00:03:13 --> 00:03:23

I was like, when is somebody truly going to be honest, like yard good food free food? We're here for some free food that is not biryani

If he says biryani, we have a problem with the caterer. Okay, excellent. Why else should we be hear

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

from the sisters or the brothers, why should we be here?

00:04:06 --> 00:04:08

So raise your hands because I don't know who spoke.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:12

Yeah, so that's the community. And

00:04:13 --> 00:04:18

to get closer to the dean, from the sisters, why should we be here?

00:04:20 --> 00:04:23

And the kids that are touching the partition, it will fall on you.

00:04:25 --> 00:04:27

Just laying why should we be here?

00:04:30 --> 00:04:54

So we can set the example and teach our kids that in these lands as parents, we're going to take our time from our busy schedules. To set an example. I'll give you a beautiful example of what I witnessed yesterday. Yesterday. There was a family that landed their first day in America from Syria. They came from really difficult situations but hamdulillah they made it here.

00:04:55 --> 00:05:00

So I ran into the Father the Son are they here to see

00:05:00 --> 00:05:22

You're in brother if you were here, no, they're not here. So the first thing that brother did, may Allah bless him. I said, Where are you staying? He said, Mind dinner makan, we don't have a place to stay. This is our first day. So I thought the best thing I can do is to teach my kids that this is the house of Allah. So we came to pray to rock as nothing.

00:05:23 --> 00:05:28

So we start our lives in America with the Masjid. This is something I witnessed yesterday.

00:05:29 --> 00:05:43

So we set an example so that for the rest of the two kids that were there, it's a statement that my dad doesn't even know where we're going to stay tonight and also salah, but his concern is can we go to the closest masjid so we can pray.

00:05:45 --> 00:05:51

And they had already praised the harasser. And they were they were just, you know, they just came in to pray two rakaat a sunnah and they left.

00:05:52 --> 00:06:02

So that for me was very inspiring that, you know, we need to set that role model as a community, as parents in these lands, that we are willing to take out time from our busy schedule.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:18

So that they learn that they need to take out from their busy schedules when they get busy. And trust me, they will get a whole lot busier than you and I, because they have a network, they have friends, they went to school here. So their busy life is going to be like yours and eyes when we were back home.

00:06:19 --> 00:06:20

It's going to be a lot more busier.

00:06:22 --> 00:07:03

Now, there are some pre ambles Alhamdulillah. So far, it's a beautiful gathering. May Allah bless everybody here. We we prepared a lot more than we anticipated, but it's really good. But I do want to set some beasts sick dab of imageless basic advocates. You see without advocates, we don't have anything. For those of you that are attending the Khurana character series that we're doing as well as the Shemitah it's all about building Hello, character. Because without Hello without the characteristics without a doubt, we have nothing to stand on in these lands or in front of Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:05 --> 00:07:24

we have nothing you imagined that woman that prayed and they read the Quran so we read the Torah and did everything that you and I could imagine. But she tied a cat and deprive that cat of food until the cat died and prophesy Selim said that woman is in the lowest level of hellfire.

00:07:26 --> 00:07:30

So without hook and adab and character were nothing. So some basic

00:07:32 --> 00:08:11

you can say rules of engagement, that would be a better thing. Number one, we have initiated a registration process for this. If you notice, we did not check you registering in the purpose. This is the first time we're doing it. It's okay, we all as a community need to learn to grow together. So we registered those of you that registered Alhamdulillah if you didn't register Alhamdulillah okay, we anticipated that there will be people that will come that didn't register we have no problem with that. But we have to start changing this behavior because what happens is the brothers who are managing food they're like how many maybe 300 400 or last week we got 200 Oh my god this

00:08:11 --> 00:08:29

week we had 400 How did they these extra 200 Come then you get the food for 400 then it goes down to 200. So instead of wasting food, you register and it will be an honor system. We're going to see how this works for four weeks its honor system, please register

