00:00:32--> 00:01:13

All praises do for Allah azza wa jal alone We ask Allah azza wa jal to exalt the mentioning grant peace to our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to his family and his companions, were talking about educating our children islamically. And, of course, as we've mentioned in the previous episodes, it's not so much necessarily about you being the one to as a parent to necessarily do all of that education. But at least you understand how to educate your children islamically. And I really want to sort of emphasize what we had mentioned at the end of the previous episode, regarding the fact that every parent, ideally would go through a text on how to seek knowledge is a

00:01:13--> 00:01:47

fundamental text on how to seek knowledge and our handler. With regard to a Drosophila or Maria, we'll do our best to put some links with this video, to other videos from the teachers that are already here that relate to how to seek knowledge in a more detailed way. Because ultimately, yes, how to seek knowledge that's from the view of the student. But as a parent, it also tells you what your children should be doing to seek knowledge. So you can apply it as a parent as well. And of course, we said every parent should be aiming to be an example for their children. So you gain the best of both worlds in that way.

00:01:48--> 00:02:41

We're continuing on with just a summary of this gain of a, a synopsis or a brief overview of some of the most important points that you're going to need in order to teach your children islamically. And what we're going to start with now is the principle that knowledge is done in steps and in stages, in steps and in stages with Tata Raj. And we can take this from an IRA in sorbitol for client in which Alliance auto said what color Latina katha Lola New Zealand la Hilco annual Joomla 10 wahida kasali kaeleen author beta be here for adek wallet Telenor who total Tila. Allah azza wa jal said that the disbelievers say, would it not be that if the Quran why was the Quran not sent down in one

00:02:41--> 00:03:33

go? Why was Dr. Anna just given to the profitsystem like that one goal from that, you know, straight from the heavens, there's the Quran. So 230 had saltiness Joomla and wide, why not like that. Allah said, in this way, we made your heart firm. And we can take from this principle that the best way to be firm in knowledge is to take it step by step, and to take it with a double edge, in steps. And in stages, piece by piece, step by step. And sometimes one of the mistakes that a lot of parents make in this regard is that and we will make it to be honest, I make it all the time, you know, spotlight, in the sense that what we tend to do is, we tend to crave to do everything at once. We

00:03:33--> 00:04:20

want everything in one goal. When we say that today, I'm going to finish this book from beginning to end. And today, I'm going to memorize this many Heidi, and today I'm going to do this and that. And we have that same mentality of wanting everything, Juliet and wahida. Wanting everything to come in in the instant. Instead of saying, let me just take a small amount every day. Let me take a small amount every week. Let me just continue and be regular in that as long as you're on the right path. And by the right path, I don't mean that you're on the right path in terms of your belief or your Islam, I mean that you're on the right path for knowledge, you're actually taking the knowledge in

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

the right way. Then inshallah, even if you're taking baby steps, those baby steps have an advantage, which is that as long as you are actually learning the right way you're on the right path for knowledge in terms of you are actually approaching it the right way studying the right things using the right methodology. Then if you are taking baby steps, those baby steps are advantageous because they allow your knowledge to be more firm. And that's why allies will just give that to the profit size of over 23 years. Can Danica leaner said better be here for attic so that your heart will be confirmed on it. You will take it step by step

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

page by page IRA by IRA that is going to make someone far more firmly grounded than taking something in one goal. Now, that doesn't mean and someone shouldn't understand from that, that we don't push our children to memorize the whole Quran. And we say no, no, you should, you know, memorize the Quran over this length, if it's easy for the child to memorize the Quran when they little amazing, but the knowledge from that is going to come to them piece by piece in terms of the the the rulings that understanding that tip seal, it's a double reflection and pondering that's going to come, you know, day by day and piece by piece is not going to come in one go. So there's nothing wrong with

00:05:39--> 00:06:13

the child pushing them at an early age to memorize, as we mentioned the previous episode, because this is the time they have the time and the ability to do that. There's nothing wrong with pushing the children to memorize at that age. But in terms of the understanding, that's going to be piece by piece and stage by stage and even if you can't take his genome Latin wide, you can't memorize what you memorize in one goal, you lose it in one goal. Whatever you memorize in one goal, you lose in one go. That's the that's how it works. Whatever you memorize in small amounts and stages, generally it stays with you.

