00:00:22--> 00:00:50

Sala will continue with our series on the prophetic biography, the seed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In the previous session we talked about the immediate family of the messenger sallallahu Sallam his grandfather, his grandparents actually, and we also spoke about the parents of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. This week, inshallah we're going to be discussing, we're going to be talking about the actual birth of the Prophet of Allah salallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:00:51--> 00:01:33

There are two main discussions when discussing the birth of the prophets a lovely sort of, there's the actual date, time, circumstances the experience of his mother, while giving him birth. And then the second discussion is, and this is something that is somewhat contested or debated, between scholars about the authenticity of it is debated highly debated among scholars. But nevertheless there are narrations which detail to us, that at the time when the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born. At that time, certain miraculous events took place. I spoke a little bit about the events leading up to the birth of the prophets, a lot of them but actually on the night,

00:01:33--> 00:01:51

on which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was born. That same night there are reports there are narrations of certain miraculous events taking place in different parts of the world, and almost as a as a universal as a global sign of the arrival of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:52--> 00:02:15

inshallah, we'll talk about those particular incidents and those narrations will probably speak about that in the next session next week. inshallah. This week, we'll be focusing on the actual birth of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam himself, and what were the basic circumstances surrounding his birth and his arrival on this on this earth. So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam

00:02:16--> 00:02:59

in the Hadith Sahih Muslim, the prophet of Allah zolani Sanam was asked by an alharbi by a Bedouin men. He said jasola, Mata poofy sama, Yamuna name, or messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, what do you have to say? What do you advise us about fasting on Mondays? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that a Yeoman that a Yeoman will lead to V will only Allah Allah Fie, that that is the day on which I was born. And that was also the day on which divine revelation arrived to me it was first revealed upon me. So from that what we realize is that from an authentic narration, we're getting it directly from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam that he was actually born on a Monday. And that the

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

fact that even the revelation began on a Monday.

00:03:03--> 00:03:49

Then there's a famous rewire narration by from Mr. Mohammed in his Muslim, in which a prophet of Allah Allah, Allah is narrated by him nobis or the Allahu hanuma. He says, walidah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yeoman is named. The Messenger of Allah Allah son was born on a Monday was to be a Yeoman his name. He was given Prophethood on a Monday that revelation. Arabic Allah the hell up that day in the cave of Iraq, it was a Monday. Well, karate Mahajan, Makita illan Medina tioman his name and he left Makkah and departed towards Medina on the the great migration to blessitt hedger on a Monday, waka demon Medina tioman. His name he entered in arrived into Medina on

00:03:49--> 00:03:53

a Monday will to fear Yeoman, his name he passed away on Monday, what

00:03:55--> 00:04:11

his name is that famous incident that occurred before Prophethood with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, which we will talk about in the Ceylon shall in the coming sessions, that when the hut allegedly asked what needed to be lifted, and put back into place, that day was also a Monday.

00:04:12--> 00:04:58

So as I mentioned, this is the narration of Mr. Mohammed narrated by him in his Muslim. There are also other extended narrations, extended versions of this narration. Even though a saccade mentions in his book in his study his book of history, when desolate Sultan, ma EDA, Aloma acmella codina come Yeoman a thing that this I have the Quran that was somewhat of that completion of the commandments from Allah subhanho wa Taala and the completion of the deen and the blessing of Allah, that was also a Monday and then. So these are also other narrations talking about this. So what we are able to derive what we are able to come to a conclusion about is that the fact that the

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

Cinema. He was born on a Monday. Now as for what day what month was it? So the vast overwhelming majority of scholars narrations books of Sierra books of history books of Hadith say that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam was born during the month of Arabic Allah revealed

00:05:19--> 00:05:44

that he was born during a one. And so this there's almost practically there's consensus on the fact that the processing was born during the month of Robert Irwin. Now, there is a very, very small minority of scholars who say that who have certain quotations or quotes or narrations in which they claimed that the Prophet of Allah Salaam was born during the month of Ramadan, however, there's very little to know.

00:05:45--> 00:06:02

You know, proof, there's little to no grounding for that type of an opinion. So again, like I said, the vast overwhelming majority practically a consensus exists of the fact that the Prophet of Allah Salaam was born during the month of robiola one. Now, it goes into the discussion as to

00:06:03--> 00:06:43

what date what date during the month of horrible old was the prophets a lot is important. So he's one on a Monday and it was a month of review. But what date during or below when was it? So here you start to find a variety of different variations. There's the narration from a half is even the idea that he says that the Prophet of Allah salon is him was born on the 17th of June Oh, well, there's even an opinion by Imam and walk at the famous historian. He says that the Messenger of Allah ceylonese and even even Abdullah bottom, in his car holds the opinion that the Prophet of Allah Salaam was born on the second of Erbil. Oh, well,

00:06:44--> 00:07:03

there is also the opinion by a lady, a great scholar. He says that the Prophet of Allah salatu salam was born on the eighth of April below that that Monday, it was the eighth of April Bulova and similar opinions come from Mr. Malik, Mama, Aki and Mr. Missouri.

