Moving through the story of the life of the most blessing of creation, the final of messengers Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Hashimi al pollachi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a point of clarification, I was asked a question earlier today, regarding the well of Zamzam. The question was, we made mention of Abdul muttalib, having had the privilege to have to dig because he saw in his dream where the well was, when he dug it, it began to gush. So Didn't we here before the the primary salatu salam time, there was hardly any Salatu was salam, the mother of his Marine, who was running between Safa and Marwa, and then the well began to gush. The answer is yes, that is when the wealth started. That
is the first appearance of the water of Zamzam was at the time of his money that is seldom when he was a little child. But if you take a careful look, you will come to learn that after some time, it was blocked because of the floods and because of various other reasons connected to the weather and so on. And what had happened thereafter is
that at the time of Abdulmutallab, it was made to gush forth once again. So this was the second time that the zum zum. Had gushed. Now we are moving on to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, where he used to, as we said, See dreams, and the following day, it would be completely true, whatever he saw was true. Why was this the beginning of prophethood or early science? Because according to what we are taught by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, when a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala sees a dream, it is revelation, it is the truth, they have to act upon it, and it is not false at all. Like you know, Ibrahim alayhi salam, so in his dream, that he was sacrificing his son, that was
considered an instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It was revelation. So the same applies early when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began to see a dream and then the following day it would be completely true. This was the early signs Allah subhanho wa Taala was purifying him and raising his level. Thereafter he used to go into the mount of Hara the Cave of Hira. As we heard yesterday northwest of Mecca, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, to take us to Mecca time and again and we ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to refresh us and rejuvenate us so that we can worship him at all times. worship our maker, another none other than the maker. May Allah subhana wa Jalla bless us. So
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to see the dreams and thereafter he used to go into this cave and meditate, meditate in seclusion. Subhana Allah, He used to ponder over the condition of the people of Mecca and try and ponder over solutions, number one, number two is he used to worship Allah and praise Allah, according to the teachings of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, and that was the monotheism, the one Allah He used to praise the creator and the one whom he will return to. And this was what he used to engage in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. People might wonder, Well, what worship did he engaging? he worshiped Allah alone? He never ever bound to an idol. Nor did he
bow to people? No, did he engage in a walk around the Kaaba once those idols were there? No, he did not. Meaning in the pre Islamic time, he did not do it for the idols, but he did it for the pleasure of his maker for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala when Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed him to do that. Also, we learned that some of the various creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala, used to greet him, like we spoke about the stone twice. This is the third time I'm mentioning it, and also de la Sol Allahu alayhi. wa sallam says, I know, a stone or a rock in Makkah, that used to actually greet me sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So one day what happened is as he was in the, in the cave,
and this was the 21st
day of Ramadan, the 21st Night In fact, the eve Ramadan
when he was 40 years old,
and suddenly in that cave, appeared the angel gibreel alayhi salatu was salam, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obviously it was something different for him. He was concerned he was worried to a great degree and gibreel Allah, his salatu salam came to him and tells him he cannot read. First with revelation coming down from Allah subhanho wa Taala. revelation came down in several forms. One of them was this way when jabril la salatu salam was sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he came and he instilled it into the heart of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in a way that it will never be forgotten. This is why today when you learn something in memory, they say
this person learned of by heart, which means solid placed in the heart now lots of hands
Whatever solidify the memorization that we have of the Quran, every one of us have contributed in one way or another towards the preservation of the Quran by memorizing even if it means a lot. In fact you have today we read it so many times I'm sure every one of us knows it by heart. And if we don't, there is something wrong with us being Muslim. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection. So we have all memorized a portion of the Quran, every single one of us without exception, so Panama. So this is the gift of Allah. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the heart had within it, the Quran placed by jabril la salatu salam by the will of Allah the power
of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this man, 40 years old, that's not a child. He's old. And he was being told read. So what happened? He said, Myrna Bihari, I can't read, I am not a reader.
He was unlimited. Remember, Allah says the bulk of them are unlimited. Who
It is Allah who sent a messenger amongst the unlimited one from amongst them to them. So the bulk of them were unlimited. He was honest enough to say, I'm unlimited. How many of us here would be a good one to admit that we know nothing about technology at all? Imagine holding your mobile phone the other way around on your ear? Would anyone want to admit that we don't know how to operate this gadget, no matter what I have actually seen people who read books the other way around. And it's only the photograph that makes them know that this is how you're going to hold it. And even then they make mistakes, and they supposed to be rulers of the world at times. May Allah subhanho wa
Taala grant us goodness, and may He make us from amongst those who realize and understand Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not a proud man. He was honest. He was dignified, straightforward, trustworthy, truthful, he says man.
