Allah and abhi Karim, Allah here from solid to automata, slim, probably shortly so the way acidity Emily, that Emily Sonia, Coco Lee, my brothers and my sisters, I hope that you are all doing well and shuttling back to Allah.

00:00:17--> 00:00:30

Today's halaqa will be slightly different we finished similar to last week, and we need to start another slot or we need to start a new part or portion of this halaqaat.

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

However, what I thought of doing is, instead of actually getting right into another soul, or another set of verses, I asked him,

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

What I thought we should do is

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

start learning about the etiquettes of God.

00:00:49--> 00:00:52

Right, like, what do we do when we recite the Quran?

00:00:53--> 00:01:00

In fact, even before we start to recite it, what are we supposed to do? What are we supposed to say? How are we supposed to dress?

00:01:01--> 00:01:22

Do we need to have a look or not? Are we supposed to prepare ourselves in a certain way? Do we need to have full conviction in the man in the Quran in order to or in a less penalty to add, as in the Quran being revealed? from him to us as human beings on earth? Of course, through the angel debates of the Prophet salallahu idea of sentiment, then, you know, to us,

00:01:23--> 00:01:29

or, you know, like, what, what do we what are we thinking with regard silica? So,

00:01:31--> 00:01:35

um, we obviously have been,

00:01:39--> 00:01:43

you know, learning a little bit about the portal app over the last little while.

00:01:45--> 00:02:03

And we've been learning versus Of course, and we've been going through the 30th of June, we finished the soldiers, we went through a good part, or I should say, the last part is sort of through bacara. We also learned through some other sources of acquired sort of ohana and we went through the whole Sora

00:02:04--> 00:02:11

we just finished up to a calf right the entire school. Now the question is, do we know enough about the court and

00:02:14--> 00:02:51

from the angle of preparing ourselves to read it and to learn about it, you know, some of us will just take the quarter urn put on a shelf, leave it there, we don't really know the importance of it. Some of us will learn the Quran but not implemented. Some of us will have lots and lots of knowledge of the Quran and knowledge of the Sunnah Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but we may not be acting upon it, we have the knowledge, but we don't respect it. And that's where you'll notice Traditionally, the scholars would

00:02:55--> 00:03:07

train anyone who's about to gain Islamic knowledge in morals and values and good etiquettes before they actually start giving them the knowledge of

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

the Quran and the Hadith

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

of the law.

00:03:20--> 00:03:21


00:03:23--> 00:03:32

having said that, what we need to first do is learn the importance of the quad and learn what we need to do.

00:03:34--> 00:03:50

before reading and learning and understanding, right? What I mean by that as well is learning to respect what we learn of the Quran. Does that make sense? learning to respect what we learn of the Quran, so someone might say,

00:03:52--> 00:04:28

Allah subhana wa with Allah says so and so thing in the Quran. Yes, but Allah also says yet and you are living in an urban Lima taco Luna mela to Fairlawn. Oh you who believe? Why is it that you say that what you don't do? Why do you say things that you yourself don't do? And this is where sometimes we learn about Islam. And there are a lot of people out there who have knowledge of Islam, but they don't have the morals, the values, the respect for the urn, or for the deen for Islamic knowledge.

00:04:29--> 00:04:39

And the problem with that is that we find people talking so much about Islam and talking passionately about Islam. And you know, quoting Hadith and quoting as

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

and I remember one of our teachers telling us

00:04:45--> 00:04:56

it's not so much about the amount of is or the amount of Hadith that a person quotes. It's how they respect it and how they apply it.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

You get that how they respect it.

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

how they apply it.

00:05:02--> 00:05:15

Now, for any topic, you can find something I must have handled it Allah says, Allah, Allah decree in kuntum letter Allah moon as the people of knowledge. If you don't know,

00:05:16--> 00:05:52

it obviously for, you know looking for static knowledge and we go to a scholarly or if you're looking for, you know knowledge. In the subject of math, you go to someone who's learned in math, you go to someone who, you know, if you're trying to learn about gaming, right, you want to figure out how to game better or, you know, the other day I was looking into cubing, right, Rubik's Cube, some people do really, really, really, really fast, right? So I was looking into that, because this new app that I saw that's out there, it's like a software program that teaches you how to do a Rubik's Cube or how to solve a Rubik's Cube really fast.