00:07:05--> 00:07:47

There's also the opinion in by even a socket and Abu Jaffa about it that the Prophet of Allah Salaam was born on the 10th of a while, however, the opinion that the Prophet of Allah Salatu son was born on the 12th of robiola. Well, that which is usually the popularly known date of the birth of the prophets Allah so that is what is hot in a serum mentions. Even Abby shaver mentions this in his muslin Neff and this Nerys this particular opinion is also narrated from passed down from Java ignore bass or the 1100 there's actually a narration from them. Willie Rasulullah he's alive he said I'm I'm and feed Yeoman his name authentic Tanya Sherman sharabi, a woman that the Messenger of

00:07:47--> 00:08:28

Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born during the year of the elephant. I've mentioned this previously that the prophets allottee son was born about 50 to 55 days, there are two more stronger opinions. Some opinions, say a month, some say six months. But there's more stronger opinions are that the Prophet of Allah salon was born 50 or 55 days after the occurrence. After the incident of the invasion of the army of the elephants in the eradication. He was one of our 50 or 55 days after that incidents. And he's so he was born during the year of the elephant on a Monday only thing a 30 I Sherman Sherman sharabi an hour on the 12th day from the month of June a one. And that was also a

00:08:28--> 00:09:10

fee burrito fee or deja vu le sama, Haji Rafi Mata Matura Allahu taala Allah and this is and then they go on to say that it was also a Monday on which the Prophet of Allah salatu salam was given Prophethood It was also a Monday on which he was taken on the journey of an Islamic mirage. It was also a Monday on which he migrated to the city of Medina, and it will also Monday on which he passed away. And this is the popular opinion. This is the typically well known opinion and the majority opinion even even amongst Islamic scholars that that this occurred on a Monday the 12th day during the month of Ramadan hour during the year of the elephant. And so that's a little bit of a

00:09:10--> 00:09:17

discussion as to exactly what day the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born.

00:09:18--> 00:09:19

There is also

00:09:22--> 00:09:49

and this coincides basically, in the opinion of some historians is also coincides with the 22nd of April in the year 571 of the Christian era. So the 12th of June Oh well, Monday, during the year of the elephant coincides with or rather I should say, it coincides with the 25th of the month of April during the year 571 of the Christian era.

00:09:50--> 00:09:56

Now going on to talk about the exact circumstances that surrounded the birth of the prophets a lot he said I'm

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

the mother of the Prophet of Allah Salaam

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

He was sent him. Of course, as I mentioned previously, when talking about the father of the process, I'm overall talking about his parents, that the father of the prophets a lot, he said, I'm passed away before the prophets allottee son was born. And again, that is the again dominant opinion amongst Islamic scholars. And that's the generally more reliable held opinion. There are again, some very, very minority opinions that the, by the time the father of the profits all of a sudden passed away, the process was already born. He was about a month or a couple of weeks old, because there are some narration some historical narrations which mentioned the fact that the father of the prophets

00:10:37--> 00:11:15

of Salaam was traveling on business, as I mentioned, and he stopped over in the city of Medina. Actually, some narrations even say that he was sent to yesterday to Medina, to conduct his business to work out some type of a business deal to bring dates from Medina to Makkah. And he fell ill during that time, and he passed away. There are some historical narrations would say that the people that he traveled with the business caravan that he traveled with, they waited there for for him for some time for a few days. But when when they realized his health was not getting any better, and he was in no shape to travel, they went ahead and came back to Makkah. And when they came back to

00:11:15--> 00:11:50

Mecca, Abdulmutallab, the, the, you know, the grandfather of the prophets of Salaam, you obviously asked him, where's my son, Abdullah, they said, you know, he became very ill in Medina and yesterday when we had to leave him there. So then send somebody to your trip to go and check on his son and bring him home. And when he reached there, that's when he found out that he had passed away and he had been buried at Downton Abbey. Hmm. Now, based on that some scholars have speculated that Some time passed, so that the time when they usually note as the death of Abdullah is when the the caravan returned back to Makkah. But so they're speculating that basically no, they left him there,

00:11:50--> 00:12:24

and he was still ill, he was still sick. So he passed away, possibly after some time, but like I said, that is merely speculation. There's not any solid type of evidence or proof that this is based off of. So again, the father of the process alum, according to the vast majority of scholars, passed away before the Prophet of Allah salatu salam was actually born into this world. And and what kind of supports that as well is that the prophet SAW some himself mentioning that he was born an orphan who was born at a team of Allah subhanho wa Taala, addressing the Prophet sent him and telling him that you were an orphan, right?

00:12:25--> 00:12:56

Let me eliminate Gk a team and for our eliminate duplicate human data, data loss fantana find you an orphan, and then he still gave you a place he gave you a home, he was able to take care of you. So again, based on that, there's, the scholars lean more towards the fact that the father of the process is some did pass away before he was born. Now. So the mother of the processor is expecting, she's expecting and actually, she was very close to her due date. At the time of the death of the father of the process. I'm her husband, Abdullah,

00:12:58--> 00:13:39

something very interesting ahaadeeth generation that is mentioned here. And I didn't mention it previously. But one established fact, of course, is that the parents of the process are more married, and the process than was conceived through marriage, and then the process assemble even though by the time he was born, his father passed away. Nevertheless, this was of course, a very righteous bless at birth, and the Prophet of Allah ceylonese M is reported to have said, that will lead to minigun landmines of sci fi, will lead to minica han lamb and sci fi, I was born by means of by I was more I was born into this world by means of a marriage nigga, not by means of a sin. And

00:13:39--> 00:14:03

what's very interesting about that is because the process himself does generally and there are some extended narrations which elaborate further, that some scholars have even gone as far as saying that the, the entire lineage of the prophets allottee so there was no one who ever committed adultery, there was no one from the entire lineage of the process of who's born out of marriage. And this is part of the blessing, lineage that the prophets Allah He said them comes from regardless.

