a mother.

00:00:21--> 00:00:44

Loss of Hannah huhtala says in the first five verses of Surah macduffie there are over Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Yeah, Johan modus ponens. vid, the war back in Africa build with the back of our head, World War Joseph Jordan.

00:00:47--> 00:01:31

In the previous lesson last week, we spoke about the beginning of the revelation that was given to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And in particular the first few verses that will reveal of sola to the HELOC properties muroc bicolor. The column that Allah subhana wa gyla began the revelation from and the journey of the Prophet one of our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also began. And we spoke about the long duration of our shuttle Viola huanghai that is mentioned in z and Buhari, in which he recalls in detail the events leading up to the revelation and then what took place after that revelation. And the portion that we stopped at was the actual versus being revealed

00:01:31--> 00:01:46

itself and lit of seal and some of the eloquence and the significance of those verses and how Allah subhanho wa Taala began this religion with the commandment to read the commandment upon reading an education and seeking knowledge and learning.

00:01:47--> 00:02:29

And we finished last week after we spoke about those verses, we ended without finishing the rest of the narration of ash or the Allahu Sangha, after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had received those verses. And this revelation came to him so Allah while he was sending them, he went back home to his wife, her digital, the loved one. And he was in a state of terror. He was in a state in which he was afraid, because of what he had experienced what he had seen something which was new to him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was unsure of what to make of it. So when he came in some of the narrations say that he asked his wife for the job of your loved one, our mother,

00:02:30--> 00:02:44

to cover him, to calm him down. And he recalled what to pay. So he mentioned to her, what took place with him in the cave of Iraq, for the journal, the alarm rang her at this juncture, her

00:02:45--> 00:03:27

actions or sentiments towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the way that she interacts him is pivotal. And it shows you not only the depth and the bond, the depth of the bond, and the relationship between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and for the job of your loved one. But it also shows you the wisdom of Khadija rhodiola, Juana and how much she placed stock in the integrity and the trustworthiness and the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because perhaps it could have been the case, when a husband comes back to their wife and he mentions an incident that is out of this world or something which isn't commonplace, it can be

00:03:27--> 00:04:10

perhaps easy for the wife to cast suspicion upon the husband, or to say that she doesn't believe him, or to think that he's joking or making a mockery or just in some way, shape or form. Bahati God Allah, who knows the integrity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she is mature enough and wise enough to see that this isn't just some prank knowledge, it's something which is befitting the nature of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that he would just and joking this way. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he mentions this incident to her. Her reaction is pivotal. Because she says to him, Allah He la Yahoo's ecola, that By Allah, Allah will never forsake you. For

00:04:10--> 00:04:34

You are the one who helps the needy, and you are hospitable to the guest, and you stand up for truth and justice, meaning you are a person who stands up for all that is good, for all that is exemplary, and Alonzo vigil will not forsake you. And then in order to come the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam further the Hadith mentions that she took him to her cousin,

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

a cousin, a man by the name of Walker, even nofal. And what we know from was an elderly man at his time, and he was a man who was learned in the scriptures of the Jews and the Christians. He knew of the scriptures of the Torah and the Gospel, understood them read them had studied them. And even though the pre dominant religion within Makkah and within the Arabian Peninsula was idolatry,

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

idol worship and paganism and so on. There were a few people there were Jewish tribes that lived within the Arabian Peninsula. And there were people who are Christians. And they were people who as we said, In a previous lesson, there were people who adhere to the Abrahamic faith. They were monotheists. They believed in the region of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and he was known, and they were known as the hanifin. What have I been known for was a man who had studied the scriptures. And he understood about this. And because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is saying that he saw someone who came to him and told him to recite his relaying things that seem like an angel and

00:05:40--> 00:06:10

revelation and so on. For the job of the Allah who aren't her took her to the person that she knew, would understand this most and best, she took him to work I even know full and the prophets on a long wire they He will send them relayed to him, what had taken place, the whole incident. What have I been over replied, and he said, this is the angel. This is the same Angel, or the angel that came to you is the same angel that came to the Prophet moosari. His Salatu was Salam.

