smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah MBA he was he did a lot of saline and the Vienna Mohammed was early he was soft v Jemaine.

00:00:14 --> 00:00:16

So beginner with sorta to the bacara

00:00:17 --> 00:00:21

which is a knockout of the cow. And

00:00:22 --> 00:00:25

this chapter is a Madonna chapter in its entirety,

00:00:27 --> 00:00:30

by all is revealed in Almudena

00:00:32 --> 00:00:36

and there's no difference of opinion that it is considered a disorder

00:00:37 --> 00:00:39

as opposed to being a murky solar.

00:00:49 --> 00:00:52

Now, there are some further virtues of sort of abakada

00:00:54 --> 00:00:55

in which

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

find the Hadeeth and the Muslim Imam Ahmed

00:01:00 --> 00:01:02

and also in the Sahih Muslim

00:01:03 --> 00:01:17

that and Wu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, on the authority of Abba hora de la and lethargy Aloo otaku Bora for in beta lady took Rafi hisuite tillbaka hula hula who shavon

00:01:18 --> 00:01:26

but do not turn your houses integrates very leadership and does not enter the house where sorta tel Baqarah is recited

00:01:29 --> 00:01:32

and also Abdullayev and Mr. owed rhodiola and

00:01:33 --> 00:01:40

he said that the shavon flees from the house, where Surah Al Baqarah is recited

00:01:42 --> 00:01:54

in the shavon are your Federal Minister Beatty livius? Yes, Murphy Surah Al Baqarah. Saudis is found in, in unnecessary in his book, ammo Leo Malila.

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

There's also

00:02:02 --> 00:02:03

a hadith

00:02:04 --> 00:02:05

in which

00:02:07 --> 00:02:11

salidroside generates and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:02:12 --> 00:02:17

that everything has its peak liquidity, Shea ncnm everything has a peak,

00:02:18 --> 00:02:24

and that the peak of the hot urn is Al Baqarah. And that whoever reads it in his house

00:02:25 --> 00:02:43

in a night, that the shape one will not enter that home for three nights. Now there are some barf there are some weakness in this hadith. The latter part of the Hadith can be verified in other places, or that the shaitaan will not enter a home for three days, in which sort of and buckler is recited

00:02:49 --> 00:02:52

also concerning the virtues of sorta tillbaka

00:02:54 --> 00:02:55

that there is a hadith

00:02:57 --> 00:03:00

which is found again in the Muslim world of Eman

00:03:04 --> 00:03:05

in which

00:03:06 --> 00:03:08

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:09 --> 00:03:18

he said to Allah more Surah Baqarah for in Baraka, wa taraka Hazara wala testa, 300 baht Allah.

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

This Hadith is narrated by bowrider odilon, in which the meaning of the Hadith is lawhead, the messenger sallallahu eilersen said, say learn Surah Al Baqarah. For in taking it I'm memorizing there is a great blessing.

00:03:35 --> 00:03:38

And the leaving of it, there was a great sorrow or regret for a person

00:03:39 --> 00:03:44

and the magician, sorceress will never be able to memorize it.

00:03:47 --> 00:03:50

All of them a second set and then he remained quiet for a while.

00:03:52 --> 00:03:54

And then he said a lot who it was sent him said again.

00:03:55 --> 00:04:00

Learn Surah Al Baqarah. While early Emraan as well,

00:04:01 --> 00:04:06

for both of them are like two bright clouds

00:04:08 --> 00:04:09

that they will cover

00:04:10 --> 00:04:17

the individual on the day of judgment as though they are like hamama 10

00:04:18 --> 00:04:19

Oh hi 10

00:04:21 --> 00:04:23

Alabama 10 or like two clouds

00:04:24 --> 00:04:26

and via turn, like

00:04:28 --> 00:04:30

two lights, says two different meanings.

00:04:31 --> 00:04:37

Both meaning that there was a great blessing for the individual who could memorize both surratt and bacara and

00:04:39 --> 00:04:40

early in Milan.

00:04:41 --> 00:04:47

So as a Hello World he or two like to money on two lights for that person. And

00:04:48 --> 00:04:53

Korea is that what will cloud or shade that person on the Day of Judgment

00:04:55 --> 00:04:56

is also mentioned

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

in that narration

00:05:01 --> 00:05:07

But he will come to that person like so for for like rows of birds for that person.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:20

So the integrations in the different wordings so there's a great person for the individual who memorizes or learns sorted and Bukhara on the Day of Judgment.

00:05:23 --> 00:05:28

Again, there was another Hadith, that demand Mohammed Rahim Allah that He rates by that I will not

00:05:30 --> 00:05:34

narrated to them that Bishop no more herget said that Abdullah hypno bowrider

00:05:36 --> 00:05:48

narrated for him or to him from his father, that I was sitting with an abuse Allah who it was element is the part I've just mentioned, is that there's also an extension of that same Hadith as well.

00:05:50 --> 00:05:59

In which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said concerning the Quran, that are the judgment that the judgment I'll call earn will ask that person

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

or the Quran will meet its companion in the shape of a pale faced man on the Day of Resurrection, when his grave is opened.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:24

And the urn will ask him Do you know me the man will say, I do not know who you are. No one will say I am your companion. The Koran which has bought you thirst during the heat and made you stay up during the night.

