like to welcome you all to our

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

fifth lecture in our series

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

take place tonight and shall on March 28 1992, and Ramadan 25th or 24th and 23rd

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

depending on which when you begin

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

the series

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

has been covering, So, far the sources of critique, most of you were present

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

some of them not all of you, but most of you

00:00:49 --> 00:00:56

last time we talked about the role of the Sahaba and succeed and the importance of the placement of the hub in

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

one particular we

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


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

his fear

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

a little bit about his background, so forth.

00:01:07 --> 00:01:16

We talked about the Quran as a source of deceit and we talked about the sun as a source of proceeds. And in both lectures, we ended the lectures with

00:01:18 --> 00:01:30

principles of the sphere coming from the Quran and principles of deceit coming from the will similarly, if we go to the Sahaba, and you finishing up what we started last, last time, before we move on to today's topic,

00:01:33 --> 00:02:01

also, we go to the Sahaba and the students and let them we prove that the payments of the Sahaba in general in the theatre, budget authority, and we also show from the Quran and from the heads of the provinces in them that in general their example is supposed to be called. So, therefore, also we should look at some of the principles that they apply. And we should all we should do our best also to, to apply them inshallah, when we take on the test,

00:02:03 --> 00:02:08

the first principle which is basically something we discussed in the first lecture and recorded from Uncle Buck, and we quoted from others.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:18

And he The first principle that we find from the Sahaba very clearly about the series is not allowed to speak about the Quran, without

00:02:19 --> 00:02:22

to give interpretation of the Quran without.

00:02:23 --> 00:02:31

But everything at this stage, we must do our best to have some support from it from recognized sources.

00:02:32 --> 00:02:39

One other aspect of another principle of deceit that we find, in the case of the Sahaba

00:02:40 --> 00:03:09

if we studied the Sahaba statement about the future, we'll see that one principle that they get through with any avoiding excessive details regarding the words of the Quran, and regarding the verses of Quran and as long as the as the meaning of the Quran, as long as the meaning of the verse is understood. And as long as any how the verses to be applied is understood, and it's not necessary, not necessary to go into further detail.

00:03:11 --> 00:03:13

This is based on the number of instances from the time of the

00:03:15 --> 00:03:17

of the Sahaba, the most famous incident,

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

or the most famous statement, I guess, comes from

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

the law.

00:03:25 --> 00:03:27

This incident

00:03:28 --> 00:03:34

was when Alma was recited one verse of the Quran was the verse of the Quran ends

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

by saying

00:03:37 --> 00:03:39

has been one of the

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

what's the meaning of these two words?

00:03:43 --> 00:03:47

And if you think that, know the meaning of these two words,

00:03:48 --> 00:03:49

what does it mean everyone

00:03:54 --> 00:03:55

adequately has

00:03:57 --> 00:03:58

the point is actually that

00:03:59 --> 00:04:01

we see in different iterations, we

00:04:03 --> 00:04:07

knew the meaning in general the words, and when he asked himself first, what is the meaning.

00:04:08 --> 00:04:42

And then he said to me that this is beyond what is necessary to go into that. And you know, the media in general, but you didn't know all of the characteristics, or all of the, all of the items that that word applies. Well, when it came to that point, anywhere, he knows the meaning and he knows what the purpose of the verses, then he said to me beyond that, there's no need to go beyond. For also we see in the another principle that we see among the most of Sahaba is the importance of looking at feminism to understand the meanings of the verses of the Quran.

00:04:43 --> 00:04:56

We find many examples of the Sahaba pointing out to people that they're Miss understanding specific verses of the Quran. And the reason they're misunderstanding those specific verses of Quran is because they did not understand

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

any occasions behind that

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

Revelation of that verse and what that verse is actually referring to? Well, perhaps the many, there's many examples that we can we can give of that nature. One of them was the story of a boy ubelong story,

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

which the in which the Muslims were fighting.

00:05:21 --> 00:05:22

In Europe in Constantinople, he

00:05:25 --> 00:05:31

was the weather. Number one, the weather was very bad, and they were ended, the Muslims actually were.

00:05:33 --> 00:05:49

And he also helped men and were basically when they fight, they were getting close to always being defeated when they fight. So some of them argued, on the basis of one verse of the Quran, that under those circumstances, they should not fight. What was the verse that he uses?

