Bismillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah le, he also has a huge pain and morbid Erie our last day.
Let me start by asking how was the test, or the two tests should have been okay, we shouldn't be. I took all the painful questions out, actually.
So just as I wanted you to have a sense of false confidence, so that you feel good, because later on, if you continue to decide to study with me, I'm going to give you very painful exams, like the ones that really hurt your head, because I know exactly how to cause inflict pain upon you through any questions. And I use those kinds of questions later on right now just want you to feel good about yourself and feel like everything's gonna be okay. Later on that make you feel like nothing's going to be okay. And then break you down and build you back up again, inshallah. But that's just my methodology and teaching. What I'd like to do is, first open up the floor to anybody who has any
particular questions about the test anything that they thought was particularly confusing, or they didn't understand the answer. Why was wrong? Because you guys have the answer key already. So I'll take any requests for any review from any question on the SM exam, the first exam first, just so everybody's looking at the same thing. So even Alina, you can let me know if there's any requests from online also, inshallah. But anybody here anybody have any questions about the exam? Or you're clear about everything? or confused about everything?
Everybody's Okay. Those of you who how many people did the exam this morning? Okay. That's why you're not confused because you didn't do the exam. So there's nothing to be confused about. Excellent. I'll just go over it really quickly. Then from the beginning to the end.
And if you do get a question, just stop me if something comes to mind. That's not clear. Stop me. You have a question?
Yeah, you can turn the mic on. So everybody can hear us. I put this down like this. And this is wrong. Mostly man. Okay. Let me show you on the screen. Okay. So the question you had was, how do I write? This is mostly Mon. What's the last version? Everybody? Why is the screen not? They're not seeing the screen?
Oh, it's not plugged in? Oh, yeah. That's usually a reason.
You can see it here.
Okay, it's mostly one, what's the nozzle version? So a student wrote the answer as mostly men. Okay, now this is sounds right, but it's written incorrectly. That's not how you write it. Whenever they see the unsound. They'll add an airlift to that.
Okay, that's the standard of the Arabic language. They don't do that with Muslim men.
Okay, they don't do that with that. And then if you say mostly, mostly mu, most likely Ma, and most the me, they didn't do it there either. So they only do it with an okay. Now there are some exceptions to that. Like, for example, if I say all right, my 10.
Right. rahmatan. Like that. You don't add an a lift to that. Okay. But if I say other than
then I have to write in a leaf. So it's just a round that doesn't take an Elif. Okay, everything else takes in a leaf. Okay. Any other questions? We close this?
You're the questions. Okay. Every user has four property status number, gender type, all kind of color. That's too easy. The default state of an SM is light. And there are four reasons that could be heavy.
The default state of aneurysm is heavy.
There are four reasons to be I'm interested what are those four reasons?
Well, the office light that's one
partly flexibles non Arab names places. That's to partly flexibles.
When you call someone
I'm absolutely sure that absolutely none of you will get this one. There is no way any single one of you will get this one the last one.
Huh. Absolute negation. Yeah. When you say absolutely no, like La Ilaha, illallah, etc, etc. Okay. All right. Arab names are partly non Arab names are partly flexible.
Just true. Human broken plurals must be treated as singular and feminine.
Falsely true, truly false.
It is false. It is false. What's the true version of this?
non human broken no human broken rules can be treated as singular feminine and they can also be treated what they actually are
right that you can use she and you can use they good non human broken tours are treated as singular and feminine. That is true. Oh one is treated as plural masculine because it is an ism jammer yeah it's some jam here means is some jammer is some jam. I mean is a collective noun you didn't know that word. That's okay. Now you know it's some generic That's correct. Plural and masculine. Yeah.
The default gender of an SM is feminine.
That is false. That is false because the default gender of any SM is masculine the word Kamar Moon is feminine because the Arabs so
yes no maybe so I don't know.
Why is it masculine?
Because the Arabs so
there's no list of words that are masculine because the Arab said so there's only a list of words that are what feminine because the herbs are so the sun is in them. So you figure might as well include the rest of the universe? No.
No, the sun is feminine but the moon is masculine. Okay. Yes.
Number six common. You said this masculine feminine
calmness and corn are plural because the Arabs had so right but their feminine right.
what Hakuna embody he Coleman's Holly Hina
Holman slowly Hina so what happens in the Quran is there are some cases where old mistreated feminine also but that's a little more complicated for now for your at your level assume it to be masculine plural.
Yeah, and the notes it should be masculine plural.
You had read the notes for calm
Okay, so let me just show you something since I came up. I'll show you both. I'll call them
a volley Mina
a phrase in the Quran
are they both proper?
Are they both proper? Okay, is one of the first one nestled.
The second one could be Nasim. Enoch could be number 12. So it could be nothing. The first one is masculine. According to the theory I just presented you is the second one masculine Yeah, Inez from the masculine chart. Right. So we've got NASA NASA plural plural. Masculine masculine, proper proper. What are we looking at?
This is a muscle suffer. Okay.
Or like in the story of Yusuf alayhi salam after you throw him in the well after that you will become a good people. Holman slowly Hina.
Notice also common common plural plural, etc, etc. Yeah, however, however, watch this
past tense who NESARA Houma NESARA home Nazzaro here
we'll discuss about who lied who who denied let's see easy translation who denied
she denied she denied when you hear a she should you look for an outside door
Yeah, so what happens in the Quran is gets a bit
of blur hum
what a couple means before.
Ebola is one of the words that are milled off 99% of the time I call them special mold offs and your list applies them above home is the mafia was Coppola home mean
before them what status is cobbler
refer Kubla Kubla
NASA if it was complete, it would be job if it was called Blue it would be okay so capitalize NASA and whom is what status
some people are saying Rafa is breaking my heart. Attached pronouns can only be in a super job, and if they're attached to a mold off
their job home is Joel.
She lied before
For them, she lied or she denied before them now watch this
what is the relationship between calm and loot?
That calm calm is Bartok Athlon while men fi calm Hatha hola
como stumbled off lighten olive lamb Lutheran is Cha so that's what our philosophy what is called will not mean
okay go back to Canada but when you see a he should you look for an outside door
is calm is outside door. This does happen in the Quran. Generally, the word calm is masculine. But can it be considered feminine also? Yes, it's kind of like a human, they come almost treated like a human broken plural. Even though it's not a plural. It's not a broken plural at all. It's a nation. It's not nations. It's a nation. So that does happen. It's a little bit tricky. But at the base level, I wanted to not give you the whole truth. Be selective with the truth and just tell you it's plural and masculine. So if you wrote plural and masculine, you're right. If you wrote feminine, you're right. However, if you're gonna say plural, masculine, you'll be right. Or if you say
You can say plural and feminine.
The two answers would be either plural, masculine or singular, feminine. You can't have it mixed between those two.
The word common Okay, there are eight reasons for an SM to be proper.
There are Oh yeah.
You remind me of a story from my college days in 1826. There was a guy I used to be at the for a little bit of time I spent in Queens College, between Baruch College and Queens College and in Queens College. We had some guys in my college days, they love debating the atheists, the philosophy club, like the Muslim guys that would go to the philosophy club and debate the existence of God. But the atheists, right, and they just believe that every Muslim should know how to debate with atheists and every Muslim should be able to prove that God exists. And then there was this one guy who just came from, I believe he was from a village in Pakistan in somewhere in Sindh, he still had that hat
that has the mirrors on it. You've seen the school fees with the mirrors. He used to wear that to college. It was really sweet guy. And he's just sitting there in the MSA room, the Muslim Souza, he's just making a Salah. Some of those debate guys walk into the masjid, some radical political Islam.
