Assalamu alaikum peace,
focus on your host machine. Today we have 55th

Today's topic Can I help you very quickly

And we discussed also some of the variations in the ports, which are very significant variation basically,

From the very beginning, she took the role of soothing encouragement is
aiming for the feeling
of being the first to accept Islam. In fact, the first one to accept this, as the Prophet the Prophet, revelation was not an illusion. So it has this touching

He says that she will.
Because he was a cousin of Khadija, because he was an Arab who embraced Christianity to become Christian

manuals, revelation to Moses, indeed, he is the prophet of this
dispute and at this time, tell him to rest assured
and shooting from, from the profits, About what?
To shoot and return back to the club, because as we mentioned before, he used to consecrate a certain number of days
for meditations and just because of that experience, so he was assured that you should not feel should be back to complete the
it was discussed, and also that, Upon finishing this consecrated days of worship and meditation in the cave,
he comes back,

to me, what did you see? And he

have his head. And then the Prophet turns home. This very similar generation in Buhari, so that adds that.
that's my people
that you came with that is with this revelation of teaching, religious teaching, except that
was shown to him.
Also to the simulation, if you said that very shortly after that casual, quick meeting between the Prophet America
evolution seized for a certain period of time before we can come to the perfect
respect to the social revolution
There have been a wide range of estimates about that period. various reports have to be given
a few days, and the maximum was three years.
And that estimate of three years sounds quite unreasonable. That's why
he gives more credence to the notion
that it was only for six months. Other scholars have called could be estimated actually to be a few weeks, maybe a couple of weeks.
I would say that it seems to be more reasonable to assume that it was perhaps in the weeks or at most
number of years. In fact, when I checked the narration and authentic preference, I found that while it does not specify the period, but the context as interpreted does not seem to indicate that this period of secession of revelation was a very long period of time, perhaps a few weeks or a few months, would have been an estimate, as far as how the revolution resumed again, after the spirit of secession.
This has also been mentioned in the news. But basically,
it says that,
according to the Hadees, narrated by
the prophet was describing the period of suspicion, he said, when I was working, I heard a voice from heavens. So I raised my hands to see
the angel who came to me
sitting on a throne of church, in the horizon between heavens and as I ran away from being out of
I said to my family, cover me up. They did. They
And let me find the
government free from Steam and abomination. In fact, this is part of the crime today, which is chapter number 74, verses one through five. This passage according to the signifiers, the purification inside the government in Arabic is used actually as a symbol of the person, which refers to purification inside out for someone who's about to play an important role model
This issue also has been discussed. Some scholars, for example,
says that this period, where revelation stopped after the mission, for sexual
acts, is the most eloquent response to anyone who tries to explain the phenomenon of revelation to the Prophet as a source of psychological phenomena
that took place after the Prophet is something that could have just resulted from meditation, meditation, chose that it wasn't, because of course, is the source of that revelation was internal, within from within the Prophet himself, there will be no reason
for second period, and the prophet will be eager for the assumption, that revelation, there's no reason for that disease. So that seems to indicate
that the profit just feels from outside of himself. Another possible wisdom, as a presenter, for example, explains is that this period of cessation
should have saved also by preparing the profits
for further revelation to make you eager, and looking forward for the return on that engine of Revelation, and as such, it will give you perseverance and perseverance when
he was supposed
just just talk to the Prophet without being sued by the prophet,
communicate message, okay.
If the Prophet
he'd have the reason for uncertainty, because it would be rather difficult to tell whether that voice that he had was indeed, an agent,
of an evil spirit of Gemini or some other creature. So the dependence on voice or sound, could have led to this kind of questions in the mind of the Prophet. And to prove that this could be a third use that in the first encounter that he described, even though the Prophet said,
physically, he was still
terrorized is very afraid, he was wondering if what happened to him was just a touch of evil spirits or whatnot. Obviously, the situation could have been much worse, if it was on sound that you've heard the voice without danger of evolution. In addition to this, also, the fact that he heard a voice or if he had heard voice, for example, individually, or something,
also with us as to whether these voices are from outside an imagination, something from himself,
maybe from subconscious. So this could be another problem that may have a
festival and this is indeed, a divine revelation, and just in a reflection.
The fact also that God
does not simply appear to the Prophet but also came to him
or herself, in itself. It texts that we believe
that what the prophet heard was imagination, because you can't imagine and
it's an outside force
on the side, so that would preclude any notion of imagination.
And other hand you could also say that, from that initial encounter, it may get the Prophet used to
The voice of Gabrielle, and as such,
as close to campus over here to him indicates, after that keeps emphasizing the fact that that dimension is not within the private option dictated to him
is chosen to be the message of the prophet of God.
As opposed to being afraid that this is a very good question. And in fact, it serves as one of the most important responses to some of the series, at least by some retests.
Assume that password was a sort of plan, or just a feeling or desire or aspiration,
over the period of time. And the question actually isn't a simple response to that. Because if it was true, that
it wasn't just hoped or thought
that you'd be a perfect
outcome from the kid.
in fact, you should come down jubilant and happy that after all, you know, his hopes, aspirations and desires became true, revelation came to us can be happy. But that is not the case.
We cannot assume by any means
that you might have faked
a sense of terror and information about him, shows that he was not a person who speaks his mind very clearly he did not have an attitude of pretense, yes. On the other hand,
him for 15 years before that first revelation came to Scotland, as to whether we will be taking
a person who can be accused of faking
such then we can only conclude that the revelation that the Prophet received
a sort of gradual enlightenment, or Maxim,
that it's a source of ideas that were cooking
in his mind,
because this seems to be inconsistent with the action that was shown upon receipt and the vision. And this is just a method of magic behind that scripture. And speaking of this kind of understanding is consistent
with several passages in the Quran, that clearly indicates the deliberation was not something
that you could share with us.
Okay, so if you
see a big gaps that you can

