smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah Samana, Salam O Allah, welcome to the class of honorable Quran, the sciences of the Quran. Today inshallah we will discuss the Tafseer of the Quran, we will start with the Tafseer of the Quran. And

00:00:27--> 00:00:36

we want to start with the meaning of the Deaf seed. Since it's the major science of Illumina Quran, we need to know what's the meaning of Deaf seed.

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

There are books of the year. So what do we mean by tafsir?

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

In Arabic

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

fsid means

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


00:00:50--> 00:00:53

Explain it explaining. It has two meanings.

00:00:54--> 00:00:59

To explain, and to unveil. It's derived from the word feser.

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


00:01:03--> 00:01:07

so let's now try to get the

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

religious meaning of the tafsir.

00:01:13--> 00:01:20

What do we how can we define tafsir? scholars in Arabic, they define the Tafseer with three words on that's the definition of diversity.

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

They said they on manual Quran

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

three words.

00:01:30--> 00:01:33

That's the deficit. So what's the deficit?

00:01:34--> 00:01:38

If someone asked you, what are you studying? And you said, I'm studying tafsir? What do you mean?

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

What's the deficit?

00:01:44--> 00:01:51

explanation of the meanings of the Quran? Exactly. Or unveiling the meanings of the Quran? That's three words,

00:01:52--> 00:02:01

by an man in Quran that's the definition of Tafseer. Explain explaining the meanings of the Quran.

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

Because that's actually the purpose. That's why we study tafsir.

00:02:07--> 00:02:20

Now, we will discuss the differences amongst scholars why they differ in deficit? Some people ask this question, you have one book, which is the Quran. So why they differ in deficit?

00:02:21--> 00:02:29

First of all, you need to remember that the differences among the scholars, it's not differences of contradiction.

00:02:30--> 00:02:53

Which means they did not say about one thing, it is halal. And other scholars said about the same thing it is haram, or one scholar said it is four. And another scholar said it's true. We don't have this kind of contradiction. It's very, very rare. But rather what we have in tafsir is the fear of variation.

00:02:54--> 00:02:57

So it's not contradiction. It is variation.

00:02:58--> 00:03:06

They explain something with one word, others come and explain the same thing with different words. And they mean the same thing.

00:03:08--> 00:03:18

And that's what most scholars said, and that's what we have in the book, most of the differences and the Tafseer it's different, they are differences of variations, not contradiction.

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

So, this is the first thing, which is very important.

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

But now,

00:03:27--> 00:03:33

we will move to one of the reasons of the differences amongst the scholars of tafsir.

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

And this is mentioned in this book,

00:03:38--> 00:03:39

page 56

00:03:40--> 00:03:47

the introduction to the Tafseer and whoever does not have it, it is mentioned in this book, page 31

00:03:50--> 00:03:58

this book the Arabic affair 31 and this book, page 56. But we will not read now just follow with me please.

00:04:01--> 00:04:06

The prophets lie Selim. His job was to explain the meanings of the Quran.

00:04:07--> 00:04:21

And we mentioned that if you wanted to interpret the Quran, you refer first to the Quran itself, then to the Sunnah of the messenger cisilion, then to the companions, who took the Tafseer from the Quran upon the Battle of Yarmouk,

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

which happened in the year 12 of hijra

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

or 14 after this battle.

00:04:31--> 00:04:37

The Companions found some narrations from the people of book from the children of Israel.

00:04:39--> 00:04:44

And because of that, some companions like urban cap

00:04:46--> 00:04:54

of the Abdullah number of Nassau Dylon Houma, or even an Ibis they inherited from these narrations

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

and that caused some differences in deficit

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


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

What's the correct stance? as a Muslim? what you're supposed to do a few here and eration from the people of book. And nowadays people talk a lot about something in our life that happened now, the day Sally, Sally and Mary,

00:05:15--> 00:05:33

did he have children? What do you say? If someone came and said the Bible or or the Old Testament, the New Testament, they say that he had a child, he was married. What do we do? We have the answer. We have the answer from the messenger sallallahu wasallam.

00:05:34--> 00:05:52

Here is the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, where he says, Bella who annually transmit to others, what you hear from me, even if it was one as well, hardly through and many Islam, Allah, Allah, Allah, and there is no harm in quoting from the children of Israel.

00:05:54--> 00:05:58

That's what the prophet SAW Selim said. What do you understand from this?

