00:00:46 --> 00:00:50

In last week's class, we

00:00:51 --> 00:00:52

spoke about

00:00:53 --> 00:00:59

how there were certain individuals in that society

00:01:01 --> 00:01:02

in Arabia,

00:01:03 --> 00:01:09

who were still upon to heed and upon the fitrah

00:01:12 --> 00:01:17

this is all before the coming of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, before he becomes a prophet and a messenger.

00:01:19 --> 00:01:23

So we learned how these individuals existed. They were

00:01:26 --> 00:01:28

a few in number.

00:01:30 --> 00:01:34

And so they recognized Allah's sole right, to be worshipped.

00:01:35 --> 00:01:37

And they shunned idol worship,

00:01:38 --> 00:01:44

and other evils that were present and prevalent in that society

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

of Elijah Helia.

00:01:47 --> 00:01:51

However, they didn't know how to go about worshiping Allah.

00:01:53 --> 00:01:57

And they wished they had wished that they had a guide,

00:01:58 --> 00:02:02

a prophet, a messenger, who they could follow.

00:02:04 --> 00:02:09

And so we looked at some of these individuals like ceremonial Pharisee, or the long run.

00:02:11 --> 00:02:18

And so, these people, some of them, they had some knowledge that a prophet was soon to come.

00:02:20 --> 00:02:23

And as we learned from the story of cinema and rhodiola, who

00:02:24 --> 00:02:27

that this is exactly what led him.

00:02:28 --> 00:02:31

This is what led him to arrive eventually in El Medina.

00:02:33 --> 00:02:55

Now before getting into the next phase of the Syrah in the very beginning, we mentioned that there are generally three stages of studying this era, three different stages. The first stage is pre prophethood, from the birth even before the birth of the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam, all the way until the age of 40.

00:02:57 --> 00:03:00

This is the first stage and we've covered pretty much of it.

00:03:02 --> 00:03:05

The second stage is the makin stage,

00:03:06 --> 00:03:31

which is for 13 years. And then the third stage is the the stage after the Hijra before getting into the next phase of the Sierra, which is the beginning of the prophethood it would be good to look at some of the prophecies and the cloud tidings what do we mean by a prophecy? What is meant by

00:03:32 --> 00:03:33

a prophecy?

00:03:37 --> 00:03:38

Yeah, what does a prophecy mean?

00:03:40 --> 00:03:41

I'm not really sure

00:03:46 --> 00:03:46

anyone else

00:03:48 --> 00:03:50

what do we mean when we say prophecy?

00:03:53 --> 00:03:54


00:03:55 --> 00:03:58

so a prophecy is a prediction

00:04:02 --> 00:04:06

something that was told that would happen in the future.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:19

And so Allah told the prophets and the messengers of the coming of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that there will come a prophet, at the end of

00:04:20 --> 00:04:24

at the end of the, the line of the prophets,

00:04:26 --> 00:04:27

he will have certain descriptions

00:04:30 --> 00:04:36

and these descriptions were shared through the prophets and the miseries. So, these we can also call glad tidings.

00:04:41 --> 00:04:43

And all of these prophecies

00:04:44 --> 00:04:45

mentioning that a prophet will come.

00:04:48 --> 00:04:50

They are basically mentioning

00:04:51 --> 00:04:54

that Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will come

00:04:56 --> 00:04:59

the purpose of of studying these prophecies looking at these Prof.

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


00:05:01 --> 00:05:02

and these predictions

00:05:04 --> 00:05:08

is so that we can see how Allah had paved the way

00:05:09 --> 00:05:17

for the people to receive the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once he became a prophet and a messenger as we will see tonight inshallah.

00:05:20 --> 00:05:24

So generally, when it comes to the prophecies

00:05:25 --> 00:05:27

that a prophet is about to come,

00:05:29 --> 00:05:31

we have three different

00:05:32 --> 00:05:34

sources we could say

00:05:38 --> 00:05:39

of these prophecies.

00:05:40 --> 00:05:42

The first source is obviously the Quran.

00:05:45 --> 00:05:48

So, in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us

00:05:51 --> 00:05:53

that different prophets mentioned

00:05:54 --> 00:06:03

about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, for example, Ibrahim alayhis salam, after he built the kava with his son is married.

00:06:05 --> 00:06:09

He may do and as Allah mentions in Surah Baqarah.

00:06:10 --> 00:06:21

And among that, which he asked Allah for he said, Rob Danna, what the fee him what Azulon minimum yet to Allah him area tikka, where you're only Makita double hikma.

00:06:22 --> 00:06:23

We use a key here.

00:06:24 --> 00:06:28

So, here, Ibrahim Harrison said, Yeah, Rob.

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

Our Lord sinned

00:06:33 --> 00:06:35

among them, meaning among the people of

00:06:37 --> 00:06:43

send from among them, a messenger who will recite to them your act

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

and teach them the book.

00:06:47 --> 00:06:49

And the Sunnah, and hikma refers to the sun,

00:06:50 --> 00:06:56

and who will also purify that? So this is Ibrahim Ali his Salam

00:06:58 --> 00:06:59

who is asking ALLAH to send

00:07:01 --> 00:07:03

a prophet who will be one of them.

00:07:06 --> 00:07:09

And no Prophet was sent

00:07:11 --> 00:07:12

to these people

00:07:13 --> 00:07:16

except Mohamed Salah Lama he was

00:07:19 --> 00:07:36

the other nations like then he is wrong, he'd had many prophets, but the Arabs from the lineage of Ismail Ali Salam did not have a single prophet that was sent to them. So obviously this dua refers to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:07:37 --> 00:07:41

the second example of how it is mentioned in the Quran

00:07:43 --> 00:07:44

or is it sorry, sir?

00:07:46 --> 00:07:59

So what did he say? He said I'm saying and so too soft. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, what you call it he said below Mariana? Yeah, Benny is Surah era in the rasool Allah He Eleiko Musa Deacon li Medina, Yamuna Torah.

