TAFSEER SURAH YA SIN:


THE HOLY QUR'AN IS THE PEAK OF WISDOM 

FEBRUARY 22 2014 / 22 RABI AL THANI 1435 HIJRI

By Shaikh Abdullah Al Faisal

 
Shaikh first gave this Tafseer in 1998 in London.

There are some hadiths about Surah Ya Sin.
 
For example, it says to recite Surah Yasin over your dead ones. This is a weak hadith.

The hadith about Surah Ya sin being the heart of the Quran is a fabricated hadith.

Some sheikhs quote fabricated hadith on the internet.
 
AYAH 1:
يسٓ

Ya-Sin. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings.] 

(Ya-Sin 36:1)

Ibn Kathir's tafseer is that these letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an but no one but Allah (SWT) knows their meaning.
 
Some commentator's say ya sin means ya insaan but this is just a conjecture.
 
It is better to go along with the tafseer of Ibn Kathir.

Only Allah (SWT) knows the meaning of Alif Lam Meem.

There were 30 different opinions about the meaning of these three words because they were guessing.
 
The best stance to take is that only Allah (SWT) knows the meaning.
 
 AYAH 2:
وَٱلۡقُرۡءَانِ ٱلۡحَكِيمِ 

By the Qur'an, full of wisdom (i.e. full of laws, evidences, and proofs), 

(Ya-Sin 36:2)

THE 18 REASONS WHY THE QUR'AN IS FULL OF WISDOM

1. ALLAH IS THE AUTHOR OF THE QURAN AND ONE OF ALLAH'S 99 NAMES IS AL-HAKEEM (THE ALL-WISE)
 
Therefore, Allah (SWT) is not the author of discrepancies.
 
He is not the author of farfetchedness.
 
2. THE QUR'AN IS FREE FROM CONTRADICTIONS

Do they not then consider the Qur'an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradictions

(An-Nisa 4:82)

Allah (SWT) asked you a question in Surah 4:82.
 
3. IT COINCIDES WITH ALL OF YOUR NATURAL INSTINCTS

So set you (O Muhammad SAW) your face towards the religion of pure Islamic Monotheism Hanifa (worship none but Allah Alone) Allah's Fitrah (i.e. Allah's Islamic Monotheism), with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalqillah (i.e. the Religion of Allah Islamic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not.

(Ar-Rum 30:30)

That is because they say: "Trading is only like Riba (usury)," whereas Allah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba (usury). 

(Al-Baqarah 2:255)

Allah (SWT) knows that you like women so He allows you marriage.
 
And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect.

(Ar-Rum 30:21)

Allah (SWT) allowed trading because the Qur'an was revealed to go along with all of your natural instincts.

Communism is dead so because it goes against your natural instincts.
 
And if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry (other) women of your choice, two or three, or four but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one or (the captives and the slaves) that your right hands possess. That is nearer to prevent you from doing injustice. 

(An-Nisa 4:3)

Allah (SWT) allows polygamy because He knows you like a variety of women.
 
This is why it exciting to live in countries likes the USA or the UK because you have a variety of races.
 
A society where all the women look the same is a boring society.
 
This is the personal opinion of Shaikh Faisal.
 
You don't have to accept it.
 
4. THE QUR'AN HAS NO OPPRESSION INSIDE OF IT

“Oh, my servants! I have made oppression haraam (forbidden) upon myself, and also between you. So do not oppress each other." 

[Sahih Muslim, Hadith #6246]

Whenever you read the Qur'an and it talks about two female witnesses for every male witness, don't say you don't accept it.

This is because of that (evil) which your hands have sent before you. And certainly, Allah is never unjust to (His) slaves.

(Aali Imran 3:182)

Don't apostate from Islam by not accepting it.
 
If a good befalls you, it grieves them, but if some evil overtakes you, they rejoice at it. But if you remain patient and become Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V.2:2), not the least harm will their cunning do to you. Surely, Allah surrounds all that they do.

(Aali Imran 3:120)

When you read the Qur'an and it talks about the male child having double that of the female child, don't say you don't accept it.
 
You can't say you won't accept the cutting off the hand of the thief.
 
You can't tell Allah (SWT) how to judge.

Don't reject faith in what Allah (SWT) has revealed.
 
Shut up and accept everything in the Qur'an.
 
Cut off (from the wrist joint) the (right) hand of the thief, male or female, as a recompense for that which they committed, a punishment by way of example from Allah. And Allah is All-Powerful, All Wise.

(Al-Ma'idah 5:38)

If you don't understand a verse, ask a scholar to explain it for you.
 
5. IT IS SUITABLE FOR ALL TIMES

Don't say the Qur'an is obsolete.
 
Don't be a modernist.
 
Don't be a secularist either.
 
This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.

(Al-Ma'idah 5:3)

The Jews said if Allah (SWT) had revealed a verse like the above ayah for them, they would have set aside a day of celebration for it.
 
6. IT ABROGATES ALL THE PREVIOUS BOOKS

When the Rasul (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) saw Umar reading the Torah, he got upset.
 
He said if Musa (AS) was alive today, he would have had no choice but to follow Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).
 
It was reported that the Prophet (SAW) became angry when he saw that ‘Umar had a page with something from the Torah written on it, and he (SAW) said: “Are you in doubt, O son of al-Khattab? Have I not brought you something shining and pure? If my brother Musa were alive, he would have no choice but to follow me.”

[Musnad Ahmad (3/387) No. 15195 and Sunan al-Darime (1/126) No. 435]

Don't say you can bow to your teacher when you do karate because the brothers of Joseph bowed down to him.
 
Don't come to me with abrogated shariahs.

I follow the shariah of Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).
 
And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it), and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment.

(Al-Hashr 59:7)

I don't follow the abrogated shariahs of Moses (AS) or Joseph (AS).
 
Don't tell me David was a king so you can give your bay'ah to a king.
 
David was before Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) so why are you coming with that?
 
