00:05:36--> 00:06:14

one of the things that is very interesting to learn about the Quran is that when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was, especially in Medina, and there were tribes, Jewish tribes, and also tribes that were influenced by the Christian religion, because the Christian religion was found in the region. And even though many of the Arab tribes didn't become Christians, they were exposed to Christianity. And some of those ideas became part of their culture and heritage too. So they had, they had some knowledge of these things, and especially the Jewish tribes, they had influences even on the Arab tribes that weren't Jewish, and some of their practices got, you know, imported into

00:06:14--> 00:06:55

them. And the Quran is sometimes directly talking to the Jewish people. Sometimes it's directly to speaking to Al Kitab, the People of the Book, which includes the Jews and the Christians, and also it includes the some of the knowledge that had permeated that was already found within the region because of the influence of the Jews and the Christians and in those communities. So what's remarkable about the Quran is sometimes Allah azza wa jal speaks to both communities. And it's not just the, the average Jewish person or the average Christian person, person, Allah many times he speaks to the scholarship of the Jews and the scholarship of the Christians. And one of the most

00:06:55--> 00:07:26

amazing things about the Quran, you know, you'll find in religions, there's this concept of proselytizing, meaning you go to the people who know the least about your religion, or their own religion, and you try to convert them. So they're the poor villagers are there, they don't know much about, you know, their Islam, or they know much about their Christianity or anything else. And you go to them and you try to bring them over to your religion, you maybe you help them, you give them some humanitarian aid and things like that. And then you try and convert them over to your religion. But people generally you don't think you don't see that someone who's trying to increase their

00:07:26--> 00:08:06

numbers, and trying to bring other people towards their religion, their number one target is the most knowledgeable people of the other religion. Right? And but that's what the Quran does. The Quran goes after the scholarship of the Jewish people in Arabia, goes after the priesthood of Christianity and challenges them and speaks to them, and brings out things from their reality that otherwise people the general public didn't know. And there's lots to learn. But in this limited club, I want to share with you one particular thing of the hundreds of lessons we can learn. Because Allah, the way I want you to think about it is when Allah talks to the mushrik, goon of Arabia,

00:08:06--> 00:08:42

right, and he talks to the people that lived in Makkah, then it's important to understand something about the history of Makkah, it's important to understand who these people were and what their culture was like. And why is Allah talking to them in this way, so when Allah addresses an audience, it's beneficial to know the background or some things about that audience. So when Allah is talking to the Jewish and Christian people, then it's also beneficial to know something about Jewish and Christian history, and who these people are, what their tradition is, because Allah is interacting directly with them. And the Quran is oftentimes directly interacting with their material their work,

00:08:42--> 00:09:19

and what they believe. Social hadith is an interesting example of that if you look at the book of Genesis, the you know, the the Old Testament, that it begins with God created the heaven in the beginning there was like God created the heavens and the earth in six days and according to their some of their wording on the seventh day he rested. That's what they have with them. Right. So there's mention of nude mentioned of light and there's the mention of the creation of the heavens and the earth and 60s and SOTL Hadith. Allah will talk about neuter alot. So neurohormones Urbina ad he will be emailing him, also you Lucretia Homina lumati Eleanor H Allah Quran Tamsui welfare la

00:09:19--> 00:09:56

calm, right there's multiple references to light the light of Allah the light of revelation the light that Allah brings people his you know this so he brings the OMA out of darkness is back in towards the light right so then the light of judgment a the light we're going to need to walk all the way from wherever resurrected all the way into Jana May Allah complete all of our light on that day and the munafo Cone May Allah not make us from them. Who may some according to some of us, they don't when they get resurrected, they have some light, so they start walking with the believers. And then the light gets taken away and all of a sudden their batteries die. And they're they're trying

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

to catch up with the people who have light and a wall there's not so light

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

It is a major theme of the surah. But also holocausts, whoever the Halacha somehow it will or Buffy sits at the Yemen for Mr. Raja Allah. The Quran responds to the Bible's wording and says he created the skies in the earth in six days. What does the Bible say the seventh day he rested? There's no mention of the seventh day Allah says, must Allah Allah, Allah then mentions His Majesty, his control, and his taking over his taking up of the throne. You know, and then that's what is symbolizes Allah's power. So we're the biblical account was kind of alluding to a weakness, right rest, Allah azza wa jal changes the narrative and it becomes about the power of Allah subhanho wa

