Waraqah bin Nawfal


Last Updated on Saturday, 11 September 2021 08:52

After Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) told Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) that he met the angel, and that Allah Ta‘ala had made him His Nabi, she went to see her cousin, Waraqah bin Nawfal.  

Waraqah was very old and had become blind, but he had studied the kitaabs of the Ambiyaa of the past, so he knew about the Ambiyaa of Allah Ta‘ala. When she told him what had happened to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he said, “If you are telling me the truth, then the angel will continue to come to him, and that is the same angel who would come to Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam).”

Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) then took Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to see Waraqah bin Nawfal. After Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) explained to Waraqah what had happened, Waraqah knew that he was the true Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala. Waraqah said, “This is the same angel who would come to Nabi Moosa (‘alaihis salaam)!”

The Comfort of Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha)

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned home, after becoming the Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala, he was so worried that his whole body was shaking, and he asked his beloved wife, Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), to cover him with a blanket.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then explained to her how the angel had come, and told her that Allah Ta‘ala had chosen him to be His Nabi for all the people of the world.

The reason why the body of Rasululah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was shaking, and he was very worried, is that wahi from Allah Ta‘ala is very heavy. When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) received the wahi, he felt like his body was going to break and he thought he was going to die. In fact, the wahi from Allah Ta‘ala was so heavy that if Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was sitting on a camel and wahi came, then the camel would not manage to stand. Because of the weight of the wahi, it would have to sit down.

Becoming the Nabi of Allah


Last Updated on Saturday, 21 August 2021 15:49

As the time came close for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to become the Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala, Allah Ta‘ala began to show him true dreams. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would have a dream, and whatever he saw in the dream would happen later on exactly as he had seen it, in real life.

Allah Ta‘ala placed love for seclusion in the heart of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). This means that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) loved to be alone where he could worship Allah Ta‘ala with nobody to distract him. That is why Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would often go out from Makkah Mukarramah to the cave of Hira. He would stay alone in the cave and worship Allah Ta‘ala.

One day, when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was forty years old, and he went to the cave of Hira to worship Allah Ta‘ala, then an angel came into the cave and made salaam to him. Then the angel said to him, “Iqra” which means ‘Read!’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “I cannot read.” When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said this, the angel hugged him and squeezed him very tightly.

Pious Before Prophethood


Last Updated on Saturday, 07 August 2021 13:57

All the prophets of Allah Ta‘ala are very special people. From all the people in the world, they are the best and most pious people. Even before they became the prophets of Allah Ta‘ala, they never committed any sin and always wanted to help people and do good deeds.

Our beloved Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) became the prophet of Allah Ta‘ala when he was forty years old. Even before he became the prophet of Allah Ta‘ala, he never committed any sin. Because he was the special person who Allah Ta‘ala had chosen to become the prophet, Allah Ta‘ala protected him from committing any sins.

In the time of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the people used to worship idols and statues. Even when making tawaaf of the Ka’bah, they would pass their hands over the idols. They would also drink wine and eat haraam meat. However, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would not worship or touch the idols, and he did not eat haraam meat.

The Quraish Building the Ka’bah


Last Updated on Saturday, 03 July 2021 15:36

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was thirty-five years old, the Quraish decided to rebuild the Ka’bah. This was five years before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) became the prophet of Allah Ta‘ala.

When Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) had built the Ka’bah, it did not have a roof. Also, the walls were not very high. They were just a little taller than the height of a normal person. Because the Ka’bah was very old, and whenever it would rain, the water would flow into the Ka’bah and fill it, the Ka’bah was becoming damaged and needed to be rebuilt. That is why the Quraish decided to rebuild the Ka’bah.

After deciding to rebuild the Ka’bah, Abu Wahab said to the Quraish, “Remember that the money used to build the Ka’bah must be halaal money. It must not be money from sins, stealing and other haraam things. Allah Ta‘ala will only accept our building and be happy with us if we use halaal money.”