00:05:53 --> 00:05:54

And he did not

00:05:56 --> 00:06:07

buy your own and do not buy your own hands, take yourself to destruction. While we're over, you will, I'm sorry, was there that time when he heard them anything these payments,

00:06:08 --> 00:06:26

he says the new people are not understanding this Bruce grip, way explained the birth and how it should be understood and explained it and how it should be understood from the point of view, when it was related and what there was related concern. Well, he says that this verse was related or it was revealed concerning us

00:06:28 --> 00:06:33

that it was revealed concerning us the answer to that after the conquest of Mecca,

00:06:34 --> 00:06:35

the Mecca,

00:06:36 --> 00:06:48

and he appears on third had had sacrificed so much of the time and so much of their wealth for the sake of Allah Subhana, WA tada and allow their, their, their farms and, and other business dealings to, to,

00:06:49 --> 00:07:26

to decrease value, or at least not spend much time on them. And after the conquest of Mecca, some of them said, I need to know it's time that we can go back and take care of our things and, and perhaps relax with respect to jihad. So avoidable and thought he said at that time, this verse was revealed, where the meaning of this verse, and he did not destroy yourself, by your own hands and not Johnny's not talking about committing suicide or entering a situation where it looks like you will probably be killed. But he's talking about leaving the Jihad and not giving for the sake of all this kind of attack. When you stop, and he makes your head and when you do not give for the sake of Allah subhana

00:07:26 --> 00:07:48

wa Tada. Then you are in essence, as Allah subhanaw taala told on thought, even after all those years, that they sacrificed for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. And when you do that you are in fact destroying yourself by your own hands. In other words, by your own deeds, you're leading yourself to, to disruption. Well, actually, there's many examples when we talk later about revenues or we can

00:07:49 --> 00:07:50

we can discuss more.

00:07:55 --> 00:08:07

Another principle that the, that they demonstrated to us is it's important. And when when trying to make the silver Quran it's important to be familiar with the customs of the Arabs during the time of

00:08:09 --> 00:08:18

Mecca, Medina, and also the situation of the Jews and Christians in the Arabian Peninsula. Because many verses, any refer

00:08:20 --> 00:08:21

two things that that

00:08:22 --> 00:08:26

happened during that time without realizing what the

00:08:27 --> 00:08:36

end what the verses actually bring about what In other words, what is the practice of getting to for example, that the verse is referring, referring to, you will actually get, again,

00:08:37 --> 00:08:56

an increase incorrect understanding of the verse Now this is slightly different from a southern zoo. And this these things were not revealed because of these incidents, but they're referred to for example, in the Quran, any of you who have made the Hajj or Umrah you know about going between Southern Morocco? What is the theme of Iran about going between

00:08:57 --> 00:08:59

what His Holiness says about

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

the verse in the Quran? If you just read it from every point of view? What is it implying about going between?

00:09:10 --> 00:09:14

Is it implying that if it was, is it applying its muster hub is applying it?

00:09:16 --> 00:09:21

Can if you read the verse you would think, and he said there's no blame and to go

00:09:22 --> 00:09:29

between Southern Morocco Have you read the verse you would think that is saying that can go in between the two. It's simply something about

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

what the Sahaba they use this principle to explain these kinds of verses. This verse in particular is referring to what

00:09:36 --> 00:09:46

you're going to talk to us about in the zoo, but any the verses in reference to a practice of the knee or something, any concept that they had, why is this reverse revealed in that way?

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

And the verses referring to the fact that and in the Sahaba, and it with respect to going between Southern Morocco, which is of course an obligatory accent hydrometer

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

before that time there was an idle, there used to be part of

00:10:06 --> 00:10:36

part of going back and forth that they used to, I forget which place it was located. So they felt like they should not do that anymore, that should not be part of the HUD because of what it used to represent. So the verse in the Quran is not making a statement that it's words, or whatever, but it is pointing out to them, and it is part of the head. And you're not not from the pagan Arabia, but from the time of the crime and it was in other words, it is one of the things of Allah Subhana Allah and there's no harm

00:10:37 --> 00:10:37

in doing

00:10:38 --> 00:10:41

similarly, the fifth principle that we find

00:10:44 --> 00:10:53

this principle that we find among the Sahaba is he showed us is the use of Arabic poetry, and knowing Arabic vocabulary and grammar and so on.

00:10:55 --> 00:10:56

Arabic poetry

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

shala we will discuss this more later.

00:11:03 --> 00:11:08

Also, they they showed us, the Sahaba also showed us when

00:11:10 --> 00:11:12

and how it is permissible to make he had and making the

00:11:14 --> 00:11:30

first lecture was all about not to speak without and while the Sahaba also any, they they emphasize their points of speaking with our knowledge about the Quran, and at the same time they showed us and it helps to make ehdn On what basis to make headway. That's also a topic that we'll discuss.

00:11:31 --> 00:11:44

What are the seventh principle that they showed us once again, and he showed it again from the Koran. He showed it from the heads of the provinces and then and also from the harbor. And that is to refrain from using destroying the earth or going to

00:11:47 --> 00:11:51

the Jews and Christians and use this story and use what they have narrated in

00:11:54 --> 00:11:56

less than we mentioned in our buses statement.

00:11:57 --> 00:12:01

On that point. Anybody remember his statement on that point? was a very clear statement.

00:12:05 --> 00:12:07

Again, for those who weren't here last time.