Are you new? Yeah. hamdulillah first semester for me, was the brother comes in. What do you search online?
While we're going to discuss the proofs for the existence of God, the existence of Allah Allah, Allah is there.
Allah is there that says Allah is there. And you guys are like, oh, yeah, can you prove it?
Can you prove this atom? Can you prove it? He goes, You prove it
that's the reason I remember that is what I said. There are seven reasons for Listen to me proper. Now I tried to you as he once said, you prove it.
So what are the seven reasons
pronouns that's to
Pointers, that's for
is the most all lovey lovey Ron cousins.
calling names stupid, proper.
Not calling names. The one being called not calling names.
And the last one,
the mobile off is proper. Only if the mobile filets proper. Good. That's seven. You proved it.
Yesterday was proper because it's light.
No, yesterday was proper because it's a name. It's a proper name. Right? The four properties as per its grammatical treatment. Ooh, that's a fun one. That's a lot of work. I'm not doing it. You have an answer key questions on this one? Any any questions on this one? Number three, okay, and how to reverse let's go through that. Notice that it gives you the meaning. So what do you learn from the meaning is this word singular pair or plural? It's plural. The moment you hear plural from semester one.
Which plural remember, plural is not enough. We have to say which plural noun
If this is a plural in Arabic that ends with una or Ina, that would be a masculine plural. If it ended with athanor Athan, that would be a feminine plural. If it was all nice and Korean, it would be a plural because the Arabs set so then we got to left a human broken plural or a nonhuman broken Perl, which you cannot figure out on your own unless somebody hands you the meaning you can't guess them. You can't divine the meanings yourself. So I said rivers here. So is this human or non human? This is non human, depending on your religious tradition. But for us, it's non human. For some people, rivers are alive and there are people and they talk to them and all kinds of stuff.
Whatever, whatever works their flow, I don't know. Okay, so then how are broken plural? non human? Now we can figure out its four properties now that we know that what's the status of it?
It's an offer, what's the number and gender together number and gender singular and feminine, good. Grammatically singular and feminine. Even though dictionary wise plural, right? So the contradiction between grammar and dictionary Okay, common or proper? Y.
Can we do number four as well? We can Would you like fries with that?
Good job number or jar? Why?
non Arab name.
non Arab name.
non Arab names can be nossob or Java and who remember refers wound so this jar is also a good job. Okay. So that's number jar. What about the number?
Good job. Easy.
Okay, number six?
refer or not? Or? Because how that is what?
I you know, it's a pointer. But what is it in terms of status?
What is that called? It's the same as all three status.
You guys are answering this way. I look at a set of stairs. And I say to someone, what is that? And you said there are a number of steps that you can take one on top of the other to reach from one floor to you could just say it's stairs. What I'm saying what is this? You're like it's the same as far as same as dance it was. What is it called? Non flexible. Non flexible. That's what this is called. Okay.
So how does non flexible refer or not support y'all? Number?
Heather, singular, masculine. If this was feminine, what would it be? Heavy, common or proper?
Why? Why is it proper? There's no alarm. It is not somebody's name.
All pointers are proper. It's one of the seven.
Seven to 10 so if you
What do you see?
Jarrah in LA he were in LA he Rajang.
rougher in La La he were in LA Herradura
Nasir Virgil La hawla wala Quwata illa Billahi la li la you making me do so much Dickon right now? You're increasing meanie man actually you're increasingly in southern
you know, at my graduation ceremony for Dream students I used to say I don't know if I increased you in knowledge but you definitely increased me in silver
lesson number two
it's like a stock market right now.
It's Annie, which is a combination
and the combination is to offer which means you know that it's an offer and you know the number is two
and the TA tells you that it's feminine like Muslim attorney and there's no island the beginning which tells you it's common.
Okay, summer one status attorney. Okay. Please don't break my heart. Samoan would offer masculine or feminine.
Because the Arab satsa
Somehow one singular pair or plural
common or proper common
li of the
singular very good
fam feminine why?
Because the Arabs so
author plural masculine I'm gonna say it fast Rafa plural masculine Where did I get all three answers from?
owner told me refer guna told me plural una also told me masculine The only thing left now is is a common or proper why
right the Muslim chart I don't want to know what you did I don't want to know
yeah but you should say to me before you ask your question
Muslim one what's the man Muslim in Muslim any Muslim any Muslim any Muslim Munna Muslim Meena Muslim ina Muslim atone Muslim at 10 Muslim attain Muslim attorney Muslim a tiny Muslim a tiny Muslim ah tone Muslim ah thin Muslim Ah 10 Let's go quickly over what the point of all of that is. Mostly mon is one refer Muslim man is one nosode Muslim in is one jar Muslim Imani Muslim mainly Muslim may need to refer to NASA to Job mostly Munna Muslim Amina Muslim enough he will refer plural NASA plural job for humans, mostly Mattoon was Dima 10. Was the methane one regardless of Jar feminine Muslim attorney Muslim attaining Muslim detainee to or offensive job Pierre Muslimah tone
Muslim teen Muslim Martin plural are often a sub genre but what feminine and feminine though that clearly everybody yes question
eight and nine eight or nine Yeah Did you just explain sorry Why the Arab said so like where did we there was a barbecue
Why did the Arab say so?
Did we have it in our notes? Yes they the Arabs said So on page
in your in your notes is on page 13 Okay
yes, so I've learned this one before we start but like is there any value in learning of is Shamcey and in Korea?
Yeah, it has value not grammatical but not phonetic value. Yeah. Okay. Okay. Yeah, you're gonna tell me if it's common or proper molk why good who are why
No, I'll a lazy Why
is the most soon
Some guy named acids like proper It's my name.
I'm pretty sure you're not in the Quran, my friend. That's not you. Just like Bushra in Quran is not talking about your cousin Bushra. We should I endo Quran means good news. Your cousin may not be
Let's see some Arwa in
Core, somebody said proper defend your position through it
that is I just had the best experiences in college like these were gold. I don't know you don't have those kinds of experiences anymore. I don't know. It's not as fun anymore. This is one guy.
Those who had just come from Bangladesh. He's one of my best friends. And he just he did not speak a lot of English at all. So he and I used to speak in Urdu. And he got in I don't know what happened. We used to play ping pong in the student union, you know, so he's playing ping pong one day and he got into a fight with a really big guy. Like he just got into some kind of argument. So I walk into the hotel and he's he was tiny and the guy was huge. It was like two and a half times. It's just like, you know, like, John lute. Right? And the big guys yelling and he's using foul language and he's using the worst word.
going off on him and he's just standing there staring at him
and then he says I have no vocabulary
the best response I've ever heard
No sign of no signs of proper no Elbasan
good. Okay you figured that out
well that's all there was. Look at that so easy.
I did make it nice and easy. Okay, quickly. Fairly quiz
the Farrell Raja
is an example of a tense hoo ha ha Raja Houma ha Raja right where the inside pronoun is.
Who are he?
You didn't get this
sounds like a you problem
it came today you don't check your email every day like every other second you don't you're not that kind of person. Your normal was
340 was four hours ago.
And shouldn't get we shall come to you sooner. Yeah.
