We're live, we're live. It's below salatu salam ala Rasulillah are early he was happy he even said Mr. Lincoln would have been too late. I love it, I gotta

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

welcome to day one of the Dream Big intensive, I'm going to take a few minutes to explain the format of the class to use some important things that everybody here should know. Before we start taking our journey together,

00:00:33--> 00:01:13

the first thing I want you to know is class will begin every day at seven sharp if none of you are here, I will start at seven sharp if all of you are here, I will start at seven sharp there is no exceptions. So today because they were setting up, we have an extra five minutes taken, that will not happen again. Inshallah, I'll be here, actually, my plan is to be here by six o'clock every day. And I will be here setting up making sure everything's going well. The answer prayer here happens at 630. And right after the answer prayer, I'm going to be back here. So about 640 or so. And those first 20 minutes. If you have extra questions, something on your mind, something you'd like to

00:01:13--> 00:01:31

share, you have 20 minutes of freedom to ask me anything you like, that's not going to be on the mic. It'll be casual. So you can just ask any questions you like any discussion you want to have? That's your opportunity to get that's between 640 and 7pm 7pm. We start now, yes.

00:01:33--> 00:02:16

The flyer lied, I'm telling the truth, okay. It's, it's 7pm. Okay. And that's going to happen every day, inshallah I need the entire time. That's just what it is. The second thing, this is not a lecture. This is a class in a hotbar you're not supposed to speak because your good deeds get taken away. In Salah you're not supposed to teach to speak because you're an amateur to Allah, and you've cut off from the world. This is not a football. This is not a lecture. This is not a YouTube video. This is a class. You know what that means? You can interrupt me at any time. You don't even have to raise your hand or stop. I'm confused. I have a question. Etc. Anytime. I will not lose my train of

00:02:16--> 00:02:20

thought I will not get upset with you. It is your job to stop me like right now.

00:02:24--> 00:02:25

Can you you can't hear me.

00:02:28--> 00:02:30

You can't hear me clearly.

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

Okay, they're saying there's too much bass on the mic. They can't hear me clearly. Even though you did hear that.

00:02:40--> 00:02:41


00:02:43--> 00:02:45

They're trying hard to hear. Okay.

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

Let me is this better?

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

That's really loud, though.

00:02:51--> 00:02:58

Okay, it's less echo. Okay, fine. I'll hold it closer. Okay, so the first thing is what time are we starting?

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

And what am I hear for extra questions?

00:03:02--> 00:03:39

Six answer onwards. I'm all yours. Okay. 10 o'clock. Is that a sharp prayer here? After 10 o'clock, I'm going to run out of here as fast as I can, because I want to go home. Okay, so you have been for that time. And then after that, after I press a shot here, I'm going to jet to my car, and drive back and go to sleep. Because I need to bring my best energy to you the next day in Sharla. Okay. Now, this is an Arabic class. What that means is your questions cannot be about mortgages and Islamic financing and nail polish and beard length, and

00:03:40--> 00:04:04

or halal meat or McDonald's. That cannot be about that. Why? Because this is what in Arabic class and my job is to do the best I can to teach you the curriculum that I've developed in the best possible way. So I have to be 1,000,000% focused, and I expect that from you. That's the second thing. The third thing, homework. This is important.

00:04:06--> 00:04:06

You don't have any.

00:04:08--> 00:04:09

Because I don't trust you.

00:04:11--> 00:04:22

Even if I give you homework, you won't do it. You just you know when you give people homework the next day, the people that have a big smile on their face are the ones that are like another law who I nearly hit it on, and I didn't do it.

00:04:23--> 00:04:56

Many of you are working. Many of you have responsibilities at home. Making the sacrifice in the evenings is hard enough work. I do not expect you to have the time and focus to be able to do any homework assignments in this time. In fact, we're spending so much time together. This will feel like a continuous nightmare. I call it the Dream Program. But it's actually a nightmare. You feel like you never left. That's what it's gonna start feeling like when you come back every day. Okay, and there's plenty of review incorporated into the program already. So

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

the next thing taking notes

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

During the class taking notes,

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

don't take notes.

00:05:06--> 00:05:49

Don't take until I tell you to take notes. Don't take notes. Some of you are, you've never taken notes in your life. Your old notebooks from college and high school look like ancient drawings in a cave. That's what you were doing sitting in the classroom. Others of you meaning the sisters write everything down. You guys write everything now you you're like, if I sneeze, you write down Alhamdulillah. Like, that's your chronic note taking stop. Because no taking sets your brain on dictation, you're just trying to capture every word, you're actually not thinking about what I'm saying, you're too focused on trying to write everything down, because your anxiety that you'll

00:05:49--> 00:06:32

forget, later on, I understand your anxiety. And I've designed this course, taking that anxiety into account, I will take much better notes than you for this class. And for every single day, I've taken really nice notes already. And I will share them with you every night. At the end of the class, you're going to get an email, all of you that are signed up, you're gonna get an email, even the folks that are online, you're gonna get an email with a summary of that day's class. It's called a transcript. So there's going to be before 10pm, around 9:55pm, you'll get transcript day one, tomorrow, you'll get transcript day two, and so on and so forth. I don't give you homework, you know

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

that right?

00:06:33--> 00:06:55

But casually, casually, if you just read through that document, the next day, first, allow yourself to sleep, overcome the trauma of the class, allow yourself to forget a little bit. And then the next day is sometime before this class. If you just get a chance to read through that a little bit. It'll bring everything back.

00:06:56--> 00:07:06

And then you're ready for the next day. optimal performance. Okay. Now, I don't ask you to take notes for another reason. Because I don't trust your handwriting.

00:07:07--> 00:07:51

It If I gave you something to write in Arabic, chances are you can't even read it yourself later on. Because you wrote Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim, and it looks like Mandarin. So anything that had to be written down in Arabic, I have already written it down for you. So you don't have to worry about that your focus is on concepts. That's what you're so I'm What am I doing in this orientation? I'm telling you all the stresses that you have to let go of, because I need you focused on one thing, all your energy on one thing, and anything that gets in its path. I'm removing those obstacles from your path. Okay? No, I told you don't take notes until when.

00:07:53--> 00:08:33

Until I tell you why. Because sometimes, it takes me 10 minutes to explain a concept. When I'm done explaining the concept, I will make you write down two sentences about that concept, one or two sentences. But because you have the background of those 10 minutes, that one sentence or those two sentences are enough for you to remember everything we discussed you with me. If I gave you that sentence in the beginning, you have no idea what I just told you to do. But at the end, even that one sentence is the world. It's very, it'll be systematic for you that way. Okay.

00:08:34--> 00:08:40

Now, here's some other important things. How many people have studied some Arabic before or tried?

00:08:41--> 00:08:50

Okay, good. So how many people have studied with me before? A handful of you, okay. All right. So this is for everyone. Now, just I wanted to get a gauge,

00:08:51--> 00:09:24

you should be able to read the Quran in Arabic, even if you don't understand it, for this class, even if your dream is not perfect. Even if you are 18 and your bod and your cough are not perfect, you should still at least be able to read through the text. I will not be teaching you that. I'm building on top of that, right. So now we have to talk to you I have to talk to you about what exactly we're going to be doing and to understand that. I want you to know that there are three kinds of Arabic

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

good, nobody's writing down. Okay, good.

