smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Abdullah slotless Qatar schemata Dena Muhammad Allah live savage mine. Salam Alaikum wa rahmatullah. Welcome to our first session of alumina, Quran, the sciences of the Quran.

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

Today inshallah and this subject

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

that's what you're trying to cover.

00:00:26--> 00:00:29

We will start first with the importance of the Quran

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

Why do we study aluminum Quran?

00:00:34--> 00:00:40

This subject is very important, since it is related to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:00:41--> 00:00:50

you're studying the Word of Allah Spano tala. Usually they say if you wanted to know the importance of something, you need to know what it's talking about.

00:00:51--> 00:01:02

So, this knowledge that you're taking today, inshallah, it's related to the book of Allah. That's why it is very important. These are the words of Allah subhanaw taala that we are studying.

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

So

00:01:06--> 00:01:07

it is very important.

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

Imagine

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

someone sent you a letter,

00:01:15--> 00:01:19

your dearest friend, and you haven't seen him for a long time?

00:01:20--> 00:01:33

Aren't you going to open this letter and read it and reread it again and again? Because you love him. So, this is the message of the messenger salad that came from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:01:34--> 00:01:36

So, it is important.

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

However, before we start, inshallah, there is one obstacle.

00:01:45--> 00:01:49

Remember that the Quran was revealed in Arabic. So

00:01:50--> 00:02:07

in order to understand the Quran perfectly, you need to learn Arabic, yet we will try our best inshallah, to overcome this obstacle. We'll try to clarify everything as much as we can. Because

00:02:08--> 00:02:22

what we will study is the translation. There is no Quran in any other language but in Arabic, once you try to move the Quran from Arabic to another language, it's not Quran anymore. There is translation.

00:02:23--> 00:02:47

So the Quran itself in Arabic, if you're studying the Arabic text, then you are studying the Quran. If you're studying the English, the translation then you are not studying the Quran, you are studying the translation. So this is the only problem. However, as I told you, this should not be a big deal. We know lots of people, although they don't know Arabic, but they memorize the Quran.

00:02:48--> 00:02:51

Although they don't understand Arabic but Mashallah

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

they understand what does the I mean?

00:02:56--> 00:03:02

So, you will get lots of knowledge inshallah, even with the English translation, that's what you're trying to do.

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

Now scholars say,

00:03:07--> 00:03:11

Allah subhanaw taala sent down the Quran for three reasons.

00:03:13--> 00:03:14

That's the purpose of

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

revealing the Quran.

00:03:18--> 00:03:20

There are three reasons.

00:03:21--> 00:03:24

One, reciting, and memorizing the Quran.

00:03:25--> 00:03:33

Allah subhanaw taala sent the Quran to us to recite it to read it as Allah says, what a serial killer. So this is the first

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

reason why Allah sent down the Quran.

00:03:39--> 00:03:48

The second reason, it's not enough only to read the Quran, but you need to ponder on and reflect on the meanings of what you are reading.

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

So this is the second purpose.

00:03:54--> 00:04:01

The third purpose of sending down the Quran is to implement it, to apply the Quran in our daily life.

00:04:03--> 00:04:38

So you need to read the Quran recited, understand it, memorize it and apply it. Once you do this, then you achieve the purpose of the Quran why it was revealed. Now you may notice some people they memorize the Quran, but they don't implement it. So they did not fulfill the purpose of the Quran. Other people they can recite the Quran perfectly Mashallah. But again, once it comes to application, they don't do that. So we have to work on these three things

00:04:41--> 00:04:44

are an it's the strong rope of Allah to hold.

00:04:46--> 00:04:49

It's the message of wisdom to believe.

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

And it is the straight path to follow.

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

That's the Quran.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

evil thoughts will never corrupt it.

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

And we could tongs will never distort it.

00:05:09--> 00:05:14

How much you study it, it will never wear out. Nor shall it cease to inspire.

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

scholars will never be able to face them. It's that

00:05:21--> 00:05:28

whoever utters it speaks the truth. Whoever acts upon it shall be rewarded.