00:05:54--> 00:06:32

And, you know, if you if you want to learn about it, then you go where you go to the people who have the knowledge of it, right. Like, for example, I wouldn't go to my daughter and ask her to teach me Rubik's Cube when she herself is like, I don't know, I'm trying to figure it out myself. Right. You might come to me and ask me about skydiving. I tell you look, I like flying. But I don't know the first thing about skydiving. Okay. You might come to me and ask me about Sala patience, whoo. dm or, you know, to tweet or something of that sort, I might be able to help you with that, right. So every single person has some sort of skill, and everyone is able to teach someone something.

00:06:34--> 00:06:46

The question is, when we learn Islamic knowledge, a lot of the time especially in the world that we live in now, with this live streaming that's going on, we find that people are taking Islamic knowledge.

00:06:47--> 00:06:50

They don't know how to apply the static knowledge.

00:06:51--> 00:07:04

And the second thing that they're doing is they're taking the Islamic knowledge. And they're selling the Islamic knowledge without them having even understood the importance of this knowledge.

00:07:05--> 00:07:30

I'm not saying anything about people who, you know, have courses out there that are designed and they're being sold. Look, we have to pay for people's time, right. So if someone is is charging for an extended class, I would look at it as I'm not paying for the knowledge, specifically, I'm paying for that person to time to teach me this knowledge in the process of regaining that knowledge. Because knowledge is knowledge, knowledge is all out there.

00:07:31--> 00:08:17

But we learn from teachers who understand that knowledge in depth and understand how to apply it. But even before that, we have to learn how to respect the knowledge and how to respect it. And I know it sounds like an uncle thing to do, or you know, someone who's much older saying, you need to learn to understand them better respect the knowledge, respect your elders respect this respect that, yes, elders do. Tell us about respect, it's important, and we need that we definitely need it. But at the same time, we need to understand is we have a problem, right? Now, we have a problem. Problem is, it's easy to access Islamic knowledge online because of the internet.

00:08:18--> 00:08:25

But people don't respect the knowledge that's being given. Or people don't respect the knowledge that they're receiving.

00:08:27--> 00:08:43

And so there's a number of things that have to do with respecting knowledge, and respecting men in particular. And of course, our Friday night thing is specifically to the court and until we change it up, maybe, you know, start doing something about hobbies. But I thought for the next few weeks,

00:08:44--> 00:08:46

why don't we start talking about

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

the importance of

00:08:51--> 00:08:52


00:08:53--> 00:09:30

related to the club. So etiquettes related to seeking knowledge of the Quran. And I'm not even going to start for today, like today is just an introduction to get us, you know, get our minds flowing. I really want you to type in things in the comment section, start asking a bunch of questions. If you want feel free to do that, you know, we could turn it into a q&a session, you know about things to do with earn or things in general, right. I like to sometimes have an open q&a session. So please use this time right now. If you want to ask any questions, feel free to type it in. If you have any questions that your family members have been wanting to know, then type it in and then shot a lot of

00:09:30--> 00:09:35

data we will, you know, try our best to answer those questions. But

00:09:36--> 00:09:48

also want you to familiarize yourself with some of the morals and values and etiquettes of seeking knowledge. And

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

we will start to do that from next Friday. inshallah next Friday we'll start to learn about respecting the Quran and seeking knowledge from the Quran.

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

And the things that we should do in this thing, how to prepare ourselves and, and what to look for and, and how to understand the Quran or understand how to respect what we learned of the Quran Am I going to implement this or not, I'll give you some example.

00:10:14--> 00:10:23

This brother was mentioning the other day, you know, his dream and passion is for his child to become a half of the coroner. And I said, Hamdulillah, that's an amazing thing.

00:10:26--> 00:10:32

But even if your child doesn't finish memorizing the entire Quran,

00:10:33--> 00:10:43

if he memorizes a part of it, or half of it, or a third of it, for example, and that third of the urn, he retains it.

00:10:44--> 00:10:56

And I'm not talking about understanding, just memorizing, right, he memorizes, let's say 10 pages of the Quran. And he retains those 10 judges of the court.

00:10:57--> 00:11:13

And he practices his recitation of those 10 judges of the court, right over and over. And he's constantly, you know, connected to those 10 years of acquire, it's better for him or for her

00:11:15--> 00:11:18

than to memorize the entire Quran, and forget it.

