Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to start with I think I fell in love with what you said since I was almost six or seven years old when my father started teaching me the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala Have mercy on his soul and all the deceased people inshallah me
how many of you fell in love with Sophia substance or your young?
Mashallah, great. How many of you started memorizing Socrates if at the very beginning of it, you know, memorizing the Quran
Next question is because my approach inshallah is going to be a linguistic approach because all of us, or let's say most of us until I know the story, but we will drive lots of lessons inshallah from the surah, but we will be focusing on the language inshallah. So, how many of you know Arabic, I just want to know exactly.
How would you have no, no order?
I will order Thank you. Okay.
I think all of us speak English, right.
Just as a quick introduction to love before we go into the language, I just want to share with you that there were certain conditions, one sort of use of was revealed to the Prophet salallahu alaihe. Salam.
The situation in Mecca was very tense. And as soon as I mentioned,
with the decade of the hour, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, despite lots of hatred and opposition, on the part of the pagans of Mecca, and they persecuted the Muslims so much.
And if you trace back when was the surah was revealed. There is no specific record, but it's like mostly on the 10th year of the Dharma in Mecca.
And they say it was revealed
on the in the year that's called the year of sadness, I'm in prison. And the reason it was called the year of sadness, is because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam lost
his uncle obatala.
And a few weeks after that, five to six weeks, there was another personal loss, which was one of the greatest loss in the life of the parts of Selim, when he lost Khadija of their loved one. And these were the two humans on Earth who supported him after the bounty of Allah subhanaw taala. So the scholar said, nevertheless, so abusive, Siracusa was sent down to the process Helen was revealed. Hesperia What does Leah towards Arabic, has Ria and peslier. This via means because it was the year of sadness. So it would
just take the sadness away from the heart of the rock solid for the great loss that happened to him. And Tesla, because it's the only surah in the Quran. That's a whole, you know, story by itself. The whole story was told, you know, in one surah, so usually storytelling, you know, attracts the attention of people. And this one shala, you know, while we are going through the surah, you know, we stop at certain, you know, scenes, and then we say what's next, inshallah, although all of you know that, because I remember one time I shared this with my students, back in Kuwait in the 90s. And Subhanallah, the way we advertised it in the messages, you know, how, especially how to hype,
the young people, if you say that,
you know, five people will show up. But we said the story of love in the fraud.
And believe me, there was no space intimacy in the two levels.
And everybody knows the stories of panela. But then I would say, and then they met in the room, and they were plotting
what happened next will continue off. So
it was like, Can you just tell us, like, you know, the story. So Pamela, and this is why the story like attracts the attention of people. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala revealed this surah
when it comes to ASVAB, and reserve, which is one of the sciences related to the peran, the reasons of Revelation, there are many, you know, sores in the Koran and many verses in the Quran that were revealed for a reason.
Meaning like Allah subhana wa tada would respond to a question posed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They would challenge him. And it was the Jews, the people of the book at that time, and they used to live in Medina, some people amongst the bacon, the pagans, they went to Medina, because they trusted, you know them as people of the book. And they know that they have a book, and they are literate. And most of the pagans were illiterate. So they went to them and they asked them, they said, like, you know, just tell us something in your books that we can go and ask him
and then they told him this
Go and ask him about Yusuf Ali Salam. And why did he leave? Black can iron which is bloody shame at the time and move to Egypt? If he answers you, if he tells you the story, then he's a Prophet and his revealed to if he can do he's a liar.
So they came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and they asked him the question, inshallah we'll see this inshallah, meaning the interpretation of the verses.
The scholars of the field, they said, There is also another reason for the revelation of the sower, they said the Sahaba came to the Prophet Solomon, they said prophet of Allah, why didn't you tell us like some stories of the people of the past? What happened to them?
And then they said, This is what Allah subhana wa tada revealed. So
now that started the surah inshallah.
And the first thing that I just want to ask you is,
what is the first words of the song?
I live lab raw.
Okay, let me write this.
I hope everybody can see this at the back. Can you hear the back?
