Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah
next topic, Introduction to Quranic sciences,
objectives of this lesson, we're going to look at the methods of ye given to the prophets. That is it.
We've already discussed the definition of linguistically meaning something which is information given, fast,
good hidden, that is the linguistic. And we said Islamic definition of ye is the process of
Revelation and the revelation itself. Therefore, what is why the Quran and Sunnah. So now we're going to look at the methods. So open,
open your books to our pay ability paid 16.
Methods of why given to the profits, page 16, in your notes,
I believe we stopped here last week where we said why he given to the profit is done in two ways. What are they
doing directly? and indirectly.
Now, we're going to look at an example of each.
Give me an example of directly my brother's as per your notes.
God number one dreams.
Dreams, of course, to the prophets are always true and they're always good. Secondly, inspiration directly from Allah to the messenger. Direct was talking about direct now. Thirdly, direct conversation behind the veil, as per unit, yes.
The say behind the veil, should and the area quoted it should say
a lot. I mentioned that behind the veil. What's an example of indirect
good via the angel
and that is of two types. What are they my brothers? When the angel comes in the form of a human, a man good.
Angel doesn't come in the form of a human on his own accord whenever he wants. Now I'm a human now I'm going to enjoy now my human
he Chi changes by the vision of Allah, one of his own will and desire. A gathers his fellow angels look at this guy's bang changes.
Allah azza wa jal allows him.
And the other form the angel comes in,
in angelic form, and communicate via the ringing of a bell, the ringing of a bell the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked how revelation comes to him. And he mentioned we're going to get into the Hadith in detail. Among the ways the angel comes in the form, and he hears the ringing of a loud bill. And he said, that's the most difficult form the most taxing form of receiving revelation.
We're going to get into the Hadith in detail, amazing Hadith.
That was the most difficult
the process of the last enemies to sweat profusely when that will happen.
So that's how the angel comes in those two forms.
So if you've understood that, you've understood today's lesson, that is it, directly would be an example my brothers
dreams. Secondly, inspiration Thirdly,
their compensation, an example of indirect why
the prophet will receive revelation via the angel good like gibreel Ali Salaam. And that comes in two forms number one
human form like Hadith gibril, we just took in last week, how this TV last week he came in the form of a human where the companions would see him. But when it comes in the form of the angel, no, now I could see him but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he would communicate and that communication will be very taxing, and was like the ringing of a bell. Now let's take each one, individually this Taiji example and we can go into detail Sharma dreams, as per your notes, what does it say?
So let's go to page 17, where it says examples of direct revelation a true dreams.
Now divine commands were given to the Prophet via dreams. In other words, the dreams of prophets are true their revelation
and our Isha said, Oh, well oh my booty Abby Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Amina ye are often known for can Allah Yoruba Elijah at mithila fan of the Saba revelation to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. First began how, as true visions, true righteous visions to add true where it says visions that
he would see true visions in his sleep. Whenever he saw a vision it would occur as surely as
the break of day, you will see something in his dream, and it will happen will come to life you would see it upon a lot. So that's how Allah azza wa jal was preparing rasulillah. Before Prophethood he would see true dreams. And that's amazing. Imagine that.
And this occurred for how many months approximately before Prophethood? Anyone know?
The professor of law at SLM would see these true dreams. For how many months before? Probably one,
six months good.
You see true dreams. You just see dreams of something and will happen the next day or the next week or he'll it'll come to light, as clear as the date. Imagine you had a dream that Mohammed visit he is teaching, okay, while you're eating hot chips, and he's wearing a Grey Cup, and he's holding a red pen. And he's talking about why you dreamt that and it happened exactly as it is right now. And that's that's our job. That's our job.
And sometimes the visions are direct and as you said, these are methods of why given to the profits, not profits, meaning this is other profits as well, like which other profit would see a dream, as per unit.
