Salam Alaikum

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

Welcome to our class of alumina Quran. Today inshallah we will talk about essential information about the Quran. These basic information should be known by every Muslim, let alone the student of knowledge. So all of us have to know these information, we will start with the number of the source of the Quran.

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

As we all know, the Quran has 114 sewers. But before that, what's the meaning of the surah?

00:00:39--> 00:00:44

We say the Quran has 114 sources. But what's the meaning of the surah?

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

What's the meaning of this surah. The surah has two meanings.

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

The surah has two meanings. The first meaning

00:00:56--> 00:01:01

it's taken from the word sewer. And so in Arabic means wall.

00:01:03--> 00:01:23

And why it's called wall because it it has an area limited with it. It encompasses something. So that's the meaning of the surah. It it's encompassing, I act inside it. That's why it's chapter another meaning of the surah elevation.

00:01:24--> 00:01:32

Because once you read a surah you are elevating yourself. So basically we have two meanings for surah

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

Ayah the meaning of the ayah is sign

00:01:39--> 00:02:17

Ayah means sign. And it's used in the Quran, or color on the beam in the ayah Tamaki and the Prophet told them the sign of his kingship. This is sort of the Baccarat so it means sign. And every IR scholars say every eye in the Quran is a sign from Allah subhanho wa Taala every eye it is a sign from Allah that's why I like to call it I instead of verse, the same thing for surah you better call it surah instead of chapter. So we have ayah and we have surah we have 114 surah in the Quran.

00:02:18--> 00:02:25

What's the first surah was revealed in the Quran? What's the first surah Does anyone know?

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

A crop

00:02:31--> 00:02:32

is a soda or if

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

it's if we are talking about soda.

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

I look

00:02:41--> 00:02:46

it's not our Alma de fer Exactly. We have few ayat

00:02:48--> 00:03:06

revealed from Surah Allah, that's true. Arabic Allah Allah, but we have an entire surah was revealed at first, after this ad from Santa Clara, from salata, Allah, this surah is Surah Al modesitt surah modified was the first surah to reveal

00:03:09--> 00:03:12

what's the first ayah we all know it is.

00:03:14--> 00:03:18

Arabic Allah, Allah, this is the first day What's the last surah

00:03:19--> 00:03:20


00:03:21--> 00:03:23

The last entire Surah

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

Surah three

00:03:27--> 00:03:29

is not sort of why well.

00:03:33--> 00:03:56

There is a famous story about this surah when it was revealed, the companions were happy, but abubaker odilon cried because he knew that the death of the messenger Salaam is approaching. once something is perfect, then it will start declining. So prophets are seldom delivered the message so it's time for him to leave. So this was the last surah What's the last I

00:03:57--> 00:03:57

revealed from

00:04:01--> 00:04:02

what's the last day?

00:04:06--> 00:04:09

Leo magma telecom Dena when this ayah was revealed.

00:04:12--> 00:04:13

Today I completed

00:04:15--> 00:04:19

your religion and perfected my favor upon you. When was this idea reveal?

00:04:20--> 00:04:21

And where do you know

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

you should all know.

00:04:24--> 00:04:39

It was revealed in Mecca during the Hajj of the messenger Salah. This was like three months before the death of the messenger Salim Don't you think that in these three months no single eye was revealed afterwards.

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

There is an opinion of course says this is the last time but it's a weak opinion.

00:04:47--> 00:04:57

The strong opinion says it is what appears to mentor Jonah fee Illallah I am number 281 from Surah Al Baqarah What up yo yo mentor Jonah fee Illallah

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

another opinion says look at the job.

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

Commercial aluminium for sicoma zanella hanani to the last two Ayat of surah October.

00:05:08--> 00:05:36

So there are few opinions about what's the last day I was revealed. By the way, all these information are mentioned in the introduction of the book, The Tafseer of Finca theory katheer Rahim Allah, you have the Tafseer volume number one, it's important to read the first 50 pages. This is mandatory. Now you don't have to turn in something for me this is your homework. You have to read the first 50 pages of it have seen have been Kathir

00:05:37--> 00:05:42

no know the tafsir of filming Kathy, the first volume, the first 50 pages

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

you read the first 50 pages of this book?

