Villa Ramallah Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Shalom Gaver mousseline, Muhammad Rasul, Allah is another highly who I learned he was able to sell them to Sleeman, Kathira and cathedra from Ubud, all my brothers and sisters, we are looking at the fear of also Elijah Salam, and the relation when it began, as we know the first word revealed was read Quran.
We are an ummah, which learns and reads.
Or at least you are supposed to do that. And it did that for centuries.
For us, the commodity ACARA means to read to learn to study. These words made a people, the Arabs of the Hejaz, and later on the people of the Middle East and North Africa, who did not have a rich literary history. And we're mostly illiterate to unlettered the scholars of the world.
They read, they learned, they translated the works of others.
And they not only benefited from it themselves, but they became the source of benefit for centuries later. They were the people who were the foundation for the Renaissance and the
not defamation but renaissance in Europe.
They were the foundation for all kinds of amazing scientific discoveries and developments
in the world for centuries for all for all 1000 years. And all because they focused on reading and learning.
As I mentioned in my last hold on this, I'm not going to go into what happens today and so on and so forth. I think it is time for us to take stock of what we do and to change that and make it positive now as far as SLM.
never learned how to read and write for him. The word Ikara meant to recite, and to repeat whatever he revelation he repeated, ever he received his job was to memorize it and decided and repeat it. Allah subhanaw taala wanted to wanted him to remain unlettered as that was also another us plan for him so that nobody could claim that he was the author of the Quran, rather than that the Quran was divine revelation, Allah subhanaw taala said Well Mark one that does the loom in Kabul II mean Kitab in wala to hoto via Munich is a love Pavel mortally moved alone moved alone. And I said neither did you. Mohamed Salah Salem read any book
before it before this Quran
nor did you write any book whatsoever with your with your right hand meaning with the with your hair, in that case?
Indeed, the followers of
falsehood might have doubted so let's monitor is mentioning this clearly and saying that the fact that as well as salam was and was and remained unlettered. Sometimes people ask this question they say, well, he may have begun with being unlimited. But you know, why didn't he learn to read? Why couldn't he learn to of course he could have, he had the opportunity could have learned to read and write. But that was not the plan that also hunted that had for him and therefore, he did not do it.
After the beginning of the revelation, as soon as I saw them, of course did not need to learn to read and write because used to receive knowledge directly from Allah subhanaw taala.
There was no book that he needed to read, but for us, it emphasizes the importance of learning after the Battle of brother rasool Allah is a solemn offer to release without ransom any prisoner, who could teach 10 children to read and write. Now this was the that was the ransom to free the prisoner. Now please note that the prisoners were not forced to accept Islam. But if they taught 10 children to read and write, they will be freed and sent back safely to their people. Now today we have lost the habit of scholarship of learning of reading, of writing.
Just ask any
to list the books that he or she has read in their lives and you will see what has happened.
We need to inculcate the desire to read in our children, even if we have become used to ignorance. You must also make reading goals and goals for acquiring knowledge and memorizing Quran and so on is
now in the game and you're gonna have to learn writes about the kinds of where he from
The on the sub The sooner we know from the different hotties the kinds over here Deborah Josie rock Delilah in Taiwan Josie, not even those, even though Kamal Josie actually wrote about this in detail.
