And before I start my hotbar I just want to say that as you see, this section on the mustard is dedicated, whereas my left hand side here is dedicated for people who are received their vaccination and what we're trying to increase the number of people on this side of our getting their vaccination. So the we expand that a little bit more and more and more and I hope we shall our community by our by mid of Ramadan, or so that will have most of us vaccinated, so we don't need to leave a space. So please, if you have a concern if your vaccine because I know some of you guys took vaccination for a while, but yeah,

I don't know how we're going to go about that in the future. I would love and Ramadan to see us praying next to each other without any space if the overmold whelming and the vast majority of people are vaccinated hamdulillah and according to science and the doctors or advisors it is a safe protocol that we have right here.
And same thing with the sisters as well.
Ramadan is coming soon, inshallah tada expected most likely to be Tuesday will be the first day of Ramadan.
So we will be assigning the moon in the night of Monday, which is Sunday night. And we will basically also encourage people to look for the moon on Monday night as well as tomorrow because it's a sin net to site the moon. And one other thing that I want to say today my hotbar wonder my bond comes with is a very
important concept or an act of worship that we are all very familiar with when it comes to the month of Ramadan.
Besides Yeah, which is read the Quran and I love that I would love for us to make that commitment right now that we will increase our relationship with the Quran. Some people I don't like it when some people said oh this is hypocrisy why only Ramadan you know the Quran, you know and hamdulillah they know Quran Ramadan, what do you want them to bancor, and Ramadan and Ramadan. I'm happy that people reconnect with the Quran Ramadan and read and Ramadan and take advantage of it Allah Subhana Allah is not for nothing. When he said to us, I would have let him in the shape and the regime shahara Ron Oban and Lady Zilla v Hill
it's in the month of Ramadan. Well, Ron was sent down of a Muslim Dyneema Muhammad and an obeah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that sort of Ibrahim the scripture of Ibrahim was actually given to Ibrahim in the first day from Oban fi overlay in a few Ramadan. And in the bass Allah Lhasa lamb also in the same Hadith he said in the first night, Ibrahim received the Scripture and musar received the Torah on the sixth from Yvonne and II sorry, salaam received an Indian first time you received it was in the 13th from a band with a lotta Tasha no drama band wanna be you know, Mohammed Salah Salam Al Quran revealed to him on the 24th of Ramadan. The first revelation came to the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam every year gibreel come and Ramana from avant and review the whole on top or on with the process Allah, whatever, whatever call it he received so far. So the first year, second year, third year imagine every year the chapters that they review together is much bigger. And also in the end of the process our limbs live the last year of his life. He reviewed a Quran with him twice and Allah Islam as reported kind of set up as a project Rahim Allah give a lot of attention to the recitation of the Quran during the month of Ramadan. You can Yoko Ono or NFS Salatu was a rehab they used to read Quran in the Salah and outside the Salah. They will make
heartwell Quran during the salah and outside the surah will Canada shadow the Allah Anna she read in the must have after fudger until the sun comes up then she will close the must have and she'll go take a nap after words that are the lower and how what are other what can we have going on in Ramadan who are short on time and I'm Yvonne is the month of reading and reciting the Quran and feeding the poor helping the needies offerings in charity to those who are in need of it. And remember him Allah like man he can others they will even stop their classes in teaching Hadith and Sunnah and they will only focus on reciting the Quran or reviewing the Quran.
Today, you know I will give you two tips one the first one is very short and the second one is the focus of my Kadima which is how something tips that will help you to connect to the Quran much much better during this year in sha Allah tala. When it comes to the citation, the tip that I have for you, you will not be able to be serious about resigning for under Ramadan if you don't now, and I mean that literally now you have a plan for a specific time, every day that when you're going to read Quran
if you're going to just leave it for whenever is not going to work.