00:08:02 --> 00:08:15

When reciting Salam, the son of Miriam said, All Bani Israel. Truly I am Allah's messenger to you confirming the Torah which came before me, who was a total given to

00:08:16 --> 00:08:17

Musa alayhis salam.

00:08:19 --> 00:08:26

So, he says this And then he says, one will bash urine, B Rasool in yet T Member ID smooth.

00:08:29 --> 00:08:38

And also, I am giving you good news, glad tidings of a messenger who will come after me, whose name will be

00:08:41 --> 00:08:44

so obviously, this is the clearest evidence

00:08:46 --> 00:08:48

that the prophets they knew

00:08:49 --> 00:08:51

that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam welcome

00:08:56 --> 00:09:08

also in Surah, two Raf, ALLAH SubhanA who had to Allah mentions how al Kitab the Jews and Christians, they had knowledge of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:09:11 --> 00:09:24

because he was mentioned in their scriptures, and so Allah subhanahu Metalla says Alladhina you tell the ruinart Rasul Nabil on me and Lydia J Duna. Whom, to benang the whom Victor RA

00:09:26 --> 00:09:27

will ng

00:09:28 --> 00:09:43

you have more room than an arrow for IN HOME and monka we will do the homework for you that will hurt Remodeling in one way or the other is wrong we'll have an LLC T can Italian. So, here what is the law say? He says, the ones who follow the messenger,

00:09:44 --> 00:09:47

the unlettered prophet

00:09:48 --> 00:09:51

when we say unlettered prophet, what does that mean?

00:09:52 --> 00:09:53

What does that mean?

00:09:56 --> 00:09:59

The prophet that did not know how to read or write

00:10:02 --> 00:10:04

Now a lot of people use the term illiterate

00:10:06 --> 00:10:08

to translate on me.

00:10:10 --> 00:10:16

But we should avoid using that word illiterate because illiterate, has a negative connotation to it.

00:10:18 --> 00:10:20

It sounds like someone ignorant,

00:10:21 --> 00:10:25

illiterate, someone who doesn't want to

00:10:26 --> 00:10:27


00:10:29 --> 00:10:32

And so the better word to say is unlettered

00:10:34 --> 00:10:40

or the one who did not know how to read or write. So Allah mentions this description of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:10:41 --> 00:10:46

Allah says, whose description they find in the Torah and the NG.

00:10:48 --> 00:11:04

He commands them to do good and forbids them from evil permits for them what is lawful and forbids them from what is impure, and relieves them from their burdens and shackles that bound them. So these are some of the descriptions of the Prophet sallallahu, annual, some that were mentioned in

00:11:05 --> 00:11:07

the Torah and the NG

00:11:09 --> 00:11:14

that were mentioned in the Torah energy. So Allah has told us this in the Quran.

00:11:16 --> 00:11:18

So now, let us move on to the second.

00:11:19 --> 00:11:21

The second source,

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

the previous scriptures.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:35

And so, the prophecies of the coming of a prophet had been mentioned, had been mentioned in the previous scriptures, including the Torah and the NG.

00:11:39 --> 00:11:43

Now, some of these verses in the Torah and the Injeel,

00:11:44 --> 00:11:56

give descriptions of the prophet like personal characteristics of his, like him being or me, unlettered, not knowing how to redirect.

00:11:57 --> 00:12:00

Or they mentioned certain things that he will do.

00:12:04 --> 00:12:07

Or they mentioned the place where this prophet will come.

00:12:09 --> 00:12:12

So they mentioned that it is in Arabia,

00:12:15 --> 00:12:19

and specifically Mecca, describing Mecca.

00:12:25 --> 00:12:28

And other verses in the Torah and the Injeel, mention him by name.

00:12:31 --> 00:12:41

So we have descriptions of this prophet without mentioning his name. And then we have his name being mentioned in their scriptures.

00:12:42 --> 00:12:43


00:12:45 --> 00:12:48

however, his name, Muhammad,

00:12:50 --> 00:12:53

it was soon erased from the Scriptures.

00:12:55 --> 00:12:59

And the scholars, they say this was towards the end of the 50 of the fifth century,

00:13:01 --> 00:13:04

approximately the same time when Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:13:05 --> 00:13:08

we find that the name is no longer there,

00:13:09 --> 00:13:16

in their scriptures, and we all know that the Torah in the Injeel went through so many changes.

00:13:18 --> 00:13:21

Originally, these two books were the words of Allah.

00:13:23 --> 00:13:25

But their scholars,

00:13:27 --> 00:13:42

tampered with these books, distorted them, adding what they want, taking out what they want. And one of the things that they took out was the name of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. What further proves this, that the name of Muhammad was there

00:13:45 --> 00:13:45


00:13:47 --> 00:13:50

a gospel known as the Gospel of Barnabas.

00:13:51 --> 00:13:54

This was a part of the Bible that disappeared.

00:13:55 --> 00:13:56

But then

00:13:57 --> 00:14:06

it really resurfaced later on. And, you know, when they discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls,

00:14:08 --> 00:14:14

they also found the Gospel of Barnabas. Now, why is this gospel so

00:14:15 --> 00:14:18

relevant? Why is it so important? Because

00:14:19 --> 00:14:21

it is one of the places where Mohammed is mentioned by me.

00:14:23 --> 00:14:24

Not only that,

00:14:26 --> 00:14:33

but this book also mentions the ISA Ali has Salam, as a servant of Allah,

00:14:34 --> 00:14:35

and not a son of Allah.

00:14:36 --> 00:14:38

Now, obviously, the Christians,

00:14:39 --> 00:14:45

they rejected this gospel, and they said, This is the invention of the Muslims.

00:14:46 --> 00:14:47

The Muslims forged this,

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

to prove that, you know, Islam is the truth, that all the evidence is show that this was a part of the Bible that the Christians tried to conceal

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

and height

00:15:02 --> 00:15:05

shaker Islam even tiny are Rahim Allah to Allah he says

00:15:07 --> 00:15:10

I myself have seen copies of the zebu.

00:15:13 --> 00:15:15

There's a Buddha was the book given to who?