Now he talks about the cat categories of Wi Fi. So first, he says is the period of true vision to luck,
which was dreams that also Allah Salam would see. And then next day, this dream would come true. So he was, he was given prior information of what was going to happen. Now, this was a sort of sausage dream for six months
before he received actual revelation, and if you look at the period of Prophethood
after 23 years,
this is the ratio of this period to the period of Prophethood that is six months compared to out of 23 years. So it's always interesting to six months then from the MBR, as we know that for the MBR the dreams are one of the forms of heat. For us, there are three different kinds of On a sidenote three different kinds of dreams, one is where to look which is dreams, which are the which are true but for us, they are not ye so if you see
a dream in which you see something good and you see something, even if you are being you know apparently told to do something, you don't have to do it. If you see something you don't have to make it come through or practice that. This is a dream for us is only a dream. It's not a it's not by
then we have driven from Schatten which is just nonsense. Sometimes they are frightening dream nightmares. Just forget about them. Sometimes there is meaningless dreams, they come and go we don't even remember them. So that's for the Gambia Muslim dream is a form of way
the second one was where the angel was brought where he and revealed to him someone else but was not visible to him so he This happened in a way where he could not see the agent. I will never have the alarm who reported that so like I said, I'm set very very
the role what's
the see that I'm hesitating to translate this as it's usually translated as Holy Spirit because Holy Spirit has a very strong Christian connotation with the Trinity. And that's not what we believe. Rose Quartz is the name given to imagery to wa Salam wa sallam said, Verily the Holy Spirit meaning roll quartz, which is
rolling kudos, which is who inspired in my mind that a soul will never die, a person will never die until it finishes its term and consumes it provision. So until your risk is over, you cannot die thus be graceful and seeking provision. So don't don't try yourself out. Don't humiliate yourself, be graceful in seeking provision. And let not one of you allow the delay of provision to compel him to seek it by disobedience. So if you are trying to earn a living and there is a delay, then don't fall into haram. This is what I was also saying, verily, Allah does not grant what is with him, but by obedience which Allah will not give you something out of, from what Allah has, except by
obedience, Allah will not there is no hair in Haram, this is the meaning of the Hadees and this is something which
also as an asylum received,
while he could not see the angel, now third one is where the angel appeared in human form now, Tala Delano, this is the famous Hadith Gibreel where he said that we were sitting with Rasulullah Selim, when a man came
and appeared suddenly and he was wearing very white clothes and he had very dark very black hair. There was no signs of travel on him and we did not recognize it so they didn't know who the person was.
He sat down in front of the province are seldom rested his knees by his knees so in the way he sat like as if you sitting in the shower that I was wrestling with also sitting in the same position, and this man his knees touched, the less knees offer salsa, some sort of salsa this was very strange, because they didn't come close to the vajrasana salon, they did not touch his body they stood they out of respect, they always maintained a certain
power distance or aspect distance from the blessed body of Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, but this man came in is that where his knee was touching the new knee of those others, and then he placed his hands on his
ties we lean forward, he put his hands on the ties of wrestlers like this now for the Sabbath was very very strange and then the mindset over Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told me about Islam
will knee Anil Islam. He said oh Muhammad tell me about Islam. Now again to address Ross Ross and asylum just by his name Muhammad was very very
the Muslims that were didn't even including his wife say the Aisha said they have a gala and I used to call him Yasser Allah. Right. However, Garcinia Cambogia allowed us to call him Yasser Allah they did not say yeah, Muhammad, so it was considered to just address rasuna Sana Sana just by his name was considered to be disrespectful. And so the Sahaba were very
perturbed by this behavior of this unknown person. But as soon as I didn't seem to mind it at all, it is not bothered he didn't say anything. They did not see on his blessed face any sign of dislike for this behavior that was also very strange for them.
So these ones are all Mohamed Salah Salem, tells me about Islam and salam said Islam is to testify as to bear witness that there is no God
and that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is the messenger of Allah.
To this indicates,
that there is no God, there's no deity worthy of worship, except Allah subhanaw taala and then Mohammed Salah Salem is the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa taala. And then he said, and then to establish
to give charity to fast the month of Ramadan and to perform hajj, the pilgrimage to the house, if a way is possible. That means if the person can do it, they should do it.
Or other states take this band and said You have spoken truthfully necesitan Amara Malhotra Delano says we were very surprised that he asked him a question and then he said he was truthful. So this is not it seems to it doesn't seem to be that the man is asking a question because he does not know the answer. He's not asking to find out the answer. It's almost like an exam
is asking a question. And when he gets the right answer is yes, that is the right answer.