00:06:11--> 00:06:48

Now, this statement here that this angel is the same angel that came to the Prophet Musa alayhis salam, it's not something which we have the time to go in now in depth, but inshallah perhaps, in a future lesson we will explore this because there is extremely important, why from all of the prophets of Allah azza wa jal dwaraka even know for Jews, the Prophet Musa alayhis salam. And this is a question which needs some pondering. Because if what have I been known for was a man who understood Jewish scriptures and Christian scriptures, then the prophet who came after moosari salaam and the Prophet therefore, who would be the closest corner logically to our Prophet

00:06:48--> 00:07:32

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be who recently his Salam and the Arabs were people who had a link, a strong link, and a proud link to the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam, and his son is married to his Salaam, it even so he didn't say that this is the angel that came to the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam, nor does he mention Adam histogram even though he is the father of mankind for one of those prophets that he could have chosen, he chose the Prophet Musa alayhis salam and perhaps inshallah we will explore this further one. But when you look throughout the Quran, one of the recurring themes that you will see, and the stories of all of the prophets of Allah is that the most

00:07:32--> 00:07:41

common story that is mentioned is the story of Musa alayhis salam. It is the one that is most frequently repeated over and over again.

00:07:42--> 00:07:48

So he says that this is the angel, the same angel that came to the Prophet Mousavi, his Salatu was Salam.

00:07:50--> 00:08:34

And then he says to him, what have I been awful says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if only I were younger in age and stronger in body, that I could help you when a time came upon you that your people would exile you they would expel you from Makkah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, our modiji your home? Will they expel me? My people, my family, these are my tribes, people, my kings, people, my cousins, my relatives, my blood, will they expand me for my own home from my own city for my own land? And so what have I been known for said to him, no one has ever come before you with that which you have come with, except that his people try to exile him.

00:08:35--> 00:08:50

They try to expel him from the land. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the left and this is the end of the hadith of our inshallah the Allahu Akbar even know for very shortly after this he would pass away he would die.

00:08:51--> 00:09:28

This incident is the beginning of the revelation. how Allah subhanho wa Taala began the revelation with this commandment to read and to seek knowledge. And as we said, primarily to seek knowledge of what to seek knowledge of your Lord. The crop is me Robic read in the name of your Lord, seek knowledge of your religion and your Lord and Islam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has now received revelation for the first time, because it is such an amazing experience. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was unable to understand and appreciate all of it in its entirety.

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

After this took place, this revelation came for a number of days revelation ceased, and in the books of sirach. This is known as for total working, there was a pause in Revelation, Revelation ceased. So Jubilee ran he said, I'm gonna come back to him the next day, or the third day or the fourth day, there was now a gap in Revelation. and email me bro hotjar Rahim Allah tala. He says the one of the wisdoms for the sun Alonzo john knows best

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

But perhaps one of the wisdoms for this this gap and pausing revelation, so that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would be able to regain his confidence after that experience when he was afraid and he experienced all of those emotions perhaps the prophet or son would be allowed to settle down again. Because had Jimmy early Sir, I'm come to him that same evening again, or the next morning, then again the props are solemn would have felt the same type of emotions would have been difficult for him to bear because this is a new experience for him. And as a large soldier 1000s in the Koran, the revelation upon the prophets of Allah is a heavy thing. It is difficult, and that's

00:10:42--> 00:11:23

why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the companion say that sometimes on a cold day, on a cold winter's day, when revelation would come upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would begin to sweat. And sometimes if he was riding his animal, his camel or his donkey and revelation came upon him, the weight would be so great that the animal would have to sit down, wouldn't be able to stand and carry the load or continue to walk. And on one occasion, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting and part of his leg was on the leg of one of the companions. His leg was slightly over the leg of one of his companions leaning on him, and revelation came upon him. The

00:11:23--> 00:12:04

companion says that I felt such a weight upon my leg, that I thought that he would break the bone would snap, because as a large surgeon says in Sanofi, Arnica, Onan Zabiullah, we will throw upon you we will place upon you a heavy word, Revelation or something, which was heavy meaning with experience is not something which is normal. It is something which is difficult, hard to bear. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given this pause in Revelation, there are two or three poses that took place like this in the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is the first pause. And this pause took place.