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

What do you understand from this hadith? There is no harm in quoting from the children of Israel.

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

What does that tell you?

00:06:11--> 00:06:15

You're allowed to quote from them. So if you found in their book that

00:06:16--> 00:06:18

I Sally Sarah was married?

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

Is it okay to say he was married?

00:06:25--> 00:06:26

Yes or no?

00:06:27--> 00:06:34

Yes. You found in their book, you found in their book, that a salad salad was God?

00:06:36--> 00:06:39

Know what you just said this. And now you're saying no.

00:06:40--> 00:06:43

What about the Hadith it says, quote from them, there is no harm.

00:06:46--> 00:06:51

This Hadith is not general without exceptions. There are exceptions. Yes.

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

You can quote from them as long as it does not contradict, but here in the Hadith, it doesn't say that.

00:07:02--> 00:07:10

It says there is no harm. There is another Hadith actually, now this Hadith, it's in Al Bukhari, Sahih al Bukhari. This Hadith is very famous.

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

But we have another Hadith

00:07:14--> 00:07:18

where the prophet SAW Selim said, do not believe or disbelieve them,

00:07:19--> 00:07:37

not to serve the CO Al Kitab Bala to caribou. Why? Because maybe what they are telling you is the truth, and you don't know. So if you don't believe them, what will happen? you rejected the truth. And maybe what they are saying is, is a lie.

00:07:38--> 00:07:46

And you said, I believe them, then you are believing a lie. That's why you don't believe and you don't disbelief.

00:07:48--> 00:08:08

So we have to ahadith all the traditions of many Israel, it should be understood in context of those two a hadith. Therefore, scholars divided the narrations of Benny's right to three categories. So whenever someone tells you, do we accept the narrations of the children of Israel, they will reject them.

00:08:10--> 00:08:14

You cannot say yes or no, you have to mention the detailed answer,

00:08:15--> 00:08:21

which includes three categories. You say there are three categories. The first one

00:08:23--> 00:08:26

we can regard as true. So we believe in it.

00:08:29--> 00:08:33

The second one, the second category, with disbelief,

00:08:34--> 00:08:37

we can regard as false we say that's a lie.

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

That's rejected.

00:08:41--> 00:08:45

The third one, we shall neither believe nor disbelief.

00:08:48--> 00:09:06

So, the traditions, the Israeli traditions, they are of three types. One type, we can we believe in it, we take another type, we reject it, we disbelieve in it, third type, we just leave it we cannot accept it nor can we reject it.

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

So, we have three types.

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

The first type,

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

which we can accept, why do we accept it?

00:09:18--> 00:09:20

Not because it is

00:09:21--> 00:09:27

from the people of book, but because we have something in our religion

00:09:29--> 00:09:40

that supports what they are saying or what they are saying supports what we have. So we accept it as a supporting evidence by itself not as a separate evidence.

00:09:42--> 00:09:49

So the first category, the narrations that we accept from them, those narrations

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

we have the truth

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

and they are in on the same page. An example for this that

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

Allah subhanaw taala created Adam alayhis salam, the story of the creation of Adam, very similar. So if they came and they said, Allah subhanaw taala created Adam with his hand, this is an oration. Do we accept it? Yes. Why do we accept it? Because it's narration from the children of Israel? No, because we have it in our book.

00:10:21--> 00:10:23

So it supports that we have

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

a narration came

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

saying that no Halle salon drank alcohol,

00:10:32--> 00:10:35

and consequently he fornicated with a woman.

00:10:36--> 00:10:43

Do you accept this? Of course, no. Why it contradicts our religion, our belief in the prophets and messengers.

00:10:45--> 00:10:49

And eration came with something that we don't have in our religion,

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

the accepted or you rejected?

00:10:54--> 00:10:59

You say Allah, Allah, Allah knows best, we do not accept it, nor do we reject it.

00:11:01--> 00:11:17

So whatever came in our religion, and we find it the same thing in their book, we accept it. Because it supports what we have. It could be as a supporting evidence to what we have, whatever came contradicting what we have in our religion, we rejected

00:11:19--> 00:11:45

whatever came that we don't have any information about it. We stop. We say that's what we don't know. We cannot say yes, it's true, because maybe it's a lie. And there is no way there is no way to be able definitively to know whether it's true or false. There is no way How can you verify their narrations they did not have that's why Islam is unique. We have in our religion we have

00:11:47--> 00:12:03

the the science of aluminum bodies, this terminology, where we study, we analyze the narrations. We have the main narrators whether we credit or discredit them, but about the their narrations we cannot say it's true or false.

