Allah subhanaw taala in these three verses and this is not continuing one from the lecture that we had last time, which spoke about the situation of the Arabs in general and duration in particular, before the coming and the birth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the political, religious socio economic situation that the Arabs used to reside in.

00:01:21--> 00:01:37

In the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't allude much and doesn't mention much of the early years of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the early years referring to the first 40 odd years of his life, before he became a prophet of Allah,

00:01:38--> 00:02:21

those 40 years in the books of sila, you will find narrations and you will find many generations and you find an outline and details concerning those 40 years where the profits on a low while he was selling was born, how he grew up his marriage to Khadija rhodiola Juana and a number of other incidents that took place in those 40 years. But in the Quran, the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is very interesting, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Perhaps only these three verses that I quoted to you and recited from Surah to Doha, they are the only mention of the early years of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Nowhere else in the oramo very rarely, anywhere else in the

00:02:21--> 00:03:02

Quran is mentioned made of those early years from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And there may be many reasons for this and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. But perhaps from those reasons is because those 14 years are not really important in terms of the context of the Quran. Because the Quran came to establish the tawheed of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he came to establish all of the principles and all of the things that are important in order to achieve that objective and that goal, the tawheed of Allah subhanho wa Taala and so therefore, those first 40 years because there was no Islam, there was no Nobu, where there was no Prophethood there was no

00:03:02--> 00:03:45

message that was given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam there was no and they are less important. And so therefore Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't really mention them, he skips them by in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala perhaps from the other reasons and wisdoms that they are not mentioned, is because Allah subhanho wa Taala does not want to detract from the focus of the remaining 23 years of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because there is those 23 years that we as Muslims, as an oma, those are the 23 years that we need to focus on concentrate on what took place from the moment that he became a prophet of Allah, until the moment that he would

00:03:45--> 00:04:24

pass away salallahu alayhi wa sallam, these three verses in Surah to Doha, and there is a context behind them. And the first five or so verses of surah, todo Javi were mentioned in another lecture insha Allah tala because they are to do with a whole different incident. And this is also something important for us to know just as a side point and one of the benefits studying the book of a large soldier from the sciences of the Quran. From the sciences of the Quran is a superb mazola the causes of Revelation, what are the circumstances and the reasons why certain verses were revealed? And also one of the things that the scholars also tried to do from the sciences of the Quran was that they

00:04:24--> 00:05:00

tried to establish a chronological order of how the different sources of concern were revealed. Surah Al Fatiha even though it is the first surah in the Quran, it was not the first one that was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam right. As you know, what was the first surah revealed the crop per acre of this mural because the holla is in the 13th jewels right towards the end of the Quran. And so the Quran, its current order is chronological. But what some of the scholars attempted to do was also mentioned to us the chronological order so that we

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

would know. So for example, you saw this mural Baker levy Hall up. Then some of the scholars said after this came sort of to Parliament solar noon, others said no, it was sort of in more depth than sort of Muslim men. And so they give the different order of how chronologically the Quran came down from the earliest revelations in Makkah, in the early period of Islam from the earliest revelations was sort of to Doha. And the reason why those first five verses of surah to Doha will reveal Mashallah will mention in a different lecture of forthcoming election insha Allah, they also pertain to the life and the scene of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but generally, just very

00:05:37--> 00:06:17

briefly, they pertain to a time when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thought that revelation had ceased, Revelation had stopped, for no apparent reason. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to seek contentment and used to enjoy receiving the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And as you can imagine, just for us to recite upon on when you understand and contemplate the Quran, the sweetness that you feel, the contentment that you take within your heart, just from being close to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala imagine how much more it would be worth those verses to be revealed upon you directly from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:06:17--> 00:07:04

sallam used to enjoy and look forward and yearn for the Quran to be revealed to him. But a time came and stopped, seized for a number of days. And then Allah azzawajal revealed those first verses of surah to Doha. After those first five verses Allah subhana wa Taala to show how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would never be abandoned by Allah. Allah will never forsake Him, let alone doing worse than forsaking him hating him or leaving him or abandoning him. Allah subhanaw taala says alemi aged care team and for our did a lot of find you as an orphan. And then he gave you shelter. Did you not find you as an orphan referring to what the childhood of the Prophet sallallahu

00:07:04--> 00:07:52

wasallam does he not find you as an orphan and give you shelter? What would you rather call ball and Fada and did you not find you a stray misguided, and he guided you? Baba Jetta Clara Elan for governor and he did he not find you poor, impoverished, and he made you rich, he gave you provided for you. These three things that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned are the three things are the three roles that any guardian or parent or carer plays when it comes to their children. For those of us that have children, our role as parents falls under these three things. Number one, is to give our children a safe environment, to make sure that they have a good home, to make sure that they

