Informing the Angels About Adam
Allah the Almighty revealed:
"Remember when your Lord said to the angels: 'Verily, I am going to place mankind generations after generations on earth.' They said: 'Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood, while we glorify You with praises and thanks (exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners) and sanctify You.' Allah said: 'I know that which you do not know.'
Allah taught Adam all the names of everything, then He showed them to the angels and said: "Tell Me the names of these if you are truthful." They (angels) said: "Glory be to You, we have no knowledge except what You have taught us. Verily, it is You, the All-Knower, the All-Wise."
He said: "O Adam! Inform them of their names," and when he had informed them of their names, He said: "Did I not tell you that I know the unseen in the heavens and the earth, and I know what you reveal and what you have been hiding?"
Remember when We said to the angels: "Prostrate yourself before Adam" They prostrated except Iblis, he refused and was proud and was one of the disbelievers(disobedient to Allah)."
We said: "O Adam! Dwell you and your wife in the Paradise and both of you freely with pleasure and delight of things therein as wherever you will but come not near this tree or you both will be of the Zalimeen (wrongdoers)." Then the Satan made them slip therefrom (the Paradise), and got them out from that in which they were. We said: "Get you down all with enmity between yourselves. On earth will be a dwelling place for you and an enjoyment for a time."
Then Adam received from his Lord Words. His Lord pardoned him (accepted his repentance). Verily He is the One Who forgives (accepts repentance), the most Merciful.
We said: "Get down all of you from this place (the Paradise), then whenever there comes to you Guidance from Me, and whoever follows My Guidance there shall be no fear on them, nor shall they grieve. But those who disbelieve and belie Our Ayah (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, and signs and revelations, etc) such are the dwellers of the Fire, they shall abide therein forever." (Chapter 2:30-39, Qur'an).
Almighty Allah also revealed:
"And surely, We created you (your father Adam) and then gave you shape (the noble shape of a human being), then We told the angels, "Prostrate to Adam", and they prostrated, except Iblis, he refused to be those who prostrate. Allah said: "What prevented you (O Iblis) that you did not postrate when I commanded you?"
Iblis said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire and him You created from clay."
Allah said: "O Iblis get down from this (Paradise), it is not for you to be arrogant here. Get out for you are of those humiliated and disgraced." Iblis said: "Allow me respite till the Day they are raised up (Day of Resurrection)."
Allah said: "You are of those allowed respite."
Iblis said: "Because You have sent me astray, surely I will sit in wait against them (human beings) on Your Straight Path....

R.C.V ORAL QUIZ ON SATURDAY
French Quiz on Sun
R.C.V WRITTEN QUIZ ON MONDAY
In general society, people are extremely shallow and are attracted to others physically instead of emotionally. The outward appearance of someone has more meaning to the human eye than one’s inner beauty, unfortunately. Khalil Gibran’s “On Beauty” chapter in his novel, The Prophet, discusses many of his idealistic views on beauty. Written in 1923, The Prophet has many aspects that still apply today, but also some that do not. Idealistically, people should search for inner beauty when seeking a significant other rather than outer beauty; but realistically people do not. Gibran speaks mostly of how beauty is humbleness and kindness: he does not speak of outer appeal. He uses a lot of imagery, metaphors, and similes to visually show the readers how beautiful and important he thinks the soul is. Khalil Gibran seems to have idealistic views on the ideas of what beauty is, not realistic views compared to today’s time and even his own time.
In Gibran’s time, all the women were beginning to rebel. They all began to wear shorter skirts, tight corsets, and pants; they also cut their hair into a ‘bob,’ the blunt, chin-length hair. The girls also began to wear cosmetics to attract older boys. They became sex symbols to men and icons to women; that is when it started becoming truly insignificant whether one had a good personality or not. Gibran did not interpret the 1920s views the same way others did; he repeatedly used imagery to convey...
...terms"Seal of the Prophets" & "Seal of the Messengers"
"Muhammad is... the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets..."-Qur'an 33:40
"Universally, the Prophets are of two kinds. One are the independent Prophets Who are followed; the other kind are not independent and are themselves followers.
The independent Prophets are the lawgivers and the founders of a new cycle. Through Their appearance the world puts on a new garment, the foundations of religion are established, and a new book is revealed. Without an intermediary They receive bounty from the Reality of the Divinity, and Their illumination is an essential illumination. They are like the sun which is luminous in itself: the light is its essential necessity; it does not receive light from any other star. These Dawning-places of the morn of Unity are the sources of bounty and the mirrors of the Essence of Reality.
The other Prophets are followers and promoters, for they are branches and not independent; they receive the bounty of the independent Prophets, and they profit by the light of the Guidance of the universal Prophets. They are like the moon, which is not luminous and radiant in itself, but receives its light from the sun.
The Manifestations of universal Prophethood Who appeared independently are, for example, Abraham, Moses, Christ, Muhammad, the Bab and Baha'u'llah. But the others...
...Prophet Muhammad was a religious, political, and military leader from Mecca who unified Arabia into a single religious polity under Islam. He is believed by Muslims and Baha'is to be a messenger and prophet of God. Muhammad is almost universally considered by Muslims as the last prophet sent by God for mankind.[n 1] Non-Muslims regard Muhammad as the founder of Islam. Muslims consider him to be the restorer of an unaltered original monotheistic faith of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets.
