In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful
The divine wisdom of the prophets’ tests:
Dear respectable brother, with this new lesson about Fiqhsera (Prophet’s Jurisprudence).But before starting this lesson's paragraphs; there should be an introduction.
Why had Allah-the all-Mighty– put the honorable prophet Yusuf (Joseph-peace be upon him) into jail? If a trustful believer for a reason or another entered the jail; then he has a great example in this prophet.
Why had Mrs. Aysha; the prophet's wife-may Allah be pleased with her-been accused in the greatest thing that a woman considers, her chastity? Any innocent woman accused in her chastity will have Aysha as a great example till the Day of Resurrection.
Why was Noah's son been miserable(infidel)?A caring father who does his best in upbringing a son, but his son chooses another path(other than the right guidance path)this extremely hurt father shall has a great example in this honorable prophet.
Why was Prophet Lot's wife been infidel? If any man suffers with a bad wife, then he has a great example in this prophet.
Why had Prophet Ayyob been afflicted with disease? If Allah has chosen to afflict any believer by a disease for wisdom from Allah, then he has a great example in this prophet.
Why was prophet Suleiman(Solomon)a king? Any man becomes a ruler over Muslims, he has a great example in this prophet regarding his justice, mercy, spreading out truth, and removing falsehood.
Why was prophet Zakareia barren? If Allah has chosen to afflict any believer by barrenness for a great wisdom, then he has a great example in this prophet.
Those Prophets are the human beings' celebrities, yet, Allah has bestowed some of them power and authority, whereas He made some sh3er weak. He gave some offspring, but He didn't give sh3er. Thus, those masters of humans whom Allah has chosen were good ideals for people.
The persecution of Muslims now:
When we consider this lesson’s paragraphs dear brother, we will highlight how badly Kuriash-the Prophet’s tribe-treated his companions and the various kinds of torment, humiliation and impoverish they used against them. Then this will ease nowadays Muslims’ suffering all over the world from oppression and severe brutal war. Therefore, you should know that the war between truth and falsehood is eternal and it is Allah's Wisdom that human beings are divided into two parties: a truthful party, and a falsehood party. A party who lives for sh3er; but on the other hand, a party whom sh3er are enslaved for it; a party owns people's hearts, and the other party controls people’s lives.
What we infer from these situations:
Respectable brother, Bukhari and Muslim narrated that Ibn Abbas said regarding Allah’s saying:
(110. Neither speak thy Prayer aloud, nor speak it in a low tone.)
“This ayah was revealed over the prophet-peace be upon him-hiding in Makkah. While he was praying as Imam with his companions reciting the holy Qura'n loudly, polytheists cursed the holy Qura'n, and cursed Allah, Thus Allah ordered his Messenger Mohammad-Peace be upon him-(( Neither speak thy Prayer aloud))i.e. in your reciting so that polytheists can’t hear it and curse the Quran, and ordered him((nor in a low voice))from your companions that they don't hear your reciting, and ordered him to:
(110.Seek a middle course between.)
Nowadays, there are people who curse this religion and accuse this holy Quran to be a book of war, killing and terrorism. History is just repeating itself. When Allah the all-Mighty says:
(33.And make not a dazzling display, like that of the former Times of Ignorance.)
What is realized from this ayah? It shows that there is another of ignorance which is more severe and tougher.
Prophet Mohammad –Peace be upon him-said:
“How about when you don't enjoin to Al- Ma'ruf, neither forbid from Al-Munkar? They replied: will this ever occur Oh Allah's messenger? He said: and harder than this will be. They said: what is harder than this? He said: How about when you enjoin to Al-Munkar, and forbid from Al- Ma'ruf? They replied: will this ever happen Oh Allah's apostle? He said: and harder than this will be. They said: what is harder than this? He said: How about when Al-Munkar becomes Al- Ma'ruf and Al- Ma'ruf becomes Al-Munkar.!"