00:07:52--> 00:08:29

have everything that they could need that is comfortable in their home a place to sleep, make sure that the house is heated, warm, make sure that they have enough, enough of those things that they need to make it a comfortable living place. That's the first thing that a parent does. When it comes to a child, you provide them a suitable and a safe environment from which they can grow. The second thing that a parent does when it comes to a child is that they give them guidance and advice. When your child grows up, and they go through especially their formative years when they get old enough to understand and comprehend. They reach the ages of 789 and then other growing up. That is the time

00:08:29--> 00:08:49

that as a parent to impart your advice on them. Do this, don't do that. Take this option, don't take that option. We from our parents believe this is better for you, this is not better for you. And you give advice you try to guide you try to help. And the third thing that a parent does is that they provide for their children, food,

00:08:50--> 00:09:33

clothing, money, those things that a child needs in order to grow up and live that life. These are the roles that are apparent please. Allah subhanaw taala obviously isn't the parent to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah subhanaw taala isn't in that relationship with any of his creation, for Allah subhanho wa Taala is far above and high and far above all of this. But still if you look at those three verses, and the three aspects that Allah subhanaw taala mentions, as Allah azza wa jal cared for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in these three ways. They still fall under that same remit, and that same type of discussion. Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that he

00:09:33--> 00:10:00

is the one forget his father, mother, grandfather, uncle, anyone else before all of them or any of them. Allah subhanho wa Taala was the one who protected His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Allah zildjian was the one who guided the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah subhanho wa Taala was the one who provided for the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam protection provision and guidance. They

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

came from Allah subhanho wa Taala before any human hand had a role to play in it. So Allah subhanaw taala tells us and gives us a glimpse at the early years of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as Allah says was an orphan. When he was born, his mother passed away. She died at the age of 39. His mother, his father passed away whilst his mother was pregnant with him. Amina was pregnant with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. His father, Abdullah died before he was born. And so he grew up or he came into this world he was born as an orphan. Because in the Arabic language the word year team often means the one who has lost their

00:10:42--> 00:11:22

father. In English, we normally call an orphan, someone who's lost both parents, but in Arabic, your team is someone who has lost their father. So even if their mother is alive, they're still considered to be an orphan. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born as an orphan, and he grew up as an orphan, and his mother would die whilst he was only six years old, and then he would come under the guardianship of his grandfather, Abdullah McCollum, only for two years and he too would die when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was only eight years old, and then as we know, he came under the custodianship and the guardianship of his uncle Abu Talib, in those early

00:11:22--> 00:11:58

years wants to his mother was still alive. And this shows how Allah subhanaw taala when he is saying in this in these verses, that he is the one that gave shelter and protection to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is not the way that a parent would give shelter to a child, meaning that Allah subhanaw taala didn't build for him a house or do anything like a normal parent would do. When Allah subhanaw taala gave guidance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it doesn't mean that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was upon shirk, because the prophets of Allah even before they become prophets of Allah are safeguarded from schilke, the safeguarded from that type of evil,

00:11:59--> 00:12:36

but he means that Allah azza wa jal please things before he made his path, easy for him, so that he would reach that position where eventually Allah would bestow upon him the prophethood and the message of Islam and Allah azza wa jal provided for him not in the way that a parent would give you food or drink or clothing, but a larger which are provided for him in Fall greater wings. Allah subhanho wa Taala plan for him and this is the first thing or one of the first things that we mentioned in the series when we draw the parallels between the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and the life of the Prophet Musa alayhis salam, and how a large dogen says in the Quran

00:12:36--> 00:13:18

concerning the Prophet Musa alayhis salam was a token in FCW. I have chosen you owe Moosa for myself. Likewise, Alonzo vigil prepared for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam everything. And we mentioned the story of the digging and the finding of Zamzam and the story of the companions and the army of the elephants. Allah subhanho wa Taala here is doing the same thing, that even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam grew up in difficult circumstances, having lost his father than he will lose his mother at a young age than his grandfather would also pass when he was still a young man or still a young boy. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala protected him, provided for him guided

00:13:18--> 00:13:32

him to the path that he wanted him to follow. subhana wa Tada. larussa withdrawal says that he was an orphan during that time, and he was an orphan, whilst his mother was still alive. It was the common practice of the Arabs,

