Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Ashraful, a VA will say that it was serene while early he was so happy Jemaine without.

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

So up until now we've taken

00:00:25--> 00:00:29

the majority of the life of Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam before revelation.

00:00:31--> 00:00:31

And now

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

about 35 years or so, as we know that the revelation started, or began,

00:00:41--> 00:00:45

began to be given to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, he's about 40 years old.

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

Now, before the actual receiving of the Revelation, there was a time

00:00:52--> 00:01:13

when I'm talking about the receiving of Revelation, I am talking about the eight that were given directly to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam by the angel Gabriel Ali Salam I caught up Bismillah Becca, Lady Haluk, there are some important incidents or things for us to know concerning the lead up to this particular event.

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

And that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

in a period of time before

00:01:22--> 00:01:55

that receiving of Revelation, he used to go to a cave, he used to go to a place which was away from Makkah. It wasn't around the city area, but it was a good distance away. And from that cave, which was you know, you needed to climb quite high up I mean, you know, there are times and you can, you can go there now if you'd like, and it's quite stressful is very, it's a big undertaking to go to that particular cave might take, you know, an hour or so to climb up to get there.

00:01:56--> 00:02:08

Upon reaching that you can overlook muck and you can see really what is going on in the city and surrounding parts of Makkah. The Prophet alayhi salam would go there and at times spend maybe days at a time.

00:02:10--> 00:02:15

And there he would reflect, and he would ponder over many things.

00:02:16--> 00:02:35

And Emmanuel Buhari rahamallah. states in one of the beginning, the beginning of Sofia, that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam will go to the cave of Hara, and he would worship Allah subhanaw taala, who would ponder over the creation pond over the Grand year and the magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:02:37--> 00:02:40

Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu narrates that

00:02:41--> 00:02:56

the first form of revelation that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was initiated with was that a good or a true dream that he would see in his sleep. And every dream that he saw became realized, like the light of the morning.

00:02:58--> 00:03:24

And then after that, solitude, or being on his own, was made beloved to him. And so he would isolate himself in the cave of Herat, where he would worship Allah subhanaw taala for a number of nights, before returning to his family, only then to get more provisions because he had run out of provisions Elisa to Sudan food and drink to stock up if you like, and then go back, go back to the cave.

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


00:03:29--> 00:03:42

I shall not be alone. Her Radi Allahu Anhu informed us that this was the beginning of the revelation used to come in a form of a dream. And this is before the angel Jabril or SLM bow before he came with the beginning ayat of surah Allah.

00:03:45--> 00:03:52

So, what is meant here by a good dream is true one's heart, when one's heart opens up and one soul becomes purified.

00:03:54--> 00:04:04

And perhaps wallow Island hikma, the wisdom behind the Prophet sallallahu Sallam receiving this revelation in his sleep, before receiving

00:04:05--> 00:04:13

the revelation from Djibouti la CERAM was to prepare him no doubt, for the great undertaking of receiving this revelation.

00:04:15--> 00:04:23

So this essentially what happened. And then, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on one occasion was in the cave of will Hara

00:04:24--> 00:04:45

that the angel Jibreel that he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said to him, eCola read. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he answered Myrna Bukhari but I am not those who read ayah that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was illiterate, did not read or write.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then explain to us later on that the angel Jibreel SRM he grabbed me or embraced me with such a strong embrace that I became very fatigued

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

ached and very tired over the

00:05:03--> 00:05:13

embracing at a point that he thought he was going to pass out and then the angel Jibreel SLM released him. And then for a second time, he said, Ikara

00:05:14--> 00:05:26

and likewise the Prophet sallallahu sallam said Ma and I because I'm not one who reads, and again for a second time, he was embraced very tightly, by the angel Jibreel.

00:05:28--> 00:05:32

And then, again for a third time, he said, ACARA

00:05:33--> 00:05:39

that is the angel Jibreel and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was then embraced, squeezed for a third time.

00:05:40--> 00:05:41

And then he released me.

00:05:42--> 00:05:53

Then Gibreel ra Salam, he revealed the first 558 from the Quran. i That was the first of the revelation.

00:05:55--> 00:06:30

When Gibreel alayhi salam he said Ikara bismi Arabic is a corrupt Bismillah beacon lady Holla Holla call in certain Amin Alok a Korra, or a Bukal Ekrem Allah the Allameh will column allemaal insert nama la mia alum, these five iron, read in the Name of your Lord who has created all that exists, He is created man from a clot read and your Lord is the Most Generous, who has taught by the pen? He has taught man that which he knew not.

00:06:31--> 00:06:55

So when these eight will reveal to the Prophet sallallahu ala he was salam. Aisha Radi Allahu anha she narrating the story said that his heart was trembling, and the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned to his home. Now, I shudder the alarm was not present here. But she's relating or she's relaying the story, because she heard it from the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam.

