Sohbah of Hajjah Ruqqaiyah Sultan
Dated 19 May 2020 / 26 Ramadan 1441
Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam…..after this Kaaba rebuilding and putting the stone, He, He used to go to ghar-e-hirā for seclusion every, every year, for one month. He was making seclusion there and also it is started that He can see his dream, dreams and dreams become true. Like…..like morning, that true like, like you are seeing, day time, like a reality. And this is because the true dream is like rui’a saleha, it’s like part of Prophethood. It is one part of Prophethood. That most of the Prophets see his dreams and it is become true. There is one, a full surah in Qur’an about Hazrat e Yusuf and his dream and many, many things talking about dreams. Hazrat e Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was in ghar-e-hirā in the Ramadan, in the month of Ramadan. He was between sleeping and waking. Suddenly angel was appearing to him and holding him and saying read, ‘Iqra’. Then he was afraid, he is afraid and what, what shall I read and he was squeezing him and letting him back and say ‘Iqra’ again. Said, ‘Ma ana bi qari’, I don’t know how to read, what, what shall I read, what I read, three times and then third time say ‘Iqra bismi rab bikal lazee khalaq. Khalaqal insaana min ‘alaq. Iqra wa rab bukal akram. Al lazee ‘allama bil qalam. ‘Al lamal insaana ma lam y’alam’, this until this part, he was telling him and then he disapppeared. Then Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was coming to himself and going out of the cave. On the halfway from the cave he’s looking in this, Hazrat Jibreel is standing on the sky and full everywhere, he’s filling everywhere, everywhere He looked, He see, he say, ‘Ya Muhammad, Anta Rasoolallah, Ana Jibreel’, you are Rasoolallah, I am, I am Jibreel. Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was looking there see him repeating, repeating the same thing for him and he could not move further or back, he’s in the middle of the mountain for so long. Even that Hazrat e Khadija was worried, she sent somebody to look for him and they could not find him in the mountain, they came back.
After, after a while Hazrat e Jibreel disappeared. And then He came home, He was shaking, shivering, shivering and he was tell, Hazrat e Khadija was worried, He said maybe I am, I don’t know I have, either I am getting crazy or something happened to me. Or you know, what then or some like jinn or something telling her like this. She said, no you will not have anything bad, anything bad will not have because you are always doing good. You are always looking after the poor, you are looking after your relatives, you are talking your right and you never do any, any sin, you cannot, you know its nothing wrong with you that something happening to you, that something…..coming to, harm you. Then he was telling her, what was, what going, what happened. She said I go and talk to my, uncle. Uncle, cousin. He was cousin Waraqa bin Naufal, he was christian, christian and pious one, he knew about this. He was not on the religion what Quraysh people are doing and She went and told him about this and he told…..She, She told him this, this happened to Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wasallam. He was so happy, he said this is ‘namoos al-akbar’, this means who, the big angel coming, who came to Moosa, big angel who came to Moosa. He is the Prophet that is expected to come, He is, He is, I wish that I live long that I be with him, I defend him, I protect him. Because his people were, will harm him, will reject him, will not believe in him. It will be difficult for him.
But he give good tiding so he went and she went and told Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam habit was that he was making tawaf before he goes to his house, when he comes back from his seclusion, but it was that day after this he was calming he went to tawaf, then he saw Waraqa came also there and he was asking him, about how it is and he was saying to him, that this also again that same things what He said to Hazrat e Khadija. So he was Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was calming. Then he was, he didn’t go again to the ghar after that…. Then he was expecting that Hazrat e Jibreel coming for him, there is many sayings that he came and read for him mudassir, surat ul mudassir or Iqra first, mudassir later and then it was stopped. He stopped for few weeks then Hazrat e Khadija, was telling him ‘ Rabbuka Kala’, your Allah forgot you Astagfirullah, in a way that, your not forgot but left you, then it was coming surah duha (30:1,2,3), ‘Wad duhaa. Wal laili iza sajaa. Ma wad da’aka rabbuka wa ma qalaa’, that Allah Azza wa Jalla not left you, not say to you bye – bye and didn’t leave you and didn’t forgot you or didn’t leave you behind or neglect you, neglect you. And after that Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was, first believer in Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam it was Hazrat e Khadija his wife, Hazrat e Khadija, first was from man, Hazrat e Abu Bakr. Also Hazrat e Ali, Hazrat e Ali was only ten years old that time and Hazrat e Zaid the son, son, slave of…..slave of but it was set free, his servant Zaid.