00:06:14--> 00:06:42

And that's an important lesson as it relates to health. And again, we really have a whole discussion which is outside of the topic of this short course, which is to have a whole discussion on how to do health how to memorize and inshallah again, if we have resources by a medical student Maria shala will post those and link those along with the video inshallah Tada. So this is what's before Khan tells us about the need for us to learn

00:06:44--> 00:07:08

things stage by stage and we have another evidence for this or another thing that I would like to bring you it's actually a story from the Sierra of an Imam Sophia thodi Rahim Allah, Allah. He was one of the great imaams of Islam, one of the great scholars of Hadith. One of the figures that stands out in Islamic history and Eman. Sophia an affiliate rang a low tide

00:07:09--> 00:08:01

and this relates to the mother of Sofia thoroughly. She said, Yeah, Bonnie, all my son, all my small son, either Khattab ash Arata ahaadeeth our ash otter off, she said if you write down 10 Hadith, she sent him off to study Hadith. She said if you write down 10 Hadees or 10 letters, fumble her off enough Sica Xia that and female Sheikh, our homemaker, what laconic she said, Do you see that you look at yourself, write 10 Howdy, when you've written 10 Howdy, look at yourself and ask yourself, Am I becoming Am I do I see in myself that I am getting an increase in terms of my patience, in terms of my progress in terms of my

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

my manners and my behavior

00:08:06--> 00:08:52

and the fear that I have of Allah. She said for inland Tara valic ffilm. And now julio de Rocco LA and Phalke, she said if you don't see this change in yourself, then know that it is harming you, is not benefiting you. And so upon Allah that is really an amazing, amazing lesson. There are so many lessons within this. But two things I wanted to highlight number one, that to learn 10 Hadith then write 10 more in solve their wordings I mentioned that she sent him to write 10 Hadeeth. And she said that if you see this change in yourself, then write 10 more 10 more. And if you still see it, write 10 more. And if you still see it, write 10 more like that. And the other thing is that what is

00:08:52--> 00:09:38

the higher what's the goal is the goal knowledge for knowledge sake, pass upon law, you feel that's what it's become, in this time that we live in. It's become a Cormac McCarthy, you've been your hearts have become preoccupied with numbers, just getting knowledge for the sake of knowledge degrees for the sake of degrees, and masters and PhDs and whatever and just gathering together things for the sake of attackers or just to say that you have the numbers or you have the the paper trail or you have the qualifications, or the person collect ijazat and says I have so many jazz art in this and that supine a lot. That's not what matters. What matters is what you act upon. If that

00:09:38--> 00:10:00

doctorate made you fear a lot more, then go and get another one and another one and another one. If that ijazah made your prayer better. Go and get another one and another one. If that knowledge that you took from that shift made you closer to Allah subhanaw taala then go and seek more but ultimate

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

We know this, that if you're not seeing those changes in yourself, know that this is harming us not benefiting you. Because knowledge is either hijack for you or against you.

00:10:12--> 00:10:47

It's either an evidence for you, or against you, either it will witness on your behalf, or it will witness against you. So you have to look at your children. And this is, again, really important that we're not seeing to our children, or I'm seeing he's not changing. So tell him to stop doing television, because that's just going to help the shape on against your child. And it's not going to help you or your child or anything. But you're constantly telling your child like the mother of Sofia, Anna, thoroughly emphasizing to them that if you're learning this knowledge, and it's not changing you, it's not making a difference in you, then something is wrong. The answer to that is

00:10:47--> 00:11:22

not to stop seeking knowledge. But the answer to that is to go back to your near correct yourself, and to turn to allies or gel and to renew your near. Of course, if the knowledge is voluntary, yes, it could be a case this person says will love this knowledge didn't benefit me. It's harming me because it's not changing me, I'm not improving. So you know, I'm going to go to a different aspect of that knowledge go to a different area, different field. But if we're talking about the knowledge that is obligatory upon every Muslim, you don't have an option to leave it. But if you don't see yourself making changes, if you don't see yourself getting closer to Allah, then you have to ask

00:11:22--> 00:11:52

yourself, why am I getting this knowledge? And how can I take capital just so I can become busy and become preoccupied with numbers to memorize more, and I've learned more and I've sat more and I've studied more. But ultimately, what does that mean? If it doesn't make you actually change? And in this we're going to call it an eye and the eye is in sort of Tsar Allah azzawajal said and men who are corny when laid surgery don't walk or email

