thriller Han Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa Safi as mine.

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

Rob is roughly Southern uncle Emery was blown off the terminally sunny of Coca Cola bad press due to loss of Hannah Montana. And please be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam testified that there's no god except a law and artistic father Muhammad is the Prophet and the Messenger of Allah. Brothers and sisters.

00:00:58--> 00:01:23

Thank Allah subhana wa tada for this opportunity and opportunity that Allah subhana wa tada puts us together to remember like Xhosa together and prepare ourselves for the month of Ramadan together. And when we have less than one week away to the month of Ramadan, ask Allah azza wa jal to make us from amongst those who experienced the month of Ramadan and get the most out of the month of Ramadan and benefit out of the month of Ramadan.

00:01:24--> 00:01:53

And tonight's lecture, as preparation for the month of Ramadan, the month of Ramadan is the month of the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Holy Quran, Shahada Madonna lady on Zilla filco on the month of Ramadan, is the month that Allah subhanho wa Taala had revealed the Quranic idiom in it. So the month of Ramadan is the month of Quran and Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the Quranic aim in the month of Ramadan

00:01:55--> 00:02:40

and it's our responsibility to understand the importance of the month of Ramadan and to connect the Quranic aim to the month of Ramadan and connect the month of Ramadan to the Quran Allah Kareem because both of them are connected to one another. The month of Ramadan is the month of Quran the Quran was revealed in the month of Ramadan. And Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly stated in the Holy Quran, Shahada Madonna lady on the left Al Quran. The month of Ramadan is the month that Allah subhanaw taala revealed the Quranic in a minute. Why did the loss of Hannah Tyler mentioned that for us to not understand the importance of the month of Ramadan? The month of Ramadan is not only the

00:02:40--> 00:03:15

month of fasting the month of Ramadan is not only the month of attending the mouse, the month of Ramadan is not only the month of praise, but the month of Ramadan is also the month of the Quran, Kareem and it's so important and vital for us as Muslims to connect ourselves to Allah subhanho wa Taala and to the Parana Karim in the month of Ramadan and never ever disconnect yourself from the Quranic idiom especially after the month of Ramadan. So the month of Ramadan is an opportunity for us to connect ourselves to the chronically into the Sacred Book of Allah the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:16--> 00:03:59

those words that Allah subhanaw taala revealed to us through jabril to Mohammed sal Allahu Allah, He will send them to us. Those words, the loss of Hannah tala Chairman, the entire mankind to bring something that's similar to the Quranic game, or the logic of any of the verses of the Quran, Kareem and Alonso subhanho wa Taala continues with the challenge to the Day of Judgment for anyone to bring something that's similar to the Quranic aim. And the beginning of the challenge started with Allah subhanho wa Taala says bring something similar to the Quranic Karim. There are lots of hydrotherapy said bring something that's similar to some of the verses of the Quran, Allah Kareem that Allah azza

00:03:59--> 00:04:41

wa jal he says even if you bring something that's similar to 10 verses out of the 6000 verses of the Quran, Allah Kareem and Allah subhana wa tada it makes it very clear that will never ever ever achieve that. No one never ever reached to the level in which they will even bring a verse like laquanda carrying the eloquence of the Quranic aim the content of the Quran, Allah Kareem what the Quran carrying contains the words of the Quranic and in the terms that Allah subhana wa tada is carrying the harmony in between the words and the verses and the chapters that Allah subhana wa tada puts in the Quran, the Quran, for that my brothers and my sisters, one of my primary objectives for

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

me as a Muslim who wants to please Allah subhanho wa Taala and fulfill the commands of Allah azza wa jal in his or her life is that I want to connect myself to not only caring because when I connect myself to the book of Allah, I connect myself with Allah subhanho wa Taala. I'll definitely connect myself

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

for the,

00:05:02--> 00:05:47

for the my brothers or my sisters, let it be a goal. Let it be an objective for you in the month of Ramadan, that you want to connect yourself to the Quran Kareem. You want to connect yourself to the book of Allah. You want to connect yourself to the words of Allah azza wa jal when I say connect yourself to the Quranic idiom, I mean, not only reciting the Quran, but first and foremost that I'm reading the Quranic idiom for the sake of Allah azza wa jal in which I correct my intention for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada say, secondly, our resort the Quranic area, and our resort the Parana game the wider prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam result of the chronically saw result the

00:05:47--> 00:05:51

Quranic and imagery are resolved the Quranic in him correctly.