The madkhalis say that.

Whenever kings enter a land they cause corruption.
 
She said: "Verily! Kings, when they enter a town (country), they despoil it, and make the most honorable amongst its people low. And thus they do.

(An-Naml 27:34)

This is why the king of Saudi Arabia gave his bay'ah to America.
 
Biliqis made the statement in the above ayah (27:34).
 
Allah (SWT) gave her statement the rubber stamp of approval because Allah (SWT) said, "and thus they do".
 
7. THE QUR'AN DOESN'T PUT ON YOU A BURDEN MORE THAN YOU CAN BEAR
 
Therefore even though it is difficult for you to fast the whole of Ramadan, it is bearable.

A woman who is pregnant doesn't have to fast in Ramadan and she doesn't have to make them up either.

Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. He gets reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned. "Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error, our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which You did lay on those before us (Jews and Christians); our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us Forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Maula (Patron, Supporter and Protector, etc.) and give us victory over the disbelieving people."

(Al-Baqarah 2:286)

A woman who is pregnant doesn't have to fast in Ramadan and she doesn't have to make them up either.
 
8. IT WAS REVEALED GRADUALLY TO MAKE IT EASY TO MEMORISE, TO UNDERSTAND AND TO PRACTICE
 
9. TO GIVE STRENGTH TO THE HEART OF THE PROPHET (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)
 
And those who disbelieve say: "Why is not the Qur'an revealed to him all at once?" Thus (it is sent down in parts), that We may strengthen your heart thereby. And We have revealed it to you gradually, in stages. (It was revealed to the Prophet SAW in 23 years.).

(Al-Furqan 25:32)

The Qur'an was revealed gradually to give strength to the heart of the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).

The kuffar of Makkah complained that Allah (SWT) didn't reveal the Qur'an all at once
 
They even want to tell Allah (SWT) how to reveal the Qur'an.

They complained about Allah (SWT) choosing to reveal the Qur'an to Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).
 
You can't tell Allah (SWT) whom to bless.
 
Neither those who disbelieve among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) nor Al-Mushrikun (the disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, idolaters, polytheists, pagans, etc.) like that there should be sent down unto you any good from your Lord. But Allah chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty.

(Al-Baqarah 2:105)
  
You just have to shut up and accept Qadr Allah (SWT).
 
The Qur'an came down gradually because every time a new surah came down they would rejoice.
 
When you come to this room, don't you come expecting a new topic everyday?
 
If I talked about the punishment of the grave everyday that would be very monotonous.
 
And whenever there comes down a Surah (chapter from the Qur'an), some of them (hypocrites) say: "Which of you has had his Faith increased by it?" As for those who believe, it has increased their Faith, and they rejoice.

(At-Tawbah 9:124)

These noble companions of Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) liked knowledge.
 
A munafiq doesn't like knowledge.

It is very boring for him to come to a room like this.
 
He goes to a room where they play zina music.
 
Ahlul sunnah wal jamaah use this ayah to checkmate Hizbu Tahrir because they claim iman is stagnant and it doesn't go up or down.

Those (i.e. believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, "Verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore, fear them." But it (only) increased them in Faith, and they said: "Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)."

(Aali Imran 3:173)

Surah 3:173 is the other ayah used to checkmate Hizbu Tahrir.
 
9. SOME SURAHS WERE REVEALED IN MAKKAH AND SOME SURAHS WERE REVEALED IN MADINA
 
Allah (SWT) revealed surahs according to the environment.
 
Makkah was darul harb.
 
Medina was darul Islam.
 
Ethiopia was darul kufr.
 
We have the three dears in the world right now.
 
The countries that are killing Muslims or locking innocent Muslims up are darul Harb.
 
Any country that is killing Muslims in Afghanistan is darul harb.
 
Any MP who voted for war, have declared war against the Muslims.
 
They have blood on their hands.
 
All the MPs who voted for war on Iraq have blood on their hands.
 
I got a 9 year prison sentence for a talk called jihad its aims and objectives.
 
If I had spoken on darul harb, I would have got a 30-year sentence.
 
It is telling you the rules of darul harb and that is dismantling the dajjal system brick by brick.
   
When I was in the UK, my wife begged me not to speak on darul barb because many Muslims are hypocrites and they can't cope with the topic.
 
They love the kuffar even though the kuffar are killing them all over the world.

The surahs of Makkah focus on Tawheed.
 
The surahs of Medina focus on shariah.
 
This is called different strokes for different folks.
 
Therefore calling for shariah in the UK, the USA and Australia is a big mistake.
 
The foundation of Islam is Tawheed not fiqh.
 
Because of that, Abu Hanifa said to learn your Tawheed is fiqhul Akbar.
 
The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) spent 13 years teaching his companions Tawheed.
 
When they migrated to Medina, then he taught them shariah.
 
When he sent Muadh ibn Jabal to Yemen, he told Muadh the first thing he should invite the people to is the Tawheed of Allah.

Narrated By Ibn Abbas: When the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) sent Muadh to Yemen, he said to him, "You are going to a nation from the people of the Scripture, so let the first thing to which you will invite them, be the Tauhid of Allah. If they learn that, tell them that Allah has enjoined on them, five prayers to be offered in one day and one night. And if they pray, tell them that Allah has enjoined on them Zakat of their properties and it is to be taken from the rich among them and given to the poor. And if they agree to that, then take from them Zakat but avoid the best property of the people." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 93, Hadith #469]
   
The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) didn’t say the first thing they should be called to is to stop gambling or to stop taking riba.
 
To my brothers who are inviting the kuffar to shariah: invite them to Tawheed not shariah.
 
The white kaafir of France doesn't even believe Allah (SWT) exists.
 
So how can you invite him to shariah?

