You're listening to Calum Institute's podcast series. See the life of the Prophet by sheer Abdul Nasir Junga visit us on the web at Calum Institute dot o RG or find us on [email protected] slash Calum Institute. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I was saying, he remarks in this hadith of Sahih Muslim that I know of a stone in Mecca that would give Salaam to me that would greet me before Allah and before I was made a profit, we need a RT fu n and I still know that stone till today. So these were some of the precursors to the actual first revelation that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam received that prepared him for this divine revelation.

00:00:51--> 00:01:29

Now we talked about the actual revelation in the entire experience. We talked about this at length, about what that exactly was for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and how that experience was and what exactly transpired and we talked about the immediate aftermath, where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam returns back home, he's completely shaken up. I also mentioned that when he left the Cave of hate all the prophets a lot, he said was very, of course, overwhelmed. He was very shocked. He was shaken up. But on top of everything else, the prophets a lot, he says, He says the most severe dislike, I had the most severe dislike for soothsayers and fortune tellers and the poets

00:01:29--> 00:02:06

that would use poetry to misguide and to deceive people, to manipulate people's emotions. And I was just so concerned about not being afflicted by anything of that nature that he says My heart was very heavy. First of all, I was very overwhelmed, but why that happened? And secondly, I was just overwhelmed by the thought that will I be able to live up to this cause or not, God forbid, will I abuse this message in this new found gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala or not, and I never want to be from those types of people who might utilize this for their own personal gains in their own personal means.

00:02:07--> 00:02:20

So the promises are so heavy with this overwhelmed by this legibility, Ronnie Salama, appeared to the profits along with him, as he was coming down to cave as he was coming down the mountain, from from the mountain of nude, the Cave of head off.

00:02:21--> 00:02:35

And then this is the first time that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saw gibreel Ali Salam is true, actual physical form, that will create an image. And I described that last time. And he told the prophecy, some anti Rasulullah, who energy believe

00:02:37--> 00:02:40

you are the Messenger of God, and I ended up in the angel of God.

00:02:41--> 00:03:16

Meaning this, what's happened here is nothing. That is something you should be concerned or worried about. But everything that has transpired here is by the willand decree of Allah subhanaw taala. This is divinely ordained, you have nothing to worry about. And he says, in a strange way, he said it was very overwhelming to see God in that form. But in a strange way, it provided a certain amount of just emotional fortitude, some strength, it lent me some strength, and stabilized my heart in the process and returned back and of course, we talked about the conversation with Khadija and the beautiful words, Khadija, or the Allahu Allah, may Allah be pleased with her what she spoke. And

00:03:16--> 00:03:48

then of course, she went to what, and then she took the profits allowed him to walk up and nofal, her cousin who was a Christian, you know, monk, and a priest and a student of the previous scriptures. And he was somebody he was from the kunafa. He was from those people who worship one God at that time of severe misguidance, in that time of darkness and ignorance. And of course, when he heard what the prophets a lot, he's about to say he was blown away. He was completely blown away. Wonder he needs it says that he started to go

00:03:49--> 00:03:55

that goods goods, that this is sacred, this is sacred, this is holy, this is holy.

00:03:56--> 00:04:01

And then he affirmed everything that had happened with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we talked about that conversation.

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

It said that, in the narrations, which mentioned that these are the Allahu anhu went to waterfall first. And then later on, she took the prophets a lot, he said them, so and then I told you that there was a third visit with what were the prophets, a lot of them went to the gabaa went to be to lots of pray, and what occurred was there and he saw the prophets, a lot of them and he approached the prophets a lot of the time and he said that, you know, I will stand by your side for as long as I can. And I would support you with my full strength as much as I can. And then he kissed the forehead of the prophets a lot. He said, um, and it said that he died a few days shortly afterwards.

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

But in the narration that says that first, Khadija went to what are called to at least break the ice and to let him know a little bit about what had transpired that he said he recited some, he basically recited some shot. You know, he recited some poetry. And sure the Shira and he said to his cousin Khadija, for in Yokohama Konya Khadija, to follow me, howdy, Kiana masala.

