This is the day in sha Allah we're commencing the study of Al Bukhari. And this is an abridgment by an en de Lucien scholar by the name of even a V Gemorah. He's known as a bit of a genre. And he starts the book off with a small preface and then he goes into the first Hadith, which is not the first Hadith in Behati, but it is the first selection that he's made. This is in fact the third Hadith in the original body.
He says an Isha turbo mill minutes obviously he's deleting all of the chains. He says on a shutter or minimum meaning of an AHA call it a word woman booty be here Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Amin and what he wrote here Sani Fanon.
I Isha, the Mother of the Believers said, that the precursor
to revelation in the life of Allah's Messenger SallAllahu, it was setting them was in the form of true dreams. So the early form of revelation that the prophets of Allah while he was setting him God, meaning, basically the precursors, the early signs that he's going to become a prophet. And we have a hadith of the prophet in the authentic books of Hadith as well, in which the prophets and salam said that there's nothing left of Naboo or of prophethood, except for a MOBA, Shirat except for glad tidings. So they asked him, What exactly are the motion MOBA Schelotto, Prophet of Allah, the prophets, I said, Let me said earlier, asylee have a true, of course, a solid means the
righteous or the good, but in some of the other reports that actually it says, a royal sadaqa the true dream that a person has meaning a person has a dream in the morning, or in the next month or the week after or a few months later, a few years later, that dream comes true. So that's the prophets and Sydenham considered this almost like prophethood, it is not prophethood in a sense that the person becomes profit, but it is prophetic. Meaning the person is getting intuition from Allah azza wa jal, right, so that intuition doesn't make a profit. But it is prophetic meaning there's a prophecy taking place a person has a dream, and that dream comes true. And so the prophets so let me
said that wrote your Salah has the only thing that's left and there are some reports in which he said that there's nothing left of Prophethood except a portion of 7070 portions, so a 78th portion.
And what is that 70 is the portion that is the dream as well. So this is how the prophethood of the Prophet SAW Selim started every time you would see a dream come and become a reality.
Yes, it shows us. Now of course, all of this would be told to who to each other who would buy the Prophet Islam himself. Because I Isha is nowhere to be found at this point. When all of this is happening. He heard the story, this entire narrative from the Prophet and she's narrating it on the gondola. Yet, Elijah at Mr Fela persona, so he would never see any dream, except that it would become like bright daylight, except it would become like, except that it would become like the brightness and the clarity that occurs at daybreak in La Mesilla for la casa, some Habiba la Hill Hala then seclusion was made, beloved to the Prophet SAW Selim. Now here is a very important key,
and that is that some people, they have just been gifted,
the purity of a heart that leads them to righteousness.
Everyone else around the prophets, I said, Lim is indulging in a host of different types of sins. The people of the pagans of MCDA they're indulging in every evil that you can think of are many, many evils that you can think of. There is promiscuity, there is you know, there is even a red light district something similar to a red light district in in pagan Mecca at that time, right? And there is alcohol, there are people walking around the Kaaba naked me, you know, going around the cabin, naked, there's nudity, there's all these things happening in Mecca. But then in the middle of all of this the prophets Salam, he is granted this guidance by Allah azza wa jal that he wants to stay far,
far away from all of this fifth, and he wants to seclude himself. So sometimes there are people who have just been created to be good. This is something that Allah chooses for some people, but that doesn't mean others cannot practice and seek from Allah azza wa jal that righteousness but this is how the Prophet was. He'll be by illegal holla like seclusion away from all of this fear.
Have an evil was made, beloved to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what can Looby Hari Hara in and he would go and stay alone in the cave of Hira cave of Hira. Now, there's many places around Mecca, that the prophet could go to sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he could go on seclude. But of all places, he chooses the right head off why? There is a reason for that. Number one, he's attempting to seclude now this seclusion can happen in many different places. Number two, he is attempting to worship Allah azza wa jal, he wants to find time alone. He doesn't want to be with family, he doesn't want to have other engagements, social engagements, so this could also be found
everywhere else. But there's one ingredient that cannot be found, except in this place, at least around there. And that was that the prophets of Allah who it was salam would sit in the Hari Hara, and he would look at the GABA
and we know that even looking at the GABA is rewarding. So the Prophet is doing three different Ibadat in one one of them is that he is choosing seclusion and secluding yourself for Allah is another. That's why we do or take off because you seclude yourself for, for the sake of everybody. Then the Rebbe itself, the worship itself is an act of worship and he's getting reward for that. And on top of that, he's also sitting in a location from which he can see the Kaaba, but away from all of the people. And by the way, till the last time I went up to Red Rock, you could actually still see despite all of the buildings, you could still see the guy that from there I hope that that's the
case even now, but at least the last time I went up, I did see the kava from there as well. So these are the these are the three reasons why the prophets Salam, secluded and specifically chose to go to valley Hara, the cave of Heraldo other places, failure to handle methyl fee, then he will do the hiddenness. They're in.