00:14:04--> 00:14:07

So the mother of the prophets Elisa is now giving him birth.

00:14:09--> 00:14:20

Now, there are some narrations which talk about that the mother of the process, some had some very interesting experiences, leading up to the birth of the Prophet salani some she saw certain dreams.

00:14:21--> 00:14:48

She, you know, she, she, she in her dream, she was being addressed by someone, and that she was starting to have some very interesting, you know, abnormal type experiences. For instance, the mother of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Amina. She actually says that from the day I became pregnant with him, till the day that I gave birth to him. I never felt any pain.

00:14:49--> 00:14:56

I would never experience any discomfort. I did not feel any pain. There was no trouble there was no discomfort, no nothing

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

and to understand what, you know how, how strong

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

range, or how miraculous how rare that is. Anybody who has children knows that that is not the norm at all. That's not the case at all. There's extreme discomfort. And there's a lot of difficulty and adversity that the mother goes through in order to carry the child bear the child and then give birth to the child. But she says, I didn't feel any pain. Someone said that she goes as far as saying that even giving him birth. She did not experience any pain. So this this was one of those experiences of the mother of the prophets, a lot of a sudden, she says, there's actually a narration a Hadith, which the prophets Allah says what opia on me and Latina attain a Hamlet be Ghana hora de

00:15:41--> 00:15:44

minha neuron abajo por su Lucia.

00:15:45--> 00:16:04

He says that my mother saw a dream when she was pregnant with me while she was carrying me that a nude was coming out of her belly, a nude was coming out of her womb, that was literally lighting up the palaces in a sham. The policies of Syria and a sham were being lit up.

00:16:05--> 00:16:45

There are other narrations in which it's mentioned that the mother of the prophets of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she would see dreams. And in her dreams, she was being addressed. Somebody was coming in addressing her. And the scholars have said that these were melodica LGBTQ Salaam, these were angels who were coming in addressing her and they were telling her in one narration particularly at mentions in Nicki called Hamilton bc they have the illuma that you are carrying the leader of this of this nation, this oma for either waka in an update when he is born, and he arrives on this earth for Puli or even who've been white. Michelle equally has it physically

00:16:45--> 00:17:32

beaten Ahmed, Bakula. abdon raw it Missoula Hadees is for India who Abdul Hamid al Majid Hata raha Tamasha hit that she's been told that when this child is born, I want you to say, only then say at that time, or either I put him into the protection of the one of Allah, min shuriken he has it, that may Allah protect him, me that one protect him from anyone who will be envious or jealous of him? He couldn't be better in the army, and may he be put into the care in the company of good righteous, strong, confident people. Welcome Lee abdon rah it, and may he be put under the mentorship or the care under the supervision of the slaves of Allah who are leaders and who are confident and strong

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

leaders of their people, Missoula, Vedas

00:17:35--> 00:17:39

and that may he arrive and may He find a place on this earth

00:17:40--> 00:17:55

00:17:56--> 00:18:03

until he has shown and he witnesses that which he is meant to witness, meaning he witnesses the truth he receives Prophethood

00:18:04--> 00:18:44

and it goes on what I add to that again, the who yakushima who neuron Yama okumura busara, mean or the Sham and the sign of his birth will be that when he when he comes out from you when he is born, when he exits and he arrives on this earth, then along with him a nude a light will come that will literally fill the earth with nude and with light and even so much so that the palaces and a sham will be enlightened for either walk off as a medium Mohammed and when he is born, to name him Mohammed, for in for in the isma houfy turati Amadou because his name in the Torah was Ahmed Yamato, who was among

00:18:46--> 00:18:55

the people of the heavens and the people of the earth. Praise Him. What is moving in Gili Amadou and his name in the Injeel was Ahmed Yamato Abu Salah

00:18:56--> 00:19:20

that the people of the heaven God and rather the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth, they praise Him. Well, it's moving for me Mohammedan and his name in the Quran in the book that will be revealed to him will be Mohammed. So this narration is also there that she sees this in her dreams. And she's having these types of very, very, you know, extremely intriguing experiences.

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

Now,

00:19:24--> 00:19:48

she goes on to talk about how she even not no one actually talks about when the prophets Allah son was born. So there were a couple of women that were present there when the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born. One of these women was the mother of Earth man bin Abdullah house, the mother of Earth, Mohammed Abdullah us, and also it's mentioned that the mother of a human being whose name was a Shiva,

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

a Shiva found the mother after a human being. She was also present there during the birth of the process. And these were the two women who were taking care of Amina and who were there to assist her

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

in childbirth, they both also note there are also narrations from both of them that they say. The mother of earthman been asked. She actually says that when Amina gave birth to the Prophet of Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam for my shaman, um, little lady Phil Beatty Illa neuron. She says literally I was like blinded, I could not see anything but nude. in that house when the Prophet of Allah Salafi son was born, were in the underworld in a new job. And she said, I looked up and there was an opening in the roof, the ceiling of the house, and I looked up and I could see the stars and it seems as if the stars were coming closer to witness the birth of the prophets a lot he said, I'm

00:20:39--> 00:20:50

intending to the stars kept coming close your head that abou La Liga, so much so that I started getting afraid and I almost screamed out that the stars are going to come and fall down on top of us. The mother of

00:20:52--> 00:21:25

the Allahu anhu. She says a Shiva she says, Samir tocar in your coulier hammock Allah we're in the who suffer amin who neuron Rui admin cuckoo room. She says that when the Prophet of Allah salatu salam was born when he arrived on to this earth, at that moment I heard someone saying your hammock Allah, may Allah have mercy upon you. So someone proclaimed, may Allah have mercy upon you. And she says, a nude emanated at the time of the birth of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that literally lit up all the palaces all the way to a room.

