the start when we arrived Julissa will be urge or two things. To words one means extra means to take somebody by night. Sarah means to travel by night Astra means to take someone by night and so you sell Sr, El Mirage ms to go up the ascension, the night journey and the ascension to going up. So the prophets of Allah Allah, I think it was Sam's journey.
A sloth when the Raj is one of the miracles the margins are one of them or desert, that Allah subhanaw taala bless the prophets of Allah, Allah, Allah has raised his status with it. And it was to make to give the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam a
to strengthen him in a very difficult time, because it happened in a very different difficult time in the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. It was after the death of his beloved uncle Abu Talib, he will who used to protect him, and also his wife Khadija, or the Levana, who also used to of course, comfort the prophets of Allah, Allah, Allah He was set up. And it was also after a very, very painful incident. And that painful incident also another painful incident was the the trip to thrive and how the disbelievers of five minutes Atif rejected the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so when did it happen? It happened around the 10th year.
We know that it's after the 10th year of the hinder of the Prophet so before I mean, the 10th year after Revelation, the 10th year after Allah Subhana Allah sent revelation to the prophets of Allah alayhi wa sallam, and we know that they saw Raj Of course, it's not just in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it is also very clearly confirmed in the Quran in and in which Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about it in a surah by the name and this also sort of,
in which Allah subhanho wa Taala starts with Subhanallah the SRB Abdi Leila Amina al Masjid Al haram, in the Masjid Al Aqsa, the Vairocana Helena the new linaria whom in Isaiah Tina in know who has severe adversity, so handle ready Glory be to he who took his servant by night
from a Masjid Al haram to administer the laksa a lady Vairocana hola in which Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed their sanctuary and that which is that which was which is around it, the Nuria who made it so that we can show him our signs in the who who are semi overseer, indeed Allah subhanaw taala Indeed he is our hearing, our knowing and so, the Israa Of course,
in the in, in the in the surah Allah subhanho wa Taala
or in Surah najem Allah subhanho wa Taala also mentions some of the benefits of it in which Allah subhana wa have access well epidural hours let an okra indeed in the center Siddharth in winter, and Allah Subhana Allah in these verses, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions of you know,
even more about the more more specifics about the
about the the Assad Neeraj and the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala Well, whoa Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the also Elohim going up to the heavens until the air until cinders elementa into the the ad the low tree and Allah subhanaw taala mentioned specifically.
Then Allah subhanaw taala mentioned Lakota I mean it rugby and I added Robbie Hill Cobra and he did indeed he did see
a major sign
from Allah subhanho wa Taala from his Lord. And so there is nothing in the Sierra
before the hijra, that is spoken about more than this.
That we don't have any Hadith and verses in the Quran or Hadith, in which they are specific details before the header of the prophets of Allah if some of any incident more than 100 more than the, the is in charge of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And
there are when you can when you
compile the different narrations inside Buhari for example, there are over 2020 Hadith Hadith and different narrations from both six companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And inside Muslim, there's a similar number about, you know, about seven companions and 18 a hadith, specifically mentioning about this.
And so this is an event that was mentioned a lot in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so,
we let's go through some of the things that happened in this event and in the SR with Mirage, and, and why do I did so. So the first first major event in this round garage was the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was having his chest open, his chest was opened, and there was one other time in which his chest was opened anybody know when it was
when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in Merseyside and only when he was with Halima s idea, and that this was when he was a boy, when his heart was also washed with zamzam. And a black cloth was taken out. And this was during the time in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very, very young, in the desert there so that was the first time the second time was doing the slot with me right right before it
after a sharp prayer
Gibreel Alehissalaam he comes down the rail, he comes down, and then he opens up the
the roof of the Prophet satellite, you might say, how do you open up the roof?
