Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah, where Allah Allah, he was happy he is married. This is the NASA agenda coming to you from column handle are part of our mission. And our objective here at column is to provide practical, relevant, traditional beneficial Islamic knowledge to everyone everywhere, and to make the knowledge and the understanding of Islam as accessible as possible. And that's why we approach knowledge in so many different ways. Yes, we do have opportunities to seek knowledge that require a huge commitment, like studying at the seminary, or, you know, lesser commitments like coming to an

00:00:49--> 00:01:33

intensive, or going on one of the column travel tours and trips, a little less commitment than that maybe like taking a random Connect class. But then, for those folks who maybe aren't able to do all of that, right now, we want to make sure that everyone is able to benefit. And that's why we have things like the podcast, which anyone can listen to anywhere. And similarly, we wanted to have these little bit more interactive webinars, periodically, where people in sha Allah, especially particularly relevant to the calendar, and what's going on at this particular moment, people are able to log on and be able to get some understanding gets some beneficial knowledge directly from

00:01:33--> 00:01:51

the teachers and the instructors here at cologne. So Alhamdulillah we're very, very happy to be bringing you this webinar, and be able to create another outlet where we can dispense beneficial Islamic knowledge for free completely for the benefit of the community. So Alhamdulillah

00:01:52--> 00:02:17

this webinar is coming to you, during the end of the second half the end of the month of Rajab and the end of the month of Rajab marks a very powerful and beautiful occasion from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is the occasion that we know as a PSA will may launch the journey by night from Mecca to Jerusalem.

00:02:18--> 00:02:37

And then the ascension above the heavens. Now, you're going to be hearing from and learning from with the company a little bit later. And he will be talking about as much knowledge but also sharing a lot of reflections and thoughts. And so I definitely want to not,

00:02:39--> 00:03:30

you know, touch on anything that he's going to inshallah be elaborating upon. But very briefly, I wanted to mention a couple of things to create a general framework for what we're talking about here today. First and foremost, there's a very powerful and beautiful principle, a universal principle, a law that Allah subhanaw taala has put into place and that is, no good deed goes unrewarded. no difficulty and adversity goes on alleviated. Anytime someone faces any struggle, undoubtedly, undeniably, there's always relieved there's always relief, relief, reprieve and comfort that follows after it. Allah subhanaw taala states is so beautifully as only a lucky for in Nevada or city used

00:03:30--> 00:03:33

to run in nema ellerslie use run

00:03:34--> 00:04:23

that Allah subhanaw taala said with difficulty comes ease with difficulty is ease. And there are so many other places in the Parana Allah subhanaw taala talks about this you need to lock will become looser when you need to become a nurse. God wants easier facilitation for you. He does not want obstruction and hardship and difficulty for you. You can either lock well and you huffy. ferronickel. Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to lighten your load, Allah subhanaw taala does not want to overburden and Allah subhanaw taala does not want to overburden and inundate you with complications and difficulty. And so it's very, very important to remember that anytime we deal with

00:04:23--> 00:04:50

any type of difficulty, whether it be individually, familiarly, socially communally, globally, that there is always some type of relief and comfort from Allah subhanaw taala that is coming both in the life of the hereafter and in this world. So now talking about the life of the Prophet, somebody, some This is demonstrated for us. So it becomes something very real and very practical. And the way it's demonstrated is through the most difficult

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

part of the life of the prophets a lot he said, personally, the prophets a lot he said them within the span

00:05:00--> 00:05:15

of a few weeks, he suffered the loss of his beloved wife, Khadija radi Allahu taala. And who was his wife, 25 years, the mother of his children, the first one to believe in his message.

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

And his strongest supporter,

00:05:19--> 00:05:22

and a mother of all the believers,

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

and he lost her.

00:05:25--> 00:05:57

And within weeks of that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also suffered the death and the passing of his uncle of butanna. I will tell him, his uncle, who raised him from the age of eight and cared for him, like one of his own, was like a parent to him, and call him who advised and supported the profits a lot even through his young adulthood and into adulthood. And then finally, when the profits a lot of time was given his task and his mission, while I will call him did not believe he still supported him and defended him.

00:05:58--> 00:06:13

And the profits a lot isn't lost that person and personally for the profits a lot, he said, this was a very, very difficult moment is a very difficult period of life at the profits a lot he set up somewhat so that it is remembered, and

00:06:14--> 00:06:20

it is commented on as being on the horizon, the year of grief and sorrow.