00:12:05--> 00:12:13

The nature of these narrations, the new generations of the people have book mostly, it deals with

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

some details

00:12:17--> 00:12:25

about stories that maybe we have in our book in the Quran, like the story of the cow, which will come with us in sha Allah.

00:12:26--> 00:12:32

Later on, in this semester. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in this story, that

00:12:34--> 00:12:41

they were instructed the children of Israel, they were instructed to strike the dead man with part of the cow.

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

Which part of the

00:12:44--> 00:12:51

class they don't mention in the Quran. Why? Because it doesn't tell you to know there is no great benefit

00:12:53--> 00:13:09

in knowing the part of the cow. That's the nature of the Quran. It focuses only on the lessons, it mentions only the things that will help you doesn't go to the details that will not help you. So if a narration came from the Jennifer server, and it says

00:13:10--> 00:13:21

he was struck, that that man he was they struck him by the tail, or with the like, are with the head of the cow.

00:13:22--> 00:13:28

We don't know. We don't know. Or the type of the tree that Adam alayhis salam ate from

00:13:29--> 00:13:41

Allah asked Adam not to eat from that tree in Paradise, and he ate. What was that tree? We don't know. Alas, Hunter did not mention that. Maybe in the

00:13:42--> 00:13:46

books of the children of Israel, you will find that they are telling you it's the apple tree.

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

We don't know whether it's apple tree grape.

00:13:51--> 00:14:18

Anything we don't know. Allah mentioned the story and mentioned the things that we will learn from Adam alayhis salam was commanded not to eat and he ate it please seduced Adam and his wife. And they disobeyed the last partner, they sought forgiveness. They also heard the forgiveness and they were forgiven. That's what you need to know. Other than that, you don't need to know. So some people came and they tried searching what's the

00:14:19--> 00:14:29

part of the cow that this man was struck by? Some people came and said the color of the rod of masala Salah what was the color of the

00:14:30--> 00:14:40

it was a stick? We don't know, what was the color of it? Would that change the the story if it was black or red or white? It doesn't tell you.

00:14:41--> 00:14:48

So, these are some differences caused by the Israeli traditions.

00:14:49--> 00:15:00

Now, we will move to the differences the other differences amongst the scholars, what are these reasons for their differences and

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

Remember again the differences are differences of variation, not differences of contradiction.

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

We have number one differences in expression,

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

they express something

00:15:16--> 00:15:23

by specific words others express the same thing with other words. So, this is the first type

00:15:24--> 00:15:28

differences in expression, then we have differences in illustration.

00:15:31--> 00:15:33

This is another reason,

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

when we have

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

differences due to ambiguity

00:15:42--> 00:15:49

the word can refer to several meanings. So, it's ambiguous, you don't know which meaning you choose

00:15:51--> 00:15:56

and differences in choice of words, they choose this word or that word.

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

These are some reasons, these are not the all the reasons, we will continue inshallah after we finish this with the book to go through all the reasons. So, these are few differences and we will discuss them one by one, the first one differences in expression

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

differences in expression

00:16:23--> 00:16:33

how this happens, expressing one idea with different words. That's how it happens. It's the same idea, but you express it in different towards

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

one of them one of the scholars he may bring

00:16:39--> 00:16:43

or he may mention one aspect of the idea and another scholar

00:16:45--> 00:17:01

he may bring another aspect of the same idea to different aspects for the same idea, does that change the idea itself? It does not because they are talking about the same idea about with different aspects.

00:17:04--> 00:17:07

To give you a clearer example, from the book of Allah subhanaw taala.

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

Allah says in the Quran, Allah De La Hoya with

00:17:16--> 00:17:18

a methadone fella Hola, smile.

00:17:19--> 00:17:28

Call him Allah, or call him Irishman. Now if someone said I'm calling on Allah, and another one said, I'm calling on a rush, man.

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

Are they calling on two different gods or it's the same God Allah subhanaw taala

00:17:37--> 00:17:40

it's the same guy, but we have two different names now.

00:17:41--> 00:17:43

Man and Allah.

00:17:44--> 00:17:49

So it is the same. Now in reality, is this a true difference?

00:17:51--> 00:17:54

It's not a true difference. Yes, you may say Allah is different than

00:17:56--> 00:18:05

the word the diff is different. But it's talking about one God about the last panel. So you cannot really consider this as the difference.

