So hey, I think your mic is breaking up a little bit. Do you want to log out and log back in maybe that will help the issue. Okay.
We'll start when he gets back on
good Sam. Way better reader last time again because the mic was cutting. Okay.
The call the
same issue. Why maybe it's maybe my voice is maybe the mic is not used to this so my can't handle your voice is too, too epic.
So I'm going to continue suhaib and to the rest of our audience for our tour. Welcome to our final session on select users. This was really just a kind of a get together I wanted to have with all of you to share some final thoughts on this journey. So if you're watching
The surah and like I've been saying, a small special surprise that he and I feel very connected to. And I think all of you will appreciate and shallow Tyler, but what I wanted to start with is
just some feedback from the audience. And so whoever you have access to comments also, yeah, I can see. Okay. So if something pops out to you, you can just put it up on the screen, you can hit click it and it can show I think. I think so. I'll try.
So if something pops out to me,
like a summary come from?
Those are good.
What does that say?
anatomy of a corrupted faith.
I don't see. I don't see a thing that lets me click it. I don't maybe
I don't have this kind of powers.
So he says anatomy of corrupted faith, no, Molly, Han, share, this subject is so deep. And I'd never thought of the subject of chicken this way. I've listened to this portion several times repeating again, and again, I feel like I'm catching. I can't get enough of it. And I want to dive deep in it. It helped me a lot. In fact, it changed my perspective and the way I think about Allah subhanaw taala I believe my candle nanosilica that I write
my dear Big brother, my inspiration, my beloved teacher? Well, that's nice.
But see, we asked a question. For those of you who didn't know, in my last post, I said, those of you that joined all or some part of this journey with us, if you guys there were some parts of the Sula that deeply connected with you resonated with you something you felt that emotional bandwidth, something that helped you with personally, we want to hear about it. Because you know, that's what we found in this role over and over again, for ourselves. And it's just a very emotionally rich Sora. And it's hard to you know, there's the enemy side of it, the seed side of it, but there's just a side of it, that it's just impossible. to overlook, it's a very deep emotional connection. There's
so many people for whom this is their favorite sutra or
sutras that are most dear to them. So that's without having to have studied syllabi, or to have gone to the kind of depths that we've tried to go into it over these number of months. And there's the things that just really resonate with people there are things that make it stand out. There are things that people connect with a place or position or perspective or you know, quote unquote character within the story.
Of course, most of all jacoba Islam and Yusuf Islam You know, they're examples and what they went through the hardships they went through and knowing that things turn out well in the end, that's the kind of story that we all you know, we like to think about when we are in that dark place, you know,
look at this, read that
it made me think of use of Felisa brother did that to him then what mine do to me is minor in comparison
also have beautiful patients and not take revenge inshallah Wow, that's heavy.
So hon Allah
We read the corrupted faith when there's something in Arabic I don't know if they say anything about
okay until we find something we'll just discuss it ourselves and Charla
that say? Because my lace has been named Medusa Thank you.
the Sora is deeper my luck and test us in different ways. Even the profits over lower tested and some of the greatest ways Yeah, yeah.
In this way, I wish this was an order for a larger group of audience in the subcontinent the sibling rivalry shared was seriously worth understanding by the DC culture. No did
not read that out to me insane.
Is 52 and 53. His words are hers she talked about dichotomy which does exist in a family beautiful. So it was a possibility of my ability to see and yeah, absolve my own self. Who was it who said these particular things have been the sole historical events has been described, so I feel blessed narrating just either this event or that event actually took place. So they caught me doesn't apply. Please keep your comments on this.
I still think it applies. I think Ron has the ability to
multiple, multiple things in one in one statement, and it can have multi dimensional quotes, which is impossible actually, for literature or for news reports, but allow the owner of language can do that he can actually fuse multiple people's speech into one's phrase. Like, you know, aka Lucifer with Rahu, for example.
So, it may well be true that one incident took place in one type of speech was was was stated, but yeah, at the same time, whenever we find something that is somehow open to interpretation or ambiguous in the Koran, we certainly are not going to put it down to a ladder that did not manage you see the problem here to see in a way that we understood it one way so it allows us to set it in a way the left open that's something to ponder on. Right doesn't mean we can't get to the answer but there's something in the ambiguity that we're supposed to appreciate as well. Yeah.
