first the idea of the Quran as the

miracle of Islam Islam is is fascinating

in that we have before us the miracle of

the Prophet sallallahu sanim and like

the miracles that we read about in the

Quran that are taken based on faith such

as the miracle of moosa a.s a time when

he thrust down his staff and it became a

haya a snake and the miracle of the ISA

is to them who brought the living to the

dead or dead to the living or the bird

that he fashioned from clay and then it

was given life by the power of Allah

these are miracles that people

experienced at that time and some people

would contend that they have a type of

what's called tolet or or because

there's such a vast chain of

transmission of these miracles that they

can be accepted on that value but we

would believe in them because they're

mentioned in the Quran but the Quran

itself is the miracle of the Prophet

this is the triumphant miracle that the

prophets alighted some was given one of

the poets put it best when he said a

hookah ISA that a matin for Carmela your

brother isa al salam he called the dead

and they became they answered him and

they stood up one Tov Gaeta

as Yellin mine'll Adam II but you have

brought generations back to life the

prophet sallallaahu Slim's miracle is

that his book is with us to this day

track to thicken and rainy Matta

mastectomy hemolymph illumined by the

abbe de Quito Allah was from the sea I

have left two things with you as long as

you adhere to them cling to them hold to

them you will never go straight The Book

of Allah and

sooner and the sooner is in reality an

explanation of the book of Allah it is

an explanation of the book of Allah the

prophet saww license life is a tough

sear a commentary on the Book of Allah

so beautifully articulated by Aisha when

she was asked how was the character of

before the prophets Eliza me she said

Kenneth Oppel Quran his character was

the Quran were in the katana horican

oven you are on a vast character a vast

ethos the Quran can be really summed up

in one statement that even Jews a says

in his table Sarah says here he says

that it is the call of creation the

invitation of the creation to the

worship of al Haq the truth which is

Allah subhana WA Ta'ala now this

invitation is exactly that it is is an

invitation Dawa in the Islamic tradition

is an invitation we invite people we

have never historically have never

outside of the arabian peninsula have

never forced anyone to become muslim

this is historically documented nowhere

has a Muslim held a sword over

somebody's head outside of the arabian

peninsula and say become a muslim or you

die this is simply falsification of

history other religions have been

notoriously known for doing that the

muslims have never done that and the

reason that they have

then that is because the power-on is an

invitation it's a gala

the Muslims know what that one means it

means literally to invite a druid a

sevillio bigger better hikmah one more

that that has a call invite to the way

of your Lord in the best way with wisdom

and in the best exhaustion the best

exhortation this is the message that

Islam has gone out and spread to people

so if we look at the Quran as a

invitation it is a Dawa we can see there

is a beautiful hadith that articulates

this and gives a different nuance to

this idea the Quran is the medulla of

Allah subhana WA Ta'ala in the creation

in this earth

dooba in the Arabic language means a

place it theirs to rewire two

transmissions one is Madiba and one is

Madiba the medulla is a banquet in which

a king sets forth and invites those

worthy of the invitation to his banquet

and they must have the proper and

requisite Edel in order to enter into

the the tent of the king and this the

Quran is the banquet of Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala in his earth the other area which