Now, some of the orientalists when they looked at this particular word, but the Hanworth they said that this means that what the Muslims say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was actually on the religion of Ibrahim alayhi, salaam, honey fear monotheism isn't actually true. He was ordered another religion that was known as the religion of the Hanworth.
Now, there's a big problem with this. The problem is the word hadn't. Knuth is not referring to a religion, it's a word. It's a term, which has a meaning like any other word in Arabic, like I can't take a word that has a meaning and then ascribe something completely different to that word headed with it comes from the word hints, which means sin, and defer Allah that form the fact on the other hand, there are a lot of these, not all of them, but a lot of them, they have the opposite meaning of what the root denotes. So if the root mean center handedness means to live off sin.
So when the Prophet is in vida, hello, what is he trying to do that sinful society napkins trying to stay away from it? This is what the prophet is doing. It's not like he has another religion called the head north. And that's why in the brackets, the narrator's of the Hadith, they very, very keenly mentioned Well, who would have Buddha and the handless means to worship Allah. So he's staying there avoiding sin are II attempting to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. I lay Alia the word and I did, and he would stay there for many, many nights, and days on him. This wasn't a blessing in their early until he would finally decide that it's about time that he goes back to his family. So then he would
go back to his family. So for many nights, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be saluting himself over here. Now, is it not possible for the Prophet to stay in the house with her deja vu, and worship over there?
Of course, that's also possible. But right now the prophet is in developmental phases. So Allah guided him to this. Because if you notice later on in his life, when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam gets prophethood is he still secluding himself for the sake of worship, sometimes during takeoff, but for the most part, that's not happening anymore. This currently is the whole regular habit of the Prophet sallallahu.
Because if you look at the narrative of the Hadith, it also says that you will do that for days on end, then he will go back home, get some provision and go back again. But when he's going home, it doesn't say it's Dr. Days.
And it's only for a limited period of time. He goes home to his family, then he goes back to the cave as well to worship in seclusion. Why? Why does it change? When the Prophet is with Khadija he is spending most of the time in seclusion, when the Prophet SAW Selim gets prophethood. And later on in his life, he's worshipping Allah in the middle of the night, in the house, while his wife is lying in front in front of him, he's making sausage. And he he pokes the feet of his wife to tell her to move out of the way. So I can make sense though, right? So he's doing both. This is the reason for this is because right now, the prophet is in developmental phases. So Allah taught him,
you need time alone for your spiritual development. Allah just gave him the intuition, ALLAH given the Delphia, basically, to go and do this. So he gets that time alone. So he can develop himself, and he can prepare himself for that big task. That is oncoming and that is prophethood. So then, Isha continues. And she says, Wait, there's a word to leave that he would gather provision for all of this.
Deja theatres and we're dealing with rehab. And then after all of His provision finishes, he goes back to for the job. And he goes and takes more provision. So he's not stopping over. And he just pays for very long. He's only going there to get his provision. And this is hikma as well. Of course, it's possible if the profit is up there, he can easily get whatever he needs to eat, hunt something down, right, it doesn't take very long to get up to LA to Hara,
like up to a lot of headlights, not extremely long, maybe an hour and a half hour depending on how physically fit you are right. The Prophet was very physically fit for him to go up and down. It wouldn't be much.
So he's doing this because it gives them that freedom. Now he's got everything lined up, he's got his
all of the things done. And that's why even yourself when you're worshiping Allah, and this is a very practical tip from the life of the prophets. So make sure you've chosen to do everything that will all of the distractions have been put aside. If you're, if you're going to be thirsty, then bring some water along with you. If you need to use the bathroom, do it first. And that's why it's considered a clue for you to be coming to prayer and you have to use the bathroom go finish your bathroom, break off first and then come to the Salah. So you're completely ready for that worship. The Prophet would make sure all of those things are done. He has the provision, he doesn't have to
go back down and go back up again and look for food or hunt something down. Rather everything is with him. Now he can seclude himself completely confidently without breaks for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Hector I will help until the truth came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam until the revelation basically came to the prophets, Allah Salam and he was in verde Hill.
This is when the Prophet gets touched by the angel for Jeddah holy minute. So the angel comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon and he says it cannot read or Muhammad
Gibreel already knows that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can't read.
But this is a precursor also to what's coming. This is the beginning of the revelation, Allah Anna because he said I'm not able to read. It's not something that I'm capable of. So the claim that some make that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa Sydenham was actually capable of reading is untrue. In fact, he wasn't capable of reading at this point. And nor was he capable of reading at a later point as well, even though there are some scholars who say later on, after the miraculous nature of the Quran was established the prophets as salam, you know, came to know how to read this as untrue. The prophets of Sydenham didn't know how to read throughout his life he was unlettered but he was very
educated some Allah who it was
a hardening and I believe that in and of itself is one of the miracles of the Prophet. Why? Well, here's an unlettered man.
Someone who's uncapable incapable of reading never learned how to read or write. Well, nothing takes Roman public human Kitab and what are the how to be me? Either the Talmud, no, you didn't use to read or write if you did, then those people who want to cast doubts on the revelation they would have done so. So the Prophet couldn't read.
