abide once again everyone. So when it comes to the hotel avocado, I'm going to try and continue our study of it number 111. This is our third session on the final I have
sudo. So if it's not the last session, we're going to try to get through a couple more phrases in the IRA. So far we've covered like what kind of Picasso see him I brought on the album, that in their account. And in their narrative, there is a profound lesson a moving lesson for those that possess sound mind. So the first session was about the profound lesson and the narrative and last session was about the people of sound minds. And today we get to the next couple of phrases here less as McKenna had Ethan you have data, it is one way of translating that is it is absolutely not, it isn't possible for it to be a kind of speech that could possibly be made up, it is not the kind
of speech that could possibly be made up or it is it isn't made up kind of speech, when I can does the color the beignet. However, it is a confirmation. And also it can mean and it is confirmed by
what is right before it or what came ahead of it. And we'll unpack that in Charlotte when we come to what the philokalia in and again oversimplifying transmitted translation in the beginning as we always do, but the sila condition and an explanation of all things and an explanation of all things well hidden rotten and a guide and and in a loving an act of loving mercy and loving mercy
or loving care rather LIFO menu me known for a people that seek faith for people that want to believe or are trying to hold on to faith. So there's a few things here and we're gonna start with makrana, Hades and utara it is not speech that could possibly be made up. Let's start with the most simple kind of usually I get to the conclusion at the end. I'm going to start with the conclusion today. This phrase, you know, uses the word Hadith. And the word Hadith is used in the Quran to describe the Quran in other places whether any woman you can see will be hardened Hadith sinister dijamin hateful Allah would leave me and the one who calls this hadith Li now Hadith where you know
the average Muslim when they hear the word Hadith, they think of Quran and Hadith like the speech of the Prophet size on right. But in classical Arabic, and Hadith actually mean speech. Right? So the Arabs have a few words for speech. kalaam is one of them. Hadith is one of them. And the word Hadith actually has to do with new speech. It comes from the word hidef, which actually means a new event, or something new that's taking place, right. So even, you know, this is a new event that's taking place and event that has happened. In fact, in Modern Standard Arabic, you know, LBL first Hamas era, they use the word Hadith for modern. So you know, I saw that Hadith or modern age, or
contemporary age, right, but the word Hadeeth actually has to do with new speech or speech that wasn't heard before will be called a hadith. Generally, yes, that's kind of the implicit meaning generally, it's one of the words in Arabic for speech. Now, this was important to say because
you know, there are places in the Quran where Allah will use the word speech, let's think about the English word for now speech, and he's referring to his own speech, meaning the revelation and then that word speech becomes sacred. But if that same word is being used to describe somebody else's speech, then that word, that same word speech is no longer sacred. Right? Now here in this ayah, you can look at it in two ways you can look at it as this is not the kind of speech that could possibly have been made up.
If you if I translate it that way, then I'm referring to the word Hadith as something sacred. I'm saying this isn't the kind of look at this hadith. Look at this sacred word, this profound word and realize as you contemplated that it couldn't possibly have been made up. And if I translate it that way, then I'm looking at the word Hadith here as a sacred term as a reference to the Quran itself. But there is yet another way of looking at it. And I'm, I wanted to give you this caution that I saw when I found this rather more convincing. How do you find utilizamos Lucifer, a complex muscle safe for those of you that are just starting out on your journey of Muslims.
is actually maybe think you can think of it as one conceptual idea. And that is, this isn't some kind of talk that you just make up.
So now it's not a comment about the Quran. It's a comment about kind of the kinds of things people just make up off the cuff.
Just come up with something. Hey, tell me tell me the story. Okay, once upon a time, there was a there was a man his son
told him a dream and yeah, that took him his other brothers who just you making it up as you go, kind of thing. This is not that this is not some made up kind of improvise speech. You know how you have nowadays you have improvised people that can make improvised rap songs or whatever, right? It could spit out rhymes on the cuff. Just give me start me off, give me a subject. And I'll just do it. I'll make it up. Right. That's that's literally an example of how do you start up speech that is made up as you go creative speech, new speech that wasn't there before. So we're so this is the kind of the basic sense of licensing, what do you think this is just talk that just was a story that's
just told for the sake of telling a story. This isn't that kind of talk. These aren't that kind of stories, because stories were associated with entertainment.
And stories were associated with things that were made up to, to glorify a nation. Because you want to tell the story of a legend of your tribe who killed 100 warriors, with you know, without lifting his sword. And, you know, the, by the time they saw the shine of his sword, they all fell on the battlefield, etc. You're like, Oh, that's, that's our guy. Wanna, you want to dramatize and exaggerate the superpowers of your ancestors, that's Hadeeth anusara. And artists talking about history now, but it's not using those embellishments, and that exaggeration, it's not dramatizing something it's telling things exactly as they were. It this cannot be compared to the creative
storytelling process that you are accustomed to, in other, you know, in your other story hearing experience, right. It's also kind of a, I really can only be put that way, it's kind of like a subtle dig at what they did with the original story. In the Jewish and Christian tradition.
You put a lot of stuff in that's just totally made up.
You just added accusations against use of Elisa and you said things about his father, you said things about, you know, you made you you sided more with his brothers than you did with him. And the way you told the story,
and that's just all made up. And this isn't it. This isn't the kind of speech that's made up. So it's kind of like a side saying, Look at this, right now. This deserves some, you know, some deeper look beyond the word Hadeeth it's really the word you've thought about that I wanted to kind of spend some time on it's the passive
melodic mobility module. And for students that are you know, moving a little bit further along into Arabic studies. When you have a Nikita ism Hadith and and then you have an adjective you've done
a MOBA there. So a Nikita and a melodic together actually become a kind of muscle sofa. So this is fairly melodic. Let's actually feed mahali nosode.