is also sound calls it Madiba

if you look at the word matter but it is

what they call ISM I can in the Arabic

language it's the place where one

acquires Adele and EDA is that which

makes us human the prophet sallallaahu

sanam said the best of what a parent

gives to his child or her child is a dub

hassle is good at up this is the best

and highest

thing that a human being can give to his

child is good Adam and the prophets

Eliza and in a hadith that is has some

weakness some people called moon car but

it's by the consensus of the Ummah the

the meaning is sound at debonair rugby

Roxanna DB My Lord has given me a dub

and how excellent he made my adapt the

word Arab in Arabic means courtesy and

it's a deep courtesy it's a spiritual

courtesy and this is what the Quran in

it is a place where we learn the

requisite courtesies in order to be

fully human and those courtesies are

beautifully demo kated by our scholars

in the two sections of sip which are a

bad ads when more amal at the courtesies

between the slave and his lord which is

called badet or the acts of worship and

the courtesies between the slave and

creation which are called more amulet or

the human transactions allah subhanho wa

taala has given guidance in both of

these when we look in the the idea of a

Veda a better has two aspects the first

is al-qaeda and the second is a calm

there are peda can be broken off again

into two branches one of the sicknesses

of the age is an obsession with al-qaeda

which in using Western terminology which

would go into the category of what they

call kerygma or rules of which you learn

the updater is not complicated it's

something that can be learned very fast

the update of America Howie is a

beautiful al Qaeda of which the OMA has

agreed upon it can be learned very

quickly but the RP that must be seen as

three essential aspects and all what we

say we say Allah is one we say Allah has

no likeness we say Allah has not give

birth does not give birth these are

aspects of the RK that which we

articulate and then there

Javad a belief in the heart that

al-qaeda must penetrate the heart it

cannot simply remain at the level of

ratiocination at the level of the

intellect it has to transcend the

intellect and enter into the heart and

directly impact the heart and this is

what manifests human behavior at the

level that a Muslim is demanded to show

and this is where the Rp that then

permeates every cell of the body and the

human beings behavior shows that he is a

Muslim that he is a Muslim lonna madona

welcome America we have our actions and

you have our actions it is actions that

deed that distinguish human beings and

nothing else it is the actions which

distinguish human beings based on their

understanding because actions emanate

from understandings and not vice versa

and this is very clearly understood in

modern social sciences and I would

recommend studying the concept of

cognitive dissonance which is a

beautiful a beautiful insight which the

Quran gave us centuries before I haven't

found really any insights in my own

personal studies of modern Sciences

except that I found already either

explicitly articulated in the Quran and

the Sunnah or implicitly understood by

the scholars of Islam who came later if

you look then at what the Quran is the

Quran is is formulated on this this idea

of al-qaeda the other aspect of the

Quran which is from from the account is

how then do we get human beings how does

how does the human being get from a

stage where he is bereft and without

guidance to a stage where not only does

he understand but he is acting according

to the guidance of Allah so Panna with

Donna and this is done in

and with two very important concepts and

you can see the quran beautifully

following this pattern constantly the

first is called Talib and the second is

called Turkey in Turkey what this means

is that Allah calls us to the Book of

Allah and gives us the sound reasons for

following the Deen of Allah Subhan Allah

Tala and the benefits of following the

Deen of Allah and what will happen with

us if we follow the need of Allah the

next aspect is called Tar Heel which is

out of ah

to inspire awe Bravo the prophets are

listening in the hadith beautiful dua

that he made when he went to sleep alone

as them to an FCE take forward after

what he baked

well Chava hurry like another patent wah

but an awake I have surrendered myself

to you I have faced my home have placed

my back in your security and safety

grandpa tell what a habit an awake out

of desire for you and an out of all of

you and these are the do these are the

two sandals that the human being must

have in his life he has to have the

symbol of Raja and he has to have the

sandal of health and so he moves forward

or she moves forward in her life with

the turkey and the toheeb and this is

the balance even Masood said that the

movement is the one who the turkey

vanatter Hebe history they become equal

with him abu hamid al-ghazali of the

Llano preferred the Raja because he said

Raja engendered love and fear engendered

despair if we then look at the aspects

of the Quran there are seven identified

by even josée what are the law and who

in his test he'll the first one is there

are seven knowledge that the Quran

encompasses the first one is illumiroom

via which is the knowledge of lordship

who is

Lord who is Allah subhanAllah to Anna

who is Allah subhana WA Ta'ala Allah

tells us and declares it in the Quran

know that there is no god but allah

subhana wa ta'ala that there are no now

part of the miracle of the Quran and in

the central aspect of it is the Arabic

language the Arabic language is unique

in terms of certainly European languages

it has a unique aspect and that is that

there is no copulative verb to be in

other words when we say in English there

is no god but Allah we use the verb is

which in Arabic does not exist when we

say there is no god but Allah we say la

ilaha illa Allah there is no god but

Allah but we do not use a copy of verb

to be what this enables us to do in

language is to transcend being in other

words there is no conceptual limitations

of allah subhana wa ta'ala when we speak

about allah subhanho wa taala in the

arabic language which exists in the

english language and that is why it is

impossible to say la ilaha mola in any

other language than the Arabic language

the Quran is an Arabic revelation before

it is anything it is revealed in until

now or on an outer billion line the

Kentucky moon the lalala here is in

order that you are it's not a help like

taraji there's different types of line

that here it is it is in order that you

talking on that you become people of

intellect the Arabic language somebody

asked me why should

learn Arabic I said to increase your IQ

to increase your intellect with the

Arabic language by its nature and all

the Arabs that speak Arabic don't fall

into that because they don't speak

Quranic Arabic which is that is the

language that empowers and will

literally give the human being a much

deeper and broader understanding your

your actual understanding of existence

increases with your increase in the

knowledge of Arabic language why because

it is a true language it is a true

language in other words the language is

not simply a symbolic language in which

people have agreed on certain phrases to

use like in the English language we use

the word cat in Arabic to describe cat

or self to describe self if you look at

the actual evolution of the language

there it's these are arbitrary

distinctions in the Arabic language

there is no arbitrariness there we

believe that the Arabic language is part

of Revelation it is a Tulpa via language

that was revealed it is not a language

of which human beings agreed upon and

this is why as you begin to move into

the Arabic language and the meanings of

the Arabic words you will see

conventional understandings of words

that exist when an Arab says nufs he

understands self but if you begin to

actually go into the language itself it

will articulate for you the reality of

nufs you will understand what enough

says if you make it and I'm even though

the bus Cities won the battle I I like

the crew fee school of the grammarians

you have the bus cities and the crew

fees and they used to if they ever got

together they throw sandals at each

other and and in the good old days all

right now we throw bombs at each other

in those days they just used to throw

sandals when they disagree but the crew

fans believe that words the source words

were roots of the verb and the noun

came after and the bus friends believe

that the noun was actually the source

because Allah says that he taught Adam

the SMAN

physical affair

if you look in Arabic if we look to the

verb itself the Arabic word for nuts has

as to possibly more but two words in the

first form there's six what they call

Bab six forms in the in the Arabic first

form or what they call a fool a fever

the two are not ISA empezó

which is on the bab castro patent and

the nephew say enforcer which is bomb

abandon the the neffe scientist who

means to be miserly the Nephilim who so

means to be precious already Allah is

indicating two types of self the

prophets Eliza ham said in in a

beautiful hadith about one of the

monarch Athene when he was asked who's

your savior and they said sayyiduna

so-and-so and it Lannister killer who

except we consider him miserly the

Prophet said well who naked on a diamond

and Bajal is there a disease more sick

than miser leanness because the kaffir

is a miser in reality because he will

not give thanks to Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala out of thanks is easy to give you

