Dua Qunoot (excertp) - 22nd Ramadan 2008
Reality and Obligation in Ramadan
During this Ramadhan do not let the sweetness of our deeds vanish into the night, leaving only emptiness. When one contemplates the texts on fasting, its wisdom and goals in Shariah, and looks at the reality of the Muslim communities, one realizes a wide gap between the reality and our obligations. Remember that Ramadhan is a bounty that Allah blessed His servants with, to strengthen their faith, and increase their piety (Taqwa). Allah said: "O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become pious." (Al-Baqarah 2:183).

Tips for memorizing Quran
Dear scholars, As-Salaam `Alaykum. My question is: What is the best way to memorize the Qur’an? Can you also outline a schedule as to how to do it? After memorizing one Juz' does one need to revise the one memorized before moving forward? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Wa`alykum As-Salaamu Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh.
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