Because the roofs before they used to have palm fibers. So you know, you can assistant leaves, palm leaves and palm fibers. And so he opened it up, and he came down to house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and was shot Cassandra when he opened his chest. So the Prophet sallallahu says chest is literally open. We're not talking about something allegorical, something that this is something the physical that happened. And that's why the, the Companions amongst them, and so nomadic are the line who still saw the remnants of the stitching, the remnants of the stitching, you know, when the person has surgery, they have remnants of it. So you might say, Well, how could he
survive such a thing? Like how could his heart be taken out, and he still survived, like SubhanAllah. Nowadays, humans, we ourselves can take hearts and we have heart transplants, we take somebody's heart, and they survive, we take another person's heart, who maybe passed away just recently, and we take that heart and because this person's heart is diseased, or something wrong with it, then we switch those hearts and they are alive, and they have some of them live for many years. And if humans can do that, and of course, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah can do all things and the angels are given capabilities, that Allah Subhana Allah commands them, whatever Allah commands
them to do. Allah subhanho wa Taala also gives them the ability and the capability to do and fulfill the commandments of Allah subhanho wa taala. So the first thing they did was they opened up his chests, and then they watched it again was zamzam and, and then a
container. Full container made of gold, there was Fuller, Heckman, Ema. This was full of knowledge of wisdom and faith, philosophy. So Rene was poured into his heart. How does this happen? What does Hikmah look like? What is the man What does faith look like? Allah Subhana Allah knows best what it looks like. We know that this happened and this came to us from a hadith that are authentic and Sahih Bukhari sahih. Muslim. And so how Allah subhanho wa Taala knows mess, because there are some things that we hear about, and unless we really see it, we really can't, you know, we really can't describe it with the exception of that which was described to us. So that which is described to us
it was full of Hikmah and faith, why because in times of difficulties, in times of hardship, a person needs to have strength to strengthen their Eman and to also of course, wisdom was something that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives to whomever he wills and then
of course, he
was the after they cleaned it up and they they sold it back. That's when the that's when Bora
Bora is an animal. Bora is a white animal, and it's an America or the law one he said. He said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he said,
I was given Lotito people were we were up. I was given a burrata and what is it? Buraq and he said, who adapted to dab? It is a writing animal that's Ambien. Topel, Hema we're doing in Babel. So there's a description of the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam was that it was bigger, it was larger than the camel, larger than the a donkey, and smaller than the meal, right. And so this was the animal that he rode on, and yellow half euro in them into hypertrophy. And every time he takes a step, he's so fast that one step, he goes the distance that other the eye can see, as far as I can see, one step is that much. And so this is of course, this is something that you know, that sort of
there are different other narrations I mentioned that the aura is the animal that used you would come and take the prophets and messengers, it's sort of like, you know, the President of the United States has Air Force One. You know, each president comes they ride the same plane, that's Air Force One, the next president has Air Force One, the previous US Air Force One. So the means of community of traveling of the prophets and messengers, when Allah subhanho wa Taala gives them the means is Bora. And so it's like the air for Air Force One,
the prophets and messengers of Allah. And so he said for okay, too, and so I wrote it, for Sarabi had it to bite him after this. And he, it took me Barak took me until it brought me to vital madness until it brought me to Jerusalem, for about a dab will help me to help you help me to feel MBA. So I tied the Barack
at the exact same place, that the other prophets tied it also. So anytime so because this is where this is the land of Jerusalem is the line of prophets and messengers. And so this is this is why some of the scholars have mentioned that all the other animals or the other prophets and messengers were also given Buraq, the same one of they needed to go somewhere and when ALLAH SubhanA, Allah
sent them if there was an there's any incident or cases and so far that Allah knows best. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best for my husband for solitude, he Hirakata in so he entered Betamax, this, this is an MSG that.
And then I prayed, he said, I prayed to
some couraged and then I left. So he went, then I went out for a tiny deal. And then the reason came to me the inner in hub, he came to me and he brought a container of
wine, hammered as wine, where he now I'm in Lebanon, and he brought a container of milk
to lemon and so but I chose milk, I chose milk for quality real a certain fitrah and so degrees and you have chosen the fitrah. Like you have chosen the fitrah that which is natural. And you might say well, of course, if somebody is given wine or milk, naturally you will choose milk because wine is haram right? But remember, this was during the 10th year of the hijra, I mean they tell you after revelation, this is before the Hendra wine and alcohol. Wine is was made haram in Medina. And so in Mecca, it wasn't haram yet, if someone were to drink wine, it would not be considered how it was still permissible. So to give him that option is to give him something that's permissible. But even
then, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam chose the chose milk and he really said you indeed you chose the fitrah some odd and then after that, I was I went up raised up I was I was a sent I was sent as ended which means how did he go up?
First of all, most people think that he wrote Baroque all the way up. Now here he tried Baroque, the only time that he wrote Baroque was from Mecca to Brighton madness, because if you were to travel on your own, would you be able to make it on time? And a few hours or a few minutes? No. So this is faster than faster than even airplanes, right? Because, and this is one step and you can you go as far as your eye can see, that means that's very, very quick, right? That's like, you know, almost, I mean, probably faster than the fighter jets that are available nowadays. Because a fighter jet, you hear it right here. And next thing you know, it's already over there. Right? So it's very,
extremely, extremely fast. That Allah subhanaw taala. allowed the sent sent to the messenger of a loss of life, so for him to write to brighten them up this and, and
in another narration that clarifies even more, that the prophets of Allah is and prayed. In there, he prayed.
and prayed and he led all the prophets and messengers, with Adam and all the prophets and messengers that came after after him. How did they come? Like where are they on? They are when they are already Why did Allah subhanho wa Taala men then Allah subhana wa Tada. Bring them all back to life. And how did this happen? The first thing we have to realize is this was actually a real trip. It wasn't something that was in somebody's mind. So how did they bring out their loss of Hannah, bring them back? Allah subhanho wa Taala can do that. Even if somebody passes away, another person, Allah Subhana Allah can can make it happen, can make all the Prophets and Messengers gather. And so he led
them in prayer. So it's an indication of what is indication that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
when he led them in prayer, and he was the Imam, that he is the leader of all the prophets and messengers of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And so the Mirage itself.
