Presentation Transcript
  • “Indeed, in the messenger of Allah, you have for you, the best example.” (33 : 21)
  • “We sent you (Muhammad) not but as a blessing for the universe”. (21 : 107)
  • “He it is who has sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, that He may make it conqueror of all religion, however much idolators may be averse.” (16 : 9)

Life of Muhammad (pbuh) is the best example (Uswatun-Hasanah) for us to follow.

  • He has shown us how to obey Allah, the lord of the Universe.
  • Allah says in Quran : “say (O Muhammad), if you love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive your sins, Allah is forgiving and Merciful.” (3 : 31)

Muhammad’s (pbuh) duty, according to the Quran, was to make Islam supreme over all other systems of life.

  • “It is He who sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion, although those who associate others with Allah dislike it.” (61 : 9)
  • “It is He who sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to menfest it over all religion. And sufficient is Allah as Witness.” (48 : 28)

Say, “My Lord has only forbidden immoralities – what is apparent of them and what is concealed – and sin, and oppression without right, and that you associate with Allah that for which He has not sent authority, and that you say about Allah that which you do not know.” (7 : 33)


Say, “ I am only a man like you, to whom has been revealed that your god is one God. SO whoever would hope for the meeting with his Lord – let him do righteous work and not associate in the worship of his lord anyone.”

  • باتوں کا انجام معلوم ہو جائے گا۔

  • وَقُلْ إِنِّي أَنَا النَّذِيرُ الْمُبِين
  • اور کہدو کہ میں تو علانیہ ڈر سنانے والا ہوں۔

Muhammad (PBUH) entered the house of Al-Arqam (one of the first Muslims). This house was situated near Kaaba and many pilgrims passed near it. For next 4 years. Muhammad (PBUH) preached from the House of Al-Arqam. This house is also called the House of Islam. During this period, as many as 200 hundred people were converted.

  • During first 3 years of preaching, there was no opposition from the Quraish because preaching was in secret.
the prophet on mount safa
The Prophet on Mount Safa:
  • Muhammad pbuh climbed on the top of As-Safa and shouted to the people.
  • “O men of Quraish, if I were to tell you that I see an army ready to attack on the other side of the mountain, would you believe me?”
  • They answered , “Yes, why not? We trust you and never found you telling a lie.”

Muhammad (pbuh) said,” know then, that I am warner and that I warn you of serve punishment. O Banu Abdul Muttalib! O Banu Abd Manaf! O Banu Zuhrah! O Banu Taim! O Banu Makhzum! O Banu Asad! Allah has commanded me to warm you, my nearest kinsmen, that I can assure you of good on this earth and in heaven if you declare that there is no god but Allah.”

abu lahab
Abu Lahab:
  • He said ,“Damn you! Did you assemble us for this?”
  • Allah revealed,

“ May the hands of Abu Lahab perish; doomed he is. His wealth and his properties shall nat save him. He shall be thrown into a flaming fire of hell.”

hostility begins
Hostility begins:
  • Quraish asked Abu Talib to with draw his support from Muhammad (pbuh )
  • Utbah Bin Rabiah (a leader of quraish) suggested,
  • "If what you want is money, we will gather for you our property, so the you may be the richest of us; if you want honour, we will make you our chief, so that no-one can decide anything apart from you; if you want sovereignty, we will make you king.”

Muhammad pbuh said ,

  • “ O my uncle, by Allah, if they put the sun in right hand and the moon in my left, and ask me to give up my mission, I shall not do it until Allah has made it victorious or I perish therein!”
  • Abu Talib said “Go and say what you please for, by Allah, I shall never withdraw my support from you.”


  • Main enemies of Islam were Abu Jahl, Abu Lahab and his wife, Abu Sufyan, Walid bin Mughaira and Atba bin Rabi. Ummya bin khalaf
  • Religious Causes:
  • Quraish respected their ancestors and were ready to die for them and their beliefs. Thus, they did not want to leave the 360 idols that their ancestors had worshipped. When Muhammad (PBUH)told them that their ancestors were in grave trouble because of polygamy and idol-worship, the Quraish grew violent.