Okay, this one my biggest lesson was and is whatever situation you are in at the moment if you believe in have patience, no matter what is happening, there's a way out for every situation to handle are beautiful and true. I love the concept that Yusuf Ali Hassan was tortured essentially for the betterment of 1000s more or less of children during the drought it's hard to understand why innocent people especially children, and then see more of that comment self Okay, there we go, sufferance, a test of demand for myself, so I benefit from the suitor for that reason, the greater good, unless plan. Yeah.
Well, somebody got inter encouraged to study Quran more deeply because of the surah
There you go.
Let's dive into Kinshasa. Hey, I have a good job. Oh, okay. That was enjoying my recognition, everything I still remember in the month of February 2020, I was telling my colleagues that I need to learn to eat of Quran and it's not happening and I feel so empty. Then lockdown started and you took us through the beautiful procedure and you should use it. And this became one of the best times of my life. Marcela, thank you so much for sharing that with us. Because I was badly struggling in maintaining good relations with my sisters. This surah brought
meaning we lost some of them. It didn't come up here but yeah. So yeah.
Let's read this. Is this the one? No, this series has given me some serious life lessons, from sobor to living a grateful life and to look for positive and everything and negative to how to be
in a marital relationship. Also, people may my age and younger really do need some deep studies of solos, which don't portray the typical perspective of a broader perspective for the youth especially to build up a stronger oma with strong firm faith. So Pamela, looking forward to sort of calf series so am I. Charla, yeah, people are sad about the word farewell and, but it's just, we're just moving. We were sad about it. Yeah, but we're done.
Yeah, no reformatting from the surah sticking to recite it
and still contemplate it.
And stick with it, by the way, because that's something that we started doing. We haven't finished
the translation. Oh, we are we gotta hit that really hard. Yusuf Ali Salaam had brothers, I have five sisters.
Our families torn apart. Our sister tells me We don't talk, visit
or know anything about each other anymore because another sister is married to a man who practices Schick. And he's doing this to the family. I want him to show this man that we come together like a loving family. But it's like they accept this situation. As people have different difficult situations and not everybody can be on board but family at the end of the day, still family and one person's difference or misguidance, whatever you want to call it. You know one thing you do learn in the sutra is there were people that were so far apart? I mean, there this person you're saying does black magic. Usually slums brothers are disrespecting a prophet.
You know, pick your sin. But family has to come together. Right? So holla.
Look at this one.
I like the article you talked about the true meaning of patience, sober doesn't mean that you are not allowed to cry or feel sad whether seek the beauty in the situation and connect with a law that is profoundly beautiful. As one of the very unique teachings of the surah.
Amen, wrote, it's amazing how Koran covers the emotional psychology. Sometimes it hits that part in you that you didn't even know was there. It helped me understand my emotions better. The definition somebody explained to me, I hope suffering and sober was out of this world clock and you know, that was some work we both had to do, to work through those ions and figure out what's going on.
Ask some of those harder questions. Yeah, because sometimes you get a kind of commonplace understanding that also has become very common in the whole of society is not necessarily just about what we're reading in books, but certainly some is to get quoted, from time to time in little family arguments or in situations. So we tell them have suburb. And then we may even say, you know, for southern Germany, or we may even say, in a few hours near LA, so record these things, and then that those the way we use it gives it a certain meaning in our own minds and in the minds of other people who hate us. So what was maybe a first challenge for you in need was to try to let go of some of the
things that we are have become so sure of, and what these things mean, and to really try to listen to the words of Allah subhanaw taala Yeah, Frederick, the hardest thing for us also not the hardest thing, but one of the one of the most rewarding things is to come to court on Sundays with no presuppositions and to really engage the study, just the only humility we have to show is to the word of Allah and just completely, like, allow it to speak for itself as best we can. We have our own human limitations. But that's been a really profound part of our journey. watching and listening to both of you is a double blessing. Oh, boy, may you keep on shedding light on the words of Allah,
which have never been introduced to us. Well, it was light. Our last words are the light, we're just getting shed. And we're not we ain't doing this reading.