00:05:01--> 00:05:31

Would you believe Blue Yeti Amiga Luma Houma Mina, Lucky white Manisha who saw the Roman Zulu. He said that, oh, Khadija if what you say is actually the truth and realize and understand that what you have told me about Muhammad, about Ahmed as he refers to the Prophet tells him because I we had covered this way back in the early discussions about the birth of the prophets a lot. He said that his mother used to prefer to call him admin. And so therefore, people that were very close to the process that are almost like the house name,

00:05:32--> 00:06:14

the house loving nickname of the prophets, a lot of them was admin. So he says, For more saluda know that Ahmed is in fact the messenger. And he says, What do you breathe? t huami gan Huma Huma Mina la he wagon? Yes. rassada Rahman Zulu. He says that jabril comes to him the angel Gabriel comes to him and along with him comes from Mika. He is with the both of them with Mohammed and Julian. And they come from and from Allah comes the divine revelation that opens the chest of Muhammad, your fools will be HeMan philosophy habito Burton wish abila rT Allah hurry Ramadan. Lalu. He says that whoever will follow Him will succeed along with Muhammad success by repenting and turning back to Allah and

00:06:14--> 00:07:02

the one who will oppose Muhammad and the one that will deceive the people and the one that will lead people astray away from Mohammed, that person will be a failure. That person is truly misfortunate. For the body men whom for the Forgotten Fiji Navajo okra be one was in jail Me too. Alalu he says funny funny man whom Phil cotton Fiji Navy, but okra BIA was in Jamie to Honolulu. He says there's two groups one group that stands by the side of Muhammad and the other group, they will be inside of the pits of the fire of hell and they will be tortured there in either Maduro will be Wally fee how to taba mapa Murphy hemmati, in Thelma to Shalu. He says that when they are called to the valleys of

00:07:02--> 00:07:48

the fire of jahannam, and over and over again, they will be struck and they will be hit and they will be punished and then they will be burned in the fire of home. For some Hannah Montana. We are hubby Emily, woman who have been a yummy Marcia a year for Hulu. He says that how absolutely perfect is the one that the winds blow by his command. And the one that everything that happens to our time happens solely by his command, woman out of shoe who focus somehow magically her goofy Hulk the healer. And he says that his throne, his aatish is above the heavens. And his decisions amongst his creation can never be changed. So he actually recited these poems to a DJ rhodiola Anna, telling her

00:07:48--> 00:08:07

that Not to worry, and that this is in fact the reality and the truth of the matter. And so we now reached the point where the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam has had these conversations with Khadija he's had these conversations with water. He's gone back home and he's in deep thought, and he's reconciling everything and he's figuring everything out.

00:08:08--> 00:08:11

Now, here, there is

00:08:13--> 00:08:20

a difference of narration, if you will, the reason why the difference of narration occurs, some mentioned specifically and some do not mention this.

00:08:21--> 00:08:25

The next major stage of the life of the prophets a lot of the time is called full throttle.

00:08:27--> 00:08:33

Full throttle, full throttle, washing means the brake and Revelation, the pause in Revelation.

00:08:34--> 00:09:07

Some scholars of this year awesome books of this era, some accounts of the prophetic biography, go from this first revelation in the immediate aftermath to the positive revelation. Some of them say no, they actually mentioned a few other things that transpired shortly thereafter. So after the prophets a lot ism has all these conversations, and he has these conversations with water. And he goes back home to act to just now just deal with this to come to terms with what has happened. Some of the narrations mentioned that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received a second revelation.

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

immediately thereafter, he received the second revelation. The second revelation was the first few verses, the first few Ayat of Allah

00:09:21--> 00:09:39

surah number 68 surah number 68. That that was the beginning of the next revelation. where Allah subhanaw taala told the prophets Allah what he revealed to the messengers a lot he said it was noon. The first the first few ions, which basically accounts for

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

some some scholars mentioned only the first two I had some mentioned that are first maybe four or five verses noon. This is the first of the roof Elmo kata art that were revealed to the Prophet syllogism, the disjointed letters, the letters that are a miraculous part of the Quran that are very

00:10:01--> 00:10:08

That are that basically, you know, they, they, they alert the listener to be listened to.

00:10:10--> 00:10:26

So these letters, they alert the listener, they catch the attention of the listener, because it's something that is very out of the ordinary, it's very unorthodox. I mean, if somebody is talking and all of a sudden, then they just stop on the letter and they say, Ah,

00:10:28--> 00:10:34

you stop and you listen. And so it catches the attention of the listener. So no.

