Assalamu alaikum.

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

I'm coming for another Quran week. This time

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

it's, Insha'Allah, it's going to be in Detroit

00:00:08 --> 00:00:10

And I'm actually really nervous about this Quran

00:00:10 --> 00:00:13

week because it involves a surah that I've

00:00:13 --> 00:00:16

been involved in studying for about 25 years

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

now. And now I feel more intimidated studying

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

it than ever before, and that's sort of

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

the stuff.

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

One of my biggest takeaways on Quran Week

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

is you really get a deep dive into

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

the why of things.

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

So this was a lifetime experience for me.

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

What an amazing way it's been. So much

00:00:31 --> 00:00:34

to ponder on and reflect on and contemplate.

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

My big inspiration, doctor Asar Ahmed, had studied

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

and taught that Surah since the age of

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

20, and he did multiple dulus on that

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

Surah. And in his own words, he used

00:00:42 --> 00:00:43

to be extremely inspired

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

by the depth,

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

and power of the Surah. It really feels

00:00:47 --> 00:00:49

like the karam of Allah based on how

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

Numa Alaihi Khan starts explaining it, starts breaking

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

it down. And you really understand at a

00:00:53 --> 00:00:55

very deeper level. Because I feel like from

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

independent study, you won't be able to extract

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

that. Myself also have struggled with understanding some

00:01:00 --> 00:01:02

of the Ayat of the Surah and have

00:01:03 --> 00:01:05

just gone around the world talking to multiple

00:01:05 --> 00:01:07

scholars, researchers, colleagues

00:01:07 --> 00:01:09

about some of the implications of the Ayat

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

inside of the Surah. It's been absolutely

00:01:12 --> 00:01:14

mind blowing. Such a great experience. A very

00:01:14 --> 00:01:16

emotional experience as well. Quran week, if you

00:01:16 --> 00:01:18

didn't know, is a format in which I

00:01:18 --> 00:01:19

try to

00:01:19 --> 00:01:21

take deep studies of Quran and try to

00:01:21 --> 00:01:23

present them in as easy language as possible,

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

ayah by ayah, phrase by phrase for an

00:01:25 --> 00:01:27

entire Surah. So even though Surah is a

00:01:27 --> 00:01:28

very short Surah,

00:01:28 --> 00:01:30

I'm actually thinking I don't even know if

00:01:30 --> 00:01:31

a week is going to be enough to

00:01:31 --> 00:01:33

cover it but I hope it is Insha'Allah

00:01:33 --> 00:01:36

Ta'ala. I think Quran week is the right

00:01:36 --> 00:01:38

event to help people. It gives you a

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

profound view, a new perspective.

00:01:41 --> 00:01:43

We have learned so much in such a

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

short space of time. What I'm really looking

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

forward to is your questions and discussions

00:01:47 --> 00:01:48

that ensue afterwards.

00:01:49 --> 00:01:50

So I'm asking you guys to come and

00:01:50 --> 00:01:51

attend,

00:01:51 --> 00:01:54

and experience what Quranic studies looks like and

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

what contemplating the Quran looks like for an

00:01:56 --> 00:01:57

entire week. At the same time, make du'a

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

that I'm able to do some service to

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

the surah that does at least an ounce

00:02:01 --> 00:02:04

of, justice to what Allah has given us

00:02:04 --> 00:02:04

in it.