I sometimes tell my students about your insights, they're always amazed as myself, we always be in our lives. Egyptians say Jessa qumola. Hey, well, that's not true.
It is said verify. Verily, passion turns kings into slaves, and patients turn slaves into kings. Do you not see the story of use of Angelica? Okay. All right.
See, we don't know how to name
your name. I never listened to the suit of Quran before. After I found my beloved a southern lady Han, through my friend, I could listen to some parts of it is mind blowing to me cool.
To hear more insights from you, people,
the biblical and historical comparisons and people
really appreciate it.
This is you know, the three categories this person is talking about.
This is quite an interesting comment at the end here. Where it is I have been practicing ugly patients too, as needed.
What is that? Who said that?
On the screen? This one right now? No, the new one that you just this one. Okay, let's read it. How healing happens by poron. I came to know by this series plus I started sharing points with my families. By putting status, the summary and people are really amazed by the depth of the lesson is like a little kid and I'm trying to work on patience because I've been practicing ugly patience.
If someone can recognize it in themselves, found thing because criticizing oneself is the hardest thing to do. You know, what we tend to do is either be overly defensive, or beat ourselves up and be you know, put ourselves down. So either you're flawless or you are nothing but a pile of flaws. right but some beep somebody's being able to be honest with themselves and say here's my issue. I'm, I think the form of patience I'm taking isn't beautiful. That's very insightful. It's a worthy quality to have in a person
is quite different from any other story in the Quran. Even the characters who have done bad and wrong deeds, the villains of the story, so to speak, ended up regretting what they did and repentant, this is true. And every one of them had their own rational rationale was surprisingly relatable. That's what I found beautifully remarkable about the story and the narration, Sinhala. That's awesome.
Latif, how the name of Allah Latif is suddenly reflected throughout the story is really moving.
Now, that was really moving to us to I remember, I was actually getting COVID tested while we were discussing Latif and you were talking about how a virus goes through a poor.
tell you that you had
I didn't have it yet. So well.
Wow. Okay, that's a question in resume. About not about sotc I loved how Allah new prophet Yusuf will end up in prison. That was his plan all along, but still alive inspired him to say, jail is generous, more beloved to me. So him going to jail is not a punishment, but almost as an honor. Allah granted him his wish. And then his the same part is missing from the Bible and is presented only as him being humiliated and going to jail. But I just came to raise proper use Muslim standard. That's a
Really beautiful insight.
It is I have cried in the middle of full crowd listening to the word of Allah. I have thought of the pain of hustle the use of as it was my own. I have been I've been ashamed of finding the traits of brothers and myself and being hopeful and blessed to feel the connection is useful in many ways. It's really beautiful.
Yeah, that's the hard part, isn't it when you are sick those who are doing wrong in a story and then you see that in yourself? Yeah, cuz it's everybody wants to see use of in themselves. That's, well, that's the comfort zone. Yeah. The growth song.
I know you're a good preacher, but can you explain further more, but I am number 86. Where he said I only complain my suffering and grief to a lion. I know from Allah, what you don't know.
Well, first of all, I'm not a preacher. But cool. I think we talked about it quite a bit. Yeah, maybe if people just, you know, try to find the previous lessons. It's all on the, you know, YouTube, it's all in the Facebook page. So all available and
I was just caught up and praying to Allah subhanaw taala to guide me regarding a family issue my in laws side, huh? where me and my husband are treated really differently from the rest of his siblings by his mother, we have drifted really far apart. And I feel really anxious as to how Allah looks upon it. Just reading the comments and your talk, as I haven't followed the suit makes me think we should do our part in a better way to no matter what the circumstances, just like you said, By the end of the day. I don't know.
I think the most powerful message you're sending is like we literally not having any excuse on judgment day. You're vulgaris Ising may be simplified is the word they're looking for. Yeah, complex objects for girls.
Or in most cases, sometimes we tough is little like suburbia, there's so much more and giving the most important message of the humanity accessible to everyone who wants to hear learn. I think often we think that somebody has very
simple subjects, but it's actually very difficult. Yeah.