So I shouldn't do this right now. You're going to hurt your feelings. Now you do it. You could do it on the go. The feral Yuja he do now is an example of a tense,
present tense, where the inside pronoun is home. Say Good. Yeah, beginning on ending.
And outside Farrell.
I'm sorry, this is typo. An outside file.
That's out file and outside doer. You can cross the word fail out and say doer and outside Doer can only come if the federal is in the
he or she version who are here version. That's fine. Either one is fine.
And it must be Before After. After. And it must be in what status refer status. Identify the hoof correctly for half NASA. Okay, so these terms are new for you. So I don't know why they're here. But this shouldn't be half nasib. This should say light half. This is called this is the Arabic term for it. They call it hard for NASA. The reason I didn't use it is you already use the word NASA in SM world. Right? So you would confuse this NASA with that muscle so I just use light and lightest but the fear and have their own kind of muscle and the ISM has its own kind of muscle. And then the the lightest is called jasm.
The lightest is called jasm. Okay, that's the latest version. Okay? So we're just going to use light and lightest because we're used to that okay. So, well is that L or L plus?
l plus what does it mean?
Should should with the word and and dot dot dot should okay in L or L plus L plus what does it mean? If lum
L or L plus L plus what does it mean?
Did not good had
L plus what does it mean?
So, with the word should So, should Lenna
L What does it mean?
Lana? Will not will not
I like it, it could be L and it could be L plus.
How could it be L
because li k you can also say in three ways, right? What are the three ways of saying Lika? You could say li K or li or and if it's from Li k then it's the L
and if it's in lum llama li then it's L plus. So it's actually a member of both yes
No lung is not like this
yeah oh yeah
lung is light
and you're saying I didn't say that?
I did say that
it's sukoon doesn't matter it's the word after that. Yeah. Okay. Okay. Llama
L plus what does it mean
yet not not yet good not yet and
and his later lightest light what does it mean
that are to leak a
light what does it mean?
they're all plus they cannot be oil no
because if they were l they would be well Lee or fair Lee so that gives away that their L plus
okay good question
underline the federal and right whether it is past present Okay What did you guys think in the first case? What was the Ferren?
unzila and what did you think it was past tense present tense.
This person's our sound at the end kind of a giveaway who are Angela, Houma and Zillow, home and Zulu. Some of you may have thought it was maybe present tense and it begins with Elif means i. That may be possible that confusion will remain for maybe another couple of weeks and then I will get rid of it for you. How will you know because sometimes there's overlap, right? You can have a past tense that begins with TA that can happen. You can have a past tense that begins with Elif that can happen. But how will we know we'll learn soon enough? Anyway, so Angela is in fact past tense, and it means Hua Hua Angela, he sent down the book, if hub.
Well, it doesn't match anything in the past tense. Because in the past tense, either you have an AA, like NESARA or NESARA or an SRO. You have all those, right, but you don't have any of those endings in anthem. So it can't be a past tense. It can't be a present tense because the present tense either begins with Hamza or who, which this doesn't begin with? Or it begins with now or no, or Yeah, or you are TA or two. So it's not a present tense.
And what could be a reason to start a word with E and N would soon?
Commands commands do that, don't they? So you by elimination.
And this is where I'm going to teach you your new skill today. It's not a full on lesson, but learning the process of elimination. Okay, this is not in your notes. So you should write this down. Okay, learning the process of elimination. What does that mean? You don't know vocabulary? You don't have enough vocabulary, you're reading the Quran, the vast majority of words, you don't know what you're dealing with, right? But in this class, you've learned there are three kinds of words, what are the three kinds of words is some Ferrell and have the heart, the heart for the easiest, most of them you've already heard now. Either they're the half of jar, or the health of NASA, or the
lighthouse or the latest health there are more harder, but they're easy. They're not they're not hard. So hard, isn't really a contender, when you're trying to figure out what it where it is. The two main contenders are, it could be an SM and it could be a ferret. Now, if it could be in Islam, then you took two semesters of Islam, you learn four properties of the Assam and you learn five fragments of the SM and you try to find the invisible is all that stuff will become alive if the word you're dealing with is an Assam but none of that will be relevant if the word you're dealing with is a what is a fairly like all that stuff you learned is not applicable, you know how in a form
you have to fill out and he just doesn't apply. Right? If you're if you're looking at a ferret then the stuff you learned about a federal applies if you're looking at an SM the stuff you learned about an SM applies so the real challenge is, Is it is it is some
or what? No fear is not enough. Here's what it's going to be is it is some or past or present
because the forbidding is easy if you can spot it easily. So the three main contenders like when you're looking at a big word in Arabic
Any big word in Arabic, your real three each the four possibilities is either this isn't awesome. Or this is a past tense, or this is a present tense or this is a command. Okay, that's, this is what I'm trying to teach you is process of elimination. Because as you've learned all this stuff, you're like, how do I even know what I'm looking at? How do I even know? So I'm going to show you some things that are really, really cool.
Look at this example.
I don't know what this is. Let's just say unzila. I don't know what this is.
And I don't know what Al Kitab is. So let's start with Al Kitab. Because it looks a little more familiar. What is on Al Kitab that is giving away that it might be an Essen.
And so that's it isn't. But that was a good giveaway. Right. So okay, fine. Al Kitab ism. That's why it's Nassif status, fine. Let's go back towards unzila. I was gonna say maybe on Zillow is also an ism. Let's just say play devil's advocate on Zillow in my mind is also an ism. The problem with that is an ism. When it's next to another ism. When two isms are together, either they are muscles suffer,
or they are multifold, awfully something is happening. Looks like unzila is light, no Alif Lam, so maybe it's some other stuff. And if I can show that the next word is John, then you know what, I'll have way more confidence that both unzila and Al Kitab are both isms, because the mode offers an ism and the mobile if it isn't, but when I look at unzila, and I start to think it might be a month off, that theory collapses. Why does it collapse?
Because al Kitab does not act like a job.
Now, let me show you something else. You learned three kinds of status, what were they refer? No Slip end. Okay. What do you know about NASA? You know that he does two jobs. I'm using everything you've learned nothing new. Just what you've learned. NASA does two jobs. Does anyone remember what those two jobs are? Yeah.
It's a detail or,
or after it's a half of Nisan. Okay, after, so in an A and B and later like in Allah, Allah or the half of now, you'll see why it's important to memorize that stuff. I look at this, I'll get up and I say listen book. You are nestled. I don't know two reasons you could be Nussle. two main reasons. One of them is healthfulness of is that here. The other reason is you must be a detail. But detail of what
a funeral. So now I go backwards. And I have a really good educated guess that unzila is probably a
just using what I know I start using this investigative process and start figuring out what's going on and this doing this kind of investigation is really helpful for your grammar. It's really helped because you start thinking, you know, grammatically all the time all the time trying to solve the problem. Okay, now let's look at unzila at least we came to the conclusion that it's a Ferran Yes, it's a ferret. But there are three Farrell's to contend with. It could be a past tense, it could be a present tense, and it could be a command. Past Present. Those are my three main contenders. So now I Okay, fine. It's not an awesome, but it's one of the three favorites. So how do I figure this out?
Okay, well, let's go with the easiest commands and in the lightest form.
Write commands and in the lightest form, is this in the lightest ending? No, so it's not command. How many options left? Yes.
Starts with N.
You can also eliminate because it starts with an R and I'll give you even better you see, this Elif has a Hamza on top.