So it's actually it's, it's, it's serving as an adjective. Now what what what's the purpose of making a verb an adjective to a noun to an to an indefinite noun. What that does is, it actually doesn't just mean because if this was an alien, you said had Ethan moved on. And easy transition would be made up speech. It would be simple translation made up speech. So the word made up would be an adjective of the word speech. But because it's your thought is the feeling modality, it actually takes away from the substantial nature of the firm nature of a noun. rhetorically speaking verbs are transient in nature, they are temporary and wobbly in nature. And nouns are permanent and fixed in
nature, in the nature of language. So what that does, simply speaking, now let's come back to human language, I'm going to stop geeking out now. What do you think you have thought, I mean, it's not the kind of speech that could possibly be made up.
That could be that an attempt to make it up could even happen. So the word you've thought I actually reduces is not made up, you couldn't even begin to make it up. You couldn't even engage in the act of making it up. The act of making it up couldn't even happen. So it actually it it rejects. And it refutes the notion of the Quran being an act of creative speech from a human being in the strongest possible terms by just using the word you've thought I hear. So that it's a really beautiful kind of nuance in grammar, that we have to develop inshallah, over time, whether it takes a year, two years, whatever it takes, but you know, this, this revelation has been with us for a millennium and a half,
and we have to be better at appreciating it. All collectively, collectively, for whatever reason. We have that
We didn't get to spend time with it, that we didn't get to learn it the way we should have you and I didn't. We weren't we weren't raised with a good education in our Koran we just weren't. That's just the reality, right? But now it's time that we, instead of whining about that reality, do something about it, and do something about it that can help future generations take a step closer than we did. We go as far as we can, and then inshallah we have them take further steps. But one thing is, we have to stop being complacent about where we are with our Koran as an oma, like we can't, we can't say, well, the translations already done. So we should, we're good. The problem is that
translations, even the translation that so when I work on like that the fieldwork is easier, the translation work is harder.
It takes an hour or two just to knock out a phrase or an idea of what I'm just to think about how we can translate that in English. And even then there's so much missing, because the Arabic captured so much, and we're trying to stuff that into the English and it's just a very difficult process, right? But what you know, what's easier than that is to actually have the translation, but also encourage everybody to raise their own bar a little bit. We can we can pull it off. Human beings are capable of learning programming languages that aren't even human.
People know, like, coding languages, you know, they can read code. We learn that kind of like you guys learn the language of, you know, video games, you learn an entire world of vocabulary. When you're talking to your friends about your ranking in fortnight.
And you're speaking in English and your parents are at the dinner table. You might as well be speaking a foreign language because your parents have no idea what you just said.
What weapons you talked about what upgrades you talked about what, you know, the terminology, it's an entire world of terminology that you were eager to learn and you learn it. And actually, the amount of vocabulary that is required to pick up expertise in video games nowadays, it's almost the equivalent of a college course.
you're capable. Everybody's capable. Nobody's not capable. That's just what we lie we tell ourselves. Right. So it is honestly it is. It's something we make up for. It's hard even ourselves. Right, so so that's a tangent I'm going off on but anyway McClanahan, Ethan eufaula. It is not the kind of it is not some made up speech that could possibly have even been made up. Let's look at the word you've thought a little deeper. This is the etymology of again, we go to our famous favorite dictionary. But actually this time I'm looking at this from our shoes commentary on fdlr from a different idea. He talked about this in earlier in Milan 94. This is an excerpt from what he talked
about because the word came up there earlier. lifted o el Khatib he starts by saying the word if there are is is a word for lying, well whom will it fully still Ah, now watch this. And it is a synonym of if the lock the lock means to come up with something creative. Create you know the to create something new. Hello, can you all know last name is Harlan the Creator, if the lock actually means to create something new? Well, if there are hidden meanings
for you, and if there are comes originally from fara, and yeah, for the original word, well, who are the kita and Lisa, Hubby, Missoula and you have the null or useless and not terrible. And originally, the word Fuddy actually meant when you take the skin of an animal and you cut parts of it out, to make sandals with it, or to make a water pouch with it, or to you know, make those kinds of things like to use the leather and to treat the leather from the skin and you cut a piece of it out to make some material in the old days. That's actually called that cutting of the skin out and making something new out of it altogether. That's actually called free so what is it It used to be
skin but now it's a purse. It used to be skin but now it's a sandal. You get it? So it went from being a part of an animal to being a shoe or something like that. Well you call with Tara if Dr lone min fine and the word if Tara with a tie in it is from the external family if the family is actually
the Holy Father tillbaka have been funny. It's actually probably when you put things in that family when you take from Java Farah, and you put it in if Dada when you put it in the you know in the hyperbolized form, it is actually hyperbolized meaning to put extremeness to the act. Now what does that mean in Simple English? You call if telegin Duck Duck Daffy Duck de Katara who took theif said
this is pretty epic. So for he cut the skin of the animal and he made whatever if Tara, same word but he's here an extra time there. What that does is he went too far and cutting it or he cut it too harshly he messed it up. So an aggressive cutting or cutting so badly that you messed up the job or you went overboard and cutting and you ruined it. That can also be called if Tara
So from Florida, you get the more extreme act
for a blockquote body and Shea in Vienna who wakawaka. And it's it started getting used when people talk about something that happened and it didn't actually happen. So there's a jump here, and let's talk about that jump, basically, the word started getting used for when
you have taken something that used to be something one matter. And you took it out of there took it out of its original context, and you morphed it, you treat it, like skin is treated when it turns into leather, you morphed it, you applied some treatment to it, and you turn it into a different story altogether.