00:12:09 --> 00:12:37

And it's recording this and Buhari, he said, Oh Muslims, you ask the people of the book, while your book that was revealed to your prophet has the most recent report from Allah. And it is the book that has not been distorted. And I'll let those you that the People of the Book distorted the books of Allah and change them with their hands and said this is from Allah, in order to get the measly game hasn't what you received the knowledge prevented you from asking them by a line never see any of them asking you about what was revealed to you.

00:12:38 --> 00:12:44

This is the obverse basically showing us that

00:12:45 --> 00:12:48

they are not a source of knowledge for us when it comes to

00:12:51 --> 00:12:56

sleep. Those are some of the principles that we get from the Sahaba with respect to theatre

00:12:58 --> 00:13:11

was we mentioned last time how to do the people most knowledgeable of the current weather we have to see it as we mentioned also lessen their weight in general is something that we should follow. And these are the some of the principles that we can derive

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

from their

00:13:14 --> 00:13:17

their statements on the principles of procedure.

00:13:22 --> 00:13:27

Before we move on to the places Arabic language is a source of students one one last topic

00:13:28 --> 00:13:30

or one one other topic also that we should

00:13:32 --> 00:13:38

that we should consider? Well, this is the status of the statements of the Sylvain

00:13:40 --> 00:13:47

Danny How should we consider or how should we deal with the statements that have been made?

00:13:48 --> 00:13:56

Any are these should be considered Hojun authority and succeed or not? Well, like the cases however, I will open it up open a question for

00:13:58 --> 00:13:58


00:13:59 --> 00:14:03

obviously any hover the past Sunday enter the domain

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

was the domain Yeah, it became the most notable generation of the Quran after this.

00:14:11 --> 00:14:21

What is also another point that we should keep in mind whether when we consider the whether or not the statements of the terrain should be considered journal, as we mentioned many times in the past

00:14:22 --> 00:14:33

that any during the time of the problem and during much of the time the Sahaba then in the Quran, the meaning of the Quran was clear. So they didn't actually have to say they have to say that this means that this means

00:14:35 --> 00:14:41

and he this person is this and this and this and there is lots of knowledge that was known but it wasn't stated because everyone knows it was clear.

00:14:43 --> 00:15:00

And as more and more people and introduce them and more and more any new people came and we're not that familiar with the Arabic language or with the life of the Prophet Hamas or philam. More and more statements that we made. That's why the older they have a Hulu

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

longer, we buy more statements.

00:15:04 --> 00:15:09

So should that be consideration when we talk about the statements of the Sylvain answer?

00:15:10 --> 00:15:17

And it could it be the case that they are actually saying things which are clear were well known during the time of the Sahaba. But they are forced to say now, because of these ignorant people tell me

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


00:15:21 --> 00:15:28

So we don't find anything in the Quran. We don't find anything in the Hadees we don't find a statement of the husband all we find is a feminism name.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:32

Given that back,

00:15:33 --> 00:15:34

should we take it as

00:15:39 --> 00:15:40

according to mmm

00:15:43 --> 00:15:45

as is often the case there to nourish?

00:15:46 --> 00:15:47

number one, and

00:15:48 --> 00:15:50

number two, it is not.

00:15:53 --> 00:15:58

And this is the many, many other scholars say that it is not.

00:15:59 --> 00:16:14

The reason they say it's not just because there's a big difference between them and the problem as we mentioned last time, and one of the major advantages of the Sahaba was not just being taught any verbally by the problem, but being able to see the puppet implementing upon

00:16:15 --> 00:16:38

and to see him actually implementing this is something much more much beyond actually just google saying this person exists or your place in this room. So So therefore, the the vein did not see the policies didn't implement the Quran, they did not hear any speech from the provinces directly. So, therefore, we cannot assume when they make the fear that they may have heard it from the public, because in fact you did not hear

00:16:39 --> 00:16:41

anything from the

00:16:42 --> 00:16:51

from the celebrities. And it is kind of conditions that we talked about for the Sahaba are not true for in the case of the domain and also their

00:16:52 --> 00:17:09

their Adana or their integrity has not been proven from the Quran and Sunnah in the same way, that Adela or the integrity of the Sahaba has been proven from the Quran and Sunnah. So therefore, many scholars are of the opinion that their statements are not pejorative, and also

00:17:11 --> 00:17:19

famous statements talking about the domain some people have lied to the Sahaba. He was not talking about the Sahaba in the rain, when he said that they are men and women.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:24

But and many of them will society also

00:17:26 --> 00:17:29

say that any their statements should be accepted.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:40

And their argument is that they learn to steal from the Sahaba. And especially in some of their cases, they took most of the Sahaba for example, Mujahid

00:17:41 --> 00:17:42

which I had was the students of whom

00:17:45 --> 00:17:54

would ya had said that he read the Quran the complete Quran within about three times, stopping after each verse to ask him about me.

00:17:55 --> 00:18:07

So any Mujahid makes a statement. In fact, I think, I don't remember who I think you remember, Chevy, one of the latest scholars said that if you have to see it from what you had, that the sufficient

00:18:08 --> 00:18:13

don't need to go to go for also another another one of the submarine.