00:13:33--> 00:14:10

that they would send their children to the desert so that the Bedouins could look after them. And they would stay in the desert for a year or two. And they would grow up and be educated at the hand of the Bedouin alums. Why? Because the Bedouin Arabs used to live in the desert. We're known for the eloquence and the pristine Arabic language. And they were known to follow the ways of the old Arabs. They didn't live in cities, and they were overcome by the city ways and the way that the city folk normally live their lives. They used to live on their own, and so the Arabs will send their children and they will be successful there. And at the same time, they would grow up learning the pristine

00:14:10--> 00:14:49

Arabic language. So as young children, two three years old, this is what they will do for two or three years. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was no exception. His mother sent him to a woman by the name of Halima, Saudia haleema became his witness. And she had other children as well. This was her job, this is what she did. She had other children also that came from different families, and a group of those children were under her care. In Sahih, Muslim, the hadith of nsep man he called the Allah one. He says that was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in the care of haleema. And he was playing with one day he was playing with the other boys that were also

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

under the care of that same woman Halima. As they were playing Jubilee rally his salatu salam came to them in the form of a man and we know from the Quran and we know

00:15:00--> 00:15:28

Authentic Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Allah has given the angels at times to take the form of men. They have that ability. They can come and they can appear as men, on more than one on more than one occasion. After Islam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam met gibreel and Sheba his Salaam was in the form of a man. Anyway, gvrd Sanam came in the form of a man to these group of children, these boys once they were playing,

00:15:29--> 00:15:42

and he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he picked him out. And he came to him, and he made him lie down, I placed him on the ground. And then he opened up his chest, and he took his heart out.

00:15:43--> 00:16:25

And then he said, and he removed from his heart, something black, a black substance, and he said how the how blue shape Bunnymen. This is the portion that shaper normally would have had in your heart, because we know as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that shape and runs in our veins, like blood runs in our veins. And every single one of us has a shape on that whispers to us. So the professor seldom has been told he Blairism is a boy, he doesn't really understand. But he says, This is the portion that chipin would have had from you. And then he took the heart of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and he washed it in the water of Zamzam. And then he placed it back into

00:16:25--> 00:16:27

his chest, and he sealed him up.

00:16:29--> 00:16:49

Those boys who saw this, obviously they see a man just taking one of their friends, placing them on the ground, ripping up chairs, taking out his heart. It's traumatic at the best of times, they go and run to the wetness, their mother Halima and they say to her that Mohammed is dead, someone just came and killed him.

00:16:51--> 00:17:31

In the Mohammed and Mohammed is dead, someone's killed him. So she's obviously worried because this is a child under her care. She ran and she found that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alive and well, but he was pale. Something that happened but she didn't know. And the only thing that she had to go by was the testimonies of four and five year old boys, six, seven year old boys. So she became afraid and she took him back to his mother and she said, I don't want your son with me anymore. I can't look after him, take him back. And so he was returned to his mother and a sibling manic rhodiola guanine that unoriginal sorry Muslim, he said that I could still see and this is many

00:17:31--> 00:18:14

years later unassuming Malik only came into contact with the prophet of Salaam in Medina after so talking at least 4050 years later, unassuming Malik says that I could still see on the chest of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the marking of where his chest was open, and then sealed again. I could still see the mark on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam now there are many wisdoms from the story and many reasons why this incident took place and from them and alara soldier knows best. But from them is that Allah subhanho wa Taala from that, from that very early moment in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah was preparing him to become a prophet, Allah azza wa

00:18:14--> 00:18:55

jal was preparing him for revelation and preparing him for the message of Islam. And this is why when a large visual says that I found your way you will not an orphan. And a large soldier is the one who gave you protection, where you will not miss guide and Allah is the one who guided you. Will you not poor impoverished and a large student is the one who provided for you. It doesn't just mean in materialistic terms, doesn't just mean in terms of sustenance of food and drink, and the way that we would normally look after our children. But rather Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that a large majority is looking after him in far greater ways. Allah subhanaw taala his care and protection for

00:18:55--> 00:19:38

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began many, many years before he received revelation and he became a prophet of Allah. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala prepared him for Prophethood one of the other reasons and wisdoms behind the story and behind this incident is so that many years later on when the prophet SAW Selim did become a prophet of Allah, the orange would have no excuse to reject Him, because they wouldn't be able to fault his character. And that's why from an early age, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was safeguarded from sinning and safeguarded from evil, the evil acts that the people of grace would normally perform, and he was safeguarded from shock. Because he

00:19:38--> 00:20:00

for the first 40 years of his life, he had performed sharp worshipped idols, worship those Gods alongside Orosz, then all of a sudden one day, turns up and says, No, that's wrong. This is something which doesn't make sense. How can you worship these gods? Perhaps those people would have said to him, but you used to do exactly the same thing. For 40 3040 odd years you've done exactly

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

To be the same thing, and now all of a sudden, you've had some light bulbs switch on, they could have said this to him. So Allah subhanho wa Taala protected him from this. They could have said, for example, that for 3040 years, we know that what you've been up to drinking fornicating doing this doing that this is what you used to do. And now all of a sudden, you claim to be a pious man, you claim to be a changed, man, we don't believe you. So instead, Allah subhanaw taala preserved the honor of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he safeguarded him from this evil.