00:05:55--> 00:06:01

Yeah, next week because we will start with with the next one for next class. So we have other information.

00:06:03--> 00:06:09

How many is in the Quran? Now we know we have 114 soldiers but how many is in the Quran?

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

Have you ever read the Quran?

00:06:15--> 00:06:20

You read the Quran? Didn't you read the comments on the back of the Quran?

00:06:23--> 00:06:38

mostly in Arabic. Yeah, that's true, actually. But if you're able to read the Quran in Arabic, you should be able to read this. Here at the end of the Quran. There are a few comments, basic information, it's important to read it.

00:06:39--> 00:06:49

We mentioned the number of the ayat, the number of the ayat is 60 236 6236.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

This is the number of the

00:06:53--> 00:06:54

according to another

00:06:55--> 00:07:01

narration to the other camera, it's 60 216.

00:07:02--> 00:07:40

So we have two ways two methods of counting the ayat. Now some people would think that there is a problem. If you say 60 236 and you say 60 216 there is a difference of 16 are these ayat from the Quran or not? So you say the Quran is preserved. Now we have 16 iron, where are they? Actually the Quran itself is preserved but the way you calculate the ayat, it's the same Quran, but where you stop, is this the end of the ayah or it's a continuation and the next ayah comes later? That's the difference.

00:07:41--> 00:08:10

Basically, the people of Basra they have their own method and the people of Kufa. Now this Quran that we have and inshallah we'll talk about it in details when we speak about the Quran at this Quran is according to have son acid acid is from Kufa. Awesome I've been I've been new Judah poofy. So this is the method of the people of Kufa. According to them, it's 60 236. According to the people of Basra and the Medina, it's 60 216.

00:08:12--> 00:08:36

Again, do not think that there are some is missing, it is the same Quran, the only difference is the way they count the ayat. And according to the stopping of the messenger SOS lm, where did the prophet SAW Selim pause? Was it to stop? So was it the end of the ayah or it was only a pause and there is a continuation for this I that's how they try to calculate and measure the ix.

00:08:37--> 00:08:49

And again, it's not a big deal. Why because we have the Quran. The only difference is whether this is the end of the eye or not. And in the entire Quran, you have only 16 differences, which is very

00:08:50--> 00:09:01

simple and trivial difference. And the entire Quran out of 6000 you have almost less than 1% difference. So it's almost the same.

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

Another type, which is important to know is the mucky and the maddening,

00:09:09--> 00:09:20

the mucky and the muddy. We have sewers called sewer macchia and we have sewers called sewer madonia. This is by itself a separate type of sciences of the Quran

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

and we will study it inshallah.

00:09:25--> 00:09:30

How many sewers now, we said there are 114 sewers, how many of them

00:09:31--> 00:09:37

are my key sources and how many of them are many sources and which is more than a key source or the many sources.

00:09:38--> 00:09:41

The MKII is more Why?

00:09:42--> 00:09:58

Because they are small. Well, if you say the main key sources you have to mention the number because size wise the madonie sutras are more but number wise Yes you are right. The MKI are much more and this is the number we have 82 meccan Suras

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

We have 20 Medina source now 82 plus 20. what's the what's the total?

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

One or two?

00:10:08--> 00:10:12

So what happened? We have 12 more servers, where did they go?

00:10:14--> 00:10:41

There is a difference of opinions upon these 12 servers whether they are murky and muddy. And again, it is not not a big deal. Why? Because whether it's a monkey or Madden, it's there. It's in the Quran. But whether you say it's murky or muddy, there is only 12 sutras scholars differ about these 12 sources whether they are lucky or not any and again, all these information are in the introduction of the tafsir of living Cathy Rahim Allah and the first volume of the tafsir.

00:10:43--> 00:10:57

So 82 scholars agreed they are they revealed in Mecca and 20 soldiers that revealed in Medina for sure. And there are 12 sutras there is a difference of opinions, whether they were revealed in Mecca or in Medina.

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

How many words are there in the Quran?