Ibn Ishaq narrated that when the prophet-Peace be upon him- reauthord the holy Quran loudly during his prayer, polytheists broke up from him, and refused to listen. And if a man intended listen to the prophet's reciting during prayer, he would have to over hear (due to his fear from the polytheists);but if he realized that they noticed him listening to the prophet's reciting he left away and abandoned listening. On the other hand, if the prophet-Peace be upon him-lowered his voice while reciting, his companions wouldn’t hear any of his reciting. Therefore, Allah has revealed (Neither speak thy Prayer aloud) so that they wouldn’t break from you (nor in a low voice) to the limit that disables whoever wanted to listen to you without sh3er knowledge (seek a middle course between.)
When Muslims, in the early stage of Islam, used to curse polytheists’ idols, they (polytheists) cursed Allah wrongfully without knowing. Hence, Allah has revealed:
(108. Revile not ye those whom they call upon besides Allah, lest they out of spite revile Allah in their ignorance.)We realize from the three previous paragraphs that the master of creatures and the beloved of Allah (prophet Mohammad-peace be upon him) was weak and couldn't do anything, polytheists had various ways to torment and hurt his companions. So, if you were weak in a certain time and in certain circumstance, don't become very sad because our prophet was weak in a certain period of time and he couldn't find his companions, neither he could give them anything and he always told them:
(21. Say: "It is not in my power to cause you harm, or to bring you to right conduct”.)Rather more serious:
(188. Say: "I have no power over any good or harm to myself".)
(31.I had no knowledge of the unseen.)
(188.If I had knowledge of the Ghaib ( unseen), I should have secured for myself an abundance of wealth, and no evil should have touched me.)
(15." Say:" I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the torment of a Mighty Day.)Four ayahs: he doesn't know the unseen, he doesn't possess to cause you harm or benefit, neither he has power to benefit or hurt himself, and he fears if he disobeys his Lord a torment of a Mighty Day. Could any person working nowadays in the field of Islamic mission claim that he knows the unseen? If yes then he is a liar. Could he claim that he possesses the power to cause benefit or harm? If yes then he is a liar. If the master of creatures and the beloved of Allah prophet Mohammed with these great features doesn't possess this power, no one-whoever he might be–could claim possession of this power.
Who is responsible?Respectable brother, there are very accurate features: if you ask a scholar for a legal opinion (Fatwa) and he answers you according to your benefit. If you think that he is responsible for his opinion and you shall have no responsibility in the Day of Judgment! You are totally wrong If you ever manage to take a legal opinion from the mouth of the Prophet Mohammed-peace be upon him- and you are not rightful, you will not survive from torment in the Day of Resurrection. The proof is the Prophet's saying:
“Maybe some of you is far more eloquent from his opponent ; thus I made a judgment for his interest according to his saying; so whomever I've made a judgment for and the right is in any way by his opponent's side, must not take any of this right ; as if I am giving him a piece of fire” (i.e. the piece of right taken from his opponent equals a piece of fire.
Respectable brother, these are basic fundamentals of Islam. Whereas this ignorant person who drives a man in the missionary field to give a legal opinion (Fatwa) about putting money in a bank, mixing between men and women, singing, or woman's traveling without Mahram (unmarriageable person or her husband), and after that he sleeps comfortably imagining that he holds no responsibility at all and the person who made the legal opinion is responsible. Who told him so? By Allah, if you manage to take a legal opinion from the mouth of Prophet Mohammed–peace be upon him- and you are not right, you will not survive from torment in the Resurrection Day.
“Maybe some of you is far more eloquent from his opponent; thus I made a judgment for his interest according to his saying, so whomever I've made a judgment for and the right is in any way by his opponent's side, must not take any of this right, as I 'm giving him a piece of fire hell.”
Could the Prophet have a benefit or harm for himself?
It's very clear as sun-shine. Let us illustrate it again:
(31.Nor that I know the Ghaib( Unseen.)
(15.Say: " I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the torment of a Mighty Day.)