Hazrat Ali was his mother, Hazrat e Fatima. Her name was also Fatima she was pregnant in him and then she was, she had lots of pain and, in hers tummy, they know it was known that somebody has something, some illness or some pain or something that Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, this was before his Prophethood if he touch it, it will go. So she came to, said ‘Muhammad put your hand on my tummy I have so much tummy ache’. Hazrat Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, ‘If you give me the one in your tummy I will put my hand’, then after that it was Hazrat e Ali. Hazrat e Ali was born. In few years it was that Hazrat e Abu Talib had lots of children then Hazrat e Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was taking Hazrat e Ali to his home, to be with him, to look after him that he’s uncle is, to not to be burden on his uncle. His brother, his cousin. He took his cousin. So Hazrat e Ali was ten years old and Zaid was slave, was, they…..it was war and they took him as war prisoner but they sold him as a slave. Hazrat e Khadija bought him and give him as a present to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam that time and Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, He loved him so much that He set him free. After a while his father came, his father came from his tribe, the timing this timing. His father came and ask for him to go back, he wants, he said to take him back with him and he said he will pay for his, like money to take him back. Hazrat e Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, ‘I don’t, I don’t ask for money, ask him, he wants to go back I will let him go with you and let him make choice between, me and you’, then he was choosing Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, Zaid and this is story of Zaid
And Hazrat e Abu Bakr was also very close friend to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam since the young hood that his mother was also, she didn’t have any children or she didn’t have a boy or I don’t know, I am not very sure about it, but she didn’t, she was making oath that if I have, if I have a son I will give it to Kaaba. So it was, Allah blessed her with Abu Bakr Siddiq. And then, he never also worship idol. He was also not worshipping any idol in all his life. He was the first Muslim man as a child and also as a second man and Zaid and Hazrat e Ali. Was three of them and Hazrat e Khadija was the first lady. There was, in, after that Hazrat e Osman and Hazrat e Abu Ubaidah and you know many, they were coming and they were, was calling for three years secretly. Not telling any, only from people to people they know. Not openly, so in three years they were only forty people becoming muslim. One of them is also, I always tell the Europeans that they are proud, Suhayb, there is Suhayb Rumi and this is, he was, his title was Rumi. He came from Damascus as a slave, he was from the Romans, some say that he was a roman some say he was Arab but he was grown with, from with, from with Romans, but his Nick name, his Nick name was Rumi. Rumi it means that from Europe from Romans, so he was also one of them. And Bilal Habashi from Habesha and Salman Al Farsi later on but forty people. So this is forty people until three years, there was only forty people were becoming muslim. Now we stop here and I want to, today is the night of power, Laylatul Qadr.
Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq
Al – Fatiha.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.
Today…..is tonight Insha Allah, Alhamdulilah it is Laylatul Qadr. The Night of Power, the Qadr. ‘Inna anzalnaahu fee laylatil Qadr’, Allah Azza wa Jalla with blessing, He revealed all Qur’an the Night of Qadr. Laylatul Qadr it is from heavens, descended from the heavens till the sky of world, world sky, the first sky, the first heaven to the World. It was Qur’an all complete came to the Bait ul Izzah, this special place where it is also over Kaaba and this and twenty three years Jibreel Alaihissalam was bringing slowly, slowly surah’s, ayahs to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam for every what incidents or orders or also basheer, good tidings, bad tidings, warning and tonight it is blessed night. Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was telling that u have to read, look for in whole Ramadan, but He was mostly saying it is look in the last ten days and specially in the odd nights. So here, some people say it is 21st, some say 23rd, some say 25, two days before there was one lady from Arabia she was sending it is tonight and some but mostly they say it is 27, the night of 27 because they make calculations, Arabic calculations, Laylatul Qadr – Qadr – wa maa adraka maa laylatul qadri – laylatul qadri khayrum min alfee shahr. So the calculations of them, the Qadr night which means 9 – 9 – 9 is 27. Arabic, they have special calculation method. Arabs, it is so, they say mostly they celebrate it 27th. And now I was reading also about thing that they say if Ramadan started Saturday or Sunday it is on the 21st.