00:11:03--> 00:11:15

Now, we said there is there is 60 236 is how many words we have 77,439 words

00:11:16--> 00:11:17

of the Quran

00:11:18--> 00:11:39

77,439 words, again, whether because even this number is distinct, disputable, some people debate about this number and they say there are like 20 more words or less. So it's not a big deal. That's the approximate number for the words of the Quran.

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

How many letters

00:11:42--> 00:11:48

in the Quran? Now you wonder why why do we even read this or talk about it?

00:11:49--> 00:11:55

Once you you, you mentioned these small details, you know how scholars early

00:11:56--> 00:12:25

they cared about the Quran, they wanted to figure out everything in the Quran. So they calculated even the letters of the Quran. And nowadays Alhamdulillah we have many different prints fancy prints of the Quran in different editions different languages, but people are reading less. While at their time they used to read more and more and that's why they cared more and they wanted to know everything about the Quran. So they calculated the letters and they came came up with this number

00:12:26--> 00:12:30

340,740 letters

00:12:32--> 00:12:39

multiply this by 10 so you will get almost 3 million and half Hashanah

00:12:40--> 00:12:56

by reading the entire Quran. So again if you want to be a millionaire with the Quran, with the Quran and you will become inshallah millionaire, multi millionaire actually, one time you read the Quran from cover to cover, that's the number of the Hassan it will get.

00:12:58--> 00:13:09

So it is 340,740 that's the number of the letters and again it is approximate there is some difference

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

like within 100 or 200.

00:13:14--> 00:13:23

Now the Quran we know that it is divided to 30 Jews, everybody knows that it starts with the first Jews and it ends with the 30th Jews of the Quran.

00:13:24--> 00:13:31

Each Jews is divided to two as has been a while and that has bitten

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

to zap

00:13:36--> 00:13:46

has forms one just to absorb means one just has been a while and has within each user has to has each has is divided to

00:13:47--> 00:13:53

four divisions. So we have robot has nurse has the rothermel has and

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

the beginning of the second has

00:13:58--> 00:14:06

now the Quran according to this copy, according to the copy of the complex of Kings that

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

it has six or four pages

00:14:11--> 00:14:38

according to this division, and of course all the neurons are divided to this division of the Quran they have 30 pages there is no Quran with less or more of the grants have to has. So according to this every quarter has is approximately two and a half pages, multiply two and half by four, then by two, then by 30 you will come to the number 600.

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

And why we have 600 not 600 or four as we have in this book because the first two pages is very small. And then at the end also just the AMA there are lots of sutras in it. So the the number of pages, almost almost every 20 pages is one juice. Every 20 pages is wonderful.

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

Now these information again, is important for you You need to know them as a Muslim you need to know that after I read two and a half pages you will find a new beginning for

00:15:12--> 00:15:40

a new robot has quarter has and some some are ends. Now this quarter and we have 15 lines. In this plan, we have 15 lines, some Quran you have almost 19 lines. So if it's 19 lines, then it's almost two pages every robot has and the juice is almost 15 pages instead of 20 or even less 14 pages proximately depends on the Quran you read.

00:15:41--> 00:16:06

So these information are basic information you should know how do you read the Quran? At the time of the companions, they did not have these divisions 30 chose to has this came later. But rather in the Quran, we have the way of the companions at the time of the messenger Salaam. They had their own way, what was their own way? This is what's narrated by aos.

00:16:08--> 00:16:23

Rahim Allah, he asked the companions of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. How do you divide the Quran? What's the method to divide the Quran and that's the number they told him 357 911 and 13.

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

And then the rest.

00:16:26--> 00:16:27

So how many divisions,

00:16:29--> 00:16:30

seven divisions.

00:16:31--> 00:16:50

Most of the companions, they used to read the Quran and finish it in one week. Some of them used to finish the Quran in three days, because the prophet SAW Selim disliked reading the entire Quran in less than three days. And that's why I asked you at the first day, how many times you finished the Quran,

00:16:52--> 00:16:58

you should at least finish it if not every week, every two weeks or every month, at least read one juice

00:16:59--> 00:16:59

a day.

00:17:01--> 00:17:10

20 pages a day is not a big deal. At the beginning, maybe you will find it difficult but later on it should be easy, if not every two months.