00:08:30 --> 00:09:03

so that we can order exactly how much food we need so that we're not wasting food it is must only it is something that Allah is going to ask the administration here Allah is going to ask me and every single one of us if we become a source of wasting food, okay, and if you're not coming very simple just message right registration on that link you can message that we're not or you can cancel the registration inshallah next week will be a different system where if you're not coming you can just go in and cancel the registration. So it should be very easy for everyone. Number two parents responsibility and so basically the so hamdulillah yes

00:09:07 --> 00:09:12

yeah, if anybody wants to come for the Halacha they don't want to stay for food and they want to be part of Monday then that's fine.

00:09:14 --> 00:09:23

If you know like again, we're not forced feeding you hairs like no no brother. You can leave the door man like there's there we put the tables right at the entrance you you gotta eat before you leave.

00:09:27 --> 00:09:48

No, they can come for Halak we will never deprive anybody from you can comfort her again. Oh Allah He look the hadith of provinces Salam is so profound in this, that the food for two is enough for for and the food for four is enough for eight. So even if they show up we'll share a box hamdulillah we're all brothers and sisters in sha Allah brothers with brothers and sisters with sisters

00:09:50 --> 00:09:57

have to put those caveats. Parents responsibility. So if you have show of hands if you brought your children with you

00:09:59 --> 00:09:59


00:10:00 --> 00:10:02

How do you have a child you're still 14 Man.

00:10:05 --> 00:10:14

So your parents are probably with you. Keep your hands up if you if you brought your children with you keep your hands up, don't shy Kikuyu. Okay, keep your hands up if they are with you.

00:10:15 --> 00:10:41

So you brought them and they're still with you. Excellent good. This also entails the teenagers so next week the basketball court is not going to be working. It will be locked up, and even the teenagers will have to be here for 40 minutes. This is a basic adult of the messiness of the Quran. This is happening in the messiness they will be here for 40 minutes after 40 minutes, they're more than welcome to go out and play Shala on a new basketball net

00:10:42 --> 00:11:20

for the ones who are interested in basketball on a new basketball net inshallah. Okay, other part if your child is crying during salah, basic adult we all know this but to reiterate, if they're crying it is okay for the father or the mother to pick the child up your Salah does not break and if they cry excessively and you have to leave if they're hurt or whatever and you think that you need to pay attention then do that ask for the sisters those sisters distance this is not like a masala if the sisters are here and they're not praying, it's okay if you ask some of the other sisters to take care of your child or something if he cries can you know just if you know that your child is sick or

00:11:20 --> 00:11:31

they're going to cry, preempt that but to allow the child to cry that is not from the Sunnah it is to make sure that you take care of that child. Okay, the next part is

00:11:32 --> 00:11:41

when we are doing this mesh list, we're going to go over some basic ideas of the modulus and I think it should be very simple straightforward for most of most of us in Java.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:44

Any questions?

00:11:46 --> 00:11:48

I think it should be simple, straightforward.

00:11:52 --> 00:11:53

Okay, let's Mila.

00:11:59 --> 00:12:40

Some basic adverb of the Mejlis number one is in the manner that we set. So unless and until you are in need of a back support all these young girls on the side unless and until there's something happening to your back, the basic setup of images of the Quran is that you sit facing the teacher attentively. That's number one. Number two, is we must have humbleness and humility. I may see him say something that you may fundamentally disagree with me, right I'm not gonna say something that's going to be out of Shetty out, but you may disagree with me. And you have, you're more than welcome to have that disagreement with me in a respectful manner, outside of the class time, right. So if

00:12:40 --> 00:13:03

you think there's a different opinion, or you would like to express something, I am more than happy and there are brothers who will testify to that, that they had a difference of opinion. And I sat down with them for an hour, sometimes hour and a half, until we got to a conclusion that we learned to differ, we respectfully that is number two. Number three. This has to do with touch wish. So from the adab a there's a tab called

00:13:05 --> 00:13:20

Italia mal Metallian. In that book, he says it's almost a Kabira it's almost a major sin not like a literal major sin and fifth but major sin of these gatherings is that you're preoccupied with something else in the measures of Quran other than Quran

00:13:22 --> 00:13:27

why because Prophet Allah subhanaw taala says what about the Quran which is tells us to listen to the Quran.

