In the last
basically what I want to do is just give some
general points about the tip.
And then intelligence tests.
One of the famous foundations of the front English is a valid translation. And also if we have time also the
transition and some of the
points concerning these two, these two works.
First of all, we should realize that theater is one of the most important sciences in Islam. Because it's through through the fear that we learn what Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, and we understand what Allah subhana wa tada desires from us.
So because of this reason, the Allah has discussed the fear in great detail and have discussed many of the principles concerning to fear.
Allah put on says
him to get let him know the ins and outs
while I'm here.
And it brings me to the one who has revealed to his slave, the book.
And it's like no, any crookedness
there in any meetings, it's the book The Quran is something clear for the most part.
And another verse, Allah Subhana, WA tada says, the opening of Pokhara and Islam mean that they will arrive at the Quran in the copy.
And if that means
that is the book in which there is no doubt, guidance for those who are aware of a loss and kind of data.
But even though we have this book, and the book is clear,
impossible for us to be honest, like, even though we have the book and we read the book, it's still possible for us to be misled.
And that's basically through two ways.
Number one, if we try to interpret the book of Allah Subhana data without knowledge,
and we read the Quran, and we give the fonts and meaning when we don't actually have the proper
requirements to give them or to explain the Koran. And this is very dangerous, and one of the ways that we may be misled. Now there's a number of Hadith of the Profit System.
So they don't have anyone surface to put on according to his opinion.
Right, then he shall take a seat in the Hellfire and these things have these kinds of meaning. All of these headings are weak, they are not authentic. But still if we looked at the Sahaba
we look at how they look to the Quran, we see that they were very careful when it came to giving any meaning to any verse in the Quran.
of a doctor for example, the first halifa
said that any what earth will give me a place to live and what sky was in the shade. If I should say something about the Quran, Yanni by my opinion or something that he does not know for sure is correct. So stating the Quran is not something simple, something very important but at the same time it has to meet
certain correct characteristics and if we have posted the Quran, without the requisite knowledge, it's very easy for us to get the wrong conclusions from.
For example, there's a verse in the Quran that says the
need to add in Medina abdominal weiming those folic hasi do not want females that I know many that's all flammable, flammable, solid hi to Mexico, while I'm in Mexico last.
How much to handle with data and this verse?
Basically what the meaning of the verse is that there's no blame upon those people who believe and do good deeds
concerning what they eat, or what they drink.
As long as they are aware of Allah subhanaw taala and they believe in the good good deeds and they are aware of Allah subhana wa tada and believe, and then we're gonna dive into good.
Well, if we look at this verse, and we're not familiar with how to interpret the Quran is one of the early actually one of the early scholars, or one of the early personalities in Islam. When he read this verse, he said, he concluded that alcohol is hot.
And because the verse says that for those people who believe there's no sin upon them, concerning whatever they eat,
whatever they do,
so this man when he read this verse,
So therefore, alcohol is has.
And there's nothing wrong with
the mistake he made is that he didn't follow the proper steps and to see if he didn't look at the circumstances behind the verse.
Or in other words, you didn't have the proper knowledge to interpret this, this verse, this verse was revealed, after the prohibition of alcohol.
And some of the Muslims, they were worried about both the haba who died before alcohol was prohibited.
So they asked us to process it. And what about these people who died and they were drinking alcohol. So much data revealed this verse concerning them, that there's no sin upon them for what they drink, as long as they were horrible, doesn't come with that and believe and dig deep.
So without the proper background, without the proper knowledge, it's very easy for us to get to this guidance, even though we have a cron and we and we know what is the playbook. Once an hour
he called with nothing together. And yet, even I've done
the prophets I send them a draft
with Allah would increase his knowledge and his understanding of the Quran.
Here, even I've been helping to do this, and Muslims have one Prophet, one book and one camera, and they will fight each other.
They will differ and they will fight each other.
So there's an adverse incident,
you said that you and I read the Quran
and we know concerning what it was revealed. So therefore, we both understand it and we both know what it means. But there will come a people who will read the Quran and they will not know concerning what has been revealed. And therefore they will interpreted according to their opinions.
And when they interpret it according to the opinions then they will differ and when they differ, they will fight each other.
