00:00:30--> 00:00:50

I can say something in English. I'm telling you recitation of the Quran adds a dimension to the Quran experience for any believer that nothing else can replace somebody on equal. Rahim. I love you, man. I'm so happy that you're visiting.

00:00:51--> 00:01:22

And I thought we'd use this opportunity to sit in chat and learn some things and something I wanted to do with you for a long time. But I didn't get a chance to do, but I'm hoping we get to do it. And for those of you that are watching today, I want to introduce you to this amazing friend of mine. And I have, you know, humbled. I know a lot of people and I have lots of acquaintances, but very, very few people I consider Dear Dear friends, right? That's a very small circle of people. And he's definitely inside of that circle. And it's even exciting to introduce him to some other friends of mine who get equally excited when

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

you're just too full of

00:01:26--> 00:02:07

just some things about him. He's one of the world's most incredible accomplished reciters and actually even coaches on how to improve your recitation of the Quran. He's actually taught some Imams and improve their recitation styles and taught them multiple styles of recitation the mahkamah in the Haram and used to have a TV show much TV right yes University. So and because the first problem talks about Muhammad in you guys might many of you might be watching this on like, you don't know what McHale MATA is, you're gonna get an idea when we get into that subject. But one of the coolest things is actually you made your way to the US because of Muhammad right? It's for somebody

00:02:07--> 00:02:15

saw the any mom saw your TV show and invited you to the US and now. Now you're a new mom in Phoenix, Arizona. Yeah, right? Hamdulillah.

00:02:16--> 00:02:36

You also got married through your Merkava. Tell me a little bit about that. It was an incredible story. Pamela Brown in my wife came to me and talked with me and we talked with each other. And let me tell you without Muhammad, I wouldn't have her now. That's that simple.

00:02:37--> 00:02:44

How does that work? hamdulillah she loves the voices. She loves the Quran, right? Then when she listened to my handy

00:02:46--> 00:02:53

dandy videos, and she said she was just watching you on YouTube. She was watching me on YouTube before we even met. Okay.

00:02:54--> 00:03:01

After we met, this issue was a powerful point for her to where she from, from America from Wisconsin. Okay.

00:03:02--> 00:03:22

Well, hamdulillah she loves she she wasn't Muslim. No, she wasn't Muslim. Okay. She became Muslim. Then she started watching the videos of the Quran. recitations? Yeah. hamdullah she watched the videos of mine. Yeah. And she, when we met this point, the point of the Muhammad was the main reason to accept me as a as a husband for

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

my career, my work my even marriage.

00:03:31--> 00:04:11

And even Subhanallah my dad, he got married from my mom, because of the same reason. Yeah, and if my dad doesn't have a good voice and a mad my mom wouldn't get married from him. Four years ago, my dad got married because of his mahkumat Yeah, and now 2020 Marry also from my wife, or I met my wife in 2020. Then I got married from her 2021 Because of this image. So right now for the next couple of years, I'm doing a project called Quran week. And so I study a surah between we started Citadel yet, my goal is to get to something more solid. And so I'll study a surah full time with my team.

00:04:13--> 00:04:59

See the double Lohana everything we can maybe 100 hours on me Shura for three weeks. So like my full time job is studying whatsoever. And part of my process for studying a surah is I recited hundreds of times. So right now, I mean, we're in another week, inshallah we'll be doing a program in Florida, on sort of common, summertime pseudo Camarilla. And the more I recite it, the more it makes me think about it, the more it makes me ask questions, that's my process, right. And one of the things that I've noticed is that my recitation of the Quran for myself, it changes a lot. Right? It's not consistent, and sometimes I can really feel connected to it and sometimes, I can't

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

sometimes I remember

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

But I recited it a certain way, and then I can't do it anymore. And I've heard you recite before I really enjoy your recitation. Right. So, like, I

00:05:09--> 00:05:53

wanted you to recite the first two ions of solid color. And I wanted to pick one of those styles and practice reciting in that style with you. Okay, and shall we do that? Okay. Before I started, the mahkumat means that the flavors of the voice Okay, yeah, we should bring them on that depend on the meaning of the verses. Okay, for some verses talking about Yeoman piano or something. You have to bring the set on your tone? Yes. Okay. So I'm sometimes I have spoken about Jen runs, you have to bring a happy tune, right. Happy, son. Yeah. This is the art of this. No, you're trying to capture the emotions of the words. Yes. The mood of the words in the tone of the recitation. Yeah, if I'm

00:05:53--> 00:05:58

going I'm going now to decide these two terabytes on shop comma, when you're if you're already doing

I think that's my favorite. Okay.

