I felt this. Thank you for making the record
can we start the class
this below salat wa salam ala Rasulillah. Marla Le he or SOFIA is married.
We're going to start by calming your nerves. Because yesterday things started so nicely and smoothly. And then at the end, they're like there's too much happening. There's so much information, how do I keep up, relax, my job is to teach you but also to make sure you keep it not just to go through this railroad but actually retain insha Allah. So let's start a little slowly today. How many kinds of words are there in Arabic?
There are three kinds of words in Arabic and Assam, a farad and a half. What's a half?
A word that doesn't make sense, by itself, unless
followed by another word. Very good. Okay. So that's how we will learn how to.
But it's it you cannot learn how to by itself, because it doesn't make sense by itself. So we'll learn some things about the ISM and some things about the theory. And along the way, we'll end up learning some things about the Huff Huff is kind of like a clingy cousin who just wants to hang out with either ism, or a fear and so we're going to learn him along the way. He's not a main character. The two main characters are actually what
is some n? Field? Okay? How he's basically kind of like a loser. He's like, can I hang out with you Assam? Can I want to hang out with you here? Please? Can I hang out with you? So he just kind of either is clinging to an ism or clinging to a feeling okay? What's a fairly
a word that has the time associated with it, either the past or the present or the future we call them verbs in English. Not words. Verbs say it stayed with me. Verb now say Volkswagen.
Some of you people say walks vegan.
So verbs, that's okay, past, present or future. And then there's the ISM. And an ism is complicated. It's a lot of things at the same time. What are those things?
person, place, thing, idea, adjective, adverb, and more. And you can tell Islam is pretty complicated. And because it's complicated, it takes me three days to help you understand Islam actually dedicate three days of this program, just to help you understand Islam. Okay? And we're in day two. Everything we're doing for these three days is only about what? Islam even if we use the feral, we use the fail only so you can help us understand the Islam. So our focus is 100% on Islam right now, okay. Now, when it comes to Islam, I said that Islam has four properties, I want you to think of it like when we are studying Islam, we're gonna study four chapters, think of it like that
four chapters in this book called Assam. And the first chapter is called status.
Then the second chapter is called number and the third one is called gender. And the last one is called type. Those are the four chapters when you study those four chapters. Okay, you know what? I understand the Assam. Okay? Right now we are in the middle of trying to understand chapter one, the hardest chapter in Arabic. This chapter is so hard, Arabs mess it up.
Forget us, Arabs mess it up. Okay, this is not an easy chapter. And I wanted to do this chapter first. Because if you get this right, then everything else that follows depends on this one. You know, in mathematics, there's multiplication and addition. And then everything else that comes in mathematics down the road, depends on those two things. multiplication, addition, subtraction, division, those four things, everything else is based on that you can get to the highest level of math later on what the foundation is still these basics, right? That's what I want you to think when you think about what's what property status status, is that that important, okay? Now, here's
if you've studied Arabic before, you may realize this is not how you learn Arabic in any other class. This is a complete bit that
I am exposing you to because I understand how English speakers think, because I had to learn Arabic. Like you I was sitting in your chair at some point trying to make sense of this stuff, right. And when I saw the the official approach used, it just didn't make any sense to me. And I come from a tech background. And then in tech, you want to have systems in place you want to you want to put things in regimens and, you know, so you can, you want to see in a hierarchy and architectures scaffolding, you double click this folder, these files open up, you click that folder, subfolders and diagrams, that's what I want in your head, I want diagrams in your head, Arabic, three kinds of
words, when you double click Arabic, you get SM Ferrell, and how, when you double click ism, you get four folders, you get a folder called status. Another one called number another one called Gender another one called type. When you double click status, when you go inside status, you're gonna find four lessons. And the four lessons are the forms of status, how to tell status I made you write this down yesterday, the forms of status, how to tell status, light, heavy status, and flexibility of status. We don't know all that stuff yet. We don't. And that's okay. But I do want to take the hardest part of yesterday, which was the end, the end of yesterday was definitely the hardest part
of yesterday. And I want to start by making that part easy again. So we're going to start with the end of yesterday, fix that up, because you may have gaps in your understanding, and then we're going to go forward. Okay, so the first thing I want you to note is then we're coming back to page six, even if you don't understand it, it is absolutely essential that you memorize this. It is not a luxury. This is not making you memorize something that you will not use. I guarantee you every day of your Arabic learning for the next few months. You will need this. You will need this so please show it on the screen. Not me. I don't want to look myself okay. So mostly men, mostly men, mostly
men, mostly money, mostly mainly, mostly mainly, was the Muna misdemeanor, misdemeanor. And I want you to understand why you're memorizing this. So let me explain again, this is broken up into how many groups
good group one is called Muslim or non Muslim and Muslim in what's in group two? Was the Imani Muslim, a Muslim any what's in group three? Was the Munna Muslim ina Muslim ina Now some students come to me and say it was thought only and Eeny meeny meenie miney moe, I don't understand there's too many unis.
You know, you know what you're doing? You're bunching everything together. And then it sounds intimidating and overwhelming. What am I telling you to do? First, break it up into how many groups keep them separate you jumble things together, you're gonna mess yourself up.
