“The beauty of Islam is that Islam recognizes the value of human beings, and so there must be some benefits to fasting.”
“Anyone and everyone who fasts will be able to become closer to Allah through fasting.”
“These people who say you should not recite the Quran if you don’t understand it, they neither learn what the Quran means, nor recite. They become bone-lazy.”
“The Arabic of the Quran is beyond the Arabic of the Arabic-speaking people.”

Listen to Shaykh Amin interact with the hosts of The Mad Mamluks podcast (March 13, 2017) as he speaks to his vision of Islamic scholarship in America.
On this twenty-seventh night, Shaykh Amin defines the most valuable ni’mah from Allah upon His slaves, namely the taufiq to worship Him. He elaborates on the etymology of Ramadan as the name of a month, a state of purification and ultimately an attribute of Allah (S).
“Allah (S) through the Prophet (S) guided this ummah to collectively recite the Quran and listen to it, collectively, in a jama’ah.”
“The sahaba’s understanding of fadl was… that I was given the taufiq to do more ‘ibaadah.”