00:13:30 --> 00:13:34

First time your Allah who wants to do that Allah can wash

00:13:35 --> 00:13:36

that the Quran or hormone

00:13:37 --> 00:13:40

that upon so have

00:13:41 --> 00:13:56

a look into hormone Lalla counter hormone that when Quran has been recited and honestly too low, like be attentive to unseen salt basically means that your ear, your mind, your eyes, your mouth, everything is paying attention to the Quran.

00:13:58 --> 00:14:24

And for the younger crowd that is here, my promise to you is the lecture is going to be longer than 3035 minutes. So you can all listen to the lecture beautifully and then enjoy. So I know there's this after a certain point the kids will start fidgeting that they're like us. So when that happens, we will stop the Halacha even if we have not crossed the point because we also want to take into account all of them that are here in Sharla. Okay, the other part is basically to yawn right if you're feeling like yawning

00:14:28 --> 00:14:39

I was like oh, this is getting tiring right to your if you have to yawn, yawn it in a way that you know you're not disturbing other people not leaning on to the person that is right next to you.

00:14:40 --> 00:15:00

Like oh, have hair, half hair. Remember that was like you know slowly and some Subhan Allah gave you been too much to the Naboo when you're there, there are some brothers that slowly slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, like just you know, put your head in my lap and mashallah, go for it. Right So Lee keeping yourself upright, it's only for the matter of 30 minutes.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:06

And all of this because we want Allah subhanaw taala as baraka to descend on us.

00:15:07 --> 00:15:25

That's it. We don't have any other motive or mission here. So that Allah's Baraka descends on US number two is our children see us as parents role modeling the adverb of the Quran in a Medallia's together as families. Inshallah you guys ready

00:15:27 --> 00:15:30

Bismillah All right, this villa. So today we begin

00:15:31 --> 00:15:37

with personal Quran stories of the Quran. What percentage of the Quran do you think is stories?

00:15:39 --> 00:15:40


00:15:42 --> 00:15:51

10% Okay, we have a 10% we have, we have a 1717 Ha 87% Yes. 80

00:15:53 --> 00:15:55

Okay, it's between 80 and 70.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:28

Between 70 and 80 is not 8575 75% of the Quran is all stories. There's a professor from Professor lambri In Egypt, he did the statistics. So he went through the Quran. Wherever there was a story, ie whether the story was in the Quran or the story was part of the idea of why revelation was revealed. That story three fourths of the Quran consists of this US story. Now,

00:16:29 --> 00:16:32

how many stories are there in the Quran?

00:16:33 --> 00:17:10

By the way, so we are going to do a Kahoot next week. So these these, these answers you must remember. So if you're not writing down, you will lose out on some prices next week. Alright, so we're going to do a Kahoot next week, we'll set up a Kahoot. So if you don't remember these, somebody's just taking out their notes and like we have to have this ready. Right? For the kids that are excited. You know, there is going to be a Kahoot on this. So if you get them right, then there's a prize for the family in sha Allah. How many stories do you think there are from the brothers? You already give an answer somebody else? Yeah. No stories. I mean, you can give a number it's not a

00:17:10 --> 00:17:14

flip answer. 10 Okay. Or Shala

00:17:15 --> 00:17:21

20 525 Okay, we've got 125

00:17:22 --> 00:17:24

Huh? 100

00:17:27 --> 00:17:52

It's above that. It's above 125 150. Okay, it's below 151 42. We have who somebody did somebody say 142? You said it. Okay. Hamdulillah 142 cases, okay. How many categories of these stories are there

