Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah I mean while he was so happy Jemaine a Mahbub. So we're going to be looking at the story of the Night Journey and the ascension of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, into the heavens known as Al Israa. Well Mirage, and we're going to look at the story, more or less in brief, and then we're going to look at some of the wisdoms and the lessons from it the benefits from the story. And I want to say, to focus on something in particular, and that is

00:00:42 --> 00:01:20

indicating that the story happened to the Prophet SAW Selim in body and in spirit, that it was not a dream, as you will find some authors today saying that claiming that it was just a dream that the browser lamb had, and it was not in body and in spirit to also focus on that aspect of it. So let's start with the fact that this is the most thoroughly documented incident in the Meccan era, the most thoroughly documented, so it's funny that when people choose to challenge the story, they're challenging the most thoroughly documented incident.

00:01:22 --> 00:02:13

So there are 20 narrations in Sahih al Bukhari through six different companions. On the story of Islam. There are 18 narrations as a Muslim through seven different companions. Besides the fact that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned some of its incidents in turut and Najeeb, and Intuit Illustra. So let's start with the verse in Surah Surah Allah Subhana Allah says Allah Allah Himanshu, trois rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim so behind and levy as raw br ba de Leyland Mina al Masjid Al haram mi il al Masjid in Aqsa Allah the Barak now how Allah who the Nuria who mean Tina in who was semi old bossy, so Allah subhanaw taala bring begins by praising himself Praise be to Him Subhan Allah the a

00:02:13 --> 00:02:33

surah Brd is surah in Arabic, and Israa Hua say roll call Villa Leyland. So Arabic as you know, is a very precise and very detailed language. And there is a specific name for one the caravan travels at night. That's called an extra. Alright.

00:02:34 --> 00:02:54

I'm just laughing because many I don't know, six or seven years ago, there was someone who was so confidently telling me no, no, I saw it doesn't mean that and he was so confident that I went back home that night and Googled it again and looked it up and yes, it's exactly what it means. But I shouldn't have listened to him. He was just Arab.

00:02:55 --> 00:02:57

Confident yet wrong.

00:02:59 --> 00:03:48

Alright, anyways, I'm kidding for those who don't get it. I'm kidding. So Israa Satan confident Leyland, the caravan traveling at night that's Illustra pipe. So Allah Subhana Allah says Subhan Allah the extra Blvd Leyland right you see it twice the night is mentioned twice. So Glory be to Him who took his servant on a night journey at night. Right because Elektra is traveling at night and then Layton means that night. So the MUFA city and the linguist say when you have the night mentioned twice, it indicates that the entire journey only took a part of the night and that's exactly what happened. The prostate alum went and just part of the night from an Masjid Al haram

00:03:48 --> 00:04:10

from in Mecca all the way to an masjid and Aqsa Al Aqsa means about the furthest most and at that time, there was no mystery that was more to the west than this mystery there was the furthest Western Masjid in the west direction. Further away it was called the xi and about the furthest most. So

00:04:12 --> 00:04:28

unless the bow Rachna hula hoops that we have put Baraka blessing around it. So the scholars said that means that there is baraka in the land. And of course, we're talking about the land of Philistine May Allah free it from the hands of the Zionist.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:59

So the land is blessing so they said that means it's trees are blessing it's water is blessing and the land itself has blessing in it from Allah subhanaw taala Allah the bark mahalo so that we may show him from our signs. And Allah indeed is the the old hearing the old see. So that's inserted this first verse, Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning and referring to this verse, or to this incident, and this happened to the timing now

00:05:00 --> 00:05:45

Before we begin this happened after what is known as the year of sorrow. So this is after the death of Abu Talib, which in some narrations three days later in other narration is two months later, her digital Dylon dies. So now the prophets Allah, the his protector from the humans outside of the house and his support inside the house, both are gone. Then he takes the journey to a PIF, which doesn't go well. And so the historians and the scholars refer to that year as the year of sorrow or sadness because of how sad and and how difficult life was for the Prophet SAW Allah Allah is Allah. So the timing is excellent now because now an individual Allah Salam is going to see some amazing

00:05:45 --> 00:06:02

signs of Allah subhanaw taala he's going to see al Jana is going to see punishment in the Hellfire is going to meet the prophets and lead them in Salah and see Jabril in His original form, and he's going to speak to Allah azza wa jal. So you can understand the upliftment that happens after such a journey.

00:06:04 --> 00:06:04


00:06:05 --> 00:06:06


00:06:07 --> 00:06:48

there, we said, there are many narration, so we're going to, we're going to take like a mixture of all the narration is to more or less get the full story. So in one narration, the prostate limb was at the Kaaba, and another narration, he was at his home when Gibreel came to him and he opened his chest and took his heart out. So you will find some of the books, some of the contemporary books will deny this. And they say, and they'll either skip it or say in the dream, he washed his chest by, first of all, the first washing of the of the chest and the word of the heart of the prophets of salaam happened when he was five years old, right? So five years old was the first one and now this

00:06:48 --> 00:07:33

is the second incident when is much this is much later. Right? This is the which I forgot to mention. When does this happen? They saw in Mara journey, the scholars said some said one year before the hijra, others said 13 months before the hedge had other said 15 month before the Hijra to Medina, other said eight months, but there are about 15 different opinions here. But more or less, we're looking at a period of a year before the Hijra to Medina. And so this is so much later on in the process. The limit, this point is about 50 Witnesses we're looking we're looking at 11 years or so, is about 51 years. So the first one was a eight, five and now the second one is at age 51. So

00:07:33 --> 00:08:17

what prompted this, because the problem is about to go on this journey. That is a very difficult journey. And he's going to see things that no human being can can handle seeing. If you remember the narration when the prophets of asylum, Sergey Brin in His original form for the first time what happened in one of the narrations, he fainted. And now he's going to start see Jabril in His original form for the second time, but it isn't fate this time, because this is in preparation for that journey to strengthen his heart. So you realize Salam came and open the chest of the Prophet SAW Selim from here all the way to like his navel basically, or his abdomen, lower abdomen. And the

00:08:17 --> 00:09:00

problem could see this and I want you to understand when the companion said the problem was the bravest one amongst us. And we've got a number of things to discuss. Number one, those who denied this incident, they said, how can we believe in open heart surgery happening in the desert? Bye bye habibi. What is harder to believe? Open heart surgery, which I'm sure is happening right now somewhere in the world as we speak. Someone's having open heart surgery. So this is something that we can what is a bigger thing to believe in? Open heart surgery? Or Gibreel? Ali Salah, the leader of all the angels share, do you do not go through mirror? What is harder, which is the stronger

00:09:00 --> 00:09:14

thing to believe it the bigger deal? Jabril Ali Salam. I didn't tell you that 1400 years ago, Dr. Choudry, performed open heart surgery in the middle of the desert without anesthetics and sterilization and equipment.

00:09:15 --> 00:09:57

It said Gibreel is Salam Did you understand? So consider the surgeon not the surgery. If I told you that you breed them there is a who's Jabril Allah is one of the most magnificent angels in his god 700 wings, each one will cover the horizon. Okay, make sense of a deal with Dr. Siddiqui? Did it tell Allah How did that Siddiqui do it that does it? That makes no sense. So consider the surgeon when people want to deny the what happened. You know what's interesting is if the medical biller Anneliese the servant or was the servant of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said I used to come to Arthur on my hip I used to see the scar of when the where the problems heart was opened. His chest

00:09:57 --> 00:10:00

was opened by Do you think

00:10:00 --> 00:10:22

Jibreel Metra, don't you think Jabril could have done it without leaving a scar? Probably right. If he could take his heart out and wash it and bring it back, he could also probably do it without a scar. But why leave the scar? So the * or the lawn who will see it and he will tell us that he saw it. So it's not in a dream. It's not impossible, it actually happened. So,

00:10:23 --> 00:11:09

so the prophets Allah sallam, he said Gibreel split his chest open like this and took his heart and he washed it in a twist which is like a bowl a bowl like that has a flat kind of bottle of gold and he washed his heart in it he filled it with wisdom and he filled it with eemaan and then he sealed it back all right, then so this is in preparation for the journey then the problem says they brought a brought Al Buraq Gibreel iclm brought this animal that the prophets Allah Salah is going to write and the program described it very accurately it's as if you can see it right now if you close your eyes or if your can Photoshop and image of it. It's possible because the porcelain said it white and

00:11:09 --> 00:11:13

then he said folk on him are we're doing elbowroom

00:11:14 --> 00:11:24

larger than a donkey and smaller than a mule. Thus, can you see it? Yeah. You know what a mule looks like? You know what a mule is?

00:11:25 --> 00:11:26

Anyone know what a mule is?

00:11:29 --> 00:11:36

An mule is a hybrid animal. Its its mother is a horse. While Booba Hammar

00:11:39 --> 00:11:52

its father is a donkey. And the mother is a horse that that creates what is known as a mule. Okay, buddies. All right. If it's the opposite lol Amara.

00:11:54 --> 00:12:02

It's such a great opportunity to say that if the mother is a donkey, and the father is a horse, that's not a mule. Anyone know what that's called in in in English.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:48

Now, it's called the Heaney, hai double and why that's a Heaney. And actually it looks very different than a mule, it's much smaller and looks more Donkey like, you know, whereas the mule has. It has the surefootedness of a donkey but stronger than that, and it has the stronger immune system of the donkey. But it has also the strength of the much much stronger than a donkey because it's big, much bigger because of the horse. So it's like a really good mix, a good blend, but it is also an animal that it's not a viable it's not it's sterile, because just for those who are interested, a dog, the donkey has 62 chromosomes and the horse has 64 chromosomes. And the mule has 63

00:12:48 --> 00:12:51

chromosomes. What's the problem?