Math class mathematics or good mathematics teacher? When students do their work sometimes students do they don't do their work neatly. They write everything on top of everything, and they get the answer wrong. Right? Even though they understand all the concepts, they don't separate neatly. So what does a good math teacher tell you to do? Separate light write the numbers separately. Put this neatly so you can see what's going on? Because then you're taking a test and you're all anxious and you're writing all messy when you gotta go because after you do your answers, you want to go back and check if you did everything right. If your answers were messy, you can't check your work. But if
your if your process was neat and clean, you can check your work, same logic. Clean it up. Mostly men, mostly men, mostly men, separately, then what was the money mostly mainly mostly made any? Then what was the Munna Muslim Mina Muslim Ina? If you try to look at this all at once, jumble it together Muslim
you're just gonna mess yourself up and you will you'll miss the point. So now each of these three groups is made up of how many members
each each group has three members. The first member is always refer
the second member is always NASM. The third member is always John. Is that clear? So when I say mostly men, mostly men, mostly men was the moon is what refer Muslim man is now Muslim in is John. Okay, then why do we have three groups? Why not just have one group? What's the difference between the first group and the second group fine, even Muslim Annie is another Muslim Aney is now some Muslim Aney is job. The same thing? I find a subject even in Muslim Munna Muslim Munna is refer Muslim INA is not some Muslim INA is John. So if it's always refer
Now some people refer NASA jar Raafat nossob jar. Why do we have three groups? Because the first group is for what?
For singular words one Masjid One Book, One Muslim. The second group is for what? To Muslims and refer to Muslims and nurses to Muslims in jail and mostly Munna is for who
more than two Muslims in refer more than two Muslims in nossob and more than two Muslims in general. Does that make sense so far? Okay. So now we did it this way right top to bottom Muslim and Muslim and Muslim in was the man he was the man he was the main he was the Munna misdemeanor misdemeanor. We did it top to bottom, if you look at it across, like for math class, if you look at it across the x axis, instead of the Y axis, if you look at it across the x axis, what's the common thing in mostly Mon? Mostly Manny and mostly Munna? What's the thing that's in common? They're all refer that's one refer to refer and three refer. And mostly men, mostly mainly, and mostly Mena. What do
they have in common? One, number two, number three, but they're all muscled. And if you look at the bottom, one Muslim in Muslim, a Muslim, Ina, what do they all have in common? They're all John. Now why am I making you memorize this? Because I want Page Six if I meet you five years from now, and he says,
I took your Arabic class and I said page six.
And what are you going to say? What's the one Muslim and Muslim in Muslim and he was the mainly Muslim and a Muslim Muna Muslim and non Muslim Ina and I'm gonna say which one is plural? Giada?
I'm gonna say this to you. I kid you not I will say that what? Which one is plural, John? And what are you going to tell me? You're gonna say Muslim, and I'm gonna say you are a good Muslim.
Okay, there's a pun intended in the head.
So good. Now you understand the logic of this chart. Now, a page before this in your notes
is page five, this is page six. And so this here is page five.
Here's what I want you to do.
I told you I we have to figure out whether each of these is refer or Nussle or journal. But I want you to understand the system, we always look for combinations. First, we always look for what combinations first. So here's what I want you to do. I want you to go down the whole page. And every word that you think has a combination, put a C on it, I don't want you to figure out what the combination is just put a C on it. If you just read the Word and if the end of it sounds like a combination, ni a ni a ni, una you know, just put a C I'll give you a minute, find as many as you can from the first column and the second column, okay
you can talk to each other if you like.
Would anybody like to share the first combination on the first column? Show of hands, please, if you could tell me what the first combination is in the first column? Yes, young man. What number the number?
Which number? 21. He says, Actually, Danny, Does everybody agree?
Yeah, Annie. No. Go back to page six. This one says keep this word in your head. I'll wily Danny. Go back to page six. It's a combination. He says which combination does it match?
Because we've got six combinations was Slimani Muslim any Muslim? A name was the Munna Muslim, Mina Muslim, Ina? If it's a combination, it's got to match one of them. Which one does it match?
Yes. To our to refer. So the answer for Ali. Danny is to refer Do you understand how to use page six? Okay, who's got the next combination?
Yes, young man over there all the way.
23 Very good. And what do you think? What does it match on page six.
I don't know what you said. Say it again. Jar. Okay, let's read it again. I'll
try to read that for me.
I'll Accra Boonah now go to page six. Go to page six here.
min see what I'm trying to look for what sound at the end guna see if you find it and tell me what you know about that word that sound
excellent plural. Rafa, what's the Arabic word on page six that matches this?
muesli mostly Munna alacra buena de una una matched. Yeah. So this is plural and what? What offer make sense? Do you understand how to use the combinations now? Okay? I don't ever want you to turn your page back and look at page six. Then flip it again and look at it again and flip it again and look at it again. What do I want?
You see Allah crapola you say Muslim non Muslim and Muslim in Muslim anti Muslim anti Muslim any Ding ding ding Muslim Munna. This is third column first member, this is plural Rafa, that's what needs to happen in your head. Do you understand? You see what how you're going to use page six. Okay, so let's see if you can do this without looking at page six now.
Anybody else? This is this. I'm gonna give this one away. This is a combination. This is a combination number 25. Yes, go ahead. Yes.
an insanely good reading now what do we do?
To NASA or to just
I don't know.
I'm not impressed.
I'm not impressed. Little depressed. Actually. I put a lot of work in teaching and this is what you come up with. guys helped me out here. Alone. zany. Yes. All the way in the back end, man.
Speak a little lower. I still hear your voice
to NASA Berger.
She was right.
But the pain you felt when I said he was right. And you said the exact same thing? And I said
you were sure? Okay. Well, this is my way of building confidence. Isn't it? Okay. 29 still ladies turn. Let's see somebody else somebody else somebody who's never spoken before? Yes, go ahead. No, no, why don't you guess?
Oh, very good. Holly. Dina, she says is Ina, which is a combination of three nasib or three jar. Do you agree? Very good. Now you you got the system. You got the system?
What do you look for first in a word should you check for combinations first or should look for sounds first?
Very nice. Okay guys side 31 What you're going to do? Yes your man. Yes gray hoodie.