So then our said we learn we said we were very surprised. Then the man said, Tell me about faith. Tell me what, Eman that's the first he said. Tell me about Islam. And then he says, Tell me about about EMA.
And as soon as nslm said Ema is to believe in Allah.
He is marega. Angels, His books, His messengers,
all the MBR
the last day and to believe in destiny, the good and the evil of it.
Not just one, Destiny. The bits are good and it's evil. The man said you have spoken truthfully. And then he said the man then said tell me about Alexa
He said what is that? He asked them as soon as I said him said, Alexa.
He says SR is to
worship Allah subhanaw taala
as if you can see him and if you cannot see Him, know that he sees you is to worship Allah as if you see him and if you do not see, he surely sees you. The man says there tell me about the final hour. And as soon as I listen observe the one asked, does not know more than the one who is asking.
The man said tell me about its science. So Lazarus sallam said the slave girl will give birth to her mistress and you will see barefoot naked and dependent shepherds compete in the construction of tall buildings.
Then the man went to it
right you get you got to my left and say that the alarm says and I remained
docile as a result object to me over Bureau who he was said that our says I said Allah and His messengers Eliza know best.
So let's ourselves said Verily he was Gibreel and a Salam who came to teach you your religion.
He was deeply religious.
Philip, who came to teach you your religion
so this was another form of where he where the angel came in the form of a human being number four.
The angel came like the toll of a belt
that he came, like the goal of a belt
the engine is to come and seize him tightly and sweat would flow from his brow. And as soon as SLM used to feel a huge weight
and used to hear a ringing sound and someone Saba said maybe that was the was the sound of the vibrating of the wings of the angel among those best. Sometimes he received this kind of way when he was riding his camel and the camel would be forced to kneel, by the weight that it felt on, on top of it.
Can you imagine a weight bearing animal, it's a beast of burden. And it can carry huge weights. That's one of the reasons why they have camels, because of the weight they can carry. And but this cabin was forced because of the weight of the way to kneel down.
On one occasion, there is a beautiful story from the Sierra, where as soon as salam was lying,
with his blessed head on the, on the tie of one of his companions, one of the sahaba. He was lying with his head in his lap, when he started receiving where he had this habit said, I saw him starting to sweat. And he said, the weight on my thigh became so heavy that I thought my bone would break.
That didn't happen. But he said, That's how much how painful it was for me. And I'm just sitting there with his blessed hand in my lap. This also gives us an indication of how rustlers Ursula was so close to his companions, he was such a, you know, wonderful friend that they, they loved him and he was, he was very intimidating in presence I made as people get a lot of
kick from, from being very intimidating in their presence, and nobody comes close to them and so on. But this was not always a seller, he was very friendly with people, he would hug people he would, he would, you know, he would kiss them, he would shake their hand. He would say to somebody, I love you. He said there's a mob in Java and other people. And he said, I love you, and so on. Now imagine how they would affect right. That's why they were so close to it because they got so many positive waves from him all the time.
Another form of way number five was rustlers and asylum would CG Bailey Salamis actual form. The first time he saw that it happened twice the first time we saw that he was very terrified because he saw the release RAM sitting in the middle of the horizon on a huge throne. And he said that his wings on either side stretched to the end of the horizon on either side. And another time he said he has 600 wings.
So the wings covered the horizon, literally from east to west.
And that is
you know how powerful
that vision was.
And the last one, the sixth one was where Allah subhanaw taala spoke to her. So this was sort of directly without any intermediary. This is what happened. In the salon miraj were also Rossana cinema send it to the seventh heaven and beyond to the moon. And this also happened to Saudi Arabia, for example, it happened to also the prime minister of so many with the with several of them via ultramarathoner spoke to them directly or of course, also Law Center was one of them. Now, people accepted the message first.
Resource Officer was initially asked to keep his message private, and not to make it public.