00:15:18 --> 00:15:19

That would Alia Salam,

00:15:21 --> 00:15:28

even Taymiyah says I myself have seen copies of this taboo which mentioned the prophethood of Muhammad explicitly by name.

00:15:29 --> 00:15:32

But I saw another copy of this taboo and I did not see it.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:45

He says, So, it is not far fetched that some copies would mention characteristics of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that would not be mentioned in other copies.

00:15:47 --> 00:15:54

So, the point is that the name of masala Huang was there, whether they tried to hide it or not.

00:15:56 --> 00:15:58

Now, it is mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari,

00:15:59 --> 00:16:29

the Abdullah in Hungary liberal house Rhodiola and the famous companion until it had been hammered. He was asked about the description of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam in the Torah. And so he replied Yes, by Allah. Abdullah ibn Muhammad was one of those who learned to read their scriptures, and the Torah. So he says yes, by Allah. He is described in the Torah partly as he is described in the Quran.

00:16:30 --> 00:16:31

And then he recited

00:16:33 --> 00:16:43

so the part that he is described as in the Quran is where Allah says in surah Raza, yeah, you have never you in Russia, you don't want to wish you don't want to do.

00:16:45 --> 00:16:53

So this is also mentioned in the Torah, or prophet we have sent you as a witness, a bearer of good news and as a warner.

00:16:55 --> 00:17:01

So this description is mentioned in the Torah. But then another, he continued

00:17:02 --> 00:17:04

the description mentioned in the Torah

00:17:05 --> 00:17:07

and he is a protection to the unlettered

00:17:08 --> 00:17:11

the people who don't know how to read or write the Arabs.

00:17:13 --> 00:17:19

He goes on to say, what is mentioned in the Torah, you are my slave and messenger, I have called you a mutawa kill.

00:17:20 --> 00:17:33

The one who trusts in Allah, who is neither discourteous nor harsh nor loud in the markets, Allah will not take him until he has made the crooked society meaning the Arabs.

00:17:35 --> 00:17:41

Allah will not take him until he has made that society straight by him, so that they will end up saying there is none

00:17:43 --> 00:17:51

worthy of worship except Allah likely to * Allah, and by Thy will open, blind eyes, deaf ears and covered hearts.

00:17:55 --> 00:17:57

So we could see the different places where

00:17:58 --> 00:18:03

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been mentioned in their scriptures. Now.

00:18:05 --> 00:18:07

If you approach the Christians today,

00:18:09 --> 00:18:13

and especially, you know their scholars,

00:18:15 --> 00:18:20

and you show them how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been mentioned in the Bible,

00:18:22 --> 00:18:24

their distorted bible of today.

00:18:27 --> 00:18:36

If you showed them the verses, and obviously what did we say? His name is no longer mentioned. But the descriptions are mentioned.

00:18:37 --> 00:18:44

The descriptions that match the descriptions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. These aren't mentioned, you can open the Bible and find them.

00:18:46 --> 00:18:48

So if you go to the Christians and tell them look,

00:18:49 --> 00:18:54

it's obvious, these are the descriptions that a prophet is going to come in he's Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:18:57 --> 00:18:58

They will say no.

00:19:00 --> 00:19:07

Yes, it's mentioned. But they'll say no, all of these descriptions refer to a saheliyon Salah.

00:19:10 --> 00:19:11

So for example,

00:19:13 --> 00:19:15

in Deuteronomy,

00:19:18 --> 00:19:27

verse 18, it says, I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren. So this is Musa alayhis salam.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:35

Allah is telling Musa howdy salaam, I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like you, Musa

00:19:36 --> 00:19:42

and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I shall command

00:19:46 --> 00:19:51

so here it says, I will send them a prophet like you are Musa, Lisa.

00:19:52 --> 00:19:53

Now the question is,

00:19:56 --> 00:19:59

who resembled Musa Halle who Saranda? Most

00:20:01 --> 00:20:06

Was it ERISA? It has Suriname or Muhammad's Allah Allahu Allah yourself.

00:20:08 --> 00:20:15

Now obviously the Christians are saying this refers to or is it Sarah? Allah is telling Musa, I will send a prophet

00:20:16 --> 00:20:17

he will be like you.

00:20:19 --> 00:20:21

So what we have to do now is we have to show them

00:20:23 --> 00:20:29

how this is referring to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and not recited. So let's look at the differences.

00:20:30 --> 00:20:31

How was

00:20:33 --> 00:20:39

how did how did Musa Alexander resemble Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the most first of all,

00:20:41 --> 00:20:43

Musa alayhis salam had parents,

00:20:44 --> 00:20:49

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam had parents, whereas recently Saddam had

00:20:51 --> 00:20:53

only a mother and no father.

00:20:54 --> 00:20:55


00:20:56 --> 00:20:58

Musa alayhis salam her children,

00:20:59 --> 00:21:15

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam her children, hobo Italia Salam, he did not have any children. Thirdly, Musa alayhis salam was born in a natural way. So was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as for easily Salam.

00:21:16 --> 00:21:21

He was born not in a natural way, but rather rather in a miraculous way.

00:21:23 --> 00:21:24

For three,

00:21:25 --> 00:21:36

Musa alayhis salam was generally accepted by his people. They believed in him, yes, they were rebellious. They wouldn't listen to him but generally they followed him.

00:21:38 --> 00:21:44

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had companions who followed him. Hobo isa hadiah Salaam.

00:21:45 --> 00:21:47

Who are the people he was sent to Bani Israel.

00:21:49 --> 00:21:53

And for the most part that you rejected Him, the Jews they rejected

00:21:55 --> 00:21:55


00:21:56 --> 00:21:58

Musa alayhis salam,

00:21:59 --> 00:22:03

and also Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were both rulers.

00:22:04 --> 00:22:05

They had authority.

00:22:08 --> 00:22:10

And so they had the power to

00:22:11 --> 00:22:13

apply the hood, the punishments of Allah.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:19

And in our Diem, we know that

00:22:21 --> 00:22:25

not just anyone can go and apply the punishments. It has to be the ruler.