Commands don't get that commands just get a floating Hamza without the following Elif without the Hamza on top or bottom. So you don't write you don't write it like this, you know, like the first command in the Quran by the way. My wife will show you that.
Yeah, I'm looking at a PDF.
Duck, or oh,
let me make that bigger.
Okay, okay. dakara Oh, you read the crowd means you read. How do I make this the lightest version?
What's the latest version of the crew?
Cora like that.
Step two to make it a command.
Remove the top.
Does it need help? Yes. How do I determine what sound this will get?
So which letter Am I looking at here? If RA was EU, it would have been EU. If it's not EU it's going to be and what do we read? If this may not be can the Haluk.
Accra write like that I noticed I write, I write it like this. I don't write it like this.
I don't write it like this. That's wrong. There's no hummus on the bottom. It's just a clot like that. Okay. Now, coming back to unzila.
I eliminated that it's not a command. What's left? It's not an ism. It's not a command. What possibilities are left? Past tense or? Okay, the present tense? What's the first present tense? You know, young SOTL? That's normal, isn't it? Young SOTL.
The closest thing to this would be unsuitable.
If it's a present tense, it would be unsuitable because it begins with olive.
But this doesn't look normal.
Because the present tense could be normal or light or lightest. This doesn't look normal. Why not? If it was normal, and it was a present tense, what would it be?
it would have been normal. You have to have a reason to make it one.
Light. Do you see a reason in the text? No, I don't think it's present tense for no reason.
Every normal present tense ends with a comma. And if it's late, you better find a reason. And if it's latest, you better find a reason.
But unzila ah, sounds like a pretty convenient match for what word you memorized? NASA NESARA.
This was a long thought process. But what am I trying to tell you what, you know? I said something way early in the course. I don't know what this is. You remember what I said? I don't know what this is. But I know what it's not that thought process will make you an Arabic gangster. That thought process. I'm, you know why I'm telling you this because I figured out so much Arabic without going to a teacher? Because I kept telling myself, I don't know what this is. What I know what it's not. I don't know what this is. And I know what it's not and 90% of a problem would get solved. And then I would go for the last 10% to somebody and help they help me. I didn't say teach me Arabic. No, I
said whatever little I know, I'm going to put it to work. I'm going to exhaust what I know. And then when I can't do any more myself, then I'm gonna go hey, I don't get this word. I don't get this one thing help me here. Right. And that's true learning is that when you do most of the lifting yourself, most of the work is yourself and you absolutely get stuck. And then you go to your teacher. Okay. Anyway, in the beginning, the teacher has to handhold you through the fundamentals. But then on you've got to pick up your way. Look at is hub. It's a big word. There are question. Yeah, what's the difference between underline masala
Briefly, nessa means to come down. So if I came down those steps, that would be NWSL two, but if I push this down the stairs It would be Ansel to who I sent it down. So coming down myself and sending something else down. Okay, anyway, if hub forwards it could be an ism. It could be an awesome it could be a past tense, it could be a present tense and it could be a command those are my four big words in Arabic ism past tense present tense command. Let's go through it. Could it be an Assam
isms have ending sounds or ending combinations doesn't have an ending sound here is some is out
easy elimination ism is out everybody see that?
Because you can see it often or SuperJet it's gone. What three things are left?
Past Present N Okay past tense is gone.
Can you tell me why past tense is gone? I want to hear from you.
In the past tense you match what what's your what do you use the answer key who Asada Hamana Salam Nussle, what do you use it for? To match what?
How the word ends? Does anything in the past tense and like in hub?
Nothing. There's no match. If there's no match, it's not a past tense. Past tense is gone. In the present tense, what do I look for first?
There's only four beginnings or oh, now or new? Yeah. Are you thought or two does it have have any of those four beginnings? It's also gone. What's left?
I don't even I know. I don't know what this is.
but I know it's not an Assam I know it's not a past tense I know it's not a present tense now I can make a pretty educated guess that this is a command. You see that? So the knowledge you have the super cool now imagine some of you have never met your in laws so you don't know who fit on is
So you don't know what the word felon is? Let's just imagine
what is it? Is it something you learned?
What is it
a handful of does a half of Java like to beat up on a past tense or a present tense or a command or an ism
so if you see either the next word has to be and once you know it's an ism for properties, whatever you learn five fragments all that stuff you see what I'm doing let's let's look at something else
let's try this one. I want okay I don't know school is too easy. Let's just get that out of the way. What kind of word is also listen past tense present tense or command that's an isn't easy peasy lemon squeezy. Okay, is Armineh and ism
I want to know why I want to I want you to use your elimination process because that's the skill I want to give you I am not going to be here when you're reading Quran by yourself. So I want to be able to equip you with the thought process so what is the thought process here? How do I know Amina is not a command are not innocent? Yeah
okay ending sound sounds nossob to me
so that could be not something an SM can be nestled
what can can you eliminate it some other way? Can somebody also limited Yeah Are you happy? What do you think?
It's doesn't look like a mold often and will offer a why not?
Always Hulu is Rafa. rasuluh is refer now there are five fragments Do you remember the five fragments there was pulled off end mobile affiliate there was
most often server hydrogel half NASA pointers, five ways isms work with each other.
This would have been on Buddhafield awfully, but it doesn't seem to work.
I'm gonna say I'm gonna is not in essence.
I'm gonna get rid of that. I'll go to the easiest elimination. I'm gonna say I'm gonna is not a command.
How did I eliminate that?
There has to be evil. That's gone. Okay.
I'm gonna say maybe it's a past tense. And maybe it's a present because the present tense can begin with or Ah, so it does begin that way. But a present tense should be normal. And if this was normal, what would it be?
I'm a New. I'm a New but does it?
Does it it doesn't. But somebody argues let's play even further. I'll show you even even something more. But if it is Armineh the past tense. Let's just play with that. If it's past tense, does it match with NESARA NASA era now does the ending match. Okay, what does that ending tell you? Who's the doer?
He's the doer. When he's the doer should you look for an outside doer is a rasuluh after and refer. This seems to work really well as a past tense. But let's say somebody wants to say no start. I'm still confused. Ooh. And I could also be a word a present tense. If it's a present tense, and I agree with you, temporarily, I agree with you. If it's a present tense, who would theoretically be the doer?
If it began with Elif who would be the doer in the present tense. I would be the doer and if I as a doer should you have an outside doer. The only time you have an outside doer is if it's what he or she so our rasuluh being Rafa would stop making any sense.
It wouldn't make sense because you can't have a doer when you already have a doer. The only way this makes sense is if I'm gonna is the past tense. Am I giving you some new knowledge or teaching you how to exhaust what you already know?
Exhaust what you use what you know these fundamentals are huge. They are like, how am I going to know you're going to use a little bit of deductive reasoning? And how will you get good at this, you can't get good at this if your fundamentals are not solid. You can't you can't what I just did here, you can't do that. If your four properties of the Assam and your five fragments and your past tense and your present tense and your pronouns and your command and forbidding those lessons that we did. If those are not solid, you cannot do this. And to do to become solid at that. You don't need some exhaustive education. You just need to solidify what we did in these 10 days. The hard part's
already done. The foundation the base of the foundation is
already lead, the cement is now wet, you just need to solidify it. And that means which days are the most important? I keep saying it. The next 10 days are the most important. They are the most important. I'm going to start you off with this conversation now.