So it was something else. And you've cut it from its original, and you made it something a new thing altogether.
And when you do that, with speech, when you make up something that it wasn't to begin with, you make it up, you come up with something creative altogether, a new product, then when someone makes something up creatively, and their inspiration could be anything, right? You know how they say, I was watching the documentary, and it inspired me to write this novel, or why I was, you know, the painter says, I was looking at a tree, and it inspired me to make a, you know, make a painting about the city. It was like, What does a tree have to do with the city? There's a connection in there somewhere in his head that I don't understand. You understand? So sometimes people take one thing
and turn it into something else entirely, right? So that idea of making up something completely creative that has no connection to what the original was his if there are endless in Arabic usage over and over again. It started getting used in the meaning of lying, like you just made that up that has no connection to what the reality was, you're just totally different thing. What can I add to national cotton? It's as if the origin of it is alluding to line without me and kind of misdirection of speech, which are delicata Satomura differently. And that became popularized until it just became one of the words for lying. When Avital who it Luckily, Smith de la Kalinka dibben.
Similarly, the word creativity esta la, so he was creative, or he made something creative creatively started getting used in Arabic for lying also.
Like, you know, I made something up, it can be used for speech. Right? Or I came up with something that's it's made up speech, I came up with it. But you can come up with an idea. You can come up with an invention. You can create something new, but in the act of speech, it's associated with lying in Arabic culture.
What hasn't kept Edo Tokido Lilith de la Takara Navarro has a little Daffy, I think. So that's why in the Quran, when you see after una de la Hill kariba
one woman other than woman minister, Allah La Hill, katiba or Katy ban, you have both kind of
variations in different places in the Quran. Allah says they made up a lie. So he says they make up a lie. So when you when you any first thing that the word made up already means lie that you don't have to add the word lie.
Now in English, let's think about this in English. If I say, Man, you made that up. You made up. That's all made up. Am I am I not saying that's fake? And that's a lie. Right? But if I said you made up a lie,
I didn't have to add up, add the word lie. You could just say you made that up. And it would have been communicated enough. But when I added the word you made up a lie.
Then you couldn't even if I didn't say a lie, it was already understood. So why did I say it? I said it because I'm really mad at you. And I want you to understand what a serious lie you made up. So I added more wording to my expression of my disdain and I discussed with you about lying then I added the word al Qaeda, Al Qaeda is actually a mob rule. That's why fontawesome al Qaeda, boo Alma Freudian mutlak, mocha, mocha, deliberately, it's actually emphasizing word only use it sometimes in the Quran. That's not using this IRA. That's not using this higher. Now. Mark on ahaadeeth. Tara, is remarkable because Allah is saying this isn't kinda makes it impossible kindness, Franconia. So it's
not the past tense. It was, it is impossible for this to be the kind of speech that one would just throw out there and just come up with it. This is, and he makes this claim not in the beginning.
He makes this claim at the end of the day, that's really important.
Why is this important at the end of the salon?
Because before you sell someone a product, and you say, this is the most amazing product ever, let me tell you this, it's gonna change your life.
You're trying to sell someone something they haven't even experienced it yet, right? You're convincing them how awesome it is. The brochure looks good. The ad looks good. The video look good. The product itself may not be
but it's another thing to have someone experienced something
and then say it's impossible for this to be made up, isn't it?
You couldn't possibly make that up, could you? You see what that does. There's a stamp of freedom.
inability, because now they've heard the story. They've heard the entire account. And now like, it's to say with authority to his to the deniers and how do we know they're deniers in place. Ma ism is an it's a hyperbolized form of refutation. Ghana is an additional wording here. And you've thought I would argue is actually even furthering the negation because it's a melodic
because in refutation, it works in backwards. For affirmation, a noun would be more of a stronger usage. But for negation, the verb would be a stronger because it's even remotely not possible. So what I'm saying is when you have these, these levels of negation or strength in the statement, what that does is it's saying, You people who think this is all made up, do you now see how this couldn't possibly be made up?
Now, let's take a pause before we go any further. This entire story for the kurush is also new. Because the police don't know users, they don't know his brothers. They don't know your code.
They don't know Egypt like that.
They have no knowledge of the ancestry of his Hawk at all. All this stuff is makin Koran. And these are people need to clear common nouns about whom for whom you came to warn people so that you could warn people whose ancestors even haven't been warned, they're unaware. They don't know the names of all the prophets. They don't know Israelite history, they don't know any of this stuff. They're the Quraysh. They're unaware people. The last prophet they had among them in that proximity was this Marine,
and the neighboring prophets, the ruins of sila handshape. Right? And who are they? So those are the proximity areas where they see the ruins, but really, in their immediate experience, it's a smiley, blind way back.
And they've had a Fatah, we've got a long gap of like nothing in this region, as far as profits, and someone else telling them all of this, these are all new names for them. Right? They literally are new names for them. And when they are new names for them, they can see, that's pretty, they would think this is made up. But even as they heard it, they can hear the quality and the depth and the richness, and the precise the precision with which the story is being told. And they know when something is made up and when something is not. There intelligentsia knows, and the claim is being made even to them but implicitly, because this is happening later on. This is when the year of
sadness, right? We'll get to the seal events inshallah, eventually, but now we are, you know, kind of by osmosis being exposed to the Jewish community, they're starting to hear that there's a man claiming to be a carrier, a final revelation, the confirmer of what was given to Moses, like, What was this? Well, he's a loser. Yeah, he talked a lot about Musa What else?
You know, he doesn't know about you. Yeah, he does.
He's been given a whole story story of yourself.