But despite the fact that he couldn't read, he couldn't write. So Allahu alayhi wa salam, he developed a nation that has been studying his sunnah in the form of reading and writing for centuries on him. And here is the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam written over here and they're being studied as well. So Allah Harding,
and people from all sciences they study the Sunnah of the Prophet. There are complete articles especially
li in Muslim universities in the world, there are articles written on the prophetic medicine there are articles written on the prophetic, you know,
guidelines on psychologies, sociology, every topic that you can think of. So how are all these people learning from this man, and he couldn't read and write that in and of itself is a miracle. So he should continues, and she says, Allah for Allah, Danny,
the prophets of salaam said that
Gibreel Jeopardy grabbed me, he took hold of me for money, and he hugged me very, very tightly hit the bell of a menial job until it became overbearing for me until I could no longer beard anymore. He forcefully pressed me and I couldn't bear it any longer. Now, why is God doing this? Why is he hugging the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam so tightly? The reality is that I have never really seen a clear answer for this. Meaning I haven't seen a satiating answer or a satisfying answer for this. But I think the closest thing that we can see, say, from the context, and what's going to happen is that the prophet is going to be faced with a lot of trials. So it's almost symbolic to
show the prophet that you get you better get ready, it's time for you to get ready and that the difficulties are going to be coming your way. And this bear hug is just a sign of that or it's in preparation for that.
So the Prophet was hugged by Gibreel very, very tightly soom out of salary that he let me go for Allah, Accra. And he said to me, again, read only to me, because he said, I'm capable of reading. I can't read the attorney. He took hold of me again, for Lopunny Thani, a second time he bear hug me again, had the villa minijack until it became overbearing for me I could not do it any longer than he let me go the second time for God. Then he said to me, Accra read the ultimate, a third time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that I can't read. Now Gibreel is acting as a teacher for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And from this, some of the scholars they mentioned that
when you're disciplining people, even within the capacity of teaching than three times is enough, they'll go beyond that. Sometimes, people that are disciplining their children, or their students or whatever, they will take the same topic and bring it up 100 times and, and penalize the child, for example, for the same thing over and over right? Over here. Basically, the prophet is preparing the the brain is preparing the prophets and Celemony did it how many times three times. So just do it three times. And that's enough, is significant enough already.
And beyond that, if he needed to listen, he would have listened, if she needed to listen, she would have listened as well. And even the prophets, Allah said lemon, he would give guidance, as the Hadith has it, that the Prophet would repeat his words, three times had to Rapala animals so that it may be understood what he's saying, after that, if someone wants to understand three times is enough already.
After that, Gibreel a Saddam he said to the prophets, I said, let me put up this mural beacon levy Haluk. Read in the Name of your Lord, the one who has created you. Himachal inside them in Aleppo, the One who created human beings from from a clot
APRA or Bukal, Accra read and your Lord happens to be the most generous as well. Now, these are the very very first verses revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
After this revelation comes the first few verses of Surah of Benin. And after that comes the first few verses of Surah Al Muslim mill. And after that comes the first few verses of Surah Al Madatha. So this is the order sorter Allah then Surah column, the first few verses, and then Surah loserman. And that so let's see what else would differ. There are various narrations on this. But this is one of the best ways to summarize the order in which the sutras are revealed. And the first time I read this specific ordering, was in a book of a scholar several years ago, maybe about a decade ago by the name of Salah holiday. And the reason why I'm mentioning his name right now is because just
yesterday, I got news that Dr. Salah Hill holiday passed away. He was one of the most senior scholars of Quranic sciences. May Allah have mercy on him. And he had written literally literally
dozens if not hundreds, I would say at least seven
He He books on the topic specifically of Quranic sciences, he has some books on other things as well, but on this particular topic in the language of the Quran and he was doing a video Tafseer of the Quran as well. And he also had children who Allah subhanaw taala had put Baraka in them as well and he taught them and he, but Allah subhanaw taala had taken him back to himself. Just yesterday, I asked Allah subhana wa Tada to have his mercy on him, alum me. And this is very important. Because this piece of information I'm bringing to you from something I read from him, then later, I found it in other places as well. He doesn't know that today we're going to be talking about some knowledge
that he had left behind. When a person dies, one of the things that is going to continue to benefit him in his grave is the knowledge that he leaves behind your ILL MoonJune are behaving. So learning and preaching this knowledge is going to continue to give you that basically dividend every single time someone takes that knowledge and they pass it on. It's one of the best investment investments you can make in your life, to learn
and to teach. That's why the prophets are setting themselves clear local mentor LML Khurana Halima, the best of you is the person who learns the Quran and teaches it on as well. And some of the scholars who heard this particular statement
when they heard the statement above the man a pseudonym. He heard the statement and he sacked.
