salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam. We begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala. We asked him for his help, we asked him to send his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of karma, many brothers and sisters

00:00:34--> 00:01:23

I'm sure you have been following the tafsir intensive series. And right now we're dealing with several Fatiha that I've seen of certain Fatiha now along with the tafsir intensive series, I was thinking of touching on an important science that's connected to the FCA. So inshallah I'll be putting out a few episodes, a mini series, if you will, a dealing with soothsayer, this science known as a soul sale. So without any further ado, let's get into sort of Topsail I want to start off with the definition of soul FFC because I'm sure they mentioned the the mid I mentioned selective sale, you might be thinking, Well, I'm kind of familiar with the concept of Pepsi, but what is sold

00:01:23--> 00:01:30

at the sale? So let's start off by defining the title of this science who sold at Pepsi? What does it mean?

00:01:31--> 00:01:43

Now, the title is obviously in the Arabic language and it is upon the compound known as Morocco, Adolphe. Now this is obviously from a

00:01:44--> 00:01:56

linguistics standpoint, for those of you who are students of the Arabic language, and if all if you're familiar with how the Arabic language works, you would relate to Moroccan Rafi

00:01:58--> 00:02:47

otherwise known as the the compound that consists of a Madoff and a Madoff la he, now in the Arabic language if you wanted to show possession, let's say for example, if you wanted to say zeds book, nominingue issue would bring in an apostrophe in essence as a book in the Arabic language, you would have to put the two words key tabon and zaidan, through a certain mold to convey that made that meaning. So as they doin plus Kitab on Aki taborn plus zaidan would equal kita bu z, then, if you were to say Kitab, en and zaidan, then it would not convey that meaning, it would mean a book and site, but if you were to say kita boo zaidan, upon that mold, then you are conveying the meaning of

00:02:47--> 00:03:00

sades book. So similarly, Surah tafsir is upon that mold maraka Adolphe, so in other words, that seals susun, the, the the soul of at fc.

00:03:01--> 00:03:19

Now let's talk about the term who Sol Sol is an Arabic term, it is upon its plural form, and its singular form is a muscle in the Arabic language. So what does astral slash school mean? You can quickly translate it as a

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

foundation,

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

the root or the source of something,

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

a bedrock

00:03:29--> 00:03:34

something that something else is built upon us.

00:03:35--> 00:04:29

Now Allah subhanho wa Taala. He uses this word in the Noble Quran in surah Ibrahim, which is the 14th chapter I am number 24 lm Tara key for a lot of Allahu Allah. Do you not see how Allah puts forth a lot of Allah hometel how Allah puts forth an example, a parable method? And what is this parable? Kalamata tayyiba, Allah compares a good word to Khashoggi rotten tayyiba to a good tree. And now he uses the word arson aslha sabot. Its root is firm, while I thought oh, half is summer, and its branches are in the heavens. So as you can see, the comparison that is being struck is of this colossal tree, this massive tree, its branches in the heavens. So no doubt its roots need to be

00:04:29--> 00:04:47

very firm. So similarly, if you are going to put up a structure, but all building, if you will, a skyscraper. Now, the foundations cannot be shaky, you need to have foundations in place, the soul of that building needs to be firm.

00:04:48--> 00:04:55

So similarly, you have also looked up see the foundational principles of the seer.

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

And that's what we're going to be discussing in sha Allah data. So as you

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

can see now the term or soul is clearly understood.

00:05:04--> 00:05:12

But about the term tafsir. Here too It is an Arabic term that is upon the scale, the veil,

00:05:13--> 00:05:29

the veil which stems from farfalla in the Arabic language. So this word of seer it stems from first Sarah in the Arabic language, which is derived from fissara, which is there.

00:05:31--> 00:06:30

The telepathy route, in other words, the trilateral route of Tafseer fissara, in the Arabic language for seen Ra. So what does fissara mean? First, our means to become clear cache began to become clear, to basically become apparent to become manifest. And then when you put it upon the mold for Sarah, the robot, you root the four letter root for Sarah, it is to make something clear, it is to make something apparent it is to make something manifest. That is for Sarah, to make something clear, to make something a parent to make something manifest. So that seed is the concept of making something about it. The seed is the concept of making something clear to making something manifest.

00:06:30--> 00:06:31

So here

00:06:32--> 00:06:41

we are. So we have the sole the foundational principles of

00:06:42--> 00:06:50

making clear making something apparent from the noble core or soon loot app serial port.

00:06:51--> 00:06:58

So I hope it's clear in terms of the title. So when talking about the term of See here,

00:06:59--> 00:07:18

a question could arise as to whether the term Tafseer is synonymous with that that wheel is the word of seer synonymous with the term that wheel. Now you have this discussion that's in place as to whether tafsir is synonymous with wheel.