00:09:30--> 00:09:31


00:09:33--> 00:09:33


00:09:35--> 00:09:36

And classical.

00:09:38--> 00:09:51

I just want you to don't don't write this down. Just listen. There's three kinds of Arabic. What did I say here? Spoken. Standard and classical. Okay. I'm going to take that off the screen. Three kinds of Arabic.

00:09:53--> 00:09:53


00:09:55--> 00:10:00

that's not the order I gave you. No, no, no spoken Standard.

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


00:10:03--> 00:10:05

English is spoken all over the world.

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

But the English people speak in England is not the same as the English people speak in Scotland.

00:10:15--> 00:10:50

And the English they speak in Guyana, which is very different from the English that people speak in the West Indies, which is very different from the Americans. And the English people speak in Texas is very different from the English people speak in New York. I can tell you, the people that speak English in the South have a very different kind of vocabulary than the people that speak English in Massachusetts and in Boston area. English goes through lots and lots of changes, doesn't it? Okay. Well, you know what, the Arabic that people speak in Algeria

00:10:51--> 00:11:06

is very different from the Arabic that people people speak in Morocco, which is significantly different from the Egyptians, very different, which is very different from the Yemenis, which is very different from the Sudanese. All of them have a different dialect of Arabic? What kind of Arabic? Is that?

00:11:07--> 00:11:49

Spoken Arabic, spoken Arabic? Or do speakers hear people speak? Or do in Karachi? People also speak or do in Lahore? People also speak or doing fasula? But But is there a difference? Can you tell from one sentence? Can GMFCS lavas zoom like you can you tell immediately, that is not from Karachi, I can tell this guy's not from there. From the English from the English, you can just tell immediately, right? Just like and from the older you can tell immediately from the Arabic You can tell immediately, that spoken Arabic guess what we are not learning in this class. Spoken Arabic. We're not learning that in this class. There are many wonderful programs that teach that sort of

00:11:49--> 00:11:49


00:11:51--> 00:12:02

Across the United States, in different universities, you can specialize in dialects, you can learn the Iraqi accent, you can learn the egyptian arabic, you can learn them the proper studies in that.

00:12:03--> 00:12:49

However, we're also not going to be learning Standard Arabic, let me tell you what Standard Arabic is. It's similar to standard English, an article written in The New York Times, and an article published by the BBC in England, and an article published in an Indian newspaper in English. And an article written in a Bangladeshi, English, medium newspaper, or website are all what kind of English standard, anybody can read that and understand it, despite their differences in language, you understand? There's a common English, you can read a British author, you can read an American author, you can read a Scottish author, you can read an African author, if they wrote their book in

00:12:49--> 00:12:49


00:12:50--> 00:13:20

is standard English. That's, that's the common English. So Arabic also has a common Arabic. That's the Standard Arabic that's the Arabic you find in newspapers. It's the Arabic you find on media channels, or Jazeera, etc, that Standard Arabic, okay, that's the Arabic you find in the beginning of the hotbar, formal interviews, formal discussions, those are Standard Arabic, also, I will not be teaching you Standard Arabic,

00:13:21--> 00:13:25

I am going to be teaching you the building blocks of something else called what?

00:13:27--> 00:13:37

Very good classical Arabic, classical Arabic, you know what that means, by the end of this class class, you still cannot order some baklawa from an Arab restaurant in Arabic.

00:13:39--> 00:13:45

Because you can't use classical Arabic over there. Now, how many kinds of Arabic are there?

00:13:46--> 00:13:52

And what are we going to begin to learn in this class? classical Arabic. Now, let's take another step.

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

For let me make this bigger

00:13:57--> 00:14:00

for skills. Question.

00:14:04--> 00:14:12

I will explain a good question. What is the difference between standard and classical Arabic? What is the difference between English today

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

and English at the time of Shakespeare?

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

Is there a difference?

00:14:19--> 00:14:26

Over time, the expressions, the grammar, the sentence structure, did it go through changes?

00:14:27--> 00:14:46

Just the base stayed the same. But some things were differently said and differently spelled in Shakespearean English that is no longer alive or relevant today. Right? So you don't go to Starbucks and say has Tao possessive, a grande?

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

You can't use that anymore because that English is for that time you understand? So what happens to every language is over time as the world changes and different societies interact.

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

and technology changes, language changes. In fact, what happened to English even now standard English now, if you say to somebody that the president tweeted something insane, the president tweeted something insane. If somebody said that 30 years ago,

00:15:20--> 00:15:40

and they they wrote a piece, the president tweeted something insane. Would that make any sense? 30 years ago, 40 years ago? Would it make sense? No. Why? Because the technology had an impact on the language. If somebody told you in the early 90s, hey, you know, I saw your Facebook,

00:15:42--> 00:16:07

I saw your Facebook, you would think they're a serial killer, and they have a collection of cut out pictures of you. And that you that doesn't make any sense because the technology didn't exist. So these words did not exist, you understand? And the way we're using them didn't exist. The Arabic at the time of the Quran, the world was a certain way. And the Arabic was a certain way, did the world keep changing ever since.

00:16:08--> 00:16:28

And as the world kept changing ever since? Do you think the changing world has an impact on language? Right? So the standard keeps shifting as the world shifts. When I say classical Arabic, I'm trying to take you back to the standard of Arabic, before Islam, one,

00:16:29--> 00:16:34

before Islam became victorious, because actually for language let me before I go to this, before

00:16:35--> 00:16:43

Islam became victorious. Arabic was preserved in the desert, wasn't it?

00:16:44--> 00:17:28

And then, when Islam became victorious, we started taking over Roman territory and Persian territory and Asian territory and African territory. And all these different cultures are now accepting Islam. And they're all learning Arabic. Maybe 1000s of 1500 years ago, people are learning Arabic, like you're sitting here learning Arabic, right? Is there Arabic, high level or is it low level when they're starting? It's low level, and over time, the overall sophistication of Arabic is going down. Because people are just the majority of the people are not Arab. And they don't have the classical tongue. Just think of the way what local languages do we have here a call out some languages that

00:17:28--> 00:17:32

you say your grandmother speaks? I want to hear the grandmother's language. What are they?

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


00:17:36--> 00:17:37


00:17:40--> 00:17:40


00:17:42--> 00:17:42


00:17:44--> 00:17:44

or though?

00:17:47--> 00:17:47


00:17:48--> 00:17:50

Farsi? The Shaka?

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

Anybody else anything other than other languages here?

00:17:56--> 00:17:57

English Tamil?

00:17:59--> 00:18:05

Is it true that your grandmother's language was more sophisticated than the grandkids language?

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

Right? Did it change? Did they have a wider vocabulary that they appreciate poetry more? Did they have more grand words and verbs to use in their lives? And we just became

00:18:19--> 00:18:48

like lesser. So over time language, what happens to it? It gets simpler. And the ancient language was more rich and more dense and more poetic and more philosophical. And the Arabs they were out in the desert. They were out in the desert in the middle of nowhere and they had you know, you may have heard this before the Arabs were really proud of their language. You ever heard that before? You know one of the reasons the Arabs were so proud of their languages they didn't have anything else to be proud of.

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

What is going to be proud of what did they build?

