Those of you who were here last time and you remember anything from,
And basically this is the point of the entire lecture let them was this
turning to the Quran trying to understand the meaning of the Quran, or in other words, the science of the fear
and it is not something that is just open to anyone's feelings or anyone's interpretation, but there is any basic methodology,
that we must follow and the Quran has not been
around has not been open to anyone to just approach to the Quran and interpret the Quran
in any way that he wishes. In fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala and Quran there's the money not enough in
this verse of the Quran and it shed some light
on the fact that any of the Quran
itself and it wasn't loved by Allah subhana wa tada without it actually being explained.
Well the purpose of today's lecture and perhaps the next lecture
and what are the what are the sources that we may turn to if we if we wish to
try to interpret the Quran try to understand the Quran more deeply. And besides the sources also what are some of the principles that we should that we should use an interpretive put on
the first source
and what is the first thing that we should look to when we want to interpret the Quran is to look at the Quran itself. In other words, we interpret the Quran and in light of the other verses if we want to understand one verse of the Quran, for example, we look at in the light of the other verses of the Quran, where the Quran
revealed as one book and he all of it is a consistent book. It doesn't contradict itself as a lesson
on when you came in and decided that he never did roofie 11 zero.
This verse in the Quran from Surah Nisa, good enough ponder on the Quran, the Quran has added been from other than Allah, they would have surely have found very much discrepancy.
I mean, to
me this, this verse in the Quran
tells us that in fact, any there's no contradiction between any parts of the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada is denying that there be any contradiction in any parts of the Quran. In other words,
and it is not the case that you'll find one Quran one part of the Quran contradicting other parts of the Quran, but instead all of the Quran and is consistent parts of it explain others and parts of it gives him a meaning to to other parts.
One of the greatest mistakes actually in the history of Islam. Is this lacking any of not looking to the Quran as an entire entity, and he taking the Quran as a whole? Well, if we want to study the history of Islam and look at some of the data or some of the groups that deviated from the path of any what is known as as soon as
you see that the main reason that most of them deviated
and is related to this point of looking to the client as a whole to understand, for example, who are
the people who committed the great sins and whether they're flawed or not. And he had a tendency to take
particular verses from the Quran and forget other verses of the Quran while also with respect to the pushing of predestination in the different groups, and it is split up because of this question of color. And all of them took some verses from the Quran and and had a tendency to neglect or not study in detail the other verses of the Quran was was the practice of
hamdulillah any to try his best to take all the Quran as a whole and use part of the Quran to explain other parts of what this is why and I'm delighted to have been graded and in this point and have avoided the extremes that the other groups that I alluded to, for them to
was actually this aspect of the problem
as far as he stated, and he actually the Quran can be considered as if it were one sorta and one chapter, not many sort of journeys is actually one book.
Anywhere everything is possible who might have been one of the centerpieces it can be considered almost like one sin and it is all consistent and parts of itself and, and it with respect to the science of the fear.
The scholars have agreed that this is the basic principle of the first source of succeed if you want to interpret the Quran
In terms of the problem, the first source of the theory is the Quran itself. As a team he wrote, he said if someone asks, What is the best methodology of this year? He said the answer is the best methodology to see it is to explain the Quran by other verses of the Quran. What is stated generally or in general form or actually is human in one place, is explained in another place. And what is put in one in one place in an abbreviated manner and without much details is presented in detail in another place that
was was that he
was the author of probably one of the most important books, if not the most important books, and it related to the Quran and the Quran. He also says that the best way to interpret the Quran is by using the Quran itself.
What is stated in a concise fashion in one place may be elaborated upon at another place.
Also other writers have mentioned and this is the best and most trusted word trustworthy manner of deceit because no one knows the brand better than almost no one knows the meaning of
the one who revealed
Well, actually, there's a person put on so
the points to this,
this principle of interpreting the Quran, in light of other verses of the Quran.
Well, this verse in the Quran is a well known verse.
Because the unfortunate also been misinterpreted
by a number of people. Well, this is the verse in the Quran, from sort of an Iran who will again say that it can mean who is normal, or Koroma,
Malvina pupu, means even face to be onomah to share bahaman home.
It's a version that we
that we, when we are animals that we the home of LA, classic una una and NaVi kuruman, kuruman and deerupt in
this verse in the Quran,
first of all has been misinterpreted by many people because of the
what is the meaning by the way?
