First we'll discuss, can Muhammad peace be upon him be the author of the Quran,

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

whether consciously subconsciously or unconsciously,

00:00:13 --> 00:00:18

it is rather a tragedy that

00:00:20 --> 00:00:43

a person disagrees when a person disclaims that he is not responsible for any great work, whether literally over the scientific. But this is exactly what the orientalists and the critics of Islam do when they say Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was the author of the Quran.

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

Never ever has the prophet ever claimed

00:00:50 --> 00:00:52

that he will go to the Quran

00:00:54 --> 00:00:57

not even a single word of the Quran, he never claimed it.

00:00:59 --> 00:01:11

Yet, when he disclaim that he was not the author, and the Quran happens to be a masterpiece in the work of Arabic. So Why will a person disclaim?

00:01:14 --> 00:01:18

The responsibility of a work which are the masterpiece why should he lie.

00:01:21 --> 00:01:22

And we know from history

00:01:23 --> 00:01:28

from his youth, till the day, he claimed prophethood

00:01:29 --> 00:01:40

at the age of 40 years, never has a single lie reported to have been said, by Muhammad peace be upon him, he never reports a single lie.

00:01:42 --> 00:01:44

And before he claimed prophethood

00:01:45 --> 00:01:53

he was known for his truthfulness, his honesty and yesterday and he was given the title Alameen

00:01:54 --> 00:01:57

the trustworthy by friends and foes alike.

00:01:58 --> 00:01:59

And there are several examples.

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

Even those people after the Prophet claimed prophethood

00:02:06 --> 00:02:14

and they said that he was lying, yet his enemies, his foes, they kept their valuables with the prophet for safety.

00:02:16 --> 00:02:27

And this is known when the Prophet migrated from market Medina. And he told his nephew, tell him Allah be with him, that gives his valuables to the rightful owners, even if false,

00:02:28 --> 00:02:33

even after they said he lied, yet they trusted him and kept the valuables with him why?

00:02:34 --> 00:02:58

And we have the example, that Abu Sufyan who was the chief of one of the tribes of Maccha, when he went to Emperor Heraclius, and asked him for support against the Prophet. And when the Emperor asked him that, do you know of any instance in which the Prophet lied? Or has he done any injustice and Abu Sufyan,

00:02:59 --> 00:03:04

even though he was enemy of the prophet that time, he had replied No.

00:03:05 --> 00:03:10

So why should a person with such Honesty and trust and yesterday Why should he lie?

00:03:11 --> 00:03:17

Let us analyze the various claims made by Orientalist and the critics of Islam against

00:03:18 --> 00:03:19

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon.

00:03:21 --> 00:03:23

We'll just discuss the major ones.

00:03:26 --> 00:03:34

One of the claims made by the critics of Islam is that the Prophet, he lied, that he was not thought through the Quran,

00:03:35 --> 00:03:39

and said it was Almighty God for material gains.

00:03:40 --> 00:03:43

We know that there are

00:03:44 --> 00:03:58

many men who claim to be prophets, who claim to be preachers, who claim to be saints, in order to live a luxurious life. And we have hundreds and 1000s of example, in this world today also.

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

But if we see the lifestyle of the Prophet,

00:04:04 --> 00:04:10

he led a more luxurious life before he claimed prophethood then after he claimed profiter

00:04:12 --> 00:04:13

he was married

00:04:15 --> 00:04:19

at the age of 25, to a rich lady by the name of Khadija Mela, babysitter

00:04:22 --> 00:04:26

and his life after claiming prophethood was an enviable

00:04:30 --> 00:04:50

so if it weren't for money, his life would be better after giving profited. Like we see today. Those people who claim to be prophets and saints and sages. Furthermore, we have records in several say Hadith, including the Hadith narrated by a Navi and the other Salin had this number 492 That one of his wives holiday Shambhala visitor.

00:04:51 --> 00:05:00

She said that there were times when fire was not lit in the house for a month or two

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

Whew, indicating that food was not cooked for a month or two in the house. And we only survived on dates and water, and sometimes milk given by the neighbors.

00:05:13 --> 00:05:15

There are various instances

00:05:16 --> 00:05:26

and even worse submission, the Quran, that the life was so simple, though he had all the power, he was the leader, he could have led the most luxurious life

00:05:27 --> 00:05:33

in all of Arabia. That is the reason that there was an occasion when his wives,

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

they protested.

00:05:38 --> 00:06:06

And they said that what is the need for us to lead such a life when we can live a much comfortable life? Immediately, there was a revelation send Almighty God and for Aza chapter number 33. Verse number 23, nine, read faith, that oh prophet tells you a consorts, tell your wives, if they care for the enjoyment of this world, and the glitter of this world, I will set you free

00:06:07 --> 00:06:13

to enjoy this world and give you a handsome reward. But if you care for the life,

00:06:15 --> 00:06:17

in the Hereafter, you will be rewarded

00:06:18 --> 00:06:19

in the next life,

00:06:20 --> 00:06:21

that means the wise

00:06:23 --> 00:06:33

the objective, that why should we lead such a simple life when we can lead at least a much better life and immediately they were he was revealed

00:06:37 --> 00:06:39

but naturals wives of the Prophet

00:06:41 --> 00:06:45

then death of forgiveness, and the preferred the life in the year after then this world

00:06:47 --> 00:06:57

we have the example. And that did have years of saline Hadith number 465 and 466 rather Blauman laboratory that he said that whenever the Prophet received any gifts,

00:06:59 --> 00:07:04

he never kept it for himself. Neither did he keep it for the future and he gave it away to the poor people.

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

And it is mentioned in this very same Quran in surah Baqarah Chapter number two

00:07:14 --> 00:07:41

was 279 for by Lulu Xena X to buena kitab. Ad him Soumaya coluna has been in the La Liga to be someone kalila for a long, long, marketable, add him, but you don't know me my taxable vote to those who write the book with their own hands and then say this is from Allah, this is from God, to traffic with it for a miserable price, VO to those for what the hands do right, and what they gain there from.

00:07:42 --> 00:07:47

Now imagine if the prophet would have lied that this book

00:07:48 --> 00:07:52

is from Almighty God. And when actually he was the author.

00:07:54 --> 00:08:01

There were high possibilities that one day he would have been exposed and he would be cursing himself in the same book.

00:08:02 --> 00:08:14

That woe to those who write the book with their own hands and then say this is from Allah. If he would have written the Quran and attributed to Almighty God would have ever mentioned in such a verse in the Quran.