Teaching the Quran by a pillar in a masjid for several decades of his life just because of this one Hadith that he had heard. The best of you is the one who learns and teach the teachers the Quran. Of course, that's a grander scope because any aspect of the religion happens to be part of what the Quran guides to as well. So this is all in sha Allah knowledge of the Quran, Israelite
faith, so but if we look at that order, we look at the order, the first verse happens to be spirit.
And the first few ayat of surah, Allah in that Allah Subhana Allah Allah talks about reading the Quran, reciting.
And in the very few next verses, Allah talks about the pen as well. So he's guiding to reading, and he's also guiding to writing as well. No one told me wanna Yes, stone known, and also I take an oath bar, the pen, and whatever it was written by the pen, before that read in the Name of your Lord, the who is created. So there's reading, and there's writing. These are the first two things that Allah subhanaw taala revealed to the Prophet SAW Selim, and it is for this reason, that when this ummah had been given the pen, and when this ummah had been given that opportunity to deliver the message, they brought the ability to write and read and literacy to the whole world.
There has never been, there has never been
a revolution that entails bringing literacy to the world, like the revolution that this ummah had brought to this world. Reading and writing. And after that Allah subhanaw taala told the prophets I said them, yeah, you have a Muslim man. Oh, you who has been wrapped up in a club, who may Leila Illa Kalina again, Allah's Prophet is now being prepared spiritually even more so stand up in the night for prayer except a little bit of that night. Because when you stand up in the night for prayer, that it will give you the spiritual preparation for you to be handled, able to handle the backlash when you're calling to Allah subhanaw taala because there's going to be backlash. Who are
you going to complain to you when Who are you going to complain to when you get that backlash is going to be Allah subhanaw taala so you have to develop that relationship with Allah, and now you're ready to stand over Hamlet. And that's why Allah says to the prophet in the next set of verses that are revealed to him, he says, Yeah, you Oh, you who has been wrapped in a cloak as well in a garment as well as comfort and now it is your time for you to stand and start warning to people.
So, learn, have the information, spiritually, prepare yourself when you're ready spiritually, now you stand and call to Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is something that is important for anyone who wishes to get into that as well because now with the advent of social media, anyone who here's three things they go up and they open up a YouTube channel and the Twitter account and a Facebook page and a tick tock and they say I'm just giving down. If you really wanted to give that our Wallah he would follow the Sunnah of the Prophet Silliman that
you would follow that sunnah you would seclude yourself, prepare yourself. Give yourself
that time so your tree grows, when that tree grows and you're prepared spiritually, you're prepared intellectually. Now you stand before people and you have connected to Allah. So when those difficulties and trials come you don't flip and flop.
Right? Because we see that happening all the time. I'm giving Dawa when the backlash happens well, Allah He, I didn't really mean that you go and give advice to other brother, brother. If you're going to stand in front of people, you have to speak the truth. And you have to face the consequences, but I'm not ashamed.
It's not my duty.
I don't have to face those consequences, then you shouldn't be doing this. Because now you've put us into a situation which is even worse.
You're now telling people something that doesn't happen to be truth. Because you're afraid of the backlash, and the consequences, and people have already taken you up as someone who should be followed.
And when we try to clean up the mess, we can't clean up the mess because they're saying this person says it.
So you have to prepare yourself my brother's get yourself ready. This is what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did. These are how the verses were revealed to the Prophet SAW Selim read, write, learn spiritually. Prepare yourself get ready, then you stand and you call to Allah subhana wa Tada. Follow JB Hi Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and
then Allah's Messenger returned with this revelation with what the ayat that were revealed to him, and he was trembling, his heart was beating very hard. The prophets are Salam felt this very, very deeply, very, very, it was a very difficult moment in the life of the prophet for Donna Anahata. Because, imagine the scenario, the prophet is in the middle of the night, he's on a mountain, he's in a cave and suddenly, this large creature comes to the prophets. I said, Live, the Prophet have never seen has never seen such a thing. And he comes to the prophets of Salaam and he gives the Prophet alayhi salatu salam Revelation, he grabs him, he bear hugs him very, very tightly. And he
says to him, words He's never heard and then he disappears and leaves
is something completely unexpected. So the Prophet is in shock. He's literally as the rest of the Hadith says he was terrified Sal, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he goes back home, and he goes to his wife, to find comfort.
And this is a good point also for the wives as well, that when your husbands are out, and they go through a difficulty, they go through difficult times outside and they come back and complain to you. It's your time to give them that comfort. It's your time to give them that consultant, you have to embrace Him because a man doesn't open up to everybody. They bottle up just men as beings, they bottle up a lot of feelings within their lives because they want to make sure they look like men everywhere else. But when they come to their wives, they open up.
