This is the latest Tafseer of Surah Yusuf, presented by Sheikh Sajid Umar with Kalemah Dubai during 2013.
The outline of the course was structured based on an intensive weekend programme and tweaked to be covered in just a few hours, nonetheless the Tafseer of Surah Yusuf has many thought provoking lessons -in the hundreds- that apply to us in this century
The Tafseer of Surah Yusuf highlights magnanimous lessons derived and extracted from the lives of Yusuf (AS), Ya’coob(as), the Brothers of Yusuf, and other characters in the Best of all Narrations. Journey through the life of a young boy thrown into a well, abducted and sold into slavery and then going on to become the Minister of Egypt.
Part 4 focuses on Ayah 1 and Ayah 2 of Surah Yusuf
Then we come to
tilaka to keytab l will be in
Arabi en la la caja de Lune we're going to take some time here, it's gonna be a bit slow, it's gonna be a bit slow but I want you to get a feel of what you read in some of the books have seen before we dive into what we promised to be the greater part of this course and that is
that is I still can't hear you. The camera can't hear you
the double the double
the dam broke right.
Now, so, we will sort of take time off this is but this is to give you the field This is to give you the field. So at least you have some experience of what exists in the Arabic text and then inshallah the greater part will be the WR and will flow much quicker. So please concentrate and keep yourself energized and inshallah there'll be much benefit be delighted Allah subhanho wa Taala after the fla says, till till keytab Lb Do we have the ayah or the translation on board? Yes we do. By verily we have sent it down as an Arabic Quran Allah subhanho wa Taala Li says tilaka
Let's ponder over this word Tikka. tilka is from asthma Alicia, for those who study the Arabic language
and in the English language we call a smell a Shara. What undemonstrative now undemonstrative. Now.
So, in the Arabic language we say have a heavy hula, hula
tilaka valleca. These are all pointing nouns they are demonstrating Allah subhana wa Jalla refers to his is as tilka because this is the feminine form and if it is feminine, that's fine. But the question is, why did Allah say tilaka and not have he tilaka in the Arabic language refers to something far away?
Have he refers to something near?
It is close to us or far away? We have them close. It's been revealed to you, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is close to him and he is relating to the revelation. So this is where the double comes in. Why did Allah say tilaka and not happy?
This is the double.
And the scholars say Rahmatullah Allah him
that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah
says, tilka to teach us that to score on has come from a low hanging fruit,
which is distant to you. It's been revealed from Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's not the statement of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam it's not there. We're saying, This is from him. No, it's from a lovely mushroom. Not had he tilaka so panela you see how the double burner works? Did Allah tell us the Quran is from Allah?
Did he tell us in clear words? No, but he still told us how by saying tilaka but what was the meaning locked behind? tilka which we've just unlocked now.
That this Quran is from afar from Allah.
It was revealed from a lofty place from an elevated place.
It's not from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Can you see how the Qureshi have been refuted? In just one word? kilka.
What do you think of this?
Well, what if I told you this is how it is with every word in the Quran? How many lives will you need to unlock the secrets? If you set with every word in the Quran?
Someone says How can you refute those who say the Quran is from Mohammed? salallahu alayhi wasallam we say using the word tilka. Say how can you use the word tilka demonstrated now? So yes, but Allah said
he didn't say he is in Surah Baqarah. He said Valley ko keytab. He didn't say has l keytab. This is a book in which there is no doubt he said that he can Mallika points to something again, which is far away.
When you ponder, you extrapolate and deduce this amazing lesson that this Quran is not from Muhammad bell. Instead it's been revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So you've just refuted those who say it's from Mohammed in one word.
Amazing. Right? Amazing. This is the double. You think you're amazing. Now wait, we coming? becoming more to come insha Allah is more to come with me later who watched the social
lesson from Surah Yusuf that's unlike the sociology lesson from Surah Yusuf, the small clip that's on YouTube from one of my courses in the UK. How did you feel about that? That's the double book, but we'll get to that inshallah. If you haven't watched it, don't go search for it today.
I'll tell it to you tomorrow. Okay, don't search for it. today. By Allah Subhana. Allah Allah says, Allah. He describes the Quran as
Verse mubin, is from the qualities of the Quran.
