00:00:28--> 00:00:35

So inshallah continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a skeleton of a Ouija

00:00:37--> 00:00:39

board, we'll be starting today.

00:00:40--> 00:00:56

I'd rather I should mention what we've talked about the last couple of weeks. The last couple of weeks we've been leading up to we've been talking about, literally, if you will, the days leading up to the first revelation to the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:00:57--> 00:01:39

We talked about one of the main things that occurred in the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to prepare him for the beginning of Revelation. And I've said this so many times, I really doesn't need to be reiterated, reiterated once again. But what a huge event, the beginning of revelation was, for 600 years, the doors of divine revelation had been closed guidance had not come directly from Allah subhanaw taala. And those doors were being reopened again, that in and of itself would have made it a huge significant enough of an event requiring all this build up in all this preparation. But when you factor in the simp, the this the situation, or when you take into consideration the fact that

00:01:39--> 00:02:00

not only were these doors being reopened after 600 plus years, but now these doors were being reopened to complete the message and the guidance from Allah subhanaw taala for the final time, and when they would be closed after this, they would never be opened ever again. So when you take that into consideration, you understand how significant of an event this truly was.

00:02:03--> 00:02:12

So we talked about that one of the main things that occurred with the prophets a lot a seller, he up until this point was able to live a very full, healthy,

00:02:13--> 00:03:00

productive life, a very extremely productive life a very healthy life. He had grown up in the best way possible, he had had a variety of different experiences both good and bad. He had suffered loss as a child. He had grown up throughout his youth, working, socializing, being in society, but at the same time being divinely protected from falling into any significant evils. The Prophet of Allah salon he had matured into a very intelligent young man was a very successful businessman. Once again, never cheating, never lying, never indulging into anything inappropriate. He had been married, married in a an extremely intelligent, caring, considerate woman, and had now raised his

00:03:00--> 00:03:28

kids was raising his children and had settled the family and built a home. At this point in time, the prophet of Allah sloty, somes attention turned outwards towards society. And he had been socially active he was somebody who was socially active in his community, he had taken part in the hill full, full dual, the very virtuous pact that we talked about the Prophet of Allah ceylonese, and played a significant role in the reconstruction, the renovation of the GABA, the beta law.

00:03:29--> 00:04:13

But now the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam was very concerned about what was going on with people in society. And that caused the prophets a lot easier than to seek out some time, moments isolation, to be able to ponder and to reflect and to think about what was going on, and what the truth of the matter really was. To try to figure out truth, and what is the reality of life, what is the purpose in life, and the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam in his journeys, about three miles outside of Mecca, just wandering around walking around thinking, pondering, reflecting three miles outside of Makkah, he comes across a cave, up in a mountain that is very isolated, very secluded,

00:04:13--> 00:04:30

but at the same time is perfectly situated, as I described two sessions ago, where he can see them he can see the Kaaba from the mouth of the cave. But at the same time, it's isolated enough to the point where it's not in plain sight of people. And it's just big enough for one person

00:04:31--> 00:04:53

to where this was perfect. And he went there and he sat there and he found a certain amount of peace and tranquility there. So now the Prophet of Allah salatu salam would pack up his stuff and retreat out to the cave, to go there and to seek solace and comfort and isolation and meditate and ponder and think about what's going on in the world, and what should be going on in people's lives.

00:04:54--> 00:04:56

And as the narrations mentioned,

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

the prophet of Allah Salah the sums habit of

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

Going in isolating and reflecting in the cave was during the month of Ramadan.

00:05:05--> 00:05:48

So this definitely again is divinely planned, that this focus that we enjoy even today till the month of Ramadan, and the establishment and practice of the messenger of God peace and blessings be upon him of air it gaff of isolating oneself in the masjid in the house of God for 10 days during the month of Ramadan. This goes all the way back to that time, that that habit of the Prophet system was established even as early as then, before even the first divine revelation. And so, the prophet of Allah, Allah to him is there in this cave. And he's seeking out this isolation, and he's starting to find comfort and peace and quiet and tranquility, to the point where his heart, his mind, is his

00:05:48--> 00:06:03

soul. His Spirit is prepared now to receive divine revelation. And this is where we reach the most pivotal moment in human history. The point the day where it all started, it all began.

00:06:05--> 00:06:07

And that is described as

00:06:08--> 00:06:09

the beginning of Revelation.