00:12:52 --> 00:13:27

In order to procreate? What happens to your reproductive cells? They split in half, right? You get half from the Father, half from the mother. But 63 How do you split that in half? That's why for the most part, they are sterile. They're not able to have other offspring. And what am The point is that the prostate and said it's white, and it's larger than a donkey and smaller than a mule color. You can see it what about the narrations of wings? What about the narration that it has a human face and everything else was a horse all these nations are weak

00:13:28 --> 00:14:09

bears, no wings, no face of a human all these things are weak and you will look at all birds old to the Persian paintings of this human face on this animal that looks weird anyways, I know and this is an honor to write this animal it didn't look very what they draw. It doesn't look nice at all by so the prophets Allah Salem, then when he came to write it one narration mentioned that the animal moved a little bit before the problem could write it and you breathed spoke to it. He said why are you doing that no one has ever written you who is greater than he SallAllahu sallam. And when he said that Prosser Lim said the animal start to sweat. It got nervous. So it could say that it was

00:14:09 --> 00:14:52

Alanna an animal that could understand someone said this is evidence that the Buraq is not from Al Jana, because it's from a Jana, it will not move away. Because everything in a Jana is obedient. Right. When you want the burden of Jana? Does it come to you? Well as if Allah flies away, and you have to chase it, when you want fruits and agenda do they come down to you will you have to get up and fall off a ladder? Everything is obedient and urgent. So someone said this is proof that the Buddha came from another planet, and that's proof machine no machine obeyed. Now we're in another world now. And then he said this is proof that there are aliens also that exist and all the stuff.

00:14:52 --> 00:14:53


00:14:54 --> 00:14:59

so it's it's simple. It could still be from an agenda, but it was

00:15:00 --> 00:15:46

Take it was put in a world and it was out of its element, meaning the Buraq is from Elgin. It never felt heat. It never felt sand in its eyes. It never felt jagged rocks, you know, against its hooves. And so it was in a world that was different to it. So it behave differently, less, we'd have to create a new world where aliens live, it just could be from a Jana. But it's in a weird place. It's not from earth, but behave differently. But then when Jabril told it, it reacted, and then the porcelain rolled on this animal. And then the problem described how it moves, he says, where it puts its hoof where and its stride is at the end of where it can see meaning if you can see the at the

00:15:46 --> 00:16:04

end liquid the horizon, that's where it puts his hoof like that, that's one step. So you can see 123 They insane distance that we can cover in no time. There is an explanation also from the scholars, that makes a lot of sense, okay. And that is that the Buraq

00:16:05 --> 00:16:20

it puts it off, but it jumps as far as it can see. So it can seem till the end of the horizon here. So it jumps in the air and lands there. Then it jumps to the next point as far as its I can see. And what is that narration or explanation make a lot of sense.

00:16:21 --> 00:17:07

Makes a lot of sense because it explains how later on on the way back the prophets Allah Salam was able to see the caravan with the missing camel. He was able to see it from up top and he yelled out to the to the men where their camel was because he was able to see it from his vantage point. Makes sense. Makes sense. Yeah, it makes a lot of sense. Yeah. Excellent. But, so, so then the, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, this is the the Surat journey. The Prophet SAW Selim, right, this Buraq this animal and goes from Mecca to baited mark this, this is a journey that took one month going and one month coming in the process limb because of how this animal moves, you can understand how he did

00:17:07 --> 00:17:53

it in a very short period of time. He was at beta mock this. And they will have a different number of iterations here, but one of them is that they arrived at beta. And then the problem says, For robot to dab Bill halacha allottee your bill to be al Anbiya. Oh, you're beautiful Ambia. So I tied the Baroque down or at the post where all the prophets tied their animals. Because someone said the fact that across the proscenium tide the Buraq indicates that it was also from another planet and not from Elgin because Jana animals are obedient, and the Buraq wouldn't go anywhere, so he wouldn't have to tie it down. But Rossum told you why he tied it down. So very nice hint there, he said, at

00:17:53 --> 00:18:19

the same post where all the profits tied their animals. So the prophets of Salaam is saying all my brothers, they came to this place the Mr. de la casa. And they all came home on worldly animals that would stray and go somewhere else if they didn't tie them down. And so they all tied out down there animals in this post. And even though my animals not going to run away, I'm going to tie it. We're all my brothers tied their cameras. You understand? Like the

00:18:21 --> 00:18:28

in line with all nobody's impressed. Yeah. Thank you very much. Shaka Brahim. Appreciate it. Okay, anyways.

00:18:30 --> 00:18:33

I like these things because I don't like aliens and talk about aliens. Okay.

00:18:35 --> 00:18:42

Plus, why would aliens come to you on the Arabian Peninsula? Everybody knows aliens come to America. Sahara.

00:18:44 --> 00:19:34

All right. Great. So then the problem goes into bait and muck of this. We've got two narrations one narration says he went into battle Maccabeus. Then he led all the prophets in prayer, and then he ascended up to the heavens. The other narration is that he went into Baitul muck this ascended up to the heavens, and then came back down and let all the prophets in prayer. So either way, what's important is what what's important is Allah subhanaw taala honoring his prophets of Allah Salah and any with him leading all the prophets of Allah. So did he lead them all in body and or in spirit? Some of the scholars said he led them all in spirit, meaning the porcelain was there in body and His

00:19:34 --> 00:19:59

Spirit, but he led the spirit of all the prophets of Allah in Salah and others said no, he led them in body and in spirit because Allah subhanaw taala honored him by bringing them in body and in spirit. And an interesting note, as you remember, the Earth does not consume the bodies of profits, so their bodies were still in 100% good condition.

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

So they were embodying His Spirit, He led them into salah, and then he ascended up or he ascended and came back and led them in prayer. The point is that the honor of having him as the final messenger lead all the messengers and prophets in Salah. Now.

00:20:18 --> 00:21:07

So in this narration, the Brazilian prayed, and then he stepped out of El Masjid Al Aqsa, and then Gibreel brought him a container of wine and a container of milk. And he gave him a choice to drink. And so the scholar said, this was obviously before wine became haram. Because if wine or haram, what would be the option or the choice? And if someone brings you beef and pork, is it a test really for you? And he saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as we know, never drank wine, not even before prophethood so he took the milk and Jabril Ali Salam tells him our sub Patel fitrah eonni, your choice coincided or agreed with Al fitrah, which is the natural disposition and the milk represented

00:21:07 --> 00:21:53

the fitrah because the milk is a liquid in its natural form, whereas wine has gone through a chemical alteration in order to become wine. So it's something that has been altered and not close to the fitrah. So the porcelain chose the the wine, I mean, sorry, the stuffer Allah porcelain chose the milk, and he drank from it. Then the process Lim said, then the Mao Raj was brought forth. And the Mirage Ibn cathedra mo Allah says it's like up slitted dome like a ladder. But basically, anything that takes you from a low position to a high position is a match Yanyan elevators a mirage, escalators and stairs a Mirage is lather as a matter. But what's interesting, the prophets Allah wa

00:21:53 --> 00:22:19

sallam described the Buraq in excellent detail to the point where if you close your eyes, you can see it, but never described anything about the marriage. Not its color, not its shape, not at size, not how it moves or anything. Just one narration says then the Mirage was brought forth, then another narration system, or I didn't JB then I was then extended upwards, and he didn't describe the instrument whatsoever. Who knows why

00:22:20 --> 00:22:21

not? I

00:22:23 --> 00:22:27

would like to take a guess why? Why didn't he describe the marriage at all?

00:22:30 --> 00:22:31

Where is it taking him?

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


00:22:35 --> 00:22:35


00:22:37 --> 00:22:40

Maybe? Let's do this. That's not bad. I've never heard that before. yesha

00:22:42 --> 00:22:42


00:22:44 --> 00:22:45

Okay, possibly.

00:22:48 --> 00:22:52

Okay, so can we handle those are some of them?

00:22:53 --> 00:22:54


00:22:58 --> 00:23:41

So they said the scholars mentioned that, first of all, we don't have any evidence, what's the marriage going to do? It's going to take him beyond the our first worldly heaven. Beyond space. This is an insane distance, and at insane speeds, something we cannot understand. So they said number one, we don't even have proof that proselyte understood the mechanism through which it works, let alone to explain it to the Companions. How would they understand it? If today we can understand? You see what I'm saying? So this way, the porcelain never described the marriage because even if he understood it mechanically, he couldn't explain it that would take away from the story us one, look

00:23:41 --> 00:24:25

at this insane contraption, this device. It's amazing. And how does it work? And problem explaining that? Okay, so that's, that's why the person did not describe the Natarajan whatsoever. Now one time, someone who is like really brilliant in science and what have you, but Muslim, came to me and said, I have a problem with the astroid. mallet. And not because he said the problem would have to move faster than the speed of light. And if I had time, I would explain to you what would happen to the human body if it moves faster than the speed of light. And he said, I have a problem with the splitting of the moon because of the tides and the connection with the gravitational pull between

00:24:25 --> 00:24:59

the Moon and the Earth. And that would throw things out of the air, no order and all that. He said, I also have a problem with the splitting of the moon. I said the archetype all these things, the gravitational relationship between the Earth and the Moon and what happens to the human body at the speed of all these things. Who created all these laws? He said, Allah azza wa jal. I said, Can Allah put a law he created on pause for a minute? He said, Yes. I said, What's the problem? True story. He said, There is no problem

00:25:00 --> 00:25:15

How's it fixed? There's no not an issue anymore. You know? So when people try to say, well, it's impossible, how could the problem travel these insane distances of the animal? Taking these? Let's go back to Dr. Choudry. again and you understand how all right?

00:25:16 --> 00:25:17


00:25:18 --> 00:26:00

so the prophets Allah Selim, then it takes to get on this on the Raj and goes up to the heavens does not the sky but they haven't. And some scholars say the first heaven is beyond space even, which is still growing. But either way, every time the process every time they reached one of the gates of the heavens to seven heavens, and I'm not gonna I'm just going to describe it once. So we don't go through it every time you breathe it Salem would knock on the gate of that heaven, and the angel will say, Who is it and he would say, Jabril then you would say, who is with you, anyone with you? And he will say Mohammed and then he would welcome them Salallahu Salam, then he would open the

00:26:00 --> 00:26:41

gates of that heaven and they would go into the heaven. So in the first heaven, and maybe Salah Salem described that he saw them I didn't set up and he described also the this narration describe the size of Adam and his Salah when he looked to the right, he laughed and when he didn't there was a huge mass to his right. When he looked at his right, he laughed and when he looked to his left, he there was a huge mass to his left and he would cry. So he asked you breed who is that? And he said that is Adam Ali Salah said what are these two his right and left? He said that is like a representation or from his progeny that will enter a Jana that's to his right. So when he sees them,

00:26:41 --> 00:27:14

he's happy and he laughs and he smiles. Then it looks to the left and he sees the representation or his progeny that will enter the hellfire. So he cries for them because he is our Father and His Salah. So then the prostate lung went to him and he welcomed him he said welcome righteous Prophet, righteous son. And then they went to the second heavens and they sought permission in the same way and then they were they entered the second heaven. He says there I saw a banana and Karla the two basically cousins right all right, he's

00:27:15 --> 00:27:56

a Silas Salah and you're here and then the bra Salam describes Eastside his salah I think we mentioned this before, bro, Selim is always keen to describe a Saudi set up. And towards the end of times describes even the color of the garment that he's going to be wearing describes the length of his hair, what kind of areas and part of that is to set him apart from the other messy, and that is the the Judd who has a different build a different style of hair. So the President described a stylist Salam so well there, he said, and the one who looks the most from all of you. He's telling the Companions, the one who looks the most like a sub memoriam and his Salah is AutoWeb numerous

00:27:56 --> 00:28:41

road. So he says ordinance or is the one who looked at resembles him the most inbuild in shape and appearance. So then he they sought permission and they go into the third heaven and in the third heaven, he saw use of it, Sarah, he says, I saw use of it, Sarah, work hard. We're either who are called the oral Clea Shep rel Causton. I saw the use of Irish Salah and he has been given half of the Beauty by half of the beauty. What does that mean? Some one opinion. That's like the scholars like giving a name Rahim Allah have has this opinion. He said half of the beauty that would have been distributed amongst all of mankind, Yanni.