So even though we have this Quran, which is a clear
Book from Allah subhana wa Tada.
So if we don't have the proper knowledge, the proper tools to interpret it, and we may still be misguided, even though we have this book. And the second way of being misguided, even though we still we have the Quran is if we approach the Koran
with certain preset notions.
And we have our beliefs already. And then we go through the Quran we try to prove I believe from
when the history of Islam this, this happened on a number of occasions, the Shia, for example.
This year, for example, they take the verse and allow multiple mentors,
that Allah subhanaw taala has already viewed to slaughter the cow. They say he is
that this is a this is a command.
They say the towel. And this verse means he doesn't have a dinosaur during the fall. It's up to them to slaughter it according to the Shere Khan. And because they have their belief, and they just tried to go to the Quran, or to try to go to the head and prove their beliefs from the Quran from the head. And this is, as I said, unfortunately common amongst all actually
all of the groups that are not following the way of the prophets and send them all of them tried to go to the Quran and prove their beliefs from the Quran, even though in fact it leaves them consistent with the Quran.
To take another example
maybe more intricate.
The Abril COVID mata Zilla
they do not believe in the intercession of the province that
there is a hurry
in which the province has been said
that my intercession for our intercede for Africa via
our intercede for those people who committed the great
paladins defeat for them and they will be taken out of the Hellfire and taken to
the monastery that they don't believe in just they believe that if you commit great things, and you're an unbeliever or you'll be an unbeliever and you'll be in Hellfire
so they say What's the meaning of this eddie's is above a system that delves into deeper and divides. The ordinary
sadness divided are those people who pray and have patience.
Because Allah subhana wa tada says in the book at all was dying or discovery was the law. When Allah Kabira formula for shame
that there was patients in prayer and it is a big thing less severe soon.
Except for those people who are humbled and he they completely
ignored the good proven principles of Arabic language, and said the gospel is provided as referring to this
to this verse. So if we approach the font with our own ideas already sent instead of letting the Quran and the sooner the processing and give us our data, this is another way this would be a mistake, even though we have to put it in front of
the sort of exam have clearly stated what are the principles? Or what are the basics of the field.
The fact Allah subhana wa tada Hold on.
There's the universe to mine nadina Diana,
I'll let them in with God This thing is upon us to explain the Quran.
Referring to all of
it is upon us to explain the Quran other words Allah subhanho wa Taala did not reveal the Quran and leave the explanation open to anyone who comes to the Quran.
Also, this means that the meaning of the Quran is one
many people including Yusuf Ali and Mohammed,
they claim that they believe in the kind of progressive
the fear that over the years, the meaning of the Quran changes according to our understanding of life as abilities if it says in his introduction to his interactions with translation, that he says in spiritual matters. He believes in the kind of progression of understanding why this works and approximately gnarly Nevada makes it clear that the meaning of the Quran is one I'll let them handle it out as explained.
And he has given the meaning actually, and that meaning doesn't change over time. You cannot say that the meaning of the province has been understood this verse to mean this. But in fact today means to me, this is something that you find amongst the Christian.
This is completely alien to the spirits of
the lessons for each generation from abroad might be different.
So that's lessons are related to the circumstances but the meaning is one. The meaning doesn't change.
What the principles of the Quran, I'm going to proceed
as far as if you want to explain the verse, we should go through the Quran.
Because the Quran is one book and one revelation. And as some of the orlimar say this is like one,
one statement for one thing,
and no part contradict. Each part explains the record.
So the first thing he wants to do if we want to find the meaning of a verse, we go to the Quran itself.
For example, Allah subhana wa Tada. In
fact, he has
read in the surah
go out and live you levina and I'm dying to
guide us to the straight path The path of those who you have blessed. We have graced with your favorite
but who are those people who are left behind with data?
Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Quran and another verse, sort of nyda Allah subhana wa tada explains who these people are.