I'm gonna write
So for those who can speak Arabic, what is this?
Okay, and this is
I would say this is the translation, right?
Okay. And this is
and this is
perfect. Okay. If I were to ask you this question.
What is this?
Okay, if I like it this way?
What is this?
What is this?
Here's the question. That's the first lesson we should learn before we start se in Sharla.
And this is one shala we're going to suggest you know, Alyssa, like a seminar in phonetics, which are
pertinent to the language. This is b, this is the letter right? And this is bad. That's the sound.
So we have a letter and we have a sound
and there is a difference between both of them.
Okay, now, if I asked you
which comes first
speech or writing
speech, and was the process of them literate or illiterate? What did he learn first?
If I were to ask the Prophet sallallahu wasallam to read this, would he be able to read it? They didn't know how to read and write. Right? Okay, if you have almost half with you now, I just want you to go to certain field which is Surah number 105.
It starts with
What did you change? What didn't say Alif Lam? Meem?
You see what I'm saying? Okay, start also an open source shot. So number 94. How does it start?
So why do we sometimes say Alif Lam mean? And sometimes we say alum who decides this?
Allah subhanho wa Taala and how did we learn this? From the proper Selim, so which comes first speech then
language or writing, right? Okay, how do we explain writing we say ketubah right in Arabic, which means to write and the noun form that is L kita. Okay, and for speech we say, hora, right? And the noun would be something which is read. This is the act of reading, and Koran is
something that's read. That's the literal meaning of it. Okay. Okay. So now, what decides to read Alif Lam mean? This is this is the first molecule on the forearm, that we learned this through the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If anyone learns the Arabic language, and you write to him Alif Lam mean, you will always read it as mean, like
what else read it or do we have
to suit to do the same thing in English we say I live.
How do you do this at the beginning of sorts of bacala?
me right. So Paula at the beginning of the show who say lm, not sure la casa de la at the beginning of Southfield lm tharaka la boca,
who told the Sahaba who were literate to read it lm in one surah and Alif Lam and another surah
Prophet Mohammed Salim although he was unlettered, he doesn't know how to read and write. So this tells you that we have two versions of the Koran Kitab and are on what's the meaning of Qatar, that which is written for on that which is recited already, which comes first, the recitation and this is why every time Jebel Ali Salam would come to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, Salam was so keen to repeat after him why he was afraid to forget.
And who can share with me which surah what Allah subhanaw taala said, led to heartbreak vahini sonica
Sofia Allah, Allah said don't worry, don't repeat after after, after device Lam why in Elena gem Allah for Allah we will combine it in your hearts Don't worry, so no put it aka Fela tensor or Mohammed Don't worry, you will not forget.
That cleared up. So let's go to the floor now. With this background in Sharla, the very beginning Allah Subhana Allah says Alif Lam Wha What does this mean?
Many scholars have observed upon Allah.
They came up with things but there is no authentic hadith that tells What's the meaning of that we call them in our in Arabic or interferon alpha open or lucapa.
Okay, there is no authentic hadith that says, This is what it means. But some people came with their own, you know, they exercise their own discretion and they came up with their own opinions. Some people say if you combine all of them, they will make the grits the name of Allah subhanaw taala there is no authentic hadith talk about this. Some other people say Allah subhana wa Taala is challenging the Arabs. Why? And here we need to stop and again, this is again another thing about the miraculous nature of the Arabic language. Allah subhanho wa Taala used to support every prophet was something that was common at his time, which is we call it but i in the sense of something
extraordinary. We call it Jesus, which is a miracle. Okay, so what was going on at the time of musasa?
Magic, right. So most of his miracles were related to magic what was common at the time of aerosolized
medicine, most of his miracles were related to what was going on at the time of the Salah
poetry mastering the language right. So, Paula, they have fares like you know, today, we have first for what cars
Miss Universe. This is tells you how people you know, certain people today right, but at the time of the problem the pagans of Mecca, their main concern was
language, mastering the language. So suppiler they used to have fears for poets and avoid was held in high esteem, he would be the leader of his tribe, like Lolita. Maria, for example. You know, you all know when you read Surah Al modasa, there are 16 verses about Lolita Memorial, because they sent him to go and come back with a judgement of the forearm to criticize the bra.
