well my level also level for pedophiles if I was an argument about
inshallah we will continue
where we left off which was the
the time in which the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala and the time in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received revelation. We know for sure, of course we said that that was the month
of Ramadan. And that was
we don't need the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Because we have of course of course there are many a hadith, the verified also but we have verses in the Quran in which Allah subhanaw taala mentions that Shannon Ramadan Allah the onesie Luffy hipper and who then the Natsuo the United mean and who there were four shall Ramadan, the month of Ramadan is the month in which Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the Quran as guidance for mankind Hudler, NASA United Mina, who devil for God, it is clarification and it is also
it is also a distinguishing criterion to determine that which is good and that which is bad. And so when, when Allah subhanaw taala. Before we mentioned, there were many things that happen during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in which revelation used to come, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned, he said that
he truthful dreams true for dreams are one
one for the
46 146 of a revelation 146 of revelation that you might say, why is it 146 of revelation that was? That's that seems like it's
strange number. Right? One half 1/3 so truthful dreams
Revelation. So where does that come from?
It comes from the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the total amount of time that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received these
receive the dreams. Because remember, we said at the beginning,
at the beginning, the Prophet salallahu Salam used to see truthful dreams. That means he would see a dream. And then it would happen. He would see a dream and then what happened. And so when, when these things,
go in the car and get it because it's going to
get the battery.
Truthful it's just giving me indication that it's going to turn off.
So dreams are 146 and he said that this was before Allah Subhana Allah revealed
a crabby spirit because
he would see something and it would happen. Now where did 46 come from? 46 comes from the now amount of time that the prophets have allotted some received revelation in totality
in totality, how many years was how many years were the times in which the Prophet Solomon received revelation from Allah
2323 years in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam received revelation from Allah subhana wa Tada. So 13 years in Mecca and 10
yours in Medina.
And if you multiply all the whole time, that the prophets of Allah is and receive a relation, how many years is that in totality?
How many years
total total is 23. And if we say that the total is 23.
Total is 23. What is 46 km from
46 comes from doubling that. Why do we need to double that? The reason is because the prophets of Allah, Allah goes on for half a year. For six months, he used to see dreams.
And of course, dreams are prophets and messengers are always truthful. They're always truthful, because the shayateen cannot
influence them in their dreams. She or they can influence the prophets and messengers of Allah, in their dream, they can't influence them at all. And that's why even when the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is asleep,
even though he is asleep, he's technically awake.
Why that's why the Prophet Solomon, he says, My eyes sleep, but I don't actually sleep. Why? Because in his sleep, you know, when you're sleeping, you lose consciousness. And whatever you see in your dreams, is just gibberish. Some more a lot of it's just nonsense. Just your thoughts, they're just floating all over. But with the prophets and messengers of ALLAH SubhanA,
they're always in control of their, their thoughts and their mind. Because the shaytaan cannot influence, influence in the event in their minds. The Shaitan can influence us. But the prophet Salam also has a shade on who every person is given, isn't assigned, assigned a shaper, who tries to influence that person. And the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, every person
and he the Companions, they said, even your messenger of Allah, they said, he said, even me, but my shaitan
accepted Islam as meaning he did, he does not and he doesn't order me to do anything except that which is good.
He said, he doesn't order me to do anything, except that which is good. So six months, right? So in totality, the total amount of the total amount of Revelation is 23 years. If you multiply that by 23 years, and half of that half of the first year, was in dreams. And so the six months is 146. Six months of to 23, six months of 23 years, right? Is 146 of Revelation. So the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said he used to receive revelation from Allah subhanaw taala. Meaning he used to see dreams from a loss of dreams that were from a lots of Hammad Allah. And this was something that was in preparation for him receiving revelation from Allah Subhana Allah. And he used
to as I as we mentioned, at the beginning, or mentioned last week, he used to seclude himself from the people. So is it better for us to seclude ourselves from the people, maybe avoid contact with people altogether so that we don't have you know, when you don't contact with people, you're less likely less likely to commit sins maybe. Right? So you said to yourself, should you do that? No. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, ultimately, no lender, your Hollywood NAS,
a believer who joins the people intermingles with the people. Well, yes, they're either home and he is patient he perseveres,
with their harm. In other words, they try even with all the harm that comes to him, he is patient.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that person out of them will agilon Milla de la Johar little while yes there. Allah Allah Allah
said that person has more is greater in reward will receive greater reward reward the one who avoids and stays away from the people altogether and is not persevere the the harm that comes from other people. So of course if you deal with the people you hang out with
People you have to be patient with them. Right? You have to be patient with them. Some people, some people they say you know, I don't want to get married right?