Let's begin with data. This is made up of well what resource so like Mr. Medina and I'm alone
in the bean, what's the difference for Shahada, Allah, he
can explain to us who those people are whom he is. And the other verse by saying that whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, God with those people whom Allah subhana wa Tada, bless, from the profits
from the defeat are the sincere
and the martyrs and dishonor hainault the righteous. So when we say identify that often will stop him pull out the Levine and I'm telling him, we're asking God for guidance through the path of the prophets,
of the pain of the martyrs of the thought of him. So one verse explains the other verse of the Quran. And there's many examples of that. For example,
in one verse, Allah subhana wa tada it says that Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed certain words to Adam
and Hannah without it for forgiveness with almost no data. And that verse doesn't say what those were done. But in another soda, I'll look at data data to drive us inspired.
So the first principle is that we take the Quran, we want to understand any verse, we first tried to understand it in the life of God the verses of the Quran.
And what this means also is that if anyone interprets the Quran,
if anyone interprets one verse of the Quran in such a way that
it contradicts another verse of the Quran. Obviously that kind of proceeds must be rejected.
the second sort of the spirit of the Quran is the sin of Apostasy.
In fact, that's what's part of his job to explain the Quran Allah. Allah says some ln gallina, Dianna, he's including me the fact that you sent the province as part of the province I sent him a job was to explain, as Allah Subhana Allah says, when they look at they need to be you need to be human enough to manipulating this we have revealed into the record, or has been offering, Save As soon as the public says, in order to explain and to maintain what has been revealed to them.
What is the public sector showed us for example, how to pray. Allah subhanaw taala orders us in the Quran to service the slot from Priscilla. But nowhere there's almost no data
to show us exactly how the first be performed.
And how many other guys what do we see in the different positions? What position close does it position, this is only to be found in the center of the public system.
As soon as is the actual implementation of the Quran. So who wants to see how
the Quran is meant to be understood? how Allah subhanaw taala meant the Quran to be understood or what's the meaning of the Quran. And all that kind without as that is the second thing we do, we looked at some of the buffer systems.
And as many verses in the Quran also, then we can see that the father did not understand them properly, until they went through the provinces in them and explained
as the verses is
in the dynamic, no one will.
in this verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala is describing those people who believe
and they do not mix the belief with any don't,
or don't have many meanings. And if we just
if we want it to make sense to go to the Quran, and we come to this verse, and it has many meanings that we can get from the word boom, why even the Sahaba misunderstood this verse?
Because they said, Who doesn't do something wrong? And
even though he's a believer, he does some sort of publicizing them has to explain to them
that the meaning of this verse is should I mean, the meaning of the word Gorman does versus should, and who doesn't mix his belief with shook.
So therefore, the Sahaba, even though they were experts in Arabic language, they did not get the proper meaning of this verse.
What this implies is that, in order to get the proper meaning, is not sufficient even to be expert in the Arabic language, which we have to go through the synonyms of prophets. That's
one of the terrain he came to
And he asked me what I thought
about the firm the traveler.
He said that
why do we pray to God when traveling instead of for when we're in a period of 50 because the Quran and the verse in the Quran describing
the traveling the prayer while traveling has the condition and many of you fear the enemy, then you may shorten your birth.
So this devil he understood that if we don't fear any enemy, then we cannot shorten the fair welcome. So yeah.
that I had the same feeling, I had the same understanding. So I went to the pharmacist and the Minister and the pharmacist and and said, this is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala rocked up you have to accept this gift.
So again, what this implies is that even an excellent command of Arabic language is not sufficient to make the film you have to refer to the Son of the Father.
And as it did, this was one of the roles or one of the jobs in the province I send them to explain the Quran in the way that Allah subhana wa Tada, which words to the students. And one of the reasons for many people making mistakes in the future is that they neglect to look to the soon as the Prophet says in him and how he explained the Quran.
For example, Allah subhana wa Taala says,
in the Koran levena no Hostnet was yet
for those people who do ask those who do good but that will say those who do good and he they will get good in return. And something in addition,
is one of those.
Many people who wrote in the Quran who doesn't like to talk too much to the center of the profit center.
This is the purpose I tell them explain this verse very clearly.
He said that the Ziad has something in the vision is that Allah subhana wa Taala will remove the job, or the veil in front of him and the believers, and in the hereafter they will see all of that.
But mohammadreza doesn't believe that anyone can see all of our data. So therefore, he seems to put on with preconceived notions, as I mentioned earlier. And when I let them run with that, and this verse says was yetta, instead of picking what the public has said, I'm explaining the meaning to be, he simply said that they will get good, it's something more than they deserve.
