Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa Barakatu

 

 

1) Why were the angels reluctant for Allah(SWT) to create Human beings?

 

Either they already knew what they would do on earth or they already had experience with the Jinn and they assumed that the humans are going to the same direction.

For sure they did not understand the Wisdom, but Allah knew.

 

2) What is the difference between a messenger and a prophet?

 

The messenger is a prophet who delivers the Risala.

 

3) What was the first thing that was created?

 

According to one narration it was the Pen.

 

4) What were the other types of creatures apart from Humans and what are they made off?

 

Jinn are made of smokeless fire (electricity?) and Angels are made of light.

5) What was Iblis and what was he made from?

 

Iblis was a Jinn made of fire.

 

6) How does the Quran and Sunnah tell us different people of different colours came about?

 

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala took dust from different regions of the earth which were in different colors and with different qualities. Water was added to the dust so it became clay and then after drying in the sun it became sticky clay and then black smooth mud. This material was formed to the shape of Adam and it became clay like pottery. Then the soul was put in Adam and Adam was. His descendants came out with different colors and with different qualities according to the sand.

 

7) How many years did Aadam(AS) give Dawud(AS)?

 

40 years

 

 

8) What age did the angel of death come to Aadam(AS)?

 

1000 - 40 = 960

 

9) What was the family background of sheeth?

 

He was the son of Adam alayhissalam.

 

10) Where is Sheeth(AS) mentioned? Quran or Sunnah?

 

Sunnah

Seven

 

 

12) What number heaven did prophet Muhamed(SWS) meet Idris(AS) when me made the dissention?

 

Fourth Heaven

 

13) Who are the 5 Walil Azam?

2. Ibraheem alayhissalam

3. Musa alayhissalam

4. Isa ben Maryam alayhissalam

5. Nuh alayhissalam

 

14) How many years of Dawaa’ did Prophet Nuh(AS) give?

 

950

 

15) What did the people ask Saleh(AS) to create from Rock to prove he was a prophet?

 

a She-camel

16) What were the 3 restrictions when Allah(SWT) made this happen?

 

- they don't harm the camel

They plotted to kill it.

 

 

18) How many of they planned this?

19) What was the message given to the people after the committed their act of war against Saleh(AS) and how did they act?

 

After they killed the she-camel they tried to kill the family of Saleh. They received the message that they have only three days to live. The people of Thamud were so busy with dunya that they did not care about the incident. They believed because of their secure homes inside solid rock they are safe. Through their arrogance they believed that nothing can harm them.

 

20) How were they punished?

 

While they were in their beds inside their homes inside carved in solid rock, a heavy sound wave appeared and killed them.

 

21) Why did they whole nation get punished and not just those individuals?

 

They were silent majority who did not interfere in the evil of the evil 9. They were bystanders who did not interfere therefore they were included in the punishment. On the other side we know from a hadeeth that if a punishment is upon a nation it also destroys the good among them. But in akhira then they are treated according to their deeds.

 

22) How many times is Ibrahim(AS) mentioned in the Quran?

He destroyed the all idols, except for one.

 

 

28) What What was his punishment?

 

being burnt alive

 

 

29) Relate the story when Ibrahim(AS) met the powerful dictator?

 

Ibraheem alayhissalam talked with Nimrod about the issue of life and death. Nimrod boasted that he is able to give life and death by executing someone and by free someone from execution. Ibraheem did not continue with this topic in the debate, because he recognized that Nimrod only wants to argue and turns it into a joke. Ibraheem changed the topic and defeated Nimrod with information that he cannot deny. Ibraheem asked Namrud to bring the sun from the west. He was utterly defeated.

 

 

30) How did Ibrahim(AS) end the debate with this dictator?

 

He defeated the Nimrod by changing the topic. He asked the king to bring the sun from the west.

 

 

31) Relate the story of the birds? What exactly happened?

 

Ibraheem alayhissalam already had the level of Ilmu-Yakeen and wanted to reach the level of Aynu-Yakeen. Therefore, he asked Allah to perform a miracle in front of his eyes. He was told to grind four birds and them on four mountains. The birds came back alive.

 

 

32) Which prophet was the nephew of Ibrahim(AS) and the only believer at that time?

 

The prophet was Luth alayhissalam

 

 

33) What were the three lies of Ibrahim(AS)?

 

1. When he was in his town the people went to a festival, but Ibraheem did not want to go so he told them the he was sick. But this was not a lie, because it was true that he was sick of their action.