00:06:11--> 00:06:34

And there's a very famous a very beautiful Hadith, which is mentioned by Imam Bahati in the book in the Sahaba asahiyama of Imam Bukhari Sahih Bukhari, the famous book that we know about, it begins within the mallamma lineage. And then the very first chapter is Babel. By the way, the chapter about the beginning of Revelation. Remember, Heidi mentioned this narration

00:06:35--> 00:07:05

that it shall be a lot more Unhand she narrates. And she says, Oh, illuma Buddha be here Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Amina Ye, or wuya a sadhika. That the very first thing that began with the prophets a lot, he said, I'm from divine revelation was he started to have true dreams of what Yeah, a sadhika true dreams dreams that would be realized dreams, that would be actualized dreams that would materialize.

00:07:06--> 00:07:17

Meaning the profit or loss a lot from the night before he would see a dream. And in his dream, he would see something happen. And the next day exactly that same thing that is on his dream would occur, that would happen.

00:07:18--> 00:07:50

And this started to happen with the process of very frequently, from small little things, to even big, significant things. So much so that there's a narration, which says which we'll talk about right now. Would you believe Ali Salam came to the Prophet system in the cave of Hadar. And then the whole interaction that occurred between you between Ali Salaam and the prophets a lot SLM and the transfer of the revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala, to the profits of audition, which we'll talk about at length in detail. There are narration which say that the Prophet says, I'm actually saw that in a dream before that.

00:07:51--> 00:08:29

He had seen in a dream that an angel comes to him. And an angel does this and an angel says this, and this is exactly what transpires. And he told his wife had deja vu along with that, I'm seeing the most unbelievable things in my dream. And she comforted him. And she consulted him by saying, Don't worry, everything will have a meaning everything has a purpose. And this, the meaning and the purpose of this will very soon reveal will make itself apparent to you. But don't get scared, don't be worried by what you're seeing. So the profits, a lot of a sudden was seeing things in dreams and those dreams were being materialized. were being realized, you know, later on. Now the scholars

00:08:29--> 00:08:56

discuss at length, What's the reason? What's the purpose for this? Of course, we do know that dreams are a form of divine revelation. Even in the Quran, with Abraham Ali Solomon receives the command of sacrificing his son, he sees it in a dream, in me are often man am, I am seeing in my sleep, I am seeing and sleeping I'm seeing him the dream and he has a hunger that I am slaughtering you, I am sacrificing you.

00:08:57--> 00:09:25

So, dreams are a form of divine revelation there are means of Allah subhanaw taala communicating to the messengers and the prophets of God. But specifically this was happening very regularly and consistently. What is the reason? What is the meaning what is the purpose of this? So the scholars actually do explain that one of the reasons for this happening was Allah subhanaw taala wanted the Prophet of Allah salon, he said, um, to learn, to trust his heart.

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

He wanted him to learn to trust his heart,

00:09:31--> 00:09:41

that's not be frightened to not be threatened to not be to not doubt at any level, the thoughts or the visions or the dreams or the things that were occurring to him.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

So that he would become very, you know, he would become very focused. He would internally become extremely focused. And he would learn to reflect on what was going on in his heart. And he would learn to trust what was in his heart. And so Allah subhanaw taala would give him

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

Dreams, and those dreams would be realized. And the process of after a while learn to trust in these dreams, meaning he learned to trust his heart.

00:10:09--> 00:10:18

And so this is the very first thing that happened with the process of Roja. sodic, often known in sleep, you would see dreams that would come to reality that would come to fruition.

00:10:20--> 00:10:34

for Canada, euro for Canada, and Elijah at mithila, falaka sushi, that he would see anything that he would see in, in a dream, he would not see anything in a dream except that he would come

00:10:35--> 00:11:02

as a parent as the as the morning time. Meaning as true and as real as the morning is, when you stand up, stand out there and the sun rises in the morning occurs in as true and as real that as that is. And as believable as it is to see the daylight and to see the sun and to see the morning. That's how real the dreams of the process Some were coming true, there was no doubt about it that this is exactly what I saw last night, my dream

00:11:03--> 00:11:35

be by la Hill holla. And see this is the progression that I'm talking about the consequences and the outcome of these dreams coming through in the process of trusting growing to trust these dreams is that slowly he used to long he would desire, he would look forward to moments of quiet moments of isolation moments of reflection, because now he had something to think about. Now he wanted to reflect on what he saw and what came true. And what did that mean. So my hope is

00:11:36--> 00:11:55

he naturally wanted to be by himself more often, and to be deep in his in his thoughts more and more often. And that started happening with the process of them. For Canada, yes, new Bihari era. And he started seeking out this isolation and this reflection and meditation in the cave of Hey, don't

00:11:57--> 00:11:58

forget the hidden nothing fee

00:11:59--> 00:12:06

for it that had nothing for you. At the head north. This is a very interesting word scholars have discussed this word at length.

