00:04:18--> 00:04:59

hamdulillah All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Throne and the master of all dominion. He lives he lifted up the skies and beautify the stars and constellations and he spread for the earth, and he made it a solid foundation. And he sends down the rain and blesses us with fruits and vegetation. And He created us from one man and woman, dividing us into tribes and nations. He preferred the children of Adam over the rest of his creation. And he sent to us His chosen Prophet, our source of salvation, he revealed to he revealed to us a book that is perfect beyond imitation

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

To Allah and Allah alone belongs our worship in our supplication. I remember an incident that happened with me in my first year when I was studying at the University of Medina. It was my first Ramadan in the blessing city of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I was a new student. And I would go recite Quran to my teacher to get the ages every single day. And the first day of Ramadan, I went to him and I took my turn in line. And I would always have a book with me when I waited My turn in line. But this was the first day of Ramadan. And my chef, may Allah bless and reward him and he has been teaching the Quran in the masjid of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam

00:05:41--> 00:06:22

for over 45 years of his life, my chef saw me with another book, and he politely closed it. And he said, Ramadan, the Koran only. I said, check. This book is actually about the Quran. It's about abrogation and operando is writing a book about a little more Quran back then I said, Sure. This is a book about the Quran. And he wagged his fingers at me. He pointed towards the robot. And he said, Mr. Malik used to teach them water over there. And when Ramadan would come, he would shut the books of Hadith. And he would open up the Quran and read nothing but the Quran.

00:06:23--> 00:07:06

I never forgot that incident. Even though To be honest, I was not able to live up to that, because I learned from them that the methodology of our early scholars, the Sahaba and Tabby rune, and the great imaams was that the month of Ramadan was a special month that is associated primarily with the Quran as the famous scholar abinitio hubzu. He said one Ramadan would come, he said, as soon as Ramadan comes all deeds, we stop them except feeding the hungry and reading the Quran. That's all that we need to do in this month, we feed the hungry and we open up the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:07--> 00:08:00

This month of Ramadan has been associated with the Quran, in the Quran itself. And in fact, even before Allah tells us about the fast he tells us about the Quran. Sha Ramadan it only occurs once in the Quran. By the way, once Allah mentions Ramadan by name in the Quran, and in this verse in Baccarat, what does Allah say, Sha Ramadan Allah, the NZ the female Quran, the month of Ramadan is the month that the Quran was revealed. Then in the second part of the paragraph, Allah says whoever is witnessing the month let him fast the month cm is mentioned after the Quran is mentioned. The primary association of Ramadan is with the Koran Shah Ramadan

00:08:01--> 00:08:55

Koren, wood le na si webinar Tim and alhuda well for corn in Anza. Now who feel a natural cutter in Tanzania who feel either Tim mubaraka multiple times in the Quran, three different occasions. Allah links are Milan and Layla Takada, he links it with the concept of reciting the book of Allah subhana wa Tada. So as we prepare for this month brothers and sisters, as we prepare for the month of Ramadan, let us put into our agenda that the primary purpose of this month the primary purpose is to be associated with the tilawat of the Quran, to read the Quran, to understand the Quran and to hear the Quran. It is mentioned that in this month, the angel Jubilee would come down every single night,

00:08:55--> 00:09:36

as I said, nomadic said and he would recite the Quran to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, every single night. He would recite the Quran to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself would stand up and read the whole Quran, her they've attempted it a man said once I visited the Prophet sallallahu ala he was setting them in the Knights of Milan, and he was praying to her God, so I stood beside him. And he began Surah Al Baqarah and he finished all of Baccarat and then he opened up through the other Emraan he finished other Emraan and then he opened up Surah 10. Nice up and he finished Surah Nisa and then he went into court. Can you

00:09:36--> 00:10:00

imagine? Bukhara are the Emraan and Nisa in one Raka. Of course this is his own personal prayer. So the law How do you sell him? He doesn't expect the rest of us to do that. But in his own life, what would he do? How much would he recite in that one rack I can you imagine five Jews or more in one urraca and that is why it is authentically narrated that even when Omaha thought about the alarm

