How do you build a relationship with the Quran in the month of Ramadan and then maintain it throughout the year? It's very common that after hearing a reminder or seeing someone else who has a wonderful relationship with the Quran, that we might feel motivated to also establish and develop a relationship with the Quran as well. And Allah subhanaw taala tells us and we have many reminders like this in the Quran. Yeah

00:00:26--> 00:01:11

Hala Deen man or smear all saw the room are all beautiful, what Turpan law Hello and welcome to flir Hoan Oh you who have believed persevere and endure and remain station and fear Allah subhanaw taala the boundaries of Allah so that you may be successful you have to persevere.

Allah commands us to persevere and endure because it's a key to success in everything. The Prophet sallallahu ISON told us that no one has been given anything greater than perseverance and patience. So how do we have an establish an enduring relationship with the Quran?

00:01:12--> 00:01:53

We know we want to connect and build that relationship, but we don't know where to start. For example, someone might ask, do I read the translation every single day? Or do I start reading and studying and Quranic Arabic? Do you start working on your reading fluency, your pronunciation? Sometimes we're so motivated, that we may try to work on all these examples at the same time, all these pathways, that we feel overwhelmed and then we might give up. There's a beautiful story about an elderly Palestinian woman. She did not know how to read but she decided at the age of 80. When her husband had passed away may Allah have mercy on him that she wanted to learn how to read and

00:01:53--> 00:02:36

even memorize the Quran. She attended first and second grade as a child. And so she therefore spent a few years learning to read and the very basic reading proficiency but when she finished the memorization of the Quran six years later, she describes that she felt the day she finished her memorization was the day she felt like a complete human being is a very interesting expression. She explained that she didn't feel the all of the year she had lived more complete and it was as though when she finished memorizing the Quran, she was born and you her advice is to never give up hope at the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala and the possibility for you to get closer to the Quran and to

00:02:36--> 00:03:17

change as a human being. Now we will share some tips very practical tips to begin your journey inshallah Tada. Number one make dua ask Allah. If you want to develop a relationship with the book of Allah, you must be a person of dua, you must be asking Allah for assistance. And we cannot expect to develop a relationship with the words of Allah subhanaw taala without seeking the help of Allah. Number two, determine your goals. When you're trying to determine where to start in your journey with the Quran, you need to identify certain things you need to identify your goals, and the motivation behind every single one of these goals. So it helps to write out what your goals are, and

00:03:17--> 00:03:56

to specify them. Start with your final goal in mind the goal of Jannah and then go back what's your goal until your last breath? And why do you want to have accomplished this goal? What do you want with the Quran? What do you envision of the future in your life as your relationship with the Quran before you pass away, and write out why this is your goal? Knowing your y as we have stated before, it's extremely helpful and it's important and establishes your sincerity. And that could be your anchor when things get tough when you start to struggle in your journey with the Quran. Number three, find a teacher. Now of course, it's not necessary that every single person has a teacher in

00:03:56--> 00:04:34

order to learn the Quran. It's not conditional. But when you do have a teacher, a qualified teacher, someone who actually knows how to recite and they teach you or someone who will help you with memorization, this will help you like nothing else. If you look locally and you don't find and you ask around and you have no teachers in your locality and you've actually tried your best, then look for other opportunities inshallah Tada. You can find many teachers online these days. One of the elderly scholars when he was asked about how to find a teacher or a mentor, he responded by saying, when the student is ready the teacher will appear meaning you will find a teacher and shall Latina

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

and make dua and ask Allah to send the best of teachers to you. Number four, start with the basics. The best way to learn a topic is to make sure the basics are mastered before you move on to what is considered more advanced. Sometimes this requires humility. You may be asked by a teacher for example, to start with, you know Elif better start with your basic letters and you're trying to work on your pronunciation. You may be

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

Joining a class that sometimes have younger students within these classes, and so those who have humility know that starting with the basics will help you follow the guidance of your teacher and inshallah Tada you will find yourself amongst the most successful of students.

Sometimes in life, you have more time, more flexibility, and other times you may be married or you may have children, so you cannot compare that stage to a previous stage of life.