Ibraheem alehissalaam he saw a dream. What was he doing?
slaughtering sacrificing his son. So he goes to his son, he says, In the autofill, man, me and my dog I saw in my minim know what, man I'm from no sleep. I saw my sleep. My dream that I'm slaughtering you sacrificing from boredom? editado. What's your thoughts? What do you think? Now he's Holly Lola. Abraham is Holly Lola Rasulullah. Nabila? Does he need his son's opinion?
No, he's receiving ye from Allah. What opinion does he need from his son? But why is he asking his son?
great wisdom. Why?
Good to test him. Secondly,
he wants to give his child a son to submit as well. Not just Camila saw him. No, he could have done that. But he wants him to submit as well. And thirdly, it shows you the importance of practical parenting. As a parent, as a father and surely my brothers, be a practical parent. Don't be a do daddy. Or don't Daddy, do this. Don't do that. No, get your son involved. For example, if you're cooking, let them stir the pot. You're watering the garden let them water with you. Someone sick in the family. Let them perform rock. They can be Habibi, recite pajamas like this, say Bismillah three times and recite it I get them involved. give them money so they can give some practical parenting
is very important. So for those brothers who are married, remember that get your children involved. That's what Abraham and his son is doing. And we said he also did this when he built the Kaaba.
What is your Pharaoh Ibrahim? away the middle Beatty wa? Ismail. Ibrahim is my building Allah let's go let's build upon Allah. You know, unfortunately, what kind of a dad will you be without the iPad?
I tell many parents on iPad on the best dad Yola. Don't get him involved. Let them stay on the gadgets all day. No, that's not parenting.
get them involved. Very important.
And his son, what does he say? He says, Yeah, Betty not Yeah. Be with respect. Yeah, Betty. He says, If I met tomorrow, do as you've been commanded? Not that please look for a way out. I don't want to get my neck sliced. Look for a way out as some people will do. No, give me a photo. Let's go find another prophet. Give me a photo to get out of this jam. Then do that. And liquidus Enza. He doesn't say slaughter me. He says if I met tomorrow, do as you've been commanded. Look at the beautiful upbringing of his mind. He's reminding his father also, this is a command from Allah. My dad don't back away. See the beautiful upbringing yet? He's reminding is that don't back away. Also, he's
strengthening his dad. So he's not strengthening him. And it sounds strengthening is that a lot like what what our relationship, what our relationship and what Allah says for them as lemma? When they both a slammer submitted a lot describe the act of submission. Allah describe the act of slaughtering your son submission. Yes, submission is to give up what you want for what Allah wants that Islam or others, but Islam, Islam is all about picking and choosing what we want no to allowance. What Allah Holy jabeen Allah said, has replaced him.
Face down Allah jabeen is the forehead, your Jabba, jabeen forehead? Why?
Why did Ibrahim place his son face down? doesn't see his face. Imagine seeing your son's face about just before you about to slaughter him? Probably those that sad look in his eyes would make you back away. Ibrahim didn't want that. He wanted to complete he wanted to fulfill that act completely. didn't want anything to get in the way Allahu Akbar. In other words, my brothers it's a very valuable lesson. That if there's something getting in the way of you
Meeting to Allah, karate life, remove it completely. It could be bad friends could be the internet. It could be Facebook, social media, it could be PlayStation. If something's getting in the way of you submitting remove it, remove it. That's a very important lesson that Ibrahim Ali Salaam is teaching us upon. Well I just notice I add my brothers well i that is a lesson and a half that the three as we mentioned, you can give a whole data so to speak about it for an hour last but that's how deep the Quran is.
So Abraham got to the topic Abraham I said, I'm so what
a dream. And that is why
now you're not going to mention that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would also say dreams. And the only recorded surah that was revealed via a dream is which surah
it's in your notes. quickly check. I'll cover medical, physical, so little cover. That was the only recorded surah mentioned as far as we know, that came via dream once the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he dozed off amongst his companions.
