00:00:02--> 00:00:13

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. Let's go to lesson four in your books. We're going to Yes, let's go to page 21 of your course notes.

00:00:15--> 00:00:17

We've already discussed it, we're going to do a quick recap of that inshallah.

00:00:19--> 00:00:24

So, the objectives of this lesson would be a quick revision

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

of last lesson

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

where

00:00:29--> 00:00:42

the question was posed, could Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have authored the Quran and we're going to look at the three stages of the revelation, the three stages of descent of the Quran, then we're going to look at

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

the next part in your notes, it talks about the wisdom behind segmented revelation.

00:00:50--> 00:01:01

The Quran come to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in one hit, no was sent over time or sent gradually in segments. What's the wisdom behind that? There's great wisdom, we're going to look at that.

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

So the wisdom behind segmented revelation

00:01:06--> 00:01:13

because the kuffaar use that as a point of attack, they said Why isn't hawkwood and given to him at once, there's wisdom in the Quran being given in segments.

00:01:17--> 00:01:19

And then finally, we're going to look at

00:01:21--> 00:01:25

the links and connections between the first revelation and the last revelation.

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

And that will conclude lesson four. So inshallah next term, we'll start with lesson five.

00:01:39--> 00:01:56

And speaking of conclusions, we commend you brothers for doing sabbatical. We commend you for coming each week or most of the weeks and completing a very successful term. Allah Allah bless you will increase you in beneficial knowledge and inshallah keep coming. It's easy to start.

00:01:58--> 00:02:24

Miracle figure him Allah bless you. And it's easy to come once twice, but to keep it up, less than difficult. So, let's begin quick revision of last lesson. We talked about the topic. We refuted the concept of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam authoring the Quran we said he couldn't have altered we gave some reasons Well, were they illiterate can read or write. Yet the Quran goes into detail that many things where he gets information from second

00:02:26--> 00:03:01

the poser revelation, when the revelation was paused, what happened to the prophet SAW Selim, they began to mock him. Why would you subject yourself to the mockery of people when you don't have to? If it was His revelation, he would have come with his own good In other words, another way to refute slander via his beloved wife. Do you want people talking about your wife? family? No. But there was a pause. When that happened. In other words, he was waiting for a lot to declare her innocence. If that was his own revelation he would have he would have declared who innocent ages ago, but he had to wait for a lot. And finally we just discussed

00:03:03--> 00:03:13

at admonishing rasulillah correcting Rasul Allah, if it was his own words, what would you include? It could risk having your followers leave you?

00:03:14--> 00:03:37

And there are other ways, for example, was the Quran immediately written down or was it recited? recite the Quran, Allah tala said recite. Now when you recite when you recite as opposed to writing things down, which way is more subject to errors, which way is more prone to error, writing and planning or speaking,

00:03:38--> 00:04:07

speaking, surely, when you speak just like that randomly to give a talk, that can be filled with much error, stuttering thing, right, not knowing what you said, maybe perhaps choosing this word, as opposed to another word. When you write things you can plan, edit, draft proofread, then you can press send on that email, for example, right? When you sit down and plan, you can ensure that you don't have many mistakes. But when you speak, you can your speech is filled with stacks of mistakes.

00:04:09--> 00:04:50

But the prophet SAW Selim never ever once did you ever find he says a law says and he says the law I made a mistake might take you back, you'd have one Hadith alteration to that effect that never happened. In other words, the Quran came out perfect. First time, last time, every time for 23 years, 23 years, and you find consistency over there. 23 is a revelation. Imagine your writing now, as opposed to your writing 23 years ago, if you're even that old, let's just say 10 years ago, don't you find over time you become more knowledgeable, more intelligent, right? Try checking out your writing skills 10 years ago, I shocking I'm sure you're much better now. Over time you improve but

00:04:50--> 00:04:56

you don't find there's discrepancies and inconsistency is over 23 years. It's consistent throughout all the way through the panel

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

and we don't even remember what

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

We said 23 minutes ago. Can you remember what I said? 23 minutes ago exact word, no, let alone 23 years ago, yet you find amazing links between 23 years of Revelation, that there's no way whatsoever impossible for it to be via human speech. You can't remember what you said,

00:05:18--> 00:05:22

unless it was from a LaserJet, for example, they would only sell them.

00:05:25--> 00:05:28

profitable is another profit, so a man

00:05:30--> 00:05:31

both profits,

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

there was a profit.

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

So they made the profit.

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

They would only slam was a king.

