In the previous session that we had, we were covering the very monumental occasion of the first revelation upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And of course, I mean, it goes without saying, this is something that all of us sitting here, we obviously understand that we realize what a great moment that was. Not only was it probably the greatest moment and the most profound occasion from the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but it very well could be called one of, you know, the greatest moment in human history. It's the greatest turning point in the history of the world, that the greatest prophet, the finality of prophethood, and the greatest of the messages of God, and
the greatest miracle that humanity has ever witnessed all of that was engaged on that one day, all of that was initiated on that one day. And for those who have been listening to or attending the sessions that we've been doing over the last 30, some odd sessions or whatever. One thing we've been noting is that one of the things I've tried to communicate in these sessions is that the journey of the profits colonies, and up till this point, was not some random occurrence of history. It wasn't just some random convergence of different events, leading up to all of a sudden out of the blue, for no reason whatsoever with no preparation at all. Then the message comes to the prophets allottee
Center, but rather when we study the life of the prophets a lot, intricately, and we meticulously look at every aspect of his life, we began to understand one thing that Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sacem was meant for this from the very beginning of his creation, his existence, like we read the narrations Yeah, howdy Thema. Mohammed no humble has mentioned many of these narrations and I have eaten as Muslims were when the prophets a lot of a sudden was asked
that material and a vegan that when were you made a prophet and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that I was made a profit when Adam was in between the state of, you know, dust or the clay. And before the, the soul was breathed into other, that at that point in time I was made a profit, meaning that from that time on from the very earliest exit from the beginning of human beings existence, when Allah subhanaw taala created the human being, Allah subhanaw taala had designated the fact that the finality of his message and Prophethood would come at the hands of this amazing man named Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So everything has been leading up and building up to this point. So it's a great moment. It's it's momentous. And it's a it's a huge turning point. And it's a realization of so many things, little little things that were happening throughout the life of the process, some little things that he was constantly coming across and feeling and happening to him. And now everything is materializing. And everything is being realized. And so at this point in time last session, which was two weeks ago, we talked about the exact occasion we talked about, how about six months before the first revelation, the prophet SAW some started to have dreams, and those dreams would come true. So he would see
dreams and those dreams would be realized. And this was, as I mentioned, the prophets of Salaam as mentioned that this would happen with all the prophets and all the messengers. This is how Allah would prepare them for divine revelation. Because, you know, one thing that's that's a bit of one issue that we have, as a community in the city of Sierra, the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is, and I understand where this comes from. It comes from admiration and adoration for this great, remarkable man, the greatest human being that ever walked the face of this earth. We have so much admiration for the prophets, a lot of them that at times, we can,
you know, think of and we can talk of the prophets a lot. He said them in very superhero like terms. I remember when we did the intro to the seat at the beginning of the series I talked about, especially in this culture, especially right now, you know, we're in this culture that we have today in entertainment, where we have, you know, superheroes and things like that, that there's this type of fascination. So people see Superman, right? He's invincible. He doesn't feel anything, nothing happens to him. He's invincible. And so a lot of times what begins to happen is that kind of warps our understanding and our own reality. So when we talk about the process of them the profits a lot
lesson was remarkable. He was the most amazing complete human being that ever lived.
Having said that, Allah subhanaw taala still left him open. It is by the willing to
decree of Allah that Allah subhanaw taala left still left him open
to pain to difficulty, that Allah subhanaw taala allowed for him to experience difficulty adversity, pain, disappointment, these types, the human experience was still there, with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he bled, he cried.
And so when we look at it from the human perspective, you have to understand how shocking and how overwhelming and how, you know, earth shattering, this experience could be for someone, you're going about your business, you're doing what you normally do, and then out of the blue out of nowhere, an angel comes to you,
and gives you the Word of God. It's very possible that it could, it could actually, you know, fracture, it could damage someone's even psyche, it could cause severe trauma to a person. So Allah subhanaw taala, created a system where the prophets and the messengers, they would be gradually acclimated to this experience, that there was a warm up exercise, if you will, leading up to this great experience. And one of those warm up exercises was that for six months,
prior to the first revelation, that they would see dreams and those dreams would come to fruition, they would come to reality. Right, and they would have it would occur exactly as they had seen in the dream. And what this naturally did was once thought once had happened, okay, maybe you just kind of think that it's just my mind playing tricks on me. twice, it happens, maybe it's a coincidence, three, four or five for six months straight. When this happens, you start to realize something is going on here. And the biggest thing that happens is you begin to trust your heart. The next time you see a dream, you expect it to happen.
