Nevada legend from

00:01:49--> 00:02:00

brothers and sisters, from the greatest miracles that Allah subhanho wa Taala descended upon the prophets of Allah while he would send them was the Quran itself.

00:02:01--> 00:02:49

The Koran the very speech of Allah subhana wa tada is the greatest miracle sent to the prophets of Allah while he was sudden. And it is through the Quran that Allah subhana wa tada preserved many, many things in this religion. Through the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala preserved the Arabic language from the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala preserved the deen of Islam through the Quran. Allah subhana wa Jalla preserves the rules and regulations pertaining to our daily lives. Now, just looking at it from this angle, we can suffice to say that it is the most important book that everyone needs to study. Now putting this aside, let's take a look at a statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:02:49--> 00:03:03

sallam where he said I have left behind amongst you two things. If you say to them, then you will never go astray. A Hadith recorded both by Emmanuel Buhari and by EMA Muslim.

00:03:04--> 00:03:27

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam emphasizes that if you want to remain guided, then stick to do stick to these two things to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his Sunnah. So keeping this in mind, I thought this would be an ideal time to take a deeper look at the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and

00:03:28--> 00:03:31

this will be our discourse for the next two days.

00:03:32--> 00:04:19

Now, when discussing any topic at hand, whether it be academic or whether it be a religious science, one always needs to define parameters and take a look at the definitions of the subject matter. So starting off with the Koran, in the Arabic language, or when you study any science in Arabic, you are usually given two definitions, one what they call a tardy legally, and another what they call a tardy as productive as for the tardy monopoly then this is a linguistic definition. And as for the theory for this today, it is commonly translated as a conventional definition. But what they actually mean is that when you take the linguistic definition, how does this linguistic definition

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

apply to the actual science that you're studying itself?

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

So let's take a look at these two types of definitions and how they relate to the Quran and its sciences. As for the Quran linguistically, there are four common opinions. The first opinion is that of the mammoth novelty. And likewise, the majority of the scholars who discuss the science of the Quran follow this opinion as well. That the word Quran is a verbal nouns are what they call in the Arabic language a muster from the fan or the verb Cora, which means to read or to recite. So they say that the Quran is the verbal noun

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

From Chora to read or to recite slowcore iron is that which is read or that which is recited, and this is the opinion of the vast majority of scholars who discuss the sciences of the Quran

00:05:14--> 00:05:32

a second opinion, and this was the opinion of Imam Shafi and the reciter known as monkey, we will get here and monkey that we mentioned over here is not even clear, the author of the famous tafsir, but rather he was one of the originators of the Quran, who was famous in manga.

00:05:33--> 00:05:54

So in your opinion was that the word Koran is not derived from any word in the Arabic language, but rather just like the word torah, and in G, it is a word that is unique in its own sense, it has no origin in the Arabic language. And this is a title that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given by itself.

00:05:55--> 00:06:16

Thirdly, there was a third of opinion that mentioned that it comes from the word con, to join or to associate. When most of us go for hikes, can you study the ethical? Notice that a person can perform three types of hikes, there's 100, tomato, hygiene, and hygiene.

00:06:17--> 00:06:20

And this is it has the same origin

00:06:21--> 00:06:30

as the word quote, if one gives preference to this opinion, and it means to join or to associate. So in 100 Quran you're joining your hijab with your mom.

00:06:31--> 00:07:08

And the last opinion is that the word Quran comes from the word Cora in which means to resemble and to be similar. Now, why would they say that the word Quran comes from the word Cora in this is due to the fact that if one would actually take a look at these stores, and the layout of the forum and the structure of the Quran, you will find many similarities, that all of them start with this man of man or him the exception of one surah but all of them are split up into verses and all them have

00:07:09--> 00:07:21

you know, different characteristics or sorry common characteristics amongst them with the mention that the word Quran comes from Quran because one part resembles another and is similar to one another.

00:07:22--> 00:08:03

Memorize for the conventional definition, after having given preference to the opinion that the word Quran comes from God is the verbal noun from to recite and to read as for the conventional definition, and this is something we need to be very precise and meticulous about and when you actually study in the books of alumina, you will see right there are a lot of definitions and each of them have minute differences. And at the end of the day, it just comes down to wordings whereas the general meaning given from these definitions is the same. So the one that we have preferred, is that the Quran is the Arabic speech of Allah.

00:08:05--> 00:08:11

The Quran is the Arabic speech of Allah, which he revealed to Muhammad in the wording and meaning

00:08:12--> 00:08:36

and which has been preserved in the most house and has reached us by mutawatir transmissions. To repeat that. The the conventional definition is that the Koran is the Arabic speech of Allah, which you revealed to Muhammad in wording and meaning and which has been preserved in the must haves and has reached us by water water transmissions.

00:08:38--> 00:08:41

So now what let's take a breakdown of this definition.

00:08:42--> 00:09:34

The first part of this definition, and we'll number them as we go along with the law atana is that the Koran is the Arabic speech of Allah subhana wa tada Allah subhana wa tada mentioned in our living or more specific verses that the Quran is in Arabic Allah subhana wa tada says, In the second verse of sola to use of Indians are now called iron and Alia, that indeed we have revealed the Koran in Arabic or we have descended upon you a Arabic Koran. So the first thing is that the Quran is in no other language, except in Arabic. So these translations that we have, they are not considered the Quran. And likewise, one cannot use them to recite the Quran as some people do, but rather than the

00:09:34--> 00:09:38

Quran is in Arabic alone. So this is the first part of the definition.