00:11:54--> 00:12:10

Yeah, that will heal right away. Oh, to draw rock metal I'll be cool hell yes, that we live in a lm una leadin Allah Allah mon Eliza gel, he told us as for the one who is standing obediently, all throughout the night,

00:12:12--> 00:12:16

the person standing all throughout the night in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:12:18--> 00:12:20

And that person is

00:12:21--> 00:12:24

hoping for what is with Elias

00:12:25--> 00:12:44

fearing the hereafter hoping for the mercy of their Lord, the person who is in that situation and what kind into an honor and lead standing in obedience that night, sadly, don't walk hakima in a state of prostrating and standing up in the you know, in the, in the frustration

00:12:45--> 00:12:59

and that person is fearing the hereafter and hoping for the mercy of their Lord and then Allah said, holy hell yes, that will Medina Allah moon, we're letting Allah Allah moon, see all those who know equal to those who don't know, hey, what's the evidence here?

00:13:01--> 00:13:43

The evidence here or the wedge, a lot of the reason the reason why we brought this here, this ayah here is a lot of describe knowledge in terms of what the knowledge knowing versus not knowing in terms of what in terms of action. Knowledge means you stand that night in prayer. Knowledge means you fear the Hereafter, what will happen, knowledge means that you hope in the mercy of your Lord. Knowledge means that you submit to Allah. That's the difference between a levy and Ala Moana will lead in a light animal, as for the one who just gathers ijazat or gathers qualifications or just gathers knowledge for knowledge sake, this person is not described with knowledge, Arsalan, this

00:13:43--> 00:14:04

person is not to scribe your knowledge, lie, Your call is not said about that person, that they have knowledge. You don't say to that person that that person has knowledge. Knowledge is only to the extent that you act upon it. And that's a lesson we have to drill into our children. Look at what she said this is the mother of Sophia thodi

00:14:05--> 00:14:48

Rahim, Allah tala. And what will make you know, perhaps she received all of the benefits and all of the edge of from the huge efforts that have funded perhaps that's the case perhaps you received all of the benefits from that, because she sent out her son and she said to him go and write 10 Hadeeth some narration she said to him go and write 10 letters. And if you see that this has changed you change the way you behave the way you are the manners or the way you fear a lie. You see a change in yourself, then this is for you not you know go write 10 more and if not, then know that this knowledge is harming you. It's not actually benefiting you. And that's an excellent lesson we can

00:14:48--> 00:15:00

still in our children, you go to the school you learn to iron you learn to Howdy. What is this Heidi done for you? What has changed for you? What's different for you? What have you learned? What are you doing?

00:15:00--> 00:15:33

doing today that you didn't do yesterday. And yes, yet, if we see that our children are not changing, it's not stop going to school, stop learning stop going, you know, stop memorizing. But it's a case that we tell them. And we continue to emphasize to them that the only benefit in knowledge is that which you act upon and implement. And now we're going to come to the last point that I'm going to discuss with you, but it's going to be a little bit of a long one. So it's going to take a little bit of time to go through. And that is that your children, they need a roadmap. They need a roadmap, sometimes you call it

00:15:35--> 00:15:45

a curriculum, they need a roadmap, if you were to leave anyone and say, go and become a scholar,

00:15:46--> 00:16:32

go on become a scholar will lie you will see the person will not support a lot. 11 Rahim Allah except the one Allah has mercy on, that person will not even be able to reach outside of their home for the confusion they will be in you'll see them going backwards and forwards and inside and outside. You know, like halen, they have no understand like last. Because if you don't have a roadmap of how to achieve something, then how would you ever hope to achieve it. And that's why some of the some of the the scholars of the past, they said that it's not a lack of intelligence, that that is the reason I'm paraphrasing. It's not a lack of intelligence. That's the reason why most

00:16:32--> 00:16:38

people don't achieve knowledge, or don't get the knowledge they want. They don't become what they want to become.

00:16:39--> 00:17:21

It's not a lack of intelligence. But it is not knowing the way to learn. And I also can relate to this when I when I first started studying, and when I went to the Islamic University of Medina, I remember, like I remember, and the university was so helpful, providing all those resources. But still, even though the university was there, providing those resources, I still felt lost, I still felt like huge amounts of my efforts were being wasted, like the person who is running, and like on a treadmill, you know, you're running and running and running, but you're not moving anywhere, you never went anywhere. I had that feeling many times.