So, they used to have fairs where people will come and have a contest like the points and they have like, you know, a place called cause what are they used to have those fairs they have, you know, in Mecca, and Japan a lot of boys would come and recite 400 lines of verse poetry without making the slightest mistake in rhyme, rhythm, grammar, language, anything. And then the winner, his poem will be written in gold and it will be hanging in the Kaaba and this is known in the Arabic literature as an wildcards and wildcard means things that are hanging. So they used to hang it on the cover Why? Just as some sort of honor.
So Allah subhana wa tada wanted to tell this is one opinion of the scholars of the city said Allah subhanaw taala wanted to tell the Arabs if you are masters of the language, and here's exactly the challenge came first stage was, can you make up a Quran like this? It's composed of the same letters that you use in poetry Alif Lam ra Alif Lam? Meem. Hi. Yeah, I saw her meme. Oh,
yeah. See? Oh, ha. And it's funny, like
You know, one time
when people even like, you know, the Arabs, it's not only you know, the non Arabs are willing, you know, understand the classical Arabic And here I'm talking about the classical Arab, not that gyptian dialect or the Moroccan dialect. Somebody came and asked me a question about what you said, like, you know, since you did this and this and so if you said, you know, what are the cars at the time of use of Elisa Lam? I said, Why? They said, What do you say Yara
so there came a car. I said, this is your Arabic. Where are you from?
You said I'm saying it doesn't mean say Yara here. It doesn't mean a car. You know the Arabic word for Katayama. But it doesn't mean sciarra here.
And what was funnier than this? You know, inshallah, we'll come across this inside the surah. Allah subhanaw taala said when the brothers of Yusuf went back to their father and said, what are some minor arcana nectar and it was something like No, do you know the names of use of two brothers? And one of them said yes. I said, Tell me what he said Nikita
I said, How did you do that I said, are semana Akana? still with us? Our brother lected
I said knuckle means to get a measure.
It doesn't mean it's not the name of a person. So it's not amazing you know that the only like that an Arab so don't understand this. It's you know, some Arabs are very creative too.
So Allah subhanaw taala started challenging by saying, make up a Quran like this. And of course, it was very difficult. They can
have you heard about some people who claim Prophethood after the process, Allah, one of them is musala. Give me the last name.
Is this his last name? This is his title. Nobody knows his last name.
So panela because he's a liar. So he deserves that. Right? So So Paula, he came and said, you know what Rosewall hammer will later home and we just put up some words that rhyme with each other and like, people were laughing and I was like, What is this? This is this is the Koran that comes up to me it's like, you know, did you eat you know, like, a big meal before you go to bed?
It's nonsense, like when you try to make sense out of what he's saying. It's nonsense. It's like no, this is the product comes to me. So anyway, Allah subhanaw taala chosen putting makeup on like this and they couldn't and then Allah subhanaw taala took it down. He said that to be actually sort of moved on I said, like makeup, you know, again, fabricated 10 soldiers like the bra and again, they couldn't, so a lot to get down to the minimum which is which a lot of Bukhara Allah Subhana Allah says in a tweet Allah spider says, what a
man is Elena Allah Avi Dena, but to be so.
So just one if you are in doubt, what we have sent down or reveal to our servant meaning Prophet, Mohammed Salim just make up one surah That's what I said. So just one and then the last part I said for a lambda follow sorry, like this is a continuation let's give the charity said what the Shahada acumen doula like you know try to bring all those who will support you you know away or from Allah subhanho wa Taala in quantum saw the pin if you were telling the truth, then Allah subhanaw taala look at the choices for a lambda vital What does love do love negates the past you will not be able to do this in the past while I follow and you will not be able to do this in the future. So what's
Protect yourself save yourself from fire. Look at the challenge and this isn't the product sell.
Let me ask you another question.