It's better for me not to get married if they get married then you know you have more fitna sometimes more problems with your, with your wife, right? You take care of them, you have children now you're artistic.
Right? But the thing is, what we don't realize is sometimes when you start to use you, when you think about it, and you start to use your own,
your own intellect to determine what's right and what's wrong, what's good and what's bad. You end up doing that which is worse and falling into greater sin.
You understand falling into greater sin. And that's why staying away from people, avoiding them, avoiding them, you might say what I might not have any, I might not have any, you know, any problems with people. Why? Because I don't go into contact with people I don't go in, I don't deal with people so that you know what, let me just go into the mountains, and raise the sheep have enough food for me drink from the mill, and just live alone by myself. I don't have to worry about anyone. I don't have to worry about harming other people and not have to worry about people harming me neither. Right? And so that way, I don't can't make any sense with anyone else. Right? It's just
between me and Allah subhanaw taala and the desert or the or the jungle or wherever you want to live, to avoid the people. But is that better? Not necessarily. Why? Because humans naturally are inclined to, to have company. You know, that's why you want to do you want to be with people you want. You need the social interaction. You can't just be by yourself. And that's why when Allah subhanaw taala ordered Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam to go to Mecca. When Prophet Ibrahim went to Mecca, he says, he turned around and he's making dua to Allah subhanaw taala. And he's asking Allah subhanaw taala to protect them from committing here. And then he says, Rob Benelli up masala so that
they can we establish prayer for the Allah editor meanness, that we lay him fragile as a determiner, Nancy, that we like him, make the hearts of people yearn towards them, make the hearts of the people yearn towards them. Men yearn towards the, towards my project in the chill, my my, my progeny that I have left here in Makkah. And then of course, he says, what is omega Thammarat laleham Yashpal. And provide them from fruits, so that they may be thankful. So first of all, you need to, you know, you you have, you need to, you need to strengthen your, your
religious, and your spiritual needs. And that's between you and Allah. But you also have social needs. And that's why people enjoy social media. People like it when people like what they post, people are like this, a lot of people like the attention, right? And people, it's just the social needs that you have social media, we call it social media. In the old days, you're you have to go meet people, right, you have to socialize, you have to meet people, you have to chat and you sit down with them. And that makes you makes you happy when you're dealing with them. But at the same time, when you are dealing with them, you're also going to have to deal with the harm that comes
You're also going to have to deal with the harm that comes with it. And so in Islam, it's good to deal with the people. But you do for us, we have, of course there's nothing. It's it's not it's not something that is recommended that you stay away from the people. And that's that's why our deen is the natural dean.
And the Christians for example, those who want to be pious and righteous and they want to be men of God, what do they do?
They go to the monasteries or they go to and they become monks, they avoid they don't deal with the people, they don't get married. They don't do any of that. But that's that itself contradicts the fitrah of humanity and you can't replace it. You can't replace the fitrah that Allah Subhana Allah put within us that type deal any fitrah to Allah Allah the Quran as
the fitrah that Allah Subhana Allah the natural disposition
In a lot puts upon us, it's natural. And so that's why they ended up doing that which is worse. So what do they do? What ended up what's what's happening in all of these,
you know, with, with, with the Catholics and so forth, that's so widespread
abuse, abuse of who they stay, they say that, okay, you know what, we don't want to, we don't want to get married, we want to go, we want, we want to come closer to Allah. And so we don't get married, but they don't want to get married. But then they do that, which is worse. They do that which is worse, worse, in some things are unimaginable, so much. So it's not just a single place. You know, they have these Christian seminaries that teach or raise people or that teach people in these these schools to become monks Arsal. Right. And they send the people there at a year, a very, very young age. And that's why the Catholic Church, and many of these churches have almost become
bankrupt. In fact, they're out and they are bankrupt. Why? Because they got sued so many times by so many people who grew up thinking that they were doing something good.