If Ramadan started on Tuesday or Wednesday it is on the 25th. If it started on Friday it is on the 27th but Allah knows. This was written today I saw this in the book. And there is prayer also, there is a special prayer for – four rakah’s for Laylatul Qadr after Taraweeh you pray, of course we pray Tasabeeh, the prayer of Tasabeeh but four rakah’s, for to make intention it is Laylatul Qadr prayer. It is one Fatiha, one ‘Alhākumu at- takāthur’ and three Ikhlas and if you don’t know‘Alhākumu at- takāthur’ , you read eleven Ikhlas. Four rakah’s and after that you make du’ā for, for yourself, for your family, for your anyone you like and ask. Hazrat e Aisha (RA) was asking, ‘what to make du’ā, Ya Rasoolallah’. Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was saying, ‘say, Allāhumma innā nas’aluka l-‘afwa wa l’āfiyah wa l-muafa d-deen wa d-duniya wa l-akhirah’ or ‘Allhumma sturna bi sitrika l-jamil’ or ‘Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibbul-‘afwa, fa’fu ‘anni ya kareem.This three du’ās ask for forgiveness. This is most the main thing is forgiveness here and hereafter. This is the Blessing of Allah Azza wa Jalla for tonight.
There is Hadith Qudsi or Hadith Sharif, I am not very sure about it but that Allah Azza wa Jalla said , He send salam to Hazrat e Nuh Alaihisalam, ‘Salamun Ala Nuhin’, fil A’lameen and he saved him from flood and Allah send salam to Hazrat e Ibrahim Alaihisalam, ‘Salamun Ala Ibrahim’ and saved him from fire and Allah send ‘Salam ala Moosa wa Haroon’ saved them from Firaun, pass the sea. Allah send salam on Isa Alaihissalam make him to make, to dead people can become alive, rise dead people only. And He send salam on Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, give him Shafa’at. Shafa’at in his ummah and send salam on his ummah in the night of Qadr that give them Ramadan and send salam put this night holy night and them send salam from in this night to save them from judgement day from hell. From and Allah Azza wa Jalla was saying that Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam was asking for forgiveness and asking for his nation for his ummah and answer from Allah Azza wa Jalla coming saying, ‘Why you are worried’?, I am for your mu’min nation for your mu’min ummah, people, I make for them Maqam like Prophet’s Maqam. I send them I put them a night, a holy night in the year that from evening till the morning there is all the angels, I am sending angels Jibreel and Mika’il and Israfil and they collect all the so many angels with them and each angel has 70,000 angels with him and each angel has also 70,000 angel. They all come to the whole night. I send them they visit all the muslims and mu’mins houses till morning and they give salam and if they are sitting they give salam, the angels, if they are reading Qur’an, making Dhikr Hazrat e Jibreel Alaihisalam giving salam. If they are praying Allah Azza wa Jalla himself giving salam to them. From night, from the Maghrib till the morning prayer so make sure Insha Allah to pray and to make dua’ā tonight and every night Insha Allah. This you have to be awake, awaken about it, alert about it. Allah and this is what Insha Allah. Allah help us to can do it and can see it Insha Allah. Allah Azza wa Jalla write us as a good with our good will Insha Allah and give us Rahma and the angels coming with four flags. This I wanted to tell also, forgot, four flags – flag of Rahma, flag of maghfirah, Flag of Hamd and Flag of karam.
The Flag of Rahma – the Mercy they put it on top of Kaaba. The Flag of Maghfirah- forgiveness flag they put it on top of Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam’s Holy Maqam. The Flag of Karam- the generosity flag they put it over the Bait al Muqaddas, Masjid al Aqsa. And the Flag of Hamd they put it between earth and sky and they coming like rain, angels coming like rain, visiting every house of muslim, every muslim house, every believer house, they visit. Some houses they only come from outside. They don’t go in. Some they come in, some they hug, some they give salam and some they hug the people, the angels that they don’t come in the house it is muslim house, mu’min house but they cannot in because inside the house there is statue or there is drink alcohol, wine and there is also dog. They come from the door, they don’t go in. They come in, the owner is sleeping, tired. There is tired, not making any worshipping only sleeping, they come inside and give salam. They give salam like this or hugging angels when it is reading Qur’an or making du’ā or making Dhikr and coming salam from Allah Azza wa Jalla when is praying, when standing for prayers. Allah Azza wa Jalla sometimes you feel that you are shivering or saying this is means that the angels are touching you Insha Allah.
