01:19:13

very authoritative, scholarly works. before the age of 40. He passed away he left behind 125 works.

01:19:14--> 01:19:36

So I've given these examples of books to show to show something which is we have evidence we have written proof. We are unable to read what one is, in our whole lifetime, the output of one individual scholar and that's just reading with modern methods. And yet they were able to write 10 times more than what we can read

01:19:38--> 01:19:57

as proof a lot of places Baraka in their time. So speaking of Eman hanifa Rahim Allah is it then to find a stranger, if a lover to place Baraka in this time, you would have completed one quarter am during the day one quarter and during the night, man Buhari rahimullah one call and during the day, one

01:19:58--> 01:19:59

tempo arms sorry

01:20:00--> 01:20:16

One around during the day, and one third of the amount. And I mentioned him I'm hunting for him a lot. And I mentioned him while he first because some people as soon as they hear the name of mumble or hanifa Rahim Allah, they'll say, one cor and during the day one gram during the night, that's a fable.

01:20:18--> 01:20:21

And then when you mentioned him and mahadasha mala, they won't say the same.

01:20:24--> 01:20:25


01:20:27--> 01:20:30

some people get very excited when we mentioned the name of the month,

01:20:31--> 01:20:40

unfortunately, so imagine what any farmer who lost 64 arms in the month of Ramadan Imam Bukhari Rahim, Allah 40 hours in the month

01:20:41--> 01:20:45

and how are they able to do it? As I said relativity, my friend relativity.

01:20:49--> 01:21:04

I pray that last panel with Allah enables us to recite as much as possible in the upcoming month, and we don't just have a duty to, to read the poem. We also have a duty to understand the

01:21:12--> 01:21:37

last time hold on I sees a fillet to the bottle of Amanda Rubinoff. What do they not reflect and ponder over the water and what are their locks and seals on their hearts in another verse, under now really come about a lid the bottle as well, that car order Book which We have revealed to you which is blessed, we have revealed it to you so that

01:21:39--> 01:21:44

they may reflect on its verses, and the ones who possess intelligence may take.

01:21:45--> 01:22:02

So the Quran is a book Not Just to read, but also to reflect and to understand, and then I will do to doesn't stop there. There's a third duty in our relationship with which is to act on what we have learned and understood from our reading and study of the holy crap.

01:22:03--> 01:22:40

That is pray that the upcoming upcoming month of Ramadan is one in which we are able to observe the fast as we should. And along with our fast a lot also enables us to honor the whole game. And in that month, by way of it's still our hand recitation, by way of its understanding and by reflecting on its verses, and also by acting on what we have learned and gained from the Holy Quran was a lot more subtle. He would have sold in the Vietnam humid while he was in panic a lot more official, the one that he learned or stuff it'll go on until we make
