Alhamdulillah How was your experience of reciting Surah Fatiha over the past week? Was there a difference between how you recited it before and how you recited it now, there was a difference of hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah. That is excellent. And this is the goal that in sha Allah, whatever we learn here, this is not just for the sake of you know, exercising our minds and learning about some complicated concepts, you know, feel good about ourselves because we are studying something great. You know, the goal over here is to better connect with the Quran. Because the Quran is our connection with Allah subhanaw taala This is the robe of Allah, that Allah has let down to us for us

00:01:14 --> 00:01:59

so that we can hold on to it and through it, we connect with our Lord or zoologia. So with the same spirit in sha Allah, we will begin the study of Surah Al Baqarah. And yes, Surah Baqarah is a long Surah Surah Fatiha Al Hamdulillah, we managed to study that succeed in two sessions Surah Al Baqarah will take several months in sha Allah. But the thing is that it doesn't matter how long we spend in studying the surah what matters over here is that we are getting to connect with the book of Allah we are getting to learn its meanings, and everyone you know learns at their own pace. Alhamdulillah so the longer we take, the more blessed we are, the more fortunate we are because we're getting to

00:01:59 --> 00:02:50

spend more time with sudo Baqarah in sha Allah. So let's begin our lesson. This is lesson number two, we will study saluted Bacara verses one to five inshallah. Now the first thing that we're going to talk about is introduction to the sutra, its importance, its significance. So the first thing is that sorbitol Bacara is a Madani Surah Madani Surah meaning it was revealed after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrated, he made the Hijra to Medina and this surah was revealed over a period of several years. Surah Baqarah is the longest Surah of the Quran. It has 286 verses, and it covers two and a half of the Quran. It has the longest verse of the Quran and it also has the

00:02:50 --> 00:03:36

greatest verse of the Quran. And its last two verses are from a special treasure as we learned in Hadith, and the last two verses of Surah Al Baqarah are a light and they are also a protection and a source of great reward for the person who recites them. Now when it comes to the importance of the Surah it is well known there's a hadith that you can see on the screen and this is the Hadith that inshallah we'll be talking about in order to understand the significance of the surah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it Karole Quran recite the Quran for inner who yet T yo Pia Mati Shafi I leave us Herbie because on the Day of Resurrection, it will come as an intercessor for those

00:03:36 --> 00:04:30

who recite it. He said it kura Azahar Wayne recite the two bright ones Al Baqarah was Surah Al Imran the two bright ones which are so little Bacara and earlier Imran Why are recite these two because for in the homage to Yanni yo Millcreek Amity and know whom Allah mammoth tan because they will come on the day of resurrection in the form of two clouds or two shades or okay and now whomever Yeah, yeah attorney okay and nahama Kahneman trading so if or they will come in the form of two flocks of birds in ranks, why two had Januar and US Habima pleading for those who recite them? He said Icaros Surah Al Baqarah recite Surah Al Baqarah. Why for in the * Baraka because to take recourse to it

00:04:30 --> 00:04:59

is a blessing what Dhaka has Sora and to leave it to give it up is a cause of grief a cause of regret, what at the still play it Rahel batalla and the magician's cannot confront it. So in this hadith, we see a number of things that tell us about the importance of silicon Bacala. The first thing we see is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself told us the name of the surah that the surah is called L

00:05:00 --> 00:05:44

Bukhara and why is it called Al Baqarah because of the story of the Bacara, which is in the Surah, the story of the cow which is in the Surah. Now, remember that the names of the surah of the Quran, you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us their names, and these names do not necessarily mean that they are the main subject or the main topic of the entire solar. If the solar is called Al Baqarah, it doesn't mean that the surah is only talking about the incident of the cow. Likewise, if there's a surah, called a Nyssa, it doesn't mean that it is only talking about women. If there's a surah that is named Ibrahim, it doesn't mean that it is only talking about Ibrahim

00:05:44 --> 00:06:29

alayhis salaam, the name of the surah is just a way of referring to it. It's the Sunnah of the cow meaning the surah that has the story of the cow in it and the names of the sodas are you know sometimes after how they begin so for example, solid solid is called solid because it begins with solid. We have solid Bani Israel eel because it mentions the incident off or rather, it refers to the Bani Israel eel in the beginning on the first page, sort of Ali Imran is called Ali Imran, because it has the story of the family of Iran in it. So the names of the sutras are you know, different. Some sources have multiple names as well. So Surah Al Baqarah, the Prophet sallallahu