You expect this to actually happen. So this was so that the prophets, a lot of them would trust his heart.
That his mind the world around him, the people around him, everyone would tell him, none of what you think you've seen is obviously not true. There's no way this could be true. But he would learn to trust his heart to the point where when he had that interaction, he had that exchange, would you believe he knew it was true?
Because he trusted his own heart. And so that's what was going on with the Prophet seltzer. Um, then again, we talked about how slowly he drew more inclined towards finding times to isolate himself from people and from the elements around him. He started to desire he started to want to spend time alone, when in reality, it's not really time spent alone. From a human from a social perspective, it's spending time alone but in reality, time spent alone is actually time spent with
time spent with Allah. That's what Salah is. That's what Salah is. You disengage from the entire world around you. Spending time top quality time alone, but you're not really spending time alone. You're spending time with Allah. maraca Vicar, Salah, do our recitation of Quran. This is time spent with Allah but you it from a worldly perspective, from a social perspective, it's time spent alone. So to again, make the prophets a lot easier more comfortable with this element. Because the Prophet says him was a very deep thoughtful human being.
By no means was the prophets a lot he sent him some overindulging social, you know, socially like, really, you know, the process of wasn't like a party animal or something. The prophet SAW some wasn't like an overly like social person who just all the time was talking in public and the center of attention to processing wasn't like that he was a very profound, deep, thoughtful human being from childhood
is very reflective, we talked about this.
But at the same time, the processing was also a very caring human being
a very caring and considerate human being, which meant that the processes did pay a lot of attention to his family members. He did spend a lot of time with his family, he spent a lot of time with his uncle, with his wife with his children.
He spent a lot of time you know, even caring for people taking care of people.
When people would have a need, when people have a situation, they would feel comfortable to come and speak to him and talk to him. And he would sit with them and he would give them time, quality time. And he would help people. So he was so much at the service of people and his family members and the people around him and society and his family that at the same time, you know, to to embrace the experience of prophethood because we know what what's that beautiful remark that the family of the prophets, a lot of some notes about him that the process was very loving and very comfortable and very casual and very accessible at home. very accessible at home. But when the time would be called
they see that it's like he would become a stranger to all of us.
He was a man on a mission. It was time to go for Salah was time to pray.
So to prepare the prophets, a lot of them for that as well, that you will have time you will have to spend time with ally in this manner that he started seeking out seclusion, isolation in the cave of hate all primarily during the month of Ramadan, the take off in the month of Ramadan was even used to prepare the profits a lot is affordable and rissalah for profit. And it's a some of the promises and they're persistent till the very end of his days.
So now when he's in the cave of hate all on this one occasion, and this was during the 14th year of the prophets, Allison's life. This was the 40th year of his life, he was 40 years old at the time, there is actually some, there is some discussion amongst classical scholars as to, was he a little bit younger? Or was he a little bit older? Some of the classical scholars, you know, he was 3637 years old, some say no, he was about 40 to 43 years old. The reason why that little and this, these are minority positions, but the reason why this comes up is because immediately following profited, there was about two and a half, almost three, three, there was about two to three years of a time
period, where it was very quiet, it was very silent, there wasn't a lot of active preaching and a lot of active dialogue going on. And there was even very little to no revelation during this time, because the prophets of Allah was being given time to completely fully embrace this whole role in this experience. And so based on that, they kind of timeline it differently. So those scholars who say that know the process and was 40 to 43 years old when revelation began when he became a prophet, because they're not counting that initial time period. They count that as the build up to Revelation, those who say no, he was, you know, 3637 years old or 38 years old, and some narrations,
they basically start counting from the very first time he started going to the cave of Hadar.
So from the very first time, he started going to the cave of Arab descent, Nobu I began. So it's basically just semantics there is the immediately Cobain and newzoo, there is the time immediately prior to the first revelation,
then there is a revelation and then there is the immediate aftermath.
There is the if you will some time off after the first revelation to allow the process to fully embrace and recover from this experience. So it's basically just it's understandable why that range exists, because scholars are basically marking the beginning of prophethood, either from the first time he went to the cave and paid off, or they're counting it from the first time he started preaching openly.
But in reality, it's in the middle right there. Because the first time you went to the cave of head all he was preparing for this experience, then the first revelation occurred. And then the process of started preaching publicly, a couple of years down the road when that command came from a last kind of retailer, and when he was ready for it as well, because it came with a whole slew of other issues. So this is a little bit of a discussion here now. So it was the 14th year of his life.
When did the first revelation occur? So the first revelation occurred on a Monday.