00:17:22--> 00:18:06

And then I came across some of the books, in which the scholar spoke about seeking knowledge and how to seek knowledge. And sapan law, I realized from those books, and I appreciate it, that the problem was actually that I didn't have a roadmap, not a real roadmap. I mean, no doubt, the University provided amazing resources in terms of study materials, teachers, I didn't have a roadmap for where I wanted to go. And the purpose of that roadmap is not that I've reached the end of it. So Paula, I haven't even reached the beginning, you know that? The very first stage of it. But ultimately, if you have a roadmap, you can see what's ahead of you, you can see what I need to do. What do extra Do

00:18:06--> 00:18:43

I need to learn where which books Am I going to study otherwise will lie, you can go into a library, put your child in a library and just say, become a scholar? How do they know out of the 1000s of books, maybe hundreds of 1000s of books in that library, which one is going to make them a scholar, which one is going to make them a serious student of knowledge, which one is going to progress them or which one's going to set them back? Which one of them is going to be a waste of time and which one of those is going to be a benefit? How would they know that if they don't have a roadmap on where to go? You can't memorize everything, right? Your Health has a limit, even the one who is you

00:18:43--> 00:19:27

know, I have mcilvain II, they have better memorization than others. You can't memorize everything. So that means that you need to now have a roadmap of what to memorize and what to understand. So ultimately, all the things we've mentioned in the last few episodes, regarding your children, it all comes down to this, giving them a roadmap for seeking knowledge. And like we said, the end of the day, whether where you reach on that road that's in the hands of a lot. So if you work hard, put your trust in Allah turn to Allah ask Allah, you know, the end of the day, we can't promise any one where any one person will reach on that road. But at least if you have a roadmap, the thing that

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

will it will be the fact that you got lost was the reason why you didn't win the race or why you didn't achieve what you wanted to achieve, which is the case for so many people. And also Paula, they have the strength to get to their destination. They have the intellect to get to their destination, they have the abilities to get to their destination. But because they didn't know the right way to go, to example is like two people in a race. One person was fast and strong. The other one wasn't quite so fast or quite so strong. But the one was fast and strong. Didn't know the way to go. So they ran

00:20:00--> 00:20:30

All the way a long way around, and they ended up not getting to where they wanted to go. And perhaps they wouldn't even get beyond the spotlight, because they didn't have a roadmap. So this being a short episode, not being a long episode, and this is not a course of analyze causes, has has grown to become more than I thought it would be. What do you like? But because this is not the course to talk about the details of this and the individual points on this, and this is something that we would shut off to either

00:20:32--> 00:20:42

direct people towards the other content that we have with regard to matters or Maria. But what can we give the parents as an overview of this roadmap?

00:20:43--> 00:21:30

How can we, in a few minutes, give the parents an overview of this roadmap? So as the ability or him allowed to add in his Elvia, he has a couple of lines of poetry in which he basically gives you the roadmap immaculately, very beautifully in just a couple of lines. So to be honest, if you memorize them, it will be good for you because we said about health and, and fat memorization and understanding. He said, fam, how are you Hi, fi elfi center shuksan farhood Minh Cooley fanning our center behalf the metaline jermy ngurah je tat hoodoo Hoover Allah movida now say

00:21:32--> 00:22:26

he said, firmer how Elia taffy elfi Center. Shazam. He said that a person will not be able to reach the the end the Gaia of knowledge in 1000 years. If I said to you to read every book that the scholars of Islam have written and memorize every statement that the scholars of Islam have made and memorize all of that Hadith have come to us and the explanation of those or hide even the tifosi that have come to us and the explanation of them. In 1000 years, you would not reach a destination, you wouldn't be able to achieve it in 1000 years, let alone between 60 and 70 years, which is the average age of the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And if you say that a person starts

00:22:26--> 00:23:13

at, you know, 10 years old, or seven years old, or five years old, parlor, maybe a person only has 60 years of learning. And in 1000 years, they couldn't reach it. So what should you do for hoodman defending asset, so from every single branch of knowledge, take the best of it. So first of all, what we want to take here is that zubeida Rahim Allah to Allah He divides knowledge into fullmoon. He divides Islamic knowledge into branches. And that is how Islamic knowledge is, Islamic knowledge is not one big topic, Islam. It's lots of little branches. And that's the first thing you need to do to become a pilot is to appreciate that Islamic knowledge is not one topic. In a very basic level.