Three offer? I like it. Three refer because it matches what word on page six that's in your head that lives in your head? Mostly Munna? Mostly Munna. Very nice. Okay, still. Gentlemen, I need one more from you. Number 33. Yes.
Three, NASA or job? Very good. Three NASA. What? Is this feeling better than last night already? Ah, you have to learn to trust me. Even if I leave you in anxiety the night before. I will help you. Okay, just learn to trust me through these 10 days. I need to build that relationship with you. Because I know exactly how I make you feel yesterday actually, I was thrown off. Because I thought I was told that it's just a lot would be a 10. But then some people had the thing and they said no, we need to still have it and I'm 45 so I lost 15 minutes of my planning. So the time I was going to use to reduce your anxiety, we were praying.
So today we're praying a 10 so inshallah it's I've planned accordingly because it's all planned in my head. What kind of psychological games I'm going to play with you. It's all planned in my head. So that kind of messed with my plans a little bit. Okay, anyway, so Molina everybody's clear is plural Nossal berjaya. Yes.
Lee hula Nene lady side again. Somebody who has not yet volunteered. Yes, young man. Go ahead.
What you're saying what you're saying
what is it
To Nussle or to jar very good very good I like I like
okay let's go to the other side
before my Kathina
ladies steal your turn
I do want to say yes go ahead
but how do I even point correct because we know where no matter where I point the person I don't point to answers. How do I do it?
You have to whoever I
gotta come up with a system but yes, do it again.
Actually, I didn't pick you the one in front of you Okay.
to NASA Ben Jarvis Correct. Yeah. to Los Angeles correct
what it says Mikey finos to
Three in R sub three. How can somebody turn this into a two?
If this was two, how would you say it show hands? If this was two? How would you say the Yes? Yeah, yeah. Marquis Fany. Yes, Mikey thenI because it would have matched muesli mainly. That would have been too good.
on the way far neighborhood Yes, young man.
Three Rafa, this is what I like to confidence in his voice mashallah three Rafa everybody agree? Three Rafa is correct.
not only should you tell me what it is you gotta tell me the word from the Muslim chart that you use to tell me I want you to I want to know you made that connection. Yes sir.
Mostly mainly good.
To NJ to nestle Virgil. Very nice. Very nice.
I didn't bring chocolate with me today.
But tomorrow I'll bring inshallah because I have a
who can answer this one?
No, I just want 24 I don't care about anything else. I want this one
if I had chocolate I would have given you for this one if you get it right what do you think
how disappointing yes
it's nothing with sound I like this one better
I like this one better to Yes.
I love it. I love it. The shot fees are saying one job had a visa say I love it
the answer is one job.
And I will tell you why. Because on page six, you see mostly my knee right? But I never said Muslimah Nin I didn't say that. If I didn't say it you can't use it. What it says is what it means there is no such thing as mostly man Ninh. So if you see an on an or in you have to go back to what
you have to go back to sound that came close to being a combination, but it's not a combination. You clear Okay, now watch this.
Let's see if you can do this one. I'm gonna make one up
let's see what you got.
I'll take votes
What do you think? One refer in
three refer right?
Mostly, mostly Muno mostly Meenu
does it match a combination? Yes or no?
It matches a combination
you memorize clearly memorize mostly one Muslim and Muslim men Muslim, anti Muslim, anti Muslim, any Muslim or non Muslim? You know, Muslim eat no. Muslim Munna was Lemina. Postimees doesn't match a combination.
Oh ahead of time. Okay. You're right.
We'll solve this one today. We'll solve this one today. So far, so good.
we don't have to go through all of it. Because now I know you get it. Now. Come back to page six.
In Arabic, there are either sounds or what
combinations and the purpose you can tell the purpose of combinations, combinations tells you a couple of things. They tell you the status. But they also tell you how many isn't it? They tell you the status and they also tell you how many if you see Annie, it told you it's rougher but it also told you something else. What else did it tell you? That it's too so you get two pieces of information at the same time from status. Now, there's another chart right underneath it
another chart right underneath that one? The first chart was mostly Moon Muslim men and Muslim in this chart is Muslim at tone Muslim and non Muslim attain it's the same word Muslim when we put a hijab at the end of it.
Okay, so once you wrap her her job at the end of it, it became what?
That's the feminine version. Now.
I have not taught you gender yet. Because we do status then we do number then we do gender so this is not officially studying gender yet. But some words in Arabic, you can convert them to feminine using a hijab. The Hijab is called the Tamar buta it's called a Dharwad Labuda you don't have to know that it doesn't increase your Eman if you don't know that it's just a little dark thing at the end okay. darbuka so Muslim is the masculine version was Lima tone is the feminine version but in the end, the rougher is on the nostril is on the job is in which is exactly the same as the above chart. So if you memorized was Lehman was Lehman was slim in then you haven't really learned
anything new when you say mostly my tone was the mutton was the methane. You shouldn't be intimidated by the first column because it's not new information. You're with me. Look at the second column Muslim, a tiny Muslim a tiny Muslim attaining is it really new information? Not really because it's still ani Aney Aney What's that extra towel doing? They're just letting you know it's to Muslim women in refer to Muslim women in Muslim to Muslim women in job. So actually if somebody memorized Muslim on Muslim and Muslim in was Slimani Muslim and he was limini then they have already learned mostly my tone was Lima 10 Muslim 18 was the Mitanni Muslim, a tiny Muslim detainee.
However, when you get to the plural column, you don't get Muslim a tuna.
So tuna is not halal in this situation. Okay, and Tina is not welcome Muslim Latina. There is no tuna and there's no Tina. Okay, so when it came to the plural column, something happened. So in the second chart, the only piece of it where there's something new is where
the feminine plural, the feminine one, plural. So let me tell you something that will stay with you throughout your Arabic studies journey. Women in Arabic grammar. When they get together, they want to do something different.
whenever women unionize in Arabic, they do their own thing.