10. IT COINCIDES WITH ALL SCIENTIFIC FACTS

He has created the heavens without any pillars, that you see and has set on the earth firm mountains, lest it should shake with you. And He has scattered therein-moving (living) creatures of all kinds. And We send down water (rain) from the sky, and We cause (plants) of every goodly kind to grow therein. (Luqman 31:10)

Allah (SWT) told you that the purpose of the mountains is to keep the earth still so it doesn't wobble when you walk along the earth.

He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together. Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

(Ar-Rahman 55: 19-21)

Allah (SWT) spoke about the lying sinful forelock.

A lying, sinful forelock! (Al-'Alaq 96:16)
 
The brain surgeons discovered the front lobe of the brain is the section of the brain that people use to concoct a lie.

11. THE QUR'AN HAS NO GRAMMATICAL ERRORS EVEN THOUGH IT WAS REVEALED TO AN UNLETTERED PROPHET
 
It is the text book of the Arabic language

Falsehood cannot come to it from before it or behind it (it is) sent down by the All-Wise, Worthy of all praise (Allah).

(Fussilat 41:42)

12. ALLAH REVEALED THE QURAN IN A RHYTHMIC FORM TO MAKE IT EASY FOR YOU TO MEMORIZE

And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember, and then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)?

(Al-Qamar 54:17)

The Qur'an is the only book on earth that is memorized by millions of people.
 
13. THE QUR'AN IS COMPREHENSIVE; IT COVERS ALL SUBJECTS OF LIFE

Surah 12:3 covers history.

We relate unto you (Muhammad SAW) the best of stories through Our Revelations unto you, of this Qur'an. And before this (i.e. before the coming of Divine Inspiration to you), you were among those who knew nothing about it (the Qur'an).

(Yusuf 12:3)

Surah 2:255 talks about theology.

Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber, nor sleep overtake Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter . And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. [This Verse 2:255 is called Ayat-ul-Kursi.]
                                                                     
(Al-Baqarah 2:255)

Surah 12: 39-40 cover four branches of Tawheed

"O two companions of the prison! Are many different lords (gods) better or Allah, the One, the Irresistible?

(Yusuf 12:39)

"You do not worship besides Him but only names which you have named (forged), you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. The command (or the judgement) is for none but Allah. He has commanded that you worship none but Him (i.e. His Monotheism), that is the (true) straight religion, but most men know not.

(Yusuf 12:40)

Psychology is found in Surah 27:14.
 
And they belied them (those Ayat) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their ownselves were convinced thereof [i.e. those (Ayat) are from Allah, and Musa (Moses) is the Messenger of Allah in truth, but they disliked to obey Musa (Moses), and hated to believe in his Message of Monotheism]. So see what was the end of the Mufsidun (disbelievers, disobedient to Allah, evildoers, liars.).

(An-Naml 27:14)

Allah (SWT) exposes the psyche of the Taghoot.

And they brought his shirt stained with false blood. He said: "Nay, but your ownselves have made up a tale. So (for me) patience is most fitting. And it is Allah (Alone) Whose help can be sought against that which you assert."

(Yusuf 12:1

Surah 12:18 talks about criminology.
 
You will never appreciate the Qur'an unless someone gives you the tafseer of the Qur'an.
 
Jacob knew a wolf didn't eat his son because his shirt was in tact.
 
The brothers returned at isha time because they used the darkness of the night to hide their crocodile tears.

Sociology can be found in Surah 12:30-31.
 
And women in the city said: "The wife of Al-'Aziz is seeking to seduce her (slave) young man, indeed she loves him violently; verily we see her in plain error." So when she heard of their accusation, she sent for them and prepared a banquet for them; she gave each one of them a knife (to cut the foodstuff with), and she said [(to Yusuf (Joseph)]: "Come out before them." Then, when they saw him, they exalted him (at his beauty) and (in their astonishment) cut their hands. They said: "How perfect is Allah (or Allah forbid)! No man is this! This is none other than a noble angel!"

(Yusuf 12:30-31)

The women of the city are saying that they cheat on their husbands but they don't sleep beneath their status.
 
These were pagan women.

They didn't have a problem with the zina.

They had a problem with her partner. Why her slave boy?
 
The women linked love to sex.
 
They don't sleep with random men; they sleep with men they fancy.
 
This is sociology in the Qur'an.

The Qur'an even has animal psychology in it in Surah 27:18.
 
Till, when they came to the valley of the ants, one of the ants said: "O ants! Enter your dwellings, lest Sulaiman (Solomon) and his hosts crush you, while they perceive not."

(An-Naml 27:18)

There is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered.

(Al-An'am 6:3)

The ayah is saying that animals have between themselves language.

They also have care and mercy for each other because they look out for each other.

Surah 27:23-25 also talks about animal psychology. Even the bird knew that Allah alone deserves to be worshipped.

"I found a woman ruling over them, and she has been given all things that could be possessed by any ruler of the earth, and she has a great throne. "I found her and her people worshipping the sun instead of Allah, and Shaitan (Satan) has made their deeds fair-seeming to them, and has barred them from (Allah's) Way, so they have no guidance," Al-La (this word has two interpretations)  [As Shaitan (Satan) has barred them from Allah's Way] so that they do not worship (prostrate before) Allah, or  So that they may worship (prostrate before) Allah, Who brings to light what is hidden in the heavens and the earth, and knows what you conceal and what you reveal

(An-Naml 27: 23-25)

The Qur'an has inside of it geography in Surah 21:31.
 
And We have placed on the earth firm mountains, lest it should shake with them, and We placed therein broad highways for them to pass through, that they may be guided.

(Al-Anbiya 21:31)

The mountains were placed on earth for the earth not to wobble.
 
The Qur'an has inside of it oceanography.
 
Is not He (better than your gods) Who has made the earth as a fixed abode, and has placed rivers in its midst, and has placed firm mountains therein, and has set a barrier between the two seas (of salt and sweet water).Is there any ilah (god) with Allah? Nay, but most of them know not.

(An-Naml 27:61)

He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together. Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

(Ar-Rahman 55:19-21)

The other subject Allah covers is judiciary. Judiciary is a criminal justice system

The ayah that Harvard University hung up in their university is Surah 4:135.

