And before we study the Quran, we have to study or we have to learn what the Quran is. So in sha Allah now we'll have a small presentation about the Quran. What is the Quran?
What do you know about the Quran?
When you hear the word Quran, what do you think of?
What do you think? The speech of Allah so panel data, the word of Allah panel data, the column of the last panel data, what is it, that Allah subhanaw taala has said to us? Why is that important? Why is that important? Is it important to know the speech of someone? Is it it's important because he is our Creator? And he is telling us through his speech, what he wants from us, and what he doesn't want from us.
So a short presentation about the Quran.
Does anyone know about the meaning of the word Quran?
What the word of earn means
I encourage all of you to take your notes now.
You have begun your journey of knowledge.
There is a quote in the Arabic language that other animals say don't knowledge is an animal of hunting an animal that you're hunting, right? A prey and while kitasato by either writing it is going to harness the animal,
because if you don't harness it, if you don't tie it up, what's going to happen? It's going to fly away, the bird is going to fly away, the animal is going to run away. So similar his knowledge and the reason will say you don't want to or you do
So if you do not write it, what's going to happen when you go home?
You could forget it. So if you have it written, you can always open up your notes. And remember
so what does the word Quran mean?
So Quran is from the Arabic Allah de la Have you heard of the word good Ah, what does that mean?
recitation of the Quran, so called an is also from Quran. So Kira means recitation or an is that which is read that which is recited
and the word called an because it is different from Quran inshallah we'll go into the detail of the word structures in the Arabic language, okay. The pattern on which the words for the word called on gives the meaning of not just that which is read or that which is recited, but that which is recited and read a lot,
So what does that show us?
That Quran is not just for studying and learning what it is for reciting as well.
So what is the Quran? How would you describe the Quran?
Some of you said, it is the word of the Creator, it is the speech of the Creator.
It's knowledge. It's a letter, it's a manual from a las panatela for mankind. It's a book of guidance.
Let's see how the Koran is described in the Quran. How does Allah so panel data, describe the Quran
we read in sort of the sharada is 192 to 196. What in the who, Latin zero beta alanine and indeed, the Quran is the revelation of who of the Lord of the worlds
Who is he? Not just the one whom I worship, but He is the Lord, He is the creator of the world. Nevertheless be here ruhul amin, the trustworthy spirit, meaning the angel gibreel has brought it down upon who Allah Allah beaker, Lita akuna minal moondream, upon your heart, O Prophet sallallahu Sallam that you may be of the Warner's. So we see that the purpose of sending the Quran down is to warn the people to question the people to tell them what is good and what is not.
be discerning our bien muy bien, the Quran, Allah says, in a clear Arabic language, the Quran has been revealed in a clear Arabic language, what in the hood feasible in a wedding? And indeed it is mentioned in the scriptures of the former peoples,
meaning it is mentioned in the previous scriptures as well.
So who revealed the
last panel data? And who is he? The rub the Lord, the creator, the master, the owner of the entire creation of the entire existence? So it is his speech. It is his word. We're in the home less than zero or bellami who brought it down? gibreel Nazarbayev, Rochelle amin the trustworthy spirit has brought it down. Who was it revealed upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on on Vika Lita kona moondream.
In what language was it revealed? The Arabic language be listening out I'll be in mubin notice over here Allah says in a clear Arabic language not just in the Arabic language, but in a clear Arabic language
and inshallah when you will study the Quran in Arabic inshallah, in this course, you will realize how clear the Arabic language is. Why Allah subhanaw taala chose this language for the Quran.
How was it revealed through
through revelation? Allah says in the Quran in surah Shura, whatever Alico, hanaa alayka, or an Arabian and thus we have revealed to you and Arabic Quran, we have revealed to you.
So how is it delivered through ye through revelation?
And how was it revealed in what form in the form of different souls in the form of different chapters
for example, reading the Quran in surah to new surah tune and zelner her, this is a surah. This is a chapter that we have revealed
So the Quran was brought down through the washi. And it was brought down in the form of sutras. How else was it revealed? With is with versus what are called unzila la,
tin by Jonathan, we read in Surah Baqarah, that indeed we have sent down clear verses, verses that are very clear. So the Quran has also been revealed in the form of verses.
And how was the Quran revealed?
How was the revelation of the Quran?
Was adjust in one go? No, it was gradual revelation.
Have you ever tried to read a book in just one day?
Just one day, have you tried? I'm sure many of you have. How is it?
It exhausts you by the end, isn't it? Sometimes people are hungry. And they will not eat because they want to finish their book. Right? Similarly, they have to go somewhere they will not go. Why? Because they have to finish their book.
So we see that if you read an entire book in one day, first of all, your understanding is not that great. Secondly, you read it in one go. Maybe a week after you forget about it. Isn't that so? And also, it's very exhausting. It's very tiring.
So the more on a last panel data revealed it gradually over a period of how long 23 years.