00:06:22--> 00:06:24

Not only that, but there is even a third

00:06:25--> 00:06:27

difficulty that comes upon the prophets allottee.

00:06:28--> 00:06:49

And the third difficulty that comes upon the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is in the form of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm due to Makkah becoming so difficult than divisive. The prophets a lot, Ethan feels compelled to explore any opportunities outside of Mecca, to be able to propagate and spread the message of Islam

00:06:50--> 00:07:09

and the prophets a lot. So in doing so, he travels to the city of thought if and when he goes there he is met with rejection, and ridicule, and ultimately, persecution. They throw rocks at him, they stone him for a duration of three miles. And he bleeds profusely.

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

And he suffers such

00:07:14--> 00:07:51

a difficult and aggressive and violent response from these people. When all he did was go there to talk to them, and give them something beneficial for them. And then there's a fourth difficulty when he's coming back home that people have thought if leaked the information to the people of Morocco saying that he came here as a traitor to Mecca. So then the prophets Allah was not able to enter back into Makkah and he has to spend three days outside of Morocco waiting for that issue to be cleared up. Before he can reenter moko, difficulty upon difficulty upon difficulty upon difficulty.

00:07:52--> 00:07:57

It's a very very tragic moment from the life of the Prophet.

00:07:59--> 00:08:23

But in that moment, Allah subhanaw taala provides ease facilitation, comfort, relief, reprieve, peace and tranquility. by granting the prophets a lot of some of the greatest honor the greatest distinction that any human being has ever experienced has ever enjoyed. He takes him on the most miraculous journey of his life. And he said, I wouldn't be on arch.

00:08:25--> 00:08:29

So I wanted to create this framework, so that we can appreciate what we're talking about here.

00:08:30--> 00:08:43

The second thing is that this journey is separated into two parts and that's why it has two names. It's at all We manage the journey by night, from Mecca to Jerusalem,

00:08:44--> 00:09:09

and then the ascension above the heavens. inshallah, what I'm going to be talking to you about today, here is the portion of the journey of the prophets a lot he sent him where he travels from McKinsey drusen and then the experiences there at masinloc saw and then move to commodity in sha Allah will be sharing with you the portion of the journey in which he talks about the ascension above the heavens.

00:09:10--> 00:09:51

So, the first part of this journey is the profits a lot from traveling from Morocco to Machu laksa. Now that begins in Mecca. There are a couple of different variations one says that he went from the home of home ohana one says that he went from his own home. One says that he went from the Kaaba itself. The way that's generally understood is that the prophets a lot of them, particularly after the passing of Khadija for Fatima to the Allahu taala and the daughter of the prophets, a lot of them he would sometimes leave her with him honey at her home. So they had a little private area in the home of home honey that he was there earlier that night. Then he came home to his own home. And

00:09:51--> 00:09:58

from there the angel Gabriel Ali Salam came and took him to the garba where they laid him down. They split his chest and the cleanses heart

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

to prepare

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

For this miraculous journey, it is at that time that you really saw and presented an animal to the prophets allowed him called the buraq.

00:10:07--> 00:10:37

Which moves at the speed of light. It's a miraculous animal, a very remarkable creature. And this creature of the Brock given era Salaam says he is the transportation the right of the profits. So the profits a lot is inboards is Hana one, they depart from the garba from Makkah, and the profits a lot, Assam says, each step woodland as far as the eye could see. And I looked over to my right and sRGB was keeping up with me so fast.

00:10:38--> 00:10:46

He says that we just started traveling and then Djibouti Daddy, some stock the animal. And then he asked me to please descend from the animal and pray to the gods there.

00:10:48--> 00:10:56

The prophets, a lot of them said, I prayed there. And then somebody said to me said, Do you know where we just stopped? I said, I do not.

00:10:57--> 00:11:13

And he said that. I don't like Eva. were illegal Mahajan. We just stopped at a very blessed place, a beautiful place. And this is the place where the migration will occur to you. It was basically the city of Medina. And it was the inauguration

00:11:14--> 00:11:16

and kind of a commencement

00:11:17--> 00:11:18

of the city of Medina.