00:22:28 --> 00:22:33

That was the case with Musa alayhis salam, and also Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:22:35 --> 00:22:36

But nor are you sad, he said,

00:22:37 --> 00:22:41

when a case of crime would come to him, he would refuse to

00:22:42 --> 00:22:48

inflict a punishment. He didn't have that power. He was not a ruler in that sense.

00:22:49 --> 00:22:51

And even mentioned in the Bible that

00:22:52 --> 00:22:58

he says, My kingdom is not on this earth. I don't I'm not a king. I'm not a leader, a ruler.

00:23:00 --> 00:23:01


00:23:04 --> 00:23:15

Musa alayhis salam came with the Sharia, a new law. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with a Sharia a new law. Whereas the ISA Allah has Salam.

00:23:16 --> 00:23:17

What did he come with?

00:23:19 --> 00:23:19

Nothing new.

00:23:21 --> 00:23:28

The law that he followed was the law of Saudis and the Sharia of Masada, Salah, seven free.

00:23:29 --> 00:23:33

Musa Ali Salam had led his people for hijra,

00:23:34 --> 00:23:41

a mass exodus out of Egypt, into the holy land into Palestine.

00:23:42 --> 00:23:44

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to

00:23:47 --> 00:23:50

lead his people on the Hydra and they migrated.

00:23:51 --> 00:23:55

While Sid salaam did not have any kind of Hydra.

00:23:56 --> 00:23:57


00:23:59 --> 00:24:03

the Hijra is a very important part of both

00:24:05 --> 00:24:08

the lives of Musa alayhis salam and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:24:10 --> 00:24:12

For us, it was the beginning of a new calendar

00:24:14 --> 00:24:17

which was when we start counting our history from

00:24:18 --> 00:24:22

and even for the Jews. Many of their

00:24:23 --> 00:24:30

events surround that exodus of leaving Egypt and going to going to Palestine

00:24:32 --> 00:24:32


00:24:34 --> 00:24:41

both Musa alayhis salam and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were victorious over their enemies.

00:24:43 --> 00:24:45

And so Musa Ali's I'm one against Farah

00:24:46 --> 00:24:50

and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one against those who fought him.

00:24:51 --> 00:24:59

Whereas there is a highly he Salam had never won in the worldly sense. In fact, the Christians they say that he was killed

00:25:04 --> 00:25:10

naively Musa alayhis salam and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam both died a natural death.

00:25:12 --> 00:25:16

On the other hand, what do the Christians believe about weary Sadie has Salam

00:25:18 --> 00:25:20

that he was killed.

00:25:21 --> 00:25:34

He didn't die a natural death. While obviously we believe that are you sad as that was not killed, nor did he die, but rather, Allah raised him up. By the way, the point is, it was not a natural death.

00:25:35 --> 00:25:36


00:25:37 --> 00:25:42

Musa alayhis salam and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are both buried in the ground.

00:25:46 --> 00:25:51

As for reciting some of the Christians, they believe that he was initially buried and then

00:25:52 --> 00:25:56

resurrected. While we believe that he was never buried to start with.

00:25:58 --> 00:25:59

Number 11.

00:26:00 --> 00:26:02

Here we can use

00:26:03 --> 00:26:05

a Christian belief to argue against

00:26:06 --> 00:26:13

the Christians believe that Sally is Salam was like Musa alayhis salam.

00:26:15 --> 00:26:18

So this is what they're saying that he resembled him right?

00:26:19 --> 00:26:23

And this is what the verse is saying that

00:26:24 --> 00:26:27

you know, Prophet will come like you or Musa.

00:26:29 --> 00:26:35

But then they also claim that pre Sally who Salam is a son of God or that he is God. So how is this the same?

00:26:37 --> 00:26:38

They don't resemble each other.

00:26:40 --> 00:26:44

How can a prophet and a God be like each other?

00:26:47 --> 00:26:54

There is no resemblance there. One is a god the other is a prophet. While we obviously say that,

00:26:55 --> 00:27:01

all three were prophets of Allah subhanahu ATOD. Number 12.

00:27:02 --> 00:27:24

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became a prophet at which age at the age of 40, Musa alayhis salam. And the Bible mentions this, that Musa Ali Sam also became a prophet at the age of 40. And the Bible mentions there isa Ali Hassan became a prophet at the age of 30.

00:27:28 --> 00:27:30

Finally, one last resemblance.

00:27:31 --> 00:27:35

The Christians claimed that reciting Islam was resurrected after his death.

00:27:37 --> 00:27:42

While none of the followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Musa alayhis salam,

00:27:44 --> 00:27:47

none of them claim that they were resurrected.

00:27:50 --> 00:27:54

So the point here is, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:27:55 --> 00:27:59

is the one who resembled Musa alayhis salam, the most.

00:28:02 --> 00:28:18

No one after Musa alayhis salam resembled him more than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So we can easily conclude that this prophecy, which is mentioned in the Bible, of Musa Ali Salam did not apply Terry Sadie, Sam at all.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:26

And all the other verses that we find in the Torah or in the in G in the Bible,

00:28:27 --> 00:28:28


00:28:29 --> 00:28:32

all of these descriptions of the coming of a prophet

00:28:34 --> 00:28:39

which the Christians claim all refer to reciting something, none of them refer to as Alia said,

00:28:40 --> 00:28:46

they all refer to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:28:48 --> 00:28:52

So, this is the second source, the previous scriptures. Finally, the third

00:28:53 --> 00:28:54

source is

00:28:57 --> 00:28:59

individual testimonials.

00:29:01 --> 00:29:06

There were many individuals around the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:29:08 --> 00:29:11

who mentioned that a prophet is about to emerge,

00:29:13 --> 00:29:18

whether they were in the Arabian Peninsula or outside

00:29:19 --> 00:29:23

whether they lived to see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam or not,

00:29:25 --> 00:29:27

whether they believed in Him when He came or not.