00:28:43 --> 00:28:53

And we don't know how many billions of people were will live and die from the time of Adam, until the day of judgment. So all these human beings Allah.

00:28:55 --> 00:29:13

Let's just for lack of a better term, say, Allah set aside an amount of beauty to be distributed amongst all the faces and bodies and hairs of all these people by and he took that beauty, cut it in half, give half of it to other bodies Salah to use of Elisa and the risk to the rest of creation.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:16

To luck, isn't it

00:29:17 --> 00:29:42

good to choice, isn't it? It's Allah. So that's why this is not a very popular opinion. Another opinion says half and this is one of the more popular ones and more accepted. Half the beauty of Adam is a Salah because hands down you have to believe that the most handsome human being ever would have been Adam palestra not used to my setup. Why?

00:29:43 --> 00:30:00

Yeah, because Allah subhanaw taala created them but not only created them. Allah is who will honor the other Muslim and shaped him with his own hand subhanaw taala in my HELOC to be a day Allah Israel says so hands down the most handsome man and girl you

00:30:00 --> 00:30:04

dutiful man ever has to be Adam Alayhis Salam and the most beautiful woman ever asked to be

00:30:05 --> 00:30:19

hawa if so. So Yusuf Ali Salam was given half of the beauty of them. This is the opinion of Ibn katheer and even Josie rahamallah There's a third opinion that says,

00:30:21 --> 00:31:10

half of this is what Abraham Allah, that's his opinion, he says half of the absolute maximum of beauty. Basically, this is again, not one of the more popular ones, the second one was the most popular meaning that what is a maximum amount of beauty that any one human being could ever get, ever possibly get. And half of that was given to us to find a seller. All right, not a very popular opinion. There is another opinion that you may have heard might have heard before, and that is half because they said the processor limb use strike strange wording when he said look, I knew either who or Concordia shocked Ron Huston, he was given half of the beauty. So the proceeds from this fourth

00:31:10 --> 00:31:39

opinion says that he was talking about himself, but out of bashfulness and shyness, he didn't want to say half of my beauty be said half of the beauty. So this fourth opinion, this group says that the problem that Adam that use of Islam had half the beauty of the Prophet sallallahu Christendom, there is a Hadith but it's weak in sunnah Tirmidhi This is the bra Salam tells us companions that no prophet has been given an appearance or

00:31:40 --> 00:32:25

the need that he's the best of the prophets in appearance or in looks, but it's a weak Hadith. So now let me ask you something if use of it Salah and you know the beauty of use of Iris Salaam and how people were taken by his beauty, the women when they had the fruits and the knives, Allah didn't say well kata an idea when he said the World Cup Barna idea that they cut their hands multiple times and it can you imagine how gone you have to be how taken you have to be by something to cut your hand and palm with a knife once and not feel it and cut again. There's nothing that can distract you that much in this world right? I mean, I don't know maybe Tiktok for the kids can

00:32:26 --> 00:32:34

cut their hand multiple times. But nothing really right one cut he had like a yield cursing whatever this thing that distracted you saw

00:32:35 --> 00:32:54

and they said detonate in Hydra in the Malecon Kareem is just like an honorable Angel. It's not him. He's not even a human. So let me ask you if the prostate limb had twice that beauty, don't you think there will be more noticeable in the Sierra? Don't you think? Yeah. So some of

00:32:55 --> 00:33:45

some of the scholars said this they about the prophets of salaam that Allah azza wa jal case Allah who will Gemma that Bill Jelen that Allah azza wa jal would have made the process a lump at the Hamsa handsomeness and level of use of it salah but he covered or have some say, you have that beauty and give the other half in Haber, a commanding presence. Why? Because that is befitting for a prophet who is going to go into battle who is going to strangle a ship on who is going to, you know, deal with enemies and negotiate. And it's not befitting to be insanely handsome at this point is befitting to have a commanding presence, where people cannot look you in the eye enough. And that's

00:33:45 --> 00:33:57

why we have the narration of Omaha when he said that it was it was a full night. Yeah. And he said Leila mocha Mira was a night with the full moon. And he says he starts

00:33:59 --> 00:34:39

he says, I started to look at the face of the problem. Then look at the full moon can you imagine someone doing something like that? And you're just looking at someone's face and looking at the moon comparing the beauty of the to the brightness of the two. And then he says for the witchwood rasool Allah is Allah Allah Azza agua Amin al Ahmad said, and the face of the prophets all sudden, was brighter than the moon. And then he said, What I cannot, cannot learn a stealthy rule a no deal and Navara fie what G with G Rasulillah. Salsa, you he said we couldn't stare at him for a long time. One of the companions said, I never got my fill of looking at the Prophet SAW Allah because he had

00:34:39 --> 00:34:59

this Haber, this commanding presence, so you can't stare at him. But you would look and then you'd look away and then go back again. And then you'd look away. So So that's that fourth opinion. I just wanted to mention it's not a very popular one. The second one is the most popular. Half of the beauty of them are a setup

00:35:00 --> 00:35:53

by so, so then they sought permission and go they went up to the fourth heaven where he saw Idris it his salah, and and by the way, second and third heaven. So Asa and yeah here and use of and Idris Alima Salam, all of them said welcome righteous Prophet righteous brother, Adam Alayhis Salam is the only one who said son than the rest, brother. Then he goes to the fifth heaven and then he says I there I saw her own Sheikh Angelina and an old man, a chef with a commanding presence. And he said, Welcome, righteous Prophet, righteous brother, then they sought permission until the sixth heaven, and he went in and there he saw Musa alayhis salaam, who said welcome, righteous Prophet, righteous

00:35:53 --> 00:36:08

brother, and then they, they went to the seventh heaven. And there the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, I saw, and bait and Malmo which, in English were referred to it or translated as the most frequented house. And,

00:36:10 --> 00:36:33

and it's basically, as the problem described it, it is the caliber of the heavens, the Kaaba of the heavens. And the grace of them then said, every day 70,000 Angels visit this place, this cabin of the heavens, and they never come back to it. Meaning there are unique visitors to use the

00:36:34 --> 00:37:20

website visitor terms and their unique visitors, they will come for the first time, and they'll never come again. And next day, another 70,000 Come, this is their first visit, and they're never going to do a second visit, just they'll never gonna come again. So it tells you the huge numbers of angels that Allah subhanaw taala has created who are worth worshiping Him non stop, non stop and quality and in quantity of worship. Now, if you are 30 years old, today, just since the time you were born until today, when your turn 30 766 million angels visited al betul Memorial, or if in the, in the

00:37:21 --> 00:38:10

in the 1400 years, since the President told us of this incident. Yeah, not an Allah knows how long this has been going on. But since the President told us about this, until today, that would be somewhere around 370 billion angels are like 8 billion people on earth now 370 billion angels just since the time the Prophet I'm told us of this, in 1400 years, would have visited the better mammal, let alone the 1000s of years before that. And that's why you always see how Allah in the Quran mentions that Do you not see that he is worshipped or praised by those in the heavens and in the earth. And now you see what it means inhabits these immense numbers of the angels. So what happens?

00:38:11 --> 00:38:55

This is the elbaite This is elbaite and Malmo and then there was someone with his back against this is like such a such a cool, such a cool, such a cool position. There is someone chilling with his back against the cab of the heavens, just like that. And that was Ibrahim Ali salah, who welcomed the Prophet saw as a lamp he said, Welcome, righteous Prophet, righteous son, right, because he is the the Annie, the father of Ismail, who is from the fathers of our prophets of Allah Christendom. So he welcomed them. Then the bra Salam said the one who looks the most like him, it looks resembles him the most is your companion meaning

00:38:57 --> 00:39:43

himself that he's the one who looks to most like Ibrahim Ali set up like even the process of them notice that and then the process. Abraham and his salah is the only one and we love Ibrahim Ali Salam so much. We cannot even sent full salah upon our Prophet unless we present salah upon Ibrahim Ali Salah we're the ones we're the ones that have rights to Ibrahim more than anyone more than any other religion. We're the ones who mention him in Artesia hood in every single prayer. So he is the only one who sent us a gift and salaam with the prophets, Allah Sanlam he said, upgrade on Metallica, Minnesota, give your Enma salam from me. The only one who did that

00:39:44 --> 00:39:59

LA salatu salam. And then he says then he sent us a gift he said tell them that and Jana has very fertile soil and to plant something in a Jana you Say Subhan Allah when hamdulillah Allahu Akbar Allah Allah

00:40:00 --> 00:40:43

Lola and the scholars say you can say them in any order. And when you say any one of these, a tree is planted for you in origin, and the trees of agenda the prophets of Allah Salam said that a traveler or like someone would be riding his animal for a journey of such and such, and he's still under the shade of one tree. That's the size of these trees. So but I'm arrested I'm sent this this gift, say subhanallah 100 Allah but Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah see them in any order. And for each one, a tree is planted for you in agenda. And you can say 1000s throughout your day. That was a gift that was sent to us by Ibrahim Ali set up. And that's why we love Ibrahim and this is one of the

00:40:43 --> 00:41:29

reasons why, besides his connection to us through our prophets of Allah Salam besides what he has done for tau heyde, besides his place, being the Helene of Allah azza wa jal all that from this point on what what do we have left what do we have left is that the prophets are Salam is going to keep ascending until Gibran can go any higher and the problem continues by himself, he will see cidre and moonta the furthest most log tree, he will speak to Allah subhanaw taala. And Allah azza wa jal will legislate the Salah, and then there'll be the pro Salam will ask for a reduction in the prayers. And then he comes back to bait and muck this gets on the Buraq goes all the way back to

00:41:29 --> 00:41:44

Mecca. And the narration says his bed was still warm. He gets to his bed on it's still warm. Then the next morning, he's looking a little vexed. And of all people are bhujette comes to him and says there anything happened last night.