00:17:11--> 00:17:12

Don't read less than that.

00:17:15--> 00:17:25

So that's the way the method of the companions and that's the breakdown of it. Look what they said by the way, this hadith is narrated by Muhammad Abu and imagine

00:17:28--> 00:17:35

how similar they felt when he asked the companions that's the answer he got and this hadith is narrated by Muhammad bin magic.

00:17:36--> 00:17:47

That's the method they used. The first three sutras Of course they did not mention so that the Fatiha comes at the beginning it is with Surah Al Baqarah, Allah amraam and Anissa

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

Sora Baqarah Allah and Ron and aneesa

00:17:54--> 00:18:37

This is the first day you read these three suitors plus sort of the Fatiha. Then the next day you have five students, Alma, ADA, Elena, Allah off lm file and the Toba. You don't have to write every surah if you have the number, you should be able to write it later on 357 11 seven 911 13 and the rest. So you don't have to write all the soldiers just get the number. I don't want you to write down everything to copy everything just mentioned the the headlines only the major points, the key points. Then we have seven sewers. It starts from Soviet units. after October we have solid units and it ends with Surah

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


00:18:41--> 00:18:48

If you notice it's very, very close. It's almost similar. The amount of pages you read every day is almost the same.

00:18:53--> 00:18:59

Then when you have nine sewers, it starts with tsereteli Sarah and it ends with Surah Al Furqan.

00:19:05--> 00:19:12

Then we have 11 sewers. And it starts with Surah ashara. And it ends with surah. Yaseen

00:19:15--> 00:19:17

from ashara to USC

00:19:18--> 00:19:23

then we have from sort of soft fat until tsereteli gerat.

00:19:26--> 00:20:00

The last part or the last division is from Surah Kahf until the rest of the Quran. You notice from Surah Kahf, all the sutras becoming with small, short Ayah from Surah Kahf until the end, the only exception and this division is the 20th 28 years. Judo, judo. Judo cut Samia, so that the Mojo dialer it's the only chapter where the eyes are relatively long, unlike the rest of the Quran or before that the 27th juice but after that they are all

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

The same.

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

So that's the method of the companions, they divided the Quran to seven divisions and all of them are very, very, almost close to each other. First you start with three suitors, then five, then seven, then nine then 11, then 13 and on the last day you finish with from calf until the end of the Quran.

00:20:23--> 00:20:27

Now this is the question, Who put Surah Fatiha at the beginning

00:20:28--> 00:20:33

and next sort of Baccarat and at the end we have saltiness. Why don't we have

00:20:34--> 00:20:39

Surah Baqarah at the end or Surah Fatiha so who put the Quran in this order?

00:20:41--> 00:20:49

Was it the scholars because remember, it's very important to know that at the time of the messenger Salim, did we have the Quran compiled in one single book?

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

No, does that mean the Quran was not preserved?

00:20:56--> 00:21:04

The Quran was preserved and it was written down all the Quran was copied, but it was not copied in one single book.

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

All the Quran was there. So when they gathered the Quran, it was the first time in the time for work or the alarm when they collected these papers, these leaves these rocks that the Quran was written on when they gathered the Quran, the time of a worker and then at the time of first man, did they choose that we will put this surah here we will put this surah there or it was already determined.

00:21:31--> 00:21:33

The term determine what's the evidence?

00:21:35--> 00:21:48

Because some scholars said that's the the order of the companions. And based on that they say you don't have to follow this order. You don't have to follow this order. Was it the messenger Salaam,

00:21:49--> 00:21:52

from Allah or the companions or later on other scholars?

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

What's the evidence?

00:21:58--> 00:22:41

He made them write it down and I agree with you actually, all scholars agree that the eye at the IR themselves the order of the ayat by the messenger Salaam which means you cannot start with the second Ayat of Surah Fatiha, then you go to this first surah first is the same thing with all the sources The is the order of the ayat, its consensus that there is from the prophet SAW Selim from Allah. Because once the prophet SAW Selim calls on one companion, to write down the ayah, he tells him and the others who listen to it in that place, so he he put the order of the if there is no argument about this, what about the sutras? Is the question. Now you said the prophets of Salaam

00:22:41--> 00:22:47

told them to write it down? That's true, I agree with you, but he did not tell them that this surah the place of this surah is here.