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

So, this was the experience that was

00:21:30--> 00:22:07

this was the experience at that time during the birth of the prophets a lot. So, there are also some variations which even talk about the the actual, the witnessing the prophets, a lot of the some in what he looked like and what exactly happened with him when he was actually born. There are even some narrations which even talk about when the Prophet of Allah Salafi sin was born. And he and they received him when he was born from his mother, that at that time he actually set he when he when they received him into their hands and actually mentioned that he literally sat up on his knees. Some narrations talk about the fact that when he was born from his mother, his eyes were wide open,

00:22:07--> 00:22:44

and he was staring up at the sky. And this is how the Prophet of Allah ceylonese was born. Now I should go ahead and mention here that a lot of these narrations again, some of these narrations are contested some of these narrations are there's some speculation, there's even some criticism as to whether these are authentic or not. So I wanted to go ahead and offer that disclaimer. Nevertheless, Scott, great scholars of Sierra like urbanists have great scholars like of Sierra like all the IR that is a Shiva. They've chosen to actually mentioned these narrations, our lemma, even Cathedral in albida. When the higher end is Kitab, on the seat of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:22:44--> 00:23:18

sallam, he mentioned these narrations. So many of the scholars still found enough value and benefit in mentioning these narrations. And that's why basically I've mentioned them before you hear I'm in no position to be able to say whether these are authentic or not authentic, etc. Basically, we follow the lead of the scholars and their life's work. And so that's why I mentioned these narrations in front of you. But I'll go ahead and at the same time mentioned that there are some scholars who have expressed some doubt on their part whether or not these narrations were authentic or not, well, Lakota, Allah, Allah mobisoft, and every single time even cathedra mo, like you

00:23:18--> 00:23:53

mentioned these narrations, he provides a reference and then at the end, he says, Well, longtown, Allah knows best, all right. And so we will also similarly leave it at that. So there are some narrations, which are, which also mentioned that Amina the mother of the Prophet of Allah Salafi some actually, before even the birth of the process of she called her father in law, the grandfather of the processes, I've looked at it, because of course, the father had passed away. Now he wasn't there. She calls the grandfather, her father in law. And she actually told him, Look, I've seen these dreams, I'm having these types of experiences. And at that time, the the looked at him told

00:23:53--> 00:24:33

her just be patient, be careful, just remain steadfast carry through with giving birth to the child, this is a sign that this child will be somebody very, very great, this child is meant for great things. So when the Prophet of Allah Salatu, was now born, she again sent someone to go call for Abdulmutallab, the male guardian of the child. Without the muttalib arrived. Again, she went once again, he was informed by the women who were present there. And by the mother of the process of Amina that looked we had this type of an experience, there was no there was light, etc. All right. And she hands the child over to the maternal the male Guardian, and because he wanted to go and take

00:24:33--> 00:24:59

the child to the Kaaba and make dua over there for the child. But she also tells him that listen, one of the dreams that I had seen and one of the, you know, one of the times that I had been addressed, was that I was told that this child needs to be named Muhammad. The child needs to be named Mohammed. There's one narration to that effect. One narration says no, it was actually Abdullah looked on his own personal opinion. It was his only inclination to name the Tao of Mohammed regardless of the fact the Prophet of Allah Salaam

00:25:00--> 00:25:30

was named Mohammed. There's also another narration which actually says, but the mother of the Prophet of Allah syllogism, the narration that says that I've deliberately chosen a Muhammad that the mother of the process I'm actually preferred the name for the Prophet of Allah ceylonese. And so that's where the process of did I both these names, he did have the named Mohammed and he also had any management that the mother of the process have liked and preferred the Mohamad while the grandfather of the process and then preferred the named Mohammed. Regardless, these were some of the names of the Prophet of Allah Salafi some, there are other names as well, which we'll talk about in

00:25:30--> 00:25:31

just a little bit inshallah.

00:25:33--> 00:25:39

Abdulmutallab takes the child to the GABA to Baitullah and

00:25:43--> 00:26:31

he takes the child he takes the baby the newborn to Bay to LA to the GABA, and then he makes and he actually recited some poetry he recited some couplets, which have been preserved and that they've been mentioned by Alam Ivan Kathy, he says Alhamdulillah Allah Dr. Bonnie hazal hola Mata even Adani but the southern marianella family who are either will be lackeys in our county, Hakuna Matata, Hakuna Bella button fifth Yanni Hadar, who bought a nanny who are either woman coolly v Min polyvision Annie min Hassidim moto moto rebula anani The Himmat in Mesa who are I nanny Hata la hora de Sonic antenna de su meter fin for Pani ficou Tobin saboten, masani Madame la Cubana Allah Listen,

00:26:32--> 00:26:42

he recites and he says basically these couplets of poetry that are praised a lot for giving me this blessing child has beautiful child of Danny, who is very, very blessed and noble.

