bismillah

 Allah Teaches The Prophet Sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam

1. Why did the Prophet (Peace be upon him) repeat the ayaat as he was receiving them from Jibreel?

A1. He (Peace be upon him) was excited to receive revelation. But he was worried too that he may forget. So in order to memorize, he used to hurriedly repeat the ayaat while Jibreel was reciting.

2. What did Allah instruct the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) to do while receiving the Qur’an?

A2. Allah told the Prophet (Peace be upon him) to first listen to the revelation of the ayaat from Jibreel and not to haste in repeating. Allah will make it easier for him to remember it. He will also make it easier for him to explain the ayaat to others.

3. Is Allah happy with the disbelievers’ carelessness in terms of the next life?  Explain why?

A3. Allah is unhappy with disbelievers. As they are attached to this world and are forgetting the afterlife which is better and abiding than the life in this world. They are committing sins in order to enjoy the life and forgetting that in the hereafter they will be held responsible. Allah is giving them respite as they will suffer in the hereafter.

4. Describe how good people and bad people will look on the Day of Judgment?

A4. Those who did good deeds, their faces will be bright, shining and their happiness will be clear from their faces. Those who did bad deeds, their faces will be dark, gloomy, and their sadness will be clear from their faces.

5. What good news did Allah tell Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)in the verse 23 of Surah al-Qiyamah?

A5. Allah said:إِلَى رَبِّهَا نَاظِرَةٌ which means “Looking at their Lord (Allah).” Allah mentions here that the believers will be able to see Him in Jannah. This will be the greatest reward and joy.

6. What are the three ways of learning the Qur’an?  Give an example from the Sahabah’s time.

A6. 1. Learn the verses with tajweed.

2. Implement it in your daily life and then memorize the next set of verses.

3. Teach it to others.

The Sahabah used to learn 10 verses at a time. They did not move on to the next set of verses until they had practiced the commandments mentioned in the verses.

7. Identify the ayaat directing towards the unbelievers.

Arabic Text:

كَلا بَلْ تُحِبُّونَ الْعَاجِلَةَ

وَتَذَرُونَ الآخِرَةَ

English Text:

No! but (you men) love the life of this world. And leave (neglect) the Hereafter.

The Day of Judgment is Inevitable

1. In what location was Surah al-Qiyamah revealed to Prophet Muhammad?

A1. It was revealed in Makkah.

2. What does Yaum-ul-Qiyamah mean?

A2. It refers to the Day of Judgement. On this Day all will stand in front of Allah to account for their deeds.

3. What is An-Nafs-ul-Lawwamah?

A3. It means the blameful soul. A believer’s soul always feels as if it has not done enough to please Allah. It feels regretful of the shortcomings. This helps a believer to do more good deeds and avoid bad deeds.

4. Can a person run away from Allah? Explain.

A4. No one will be able to run away from Allah on that Day. He will find no shade to cover himself. Allah sees everything and knows everything. His Knowledge and Power encompasses everything. Where can a man escape? No place will he find to hide!

5. Identify the Ayaat in which Allah mentioned the resurrection of man’s bones.

أَيَحْسَبُ الإنْسَانُ أَلَّنْ نَجْمَعَ عِظَامَهُ

English Text: Does man think that We shall not assemble his bones?                        

Yes, We are Able to put together in perfect order the tips of his fingers.

6. Identify the Ayah in which account of man’s deeds is stated.

 Arabic Text:

يُنَبَّأُ الإنْسَانُ يَوْمَئِذٍ بِمَا قَدَّمَ وَأَخَّرَ

On that Day man will be informed of what he sent forward and what he left behind.

7. Identify the Ayah which states that man will be unable to defend himself.

بَلِ الإنْسَانُ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ بَصِيرَةٌ

Surah al Munafiqoon: Verses 1 – 4

SURAH AL MUNAFIQOON: VERSES 1-4

THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HYPOCRITES

Exercise 1: Questions and Answers (Page 99)

1. Were the Munafiqeen brave or cowardly? Defend your answer.

They were cowards. As they did not have the courage to declare that they are disbelievers nor did they have the courage to truly submit as Muslims. Their deception meant that they lacked self-confidence. Hypocrites were hiding behind their lie so that they could not be held accountable for working against Islam.

