Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَىٰ وَالْفُرْقَانِ
(Qur’ān 02:185). ‘Shahru Ramađāna Al-Ladhī ‘Unzila Fīhi Al-Qur’ānu Hudan Lilnnāsi Wa Bayyinātin Mina Al-Hudá Wa Al-Furqān’, ‘The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion.’ Sadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm.

Tonight insha’Allah the month of Ramadan starts. May it be Mubarak for everyone! It is a month of goodness insha’Allah. It is the month of worship. People see in this holy month how it is to live with worship. They both do their worship and live their normal life. Some think that when you are a [practicing] Muslim or when you pray, it will be hard for you to work. On the contrary, it will be of more Barakah and it will be more beautiful.

Allah ﷻ gave worship as a gift for people themselves. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is not in need of your fasting, prayer or worship. He ﷻ is not in need of it at all. You are in need of it. Mankind are in need of doing their worship. If people do it, they get stronger. They get stronger both spiritually and physically.

Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gave everything in this world for people. In addition to that, He ﷻ gave beautiful orders. Who does them attains happiness in Dunya and Akhirah. His works become better and more beautiful. It becomes conformed with your [cause of] creation. Because Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says, “I created mankind and Jinn to worship.” ‘وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ’, ‘Wa-ma Khalaqtu l-Insa wal Jinna illa li-Ya’budun’, ‘And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.’ (Qur’ān 51:56). They were created to worship. If the person completes it, he will be at peace then. If not, he will wander around limping as a cripple. His life will pass like that and then everything will be hard for him. No matter how good he says he is, this is a great shortcoming. The greatest shortcoming is not doing the worship.

May Allah ﷻ make this month Mubarak! Insha’Allah we will make Khatm Sharif of the Qur’an every day insha’Allah. We will start from today because this year Ramadan is 29 days. Originally, they should sight the moon. But of course it is out of necessity because no one knows from where the moon rises and where it sets. Also, Sha’ban Sharif was 30 days anyways. After 30 days, the first day [of Ramadan] must be tomorrow insha’Allah. The 1st of Ramadan is tomorrow. We will start from tomorrow. As the task of moon sighting is a Sunnah, it is better if they sight it. But sometimes Sha’ban Sharif is 30 days. So tomorrow is the 1st day of Ramadan. May it be Mubarak upon everyone insha’Allah!

As we said, we will start the Qur’an Khatm from today insha’Allah. And tonight insha’Allah there is Tarawih. Tarawih is one of the beauties of the month of Ramadan. People gather and hang out together in Jama’ah. It gives a more beautiful atmosphere. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gives Barakah in the Jama’ah and in gathering. May Allah ﷻ make it Mubarak for all of you! May it be means for goodness. May He ﷻ protect us all from these calamities insha’Allah. May He ﷻ give strength to our Iman insha’Allah. 

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
