Posted: February 25, 2009 in Ahh moments, Taleem Al-Quran


Alhamdulilah! Subhana’Allah, I cannot express the awesomenesssssss of Al-huda’s Ta3limul Quran Class. During today’s session, the hadeeth of the companions stating they would not move on from one ayah till they understood completely then implement truly came to mind of the way Al-Huda’s teaches its students. This course which will continue for the next 3 years of my life is truly a gem and a blessing from Allah! We went through first five verses of Baqarah in words analysis-tafseer-translation-subhana’Allah. This book of Allah and this class is truly THE STUFF OF LIFE. My blog is going to take a 360 and basically Al-huda is going to take over up on here. Most notes may appear jibberish but all are for me, and I ask that those who are able to read for it to be a means of benefit. Below, is my notes for today, which was one my favorite sessions of all time. Insha’Allah I’ll type gems usually from the class, but for today as it was such an awesome, amazing, blossom-close to my heart session that I felt I must post it.  Till next, I ask Allah to join all of us in Al-Firdous Al


Alhuda-day 3

(Heart/tongue -preventing factor will not occur. Depends the type of dua and the condition of the one making the dua. it’s the weapon-Ibnul Qayam rahmullahi. If you don’t ask it for sincerely. You should sincerely ask for it from your heart. Be strong, and cannot be heedless…focus on its meaning, on heart, mind, etc. when making this dua

Preventive factor: distraction, might not understand what you are saying, dua-for attaining knowledge

Be specific when you make dua.
Be sincere
What is your need?
The path or way to be made easy

Of the dua of Musa, we ask Allah to open our chest; in the chest is in the heart. For the heart to be opened, understood, with pleasure and understanding. Willingly, etc. The task becomes easier, the quran reveled to the hearts…knowledge, to be made easy, to be inclined, Taqwa in the hearts..etc.

Shar: To dissect, to open

Wa Yasirlee Amaree: and you make my task easy…

If you understand completely from the heart, then you’ll be able to convey it from the heart to the people.)
The Quran was brought down for the hearts. When Gabrial a.s. brought down the wahy-to the heart of the Prophet sal allahu sallam-was not written down by him sal allahu alahi wa sallam. In memory wise-the Quran is going from one person to another.

Baqarah: verses 1-5 (Lesson 2) 286 ayah- 25,500-words {Word Analysis}

We have provided for them
Those who attain success or successful (Mufliheen-they try and put effort and keep praying to Allah to make it easy for them)

Al-Baqarah, the cow, 67-73-named after the story of the cow
Alif-Lam-Meem (Huruf Muqada3ata)- (29 Surahs in the Quran begin with these letters)the disjointed letters, you read them separately.
Linguistically, these don’t have meaning. They have a purpose and wisdom in them to be there.
Scholars stated: 1.)To prove the miraculous nature of the Quran.
These huroofs are followed by words that exalt the quran
2.)To alert the listener (Alif Lam Meem)-your drawn to it -a maad there-proper recitation emphasized.

When you recite these letters; you are given a reward for read.
Thalika-used to point towards something. (This and that) This-you use it when its near. That-for something far away. Points to something high in status. We give it respect and honor. We need to give this to the Quran, right in the beginning we learn this.

Thalikul Kitaab- That book (literally point to something near or far-or something in front of you to be exalted). In order to exalt it. It may be referring to that book (above with Allah), or the one

Kaaf Taa Baa (Kataaba)
Kitaab-that which is written down.

Katb (to gather, to join together, to collect) a book talks about various topics and placed together. Al-Kitaab-Al in front-makes the noun proper-specifies–this quran, this specific one! Al-Kitaab-referring to the entire Quran. Al-all book ( the whole entire Quran) or The book.

La Raybaa feehee–There is no doubt in this entire book. Laa-Negation. Raa Yaa Baa- Doubt.
Rayb-doubt, not at peace-mental unrest-that’s doubt.
Fee- In (hee) it -it refers to the book (this Quran), no doubt concerning it, nothing doubtful about it. Its sent from Allah, definitely from Allah subhana wa tala.
Doubt; could also be any statement mentioned it-everything mentioned there is true-it’s a fact.