The first revelation occurred on a Monday, and this is well established, well documented through many different variations and from the prophets alarmism when he was asked about fasting on Mondays, because the prophets a lot of him was very particular about fasting on Mondays, when he was asked about fasting on Mondays and profits. A lot of them said, that's the day that I was born on. And that's the day that I received first revelation.
So it wasn't Monday. What month was it? The vast overwhelming majority of the thought of classical scholarship is of the opinion that it was the month of Ramadan.
It was a month of Ramadan as evidence even as half in a zero directly actually correlates this to the eye of the Parana shadow Ramadan and Lady Angela field. And I know in the Tafseer of the eye, if you ever sit down and read or study or listen to that the fear of that idea into the fear of that is there's also mentioned that no, this could also be talking about when the Quran was brought down to some dunya
semi dunya. That was in the local food. The Quran was in the preserved tablets, and it was sent down to the heavenly skies, excuse me, the earth, the sky of the earth.
It was sent down to the lowest of the heavens, he was sent down to the sky of the earth and it was positioned there to be revealed to the prophets a lot over the span of 23 years. So some scholars say when Allah says that the month of Ramadan in which Allah sent down the that the Quran was sent down in Shahada Ramadan Allah the moons in a field or on the month of Ramadan in which the Quran was sent down. The movers you don't say that? No, the event that this is talking about the sending down of the Quran. This means that it was sent down from the preserve tablet into law, and it was sent down to the sky of this dunya of this world, the earthly sky and it was sent down to there so that
it could be revealed down to the profits a large him with convenience and ease.
However, this does not preclude the fact because you see there's a very simple rule of Quranic interpretation Quranic exegesis
There's a very simple rule and that is when the language of the Quran is general.
We can have our headings we can have narrations, we can have situations, we can have us Bible noon, we can have situations at the time of Revelation.
And all of those will point to a very specific incident in a specific case. But as long as the language of the Quran does remain general, we do not restrict the meaning and the interpretation of the ayah.
So for instance, if you know this ayah very clearly very generally says, The month of doctrine in the month of Ramadan in which the Quran was sent down
the month of Ramadan in which the Quran was sent down. That's it, it generally says that. So based on that narration, that it was sent down from the local food to the sky of the dunya, yes, we can take that as one meaning of it, you understand the difference, we don't take that as the only meaning because the language of the Quran is general, but we take that as one of the meanings of it, it is one of the applications of it, but as long as the language of the Quran remains general and it is not specific to this instance. Then we will leave the meaning of the eye open to other cases, other situations and other instances at the same time. Very other a good practical example of this
is when you read an eye of the Quran, when you read, you're reading some passages that are on, you know, there's the ayah from certain for upon
where you may outlive Allah de la marzulli Sevilla, Yahweh Allah tala tala Mata Fulani and kalila there are basically talks about a person under the age of gentlemen who will not his own arm off because he will feel regret and remorse and he will say I wish I would have gone with the Prophet. I wish I would have taken up the profits cause like I would have joined up with the Prophet I would have followed the messenger. And then he says, I wish he could hurt himself in his hair. I wish I never took this guy to be my friend.
I wish I never took that guy to be my friend. Now there is a narration which says this is talking about well may have been hauled off in Abuja, who may have been holla very good friends with a Buddha, who may have been Halifax really considered thought about accepting Islam. So he went and he spoke to his best friend, his childhood buddy Abu Jamal, what do you think Abu Jamal said, Yeah, I think it's a good idea. Of course not. A Buddha said don't don't even dare make that mistake. That's terrible. How could you even think about that. So may have been kind of felt the pressure being applied to him his peer pressure, he felt pressure from his best friend. And he didn't accept Islam
and the end and ended up dying without EMA. And so then the scholars say that this is talking about who may have been colophon the Day of Judgment, and the severe regret and remorse and regret and remorse it wive that's a narration. This is talking about omegamon holla, from Abuja. And it comes from a narration. But the wording of the is general.
It explicitly is very general, which means it could apply to any other friend, it could apply to anybody else in their friend. So we keep it open, we leave it open, allow it to remain open. And of course, this is part of the miraculous nature of the Quran. The Quran can be talking about multiple things at the same time. That's the beauty of it. I oftentimes asked people as a you know, in speech and rhetoric, there's a concept called the double entendre. When you say something, it actually means two things at the same time. And people think they're very intelligent or smart when they say something like that, people understand one thing and said I meant that the other way around. Right.
