00:01:19--> 00:01:21

Brothers and sisters in Islam

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

at a certain time,

00:01:27--> 00:01:30

the West, meaning Europe at the time,

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

they started sending

00:01:37--> 00:01:39

bright, intelligent, smart

00:01:41--> 00:01:48

students, to the Islamic universities to learn Islam thoroughly.

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

Not to become Muslims.

00:01:54--> 00:01:58

No. So that these students

00:01:59--> 00:02:03

may find flaws in the religion

00:02:05--> 00:02:10

and they can use them in the missionary work

00:02:11--> 00:02:25

to spread these misconceptions amongst the Muslims themselves in the Muslim world, so that they make them doubt Islam.

00:02:27--> 00:02:32

This is what the historians call

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

mustache Rypien mustache,

00:02:37--> 00:02:44

the English terminology, orientalist. He's an orientalist.

00:02:45--> 00:02:50

And you will be surprised to find out that a lot of them accepted Islam.

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

Of course, one of the

00:02:56--> 00:03:00

issues where they would have a very hard time

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

to attack

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

is the Quran

00:03:07--> 00:03:19

because the Quran, quite frankly is one of a kind, the only book which survived almost 1500 years

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

being untouched.

00:03:25--> 00:03:28

So they go after the time

00:03:30--> 00:03:35

before the Quran was finally compiled.

00:03:37--> 00:03:38

And they dig deep

00:03:39--> 00:03:46

in this particular theory, and that's what they teach in these universities.

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

You know, when you when you when you go and get a PhD from

00:03:52--> 00:04:04

American University, for example, like Harvard like he'll, these orientalist are the people who teach you there. And this is the stuff they teach you. I'm using the Quran as an example.

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

So anybody who goes to these universities,

00:04:10--> 00:04:13

even if he's the most pious, the most

00:04:14--> 00:04:43

you know, having a teacher especially if you have an extended study their PhD for example, you will be influenced by what you hear. And this is brothers and sisters in Islam the Why you are not supposed to even the presence in a facility of an area where there is cuff, there is ship or people messing around with the Quran.

00:04:44--> 00:04:50

wickedness Allah Allah filty Tabby and Eva Samia tomb area delay you for a

00:04:51--> 00:04:54

while you will be here for taco

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

hut. a foodie fee had eaten v

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

nakum Egan with loom. Allah revealed abou and this is in Surah Nisa that when you find a gathering where they make fun of the Quran of Allah, they are doubting it. Don't sit with them because you will be like them. For imagine we're talking about a setting a gathering, Nara for five years program, what do you spend with those people for

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

the subject of

00:05:34--> 00:05:37

the preservation of the Quran?

00:05:38--> 00:06:12

brothers and sisters in Islam to begin with? We'll call the Al Rahim Allah mentioned in a book called Shiva, the consensus each map and when you hear the word edge map, stop, it's the third source of evidence that we have in our Sharia especially is now who the consensus of who not the Muslims now HML Sahaba.

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

We believe companions as individuals, they could make mistakes, but as a Gemma, no.

00:06:24--> 00:06:36

So if they agree that this is the most half, then this is the most half. That is why it says anyone who question that if he's a Muslim, he goes out of the fold of Islam.

00:06:37--> 00:06:58

But again, you have to be careful. We didn't point fingers. We call this the unrestricted. we're addressing the issue itself. Anyone who realized one letter from the Quran or question, the authenticity of the Quran, goes out of the field of Islam. I didn't say who

00:06:59--> 00:07:15

did I I didn't fully to say who you bring him and say brother, Salaam Alaikum. I am a brother in Islam, I love you ally. But this is bad. This is wrong. You can say that because 1234 you have to establish an evidence against the individual.

00:07:16--> 00:07:18

In the seven minutes I still have here.

00:07:20--> 00:07:24

Here is the history of how the Quran was compiled

00:07:25--> 00:07:33

during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we know for a reason Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was illiterate.

00:07:34--> 00:07:37

And some Muslims would shy away from saying that.

00:07:38--> 00:07:42

Actually, it's a mark of honor.

00:07:43--> 00:08:29

Because the fact that you're illiterate that means you did not consume the cultures around you because you can't read. So who taught you? Allah subhanho wa Taala so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would memorize the verse, we know that the Quran was revealed in 23 years and two months, completely. Brothers the Quran broke down one time, all of it from the preserved tablet, the low helmet food to the lower heaven. These do not grab the light now best long time because the Quran was in the preserve tablet, falafel mfu. Because Allah spoke the Quran A long time ago.