And this is also why this course has been designed so that we understand the Quran we studied the Quran in how long
over a course of a year and a half. Because this is not something that can be done successfully in a day or two. In a month or two. It requires time the Quran was revealed gradually.
So why was it revealed gradually to strengthen the resolve of the Prophet sought
to strengthen the resolve the determination, the courage of the Prophet subtle autism.
Allah says in the Quran in surah al Furqan number 32.
Just write the references
walk on and levena cafaro Lola New Zealand la Hill, New Jersey Latin wahida
those who disbelieve they say why was the Quran not revealed to him all at once? How can the Quran was not just revealed on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in one go at once?
Allah replies okay then he curliness sub beterbiev fU waratah Nando de la. Thus it is that we may strengthen their by your heart and we have spaced it distinctly.
When was the Quran revealed?
In the month of Ramadan? We read in the Quran in surah, Baqarah ayah, 185 shahidul Ramadan and ludy own Zilla feel
it was a month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed. So when was it revealed? When was it revealed in the month of Ramadan?
And the month of Ramadan when in particular,
Laila tilaka, which night is that? The Night of Decree the night of power, which one is
one of the last 10 odd nights
one of the last 10 odd nights
so during that night in particular, the Quran was revealed.
Why was the Quran revealed? Why was it sent down? What's the purpose of sending the Quran down?
Why was the Quran sent to us
as a guide?
So we read in the Quran in Surat Ibrahim, Allah says keytab one and xlm in a
this is a book that we have revealed to you why Leeteuk region NASA mean of Illuminati in a newly be isn't European.
So that you may take the people out of the darknesses into the light by the permission of their Lord illustrata or season Hamid to the birth of the one who is mighty, and the one who is praiseworthy.
Notice I will also pointed out it says that you may take people out of the darkness into the light
when you're in darkness. Do you know where the table is? Do you know where the bed is? Do you know where the door is? Do you know where the light switch is? No. If you move, you could hurt yourself. Right?
If you move, you could fall, you could trip over something.
So ignorance has been described as darkness. Because when a person doesn't know what to do, he could make a lot of mistakes, he could harm himself a lot.
So the Quran has been sent to take us out of the darkness, out of misguidance. Out of unawareness out of ignorance, and give us knowledge give us understanding.
So who was the Quran sent to? Who are the recipients of the Quran?
Allah Allah me, all of mankind, not just the Muslims.
Remember this, the Quran has been sent not only for the Muslims, the Muslims are only those people who believe in the Quran. But is the Quran sent to everybody? Yes, of course it is.
So the Quran has been sent to the entire mankind.
Allah subhanaw taala says intro to Zuma in zelner are they called kita Lim nasty bit?

One of the characteristics of this course is that it is upright What does it mean by upright? What does it mean by upright?

Sometimes you read a book and then there is a newer version of that book isn't you download a software and they find some glitches in it and then there is an update. Why?
Because it is something that has been made by human beings
the Quran is upright it has no errors, no mistakes. The Quran is upright upright by him also means that which leads to the right path as well that which leads to the correct way as well that which sets right as well.
So what are some of the names of the Quran we know that Quran is one of the names right? We read it in the Quran in certain israa Quran has been used as a name for the book that we read any other name of the Quran that you are aware of.
For con, what is for con mean? criterion. Remember for on is from Florida. Fuck Division Three, what does that mean division? Right? So for corn is that which enables you to separate between right and wrong between good and bad?

That which comes down gradually, one part after the other. And the name of the current Anzio is mentioned in sort of the sharara we're in the who let n z Lu or bellami.
What is the status of the Quran? What is the status of the Quran?
You see everything in our life. We give priority to them according to their status according to what they deserve. So where does Allah subhanaw taala
what status does Allah give to the Quran?
We find that in the Quran itself. Allah says in Surah Tunis Colby fugly lair he will be urashima t COVID elica solea for Xu y who will hire me management
see in the back
You have Allah and in His mercy in that, let them rejoice. What's the bounty of Allah? What's the mercy of Allah?
The fact that we have been given the Quran
so because you have been given the Quran, Allah says, rejoice, be happy. What does Allah say? Be happy, rejoice. So I want all of you to be happy, smile, show your happiness, you're getting something which is mercy from Allah Subhana Allah and Allah says that it is better than what ever that they accumulate, it is better than anything and everything that people could collect.
People only collect those things which are valuable, we will only collect those things which are important to them.
Those things which are valued those things which have some importance.
So the Quran Allah says it is better than whatsoever that people can ever collect.
So therefore, the status of the Quran is very high.
Another iron the Quran in surah ambia Allah says we have the Quran, mobile, Khun Angela who
and this Quran is a blessing message. It is a Vic it is a message and it is mobile rock it is blasted. What does it mean by mobile app? Does anyone know?
We say mobarak we say Baraka, what does that mean?
Baraka what is a blessing, what is blessing, gift, basically is that that mobile rock is that which is full of goodness,
that which has abundant good in it, abundant benefit in it.