00:10:37--> 00:11:14

And a cat caught the attention of the prophets, a lot of them, and it caught the attention of all those listening to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala said, well, Allah, He swore by the pen. Well, Magnus Tarun and that which they will continue to write either the melodica, or the records of history, what the people will write, what will cut what is about to come to pass. But basically, it's it's almost like a figure of speech and metaphor, stating that Everything's about to change. Everything is about to change. If you want to hear a more in depth analysis of this, this isn't a series of lectures, I don't want to, you know, I don't want to go to

00:11:14--> 00:11:34

off too deep off into the the fear of the IRS. But I've actually done the Tafseer of sort of the column, so number 16, that you can find on the beginner podcast. So Allah subhanaw taala says, well, follow me on my Instagram. And then Allah subhanaw taala says something profound to the process of math and to be near material because imagine

00:11:35--> 00:11:46

my intervening material, because imagine that you are not contrary to what others might think contrary to what others are about to say, you are not by any means.

00:11:48--> 00:11:54

You You are not possessed, you are not insane, you are not you, you haven't lost your mind,

00:11:56--> 00:12:30

by means of the blessing of your Lord. What this means is two things either that you haven't lost your mind. And that is because of the blessing of your Lord, meaning by the blessing of a law, law has protected you Allah has blessed you. And that's why you will not lose your mind you haven't lost your mind, or be near Matthew Robic than the Atma of the Lord is actually referring to the Quran and the divine revelation in the new Buddha, and that is Allah Prophethood, that this Prophethood and this new Buddha, this hasn't caused you to lose your mind. Don't worry, this hasn't caused you to lose your mind, but ends up being a material because imagine what

00:12:32--> 00:12:42

it specifically reserved for you above and before anyone else, a huge reward and never ending reward and eternal everlasting reward is reserved for you if you can see this through.

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

We're in Nicola,

00:12:47--> 00:13:14

Nicola Allah for looking at him. And then I was told I gave the profits a lot. He said, I'm the first, the one the most effective and powerful tools of delivering and sharing and realizing this message and this mission, this Prophetic Mission in this divine message. And that was what in the color Allah who looked at him that most definitely you are above, a very great, noble, amazing character.

00:13:16--> 00:13:47

And even the language of the is such that imagine, imagine the heights of nobility imagine the heights of good character, where the peak of good character would be, that's where the character of the process begins. From our human frame of reference, from our from our social perspective, imagine what is the most amazing character you can imagine. And imagine the peak of the most amazing character you've ever seen, or you could imagine, and then realize that the character of the process of would start from there. And a lot emphasize that don't ever let anything compromise your character.

00:13:48--> 00:14:21

There will be difficult times there will be very trying moments, there will be situations where people will really test your patience, and people will behave very, very inappropriately with you, but don't you dare ever compromise your character and your your o'clock your behavior. Because that's, that's, that's, that's who you are. And that's your resource. That's your tool. That's what you use. That's your asset. That's your that's your medium of communication. Communicating This message is through your character. What Allah Allah for Luke and Avi.

00:14:23--> 00:14:49

So this was the first revelation, or excuse me, the second revelation upon the prophets of Sodom, according to some of the accounts of the Sierra. Some of the scholars of the seat actually then state that there was a third revelation. There was a third revelation shortly thereafter, to provide the prophets a lot of some some type of an outlet, some type of recourse, some way to cope with what was going on with the prophets, a lot of them that there was a third revelation.

00:14:50--> 00:14:52

And that was suitor number 73.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

Yeah, you have Muslim men. Yeah, un Muslim men. Come in.

00:15:00--> 00:15:19

Laila Illa Allah the older one sitting there wrapped up in a blanket What that means is what are you doing sitting there wrapped up in a blanket? What are you doing just sitting there? wrapped up and just think like, what are you waiting for? Come in Layla illa kalila. Stand up and pray throughout the night except for a little while. Misra who have tonight Oh, in postman, oh, Polina

00:15:20--> 00:15:40

or postman or maybe a little bit less than that maybe a third of the night owes into an A or pray more than that. What are you doing for an eternity law and continue to recite this beautiful, wonderful gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Properly within that prayer, in Nationale de la Conan Sakina, we will continue to send down this very heavy word upon you.