So jabril le salatu salam embraced him and hugged him tight until he was almost suffocating, and then released him and told him again.
So he says, Man, I am not a reader. You're asking me to read I am not a reader. So gibreel alayhis salam, the Archangel Gabriel May peace be upon him, embraced him once again and hugged him tight until he almost suffocated and then released him again. And he says he cried for the third time, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the third time says, ma Bukhari he embraced him for the third time and released him. The verses were revealed if Cora Bismillah beacon nadie Hanako Kala Khan.
stop there. So Panama five verses revealed one time, what were they read, read in the name of your Lord who has created the term Lord, is not the proper translation of up because up means the creator nareesha cherishes. sustainer provide a protector, the one in supreme control, absolute control of every aspect of every creature in creation, that is the term have been used to refer to that deity. So Allah says, read in the name of your hub Who has created created absolutely everything but here created what
Bismillah Bismillah the hallak firstly created absolutely everything but he created men from a clot of blood follicle insane I mean Allah, He created men from a clot of blood. Now some people look at the Quran and say, well there is a contradiction because in one place, Allah says created from dust one place he says soil one place, he says clay, one place he says semen, one place he says a clot of blood and so on. There is no contradiction. These are the different phases and stages in the creation of men initially dust soil clay, once the first human being was created, the second one was created from his rib. And once those two were created, the semen was used when semen and as you
know, when the zygote is formed and the embryo begins to grow, it's a clot of blood initially and thereafter it begins to gain form and so on Subhana Allah, so this is Allah subhanho wa Taala making mention of the different stages within the creation of men, no contradiction halycon insane I mean Allah ikara war of Boko Haram read and you should know that your up is the most generous and the most generous, the most honoring Allahu Akbar, Allah has just honored him with Prophethood and Allah has honored and favored us all and humanity at large by granting them new Buddha. Imagine what love Allah had had for the people of Quraysh
for raising from their myths a newbie, a precious jewel, a person who would come and change the whole globe Subhanallah imagine the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala for those who were the household of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who accepted his message instantaneously, as we will see a little bit later.
And this is why we say at that moment, what had happened on Earth was something changing the entire Earth. Allah bless the inhabitants of the earth by sending Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at that time, the period of darkness where women were being oppressed from left to right east to west, north to south, everywhere, they were wars they was fueled the order of the day. What was it, it was chaos, oppression, those who are strong rule those who are weak, who are downtrodden, they were oppressed and enslaved the time three men were enslaved just because they were not recognized or they did not have a claim to protect them against the tyrants. And this is what was the order of the
day. And if you take a look at the gift of Allah, these people were worshipping stones and sticks and idols and people and so many other things. And they had lots of superstition in them what a blessing gift of Allah is sending a messenger from amongst them to say worship your maker and you make a loan and do not associate partnership with your maker.
you're the one who taught by the penny.
He taught men what men did not know what men did not know. What did men know at the beginning nothing as time is passing Allah is allowing us to know more and more certain things we will never be able to explain such as a dream. When you dream, what do you dream? How do you dream, they still have not developed a little flash stick that you can plug into your ear and choose to dream what you would like that hasn't yet happened. Love a kebab. And I don't think it's coming. This is a gift of Allah, you dream you can be dreaming the best dream the person next to you can be having the worst dream, the two of you will be one in peace and the other in torment. When you get up Subhana Allah
neither can feel what happened to the other. That's a gift of Allah. Allah says we taught men what he did not know. That's Allah subhanho wa Taala. Think of his greatness. And Allah is telling us on od
de la. And you have not been granted knowledge except but a little still, whatever you have is just a droplet. So Panama
A long time ago, when people used to be told of how the angels write down everything you utter, and it is written and it will come on the day of piano and it will be weighed on the scales literally weighing on the scales, people began to say how old the books Look, they will look like this. And they will look like that. Today, you have a 64 gigabyte little chip smaller than the size of my mail. And in it, you can have 6400 libraries full of books, and still there'll be space. So Panama, look at this. And people used to say how will that happen? Today when you talk the computer registers, the iPhone registers, the Android device registers and people wonder how will these
angels register Allahu Akbar? Look, a few years ago, it was not dreamed of that your phone will listen to your instruction. today. It's there. Today people speak to the doors, they tell the door to open it opens with your voice, anyone else's voice. It doesn't open. You come to the door, it recognizes you buy your eye and it opens for you. It's happening. Where do you think you're going to run away from Allah subhanho wa Taala and his forces that Rob who gave us out of the little knowledge that we have the understanding of so much, do you not think he is able to absolutely have the record of every droplet that has occurred from the beginning of time right to the end of time?