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

Let us look at the testimonies. That came before he emerged as a prophet and administrator. We find all of them are the same

00:29:41 --> 00:29:51

people individuals mentioning a prophet is about to come. He is about to come in this particular place, he will have such and such descriptions

00:29:53 --> 00:29:57

and all of this information where did they get it from their scriptures as we have seen,

00:29:59 --> 00:30:00

indicating that our prayer

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

effect is soon going to come.

00:30:03 --> 00:30:08

They had knowledge of this, they were sharing this information with those around them.

00:30:10 --> 00:30:13

And we have already looked at some examples of that.

00:30:15 --> 00:30:18

We've already seen some examples of, such as

00:30:19 --> 00:30:27

in the story of Salon welfarism, or the Allahu Akbar. And so the last monk that he spent time with,

00:30:28 --> 00:30:29

in Alam Maria,

00:30:31 --> 00:30:32

when we spoke about his story last week,

00:30:34 --> 00:30:36

when that Christian monk was about to die,

00:30:37 --> 00:30:38

he said to Solomon,

00:30:40 --> 00:30:45

my son, by Allah, I do not know of anyone who follows our way

00:30:46 --> 00:31:15

to whom I could advise you to go to after my death. But there has come that time for a prophet to emerge, he will be sent with the religion of Abraham, he will appear in the land of the Arabs, and he will migrate to a land between two lava fields, between which there are deep palm trees, he will have unmistakable characteristics that will not be hidden, he will eat

00:31:16 --> 00:31:23

of whatever is given as a gift, but he will not eat if he is given something as charity

00:31:25 --> 00:31:33

between his shoulder blades is the seal of the author of prophethood. And then he said to him, if you can go to that land, then go

00:31:35 --> 00:31:36

so this is the first testimony.

00:31:38 --> 00:31:40

The second example

00:31:44 --> 00:31:45

is a Jewish rabbi

00:31:47 --> 00:31:51

who left a sham Palestine in Syria.

00:31:53 --> 00:31:57

He left to go to Medina and settle there.

00:32:00 --> 00:32:02

His name was abou a to yen.

00:32:04 --> 00:32:07

And so he settled among bunk Reva

00:32:08 --> 00:32:11

they were a tribe of the Jews in Medina.

00:32:12 --> 00:32:20

But he passed away two years before the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he was about to die,

00:32:21 --> 00:32:26

he said to Ben Craver, he said to them, oh, Jews.

00:32:28 --> 00:32:36

What do you think made me to leave the land of bread and wine and come to this land of misery and hunger?

00:32:39 --> 00:32:41

Because in those days,

00:32:44 --> 00:32:47

the better place to migrate to

00:32:48 --> 00:32:49


00:32:50 --> 00:32:57

to the places where there were established civilizations, like the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, etc.

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

These were affluent societies, successful societies in the dunya. We sense as for the Arabs, they were considered backward.

00:33:11 --> 00:33:12

They used to live in poverty.

00:33:14 --> 00:33:16

It's a desert that they're living in.

00:33:18 --> 00:33:22

So he said, What would why why do you think I left all of that to come here?

00:33:23 --> 00:33:27

And so they said to him, you would know better? He said,

00:33:28 --> 00:33:39

I came to this land, expecting the emergence of a Prophet whose time has come. And so I had hoped that he would be sent and I could follow him.

00:33:43 --> 00:33:51

So a clear testimony. How does he notice he's a Jewish rabbi? Because it's mentioned in the scriptures.

00:33:54 --> 00:33:54


00:33:56 --> 00:33:58

what ended up happening when,

00:33:59 --> 00:34:01

when the Prophet SAW Selim came,

00:34:02 --> 00:34:03


00:34:05 --> 00:34:09

you know, he even migrated to Medina. What did the Jews do?

00:34:10 --> 00:34:15

They were aware of this fact. They were aware that a prophet is soon going to come.

00:34:17 --> 00:34:20

In fact, what further

00:34:21 --> 00:34:25

boosted the Eman of the unsought, the unsought were

00:34:27 --> 00:34:28

the Muslims of Medina.

00:34:29 --> 00:34:30

What further

00:34:32 --> 00:34:41

made them to accept Islam was the fact that they were neighbors among the Jews used to always mention the coming of a prophet,

00:34:42 --> 00:34:43

a messenger who would be sent to them

00:34:45 --> 00:34:47

but then when he finally came,

00:34:49 --> 00:34:59

they did disbelieved. Allah subhana wa Tada says in Surah Baqarah when a magia Homura zulum minhang, the Lehi Musa the Colima Nahum

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

Nevada Fairview Camino leadin O'Toole kita kita Bella who are of whoo hoo to him,

00:35:06 --> 00:35:16

getting the Himalaya Alamo. Now when a messenger from Allah has come to them, meaning the Jews confirming their own scriptures. So again, Allah is telling us

00:35:17 --> 00:35:21

that from Assam Allahu alayhi wa sallam was mentioned in their scriptures.

00:35:22 --> 00:35:28

So when a messenger from Allah has come to them confirming their own scriptures, some of the people of the book Al Kitab,

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

they through the book of Allah behind their backs, as if they did not know. Now when the Prophet has come, they're acting as if,

00:35:38 --> 00:35:41

as if they didn't even know that this would happen.

00:35:43 --> 00:35:44

Let us look

00:35:46 --> 00:35:47

at another testimony

00:35:48 --> 00:35:50

from the people of Medina.

00:35:53 --> 00:35:54

This is

00:35:56 --> 00:36:01

mentioned by selama in Solana even wash Radi Allahu Allah.

00:36:03 --> 00:36:06

He was a Sahabi from the unsought

00:36:07 --> 00:36:09

who also fought in the Battle of better.

00:36:11 --> 00:36:11

He says,

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

we used to have a Jewish neighbor from the new Abdullah shed

00:36:19 --> 00:36:23

who came out one day before the prophet hood by a bit.

00:36:25 --> 00:36:29

I happened at that time I happened to be the youngest from my family.

00:36:30 --> 00:36:36

And so I was wearing a fur gown. And I was lying in the courtyard of my family's home.