00:23:14--> 00:23:57

We do things like Islamic Studies, in we teach our children Islamic Studies, which kind of gives you the impression that all of Islam is one topic, but that's not actually what it is. It is actually many different fullmoon many different sciences. So let's look at just some of the sciences. The Quran, is a science and even the Quran can be broken down into sub sciences as it relates to a normal core and like a multi FC or a knowledge of FC or what is commonly today called aroma and the knowledge about the Quran, in terms of how it was preserved, written, the different styles of citation and so on. If we look at just for example, I'm just picking I'm not going comprehensively

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

if we look at for example Howdy,

00:23:59--> 00:24:49

then you have a Hadeeth relating to follow relating to virtues, the virtues of doing good deeds, you have a hadith relating to an outcome, you have the joma two big books of Hadith to put up a sector for example, and then you have also a Hadeeth that you have the science of Heidi and the supporting sciences that relate to masala Heidi, things like the the science of what makes a Heidi soy and what makes a Heidi 34 what makes a Heidi house and and so on. All of this are these are can be divided into some kind of sub sciences. Likewise, even the Arabic language can be sub divided, we talk about a narrow a self, below her and so on all the different sciences of Arabic And there are other ways

00:24:49--> 00:24:56

the purpose here is not to list all of the different sciences also can be divided up you have

00:24:57--> 00:25:00

in terms of the the madhhab studying a method with

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

Career curriculum in order, and then you have the soul the principles that collide. Here, the principles of fifth, you have the fundamental science of physics that that, and that's kind of underpins the science or you have alongside that mikaze Acharya,

00:25:17--> 00:25:42

you have the purposes behind Islamic legislation. So the perp The point is that Islam is not one topic. It's not just one thing, Islam, it can be broken down. And different scholars break it down in in slightly different ways. But ultimately, generally speaking, it's broken down into a series of, of subjects, or funan.

00:25:44--> 00:26:03

In each one of those four known each one of those subjects, each one of those sciences, we want our children to take the best of it. To take for Huth, mean, cooling, defending acid, take from every science, the best of it.

00:26:05--> 00:26:18

And what we mean by the best of it, and here, the port continues by explaining that, but what we mean by the best of it is that you're going to have to be selective, I can't read every single thing that has been written on Tafseer.

00:26:19--> 00:26:44

The seal is just one science, from the many sciences that make up Islam, I can't read everything. So I'm going to have to be selective to choose the best things that I need to remind you is not may not just be one thing, might not just be one thing, but at least I have. My focus and my energy is on certain core materials.

00:26:45--> 00:27:24

And I think that there's a couple of things I would like to highlight here that parents might do or might fall into mistakes. And number one is only giving attention to one thing, and not the other one science and not the others. So what we see is, for example, only giving attention to, for example, the Quran, in terms of health, but not giving attention to Tafseer, not giving attention to the other aspects of our own core and not giving attention to Heidi's not giving attention to or only giving attention to Phillip, and not giving attention to Hadeeth, and so on, you have to have all of the sciences at a basic level. And that doesn't mean that you have to be you have to be an

00:27:24--> 00:27:33

expert in all of them, at least not in the beginning. But in the beginning, you have to have a general understanding of all of them.

00:27:34--> 00:28:17

Not that you just have an understanding of one or two, if you want to go further down the road, if you don't want to stand at the minimum amount of knowledge, if you don't just want your children to get just the bare minimum, then your child needs to go beyond that they need to have a basic understanding of all of these different formulas and all of these different sciences. And ultimately, the material in every science, in itself will take 1000 years to finish. So how can you do it, you need the best of the material, you need the books that gather the most benefits, and the most important points. And the ones that you would say these are your core. And that's why one of

00:28:17--> 00:28:59

the benefits that we saw from some of the students of knowledge is that what they do is that this core books that they had the core books, they have the most important books, they have all the benefits they find in the other books they read, they bring them and they put them on to they write them and they transcribe them on to that those core books that they have. For example it might be in it might be something related to an app particular explanation, it might be an explanation of a particular book might be the explanation of Cotabato hate, for example, all of the benefits that person reads about ooh hear about the worship of Allah. And the tawheed of a lion is worship, they

