Meaning of Quraan, Soorah & Ayah
Okay Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam O Allah say the more saline Muhammad Anwar the early he was on his mind. The next subject is the language of the Quran.
And as we said, for the universal principles, these lessons will be recorded and uploaded to the Student Services section in the miaa website, and the password is from memory, Mia students 2015 or one word. in there, you'll have access to recordings and other material don't give out that password please to any anyone else. It's only meant for you as miaa college students, otherwise it defeats the purpose of having a Student Services section. Otherwise, we're going to have to either change your password and get email everyone else and some people might, it's just a big hassle. So and this is an Amana. So just like I'm located and for that I'm sure you all do the right thing. Now just
just a friendly reminder. As for the language of the Quran, the objective of this subject is literally to understand the language, the words of the Quran, word by word, break it down, not going to translations, we're going to focus on what it means in Arabic. And it's going to give you a totally different perspective and a new experience when you pray. And you experienced when you read the SWOT and we're going to start with the Fatiha Of course 17 times that is recited. So it's only appropriate that we start with that. And of course, it's called Al Fatiha. Right. It's an it's literally like the introduction. It's the opener to the revelation. And then just because I'm of
course you find most of the Muslims around the world have memorized that desert and the sewer are quite short. And a lot of people recite these shortsword especially when they're in a hurry. All right, Bismillahirrahmanirrahim Aloha, Aloha, aloha summit, sometimes I didn't even finish the surah called hola had Allahu Akbar. Right. So because we understand this reality, unfortunately, the sad reality, where we're going to start with the short sword First, we're going to start from the back. So for those who end up dropping out, laid off due to pressing needs or whatever, then at least you've got and you've understood the short sword, but this subject will go for year and a half like
the universal principles you have. So by the end of that, you understand inshallah from Al Fatiha. Okay. And we'll go to the last visit, you understand from sort of the nasty sort of never every word. And I'm not going to give you translations Otherwise, why come to this course you'll just sit at home and read the translation. But as you saw earlier, there's much more meanings to words than just a translation.
Yes, no, no, what I mean, good question. What I mean is, I'm not going to just give you the simple translation, Al hamdu, lillahi, rabbil, alameen, All praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. But that's actually there's a lot of things that they missed out, I'm not going to give you a straight translation from the translations of the Messiah. I'm going to speak in English, but I'm going to go deeper into the Arabic to to show you that the eloquence in the beauty and the deeper meanings of those words, like we did in the previous lesson.
So and those who do Sharia with me will know that these types of lessons I write the objectives and the top left hand side of the board, to make things clear and to
you know, basically when we have goals and you see those goals, and you achieve them, then you have this sense of accomplishment. So the objectives and goals of today's lesson is we're going to look at the meanings.
So is the oval Fatiha is very important terminology, we must define a note the meanings of the words.
Number one, and what does that mean? Then we're going to look at the meaning of the word surah.
commonly translated as chapter and the meaning of the word
commonly translated as verse, and you're going to see shortly it means much more than this, much more than this. But as students of knowledge, right yourself, students of knowledge, your understanding of Islam is not like the layman.
You have 1.8 billion Muslims around the world who say Bismillah R Rahman Rahim on a daily basis, if you would ask them, what does that mean? A lot of them won't know. Or if they do know, they'll just give you the translation that they've read from the top of their minds. But ask them why is that? Bismillah? What's the big the bad? I don't know. What does Allah mean, God? No, it means more than this. What does the man mean? The Most Beneficent asked Muslims around the world, what has beneficent mean? I don't know. What does beneficent mean,
a lot of people don't know, at least the Most Merciful is that a better translation? So you know, when you understand these words, inshallah, it'll give you a different experience, but also, it'll help you as students of knowledge progress in your Arabic studies in specific and Islamic Studies in general.
Let's start with the word Quran.
Now you cannot put an like this with a double A or one eight doesn't really matter. It's English at the end of the day.
The most important is the Arabic
there's many meanings for the word Quran just like we took in universal principles. big words come from small words. What's the small word? Cora. Good,
Cora. And what was the first I revealed? Cora echo the first word revealed if caught up. Cora, what does that mean?
to read and recite good Cora means to read and recite
because the Quran is recited a recital, it's a citation.
So in the name sub panel is a description of how you deal with this book.
And the proof is in the Quran, the proof is in the Quran.
This word could end is called the master, the source word of Cora, right you have all words in Arabic, they have to come back to a source, just like water. You have all these bottles of water, you have tanks of water, gallons of water or factories of water. It all comes back to a source right the spring. So that's called the mustard where would originate from, and that's what a lot of Adam Allison and he taught him. He taught him the origin of words, the massada where I met Adam and Aquila, a lot to Adam all the names they taught him names, not verbs You see, first and foremost he taught him names as Smith, Bradley madama. And a smart he told him a smart so that's called the
mustard. It's a noun, it's a noun.