And is the first part of the verse and he says it is he and it is almost the kind of Allah who sent down to Mohammed the book. And it's the verses that are imperative clear. They are the foundations of the book, and others are want to share because
they don't want to give the meaning as I just asked, What is the medium what to share?
One of the problems with this verse and in fact, if you go to the translation of Mohammed Mamadou
abilities, the valley TV Erving, Mohammed, and then copied Mohammed Ali, Ahmed it, all of them translated with the showerhead, as meaning allegorical figures. What's the meaning of allegorical, everything
doesn't have literal meaning. But this is not the meaning of each other at all. And that means a verse which could have more meaning or verse whose meaning is not clear. What this verse in the Quran when we studied the terminal jewel of this verse in the Quran, from Sudan, Iran, it makes it clear that there are verses in the Quran that you could understand and in more than one way or you could misunderstand
and the principle as I was discussing any of the principles is that these verses are to be interpreted in the light of the verses which are clear buttons.
And in whichever hat are supposed to be in third interpreted and understood in life, the most common was this verse was revealed when the most when the when some Christians from the john came to the problem.
And they tried to to talk about that element missing that in the Quran itself. There's proof for Trinity.
What is the proof from the Quran? Trinity, the Trinity,
the Muslim value for sure you know, to
say what is the what was the proof in the brand?
Any their proof from the Quran, when they talk to the public about unity? They said there are verses in the Quran which any in which Allah subhana wa tada talked about himself in the plural. And we reviewed this, we did this, we did that and so forth.
And if we if we take that, the those verses in the Quran, that is true, and is that they actually they are more to share the head, you can say that they want to sell the house because they could have more, it's possible. And if you understand them in more than one way they are not the meaning is not really one. In other words, you could understand them as meaningful out and you just if you take those verses by themselves, forget about the rest of the Quran. If you if you read
universe in which you listen, I know what that is, we did sentences and it could be understood in the form of Trump.
it could be understood that we almost man without is actually talking about more than one he left
well it could be understood as is known in the Arabic language and also other non Arabic languages.
That is, for example, in royalty now, even still today when the Queen of England talks when you ask her, how are you doing, she says, we are doing fine. And he still this day she never uses the singular forms for herself. And this is the this is another way that you can understand.
A third way to understand it, which is the explanation given by a multimeter which all of you from the superclass know because we talked about them.
In the Damien's explanation was what
interpretation and explanation of these verses is that they are used, and the only one I must contend with that is referring to an action that is being done through an Malaika In other words, I'm listening to Allah is referring to himself meaning him and the money are doing him and the angels are doing the action with what is clear from these verses, and in which Allah subhana wa tada use the plural to refer to himself. If you take these verses, and you compare them to many other verses in the Quran, which are welcomed and in which have no other means possible meaning to them, such as all law, I had a low from a limited point of view, this will then become the focal point.
And if you interpret these verses in the light of the mosque, and that you will see that the claim of the Christians and of course it wasn't true, this does not mean that it does not mean
Well, this is, as I said, the specs of what actually it's alluded to in the plan itself. And inshallah later we'll talk about other principles that we can derive from the Quran itself.
And it related to disappear.
Before we get to that, we should realize that any this source is to see it is an infallible source of deceit.
Or actually, to put it perhaps in a better way, is it notes of fear, and we cannot give any explanation of the Quran that contradicts this source of deceit.
Danny, for example, we take any specific verses we put on and we try to interpret that verse and our interpretation of that verse goes against other verses of the Quran, that means that that interpretation is wrong.
I think it's clear that any of the
So, the principle again, is it any any interpretation that contradicts any part of quantum computing any worse of a put on that interpretation must be rejected completely. And as I said, inshallah, we will discuss some other principles besides that, that come directly from the Quran itself related to
now I just like to give some examples of how Allah subhana wa tada
how we will find for example, in parts of the Quran we'll find something and in other parts of the Quran, excuse me, we'll find the explanation for that.
For example, Allah subhanaw taala died in an invoke it up this Adam received from his Lord words and he relented toward
the moment Ravi calamus in the valley.
You need this? In this verse in photos in Baccarat, it simply says that Allah subhana wa tada taught
Adam the words and he for him to stay, and throughout his offense, but in that particular verse, it doesn't say what are those words? And he just says that Allah subhanaw taala gave him some words, and he that
he could make us
that's the lesson kind of as to forgive him. What were those words?