Subhana? Allah so Allah says, read in the name of Europe, we learned a lot from this, and I need to pause for a moment. Firstly, the first words that were revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. re The man is unlimited. We would not say uneducated, because he was highly educated, but he was unlimited. And why Unlimited, Allah kept it that way for a reason. Because the people of the book, a lot of them barely knew Arabic. And what had happened is he did not know how to read the other languages. so amazingly, you will find Allah subhanho wa Taala has covered him. Nobody can say he read from those people. No one can say he sat and communicated with them. No, he was unlimited.
This thing came. The whole universe acknowledges that this was an unlimited man Subhan Allah, Allah, we ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to bless us and to open our doors yet we we can read every booklet we still haven't read the main book, think of it. He could not read but he knew that book of by heart. We can read and write
We are proud and we send our children to school from an early age. We're so excited when they can see A to Zed all the way at the age of three and two, and we get so happy but they still haven't read the Quran and they still don't know what the whole world is all about. And some of us are still guilty of that yet we are 40 5060 years old, not once did we read the meaning of the Quran, it happens. This is the weakness of men. And yet, the first word to be revealed is Accra, if you're not going to read the Word of Allah, what are you going to read? So this is a challenge to you all unto myself. Read the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. before your time is up, you're not going to have a
response when Allah asks you, I reveal the word read, did you read my way? What are we going to say la ilaha illa Allah, they can be no more powerful statement than that. ikara Bismillah be read in the name of Allah when we start reading the Quran.
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, I seek the protection of Allah from shape on the occasion. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, Most Merciful, then we start reading we started in the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This also shows us that what seems impossible in this world, if we say the name of Allah, it becomes possible, it becomes easy for us, Allah facilitates it for us. And this is why there is a hadith where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, could no hammering the burden. Let me say that he Bismillah Allahu Akbar, anything important that you start without the name of Allah, it is cut, cut of blessings, cut off simplicity, cut off all forms of goodness, you won't
achieve anything good. So whatever you are doing, get in the habit of saying Bismillah because in this way, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was Unlimited, he started and was instructed to start in the name of Allah to read and Allah opened his doors with us. If we use the name of Allah, Allah opens the doors, within our homes, within our businesses, within our families, within our societies with our health, our wealth, absolutely every aspect of existence, whatever you do, Bismillah get into that habit. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors Another thing we need to know nothing is impossible for Allah subhanho wa Taala nothing. miracles can happen have happened
happening and shall happen. Remember that nothing is impossible for Allah. So just continue praying to Allah whatever you want. Don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah make sure you are on the right page. Sometimes we are not only on the wrong page, we are in a different book and we're calling to Allah subhanho wa Taala What this means is our food is haram our drink is haram everything is haram how are we going to get our to our responded
malbis fukuhara masaba who
will help me find
a person whose food is haram drinking is haram his entire diet is haram everything he has consumed his clothing the whips around then he wants to say your A B or B How does he expect that to be accepted? This is why when we are making a start off also by saying Oh ALLAH forgive me your life committed sin those which I know those which I don't, those which I committed in secret those which I committed openly you forgive me, you know better than me what sins I have committed, yeah, Allah forgive me.
And this is why when it comes to sins and their effect, you need to know those who do not dress appropriately. They want to show their our, they want to show their private paths, whether it be Hey, whether it be legs, whether it be the chest or the cleavage, whether it be you know, going right up to the top of your hand and so on. When a woman is supposed to be covered and the man is supposed to be covered. Those who expose that Allah have said it is a sign that somewhere down the line they have consumed Haram, either Riba or either something that has been the Wrath of Allah that they have put into their mouth. Where did we get this from? For akademin
law aka Adam and Hawa when they ate Haram, their shame was exposed you find the now everything that was supposed to be covered began to become exposed. And the same happens to us now eat haram and you feel like uncovering your legs. What happens you want to uncover you don't get peace unless your hair is open something somewhere down the line is wrong. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a turning point. I know what I have said is very heavy. But what law is sometimes we need a push before we can actually obey the commands of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala write this for us and not against us may make us from those whose hearts are softened when we hear
something like this and not from amongst those whose hearts become even more hardened.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed us by revealing these as the first verses and
Here are some secrets of the creation of men, how men was created. These people have courage, they had no clue before how a man was created. They did not know the beginning, they never believed in anything besides their idols and stones and so on. It was just the people of the book, the Jews and the Christians who were before who had the correct knowledge of how man was created, and so on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all. So what happened to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam at that stage,
amazingly, he was no cold, he was worried. In all we would say, he rushed down from the Mount gibreel alayhis salam had disappeared, and this man rushes down. Where did he go? He went to the one whom he trusted the most at the time, his own beloved wife. How many of us the most trustworthy to us, our wives?