So not the verbs to read, or Mohammadi read. So it all came back to the master and the proof that Cora came from Quran is in the Quran itself. It's in the Quran, Allah says, In surah Fukuyama where he's addressing Rasul Allah,
led to Heinrich be Healy Sana colita jalebi dirt haste in your tongue there if they are with your rasulillah when you are reciting the Quran, prophets Allah Salaam when upon receiving the revelation from jabril and debrid was reciting to him Rasulullah would recite immediately after him why fearing he's going to forget, so rojiblancos he'll restart straightaway Allison No, no, no, don't become hasty. Just bear Right this way. In Aileen Gemma Hua, or upon us Don't worry about promising the profit upon us. It is Gemma, we're going to compile it. And it's called Anna meaning it reads citation. Don't worry, you're going to know how to recite it. It's upon us. The promise you're going
to recite it. You're not going to forget for either coroner who so when Giblin recited to you for debit, or
so when jabril recites follow his Quran meaning follow his research station, what makes sense, follow his Quran follow his must have were you going I must have her. Does that make sense? What doesn't make sense except it has to mean Quran. Quran literally means a recite tension that you could say a recitation
based on these sorts of tiama as the first meaning
and the second, although there are many more we just limit it to two today.
The word Qur'an
the word could and came from CT,
And CT means something which is compiled
even means something which is encompassing.
What do you compile
a book. So it's compiled the
the SWOT verses in chapters have been compiled into a book.
It's a compiled version of the game. It's a compilation of the rulings sec compliant ation of the revelation. It encompasses so many things, what does the court encompass?
But is it cam rulings? Good What else does it include?
stories of the prophets excellent What else?
Correct your worship with your query worship with the hate worship laws good punishments
perfect masala character
it's an amazing book has this and more came from a man who was only couldn't realize him.
What did you get all this information? And it wasn't known to recite a book from before and also couldn't write Makana yo Toby emini alive and says this in the Quran he couldn't write isn't used to write and record. So where do you get this information from?
No doubt from a revelation. So
there encompasses many fields, many aspects. You know, the Quran is not a book of science, but it deals with science. There's not a book of biology and it discusses biology. It's not a book of this or this or this, but it's all of that and more
medicine, correct? geology, to panel astronomy, in the Quran.
The Big Bang is mentioned in the Quran, or the origin of the universe as mentioned in the Quran, Allah says in Surah ambia, addressing the kuffaar. Well, they're not don't they believe or don't they see of the heavens in the earth where one single joint unit that was together? And then a lot of just said he split them, split them. That's exactly how the universe began. They say the universe is expanding. We're analemma zero, that's also in the Quran. Allah says we are expanding it. It's expanding. So it's getting bigger over time in the future. If you go back in time to the past, what do you get smaller until you get to one single joint unit. That's exactly how the universe was and
then upon that explosion occurred, and
so it encompasses many fields upon our job. But but primarily, all of those things are for your guidance. The Quran is a book of God and Toad and in with the theme, Quranic for ourselves, not for ourselves. So it's not meant to just be put on the shelf and you pick it up, once you you know, move on, or when someone dies, to guide you daily. Those are the two meanings of Quran.
What's interesting is that from these two names,
we said, every single language there are four skill core components, when are they
speaking, good writing, and reading excellent.
Count the word could and encompasses all of those four skills in language. When you recite the Quran can it be heard? ashore? Can you listen to it? When you are reading it and reciting it? Are you speaking it? You are when it's being compiled in a book? was it written? Yes. And if it's in a book, aren't you reading it? In fact, the way it means the word code and means a lot to read. So the word called an xe covers all four skills panela. Danny, what an amazing book, it's here to give you knowledge. And that's why the first area revealed was to deal with knowledge. The first word revealed if caught up to deal with knowledge. The first or last war, White was one column by the pen
to deal with knowledge. The first of all, the first, or among the first of our last creations was the pen to deal with knowledge, the first condition of the Shahada and knowledge, the first thing to find a Muslim, I'll knowledge the first Al Fatiha knowledge of Allah. Do you find knowledge came first? First first first. First. I love teaching us make knowledge a first in your life. First. We need to worship Allah but we're also here to be slaves of Allah. Because one Mahalo to Jin, Leah budokon. What's a bad I mean, worship people translate this air. Allah says, I have not created the general mankind except to worship me. Yeah, yeah, boo doing a bad. What do you notice about the word
a bad dad a big word. It came from a smaller word.
slave to Allah created us to worship him? Yes. But to be slaves. Also, there's two in one. That means two things in one. Because when you're praying, yes, you're worshiping, but when What are you doing? When you're not praying? You know, further, you're worshiping, lower, you're worshiping What are you doing between those times of worship? It can be an act of worship it depending on your intention, but some people while they're praying, they're worshiping, but when they leave the prayer, right, they're not, for example, a person while praying he's like Abdullah, but when he's not as like, I'm the shape one, right? So Allah doesn't just want us to worship but he wants us to
make everything an act of worship and others to be a slave during the prayer, outside the prayer constantly see the beauty of that word, I bet that came from Abba, and other that means to worship but also is connected to Abba up same letters Exactly. Just what you say is different. So amazing. So the Quran has come to give us knowledge, give us knowledge. That's the meaning of Quranic
recitation, and compiler ation. If you want to summarize what I just said,
you can summarize it in those two words re citation compilation. So we're done with that. Well, hamdulillah meanings of the word Quran let's go on to the meaning of the word surah.