(21.Say: It is not in my power to cause you harm, or to bring you to the Right Path.)
(188.Say (O Mohammad-PBUH): " I possess no power over benefit or hurt to myself".)
This was for the prophet-Peace be upon him- who has the greatest features. Whoever shall claim what the prophet did not possess; he is then in a falsehood, astray, cheating, illusion, rather, he is stupid.
Questions proposed by the Jews to the Quraish:
Oh, brother, Kuraish has sent a group to Al-Madina led by Al-Nader Ibn Al-Harith to bring some impossible questions that has no answer from the Jewish for the Prophet to answer. The Jewish told them to ask the prophet about the lads of the cave, Zul-Qarnain, and the spirit.
(83. They ask thee concerning Zul-Qarnain.)
(85. They ask thee concerning the Spirit “of inspiration”. )
But Allah disappointed their cunning; when He revealed a holy Quran in answering their questions which assured that the prophet –peace be upon him-is receiving a righteous revelation from Allah.
(44.Thou wast not with them when they cast lots with arrows, as to which of them should be charged with the care of Mary: Nor wast thou with them when they disputed “the point”.).
For whom are allegiance and disavowal in religion?
This subject takes us to a greater issue which is the loyalty and the acquittal. Loyalty is to be loyal to believers, to like, help, support, and advise them rather than leave them neither for the enemies nor to cooperate with the enemies against them. And he is not a believer he who is not loyal to believers. A person who cooperates with the other party to humiliate believers, Allah and His messenger-peace be upon him-are acquitted from.
Jewish cooperated with Kuraish to embarrass the prophet-peace be upon him-by asking him impossible questions that he doesn't know, but the revelation answered all the questions and defeated them.
Sometimes, the realistic thing is that:
(73. And their purpose was to tempt thee away from that which We had revealed unto thee, to substitute in our name something quite different; (in that case), behold! they would certainly have made thee “their” friend!)
The new method Quraish used with the Prophet to leave his mission:Sometimes, the other party uses arousal of interest as a methodology; thus, Kuraish wanted to try this way. They sent Utbah Bin Rabi'a who said to the prophet–peace be upon him: “My nephew, you are amongst us with your highest ancestry and position and you have brought a great matter to your tribe with which you scattered their gathering. Therefore, listen to my offerings that you may accept some: if you say this thing (being a prophet with revelation) intending to gather wealth, we will gather from our money so that you become the richest of us” this is temptation. They understand nothing but according to their values, they don't understand the pure Islamic Missionary to Allah; what they understand is a mission for the sake of money, desires, and authority, as if this man (Utbah) expressed his inner-self as well as his people’s by saying: “if you say this thing intending to gather money, we will gather from our money till you become the richest; if you intend to seize honor(power, control, position, mighty,and authority) we will make you our master so that we won't do anything without your permission; and if you want to be our king we'll make you our king; and if the thing that comes to you a kind of disease that you can't fend, we will bring you the doctors and spend our money till you recover”(i.e. if you have a chronic syndrome like schizophrenia, or you want kingdom, leadership, desire or money everything is available to you on the condition that you leave this mission). When Utba ended his words; the prophet-peace be upon him-reauthord the beginning of Fussilat till he reached the ayah in which Allah says:
(13. But if they turn away, say thou: "I have warned you of a stunning Punishment (as of thunder and lightning) like that which (overtook) the 'Ad and the Thamud!".)
So brother; when Utbah heard these ayahs, as if a thunderbolt struck him. He returned to his folks telling them what he heard and added: “Mohammad's words are not poetry, magic, or priestly matter and I suggest that you leave him alone.”
And in other narrations there is an addition: “if you are in lust to women, we shall allow you to marry ten women from were ever family you choose”.
Whereas, Waleed Bin Al-Mugherah came to the prophet –peace be upon him- and listened to his reciting of the Holy Quran. Al-Waleed’s heart softened when he heard the words of the Quran. But when Abu Jahl was informed about the event, he went to Al-Waleed and told him: “Oh uncle, your folk want to gather you some money.” Waleed inquired: “Why?” Abu Jahl replied: “to give you in order not to follow Mohammad and they will give you as much as you like.”