You may say, you may you may see.
Now, that we find in this and also
we find the explanation for this verse, or specifically what this verse is referring to, we find it and adding a pseudo
pseudo omegas Lara was 23 in which the words that Adam were taught was
so good or no, we have wronged yourself if you forgive us not, and have not mercy on us, you were of the law.
Well, another example
also, is the perhaps even more important example something that we should all realize, and we should all realize the meaning of this verse. And that is the verse in Soros and Bethlehem, in which you read
We ask Allah Subhana Allah to guide us to the streets that
the person who
to get to the straight path,
the path of those who are less than headed with data had
one of these people
left behind with data and the Quran clearly tells us who these people are.
I'm just talking about this.
More than Edina, and I'm sorry. And who are these people that are left behind what data has been? Actually it was written into the
press today and last night?
Which is home? Where's this verse? Explain?
To me the explanation for this verse, and who are those people? And when we make what we in the slot?
When we read the source, in fact, we're asking Allah subhanho wa Taala, to guide us to a specific path. And in fact that specific people call us in hand with data that actually tells us who are those people that we are asking to be guided in a similar path, and they are the prophets and the sincere and the martyrs and the righteous.
One of the verse in the Quran also that was read to me, by the way, many of these verses
I think this has
something to do
Let them handle the data. And then
the second one is
let's do with data and talking about the hood. The purpose
here is to figure out who should do
and which is from Sudoku Baccarat. Then even after that your hearts were hardened and became as rocks are worse than rocks and
worse I'm thinking is 50 of the Quran.
who by the way, so I'm thinking is to assume the Quran is probably the best. And using this principle of sincere and it to explain parts of the Quran biodiversity factors clip from the title of this episode, and this is one of his points. Well, he says that in this verse, And Allah subhana wa tada only says that their hearts were made hard. But it doesn't say what was the reason? And it's not explained in this verse and sort of
what is the reason? This episode read today in
verse 13, I sort of denied Allison Hannah with Dolly lanes and Is it because of their breaking the covenant that I'll let them handle with data that we have crucify them and we have made their hearts hearts?
Well, actually, there are there are many. And we can take many examples of this nature from the Quran as it did one book, which is excellent, once a year, which is excellent in that nature is the conservatives.
Were actually this practice of interpreting Iran in light of other verses of the Quran as it says it has its source in the Quran itself was was a very common practice among the Sahaba. Well, I said especially was one of the was one of the best. And when it came to extreme verses in the Quran, on the basis of other verse in the Quran is used to correct some people's misunderstandings of some person based on any other verse in the Quran.
Another another professor who also use this principle, and use this quite well actually, although he's not that well known for using this principle that will
sit in the shade of the Quran of Quran
and use this principle actually extensively. And to take one example from that an example which even
any verse which even some Muslims have, have in my history have come to me and asked me about
which confuses some people that is the sort of thing he said,
I think was also written if I remember correctly,
in the CBOE is the medium rasulillah Where can he lead the world? In the Merriam Romero
that the Jesus the Messiah, the Son of Mary was no more than a messenger of Allah and His word, which he bestowed on Mary and a spirit proceed proceeding from him. And especially of course, Muslims who embraced Islam in the United States coming from a Christian background.
And because of the concept, any sometimes you still have some things lingering in your mind from from your past. We call this an English old baggage old luggage, sometimes hard to get rid of
old luggage, but even Muslims anywhere had no any background in Christianity. Some of them have been confused by this verse. And he specifically the phrase Jan is his word, Allah subhana wa tada goes Raisa, and he can image the world and he lemery also ramen
was probably because of the influence of Christianity and so forth, even spreading into the Muslim men. And so people get confused by these verses. And think that perhaps he says something a little bit different from
other human beings. And there's something special about him. And in fact, I was in
an account in California not too long ago, where there
there was a woman who used to be originally she's Muslim, she became Christian. And now she's just returning to, to, to Islam. And we had a little bit of debate about about eight and eight. And he did, she still considers him something a little bit more special than the other prophets or something. And one of the reasons is because of this verse, and he that Allah subhana wa God is describing is an h&m as I said, as a word which he bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from him was I said, discusses this. This verse in particular very well in is the dividend cron and seems that even during his time in Egypt, there was some question about what is the meaning of the what is
meant in this verse by a word bestowed on marriage.