know it's like this London taxi cab

driver that I got and he was complaining

about all these Muslims that had come to

London and I won't say from which

countries but they come during the

summer and they take over a place called

Edgware Road and he was going on her and

he would told me the thing that really

bothered him was they never say thank

you right and and I said well it does

exist in their language which means that

it's just they're bad mannered people

just like you have bad men are people in

any culture any language and I I wanted

to tell what comes around goes around I

mean they stole everything in the the

English right stole the whole world and

they never said thank you to anybody for

all the stuff that they took from it

right the colonialists didn't go and

tell that the Afghan 'yes thank you for

letting us steal your country right but

that's another story the but the the

idea of the Bohemian as one aspect of

humanity the other aspect is

preciousness in a feast the nufs itself


primary nature is precious that is why

whoever kills enough it's as if he

killed all of humankind

this is the phonic worldview the nafs is

precious now if you go into the second

form you have naphtha which means to

help other people to alleviate somebody

suffering which is the cream the

generous the preciousness will do this

but then if you move to another type of

transitive verb it is NASA which means

to literally buy and compete you NASA

civil and this is a sickness that comes

from miser Lina's not wanting other

people to have generosity to have the

blessings that you have and this is why

the Prophet said well attend FSU and

don't buy with one another and if you

must make Tanaka's poor feed addict

affiliate NFS and Mota nephew soon if

people must compete with one another

then let them compete with one another

for akhira but not for this world and

what is very interesting that the

dominant philosophy now is what they

call competitive capitalism which is

literally destroying people as the

prophets Allison and said it would

destroy people when they tenaha sue ha

when they begin to buy over the dunya

but the Velichko home come out a

headache at home and it destroys them

like it destroyed the people before them

so this is again a disease of the self

so from this semantic field that comes

out of the Arabic language you can see

the richness of the word nafs which in

its conventional meaning simply means

self but once you begin to open it up

and explore it you get this


it's where symbol meets reality it is

this is the power the symbolic power of

the Arabic language is that it is

literally meeting reality and haqiqa in

arabic comes from house it comes from

allah word is a lot his name is al haq

and haq Peppa is a derivative from the

word al Haq now if you look in english

the word for reality which is reality

comes from a word

yes which means thing so already in the

language it's indicating what they

believe reality to be which is things

material things this is the substance of

their reality this is not the substance

of our reality we believe that the earth

and everything on it is contingently

real and that it will vanish like

everything else

kudamon are a half an everything is in a

state of annihilation

kullu shay'in had equally leveraged her

everything will be destroyed this

existence is not permanently real it is

only contingently real based on the

ionia of Allah subhana WA Ta'ala that he

allows it to exist this is all the

worldview of the Quran that Allah is

giving us el morado via knowing lordship

and we must again the whole point of

this was that you had to go into the

Arabic language la ilaha illa ma we do

not think of Allah as the supreme being

in a hierarchy of being this is this is

something that already even the

Christian philosophers are recognizing

the the invalidity of this point we do

not see Allah as the supreme being in a

hierarchy of being let's say committee

shape Allah Subhan Allah Tala in a

extraordinary articulation by Abu Bakr

al any one of the great intellects of

this Ummah when they said lay some

apostle in Bahasa he what I'm on FASTA

Don Ho he is neither connected to his

creation nor separated from his creation

leisa committee Sheikh Allah is not the

supreme being with all these inferior

beings la ilaha ill allah and this is

the depth of the Muslim understanding

the Muslims will have the deepest and

most profound understanding based on

their knowledge of the Quran and on

their knowledge of the Arabic language

the next is an amenable WA which is

knowledge of the prophets themselves the

Quran gives us knowledge of what is


we identify that there is no god but

Allah that Allah is actually giving us a

message then who is the messenger the

messengers are clearly identified as men

that come from the the purest of human

beings and they articulate the truth for

creation in different times and places

the the next one is Alma ad where are we

going for an attachable where then are

you going this is the great Quranic

question that every single individual

must come to terms with if people don't

want to think about where they came from

which most people don't and people like

Stephen Jay Gould aren't really thinking

about where they came from because these

people all they look at is how they

never look at why you see evolution

looks at how all this happened never

looks at why why has this come about

whether we believe in evolution or not

is irrelevant in terms of the question

itself why did this stuff come about

what where did it come from who brought

it into existence and so knowledge of

Alma ad that we are going to meet Allah

Subhan Allah Tala that we will be in the

presence of allah subhanho wa taala in a

way that only allah subhana wa ta'ala

knows and we will be asked and taken to

account for this is the end minimum at

the next emphasis of the quran is calm

once you accept your Lord you accept

that there's messengers you accept that

there's a final reckoning how then do

you live in the earth how do you live

with human beings how do you live and

worship Allah and this is the realm of

ham in the Quran there are only 500

verses in the Quran that deal with

account either explicitly or implicitly

it's not a great deal out of the six

thousand two hundred and thirty six I

believe verses of the Quran I don't know

where they get sick sick sick sick I see

either in books quit people whoever's

writing that quit writing that that

scares the Christians they put there's

six hundred six thousand six hundred and

sixty-six verses in the Quran I don't

know who I think a Christian wrote a

book first of all and then Muslims just