00:41:45 --> 00:41:49

And I'll tell you this is like such a such an amazing narration.

00:41:50 --> 00:42:08

He says that anything happened last night, just if you want to see how amazing the problem was, put your place and put yourself in his place. Now, you just went on this amazing journey. And to now it's morning. And your job is to tell everyone what happened. Who would you start with?

00:42:10 --> 00:42:11

I would start with a buck.

00:42:12 --> 00:42:30

And I would start with the other companions that have strong Eman and been there for a while. And then they would be believing me and nodding as I'm explaining it to the newer Muslims and the weaker people. And if I may call you if I were sitting there and I will John came to me said that editing happened last night. But no, we're good.

00:42:32 --> 00:42:32


00:42:34 --> 00:43:16

And why would I start with you of all people. But look at the degree of honesty of the prophets are sullen. And the level to which he took an A blood result of literacy rissalah Seriously conveying the message so seriously, that the first guy who asked was Abu Jen and the bra Salam told him, and then there was a some there were some moments of chaos, which we'll discuss. And then the President had two very powerful ways of proving that this journey actually happened. And that he was at like, two extremely powerful methods, and they both work. But then the Kure still refuse to believe so we mentioned a number of things we mentioned last time, that before the journey the Prophet sallallahu

00:43:16 --> 00:43:55

Sallam Jabril came to him, and he opened his chest and he washed his heart actually nourish and say filled it with a man and wisdom and put it back. And we said this is the second time the heart of the problem is washed. By the way, it's just as an interesting note. So we mentioned there two times, but there are some scholars who said it was even four times and there's some scholars who said the process was heart was washed three times. And if you want all the four, they say one when he was five years old, right? When he was five years old. He was with Benny,

00:43:56 --> 00:44:42

when he said very good. And he was with his foster mother Halima, we refer to her Halima Assadi Assadi image from Vanessa from that tribe, but her name was Halima been to IB do aim. So when he was five, that was the first one then they mentioned and the evidence isn't strong for it. Some scholars said when he was 10 years old, it happened again, other say when he was 40 Right before the third one now, right before being sent as a prophet. But these two and he there is some doubt about those two, like as far as the evidence is not authentic and strong. The fourth one is the one that we mentioned before they started Maddock. But I didn't want to bring a few questions. The first one is,

00:44:43 --> 00:44:59

couldn't Allah subhanaw taala or Jibreel it salaam fill the heart of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with iman and wisdom without opening his chest. Taking it out while he sees all that it could

00:45:00 --> 00:45:10

have been right. So why open his heart that way? Why let him see all of this? Now, obviously, he didn't experience any pain, right, obviously.

00:45:11 --> 00:45:53

So I found something interesting from the scholars, they said that, or I believe it was even hotter rahamallah. Specifically, he said that this is going to be this is an indication that the things that are going to happen on this journey are all going to be out of the ordinary, and you're not going to ever be in danger, or you're not going to be hurt, and therefore, there's never a reason to be afraid, you understand. So the night starts off strange and out of the ordinary where his justice taken out, and he doesn't feel any pain, and he obviously doesn't die, and then it's put back so he sees something like this. So he knows he's, since he was safe with this. Let's call it operational

00:45:53 --> 00:46:21

procedure. He's going to be saved for the rest of the night. And that's why when the Buraq, you know, jumps these fast distances, he's not scared, he's knows he's in good hands. He's not going to be injured, he's not gonna fall and get hurt. That is part of the lesson that he will get from that happening right in front of him. So that's one thing. The other thing is, the scholars also discussed why did Jabril come with a writing animal? Why did he bring the Buraq why didn't they just

00:46:23 --> 00:47:02

what's the word when you just are transformed? Huh? Teleport duck Look, why did they just teleport tbaytel McCullough's or widen the like the earth fold right in front of them. And then the President stepped in it unfolded knees at bathe and McAleese. And the scholars mentioned that there is a honor when you if you bring someone important a guest, you send them a vehicle, you send them someone to bring them. And so the pasta alum, there was an animal that was going to take him to so it was as if I sent you a limo, I sent you a car. So it's not just come to me, but I also sent you a vehicle. Then

00:47:04 --> 00:47:06

the other thing is that

00:47:08 --> 00:47:55

we mentioned last week, we're kind of going through the gist of the story. And every time Jabril salaam knocked on the door, or over the Gates, who are the heavens, the angel would ask Who is it? And he would say Mohammed, then you would say, is anyone with you? So and some of the scholars commented that the angel sense that someone was with Jabril and then he would say, Mohamed, then he would say, has he been sent? Any has he been sent? Or it's as if you can add between, you know, brackets, has he been sent for so that every every time in the gates they asked has it been sent? Or has it been sent for? So you might think and he has he been sent as a messenger or cilia and he and

00:47:55 --> 00:48:40

the rissalah like he became a prophet has he become a prophet yet? And you would imagine that the angels in the heavens with no when the process was sent for and became a prophet of Allah azza wa jal. So there are three things here concerning that. The first is that has he been sent eonni for to ascend up to the heavens. Which brings to the third point, that from honoring the prophets of Allah, Allah salaam, all the angels knew that he was going to come visit the heavens. But as if they didn't know that he was already sent for. So when they when they when the Prophet lamp wonderbread knocked, he would say they would say I've been sent for Yanni. He's been sent to come up to to where the

00:48:40 --> 00:49:19

visit for the journey. So they meant didn't mean as a prophet, but they meant as to come up to the heavens. Then others said that it is Todd Juba, he, they were amazed that Oh, has it been sent already, like, we didn't know that he was with you. And then as I said, the third one is that they, they knew he was coming, but they just didn't know it was that time. That's just in case you're reading on your, by your own on your own. And then you see that has he been sent to what does that mean? They didn't know that he was a prophet is has been sent as a prophet some years ago. Like we're like, a year or so before the hijra, and the angels in the heavens still don't know the

00:49:19 --> 00:50:00

proposal and was sent to humanity. But that's not what it meant. Allah Allah. The last question or thing to discuss. Why did the Prophet salallahu Salam ascend from Baitul? Methodists? Why not ascend from piano to the heavens? Why did he go to Bethel, Methodist, and then a sent from beta Nautilus to the heavens like why not is sent from the Kaaba to the heavens. So the scholars did mention that first of all beta mock this besides being a site that was visited by all the prophets of Allah azza wa jal, it's also a place that is the has significance to a sighted Salaam and to Eber

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

My name is salam to all the prophets. But also the Kaaba at that point, was not the Kaaba that we venerate today. It was loaded with 360 idols inside and idols outside and there was shipwreck. And by the way, where was the Qibla at this point?

00:50:20 --> 00:51:07

Better most of this still right? So you see why basil McCullers had its its place, and the camera still obviously had its place. But and on top of that, another point, the profits are going to meet and pray behind the prophets, Allah Allah is Hello. Do you see that being appropriate and Kaaba? Yeah, with its idols with you know, people all over the place like it is not as a secluded guest in a for lack of a better term back then location as a Bethel miraculous would have been. And it was just some interesting thoughts. But basically, then, the second thing is we we went through last time, the prophets, Allah Salam ascending from one heaven to the next, and then he would meet

00:51:07 --> 00:51:57

different prophets at different levels of these heavens. And the scholars said that there isn't a significance for or reason or wisdom behind why ASA and yeah Halima salaam were in the second heaven, and why use of Allison was in the third and why Idris was in the fourth. Like, is there a significance as to why these prophets and Why wasn't she there? Why was it not there? He's one of the five greatest profits. Why wasn't pick anyone ash? Automedia Ramaiah? You know, the other profits, right? So the Hydra himolla tried to come up with some, some possible wisdoms. He says, The Mighty salary with each one of the prophets that he met, there was something relevant to the life

00:51:57 --> 00:52:44

and the story of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said Adam Alayhis Salam was sent out of a magnificent place and a place that was very beloved and dear to his heart. He was sent out of a Jana. And, of course, later on, he will return to it. And the Prophet sallallahu sallam was sent out of a city that was very beloved to him. And that was Myka and he returned to it victorious. He said that ASA and yeah, I did set up I didn't even salaam both of them were harmed by their people, or the people around them specifically mentioned the Jews. They they harmed them and attempted to kill a Saudi Salaam and succeeded in killing. Yeah, Haley, Sarah, same thing with the prophets of Allah

00:52:44 --> 00:53:31

Salam. When he moved to Medina, he was harmed by the Jews of Medina. And they attempted to kill him and the lady at the end. When they conquered at the end, the lady was able to put the poison into the meat. Then he mentioned that use of it Saddam, he was betrayed by his brothers or like his family. And what Allah subhanaw taala gave him the upper hand. What did he do? He forgave them. And the same way it's like the family of the prophets are selling meaning his kinsmen let him down and set him out. And then later on he got powered conquered McCann came back, but yet he just forgave them how to an Ali Salam. If you know the story of Musa and her own ARIA Hema salaam, you will know

00:53:31 --> 00:54:16

that when it's right in, they loved her own eyes and very much me loved her own a lot. And Musa was a little like stern and kind of a little harder on them. But they had they always would go too hard on it, Sarah. So, he was loved by his people and in the same way Muhammad wa sallam was very much loved by his followers, the believers. Then he mentioned most artists that um, and his his significance being there he is a prophet who has suffered a lot from his people has both those who believed in him and those who didn't believe in Him. And in the story of Musa is a lot of there are a lot of messages for the prophets, Allah salah, and that explains also why Allah azza wa jal

00:54:16 --> 00:54:25

mentions a story of Musa and the name Musa 136 times in the Quran. So there's a lot of mention there. Then

00:54:26 --> 00:54:50

Ibrahim Ali Salam, of course, he is the one who raised the foundation of Aqaba, he's the one who purified the house and he's the one who like you know, hedge the story of hedge everything has his origins with him. So it's understandable why Ibrahim alayhis salam was there. So I believe we ended with we the last thing we spoke about was a beta Marmore which we said was the we spoke about it right?