We have to have short term. And then we have to have long term was a long time ago, there was a young man in the middle of the day 12pm He was sitting in a park, it was the old man sitting next to him. He said, Young man, why are you sitting here? Who said, Oh, no. Just relaxing. And he said, Why are you relaxing? You're a young man, you should do something. And he said, What should I do? He goes, at least go buy some fruit, get a stand and sell it in the park. And he says done, what should I do? Well, if you sell it off, you can hire someone who can run one of the stands, and you can open up your second banana stand, and said don't go to show do? Well, if you get a couple of people
working for you. You can have banana stands in every park in the city. He has done what I should, what should I do? Because then you should go and travel and by yourself. You'll have enough money to buy yourself a bunch of banana farms.
And you'll be rich. He goes, then what should I do? Because then you can relax? Because I'm already relaxing.
What students students come to me with Stan, I know he did this. What should I do? I say do this. But then what am I going to do?
Okay, then do that. And then.
And then give me the 80 point plan for the next five years? Have you ever followed up on any 80 point plan in your life? The vast majority of you I know the answer. Because I know you because I know myself, the answer is no. So stop pretending that you need the entire roadmap and until you have that are know what to do.
Because I don't know what I'm going to be doing 3.5 years from now. So clearly I don't have direction. That's why I stopped learning. Okay, so you know what that's called? That's called analysis paralysis. Okay, you analyze so you plan out so much, and you do what you do absolutely nothing, then you feel insanely guilty. Then you buy yourself a dry erase board and make a new plan for the next 10 years. And you take pictures of this, this is the plan. And then you follow through nothing. And then you say, time to make a new plan. This is it. You know,
that's not what I want to give you. I'm not giving you a one year plan or two year plan. I'm first giving you a 10 day plan.
Those of you that are watching online, if you're gonna watch this a year from now, some of you are watching live, some of you are going to watch a month from now five years from now, I don't care. You have the same plan. 10 day plan and I listen, you guys are sitting in front of me. And somebody's sitting in Indonesia watching this. Some people are sitting in Angola watching this. Some people are sitting in Senegal watching this. Some people sitting in Australia watching this. To me all of my students are equal. You're not in some special status because you live in the holy city of Dallas. You're not, you know, I know it's Dallas Managua. Nowadays, but no, you're just students and
your students the same to me everywhere in anywhere. My attitude to you is no different from an attitude I have towards a student that's studying online. And some of you are used to this convenience drug. I really learned better when I'm sitting in person. It's just such a great feeling. And I just, I just do so much better that way.
Yeah, yeah, it's true. It's true for me though, it's really true.
If I had that attitude,
if I had that attitude,
I would know nothing.
I would do nothing. That is a convenience attitude. That is I must learn on my terms because this is optimal for me. The people before us a century before us. 50 years before us. Not 10s 10 centuries before us 50 years before it's 30 years before us. How did they learn?
How did they learn? I wanted to study when I I studied with my teacher for three weeks. Three weeks, that's it.
When he was gone, it was one to barkston He's like, What do I do? I need to learn in person I can't and I couldn't even afford like Arabic books. They were expensive. So I found somebody selling a used copy of the medina Arabic books outside the masjid or Juma I got to use copy with pencil markings and and all over. I got it for six bucks. It's great. I went through the book myself in a week.
I grinded through it. I don't I there was no Google the meaning of this word. There was no error.
tools there was no, I didn't even I couldn't afford a dictionary. I couldn't go to the hands wares dictionary, the PDF files weren't available. Like all this stuff. That's all the PDF is so inconvenient, can't there be an app I have to download have to keep tapping the right button to go to the next page. It's so inconvenient.
You know what I have to do when I didn't know the meaning of a word. And I'm living in Forest Hills, Queens, which is a predominantly Russian Jewish neighborhood where there's no nobody to learn Arabic From if I want to learn Hebrew, I can learn there in Forest Hills at the time, but not Arabic. I'm going to get on a train. And I'm going to write to Brooklyn or I'm going to go to Steinway Street and wait until mod epsilon till the Arab Imam comes out and say your Imam has
And he looked
and he told me and I'd write it down, and go back, take the train back for two words.
And what do I hear now, it's just so much better when the room is air conditioned and the light the carpeting, just, it just the chair bothered me a little bit it was making squeaky sounds that's why I didn't learn as well.
Honest to God, you know, I can't I can't recommend this.
But for yourself, I can't do this to you. You should do this by yourself. I've seen this only in cartoons, they have this boxing glove punch thing that you can retract into a spring and you press a button and it just
yeah, just buy yourself one of those when you develop that attitude, because you can not learn that way. That's not alert that's not a seekers attitude.
There's there's you have to have a seekers attitude.
eyes when I studied grammar, just like you're studying now not much different than you're studying now. Did I know enough to just listen to an Arabic lecture? What do you think? No. Did I know enough to understand the entire Quran like this? No, I didn't. I had two choices until there's another class. And it comes at my convenient schedule, then I will start learning again. Or I'm desperate enough for this. I'm gonna figure this out no matter what. And it's not like nowadays many of you kids.
I appreciate you guys sitting in this class. But you don't appreciate how good you haven't man.
In New York, when I was born in the 90s, Islam was very different from today's Islam. Those of you that were around in the 90s in the US know, 90s Islam was very different.
We had everybody in the family had a job.
Most of the time two jobs are used to deliver newspapers at 4am in the morning before I went to high school. And then after school, I used to go work at a shoe store.
Like you do homework in your lunch break. You come home at 1111 3012 o'clock, sometimes beat
you don't have time to do you don't have time to be stupid. And on top. And then when my parents left and I was in college by myself. Nobody paid my college tuition. I had to pay my college tuition myself. Where am I gonna go to college? I had to work full time. And between paying the rent and paying the college tuition. You know what was left enough to have a slice of bread, a slice of bread, no butter, no jam, a slice of bread, and a glass of water for breakfast.
And like a pizza slice. For lunch. We're good. I stayed with an auntie who used to make dinner. They're great. Okay, I still go there. When I go to New York. I have dinner with them.
Well, you know what, in the middle of all that I was like, I gotta study Arabic. So I got a full time job. I got full time college. And I want to study Arabic. So what am I doing? I'm taking trains and like, in the middle of rush hour, I'm going over to the masjid and trying to take a class if I can or study on the train, figuring out notes underlining words memorized. I memorized a little cough on this on the on the F train and greens. I didn't go to a hems program. I remember a suit on Issara on the on the G train.
On the sixth train actually on the sixth train.
You know, like, it was like, there's the guy next to me go.
you know, and I'm just reciting, reciting, reciting just doing my thing. Was it convenient? No, it was amazing. Yeah, it was amazing. But you know what, I'm telling you this not because I want to show off. I'm telling you this because I need to you to detox from the convenience attitude. That is not how you learn. That's just not how you learn. And then after I made a little bit of progress in Arabic, you know, I got thrown into this situation where I was given called buzzer in New York. So give a hotline somebody came to me and said, Are you ashamed? I
mean, Aina taraj Where did you graduate graduate from shake. I was 20 years old. I was like an A shaycarl Cohen's d
the point is you guys can learn and the tools you have accessible to you. Oh my god. You guys don't even know how good you have it. I don't even have to compare it to ancient times when used to people have to travel on the desert, bro. You know how I learned how to you know how I type in Arabic really fast? Right? It's kind of cool, right? It's so cool
you know how we type like that? You know, I learned
I listened to an Arabic lecture on cassette tape on my Walkman.