00:17:55 --> 00:18:10

so 142 stories, if you were to divide them, I'll start off the category. First scary is the stories off the prophets. Next category is the stories off the story of who the prophet who

00:18:12 --> 00:18:19

Prophet sallallahu Sallam the story of prophecies that I'm like things that happened in his lifetime. Next category is the stories of what

00:18:21 --> 00:18:56

what their prophets there, but within those nations individuals that did something while Jah I mean, consoling Medina. From the downtown area, somebody came by Roger Lunia saw a man but I don't mean Ali Brown, he is not a prophet. He's not Prophet sallallahu Sallam his time, but he is what a person from the previous nations and Allah has placed them in there. Then who category wise if there's prophets and Rasul Allah, and then persons from the lives of the previous prophets than the next should be?

00:18:57 --> 00:19:04

Sahabas so you have incidents of Sahaba as mentioned in it, right Lata has and in Allah hermana

00:19:05 --> 00:19:15

What's the thing? About Zaid, Fela malerkotla as a domain? Zaid, the story of Zadara the Allahu so those are stories of the Sahaba that are mentioned, how many do we have now?

00:19:17 --> 00:19:27

For four categories 50 is categories of not kisses, but it is scenes that Allah subhanaw taala tells us about

00:19:29 --> 00:19:46

the ANA about piano, the one number 2123456 The sixth one is unsigned parables. Parables are basically in Surah TCAF. Right, that Allah had given that person

00:19:47 --> 00:19:59

to Jana Danes are able Jana tain. So he is in none of these, and about the parables of the Quran about the parables of the Quran. The Ansel of

00:20:00 --> 00:20:12

Quran there are two different opinions of the or lemma. One is that these are just parables. I mean, there's just a story is my salad hieratic dunya the life of this, like these are just parables and they haven't taken place.

00:20:14 --> 00:20:35

The other opinion is that they are actually actual incidences, and which is the majority of the opinion. But within the Sunni school, you have two opinions about that. Okay. So again, going back to I related to MBR profiter, salam, and rest of the MBR. Two are related to the companions of the previous MBR and Sahaba. And then one is related to what

00:20:38 --> 00:20:50

piano stories of what's going to happen, this person is going to come with this very, you know, all the descriptions about incidents of individuals from piano, and then you have the category of Athena the rest of the Quran

00:20:52 --> 00:21:17

6666 verses out of don't find 100 of those verses are related to come do this, don't do this, do this. Don't do this. That's what our Shetty is built upon. Those are the verses you and I are not allowed to pick up and say, Yeah, this is halal. And this is haram. That's not your job. That's not my job. That's the job of the Folk Aha. And the explanations of those verses have already been done.

00:21:18 --> 00:21:39

It's up to us to go and pick up the knowledge that the scholars have written. You have, for example, the fsid I Atilla calm, you have books that have been written, just focusing on those 500 verses. OKAY. Jimmy, so that's one introduction. Who is the narrator of these stories, the 142 stories?

00:21:41 --> 00:21:42

Allah which I are.

00:21:44 --> 00:21:45

So at use of

00:21:46 --> 00:21:55

na na na po soiling Santa casaus Allah is the narrator of the stories Subhanallah

00:21:56 --> 00:22:17

imagine how much veneration somebody has you know when like a movie comes out right? What is there? Oh, Christopher Nolan just released Batman like something like that. Right? Like, or what's the new? What's the new movie that's coming out? These kids will know. Something that everyone's waiting for the avatar? Yeah. Oh, he raised the hands. Okay. You have a movie that's coming out. Tell me

00:22:19 --> 00:22:20

Spider Man.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:27

I don't even know the movie. Okay, so, Spider Man and something. What's the new Spider Man movie?