00:11:19--> 00:11:30

He said, then we proceeded. He stopped me out in another place. And he said, Pray here and I prayed there. He said, Do you know where this is? And I said, No. And he said, this is a place where metalli salaam sat under the tree muddy. And

00:11:31--> 00:11:51

when he escaped Fidel, and he came there and he was seeking refuge and he prayed to God, Allah, I am in need of whatever you provide to me. He traveled again and he said, You stopped him again. He said, Pray here said Do you know where we stopped? He said, No. And he said, this is where God spoke to musala a Sunnah where Allah spoke to Moses, January to the layman.

00:11:53--> 00:12:03

And then he said that we proceeded on forward, he stopped me at a place. He said, Pray here and I prayed. They said, you know where we prayed? And I said, No. And he said, this is the place where he saw the son was born, Bethlehem,

00:12:04--> 00:12:08

Bethlehem, he said, and then finally we arrived them as a duck saw.

00:12:09--> 00:12:12

And he said, When we arrived at Mercy duck saw,

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

he says at that time,

00:12:16--> 00:12:52

all the prophets throughout time were gathered there together, all gathered and commemorated, and their souls were gathered there together. And then the profits a lot of the time was asked to lead all of them in prayer. And the profits a lot of them lead every single profit seminary agency over 100,000 seminarians over 300,000 prophets of God and the prophets a lump sum was their email, demonstrating the status in the position of the prophets a lot of the time, I say that mursaleen emammal ambia as the leader of the Prophets, and the leader of all the messengers,

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

and after leading all the prophets in prayer,

00:12:58--> 00:13:21

at that time, the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, Djibouti Ali Salam escorted him and led him to the highest point in that Aqsa compound, where it is said to be around the area where the Dome of the Rock is constructed, constructed today, but to Sakura, let him there. And from there, the ascension took place.

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

Now, there's a couple of things that I wanted to talk about here.

00:13:27--> 00:13:40

First and foremost, this is another one of the great remarkable virtues along with the hundreds, if not 1000s, of other virtues of the Holy Land of Allah Marshall Aqsa puts in philosophy.

00:13:42--> 00:13:48

This is one of the greatest virtues of that place. That this is the place

00:13:49--> 00:13:54

where this remarkable experience a place where Allah subhanaw taala gathered all the profits

00:13:55--> 00:13:59

and had the profits allottee some physically come there and lead all of them in prayer.

00:14:00--> 00:14:21

And something else very beautiful reflection is that this is happening at such a difficult moment during the lifetime the profits a lot. And Luca witless pinata consoles him, he gathers them together with all of his brothers, all the prophets. And he hasn't lead them in prayer. reinforcing that what you're doing is remarkable. And what you're doing is important, and you need to keep doing it.

00:14:23--> 00:14:38

But there's also a very beautiful reflection that the place where Allah subhanaw taala provided this empowerment to the prophets a lot of a sudden was mahshid axon and mostly luxa that is regarded powered, is beloved messenger ceylonese.

00:14:39--> 00:14:48

It's a beautiful, beautiful, remarkable place. handle. I've had the experience to go and we take a group every year. And so hon Allah without fail.

00:14:49--> 00:15:00

Every time you go, you fall more deeply and more deeply in love with that place. You appreciate it more and more and more. It's just like you You know, people

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

Talk about and I've experienced at McCann, Medina you never tire. You never grow weary, you never grow bored. You never, you know, lose any type of love and admiration and all and inspiration of those places. Mustard oxide is no different than that. It is a beautiful, remarkable amazing, astounding place. May Allah subhana wa tada take us all there. And may Allah subhanaw taala free it and grant it and its people dignity and safety

00:15:38--> 00:15:47

so after this particular experience the ascension into the heavens took place l Maharaj. The ascension and inshallah mystic money we'll be talking to you more about that.

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

There are a couple of things that I wanted to mention.

00:15:51--> 00:15:56

Before I conclude my portion, number one is that

00:16:00--> 00:16:12

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the way and then on the way back as well. The prophets Allah The sun was miraculously shown by Allah subhana wa tada the rewards and the punishments of different people.

00:16:13--> 00:16:21

And it's almost like a projection of the life of the hereafter what will happen? What are the consequences of some of the good deeds and also the sins that people commit.

00:16:22--> 00:16:24

And there were some very, very

00:16:26--> 00:16:32

beautiful, and also some very scary things. very frankly speaking.

00:16:33--> 00:16:47

The profits a lot of a sudden was shown some people who they would plant a seed into the ground. And as soon as they would put the seed into the ground, it would immediately grow and come to fruition, and they would harvest it immediately. And that they were quickly being given

00:16:49--> 00:16:51

the fruits and the rewards of their labor.