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


00:18:18 --> 00:18:43

he said that there's not one verse in the Quran, except that I have heard something about it. And in other words, I've heard some statement from some Sahaba explaining its meaning. So therefore, because of this kind of reason, that in fact, it did take most much of their proceeds from the from the other, most of the most notable person who based on reports, will quote them and will give them any very strong thoughts.

00:18:46 --> 00:19:00

But the final conclusion, made possible by the heavy hammer was seen as a hobby was even taymiyah shot by another people is that in fact, any their statements are not considered what you like.

00:19:02 --> 00:19:15

And we should look to them. Obviously, if we want to make the cheer, we should consider their position, their place the knowledge and who they got the knowledge from. But at the same time in general, the school is mentioned there.

00:19:17 --> 00:19:20

there any their statements are not considered legit.

00:19:21 --> 00:19:26

Unless of course there's if they agree on a point or principle, obviously then,

00:19:27 --> 00:19:32

of course, that's not because it comes from Mr. Rain, but it's because this is not

00:19:34 --> 00:19:36

the consensus.

00:19:39 --> 00:19:41

With respect to your first question, sir.

00:19:45 --> 00:19:58

If for example, the state didn't know, anything clear in the Quran about the meaning of the verse, no Hadees nothing from nothing from Sahaba. We have the statement from one of the devayne or two lists of agency

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

and then we have another

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

Opposite statement from people of later generations who are in the next generation, for example. And someone nowadays comes along and says that the statement of the FBI is wrong. And the statement of the Iranian people of the next generation is correct.

00:20:15 --> 00:20:18

And as we said, the statement of the submarine or not.

00:20:19 --> 00:20:31

So if he can bring some evidence to show and he did the pivot domain were right. And he was wrong, there's nothing wrong and he This is not considered strange, necessarily, or something objectionable.

00:20:32 --> 00:20:53

Now, if he should come with something new that no one has ever stated, before someone nowadays comes to the facility. This contradicts what the civilians did. And what therefore the officer didn't after the civilian also said, and he This is implying that the Quran means something. And all of the Muslims before this time didn't know it. In other words, there's some there's some truth

00:20:54 --> 00:20:58

of the Quran a meaning of the Quran that was unknown to all of the Muslims.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:08

Well, this is impossible for for that kind of thing to have ended up with escaped the Muslim Ummah, as a whole.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:17

So far, we have talked about four sources of deceit

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

and fraud.

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


00:21:26 --> 00:21:28

we said the first three,

00:21:29 --> 00:21:32

and what we mean by that, basically, the first three are legit, meaning any

00:21:33 --> 00:21:39

other people cannot come along and contradict. You cannot make it to tears of wrong which contradicts the Quran.

00:21:41 --> 00:21:50

somewhere up here, I gave an example of that simply, just remember the words of Allah give it the fear of the Quran? And is it contradict how the problem has been explained?

00:21:51 --> 00:22:04

Or the contradicts those aspects of the other way we remember we divided the Sahaba into entities and their relationships of students to seven categories. This is some of them are Joe, we didn't see him.

00:22:06 --> 00:22:14

So any little things cannot be touched. Now we come to the next sources, and then we said the 17 or not. So

00:22:17 --> 00:22:19

now we come to the next source the

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

Arabic language.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:31

Well, this is a rather long topic, probably will. We'll talk about it today. And we will continue next time inshallah.

00:22:34 --> 00:22:36

Any The best thing about this topic now,

00:22:37 --> 00:22:42

obviously, I'm not a scholar in this area. So if you have any questions, I will let

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


00:22:46 --> 00:22:48

Let me begin. And it is

00:22:49 --> 00:23:07

an Arabic language. And besides the principles associated, which we're going to talk about later and related to Arabic language, and it is, there's a stronger relationship between Arabic language and getting the meaning of the font than what is sometimes given or sometimes realized, especially by Arabs themselves, and also many times by now,

00:23:08 --> 00:23:12

let me begin by reading a statement by Mohammed Rashid

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


00:23:18 --> 00:23:25

He came to Colorado A few years ago, he was the lecture at this park. And he's living in Houston.

00:23:27 --> 00:23:31

Well, he wrote, anyone who does not know Arabic,

00:23:32 --> 00:23:34

does not know his name.

00:23:36 --> 00:23:46

I said frankly, even though during this time, there are many non Arab Muslims and even Arab Muslims who say that Arabic is not essential for knowing that this statement is false.

00:23:47 --> 00:23:53

And as we showed earlier on in his article, whoever does not know Arabic, does not know the Quran.

00:23:55 --> 00:23:57

Before we continue, are there any comments on the student

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

statements and might be a little harsh?

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

Might be?

00:24:05 --> 00:24:10

Well, of course on the first one here should be offended. But have minute seconds.