00:18:07--> 00:18:10

It's only difference in expression.

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

This example clear.

00:18:20--> 00:18:21


00:18:22--> 00:18:27

Now this is the first reason. The second reason differences in illustration

00:18:30--> 00:18:33

differences in illustration, what do we mean by that?

00:18:35--> 00:18:40

A scholar explains a general term while mentioning one of its kind

00:18:41--> 00:18:42

in a way of illustration.

00:18:45--> 00:18:59

Another scholar comes with a different way. But again, they are talking about the same thing. Now they don't mention different aspects of the idea or different tour. It's a different way. But it's the same thing.

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


00:19:03--> 00:19:05

how someone came and asked

00:19:06--> 00:19:10

about the meaning of bread. What is bread?

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

or soda?

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

Someone asked what solder and you showed him the sprite? Can

00:19:20--> 00:19:35

you told him this is solder? What did you mean by that? This is an example. Another one came with Coke or Pepsi. And he said this is soda. You cannot say they are two different things because all these

00:19:36--> 00:19:38

beverages they are soda

00:19:40--> 00:19:47

root three, Sprite, coke. Seven or Pepsi. All of them are talking about the same thing.

00:19:51--> 00:19:55

Now what happened here, it's different than the previous one. You chose.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

Part of the thing itself.

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

To illustrate it, to show it

00:20:04--> 00:20:09

the same thing with coffee. Someone asked what's the American coffee

00:20:11--> 00:20:18

and you brought to him decaf, cappuccino or whatever any type of these coffees

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

just to remind them that this is like the like of this is the coffee.

00:20:26--> 00:20:29

That's what we mean by difference in illustration.

00:20:32--> 00:20:45

look at an example look at the example of the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala says from Athena and Kitab, Allah Dena Stephane amin, Abaddon, from in home volume only nuptse. Amin home oxygen,

00:20:46--> 00:20:48

amin home sobre, combi, harati, Bismillah

00:20:52--> 00:20:53

Delica, who will follow,

00:20:58--> 00:21:02

hear Allah subhanaw taala listed three types of people

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

read the I read the translation,

00:21:07--> 00:21:12

a lot, gave the book to the chosen ones, as if they inherited

00:21:15--> 00:21:19

of those people of the of the Muslim nation, there are those who

00:21:20--> 00:21:30

who are violent and who are doing injustice to themselves. And there are those who are just fair, and there are those who are good doors.

00:21:32--> 00:21:53

So now we have what three levels three groups. If someone came and asked Who are these three groups Allah did not mention names, you are from this group, not from this group Mohammed from this group, Allah did not say that Allah mentioned the group's. So if an interpreter came, if a scholar came and he wanted to

00:21:55--> 00:21:59

explain who are these three groups, what are they?

00:22:01--> 00:22:13

One scholar will come and say, the first group, the wrong door, the volume enough see here is the one who prays after the time is over.

00:22:15--> 00:22:21

He's supposed to pray Maghrib before I show, but he prays after we are done of the Asia

00:22:22--> 00:22:29

while the doctor said the one who is average. He praised my rip before Alicia, but late

00:22:31--> 00:22:36

and the subject will hire out the good door is the one

00:22:37--> 00:22:39

who preys on time with the jamara.

00:22:41--> 00:22:51

So you see now what happened, he came and he gave examples for the meaning. Another scholar came and said, the meaning of

00:22:53--> 00:23:14

volume enough, say McPherson sabich will hierarchy is this. The first one volume in NFC is the one who deals with interest. He charged he charged interest, because this is the this is forbidden, the one whose average, Mokhtar said is the one who trades

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

he buys and sells it is permissible.

00:23:18--> 00:23:22

And the one who's Sabbath will higher art is good door

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

is the one who gives in charity.

00:23:27--> 00:23:29

He's the one who gives in charity.

00:23:32--> 00:23:43

Try to compare between the two examples. Now both scholars, they gave very similar examples. But they differ in illustrating the meaning.

00:23:47--> 00:23:54

That's what we mean by differences in illustration. So this is the second type.

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

The third type

00:24:01--> 00:24:05

is the difference in or due to ambiguity.

00:24:07--> 00:24:10

And this happens when the word has several meanings.

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

The word has several meanings.

00:24:18--> 00:24:27

Whether because if the not two different species of a genus, and you choose one of them, or

00:24:28--> 00:24:31

because the word is equivocal.