And that's beautiful because it showed rasulillah would hang out with his Sahaba he would hang out with the boys. It's sleep on men who hang around and sit around with them. That's why when the kings of the world came to see the Prophet Mohammed didn't know who he was why they couldn't differentiate him from the others. You know, you'd expect to see a prophet of Allah sitting on a throne and giving orders like that hang out with the boys. final line a tiller with a beautiful that's that's humbleness. So he dozed off, and he woke up and had a big smile on his dial. It will solo why smiling, he said unzila Talia, and even Surah Surah has just been revealed to me in October. So he
received that fire. Dreams. Let's go on to the next two and three methods directly given to the prophets for inspiration that happened many times and direct conversation.
Before we go into that now some prophetic guidance regarding our dreams. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that dreams are one of three types. They're either from
Allah good or
shaitan the devil or
subconscious from our, our own thoughts, our own subconscious.
This is not in your notes. If you want to write that down you can. So dreams are one of three. If you have a good dream that increases your demands from Allah. Glad tidings of Jannah chamalla. You might say, what about Hellfire? Well, if it's scaring you and increasing your humanity from Allah, but if it's like a nightmare, from the devil,
wake up scared. Just and don't tell people about your bedrooms. That's what shaitan once the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, if you have a dream from the Shaitaan and like me, then you wake up and you pray to units, and inshallah shaitaan can harm you. Don't tell others about your bedrooms. Why? Because shaitan just wants you to be anxious just wants to cause anxiety, nervousness worry amongst the Muslims, he's not going to harm you. That's not going to harm you. And subconscious that's they're meaningless for you may for example, because you're a carpenter, you were for example, building a house today, you jumped about building a house, you jumped about hammering and no nails
and you know, cutting wood and so it's this from the subconscious. And usually that happens when you think about something a lot. Usually the third type, subconscious dreams. If you think about something more than required more than normal. You dream about it. So if you find you're dreaming about something a lot, perhaps because it's always on your mind.
What about also law? What do you want to dream of russula? A lot of people they want to dream about him? Well, let's start implementing this soon and thinking about him. If he's always on our mind, we're gonna see.
Once a man went up to a scholar, he said, I want to dream about also law. What's your advice? He said, Come to my house tonight. Because okay.
The shave when that man came to his house to shave had all his food laid out on the table because he is what about my dream? Because eight. All right, he ate the food was extremely salty. He goes, Can I have some water? No, no, I don't have any water tonight. But the food is extremely salty. I'm gonna die. No, you have to go to sleep like that. That's okay. Is anyone to drink out of Sula is yes. You have to go to sleep like that very well. She said they have to do it. He wants to save extremely thirsty because he has extremely salty food.
He woke up the next day went to the chef. She asked him what do you dream about? He said I dreamed about Bora. Rain, oceans, waterfalls, lakes, rivers ponds.
Why? Because he went to sleep. That's all he could think about. It says and Exactly. That's why you jumped about it. That's why he jumped about it because you were thinking about it non stop. If you were to think about the Prophet salaallah Selim in that manner, surely you'll see him.
A chef Mohammed Hassan, anyone know him from Egypt. present a scholar
He tells us of a story of a woman who was desperate to see him.
She was sick. He said, I need to see you yesterday. He said, I'm not a doctor, I need to see you. Is this other doctors? No, I need to see you as okay. I'm not a doctor. But how come? He goes over to what's the problem you had? Yeah, she was an old woman.
She said, I haven't seen or pseudo law in my dream for the last week.
The last week I haven't seen him. What does that mean? She's always seeing him. I haven't seen him for the last week. I feel sick something wrong with me.
What have we even seen him once not awake once upon a law. And therefore the scholar said, it's very important that we all learn his physical descriptions of the law, what is a lamp, learn his physical description. So when you see him you'll know him in the dream, because he said a lot is a lamp in the shaitana. Later my fellow be shaitan can imitate me Can resemble me. Therefore if you have seen him, you've truly seen him Elisa to Silla, we ask Allah azza wa jal to make us among those who truly say the Prophet alayhi salaatu celemony our dreams.
That's a hadith he said.