And by the way, remember what we're talking about the topic is explaining the Quran in view of the verse of the Quran. So what is what is really the word
let's have a handle with data. It says McCullough in the olden Olden only seen either an opponent by a cone and if the word that Allah subhana wa tada is talking about here is corn. And y'all know what that is that corn or be the verse in English says for to anything which we have will we say B and it says, any Allah subhana wa tada that simply said, corn and a B. And he needs to know what
what is the meaning of rock and also this first verse that we can aim at the hula hula Miriam Murakami.
I will give you what
what the third quarter brought about,
you know, it's not for me
to give the blame or the responsibility, whichever the case may be to quit. And
then you should realize it's
not something doesn't have to be something special. Because this is something that Allah subhanaw taala described in the Quran in the same way that when Allah subhana wa Tada, created human beings were created in the simplicity. And it is also a Muslim henna without as it is the father of the scholar of Buddhism, Monica in the
same way that the way to who when the path to see him in
the crowd who said he did lots of heroin data says in this verse, because the Lord said to the angels, I am about to create man from clay, when I have fashioned him and breathe into him of my spirit, flow you down and prostrations unto him was this is any this verse in the Quran telling us that actually all of creation all living beings, a lot, but any, any all of mankind, Allah subhana wa tada when He created us, and He breathed into us any spirits from him. from him he doesn't have it's not some people who believe in what they take this to mean it this person's role has prompt him. Also another verse,
any to support this
interpretation of state.
This in fact, any the the word that he bestowed on Mary and Ross is nothing different from the process this data had been flowing
from the from the time of Adam and Eve This is also supported very clearly, as I put the point up by another verse,
in which Alison hanworth data did in the method at the lake and entity Adam, held up a woman to Robin to makanan, who can play
English This is the similitude of Jesus before Allah, as that was Adam, created him from dust then said to him, he and he was
what any This is, as if it says any of this is just one example from that book, similar and
and it's sometimes this interpretation
of one versus in view of other verses is really based on each head.
And it's sometimes it's not a clear thing
that you can see and is if I interpret this verse in light, and according to what another verse is, sometimes it is not as good as the examples I gave are pretty clear. Sometimes they are not that clear. But even when it is the case of
the evidence is there the relation between the two verses may not be as strong as perhaps you would like them to be. Still, that other verse in the Quran is a stronger statement than what someone can come
can come from his own opinion. And in other words, if I if I interpret a verse of the Quran and the life of another verse, and the relationship between them is not real strong, but there's the relationship between them.
And he feels that that other statement of God and the Quran would be stronger than someone coming with a statement from the Quran to interpret the first verse. So sometimes it is clear and it's beyond question other times there is some he has invoked.
Those were simply examples from the Quran itself. How the Quran can explain itself. In other words, as an smec, he says in other scholars have said, you will find sometimes one verse stating something deeply. And you will find it explained simply simply, or a verse will refer to something for example, those people whom Allah has blessed
and will define explicitly in another burst who they are, when in cases like that, it's very difficult to need to question
the results of the conclusions that that kind of that kind of
usually when you look when you read books about the number one and number two fear for example,
usually what when they talk about the foreigners interpreting itself
or the Quran in its relationship with the fear usually that's all you read the verses interpret other verses, and then they'll bring some examples like what we brought, but even more importantly is that in the Quran itself, there are many principles of deceit. And in other words, we can derive many rules of secede from the Quran itself.
This is similar to the case for example, in Romans Hadees, in which many of the rules the principles regarding regarding Jehovah ideas or who to accept this narrative and who to reject, I actually explicitly related to verses in the Quran was similarly also with respect to the fear and it has many principles that we can get derived from, from the Quran itself.
One principle I think this is going to be broken in a few minutes.
And one principle of the Quran that we can derive from the plan related to fear and this is what the the gist of the entire lecture last time was, is it anyone may not speak about the Quran without and without knowledge, no one is allowed to follow one's own desires and interpret the Quran or to base their opinions upon them for an unconfirmed manners or speculation. And they did, we discussed that last time, we gave the course the medical opinion about what should be done to such such people.
And also we also gave him an opinion that any speaking about the listener without or without them, is perhaps one of the and he actually stated the grid could be it could be committed.