He was asked to preach only to those who are closest to him. So he
preached to his direct family. So Khadija medicolegal the Alana, was the first among all people, men or women to accept Islam and obviously she was the first time we will, we will consider for the man who was the first adult man to accept Islam they've been hiding out of the land who at that time, he was a slave later on, which was not freedom and adopted him as a son. So they may hide some of the first slave and live in a battalion. Alana was the first child who accepted Islam was salam
his immediate family, the
bundle Hashem and for a meal, and he
he invited all of them and he gave them died. told about Islam
People like I wouldn't have done all that and others just got up and walked away. They did not even eat food which was very, very unlike the normal adult tradition. But that's that's how they were how strongly they were opposed to him and to his message.
On a side note, since we are talking here about the immediate family of a Surah Surah Salam, let me also mention here. These are names that we should memorize and we should know. And also as I said, I'm had four daughters.
Look, I have been too humble, homeschooled. So minimal Hamid Zina min Muhammad and Fatima Zahra bint Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam. These were the
the four daughters of Rasulullah Salaam and he had three sons, Abdullah named Mohammed and Kazim. After Abdullah bin Mohammed and Kasim bin Mohammed and Ibrahim bin Mohammed from his wife,
Maria Katya Alana was the Egyptian princess that he married. So
Abdullah and Qasim and Ibrahim. Now rasa SERMs Punia was was our classic May Allah's rather be pleased with all of them all his sons died in infancy
all his daughters, except father
died in his lifetime. So his lineage, his lineage is to his daughter, Fatima Zahra Are there a lot. And I'll just pause for a bit and and think about this.
One of the greatest tragedies
is, you know is
is for a parent to witness the death of his or her child. Sometimes they will go insane with grief, they complain about fate and they blame Allah subhanaw taala Sometimes people even lose their faith. But here we see the sorrows and asylum, the Beloved of Allah subhanaw taala.
He did not lose, he didn't lose one child, but he lost all his children, except one. Yet, all that he ever said was Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Allah kuliah All Praise and thanks to Allah subhanho that this is the constant refrain in his blessed life, praise and thanks to Allah subhanaw taala with available in every situation, in strength and weakness in happiness and pain, in health and sickness in wealth and poverty at all times and places in every situation. All they
did was to tag Allah subhanaw taala for whatever he received
from us, whatever that may be, this is the meaning this is the essence this is the reality of readable color
to be to be pleased with the destiny in Kedah Allah Spanner that is a huge leather lesson for us. And the greatest evidence that this life is temporary, and it is our eternal life that we must truly be concerned about.
Then we come to the public calling.
The seller was directed to preach Islam in public when Allah subhanaw taala revealed one deal. I see reticle carabin Allah subhanaw taala and so the Torah said and one your tribe or Muhammad SAW Selim of near kindred.
Now how did he do that? Some rallies.
He went and stood on the Hill of suffer. And he called her wah wah. Now this was like an alarm call. This was like, you know, people rushed from everywhere and gathered. This was something that somebody caught used to call out if there was an emergency.
When they gathered there, who do they see on the mountain, they say Mohammed Abdullah, somebody, salam, the one that they that they had called the Kitab, the Naqab, the title they had given him was a Saudi economy, the truthful and the trustworthy. So here, this person was a truthful, trustworthy, and he's standing on the hilltop, and he's calling people the emergency calls, obviously, it is something which is so critical, so important,
you know, potentially something that is, there was really pay attention to all of this must have been going on there. Right. And then as soon as I said, and said to them, If I told you that there is an army behind this hill, will you believe me?
They said, You have no lied to us. You have never lied to us and we will believe you. He said I have come to warn you of a severe punishment.
Meaning that if
You do not leave your idol worship, if you do not leave worshiping anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala if you do not worship, if you do not leave shake,
that I have come to warn you about a severe punishment.
And this is the way of the MBR lemma salaam who Allah subhanaw taala order to convey the message pure, plainly, without any doubt and confusion. So the Emir did not use diplomacy and sweet talk or any way. They spoke clearly and directly.