This will happen in Islam. This will happen in fearing this will happen in pronouns. This will happen across grammar across grammar. Every time there's one woman Okay, two women still part of the rest of society, multiple women that said we're doing our own thing. We don't need no goona Ina, get out of here
it's it's taking the word Muslim
did add something new, it adds a tone.
thin, thin. This is a new thing we're learning now. Now let me tell you what this means. This means if you hear not tune, I'm not asking you to listen for tone. I'm asking you to listen for what? Ah tone. So you've got to hear along ah, and then a tone. And is that ta like a hijab? Or is it opened up?
The first column that I was closed up, it was a wrapped up. But this last one is what? Opened up. It's an open to us different words. If you see the round Ah, I don't care if you hear out on our Athan. It's not plural.
But if you hear if you see an open TA, and you hear a tune, that's not a sound. Even though it sounds like a sound. It's not a sound. It's actually a combination.
And you know the thing we learned about combinations listen to this part carefully. In combinations are two things the same in combinations. There's Ani and then Aney Aney are the same. Then you had una and what was the same? Ina ina was the same when you get our tone. What do you get? That's the same
thing. 10 is the same so the plural feminine nasib and the plural feminine jar are the same. There is no such thing in Arabic as muesli ma 10 That doesn't exist. That doesn't exist. Only our tone or 10. If you hear our tone, what are you talking about? Plural feminine? What? Round three are feminine. And if you hear it when you're hearing three R or three NASM feminine or three Jarrah feminine you with me so far. Now watch. What's the difference between una like mostly Munna and Muslim and this is important for Quranic Arabic.
Una includes men and women. I'll say that again. Una includes men and women. Ina also includes men and women.
But our tone and atan only includes
So the masculine is inclusive, but the feminine is exclusive. Okay, that's the rule in Arabic, the masculine is what? Inclusive and the feminine is exclusive when Allah will say, with a little more Tokina
right. This is guidance for who? I'll put the key in. Did you hear a combination? The people who have Taqwa plural. What status is that? Tina What do you think?
Three jar or NASA okay? Because it's in its masculine the masculine chart right? You know what that means? It includes men and includes women if ALLAH says who the little Ducati or Mata TRT
at him then you know what we would have said that's only for that's only for women. You understand? Okay, so repeat after me mostly Moon was demand Muslim men.
Mostly many Muslim mainly Muslim meaning
mostly Munna Muslim ina Muslim ina
good Muslim atone Muslim at 10 Muslim atin
is that new information now really mostly my tiny Muslim a tiny Muslim a tiny
Muslim ah tone Muslim ah team was Lima 10 new info Yep, say it for me mostly ma tone Muslim ah thin was Lima thin and what doesn't exist in Arabic?
Muslim ah, time does not exist in Arabic. Mostly my attend does not exist in Arabic. Now how many people here married?
Okay, if you're married, then you know that you don't invite your family and her family over at the same time.
Okay, that doesn't make any sense.
You can only have either her family over or your family over unless you're having suicidal thoughts and why both of them over.
But you don't do that. Okay. Now, there's a thing in Arabic. There's two word two things in Arabic that are in laws to each other. Okay, it's her in laws, his in laws. You know the own sound, the own sound. The own sound does not get along with this thing we call it
I will show you
L. L in Arabic means the L means what? The, but when you put on an or in on a word, it actually means a. This is not officially a part of our lesson, but I want you to know something which I will teach efficiently probably tomorrow. But I want you to know this ahead of time. L means what? The, but if you just hear on an oar in at the end of a word, it usually means what? Ah, a, can you put a and v at the same time on the same word? No. So if a word begins with L, it cannot end with
on an or you with me on n or n? So, what's the solution? Here's the solution that the Arabs came up with 1000s of years ago. They said there's mostly moon. Right? But if I want to put a lid on it, then I'll say I'll mostly moon
I won't say I will mostly Moon anymore. I'll just say one.
I will mostly No, don't write this down. Just listen for now. Okay. Now watch this. Mostly MMA done.
Mostly MMA doesn't have an owner at the end. What if I wanted to put a leash on this?
I'll most likely MMA to
I need you to know that if you here are two, ah, two, it's still a combination.
Even if it's not on, and it's just one reason, I'll tell you others. But even if there's no if you hear two, it's still a combination. What else is also going to be a combination.
l muesli Ma, T if you hear are thin or to steal combination. So
have you ever heard
Lahoma Kusama, Swati Well, are they have you heard this before? Okay, so they both end with E and E? Yes.
But I need you to know that one of them is a combination. And the other one is just a sound. Which one is a combination? It and which one is the sound?
Okay, so now here's my question. This is the real question. And the only is a sound you told you agreed? Yes. What status is of the is it refer or NASA or job?
Excellent. Why? Because it ends with E or on is an author or an is nestled E or in is John. But it's a similarity? A sound or the similarity or combination? It's a combination. So what's the status of a similarity?
Combinations usually get two answers. Remember, E now could be plural pneus of origin. muesli ma 10. How many times is mostly Martin in the chart?
So mostly mathy, a samosa tea. This could be what's the answer here?
Plural nasib or plural. John. Go back to page five.
Is Page five is not leaving us alone.
See if you find any feminine combinations on page five keep looking keep looking. No rush.
I like it. Some people call it out. 18. Yes. Let's zoom in.
Zoom in. That's the word. Yeah.
Here's my trick question. Can you look at this word, and give me the entire Muslim chart. But not with the word Muslim? But with this word?
No, the whole chart from the beginning from the masculine all the way.