So if human beings are capable of saying two things at the same time, what about our last panel Donna? So the eye of the neuron so even is how can I see ra specifically relates this incident to this ayah that the month of Ramadan in which the Quran was sent down? So the scholars say that the first revelation Acropolis Mirabella, the hillock was also in the month of Ramadan? It was in the month of Ramadan
at the same time, now what was the exact day in the month of Ramadan? So now there's a whole array of different opinions. Some say that it was the 14th night Some say that it was the 17th night. Some scholars say no is the 21st night Some say it was the 27th night? Well luckily to Allah Allah. Allah knows best exactly what it exactly was. But even this, how himself leans towards the position that it was a 21st night
in his Hakan many of the other classical scholars of the Sierra, the life of the prophets, a lot of the some who have documented his life, they heavily leaned towards the fact that it was a 21st night of that month of Ramadan in the 40th year of the prophets, Allah isms life. So that's when this first revelation took place. In the previous session, we talked at length about this whole experience where the prophet SAW Selim was in this cave, and the intelligibility Donny Salaam came to him.
And it started the process on where did this man come from? Why is he here? What's he doing here?
And then it talks about how gibreel alayhi salam told the prophets a lot he sent them to
And the prophets, a lot of them objected, saying, I don't read.
Like I don't read, stating a fact I don't.
And gibreel Allah His Salam then squeeze the Prophet so so when I talked about how it was applying that pressure, because you have to understand the profits, a lot of him is being taken from zero to 60. And instantly.
That's something like, when you talk to anybody else about accepting Islam or learning their Deen, you know that there's a whole journey, there's a whole process human beings require a certain amount of time. But with messengers with profits, there's not that luxury.
So in an instance, they have to achieve something that would take lifetimes to achieve.
And so this is almost that transference from jabril, ali Salaam to the profits a lot. Hmm. So he squeezes them and applies pressure. And the system says that he squeezed me until I just gave up.
He was breaking him down, literally getting him to just let go. Just give in. Leave the apprehensions, leave the hesitation, leave everything else behind and just give into this experience, embrace this experience a lot this app, enter into your heart and internalize this. So he says he squeezed me until I just gave up.
And then the profits are and then he said, he left me for a moment. Let me catch my breath. And we talked about last time how that's very important that sometimes a person takes time requires time.
That interval in between is very key, very important. Let him catch his breath. Because the purpose here is not to kill him.
The purpose here is not to destroy him.
But the purpose is to prepare him. And then second time he told me read and he said that I can't read I don't read my story. So then he says he again, he squeezed me until I just gave up a menial job.
And then he left me and I caught my breath from out of salani. And then he said again, he told me to read. And I said MonaVie, I don't read for the third time I told him
and he squeezed me again until I gave up and then he left me he released me.
And then he told me
this miracle, Larry,
read, and that the share of this is very interesting, because the bar can also be considered babyliss deonna, which means the bar of assistance. So read with the help of the name of your Lord, I
mean, the only way you'll be able to do this is through the help of your Lord read with by the help of the name of your Lord.
And he says Acropolis may have become the one who created it doesn't say what he created because he created everything, anything.
And then victory has got an arm and then specifically says
Acropolis Mirabella, the Haleakala in Santa Monica, Allah
created, he created the human being from a blood clot from a clot of blood
ikura bukal, Accra,
that read, and your Lord is the Most dignified, the most honorable. Allah the unnamable column, the one who taught using the pen, it didn't say what he taught, because he talked to him being everything he knows. But then Allah subhanaw taala specifically says LML in Santa mallamma, Allah, He taught the human being that which he didn't know.
And this basically, you have to understand, aside from these I had been so fundamental, so profound, that they define everything, but to the profits a lot. He said, we also have to understand what it means in that instance, you are being made a profit, your inner physically interacting with an angel, you are receiving the Word of God.
You are directly communicating with Allah subhanaw taala, all of this that is going on, he's simply being told that don't let any of this cause any apprehension to you because Allah subhanaw taala created everything.
And he created the human being from something as insignificant as a clot of blood. All of this is the arrangement of Allah. So this is all been arranged by Allah just like everything around you, the world that you live in, has been created by Allah.
And as far as you learning something new, something you didn't know before, then understand a lot of the human being everything that the human being knows and has, and this has been a part of that.
This is also being taught to you by Allah subhanaw taala directly, so have no fear have no apprehensions of this experience. Now we talked about this. So now the prophets a lot of the sentiment says for rajabi had also the law has allowed him to do Foo Foo other who I do know this is the narration, the actual narration that's found in Sahih Bukhari as well, that the prophets a lot he said him now came back with this revelation with this burden and this weight that he's carrying the urge to fulfill. His heart was just just, it was it was shaking. His heart was shaking.