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

But any, it contains a lot of truth to any of you wants to say that for someone to really know it. And if you were to if we would have said the only really noise no more no. Islamia, in essence,

00:24:25 --> 00:24:31

probably then you could agree with him more. And in fact, Jen, if you look in the history of Islam,

00:24:32 --> 00:24:41

and in most of the innovation, most of the data, and most of the beliefs can either draw against Islam were introduced into Islam by whom

00:24:43 --> 00:24:46

they were mostly introduced into Islam by non Arabs.

00:24:48 --> 00:24:49

And the reason for that

00:24:51 --> 00:24:52

and it is more than one reason for that.

00:24:54 --> 00:24:59

And there are some reasons for that, that have nothing to do with the Arabic language. And if for example, when some people entered in this

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

them, and they wanted to keep some of their old beliefs.

00:25:04 --> 00:25:12

So they try to incorporate that into into, into Islam sometimes by forging headings and so forth. But again, even more so than that, and if you read

00:25:14 --> 00:25:16

modern writers on the science of

00:25:18 --> 00:25:24

ruminating, not sure how to pronounce the word, you should know this, from genetics,

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

from genetics is the science of how language conveys meaning.

00:25:30 --> 00:25:33

Well, you should realize that any language

00:25:35 --> 00:25:43

does not just convey meaning in the sense of words have specific meanings, but also language convey most of the

00:25:44 --> 00:25:55

ways. And it is the relationship between language in ways and what is important language and so forth. And in a way, one thing is greatly affected by the nature of languages.

00:25:57 --> 00:26:00

And this can be clearly seen, in the case of Arabic,

00:26:02 --> 00:26:10

when compared to other languages, especially Greek. And the the language that has the most damaging effects on Islam

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

was what

00:26:12 --> 00:26:16

was Greek, and because people, and it's another lecture,

00:26:17 --> 00:26:25

and it is started to read the Greek books, translate them into Arabic and so forth. And any they try to bring some Greek concepts into Islam.

00:26:28 --> 00:26:35

In the same article, he argues that the Arabic language, and is the is the language that is closer

00:26:36 --> 00:26:37

to the nature of mankind, or is the

00:26:39 --> 00:26:47

and he says this, this is the case with respect to Arabic more than any other known language. And there are some basic differences between Arabic and Greek.

00:26:48 --> 00:26:55

And Arabic, the stress is on the meaning of words and things and what differentiates one thing from another.

00:26:56 --> 00:27:01

In Arabic, the stress is on the on the man and the the meaning of

00:27:02 --> 00:27:45

what is this thing? And how does this thing differ from something else. And this is Yanni the this is an aspect of the Arabic language, the Arabic language and itself, far beyond the other language. Well, I'll give you an example of that, we'll stop the tape because I'm not going to translate this. But to give you an example of how the Arabic language is any stresses, differences between things, Danny identifies things, as this thing is this and this thing is something else. And it stresses differences between this way of thinking. And he This is found in the language is different from the way of the Greek language. And in the Arabic, the stress is on meaning and how to differentiate

00:27:45 --> 00:27:55

between things. And as, as I'll show this, two paragraphs, this is different from the stress that is found in the Greek letter.

00:27:57 --> 00:28:04

This is from from the lv sakalava, pages 9799 to 99. Don't ask me which edition

00:28:07 --> 00:28:11

and it is the point, I hope everyone understood the point behind

00:28:12 --> 00:28:15

the aspect of the Arabic language any 23 different ways of looking

00:28:16 --> 00:28:40

before glasses, and 23 different ways of looking at it, because this is something that the Arabic language stress, defining thing in the sense of telling you what it is, and how it differentiates from something else, making the Greek language was not as interested in the minor the meaning of things as in what

00:28:45 --> 00:29:16

they were looking for any the essence, or the substance of things, the nature of things, I mean, this was the any language was built around that not simply defining different things, but trying to determine the nature of things was any determined the essence and nature of things was this is any an aspect of the language which of course leads basically any with respect to many things, the only one who really knows the essence and nature of things is Allah subhanaw taala. So it leads them

00:29:17 --> 00:29:25

Sophie's studies if you compare the Greek in the Arabic language, in the Arabic language, and you will find, for example, as I said, 23 different

00:29:26 --> 00:29:58

ways of describing different looks. The Greek language wasn't interested in knowing that there's different looks and give a word for each different, what the language concentrated on what is the essence of look? And what is the nature of how does it look happening? So you won't find lots of discussion and lots of words in the language dealing with different ways of looking, but you'll find lots of discussion, and lots of words concerning the different natures of things. Well, if we go for example to the Quran, we see that the Quran journey follows this Arabic

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


00:30:00 --> 00:30:13

With respect to many things, a lot of what data doesn't tell us about the essence of the nature of this, for example, about the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, or, and also the essence of will listen to me with that and his name about

00:30:15 --> 00:30:17

any spirit or,

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

or any in Malaysia or gin. Let's head on with that it doesn't talk about the nature of the C

00:30:25 --> 00:30:35

and E book unless the haddaway data just describes themselves it will notice when the Jews came to the Burnham to kill him and asked him about raw, what was almost without his response.