And I didn't understand a word the guy was saying it was not actually done. May Allah protect him. He did a series in Arabic called Al Jazeera Quran the miracle of the Quran, I didn't understand a word the man was saying Not a word. I would listen to the tape pause type.
An eight hour lecture series took me two weeks to type up in its entirety. By the end of it, I was typing like this. And by the end of it, I knew about 20% of what he was saying. And I listened to it again and again and again and again, until I understood 100% of what he was saying.
I just kept pushing myself. Did I have a teacher? I did. I did I have to DM somebody on Instagram or Tik Tok? Can you inspire me? I feel Can you motivate me? Can you please send me some motivational messages so I can pick myself up?
What is this nonsense?
Well, I don't understand it. I really I don't I don't sympathize with it. I don't acknowledge it. I don't agree with it. I have no sympathy. I have none at all. No empathy for it. Please inspire me.
Do it to yourself. You will feel inspired the scientists who liquor cleared
that's Indian inspiration. Yes. That's Foxton at expiration.
next 10 days, I've assigned my teacher's assistants to be on YouTube Live, they will send you an email, which hours they're going to be on live, you will you're being sent an answer key for this study packet. Every every question, they're going to go over all the exercises that we did on day one, tomorrow, all the exercises on day two, on the second day, third, day four, they will go through the entire study packet, whatever questions you need answered, the support mechanism is there for you to take advantage of. And at the end of that I want you to take an exam. The purpose of the exam is you have made the most valuable investment in the last 10 days that you could make.
And it's not if you pay the tuition for this. That's not the investment, way more than the money you spent on a class is the time you spent. This was time taken away from other things, it was time taken away from family from work from business from other things, you invested the most valuable asset in your possession, which is what your time and when you make an investment. Anybody who knows business knows, when you make an investment, you should be concerned with the return on the investment.
The if in your mind, this is just an experience, then it's not an investment. Because the experience is about to be over and a few in less than two hours, the experience is going to be over. But if this is an investment, that now you have to capitalize on what you just spent,
you understand and these next 10 days, if you don't take advantage of what I'm telling you, you will not have capitalized on this investment, this investment will go to waste. The iron is hot right now, if you come back to this a month from now, you will not be doing well. If you come back this two weeks from now, you will not be doing well. If you tell yourself, I need a couple of days to detox from all this Arabic,
then you will remain in your detox program.
You'll you'll learn whatever, you won't learn Arabic, then then I'll see you a year from now you're like hey MOBA Frey.
That's all that's gonna be left. I don't want you to waste your investment. Next 10 days, and then I'm giving you a test. And the test is going to be online. You'll take it online, you'll get your score online. You'll get that emailed to you. And after the test, I have a surprise for you.
I'm not telling you what it is. No, I'm not telling you what it is. But it is a surprise. No, it's not a Snickers.
But the surprise has to do with you making sure you make progress from there now that your investment is secure. Now time to build your wealth of Arabic knowledge. Time to build that, right because the whole point of this course is build a foundation, but a foundation. Isn't that nice unless you build something on it, isn't it? So now we got to secure this foundation. That's the next 10 days. Then we got to start building on it. Okay,
I want to help you step by step. I wish I had a teacher that could say, Follow this step, then follow this step, then follow this step, then follow this step. And I had, I had to go run into a dead end street, come back five miles, go run this way, come back that way, go that way, come back, that I have to go through all these different loopholes, and then figure out what pathway to take. I'm helping you avoid all of the dead ends I ran into. I'm not giving you this curriculum and this pathway, as a teacher, I'm giving it to you as a former student. Like I see things from the perspective of a student, not from the perspective of a teacher. Right. So I, if you trust me with
this, allow me to build your pathway. So let's talk about the goal. Because before we go on a journey, we should be clear about the goal. The goal is not Arabic.
the goal is Quran.
The goal of this curriculum is not Arabic. I'm not teaching you Arabic to speak Arabic, to read read literature, that's a later goal, then the goal will change to Arabic, right now my goal for you is not Arabic, my only goal for you and the only goal you should have for yourself is What is the Quran, that's it, that's the only goal.
Which means and I want you to remember this visual,
you build your foundation.
Now you need to study a little bit of Quran just a little bit.
But now you need to build your foundation and Quran study,
then you're going to build a little more Arabic, not too much more, a little bit more 5% more than what are you going to do next? Go back and do some more Quran study, then a little bit more Arabic, then a little bit more, hold on study. And the more your Arabic is building, the more advanced your Quran study is becoming because you can handle a heavier load in your Quran study. And you keep going like this and like this, and like this, and like this. Now if you keep building your Arabic
and your Quran stays here, you will lose all your motivation, you will lose all your curiosity and you will lose the whole purpose for what you were doing this which was what
so just like we have an Arabic program, we've also got to have a systematic what Quran program and they need to go hand in hand with each other.
I am not interested in teaching you Quran the way that an Arabic teachers, Arabic teacher teaches the Quran. And Arabic teacher says, here's the surah. Here's all the vocabulary from the surah memorize this vocabulary. And now you can read the surah without a translation, meaning give me a vocabulary list of vocabulary list looks like a table doesn't it? Right? The thing with tables and memorizing tables is what happens with them.
You forget them. You only remember them for the purpose of a quiz or a test. You do not retain that that that knowledge you can't do you know how do you know how much I memorize the vocabulary of the Quran?
In how much have I read okay, you know how much time I spent memorizing vocabulary, the Quran, zero.
I have never spent time memorizing the vocabulary of the Quran not my entire life.
You want the secret? One secret?
Because I need you to trust me. I want you to be better at studying the Quran than I am.
I'm not interested in impressing you with what I know. I'm interested in empowering you to surpass what I know, to give you the tools to surpass me, because we're interested in furthering and understanding of the Quran. That's what we're trying to do.
And you can do it. How do you do it? Well, I was a huge fan of Dr. Osama Rahim Allah in Urdu, and I used to listen to his daughter of the Quran. He had 108 hours. It was 108 hours of audio, where he went through the entire Quran in Urdu Ajdabiya it was 108 hours. But I said this is too much information. So I said SOTL Bacara 25 hours or something. I listened to it 12 times.
While I was studying what?
Arabic You know what happened? I didn't just now know those ayat. I knew the lessons from those Ayat as taught by Him. I also started connecting the Arabic I was learning in this class with the Quran I was studying with him. This started becoming one thing. You would think these are two things but as you progress, they started becoming one thing. And then as I as he was
explaining, sometimes he will translate something, and I would look at that iron acid. But that's not what I think about it at all the Why did you translate this way, and I would mark those places in yellow, and say I need this needs to be this is a problem I need to solve. This is a challenging portion, right?
So what I've done on being a TV is I've done a 20 minute at a time commentary on the entire Quran
on the whole thing,
and what I'm going to work, you're not going to do this, now, you have a clear goal for 10 days, I've given you what you need to do for 10 days, forget about everything else. After these 10 days are done, I'm going to assign you a surah
my lectures on that surah I want you to listen to that lecture for a whole month,
over and over again. Social media, YouTube, you know, podcasts, all that stuff. You listen to one thing, you listen to something new, then you listen to something new, you listen to something new, you retain what,
nothing. But if you're listening to me talk about one surah over and over and over and over again. And it's not going to be a dakara it's not going to be huge like that, it's going to be something smaller, like so to veriato. So to Joomla, or certain number, or even I think we're going to start from the last 10 solos, because you know them by heart already. Let's start with familiar territory, right? Let's feel a command over that material first. So let's say we start with suitable modeling. You're going to listen to my lecture and so tomorrow, not once you're going to listen to it, what 12 times 13 times and you know what, you're never gonna you're not gonna write any notes down.