00:06:25 --> 00:07:04

Every merchant has his certain trade. But to this day, you're behind all types of trade. kingship will be then given to him in his right hand, eternal life in his left hand and the crown of grace will be placed on his head. His parents will also be given or granted to garments that the people of this life could never afford, they will say we will granted with these garments, it will be said because your son was carrying the heart and it will reset to the reader of the Koran read and ascend through the levels of gender and he will go on ascending as long as he recites whether reciting slowly or quickly

00:07:06 --> 00:07:07

again this idea is in Muslim.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:21

So here the Quran will approach and speak to that person and bring them to blessings if they were a carrier of the Quran. So it shows the importance of memorizing and learning Al Quran.

00:07:23 --> 00:07:24

And again, in another Hadith,

00:07:26 --> 00:07:29

this is a part of this hadith is also supported by other narrations.

00:07:30 --> 00:07:32

For instance, again, in the Muslim Imam I heard

00:07:33 --> 00:08:03

that Abu Imam and bear helia read the Allahu anhu. He said that here you heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, read the Quran, because it will intercede on behalf of its people on the Day of Judgment, or the day resurrection. Read the two lights, Al Baqarah and early Emraan because they will come in the shape of two clouds two shades or two lines of birds of the day resurrection. And they will argue on behalf of the people on that day.

00:08:08 --> 00:08:09

So these are some of the

00:08:10 --> 00:08:20

furball or the virtues and blessings of of sawtell Bukhara and of course we included suit as a moron in that there was mentioned in those narrations

00:08:21 --> 00:08:36

and now we go on to after mentioning some of those virtues and that it is a Minnesota we begin the chapter with Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim and the first AR with I never done this before but we're going to do it again inshallah tada with some some more information on that channel.

00:08:38 --> 00:08:48

Well, lots of panatela begins by saying Alif laam Meem these three letters in which many of them are first your own have different over

00:08:50 --> 00:08:59

some of them have said as even Kathy estates here mister federal law, how big they are, that was the last panel data is hidden from us with his knowledge

00:09:00 --> 00:09:05

and that they did not attempt to make Tafseer to explain their meanings.

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


00:09:10 --> 00:09:22

you can essentially say that there are four different opinions concerning their meanings. The wisdom of their placement is a different issue. Okay, the wisdom of the placement of these letters is something else we'll just go discuss shortly after,

00:09:23 --> 00:09:24

but as for the meaning,

00:09:26 --> 00:09:27

the first opinion is that

00:09:28 --> 00:09:30

that they have a meaning.

00:09:31 --> 00:09:33

Opinion number one is that they have a meaning

00:09:34 --> 00:09:39

and are those who say that it has a meaning they differ amongst themselves.

00:09:40 --> 00:09:47

Some say it is from the names of a law. Some say it is from the names of even the chapter.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

So the first opinion is that they have a meaning. And within that opinion there are different opinions as to what that meaning is, whether it is the names of Allah or the names of the chapters.

00:10:02 --> 00:10:08

The second opinion is that they are letters which have no meaning.

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

They are letters which have no meaning

00:10:13 --> 00:10:20

at all when you read Elif, and lamb, and that doesn't have a meaning directly to you, you don't understand the meaning from that.

00:10:23 --> 00:10:25

The third meaning, or the third

00:10:26 --> 00:10:31

opinion, is that, that they have a meaning but only Allah knows that.

00:10:33 --> 00:10:43

Okay, which is one of the opinions that didn't get here, why moloi mentions, they have a meaning however, it is only a larger law, Allah who knows that opinion, or knows the meaning of that.

00:10:45 --> 00:10:49

The fourth view is that we don't say anything.

00:10:52 --> 00:11:01

And you do not go more or you do not go beyond except reciting those letters. We don't talk about meaning whether it has a meaning or not. We just stop.

00:11:03 --> 00:11:08

Allow Allah does it have a meaning doesn't have a meaning? Allow Adam, we don't know

00:11:12 --> 00:11:12

what else

00:11:15 --> 00:11:27

the strongest of the opinions will lie in the opinion as well of shared of no theming it is allowed a funny the second opinion is that the letters themselves when you read them don't have a meaning to you. They don't have a meaning.

00:11:28 --> 00:11:33

It Lacan, Leyzaola and then interlock and they they don't have a meaning.

00:11:38 --> 00:11:47

Well, how did how to overlay Salah hammer and then follow what a lot of you in the way that they are formed like this, that they do not have a meaning in the Arabic language in the way that they are formed like this.

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

As for the hekima was for their wisdom, which is a secondary issue. Another issue, the wisdom of the placement of these hurdles, in which there are 14 letters that are used out of the Arabic language out of the 28. There are 14

00:12:11 --> 00:12:24

so that's half of the Arabic letters that are used, that you find in 29 different chapters into the Quran. So there are 29 chapters in the urn in which you find that they begin with letters.