00:28:59--> 00:29:31

go back to that explanation of Cotabato heed and they write, they write it on the margins that so they bring their knowledge to a core subset of material. And that is essential if you want your child to be really, really proficient in knowledge. And ultimately, I feel that, again, my own personal experience, and I'm happy to share that with you in terms of if you see where you know, your brothers fell short, then, you know, shout out to Allah, you guys won't fall into that same mistake is that so much of time is wasted

00:29:32--> 00:29:59

in material that isn't from the core material. And ultimately, what you realize is that for all those dreams of reading, you know, 1000s of books, but ultimately, if you don't have that core material locked down and you don't really understand that core material in a very detailed way, and you're not proficient in it or that extra reading, it doesn't actually benefit you in the way that you would hope it would

00:30:00--> 00:30:49

Whereas there bit extra reading benefits, the one who has that core material, because everything is in reference to that core material. So you have to select certain books, certain texts, certain things to memorize certain explanations and put your energy and your emphasis and your effort into them, and then branch out into the complicated things, and the difficult areas, and the complicated Maasai, and the burrows aimia the research, but until you've got that core locked down, and you really understand the core of that knowledge, all of the extra stuff is not going to benefit until you have that core. And that core means in every single science of Islam, you have the best of it.

00:30:50--> 00:30:58

The most important of it, the best of it, for hoodman cool defending acid on behalf of the metaline germier, Elliot Rodger,

00:31:00--> 00:31:45

you memorize a text, and that text is germier little Roger. So memorizing a text here, the point he is indicating Rahim Allah to Allah, that To achieve this, you can't just read just reading is not enough. No, I read this book, I read this explanation. You have to choose certain things to memorize. But you have to be picky for Whitman cool defending AXA, take the best of every science, you have to be picky. Now, you can't just memorize everything. Because most of us don't have that ability to just memorize everything like that. Instead, what we have to do is be selective about what we memorize. So So Paula, again, I see that a lot of the times you see the students have no

00:31:45--> 00:32:37

starting off, memorizing lots and lots of things. And maybe even some of their teachers are encouraging them to memorize and memorize. And they run out of steam. And they end up memorizing lots of things in one fell swoop in one science, but maybe not necessarily the best of it. So again, focusing on having a small text, or a medium sized text, in every science, that you memorize the and you understand it. And if you want to go to the maximum level in that, and you memorize something like an alpha in every science, then you know this would be really useful for someone to someone would really have gathered a great deal of knowledge through that, through memorizing, for example,

00:32:37--> 00:33:24

1000 lines in every science, that would be among the you know, the the upper, sort of towards the upper limits, that a person memorizes like 1000 lines in every science, for example. And of course, there will be people who do more than that, don't get me wrong, that you have at least one small, and maybe one medium size, text memorized in every science. This will give you the foundation to be able to succeed, and it's what will give your children the foundation to be able to succeed. But this text that you choose, there are so many options, which one do we choose? It has to be germier Dr. Raja, it has to gather together has to be Jeremy, Roger, and Roger means the correct it can be

00:33:24--> 00:34:11

the correct opinion or the preferred opinion. Now, what we take from this one of the benefits we take from this behalf the method in German and Dr. Roger heat, is that we should stick to the books and the texts that are well accepted, that are comprehensive, and they have wide acceptance, it shouldn't be the case that we encourage our children to memorize things that are rare, and not heard of. Rather, we should memorize that those those texts that are have wide acceptance. So for example, there are many, many books on the Hadith of the Hadees of rulings, many books, but you rarely can find a book that has the acceptance of Bulu Homura, for example, that it's just so widely accepted

00:34:12--> 00:34:56

around the world. So many people, so many explanations. So many people teaching it so many people memorizing it, so many explanations of it. So this would be a good candidate of what we would call a meten, which is Jeremy Rogers text which gathers together and it has within it the conditions of acceptance. In other words, it's widely accepted. And sometimes upon law, we even encourage the memorization of a text where there might be a better text. But because the other the first one that we're recommending to people, this text is considered to be the standard the de facto standard that everybody goes upon. There might be better books. We give an example in salt, water hot and what

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

occurred which is a fundamental basic level.