00:12:05--> 00:12:40

So that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could settle down and again, he could go back to his normal self. And also perhaps one of the reasons is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would understand the beauty of what he had just experienced. The beauty of receiving revelation of hearing the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala have been given the Quran and when he understood and appreciated the beauty, he would long and yearn for more of it, he would want more to come to him. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given a pause in Revelation.

00:12:41--> 00:13:23

How long was that pause there is no authentic narration that mentions this and the spoilers of Syrah and history differ. They differ from 10 to 15 days, all the way up to two years or three years. Some of the Spanish said three years no more revelation came. However, that opinion seems to be weak and incorrect. Because once revelation began, there wasn't such a long pause between the revelation of the arm, but rather what seems most likely, and alonza, which knows best is that there was a pause for a number of days, perhaps 10 days, 15 days, 20 days, for a number of days, there was no revelation enough so that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would settle down in his emotions

00:13:23--> 00:14:09

that experience that that are taking place he would comprehend it and understand it. And his longing and yearning for the book of Allah subhanaw taala for the revelation of the Quran, would return to him he would want to see this pose took place for a number of days. And then one day and this hadith is also in Soham Bihari on the authority of jabil ignore Abdullah rhodiola one, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Bina and um. She in submitted to SOTA minister. I was walking one day when I heard a sound or a voice call me from above from the sky for a fact to bursary for either monocular vija journey behera so I raised my eyes I raised my head to see who was calling me from

00:14:09--> 00:14:52

above. And I saw the same angel that I saw in the cave of Hira journalisten Allah corsi in Venice summer he will ARP and this angel sitting upon the throne, between the heavens and the earth, and this is one of the times of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Jubilee Valley, his Salaam on his original form, in his original form of following Jubilee Valley, his sermon come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would come in the form of a man, you will take the form of a man, or he would come in a different form, rarely, only on a handful of occasions, probably in the whole lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the 23 years of profit on the Jubilee rally. He said I'm

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

come in his original form, because his original form was so great and so vast that a single wing from the men

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

wings that he had that Allah has given him, a single wing would cover between the heavens and the earth, they would cover the horizon. But on this occasion he saw him sitting on a throne that covered the horizon between the heavens and the earth. So the professor solemn said, so I became afraid. Again, he sees him, he becomes afraid in another generation. I think it is also a hand body. He said, I became afraid and I fell upon my knees. I found down because of the Oh, how awesome this site was how amazing the site was, he found down. He then left and he rushed back home to his wife Khadija rhodiola iguana. And he said to her, some Milani is a Milani or in some narrations death

00:15:45--> 00:16:26

Irani which means Cover me and velop me, right, Place a sheet over me cover me completely. So sometimes, for example, when you're scared, or you go through an emotion another thing that this happened with the processor number, perhaps sometimes, in order to appreciate the meaning of the statement, sometimes when you go through a near death or terrifying experience, irrespective of the weather, you begin to shake and shiver. So natural reaction because of the adrenaline that has built up in your body, and the way that you're experiencing this emotion, you begin to have the shivers. And so the profits are seldom seems like he was also afraid, and he wanted to be covered. So he was

00:16:26--> 00:16:40

covered. It is after this that this incident took place on a large syllogism revealed to him the next number of verses in the Quran, and they are the first of the first five verses of surah Truman death.

00:16:42--> 00:16:45

Now was an interesting point. Just to cite point out

00:16:46--> 00:17:28

the squatters when they came to study the banana from the sciences of the UN and some of the scholars attempted to understand the chronological order of the revelation of the Quran. The Quran as we have it today, starting from Fatiha ending with surah to Nasser is not the chronological order of revelation. Because sort of line up as you know, Accra is in the last part of the Quran, even though it was the first surah of the Quran to be revealed. The Quran is not in chronological order. Because the owner is not meant to be chronological. It is not meant to have that order. And a large soldier didn't reveal it in a way that is chronological. The Quran is unlike any other book.