00:05:35--> 00:05:38

Whoever judges according to it does justice.

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

Whoever preaches it

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

calls to truth,

00:05:43--> 00:05:46

whoever turns away from it, in arrogance

00:05:47--> 00:06:05

is doomed. And whoever seeks guidance elsewhere is lost. Now, these are the translations of the words of one of the Hadith of the messenger Selim. Although it's a weak Hadith, it is mentioned in the book you have the book who has the introduction

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

of when Tamia Rahim Allah

00:06:10--> 00:06:11

did you bring it with you?

00:06:12--> 00:06:17

The Book of Tafseer Okay, it is there. So don't worry if you did not write everything.

00:06:19--> 00:06:30

Again, this is one of the things that if you missed something, you could ask me I could repeat it. or later on, you could catch it. So it is there it is in the book. It isn't the introduction of the deficit.

00:06:32--> 00:06:41

These are very powerful meanings of the Quran and it's true. All what is there is true about the Quran. If you act according to the Quran, you are doing justice.

00:06:43--> 00:06:49

You if you call a few preach the Quran, you are calling to the truth is the true message of philosophy.

00:06:53--> 00:06:56

Now, what's the meaning of the Quran?

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

The Quran when we say Quran, what does it mean?

00:07:01--> 00:07:09

Quran comes from the root word. Cora. Cora, three letters in Arabic are

00:07:11--> 00:07:14

are a means to recite.

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

So the Quran means they're excited

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

because you recite the Quran

00:07:21--> 00:07:33

every time remember, the first word was revealed in the Quran was what? The Quran What does it mean the croc? Read, recite, or an means recited.

00:07:35--> 00:07:43

Also one of the meanings of the Quran the other meaning of the Quran is gathered. Macro means it is gathered.

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

So the Quran, it is the gathering,

00:07:47--> 00:07:49

because it gathers all the rulings

00:07:50--> 00:07:51

and the news

00:07:53--> 00:08:03

of previous nations of the messengers of the Day of Judgment. That's why it's called or so basically we have two meanings

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

for the Quran.

00:08:08--> 00:08:08

What does it mean?

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

Now, what's the definition of the Quran?

00:08:23--> 00:08:24

The Quran

00:08:25--> 00:08:33

is the miraculous Book of Allah subhanaw taala which is revealed which was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:08:34--> 00:08:42

That's the Quran. It is a miraculous book revealed from Allah subhanaw taala it was sent down from Allah subhanaw taala to the Messenger of Allah.

00:08:44--> 00:09:07

Furthermore, it starts with Al Fatiha and it ends with us. Now one thing in a knowledge in seeking knowledge, which is very important is the definitions. You need to know the definitions. Now someone came to you and asked you to define the Quran and we want the answer. I want to hear the answer. What's the definition of the Quran?

00:09:08--> 00:09:12

Now we just answered it but if you are asked, What's the definition of the Quran, what would you say?

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

What would you say?

00:09:19--> 00:09:35

The word of Allah Most of the people they will tell you what, the word of Allah right? Well, that's not enough. It's true. The Quran is the word of Allah. But when you say it's the word of Allah, it includes also other things other than the Quran. Isn't the gospel, the word of Allah?

00:09:37--> 00:09:44

Yes, we're not talking whether it's changed or not, was it the word of Allah Allah? So you have to define a specific thing, the Quran.

00:09:46--> 00:09:58

Forget about the Old Testament, the New Testament, the other books, there's a bow, the Torah, the NGO. What about the hadith of divine narrated? It is the word of Allah subhanaw taala. But it's not Quran.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

So once

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

You define something you have to make it specific. It gives all the meanings of that thing. And it excludes all other things from it. So when you say the word of Allah and you stop, it's not enough. Yes, it is the word of Allah. But not every word of Allah is.

00:10:17--> 00:10:41

Not when you say it is the miraculous book, because the other words of Allah in the divine narrative, they are not necessarily miraculous. Once you say it's miraculous, you limited it to only the Quran. Once you say it starts with Al Fatiha and ends with an S then nothing else but the Quran, you talking only about the Quran. Some people add to this,

00:10:42--> 00:10:50

which recited in the prayer, they add to it, recite it in the prayer. Can you recite any other words of Allah in the prayer other than the Quran?

