What a shame, what sadness what grief, overwhelms a person like the prophet (saw) when he sees his own uncles, when he sees people that have loved him his entire life and people that he loved his entire life and he’s not able to get them. Every single person that flees from his hand, sallallahu awaliy salam he wants so bad to help them.
He does not comfort himself sallallahu wasallam by looking at the wins to say the losses no longer matter but he rededicates himself to the possibility of converting those losses to wins of bringing them too. so the joy of the prophet (saw) when he sees these large groups of people was not that he could be complacent now but that it gave him hope that he could continue and that more people would come InshaAllah Ta’ala on that more people would follow, right and so in many ways.
You see an example from the messenger sallallahu alaihi wasallam of that same empathy that he had where he could not turn his face away from a child that was in poverty, that same empathy being reflected in everything else that he had. That’s part of Rahmatan Lil ‘Alamin. That’s part of him being a mercy to the world and that’s why on the day of judgement when the prophet sallallaahu alayhi wasalam has the one dua.
Waraqa Ibn Nawfal (Ra) looked at as the knowledgeable man, the one who understands scriptures. He’s the nobleman of the family. His interaction with khadiza (ra) and propthet (Saw) really predates, the incidents that we all know of, at that point Ayesa (Ra), she says in the hadith in which she mentions or where she gives some context about whom waraqa (ra) was. She says he was a man who became a Christian in the days of ignorant.
So he used to write from the Gospels in Hebrew and he would write as long as a Allah (Swt) allowed him to write. So she says and then he became an old man and helost his sight so Waraqa (Ra) became blind towards the end of his life.
When the prophet (saw) had come to him at that point he was already blind, he was in his 90s and he was already blind, okay. And this is where we have the famous incident that takes place, right .where Khadijah (ra) would take the prophet (saw) Waraqa (ra) to contextualize what had happened in hera, it was common for the people to go to Hera Cave and Khadijah (ra) has a particular relationship, the prophet (saw)has a particular relationship. and he understands especially understands what it… is what it is that would denote prophethood or denote something that is special.
Tell me what you have seen, so at that point the prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam tells him everything that he saw in the cave of Hera.
So this is Namus that Allah has sent to musa (a.s) the word Namus means the one who bears secrets and he’s referring to gibreel alehissalaam that this is gibreel alayhis-salam the same angel that Allah sent to Moosa (A.s). He actually confirms to the prophet (Saw). You are the prophet of this people.. Like i knew it was coming. You are the nabi.
Waraqa (ra) can see he knows the way that this has gone down for all of the prophets that came before including the one whom he follows Issa (a.s), jesus peace be upon he knows how this goes.
literally the last mention of Iesa (A.s) on Islam and the Quran is very beautiful. Iesa (A.s) is telling his people about the coming of the Prophet (saw).
How beautiful is it that the first person to confirm the prophethood of the prophet (ﷺ) is the last follower of Isea (A.s) in Mecca subhanAllah. The first person to tell him you are a prophet. You’re the one is following the Bushra of Issa (A.s); the glad tidings of Jesus peace be upon him and handing that off to the prophet (ﷺ).- Shaykh Omar Suleiman
If you want to be helped help others. The hadeeth I mentioned the almighty tells us through the Blessed lips of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Allah almighty continues to be in the assistance of those who continue to assist others.
It actually is the blessing within your life, the blessing, the Baraka, the contentment and over and above that on the Day of Judgment when you see the reward of it. It’s tremendous, it’s great, and you will never regret it. Charities have never depleted wealth. I have given someone from what the Almighty has given me and because I’ve decided it’s going to happen regularly. The Almighty has written their sustenance somewhere within mine.
A man comes to the messenger peace be upon him complaining about his brother.
We have in our families. We have brothers and so on the wives come in mashallah, all of them are lovely but you must remember each one has had a different upbringing. If brother and sister cannot see eye to eye what do you expect when the in-laws come in and so many.
So the brother comes and he says o Messenger my brother’s doing nothing. I’m spending on him. I’m giving him money. I’m giving him his monthly expense and I’m actually taking care of him and now I’m tired of this and I don’t know how long this is going to carry on and so on.
Doesn’t this happen in some of our families I mean you know in the extended families?
Sometimes in some homes the wife comes in and she says hey are you gonna keep on giving this guy, you know, subhanAllah? And that’s where the brother has to chip in and say hey that’s my brother, leave me alone. She might argue and say well you know fifty percent of everything you have you know is arguably mine? subhanAllah so I have a 50% say.
It does happen that we tend to get irritated even on our own sometimes. Do you know what? The prophet (saw) responded to this man guess what he said? Powerful words: perhaps you are getting money because you’re spending on him la ilaha ilallah.
But Allah (swt) warns us about spending in a foolish way even if it is a charity. allah tells us you know don’t be miserly and don’t even give so much that you’re giving necessity that’s yours. you need to strike a middle path. – Mufti Menk
Who would be the #best described By #Rasulullah (saw) #MuftiMenk
#MuftiMenk Cleared Up A Great #Misconception Regarding #Islam
The books of #Hadeeth were compiled hundreds of years after the death of #ProphetMuhammad (pbuh). In the lecture #MuftiMenk explains the reason behind delaying in #hadith recording & #compilations and how all imams took great care regarding collecting hadith. He mentions different incidents of IMAM AL-BUKHARI while collecting hadiths to maintain its purity and authenticity. Mufti Menk presents the tips by which how authentic hadith can be determined by following the chain of hadith narrators as hadith was recorded in a sophisticated manner in this video clip.
In this video clip #MuftiMenk reminds us that we have a lot to learn from the #Sahaba radiallahu anhum (the #companions of #Rasulullah sallAllahu alayhi wa salam we need to bear in mind that these companions were chosen by Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala. He chose them for many reasons and divinely. He obviously knows that there will be rules and regulations that will be sent down over a period of 23 years and a strong crop of men whose faith is solid are needed in order to set the first example.
The sacrifices of the companions of the prophet Muhammed (saw) inspires us how they were steadfast on the Deen during adverse situation through their two qualities:- Listening and Obeying Immediately and we should follow a path to tread upon especially when we’ve seen that they are successful so the most successful of all the #Muslimeen from the #Ummah of Muhammad sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam in the earth and the #hereafter.