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

The second part of the definition is that it is the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, this is a very critical points, as it caused much controversy amongst the earlier sense that it is the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning that Allah subhanho wa Taala himself spoke these words and

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

Through it gibreel Braun them to the prophets of Allah Juana he was sent. So now As for what this excludes from the definition, then this excludes any speech comes from men from gym or from the angels. But running the Quran is the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and no one else. So if a person brings the brings a god, he cannot claim that this the Koran and likewise if a person claims that a statement of God was brought forth, he cannot claim that this is the Quran. The Quran is only that which is the speech of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:10:39--> 00:11:09

The third part of the definition, it was revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And indeed this is one of the greatest miracles that would be called the center of the Quran upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began his prophethood. And likewise, when the revolution ceased shortly thereafter, departments of alaba lucidum passed away as well. So it played a very big role in the life of the prophets of Allah when he was sent them.

00:11:10--> 00:11:19

So when the Koran was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this excludes any speech that Allah subhanaw taala spoke to other than the peninsula.

00:11:20--> 00:11:38

So when Allah subhanaw taala spoke to musante, Sodom and mountboard or he spoke to any other Prophet, or revealed any other books to any of the previous messengers, this cannot be included in the Quran, but rather the Quran is only that which was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:11:39--> 00:12:22

The fourth part of the definition is that it is revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in wording and in meaning. And again, this is a very critical point, because again, the earlier sects of Islam, different over this being claimed that the Quran was just the meaning which was given to the prophets of Allah while he was sent him, whereas the actual wording was either brought out by gibreel, or by the prophets of Allah while he was sent them, because they claimed that Allah subhanho wa Taala could not speak and if you claim that he speaks, then you have given to him man like attributes. So we as I understand, we proclaim that the Quran was revealed to the Prophet

00:12:22--> 00:12:43

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in exact words, and in exact meanings. So there is no difference of opinion as to what the words mean, or what words were given to the prophets of Allah money was sent them and what they could possibly mean. But rather, they were all given from Allah subhanho wa Taala, to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:12:44--> 00:13:10

The fifth part of the definition is that it is preserved in the most house. And we can add to this and is likewise preserved in the chest and in the hearts of mankind as well. That as Muslims, one of the noblest deeds that we can do is memorize the Quran and learn the Quran and teach the Quran as of Minerva Wu Tang who narrates inside Bukhari.

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

Lama who, then the best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach it to the people. So the most half, so the Quran has been preserved in the most half, and in the chests of the people. Now what is the word must have actually mean must have has the same origin as cipher. And both of them mean that a form of loose papers or a form of collected papers, that's all it means. As for what we mean by it, when to use it in the terms of the size of the Koran, it is those papers that the Koran is written upon. So these green binded books that we have, which we refer to as the Quran, are actually must haves, and the Quran is that which is written on it, and then what you recite, whereas the book

00:13:58--> 00:14:42

itself is referred to a must have. So again, that which is between the two binding sites, is the Quran. So Allah subhanaw taala, preserved the Koran between the two must haves. Now something particular to this is when we added this definition that is presumed and there must have been a more specific meaning to it, meaning that the Quran is done which was preserved, and the most half of man, we will soon be discussing the preservation of the Quran and the three stages that it went to, during the time of departure sell them during the time of Abu Bakar and do the final stages during the time of birth. And then from the time he was 19. Our time today it is the same quarter and it

00:14:42--> 00:14:47

went through no changes thereafter, or very minimal changes at least, which were mainly printing changes.

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

So what was specific to the most of us, man? One thing that was specific that was specific to the most of us man was that it had 114 soldiers

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

Take a look at the previous must haves, they should say from obey, as they do the fair bit over, you know can had less than 100 students in his moustache, meaning that the most of the decompiled from the prophets of Allah Himself only had 100 soldiers, and he must have a villain

00:15:18--> 00:15:44

who only had 106 soldiers. So there were parts missing from their must haves, even though they had no match the cornerstone in this totality we did not have preserved in written form. And the Koran in its complete written form was compiled during the time both mine as we will shortly discuss, so when we refer to the term must have, we're not referring to any must have, but rather, we're referring to the most of our man specifically.

00:15:46--> 00:16:15

So the most of us man, again, another particular point pertaining to it is that it excludes all of those is which woman so, or abrogated before the death of the prophets a lot of money was sent them. So you would see that most of them is owed, and by him no camp, they didn't exclude those is that were aggregated before the death of the Prophet so long when you send them but trying to deal with left in and again, we'll get into a further discussion of this, as we take how the Quran was preserved.

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

So, that was the sixth point, the fifth point. And the sixth point is that it has reached us in a way with a wonder transmission.

00:16:26--> 00:16:38

And what we mean by this, for those of you who have studied the sciences of Hadith, you'll see that there are two forms of transmission or two ways of narrating and those are 100 times.

00:16:40--> 00:16:52

Now, there is no specific definition for either of them, but rather they go hand in hand and the leads to one another, as well the definition given to what the what the scholars say that

00:16:53--> 00:17:06

is that there are so many narrators in each level of narration, that it is not possible for them to agree a point a mistake or to agree upon a line.