O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, Allah is a Better Protector to both (than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you may avoid justice, and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allah is Ever WellAcquainted with what you do.

(An-Nisa 4:135)

They hung it up in their law school.

Entrance Wall of Harvard:: http://library.law.harvard.edu/justicequotes/explore-the-room/west/

There is no book that covers justice like the Qur'an.
 
When the bird spoke to Sulaiman about Bilqis, he said;

[Sulaiman (Solomon)] said: "We shall see whether you speak the truth or you are (one) of the liars.

(An-Naml 27:27)

Sulaiman (AS) wanted to verify the bird's statement before acting upon it.
 
In darul harb they go by hearsay.
 
They send people to the electric chair because of hearsay.

O you who believe! If a rebellious evil person comes to you with a news, verify it, lest you harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful to what you have done.

(Al-Hujurat 49:6)

When they heard Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, they did not verify it.
 
They invaded Iraq and killed many people.
 
They kill first and then they verify later.

That is darul harb for you.
 
The Qur'an also has in it economics.
 
It has the zakah system as well as the Islamic laws of inheritance.

The longest ayah in the Qur'an is talking about money.

O you who believe! When you contract a debt for a fixed period, write it down. Let a scribe write it down in justice between you. Let not the scribe refuse to write as Allah has taught him, so let him write. Let him (the debtor) who incurs the liability dictate, and he must fear Allah, his Lord, and diminish not anything of what he owes. But if the debtor is of poor understanding, or weak, or is unable himself to dictate, then let his guardian dictate in justice. And get two witnesses out of your own men. And if there are not two men (available), then a man and two women, such as you agree for witnesses, so that if one of them (two women) errs, the other can remind her. And the witnesses should not refuse when they are called on (for evidence). You should not become weary to write it (your contract), whether it be small or big, for its fixed term, that is more just with Allah; more solid as evidence, and more convenient to prevent doubts among yourselves, save when it is a present trade which you carry out on the spot among yourselves, then there is no sin on you if you do not write it down. But take witnesses whenever you make a commercial contract. Let neither scribe nor witness suffer any harm, but if you do (such harm), it would be wickedness in you. So be afraid of Allah; and Allah teaches you. And Allah is the All-Knower of each and everything.

(Al-Baqarah 2:282)

When you draft up a contract, you should have two witnesses and you should write it down.

Everyday people kill people over money because they didn't follow the instructions of the Quran.

Surah 27:28-32 is talking about politics.
 
"Go you with this letter of mine, and deliver it to them, then draw back from them, and see what (answer) they return."

(An-Naml 27:2)

She said: "O chiefs! Verily! Here is delivered to me a noble letter, "Verily! It is from Sulaiman (Solomon), and verily! It (reads) : In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful; "Be you not exalted against me, but come to me as Muslims (true believers who submit to Allah with full submission)'" She said: "O chiefs! Advise me in (this) case of mine. I decide no case till you are present with me."

(An-Naml 27:29-32)

 It was a chess game between Bilqis and Sulaiman.

Bilqis understood the importance of having a meeting before making a big decision.

The Qur'an is comprehensive. This is why we were able to look at so many subjects covered in the Qur'an.
 
There is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered.

(Al-An'am 6:38)

Even animal psychology was covered in the Qur'an.
 
14. IT WAS REVEALED TO SOLVE SOME DILEMMAS OF THE PROPHET (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)

For example, the slander of Aisha.

Verily! Those who brought forth the slander (against 'Aishah the wife of the Prophet SAW) are a group among you. Consider it not a bad thing for you. Nay, it is good for you. Unto every man among them will be paid that which he had earned of the sin, and as for him among them who had the greater share therein, his will be a great torment.

(An-Nur 24:11)

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was behaving cold towards Aisha because he didn't know if she had an affair.

When the above ayah was revealed, he stopped behaving cold towards her.
 
It is possible for the wife of a prophet to have an affair but Aisha didn't have an affair.
 
Allah (SWT) said what the hypocrites said about her was ifk (a big lie).
 
15. TO CORRECT THE MISTAKES OF THE PROPHET (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)

The first mistake can be found in Surah 80:1-2.

(The Prophet (Peace be upon him)) frowned and turned away, Because there came to him the blind man (i.e. 'Abdullah bin Umm-Maktum, who came to the Prophet (Peace be upon him) while he was preaching to one or some of the Quraish chiefs

('Abasa 80:1-2)

The Qur'an is comprehensive. This is why we were able to look at so many subjects covered in the Qur'an.

The Shiites say the prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) didn’t frown, it was Abu Jahl who frowned

They say you are a wahhabi and you are slandering the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).

The Shiites try to checkmate us with Surah 68:4.
 
And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are on an exalted standard of character.

(Al-Qalam 68:4)

Don't go the rooms of Shiites out of curiosity because curiosity killed the cat.

The other mistake can be found in Surah 75:16-19. The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) used to move his tongue with the Qur'an when the angel was reciting it. He was afraid he would forget it.

Move not your tongue concerning (the Qur'an, O Muhammad SAW) to make haste therewith.
It is for Us to collect it and to give you (O Muhammad SAW) the ability to recite it (the Qur'an),
And when We have recited it to you [O Muhammad SAW through Jibrael (Gabriel)], then follow you its (the Qur'an's) recital. Then it is for Us (Allah) to make it clear to you,

(Al-Qiyamah 75:16-19)

Allah (SWT) told him to wait for the angel to recite it, then to follow up with the recitation.

The other correction can be found in Surah 66:1.
 
O Prophet! Why do you ban (for yourself) that which Allah has made lawful to you, seeking to please your wives? And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

(At-Tahrim 66:1)

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said he will never have honey again.
 
Allah (SWT) corrected him in the above ayah.
 
This ayah is the knockout punch for the shiites.

How can they refute this ayah?
 
The other mistake of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) is praying over a munafiq.