00:16:11--> 00:16:24

It's so common also tweak them upon Surya Yeah, yeah, you know, it takes you takes your your ears right away. So like, so your voice is very powerful. Right? And

00:16:25--> 00:16:45

and you have a lot of range in your voice. Yeah, right. And someone like myself, I don't have a lot of range. Okay, so how does someone like me? Because I'm not going to do what you do. So how do I do? A MACOM? Like, let's say I like cold, right? It'll probably end up being a new online version of course, I guess.

00:16:46--> 00:16:54

Right. Okay. Everybody has a pitches rather McCombs there are completely different I say Okay, cheers means the scale

00:16:55--> 00:17:11

mean the thing which you put on the scale so Okay, first of all, every college should knows his pitch. And it has two pitches, three pitches the professional correct. There are four or five, some of them have eight the whole thing on pitches because we have eight pitches every throat Hamdulillah

00:17:12--> 00:17:12

I can

00:17:15--> 00:17:17

finally have half a pitch.

00:17:18--> 00:17:55

Usually, the Quran has two pitches or three when I have to know their pitches first and this will do it. It's all in the institute. Okay. And when you know your pitch, I'm gonna give you the makan which fits your voice. Even if you already should learn like two or three more comes up so enough for it. The one that's that comes to them naturally the one that fits with their pitch. Yes. This is the point makes sense. Yeah. Cuz you're forcing yourself to know for toMac was on rust for example, cameras, you have to have the fifth or the sixth or the seventh or the eighth which, right? Okay. When we go talking about code, usually the second the third, which is normally and usually people

00:17:55--> 00:18:22

have them, and because of this code is so easy and all people love it. Nobody hates it. Or people love it. Because it comes it fits their ears and they're getting yes, there's a there's a soothing melody to it. In the Institute, we have two issues. The first issue that what is your pitch? Okay, second issue, which MACOM will fit your pitch, then you have to learn? Okay, so discover my pitch. Okay. You have to decide first then

00:18:24--> 00:18:37

we will be learning I'm gonna show you for an emoji Bismillah R Rahman. Hippo tell Robert, is it one shot call upon what II?

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

Your way up?

00:18:45--> 00:19:13

You decide to come back. Okay. And you have a second or third ditch? Okay, you have two pitches, which is the second the third. Okay. And you decide now with no accountability. Oh, yeah. But sometimes I heard some citations of your in your videos, sometimes you'll bring as well, I think, yeah, for the business. And for you the best outcome for you will be either cold or dead. Because these two McCombs, it fits with the second and the third picture, I'm gonna vote for court.

00:19:16--> 00:19:56

For now, now, we knew your pitches now, the main thing, all Kurata didn't know, I thought learn without knowing their pitches, then they spend a lot of time and they won't have anything to do. It's kind of it's kind of cool that you're putting names and labels to these things, because sometimes I'm reciting, and I can feel that I'm reciting a certain way and other times I cannot. I can't turn that back on. Like it's a completely different pitch. I suppose. This is definitely you just bring the issue. You put your hand on the issue. This is the issue. A lot of karate they spent the years that they don't know their pitches, then they are just going in the wrong way. Right. This

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

is the problem. Yeah. Okay. The

00:20:00--> 00:20:11

called to know the court has a lot of issues because of the time yeah, let me just take a five minute elevator chords version we're stuck in an elevator and I'm gonna get some some code out of this okay

00:20:12--> 00:20:32

00:20:48--> 00:20:51

this one the image okay as many keys

00:20:52--> 00:20:53

Allah outside with the same with the same button, okay Cataldo that is to

00:21:16--> 00:21:19

shop calm calm the auto

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

shop Call upon

00:21:26--> 00:21:30

your arrival by E auto,

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

you well Pulusu

00:21:42--> 00:21:43

70% IV

00:21:48--> 00:22:25

motion, I can tell you right now not because you're sitting with me not because I love you. But I have to tell you, you have a good receiver in your mind. Because the main thing for this knowledge to have a strong receiver mind which means you have something receives the waves, especially the special waves, which are the columns because we have two kinds of waves, regular waves that that's regular talking and especial waves, that the waves of singing or making initiate or recite the Quran right especially waves, it comes like this. If you have a good receiver to receive the waves, that means your voice will be good. And you will have a lot of tunes and flavors in your mind. Right you