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

It's better for him or her

00:11:21--> 00:11:40

than to memorize the entire Quran and ignore it, or to memorize the entire plan and neglect, or to memorize the entire code and not begin to implement it after understanding it. And so you see my brothers and sisters when it comes to the Quran,

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

and Islamic knowledge.

00:11:44--> 00:11:56

It's not a race to see who knows more. And this is a mistake that people make when they start to debate about religion, or start to debate about Deen.

00:11:57--> 00:12:27

They tried to learn more in order to prove that I know more. That's actually arrogance. That's arrogance. It's not pride. It's arrogance. Pride is hamdulillah Allah subhana wa tada has blessed me with that knowledge and hamdulillah as a blessing, I cherish it, I take advantage of it, I implemented I share it, and so on and so forth. arrogance is I know more than you. And I'm going to show you that I know more than you and I'm going to put you in your place. And I'm going to teach you a lesson even though the person is maybe even Muslim,

00:12:28--> 00:12:33

right that we're trying to put in their place or teach them a lesson. And so

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

when it comes to Islamic knowledge,

00:12:37--> 00:12:45

sometimes it's better to learn a little bit and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when do I need what do I

00:12:46--> 00:13:00

convey from me? Right? convey something from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam even if it is one idea, and one is not specifically referring to one I have

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

one thing.

00:13:03--> 00:13:21

One thing, one Hadeeth one lesson that we learned from the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Okay? So like I said before, feel free to type in a few things and ask if you have any questions. I saw a few things pop up here, I'll try and read them and go through it.

00:13:24--> 00:13:36

Someone says sometimes the internet knowledge is not right. And we need to go to authentic resources. Absolutely. Absolutely. You know, sometimes what we find on the internet is not exactly what we should be learning from.

00:13:38--> 00:13:42

And the tricky part is how do you know what's right? And how do you know what isn't? Right?

00:13:43--> 00:14:16

How do you know what's right in order to take from and how do you know what isn't right in order to stay away from? That's why we need teachers, right? That's why we need teachers. And sometimes people will say, Well, how do I know if my teacher is the right teacher? Well, you have to do your own knowledge and research. Like you have to gain your own knowledge and do your own research and do your own digging, and so on and so forth, and get, you know, opinions from people and so on. But don't overdo it. If you ever feel that something isn't right, then start to ask questions. If you ever feel that your teacher can't answer your questions, and I don't mean that your teacher doesn't

00:14:16--> 00:14:54

have the answer to the question or doesn't know it. What I mean by that is your teacher refuses to answer your questions and says, just learn from me and don't ask questions, then you should be careful. Right? And this happens, especially traditionally, we see a lot of people traditionally, you know, they would tell their students, they would say, you know, they would teach them and anytime a student has a question, they would make it seem like the student is dumb and doesn't understand it and just be quiet. Eventually you'll know. Right? Or they refuse to answer the questions. That's not a part of our Deen. The very first thing that I quoted at the beginning of

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

this you know, this session was

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

basically in control letter them

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

seek knowledge from people who have that knowledge if you don't know.

00:15:05--> 00:15:13

And so part of our Deen is to ask and not only asking people of knowledge asking Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

with the Rooney StG Blackcomb

00:15:17--> 00:15:23

what he does, like everybody I'm Neha in a curry Fuji Buddha averted either

00:15:25--> 00:15:30

fairly yesterday UI while you need to be Allah Allah.

00:15:33--> 00:15:57

Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to ask, what wants us to call upon him. So seeking knowledge first of all doesn't come by going and asking teachers it begins by asking Allah subhanho wa Tana musante his center. Be sure please solidary Why is evening me and Mary? neuro coded?

00:15:58--> 00:16:35

Lisa Annie, only asking Allah Subhana Allah to add it but I'm really sorry, Shockley. So did he make it easy for me to understand this knowledge? Right? To to understand and to feel good and to feel comfortable? Well, yes, simply every and make what I'm about to embark upon easy for me. What they tell me Listen, you know, this is obviously with regards to Moosa It is said that is a different case. But with regards to us, we make this door how to handle with Anna, asking a lot to make it easy for us. Right?

00:16:36--> 00:16:41

Not not to have any anxiety, not to feel intimidated by the corner.

00:16:42--> 00:16:52

Don't feel intimidated by the traditionally, one of the things that we were always stopped to do is, you know, do not read, for example, sorry.