And in other words, you refuse to, to interpret the Quran in the way that the public has sent them.
And the third principle
of explaining the plant, besides the other verses of Quran, besides the sin of the promises, and then looking through the basics, or the basis of the
Arabic language, and its rules, because Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly states in the Quran, that this, this Quran has been revealed in Arabic language. So therefore the rules Jonny of the senses, the grammar, the structure, even the vocabulary is based on the Arabic language, we try to interpret the Quran. And unfortunately, many, many Americans do this, but not intentionally, inshallah. They read the translation of the Quran, and they get the meaning from the, from the translation. And that meaning is completely inconsistent with the actual Arabic of the, of the of the Quran.
In addition to that, also, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, that every messenger has an incense with the tongue of his people.
So what that means also is that the
Quran is not only an Arabic, but it has been revealed and the big Arabic of the time of the Prophet.
So in other words, if there's a word that has a meaning during the time of the politician, and later meanings change,
then it's founded on the meaning of the meaning from the time of the process, and it's not the new meaning accumulated.
and I was trying to think of before the talk for,
for an example, which is less trivial than this one, but I could not think of it so I'll give this example anyway, the word the killing the
word killing right now, if you ask almost any,
almost any error, with the meaning of the word killing, they'll tell you mean words.
And the words are meaningless.
But actually, during the time of the politician, you're telling them in complete sentence.
This is why the shadow Knight and Allah told you this,
a good sentence not worse.
This is why the prophets I send them when he said you will receive 10 rewards for each part of the Quran.
It's a great word to put on. But then he explained it instead, I don't mean I mean, his second
So the meaning of these two words have changed over time. So when we come to it in the Quran, we don't take the rate of meaning we have to fly early,
or the meaning of it is from the time of the policy.
And one of by the way of the important aspects of the Arabic language is that every Arabic word has, we can call
a basic meaning.
And then it might have other meanings, which are less common or less usual, and the Arabic language.
So according to their big language that every word has, were supposed to understand every word according to its basic meanings. And there's some evidence to explain it, to understand it some other way. Metal works for example, unless a man without its faults put on about
the throne of Allah somehow.
The meaning of autist in the Arabic language is clear.
So therefore, when talking about the meaning of the Koran, we cannot go from that word, and give it some other meaning, which in fact, is not related to like thing is power or his authority, and it doesn't have to be.
This is known as the way in which is an acceptable type of Scripture for the biblical scholars.
Before getting to abilities to bodies
there's another verse in the Quran, which I would like to mention and discuss
a little bit. And that's the verse in the Quran in which I looked at the calluses.
Olivier de la Conchita Lin who is
the author of mata shabbiha.
this this verse in the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada
is saying that the there's two types of verses
that are the ones which are clear.
And then I'll listen I like that it continues in that verse
feminine living, Latina people who've been vegan for its own America shop
a week, when I got into law,
four, so it can be read also on my
this performance data is dividing, as I said, the worst run into two tests collect one watershed.
And he said that those people who have the disease in their heart, they go after and look to shatter behind,
make some fitness trying to make some
differences amongst the people and trying to get real meaning. And then I left man with data says, but no one knows its real meaning except Allah.
And those people have knowledge they say we believe in all of it from our Lord. But this verse can also be read, that no one knows his meaning except Allah. And those people have knowledge, who say we believe in all and it both readings are correct. But they have different meanings depending on how you
first of all, what we get from this verse is that most of the fraud is not the shell.
And most most of the verses in the Quran are clear.
Mohammed effort in His deity claims and most of the Quran
most of the Quran is open to interpretation, and we give a different meanings over time. And this is not true. According to this.
This verse in the Quran, also shall be had something could be more suitable to one score, while it is clear to another score.
And it is actually a relative term. If someone finds a meaningful example in the sun, no, it's clear from the Arabic language to him, then the verses no longer with the shadow, while to another scholar it might be.
Finally, with respect to the last part
that we really love law would have to put up again, if we mean
the fear of diversity, what diverse means. And yet the people of knowledge know what the verse means. If we mean the actual
demand without it talks about gender.
