Suddenly, on a bright morning whose brightness has never been seen before
or since, the revelation descended on Muhammad:
96:1 Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who
96:2 Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood:
96:3 Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,-
96:4 He Who taught (the use of) the pen,-
96:5 Taught man that which he knew not.
Then the revelation continued:
74:1 O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)!
74:2 Arise and deliver thy warning!
74:3 And thy Lord do thou magnify!
5:67 O Apostle! proclaim the (message) which hath been sent to thee from thy Lord. If thou didst not, thou wouldst not have fulfilled and proclaimed His mission. And God will defend thee from men (who mean mischief). For God guideth not those who reject Faith.
be sent down. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)
sacrificed a sheep and then commanded his servant, Anas, to invite the
people to partake of it. After they had eaten, two men remained there after
the meal chatting. The Messenger of Allah went out and said goodnight to
his other wives and then came back and the two men were still there
chatting. It was very hard on the Prophet who did not like to criticize people

ashamed to dismiss you, but God is not ashamed (to tell you) the truth. And
when ye ask (his ladies) for anything ye want, ask them from before a
screen: that makes for greater purity for your hearts and for theirs. Nor is
it right for you that ye should annoy God's Apostle, or that ye should marry
his widows after him at any time. Truly such a thing is in God's sight an
One day, the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) was in the house of Aishah and the
revelation came down to him upon which, he smiled and said
Who will go to the house of Zaynab and give her the glad tidings that Allah
has given her to me in marriage from the heaven?
Salma the servant of the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) went happily and
informed Zaynab and she was overjoyed at the news and gave her the silver
jewelry she was wearing to her. Thus Zaynab joined the Mothers of the
Believers, being proud that Allah had betrothed her from the heaven and
she would say to the Messenger of Allah (pbuh)
She said: \u201cI cannot say anything until I have consulted my Allah." She
performed Wudhu, said two rakaat of Salaat, and praye
33:37 Behold! Thou didst say to one who had received the grace of God and
thy favour: "Retain thou (in wedlock) thy wife, and fear God." But thou didst
hide in thy heart that which God was about to make manifest: thou didst
fear the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear God. Then
when Zayd had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with the necessary