00:36:38 --> 00:36:43

I was ill and I was a young boy. And I was lying down in the courtyard of our house.

00:36:44 --> 00:36:48

So our Jewish neighbor came knocking on the door.

00:36:49 --> 00:36:50


00:36:52 --> 00:36:57

so he came in, and he started to talk with the elders from my family.

00:37:02 --> 00:37:05

He started to say, he started to speak about

00:37:06 --> 00:37:18

the day of judgment, and the hisab and the skills on the day of judgment, and Paradise and hellfire. He was telling them about this.

00:37:19 --> 00:37:21

Because they were emotionally cool.

00:37:22 --> 00:37:24

They were idol worshippers.

00:37:26 --> 00:37:30

And he was telling this to people who didn't believe in life after death.

00:37:31 --> 00:37:34

Right? The machinery couldn't they didn't believe in life after death.

00:37:36 --> 00:37:48

So when they heard this, they reply to him, they said, Do you really think that people are going to be resurrected? After they die to a place where there is paradise and hellfire?

00:37:51 --> 00:37:55

He said, Yes, indeed. In fact,

00:37:56 --> 00:38:05

anyone who is thrown in that fire would prefer he would prefer to be in the hottest fire of his house, and having it shut on him,

00:38:06 --> 00:38:09

only to come out the next day, he would prefer that.

00:38:11 --> 00:38:19

So this is a little bit about the description of the Hellfire that he's sharing with these vital worshipers.

00:38:22 --> 00:38:23

So they said to him, What is your proof?

00:38:27 --> 00:38:30

And so the Jewish neighbor, he said, he looked around.

00:38:32 --> 00:38:34

And he said,

00:38:37 --> 00:38:43

he said, A prophet is about to be sent in these lands. And he pointed towards Mecca.

00:38:45 --> 00:38:47

He pointed towards Mecca and Yemen.

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

So they asked,

00:38:51 --> 00:38:52

When will he come?

00:38:56 --> 00:38:58

So he said, he looked around,

00:39:00 --> 00:39:01

and he pointed towards me.

00:39:03 --> 00:39:04

He pointed towards me.

00:39:05 --> 00:39:11

And he said, If this young boy lives on, then he will live to see him

00:39:13 --> 00:39:24

that he will live to see him selama the companion. He says, only a day and a night went by, meaning a very short period of time went by.

00:39:26 --> 00:39:36

And Allah had sent his messenger who lived among us. So we believed in him that our Jewish neighbor disbelieved in him

00:39:37 --> 00:39:42

out of transgression out of envy, as Allah describes the Jews in the Quran.

00:39:44 --> 00:39:46

So we said to him later on,

00:39:48 --> 00:39:51

when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam migrated to Medina and we believed in him

00:39:52 --> 00:39:58

and he is still a cafe this Jew, we said to him, may you be cursed?

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

Were you

00:40:00 --> 00:40:03

The one who told us what you told us?

00:40:04 --> 00:40:08

So He said yes. I mean, obviously he can't lie.

00:40:09 --> 00:40:10

He admitted Yes.

00:40:12 --> 00:40:18

But why did he believe because of that stubbornness that the Jews had.

00:40:21 --> 00:40:25

So this Jew had knowledge of all of this based on what they had in their scriptures.

00:40:27 --> 00:40:41

And all of these details that they knew concerning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they had, they had all of these details, but still be disbelieved, as is their way. They disbelieved in the prophets and the messengers of Allah.

00:40:43 --> 00:40:50

And there are many such narrations from the Jews of Medina. In fact, as we mentioned previously,

00:40:51 --> 00:40:55

the Jews of Medina, how did they arrive there? We mentioned this

00:40:56 --> 00:40:58

earlier on in one of the first

00:41:01 --> 00:41:16

lectures, when we spoke about the different religions in the Arabian Peninsula. We spoke about how the Christians ended up in Arabia, and how idol worship started. And we also spoke about how the Jews ended up

00:41:17 --> 00:41:18

in Arabia.

00:41:20 --> 00:41:25

And so these three Jewish tribes of Medina, how did they end up there?

00:41:27 --> 00:41:30

They ended up there because after the Jews were dispersed

00:41:32 --> 00:41:44

by the Romans, they were kicked out of Palestine, they dispersed in the land, some of them because of the knowledge they had

00:41:45 --> 00:41:52

of the coming of a prophet, they said, Let us go to that place. And this is how they ended up settling in Medina.

00:41:58 --> 00:41:58

In fact,

00:42:01 --> 00:42:03

the society in Medina

00:42:05 --> 00:42:12

when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam came, was basically two groups. You had the Arabs,

00:42:13 --> 00:42:18

the outs and the hunts Raj, these two tribes and you had the Jews,

00:42:19 --> 00:42:31

the OSA and the hazard would always it was like, you know, two rival tribes, but they would also unite and fight against the Jews. There would always be skirmishes and, and fights.

00:42:33 --> 00:42:38

So whenever they would have these fights, and if the Jews were defeated,

00:42:40 --> 00:42:43

they would threaten us and cause orange.

00:42:44 --> 00:42:45

They would say to them,

00:42:47 --> 00:42:47


00:42:49 --> 00:42:51

today you you guys have beat us.

00:42:52 --> 00:42:58

You've defeated us, but soon we're going to defeat you. When, when a prophet comes.

00:43:00 --> 00:43:02

When a prophet comes to us here in Medina

00:43:04 --> 00:43:10

we will fight you with him and destroy you like how bad was destroyed?

00:43:13 --> 00:43:17

And Allah mentions this in the Quran Allah mentions is in Surah Al Baqarah

00:43:19 --> 00:43:29

Well imagine a home keytab boon minhang dilla hemosol The Colima home what can Omean COVELO? Yes, def de Luna, Allah Larina Cafaro.

00:43:32 --> 00:43:38

When there came to them, a Book from Allah, which they recognized, meaning the Jews

00:43:39 --> 00:43:41

confirming the scripture that they had,

00:43:43 --> 00:43:44

although before

00:43:46 --> 00:43:48

they used to pray for victory.