But the minor Brother, do you think that the use of is complete? Now? Do you think we have learned each and every lesson from the surah? which Allah wants to teach us? No, no.
means we were successful in scratching its surface over the last year. That's me, I don't know if we said this. out loud. We said it to each other. That literally, our feeling just now let's go back to the beginning.
And we would find not because of any special talent, but just having got this far. We can go back and we can find so much more. Yeah, the second study of the soul, we started our study would start over again. But we do want to we want to
you know, give some attention to this.
In the beginning sessions, the comparison between musasa and Yusuf was so awesome. And my favorite one was the beautiful patients of Jaco when he said when he against the southern Jamil your insights stuck in my mind cool.
Yeah, I was very moved by that comparison for myself to why many brothers who have become Muslim in jail, such as myself who chose the name use? While thank you for sharing that, Martin. How many people must have have found kirtan and found comfort in the story of use of a sauna. So holla
I feel like sort of useless.
I mean, acid is lucky to come in. Yeah.
And then the student of mine changes his name to a different Professor every day or every other day. I think he was fresh off before something GPT chooses either the book or the author.
I feel like so Joseph is talking about me. It's like every character in the sutra is weirdly connected to me.
The shirt thing
that you discuss the fact that somebody is not the absence of grief or sadness, but the way we act on that other. That other law is the thing that made me convert to Islam.
never asked why they say Alhamdulillah and deal with
that which comes your way.
I'm not sure if I understand that comment.
Would you not say that the meaning of the eye are limited to what is narrated from the seller for what is meant to be Arabic language, but as for deriving benefits and rulings, there is no end.
Yeah, that's the sealant, a double dichotomy. That's heaven. I've talked about before our interpreting Quran session that we had
We dealt with precisely that subject
that there is a, you know, a definite meaning to much of the Quran. But then what we can explore from the text and what more we what benefits we can draw is an endless ocean.
Let's see Let's take a couple more and then we'll get into our surprise.
What is the same
exact location for the amazing work I have tried to translate it into Urdu and sharing with many all over the world this amazing school has helped and heal so many specially so many, especially the southern Demeter of Satan jacobellis reminiscent of use of race in America low FICO Yeah, I'll accept your work and allow you to, you know further the work of the on whether you translate our stuff or anything else. Just you know, people can get the word out and
oh, wow, look at this question. Is apostate allowed to come back to Islam?
Yeah, they're alive.
Leone's 11 conaghan Quran came to give warning to whoever's alive, there's no allowed everybody's nobody's the door The door was open.
That's a really good solid piece of question. What's the difference between Emily and Hannah?
One of them is from the brothers of Yusef you decide which one
so I meant dreaming the sun.
let's see. Let's see this. Another thing this is makalah buena Yella toluene Baba, Baba. So Han Allah is supposedly very father asking his sons to enter separately from different doors, OR gates, probably he was afraid that people will take them by the envious I think that's the proof that we just that he was just a doting father. And that he touched the depth of my heart now just the concern he had for his kids.
Sub last part is when I listened to it in the middle of nowhere, and I feel like a ledge talking to me. And it's so incredible that the story back from so many years is helping me solve my problem. That's really beautiful. So one of the things guys that we save, and I have leaned on one resource that we have heavily leaned on, to find our answers to some of the hardest questions in our exploration of sort of use of has been fostered in arrazi Razi. And many of you know many of you don't. So Hibbs actually translated the first volume of his commentary on the Quran. So what I wanted to do first is have you sohaib say a few words about Ozzy just a brief kind of outline of his
life, and his contribution. And then I want to unfold that surprise that we've been talking about. Okay. So, remember, Rosie, is one of the moms. So now we can see he's one of the moms who really had a lot of influence in, in thinking Muslims and, and defending the basic doctrines. And but the main important contribution that he made was system FC risk at the handover
or at the federal cabinet, which in English, as it is the great exegesis. And this work he did, you know, well, in the midst of all sorts of travels and debates and all sorts of encounters they had over his life he lived in, well, he died in six or six or six of the hijra, right. So from our perspective is is early. Yeah, but he's already coming after about three months of the year. So his work incorporates a lot of what we said before, incorporates the same kind of material that existed before. But something that's very special about a memorizes of seeing is is very full of raising issues and questions.