And never (O Muhammad SAW) pray (funeral prayer) for any of them (hypocrites) who dies, nor stand at his grave. Certainly they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger, and died while they were Fasiqun (rebellious, - disobedient to Allah and His Messenger SAW).

(At-Tawbah 9:84)

 It is haraam to go to the janazah of a munafiq.
 
If a person was a spy or a soldier in a kaafir army fighting for the taghut, it is haraam to pray over him.

The evidence is Surah 4:76.

Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitan (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan).


(An-Nisa 4:76) 
TAFSIR SURAH YA SIN:
WHY THE QURAN IS THE PEAK OF WISDOM

FEBRUARY 23 2014 / 22 RABI AL THANI 1435 HIJRI

DARS TWO

#16 ALLAH REVEALED THE HOLY QURAN IN THE BEST LANGUAGE

Allah (SWT) revealed the holy Quran in the best language via his closest angel to his favorite prophet, in the most sacred month, in the holiest city (Makkah)

Alif-Lam-Ra. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. These are the Verses of the Clear Book (the Qur'an that makes clear the legal and illegal things, legal laws, a guidance and a blessing).

(Yusuf 12:1)

Allah (SWT) chose Arabic as a language for the Quran because it is a language that is free from ambiguities.

Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an in order that you may understand.

(Yusuf 12:2)

If a language is full of ambiguities, it is not a proper language. English is not a proper language as it is full of ambiguities.

Anyone who prefers another language over Arabic is a munafiq, as Arabic is the Sunnah of Allah (SWT).

#17 THE MANY ACCURATE PREDICTIONS OF THE HOLY QURAN

Perish the two hands of Abu Lahab (an uncle of the Prophet), and perish he! His wealth and his children (etc.) will not benefit him! He will be burnt in a Fire of blazing flames! And his wife too, who carries wood (thorns of Sadan which she used to put on the way of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) , or use to slander him). In her neck is a twisted rope of Masad (palm fibre). 

(Al-Masad 111:1-5)

PREDICTION #1 The first prediction is when Allah (SWT) mentions in the above verse, that Abu Lahab and his wife would not become Muslims.

Abu Lahab could have said he became a Muslim and make it seem that the Quran was false, but this could not be the case, as what Allah (SWT) wills comes to pass.

Alif Lam Mim [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. The Romans have been defeated.

(Ar-Rum 30:1-2)

In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious. Within three to nine years The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allah to the Romans against the Persians),

(Ar-Rum 30:3-4)

Another prediction of the Quran was when Allah (SWT) predicted that even though the Romans had been defeated, they would make a comeback within 3-9 years.

The above ayah mentions that the Muslims would rejoice because the Romans were the people of the book.

The Roman comeback occurred at the same time as the battle of Badr.

And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Fir'aun (Pharaoh) with his hosts followed them in oppression and enmity, till when drowning overtook him, he said: "I believe that La ilaha illa (Huwa) : (none has the right to be worshipped but) He,in Whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am one of the Muslims (those who submit to Allah's Will)" Now (you believe) while you refused to believe before and you were one of the Mufsidun (evil-doers, corrupts, etc.). So this day We shall deliver your (dead) body (out from the sea) that you may be a sign to those who come after you! And verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs , revelations, etc.).

(Yunus 10:90-92)

Another prediction of the Quran, which is amazing, is where Allah (SWT) talks about preserving the body of pharaoh in the red sea.

The above ayahs mention how pharaoh took his Shahada just when he was about to die. The body of pharaoh was discovered in 1897, so his body was under the sea for 3000 years.

How can a dead body be preserved under water for 3000 years and still be intact? because it is a prediction of the Holy Quran. How can a kaafir read this ayah of the Quran and still not become a Muslim?

The kaafirs wanted to tell Allah (SWT) to bless one of the two men of the two mighty cities; Waleed ibn Mugheera or  Amr ibn Umair ath-Thaqafi to be the prophet, because they were rich men.

Verily, he thought and plotted; So let him be cursed! How he plotted! And once more let him be cursed, how he plotted! Then he thought; Then he frowned and he looked in a bad tempered way; Then he turned back and was proud; Then he said: "This is nothing but magic from that of old; "This is nothing but the word of a human being!" I will cast him into Hell-fire

(Al-Muddaththir 74:18-26)

Jaheem is the only place of hell in which you can come out from, other places of hell such as saqar and jahanam, you cannot get out of these places and there is no intercession for you.

Another prediction of the Quran is where Allah (SWT) said He would throw Waleed ibn Mugheerah into saqar.

#18 THE QURAN TEACHES US HOW TO REFUTE THE KUFFAAR AND THE HYPOCRITES

He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have children when He has no wife? He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything.

(Al-An'am 6:101)

So whenever you meet a Christian, you should quote the above ayah to checkmate the Christians as Allah (SWT) said How He could beget children, when beget means to impregnate women by means of intercourse.

And this is not befitting of Allah (SWT) to beget.

The dualists believe in two gods and the polytheists believe in three or more gods, so Christians are polytheists as they believe in three gods.

Had there been therein (in the heavens and the earth) gods besides Allah, then verily both would have been ruined. Glorified be Allah, the Lord of the Throne, (High is He) above what they attribute to Him!

(Al-Anbiya 21:22)

No son (or offspring or children) did Allah beget, nor is there any ilah (god) along with Him; (if there had been many gods), behold, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have tried to overcome others! Glorified be Allah above all that they attribute to Him!

(Al-Mu'minun 23:91)

Allah (SWT) uses the above verse to refute the idea that two gods could co-exist together, as Allah (SWT) checkmates the polytheists and the dualists by saying two gods would cause ruin as none of the gods would back down.

Allah (SWT) is teaching you the arguments to refute the polytheists and the dualists.

The pantheist believes that everything is Allah (SWT), i.e. there is no difference between the Creator and the creation.

And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Prostrate not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him.