00:22:30 --> 00:22:34

Oh, a Spider Man across the spider verse. Oh, Mashallah. Okay, Jimmy

00:22:38 --> 00:22:52

don't correct me my Did you eat this bad in that? It's okay. All right. So but we get so excited about these stories say like the oh this person narrated these stories. They are narrated by the creator of this universe.

00:22:53 --> 00:23:03

Every single story that has been ever narrated, every single thing you can imagine the best story that has ever been told can never match

00:23:04 --> 00:23:18

the descriptions of Allah subhanho wa Taala and when he tells a story that is why Allah subhanaw taala says na na ko So are they got accidental causes and what makes a story the best story or the best NARRATION

00:23:20 --> 00:23:40

The role MRDC something that makes the story the best narration to false number one, it has the hero Okay, the role Am I didn't say the hero I'm translating hero Okay, what am I said here? You have the hero and you get to know the events around that person

00:23:45 --> 00:23:50

so you have the hero and you get to know the events around

00:23:52 --> 00:23:56

the hero and sometimes you get to know

00:23:57 --> 00:24:00

it's my son actually, as talking there hasn't

00:24:02 --> 00:24:18

hasn't come here. Come come come can we break that group mashallah, they're very little there. They get bonded too much. Where too much bonding happening. Please bond after 11 minutes. After 11 minutes, you can bond all the ones in trouble. Okay. So

00:24:20 --> 00:24:33

the other part is you get to know the story. And through the story, you get to know who the hero is. So through the process of the story, you get to know who the hero is. Okay. Any story that combines both.

00:24:34 --> 00:24:47

That story becomes a central causes. That story becomes the best narration or the best story show. Okay, next question.

00:24:49 --> 00:24:50

In my app had said

00:24:51 --> 00:24:52

it doesn't recognize my face.

00:24:56 --> 00:24:56


00:24:58 --> 00:24:58


00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

Excellent. Next question.

00:25:03 --> 00:25:05

Why do we need so many stories?

00:25:06 --> 00:25:09

Why three fourths of the Quran is stories? Yes.

00:25:13 --> 00:25:16

Beautiful so we can learn lessons from them? Yes.

00:25:18 --> 00:25:22

So we can learn the lives of the prophets Masha, Allah, what else

00:25:24 --> 00:25:40

we can relate things to ourselves because every story that Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned has a parallel to every single one of us in our lives. There is some dark somewhere, some place where we can draw and say I am here in this story. This is me.

00:25:41 --> 00:25:42


00:25:48 --> 00:25:51

You can know more about the prophets, Jimmy, okay.

00:25:53 --> 00:25:54


00:25:55 --> 00:26:12

the purpose of all of these stories that LMI they say if we were to describe everything and summarize it will come down to two points. This will be on the coat. The purpose of why the stories are mentioned are boiled down on two main points. Number one, Allah subhanho wa Taala wants

00:26:14 --> 00:27:02

a drastic change within the nation, delete al just three Bill Quran I II, we need to change if you want to change something, storytelling is the fastest way that you can inspire a group of people. So through stories, Allah subhanaw taala is able to emphasize on things that are truly essential for you and for me as individuals in our lives. So I can pick up that Quran. And it is literally Vicara It is literally a reminder for me when I pick up a story and I'd see this individual that is going and Allah says in surah Yaseen, he came in the middle and he said, Why are you not following the so when that happens, you're like, Man Subhanallah look at this person. And you can relate to that at

00:27:02 --> 00:27:18

your own individual level from your school levels all the way to your workplaces. So a number of first point is the stories the ultimate purpose is they are there to inspire drastic change in our lives, and the way we live number one

00:27:22 --> 00:27:28

which either Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran, about changes in AI, a very famous IO

00:27:30 --> 00:27:37

in sha Allah good, where Allah subhanaw taala says in Allah, Allah, you don't wanna be a coalmine, Hatha Yoga, you don't want to be emphysema.

