getting permission corbishley surgery with Silly me to help me lasagna baja Cali. Welcome dear viewers to our new show entitled embracing Koran. And recently on is a show wherein we will discuss a number of topics that will bring us closer to the book of Allah subhanaw taala. Embracing Quran is also a show in which we will discuss the concept of the double how to ponder the book of Allah Subhana Allah and as we learn how to ponder the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala The only law is he by the leave of Allah subhanaw taala alone We will also attempt to ponder a surah from amongst us who are of the Quran, that being sort of Miriam

00:01:15--> 00:01:54

our show will start off with a number of prefixes related to subjects which really really are effective in understanding how to ponder the Quran and understanding how to develop a relationship with the Quran. And what I wanted to talk about today was the names of the Quran you know, when you're whenever you're looking at anything, any idea which has been named for a specific reason, you look at those names and through those names, you can recognize the beauty behind the object behind the area, sometimes you know certain areas are named behind people, right. So when you look into that, you can find a history of that individual perhaps being buried there perhaps staying there

00:01:54--> 00:02:37

perhaps having visited there and so on and so forth. certain times, people end up naming corners of even buildings and so on and so forth behind and after people. And if you look deeply in the history of that, you can also find that that name has a reason similarly, Allah Subhana Allah has given the Book of Allah subhana wa tada names. Actually Allah subhana wa tada has given the Book of Allah many names, not just one name. Some of the scholars they actually said that the names of a large book, they are near 100 names. Others they said a little bit less than that 90 odd names others they said 55 names such as some of the later scholars of aluminum Koran, as Akashi, and others. And these

00:02:38--> 00:02:47

names are names which are descriptive, there are descriptions of the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But there are a few names.

00:02:48--> 00:03:24

A few of these names are names, which are primary names of the book of Allah subhanaw taala. These names Allah subhanaw taala, has given to his book and used recurringly throughout the Quran again and again. Now the first of those names is of course, none other than the Koran itself. So let's get talking about recall. Remember, when we were talking about the names and we're talking about a multiplicity of names, realize that the Arabs have a practice and also other cultures have a practice that whenever they name something, with multiple names, they actually are doing that because they find this particular object to be so valuable because they're trying to give it more

00:03:24--> 00:03:38

than one description, right? So when Allah Subhana, Allah has 99 In fact, infinite names, Allah subhanho wa Taala has those infinite names because his blood his beauty, Allah subhana wa Tada. Perfection is infinite.

00:03:40--> 00:04:02

Lost perfection is infinite. And similarly Rasulullah saw Selim has also been granted a number of names within the Quran as well and outside of the Quran as well. And that's because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been granted the most perfection that humankind can ever receive. The Quran, Allah gives it a number of names as well. Primary names among them are four, perhaps five.

00:04:04--> 00:04:14

And the first of those names, as we said, is on and this is of course, the single most popular name of the book of Allah subhanaw taala calls it different in many places in the Quran.

00:04:18--> 00:04:59

Allah calls the Quran the Quran, where Allah tells us Shahada, Ramadan, and Lady unzila feel for the month of Ramadan. We're in the book of Allah the Quran has been revealed, right? So when a lot is talking about the moment of revelation of the book, a lot calls it the Koran. And the word called on it comes from the word para para, which means to recite. And the word for iron is actually a verbal noun from the verb, which means to recite, so it's the work put on then just comes out to mean the recital. The Koran is that book that's that's intrinsically calls for us to be reciting it and regularly, so

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran he says hola in HTML added into engine II to be mislead how the Quran that whenever you see what elkana about whom the violin will hear that if the entire humanity and also the Jin Chi, the ensconce the mankind and the jinn kind, they will try and attempt to bring about something similar to the Quran, they will not be able to bring about anything similar to that or on what you can about only baldon mahila. Even if some of them happen to be for others of a healer helpers, right? So people will not be able to bring anything like the Quran. And you know what's unique about this verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about two different kinds. He speaks