00:54:52 --> 00:54:59

Right. Okay. So what was the capital of the heavens and we said the prophets of Allah Salah mentioned

00:55:00 --> 00:55:41

And that every day 70,000 Angels will visit this house in the heavens, and it will be their first and their last visit, they will never come to it again. And every day 70,000 will come. And so this week, one day 70,000 visited and Tuesday and Wednesday, just this week how many angels visited Alberta my more or as we said last time since the prophets Allah Salam spoke and told us about this and it's been going on for Allah knows how long since the President told us about it until today, how many angels have visited think we give a number was like 376 billion or something like that, right? Anyways, so

00:55:43 --> 00:56:00

I didn't do we mentioned the visit the meeting with Ibrahim Ali Salam Yeah, I remember saying that he said, Welcome, righteous son, righteous Prophet, whereas all the other prophets said, Welcome, righteous brother, righteous prophet. And then Abraham, I just have them sent us a gift. Anyone remember?

00:56:01 --> 00:56:22

Well, the really two gifts. One he sent us a Salah. And he's the only one who did that. He said, Metallica minister, gave you almost salam from me. And then let them know that Jana has very fertile soil. One narration says not enough trees, Danny, he's going to now give us a tip so we can plant trees. What is it?

00:56:24 --> 00:57:05

Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. And every time you say each one of a tree is planted for you in an agenda and your policy and agenda. And the process I mentioned in the Hadith, that the trees of agenda are so huge that you will travel for a long distance and you still under the shade of one tree. So right now, as you're sitting here, you can be just planting trees, you can plant easily 2000 trees before you get up from here before we're done in sha Allah. So you can be listening and planting. People ask me what do you do for a living? I'm a doctor, but I'm also a farmer. What do you do? I plant trees. What kind? Not sure.

00:57:07 --> 00:57:10

But I'll see them once in sha Allah.

00:57:12 --> 00:57:12

Can I visit you?

00:57:14 --> 00:57:15

You have to do something before you.

00:57:18 --> 00:57:20

All right, wonderful.

00:57:21 --> 00:58:19

So then, then, a Nabi SallAllahu sallam, he got to what is known as or he after meeting with Ibrahim Al Salam, they ascended kept climbing higher. One narration mentioned that he, the prophet Gibreel stopped the process and looked at debris. And we said Gibreel is shady don't call the most powerful of the angels, the leader of the angels though mirror powerful and he looked like he was about to collapse upon himself. And he says, I cannot take one more step. He said, If I take one more step, I will burn up. So the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam went beyond where even Gibreel Ali Salam could go, and he continued, until he saw what is known as Sirat al moonta The furthest most trees are

00:58:19 --> 00:59:13

locked tree as we translate it. And the Rossum describes it the tree and it wasn't really that beautiful it he described that it had large leaves that look like the ears of elephants he said it looked like the ears of elephants and he had its fruits look like they were clay jugs, you know the clay jars and basically is describing something very earth tone nothing so special. And then some of the light of Allah some of the light of Allah touched his tree and the tree completely transformed. And the process of him said its colors became indescribable But what's amazing is that the prophets a lot of alum had of the most eloquent tongues and when he says I couldn't even describe the colors

00:59:14 --> 00:59:50

one nurse and says it's like I didn't it didn't know the colors is like new colors. Okay, how do you describe a new color right? And one nourishing mentioned is gold butterflies appeared then start fluttering around it. So it became so beautiful transformed, and that's just from some of the light of Allah touching history. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam advanced and this is where he spoke to Allah subhana wa Tada. And Allah azza wa jal commanded the prayer and he was commanded

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

for himself and for us that we will pray 50 times within the within the night and day and in our day would have 50 prayers.

01:00:00 --> 01:00:07

So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam comes back down and he meets Musa he stood up, he speaks to Musa alayhis, Salam.

01:00:08 --> 01:00:17

And moosari Salam asks him, what has your LORD commanded from you? All right? Oh, by the way, I forgot

01:00:19 --> 01:00:54

what when citizen will die there's a narration that says Gibreel He asked you briefly about the train, he told him this is cidre automata which means that he got with Drew Brees to this level and then he advanced beyond it by himself. And Gibreel told him that this is the furthest most lock tree and that there are four rivers running beneath it. Two Rivers that are hidden and from meaning from the rivers of El Jana and then two from the rivers of the dunya and the porcelain specifically mentioned the Nile and the Euphrates River a Neil will forgot

01:00:58 --> 01:00:59

and Jani

01:01:01 --> 01:01:05

any any signal Well, anything significant about those two of the Nile and the fraud

01:01:07 --> 01:01:11

the one of the nails the greater one magical thinking.

01:01:13 --> 01:01:15

But yeah, I mean, longest

01:01:16 --> 01:01:33

longest river in the world and all the life and the civilization that comes around these two different obviously is in a very important area is sin at ox and Ibrahim Ali Salaam and all these prophets. But

01:01:35 --> 01:02:15

but the point is that yeah, so the question actually is why is it that when the Prophet SAW Selim came back down, the discussion was between him and Musa today's setup. So most artists have them ask them what did your LORD commanded you? And he said he commanded me 50 prayers within the day and night. So most are Salam advises go back and asked her Lord to decrease I asked Peninsula II for less than that and they weren't able to do so. Okay, so this calmness said possibly why didn't he go back to Ibrahim and his salah they said there's some things about most artists that um, first of all, he was a Kaleem of Allah, he spoke to Allah. And when Allah spoke to him,

01:02:17 --> 01:03:01

he gave him commandments. So Musa is already familiar with that when Allah speaks to you, it's not Janet. Just ask how you're doing. When Allah speaks to you, gives you commandments, right? Fabu new Alchemist Salah decree Allah said to Musa salah, so he knows that he's going to get commandments. That's number one. Number two, the scholars mentioned that most artists Salam got the largest from all the other prophets the largest volume or amount of Revelation. And more than O'Brien Melissa and then they said he owned he was the leader of the second largest OMA ever the largest OMA ever on the Day of Judgment will be our own mother Omar Mohamed salah, Salah, but the second largest will be

01:03:01 --> 01:03:21

that of Musashi setup. So he is someone who has experience with commandments and passing them on to large numbers of people and then see the seeing the feedback and reaction of these people. Are they going to take to it take well or any act upon it? Are they going to resist? So he was in a better place to advise then Ibrahim Ali Salam,

01:03:23 --> 01:03:49

O Allah, Allah, then so the prophets of salaam goes back and ask for a decrease. The Scholars say, when the Prophet Salam goes back to Allah to ask, does he go back to the same high point and it leaves Jabril behind and does he speak to Allah azza wa jal? Or does he just turn to the side and make dua or ask Allah subhanaw taala? To decrease? Does Allah subhanaw taala respond through?

01:03:50 --> 01:04:34

Like steroid and wish intermediate and without a gem or interpreter? Or someone who conveys the message? Or does he speak directly to Allah? The narrations don't say, the iterations don't say, because the whole point is really here about the Salah of porcelain was already honored by becoming a Kaleem of Allah that Allah spoke to him. And now the ideas about the Salah. So whether he turned or moved slightly to the side and made dua to Allah azza wa jal Gibreel informed him we don't know. So the first time the porcelain goes back, and the Salawat are decreased by 10. So they become 40. So he comes back and moosari Salam prosom is narrating Musa asked me what did your Lord decree he

01:04:34 --> 01:04:59

said, there are 40 Salah he said Ask the Lord to decrease go back and ask Allah to decrease I asked when Israel for less than that and they weren't able to. So then he goes back so Allah Salah for the second time 10 are knocked off. So now it's 30. Then he tells him the same thing and the problem says and then he says the same thing to me. So he went back and asked Allah subhanaw taala to decrease. So now 10 Another 10 were taken off

01:05:00 --> 01:05:35

So now it's 20 Salawat, then Musala Salam says the same thing, then the porcelain goes back, and 10 are taken off. So now they're 10. This was the fourth return. And then Musa Salam says the same thing and the porcelain goes back and five are taken off. So now how many remain? Five? So he goes back when Musallam asked him, and he says there are five and moves, RSM says go back and ask your Lord to decrease I asked Vanessa eel for less than that and they couldn't do it. Can you imagine that?

01:05:36 --> 01:05:56

He went, when you see the when you read the story of Musa salaam with Bani Israel and just every corner, they give him a hard time, every corner they disobey, or they cut corners, or it's just unbelievable. So they couldn't even do less than five. So the prophets of Allah has said num said

01:05:58 --> 01:06:38

on a sewer system and so the problem here says that he felt ashamed for how many times from how many times he went back to Allah Azza says like I've just feel a shame from how many times I went back to Allah PATA unlike how many times could you and we're not even comparing to Allah no one is comparable to Allah azza wa jal but if someone does you a favor look out or no judge or some governor or something and you go to his office and they do something for you. And you knock on his door come back and say you know, something? I'm sorry, I changed my mind. Do you mind changing it to this like Sure, absolutely. No problem. Then you go near? I'm sorry, nuts. Um, so just one more

01:06:39 --> 01:06:41

then third time now.

01:06:42 --> 01:07:28

So sorry, okay. Yeah, this is a human being when it doesn't matter, either. We don't compare Allah tool to his creation. But this is a human being and you how many times could you knock on someone's door without feeling bad? Even if they're not important? You'd be like, I'm so sorry, Allah. You know. So the Prophet Selim says, that I have felt bad from how many times I kept going back to my Lord. And when the porcelain said that a color called out nerdom when I didn't hear any someone called out, oh Muhammad, they are five in execution in add up, you do them you an execution, there are five, but 50 in reward, so multiplied by 10.

01:07:29 --> 01:08:17

Then the Prophet SAW Salem goes, descends down to beta and muffle this, if you take the other narration. We mentioned this in the beginning that he led the prophets in prayer than ascended up to the heavens, or he ascended up to the heavens come back, came back, lead the prophets and prayer and then wrote on the Buraq, and came back so in this narration, then Prosser lamp, got on the Burrup and started returning back to Mecca. There is a narration that mentions on the way back he saw a caravan that was on their way to Mecca, and they had lost a camel of theirs. And he yelled out to them that your camel is in such in such a place by and we said this could be explained by what we

01:08:17 --> 01:08:49

mentioned last time how the Baroque moved that he jumped from where he was until as far as his eyes could see or the end of the horizon. So the scholars who mentioned this, or the Bashar who explained it this way, they said while he's in the jump, he saw from his vantage point where the last animal was or where the last camel was, and yelled out to them. That your camel is in such in such an area. And there's also a narration that says they know that they recognized his voice in the city it sounds like

01:08:50 --> 01:09:16

and the Muhammad from Mecca of Allah Azza. Anyways, this narration mentioned that when he landed near their, like their campsite, and he drank a little bit from a container that had water and put it back and then he continued and made it back to Mecca. And one narration says he made it back to his bed while his bed was still warm.