00:26:43--> 00:27:28

Are the Satterfield Maddy alemanni already in the lap of his mother in his cradle, he has already he's already become a leader of other boys have other children, or either will be lagging in uncanny. And I put him into protection of a law who is strong and who is firm, who has who owns the foundations. And I pray to a light put them into less protection so that he can grow up to become a strong young man, so much so that I can see him reach the heights, I can see him reach adulthood. And I put him into protection of a lot from anyone that will have hatred towards him, from anyone who will be jealous of him from anyone who will be insecure, we'll be uncomfortable with who he is

00:27:28--> 00:28:04

and his greatness and will be jealous of him. And anyone that will try to approach him. May Allah subhanaw taala take away his eyes. And may Allah subhana wa Jalla lift away his ability to speak May Allah give him the ability to lift his tongue against this man against this young boy and the man that he will become. And then he points at a child and he says you are the one who has been named in alpha con. Meaning You're the one who's been named in the sacred texts of God. He could have been Tabitha Tilly muthoni, in the books that have been sent by a lot in the books that have been sent by God, and that are well established and have been recited throughout the generations and centuries.

00:28:05--> 00:28:24

Mother booktuber Elena Sahni and your name has been mentioned throughout the generations and throughout time. So he recites these words. So you see that even the Muslim has his convictions of the fact that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even a childbirth, that this is a very, very special child, and that there's something very unique about the child.

00:28:25--> 00:29:05

It also mentioned that when the maternal goes there to the Kaaba, and he, you know, he's making to offer this child that some of the other leaders of Qureshi are there, and they see the maternal holding this baby, and they get very excited. And so what happened after metallic, he says, My grandson, he's been born, the son of Abdullah, he's, he's arrived, he's born now. And so they asked him, What did you name him? What is his name? And he says Mohammed, Mohammed. So the name Muhammad was a very rare name at that time. Even cathedra. himolla actually says that this was a very rare name at that time, even cathedra harmala does not agree with the opinion with the position that some

00:29:05--> 00:29:39

scholars have mentioned that the Prophet of Allah Salatu was the first one ever to be named Muhammad. There's actually quite a bit of discussion on this. So and that's actually mentioned by some more ohakune some more scholars who have done research on the issue that they say this was something that was popularized by Elko sauce, the causes for saucer storytellers, not scholars, sport storytellers, people who embellish and tell stories. And you know, you know, they just try to entertain people, entertaining folks. So they've popularized this this notion that the Prophet of Allah Azza wa sallam was the first person ever to be named Mohammed. But this actually incorrect

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

there were there were others, even before the Prophet of Allah polysomes birth in hijas, in the tribes of Arabia, who had the name Mohammed, but it doesn't change the fact that the named Mohammed was a very rare name. At the time the Prophet of Allah salani son was born, the name Mohammed I should go in and share this with you as well. The name Muhammad comes from the root hemp. It's from the fairies.

00:30:01--> 00:30:10

And it's Mohammadi some of her own, which basically means that it means the one that is frequently the one that is constantly the one that is repeatedly praised. Yeah.

00:30:14--> 00:30:51

That's basically what what was being told to Amina. He is the one that is repeatedly frequently regularly praised. Mother is the one that is very, very abundantly praised. That he is very greatly praised. Amazing things are said about him. And Muhammad means that amazing things are said about him over and over and over again. And we know that not only was this foretold to the mother and grandfather of the Prophet of Allah ceylonese, but we know that this is actually the truth, even before profited. This was the man that when he would walk around Makkah, they would point to him and they would say, a sodic alemi he was praised even before a prophet. And this is the man that after

00:30:51--> 00:31:22

Prophet, Allah subhana wa tada is telling him what a foreigner laka Vicar sallu alayhi wa sallam to Sleeman that this is the man that whom Allah subhanho wa Taala praises we're in Nicola Allah, who cannot be in Ensenada, shahidan huamu Bashir on one of Iran without a man in a lucky be Italy he was here Raja Manila. So this is that man who was abundantly frequently till today he's praised. And today the most common name in the entire world is Muhammad.

00:31:23--> 00:31:27

What greater compliment is there? So this was foretold.

00:31:28--> 00:31:37

Even in the name of the Prophet of Allah Salah 87, which actually, again, if you take those narrations that his mother was instructed to name him this

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

now there's one very

00:31:44--> 00:31:50

so let me first talk about a little bit more detail about the name of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:31:52--> 00:31:58

The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. There's actually a hadith there's a narration from the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:32:02--> 00:32:51

There's a narration there's a hadith from the Prophet of Allah Salaam, in which the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, in nearly a smartphone, in nearly a smartphone, I have many names, and a Mohammed I am Mohammed Ahmed and I am well Anil Mahi LLVM Hello, B al cofra. I am al Mahi, that Allah subhanaw taala will means one who erases one who eradicates wonderful removes a man to remove to erase. All right, that I am an Mahi. I am the one who removes the one who erases the one who eradicate that a lot eradicated Kufa through me. All right, well, and then Hashem levy yoshua Nasrallah, pardon me, and I am a Hashem. Hashem means what? who gathers that people have gathered at

00:32:51--> 00:32:56

my feet, that people have come to me from far and wide to take their Deen. And then he says,

00:32:57--> 00:33:08

another octave and I am an octave. And the explanation for that is lace about the hoonah. begun after means one who comes last, the end. That's why the heel of the foot is also called.

