intro (page 3)

- Mu'awana is mutual assistance

- Birr acc to Ibnu Hajar - all good actions; one of the name of Jannah
Rasulullah saw: ‘alaikum bi al-shidqi fa inna al-shidqa yahdi ila al-birri, wa al-birru yahdi ila al-jannati (HR Bukhari) - truthfulness guides to good action and good action guide to Jannah

- Ta'awanu from the word tafa'alu - doing things mutually
If we want Allah to help us, we have to help others.

- Acc to Abdullah Al Fadak - Faedah is benefit from little words that have intense meaning eg mann (quite) najah (succeed)

- Nafa'a: when RasuluLlah sallallahi 'alayhi wasallam drinks zamzam water, he made the du'a Allahumma innii as aluka 'ilman naafi'an wa qalbin khasyi'an (heart full of love , fear and awe of You) wa amalan solehan

- Fath: pouring down of knowledge, Imam Abu Hanifa said that the time that he's sharpest on the deen was when he drank Zamzam on a regular basis.

- hold fast to the Book of Allah and His Messenger Sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wasallam and calling towards guidance (du'a)
dalil: spesific indication, taking the right path. Habib Umar bin Semaith pointed to a book with his four fingers and palm. Syeikh Muhammad ba Syu'aib always pointed with his palm. After a few years, he found out that Rasulullah Sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam pointed with his palm. Dalil = show

- Basmala - bi balin The hadith Every important task that is not started with basmala becomes fruitless. (Fayzul-Qadir, V, 13.) 
Law anzalna hatha alqur-ana AAala jabalin laraaytahu khashiAAan mutasaddiAAan min khashyati Allahi watilka al-amthalu nadribuha lilnnasi laAAallahum yatafakkaroonIf We (had) sent down this Quran on a mountain, surely you (would) have seen it humbled, breaking asunder from (the) fear (of) Allah. And these (are) the examples, We present them to the people so that they may give thought.
Acc to tafsir sayuti this is the verse basmala

- Rabbi Yassir wa a'in Ya Karim: to understand the direction of the book
Rabbi = my Lord, tarbiyah = to provide, Allah = the Owner of all of us; Murabbi = the one who makes us grow ( a gardener who plants the seeds, at the right month, right position and support)
different with Allahuma, it means all the asmaul husna

Yassir = related to we want to travel in a path that's made easy
Fa a man a' to wattaqo Wassodaqo bil husna Fasanuyasiruhu lil yusro (surah al-layl)

وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْآنَ لِلذِّكْرِ (Surah Al-Qamar)- easy for the people above

 Yuridullahu bikumul yusra wala yuridu bikumul 'usr (AlBaqarah) 

Sayidina Musa when he went to call Fir'aun, he used the word Rabb: Rabbi isyrah lii shadrii, wayassir lii amrii (20:25)
Rabb: truthful connection
Allahumma sahil alayya ma amartani

- Sayidina Alqama came from Iraq travelled to Syam to meet Abu Dawood in Umayyad Mosque to seek one hadith, he sat there and make du'a Allahuma yassir li jalisin soliheen (ease for me good company)
'min man anta?' (from where you came from?)
'min ahlil kuffah'
' Don't you have Abdullah ibnu Mas'ud who used to keep Rasulullah sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam shoes and his bowl for wudhu'

wa a'een: related to 'aun

kareem: lots of different translation, following qualities:
1. forgive even in the state of power
2. no limit in the amount of generousity (give more than what the other deserves)
3. annoyed when not being asked
Allah did not destroy us despite our sins and give us more that what we deserve, and if we turn to someone else and not to Him
Karim: linguistically Karam: the best, special type of wine (from the best grapes - grapes: the heavier grapes the more it will bow down)
Put your hands out and He will give
A narration from Abu Huraira 'Innal karam alqlbul mukmin' we should adopt the quality in us

Fath: Inna fatahna laka fathan mubina
the jews settled in Madina when Rasululullah sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam opened Mekah - conquest of Khaybar, related to success and opening
In biography of scholars, we can read when they have fath for eg Imam Nawawi, he's not interested in playing since small but it was time when he's ill that he received most knowledge
Habib Abdul Rahman Kittany said one year in Comoros Island is better than 70 years of study.

Al-'alim: our knowledge is derived from something eg Cairo is the capital of Egypt, we get the knowledge from somewhere. 
Allah's knowledge didn't come from anywhere and it is limitless. He can pour the knowledge without restrictions. Wa 'alama Adama kulluha - and as a result Sayidina Adam taught the malaika.

Above are the intention for studying from Imam Abdullah Al-Haddad (RahimuLlah) translated as: All praise to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. And salutations and greetings upon our master Muhammad and upon his family and companions.
