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

The time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. There were two times when where he stopped coming from Allah subhanho wa taala. And I want you to put yourself for a moment in the shoes of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Here you have a connection with Allah. Allah is communicating with you. Via Jabra elite you sit down, and all of a sudden when the where he stops, what is the very first thing that is going through the mind of Ross was a Salem? Has Allah left me who I'm all alone left. And there are times where people even at that time began to even mockers wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now where is the revelation from Allah subhanho wa taala. So there were

00:00:42--> 00:01:19

two times this happened and some ornaments say that it happened three times. If you take sort of half into consideration, but the first two times that happened was after the very first one he went, it could obviously be smell because of the HELOC came down. This were the very first five ayat of surah Allah that came down and the province of Saudi he went back home he was talking to her these are the Allahu anha and Hadith I was consoling us allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you are such a noble man, Allah will never forsake you. You look after the needy and the poor, just like you look after them. Allah will look after you don't not be worried. And she's there, consoling us,

00:01:19--> 00:02:04

Lhasa Allahu alayhi wa sallam. And then not only that, but then she took us while salaam to her cousin Warabi Nofal. And what acaba NOFA says something interesting at that time, he said that if I am alive long enough to see you become a prophet, then I will become a Muslim and I will follow you. Now why would he say something like that? Because the fact that it Quran Bismillah Arabic Allah, Allah came down is a sign that Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to keep this communication process open with Rasulullah, Salah Salem. But at this point, by the way, at this point, he was all told that he has to go and warn everyone. He was not told that he has to go and spread the message. It

00:02:04--> 00:02:46

was just a message that came down from Allah subhanho wa taala. And that is why after this first revelation, there was no revelation that came. And it was during this time that what are the what are called be Nofal he passed away. And it was after these I mean, some of them I say that it was two, three years. That's a really far fetched idea. If you think about the years in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, many other Allah ibn alabaster. The Allahu Anhu says that this period of time where there was no Wi Fi that came down from Allah was approximately a month to 40 days. But after that, and within this time, within this time, the Prophet saw something he would go

00:02:46--> 00:03:30

back to Djibouti node, and he will go there because that is where he had that first amazing experience of his life. That is where he received the very first ayat of the Quran, and then he will go there and just, you know, he's trying to find a way that how can Allah subhanho wa taala. Again, communicate with me. And then it has said that one time as Rasulillah Salam is coming down the mountain, he hears O Muhammad. And when the Prophet alayhi salam looks above, he sees Djibouti salaam, in his in his true form, and as soon as he sees him in his true form, he is shaken with fear and he runs back to Khadija the Allahu anha. And that is where some alumni say that this is where

00:03:30--> 00:04:12

the very first if you are Muslim, and will reveal you and more deaths that were revealed. And that is when because when Yeah, you hit him with death It is revealed that is when he becomes a prophet because Allah is telling him yeah, you no more death, it all stand up for undead and go and war people not from from this point going forward, you have to go and warn mankind. So that is when he became officially like a prophet or a messenger where he has to now spread the message. So this was a very first incident. The second incident is where this happened also an early Mecca where there was again another period where Allah subhana wa Taala was not sending any way. And at that time

00:04:12--> 00:04:52

Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he felt that has Allah let go of me, has Allah forsaken me? Is Allah have set with me? Why isn't there any message coming coming my way. And at that time, there are many things that were in the mind of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down and there was by the way, a woman where the prophet Allah you some he was sent up every single night for 200 This was the nature of all the Gambia, all Gambia would wake up for something tahajjud Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was no different. But there was a time where for two three days it is mentioned in the Hadith that he did not wake up. And there was a

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

woman who came to Proverbs A Salam and she says that perhaps your demons because they felt that the fact that the prerelease time

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

was saying, I receive ye from Allah subhanho wa Taala they did not understand it as well he, they were saying that you have been, you know, you have been manipulated. And there is a demon there is no way that's coming to you, but rather there are demons are coming to you. So when the providing some was not waking up for one for one or two days, this woman came and she said that finally looks like your demons have left you mean that you're starting to act more like a human being. And once again, when these kinds of words were being conveyed to the Prophet SAW Selim, when they're being said to the Prophet alayhi salaam, again, it only reinforces the anxiety of the Prophet sallallahu