Secondly, also as we just alluded to, we can see in the Quran itself that parts of the Quran interpret other parts of the plant and it is not just the practical results that we get from the scholars assistir but the Quran itself, alludes to it. For example, Allah subhana wa Taala says he tells us as a boo boo Mattila,
wants another verse, he never wants to see that.
And he this, these these verses in the Quran, say Danny This is a book the revelations were up or perfected and then expanded a book where of the verses are exposed. And in other words, Allah subhana wa tada did not leave the Quran without being explained as it is not to Alice's to main arena, Diane
was the way that all this data reveal explained the Quran was through the Quran itself. And as we'll talk about later, also through the through the
third principle of to see if any, directly related to the directly derived from the Quranic verses itself, and which we also mentioned earlier is to any to interpret the and what to show the heads of the Quran in the light of the Muslims or interpret those verses in the Quran, that are open to more than one interpretation and delight in the guidance of those verses of Quran which are not open to more than one interpretation.
A fourth principle
which was the question
and what is the meaning of the motors motor shall they run with the showerhead? Again, as we discussed earlier, and as you as you mentioned, Yanni,
scholars have given different meanings. And in particular, they have referred it to different things. will also this is related on how the versus this is also related to how the verse is to be read. The verse can be read in two different ways. Both ways of reading it are correct and acceptable.
And in what the server has exactly what it means, and in the correct definition of what to separate, as understood by the huddle from the earliest generation is a verse or meaning having a verse was meaning to be more than one is open to more than one meaning as opposed to mahkumat, which any verse is not open to more than one mean, in fact, some of the some of the setup include including even our birth data, find it even more specifically than that, according to our best the multi showerheads are what,
what other ones?
Now, according to
the show the hats are the verses which have been abrogated.
the person verses that have been abrogated, what commands are those verses which are still to be applied in that?
Well, this interpretation that he is given, and it is exclusionary to him through authentic change, and it is
an opinion held by some of the senators, including his image, but the more general meaning, or more general understanding of the verse is any that
there are verses that have more than more than one meaning, or any whose meaning by themselves is not clear. Well, another reason why there's some confusion about the medium of Shall we had in this verse is because there's two ways to read the verse.
With respect to that, we have the verse of the mukachevo head, Allah subhana wa Taala says, we'll know we'll make animals that we the whole Illa law,
with some people stuck there, that no one knows it, that we accept them.
While others read it. And again, both of these are from the center will know your animals that we know that we live in a live around the corner.
And either no one knows this, that will except for Allah. And those people who have knowledge, both readings are correct, both readings are proper. The problem is that in the two different readings that the words that will has a completely different meaning.
Word that we'll and the two different readings have completely different reading. And if you if you, if you if you read
about those people who read it in one way and how they explained the verse, you'll see that they understood the word that we have, in a completely different way. The words that we have, as we mentioned earlier, in the previous lecture has more than one meaning.
And the seller, according to the seller, for the early scholars, even according to the release clause, it has more than one meaning when they when they, when they get along with that we know that we know in the law, Rusty horn if it hadn't been anyone, they continue.
And he did not stop it. Online, they stated that any only online most people have knowledge, know that we'll have it What's the meaning of that we'll in this case, the way they read.
The meaning of that we in this case is that the fear or the meaning of the word, and the plain meaning of the word.
When they read it, when we get animals that we eat a whole lot and stop there, what's the meaning of that we're
gonna love it.
We said so we'll add different means one of the one of the meanings is the actualization, and or the realization of what the verse is talking about. So for example, the verses that talk about didn't know what not.
And in fact, this is why, by the way, some of them and some of them have been criticized for this is that the verses of
concerning and the smell was the best the names of Allah, and the attributes of a lot of their problems. And even what he said he had, and what some of them means, or what some of the meaning from that is one thing which is incorrect, but what some of them mean by that statement, and clearly when they when they discuss it further, what they mean by that is this the some weird, or the actual, any attributes of a law and the actual essence of a law is something that only almost man without a nose.
Like, though, depending on how you read that verse,
the words that will have a different meaning, but in general, any other word any back to the original question that we had, in general, basically, it is those verses that have more than one possible meaning to them. And the way that they're supposed to be interpreted is in the life of
the fourth principle.
question is whether or not there's a difference of opinion now among the scholars about what are the most what are the verses which are clear
For example, and therefore this applies also what are the most?
