Lives of the Prophets
Sayyedna Adam (A.S)
Introduction
Key points of the topic.
Allah Says:
We relate unto you the best of stories.’ (12:3)
 These are the best of stories because they are dealing with the best of creation.
  • Some of the benefits talking about the Anbiya

1)      It is the commandment of Allah Almighty.
2)      These stories are for us to drive a lesson and reflect and to contemplate and to think about deeply reflect on them.
3)      They are those whom Allah has guided so follow their guidance because they are the best.
4)      To love them. If we do not know someone, we cannot love him.
5)       
  • The difference between the Prophet and the Messenger

Every Prophet is not a messenger but every messenger is a Prophet. If the Prophet is given a new law, he becomes a Rasool and if he is not given a new law, then he is the Nabi, only a Prophet.
Translate the message into my professional and personal life.
It is the duty of every Muslim to learn the stories of Anbiya as Allah commanded Prophet (PBUH) to relate these stories to the people so that they reflect on them and get the lessons.

The Story of Creation
Key points of the topic.
  • The story of creation.
  • Rizq is sustenance what Allah will provide us.
Rasool (SAW) says in the hadith narrated by Muslim, ‘Allah wrote down the sustenance of the creation fifty thousand years before He created the heaven and the earth.
  • The angels were created from light.
  • The jinn they were created from fire.
  • Adam was created from dirt.
The problem, issues or disease.
·         Struggle to earn money and devoting whole life to gain wealth.
Solution.
·         Don’t make the earning of money the sole purpose of life as Prophet (PBUH) stated that sustenance of the creation is prewritten and even 50 thousand years before the creation of heaven and earth.
Translate the message into my professional and personal life.
We should not strive only for getting wealth and remain busy in thoughts of money making as whatever we do we will get the share which is already decided by Allah Almighty so we should pay attention to obey Allah and strive hard to get His pleasure.