Okay. And he was not able to recite it before this, that's what keeps you real? Are you able to transcribe it

actual product of the thinking, and ideas of the profit
of today's program is touching the question of Muhammad surpassingly.
First of all,
traditionally hesitant to accept the
origin of the revelation that he or she received.
On this one, it's
very strange. For example, if a writer
rejects the whole notion of divine revelation, if he, for example, is an atheist, or someone who believes
for those people that anything
which is outside the analysis
of traditional tools of science, is something that must be dismissed as existent.
If this are consistent, we would expect them to reject all kinds of revelation so they reject revelation to
Jesus, Abraham, all the prophets, Moses, and Revelation, which
is when atheists like that many have not found it very strange given them.
But the strange thing is that you have drivers that you mentioned, who are hesitant or
the divine origin of the revelation that you will
include among themselves people who add on interests or missions and some are at least professed believers in Judaism or Christianity.
to accept the biblical notion that God spoke to the prophets, Abraham and others, before it accepted to
believe that Moses received the revelation from God and
some of them are Christians, for example, find it acceptable to say that God spoke through Jesus, peace be upon him. And if this nations are accepted as supernatural or metaphysical, religious truths, which I have no dispute with that, that's fine. But the problem is that when it comes to Islam, and when it comes to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, we find that the opposite is true, we feel that there is no effort that is spirit by some of the shapers to delay and reject that
was also the evolution of similar nature emanating from the same source that God revealed the same books to the previous prophets or spoke to the various prophets in the past.
That appears to be a rather strange, inconsistency, inconsistency that reflects the long standing bias, directed at the rejection of any legitimacy of the prophethood of Muhammad. And as such
as the scene and fundament of all of the prophets, the prophets in history, whose message has been explicitly and repeatedly indicated that it is directed to the entire mankind not to particular
This is also a source of bias, which is aimed at the denial of the importance of the Quran as the only revealed scripture in the history of mankind,
which was preserved fully intact. And we have it today exactly as it was given by the prophet and as such, it combines the elements of authority and authenticity. Unfortunately, this long standing biases have been enhanced history, the history of military and political conflicts between different members of the human family. And that means each other difficult to examine the claim that it was indeed a prophet, preceding divine revelation, to examine that in a more rational, and objectively and to see what
happened to other prophets in the past. The average Western view the news about Islam, basically, the writings of outsiders, most of whom are critics, and very few readers have direct access to the Quran to examine it for themselves. The translations in English are available but not as accessible as other differences. And so I think the issue is very significant. Perhaps it's an issue that has to be more critical.