00:15:41--> 00:16:01

In a nutshell, utterly here I shed the water on what Oppo malkina and this conversing with a lot at night. This exercise the spiritual exercise of the night, this will give you firm feed and will give you the ability to say what you need to say will allow you to speak properly. In the lack of in a hurry, Samantha Willa,

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

and you got a very long swim ahead of you during the day.

00:16:06--> 00:16:42

And again, if we take these narrations, the purpose of revealing that to the profits, a lot of them was to emphasize to him that have that good o'clock and have that good character, but realize is that you'll only be as strong as solid as your prayer during the night is that this is where you'll come back to recharge. This is where you'll charge your batteries. This is what will keep you going. You're going to need this. And if you actually in detail, read the tone of these ayat, and you understand the message of desire. It's actually very interesting. It's very unexpected. Because a lifetime the process and to stand up and praying long hours throughout the night, which is very

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

exhausting.

00:16:45--> 00:17:09

It's me telling him to rest or take it easy or recovery, telling them to pray long hours in the night. He's telling him that I'm going to send out a very heavy word upon you. He's telling him you got a long mission and a job ahead of you. Which can be very overwhelming, which can be very frightening. But Allah subhanaw taala This is Allah subhanaw taala his version of real talk with the prophets a lot he sent him. He's letting him know, listen, you got a lot on your plate.

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

You got a lot more on your plate than you recognize your weight on your shoulders is a lot huge, a lot bigger than what you've understood.

00:17:19--> 00:17:37

And the reason why it's important for you to understand and realize that, that take this opportunity to connect with Allah take this opportunity to converse with Allah take this opportunity to recharge your spiritual batteries very seriously. avail this opportunity make the most of this, don't sleep on the prayer during the night.

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

Literally.

00:17:40--> 00:17:52

Right, don't sleep on the prayer during the night. Because otherwise, there's no other place where you'll get the charge, you'll get the the energy, you'll get the boost that you need in order to do your job.

00:17:55--> 00:18:13

Now, these are some of the narrations that are mentioned that there's surah number 68 was revealed. Some also mentioned that the first part of pseudo number 73 was revealed. And then unanimously, we have the fact that the profit of a loss of lobbies and then went through he experienced what is called full throttle or

00:18:14--> 00:18:19

what is the throttle, full throttle where he as I explained before, means a pause in Revelation.

00:18:21--> 00:18:22

a pause in Revelation.

00:18:23--> 00:18:33

The duration of the positive revelation is not explicitly mentioned in the books of Hadith not directly explicitly mentioned from the prophets a lot, nor from the people around him.

00:18:34--> 00:19:00

Different scholars have some scholars I should rather say have assessed certain, you know, frames of time, they have basically tried to conclude how long the positive revelation was based off of maybe some of the IR or some of the revelation or some of the other things. Some scholars have stated times or durations as large as as long as three years.

00:19:01--> 00:19:22

Some have said it was as short as maybe a few nights a few days. Someone said it was a few weeks, probably in between, well, Allahu taala Allah so Allah subhanaw taala knows best, there's real, even the scholars who have mentioned these these durations of time, they themselves explicitly clearly state, there's no solid confirmed way to be able to conclude what the timeframe was exactly.

00:19:24--> 00:19:45

A lot of times the very basic popular books of Sierra that are written, they sometimes have a time duration stated there in so maybe you're familiar with some references of time. But those are just written very, basically very simply. So that's why it won't give you this side detail this fact that there's no real way to conclude how long that time duration was, but that is the fact of the matter.

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

And so some scholars say that a lot actually knows best but it seems to be the opinion of a good majority of the scholars who have delved and discussed the life and deceit of the prophets a lot. He said I'm even cathedra being amongst them that

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

The duration was probably somewhat closer to being about a few weeks worth of time. And again, Allah knows best. Now revelation paused. Why would it pause what exactly happened? Well, obviously, again, the scholars explained, it was to give the prophets a lot of them a certain amount of time to acclimate to this experience, to let it soak in just a little bit,

00:20:22--> 00:20:27

to let him kind of gain some level of comfort with what had just happened, what just transpired.