00:12:07--> 00:12:42

The word the happiness comes from hints and hints in the Arabic language or a Hannah foo in the Arabic language actually means to break an oath to violate an oath or a promise. And the reason why it means that it basically means to leave what you have said. So when I make a promise and when I make an oath, and I tell brother so and so that I will do this. And I don't keep my promise to him to hand or rather Hanif do, right that I have broken my promise. I left what I had said. So at the handler,

00:12:44--> 00:13:21

therefore the etymology of the word the development of the meaning is that it basically means to depart from something to leave something to pull away from something. So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam started pulling away from something. What was he pulling away from? What was he driving away from literally like drawing yourself away from something at the 100? What was he drawing away from? He was drawing away from all the corruption, ID, all the idolatry, all the idol worshipping the ship, the corruption, the facade, the chaos, that was rampant in society at that time, he needed to get away from there.

00:13:23--> 00:13:27

You see, to be able to clean something, you first kind of take it out of the mud.

00:13:28--> 00:13:38

If you drop something in dirt, or if you drop something in mud, and you want to wash it, you want to clean it off. So you dropped some jewelry, you dropped the ring or you dropped your watch

00:13:39--> 00:13:56

into a bunch of mud, and you want to clean it off and you want to wash it off. If you go and grab a water hose or you go and grab a bucket of water and you pour it on top of there. Does that accomplish what you want it to does that are that does that achieve what you've set out to accomplish? It doesn't. It's sitting in mud.

00:13:58--> 00:14:00

And then you go and you pour another bucket of water on top of it.

00:14:02--> 00:14:11

You might kind of thin out the mud a little bit, but it's still sitting in some fields. It's not completely clean, and even worse, sometimes it can muddy the waters even more.

00:14:12--> 00:14:14

What you have to do is you have to take it out you have to pull it out

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

and then you pour water on top of it. Now it's clean.

00:14:21--> 00:14:35

Now it's clean naturally, instinctively, if you step into mud, you don't leave your foot there in the mud and then pour some water you lift your foot up off the ground and you pour water on top and it washes everything off. It cleans everything off. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:14:36--> 00:14:46

Allah subhanho wa Taala pulled him out of the mud. Allah pulled him out of the pollution Allah pulled him out of all the all the noise that was going on in society.

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

And then Allah cleansed

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

and now that he was clean, and now that the heart was ready, and it was prepared. Now I was ready to receive divine revelation. So it was like this now

00:15:00--> 00:15:08

Through preparation, this emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical, preparing of a person

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

of this messenger of God, to be able to receive divine revelation.

00:15:14--> 00:15:25

So that's what the what the hundreds means. Some scholars have actually met broader narration which actually says, forget the hadn't enough food from Hanif to focus him same basic meaning to focus him

00:15:26--> 00:15:46

to focus him and prepare him. And then the eyeshadow the Allahu Anna actually herself she provides an explanation. What does it mean for you to handle foofy he, he would pull away and draw away from everything into this cave. And she explains what the word means. She says, Well what to avoid. It was to worship.

00:15:48--> 00:16:20

It was to focus. And from here we learned something very interesting that the Sahaba rhodiola I know the cream of the crop of the Sahaba the Allahu anhu, someone of the caliber of it shall be Aloha. Now, they didn't just simply consider a ritualistic act, such as a lot to be worshipped, that is worship and it's a greatest form of worship, but they considered more than that to be worshipped. They considered pulling away from a bad situation and sitting and focusing yourself meditating thinking about law reflecting on a lost power on your own spiritual condition.