2. What are the differences between a hypocrite and an ordinary Muslim sinner?

Hypocrites never show their true face. They keep a nice outward appearance but from inside they are the worst enemies. They never admit their sins. Whereas an ordinary Muslim sinner does not hide his belief and many times accepts his sins he has committed. Even if he keeps it a secret, still he feels guilty in his heart.

3. What did the hypocrites do that made Allah refuse to forgive them?

Hypocrites knew of the truth, still they insisted to ignore the guidance. They swore to  lie that they were Muslims whereas they never accepted Islam from their heart. Normal disbelievers openly act according to their beliefs. Hypocrites hid their truth and, therefore, were deprived of Allah’s Mercy upon them.

4. The Munafiqeen were internal enemies of Islam. Do you agree? Support your answer with some historical incidents.

Definitely yes, as they always tried to disunite the Muslims by creating problems and misunderstandings between them. For example, Abdullah ibn Ubay was the leader of the hypocrites. He tried to disunite the Ansars from the Muhajireen. He told the Ansars that the Muhajireen were living on their land and surviving on their wealth. Not only that when confronted by the Prophet (Peace be upon him), he lied and swore that he had not said that. He was arrogant and did not want to accept his mistake.

The Story of the Three Who Missed Tabook

EXERCISE 1: Multiple Choice:

Check the Text Book, and do the answers to the Workbook Questions on Page 51, InshaaAllah.

EXERCISE 2: Question and Answers (Page 53)

1. How many days did the campaign to Tabook last? For how many days did the Prophet (Peace be upon him) and the Muslims ostracize (boycott) Ka’b and the other two companions who lagged behind? What lessons you can learn from that?

The Muslims returned to Madinah during the month of Ramadan after fifty days.

After listening to Ka’b ibn Malik and the other two men, the Prophet (Peace be upon him) told the people to boycott them and this continued for fifty days.

Ka’b ibn Malik, Murarah bin Rabee and Hilal bin Umayyah did not have an excuse as to why they were not able to take part in the campaign of Tabook. When the Prophet (Peace be upon him) returned to Madinah, they went to him and told him the truth.

They could have lied like the hypocrites but they chose to be truthful. They were righteous men. They were known to have taken part in previous battle/s. But this time it was a mistake committed on their part.

After they were boycotted, they felt depressed as no one spoke to them whether it was in the masjid or in the market place. The three men felt guilty. After fifty days they were forgiven by Allah. We learn that no matter what, we should never lie. Always remember Truth prevails and falsehood perishes.

2. Compare the hardship Abu Tharr Al-Ghifari went through when he followed the Muslims alone in the desert with hardship that Ka’b went through after Muslims returned to Madinah.

Abu Tharr was eager to join the Prophet (Peace be upon him) and the rest of the Muslims in Tabook. He was left behind because his camel was slow. So he put his belongings on his back and started walking alone in the desert. Other than it being summer time, it became more difficult for him as he had to walk rather than ride on his camel. He did not have any one to accompany him too. He faced this hardship for the Sake of Allah. The Prophet was very happy to see him.

Ka’b ibn Malik was at first worried as he did not know what to tell the Prophet (Peace be upon him). Then after being boycotted he felt alone and sad. No one would speak to him including his relatives. Ka’b had definitely realized his mistake.

Abu Tharr was received happily by the Muslims. His right intention and immediate action resulted in his favour. As for Ka’b, he did not prepare for the campaign and thought that because of a large army, his absence would not be noticed. He suffered because of his wrong decision. Both of them went through difficultly but at last they got the reward for it, Abu Tharr for his right intention and Ka’b for his honesty.