00:30:39 --> 00:30:42

Like any they asked you about the roof, tell them this

00:30:44 --> 00:30:48

is me from the command of my Lord and

00:30:50 --> 00:31:01

Yanni Look, you've been given a knowledge actually very little. And it because the essence of things wasn't something considered important in the Arabic language. And in fact, as I said, it is actually beyond

00:31:02 --> 00:31:09

our ability, and much of the, of the innovation, much of the mistakes, much of the division.

00:31:10 --> 00:31:18

And much of the disputes that occurred in Islamic history occurred because of the difference between Greek language and Arabic.

00:31:20 --> 00:31:35

Plenty occurred basically for two reasons. Number one is the difference between these two languages. In other words, the difference between the meanings of things and significance of things. And the essence. And ignorance has some basis related also to the Arabic language. And sometimes these were combined,

00:31:36 --> 00:31:37

for example,

00:31:39 --> 00:31:43

and with respect to the, to the attributes of Allah Penwith as

00:31:45 --> 00:31:46


00:31:47 --> 00:31:47

for example.

00:31:49 --> 00:31:56

And it was never the case of the Sahaba of the sahaabah asking, what is the nature or how,

00:31:58 --> 00:32:22

because any this actually in the frame of mind, even if wasn't important to them, as the statements of Arabia and also in America, something no one, they know what it is. And they weren't concerned with the essence and the nature of, but when people begin to get influenced by the Greek philosophy, then they wanted to know what is the essence of nature.

00:32:23 --> 00:32:25

And then they came up with

00:32:26 --> 00:32:42

different groups and then came up with two different conclusions about whether or not we can accept this kind of ad and so forth. But the basic causes that is the fail to different differentiate, or notice the difference between any knowing the meaning of something and knowing the essence of something

00:32:43 --> 00:32:45

was another example.

00:32:46 --> 00:32:48

An example no related to

00:32:49 --> 00:32:52

any ignorance with respect to the Arabic language that also lists many

00:32:56 --> 00:33:00

divisions and sections in the Muslim world

00:33:01 --> 00:33:04

is with respect to for example, seen a lesson plan with dad.

00:33:06 --> 00:33:08

And it seemed almost unheard of with dad and here

00:33:10 --> 00:33:22

was, this is the what led to this. And he is both again, the nature of team as opposed to simply knowing that you will, and also also and it's related to the Arabic language

00:33:24 --> 00:33:26

with respect to the verse

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

within Nadira

00:33:30 --> 00:33:31


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

in the Arabic language,

00:33:36 --> 00:33:40

and some people say, what is this example? Some of them? How do they explain to

00:33:41 --> 00:34:05

some of the some of them, they interpret this verse Yanni not that they will be looking forward to the Lord. This is actually the meaning of the group, but any as wicked and this interpretation, and he shows the importance of the Arabic language and making it because this interpretation is completely incorrect from the Arabic language point of view. Why is it incorrect from there?

00:34:06 --> 00:34:10

So, one thing is no one there's no way

00:34:12 --> 00:34:22

the word wait in Arabic could be to be constructed in this manner, but that's not the only reason. And because the word Mother, mother are looking

00:34:23 --> 00:34:29

and it is used in different is used in different ways. If it is used with the preposition, ILA,

00:34:30 --> 00:34:47

and another looking healer This means looking, this is the only word that is used with the preposition Illa or to something, it means looking to or looking at the only and in the cloud we have different meanings. If it is used without

00:34:48 --> 00:34:52

us without the preposition and the hold on even no promises to me.

00:34:55 --> 00:34:56

It means to wait

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

one verse in the Quran.

00:35:03 --> 00:35:05

In this verse and in the 13,

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


00:35:08 --> 00:35:09


00:35:10 --> 00:35:16

as my point did if it's used without the preposition to use without the preposition that means to wait.

00:35:17 --> 00:35:19

As in this verse is going through right now.

00:35:22 --> 00:35:26

And the meaning of the important part versus the only way for us so that we may

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

take we're both unlikely. Now if it is used if the verb, the word another is used with the word key,

00:35:36 --> 00:35:37

what does it mean?

00:35:38 --> 00:35:52

And if it's used without a preposition, it means in the Arabic language and in the Quran, it means to wait if it is used with Tila as in this verse, and he means to look near the language and in the Quran was it is used with the with

00:35:55 --> 00:35:59

us use any word Gee, it means to think about something to ponder about something.

00:36:01 --> 00:36:24

So any the from the Arabic language itself we know that the word another depending on how it's used when it's used by itself was used with the word Isla, or was he was the word see has different meanings? Well, this is part of the importance of knowing Arabic language. And when you're interpreting the Quran, and this is a good any one of the reasons why some people in the past have

00:36:26 --> 00:36:30

misinterpreted verses in the Quran because of mistakes with respect to

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

principles of the Arabic language. Well, listen, Hello dad, I mentioned in the Quran.