But from now you have to say you know what, I have 30 minutes before I go to bed, I will read Quran I will listen to the Quran. If I don't read Arabic I will listen to the Arabic And I will look into the English translation and I will go with that. You know if I if I read Quran hamdulillah I will read every day after Salatin fighter after war after each Salah whatever you want to do, but from now have a specific time and commit to that time. And any extra time that you have, that's a bonus. But you have from now to decide when you going to be everyday reading the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And for our sisters who may be during their menses you still read the Quran. Having an menses
should not stop you from reciting the Quran should not stop you from listening to the Quran should not stop you from holding even the English translation at least with Arabic texts to read from it. Even though I personally believe that even holding the most have during your menses is permissible. And there is no proof to forbade you from such thing. But the point is do not let a day pass by during this month without reading or reading Quran at the tip and with regard to the citation. The other tip in regard to enjoying the Quran and I mean by
That getting connected with the book of Allah. Then Allah Subhana Allah abode Kitab and Enza now Whoa, la como Baraka, Leah dembo iottie we have seen this blessed book to you, your Mohammed and to all of you, you are Muslims. So you will reflect upon the verses of the Quran, the reflections, it means that personal connection between you and the book of Allah, I fell I attend the bonell Khurana Peruvian UK, Fallujah, why they don't Allah Subhana Allah said, then do they not reflect upon the Quran?
And the reason people don't reflect upon the Quran, because their hearts are sealed. Yeah, and he they are, you know, they have no interest.
And the tip that I have for you, and it is an interesting one. But if you apply it, and I know it's hard to apply to every time, but at least get used to it, which is, don't just let things go. And I mean by that, when you read a verse, and there is a word that you don't understand, or a phrase that you don't understand, or it didn't make sense to you were can did not, you know, it doesn't sound I could understand what's the point of this phrase? Or why the structure of the sentence like that, why that story saying that? Why this is in the middle? When you have this Why? And you have this question. Don't just ignore it and move on. No, go and investigate, go and learn. And it hamdulillah
today, you know, in your cell phone, you can download, you know, if you read in the Arabic for text, but even Quran for that operand, all these words that you're not familiar with what it means you can easily look it up even some of the Messiah have the hub on the side, some of the way to understand what this word. So if you read for example, Zen harira, what some heavy rum means. Don't just let it go. How many times you have read.
how many times that you read an article? Oh, but what is enough, actually? Oh, God. Don't just let it go. Don't Slide it. No, not mushiya let go.
Now, go on. Look what that word means. And write it down if you have to. For Nia, what's for me, is for me? Well, I had the day he told me ill food. Food. I said, talking for lunch. It said no. For me, I need to thumb. The garlic. You know, just don't let things feed my muscle. What's my muscle?
When you read in the Quran,
or anything the issue of what this word means? mineral jawara Hema himachali bien. What's mocha Libby. So whenever you read a word that, you know,
what's that? What this descriptions of because some of these words we're not familiar with, in the data layer down here, one? Oh, I didn't know that. You're gonna have a Zune that the Day of Judgment, how it should happen. You don't know, ask learn unhandled access, you have a lot of access to knowledge, how any any Donald hat and how handsome you are, how and and the unknown he had
a limit allow you to let the lighter have like further to how do I can have some more hair or mineral hat for her daughter hair abadia. So what my point is, you know, and this may be this particular point, a lot of people are familiar with the Arabic language have to pay attention to it more than the one who read the translation, because the translation gives you the meaning already. And you don't need sometimes you'll find those who read the translation understand even the text better than some of the people who read that Arabic text who don't understand these words. But there is another thing that you need to ask yourself also, when you read the verse, and there is something
interesting in the verse, and something making you alert. Why is this what that exactly means? Why the order is this way? Just don't ignore that, you know, white pop comes on your head. And be careful when I say raising these questions. I don't mean that you object or you make your own Tafseer or your own interpretation of the Quran. No, it means that you go back and learn. This is an opportunity for you to go and take a symbol book of the field like that summary of urban Kathy rahimullah available English available in Arabic And you ask, you know, surveyor, a great Tabby, he read this verse in the Quran. We're on
panel with Allison in our software our Alma Waterman.
femen had del beta we are
both habima women
in law hashtag early, highly diverse. Indeed, the health of Safa and Marwa are among the symbols of Allah. So whoever performs the Hajj pilgrims or minor pilgrims or Umrah let them it is no harm for them to go between a softball model. So, this is where said upside and suffer or miroir is what MOBA. What can you do? Is it It's okay. It's it is optional. Because Allah says there is no harm for you to go between there is no harm. It means you can do it and you can leave it when I show the aligner has entered that car, but you're wrong.