At least some men do. So the prophets I send them was one of those men he opened up. He let his heart out he poured his heart out to his wife because he was confident that his wife is going to stand by so. So she did exactly that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told Khadija or the Allah Allah Allah. He said, The Maloney's Maloney, wrapped me up, wrapped me up, cover me up, cover me up. So Alicia did exactly that. She covered him up with a cloth. And she then asked
the prophet and the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told her the job of the Allahu Taala Anna. Now Khadija is a woman unlike any other woman, because Khadija the Allahu taala. Anna, she is very disciplined. She has a very strong character, she has a powerful character. There's no doubt that if the prophet being who he is, he's not a prophet yet, but he's known for his demeanor, his aura. He's known for his discipline. He's known for the power and strength he has as a human being. He's known for his decorum. All of these things are basically being shattered in front of her eyes. So it's only natural that she might lose some of it as well. But she composes herself. She holds herself
back from losing it. And she says, she speaks to the Prophet SAW Salem, and she handles the situation in the best way possible, like a woman. And she says, in the prophets of Salam sester said to her now, the Atashi to Allah enough, see, I have become very afraid for myself, I fear for myself, I'm afraid something's gonna go wrong with me. I'm afraid something is going to happen to me. So Khadija says can you name No, no, no, ask for that one. I don't think it's going to happen.
I don't have any fear that something is gonna go wrong in your life. This is power that Khadija is giving to the prophets are settling
Hadith or the low to high embracing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and strengthening him and empowering him. And she knows the character of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam. So she uses that as an evidence. Immediately, she says, Can love Allah Hema zyk Allahu Allah that there is no way by Allah, Allah will never let you down by Allah, Allah remebered disgrace, you just basically debase you Allah will never take your status that you have because she knew he had a status, even though she doesn't know of his prophet hood. But just as a human being within that society in Makkah, everybody knew of Muhammad, he was a Saudi, and he was an amine, he was the most
truthful, and he was the most trustworthy as well. She uses all of the evidences in the book, and she looks at the character of the prophets, etc. And she says, You are the one who keeps good ties with your relatives. In Nikola Tesla, you know, what that mean? Will tell you are the one who supports the needy, and the needy over here doesn't necessarily mean needy in terms of money, because that's to come in the very next part. But rather, this means that anyone who needs anything, because sometimes needs are not always financial needs, someone could need help in something someone could need. Someone is, you know, pulling down someone else within their lives. That's literally
what the word girl means someone who's burdening someone else. So anyone who's causing burden to society, you are the one out there to solve their problem, so that you may fulfill their needs as well. You're one of those people. And on top of that, what do you give to the poor of the prophet is not rich, but whatever he has,
he has a portion of his wealth allocated for the poor people throughout his life now, and later on. Notice that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa salam had been given loads and loads of wealth by Allah subhanho wa taala, the notion that the Prophet was very poor is untrue. There was moments in his life where the prophet lived through poverty, there's no doubt about that. But the prophet had been given wealth as well.
After profited, and because of his marriage to Khadija or the Allah, and I knew at that time as well, but what he would do is he would take that wealth and not live luxury, but rather give it out to people. Because when he's giving the path, it's not always from the money of the Muslims. It's not always from the Treasury. It's not always from beta Nile, many times it is his personal wealth, that he gets it from the fifth of the faith, or he gets it from
other sources. A lot of times it is that part of wealth that is allocated for the Prophet, his family, but the Prophet takes from it, and he gives it out to people as well. So Khadija knows this about the prophets and send them that any money he gets, he's very generous he gives to whomever he wants, and what whoever is needy. So she says, What xe will do, what how could you bathe and you also are generous to every guest that comes to you as well. And you assist the real whenever the real calamities befall whenever real problems occur in this world. And whenever there's situations where there's truthful causes that need to be aided, you are there for the people. The Prophet was
there for people in causes of truth, before and after the Prophet heard as well. One of those causes in which the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam participated was helpful for dune which is a brilliant cause. They happen to be before the Prophet of the prophets of Salaam and he said, If I was to be called to do it today, I will do it today as well.
Now, Khadija are the Allahu taala. And what does she do over here? She reminded the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of all of the positive things that he needed to hear. Sometimes people need to hear positive things. You know, it can even apply here to South Africa saying good words is considered charitable. The prophets is Allah said in the Quran or Gulin NASCI Krishna say to the people good things and allow us to say that say to the people, good things, Allah is saying that say to the people, meaning people in general, Muslims and non Muslims, this is what Allah ignore. The rabbi would say, he would say this is something that is for people in general, how about someone who
happens to be an aefi, meaning he is a follower of the military. Ibrahima Hanifa. Is a follower of the Abrahamic monotheistic Creed II slum. You should say good things. Words matter a lot. words make and break people. The Quran was revealed to the Prophet SAW Selim and happened to be a word, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, he said in the menial Bayani the Sahara, the Prophet himself was given beautiful words as well. He said, speech could sometimes be
Majestic, it could be magical as well, it could lead people to be unconvinced politicians. The reason they have the ability to convince people is because they have the gift of God. Words can make and break people, they can change the lives of people, they can enter a person into Gemina. And they can take a person out of hellfire. And they can take a person into hellfire and remove them from gender as well. Words are very important. So when you have a situation where someone needs to be consoled, make sure you use the right words, it's not the time to give them words that will break their, their themselves even more.