00:20:34--> 00:21:13

And that's why it's mentioned in some narrations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never partook, he never took part in any of the lewd and evil actions that the people have or issues to do, and what was prevalent amongst them. And there is even a narration that says and there is some difference of opinion over the authenticity of this narration, but some scholars said it is authentic, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I never did any evil that the people of Piraeus used to do, except that on two occasions, I was tempted to do so. And the process of settling before he became before he reached the age of 1011, he used to be a shepherd, as

00:21:13--> 00:21:52

mentioned in Sahara behati, where the prophet SAW Selim said that every prophet of Allah that came was a shepherd, used to herd sheep for a period of time. The brothel center was a shepherd for some time, he said that whilst I was a shepherd, there were other boys who were shepherds alongside me. So I said to one of them one day, that tonight I am going to go to Makkah, and do as the other men of McAdoo, meaning engage in their evil actions. And so he said that I went to Makkah, and I saw that the people were celebrating a wedding. And in this wedding, they would have music and they would have drinking and people will fornicating around the boiler, they will do all sorts of evil.

00:21:52--> 00:22:31

And so he said, the proper setup said that I heard and he was a young boy, I had all of this commotion going on, the people were celebrating. And he went to have a look like a curious boy, he does goes to look to see. And then perhaps if things are carried on, partake, but Allah subhanaw taala had preserved and saved him. So the Prophet Solomon said that when I heard the music, I sat, I sat there listening to it, I fell asleep. Didn't even go into See I just fell asleep. And the only thing that woke me up was the heat of the sun of the morning. So we just slept through the whole thing. And he just slept there. And it was only because the day became so hot that he woke up and

00:22:31--> 00:23:10

realized where he was. So he went back to the ship. And his friend said, what happened last night, the professor sent him said nothing. But I'm going to go back tonight. Second occasion, you went back again and again, there was a celebration or some type of festivity. And again, the process and the Monte to see and hear, but again, as soon as he heard the music and the sound, sleep over came in, and he fell asleep. And he only woke up when the sun of the morning the heat of the morning came and struck him and saw the process and then went back and his friend said what are you doing what happened? And the Prophet seldom said to him, nothing happened and he ignored it. So this is one

00:23:10--> 00:23:36

narration that says that shows that the Prophet is seldom was safeguarded in this way, he will save God and Allah subhanho wa Taala didn't allow this to become an excuse late one. And that's where Lars though Gil says in verse 69 of salt minion, m lamea ID for Rasul Allah whom for whom la Oman key rune, do they the oration not know this man, who is the Messenger of Allah? Or do they just acknowledge

00:23:37--> 00:24:16

me meaning that these people in the in the context of this verse is that a large silver gel is rebuking the corporation the people of Makkah for rejecting the profit or sell them and rejecting the Quran? And Allah azza wa jal says, There are only possibly two reasons why they would reject this, this revelation. The first is Flm. Yet the bar on call. The first thing is that they can't contemplate the Quran doesn't make sense to them, Scott mistakes in it, so contradictions in it, there is weakness in it. And so it doesn't make sense. That's the first reason why they will reject it. Well, the second reason is amla merely for so long, that this man who has come to them with this

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

message, they don't know him. Someone unknown to them is a stranger. They don't know his background. They don't know his family. They don't know his honor. They don't know his piety. They don't know whether he's a truthful man or a liar. They don't know anything about him.

00:24:30--> 00:24:59

But both of those reasons, were non existent when it came to the Quran and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The Orion made complete and perfect sense to them from the point of view of the Arabic language, and from the eloquence and the beauty and the poetic nature of the Quran, and they were unable to rival it in any way nor take any mistake from it. And the man who had bought the message meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They knew him and they knew his father before

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

him and his grandfather before him and his great grandfather before him, and they knew where he came from, and they knew how we grew up. And they knew how he came to be a man. And they used to even attest to his character and his honesty and integrity, and truthfulness. But now all of a sudden they rejected him. And so a lot so Intel says MLM yadi for so long. Did they not know this man who came to him didn't or know where he came from? Do they not know his family, his background, his upbringing? What reason do they have of suspecting him of being a liar of bringing false speech to them, of asking them to believe in something which is wrong? And so Allah subhanaw taala shows how

00:25:43--> 00:26:07

by preserving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam throughout his early years, Allah subhanho wa Taala will take away this excuse from the people of Porsche, but not only from the people of Piraeus. In fact, throughout the Quran, we find that Allah subhanaw taala mentions that the prophets of Allah who came before him, they predicted and they prophesized that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would eventually come.

