Assalamualaikum.wr wt. Allahumma rabbana zidna ilma, Allahumma rabbana ihdinassiratalmustaqim, Amma ba’du
We had learn from the first 5 verses that Allah teaches us not to feel that our dua to Him will not be answered. Whether it’s now or the hereafter.The dua if accepted by our Lord or Rabb can take place immediately or takes time.
Eg. When a child is conceived then it takes 9 months to be born
But angel2 Allah created them spontaneously in full grown. But we’re too anxious to have our dua accepted.. this attitude towards our Lord .. give opportunity for satan to take advantage.. So we go to see bomohs.. thats wrong
Our dua to Allah:: we can quote this story of prophet zachariya as precedent case. We read the verses and say O my Lord , Thy had given Zachariya a son while he was an old man 120 years old n his was barren and mono pause.
My dua O my Lord/Rabb.. is..
Please grant me my dua as Thy had granted Zachariya a son.. So todays lesson.. verse 7
Surah Maryam, Verse 7:
يَا زَكَرِيَّا إِنَّا نُبَشِّرُكَ بِغُلَامٍ اسْمُهُ يَحْيَىٰ لَمْ نَجْعَل لَّهُ مِن قَبْلُ سَمِيًّا
O Zakariya! surely We give you good news of a boy whose name shall be Yahya: We have not made before anyone his equal.
Allah is telling u all.. O zakariya! …his dua was answered, We give u good news of a son. … from another sura … whilè he was doing solat in his mehrab.. jew only solat in mehrab or their temple.. we muslims can solat anywhere .. from other sura.. he was enlightened when he saw Maryam received food from the heaven every day
His name shall be Yahya ..means one who shall live… his name were remembered. On none by that name We conferred distinction before.. ie .. there was no one who had that name before. Yahya is John in bible.
Man if were given good news would become shocked.. amazed…terpesir..This was the amazement of Zakariya as
Surah Maryam, Verse 8:
قَالَ رَبِّ أَنَّىٰ يَكُونُ لِي غُلَامٌ وَكَانَتِ امْرَأَتِي عَاقِرًا وَقَدْ بَلَغْتُ مِنَ الْكِبَرِ عِتِيًّا
He said: O my Lord! when shall I have a son, and my wife is barren, and I myself have reached indeed the extreme degree of old age?
He said to Allah. O my Lord/Rabb!! How shall I had a son, when my wife is barren and I have to a very old age?…. he was 120 years old. He was asking … it is true.. not that he doesn’t believe in the Lord.. just a question, Or he was asking… do I need to marry a young wife or do Allah want to make him and wife young again.
Surah Maryam, Verse 9:
قَالَ كَذَٰلِكَ قَالَ رَبُّكَ هُوَ عَلَيَّ هَيِّنٌ وَقَدْ خَلَقْتُكَ مِن قَبْلُ وَلَمْ تَكُ شَيْئًا
He said: So shall it be, your Lord says: It is easy to Me, and indeed I created you before, when you were nothing.
The Lord said to him: So…it shall be… just like that. Allah can create immediately. The Lord said to him: Thats easy for Me.. ….as easy as.. I had created u before n … at that time… u had not been anything. I had created u before and at that time u are nothing before. But man as always when he knows his project were approved… he would want the letter of confirmation of approval..
Surah Maryam, Verse 10:
قَالَ رَبِّ اجْعَل لِّي آيَةً قَالَ آيَتُكَ أَلَّا تُكَلِّمَ النَّاسَ ثَلَاثَ لَيَالٍ سَوِيًّا
He said: My Lord! give me a sign. He said: Your sign is that you will not be able to speak to the people three nights while in sound health.
He said to his Lord Allah, My Lord! Give me a sign …that Thy accept my dua… Allah answer: the sign is that u cant be able to speak to anyone for 3 nights…. and days.. although you’re not dump …or sick.. From this verse .. u can have the capability to speak but if Allah dont want u to… then u cant speak, So speaking itself is a gift
So Zakariya can’t speak for 3 days and night… so he knew that his wife is pregnant
Surah Maryam, Verse 11:
فَخَرَجَ عَلَىٰ قَوْمِهِ مِنَ الْمِحْرَابِ فَأَوْحَىٰ إِلَيْهِمْ أَن سَبِّحُوا بُكْرَةً وَعَشِيًّا
So he went forth to his people from his place of worship, then he made known to them that they should glorify (Allah) morning and evening.
So Zakariya went to his followers from his mehrab. And he told them …by sign language that his wife is with child… and told them to praise Allah in the morning and evening… all the time. Arab language when said like means all day and night