Sometimes philosophical nature sometimes even though the scientific nature, so a lot of times you find in the silver rods, the things that you might not find in a lot of other texts that are also available to us. And no doubt, all of a sudden have come after him have been influenced by him if affected by you know, his his opinions continue to circulate in there. And there's a human dimension, which we're going to learn about today as well.
You know, and I was looking at in terms of the disorders and see to see when they were written. It's kind of amazing how quickly he worked compared to us. All right, because over two months, so Najib and Siobhan have 601 after the Hydra, so that's 1205 if this is the year 2020
Then in the year 2005. Wow.
And that was a year. Yeah, he completed countries on
on five consecutive for us. So that was going straight from sort of Uranus, which is sort of 10. And then who would, and then Joseph, which is a one, and then arrived, and Ibrahim, all of these five minutes.
In those two months, I couldn't write an essay in two months. And I think he was I think he was traveling at the tank. But on top of this, he had also been going through an extraordinary amount of personal grief and pain. So that connects with the theme that we've touched on already. And people have highlighted from the sutra, that grief is something that is normal is inescapable, it is just a reality of life. And at the end of each of his sorrows, he just makes a little note
that I've been going through a lot at the moment, I've lost my son, my, my dear boy, have met.
And until now, I haven't uncovered the information about how old was his son one month, and what was the what was the story behind his passing, I hope that I can find that out. But all we know, all the idle, at least till now is that he had a son who passed away and memorizing was was feeling that and then at the end of the salts, you would just make a note that please make dua for me to offer my son Mohammed. And at the end of some of these soldiers, he went a bit further and included some lines of poetry, in particular, in sort of use of particular soldiers. So this is where we see that he actually saw the pain of losing a son seemed more fresh in this surah. Yeah, so it wouldn't be that
surprising if this is where he where he feels that the most and and therefore expresses at the most. And that's a really nice thing, because it's nice in the sense that when we when we get to read that, centuries later, we connect to the author in a way that otherwise we, we sometimes read their works as if it's a very dry affair, it's all information is having information at times. And then you come to something like this. And you realize, well, this is a human being, this is a man.
This is a this is a person with with, you know, struggles in life with hardship.
And you get this feeling of connection, especially when he asks, as one of the least one of the commenters did. And we saw that before too, you know, that their husband had passed away. And we said to you please reach out to help for him. That's exactly what we find. Here the end of
of the Shirazi in the use of so that's one of the sources that have translated in the for the next volume, which isn't out yet.
So yeah, here we see,
after coming through the Tafseer he says the author May God be pleased with him said
and this may be like added by an editor this part.
The extra gene snips are sort of the sort of was completed or praises due to God and Wednesday, the seventh of Siobhan 601, after the hijra, made the work with seals and blessings and divine pleasure. At the time, I was deeply grieved at the passing of my righteous self, Mohammed May God and Bella and his mercy and grant him special grades of bounty and beneficence. I have composed his brief lines in his memory. So this is where he shares he shows reporting lines. So how shall I love this? Because he
he wrote he made poetry at nearly the end. Is it all the way at the end or near the end of sedusa? Right at the end?
There was a part before that Sunday. So right at the beginning, we are the grief section, right? Yeah, yeah. So we recited from
Rebecca Addington, and one Kennesaw inverse. We have the first number here. Where denotes the law for use of sets that were funny muslimin 101101? Yeah. So make me die as a Muslim.
So probably the clearest understanding of that really, as we as we went with in our comments on it was when I die, let that be as a Muslim, right. But something was sitting already understood as being like he was saying, Yeah, Allah, use advance. I'm saying, you know, I've done everything I have to do on this earth now. I'm in a good state, and I feel your pleasure. So just take me now as a Muslim. And let me join with the righteous in the hereafter. So that's, that's a word that has been sometimes understood. So remember, Razzie when he comments on this he goes into quite a bit of depth about about this idea. And it's a little bit like
I would be careful about reading stuff like if you're in a kind of mood, you know, don't want to get into depression and stuff, but he talks about
Sort of the futility of life and just basically, nothing in this life is this the nature of this life, it's just temporary and nothing really is
of great consequence compared to the hereafter. And so a person might reach a place in their life where they feel like okay, well, you know, I should be, I should be ready to,
to move on to the next slide. And I want you to read it to me one paragraph from that. Actually, my favorite bit is when he talks about the dung beetle.