Now like to associate with a double life doesn't really matter. You can read it with a u Su, but it's so wrong. It's a Surah
What's the common translation for surah?
where do you find chapters?
In books, this isn't your ordinary book. Where else do you find chapters?
Bible? This isn't the Bible verse different chapters.
Yeah, that's right. Life The tribe. It isn't your biography. Isn't your life story? Where else do you find chapters? Start with n? No, no novels. This isn't a novel use of final in fairy tales chapter one, chapter two. This isn't a fairy tale. It's a good ad for chapter isn't really the best translation. But we use it of course, because we're limited in English. You see the definition I'm about to give you. You can't put any one word except in the word surah. There's no other way. What is sword I mean, there's four meanings to it. Although there are many more, I'm just going to give you four. The word sutra is used to describe something which is perfect and complete. It means
Or something complete.
What's the proof?
strong camel in Arabic is called Sora.
Once it reaches maturity strength, the peak of its age, its peak it's called a soda
bottle we'll say that they assume I have a camera which is strong, powerful mature. So assuming something complete perfect reached the ultimate level
no doubt the Quran is perfect.
I love begins the revelation after fed to have their legal key taboola reiber fee This is a book which has no doubt no contradictions, no errors, it's perfect. It actually challenges people to find mistakes, which author will do that which also will author a book and idea you got to find mistakes putting a challenge to everyone. people when they write a book they want to make money out of it. They want to sell want to get fans want to get a following not go find errors so people can lose. So this book can loses credibility, right and get a bad reputation, the current challenges. If you are in doubt, produce I sort of like it. If you're in doubt, show me mistakes. If this book was not from
Allah, surely you will find many contradictions, many discrepancies so far, it's perfect. It challenges people to find mistakes. Jewish scholars of the past and present, they tried to find mistakes in the Quran. They went nuts. One Jewish scholar, he locked himself up for six months, trying to find areas in the Quran researching and he came out and he said I couldn't find any mistakes. And he became Alhamdulillah. The many stories from the setup that this happens, what hamdulillah hamdulillah. In fact, I put a article on my Facebook page recently of a woman she says I was forced to accept Islam. Do we force people to accept Islam? No, she was forced. So how can
someone do that? Well, she forced herself to accept Islam, because when she read the Quran, and she read its meanings. She said, I submitted i can't i was just dumbfounded. You know, that's the meaning of Islam. You give up you submit to you, I gave up. I had no other choice but to submit this is the truth. This is the truth. Well, hamdulillah so it's perfect. It's a perfect book.
You know, even with the advent of technology today, it's only further adding more confirmation to the clan, more human embryology Who can tell me the stages of human embryology for those who haven't studied it in the Sharia, right, we just took her recently who can tell me quickly topia,
that we live in 2015 modern technology right 21st century yet even asked who probably even studied biology at university or school we'd be hard pressed giving you you know, but this is in the Quran. It starts off as not for not
in holochain insane I mean, not affecting me. Gene not just any note for I'm sure it's mixed. In other words from the male and the female it's mixed. That's true. The human is credit from both, but not only that, not a lot of people think only you know the sperm drop or the small drop of fluid both um shared means Jani Mohan Lata, then Allah
and then the ivam Okay, are formed in in the close with flesh good. And then
the roof is blown into that's the right that's the order. So Pamela, what's amazing is not fair doesn't just mean sperm drop as you said, it means something mixed, but it also means something with water in it. That's exactly how we've been quoted from water. first miracle second aloka aloka sorry.
I love God doesn't just mean blood clot that would have been good to a two minute dumb alcoholic is a dumb alcoholic blood clot. But Allah has mentioned and also I mentioned, I'll fry it means blood clot and I've got a look. It's attached to something because it's attached to the uterus and I love coming to hang. So it's not just like that.
Something that's attached and hanging suspended is alcohol. So, and the word alcohol is also used to describe that little Duda in the water, stagnant water, what is it? Lh it's called the aloe catenary because it literally sticks to you SubhanAllah. And that's exactly how the, the, the embryo is at a stage. It looks like a leech, and it attaches itself to the uterus and it's suspended a little bit, and it's filled with blood.