(Fussilat 41:37)

They believe the sun, the moon, the planets, the monkey etc are Allah (SWT), and they say Allah (SWT) is in everything.

The above verse refutes the thinking of the pantheists.

"I found a woman ruling over them, and she has been given all things that could be possessed by any ruler of the earth, and she has a great throne. "I found her and her people worshipping the sun instead of Allah, and Shaitan (Satan) has made their deeds fair-seeming to them, and has barred them from (Allah's) Way, so they have no guidance,"

(An-Naml 27:23-24)

The above ayah show that a bird has more status than you pantheists, as if you do not worship Allah (SWT), you are the lowest of the low as the animals of the earth all worship Allah (SWT) and you, the human being, do not know that Allah (SWT) deserves to be worshipped.

By the fig, and the olive, By Mount Sinai, And by this city of security (Makkah), Verily, We created man of the best stature (mould), Then We reduced him to the lowest of the low, Save those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous deeds, then they shall have a reward without end (Paradise).

(At-Tin 95:1-6)

If you do not worship Allah (SWT) alone, you are lower than the donkey, the monkey and even the dogs etc as they all worship Allah (SWT).

Or do you think that most of them hear or understand? They are only like cattle; nay, they are even farther astray from the Path. (i.e. even worst than cattle). 

(Al-Furqan 25:44)

Were they created by nothing, or were they themselves the creators? 

(At-Tur 52:35)

How did Allah (SWT) refute the atheist? Allah (SWT) refuted the atheist in above ayahs saying the greatest scientist cannot even make a housefly.

There is no such thing as a creation without a creator.

Who has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the creations of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: "Can you see any rifts?" Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you in a state of humiliation and worn out.

(Al-Mulk 67:3-4)

Allah (SWT) mentions in the above ayahs and says, look at the wonderful creation of Allah (SWT), look, look again, and see if you can find any fault in it. Your eyesight will come back to you worn out.

Now ask them (O Muhammad SAW): "Are there (only) daughters for your Lord and sons for them?" Or did We create the angels females while they were witnesses? Verily, it is of their falsehood that they (Quraish pagans) say: "Allah has begotten off spring or children (i.e. angels are the daughters of Allah)?" And, verily, they are liars! Has He (then) chosen daughters rather than sons?

(As-Saffat 37:149-153)

Allah (SWT) also checkmated the pagan Arabs by refuting the dodgy belief they had that Allah (SWT) had angels that were females by revealing the above verses.

Anything you read in the Quran, 'ask them', Allah (SWT) is teaching you to refute the atheists, pagans, pantheists, atheists, polytheists, etc.

And verily, you will find them (the Jews) the greediest of mankind for life and (even greedier) than those who - ascribe partners to Allah (and do not believe in Resurrection - Magians, pagans, and idolaters, etc.). Everyone of them wishes that he could be given a life of a thousand years. But the grant of such life will not save him even a little from (due) punishment. And Allah is All-Seer of what they do. 

(Al-Baqarah 2:96)

How did Allah (SWT) checkmate the Jews? The Jews say that they are God's chosen people and paradise is exclusive to you, Allah (SWT) refuted their dodgy beliefs by revealing the above ayahs

Say to (them) : "If the home of the Hereafter with Allah is indeed for you specially and not for others, of mankind, then long for death if you are truthful." But they will never long for it because of what their hands have sent before them (i.e. what they have done). And Allah is All-Aware of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers). And verily, you will find them (the Jews) the greediest of mankind for life and (even greedier) than those who - ascribe partners to Allah (and do not believe in Resurrection - Magians, pagans, and idolaters, etc.). Everyone of them wishes that he could be given a life of a thousand years. But the grant of such life will not save him even a little from (due) punishment. And Allah is All-Seer of what they do.

(Al-Baqarah 2:94-96)

Whenever you read in the Quran and Allah (SWT) says 'qul', say to them, Allah (SWT) is teaching you to checkmate/refute the kaafir.

Allah (SWT) asks the Jews why don't they ask for death, if they boast that the hereafter and paradise are exclusive to them alone? Because Allah (SWT) knows the crimes they have committed against humanity and so they would never wish for death.

Those (Jews) who said: "Verily, Allah has taken our promise not to believe in any Messenger unless he brings to us an offering which the fire (from heaven) shall devour." Say: "Verily, there came to you Messengers before me, with clear signs and even with what you speak of; why then did you kill them, if you are truthful?" 

(Aali Imran 3:183)

The above ayahs refute the notion that the Jews were pious people as they claimed as they killed their prophets such as Zakariya and his son Yahya amongst many other prophets.

Ibn Abbas (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Verily the most painful punishment on the Day of Judgment are those who kill the prophets or people murdered by the prophet or kill one of his parents, and making statues and knowledgeable people who do not benefit from his knowledge." 

[Related by Bayhaqi in 'Shu'ab al-Iman' (10/28 No. 7504]

The modus operandi of the Jews is to kill prophets.

He has created the heavens without any pillars, that you see and has set on the earth firm mountains, lest it should shake with you. And He has scattered therein moving (living) creatures of all kinds. And We send down water (rain) from the sky, and We cause (plants) of every goodly kind to grow therein. This is the creation of Allah. So show Me that which those (whom you worship), besides Him have created. Nay, the Zalimun (polytheists, wrongdoers and those who do not believe in the Oneness of Allah) are in plain error.

(Luqman 31:10-11)

Allah (SWT) is teaching you how to checkmate a pagan that worships wood and stones and not Allah (SWT).

AYAH 3 

إِنَّكَ لَمِنَ ٱلۡمُرۡسَلِينَ 

Truly, you (O Muhammad SAW) are one of the Messengers, (Ya-Sin 36:3)

There is a difference between predestination and destiny, and sadaqah and zakat.

There is a difference between heaven and paradise, hajj and umrah, a prophet and a messenger.

The messenger has a shari'ah and a book but a prophet does not so he has to follow the shar'iah of a previous prophet.