00:43:51 --> 00:44:02

Through a prophet, they used to ask Allah to send the awaited Prophet so that we can be victorious over the disbelievers meaning the machete goon

00:44:04 --> 00:44:12

they would ask Allah to send this prophet so that we fight with him and defeat ISIS and huzzah, Raj. And then Allah says

00:44:14 --> 00:44:18

salam Jha, who now Rahu kufr obey

00:44:20 --> 00:44:21

the law, not all here.

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

But when it had come, when,

00:44:28 --> 00:44:38

when it had come what they recognize the book and also the messenger, they disbelieved they rejected it. So may Allah is crispy upon those who disbelieve.

00:44:40 --> 00:44:43

In fact, this is what caused elves and has wrench

00:44:45 --> 00:44:47

to keep their eyes open

00:44:48 --> 00:44:50

for this prophet

00:44:53 --> 00:44:54

unlike the other Arabs

00:44:57 --> 00:44:59

Olson has words they have this knowledge

00:45:00 --> 00:45:06

The Prophet is going to come, but the other Arabs included Qureshi, they had no clue.

00:45:07 --> 00:45:10

So when they heard about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:45:12 --> 00:45:13

emerging in Mecca.

00:45:14 --> 00:45:15

And they went,

00:45:16 --> 00:45:19

as we will study, later on into Xero.

00:45:20 --> 00:45:29

They went and met him during one of the years of in hedge, and they sat with him. And immediately they believed in him.

00:45:31 --> 00:45:33

And then the next year, they came with a bigger delegation

00:45:34 --> 00:45:37

and gave him behind, they gave him the pledge,

00:45:38 --> 00:45:42

that we not only believe in you, but we're going to support you with everything that we have.

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

And so

00:45:46 --> 00:46:03

what did they say, after the first meeting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Mecca, they went back to their tents that night. And they said, This is the man who the Jews have always been threatening us with let us be the first to follow him.

00:46:04 --> 00:46:07

And let us not allow the Jews to be the first to follow her.

00:46:10 --> 00:46:11

And so all of this shows us

00:46:13 --> 00:46:21

that the Jews were very, very well aware of the coming of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:46:22 --> 00:46:26

We'll take one, one last example of individuals

00:46:27 --> 00:46:35

who existed, who acknowledged that they knew that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was going to come.

00:46:37 --> 00:46:40

And this is basically the Emperor of Rome.

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


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


00:46:48 --> 00:46:53

when he received the letter of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam,

00:46:54 --> 00:47:05

later on, towards the end of the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wrote letters to the kings and emperors of the world, inviting them to Islam.

00:47:07 --> 00:47:11

When he sent the letter to the Emperor of Rome,

00:47:12 --> 00:47:15

one of the things that he said when he read that letter,

00:47:16 --> 00:47:19

he said, I knew he was about to come.

00:47:21 --> 00:47:29

I had knowledge that he was about to emerge, the time had come for a prophet. I knew that he would come, but I never thought that he would be from among you.

00:47:31 --> 00:47:34

I did not expect that he would be from among the Arabs.

00:47:36 --> 00:47:40

The point here is that here we have it yet another testimony

00:47:43 --> 00:47:49

from Al Kitab, of their knowledge of the coming of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:47:51 --> 00:48:01

So all of these examples that we have covered tonight, basically cover the prophecies. the glad tidings

00:48:03 --> 00:48:09

of the coming of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam finally will end

00:48:10 --> 00:48:11

before getting into

00:48:12 --> 00:48:21

the circumstances of the first revelation. And how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became a prophet, which we will start with next week in sha Allah

00:48:23 --> 00:48:25

will end with the precursors.

00:48:28 --> 00:48:32

Basically, there were certain signs,

00:48:34 --> 00:48:38

certain indications from Allah subhanho, wa taala,

00:48:39 --> 00:48:43

to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to him specifically,

00:48:44 --> 00:48:46

that something great is about to happen.

00:48:48 --> 00:48:50

Something great, is about to happen.

00:48:51 --> 00:48:56

He noticed like there were many different things that started to change in his life.

00:48:57 --> 00:48:58

So let us look at

00:49:00 --> 00:49:01

these examples.

00:49:03 --> 00:49:07

And basically, all of these, all of these things happened

00:49:08 --> 00:49:14

in the months, and the weeks leading up to the first revelation from Allah.

00:49:15 --> 00:49:20

So this was right before, right before he became a prophet.

00:49:24 --> 00:49:24

The first

00:49:26 --> 00:49:31

precursor was that there used to be a stone.

00:49:32 --> 00:49:40

They used to be a stone, that would say Salam to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the nights leading up to the prophethood.

00:49:42 --> 00:49:44

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:49:46 --> 00:49:49

I recognize a stone in Mecca,

00:49:51 --> 00:49:58

which used to say salam to me before I became a prophet, and I recognize it even now.

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

Meaning you

00:50:00 --> 00:50:04

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in Mecca, he told his companions that

00:50:06 --> 00:50:08

there was a stone that used to say salaam to me.

00:50:10 --> 00:50:12

And I know where it is, and I could show it to you times.

00:50:14 --> 00:50:21

And this stone would say salaam to me before I became a prophet in the nights leading up to me becoming a prophet.

00:50:23 --> 00:50:24

The second precursor

00:50:26 --> 00:50:28

was the truthful dream.

00:50:29 --> 00:50:31

The truthful dream

00:50:32 --> 00:50:34

is Aisha Radi Allahu anhu, she says.

00:50:36 --> 00:50:37

And basically,

00:50:38 --> 00:50:44

in this hadith of Aisha Radi Allahu anha, she mentioned everything that happened

00:50:46 --> 00:51:03

in the first revelation that came down to the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. And everything that happened before and will cover this hadith next week in sha Allah. And it is one of the very first Hadith that emammal Buhari lists in his Safi. So here in Bali.