00:10:51--> 00:11:08

You cannot, you are standing you cannot say all my servants, I forbade injustice and I made it forbidden for you. This is the word of Allah but you cannot say it in the prayer. You can only read the Quran. So that's the definition of the Quran. People may ask you what's the definition of the Quran?

00:11:13--> 00:11:16

Now these are the topics of this subject.

00:11:17--> 00:11:20

Now remember, we're talking about sciences of the Quran.

00:11:21--> 00:11:36

It's not only one science or lwml, plant sciences, lots of things. We have the reasons of Revelation, why this plan was revealed. We have the reasons of Revelation, we have the mechi and the madonie.

00:11:37--> 00:11:50

There are some as revealed before the Hydra, there are some is revealed after the Hydra. So we need to know the mechi and the madonie. Also of the types of the sciences of the Quran, the way the Quran is revealed.

00:11:53--> 00:11:57

And this is in the second Hadith in Sahih Bukhari

00:11:58--> 00:12:08

when I shall delana asked the messenger Salaam, how the why or messenger of Allah comes to you how the revelation comes to you. This is also another type of the sciences of the Quran.

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

of the sciences of the Quran, the numbers

00:12:12--> 00:12:15

of the ayat and the sudras how many sources in the Quran

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

114 how many if

00:12:20--> 00:12:28

we need to know it system, the Book of Allah subhanaw taala. So we will know that how many letters how many words

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

we will know inshallah, we will know

00:12:33--> 00:12:34

because the Quran is their

00:12:36--> 00:12:41

stories of the Quran. Now Allah subhanaw taala mentioned several stories in the Quran for a reason.

00:12:42--> 00:12:52

So we will we will not read stories of the Quran, the miracles of the Quran, actually we will start inshallah, next session with the miracles of the Quran.

00:12:56--> 00:13:01

We have the different recitations you will get to know inshallah also the recitations of the Quran.

00:13:05--> 00:13:10

Also the parables and the Proverbs of the Quran, you will know the parables

00:13:11--> 00:13:12

proverbs of the Quran.

00:13:17--> 00:13:40

The protection and preserving of the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, Allah will have given basically the historical preview how the Quran was preserved, because Allah subhanaw taala witnessed and testified that the Quran is preserved, no one can change it. So we need to go through the Historical Review of the Quran how it was preserved.

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

scribing the Quran again part of

00:13:46--> 00:13:50

one of the sciences of the Quran scribing the Quran how it was crying,

00:13:51--> 00:14:02

because even we have something called the ultimate scripture, the ultimate script how it was according to the Allah one. So there was a reason

00:14:03--> 00:14:08

the words of the Quran are not similarly as we write them in regular

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

letters or regular writing, they are different, why we will get to know that inshallah also

00:14:17--> 00:14:19

dividing the Quran two to

00:14:20--> 00:14:45

two, or by dividing the Quran we know that we have 32 or 30 chapters in the Quran, we know that but then each chapter has to has so we have 60 has been the Quran we will come to know that also one of the sciences of the Quran and walk and look at that word to stop sometimes if you stop on this ayah you will give a different meaning. This is by itself is a miracle. We will get to know that inshallah.

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

The first thing revealed and the last thing what what's the first if we know what's the first day but what's the last day? What's the first rule? What's the last hurrah all of these things are part of the sciences of the craft.

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

The seven different styles or what we say

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

and for Saba

00:15:07--> 00:15:17

messenger Sallam said the Quran was revealed on seven styles, seven different styles sebata will come to know this is actually related to the Quran the recitations.

00:15:19--> 00:15:22

Now, I listed here only 14 different types.