If we mean do we actually know what Jimena is exactly how it will look, and how we'll feel it and so forth. This is called the wheel of reverse. And this of course, only a left hand without a nose right now we do not know.
So that's according to the second reason,
what is clear according to all of
the logic that are the miracles of the prophets, the prophets hiding them, they are not from the official.
Mohammed has said he claims that any miracles stated in the Koran
is from the most disturbing act and he tries to give some interpretations
of habitat for example, the people of the cave who set for 300 years. And he This is completely unacceptable 200,000 So, he said this is a group of Jewish scholars that went to the mountains to study and they lived there with their families and they they lived the generation after generation for 300 years, before the people found out about
with respect to
the birds, who protected MIKTA from the, from the elephants. Also he said this was like smallpox or something. And he tries to give some, some explanation with respect to I think that's sufficient. They did that according to all the olema the setup of their disposal plan, they are not from the militia. In other words, they mean what they say. And it is miracles actually were performed by the will and by the rule of Allah.
Also it is its effect or the is reversed is referring to almost no data and its attributes are
Also not from the pathetic. And once in another sense, of course there are because I'm listening and with that innocence.
There's nothing like almost 100. That's
what somebody else will see, whenever I listen without his any one of his attributes. We know what it means, but we cannot say what this exact
word when Allah subhanaw taala says here, we know what curing means. But we cannot say exactly how Allah, Allah here.
This is the reason I brought this verse up is because as many people claim that many verses of the Quran I want to show the heck
inconsistent with how the publicist and I'm extremely put on. And it's completely inconsistent with every cleanse, but we have to be familiar with what they do. And he has
to cleanse the most of the Puranas with each other
Foundation, he can interpret the following in almost any way he wishes.
At the turn of the century, unfortunately,
especially in Egypt and other parts of the Muslim world.
They're greatly influenced by and really the great immoral that the scientific civilization of Europe.
And so therefore, they begin to
some of the scholars, and by the way, their intention, and he went off talking about their intention, because their intention was to
was to defend this now.
One of the scholars who, who brought about secularism, although he didn't meet them in Europe, was a man by the name of
Kant was a firm believer in God.
But he said that the rules of the hereafter are there. I mean, the rules of dentine are the logic of the unseen doesn't apply to the logic of this world. He taught he's defending Christianity. But in fact, what you did pretty much led to the destruction of Christianity. So the same thing with respect to these scholars, like Mohammed, Abu, and human beings have run roughshod
over trying to defend it, because what they're doing is defending what he did was wrong.
There's no question what they did was wrong, or what they did was wrong, we have to reject what they said. But at the same time, we do not have to continue to condemn the person who talks about his intention. Their intention was to defend Islam. So when they were so when they so admired the western civilization, scientific civilization, they begin to interpret the font in very materialistic way.
as I alluded to earlier,
they begin to
they begin to deny all of them or deserts or all the miracles in the Quran, they begin to deny most of the supplies that are left behind without it mentioned
in the Quran, and they begin to interpret the Quran, almost
not as the Quran is supposed to be interpreted that as the western as Europe, interpreted in terms really, of European society.
But unfortunately, I believe the valley is one of the people who was affected by that movement. And in his field, as many places we see that he has made some mistakes and sometimes mistakes were what
we hope almost man with data, forgive the layers of value for his mistakes, and rewards him for the service to the to this wisdom, but at the same time, we should not ignore the mistakes you made. So I've written down some of the just some,
some of the points from his fear,
some of the footnotes
and footnote 44, for example,
if the body is under the belief, and he stated clearly in different places, and it appears that there's no such thing actually as heaven and hell, but there are just state of mind
any hell, Heaven is a place where you just feel Felicity in your mind, and Hell is a place where you just feel tortured in your mind. He doesn't actually believe
in heaven and hell as places where there'll be resurrection, and the old man time will be resurrected body and soul and they will live in this new existence, images and footnote 44 of his commentary and in many different places. Obviously if we go back to the three principles or the three tools used to use us to make this here,
the Quran itself as soon as the province has determined the Arabic language and it is obviously contradicts all three of them. It says the Quran is clear about heaven and hell. As soon as our the private system is clear, and also the Arabic language if we go to the Quran and it is clear
With respect to a belief to the shutdown in general,
and also how invested in his fear and his dependence, he has the same
kind of thing with respect to a belief.