00:24:33--> 00:24:37

What's the example for this? We have many examples in the Quran.

00:24:39--> 00:24:40

well lately either us, us.

00:24:42--> 00:24:46

us us in Arabic, it has two opposite meanings

00:24:48--> 00:24:50

began and ended

00:24:51--> 00:25:00

when the night begins or when the night ends. Now again, it's the same word, but the meaning will vary.

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

According to the meaning you choose because it has two meanings.

00:25:05--> 00:25:11

Another example while mapa la cartuja Tara bosma bM fusina de la Santa Kuru.

00:25:12--> 00:25:18

This is in Surah Al Baqarah. Allah instructed the divorced woman to wait for free.

00:25:19--> 00:25:29

But what's the or, or in Arabic again means two different meanings. It means the periods

00:25:31--> 00:25:36

during the menses, and it means the purification between

00:25:37--> 00:25:38

the two menses

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

in between the period

00:25:43--> 00:25:54

it has two different meanings. So which one you choose? And according to the word that you chose, the meaning will be different. What's the reason for that difference?

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

The ambiguity of the word.

00:25:58--> 00:26:02

Another example, while federal while a national

00:26:03--> 00:26:06

was cephei. Well, what were lately it is

00:26:09--> 00:26:12

well fed Malayali national, what are the 10 nights?

00:26:14--> 00:26:16

Some scholars said it is the nights of

00:26:17--> 00:26:24

Ramadan, the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Other scholars said it is the 10 Knights of

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

the ledger,

00:26:27--> 00:26:31

the Knights of the eighth the Knights of the hedge in the ledger

00:26:33--> 00:26:36

because it's possible that this is the meaning and this is the meaning

00:26:38--> 00:26:42

the word is ambiguous it could accept them both.

00:26:44--> 00:26:47

Now we move to the third or to the fourth type

00:26:49--> 00:26:53

of differences amongst the scholars choice of words

00:26:54--> 00:26:56

according to the word they choose,

00:26:58--> 00:26:59

the meaning will be different.

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

And now inshallah It is time for reading now you have lots of reading to do actually in this book.

00:27:08--> 00:27:09

And in this book,

00:27:10--> 00:27:14

in this book book of McAfee Rahim Allah we start from page 29.

00:27:17--> 00:27:29

I asked you already to read from one to 50 did you do that? Okay. So, you should know what I talked about. Few things are not covered here. We will discuss them in this book.

00:27:30--> 00:27:32

So please open the book

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

on page 16.

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

PAGE 16.

00:27:41--> 00:27:42

Chapter two

00:27:43--> 00:27:49

differences in tafsir between the self and we will start with differences in expression.

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

Go ahead.

00:28:02--> 00:28:39

Differences in expression, we have the first type one the Express one and the same idea with different words such that one of them brings out one aspect of the idea. And the other the other aspect, even though both refer to the same thing. These explanations are like alternative names which lie between synonyms and antonyms. Examples are the various names for the words such as other serene, the sharp and Elmo. Elmo handed over one. Yeah. Another example for the first reason for differences

00:28:40--> 00:28:42

when the word has several meanings,

00:28:45--> 00:28:54

the sword in Arabic the sword means it you could say ultra Sam or al Mohammed or a sarin

00:28:55--> 00:28:59

now they are all talking about the same thing, which is the the sword.

00:29:02--> 00:29:12

So if you say it's Sam, it's one that does not mean you're talking about something other than the sword it is the sword, but it's given another name.

00:29:13--> 00:29:59

Okay, go ahead. And I'll mahana the one made of the best deal of India or the various names of Allah, the prophet SAW in the film and the Quran, all divided, all Divine Names refer to one and the same being that is why to call him by one name is not against calling him by another name. This truth has been mentioned by Allah Himself, call him a lot or call him a human by whatever name you call him. It is well for to Him belong all Beautiful Names. Okay. I hope this is clear. Now, there are few pages to further clarify the meaning of this reason of differences amongst the scholars.

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

So we'll move now to the second reason, at page 20. PAGE 20 differences in illustration,

00:30:10--> 00:30:48

differences in illustration, we have the second type of variation when the salaf, while explaining the general term, mentioned one or the other of its kind by way of illustration, and draw the attention of their listeners to its species, instead of offering a definition in terms of its genus and differential, if a non Arab were to ask them what his hopes, bread, they might show a Ratliff, a flat little leaf, yes, rat leaf, a flat loaf of bread and say, This is it. Obviously what they meant is the thing of that kind, rather than a loaf of bread.