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

Some scholars mentioned at

00:15:28--> 00:15:31

different type of the sciences of the Quran at

00:15:34--> 00:15:51

So, there is a book called al it can feel a little foreign perfection in the sciences of the Quran. For example, Rahim Allah, this is one of the great books, I don't think it's translated to English, it's in Arabic, there is 80 types of sciences of the Quran, I just listed few of them

00:15:52--> 00:15:58

our job inshallah to know as much as we can. Now the most important

00:15:59--> 00:16:12

type of the sciences of the plan is the FCC. The FCC is like the mother of all these sciences, because each one of them is related to the FCC in a way or another. So that's what we will focus on the deficit,

00:16:13--> 00:16:23

through the deficit inshallah, we will know more types of the sciences of the Quran, when we study the ayah tilaka. The Art of the rulings of

00:16:24--> 00:16:36

the Sharia of Islam, it is related to the Tafseer when we study the stories of the Quran, it is also related to the tafsir. So, the FC is like the major type of the sciences of the Quran.

00:16:40--> 00:16:47

Now, before we start inshallah, with with these sciences, we need to know the virtue of recitation.

00:16:50--> 00:16:54

Again, one of the reasons why the Quran was revealed is to resign the Quran.

00:16:57--> 00:17:01

But the question comes, what am I going to get if I recited the Quran?

00:17:02--> 00:17:04

Remember the Hadith of the messenger of Salah Salem

00:17:05--> 00:17:07

narrated by when Massoud or the alarm?

00:17:09--> 00:17:12

If you recite one letter, you will get them hassanal

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

do not think Alif Lam mean one letter.

00:17:18--> 00:17:29

The prophet SAW Selim said Elif is one letter, lamb, one letter mean another letter. So once you say le flam mean how many has enough 30

00:17:31--> 00:17:35

in a matter of two seconds, you get 30 Hassan 30

00:17:37--> 00:17:44

so once you all you remember the reward of the Quran, you will keep on reciting the Quran. This is very important.

00:17:48--> 00:17:51

multiply this by the ayat of the Quran.

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

Then the letters and the words how much you will get.

00:17:59--> 00:18:02

You want to become a millionaire. It's easy.

00:18:04--> 00:18:05

That's why I asked you.

00:18:06--> 00:18:15

When was the last time you finished reciting the entire Quran. It is important to you say you are a Muslim you believe in Allah subhanaw taala and people look at you as Muslim.

00:18:16--> 00:18:22

Yet you don't recite the Quran, there is a problem. So in sha Allah, we need to recite the Quran more and more.

00:18:24--> 00:18:28

Not only reciting the Quran, but the next step is to memorize the Quran.

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

You recite the ayah then you memorize it.

00:18:35--> 00:18:39

There is a hadith narrated by Al Hakim

00:18:40--> 00:18:50

in the mustard rock, and others on the Day of Judgment. The prophet SAW Selim said on the day after the Quran will come like a frail man, like a weak man.

00:18:51--> 00:18:55

The one who who's memorized the Quran will be told to

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

recite and

00:18:58--> 00:19:01

he will be elevated with every iron.

00:19:03--> 00:19:19

He will be taught read and recite and ascend as you used to recite in the this dunya your rank will be at the last if you stop and so let's say someone memorized 400 if

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

that means he will.

00:19:23--> 00:19:40

He will be lifted 400 extra ranks when you do a good deed you will get hassled but when you memorize this is extra. Someone finished the entire core and he will get 6236 extra ranks. That is extra

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

60 236

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

o'clock water bottle can account for in demand zillah Taka in the UK he is in the cloud. This is in both sidebar and Muslim but the continuation for this hadith when the Quran comes like the frail man this is in an hacking

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

What does it say in this hadith

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

The one who memorize the Quran

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

will be crowned

00:20:10--> 00:20:14

with a crown that is better than the entire dunya

00:20:17--> 00:20:33

one Emerald one Ruby in this crown, it will be better than the entire dunya. And not only that, his parents will be dressed with nice garments. And they will say, Oh Allah, why we are dressed like that.