All those in one word, Allahu Akbar and then mudo translated as lump of flesh, but Rasulullah could have said, but automata lamb, or lahemaa, a piece of meat flesh, that means flesh, lamb and men's flesh or meat, but he said,
Yeah, for mothers to chew. So it's near its flesh, but it looks like it's been chewed up like gum. That's exactly how it looks. So more miracles, the panel or the words are so precise. In order, that's exactly how we are created. And if you would look up this further, there's a doctor by the name of Professor Keith Moore, non Muslim, he didn't even accept Islam, but he had to give a lecture on the miracles of human embryology found in the corner. Professor Keith Moore, and asked, Why don't you accept it? Sam says I'm a Christian and I believe that all worship the same God of Christianity, he has now the Allahu Akbar Al Hamdulillah, Keith Moore, I saw this recording which was in the 80s.
So the recording was in the 80s. He may have denounced 2016
Christianity and he has not embraced any religion because yeah, Sharla shall lay this next meaning of surah it means something lofty and high.
can say I've been given a surah I've been given a lofty status, you can say that. The word surah literally means something raised. And this is based on the Arab poets and Arabic poetry. The famous Arab poet and Nebula said to the king when praising him, and I'm Tara and a lot of talk so rotten, don't you see? Don't you realize Allah has granted you a sudra meaning
a high status, a raised position above the people, lm todo en la Taka, so rotten, this is from the famous Arabic poet and nebula. And by the way, all of these notes are found in the introduction of the CD look at it look at it wasn't just the professor he was expert intercede. He was also a muhaddith, an expert Hadith, and he's also a local we an expert in the Arabic language. And I first came to realize this in Ramadan when I was reading the Tafseer of some of the items with a buckler, like the I love challenges the Kufa to produce a sort of like it when in quantum theory, the man has an alibi, in fact to be solved immediately. Right? Oh, I was reading the RFC that he gave on this
ayah. And he went into the linguistic miracles and the linguistic eloquence of the Quran. And I was just amazed by I was dumbfounded. In fact, afterwards I didn't even understand, sir eloquent and he was aloha way back. I had lova. He had Arabic language, he was really eloquent. So in his introduction to SFC, do you find this, you find this so if you want the source, it's all found in the introduction of the city of Nicosia.
lufti. So that's the meaning of surah.
they've seen even Kathy
you can find this online and you find in the code and college section in the when you go into the login of the Student Services, his name was even considered the student of his new Tamia. Third meeting of surah it means part of something.
And it can also mean
leave it apart, or remain double leave it as part for a part of something else.
fat a cup filled with orange, orange juice, and then I drank most of it to that remainer.
Okay, that's called that Sora. The word surah came from Sumatra. Part of it, the remainder of it.
the remainder of something is called soda. So I drink some water and I leave some, the remainder or the part of it is called Sula. What how does that connect with soda?
It's a part of the it's a it's a part. You could say part of a juicer or a soda is part of the revelation.
It's a part of a last word upon Allah. So the word surah.
In Arabic, there's a Hamza after the sin, so
rather bigger for you.
So write that down. Because the next one, I'm going to require the board solo
part of something
Because it's part of the revelation part of the Quran part of Allah speech
and there's one more
then we'll go into
last but not least, and this is one of the most encompassing definitions right of soda if you had to use one of them, this is probably one of the best the word soda came from the word sewer in Arabic correct? sent to Mashallah soon.
Very good, excellent students Mashallah
excellent students, only the best to Mia hamdulillah Su and I saw his eye wall, a fence or a partition.
In other words, something that separates something else.
See this this can be called
a sword. This is a sword This is a sword. I will I find something that comes between something else and separate it that's called a sword. A divider Yes, all of those are called a swirl and sewer and Surat sewer. Though connected.
This is in the Quran. The word sewer is no Quran which Surah
Al Haddad sorbitol Hadid. Allah azza wa jal says, follow the babina home be sewer in law who Babb on the Day of Judgment. They'll be placed between them, meaning the believers and the hypocrites I sued I partitioned the vida it divides the truth from falsehood. On that day Yama, Yama, a barrier will be set between the believers and then whatever your con panel, this is on this slot. On the bridge over the Hellfire, the kuffaar have already been thrown into a fire Alhamdulillah Allah layer done right as I say, Good riddance. Now who are left believers, when I click on this one I feel called hypocrites. They showed Islam on the outside but they had to go for on the inside. So that will
divide them from the believers upon
there'll be a door so we don't know who Babylon penis. So I haven't seen it. And I don't know how it looks. Who knows. So I don't know him. And this
this world of ideas, believers from disbelievers and when I feel good, and on one side is punishment, and other side is mercy, so where the believers as mercy and other side is punishment, and that's when they'll be thrown into their file so it's upon Allah protect us. So
maybe the door is to give them hope, but false hope. You know, this is something that happens though like in Hellfire, they'll try to climb out and they think they're almost in the fall back in. Alright, and this is in the cloud. When we get to a certain number. You'll see how Allah gives them this word. Okay. labby thena Fie her
Baba. Baba. Literally, it comes from a heck of a half copies a set time. So okay, but I thought Hellfires attorney, it is attorney. But what happened? This is now extra punishment. Because let's just say you put a kid on detention remember at school? Okay, you're gonna stay here, right? lunchtime. And I'll come and see you if you're progressing at halftime right? The halftime build to see if I can let you off and go play with you made the kids waiting. Okay, halftime bill when it comes to be let off. He comes now you're going to stay for another half. Right? All of lunch now. The tension all of lunch, right? psychological torment. So they'll think, Okay, this has to be
finished and how they were going to get up and they think it's finished another, another 10,000 years, another 1000 years, another million years, you're gonna stay there and they think it's over. It goes again.