00:30:49--> 00:31:22

An example of this type of difference in the sphere is what has been said about the worst. Then we gave the book for inheritance to such of our servants as we chose, but there are among them those who wronged themselves of violin, leanness sihi and those who are who are average in doing their duties and moccasins and some are by Allah leave the formulas l sadock. Okay, good deed. We mentioned this example move to the second page. Next Page statements regarding

00:31:24--> 00:32:04

Yes, statements regarding relevant Tory background to this category. The statements regarding the relevant story background of the Quranic verses also belong particularly the ones which say that a certain worse was revealed in the case of this or that person, as we find in the discussion on the cases of Revelation. As bad as usual, in various commentaries. It has been said for instance, that the worst of the hair came down in the case of the wife of gadot in case it had been Seamus, the worst of Leon was revealed in the case of Wei, Wei min

00:32:05--> 00:32:24

Danny or halal been Omega, the worst of heilala came down in the case of Jabir ibn Abdullah or the Allahu Allahu rhodiola. On Houma, the worst judge in their dispute according to what Allah has revealed, came down in the case of Benny

00:32:25--> 00:32:40

Araiza and Benny unideal. The worst whoever turns his back that day was revealed at the time of Bella, the worst witness on your transit the witness on your transactions, when debt approaches

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


00:32:43--> 00:32:46

you was revealed in the case of me,

00:32:47--> 00:33:23

okay, this is another remember what we mentioned about the benefit the advantage of learning the reasons of Revelation, you need to relate to this also to this section. Okay, page 23. The third reason differences due to ambiguity, differences duty ambiguity. Another difference which we find in there the fear concerned which concerns words which can mean two different things, either because the words are equivocal, such as qaswarah or suara in Arabic and on camera Mustang Farah, Farah temuka suara. This is in Surah.

00:33:25--> 00:33:27

Which surah so

00:33:28--> 00:33:29

what's the meaning of cassava?

00:33:31--> 00:33:34

cassava means could mean lion

00:33:35--> 00:33:38

or could means the the the archer.

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

So, lion

00:33:43--> 00:33:47

is an animal but Archer is a human being, but the meaning

00:33:48--> 00:33:56

it gives you the same meaning because the animal would flee from the lion as well as it will flee from the hunter.

00:33:57--> 00:33:59

So which one you choose?

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

The meaning will be different according to Okay, such as qaswarah, which means that Archer as well as a lion, or ssF, which means both the Advent and the departure of Knight or because they denote two different species of the genus or two different members of a class. Well, only one is in fact intended. An instance is that concealed from pronto me, pronoun mini subject in this course. Then he approached and came near, and it was at a distance of but to bolens of even near Madonna fidella sakana Baba Cassini, Edina

00:34:43--> 00:34:51

words like wild fetch well lately in LA LA Nash, la, la la la la when I yell in ash

00:34:53--> 00:34:54

when I

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

say it just says it really well.

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


00:35:01--> 00:35:05

okay repeat after okay sorry, wait

00:35:07--> 00:35:09

a while what was chef evil was

00:35:10--> 00:35:57

in such cases it is sometimes possible that all this lF has said that the seer of a worse is true, but another time it may not be true. The first is the case if the worst has been revealed twice, once meaning one thing and the other time meaning another, or if the word is equivocal, and possibly means both things. This has been upheld by most of the scholars of the Maliki Shafi and henneberry schools as well as many theologians. In other case, in the other case, namely the case of the word which may refer to two quite different things in the same class, the word would be taken in its general connotation, if there is nothing to specify, okay. move now to the last one, differences in

00:35:57--> 00:36:42

choice of words, differences in choice of words, in order to express an idea the seller has often used words which are very close in their connotation, but which are not sin synonymous. This has unfortunately been considered as a difference of opinion, it has not been realized that there are very few words in the language which are synonymous, synonymous in the end, they are rare, almost non existent, it is very difficult to find a word which can raise all the meanings which are conveyed by another word, at best it will be an approximation, this is one of the reasons why the N is in mytable. In in the worst on the day when the this is important, this statement, you may be

00:36:42--> 00:36:48

asked why the Quran is inimitable, you cannot imitate the Quran Why?

