What makes that a board Okay, is that when you have a thought about the Quran, you should be able to take it to someone who you can share it with, that has a little bit more knowledge and they can say you're onto something.
Wanted to ask Chris a question regarding to that board.
I've asked this question before, but it wasn't really answered properly or in a way that actually would help me. Because, therefore, I want to explain a little bit my, my context, okay, I converted to Islam many years ago. And
it helped me a lot to read the last book, and think a lot about it. So I listened to a lot of lectures, a lot of talks about, about Islam and Allah, and I learned a lot. And at the same time, I tried to read it myself, I tried to learn a little bit of Arabic. So I really wanted to know exactly what Allah telling me. So I was always thinking about it. And this actually helped me to understand the Quran better and to, let's say, come up with ideas. That turned out to be correct.
If you sometimes were not really correct, and but I found, I found out about this, but there was a lot that I that I saw, okay, actually, I understood this correctly, because I understood that lecture, I understood that thing. And then I could make my own opinion on this new verse that I read on the siia. And so the question, I'm always asking myself, because I learned or I was told that you shouldn't do to that book, if you don't know, the whole half seal. And that's actually my question, how much of the Tafseer is necessary to be able, or that it is permissible to do the to that border? Because at some point, there are some areas where I think, Okay, why should I go that deep in the
top secret? Because there is some,
because as you said, yourself, I mean, if you start studying, it all, takes a lot of time. So why should I hold myself back? And say, Okay, I can't do that, because I haven't read enough or something like that. So at what point can I say yes, I can do your question board. Thanks for your question. What's your name again?
So any other but yeah, a lot of Muslims now call me Musa. Okay, most I want to call you Giovanni. All right, because your mom likes that name. Yes. Yes. So I like it for okay.
And there's nothing that Islamic about your name. Okay. So,
great question. I think
the Quran is multiple subjects. And some of those subjects require background knowledge, not all of them. So when you come across those subjects, you probably will need some more tafsir knowledge then as compared to other subjects, probably more than often you will run into those cases in the in the Madani Quran. And more than an even most of whether you are on you should be able to grasp without a challenge. But some places, you might need to understand the event itself, because it's commenting on an event, or it's commenting on a legal matter that has a background to it. So there were you, essentially, you just need a little bit of background information. Now as far as the board is
concerned, I believe you shouldn't be doing to the board whether you know to see or not, even though it's healthier to do it with knowledge of tafsir. But what makes the board Okay, is that when you have a thought about the Quran, you should be able to take it to someone who you can share it with, that has a little bit more knowledge, and they can say you're onto something, and you're not, which is why I'd like to recommend there's a resource that one of my colleagues put together, I like it a lot. It's called Quran reflect.com. So I want you guys to make a note of that Quran reflect.com. If you're reading an IRA, and you have a thought about this idea, and you're not sure if you're onto
something or not, you can actually select the IO put your thought submit it to them deference to the students in the background, they can fact check your thought, and they can validate it for you without making it public first. And if it is validated, they can make it public so others can benefit from your reflection. And if it's not they can identify what where the problem lies, right because I don't one of the one of the issues of courses we should be engaged in what I say there's a QR code in the back of the Quran reflect booklet, you can use that to get to the website in sha Allah. So that's a resource for those of you that want to do active, your own database of the Quran
and you're wondering how can I get to the right but if I were to say oh, what's
allowed and what's not allowed Allah didn't put a condition so how can I
technically right Allah didn't say oh don't do to double on the Quran unless you like he didn't put prerequisites the scene has prerequisites or Aluma to see how prerequisites to something Something will also look to see principles of Tafseer right.
But we don't really have also looked at the bar
right which is why doctors are here but I and for him we did a series in Rome at the end of Ramadan, we called it how to reflect on the Quran. And we put that on YouTube. If you haven't seen it, you should check it out. It's a six part series called How to reflect on the Quran. And that might also help with your own contemplations to Chama. I hope that answers a little bit better.
I hope you guys enjoyed that video clip. My team and I have been working tirelessly to try to create as many resources for Muslims to give them first steps in understanding the Quran all the way to the point where they can have a deep, profound understanding of the Quran.