been reading that book and getting the

information cuz that's not how many I is

at the AMA but it scares them because

it's the

of the Antichrist in their eschatology

so after understanding the acam and

applying them in our lives

Allah gives us a Gentile human turkey

which is right and worried in the Quran

what we are promised if we follow the

Book of Allah suit pan over to Anna and

we follow the Sunnah of the messenger

when I compute a suti - watch one hasan

at Leman Kanazawa what your mail after

what a Corral Baha kathira do you have

in the messenger the best example for

those who are yearning for the next life

who desire a Las pleasure and desire to

meet Allah in the next life and do much

remembrance of Allah subhana WA Ta'ala

and so the the wide is there and the ye

which is again the term here there are a

lot of promises if we deviate from the

Quran what will happen to us and we are

witnessing that everywhere this is one

of the beauties of the Quran is it

empowers the human being and allows us

to know why we are where we are and how

we can get out of the situation we're in

if you look all over the Muslim world

what why I have two deep deliberation

about these things I have come to the

conclusion that all of this is in

reality a Rhema from Allah Subhan Allah

Tala and nothing else this is a Rama

from Allah - this only yareta adorama TV

- yaja the punishment of my ummah was

placed in the dunya and this is a

ruffler from allah in order that we

might return to allah subhan allah to


Allah has frightening and devastating

ways of bringing his people back to the

Deen of Allah subhana WA Ta'ala

we are warned about this in the Quran so

we should see these things on SantaCon

who shay-shay

and wa huwa hydrant perhaps you detest a

thing but in it is much good for you and

Allah knows Allah knows well the Hanuman

to let Adam on you do not know we do not

understand existence fully and then the

last aspect out of these seven is the

idea of chaos which is the Quran

contains stories of those who went

before us now the stories of

those who went before us are there to

teach us that we are part of an unbroken

chain of struggle the Deen by its nature

is more jihad ah it is struggle we are

part of an unbroken chain of struggle

that will continue until the end of time

it is the struggle of truth and

falsehood they they fight one another

and this is the nature and that we that

allows the panel Italia will give

victory to those who are patient amongst

us and this is why in alumni harbor Dean

what we see from those who went before

us was the deep patience that they had

the deep deep patience that they had in

taking this message out in suffering for

it what met ependymal one honeymoon car

was better on a matter Sabich command to

good forbid evil and be patient about

what afflicts you from doing that to

also been happy what tool also the

suffer they enjoy right and they

enjoying patience by the nature of in

joining right you will suffer

afflictions these are the seven that

even jews al elke lv identifies in the

quran now what I would like to do is

just talk a little bit about the how

then all of us agree that the Quran is

the way out I don't think I've heard

this so many times what is the way out

and I've said it myself the Quran how is

it then do we get from understanding

this at the rational level in the

intellect to literally experiencing it

and living it in our lives I believe

that the Quran itself gives us the

methodology for doing that the first

thing I want to say is that I although

there's a lot of work been done on the

scientific miracles of the Quran Abdul

Majid and Danny has done extraordinary

work and and really people many people

have been influenced and impacted by it

I personally do not believe that the the

I think the scientific miracles of the

Quran are insignificant in relation to

the purpose of the Quran because I do

not believe that the purpose of the

Quran is to be a book of science there

are miracles of science no

in the front in embryology extraordinary

things and in geography and geology and

other sciences they are there and it's

good work for people to identify those

things because it's part of what they

call a jazz an enemy or the

incapacitating nature of the science in

the Quran but the primary a jazz of the

Quran is linguistic and what I would

like to do is look at a statement made

by a man Jeremy Campbell who wrote a

book about information theory he says in

here evidently nature can no longer be

seen as matter and energy alone which is

the 19th century view of reality matter

and energy alone nor can all her secrets

be unlocked with the keys of chemistry

and physics which is what human beings

have been attempting to do to understand

reality at the biochemical level at the

atomic level - this is materialism at

its sickest brilliantly successful as

these two branches of science have been

in our century a third component is

needed for any explanation of the world

that claims to be complete the powerful

theories of chemistry and physics must

be added a late arrival a theory of

information nature must be interpreted

as matter energy and information nature

must be interpreted as matter energy and

information that is the Quranic

worldview the Quranic worldview tells us

that what we see and witness outside of

ourselves are signs from Allah subhana

wa ta'ala and what we see and witness

inside of ourselves are signs from allah

subhanho wa taala

the witnessing itself is not simply a

witnessing with the eye which is the

physical but it's a witnessing with the

heart itself which as a super physical a

metaphysical witnessing articulated by

our scholars when they say a Shahada

totem sadhana and

by moshe Heatherton basurin or bossy

rotten that are witnessing that allah

there is no god but he is a articulation

that manifests out of a knowledge gained

by witnessing mu Shahada basurin with

our own eyes or bossy rotten and with

our hearts and this is why the human

being according to the founder I mean

the Quran itself but the founder of

information theory Claude Shannon who's

the founder of this theory of

information says the human being is the

ideal decoder this is the function of

the human being is literally to decode

and the quran itself is the it is this

the code it is the the translation for

the human being it is the manual by

which the human being can break the code

of existence not from a scientific

aspect and I don't doubt that there are

things in there that that do with that

but from what how existence works in

terms of Sunnah of Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala how existence works this to me is