Don't worry if your answer is no, we asked the wives. Why is the answer No. Allahu Akbar. So it's not only your fault, sometimes it's even her fault. Because remember, nowadays, both of us need a lot of attention. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us goodness, when I say attention, I'm talking of Pennell beating. I'm not talking of attention as in, you know, giving someone as much attention as possible. No, that is there. But we require correction. Both of us. No one party can say you know, she's wrong. I'm right. He's wrong. I'm right. No, it takes to Subhan Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us and open our doors with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was such
an upright men. When he ran down he knew he could trust his wife. Today they say you tell your wife something the whole dunya knows. I hope that's not the case with us. But they say you want to spread news. It's email faster than email is female love. Allah protect us. I hope that's not true. But sometimes this is what goes on. When someone has entrusted you with a secret you take it to the grave, believe me, you take it to the grave.
Look at the quality Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam rushing down. What does he say? He comes down and he is sweating. And he is now feeling cold. And he is now in all and he is shivering and he is saying some illusionism me loony Cover me cover me What has happened? His wife, beloved, Khadija been to Hawaii, the Aloha immediately covers him and she says What is happening? What is wrong? And he narrates what had happened. And she says con la de la de la vida de ne never Allah will never ever let you down. Nothing bad can happen to you. You are such an upright men, you assist those in need, you fulfill your family ties, you help the widows and the orphans. You always are out helping people
you have such great character and conduct and she began singing praise. Why singing praise because this man was indeed the one who was really as she was mentioning. With us, your wife tells you Oh, you're such a wonderful man. But inside she knows I have to say this because I need something. It happens sometimes. If you ask him, you love me the most he says I love you the most inshallah I hope it's the case. But sometimes she has to say it because what option does she have? Love?
May Allah subhana wa Jalla safeguard us with her. She was honest, this was a time of need. And she knew the man is upright. What has he ever done? He's been a person who's concerned. he worships not the idols never has he worshipped an idol. He didn't drink his tongue was so clean. He never swore he never spoke slang. May Allah protect us from slang, it reduces the value and respect of an individual when he speaks Lang, no matter who it is, and that is in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We including myself, we are guilty sometimes of what uttering a word or two of slang just to make it sound lighter. And to bring it closer to the heart, we should try and
avoid that speak clear language. And you don't need to speak so difficult language that people don't understand. You speak in a way that everyone can comprehend and understand. So Panama. So she mentioned so many of his good qualities. And she says Don't worry, don't worry, as she is covering him. She then decides, let me do this man a favor by taking him to my cousin who had been no fun. He was a man who read and wrote, he was very well versed, highly educated. He was an alum, according to what we would say, meaning he had knowledge of the deen and the religion. And he read the previous books and he had links with some of the people of the book. And so when Khadija been to Hawaii, Ella
and her took this man, immediately the husband imagined he was 40 years old. We said 21st of Ramadan.
