Beware of calendars that set aside a time called “end of suhoor” (or imsaak) differently from the time of Fajr. They contradict the Quran which says: “Eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night)” [2:187]. They also contradict the Sunnah and the practices of the companions from all of which suhoor ends exactly at Fajr with the following allowances:

1) If someone doubts if the Fajr is out or not, he can still eat until he is certain.

2) If someone is already eating when the Fajr appears and he hears the Fajr azaan while on his meal, he can complete his meal before putting away the bowl as stated clearly in a hadith.

Also, Fajr is best determined visually from its description by the Messenger as “that which comes with a tinge of redness” [Abu Dawud]. Only visual observation can guide one to know what adjustment to make to the forecasts on phone apps which are generally more sensitive than the naked eyes and can serve only as a guide and are not precisely acurate – especially for Subh. Beware!

Lessons from the Tafseer of Dr Faadil

Lessons from Dr Faadil Al Imam Tafseer today

Dr Faadil Al Imam حفظه الله ورعاه methodology of Tafseer is unique as many others scholars of Sunnah in Southwest.
His Tafseer is always interactive.

It is not allowed to say someone reveals Qur’an, this act is peculiar to Allâh. So the popular saying that in Yorùbá language “aṣọ Qur’an ká lẹ” to mean reading whole Qur’an is not permissible

Those Alfa reading Qur’an for jala I purposes is evil in two ways. Evil of statement and action.
Evil of action in the sense:
Reading the Qur’an in portions
Reading it by different people at once and this is against teaching of Islam where Allâh asked us to listen to Qur’an when it is being recited

Different between أنزل and نزّل is that former means that Qur’an was revealed at once while latter means it was revealed little by little. نزّل usage is specific to Qur’an as other heavenly revealed books were revealed at once thus they are أنزل

It is erroneous to say aṣọ Qur’an kalẹ as common with people of bid’ah Alfas. Same to those reading it so no one can sọ Qur’an ká lẹ

Both ké and ká of kewu are correct against the popular saying that we ké kewu not ká kewu

Qur’an learning enhances brain

Learning Qur’an and religious knowledge should be priorities of all Muslims

It is better to address Arabic as
Language of Qur’an
Language of Muslim
Language of Islam
By this many people hearts will be attracted to learn it

You can’t reach 10% of Islam with learning recitation of Qur’an. It is never late to learn Qur’an recitation and its meanings.

You can’t recite Qur’an in another language besides Arabic.

Ramadaan in Lockdown

AlhamduliLlaah that we are blessed to witness the first day of Ramadaan, may Allaah preserve us to witness more to come.

I want to talk to you about a great opportunity which you have in this Ramadaan which you might never have again till you meet Allaah

A lot of people have been complaining since the inception of the lockdown that they are idle and have nothing to do, people have resorted to things that never imagined they could do before just because there is enormous time with nothing to do with it. If you don’t mind I have a suggestion. Alas it is utilising this time in ibadaat,  I have never witnessed a Ramadaan that has such a great amount of free time in my life, let utilise this time to do various ibadaat and recite the Quran a lot.

Imam JalaluDeen As-sayuti in his book Al-itqaan fi ulumil Quran mentioned a narration from ibn Abbaas that the letters in the Quran is 300k+ , so imam sayuti mutliplied this figure by 10 due to the hadith of the prophet that says anyone who recite the Quran get 10 rewards for each letter he utters , so he arrived at above 3.6 million which is the least reward a person would acquire for completing the recitation of the Quran, now imagine someone debit your bank account with such money, imagine how happy you would be, now imagine again you working for such reward and depositing it in your bank of hasanaat .

The gist does not end here, in another report , the prophet said the rewards of deeds are multiplied by 10 in Ramadaan, so multiply this 3.6 million by 10 we have 36 million, imagine amassing that in just a month, Allaahu Akbar. This is for someone who completed one , what about those who completed two, three, four, five, or those who complete a whole Quran daily.

Lastly, we should note that this is just the least you get when you recite the Quran with ikhlas and concentration, but the more you are engrossed in this recitation and you fulfil the rites of  Quran recitation the more your reward, so you might be getting 100 and not 10 for each lettters if you recite the Quran correctly , hence your reward would exceed 360 million and above.

My dear Muslim brethren, let strive towards this in this blessed month of Ramadaan ..

How to complete recitation of the Quran in Ramadaan.

Before subhi 2 pages and 2 pages after = 4

Before dhur  2 pages and 2 after = 4

Before Asr 2 pages and 2 after = 4

Before magrib 2 pages and 2 pages after = 4

Before ishaa 2 pages and 2 pages after = 4

Everything summed up together is 20 which makes a juz of the Quran, the Quran has 30 juz , If you can stick to this format till the end of Ramadaan, you would finish one juz a day for 30 days which means you are able to complete a full recitation.

For anyone who wants to recite more than that, then multiply the figure by 2 ,i.e 4 pages before and after every solawaat which is 40 all together , hence you complete 2 Quran .

Baarakallaahu feekum