It's not just physical torture, it's psychological torture in general. And because it's pleura haba means it keeps on going keeps on going. It's eternal. The area is giving you eternity. Even though the word use it's plural The only a lot but the terminology in the Quran is amazing. Now, you might ask, okay, what sort of fence got to do with a sword from the Quran? Right? I'm sure you thinking what's the connection between a world and a fence? Right? What is a wall do what does a fence do? Okay. It splits things correct. Exactly. And likewise, the sort of the crenna split. So the heart is different from certain buffer. So the buffer is different from certain Allium around it splits them,
just like a fence. I will split sections of a house sections of a building, right? Also what else does offense do?
It protects things Asante, literally a wall can protect things on the inside. So the ads are protected by Allah. The Quran is preserved. So see all those meanings from so we said to split.
Number two, to protect.
What is his offense to it keeps things
we said to protect and say but on the inside
purposes, it encompasses to encompass. It keeps things as surrounds it and keeps it on the inside. So namely something that is surrounded by a sword surrounded by a fence. A house perfect.
Joe, right, that's right, it's surrounded right now, just as the suit, the fence around the house, the surah surrounds and encompasses the ayat, just as the fence keeps the house on the inside the sewer keeps the air on the inside, right, it keeps it enclosed.
Yeah, that's right. So that's what it's meant to be here. Right? That is always meant to be in that sort of, that's what the prophet SAW Solomon who received a ad from different so would you play your safe place, this one here plus this one there and I'll write it. So it is to encompass upon a law and namely some rooms in a house,
bedroom, bathroom, kitchen,
toilet, office kids room right now they're all different rooms, but they all encompassed within the sort of the fence right? And although the different rooms aren't a part of the same house, they are you can't say all the bedrooms are part of the house or the kitchens are part of the house. Although there are different rooms they all connected one way like was in a suit or you have different themes. Look at sort of Buffalo for example. It starts off by talking about the believers right five eight, and then it changes the topic to disbelievers to eight and then it changes the topic to the monastic 113 eight right and then it talks into the question of Adam different topic altogether. And
it goes into the story of masala to them different topic altogether. It goes into the issue of fasting different topic. So yeah, different topic. Divorce different topic solar, different topic jihad, different topic hide many different topic, different topics. They're all connected within the sort of just like have different rooms connected within the house.
Okay, this is a big, if I was to explain, it might take probably 10 minutes. I'd rather use that time for the session in the q&a. We'll have a break. We'll answer that question. While I was a quarterback on a Sunday. So as you can see different rooms in a house they're still connected. different themes within the sorter are connected but the gaffer doesn't see that when the capital the orientalist approaches the Quran he said, Look, one topic jumping from one to the next, right all mixed up a little dizzy. No, no heavy B actually physically wants to Habibi, you say no. Okay, yeah. Or Hey, man, it's not like that. So I like that. But rather, they all connected even if you
don't see it, for example. So to be fair, the first three I add 123 talking about al hamdu. lillahi Rabbil, alameen, Mohammed, Mohammed Malika, what?
praising Allah, correct. So it's knowledge about Allah right? Among many things, knowledge of Allah, what are you for about?
Correct? Yeah, can Abdullah can Stein worship of Allah?
What's a five?
He their guidance in a guide us right? It's about guidance. Now to the disbeliever. He thinks all of these different topics right? knowledgeable and worship of Allah will have the or related, ignore claim sum that up eloquently, he said, I add 123 are about knowledge of Allah. And once you gain knowledge of a law, you should implement that with worship of Allah. And when you have knowledge of Allah and worship Allah, you'll get guidance from Allah.
So if you find someone's not guided, or you're having problems with your guidance, one day you on one day or off one day or great, one day you've cocked it, then perhaps because of lack of knowledge, or lack of worship, or lack of birth, if you Yes.
So, we're going to get to a in a moment, what a means. Yes, we're still on sorta when I give it a ticket means we've completed it. No problem. So, see how they all connect. Right? And what's interesting is one right you have does anyone need this part?