Moral Causes:

  • Islam and the Quraish's moral values were totally different and opposite.
  • Islam preached modesty, while the Quraish were used to lavishness,
  • Islam promulgated equality of men and women, while the Quraish treated their women like chattels,
  • Islam enjoined loyalty to one faith, while the Quraish wanted loyalty only to the clan or tribe.

Social Causes:

  • The class conscious, rich Quraish could not reconcile with the slogan of equality of all humans raised by Muhammad (PBUH).
  • If Islam ruled, the high and the low, the master and the slave, the rich and the poor, the black and the white, all would be on equal footing.

Political Causes:

  • After Hazrat Abdul Muttlib, BanuMakhzum tried to rule with the help of BanuUmayya. Islam warned a capable and competent man to rule the kingdom, not a tribe.
  • If Islam was allowed to expand, the present Makkan rulers would no doubt have to relinquishtheir rule. They had an intense fear of power shifting from their hands into the hands of the Muslims. That is why the ruling tribes were the most hostile towards Islam.
  • In ancient times, politics and wealth went hand in hand.
  • • The leading families feared that loss of political power would mean loss of wealth.

Economic Causes:

  • • By talking about social justice and equality, Muhammad (PBUH) struck at the roots of their evil methods of big business, high finance and monopolistic economy and other facets of the capitalistic/mercantile practices.
  • It is because of this that to the new rich and the privileged class, He appeared as a lunatic, a revolutionary, a disrupter of law and a magician.

The persecutions:

  • • The first and most to suffer at the hands of the Quraish were the converted slaves.
  • They were beaten, roasted on hot desert sand, laid on their backs on burning coals, beaten, tortured and kept enclosed for days in dark, small rooms. Some were even butchered in cold blood.
  • Bilal was made to lie on his back in chains on the scorching desert sands by his master.
  • Yasir and Sumiya were tortured to death while their son Ammar treated with utmost cruelty.
  • Khabbab was treated with cruelty and barbarity.

As regards their own clansmen and kinsmen, their persecutors were milder but more organized. Each Quraishite family was responsible for punishing its men and women. Usman bin Affan and Zubair bin al-Awwam were tortured by their uncles while Saadibn al-Waqqas was tortured by his relatives.

  • Muhammad (PBUH) was tortured psychologically and physically:
  • People who had called him "the truthful" and "the trustworthy" tried to defame his character by openly calling him a liar.
  • Men and women threw rubbish on him as he was walking on the street and strew his path with thorns.
  • Once, when Muhammad (PBUH) was praying in the Kaaba, a wicked Quraishite threw a camel's innards on him..

إِنَّهُ لَقَوْلُ رَسُولٍ كَرِيم● وَمَا هُوَ بِقَوْلِ شَاعِرٍ قَلِيلاً مَا تُؤْمِنُون● وَلاَ بِقَوْلِ كَاهِنٍ قَلِيلاً مَا تَذَكَّرُون● تَنزِيلٌ مِّن رَّبِّ الْعَالَمِين●

کہ یہ قرآن ایک معزز فرشتے کا پہنچایا ہوا کلام ہے۔ اور یہ کسی شاعر کا کلام نہیں۔ مگر تم لوگ بہت ہی کم ایمان لاتے ہو۔ اور نہ کسی کاہن کا قول ہے۔ لیکن تم لوگ بہت ہی کم غوروفکر کرتے ہو۔ یہ رب العالمین کا اتارا ہوا ہے۔


(615 A.D) Migration to Abbysinia

  • When the prosecution became unbearable, the Prophet received command that some of his followers should migrate to Abbysinia.
  • Abbysinia (present day Ethiopia) had a kind-hearted Christian king named Najashi or Negus.
  • First migration (including Usman bin Affan and his wife Ruqayya) took place in 615 AD:
  • TOTAL : 15 Men: 11 Women: 4

Quraish immediately dispatched a delegation to Negus with gifts.