00:22:49--> 00:22:50

Do you have any evidence

00:22:53--> 00:23:06

the way he recited them very good, actually, the way he recited them is against this opinion. Because once and this is authentic, the prophets of Salaam started in kiama lane with Al Baqarah. Then an ISA

00:23:08--> 00:23:10

he did not start with Alabama.

00:23:12--> 00:23:15

He went to aneesa directly.

00:23:17--> 00:23:18

So what do you say?

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

Any any thought?

00:23:30--> 00:23:34

Well, you have whenever you believe in something, you have to have the evidence.

00:23:35--> 00:23:57

Yeah, it's true. The prophet SAW Selim himself he's the one who had this order, and the companions of the lion whom they followed that order. What's the evidence? Every the Prophet sighs Salaam. in Ramadan, he used to have gibreel li Salaam coming down to review with him the Quran. Now once he reviewed the Quran,

00:23:58--> 00:24:08

he reviewed the Quran in order there has to be an order. They cannot review the Quran haphazardly. They start from here and they jump there and they go back here, especially the last time

00:24:09--> 00:24:38

the Quran was reviewed by jabril Ali Salaam with the messenger Selim it was reviewed twice. jabril Elisa Lam came in the last Ramadan. When the prophet SAW Selim was alive. And he reviewed it with him twice, who was there as a witness. They didn't Sabbath throughout the law one. So they didn't have it. He is the one who compiled the Quran. He took this mission upon him self over his shoulders. So he witnessed the last revision of the Quran, and it was according to this order.

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

So, the correct opinion is that it was done by the messenger Selim even the order of the soldiers. It was done by the prophet SAW Selim. Okay, now here comes the question. So what do we do about that Hadith when the prophet SAW Selim prayed and he started with Al Baqarah, and he went to an ISA. Now all scholars agreed

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

It is permissible. You don't have to start with one surah. And to go to the next surah, you don't have to do that. You could go to the surah later on, but that's the order of the messenger Salah, the order we have in the Quran, it is by the messenger Salaam. And when we say that Allah subhanaw taala protected the Quran, and he reserved the Quran from any changing, it implies that the order itself is from Allah as well. Not the ayat but also the sutras. So it's more perfect for the preservation to have the order from Allah subhanaw taala not from human beings. So the order of the sutras, it is also from

00:25:43--> 00:25:46

the prophet SAW Selim, which means from Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

Now we move to an important point,

00:25:50--> 00:25:52

the revelation of the Quran,

00:25:54--> 00:25:58

the revelation of the Quran, how long did it take to send down the Quran?

00:26:00--> 00:26:01

Was it sent at once?

00:26:06--> 00:26:07

time by time?

00:26:08--> 00:26:12

For how long? How long did it take to send down the Quran?

00:26:14--> 00:26:32

4023 23 years, right? It was from the first year of the prophethood of Muhammad SAW Selim until the last year there is 23 years. Why wasn't it easier to send the Quran at once?

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

Isn't Allah subhanaw taala able to send it down at once? Even the Torah? How many days did it take to send down the Torah?

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

One time in one hour.

00:26:49--> 00:26:58

40 nights why Allah is able to do anything in a moment of a second, right? In a blink of an eye confession. Why?

00:26:59--> 00:27:02

It's a reminder for us that this is the revelation of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

So take care of it.

00:27:06--> 00:27:07


00:27:08--> 00:27:21

You remember, well, there are many reasons but remember that it is the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala it's not an easy mission. Even the prophet SAW Allah masala salam, he went to a last appointment, so he was there for 40 nights.

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

The prophet SAW Selim, it took him 23 years to receive the entire Quran.

00:27:31--> 00:27:35

Here are the reasons behind sending the Quran down

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

in different

00:27:38--> 00:27:39


00:27:40--> 00:27:43

assuring the heart of the messenger sallallahu wasallam.