00:17:28--> 00:18:08

However, one of the things that some of the scholars attempted to do was to see if they could ascertain the chronological order of the revelation of verses. There is no authentic Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that mentions this no arm authentic statement from any of the companions of the laquan home, or any of the early scholars of Islam that mentions the chronological order of every single surah of the Quran. But some scholars attempted it and the fact that you don't have a Hadith, or a statement of the companions are one of the earliest scholars of Islam shows that it is not something integral to our religion, or extremely important. But some scholars attempted

00:18:08--> 00:18:46

this. And because there is no authentic narration, there is a difference of opinion that occurs in this issue. Some of the scholars of the vast majority of the scholars agree that sort of line up was the first sort of to be revealed a crab is murabbi color, the harder but not the whole, sort of just the first five verses. And that's also one of the things that we have to understand about the Quran and its revelation that allow wouldn't reveal Searles in its entirety completely, and then move on to the following song. No, you will have verses from Sora. And then verses from Surah muda, third and verses from Surah to Panam, then Allah goes back to Sora to line up, then he goes on to a

00:18:46--> 00:19:19

different surah sometimes Allah would reveal the whole surah in its entirety. But those are normally the very, very small sources that we find at the end of the quarter, and sometimes not even all of them. But generally speaking verses are revealed at a time, and they belong in different souls. And that's why again, the Quran is unique in the way that it was revealed, because the Quran was often revealed to reflect the situation of the people at that time, what they needed and the commandments that they needed and situations as and when they will arise.

00:19:20--> 00:19:46

So what was the second revelation of the surah Tanakh. This is an issue of difference of opinion amongst the scholars. Some of them said that it is suited to madatha and this seems to be the majority opinion that it is sort of that fear, or the sense that it is sort of to column the first few verses of surah poem, which is known well upon me one milestone that surah and others said yet that it was surah to Muslim men.

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

Those who said the total MacArthur came second, they said the Salton poem came third. Those who said that subroto poem came second they said the sort of majestic came third. So the difference is basically in which one came second author

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

But they were more or less all of them at the beginning of Revelation. These were early soldiers that were being revealed. It seems an alarm soldier knows best. And again, there is no authentic hadith as I mentioned. But it seems from the context of the verses and the context of the highly threatened region to you, and say hello Buhari, that the second revelation was sort of madatha that after this pause in Revelation after the first few verses of a crown revealed a larger version reveal these verses, and this is also based upon the same narration that I mentioned of Jabara the Allahu Bihari when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came home to Khadija about the Allah one

00:20:41--> 00:21:31

and he said to her, the theme oni which means Cover me, so Allah subhana wa tada using that same root word, that same verb, he says in Surah muda fil a yo hell madatha. The fear only modest fear comes from the same root word. You're a u haul madatha which basically means all you who has been covered completely, or you who has been wrapped in garments or your was been enveloped in sheets. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being addressed by Allah is the virgin Moroni addressed in general terms, but addressed specifically in the way that he is dressed in the situation that he is in in the way that he is covering himself. So we're so Virgil addresses the profits on the lawn

00:21:31--> 00:22:13

while he will sell them directly. These five verses now begin the second stage of the Syrah and the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is the years of the period of what is known as the hidden Dawa. That was to say, we're, where the profits on the low where are they he will sell them on secretly hidden. He would go to people just an individual one on one one to one basis, and he would invite them to Islam. People who are close to him, family members, close friends, people that are interested, just invite them to Islam, the general population of Mecca, the general Quraysh they don't know about Islam. They don't know about the Quran. They don't know that

00:22:13--> 00:22:35

this man is claiming to be a prophet of Allah. They don't know. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is approaching people individually and accepting ordering or asking them we're inviting them rather to accept Islam. That stage begins with these verses. Allah subhanho wa Taala when we look and analyze these verses a large surgeon says yeah

00:22:37--> 00:22:59

yeah a yoga is a call. It means Oh the one who and normally in the Arabic language when you want to call someone just like in English, you use the word Oh, are you oh my father or my son or my friend or Akhmad? Oh, Abdullah. Likewise in Arabic you use the word Yeah. Yeah, means to call someone.

00:23:00--> 00:23:43

Normally when you call someone, there is sometimes depending upon who you are calling and the way that you call them in the Arabic language. And this is from the eloquence of the Arabic language and its beauty and its poetic nature. There is also within their implied a certain type of respect, or a certain type of emotion. For example, when Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, are you gonna be Oh prophet? Yeah, Are you hot Rasul? Oh, messenger, it is a call to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but this type of call because of the title that is being used, and given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It also denotes respect.