00:05:43--> 00:06:04

about the jinn. And he speaks about the mankind. And what's unique about that there is that you see, the Quran has actually been gifted to Jin kind and mankind alike. It is a gift for all of humanity. Yes, but specifically the people who have been addressed by the Quran or the jinn kind of the mankind

00:06:05--> 00:06:43

and that is within the beginning of the book of Allah subhana wa tada as well where he says and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen All praises due to a lot of Lord of the alameen and the scholars of the sea. They said that an Al amin is referring to the mankind and the jinn kind. Amin is a unique word in that regard, that when it's plural, it's more particular when a singular singular it becomes more general. So when you have the word atom, it means everything besides Allah subhanaw taala but when you say Allah mean, then it starts to narrow itself down to what just the mankind religion can so Allah says all praises due to a lot of the the one who a lot of hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen or

00:06:43--> 00:07:20

praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the the jinn kind of the mankind starting the Quran off what dimension of the Jin Chi in the mankind. Similarly, Allah Subhana Allah says to us in the end of the Quran, immunogenicity wellness, from the jinn and from the NASS almost signifying that this Koran starts off with dimension of you origin kind and this one starts off with the mention of you or mankind. And it finishes off the mentioned with a mention of YouTube as well. You should then recognize that this Koran is an address for you that Allah subhana wa tada tells us in this verse this quarter on here, you two have been addressed with it if you were to try to bring something

00:07:20--> 00:07:29

similar to it, you would never be able to do it. This is a Book from Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and upon you a simple submission to this book.

00:07:30--> 00:08:06

This is amongst the names of the Quran as we said and this is this is in fact the primary name. And there's a difference between the word or on which is a recital and between the word Kalam Allah calama Allah sometimes you say speech of Allah subhana wa tada because the word kalama law the speech of Allah subhana wa tada it is more general sometimes it can refer to the book of Allah the Quran specifically sometimes it can be referring to other books of Allah subhanho wa Taala as well Similarly, there is a difference between the work on and there's a difference between the word Kitab la Xhosa as well because Allah Subhana Allah Allah has given the name Koran specifically to the book

00:08:06--> 00:08:46

that he gave to him how much of a lot while he was in them. However, the word Kitab had been given to other books as well, because any book that was delivered by Allah subhanho wa Taala to humanity eventually became a binded texture it became in squarely came into scrolls or, or so on and so forth, right, or tablets, etc, would then be called a McKubre Kitab. from that angle, something that has been written down, however, the work put on is particular to none other than the book of Allah, the Quran. The second name of the Quran, which is extremely popular as well, in the Quran, it's recurring many, many times is none other than the name or the title that we were just discussing and

00:08:46--> 00:08:51

that is the Kitab. So Al Kitab is amongst the names of the book of Allah the Quran

00:08:52--> 00:09:38

and this particular title Allah subhanho wa Taala gives it to the Quran for a reason as a delicacy and a CLT and I quote Azhar Kashi and the CLT. Why because the Kashi and CLT are some of the most greatest scholars would written on the subject of aluminum right as Akashi in his book, Oberon lumen Quran and later on a cod in his country alumina Khurana deli meat as well and a few other books that he wrote on the subject of aluminum chloride. It is also said that CLT took a lot of his knowledge from zurka she's works. So they both explained that the word Kitab the word Kitab it is known as the Quran is known as Kitab. Why because the word ketubah means to gather things. Okay? Gather means to

00:09:38--> 00:10:00

Bama. Your agenda is to gather things together and to place things things together. Allah subhana wa tada very uniquely takes a multitude of different topics. And Allah subhana wa tada takes these sometimes extremely different topics, and he places them together in a very, very unique way. at a moment's difference, you'll be reading about

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

About a story. It was at a moment, you know, a moment later you'll be reading a legal law that Allah subhanaw taala is revealing. Just another moment later, there'll be something related to history and other moment later there'll be something related to PETA and the belief system that Allah subhanaw taala has placed within the Koran for the believers, right and for mankind at large. So all of these things they're so separate but yet they're so united and so uniquely so so Allah Subhana, WA tada calls the Quran, the kitara from that angle, because it gathers all of these things together, so uniquely. And the thing that is really unique to know over here is that the word Kitab and the work

00:10:42--> 00:10:49

are on are two names that Allah subhana wa tada gave to the Quran, which hint towards something right.