Well, among the earlier generations, there was very little difference. There, the only difference between them was with respect, as I said to the way they defined that we in the verse, this will influence you and what they meant by
that if you if you define the wheel as the actualization of something, then all of those verses that we cannot see exactly,
exactly any how they happen, or what they describe, which is the attributes of a law, what will happen on the Day of Judgment, then they call them from the
journey, they became a big difference after some time because of that difference in the words that we put from the earliest generation.
And the word mahkamah meant, those verses which are clear and the meaning, not open to different interpretations, they are all multitap they are the foundation of the book, and the other verses in the head are supposed to be interpreted in light. But if we continue this series long enough, we'll come back to
principle of the fear.
The fourth principle of the fifth any that we derived directly from the Quran is this the Prophet Mohammed seldom has been appointed, and he or he is in fact, the divine, divinely appointed interpreter of the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says ones in a lick of the cup, he to be the beginning nothing to lose the regulation. And if we have revealed to you the vicar, the meaning of the career in different any difference of opinion about what it means among the scholars, but the meaning comes out the same then this we have revealed to you for you to use Mohammed's record in order for you to explain to mankind what has been revealed to them. Well, we will discuss any the
root of the problem in explaining the Quran in great detail in just a few minutes.
If we get to
the fifth principle of the season the Quran
is that and this one also was discussed in great detail later. The fifth principle is that the Quran is in the Arabic language.
And he looked at goddess dresses this back How many times
does Allah subhanaw taala refer to the Quran as Arabic?
From my from what i've only lived
with that is described in the Quran, Arabic what that means and we'll discuss this point also
later, very detailed. What that means is that it is consistent with the Arabic language. So in other words, one of the major principles of this year is that in order to understand the Quran, you must interpret it according to the principles and the rules of the Arabic language. And as it didn't shala we'll discuss that in great detail later.
The sixth principle from the Quran itself, which is important for to see it is that some of the rulings of the Quran have been abrogated
the sixth one, as I said is that some of the rulings or some of the rulings from reverse in the Quran are abrogated.
Well, while this we find very clearly in the Quran in different places in the Quran, IMHO Impala Mahamaya yet we have a woman.
And he this alert was released with he will confirm it and with him, the
woman will not try to get to the
nothing or abrogation is also confirmed as sort of the bucket up.
Which is kind of what Dallas is for whatsoever verse we can sort of cause the messenger to forget we bring a better or the like.
Well, this is by the way, an important consideration some verses in the Quran, the meaning of some verses or I mean the application of some verses or the rulings of some verses have been abrogated.
We shall someday we'll discuss this topic in more detail. Again, this is as I said, this is one of the principles of proceeds that is derived directly from the Quran. especially nowadays. Some people when they interpret the Quran, the any they forget this point, and they try to make every verse in the Quran as being mcomber has been and is still being applied today. The seventh principle Quran which is clear from the Quran itself,
is it everything in the Quran is literally true unless there's a ton
It takes to the contrary,
everything in the Koran is literally true.
This is an important point. And in many, many of the dunya or modernists has some problem with this point. Many of the movies in history has come from this point. And almost all of what's known as the was the NEA or the esoterics have a problem with this point. And he did what the Quran says is true regardless of what the topic is referring to. It is in fact, true. In fact, at the end of
at the end, and many people they consider some of the stories, some of the historical stories of the Quran is not being true, not being literally true. But remember one lecture I quoted from Mohammed s commentary in the Quran in which he talks about the story of cinnamon and others, and he said they are not true.
Were any actually one of the one of the most important one of the famous famous stories in the in the, in the Quran, one of the longest stories in the Quran in fact, it is the surah itself, pretty much any text This
is the story of use. Where at the end of the story abusive look 100 with God, Allah subhana wa tada says, number 10 is the closest to him ever, ever to Nikola Albert McKenna had eaten up when I came to sleep in the secret Marina been easy. It's a secret stick in the DVD. And you have a subpoena with data at the end of this long story. Allah subhana wa tada says that any Indian history is a lesson for men of understanding. It is no inventive story, but a confirmation of personalization and so on.
Well also unless 100 to Allah says in the Quran, was one of the views in a camera because
well, I can Esther Nathanael
and he this would almost kind of without as revealed to you of the book is true.