Hudan: A guidance Root: Haa Dal Yaa (Hidya, Ihideenaa) Hidaya: to guide someone with affection and care; Hidaya: to direct and show them the way and making sure they have reached their destination. If you follow the Quran, it will make you reach all the way to the end and make sure you reach there. Provided you take this guidance, it will make sure you get to the end.

Lil Mutaqeeen: Lil (For) Al-(The)- those who have Taqwa (Mutaqee) Mutaqeen (Plural)- those who have taqwaa or consciousness Root: Wa Qaaf Yaa–Waqiya-to take a shield from something, to be on ones guard. A fighter needs a shield. Purpose of shield is to protect. Taqwa, it’s the consciousness that saves a person from sinning, and disobeying Allah. When you consciously disobey Allah, your inviting the punishment of Allah subhana wa tala. Taqwa: 1.) Out of fear of Allah, you avoid the sins 2.) Fear of the Punishment of Allah. The person is alert! Very conscious and you protect yourself. You don’t relax…this much good=you go for it, this much bad= you stay away from it. The whole goal, you protect yourself from the punishment of Allah!

Characteristics of these people: Who fear Allah.

Next ayah: Allatheena (those who) Yumoonoon (they believe)  root: hamza meem noon)
Muminoon, Iman, -believe. They have Iman, they believe, Iman-What is believe? What is Iman? it’s a feeling in your heart and a result worship follows

Iman ( is of 3 things)
1.) Tasteeq: you affirm in the heart-in your heart, you know it and you believe it to be true.

2.) Say it with the tongue: Someone who becomes a muslim-they must state it, they believe. Pronounced

3.) Worship-actions, Iman is proven by the actions.

Bil Gayabee Bee Alif Gaya bee ( With the unseen) Gayn Yaa Baa –geeba (backbiting) When a person is not there and absent and spoken bad about, Geeba-which is unseen, which is hidden. All that is beyond and hidden from the human senses -can’t hear, can’t see-

Gaib is of two types:

1.) General: What is happening in the cafeteria
2.) Specific: The angels -can’t hear and can’t see them -Day of Judgment

Allah says : In the Al-Gaib-Allah is specific–(that which we haven’t seen, but we are required to believe in it)

Wa -and Yaqeemoona (They perfectly establish) qaaf waa meem) Iqaama- to make something stand straight. Qiyaam -to stand straight! To make something stand straight. To establish something properly as it should be. They performed properly-the salaat-

What kind of prayer?
Salaah-refers to the five daily prayers-the ritual-specific way-Eid salaah-nawaful prayer. it’s a prayer that is performed in a specific way. When it should be done, how it should be done, etc. properly.

Wa meem maa ( Meem=from) meem maa Razaq–provided- na-we , hum=them Root: Raa Zaa Qaaf ; Rizq=provision, means every beneficial thing that is needed.

Rizq: two types

1.) Its tangible: Feel and touch. Example; food, clothing, family etc. Physical
2.) Intangible: Its there but cannot be touched; Iman, humans need this; time-this is also rizq, what you didn’t have time?

Yunfeeqoon: They spend from what they have been provided (above) Noon Faa Qaaf: To spend ,
Nafaq: a hole, tunnel -if there is a whole in something, its going to come out.
Yunfeeqoon: they don’t just hold all their wealth with them, they spend it for their families, people of need-they are not greedy people. Sometimes we hoard and keep things, and we end up throwing it away.

Wallatheen (Wa -and latheen-these people) Yumonoon-they believe, Bi maa ( with what) Unzoola Noon Zaa Laam…. Nazala (to come down from above, to descend) It was send down. Illaka (you) refers to the Prophet sal allahu alayhi sallam Ill Kaa – Ill-to Kaa -you

Wa maa (they also believe) Mimaa Qabilkaa (before you) Qabli Kaa (Qaf Lam Waa)-Qibla-in front of us, face us when we pray-has to be in front of us. Qabila-in front, used in form before in time or place. (They believe in Torah, zaboor, etc. and other books they have no recollection of)

Wa Bil Aqiraat Wa-and Bil-Aqirah (Hamza Qaf Raa) Aqrah: That which comes later, and will come later. When life ends-Aqirah includes from moment of death to later-angels in the grave, punishment of grave, the angels..the resurrections, the accountability, jannah or nar, all of eternity.