But thinking that this is something that's praiseworthy, by staying away, abstinence and staying away from marriage, staying away from women, and of course, they end up doing that which is worse, and they end up abusing young boys. Right. And so that's why this is this is the the opposite of, of what our deen teaches us. But you might say, well, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did go, and seclude himself. But this was not a lifestyle here. It was the time he would take time off and what did he do? He interacted with the people. Otherwise, how would people know that he was the most he was the most honest, the most trustworthy, he was the most helpful of all, even on
his way to the to the cave, he would bring something he would bring food and provide and give to the people right and so it has interaction It's just that
there's a time in which you just want to seclude yourself so there's a balance in Islam in the lira because like
indeed you yourself have a right upon yourself in a Alec Alec happen and your family have a right upon you. When nearly enough see garlic happen and you yourself. You also have a right upon yourself as equally they happen. How God so give each entity that says they're deserving of it's right. It's right. And so a believer and Muslim, somebody might say, You know what, then especially some of the may be extreme Sufis, they might go, and they might stay at a certain place. They don't want to get married and so forth. They actually just following the ways of the, what the Christians used to do for us. Yeah, there's a time to seclude yourself, a time between you and Allah subhana wa Tada. And
that's at nighttime. Yeah, a young Muslim woman, Leila Illa. Paulina, this fall who went Osman who Paulina. I would say the Allah He were aterial poor Anatole Tila in as a nuclear power and the pillar in Nana shear the lady here I shall do work on our work one more pillar, in in Melaka in a hurry Sabha. But we, at the end of all of that Allah subhanaw taala tells the prophets of understand up at nighttime, in prayer, and prayer at nighttime, seclude yourself, but you also have a long day, also to interact and to go out and get in and communicate with the people and deliver the message to the people. And so that's there's a time for seclusion. There's a time for seclusion, evicted, and
being by yourself. And then there's a time in which you go out and socialize with the people in a good way to be to remind others and also to interact with others, as he as we have with our fitrah natural disposition that Allah has has instilled in us to fulfill those or to to make sure that we also fulfill the needs or social needs also. And so that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also but he, he also he knew that the Companions also they have their you know, there are social gatherings also. In fact, one time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Here common jewels for tarot cards. Jaco will julu
US federal courts stay away from those gatherings on the side of the roads. Stay away from the gatherings on the side of the roads. And one of those gatherings
one of those gatherings, you know, it's like, if you go to any Muslim country, here you where do people sit down in the morning? The cafe, right? The sitting down drinking coffee, right? They sit down and drink coffee. And that's like, that's how people socialize. Right? That's how people socialize. They sit down, the more before they go to work. Some people sit down longer than they're supposed to. And they spend more time there than normal right than usual. But what do they do? They socialize and they sit down and these are like on the side of the road, they're drinking coffee, and you know, having maybe a light breakfast before they go to work. But you know, there are a lot of
the brothers that get together in the morning. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Jaco willing to lose a thorough part. He said, Be careful of saying those gatherings on the side of the road, and the roads, like Be careful, stay away from that. And so the Companions it's like, wait, wait, that's part of our life. Like oh, Messenger of Allah, ma Milan, abdomen Majah listen to her death, Sophia. He said, O Messenger of Allah, we have to have our social gatherings we have, that's where that's where we, that's when we have our, when we speak to each other. That's where we socialized that had death, Sophia, that's when we socialize, we have to have those, like, normally,
right? So the prophets, I'm just saying that, don't do this, stay away from those places. And the Companions are like, Oh, Messenger of Allah, and, you know, we can do that. That's part of our life. You know, it's like, it's part of, it's how we socialize. So the Companions Hey, this Subhanallah shows how serious this matter is. And it's when the guys right? It's not, you know, it's not it's not normal. I mean, it's not normal to just like to avoid and stay away from everything. So they said So the Prophet someone in when the Companions when they said this, he said, he said, if you have to
give the road it's right. Like if you're gonna stay on the road, the side of the road like that, when socializing that way, then give the road it's right. And so the Companions they said, O Messenger of Allah will not have quick Toriel what is the route the writer the route where what are we? What are we supposed to do? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
I want the salah
right when you're near there you know like when somebody passes by you know you make sure you give the rights of giving salaam sutra right so when you're giving salam so each other than of course that's rewarding. And that's and that also connects each other and strengthens the hearts and strengthens the bond. And then he said, Well, hello Boshoff. Lower your gaze, though, you know, a woman walked by, and don't go around looking at things just sitting there. Now, you have to lower your gaze, right, lower your gaze, walk up further, and make sure you don't do any harm. Okay? They don't do any harm. And then he said, Well, I'm Robin maruf. We're now here and in Mancha, you have
to also enjoying good, and you have to forbid evil. If you're gonna be outside on the road, if you see something bad, make sure you stop it. Don't just let it happen in front of you. Because when things bad things happen in front of you, and you don't do anything about it, then you become desensitized. And those types of things continue to happen. So the rules of socialization were set in this hadith of the Prophet sallallahu ourselves, and we can apply it to modern day. Social media. Right modern day social media. So I can say to people, you can tell people stay away from social media.