That's not what the verse means. Then he said what it means because I've been given this photo. And what did that means what that means when a lot larger Holly, she said no. This is because these two hills used to have two idols on the top of them in the past. And the top of a surfer, there is er, SF, and in a model na ala to idols to basically idols that used to be worshipped by the people and the Arab at that time. So when they used to go between a suffer and in Matawan, they didn't do it because it was from the practice of Ibrahim, they did it as a form of respect to these two idols that did on the top of these two hills. So when Islam came and tell them, you're gonna still
continue to go between the mountains, the Sahaba said, Yes, but we don't do any shark. How can we go between the two mountains, and the only thing in their head that go in between the two mountains was for honoring the idols? And Allah said, No, it is not because of the idols. It is because of reviving the Sunnah Ibrahim alayhis salam and his wife her job when she went between the two. So there's no harm even though this is in the past used to be the practice of the coffee shop. But today, it's the practice of the muslimin. So even though it was something wrong in the past, but now we're doing it the right way, for the right reason. So that's what the verse means. It nothing
wrong. He went and he
said, whenever you pass by verse, I give you an example. So you kind of, you know, understand exactly what we talked about him. One of the verses that it's interesting, and I almost read this verse, I can guarantee you a lot of you read this versus, like me, maybe also they have the same questions that I have. Allah, Allah told us about the story of the Zayed who passed by a village and he said how can almost Montana Yeah, and he This village is destroyed it and Camilla bring it back to life than a las panatela when this man went to a cave or place he slept, and also not to put him into death for how long 100 years, then He resurrected him, you know the story. So when He
resurrected him Allah told him how long you been
then he said the day half a day he said you been dead for 100 years.
Shark That's right. Now Allah will show and demonstrate is what has power. Then he said, look at your food and your drink. Such exactly the same way your left
look there to your donkey
is dissolved by the earth. My question is when a lot of them look at your food it's there it's as fresh as you got it.
Is that a proof that he died for 100 years
having his food so fresh and look that actually support what he claimed that it is only a day or a half a day?
you got the point. You want to let all them okay look at the fruit and the drink is so fresh.
This is came right after him you've been 100 years that so the question I always ask myself what's the point? This does not really help the point that the last my thought I was trying to make to him which is you've been for 100 years that
and now just brought you back? It should have been I would think that my because absolutely that's that question is not to object to Allah is to discover how ignorant I am.
Be careful. This question is not to question god it to discover how limited you are. So for me my limited knowledge will say it should have a start. Look at
How did your donkey is? And I'm bringing back? Why would he start with the, with this food? And what do you do? You go back to this books of Tafseer. And you will find the know the first smart person in the world. And there's a lot of smart people and before you raise these questions and answer these questions that you have in your, and I will guarantee you, whatever you come up with, if it is a legit, if something makes sense, you know, you will find that this is something been addressed by scholar before you will be amazed. And uh, personally, I never raised the question about something unless I found an answer in the books of tafsir. And people talked about before
modern or old scholars. So you'll find that Mr. hemella talk and they said Allah subhanaw taala actually, when he told him look at your food and your, you know, drink first is to prepare him for the next just to calm him down a little bit. He said, Look, isn't that your food you drink? Yes. Now look to the other side and see how your donkey which is show you how long you've been dead, this completely been dissolved by the earth. So whenever I said that, and another word I lost my thought I want him to come down and to start the conversation with him. Then after that, he said to him, look to that donkey, and how there is another point and LMS said also now this man will eat the food
and the drink will consume the drink and would eat the food that's right. And he will use that donkey to travel on That's right.
Allah subhanaw taala did not make because of the food was dissolved. It will be dissolved by the bacteria by whatever Yana insects by Earth whatever came and ate it. Can you imagine if Allah bring this back to him in front of him and bring whatever that food back to him? If it's a meat or if it is a fruit, you bring it back to the way it was seeing the process? Question, would you touch that food and eat it?
You'll be grossed out.
When you see the reverse in front of you, you might not desire that food anymore. And Allah subhanaw taala one that meant to have the food and to enjoy it. And not to think about that. But when it comes to the donkey, he revival, okay, you can write it. It's actually America. Also Allah Subhana Allah wants to demonstrate to him two things, another point to learn and I said in that order that Allah says, When you say I he put him to dead for 100 years, then He resurrected him. The question will be, can my body be preserved for 100 years like that? Yes, if Allah subhanaw taala can preserve the food and the drink, which is will be dissolved in no time much faster than your body, almost
whether it can preserve your body as well fresh for 100 years and whatever amount of years. And if your body dissolved by the earth like the donkey, he can bring it back. So either way is more capable. He's capable of keeping it as a test and he can capable off returning back the way it was.
It's amazing means now the way I read this verse is completely different than before.