Alaa – upon Hudda-guidance -they are definitely on guidance. This huda min rabihim (from their Lord) Rabb


General: Rabb-from their lord
Rabb: Special in Rabb-in lord in a special way

They (Wa Ulukaa) again, they and only they, its repeated to exalt them. More emphasis

Muflihooon: Successful:

Muflihioon: root: Faa haa laa (Flaah) success, Flaah-someone who is successful. Flaah- Falaah-used for a farmer. Does he have a easy life? Works everyday, works hard, can’t be late or leave early from work. He plants a seed and goes through the whole process. Flaah-is effort-success that one has achieved after having struggled, after having suffered and then you achieved it. They are doing, doing, doing, and they achieve their goal. They achieve what they sought . They have to wait to get their reward!

Salaa-prayer: burn, someone who comes to sallah burns off his sins.

Saad Laam Yaa : To burn

Tafseer: Baqarah v. 1-2

Knowledge is like a game, you hunt it, capture it. Write it down! Qalm, was the first creation of Allah. Allah takes an oath with it. Its so important.

Alif Lam Meem: Hurufoo Muqadi3aat..written together, but read separately.

This book is a guidance for the mutaqeen:
What are their qualities: Allatheen Yomonnen Bil Gaib-they believe in the unseen. Iman Bil Gaib: Unseen refers to all those that we are required to believe in.

Hadeeth: Amantu Billah Wa Rusoolihee, Wa kotobeehee etc. This is eman.

Gaib: in dictionary, unseen. It doesn’t mean we should believe in everything unseen-I.e someone in the other room etc. Difference between Gaib and Al-Gaib=specifically those things Allah has asked to believe in. Allah says specifically-the Al Gaib.

Important in believing the unseen: If we are told to believe in the seen, its easy, its not hard. But for the Al-Gaib-it’s a test. If Allah says said this, sama3naa wa ada3anaa-we hear and we obey. When Al-Gaib comes to mind, we should think about Allah-He, the most high, is from the world of the unseen.

The Prophet sal allahu alayhi sallam-important to learn- surah baqarah-bring greatness/reward and bring sorrow if neglected.
Baqarah/Imran-shade the people on the day of Judgment-they are a light. They would either come a cloud, or two umbrella’s shade, or two birds covering them.
The Prophet sal allahu salam, do not turn your homes into graves-shaytaan flees away from a home where surah baqarah is recited.

A madanee surah-after the migration of the Prophet sal allahu sallam to medina.

Opinion of Ibn Taymiyah: Quran is made up the words of the Arabic language, not imitable in prose or way.
Allah’s secret in this book: Hurfoo Muqadeeat-Quran made up of it, but cannot bring anything like it.

Thalika Kitaab-this book-its in front of it.

1.) Originally in the Lawh Muhfood-in 7th heaven-original copy-above. Boorooj ayah 21-22. Bal Huwal Quran Majeed, Fee Lawhul Mafood

2.) Abasa 16-etc. Fama Shaa thakara -recorded in honor sheets-in the hands of the noble angels.

3.) Third: in our hands. (Third place, highest place with the angels-and then with us, should we not feel comforted) When you read it, read it with contentment. Will give you peace of heart.

Rayb-doubt-restless. This book, it will not make you restless-you’ll be content. If you have someone your comfortable with-your at ease and happy. The Quran will make you happy. Any question or doubt you ever had, it will clear it. It will bring you peace.

Bil Haq-with the truth-from beginning to end-its reveal with only truth. Is their any book that claims that there is no doubt? Your about to begin to read this book, take this journey, shaytaan will come and try to whisper to you…but you remember do not have any doubt.

The Mutaqeen: The keep away from sins from fear of Allah-they stay away from whatever leads to sins. One who safe guards himself, and does what Allah asks him to do.

The more guidance the person had, the more taqwa he has…this person wants guidance-more and more..etc. Allah who have guidance, Allah grants them more guidance, more guidance-equals more Taqwa.
Surah Kahf:  Allah says we increase them in Taqwa.

GPS analogy: Some people follow it for directions/guidance. Some people look and just get information, they are not seeking guidance. It depends on the person reading the quran-what they are seeking, and what they want out of this book.