00:10:37--> 00:11:15

taala. That is never ending, right? And then when you come towards the end, if you look at the Old Testament, the the main prophets after the story of Adam Alayhis Salam is Noah, new Holly Sudan, than Abraham, and then the biblical prophets, all the way the progeny of Abraham, the children of Abraham, and all the prophets that come from that lineage all the way to when you get to the New Testament, which the Christians believe in, then you get to Jesus. Right? So the two main figures in the beginning are no honey Rahim, Allah and Saddam, and then the Stories of the Prophets continuing the Bible until you get to the New Testament, and you get all the way to Jesus. What a social Hadith

00:11:15--> 00:11:55

do at the end? Well look at the new handwear Ibrahim, Allah highlights subhanaw taala. He said, We sent new Hani Rahim and any Jew or Christian listening to this that is familiar, especially their common message didn't know much about the Bible, but the knowledgeable people did, the moment they hear nor Ibrahim in that order. They're like, Wait, that's what we have. That's that's our book. Why is he talking about that? He's pointing directly at what they have. And then he says, Well Jana so we sent both of them, which I'd love for you to reach out to him and the water well kita we sent in their lineage, prophet hood, and the book and which is also really remarkable because prophet hood

00:11:56--> 00:12:36

you know, according to one narration kala Mahela cannabic holla finna be like every time a prophet among the Israelites died. Another took his place at least the beginning lineage we're even familiar with Ibrahim Ali Salam is a prophet has sent his Hawk Ali Salam is a prophet is hawks and Yaqoob Island Salam is a prophet Yakuts and Yusuf alayhi salam is a prophet, so every generation is getting a prophet, right. And Allah even tells us in the in these ayat from you know that that he put in their children prophethood but then he says well Kitab separate from prophethood he said any put in their lineage, the book of Allah and this law is important to understand. This is Allah referring to

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

what Allah gave to Mussolini's

00:12:39--> 00:12:56

because the first time a book is revealed, and Kitab is a reference to a book and also reference to law, Sharia, halal and haram must do this must not do this. Allah gave that for the first time to Musa alayhis salam. And so and after that all the prophets that come among the Israelite prophets, many of them mentioned in the Quran.

00:12:58--> 00:13:36

All of them are reinforcing what was already given to Musa alayhis salam, and the last prophet that came in that line, to teach again to the Israelites, what they had lost from what was given to Musa alayhis salam was him in fact, Jesus, it was a Saturday Surah So Allah says about him you only mahalo kita but well, heck matter what's the Waratah? Well, NGL right. And he Allah didn't just give him in jail. He also taught him the Torah that Allah taught him the Torah so that he could actually debate with their scholarship and correct them. Now, I'm telling all of you this, not just for interesting Christian and Jewish history, but a lesson Muslims need to learn for themselves that

00:13:36--> 00:14:19

Allah is teaching us in his timeless book. So let's get to that. Allah azza wa jal describes that Prophets were sent. Right before this, Bill Burnett, Allah sent prophets with clear proofs with too with clarity, absolute clarity, clear evidences. And I just want you to remember two things about Alba units that will make this discussion easy. One thing I want you to remember about what Allah sent with all these prophets, is that the why should they believe in a prophet? Why should they believe in a God? Why should they believe this is true? All of that became clear through the message of the prophets. So if somebody came in hurt a profit and said, Why should I believe you? Why do you

00:14:20--> 00:14:54

Why should I believe that God speaks to you? Or an angel speaks to you? Why should I believe that there's an afterlife? Why should I believe in your version of God? There's so many other religions out there, I can believe in any of them. Allah says that when he sent a prophet he sent them with Albanian arts means anybody who could come and listen to what they had to say and hear their arguments, it would become completely clear to them that they are speaking the truth. So why should I become a Muslim? The answer was with Albania not the answer to the why. But there was another question Okay, fine, this is the truth. But what does this God expect from me? What does Allah want

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

from me? What should I be doing? What should I not be doing? What you know, what are the requirements?

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

Okay, fine, I'm ready to sign up. But what's the assignment? What? So there's the why. And there's the what? And the what was also made absolutely clear by what the messengers were given the why and the what? Me I would even argue even the house was made absolutely clear. What do you have to do you have to pray? How do you pray? The messengers will teach you? What do you have to believe the messengers will teach you? Why should you believe the messengers will teach you? And that's all inside of the unit. Now, why is that important? Because human beings, we can't commit to something. If we don't know the why.