Born in about 570 CE in the Arabian city of Mecca, he was orphaned at an early age and brought up under the care of his uncle Abu Talib. He later worked mostly as a merchant, as well as a shepherd, and was first married by age 25. Being in the habit of periodically retreating to a cave in the surrounding mountains for several nights of seclusion and prayer, he later reported that it was there, at age 40, that he received his first revelation from God. Three years after this event Muhammad started preaching these revelations publicly, proclaiming that "God is One", that complete "surrender" to Him is the only way acceptable to God, and that he himself was a prophet and messenger of God, in the same vein as other Islamic prophets.
Muhammad gained few followers early on, and was met with hostility from some Meccan tribes; he and his followers were treated harshly. To escape...
...Prophet Isa p.b.u.h. is the 24th Prophet, who came after Prophet Yahya p.b.u.h. and before Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h.. Prophet Isa was born by a virgin mother, Maryam and had his revelation at the age of 30. After he had his revelation, Prophet Isa had performed many miracles to gain the trust of the people of his time. The main miracles he performed were curing illness and even supplicate Allah Almighty to bring back a dead person alive. The people of his time were known for their high knowledge in medications. In his teachings, he taught his people to believe and worship the one and only God, Allah Almighty. He also taught his people to follow the Ten Commandments. Prophet Isa is the only prophet who is still alive to this day. Prophet Isa was ascended to heaven and is worshipping Allah. After the ascension of Prophet Isa, there are people who have manipulated his teachings and believed him as the Son of God. These people are the Christianity’s followers who also reject the teachings of Prophet Muhammad. It is believed that Prophet Isa will be descended back to earth before the Judgement Day and rules the earth with the teachings of Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h, to fight Dajjal and bring peace to the earth.
Prophet Isa p.b.u.h. was chosen as the main topic of this assignment, to...
...al-Muttalib was the founder of the religion Islam. Muslims believe that he is the messenger of Islam and that he is the last prophet of God, Allah. Prophet Muhammad is to be the last of many prophets before him, according to the Quran, the holy book of Islam. Prophet Muhammad guided people in every aspect of their lives. The Hadiths, Sunnahs, and political leadership that Prophet Muhammad had, make him the most influential person in human history.
A hadith means an action or saying Prophet Muhammad has been referenced in doing or saying in his lifetime. Hadiths are interpreted differently by each school. Muslims have been divided into two different subcultures, Sunnis and Shias, over who should be the political/spiritual leader of the Muslims. Though there is an indecisive choice of leader, both parties still believe and follow the hadiths of the prophet, to their own interpretations.
Sunnah is defined as the practices of Prophet Muhammad that he taught and instituted into Islam. The Quran doesn’t tell Muslims how to be a Muslim, nor does the Quran have legislation. Because of that, Prophet Muhammad had to become a political leader as well. The prophet didn’t become a legislator, but he did believe and tacitly approve the actions, practices, beliefs, and laws of Islam. His Sunnahs, till this day, have not changed.
...Role of the Prophet
A prophet is a spokesperson for God. The prophet admonishes, warns, directs, encourages, intercedes, teaches and counsels. He brings the word of God to the people of God and calls the people to respond.
The prophetic ministry begins in the presence of the Lord. This aspect of the ministry is well described in Jeremiah's challenge to the false prophets.
Which of them has stood in the council of the Lord to see or to hear his word? If they had stood in his council they would have proclaimed his words to his people and they would have turned from their evil ways and from their evil deeds. Jeremiah 23:18,22.
When the prophet knows the heart and mind of the Lord, he speaks the word of the Lord to his people. He stands before the people as one who has stood before God. Because his words come from the heart of God they are powerful and effective.
A prophet can undertake a huge variety of roles. This is an expression of the creativity of God. A prophet may act in every role occasionally, but mostly he will move in one or two of these roles. Prayer will be important for every ministry. No two prophets should be the same, but each should be a reflection of God's creativity and calling.
The call of a prophet usually but not always includes his job description (John and Paula Sanford - The Elijah Task p.42).
Some of the roles...
...HOW DID THE PROPHETS FUNCTION IN ISRAEL?
The word prophet is an English word that was translated from a Hebrew term nabi. According to the scholars, a Prophet is an individual who speaks out the mind and the words of God under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. This implies that a prophet is a God’s spokesperson and his prophetic message comes from a Supernatural source but they are not a product of his thoughts. Moses is the most famous Prophet in Israel because he delivered the children of Israel from the bondage of slavery in Egypt. In Egypt and on the way from to the Promised Land, he portrayed Gods power in him by performing many miracles and interceding for the Israelites. In Deuteronomy chapter 18, it is illustrated that “God would raise a prophet and put His words into his mouth, the prophet would then speak them in the name of God” (Biblical Prophecy, P. 90). In Israel, prophets undertook huge variety of roles like warning, encouraging, teaching and interceding for the Israelites as explained below.
Praying and mediating for the Israelites
A prophet knows the mind of God and therefore he is capable of praying effectively. For example, Moses could talk to God directly and therefore he always prayed for the children of Israel whenever they were in need and God would hear him and answer his prayers....