00:06:57--> 00:07:12

So she so he sallallahu alayhi salam returned to his home where Khadija or the Allahu anha was waiting for him. And when he went there, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the first thing that he said to her was to cover ME The ME loonies a Milani cover me cover me.

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

And so he was covered.

00:07:16--> 00:07:46

And this is a natural reaction, that when somebody is almost in a state of shock, or in a state of extreme fear, that they will need to be consoled and that they may feel cold. So they will want to be covered by something. So it is a completely normal reaction that the Prophet salallahu Salam was was feeling like this. And bearing in mind what had happened to him here. It is something that he SallAllahu added some had never experienced before. And

00:07:48--> 00:07:54

the feelings or the fear that he was having at this time, was something that none of us can really imagine.

00:07:56--> 00:08:01

Now, when this was said to him, he said I fear for myself it was something very strange. He didn't know what was happening he feared.

00:08:02--> 00:08:44

However, Khadija Radi Allahu Radi Allahu Anhu she reminded him and consoled him. And she said to him, Leia will Law never by Allah, will Allah subhanaw taala forsake you, for you join the ties of family relation, the first thing that she mentioned, that you keep up the ties of the family, and that you bear the burdens of the week, and you give to people what nobody else is able to give them in terms of benefit and good o'clock and good manners and your hospitality in in entertaining guests, and that you help people who are afflicted with calamities.

00:08:45--> 00:08:49

So here it is that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam had gone through a very

00:08:50--> 00:08:51

dramatic ordeal.

00:08:53--> 00:08:59

How do you draw the line her reminded him that there was no need to be fearful, there is no need to worry.

00:09:01--> 00:09:09

And she actually mentioned the good actions and the righteous actions that he did. And because of those righteous actions, because of that good that he did,

00:09:11--> 00:09:34

he should not feel abandoned, or should not feel any fear of anything. Because Allah subhanaw taala will not forsake you and likewise for us, for the believers for the Muslims that if they do righteous deeds, they do good deeds, they fear Allah subhanaw taala then they should never think that Allah subhanaw taala will forsake them. Because if you uphold

00:09:36--> 00:09:57

the things that the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam upheld, in being good to your family members, helping other people being a benefit to society, having good manners, then if you are tested with any matter, don't ever think that Allah subhanaw taala will forsake you rather Allah subhanaw taala as the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said to us,

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

the habila Coleman a patella

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

If Allah subhanaw taala did he loves the people that he will test them? Or no doubt that this was a Tiburtina. This was a test for the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam. So Upon hearing this, that and noticing this, that hadith Radi Allahu anha

00:10:18--> 00:10:35

that she said that she would take the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to the cave of Al Hara, Rafa, often to see her cousin, she would take the Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam to see her cousin Wanaka tip Nofal.

00:10:36--> 00:10:38

Now, what aka

00:10:39--> 00:10:45

Radi Allahu anhu, was a person at that time who had become a Christian.

00:10:47--> 00:11:09

However, he was, like many people at that time, not to say many wasn't that many, but there were a few individuals who are waiting for a prophet to appear. Because this was mentioned in the revelation from the people of the book, that there would be the coming of a new prophet, and that they will people, some people who

00:11:10--> 00:11:21

believed, and in the original teachings that had reached the people, that they were waiting for profit, and what occur are the Alon who was one of those people.

00:11:22--> 00:11:30

So Khadija line her, took the Prophet sallallahu, ala was sudden her beloved husband, to see to see her to see her cousin.

00:11:31--> 00:11:39

Now this shows the great wisdom that Khadija the line that she possessed, that she had in not only consoling her husband,

00:11:40--> 00:11:56

but also finding a solution for her for him as a finding a solution. But finding solace in some further guidance on the matter. That in her view, the most knowledgeable person or the most suitable person to go and see now was what aka

00:11:57--> 00:12:08

and when the Prophet sallallahu Ellison explained what had happened to what occur. What are the Lynette said that, and we'll just mention that shortly that he ascended, he believed and was waiting

00:12:09--> 00:12:21

for this to happen and that indeed that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam was the messenger of Allah. So her choice and her decision to take the Prophet Elisa to salaam to what I thought was the right decision,

00:12:23--> 00:13:07

which shows the importance of so many things, the importance and the role of Khadija Rhodiola and her in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, that from the very beginnings of the revelation, she was there as a source of strength that she was there as an advisor. She was there as a supporter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, and the later on in his life, he said to Salam, that in the medina period, and for the rest of his life, he would always have an attachment and think about his wife Khadija Radi Allahu Anhu to the extent that Aisha Radi Allahu Han, and as we know, the Prophet alayhi wa sallam was asked, Who is the most beloved people to you? And that he

00:13:07--> 00:13:10

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied, Aisha.