the greatest miracle of the Quran that

if we learn and deeply deliberate the

Quran a variety tebron al-quran America

lovenox adoha don't they deeply

deliberate and reflect on the Quran or

are there organs of cognition their

hearts covered with locks unable to

access the Book of Allah a variety

Debruyne al-quran what Oh Kahneman in

the lady laughs now as you do fiesta and

kathira if it was from other than Allah

they would have found much differences

in it like the fifty thousand errors

that they found in other religious books

they would have found much differences

in it but there are not differences in

the Book of Allah subhana WA Ta'ala

because the Book of Allah is from Allah

Subhan Allah Tala this can only be

grasped in a

deep and sincere way with yet being

uncertainty by deep reflection on the

Book of Allah and this is the job of

Allah about the people can sustaining

innermost core that break away the shell

of superficial thought that transcend

the shell of superficial thought and

enter in to the meanings that Allah has

immersed the human being in both in his

experience of the world and in the

greatest and the divine articulation of

who the creator of the world is what the

world is and what our place and all the

various types of people and creation

that exist in the in the in existence

itself and this is an act of discovery

to enter into this is an act of

discovery which in itself is to enter

into the experience of ecstasy the word

in Arabic to find or discover is the

same root word that we use for existence

itself who dude is existence what it

means to find but it also means to be

ecstatic because discovery is a state of

ecstasy when they ask table Hanif out of

the Aloha and who Bhima at the rock tell

you how did you gain knowledge he said

well hyung he was shook up by hand and

sugar and the meaning of that is that he

said who know Mazda 2 element with hamon

hammer to lava Shekar to La Paz a Denis

every time I increased in my knowledge

and understanding I thanked Allah and I

gave him helmed praise and he increased

me and my knowledge and understanding

and you thank Allah by blessings things

that make you felicitous things that

give you sad this is why we thank Allah

the Quran is a book of sahaja it is for

the meaning Wynonna's alumina for animal

of she fountain rock metal element

meaning we have revealed from this Quran

what is a healing and a mercy for the

meaning when I use either body minute

Hazara it will only increase those

transgressing in laws why because

they're gaining by transgression and the

Quran stops transgression Unser a hawk

embodiment norm of lumen give victory to

your brother the oppressor and the

oppressed ke phenom sort of Ahana

ilan him how do we give victory to our

brother the oppressor by stopping him

from his oppressing and this is what the

Quran does it will only increase the

bonding in loss because it stops him

from his oppression and this is what the

Muslims who adhered to the book of allah

subhana wa ta'ala have done the way the

methodology in in deriving benefit from

the quran is in the quran itself the

first thing that the quran when it

announced 'as itself it that it is away

from Allah Subhan Allah Tala and then it

tells us that these are signs now a sign

in linguistic theory is something that

must be decoded you have to decode a

sign in order to arrive at a knowledge

of what that sign is indicating and and

the sign is indicating what it's a it's

a signifier of something beyond it and

this is the world is both a sign of the

existence and unity of allah subhanho wa


but the quran itself is a sign of an

explanation of the existence of Allah

Subhan Allah Tala and of the creator and

so the first thing is to recognize that

the Quran is a book literally of ayat

now to in order to decode that those

signs we must learn the language of the

Quran the language of the Quran is

Arabic the language of the Quran is

Arabic Imam is a theory in his rosada of

the one who said well yes Ivana coonley

Muslim in and yet the element and

arabiya T Maya Bravo who do its

obligatory on every Muslim that he

learns from the Arabic language what his

capacity enables him to do and this was

the position of the early community and

I'm not I'm not an Arab here like giving

some kind of note I disallowing that I

learned myself and I'm still learning

because it's a vast language but the

point is that Muslim and and really to

me the English language is is it's a

language as a human language it's a sign

of Allah Allah says in your tongues and

in your colors our signs it's a sign of

a lot but it's for the Muslims to me it

is a sign of our he

and our subjugation that we speak that

English has become the language of our

conferences and our intellectual and

scholastic pursuit is an indication of

our humiliation because it's a language

of a people that conquered many Muslim

lands and they have implant

they've given us this language and this

is what we're left with it's a language

that and I say this as a native speaker

of the language it is a poor language

it's a poor language it's what the Arab

they called lava to tiara the language

of Commerce which doesn't mean they

don't have philosophy and Shakespeare

Sheikh Isabel right they even say he was

an Arab but the point that as long as

we're trapped in the language of English

I believe as an intellectual community

we will not rise to the level anywhere

near what those who went before us do

part of regaining our heritage is

regaining the Arabic language and also

unlike almost all the other languages in

existence the complexification of

languages increases despite the fact

that that that it changes in other words

Latin moved into Italian Spanish French

these are like slangs or dialects of

Latin but by the nature of language

because they left Latin there was a

complexification that took place that

enabled them to articulate difficult

thought unfortunately this has not

occurred in the Arabic language and the

reason for the I say unfortunate I

really not unfortunately but it has

unfortunate consequences the Arabic

language by its nature has been