00:05:40--> 00:05:48

Solomon was a king. That was the only two prophets that were kings and prophets at the same time, only to know the Prophet was a prophet and a king.

00:05:50--> 00:05:56

They would only serve them is he related to Solomon? He is they are related how

00:05:57--> 00:06:05

father and son literally, they're not this related. They actually from the same family. They what is the father so they manage the son?

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

The same in so many things? Amazingly, there would Ali Salaam is mentioned in the Quran exactly 16 times and so a man is mentioned exactly 16 times.

00:06:17--> 00:06:40

Check it out, do a search type in there would you find the Quran if you do a search engine and look for add he comes 16 times exactly and so the man comes exactly 16 times. How do you remember that over 23 years that I mentioned there were 16 times? How can you keep track it's impossible. Another two prophets. What Allah says in Mashallah Isa and Allah, came SLE

00:06:42--> 00:06:58

Allah azza wa jal says, the parable of the sower with Allah is the parable of Adam Hanako montura credit him from So, Joe McCall Allahu confiar. Kuhn and he said, Ben, it is, although this is talking about the the same in creation, they are similar in so many other ways.

00:06:59--> 00:07:06

Also, the number of times they mentioned in the put an ISA is mentioned 25 times Exactly. The Melissa has mentioned 24.

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

And we've taken this before, I believe, you have that with other things upon now, that is from the new miracle miracles of the Quran, they exist. Now some people go overboard, and they attribute things to the Quran that don't exist. Like for example, they'll say then the word woman comes in the Quran, this number of times, and the word man comes in the Quran this number of times, but the word woman has there's many ways of saying that in Arabic, there's Emma, there's and model. There's Lisa, there's other ways and man as well, there's orajel, there's regional, there's more the shocks. So which one did you include? Did you include singular or plural both? Sometimes it's according to

00:07:45--> 00:08:16

people's desires, they make things up No, the Quran doesn't need us to to add miracles know what in the Quran is sufficient. But those are clean. You don't have the would add them written another way. So there's a clean you can't argue with. So how did the prophet SAW sudden produce that that's impossible? Also, you have other ideas that show us the linguistic miracles of the Quran that are impossible to perform by human speech? For example, Allah azza wa jal talks about the sun and the moon. In other words, the heavenly bodies. That includes also the planets.

00:08:18--> 00:08:25

Well, as we just says about them, what could loan fee fell again? Yes, mahone.

00:08:27--> 00:08:39

Allah azza wa jal is saying that they are each in their own orbits. swimming along Yes, but one swimming along. Now what's amazing is in this phrase could not be Falak. What's the first letter?

00:08:41--> 00:08:50

What's the last letter of this phrase? cough. second letter. Lamb second last letter. Lamb, third letter.

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

Third, last letter.

00:08:55--> 00:09:02

First and Last Name. Second, second, last, the same third, third last the same as though they're literally like swimming.

00:09:04--> 00:09:21

In an orbit. Yeah. Got it on FIFA, like now? Like they're literally swimming around in orbit. And what am i swimming around? Which letter? The Yeah. And what's the next word? Start with? Yeah. So the swimming around the Yeah. And the next word starts with Yeah, and the next would actually literally mean swimming is my home.

00:09:23--> 00:09:31

How do you perform that in human speech? Give me a sentence that's meaningful that you can learn that actually does that? Impossible. Impossible.

00:09:33--> 00:09:39

And you have other things as now where Rasulullah could have done that you can't do that in speech. Just top your head you need to sit down and plan it. And

00:09:40--> 00:09:45

so I couldn't read or write. Another example would be Sora. To Nicolas.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

Certainly hula, hula hula hula had a low summit. lamella. Donna mula well, America Hakuna. What's the only talking about one topic? A lot of hate. It's only talking about Allah. How do you want to learn Arabic?

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

Alif lamb lamb ha, how many letters Do you need in Arabic to write the word Allah?

00:10:06--> 00:10:18

For 1234 these four letters Yes. For letters, how many is it certain colors? for exactly 484 letters

00:10:19--> 00:10:39

add a law is referred to explicitly directly how many times for only called hawala who had a law who summit four times the rest of the sorta doesn't mention a lot directly. So Allah is mentioned four times. And it gets better this surah sorta has links with the next two. So what after what are they

00:10:41--> 00:10:48

and follow quantumness? How do they link many ways? Firstly, they all start with coal, coal hollow had gone out

00:10:50--> 00:11:16

of business. Another way they link is that they are right next to each other and almost half literally. And Rasulullah would connect them he would combine them. Many times. For example, before he went to bed, we went to sleep you recite these three songs that's asuna and upon waking up, so they are linked in so many ways. Now amazingly, if you were to count the number of times allies mentioned and suited for luck, and sort of the NASS collectively, when are we going to get