She was 55 years old according to the bulk of the narrations. And what happened is she is now taking her husband and going they had had children Subhana Allah, they had already had their children Subhana Allah and he's taking, she's taking him and going to be no fun and when they went
She says, Oh, my cousin, listen to my husband what has happened to him. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam narrates the story to waratah, even nofal waka was a man who was awaiting Prophethood. He knew that the Prophet is about to come any minute now in this region. He was also one of them who was waiting. So when he was told a man came to me, the angel came to me and this is what happened. He revealed to me Who was the first person who heard the words of Revelation. Besides Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hearing it straight from jabril at a salon. It was Khadija Khadija been to Hawaii literally Allah Anna. She heard these verses. So she was the first human
being to listen to verses of the Quran after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And she took this man to work and work I heard the verses and he says, No, that is definitely the angel that came to Moses and the angel that came to Jesus May peace be upon them all. musala is Salam Isa Allah salatu wa sallam, that is the same Angel gibreel alayhi salatu was Salam. And if this man is saying the truth, then very soon he will be sent to his people. And I wish I had had youth in me to be there the day that he will be driven away from his own people. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looks and he is now confused. Our mukerjea home are they are going to boot me out my people. He says, I wish I will be there the day your people kick you out. Your own
clan tribesmen. I wish I will be there that day. Now remember, this was just revelation. This was Prophethood. Allah did not instruct him yet to go out and preach. No, that hadn't yet come. This was only Prophethood It was the beginning. And Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was being calmed down by his wife. And Allah had placed her so strategically, because she had had the qualities that were needed to really come this man and to be a comfort and support for him at that particular time. No one but who would have done that look at how his business deals brought him to this woman and how this woman was also prepared by Allah subhanho wa Taala for this particular purpose
of the Allah Allah. So what happened? He says, Yes, anyone who has come with anything similar to what you have come with, has been fought and fought heavily.
Allahu Akbar, anyone who has brought Prophethood and come to correct people has been fought up to today, nearly every society and community on the globe. Whenever there is a man who gets up and tells them as is, there are a few people who fight that men always nearly every I hope we take out a few good societies from nearly every community when a man comes and wants people and tells them and gives them a bit of what we would term today. You know, a true Word, a word of advice. Subhana Allah. People don't like it sometimes. You know, you get the haughty who don't want to be told. Sometimes you have in a Masjid, they tell you don't talk about interest here. Don't talk about music
here. Don't talk about adultery here. Don't talk about illegitimate children here. What? I have come across this. I don't know if you have Why would they do that? Because they have the clouds and they all involved in that type of misbehavior. They don't want to be told when they come to the masjid. They want it to just be smooth, soothing to the ears come and listen to read Salah gives Zakah go for Hajj. Do this. Do that and that's it. Don't even say be truthful. Stop lying. Stop eating interest. Don't even say that because you're going to trample the feet of those who are hurting Allah protect us. This is the downfall of society. This is what happened. What are cabbie nofal says
anyone who came with this message was fought by their own people. Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us those who fight the messengers who come to us.
Allahu Akbar. So here Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is told
that you know what? A time will come when jabril will come again and He will give you revelation, and I wish I'm there if I am alive. waka says I will support you with full support full backing of mine You will have sadly A few days later he passed away. What have I been known for? Only Allah knows his position. Only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows exactly where he is. There are some narrations with make which make mention of his forgiveness and so on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala treat him with his mercy and May Allah subhanho wa Taala treat us all with his mercy. So this was what I mean no fun. So now Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam him and his wife Subhana Allah
Khadija been taken away literally Allah Anna, she believed completely
There was no question of a question, no need to ask because she knew what had gone on. So she was the first who actually believed.
Now what had happened, there was a period of time, a few days, when revelation stopped, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam would go back and he would meditate once again some duration say it was a very long period of time No, the most correct narrations make mention of a 10 day gap 10 day gap meaning 21st of Ramadan, up to the first of chawan now if you take a careful look, he used to go every day and meditate in seclusion, we are all encouraged to engage in ibadah and worship Allah in seclusion as well. And do you know what those particular 10 days are actually asuna to engage in Attica, Attica meaning you sit in seclusion in the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala pondering over
your weakness, how you can correct yourself how you can be improved and you worship Allah alone and you increase your tilava recitation of the Quran understanding of it your Salah and so on. May Allah make us from those who can engage in this at Caffe. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the 21st, the 22nd, the 23rd he was waiting for revelation to come again as per what what nofal told him
and what happened.
Revelation did not come. So Nabi sallallahu Sallam was getting a bit worried.
And then on the first of chawan, It is reported that that is when he was walking this Hadith, this hadith of jabil or the Allahu anhu, which is mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, whilst I was walking, I looked up, and I saw the angel jabril in his original form, you know what the original form is gonna be salatu salam saw jabril many times, but most of the times he was in the form of a man, very handsome men. And when he came in the form of a man, there were times when his companions have also seen him. Like the ones he came, and he sat with Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and he was asking him some questions. And then when he went away,
the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu say that we saw this man coming, he had white clothes he had black hair with nobody knew him, which means he was not from anywhere near but he looked like he had not undertaken any journey whatsoever. And he came in and he sat with his knees right in front of with the knees of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam utmost respect. He's asking questions. When the answer comes. He says, Yes, you are right. And they say we were surprised. How come this man is asking. And he's also saying you're right. Imagine someone asks you, how old are you? And you say, 50 and he says, You're right. And he said, Well, why did you ask me?