Don't write a single piece of just listen, just listen, listen in the car, listen while you're cooking. Listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, over and over again. And you know what's gonna start happening? If I stopped you at any point and sort of narrow in and I said, What is our data? What is what is you can zebu? What is the what is your do? What is your team? What's your hot dog? What is Elmo, Celine, you will know it
immediately. Immediately, not only will you have learned Arabic, you will actually have made progress in deepening your relationship with a surah. And now when you recite that surah you know it so well, that you're just sitting there at an E party and somebody says, Hey, could you pass me the salt? And they say no, this my salt is not your salt? And you say Yeah, well your own on my own.
They stop people from even giving small favors. The if you will not be like let me prepare for this halacha Hold on, it's somewhere in my notes is somewhere in my notes. Where is it? Where is it no heard, the I will just be in your head. The lesson will become living and it will just roll off your tongue.
The situation will remind you of the what
of the IR immediately the IR will come in here. That is the most beautiful thing that can happen to you, is it not? You're living life and the word of Allah comes in your head, you're having a conversation and it comes in your head. Now that's one surah Now imagine another month, another Surah another month, another Surah another month, another Surah and Arabic all at the same time what's happening with the Arabic
it's building. And you know what? The more you build the Arabic alongside the Quran, your motivation to study more Arabic will become stronger. But if you leave Quran behind and keep focusing on Arabic, your motivation to study will drop and you will become hopeless in your study of Quran to you, I've got to show you how to build this step by step by step together. And in over the next year or so in sha Allah, a couple of jewels of the Quran. Don't worry about I've gone through the entire Quran.
Quality over what?
Man I'm telling you if you knew two jewels of the Quran, well, toujours Okay, two out of 30 what percent is that?
percent is that 6% 7% Maybe that percentage, you know what you've already covered over 90% of the vocabulary.
a couple of Jews, if you do it, well, then you go somewhere, you know what's gonna happen, you're gonna read a whole two pages, and it'll be three words that are difficult. You're gonna read another couple of pages of one word that was difficult.
You don't have to get intimidated by off to go through the entire Quran. You just gotta go step by step and you got to trust me. I've written the textbook is already there. And the video lessons are already there for your future studies. None of that is relevant now. And I'm going to walk you through all of it after you take your foundational exam, which is intent days. So just follow a path, follow a path. You know that many of you are watching this on YouTube or watching online. I just want you guys everybody to know this. You can search my name on YouTube and find 1000s of videos. I talk a lot.
Okay, you stop
1000s and 1000s of cartoons, animations, shorts, all kinds of stuff, right?
But that stuff is in every direction. I need you guys to be focused in a particular direction to say, Hey, I'm going to start from Fatiha. And I want to get to know us and I want to have a real relationship with his book. And then I want to keep deepening that relationship with this book before I let you go for the prayer. And I'll spell out what you know, I'll have Alena put it on the screen. Also, what a website you can go to.
One thing I will tell you is I myself right now, I'm very much a student of the Quran. So I'm teaching you as not a teacher, but as an advanced student. I'm just ahead of you, that's all. But that doesn't mean I'm ahead of scholars, they're ahead of me. And I'm trying to catch up with my own learnings. So my own work on the Quran keeps getting enriched, and the more I learned, the more I pass down to who
to you guys. And then eventually a time will come for some of you that are speeding up, you are picking up momentum, you're going to be ahead of me.
You're going to be because I'm just a student, I'm just learning and some of you just be ahead. I'm like, Hey, can you help me now? Can you help me too? Because this is not a contest. This is just Allah opens some doors for others for some people and he opens other doors for others. There were students I know that I taught in a class like this one that have already finished their PhDs in Arabic studies and Quran studies and from Makkah and other places and I learned from them even though they started with me, they will do far surpassed me in far surpass me and you guys will do if that's if that's your intention, inshallah. Tada. So,
let's make the intention that you're serious about developing a relationship, I really grounded relationship with the Quran, and Inshallah, after the class, I won't talk to you about Arabic recommendations. I'm going to talk to you about your how to begin your journey with the Quran itself, like what does it actually mean? To have a relationship with the Quran, and to have a lifestyle that's defined by our relationship with the Quran so let's take a break for Salah BarakAllahu welcomes to the molecule after these 10 days we went through an entire course of study beginning with there are three kinds of words in Arabic and it's an affair than a half. An SM is a
person place thing. Idea, adjective adverb or more, is a word stuck in either the past tense the present tense or the future tense. Have is a word that makes no sense unless another word comes after it. When we started studying the ISM, we discussed that an ism has four properties status, number, gender and type. When we studied status, the first of them the first lesson under it was the forms of status or offer or NASA or job we discussed at the time that refer has two jobs. One job is that it's the doer. The other job is it's the default, if you have no reason to make it anything else leave it in dollar form. nosode has two jobs, which is either it's the detail of
the object of a verb or it's beat up by a half of NASA, which we'll come to a little bit later. Java also has two jobs, it's either after an of which is a mobile fillet, as we will see later on or it comes after a half of job so that's your forms of status or NASA job. The second lesson we studied under Status was how to tell status, you can tell status by ending sounds or by ending combinations by ending sounds I mean or on for refer or unfairness II or in for jobs
and by ending combinations I mean, Annie or ah for to refer Aney or a for to nurse of a knee or a for to Job una or Ooh for plural refer ina or E for plural muscle ina or E for plural job, and then tone or two for plural feminine refer 10 or D for plural feminine nossob and 10 and T for plural feminine, John, this is what I meant by ending sounds and ending combinations. The third note I put there was pronouns or rebels. What that means is the independent ones are rather and only the attached ones can be considered nossob or Java but more on that a little bit later. Okay, then we talked about light status versus heavy status. Normally and SM in Arabic should be heavy. All the
words you've memorized on page six Muslim on Muslim and Muslim in Muslim, anti Muslim anti Muslim Nene was the Munna Muslim in a Muslim Ina, Muslim or non Muslim and Muslim 18 was the meta anti Muslim, a tiny Muslim detainee was Lima tone Muslim anti Muslim item. All of those are heavy. The light version of them would be mostly Muslim and Muslim me mostly mom mostly me, mostly me. Mostly mostly me mostly me. Personally, my two Muslim anti Muslim it was the meta Muslim, anti Muslim, anti Muslim to Muslim at
Need Muslim it we have only four reasons in Arabic to make an Assam light otherwise it should be normally heavy. Another thing that is important to note when this figuring out what is the status of an Islam is we should always look for the combination first and look for the sound second, always look for combinations first. The four reasons for an SM to be light are either it's somewhat off, because I'm off always has to be light no one Teflon, or it is someone you're calling ya carry mu Yeah, they do, etc, etc. The one you're calling has to become light. Incidentally, it's in your notes, but I didn't teach it to you. When you call someone who's on MODAF then they also have to be
nestled. What that means is you don't say Ya Rasulullah you say? Yeah, Rasulillah you don't say yeah, Abdullah? That's wrong. You say? Yeah. Abdullah. So the Buddha has to become Nasir when it's a if you're if it's being called. But if I just called Zaid, I say as they do, I leave him refer again if I call someone who's a word. I'm above like Allah's name is Rob bull Alameen or Bula Alameen. But when I call him I don't say yeah, Rob Bull. I mean, I say yeah. Rob Bell al Amin. Yeah, Rob Bell, Al Amin, or Allah whatever Allah's name says and will often will offer they are hamara he mean, or camel hockey mean, when when I call him I say yeah, camel hockey mean. Yeah, comma L hockey Minya or