He says in footnote 52 that he believes is the power of evil.
He believes in it says something like the evil conscious and then he does not believe in a creator, created by Allah subhana wa tada as easily.
He believes is some kind of evil power, evil conscience, or justice someone does something wrong, then we say this is related to this place. In fact, there's no such thing as even when we go to the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala ordered angels to bow down to,
to Adam, and among the people who were commanded to bow down to Adam with the belief that he refused,
and even said,
so this kind of interpretation goes clearly against the fraud. And yeah, how is it the power supposedly picked some kind of power of evil, when almost no data clearly stated, as a kind of special creature.
In footnote 168,
we get a very clear example of where below us the value is ignoring the front of the public system.
And this is a footnote to verse which is talking about all the mankind has to pass over the fire
all of mankind with us over the fire.
what the Bible says in them explain this as the path over to hellfire. And for some people, they will go quickly, and for other people that will struggle.
That's the problem. Second, and clearly explain the meaning of this verse, and have to qualify for them said something, we cannot go to something. But you can use the value refuse to follow what the poet says And instead, and he calls it the fire of repentance.
There's nowhere in the Quran or in any or even in the Arabic language in the Quran. There's nowhere anything such as a fire written.
And he says all this mess must pass through the fire within.
And because he's not willing to look to the center of the public system to see what his head is what this verse really means. He has to come up with some strange
with respect to also the story of Ibrahim, the prophet Abraham.
The story in which all of us have had with data so listen with data, how do we recreate the day the last man with data told him to pick
up some words and put them on hills and then call them and they'll come to him? As I said, this is one of the modules so miracles explain in the Quran.
Of course, use dividing footnotes,
and putting the three oils to the body completely denies as any miracle to this.
I mean, he said the birds were not killed and they were not.
They did not come back to Abraham that way. And of course, if the birds were not killed, and loved brought back to life, there's no meaning to this verse whatsoever to zebra a masked man without showing how he recreates the dead.
And an elephant hammered down his building to do this while according to
the latest Valley, he did not do it.
So he has meaning. And it clearly contradicts the earlier verses of the Quran in the same passage.
Also with respect to some of the
points that he makes in the future also.
For example, He says war is only in self defense is putting a tool for wars only in self defense. While we know he's talking about jihad, by the way, he's not talking about war. orangette are not the same thing. We don't have anything. This is war, and he's done.
But we know that Jihad
jihad is not just self defense, but the sermon. jihad is meant to spread the love of Allah subhana wa tada and the Lord will bless men with data throughout the earth.
There's a non Muslim country that does not allow us to spread the love unless man with data regardless of whether they attacked us or not, we have to make sure how to get
the war. So get and not just in self defense, but as I said use the body came from a certain period
certain period of time which that is many of the Muslims were trying to almost make the qualities for them and tried to show that Islam is not as some people claim. And therefore Unfortunately, this was this influence has gone through in the Quran.
In footnote 324 he talks about Riba
according to the the Arabic
according to the Arabic definition of the of the of the word Riba
Which means I can affect any increase any addition to the capital. There's only one way that Riba could be translated into English. And that is that interest is not usury. Riba is not used. usury means an exorbitant amount of interest, a very large very high interest rate compared to what the market can bear.
What do you have as any kind of interest does not use any kind,
of course of all he gently usury, which is a mistake. But in his commentary to this verse,
He said this, well, you know, things change over time and people interpret the Quran according to their time. Actually, this is the word clear in the Arabic language. And then he says that Riba no Quran is not the same thing, which is the creation of the modern banking system, was the saying that the interest that the bank charged is not the same thing. So you may take loans and what they were,
by the way, all of these so far, just from sort of,
just from sort of locking I didn't have time to go, haven't called me just a few minutes before I left.
I was just about to leave to the airport when he called to tell me I had two extra talks. And I had to gather my notes together. All these are from sources. I just mentioned one more.
And that's the footnote 929 which he talks about the jinn
anything said the jinn are the hidden qualities or capacities in men.