00:15:37--> 00:16:15

It if you don't know the reason you can't show serious commitment, if a university student says I'm going to college, and you say why, because my parents are making me go, his wife is weak. So he's going to be a weak college student. And other college students goes to the same university and you say, why are you going to this university? Well, I love physics. I love it. I love this subject. I want to learn everything about the subject, here's why a strong, that student may be sitting in the same class, but the level of commitment, dedication, and even output later on is going to be worlds apart, because he's clear on the why you with me. So that's really important that the y should be

00:16:15--> 00:16:45

there. Now. Let's bring that to Islam. Some kids, you know, we don't have to talk about the American Muslim community around the world as I've traveled. I like to just speak with young people, college university students, and just kind of just have a chat with them. Not just the ones that attend my lectures are Islamic there in the Islamic scene, just young kids at a restaurant. You know, guys are playing sports. Let's have a chat with them. So, have you ever thought about why you're Muslim? And the most common answer is, I don't know. Because my parents are Muslim.

00:16:46--> 00:17:27

I don't know. But why is weak? And the why is weak for millions, hundreds of millions of people the wise weak, right? And when the why is weak than the what? Because the what is okay, now, clearly, this is why you're Muslim. Now, this is what Allah wants you to do. Then they're like, I don't even see the point of doing this. I mean, why do I don't understand why I have to pray. I'm a good person. I don't steal from anyone. I'm not lying. I'm not a bad person. So I don't understand why I have to pray to be a good person. The what of Islam becomes questionable, because the why for Islam was never established. See the why is the is the foundation. It's the foundation of a building. If

00:17:27--> 00:18:06

you don't build that, then on top of that everything you build this week. So Allah says in this ayah, Allah God of Santa Rasulillah, will be in at first build the foundation. Well, Angela, Muhammad Kitab, I will miss Zan and then we sent along with them the law, what to do what's right and wrong. That was the second step, the rules and the regulations. But the rules and the regulations sit on top of the existing foundation. This even happened in the spirit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Allah built the foundation of why should people believe in this religion because anybody who believed in the prophets, I show them, their life became miserable. Their family

00:18:06--> 00:18:44

left them, everybody started hating them, people started calling them crazy. They even some of them got killed. At least they had to lose all of their assets. Look, when we talk about the muhajir on the left, they lost their homes, they lost their families, you know, they were kicked out, they can't go back home ever again. They lost all their businesses, property, all of that just because they accepted Islam. So that y must have been really, really strong. Right? But Allah built that why? And then when they get to Medina, they get there. Then Allah starts giving them laws, Al Kitab, he starts giving them regulations, what to do, but one thing was very clear to them, that these laws

00:18:44--> 00:19:25

that Allah has given their purpose is something higher. The purpose of the law is actually justice. Well Anza Namaha Maliki taba will means enemies and means the scale, right, the weighing scale, and obviously, in every culture, that's a symbol for justice, right? So they understood that the purpose of the law is to actually establish justice, but justice for who the common national bulk is, so people could live by Justice, not just themselves, the justice of Islam that came and the prophets that brought brought this religion, they weren't just bringing these regulations and these teachings so Muslims can benefit. In fact, it was so human beings can live justly. It was to the benefit of

00:19:25--> 00:19:59

all think of just that will become too long of a club but just think of a couple of quick examples that are clear in the Quran. When the Quran first came, and ayat of the Quran were being revealed to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, Allah was talking about a baby girl being buried alive and how wrong that is. Because the Arab slob having a baby daughter is embarrassing, so some of them do so who Fedorov right. And on Judgement Day, she is going to be asked, What crime did she commit to deserve being killed? We give them the equivalent, but that child that was born was not born in a Muslim family that was born in a Masonic family. That's that's not a Muslim problem, but someone

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

should have

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

problem. And when Allah says fanatical Love the Doctor, your team, he pushes the orphan Allah criticizes the one who pushes the orphan. He doesn't say you do or your team will Muslim, you pushes the Muslim orphan, any orphan. And when Allah says, you know, wait a little morphine Alladhina is a fellow Allah naseous though foon people, you know, the worst kinds of Hell is designed for people who cheat others in business. When it comes to delivering their service and their product, they give less. And when it comes to being customer, they make sure they get full is this talking about Muslim transactions are all transactions it's all transactions. So the Quran started talking about matters