00:11:17--> 00:12:05

for, for example, so to follow along, as mentioned only once, pull out the bureau bill fella club, the rest of the sort of doesn't mention a lot. Go to certain us put out to Bill Robinette mexicanus, Ella, Hannah's three plus one, four, try producing, try producing a topic, a piece of literature, a text that talks about one topic, counting the number of letters that you use for that topic. In this case, it was four and having those number of lines, same number. And every time you have that name of that topic mentioned it's only that same number. Try it. Think of any topic. We did this last week was the boys think of any topic right? One brother said food. Now we'll see what's on his mind.

00:12:05--> 00:12:34

Okay. Other guy said marriage for something to do with the desires alongside? Well, okay, food. So bring me how many letters in the word food for four sentences, after mentioned food four times, and have to be meaningful, something that's beneficial because he said, food is good food is beneficial food is great to have you tell me something, I don't know that you can't imagine that being in Iran. But that's impossible, just to do via human speech. If you were going to do it, you'd have to write it down

00:12:35--> 00:12:45

upon a lot, and things like that occur over and over in the Quran. There's no way the Prophet sallallahu Sallam could have written that and there's no way you could have come up with that.

00:12:46--> 00:12:48

If you are that down quickly, you can

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

add as many more but I won't give you all of them.

00:12:53--> 00:13:14

inshallah, in semester two, we're going to focus a lot on particular at and so on, and we're going to look at their meanings like we did with soul to feel. That way when you read these ads and you listen to them, you'll appreciate them. So the next time you hear the chef recite inshallah, called on FIFA luckiness by Han Solo, you have a bit more understanding now you'll appreciate it more.

00:13:17--> 00:13:25

Now, that was a quick revision of last lesson. I just wanted to add that to show you that the profits on the lesson could not have invented the Quran Impossible, impossible.

00:13:27--> 00:13:40

So let's go to your notes now where it says the wisdom behind segmented revelation. Allah could have sent the Quran down in one single hit. But no, it was overtime. What are the wisdoms number one? in your notes?

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

What is it

00:13:43--> 00:13:47

to steady the Prophet Ha. Lino sub BTB he for

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

the speed what's the speed

00:13:51--> 00:13:56

to keep steadfast firm, Allah azza wa jal will send the crank gradually to keep it firm.

00:13:57--> 00:14:17

For example, when brothers want to keep their biceps firm, they picks firm, so they go to the gym once a year, one big workout or in parts, parts, three times a week, for example, over a period of months, over a period of many months. Therefore that's how you keep it firm. Likewise, the Quran was coming constantly to give the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:14:18--> 00:14:35

a recharge. You go to Juma to get that spiritual recharge that pump karasuma needs the Quran to also get that boost of Eman. The Quran will provide that because his life was filled with tests. He needed that bit. That's the first reason second reason second wisdom sorry behind segmented revelation.

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

gentleness with Rasul Allah.

00:14:39--> 00:14:54

The Quran is that a heavy word or not? Sure is no doubt heavy. It was so heavy. A lot of Jill said what would it do to a mountain crumble attorney turned to dust. Imagine the content all coming down on one hit to the avatar. Luckily,

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

the crime was so heavy that as generated on a cold day, he'd be

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

sweating, cold at swinging. And once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was on a camel, and he received a revelation, what happened to the camel

00:15:10--> 00:15:46

at the Neil could handle it. And those who deal with camels will tell you camels are very arrogant beasts. Might you tell him to come down doesn't want to forget how babies not bringing down the camel? very arrogant, very stubborn animals. But when the wind came on us, or come down, couldn't handle it, straightaway heavy word. So this is gentleness with Rasul Allah gentle. Allah azza wa jal has mercy on his prophet was want to kill him. It was very exhausting. So panel we come back from work six hours eight hour shift with dead when I want to talk to the wife and go in color scheme, my food either got asleep.

00:15:47--> 00:15:55

They don't want to do anything. masuleh will get the revelation and it would tie him out and make him exhausted. Imagine all came on he would be too much for him.

00:15:56--> 00:15:59

Thirdly, from the wisdoms of segmented revelation

00:16:01--> 00:16:10

absent gradation, gradual legislation, degradation and legislation, the legislation the laws of the city,

00:16:11--> 00:16:13

they didn't come all at once.