preserved intact unchangeable with the

revelation of Allah subhana wa ta'ala

the arab grammarians and the arab

lexicographers were the first people the

first dictionary in the English language

is 16th century they don't even know

really what Chaucer's language meant

they can only guess at a lot of words

the meanings of words the Hebrew

language the Hebrews caught on to

dictionaries from the Muslims and this

is why in modern biblical studies in tel

aviv and the universities where they

study they go to arabic brews

to understand the Bible this is a fact

that I'm not making this up they go to

Arabic roots to understand the Bible

because they recognize that as a Semitic

language it is the only language that

has maintained a lexical purity that

other languages have not maintained

because of the preservation of our

scholars and and by the trophy of Allah

because when Allah said in Ana's Elna

dhikr winner who the Harvey boon that

includes the preservation of the Arabic

language because it's an essential

aspect the Arabic language has been

preserved and it's there for whoever

wants it if you want dunya then learn

English but if you want a shuttle learn

Arabic because it is the language that

literally opens up a whole world of

meaning that is inaccessible in the

English language and I'm saying that as

somebody who is bilingual who reads upon

in Arabic and reads English the Arabic

the Quran is not the Quran in English it

cannot be called the Quran in English

and this is not a kind of you know a

boasting of the scholars of the past no

part of the ages of the Quran is the

Arabic language itself and it is a

language of Revelation so we must learn

the language of the book itself and this

includes Arabs who go through year 12

years of high school and they can't they

can't you know one one of the Ottomans

Muhammad banir for saying said this

house lot hosted Holly DOMA be Thoth an

unsub what is nad will Arab this OMA has

been given three special things

knowledge of the unsub genealogy the

knowledge of the is mad Lola Senate La

Paloma Capanna mansion Hashanah less

eminent Mubarak said if it wasn't for

the Senate of this Ummah that he would

have said whatever he wanted to say

whoever wanted to say it so we have the

Senate which is the unbroken chain of

transmission which to the Piranha exists

to this day in an unbroken

chain of transmission to the messenger

of allah to gibreel a days to them to

Allah subhana WA Ta'ala there are

Muslims who memorize the Quran with the

Senate unbroken chain to allah subhana

wa ta'ala and this exists to our day

it's a miracle of the Quran that we have

an absolute Senate of unbroken chain of

transmitters of the Quran both Moshe

hava Sheraton and da Mucha faith then

Wakita Burton by articulation and by

writing its unbroken or estimate as many

all of this has been preserved so

learning the Arabic language now the the

next aspect is and this does not mean if

you don't know Arabic you can't read the

means of a part on I'm not suggesting

that but I'm saying it's a crutch and

lame people use crutches but the beauty

of it is you can throw away your

crutches because the Arabic language is

learn about I mean Marie spoken was 50

years old when he learned the Arabic

language a French scientist who just

wanted to read the Quran in its original

language 52 years old

we have Muslim that speaking was better

than the Queen they speak English better

than the Queen why why is that people

grow up in the Swat Valley and they

speak Queen's English what we want to

speak the King's language not the

Queen's English more I speak the King's

Arabic which is the language of Alan

Milliken mulu the King of Kings Allah

subhana WA Ta'ala so Allah says in the

Quran where da porra al-quran systemic

allahu wa ANSI to la la coneja moon if

we want Rama from Allah subhana WA


this is Allah has given us the formula

when the Quran is recited listen to it

now the word in Arabic here this

terminal is from an eighth form verb is

this Tamara which is what it's called

babban Muhammad which means it's a

reflexive it goes back into the self in

other words it's not simply a hearing it

is an internalization of the hearing

it's a harkening if we say in the first

form semi

it means we we hear like some actor

mauritania dollars they smell like smell

that's not there always ask me do you

hear that do you hear like here they

used to say I heard that right now but

that's not what is the matter it means

that is what semia means estimate means

to internalize it so you you not only

hear the word you internalize it you

take it into the cell you allow it to go

through the ear and into the heart where

it's understood and comprehended what on

c2 and then once it enters into the

heart there has to be silence and

stillness there has to be silence and

stillness if you do not steal the heart

from the chatter of the world then you

cannot understand and penetrate the

meanings of the Book of Allah

Liam you Sue Ellen Mata Harun they only

touch it the purified ones the purified

ones mata haru which is a passive form

they're purified by their class - Allah

subhana WA Ta'ala purifies them they

only have access intimate access to it

those who are purified and so this Quran

has to be internalized there has to be

esteem this this estimate festa me Allah

who were on Seto Lana come for a moon in

order that you are shown Rama now we one

of the things that I think is is a sign

of the the sickness of our Ummah is that

we no longer listen to the Quran in

other words in our Suk's the Quran now

is played like background music you will

hear it out of it I am in a shop another

scene you will hear Quran now in the

Suk's of all the Muslim countries you

will hear the Quran even in the soup and

if you hear it here then tell the people

to stop playing it because the soup is

not the place for Quran in fact it's my

crew to recite the Quran in the soup

except for part of it in who's doing

melodia and you can look at the books of

fear I'm not making that up

and I was once trying to do a

transaction and somebody had a CD of