Now, defences Connect walls Connect, they do right see how they connect at one point they connect. So just as you have houses Connect, right? And what do they form
a road or a street right? Literally the houses the sewer. The fences connect to form a street streets form.
neighborhoods, they form suburbs, then they form cities, towns, what are they form? states what are they form? countries and they form continents and they form
the world rather simply left
or right. So they form they start small and they connect until you have something bigger. Likewise the poor and you have letters Alif Lam Meem hammy for her. Right? They form words, words form, yet I add form, sewer sewer form a zap, zap form.
The ads that form the whole
it's all from Surah panela Jeep. So,
no problem, no problem. So, you understand the houses form a straight straight form, okay. So we have letters
they form what words good, they form sentences, which are really I add right you could say I add them as surah.
And so Sora will form plural
okay and that will form a his,
the husband form is smaller, depends how you look at the asset, this asset which are shorter and which are great longer, and that will form a juicer.
And then you have finally, the end.
Let's see how the beauty of the word surah encompasses all of those meanings. We just take what are they What did we say four meanings number one, something which is
perfect and complete correct. Second meaning of surah.
Love tianhai protected predicted encompassed
part of something else part of the revelation. All that is found in one word pseudo.
So how could you summarize that in one word you can't in English, you have to say chapter, what are you going to say? How are you going to explain this whole concept to a non Muslim that asked you what sort of mean? Now you need a good 1015 minutes as we've just taken, but because we lack that time, in other words, usually we just say chapter so people understand. But as students of knowledge, you have a deeper understanding right now if you want to, if you think that's a lot of information, one of the best ways to retain it is revision, but also teach it. teach it to your husband, teach it to your kids, teach it to your sister, teach it to someone and will I know when
you teach you learn more? If there are teachers Yeah, I know there are when you teach people concepts you actually consolidate that information in your mind. One of the best ways to learn is to teach. The scholar said it the LMT can Nikita lamptey Martin O'Hara when you teach is if you learn for a second time. And that's why a lot of machines when you ask them questions, they just quote fidella as a hadith from top of the head, and well, how did you just know that? They've been teaching it for years? So it's it's all us it's been memorized? Just like what the Fed has memorized?
Yeah, who needs the board? Still? Anyone? Okay.
Last part, which is?
What does it mean? Or commonly translated, or I should say,
verse and you're going to see once again, it is not just verse. In fact, that's not a correct translation. And this introduction is important. Because when I talk about yet I'm going to use the word ayah. To I'm not going to say verse usually, right? I'm not gonna say chapter I'm gonna say sudo. So that's why this introduction is important. And you will appreciate what I'm saying. So don't you appreciate what I'm saying? I
lost one, and then we're done with this subject. And then finally, we'll go on to calligraphy.
You can run it like that. Or like this doesn't really make a difference in English, but Arabic. There are two ways also. The Hamza and then the Elif problem, they're both acceptable.
Oh, yeah. You can write it like that.
And we said, It's commonly translated as verse. Where do you find verse in the Bible? This isn't the Bible. What else do you find verse songs. The Quran isn't music or sauna, sauna, song. poetry, Quran isn't poetry verse
plays, you know, find them in play. It's not it's not a play. So, verse is the correct translation either.
So was a mean also it has to be said for meanings at least for surah there are four meanings for at least also. Firstly, it means something which is a wonder and amazement.
Like a Jeep You know, when you say a Jeep in Arabic, you say I have a this is amazing, wonderful.
Yes, it means miracle also correct.
In Arabic, it's cold.
A lot of talks about the creation, and how these are ayat, right? For those who contemplate so if you look at the human body, how we've been credited, it's miraculous, the way we function as humans is nothing short of a miracle. How can this come about by chance, if you just look at, for example,
you know, when we're born, were born without teeth. Why? Because you can only imagine the experience a mother would feel if a newborn had teeth while breastfeeding.
Okay. And then later, they come and kids have accidents, a lot of the time, they may lose a tooth, tooth chip some teeth, right. So then they go and you set this panel, and then I keep growing. Otherwise, you have your teeth going until they stop at a certain stage, this is part of a larger wisdom. And when you eat, again, is something which is saliva, which you know, it's like 99% water, what does that do to the food
moistens it's easy to make easy to break down, especially when it goes into the esophagus, very difficult to swallow something which is hard as a rock, very difficult to actually be very painful. There softens it, so your teeth can then break it and rip it apart also using the mobility. And then in the esophagus upon low when you are swallowing food. There's also the passage for the airway, but there's something that blocks that so you don't choke.
And then in the esophagus is something called peristalsis, which is like this Caterpillar movement that moves the food one way, you know, like a one way street, go back, you're not allowed. So I can't go back up and ask to actually push it down. Sometimes you feel it's like going down when you hit. And then when it gets to the stomach, there's like this, this opening that accepts the food, but then it closes. Why? Because your stomach releases these gastric enzymes that are very powerful that break down the food. And if that little opening, what stayed open, that'll come up. Yeah, gastric acid. And that's why you get heartburn sometimes, because some of that enzymes go up. And
for those who have issues that open all of these and what's amazing, this, these enzymes are so strong and powerful. And a lot of people say oh, coke and acid drinker, it ruins your stomach wall. Also that personnel, your enzymes in the stomach, their digestive enzymes are far more powerful than Coca Cola.
