[Slideshare] ramadhan tadzkirah-miracle of revelation (4-aug-2012)

  1. 1. IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, MOST COMPASSIONATE, MOST MERCIFUL. “and neither does he (Muhammad) speak out of his own desire : that [which he conveys to you] is but [a divine] inspiration with which he is being inspired – “ By: USTAZ ZHULKEFLEE HJ ISMAIL 4 August 2012 (5.30pm) @ Galaxy Changi Road, for Muslim Converts’ Assocn. Of Singapore (MCAS) (Darul Arqam Singapore) TADZKIRAH : RAMADHAN REFLECTION (2012).All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  2. 2.  I am very much aware that I am primarily addressing Muslim audience, who are fasting in this blessed month of Ramadhan. We are here to seek further bestowals from Allah SWT, especially to benefit from knowledge which we may have already possess, as well as to gain further beneficial knowledge from Allah SWT. ROB-BANAA- AN-FA’-NAA -BI-MAA- ‘AL-LAM-TA-NAA O our Lord! Make us to benefit from what You have taught us.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  4. 4.  I am very much aware that I am primarily addressing Muslim audience, who are fasting in this blessed month of Ramadhan. We are here to seek further bestowals from Allah SWT, especially to benefit from knowledge which we may have already possess, as well as to gain further beneficial knowledge from Allah SWT.  Indeed, before we can derive further benefit and bestowals, we must first recognize and be thankfully appreciative of every favors given to us by Allah SWT. For, we are not merely to be servants of Allah as Muslims (who submit and obey), but most importantly as “GRATEFUL servants of Allah” -All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  5. 5. And they will say: "All praise is due to Allah, who has guided us unto this; for we would certainly not have found the right path unless Allah had guided us! Indeed, our Sustainers Messengers have told us the truth!“ (Qur’an: A’-raf: 7: 43)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  6. 6.  “Praise belongs to Allah who guided us to His praise, and placed us among the people of praise, that we might be among the thankful for His beneficence, and that He might recompense us for that with the recompense of the good-doers! “  “ And praise belongs to Allah who showed favour to us through His religion, singled us out for His creed, and directed us onto the roads of His beneficence, in order that through His kindness we might travel upon them to His good pleasure, a praise which He will accept from us and through which He will be pleased with us! “All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  7. 7.  “And praise belongs to Allah who appointed among those roads His month (SHAHRAHU),  the month of Ramadan (SHAHR-AR-RAMADHAN),  the month of fasting (SHAHR-AS-SIYAM)  the month of submission (SHAHR-AL-ISLAM), … “  “ … the month of purity (SHAHRAT-TOHUR)  the month of putting to test (SHAHR-AL-TAM-HEESw)  the month of standing in prayer (SHAR-AL-QIYAAM)  (month) in which the Quran was sent down as guidance to the people, and as clear signs of the Guidance and the Separator! “All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  8. 8. “Ramadan is the (month) in which was sent down the Quran…” SURAH AL-BAQARAH: 2 : 185All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  9. 9. “(Al-Quran) as a guide to mankind also clear (Signs, explanation) for guidance and judgment ( criterion, between right and wrong)…” SURAH AL-BAQARAH: 2 : 185All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  10. 10.  Muslim’s are aware of the importance in remembering historical events in the SEERAH (Life of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w.) and commemorate these events as expression of gratitude as well as to reflect upon the many important lessons to be learnt from them.  Amongst the most significant, as indicated in the verse, was that this RAMADHAN was the month in which the Quran was sent down; the first time Muhammad s.a.a.w. had a direct encounter with Divine revelation, which transformed him to begin his life as the last of the prophets sent by Allah SWT for mankind.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  12. 12.  The topic that I was originally given to speak on was (publicized) as: “The Miracle of the Last Revelation”  Presumably, since we would be commemorating the night of the revelation of the Qur’an - “NUZUL AL-QUR’AN”, this theme seems relevant and apt.  And most lectures in mosques, or gatherings like this, would inevitably focus upon the significance of this event or highlighting certain fascinating aspects of the event and teachings from the Qur’an.  There are so much to speak about regarding the Qur’an. The dilemma and challenge is to choose the most appropriate theme.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  13. 13.  Although many know the Prophetic command “ convey from me even if it be one Aayat (sign or verse) ”, yet, this should depend upon whom the audience are, their level and state (HAAL), and what do we wish to educate them on and why we think the chosen topic is (needed) necessary.  Though one may have much knowledge, in sharing knowledge and in educating, we are to follow the Prophetic wisdom: “ we are to speak to people in accordance with their intellectual level .”  Traditional teachers (Islamic scholars) from whom I was tutored, always teach only what is needed, not necessarily what is wanted.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  14. 14.  When I reflected upon the given topic: “ The Miracle of the Last Revelation” , I had several concerns.  Allow me to explain: [1] In my opinion, the English word “Miracle” is problematic because we need to critically ask the question: “what do we mean by a ‘miracle’ from an Islamic – Qur’anic perspective?” What Arabic word is this translation referring to? This is because, oftentimes there are many different terminologies in the Arabic which may have be translated into English rather loosely, grouped using a single word, thereby the subtle difference and significance regarding the issue being discussed would be lost.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  15. 15.  When I reflected upon the given topic: “ The Miracle of the Last Revelation” , I had several concerns.  Allow me to explain: [2] Are we equating the general notion of ‘miracle’ as popularly used, which may even include magic, sorcery, trickery etc. or anything regarded as extra-ordinary? Surely aspects of Islam cannot be allowed to be relegated to such. What is the equivalent Arabic- Qur’anic terminology that we are referring to here ? [3] Also, “the Last Revelation” may be assumed by many to merely refer to the Al-Qur’an, alone. This is misleading and incorrect !All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  16. 16. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  17. 17. MIRACLES The term used for this in Islam is “KHAARIQ AL-’AADAH” – meaning “breaking from the normal order; exceeding the customary; unusual; extra-ordinary; unprecedented; miracle; etc.” So, this term for “miracle” as in the Arabic, has as general meaning to include many kinds of extra-ordinary acts which can be demonstrated by all kinds of people. The term which is relevant in our discussion here is – MU’JIZAT – which if translated also as “miracle” is inaccurate or may even be misleading.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  18. 18. MIRACLES Islam uses various different and specific Arabic terms to “miracles”, bestowed or worked by different category of people, viz. [a] MU’JIZAT – bestowed only for Prophets of Allah [b] KAROMAH – bestowed for the saints (AWLIYA’) of Allah [c] MA-’UNAH - Divine bestowal for the righteous believers [d] ISTIDRAJ - extra-ordinary capabilities which can be learnt or granted to people e.g. magic, sorcery, or coincidences which bring peope away from believing in Allah.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  19. 19. MIRACLES Thus, Islam even warns the Muslims not to generalize as though all “miracles” are therefore the “MU’-JIZAT”, because Islam has clarified these by using different terms for different types of miracles. Actually, the Arabic term MU’JIZAT, literally does not mean “miracle” Too often, Muslims who read in English, may not know the erroneous misapplication (translation) of this term – MU’JIZAT. Understanding the difference in the actual meaning of this terminology vis-à-vis in the Qur’anic-Arabic, is very important to dispel this confusion.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  20. 20. MU’-JIZAT From the word “I’-JAZ” meaning to “bring low” – refers to extra-ordinary capability given to most prophets by Allah, as Signs or proof of their Prophet hood. Usually, it would approximate and challenge what people of the time had already regarded to be the most fantastic which they are capable of. Something being offered or demonstrated as proof, so that their people may recognize and test the claim of the prophet .All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  21. 21. MU’-JIZAT But, the ‘proof’ is not merely that it fascinates and is regarded as fantastic, but because it is something that “no one else can ever replicate it” - for they who contends with it or tries to deny it, will be “brought low” (I’-JAZ) i.e. refuted by their own inability and impotency in the face of it.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)

  24. 24. “This Qur’an is not such as can be produced by other than Allah (God). On the contrary it is a confirmation of revelations that went before it, and a fuller explanation of the Book wherein there is no doubt - from the Lord of the Universe” (Surah Yunos : 10: 37)All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  25. 25.  To the Arabs at the time of Muhammad s.a.w. then, it was their language (Arabic), linguistic and literary skills in composing odes and poetry which were held in highest regard.  This was their greatest accomplishment, which they have honed and it marked them out as Arabs.  And it is to this that the ‘miraculous’ nature of the Qur’an was highlighted to them to be especially tested.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  26. 26.  Many of these celebrated poets of the Quraysh, like:  Musaylama al-Kadz-dzab,  Thulaihah ibn Khuwailid al-As’ady,  An-Nadhor ibn Harith,  Mutanabby, Ibn al-Muqoffa etc., attempted but could not succeed. Not only this, their attempts were even denounced by their own peers, when they compared them to the style, eloquence, exquisite beauty and profoundness of the Qur’an.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  32. 32.  And standard of Arabic language used by people had declined since that golden era. Thus it would become near impossible for any to respond to this challenge ever again.  One well known poet at the time, Walid ibn Mughirah (himself a respected leader of the Quraysh), even admitted to his peers, after hearing Muhammad’s recitation of a portion of the Qur’an saying, that these could not be the work of mortals - whether it be of man or spirits – echoing precisely a verse in the Qur’an:All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  44. 44. IMPORTANT TO REMEMBERAll Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  45. 45.  Let me now explain my concern regarding phrase “ Last Revelation”.  Many may assume simplistically that it refers to Al-Qur’an. Perhaps they are unaware of the linguistic difference in the words used: “the Revelation (from God) ” as in the term – “ WAHYI ”All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  46. 46. Amongst the many WAHYI - which Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w. received from Allah SWT is the Book (Revealed from God)” with the specific term being “AL-KITAB” , when referring to Al-Qur’an. Although the Qur’an is the Book of Revelation, but not all the Revelation which the Prophet received, is in this Qur’an.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  47. 47.  Whereas the term a “Prophet” NABIY : is a person who receives revelations, Divine inspirations - WAHYI from Allah – not necessarily in the form of KITAB –  Therefore, by the phrase the “Last Revelation” , rightly it should be referring to the phenomena of Prophethood (NUBUWWAT) itself, rather than only to the Book - Al- Qur’an.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  48. 48.  And one of the essential message stressed in Islam is that Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w. was the Last or Seal in the line of Prophets sent by Allah for mankind. The main focus for inviting people to Islam is : to accept the Muhammad s.a.a.w., as the Prophet and Messenger of Allah, not merely about the Qur’an.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  50. 50.  It is unfortunate that many Muslims are approaching the learning of Islam as subjects (Islamic studies), whereas we are to subject ourselves to Islam with its teachings and message. This would require an educator, following a structured curriculum, going through stages and (spiritual) levels gradually, with appropriate guidance of Islamic teachers.  In our eagerness to learn many beautiful aspects of Islam, we must keep in view this – termed as ADAB. Remember, Allah SWT did not merely sent the Qur’an to be freely used by just anybody. He sent first the teacher who was also tasked to teach, clarify and educate with the Qur’an, a whole way of life - AD-DEEN.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