00:23:44--> 00:24:26

So for example, you say, all messenger, or prophet, or we would say perhaps all leader, OSHA, it's not just that you're calling someone, but there is an element of respect in the way that you're calling them as well and in the title that you're using. So yeah, this word all depending upon what will come after it and the title that you use, it will also denote a certain type of reverence or lack of reverence, as may be the case. For example, if as Allah mentions in the Quran, when they used to want to humiliate or speak down or look down upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They would say, you're a you're hella the, you know, Xena, Ali, heavy crew in the collage known, or

00:24:26--> 00:24:59

the one who claims that revelation has come upon him, you are crazy. So the way that they using the word oh here isn't to reveal is not to respect but it is to belittle and demean. Likewise, in the Arabic language. For example, if you were to say, oh, and you were to say, Your, your bonia, or my dear father, or my dear son, now you're denoting a level of closeness to a level of relationship, a level of love, and care and kindness and mercy that exists between you and the one that you're calling

00:25:00--> 00:25:18

Why am I telling you all of this? It's not just to give you an Arabic lesson. It is to tell you and show you how when alarm so when Jill for the first time, addresses the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam directly, there is a certain way that he does this. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you

00:25:20--> 00:26:09

are the one who is wrapped in garments and sheets, they are here, because it is addressing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, meaning a single person. And because it is referring to him as being someone who is close to Allah subhanho wa Taala because there is no level or no one in this life that is closer on the highest station to a large the Magellan His Prophet, and his messengers. When it is done in this context, it is the utmost of love, and respect and kindness and gentleness that a large region is using. So when a large that were gentle for the first time that he speaks to the proper centimeters and say, yeah, Mohammed doesn't say, oh prophet doesn't say, oh messenger.

00:26:10--> 00:26:54

Even though all of these are correct, all of them fit the profit or seldom. But because Allah is using the situation, the clothes that he is wearing, the way that he is sitting, the way that he is feeling, after having seen Jubilee, the his Salaam, the fact that he calls him out, using those exact descriptions, shows that Allah subhana wa Taala cares to him, in the most advanced of ways, when someone is extremely close to you. You don't just call them by their name, sometimes you call them by something which is even more affectionate in a way that is even closer to you. And so for example, the profits on the long run he will sell them will do something similar sometimes with some

00:26:54--> 00:27:33

of his companions. One day when he came to the masjid and he saw heard about the Allah one sleeping on the floor of the masjid. And the floor was dusty was son, that's the floor that they used to have of the masjid. And you woke up and he had dust all over him. He said to him, boom, you're about to rob Stan or father of the dust. Right? And why is he calling him father of the dust His name is early. His son's name is Hassan. He could have said oh Father of his son. He's calling him because he wants to show how close your loved one is to him. He's actually using the way that he looks the situation on its own the way that he's dressed. The way that he he is when he wakes up to show how

00:27:33--> 00:28:16

close he is to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Likewise, for example, with above oredo the Allah one, his name was um, the man, when the prodigal son would see him carrying kittens. So often he called him your Abba hora or father of the kittens, because that's the situation that he's in to show that the processor is paying attention to him. He's not just looking up the rock, man, this man, he's paying attention and he realizes what he's doing. He pays attention and care to what he's carrying the way that he's walking the way that he's dressing. The processor notices him. And when there is someone that you respect and you love and they notice you to a very minute detail, it is

00:28:16--> 00:28:58

something which shows that that person also respects you and loves you in return. Right? And so it is a it is a way of showing affection. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, for example. So one day for the for the long run, sleeping, he was extremely tired. So he said to him, come here, no man stand, or sleepyhead. Right, his name is on sleepyhead His name is Eva, but he can see that he's so tired. So the processor wants to show him that he simplifies. If he knows that he's tired, he knows the way he lives he's feeling so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam uses that term alonza which will be for all of this uses this in the Quran. The professor Lim is going through a stage now where

00:28:58--> 00:29:37

he will have to call the whole of the world to Islam. This is the burden that he has to bear a responsibility upon his shoulders, and he will face many obstacles and challenges and difficulties in this path. On Mars, the will jump to show that he cares about the Prophet Solomon loves him and his affection and gentle towards him and has mercy upon him. And that allows so much and will never forsake Him. He doesn't just call him by his name or by his title, but rather Allah azza wa jal is saying to him that I see you and I know you and I understand what you're experiencing. So all you who has wrapped himself in sheets, you're a u haul model.