Stay away from social media. And so what are the youngsters are going to say? What are the youngsters going to say? What are they going to say? The Imam stands up and says stay away from social media. Stay away from facade book and Facebook.
Stay away from Instagram and Tiktok stay away from you to stay away from social media altogether.
What are they going to say? Stay away from that's all we
always stay away.
From all of these Twitter, whatever it is all social media stay away from him. What are people gonna say? Just like what the companion said.
The whole message of Allah we have to like, yes. And it's it's not practical to leave social media altogether. It's a part of our life. So during the time of the Prophet sallallahu, x and the companions on the side of the road, they said the same thing, oh, Messenger of Allah, we have to have our gatherings, our social gatherings. And so what we say with social media is yes, go ahead. But what do you use it for?
What should you be using it for? How should you use it? If you have to be on social media? Use it to enjoin relations. Right Radha Salaam is and joining relations. So you need to call your grandmother call your grandma and join relations, call people to connect and join relations. You know, when you give salons, that means you're communicating with other people use it as a tool of communication to enjoin relations. Okay? Secondly, what should you be doing? You should lower your gaze of the boss. Like, don't go around the dark corner of the internet.
Don't open those doors. Like if you can't stay away from that, then stay away from social media. Right? But don't go to those websites that are not appropriate.
That's not appropriate, lower your gaze don't go looking at for looking at things. Okay. Let me look for pictures of this and that. Or let me go around looking for pictures of sisters. I am looking to get married after all right?
So you might be going around, right? And so no, you lower your gaze, that means don't go looking around at things that are haram. Well, other than bizarre, we're careful Allah don't use that to harm other people. Also, we hear often about cyber bullying. We hear often about people in on social media being very, very mean. Why because they think they have the protection from behind the keyboard. So the speech you would not there are things that you would not say to someone in front of their face. Why because if you were to say those things, you'd probably get beat up.
Because you're only typing, you say mean things.
Or you backbite other people, or sometimes you slander other people, you spread rumors, all of that which is haram, in terms of harming other people, whether you're doing it through social media or otherwise, through words, and communication, that is something that you should not do when you're on social media. Socialize, these are the rules of socialization. If you want to be on you want to be on social media, and you want to socialize, this is what you do, you stay away from harming other people. And you also notice, you'll also notice, you know, like, when somebody's behind the keyboard, they're very mean.
And also when they're behind the car, they feel like they're protected. Right, they feel like they're protected. So when somebody does something like even going a little bit slower bit
where they drive they try to cut off and burn them. And even worse than that sometimes you have road rage is the the point where people get so angry, so mad, you know, the day that they they harm the other person. Why? Because sometimes the person who's driving for some reason when they're behind the wheel, you know, there are some people, amazing people mashallah amazing people, but when they're behind the wheel law,
sometimes you sit down, you sit down, I've sat down with people mashallah nice, very, very nice people, very nice people, very well mannered in their speech and everything, but they get behind that wheel, like
a different person, cut everybody off, and like what is supposed to stop, you got their first and break after rules that up there. Right. And so there's like a different person. And so the same way some people behind the keyboard, they're like a different person. So if you're going to be on social media don't harm other people. You have the rules, the being nice kind of being well mannered, good in speech, saying a good word. Those still apply. Those still apply. So if you're going to socialize and you can stand the rest of the side of the road, don't harm other people don't harm them physically. Don't harm harm them verbally. Right? Don't harm other people verbally don't harm other
people physically. And so that's why the Prophet sallallahu MCCA
For other, and if you're going to go out there, what is it going to be used for? What do you want to use social media for?
A Lambo Bill Maher roof, we're now here and in monka, enjoying that which is good and forbidding that which is evil. So you want to post something, go ahead. But make sure you post only that which is beneficial.
If it is not beneficial, don't post it. It is not beneficial. Don't post it. And if you see somebody posting something, and you're able to help them, remind them, then you do so in joining good and forbidding evil. Because there are some people who post everything. Everything online.
You say what? It before they even say Bismillah? They say Instagram?