Al Waleed said about the holy Quran: “I swear by Allah that Mohammed's saying(the Quran) is sweet and fruitful; it has deep rich roots, it rises high and nothing rises above it; it ruins whatever below it.”
Some of those who claimed prophet-hood fabricated words and claimed its attribution to Allah; such as: I swear by grinders, which grind well, and by the kneaders that knead well, and by the bakers who bake well
O Glory is to Allah! A believer feels each cell of his body that this could never be attributed to Allah, it is no more than fabricated words and lies. Kuriash gave up hope of the arousal of interest way; thus a believer doesn't give in for glittering gold neither for the severe executioners' whips. A believer, simply, is a man of a concept.
"My uncle, I swear by Allah that if they(Q uraish) put the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left hand in order to give up this Mission, I won't give it up till Allah made it victorious or I shall die fending it."
Method of intimidation used by Quraish:
The Prophet biography by Ibn Hisham says:
Then, Kuraish colored its ways(i.e. changed its strategy), and followed another way; the way of frightening. No sooner Abu Jahl heard that a man declared his Islam (if the man was honorable and belonged to an authorized family) than he went to him and blamed him for leaving the religion of his father who was better than him. Then he swore to accuse him of being insane, lessened his honor and asked people not to ask him for advice. And if the man was a merchant, he threatened him by his business stagnation, and by destroying his property. But if the man was weak they used to beat him and let sh3er treat him badly.
So, a merchant was threatened by stagnation of his business, the honorable by being ignoble, and the weak one by beating, hurting and kinds of torment. So, when all these ways failed in making the prophet-peace be upon him-give up his religion, Kuraish followed the way of transgression, and killing Muslims.
(36.The Unbelievers spend their wealth to hinder (man) from the path of Allah, and so will they continue to spend; but in the end they will have (only) regrets and sighs; at length they will be overcome: and the Unbelievers will be gathered together to Hell.)
(21. And Allah hath full power and control over His affairs; but most among mankind know it not. )
(51.We will, without doubt, help our apostles and those who believe, (both) in this world's life and on the Day when the Witnesses will stand forth.)
(47. And it was due from Us to aid those who believed.)Those who supported the prophet-peace be upon him–are in the highest Paradise, and those who declared war against him are in the trash of history and in the Lowest Hell fire.
No one should launch a war against an opponent he doesn’t know:
So, respectable brother, the person who stands against the ditch of truth is the most stupid and miserable one. Do you realize who the other party is?
(4. If ye two turn in repentance to Him, your hearts are indeed so inclined.)
Two women, Hafsah and Aisha are addressed
(4…But if ye back up each other against him, truly Allah is his Protector.)
Creator of the universe
(4…and Gabriel, and (every) righteous one among those who believe,- and furthermore, the angels - will back (him) up.)
Oh my Lord, Just because of two women ((truly Allah is his Protector, and Gabriel, and (every) righteous one among those who believe,- and furthermore, the angels - will back (him) up))
Is that possible! If two women criticized a certain reign, is it possible that the land, air and sea troops are alerted as well as economical and security authorities! What is the meaning of this ayah? The meaning is that if you ever had the thought or idea of being an enemy for truth, an enemy of Allah, an enemy of His messengers, an enemy of the righteous believers, or an enemy to a devoted scholar, then you must know who the other party is, who your opponent is: the other party and your opponent is Allah who has everything within His hands and under his control; thus the most miserable person on this earth is the one who declares war against Allah and His Messenger. He will simply end at history trash, with Pharaoh, and Qaroon and all other oppressors whom had been humiliated by Allah-the All-Mighty.
Why couldn’t Abu Jahl run down the neck of the Prophet?Respectable brother, Kuriah increased its harm to the prophet-peace be upon him-not during his secret mission but in the declaration of his mission after he was ordered by Allah to declare his religion, like praying by the Ka'aba.