If he came as someone who's not a prophet SAW Selim, that's why it's very important to study his physical description. We gave this as a lesson. When we delivered the memoirs upstairs, the memoirs of the Prophet Mohammed, you find that online, it's only it's a 60 minute video. It's the longer version where we talked about the story of a woman but she's the one who narrated the Hadith, if you were to type in
vizury because this keywords, part two, we talked about the physical description and on my Facebook page, I only put a two three minute clip just of the descriptions if you want a two three minute clip because you're such so busy brothers and have no problem it was a two three minute version.
Yeah, that's right, and as many videos now,
but just to narrow it down for you. So you can find that straightaway. There's a 60 minute version, the hadith of Omar but it's a beautiful Hadith where a solo is making hedra and they stopped by the tentacle Mbit and this woman should usually give out food and stuff to the people who walk by but they shouldn't have anything. Rasulullah saw the shape that was weak and old. And what did he do and it's an amazing story. And then she goes on to describe him. And that description of my bed is the best description we have till today. of Rasul Allah. Her detailed analysis and description of the final messenger of Allah is unsurpassed, and is the most detailed analysis of Rasul Allah. And it
surpasses all of the Sahaba descriptions, all of them. And she only saw him once.
Yeah, Obama that came when he saw the miracle and I'm not going to spoil it for you, but it's a very interesting story. Now, I'm gonna share with you one amazing Hadith regarding dreams and we'll go on to the next part. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said earlier, saleha Jews on minsi, Tina barberena, Jews and mininova the righteous dream to one part out of 46 parts of prophethood is an authentic hadith. So true dreams are one part of 46 parts
of prophethood. In other words, nothing exists nothing remains of prophethood today, except this the true dreams.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said towards the end of times the believer we don't have a dream, except it's true. And he said, us who had eaten us dakuku Roja, the most truthful, you are in speech, the most truthful your dreams will be. So if you're a truthful person, you have true dreams. But if you always lying, you're not gonna have true dreams.
And what's amazing from that, we said how many months did Rasul Allah see true dreams for before? Probably
six months, right? How many years was he is profitable for
Now in 23 years, or in a year, any year? How many sets of six months Do you have per year to six months, six months gets one year. So if you want to know how many six months you have in 23 years, you multiply by two was 23 times 246
years something the true dreams that he's having before Prophethood was one set of six months in other words, one part out of 46 parts
upon Allah. So he was having that one part of prophethood before he became a prophet. We said six months out of 23 is literally one out of 46 if you do this statistics, the fractions
Allahu Allah Mia, we know some of the other parts are like this, but exactly tells Allah how
depends for God.
into q&a and that one detailed answer. Now direct conversation.
Allah azza wa jal would speak to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam directly. And there's only one real incident that this happened with the province to lessen them with on anyone know? Is there a conversation between Allah and His messenger? When did it happen?
Good The Night Journey LS Robin knowledge these are all united by the way, you don't have to run anything.
And this is what Allah azza wa jal gave the command for which act of worship Salah, we said it's the only act of worship that was legislated to the Prophet, some last alum in the heavens. And it was the only act of worship given directly without an intermediary no angel, direct indicate when you pray, you are connecting straight to Allah pure towhead don't like Christianity. We need a priest we need a father to ask God to forgive you of your sins and so forth. He says, say 10 Hail Marys and off you go and Nana hamdulillah insanely strict to Allah azza wa jal now this didn't happen a lot with Mohammed Salah Salem, but happened a lot with another prophet anyone know this direct
conversation? More Sally Santa.
And this happened for the most part with masala Selim, such he was called what
Kelly Mullah Moosa was called Kalyan moolah. Why kalama means
Allah spoke to him.
Allah spectum directory that's what it means. Direct Allah spoke to him. Then Allah azza wa jal speak to Mohammed to listen directly, yes. Therefore Mohammed is also kalama. Look, so Moosa is killing Allah. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is killing Allah Allahu Akbar.
In other words, Rasulullah saw many virtues that are just for him.