00:05:37--> 00:06:28

alayhi wa salam, to which then sort of sort of Doha was revealed by Allah subhanho wa taala, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says what Doha he swears by the Doha de de, before noon, which means that as soon as the sun appears from behind the horizon, that is called Blue ha, that's why we pray salted Doha because the sun the sun has come from behind the horizon. It was dark. And when we talk about darkness from a metaphorical perspective, it means grim it means glimmer, it means I mean, it means where you know a person can feel hopeless, and that is that time that's what usually darkness is metaphorically used as, and then when the sun and light comes from behind the horizon, it means

00:06:28--> 00:07:11

usually hope that's coming from ALLAH SubhanA what the Allah so Allah is saying that imagine it was a dark night, Rasul Allah, someone's going through a very dark time in his life, and then the sun comes from behind the horizon. And that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala then says, ma what the ICA rabuka Woolmark Allah, if you're under this impression that Allah has left you ma what the aka Allah has not. Allah has not said a widow or to you. Allah has not you know said goodbye to you. That's not the case over here. And then one mark Allah and Allah subhana wa Taala is not upset. So behind Allah the Allah they say that if you look at this word, what the ICA what that is the verb calf at

00:07:11--> 00:07:55

the end of the verb is in reference to Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so the ALMA they say that it was appropriate if Allah were to say, my what Dhaka Allah did not say Allah we doubt to you, okay, and warmer, Paula, and he is not upset with you. But that's not what, that's not what Allah subhanho wa Taala said, because if anyone said Palaka the word Allah here means being upset. The fact that Allah didn't even use upset with you with me with Ross was Salam is because this idea of being upset with Roswaal Salaam is completely unimaginable. That's why Allah didn't even use the word calf. In this word, Woolmark Allah, He could have said Calaca but that's not what Allah

00:07:55--> 00:08:33

subhanaw taala said, because Allah wants to give the message to the Pavarotti salaam, that he is this idea that you have that Allah is upset with you is a very far fetched idea. Don't even think about the fact that Allah is upset with you. So this was another time in life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that again, Allah is removing the anxiety of the Prophet it is Salam. Now the question is, why do I mention these two stories? What's the connection between these two stories? Once again, in both stories, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam feels that he has he's all alone by himself. And both stories Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam feels, there is no

00:08:33--> 00:09:11

hope. And both stories Roswall someone's feeling or is asking himself, when will Allah subhanho wa Taala again, send his help and his Nusrah and or when when when will he send down His message that is was going through the mind of Roswell Salem, there's a certain level of anxiety that is going in the heart of the Prophet sallallahu ala he was setting him just like today, you and I, we are in this situation where we hear about a buzzer every single day. Every single day we turn on our phones we see children being killed. Yesterday, I saw so many children who have lost legs. I saw children who have lost hands and now they're going to have to live like this for the rest of their life and

00:09:11--> 00:09:48

so forth. And when you see these kinds of situations, you're wondering you have this anxiety. When is ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala bring his no saw more and more. When is ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala going to do more? When is this situation going to change? We all go through this anxiety and Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, he went through this anxiety in a similar way. When is the health of Allah subhanaw taala going to come? When is the message going to come from Allah subhanho wa taala? When are things going to turn around? When is it going to go back to normal like in the case of the province as salam normal means where that that where he is coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala as Muslims were saying,

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

When are we going to go back to normal when things are more peaceful than what it is right now? And we have to understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala and the following sunnah after Surah Surah what the HA

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

So the Insha Allah, Allah says this is the Promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala for enamel rowsley Yusra ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala says, With difficulty is help with difficulty comes the Nusra of ALLAH SubhanA wa taala. And by the way some people have translated this as that after the after the difficulty comes, comes ease that's wrong for inna Ma Ma means that with mean that while you're going through the difficulty, you're already in the process, Allah subhanaw taala has already put the wheels of ease in motion, he has already started the process of ease, he has already started that process of ease. So that is why for in nama I lost the Yusra in nama I lost it you saw and not