After that he was he ascended, how did he ascend? Allah knows best? You know, he said,
he would, you know, some of us, we might think, Well, how do you do it? You know, ALLAH SubhanA, Allah can do it for us. We it's easy, you know, like nowadays, when you go up, when you go up one level, how do you go up, you ride, sometimes an elevator, you get into an elevator and you go up.
And that's like, that's something that we have invented. Allah Subhan, Allah, Allah can give the message of a loss of Allah. And he said something that, something even better than that. And that's why if the details are not mentioned, like how did you happen, how give us the details, then it's really not important. Because that's not where the lesson is. That's not where the lesson is. And so that's why sometimes there's information that we get, if it's not told to us, that means we don't really focus on that. Because the more the important aspect is to focus on that which benefits you that helps you to in this life or the hereafter, if you knew what that elevator looked like was that
whatever the path was on the road, that we hit that brought him up, how or he just flew up, or whatever it is, how does that benefit?
If you don't, or you don't know, it doesn't benefit you anything. It's just, you know, and that's why when you read the, when you read the Bible, there's a lot of details that people made up.
Right, because people are asking, and so that's why, when it's mixed up with like the words of people,
then sometimes there's a lot of there are a lot of things that are first and foremost, false, and also that are not beneficial. And that's the Quran, this is the beauty of the Quran, whatever is in it, is whatever is mentioned, and it's important that we need to reflect upon it, it's not mentioned, if it's not the details are not mentioned, and that's okay, you don't have to worry about it. You don't have to worry about if Allah subhanaw taala did not mention the names of brother uses the names of the use of brother proper use of AlHassan brother, then it's not important to know their name, it's important to know the lesson. Now we can extract from, from the details that are
mentioned that concerns that help help us to reflect on the lessons. So the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when goes up and every single time he's asked,
you know, Gibreel, seeks permission, seeks permission. And he says to him, and the guardian of each each level of the heavens says he was with human Mac, and he would say Mohammed, and then he said, you know, welcome
This isn't that we have not been ordered to open to allow through, except for him. And another narration has been set for. And the real estate, yes. Then yes, he was the only one that was that we were allowed to open the gates for the gates to those to the heavens. And so, of course, the lower Heaven is called What what's the lowest? Anybody know what the lowest is called?
What do we call a sama? Dunya. Very good. Male. I appreciate knowledge. So I said it's called a somatic dunya. This is the level of the dunya. The lower dunya is the lower right. So the savannah dunya. This when he went up, and it was opened, this is where he met.
He met the money he said, he met Adam Alayhis Salam and everything everyone of course is no welcomes the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam welcomes the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he goes to the second and then the second. The second level, he meets Prophet Isa and Prophet Yeah. Prophet Isa and Prophet Yeah. How Properties and Property Yeah, hair related?
Anybody, their cousins very good, Mashallah. Their cousins, their cousins. Most of them are prophets. Prophet. Yeah. And then Prophet, Isa, the cousins. And so the cousins are in the same level, primary Salah he served properly, yeah, as in the same level. And then he goes up to the third level. And then the third level he meets Prophet Yusuf alayhi salam, and he says, I saw him and I saw that he had been given half a beauty.
Like half a beauty. That's, that's how handsome
Prophet Yusuf was. Then he said, they went up to the fourth. And it was there that I saw Idris, Prophet Idris. And then he went up to the fifth. And after the fifth, when the narrations mentions that he made profit, how to profit how, and after that, he went to the six, who do you think's after profit had one prophet Musa la Santa, they actually their brothers, but they're in different levels, then the cousins are also in different levels, and the same levels. And then he went to
the seventh level. And then the seventh level, he meets I will EMEA This is the father of the prophets and messengers who is that
Prophet Abraham and he said, there was no one who looked like the Prophet sallallahu Ellingsen more than profitable.
So Prophet Ibrahim is the most resembling of the Messenger of Allah, the lives of all the prophets, and messengers of Allah subhanho wa taala. And, and you know what he was, what was he doing?