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

One when He instituted the Torah we're Nakayama laid. He put over you've been kept in charge, and obey would recite from after Isha all the way up until budget whoever could do or do it whoever could do to rock out to Raka. But he has the institution of Torah where he let it go the entire night, and they would finish the recitation just enough time, the Sahaba said, we would rush back home for our salute, and then come back and pray fudger the entire night was dedicated to the tilawat of the Quran. It is narrated that the Sahaba would finish the Quran multiple times during the night, most of the Sahaba most of the Sahaba would read the whole Koran once a week outside of

00:10:41--> 00:11:21

Ramadan, once a week outside of Ramadan. That was their routine. However, in the month of Ramadan, they would increase this it is authentically reported that the famous Dabiri of portada batata would recite the Quran once a week outside of the month, in the month of Ramadan. Every three days he would finish one Hutton and then in the last 10 nights, he would recite one Koran every single night. So every three days for the first 20 then the last 10 he would dedicate the whole day and night and obviously brothers and sisters, we cannot do that. That's something beyond our but it's good to know that that's what they used to do, even if it's too high for us to do still the reality

00:11:21--> 00:12:02

of the relationship of the Sahaba into Iran with the Quran in this month of Ramadan is something that we should all be aware of. It is narrated that one of the students have shaffir said that I counted the number of times the amount of Shafi recited the Quran, and it was over 60 times in the month of Ramadan. He did 60 items in the month of Ramadan. Now obviously this is something again beyond what we can do, but still it is a reality of how they would recite the Quran. Dear brothers and sisters the month of Ramadan is the month of the Quran. It is primarily associated with the book of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah chose this month to reveal the Quran and Allah associated this month

00:12:02--> 00:12:48

with the book of the Quran. Therefore, as we come to this month, we should make it in our minds. Our intention should be that we prioritize this book in the authentic hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that on the Day of Judgment, the siyam of Ramadan, and the Koran will come and they will argue on behalf of a person. The CM will say Oh Allah, I made him tired at night so forgive him. And the Quran will say Oh Allah, I made him tired at night so forgive him. So Allah will forgive the person. So in the daytime, the fast makes us tired, and that's our shefa our forgiveness in the nighttime. The Quran should make us tired. We should be reciting the Quran every

00:12:48--> 00:13:28

single night as much as we can. It should be a part of our routine doesn't mean we don't recite during the day. But the point is we all should make an effort to cut back on our sleep during this month. Yes, sleep in the daytime if you need to, but at nighttime, spend some extra time put in the effort. Our schedules in Ramadan cannot be the same as outside of Ramadan. Our relationship with the Quran cannot be the same as outside of Ramadan. We need to put into our calendar, our schedules, what are the timings I will read the Quran how much I will be reading and we make sure that in sha Allah Allah we live up to this month this is the month of the Quran dear brothers and sisters let us

00:13:28--> 00:14:09

live up to this reality. Yes, we cannot do 60 items like a machete he said that Abu hanifa as well will do over 50 items in the month of Ramadan. We cannot do that that was the setup that was there Baraka in time it is unrealistic for me and you let's be honest with ourselves but Subhana Allah in all honesty, every one of us should aim for at least 100 Come on 100 and that's 20 pages a day. And to be honest, this is even putting the bar very low. To be very honest. If you read the Quran regularly outside of Ramadan, in Ramadan, you should be doing at least at least 234 items if you don't read the Quran outside rubberband, at least at least do one item and it is very possible to do

00:14:09--> 00:14:47

it's only 20 pages a day for 30 days. That's all 20 pages a day put it into your schedule five pages after fudger five pages after all put it into your schedule and insha Allah huzzah Allah when you put it into your schedule, it will be very realistically done. This is the month of the Quran. Let us make sure we live up to the realities of this month and let us demonstrate to Allah subhanho wa Taala that it is the month that we are showing Allah we love this book and we recite this book and we give the book The honor that it is due May Allah subhana wa tada bless me and you within through the Quran and make him make us of those who is verses they understand and applies halal and haram

00:14:47--> 00:14:52

throughout our lifespan. ask Allah forgiveness. He was will ask him for his love of food and the rock man