00:16:54--> 00:17:32

It's too complex, don't read books have to see if this is what we were told, you know, only read one or two books that were constantly read over and over and over to us. It's not the way it's not the way of learning said to scare people from learning certain things, to force people into a certain way. Right? Where they can't question where they shouldn't go and touch that authentic knowledge because they're not able to handle it yet. How do we expect people to gain knowledge and to sequence you know, to ask questions, and I know there'll be people there are colleagues of mine, people who I know around the world, some of them I've studied with in the past who will say doubt No, absolutely

00:17:32--> 00:17:35

not. We can't assess fine if that's the way you want to think then think that way.

00:17:36--> 00:17:55

But one of the things that we learned so Pamela is the importance of going back to the authentic sources. Why go? If you're learning is them acknowledge? Why go to things? Or books that don't contain authentic sources of knowledge? Does that make any sense? No, it doesn't.

00:17:57--> 00:18:06

It's like telling our children, hey, I want to protect you from this world. So hear be exposed to all the things that are not good and not pure.

00:18:07--> 00:18:21

And not right, and go, you know, learn about lies and learn about cheating and learn about stealing and so on and so forth. And some people will say, dude, how can you compare those two? There are some books that are out there that contain fabricated it.

00:18:23--> 00:18:27

There are some people out there that are teaching things that are not even true.

00:18:28--> 00:18:32

There are some people that are saying things about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that are not true.

00:18:33--> 00:18:36

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us about that,

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


00:18:40--> 00:18:44

that a person who is saying something about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

that isn't true.

00:18:48--> 00:18:54

Failure to bow naka de hominem, then that person should prepare their seat or their place in Jannah.

00:18:56--> 00:19:07

You're not doing what's right, you basically have found your spot in a place that isn't good for you, yourself. And so seeking Islamic knowledge.

00:19:09--> 00:19:27

We can go on and on and on with reading about the quarter and reading from the Quran and taking lessons from the product earning stories from the Quran and so on and so forth. If we don't know how to respect what we're learning, and how do we expect to benefit from what we're learning?

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

Like, what good is it for us to even learn it?

00:19:33--> 00:19:43

This is a question that I have for a lot of people a lot. A lot of parents as well in particular, right? They bring their kids to the muster to like, go and learn. They send them to learn they come home and the parents

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

You know, sometimes don't even they will ask them what they learned. The parents lifestyles completely distinct from his M. And look, we're all we are all weak. You know what you see what you see

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

On the outside of a person, not what a loss of habitat a season sight of their hearts. Okay, so that's the first thing. Secondly, we can't just say that what's on the outside is not true. Because when people become better on the inside, it shows on the outside as well.

00:20:21--> 00:20:32

There are some people who just dress a certain way, talk a certain way, quote, as quoted youth will express themselves based on the Sunnah, but their lives are completely away from Islam.

00:20:33--> 00:20:37

I'll give you an example. When I was a student in Malaysia,

00:20:39--> 00:20:45

in my second year, as a student there, we had a visiting professor,

00:20:47--> 00:20:56

a visiting professor from India, she was Hindu, not even Muslim. Okay, she came to class. Now this is I was doing my degree in

00:20:57--> 00:21:00

contemporary civic civilization, right.

00:21:01--> 00:21:10

And she came to class is it was like a delegation of visiting professors that came to the University. And this professor,

00:21:12--> 00:21:27

this, you know, this woman, she's Hindu, she came to class, to, you know, present her paper, research paper that she did on the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa, taala, that she's Hindu, she's not Muslim.

00:21:29--> 00:22:07

She was wearing a sari, which means, you know, her parts of her body were exposed, right, she was not completely covered. So that in itself was like how someone teaching about the names and attributes of the last time we've added, who's, you know, dressing this way, and so on. And of course, this is that's the way the world is like, people gain knowledge. But the thing here is not about how she was dressed, or what her Dean was or anything. It's the fact that her lecture about the oneness of Allah subhana wa Jana was one of the most powerful lectures that I've ever heard talking about a loss of Hannah Wojtek.

00:22:09--> 00:22:10

I was just like,

00:22:11--> 00:22:18

a lot. She's so knowledgeable in the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so he,

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

but she's not Muslim, she's Hindu.