And as I said, this is a very important point. Because many of the spheres throughout history, they end they deviated because of this point that he considered that what Allah subhanho wa Taala is mentioning, whether it is related to the
related to the earlier prophets, whether it's related to the Day of Judgment, whether it's related to agenda or not, whether it's related to Allah subhana wa Tada, many of them they said that, in fact, these are not really true. And that they are not actually meaning, meaning what they say to the point that some of the philosophers in history, such as even seen even they said a genuine na are not actually true. And they are just ways that Allah subhana wa tada may encourage people to do good and keep them away from from doing evil. One modern author he wrote in his PhD dissertation, he said that all love needs not resort to invented stories in order to give a religious lesson. And if
Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to give us a lesson he wants to make us understand some any something that has a long history that he knows everything about it doesn't have to make up stories and he doesn't have to make up things for us to learn from any end. The same author he makes the point that it is interesting to note here, that every time a parable is used in the Quran, it is identified as a parable so as not to confuse it and not to confuse it non historical, fictitious Miss with historical reality of other events, in other words, every time and lots of what data is talking in a way which he doesn't mean literally what he's saying or what some kind of a data pointed out, for
and I'm gonna give a bit of a low method elements and put us in Christian Jesus into us. And Allah subhanho wa Taala points out that
sentences do not see how Allah coins a parable, a goodly word is like a goodly tree. And he
clearly says here that in fact Daniel
can it'll kill him isn't forgiver there's not actually any a good tree, but I'll let her handle what data it makes it clearly that this is what every time in the Quran which Allah subhana wa tada makes this variable, Allah subhana wa tada points out that this is a parallel. So what this means again is that everything any in the Quran is true literally as a state. Unless there is something for example, like this person which Allah says it is a parable without
unless there is something to show me that it is not
its literal truth. Also any this by the way, related to another lecture, I gave about how to benefit or how to approach the Quran. And it is also has a
great deal of influence on the person when he reads the Quran and how much he gets
from the Quran. Because any when you read the stories of the prophets and when you read what Allah subhanaw taala talks about in the Quran, it makes a big difference between you thinking that this is just stories made up just to get some lessons and from you believing and knowing that these are things that actually happen in that Allah subhanaw taala
And he did these things throughout throughout history. But as I said,
with respect to principle of Cassia Allah subhanho wa Taala is very clear that the Quran is literally true and what it says is literally true was they said proud history especially Sophie's and others they had quite a bit problem
with this aspect,
the eight points that we can see from the Quran
is it beyond the basic meanings of the meaning or the clear meaning that if we study and ponder the Quran deeper, we will also get more meanings from the Quran or more,
to be more specific,
or to stay to better will in fact get more guidance from the Quran.
Allah subhana wa tada that says
he doesn't know who he like Mubarak mubaraka. Mubarak, he is the guru.
Now let's handle Dallas is a book that we reveal them to you full of blessings as they may ponders revelation, and at minimum understanding may reflect also the provinces dilemma as we discussed, he may do our for even our best to understand or to know that that we are the understanding of the Quran. What this verse in the Quran means, or what it implies also is it and the more we understand, the more we read the Quran, we get any deeper meanings or more understandings of the meanings of the Quran.
What is important to point out here again, as we, as we mentioned in the seven points, the D four meetings are not things that contradict the literal meaning.
But they are in fact any meanings in the sense that we see more how the Quran is applied to different different circumstances.
What is also any principle that we can derive from the,
from the Quran regarding the fear that the more we study versus the more we can understand how these verses are to be applied in our life. And as I said, this deeper understanding, according to the seven principle always has to be
any consistent with the literal meaning of the person.
And if some people they took this point as meaning, and there's some we can even some fabricated, headed that support them on this. And he has meaning that there is
a verb meaning or basic meaning or a clear meaning, or an apparent meaning to the rod. And there's also a hidden meaning to the Koran. Well, this hidden meaning to the Quran is the one that they seek, and they neglect the meaning or the more apparent meaning, or this is also a point. This is not what I'm alluding to here. That kind of practice of course has to be one should be careful about that and should What is
the name, the ninth principle that we can derive from the Quran itself.