00:27:44--> 00:27:59

Giving the prophet SAW Selim the steadfastness on the religion, how prophets I send them during these 23 years, he went through lots of trials and difficulties. And he needed his heart to be assured.

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

If the Quran was sent down at once, then that's it. If he faced one trial, he may be patient, but then the next trial it will weaken. And the third one the fourth one prophet SAW Selim went through endless trials. So how his heart will be assured by the revelation of the Quran. That's what Allah subhanaw taala said wakulla Naka, Sala kameena Rasul man with a bit we further and in every story of the messengers that we relate to you

00:28:29--> 00:28:56

is the reason for you to have your heart short or to steadfast on the religion. So that's one of the reasons one time the prophet SAW Selim is saddened by what people told him. So Allah sends down the revelation that even prophets before you, they were rejected. So the the heart of the messenger Salaam is assured, the revelation is coming to bear that a Salam is coming with the why. So there is a great wisdom behind that this is one of the reasons the second reason

00:28:58--> 00:28:59


00:29:01--> 00:29:02


00:29:03--> 00:29:04

What do we mean by that?

00:29:05--> 00:29:08

Allah subhanho wa Taala sends down an ayah

00:29:10--> 00:29:11

and the kuffaar

00:29:12--> 00:29:23

dispute this ayah. So Allah subhanaw taala challenges them, just like the challenge of bringing the light of the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala sent down

00:29:24--> 00:29:38

the ayah to bring the lack of the Quran and they were unable, Allah told them even if jinn and mankind gathered together to produce the lack of the Quran, they won't be able to do the to do so. Then Allah subhanaw taala sent another ayah

00:29:40--> 00:29:46

if you are you say it's not from Allah bring the light of being 10 sources and they were unable then

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

this is a better to let the people believe that there is from Allah subhanaw taala if it was sent down at once, and they had new claims, then there is nothing to respond to them. But to

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

It was sent down the kuffar are arguing and the Quran comes with the challenging. And that was not only to the kuffar in Mecca, but even to the Jews in Medina,

00:30:10--> 00:30:35

the Jews were disclosed, even the hypocrites. So there is a reason there is wisdom behind that one, they say something. So the Quran comes with the answer. They say something else the Quran comes with the answer and silently. So there is great wisdom if the Quran was sent down at once, and then they had new claims. Where's the answer for that there is no more Quran. So this is the second reason.

00:30:37--> 00:30:45

A third wisdom behind sending down the Quran in different times two is the memorization of the Quran.

00:30:46--> 00:30:57

Now, if I give you one homework, it will be easier for you to do it. The next day, I will give you another homework, and they will do it the next day. But if I give you 10 homeworks at once, you will tell me I cannot do it.

00:30:59--> 00:31:11

And that's why the companions, they were able to memorize the Quran better, because they used to have than I had, then another revelation comes, then another revelation comes. So it was easier for them to memorize the Quran

00:31:13--> 00:31:16

and recite it and reflect on the meanings of the Quran.

00:31:19--> 00:31:28

Also, it is easier to implement the Quran as well. Now, the same thing, if I gave, if I give you 20 partners,

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

you will say okay, I'll do this, I'll do that. But then 20 impossible, I cannot do it, I'm human being while if I give you one order, you will be able to do it, then the next day I give you a second order, you will be able to do it then. And eventually it will be the same. But from the beginning. If I give you lots of things to do, you will not do anything. While if I give you one thing you will do it then next day, then the other thing you will do it

00:31:54--> 00:32:02

so it's easier for the people to implement. This is out of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. He did not ask them to do everything at once.

00:32:06--> 00:32:10

Another reason humoring the incidents and gradual legislation.

00:32:12--> 00:32:20

It's very similar to the first one but the previous one, but we have a difference here like the story of forbidding alcohol.

00:32:22--> 00:32:28

Now, the first command was to avoid drinking alcohol while praying, then

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

reminder that alcohol

00:32:33--> 00:32:46

is a bad thing and then avoided totally I shut down I said if the first idea was to avoid alcohol, totally, people would not have responded to it. But there was gradual legislation.