00:20:29--> 00:20:42

And secondly, once he became comfortable with what happened to also let him start to develop a certain amount of longing, if you will, a certain amount of anticipation.

00:20:44--> 00:20:49

You know, they say you want to keep him want to keep him a little thirsty, you want to keep them coming back for more.

00:20:51--> 00:21:04

Whereas, of course, we have the utmost respect when we speak about the Messenger of Allah loves him. But see, one thing that the scholars explained is that receiving divine revelation is something we can't even imagine what that's like. We have no frame of reference.

00:21:06--> 00:21:09

I mean, how do I how do we understand that we can't

00:21:10--> 00:21:13

I mean, getting squeezed by an angel, what's that? Like?

00:21:14--> 00:21:16

There's no way we could realize that

00:21:17--> 00:21:24

having the words of Allah subhanaw taala directly pierce into your heart from above the seven heavens? What is that, like?

00:21:26--> 00:21:33

You will know. So we have no idea how overwhelming and even traumatic of an experience this was.

00:21:35--> 00:21:38

how overwhelming of an experience, it really must have been.

00:21:40--> 00:21:48

That it must have taken him a few days to just recover. He probably had to sleep it off a little bit, have to just relax, just needed to think.

00:21:49--> 00:21:57

And after the initial feeling subsided, or that overwhelming, he got over some of the initial shock of that experience.

00:21:58--> 00:22:13

Then the Prophet told him started too long for that because at the end of the day, it's the word of Allah subhanaw taala. He fully believed he had no doubt that he had been a lot spoken to him, he'd received a kind of a lightning was made a messenger of a lot. And so once a few more extra days went by,

00:22:14--> 00:22:24

the anxiety settled in. What if Allah is upset with me? What if Allah is angry with me? What if I've displeased Allah? What if I haven't lived up to expectations?

00:22:26--> 00:22:29

When will I receive divine revelation? Will I receive divine revelation again,

00:22:30--> 00:22:34

things started becoming more and more anxious, more and more nervous,

00:22:35--> 00:22:36

more and more worried.

00:22:39--> 00:22:46

And in this state of confusion and nerves and anxiety, severe anxiety

00:22:47--> 00:22:51

again, because we can't even imagine what that must have been like.

00:22:53--> 00:23:06

It said in the narrations, and this is mentioned in very popular even basic common books of Sierra, that the prophets a lot he sort of went on when was left his home with the intention to climb up the mountain.

00:23:08--> 00:23:15

And the narration states that he would, if Allah was upset with him, If Allah was angry with him, he would throw himself on the Mount.

00:23:17--> 00:23:24

Now here, I took pretty much the last entire week to just comprehend and understand this.

00:23:26--> 00:23:31

To understand what that exactly means, because that could be misunderstood or misinterpreted by someone

00:23:32--> 00:23:35

that doesn't want to kill himself, of course, not reliable.

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

Of course not.

00:23:40--> 00:24:02

And so I consulted with some senior scholars I even spoke to a Muslim psychologist is a professor of psychology, who Mashallah has also studied Islam and put on in Sierra and so now I even spoke to him. And first and foremost, there is always a possibility that this is almost like a figure of speech. It's an expression.

00:24:03--> 00:24:10

That saying to climb up to the mountains and throw yourself from the mountain is like an expression of saying, like going screaming from the rooftop

00:24:12--> 00:24:15

screaming from the rooftops? Why, why, why are you upset with me online?

00:24:16--> 00:24:29

That's of course one way that it can be understood. And secondly, even if it's taken literally, there's something we have to understand expressions of emotion, emotional expressions, are very subjective to time in society and culture.

00:24:30--> 00:24:38

Certain expressions of emotion that are acceptable today were deemed unacceptable a couple of 100 years ago.

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

And typically speaking, if the psychologist was actually sharing this with me, that if you look at ancient societies, like the Arab Society of a millennia and a half ago, if you look at these types of societies, they were actually very comfortable with very powerful emotional expressions. They're very comfortable with very, extremely powerful emotional

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

expressions are very comfortable with this.

00:25:03--> 00:25:16

Like, if somebody had a tragedy or somebody had something tragic happened in their home, one of the ways that they would express this is that they would literally come into a public area, like in Macau, they would come into the room, and he would rip his shirt off, and he would yell, and he would scream, and he would pull his hair.