Right before they say Bismillah? They say tick tock. Let me get this on takes hold up, don't eat yet.
Let me get this on Instagram, they take the picture, right? Where the food looks nice. They bring it from the restaurant, are you eating? Are you just cooking? You made some nice food? And you're about to touch it stops having a way, way, way late. Let me take a picture of it. Why didn't they want to take a picture of it?
They want to post it on social media first, though, what benefit is that?
You're showing off to other people? Yes. But maybe there are some there are a lot of people out there who are jealous of you. You know, you go on vacation. And they, you go on vacation, you post everything. And then another family who may not have that type of money. They feel jealous. And sometimes it causes problems in the family. And the wife comes and says honey, you know, look at so and so they're all vacation even though she might not say that. When do we get to go on vacation?
Like why did why is it all of a sudden she wants to go on vacation? Like nothing. Because so in short songs, I went on vacation, posting pictures of Hawaii, posting pictures, those beaches, and then all of a sudden it's like, now there's more pressure on the family. Right? There's more social pressure. So that's not going to benefit. Or if you have a child even you're posting all of these cute pictures. But there are people who don't think that they're cute. They don't think your children are cute. You know why? Because they've been wanting children for the last 1520 years. And when they see it, they're not happy. They're sad. Because they never had, they never all these
years, they never had the children and the children. And you never know the shaytaan comes and starts to play with them. And then you have the evil eye.
And so that's why, if you have something good post it Yeah, it's okay. But don't post it except to those who love you. Those who are close to you send those pictures to your mother. It's okay. Mothers are gonna be jealous. She wants to see her grandchildren. She's really happy. He wants to see her grandchildren's first, first words first step. And that's what makes them happy. It's okay. But don't post it for the world to see. For everyone to see. Because maybe there are some who are jealous of you. There are some who are jealous of you. So where Why are speaking with the CRR? How do you get here? Well, because when you're
you don't want to seclude yourself. You don't want to go out there and do you know interact with the people without any guidelines. No go out there and benefit people. When you remind people you're going to face and face problems. But at the same time you have to that's you have to you have to try to benefit society intermingle with them. The only time where you want to stay away from all of it is if the influence if there's so much corruption, there's so much evil, that instead of you being able to influence others, you're going to be influenced. And your deen is going to be at stake. Some people you hang around with them. They're very toxic. You hang around with them. And all the all you
hear is all you hear is just backbiting and harm, you know people talking about other people, and they talk about other people in front of you. They're going to talk about you in front of other people.
You and others in front of other people also. So there's gonna it's gonna cause a lot of problems. Yes, if you want it's better to to go out there and interact and intermingle with the people and that's what the prophets have said. And what we know whether you call it a NAS, a believer who intermingles with the people. Well, yes, we're either at our home and he
He is patient perseveres through their harm the harm that might come to him, along with algebra, he will have a greater reward. Why?
When somebody says something to you, you it's a difficult it's you know, now you have to determine whether what you should do. And if you do it according to the guidelines set by Islam, then you will be rewarded by Allah, they will already be patient, but at same time also enjoined, good, forbid evil, interact with the people, even if they try to harm even if they tried to cut relations, you join relations, the reward of enjoying relations is very great, but it's not always easy. Right? It's not always easy. Well, yes, there are a lot more agilon He will have a greater reward our agilon He will have a greater reward than Minella de la you Holly to whom Allah is Berala
he how he will have greater reward than one who does not intermingle with the people. Nor does he
nor does he
is not noisy patient with the harm and the hardship that may come with it. So that's why the same way with everything else, you know, you might get you get married hamdulillah and there's gonna be some problems maybe in your marriage in terms of when you're interacting with your spouse. Yeah, it's not going to be perfect. But in sha Allah, the, the reward will be greater than the harm in sha Allah, the reward that comes as a result of it, of having children that they will make to offer you that at the end in sha Allah that you you teach them and you make sure that they become good Muslims and the end reward will be greater for you. Then do not have children at all are not getting married
at all. Why something because you're following the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah. I'm in the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah and it's this fall in the deen of Allah, which is the dean of the fitrah. So we'll move on inshallah to New Zealand. Why?
Revelation. So the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he secludes himself in the cave of him, and he worships ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And Gibreel
Gibreel comes and he is Amina Elahi, the one who is responsible for all Revelation, the one who
is the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa taala. The Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala for all the messengers that ALLAH SubhanA that.