We learn from this ayah that from the qualities of the Quran is that the Quran is clear. And other is Allah subhana wa The MSE silica is Al Kitab al Hakim?
What does hackey mean?
wisdom wise, not in this area.
That's why I never ever talked about the Quran before going to the to see.
And to who comes after the field, by the way, there's no contradiction. Many people say well look, how can I practice the double? If we should never talk about the Quran with no knowledge we say you should never talk about the Quran was no knowledge. Yes.
understand the Quran based on knowledge? Yes, based on the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Yes, but that book is for you. Allah said Leah, why did he not? So that they may ponder over it as this is for you to do but you can only ponder over the eye when you understand the ayah How do you understand the ayah by going to the books of
the scholars say Hakeem here doesn't mean wise. It means differentiator between truthfulness and falsehood. When a hacker it's the referee. it differentiates between truthfulness and falsehood. So yes, the Quran is the farrakhan is the differentiator and also the Quran has been referred to as farrakhan. So the Quran has many descriptions, from his descriptions, his movie, and where do we understand this description from this is where are you so by Allah subhana wa tada then says, in the law, we have revealed it to you. You see, Allah says, tilaka is, is comes from a high place from a lofty place, not from a close place from a fireplace that Allah says in that answer. Now, we have
reviewed it. You see how this proves the Wu understood from tilka classes we have revealed that it's not from you, Mohammed, we have revealed it by Allah says in that, which is we translate as we translators, we now does this mean, a trinity? Will it ever be law? No, no, some of the disbelievers they say the concept of Trinity is present in the Quran, where Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in referring to we, this way refers to the Trinity.
And this is incorrect.
It doesn't refer to a trinity. Rather it refers to the Royal we,
which is a concept in the English language. The concept of the Royal we when the Queen of England speaks, what does she say we he's talking about herself. This is the Royal we and some people that's how they talk. They are a great characters or a type type A characters, right? They go You see when we do this, this is how we do it. But you mean when you do it.
By so this refers to the Royal we this is refer to the Royal we and this is a fatwa. This has been discussed by the scholars by the legendary adema in Saudi Arabia, the senior scholars, and they have a fatwa about this, as is in their fourth Volume, page 143, that the V here refers to the Royal V and not the Trinity, then Allah subhanahu the NSA is an zelner who we have revealed it to you. And this explains that the Quran comes from a lofty fireplace. And it also teaches us einzelner who the divine nature of the Quran, because it's from Allah subhanho attack.
So allies making manifest the reality of the score and before he discusses how to use and tie this, to what we said was the reason of Revelation, when they tried to test the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about him actually being a prophet, and test him whether he actually receives revelation, he actually receives revelation. So we see here, Allah saying in the hands of now, we've established it's not from Mohammed, and we telling you that we've revealed it, and that it's divine because Allah subhanho wa Taala is divine. So Allah subhanho wa Taala dispels their allegations, dispels their allegations.
For sure the score is not from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's from Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is from the science they are the signs, like for example, Allah subhana wa Jalla admonishes His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in his book. Now which person say something from themselves and they scold themselves as they speak.
Does it make sense? No. So these are also signs that the Quran is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is a clear refutation of the porridge, and a clear refutation of the orientalists and the enemies of Islam who today strive to write both in and falsehood to try and shift the Muslims who are weak in knowledge and infiltrate their minds and plant doubts. So they start doubting things, they start doubting things, this is refutation. And Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah knows best, then Allah subhana wa jal essays or an RV or an Airbnb Do we have one of those laser lights with us?
That I cannot not to point that your eyes, no to point at the board.
Normally the children when they get these lights, they play with each other.
Allah subhanahu adenosine scuro and then an obeah. So lies further making clear the Quran further making clear the Quran that Listen, this Quran is not from Mohammed, this Quran is from far away. This Quran is from Allah subhanho wa Taala this Quran is divine and listen further. It's an Arabic Quran
that we speaking to you in your language. So understand. Just now, when I asked the question, and they were confusing answers, I said, should I tell you in Chinese, maybe you speak Chinese and I'm speaking English. Right? You're not understanding Allah subhanho wa Taala as in what is wrong with you? This is an Arabic Quran. This is in your language, Angela, who Quran and Arabic? What do you have doubts about? Why are you calling him a liar and the magician and doubting his message and attributing the message to him? Why is in your language alone so that you can understand?
