What am I reading? In fact, in the month of Ramadan, I am continuously reading the Qur’an insha’Allah rabb’l-‘alamin. - Sheikh Ibrahim Dremali


What is in your ear?

Assalamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. This is Yasir Qadhi welcoming you to the podcast. For more quality media, be sure to subscribe to our podcasts wa jazakum Allahu khayran wassalamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah.

[Shaykh Ibrahim Dremali]: Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim. Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. I am really happy to speak again with Jazakum Allah khayr for everything. You have some questions for me, and insha’Allah I will answer those questions.

The first question is: What am I reading? In fact, in the month of Ramadan, I am continuously reading the Qur’an insha’Allah rabb’l-‘alamin. I have tried to finish the Qur’an every week. My advice to all of you is to do the same insha’Allah rabb’l-‘alamin. As Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) revealed the Qur’an in the month of Ramadan, we must read the Qur’an continuously in this month of Ramadan.

What am I listening to? Sometimes I listen to the Qur’an on my phone, or I listen to the channels ‘Iqra, Al-Nas, or Rahma online. Those channels are Islamic channels. Before Ramadan I watched them more, but in Ramadan I really concentrate on reading the Qur’an alhamdulillah. Also, as I said, I’m watching a lot of channels online, or I have satellite television for the channel called ‘Iqra.

What kind of technology do I use? I have alhamdulillah my laptop, and very soon insha’Allah I will get an iPad. I advise everybody to use technology, which is a great da’wah. From my home, alhamdulillah, I can give lectures all over the world alhamdulillah and they can listen to me at the same time. I can also learn online. My advice is for all imams and students of knowledge to use the internet but in the right direction and right way insha’Allah rabb’l-‘alamin.

The advice I got from my father when I was a kid – and I always repeat this – is to study the Qur’an and understand the reason for the revelation and the tafsir of the Qur’an, especially in this month. When I read, I read a lot of fiqh because it is my specialty. I advise all of you, especially living in this country, to speak about fiqh’l-nawaazil. My advice to all of you is to know your deen (religion) very well. Know Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). Ask and seek the love of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) especially in this month. Jazakum Allah khayr wa barak Allahu feek for everything.

What’s in Your Ear? is an occasional Saturday series where we ask Muslims, known and unknown, a few simple questions:

1. What are you listening to?
2. What are you reading?
3. What are you watching?
4. What technology are you rocking, Mac or PC? Kindle, iPad, Android phone, etc?
5. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received or an advice you have for MM’s readers?

In this week’s WIYE, we interview Sheikh Ibrahim Dremali (you can also watch an exclusive Ramadan Reminder from the sheikh here).