01:09:18 --> 01:09:20

When your bed is still warm, that means

01:09:21 --> 01:09:32

you haven't been gone for long, right? We woke up at night you get out of bed, do something come back, it's still warm. That means you aren't gone for long. Okay, by the way, just an interesting point.

01:09:35 --> 01:09:59

If you're if you're in a desert, and you find water, and it belongs to someone, you're allowed to drink from it. So there's just a filter issue. There's there's no ownership to water, so you could drink from it. And I had I had a relative who almost died of thirst in the desert. And they were like all ran out of water and then they found a huge

01:10:00 --> 01:10:35

container that was covered. And it was known that it was this was someone else's water, and two of them drank. And then one said, No, I'm not gonna drink until I get permission. And the owner was far said, I waited until I got there. And then I asked him and says yes, then I went back and drank. But and that's why the more you know, the easier life becomes like he could drink from it. And the owner wouldn't even have the right to say, now it's my water. You can you can die. I don't feel like sharing today. Oh, lemme allocate for hashtag Tom monka.

01:10:37 --> 01:10:38

All right.

01:10:39 --> 01:10:43

Bye. So the prostate lamb in the morning he.

01:10:44 --> 01:10:49

He was at the Kaaba, and of all people.

01:10:51 --> 01:11:32

Yeah, yeah. Got south or Baptist ahead. So of all people, Abuja who came to him, and he the problem there, he said himself, he said he was looking. And he was worried and had the oldest concern and anxiety and he had a perplexed look on his face. And epogen of all people came to him. And he said that anything happened? Because he could see the look on his face. And this is what I was saying last time that and the problem when you put yourself in his place, you think, no, I wouldn't, I wouldn't do the same thing for Salem was different, like a whole people. If you had to tell people of this journey that's hard to believe and all the miraculous things that happened. I would start

01:11:32 --> 01:11:34

with a book. I would start with a book.

01:11:35 --> 01:12:01

And then I will tell I have never thought that when I told you know, my wife and I will tell all the believers that the ones that are most going to accept and believe in what happened, and then we start to let it trickle out. But the first guy who came was the worst guy, who was Abuja Volpe. He came in he said, Did anything happen? And the problem said, Yes. He said, What happened? He said last night, I went to bed and McAleese and I came back.

01:12:03 --> 01:12:21

And I would have just said, and now nothing is fine. So it's alright. Don't worry about it. Because I don't want him to I don't want to start with him. I'll let him know later. Tomorrow, but not right, not the first guy. So he kept like, a straight face. He said,

01:12:23 --> 01:12:36

Yeah, he first he said, How can a man say that anything happened, he said are ATIA in doubt or comarca, elated to have his own Bhima had destiny, or to have data on him or her destiny? The narration says right to endow to Colemak

01:12:37 --> 01:13:20

to Hadith own with Rick, if I call your people, would you tell them what you just told me? And the President said yes. And for the first time in their history, he started to call everyone to listen to the prophets a lesson. And it is to hire girls to walk and follow the process love and sing and drown out his voice. So nobody hears it. They brought another Bill Harris all the way from a thought if to just come and follow the bra Salem. And then when he starts preaching, he starts telling stories just to get the crowd away. And now for the first time ever, they're calling so he starts to call he said Jamar Shut up. But when he kind of knew he, he starts to call them all and they

01:13:20 --> 01:13:40

gathered. And the Prophet Sallam told he said, Tell them what you just told me. And Paul Sullivan said last night, I want to bait and muck this and I returned in the same night. So a journey that takes them one one's going and one was coming for sale and what in the same night and came back.

01:13:42 --> 01:13:45

And the narrative says so people were between

01:13:46 --> 01:13:49

put their reactions, putting their hands on their head

01:13:51 --> 01:14:19

and clapping their hands or clapping in disbelief. This is a cultural thing. I always like to ask people what does that look like? clapping in disbelief. So I think Arabs know what that means. Right? Well, yeah. clapping in disbelief. But when I ask people to start doing this, like there's not that doesn't look like this belief. Looks like you're stuck. You're starting and applause for someone like in the movies, but it's like this

01:14:21 --> 01:14:25

a lot. Somebody tells you a huge lie like law law.

01:14:26 --> 01:14:31

Guys such a liar like that, you know. So,

01:14:32 --> 01:14:34

and then some,

01:14:35 --> 01:14:58

some left, some left Islam. This this narration of earlier today, the people apostatized thing is mentioned by Al Hakim in his book elminster The rocky he actually mentions it that some people actually left Islam, you know, the newer Muslims the they actually left. Okay, and the Imam of that he says that the narration is authentic or he he authenticated the narration

01:15:00 --> 01:15:43

So a number of things we were talking about until today. There's some people who have issues with this story in particular they saw in marriage until today. And it was, it seems like for all times, it will be the the measure, or the I guess the, the criterion is between the believer and the one who just doesn't want to believe that until this day, you will find people saying that, Oh, it doesn't make sense. Or I'll hook in someone, you know, cover these huge distances and all that. Remember that story I told I said last week about the guy who was saying, if the moon split, what would happen to the gravitational pull in all these things? All these laws of physics that he's

01:15:43 --> 01:15:51

quoting who created these laws? Allah subhanaw taala, who can cancel them or put them on pause? What's the problem? So

01:15:52 --> 01:16:36

but until today, but if you look at the hang of the Quran, and you you look at the miracles of all the prophets, they're not designed to be things that are just normal and ordinary that anyone can, can do or perform. There. That's why exactly what I'm what that means. As much as desolate margins is not even a very strong word, the margins are from from a new era, Giselle in San Juan, you're not capable of doing something. So it's something beyond the ordinary that you would be incapable of doing. And that's what AI is even a stronger word. But the point is that, if if you look at Musa alayhis salam when he split the Red Sea, Allah says Vaccarino, Kulu, Philippine cook both of them,

01:16:36 --> 01:17:15

can you imagine that? That when Musa pointed to the Red Sea, it's split open? And how deep is the Red Sea? I don't know. But it's deep. And it opened up all the way to the bed of the bottom of the sea bed. And where did the water go? It was like a mountain. They had two mountains on the side, like a mountain of water as high as your eye could see on this side and this side, and then the ground was wet, not even muddy, and they could walk on it. And how would you like, what would that look like visually, like you're walking on the seabed, and there's a mountain of water this way it parted and the other one part of the other way, and looks like it and you touch it as water, but

01:17:15 --> 01:17:50

it's staying put. And now is that normal? So Allah subhanaw taala does things beyond the ordinary. And that's why when people say oh, the moon can't split and how can the moon split? And then we put it back to and nothing happened and nothing when disrupted and and how come the world didn't see the moon split? By? Let me ask you this. If I told you yesterday, at 9:36pm The moon actually split like this for 10 seconds and came back together. There were 200 people in the room. How many of you would have seen it yesterday?

01:17:51 --> 01:18:11

Don't put your hand up? Because that would mean if you would have said that I would have seen it. That means yesterday at 936 You were staring up at the moon killer. Even if you're outside having a conversation with someone, the moon would split for 20 seconds come back you wouldn't even know unless your conversation was about the moon. So like how many people would see it? Anyways?

01:18:12 --> 01:18:15

The point is that you don't when you when you google

01:18:16 --> 01:18:18

you know is there a crack on the moon?

01:18:19 --> 01:18:29

You will just you will find video after video made by Muslims about how the when the astronauts landed they saw a huge crack only shot of it.

01:18:30 --> 01:18:48

So many videos on YouTube and so many websites. So oh yes, there is a crack on the moon. One of our mother of instructors actually called NASA and and a lot of you guys some of you work for NASA Siddiq. He called NASA and said hey, did you guys ever find the crack on the moon? He said no.

01:18:51 --> 01:18:56

You guys know the joke, right? You said no all the crime that all the crack is in the Bronx.

01:18:58 --> 01:18:59

There's no crack on them.

01:19:03 --> 01:19:05

All right, or Detroit or whatever you want.

01:19:07 --> 01:19:09

But the point is that

01:19:10 --> 01:19:10

at the

01:19:12 --> 01:19:12

end of the blade,

01:19:14 --> 01:19:15

there are things out of the ordinary.

01:19:16 --> 01:19:28

If you want to come and do calculations and physics is stuck, it's not going to work out. And as you if it did work out, it wouldn't be something miraculous that only a genuine prophet of Allah could do.

01:19:29 --> 01:19:30

Moving on.

01:19:31 --> 01:20:00

So then some of the people in the court of the Quraysh they had been tbaytel McKinnis. So they said some of us and they knew that the Prophet sallallahu Salah had never traveled to it and McInnes, so that he said, some of us have seen better marketers, so describe it to us. So the problem. He described what he saw, he went at night. It wasn't a tour of the architecture of Bethel Methodist. He went in, led the prayer and

01:20:00 --> 01:20:11

and ascended from that point then he came down, according to the other nerds and didn't even go inside, gone the Baroque and wrote back, like, how much would he notice its architecture? So he described it, roughly.

01:20:12 --> 01:20:32

There's some of you have been praying here. Let's since this area has been built, how many windows are in here? Don't count them. Now. How many windows how many lights? It's not fair to ask you that. Even if you've been bringing in for three years, it's not fair to tell you how many light bulbs they have recount them, how many fans like

01:20:33 --> 01:20:43

how many windows how many arches over the windows, it's not fair. So they started to ask the prophets, Allah salah, about details that even the architect forgot.

01:20:44 --> 01:21:04

It's not fair, but they're not trying to be fair, they're just trying to stump him and prove he is a liar in front of the audience in front of people and, and embarrass him. So the problem is that I was taken with so much worry and concern. He says, Then I looked up, and Allah brought the image of beta McCobb is right in front of me.

01:21:05 --> 01:21:14

And I in my mind, now I imagine it just like the image is floating in front of you. And you could like zoom in, pinch out, turn it, flip it.