Quran that he was trying to sell and I

asked him please turn it off and he said

why and I said because Allah says he's a

hotel for infest amir una who if you

hear the quran listen to it and be

silent and and i can't make a business

transaction if you got caught on plane


said is it wide you see this is I mean

this is a sickness this is a sickness it

means there's a deep loss of Adam and

this is what's happened in our Ummah we

have lost add up to the Book of Allah

I'm gonna close it up now we've lost add

up to the Book of Allah Subhan Allah to

Ana now from the add above the Book of

Allah is that you listen to when it's

recited and you're silent now in the

Quran it says left our fart was rotten

for assault and nippy don't raise your

voices over the voice of the Prophet the

Animus many of them has said it includes

when hadith is being recited now there's

a principle in tafseer Muhammad Allah

which is the even more storm like when

Allah says don't say to your parents

both that's the least thing you can do

it obviously means not hitting them or

going on if we're commanded to be silent

when the prophets Elohim is speaking

then what is the commandment when allah

subhana wa ta'ala himself is speaking

which is the kalam of allah which is the

book of allah subhana wa ta'ala if we

hear the Book of Allah we should go

silent if you don't understand it then

be silent anyway neither come tohe moon

in order that you'll be shown Rama from

Allah subhana WA to Anna the the Quran

is the unending miracle of Allah subhana

WA Ta'ala it is the book that enriches

those who have no wealth it dignifies

those who are based and ends and and

subjugated it gives nourishment to those

who are spiritually malnourished it is a

book that brings light and life to the

dead and the blind someone book moon a

moon for home la opción

they Allah says about them they are

blind deaf and dumb and they do not see

their they're deaf they can't hear and

there's they can't speak they can't

articulate and they can't see and the

Muslim is somebody who is listening

attentively to the signs of Allah seeing

the signs of Allah subhana without

because the signs are both things that

we see with the eyes a some amount well

busts are wilful add we see with the

eyes we hear with the ears and we

understand in our hearts the Muslims are

people of intellect they're not people

of stupidity and an idiocy

Muslims are people of

intellect and the Quran is a book that

demands deep thought it is not a book

for simplistic for just just a that no

it absolutely demands from us that we

think Allah subhana WA Ta'ala says

bare-knuckle hockey on a button Fayed

mother who fat either who was a hair we

thrust this Quran against falsehood and

all forms of truth against falsehood and

it is overcome now the air there's a

modern translation that says and it

smashes out their brains which that's a

Grossman's translation of Quran because

da Matta although in its one of the

meanings is a soffit edema to to hip

strike the brain that striking does not

mean smashing it physically out which is

a lot of a way that a lot of Muslim

modern Muslims would like to finish

arguments by smashing out their

opponents brains know where people are

bored on and the proof is if you read

the ayahs that follow that verse you

will see that they all asking about do

you think there's more than one gun in

creation haven't you looked at the

heavens on the earth it's using

intellectual proofs to show these people

in other words you're the mother who yet

mother who means that it overwhelms

their intellect until they have to admit

that it is the truth from allah subhana

wa ta'ala

muslims have never been afraid of open

debate and open discourse the muslims

have never been afraid of open debate

and open discourse of a hadith or of the

omaha and who he debated the atheists in

the masjid he debated people that didn't

believe in the bath this is what the

muslim because they were not afraid of

any forms of falsehood because they had

the truth but because we're so distant

from the book of allah we actually fear

now all of this falsehood that is out


well I al Hawk is a half a bottle in L

bought that I can as a hook-up if the

truth comes falsehood vanishes falsehood

is vanishing the Prophet when Saint Ali

he said sits alone Calcutta Leyland

Muslim there there are fictions like a

dark black night and then

ali karram allahu wa ja reveal on said

Marshall Asuma edenia Rasulullah what is

the way out on that day he said kid have

allah the book of allah fissionable

omaha broken maha brahma better come

worship mama vanakkam it has the

information of those who went before

news about those who will come after and

it is a judgment between you the

prophets alliance edmond de la who

teairra sirat al-mustaqim Ikuo Coronado

was tougher Allah give Baraka Melissa

and Musa Musa Ramallah the beer the beer

the beer desert Allah brother Hamza in

view of the shortage of time I'm going

to allow only one question if anyone in

the audience has a burning question to

ask brother Hamza I am white just one


yes brother if you would stand up and is

there a microphone in the


go back to me

but a

the question if I understood it right

was as from Arabic speaking people

because an Arab by definition is

something who speaks Arabic and the word

in fact comes from a word which means to

articulate clearly baba your Arabic

means to articulate clearly and some

call an out of mind is like rubber

lining things like that but the and some

say it comes from the Arab which is the

one of the fathers of Arabic but it's

those who articulate clearly which means

the vast majority of people now claiming

to be Arab are not really Arab in fact

if the Sahaba heard them I think they

would just shake their heads and say are

these what kind of language is this but

like a eyes in are like Hagia they would

just say what was that active the LME

that means in Arabic I write with pain

so they you know they really wouldn't

understand I don't think I mean they

heard so Hebert Romi once saying yeah an

S yeah an S and all Madhavan of kebab

said mybatis oh hey you Nadia Ness