Muslim narrated from the reporting of Abu- Hurairah–may Allah be pleased with him-that Abu Jahl said: “Does Mohammed cover his face with dust amongst you? He means when he-peace be upon him- genuflects. They replied: yes. He said: then: I swear by Lat and Uzza(two idols)that I will step on his neck as soon as I see him doing so, or I will cover his face with dust.”
(1. Perish the hands of the Father of Flame! Perish he! 2. No profit to him from all his wealth, and all his gains! 3. Burnt soon will he be in a Fire of Blazing Flame! 4. His wife shall carry the (crackling) wood - As fuel!- 5. A twisted rope of palm-leaf fibre round her (own) neck!)So Abu Jahl came to the prophet-peace be upon him while he was praying -as he claimed and swore to step on his neck- Abu Hurairah continued narration: they were surprised to see him stepping back and trying to fend himself by his hands. The people asked him: what is the matter with you? He replied: there is a ditch of fire, disasters and wings between me and him. The prophet–peace be upon him-said:
“If he came closer, angels would snatch his limbs one by one."
(67. And Allah will defend thee from men (who mean mischief.)
(48....for verily thou art in Our eyes.)
You must strongly believe that Allah protects you, He shall never abandon you, and that He defends you. If Allah is by your side who would be against you? But if Allah is against you who would be with you? Thus in the holy Quran Allah says:
(6. Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds, 7. In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient. 8. Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all).9. Seest thou one who forbids-10. A votary when he (turns) to pray? 11. Seest thou if he is on (the road of) Guidance?-12. Or enjoins Righteousness? 13. Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away? 14. Knoweth he not that Allah doth see? 15. Let him beware! If he desist not, We will drag him by the forelock,-16. A lying, sinful forelock! 17. Then, let him call (for help) to his council (of comrades): 18. We will call on the angels of punishment (to deal with him)! 19. Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer to Allah.!)
What the Prophet and his companions did for Islam:O brother, don't you see these painful events happen from time to time? Rather, we find it today: Muslim is fought wherever he is. He might be tormented as well oppressed, be under siege, suffer hunger, thirst and might be undressed as well, all of this:
(15. As for them, they are but plotting a scheme, 16. And I am planning a scheme.)Bukhari narrated in the connected narration to Urwah Bin Az-Zubair that he said: “I asked Abdullah Ibn Omar about the most severe action polytheists made to the prophet–peace be upon him. Ibn Omar replied: I saw that Uqbah Ibn Abi Ma'eet came to the prophet–peace be upon him-while he was praying and put his coat around the Prophet's neck and throttle him badly. Abu Baker came by then and pushed Utba away saying: Would you kill a man because he says: My Lord is Allah and bringing you clear signs (proofs) from your Lord?”
This religion which has reached us has been granted great efforts, and precious things and souls so we must never waste it. Islam reached this country by the efforts of these prophet's companions who were well disciplined by the prophet-peace be upon him. This was the way the prophet treated by.
The prophet's response to Gabriel's suggestion:
When Jibril (Gabriel) came to the prophet and told him: Oh Mohammad, my Lord has ordered me to fulfill your command, so if you wish to close the two mountains on them, I will do so. The prophet-peace be upon him- replied: No my brother, Oh Allah guide my people rightly.
He–peace be upon him-never abandoned his people; moreover, he supplicated for their guidance, apologized for their actions because they didn’t know and supplicated for them. This person, whom by his precious life Allah has sworn:
(72. Verily, by thy life (O Prophet), in their wild intoxication, they wander in distraction, to and fro.)Shouldn't we make this prophet our example? Shouldn't we feel the time preciousness as to do anything for the welfare and interest of Muslims? Lessen their worries, strengthen their position, solve their problems, help and support the weak ones, feed the hungry ones, and clothe the naked?