So when he went away, Nabi sallallahu Sallam says, Do you know who that was? They said, Allah and His Messenger know best. That was jabril. He came to you to teach you your religion, in the form of a q&a, Allahu Akbar. Allah subhanho wa Taala benefit us and May He grant us goodness. So when Nabil sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so debris nanny salatu wa sallam.
He says, I looked up and I saw jabril la salatu wa sallam, he covered the sky The whole sky. In his original form, he was seen twice by Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam once was on this occasion that we are talking about when the second set of verses were revealed. He had 600 wings, each wing from the east to the west, you cannot see where it starts, and you cannot see where it ends. Subhan Allah, Allah Who says to me at the Ghana 600 rings, this angel gabriel Allah is salatu wa sallam in his original form. The second time Mohammed Salah Salaam saw him was mirage. I'm sure we all are aware of the incident of the ascension into the heavens of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Yes, on that
occasion, also, he saw jabril Allahu Salatu was Salam in his original form. So when he saw this angel, he immediately was in awe once again, and he was concerned again, he ran back to his home. And as he is running, asking for cover, the verses are then revealed into his heart. sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
backup backup bid was the backup upon him. Whoa, just
texted one bigger false myth. Those are the verses they came down. That was now an instruction. Let's go through the meaning of it. Yeah, you have to Oh, you who is enveloped in garments.
He was already enveloped in

come from the get up and worn. So he was now instructed to deliver the message. Get up. And you know, to get up means Be brave, get up, don't worry, Allah is there. If someone tells you get up and walk or get up and tell the people, it's much more stronger than a person who tells you to sit down and quietly just mentioned this. Stand up eloquence. It is a message a powerful message, get up and walk away from this we know the sooner when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to deliver his sermons 90% of the time, if not more, he was standing.
Unless there was a reason for him to sit, he was standing. So this is the sooner they get up and worn, worn who the people won't those and Allah subhanho wa Taala then later on broaden the circle as we will come to see come from the back of a cabin and you're up. He is the one whom you should declare the greatness of nobody else. So we know that worship sticks, no stones, no idols, nothing, no tech before anything besides Allah. Nothing. The greatest is always Allah Subhana Allah Allahu Akbar, Allah is the Greatest. So Rebecca for cabbie, as for your app, what should you do, you should declare his praise and his praise alone. With the burqa for her as for your clothing, you make sure
that they are pure, clean, clean from any debt, clean from any form of impurity. So the clothing is clean and also presentable in the sense that when we want to give a message, we need to be presentable, presentable according to what we have, sometimes people may not have there were times when Nabi sallallahu Sallam used to wear clothing, which had so many patches on it, because that was the best he had. And there were times later on, when he told people who have patches to go and get changed. And to come back with clothing according to their financial standing, he told them liova mata La La when Allah has blessed you, then the blessing of Allah should be visible on you thank
Allah by using what he gave you. So those who now and I have seen some brothers, Allah subhanho wa Taala guide me guide us all who intentionally make patches, and instead of you know, just admitting that they following styles and designs This is
similar to have patches, no, it's a sooner only when you cannot afford it. And you have to have those patches. That was the only time that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, had had patches, but when he could afford it, he did not have those patches, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us a deep understanding. So Allah is saying, Yeah, but
what Rue de facto, everything dirty, impure, leave it whether it is bad character, bad conduct, bad behavior, foul language impurity in terms of worship or bad chases away, be far away from him from that Wallah.
tected. And do not go and brag about something you've done. In order to try and get more or raise attention today, we do something small. And then we want the whole world to know we did this, there are very few who will tell you I don't want to be known Allahu Akbar, and they will stick to that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all. Sometimes we do a small favor for someone. But the way we brag about it, they actually begin to feel that I hope that this man had not done me this favor, because the bragging of it is far more valuable or far more. It has exceeded the value of the gift they actually have engaged. May Allah protect us? This does not mean we should forget the goodness
someone has done to us. But it does mean when we do good, we should forget it. Do it for the sake of Allah in a notary. muqaam Li.