what's wrong with sohave he's calling

the people and he said no no he has a

boy named Yanis but so he had the urge

MA in his tongue so he didn't pronounce

the hat very strongly I would say that

the the the way that we go back to the

Quran is taking them in Hajj of the set

of people the men have the cell phones

to read the Quran in 30 days this was

the Manhattan of the cell of the Quran

was divided into 30 Jews 660 his 30 Jews

the the his was 60 to be recited at Fajr

and mother it takes about 15 to 20

minutes to read and most people spend

more time in the bathroom doing their

toiletries then then that takes really I

mean just to put our priorities straight

agua Hanif are up in LA I know who is

oftentimes the most generous in terms of

his new

Nancy said that the least amount that we

can recite the Quran is twice a year

that it must be recited at least twice a

year the prophet Elijah in a hadith that

has weakness that arrazi mentions that

says men today are Barina

Fahad Jaffa the one that has gone past

forty days and hasn't completed the

Quran has been rude to the Quran the

Quran must be read but it has to be read

with deliberation we know that the

Sahaba did not memorize the Quran until

they were acting according to it and

this will increase us in our knowledge

when I'm gonna be my edema or death or

Hollow in my madami annum whoever acts

according to what he knows Allah will

increase him in his knowledge so there's

increased by acting according to what we

know the Arabic language of Quranic

Arabic although there are deep

intricacies and subtleties in the

Quranic Arabic by and large the Quranic

Arabic is not a complicated Arabic it is

Mubeen the Hadees are actually more

difficult to read than much of the Quran

but the Quran must be read with

commentary and the commentary is is

something that this is one of the

problems of the modern age is that

people are literally reading the Quran

misunderstand there's people reading

English translations and

misunderstanding because the translator

misunderstood it and there's

misunderstandings in the translations

and also translations only give one

aspect the Quran oftentimes have many

different aspects so the the Quranic

Arabic there is a beautiful vocabulary

that is not extensive that can be

learned very quickly I have a class that

has been working with me two hours a

week for about three and a half almost

four years too and they are they all of

them were a gem when they

and now they're reading the Quran with a

considerable amount of understanding

they can understand it with a dictionary

using relying on a dictionary for some

words and this shows you just that a

small amount of time a massive amount

can be gained now Arabs already have a

considerable jump on everybody else

because there's a great deal of the

platonic Arabic that they still can

understand even for a person on the


my friend Abdullah Ahmad in dead that

told me he was in Egypt once and he he

speaks four high Arabic and he got in a

taxi and he said read on Hobart a

Superman paprika hat - Terry about of

Allah and the men said subtle Allah


so now Egyptian taxi drivers are

notorious for being like what they call

FIFA dumb so I don't know if he was just

not understanding it was caught on or he

was making fun of my friend but we'll

give him the benefit of the doubt now

yes Coleman minute oh man I send your

crew no Heidemann home let not want

people mocking other people perhaps

they're better than them so the the most

beautiful tafseer' that we have is the

jela lane for a quick understanding of

the quran it's in a remarkable work with

and i also recommend a testy Lee Adama

tanzeel by even Jews al qalbi

which is also concise and just brilliant

in what it contains and then you move on

to the bigger tough series but we should

identify resources and the other thing I

didn't I want to talk about this but

again I'm just not I need to be more

structured but I want to talk about our

children and and giving our children the

book about la Savannah with Anna the

prophets allies and I'm said on the Omo

qiyamah that the parents who give the

caught onto their children will be given

crowns that radiates like sons you tell

we drew T Jan tell America since I mean

Subhan Allah

oh I don't understand how we can give

our children chemistry and biology and

physics and I mean it's just that

they're not going to be tested about

that stuff on yo mo camera which is not

to under two diminish the importance of

those Sciences I'm not but we need to

get our priorities right and our

priority above and beyond everything

should be the book about loss of Panama

Tiana and what lie and I'm saying this

and making an oath by Allah our own

amount who were the most brilliant

scientists and scholars that the world

has ever known

I mean way beyond the people now who

don't even know how to to take care of


I mean scientists are uninspiring

by and large it's not all of them but a

lot of them they look at these Western

scientists they don't even know that how

to send it to me on email they'd only

want to talk to people anymore send it

to me on email but these are anima all

of them what they share in common is

that they memorize the book of allah

subhana wa ta'ala and they learn the

language of the arabs and I believe

personally that that I in the Quran is

absolutely literal in its meaning land

of contact they don't in order that you

use your intellect that you learn to use

your intellect when Allah tells us the

reason why we're all scattered and

separated he says Vatika the end of all

Monday afternoon because there are

people that don't use their intellects

taxable and Emanuele Pirro vinsetta that

it can be uncommon a afternoon you think

that they're united their hearts are

separate because they don't use their

intellects we need to begin using our

intellects raise up to the level of this

Deen and Arabic is a means it's a tool

that's all it is it's a tool but it's a

powerful tool that empowers the

intellect certain types of

understandings that are not available to

people through other linguistic mediums