00:17:07--> 00:17:32

So, again, they define what the one thing is, that it is so many levels, so many barriers in each level, that it is not possible for them to come together to agree upon a lie or to agree upon a mistake. And we can take an example of this is the Hadith of the prophets of Allah while he was sent them. When Kennedy Valley and Madame Madame Eden

00:17:34--> 00:18:21

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam narrated that he who lies upon me intentionally, then let him prepare his seat in the hellfire. This Hadith is narrated by over 70 companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and from those 70 companions, they each narrated it to many of the successors or determining, and Congress, many Tabby being related to even more people. So this is an example of one to one, meaning that there are so many people who learn the Quran from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so many people learnt the Koran from the Sahaba. And likewise there on that it was not possible for anyone to introduce a new idea, or introduce a word or even take out the word,

00:18:21--> 00:18:31

because there were so many people who had memorized the same text, that if one person made a mistake, then he would have so many more people correcting him. So the unreached is in a form which is a motto.

00:18:32--> 00:18:35

And one of the topics of Quran

00:18:37--> 00:18:45

which setting will not be discussing due to a shortage of time, is it different recitations of the Quran, but just to mention a brief point, there are 10

00:18:46--> 00:19:01

of the Quran which are motivated. There are 10 different recitations of the Quran, which are motivated and they are four which are which are usually called shells. And it is not permissible to derive

00:19:02--> 00:19:10

or rulings from these or hides narrations. So when you mentioned that you just wanted those four cetaceans which even though

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

they carry many similarities with the 10 color and they cannot be used as an evidence and likewise, they are not included in our definition, because they do not reach the level of mortality.

00:19:24--> 00:19:37

So, that having been said, we have taken a definition of the word one linguistically and conventionally and how it will apply to our discourse through the next through this day.

00:19:38--> 00:19:46

So now that having been said, let's take a look at some of the important books that have been written on aluminum.

00:19:48--> 00:19:49

Throughout history.

00:19:50--> 00:19:56

You will notice that the sciences of Islam from Al Qaeda to fit to Hades

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

to Masada and Hades

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

And other sites, he had no

00:20:04--> 00:20:48

beginning at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or the companions in written form, but rather it was just oral transmission. On the hand, it was the port, and the son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. It automatically understood these rules that apply to Arcadia and effect and Hades and anything else. And it was only during the time of italiani that they saw a need for books to be compiled, as many people were entering into Islam. And the oma was expanding and corn was coming in. And we didn't have the same understanding of the Arabic language that the Sahaba had. So they saw a need for books to be compiled on particular subjects. So we see that books of Akina

00:20:48--> 00:21:33

started to be written during the time of the advertising or the successes of the successes. And likewise, books of Heidi started during the time of the tambourine and they are on and so forth. So now when did the sciences of aluminum Quran actually began, besides, aluminum Quran actually began with hiding itself. And you will see that all over the Koran. There is no particular definition to it, but rather, people will include in it, anything that relates to the Koran, whether it be teachmeet, whether it be the recitation of the Quran, whether it be how the Quran Koran was preserved, whether it be the Nazi gunman, so are those which abrogated with another or whether it be

00:21:33--> 00:22:16

which is your monkey and madonie. All of these things they will include in our Luma core answer, there's no specific definition. And you will see that these portions of aluminum chloride, as always, is a part of aluminum core, are included in the various books of Hadith. But if you looked in the likes of Bukhari and Avi the old anonymity, you will see a portion of the book that is allocated for the abrogation of ions that this is abrogated with this ayah. Or you will see in the center with their own the compilation of the Koran, that he mentioned how the Quran was preserved during the time of man of the Lakota language, and this is how we know how the mother

00:22:17--> 00:23:04

came to preserve the Quran. So along with the sciences of Quran, long decisive hiding, the signs of the Quran were preserved in a similar manner. And each person didn't write a specific book on the Koran, but rather as time went on, we started writing separate books on separate portions of the Koran sumati devices are valuable. medini as you mentioned yesterday, the shape of the amendment Bukhari Rahim, Allah Allah, that he wrote a book on us bamboo. So in the year 231, you had a book on us bamboo, all the reasons behind revelation. And likewise, there were other books as well, was the first complete book that encompassed all of these things that we mentioned, the monkey, and by the

00:23:04--> 00:23:25

way, versus what was the first revelation was the last revelation, which is to aggregate it by one another was by azim Kashi, and he wrote the book on one hand. So this was the first complete book that encompassed the various chapters pertaining to the science of the Quran. It was written by a Basilica, she, and he called it Albert Hall. And

00:23:27--> 00:23:56

then as time went on, people commented on zylka cheese book and tried to edit it, and try to make some additions. And no one attempted to actually rewrite another Complete Book, or make it very different or distinct from the book, as this was considered the mother of all books in aluminum colon, until the time of a memasuki. And remember, he died in the year 911. And he called his book and it's gone pure aluminum.

00:23:57--> 00:24:00

He called his book and it's called pure aluminum.

00:24:01--> 00:24:27

And 911 This book is approximately four to five volumes depending on the printer that you buy. He compiled this book, and he included approximately 30 more chapters, then, she did so is it because she had approximately 40 chapters, or 14 different subjects that he discussed in the normal course. And then a monsoon he came and he included approximately 70 different chapters.

00:24:28--> 00:24:31

And then as time went on, no one

00:24:32--> 00:24:59

developed or progressed in the sciences of aluminum chloride, which finally stuck to the main books that were written before. Until our time today, you will find a lot of books on aluminum chloride, and most of them are just summaries of either on board or are they gone or usually will take a bit for both and polish together. So some of the books in our times and one of the books that I referred to the most for our discourse today is menaggio.

