As salaamu alaikum homies!
Happy Friday !!!
Today I was able to do my second podcast! I was super nervous but Al-Hamdulillaah it went well. I was invited to talk about journaling. That is my favorite thing and I can talk all day about journaling.
We touched on two types of journaling - but for the sake of time - let's talk about one of them and that's all about Qur'aan Journaling.
When you start Quran Journaling you need Tafseer. You need tafseer even if you aren't Quran Journaling. The tafseer is super beneficial and important when reading the Words of Allaah. What's going on nowadays is that people are trying to add their own interpretation to the ayat.
This is not what you are supposed to to do.
So the first source that must be used to interpret the noble Qur’aan is the Qur’an (itself) along with the Sunnah, which consists of the Prophet’s statements, actions and silent approvals. Then after that, it must be interpreted using the interpretations (tafseer) of the people of knowledge, at the head of whom are the Companions of the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). And the foremost amongst the Companions with regard to this subject (tafseer) is ‘Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (radyAllaahu ‘anhu). This is due to several factors, one being that he was one of the first to accompany the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) (i.e. accept Islaam), and another being that he (radyAllaahu ‘anhu) would give strong emphasis to asking about, understanding, and interpreting the Qur’aan. Then after him comes ‘Abdullaah bin ‘Abbaas (radyAllaahu ‘anhu), about whom ‘Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (radyAllaahu ‘anhu) said: “He is the interpreter (turjumaan) of the Qur’aan.”
I did a Youtube Video about this.