Because ask yourself, if you had a situation like this, where someone came to you running, and they told you a story that I was in a mountain, and I saw XYZ, and I saw this happen, and this and that, and the other,
many of us would immediately start laughing and say, You're going crazy, bro. Right?
Now, I'm not seeing that if someone makes a claim like this of prophethood. For instance, the prophet by the way, at this point, he's not making the claim of Prophet. He's just saying what he saw happened. I'm not saying if someone makes a claim like this of prophethood, we should take that seriously. But still, we have to be considerate of the person and his feelings. Maybe the person is really going crazy could be that. But when someone is going like that, that doesn't mean you have to spell it out for them. You say, Well, we'll try to get to help inshallah. Relax here. Let me give you a glass of water. And let's see what we can do about this. Right. So you've now embraced the
person you've gotten there. You've gotten there, you're now on their positive side. When you're on the positive side, it's at that point, you can make a change within the way they're thinking and within perhaps even convinced them out of what they think. But if you tell them, You're crazy, they will start to say, Well, this guy is an enemy. He's a fool. He's not a friend. He's not there to help. He's not there to assist. He doesn't believe what I have to say. Tanaka to be Hadia to hit the edit video.
Now Khadija obviously she lived with the Prophet SAW surgeon, she saw things of the prophet that were clear, it's this is not a normal human being.
This was something that was clear to her Deja. In fact, the reason why she got married to the prophets as salam was because she's already started to see things that were not completely normal. She actually thought and hoped that he might be actually that prophet as well. So she took the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to work on it, no fail even acid even Abdullah Rosa who was the cousin of Khadija or the Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah, and he was one of those people who we believe in sha Allah will be saved even before the prophet hood of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. What I mean by that is, you see, during the feta to ye during the era in which there was no
revelation between the time of Lisa on Instagram and between Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam. This era is known as the era of utter turmoil, meaning there was no revelation that occurred during this time. So people essentially they followed the religion of ERISA, etc. But then slowly, but surely, some of them follow the Brahim, they said, and so slowly but surely what happened, people started to go away from this religion. And they started to go away from monotheism of Ibrahim Ali Salam as well. But there were some people not long before
the advent of Muhammad sallahu alayhi wa sallam, they decided that we cannot live like this worshipping idols. We cannot live like this people walking around the Kaaba naked, and they went out in search for a religion.
There was a couple of different people. One of them was what up.
Some of them they ended up accepting the religion and Ibrahim Allyssa of monotheism, others and Waratah is that when he decided to accept the religion of Risa de salaam, Miss Rania, and as the Hadith continues, and it says, What can Imran the nurse Salah vilja Helia he was a man who accepted Christianity in the pre Islamic era. What can I add to will kita brawny and he went on to also learn how to read and write Hebrew because this is how he's going to be able to read God's the gospel and the scriptures. They like to boomin in jail and abroad Bill O'Brien Nikiti Masha Allah who lived and he would read and write whatever Allah subhanaw taala and willed for him to read and write off the
gospel in Hebrew as well. What can she can carry on? And it was a very old man
had also been blind as well. This is a little bit about what so what oppa is a noble human being he went out
He traveled he looked for the truth, whatever truth he could find at that time and Khadija, or the Allahu Allah knew of that. And this is one of the reasons why Khadija was kind of aware that there is a prophet to come because she had this cousin who had knowledge of the Bible. Right? There is a prophet to come and she hoped that the Prophet would have been Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So she brought the prophets of Allah who it was salam to Waratah and she said, Yep, now I'm Oh, my cousin is smart mean, Ebony Akik are the words of Khadija again, she's a woman of serious intelligence. Firstly,
what I've got
is not the uncle of the prophets of Allah, who
he's not the son of the brother of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So sorry, he's not the son of the brother of
one aka the prophets. Islam is not the son of the brother of one, meaning his nephew.
But she refers to him as the son of your brother. Why?
When introducing the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam, there's a few choices she has. One aka is a very elderly human being. It is not befitting that hadith IJA says to Wanaka, about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is very young, when you compare him to Allah, he's not that young. But he's young, when you compare it to what up, it's not befitting that she says, listen to your brother, because that would be taking away from the status of
you, so she says it, but if she says that, listen to your son, she's almost debasing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well, because, of course, a son and a father, there's clear that the Father has a greater status in the sun, you're always going to be like that. So she chooses to call him his nephew. So she attributes him to a brother of his inhumanity or II, the father of the Prophet Abdullah. And she says, listen to the son of your brother, this way, she establishes the status of the prophet that this person is not like your son, meaning he's, it's not like you can treat him like that, you have to understand that he's an Ableton. But at the same time, she
recognizes the age of Waratah, as well. And she doesn't call him his brother, do you understand? So she chooses her words very, very wisely. Is ma'am inhibited, like, for calling the hula? Now, what are classes all my nephew now that are on what is it that you're seeing? Here's another pointer as well. When you take someone to someone else, to solve their problem, instead of you giving the entire detail, let them speak for themselves, you just make the introduction, because the person will be able to explain the situation a lot better than you will be able to do that, right. So give them the opportunity to speak for themselves. She already knows what happened to the profitsystem.