00:20:39--> 00:21:21

of justice, even before it was talking about matters of law, even before the laws, so the concept was clear to the Muslims, everything Allah gives the point of it, the agenda of Minister established justice, and justice that any human being can understand actually universal justice. Now, one quick thing, because that's this was all my sort of foundational concepts that I wanted to bring to your attention for one larger purpose. I started by talking about Jewish and Christian history, something happened in Jewish and Christian history, which is a major tragedy among the many. And one of the things that happened is that Allah sent these clear evidences, and Allah sent His regulations so

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

that people could have the people we could be very clear about who Allah is, and what does he want, and how they should live. But what happened in those traditions is some groups eventually became owners of the book. They became owners of the book, it became kind of classified information. So the rabbi class and the Philistines in the Old Testament, the Jews, there was a class among them only they had access to the Torah. They all only they had access to their Bible, their book, and know the average Muslims of their time, lie Allah Muna al Kitab, Allah money, most of them don't know anything. They don't know anything except what they think what they wish, meaning they don't have

00:22:00--> 00:22:29

actual knowledge. And they don't, they don't even have access to that actual knowledge. If they want that actual knowledge. They have to go to these licensed people. And they will tell them, this is right, this is wrong. And they can't even fact check anything. Right? So I'll give you a silly example. Imagine you know nothing about cars. And your car is making a little bit of noise, you go to the mechanic, right, and the mechanic is knowledgeable, you're not. So he says, you need an oil change. He says you need a new transmission. In fact, you need to get a new engine.

00:22:30--> 00:23:08

And if he tells you that you're at his mercy, because you don't know anything, you're like, Well, okay, well, how much is that gonna cost me? Well, it's gonna I'm gonna go easy on you. It's only $1,000 for you. You know, so that $10 oil change became $1,000? Because you don't know. Not some of their scholars were very sincere. They were very genuine. They wanted to help people. And some of their scholars wanted to lay out coluna on wilderness. Bilbao said Quran says this. They said they eat people's money using falsehood. They feed people information, they try to keep the knowledge of revelation proprietary, so that people will come to them. Right. That's what happened with them.

00:23:08--> 00:23:43

Then another extreme. So this was an extreme where they were making money off of the people. They were greedy. And their class did this. On the flip side, what happened in Christianity, Allah talks about two things. And that's the idea what happened after a silent Salam. Allah says he put a lot of love and softness in the hearts of the people who follow Jesus first and what Rama Rama means they feel the pain of others, they will see this is someone hurting, they want to make that change. They want to they want to give them some kind of relief. And if you've had interaction with faithful Christians of any denomination, you will notice one thing among them, they have a gentle a lot of

00:23:43--> 00:24:22

gentleness and care about others. And they just want to make sure you're doing okay, there's a compassion in them. Right? And Allah says he put that in the sincere followers of Jesus. But then they invented something new. They created a bit without to start something from a new with no origin. You know, not from from nowhere out of nowhere, they create something. And that's called robinia. Extreme monasticism, and it's a big word Basically, that means Well, Jesus died for our sins and he got beat up and he got He died for that's their belief. Jesus died for our sins. And he was so tortured that how can I live a comfortable life, I should be tortured, too. So I'm not going

00:24:22--> 00:24:58

to get married. And I'm not going to go in the marketplace and I'm not going to go enjoy and I'm not going to, I'm just going to go sit inside the monastery, their their version of the Masjid. I'm just gonna sit there and the horrible world outside is fitna, I have to protect myself because the world is evil, and I'm just gonna stay in some of their more extreme forms even said, Well, Jesus gone, he bled. So how can I be truly faithful to Jesus if I don't believe so they actually developed some of their cults develop practices where they beat each other, but beat themselves until they bleed, with whips with nails on them to beat themselves until they bleed robinia 10 IPSA Ruha they develop this.