00:07:19--> 00:07:27

Now, there are some opinions that state that yes, the term Tafseer can be considered synonymous with the wheel.

00:07:28--> 00:07:38

But what is favorable is that, yes, you could have one meaning where Tafseer is similar to the term the wheel, but when you go into more,

00:07:40--> 00:08:20

a more precise definition, when you get into the granular details, you will see that the seal and the wheel are not the same. And these two terms are both mentioned in the Quran. And you don't see the thing is nothing in the Quran is brought about by coincidence, and you do not have synonyms you see in the Koran, because each word has its significant and distinct meanings in the Koran. So if you have to see it in one place, and that will in another place, they're not synonyms, they mean separate things in a very fine way. So what is the seal? Now that's it is clear, what is the wheel, that wheel

00:08:22--> 00:08:24

if you were to define it,

00:08:25--> 00:09:16

you could say that the car is merely scratching the surface, if you will. And that really goes a lot deeper, a lot deeper, it's loosely defined as the interpretation becomes the Quran, it goes a lot deeper. So when we say that we'll that will the template really is again upon the scale to fail. So it stems from our in the Arabic language, our in the Arabic language, which is translated like I said, to interpret something. But if you were to define it in the in the context of that we will amber now let's say in the Quran, there is something in the imperative tense there is a commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala now that we'll have the commandment of Allah azza wa jal is complying.

00:09:17--> 00:09:37

It's to do it fair Alou and we'll have an A, if you have a prohibition that is in place that we'll have an E is the cu, leaving that thing that Allah has prohibited us from? Similarly with regards to harbor in regards to say something

00:09:38--> 00:10:00

that is to happen, if you will, the will of that harbor is buku. its occurrence it's happening. And you also see this term that we used with dreams now the story of use of Isla to Islam, there are many dreams and the will and they are too it's it's defined as the interpretation when you talk about the interpretation

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

have dreams that that we'll have it is again the core of that the occurring of it. Now, for example, I think you would recall the dream of the king, where he sees 17 cows, sorry, seven fleshy cows being devoured by seven lean and 10 cows and other things as well that he witnesses in the dream and use of Allah to Islam by the will of Allah by the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He goes on to interpret that dream, when he says that we are going to experience seven years of abundance there are going to be followed by seven years of famine. And the interpretation of the dream now takes place. So this is how you understand the term that we like I said, it's fine. It goes in deeper than

00:10:55--> 00:11:12

Tafseer. Si tafsir is something a lot of people do. When it comes to the Quran. With a certain amount of knowledge you can make the Tafseer of the Noble Quran, but that will that that is of a very high level My dear brothers and sisters.

00:11:13--> 00:11:17

You see, Allah Subhana Allah Allah.

00:11:19--> 00:11:23

He reveals unto the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam

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

I

00:11:28--> 00:11:33

where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he makes that we have the eye.

00:11:35--> 00:12:20

We have an aeration where our mother I shout out the Allah one Ha. She mentions that the prophets are alone while you really were Selim used to implement the obile in the Quran. With regards to the idea that Allah subhanho wa Taala says for sub bit behind the rock because stuff here Now Allah says for sub bit behind the Arabic will still fit, glorify your Lord and ask for his forgiveness. Now this is as you can see a command from allies origin it is in the imperative tense for Serbia we have the Rebecca Stouffer glorify your Lord and seek His forgiveness, that we will have this that was implemented by the prophets and along while he was early he was Selim was that he sat along while he

00:12:20--> 00:13:01

very seldom would in record and sujood he would read subhanak Allahumma robina will be handed a lot more faithfully. Glory be to You or Allah our Lord will be handy can praised Are you a lot more fiddly er Allah forgive me in record, he would read subhana wa biella. Hajime will be handy. In sujood. He would read Sudan or be an island, he would glorify Allah, he would install a lot he would praise a lion he would seek the forgiveness of Allah azza wa jal. So as you can see that the reveal of that ayah for sub base behind the Arabic still fit the prophets lie Selim brought it into implementation. And as you can see, this is something that was upon a very high level of

00:13:01--> 00:13:09

understanding that was done by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and not everyone can attempt to make the will of the Quran.

00:13:10--> 00:13:11

So it is

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

finer and more in depth than the term of seal. So it is not synonymous and you can't simply say it's a synonym of tafsir But no, it goes a lot deeper than a tafsir. So I hope this discussion was of benefit My dear brothers and sisters in Sha loudhailer we will go on to continue with episode number two where we're going to go into a lot more detail and discuss this very important science. I look forward to talking to you all in another video soon inshallah, to Allah de como la Hira wa salam o aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