And he's already told her maybe they had multiple conversations about it already. Husband and wife, it's possible that they might have had multiple conversations with only this one. But it's quite possible that they had multiple conversations, but by this time, so she clearly and she is a woman of intelligence, she would have, you know, had everything that cheered from the prophet to send them clearly. But now she brings someone she brings the profits as a limb to a senior authority, meaning a person of religion. And she says to him, that you she, she loves him, she gives him the table, makes the introduction and walks away and lets them speak to one another. Okay, but there's another
benefit over here as well. That it is a noble deed for you to make connections between people as well. Sometimes you have
a connection, just by connecting to people you will be sought, able to solve their problem. Someone has a business venture, you connect the dots, you walk away, they make money in Java and screen for you or miss a job. Someone needs to get married and you know this person and that person, you connect the dots. You walk away, that's paid for you. Someone needs some advice on something you connect to people that is caring for you. Sometimes people are very stingy with their connections. Right?
That is the case. Connecting people is a good deed because it's almost like Shiva and Allah says in the Quran, well then he especially if that and has anything fellow Angel Mina, whoever does a positive intercession, then that person will be given it a portion of the reward as well. So when you connect the dots between people, that is a great thing you can do. This is exactly how the
dreaded, she's got her husband he needs some help. She brings him to someone who can help. And he tries to help. And so she asks the prophets Allah Allahu Allah said lemma that Allah What do you see? The hobo rasool Allah is Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, Hubbard Amato.
And here's another point as well, when someone comes to you.
And sometimes this is a point that a lot of people don't understand someone comes from afar. And they may be shy
about discussing their matter. Right out of the blue, someone forms you up, and they call you after five years, and they come over to your place. Yes, entertain them a little bit. And then ask them, Is there something that you wanted to talk about?
Because perhaps the person is going to feel shy to bring up his topic. Or maybe he's waiting for the right opportunity, or he feels awkward. I called you after five years. And I go right into the topic. So ask them, Is there something you needed to talk about? But don't make them feel awkward by asking immediately give them a little bit of time, a little bit of hospitality. But don't overdo it, ask them the question, so that they get an opportunity to speak their mind. Right? If you don't do that, some other people will feel shy, and you would have two hours gone. And then at the end of the meeting, the person said, Oh, by the way, I wanted to talk to you about something. Now, the time has
finished, you are going to be in a difficult scenario, he is going to be in a difficult scenario, you got another meeting to get to. And he has this situation that he wants to discuss. So you have to meet again and spend another two hours.
You understand my point. So when someone comes to you give them a little bit of hospitality, give them care, but make sure you politely also ask them. Is there something you wanted to discuss? I love your presence anyways. But I want to make sure that if there's something that I can help you with, right, this way, you haven't made them feel awkward, and you've also given them an opportunity to speak this is exactly what he does. He says, Tell me what you saw. He gives them an opportunity to speak and the prophets of Allah who it was sitting them speaks his mind.
And he gives them all of the information and everything that happened. And now one of us has had an Musa levena sal Allahu Allah Musa. This is the same secret keeper. Anonymous means the keeper of secrets, okay?
And some of the early scriptures, they used to refer to Gibreel as anonymous, because he keeps the secrets of the heavens, he keeps basically the secret of the Revelation. So this is why because again, he's a person who's learned in Christianity. So you notice this word from their Scriptures. He refers to Jibreel and ceramah as anomalous and literally the word anomalous means the person who keeps the secrets. So this is the secret keeper that would come to Musa and he set up and he says, Yeah, late and if he heard Jeddah, and Oh, how I wish I was a young man, for those of you who were here yesterday, and we talked about the story of Ensam permita. You remember that that priest, he
said exactly that as well. Is are very something very similar. He said that, you know, my time is gone. I wish I was younger when I understood this knowledge, right? So what a guy is saying the same thing he said, I Oh, how I wish I was very young when you would come to the people. And he continues, and he says, Yeah, Nathan you feed her doesn't yell at me, hakuna Hyun is you hurry Dukkha Oh, how I wish I will live to see the day in which people will exile you out of your city. So the Prophet became shocked while the prophet is a person of status with his marriage to Khadija. He's a person of wealth with his great lineage in operation. He's a person of great lineage as well.
He's got everything going for himself, Rebecca, who would dare try to exile the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Do you understand?