00:32:47--> 00:33:09

gradual forbids. Also, sometimes the companions had an incident where they needed the answer. So the answer comes from Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran. But if the entire Quran was there, and then they had new incidents, there will not be a revelation, like the story of eyeshadow delana when some people accused her of

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

adultery, Quran came with the revelation to declare her innocence now the other one.

00:33:17--> 00:33:25

So, this is to humor the the incidents and the things that are happening at the time of

00:33:26--> 00:33:29

the messenger sallallahu wasallam during the time of Revelation.

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

Now we have another

00:33:35--> 00:33:47

topic, which is the Mac key and the madonie suris, the meccan and the Medina and suris. What's the definition? Now we already said that we have 82 Mexican soldiers and 20 Medina soldiers. What's the difference?

00:33:49--> 00:33:55

What constitutes mechi surah and mendini surah? What's, what's the difference? I need an answer.

00:34:01--> 00:34:06

Mackie are the ones before Hydra and the madonie are after Hydra. Is this correct?

00:34:07--> 00:34:08

Do you agree?

00:34:09--> 00:34:10


00:34:13--> 00:34:19

It's not the Maquis the suitors that are revealed in Mecca and the madonie the sutras are revealed in Medina.

00:34:25--> 00:34:37

No, so actually the differentiation is correct. That's the correct definition. Because we have some sewers, revealed in a pipe or in the way to taboo, it's not in Mecca or Medina. So what do you say it's make your money.

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

The fine line is the Hydra, whatever reveal before the Hydra is mucky, whether it's in Mecca or outside Mecca, whatever reveal after he draw it's maddening whether it was in Medina or outside Medina, even if it's in Mecca, like the ayah and you might want to let him do this it was revealed in alpha and hotjar Alpha in Mecca.

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

It's on the borders of Mecca. Yet this ayah is Mecca or Medina. Medina because this was after the Hydra

00:35:08--> 00:35:17

so this is incorrect definition when we say Mecca is the meccan surah. The sources that are revealed in Medina and Mecca and Medina are the source that revealed in Medina.

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

Now, since we knew the Mac consoles that the sources were revealed before hijra, what are the characteristics? Which means how can we know that this surah is Mexican? Or this is Mexican? How do we know that? We have a question? Yes. What is it?

00:35:40--> 00:35:48

Now of course it is the history of the messenger seller because he is the one who received the Quran. It's not his companions, the hijra of the messenger seller.

00:35:50--> 00:35:52

So what are the characteristics for the second source?

00:35:54--> 00:35:57

Any question after the go ahead?

00:36:02--> 00:36:10

legislation in Medina says that's true. Mostly the Medina sodas are talking about the legislation. Now we're talking about

00:36:13--> 00:36:43

characteristics, this is one of them legislation. Another one is the jihad. Any if you have the jihad in it is Medina and why? Because you had was not legislated in Mecca. Muslims in Mecca were commanded to show patients they are allowed to they are not allowed to fight back you have to withhold your hand. So this is one side whenever you have an idea with the Jihad you know that it is Medina

00:36:44--> 00:36:46

Yes. What else?

00:36:49--> 00:36:49


00:36:50--> 00:37:15

the hate mostly the hate because in Mecca the Quran was dealing with the pagans so it was talking about the hate now let's focus on the Medina sutras on the first thing we have the Jihad explaining the rulings of Islam again as it was said the legislation like yeah, you handed in to masala tea for sudo do Haku My dear communal Morocco I'm so happy to see Kumar junocam. All these details are

00:37:17--> 00:37:38

Medina and ayat like the ayat about auth and vous few given auth and how to fulfill it to the compensation if you did not fulfill this oath. The details about hunting, if you are in hajj, during Hajj, are you allowed all these ayat? Our Medina, I had

00:37:40--> 00:37:46

exposure of the hypocrites again this is in Medina because in Makkah we did not have hypocrites.

00:37:48--> 00:37:54

We had hypocrites in Medina, so the exposure of the hypocrites any ayah with hypocrites in it, it's the Medina and I

00:37:57--> 00:38:01

and consequently any surah with Medina with hypocrites, it's Medina sores.