Whatever of good reaches you, is from Allah, but whatever of evil befalls you, is from yourself. And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) as a Messenger to mankind, and Allah is Sufficient as a Witness.

(An-Nisa 4:79)

THE 12 REASONS WHY MUHAMMAD (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) WAS A REAL PROPHET

REASON #1 HIS NOBLE CHARACTER

Long before he became a prophet, he was known as-saadiq al ameen, the trustworthy one.

Have We not opened your breast for you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))? And removed from you your burden, Which weighed down your back? And raised high your fame? And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are on an exalted standard of character.

(Al-Qalam 68:1-4)

The prophets (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) good character was the first reason the scholars mention that the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was a real prophet.

REASON #2 HIS BOOK. THE HOLY QURAN

The prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was illiterate and his book contains no grammatical errors and contains scientific facts that no scientists can refute, whilst living in the desert over 1400 years ago.

A lying, sinful forelock! (Al-'Alaq 96:16)

The scientists ask, how did the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) with no scientific knowledge know that the front part of the brain is the area of the brain, which concocts a lie.

He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together. Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

(Ar-Rahman 55:19-21)

The scientists ask, how could the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) know the sea has two types of water, but they cannot merge together and have a barrier between them.

The knockout punch for the kuffaar is the above ayahs

And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Fir'aun (Pharaoh) with his hosts followed them in oppression and enmity, till when drowning overtook him, he said: "I believe that La ilaha illa (Huwa) : (none has the right to be worshipped but) He," in Whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am one of the Muslims (those who submit to Allah's Will)." Now (you believe) while you refused to believe before and you were one of the Mufsidun (evil-doers, corrupts, etc)

(Yunus 10:90-91)

So this day We shall deliver your (dead) body (out from the sea) that you may be a sign to those who come after you! And verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs , revelations, etc.).

(Yunus 10:92)

The preservation of the pharaoh's body is the Quranic prediction, and it came to pass exactly how the Quran predicted and this shows the prophet hood of the prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was real.

Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?

(Al-Anbiya 21:30)

The above ayah mentions the big bang.

REASON #3 THE PROPHET (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) WAS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL MAN TO WALK THE EARTH

And verily, your Lord will give you (all i.e. good) so that you shall be well-pleased.

(Ad-Duha 93:5)

The kuffaar said the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was the most successful man to walk the earth, as he was able to combine all aspects of life together to achieve success. It only took him 23 years to unite the entire Arabian peninsula.

REASON #4 THE MANY MIRACLES THE PROPHET (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) PERFORMED

The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder (the people of Makkah requested Prophet Muhammad SAW to show them a miracle, so he showed them the splitting of the moon). And if they see a sign, they turn away, and say: "This is continuous magic."

(Al-Qamar 54:1-2)

The kuffar denied the miracle of the moon splitting saying this was magic.

Another miracle of the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was water gushing through the fingers of the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) whilst the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and the sahabah were on a journey and the sahabah ran out of water.

MIRACLE 1:  WATER GUSHED FROM THE FINGERS OF THE RASOOL (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)

Narrated Jabir bin `Abdullah: I was with the Prophet (SAW) and the time for the `Asr prayer became due. We had no water with us except a little, which was put in a vessel and was brought to the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) . He put his hand into it, spread out his fingers, and then said, "Come along! Hurry up! All those who want to perform ablution. The blessing is from Allah.'' I saw the water gushing out from his fingers. 

[Trans Sahih Al Bukhari 5639] [Bukhari Vol: 7 Book 69 Hadith 543]

Another miracle was when the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) found the eye of Qataadah when it got dug out at the battle of Badr.

MIRACLE 2:  RETURNING THE EYE OF QATADAH THAT WAS DUG OUT ON THE BATTLEFIELD

Abd al-Aziz b. Sulaiman b. al-Ghasil, from Asim b. Umar b. Qatada, from his father, from his grandfather Qatada b. al-Numan, that his eye was wounded at Badr and that its pupil came down on his cheekbone. They were about to slice it off, but asked the Messenger of God (SAW) who said they should not do this. He then said a prayer for him, covering his cheek with his palm. And later you could not tell which of his eyes had been struck!" 

{Ibn Kathirs The Life of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), Al-sira Al-Nabawiyya, Vol 2, reported by Al-Bayhaqi stated, in the Dalail (The Signs), "Abu Sad al-Malini informed us quoting Abu Ahmed b. Adi, quoting Abu Yala, quoting Yahya al-Himmant}
  
Another miracle was when one lamb was used to feed approximately 3000 people at the battle of the ditch.

Another miracle of the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was when Abu Bakr (RA) got bitten by a snake in the cave during the hijrah and the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) used his saliva to cure the sting.

MIRACLE 3: CURING THE SNAKE BIT OF ABU BAKR (RA) IN THE CAVE

One example is when our Prophet (S.A.W) and Abu Bakr (R.A) took shelter inside a cave from the Quraish of Mecca who were pursuing them during their journey from Makka to Medina. A snake was waiting inside the same cave as it could not find a way since as Abu Bakr (R.A) had shielded all the holes with his clothes. By Allah! If a single person embraces Islam at your hands (i.e. through you), that will be better for you than the red camels." 

[Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 192]

MIRACLE 4:  CURING THE EYE INFECTION OF ALI AT THE BATTLE OF KHAIBAR

Narrated Sahl bin Sad: That he heard the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) on the day (of the battle) of Khaibar saying, "I will give the flag to a person at whose hands Allah will grant victory." So, the companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) got up, wishing eagerly to see to whom the flag will be given, and everyone of them wished to be given the flag. But the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) asked for Ali (RA). Someone informed him that he was suffering from eye-trouble. So, he ordered them to bring Ali (RA) in front of him. Then the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) spat in his eyes and his eyes were cured immediately as if he had never any eye-trouble. 'Ali said, "We will fight with them (i.e. infidels) till they become like us 

(i.e. Muslims).