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

The airframe, the aluminum rod. And in all honesty, this is one of the greatest books I've come across, pertaining to the size of the court on the Lucas called Magneto the airframe to aluminum core. And this is written by

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

Mohammed Abdullah Lim.

00:25:21--> 00:26:07

And this book is in two volumes, and it was written in the 1940s. I believe, if I'm not mistaken, I believe it was the 1940s and it is the most extensive book in the Koran, meaning that he is very thorough in his research has gone through the various books of the center, and he is very precise in mentioning the correct opinion when there comes a difference amongst the different books. And likewise, there are other books which are commonly used as textbooks, the likes of my wife Leonel poron. Bye by Munna Al Capone, and is probably the most famous book in our times in the Arabic language pertaining to Roman Koran. And the benefit of this book, it is very simple, in its reading

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

the language is very easy to understand. And likewise, it doesn't mention too much of a difference of opinion when it mentions the different subjects. So this is a brief look at the books pertaining to lwml Quran and how it was actually preserved from the time of the Prophet So allamani was set up until our time study.

00:26:27--> 00:26:47

Now going back to the definitions that we met did the conventional definition that we mentioned, we mentioned that the Quran was the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And people often ask, what is the difference between the Quran and Hadith?

00:26:49--> 00:27:39

I could see all those IDs that you will find in all the books of Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim and other than when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that Allah subhanho wa Taala said, so he is quoting something directly from Allah subhana wa Tada. An example of this heading is where Allah subhanaw taala says in Sahih Muslim, or as an advice a Muslim is all my servants, I have been in justice, how long for me, I never made it how long between you. So do not be unjust to one another, that almost kind of once I made a vole Hassan upon himself, and likewise made harm upon mankind, sovereigns panels and orders us not to be unjust towards one another. So this is an example

00:27:39--> 00:27:45

of how the footsie and there are five main differences between a Heidi footsy and the

00:27:47--> 00:28:34

Firstly, the and this is again, we'll mention something that most of the people who study or may or have a discourse on I mentioned, and then we'll mention a critique of it. Then they mentioned that the first difference between the Quran and Hadith is that the Quran is the word of Allah subhanaw taala in word and in meaning, that the Quran is the word of Allah subhanaw taala in word and in meaning, whereas the Hadith can see is only a meaning that was given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam worded it. So when you mentioned something from the Quran, it is permissible to say that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Alhamdulillah

00:28:34--> 00:29:14

Allah when Allah mean, but when you're quoting Hadith bootsy you cannot quote it directly, but rather, you have to say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah subhana wa Donna said, and this is for two primary reasons. One is that the Quran is not mixed with the Hadith. And this is something which is understood and is very clear. Whereas the second point of distinction is that these scholars have Aloma Quran, they mentioned that the wording of the Trinity was given to deposit sentiment, meaning only in the Hadith Pudsey. Now, if one was to look at the various texts, and study all the Hadith bootsie and study the understanding of the companions, when it came to the

00:29:14--> 00:29:40

footsie footsie, that there's no mention, by any of them, that the highly footsie were given to the prophets of Allah while they would send them in meaning on the and this seems to be incorrect opinion that along with the Koran, the footsie were given to the console allamani was seldom in warning and meaning and it was clearance, most colors of evidences is what Allah subhanaw taala mentions in supernatural.

00:29:41--> 00:30:00

However, in whatever way you you have, that he does not speak of his own design, but rather it is a revelation that is given to him. So what I had in pussy and the war on order, the speech of Allah subhanaw taala in the wording and in meaning and this seems to be the correct opinion. Now, the second thing

00:30:00--> 00:30:46

Difference between the footsie and the Quran is that Allah subhana wa tada put a miracle in the Quran and puts a challenge in the Quran, meaning that Allah subhanaw taala he challenges the Quran and the arms of the past to bring forth something like the Quran, in its style, and its prose in its content. It is an open challenge for all of mankind. Up until today, those people who criticize the Quran, our simplest challenge to them is just being something like it, in its poetic form, in its content in its meaning, which means something like the Quran and we will accept it, but no one was able to do so even from the time of the Arabs, whereas the Hadith and bootsy we do not hold this

00:30:46--> 00:30:59

miraculous nature. They do not come in any form of rhyme, and even the content. Most of it is found in other Hadith or in the Quran itself. So let's suppose Allah did not bring about this challenge in the idea.

00:31:01--> 00:31:09

Thirdly, Allah subhanaw taala promised to preserve the Quran, but he did not promise to preserve the medical good.

00:31:10--> 00:31:37

So Allah subhanho wa Taala, he promised to preserve the Quran for this Omar was the currency war, he didn't promise to preserve them. And focusing on this point, and getting into some detail. This is again, a very, very big failure upon the owner of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, that if you look at the previous books, which were sent down and revealed to the previous nations, Allah subhanho wa Taala did not

00:31:38--> 00:32:05

grant them the favor of preserving their books for them, but rather it was their own initiative, and they had to take care of it on their own. So they didn't have the help of Allah subhanaw taala in preserving it, whereas when it comes to the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala promises the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we will descend the Quran upon you and likewise we will be the ones who protect it in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the angels are the ones who will protect the one who

00:32:07--> 00:32:40

will handle it panel talks about the rabbis and priests mentions that the responsibility of preserving their books is upon their shoulders, and they will not have any particular help from Allah subhana wa Tada. So the third point again, is that almost promises to preserve the Quran. But he does not promise to preserve the idea for good See, and it shouldn't be mistaken as that Allah subhanaw taala will not preserve the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but rather we're speaking of a specific portion of it. And that is the idea.