Can you do it? Who could do it? I don't know. I don't know. That's a hard one. You were doubtful. So I'm gonna go with you. Yes.
No, the whole thing from the beginning of page six.
Go on. Solomon.
Solomon, Saudi hen.
you're still in the masculine chart.
Slowly honey. Slowly Haney good.
Bali Hoonah Salah Hina Saudi Hina now come to the feminine chart.
Foley her tone
Solly Hutton Solly hatin then, Saleh attorney Saleh detainee Saleh attorney then slowly hard tone. Smiley Ha, thin, solid, thin. What's the answer here?
Now some jar. But the feminine kind. Cool, huh?
You can see a word and you could see a whole chart in your head. You don't see a word you will see a whole chart and you're you can reconstruct not all the time. Don't try this at home with that. I tried it.
It feels so good in class, but I feel so bad when I go home.
What do you think?
It could be.
It could be job.
Right? It's feminine. Okay. I'm gonna give you a real test.
Pick a surah
called Nahal Okay, not
too late. already picked. First. 13 Ayato. So, here we go.
How did you do that? So cool.
All right. Let's start with this word.
Oh, no, that's not good.
Oh, that's terrible.
Oh my God, my coloring skills. Okay, Allah, you gotta what you got for me. I want to know the status. I want to know the status. Yes.
Yeah. nossob and Xander combination.
Sound? Why does it have the hijab thingy at the end? When we study gender? Not right now, when we study what? Gender what are we focused on right now on gender? What are we focused on? Good. So stay focused.
I want to know refer nossob or Java under Ruhi.
Clear? Clear? Everybody clear? It's John. Yeah, very good.
What do you think? ILAHA.
NASA bluntness of sound or some combination.
Some sound Okay. All righty.
A summer wa T
My first question is going to be what? What's my first question always sound or? That's always the first question.
Combination. Now the question is, which combination
three nasib or three jar feminine Good job has a very nice three nozzle or three jar Femen everybody see it? So you didn't get tricked by the fact that it wasn't thin. Even if you see it or at thin you won't get tricked. You know? Okay.
Let's see if you can handle this one. And in Santa.
Eileen Santa, they decide show of hands. Yes.
what does it match on page six.
What does it match on page six.
On Al Insana matches mostly Munna.
I forgive you now fix it. I won't let go until you fix it.
So, in sa na matches musli ma Ni is what you're saying. Inside na matches musli ma Ni
No, I forgive you again. Now try again.
Does it match any combination?
Does it match Ani? No. Does it match? Aney? No. Does it match una? No. Does it match Ina? No if it doesn't match any combination? What do you do?
Go back to sound so what sound is closest to Alan Santa?
Mostly mon doesn't match with me.
who were on
the double treble double rotatable? Yeah.
Okay, then what do you tell me the answer though?
What's the ending sound that you hear here in Ireland? Santa?
So what's the answer? No, let her let her answer.
Oneness of is correct. Excellent. Allow sometimes I want a student to go through a little bit of a journey to find it and find their own aha moment. Just because they're having a little bit of a few seconds extra to get to their aha moment. And you already got there doesn't mean you should get intellectual diarrhea.
That makes you know, but it's, it's not some dough. It's not some I heard you. It's not some NASA wait till you not?
Yes, I know, I know. But the job of a teacher is to help the one who's struggling, find their way you understand. And so you have to and as you're learning with me, I also want you to learn a few things about teaching.
Now, some of you are super smart. Some of you even use the word broken plural today, which means you've studied some stuff before. In fact, you've studied it with me, I want you to learn something about the mannerism of a class than the mannerism of a class. Some people are fast, some people are what. So now what happens in many classrooms is the teacher is very happy with the students that are fast, and very upset with the students that are slow. In my philosophy, the teacher's job is not the students that are fast, the teacher's job, the teachers test, the teachers test of their own ability is not the students that are fast. It's the students that are slow. And they're slow, because I
didn't explain something clearly enough for them. And I need to go make sure they can, it's not because they're slow, is because they needed some other explanation. So I need to find another way to explain. And another way to explain, which then when I slow down, the fast students are like, Come on already got it. Let's move on. Let's get this show on the road. When are we going to do belaga? What are we gonna do poetry, yo,
this lack of patience, you know what that means? You're never going to become a good teacher with that attitude.
So when you say either you're learning, and when you're not learning, what are you learning, learning to teach? That's when you're learning to teach. How do you take someone from step one with? And what do bad teachers do? When bad teachers hear students say the wrong answer the analytical?
Look at this guy. Seriously, I've been wasting my time all this time. You don't know the answer? Why can't you be like that one who said nothing for the last 45 minutes.
In other words, when someone's struggling, bad teachers, shame the student that's struggling, but actually, in my opinion, shame on the teacher, because the teacher's job is to make sure to actually encourage the ones that are struggling. And those turn out to be the best students. This has turned out to be the best to and this is not just for Arabic, this is teaching, teaching anything, you have to respect the people that are actually struggling. That's not a commentary on how stupid they are, and how you're smarter. Listen, some things will be easier for you and other things will be harder for you. And let me tell you something, the students and think oh, this is easy. I don't have to put
any work in this is easy when they actually get to something that's hard. They're not used to doing any hard work. Because everything was what for them. Easy. So the moment they hit a hard subject, they crash, because they never learned the tool to put in tools to put in the work. So they just crash and they have such a hard time keeping up. And then they get depressed. They say, I used to be so smart, and all of a sudden I became stupid. And there were people that were so slow in their answers. And now they're getting all the answers. And I'm leaving. Yeah, I'm stupid. No, no, you're not stupid. You're just not getting the right work ethic. Just because something that comes easy to
you, doesn't mean you don't need to put in the work. Don't develop that attitude. Okay? So, just because something is hard for you, stop comparing yourself to somebody else. Don't do that in your life, you will be a loser for life. Because you can always compare yourself to someone else who knows more than you. There's, you know, 1000s of people come here and pray in this community. I can guarantee you there's hundreds upon hundreds upon hundreds of them, if not 1000s of them that know a lot more than I do, but I'm not living in comparison. I know what I know. And I know what I need to learn. But the moment you compare this one has faster answers. This one calls out everything this
one raises their hand all the time. I hate them. I want to find out where they're parked with a slash their tires today.
