YMP Ramadan Series: Open Circle #4 Hook Up With The Quran

May you be in the best of health and barakah this Ramadhan

The 4th and final installation to the YMP Ramadhan Series is on insyaAllah! Circle #4 is most pertinent as it is our last chance to hear about how to ‘Hook Up with The Quran’ this Ramadhan.

We are very much familiar insyaAllah with the Quran as the Kalimatullah, a gift to the entire ummah, a guide for the living and those who have passed, a book of vast knowledge, and a mu’jizat bestowed upon us via the prophet Muhammad Rasulullah s.a.w.

How many of us struggles to find time reading the Qur'an because of a busy worldly life?

How many of us used to have the habit of reading the Qur'an daily but the habit fades away?

How many of us tried hard getting those habits up again, but failed and failed again?

Why is the blessed month of Ramadhan called the month of Quran?

This is because it is the month in which the Quran was first revealed to mankind, believed to be on the Night of Al-Qadr or better known as Al-Lailatu-ul-Qadr. Allah Al-Zawajalla says in the Qur’an:

“O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint…Ramadan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur’an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting…” (Al-Baqara, 2: 183- 185)

Let’s take the opportunity of this month of Ramadan to gear up in our acts of worship, and one of the ways is to hook up ourselves with the Qur'an again. This is where we reintroduce ourselves with the Qur'an to reflect our state of belief and actions and to ask ourselves whether we are on the right track. This is where we pick that habit up again and gain momentum to read, memorize and internalize the Qur'an persistently, gradually and continuously.

Join us this Sunday in our Ramadan Series #4 with Brother Shah Kirit as we find ways to hook up with the Qur'an again, and be constant with it even after this month comes to an end inshaAllah. InsyaAllah in this weekend’s circle, we will use our last mile this Ramadhan to explore some secrets, stories, knowledge and discoveries of the Quran, to help pique further our interest in the Quran.

Brother Shah Kirit’s name perhaps reflects his non-Muslim origin and also his current status as a Muslim. It would not be an exaggeration to claim that Brother Shah (the way he likes to be called) is probably one of the leading and most popular speakers on Comparative Religion and on Islam for non-Muslims, in Malaysia today.

As the leading da’wah officer at IIS, he has been delivering talks and giving courses on Comparative Religion for tenyears now. He is also the Da’wah Ambassador at SABA Islamic Media Sdn Bhd, having joined the organization in 1999.

His friendly, sincere, unassuming and always-humble way befits his main purpose in life – to explain Islam to anyone in the most direct and simple way possible, hence making clear Islam’s great message of peace and hopefully making a difference to Peace & Harmony throughout the nation and the world. Simply put, it is something of impossibility for anyone to dislike Brother Shah, even if one disagrees with his view. Being an avid advocate of truthfulness and fairness, he does not hesitate to correct actions and situations around him, be it among Muslims or non-Muslims.

Ramadhan Series 2013: Open Circle #2

Ever since we were we born, most of us are being taught to score hundreds of A's, get into a good college, get a good job, good pay, get married, have a comfortable lifestyle and live "happily ever after". In a sense all that we are doing is for the duniya. We often think that tomorrow will come as if God owes us another day, but what if this was our last Ramadhan?

What would happen to our relationship with the Duniya?
We have been living in this duniya, striving for it for all our lives. Are we just going to let it go?
Are we ready to let it go? Should we?
Can't we just hold on to it and bring it with us to the hereafter?
What does Islam teach us about the Duniya?

InshaAllah these are among some of the questions that we will discuss in 2nd Episode of The Ramadan Series by Young Muslims Project. Come and join us this Sunday!