01:21:15 --> 01:21:35

And he said, I could see it right in front of me. So these start to ask for ridiculous details and he answered it because he could see it so Allah Salam just like that and without a single mistake to the point that the said, Amma not a naughty and it was a minute fucka do Allah hit us up.

01:21:36 --> 01:21:42

As for the description of law, he got it accurate with they still wouldn't believe.

01:21:43 --> 01:21:48

So someone ran and got and told abou book.

01:21:50 --> 01:22:32

So this is one of those greatest moments in the history of the planet. Someone ran and told Abu Bakr and said you should see Mohammed is saying that he went to Bethel Michael this last night, and he woke up amongst us this morning. And the first answer of Abu Bakr was, if he has said that, because he doesn't he needs to verify this know if this person is speaking the truth or not. So if he has said that, then he has spoken the truth. Well Allah Allah in Karnataka Allah who caught out puppets, locket, Sadhak, if he said that he has spoken the truth. So the man said, how can you believe something like that? How can you believe you go to bed and McConnell said, come back and takes us a

01:22:32 --> 01:23:13

month, two months going and coming? And look, I will work really low on who he wasn't just a civility. And he said that they just believed everything. He didn't like to argue he was non confrontational. And sometimes some authors, they don't analyze his personality properly, and they make it look like he's just timid fellow who just saw Doctor I believe everything. He believed because he was smart. And that's why the companion said Abu Bakr was the smartest one and who the most intelligent one amongst us. So when he the man says, How can you believe something like that? Look at this logic. He said, I believe him in something greater than that. In news that comes

01:23:13 --> 01:23:45

instantly from the heavens, and I'm, I believe that he's a prophet of Allah, you breed comes to him. Sometimes we're sitting with him, we ask him a question. He's deep, he stays quiet. Then he says, Jabril just told me, where did you come from? He brought a message from Allah azza wa jal, he came down in mere moment. He said, I believe in something greater than that news coming from the heavens in an instant. that's greater than a journey within the earth in a short period of time. So he went to the Prophet supposedly, and I'd like you to imagine this, how

01:23:47 --> 01:24:25

it's not just, I don't Allah on me, but I just I don't imagine that it's just a believer supporting his prophet, but also a best friend supporting his best friend, that you can if you imagine that the Prophet SAW Selim his city, and the people are gathered, and by the way, the other Our reaction was some people laughing. So you can see it, we're still happy, still calling people keep, you know, keep pushing it like you see, can you believe this, Matt? And some people are laughing, and some people clapping their hands in disbelief and others. I'm not doing I'm not following this man anymore. I'm not believing in this religion. And

01:24:26 --> 01:24:49

a whole bucket comes where the parcel is sitting amongst his masters in this commotion. And he goes, You're awful. Did you go to bed and lock this last night? And you woke up amongst us this morning? And the porcelain said, Yes, everyone's waiting because this is best friend. And everyone's waiting to hear to see the reaction of a rulebook.

01:24:50 --> 01:24:54

And I will book her tells him out loud in front of everyone, so duck,

01:24:56 --> 01:24:59

and the problem tells him what antiA Abba buck.

01:25:00 --> 01:25:04

subject, a new Abu Bakr, her acidic.

01:25:06 --> 01:25:19

Other narration said that the problem would ask him and he as he would explain, he would say so booked a shadow in Nikka Rasulullah Sadat, I bear witness that you're the Messenger of Allah and then the Prophet I'm told him

01:25:21 --> 01:25:32

why don't you have a crystal deck and you will work for us to do and from that day he became known as Abu Bakr, acidic, the truthful and he because he believed His Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam

01:25:34 --> 01:25:46

there, there is a narration going back to the caravan on the way back a Prophet that he said that he saw he said let there be a deciding point between me and you. And that is

01:25:47 --> 01:26:15

there is a caravan on its way here. The lead camel they used to adorn on they had a lead camel, they used to adorn Yanni decorate the lead camel in different ways. So he said the lead camel is dressed in adorned in specific way with this colors with this kind of you know, and then they lost a camel in an area and I called out to them that your camel is in the area of such and such. And they had a container of water that was covered. I drank from it and I covered it back.

01:26:17 --> 01:26:21

They said okay, that will that will tell it that will tell us if you're speaking the truth.

01:26:22 --> 01:26:49

What is how far away are they and based on the distance where the porcelain saw them, you can estimate they're like a day and a half to half a day away. He said they'll be here on the day of such and such. And they said okay, that will be a deciding factor. Because there's no way he could have at night gone to this caravan that was a day or a day and a half or half a day away and come back half a day and still wake up there. And there's no way he would know something like that.

01:26:50 --> 01:27:36

So the next day, or the day of they were all out in the morning, early, awaiting. And then sure enough, the from the horizon, they see a caravan approaching. When they got closer, the lead camel is adorned and decorated the same way the Prophet SAW Selim described. And these are not Muslims who were out on a journey. They were non Muslims pagans. So when they when they finally arrived, they said, Did you guys lose a caravan? On the night of such and such now? Sorry, did you guys lose a camel duck? On the night of such and such? They said yes. And Did someone call out to you and tell you where it is? They said yes. Did you have a container of water that someone drank from the city?

01:27:36 --> 01:27:43

Yes, we came back and it was had less water than before. And they still wouldn't believe the prophets of Allah Hudson.

01:27:44 --> 01:28:11

Because their point wasn't they were just trying to prove these a liar. They weren't trying to prove to themselves or find evidence that he's a genuine Prophet, so they can follow him. They're just trying to prove Bayes Allah. Even when they asked for miracles, they were trying to stump the prophets awesome. They weren't trying to say prove to me that you you're a genuine Prophet, do something out of the ordinary, I believe in you. They're just challenging him just to ridicule him in front of people. Salallahu Salam.

01:28:12 --> 01:28:39

So as I said, like, there are many ways, especially with the Sierra, you know, the Sierra, is very deep. And there are many different angles through which you can study the setup. And there are many different angles through which you can see the exact same story. And I used to do this, I used to, you know, teach even before for a motive Institute before they teach a Syrah for this other institute. And,

01:28:40 --> 01:28:59

and it was interesting how we would tell the story and say, Okay, what lessons and benefits do you see from the story. And we would have so many different so much different input because everyone comes from a different background from a different personalities, different discipline.

01:29:01 --> 01:29:43

And he there was someone who gave a lecture on geology from the Syrah an hour long lecture on geology from the Sierra, I don't even know how, okay, he's a geologist. So when he hears that on the way back from Kabuki, they saw a washer, which is a rock that has water coming out of it, or when we deceided describe this description of the Herat of Medina is volcanic rock so he can understand so much about the terrain. There was a sister who was writing a book on the counseling methods of the prophets, Allah loves him, she was a counselor, you know, so you can see the same story from a different angle. And, and I used to when I used to teach this class, I used to be able to tell

01:29:43 --> 01:29:59

people their profession and just from what they see in the story, like someone would say, I see this and this or are you are you an educator? Do you teach? Yes, I actually am a teacher. Someone say I saw this. Do you work in sales or something like that? Yes, actually, I do work and so like, that's how deep the CETA is that everyone can look at it from a different angle.

01:30:00 --> 01:30:50

He can just keep piling and piling the gems from the syrup. But I did want to focus on the idea that the miss the salon Mirage journey happened in Bali and in spirit, that it was not a dream. And there is a lock in the story that says, This happened in body and in spirit and not a dream. So that's my focus. Because we're also kind of every time we deal with the story, we're dealing with people who say, Well, this is not possible. And this could not happen. And this is according to physics. This is not, you know, so we're talking to those people specifically. So from all the possible angles, I wanted to take this angle, and say, an argue that the strat and Mirage journey happened in body and

01:30:50 --> 01:31:41

in spirit, it was not just a dream. And it was not the spirit of the porcelain in the dream having these experiences. The first thing is, when we look at the verses that we began with last time, and certainly Surah Subhan, Allah the as Surat, br the D, the scholars said, When can you refer to someone as a ABD? And when do you refer them? If it just happened in spirit? Would that spirit be called the abbot of Allah, the worshipper of Allah? I'm Deena an interesting point. So the word that happened in Arabic means worshiper, and it also means like servant or slave. And so, when Allah subhanaw taala refers to the Prophet SAW Selim as his Abbot. He means in, in the sense as that he's

01:31:41 --> 01:32:16

his worshiper. Why? Because the highest level you can attain is to become a worshipper of Allah azza wa jal, and it would not have much value for Allah azza wa jal to refer to the Prophet Salam as his slave here, just like I am his slave, your his slave, his ownership just like he owns the trees in the jinn and everything. There is no value he doesn't set him apart from anyone here. But when the prophets Allah wa salam refers to himself as apt he means as a servant, and a slave of Allah, because he's always careful to not

01:32:17 --> 01:32:59

leave room for anyone to deify him. So Allah subhanaw taala is calling him has upped his devout worshiper. And if it were a journey in spirit, would that spirit be called out? Because life is what is life or being alive? It is one to spirit still as connection to the body. When that's when that connection breaks. The body becomes called a word, Sir, what's the body called anymore? A corpse to Janaza? Yeah, like when we have a Janaza in the masjid. They say, Bring the Janaza this way. Nobody says, Bring Hassan Abdul Latif this way. Or, that was just coincidence. I didn't mean like that. Look, the family hack left.

01:33:00 --> 01:33:14

They don't say bring so until the son of so and so these say bring the janazah the body becomes just a janazah and the spirit becomes a spirit. You would never be abd unless the two are connected. Anyways, that's the first thing from the other things.

01:33:15 --> 01:33:42

Allah subhanaw taala praised the eyesight of the prophets of Allah. What does that mean? He really praised the manners and the behavior of the Prophet SAW Selim during this journey, because Allah Allah says, mazel tov and bustle, warm out Aha. mazovian bizarro matava Look at the the excellent manners of the prophets. I said when Allah was doing was speaking to him. He kept his eyes in the same place.

01:33:44 --> 01:34:16

Curiosity didn't get the best of him. He didn't try to raise his eyes a little bit, see if he can see the one with which he is speaking or to whom he is speaking. He didn't do any of that. And he kept his eyes in the same place didn't try to transgress Tahoe, so his eyesight did not swerve nor did that transgress in our eyesight is transgress right? Your friend opens the door of Santa Monica, you look inside Moloch f where are you looking inside? You know what I'm talking about? Your friend opens the trunk of his car you look inside

01:34:19 --> 01:34:22

your friend opens a wallet. What do you do?