00:16:22--> 00:17:05

And these types of El Mirage, Baba al Maha Sabha these concepts, they consider this to also be worshipped. And the Sahaba used to make time for these things. They will make time for this. So she says what would the upward this was a form of worship, and they are neither. He would spend many, many nights nights on and he would spend up in the cave of Kabbalah aliens or he until he would come back down to his family. We used to Zopa do these alika and then he would prepare again, to prepare himself, you know, provisions and things like that to go back. Somebody get on Jerome Ilaha de john, and then he would return back to his wife Khadija forget to Zola do the mystery Ha. And then again,

00:17:05--> 00:17:16

he would prepare to return back had that big of one up until all of a sudden one day he was there in his cave, meditating, doing his thing. And the truth came to him.

00:17:17--> 00:17:51

Reality came to him. The word Huck is a beautiful word. The word haka in the Arabic language and its roots in its origins, it actually means something that is stable, something that has a solid foundation, the word bottle batala It literally means something that is on a shaky Foundation, something that is not stable, that which was the truth, stability foundation came to him. When a lot refers to Islam as hot when Allah refers to the Quran is hot. When he says the messenger came with a Huck, he came with a foundation. The Quran is a foundation Islam is a foundation.

00:17:52--> 00:18:09

So the truth stability and the foundation came to the messenger Salafi Sunnah. Well, if he had his head off, and he was in the cave of head off, for Java Moloch, an angel came to him, an angel brought his truth and his reality to him, for Paula echo.

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

And the angel said, read.

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

The angel said, read,

00:18:17--> 00:18:18

for Allah Allah.

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

Ma Anna Bihari,

00:18:23--> 00:18:27

the prophet of Allah salatu salam said, I am not a reader.

00:18:28--> 00:18:34

Meaning I don't read, meaning I'm not one who has the ability to read.

00:18:35--> 00:18:44

Now this is explained in two ways that you can take it and the process of some, of course, definitely primarily meant it in the sense of

00:18:45--> 00:19:18

I don't know how to read and write, because the Prophet Solomon was unlettered only, that the literal definition or the more modern definition for that word would be illiterate. But of course, you know, just because of the connotation that that word illiteracy and illiterate, the connotation that that word has an English I personally don't like to use that word in English. When speaking about the Messenger of Allah salon ism because of the tone the word has an English language. That tone communicates along with the definite yes, the definition of the word is a very plain definition.

00:19:19--> 00:19:46

By definition, it wouldn't be offensive, because it's a word, but because the tone that it carries in our own in our own language. That's why unlettered is another word that can be used for that meaning, the process someone wasn't formally educated in reading and writing by someone else. That didn't take away from the intelligence that didn't take away from the eloquence because the society in that time, you would find many examples of people who maybe couldn't read and write, but they were some of the most eloquent intelligent people of their time.

00:19:47--> 00:20:00

But nevertheless, there's a divine llama contest at lumen kitasato to be aminika. It's a love taboo to learn. Right last hotel actually tells a processor that you don't read from a book and you don't write to actually with your hand in script.

00:20:01--> 00:20:38

Why? Because then that would cause doubt to the people that would allow those people who want to make trouble that would allow them to interject doubt into people's minds. So this is all part of the divine plan. So the processing was unlettered, he didn't read and write. So he's most definitely stating that fact. But at the same time, most definitely, you what you can also take and classical scholars have also talked about this, that the process is actually also kind of expressing the sentiment at that moment that like, what do you mean read? Like, I can't read like, what do you want me to read? Or what? Who are you? What are you talking about? So there's this natural apprehension

00:20:38--> 00:21:09

that the President feels at the moment, but at the same time, it is a statement of the simple fact that the Prophet of Allah azza wa jal was unlettered himself. So he says, Man, a bit party, I don't read polyphaga Danny for Hakone tabela gamini al Judah, from salani. So then the Prophet of Allah salatu salam says, For a sudden he grabbed me, this angel for hot Bunny, he literally wrapped himself completely around me to the point where he was just completely wrapped around me.

00:21:11--> 00:21:17

Like he had covered me he smothered me a good word in the English language is smother like, he just smothered me.

00:21:19--> 00:21:25

And he held on had that because the processor uses the word head that there's a via for this.

00:21:26--> 00:21:42

So he says he smothered me until the point Bulava, mini ajuda until I have basically lost all my energy, meaning I pushed back I squeezed I, I I tried to get on however I could.

00:21:43--> 00:21:48

I resisted until I completely just let go, I just gave up.