Now, think about this if receivers and send them had asked for advice, right, if you had asked him for advice, and said, I need to give this message, what do you think is the best way? And so one thing he said, I'm thinking of doing it this way of thinking of going and standing on the mountain and calling people and when they call, I'm going to tell them straight directly to the face in doing so any words, if you don't leave this worship of your words, and so on, you do create it. If you normally leave it to worship by one, you have a severe punishment or not Subhanallah you will be in trouble. before Allah before your own create.
What would you say?
I bet you that you will say to NASA Salem, Arizona,
whatever else you do, don't do it this way.
Right? What exactly you should do? Maybe right now you don't have the ideas in your mind. Maybe you need some time to think about that. But definitely do not do it this way. Because if you do it this way, it is too direct. It is too much in the face. It is too adversarial. It is it is
hard. Harsh, right? I'm sure I'm sure this is the advice of this is what we would have set with Satellizer.
marching to a tune that came to him from the actual wellness monitor.
So he his
way was the way that Allah subhanaw taala had inspired him what Allah had given it.
So he said it like it is now what was the reaction of people I will have his uncle. Now who is I will have I will have is His own uncle, especially in the Arab tradition, but also everywhere else. The uncle is in the place of the Father. Especially if the father has passed away. The uncle isn't the place of the father in the Arab tradition, it is very much so the arm is like the like the app is like the father.
When the soldiers are Salam was born,
a slave girl came to Avila and gave him this good news to say that your son your brother, Abdullah, was passed away in his house, his wife,
I mean, I had has a baby boy is mine. I will I was so happy that he freed the slaves and he gave her two gold bangles.
Two gold medals.
So I will I was he loved ourselves. He was he liked him very much. He was very close to him. We saw him as on Sunday. You know, there was nothing, not antagonistic.
But suddenly when Rasulullah Salem announced Lila illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, I will have went
180 degrees, completely opposite. So when he also came, and that was a song called Basava, he also came, he left his up business he came and when as long as the reseller mentioned this to him, and to all the people, and if you do not leave, I will idol worship, you will put yourself in a towel before Allah says. He said top en la casa or yo,
le have jamatkhana He said me even before you for the rest of the day is this way you called us. Imagine you're the man. Here, the sorceress and I'm
calling towards goodness, this man is cursing him.
This is what happens with a lot of people when they face how could they face the truth? I will have could have just listened to that ignore it and gone home. Right? He did not have said anything.
I'm not saying you should have accepted it. Even if you didn't accept it.
You would have turned around and gone home. It is what a lot of people did if not all of them.
They didn't curse but he cursed.
Now, why? Think about that, according to I will have calling a person out from a business and talking to him about Africa, which is taking him away from this dunya and talking to about Africa is a waste of time.
And he thought this is a loss. Right now, such people they don't mind spending time to talk about everything in the dunya but not about salvation not about the asset.
May Allah protect us
This is our attitude to this day.
Now what was the result of that? Allah subhanaw taala revealed but yeah, I'd be happy what?
My avana I'm who am I? And who am I?
So yes, Allah na and the lab
and let's run into that revealed bearish the two hands of a widow and may He perish his wealth and his children will not benefit him and he will be burned in a fire of Blazing Flames. This surah is a miracle of the Quran because it was revealed while I would have and his wife was alive, because it's what I could do about his wife wanted to have my little had the
Fiji the hub looming my son and lost.
His wife was used to do bad stuff used to
throw times in the world which was 11 zones, and that's also cursed her and promised her Johanna. Now the surah was revealed during their lifetime they knew the surah and it said in the Surah said that they were in the hellfire. So if they wanted to prove the Quran wrong, all they had to do was accept Islam even if they pretend to do that.
But they did not and they died on COVID This rights and with the miracle of the Quran
more Inshallah, in the next session. The thing to reflect and think about here is what is our responsibility
and also showed us what that responsibility is it is up to us to fulfill it and follow it with some of the Halloween cream or Olalekan Sammy