00:16:52--> 00:17:15

And the profits, a lot of them asked Who are these people, Djibouti and Djibouti lollies have informed them that these are the people who would strive to propagate the religion of God, and use their time and their energy and their wealth and their property to spread Islam. This is how Allah subhanaw taala multiplies their reward. May Allah make us from amongst them.

00:17:17--> 00:17:20

Similarly, the prophets allottee some saw some very scary things.

00:17:21--> 00:17:28

For instance, one of the things that he saw was that there were some people that were being tortured, punished,

00:17:29--> 00:17:35

their tongues are being pulled out of their mouths and being cut off with iron, you know, scissors.

00:17:37--> 00:17:49

And this was happening to them and their profits a lot with anguish, which is so much concern. He said, Who are these people? Why is this happening to them LGBT

00:17:51--> 00:17:56

ngvd rallies around said these are the people who used to backbite, slander,

00:17:57--> 00:18:41

ridicule, Mark, humiliate other people. They were people who targeted the dignity and the honor of people with their tongues. And they were unrepentant, unrelenting, unrelenting. In doing so they kept on doing it, they didn't care about the consequences. They knew it was wrong, and they still did it. This is their punishment. May Allah protect us all. So these types of things, the profits a lot even saw, and he brought back for us, so that we can take that into consideration, learn from that and benefit from that. The second thing I wanted to share, the most ecomony will also touch on but just very quickly, because it's something that just always it's one of my favorite parts of the

00:18:41--> 00:18:53

story. When the prophets a lot of them came back and he was informing everyone, of course, Abou jehlen some of the problem. People don't troublemakers, they try to, you know, create a situation.

00:18:54--> 00:19:17

And they started trying to mock the profits, a lot of them and some of them say, Well, there are some people here who have been to Exxon to make them Noctis they know what it looks like. So describe it to us now the profits and what he said was there for a little bit of time in the night leading all the profits in prayer, he wasn't there to study the architecture. So he didn't remember so much of it where he could describe all of it.

00:19:18--> 00:19:23

But Allah subhanaw taala sent you rerelease around to the prophets, Allah de Sena

00:19:25--> 00:19:50

and gibreel Ali Salaam opened up his wing. And it's like bait and muck This was being projected onto his wing and he started pointing out specific things. And the prophets a lot of them started commenting in so much detail. There's a door here there's a window there, there's a crack here, there's a note here and people were blown away and astounded. How is he doing this? And of course Allah subhanaw taala miraculously created the means.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

And while the prophets a lot ism is describing every little detail, there's this here, there's that here, Abu Bakar the Allahu taala, who had never been there.

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

Started responding saying set up set up set up set up. correct correct. You speak the truth you speak the truth you speak the truth.

00:20:08--> 00:20:30

And the profits are large and finally commented biting antiseptic. You are the truth one and that's your work another Lonergan is title. Look at the faith and the commitment in the loyalty the belief of Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala it's a beautiful thing. May Allah be pleased with him, and May Allah subhanaw taala similarly gratis, that kind of faithfulness.

00:20:32--> 00:20:37

And then the last thing I wanted to comment on before I close and again, money we'll talk more about this.

00:20:38--> 00:20:47

But from this journey of our Mirage when the beautiful gifts the prophets a lot of sudden came back with was the gift of prayer, the gift of Salah

00:20:48--> 00:21:06

a salata Mirage, I mean, we all have difficulties, recently the Muslim community with the massacre in Mali, and then we also had the terrible shooting in the masjid in New Zealand, and the ongoing tragedies in so many parts of the world.

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

There's a lot of pain and suffering.

00:21:10--> 00:21:21

But we all have our own little mini Mirage opportunities. We make what do we face towards the Qibla we say Allahu Akbar. And then we talk to Allah

00:21:22--> 00:21:33

and no believe that it will bring peace and tranquility and comfort to your heart. It will ease your pain or remind you that Ally's with you because he lives with all of us,

00:22:36--> 00:22:46

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillah Allahu akbar wa salam ala Latino stafa also sanada cgt to studio Hartman and the

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

early Hill Ischia was harbor hill at about

00:22:52--> 00:22:59

the first 10 years of prophethood were very difficult for the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:23:00--> 00:23:07

there were so many tests and so many challenges that Allah subhanho wa Taala had placed before the Messenger of Allah

00:23:08--> 00:23:53

teaching us His followers, the lesson of life, which is that Allah subhanho wa Taala Sunnah is his method is that he will test those who he loves the most, pushing them to get closer to him. The believer doesn't shy away from a challenge in life. Rather, the believer uses it as an opportunity. Like Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did, to raise his hands and make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala, to connect with Allah, to fall into prostration to cry in front of Allah. And it was during this phase in the prophets live for he went through so much over this very long 10 year period.