00:16:14--> 00:16:57

They came bit by bit bit by bit over time. Why? Because to give everyone to give a person all of the laws of the shadow one hits too hard. For example, river, the goddess became Muslim yesterday. Oh, you got to do this. 123 got to memorize sorts of Baccarat. Also, you gotta memorize the body. You got to pray tahajjud prayers you got to foster every second day like they would only see them you're gonna kill the guy. Right Take it easy, and that's why Chateau de la said, if the first thing Allah revealed was don't commit Zina, don't drink alcohol over the peoples they will never leave it's too hard to get this religion. Therefore Allah first revealed what is about hereafter Hellfire paradise

00:16:57--> 00:17:31

until the hearts were attached to Allah. Therefore my brothers, this is crucial in your diary. You find people who have talked it, they go into clubs and pubs and dating and this another all just following the desires. You're not comes out how long? How long, how long? How long police can listening is too hard, softening Habibi. Take it easy on him. Soften your heart. And that's what you find most of us I'm sure when we first came into the dean, right, with a lot of the things that we're doing now we weren't doing before. Firstly, you have to increase your Eman. And then naturally you leave the harem right. Some brothers that come into the den still smoking, but after time, the

00:17:31--> 00:17:45

man increases they leave it. So you got to take it easy on others also in your dollar. That's very important in your dollar. You find someone's not praying, soften their heart, give him a CD about death. Give me a CD about paradise. Hopefully, maybe that'll do the trick. That'll do the trick.

00:17:47--> 00:17:51

Next, from the wisdoms of segmented revelation was

00:17:54--> 00:18:18

to facilitate to make it easy to preserve the Quran to preserve the Quran to make it easier. If I gave you For example, this whole book, as I say, you have to memorize this tonight. Very hard. But if I said memorize a page a day, isn't that easier. The Quran came in stages to make it easier for the Sahaba to memorize and to preserve. Because Don't forget, most of them could not read and write me on

00:18:19--> 00:18:40

therefore that memorizes I had so I became in stages it came easier to memorize and then teaches you also my brothers if you want to memorize the Quran, don't kill yourself and try to memorize it all in a month. So can happen. Have a program for yourself? Just do one page a week. one page? It is you got to stick to your program. That is it. If you can't do one page half a page

00:18:41--> 00:18:48

if you rememorize half a page, half a page or one page a week, one page a week that's two and a half Exactly. Two and a half ads

00:18:49--> 00:19:16

in a year you find people year in and year out haven't even been Rogers I'm why I'm not gonna even ask now he's memorized exam. I don't want to. But I'm sure if I were to ask you'd be surprised at the answers. Why every every wouldn't memorize anything. Why are very little because we don't have programs. You need a shave, to read on and you need a program you need if you don't have that it's going to be impossible to memorize. So those are from the wisdoms of the segmented revelation also

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

in

00:19:20--> 00:19:35

the Quran dealt with problems as they arose therefore some that were revealed when particular events would occur. And that really consolidates those eight in the mind. When that event happened, the Sahaba wanted to know what do we do a load reveal eight

00:19:36--> 00:19:59

and that makes you remember this is more. For example, when a chef masterfan Masood Rahim Allah was killed overseas inshallah as a matter what no zircaloy you don't testify on behalf Sharla we hope he was a lot of people asking do we pray a little janessa here on him on a satellite, right? The pray and Abyssinia do we pray or not?

00:20:00--> 00:20:35

Iran Prime Minister, hey, that's the opinion. The machines and the people of knowledge came and told the people know the Shahid is not preyed upon. Now that the machines come with new revelation, know that those ahaadeeth were already there, but they just bought them to light. Therefore they dealt with the problem as it arose. And then the people Oh yes, it's as if it was the first time they heard it. At first they learnt it. Thus, the Sahaba would learn this muscle, and the oma would learn the muscle as those events would occur because the revelation will clarify, that's very important. That's from the wisdoms wisdoms of segmental revelation. And the last point number six, an

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

indication of the current source.

00:20:39--> 00:21:22

The fact that the Quran would come to deal with problems as they arose and so forth. It shows you the Quran was not the word of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, they'd come to deal with events that come to do with events. It wasn't as if the prophet SAW Selim secretly wrote everything in a cave near higo. But it dealt with issues and predictions of the future as time went on, and suparna llama brothers with time, right as time goes on, claims either become less valid or more valid, right? claims over time they become less valid or more valid, for example, a lie over time what's gonna happen, exposed truth is gonna come out over time, the truth but becomes more valid

00:21:22--> 00:21:38

over time. Over time, what has happened to the Quran less valid or more valid, more valid? Despite our technological advancements, it's only proved the Quran to be true even further. It's only confirmed upon a lot because those details of sides are found in the Quran.