So He is a messenger from he is the one who is responsible for revelation. Do you believe it comes to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam when some of the scholars have mentioned it was on a Friday on it's on a Monday. And the fact that it's on a Monday or is we find we find that in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that tells us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he received the revelation.
We said for sure if we said of course during the month of Ramadan, one of the narrations of Sahih Muslim states that it was the 21st
the 21st in the month of Ramadan, of course, there's a difference of opinion amongst the scholars because this the night is the night the night that revelation first came, is one of the last 10 nights during the month of Ramadan in one of the odd nights, and so some of the scholars have mentioned it as the 21st. Many of course have mentioned the 27th There's a mention another day, but we know that it is the last 10 nights during the last 10 nights during one of the odd nights. And that's later to Qatar Of course. And of course the the healer. The difference of opinion amongst the scholars is something that is very very well known. And of course it was been shattered on a lot of
value. Lima Lima Lima Isla de salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, and it was when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was 40 years of age by name Americana at hand that will be very Hara when he was in the cave of Hira. Gibreel came and he said in Accra, he said April and so
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says for Paul to in this hadith this particular Hadith, of course, is in Sahih Bukhari and it mentions to us
also in Sahih, Muslim matches as the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, first of all, there was a squeeze from Gibreel is
squeezed them so hard to the point where he said had that bellava Min nearly
until I could I almost lost my breath.
I almost lost my breath and then he released
and imagine how scared you would be. If you were by yourself in a cave
and someone came and squeezed you so hard that you couldn't breathe.
Like somebody squeezed you so hard that you couldn't breathe, you've lost your breath and you think you're gonna die. Why? Because you have no strength because Gibreel is coming up really squeezing him so hard that he said I am I thought that I was going to lose my breath meaning I thought that I was going to die. And so he said and then he released when he said Cara, recite a cara cara Corrado? Yeah, Karim is to recite Quran.
Quran out here in the Arabic language right to, to recite, to recite whether you're reciting whether you're reading it by looking at something, or you're reciting well mentioned some other narrations that mentioned, the DVD came with a book that I'm plush silk and told them to read. Right, but the stronger opinion as he just says to him, Accra recite now the messenger of allah sallallahu. Latham said, Matt and Abby Paya, man, Aria, look, I'm not someone who knows how to read.
I don't read a man of your body. The prophets, Allah was very intelligent. He was extremely wise. He was very, very smart. But he wasn't able to read. And this was an in of itself a miracle. A miracle from Allah subhana wa Tada. Someone who doesn't know her does not know how to read. He is very intelligent, very wise. And
he, of course,
the reason why he's unable to read, it is a miracle in and of itself. It is the proof. It is proof in evidence that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is a prophet and messenger from God. Why? Because if he's able to read, then people and he used to love reading. And he used to always read books, right? All these books, anything that he can get his hands on. He could he'll read, then what would what are people going to say? When he starts speaking about Prophet Musa when he starts peak speaking our Prophet nor when he starts speaking about Prophet Adam, when he starts speaking about the Day of Judgment? Oh, no, no, he got that from the questions.
Right? He got that from the Christians. He got that from the Jews. He got that from folklore, the Persians and so forth. He read, he read their books. You know, the orientalist. They can't say he read their books.
He didn't read any other books.
It can only be from Allah, someone who has so much knowledge. Someone who has so much knowledge cannot just have this knowledge. Without reading.
Without reading, you can have so much, how many? How much time? Is someone willing to sit with you?
And tell you everything that they know how many how many people are going to do that with you. People have their own lives. But if you read books, you can read the information and their ideas and their stories from even though they're not there. They've left the knowledge for you. And so you you can you can spend your days and nights reading. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't know how to read. You can't say he got this information from them. You can't got he can't say he got this information from reading and learning. No, it can only come from Allah Subhan Allah.
So the fact that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam did not even know how to read even though
most most of the people in Arabia did not, not many did not know how to read but the people in Mecca knew how to read.
The people of Makkah were very literate, more so than other towns. They were more literate than others. Why? Anybody know why?
Because of their lifestyle,
because of their lifestyle.
Like if you look if you go around the world, right now, you travel the world. Where is where is which part of of any country is is literacy the highest
in the cities, right? People know how to read. People are educated. People go to universities, but you go outside the cities into the farms.
Do you go to the desert?