00:21:49--> 00:21:58

I could just I couldn't fight it anymore. I lost my ability to fight to resist thermal autonomy. And then he left me he released me.

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

And then you can imagine just imagine being squeezed until you can't fight it anymore. And then you just give in and then you're released and have the the error.

00:22:10--> 00:22:17

The oxygen conversion back into your lungs, the air comes rushing back into your chest, you kind of regain your senses.

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

And then the Prophet of Allah salatu salam said, he said,

00:22:22--> 00:22:23

read.

00:22:24--> 00:22:28

And again, I said my party, I don't read.

00:22:29--> 00:23:00

And the processes for any forgotten forgotten attorney at the Hata Bella mania, Judah. And then he grabbed me and then he again squeezed me and smothered me and pressed me a second time until I finally gave up through mazzoleni and then he left me and the fact is that the process of says film mathema taraki. The usage of the word film itself means that the process of he said that he squeezed me for some time for color. And then he left me release me and again there's that there's just that recovery

00:23:02--> 00:23:06

and then the process of setting a clock and then he said read

00:23:07--> 00:23:12

for Altima Anna Bihari I again told him I against him a second time I don't read

00:23:14--> 00:23:27

and then the profits a lot of assumptions for her then he forgotten Sally Tata Tata Bella mania Giada. And then again, he grabbed me and he squeezed me a third time until I just completely lost that like I gave up

00:23:28--> 00:23:30

some Arsalan he and then he left me.

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

Now

00:23:36--> 00:23:53

there's one thing here that before we obviously get to the point of everything, and we talk about everything, and we talk about the culmination of this. What I'd like to explain is what the the classical scholars their discussions based on this whole physical interaction that's going on.

00:23:54--> 00:23:55

There is a physical prep.

00:23:57--> 00:24:04

You know, along with the spiritual preparation, preparation, that spiritual preparation occurs through a physical activity.

00:24:05--> 00:24:22

And if we look today, within our Deen within the area of Islam, when we look within our Deen today and the formulation of our practices within the deen today, we see that even till today, the spiritual preparation of an individual involves some physical activity.

00:24:24--> 00:24:27

There's making we'll do this performing Salah

00:24:29--> 00:24:32

there's fasting.

00:24:33--> 00:24:40

All of this there's the rites and the pilgrimage the head, the rituals of Hajj, the procedures of Hajj.

00:24:41--> 00:24:53

So these are spiritual. These are spiritual activities there they are spiritually beneficial, but they involve some physical exertion, some physical activity, and there's a very deep connection there.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

That there is a link between the physical condition and the physical activity of a person and the impact that it has

00:25:00--> 00:25:17

On a person's faith in a person's spirituality in a person's belief, and a person's relationship with the law, at the end of the day, the condition of the heart is impacted by what goes on with the body of a person. And then the condition of the heart also dictates what comes out from the body of the person, it's very circular.

00:25:18--> 00:25:42

So what you take in and what you engage in will have an impact on your heart, and then the condition of your heart will dictate what you engage in and what you take in. It all works. It's a circle. And it works similarly. That's why the Prophet of Allah loves him when he talked about the condition of the heart. And then he talked about the channels of the heart, what you see what you hear what you say, what you are around, will impact the condition of your heart.

00:25:45--> 00:25:50

So looking at bat and listening to bat and talking about and being your own bad will corrupt the heart.

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

And being a good company affects the heart.

00:25:56--> 00:26:07

He's utterly, utterly him, I attribute that to him. And then when the author recited upon them, their demand increases, it increases them in the man, it increases them in their faith.

00:26:08--> 00:26:14

So there's a very deep connection here. And we can see this going back to the very first time, the second thing the scholars explained,

00:26:15--> 00:26:17

is a pressure is being applied.

00:26:18--> 00:26:31

And anyone that has achieved anything, intellectually, even emotionally, and especially physically, anyone that's achieved anything knows that you have to push yourself, you have to apply pressure.

00:26:33--> 00:26:39

You know, when you look at somebody with great intellectual achievement, a PhD, a doctorate, or whatever it is,

00:26:40--> 00:26:48

that required that person to intellectually applied themselves, they studied and they read until they felt like their brain was going to melt and drip out of their ears.

00:26:49--> 00:26:57

And that took that type of exertion, that physical that that applying oneself, and that pressure to reach that point, emotionally.