And this principle as opposed to the other
it does not clearly and we cannot take for example, one verse of the Quran and say that this verse of the Quran As I mentioned in the other principles, and it leads us to this principle but no one will read the Quran we see that Allah subhana wa tada in order for us to understand
and what the Quran is talking about Allah subhanaw taala
Allah subhana wa tada reverse refers to many events knock on wood does not mention these events, specifically until it's exactly what these events are. Well, this is actually as I said, it's not a principle that we can infer from Quranic verses. But this is actually something forced upon us from the Quran itself that we have to refer to this verb in the zoo or the context of the revelation of Allah subhana wa Tada, folks above, for example, but talks about many, many, many things that
many things that occurred that occurred during the lifetime of the problem of sustenance, while Allah subhanho wa Taala Of course, knows that in later time, and he would, for those people who are not alive as at them, they cannot understand these,
these principles or these events, these verses, clearly without referring to this
smallness of henna with Allah by Allah Subhana. Allah is waiting Quran is forcing us to accept and apply the principle of looking to the servant or the context of the realization to understand many verses in the Quran. Well, later inshallah, we're doing much of a lot of things that we'll discuss more about the zoo, how do we know them and what are some of the conditions related to the zoo? Because it is a topic that is misunderstood by some brothers because any not everything that was harvested, and it with respect to specific verses means that that's the seventh zone. And sometimes they would say that this reverse this verse was revealed, because of such and such and they do not
mean that that is the seventh. We'll discuss.
10th and 11th 10th and 11th principles that we can get
from the Quran itself.
And these are actually two principles. It's
not always the people apply when making decisions. And many people don't realize that they actually their sources from the Quran itself
why these two principles
The first one is to avoid useless details and commenting on the Quran
to avoid useless details and commenting on
any what's the Quran has sometimes Allah subhanaw taala leaves things without being mentioned. And they are in fact not needed for us. I will I will mention the two points together and I will give you any the verse which is the basis for these two points. And one is avoiding the 10th point of visit as avoiding useless details. And the 11th. One is to avoid what are known as destroy yet.
And to avoid going to
the any Jews and Christians who get their stories have to get their principles applying
the basis for these two principles is what
and one verse.
The verses from sort of caste, verse 22, which allows any describing
the people in the cave, they will say they were three, and the dog was the fourth. And they say they were five and the dog was the sixth guessing at random. And they'll say seven and the dog the eight. Say my lord is best aware of their number none knows them save a few. So contain lots concerning them except where the matter is certain and consult not one of them there
was nothing. I have discussed
this verse in any in some detail.
One of the principles of the of the verse shows that there are some things and is it is clear for our guidance. We don't need that information.
And those details that we don't need for our information, Allah subhanho wa Taala when when Allah subhanaw taala, for example, that says, The earlier prophets, for example, or the story of the cave, and he there was a long discussion, unfortunately, in some books of Scripture, for example, what color What color was the goal?
was the name of the Angelo's discussion good. And it's very strange that this these the sessions that come in the same sort of that this verse comes and he this verse should make it clear to us that any the there's some information that we don't need for guidance. And no, there's no need to go into it in, in, in the sphere.
Where this by the way, this not only applies to historical information, but you find specially Nowadays many fears that are filled with scientific information, which has no role in the society and is in fact is not needing to succeed whatsoever.
Well, assembly also this verse is warning us and cautioning us about going through the energy tests and any training to get benefits we're trying to get guidance of trying to get away from them. Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala, as it says, is warning us in this verse for Angela in the future. Another lecture will be about in this earlier years of Quran. But Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly warns us, and it will, we'll have to see him moving ahead. And if we should not include one of them. Why unfortunately, one of the reasons for lots of nonsense in the book, throughout history has been this turning to the entity, Deb, and who gets
to get there to get some of this story and putting in putting it in to explain why this is not necessary that we put it into 10 grand promises that we may relate from Israel, and there's no harm in doing that. But there's a big difference between relating their stories, and relating what they relate to the history and taking that information and saying that this is the medium to put on, based on that information that they're giving us as a big difference between the two. Well, there's no case that we can find in which the publicist didn't approve, does anyone have a Sahaba or he himself and he approved of the action of going to them to try to interpret the Koran is a big
difference between allowing it to narrate their history and their stories and using that to interpret the Quran. So this the last two principles that we can get directly from the Quran and then to avoid any unnecessary details that are not needed for again, what's the lesson here with that and as included in the Quran is sufficient was also related to that just to avoid any going to the people of the book and trying to learn from them to add to our to
what the next topic is the next the second source of the fear
which is the sooner the policy sentiment is rather lengthy. So I prefer that we if we stopped here, and in the tape would have been filled had we not stopped every five minutes.
