waraqa ibn nawfal
« on: June 19, 2017, 12:34:23 PM »
we know that many people say that waraqa ibn nawfal taught the prophet etc. but how do we explain this hadith as muslims:


bukhari volume 1 , book 1 hadith 3,

This is the same one who keeps the secrets (angel Gabriel) whom Allah had sent to Moses. I wish I were young and could live up to the time when your people would turn you out." Allah's Apostle asked, "Will they drive me out?" Waraqa replied in the affirmative and said, "Anyone (man) who came with something similar to what you have brought was treated with hostility; and if I should remain alive till the day when you will be turned out then I would support you strongly." But after a few days Waraqa died and the Divine Inspiration was also paused for a while.

so they already claim waraqa taught the prophet and when waraqa died the revelation stopped. Why did this happen as such and how do i answer this.

It stopped because The Prophet SAW was depressed and never went to the Mount Hira where he would get his revelations,because in his first years of Prophethood he always had to go to Mount Hira to get his revelation,but when he was depressed he couldnt go there.