00:21:39--> 00:21:42

You can't find fault in the Quran with hamdulillah

00:21:45--> 00:21:56

Okay, so that's the wisdom behind segmented revelation. And finally, the links between the first and last revelation. If you look at the beginning of the Quran, and the end of the Quran, you see an amazing connection

00:21:58--> 00:22:00

so let's look at the links now.

00:22:02--> 00:22:03

The first sort of revealed was what

00:22:05--> 00:22:07

does it mean which surah

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

Allah Allah Yes.

00:22:11--> 00:22:15

Let's start off by saying Philip is me Rob because Rob is mentioned talks about the hate.

00:22:17--> 00:22:21

The last surah revealed complete sorta

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

it's in Jerusalem as well.

00:22:26--> 00:22:29

revealed completely certain lost a lot.

00:22:31--> 00:22:40

A lot goes on to mention in that Surah faseb behind the ROB Baker Rob is mentioned as well so hey, so the first Surah Surah

00:22:42--> 00:22:45

What about the first surah literally in the Quran? What is it

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

Al Fatiha

00:22:51--> 00:22:52

how's it begin?

00:22:56--> 00:23:09

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen robeez mentioned first I in fact, it's even in the first area and go to the first I have the last sorta What's the last surah in the Quran literally. So retinas

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

as a begin,

00:23:13--> 00:23:17

pull out to be robinus Allahu Akbar again. First I had

00:23:22--> 00:23:25

less consistencies. How do you produce that in human speech? Have you be

00:23:26--> 00:23:32

the first thing you said? And the last thing you said? The first chapter you author and the last chapter you author

00:23:33--> 00:23:36

very, it's impossible. Gets Better?

00:23:37--> 00:23:43

What's the first command in the Quran where Allah says, do this or don't do this if you will read from 30 onwards?

00:23:44--> 00:23:51

The first command comes 20 if after 20 is inserted basato autolysis Yeah, you Hanna's

00:23:52--> 00:23:55

or Abu Rob become first command.

00:23:57--> 00:24:00

Allah says, enslave yourself to your rub.

00:24:01--> 00:24:05

literally go to the last command in the last solo. How does it begin?

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

law says do this.

00:24:09--> 00:24:15

Call say say what are ob? Robin bidness. Rob, last command.

00:24:20--> 00:24:22

Rob, Rob, Rob, Rob.

00:24:23--> 00:24:29

Look at this consistency. It gets better. So many consistencies from the first to the last.

00:24:31--> 00:24:36

Even from a laws of dimensions before our birth, before creation.

00:24:37--> 00:24:40

Allah asked us the question, what was it

00:24:42--> 00:24:53

good. Before our life Allah said allow us to be raw become Am I not Europe? And then when we die in the grave, what's the first question?

00:24:54--> 00:24:56

matter of book Who is your Rob?

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

Alice teaching you over and over and over

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

Rob, Rob, when he Rob, you need to think of a relationship.

00:25:06--> 00:25:10

Back when you hear teacher, you think student, Father, you think

00:25:11--> 00:25:12

son, mother,

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

daughter, employer,

00:25:17--> 00:25:19

employee, Rob,

00:25:21--> 00:25:33

doesn't master and slave. So if someone asked you summarize the revelation for me, summarize Islam. Allah is that up, I'm that he's the master, I'm the slave.

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

Because does the slave do what he wants? What is master ones? What is Master? In other words to do what Allah wants. That's the meaning of Islam. At least Islam I submit, I do what you want your Lord I've given up I submit my will to That's the meaning of Islam, that Allah is the master.

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

And we have the slaves.

00:25:57--> 00:26:01

It took five minutes to explain, but a lifetime to implement.

00:26:03--> 00:26:21

And that's why many people will accept a lot of being a god and Almighty, merciful. they'll accept all of that. But what would they accept? They won't accept a love being the master, because that means that other slaves that don't want to give up their desires No, no, no, no, I can't. On my own King on my own master, I'm the master of my domain. Now no one tells me what to do.

00:26:22--> 00:26:45

I won't accept that. If you accept the law as the master it means you're the slave. In other words, you have to do what he wants to know what you want. We ask Allah azza wa jal to make us true slaves to Allah azza wa jal Amen. So that is the summary of the revelation no clan, perfect summary for the end of the term as well. hamdulillah so panic alone will be Hambrick Masha Allah, Allah inland, Mr. Furukawa tunic