There are there is an attitude isn't it? So don't be the annoying
don't do that. Read the room be develop empathy for fellow students. I want to create an environment where everybody feels encouraged. Yes, I will make fun of you because I enjoy doing that. But not because I think you're lesser just because I'm a teacher and that's part of my part of the perks of being a teacher is humiliating students in fun ways. Okay, all right. Okay. Let's go on. Nope fatin
molto fatin What do you think?
Yes my dear
John, singular excellent job excellent job. hussy Munna. Guys. Oops.
Costly see one. What do you think?
Yes. One refer excellent it's one refer. You guys are getting it movie. No one.
What do you think?
Even even Muslim Enon. No, no. Sound or combination?
Sound So therefore what status?
One, refer. You know, when I opened up the surah I skipped lots of words.
You notice that? Let's skip some less
I don't want to just go refer I taught you like four kinds of refer 1233 Feminine there's four kinds of rubber. There's four kinds of nuts of therefore kinds of jobs. That's what I've given you so far.
One refer the word Allah.
One job with me. Excellent. Okay, now we can move on.
This is going to be a new lesson. And like before, I'm going to ask you not to write anything down yet. Just pay close attention. Okay.
You can ask your question of course.
No, plurals are not always combinations, we will learn them in number. So today is status. And hopefully by the end of today, we can get into number and then tomorrow we finish gender and type Inshallah, okay. All right. So,
here's what I want you to know. So there's mostly more than mostly men and mostly men, okay.
You memorize this, you memorize it going this way. So this might feel blasphemous to you, but just bear with me. Mostly modern Muslim men and mostly men, which one is written differently?
The second one, what's an added letter that the Arabs like to add? I live. Yeah, that's just a standard of the Arabic language.
Now I want you to listen to something carefully. Sometimes an idea of the Quran ends with something rougher.
Sometimes it ends with something or sometimes it ends with something nossob sometimes it ends with something. John, listen to this.
Wallah. Who have oral Rahim. Rahim.
What's the last sound? You heard?
sukoon it wasn't on. It wasn't on and it wasn't in. But if you open up the eye of the Quran in the picture on the most half, you'll see
you'll see this. Okay, but the the carry did not say this. What did he say? Rahim and he stopped. You know why? Because this is something the Arabs used to do for 1000s of years. They wouldn't say the last sound because they're Arab. They know it without you saying it.
So their way of saying I've reached the end of my sentence is I'm not going to make the sound of the status. But since you're Arab or you understand Arabic, even without me telling you what the sound is, you will know what the sound is.
Okay, so this is the way we recite Quran. We don't recite Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Rama annual Rahimi Leakey Yomi Dini ear canal Buddha II canister you know, we don't do that
we soon so goon goon, why not? Because it's not there. But because for the Arab listener, you don't say it and it's already understood.
I'm gonna get you to the point one day Inshallah, where even when you don't hear it, you'll know what
It is even without hearing it you will know Okay, so that's one. Here's the other thing
what? Hola Hola for en Rahim
How do you if this was at the end of an ayah how would they read it?
They wouldn't read Rahim.
Do you see why the Elif is important?
So you see Rahim when you say Rahim men, but if you were to stop there, you wouldn't say Rahim you would say Rahima. So, if mostly mon was at the end of a sentence, if the first one was at the end of a sentence, how would you say it? Muslim? If mostly man was at the end of a sentence, how would you say was Lima? And then if mostly men was at the end of a sentence, how would you say it was slim?
You understand? So that's why the Elif is important for Audible purposes. The number one will sound different at the end of a sentence, okay? But if it's not at the end of a sentence, you will actually hear on an end. And that's just a side note. But now the new lesson for you.
Read the bottom line. What's the first word?
Mostly mu? I'll make it up top. Fine. What's the mu? What's the second word? What's Lima? And what's the third word? That's not what you memorize. What did you memorize? What's the one? What's the min
what you memorized is called the heavy version. What you memorize this called What? The heavy version? What makes it heavy an extra N sound. That's what makes the word a little bit heavier. What I put here is actually not the heavy version, but the light version. Mostly mu the heavy version of Muslim one. What's the light version of Muslim one? Muslim? What's the light version of Muslim men?
By the way, when I made it light what happened to the LF?
no longer needed? no longer needed Muslim. Ah, what's the lite version of Muslim in?
Mostly me, you with me? Now here's the thing. Unlike
Western standards, Arabs think heavy is normal.
Heavy is normal and light is unusual.
Heavy is normal light is one as a student of the Arabic language when I'm reading something in Arabic, and I see an ism. I expect that ism to be heavy.
I expect it to be one heavy. So if it's heavy, I don't say hey, are you heavy? Are you put on so much noon?
So I'm supposed to be heavy what you want. But if it's light, I say hey, who made you late, bro? What happened? There has to be a reason for it to be what?
But there has to be no reason for it to be heavy. Techies here know what the default is. Right? What's the default in Arabic? Heavier light. Heavy is default. That's normal. That's standard. But unusual situation is when you make it. Light. Okay, so you know how it sounds? This one's heavy. This one is light. Okay, now.
You've memorized mostly Manny. What else did you memorize?