The prophet's relative abuse him:
Bukhari and Muslim narrated, that Ibn Masoud reported:"While the Messenger of Allah–peace be upon him-was praying by Ka'aba, Abu Jahl and his companions were sitting. A camel was slaughtered the day before. Abu Jahl said: Who of you will be the one to carry the camel's intestines and put it on Mohammed's shoulders when he genuflects."
Now, we don't suffer such sever actions, we are in a freedom of practicing religion, praise be to Allah, we are strengthened and honored: We go to mosques, listen to preach and lessons; we also pray at our houses. Our wives wear veil, no one objects us, and that is a very great blessing. We have received Islam on a golden dish. As for those honorable companions of the prophet-peace be upon him– they paid their lives and their possessions for the sake of Islam, yet we do not appreciate the great value of Islam.
Now the complement of the narration: “Then, the most miserable one of them went and took the intestines, waited till the prophet–peace be upon him-genuflected, he put it between his shoulders, he (Ibn Masoud) said: the companions of Abu-Jahl started laughing bending over one another, I was there watching them; if only I had a supporter in my folks(i.e. someone of position)I would have removed it from the back of the messenger-peace be upon him. The prophet remained in his position (genuflecting)didn't raise his head till someone hurried and told Fatima(the prophet's daughter and was a child then), who came, she removed the intestines, then headed to them calling them names. When the prophet–peace be upon him- finished his prayer, he raised his voice and made Dua'a against them. Ibn Masoud continued: and if the prophet made Dua'a Allah would answer. I swear by Allah, Who has revealed the Truth to His messenger, I saw those whom the prophet named-those whom he made his Dua'a against dead at Bader battle. Then they were dragged to the well of Bader.
And the prophet addressed them each by his name: "O you so and so, hadn't you truly found Allah's promise? Because I truly found Allah's promise for me, you disbelieved me when people believed me, you sent me away (from Makkah)when people gave me shelter. So Ibn Masoud said: O Allah's Messenger, Are you addressing dead people? He replied: you are not hearing better than them”. Where were their minds?
Once again brother, this trend in the world in treating Muslims badly, making accusation and oppression against Muslims, the siege over their countries, compulsory driving them away from some places, jailing them, tormenting them, is similar to what the prophet –peace be upon him-and his companions suffered at the beginnings of this religion; and because of their sacrifices, because of their struggle and their continuous endless effort, we received this religion, so we MUST preserve and protect it.
They even bet the prophet till he fainted, then Abu-Baker stood up and kept shouting: “O Woe you, would you kill a man because he says: My Lord is Allah?” So, they left the prophet and turned to beat Abu-Bakr. Likewise, Um Jameel (Abu-Lahab's wife) once tried to throw a stone on the prophet, but Allah protected him so she couldn’t see him passing. She also used to carry wood to put in the prophet's way as mentioned in the holy Quran:
(4. His wife shall carry the (crackling) wood - As fuel! 5. A twisted rope of palm-leaf fibre round her (own) neck! )
The mercy of Allah:
Someone while reciting Allah's saying in the holy Quran:
(43. "Go, both of you, to Pharaoh, for he has indeed transgressed all bounds; 44. "But speak to him mildly; perchance he may take warning or fear ((Allah)) ".)So he said: O my lord, if your mercy was to who had said: I'm your most high lord, then how would it be to the one who said: "Glory to My Most High Lord"? and if Your mercy to who had said:" I know not that you have a God other than me?", then how would it be to the one who said: "There is no god but Allah"?
It was mentioned in some Qudusi Hadeeths (Hadeeths attributed to Allah, on the tongue of the prophet-peace be upon him):
“Oh Dawood(David),if only those who turned away(from religion) knew My awaiting and longing for them to abandon their guilt, their limbs would be torn as a reason of loving Me, and they would die because of their longing to Me. Oh Dawood(David), this is My well regarding the turners away, but how about those who approach?!".If you obey Allah, Lord of the worlds, if you like Allah, His prophets, His book(Quran), if you like the believers, mosques, and you like doing good deeds and charities then it's a good amen.