If somebody writes a book today, they usually write at the end of the book they start you know the apologetic approach like you know if you find any you know mistakes or any you know shortcomings you know, please email me because in the next edition inshallah, inshallah.
And then sapan Allah, Allah subhana wa tada in the Quran challenged them he said, what I've learned and enjoyed Allah He loaded up 11
the sisters from this is wrong.
Okay, so let's, let's challenge him. He said if this was revealed, you know, if it's coming from another source other than Allah subhanaw taala they would find lots of differences and contradictions and abroad. Can you find any? And some orientalists came and said like, Yeah. Are you familiar with the word orientalist? mostashari people who studied the Quran just to try to find mistakes. I'm going to share some inshallah. inshallah today. To start with somebody came to one of the schools
and one of those who didn't succeed, you know, Alma Hamad Abdullah Mohammed Abdul Rahim Allah. And he said in your book Allah subhana wa Taala says maratona kita beamy Shea, Allah Subhana. Allah says in the Quran, we have left nothing but we offer new guidance in this life. So let's Father has given us guidance and everything that he said. So the Quran tells you everything. He said, Yes. He said, here's the challenge. Can you tell me if I give you now? 10 kilograms of flour. How many loaves of bread would that make?
And my mom said, Hold on.
And he called a baker.
The baker came, he said, okay, answer to this question. Like it'll happen. And if you give him that like, and then he gave him the answer to like, you know, why, why are you bringing a bigger? Why don't you find the answer in the Quran?
It says, the answer is in the fraud. And that's exactly what I did. Is it How come? Is it Allah subhanho wa Taala said, instead of the hedge first, hello, hello Vickery.
Allah tala moon asked the people who are specialized.
If you don't know.
Do you think that I am ashamed? I know everything. And that's what the all that's, that's exactly the assumption of all people. Like, you know, a chef comes asking about everything.
You know, I have a problem with my husband, rather than with my father. You know, there's black magic later me this this is, you know, I have pain in my ankle here.
This way I go.
The SEC doesn't know everything. And this is Apollo. This is the wisdom of Allah subhana wa, tada that
he divided his risk and the word risk Oh, by the way, we always when we hear the word risk, we always think about money.
Right? A lot divided his risk, you know, amongst all people, you know, how many people are engineers here?
That's when I see. Okay, how many brothers are working in as accountants?
Mashallah, I thought they do have positions here. Okay, Mashallah, you see, I'll share a story with you.
One time, I was at home, and where I live in Cairo.
I live in the seventh floor, and all the building. You know, they're all professionals, like people, you know, somebody who works in the cabinet, and somebody who's a physician, somebody who's an engineer, as opposed to all of a sudden, you know, we had a problem with the pipe with a sewage system.
And my son was young.
And the guard, he started calling us like, you know, please come and help.
And then we will all rushed down. And I took my son with me, because I wanted to teach him something.
And they were all standing there. And he's like, you know, the guards are like, you know, do something.
And I said, Wait, I'm gonna get my PhD from upstairs. I just wanted my son to think about this.
And then I said, Did you call because I'm the chairman of the of the building. I said that, did you call the plumber? And he said, Yes. But he said, He's very busy. He's gonna come up for half an hour.
And I said, Okay, I have another doctor, I have another Brahmas number, you know, and I called him. And he said, like, you know, he would be able to come after one hour and a half, is very busy. And, you know, he makes more money than me as a professor at the University. Anyway, so I told my son, Dr. Plummer is busy, he's not going to come down, and we'll be drowning in this building. So like, why don't you do something? Don't you have a PhD?
It's not in plumbing.
This is what about all these people? They all have nice cars, and they are very rich. And I said, but they don't know plumbing.
is what I'm saying. So I wanted to teach him something, you know, because unfortunately, sometimes we look down upon people when it comes to the social status in the community. This is not Islamic at all. The slippers of Bilal are in general, and the Pharaoh of Egypt is in hellfire.