00:10:50--> 00:11:21

And this hint is, you know, a very, very powerful hint. And that is that Allah wants us to preserve the book of Allah in both recital and Allah wants us to preserve the book of Allah also in writing as well. So there is a preservation that occurs in writing, and then there's a preservation that occurs in also recital form as well. inshallah, inshallah we will discuss a little bit more about that present. The two different forms of preservation after the break. Does that come along? for listening, I hope to see you back. I said, I'm ready tomorrow.

00:11:51--> 00:12:19

saramonic morphological Barakatuh Welcome back to your viewers to the first episode of embracing Koran. We will be discussing the two different ways that Allah subhanho wa Taala has allowed for this book to be preserved. Allah subhana wa tada has placed the quality of preservation in the very name of the Quran. So Allah subhana wa Taala calls the Quran the Quran, ie the recital and Allah subhana wa Taala calls the Parana Kitab as well, the book which is to be written down, okay.

00:12:20--> 00:13:03

And one of the scholars by the name of Mohammed de vos, later scholar, he wrote in his book, another loving, and he explained this particular idea. And in that he says, and he tells us a very, very beautiful point, he says, that Allah subhana wa tada has called the Quran, these two names are on and GitHub, because he wants us to realize that there is a preservation when it comes to the preservation of the Soul to Soul support, and also of the soul as well. So there's a preservation within the text within the lines, in which we're going to be writing down the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And also within the hearts as well. He further adds, and tells us that if Allah subhana wa

00:13:03--> 00:13:44

tada has made it necessary for it to be preserved in these two ways. If we have a person who is reciting, and his recitation goes against what Allah subhana wa Taala had done to preserve it within the book within the text within the manuscripts within the you know, the most half that we have the binded work that we have, if his memory fails, then this will protect it, right, the book will protect it. And if someone finds a manuscript in which somebody made a mistake, then there's a lot of people who would memorize the Quran, and Allah subhanho wa Taala will preserve the Quran from that angle as well. So there's two mechanisms of preservation, there is a preservation that occurs

00:13:44--> 00:14:27

by memorization. And you must already know and if you don't know that, know that there's millions of people out there who have the Quran committed to heart entirely So okay, so they could literally recreate the Koran within a matter of days, if we were to lose all of the copies of the Quran and around the world. I mean, there's hundreds of 1000s actually, perhaps millions, if not in the billions copies of the Quran around the world, right? If we were to presume that all of these copies were to be lost, within a moment's notice, we could have people around the world gathered that could reproduce a copy of the Quran, entirely the same as the original copy. Why is that? Because they've

00:14:27--> 00:14:53

memorized it, they've committed it all to their heart, right? So this is the two mechanisms of the preservation of the Quran. It is a very, very powerful way of preserving the book of Allah as Kitab Al Kitab is the second name and Allah subhanho wa Taala starts off the Quran by referring to and Kitab as well. A lot tells us in the beginning of the Quran, in the second tour of the Quran and Islamic radical kita Bulava fee. That is the book which has no doubt within it.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

And what is it who de Lille Mata Ki happens to be a guidance for the people as well.

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

In the fact that a lot called this book up on is a great miracle as well. And that miracle is a such, that miracle is a such that Allah subhana wa tada called this a book, which is not yet written, because it's being revealed. And the Arab culture in, you know, seventh century Arabia was that they would rely a lot on memory. And that happens still today, by the way, right? people rely a lot within the Arab world on their memory. And this is what they're used to. This is what people are used to around the Arabian Peninsula more So historically than today, but that was the case. And that remains a good theme within the within the Arab world. So at that moment, when the Quran is