  • The Quraish had had long­standing trade relations with Abbysinia.
  • The Quraish demanded the immediate return of the fugitive Muslims.
  • When Jafar explained the principles of Islam to the king, Negus refused to hand over the Muslims to the Quraish.

قَالَ إِنِّي عَبْدُ اللَّهِ آتَانِيَ الْكِتَابَ وَجَعَلَنِي نَبِيًّا● وَجَعَلَنِي مُبَارَكًا أَيْنَ مَا كُنتُ وَأَوْصَانِي بِالصَّلاَةِ وَالزَّكَاةِ مَا دُمْتُ حَيًّا●

بچے نے کہا کہ میں اللہ کا بندہ ہوں اس نے مجھے کتاب دی ہے اور نبی بنایا ہے۔ اور میں جہاں ہوں اور جس حال میں ہوں اس نے مجھے صاحب برکت بنایا ہے اور جب تک زندہ ہوں مجھ کو نماز اور زکوٰۃ کا ارشاد فرمایا ہے۔


وَبَرًّا بِوَالِدَتِي وَلَمْ يَجْعَلْنِي جَبَّارًا شَقِيًّا● وَالسَّلاَمُ عَلَيَّ يَوْمَ وُلِدتُّ وَيَوْمَ أَمُوتُ وَيَوْمَ أُبْعَثُ حَيًّا● ذَلِكَ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ قَوْلَ الْحَقِّ الَّذِي فِيهِ يَمْتَرُون● مَا كَانَ لِلَّهِ أَن يَتَّخِذَ مِن وَلَدٍ سُبْحَانَهُ إِذَا قَضَى أَمْرًا فَإِنَّمَا يَقُولُ لَهُ كُن فَيَكُون● وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ رَبِّي وَرَبُّكُمْ فَاعْبُدُوهُ هَذَا صِرَاطٌ مُّسْتَقِيم●

اور مجھے اپنی ماں کے ساتھ نیک سلوک کرنے والا بنایا ہے اور سرکش و بدبخت نہیں بنایا۔ اور جس دن میں پیدا ہوا اور جس دن مروں گا اور جس دن زندہ کر کے اٹھایا جاؤں گا مجھ پر سلام ہے۔ یہ مریم کے بیٹے عیسٰی ہیں اور یہ سچی بات ہے جس میں لوگ شک کرتے ہیں۔ اللہ کو شایاں نہیں کہ کسی کو بیٹا بنائے وہ پاک ہے جب کسی چیز کا ارادہ کرتا ہے تو اس کو یہی کہتا ہے کہ ہو جا تو وہ ہو جاتی ہے۔ اور بیشک اللہ ہی میرا اور تمہارا پروردگار ہے تو اسی کی عبادت کرو یہی سیدھا رستہ ہے۔


(616 AD.) Second Migration to Abbysinia:

  • Encouraged by this success, another party of Muslims left for Abbysinia in 616 AD. This is known as the Second Migration to Abbysinia:
  • TOTAL : 101 Men: 83 Women and children: 18

(616 A.D)Conversion of Hamza:

  • Hamza was uncle of Muhammad (PBUH). He was fond of hunting and when he returned from it one day, Abu Jahl's slave girl told him how cruelly Abu Jahl had hurt and wounded Muhammad (PBUH).
  • Infuriated because of his love for the Prophet (PBUH), he upbraided Abu Jahl and challenged him to do his worst. Then, he went to the house of Al-Arqam and became a Muslim.
  • Conversion of Umar:
  • By 6th year of Prophet hood. UmarbenKhitab. chief of BanuAdi, was one of the worst enemies of Islam. One day, he was in the Kaaba discussing the rising Muslim influence when he decided to murder the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

On his way to the house of Arqam, he met Saad bin AbiWaqqas, who informed him that Umar's own sister Fatima and her husband had accepted Islam.