A lot of us descent
and the process has informed us about Vlad in a row. Yeah, we're gonna we're gonna be talking about throw. Yeah, you know, that he's so for black. So this is very important. Why did I say this? What's the relation? You know? It's what I'm talking about. But when this person came to orientalist to ask him, Mohammed Abdullah about this, we have to do Allah subhanaw taala divided specializations and when Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah, Allah Vic, what's the meaning of liquor in the prod? I know you guys study the words and the roots, right? So I'm going to be very peculiar, okay.
So we're going to show the proof that you're Mashallah.
Very good scholars of the future inshallah. So, what's the meaning of the word? That's
Okay? Does it come always in the Quran meaning a reminder. Okay, give me if you said no give me examples from before.
Okay, let me give you another example and you tell me what's the meaning of the word okay? Allah subhanaw taala said we're in hula the guru laka omega so
what's the meaning of victory here?
No, it means an honor. The word victory here means an honor for you and your people but you will be held accountable in front of Allah
the Quran, Allah Allah Hafiz.
This is you know, so number 15 silicon hedge number nine. Verily, or indeed we have sent down Avik are in allowed to have alone and we will preserve it. So what's the meaning of Decker here? That's it, you see what I'm saying? So it doesn't necessarily mean the Quran all the time when it comes to the frog. Okay, so be careful, because you will discover many things. inshallah today and the following theme is inshallah that don't take the literal meaning of the word. When we say I'd have in the Koran. When we say the Koran. Does it mean the same thing every time? No.
Yeah, when a lotta Shrek Bella in a shakeela, Hunan Ali, what's the meaning of volume here? That this is the highest degree of volume in just Okay, so don't take it for literal meaning inshallah. So the reason I'm saying this, again, is because we as a community, Allah subhana wa Taala has created us, we all need each other. And that's what I told my son I said, so when the when the plumber will come now, all of us will give him like, you know, a military study. They're just like, No, doctor, plumber, please take care of us.
What I'm saying because we need him, we need him. And at this point, Allah Subhana. Allah said, What about Roger? Lots of how can I say this in the Quran? We have raised you in rent over each other. He made it in different in the Quran. Why? Because today, I'm on the stage tomorrow, I'm down.
He said, I'm saying you understand what I'm saying. So this his life
the plumber is needed at that point. Okay, but then tomorrow, he sends his son to me at the university. And both me the plumber and the son will go to the dentist. So we all need each other. And this is why the point says an Arabic And that's when but when we're not in, ba ba, ba ba ba, ba people whether they are Bedouins or nomads, they live in a city, you know, they need each other, and they serve each other, whether they are, you know conscious of that or not. We serve each other. So we have to respect each other. And this is what will be land. You know what your loved one was blamed for the fact that he's black, by a buzzer for the lavon Milan went to the processor, Mr.
jasola La Villa ironic to me, oh prophet of Allah, Allah, Allah blamed me for the fact that my mother is black. So the Brazilian, you know, called a brother. I said, Did you do that? He said, Yes, Prophet of Allah. He says in the Quran, pekerja Haley, you still have one of the qualities of the pre Islamic era, the time of ignorance.
He said in an aeration, he said massini or McKenna to Rasul Allah, despite my age, like he was like a forest and he was the head of the tribe. He said, mass, electromechanical, Absalom is not gonna, you know, compliment him.
So what did he do? And that's what we need to learn. Like he lied on the ground. And he said, Bill al, Raji, because then you can put your foot on my face.
And then, you know, Bilal went down and he hugged him and both of them. He said, I just wanted to let you know that I did not create my mother. I did not choose my color. It's Allah subhanaw taala chose this.
So we have to respect each other. And this is what he's trying to teach people.
usually when Allah subhana wa Taala uses, you know those letters at the beginning of the Quran, you will always mention the Quran after that. I'll give you an example right here. Elif lamb raw Tikka to look at Bill mubi these are the verses of the clear book in the envelope of Ireland, we have sent it down as a foreign in Arabic right. So pile up recall what comes after part of
what is a little Maggi? Yes, in
again, reference to the Quran, again because Allah challenged him the
honors composed of these letters Can you make up for unlike this, you are masters of the Arabic language. So this is why Allah subhanaw taala challenge them in that.