On because he's very high up than the son of seventh heaven. And how many levels is that are the levels of the heavens in the sky?
Sebastian, my word. Right. And so he that's way up there. Right. And so what's up there? He said, I saw him was standing in the elevator in Malmo, he was like, leaning on. He was reclining. Reclining on Brighton l'amour. But more is directly above the cab, just like it is there that 70,000 Angels into every single day, and they never come up. It's a huge place. It's, but he's reclaiming Prophet, Ibrahim alayhi salam is reclining there. And then of course, he goes all the way to Siddhartha the month, it was there that even Gibreel who's accompanying him the whole time, he says, This is my place. After this, I can go further. I can't go any further. And it was there that Allah subhanaw
taala made Allah subhanaw taala
gave the they gave the OMA 50 prayers 50 prayers like SubhanAllah 50 prayers. Imagine if you had to pray 50 times a day. How much time would you have to do anything else?
If we were to pray 50 prayers every single day. Now, right now we have five daily prayers. It's hard. It's difficult, really, right. Imagine 50 prayers in 24 hours. How many prayers are you going to pray in a day?
You have you can't do anything. You can only find enough time to barely sleep, eat and pray. And there's no hardly any other time to do anything else. All right. So what would you
Life be your life would be spent entirely in the worship of Allah. Like literally if worship prayer, the worship of Allah, if He were to with a 60 prayers, and you know what, when 50 prayers were made obligatory
the process a lot and have some complaint do and say he just came back home did praise Allah, may Allah have mercy upon Prophet Musa he came back. And then he met he met, of course the prophets and messengers are asking, you know what happened? You know, this is a very honor great honor that the prophets of messengers of Allah, the other prophets and messengers of Allah, and no one else is able to, to receive such a noble you know, we might think that prayer is a burden, but it's not it's a gift.
It's such a great gift that Allah didn't just send it to us.
He didn't just send it to us.
He ordered the prophets of Allah Allah to personally accept the gift of prayer. Just like you know, if someone were to like, wanted to give you a gift, and they wanted to give it to you, but for the, you know themselves, directly, instead of sending it to you through the mail or giving it through to you to somebody else know, the prayer, the five daily prayers are so important that Allah subhanho wa Taala invited the Messenger of Allah says Allah Allah has himself. And so you might think about, just think about that. That's how important prayer is in the Muslims life. And so Prophet Musa heard
of, you know, from the Messenger of Allah, what had happened there, what was made obligatory, he says, I've been given 50 prayer, and a day and a night. And so probably Mossad Hasani says, no, no, go back to your people. Like I have been given, you know, my struggle of my people, we were only given how many prayers they were given.
Then the morning and night prayer,
and they still struggled with it.
The morning prayer and the nitrates it and he said, I couldn't even get my people to like, TV, you know, to be consistent with it. Like you can't have the 50 prayers. No, you gotta go back. You have to go back and ask Allah Subhana Allah, that he decreases the amount to give it to, to give it a little bit more to give, to make it more easy. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the messenger of Allah sort of went back, you know, after Prophet Musa told him to go back, and then he goes back, and every single time Allah subhana, Allah decreases it by 510. And then he comes back again. Prophet Musa, Prophet Musa, there's no more more, you can't do it, you know, many people
can't do it. I know my people had a hard time you with, you know the amount of prayers that I was given. And so he sends him back. And every single time
the same thing happens, until there's five more left only five daily prayers. And then he comes to Prophet Musa and Prophet Musa says, No norovirus too much, go back and tell him to decrease the amount. And the messenger of Allah said, I returned so many times I'm embarrassed. And like, I'm already embarrassed, I can't go, I can't go anymore. And because he says, you know, rugby, had the study, too. I asked him so many times, I'm, I'm, I'm embarrassed, I can't ask him anymore. And then
call, okay. A caller, there was a caller. And
the caller announced and said this is this is, it was announced that this is obligatory has been made obligatory, even though it's 50 prayers, even if even if even if it's 50 prayers, your Lord has given you the reward of even though it's only five, you get the reward of 50. And that's why it's very, very important for us. When we pray, you have to understand, to try to be happy to have for sure. And not to miss any prayers whatsoever. Why? Because every prayer is worth how much
it's worth 10 prayers. It's like you're praying 10 times at one time. And that's why you shouldn't miss and then when you pray, try to pray and be focused and try to pray in the masjid because you're multiplying it by 10 and it's a lot of there's a lot of reward. The reward is very, very great.
And another narration from Anis, Abdul Malik, who took it from a visa after he mentioned, you know, the heavens, the different levels of the heavens. And
he said, and then I was I went up to the point where
I probably heard depends. And then after that, of course, the meeting, he was so close. That was where, where, where's that? What is that? What's the pin that's being that's writing.