He was filled with all these different emotions going through his heart.
You can just imagine what a person would be going through after experiencing something like this. So the profits allottee some returns back. There are other narrations now, there are other narrations which are found that are supplementary to this notion which are all authenticated, that actually say that when the person who started returned back from here, and he's leaving the Cave of Haydar, he starts to think to himself, and the prophet SAW some says, I never had as much like the people that are really really used to have a strong dislike for were some of the very misguiding misleading poets, soothsayers, fortune tellers, I never liked people like that, because I felt like they preyed
on the weak, they preyed on people's ignorance and people people's insecurities. I didn't like people like that. And it goes, I've been through this whole experience, and I'm still trying to deal with it and grapple with it. And I was like, What just happened with me, it goes, I never want to be that type of a person. I've just been through a very tremendous experience. But I don't want to be that type of person who will be affiliated or associated with such people. I don't want to fall into that same predicament, and sit at the profit zone started climbing up a mountain, that he started climbing up the mountain, he started to think to himself that rather than ever take advantage of
only one like with this ever again, I'd rather go and just kill myself. But then abuse what has been given to me or do anything bad. So you see the profitsystem, from the very beginning felt this way? Can I live up to the responsibility that's been given to me? Can I live up to what is being expected of me?
Can I can I give it what it deserves?
can I serve this cause this mission, this message properly?
Am I worthy or not.
And so the process says that, you know, as he as soon as he left there, he started to think this himself, I don't want to be someone like that. So he started climbing up a mountain top.
And thinking to himself, I'd rather kill myself, destroy myself, then then abused what has been entrusted to me.
And he says, as he was because you have to understand what a person is going through at that time.
And as in this is another aspect of setting the cedaw. Because this is this story is, you know, one, this is something that Muslims are told from childhood, this is something we've heard hundreds of times. So a lot of times we take it for granted. But if you really try to understand the human experience of what that must have been like, you can just imagine.
So the process has all these thoughts racing through his heart and his mind. And he's climbing up this mountain, thinking this himself. And he says, all of a sudden, I heard someone speaking to me from above me.
And he said, Yeah, Muhammad
said, Oh, Muhammad
In the karasuno law,
you are the Messenger of God, what energy believe in if you believe,
and the prophets awesome, says, I looked up to see where I was hearing the sound from. And this is one of the first of the two occasions on which the prophets alone, they set them aside, you believe in his true, actual physical form.
And the prophets a lot of times described what he saw.
And then the other instances, actually,
it's also in the very beginning part of the, the period of prophethood. So we'll be probably coming to that, and hopefully, in a few sessions, we'll talk about that one there. But nevertheless, I'll tell you the full description of what the process was. A lot of the description actually comes from the second occasion, the second time, but I'll explain it here. The process of sudden explains that his feet were on the ground
when narration says that his feet were slightly above the ground.
But he says his head was all the way up into the clouds in the sky.
The profits awesome describes your video, Alison is having 600 wings, and another occasion
600 wings. And the profitsystem says that when you open two of his wings, it covered the entire horizon from the east to the west.
And so the prophecy ism says I looked up and I saw gibreel in the sky. And he says, I look to the right. And I could all I could still see was God. He says I looked to the left, and all I could see was Djibouti. And the process of says, Oh, it was so overwhelming that I almost wanted to see this guy.
Just to be able to just kind of
i saw i wouldn't feel like overwhelmed. I wanted to see this guy. I felt like I needed to catch my breath like see this guy braces everywhere I turned all I could see was debris, he covered everything.
All I saw was debris.
And he was telling me he says you are the Messenger of Allah.
Don't have any doubts about this fact. You are the Messenger of Allah and I'm gibreel I'm here
I'm the one who came to you. I'm the one who was there with you when you receive that first message.
Don't worry about it and that's why the promises and refers to do you believe alehissalaam as one of his best friends?
They says I have two buddies I have two homies in the sky Do you believe in McAfee? And he says I have to on the earth Abu Bakr.
radi Allahu Allah. So this is gibreel Ali Salaam, with whom the process of shared a very, you know, deep friendship.
And so he's letting him know goes No, no, you're the Messenger of Allah. Yeah, Mohammed, you're the Messenger of Allah, and I'm your friend, you bleed. Don't worry, relax, calm down.
So he said, as overwhelming as even that experience was he said it kind of this is strange type of calmness kind of washed over me.
And the profitsystem says he returned home to his wife, Khadija de la Mancha.
He says But still, he was obviously still very shaken up. And he says that he came home and he sat down.