00:33:09--> 00:33:25

All right, it's a pub is the plural are called means heels. So again, octave means one who comes at the end, one who comes last because he was the last of the messengers of Allah Salafi some, there are some other nations which in which the prophets Allah also says that I am

00:33:26--> 00:33:51

a Hartman I've been I'm the seal meaning seal of the prophets. There's another narration yet, in which it mentions that the Prophet of Allah syllogism says well, and then we'll coffee, another coffee, that again, I'm the CEO, I am the cap on Prophethood. And the prophet of Lhasa lifesum says, what an ideal Russia, I am the prophet of mercy, under the narration yet mentioned another name for the Prophet of Allah ceylonese him and that is an abule, mula,

00:33:52--> 00:34:06

mula hanabusa mill, hammer, mill hammer Allah He means, you know, battles or war situations. So I'm the newbie I am the Prophet that will also you know, establish the deen and that will also defend the deen. All right.

00:34:07--> 00:34:47

So there are these narrations in which these names of the Prophet of Allah a lot of them are mentioned. At the same time. The scholars Also note the fact that from the names of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Also those names by which Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran, calls him Allah subhanaw taala addresses him in the Quran. A Rasool Allah subhanaw taala calls him nabee Allah subhanaw taala calls him daddy Illa Allah, Allah calls him Muzammil. muda said, Allah subhanho wa Taala calls him Suraj de la casa Mooney and and the fact that he was in a big rush man, he was in a bigger nude. He was in a big shifa, he was in a beagle, he Dyer, he was in a beautiful farm, he

00:34:47--> 00:35:00

was al Bashir and nothing. So all of these are titles, descriptions, and names of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there's actually Hassan bin sabot by the Allahu anhu. The personal

00:35:00--> 00:35:26

poet of the Prophet of Allah Azza wa sallam, he says, worship Allah hoomin is me he Luigi la who for the Larose mahmudullah Hava Mohammed Subhana Allah, He says that and it was split from him. His name was split from the name of Allah. His name was split from the name of Allah meaning that his name was directly from Allah subhana wa tada Luigi Lago so that he would be honored for the ERC mahmudul

00:35:27--> 00:35:31

philosophy mahmudul because the last kind of agenda is

00:35:32--> 00:35:59

the one who's the one who is on the throne. Our last panel is Mahmood, he is the one who is praised. We'll have Mohammed hada Muhammadu, and he is Muhammad. Allah is Mahmoud. And he is Muhammad. This is these are the words of Hassan bin Sabbath and the praise of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So this is the discussion on the names of the Prophet of Allah salatu salam. Now, there's also another side discussion.

00:36:01--> 00:36:07

And I actually, you know, actually thought for quite some time whether or not to even discuss this or not.

00:36:10--> 00:36:54

Because one thing that's very important is to maintain practicality, when we talk about any area of the day, whenever we discuss any issue of knowledge of any knowledge of our the practicality is extremely important relevance, maintaining relevance is, is the priority. It's Supreme. Alright. And so keeping that in front, they're part of the purpose of the sessions is to provide a basic discourse, a basic explanation on the life on the prophetic biography, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the life of the messenger ceylonese and so that people will know who the Messenger of Allah salami some words, they can properly emulate themselves after him, and they can receive direct benefit from

00:36:54--> 00:37:22

this, that they can receive guidance. Through the example of the Messenger of Allah, Allah says Allah instructs us to in the Quran, Canada Confederacy, like certain hazza. But at the same time, part of the purpose of these series in this, these sessions was also to take time to do a thorough need to do it properly. So that, you know, in depth issues are also at least briefly alluded to. So I'm going to go ahead and talk about this issue, but I'm going to talk about it very, very briefly. And

00:37:23--> 00:37:40

talking about this issue might even seem offensive to some folks. But nevertheless, understand that this is an issue that there are some narrations which actually talk about this from the Prophet of Allah sallallahu sallam, because it is a matter of our Deen. And this is something that the scholars have discussed.

00:37:41--> 00:37:42

And that is,

00:37:43--> 00:37:50

in a Hadith of the Prophet of Allah salon, he said the most authentic narration the President talks about Asha lotrimin, Sunil ambia,

00:37:51--> 00:38:00

there are 10 things that are from the cinder that are from the life style, the practice of all the prophets and messengers. Allahu wa Salatu was asleep.

00:38:01--> 00:38:23

However, and so one of those 10 things is alita huttner circumcision. All right, this is from the Sunnah of all the prophets. This is a part of our Deen and it's a very, very well established part of our Deen. It's very important that it goes as far as mentioning that the fact that this is part of the identity of a Muslim male circumcision. All right.

00:38:24--> 00:38:49

So there's also a discussion whether or not the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was circumcised, circumcised or not meaning. So what was the other option? There are actually narrations from the Prophet of Allah realized him there again, there's some discussion as to the authenticity of these narrations. But nevertheless, there are narrations from the Prophet of Allah sallallahu sallam, where he says that when he was born into this world, he was already circumcised.