00:32:42--> 00:32:45

Before the difference between the Quran and the Hadith

00:32:46--> 00:33:12

is that the Quran is mythological, meaning that it was revealed by by Allah subhanaw taala to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the prophets of Allah when you send them taunted to so many of his companions, and they taught it to so many of their successes, that in each level is impossible, anyone could have forged a lie or introduced something into the Quran that was implemented or taken away from the Koran, that which is from it, whereas the

00:33:13--> 00:33:20

devil not preserved in such a manner, sometimes you will find a Hadith, which is, or sorry, the vast majority hadn't

00:33:21--> 00:33:40

made any progress all along, it was only mentioned this heading two to three companions, returning to two or three successors who targeted two or three of their students as well. So, the transmission of the good thing is not to such a degree that it is what I wanted, which was the vast majority of you know, the

00:33:42--> 00:33:49

body and ammonia from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are ahead and very select and few of them are actually selected.

00:33:50--> 00:34:15

Now points number five. And this is a point that some scholars included in the definition of the Quran is that we worship Allah subhanaw taala. In reading the Quran, that in the reading of the Quran is the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. And thus, it is the only thing you can read in salon. You know, when you're reciting while you're standing in salon, you would say to

00:34:17--> 00:34:30

another student as well, one could not recite the Hadith and could see if he wanted to, he is only allowed to read the Quran alone. So does Allah subhanaw taala has given the Quran this distinction.

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

verse Allah subhanho wa Taala has given them this distinction. And if you notice, and let us expand a little bit on this point, the Baraka and blessing that Allah subhanaw taala gave in the Quran

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

within Saudi, narrated by Abdullah with the muscles around the Allahu anhu that he learned from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he said he

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

Reading of the letter of the court on our 10th sentence, and

00:35:06--> 00:35:24

I do not say that Alif Lam. Meem is one letter, but rather an IP is one letter and lamb is one letter and means one letter. So the understanding of this honey is that when we recite these three, these three letters at the beginning of the sutras, more specifically in Surah, Al Baqarah.

00:35:26--> 00:35:36

Just by reading these three letters, you get 30%. And this is something clear and understood. But now let us go to other apps have a better

00:35:38--> 00:36:07

and another Atomy burden which is profound in Islam, and is highly recommended and is Beloved, not only to the Muslims, but to us, as well. It is so beloved, that almost hangovers Allah ordered us to spend it amongst ourselves and then is the giving of Santa or the giving of the greetings of peace to one another. And again, this is another blessing that Allah blesses my with them they have a prescribed greeting that we greet one another with.

00:36:08--> 00:36:53

So when he mentioned by abode, Rahim, Allah Tada. So he is matches the department's A lot of it was sudden was sitting with his companions one day, and a man came by and he said a Salaam Alaikum to which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said 10 when another man came, and he said salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah towards the purpose of a refined insulin set 20 and then a third man came, and he said, uh, Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said 30 now the companions, being the enthusiastic and inquisitive people that they were wanting to learn are good and wanting to implement all good. They asked jasola what is it that caused you to

00:36:53--> 00:37:30

mention these numbers? After each person entered towards the province of alarm, it will send a reply. Then the person who says a southern Monaco will have 10 words. And the person who says a salaam aleikum, wa rahmatullah will have 20 rewards. And the person who says a Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah wa barakato will have 30 rewards. Now look at the immense blessing of the Quran, that this long phrase, our salaam aleikum, wa rahmatullah wa barakato, as blessed as it is, and as much gold as it brings about and as much love as it spreads amongst the Oman.

00:37:31--> 00:38:02

Penguins, it only gives 30 rewards for it. Whereas if one says Alif Lam, Meem he gets the exact same amount of rewards. And it's something to contemplate upon brothers and sisters, that when we think about good deeds to do, we often think about, okay, you know, I'll give some money to charity, or I'll pray some extra songs, or, you know, I'll donate something. Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with a great miracle in front of us a blessing and enormous miracle. And that is

00:38:03--> 00:38:35

that if you want to obtain rewards, learn the Quran, memorize what I teach the Quran to the people, and each time you teach the Quran to the people, and someone learns and then you will likewise will also get the reward as well. So this is something very important to keep in mind on how fortunate we are as Muslims to have this book was preserved from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. till our time today, where if we recite even a few letters a week, we get the reward of doing greater actions as well as we just mentioned.

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

Now,

00:38:37--> 00:38:49

talking about the Quran, if one was to study the Quran, they would see that Allah subhanaw taala gives several names and descriptions to the Quran. And this will be our topic of discussion now.

00:38:51--> 00:39:08

There are many meanings of the Quran and we will take six of them within the exam and these are the six most common of them. Likewise, almost pilota also gives many descriptions, but the descriptions are many and we will just suffice with a couple of them as well.

00:39:09--> 00:39:28

So the first name that Allah subhanaw taala gives for the Quran is alkaline, Allah subhanaw taala calls, we call the Quran in various verses, but an example of them is a sort of an insane wellness panel dialysis in verse number 23. In

00:39:29--> 00:39:41

a color for an eternity 10 Zealand, but Allah subhanaw taala says that we have revealed the Quran upon you O Muhammad as a form of Revelation, meaning that it descended upon you and it came down to you.

00:39:42--> 00:39:50

So Allah subhanaw taala refers to the Quran and the Quran and this is insert will insert it number 23.