00:22:24--> 00:22:36

Now sitting there listening to this lecture, and I was literally like, scratching my head. I'm like, how is this possible? I want everyone to hear this. I wish I, I wish I had recorded the lecture. It was just absolutely amazing.

00:22:38--> 00:22:43

And when she finished, you know, students ask questions, and so on. And I was embarrassed to ask my question.

00:22:45--> 00:22:47

publicly, you're in front of the whole class.

00:22:48--> 00:23:04

So after we finished, you know, went up to her and we're talking in Malaysia, after you're done anything, there's always food. Those of you who are Malaysian who are on here, you know very well, that as soon as you've done electricity, that a seminar, you've done something, there's always going to be food always. Okay.

00:23:05--> 00:23:15

So, you know, we're done the session, and we're walking away and I go up to her and I'm like, Professor, you know, my name is David so and so and

00:23:17--> 00:23:54

from Canada and graduated from Medina, doing my master's degree over here now, and she's like, Okay, that's good. And I was like, Listen, I need to ask you a question. How is it that you know so much about Allah subhanho wa Taala had, like, you know, so much about a lot you are quoting a out and Heidi, right, you are talking about the oneness of a loss so powerfully that it's, it's like hitting me up. I'm shocked that someone who can speak so well about a law doesn't believe in Allah. How is that? She's like, it's simple.

00:23:57--> 00:24:01

That's my degree, my my area of study and research.

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

And that's what I have knowledge

00:24:04--> 00:24:32

in. But in terms of belief, I'm a Hindu. I don't believe in in what I know. I was like, what, how do you not believe? How can you not believe in Allah after knowing all of this, she's like, Look, knowing what you guys know, as Muslims is amazing, right? Like, you know, there's so so many things that are so, so powerful, and a lot of that is true. She's like, I just don't believe in

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

and I thought to myself, this is what Allah Subhana Allah mentions in the end, multiple times in the Quran. In fact, we just learned about it, you know, in the last few weeks, how Allah subhanho wa Taala seals the hearts of those who reject his way.

00:24:49--> 00:24:51

That doesn't mean that

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

those whose hearts are sealed are not able to hear and to comprehend what Allah subhana wa tada is talking about in the

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

What are mentioning, they're able to hear it, they're able to try to understand it or to comprehend it or to analyze it, and bring it technicalities out. But

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

at the same time

00:25:15--> 00:25:16

their hearts are sealed.

00:25:17--> 00:25:34

last penny to Allah, when he mentions sealing their hearts, is that that knowledge can be in your minds, it can be on your tongue, it can be in your ears, you might be able to see it and read it, right. But it doesn't go deeper than that. It doesn't penetrate the heart.

00:25:36--> 00:26:13

That's absolutely powerful. And I was shocked. I remember going home. And you know, my wife, telling me my wife, we have daughter at the times Pamela was small. And you know, it's like you wouldn't believe like this visiting professor and I told her the little stories like she spoke about a law like, I haven't heard someone talk about a loss of handling data like this since I was in Medina. You know, like, the way she spoke about the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala. And she's like, why didn't you go up? Well, if asked me, she's like, why didn't you go up to her and give her Tao afterwards? And like, what more do you want me to give her? She knows so much about a loss of

00:26:13--> 00:26:24

handling data? Do you want me to do you know? And I did, I went, and I was like, asking, how is it that a person doesn't believe, after having all of this knowledge, she's like, I just don't believe in it.

00:26:25--> 00:26:35

I just don't believe in it. It's like, Wow, so have a look. And so my brothers and sisters, I need to learn how to respect the knowledge we have as believers and

00:26:37--> 00:26:57

respect the systemic knowledge that we get respect and learn how to implement it. Why is it important for me to understand Alhamdulillah? Here have been me, why is that so important? What? What's the significance of

00:26:59--> 00:27:00

just that?

00:27:03--> 00:27:06

What, why did I begin with this?

00:27:09--> 00:27:17

What does it mean? How does it affect me? Right? Now, of course, that's going to understanding what the Quran is saying.

00:27:18--> 00:27:39

But if we understand what the Quran is saying, but we're not going to let it get to the heart, then we're doing exactly in the example that I gave you that it's going in the ears, it's going up to the brain, it's in the eyes, in the on the tongue, it's not going down to the heart. It's not penetrating the heart. Because it means nothing. It's just black and white words.