00:20:34--> 00:21:15

Now, these are the parents, not the one who memorize the Quran, they will be told because of the memorization of your son to the Quran, because your son memorize the Quran. So imagine, if someone memorize the Quran, he will not only benefit himself, but also he will benefit his parents as well. So there is a great reward in memorizing the Quran, you will benefit yourself and you will benefit your family. But again, as I said, it's not only the mere memorization without understanding the meaning without implementing the Quran in your life. That's the true memorization, as the companions understood, they did not exceed 10 because they wanted to memorize and they wanted to implement what

00:21:15--> 00:21:37

they memorize. So there is a great reward in reciting the Quran. In memorizing the Quran. Nowadays, if someone told you work for me for one hour, and they'll pay you $200 you'll be happy $200 nobody pays $200 they pay $10 1525 you get 200 Well, here you are getting 10 has an app in less than a second.

00:21:38--> 00:21:49

So at least as a student of knowledge, you need at least half an hour, one hour every day. Just to read the Quran. People spend hours watching TV, reading the paper

00:21:50--> 00:21:56

online. What about the Quran? Allah subhanaw taala. So you need to,

00:21:57--> 00:22:03

to read more, sha Allah make this the first day to increase your recitation and memorization to the Quran.

00:22:05--> 00:22:14

Here we will stop now in sha Allah and we will allow for any question if there is any, regarding what we mentioned so far.

00:22:19--> 00:22:24

Of course, I mean, the one who the child who memorize the Quran

00:22:25--> 00:22:28

and reward there is no discrimination between males and females.

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

Yeah.

00:22:33--> 00:22:33

Any other question?

00:22:40--> 00:22:43

topics we covered today? Which topics?

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

No, no, this is through our study inshallah.

00:22:48--> 00:22:50

We cannot cover 15 topics.

00:22:51--> 00:22:56

Actually. Some topics they will require two three weeks depends.

00:22:59--> 00:23:04

Yeah, we will. This is I mentioned part of the curriculum for the three years.

00:23:10--> 00:23:16

This is the subject of the Tafseer and sciences of the Quran. That's what we're studying. And actually there are a few topics that we will never cover.

00:23:18--> 00:23:30

But we will, I will guarantee inshallah, that by the end of the three years, you will be better than anyone who studied in any other college as long as you do your assignment and you do your homework inshallah.

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

You had a question.

00:23:37--> 00:23:38

frail man, yes.

00:23:40--> 00:24:09

This will it be the person resigning, but I'm like, like, for example, I read the Quran and then on the day of judgment on that I read will come in a form of a fail men are this Yes, yes, everyone individually however much? Well, the interpretation may vary a lot. But that's what the messenger Salim said that on the Day of Judgment, the man who memorize the Quran, he will come and he will see.

00:24:10--> 00:24:26

The Quran he memorized will come like a frail man. So the man who memorized the Quran will ask that frail man Who are you? The frail man will tell him I am the Quran. I am the one that caused you to to wake up the night to recite me

00:24:28--> 00:24:39

to start in the day to recite me to memorize today. That's what the Quran will say today and the Day of Judgment today. Everyone will be behind his his deeds and I am

00:24:41--> 00:24:42

backing you.

00:24:43--> 00:24:47

So the one who memorized the Quran will be given the kingship

00:24:48--> 00:24:54

for your Tamaki emini, he will be given the kingship in his right hand and eternity in his left hand

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

and he will be crowned. Now I mentioned the Hadith briefly, but like

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

could give you the entire Howdy. This is just a reminder to tell you how important is it to memorize the Quran and to implement it and to recite it. So that's about this hadith.

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

Any other question?

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

Yes.

00:25:21--> 00:25:30

Again the benefits of the parents especially the parents who encourage their children to memorize the Quran, they will be dressed with two garments, two beautiful garments.

00:25:31--> 00:25:41

And they will be surprised because they don't deserve it. They will ask Allah Subhana Allah why we will dress like that and they will tell them because of the memorization of your son. Because your son memorize the Quran?

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

Yes.

00:25:51--> 00:25:56

No, I'm sorry, that's not the definition. That's the meaning of the word para macro,

00:26:04--> 00:26:09

macro or an means macro means recited or gathered.

00:26:10--> 00:26:11

These are the two meanings