You go to the Bedouins, you go to the farmland even in America, there are some people who still don't know how to read, believe it or not, even in the US, the United States of America, but you won't find most of them in the cities, you'll find most of them in the rural areas. Right? Why? Because if you're living in the city, and you're living in a town that you have to do business, you have to know how to read. Because you interact with so many other people and you have to do business. Otherwise, people will cheat you.
They will teach you buy stuff, you have to know the price, you have to know the items, you have to write them down, people will cheat you. You can't do business if you don't know how to read it, right. I mean, you can but it's hard.
It's much more difficult. So what kind of lifestyle that people are meant to have.
The they were merchants and traders, and business people.
Unlike the people of Medina,
the Arabs of Medina, they were farmers. They were Date Farmers. Because the ground there, the the land that they were living in was very fertile. And so most of them would date farmers. And so how do we know from the see that all the profits on Allah, honey?
What's this? How does what how do we know this? We know this after the Battle of Bud
after the battle, but did anybody know what happened?
The Muslims captured 70 prisoners
70 of the prisoners have, and we will talk about it later. 70 of the prisoners of the Mexicans, the Meccan prisoner, so they had so many prisoners, those and of course, that which was agreed upon was that if they could ransom themselves, they will be freed. So some of the people who had wealthy family members, like the prisoners who had wealthy family members, their families would send them money would bring in ransom them. Okay, look, we have our brother here. So they would give them money. So that they would be able to be they wouldn't be released and brought back to Mecca. But there were some families who couldn't afford it.
Who couldn't afford it? Like what? Okay, if you pay for yourself a view if you have someone ransom you. They're not at. We know when they're captured as, as prisoners. They don't have money with them. And even if they did, that would be taken away from them in anyways. Right? So how did they ransom themselves, their family members would have to ransom
in their 70s. So there's a lot. So there are some who are poor, who couldn't afford to be ransom.
And their families didn't come. And sometimes some family members didn't want to come. Like there are some who are so mad that the Meccans last that they didn't go to ransom the prisoners. Now I'm not going like they were so bad. They're so sad. You know, because this is a big loss. You know, like some people, some people in our time, it's about sports, right? Like when their team loses, like, forget you.
Right? They act very, very like irrational. They act very, very irrational. Like those starts saying all kinds of stuff. Like, we were cheated, we should have won referees are on the other team. Like they always they only look for once. You know from from from their side, right? Like it whether it's a big soccer game, your team never loses. No, no, the referee always cheats.
Right? And he had no hope you can't. So this is a big battle we lost even though we had such, especially if you're expecting to win.
Right? You have such an, you know, stronger army, a better team. What happened? How'd you guys lose nothing. Can you stay there?
So believe it or not, some of the Mexicans were so mad. were so angry. Even though they had the opportunity to ransom. They didn't ransom immediately.
They didn't ransom immediately. They were in shock.
They were in shock. That this something like this could happen. That didn't ransom them immediately.
And so there were some prisoners who were like, we want to go home.
Like we want to go home. What do we do? How do we nobody's helping us do anything?
And they're tied up and they're as prisoners. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave them away.
said listen, if you can teach 1010 of the children of Medina
enough to read and write proficiently, we'll let you go.
So these prisoners, who are tied to the pillars in the masjid,
the prisoners, they were tied to the pillars and they had students.
They had students amongst the Companions, amongst the young, the youngsters, the children, they will come and they will learn. They would love why you might say, wait,
did we have a lot of Muslims who learn how to read and write? Yeah, but there's not enough.
Right because the people, the majority of the people in Medina did not know how to read.
So from because of this incident, the whole the whole culture of Medina when it came to education, and reading and writing with change, as a result of whom the prisoners
as a result of the prisoners. And so the prisoners, one of the narrations that come to us, even mentioned that, you know, the teacher, the teacher hit one of the children,
teacher hit to kill. And so the father and the parents got mad. And they said, you just go back, don't learn from him. Don't learn from him. In other words, you just sit there forget.
And what's going to happen
if this child that you're supposed to teach and he's supposed to learn, and once he learned how to read and write, you got to go home, and this guy is like,
I'm not gonna, how's the teacher gonna treat him?
Please? Just learn a little bad. Come on, come on, quickly. I need to go. Come on. He's gonna be nice to you.