00:36:49--> 00:36:51

So you need to know Okay,

00:36:52--> 00:37:33

the day when the firmament will be in Swift commotion, mount. For example, if you explain the word mount by hierarchy, movement, this would be an approximation, yo Matamoros, Mo Mo da, that's the word that he's talking about Mt. Four mt means a light and swift movement. Similarly, if you say what he revelation is a lamb communication or paraphrase Oh haev l hanaa. Review revealed as Ansel now we sent it down or say that, but yeah, exactly. I'll give you an example. Now. Why? What's the meaning of fire?

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

Revelation, what about inspiration?

00:37:38--> 00:37:40

What about sending down

00:37:41--> 00:37:42

Can you say one of them wrong?

00:37:45--> 00:37:48

No. So this is another example. Okay.

00:37:51--> 00:38:05

Or say that Dana to the children of Israel means lampman lamina informed then informed them all these will only be approximations, rather than

00:38:07--> 00:38:32

giving the real meanings for what he means swift and secret communication. While cada la casa de la him is a special form of inspiration, information implying the sense of is enough said sending down as well as it had revealing Okay. Now, these are how many reasons for differences of the

00:38:33--> 00:38:42

four. But remember, all these differences are amongst the scholars of the seller themselves. Now there is another reason

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


00:38:45--> 00:38:52

another difference for another reason, it's on page 228 differences because of the Hadith,

00:38:53--> 00:38:54

because of the Hadith.

00:38:56--> 00:39:02

Some people now we said if you did not interpret the Quran by the Quran, where do you move

00:39:03--> 00:39:08

to the Hadith, but what if you based your Tafseer on a weak Hadith, what will happen?

00:39:10--> 00:39:13

So that's another reason of differences.

00:39:14--> 00:39:59

They had a narration go ahead read please. Number 28 differences in the seer based on how they eat the differences in the Sierra RF two kinds, those are those which are entirely based on the Sunnah. And those which are known by other means, for knowledge lies either in authentic hadith or valid deduction, and the Hadith either order originates from an infallible authority or a fallible one of the Hadith, whether they originate from an infallible authority or a fallible one, these are about though these are those about which it is possible to ascertain if they are true. So hey, are we dive and if there are others about which we cannot ascertain

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

This much

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

of the ladder kind of a Heidi whose authenticity cannot be ascertained, the majority are of no use and need not to be discussed here. But those whose authenticity the oma must know and carry with them, signs by which we can ascertain their truth, examples of the first kind of a headache which are useless, and of which there is no way to know the truth or many, for instance, that are hiding containing the color of the dog that the people of the cave had. Exactly. Now, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the people of the cave, and he mentioned that they had a dog, did he mention what's the color of that dog?

00:40:42--> 00:40:56

Is it worth it to search and discuss what was the color of their dog it will not help you, if it will help you alas pantalla would have mentioned it in the Quran. So there is no use of spending time and such thing.

00:40:57--> 00:40:58


00:40:59--> 00:41:19

The part of the cow with which Musa alayhis salam hit the dead, the size of the ark of Noah alayhis salam and the kind of wood it was made of, and the name of the boy whom Claire killed, etc. Okay, move to the second page 29 last line, the point I am trying to make, that's what I

00:41:20--> 00:41:27

want you to listen to. The point I am trying to make is that to find out the truth of divergent ahaadeeth

00:41:30--> 00:41:42

where there is no way to ascertain the truth and where the citation of different opinions does not a will, is like finding out the truth about a heartbeat, which does not have anything to prove its authenticity.

00:41:44--> 00:42:30

The other Hadith about which we can ascertain whether they are true or false concern things think a lot that matter in life. These are, for instance, a hadith in the books of the seer, Hadith and military expeditions. Mel hezi, about our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and other prophets, la Muslim, which are false because they are contradicted by authentic ahaadeeth. This is however, not something peculiar with a heartbeat, we also come across it in matters that are known through other means. What I want to say, however, is that a heartbeat which are important for religion have some properties by which we can differentiate the true from the false among them. We know that a hadith

00:42:30--> 00:43:19

regarding the seer are no better than a hadith regarding wars and expeditions. This is why a man had said a hadith regarding three things this year military expeditions now has he and wars Mullah him have no chain of narration is net. The other version of mmm Hamad saying is that they have no basis as that that is to say that they have no chain of narration for Moses, if you say there is no chain of narration, so you will not verify it, whether you reject it because you don't know whether it's true or not. Or you will accept the Hadith without knowing or without verifying them. And that will lead this is another cause why scholars differ in the Hadith. Now, again, there are lots of things

00:43:19--> 00:43:20

to read.