00:26:08--> 00:26:52

And that's when the Hadith and read about it Maasai are the Allah and the Prophet said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that it was written in the Book of Allah, in the preserved tablet of Allah, that I would be the final of the prophets of Allah, I would be the last of the prophets of Allah. And this was written before Adam was even created from clay. Whilst he will still clay before he was even created, Allah had already decreed that the prophet SAW Allah He will sell them would be the final and last of messengers, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and I will tell you where this began from, indeed, my forefather Ibrahim may do for me, and the Prophet rissalah. He Sam

00:26:52--> 00:27:36

gave glad tidings that I would come. And when I when my mother gave birth to me, she saw a vision that there was a light emanating from her that would illuminate the castles and the houses of a sham all the way in Syria. She saw this and this hadith is authentic has been authenticated Bashar Al Burnie and others Rahim Allah wa Taala. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying that not only do Quraysh know him from his background and his family and so on, but Allah subhanaw taala preserved his mentioned he prophesized that he would come many years before this many generations before this, the prophets of Allah, all of them knew that a messenger that the final messenger would

00:27:36--> 00:28:14

soon come, they just didn't know when he would come. They didn't know if they if you would come in, in their time in their generation, or whether he would come at some later date. And that's where loss of Hannah darlin Salatu Baqarah, when he speaks about the Prophet, Ibrahim, and he said, I'm the daughter of Ibrahim, that the prophets Allah mentioned in the Hadith. It is mentioned in Surah Al Baqarah, where Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam raised the foundations of the Kaaba, alongside his son is meriel Ali, his Salatu was salam, and the ways that they built the Kaaba, and then Ibrahim alayhis salam made a number of duels for Makkah, and for the inhabitants of Makkah. And from amongst those

00:28:14--> 00:29:03

vowels is the he made a dua, that a Prophet would come in Makkah from amongst the people of Makkah. Allah subhanaw taala says, or ogburn, our birth fee him rosulip min. Whom you have to know early in your attic, while you are Lima, humulene kita hikmat, our user came in, tell us hours is on hiking, oh, my lord. And these two houses four or five girls that are mentioned in this passage of the Quran, Ibrahim alayhis salam for each one of them. He begins by saying, oh my lord, because in each one of those two hours, he makes two for something new. All of them is all of them pertain to McCann, the people of Makkah, but each one of them is something additional and new for macker, or

00:29:03--> 00:29:24

for the people of Makkah. And that's why from the etiquettes of dwara, is that when you're making dua for something new, even if the context and subject is the same, you repeat, calling onto Allah by his names and his attributes of Hannah Medina. And so he said, Oh, my Lord, son from amongst them, a messenger who would come from them.

00:29:25--> 00:30:00

Who would come and he won't we cite your verses. And He will teach the people the book and wisdom and he will purify them. Indeed, you are the one who has all might own wisdom. So Ibrahim alayhis salam made to have a look at how he says over law, send amongst them a messenger who would come from them. Twice. He says this, to emphasize the same point that this messenger on prophet wouldn't come from outside of Mecca number one, and number two, that he would be from amongst those people.

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

Meaning from the people of Makkah from the tribes of Mecca from the lineage of that same group of people. And so some of the scholars say that the reason for this is Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam indirectly is making dua for his own children. Because it's made out of history, Moses son, and he was settled in Makkah. And he wanted the honor of having this prophet of Allah who would be the greatest and final messengers of Allah, to be from his lineage, to be from his children. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, responded to that.

00:30:33--> 00:31:13

And he also made the dryer that he should be from amongst them, so that those people would have no excuse to reject Him. This man wouldn't be a stranger or a foreigner amongst them, he would be from them. And so they would have no excuse in rejecting Him. And also at the same time, because he is from amongst them, he will understand them best, and he will know them, and he will recognize them and what they need, and therefore he would be able to give that to them in the best of ways. And that's what Lauren's the witch of whenever he sends a prophet to any nation or any group of, he says in the Quran, he always sent them with the language from them that Prophet came from amongst those

00:31:13--> 00:31:27

people. Well, my cell number was solian, Illa, bellisseria, calm, we never sent a messenger except that he spoke the tongue of his people, he came from them, they knew who he was, they knew where he came from, and they knew his background.