00:18:52--> 00:19:29

What Colosseum did they build? What pyramids did they build? Before Islam? What were what were the Arabs doing? There were Bedouins and they had some empires that collapsed. But overall, the Arabs were an isolated people, especially in Hejaz. They were an isolated people. They were doing some trade, but they were no superpowers. They were not players on the world scene. So they were isolated. And they were in what kind of a climate is Hejaz? What kind of environment natural environment is it? It's a desert. In the desert. Do you have a lot of scenery or a lack of scenery? You have a lack of scenery, you get to see the stars a lot.

00:19:30--> 00:20:00

You get to see the desert but not much else. So you know what happens in that environment. Your imagination is filled with the stars. Your imagination is filled with the desert landscape. You come up with 100 different words for the horse. You come up with lots of different words to describe a camel and a sword. Right you have entire genres of poetry dedicated to the stars, naming each star you know this is what they did because their imagination became wild because they were living in such a an isolated kind of world

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

rolled isolated kind of environment when Islam one did it say like that?

00:20:06--> 00:20:23

No, we became an international multicultural multi continental religion, didn't we? So there's the language is getting affected, isn't it? I'll give you as a joke but it's reality with some of the worst English spoken on planet Earth is spoken in New York City.

00:20:24--> 00:20:46

There's also spoken in London, some of the worst on earth. You know why? Because these cities became cultural centers where people from all over the world flew in so they were all learning English as a second language. And so the overall English went down and it keeps going down it keeps doing now some of the worst Arabic you will ever hear in your life is in Makkah

00:20:48--> 00:21:06

some of the worst Arabic why? Why is the worst Arabic in Makkah. I was so excited the first time I went to Makkah after studying Arabic I was like urine. As you don't Fusa the local Arabiya, My Allah Arab fibula to Quran be Makkah. And I go, and I see

00:21:08--> 00:21:22

a Senegalese woman arguing with a Bangladeshi customer at one of those shops and the blue fishy guy and she's Arab. She's seen uglies. He's Bangladeshi. And she's saying to him, by God, I'll punch it. I'll punch it al.

00:21:25--> 00:21:33

What's going on here and then I went to an Arab, I didn't know where to go. I lost my way. Couldn't find the hotel couldn't get data on my phone. I said, Dana. He goes in Paluxy.

00:21:37--> 00:21:39

See, this is not Arabic.

00:21:42--> 00:22:31

When I say classical, I mean the Arabic before Islam became victorious, basically Arabic before it got contaminated by other cultures, you understand? And actually, this was one of the most important preservation movements in early Islam. We didn't just preserve the Quran. We didn't just preserve Hadith, we actually made an equally powerful movement to preserve the Arabic of the desert. Not the Arabic of Baghdad. Not the Arabic of Kufa, not the Arabic You know, in Basra, but the Arabic in the Hijazi desert. How are the Bedouins talking? How do they use that word? You may have heard romanticized stories about scholars who spent 20 years traveling the desert to seek one of their

00:22:31--> 00:23:08

own, they were seeking one of the knowledge they were seeking is just to sit around and watch people talk. Just so they can document they use that word this way they use this word this way. They use this word this way. And we documented entire lexicons like Lisanna, Lara and Albatron. Mohit, if you wonder you will get there. So what happens when you study a word in the English dictionary? You study a word in the English dictionary you go to the dictionary tells you what it means and how is how many ways you can use it. When you go to an Arabic lexicon, you'll see the word. And then you'll see the way the Arabs and the deserts used to use it. And then somebody found a poem in which they

00:23:08--> 00:23:19

use that word. And the different variations of that word, you get an entire story of that word. Every word becomes a story. That's what kind of Arabic

00:23:20--> 00:23:40

classical Arabic, that's classical Arabic, and Standard Arabic and classical Arabic have a millennium and a half between them. So they have many things in common. But many things are also what different. Many things are the base is the same. The base is the same, but classical Arabic is much more rich. Yes question.

00:23:56--> 00:24:03

Okay, so it seems like classical Arabic is way more complicated and harder to learn. So why wouldn't they just make it easy?

00:24:05--> 00:24:51

Yes, it's dead. Islam kept it alive. The Quran kept it alive. But what what are what scholarship did in Islam is amazing. We preserved the ancient grammar, we preserve the ancient vocabulary, and we passed it down generation after generation. So even a scholar studying in India, a scholar studying in Indonesia, a scholar studying in Taiwan, a scholar studying anywhere in the world. When they're studying Arabic, they go back to what sources, the classical sources now the problem was the classical sources or classical sources, they're really hard. It really hard, really complicated stuff. My mission is to start you off at the super basic level, build your foundation and get you

00:24:51--> 00:25:00

ready for more and more difficult challenges. But by the time you get to the hard stuff, it's already easy for you because the foundation is solid and

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

The hardest part of the entire classical Arabic journey, I would argue the hardest part is two things. We are not taking any notes yet. No notes yet. The hardest part of classical Arabic study are two things called No. And slough. That's the hardest part. Everything else after that piece of cake, don't write this down hard on the lake. No.

00:25:24--> 00:25:36

The hardest part of learning Arabic is what two things now when it's not okay, this is okay. Now you already know how to read the Quran. But you want to take your first steps you got to learn these two weird words. Now who answered the question?

00:25:40--> 00:25:42

Classical classical.

00:25:44--> 00:25:57

So, what does that one self mean? Arabic is actually two things are the hardest part of it is two things number one self let me tell you what number one self mean. Basically, I'm going to write an English sentence down for you

00:26:17--> 00:26:17


00:26:21--> 00:26:26

I was teaching Arabic My class was late. They avoided eye contact with me. Because late comers they just

00:26:28--> 00:26:28

right. Okay.

00:26:30--> 00:26:31

Where are the words for myself?

00:26:33--> 00:26:34


00:26:35--> 00:26:38

where else? My me.

00:26:39--> 00:26:42

Me know these. We don't have pronoun confusions here.

00:26:43--> 00:26:50

The three pronouns are myself or I, my end. Me. That's it. Okay. So, no,

00:26:51--> 00:27:10

if you had a picture next to the word I, it would be my picture. If you had a picture next to mine, it would be my picture. If you had a picture next to me, it would also be my picture. So maybe I should say my was teaching Arabic. I class was late. They avoided eye contact with my

00:27:12--> 00:27:35

what will be the problem with by the way, if you spoke like that, somewhere in Jackson Heights, somebody understands you in New York. Okay. However, what will be the problem with this? If I move them around? You know what the problem would be? You're using incorrect now who do work for you? You're using incorrect What? No, who is basically grammar.

00:27:36--> 00:27:42

Now who is basically what? Grammar? Okay, so if I say I teach did

00:27:44--> 00:27:47

so. So goodly

00:27:50--> 00:27:53

okay, I teach it. It's so goodly. That would be bad. What?

00:27:55--> 00:28:09

That's bad. Now, you're with me? The hardest thing about classical Arabic is what getting the knuckle right grammar, right. Okay. Now, but I gave you two words that are hard. What are the two words?

00:28:10--> 00:28:22

Now when one son, I'm going to give you not Arabic cell for example. I'll give you an English song. For example. Somebody says, What do you do for a living? And I say I am a

00:28:23--> 00:28:24

teach them inator?