00:36:38 --> 00:36:42

How many how many places that the Quran is revealed in Arabic language in Arabic,

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


00:36:45 --> 00:36:46

11 played

00:36:49 --> 00:37:01

in 11, places in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala, as mentioned that the Quran has been revealed in the Arabic language and in Lanza know, for an Albion la Lu, Lu,

00:37:03 --> 00:37:08

barely we have sent it down as an Arabic put on, in order to do that you may understand?

00:37:09 --> 00:37:12

Well, furthermore, as we know, during the time of the problem,

00:37:13 --> 00:37:29

when the Quran put the challenge to the coupon, to present a surah, similar in its nature to the to the Quran. And we also know from that, that it is the best, the most eloquent, the most proper Arabic language.

00:37:30 --> 00:37:47

Well, even some, some scholars, for example, even better, he stated that the the eloquence and the extra language of the Christ, and among the Arabs, the Arabs, the best languages among the poorest. This is one of the reasons why I listen to what data goes to be

00:37:48 --> 00:37:50

from among the poorest.

00:37:51 --> 00:37:58

So this applies, as we've been stating, or as we've been leading up to this, any anyone who attempts to interpret the Quran

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

to give any meaning to the Quran was useful.

00:38:03 --> 00:38:13

And in order for him to do so he must be knowledgeable of the Arabic language. If he's not knowledgeable, the Arabic language obviously is not qualified to typical Quran.

00:38:14 --> 00:38:28

You know, medic said yeah, and if anyone who does not know you will be able to language guide to interpret the book of Allah, and it will only make of him an exemplary punishment. And in other words, it will, almost kind of with data would punish that person.

00:38:29 --> 00:38:33

When we get a student that is an adverse, that

00:38:34 --> 00:38:43

it is not permissible for anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day to speak about the book of Allah, if he's not knowledgeable of the dialect, or acts

00:38:44 --> 00:38:45

of the earth.

00:38:47 --> 00:38:48


00:38:51 --> 00:38:52

in fact, we can say

00:38:53 --> 00:39:16

any the relationship between Muslims and the Quran is strongly related to their command and their understanding of the Arabic language. And if I talked earlier about sciences, hermetic, and modern, Herman, Herman, efficient, and they stress here is what they call the word.

00:39:17 --> 00:39:23

And the word event or the language event is how, how the, how a speech can affect you.

00:39:24 --> 00:39:58

Well, if we go to the Sahaba, we see how greatly they were affected by the Quran. And one of the reasons that they were greatly affected by the law is because of their understanding of the Quran as their understanding of the Arabic lens and they understood the Quran in depth and much greater than most Arabs today, for example, or or non Arabs today could possibly understand. So therefore the Quran and Gene the different aspects of the Quran in different facets of the Quran. And the Quran had a much stronger effect on them. And it because of their knowledge of the Arabic language than it does

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

If you have two people, one of them knows the Quran by heart. And he knows lots of promises. But he doesn't, he's not very strong in the Arabic language. And another one knows the Quran by heart. And he knows he knows the Hadees and promises to them. But he strongly Arabic language and you use the principles of the Arabic language when reading the Quran. And he This person will have an understanding of the blog, which is much deeper

00:40:24 --> 00:40:26

than what the previous person will have.

00:40:27 --> 00:40:44

any impact on your relationship to the Quran is strongly related to our understanding our ability to use and understand the the Arabic language for this aspect. You only have to learn Muslims close developers to realize this as

00:40:45 --> 00:40:48

well, unfortunately, also, the compiler also realizes that

00:40:50 --> 00:41:30

and in one of the reasons why they want to do away any, especially in this past century, there's more than one movement. We tried to do away with classical Arabic. And have everybody said learn local Arabic or even try to change some of the rules of the Arabic language. Well, the reason that and if you look at if you study these moments, those figures behind it, almost always it is Christian Arabs, who are the founders of those moments supported by the system clean and non Muslim oriented. And the basic reason behind it, anyone can see clearly is because they understand the strong relationship between having a strong understanding of Arabic language and being affected and

00:41:30 --> 00:41:32

understanding the playing field.

00:41:33 --> 00:41:37

And it is a very strong relationship, and each other will perhaps bring up

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

some examples. First, we'll bring up some examples of

00:41:44 --> 00:41:54

any danger. First, we'll bring up some examples of the danger of not understanding Arabic properly, when it comes to you. And then gela would be some examples of

00:41:55 --> 00:42:04

the benefit that comes when you do understand properly. One, one last point, before we move to that must be understood

00:42:06 --> 00:42:13

is that the Quran was revealed in the Arabic language of the problem Hamza Silliman

00:42:16 --> 00:42:30

has Allah subhana wa tada says, Roma at a fundamental Sunni in Lebanon be listening for me. And in this, it was revealed in the Arabic language at the time of the problem haematoxylin And of the people of that time.