Now Allah subhana wa tada says, I live lamb raw tilaka
What's the meaning of
that? And we have this also right? Why didn't we say this? Because we have an Arabic we have had that unhappy and we have tilka we have also Delica right? And Allah subhanaw taala says at the beginning of throat, Al Baqarah, Alif Lam Meem Valley, Calcutta, and here he said, felucca.
Subhana Allah, when I say Heather, it means something close. Right?
But when I say
tilaka it's something faraway. Right. So why did the lots of 100 fallacy tilaka
although the Quran is between our hands and we can hold it.
Honor, yeah, it's the high status of the Quran. It shows how exalted the Quran is, how noble is the status of the Quran because it is the speech of Allah subhanaw taala scholars also said another reason could be the fact that Allah subhana wa Taala word was the Quran before it was refuted the prophets of Salaam fellow homophobe This is another reason they say because you know before it was revealed to the prophet SAW Selim, it was in the preserve tablets Hello, hello my phone. This is the other reason
did Allah subhanaw taala said tilka yet
the word is is the plural of AI and write this down. When the word AI in the front comes, it comes with three meanings. And then you will be put you know we'll I'll put you through the quiz right away inshallah. Okay.
I it means
a sign in the universe.
Like the sun,
like the moon, like the day, like the night, how many times Allah subhanaw taala challenges us in the Quran. And how many times Allah Subhana Allah takes an oath with one of those, you know, big signs, like for example was shamcey wobble, haha, elastic and all by the sun. Right? And it's raised. One calamari is a fella who makes the the moon come during the night to follow the sun during the day that anybody else claimed this other than Allah subhanaw taala. Now when we say who will follow any opponent the Quran is a command from the from Allah Spanner for them to say to the people, right, or say, will, will follow I seek refuge with the
robe of alpha Watson follow.
Daybreak who breaks the day for us, and a lot smarter than the Koran. If Allah subhanaw taala were to make the night an everlasting, who other than Allah subhanaw taala will break the day for you. Think about this. So this is like this is the meaning of the word I this is the first meaning. Okay? Second meaning it's it means a miracle that Allah subhanaw taala would support the prophets and the messengers with when people will deny you know and not accept that they are prophets. Who can give me an example from the problem.
The word is used in the sense of a miracle
I have a gift for the right answer Give me the word I in the surah Give me the word AI itself so that we can know that this is
It's not a paper it's a candy. Okay.
I don't follow the system of Omar okay.
So, he decided I didn't a lie for our
home. This is sort of number right? Allah Subhana. Allah sent with was the Prophet.
Musa alayhis, salam to the people of
Israel, right. Nine, a, what's the meaning of the word I hate? Is it verse or sign?
It's It's neither, right? It's America. Right? So it doesn't mean a verse. It doesn't mean
a sign it means America who can give me just two examples of the desire to example.
The Nine miracles that Allah subhanaw taala supported most against the people who delight him. Yes. So at the back
Can anybody Just tell me what you say?
The frogs? Mashallah, yes. But
the staff turning into a snake and this is very famous, right? Let's, let's stop here because we all know this one, right? When Allah subhanaw taala asked him to throw his rod or stuff into the ground, he said, like, take it back. So when he throw it on the ground, what happened? It turned into a snake. And so kind of the tough mission was, he had to hold it from the side of the head, not the tail. So imagine yourself now and I just want you to visualize this, okay? Like, there is a snake and you go to the snake, and you just hold it from the mouth. And then when you hold it, what happens? You know, it turns back into around again or stuff again, this this was a miracle,
something that they can see. Right? Okay, what about the water the last month Allah will turn blood into the water every time they will try to use the water right? at them. Right? So there, there are nine miracles, this is the second meaning, okay, so with this, I had translate the word I had, instead of the number, we can say science we can say, versus we have to say, Morocco. And of course, Americans assigned for the people, but we have to understand the deeper meaning. Okay. Now, the third meaning of the word I or is is the verse that you see in the frog. Okay, what is the meaning here, then? tilka tokita.