00:26:58--> 00:27:10

When you come across somebody who's who can handle a lot, and they've been through a lot, and that gives them the ability to be handled, to handle to take a lot, because they've been through so much.

00:27:12--> 00:27:26

You know, this ain't my first rodeo. You know, we have a saying that here, this ain't my first rodeo. Like I've been here, done that. I've dealt with this before. physically speaking, when you see somebody who Mashallah can accomplish a lot, somebody who can run 10 miles,

00:27:28--> 00:27:32

you know, that they didn't just wake up one morning and say, Bismillah

00:27:33--> 00:27:40

You know, it didn't happen that way. They push themselves and push themselves and push themselves to the point where they got to that level. That's how that works.

00:27:41--> 00:27:45

And so spiritually speaking, you see the pressure being applied.

00:27:46--> 00:28:09

We have to spiritually push ourselves. You see where I sit today, right now, when somebody tells me praying five times a day, and I'm like, brother, very difficult, I can't do it. I can't take it. It seemed, you know, it was sitting here right now for me, it might see like, if I don't pray five times a day, and so I hear about praying five times a day, how am I gonna do that? It's not practical. It's not possible. I have to push myself.

00:28:10--> 00:28:18

When I see somebody who prays to God and prays up and prays beyond during the nighttime, man, how do you do that? That's what they push themselves, they got to that point.

00:28:20--> 00:28:34

So it takes a bit it takes applying oneself and enduring pressure and enduring a lot of, you know, a lot of pressure in order to reach a certain point. And that's exactly what was going on here with the process and with the applying of pressure.

00:28:36--> 00:28:42

Because you see, as in the story is in the case of Musa alayhis salam. When you read the beginning of Surah Taha

00:28:44--> 00:28:48

You see, Allah subhanaw taala taught musala Salam eemaan like that.

00:28:51--> 00:28:53

He taught him on an innocent

00:28:54--> 00:28:58

you don't along less than any man that we might learn over a lifetime.

00:29:00--> 00:29:03

Allah because a prophet and a messenger of God doesn't have the luxury of time.

00:29:04--> 00:29:09

They have to deliver the message. So let's find out what Allah gives him the, the quick route

00:29:11--> 00:29:14

gives him the short course instant.

00:29:16--> 00:29:28

And last was Elisa what's your handle? musawah mochica what's in your right handle Moosa Bella here as is my staff of Allah. And then he talks about the benefits of it the What does Allah say? Allah says,

00:29:29--> 00:29:31

throw it toss it, let it go.

00:29:33--> 00:29:37

So he drops it after just talking about the benefits of it and what does it turn into?

00:29:38--> 00:29:44

here to Tessa, a big fears moving snake.

00:29:46--> 00:29:47

Like it's moving around.

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

You ever seen the steak move? It's terrifying. You know how why we so comfortably look at snakes when we go to the zoo. He's just sitting there. So we go up to the glass when we go

00:30:01--> 00:30:02

Hey you

00:30:03--> 00:30:18

it's almost the move. We'd have to go clean up in the restaurant. Right? You break your will do that's how it works right? A snake moving is really really like scares you it catches you off guard

00:30:20--> 00:30:24

so imagine he just drops it and it's boom it's moving rapidly

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

imagine how frightening that would be

00:30:28--> 00:30:39

something good just turned into something bad. What does Allah say to do when something bad run away as your instincts are telling you could have grabbed grab it and don't be afraid.

00:30:40--> 00:30:45

So Allah did the command wasn't just normal wasn't just grab it. It was grabbing and don't be afraid.

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

Like a snake?

00:30:50--> 00:30:52

No, no, no, we'll take care of it, send our a do hasira Tallulah.

00:30:54--> 00:31:05

So when he grabs it, and he's not afraid and grabs it with confidence Bismillah what happens, turns back into his staff turns back into something beneficial, human complete.

00:31:06--> 00:31:09

Just like that, instant charger,

00:31:10--> 00:31:13

instant charger, Eman complete,

00:31:15--> 00:31:30

ready to go. And so that's how Allah subhanaw taala prepares. Mashallah, that's how he prepares prophets. So that a pressure has been applied by who Juba de la la sala de la la Santa

00:31:32--> 00:31:36

who can destroy entire civilizations in one swoop.

00:31:37--> 00:31:39

him applying pressure.