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

Now that Allah subhanho wa Taala has said this, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understands this, and this is by the way, one of the benefits of contemplating the Quran, not just reading the Quran, not just reading the translation of the meanings of the Quran, but understanding why Allah azza wa jal or trying to understand rather, why Allah subhanaw taala has used

00:30:00--> 00:30:46

certain times in certain places at certain times, now that a lot is eligible does this he says to him, comfort and fear? Are you the one who is wrapped in sheets, don't be afraid of what you just saw. Don't be afraid of juby Knowledge Center. Don't be afraid of this revelation of the Quran berada stand and warn the people. And Allah subhanaw taala commands him to stand, not literally because he should stand because he was sitting down at a time when he was lying down and that he should stand up. But come stand in the Arabic language alma vishay means that to begin something is used to begin something. Just like in English, we say that someone started walking mean that he

00:30:46--> 00:31:34

started on a project. He continued on a project. So likewise, Allah subhanaw taala is saying to him stand meaning don't just stand literally, but start your project start your mission. What is the mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam annville warn the people stand and warn the people. Don't be afraid large soldier is revealed. Allah subhanaw taala will not forsake you. Allah azza wa jal will protect you with His divine protection and Allah azza wa jal will care for you with His Divine care. So rather stand and begin with your mission. What is that mission are the first and most basic elementary level it is to call the people to the towhead of Allah subhana wa tada to call

00:31:34--> 00:32:18

them to Islam, to make clear to them that they should worship Allah azza wa jal alone, and leave all of these false gods and idols that they worship besides Allah subhanho wa Taala and Arabic language when he says comfort unveil. A means stand and worn in bound means to one, right? But before you one, you must tell people what you're warning them about. You can't for example, say to them, you're going to fail, that's a warning what you're going to fail unless that person understands beforehand, that if they don't study they will fail. Because otherwise the sentence is incomplete. The concept is incomplete. So Allah subhanaw taala says to him over understand and more than one them about what

00:32:19--> 00:33:00

about the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. About your monthly ama, about how large though agenda will hold them to account how if they don't believe in a law than more than that the Abode will be the fire of hell. But implicit within that statement, an alarm soldier knows best is a commandment that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he stands, the first thing that he must do, as he must call those people to Islam, make clear to them though heat. And then if they don't accept ODF, at the same time as telling them that they should accept the heat, he should warn them of the consequences of what will take place if they don't. And these two elements are ever

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

present in the stories of all of the prophets of Allah, that on the one hand, they would give glad tidings, they would be more machining, they would give good news of those people who believe and follow a law and what their reward will be on the Day of Judgment. And at the same time, they would be Warner's they would warn their people, they would admonish them, they will tell them to be afraid of the punishment of a large soldier, and what would take place if they disbelieved. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells him to begin to begin this mission of Islam and it is from this and this is why I said that these verses begin that phase of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:33:41--> 00:34:25

which is known as the hidden years or the hidden phase of Dawa, where the prophet SAW Selim now was told that he must start to preach, it is not just sufficient that he alone believes in Allah alone, or that he alone accepts Islam, but he must go and start to preach. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen to stand and to one. And then he says, comfort and your wardrobe back half a cab bill, and your Lord, should you glorify and magnify your Lord. Normally when we speak in English, or even in Arabic, if you were to frame the sentence, you would say glorify your Lord. You wouldn't say your Lord glorify, right? strong way of framing the sentence. But Allah subhanaw taala often in the

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

Quran, he changes the order and this is from the eloquence of the Quran, but it actually doesn't sound out of place. And that is to show where the emphasis should be placed. The emphasis should be upon Allah subhanho wa Taala because the Arabs in Quraysh used to glorify, they will glorify the idols they will glorify lat and Rosa and monart and hubel and all of those various idols and constantly would worship they would praise them and they will glorify them, and they would revere them and respect them and fear them and so on and so forth. So large, so just to show that this is now a