Dear brother, the people of Kuraish gathered in the Hijr and swore by Lat, Uzza, the other third Munat, Isaf and Na'elah (names of idols they worshiped)and said: ‘if we see Mohammed we will stand against him united as one man, and we will not leave him till we kill him.’ Fatima heard their agreement and told her father who came and threw a hand-full of dust over them. Whoever caught a dust of the hand full was killed in Bader Battle on polytheism.”
Umair Bin Wahab becomes a Muslim:
Oh brother, Safwan Bin Umaiah once met Umair Bin Wahab, Umair started talking to Safwan: O Safwan, I swear by Allah were it not for children that I fear leaving without support, and were it not for chronic debts, I would go and killed Mohammed, and you will be in comfort after his death. Safwan was a bitter enemy of the prophet so he replied: O Umair, regarding your children, they are my children from now on as long as they live; and regarding your debts, it's my debts no matter how much it could reach, so go and achieve your intention (i.e. killing Mohammad), and let us feel the comfort. So Umair poisoned his sword, carried it, rode his she-camel and headed to Medinah claiming that he wants to free his captive son. When he reached Medinah Omar saw him so he said to himself: ‘this is an enemy of Allah and he came with bad intention.’ Omar cuffed him and dragged him to the prophet–peace be upon him. The prophet was so kind, he said: ‘O Omar, release his cuffs,’ so Omar did. The prophet said: ‘O Umair, come closer to me’. Umair did. The Prophet said: “O Umair greet us.” Umair said: Good morning Mohammed. The Prophet replied: “Say: Assalam Alikum”. Umair replied: It is not too long for you since you left our greeting, this is the way we greet with-his reply show a bundle of toughness. The Prophet said: “O Umair what brought you to us?” He replied: I came to set my son free. The Prophet then said: “O Umair, what about this sword hanged on your shoulder?” He replied: May Allah fight such swords (a way of cursing) that did not make any benefit during Bader Battle? The Prophet said: “O Umair, hadn't you told Safwan: were it not for children that I fear leaving without support and were it not for chronic debts, I would go and killed Mohammed, and you will be in comfort after his death”. Umair stood up stunned and said: I bare witness that you are Allah's Messenger because no one knows what happened between me and Safwan except Allah, and you his messenger.
And he became a Muslim. As for Safwan, he went daily to the entrance of Makkah receiving passengers, waiting for the good news about Muhammad's death, but he was surprised that Umair declared his Islam.
(119 Say: "Perish in your rage; Allah knoweth well all the secrets of the heart.)
(72.But Allah was to bring forth what ye did hide.)
Gabriel calms the Prophet:Ahmad narrated, that
Anas reported that Jibreal (Gabriel)-peace be upon him- came once to the prophet–peace be upon him-and he was sitting sadly, full of blood because some of Mekka's public hit him. Jibreal said: What is the matter of you? Mohammad –peace be upon him-replied: Those have done so and so to me. Jibreal told him: Would you like me to show you a sign? He said: Yes. Jibreal said: look at any tree in the valley and call it to come along. The prophet did so, the tree came walking till it reached him, Jibreal said: Order it to go back to its first place. Mohammad –peace be upon him-did so and the tree returned to its place. Allah's Messenger said: “This satisfied me” (it is a fair enough sign).
Ibn Katheer says: All the torment that the prophet–peace be upon him- suffered occurred after his uncle's death (Abu Talib).
The divine wisdom of the prophet’s hurt and affliction:Dear brother, if Allah wills (InshAllah) we will continue this in a coming lesson, but those events, this hurt, oppression, torment, denial, scorn, mocking, and insult were poured over the prophet–peace be upon him- and his companions, for Allah wants to show us that those people were capable to be responsible of the great Islamic Mission.
Dear brother, Let us be patient for Allah has promised us so many promises. Allah says:
(55. Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion - the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace: 'They will worship Me (alone) and not associate aught with Me.)