Another miracle of the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was when the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) poured a small amount of water in the well of Hudaibiya when the well was dry and all the sahabah and their animals were able to drink from it.

Another miracle was when the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) hit the camel of Jaabir ibn Abdullah (RA) because it was too slow, and when the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) hit it, it became the fastest out of all the camels.

MIRACLE 5:  THE RASOOL HIT THE CAMEL OF JABIR IBN ABDULLAH AND IT BECAME YOUNG AGAIN

Narrated Jabir: While I was riding a (slow) and tired camel, the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) passed by, beat it, and prayed for Allah's Blessings for it. The camel became so fast as it had never been before. The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) then said, "Sell it to me for one Uqiyya (of gold)." I said, "No." He again said, "Sell it to me for one Uqiyya (of gold)." I sold it and stipulated that I should ride it to my house. When we reached (Medina) I took that camel to the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and he gave me its price. I returned home but he sent for me (and when I went to him) he said, "I will not take your camel. Take your camel as a gift for you." (Various narrations are mentioned here with slight variations in expressions relating the condition that Jabir had the right to ride the sold camel up to Medina). 

[Bukhari, Vol 3, Book 50, No 879]
  
The prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) then bought the camel and then told Jaabir to keep the camel and the money.

Stones used to say salaam to the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) in Makkah.

The prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) also had many predictions. Before the battle of Badr, the prophet used his sword and pointed in the sand where all the leaders of Quraysh would die.

Another prediction of the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was, he predicted that the first of his wives to die would be Zainab bint Jahsh (RAA).

MIRACLE 6:  PREDICTION OF ZAINAB BINT JAHSH WILL DIED FOLLOW UP BY DEATH OF PROPHETS 

Narrated 'Aisha: Some of the wives of the Prophet (SAW) asked him, "Who amongst us will be the first to follow you (i.e. die after you)?" He said, "Whoever has the longest hand." So they started measuring their hands with a stick and Sauda's hand turned out to be the longest. (When Zainab bint Jahsh died first of all in the caliphate of 'Umar), we came to know that the long hand was a symbol of practicing charity, so she was the first to follow the Prophet (SAW) and she used to love to practice charity. (Sauda died later in the caliphate of Muawiya).  Thereafter, the Prophet (SAW) traversed the plain and pointed out the spots to his companions where the enemy chiefs were to fall dead. As it was found later on, his predictions proved entirely correct for not a single Quraish chief was found slain at a place different from that indicated by the Prophet of Allah (SAW). When the two contending forces met, the Prophet (SAW) said: O Allah, here come the Quraish in their vanity and pride: they contend with Thee calling Thy Prophet a liar.This was the night of Friday, the seventeenth of Ramadan. At the first manifestation of the morning, the entire force of the Quraish streamed out into the valley and distributed themselves in the battlefield while the Muslims positioned before them in the foreground. (Zad al-Maad, Vol. pp. 343-344)
  
The prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) also predicted that Ammar ibn Yaasir (RA) would be killed by the rebellious group

MIRACLE 7:  PREDICTION OF MURDER OF AMMAR IBN YASIR (RA) BY REBELLIOUS GROUP

Umm Salamah (RA) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, The transgressing party will kill 'Ammar" [Sahih Muslim (4/2236) No. 2916]

The narrators of Islamic traditions and historians transmitted through twenty-five Companions that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said about Hazrat Ammar ibn Yasir (Radiyallahu Anhu): "Alas! A rebellious group which swerves from the truth will murder Ammar. Ammar will be calling them towards Paradise and they will be calling him towards Hell. His killer and those who strip him of arms and clothing will be in Hell." [Al-Bukhari, at-Tirmidhi, Ahmad ibn Hanbal]

This was at the battle of Siffeen, he was killed whilst fighting for the army of Ali (RA) by the army of Muawiyah (RA).

MIRACLE 8:   PREDICTION OF COMING EVENT OF BEFORE LAST HOUR 

Another prediction of the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was that the poor desert Arabs would compete with each other to build tall buildings.
  
Authority of Umar ibn al-Khattab (RA), who said: One day while we were sitting with the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, Jibreel said Tell me about the Hour.” The Prophet (may Allah bless him and his Household and grant them peace) replied, The questioned one is not more knowledgeable about it than the questioner,” Jibril  said," Then tell me about its signs.” He replied, "That the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress, and that you will see barefooted, naked destitute shepherds competing in constructing lofty buildings." Then he [the man] left, and I stayed for a time. Then he [the Prophet (SAW)] said, "O Umar, do you know who the questioner was?" I said, "Allah and His Messenger know best." He said, "It was Jibreel, who came to teach you your religion." 

{It was related by Muslim}

There is competition between Dubai and Saudi Arabia in this regard.

Another reason the prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was a real prophet was the chief rabbi of Medinah Abdullah ibn Salam asked the prophet three questions and the prophet answered these questions correctly.

Those to whom We gave the Scripture (Jews and Christians) recognize him (Muhammad or the Ka'bah at Makkah) as they recognize their sons. But verily, a party of them conceal the truth while they know it - [i.e. the qualities of Muhammad which are written in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)].

(Al-Baqarah 2:146)  

MIRACLE 9    CONQUER CONSTANTINOPLE

Narrated Yahya bin Ishaq from Yahya bin Ayoub from Abu Qabeel who said: We were with 'Abdullah ibn 'Amr ibn al 'Aas and he was asked which city will be conquered first Constantinople or Rome? So 'Abdullah called for a sealed trunk and he said, “Take out a book from it”. Then 'Abdullah said, ‘Whilst we were with the Messenger of Allah writing, The Messenger of Allah was asked, “Which city will be conquered first, Constantinople or Rome?” So Allah's Messenger said: “The city of Heraclius will be conquered first." meaning Constantinople.’ 

[Musnad Ahmad (2/176) No. 6645, Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/598) No. 8662, Sunan Darimi (1/430) No. 503]