00:06:29 --> 00:07:20

alayhi wa sallam himself told as the name of the surah and we see in this hadith that he also called it one of the Zahawi in one of the two bright lights. Zahira is a beautiful, glistening shining light that is of a bright white color. So the surah is an illumination, the surah is a guidance, the surah is an honor the surah is a beauty, the surah brings clarity, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In this hadith, we see that he especially instructed us to recite the surah that ikura o Surah Al Baqarah, recite Surah Al Baqarah. And we learn in a hadith that will say the man who there are the Allahu Anhu when he was reciting Surah Baqarah, the angels were present, and they attended

00:07:20 --> 00:08:05

his recitation. Then we see in this hadith that on the Day of Judgment Surah Baqarah. And solid earlier Imran both will come in the form of shades, right in the form of clouds or canopies or flocks of birds. And the idea over here is that these sorrows will come and shelter and protect. You know, there are people on the Day of Judgment because remember that on the Day of Judgment, the sun will be brought very, very near. And in a hadith we learned that people will be like drowning in their sweat. Some people will be drowning with the sweat reaching up to the level of their mouth, so that people will be exposed people will be in danger, but Surah Al Baqarah surah. Earlier Imran will

00:08:05 --> 00:08:51

come to shelter, to give shade to their people on the day of judgment, and specifically we learn that the soldiers will plead for those who recite them, meaning the sutras will intercede. They will advocate for their reciters any the people who learn Surah Al Baqarah, who recite Surah Baqarah, who follow suit Al Baqarah. Then the sutras will fight for a person on the Day of Judgment, advocate for the person on the Day of Judgment. In another Hadith we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that on the Day of Resurrection, the Quran and those who acted according to it will be brought with suitable Bukhara and soothe earlier Imran preceding them. So it will be as though there

00:08:51 --> 00:09:38

is a special you know procession with sutra Bukhara and sooth earlier Imran proceeding the people of the Quran, Allahu Bucha, and I'm in home. And then we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said that there have Baraka that taking the surah is a blessing taking it, meaning learning it, memorizing it, reciting it regularly, consistently, then this is a source of blessing for a person, where in this world and in the hereafter How is it a source of blessing for a person in this world? In this world, we see that the person who learns Surah Al Baqarah becomes a person of knowledge and a person of honor and dignity. We learn in a hadith about how the Prophet sallallahu

00:09:38 --> 00:09:59

alayhi wa sallam was one sending a group of people on a certain expedition and in order to appoint a leader among them, he asked every single person that how much of the Quran Have you learned, so each person mentioned about you know how much Quran they had learned, and then the youngest of them said that I have learned Surah to Bacara the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam asked him a

00:10:00 --> 00:10:43

Baraka Surah Al Baqarah, do you have meaning Have you memorized pseudo Baqarah? And that young man said yes. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said fed the hub for into Amuro home, go, you are their leader. So instantly that person was chosen above others. Why? Because of his knowledge of pseudo tobacco because he had learned Surah Baqarah. We learned that in the Battle of her name, when you know, the Muslims were suddenly attacked and they began dispersing they began to run away. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam asked his uncle or bestel de la Mourinho because he had a really loud voice that call the Muslims right call them. So our bass radula horn who said, Yeah, us have a

00:10:43 --> 00:11:27

Surah Al Baqarah. All people have sudo to Baqarah any, this is how he referred to them, and he shouted out loud, all people of Surah Al Baqarah. And when they heard that, they stopped, and they turned back and they went towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. So learning Surah Al Baqarah is a source of blessing it because by learning Surah Baqarah a person is learning a significant portion of knowledge. And that knowledge is going to be a source of honor, it's going to be a source of clarity, it's going to be a source of blessing for them by reading Silikal Bacala a person is reciting a lot of the Quran. So by that also there will be a lot of baraka and a surah de

00:11:27 --> 00:12:13

la Mora and who said that when a man among us read Surah Al Baqarah. And earlier Imran he became eminent among us, Jack Dafina meaning all of a sudden he became important among us or you are a Davina or Lehmann he was counted as someone great among us, or the fina there shutting it he was considered as someone who is very honorable among us. So sorbitol Bacara is a source of honor for its people in this world even and in the hereafter. Its blessing, its benefit is endless. There is a Hadith and Muslim Ahmed, in which we learned that Buddha or the Longhorn who said that I was sitting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, Learn sootel Bacara because taking it is