00:05:52--> 00:06:32

And after our resort, The Karate Kid incorrectly and I recite the Quran again with the dream. I also intend to understand the Quranic Kareem I want to understand the Quran Kareem our understand the words of Allah azza wa jal our understand this beautiful verses that Allah subhana wa Taala has revealed I want to understand exactly what Allah subhanaw taala is addressing me. I want to understand the words the loss of Hannah with Allah mentioned Napoleonic Karim. So not only that you want to earn in a month in the month of Ramadan that you want to read the Parana Karim, but I am in the month of Ramadan that you want to read the Quran again, readable only can incorrectly read the

00:06:32--> 00:06:55

Quranic limited read and also understand the Parana Kareem and my brothers or my sisters, the moment that you start understanding the Khurana Karim and then you start tasting the beauty and the sweetness of understanding the game, then you push yourself at a level that you've probably never experienced in the past, and then you'll have the true connection to the Karate Kid him.

00:06:57--> 00:07:09

So not only that you have that not only that you have connection with him with your tongue, but you have connection with him with your tongue with your heart and your mind and that's what I aim for in the month of Ramadan.

00:07:10--> 00:07:29

The I want to connect myself to the Quran, Karim with my heart, connect myself with my tongue by reciting the Quran again. And I also want to connect myself to the Quran, the Quran with my mind that I understand the game. Now I understand the theory I contemplate

00:07:30--> 00:08:04

when I read a verse, not only that I'm reciting that verse with my tongue. Not only that I've got a beautiful voice, not only the reader could only get him into a dream, but also I want to advance it and develop myself and understand the karate kid in understandable arnicare him and if you if you aim in the month of Ramadan, every day you aim that you want to understand just one page, one page out of the 600 pages of the Quranic Arabic, you either you want to understand one page every single day.

00:08:06--> 00:08:37

That means you've understood one and a half juzo of the Quran occurring in the entire month of the month of Ramadan. Then every day you start building up on the until after 10 or 15 years, you're up to understood the Quranic theory. And next time you read the Quran curry, you read the provocative understanding the Parana Kareem and then you see yourself becoming more attached to the Quran Karim. And when you attach to the Quran in Korean, you become attached to the laws of the Quran and that's Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:39--> 00:08:50

you become attached to the one that spoke those words in a way that suits His glory and majesty Allah subhana wa Tada. You become attached to the one that revealed the poor.

00:08:51--> 00:09:06

That's why Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that he makes mention of the inner chronically Shara Madonna lady on zelophehad put on the month of Ramadan is the month that Allah subhana wa tada revealed the karate get him in it.

00:09:07--> 00:09:57

For them, my brothers and my sisters. Let that be an objective a goal for you that you want to achieve in the month of Ramadan. To achieve that reconnection to the Parana Kareem, I really want to connect myself to the book of Allah azza wa jal, then the true connection starts to appear on your after the month of Ramadan in which you can't even live a day without opening the book of Allah azza wa jal or reading something from the Quran and getting and then you achieve your ultimate goal. That is not a day that goes past your life, whether you're opening the portal and you read the article, and you continue connecting yourself to Gary, that's your ultimate goal. 365 days in a year 365

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

times at least you opened up

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

aquarium and connect yourself to the aquarium. That will be an ultimate goal, though be something that you achieve a great accomplishment and a great achievement that you will not let a day go past your life without opening the Parana Karim. When was the last day he opened the book of Allah azza wa jal When was the last they opened up for only Kareem and you connected yourself to Napoleonic any you don't want to be from amongst those that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions about in Napoleonic and in the in the hereafter no say it does.