Nan renomia comm jazza
in Surah, Allah says, indeed we feed you for the sake of Allah, we don't want from you any Recompense. No, do we want to thanks, we just will suffice with the reward that Allah has given us. May Allah make us from those who can suffice with the reward that Allah has given us. Remember, when we brag about things, we reduce the reward? And when we think okay, it's me who did this? Some people come and say, you know, who put you on your feet? It was me. It wasn't you. It was Allah, because your feet and my feet are all in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We need to know that so never ever tell someone you know, I'm the one who put you on the map. And I'm the one who did
this. No, that map belongs to Allah, you and me. We all on that map. if Allah wills and we all have it, if Allah wills so it's Allah, let's relate things to Allah. This is why in the Quran Allah says, Yeah, you
totally know sadhaka t Co.
O you who believe do not nullify the reward of your charities and your
Good deeds, by bragging about it and by harming people after that, be careful, don't harm the people relax. Because if there is a nobleman, he will come up and he will pick up the fact that you are bragging and you are harming and he will disassociate himself from you in a very beautiful way. May Allah subhanho wa Taala beautify us may rectify our habits and may make us from those who are humble. These are the first words of instruction to Allah, meaning from Allah subhanho wa Taala to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
don't go bragging, don't go mentioning are seeking a bigger reward than what you have actually planted and bragging about things in a way that now you want so much because obviously all the goodness that was to come thereafter was from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he has the full reward of the Salah we read today, this sitting that we have today, everything I'm doing you are doing he has the full reward. He doesn't need to brag about anything Allah has given him say you don't wanna hear him. He is the leader of the those who started and those who shall end so he is no bragging Allahu Akbar sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it is an honor for us to associate with him. So
much so that whoever sends blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once the Hadith says Allah will bless them and salute them tenfold. Subhana Allah
and there is one relation that says when you send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam once Allah sends blessings and salutations upon you tenfold and he removes 10 of your sins and He raises you 10 ranks and he adds 10 rewards on to your scale. Subhan Allah sallallahu wasallam Allah Allah, Allah, Allah He was happy, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless him in his household and all his companions. So Allah subhanahu wa Jalla din in the first or should I say the second set of verses that were revealed, when your biggest bill and for the sake of your hub, bear patients, and already this was confirming what what acca had said even know that you will have
to be a patient. If it was soon this verse wouldn't have been there. Because when you get up to deliver the goods, there is patience required people won't listen. It's going to be difficult. You will have challenges you will have people fighting you, you will have people from within and people from outside Subhan Allah so what happened? Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by already informing him that look, you will need lots of patience. Get up, use the name of Allah stand, go forth and warn the people. When this happened, he went down and he chose Allahu Akbar. He chose a method that was inspired to him also through revelation by Allah subhanho
wa Taala. What was that method?
For three years? He called people quietly How did he call them quietly? He started off with those closest to him. None of them rejected. Amazing. Who was closest his wife she had already accepted. She was the first one who accepted as we said Khadija been to Hawaii. Hahaha, amazing. She was the first to accept and thereafter who was next? Well, his cousin was a young boy in his own house because Abu Talib, who was his uncle had many children and he couldn't really afford much in terms of food and drink. So they began to look after some of his children and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam decided to take Ali liberati Allahu anhu and keep him with him. And he used to feed with
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and accompany him and he was the first from amongst these young boys who accepted Islam. I accept this message. I believe indeed there is only one Allah and it is reported that alley.
Allahu anhu did not worship an idol. Why? Because he grew up with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he watched the men. The men with character with conduct no swear words. The tempo was gone. He didn't have a temper. Like what we have today. He didn't scream and yell know what a role model immediately his wife accepted. This young boy accepted Subhana Allah, Allah Allahu anhu generation saying the most correct narration say he was 10 years old at the time.
And thereafter, there was a young boy we need to make mention of him.
He was a slave who was freed by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam by the name of Zaid Ibn haritha. The only Sahabi whose name is in the Quran. They didn't haritha he was a slave, and he was freed by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. One day his parents came
to buy him back from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we want to buy this young boy and the young
boy looks at his parents Bahama. salatu salam says, Look, I'm not going to stop you. You want to go the Father, the mother say we here to buy him. And he says no, my parents, I'm going to stay here. This is what you are choosing to remain a slave with this particular man. He says, I have seen from this man that which I will never ever leave him home. Never. I've seen qualities in him that will make me remain with Him forever and ever. That's it. And this was a young boy talking and he was a slave. Imagine the treatment of this young man young boy.
He was so loved by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the community used to call him a demon Mohammed, they the son of Mohammed adopted son, before adoption was prohibited later on in Islam.
So adopted son took the name, and they used to call him a demon Mohammed, may Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses all these people accepted without batting an eyelid without batting an eyelid. Who else was there who accepted Islam?