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

They invented it

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

Allah says we didn't we didn't tell them to do this mockup na Allah him We didn't tell them to do this. But why is Allah telling the Muslims this? Why is Allah telling the word Rabbi Nia comes from Rob, which means fear. And we actually means extreme fear and extreme skinniness. Like when you starve yourself, two meanings come from it. Right? So, Raja Nia, the mobila form actually means a religion based on extreme fear and extreme deprivation, extreme guilt, and extreme deprivation. Allah tells us these extremes, because the Muslims, much after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam may be in danger of falling into similar traps. I'm not in danger of becoming a Catholic

00:25:45--> 00:26:12

priest. I'm not in danger. I'm not in danger of becoming a rabbi. That's not the danger. But some of their habits. And some of their practices might start showing up within the Muslims, they might start developing a narrative of Islam that's based on extreme fear, and extreme guilt, guilt and fear that Allah did not put in his book, but they invented some Muslims might develop

00:26:13--> 00:26:25

a way of, you know, a cultish ownership of Islam. Here are the few people that know the religion properly, everybody else is going to hell. If you want to know what is right come to these people you don't know they know, come to them.

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

And they might develop that and that might happen within the Muslim faith too. This is why in this surah Allah warns whether your Cuca Latina Otto Kitab in Kabul,

00:26:36--> 00:27:11

they should not become like those who keep what was who the book was given to a long time before them. What's the solution to all of this? The solution to all of this is actually in that ayah that I mentioned to you. Allah said look at the Santa Rosa Donna will buy in at around the Muslim world there are for even in Muslim countries, sometimes there's debates. Should we have Sharia laws implemented in this society? Should we have these who do the implemented? You know, should we cut the hand of the thief? Because Allah says you should first Masahiko Sadiq Khan two factor idea moussaka to handle the thief. So we should have that policy in our government. We're a Muslim

00:27:11--> 00:27:42

country, we should kind of the hand of a thief. But you know, if you take a closer look in some of those countries, the judge who's going to issue the order to cut the hand it's a bribe. The politician who appointed him God to his place by corruption, and the guy who got here made the judge was also given by some family connection. And then the guy that you know, the way he stole from the business that he stole from himself steals and then the police officer there arrested him saw three other people steal but that's their cousin. That's okay. And he caught this guy.

00:27:43--> 00:28:18

That's the reality right? And then we say no, no, we need Sharia Allah. We need law. You know what that is? That's law without justice, isn't it? Allah didn't just say Al Kitab he says Al Kitab ah, well me Zan is allocatable me ZAN. But when you have this obsession with, it should look like we're implementing the hood. Or we're implementing these laws. And if we have these laws, then we're gonna have what Allah wants. Well, Allah wants a lot more than just the laws. There's a lot more than Allah said, we skip a few things and, and then on top of all of that next generation comes, they don't even know it take. This is the scariest thing as the average Muslim youth, even adult. Like I

00:28:18--> 00:28:38

come from Pakistan. My origin is Pakistan, but Buxton is here. No, Pakistan, South Carolina. Hi, Lulu. I go to Pakistan. I spoke to my parents. I spoke to my you know, when my grandparents were live, I spoke to them. I spoke to youth over there. I said, How much Quran Do you like? Do you know anything about the Quran? Do you know anything about SOTL? Anon? No, I'm not a scholar.

00:28:39--> 00:28:44

Okay, what about sorts of Toba? There's a surah Tauba Tauba.

00:28:45--> 00:28:45

Right.

00:28:47--> 00:29:20

They don't know because they feel the book. The book is for scholars. The book is not for them. That's for scholars. If the book becomes inaccessible, if the book becomes inaccessible, then what Allah says earlier on in this surah he says Hola, Mia Nila Lena Amanu and Tasha Kulu boom livecareer Lucha NASA La Mina al Huck. Sure. Isn't it already time for believers, that their hearts should be filled with all with a remembrance of Allah and because of what came down from the truth.