00:27:40--> 00:28:04

And that's where my brothers and sisters, if we respect the knowledge that we're gaining, we understand the importance of the knowledge and where it came from, and who is actually saying this, right? Who said this? Who brought it down? Who gave the command for it to come down? Why are the lessons in the Quran so important? If they weren't important? Why would a lot even reveal it to us in the first place?

00:28:07--> 00:28:08

We need to ask ourselves these questions.

00:28:10--> 00:28:14

And that's why my brothers and sisters for the next few weeks in sha Allah hota Hana,

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

we're going to focus on

00:28:18--> 00:28:22

a dip values, morals,

00:28:23--> 00:28:26

good characteristics respect of the

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

and inshallah, who to hire that will help us to not only learn the point, earn,

00:28:36--> 00:28:53

but to value and cherish and hold on to what we learn of the crime. Because anyone can pick up a book and read and study and analyze and memorize it. But if it if it doesn't mean anything to you, like if I

00:28:54--> 00:28:56

have any books around me,

00:28:58--> 00:29:17

has to go out to get a book. But you know, if I pick up any book, and I say, Okay, here, we're gonna study this book, you'd be like, Why? What's the purpose of that? It's exactly it. We don't know why we're studying it. It's useless. Right? So again, we'll take the next few minutes to answer some questions and Sharla

00:29:19--> 00:29:21

let me just go through here and see if there's anything that came through

00:29:27--> 00:29:29


00:29:31--> 00:29:36

takes me back to a verse we have what is it? Okay, yeah, that's what I was just mentioning.

00:29:42--> 00:29:47

Any questions? Here's a Hello Hayden for talking about the topic. Alive antique sisters Saima

00:29:48--> 00:29:56

how the earlier of the sheep I heard how their early scholars paid for teaching and at the time of the Sahaba

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

Okay, that's good. We can we can

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

You know, dig in and get some,

00:30:02--> 00:30:12

some lessons about that. We can go further into trying to understand, you know what, there's a family that is banging on my window again. And

00:30:14--> 00:30:52

I, they want me to come and open the door, but I can't because I'm live streaming. And I don't like when people just come and bang on my window. It's just not right. You know, one of the reasons one of the one of the reasons why I decided to talk upon this topic for next week, and the next few weeks is because of this. I could remember yesterday I was telling you someone was banging on my window, you know, I got yelled at as well. Because the door the mustard is locked and I'm in my office and I'm either counseling or something you know, counseling, live streaming in a meeting, and so on. People come they bang on the wheel, like yelling and screaming, I don't open the door to the

00:30:52--> 00:31:22

mustard you're sitting inside. Where's the other? where's where's the manners? Where's the morals and the values? You know? Why is it that we're doing this? Can't be clearly clearly the three people were just standing outside my window. Clearly they can see that I have a spotlight shining on me I have three devices with tripods and stuff set up in front of me that's still there banging on it as though you none of you matter, right like they are more important than you. And this is where we need to learn

00:31:24--> 00:31:36

need to learn values we need to learn morals, how to respect each other how to treat one another how to understand what the other person is going through. absolutely important so

00:31:37--> 00:31:42

oh chef Mustapha Bob is on an asking questions Is it chef must have a

00:31:44--> 00:31:54

lot of energy I'm scared I'm scared *less I can I can bring you on you want me to bring you on to share screen we could bring you on and you can give us a lecture as well and Sharla

00:31:57--> 00:32:16

also wanted to know if you're holding on to an classes I need for my kids Okay, so the Quran classes in terms of learning to recite the Quran or teaching children how to recite the Quran. We do have those through the masjid go to the mustard website and you will find the details there and a lot of Tad

00:32:17--> 00:32:26

shift most of what you're saying send to a friend about a vehicle when if I become I mean why yeah come alive edaphic lazy could face

00:32:27--> 00:32:35

a question Schiff? If someone doesn't speak Arabic? How can they have a personal connection with the very good?

00:32:36--> 00:32:43

Schiff what's the for you should be the one answering this question. The only books that I keep close to me sure most of us are actually

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

copies of the clear coat.