So this an Allah calls it Mubarak,
it has abundant good, it has abundant benefit in it. For who for all of us.
And from the Hadees we find out about the status of the Quran. There's a hadith that is mentioned in Muslim hermit, in which Jabez will be learning narrative that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, rejoice, be happy. Why? For verily, this or on one part of it, is in the hands of Allah. And the other part of it is in your hands.
One part is with Allah. And the other part is with you. Therefore, hold on to it.
Why hold on to it? Because it is your connection with Allah subhanaw taala.
If you're going on a journey, if you're going somewhere and you really depend on your parents,
what do you want? You want to be connected with your parents? Isn't that so? Right? Similarly, if you're going somewhere and you really depend on your spouse, you really depend on your friends. Wherever you are, what do you want? You want to make sure that you're connected with them, no matter how far away you are, isn't that so? You want to make sure that you have your cell phone with you. You have access to the internet so that any question any concern, any problem, anything you have, you can just communicate with them directly. And you can get the answer.
The Koran is our connection with Allah soprano.
You have a problem? Who can solve it? Unless
you're not sure who can guide you. Allah subhanaw taala what's the link? What's the connection? The Quran
so according to this hadith we find that verily this Quran, one part of it is in the hands of Allah, and the other part is in your hands.
Therefore hold on to it, for you will never be destroyed, nor will you ever go astray after
as long as you keep the connection.
As long as you hold on to the Quran,
and other Hadees we find out and as we learn, he reported that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Verily, Allah has chosen people amongst mankind.
People are all the same, isn't it? We learned that from the Quran, people are all the same everybody is of equal status. But Allah has chosen some people who are these people. They are the people of the Quran. They are the people of Allah and His chosen ones.
What does it mean by people of the Quran?
Those who believe in the Quran, those who study the Quran, those who recite the Quran, those who learn the Quran, those who memorize the Quran.
Those who practice the Quran, those who hold on to the Quran, they are the people of the Quran
And who are they?
The people whom Allah has chosen.
Everybody is the same, who is chosen
those who have the Quran
what is the virtue of learning and teaching the Quran?
According to a hadith that is mentioned in Al Bukhari, we find out that hi eurocon Manta, allemaal por Ana, or alemayehu, the best of you, the best of you, is who who is the best person according to this study, the one who learns the Quran and doesn't put a full stop after that, but
he teaches it as well.
He learns the Quran, and then he teaches it as well. Both conditions are there.
And other hobbies, we find out the profit sort of artists lm said, Never do a group of people gathered together in one of the houses of Allah reciting the book of Allah and pondering over it. What does this group do? They gather together in one of the houses of a lot. What does it mean by the House of Allah? Masjid?
So a group of people they gather together in one of the houses of Allah, what do they do? What do they do?
Just socializing, talking, chatting. Know, the Hadith says, reciting the book of Allah and pondering over it.
Because remember, recitation alone is not enough, you have to be able to understand what the Quran says.
So they recite the book of Allah and also ponder over it, except that peace descends upon them. And mercy surrounds them, and the angels in circle them. And Allah remembers them in his gathering.
Imagine, Allah remembers those people who remember of law, by reciting his book.
Allah mentions them. A lot talks about them.
If you ever find out that you were quoted in an article in the newspaper, how do you feel your name is there? How do you feel special, isn't it? Sometimes people will cut out that, you know, that particular article and they will keep it and they will show this look. I've been quoted here My name is mentioned here.
Similarly, if somebody is mentioned, maybe on the TV or maybe somebody mentioned in a gathering, how do you feel feel so special? That they remembered me they actually thought of me? That's so nice of them. Even if it's something very small that you did, just the fact that they remembered you, means a lot to you. And if somebody doesn't ask about you doesn't mention how do you feel? So left out, feel so bad.
So according to this Hadith, when a group of people when they gather together, reciting the book of Allah, reflecting over it, which insha Allah you will be doing for the next year and a half? What did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say that Allah remembers those people as well?
So if you want a las panatela to remember you to mention you, what do you have to do?
Study the Quran.
What is the virtue of learning and teaching the Quran?
Allah says, Your father in law who Latina Amman, woman come when Latina otter in the Raja,
Allah will raise those who have believed among you, and those who were given knowledge how by degrees,
and this is in the dunya, as well as the hereafter.
So May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst those who truly understand and implement his book.
And as you know, the focus in our course, is the very words of the Quran.
You see, the Quran is in the Arabic language, in order to understand a book that is in a language other than the language that you speak, what do you have to do?
learn that language.
But how many of us are really able to go and learn and master the Arabic language living over here in this country, in this day and age, how many of us, especially as women, with responsibilities of our families, it's almost impossible for us to go out there to learn the Arabic language.
So our focus in this course is to facilitate you to understand the Quran in Arabic and one of the best ways is through the word to word translation.
This inshallah we will begin our first lesson