And when they hear this, does it conflict with what they have? Yeah, it does. And when, when when you have something, and then you hear something new, that conflicts with what you have, your first impulse is, whatever new thing came up, it can be dismissed. This has made up what I have is the original, it has to match what I have for it to be right.
And ally, at the end of telling the story with authority even speaks to them and says, This couldn't possibly be a thing where we're making up the act of making up could be involved. However, without seeing it, he said it
would you claim to have as the original
seemed to have seemed to have seems to have quite a bit of that process.
You know, you've you've cut it out from the original, you've cut that skin out and turned it into something else. And you've done it aggressively. You know how, when you cut it out, you mess up? It's one thing to cut it out and make something nice, right? But when you cut out the skinny you do, you don't do fara you do if Tara, you guys messed up and how you mutilated this story. You turn it into something ugly, and it's being reduced to its beautiful form.
You you turn it you tried to tarnish the character of my beloved use of my beloved yaku and I'm going to restore their dignity back oh bring them back to how they were supposed to be thought about so it's actually a pretty aggressive direct confrontational conclusion and where's this coming? Look at God de casa see him he brought only Bob in their account and all of their account there is a profound lesson for people of sound minds and if you are as you could be of sound mind from the Jewish community you could be a sound mind from the Christian community you could be of sound mind from the Qureshi has been a fun pagan worshipping families you can be of sound mind who've never
heard any of this before. But as you hear this, and you start seeing the profound lessons in every single ayah and the more you contemplate the more it opens up doors
The more you ask the more it answers, you realize this isn't made up speech, other speech, don't don't do this, you can't stop it. somebody gives a speech, you can't stop at every line that they say, and draw lessons for your life.
And profound wisdom and dropping off oozing, dripping out of every word.
And then you wondering, maybe I probably miss still missed a bunch of things.
I was talking to him today about studying the surah. He said, You know, I realized something I was forgetting because we're both kind of sad, we're reaching the end of this.
He said, You know, if we started over, we'd probably find things we didn't find the first go round. Because as we started studying the solar things opened up to us by Isaiah 30, that didn't open up to us when we were number one.
And now that those things opened up to us, our view has changed you, you see more things in front of your landscape that you didn't see before. Now, with that enhanced view, when you go back, you now see things that you overlooked the first time around, let me give you a terrible example. You've seen you've seen a movie or a cartoon or something, when you were younger, and you thought you understood it, then you go back and watch your
way that was all in there. Man, I had no idea. Right? Because as you evolve your view of the same thing you thought you knew evolves. So actually, Quran does that the more we study Quran, the more the study of the Quran gets renewed. We're not I'm you and I will never be done with sort of use of actually, that's the good news. We're gonna go back with what we know, a level open other doors. And then we'll go back again and a level open yet other doors and the more doors he opens, I said this to him. Let's because I wanted to think about this, not just from how Ally's talking to the corporation talking to the Jews and Christians of Medina, not all but how is he talking to you and
me, US engaged in the process of contemplating Allah's word, US engaged in the exercise of trying to find it in every ayah you know, what keeps getting reinforced over and over again? How is this made up speech?
How is this like any other speech?
It's impossible. Like that conclusion just reinforces on your heart. I already know, you already know what's the word of Allah? But man, does it feel good to just feel like, yeah, there's definitely the word of Allah. Oh, yeah, that's the word of a lie. It's like Ibrahim Ali said, I'm saying how do you give life to the dead? And Allah says, oh, god believe? Yeah, well, my heart feels satisfied when you show me right that the heart gets a reinforcement. It just dawns on you over and over again. You know, and that's actually been our, you know, for me as a as a two decade now almost student of Quran. And you know, sohaib doing his studies, and many of you doing your studies, the
more you study it, the more it dawns on you.
This is this is heavenly, this is divine. This is not made up speech. Yeah, why and yet at the same time, yet it the same exact time as we are deepening in our jaw of Allah's word, and the result, the depth with which it's rooting in our hearts, that this is truly from Allah. At the same time, there are very, you know, intelligent intellectuals that are doing PhD level postdoctoral level studies and research in universe top universities around the world. And their thesis has to do with how the Quran is made up.
there they're doing that that's that's happening right now. How did what what sociological and anthropological forces, what political forces, what psychological forces were at play, for the Qur'an to have emerged? Not revealed, emerged, you know, something emerges from the ground.
And revolution comes from above.
Their notion is that emerged, right, it creatively came up. There was a void that needed to be filled, and, you know, the empty landscape of Arabia of a religious worldview, and this was a unifying worldview. And they'll have their own theories about how the Quran came about, of course, to them, it's manmade. Right? So to them, it is, in fact, some pretty amazing Hadeeth. And you thought, all right, and they'll spend dedic, they'll spend years dedicated to reinforcing that conclusion. You know, the problem is, once you already have a conclusion, and then you study and steady and steady, you will only reinforce that conclusion.
We started with what one Allah says, Call to Allah with open insight, with a clean heart with no bias, explore the word of a lie and conclude whether or not this is God's Word or not for yourself.
Once you arrive at that, you don't have to start by saying this is God's word. You have to start by giving it a chance to see is it God's Word? That's the invitation from Allah to humanity, isn't it?
phobia? Yeah. diefenbach
Do you know what speech after this? Are you going to believe in? Look at it. Come explore it, how to bring your evidences, contemplate, hear what I have to say first me Oh, but once you come to that conclusion, then the more you study, that conclusion will only get reinforced, will only get strengthened when someone doesn't. before they even open this book, they've already assumed there's no such thing as revelation.
