When the Prophet’s ﷺ companion Usaid ibn Hudair used to recite the Qur’an, the angels would descend from the heavens to listen. He would see a cloud above him shimmering with many lights. What did he have that others do not? Imam Khalid Latif tells us.
Ramadan is a month of connecting to the Qur’an. Few of us accomplish this because many have been fed a ‘sunday school’ diet of negativity about Allah’s Book. Why would anyone want to love a book if they’ve been told all their lives that it is a book about how ‘everyone is going to hell’.
Being made to feel bad in order to do good is one king of pedagogy…one that is disempowering and counter-productive. Imam Khalid stresses the importance of encouraging one another to do good with only good. After watching this khutbah, you will never see the Qur’an in the same way again.