00:38:50--> 00:39:23

He was born circumcised, he was born without the need of circumcision. And then prophet of Allah ceylonese actually goes on to say that no one ever saw no one ever witnessed my private parts. And this was part of the honor that Allah subhana wa tada bestowed upon the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So these narrations are actually mentioned, they're actually present. And there's a discussion on this. So some scholars of Hadith, and some scholars of Sierra, say that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:39:25--> 00:39:28

The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:39:29--> 00:40:00

was circumcised, and he was circumcised by his grandfather, Abdullah looked at him. He was circumcised, but his grandfather Abdulmutallab that after the child was born, Abdulmutallab came, Abdulmutallab took him, to the Kaaba to the Bay to LA. There he circumcised him and he circumcised him himself. So even in the opinion of those scholars, that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam was actually circumcised after his birth by another person by another human being, that they still

00:40:00--> 00:40:18

He was circumcised by the old grandfather of the Prophet of Allah salallahu alayhi wasallam and the grandfather of the Prophet of Allah syllogism chose to do this himself. He chose to do this himself. So again, there is honor there's distinction. There's that privacy of the Prophet of Allah salon. He said, I'm being maintained.

00:40:19--> 00:40:21

And there are some very, very

00:40:22--> 00:41:02

well established scholars of Hadith and scholars of Sierra, who are of the opinion that no, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not circumcised by any human being, but rather when he was born, William McDonough and the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually says in a narration, that will lead to Mattoon that when I was born into this world, I was already circumcised. And this was something that I was proud of what Allah naturally had already created me in this manner missoura and even mentioned the fact that the umbilical cord of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam with his mother was already cut was already seven,

00:41:04--> 00:41:44

automatically considered a miracle. Consider considering one of the early marches out of the Prophet of Allah la de Sena that he was already pre circumcised. I mean, the umbilical cord was already pre cut, it was already cut from before. And then he goes on to say that nobody saw nobody witnessed my own private parts, meaning that it wasn't done publicly. It wasn't done as a ceremony as would be done many times at that place. And so that that's why some scholars still feel comfortable with the position that the grandfather of the process and performed a circumcision. Nevertheless, again, I didn't want to discuss this in a lot of detail. But there are legitimate scholars who hold both

00:41:44--> 00:42:16

opinions, both positions, will Lakota Allah, Allah, Allah knows best as to what happened. This is not an issue of human or faith for us. We do know that the prophets Allah Islam was of course circumcised. This is from the center of all the obeah Sinan of all the messengers and all the prophets of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, how that exactly transpired. Allah, Allah subhanaw taala knows best. And if there is, there is, you know, if we were to take that in the region where the prophesy centum says he was born already circumcised, and the fact that many scholars have held this position, then this was some one of the early marches, ads of the Prophet of Allah surrealism. And

00:42:16--> 00:42:33

if he was circumcised, he was circumcised by his own grandfather, by the hand of his own grandfather, without anybody else's presence here. And this was, of course, divinely arranged by Allah. So to give honor privacy distinction to the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:42:34--> 00:43:13

So this is a little bit as to the discussion about, you know, the rights of birth, when the child is born, there are certain rights, certain things that are done. And it goes on to talk about the fact that I've looked at him, waited till the seventh day, after the birth of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and at that day, he, he, of course, kept a great feast, in honor of the birth of the prophets allows him to so just like we have the aka. Similarly, this was a habit, a tradition of the Arabs, that obviously had been passed down to them through Ibraheem alehissalaam. So these were one of the last few remnants of the Milla of Ibrahim, the true religion, the faith,

00:43:13--> 00:43:35

the practice of Ibrahim Ali, some that remained with them, that they would practice the Africa, the birth feast, and the celebration of the birth of the child. And so on the seventh day of the birth of the prophets, a lot of them looked at him arranged a very huge feast, everybody in Makkah, was invited to this feast, and they all came and they all celebrated the birth of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:43:37--> 00:43:43

Now, I'm going to go ahead and basically end this week's session here. And next week session I'll talk about

00:43:45--> 00:44:15

you know, the, those those miraculous events that occurred at different places in the world that that same day, that same night on which the Prophet of Allah salonica was born. And we'll discuss the authenticity of those narrations and which scholars hold them to be sound which scholars have debated them somewhat, or at least debated the authenticity of them. We'll talk about all of that next week. The last thing that I wanted to mention here, related to the birth of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam because it comes about as a consequence of this discussion.

00:44:16--> 00:44:45

So the birth of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu sallam, again, unanimously, the scholars state, this was one of the most amazing days that humanity has ever witnessed. This was the day that one of the greatest blessings of Allah subhanho wa rahmatullah alameen, that he came into this world. So what is the significance of marking that day? Whether someone calls it molad, whether someone calls it me, lad, whatever somebody decides to call it, what is the significance of marking that day? So again, there's a difference of opinion

00:44:46--> 00:45:00

that about whether or not that day should even be marked in any way, shape or form or not. There are obviously certain practices that are outright completely inappropriate, and that are done inappropriately to mark that day, but never

00:45:00--> 00:45:29

Unless there are some classical traditional scholars that would mark that day. And the way they would mark that day is by either addressing their congregations addressing their communities, talking about the birth of the prophets, a lot of him talking about the seat of the messenger, salallahu alaihe salam, and reciting Salawat, and basically talking about the Messenger of Allah salons and on that day and educating their communities on that day. So some scholars held this position and held this practice, even even till today, there are some traditional classical scholars that maintain this practice.

