Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh I hope you all my dear brothers and sisters in Islam and welcome to part one of our series moments of the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala this Ramadan 1441 a unique Ramadan and it coincides with the English year 2020 a year now famously known as the year of COVID 19 two panela you know I recall Subhana Allah at the end of our last Ramadan in our last series The Ramadan reflections that we ran over Instagram I mean to Allah for love to accept that Ramadan and to preserve us in his obedience so that we witness another Ramadan and hamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala has answered our door when he left his home then we ask Allah at this point to
take us safely through this Ramadan and take us right to the end with our rewards intact. I mean, your
brothers and sisters in Islam today's moment comes from Surah Fatiha and in particular the ayah can Abu what kind of studying you alone do we worship and You alone do we seek assistance from this is what we say whenever we decide to go to Fatiha inside of our salah and outside of our Salah. We testify and we declare some kind of law when we recite this ayah that Allah you alone do we worship and You alone do we seek assistance from the scholars of Islam say that all the meanings of the Quran are found in Surah Fatiha Subhan Allah and all the meanings of certain Fatiha are found in this particular area. He can do what he can to stay La ilaha illa Allah, this means to canon law
that, you know the entire Quran is a Tafseer and explanation of this area here Can I do what I can to strain in fact to panela we have books in volumes written as an explanation of Iraq and Abu we are going to stay if this is the reality brothers and sisters in Islam. And so Pamela, this ayah is fresh on our terms, especially during the month of Ramadan, given the amount of units that we recite during the day and during the night. What is our relationship with this particular verse? Is it one of of true synchronization? Is it one of true understanding? Is it one whereby we've understood the meaning and that meaning has become intrinsic with our soul and our heart and our mind and our body
such that it governs the way we think the way we feel the way we act? Or is it one that you know that we have one of those those distant relationships with we recited we have an idea what it means but that's about it. If this is the reality of ear canal Buddha canister in in terms of it carrying the meanings of the Quran, the brothers and sisters in Islam, surely you and I, as people who believe in one Allah and people who are carriers of the Quran and protectors of the Quran, and people who have accepted Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the final messenger, surely we need to have a more intimate and close relationship with
this eye. You know, brothers and sisters in Islam, when we recite this ayah we are saying to Allah, that Allah, Ya Allah, you are the only one who can help us. Yeah, Allah, you are totally independent, and we are totally dependent and everything in existence is dependent upon you. There's no one else who can help us besides you. And even if we could get help from other people, then they are in need of your assistance before they can be in our assistance. So ultimately, Allah no one can help us so there's no one with your worship besides you. You are the all powerful you are in control, you are in charge. Who else should we worship? Besides you? Yeah, Allah, when you are the
only one who we seek assistance from and worship Allah. This is the reality of what we say, brothers and sisters in Islam. And this is this is the reality brothers and sisters in Islam, then surely, we need to remain upon the mandates of this ayah irrespective of where the world throws us because that's what the world does. It gives us days that are for us and days that are against us days that make us smile, days that make us sad, it gives us days where we feel relaxed and tapanuli gives us days you know, Subhana line which we feel pressured right, we feel stressed.
But whenever we go through whatever we go through, we never forget this year can Abuja Can I stay in that at the end of the day? Subhana Allah Allah is the Greatest he can help us he will help us we only worship Him and whatever Allah does, he does good and as a result our thoughts become guided our heart becomes guided our soul becomes guided our feelings become guided our actions become guided that anger that we might feel the stress that we might feel panela begins to subside why because we remember ear canal Buddha Yeah, kind of stay this Ramadan, brothers and sisters in Islam, we will be reciting this ayah even more than outside of Ramadan or the remaining months of the year.
Why? Because of Hana law we have set out to throw away that is extra to the obligatory units of Salah that we pray daily aside of taraweeh inshallah, we will be motivated to you know towards ourselves.
Serving serve as a doctor and the sooner narrative and so on and so forth. This Rama van pays special attention when you say he can actually do what he can to stay and ensure that this area is synchronized with every part of your being.
And this will be a mighty transformation for the rest of your life. until another moment I love you all for the sake of Allah salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