00:38:02--> 00:38:11

Usually, the Medina and surah are long sudras with with long ayat like salata, Baqarah Surat Al Baqarah, Mecca or Medina,

00:38:12--> 00:38:25

Medina, you have the longest ayah and the Quran in surah baqarah, one page a whole page. While they're not counselors, usually short tours are for current images, biological, it's short.

00:38:26--> 00:38:35

So these are the characteristics of the Medina sources usually we say usually because sometimes sometimes you have some exceptions.

00:38:37--> 00:38:57

Easy style with details, what do we mean by easy style now the Quran itself is eloquent. All the Quran, the entire Quran is eloquent. However, it's easier. It doesn't have very complicated words, with lots of meanings. Because the purpose in Medina is to lay the foundation of the religion. It's not to challenge people.

00:38:58--> 00:39:05

It's not to argue with the pagans. So the style is easier than the makin service.

00:39:09--> 00:39:11

While in Mecca, we have

00:39:12--> 00:39:14

more complicated Why?

00:39:17--> 00:39:55

Because there is reason to argue with the kuffaar to prove to them that this is the Quran, it is from Allah subhanaw taala. And that's why we start the DFC from the beginning, because some people requested to start from the end of the Quran from Jerusalem. All the all the soldiers, most of the soldiers are Mexican soldiers. So they have very deep meanings. So actually, it's better to start with the beginning. It's easier. Yes, I agree that the last series of the Quran they are short, but they have very deep meanings. Some people they don't know that. Once you know the principles of the seat, once you go through the procedure, then you are able to go there. But from the beginning, I

00:39:55--> 00:39:56

don't recommend that.

00:39:57--> 00:40:00

What's the benefit? Let's say you

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

knew this is a makansutra or you did not know what you will get if you knew that this surah is makansutra

00:40:07--> 00:40:08

or its Medina source.

00:40:09--> 00:40:14

First, it helps you to understand and interpret the Quran correctly

00:40:17--> 00:40:18

because some at

00:40:20--> 00:40:35

what will the mecca like if somebody fought you? You show patience, while in Medina, they were commanded to fight back. So, you know why this ayah is talking about the same thing with a different action

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

because it was revealed in Mecca.

00:40:39--> 00:40:43

It helps you to know the Sierra of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:40:45--> 00:40:47

You see the sequence of the incidents?

00:40:49--> 00:41:06

It helps you know, the Sierra of the prophet SAW Salem this happened in Mecca, because this is the I it is mechanized. So, you know this happened in Mecca. This is Medina and I you know this happened to the prophet SAW Selim in Medina. That's why one of the sources of the Sierra is the Quran. The Quran is a source for the Syrah.

00:41:08--> 00:41:23

Also you taste the different styles of the Quran. Once you know that this is a Medina an ayah or surah. You notice the style is easy. It's eloquent but unlike the meccan surah where it's more complicated with the Rhine sometimes.

00:41:25--> 00:41:29

So these are benefits for knowing the Mecca and Medina

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


00:41:35--> 00:41:52

This is what scheffel Islam Rahim Allah says it's very nice statement from sheffler sam Tamia Rahim Allah He said, Whoever lived in the land is weak in it or in time of weakness, then, let him implement the art of patience and forgiveness.

00:41:53--> 00:42:16

But the strong people should apply the Art of Fighting the disbelievers. So again, you could implement the art of the meccan era, if you are in a time of weakness. But if you are in a time of strength, then you have to apply the Medina This is what scheffel Islam Tamia Pamela said in a sermon Miss Lola Fatima Rasul volume one page 224.

00:42:18--> 00:42:21

So again, it helps you implement the Quran correctly.

00:42:23--> 00:42:33

Just an example here in America, we live in Western society. It's not appropriate to come to the to the non Muslims and you tell them you're the Godfather and we have to fight you and you have to kill him.

00:42:35--> 00:43:01

I'm not saying this is not from the religion but you have to understand them correctly. What to implement the whys. Why Muslims in Mecca were commanded to show patience because they are weak. If you are weak and you want to fight back, you will be erased you will be destroyed. So this is a great statement by Schaffer Islam Rahim Allah and with this we will conclude our session for today. Now that will allow Solomon and Muhammad a savage man Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