Mostly mainly and mostly? Mostly? Mainly? Yes.
I'm just gonna
What did I do? In the second line? What in the world did I do?
What did I get rid of?
I got rid of that noon. I just got rid of it. Mostly man knee. I said you know what? You need some weight loss. I'm gonna get rid of the what? The knee? The light version of mostly my knee is mostly MMA without any
the light version of musli main knee is mostly may without knee and the light version of the second mostly mainly is knee without needed was mostly mainly without any. What's the third? Group you memorized?
Mostly Munna and what else? Mostly Mina? What else?
Can somebody volunteer to give me the light version of each of these?
Somebody would like to try go ahead, young lady. Yes.
Mostly Munna what's the live version?
Good job most LIMU. Very good, better then
Mostly me very nice
excellent mostly me which one of these normally which one should you find
top line and if you have a special reason special license then you can use the bottom line by the by two more days you'll know when to use the light version or when do you see the light version but right now you need to know there's a difference between the normal version and the light version Okay, so we didn't just memorize the Muslim one Muslim and every time I say Muslim one I need to hear the whole room Muslim one Muslim men Muslim in what's the money was the money was the money was the Munna Muslim Mina Muslim Amina we did some more today. Mostly my tone was sleep at 10 was the my team Muslim, a tiny Muslim, a tiny Muslim, a tiny Muslim tone, mostly mad thin, mostly mad thin.
Yes. Now I'm going to read that whole thing I will look at it together. I'll open a page six again.
And what I'm going to do is I'm going to read this
but I'm going to pretend that I'm reading the light version the whole time. Just so I know that you know how to convert it.
How would I read the first column? Mostly mu mostly Ma? Mostly me second column was li ma Muslim may Muslim may 3 column was li mu Muslim me. Mostly me. Okay, let's go to the bottom one. How would I read Muslim atone Muslim and Muslim atin How do you think Muslim or two? Muslim atta Muslim anti Muslim? Danny Muslim? Tiny No, that's wrong.
Mostly metta Muslim anti Muslim Atay What should I do here
what do you think?
Mostly to Muslim tea, Muslim tea. Every word every SM in Arabic is either refer every ism is either refer or pneus of or judge and every refer Nosler job is either heavy or light and if it's light I better find the reason
if it's heavy I don't care it's supposed to be heavy. If it's light I need to know why what happened when you say La ilaha illallah
look at ILAHA
is a lighter heavy
so as an as a student of Arabic Should I say something special is going on here or no?
I need to know why that happened. I need to understand something now let me show you something else
okay, read the first line la B are on later heavy.
La hola tuna lighter, heavy. La shafa. atone later heavy. They're all in the Quran. All top three are in the Quran.
Let's read the bottom line la Reba.
La light. La ilaha Lai La Ilaha
cool. There's a difference. These words mean if you if I was to translate badly, I'd say there's no friendship. Or there's no sale. There's no friendship. There's no intercession there's no doubt there's no God and there's no forcing there's no compulsion these are the phrases there is no and whatever word comes after. But in the Arabic Is there a difference between there is no followed by heavy and there is no followed by light which one of which one of them would you say is unusual?
So three of those expressions are more unusual than the other three. Now let me help you under understand this. I won't give you more lessons before Maghrib will do more work after maghrib light and heavy is we're in a pretty good place. Okay.
Just to help you understand the difference between no that's heavy and no that is what like this is only for nose by the way nose with isms
When I walked when I used to teach third grade, I was a teacher in third grade. And my stupidity was I thought, if I'm going to go into third grade class teaching these kids, first thing I should do is become their friend. I should do all kinds of tricks for them. I should put a pencil in my ear, take it out of this year. Right? I should, I should, you know, pull out a coin. I should tell them a scary story. I should tell them jokes. Oh, those kids loved me. They were like those class was a circus was supposed to be math class. But the first day, I just made jokes with them and jokes with them and jokes with and I didn't love it. Even the principal had to come in because the kids were
and then the question Is everything okay, here. I was like, yeah, yeah, they're just
okay, it's okay.
So I thought, first, I'll become their friend. And then after that, I'll do what, then I'll teach them the next day. I said, Okay, everybody, chapter to open the box. And what these kids do, now, do their thing with your ear.
And some other kids standing on the teacher look at this, and he stands on the desk and he starts dancing. I was like, Can you please sit down? He goes, Well, I could look you because I could do better than that. And they get
to class was
a circus animals like loosen the zoo? I couldn't control anyone, anyone at all. So now I realized me being a friend is not going to work. I have to what? lay down the law. So I said, Guys, no talking. Come on. No talking. No talking. Is anybody listening when I talked like that? That I said, No talking.
When I did that, what happened?
All of a sudden.
And they all calm down. Except one kid. One kid. I still get nightmares about this kid. He was sitting in the front desk, the desk that touches the teacher's desk. He was on that desk. He raises his hand. Uh, you know, the thing about raising your hand is you should raise your hand and then speak when you are asked. No, no. He raised his hand. He goes, Can I get some water?
He deflated my
I had so much authority when I said no talking and I get some water.
It's like he stabbed me in the gut. He took everything else like Yes. Go.
There's different levels of No.
There's different levels of no when I said no talking guys, no talking Come on No talking different level. When I said no talk,
different level or no.
Your kids, when they're little, you can catch me.
Then you run after them. Stop, stop, stop.
But you don't stop. You keep running. And then finally you stop running and they say You can't catch me.