00:42:31 --> 00:43:05

Some people object to this. And someone wrote in one of his books that he did the Arabic language that you have to know or that we have to use to interpret the Quran and Sunnah is the language of the sin of meaning, and is the language of the Sahaba. And it's amazing what they passed on as the proper Arabic language. And that is correct. stamens correct. And is the Arabic language of the Quran. And it is the Arabic language of the promises of languages in Kampala, because of the Quran. Because the Quran the Arabic language hasn't changed.

00:43:06 --> 00:43:16

And it because of because of the study of the Quran and the importance of the always played in the Muslim world. But all languages change all languages, even the Arabic language has changed.

00:43:17 --> 00:43:25

And when we want to make the shear we have to keep this point in mind. And if for example, there are some additional bonuses, Dylan,

00:43:27 --> 00:43:29

actually don't even make them.

00:43:31 --> 00:43:40

Really, when you think about them, they don't make sense when understood, in the ways the same terms are used to be. well enough was the word. What is the what is

00:43:44 --> 00:43:46

What does the word mean in the language of the problem?

00:43:52 --> 00:43:58

Nowadays, is used as letter during times of constant filament meant to complete work.

00:43:59 --> 00:44:04

That's why the head even pro system when he said I don't stay out of my meme is part of what they say.

00:44:05 --> 00:44:05


00:44:06 --> 00:44:22

then part of a movement. And he is saying that the media actually was worded this time, what he's saying when you receive 10% of reach out of the thing is not even the word, which is how they understood it is anybody I mean even a consultant will tell him, tell him I mean,

00:44:25 --> 00:44:25


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

it means work. During the time and process determine meant a complete sense.

00:44:32 --> 00:44:38

Deliver means the completion journey, people talk about getting that they refer to a lot of elements.

00:44:40 --> 00:44:43

And you look at some translations and head up anyone refers to

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

translate kalamos word will lay the words in a word.

00:44:50 --> 00:44:55

And because the word kalama this time, met menston not words. Can you use a minor

00:44:56 --> 00:44:58

example more important example.

00:45:01 --> 00:45:04

This one brother, put in a book he recently wrote,

00:45:06 --> 00:45:09

is the word rude.

00:45:11 --> 00:45:12

And he's sort of the guru.

00:45:13 --> 00:45:14

What's the meaning of the word

00:45:19 --> 00:45:23

original originally meant simply the shapes of the stars.

00:45:24 --> 00:45:26

And the different forms of

00:45:27 --> 00:45:29

the stars, shapes that you can recognize.

00:45:31 --> 00:45:39

Later on, anyone just again, Greek scientists, and everything came to the Muslim world.

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

What did the word roads become?

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

roads became, to me, the star constellation,

00:45:50 --> 00:45:58

which have of course, specific meanings in Greek. And each star constellation has as the meaning to the significance to, some of them are gods.

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

But more importantly, is to have the translations of the Quran into English

00:46:06 --> 00:46:10

have talked about, sort of, for example, use the valley for

00:46:11 --> 00:46:17

the zodiac sign, zodiac sign, these are the Greek, the Greek sign.

00:46:19 --> 00:46:20

Now, this might not seem

00:46:22 --> 00:46:34

very important at first, is actually very important. This is not the correct route. But unfortunately, based on this, the Muslim especially in the United States, things that they say that astrology is not

00:46:40 --> 00:46:42

the point to any growth.

00:46:44 --> 00:46:58

And you mentioned them and so therefore any of the ways is mentioned in the blog. And it means that Allah Subhana, WA, tada is pointing out these things to us. And therefore responding out to these things, listen, but that's important. And of course, important, the only important that they have

00:47:01 --> 00:47:11

any small mistake, not a small mistake, a mistake like that, in a transaction, or in a satirical example, could actually lead to very large, very big

00:47:13 --> 00:47:14


00:47:15 --> 00:47:16

deviations, for example?

00:47:17 --> 00:47:19

Well, I think probably this might be,

00:47:22 --> 00:47:23

this might be a good time.

00:47:27 --> 00:47:33

Okay. I'm sorry, if I didn't make this point. Clear. The difference between

00:47:34 --> 00:47:41

the Arabic language just interested in me and the Greek language. Interesting.

00:47:42 --> 00:47:55

Yeah, are the essence of things for example, as I said, with respect to looking to look in the Arabic language, you find like 23 different ways of looking one, just being distinguished by the other, despite its slightly different things.

00:47:56 --> 00:48:16

But if you look in the Greek language, you won't find a big discussion or big terminology about different ways of looking but you'll find there's a long discussion about what is the essence or the nature of looking? Is it with the eyes? Or is it with the heart? Or is it with the mind? Or is it in the mind and the heart? Or is it with the mind in the eyes and so forth? That's the kind of discussion that you find

00:48:17 --> 00:48:26

in the Greek language. And this is the kind of thing that when the Greek language in the Greek literature entered into the Muslim lands that the Muslims themselves begin to

00:48:27 --> 00:48:33