Are you going to read that? portion? Yeah, okay. Well, I like one sentence. So it says basically the things that people like in this in this life, you know, things like food, for example, a person eats fine food and right so he says, look, at the end of the day food in the whole sort of process of eating food is basically disgusting. We think about it, you know, chewing and saliva and then it goes through the body and then it comes out the other end. What is the whole attraction of this? You know, what, what is the beauty in this in reality compared to the Hereafter, right? So that's a bit grim. And then
he says, with regards to,
like Fine Foods. He says that a dung beetle,
a dung beetle and joins for our audience who doesn't know what's a dung beetle?
Who can explain them beetle? It's a
bug, that it's done, right? So it's feces of animals.
Let me find this part.
So he says that a dung beetle
enjoys the dung, as much as you enjoy fine, almond sweet pastry.
So it says point is like, at the end of the day, all the pleasures of his life are really temporary or really lonely compared to the pleasures of the hereafter. And then he says, I myself am deep, I'm deeply immersed in the state.
If I were to open the door to describe the defects of these physical pleasures in detail, X ray volumes have barely scratched the surface. That is why I have taken to repeating this invocation of use of Isilon,
in which he says, Don't allow me to die as one who submits and join me with the righteous. So I'm just like, he was wary of life itself at this point. Yeah, he's gone through a lot. And he just felt like okay, Alhamdulillah I have worked a few that, you know, I'm in a good place to meet them must count out. And it's a beautiful thing of a person can can feel that way.
But, of course, I'm not encouraging us to feel sort of factors of life or, you know, if you can get into dark places, but you know, you're on the one hand that is dark and depressing. And on the other, it just highlights the humaneness of despair, and our faith is a combat against that. But at the end of it all, there's still room for us to be human. You know, I'm thinking not just of the grief of jacobellis, but also like, the desperation felt by Miriam Sarah Manali. Yeah, Layton me to Colorado, come to an SEM and see the emotional, or the overwhelming emotion could be any number of emotions. In that case, it was humiliation. And in his case, it's the coping with the loss of his
beloved son. You know, I've met people that have lost a parent, and it's been a couple of years, and they still feel like it just happened. They're not able to stop their eyes from rolling tears, they're not able to enjoy a meal or have a laugh or distract them, they're just not able to do it. So Allah tests with grief, some people more than others. And just like, I think it's important to note that just like, some people have more threshold for physical pain, some people have stronger bodies than other people. Some people have stronger bones than other people have. Some people have stronger eyesight than other people have. Some people have more emotional forbearance, they can
And, you know, be able to distract themselves or, you know, heal more quickly. Or even if they don't heal, they're able to cope and function. And other people are not able to do that, like a lot did not give everybody the same ability to deal with emotionally difficult situations. So often we say, well, you should have suffered like XYZ, just like no two people have the same genetic makeup. No two people have the same emotional makeup necessarily. And their, their way of coping with something difficult, like your mama Razi, for example, somebody could say you should have more human.
Before we go there, I think
for someone who wrote a commentary on that many soldiers in the course of two months, first of all, writing and writing in that day's technology, and then in the middle of travel and then in the middle of that what he's going through
With his son and other and travel isn't like us sitting in a lobby air conditioned in an airport. This is this is the 12th century. And for someone like that, to feel that kind that level of grief,
and be able to cope with it in this way, is actually, to me, it's a very powerful reminder of how we have to be
aware that other people might not be able to understand how I'm coping with something. And I might not be able to understand why they're coping, and I can't impose my timeline and my process on them.