There's no such thing as a God come on superstition. There's no such thing as prophets, angels. I don't believe in that stuff. So this is a historical Arab phenomenon, a sociological, political, you know, phenomenon that I will study and I'll study its origins. But you've already cut out one possibility, what's the possibility that this could be from God, this is this could be revelate. That's not possible. other possibilities are on the table, the one that the one that believers have is not on the table. Now all of your study all of your, all of your,
you know, research, all of your thesis all of your composition is based on that one bias that this cannot be from Allah. What does Allah say about contemplating the Quran?
I'm so moved. By the way Allah speaks man, the way he talks about contemplation he says two things. He says if Allah tala barudan Quran,
will Okada mean en de la Hilah jufeel Tila Tequila don't even come to contemplate the Quran. Had it been from someone other than Allah, it would have had a lot of internal conflict in it.
Okay, what does that tell you? many things, but one thing it tells you is someone genuinely contemplating the course or giving it a chance will come to the conclusion that it cannot be from anyone other than Allah. That's a lovely invitation. If you openly contemplate this Quran, you will I will bring you to that conclusion.
But you have to come with an open heart. Right? What's the other idea about contemplating the Quran?
of Allah in the Quran? Quran below any says Amala? coluna?
Don't they contemplate that on the Quran? Or do they heart their hearts have have their own locks on them, their own locks on them? In other words, their hearts already have a lock on it. This can't be God's word, this can't be a less word. Now they can contemplate all they want. They're only contemplating How can I prove it's a lie? You understand? Because the hearts already have a lock on them. So you're no longer looking at who's the author behind the speech? You're only looking for false answers for it. And you can publish your your findings and your theories and your thesis. There's lots of papers done by non Muslims on sotius have lots of them. How did he borrow from the
Bible? How did he do this? How did he do? Like, there's lots of papers on this stuff. It's fun reading cuz
my God, Ethan, you've taught these words are, like, echoing, still echoing around the world for any who truly contemplate and are still responding to the most advanced Western academic who's trying to say and on, you know, disbelieving academics trying to say this has made up speech, and it's still telling him mark on ahaadeeth anusara.
the first part will Bob. That's actually because it's all one IR right? It kind of set up the prerequisites for who will realize it's not made up speech.
It can't possibly be made up speech when you approach it as people have sound minds and sound hearts.
Because the lessons to be drawn from these stories. And from this account is all of that's there for who Llywelyn and Bob. And when you are on your way to becoming Bob, then the conclusion this can't possibly be made up speech. So it's pretty amazing that those things were all put in one IRA. This is not a separate either in a separate IRA, because they are now kind of luxury minimalism. They're connected to each other. Okay, so it's not made up speech and it couldn't possibly have been made up fine. When I can leave the beta d auto sila coalition. However,
it is a convent confirmation of what is ahead of it.
When the Prophet sociala moves to Medina, he's exposed to the Jewish community.
The Jewish community starts hearing that he's talking about an environment Muslim Quran two thirds of krons already been revealed. And in that cron, there's lots of Moza.
There's lots of Ibrahim. There's lots of his hawks, Zachary Maria. There is the Israelite prophets. In mccunn Quran we're not even talking about Medina Colonia. Right? Israelite history is more detailed in Medina Quran like SoTL Baqarah, for example.
But the accounts of the Israelite prophets are pretty well established in Khurana
Quite a bit, actually, in fact, even some Jewish history like so Tulisa in the beginning.
So what does the law say to them?
Well, I mean, it will be my Ansel tomasa De Palma mahakam. When he gets to Medina, he talks to the Israelites directly you know how he feels Yeah, you know the nominal. Those of you believe in Bukhara. He says, No, let me talk to the let me talk to the Israelites. directly.
Yama de soleil
was guru near modality and sons of Israel. make mention of the fever I showered on you?
Well, I need for both to commander I live in and I'm the one make mention of the fact that I was the one that gave you preference over all other nations.
What army Nuba Mountains have to end now come to believe in what I have sent down.
Go on. Musa de Colima mercans confirming that as a confirmation of what you have,
that is that is highlighting the truth that is embedded, hidden away in what you have. It's not contradicting what you have. It is pulling out the truth from it.
Believe in it, this is your final chance. Without akuna Allah Catherine V and don't be the first to deny it.
That came in Medina that Soto bacala.
But by the time that came, the Israelites have already heard sort of yourself.
They've already heard their father being talked about
their father Jaco being talked about. They already heard the brothers of use of being talked about, they were already heard use of and Binyamin being talked about. So this has already come.
And that's important to them, because that's their fundamental identity. The 12 tribes are the sons of Israel, the sons of Israel, the sons of Yahoo.
And so here he says, it is a confirmation of what came ahead of it.
What does the Well again, it's not made up speech, however, let me tell you what it is. Okay, this is what it's not. Now, let me tell you what it is. It is a confirmation of what came ahead of it. Now what came ahead of it. What came ahead of it is the previous revelation.
But he could have said, Well, I can just leave Katara t villingili. It's the confirmation of the Latin and G but he didn't say that. He said what is the head of it, which means that includes thought and energy. But it's not limited to total energy. It is a confirmation of the events that happened ahead of it too. It is the truth bringing out the truth of what really happened with use of what really happened without hope. It's bringing out the truth of the legacy of all the prophets. What is the head of it?
So it's, and then the word does deep which is a mustard. Those of you that are studying a little bit of Arabic with me sadaqa USA Dakotas de la masa de Pon. So the Dakotas, the confer vamos a Dakota lumen who Sadek when the un houda. To Sadek was a human who said upon this, the Anima family or the Fila family. Now, from a grammatical point of view, that sort of point of view, from a grammatical point of view, this is a master. And the master can come be my human being a full misspelled file, or be my full misnomer. For now, let me tell you what that means. I call it a confirmation. Because the quality by the confirmation of what came ahead of it, it could come in the meaning of massage,
meaning it is confirmed actively confirming what is ahead of it. So every time Allah speaks, he's confirming and highlighting the truth of what was given before.