And he told his wife zemi loonies and Maloney
Cover me up, cover me up,
wrapping up in a shawl in a blanket. For somebody new who had about an hour, they wrapped him up in the blanket until he finally just kind of calmed down a little bit more.
Then he spoke to hajia it said beautifully, something profound, we learned even about, you know, spousal relations, and we learn about how to interact and how to deal with certain situations in cases. Khadija the alarm was one of the most amazing human beings. You know, what was one of the most amazing women was one of the most amazing human beings that ever lived. And she was one of the best wives that ever lived.
In Saudi Arabia law and the prophets of Salaam came home in this condition, this date, she covered it up, wrapped him up in a shawl in a blanket and said, she sat down next to him.
And she didn't print what happened, what happened, what's going on what's going on? What's going on? Now she didn't she didn't press him. She gave him time. And the Prophet tells him until he just relaxed he calmed down.
And then she just sat there next to him. She was just there for him holding his hand
until the Prophet cism. Then himself started to tell her the de la de la now what exactly happened, what had transpired.
And then he tells her exactly what had occurred. And the prophet SAW Some said la Takashi to Allah and
I feared for my life.
I feared for my life, I thought this experience would just it would kill me.
I feared for my life.
I didn't have the love and has folks some of the most amazing words that any human being has ever spoken. After, of course, the messengers of Allah, these are some of the most amazing words that any human being has ever spoken. She said, Carla, she's another No, absolutely not. Under no circumstances should you fear for your life.
One lucky I swear by Allah. La You see, kawagoe evidence alone will not ruin you alone will not disgrace you.
In Nikola Tesla,
because you maintain very good strong relations with your family.
What tocreate life and you honor your guests. You honor your guests. What that means.
And you carry the weight and the burdens of people.
What taxable matter Do
you take care of people who are less fortunate who can't take care of themselves, you take care of them?
What's your aim law even help and you're always looking for any good cause. And you're always there to aid and to help in any good cause that presents itself to you.
Khadija, Ravi Allahu anhu. When she said these words as as amazing as they guard the profits or some it, it again had a very calming effect on the profits a lot so
she she she consoled the profits or sentiment and she strengthened the profits, a lot of them through her words. And the process of them felt more comfortable more confident.
After that, it said that when some narration say da da da, da da, da da initially she went to go see what acaba nofal. herself. What acaba nofal was the cousin of Khadija radi Allahu Allah.
He was a cousin of Khadija rhodiola. Why now I believe he's spoken about him. In one of the early early sessions, when we're talking about pre Islamic Arabia. We talked about the hunt if there was a handful of people who still worshipped a very, you know, they basically worshipped as pure as possible, they still worship one God, and they were trying to stick as strictly as they could to the actual teachings of the prophets of the past. So there was literally a handful of such people. And what have I been known for was one of them, who had traveled to the areas of a shop and he had learned Krishna
From some legitimate priests over there, and he had brought it back and he had basically spent a good part of his life afterwards, translating the teachings of the Torah and the Injeel, into the Arabic language.
And he was a worshipper of one God. He was a practitioner of hate.
And so what if I was one of those people? And of course, everybody knew him by that that's the reputation that he had amongst his people. So his cousin Khadija are the alumni now knowing that work always talks about stuff like this. What my husband Mohammed is talking about right now, worker has always spoken about things like this. So when narration says she first went to work on herself, and told him what had happened, and work I was very intrigued that said, By this time, he was a very old man. He was so old that he had gone blind in old age.
And when she told him, she it said that what if I sat up, he jumped up in excitement. And he started saying, This is the truth, this is the truth.
And she and he requested her that bring him to me, I'd like to speak to him. And some narration say no, they went together for the very first time. In either case, they go to work.
And when they reach what are
she Khadija de la Mancha tells the prophet SAW some that you can trust him, tell him what you told me. I trust him, therefore, you can trust him. Tell him what you told me. And the prophets, a lot of him tells what about what had transpired with him. What occur when he hears this. He's very excited. He's very overwhelmed. And worker says has enamels Allah de Cana mozila, Allah Musa, he says this is the same now moves, the word that he uses is now moves, which basically in ancient language and some traces, origins back to the Greek language that it basically means a carrier of a message or the carrier of the truth. Somebody who brings the truth, somebody who brings a message of truth. So he's
referring to jabril Ali salam, a Malik an angel as an moose, which seems very appropriate. Like even the Quran refers to juliani salaam as nessa Levy, or rueful Amin.