00:35:00--> 00:35:47

new chapter. This is a different religion. Allah subhanho wa Taala begins by his own self, while Rebecca Campbell and notice that Allah is the will says again here and your Lord, just as in Surah to the hand up which was the first revelation Allah said weed in the name of your Lord. So again Allah subhanho wa Taala says Tim work better for Kabir and your Lord, begin to glorify, glorify Allah azza wa jal magnify Allah subhanho wa Taala praise Allah subhanho wa Taala and so Allah azza wa jal is commanding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to glorify Allah subhanho wa Taala. Some of the scholars said that this verse refers to internal purification, that when you cleanse

00:35:47--> 00:36:29

your heart of shock, and disbelief, and worshiping other than Allah subhanho wa Taala and you replace it with glorifying Allah and praising him. It is an internal type of purification, as a large soldier says about the disbelievers. Yeah, you are living in armano enamel machining corner nurtures are you who believe the disbelievers are impure? Does it mean that they literally physically impure, it means that there are beliefs or beliefs of impurity? Because then you worship others? besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. The opposite is taking place here that when you worship Allah alone, you cleanse yourself internally, you purify yourself internally. Some of the scholars

00:36:29--> 00:37:02

for this reason they said that this was an indication that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Once he has cleansed himself, internally, he should begin to pray to Allah subhana wa Tada. You should begin to worship Allah azza wa jal, because that is one of the necessities, necessities of internal purification. When you purify yourself and you replace it with the love of Allah azza wa jal and the fear of Allah subhanaw taala and the trust of Allah subhanho wa Taala then by necessity, it must lead you to worshiping Allah azza wa jal as well.

00:37:03--> 00:37:52

Allah subhana wa Taala then says with Dr. Baca, Fatah here, and as for your clothes, then purify them. As for your clones, then purify them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being told in both of these verses were up better for Kabir was here better Fatah here. glorify your Lord and purify your clothes. Both of them have been told that despite whatever situation you may be in, whatever circumstances you may find yourself in, always do these two things. cleanse yourself internally and cleanse yourself externally. purify your inner self, and purify your body as well. purify your heart and purify your outer limbs and your clothes as well purify yourself. And this is

00:37:52--> 00:38:34

as we know, within our religion that the purification and being pure, it is something which aligns with your loves. And it is something which is an integral part of our religion and that purification begins from the heart. As the Prophet told us and Allahu alayhi wa sallam in nephrologists at the Buddha in Asana had Solihull Jesucristo, while the faster the faster than just a Dooku. Look, Allah He is, indeed within the body, there is a morsel of flesh, if it is correct and good, the whole body will become good. And if it is evil than the body will become evil. Indeed it is the heart. And so once the will is turning that he must do both internal worship, external worship, internal

00:38:34--> 00:39:14

purification, external purification. Therefore, even from these beginning verses, people who often come with the excuse that I don't need to pray over example, I don't need to dress like a Muslim or behave like a Muslim or look look like you're Muslim, or I don't need to wear a scarf or have a beard and so on and so forth. Because Islam is in my heart, and that is sufficient. That is where Islam really comes from. Even from the beginning of Revelation, Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam that it is not sufficient that he can only concentrate on one or the other. But from the very beginning of the Quran, and this is the second revelation as we said

00:39:14--> 00:39:59

that the bottle Salim received, and it is the beginning of his journey of Dawa now he must actually go and call others to Islam. In order for him to do this, he must do both. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala system in the fifth verse, what would jeiza Fanjul and stay away from evil, stay away from punishment stay away from idol worship, or Rogers in Arabic language in the Quran. There are two ways that it is recited. We're widjaja and what ridges are one of them means stay away from idols. And that is what richer and more rich the mean stay away from everything which will incur upon you the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala and both of those meanings are correct. Both of them you

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

Don't one of them, neither of them contradict the other, so you can use both of them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being told to stay away from everything which will incur the Wrath of Allah, basically sin. And in particular, the greatest of those sins is a sham. Stay away from everything which is even stay away from everything which is considered to be disobedience from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now when you look at these five verses, you find that many of the most basic and fundamental tenants of Islam are contained within them. From the beginning of Islam, Allah azza wa jal is turning him on for understand and warn the people. What is you warning them about? What is he