But it can also mean was a duck, it can actually the mustard can come in the meaning of SMF rule in Arabic. What that does, Mossad duck means it is being confirmed by what is ahead of it.
So there's a two way street. Allah is saying, This revelation, this story and stories of the prophets are pulling out the lid, the truths of all the stories of the past that have been lost. Or even if there's lies, lies, lies and a glimpse of truth and lies, lies lies in a glimpse of truth is taking those truths and highlighting them fully. and removing the line components from them. That's what it's doing when it's a massage deck.
But it's also a massage duck, meaning people who truly study previous scripture will find that this is being confirmed.
That actually when they truly deeply contemplate even what they have, they can escape that the Quran is being confirmed by what they read in their own word.
It's already there.
It's calling them to the Quran. This was a duck also.
So he says, Well, I can see the color the baina D, the confirmation. However, this is what it is of what came ahead of it.
It's all so now that's one roll of the Quran to actually pull the truth out from history.
But that's about history.
But we don't just live in history, we live in the present.
He says, What of sila cliche. I translated this as an explanation of all things. The Quran is an explanation of all things. And I titled today's lecture, all things explained. First problem with that is the Quran doesn't explain nuclear physics.
It doesn't explain microbiology.
It doesn't explain, you know,
you know, psychological disorders. It doesn't talk about, you know, Medicare, it doesn't talk about architecture.
It doesn't talk about geology. It can make a reference to geology, but it's not a geology textbook. It's definitely not talking about algebra. alhumdulillah, or geometry? It's not talking about so many things that are when you say, it explains everything. Somebody said, No, it doesn't. It never explained cockroaches
never explained, you know, the atmosphere.
So what does it mean? It explains everything.
Let's first explore that a little bit.
Before I talk about the word explain, because I'm going to dive deep into the word explain what one word were did allow us to describe the Quran as an explanation, the field, it's to be as like the most mind blowing word to think about the Quran.
You see, if you ask me a bunch of questions,
I have these these these questions. And I took my time to explain those answers to you. And at the end of it all, I say, hey, did I explain everything?
Yes, you did?
Did I? Did I say Did I explain everything?
And you said, Yes, you did. Because when I said Did I explain everything? Did I mean? Did I explain everything in the cosmos?
Or did I mean, did I explain everything that you were asking about?
Wasn't it relevant to you?
Wasn't irrelevant to you.
Go to the beginning of the surah.
Yusuf and his brothers have IOD, for who? For those who asked questions. And those who asked a question, seek an explanation.
At the end of the surah he's saying it has an explanation for everything. Meaning everything you asked for
every issue you have in life, every concern you have every police you needed guidance.
Every time you were stuck and didn't know what the right thing to do was. Every time you couldn't find hope. Every time you didn't know how to cope with your fear, how to deal with your hopelessness. Every time you were hurt by somebody and didn't know if there's a lot of people who are hurt by others. Yeah, look at Yahoo News hurt by sons.
How do you deal with betrayal? How do you deal with slander? How do you deal with how do you deal with what people do terrible things to you? Is the kid I have questions about what do you want me to feel? Yeah. How do I find my strength? Oh, you have questions? Do you have explained everything?
It is a confirmation of what came before?
And it's an answer to all your questions about your struggles. Your struggle, not your curiosities.
Not your inquiries into Astro. You know, astronomy.
Not about you know, aerodynamics.
Not about that. When you came to this revelation for questions about you,
about what's going on the world inside you, your moral compass, your spiritual compass, your struggles, your trials, your ups and downs, you came with questions about that.
You have questions about how do I deal with these situations? How do I deal with this situation in this situation? This How do I deal with this kind of person and this kind of person and this kind of person? How do I deal with matters when they're out of my control? What do I do? What do I do if I feel like I'm imprisoned?
I feel like I've just been put into a cage that can't find a way out. What do I do?
What do I feel like? Nobody's hearing me? How do I feel? What should I do what I feel like I'm just I'm a nobody, like a slave.
Like I'm a nobody. I have no value.
Everybody's doing better than I am. What do I What do I do if I feel like I'm abandoned?
is what of sila Konishi.
An explanation of all things. So I'm going to save about this again today. And I said, Man, we knew we're gonna get into a lot of stuff when we study sort of yourself. But neither you nor I, as we were exploring it realized that Allah is going to comment on and give drop wisdom on so many different things that we never expected.
It really like when I'm reading with the sila coalition like Yep,
there is an explanation of all
kinds of things. All kinds of things. Poorly shaped by the way is used in language generally look around to, like Alice has to Queen somebody gave her minko leash a
he gave her all kinds of things, all things actually means all kinds of things.
collusion in, you know, philosophy MAMAMOO been everything we've explained
everything relevant to you, we've explained everything for guidance, we've explained that a lie explain what the wife of the ministers name was.
There's a lot explain how many bedrooms they had. That'll explain how many latches were on the door lock.
He didn't explain that stuff. So I was just saying you explained everything. Now he had explained everything that you needed, that you asked about. Because you have asks you have needs. And he's there to answer your need of guidance, your need of help, your need for relief. And so this is such a beautiful expression, because to me, what it does is it highlights the two dimensions of the Quran, there is the intellectual affirmation and confirmation that this is in fact revelation that is confirming what came in previous scripture. So the knowledgeable will find that information in it.
But even if you didn't come from the world of previous scripture,
even if you had no knowledge what the law said in Glr and this part that says it confirms what came before is not relevant to you. Because for a Qureshi, it's not relevant to them that it confirms that thought in the GA because even though the other engine is not relevant to them, right.