  • Umar went to his sister's house, where he found both of 'them reading the Quran. Even after hitting her violently on the face so hard that it stared bleeding, she told Umar that she would follow Muhammad (PBUH) no matter what he did.
  • Umar asked her to read afew verses of the Quran to him. Struck by the beauty of the Quran, Umar went to the house of Al-Arqam and immediately entered into the fo!d of Islam.
  • The Muslims were so overjoyed by the entry of so powerful a man into Islam that their victory cry was heard across Makkah.

(616 - 619 AD)Boycott of BanuHashim:

  • Alarmed at the escape of the Muslims from their clutches, the Quraish suspected that Muhammad (PBLJH) was planning an invasion of Makkah with Negus..
  • Knowing that they could not harm Muhammad (PBUH) much as he was under the protection of his tribe, BaniHashim, they agreed to boycott the entire tribe.
  • All the tribes of the Quraish agreed not to intermarry with BanuHashim, nor to sell or trade with them.
  • This agreement was signed and hung in the Kaaba.
  • BanuHashim then took refuge at the rock-bound property of Abu Talib on the outskirts of Makkah called Shi'bAbiTalib.

• Only Abu Lahab did not join the BaniHashim in their exile.

  • BanuHashim lived in impoverishment and near starvation except for the holy months when no enmity was allowed.
  • When Muhammad (PBUH) tried to preach Islam at the fair of Ukaz, Abu Lahab would start shouting profanities at him. Foreigners dispersed when they saw that Muhammad (PBUH) didn't have support among his own relatives.
  • Thus Islam's progress came to a total standstill during this period.
  • After three years of seeing the BaniHashim suffer, some of the Makkans nobles were tried to end the boycott.

(619 AD) The Year of Mourning:

  • In 619 AD, Abu Talib and Khadija died.
  • Muhammad (PBUH) was struck by grief.
  • He later said that when nobody believed in his mission, Khadija believed him, when he was friendless, she befriended him and when he was helpless, she helped him.
  • Abu Talib's death was a great setback. Muhammad (PBUH) lost his only support amongst the hostile Quraishi tribes.

(619 A.D) Visit to Taif:

  • 10 years had passed since Muhammad (PBUH) brought the Message of Allah to the Quraish. However, they still opposed and refused to change.
  • Taif is an oasis city near Makkah. At that time, it was something of a resort for the rich people of Arabia, with lush gardens and lavish display of wealth.
  • Muhammad (PBUH) journeyed to Taif. The rich people of Taif were worship an idol called ‘Lat’.
  • The people of Taif threw stones at Muhammad (PBUH) and so seriously wounded him that his shoes were filled with blood.

Conversion of a convoy of Jinn

  • In the way to return to Makkah from Taif a convoy of Jinn met with the Holy Prophet and accepted Islam.

قُلْ أُوحِيَ إِلَيَّ أَنَّهُ اسْتَمَعَ نَفَرٌ مِّنَ الْجِنِّ فَقَالُوا إِنَّا سَمِعْنَا قُرْآنًا عَجَبًا● يَهْدِي إِلَى الرُّشْدِ فَآمَنَّا بِهِ وَلَن نُّشْرِكَ بِرَبِّنَا أَحَدًا● وَأَنَّهُ تَعَالَى جَدُّ رَبِّنَا مَا اتَّخَذَ صَاحِبَةً وَلاَ وَلَدًا●

اے پیغمبر ﷺ لوگوں سے کہدو کہ میرے پاس وحی آئی ہے کہ جنوں کی ایک جماعت نے اس کتاب کو سنا تو کہنے لگے کہ ہم نے ایک عجیب قرآن سنا۔ جو بھلائی کا رستہ بتاتا ہے سو ہم اس پر ایمان لے آئے اور ہم اپنے پروردگار کے ساتھ کسی کو شریک نہیں بنائیں گے۔ اور یہ کہ ہمارے پروردگار کی شان بہت بلند ہے وہ نہ بیوی رکھتا ہے نہ اولاد۔


وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ يَقُولُ سَفِيهُنَا عَلَى اللَّهِ شَطَطًا● وَأَنَّا ظَنَنَّا أَن لَّن تَقُولَ الإِنسُ وَالْجِنُّ عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا● وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ رِجَالٌ مِّنَ الإِنسِ يَعُوذُونَ بِرِجَالٍ مِّنَ الْجِنِّ فَزَادُوهُمْ رَهَقًا● وَأَنَّهُمْ ظَنُّوا كَمَا ظَنَنتُمْ أَن لَّن يَبْعَثَ اللَّهُ أَحَدًا●

اور یہ کہ ہم میں سے کوئی کوئی بیوقوف اللہ کے بارے میں جھوٹ گھڑتا ہے۔ اور ہمارا یہ خیال تھا کہ انسان اور جن اللہ کی نسبت جھوٹ نہیں بولیں گے۔ اور یہ کہ بعض بنی آدم بعض جنات کی پناہ لیا کرتے تھے تو اس سے انکی سرکشی اور بڑھ گئ تھی۔ اور یہ کہ ان کا بھی یہی اعتقاد تھا جس طرح تمہارا تھا کہ اللہ کسی کو نہیں زندہ کرے گا۔


وَأَنَّا لَمَسْنَا السَّمَاء فَوَجَدْنَاهَا مُلِئَتْ حَرَسًا شَدِيدًا وَشُهُبًا● وَأَنَّا كُنَّا نَقْعُدُ مِنْهَا مَقَاعِدَ لِلسَّمْعِ فَمَن يَسْتَمِعِ الآنَ يَجِدْ لَهُ شِهَابًا رَّصَدًا● وَأَنَّا لاَ نَدْرِي أَشَرٌّ أُرِيدَ بِمَن فِي الأَرْضِ أَمْ أَرَادَ بِهِمْ رَبُّهُمْ رَشَدًا●

اور یہ کہ ہم نے آسمان کو ٹٹولا تو اسکو مضبوط چوکیداروں اور انگاروں سے بھرا ہوا پایا۔ اور یہ کہ پہلے ہم وہاں بہت سے مقامات پر فرشتوں کی باتیں سننے کے لئے بیٹھا کرتے تھے۔ اب کوئی سننا چاہے تو اپنے لئے انگارہ تیار پاتا ہے۔ اور یہ کہ ہمیں معلوم نہیں کہ اس سے اہل زمین کے ساتھ برائی مقصود ہے یا انکے پروردگار نے انکی بھلائی کا ارادہ فرمایا ہے۔


وَأَنَّا مِنَّا الصَّالِحُونَ وَمِنَّا دُونَ ذَلِكَ كُنَّا طَرَائِقَ قِدَدًا● وَأَنَّا ظَنَنَّا أَن لَّن نُّعجِزَ اللَّهَ فِي الأَرْضِ وَلَن نُّعْجِزَهُ هَرَبًا● وَأَنَّا لَمَّا سَمِعْنَا الْهُدَى آمَنَّا بِهِ فَمَن يُؤْمِن بِرَبِّهِ فَلاَ يَخَافُ بَخْسًا وَلاَ رَهَقًا●

اور یہ کہ ہم میں بعض نیک ہیں اور بعض دوسری طرح کے ہمارے کئ طرح کے مذہب ہیں۔ اور یہ کہ ہم نے سمجھ لیا ہے کہ ہم زمین میں خواہ کہیں ہوں اللہ کو ہرا نہیں سکتے اور نہ بھاگ کر اسکو تھکا سکتے ہیں۔ اور جب ہم نے ہدایت کی کتاب سنی اس پر ایمان لے آئےسو جو شخص اپنے پروردگار پر ایمان لاتا ہے تو اسکو نہ نقصان کا خوف ہے نہ کسی طرح کے ظلم کا۔