00:31:41--> 00:32:00

So the profits awesome is being prepared instantly that all that pressure in three times all that pressure in three instances has been like a lifetime of pressure is being applied within those three quick shots. Those three quick instances to prepare the process are set up, ready to go instantly.

00:32:02--> 00:32:11

The next thing that the scholars explained about the deep wisdom of this hatanaka menial Jota the processor mentioned it until I just

00:32:13--> 00:32:17

I just gave in. Press press press until I couldn't press more and I just gave it

00:32:19--> 00:32:22

I reached my peak. And I just gave him

00:32:24--> 00:32:25

and giving in is the key.

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

You push back.

00:32:29--> 00:32:39

See I was pinata put a very decent fitrah inside of us that accepts but Allah subhanaw taala wrapped that fitrah inside of that knifes that resists.

00:32:41--> 00:32:46

And what happens if you resist and resist and resist but you're always basically so you got to break something in.

00:32:47--> 00:32:51

You know, when you first buy a book, and you open the book, what happens?

00:32:54--> 00:32:57

It needs to be broken in. So what do you do, you open it and then you

00:32:59--> 00:33:05

write you put the flat the ball of your hand there and you press hard back and forth back and forth. You break it in

00:33:07--> 00:33:09

so that when you open that book, it stays open.

00:33:12--> 00:33:16

And that that's the case with anything that we use anything that we do, you got to break it in.

00:33:18--> 00:33:19

You have to break it in.

00:33:20--> 00:33:24

Similarly, we have to spiritually get broken in.

00:33:27--> 00:33:32

we've pushed back and we push back on we push back until we realize what's good for us. And then we give in.

00:33:33--> 00:33:49

And now you're ready to take. Now you're ready to take there's so many examples of this from the life of the Prophet syllogism. I'm going to have Barbara de la mano, just this past weekend I was at a conference at a talk about her alma mater de la mano a mano a mano had to be broken in even to accept Islam

00:33:51--> 00:34:26

had to be broken in because of who he was and how he was yet to be broken in. I told you in the car sessions, we've covered the story, you can go back and listen to it in the recordings. We've covered the story but Armando Delano being passed out intoxicated, and then somebody sacrificing that goat and into the goat talks up and talks about believing in Allah and Allah, you know, Muhammad Rasulullah. And I was like, Oh my god, he turns over and goes back to sleep. Right? He's like, Oh, never mind. Let me just let me just try to forget about this. There's another story where I'm reading a loved one who says that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when kind of some noise started

00:34:26--> 00:34:47

being created about Okay, this man Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, this man, Mohammed Abdullah, he's saying this and he's doing this and he's preaching this. And he says he came into the Kaaba one time. And because the system had the protection of his family, he used to come and pray in the huddle. They couldn't mess with him, you would pray in the huddle, but he couldn't openly really preach and he couldn't bring Muslims to bring the harm because they would, they would murder those Muslims.

00:34:48--> 00:35:00

Right? But but the promises haven't had that protection from his families who come and pray in the home. So he says he came in he was praying. And I looked at him and I said, Okay, that's the guy that all the fuss is about that what's going on? What's the big deal?

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

See what the big deal is?

00:35:03--> 00:35:04

So he says he started walking up to him

00:35:06--> 00:35:13

and when he got close to him behind him he was coming from behind him he got closer with the processor was offering Salah, and in his salon he was reciting sort of to have

00:35:16--> 00:35:17

salted haka. So number 69.

00:35:19--> 00:35:21

And the profits along he said he was saying,

00:35:24--> 00:35:26

in the hula pony Rosalind, Corinne

00:35:27--> 00:35:47

towards the end of Sultan hapa that it most definitely is the word of a very Noble Messenger. And he said, When I heard that, I was like, Oh, my God, Ilana says in my mind, I didn't verbally say but in my mind when I heard him say, in hula boluda, zulian Kareem when I heard him say that in my mind, I thought, No, it's not.

00:35:48--> 00:35:56

Oh, it's not get out of here. It's just a bunch of poetry. Just a bunch of fancy talk. It's poetry. That's what it is.

00:35:58--> 00:36:04

And the process of recited the next ayah which is mama who will be totally shy.

00:36:06--> 00:36:10

It's not the word of a poet. kalila magic means

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

very little Do y'all believe?

00:36:15--> 00:36:22

He said, I it's like a slap in the face. You don't get slapped in the face and you're not expecting it. You're looking here and

00:36:23--> 00:36:27

right. So I literally stumbled. I was like, What?