00:08:31--> 00:08:47

Bro down one time, then 23 years back and forth 23 years and two months. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would receive the verse, he would stand up, and he would recite it to his companions.

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

Whoever is present they used to memorize it. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had designated scribes designated names of the companions up to 35 their job is to write down the Quran.

00:09:10--> 00:09:23

Whoever is present not all the 35 are present at the same time. Whoever is present your job write it down he would actually point yeah, as I write this off, man is one of them right this

00:09:27--> 00:09:38

one did they used to write it on? Of course they didn't have papers. They didn't have computers. They have no books. They have destroyed and skin of animal

00:09:40--> 00:09:43

bones and other materials that they could.

00:09:45--> 00:09:54

That is why brothers and sisters in Islam then mean form or mood of preservation of the Quran was the memory

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

was the Liberty the memorization of the Quran. But a complete

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

meant writing

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

for you, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away.

00:10:07--> 00:10:19

The Quran was left in writing and in memory, but with one thing here, not collected in one book.

00:10:20--> 00:10:32

So it was these pieces of materials where it used to be written, was still with the individuals the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam designated to write during his life.

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

We know

00:10:37--> 00:10:52

a worker became hollyford Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and some Muslims started to apostate, the famous Masai lemma and all of that to none. Just few months

00:10:53--> 00:11:12

after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam there was a battle in Ileana a province in the Arabia. The Muslims were fighting the army of Musa Elena. In this battle, a lot of the people who used to memorize the Quran were killed.

00:11:13--> 00:11:31

Number 70 is a reflection of how many but it's not really accurate because when oma came back to aboubaker he said yalitza Rasulullah laka desta Harwell kutlu Fie half of Attila peran fetchmail Koran.

00:11:33--> 00:11:37

A lot of the people who memorize the Quran passed away were killed in this battle.

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

So gather the Quran.

00:11:41--> 00:11:53

Abu Bakr initially did not want to do that. He said how I'm going to do something Rasulullah did not do.

00:11:54--> 00:12:01

Omar kept asking him over and over until he finally agreed.

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

Brothers and sisters in Islam

00:12:06--> 00:12:23

are bobak chose one of the people who used to write the Quran during the time of Rasulullah. And he was very special one he was knowing his name is Zaid ignaz. habit. One.

00:12:25--> 00:12:42

He given him that responsibility. Yes. You're responsible for gathering the Quran from the Hebrew and combine it in one book. Zayed was hesitant he he said no, you know, it's a big responsibility.

00:12:44--> 00:12:53

What did they do? He went and he gathered all the people who are still alive from the time of the prophet who used to write the Quran with him.

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

And he formed a committee.

00:12:58--> 00:13:06

Okay, here's how we're going to do it. Every verse, each verse, we must have two witnesses memorizing it,

00:13:08--> 00:13:12

and written in two places. Not just one.

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

Can you imagine that?

00:13:16--> 00:13:27

One of the Christians these days, this guy's You know, he picked on this Muslim brother who was going after the Quran. You know, it's upon a lot.

00:13:29--> 00:13:36

You remember I said two months after? Do you know when the first Bible was compiled?

00:13:37--> 00:13:44

The Bible 70 years after Prophet Isa was raised up 70 years.

00:13:47--> 00:13:51

And to be fair, maybe Matthew 40, but 40 to 70.

00:13:52--> 00:14:05

And I told you, who is the guy who compiled data who did the work, that I can give you seven names of his lineage right now? Is it fair because of the hurricane? Matthew, who's Matthew? Matthew, who's Matthew, Matthew?

00:14:06--> 00:14:10

Luke, who's Luke, Luke, ooh, what is that? What is the full name of Luke?

00:14:11--> 00:14:13

If you actually look at the literature,

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

the people who used to write the Koran during the Prophet

00:14:21--> 00:14:29

gather the Quran now became the Quran one book, consensus Sahaba nobody said no.

00:14:32--> 00:14:41

Here's where this brother is confused and he got tickled and he got triggered and this is where the interests got to him.

00:14:43--> 00:14:44

The subject of

00:14:45--> 00:14:54

attention here brothers and sisters in Islam, you should feel jealous for your deen for your religion for your Koran.

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

You should defend you should be able to defend brothers and sisters

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

In Islam, the Arabs at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to speak Arabic.

00:15:08--> 00:15:11

But like now, exactly like now,

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

there is a Moroccan Arabic.

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

There is an Algerian Arabic.

