Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayidina Muhammad so you will only know Akron, a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. And welcome to the ICJ pre Iftar program. I'm really excited to be joining you today my name is Yasser can deal and in sha Allah during this month I will be trying to share with you thoughts and reflections concerning our relationship with the Holy Quran. Insha Allah Subhanallah today, I was thinking to myself, the first quarter of Ramadan is already over. It's leaving us with only three more weeks to go have endless blessings, mercy and utmost forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala and I asked myself, Where am I and the Quran and I
had to share with you this very beautiful Hadith. Our Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, learn how to recite Surah Al Baqarah for there is a blessing in it fie Habitica waterco hestra, or there's a sorrow in abandoning it. And it is unbearable for the idol or the magicians. In other words, a magician cannot harm a person that memorizes or recites into the bucket and he sets of Allah Allah you will sell them. The Quran will meet its companions on the Day of Resurrection. When his grave has opened for him in the form of appeal man, it will say to him, do you recognize me? He will say I don't recognize you. It will say or the Quran will say I am your companion the
Quran and Elsa hookah Al Quran, who kept you thirsty on hot nights or days and kept you awake at night. Every merchant benefits from his business and today you will benefit from your good deeds. He will be given dominion in his right hand and eternity in his left and they will be placed on his head a crown of dignity and his parents will be closed with priceless garments, the like of which they have never seen in this world. They will say why have we been closed with this? It will be sad because your son or child used to recite the Quran.
Then it will be set to him recite and ascend into degrees of paradise. That cannot work if you Marathi will Jana and he will continue to ascend so long as he recites either at a fast pace or a slow pace. Now, do you understand? The words are the gems in these words? These words are filled with canoes or gems and I'd like to share with you the first gem. Whoever memorizes, recites or even listens to a Bakara in his own. Neither shaytaan can harm him, nor can it come anywhere near him. Neither can a magician higher harm him as well.
This is the first time in the words of our beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Sudeten Bacara is a must, or it's a necessity in the life of every believer or every Muslim. The second gem that I'd like to share with you, Al Quran will be your inter cedar, it will meet you at your grave on the day you get resurrected and tell you I am your companion. I'm your friend. When we say the word friend or companion, what does it what does it mean to you? What does it say? It means what a friend is somebody who's always with you. Right? We always used to get together.
When was the last time you met your friend.
I'm reminding you and myself. In case the Quran is not in the circle of your close friends, you need to start refunding Quran, starting from today in this very blessed month. And you have to keep this friendship as an eternal friendship a friendship that you keep forever insha Allah till the day you meet him subhanaw taala and it tells you I'm the one who made you thirsty for when we recite the Quran what happens our throats would start drying up even when we talked how long and I kept you awake for you used to stand up to memorize or recite or pray reciting the Quran. And every merchant benefits from his word business or trade. And he used to do this what used to read and recite for
who for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Okay, so today your trade is successful, right? You're going to see the fruits or the benefit of your reciting the Quran and the dunya. And he is given dominion in his right hand and eternity in his left basically you enter Jannah forever clause, that's it. There's no more hardship, no more work. It's in Jana forever. And you get crowned with a crown. But it's not any crown. It's not a crown of gold or diamonds or a crown of pearls or God know whatever it is that's so precious on this life. It's the crown of the people of Allah. Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala the people of the Quran Al Quran, what a better crown to be crowned with
SubhanAllah. And then his parents get closed with clothing, that if the people of the earth gathered all their wealth, to purchase clothes and this beauty, they would not be able to and then his parents ask why are we close with these clothes? And he said, because your child's reciting the Quran. And this is the third gem that we have to think about.
If you're memorizing or even reciting the Quran is the biggest form of bitter or fulfilling your duties towards your parents. Teach your kids the Koran, so that you may be clothed with garments of dignity on the day you meet him, instilled in them make it a habit that they read, even if it's only a couple of A's, every single day. Whatever you instill in them today is going to be something that's normal, just like eating or sleeping or you know, you know, whatever it is reading or going to school, it just becomes a habit. So must the Quran be in the lives of your children and yourselves as well? And the Hadith continues as for the one who recites and keeps ascending as he
recites you're correct where Turkey until he reaches the last Surah Surah to NAS and he says, mineralogy, neti oneness, and all of a sudden, he finds himself in the presence of a Habib now, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who, because this color says says what the scholars I'm sorry, see what they say that the levels of Jannah are the same as that of the verses of the Quran. So you come on that day of judgment, and you recite and recite and ascend in a sense Takara or Takara, or Taki, with a taki until you reach the very first companion of the Quran. Salatu was Salam, and you are in His presence. What's more rewarding than that? I remind you and myself to have that strong
connection with the Quran, at least for 20 minutes, 1520 minutes, it's not that much. Think about it. How many minutes do we have every day, especially in Ramadan. And make sure you continue with this after Ramadan if you can do this every single day, for 30 days in sha Allah, you will be able to continue make sure that you you know either do it with a friend or with your children with your spouse, somebody a companion, someone who will encourage you and help you keep on you know, keeping this habit with you. This is the month of transformation. This is the month where people change Subhanallah they become closer and they start habits that helped them in sha Allah to breach the
light, like the highest levels of Jannah now I ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us from the people of the Quran mean Al Quran will has said to the people that he select specifically to be one reciters those who enter insha Allah from the doors of those who recite the Quran and memorize the Quran. Okay, and I ask Allah subhanaw taala to be from the ones who what are told a Quran we're talking, read and ascend in your levels in Jannah Europe Insha Allah, I ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless us all and our families in this holy month Europe, and may you see the fruits of your reciting the Quran, in your lives, in your in your homes in your children and your responses in sha Allah.
May Allah subhanaw taala accept your fasting may accept your reciting the Quran. May He accept your standing in the middle of the night and asking Him to forgive us Europe. And may you all have a very blessed Ramadan insha Allah and as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