00:10:52--> 00:11:34

only that, but there are many verses where Allah subhanho wa Taala is reminding Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that do not ever feel like Allah subhana wa Taala has forgotten. Allah remembers Allah knows. So Meriam Surah Maryam was revealed in Makkah. In Surah Maryam there is a verse Allah says one man that xs zu iLab Amira robic Lahoma Boehner ad Now why am I 100 fanner Why am I being a Dalek? Allah subhanho wa Taala is in control of everything. Now who am I being ad now? Am I qualified now what's in front of us was behind us? We're gonna be in a Dalek and what's between Allah subhanaw taala has knowledge of everything. But then the last part of the verse will Allah He

00:11:34--> 00:12:17

provides a lot of peace to a person. Allah says, Well, my current rabuka NESEA Allah does not forget, your Lord does not forget. What about the times I've been through in my life when I had to see these kinds of things. One can rob who can see your Lord has not forgotten. What about the time when the oppressors were just, you know, bombarding? bombarding? bombarding? Well, my kinda rabuka See, yeah, what about the times when people were saying negative things about me? What am I gonna rabuka see? Yeah, what about the time I was going through anxiety when my Acana rabuka Sia, the reason why I keep on saying this and the reason why Allah says in the Quran, go back to the Quran is

00:12:17--> 00:12:59

because we find these kinds of ayat and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says in the footsy, the answer on NACA Wello by the Hayden, he says in a hadith that I will help, I will come my aid will come it will come to you, when oh, by the hand and it may be after some time, because during this time, Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to see at times, who are the genuine ones, and who are who are the ones who are not genuine, who are going to stick with Allah subhanho wa Taala going to show their loyalty to Allah subhanho wa Taala and who are those who are going to leave their Deen. This is why this is called a fitna. This is why these times that we're going through or call the times of fitna, what is going to

00:12:59--> 00:13:41

happen later on. As we get closer to the day of judgment. They're called the fitness of the Day of Judgment. Why? Because during these eras during these events, they're going to be many people who are going to leave their Deen, but they're going to be many people who are going to make their faith even stronger than what it was before. And as you all know, I'm sure you've heard this before, when we talk about a fitna fit that is in reference to the purifying process of gold, when you put gold inside, when you put gold inside the oven, and where it begins to melt the gold. At that time, there are the dust particles that are mixed in with the gold that falls off and what you come when you

00:13:41--> 00:14:26

pull it out, what you see is pure gold, when you put it inside, when you put it inside, it is it is gold that has mixture with dirt and so forth. But when you pull that when you pull it out, it is pure gold meaning that whatever are the dust particles, they fall out that entire process in Arabic is called the is called a fitna. So that is why even in our in our context, this is called a fitna, we are going through this process, in this process, there are some people who are considered as that dirt, they're going to fall off and they're going to remain in that fire. And when and then if we after this whole fifth is over, when Allah subhanho wa Taala just like in the case of the person,

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

who is the goldsmith and he's trying to purify that gold, and he pulls that goes out. And now you have pure rich and pure refined gold. That is the goal that we want to be. We don't want to be like that dirt that falls. But we want to be like that gold that no matter what, we are pure. We are genuine. That's why we are in a fitna. That's why these times are called the times of fifth of fitna, so that is why, let's remember a woman can rob Booker and see if there's anything you take from his heart today. Just this idea or the last part of this idea that your Lord

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

have not forgotten. Allah remembers everything and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada does everything based on his time. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the understanding of these things. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant a strong faith strong Iman May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us resiliency, may Allah subhana wa Taala grant our brothers and sisters and Elissa and all over the world, wherever they may be, may Allah subhanaw taala grant them strength, may Allah subhanaw taala grant them Nyssa May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant them resiliency May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant them firmness in their feet and in their faith and so forth.