00:25:17--> 00:25:30

I mentioned if somebody did that right now, right? I mean, we, we, we'd assess that as some type of a psychological emotional disorder. But it's our equivalent of somebody going and pulling the fire alarm clock, you know, alerting everyone that there's an emergency.

00:25:32--> 00:26:13

But so people were a lot more comfortable with these types of powerful expressions of emotion. That's one thing. Secondly, we also have to understand that there are certain things that some studies of science or the social sciences or psychology even, that there are some things within the Islamic mindset, the Islamic frame of mind, the Islamic worldview, that just, they won't be we they will never be reconciled with modern frames of scientific reference. Because they're coming at it from a completely a religious, a spiritual perspective. And there's something they just won't comprehend this, this professor of psychology, he actually explained to me, he told me that when he

00:26:13--> 00:26:26

started his PhD, when he started his graduate studies in psychology, as a graduate student, basically like an assistant to a professor, he's a teaching assistant at a major university, and he's a PhD candidate in psychology.

00:26:27--> 00:27:02

So he said that they had these big basic psychological evaluations, these basic tests that they make people take that are basic psychological evaluations, and they were going to be doing a whole study on these and they were going to, you know, get a room full of like, maybe like a group of people, that would be a case test, right? It would be a case study, a test, study, and they would give these psychological evaluations to people, and then he would interview them, and then he would analyze them, etc, etc. So he said before I actually started analyzing and studying the actual psychological test and exam, the questionnaire, he says, I decided to take it for myself, just to kind of get a

00:27:02--> 00:27:08

feel for it. Our Professor recommended take it yourself. So he said, one of the first questions was, do you think about death?

00:27:09--> 00:27:26

And this is a practicing Muslim. So as a practicing Muslim, what's your answer? Do you think about death? Everybody? Absolutely. Actually romantically had him in law that the prophets Allah Islam says frequently remember death? So he says, The question was, do you remember death? I said, Yep.

00:27:27--> 00:27:34

Of course I do. So on the next one, the following questions was, do you feel like you're not in control of your life?

00:27:36--> 00:27:38

That's like, a man one on one right?

00:27:40--> 00:28:06

about right. Do you feel like you're not in control, like somebody else or something else is in control of your life? Yes, absolutely. Shall we La la la la, right. So he said, Absolutely. And I checked it. Yes. She said, when the evaluation was done, and my professor actually looked at, he goes, you know, you you basically come, you know, you would based on this questionnaire, you would be diagnosed as being depressed. You have you have you have a form of depression.

00:28:08--> 00:28:23

And he's like, No, I'm not. Right. And my and he says, The professor said, Yeah, you're not. And this is he said, it's a tenured professor, head of the Department of Psychology at a major university. And he's like, No, you're not. And he's like, Yeah, no, I'm not.

00:28:24--> 00:28:51

But this test says that you're depressed. Why? He said, primarily because of these two questions. And he says, I explained to him, do you think about death was a part of our spiritual exercise, we do think about death? Do you feel like you're not in control of your life, it's a part of our spiritual belief system. It's a part of our creed, our belief system, that we believe that God is in control of everything, Allah is in control of everything we're not. And so there are certain things that aren't easily reconciled like this.

00:28:52--> 00:29:06

So that's another thing you we also have to kind of understand when it said something like this about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam going to go on top of the mountain and fling himself from the mountain. I mean, you have to understand the spiritual condition that he's he's willing to do anything to pleases Lord.

00:29:09--> 00:29:11

He's willing to do anything to pleases Lord.

00:29:12--> 00:29:17

And he gave me other examples, he said, sometimes, just sometimes a very basic, you know,

00:29:18--> 00:29:30

a simplistic approach to psychology and things like that is very, he said, it's almost like out of context, looking at something out of context. He explained to me that if you were to say that somebody ran into a burning building,

00:29:31--> 00:29:34

somebody had first voluntarily ran into a burning building.

00:29:35--> 00:29:37

That person is suicidal.