Right, and we were all trying to find comfort in Allah's words. And as he and I'm pretty sure he finds a remarkable amount of comfort in the words of use of a nice, big and it is a story of redemption. And we actually learned about so much of that redemption from him. Right? And yet he is coming to the office, he muslimah and his grief overtakes him
in that moment, I mean, I could almost imagine tears rolling down his eyes as he's writing this, you know what I'm saying? Like, it's just, it's such a heavy thing for for that soul to bear that. And to even put that pen to paper. That's that his, his contemplation and the state of his heart kind of carries on through these words. But anyway, go on. Yeah, yeah. So I mean, at this point, then he shares
10 lines of poetry. What show those to you. We can see them one by one. And they are they are very, they're very sidelines. They're very intense. And I'll share a few so beautiful. How
are you? Okay, so I'll read the English. You read the Arabic? Oh,

Even a modern print or online, all of them will say Well, I can tell amlak that would reassure them right so
however the manuscript should show you images right at the end, I looked at some some, you know, handwritten copies of the book before it came into print form and they say Aflac Aflac could be translated as spheres. So basically the idea you have just think about the kind of cosmology or the picture of the university that they had those times that you know about this earth there are there are spheres of the heavens that basically in the form of spheres, so the Aflac here really means the heavens or the skies? Yeah. And here he is still he's talking about the angels and the angels who were in the sky as you could pay them off. Then I would have as they're taking the my child's soul.
Yeah, I would. Yeah, I would have put myself forward and said no, just take me and I'll be the payment. So Aflac then is it? Um, lack I just looked I looked it up and add some people and I'm not convinced that that is the plural of malloc. Or, or that works at all. So that's why I stuck with the word I love that.

So the fee is highlighted because again, the printed copies of the song in NACA, really harsh and I took this from the manuscript and I think it's clearer, but both of them you know, are a bit open to interpretation. I see.
Now, so I mean, the point of this line essentially is that this is a decree the death of someone is decreed in the highest heavens. Yeah, flows from there. I have no say in that. Any emphasizes both things in the coming lines as well. He emphasizes the pain and the desperation and he emphasizes the satisfaction for both

So this is this is actually particularly pertinent for our COVID situation, isn't it? A lot of people have passed away in hospital beds and have to be quarantined and people can't go say farewell to them and
so hon Allah
Yeah, yeah. So what's strange about this line, in terms of what happened with the text in every printed copy, you will not find this line in the portal. What happened is that somehow it got kind of mixed in with a bit that came after it. So hopefully I can show you that.
That part of it was supposed to be the end of the poem, but it got sort of mixed in with the subsequent statement and the word was also lost by the manuscript
Okay, go ahead read that. So yeah, he says here that we'll see him find that because the further maybe Murphy this is a problem as the printed text the min the min part is missed as well. I mean, at first I was highlighted in yellow I did I ended that.

That's supposed to be the poetic line.
The one we read where the Moto fuel button by either one?

means that I request anyone who looks through this book of mine and benefits from the many invaluable points contained within it, to recite the Fatiha and supplicate, especially for my son, and me, to receive mercy and forgiveness. I've always prayed for those who have done the same for me. May the blessings of Allah of God be upon our Master Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, the members of his household and his companions, and his abundant and abundant Salutations, all praises for God, Lord of the worlds
absolutely beautiful. I thought this was important to share, because, you know, and let's go to the next slide and just show you I just guys just taken the picture that you're looking at on the screen.
This is not his own writing. This is a handwritten manuscript of the or a copy of the original. Yeah, yeah, so this could be a few centuries after but but you know, the practice of has always been to copy the text by hand until later on, then,
the printing press was invented. So but nearly all been copied copies of copies. You look at a page like that, and I was telling you, I'll repeat it, you feel like you're a part of something so much larger than life and so powerful, like a person who died many centuries ago, whose heart felt this ache, as he read an eye of the Quran and put it put pen to paper, I loved Baraka and his work, and he wanted the dollar to be echoed. And look at what Allah does. Right. And he, here we are centuries later. And I remember reading a paper looking at a paper that was a copy of his work centuries after he died. And centuries after that, it's on a digital screen, and we're making dua for him. And
that's just what connects people of the Quran together across continents in generations and, you know, cultures and lives in so many lives, tied to Yusuf Ali Salaam are not just in the world we live in today. But through the centuries, it's an overwhelming realization, that we get to be honored and to be part of that. So I wanted to just First of all, personally, thank you so much for being just an invaluable part of this journey. And I also wanted to thank our audience, you know, for for taking part in this, this work with us and being our support your does mean a lot to us, to both of us. And we do value your comments. And, you know, take them into consideration when we do
I'm very encouraged that, you know, we can not only continue our work, but better ourselves. And, you know, learn from this experience and cello data continue to serve. Hopefully a better understanding of allez book, if not a better understanding, a better spreading of its awareness. And so that so that, you know, as many people as possible around the world can access what Allah has to say, and can think deeply about it. So I'm very honored to be a part of this and also have you feel the same way. And I just pray that Allah azza wa jal accepts this work and accepts our our efforts. This is a time to make a good announcement, not just to say farewell, of course, many of you know,
our next venture is going to be the second half of social graph. I'll mention specific numbers a little bit later.