When you live the IOU appreciated more. It's amazing, isn't it when you try and put yourself at the place where it was revealed, right? So Allah say she said Arabic Quran and the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala called the Quran and Arabic Quran we have lessons that we can deduce from this from them, number one, number one, that our translation of the Quran is not called the Quran, but it's called the translation of the Quran.
When you hand the translation of the Quran to somebody don't say I'm giving you the Quran, make it clear, you've given him the translation of the Quran, but if the Quran is mentioned, and then the translation happens, explain to them that the Arabic is the Quran and the English is not because the Arabic is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and preserved and the English is the work of man.
That's why when people try to refute Islam based on their knowledge of translations, that's an academic flaw in and of itself.
Because you have based your ideology of the work of man, which is prone to error and mistake, Is this clear? Is this clear? This is the first point point number two for an RV and what do we learn from this? That the Arabic Tafseer of the Quran is not called Quran, but it's called the Tafseer of the Quran.
And the benefit of this is understanding that the laws of physics pertaining to the Quran such as you being in a state of ablution, when you touch the Koran, and such that you be in a state of ritual purity, when you recite the Quran, these apply to what the Quran itself not an English translation of the Quran, and not the Tafseer
of the Quran have we differentiated? Allah says Allah and and Arabi yet it's an Arabic Quran, the Quran
and this is clear, or this point is substantiated in many places of the Quran that it's an Arabic Quran, such as in Surah is 37 to the Baja Ayah 113 pseudotumor ayah 28 Surah Surah Ayah three, Allah
12 many places Allah subhanahu Allah refers to the Quran as an Arabic Quran. But there's a question that begs to be asked. And that is, are all the words in the Quran Arabic?
This question begs to be asked Allah subhanho wa Taala called the Quran described it as an Arabic Quran. But are all the words in the Quran, Arabic and this is a point of discussion between the scholars of Sudan and the scholars of Al Quran.
discuss this. There are three
views about this. And before we discuss the views, let's discuss what all the scholars agree to first, right? All the scholars agree that they are non Arabic proper nouns in the Quran
like Ibrahim, like who would like no
these are not Arabic names.
So they agree that yes, they are
non Arabic proper nouns in the Quran. Point number one point number two, they agree that they are no man Arabic sentences in the Quran. There is not one ayah in its totality that is not
Arabic. Is this clear?
trying out different languages Yanni.
Is this clear?
They agree. There are no non Arabic sentences in the Quran. And they agree that they are non Arabic, proper nouns in the Quran. But they disagree as to other words in the Quran, meaning the non proper nouns are the other words in the Quran, which don't fall under the category of being a proper noun, that an Arabic so there is a statement of our best from the Allahu Akbar, which talks about certain words being Syriac.
And certain words coming from other languages like the habashi language and so on and so forth, such as this is steinbruck these words in the Quran, right? So this is where the debate is that even a bass he says that these words exist. So a group of scholars said yes, they are non Arabic words in the Quran.
And a group of scholars said no, they can't be because Allah said it's an Arabic Quran.
And then comes the third view. And this is the preferred view. And this is the middle view. And that is that
there are words that originally were not Arabic that exists in the Quran. But the Arabs adopted those words into the Arabic language and they were aerobicized and given Arabic letters, and pronounced in the Arabic way, and were considered the Arabic language before the Quran was revealed, and the Quran was revealed in the Arabic language that the Quran spoke. So these words were in the Quran. Is this clear? Originally, they were from other languages, but they were emphasized they became Arabic words, and were used by the Quraysh in their poetry, in their speech, in their trainings in their dealings, before the Quran was revealed. And when the Quran was revealed, these
words were used, so this doesn't contradict the Quran being
an Arabic Quran is clear.
when I ask Is this clear? I've understood if the silence it means yes, I Mashallah, as a teacher I've benefited this from you travel to different countries. If you go to London, you say Is this clear? Yulia row you might fall off your chair? Because everybody answers yes. Mashallah. But if you come to Dubai, now we know if you ask, is it clear everybody keeps quiet?
So that means yes, I've understood Alhamdulillah that this is the way of thinking here or this is the meaning of the word. This is what people understand when you say Is this clear?