Well, this is interesting because the Quran says was put on the deposit system, called the prophet SAW, Selim did a group of the jinn listen to the Quran.
COVID just listened to the choir. And he says the use of it sometimes you can print the whole Quran, if you
can, if you're going to translate jinn as the hidden qualities or capacities of men. And what do these other verses mean? To say that the group of jinn listen to the Quran? And of course, all of the edits?
Well, those are some of the points from from Abdullah used to file his translation and come to me.
And for many years scholars have talked about
revising this translation.
Well, there was a committee in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, made up of about 30 olema
jabesh. Grace was one of them.
And he was one of them.
What their job was to revise use the budget transition?
Well, they didn't get very far. Because the NBC lab, they had about 12 different opinions about what should be considered.
Dr. Jani discussing the bangus Miller for about three or four days, the whole project kind of fell apart. But nonetheless, they have been recently amount of publications, or the amount of publications they have published the Revised Edition.
Well used to by the as many.
Unfortunately, it's still one of the best translations in any written portion.
But there's many, many mistakes in the valley is
the fear of commentary. And unfortunately, the Revised Edition was not able to get rid of all of these mistakes. For example, many of the footnotes that I mentioned, some of them, they deleted them completely.
Others, they did not quite delete them. And some they just left alone. So the Revised Edition is far greater, far better, much better than the old edition.
And he did delete a lot of stuff that should have been deleted. But it's still very far from from perfect. And as I said, you need to remove everything from use of it, which is questionable, when, in fact, the great, great work I mentioned.
Muhammad Asad disappeared quite a few times, because
it's also gaining popularity. And I mentioned some of the mistakes
that he made. He is kind of like a modern day.
It's really nice to see that.
As a group, you all know that existed in the history of Islam. And they have certain they have their five principles and so on. And his principles, his students, basically according to their, their brief, I talked about how he denies all the miracles mentioned. He also denies all of the positive attributes of Allah subhanaw taala in his appendix to the Quran, and as the appendix to his translation, he says, we cannot say anything about the lesson and without except what he's not.
He's not imperfect. He's not this. He's not that
some sort of before. I'm glad to see him
had the same way of thinking, even reach such a extreme that they even said he is not in existence. And he is not not in existence
is not modulated is not nothing.
So what what he's doing basically is all of those
verses nuprime the statement attributes of ultimate data, like he is nice
and easy, this is the super thing that we cannot say.
So, I don't know even how they pray when they say that I mean, that must mean nothing to them. You think we can only say what all this without
using imperfect? Isn't it completely isn't this isn't that.
And finally, just one last point about Mohammed. So
I don't know how long he wanted me to speak on it. But I hope and
what I hope I've spoken long enough.
One last point about Mohammed defeated
me there's many things also we could say about this
cemetery, which is
his notes sort of ignore the verse concerning the dress of the women.
He does something very nice
to his argument is that the dress of the women is should be modest. And modesty is
something that changes over time.
That was during the time of the Prophet system, and that was one thing, but nowadays it is something completely different. So nowhere does it take what exactly the dresses woman is supposed to be according to
according to the law, but it is also another nice thing that footnote equals nerdier scholar
who said this man with data commands the women to cover what they should be covered except what he permits them more or accept what
may be uncovered, again without loss of modesty.
So he takes this quote from subtitles a bit by him, I'm drowsy.
And the problem is you take just after
he said the any of the the quotes, as he stated, this woman may uncover or the woman has to cover whatever is deemed necessary by customs.
And he just leaves an event. But if you go to
the COVID score, he quoted, says and that that the woman man cover, quote, unquote, on his face, and
he leaves that part out. And he says discounting according to Preston, and then he argues as well, just in terms of time. And of course for those people who do not have the potential to be able to the big to fear not that many people have it, especially those people who don't believe it, I don't think they would have it for any reason.
And he knows you make the kind of delete or deception in the note. And he does this on a few other occasions also in court. And so it's tough, it's very dangerous for them. And he leads you to believe that what he's saying is what some of the earlier scholars said while in fact if you studied closer, he is misinterpreting or misquoting with the full theory scores. Michelle on that point will end and perhaps open the floor for questions.
I said it's much, much better than the old one. But still, there's some there's some bugs.
if you see some bugs
or any any
essential to me,
Well, I don't have any.