00:12:25 --> 00:12:29

And how many letters 14 out of the 28

00:12:31 --> 00:12:39

How can you remember these 14 lessons? These 14 letters in a word could not Swan Hakeem Cartier on level zero.

00:12:41 --> 00:13:08

This is a sequence of words. That doesn't have a great meaning. Nothing Hakeem, you know why statement nosson Hakeem is known Saad Hakeem Harker. Yeah, meme carpet absolute or cut off Elif for iron, Lou lamb, her sera Senora it has a secret without any doubt a must on Hakeem

00:13:10 --> 00:13:11

party on

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


00:13:14 --> 00:13:24

so if you memorize that little few words, you remember your memorize all the letters that you find at the beginning of those chapters.

00:13:28 --> 00:13:36

As What the heck am I the wisdom and the amount of time I'm allowed to add I mentioned a number of wisdoms concerning the placement of these letters

00:13:38 --> 00:13:53

before the chapters now you do find and it's something you need to pay attention to closely is that whenever you do find at the beginning of any chapter these letters, you find that the Quran either directly or indirectly is mentioned.

00:13:54 --> 00:13:55


00:13:56 --> 00:14:12

So, whether the shorter begins with Alif Lam Meem Elif murrah her name, curve her Yeah, I installed you'll find that the Quran is mentioned directly or indirectly after that.

00:14:16 --> 00:14:21

Sort of tillbaka Alif Lam Meem wehrli Cal keytab. This book is the Quran

00:14:23 --> 00:14:31

and you go to the beginning of sort of Milan Alif Lam, Meem Allahu Allah, you know, in the whole yom Nasrallah, Allah Al Kitab.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:39

The Quran is mentioned directly harming 10 zero mineral Rafi mill mineral of mana Rahim.

00:14:41 --> 00:14:48

So this is either directly or indirectly that it is mentioning the Quran

00:14:50 --> 00:14:50


00:14:52 --> 00:15:00

the fact that that these letters that they are placed at the beginning of these chapters and bearing in mind as a machete or Himalayan mentioned

00:15:01 --> 00:15:19

That these 14 different letters include the different levels and the different ways that one can say the Arabic letters, some of them are soft, some are loud, some are hard, some are quiet. So it covers all the different sounds in the Arabic language

00:15:20 --> 00:15:29

using these 14 letters, now some of the aroma that they said that Allah subhanaw taala began the chapters

00:15:31 --> 00:15:32


00:15:33 --> 00:15:51

with these letters, because liftoff, the Harley as a smile machine, they will open the hearing of the machine, they would hear these letters and immediately it would take their attention that here it is that they were listening to something which was not normal to them.

00:15:53 --> 00:15:54

This is one opinion.

00:15:57 --> 00:15:59

injuria Rahim Allah Allah He says

00:16:01 --> 00:16:02

that this is one of the weaker opinions.

00:16:05 --> 00:16:22

Because if this was the case, to get the attention of the machete corn, then you would probably find what need to find found that there should be letters at the beginning of all of the chapters to ensure that the machine can listen to all of the chapters and not only those chapters that you find that there are letters.

00:16:37 --> 00:16:48

Also what is mentioned concerning the hikma or the wisdom is that Allah subhanaw taala places these letters, which we said in themselves don't have a meaning. However,

00:16:50 --> 00:16:51

this is

00:16:53 --> 00:16:58

one of the miraculous aspects or the miraculous nature's of the Quran,

00:16:59 --> 00:17:03

that the disbelievers or anyone from the creation cannot bring anything

00:17:05 --> 00:17:07

equal or like the Quran

00:17:09 --> 00:17:11

as everyone can hear him or louder and he says

00:17:12 --> 00:17:36

that are called when he said he also mentions another opinion. But these letters they were mentioned by last count Ireland at the beginning of each of the these 29 chapters be honestly ages by earn only ages and Quran to clarify and make clear the miraculous nature of the Quran, wonderful Hulk argies rune and that the creation is unable

00:17:38 --> 00:17:43

to bring anything that would dispute the authority of of the Quran.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:56

And he also quotes a meme of Rosie and his teacher share what he's learned even t Mia Rahim Allah, Allah also alluding to similar

00:17:57 --> 00:17:58

a similar point.

00:18:01 --> 00:18:32

He mentions also another point that they're mentioning all these letters at the beginning of the pot and come in different forms. Sometimes you find the letter as mentioned, singular, like sod, noon, and cough. And other times you might may find the letters I mentioned in twos, like her meme. And other times you may find these letters mentioned in threes, like Alif Lam, Meem. And other times you may find that as I mentioned in force, like lF lors meme sought.

00:18:33 --> 00:18:41

And also, you may find five letters, as you find at the beginning of sort of medium calf hair. Yeah, I mean, it's not

00:18:49 --> 00:18:57

like hey, we're going to stop in Charlotte and this was just a brief introduction to sort of the Bakara some of its virtues some of its blessings and

00:18:58 --> 00:19:16

the meaning of the The first area but even later Allah the next lesson, we'll start with a&m metu wehrli, Kalki taboola Riba he was talking to Zack manohara wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad Ali earlier he was at MoMA Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