00:23:54--> 00:24:32

That it was at the end of the 10th year, early 11th year, that Allah subhanho wa Taala now honored the prophets that allamani was set him with a beautiful miraculous journey of Islam and marriage. Therefore, we learn a second thing that with every difficulty comes ease. Every time Allah subhana wa tada tests you, Allah subhana wa tada will also reward you. And that reward will be so great, it'll be so beautiful, it will be so special. Then even you won't expect and believe that this is the result of that sacrifice that you went through in your life.

00:24:34--> 00:24:49

I sort of lost that Allahu alayhi wasallam on this night of Israelite in Mirage was blessed with two very separate very individual unique blessings. The first blessing that he was given was the journey of his setup, which was a

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

horizontal journey. may be a long one it was set on went from Mecca mahkamah to Palestine and goods. It was a horizontal journey.

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

Then the second blessing that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him was the journey of marriage. And this is the vertical journey, where a sort of Lhasa Allahu alayhi wa sallam went from the world into ascension, he began to ascend into the heavens.

00:25:14--> 00:25:53

Now, as you may know, that during the part of the surah, where the prophets of Allah Hammadi was sent and went from Mecca mahkamah to eliquids, Palestine, he was on the buraq. The scholars they say, however, one Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began the essential essential part. The buraq was left behind and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam covered this part of his trip on a staircase and it was a beautiful staircase sent from Paradise that allowed the process of law while he was sitting to climb into the heavens. his companion on this journey was his teacher and beloved. Satan algebra his Salaam.

00:25:54--> 00:26:12

The narrations tell us that urbinati salam was leading the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on this journey, and they were ascending together until they arrived at the heavens and the gates of Jenna. When they came to the first gate gibreel Ali Salaam knocked on the door, seeking permission to enter

00:26:14--> 00:26:15

from the other side.

00:26:16--> 00:26:29

They were asked Who is it to be lolly Salaam said it is gibreel they asked who is with you? GB lolly Sam said Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Therefore the gates of Jennifer opened up. And the

00:26:30--> 00:27:10

angel standing at those doors began to welcome the Prophet along while he was sitting because of how great of a day it was. That'll sort of last it Allahu Allah He was sort of arrived in came walked into the agenda that they were standing at. Now sort of loss of a lot while he was set up one by one visited different prophets that were at each of these stations at each of these paradises waiting to greet and meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the scholars engaged in a very interesting discussion where they say that Allah subhanahu wa tada very strategically kept these prophets in place. Because each of them had something to offer to the profits of the long one. It was a very

00:27:10--> 00:27:15

special message. A very important advice for us would have lost a lot of money.

00:27:17--> 00:27:32

Now, what was this advice? What was the wisdom behind the prophets he met where he met them? Why did he meet them in the sequence? There is some discussion in the books of Hadith on these wisdoms, however, just keep in mind that nothing is substantiated through authentic sources,

00:27:33--> 00:27:47

verses of the Quran or hadith of Rasulullah. These are speculations and thoughts that scholars have given after reflecting over this. So the first heaven, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he met, saved in other money salam,

00:27:48--> 00:28:20

why did he meet other money so now? Allah subhanho wa Taala is taking the Prophet along while he was sitting back to the beginning of mankind. This is where it all started. And this is where you need to bring people back at the Mali slums mess message was a simple one, la la la, Muhammad Rasulullah. mankind from that point, has gone far away from this teaching of other malissa and O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you need to bring people back to the message to the teaching of their father. So you know.

00:28:22--> 00:28:24

The second wisdom some scholars have proposed

00:28:25--> 00:28:40

of the prophets that along while he was sort of meeting other mothers Salaam in the first heaven of Paradise, was an indication of the mother's salaams journey started from Jenna. Due to a mistake he was taken out of Jenna, but yet he came back and now the profits of last Sunday's meeting agenda.