00:28:30--> 00:28:33

What should I have said, I'm a

00:28:34--> 00:28:34


00:28:36--> 00:28:48

The word is teach. And if you do the act of teaching, you become a teacher. But I had just seen when I was I was influenced by the movie Terminator. So I wanted to become a teacher monitor.

00:28:49--> 00:28:58

Okay. Or somebody says to a scholar, what do you do? And he says I am an ACCA ACCA

00:29:00--> 00:29:01

dimer addition

00:29:04--> 00:29:08

you could be an academic. Or you could be an academic addition.

00:29:10--> 00:29:14

You know what that is? That's not bad. You know what? You know what that is? That's bad. What?

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

about slavery?

00:29:17--> 00:29:29

The word should have been academic, which we're making it into academic edition and Terminator. You with me? Songs means there's a system by which you create new words.

00:29:30--> 00:29:38

And you have to learn that system to to know when are you going to use teacher? And when are you going to use Academic?

00:29:39--> 00:29:52

You with me? That's a problem of not know, but a problem of self. So now who is more about now who is more about the sentence, isn't it? Now who is more about the sentence and sort of is more about the word?

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

Right using the right word would be Soph using the right kind of word

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

Word in the right kind of sentence. That would be why

00:30:04--> 00:30:11

that would be no. Okay, no, no who is how do you use the right word in the right place in the right sentence? So it's more focused on the sense. Okay, now,

00:30:12--> 00:30:21

last part of the introduction. This has been long enough of an introduction for skills to learn any language.

00:30:22--> 00:30:32

I'm going to take your vote on this there are four there is no fifth. I want you to I want to hear from you. What do you think are the four skills if you had them I would say you know that language

00:30:34--> 00:30:39

Okay, I'll say listening comprehension

00:30:40--> 00:30:45

not just listening but listening comp because you could listen to an Arab talk to you and you be like,

00:30:46--> 00:30:54

I mean, you're listening but without comprehension so I would say number one, the first one is what listening comprehension Okay, second one.

00:30:57--> 00:30:58


00:31:00--> 00:31:02

because you're reading Quran right now to write

00:31:03--> 00:31:04

thank you

00:31:05--> 00:31:07

reading with comprehension

00:31:08--> 00:31:16

Isn't it because reading without comprehension, mashallah the OMA is very good at it. We're very good at it. Okay.

00:31:18--> 00:31:19

What do you think the third one is?

00:31:24--> 00:31:27

Speaking I would say properly.

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

Because you could come up with some mixed salad of Arabic and say,

00:31:33--> 00:31:38

you know, just whatever word you know, in Arabic, you could just say and say I, I speak with Arabic brother.

00:31:39--> 00:31:45

You want to say I need to go to a hotel? Mashallah. Alhamdulillah hotel, huzzah. La La, he went to LA Roger, when

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

I started.

00:31:49--> 00:31:56

You could make word salad. But you're not speaking I'm saying speaking what? Properly? Yes, young man.

00:31:58--> 00:32:01

Ah, very good. Writing properly. Excellent job.

00:32:02--> 00:32:03

Writing properly.

00:32:04--> 00:32:24

That's it for, for listening comprehension, reading comprehension, speaking properly and writing properly. Okay. So if you are learning Spanish, these four skills, you're good at Spanish, you have these four skills in German, you have these four skills in Farsi, Arabic, doesn't matter. These are the four skills.

00:32:25--> 00:32:45

If you go to any university and get a degree in a language, what force what skills? Will they focus on? All four? Isn't that true? How many people here in the computer science or the tech industry at all? Okay, here's a question for you. Two of these. Two of these are data input. And two of these are data output.

00:32:46--> 00:32:51

Can you tell me which two of these are data input? And which two of these are data output? Yes, young man.

00:32:56--> 00:33:11

Very good listening and reading his data. Input, the information is going in your ear, the information is going through your eyes, the data is going inside you. Right and you're processing it and making sense of it. And which to our output.

00:33:12--> 00:33:22

Speaking properly, you have to produce a sentence you have to come up with something yourself and writing you have to come up with something yourself. You with me? The first two are what?

00:33:24--> 00:33:29

Input the second to our output. Excellent. By the way, what time is Muslim? I want to keep track of time.

00:33:30--> 00:33:42

In 15, okay, I better be done with this intro quickly. This is the longest intro I've ever done. Because I want to get right to work. I haven't we haven't started any work yet. But I do want you to have the right base and understanding. Okay, so

00:33:44--> 00:34:12

if you're studying Arabic as a Muslim, and you're, I would argue the number one motivation you have is you want to feel something when you hear the Quran being recited. And you want to feel something when you read the Quran, you want to connect with the text either when listening or when reading so when we want to work on our Arabic as Muslims, even though it's nice to have all four skills, which two skills become a priority.

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

listening and reading become a bigger priority. And the more those skills develop, we start feeling like a more of a connection with the Quran. Now, what a lot of language programs do is they start with speaking and writing.

00:34:30--> 00:35:00

So they will teach you my name is this I love chicken, what's your name? Do you love chicken etc. So when they do that you feel good because you're creating producing what output but after a year of studying that you open the Quran and you still don't feel yourself connected to what the language because your focus was not input your focus was output and plus those kinds of programs are always teaching Standard Arabic first, because standard error

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

because what we use among Muslims today I speak Standard Arabic to a good extent, I communicate with my Arab friends and Standard Arabic. That's my, that's how I talk to them or I write to write them emails and communicate with them. But to me, for my students, that is a later priority, I will get you there. But if that's what you're really interested in, you want to be able to speak in Arabic and write in Arabic, and that's your focus, then you're in the wrong class. The purpose of this class, I call it the Dream Big program, because I believe the dream of the majority of the Ummah is to connect directly to the Quran when the Quran is being recited. You with me? So our focus is going

00:35:41--> 00:35:51

to be on listening and reading. So far, so good. So I'm going to erase the bottom two. Now. Now you understand why I'm not making you write anything down. Why not?

00:35:52--> 00:35:58

Because not your focus. I'm not making you speak any Arabic? Because that's not your focus. Your focus is the top two.

00:36:00--> 00:36:04

Now between those two, let me tell let me ask you this. I'll take your vote on this too.

00:36:06--> 00:36:11

Which one do you think is harder listening and understanding or reading and understanding which one is harder?

00:36:13--> 00:36:17

Good. Listening is harder. Does anybody have any thoughts on why that's harder?

00:36:21--> 00:36:23

time there's a hand back there young man go ahead. Speak out loud.

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

What did he say?

00:36:31--> 00:36:32

They can't hear me.

00:36:33--> 00:36:34

They talk weirdly

00:36:37--> 00:36:38

the speed

00:36:40--> 00:36:47

the car is going daddy Kalki tabula rasa Buffy with a little more terrain and you just learned valleca in the class and you're Danica.

00:36:48--> 00:36:51

And he's three records litter Allahu Akbar. You're like that Ricardo.

00:36:53--> 00:37:17

He's not like that. Lika you got that? That was in class al Kitab. Who, by the way, that's not far. loughrea But Allah you remember la mala? Everybody's good. But now okay, labor? Does he do that? No, he's moving at the speed that he's moving. And you can't keep up. Because you're still taking the time to process your processor is still slow. But when you are reading who decides this, the speed

00:37:18--> 00:37:20

you do Danika I'm just gonna stay here for a little bit.

