    Shaikh mentions about Umar’s advice of teaching the children 4 things, and one of them was to teach them poetry. May I ask what is the wisdom/benefit of that?

    For Sister Umm Reem;

    I think it was to make them masters of Arabic grammar, I remember listening in a lecture by either Kamel Mekki or Mamdouh Mohamed that the Sahabah and generally Arabs of that time were very strict in teaching Arabic + Arabic grammar to their kids (or I read it on the Multaqa), but Allahu Alam, I’m trying to recollect something from distant memory. Can someone please confirm?

    Yes, but i thought that poetry wasn’t really encouraged for us…but i suppose if it was to refine Arabic language then it must be in different connotation…

    Tariq bin Ziyad didnt open up Bosnia,/Albania wasnt that the Ottomons? He must have meant that he paved the way for the subsequent openings in Europe.

    dear Br Tawfiq .
    a.a.
    listened onYoutube to your speech
    “Once We Were Men “…-
    Mashaaallah..excellent talk.
    Just to correct.
    Tariq ibn Ziyad ( 8th century) & his followers did not go beyond the Iberain peninsula (Spain , Portuguese & South France).
    Islam reached the East Europe much after the 15th century after the libertion of Constantinople ( Istanbul ) by Muslims in 1453.
    Thanks
    Sincerely
    DrYunusGilani@gmail.com