00:15:42--> 00:16:13

being revealed, people are generally reliant on their memories, people are not writing down the book of Allah Subhana, WA, tada, everybody in their houses, they're relying on whatever is within their memories, even though Allah subhanaw taala allowed for the Quran to be written within the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well, the prophet SAW, Selim had gathered in ye scribes for the revelation, so whenever the revelation would come, he would take those specific people that could write, and he would tell them write it, and add it to this surah you know, bring it to this surah bring it to that surah add it to this one, and complete or sometimes a complete

00:16:13--> 00:16:52

suite, I will be revealed. So the entire suite would be placed wherever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would, you know, encourage the Sahaba to place it, right. So there is that angle of preservation there as well. But generally people are memorizing, okay, then, in the name of Kitab, Allah is giving a hint that eventually and very soon, so it will become a Kitab. And that's exactly what happened during the lifetime of the Sahaba, in a very, very short period after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were in Abu Bakar, had gathered, along with the commission of different Sahaba, the Quran, he was the one who commissioned it, and he commissioned a group of

00:16:53--> 00:17:26

Sahaba, such as aids and other companions, who were very, very knowledgeable and scholars of the book of Allah subhanaw taala, gathered into a book form. So this was a miracle, it was almost foretelling of the fact that eventually this book, Allah Subhana, Allah will make it into a Quran, and we make it into a Kitab. You see, my dear brother, or your sister, we have a Koran, we have a guitar. And we have another name, which is for corn. And for corn is also a great and powerful name, in that it corrects one of the things that people end up missing when they're looking at

00:17:27--> 00:17:40

you, as a person who is looking at the Koran is taught within this name, and so on, that the Quran is in fact, the criterion, the photon, which means the criterion farakka.

00:17:42--> 00:17:48

Which means to literally separate things. So what the Quran does, through the name and for odd

00:17:49--> 00:18:27

is that it decides between wrong and, and good, it decides between good and evil, it separates and deciphers and clarifies the fog around evil and goodness around good people and bad people around right and wrong around falsehood and truth and so on and so forth. So I'll put on is then at full con. And that means that for us within our lives, the Quran must be a full pot. Whenever we are confused about a certain matter, our guidance will be found within the Quran. And that is something that is experiential as well people feel it. People say you know what, I was confused all day long, about a certain matter and opened up or onto a certain page and immediately I found the guidance

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

within it. Why? Because it's the

00:18:29--> 00:19:06

why because Allah Subhana Allah has made a very unique way in which he has organized this book. You see, people say the Quran doesn't have chapters we say that is the unique nature of the Quran. Because every few pages Allah is going to mention every, almost every primary theme theme required to human beings within their lives, right? So as you're reading just five pages down, you'll find all the answers you need, right for that day. And then you read another five and another five and it becomes a daily dosage and a fuel for you to keep going and a fuel for you to recognize the right from the wrong and a criterion for you to decipher between those two. So Allah Subhana Allah has

00:19:06--> 00:19:49

then made a call on the record as well. And in many places does Allah subhanho wa Taala call the Quran the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada says, well, the United minion Buddha would focus on the Quran happens to be, you know, explicit forms of guidance of guidance from Allah Buddha, explicit clear signs of guidance. And also it happens to be info on the criterion of all other criterias and in our times, we're lucky we need to get closer to the name of football or soccer and understand that and, and understand to deal with the Quran in that way because many times now we take different isms and ideologies and different things of such sort and try to to make them the supreme authority even

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

above the words of Allah subhana wa tada and Allah is telling us that the Koran is the footpath. So you have to take the Koran as the criterion for all other

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

ideologies and all other isms and all of the fog they're in and other concepts and ideas. You look at the Quran as a criterion to decide that which is good within them and that which is evil within Allah subhana wa tada tells us in sutra and for Kant, so an entire sutra revealed which is entitled for karma as well by the name of the Quran itself. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us dibala can lead next gen for Kannada AB de akuna. Amina Nithya, how perfect is the one Allah subhana wa Taala who has revealed and for calling upon his slave via Kunal al amin and Avira so that he can become a warner to people you know, this verse is extremely powerful in that Allah subhana wa tada tells us,

