al Fara’id al Hisan – Lesson 2: Introduction / The Khutba

  • How is the Prophet purifying our hearts and leading us to the sunnah? The answer is that we attach ourselves to his companions via bayah – the Prophet will now do tazkiyah of our hearts.
  • A Nabi is a human that Allah has sent to His creation to teach Islam (the laws of Allah) – the religion from the past or before.
  • A Rasool is a human that Allah has sent to His creation to teach a new law – a new religion.
  • Our Prophet is both a Nabi and a Rasool.
  • Every Rasool is a Nabi but a Nabi is not a Rasool.
  • Shaykh Ibrahim uses Rasool in his introduction because he could say the following “such a Messenger that was sent as a mercy to mankind”
  • No other Prophet was sent as a mercy to mankind.
  • The Prophet is in his essence is a mercy – there is no separation between the two.
  • Every single atom relies on the Prophet, everything was made from the light of the Messenger; so when the Prophet helps us and we depend on him; therefore he is a mercy to us.
  • The Prophet is a seal for all the Prophets.
  • A Nabi is one who possesses and then informs about the unseen.
  • Judge a book by its khutbah.
  • Allah is the One who created us and we are in His debt.
  • We are Muslims today because of the Prophet. It’s obligatory to do shukr and praise the Prophet because he brought the most beautiful of messages.
  • We are incapable of sending mercy ourselves, therefore the actual Mercy is only from Allah.
  • This is why we ask Allah to send Mercy on the Prophet on our behalf.
  • According to Imam Abu Hanifa the wives of the Prophet are ahlul bayt. This is the view of ahle sunnah.
  • In this day and age it is wajib to specifically mention the sahaba in the durood shareef you are reciting.
  • The Sahaba are those blessed individuals that the Prophet saw and had iman and died on iman.
  • When you find a path to the final Messenger; you have found a path to Allah.