00:37:24--> 00:37:32

Let me open up my notes. I got this got this next word. By the time that taraweeh is over, you're done with iron number one.

00:37:34--> 00:38:05

Right? So I am not concerned with listening too much yet. I am more concerned with what reading because once your reading gets really good, naturally, you know what's gonna start happening. Your listening is start to get good, it's gonna start to getting better and better. So we started with four skills. And we're down to what one which makes our ability to focus in this class. All the more easy. Well, let me ask you, I've been talking about a lot of things. But this is a class not a football.

00:38:06--> 00:38:08

How many kinds of Arabic are there?

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

What are they?

00:38:11--> 00:38:17

Spoken? Standard? Classical? Which one are we gonna start to learn?

00:38:18--> 00:38:21

Good classical. What are the hardest things to learn about classical

00:38:23--> 00:38:50

Nahu inside of one of these is about how a world word is spelled about how a word is spelled. Which one is that? Good. Solid. One of these is about how a sentence works. That's No, no who is by the way harder than self. That was harder than so it's not a piece of cake. Nothing. Okay. I'm going to focus most of our energy on now in this class. Most of it. Now we get to the class itself. What time does it begin?

00:38:52--> 00:38:55

Seven o'clock. What time is open free review?

00:38:57--> 00:38:59

640 What am I emailing you every day?

00:39:02--> 00:39:05

Transcript good. Now we can start class.

00:39:07--> 00:39:09

Again, no writing yet.

00:39:22--> 00:39:26

No writing yet don't write it down. I see you sister.

00:39:29--> 00:39:30

brothers don't have that problem.

00:39:33--> 00:39:35

Take notes. Okay.

00:39:37--> 00:39:44

Okay. There are three kinds of words in Arabic. What are they? What are they write down ism. Fear ill health again, what are they?

00:39:47--> 00:40:00

I'm going to define them for you. We're not going to use English terms so much. I'm going to define them in Arabic or in without giving you a term in English. I'll start with how to that's the heart that's the easiest one. How does the easy

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

Just 100 is a word that makes no sense.

00:40:05--> 00:40:06

Like your brother,

00:40:08--> 00:40:13

a word that makes no sense. Until there's another word after it.

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

How does a word the definition is a word that makes no sense unless another word comes after it. So, if you get in a taxi, and you say the taxi driver says, where to Governor? And you say, to

00:40:33--> 00:40:34

to walk,

00:40:35--> 00:40:37

or do you say to do?

00:40:39--> 00:40:41

This is the number down to

00:40:42--> 00:41:08

two by itself. Makes no sense. So two would be a what? Have it's kind of like prepositions in English. Does a make sense by itself, the makes sense by itself in at with those words on his on their own, they don't make any sense. And similar to that it's not only prepositions in Arabic, so I'm not going to use the word preposition. I'm going to stick with the definition how to is what what did I say?

00:41:10--> 00:41:12

A word that makes no sense unless

00:41:13--> 00:41:18

another word comes after it. Okay, that's how fine two definitions left fearing.

00:41:22--> 00:41:49

Fear is any word that is either telling you that it happened in the past, or it's telling you that it's happening in the present, or it's telling you that it's going to happen in the future. So a word that gives you time, a word that gives you time of some kind, either the past or the present. It's stuck in time, the past or the present or the future. What do we call that in English?

00:41:51--> 00:41:53

Verbs Very good. Some of you call them webs

00:41:55--> 00:41:57

to gives away where you're from verbs. Yes, ma'am.

00:42:00--> 00:42:05

The live feed is not on it's not working. My tech team is also not working.

00:42:09--> 00:42:10

Help. Okay.

00:42:12--> 00:42:28

So the fill is a word that's either in the past or the present or the future, there's going to be a confusion and hour from now. So I'll help you solve that confusion already. I'll preempt a strike. Okay, here's what it is.

00:42:29--> 00:42:35

Eight slept will work.

00:42:37--> 00:42:37


00:42:39--> 00:42:41

And yesterday.

00:42:42--> 00:42:44

What do you think about eight? Is that a fair?

00:42:45--> 00:42:48

Because it's stuck in the past good. Slept?

00:42:49--> 00:42:53

Yes. Because it's an act that happened in the past will work.

00:42:55--> 00:42:56

Future drinking?

00:42:58--> 00:43:01

That's happening in the present. What about yesterday?

00:43:04--> 00:43:06

Yesterday is not a fairy.

00:43:08--> 00:43:09


00:43:10--> 00:43:53

is not a fairy. Tomorrow is also not a fairy. You know why? Because these are the names of days. They're not the they're not stuck in that time. They're naming a time. So they're still names. Actually, the word for the day that came before today is what the name of it is. Yesterday, the name of this day is today and the name of the day that's coming. Next is tomorrow. So they're not actually words stuck in time. There are words for certain times. There are words for certain times, so don't be confused. Oh, but yesterday's in the past? Yes, it is. But it's not a fear and it's not a feeling. Okay, well, how about this

00:43:59--> 00:44:01

what do you think? understands

00:44:06--> 00:44:07


00:44:09--> 00:44:13

it's happening right now. It's happening right now. So it's okay, so what's the fair then?

00:44:15--> 00:44:17

Easy definition, a word in the

00:44:18--> 00:44:22

past present? What's the how if I forgot I forgot.

00:44:25--> 00:44:31

A word that doesn't make any sense until there's another word that comes after it. There was a third thing.

00:44:32--> 00:44:44

Good isn't there are two definitions of ism. I'll give you the easy definition. That'll give you the hard definition. Here's the easy definition. If it's not a fatal and it's not a hard it's an awesome

00:44:47--> 00:44:47

it's true though.

00:44:49--> 00:44:53

So when you said when you heard yesterday, I put yesterday on the screen right?

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

Okay. Is that a huff? Because it makes sense. Is that

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

A Farrell

00:45:02--> 00:45:03

know what's left.

00:45:04--> 00:45:09

Yesterday is innocent. Let's use that first definition some more. If I say Apple

00:45:11--> 00:45:12


00:45:15--> 00:45:21

No, by the definition I gave you. It's not a half. Because when someone says Apple I say Okay, makes sense. Yeah, Apple.

00:45:22--> 00:45:30

It's not stuck in the past, present or future. Right? So that's not it either. Well, there's an infinite what's happening? What's happening?

00:45:32--> 00:45:33

All they're no longer reserved.

00:45:35--> 00:45:38

Okay, yeah. Okay. What was I saying something about Arabic?

00:45:40--> 00:45:40


00:45:43--> 00:45:45

Sure. In English

00:45:47--> 00:45:48

and Arabic nah.

00:45:49--> 00:46:10

They need something after we say in English, I know who you're speaking to. But in Arabic, you cannot say, I know who you're speaking to. This is why your Arab friends when they learn English, they don't like using too at the end of a sentence because they feel like it's an orphan. It needs something after it. I know who are you speaking to him?

00:46:12--> 00:46:14

You know, when they do that at the end?

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

What you are talking about it.

00:46:18--> 00:46:31

When they do that, it they're not. It's not because they speak bad English. It's because they're thinking in Arabic and when Arabic You can't just say about and just say nothing. That makes no sense. You have to put something after it'll say about it.