He heard the writing of the 10 writing,
and also the records, the records are being kept. Right. And so Allah subhana wa tan has a pen that writes, he has a pen that writes. And of course, there's different levels of writing. But of course, the angels also write but then there's also the writing and allowing for that's already written before everything even was created everything that happens. And then of course, there's different levels of writing, of record keeping, because there's the angels. And then there's the daily, you know, their daily records, and then the yearly records that are written. And so everything is recorded, no matter what is what we do. And so Subhan Allah Allah knows already. But even though
Allah subhanaw taala Anna, record everything. And there are pens that are right. And so after that
the Prophet said a lot as I'm doing this whole trip, he saw so many things that Allah subhanho wa Taala showed him also, Jana
showed him Jana nee said, The I was showing Jana and the ground of Jana, you know the pebbles of Jana are made of
pearls, their pearls, and the smell of misc, the dirt, the dirt of it is like musk, you know what Musk is? It's like, it looks like it's white, but usually it's white, that white, but it's powdery. So it's so it's something that is smells extremely
pleasant. And it's one of the most expensive things a person can use to, you know, to, for for for perfume. And it's taken from a specific, some specific, only specific types of deer. And it's taken from, you know, the deer when it tries to track
the female and male deer when they and when it's mating season. And they try to attract each other they secrete this smell. And of course, that smell is very strong and very, very pleasant. And that's that's why it's very, very difficult to you can just mix anything. Right? And so that is that that's even a MISC mask. Mask.
buy it, what is it? What form is it? Usually?
Most people when you when you see, it might not even be real, but usually it's liquid, right? But that's because they mix it but the original form looks like it's powdered. So it smells so the Jana. Jana, the derivatives from musk. And the rocks and pebbles are the are like
look like pearls. And so anytime we speak about Jana, do you really? Do you really know what it is? Like? Does it look like what you imagine, like the pearls of this world? No. It's totally different. It's much better. And that's why when we when we describe Jana, the only thing that's the same is the words. There are so many things that we have that the people didn't have before. But sometimes we use the same words, we use the same word.
And they use the same words also. So when somebody in the old days, when they say shoot the other person, what do you what's that person thinking?
What are they using? Using? Yeah, bow and arrow right. And nobody thinks about guns. But you use the same word to shoot but is it the same shooting? It's not the same you don't need to pull and then release. Right? You don't have to have the keep the arrows it's already
You know, again, they're different but you use the same word. And so even though it's exact same thing, but the only thing that's the same is the word. Only thing that's the same as a word. And so when we speak about Janna ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada showed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Jana and Allah subhanaw taala did he meet Allah Subhana Allah than
the Prophet sallallahu so I was asked by Aisha, he said, No, no Quran. And now I was like, How can I see? So I believe it will see Allah subhana wa Fana on a day of judgment, but in this life in this world, the one is not able, we're not able to see a loss of the hand either. And when the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned from that night journey, that night, in the morning, he was sitting down, and he was sitting down next to the camera, sort of like he was he was thinking and reflecting. And Abuja knew.
He knew that the prophets alive so I was thinking about something. Because that's what, that's what it looked like. And so he says, Mohammed, what do you think? What are you thinking about? Like, what are you thinking about? And so he says, oh, last night, last night, I went to Jerusalem. We just came back this morning. And so Bucha has, Oh, really?
Okay. Can Can you say that again? What did you do? Like I went to Jerusalem last night, and I just came back. Alright, let's listen. Are you willing to so he's like, really happy? Why is he really happy?
He is really happy because he knows that this is ridiculous. Right? Imagine you come into me. Like, I'm the Imam and I'm praying. I'm sitting down. And after prayer, I'm like,
you asked me, and you say, share a man. What do we thinking about? Like, I was thinking about last night, I went to the moon and they came back.
I went to the moon, what would you say about me?
Like, I think we need to know what you
think is gonna lead to a hole?
Whether you really need any help.
I went to the moon last night, and I came back. Okay, I think we have a problem.
Houston, we have a problem.
If somebody so that's exactly when I wouldn't Abuja have heard that.
This is perfect. This is like, this is the perfect time now I can make people make fun of the promise of a lot as I was saying, like what he's saying, because in the old days, there's no way you could go to Jerusalem, we went there and come back. That's not possible. Right? That's not possible. It's not humanly possible in the old days, there's no way you can do that. So this is definitely something that's, you know, we can say that he's a little bit cuckoo, right? So that's why I Bucha was really happy. And so he was saying, listen, listen, are you I'm gonna call the people so he wants to call the people. He was like, let you guys listen. Listen, I want. Can you say that? Are
you Can you promise me to say the same thing? When I asked you again, in front of all the people? Are you willing to say the same thing? Because he's afraid? Right? He's now okay. He calls everyone to listen. And the process of alarm changes his story, then he's made to look like a fool. Like any time right ever said that. You're funny. No, no, no. Yeah, I did. I'm telling you the truth. If you bring the people and let them know, I'll tell them I did go to Jerusalem came back. Alright, come on, come on.
