Hi, as a thank you very much for answering all the questions for your patience. It's very, very helpful. I just have another question. And the first verse that was revealed to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was a Keira bismi kya. Read in the name of your Lord, who created. Now the question is, if the angel Gabriel said to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him that read in the name of your Lord, right? one scenario could be that he was reciting. And he was asking proper moment to peace upon him to recite after him. Yeah. But the answer of the Prophet peace be upon him was, I cannot read right now, that shows that the angel was actually showing him something which was

00:00:50--> 00:01:37

written, because if he was just repeating, if the angel was just saying something, and was just asking the prophet to just recite after him, it doesn't require the prophet to know how to read or write. Yeah, it's just repeating. Yeah, so that means it was actually something written that the angel was wanting the prophet to read, and hence his reply was that I can't read. Yeah, so but we know that the Quran was not written. It was later that it was compiled into a form of a book. But the first sentence kind of suggests that there was something written at the first place. So what do you suggest? And this was a question that when the first word was revealed, Accra, the prophet said,

00:01:37--> 00:01:57

Man, I Buhari, I'm not learned, I cannot read. So he's assuming that that means something written was shown. It's not a must. For example, if there's a person here, even if I tell him that read, even if I don't show him something, he will say that I am illiterate or I cannot read. It's not necessary. I have to show him something. Fine.

00:01:58--> 00:02:29

It may be it may not be, it's not a must. And I'm asking someone to do something that I have to show something. I can just say why don't you read? It's not much that I should show him something. So a person who cannot read may voluntary come and say that I cannot read. It's not necessarily Okay, show me what to read. Or this thing. This thing I can't read. So even if you don't show me when I cannot read the Word of you showing me that thing. If someone tells me read Japanese, I cannot read and not say okay, where is it? Show me when is Japanese?

00:02:31--> 00:02:37

If you tell me brothers Aki read Japanese, as What did he tell me Japanese is accurate in Japanese? Correct.