00:46:32--> 00:46:38

Okay, so they add that pronoun. Now, tell me about the apple. Is it a half?

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

Is it a fit? And somebody says no, but I ate it yesterday. That's in the past. My Apple is in the past?

00:46:47--> 00:46:50

No. Well, that's not your story doesn't matter.

00:46:51--> 00:46:52

So Apple must be a what?

00:46:54--> 00:46:57

Good lesbianism. Now let's look at the hard definition of Islam.

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

Again, no writing down yet. No writing down yet.

00:47:05--> 00:47:07

Is some could be a person.

00:47:09--> 00:47:12

Third grade English is some could be a person.

00:47:14--> 00:47:15


00:47:16--> 00:48:09

thing we're gonna keep going. Idea. adjective, adverb, and more. Oh, that's a long definition. Let's go through it. Person. Place. Thing. Idea. By the way, person, place thing idea. That's what they call a noun in English. They call that what? A noun? Should I call it some a noun? No, because if I called him a noun, it would only be those four things. But it's those four things. No, it's him as a person, a place a thing an idea. What else? An adjective and adverb. It's okay if you don't know what an adverb is. I know for many of you English class was like dental surgery. It's okay. I'll explain don't just look at the word right now. Don't Don't be intimidated. Even adjective you know

00:48:09--> 00:48:24

what an adjective is. That's fine. And then and on top of that, there's also another one and more. Even more so ism is a lot of stuff. Actually, it's pretty hard. But let's make sure we understand let's give example of person

00:48:25--> 00:48:28

so we have something in our head person call it out.

00:48:29--> 00:48:32

Let's start as very creative. Really thinking out of the box.

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


00:48:36--> 00:48:39

Mohammed very Islamic Very good. Salallahu Salam

00:48:40--> 00:48:46

00:48:55--> 00:48:57

Ciao, China. Okay.

00:48:58--> 00:49:02

00:49:04--> 00:49:06

It's that way you take a left.

00:49:09--> 00:49:10


00:49:12--> 00:49:14

Yo, yo, I like it.

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


00:49:16--> 00:49:18

Chair car.

00:49:19--> 00:49:20

For some people. Their car is a person.

00:49:22--> 00:49:23

It happens.

00:49:24--> 00:49:26

Okay, here's the hard one idea.

00:49:29--> 00:49:31

Islam is an idea. Very good.

00:49:32--> 00:49:32

What else?

00:49:34--> 00:49:34


00:49:36--> 00:49:40

Education. Education is an idea. Very good. What else?

00:49:44--> 00:49:44

Which ism

00:49:46--> 00:49:51

secularism, secularism. Okay, young man all the way in the back. Give me an idea.

00:49:52--> 00:49:55

Hadith. Cool idea. Yes.

00:49:57--> 00:50:00

Christianity is the name of a religion. It's an idea. It's a set of ideas.

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

Yes, sure. But what else? Yes.

00:50:03--> 00:50:05

00:50:07--> 00:50:14

Science is an idea. Very cool. Yeah. Theory is an idea. It can also be sleeping.

00:50:16--> 00:50:33

Drinking, the idea of it. The thing where you get stuck with idea, let me give you something. Most ideas, many ideas, not all, but most ideas have some kind of shun at the end, like education and submission and fruition and tuition. Yeah.

00:50:35--> 00:51:15

I'll get to that. And they can they can have an answer at the end like acceptance, and tolerance, right? They'll have that, right. Sometimes they have what else they if they start with a to like to eat, or to cry, those are ideas to cry to because it's a combination of words, but that's an idea. And the tricky thing is many ideas can also be with an AI N G. But the problem with the ing is we already used ing before somewhere else. Where did we use it? Fair enough. So now let's look at this. I am eating.

00:51:17--> 00:51:19

Right? And I love eating.

00:51:22--> 00:51:32

Okay, I am eating and I love eating. Which one of these is a feral? And which one of these is an essence?

00:51:34--> 00:51:37

The first one is a how do you know?

00:51:40--> 00:51:42

Present but I love eating.

00:51:44--> 00:51:49

It's an idea. How will you know if it's this is still confusing to you. I have a solution for you.

00:51:50--> 00:51:54

If you see an ing word, and you can replace it with ice cream.

00:51:55--> 00:51:59

If you can replace it with what ice cream, then it's an idea.

00:52:01--> 00:52:07

So if you say I am ice cream. And you agree with that, see me after class. I know a couple of psychologists in the area.

00:52:09--> 00:52:23

But if you say I love ice cream, does that make sense? So the English language is a little weird. Sometimes the ing is a fear and sometimes the ing is an ism. So if I say they went

00:52:24--> 00:52:28

they are they hated hiking?

00:52:31--> 00:52:31

What do you think?

00:52:34--> 00:52:37

Huh? ism? Sure, sure why?

00:52:39--> 00:53:08

Because you could put ice cream and they hated ice cream. What kind of evil people would do that. But they do. Some people do that. They hit it ice cream. So yes, ing will be confusing. And sometimes it will start it's an ing it's a ferret. And so you know, this is one of those ice cream IMGs. So we'll call those the ice cream ing. Okay. So sleeping? Could be if I just gave you sleeping without any context. What's your answer? If I say is this an SM or a feral or a huff? What would your answer be?

00:53:10--> 00:53:19

Could be a feral could also be a isn't you with me? Okay, let's see whose memory is really good. And is some could be a

00:53:21--> 00:53:21

that's one.

00:53:23--> 00:53:23

That's two

00:53:26--> 00:53:27


00:53:28--> 00:53:33

Adjective. Nice. Anything more? Okay.

00:53:35--> 00:53:44

We did person we did place we did thing. We did idea. Now what are we going to do? Adjective a blue car. What's the adjective?

00:53:45--> 00:53:50

A large hall. What's the adjective? A loud microphone. What's the adjective?

00:53:52--> 00:54:03

And old house? What's the adjective? Good. Good. Colors are adjectives sizes, adjectives. Numbers can be adjectives. 50 people. 50 is the adjective. You with me?

00:54:05--> 00:54:14

And so adverbs or adjectives are just descriptions, aren't they? They're just descriptions, and we'll dig into them when we start learning the Arabic anyway. Let's talk about adverbs.

00:54:15--> 00:54:16


00:54:18--> 00:54:23

adverbs don't write this down. Are all the Lee's

00:54:24--> 00:54:25

except Bruce.

00:54:29--> 00:54:33

Okay, I accept Bruce and love.

00:54:35--> 00:54:35


00:54:36--> 00:54:37

What do I mean?

00:54:39--> 00:54:40


00:54:41--> 00:54:41

is a li.

00:54:42--> 00:54:54

Happily, slowly, quickly, loudly, angrily, reluctantly, boring boringly. All the leaves. The only loose leaves that are not adverbs are what?

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

Bruce Lee en. Lovely. You know why? Bruce Lee is not an ad

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

addictive because Bruce Lee is a

00:55:03--> 00:55:13

well they're all listeners. But Bruce Lee is not an adjective adverb because Bruce Lee is a person and lovely is not an adverb, adverb because lovely is and

00:55:15--> 00:55:17

what a lovely thing to say.