Verse, perfect. That's the third meaning. Okay, please go to keytab. And maybe we'll stop at the word Calcutta. And we'll go back. This is where we started, right? We said, what comes first? writing or
speaking? speech, right. So how was the Koran preserved? How was the Quran preserved? The brand was preserved in two ways. Okay, a written form. That's the foreign now hands. And
that would be the word.
recitation, right? Which we call
to our camera. Okay.
How do they call this in English? They say.
We said the written form and
the oral tradition, that's exactly what they say, okay, the oral tradition. So now, at the time of the prophet SAW, Selim, there were people around the processor, who would literally write, they would write down the revelation after it comes to the facility, they would write it down on whatever was handy at that time, like, you know, a piece of cloth, you know, a rock, whatever. And then the need to collect the for all in one volume at the lifetime of the process, and there was no need, why? Because the other form of preservation was there, which is the Quran was memorized by hundreds of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Okay. And during the Battle of leiomyoma, at
the time of
the Allahu Allah, you know, 70 people amongst the memorizers were killed.
And Suppan Allah, Omar De La Hoya, and before that, he came to abubaker many times and he said, Why don't we, you know, combine the front and collected in one volume. And he said, the prophet didn't do this. And I wouldn't do it. Unless Apollo when this happened, and he found out that the oral tradition might end there. So what would happen, the Quran would be lost. So this is why abubaker the lion decided to have a committee that was chaired by dignitaries, and they sat down and there is a nice story here. They sat down and they combine the Quran into one volume and SubhanAllah. What what they did is, they said, We will not write down a verse, unless we get, you know, a testimony
from to memorizers to memorize us will confirm the verse.
And somehow they came across one verse that they found no one except one Sahabi. And his name is Jose, Allah Subhana. Allah is a very nice story about Hosea. One time, the professor Selim, you know, borrowed some money from a Jew. And then the Jew came to claim his money back. And the problem already has already paid him.
And then when the man came, and he said profitable, you know, he asked me to give him the money back said, like, I have already paid you. He said, No. And then Jose mo was sitting there. And he's like, the problems that I have paid you and I said, No.
And then the person said, who would justify that I paid that man, and because I said, We profitable.
And then after the man, the man kept silent, because he really, you know, took the money. So
After the problem asked because a man said, Did you see me giving him the money? And that was a message no prophet of Allah said, How come that it is justified, is a prophet of Allah, the revelation will come to you and I can hear nothing. And I followed you, and I followed the revelation that will come to you, would I be law you and do not believe you when it comes to like, you know, a number of like a few Durham's or dinars. In the process, lm said something he said she had it was ima, actually, meaning that you can take the testimony of was a man and it's enough You don't have to have another one with him. And Subhanallah that was the only verse that was a
then Allah subhana wa Tada.
So Allah subhanaw taala preserved the Koran in two ways. We said the written form and the oral tradition. So when it comes to the oral tradition, we all know that the poor are never cease to be memorized by hundreds of people today, how many people do we have?
Millions, right? What?
Just want to make a comment here?
People memorize the words of the Prophet
except for those whom Allah, Allah have mercy on, right? And how many of us memorize the Quran without knowing Arabic? How many?
Lots of people, right? And then if you stop the person is like, you know, do you know what you're reciting?
They say no. So what is the reason for memorizing the Francella you will get the reward for memorizing the Quran. But the question is, when Allah Subhana, Allah says, will also be in
And the messenger says, Oh Allah, my people have abandoned the frog. Remember, him or him Allah said, the abandonment of the Koran is five degrees, the least of which is to abandon the reading.
understanding the third, reflection, the fourth, applying
the fifth making tower using it to make out with others, where are we from the front?
I remember one time, you know when the cartoons were, you know, published. And we had like a big conference. And I had 6000 people sitting in front of me.
And unfortunately, I'm not saying they are not. I'm not saying they are non Arabs, they are Arabs.