00:20:43--> 00:21:27

that Allah is Ever bless it. And the word dubach according to the scholars, is a word specific to Allah subhana wa tada in the Arabic language we barely find the usage of the word biotic for anything else other than Allah subhanho wa Taala there's some verbs, which are particular to a lotta biotic diala right? Sometimes you'll find it here and there, but generally the theme within the Arabic literature is at the bottom is for Allah subhana wa Tada. Okay, considering that you have a lossing Allah is the ever blessing who had revealed the forgone meaning that this for God is the most blessing of criterions upon mankind, Allah Abdi upon his slave, the prophet muhammad sallallahu

00:21:27--> 00:22:10

alayhi wa sallam why the akun and Amina do so he may become a warrior for the people. That is the beauty of this verse. And that is that this fork on the Quran, this criterion is what we use to decide what is right and wrong. And then we warn others, through the guidances within the Quran, of the evils within society, even if those evils are presumed to be good in reality, but other people, right, because they'll never be in reality good but in the reality that people you know, think to be reality at least. So that's another name of the Quran and that is another name of the Quran is a Tenzin. Let's name number four at NZ.

00:22:11--> 00:22:12

The book which was revealed, right,

00:22:14--> 00:22:54

we're in the who Latin zero or beta alanine and that peran happens to be a Tenzin of Allah subhanho wa Taala a revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. You see the word, nessa yanzhou means to descend. So literally, it's coming from up top, and it's coming down. Right. And sometimes within businesses and within corporations and so on and so forth. People say we had the commands come from up top right. So that's something we have to implement. Everybody download needs to do that. Sometimes that happens within all sorts of organizations. So when Allah Subhana, Allah calls this pourront Nz, it signifies that same quality within it, it is coming from a higher authority, and

00:22:54--> 00:23:34

that being a laudable entity with the most supreme and transcendent of all authorities, Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it is the 10 zero Atomy that means when it's coming from Allah, the Lord of the entire universe and mankind and jinn kind and that it is indeed it is coming from above and below that means we have to treat it with that same merit, that it is above all other authorities, and it is above all other ideologies. It is above all other thoughts and ideas. It is all above all other isms, because this is the 10 00 bill RME. It is a revelation from the Lord of the universe to mankind and the jinn kind and last but not least, is a beautiful name also.

00:23:35--> 00:23:44

A name, which is a decay, as decay. Allah subhana wa Taala tells us in the Quran in multiple places Allah says one zelner

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

elated vikhroli to vaginally na semana de la la

00:23:49--> 00:24:33

la la mia de facto were revealed to you or Mohammed the Quran. So that you may clarify this core on this vehicle. This reminder, this memorable, you know, piece of information that Allah subhana wa tada has sent down the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanho wa Taala says I've sent this liquid to you need to be in a nassima lucila Elysium so that you may clarify for the people, what has been revealed towards them as naked. Now, what is the word that can mean? You see, there's two different possibilities on what is meant by a vicar when a law calls the Quran advocate. And both of them are possible and both of them are very, very strong possibilities. Okay, and you can

00:24:33--> 00:24:55

perhaps understand it in both ways as well, because neither one negates the other. The first one is that Allah Subhana Allah sent this on as a reminder, and we feel that as we're reciting the Quran, you know, you read a page and there's a reminder for that specific day you can read the next page, there's a reminder for that specific date as well and then you read the next page. On the next day, you find a reminder within that day for that

00:24:57--> 00:25:00

in that page as well within that page for that specific

00:25:00--> 00:25:36

Big day as well. Right so it's a reminder throughout the Koran there's reminders time in and time out. Allah has made the Quran like that. And the second name or the second meaning of that name is that the Quran is glory it's shut off. So within the Quran lies the glory of this oma. If you stick to the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada will bring back the honor and glory to this oma because it's Likud. What in the hula we could look at when you call me. It is a remembrance. It is an honor for you and your people. I asked him lots of pain on what to Allah to honor a certain Hold on. There's a common location for listening with some of the law. So you know

00:25:38--> 00:25:39

what

00:25:43--> 00:25:45

that mean? Lee