00:31:28--> 00:32:09

So the Prophet Ibrahim Alayhi, Salatu was made to her. And he made the either the props or cinema recite the verses of Allah, that He will teach those people the revelation. And then He will teach those people wisdom. And when he's making this to our, the tense that he uses is the present tense, or will love continuously allow him to recite your verses, continuously allow him to teach the revelation and the wisdom, even though Ibrahim alayhis salam for him, it is something which is in the future for something which is present at his time. But the reason why in the Arabic language, the present tense is used is to show that it's something which will be continuous that the prophets

00:32:09--> 00:32:52

of Salaam, His revelation, his message would last wouldn't be like the other prophets of Allah who after their deaths, that message will stop with them. When the next Prophet came, he would abrogate some of that profit of that previous prophets message and rules and laws, and he would make new additions to them, but rather for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his message would be everlasting. Likewise in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala in Surah, two soft, he mentioned the glad tidings of reciting his Salatu was Salam there in Saudi his Salaam told his people to expect a messenger on a profit would come. last panel Donna says, What color is Ave Maria Maria Bernie is SMA

00:32:52--> 00:33:36

IL. Yeah, Bernie is SMA ILA in nee rasulillah e. La con mucho de Lima by Anya de Yamuna, rah, rah mobile, Shirin buros, only to remember this movie, our mother. And remember, when he saw the son of Mary said to the children of Israel, or children of Israel, indeed, I am the messenger of Allah to you. And I have come bearing truth, and affirming what has already been revealed to you in the Torah, the Torah was given to musala his Salatu was Salam. And I bring glad tidings that a man will come after me, his name will be

00:33:38--> 00:34:20

and he uses the name. And Ahmed as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, is one of his names. The Prophet Salim said from my name is Ahmed. And Ahmed is the name that is used here. Were in Saudi his Salatu was Salam. Why did he use the name Ahmed and not Mohammed, which is the actual name of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. Some of the scholars said, Because denotes a number of things. Number one, that this is a title that was given to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam span his actual name, but it's a title that was given to him. Because the word name in the Arabic language can have one of three meanings. It can either mean your actual name, so you know, Muhammad

00:34:20--> 00:35:00

an accent, and job and whatever your name is, that's what it refers to. And the word Islam in Arabic language, the word name can also mean your title. So if you're known by something, if you're known by a nickname, you're known by a certain a certain name, or a set nickname, that's not your real name. It also refers to that. And number three, it can also refer to something which is a description of you. So something which describes you something watch, if I say, personal will know who you are. If I say the doctor, and you know who that person means a description of the person. It's not actually his name, but through it. You know who I'm talking

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

About that also in the Arabic language is known as name. And so the reason why

00:35:06--> 00:35:49

rissalah is salatu salam uses the name is because the name mammoth fits all three of them. It was the actual name of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It was his title, because the name Akhmad mean someone who is praised, and he was his description, because every single one of the of the traits and characteristics and attributes of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was something praiseworthy. And so likewise the Prophet ricciarelli his thought was Salam also gave blood tide of the Prophet that would come and further than this, Allah Subhana Allah mentions in Nepal and a verse, which is generic, that every single prophet that came, he foretold the coming of the Prophet

00:35:49--> 00:36:49

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanaw taala says, We've heard Allah homie, Punjabi Naveen allama day to come in kita lemma to come in kita Bo hikmah from majha como la masa de Lima mera kaam. Let me know Nabil he wala Tom Solon, Paul upon our tamala g come easily. Paulo Khurana, Paula fish hadoo, an American Ushahidi Allah Subhana Dionysus. And remember, when we took the covenant, the pledge, from all of the profits, from all of the profits, we took a pledge and a covenant and a covenant in the Arabic language, the word mythique doesn't just mean a promise, but it is a binding promise. It's not just your word, and an oath, or a promise that you give, but it is binding, it

00:36:49--> 00:36:51

becomes a pledge and a covenant.

00:36:52--> 00:37:35

Remember, when we took the covenant from all of the prophets, that when they came, they would bring the revelation that they were given, and they would give the wisdom that they were given? When if the messenger King amongst them? Who is the messenger, referring to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if he happened to come at that time amongst them, because we know that there were prophets of Allah, some of them two or three would come at the same time. Like Ibrahim, how do you set out this marine his heart than his heart with your pull the noose of a one time more than a prophet of Allah would be present. So if the Messenger of Allah came during your time, let me know, Nabil, the

00:37:35--> 00:38:23

pledge is that you would be leaving him one atom soon. And the other pledges that you would help him and assistant, you would become followers of him, you would help him to achieve his message you would submit to Him and you would believe in Him, fallen victim to Marilla. The condition is Allah said to all of those prophets, do you agree with this? Do you attest to this, and you take this firm pledge, this firm covenant, although all of them said we agree, all of them said we test on a law, all of a shadow, or an American minister, he didn't so then Allah said, bear witness, and I too, will be a witness alongside you. So each of the prophets of Allah was told of the Prophet salallahu

