Friday Sermon 10 January 2003.
Today I continue my series of Friday Sermons relating to Divine attributes and further expand the subject in correlation with the means of Allah the Exalted revealing His message to His chosen servants through Kashf. The phenomenon of the visions that the Holy Prophet ? received during his blessed life is elucidated with reference to the statement of Allah Almighty: And it is not granted Allah should speak to man except by revelation or from behind a veil or by sending a Messenger to reveal by His command what He will. He is High and Wise. (The Holy Quran. al-Shoora [The Consultation]: 52). Among the several Traditions the earliest goes back to when the Holy Prophet ? was 10 years old and experienced a vision when alone in a desert of 2 persons encountering him who could come in contact with him without him feeling their touch. These persons incised the Holy Prophet's ? chest and spoke of removing rancour and envy from his heart and replacing it with compassion and mercy. Furthere there is the celebrated tradition of the Holy Prophet ? meditating in the cave of Hira cave when the Angel Gabriel (on whom be peace) manifested himself and brought the message of Allah the Exalted urging Muhammad ? to read what now constitutes the opening verses of Sura al-Alaq [The Clot] . Subsequently some verses of Sura al-Muddaththir [The Cloaked one] were revealed through by Gabriel (on whom be peace) through vision. There are a few Traditions describing visions whereby Gabriel (on whom be peace) would appear and recap the fundamentals of Islam with the Holy Prophet ?. At times, while in his company, the Companions of the Holy Prophet ? would also share the experience of these visions. Visions were received during the holy wars that the Holy Prophet ? participated in, these visions illustrate that Divine help materialized in all sorts of forms in time of need. Indeed the Night Journey of the Holy Prophet ? was a most magnificent Kashf or vision whereby he experienced meeting the great prophets of Allah. The portrayal given for the Messiah in the description of a vision of of the Holy Prophet ? citing the Antichrist is different from the description given for Prophet Jesus (on whom be peace) in another tradition. This was so because in this vision that the Holy Prophet ? received, he had actually seen the Promised Messiah and not Prophet Jesus (on whom be peace) as the Messiah.