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

But if you complete the sentence and you understand you, you look at you take a step back and look at the big picture. He's a firefighter, and there's a baby inside the building and went inside to save the baby. Now, all of a sudden, he's not suicidal. In fact, he is selfless. He's a hero. He's admirable. He's amazing. Somebody we look up to. So similarly, you have to understand the full the full scope, you have

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

To understand the big picture here, so the profit of a loss allottee center would go up to this mountain

00:30:05--> 00:30:15

of debt anxiety that concern of a less displeasure, and gbd Elisa Lam would appear to the profits along the center, and he would say under Rasulullah Hopkin

00:30:16--> 00:30:32

in Nicola Rasulullah. How can you most definitely are the messenger of a lion, this is the truth. You truly are the Messenger of Allah have no doubt about that. And he said, it would again, calm the nerves of the prophets a lot, so many would come back down.

00:30:34--> 00:30:40

And so this number of days alone knows exactly how many they were, they passed,

00:30:41--> 00:30:47

until finally the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, he was walking through the Marketplace in Mecca.

00:30:49--> 00:30:51

And he heard a sound from above him.

00:30:53--> 00:30:55

And he looked up and he says, I saw you believe

00:30:57--> 00:30:58

this is the second time

00:30:59--> 00:31:15

the second of the two times that the prophets Allah has some side you believe Ali Salaam, this true actual physical form. And he said it was even more overwhelming than the first time. He said, in fact, you believe that sound to someone sitting on a chair like sitting on a throne, like a chair.

00:31:17--> 00:31:27

And he said he was huge, just like before, and he was overwhelming. He was just sitting there. And he called my attention. I looked up at him since I was completely shaken up to my core.

00:31:30--> 00:31:35

And the profitsystem says, I was so shaken up that I needed to kind of regain my composure. So he says, I felt like I couldn't walk.

00:31:36--> 00:31:40

So he says I sat down exactly where I was. I just sat down for a little while

00:31:42--> 00:31:50

and took a breath, regained some of my strength and my composure, and it picked myself up and I went home. I was shaking.

00:31:52--> 00:31:54

I said dusty Rooney, the three Rooney

00:31:55--> 00:31:57

wrapped me up in a shawl in a blanket.

00:31:58--> 00:32:01

His beloved wife, Heidi de la de la Honda wrapped him up in a blanket.

00:32:03--> 00:32:05

In the last panel, which Allah sent him divine revelation.

00:32:06--> 00:32:07

Yeah, you Hollywood.

00:32:09--> 00:32:11

What are you doing sitting there wrapped up in a blanket?

00:32:12--> 00:32:19

That's not what you were meant for. That's not what you were meant to do. What are you doing sitting there wrapped up in a blanket, you're meant for greatness.

00:32:20--> 00:32:21

Stand up

00:32:23--> 00:32:25

and do what for under God warm.

00:32:27--> 00:32:31

It's a little bit of a linguistic nuance. Like I said, I don't want to turn this into a tissue lecture. But

00:32:33--> 00:32:41

students of the Arabic language can tell you that for under this verb, and warm, it requires an object.

00:32:43--> 00:32:49

yada, it requires an object or requires a victim an object.

00:32:50--> 00:32:53

But that object role is not provided.

00:32:54--> 00:33:08

It's Madoff. It is intentionally omitted. When it is intentionally omitted in this manner in this form, the purpose of it is is to open the spectrum, customize the message, open it up, go and warn,

00:33:09--> 00:33:18

mean warn everyone, meaning warn anyone who will listen who will heed Who will pay attention, go and warn.

00:33:20--> 00:33:21

For under

00:33:22--> 00:33:25

Let there be no end to this message into this mission.

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

You go as far as you have to you go you work as hard as you got to you sacrifice whatever it takes. But you learn.

00:33:34--> 00:33:56

Of course, that message of warning as well in that in the Arabic language warnings in a perfect translation into English, what it means to warn someone of some imminent danger out of love and concern for that person. So if like your brother, somebody you deeply care about is walking down a path and there's a big ditch coming up and you say well, watch out, watch out, watch. I don't want to ditch.

00:33:57--> 00:34:00

You do that because you care about them and you don't want them to get hurt. That's

00:34:01--> 00:34:05

good Warren, care about people. warn people

00:34:06--> 00:34:09

alert people of the danger that awaits them.