00:51:05 --> 00:51:23

It's a story of the beginning of the prophethood. I showed the Allahu Anhu says in this hadith, the first thing that the Messenger of Allah started with of Prophethood was that he would not see anything in a dream, except that it would happen, like the break of dawn.

00:51:25 --> 00:51:34

Anything that he would see in a dream at night, the next morning, he would see happening before his eyes exactly how he saw it in the dream.

00:51:35 --> 00:51:39

This will refer to as a Rhodia or sadaqa, the truthful dream.

00:51:42 --> 00:51:50

So this was the beginning of the Prophet which he says right before Gibreel Ali Sam comes to him.

00:51:51 --> 00:51:53

So obviously, there's something strange for him.

00:51:54 --> 00:52:00

I see a dream at night and all of a sudden the next morning I'm seeing it happen right before my eyes what's going on.

00:52:02 --> 00:52:03

The third

00:52:04 --> 00:52:10

precursor is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started to love, seclusion

00:52:11 --> 00:52:13

and worship.

00:52:15 --> 00:52:24

And so in the same previous hadith of Aisha Radi Allahu Allah, she says, and then, seclusion, being alone, became beloved to him.

00:52:25 --> 00:52:34

He used to go into seclusion in the cave of Hira, where he used to worship continuously for many days before he would come back to see his family.

00:52:36 --> 00:52:41

He used to take with him food for the state, and then come back to Khadija to take more food again.

00:52:43 --> 00:52:43

Until suddenly,

00:52:45 --> 00:52:50

the Huck the truth descended upon him while he was in the cave of Hira.

00:52:55 --> 00:52:59

The Arabs used to have a custom where they would go into seclusion to worship,

00:53:01 --> 00:53:02

usually for many days,

00:53:03 --> 00:53:04

once a year.

00:53:07 --> 00:53:12

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also did this.

00:53:13 --> 00:53:17

But he did this specifically at this time, he started to do this all of a sudden,

00:53:19 --> 00:53:23

he would go to the cave of Herat, which was actually outside of Mecca in those days.

00:53:25 --> 00:53:31

And it's not a difficult it's not an easy place to reach. It's very high up the mountain.

00:53:32 --> 00:53:36

And in those days, from that

00:53:37 --> 00:53:45

part of the mountain from the cave, you could see Naka and you could see the cap. So rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would spend time,

00:53:46 --> 00:53:48

nights on end,

00:53:50 --> 00:53:51

worshiping Allah

00:53:52 --> 00:53:57

before the prophet hood. Now the scholars differ, how would he worship Allah? Was it based on

00:53:58 --> 00:54:04

you know, the Sharia of one of the previous prophets or not? We don't know nothing has been mentioned regarding that.

00:54:05 --> 00:54:12

But what we do know is that he would go in seclusion and reflect and meditate.

00:54:13 --> 00:54:16

And so this shows us that he knew Allah.

00:54:18 --> 00:54:21

He knew Allah as being the creator.

00:54:23 --> 00:54:30

But he didn't know how exactly to worship Allah. So he would meditate you would reflect.

00:54:32 --> 00:54:35

So the purpose of him retreating to the cave was

00:54:37 --> 00:54:45

to reflect over the creation of Allah. This is the creation of Allah, these mountains, these stars, these skies.

00:54:47 --> 00:54:48

This is the creation of Allah.

00:54:50 --> 00:54:51

This creation has a creator

00:54:54 --> 00:54:57

and this was basically Allah training him

00:54:58 --> 00:55:00

because contemplate

00:55:00 --> 00:55:00


00:55:01 --> 00:55:03

and reflection it purifies the heart.

00:55:05 --> 00:55:09

And so, as a Muslim you are recommended to,

00:55:10 --> 00:55:12

to spend time alone indica,

00:55:13 --> 00:55:15

for example, in the morning,

00:55:16 --> 00:55:18

before sunrise,

00:55:19 --> 00:55:21

before Maghrib, after hustled

00:55:22 --> 00:55:26

in the last hour on Juma on Fridays before sunset,

00:55:28 --> 00:55:31

to just be by yourself, and remember Allah and make dua.

00:55:35 --> 00:55:37

And the scholars have mentioned a lot of benefits of this.

00:55:41 --> 00:55:48

However, obviously, we shouldn't go to the extreme that some people go to where they completely isolate themselves from society.

00:55:50 --> 00:55:59

And so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us to take a balanced approach, where we spend time with people.

00:56:00 --> 00:56:04

And there should also be some time where we spend alone.

00:56:05 --> 00:56:09

In fact, that's one of the purposes of clear Malay.

00:56:11 --> 00:56:17

It's a chance to be in seclusion, praying at night alone, when everyone else is asleep.

00:56:19 --> 00:56:21

So this time will just be between you and Allah.

00:56:23 --> 00:56:28

Also, one of the benefits of it is that there's this element of class sincerity.

00:56:30 --> 00:56:44

That might not exist when you are praying in Jamaica and congregation. So we all come here we pray together. Maybe you're coming because you know your friends are here, or

00:56:45 --> 00:56:46

your parents brought you.

00:56:47 --> 00:56:48


00:56:49 --> 00:56:51

So it's not purely for the sake of Allah.

00:56:52 --> 00:56:58

But when you get out of bed in the middle of the night, stand before Allah no one else is seeing you.

00:57:00 --> 00:57:02

Obviously, this shows your class your sincerity.

00:57:04 --> 00:57:08

So here Allah subhanho wa Taala was training the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:57:09 --> 00:57:10

to be alone

00:57:12 --> 00:57:15

with no one but ALLAH SubhanA wa taala.

00:57:17 --> 00:57:21

So these are the precursors next week in sha Allah.

00:57:22 --> 00:57:23

We will continue from here

00:57:24 --> 00:57:28

while the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in the cave

00:57:30 --> 00:57:35

in these nights, meditate, reflecting and worshiping Allah subhanahu wata ALLAH

00:57:36 --> 00:57:51

SubhanA CalOptima will be handed a head to Allah EULA in the interest of Fuuka. Were to Blue Lake wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad, while early or certainly he urged Moreno Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