Unlike any other Prophet, for example, we know that there are two prophets who are highly Allah, Allah, his close friend, who are they,
Ibrahim, and Mohammed Salah Salem,
so Halima, we have Abraham and Mohammed Salah Salem. So what do you notice here about Helene LA and collembola
Hammad is in both categories sallallahu sallam. So he is kelim Allah and Hello.
So he said to you find Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had particular virtues only given to him.
And that's what was the best. He's the only man who Allah azza wa jal is the Qibla For we know Ibrahim al Islam made a lot of demand for the Kaaba. But why did the law change it?
He mentioned in certain Bukhara Allah tala said, but another token lava this summer, we've seen the turning of your face towards the sky. He didn't say anything. He just looked towards the heavens with a sad look in his eyes. So autolysin Fela law is an oath. I swear for that noelia naka de Bella tanto Baja, I take an oath I swear surely I'm going to change the tabla for you. Why are sala de la cama be pleased? That is it. Our law has changed the
world history was changed. millions upon millions of believers in each generation changed the way they pray. Why? So Allah can see a smile on a beloved prophets face. That is it.
He didn't even make drama brothers. He didn't even say Allah He just put towards heaven with a sad look in his eyes. Also, because of that, look, I'm gonna tell you
how much love is alive for his messenger.
That's from the gopher, and that's something that no one can ever take away. But the hate is hate. His honor came from the heavens, no one on earth can take it away. That is Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
And Allah has the plan. He takes an oath by many of the creation will have a lady will tragedy. Allah azza wa jal never takes an oath by human a person never except one who was
He's the only man Allah azza wa jal swore by in his final revelation, what Allah says lambrick by your honorable Blissett life he also La La maruka in the home Luffy sokrati him Yama Han
Allah took an oath by rasulillah only now the Prophet has that he is Rasul Allah that is the honor Allah azza wa jal gave him over and over and as we said, when we talk sila, Allah addresses prophets by names Yeah, Isa anymore to a fig. Yeah, Adam ozcan anthroposophical Jana yah yah yah, yah Moosa Zakaria, you know, find them Mohammed never heard of addressing them?
Yeah, you're a newbie. Yeah, you are Rasul. Allah gave him a title, or a prophet or messenger. So hon Allah. No one ever has that. That is also law. So
As we said, his honor came from the heavens, no one on earth can take it away. So look at those virtues Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has.
So that is directly that is directly. Now let's talk about indirectly and we finished. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam would also receive way indirectly from the angel, sometimes in the form of the human, even though the Sahaba could see like how these jabril Amaro Delano saw him. And sometimes in the ringing of a bell, this was the most difficult based on the Hadith.
If you open your notes, I believe was still on page 17 where it says how would you please come to the Prophet the first in the human form second Angel resemble the loud ringing of a giant bill? This was the most taxing on us hula, how do we know this? Because of the questioning of the Sahabi and Harith Ibn Hisham asked you to learn how does he come to you? How do you receive revelation? Very interesting question. Imagine you withdraw sulla you'd love to ask us to question the province of Lawrence and giving him an answer. He said sometimes it comes to me, castle solid genres, like the ringing of a bell. He said Allah salatu salam, this is the most severe form for me.
Then the eight then the ringing ceases and I've understood what the angel said, when it stops, I've understood everything and thus the revelation was given to him. Occasionally, the angel appears before me in the form of a man and speaks to me. And I grasp what also what he says.
When there are other Hadith to indicate that when the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam would receive way in this form the ringing of a bell, I should said as per your notes, he would be sweating on an extremely cold day,
even though it was an extremely cold day, or syllabi swings panela filming chat, chat means code like the word Cheetah, winter. Another Hadith also mentions that once rasilla was on a camel and he was receiving revelation, what happened to the camel
had to kneel down, it couldn't handle the weight of those words, lower, heavy words is it was of a lot of the words of you and I another narration of a companion he said once Rasulullah had his head on my thigh on my lap, and he was receiving revelation. He said I felt as though my thigh was about to break. Why? Because of the revelation heavy with my brothers.