00:28:44--> 00:29:01

Therefore, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being told that your your journey started in Mecca. Very soon you will have to leave Mecca and go to Medina. Yet remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala will always bring you back to where your journey started. And then fast forward eight, nine years

00:29:02--> 00:29:31

after migration, sort of lost a lot while he was cinemas returning back to mocha mocha Rama as a conquer, Allah azzawajal grants him the victory over Mocambo carnamah Fatoumata now from there a su de la sala Hollywood ascends to the second heaven, and there he meets two prophets. These two prophets were cousins of one another they live together, they had grown up together, who were these two prophets satana Isa Elise and Seaton a Harun Ali. So now

00:29:33--> 00:29:38

let's say that I decided that I'm in the process of a long while he was sort of getting an opportunity

00:29:39--> 00:29:49

to see where his generation went wrong. He delivered to them a message of tawheed yet they exaggerated and they now were in a pool of shuriken. Cofer

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

sort of lasted a long while it was cinemas learning how to guide his oma and keep them away from making such mistakes. Similarly,

00:30:00--> 00:30:26

Sally Saddam's followers were the Christians. And when he said a lot while he was still on would arrive in Madina, munawwara and after Islam would begin to spread, Muslims would interact with Christians. Therefore I sort of lost that a lot. It sort of is speaking with the Saudis that I'm becoming very familiar talking with him benefiting from his advice, taking his counsel from their Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continue to ascend. And at the third heaven,

00:30:27--> 00:30:28

He reached

00:30:30--> 00:30:34

the meeting with Satan or Yusuf Ali Hassan

00:30:35--> 00:30:45

Yusuf Ali Salaam story was very interesting because it has story there was a lesson for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his own people were the ones who turned against him.

00:30:46--> 00:31:00

But at the end of the story, Allah subhana wa tada tells us that the people that turn against Yusuf Ali Salaam, were the very same people he forgave and he made to offer. He never allowed hatred to come into his heart. For those who did wrong to him.

00:31:01--> 00:31:29

Here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being reminded that the people of MK are doing wrong to you. These are your family members, these are your close relatives. You must not hate them for the wrongs they are doing to you. Learn to love them, learn to appreciate them, understand that they are being diluted by shaytaan. Ultimately, tomorrow, you may be standing in a place where they may come to you asking for forgiveness, and you may want to forgive them. But if you let the hatred

00:31:30--> 00:31:40

if you allow this hatred to take its roots in your heart tomorrow, you won't be able to forgive them. Go and look at the story of so you did not use a body setup. That's exactly what happened.

00:31:41--> 00:32:18

mocha mocha was conquered. These leaders of Quraysh were brought in front of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And when they were reminded of their crimes and the wrong they did a sort of loss and a lot of money was set them didn't tell them that he was going to torture them or or he would banish them till the end of times Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, I will say to you what Yusuf Ali Salaam said to his brothers led to three body communium and to Tanaka. Each and every one of you are set free. I do not hold you accountable for the wrong that you did. That was gone that was passed. Let's look past it. Let's move forward. Yes, good, Allahu. Allah forgive you. Well,

00:32:18--> 00:32:22

who are hamura mean? And He is the Most Merciful.

00:32:23--> 00:32:29

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues his journey. He arrives at the fourth heaven, and there he meets the Saudis.

00:32:30--> 00:32:59

And then he continues on into the journey. And he meets Satan or Musashi said I'm sorry, how do not a Salaam first and then he continues on his journey. And he meets at Namu Sati Salaam. He continues in his journey. He reaches seventh heaven. And there he meets his Rahim Ali Salaam Ibrahim Ali Salam is leaning against a Kaaba structure that is in the heavens. And this Kaaba structure is based on a Namu it's the Kaaba, above the Kaaba of this world in the heavens that the angels doodle off of.

00:33:05--> 00:33:08

There, he meets Ibrahim alayhis salam, and there's a very interesting, beautiful,

00:33:09--> 00:33:31

intimate conversation that occurs between the between the two. And it's as if all of these prophets are encouraging him, motivating him, giving him him on hope, giving them courage, that go back to your people and be strong. Don't give up. 10 years of sacrifice have passed by there may be another 13 years ahead of you. You just can't give up on your people.

00:33:32--> 00:33:44

And it was sort of lost a lot while he was cinemas absorbing this all he's absorbing it all. The journey continues on until at one point I sort of lost it a long while he was seven steps ahead of God Larissa.