I don't think it's necessary for us to keep working on the same transaction.
I need to keep revising up dilutes the value. Well if we do that, then we'll end up with nothing
and inshallah we might provide some alternative

He told me it's very good.
I promise to send me a copy to look, look over. So maybe inshallah there be some new ones coming up
no matter what the scale is.
Yeah, personally, I don't care. I don't care. I think he,
you know, the Quran is tough enough to translate the way it is. But he, he just loses the meaning of the Quran sometimes. I mean,
he tries to make it to almost slang almost
doesn't make it to modern English. But sometimes, sometimes you need a difficult word or, or old words to really convey what's going on. The thing is, it's not everything can be broken down into simple words or modern terms

with his arms. So what do you think of just read the verse again? That's
so great, by the way, your? What's the meaning of? Exactly?
You know, the Arabic language and a word, as you said, might have different meanings.
So, not all Assamese cannot grasp them.
But what is the meaning? grasp them? So?
Could you just elaborate?
First of all, we're saying that if we see all this data, and the year after this, we'll see all there is drama.
This is not what we're saying.
And this is I think you missed what this is. Okay, we'll get again, I said this if we if we say that we'll be given the pleasure of seeing Allah subhanaw taala in the hereafter. That doesn't mean the same thing is that we would be able to hang with our sight encompass all the third form of habitat, which is what the verse implies. Well, that's still true any according to my interpretation, but according to the word upside, the eyes of the vision you did in such in that one?
I agree with you. I mean, you know, I think

Need to interpret the Colonia go to the Sooners.
Once I was reading some heady, and someone told him that what you're saying is contradicted by the Quran and the
Bible. And his answer was the Prophet of Allah knows the Quran better than you know, better than anyone knows. One lithology I don't have to discuss it because already in the word for it to break and his reputation is good.
I'm hearing you will I feel that, you know more out of it than they're eating?
Very well. And I want to advise for that.
To avoid media and basically attempt to incite them to read it and understand it not just

For me, you don't have to take
this for you, by the way, after we finish this.
And I think
if you really want to understand
in reading the Quran,
I think if you really have the desire to understand what it means
through translation, or to read it without understanding the meaning if you really have that desire, and it just will drive you through, I think learn everything you need to know.
To be able to understand in general, you don't have to understand detail. In many areas they don't understand in detail, I want to point the finger here.
Can you still you will, you'll understand what is going on with what is being said?
Well, if you realize the importance of Arabic, and understanding the Quran and understanding the eddies and also if you realize the importance in Arabic in reading good literature, and English
If you have an English isn't much, you can read it
within a year.
Just sit down and read most of what we have in English. And also the quote is not like
someone also wants to go beyond that to really learn about Islam,
he will be forced or need to appeal to need to do. So if you're talking about you.
Talking about your children, you should
fill them with the feeling that if they really wants to understand what Golan really wants to understand he listens to them, that they want to understand
and respect the good books on every single or every support on

One last question
was actually lesson four in British English. And I was wondering if you could refer us to a translation which was for an American audience is an American fine English
This is the one you had referred to and you said this has some
redundancy, English. I think the first American version of the phone or even the name I can't
really put up with me right?
He doesn't really give you the message he
picks on English very readable.
There the one by
remember can translate by himself or with someone else. I think this is very readable but there's lots of safety here years and lots of grammatical mistakes. But it's very readable.
Unfortunately, right now, we don't really have good, good
translations. I mean,
we're just talking about the text of the Quran.
also a arbors transition to some examples of good
information. He tried to capture some of the beauties.
That was already
I guess I have another question but I'll be late. And we'll start at this point unless you have a
some some verses because like, many verses much better than anyone else, but again, he and his footnotes are cool. So you cannot give that translation to anyone. Unless you're gonna over and recorded more than I guess at least satisficing more than six or seven problems with mistakes in it and just unselect the record.
The demand was 13 so you have to be very cautious in dealing with this customer frustration.
I'd like to thank all of you for attending tonight's program.
I hope inshallah, learn something out of it. And we'll see you all tomorrow. Before you leave. Make sure you get the dessert and Sharma to find out a little more