But even for them, does it explain everything they'll experience in their life? Will they find guidance and counsel and love and care and mercy from Allah? For every matter that they go through in life yellow silica
so beautiful. It just it brings the neurons are our faith in the Quran into a different realm. Now the Quran is the answer to my questions every day.
Now, the Koran is my answer key to life.
I will open this book Not Just to study the fear, not just to learn grammar, not just to perfect my dead read. I'm going to open this book because it's going to answer my questions. It's going to help me with my needs. I start by saying Yeah, kind of studying. We seek your help. And it's going to help me
it's going to help me by guiding me as heavy stuff. Let's look at the word explanation.
What is let's explain the word explanation.
I see comes from the word fosmon. And Mufson. Good lumen Taka Khomeini Mina just said it's gonna take me a while to explain, refresh your brain juice and stay with me.
A mufe sale is the part where two bones of the body the joint where the there's a slight gap in the X ray, that gap between the two bones is actually called a Mufson. Okay.
What of Ceylon jaw rules are just your there are the two who when they take the camel that they've slaughtered and they chop it up and they separate the you know the chest meat and the leg meat and when they when they cut it up and separate separate separate that's called the Ceylon juice or juice sorry. Well, fast Sita and hora de la de Topsy lubaina Lulu attain our rahima for nirvan.
A fazila same origin is when they have a necklace and they've got pearls but they want to put beads in between the pearls like they've got a pearl 123 beads pearl 123 beads pearl right when they do that pattern. Those get those filler beads are called a fastener. They're called the fasciola.
Manual McQuarrie, the main user she and the lady Hema autonomy, Omar who I mean Bobby ketema ewz coolamon Adrienne Mufson. Baku, Lima Alba in the zoo, with four feet of solid Hello collars out with VTC lucara. By the low attain
womanhood of SEIU shape W. So it is actually two separate and distinguish two things from each other,
that used to be together that are from the same material like pearls are the same, but they'll be separated by something. The meat is the same but it's being separated by categories. The bones are this is bone, this is one but it's slightly being separated.
So what I'm gathering from that so far,
is that one of the core meanings of the origin of this word has to do with separation. But it's separating things that are of that are still connected in some way. So they're separated yet joined. You see, because the beads the pearls in a necklace still need to be in the necklace, but they also need to be separated the two bones
My arms need to be separated, but they also need to be joined at some level. Right? So separated, yet connected, is kind of this idea of fussen. And if they were fully connected, it wouldn't be functional, and it will be fully separated, it wouldn't be functional, you understand. So, it's between those two between separation and, and, and, and union.
This is why in the seed of another place in the Quran, Allah who Allah, some scholars say La yaku, Martin Manor, a minha. And a Masonic one of the one of the concepts behind the seal of the law says is don't have seal of the Quran isn't the seal of the Quran, what that means is no ayah. So every is separate, but no meaning of an ayah is completely separated from what came before it's consistent with it, and it connects with it. And it connects we even by sometimes the separation helps in the connection.
Right. So just like you know, in engineering or in architecture, sometimes when you put two materials together, or you put two parts of a car together, you need to have a safe distance between them, they need to work with each other, but they can only work function properly together, if they have the right amount of distance with each other, you understand. So that's kind of this this complex notion of See, then they go further just in the way it was used. multimethod and wahida ocra are what they had. So they are distinct from one another one another, but they come one after each other. Okay.
Now listen to this facility to Villa de photomath to foster Kalani.
A woman does fossil of her baby
when she wins the baby off of feeding from her.
So there was a separate the union between child was inseparable from the mom because it had to feed. But eventually it was what separated. But you know, those years of weaning those years of feeding even when the child is separate? Is it truly separated?
No. And is that the feeding of the child create a bond between mother and child that is a lifelong bond. So they're separated yet together? Kind of like the theme that's been going along all this time. Right? separate yet together. Well, how many who are facade Luther lasuna shahara. This lower facade is used in the Quran for the period of weaning.
So alpha Sol hoonah, alpha Tom bibelot cognitiva will hold any lava signal and 11. So facade or facade is the Fatah meaning the weaning period before the completion of two years when he starts to become independent of the milk.
Well, Fossella men are in the war. anabella for Solon. porridge, when somebody leaves leaves the country, or if you leave your hometown, you've done all of your hometown. You've done all of your own time. But when you leave your hometown just there's a rich meaning here not just Colorado, it's fasula which means you separate it but are you still in some way connected to what came before?
Is there still a connection between you and the hometown you left? Yeah. Is it still in your thoughts? Is it still form your identity? Is it still shaped the way you think about the new world you entered the new society you entered? Yeah, you carry that with you so you're separated but still connected in some way?
I so so this would also use you know facilitated by
you know when the when the caravan left Egypt what they left but they left with the goods from Egypt. So there's a connection no separation
you know, so and then fossil vinyl has main then finally started getting used for when there's a decisive when a decision is made when a decision is made. So for example, Fossella vinyl has has mean actually from it, or do speakers get old fast or fast like an amateur man fossilized decision in order but it's actually from fossil which means you've separated the issues and you've made a final verdict.
Here's what's connected here's what must be separated, but not separated, too far separated just enough for justice to be served. That's the word fossil. Now, file silibinin. hottie well belting like Allah says in the hula Kowloon fossen macarons description, it is a word that is futsal itself. It is a word that separates What does that mean? It separates itself from separates itself from falsehood. It separates right from wrong.
Right. It separates needs from wants. It's it separates things from each other. Now Allah says what the one last thing about the word facade.