Like, why are you coming today? And he was like, No, we're coming to support to support the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. I said, Do you love him? They said, Yes. I said, show it for your action. I said, on my way here to come to the speech, I saw one of the young people like smoking, would you like to meet the professor and while smoking? Is this the way you're coming to support the professor. And then I said, Now I'm going to recite a surah that one law he I can tell for sure that all of you memorize, and I was addressing 6000 people,
but I will challenge you, I dare you to give me the meaning and your arms.
And then I started to do this, I think the sort of one idea to Baba, Furthermore, the father had pada and I stopped in the middle of Jerusalem saying this is not Chinese.
But What's the idea?
That was the answer.
And you're coming to support the Prophet. So the Quran was revealed, to be
understood, reflected upon, acted upon making Tao using it. This is why the Quran is revealed.
So Allah subhanaw taala said tilka to look it up, and maybe we have to stop at the word that will be sometimes when it comes in the Koran, it means it has just one connotation, but other times it has two collocations It has two connotations, meaning it has two embedded meanings. It means that the Quran is a very clear book, the word movie means clear, simple. It's not for the shoe only to read and understand. It's not only for the shoe to apply. It's for every single person who believes in the message of the Quran and Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah. It's very simple. It's for everyone. It's very clear itself. And if you don't understand, ask the people with knowledge.
Second, it means it's not only clear in itself, it has a function. It clarifies to people what does it clarify?
What does it clarify?
Okay, fall understandings and we also say the truth from the false hood. What's evil
from what is good? See, that's that's the problem that was all about there's there's gender
The end and there is gentleman shala for all of us, okay. So, there are two ways right and you decide and this one shall I will invite you to
join our eternal journey inshallah coming soon inshallah.
This is a commercial
so Allah subhana wa tada stilling are still chaotic, and will be in these are the verses of the clear book in itself. And yet it clarifies, you know, to the people the purpose of their life, why they are here, okay? In einzelner hope you're all saying in that in those two words by the way, in that means, in, in which is a letter of confirmation, and then na, which means we have indeed we the word in by itself is indeed we and then under level again another another pronoun that we have to use an Arabic we say, we have sent it down the word and the noun itself is a sentence
is what I'm saying. And this is the difference between the Arabic language and the English language. So as if Allah subhanaw taala if I translated, it would be, indeed, we, we have sent down
a Quran in Arabic.
And we have many questions here to start with is why would Allah Subhana Allah say we received this question now more from the Muslims
than the other like the non Muslims? Why would Allah subhanaw taala say we now we use the Royal we write the king or the queen when they want to come with a decree and talking you know, on behalf of the people, even the president you would say we it's out of majesty. It's a single entity, but yet it's out of majesty when Alice Pecola says we Okay, and checklist only came out of him. Allah said, When Allah subhana wa tada uses we in the Quran
What does it signify? It signifies the fact that Allah subhanaw taala does whatever he does through the angels. Because if I were to ask you
there's a lot of panels that I have to come down to the earth literally, with his essence to do things.
Okay, now I want you to clarify this confusion to me then. Allah subhanaw taala says insalata waka so Allah Allah, either.
When the soul of the person when the Spirit comes to the collarbones here, right, the person is dying. And last night, I said to Sheena he didn't turn the room, you're looking at him? Why not? Noah Perabo, la me. Allah said we are closer to him than you. What's the meaning of we hear
the angels of their a lack of months the angel of this is not doesn't mean we that Allah subhanaw taala will come down. Okay, and so that Allah subhanaw taala says,
whatever the holla funnel is,
to a suicide will be enough. So we have created men, and we know what goes on in his mind, right? Why not? You know uporabo II mean, how very worried we're closer to him than the juggler vein.
is Allah subhanaw taala here, because when you ask people, where's the law, they're gonna say Allah is everywhere.
Is that right? Yes or no? How can you answer this? I'm saying yes or no, don't challenge me. I'm gonna challenge you.
I am saying yes and no. Okay. And I will answer this until after the break.