Because their stop. Actually didn't really mean what? Stop, then you start tickling them and isn't stabbing, stabbing, stopping and then all of a sudden you're like, Oh, this is one of those fake stop. It's keep going. Then
you didn't stop. Like oh, so you went from the stopping which is kind of fun. Please stop it to a very serious topic. And they didn't know where the line was. And I just I I'm sorry. When I told you
know has lots of what
variations you got to read the room. You got to read the room? Sometimes there's no that is for the most part. No, generally no. Usually no. Like for example, you go to a hotel and you want to check in early. There are policies you can check in until 3pm We don't allow guests to check in until 3pm
that's no check in policy with some room for one
exception, but then you have an employee who has you know, a rough fight with their spouse that night and they say there's absolutely no way I will let you check in even after the check in time
did you want a no smoking room? I'm gonna get you a double smoking room. There's gonna be so so much smoke in your room there's gonna be a fire in that building because your room
in fact, I'll set fire to your room. That's what there's a different level. No different levels of you know, what Arabic does is so cool. classical Arabic does this. When there's a general No. Where there may be some room for exceptions. It's a normal No. And the normal notion be light it should be what? Heavy. But when there's a no and there's no room for any exception, unless stated there's no room for any exception, then it's going to be what? Like go back to the slides. Or the screen my screen now but judgment day there is no sale on Judgement Day. Allah says there is no sale
On Judgment Day, but he didn't make it an absolutely no.
You know why? Because Allah says himself in Allah Who stole Amina me Nina and fossa What and Why Allah Humby and Allah who will Jana? Allah has purchased their monies in their lives in exchange for Jana from believers.
So yes, most people won't be able to sell anything. But some believers have already made the sale in this life.
They're the exception so there's room for exception. He says On Judgment de la hola tone, the whole lot.
On fee he will a whole lot on there's no friendship on Judgment Day. On Judgment Day there's no friendship or there's some people that are Allah's friends on judgment day. Are there some people that are under allah shade on Judgment Day? Is there room for exception? Normal? No. Not a categorical No, a normal? No. He says lash out and nobody will be able to plead for anybody else on Judgement Day.
Nobody can make a case for anybody else. By and large. Is that true?
By and large. was true. Is there room for exception? Yeah. Yeah. Now you come to the bottom line now EBA. This book, Quran, la ray BA fi? Is there room for exception.
There is no doubt whatsoever in this book. There is no room for any doubt at all. So what does he do? He makes it what? Like?
He says there is no God except Allah. We translate that there is no God except Allah. But the way that he said there's no God, what did you do?
There's absolutely no room for anyone at all in any way, shape or form. Except this is a strongest way of saying no, it's not a normal Oh, there's no God generally except Allah. No, no, no, absolutely not except Allah. When it comes to forcing somebody to accept this religion, Allah says Allah Iqra, 15 there is no compulsion at all in any way, shape, or form. In terms of the religion, there is no exceptions. Now it could have been, you see a difference.
Now in English translations of the Quran, most of the time, you will find the top line is translated, there is no sale, there is no friendship, there is no intercession. And the bottom line is translated, there is no doubt there is no God. And there is no compulsion. Do you notice a difference in English? Not at all. You don't notice a difference, but the Arabic student doesn't know the difference. Yep. So the stuff that I'm teaching you this light and heavy business, this is just one example of why light and heavy is important. This is not the only thing light and heavy does. But I want to give you a taste of why are the Army Learning? What do I care about light and
heavy? What are we going to do with that you're going to do a lot with that, because it's going to give you a taste of what's happening in the Quran in different places. Right? And again, I'm giving you controlled examples. Do not try this at home, do not open up Quran and say, I see a light here. No you don't. That's not even an SM that's a feral. Hold on. You don't know how to tell the difference between an affair and yet. You don't know that many. You've got two days not even one and a half days of Arabic. So do not jump off the cliff and say I am ready for this light and heavy I'm going to give a football but this next week. I'm starting my own Instagram page. light and heavy
that's what I'm gonna call it.
Chill out. Chill out. I see a lot of people talk about ayat of the Quran and what they mean. And honestly it's like nails on a chalkboard like why are you opening your mouth please? Please don't
and I'm not into refuting or correcting someone else that's not my thing. But do I sit there and cringe Yeah, yeah, because I wish I wish we took the Arabic of the Quran more seriously so we can appreciate what Allah is actually saying. So now let's take some notes
we already wrote this so you're going to add the first thing was under Status we said number one forum sorry we changed the text direction forms of status Yes. which are
which are what
raphanus object and you already know what each one is Rafa is doer and more nestled is detail of the act and more and Jada is after us and more. I gave you that yesterday when we ended. The second thing was how to
tell status and we can tell status by a ending sounds
and ending combos are three groups. peer group,
plural group, does the third group
plural feminine group, the peer group Annie Aney, the plural group
una ina Ina, the feminine plural group
adding, adding that's how you tell status.
I don't know why that says three that should say B. I know it's all messed up that's okay
there's a C
I don't you don't know what that means yet, but I'm just gonna write that and you guys can understand it tomorrow inshallah.
Well, the right pronouns are what
pronouns are rebels. We'll see. We'll see what that means
before we break for the prayer, I want to finish your notes on light status versus heavy status. A normally an ism should be what heavy
there are four reasons to be
ill do we know them yet. No, but you should know that therefore.
Okay, there's four reasons in Arabic to be like
Okay, that's it. That's all you got to know.
Normally and Assam should be heavy.
There are four reasons to be light to make any some light remove than when what is 10. When,
on an in, that's called 10. When the green means on an in, removed and when or what's another way to make light.
Remove the end from the combination like what N like ni becomes what when it's light. And una becomes what? Ooh, that's all okay
maybe one more comment here that will help you
and that is
every word on page six can be made URL and you should know how to do it. You should know how to take any word on page six and make it what like that skill you need to have. So you can recognize that when that's happening in Quran Okay, let's take a break for Salah.