Is this clear? Oh, Mashallah, you've changed now now You're confusing me.
by you. So they say that there's no contradiction. There is no it is an Arabic Quran and the Quran we use these words because it was aerobicized before revelation. However, we can tackle this argument from a different angle from a different angle and we can say barakallahu Zico, that if I write an English article, and in that article I use one word or one sentence that's not English for example, I write sailor v. For example, which is French for
that's life, isn't it? So I write my article and I have one word we say sailor v. Will you call this article a French article?
You will call it an English article still not so. So even if even if these words were not considered Arabic, they mentioned in the Quran is
minimal. Minimal it doesn't change the fact that the Quran is an Arabic Quran Is this clear? Is this clear Shia five that she agrees there by
Okay, let's move on.
Let's move on. How are we finding it thus far? Are we following? Do we need a break? Yes, you need a break. You're not leaving here, even if I give you a break.
Who needs a break from the Quran?
Really? Do you think you need a break from the Quran just was man of the Allahu Allah, he would read and read and read and read and he would cry, and people would think he's going to die from crying, or he's going to make himself sick and they say enough, but like this, man,
you don't have to go to this extent, you've read enough. And he would say, he would say that if you really understood the Quran, you would forget this word called enough. It's never enough. And he would continue. And he would continue we know from the cell of those who would, who would complete a must have a night they would read vegeto of Asia. And through the night they complete the Quran, stories of Abu hanifa to Lai la Michelle, very much
of this practice being prevalent and present, there's some people who are walking in late those who came late.
a lot of stuff, a lot of us that
the gold was distributed and you missed your distribution, but inshallah there is other gold that you will get inshallah, but as they say, Allah, Allah who lay, the one who is absent doesn't have a representative call us. Right? In the Arabic language, there's a saying of same for the 11 meaning
the sun has caused the milk to evaporate, you lost your chance the milk was there, you should have come to drink it. If you didn't drink it, it's gone. You've lost your chance. I'm just saying this or tomorrow, you all here on time inshallah. inshallah. Bye.
What are we saying?
I was telling the brothers in the UK, that thinking happens in something known as the prefrontal cortex of the brain. And the prefrontal cortex is a very small part of the brain. But that's the place where life thinking happens.
And you can only take a few thoughts if you add another thought. So one thought is going to fall off the stage. So now I was speaking about something else, every everything else fell off, I need to try and bring them back on the stage and remember what I was telling you,
but you can help me.
What are we talking about? before that?
Before that, I said, we're talking about Arabic names in the Quran. So is that clear? If I write an English article with one word that has a French word or the Spanish word in it, does this change the reality of the article? No, it's still an Arabic Quran, even if shouldn't do so. Even if we say these words in the Quran, we set the correct view is that these words were aerobicized before the revelation of the Quran. So there's no problem. But even if someone came up with a discussion tomorrow and said so in this way, steinbruck and all these words when an Arabic was when the Quran was revealed, we say it doesn't matter. These are minimal words in the Quran. It doesn't affect the
Arabic nature of the Quran. Is this clear?
Let's have a break. But that break is in a class discussion. How's that?
By class discussion?
Allah subhanho wa Taala says the Quran is an Arabic Quran. And Allah subhanho wa Taala
says Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to all of mankind not just to the Arabs.
Right? You go to university tomorrow.
And you are asked this question that you say Islam wasn't for Israel, meaning like blue Israel. The profits are sent to them. Islam Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to everybody
but the Quran Allah says that Arabic Quran
how do we respond to this? We need the microphones roaming now. Please.
Bye bye, who's going to participate? I want somebody who
buy uncle here in the middle
but keep your discussion short and sweet.
Don't give me a story because we're discussing the story. If you give me your story, we won't finish this story. Short and sweet. Pipe okay. Uncle is saying that we respond to this particular discussion by saying but even the Bible was in Aramaic and then translated into other languages, right? Is this a good response? Yes or no? Who says the who doesn't agree with uncle's response?
Who doesn't agree by Is there a microphone for the sisters but i can i can only see hands but this light obviously blocks the view and Mashallah, they are far back Alhamdulillah This is good. This is good. Mashallah, it's good to have Islamic environments practiced in Islamic
worship. This is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So exactly located to our brothers here at Canada for implementing Suman zacuto Hara.
