Jonathan Brown – How to Understand Prophetic Speech

He (Muhammad) does not speak of his own desire. It is no less than an Inspiration sent down to him. (Surah Najm, 53:3-4)

The Qur’an repeatedly commands every Muslim to follow the Prophetic example. The Traditions (Ahadith) of the Prophet, often more than the Qur’an, govern Muslim life in their ability to articulate practice of the faith. The Hadith provide the information to follow the example of the Prophet as a spouse, a parent, a neighbor, a leader, and when needed, a warrior. In sum, Muhammad as the paragon of perfection, as enshrined in Islamic doctrine and spirituality, hinges on his words. How are Muslims to understand not only his words but the spirit from which they emanate? More directly, what are the practices in our emulation that lead us to follow his example and not speak from mere desire? How do we infuse our spirits and words with those inspired by the scripture and its revealer?

Abdal Hakim Murad – Prophetic Manners

In this khutba the Sheikh illustrates the high Islamic principle of adab (loosely translated as ‘manners’) with examples drawn from the rich tapestry of prophetic stories woven into the Qur’an. We learn how Ayyub (Job) is exiled from his loved ones, how Ibrahim (Abraham) receives unexpected desert visitors, how Isa (Jesus) is questioned over that which others ascribe to him, how Musa (Moses) was met with unexpected rewards in exile, may Allah be pleased with them all. These ancient examples of profound adab before a breakthrough moment is what we are called on to emulate in this present day and age.

Of course such a khutba would not be complete without mentioning the last of the emissaries of Allah – after the tribulations of Taif, the death of his uncle and patron, his wife, his son and the persecution of his enemies, Prophet Muhammad – may Allah grant him His blessings and peace – was able to say “O Allah, I ask that you do not change your decree, but that you be gentle with it”.

Every Muslim acknowledges that Prophet Muhammad (P) was sent as “a mercy to all the worlds”. Yet many Muslims fall short in exhibiting the quality of mercy in their lives.

What follows is a comprehensive overview of the concept of rahmah (love, compassion and mercy) in Islam that includes: Allah’s rahmah to His creation, rahmah that is conveyed in the sunnah to be shared between Muslims, between Muslim and non-Muslim, and between the Muslim and the natural creation such as animals. A wonderfully refreshing lecture and a great message to Muslim extremists or anyone subscribing to the notion that all Muslims are terrorists. (Duration: 31 min)