00:32:51--> 00:33:06

Those are the only books that I keep next to me for people who are in need of an English translation of the Quran. So to answer your question, if someone doesn't speak Arabic, how can they have a personal connection with the Quran? Well,

00:33:08--> 00:33:50

I know a lot of people who don't speak Arabic, but they still have a personal connection with the Quran. First of all, they like to listen to the Quran, it just has an effect upon them and it reaches their heart. Secondly, by reading through a good translation of this is like shameless plugging, check my stuff, I always has a way to Mashallah encourage the reading of the Quran, which is good a translation of it. So the clear Quran is an amazing translation of the plan. And I still have some of these versions of it. Apparently, this is the American or the older version of it. I think. I'm not sure which one is which I have like every single edition or version of clear.

00:33:52--> 00:33:55

But developing that connection with a friend.

00:33:56--> 00:33:59

I could tell you from my own personal experience,

00:34:01--> 00:34:20

I started to find and develop a connection with God and when I was about 13 years old, and I didn't know any Arabic at all 13 1415 and it was because of my connection with God and through tilava through the recitation of the Quran

00:34:21--> 00:34:22

shift unwell

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

shift onweb Patel, who's actually you know, at the time was a student with me when I was studying and memorizing this was going back to 1993.

00:34:35--> 00:34:42

He used to teach me to delete one letter at a time. So he would teach me how to pronounce Elif properly.

00:34:43--> 00:34:44

He and

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

Jim how hot that was seen chainsaw dogfather is all the letters of the Arabic right language. Then he started to teach me the last 10 sutras of the Quran. One

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

at a time

00:35:01--> 00:35:07

and that was something that our teacher shifts are modifiable. Claudia are

00:35:09--> 00:35:34

not the homophobic that you guys and Mississauga no talking about the thorncliffe Claudia Armand fedele, he somehow the low was our teacher shift with a foot as well was my classmate, Chef horseman, his younger brother. We were also in the same class together. Chef Modine, awesome Rashid, soufiane Chopra, from Cambridge, we were all classmates back in the day, and it was one area at a time,

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

one verse at a time. So I'd be walking and I'd be saying,

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

rude, rude, rude.

00:35:51--> 00:35:52


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

rude. You know, you're just correcting yourself, based on what your teacher taught you. So I developed this relationship with the court and I'm just talking about me personally, everyone has their own thing some people is through listening through people, some people it's through reading, right? Some people it's through reading the translation, other people it's through, explaining the ayat and how it's relevant to their own personal life. For me, it was through the recitation of Quran and learn to perfect my recitation of the Quran, and develop this love for the Quran. And then my, my must have that I, you know, used when I was in Medina had words. So I was learning Arabic,

00:36:35--> 00:36:47

this is many years later, I'm learning Arabic now. And I didn't know Arabic back when I was 13, I only started learning the Arabic language, just before I turned 22. Right. This was when I went to Medina,

00:36:48--> 00:37:21

in 2002, and Subhanallah, the margin of my most have has an explanation of some of the words that are on that page. So you're now reading through the app that you've memorized. But you're starting to learn about what these verses actually meat. And so combining the two for me is important, learning to recite the Quran in Arabic, but learning what they mean as well. And putting that together, I find helps someone who is non Arab, to still connect with

00:37:22--> 00:37:34

as in someone who's not Arab speaking, Arabic speaking, to still connect with the Quran. Allah Adam, that's my answer for you. If you're even still there a lot you think.

00:37:36--> 00:37:40

Alright, let me check this Instagram account and see what's going on.

00:37:41--> 00:37:43

Any questions?

00:37:48--> 00:37:58

That came up, Sam, are they cool are there I know there are classes for kids in grade seven and above does the muster to offer something for younger kids. So sister

00:38:00--> 00:38:14

ish, we did have something that we started for younger children just before the pandemic. However, when the pandemic started, I only did I think two or three weeks of that class and it was for it was for younger children

00:38:16--> 00:38:29

12 and below, I believe right at the age of 12 and below, and we didn't have the ability to continue with those classes because of the pandemic. However, we're still doing things like this Friday night family program,

00:38:30--> 00:39:06

and shot a lot of data. A few other things that we'll be starting up sometime soon. I was doing like a live Instagram, and recitation. I don't know how many of you would take part in that. But that is something that inshallah we could start up once again, and is basically just, you know, I recite a page, I recite like a few verses, your child recites a few verses, and I correct them every now and then. And then someone else comes on and we share screen. So I would, you know, do split screen on Instagram, and they get to recite, and everyone, you know, can can take part in that. So that was something that we used to do as well.