It gives us the word for sila for sila to Roger asherah to who was to who Allah noon. And Camila. Camila, he shows a caribou in tema when he was a follow on and forcella bill Eva facility facility he Allah de faasil actually means your larger tribe. Your extended family can be called
fasciola do you live with your extended family? Not necessarily what you're connected to them? Yes, separation and connection, separation and connection. Right. Now unless that's what they'll see, like Alicia,
this word started getting used for explanation. Let me tell you why.
In Arabic, as there's a theme when it comes to clarity, because you know, when you explain something, you clarify something, right.
Clarity is associated with separation.
Clarity is associated with what separation and confusion is associated with merging.
So, because of my bias, like always give the same example, I can't help myself, when you have chocolate milk, you don't know how much of it is milk and how much it was the chocolate. Because they've been mixed together. There's a confusion between two materials. When they were separate. You saw this is the poison, and this is the milk,
you can see that there are two separate entities. But when they're merged together, then they become one. And you can't tell where one ends and the other begins. Right? The idea of two things mixed together is that they are now confused with each other.
So the words in Arabic for confusion are marriage. They're Libba. libres. lobbyists also means clothing. Right? But it's also mean it means confusion. Why? Why is clothing and confusion the same, because you don't know what's hiding inside because the clothes and the person have merged with each other. Right? So they've created a kind of confusion about the reality of someone like a disguise, right.
But in Arabic, clarity always has to do with separation, like bronze description that it's clear is moving or not, which comes from the word ban, which literally means to separate.
So word after word in the Quran that has to do with clarification has to do with separation. That's from a teaching point of view, because I'm, I'm a teacher, I know that for a fact, you have 100 concepts you want to teach your students. But you've got to separate one concept and not let them think about anything else and cut them off from everything else. So they can focus on this one thing before you carefully connected to concept number two,
until you learn to separate a from B from C, you can't teach the alphabet. You can teach it all together, you have to do what separate and then connect separate and then connect. Or sometimes things were connected, and you have to separate them and break them apart. You can have a complicated math problem. When you break it up to its smallest components, it starts making sense. That's why your parents told you write your math calculations neatly so you can separate what you did. Right. So the idea of separation, you know, it has to do with seeking clarification. What Allah says here, when he says what have sila cliche, which we oversimplify in our translation, and
explanation of all things, is a lesson Allah helps you separate the different components of a situation, Allah helps you separate the role of the devil in the situation, he helps you separate the role of culture in this situation helps you separate your own bias from the situation, you can see all the components that are at play in your life, and you can separate all of them. And then you can see how alone wants you to respond. You don't look at all of it as one overwhelming mess, you can stop, you can separate all things and then see them for what they really are. So while others have are incapable of separating, you know, are really component by component analyzing a problem,
because they look at all the logic just I don't know how to handle it. unless I've given you the scene are cliche. So when you look at something, you look at all of its components, because I've taught you how to do that.
Another implication of this, remember we said a mother wins the child, the bone is separated, you have connected, right? You leave town, but you still have impressions of that town. See, luckily, this is maybe a little bit psychedelic for you. But I certainly see that as one of the meanings of it is, this is a story that happened 1000s of years ago, I'm separated from the story. I'm separated from it geographically and historically. And culturally, I'm separated from it. But because this Koran is the seal, it separates, yet connects.
So I'm, I'm disconnected from this person. I've never met him or his family. I've never met these people. But now there's a connection between me and them. So I know that this is a separate story, but I also know it helps me deal with what I'm dealing with. It has empowered me this separation is also a kind of union to like those Gemma joined. This is going on this is my life, but they're so we're separate when we're also connected.
It's it's an incredible phrase, what the cielo cliche. It makes us understand the Quran as a
As a way of looking at our life, as a way of looking at reality around us, as a way of, you know, and this is this is going to be my final comment to you, as a way of understanding how is the Quran an explanation for all things? It didn't have to spell out, what do we think about this, or this or this, or what you say about this, or this or this, it gave you principles through these stories, core concepts, core ways of thinking, ever, I never really there ever is a way of thinking. Once you have that ever, when you come up with a million situations that are similar, you'll know what to do. Just like in mathematics, it's not important to have the answer. It's important to understand the
process, right? Once you understand the process, then you can get 100 new problems, you can still have the answer. Because you don't memorize the answer. you memorize the process. You learn the process, the sealer cliche enabler. What is that telling us? A lie is telling us how to separate things, how to analyze things, and now you're able to do deal with
you're able to this Koran is enabling you to to understand everything. It is actually a way of explaining everything. Once you understand its timeless principles, once you understand it, then you'll see how universally it applies. It's
There's just like there are this is the farewell I have the solar and it's a long iron look at canopy processing him hypertonia Bab statement one, Makana Hadith and you've taught on Statement two? Well, I can toss the Kala divine a statement three, what have sila cliche in statement for what Holden statement 5176. And then the kindly come in, you know, there's a lot going on before a lot lets us go. He gave us a really strong farewell before he lets us go. It says if you know you're walking away and somebody says wait, hold on, you need to hear this. Before you go. Just think well think about this. You know,
the last thing that should ring in your head when you leave.
As the credits are about to roll,
what should ring in your head, this is what he's giving you. That's why I'm spending time on this because we need to unpack each and every profound phrase of this concluding commentary. This is the this is the golden seal on top of everything that Allah has talked about inside of the sutra and Lazarus may help us make the most of his every one of his words and reward us for spending time trying to learn it and enable us and strengthen our hearts to be able to commit ourselves to it and make our lives closer to his pleasure. By by every passing moment because of it. barakallahu li walakum filco Hakeem when finally we combine it with the color scheme
no I'm not doing like today.
You thought I was gonna do that right now.