00:27:38 --> 00:28:00

Allah does not change the state of an individual and people until they decide to change that which is within themselves. How do we begin that change from within ourselves? Every single one of us can pick up the Quran, every single one of us can take that and go through those stories and find inspiration there and start that change process. Second

00:28:03 --> 00:28:04

the second part

00:28:05 --> 00:28:44

of the Quran is Caifa nourish these stories also tell us how do we live our lives in these lands in any land in any place in the world. The stories will tell you the challenges that other people have. Right a tough to Luna radula nine year cooler A B Allah are you killing a person? That's the only crime he has committed? He says My job is Allah. When we see Islamophobia on the rise. We look at those verses and we're like Subhanallah it has happened hedaya color rasuluh Rasulullah levena him and Omar Houma, Dona Sula, when the MBR said Oh Allah, when is your health going to come?

00:28:46 --> 00:28:52

And those who were with the MBR they said Medina su Allah. Oh Allah like where MB our Nebby where's your help?

00:28:53 --> 00:29:03

So if the MBR were tested, and we're going to be tested, so when we do how do we they teach us gay fine Irish, how do we live in these lands?

00:29:05 --> 00:29:06


00:29:07 --> 00:29:17

now, every single story of the Quran has three characteristics and I will end with that in sha Allah. Every single story of the Quran has three primary characteristics.

00:29:18 --> 00:29:37

And they are what I recited in the verse in the beginning, Allah says Luca de cana feel Tasos see him marry bruh indeed, in their stories, I eat these 142 stories. Very Bura what's the word Libra? What's the root word of Libra?

00:29:39 --> 00:29:45

Alright Daraa you are bureau. From there comes a bra. I Bara means what? I Bertha Now what does that mean?

00:29:47 --> 00:29:59

I crossed over the river crossed over the river. So and Allah subhanaw taala is saying that in every story that you have, there are lessons there are Ebro, which means what when you will listen

00:30:00 --> 00:30:41

To the story, you're on this bank. But in order for you to benefit from that story, you must cross over to the bank of lessons, you must cross over on the other side of the river. So you can pick up those lessons and the gems and all the pearls that are there. So you can start adorning yourself with these stories. And that's in a bit of a lesson for us. Hi, I shouldn't do this. I shouldn't do this. Hi, I've never thought about this, and all of this. So as we go through these stories, collectively, I'll share some lessons. But I don't have all the lessons because I don't have your life and your life and your life and your life and your life. I don't have that life. You have your

00:30:41 --> 00:30:49

own challenge. I have my own challenges. So my scope through which I would look at the Quran is going to be limited.

00:30:50 --> 00:30:57

But when we collectively sit, that is why Allah subhanaw taala says a fella you had to adapt Barone or

00:30:58 --> 00:31:03

why do they not ponder upon the Quran? Notice you have to adapt. Barone is plural.

00:31:05 --> 00:31:13

Allah wants us to collectively ponder upon the Quran as a community. Why don't you get together and think about the Quran do tetherball

00:31:14 --> 00:31:23

What is Allah intend? I mean this is the idea but what does Allah mean ma Soto what is behind the line? What is that which is implied but not said

00:31:26 --> 00:31:31

and that is called to the bar. So the first part is every story has a bra. Okay.

00:31:32 --> 00:31:33

I need to smile.

00:31:35 --> 00:31:38

Okay, it opened come the next port.

00:31:40 --> 00:31:44

Li o l l Bab this lessons are only for people who use their Oracle.

00:31:46 --> 00:31:52

Okay, and the word Lobo Al Bab is the essence of your upon the O'Neill L band.

00:31:53 --> 00:32:08

Then Allah says Maka, Anna Hadith and you have Tara, you will Oh, this is just tales of the past. Allah is like this is not fabricated stories. These are realities. These are actual realities of things that have happened in the past to people,

00:32:09 --> 00:32:11

their actual realities.