In conclusion, what can we learn from that? What can we learn from this hadith of Hadith? These are not in your notes. We can learn number one,
but the words have a lot of heavy.
Heavy in Arabic is called what?
Good 13 means heavy literally in Arabic.
The word the tail in that form only came in the Quran twice. If you have an iPhone or samsung galaxy and you have an app, check it out type in 30 Bring me the two times the word the tail came in the Quran
and only came twice.
that ala and Yo man tequila, what's called.
Good. So last time I said in Santa Fe alayka.
Allah, Allah said we're going to reveal to you a heavy word. That's one
and what Allah also said heavy day Yeoman Taylor. What's the connection between heavy day and heavy wood?
What is the heavy word?
Good Allah the Quran that's heavy word what's heavy day?
Judgment Day, what's the connection between the Quran does Monday. If you cling on to the heavy word, you'll be saved on the heavy day.
If you want to be saved on the heavy day, my brothers cling on to the heavy wood. That is the great connection between those two words.
And the second lesson we can learn from this hadith is that Rasulullah did he used to suffer when receiving revelation? He did. In other words, my brother's seeking knowledge trying to gain knowledge is going to be hard. You're gonna suffer. Don't expect to receive knowledge easy. Rasulullah was receiving knowledge from Allah. It was hard was taxing on him difficult. Don't expect seeking knowledge going to be easy. As you can see, you've already witnessed sometimes you're tired sometimes you're smashed. Sometimes. It's expensive sometimes sometimes sometimes, right? But if you want to get that what you love, you got to go through that which you hate.
You want something valuable knowledge is valuable. The only thing that's going to come easy. Don't think the LMS became an overnight. They weren't born scholars Habibi. If you want to be a scholar, you want to be a chef. You want to be sure I'm not gonna take time. Those on top of mountains today. We're in the dirt yesterday. True. All humans will start somewhere. We will start at the bottom of that mountain in the dirt. Literally
You got a climate you got to work hard to get to the top don't think those on top of mountains came from the heavens No, but then descend from the heavens. They're all at the bottom we're all at the bottom we're all the same are others but why are some people above because they work harder that is it takes hard work, then you succeed inshallah. mela make you all successful in this world in the next Amen. Does that come low? Hayden sapochnik Allah Mohammed, a shadow now, Mr. Furukawa
are the female prophets? Some scholars said yes, but we say most correct No. Why?
What's the delay?
The delay is what Allah said. Allah Allah said woman out of sudden min publica Illa regional and no hayleigh him.
Allah said we have not sent before you accept regional what's regional men whom we reveal to them? In other words, profits are only men. No women can ever be profits. Profit hood is only amongst them in. So what she received although she received the angel, doesn't mean she's a prophet. And this was a type of kurama like a miracle for Maria malasana. But she wasn't a problem.
Yes, Mo has them they have no has them was of the opinion she wasn't a female Prophet, because she received the angel. And although Yes, one of the methods of why is why the angel so he based on that. But receiving an angel doesn't necessarily make you a prophet. We know of the story of the three men who received the angel as a test, one who was blind, the one who was a leper, and the one who was bold. I'm sure you've heard the story of the three men, the angel came and spoke to them. So having an angel
speak to you does not necessarily mean you're a prophet. It can just as a type of karma
as we said sometimes, or LMR it does, but sometimes they're LMR they may have they may forget the eye. They may not know the area, sometimes they know that I have but they just happen to slip their mind at the time. And sometimes a scholar can make HD hard and he'll go back on that opinion. And that's normal that happens a lot. You find for example, Sherif Ali Mohamed, when it comes to for example, can you have carpets and rugs out of animal skin he's got five different opinions You know, one saying any animal other saying no, unless it's any animal except the dog another opinion any animal except the pig other opinion. So the one that is most correct is
any animal except the pig we can have as carpets.
Okay, now you can't furnish your apartment or house with animals that are predatory. like lions, bears, tigers because that instills pride in the heart.
