Mp3 Audio: Short Stories with the Letters of the Alphabet

January 12, 2014

Every audio begins with this:

أَهْلًا وَسَهْلًا بِكُمْ يَا أَصْدِقَائِي مَعَ يُويَا وَالحُرُوْف. لُغَتُنَا العَرَبِيَّةُ

لُغَةٌ جَمِيْلَةٌ. إِنَّهَا اللُّغَةُ القُرْآنِ الكَرِيْم. وَهِيَ عِلْمٌ وَنُوْرٌ وَمَعْرِفَة. نَقْرَأُ

وَنَكْتُبُ وَنُصَلِّي وَنَتَحَدَّثُ بِهَا مَعَ بَعْضِنَا بَعْضًا. أَلِفٌ بَاءٌ العَرَبِيَّةُ فِي الاليَاء. هَيَّا بِنَا هَيَّا.

(Welcome O my friends to Yooya and the letters.  Our Arabic language is a beautiful language.  Indeed it is the language of the Noble Quran. And it is knowledge, light, and comprehension.  We read, we write, we pray, and we speak to each other with it.  Alif, baa, the Arabic letters from beginning to end.  Come on, let’s go!)

Then it says:

اليَوْمَ سَنَتَعَرَّفُ عَلَى الحَرْفِ …. فَلْنَسْتَقْبَلْ وَلْنُرَحِّبْ عَلَى الحَرْفِ

Today we will get to know the letter…..So let’s receive and welcome the letter….

After that the letter is repeated several times and several words that begin with that letter are mentioned before it continues with:

سَأَرْوِي لَكُم حِكَايَةً قَصِيْرَةً فِيْهَا كَلِمَاتٌ تَبْدَأُ بِالحَرْفِ اِنْتَبِهُوا مَعِي

I
am going to narrate to you a short story which has in it words that begin with the letter….Pay attention with me:

Mp3 Audio: Adventures of Toothbrush and Toothpaste

January 12, 2014

مُغَامِرَاتُ مَعْجُوْن وفُرْشَاة

The following are audios made from some of the episodes of the cartoon:

The Adventures of Toothbrush and Toothpaste”

The following five are the main characters:

مَعْجُوْن Toothpaste (man)

إِسْفَنْجَة Sponge (woman)

فُرْشَاة Toothbrush (girl)

فُرْشُوْن Little Toothbrush (boy) – he doesn’t say words

أَنِيْقَة Brush (an older lady, grandmotherly type figure; aneeqah: elegant)

Listen to each more than once, don’t try to catch all of the words (though if you are able to, then this is very good), but try to get the gist of what is being said.

The Late Scholar Umar bin Muhammad al-Fulaanee (Fulaatah) d.1419H

January 11, 2014

 

Shaikh Umar bin Muhammad al-Fulaanee, also known as “Fulaatah”, was from the major scholars of our era who died in Madinah in 1419H (1999 C.E.).  For a more in depth biography, see the two biography links at the bottom.

 

He had many teachers, from them were:

 

Shaikh Bin Baz

http://www.binbaz.org.sa/mat/21295

 

Shaikh Hammaad al Ansaaree

http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=51627

 

And he had a strong connection to Shaikh Albaanee.  When Shaikh Albaanee would come to Madinah while making umrah, he would stay with him and Shaikh Umar would honor him greatly

http://www.alalbany.net/5375

 

 

From his students is Shaikh Sulaymaan Ruhaylee who said about him:

 

He knew him from a young age and benefited from him

 

His father and Shaikh Umar sat in the study circle (halaqah) of  Shaikh AbdurRahmaan al Afreeqee and Shaikh Umar would say to him:

 

وَالِدُكَ زَمِيْلِي

 

Your father is my colleague.”

 

Shaikh Sulaymaan Ruhaylee said:

 

My father wasn’t a shaikh or from the students of knowledge, but he was eager ever since he got to Madinah to stick to the circles of knowledge.

 

Shaikh Umar Fulaatah was the most knowledgeable of the people in the narrations (aathaar) regarding Madinah.

Shaikh Sulaymaan doesn’t know of anyone in his time more knowledgeable about the narrations and locations (or situations) mentioned in the Sunnah about Madinah

 

He was eager for the sunnah and eager to explain the books of the sunnah (kutubus sunan)

He was very kind and treated people in an amazing way.

 

Shaikh Sulaymaan Ruhaylee said:

 

How many times did I fall into taking a confusing position that he caused me to come out of very easily

 

Shaikh Umar Fulaatah worked in the Islamic University of Madinah and had many efforts there. He had continuous lessons in the masjid of the Prophet – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – after the death of Shaikh (AbdurRahman) al-Afreeqee

 

Shaikh Sulaymaan Ruhaylee described Shaikh Umar Fulaatah as:

 

مَتِيْنٌ فِي العِلْم

Strong in knowledge

 

طَيِّبٌ فِي الأَخْلَاق

Good-mannered

 

أَنِيْسٌ فِي الحَدِيْث

Friendly in speech

 

صَاحِب عِبَادَة

One who had a lot of worship

 

Shaikh Sulaymaan Ruhaylee said:

 

I travelled with him to Nigeria once – his room was beside mine and there was a door between us.  I was responsible for calling the adhaan for fajr.  I got up before the adhaan in order to call the adhaan (on time).

 

I heard the shaikh in his room reciting the Quran and praying until close to the time for the adhaan of fajr