00:15:20--> 00:15:28

There is a Tunisian Arabic. There is a Libyan Arabic. There is an Egyptian Arabic. There is a Palestinian.

00:15:30--> 00:15:42

It's one language but different deals, go to Morocco, with all due respect and try to speak Arabic, you won't understand anything. It's the speaker, by the way. And by the way, some of the vocabularies they used, it's true.

00:15:43--> 00:15:55

But it just deletes likewise at the time of the Prophet. These tribes, these spoke different dialects, they could not understand one another. Exactly like now.

00:15:58--> 00:15:59

I'll give you an example.

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

The letter Ha,

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

ha.

00:16:05--> 00:16:15

Some tribes would not understand it. It doesn't exist in their alphabet, even though they spoke speak Arabi goblets, tablets, let's use the little Ha.

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

Had he

00:16:20--> 00:16:23

had the means and kill him in a while.

00:16:24--> 00:16:27

That tribe cannot say that hey, you know how they say

00:16:31--> 00:16:35

it's the same thing. It's like the southern the southern English.

00:16:40--> 00:16:43

British English, American English.

00:16:45--> 00:16:57

Type How did this subject of the elect came about? jabril Allah His Salah when he came to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam? And he said he has he breathed

00:16:58--> 00:17:00

in mi

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

fi modules and he wanted to live

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

in my own mother is that old man who doesn't know how to read or write?

00:17:11--> 00:17:36

Can you please ask Allah to reveal the Quran in their dialect so they understand it that shows you brothers and sisters in Islam, the significance that the Prophet wanted us to understand the Quran, not just mama mama mama, know, to understand it, he wanted the Arabs to understand the Quran, because they weren't the initial recipient of the revelation

00:17:37--> 00:17:45

and wanted them to come together to unite them. And the only way is by understanding the book,

00:17:46--> 00:18:04

and you cannot understand it if it is not in your language. When our Sona was ruling in Belize, and he told me he lives in Allah, we have not sent the messenger bot was the tongue of the people at the time.

00:18:06--> 00:18:12

He kept asking jabril until the number seven seven dealings different dialects.

00:18:14--> 00:18:23

Some of these dialects like now, you know Moroccan and the gyptian and all of that dealings is that people would feel weird about the brother in his thing us.

00:18:25--> 00:18:26

Yeah, he was on

00:18:28--> 00:18:36

top one day he was praying behind a companion by the name of his sham. It no hacking it No, he's

00:18:38--> 00:18:38

Hmm.

00:18:40--> 00:18:41

recited

00:18:44--> 00:18:45

in a certain dialect.

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

Omar was in the line behind him. Omar.

00:18:50--> 00:19:03

Omar said I was about to jump on him on the Salah method this. He decided in a way. Omar said I'm about to grab him in the salon. The man is about to grab the man. He couldn't.

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

But I kept myself but after the salon, he still grabbed him from here. Come What is this? And he went to the broth. colossal.

00:19:17--> 00:19:30

What's wrong Yama. He decided the Quran wrong. So he said he shall sit down he shall recite. Omar This is how gibreel decided to me. Omar recite this is how gibreel decided to me

00:19:32--> 00:19:33

the elected the time.

00:19:35--> 00:19:42

But now brothers and sisters in Islam. What was the most famous deal at the time

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

was the death of Christ.

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

It's exactly now and you know, I'm not saying this because I'm an Egyptian. But every Arab understands the Egyptian dialect not because they are no because of the movies because of the bellydancing because at one time, Egypt was

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

The source of TV

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

you know, TV stuff so every Arab would watch Egyptian television. That's why the Egyptian dialect is easy for them to grow. Likewise Mecca defied the dialect of Christ. Why? Because Christ was the place where they used to go to to perform hajj and umrah.

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

Rice was the place where they used to to go to trade, in competitions in language. So, I would imagine and all these competition it used to be in the village, so that was the dialect at the time.

00:20:35--> 00:20:47

So in any rate, the purpose or the objective behind the Quran being revealed in seven different dialects served its goal. All the Arabia became Muslims.

00:20:48--> 00:20:53

Allah said to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Your mission is complete.

00:20:56--> 00:20:57

What I

00:20:59--> 00:21:07

like best understood the surah he said, Now you Rasulullah the Prophet, and had said to the oma go and convey

00:21:08--> 00:21:35

so now we got in so far to the most half in the house of Abu Bakr, Casa de la viola, one who, after the death of amvoc, was moved to the house of Omar Allahu anhu. After the death of oma, it was kept with hafsa, the daughter of the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during the time of man of the Allah one.