00:55:18--> 00:55:21

What a lovely wrong answer you just gave me.

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


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


00:55:27--> 00:55:42

Because you don't say for example, and by the way, if you want love to be an adverb, it would have to be lovingly not lovely. You don't say the grandma hugged her drunk granddaughter, lovely. That means the granddaughters name is lovely.

00:55:43--> 00:55:58

Lovingly, so different. So easy definition of adverb all lilies except Bruce and love is no need to get tech. This is not what your English teacher taught you. The state in which the act occurs concurrently with the act and define.

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

Just don't confuse it with Bruce and love. And you'll be good with adverbs. Okay. And what else is there?

00:56:08--> 00:56:14

person go through it person plays thing. Idea, adjective.

00:56:16--> 00:56:17


00:56:18--> 00:56:20

Good and more.

00:56:22--> 00:56:31

You know what? I'll tell you more later. There's more to it. We can wait for it. Now we have three definitions. What are the three words I just defined?

00:56:33--> 00:57:07

ism. Fit ill. Health. What is the definition of ism, including a call it out again, it's okay. person, place thing. Idea. Adjective adverb more, by the way, some of you come from very high elite families. Like I was saying last night you come from a good family and you are used to you know, your bourgeois you know, status quo. So when I say call it out, you sit there and say, Make me I shall not join these peasants.

00:57:10--> 00:57:24

So you just sit there quietly. And then there are others of you who are totally zoned out, but you feel like you're left out. So when everybody's saying person, please thing. Idea. You're like, ha, ha ha.

00:57:26--> 00:57:52

But do try to participate. I need you to stay alive. This is not a hook by it's not a lecture. It's a class, which means you will only learn when you learn to let your embarrassment go and speak out loud and make mistakes. Mistakes are glorious. Okay? Isn't is a what? Let's hear it. person, place, thing, idea, adjective, adverb, and more. There's another definition of ism.

00:57:54--> 00:57:59

If it ain't have an innate fail, it's gotta be.

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

What's the definition of failed?

00:58:04--> 00:58:13

Any word that happened in the past? Or is happening in the present or happening in the future? There's another definition of fail.

00:58:15--> 00:58:16

If it ain't a heart,

00:58:17--> 00:58:24

and an ADA ism, there's got to be a parallel, what's a half other than your cousin?

00:58:26--> 00:58:28

A word that makes no sense.

00:58:30--> 00:58:33

Unless there's another word after it, what's the other definition of how

00:58:35--> 00:58:50

it was not an ism. It's not a federal, it's got to be held. When I open up the Quran I start with the Fatiha I end with a nurse. Every word I read in the entire Quran is either in Assam or a feral or a horse. And that's it.

00:58:51--> 00:59:05

There is nothing else there's no fourth kind of word. Every word is either an Islam or a feral or a cough. It would be if I say praise and thanks belongs to Allah.

00:59:07--> 00:59:13

Praise and thanks belongs to English. Can you tell me what praises

00:59:15--> 00:59:17

because it's a what Okay, so there's lots of things which is some is it

00:59:18--> 00:59:20

it's an idea very good. What's and

00:59:22--> 00:59:22


00:59:24--> 00:59:27

can't make sense without anything else. Thanks.

00:59:29--> 00:59:32

Idea Very good. Belongs

00:59:34--> 00:59:36

ethereal. Why?

00:59:37--> 00:59:40

It's in the present, okay to

00:59:41--> 00:59:51

Allah and we don't use the word person for Allah. But Allah is the being the ultimate being so Allah would be also what? Edison is with me. Okay.

01:00:01--> 01:00:07

Can you label it for me? What's the Islam? What's the federal what's the what's going on here? Is what

01:00:08--> 01:00:11

it is in Islam because I as a person good Sikh.

01:00:13--> 01:00:18

That's a federal because it's happening right now. Okay, good forgiveness.

01:00:19--> 01:00:37

So listen what kind of ism remember from now on I it's not enough for me that it's an ism I need to know what what kind of ism is that person place thing idea adjective adverb, or is it one of those more guys? Which one is it? Okay? What about from?

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

Good? What about the word Allah?

01:00:41--> 01:00:49

You guys are doing well. In the next 10 minutes. I'm gonna change your life. Inshallah, if Allah permits, here we go

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

actually, let me open up your book. You'll enjoy your book more.

01:01:02--> 01:01:03

You have your books with you

01:01:07--> 01:01:09

and see if it's here. No, it's not here yet.

01:01:15--> 01:01:19

Nope, I'll write it down. Okay. Just watch the screen again. No writing yet.

01:02:17--> 01:02:19

Okay, we'll go through these one at a time.

01:02:23--> 01:02:29

Can you guys see that? Okay, I'm gonna make it a little bigger so everybody can see it more clearly.

01:02:30--> 01:02:44

There are three words in every sentence. You don't have to know this. No writing down. This is a mental exercise. There's three words Allama you see? Every time or no? Okay, Allah means taught. Allah means what? taught what kind of word is Allama

01:02:46--> 01:02:47

fit very good. Why is it a parent?

01:02:48--> 01:03:00

Because it's in the good Allah is a fair everybody clear? Okay. Adonis means the lesson, or Doris means the lesson. What kind of word is the lesson?

01:03:01--> 01:03:20

In this a bit because it's an it's an idea. Good. Everybody clear? If you have questions, throw them out. Allah is what kind of word for L adonis's What kind of word ism and it will starve. I use that word because you use that word for me all the time was that means what?

01:03:21--> 01:03:23

What does it mean? Teacher? What kind of word is that?

01:03:25--> 01:03:27

So there's two isms. What are the two isms

01:03:28--> 01:03:42

was $1,000 and there's one fear and which is anima. Now I've just kind of moved them around. I love that Alyssa does understand Allah does Allah does Allah serve others Allah Allah says, Cool.

01:03:43--> 01:03:48

Can somebody vote for me? What does the first one mean? Who taught who?

01:03:50--> 01:03:51

Who taught what?

01:03:53--> 01:03:55

The teacher taught

01:03:56--> 01:03:57

the lesson.

01:03:58--> 01:04:00

The teacher taught the lesson. Second one

01:04:02--> 01:04:08

the teacher taught the lesson okay, this the third one

01:04:10--> 01:04:15

the lesson taught know the lesson taught

01:04:16--> 01:04:19

the lesson taught the teacher that's weird. What about the fourth one?

01:04:21--> 01:04:27

The lesson taught the teacher Hmm. Now I'm going to give you a clue.

01:04:29--> 01:04:31

Let's go to English for a second because I hope you still know English.

01:04:38--> 01:04:39


01:04:43--> 01:04:45

punched Joe.

01:04:47--> 01:04:49

Joe kicked Bob.

01:04:54--> 01:04:55

If I asked you

01:04:56--> 01:05:00

who did the punching in the face

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

First sentence.

01:05:02--> 01:05:04

And if I asked you who did the kicking in the second sentence,

01:05:05--> 01:05:08

whoever comes first must have done something.

01:05:09--> 01:05:28

If I flipped them around and I said, Joe punched Bob, who would you blame? Joe? If I said Bob kick Joe, who would you blame? Our English mind is programmed that whoever comes first in the sentence must have done something. You with me? The English mind says who should have done something?