00:33:45--> 00:34:17

Now throughout this entire journey to beat on Islam was in front, but also the loss of a lot of money was said it was it was behind. This was the first time that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went ahead, and now he was ahead of up Lottie, Sarah was sort of lost that allowed it sort of asked why did he stop? Do you realize that I'm sad? Yeah, I was sort of law. No creation has ever passed this limit. You're on your own. So the loss of a loved one it was sort of continued on and he walked forward and walked forward and walked forward. Until he came very close to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:34:18--> 00:34:59

How close was he to Allah? Did Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speak with Allah subhanho wa Taala did the Messenger of Allah see Allah during that journey of marriage? There is a difference of opinion amongst the scholars. One group of scholars hold the position that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not see a law on the night of marriage. He did not see a law on the night of marriage. The second group of scholars hold the position that are pseudo laws that allow it was that him did si Allah subhanahu wa tada on the night of marriage. Now before you decide to jump in this debate and and cast an opinion of your own this know that this difference of opinion trade

00:35:00--> 00:35:37

back all the way to the time, we would have sort of lost a lot while he was sort of, we're on one side you had a bus with your loved one who was of the position that was sort of lost a lot while he was sitting did see a lot on the night of marriage. And on the other hand, you had eyeshadow lohana, who was adamant and she was fixed that Rasulullah sallallahu it was to them did not see a lot on the night of marriage. So this is an old debate and one that is it's it predates our modern times. And if you choose to give side to one of these two opinions, because after reading the proofs, you feel that one is more correct than the other. Just be respectful to the other side, knowing that the

00:35:37--> 00:35:44

other side was an opinion held by companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:35:46--> 00:36:00

under the defeat of the ayat of Surah nejen Allah subhanahu wa tada actually in the verses himself Allah subhanho wa Taala says for Ghana cavaco sany Oh Adana from Medina for the dela for Ghana Cabo senior Adana.

00:36:02--> 00:36:17

He came close to Allah or he came close in came even closer and he was only at the distance of two bows, you know, a bow and arrow you have two bows if they were lied and lied down on the ground in front of one another, as the distance between

00:36:19--> 00:36:48

in combination of both bows was the distance that was sort of lost and a lot of money with cinema standing. Now, one group of scholars they say that this distance, this closeness, this proximity that allies referring to the proximity of two bows, was a little pseudo law civil law when it was said, I'm standing in front of Cedric jabril Elisa, while the others say no, this is referring to the time sort of lasted a long while it was cinema standing in front of his creator, his master his Allah. Now what happened

00:36:50--> 00:36:56

when a suitor lasted a long while it was to them was so close to Allah, did they speak? Did they not speak? What did they talk about?

00:36:58--> 00:36:59

There's nothing

00:37:00--> 00:37:33

authentically reported in terms of what exactly they talked about some narrations tell us and these are authentic narrations that tell us that was sort of lasted a long while he was sort of was given his five solar, he was given the closing versus sort of Bukhara so these are things that are mentioned that he was granted these special gifts. However, with that said, that what when I say that nothing is authentically reported. I'm making reference to this commonly quoted incident that they say that when a sort of lasted a long while he was stood in front of a law. He said adhere to the law. He was sort of adultery, but Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Assalamu alayka you have to be

00:37:33--> 00:37:53

you know, to LA vaca to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded back by saying, a ceremony now what I realized while he and the angel said shadow Allah, Allah Allah Allah, I shouldn't know Muhammad Abu al Sulu. This statement is not an authentic narration and most likely fabricated, wrongfully attributed to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:37:55--> 00:38:35

however, was sort of lost that alone while he was sort of was given the gift of saw. And this is a great indication for all of us. That Yes, we may have difficult times in our life, we may have our challenges that may prolong over the years, never give up hope and Allah. We may not go on Mirage to be dallisa may not come to receive us from our home and take us on the journey of Islam and then take us on the journey of marriage. That may not happen. However. However, if you wish to go in front of a lot and stand in front of Allah, for a believer, assata Mahajan, woman, a solid terminological movement, stand in front of a law, start your salon go into such the and you're

00:38:35--> 00:38:51

already on your marriage. You've already been blessed resort to Salah in your difficult times. feel that connection, that relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's the summary of Islamic marriage. So the last that allowed Islam was given all of these honors.

00:38:52--> 00:39:00

Because this was the night that Salah would be conferred upon. This was the night that Salah would become a part of the fabric of this religion.