00:12:13 --> 00:12:58

a blessing and leaving it is a source of regret, and the magician's cannot counter it. And then the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam paused for some time, and then he said, Learn Surah Al Baqarah. And Alia Imran, because they are two lights that will shed their people on the Day of Judgment, they will come in the form of clouds or canopies or flocks of birds into rules, and the Quran will meet its companion on the Day of Judgment, right at the time when his grave will be opened up. So the moment that a person is resurrected, right at that time, the Quran will come and meet that person in the form of a human being. And the Quran will say to him, do you recognize me? And that person will

00:12:58 --> 00:13:49

say no, I do not recognize you. So the Quran will say I am your companion, the Quran, who kept you thirsty during the hot days and kept you awake in the night. And every trader is behind his trade goods. Meaning if a person is you know, selling certain items than he is with his trade goods, right, he is guarding them, and he is depending on them. The Quran will say that today you are ahead of all trade goods, meaning you will be guarded better than any trade goods were ever I am here to guard you. I am here to bring you gains prophets rewards because while people pursued worldly benefits, you pursued the Quran. And then in the Hadith, we learned that the person will be given

00:13:49 --> 00:14:40

kingship ownership in his right hand and eternity in his left hand and a crown of honor will be placed on his head and his parents will be dressed with silken robes that are better than the whole world. So they will ask that why have we been dressed with this and they will be told because of your child learning the Quran because of your teaching your child the Quran, and then the companion of your Quran will be told recite and ascend into the ranks of paradise. So this person will continue to ascend into the ranks of paradise for as long as he recites the Quran. So, learning the Quran, learning software baccarat Yes, it is a source of endless blessing in this life and in the

00:14:40 --> 00:14:59

next life. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said what taka has Surah leaving it is a regret leaving it is a source of sorrow, a source of grief, meaning whoever does not recite Surah Baqarah does not learn Surah Baqarah does not implement what is in surah

00:15:00 --> 00:15:51

Will Bacala then such a person is truly in deprivation, he will be sad, he will have regrets in his life, because he will make mistakes. Knowledge is something that guards you that protects you from making mistakes. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the magicians cannot confront it, meaning shaitan and his people, the magicians, they are not able to stand against the power of certain Bacala. So, Surah Baqarah is a great defense against shaytaan his whispers against the magic of the magicians against the evil of the jinn. So pseudo Bacara is a defense. In another Hadith we learn that lethargy or LuBu Utako macabre, do not make your homes into graveyards in a

00:15:51 --> 00:16:34

shape line, a young Pharaoh mineral beta levy to crow fie Surah Al Baqarah, That shaytaan runs away from the house in which sort of Bukhara is recited. So if ever you feel that there's too much arguing and fighting going on, that, you know, people are missing prayers, there is lack of blessing. You know, there is problems there sadness, then it is important that we recite Surah Al Baqarah. In our homes, in your room, in your living room. And don't just play the recitation, recite it yourself as well. Because when you recite Surah Baqarah in your home, then shaitan will leave your home shaitan will not be able to stay there, the influence the power of shaitan will be broken.

00:16:34 --> 00:17:22

In another Hadith we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called certain Bacara the senang, the pinnacle of the Quran, he said intellectually che in cinammon, for everything is a pinnacle, and the pinnacle of the Quran is certain Bacara. Now the Suriname of something is its highest part its peak. So for example, the hump of a camel is called it's sent down. The tsunami of a people is their most honorable one. So sudo for Bukhara is very important in the Quran. And how is it important? Why is it important because its contents are ever relevant. And we see that it contains AYATUL kursi, which is so powerful. It contains the last two verses of Surah Al Baqarah are

00:17:22 --> 00:18:09

from the treasure of the throne. They are a protection and a source of great reward. So the significance the importance of Surah Al Baqarah is well known and we should keep this in mind as we studied the surah another important thing that we should look at is the overview of the surah its main themes, and insha Allah I'll get into that in a little while. We learn in a hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I was given the seven lengthy ones, meaning a sub Barkley while in place of the total arts. So suitable Bacala remember it is from the category of the sutras which are known as a subdirectory while the seven lengthy sutras and the sutras are from

00:18:09 --> 00:18:57

Surah Al Baqarah, to pseudo and violent Toba. So little and violent obar also considered as one surah. So these are seven long sutras and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I was given the sources in place of the Torah and he said I was given those with 100 meaning and be in the sutras which are on average 100 verses a little more, a little less and these are sutras Eunice all the way to hoogenraad. He said I was given V's in place of the Injeel and he said I was given them a Thani meaning those which are recited very often in place off the boat, and I was given preference with those which are separated. The Mufasa Mufasa sutras are sodas, who gelato to a NAS. And what is