00:45:30--> 00:46:10

Some scholars of the are of the opinion that no, this is not an established practice, that it should not be practicing this way in this fashion. And it should not be marked by any special activity on that day. Because this was not something that was the practice of the surface of the self. This was not a practice of the early generations of Assam, and many of the great scholars of Islam. And so there are these two schools schools of thought there are these two opinions on this issue. What I will say is that there always tends to be an extreme on either end, there always tends to be an extreme on the other end, that's just how we roll. All right. We we were, we're susceptible to

00:46:10--> 00:46:43

extremes. That's just how we are. And what ends up happening is when one extreme arises, it often breeds the other extreme. So there's an extreme that once again, might engage in some very inappropriate activity or behavior that attaches virtues, specific virtues to that day, that are that are not found that are not rooted that are not grounded anywhere in the tradition of our Deen. But there's also another extreme there's also another extreme which outright blatantly, generally, completely,

00:46:44--> 00:47:04

you know, just condemns anyone that will, you know, have anything to do with that day. All right, anything that has to do with that day. So if it simply was an acknowledgement that you know, today was the day in history in which the Prophet of Allah Salaam was born, or if it's simply some education that's being provided, that's it

00:47:05--> 00:47:45

without haraam gone, alright, so these, these two extremes often exist, there is a balance in the middle of scholars have their own opinion. And so even the scholars that do tend to mark this day with some, you know, lectures or some education, or some some acknowledgement of the day, even they, as a current day scholar, just so somebody has a reference to Abdullah bin beya. May Allah Sparta preserve and protect him. He's of the opinion, he's a great scholar, a great family of our times. And he says that there's no harm, and at least at least acknowledging this day, and maybe having some education for the community on this day, but he says that those people who might choose to mark

00:47:45--> 00:48:12

this day, they need to be very careful and cautious that they do not attach specific virtue To this day, they don't go as far as saying that celebrating this day is sooner or have special reward in any way, shape, or form. They're simply treating it as an acknowledgment of a great moment in our history. When the day of butter comes in the month of Ramadan, the Imam the Hatim turns around during Sonata tarawih, and addresses the audiences what today is the day of

00:48:14--> 00:48:52

when the day of atomica comes, he addresses the audiences today, was it a great day of the Greek conquest of Makkah, it's a great day from our history. So that's fine. But even so he's of the position of the opinion that this day should be acknowledged. But even he's advising those people that might, you know, follow his lead and keep this opinion that you cannot attach any specific virtue or special reward to this day. Because that's just something we don't find in our tradition. At the same time, to scholars who practice a little bit more caution, that we got to be a little bit careful because the you know, some people are maybe crossing certain lines in marking or

00:48:52--> 00:49:29

acknowledging or celebrating this day. All right, that we need to be a little bit more cautious and we need to be restrained. And we should not do anything out of the ordinary to mark this day. But even those the balance scholars amongst them also go as far as advising their own congregations and the people who might follow their lead and keep those opinions. They advise those people that you also need to know your place. And you also need to stay within your own limitations and boundaries, and you're in no position to go around condemning others. Alright, so there's a little bit of a balance here, myself personally, the scholars who I learned from my own teachers, my own shoe, were

00:49:29--> 00:49:59

practiced a little bit more caution in regards to this issue, that they would not specifically specially mark this day, they would not go out of their way to conduct any special activities on this day. And that was their opinion. That was their position. That was what they personally taught me. But of course, they also advise this always something inappropriate is something inappropriate, something out of the deen is out of the deen. So we criticize or we act or we may be speak against a certain activity, but we also need to be very careful about blanket statements.

00:50:00--> 00:50:08

We also need to be very careful about condemning people. All right, because they are people at the end of the day. And and I'll go as far as saying this.

00:50:10--> 00:50:45

As long as we're talking about the people who are more towards the center, this issue whether you decide to have a seat electron that day or not. All right, this is not an issue that will affect you in the grave, you'll not be asked about this in the grave. This is not an issue or whether somebody else was marking was having a senior electron that day or not, was not something you'll be asked about on the Day of Judgment. This is not from the issue that is fundamental to our religion. And this is definitely not an issue that should divide us as an oma, there comes a time in a place where we have to grow up, we have to mature, we have to understand what's at stake. And what's important.

00:50:45--> 00:51:06

There was just an announcement being made before the CETA lecture tonight after salata, Asia, which was talking about a youth event, that's going to be, you know, gathering our families and our children and our youth together to talk to them about maintaining a Muslim identity while growing up in today's time in today's world, and growing up as a minority here in America. That's the issue on the table.

00:51:07--> 00:51:42

So rather than waste a lot of our energy, waste a lot of our breath on discussing these small little, you know, differences that we might have with each other. Why don't we focus on the bigger issues on the table? And a while Why don't we make sure that we're able to maintain our families, we're able to build solid communities were able to solidify faith and emaan within our communities, and are the individuals in our communities were able to reach out and extend a warm embrace in a welcoming gesture to the people who lie on the outskirts of our community, the people that are slipping up the back door of the oma. All right, also working on Dawa we live in a majority non

00:51:42--> 00:52:15

Muslim society. We need to understand our responsibility in terms of delivering this message to the non Muslims that live around us. All right, and in particularly our children, our youth as families as communities, that's our biggest responsibility. That's the greatest amount of loss one hotel has given us. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to benefit from the life of the messenger sallallahu Sallam May Allah want to give us true understanding of his blessed life. And may Allah Subhana Allah give us the ability to practice everything that was said and heard. inshallah next week, like I mentioned, will continue by talking about some of the miraculous events that occurred at the time of

00:52:15--> 00:52:23

the birth of the Messenger of Allah salon. He said, I'm Subhan Allah He will be humble he subhanak along with Hambrick Chateau La ilaha illa Anta a sufferer, governor to Munich
