Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
My mother who want to slowly, slowly heal Kareem I'm Albert feroza Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, rubbish heraclius Audrey were silly emri Dr. melissani of cohoon Kohli probenecid nerima a lot of students are asking about how to take notes. So we'll just go over this presentation quickly to see what the best and most effective way could be for you to take notes, these are only suggestions and the experience that we have gained over the past few years in teaching the course and inshallah they will help you. I would also like all of you to show your juice to each other, so that other people can benefit from the way that you have taken notes.
So the first thing in the class is the word to word translation. So what I want you to do is that you mark the translation with a pencil. I told you the other day as well, if there are multiple translations mark, a particular one that has been said, with a pencil. And if any other word has been given any new translation has been given that you also make sure that you write it down.
Secondly, you will see that lots of new words will be coming up.
And there's some words that when you read them, you get them right away, isn't, you get them right away, for example, Okita, we didn't read it in sort of confetti. But when you read it, it was easy.
To some words are very easy. Other words will be completely new to you.
So what I want you to do is that you can mark the translation, not the actual Arabic word, but only the translation with a highlighter. Why? Because when you're memorizing the lesson, those words will stick out more, they will catch your eye more, and inshallah you'll be able to memorize them better.
And also, once you have memorized that essence, let's say you open up your juice to review, then those words again, will catch your sight.
So this will inshallah help you a lot that highlights the translation of the difficult words of the new words.
And as for the notes, you should write them on the blank page that is provided in the juice, right?
So first of all, write the notes on the blank page, it's highly recommended that you do not use a separate notebook. Do not use a separate notebook. Why?
Because if you take your notes in a separate notebook, and the Quran is not open in front of you,
how are we going to follow along the lesson.
And also, sometimes, if you're reviewing the notes later on what's going to happen if you don't see the Arabic in front of you? How can you make the connection between the notes and the Arabic. And also, eventually, by the end of the course, you will have a set of 30 jokes. And you will probably have a set of 30 notebooks. That's a lot.
So think long term.
And try to take your notes in bridges. if let's say the space is less than you can use posted,
right, use additional papers or inserts that you can put in the middle.
So do not use a separate notebook. And also one more thing Do not write around the Arabic.
Okay, meaning do not write around the translation many times to go take the notes around the Arabic, it makes it very messy. And also sometimes because the face has limited, the space is very limited, your notes will also be limited. But what you can do is let's say just write the root letters, no more than the root letters, only the root letters by the word. This way, when you're reviewing the root letters, all you have to do is look at the translation page and all the letters, you can see them there.
So you can write only the root letters around the Arabic but do not take the explanation over there Do not write the singular form over there. Do not write any other notes on the translation page. Keep that as the translation page only. Okay.
Another thing that you could do is that you could divide the blank page into half vertically. Why? Because many times we have to write you know across a page horizontally, but it's very big. It's very wide. If the page is very white, you know, sometimes we start writing in lines that are not straight, isn't it. And sometimes, you know, it's possible that you write a sentence that takes only half a page and the rest half is lost.
So what you could do is divide the page into half vertically. This way you can put more notes on one page.
And also write the explanation on the blank page adjacent to the Arabic text.
So for example, if a word is in the first line of the Arabic on the Arabic page, don't write the meaning of that word all the way at the bottom of the deck.
The closer it is to each other, the easier it will be for you to review, to check your notes, to revise your notes, what to write,
there's so much information what to write Exactly.
First of all, you should write through letters. They are very, very important. Root letters are very important right now you may see other random letters why they're so important, but eventually inshallah when we study the root letters in detail, and as your vocabulary of the Quran will increase, you will find the benefit of writing letters, or if knowing the roots.
So first of all right through letters. Secondly, write the type of the word for example, sometimes I tell you, this word is a verb. Yesterday we went over, the first few is a sort of bucket and I told you about some words that were verbs, and another word that was unknown.
So for some words, I'm going to tell you other words, I'm not going to tell you what type of word it is. inshallah, eventually I will tell you right now, I cannot bombard you with information.
So right, the type of the word is what? Why write that?
Why should you write them?
It will be easier for you to understand the word when you understand the word than memorizing the translation will also be easy.
If you don't understand the word memorization will be very difficult. Okay? So right, the type of the word as well. For example, if the word is a noun, if it's a verb, sometimes, you know the word is a description. It's an adjective. For example, in our with a benign human issue, a final gene, I told you about gene is the quality, it is a characteristic of a shaper.
So write these things as well.
Another thing that you should write is the origin of the word or other related words that are done.
For Rob, I told you, it's from Robert URI book. Right? I told you about, Robert. All
right. So you should write all these words as well.
If you're slowing your Arabic writing, or if you find it difficult to write in Arabic, for now, write the transliteration.
And later on, find out somebody in your group who writes the Arabic words. And you can write those words down from there.
But initially, you are allowed to write in transliteration, meaning write the Arabic word in English, but don't do that all the way till the end of the course.
Do it just right now.
Another thing that you should write is the definition.
Sometimes I give you the definition of the word for example, for him.
For him, I told you that it is dimension, the most perfect qualities of someone who is praiseworthy. So that is a definition. I want you to write the definition as well.
And then sometimes, a Hardee's has mentioned, or a verse has mentioned, can you actually write the entire Hadees at that time? Can you write the entire AI at that time? No, you can't. So if you write just just just the main point of that is that Hadees, that is sufficient. And you can also write the reference.
So for example, instead of writing the entire Hadees, that I mentioned to you about the importance of Bukhara, you could have just written according to Heidi's and Muslim. So total dakara is
that's just one line, one sentence.
So make your notes short, precise. And make sure that you write the references.
And if you miss anything, then you can always ask as many people that come to me after class, just to get the references, you're more than welcome to do that. Everybody is welcome.