00:32:13 --> 00:32:39

So you can put yourself on that shoe and say, if it could if had happened to them, it can happen to us. If they got out of this, we can get out of this can mean FY 18 In Lila Walla, but we are done Cathy? How many times did it happen that a small group of people, they conquered a massive group of people.

00:32:40 --> 00:33:17

Every change that takes place, it starts with a small group of people, a small set of believers, if they could change, we can change. So we don't look at the numbers of hours in America, we don't look at the negative tide of everything that is happening. We look at the positive as long as we're with Allah Subhana Allah and Allah says in the after that I have come in three identical unit development three, I think theoretischen What's after that be is Neela we know that it's the even of Allah, it's the permission of Allah through which will be able to change.

00:33:19 --> 00:33:25

Okay, the next, the next character, this is all related to a bra. The next characteristic

00:33:26 --> 00:33:40

is that they are realities. They're not fabled, they're not fake, they're real things. And number three, of sleep couldn't Lishi and this thing has detailed about everything you need to know

00:33:41 --> 00:33:51

every aspect of your life that you are going through, if you spend some time and we use our intellect in sha Allah, Allah will guide us and lead us to that path

00:33:52 --> 00:34:09

of sila coalition, Allah says everything has been just described in it everything you need, not in summarized version to have full sleep and detailed explanations for you, but it's for only Al Bab. It's for the ones who use their intellect.

00:34:10 --> 00:34:11


00:34:12 --> 00:34:14

And then Allah says, What's the summary of all of this?

00:34:16 --> 00:34:22

These stories also have some additional benefits. Who then it has guidance.

00:34:23 --> 00:34:28

The Allameh they say Alcacer Sal Qurani. Yes, raw about

00:34:29 --> 00:34:34

all the stories of the Quran they instill in our hearts Aqeedah

00:34:36 --> 00:34:59

last night, I was I was on some app, and I was able to ask a question to Sheikh Hamza Yusuf. After I left for Russia. There was an app and he was answering questions. So I went on the stage or like virtual stage, and I asked him a question. I said, why that same question that I told you guys that you know, we don't have any, like the first 13 years of Prophet sallallahu salaams life we don't have many Hadees if you were to count there

00:35:00 --> 00:35:01

probably going to be less than 100

00:35:02 --> 00:35:22

We don't know what happened. So I asked you to come to use of that you know why? Like because that was a monumental like they changed that 13 years is what set everyone to success. The unsolved were built on the foundations of thermal hygiene. But why don't we know what Rasul Allah taught?

00:35:24 --> 00:35:29

And then you know, Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, he said something so powerful yesterday, he said, Actually, Prophets Allah Selim forbade

00:35:31 --> 00:35:41

her. Yeah, he forbade them you cannot write Hadees and the first 13 years. Why? Because this was the foundational stage of Quran.

00:35:42 --> 00:35:44

Without Quran you can't build.

00:35:45 --> 00:35:52

So the entire mawatha is all the reminders were nothing but the Quran McKee.

00:35:55 --> 00:36:08

Kuranda was revealed in Makkah. As a matter of fact, J Hamza said that they actually Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah had a collection of Hadith he burnt them because when Rasul Allah said, don't write my words. He burnt that collection.

00:36:10 --> 00:36:31

And Omar Radi Allahu Allah and He forbade Abu Huraira to spread Hadees that we need Quran first. People need to be solid in their Quran Macky Quran we're not talking about the 500 verses of atcom We're talking about the remaining 6166 verses three fourths of the Quran that is all stories.

00:36:32 --> 00:36:37

And most of these were revealed when in Makkah, most of these were revealed in Makkah.

00:36:39 --> 00:37:03

Inshallah, so, with that we send set a stage for us in sha Allah, there is one other introduction lecture next week, just so that when we start we benefit the most from the stories the format is going to be just for the people format is going to be very simple will start inertia as he moves forward. The idea would be that my 939 40 Max we will have will end our

There was a question that came in SMS right now, which is what profit or what story are we going to begin with?