But in addition, so have been I have already conceptualized and are starting are planning on a weekly talk show on the Quran, where different subject matter pertaining to the Quran is going to be discussed, whether somebody has written an interesting paper, maybe even a controversy regarding the Koran. something beautiful about the Quran, literary analysis, you name it, just different dimensions of just contemplating exploring, studying and appreciating the Quran. I think that discussions around the Quran should be just a part of our lives. So there's the study of the sutras will continue in sha Allah, Allah, and we're hoping that our talk show will also be the subject of,
you know, real interest and become a resource for you guys on different topics pertaining to the Quran. And of course, then it'll also give us an opportunity to engage our audience. And if when you guys bring subject matter to our attention, and say, here's something that confused me, or here's something that's really interesting, or what are your thoughts on this, that that'll give us homework, it'll give us an opportunity to tap into other scholars, researchers, experts, and bring them on and have a discussion because at bay, you know, we are big believers in collaborative learning, and to take advantage of other people and the good work that they're doing and, you know,
bringing them on board and really, you know, enlivening the comments, you know, the conversation, it's, we don't see this as a stage we see this as a platform, to proliferate a message, the top priority is what's the best way to get the message out? What's the best way to get a better understanding and better, you know, clear thought about the word of Allah out and whatever gets us there in sha Allah, we're willing to do so. So hey, if you'd like to add some thoughts, and then Charlotte, Allah will conclude
No, I don't
Just, I don't have anything to add, it's just really it's a, it's a privilege to, to have this book, you know, to be a part of it's actually
and to be to be to be a follower of the Prophet Muhammad.
And it's, it's such a blessing to be able to, you know, to be in a state of security. And in a state of safety in which which many of our brothers and sisters around the world are not in, or they struggle to find those moments when they can, you know, they have a chance to learn so, so I feel that burden on my shoulders as a learner for grand as a student, before anything else. Yeah. And for all those who are able to be with us on this journey, we should be very thankful that we're able to do that. And I know that people are all around the world. And I know that people are in all sorts of situations even within the one country. And don't think that we don't appreciate that. But most
importantly, a last gen has angels who who are watching who are reporting, they know your sincerity, they know how much you strive, you know, we are making an effort, but some of you perhaps are making efforts many times many times more than ours. Yeah. I mean, there are people that have barely can afford a phone and they're using up their data plans to listen to our gurus. And there are people that are, you know, in all kinds of challenges in life that we can't even imagine bearing. I know of people that are doctors and nurses in different hospitals around the world that write to me and say that they have they're like 2022 hour shifts, sometimes and they're in between just their breath of
fresh air is just catching on. You know, so we were so grateful to you there you guys write to us and tell us how much you appreciate what we're doing. I know for a fact, when you look at the record of what the angels are documenting, we're the ones that are grateful to you. Were the ones that are that Allah has really honored us more than we can ever deserve. or earn that Allah has put something in the hearts of many people that they're benefiting from our work so May Allah overlook our shortcomings keep us sincere, keep us grounded
allow us to correct our errors and learn from them. And inshallah tada keep our hearts soft towards you know, human beings in general but in particular members of this beautiful oma so with that inshallah barakallahu li walakum feel called Anil Hakeem when a fan er can be it would like him. So hey, we'll see you soon somebody