So is it clear enough? What to take? What should I
ask for your homework? I've been telling you about this. The rest to make it more to know, your homework is first of all, to memorize the word tour translation of that day's lesson.
So your homework is to memorize the word to a translation. And you have to do it at least seven times. And this is an Amana on you from me.
What does anybody know?
Something that is interesting to you. And what do you have to do?
You have to do it, you have to fulfill it. Right? So similarly, I'm putting this a minute on you that you have to read your lesson seven times. It's possible that you say I know these verses, what's the big deal? But believe me, you will realize the benefits later on.
I remember when I did the course my group in charge who was so strict, every single day, in the group time she would ask, did you do it seven times or not? Did you do it seven times or not? And out of that fear that you would ask? And I don't want to say no, we will do it. And 100 electrical now. I remember the translation
Because I did it seven times,
sometimes it will do it 10 times.
So even if you know the translation, you think it's very easy, just a few words. And you think, oh, I'll just remember learn the difficult words. And that's it. No, go over the entire translation. Seven times.
So this is the first part of your homework that you have to memorize the word translation.
The second thing that you should do is that you should review your notes, you can do them as you memorize the lesson. You can do them before you memorize the lesson, you can do them after you memorize the lesson. But make sure that you also review your notes. Why? Because as you review your notes, what's going to happen, your understanding of the words is going to become better. And if your understanding is better, only then memorizing will become easy.
So review your notes as well. And in particular, in your notes, review the root words through letters, review the singular, plural, and also review the definitions.
And another thing that you should do, as your homework is recite the verses, or at least listen to the verses.
The more listening you will do, the more reading you will do, the more this learning process will become easier, the more familiar you become with the Quran, it will not remain something that is strange, you will become more and more accustomed to
the more listening, the more reading that you will do. And one thing that you can do is, for example, in a CD player, you can put a CD of sort of fancy hands a little bacala. And everyday, just start thinking from sort of fat, and sort of Baccarat all the way up until the day's lesson.
Every day, you could do that. If you have, you know an mp3 player every day, just listen to the verses up until the lesson that we have done.
Because the more listening you will do, the better your understanding will become. and dedicate at least an hour
every day, just think of it, I have to fix one hour. For the homework, I have to review my notes. And if you spend one hour, inshallah this would really be
your tests will become very easy for you. Because you know the transition already, it will become very easy for you in Sharla. And you think the purpose of the course is not just to get a diploma at the end, right? You all came here with the need to understand the Quran. So all of these steps will facilitate all of these steps will enable you to understand the Quran better.
So dedicate at least an hour, you can do that in the evening, you can do that in the morning, find a time that is best.
For those of you who are young, who do not have children who do not have to go cook at home, spend two hours, spend three hours, do it in the evening. For those of you with children, do it early morning, wake up a little early for budget, don't sleep right after budget.
recite the Quran at that time and review your translation of that thing. Find some time. And if you're unable to take an hour, at one, go spend about half an hour before going to bed, spend half an hour in the morning.
But make sure you dedicate at least an hour minimum. Do it right now and inshallah it will become easier.
I truly understand where you're coming from, how you feel that with the responsibilities with you know other things, it does become difficult. I understand it's so difficult to find time. But pray to Allah subhanaw taala inshallah, he will enable, inshallah, Allah will reward you for the effort that you put in.
Keep trying, keep trying.
I'm just giving an example so that you can relate better, and you can understand that it is possible.
When I started teaching, I was only made it open, I didn't have any children.
And then last year, as I was teaching, I had my son. And I thought that's it, I will not be able to do. But Alhamdulillah I was very persistent. I kept doing it. And I kept praying to a loss of friends. Until today, sometimes I feel it's impossible for me to go and teach. But I don't know from where to help of a loss.
I really don't know. I don't know. Sometimes he's just happy on his own and I can just do my work. And other times he's so clingy that he wants all my attention and I can't even spare five minutes Do you know just open up the book, open up my notes and do anything at all. But if you continue to pray to a loss of panels Allah you continue to strive a lover for Baraka, he will help you, you help in the wave of Las panatela use try and Allah will help you.
You know but that heavy that you take one step to Allah, Allah will take 10 steps towards but you have to start. You have to begin. You have to put in the effort and inshallah it will be possible.
Allah knows us. He knows a week
Clearly, he knows how limited we are.
He has sent this For unto us we have come to study it, he will inshallah give us the ability to do it.
Never tell yourself I cannot do it.
Tell yourself I can do it with the help of them.
I cannot do it on my own. I'm too weak but I can do it with the help of Indiana soroptimist.
Everyday make to offer yourself
if you make the art isn't going to work?
Of course, it will.
Definitely it's going to work.
Make to learn to manage your time, set priorities, and inshallah Allah will help you.
Ibrahim on Instagram, he made a dog. And you know, when it was accepted, after how many 1000s of years
2000 years, maybe more or less?
Allah knows when to answer the door.
There are people who attempted to do the course, years ago, they weren't able to complete it. They try it again. They weren't able to do it. They tried again, they weren't able to do it and they tried again. And 100 of Allah enabled him to do it.
Sometimes are those are not answered right away because Allah wants to see how committed we are, how persistent we are. Are we really sincere?
And remember, the more there are, you will do Okay, fine. Even if it's not answered right away, you have to reward in the hereafter. On the day of judgment, people will wish that none of their prayers were answered.
On the day of judgment, people who wish that none of their prayers were answered Why? Because of the reward for their patients for their making glass.
And you know, sometimes when a person every door is accepted, sometimes what we do is that we start making drawings where everything is fine. And when everything is not fine, we make still it's not fine. We make more door we make more than one and we continue to make it becomes a reason for us to come closer to a loss.