00:10:35--> 00:10:37

genre and then in the Quranic game,

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

the karate Karina he after will either come

00:10:43--> 00:10:49

to look alike, either a proven evidence for you or proof or evidence against you.

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

So the Quranic aim is one of two.

00:10:54--> 00:11:36

The Quranic theory is one of two, either proof and evidence for you, or proof or evidence against you. So Ronda in it assists you so where do you fit in? Is the Parana Karim proven evidence for me or is a proven evidence against me? Let's say you stand before a judge and it's the day of judgment is the Quranic and him going to come and support you and defend you and protect you and be the proven evidence this idea Allah he or she recited me during the day annoyed yeah Allah the opening man though we're always reading me or is the army getting guarantee comm proof and evidence against you?

00:11:37--> 00:11:51

proven evidence against Allah I was only a book on the shelf eaten by the dust last the rest of the books. I was given a value I was given a respect was rarely opened

00:11:52--> 00:12:16

up only through the month of Ramadan once a year. Don't think about me and they'll open me and read me. But then you've got another month, throughout the entire year. I'm just left like the rest of the books on the shelf. Is the army carrying a book love the rest of the books that you've got on the shelf? Or is the chronic anymore higher status to you that you opened up or only get him every single day of your life?

00:12:18--> 00:12:26

Every single day of your life you opened up a game and you recite the Quran Kareem This is your connection to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:27--> 00:12:36

you need to connect yourself to Allah azza wa jal and you can be fully connected to lots of parallel data. If you are disconnected from the book of Allah.

00:12:38--> 00:13:02

He can't be connected to life. If you are disconnected from the words of Allah, so if you really want to be connected to Allah, you need to connect yourself to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then that will be the tree connection to our lives origin. Then later they go past your life without opening the ionic idiom, even though you only read one verse or two.

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

But then leave the

00:13:05--> 00:13:08

book on the shelf love the rest of the shelves.

00:13:09--> 00:13:19

Then that happened in your life. dollar Oh no. Oh there you go past your life without opening up for another game and connect yourself in the book of Allah.

00:13:20--> 00:13:49

But once again, my brothers and my sisters not only don't want to read the Quran, Curry, but also want to understand the Quran, the Quran, understand what Allah subhana wa Taala is addressing me, because there's a Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, He says if you want a lots of data to address you and speak to you, the reader chronically when you read the book, it is a loss of Hana without addressing you. It is a large soldier speaking to you and what more

00:13:52--> 00:13:55

can you ask for that Allah subhana wa tada is speaking to you.

00:13:56--> 00:14:02

Then I look forward to that moment that you speak to someone that you love. And the one that you love speaks to you

00:14:04--> 00:14:36

that you look forward to that moment that someone that you admire someone that you respect to someone they look up to, that are speaking to you, is greater than Allah azza wa jal is more honorable than Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then Allah subhanaw taala is addressing you, Allah, speaking to you, and how does allies address you and speak to you through his sacred book through the Parana Karim? This book, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Fulani getting low, I'm setting the hurdle or Allah Allah Javelin la la.

00:14:38--> 00:14:49

Casa de casa de la. If we were to reveal the Quranic idiom upon a mountain, the mountain will shake and humble itself from the words of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:14:51--> 00:14:52

The mountain

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

and look at big, humongous, powerful,

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

strong The mountains are if the world

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

I

00:15:01--> 00:15:05

want to be revealed on the mountains, the mountains will shake.

00:15:06--> 00:15:08

The mountains will shake

00:15:10--> 00:15:30

because of the words of Allah subhanaw taala that will shake for the words of Allah azza wa jal, they will humble themselves to the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala save the mountain and look at big, strong, powerful The mountains are that will shake, then definitely your heart must shake and tremble.

00:15:31--> 00:15:38

But the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala are treated like words in some magazine, or in some book.

00:15:39--> 00:15:48

The words of Allah subhanho wa Taala is just like a document that we just read. No, we need to change our attitude towards the Quranic meaning

00:15:50--> 00:16:11

our attitude needs to change towards the Quranic aim, when you change your attitude towards nicotine, then you start understanding the nicotine better. Then you find a stronger connection to the nicotine that you would refuse. You wouldn't even allow it to go past your life without even reading something from the beginning because it's part of you.