00:18:57 --> 00:19:35

meant by that is because the solos are very short they are separated with the bus Mala meaning after every little while, you have to say Bismillah and then you continue with the recitation. So in this hadith, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that in place of the Torah, he was given the seven longswords. And all of the seven long sutras is Surah Al Baqarah. Now before we begin with that said, I want you to open up your must have or the translation of the Quran that you have, and by the way, in every class, I'm sorry, I did not mention this before, but please keep this in mind in the future that in your class, make sure that you have a copy of the translation of the

00:19:35 --> 00:20:00

Quran with you with you a hard copy because I want you to be able to become very familiar with the Quran that you should be able to, you know, open up the Quran, and you know, find a surah find a verse And notice, you know, certain themes in the Quran. Inshallah. So as you open up the mascara, I want you to notice certain themes in Surah Baqarah or certain things that are mentioned in Silikal Bukhara for

00:20:00 --> 00:20:41

First of all, we see that right at the beginning of sudoku Bacala, we see the description of the people who gain guidance from the Quran. And then we have the mention of the people who don't benefit from the Quran. And then we see in verse 21, Allah subhanaw taala addresses all people, that all of you should worship Allah. And then we have in verses 30 onwards the story of the murderer, his Salam, you know, his creation, and how he was agenda. And then we have after that, verses 40 onwards, Allah subhanaw taala, especially addresses the Bani Israel in the Bani Israel eel are specifically the Jews, the people who follow the Torah, who follow Musa alayhis salam. So there are

00:20:41 --> 00:21:24

many verses almost, you know, till the end of the first Jews in which Allah subhanaw taala addresses them, and he reminds them of the different favours that he has bestowed upon them. And there is a special invitation that is given to them to believe in the Quran to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then we have in verse 124, of Surah Al Baqarah. Allah subhanaw taala mentions about Ibrahim alayhis salam, the story of how he built the Kaaba, then you have in the second Jews, certain commands that are given to the believers, for example, facing the Qibla in verse 158, there is mention of rituals of Hajj and then you have after that in verse 168, commands related to food,

00:21:24 --> 00:22:15

what is lawful, what is not lawful. And then you have after that verses 178 onwards, you have some legal rulings, like for example, what to do in the case of murder. You have the law of inheritance mentioned in a little bit of detail in verse 181 onwards, and then you have verse 183, the commands related to fasting, and then you have verse 189 onwards, commands related to Hajj and even war, verse 196, more commands related to Hajj pilgrimage. And then you have after that more laws related to war, alcohol, and then ethical commands, dealing with people who are having difficulties in their life, that we should be charitable towards them. Verse number 221 onwards we have commands related

00:22:15 --> 00:23:02

to marriage and divorce. And then we have more detail on laws related to marriage and divorce. Then there is a long story of an incident from the history of Bani Israel eel, and we have more commands related to spending in the way of Allah and then riba you know, taking interest, and then how to deal with loans lending, borrowing, and finally, the end of the surah with the two great verses. So this is just a quick overview of you know, what's in the Surah. Now, if you look at what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said over here that I was given the seven lengthy ones in place of the total lot, when we look at the two lots and the total dots today it refers to the Five Books of Musa

00:23:02 --> 00:23:43

alayhis salaam which are known as the book of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. We see that in the book of Genesis, there is the story of creation, especially of the you know, Adam already has Salam. There is mention of Ibrahim alayhis salam in the book of Exodus, we have a lot of detail of the oppression of Bani Israel in Egypt and how Musa alayhis salaam, you know, rescued them, and how the Bani Israel were saved and then how they worshipped the calf. And then we have in the Book of Leviticus, it begins with the command to slaughter a bull. And then there are details about offerings, laws are given, you know, dietary laws, Penal Laws, purity laws, ethical commands,

00:23:43 --> 00:24:26

observation of the Sabbath, there is a reminder of God's favours to them in the book of Numbers. You know, it begins with the mention of the tribes of Israel. There's laws related to inheritance war, their complaints and their disobedience has mentioned in the book of Deuteronomy, you know, they're reminders of the fulfillment of the covenant with Allah subhanaw taala. And there's more, you know, details related to laws, specifically marriage, divorce, legal cases, etc. And it's important to be familiar with this because we will see right at the beginning of Surah Baqarah, Allah subhanaw taala mentions what was revealed before that the Quran is a confirmation of that which came before it is a

00:24:26 --> 00:24:50

continuation of that which came before and there is great resemblance, you know, between the Quran and the previous scriptures, especially the Torah. So in sha Allah, you will notice that in the class, I will be referring to these matters, and inshallah we'll talk about, you know, what our approach should be when it comes to the toe rot and the NG
