Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah I should have Olivier will say that more serene while early he was so happy Jemaine provide.

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 sallallahu wasallam, 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

to be given to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he is 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 ayat that were given directly to the Prophet salallahu alayhi Salaam by the angel Gabriel Ali Salim I caught up with some Arabic Allah, Allah, 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 used to go to a place which was a way 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 you can you can go there now, if you like, and it's quite stressful is very, is 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--> 00:02:00

Upon reaching that you can overlook muck and you can see really what is going on

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

in the city and surrounding parts of Mecca. The Prophet alayhi wa sallam would go then time 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 Rahim Allah, states in one of the beginning, beginning of Messiah, that the Prophet sallallahu it said, we'll go to the cave of hell. And he would worship Allah penalty it would ponder over the creation pond over the Grand View and the magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala.

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

I showed her the 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 or good or 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, of being on his own, was made beloved to him. And so he would isolate himself in the cave of Hara, 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 sell them 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 showed the Alona rhodiola when he informed us that this was at the beginning of the revelation used to come in a form of a dream. And this is before the angel jabril Elisa Lam, 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 through one's heart, when one's heart opens up, and one soul becomes purified,

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

and perhaps will allow them to hikma the wisdom behind the Prophet sallallahu Sallam receiving this revelation in asleep before receiving

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

the revelation from God Elisa aim 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 O'Hara

00:04:24--> 00:04:30

that the angel jabril that he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:04:31--> 00:04:45

and he said to him, he cannot read. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he answered an avocado. But I am not those who read ayah that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was illiterate, didn't read or write.

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

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then explain to us later on that. The angel jabril la ceram he grabbed me he embraced me with such a strong embrace that I became very fatigued.

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

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 jabril SLM, released him. And then for a second time, he said, he caught up.

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

And likewise the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Man, I'd be hard. I'm not one who reads, and again for a second time, he was embraced very tightly, by the angel jabril.

00:05:28--> 00:05:31

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

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

that is the angel jabril 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 jabril la sallam, he revealed the first five five ayat from the Quran. I that was the first of the revelation.

00:05:55--> 00:06:13

When jabril la sala Mr eco Bismillah ikura Bismillah beacon lady Holla Holla call in Sir, I mean Allah, a call or a book, a column, under the unnamable column, allemaal, insurnace, lemmya alum, these five is

00:06:14--> 00:06:30

read in the name of your Lord, who has created all that exists. He has 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 this is revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam I shall not be alone her, 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 shadow the alarm was not present here. But she's relating or she's relaying the story, because she heard it from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.

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

So she so he sallallahu alayhi Salaam returned to his home where Khadija or the Allahu anhu 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 melanism merely 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 sallallahu Sallam was was feeling like this. And bearing in mind what had happened to him here. It is something that he Salallahu Edison 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 rhodiola rhodiola Juana she reminded him and consoled him. And she said to him, law 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 that you give to people, what nobody else is able to give them in terms of benefit and good luck 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 sallallahu wasallam have 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 right, just 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 sallallahu is 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 a loss of penalty either, as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to us

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

the humble Omen a patella

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

If a loss or penalty Allah that He loves the people that he will test them are no doubt that this was a patina. This was a test for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Upon hearing this, that and noticing this, that howdy God Allah on her

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

that she said that she would take the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, to the cave of Alhambra referred often to see her cousin, she would take the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, to see her cousin, wakatipu nofal.

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

Now, what aka

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

rhodiola Han, who 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 so many when he 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 there were people, some people who

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

believed. And in the original teachings, they had reached the people that they were waiting for profit, and what aka rhodiola and who was one of those people.

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

So Khadija de Lyonne, her, took the Prophet sallallahu, it was such a 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--> 00:12:01

and when the Prophet sallallahu alisson explained what had happened to what aka

00:12:02--> 00:12:08

rhodiola Nick said that and we'll just mention shortly that he ascended, he believed I was waiting

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

for this to happen, and that indeed that Mohammed Salallahu alaihe salam was the Messenger of Allah. So her choice and her decision to take the Prophet Elisa to sell them to what was the right decision,

00:12:23--> 00:12:59

which shows the importance of so many things, the importance and the role of Khadija rhodiola in her in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu I lose a limb 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 wa sallam, and that later on in his life, he sort of said 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

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

Shahada de la Han and as we know, the professor was asked, Who is the most beloved people to you? And that he sallallahu alayhi wasallam replied, Arusha.

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

She said a lot 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 her de Jara De La Nina. 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 wasallam how much he loved his wife, Heidi, God align her. So it shows the importance of

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

what God God align 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 aka

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 an most and most referring to jabril or SLM. This is the same one who came to deliver ye 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 Jabba Abdullah are on the line who said that when he was when the Prophet sallallaahu, Edison was asked about what a particular nofal the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I saw him in the middle of the agenda, and upon him was some silk closing.

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

So we know that what aka 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 what

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

What what what a karate Lauren who

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

said that

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

jabril and he could have been a moose is the one who came to you is 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--> 00:16:09

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 Mohammed sallallahu 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 am alive when that day of yours comes, I will indeed support you and help you a great deal. This particular Hadith is in Al

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


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


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

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

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

After receiving these first five aid from SOTA, Alok ikara, Bismillah Caleta Allah, that there was a federal law, that there was a gap between the receiving of this revelation until the next receiving of the next sending of the next set of Revelation, which was the edge from sort of a death here. There was a gap between them. Now 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 allowed to have different opinions, some of them

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

and many of the scholars, that is a strange opinion, to say that there was a gap of two or three years, this is a strange opinion. Well, that is 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, one low atom. However, however, even harder, a scholar and he Rahim Allah, He said that the letting up or the pause of revelation means that it stopped coming down for a period of time. And the reason why this happened will lower them was to allow enough time for that fear that the Prophet sallallahu ederson 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 subhana wa Tada.

00:18:03--> 00:18:52

So there was a period or there was a time when there was a gap. Well, lo, exactly to what that was. But then after that, the revelation began continuing with a human death. Now the scholars and is the last point that we mentioned in sha Allah, that upon the receiving of the revelation, Ico Bismillah byculla, the haluk here, and the result, Allahu Edison was chosen as an abbey 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 an Abbe a prophet and our soul, a messenger, they said that there are differences between them from those differences is that a messenger is commanded to stand and to go

00:18:52--> 00:19:16

out and to propagate and to convey to his people, whereas an A B is not, he receives revelation, and maybe he sent amongst the people who will be in agreement with him, whereas a Rasool a messenger may be sent to people who will treat him as an enemy. So upon receiving the first revelation from Alok he was chosen as an AVI

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

and upon receiving Yeah, are you helmet Deaf here? Oh Mohammed envelope in garments come for over here is a command from Allah penalty alien a a number to arise and wound.

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

He now Salalah hasn't 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--> 00:20:00

early stages of Revelation, and Charlotte Allah the next class will begin talking about the early stages of Revelation and the early call, and how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began

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

Talking to and conveying and propagating this revelation to the closest people to him was a lot of Solomonic and Mohammed won early he was a big man Solomonic.