00:39:09--> 00:39:16

So that's that if no one has any more questions, are there online classes for you, which is just finished answering that?

00:39:17--> 00:39:30

If there are no more questions, then we will end the session because I'm going to need to go and unlock the door. So no one comes banging on my window again. Ask him you open the door.

00:39:32--> 00:39:51

And somehow a lot. I truly wish that if there's something that we've learned, and we've learned to respect the clan, and we learn the morals and values that are linked to the quota, and it's not just for the quota, and it's about learning what is important for us to respect Islamic knowledge.

00:39:54--> 00:39:56

Okay, respecting Islamic knowledge

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

DC Barry

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

DC Perry, if you're asking about classes for children between the ages of four and five I think Schaefer is

00:40:10--> 00:40:30

one of the teachers who works under Schaefer they float through the mustard is looking after that age group. So, again, the information for the classes is on the mustard website. You can get in touch with Schaefer from our mustard here, the seven community center of Milton, and He will give you all the details and put you

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

give you all the details that you need shout louder.

00:40:35--> 00:41:04

Strive teach my kids to see and bit by bit is there any specific publication of word to word translation that you recommend for kids? Yes, Chef Mr. Fogg has a kid's version and I think he's only got one just out right now of a translation for children of the Korean ship was very still on you still didn't give me my coffee shop. I'll buy it for you from you double the price if you want. But I want you to give it to me in person.

00:41:06--> 00:41:16

I want to receive it from you directly. So check my stuff I'm not sure if you're still on but people are asking about the kids version. So yes, shift was difficult. Bob has a

00:41:18--> 00:41:30

a translation that is kid friendly for children so that they can understand the end and that's being worked on. There's a job that's already out there. So please do research it if you go to for fun.

00:41:34--> 00:41:39

Where is the website? And for Khan foundation

00:41:45--> 00:42:05

Um, the lashes and stuff are still there. So he says it's the clear coat forward slash kids go earn.

00:42:06--> 00:42:12

So the clear coat forward slash kids.

00:42:13--> 00:42:41

Okay, I encourage every single one of you to get a copy of it. I personally haven't gotten my copy I was supposed to a while back and I got busy with every other thing that's that's been happening. And shift monster has been so busy that I don't see him anymore. And I wish I did. Especially I used to see him once a month at our monthly imams meetings. But most of all, we need to get together and not have any need to get together and have some good food and shelter

00:42:42--> 00:42:54

like that if he can. So that brings us pretty much to the end Santa Monica. My question is related to IP rights. And it stems from scholars say that the route that we're setting the identities here has an authentic generation. Okay.

00:42:57--> 00:43:37

I answered this question recently. But I'm going to ask you to message me and I will get you the answer inshallah. Okay, just messaged me. Been a long day Fridays are really long days. And I don't want to give you the wrong answer. So message me privately. inshallah. I'll give you the right answer for that. Okay. Does that come a little fade on? shift Mustafa, and everyone else are you about to feed me Allah subhanho wa Taala put Baraka and hate in your lives. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala facilitate what you wish to gain in this dunya as well as having the highest levels of Paradise, as can blossom handle with Allah to allow us to be to continue to have these sessions and

00:43:37--> 00:43:59

that the numbers grow and continue to grow. We're actually live streaming on five different platforms right now. So that's pretty cool. We have to Instagram to YouTube and one Facebook account that we're live streaming all at the same time. And if you're going to ship my coffee to me, are you going to deliver it to me, I don't want you to deliver it, I will come to you, but I want it from your hand.

00:44:00--> 00:44:02

Because I can locate it. And you know what

00:44:04--> 00:44:15

I want I actually was going to post this online, I would like for us to maybe get together and purchase an entire box of not only the floor plan

00:44:16--> 00:44:43

to give away so this would be a sadhaka because what I usually do is I usually get a box myself and then like personally and give it out and I meet a lot of people and I give them out to whoever needs but for the kids, I think we should get together and sha Allah whoever needs we can you know, definitely get a box if you go to the clear coat forward slash kids code and you'll be able to see that there inshallah

00:44:44--> 00:44:59

fick related questions Where can I reach out for it to be answered Satish? This was the time to ask that question. But I'm going to end this session now. So if you want Feel free to message me on instagram in sha Allah, and I'll be able to get