So he says, how the nemos This is the same Angel. They used to come to Musa alayhis salam,
the same Angel they used to come to Mousavi salon. And then he says, Yeah, late and he had yada,
It's such a profound truth. He doesn't spend any more time trying to explain to the process that this is true, and this is real. He's so overwhelmed by what he hears. That he says yeah, later, he only he starts thinking of himself. He says, I wish that I have life.
to witness this all come to fruition.
I wish that I get to see that day. I hope to see that day. I want to be there. I want to be around. I want to be able to be active and pick apart in this in the establishment of this truth. He says they didn't he akuna Hagen. If you've read yukako mocha,
yeah, Layton, aku Hagen. If you click upon mocha, he says, I hope I wish I pray that I'm alive, that when you're when your own people will kick you out.
So the prophet SAW Selim, when he hears his work is basically saying, I want to be there, I want to stand by your side, I want to be your biggest hater and your biggest supporter, because this is the truth. This is the truth. I spent my whole life looking for this the truth I've been waiting for.
I want to be there for you. When the process um, here's this. And this is where another instance, in the Seattle that we'll talk about the digital, the migration
to Medina was a very glorious moment.
See, one one specific, objective goal that I have in this series of the Sierra is to humanize a lot of these experiences of the prophecy. So we can connect with them, we can draw inspiration from them.
So the Prophet of Allah loves him, you don't have to see it all is looked at as a very glory. And it was a very glorious moment. It was establishment of the Islamic State, it was giving the Muslims freedom, it was establishment of that first Masjid, so many different things were going on.
But you have to you cannot discount the human factor. Those very tragic for the processes and personally, to leave your home to leave your family to leave everything you know, everything that defines you to where you spend more than 50 years of your life is the only place you've ever called home to leave it.
I mean, when you move from somewhere when you're 2030 years old, it feels like a tragedy. Imagine when you're 50 plus years old, 53 years old, and you live to leave your home. It's tragic.
So the Prophet said I was so shocked by this suggestion. If you don't know como when your people will kick you out. He says he interrupts what it says.
What are you doing to kick me out?
My people, my family.
They love me.
I feel like I'm a part of this city.
lived my whole life here took part in the reconstruction of the gabaa.
But this is this is where I am. And these people, they love me.
They have nothing against me only gigo
they would kick me out.
And he says, Now I'm worth 1000 Yeah, they will. And then whatever tells them lamb Yeah, T I hadn't been with Lima, GTB Illa Odia.
Whenever anyone came with the type of message that you've come with, that person was always opposed. Never did a person ever bring what you are bringing, except that they were opposed, that they were made an enemy, that they became the sworn enemy of their people. I mean, the people turned him into an enemy of theirs. They turned on him, they turned against him. And he said, Why don't you drink Navy omocha on suka nasaan azura. And he says if I'm still around on that day, I will help you with everything I got.
I will help you with everything I got.
The narration actually says through Malema insha Baraka and to fear work I did not live for very long after that, and he passed away.
Before we talk about the passing of waterfall. There are other narrations
which basically make it very clear that this was not what it was only meeting with the prophets a lot he said them. There's one other very established narration that says shortly thereafter, the process of them had a regular practice of going and sitting near to the Kaaba, and just sitting there in front of the Goblin deep thought and deep reflection.
So the process of them did not, you know, stop with that habit of is. So even after the revelation after all of this happened, the process and went to the Kaaba sat down, deep thought deep reflection is sitting there. And it said that, and this is shortly thereafter, this is in the next couple of days.
And it said that waterfall was there, at the Kaaba as well. And he was sitting there in a corner worshiping doing his thing.
And he said, he saw the prophet SAW someone come in, and he got up and went to the prophets alavesa.
And he again spoke words of support for the prophets, Elijah.
And he's told the prophets a lot. He says that I believe in what you're saying.
And I hope to have the opportunity to stand by you and to help you.
And it then said that he kissed the forehead of the prophets a lot. He said,
he kissed the forehead of the prophets Elisa, and said, What Bashar died. It said that he died thereafter, shortly. Shortly thereafter, he passed away, he died. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says there are multiple narrations where the prophets a lot of his own talks about what occurred, that he saw him in a dream later on. Or in some occasions after this incident was related, he was asked about what happened often. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that I saw the priest.
I saw the priest because that's what he was known by. That was his title amongst his people. He was known as the priest. He says that I saw the priest wearing silk garments in paradise.
And the professor said, because he believed in me,
and Abby, he believed in me, he accept like he accepted the message. And so he says that I saw the priest in silk garments, and so clothing in Paradise, and waka died shortly thereafter.