00:38:23--> 00:39:02

alayhi wasallam, that he would come and not only that, but if he happened to come, that they would have to follow Him, and that they would assist him. And so Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this in many places in the Quran. So the point of all of this is to show how Allah subhanho wa Taala is preserving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even before he came, his honor. And then when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam grew up as an orphan, how Allah subhanho wa Taala cared for him. How large though which will protected him, Allah subhanaw taala preserved his honor, so that when eventually he would become a prophet of

00:39:02--> 00:39:44

Allah, and when eventually he would receive that revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. The people of Quraysh will be unable to criticize him. And so even though there are only two or three verses in the Quran, look at the vast meaning of them. Look at how when you ponder and contemplate them, you see, not only the extent to which Allah subhanaw taala cared for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but it also shows how Allah subhanho wa Taala cares and protect for his only year for the believers. When you turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and you place your trust in Allah azza wa jal and you rely upon Allah subhana wa Taala irrespective of the difficulty that you're going through,

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

even though sometimes the circumstances in front of you and before your eyes seem difficult, because you know that the whole life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was trying upon trial, difficulty upon difficulty hardship upon hardship.

00:40:00--> 00:40:41

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wasn't safeguarded from pain in that way to lose your father to lose your to lose your grandfather at a young age is traumatic for anyone, for any child. Yet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had something which preserved him, and that was the production of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, they're indeed the prophets of Allah, are the ones who are most severely tried. And then those who are similar to them, and then those who are similar to them. But the believer is the one who doesn't just look at what's taking place in front of the eyes and become despondent. Become a person who

00:40:41--> 00:41:22

dispense from the mercy of Allah feel that there's no hope there's no chances no good because they always know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the best of planners, and that every decree and decision that Allah subhanaw taala makes and takes, there is ultimate wisdom and ultimate knowledge behind it. And Allah azza wa jal is all hearing an old sin and all knowing, and he subhana wa Taala is the best of planners, and the best of protectors. So despite the difficulty, Allah subhanaw taala shows how he cares for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this just isn't just with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam all of the stories of the prophets of Allah, you will find this recurring

00:41:22--> 00:41:49

theme. If you look at the story of Musa alayhis salam and the circumstance that he grew up in the fact that his mother had to throw him into the river, just to save his life. She had to trust in Allah and placed him in the Nile. It's not just a small canal that we have in Birmingham, right? It's not just something smaller ish places. This is the river Nile, the mighty is greatest river on the planet Earth. But she trusts in a lunch he places him in the river.

00:41:50--> 00:42:29

Why? Because that circumstance is difficult. But Allah subhana wa Taala will protect him showing how we'll learn. So john, when he chooses to help someone, and the believers or those who when they seek the help of Allah, they then place their trust in Allah subhanaw taala as well. They know that even though the result may not be something that they like or something that they would want to something that they would desire, but because Allah decreed that for them, there is ultimately good in it for them. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam grew up in that circumstance, grew up in the difficult time, where he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alone. And then Allah subhana wa tada

00:42:30--> 00:43:10

mentions Not only that, but that he provided for him, because he grew up as an orphan, and he grew up as poor. And we know that the prophet SAW Allah Allah He was Selim eventually began working for Khadija rhodiola, who was a wealthy woman amongst Quraysh. And she was a businesswoman, she would have caravans that would go in the summer and the winter months like the Arabs did to a sham and Yemen and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became one of those people that she trusted, and she entrusted him with her wealth, and her her possessions or her merchandise and so on, because he was trustworthy, and because of his character, and his integrity, and his honesty, and so on. And

00:43:10--> 00:43:49

that then led him eventually, or her eventually to offering to marry the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And then when she married him, she would further support him with her wealth, and with her life, or the Allah who I'm her word. And so Allah subhanaw taala cared for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he provided for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Allah subhanaw taala says will agenda cobalt and father and did you not also find you a stray misguided, and he guided you? And this doesn't mean when Allah Subhana Allah says that he found him misguided doesn't mean that he was upon shell Korea to be law. Does it mean that the prophets Allah was engaged in

00:43:49--> 00:44:28

Cofer, because we know that he never worshipped idols, never commit to shock in his life, never did those things that the people used to do at the time. That's not the meaning of this the process and always had the essence of tawheed in the sense that he never worship other than Allah. But what he means is that the prophets of Salaam didn't know the details of he man didn't know the details of revelation didn't have knowledge as to how he should worship Allah and come closer to Allah didn't understand the concept of gender, and now paradise and Hellfire and the day of judgment and all of those other things that we know as a result of Islam and the Quran. And so Allah subhanaw taala