And so he calls Abuja calls the people and he's calling all everyone's everyone, you gotta hear this. Everyone, everyone come in. You have to hear this little Muhammad has to say, Come on everyone. So but yeah, it's very, very respected. So when he's calling everyone?
No, they come, right. And so he says to the prophets of Allah, they were so. So tell me what you told me just earlier to the people. What did you just say? And he said, Oh, last night, I went to Jerusalem, and I came back. I just came, I came back this morning, I went to Jerusalem last night, and they came back. And some of them that's exactly what they did. And one of the narrations is they said, they were laughing so hard. Some of them are tapping their head for them, you know, for for us, you know, when when it's so funny, what do we tap? What do we hit?
When it's really funny? What do you what do you slap? You slap like that, right? Do you know in Arabia, you know what they used to do? And it's something very funny. They used to hit their heads like yeah,
that's what they you
is to do, right. And so they were like, just like us. They were like laughing so hard from what they heard from the Messenger of Allah lives and they were like patting their heads. Just like how we pack our thighs. When something is so funny. Are you serious? Liquid?
In other words, they're like they're trying to say, you know, like our time we would say, Oh, look at this. He doesn't know what he's saying. You know, how could you How could you believe what He says? And so some of them they went they gotta tell you, we got to go to Abu Bakr this
and some of the new Muslims who just accepted Islam when they heard about it. Yeah, that's not right. You know, that's it's a it can be true, can't be true. So they went to Abu Bakr for the law. And because they're trying to shake his faith, Eman, shake his faith, the man to say that he's not a prophet and messenger Allah, that he's not truthful. He goes, they go to him. And he says to them, and they said to him, they said, Did you hear? Did you hear what your companion just said, today? Do you know what he what did he say? He just said he went to vital Marcus. He went to Jerusalem last night, and he came back. And so he said, Did he really say that? They said, Yeah, he did. If he said
that, then I believe it. That he did. If he said that he did?
i Why would I? Why would I have a hard time believing that? I believe even more than that. I believe that he received revelation from the heavens even further from the heavens, why would I believe this? Why would I believe this, and so they couldn't shake. See, this shook the faith of some people, but not Abu Bakr.
That's why he's called a Cydia. One who has strong faith and truly believes. And so they were unable to shake the faith of a worker. And so those they became, you know, those who were or those who believed, and they were strong, they became even stronger in their in their faith and others. There were some weak Muslims who actually apostate there are some narrations that they actually like, no, no, this is not for me. There are no so like, no Islam, and this can't be true. Like this. It can't be true. And so the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he told them then they're like, Yeah, you did go there. Okay, describe for us. describe for us what you saw,
to Jerusalem and they knew, they themselves they know, you know, they their merchants better they always travel. They knew that the Prophet sallallahu had never seen it.
And never seen Betamax had never seen and merci la casa. So the prophets, so then they asked him to describe. And so the messenger of allah sallallahu. So started describing what he saw. And then
then Allah subhana, Allah even made it more clear for him that he showed him. Because you know, when he went, what time did he go?
When did he go? And nighttime nighttime you don't see a lot of the details. Right? You can't see too much of the details. If somebody said, what does that look like? What does this look like and you win at nighttime? Like, I don't know, it was dark, I couldn't see much. What I didn't see was this and you wouldn't be able to describe it so vivid and clear in detail. But Allah subhana wa showed him. He said he as if he could see it when I was describing it to them. It's as if I was looking at it.
And then the prophets of Allah him of course, describing exactly how it was and the companion that were the other people who used to go traveling they went they saw before, they know what it looks like. And they know that he never saw it nowadays, it's really easy, right? Somebody says, oh, what does it look like? I can like for example, if I were to ask you
what is the Eiffel Tower look like? In Paris? Would anyone be able to have Have you gone to any gone to Paris? Like, most of you guys are not here have never went to Paris? Right? But if I said describe to me what the Eiffel tower looks like, Would you be able to describe for me? Yeah, easily right? Why?
Video pictures, but in the old days, there's no such thing. If you did not see it with your own eyes, you would not be able to describe it.