The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In another narration, he actually says that, when the prophets a lot of them says when he returned back from the Cave of feed off, he says that he felt that the revelation that he had received, he said that he felt like it was written onto his heart.
He said, it felt like it was written onto his heart, like you remembered every word, every instance, every sound that was written onto his heart. And so this is that first revelation to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this is the first time the prophets, a lot of them received divine revelation.
And to talk very briefly about divine revelation. And we'll talk more we'll continue on from here in the next session, but basically, we'll continue on from here is, then there was a bit of a brief pause in Revelation. And we'll talk about the exact details of that and what exactly transpired and how it exactly occurred. We'll talk about that. But the last thing I mentioned is divine revelation and ye. Ye, right. So what is exactly divine revelation and how did it exactly occur with the profits a lot sooner? So there's different narrations which talk about how divine revelation would occur with the profits a lot easier than one instance one occasion is this. Would you agree that a
salon comes to the profit
So salmon is true actual physical form, and he communicates the message of from Allah subhanho wa Taala to him. Another form of divine revelation to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is when the Prophet when gibreel Ali Salam would bring the message to the prophets of Salaam, but for the majority of his life aside from those two occasions and the rest of the times, when the when jabril would bring the message to the prophets, a lot of them, he would come in the form of a human being, because it was easier on the process and will when I explain the second because the first instance, the process of just received the word of Allah, Acropolis Mirabella, the HELOC, that in and of itself was so
overwhelming that, you know, seeing jabril in his true actual physical form was overwhelming, but he was still dealing with receiving the word of a law, which was even more overwhelming.
But the second occasion where you see jabrill into physical form, we'll talk about those It was very, it was too much for the processor.
So to make it easier on the profits, a lot of a sudden gibreel would come in the form of a human being. And in fact, the form of the human being that he would most often come to the process that I'm in was a hobby that by the name of Disha.
And he was from the tribe of El kalbi dish, Jacobi rahula,
excuse me, the hair can be really a loved one. He was as a hobby as a person by the name of D here, and in fact, they're here, he would visit, actually, the Sahaba in India would visit the process, and very rarely, very rarely. So that's one of the reasons why Giovanni Salaam would come in this physical form. And on top of that, it said about this era, the allamani that he was a very, extremely handsome man.
He was a very handsome fellow. And so he would come in this form to the process, because he was very pleasant, and he would come to the process, I'm in this form. And that's how he would bring the message. Third form of divine revelation to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would be in the form of a dream, where he would receive a message in his sleep in the dream.
The fourth form of divine revelation to the prophets a lot ism is where Allah subhanaw taala his words would directly be inspired within his heart.
This is referred to in the Quran as moonwalk, a jabbing
Oh, yo, Sila rasulillah, for your heavy Maya Miura, hijab and from behind the curtain from behind the veil from behind the screen a barrier, that the words of Allah subhanaw taala would directly be inspired within the heart of the prophets allottee for them, and you would receive that divine revelation.
And the final form of divine revelation that would come to the prophets all of a sudden, which was actually the the harshest form of it is that the process of said committee Silsila tells us
he said it was like the long continuous ringing of a bell, very loud. And he said it would pierce my head, my mind.
And the profits of Madison talks about how heavy and how difficult it was.
And he said it would weigh down on him.
So much so that the camera that he would be writing occasionally, sometimes when you'd be writing, the camera would be so heavy, it would actually the camera would be forced down, the camera would sit down.
And so one time, he was lying at home, and he had his head on my leg, like his head in my lap. And the divine revelation came to him and she said, I felt like my leg would literally just get crushed. There's too much.
And the processing would be exhausted after it was done.
And it's actually mentioned that any of these forms of divine revelation when the processing would receive them, you would sweat, and you would sweat profusely. And the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu. Note that there would be sweat on the forehead of the processor. And it would be it could be the hottest day. or excuse me, it could be the coldest day, it could be at night and it could be cold in the desert, where there's no question. There's no reason for somebody to be sweating, but he'd be sweating and they said the sweat would be so warm, so hot, the perspiration, that you can literally see it steaming from his forehead.
And so these are the different ways in which the prophets, a lot of them would receive divine revelation. So this is our first instance of divine revelation and the exact of the immediate aftermath of this divine revelation and inshallah, in the coming sessions we'll talk about the first few days in the immediate aftermath of this first in divine revelation upon the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, may Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything we've said and heard to learn about the beautiful life of our messenger sallallahu sallam, and to really use it as a guiding light and a guiding force for us in our lives, which is located on so Hanalei II so Hannah