00:36:28--> 00:36:33

Because how do you know what I was? inserting was? How do you know what I was thinking? How do you know what I was thinking?

00:36:35--> 00:36:45

I know what's up? He's a magician. He's a soothsayer. He's a spooky man. Right? Like there's something of there's something fishy or there's something spooky going on with this guy.

00:36:46--> 00:36:49

And the process and we're excited the next time Well, I'll be only guy in.

00:36:51--> 00:37:03

He's not a soothsayer. He's not a magician. He's not a fortune teller. He's not one Magic Man. But he lamotta Karun very little Do you listen very little Do you understand and pay attention to?

00:37:05--> 00:37:08

And he said, I just stumbled back a little bit more. I was like, Oh my god, what's going on here?

00:37:12--> 00:37:17

He said, Now at this point, I got no answers. I'm like, it's not poetry. It's no magic stuff.

00:37:21--> 00:37:26

And the process of recited the next day at dunsey loom Mirabella on me alami

00:37:28--> 00:37:32

it is being revealed it is revelation from the Lord of the worlds.

00:37:35--> 00:37:39

And he said, I just turned around from there and I walked off and I said, You best forget about this.

00:37:42--> 00:37:55

And then finally, when he barges into his sister's home, on the way to assassinate the Prophet of Allah loves him, and he barges into his sister's home. And he picks up the the Scripture and he reads the ayat of Surah Taha.

00:37:58--> 00:37:59

He just got broken into.

00:38:01--> 00:38:07

You see, that's what finally broke him in. Then he said that, that's, that's it, I gotta go. Now.

00:38:09--> 00:38:17

Sometimes we need to be broken in spiritually. And that happened with the process of not once, three times really quickly. Boom, boom, boom.

00:38:19--> 00:38:23

The night you just take now you just receive. Now you just take in.

00:38:25--> 00:38:39

And it got the process up to that point. One last wisdom and Hickman mentioned here. He says Hata Bella menial Judah, film salani. And then each time to process him says, however, then he would release me,

00:38:40--> 00:38:48

then he would release me he'd let me go. The wisdom in that the scholars say though is that yes, there's truth to all of these things.

00:38:49--> 00:38:53

You have to, you know, you, the first thing we mentioned was

00:38:56--> 00:39:12

that you have to be applied pressure to pressure you have to exert yourself, you have to take some pressure, you have to push yourself. Number two, it has to be broken into it's going to take a couple of times it's going to take a little while, but you'll get broken into like just like that book gets broken into.

00:39:14--> 00:39:25

Like you break that book into you break you break in that book. But the third thing the wisdom hears from selenium, selenium RC, but he would release the processor um, to be able to,

00:39:26--> 00:39:28

to recover to to get back.

00:39:30--> 00:39:35

That you also have to be careful that you don't push yourself too hard, too fast, too far too quickly.

00:39:38--> 00:39:53

Because you have to take the humanity in your own weakness and your own human side into consideration that he would press the process of until you would let go and he would leave you'd release the press him until he let go and then you release him and you press them until you let go and then you release them.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

Now the processor is at that peak of spiritual that condition is

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

Virtual condition is at its peak

00:40:03--> 00:40:05

for color and then he said

00:40:06--> 00:40:21

in Santa Millennium and he taught the human being that now we know what he taught now specifically against the crossbar now he taught the human being what did he teach the human being malam yalom, that which he didn't know.

00:41:36--> 00:41:42

That was he was not aware of that which he did not realize he did not understand.

00:41:43--> 00:41:47

And this initial revelation was given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:41:49--> 00:42:28

We're going to go ahead and inshallah pause here in the next session, because the next part of the narration requires a lot of discussion, a lot of detail, just like we discussed this in detail. It requires a lot of, there's a lot of things to explain and expound upon as to what was the course of action? What what course of action did the process take after this life altering event, this complete change? What did he do? Where did he go? What did he say what occurred what transpired with him immediately following this very, very profound and a lot for us to learn after that, so we'll take it one step at a time so that we can note the lessons we can extract the lessons and we can

00:42:28--> 00:42:41

internalize those lessons in those realizations and we can inshallah, implement them and realize them in our own lives. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that's been said and heard, so Han Allah you will be hungry he subhanak Allahu Hambrick.