00:16:13--> 00:16:19

The Quran becomes part of you. And that's why you need to aim for the aim is part of me part of my life.

00:16:22--> 00:17:04

It's the most important thing in my life, I can live a day without me opening something from the book of Allah azza wa jal or reading something from the poor and caring for that my brothers or my sisters, if there is an achievement that I want to achieve in the month of Ramadan is to connect myself to the book of Allah, the Quran, Allah Kareem, the one that Allah subhanaw taala revealed in the month of Ramadan. That's an achievement. And for that to be an achievement, aim for that to be an achievement for you that you achieve in the month of Ramadan, that you want to have a strong connection to the book of Allah. Because that very moment, there you have a strong connection to the

00:17:04--> 00:17:08

book of Allah, then you have a strong connection to Allah subhanaw taala

00:17:09--> 00:17:33

then you'll have a very strong connection to Allah. And sometimes we even ask ourselves that question, why do I feel disconnected from Allah azza wa jal? Why do I feel that disconnection from Allah, it is because you're disconnected from the book of Allah and your connection to Allah is the Quran connect yourself to the Koran you'll find yourself connected to Allah subhanho wa Taala naturally by default

00:17:35--> 00:18:12

naturally or by default, but again my brothers or my sisters Not only that, I want to read the Quran again and perfect Marisa ation of the poor allocating which is also an obligation upon you that when you read up on again, you read the way the problem homosassa libretto, you recite the Polonica in the way the problem homosassa reciting it, but I also want to understand the Quran, Allah Kareem owner enjoy the words of Allah zolgensma when I read them or recite them, I understand them, I'm living them. I'm living the Quran not only reading the Quran,

00:18:13--> 00:18:17

live the Chronicle in heaven offers these days really live the

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

most of us read the full article in every article, but rarely of us that does that live the dream? living the American dream, how do you live the American dream is when you start understanding the Quran, Kareem you start understanding the words of Allah subhana wa tada it's not connecting yourself to the words of ally Zilla? Did you start connecting yourself to the verses that Allah Subhana Allah mentions in the Koran again, he say you become part of that verse.

00:18:46--> 00:19:02

You are part of the verse. You are part of the commandment of Allah azza wa jal, you are part of the orders of our laws have had our data you are part of the stories that lots of parallel data is mentioned in the Chronicle. You are part of the actual problem.

00:19:04--> 00:19:12

Though when you read something in the economy or thinking about upon yourself, you are reflecting upon yourself now thinking of someone else.

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

And that's a disease that we have

00:19:16--> 00:19:48

an issue that we have, that whenever we have some hero, or we watch a movie, we'll always start detecting ourselves and imagining ourselves that we are the hero. I want to be the hero. But when it comes to the Dean of Eliza's origin, when Allah subhanaw taala mentions the believers when Allah subhanaw taala mentions the prophets and the messengers, what Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that great people in the past, we start thinking of them, we don't even reflect upon ourselves and say, You know what, I want to be in their shoes.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

I want to be on their status. I want to be in their position, we start thinking of someone else. But when it comes to the start thinking of ourselves,

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

I want to be this rich man. I want to be this famous person. I want to be this influential person. But when it comes to the athlete, it's him. It's her. No, I want to be him. I want to be the first one that enters the agenda. I want to be from amongst us, Allah subhanho wa Taala never ever allowed to experience in the hellfire. I want to be the person that makes the most when it comes to pleasing Allah azza wa jal. I want to be that righteous person. I want to be that person. I want to be the one that pleases allies. I want to reflect upon myself.

00:20:33--> 00:20:36

So when you read the Quran, the Quran live the Quran came

00:20:37--> 00:20:44

in enjoy the words of Allah azza wa jal and be part of the action that Allah subhanaw taala mentions in the Quran, Allah Kareem.

00:20:46--> 00:20:51

Imagine, and contemplate and ponder that you it's not them, it's me.