وَأَنَّا مِنَّا الْمُسْلِمُونَ وَمِنَّا الْقَاسِطُونَ فَمَنْ أَسْلَمَ فَأُوْلَئِكَ تَحَرَّوْا رَشَدًا●وأَمَّا الْقَاسِطُونَ فَكَانُوا لِجَهَنَّمَ حَطَبًا● وَأَلَّوِ اسْتَقَامُوا عَلَى الطَّرِيقَةِ لأَسْقَيْنَاهُم مَّاء غَدَقًا● لِنَفْتِنَهُمْ فِيهِ وَمَن يُعْرِضْ عَن ذِكْرِ رَبِّهِ يَسْلُكْهُ عَذَابًا صَعَدًا● وَأَنَّ الْمَسَاجِدَ لِلَّهِ فَلاَ تَدْعُوا مَعَ اللَّهِ أَحَدًا●

اور یہ کہ ہم میں بعض فرمانبردار ہیں۔ اور بعض نافرمان ہیں تو جو فرمانبردار ہوئے وہ سیدھے رستے پر چلے۔ اور جو نافرمان ہوئے وہ دوزخ کا ایندھن بنے۔ اے پیغمبر ﷺ یہ بھی ان سے کہدو کہ اگر یہ لوگ سیدھے رستے پر رہتے تو ہم انکے پینے کو بہت سا پانی دیتے۔ تاکہ اس سے انکی آزمائش کریں اور جو شخص اپنے پروردگار کی یاد سے منہ پھیرے گا وہ اسکو سخت عذاب میں داخل کرے گا۔ اور یہ کہ مسجدیں خاص اللہ کی ہیں تو اللہ کے ساتھ کسی اور کی عبادت نہ کرو۔


(620 A.D)Al-Miraj (The Ascent):

  • Memorial event for the Prophet (pbuh).

سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَى بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلاً مِّنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الأَقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِنْ

آيَاتِنَا إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ البَصِير ●

وہ قادر مطلق جو ہر خامی سے پاک ہے ایک رات اپنے بندے کو مسجد حرام یعنی خانہ کعبہ سے مسجد اقصٰے یعنی بیت المقدس تک جسکے چاروں طرف ہم نے برکتیں رکھی ہیں لے گیا تاکہ ہم اسے اپنی قدرت کی نشانیاں دکھائیں۔ بیشک وہ سننے والا ہے دیکھنے والا ہے۔


أَفَتُمَارُونَهُ عَلَى مَا يَرَى ●وَلَقَدْ رَآهُ نَزْلَةً أُخْرَى ●

عِندَ سِدْرَةِ الْمُنْتَهَى ● عِندَهَا جَنَّةُ الْمَأْوَى ●

إِذْ يَغْشَى السِّدْرَةَ مَا يَغْشَى ●مَا زَاغَ الْبَصَرُ وَمَا طَغَى ●

لَقَدْ رَأَى مِنْ آيَاتِ رَبِّهِ الْكُبْرَى ●

کیا جو کچھ وہ دیکھتے ہیں تم اس میں ان سے جھگڑتے ہو؟ اور انہوں نے اسکو یعنی جبرئیل کو ایک اور بار بھی اترتے دیکھا ہے۔ سدرۃ المنتہٰی کے پاس۔ اسی کے پاس ہمیشہ رہنے کی بہشت ہے۔ جبکہ اس بیری پر چھا رہا تھا جو چھا رہا تھا۔ ان کی آنکھ نہ تو اور طرف مائل ہوئی اور نہ حد سے آگے بڑھی۔ انہوں نے اپنے پروردگار کی قدرت کی بہت ہی بڑی بڑی نشانیاں دیکھیں۔

Five times daily prayers were laid down for Muslims at the time of Miraj.