Is that connection with the Quran? But if I just let it go and never think about it,
I wonder the question it also has some sort of power to Moosa, it can be I mean, okay, I Moosa what is in your hand yamasa
It's interesting, what's in your hand? yamasa what Moses says,
It is my cane that I use. I used to what lean on it, and with it, you know, beat down branches. For my sheep's and I have other issues were asked my side hustle. Allah did not ask him about all this. He just asked him what is in your hand? The answer you would assume it's a cane.
But he didn't say that. He says it is my cane. And what I use it for. And and the question is what even the question first of all, wireless wonderla asking him what's in your hand.
No matter him Allah said, It is because of the surprise. can imagine Mousavi said I'm all the sudden hears a lot talking to him. That's so big deal.
It's like when I meet you and I talk to you and somebody I remember any. Just to give you an example of how just to make it.
You can you can picture the concept. Sometimes you see somebody you you care for so much and I can't believe I'm talking to this person and this person. If he tells
directly the order you will be kind of shocked. But if you start the conversation, hey, what's this? You know, where do you from to short talk? We call this right? Just to break that ice. What do you have in your hand? He said this nice thing. And also the alumni said, that is another reason why he asked him what is this in his hand. Because this came soon we'll turn to a snake.
So he wanted to be very aware that this is a cane and this is my cane that I'm so familiar with. It's not another cane, or something else different than yet. No, no, this is the one I've been using all this years, I know what I'm using for and all of a sudden turn listening. But if this composition did take place in the beginning, and the cane turned to snake, he might thought it is something else. Maybe it is a cane that other than mine, or I didn't even notice the cane before. But unless we're going to want to build them
it's amazing when you start looking into the Quran and ask yourself these questions, your relationship with the Quran I guarantee you will be completely different. Why would Allah use this example? Why Allah said that this dunya is like water, what's the connection? And start trying to explore that the the recipe for disaster when it comes to the dobro or is when you read the Quran and your goal is just the end?
You know, just I don't care I don't use Okay, I don't have time to do that. You just slide it the valley Kenny Latta co parent the who's who has the Share it just not like you're just passing by try at least to have some of I'm not sure I know we cannot do that all the time. But at least Abramova and make sure that at least once a week maybe once a day maybe some any try if there is something got your attention
Don't let it go just go investigate. And I'll be more than happy to answer your question. If you ever want
to hold on to my stock or line you Welcome to stop here
hamdu lillahi wa salatu salam ala Nana via by the who have bad My dear brothers and sisters there is many points on it. Remember, there's a whole untitled by give about reflections in the Quran and how to the art of reflection in the Quran. And even I have a course online if you ever interested to take that you can do as well. You know about the art of reflection, there are certain points that you can follow and, and guidelines you can have that will help you even if you don't speak a single word in Arabic, you still can connect because the miracle of the Quran is not limited to the wording It is also the wording and that, that the meanings of the Quran, prepare yourself from a bond and
our needs from us to give it a full attention or and require from us to give it full respect. Honoring, honoring the Quran is not just by kissing it, it's cover. I don't know Quran is not like, by you know what, you know, carrying and and putting it in a higher place. That's excellent and important. You know, what's more important than that, when I put on is so high in our heart, one of Quran is so respected and all our life, what an honor, we feel that we live by it, and we need it. And when the day goes by, and I didn't read anything from it, I feel like there is something seriously missing in my life.
And unfortunately, a parent is not today, the center of attention,
even into the level of the people that we think of them that they are the best in the society and the community
is not the central of our attention. People distracted from the thing that the Quran speaks about the most.
Look at our interest.
Look at what we focus on today. And look at what Al Quran focusing on today.
Compare, look at what the poem always talk about and what we always talk about.
Which should be an alignment between us and the book of Allah.
Because those who live in this dunya according to the book of Allah, in nimisha salam give it very simple, he said just like a rope. Your whole you start from here, you end here here is agenda. And that's Rob, we'll take you to our agenda. You leave it you're lost.
If you ever saw some of these documented the documentary when people go in caves, there is a road that's right, you hold on to the rope or so people dive inside, there is a row. If you leave it, you lost. You don't know how to get out. That's the same thing.
I asked our last panel data to give that Zealand
interest and love for his book and to ask a las panatela to give us the ability to understand it, to comprehend it to reflect upon these verses to memorize it, to love it to live by it to honor it. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to give us the ability to recite the Quran day and night. And we asked our last panel to Allah to give that love for his book to us and to our family members.