So he's shocked. He said,
are they really going to try to absolve me of all people, either the person who has great lineage, the person who has noble status people trust me, they call me the truthful one. On top of that, I have a wealthy human being because of my marriage to Khadija as well who are drowning. Alicia is a powerful woman as well. So it's the duality over here two powers coming together. Why would someone attempt to and she has a noble lineage as well, who will try to do such a thing. And what more could he go on? And
so yes, they're going to do exactly that. Let me actually Raju run up to the mystery magic Debbie in odd. There's not a single person who brings something like what you're bringing over here, except that people go against this person, except the people
People fight against this human being except that people deal with him in a very hostile way, except that he's met with hostility. What indirectly yoke and Soroka Nasaan was Zara. If I get to see that day in which you come out with this truth to the people, I will aid you. Some scholars, they said that obviously
one of our died, some of them they talked about whether he died on Islam or not. But we say in sha Allah, He died on Islam. Why is that? Because he's attesting to the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam has been given Revelation, the same Namu Secret Keeper that would come to Musa Musa, this is the same one that's coming to you as well. So what is that, that is him clearly testifying to the fact that you've become a prophet because Gibreel when he comes to anybody, he's coming with what a revelation. He comes for different reasons. One of those is bringing revelation down. And another one is what Allah subhana wa Tada commands him to destroy people or a villager, etc. Right?
So, obviously, this is a clear testimony from what are called that the prophets of Allah who it was salam happens to be a prophet.
And that means he would be among the people who believed in the prophets of Allah who it was sort of them so we see a lot of the Allahu Allah, may Allah be pleased with what up and he's obviously saying that I'm going to aid you as well as you did in your work on synchronous. And this is all he's capable of. At that point, the prophet hasn't been commanded to give his message out to people. So the unlike other people, who immediately rejected the prophethood of the Prophet he's accepting that you have been given message by Allah subhanaw taala through the same numbers through the same secret keeper angel that came to Musa Allah and Sarah through Millennium Shabbat oppa. To and to
fear war veteran ye and then what I didn't remain for very long until the revelation discontinued.
So this is the end of the Hadith. Now the next Hadith or the next portion that you see over there, it's actually another Hadith it's not the same one is counted in the books of in the original body as an extra Hadith. So Buhari he quotes this is a Scarlett who she haven't who's who she has Zoetry April she has zoete is the first person who collected a book of Hadith when we Jamia in Hadith even if she have in your Allah Who Rama that the first person who ended up collecting a book of Hadith was even if you have a story at the
rule, or at the commission of disease. So if you have a zody he says that what Afghani Abu selama even when I'm not in the Javelin Abdullah and Sadiq Khan, the Java room, I've deleted the loader and he said any Hadith in which he was talking about the pause in Revelation, for quality Hadith he been, um, she, as I was walking,
as I was walking, I suddenly heard a sound in the sky. Now in other tradition, he talks about the in more detail that he heard a sound on Allahu alayhi wa salam. So he looked right, he looked left, he looked in front, he looked in the back, so he looked around him first, then he looked up in the heavens, okay.
So first, this is, you'll notice this as we're reading a hadith that some people will summarize the Hadith. We do this all the time. Even myself as I'm giving a hotbar electrode input every Hadith at length, just like that does however, they wouldn't always put everybody's at length. So Swan Sahabi he quotes the whole length, Hadith and other person quotes another aspect of it sometimes the hadith is quoted and sort of summarized by one of the narrator's as well all of this happens, right? And that's why it's very important to note that a hadith are reported largely in meaning they're not reported verbatim unless we have recurring reports that show us the exact same word again and again,
So over here are in another tradition, basically what happens is that the Prophet looks right, left front back every direction, then he looks up, and he sees, as he says, for fat to body for either mela Kalevi journey, Bihar in Jalisco and
then that scene angel that came to me invited her on in the cave of Hara I saw him sitting on a chair in the horizon between the heaven and the earth between the sky and the earth.
For the Prophet said, I became terrified. Obviously, it's a terrifying sight something that again, the prophets has suddenly
Seeing these things for the first time for Jack to fulfill to them Maloney Zan Maloney cover me up, cover me up and at that moment Allah subhanaw taala revealed yeah a you held with the fear comfort and did Oh you who has been wrapped in the coke stand up and give guidance to people stand up and warm people stand up and
and begin begin your doubt. Okay from here all the way to verse number five. Now, it's very important that I go back to what I said earlier on the order of revelation is first and foremost, the first few verses of Surah Trollope then come Sugata Palom then comes Muslim men, then comes this last one and that's why if you notice at the end of the Hadith, what does it say? For him? Yeah, and what you what the tab that at that moment, the what he started to become very, very frequent. Okay. It became very strong and frequent from this point onwards because now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been commanded to go ahead and start giving his message out to people and warning
people. So from this point onwards, the wind is not coming. With a pause, it's coming very, very regularly. And that odor that I'm talking about this is through collecting all of the Hadith on this topic, because there are many Hadith some of them actually say that the Quran is smaller, they can lay the Holika is not the first revelation. They say, Well, that is in fact the first revelation. Right? In fact, this was the opinion of Javed himself as well. But when you collect all of the revelations, or when you collect all of the Hadith, you'll find this to be in sha Allah good view that surah Allah then column then
Musa min and then we'll desert and I asked Allah subhanaw taala to have his mercy on her Isha, who narrated all of this to us and on January we'll have dilla and on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, or some Allahu Allah say he didn't remember them early. He was so happy he many