00:43:23--> 00:43:38

But all what we mentioned so far, is differences of the Tafseer amongst the self, which means which we mean amongst the scholars of philosophical Gemma. There is another reason for the differences in diversity. But it's not a valid reason.

00:43:39--> 00:43:52

We're not saying it's correct, but it's happening. The Tafseer based on the bias, or the deviant sects of Islam, just like the Shia, who tried to twist the meanings of the ayat.

00:43:53--> 00:44:25

When they say yeah, you have never you been the amount zero like Arabic, deliver what was sent down from Allah to you, they say what was sent down from Allah to you in regards to Allah, that is the Khalifa. Or about the story of the cow. Indeed, Allah commands you to, to slaughter a cow, they said, it means I should have the lawn. Now there is no basis for this seed, but because they are deviant, they follow their own desires. So they wanted

00:44:26--> 00:44:30

to have the tafsir to move the tafsir according to

00:44:31--> 00:44:38

their opinions. And this is in page 42. Can you please move to page 42? We want to finish this,

00:44:39--> 00:44:52

this issue about the differences in the Tafseer and your job is to read you have lots of reading actual the the reasons for differences in tafsir. That's what you need. Only if you answer this question. That's it.

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

Differences interfere as a result of Secretary and bias. The second cause

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

The difference in the sear concerns reasoning, rather than how did the errors that have crept into this year through this channel have mostly been the result of two things which appeal things, you need to know them, okay, which appeared after the activity of this year by the companions, the successors and their followers had come to an end. They are not to be found in the commentaries that are based on the comments of these three generations. So this is a question here, why don't we have these differences and the old deficit the first set of the companions, because of their time, they were united, they did not have these whims and desires

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

to form new meanings that have no basis, but it happened later on.

00:45:46--> 00:46:01

Okay, they are not, they are not to be found in the commentaries that are based on the comments of these three generations, such as the commentaries are off. Al rezac. workI ebin, homemade.

00:46:03--> 00:46:31

These are the names he listed the names of the pious predecessors of the scholars who gave the Tafseer. And most of them are similar. They did not have differences. Next page is the first thing which happened was that a p? Well, the first thing that happened was that a people first formed some ideas and then interpreted Docker and in light of those ideas, okay, this is the first thing which is very important. You need to understand how this all happened.

00:46:32--> 00:47:03

I form an opinion, I saw people that are following an agenda. And if I follow them, I will not be famous. I like people to know me. I like fame. So I formed a different opinion. And usually people follow the strange things. Now people want to come to me, but my opinion has no basis. How can I convince them that it is true? What I'm saying is true. what others are saying is wrong. I already found the opinion, but it has no basis. I come to the IRS, and I try to

00:47:04--> 00:47:18

twist the IRS to support my opinion. So that's what happened. While we as Muslims, we first believe, and according to what the ayah says, we form our opinions. So this is the first thing.

00:47:20--> 00:47:43

The second thing which happened was that some people began to explain Quranic passages, just as any Arabic speaking person would understand them, without considering who their author was, or to whom they were revealed, and to whom they were addressed. Very important point as well. Because you may be asked this question, can you interpret the Quran linguistically only

00:47:44--> 00:47:47

by the language? Can you or can't you?

00:47:49--> 00:48:13

Why it's in Arabic, and people understand Arabic. If Allah sent the Quran in Chinese people will not understand. But he understood the he sent the book in order to be understood. Yet, it's true you cannot. Because it's not like any other book. It's not a regular book. It's the book of Allah subhanaw taala. So do not forget that it was revealed by Allah.

00:48:14--> 00:48:17

Allah sent down this book, it's the word of Allah.

00:48:19--> 00:48:24

You cannot ignore the incidents that took place the context of the ayah

00:48:26--> 00:48:37

so this is the other reason that when people try to ignore the ahaadeeth try to ignore the Syrah try to ignore the source of the Quran and they started interpreting the Quran. According to

00:48:39--> 00:48:43

the Arabic language only, yes, the Arabic language could be supporting

00:48:44--> 00:48:59

way to interpret the Quran but it cannot be a sole method to to interpret the Quran. I think this is enough inshallah. With this we will conclude our session. Hello Salalah Solomon and Mohammed value Samia Jemaine Santa Monica.