00:39:51--> 00:39:58

Likewise, Allah subhanho wa Taala calls the Quran Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Psalm 91

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

eternity began in liquidation.

00:40:03--> 00:40:05

Meaning muslimin

00:40:07--> 00:40:59

analysis and certain number 89 that we have revealed the Quran We have revealed upon you with the book, A clarifier for everything, any guidance, any mercy and a collage tidings for those who submit. So Allah subhana wa tada in this novel I called the Quran, Allah kita. And this is this I in particular, is an iron that one should focus on almost, in this particular ayah. He mentioned some of the objectives of revealing the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says when it comes to DNA and liquidity say that we have sent down the Quran upon your Mohammed as a clarifier, for all things. Now, what does Allah subhanaw taala mean by this? One of the objectives of Revelation is that people

00:40:59--> 00:41:36

will come to departments of alarm, it will send them with various questions. If you look at sort of the salon, they asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam around the room, what is the word mean? What is the Spirit? And you look at so they actually probably some of our money was stolen about the menstrual cycle of the woman and woman's pertaining to it. So people used to come and ask departments a lot of money and sell them various questions. And thus Allah subhanaw taala would answer these questions. Were the prophets of Allah wanting to send them through the Quran. So does Allah subhanho wa Taala explained everything that needed to be known through the

00:41:37--> 00:42:19

second portion of this ayah Allah subhanaw taala mentioned we're holding, meaning that it is a guidance. So now the Quran likewise, just as it is a clarifier for all things, it is the ultimate guidance as well, that if a person were to read and reflect upon the Quran, they would find guidance in it, that if you want to see what is the objective of your life, you find it in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the very end, I want to say that I did not create the jinn and mankind except for my worship. And obviously this is the greatest common question amongst the philosophers. Why an enormous

00:42:20--> 00:42:49

or why were we created to them they don't believe in Allah subhanaw taala but rather than just believe in Krishna itself, they believe why they ask why would we create it? What is our purpose upon this earth? Again, Allah subhanaw taala in his infinite wisdom and knowledge reveals the answer to this question that we want placed upon this earth except to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. And welcome to the third part of the saya, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that this Quran is a llama and a

00:42:51--> 00:42:59

a mercy and a bushel of meaning a glimmer of glad tidings to the Muslim in. So now how is the Quran a llama?

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

And how is it a giver of glad tidings, as for the Koran be a Rama, then if one were to reflect upon the ayat of the Quran again, I was

00:43:10--> 00:43:26

mentioned in various Ayah how the believers that if they are to do it, then they will have lives of peace and prosperity. Allah Subhana Allah mentions in supernatural, I believe it's 97 or 98.

00:43:28--> 00:43:31

When I'm in a solid, when I'm in a solid

00:43:37--> 00:43:39

was just a good deed.

00:43:40--> 00:44:22

And whether regardless of whether is whether he is a male or a female, as long as he is a believer, then we shall bestow upon him a good life, that Allah subhanho wa Taala promises ease and prosperity and comfort to those people who come with a man and come with good deeds. Now, let us take the example of the exact opposite. Those people who turn away from the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala actually will leave this for the fourth name of the Quran, when we get to admit in it. So I was mentioned in the last portion of this is when the colon is a bushel on putting slimming or a giver glad tidings to the believers. And it gives them glad tidings of gender and it gives them like

00:44:22--> 00:44:38

tidings of values of peace and prosperity, and it also gives them when tidings of when any injustice or any work that was done to them, then Allah subhanaw taala will bring about its fixing and will bring about the justice on humans.

00:44:40--> 00:44:59

So I certainly have given to the Quran is alpha Khan. And this is seen in the very first Ayat of surah Furqan. Allah subhanaw taala says, to learn unconditionally, for corn, then almost says Blessed is the one who sent upon his slave and for corn and for coin

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

can be translated as the criteria or the criteria. So Allah subhanaw taala, sent upon Mohammed Salah, while he was send them to this criterion or criteria in which things are distinguished, and things are categorized. And what do we mean by distinguished and categorized? We see this by those people who believe in the Quran, and those people who rejected the Quran. This is one form of criteria by those people who believe in the Quran and the believers and those who who rejected the Koran, artists believers. And likewise, we see that Allah subhanaw taala sent them what is the criteria like was in a punishment and reward by those people who believe in the moron, those people

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

who

00:45:42--> 00:46:26

will be punished. So verse the Quran was a criterion that to distinguish between the believers and believers is the descent and the man in the Quran. But if you don't believe in the Quran, and you don't believe that it was revealed to the public, and he was selling, and you don't believe in Allah subhana wa tada as the revealing that you are not a Muslim. So it was a distinguisher between the believers and the non believers, as well as other things as well as almost hundreds Allah blessed and he blesses those people who read it. So most people who read the Koran frequently are not like those people who read it, you know, seldom or rarely. So those of us, it differentiates the Quran,

00:46:26--> 00:46:34

those people who are raised to the highest levels of gender, and those people who are left at the lowest levels of gender due to the recitation of the Quran that they had.

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

Now, a fourth name that is given to the Koran is a vicar and this is mentioned in the ninth ayah of Sultan, Allah subhanaw. taala says in

00:46:48--> 00:47:06

the hospital, again, a very important iron and iron, which we will be discussing in quite some detail. Allah subhanaw taala says that indeed, we have a view of the Koran Indeed, we will build upon your Vicar And indeed We are the ones who will preserve it. So Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in

00:47:07--> 00:47:28

the Quran, that indeed we are the ones who have revealed as Vicar now there is breakdown, desire and the very beginning of us that is mentioned in that indeed, we as a plural have revealed the Quran, there are two opinions pertaining to what this actually means.