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

text in Seoul, there are better texts in Australia than and what are caught, there are better texts and I'm talking about even at a basic level, there are better things that have been written in, in in a better way. But none of them have the acceptance of Al Walcott. That wide acceptance that they have been accepted and taught and explained by so many people all over the world. So you try to focus on those texts that have wide acceptance that the children can really tie themselves to that text. And even though that text might not be perfect in the sense that it has some faults and issues, and maybe it doesn't cover everything, but it's got the acceptance to find all explanations

00:35:42--> 00:35:43

and teachers and so on.

00:35:44--> 00:36:09

But this text The child takes, who should they take it from? Who do who move feedin. Now say, you take it from the one who is going to benefit you, and the one who is now a sincere advisor to you. And this brings us to the last part, that when it comes to this core material, it's vital that your children take this core material from a qualified teacher,

00:36:11--> 00:36:55

a teacher who is sincere, wanting benefit for them, and a teacher who is more feed who is qualified to benefit them. And hamdulillah again, come back to the role of madrasa tutor Maria, and the hope that madrasa tutor Maria can fill that stepping stone and be have a place on that road for those students inshallah to Allah to be able to bring this knowledge to them in the English language, to summarize it for them and present it to them, for people who English as their first language, and to build them up to the level that they can go and benefit from the scholars having that fundamental base there for themselves, and then going and benefiting from those scholars and, and gaining that

00:36:55--> 00:36:57

knowledge from its people.

00:36:58--> 00:37:42

And, again, here, we're not saying that you don't study advanced things from the scholars, of course, we study all of all of our things we take from our Michelle from law scholars, but ultimately, the core material, this is where you really need it, you need to have taken that core material from your teacher. And then from then on, you go on, and you continue to go back to your teacher and learn. And you also do your own research and reading and so on. But that core material comes from a qualified teacher, that's what's really, really important. So this really just summarized for you the, if you like the overview as a parent of what your child needs to do an

00:37:42--> 00:38:21

overview, and I would strongly strongly encourage you once again, that if you haven't signed up and registered to Elementor, Rossiter, Maria, please do so. Because insha Allah to Allah the project is there's a lot of things coming up in the future inshallah. inshallah Allah be in the library, there are so many things coming up in the future to help facilitate this for you. But inshallah, I've hope I've given you an an understanding an idea, a roadmap of how your child is going to go about it, you're going to break Islam down into sciences. So as a parent, you might say, Well, I don't know TFC I don't know, Heidi, I don't normally start I don't know, sort of no problem, but you've got

00:38:21--> 00:39:03

that written down. Now. Okay, where's my child learning? Tafseer? Where's my challenging Hadeeth? Where's my challenge was stolen Howdy, what's my roadmap, so in reality is not one roadmap, it's like a roadmap in every individual science until they have the core material. And once they have that core material, and you have given them the essentials of the Arabic language, then you take that child and you can put them with the scholars and the people of knowledge, and that child will flourish and grow inshallah. Now this brings me just to my very last point, which I think is very important. I know, we kind of run out of time in terms of the episode, but I believe this is really

00:39:03--> 00:39:51

important. And that is the role of the Arabic language. Ultimately, if our children were to speak Arabic fluently from a very young age, we would not need as much or we would not have as much difficulty of this, you know, trying to find a means to get this knowledge to them because the Arabic language is ultimately what opens up for you. The the opportunity to seek knowledge. And I don't mean just a basic understanding, just being able to speak it like in the street, being able to order a cup of tea or being able to, you know, go to the supermarket, but really detailed in depth knowledge of classical Arabic, this is one half of the road to being a scholar. So ultimately, as a

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

parent also we have to have a program for our children to learn Arabic. We have to have a way for our children to learn Arabic and

00:40:00--> 00:40:28

There are many again many different options. There are classes there are different books there are different online options. Once again we'd advise just stay in touch with madrasa tutor Maria we've got a lot of things prepared in that regard inshallah, to Allah and that's something personally I've been, you know, I'm really passionate about that I really, really believe that. One of the greatest gifts we can give to our children is to give them the gift of Arabic language and if we give them the gift of Arabic language and those basic fundamental knowledge in each science

00:40:29--> 00:40:51

and inshallah to Allah, there is no limit to what our children can achieve. inshallah to Allah. That's what Allah made easy for me to mention. And Allah knows best wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi h my Salaam Alaikum.