That's true. It's just an excuse. Actually, I'm not into Coca Cola. Okay, but anyway, you get the idea. And what's interesting is that the stomach doesn't digest itself through the stomach digests. But what doesn't it digest itself, it doesn't digest itself because a lot of credit is in aligning within the stomach that prevents it from digesting itself. panela You know, when something does something, it usually does part of it to itself, like a washing machine, it clean, cleans out the clothes, but it's also cleaning the inner part also, right? When the water and the soap go through, it's actually cleaning it as well. So, but how does it digests everything on the inside without
digesting itself? And guess what all happens simultaneously? It all happens voluntarily without you even controlling it. Imagine you have to control your digestive system. Okay, now digest Nelson the food aka here. And now send Yeah, now send it to here. Send the proteins there and send the carbohydrates there. Get rid of the fat Yeah, that's the first thing you press the fat button. But the body knows a locker the body is such an amazing way. No, it's the ultimate machine. And with no matter how much science people have, they'll never be able to to make a human from nothing. Never. Never. Let's try to clone but there's always defects and
then the clever just create a human and even if you did, what about the soul? Even when you're flying, you're still creating something, something or something so it's not creation really in true sense of the word. Yeah, people can recreate it because Allah mentioned in the Quran, you know, Allah is an old Hall is clean toilets. Clean is plural. So Allah Yes, there are creators but now we can create like a look. But with the advent of technology, no one can create the human eye you can't replace the human eyeball. You can't that's why there's no but these are all these are all miracles so so this is a you say an area Allah says these are at Fie unfussy. Come in yourselves. That's only
one part. Now there's so many other parts of the human body. Maybe in the future. I intend to do a course on this on because this is what we studied at university human physiology and biology. And just the way the human body works is amazing. It's amazing for the Hala canal in Santa Fe, US Anita queen. So that's the second meaning of
miracle. Thirdly, the word Aya means allameh a sign it's a sign.
Allah said this is sort of buckler in I Tamaki the I assign the token of his dominion is 123.
So I lemma in Arabic, you could say this, you could say is Alabama, Alabama
and there are two types of
I'm at two types of signs. There are called Anik. signs like the ayat, and there are
universal worldly signs. Right? There's iron core Ania. Yet konia
know the signs in the universe like the heavens in the earth, the sun, the stars, the moon, the birds, the bees, the trees, all those things they are yet they no signs of a las creation, when you see them, surely they must be created.
When you see a watch, you know, there has been a watchmaker that works like clockwork, well, the heavens and the earth also they also on clockwork,
and surely living credit also, and just be made from nothing.
You know, so when you look at the science, you know, once an Arab Edwin was asked, prove to me God exists. He said, he just he's a Bedouin Arab, right? Not very eloquent. He said, when I see the stools, the feces of a camel, I know the camel has been here. So when I see these, these remains, these are these them traces right of like the heavens and the earth, the mountains, and they've been credited also allows his effect has taken place. So he totally understood it. If I see this, it leads me to that. I see the footprints of someone on the floor that someone has caused. So these are all prints, literally like marks, effects, these are signs of Allah. And just come about just like
that, you know, if you came into the room,
and you saw this
to the three pens that I've lined them up standing, would you believe that they had a meeting? And I said, Look, red pen, you go first brown pen, you go second? Blue? No, that's silly. If you believe that we have to send you to Liverpool hospital. Right? Yo, paramedic, right with a psychiatric ward. But you know, it's that that order three pins, or three pins in that order? Well, they just Oh, they fell from the heavens.
With you know, they just came down, I feel perfectly in there line themselves up in that order. You know, how can that you seem that surely someone placed in there, it didn't just come about by chance if three pens can come together like that, by chance, a pen can't make itself? How can the human make it make himself who made the pin? It's not logical at all. It doesn't go in once the anti Manta logic gets irrational. So these are Signs for us. This is one that's part of the test in believing the unseen.
I believe that I believe that was I can't remember if we had three or four clinics, although we'll leave it at three for now if I do remember the other one, I'll let you know.
Now, what's interesting.
What's interesting is this word merge is now more design is commonly translated as what
miracle but it means much more than this. The word more ideas. As we said big words come from small words. It came from a jazza. I just said you find the agenda in that word.
Dah, dah. And agenda means what?
Now that's our juice, we'll get into uncapable incapable, unable.
Means unable. If I said I just do, I was unable. I just that rehab, she was unable I just Mohammed he was unable. I just that means you're unable.
Why? Because a miracle.