00:40:42--> 00:41:24

speaking about the heat, that is the basis of religion, work better for kapiel and glorify your Lord, meaning you have to physically worship Allah subhanho wa Taala you must worship your Lord. And that worship means that you must internally within your heart, have the love of Allah azza wa jal, and his fear and his trust and reliance and so on and so forth with Dr. Baca, Fatah here, and then purify your close, just as you have that internal purification, that internal love of Allah subhanho wa Taala, those internal acts of worship that acts of worship of the heart, then likewise, externally, you must also worship Allah azza wa jal, you must also purify yourself. And one, once

00:41:24--> 00:42:08

you have done this, then stay away from evil. And that is Islam. Islam is that you have to hear that you obey the commandments of Allah, that you worship Allah, and that you stay away from the Haram. That is Islam. That is in a nutshell, what Islam is. At the same time, when you look at these five verses, you also realize and see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been prepared for his journey and mission, Laura zildjian is preparing him by turning him in five, very beautiful, very eloquent, very brief and concise, versus yet comprehensive in their meaning, the five things or the four things rather after he calls him, your, your mother, Phil, the four things that he must

00:42:08--> 00:42:23

concentrate on, these are the things or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which if you concentrate on and you pay attention to, they will help you in your mission, they will help you achieve your goal. They will help you do this and a larger vision in many ways,

00:42:24--> 00:42:51

is turning the profits on Allahu alayhi wa sallam, what he means to do, personally for himself, because these five verses addressing directly and yes, even though by extension, they apply to all of us, first and foremost, they addressed the prophets of Allah while he will send them. So he's being told what to do, in order to come closer to Allah, and be able to bear this responsibility which is being a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:42:52--> 00:43:32

The prophets or cinemas given these five verses, and so he began to go and call people to Islam. And he started with the people of his own household and his family. He started with his wife Khadija rhodiola one her and there is a difference of opinion amongst the scholars of Islam, the scholars of Sierra, as to who was the first to became Muslim. And one of the ways some of the scholars reconcile between these different opinions is that they said that the first woman to become Islam to become Muslim, was the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Khadija, probably Allah and the prophet SAW Selim also called his best friend, Abubakar rhodiola. One and he also became a Muslim.

00:43:32--> 00:44:11

And so the scholar said that he was the first man to become Islam. Early even if you thought he brought the Allahu anhu was a young boy at the age also became Muslim. And so the prophets of Salaam accepted his Islam and he became the first young man of the first boy to accept Islam. They didn't know how they thought on the long run her who was the adopted son, the freed slave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he also accepted Islam. And so he said that he was the first free slave to accept Islam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began with these people at the same time the daughters of the prophet SAW Selim obviously being within his household and in his home, they

00:44:11--> 00:44:55

also became Muslims. So the prophets Allah when Allah he was selling his preaching Islam to these people who are closest to him, and it was hidden in the sense that is one to one is not a public teaching or a public invitation to Islam. It is private, to those people that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was closest to and when those people accepted Islam then by extension they went on to call other people to Islam. So for example, abubaker the Allah one, he went on and he called or semana de Allah one and a lot of money been off, and sadly manabi overpass and Valhalla, the Allah one, liberal one, and all of these companions will lead to make up the 10 who are promised Paradise

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So book rhodiola one calls them to establish

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

Well, then likewise abora VEDA abran genre about the Allahu unsalaried immunization and outcome outcome, a number of people begin to accept Islam but again all of this is hidden. All of this is one to one private Dawa, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is given by the stage, about 30 or 40 people become Muslim, just in this way. 30 or 40 people accept Islam and they become Muslim. And this then begins the journey of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam giving Dawa and with that inshallah we come to the end of this lecture inshallah, in the next lecture we're going to look at is how Allah subhana wa Taala prepares the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for this

00:45:44--> 00:46:06

journey, for this initial challenge, and then also for the next challenge, which will be giving public Dawa which is the next phase of the Prophet tour of the Prophet solemn, how did he prepare him how to love through the Quran through the revelation prepare the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for this so with that inshallah we will conclude to that will now here on Salaam and

00:46:07--> 00:46:11

early he was on the edge Marine, Saira Malik Muhammad Allah He will Baraka

00:46:42--> 00:46:43