His daughters sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obviously, they knew their father, they loved him. He was their role model. He had no negative quality, not one negative quality. How many of us cannot even communicate with our own daughters, let alone instruct them. We can't even communicate. They are on a different page. Like I said moments ago forget about different page they are in another book altogether. Allahu Akbar, we first need to get them in the same book, then turn the pages until they come on to the right page. Allah protect us. So where are we? Where is Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam look, his daughter's surrender completely. We believe that this man is a messenger. If he says he's
a messenger, we know him best. This is why Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam later in his life, says
he one of
the best from amongst you are those who are best to their families starting with their wives and their children. And I want to tell you, I'm the best to my families. He says so panela and they bore witness. He was a man. He was a role model. supurb nothing wrong Subhan Allah, so his daughters accepted. Then there was a man his best friend. What was his name? Abu Bakr, Siddiq, radi Allahu anhu for your information. That was just what he was known by. His name was Abdullah
and his father's name, they used to call him ibnu Abbey halfa. So this man Abu hanifa his name was us men. So Abu Bakr, radi Allahu anhu. His proper name is Abdullah hypnobirth. Men are the alone. We need to know that we need to memorize it, according to us and the sooner we believe that the best who who stepped on the earth after the MBA, the most high in rank after the prophets to tread this earth was Abdullah Abdullah. Abu Bakr Siddiq.
Remember that the highest of all, after the prophets is number comes next May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless him and bless us all. So we need to know this man Who was he?
He came down sallallahu alayhi wa sallam met him and told him you know abubaker this is what happened to me.
And he mentioned
he says immediately he says you are the most truthful so I bear witness that indeed there is none worthy of worship besides Allah and you are the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
No questions asked no betting islands. Nabi sallallahu Sallam says later on that whenever I invited people to Islam,
every one of them took a little bit of a moment besides Abu Bakar. Immediately, he just surrendered. No even question, no movement, no nothing. These were the words may Allah make us from those who can surrender my beloved brothers and sisters? Don't we want to join those companions in the era and engender in paradise? Well, there is a way to do that. If we surrender to the instruction of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam whether it suits us or not, we will automatically then become from amongst those who join those ranks. May Allah grant us those ranks, even though they seem distant, but from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He can grant that to us. So this was Abu Bakr,
Siddiq, robiola, and he accepted Islam. and thereafter, he was an intelligent man, a wise man well respected. He had, you know, very eloquent, he was very generous used to help people very easy to talk to a nice a good sociable man, and he was the best friend of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He also had very sound morals. He was also a very, very high standing in society. What he chose to do, this was all in silence. The message was being delivered personally one by one. Yet, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had not yet got up to tell the people in public that oh people actually
Islam that happened the time later, as we said, this silent call to Islam lasted three years. It was known as a dour to civilian, the silent call. So Abu Bakr Siddiq of the Allahu anhu went to talk to some of his friends one by one, all of them except Who were these friends And who are these people
as men, Usman Subhan Allah, even a fan of the allowing the accepted readily. Abdullah lipno Sadiq Nabi waqqas rhodiola one has debated now one of the Allah, tala even obey the law, the law and these were some of the people who had accepted with the effort of Abu Bakar, acidic or the lava and all he had to do was go to them and tell them you know, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is what happened to him. He's now a messenger of Allah, and he is coming to us. What is he teaching, he's teaching good character, good conduct, worship Allah alone, no idols, no sticks, no stones, respect your parents, even if they are non Muslim meaning even if they are bad, and they are engaging in
cheating and so on. You don't listen to anything wherein there is transgress of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But you obey the other instructions, you respect them, and you honor your guests. You look after the rights of everyone, you don't cheat people you don't steal, all this was brilliant, because it was elevating their status even more. And they were also taught that there is a heaven, there is a hell. You are responsible for your deeds you are answerable, you will be resurrected after you die. These were the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, exactly the same teachings as Jesus May peace be upon him exactly the same teachings as Moses May peace be upon him.
Musa alayhis salam and Isa Isa, Allah subhanho wa Taala opened our doors. inshallah, tomorrow, we will go into these, the believers, what happened? What did they endure in the early days? And then how was the announcement made to Quraysh and what happened as a result until we meet again, with sal Allahu wa salam o Baraka Allen Amina Mohammed Subhan Allah Subhana Allah homodiegetic Chateau La ilaha illa Anta Mr. Lou cona toyboy Lake