Especially in such details. You wouldn't be able to you unless you see it with your very own eyes. And so he was describing it when so much details
They knew that he wasn't lying. But even then, they did not believe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so,
of course, they rejected the fact that he went. And of course, those are the disbelievers. And the slotland. Mirage.
There's always been Roger, the messenger for loss of money, is it? Is there a specific, what month what day, there are many narrations that have come to us but one thing that we have to know that there are some Muslims who celebrate this day, like the night they have a celebration and they get together, just like how they celebrate Molad, the birthday of the Prophet sallallaahu them and this was this is a special occasion.
But there's nothing of course in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that tells us to,
to celebrate the such days. And even if somebody because, you know, even if somebody says, Okay, we just want to get together, and we want to speak about this throbbing Mirage, on that particular day. I mean, there's no specific time, that the companions that, okay, this day we get together, and we speak about your sorrow, and
if you choose a specific time to do something, and and you consider that an act of worship, then that's considered a bit that also that's considered a bit because the companions did not do it. And the Prophet sallallahu did not teach it. And of course, we don't have that we don't have an order, our reward for doing so. Specifically in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam So did he did the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam go because some people they think that no, this was not something that was physical. No, it was something that was physical. The Prophet said a lot. So it wasn't just a dream. It wasn't just a dream because Allah Subhana Allah the SRB AB
de la Leila, Amina al Masjid Al Haram al Masjid up so I live in a household. And you know, and it's not just he didn't go just by soul, and his body was was still in Mecca. But in fact, when you say
when you say
that's consists of The abtahi consists of soul and body. The default is its soul and body, so and body and so the message of allah sallallahu did not just see what he saw that I saw in a dream. And so what are some of the you know, when what, and of course there's an HMI I must have Muslims, that this miracle happen during the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and anyone who rejects this, some of the scholars have said this is something that's maloom Mina Dean Bambara what is Lumina Dean with Laura, the information is so clear that anyone who rejects it is not a Muslim.
Anyone who rejects is no Muslim. Why?
Because of that hadith, but number one, number one, but what's even more firm more strong than that.
It's in the Quran. When Allah subhana wa ter speaks about some incident in the Quran, then you reject it, that means you reject the Quran, to reject part of it as rejecting the Quran, when the Quran speaks about it clearly. And that's why there is a consensus amongst the scholars that's it's one of the miracles of the Messenger of Allah Azza wa s and He who rejects this particular miracle is rejecting something that is a, a, you know, a principle or rejecting some knowledge and information that's confirmed in the Quran. And the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And those who rejected they are as they're rejecting the word of Allah subhanaw taala because it's
But for those who say that, Oh, no, we believe it. But we think it's something that spiritual, you know, like, not physical, he went, his soul went in not. Well, that's in that interpretation. Of course, we say that that person is wrong, incorrect, but we don't say that they reject it, because they still believe it, but they just interpreted in a different manner in a different way. So,
this, this is also
this is also very, very important. Why because right before this, the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam was going through a lot of difficulties.
But now he's going to also he's going to people. After this to Medina, Medina, there are people there who are what are Jews, they are Jews that are waiting for the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it has them waiting for the Prophet
sallallahu they're waiting for him. Because it's mentioned in their books.
Because it's mentioned in their books. And, and that's, that's one of the reasons why they're in Medina to start with. But when the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam comes, of course they reject Him. So what's significant about this rotten Mirage also, it's indicated all the prophets and messengers are also you know, of the say they cared, they came with the same message. They all came with the same message, the message of Allah, Allah and Allah, Muhammad Rasool Allah. And so we went to Bethel Marcus. And so we as Muslims, of course, we consider Bethel madness, Jerusalem,
Al Masjid Al Aqsa
to be a
holy site for us also, for Muslims for believers in Allah subhanho wa taala. This was a land of prophets and messengers of Allah Subhana Allah, and Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed blessed it. So Al Masjid up so you go the whole area, the sanctuary areas pretty large as honor on a hill. Right, it's on a hill. And when you go, you will see the masjid,
Masjid AFSA. And then you also see
you know, COVID, the Sahara, when somebody says, when you when you see Jerusalem, the most prominent thing is the Dome of the Rock, by the golden dome, that's like, you know, that's something that everybody knows you see the picture, you know what it is, and everybody knows what that is. Everybody knows where that is. It's like it's very, very, you know, very something that's very, very well known.