00:29:21--> 00:29:55

Meaning every believer should develop all of Allah by listening to the Quran by understanding the Quran, every believer, every believer, now, if that's not there, than being asked or not there, it's not clear to the Muslims, why they're Muslim. It's not clear why the laws are the way they are. And even the Muslims will say these laws are extreme. This policy is extreme. This is extreme. That's extreme. I don't even know why we have it. There's so much extremism, because they don't know themselves. This is what happened to the Jews and Christians before us. The average population did not have access to the book and we're not given an education to the book. We were given a book that

00:29:55--> 00:30:00

is supposed to be accessible to everyone. And I'm not saying you should become

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

mumble faster on your own, like you read a translation I want to interpret the Quran myself. That's not the point. The point is, as you're learning, you can ask those who know more than you and you can grow your knowledge. But actually everybody's supposed to raise the bar. It's not just some people that No, everybody's supposed to know. And the great tragedy is, we don't we think it's too hard to do. Like learning the Quran is too hard to do. But actually this Quran Allah says, Allah can yes sir Quran, Allah dica. We made this Quran easy for remembrance, because it was supposed to be a revolution in all religions, in all religions. They're supposed to be a pyramid, a hierarchy, the

00:30:37--> 00:31:08

priesthood, the pundit, the, you know, the monk, the rabbi, they know everything, everybody else is blind, and they will dictate, you know, and they will even issue you forgiveness if they want, if they can, you know, in some cases, you give them some money, and they'll get you mark Farah, right. That's that's how it works. And by the way, some of that even exists in the Muslim world. Let's not lie to ourselves, right? But all of that happens, because we cut ourselves off from the word of Allah. We cut our general education, we didn't we didn't do it.

00:31:09--> 00:31:45

And then some of you and it's fair, I know I'm taking over my time. I'll take one more minute. It's fair, you say, oh, you know, I try to read the translation. It's confusing. Subject keeps changing. I tried to read the translation that has more vocabulary than my high school English exam was too hard. Try to read it. I tried to read it. The CD was complicated. I don't I don't know how to where to begin. Okay, fine. Well, that the amaz collective responsibility is to make sure that every Muslim at least has easy access to learn the book of Allah, where do you start, what's the second step you take, what's the third step you take, and an engineer should be able to do this, a taxi

00:31:45--> 00:32:20

driver should be able to do this, a mom should be able to do this, a 10 year old should be able to do this, a retired teacher should be able to do this. It doesn't matter what background you have, how much you know, you don't know, everybody's path towards learning should be made accessible. So they can do this in a manageable part time way. The path should be made accessible, and that becomes a mission for us. Because we're supposed to be the people that have direct access to the book. And because we have it, we have to give that knowledge of that book to everyone else. I'll leave you with one thought from the surah It's remarkable, but as I look on neuron Tamsui, and the last part

00:32:20--> 00:32:45

of this ayah Allah says He will put a light for you if you follow his if you believe in His Messenger, He will give you out he will furnish you a light in which you can walk or with which you can walk, which has many for what judgment day we will have a light we will walk with light represents guidance. Light is also described as Quran. But actually another interpretation that was offered it's really beautiful, is that you will walk among people that don't have any light and they will come towards you.

00:32:46--> 00:33:11

You will you will carry Allah's book. And people will say what is this that you believe? What are these I want to know more about this, you will become a source of light for others. You know Subhanallah that's what the OMA is supposed to be. We're supposed to be empowered with the book of Allah.

I'm going to be here for a very special program tonight. It's called Story night I've done this program all over the world. If you have kids that really want to connect with stories in the Quran, even if you have non Muslim friends, neighbors, co workers that you want to bring to an event where they feel like they can connect with something, the Quran has to say, in an easy, non preachy way, this would be the event to bring them to Inshallah, and that's starting tonight at seven, there are some limited seats left, but you can sign up for it or just show up this evening and show up early, because I think it's gonna get filled up pretty quickly. The second invitation I have for you is

00:41:10--> 00:41:48

something that's starting tomorrow night, I'm teaching a class here on those of you who can read if I want to see it, see a show of hands, how many people can read the Quran in Arabic, but not understand what they're reading? So you can read it, but without understanding, okay, so for those of you that have that, and would like to build a pathway to start learning to read the Quran with understanding, getting to know enough Arabic, so you can actually start directly engaging with the text. I'm doing a 10 day intensive, it's called Dream big. And it's starting tomorrow night. It's I'm going to be here for 10 nights in a row teaching that class and if you think Arabic is hard,

00:41:49--> 00:42:15

you're right, it is but my job is to try to make it easy. So I want to challenge you to at least come tomorrow night. Attend just the first session and see if you got something out of it. See if you felt like something changed in the way you're reading Quran after that one Arabic class, which is tomorrow night at seven. So and then from there, you'll decide whether you want to make a commitment or not in Charlottetown so I'll see but thank you for both of those announcements is Aquila heyland, Salam alikoum.