00:20:52--> 00:20:56

When he talks about the people of the paradise

00:20:57--> 00:21:24

prepared for them in the paradise, the happiness that Allah subhanaw taala speaks about the people of the paradise the joy that the people the paradise are experiencing, start imagining that you It's you that in the paradise, you are the one that is talking about your other ones, Allah subhanho wa Taala is making mention of Allah subhana wa tada is mentioned that it's you. It's not them, I want to be them.

00:21:26--> 00:21:33

But that will only happen when you connect yourself to the book of Allah, not disconnecting yourself from the book of Allah.

00:21:35--> 00:21:37

Take it, take upon yourself.

00:21:38--> 00:22:16

Take it take as an obligation upon yourself. In the month of Ramadan in sha Allah, I'm going to read the article and recite the Quran. According to the wild Mohammed Solomon also understand that I want to live the dream, not only read the Quran, I want to live the dream. I want to be part of the action that Allah subhanaw taala mentions in the Quran, I want to be part of the story. I want to be part of the believers, I want to be part of the companions, I want to be part of the disciples, I want to be part of them. I want to be part of the successful people that Allah subhanaw taala mentions, and

00:22:18--> 00:22:19

I want to be part of them.

00:22:20--> 00:22:52

It's me, connect yourself. And that's why my brother, my sister, take it as a responsibility. As an objective. As I go for you in the month of Ramadan, that every single day, you understand one page, one page from the chronically one page. So you read 10 2031, or two or three observed every single day. But every single day, I'll be also understanding one page of the Chronicle.

00:22:53--> 00:23:05

I'll also be understanding one page of the Chronicle I'll be understanding one full page by the end of the month of Ramadan at least understood or understood at least one chapter of the Quran

00:23:06--> 00:23:25

or understood one full chapter from the Holy Book of Allah subhanaw taala. For that my brothers and my sisters, let us prepare ourselves for the month of Ramadan by connecting ourselves to the Quranic calendar was revealed in the month of Ramadan. And that should be

00:23:26--> 00:23:30

or should happen right now. not later than wait for the day

00:23:32--> 00:24:00

or the beginning of Ramadan to be announced and committed and to be announced. No, you should be preparing for that for now. You should be getting yourself prepared for the month of Ramadan from now, you should be preparing yourself to connect yourself to Nepal Arnica aim for the month of Ramadan prior to the month of Ramadan right now. So if you want to start with something started tomorrow, tomorrow I opened up a resort in the Chronicle understanding some verses from the Quran

00:24:01--> 00:24:17

and start building up on it until you reach to the day of Ramadan. And the beginning of the month of Ramadan, you are ready to start opening the book of Allah azza wa jal to start understanding every single verse that you read, if not half of what you read, if not 10% of what you read,

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

and will lie My brothers or my sisters. When you connect yourself to the dream, you find yourself so close to Allah subhanaw taala

00:24:27--> 00:24:36

you'll find yourself at a level that you've probably never ever experienced before you start tasting that beautiful, sweet taste.

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

You start feeling a different feeling that you've never ever felt before. You'll have that sentiment that you've never ever encountered before. You feel that you know what I'm really connected to. I feel that connection to Allah, how many times were even asked ourselves that question or pray faster, keep away from the harem but I don't feel that real connection to Allah when you read the Quran again.

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

You connect yourself to the product and then you start feeling the true a real connection to Allah subhanaw taala so I asked a lot of Zoda to make this from amongst those who listen to me and act upon what they're listening here and they connect themselves to the Quranic minion of Allah Subhana Allah, Masha Allah Allah in the South Africa want to go in I can obviously tonight is our last lesson

00:25:24--> 00:26:00

before the month of Ramadan insha Allah we will commence and we assume with the month of Ramadan, or the lessons after the month of Ramadan, so ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept from us all and ask Allah azza wa jal as he together to say to not to make us from amongst those that he gathers in paradise I'm in Europe anonyme So once again, this is our last lesson in sha Allah and we will start again after the month of Ramadan by one or two weeks. I'm sure most of you are on my SMS list. They all be informed and know exactly when the programs will stop.