01:05:29--> 01:05:34

The first one. Arabic is not like English. Let me give you a clue.

01:05:36--> 01:05:50

If so, the words the two isms are a lot of stars and a does. If you hear oh, at the end of any of them, if you hear what sound Oh, at the end of them,

01:05:52--> 01:05:53

they must have done something.

01:05:54--> 01:05:55

They did it.

01:05:56--> 01:05:59

And a few here and ah, at the end of them,

01:06:00--> 01:06:03

then they didn't do anything. Something was done to them.

01:06:04--> 01:06:19

So if you hear an OO, they're a doer. But if you hear an AA, there are done to meaning something was done to them. I'm gonna call them a done to so there's a doer and a done to you will meet Yes, question.

01:06:24--> 01:06:33

Yeah, you can say direct object, but that will give everybody else diarrhea. Because that's a big word. But yes, if you're an English teacher, yes, a direct object. Very good.

01:06:35--> 01:06:39

I'm avoiding all those terms right now. I'm just saying ooh, ah.

01:06:41--> 01:06:41


01:06:43--> 01:06:43


01:06:44--> 01:06:48

a dart sir. Who did the teaching?

01:06:49--> 01:06:50

How do you know?

01:06:51--> 01:07:03

Oh, who must have done something? Was that did I lose star via second sentence? Oh, oh star via Allah de su, who did the teaching?

01:07:05--> 01:07:08

The teach the lesson taught the teacher.

01:07:09--> 01:07:14

The lesson taught the Teacher How would I know? Because Ooh.

01:07:15--> 01:07:19

And then you say Ah, then he said Oh, no. Ooh.

01:07:20--> 01:07:21


01:07:22--> 01:07:30

Allah Danza. Gustavo, the third one. Allama. Dosa and Gustavo, who's doing the teaching?

01:07:31--> 01:07:31

How do you know

01:07:33--> 01:07:40

estado Good job. What about the last one? I've done su Allama Elisa.

01:07:42--> 01:07:46

The lesson taught the Teacher How would I know who's doing something?

01:07:47--> 01:08:01

Ooh sound our sound. By the way. There are three sounds in Arabic, the OU sound, the R sound and the e sound and the oo sound. There's a diet version and there's a fat version. The diversion is Ooh, the fat version is on.

01:08:02--> 01:08:20

And there's ah and what else? And there's a e and there's a n. That's why your calories hub who used to come teach you when you were a kid used to say on an in been been been to ta T don't turn 10 I have John John gin.

01:08:23--> 01:08:54

You heard those sounds over and over and over and over and over again because they actually have a purpose. They have a purpose. A word can be said in three you could say a loose taboo. You can say understand and you can also say what I Lusa V. You can say it in three ways. Okay? Now, keeping with this, I haven't taught you any grammar yet. None. You haven't written anything down yet. Have you? Good. I want to keep it that way. We'll write stuff down after maghrib right now just watch this.

01:08:55--> 01:09:03

In nama Yosh Allah ha This is an ayah of the Quran minute Reba De

01:09:05--> 01:09:07

La Rue La ma Oh.

01:09:10--> 01:09:13

And I will also write down where Catella

01:09:14--> 01:09:15

the wudu

01:09:17--> 01:09:21

Lu TA and I will also write down what is a patella

01:09:23--> 01:09:36

Ibrahim Ibrahim ah sorry, Ibrahima or a Boo. Boo Kalimantan. Okay, now I'm going to highlight some words for you so you can focus

01:09:51--> 01:09:52

Okay, let's do this exercise together.

01:09:53--> 01:10:00

In number your Shala Hammond everybody. The two words that I've highlighted are isms. They are why

01:10:00--> 01:10:16

In essence, one of them is the doer. I don't know the whole idea, I don't know enough Arabic yet. But one of them is the doer and the other one in the sentence is serving as a done two, which one is the doer and the first line?

01:10:17--> 01:10:21

Is it Allah? Or is it the word Allah? Or is it Allah Allah ma?

01:10:22--> 01:10:23

What's your proof?

01:10:24--> 01:10:26

Who, let me tell you what the ayah means.

01:10:28--> 01:10:43

People have knowledge, truly people people of knowledge among His servants, truly fear Allah. People have knowledge among His servants. Truly fear. Allah Who does the fearing

01:10:45--> 01:10:49

the people of knowledge among Allah servants, who do they fear? Who's the fear done to?

01:10:50--> 01:11:00

That's why the word Allah is Allah. Ha. Now if somebody says what's the reason for all these? Ooh, sounds I can say hola who? What difference does it make? Does it make a difference?

01:11:01--> 01:11:03

Every haircut makes a difference now.

01:11:04--> 01:11:21

Jesus pretty comfy thing to do on the flip side, isn't it? Okay, let's try this one. Well, there's two people that are mentioned diluted and dilute. Katana means killed. Katana means killed while Catella da who do Jalota My question is who killed who?

01:11:23--> 01:11:24

Tao who woulda killed?

01:11:25--> 01:11:29

If I say well Khattala da da da Lu. I just changed history.

01:11:31--> 01:11:38

Oh, that's why the your hurry. Your hips teacher used to slap you a good one on the back of your head when you said about khatola Tao who

01:11:42--> 01:11:43

killed the wrong one.

01:11:45--> 01:12:00

Okay, let's try the last one. What is the patella Ibrahima, everybody knows what Abraham means I have to translate Ibrahim. And everybody here knows what Rob means. If I need to translate Rob for you see me after class. I'll introduce you to Islam. Okay.

01:12:01--> 01:12:08

Is Ibrahim the doer? Or is rob the doer in the sentence?

01:12:09--> 01:12:10

On how you know

01:12:11--> 01:12:23

or boo you with me? Where the patella Ibrahim or boohoo when his master is lob. Tested Ibrahim, who did the testing?

01:12:24--> 01:12:37

Allah did the testing Surah boo. Who did he test? Who was the test done to Abraham Ibrahim Ah, you with me? Make a little bit of a mistake. And what's going to happen? Gopher shake?

01:12:38--> 01:12:47

It's pretty bad. That's pretty bad. You with me? So in English, how do you tell who did something in English?

01:12:48--> 01:13:00

Well, whoever comes first, in Arabic, the Arabic language doesn't depend on the order of the sentence to give you the meaning. The Arabic language manipulates what?

01:13:01--> 01:13:05

The end of a word? The end of a word. Now.

01:13:06--> 01:13:10

I'm just going to before your break because I don't want you to have a breakdown in the salon.

01:13:11--> 01:13:12

Yes, your question?

01:13:14--> 01:13:15


01:13:16--> 01:13:19

no, this is I've given you a drop.

01:13:20--> 01:13:29

And then if you say is this the way you swim in the ocean, nobody will wait. I just sprinkled a drop on your face. Don't jump in the ocean yet you will drown. I don't want you there.

01:13:30--> 01:13:37

So I'm going to tell you this. Ooh, does many things, including being the doer

01:13:39--> 01:13:44

does many things including being the done too?

01:13:45--> 01:13:59

So don't think it's the only thing it does. It's one of the many things it does. As we learn more, we'll learn the other things too. So with that, I'm going to give you a first break goes we learn more we'll learn the other things too. So with that, I'm going to give you a first break, go enjoy Salam

01:14:03--> 01:14:04