00:21:37--> 00:21:41

A companion by the name of a familiar man during the time of man.

00:21:44--> 00:21:46

And today is a very special

00:21:48--> 00:21:59

he used to say that companions used to ask the Prophet sallallahu wasallam about good things I used to ask about the shotgun will fit in

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

your rasulillah he asked about the bad things so to avoid it. So he was playing like Roma in one of the Gemma has in a country called Ruby gem, all the way in Russia see what Islam went to.

00:22:14--> 00:22:15

So the mom lived the Salah.

00:22:16--> 00:22:27

he recited in accordance to a certain dialect. The people behind him started fighting with him after the Salah, the Muslims started fighting because of that they elect

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

how they fought on a week to

00:22:32--> 00:22:34

travel back off man.

00:22:35--> 00:22:38

And he said, You better

00:22:39--> 00:22:44

resolve this matter. standarized Nick, one standard recitation.

00:22:46--> 00:22:52

Otherwise, the Muslims will differ upon the book, the way the Jews and the Christians different.

00:22:54--> 00:23:01

You remember the name of a man called Who? Who zeytinburnu therapy, the scene man.

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

The same man.

00:23:07--> 00:23:21

You gather the Quran during our walk. Now, come on, let's make one standard recitation. And we're gonna use the language of price if we disagreed, because this is the most popular

00:23:22--> 00:23:52

side again, gathered everybody who's still alive. Let's stand the rise, the recitation and one was huff was produced. That is why we call it the most awful of money. That's why we call it that Manny must have right here. That's what we have right now. That's how it was preserved in writing. Yet it was preserved brothers and sisters in Islam in memory all the time.

00:23:55--> 00:24:06

This is how the Quran was compiled in national Zen vichara we're in LA who the half of

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

you know how many

00:24:10--> 00:24:15

articles of confirmation in this small sentence? Five,

00:24:16--> 00:24:17

five

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

I revealed it and I will preserve it. And this is how it was preserved.

00:24:38--> 00:24:49

Alhamdulillah Allah Al Ameen la humble Hassan was Santa will Jamil shadow Allah Allah illallah wa sallahu la sharika your poodle haka

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

Mohammed, Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa early he was hired. He was worried he had

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

Meaning, one Amanita mbsfn in Isla de three groups, brothers and sisters in Islam who normally attacked the Quran from that window from that video.

00:25:17--> 00:25:20

First the Christians and quite frankly, this is a compliment.

00:25:21--> 00:25:22

Why?

00:25:23--> 00:25:27

You see if I am as a Muslim speak about the Bible

00:25:28--> 00:25:37

and whether it was preserved or not. Am I entitled to do that? I'm sorry, because I believe in the Bible.

00:25:38--> 00:25:41

Of course, the original form of the Bible,

00:25:42--> 00:25:53

the authentic form of the Bible, I believe in if I am to speak about prophet Esaias, salat wa salam, I'm entitled to do that, because I believe he was a messenger of Allah.

00:25:55--> 00:26:28

But when a Christian speaks of the Quran, come on, you don't believe that Muhammad Rasul Allah to begin with. A Christian doesn't believe that a Jew doesn't believe that. They don't believe that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. So you're actually so that's accomplished. Now you accepted that he's a messenger of Allah and you're discussing commandlets The second group brothers and sisters in Islam, normally Shia, Shia, often the extreme Shia ziana Let's use the term here. Why? Because they don't admit the leadership of Abu Bakr.

00:26:30--> 00:26:37

And that is when the Quran was initially gathered in one book, and they don't admit the leadership of Hoffman.

00:26:38--> 00:26:50

So any work they do, they discredit, including the Quran, and normally they come with the notion that the Quran

00:26:51--> 00:26:56

the preserved Quran was a melody with the they have the theory that they have out there.

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

But the sad part

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

when you and and that shows you brothers and sisters in Islam, that we need to develop our own education system, when a brother who's a Muslim,

00:27:11--> 00:27:23

who actually authored books on the authenticity of the Quran comes out and he speaks about skepticism, being skeptical. You know, because he, he said, you know, if deep

00:27:24--> 00:28:04

dive deep in what matters like these are matters of certainty, matters of certainty. We call it the Athenian. You're not supposed to entertain doubts about it. Because you believe in it. in Malmo, Milan, alladhina, amanu belaire who are surely from Yo, boo, indeed, the believers are those who believe in Allah and His Messenger, not just believe that they existed, exist and the messenger Was there no, and they believe in whatever they said they believe in the Quran.