Like if you don't learn, if you don't learn, he gets he just stays in Medina longer, he becomes a prisoner. Like everyone's going home. Like you got this one guy. They won't learn. Like, that's your problem. You teach them and you can't teach him you stay here until he learns. And what how's the teacher gonna be? He's gonna beg you to learn. You didn't be nice to you. It's heavy. Good you. Because if you don't learn anything, you sit there like, oh, man, I got a hard one did I gotta be nice to this guy. Because I want to go, oh, I want to go home. And so why am I mentioning this? Because the Prophet Salam said, man,
he, he was from where? from Mecca. The Meccans were people who learn who knew how to read and write.
And then how to read or write. And that's why the Prophet saw them ask them to teach ask these prisoners from Maccha to teach the children of the, the answer
to teach the children are the answer. So now you have 10
f4. For the prisoners who can't afford to ransom themselves. Yeah. 10 new 10 new youngsters who know how to read another 10 another 10. So, education came from the prisoners. That's like, even though you know, that's, even though the fact that taking ransom was something that was
the prophets on the school before. In fact, and we will mention that when we get to that time in sha Allah, but the Prophet sallallahu did not know how to read
even though he was extremely smart, intelligent, wise, but it was something that Allah subhanaw taala made as a miracle to prove his prophet hood and messenger show
that he wasn't and he doesn't. Some people might say, wait, some, some people might say, let's, what are they gonna say? Some people are gonna say, You know what, I'm going to follow the sudden and I learned how to read
and want to be
like, I'm gonna follow the sudden, whenever someone says that
you already know how to read.
The I went to follow the sudden, I'm not going to learn how to read or write
a young kid, you have two children. So sometimes they want to be smart, or smarter.
I'll follow the Sunnah. I don't want to learn how to read or write. And sometimes some people might because of the laziness, and I'm following the Sunnah.
I don't want to learn how to read or write. I don't know how to read and write. I'm falling sooner like the the T. How did we what did we say to those people? Well, yes, what do you what do you say to
us? Yes, but what's the what's the excuse? This they have a reason excuse right? What's the rebuttal against them? We say that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam does not know how does not need to learn how to
Read and Write anyways. Why? Because he is getting Why do you need to learn how to read or write? Do you need to learn? But the Messenger of Allah is receiving revelation knowledge from the one who knows all.
He doesn't need to go read the books of Aristotle,
or Socrates or anyone, any book, Allah,
the One who knows all is sending him information knowledge directly to the prophets on the lightning setup, without learning the reader, right? So we say unless you receive a revelation, which you can't, which you don't receive in relation, then we didn't you read.
You read, and that's why Allah subhana wa says it Quran to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he says, Well, my my nav bar for alpha Neva bunny had Ebola men nearly died, that he grabbed me again. And he squeezed me until I almost lost my breath. So my salary, then he released me imagine how he really, you know, you said when someone it's like someone's squeezing your neck so hard, that you can't breathe,
that you can't breathe, and then they release you.
What are you feeling?
tired, scared, like so many feelings? Right and you're just breathing catching your breath. And he said it again.
He says if I have any hernia, Look, buddy had Ebola, Ebola Mini. So he says Al Quran Allah, Acharya, I don't know how to read. I'm not really recited. I can't recite, I can't read.
And so he does it again, thumb out of suddenly for
recite and read the full tuna and Aria for a holiday for a hardening of attorney a failure. And then he did it again a third time. He squeezed me. Then he released me and he said it cannot recite.
And he says it might be a party. And finally, he says
a pura abyss Mira, because the follow up
follow up in Santa I mean, Allah,
a poorer overall Boko Haram, a lazy eye lemma Bill pile.
I live in Santa malam. Yeah,
that's where Allah Subhana Allah revealed the first verses. That's where it stopped and the rest is revealed later. In surah Allah but Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

When people read when people do things, what do they do? Some people they say, You know what, when people do something they do for others when they slaughtered they slaughtered for others. And so that's why sometimes I hear sometimes people are saying like, people saying, especially like in
like, I know in the champ community,
we had a janazah today at the masjid. And sometimes they are here the elders, they're always saying, you know, they always say to each other, hey, we have to go pray the janazah prayer not to go pledge and ask what about go because if you don't go What if you die? They're not going to come to pray.
Right? The heavy will say that.
They say no, if you die, then I'm gonna pray for you. So you have to go. They're not even thinking about doing it for the sake of Allah the reward from Allah subhana thought you're worried about but what?

You heard it there. If you're going to be on the ground, that's the least thing you want to worry about right now. Right you want you when you're worried about Allah. Whether Allah has pleased with you, not whether people are pleased with you or not.