What's up sorry sisters as this is happening so that we don't waste time who doesn't agree with Uncle He anchors discussion here.
So our brother says that no this is not a good response because that is what the Torah doesn't deal with the Quran is what he said.
Why was it a problem with those books? What was the problem?
We've established that the Quran is an Arabic Quran.
And we know that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not only sent to the Arabs, he was sent as a mercy to mankind. So how do we reconcile between the Quran being an Arabic Quran, but the message of Islam being a universal message?
The what we've heard thus far doesn't deal with what we're talking about.
Uncle said, we respond to that saying it doesn't matter if it's an Arabic Quran. The other books were in their own languages as well. But how do we respond to that? We've said this is not a good response type over there.
So we say there is no universal language. So there is no except sign language for shopping for you.
Mashallah, so there is no universal language. So it had to give me a stronger discussion here. That proves that the message is universal. The message is universal. And how do you respond to Uncle Uncle said we say that those books were revealed. So you agree with uncle's response? Do you agree with it?
How do we respond to Uncle before we deal with our thing uncle said, we respond by saying that those books were revealed in Arabic, for example, but how do we respond to that particular debate each other? debate each other? How do we respond to that view? By bringing the microphone here, over here?
How do we respond to that view?
The Arabic language has been preserved till now. So this is the sign that it's universal. Is this your response to anchor?
This is a response to what? What are you responding to?
Is this a new disk? Oh, this is why it's universal. So all right. How do you respond? Do you agree with uncle's response? Uncle said, we respond by saying it doesn't matter if the Quran was labeled in Arabic, other books were reviewed in Aramaic. Is this a good response? Do you agree? You don't agree? How do you respond to him? In our in light of our discussion, in light of our discussion, you don't agree that this is a good response, because this the missionary can refute this argument. Or we can he can refute this argument. What can the missionary say to Uncle Uncle says your books was revealed in Aramaic? Right?
You can be refuted, how can you be refuted? The missionary will say yes, because they were sent to binaries, right. And this is what we're telling you Islam was sent to the Arabs. That's why it was in.
So you've defeated yourself. This is not a good discussion. This is not a good discussion. So how can we respond? What is the most appropriate response looking at the way Islam was presented?
That can respond to this message that Islam is truly a universal religion, even though it came down in the Arabic language, our sister said, there is no universal language. So this cannot be used as an argument. Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps, but it hasn't proven that it's a universal religion. Something we all should know from this era.
We should put up our hand before we speak. We must put up our hand before we speak, so that that's a form of justice to those who also have the answers but haven't spoken. Okay. Do we agree?
Salma, do you agree with that?
He didn't follow by the brothers want a summarized version of what you said. Because they didn't pick up what you said.
We've established is that out of the Quran? Yes.
Yes, yes. How does this prove that Islam is a universal religion?
Does it okay by for the purposes of time, for the purposes of time Mashallah so many hands up. Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye Bismillah I don't look if I don't pick us up because I don't like I like all of these by really, really? But you know, sometimes I think like I know, one of the uncle's here. He kept me very busy during the fiscal finance course. So he's done his coat of asking questions.
Because we highlighted anchor Let's give him a chance to speak go ahead and go
We're gonna hear here in the fourth row. Yes yes
sudo facilities give us the translation Yeah. So the facilities Vinny is
Hello Jana Khurana Jamia La Casa La La Silla Jaya to
say brothers, you're not answering the question. This does not answer the question.
The question is, is Islam a universal religion or not? The Quran is in the Arabic language.
You are visited by a non Muslim? And they tell you how can you say Islam is a universal religion? The teachings of Islam is in the Arabic language. Allah has said we've revealed it to you and Arabic Quran so you can understand. We don't speak Arabic. How can Islam be a universal religion?
This is the question. Is this clear? By let me give you the response. Very simple. It's very simple. It's very simple. The response is by looking at the data of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Didn't he come with the message? He did. How did he present the message?
Did he not write letters to Kings of other nations? Did he not?
So if you if you accept that Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with an Arabic Quran you have to accept that he also gave the Dawa to to have Basha to the other regions which were not Arab regions that are went to them to accept the message of Islam.