00:13:13--> 00:13:29

She said are the Allahu Anhu that I have in the presence of the other wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam I'm not jealous of any other wife more than I am jealous of Khadija Radha Lorena and she wasn't even there. She had passed away many years before that.

00:13:31--> 00:13:42

But she knew how much the NABI SallAllahu sallam, how much he loved his wife Heidi Jody line her. So it shows the importance of

00:13:43--> 00:13:49

what Khadija the line her in the support that she that she gave to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

when they went to see what occur

00:13:53--> 00:14:01

now, what aka he immediately recognized that this was revelation from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:14:03--> 00:14:18

And he said that this is a new moose. I'm also referring to Jibreel or SLM. This is the same one who came to deliver way to deliver revelation to Musa alayhis salam.

00:14:19--> 00:14:46

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke very well of what occurred, and many authentic narrations from them. That jab and Abdullah are on the line who said that when he was when the Prophet sallallahu Addison was asked about what a particular Nofal the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I saw him in the middle of the Jannah and upon him was some silk clothing.

00:14:47--> 00:14:56

So we know that what occur is from the people of Ghana because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam testified to his Eman to his belief in Him.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

So her

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

A while the rock world aka Radi Allahu anhu,

00:15:04--> 00:15:04

said that

00:15:06--> 00:15:21

Jibreel and Nicodemo no moss is the one who came to the same one who came to Musa alayhis salam. And I wish that I were a strong young man. And I wish to be alive when you're people that they will expel you from the land,

00:15:22--> 00:16:08

the Prophet sallallahu it was a little surprised that my people will try to expel me, bearing in mind, the status and the position that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam had within the people of Makkah, when there were disputes that they would go to him and that they would ask him to resolve problems. He was surprised that they would his people, that they would expel him due to this revelation that he had received. What aka he said, No man has ever come with what you have come with. Except that he has been treated as an adu, he has been treated as an enemy. And if I'm alive when that day of yours comes, I will indeed support you and help you a great deal. This particular

00:16:08--> 00:16:09

hadith is in Al Buhari.

00:16:11--> 00:16:12


00:16:15--> 00:16:21

Upon hearing this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was surprised that his people would react to him in this manner.

00:16:23--> 00:17:03

After receiving these first five aid from Surah, Al Alok, ACARA, Bismillah, Balclutha Haluk, that there was a cetera, that there was a gap between the receiving of this revelation until the next receiving of the the next sending of the next set of Revelation, which was the eighth from Surah termo death here. There was a gap between them. Now, when there was nothing absolute to state how long that gap was, was it one day? Was it two days was it one week or one month in this area that the scholars are Hamamoto have different opinions, some of them

00:17:05--> 00:17:15

and many of the scarlet letter is a strange opinion, to say that there was a gap of two or three years. This is a strange opinion. Well, lo and as a chef, strange opinion, is irregular.

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

Some other opinions are of the

00:17:21--> 00:18:01

approach that maybe it was maybe a month or two months, maybe up to four months were low item. However, however, even harder, as Kalani Rahimullah, he said that the letting up for the pause of revelation means that it stopped coming down for a period of time. And the reason why this happened, well low item was to allow enough time for that fear that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam had at the time of receiving it for the first time, to relinquish, to go away for depart for it to depart. And then for him to then long and really desire that the revelation continue knowing that it was from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:18:03--> 00:18:51

So there was a period or there was a time when there was a gap. Well, Allahu Allah, exactly to what that was. But then after that, the revelation began continuing with a URL modifier. Now the scholars and is the last point that we mentioned in sha Allah, that upon the receiving of the revelation Ikara Bismillah bakerella, the Haluk here and never use all Allahu Allah said was chosen as a newbie as a prophet. Why is this important? Well, this is important, if you like for the scholars and many of the scholars who differentiate between a nubby a prophet and a Rasool, a messenger, they said that there are differences between them from those differences is that a messenger is commanded to

00:18:51--> 00:19:16

stand and to go out and to propagate and to convey to his people, whereas an OB is not he receives revelation and maybe he sent amongst the people who will be in agreement with him. Whereas a Rasul a messenger may be sent to people who will treat him as as an enemy. So upon receiving the first revelation from Senator Alok he was chosen as a newbie.

00:19:17--> 00:19:28

And upon receiving your A you holmewood death here, oh Muhammad enveloped in government's come for envier here's a command from Allah subhanaw taala and I and number two, arise and wound.

00:19:29--> 00:19:46

He now SallAllahu wasallam had the obligation of now propagating and delivering and conveying the revelation of Allah subhanaw taala is a side point, but this is some of the nonetheless this is an important point. Concerning the

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

early stages of revelation and sha Allah Tala, the next class will begin talking about the early stages of revelation and the early call, and how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

again talking to and conveying and propagating this revelation to the closest people to him was SallAllahu Sallam Ibadan and abuna Muhammad one early he was the homepage manual Solomonic.