00:34:11--> 00:34:14

For under Baraka, Kabir

00:34:15--> 00:34:22

proclaimed the greatness only of your Lord in your master, with the back of your head and your clothes, purify them

00:34:23--> 00:34:24

with the avocado,

00:34:26--> 00:34:41

purify yourself and this is both as a literal and figurative meaning literally purify yourself. clean yourself, but also figuratively, that makes sure that you appear and you present yourself in the best of fashions in the best of manner.

00:34:44--> 00:34:53

That this message does not give you license to be filthy on the outside. But you have to make your outside live up to the standard of this message internally with the avvocato

00:34:55--> 00:34:56

what rouges a fast job

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

and leave all types of bad you

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

Disgusting, repelled repulsive things, leave them, leave them completely.

00:35:06--> 00:35:17

And this was the first revelation to the prophets, a lot of them after the pause, after the break in Revelation, and this is what mobilized the messenger, salallahu alaihe salam. And from this point on,

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

the processing was a man on a mission.

00:35:22--> 00:35:24

There's nothing that could stop.

00:35:25--> 00:35:55

And inshallah in the next session, we'll talk about how the process of set out on a mission and what were some of the very first who are some of the first people to whom the process and preach this message, and also Who were some of the first people responded to this message. The last thing I'd like to comment on here before I close up, the session for this week, is that there are some accounts of this era, which mentioned that the first revelation after the positive revelation, the first revelation after the positive revelation was what will happen, when lately is

00:35:56--> 00:36:16

talking about the brightness of morning and the night when it completely takes over. And that's that that's analogous to receiving revelation after not receiving revelation when they leave. So, Mao adakah, rabuka, Rama, Allah, your Lord has not abandoned you, nor is he upset with you. Your Lord has not abandoned you, nor is he upset.

00:36:18--> 00:36:59

So based off of that, they say that this was what happened. This was the first revelation. However, that is not the that that is not what the authentic narration tells us. Even cathedra Mullah actually discusses all the revelations and compiles them together, that from the Sahih Muslim. In fact, in Bukhari and Muslim we find that the pseudo Guadalajara this surah was revealed when the Prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam shortly thereafter, not too long thereafter, still in the faith in the beginning, maybe duration of the prophethood there was me there was another positive a few nights that actually mentioned two or three nights, and that was actually the process and became

00:36:59--> 00:37:06

very ill and became very sick for about two three days. That sometime after the Revelation the Prophet would started,

00:37:07--> 00:37:13

his mission began he became very sick and very ill for about two to three nights to the point where he was in bed.

00:37:14--> 00:37:52

And during those two three nights, he didn't receive revelation. He was very sick, very ill he was bedridden, and he didn't receive revelation. And at that point in time, some of the machico maka generation says that a Metallica a one the idol worshipping women in Makkah, she actually came to the process Um, so I am in this condition. And then she mocked, made fun of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm one narration says that she says, looks like that's your buddy. Meaning referring to Allah sarcastically, she said that your buddy looks like he is upset with you. He's abandoned you. And that some people in that new data processing wasn't feeling well. They started to say, Oh, it looks

00:37:52--> 00:37:54

like his Lord has abandoned him.

00:37:55--> 00:38:09

And one other nation says that she actually will either be law that she actually referred by she mocked the process on him by saying that your shape on your devil has abandoned you. He doesn't talk your devil your shape on doesn't talk to you anymore.

00:38:10--> 00:38:19

And she mocked the process in this way. It was very hurtful to say something like that. And to hear that. And so in response to that Allah subhanaw taala said, What go Ha.

00:38:20--> 00:38:29

well lately either Santa Monica dakara bukoba macula don't pay attention to these fools. Your Lord has not abandoned you, nor is he upset in the least bit.

00:38:30--> 00:38:53

So that's just a clarification of a mix up of certain narrations that certain Basic Books of Sierra basically make. And like I said, from here on out the process on was the was a man on a mission. And we'll talk exactly about how we carried on with his mission initially, and what were some of the first interactions and some of the first responses that he received to his preaching and the teaching of his message. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us all

00:38:55--> 00:39:08

the full understanding of the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and May Allah make his life and his precedent and his example a guiding light for us in this life and also in the life of the Hereafter, which is located almost akin to luck.