2. When the people asked him who destroyed the idols, Ibraheem told them that the Biggest Idol did it. This was for Dawah.

3. Sara was a beautiful woman and the wife of Ibraheem. When they came to Egypt, Ibraheem was scared that they kill him and take Sara. This would happen if they knew that she was his wife. Therefore, they agreed to tell them that she is his sister. This is not a lie because she was a believer and she was the sister of Ibraheem, a Sister in Islam.

 

 

34) What is the story behind how Ibrahim came to know Hajjar, his wife to be?

(note lots of marks for this question, so don’t leave out any important details)

 

The Egyptians took Sarah the wife of Ibraheem and the King of Egypt wanted to have her as wife or concubine, but everytime he wanted to touch her Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala protected her by sending ayat upon him. After it repeated he decided not to have her and set her free and as a gift he gave her Hajar. Hajar later married Ibraheem.

 

 

35) How did ZamZam come about? Relate the exact story.

(note lots of marks for this question, so don’t leave out any important details)

 

Ibraheem alayhissalam and Hajar came to a deserted land. In that place Ibraheem told her to stay. Hajar first was wondering why he leaves her there. When she found out that this was an order of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala she became faithful and put her trust in Allah. They lived in the deserted land with dates and some water. The dates and the water ran out. So Hajar needed water and food. She thought that their may be people passing by so she made the sa'y to check if their were bedouins etc. After the seventh time, she suddenly heard a sound coming from underneath the ground. The Angel Jibreel appeared next to Ishma'eel who was with her all the time. Suddenly, water came out of the ground from the spot where Isma'eel lied. The water came out like a fountain, but Hajar raheematullah ran to that spot and interfered because she thought that the water may go into the sand and be gone. Because of the interference it became a well. If she left it, it would be a flowing stream. The well is named Zam-Zam because Hajar said zam zam while digging the well.

 

 

36) What happened when Ibrahim(AS) went to visit Ismail(AS)?

 

Ibraheem went to the house of Ishmael, but only his wife was present. He asked the wife about their life and she started complaining about their life. He told her to give salam to Ishma'eel and to tell him to change the doorstep. When Ishma'eel arrived home he already felt that Ibraheem was there and he asked his wife if there was a visitor and she replied with: "And elderly person visited her and asked me to deliver salams to you and to tell you to change your doorstep." Ishma'eel knew that it was his father and that he ordered him to divorce this wife. (His obedience toward his father and prophet needs to studied deeply!!!!!!) Ishma'eel divorced his wife and later another wife. Ibraheem alayhissalam visited Ishma'eel again and found his wife alone. She was very content and Ibraheem was happy with her.

 

 

37) Did Ismail(AS) take the advice of his father? Then what happened the second time Ibrahim(AS) went to visit Ismail(AS)?

 

Ibraheem alayhissalam visited Ishma'eel again and found his wife alone. She was very content and Ibraheem was happy with her.

 

 

 

38) How did Ibrahim(AS)get the message to sacrifise Ismail(AS)?

 

Through a vision which appeared to him in a dream. Dreams of the Prophets are Revelations which are Wahy.

 

39) Why can’t someone’s father start to slaughter their own child taking Ibrahim(AS) as an example?

 

because Ibraheem did not slaughter his son but an animal which was replaced to Ibraheem. Ibraheem also knew from the example of the birds that Allah can bring back Ishma'eel anytime like He did with the four birds. If Ibraheem ground his son life these birds and put them on a mountain Allah would give life back to him and Ishma'eel returns. This is the Trust Ibraheem put in Allah. Ibraheem already had the Aynu-Yakeen in these things, so to fulfill this task was easy for him. This is not a sunnah because he did not slaughter his son. It was part of the wisdom of Allah that He did not let Ibraheem slaughter his son, because in his foreknowledge Allah knew that if he would slaughter his son then the people after him would take this as a sunnah. Human sacrifice is prohibited and this incident does not permit human sacrifice. However, there were people who did not understand the story who started human sacrifice as part of the religion (moloch).

 

40) Who started to build the Kabba?

 

It is Ibraheem alayhissalam and his son Ishma'eel alayhissalam who built the Kaaba. If they were the first who built it we don't know. However, they were at least the first after the flood.

 

 

 

 

Questions about the Story of Nuh alayhissalam and Hud alayhissalam are not covered yet. This assumes that there will be a second part?