People are unable to perform it. You can't okay or perform a miracle for you right now. If people can't do it, people are unable to perform it. So a miracle. It doesn't just give it justice to that word. It's the perfect translation. And that's why the very old woman is called in Arabic. Jews, right? Why are bizarre Jews because she's unable to have kids. she's unable to do many things that she was able to do in her youthful days. Right? She can't run as fast you can't see us. She can't hear is good. right as you get older, this is the way humans are we we become unable over time. Okay, we get worse over time. We, you know, deteriorate, you could say so, I choose to panela means
out man or woman sorry. An old man is shave.
Yeah, I just means to be unable. That's a verb. Yeah. So if you say, I just did, you're unable, sorry. couldn't do it. Right. I just tea. And I juice I juice is an old woman. And a chef is an old man. Because they are unable to do things in their older years. They can't do things like they were doing when they were younger.
So that's where the word merge is came from from edges, more edges. edges are Jews IRGC. All those words are connected. As we said in the previous the three letter that's going really deep understand so if you find your lost then no problem nothing Yes
No Shave is an augment shave according that's just a joke. It's just for old woman. Yeah, old woman. Yeah. Old woman when old man is called shave.
linguistically a shave means old man.
Yeah, linguistically. But today we've used the four knowledgeable people as well Yes, sister on
it makes you more adjust. Yes, it makes you unable you just can't perform it. It incapacitates you and that's the beauty of now we're going really deep so if you need us if you haven't been switched on and you'd lost I lost you five minutes ago then you can take a break you don't have to understand oh good but for those This is where it's getting a bit bit deeper now
it's more just the the Castro here. Okay. This kasra
is different from more jazz the from the fat tap discus means a doula
effect. Nom effect Ha. It means done to.
Right now, it's not more adjust. It's more this right he so the E sound made it to do. For example, what does Mohammed mean Muhammad praised one he's praised what's Mohammed the eheim he praises is the dua. So that indicates the dua Mohammed is say the door more jeez the door also we are Muslim, see the the kasra the most limb, right, you submit your the door Muslim, the one who submitted to Muslim law who is Allah who submitted to you say done so most limb merges Mohammed see how the Castro indicates the door also men, men, men, you are the believer, you're the one doing the action, you're believing you're the woman and allies manby. You see how the customer means what do a Fatah
done to this is what is called in a science of Arabic Soph What can I get into all other other terms? Just understand that when it comes to four letters, right 1234 the margetts Mohammad Mohammed Muslim men to the four letters, the customer in the case the doula, so that's interesting. Why is it the doula because it's making you?
Asante making you unable so you're unable to perform it. But even if you try to guess what I'll say no. How do we stay where you are? You're not gonna do it's gonna make you unable for they're gonna push you down? Right? It's like my kid right? He wants to drive the car. Is he able to drive a car? He's you know, he's four years old. He can't drive. But let's just say you wanted to drive a car. What am I gonna do? You're gonna have up Take the keys. Now what am I gonna do? Stop him? I'm gonna make him unable No, no, what are you doing right now? Right, I'm gonna put it I'm gonna make I'm gonna do a GM said no, I'm gonna make him unable. I'm gonna stop him. So that's what the mortgage is
in the case even more. So pantaloni how deep can you get? So this is if you had to summarize a and this is the summary of this lesson.
Correct? Correct. So there's the word AI means. Ai, an amazing, wonderful sign that is miraculous, unable to be performed that incapacitate others. Yeah, that's the meaning of AI. That's why people just say okay, verse unable to say that the word is unable. So I'm unable to say that in a sentence, I'll just say a verse. So really, by definition in summary, and here the word
and amazing, miraculous sign
that is unable to be performed.
and it incapacitate others and makes them unable.
So now you're learning a bit of English as well. incapacitates.
That's the definition of a US law law workbook. So that's what Arabic studies should be giving you that deeper knowledge
Yeah, you are Geez. Okay. Yeah. So Margie, as we said mortgages, the Castro, it does it to you
created an IRA you won't be able to do
something good sister. So if you've understood the concept, I don't really care about the definitions and if you if that increased your Eman And you appreciate the Quran a little bit more after today Alhamdulillah that's the point. You don't have to be a scholar to enter gender.
You don't have to have a doctorate and PhD in Africa and Islamic studies to enter Paradise. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us whoever says Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah saw a different field called to be out of your thing, love of laws are believing in it firmly, the intergender. So, you know, if you find sometimes these lessons go in detail and you don't understand that's okay.
Sophia and Narayana said,
if you implement what you do know, Allah will excuse you of what you don't know. It's just about implementing what you know, this information, if it just makes you appreciate a lot more, if it makes you go to the animal and want to learn it more Alhamdulillah you've attained the objective Really? Yeah, these objectives are great. But the ultimate objective is taqwa and to get close to line, his book, does that come along and in for your attentive listening Sharla we'll have a break or stop here to panicle lahoma we'll be having digna shadow and the federal government