00:15:05--> 00:15:53

hamdulillah All praise is due to Allah the one and the unique, he alone It is who we worship, and is his aid that we seek. He is the Lord of the oppressed and the one who answers the door of the week. The question arises when it comes to this month of Ramadan, that should we prioritize the mere recitation or the listening, or the reading of the seed and to the board, what should be done? Yes, the Quran is there, but there's multiple angles, aspects of the Quran, we listen, we recite, and we read what should be prioritized in this month. Our scholars mentioned that this is the month primarily of the Tila of the Koran. It is the month primarily that is meant to be recited and also

00:15:53--> 00:16:28

to listen to his recitation. As for the to the board as for the contemplation indeed, that is a very noble goal, and it should be done as well. But this is the month primarily we dedicate to the actual recitation of the Quran. Why? Because the Quran cleanses the heart. The Quran softens the heart. The Quran is what purifies the inner soul and fasting purifies the outer body. So fasting and the Quran put together is what makes ramadhaan Ramadan. The purpose of Ramadan is what lalla Come on. Yeah, you are Latina. amanu coochie

00:16:29--> 00:16:30

coochie ballerina

00:16:31--> 00:17:17

that the purpose of Ramadan is taqwa how it stuck was achieved by fasting. And by reading the Koran fasting allows the body to attain taqwa fasting controls the body fasting makes us our courage, our eemaan our tawakkol increases and then reciting the Quran cleanses the inner soul, doing the tilawat cleanses our heart, so the fastest for the body. And the tilawat of the Quran is for the soul. Allah says in the Quran, lo Anza harder for Anna eligible. If the Quran came down to a mountain, the mountain would dissolve so our hearts have grown hard brothers and sisters, our hearts have grown hard. Over the course of all of these months and years, we have to soften our hearts we have to make

00:17:17--> 00:17:57

our hearts soft at the vicar of Allah subhana wa Tada. Therefore, the purpose of reciting the Quran and of listening to his recitation is to soften our souls and hearts and that is why the priority is in the tower. And then also in the listening of the Quran. There are two different acts of worship and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did both of them during this month, he would recite and juby would recite to him both of these deeds are done. So we should also put this into our schedule. If we're driving for work. If we have some time, then we should listen to the recitation of the Quran. And then as well for sure the primary action of worship is that we ourselves recite this book

00:17:57--> 00:18:36

guitar when unza nahu in a camo bow rockin This is a mobarak book that Allah subhana wa tada has revealed unto us so we need to show appreciation of the book and make sure that in this month, we dedicate plenty of time our primary action of worship during this month, the number one action of worship is that Allah will have the Quran and that hamdulillah these days we have the Quran on our phones and our apps just take it out and read it wherever we are Alhamdulillah the ease is there. It's so easy to recite the Quran so please brothers and sisters, my advice to myself in all of you sit down and have a schedule of tilawat have a schedule of tilava because when you have that

00:18:36--> 00:19:11

schedule when you have that dedication, that is when you will get one or two or three items done make sure you recite during the day a little bit and especially at night yes in our own Masjid will only have a tracker with a little bit that's because of COVID then you go home and sha Allah to Allah and you can recite the Quran on your own and if you're able to then the last third of the night wake up again before it's so fluid and then recite the Quran again. The tarawih prayers is nothing prayer as you know and you're allowed to hold the Quran in that nothing prayer is not a problem. If you read at home you can open them most have and recite in the Salah while holding on to

00:19:11--> 00:19:49

the most half or while holding on to your phone. It's not a problem it is authentically narrated that the Sahaba in Tiburon would do this if they hadn't memorized the Quran. So recite the Quran morning and evening and make sure in sha Allah who to Allah, we have given justice to his Why? Because on the Day of Judgment, we want siyam and we want the Quran to come and beg Allah to forgive us. We want the Quran to say oh my lord, I caused him to be tired at night, so forgive him and we want the siyam to say oh my lord, I caused him to be tired during the day so forgive him. This is the month of Mo Farah the month of Rama. If we turn to Allah and recite this book, then insha Allah

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

who to Allah, we will attain that Mo Farah and Rama Allah many dinefwr Aminu Allah if you had to meet them then it loves a Fatah wa Hammond. Illa for Raja when are they in it?