Hama Rahimi? But if I just call him directly with just one of his names, like your Rahim, I say Yara he mu Yeah, he moves. So the only time that becomes nossob is if it's a mobile app. Anyway, so the first reason once again, just to recap, the first reason was for an SM to be light is AMOLED off the second is if you're calling them the third is absolutely no. So La Ilaha is light. Laura you ba Fi is light like Raha 15 is lightest color enough theologians absolute categorical no in Arabic. And then the final reason why in Islam should be light is that it's partly flexible. The technical term in Arabic is olam Norman ASAF, will do books of grammar called the Roman Serif that doesn't matter
we call it partly flexible. I told you there are two things wrong with a partly flexible one it always has to be light. And two, it cannot take the e sound, who are Ibrahim Ibrahima and Ibrahima, there are seven different kinds of partly flexibles but in this course I only made you responsible for two of them, which are places and non Arabs a place could be Arab and still be partly flexible, like MK two MK Katama Cata or yesterday boo yesterday by yesterday BA and the only exception to this if it's a foreign name like Ibrahim is a foreign name use of as a foreign name. It's not Arab name, but if a foreign name becomes fully flexible the only way it can do that if it's made up of three
letters, like no one you know, no one no hand no hand or Luton, Luton, Luton or I don't know a location I don't I didn't end adenine so that can that can happen. An exception to this exception, which I didn't teach in this class is actually the word for Egypt, Miss Lu, Misra, Misra. Even though it's the letters it's still partly flexible. I didn't drop that bomb on you earlier. But now it's time for you to deal with the pyramids. So Miss through Misra and Miss Allah. And the reason for that is actually the word missile is an Arabic word already, which means countryside. And then missile is also the word for a non Arab land Egypt. So there was a confusion between the Miss Miss
of the word that's Arabic and miss or the word that's not Arabic. So even though it's three letters, making it fully flexible would confuse it with the actual generic Arabic word muslin. So the Quran when you use the when you see the word missing in the Quran, and it's fully flexible, that refers to countryside, and when you see the word missing in the Quran, and it's partly flexible, that refers to the land of Egypt, so easy to miss run for in Alico, masa ultimate Soto Baccarat is just any countryside, but an A Sally malcolmus surah. Light partly flexible. Misra. That's referring to what? Egypt Okay, so that's the difference between them once again, going now I'm gonna go briefly, we
said the forms of status regardless of job, we so far said sounds and combinations for how to tell status and pronouns or rebels. Then the third was light status versus heavy status and the four reasons a word should be light. And then finally, we talked about the flexibility of status fully flexible, partly flexible and non flexible. The vast majority of words in the Arabic language are fully flexible. That's what you learned on page six ending sounds and ending combinations. That's the whole system. Non flexible words are a handful of words in Arabic that don't change whether they refer or not of origin. The wrong thing to say is they are not raphanus Virgil, the right thing to
say is they do not show refer or NASA or jewelry, they do have a status. They just cannot show it to you. An easy example of non flexible wear
words is words that end with an F, like Isa, or Houda. Or have, once they end with a live, you can't do anything, but it's not limited to that there are others too. That leaves us with the partly flexible category. And again, we covered this already, but just to remind you, partly flexibles for you right now our places and non Arabs got off a version is Ooh, the newest version is and the Java version is also incidentally, going back on light and heavy. One important reminder is when you put on a word, like I will, mostly more than we no longer care about the question of light versus heavy, but you should know how to say the Muslim chart with Al on it, because it's different from the light
chart. And it's different from the heavy chart. It's its own identity. So let's go through that. I will mostly mu l Muslimah. Al Muslimeen. Al Muslim Manny al Muslim Aney l Muslim ne l Muslim Muna al Muslim ina l Muslim Ina, l Muslim a to Al Muslim atta and Muslim hottie and Muslim Italia Muslim atonia Muslim, a tiny Muslim ah to obviously Marathi, obviously Marathi. In other words, the extra Nunes on the combination stay, that means go away. That's what I Okay. That was our study of status. Then we went on to the number the study of number with a singular we already know the pair is Annie Aney Aney. We already know the issue with number study was the five kinds of plurals that's really
where the the meat of the subject was five kinds of plurals. The first kind of plural is the masculine plural Guna. Ina ina which you memorized as Muslim Munna Muslim in a Muslim Ina. Those plurals are referring to people or intelligent beings, people or intelligent beings Jin's Angel, sometimes it can even be used for Allah subhanaw taala for royalty. Then you have the turn at an atom, which can be used for women, but it can be used for nonhumans to like I turn it into my watunes Mr. Watson, it can be used for Muslim women to Muslim out to a Muslim out in Cafe Raton cafe right and when I feel cotton when I feel cotton, etc, right? Those are the feminine plurals then
there are plurals because the Arabs said so I gave you three words that are plural just because the Arabs said they're plural comun. Nason n are known technically they're called ESMO gemera. The words that the words that are plural by definition, just by definition, they're considered plural because the Arab said so that leads us to the technical category, broken plurals gemo Taxila broken plurals and the broken plurals are of two kinds human broken plurals and non human broken plurals the way the Arabs talk about this is Gemini taxi rockin and Gemini tuxedo alkyl. Possessing intellect not possessing intellect, no reference to your cousin. Anyway. So non human broken plurals. The Arabs
pretend that they're going to consider it a CI what that means is they might use a fiddle with it that's feminine singular. They might use an adjective for it that is also feminine singular. They might use a pointer for it heavy that is feminine singular. That's what that means that they're considering it a she would human broken plurals like Hola, Ma, or aquarium are words like that words that refer to human beings Ambia Rasul, kuffaar, etc. Those kinds of words can be considered chi, but can actually be considered what they really are. So to take two opposite examples for you to remember, Rachel and Nisa are both broken plurals regional and missa. Region means men. Nisa means
women and they're both broken plurals. regionalen could be considered singular feminine, grammatically, or plural masculine, because that's what they really are. This could be considered singular feminine grammatically, or feminine plural because that's what they really are. So your two options are either singular feminine or reality. Those are your options. Okay, that's our study of number number gets done. The only other comment I'll make as a helpful hint for you. Is Broken plurals are mischievous. You don't know they are working plurals until you learn their what? Meaning without meaning they look like singular because they end with ending sounds. They don't have
combinations that give them away okay. So that was status and that was also number moving on to gender. We don't study the masculine because the assumption in Arabic is every SM is by default, masculine we only study the feminine. Within feminine there are two categories real feminine and fake feminine. Real feminine, requires common sense which is becoming more and more rare nowadays. But real feminine is a biological quality that has been around since the beginning. Since Allah created other Marlena Salama Mother, how was salam O Allah, that's real biological feminine, whether it's animals or human beings, that's the female. Now the fake feminine is where the work grammar
work comes in. Because in English we have he she and it but in Arabic even for the it, there's either going to be a Hua or a here there's no it technically so everything has to have a gender because everything has four properties. A book has four properties, including gender. The sun has four properties including gender. That doesn't mean the sun