00:22:25--> 00:23:07

will receive them you can use them in the future. You will have it in two minutes you have you have the way what I'm really excited about. And this is the reason I sort of made this video is because as a student of the Quran as someone who just I just want to spend the rest of my life and that may Allah preserve my intention and give me the step online and give my my team also the risk and the ability to be able to do this is to just dive into the Quran and get so much from the Quran this endless treasure keep keep getting more and more from it and I'm telling you recitation of the Quran adds a dimension to the Quran experience for any believer that nothing else can replace. Like it's

00:23:07--> 00:23:46

the it's an irreplaceable part of understanding contemplating and actually more important than anything else. Feeling the Quran and the Quran is just tradition of it being rhythmic and it being actually the I know some of you will find this offensive but this is the only way I can describe it. It's the music of the soul. Right there's some story you told me about someone who has these these melodies you can just put these melodies and I can I can say something in English like I could do that right? And Bucha like you do someone who you recited to in Arabic but it wasn't Quran yeah right this I did this one time we were so close

00:23:47--> 00:24:06

for me yeah he's not Arabic Yeah, he's a new Muslim Yeah. Then I try the time to recite like Al Quran but I was reciting something not like regular you know, can you phrase it give me a sample what did you do like in this example

00:24:08--> 00:24:13

in quantity fee in continued

00:24:15--> 00:24:25

hobby continue C has been for minorities

00:24:26--> 00:24:27

have been

00:24:29--> 00:24:30


00:24:31--> 00:24:33

Normally, the thumb

00:24:37--> 00:25:00

the same will do the same hole and same thing, right? But it's not quite as awkward as any any talk just anything for the person told me. I don't feel like the regular citation for Quran you were reciting two minutes ago. Something touches my heart. But now I cannot feel it. It doesn't touch my heart Allah

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

Is this a strange Surah are so what's this? I don't feel it. And this is someone who's new Muslim Arabic novice just so they technically they hear this they should hear no difference. If he does know Arabic I will tell you it's okay. Maybe also my our audience now they know Arabic If you want to know the writers, right, but this person didn't know any anything about Arabic language and he didn't feel feel it as soon as I say this,

00:25:28--> 00:25:38

this is the there's a divine effect to this book, there's a divine effect this book. So what I what I wanted to do, which I like I'm gonna keep improving privately because I gotta hook up like that.

00:25:39--> 00:26:19

What I want you guys to do is to take advantage of the McAuliffe Institute, the link is in the video. Those of you especially that have memorized the Quran or want to enjoy reciting the Quran, you really just want to enjoy this, this, this connection to Allah through beautifying your voice, like, it's not just what others hear, you can, you can hear the like your heart hears it. It's an indescribable spiritual experience to be able to enjoy recitation of Quran and his program. We're calling it Ramadan. Ramadan is it agile, is just go through the steps you whether you're beginner, intermediate, especially if you're a father of the Quran, or you're on your way to memorizing the

00:26:19--> 00:26:57

Quran, and you just want to just up your level of recitation not just to impress people that you can lead them away. But for yourself, just making, just enjoying really bringing joy into your recitation of the Quran, I think you should take full advantage of shaker brains work. And I'm really hoping to see that you guys like your starting point, like where you began with him, and where you ended up with him. And I think I'm going to do it too. Like, I'm going to do a little by little with him and keep working on my code, actually. And see, if you have the tune, you have one dimension. Yeah, so I'm gonna get like a bunch of dimensions, and see how I progress. Because I

00:26:57--> 00:27:39

think it's really cool. And I think this is an opportunity for, you know, Quran lovers around the world, to actually, you know, celebrate the recitation of the Quran and celebrate the beautification of the Quran, it's a tradition that we should, we should just carry on, like, it's nothing else, you know. So in this, in this age of like, the music industry, and the Tick Tock industry and Instagram, like, there's entertainment and sounds going into our ears all the time. And, you know, many of those sounds, they're, they're emptying out our souls, and the beautiful sounds of the Quran, are a necessary cleansing from a lot of that noise. So I think it's incumbent on us to become part of that

00:27:39--> 00:27:50

culture of beautifying the recitation of the Quran. So I'm really grateful that you came up, I love hanging out with you. And I'm really excited to see what students from around the world learn from you. And it's a lot I'm gonna beat all of them and so

00:27:51--> 00:27:58

we are addressing four categories of people. Those who wanted to learn this because they are her father in this domain, right?

00:27:59--> 00:28:05

Throw your hands a lot of other issues, those who wanted to just learn to recycle and enjoy the Quran even the

00:28:06--> 00:28:51