00:44:28--> 00:44:59

system for example, in the final verses of Surah assura Allah subhanaw taala says, worker Veronica ohioana go ham in Medina, ma upon email kita voila, Emma and Wallah King Jana who know Ron nahi nahi B HeMan Nasha amin Reba Dena, we're in natella deha de la si Rocklin muster beam and thus

00:45:00--> 00:45:42

We gave to you from the inspiration we gave to you Oh Mohammed Sana Allah alayhi wa sallam inspiration and revelation and we brought you to life because of that revelation, because true life. True living in this world, is when a person is open to the guidance of law, when a person turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they follow the commandments and the revelation that Allah is the original sin down, that is when they are truly alive. And that's why Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, that those who turn away from him are not alive. They're not alive, even though they live in the eating, they're drinking, they're breathing, they're doing the normal bodily functions. In

00:45:42--> 00:46:25

reality, they're not alive. Because the true life is the life of the heart and the soul. That is the life that Allah subhana wa Taala wants us to live. And that is why the purpose of the own and ultimately, is to bring life and nourishment to the heart, not to the body, because that's what food and drink is for. And so what often happens and one of the greatest traps of shavon is when he twists this and makes us think that a real life is in preserving our bodies, not in preserving our hearts. And so we stay in our bodies and we nourish them, but we neglect our hearts to the extent that even if the Quran was to be recited, we don't feel any type of movement in our hearts, no

00:46:25--> 00:47:09

softening of the heart. No contemplating the verses of Allah subhanaw taala no ability to be able to cry at the words of a large soldier. Why? Because we've so long neglected our heart that is more or less dry and dead. That is why the Quran was revealed so that he would come and address the heart. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala when he speaks about the revelation of the Quran, he says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam nors Allah be your role. I mean, gebe rerelease Salaam came with this revelation, or the public, and he came with it to your heart, or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not your mind, not your eyes, not your body, he came with it to your heart,

00:47:10--> 00:47:51

because that is what the opponent does, it brings it back to life. So Allah subhanaw taala is saying in the sort of soul to show raw land soldier is saying we are the ones who brought you to life by the revelation we gave to you. And Allah is directly addressing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mark on Twitter did email keytab when he man before this meaning in the first 40 years of your life, you never knew the meaning of Eman the meaning of true faith, nor did you know the meaning of revolution. He didn't understand. That doesn't mean that the Prophet solemn was worshipping other than Allah No. But what he means is that he didn't know the details of Eman how to

00:47:51--> 00:48:10

worship Allah, how to come closer to Allah how to believe in Allah how to attain the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Taala we're lacking Jana we'll move on. Now her DB HeMan Nasha women are bad. But we are the ones meaning en la is the one who places this light in the hearts of whomsoever He wills

00:48:11--> 00:48:58

and that's why I lost him handle Darla in another verse Allah azza wa jal also says in Surah, two lancair Boat womma come to loom in cobbly him in kita wala taho Toby me Nick, either. Laura Tarbell mobile clone. And before this meaning before your prophet one before in the first 40 years of your life. You never used to recite the Quran, recite revelation? No, were you able to write it down? Because you didn't have revelation you didn't understand revelation, you didn't appreciate the beauty of the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so Allah subhanaw taala in these ways, he gives us indications of the first 14 years of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:48:58--> 00:49:38

and those years that would eventually take him up to the point where he would sallallahu alayhi wasallam be ready to receive that first revelation in the case. So lots of panel data is showing in these three verses in Surah to Doha, where you will not an orphan and Allah is the one who protected you and will you not astray and Allah is the one who guided you. And will you are not poor and Allah azza wa jal is the one who provided for you. On loss of Hannah Diana is showing how in those early years, even though there was no revelation, no angel GB Valley Salaam, nothing of that sort of nature. Allah subhanaw taala still cared and preserved and protected. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:49:39--> 00:49:59

wa sallam and with that inshallah Allah we're going to come on to the next stage. And that will be when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam actually receives those first few verses and the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala as well as the origin that gives us the ability to understand the Koran and to contemplate on on and to study the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:50:00--> 00:50:28

Eliminating benefit from it. And it's colossal panel data that through this process we increase and our love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and by doing so we attain the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that Allah azzawajal makes us from amongst those people who will be resurrected under the flag of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and in his companionship and what a blessing companionship that is, or sort of lower on Nebula Mohammed, what are the early he will succumb Germaine Salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