00:47:29--> 00:48:15

The first opinion and this is the opinion of the vast majority is that the national and the inner, the plural of indie is that it is the name of Allah subhanaw taala and magnification or glorification of Allah subhanaw taala below and even is known in English language. If you see how the Queen speaks in England, she was the first herself as we and you will find ministers when they speak, they always refer to themselves as we, meaning that they are glorifying themselves and magnifying themselves to be great human beings are venomous snakes. And he mentions now No, it means venomous Pantheon is glorifying and magnifying himself. And this was the opinion of the majority of

00:48:15--> 00:48:32

scholars. But there is another opinion and almost connotes, Allah knows best that this is even more accurate and not open is that when the term nano is mentioned in the Quran, then Allah Subhana Allah is referring to himself and the angels.

00:48:33--> 00:49:15

Now, how do we see this? We see this, that when Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the answer creation in the Hanukkah, Allah prioritizes. Indeed, we have created an enormous pile of dimensions, that indeed we have sent down. In all these actions, there are people or creations or journalist panels that actually are a part of it. Like in the center of the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah didn't directly speak to the prophets of Allah while he was set up in revealing the Koran, but rather be revealed to be who pointed out to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and even in the act of creation, Allah, Allah created Adam with his own two hands, which when we are creating, we come through our

00:49:15--> 00:49:59

parents, and likewise in other things as well. So she called us down, even Samia, he mentioned when this is the opening that is closer to the truth. And how will distinguish this is, is that when Allah subhana wa Jalla talks about worship, right? He doesn't mention and worship us. Why is that almost doesn't use the plural over here on Google glorification and, but rather he only says worship me. So this shows that Allah subhanaw taala is distinguishing between the two. Because if I was alone, and I wanted to go by and magnify himself, he could have said and worship us and obviously it would have meant Allah subhanaw taala but I was I was very meticulous in his words and very

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

Be precise in his words. So this when it came to words, or actions that include other creation like the angels or other men on this panel with the animations and when it comes to worshiping Allah Subhana Allah refers to himself alone. And this is more befitting from us panelboards Allah and Allah Subhana Allah Allah knows best. So, this is the first part of the ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the dynamism, the Decalogue and the meaning the reminder reminder, or that which is remembered. So now, others panels Allah mentions a very scary idea in Silla Baja.

00:50:39--> 00:50:44

And then I had to go as follows Allah, Allah says, woman,

00:50:46--> 00:50:51

banca Shu Yama, the pm at the AMA Cala De Lima

00:50:53--> 00:50:57

basura colloca, Danica, tuna, Sita Raka.

00:51:00--> 00:51:02

Allah, Allah mentions in this ayah

00:51:04--> 00:51:53

when he who turns away from my remembrance, and turns away from my reminder, that for him shall be a large a life of hardship and congestion. And he will be raised on Yom Okayama as someone who is blind, and he will say, Oh my Lord, why is it that I have been raised as someone who is blind, when I was able to see and Allah Subhana Allah will then rebuke this individual and we will build this person and say, that this our Is this our signs, this, our voices came to you, for necesita you forgot them, you were negligent of them, and you turned away from them. Forget that because your mittens and verse likewise today you will be neglected, you will be ignored and you will be turned

00:51:53--> 00:51:54

away from

00:51:56--> 00:52:40

Allah protect us from having such an abode of brothers and sisters, let us reflect upon the solution of this. Allah Subhana Allah mentions at the very beginning of this ayah Roman our victory and whoever turns away from my remembrance, and this remembrance is none other than the as the last panel refers to the war, in the hedger as a victory. So brothers and sisters, if you want to be on those people who get to see the noble face of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you want to be all those people who tasted the fruits of Paradise, and you want to be of those people who are not neglected and ignored on Yom Okayama that indeed turned back to the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala by

00:52:40--> 00:53:26

reciting his core. And what a great reminder, this is for the believers. So moving, going back to the island, we mentioned robust panel which either says in an afternoon agenda in the afternoon, so this is where we mentioned that the Quran is preserved by Allah subhanho wa Taala as a promise, Allah Subhana ones other revealed in the Quran as he promised that we will preserve the Quran. And we mentioned previously that this is one of the greatest blessings that the owner of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has been granted that Allah subhana wa Taala took it upon himself and put it as an America upon the angels to preserve the Quran. Whereas the previous religions did not have their

00:53:26--> 00:54:00

books preserved with the aid and help of Allah subhana wa Tada. I went rather than with somebody they had to do out of their own accord. So let's slow down and blessing someone by promising to preserve the Quran. And it is upon us again, to read the Koran and understand the Quran and implemented the Quran. This is what Allah subhanaw taala expects from us unless we deal with the difficult task of preserving the Quran up to himself. So if Allah subhanho wa Taala fulfills his side of the obligation, then why is it that we are heedless of our sight of the obligation

00:54:01--> 00:54:06

we 15 of the only fifth most common name of the Quran is Tenzin.

00:54:08--> 00:54:15

And this is mentioned in sort of around 192 Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:54:16--> 00:54:16

we're in

00:54:18--> 00:54:21

agony, that indeed is that which is descent.

