Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam may Allah subhana wa Clara's peace and safety and may his mercy be upon you or Millis Panwar to Allah bless our Ramadan to Han Allah Subhan Allah, we already closing on a 10th of Ramadan and for some of us attempt has already been completed. Brothers and Sisters in Islam today's episode of our series moments with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is related to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala itself because the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Quran the final testament, the timeless miracle provides us not just moments with Allah subhanho wa Taala but countless moments with Allah subhanho wa Taala firstly,

00:00:47--> 00:01:26

Brothers and Sisters in Islam, as I said, it's the timeless miracle every miracle came and went with its profit, it came with its profit, and it departed with its profit. We don't have the stick of Musa alayhis salam, and we don't have the healing powers of Elisa alayhi salam, but we have the Quran. That was the greatest miracle Allah subhanho wa Taala gave to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and today we recited Subhan Allah as it was revealed upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it's preserved about Allah subhanho wa Taala and is promised to preserve it is also in the Quran, the final testament and the timeless miracle. This book Brothers and Sisters in Islam, it

00:01:26--> 00:02:07

provides us as I said, not just moments with Allah but countless moments with Allah subhanho wa Taala it is his words subhanho wa Taala let you know him Allah subhanaw taala It is Allah subhanho wa Taala less words brothers and sisters in some pond over that for a moment, right? We have with us kalimat Allah, the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala and thus the pious before us is to say like Maria will help Bob indeed Allah subhanahu Urla raises in rank nations and debases nations, depending on the proximity to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala how close they are to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala how distant they are from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and in the

00:02:07--> 00:02:46

handler in the month of Quran and Allah has created an entire ecosystem to assist us really attaching ourselves with the Quran and adopting it as a companion. We are in the month of of Quran first and foremost and Allah changed the shell been to assist us to be closer to his book, and also he limits our attachment to the dunya for he forces us away from food and drink. And again, that brings us closer to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala but brothers and sisters Ramadan isn't just the month in which we have a relationship with the Quran. Yes, it is the month in which the Quran was revealed but not only month. With regards to the Quran, it's meant to be a month that instigates

00:02:46--> 00:03:01

true transformation in terms of our relationship with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala even Madame McAleese Rahim Allah agreed humbly jurist, he said that it is disliked for a person not to complete the entire reading of the Quran

00:03:03--> 00:03:47

within 40 days within 40 days, meaning for them to go past 40 days, and they haven't completed reading the entire Quran May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all. And remember to be Rahim, Allah, the famous Maliki Fortean scholar and professor as well. He says that 40 days is the time period for the weak ones, and those who are extremely busy, and it will assure, as he says, and we care means meaning they have health impediments. And also you could take his instruction to refer to those who have a weakness even in faith. Now Brothers and Sisters in Islam or weakness in terms of the relationship with the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, brothers and sisters, and it's now

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

what about those who don't complete the reading of the Quran?

00:03:50--> 00:04:36

Six, you know, after 60 days after 90 days after 120 days, subhanAllah maybe not even the whole year and they only maybe do a clutter, a competition in Ramadan. Subhan Allah Subhana Allah, you know, Zenit, from the tab you're in, he would say that I would leave my home in Medina at the time of Fajr and I wouldn't pass a home except that you'd hear people reciting the Quran La Ilaha illa Allah imagine that Brothers and Sisters in Islam that early kick off the day, reciting the Quran, before they head out to the fajr prayer, and Imam Ibn Taymiyyah Rahim Allah. He says, I never ever found anything more refreshing and replenishing to the mind more soothing to the heart, and more serene to

00:04:36--> 00:04:39

a person's chest and self

00:04:40--> 00:05:00

and more sweet to a person's demeanor. Then continuous looking into the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning reciting the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala for indeed it is. It is the replenishment for the people of understanding and if you

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

Production on it Subhan Allah, this is, you know, what the giants of this ummah, those giants and I always say whose shoulders we tried to balance on Subhan Allah I mean, we can even go with them toe to toe, and we can't even stand on the shoulders, we tried to balance on the shoulders, these amazing people, they were attached to the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. And in their statements, lessons for us Brothers and Sisters in Islam, that if we want to ascend, then let us transcend our barriers with the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. And really Brothers and Sisters in Islam, connect with the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. And connecting doesn't mean reading and at the start, you

00:05:36--> 00:05:42

can't wait to finish that as soon as I started reading the book, my only desire is to finish the book of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:05:43--> 00:06:18

But really connecting with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala that you open it with love and you open it with care and you open it with desire and you spend time with it with love and care and desire just like you would with someone who you endeavored to meet and love to meet someone who really all of your heart and your soul and your mind and your body and yourself really wants wants to meet it. I would like when we also see Subhanallah in people when they love with each other, they always want to be with their beloved and they said when they away from the beloved and they yearn to be united that is the relationship that we should have with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala that

00:06:18--> 00:06:57

it's Beloved to us. And as such, we yearn for it, we love it, we miss it, we can't wait to open it and spend time with it and our desire is not to finish it as soon as we start reading it. And then inshallah we will see Subhan Allah, it being a companion with us after we pass away when you in the grave and it's dark and you see the lights of time Allah and you won't recognize this light and the reasoning for this light and this person will say I am your companion, from the time when you are alive. The book of Allah subhanho wa Taala that you spend time with I'm here to guide you to protect you to be a means for for you. And as we also seen countless generations not just in the grave, but

00:06:57--> 00:07:39

even beyond the grave for a person will be brought in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala Torah to Bukhara and Surah Surah and Imran will be will be defenders of the person will be similar to how lawyers argue on behalf of the client, the defendant to support their claim towards some opportunity. And our opportunity, no doubt will be Jana meaning Surah Al Imran bakr will be a means for us to pass the test with Allah subhanho wa Taala and there are other suitors in the Quran and each Surah has its fair share of virtues that you and I really need to earn salvation in this life before the next Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Let's face it, you know, we will always always always

00:07:39--> 00:08:16

be busy. Being busy is not an excuse. When it comes to not finishing the Quran at least in 40 days, Brothers and Sisters in Islam and preferably in 30 days Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we will even die having bills to pay having things to do having touched to complete danger of death doesn't wait for us to become free from our busy time. And you know one last thing Brothers and Sisters in Islam I have a principle that I live by and that is we never too busy to do the things that are important. Never. If we are too busy it only means that the things we're too busy for are not that important. So remember that brothers and sisters Mr because no matter how busy we are, we always have time for

00:08:16--> 00:08:32

ourselves and for the things that are important to us. So make the book of Allah subhanaw taala important to you and you will never ever be busy for it. In fact you will be busy with it creating moments with Allah subhanho wa Taala and I love your for the sake of Allah until next time, salam ala Alikum warahmatu obrigada