00:39:02--> 00:39:14

When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned back from his journey of his rotten Mirage, the narration mentions that when he came back to the house, when he returned back to the home that he left off from the water was still flowing in the drain.

00:39:15--> 00:39:47

What that means is, this entire journey took place within a few seconds. The door handle that was shaking, was still shaking the profit when it was moving. When it came back. It was moving. The entire journey occurred in a few moments. And this is very special. This is a miracle in and of itself. The next morning when I sort of lost a lot of money was sent and woke up. He came to the people of MCI and he shared this beautiful story with them. This beautiful occurrence, the journey of isela and Matt dodge.

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

The sort of I could have chosen to keep it a secret because he had to have known that if he told people the story, they would call them Cuckoo. They would call them crazy. But the prophet of Allah any prophet of Allah can never hide the message.

00:40:00--> 00:40:36

They can never hide any revelation. So sort of lost that a lot while he was that I'm confident that Allah would protect him, protect him take care of him. He came and told the people that mcca they use this as an opportunity to mock him and make fun of him. They sort of joking ridiculing him, you know, making all sorts of fun out of fun out of him. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't see anything. One of them decided that it would be comical if they went to a worker and told him what the Prophet is saying that he went from muck all the way of goods in a matter of a few seconds and came back haha How is that even possible? When they came and told Abu Bakr Siddiq Guardiola one

00:40:36--> 00:41:13

he said that if the Prophet Mohammed is saying this, then it's true and I believe in it. This shows us how much of a worker syndicate the last one really trusted the Prophet. The whole world was on one side. What they were claiming against the Prophet was a good claim meaning we mean the prophets claim that he went on and said on Raj is very clearly illogical. It doesn't make sense. It's irrational. But Abu Bakr, cinco de la one rational or irrational, logical OR illogical, he chose to be by the side of hospital law. And that's why he was abubaker. He said that if the Prophet said this, then I believe it then it's truthful. If anyone else said it, then I'm not sure but if he said

00:41:13--> 00:41:39

it, then I have no dominance at all. And that was a point where I sort of lost it. Allahu alayhi wa sallam gave him the title, acidic, the truthful one. And that peddle stuck with him, because he believed in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he testified on behalf of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he confirmed this, this, this journey of the Prophet said a lot of money was set them at a time where others were skeptical, and while others were mocking Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:41:40--> 00:42:12

the people of Makkah asked the prophets that a lot of money was sent in for some proof that this journey occurred. So the loss of Allah holiday was sort of gave them some signs. They asked him how many doors and windows are there and outputs. I mean, who, who would know that if you know how many doors and windows there are of a machine that you've only visited once. And while you were there, you were doing something very important leading the profits of a lion prayer. And yet you still know the number of windows and doors there's something wrong with you. But Allah subhanho wa Taala in order to establish the hajah and proof on behalf of the Prophet, he gave a hologram in front of the

00:42:12--> 00:42:26

Prophet and the Prophet, the loss of them counted the doors and windows and answered them back. He then told them that he saw a caravan that was returning to Medina, and they would arrive in so many days based off the estimate his estimation and where they were when he passed by them.

00:42:27--> 00:42:48

The narration mentioned that when that day arrives, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had said that they would return back to Medina, they hadn't returned. The son was about to set a sort of loss of the law while he was sort of mid law. And according to a narration, it has some weakness in it, but it is quoted in the books of Syrah that when the suta lasted a long while it was sort of made out of a lot.

00:42:49--> 00:43:27

The miracle of hubs of champagne occurred, where Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded the sun to stop in its place, those people returned, and then the sun had set. And this is the summary of the journey of Islam and marriage. We pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us all strength in our moments of difficulty, and that Allah subhana wa allows us to be strong as well, that we turned to him when we are challenged when we feel sad when we feel lonely. Go into your search, cry out to Allah make to Allah subhanho wa Taala and remember, with every difficulty comes ease with every difficulty comes ease. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was worried that its people wouldn't

00:43:27--> 00:43:56

accept Islam. After the journey of marriage, Allah subhanho wa Taala opened up doors for him. And the people of the unsired met the Prophet of Allah. They accepted Islam they invited their people with every difficulty they will be ease. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala accepts graduates the ability to reflect Allah subhanahu wa tada gives us our moments of spiritual Ascension in this dunya also allowed Allah Allah sera Mohamad Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi tada barakato