00:54:23--> 00:54:59

From the Lord of all the worlds and Tenzin comes from Netherland means that which is which comes down and then Salah, which is a superior form of the verb, which means that almost the final data sent it down, but it didn't come down on its own accord, but rather Allah subhanaw taala sent it down. And again, this is you know, a lot of these is they have meanings behind them, which the average person will not notice. Now in this is how this is related to our kiddo. We know this is very pertinent to our kiddo, but we won't say pay attention to it when I was panel dynamic

00:55:03--> 00:55:44

Well it is indeed something that Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed. So we claim that the Quran is the speech of Allah subhanaw taala. So this ayah indicates where Allah subhanho wa Taala is that Allah subhana wa tada is an ultimate highness, he is in a meeting in highness. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is about his creation, and it is only by being above your creation when you send something down to them. So this is again it's very important to arcada as well. So you take a moment to reflect upon the verse of the Quran, you will find that Allah subhanho wa Taala indicates and hints at very strange things through the Quran, even though the average person may not notice them.

00:55:45--> 00:56:06

A sixth name on the Koran and this is the last name that we will suffice with. As we mentioned, there are many names of the Quran. But these are the six most famous either the most stupidity or those that are most common upon the tongues of the people and that is unknown. And this is mentioned in certain Isa I 174.

00:56:07--> 00:57:00

Allah subhanaw taala says Nazca Giacomo Hannah Morocco manzana la comme Noren bobina but Allah subhanho wa Taala says, all mankind there has come from you have cleaners come from your Lord, a clear proof and we have said upon you a bright light, then Allah subhanho wa Taala is referring to the Quran as unknown. And this is mentioned in certainly Sir, I 174. Now the notion of the Quran and this is something again, which panels Allah has blessed the people of the Quran with the panels Allah has blessed the people of the Quran with a light that is varied upon their faces, and brings a charm or a charisma upon their tongues. Again, a blessing that Allah subhanaw taala gave

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

specifically to those people who would say to the Koran often and try to understand the Koran and implement the Quran that Allah subhana wa tada reveals this leads to them. And it can also be understood that when Allah subhana wa tada refers to the Quran as unknown is in the form of a parable, that prior to the Quran, mankind was in darkness. And when the more it was revealed, then out of that darkness came light, the light of the court and through the lens of the Quran came to heat and Eman and the outcome of Islam and everything else. So, these are the six common names that the coin is referred to. And likewise you mentioned that the court is given many attributes as well.

00:57:46--> 00:57:58

The most famous of them is a Shiva that it is a cure. Then almost the final ones Allah offers a cure through code. And this cure is a cure for many things.

00:58:00--> 00:58:40

Firstly, the Quran is a form of cure, meaning that it is it can be used as a look here. And by Rokia we mean that the Quran cures and heals and this is by certain ions that are recited the most common of them are certain fatty have to go see certain colors, certain products and certain us these are the most things of them. When when a person recites the soil or these ions upon himself or one other individual he can cure by the will of Allah subhana wa tada such a person. And likewise, the Quran is a cure to ignorance, right.

00:58:44--> 00:58:59

dimensions in Indonesia, and I can't recollect the actual Beato the actual verses right now. But he mentioned that we'll jump to that we'll call shifo amarante fichter key Mustafa, Connie.

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

Danica

00:59:05--> 00:59:06

Danica dannemora, Bonnie

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

mentioned in these verses of poetry, that indeed ignorance is a deadly disease, and its cure lies in two things, muscle mineral kolani Omitsu nuttin, that it comes from a text or a text from the center. And likewise the doctor is that island which is Bernie, meaning that he is the scholar is the scholar that nurtures his students upon a good upbringing and a good understanding. So likewise, the Quran is described as a Shiva, it is a Shiva from ignorance, that ignorance is a disease I like was the last panel to either choose individuals from ignorance with the Quran. So that is one of the most famous attributes given to the Quran and with the lights

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

We'll take a small break right now inshallah, as I usually don't like to go over the one hour timeframe without having question and answers and taking a small break for myself and likewise for the audience as well. So if there any questions later and we'll take them, and if not, then we'll have a 10 minute break thereafter

01:00:27--> 01:00:28

on the

01:00:35--> 01:00:36

meaning of

01:00:38--> 01:00:40

the loss of English,

01:00:41--> 01:00:43

okay, where can I found this?

01:00:45--> 01:00:47

This is mentioned in much more than fatawa, but

01:00:49--> 01:00:51

specifically in Manhattan.

01:00:54--> 01:00:57

If you look it up in them, as mentioned there specifically,

01:00:58--> 01:01:38

to repeat the question the questioner asked that we mentioned in the wellness panel, it's either mentioned in the nationalism that Nicola does nothing over here has two possible meanings amongst the scholars that can mean a Darwin qualification and magnification of almost panatela that he refers to itself refers to himself in the poem, or it can mean that Allah subhanaw taala is including the angels in this act, when the angels will use in the revelation of the Quran, and in the creation of mankind. Whereas when Allah subhanaw taala talks about his worship, Allah subhanaw taala doesn't use nano or doesn't use the pearl, but rather he uses the single form where he always

01:01:38--> 01:02:15

says and worship me. So Chico is done with a meal. Allah mentioned that the wisdom behind this is that the angels are involved in the act of creation and in the axial revolution, where as in worship, it is only Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, right is worshiped. Allahu Donna. So with that, we'll take a 10 minute break and we'll come back inshallah at 352 with the lights on, let's try to stick to the time frame inshallah, because we started a bit late and let's make the most of our time. So we'll end up with that was Santa Monica. Welcome to life.