But the whole area actually is
Al Masjid Al Aqsa, including the Dhamma rock, and also the masjid of the people that message Qibla also, and that's why, by of course, right now you have a masjid. And then you have mercy outside and then you have the whole area of massage. And then you have there's too much it's the, the the Dome of the Rock, and also you have the masjid. And then you have also other smaller massages in that in that. And actually in that particular area. For those who in May, Allah subhanaw taala returned beta muftis and in the end to the Muslims and Allah subhanaw taala in the end, will allow the Muslims, the believers in Allah, those who worship Him to inherit his lead. And so this is a promise and this
is something that we know that's going to happen in this there's so many difficulties. I mean, you know, what the situation in in Palestine right now. But we also have to understand that Allah Subhana Allah gives the Muslims victory. But most people don't know what victory means. What is victory means? What is victory mean? There's victory individually for all of us success and victory. What is success for each individual person? It's dying in a state of Allah and the state of sorrow in a state of that you're pleased that instead of Islam, doing that, which is pleasing to Allah,
doing that, which is pleasing to Allah, and that's why when haram DeMille Han when he was stabbed, and he saw the blood, he said first to Arabica, so I have succeeded by the Lord of the Kava. So success is dying in a state of Islam That's why Allah says yeah, yeah, Aladdin Amulet of Allah. Have a Ducati Walter Matana. illa Anta Muslim, are you who believe. Fear Allah as you should be. He should be feared, have taqwa and Allah be conscious of Allah
and do not die except in the state of Islam. So that's true, true success. Because when you die in the state of Islam, Charlotte, you have Jana, you have Jen Now, anyone who dies in the state of Islam, you will have Jana, even if that person is a sinner, as long as they don't do anything that take them out, takes them out of the pool of Islam. They will eventually eventually intergender and that's why our brothers and sisters, when they are going to difficulties that they're going through Allah subhanho wa Taala has given them success.
When you die as a martyr, in the path of Allah, that's true success. That's true success, and they will realize they know of course
It's hard for us to sometimes reflect. But when you die in a state of Islam that's, that's true success. That's what that's what we call a house and career. That's what we call the major, the major success. And what's the evidence? And what's the proof? Well, how can you say that sound? Yeah, because you wouldn't when it comes to non Muslims, when somebody dies, what do you call it? What do you call what do you say?
What did they call? What did they call they call it they say that's, that's such a tragedy. Right? Such a tragedy. That's such a calamity. But Allah subhanaw taala he describes,
in the suit and sort of the rules for example, those people who believed in Allah,
you know, when the king ordered them, to say that He was God, and to worship others and ALLAH SubhanA, Allah, Allah, and they refuse to do so.
And those who refuse to do so, they were throwing into thrown into a trench. And they were because they believed in Allah, Allah subhana, Allah says, in the Lilina, fatten on what we need. One more minute those who made who tested and oppressed the believers and they don't repent to Allah they will have a fellow who Allah will Johanna Mala muda will hurry. And Allah subhana wa Tada mentions us How do you know in Surah Rouge but in the end, Allah Subhana Allah Allah says in La Nina Amma know where I'm you know, Sally hatherleigh home Jeanette, Jeanette antigen, even Tatiana, their legal household carrier, Allah after mentioning all of this and every and what they did to this to
the believers, because the believers those who said
who did not
who believed in Allah, they will kill and they were pushed into the fire. And so is that a major tragedy, Allah cause that he says radical house, okay. That is the major victory.
What is the major victory they were killed?
What is the major victory, the major victory because they have gender,
everyone's going to die. But to die in a state, the state of Islam in a state that Allah is pleased with you. That is true victory. That's true victory. And that's why Allah subhanho wa taala. You know, he's testing the believers testing them, is testing us at the same time also to see if we make dua for them, if our hearts are with them or not, because if your hearts are not with them, that means we're not really believers. We're not one with the and that's why the if this is if we truly believe that they are, they are our mothers, they are our sisters, they are our brothers. They are the people who are dying there, that they are rather than that we are brothers
in faith, if that's truly the case, you know, if our own mother or children, if they were in that situation, how would we behave? What would we be doing? What kind of do would we be making? That's the type of dua that we should be making. If we're truly believers, if we did believe, and if we they are, if we are indeed one body, if we are indeed one body, and we are and that's why the OMA is feeling it right now. Because any tragedy that happens anywhere,
it hurts, it's hard, it hurts us like but we also can console ourselves, that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has Inshallah, the difficulties that they go through Allah subhanaw taala we shall accept their shahada and enter them Jana, and we make dua for them, that Allah accepts their shahada, that Allah subhanaw taala in terms of Jana, as if that the just like, if this were to happen to our own family members, we will do the same thing.
We will do the same thing, but for the so these are our brothers and sisters that are going through the difficulties. That's why we should do our very best to try to make a change in wherever we can.
Whenever we can in sha Allah, and with that, inshallah I know almost prayer time we ask Allah subhana wa to teach us that which benefits isn't that which has taught us was ALLAH, ALLAH and, and Mohammed? Well, and he was
and the world