01:34:23 --> 01:34:27

You take you look inside. They open a bag everyone does this.

01:34:29 --> 01:34:30

Their phone rings Could you hand me my phone

01:34:35 --> 01:34:40

I sides transgress people curious. See what's going on?

01:34:42 --> 01:34:50

I was talking about this guy. I brought him to my house and and I'm looking for a piece of paper every time I open a drawer he got up in one leg this to look in the drawer.

01:34:52 --> 01:34:53

Jevon like buffalo fetish into

01:34:55 --> 01:34:56


01:34:57 --> 01:35:00

so the prostate lemmas Allah as well as pray

01:35:00 --> 01:35:11

using that process limbs, his eyesight did not swerve and it did not transgress, try to look at what it didn't look at. Now, what does this have to do with it being a dream versus in body and spirit?

01:35:12 --> 01:35:13

What is this point me?

01:35:14 --> 01:35:18

When when is someone's behavior and manners praised in a dream?

01:35:19 --> 01:35:59

Get it with Allah subhanaw taala praise how he behaved in his dream, you understand? You praise someone's behavior, how they actually behaved, how they acted somewhere. And so Allah subhanaw taala praised him and praised his flock and his manners and he and praised how he never lifted his eyes, because it actually happened. Otherwise, why are you praising someone's behavior in a dream? Or yesterday, someone called me all these names, and I just said, May Allah forgive you, or shallower was this isn't my dream? I really, I'm not impressed anymore. Because nothing's impressive in the dream problem. Needing a physical animal. You remember the long hadith of when the porcelain was in

01:35:59 --> 01:36:42

his dream, then two angels came? And he's, how does it start that narration talks about? I was I last night in a dream I saw last night in my dreams, two angels came to me. There's not a single narration about the sun Mara just says in a dream last night in a dream ever, right? Whereas every narration where he sees something in a dream, he clearly says last night in a dream last night in my sleep last night, I saw, okay, that's one. And in that narration, when they took him and he saw the Hellfire some of the punishments, he saw the jinn. He doesn't talk about how they got there. And whenever you have, like the description of how you know the physical animal, the color of the

01:36:42 --> 01:37:14

animal, the animals sweating, when Jabril said no one's greater than Him was ever written you all these details, and then how it moves. All this shows that it's not a dream, because in the dream, when's the last time you had a dream of going to someone's house, but you stopped at the traffic light, and you actually stopped for like 35 seconds. And then you signaled that you just get there at the house in the dream. So all these details don't show tying the Buraq when's the last time in your dream you park the car? You lock the door you check that it was locked and it doesn't happen.

01:37:16 --> 01:37:55

Then the bra silom drank from the container. How did he drink from this container from from the caravan and his dream? And the water decreased? How? All right forget that. What was the whole issue? Why was Abuja * calling the courage to listen to him? Because it was impossible to believe that in a dream, he went to bathe and miraculous that was the issue. And while I don't understand the some of these contemporary writers who say, Oh, it's just a dream pipe dream if I told you I was in Shanghai last night, you told me and you woke up amongst us? Yes. It was a dream. You Are you impressed that I went to Shanghai in my dreams? It's not it's not impressive. For what's the big

01:37:55 --> 01:38:06

deal and why did some people leave Islam and they're clapping their hands in disbelief and others are laughing. Neville jealous calling people over for a dream because it was hard to believe that you could go somewhere in your dream.

01:38:08 --> 01:38:10

When he told me he went to Shanghai and your dream, I wanted them all in my dreams.

01:38:12 --> 01:38:14

I saw Elon Musk there

01:38:16 --> 01:38:18

then I took his oxygen and left them there.

01:38:20 --> 01:38:40

Pipe Why did the brass Why was his heart taken and filled with wisdom and Washington when filled with the emaan the preparation for this journey of what he's actually about to see me in a dream you need a preparation. And someone might say well maybe the preparation was made in the dream. Really.

01:38:42 --> 01:38:49

In the dream they watched his heart so in his dream you could be strong and see the doesn't even make sense. The process and return on his bed was still warm.

01:38:52 --> 01:38:57

You breech couldn't move any further. Okay, you could argue that it's a dream. But

01:38:59 --> 01:39:34

when you say it's a dream, you kill the magnificence of the journey. The kodra Minaya to Europe begin Cobra, he saw from some of the amazing signs of his Lord. No, I didn't. It's just a dream. Oh, the prophet Salam became a Kaleem have Allah azza wa jal now, because it was in his dream that he spoke to all you understand. You killed the honor that Allah gave him in the story by just making it a dream. So Allah spoke to him in his dream. So he's here Kaleem, Allah spoke to Musa alayhis salam, actually, and Musa became the Kaeleen

01:39:36 --> 01:39:45

and Ibrahim is Salah was the halal of Allah and the prophets of Allah wa salam has the honor of being both the Kaeleen and the Helene.

01:39:46 --> 01:40:00

But thanks to every Nisha the artists alive, we all think of the proxim as the Hubby, your Habibollah or your hubby everyday sheet yeah Habibollah Colleen and hula is a higher level of love than being

01:40:00 --> 01:40:29

In Hubie, so we're demoting when you say the problem is Habibollah or hubby will with demoting him is the allele of Allah Azza. So being a halal and the Kelim both these honors but now you killed one because it was just a dream tour is not a Kelim anymore. The scholars said look at the importance of the Salah, that all the commandments and the obligations came from in through Gibreel, or one way or another, except for this word came directly from Allah azza wa jal

01:40:31 --> 01:40:40

and that shows you the importance of Salah and now he said, it's a dream now you killed it, you kill the importance of Salah. You understand? Yeah.

01:40:42 --> 01:41:11

Also the matter of not just not just a Buraq being a physical animal for this journey, but in the dream, you don't need the the the writing instrument in such detail, but the marriage also was needed. Whereas in the Hadith, of dreaming of seeing the hellfire and Paradise promiseland didn't mention the vehicle that took him there. You see that? Or in any other Hadith with Muslims describing a dream, never described the vehicle that took him to the heavens ever, except here said then they brought for the Mirage.

01:41:14 --> 01:41:25

The process I'm seeing Gibreel in His original form, which is a big deal. But now Now it's not a big deal because he just in the dream, he saw it in a dream. But he actually saw it and that's why

01:41:26 --> 01:41:28

Allah subhanaw taala says,

01:41:30 --> 01:42:02

well, what's the verse that says, well, aka Dre, who knows Latin okra, and the Sidra tell monta and he saw him who's him, you breed another time. So what was the first time when he saw him after revelation, after the period that was known as the federate in the car, and what he the sensation of Revelation? And then what is on his side up the next time you saw him in its original form. And so this is the second time he saw Him in His original form. And Allah mentions in the Quran that he saw him.

01:42:04 --> 01:42:31

Alright, what else do we have? And then just in again, in the dream of when the President went to the heavens, like there wasn't the the repetitiveness of knocking on each one of the gates and then asking permission, and who is it and it's Djibouti? And who is with you, Mohammed? And has he been sent for? And then he welcomed them and came in and every time all that was skipped? The details indicate that it actually happened in body and in spirit.

01:42:34 --> 01:42:38

What would also be the significance of describing the burrata

01:42:39 --> 01:42:57

and the Buraq? You know, naming or sweating? What would be the the significance of describing this animal? If it does, it's just a dream. It doesn't exist yet. I don't know. How many of you enjoy.

01:42:58 --> 01:43:27

Okay, we probably don't we want to agree on this. But one of the things I can't stand as one my kids told me their dreams and like, don't tell, it's just nonsense. Don't tell me. And then there was a It's not real. It didn't happen. It has no meaning no tafsir have no significance, just a waste of time. So what's the significance of saying the Buraq focal hammer will do an old bottle of beer appealed? What's the significance of this doesn't even exist just a dream? Why do we even need to know the animal you wrote in a dream?

01:43:28 --> 01:43:33

There is no significance whatsoever. Okay, maybe I'm just pushing this point too much here, but

01:43:35 --> 01:43:38

and if it were a dream, the porcelain would have said it clearly.

01:43:40 --> 01:43:56

We said they're 20 narration Zilla Buhari at narration Sahih Muslim. And in other books. Also, another single one of the Not a single one says I saw last night in a dream, or went or I went last night in my dream to make a mock of this. Then you might say

01:43:58 --> 01:44:38

why are you making a big deal out of this? Because this opens the doors to many other things. Right? And that's why some of the books and Shala when we start our CETA class we're going to start also by critiquing the the classic and the contemporary books of the Sierra. And there are some books that we might have in our bookshelves at home right now where if you pay attention, the author denies the the the existence of Jabri and they denies the audience, the angels and anytime where Jabril came to the Prophet lamp, he said it's a dream. You know the life of Muhammad that book towards Salah ha you have it

01:44:40 --> 01:45:00

the by Muhammad Hussain Hakan, that many, many of us have it. It's translated in in very good clear, crisp language. You know, it makes you cry and all that. But if you notice, every time he mentions to breed coming to the pro center, it was a dream. Even in the cave when he became a prophet, he said he will

01:45:00 --> 01:45:04

sleeping in his cave, when he saw in a dream the angel came to him.

01:45:06 --> 01:45:16

That's a big deal. If the problem became a prophet in his dreams, that's a big deal. And it can put doubt cast doubt on everything else.

01:45:18 --> 01:45:25

That he said he saw, you know, you breathe and the angel said this to me and it was a dream every time.

01:45:26 --> 01:45:52

And by the way, that's one of the wisdoms behind why the porcelain received revelation in more than one way more than one one. Like there were eight different ways through which the porcelain received the message from Allah azza wa jal by why eight why not just one because let's if it's just dreams, then he couldn't do anything without going to sleep. Sahara. You need to ask him a question by let me sleep on it literally.

01:45:54 --> 01:46:21

Doesn't make sense. It's a big problem. It just opens the doors to all kinds of issues of problems and casting doubt on everything. But no it happened in body and in spirit. And that's why Allah subhanaw taala ensures that Neji mentions it so many times. Maka double for our do Mara, alpha two tomorrow nawala Euro, Yanni you're you're going to doubt what he actually saw with his own eyes.

01:46:23 --> 01:46:36

What AccuDraw when is Latin Oh, Quran he saw him a second time and the Sidra Tillman at the location of the furthest most log tree into her gin natal Magua from beyond that point, is that Jana?

01:46:37 --> 01:46:54

Is he ever just sit there? What am I have shadows exactly what happened? What enveloped in what affected the tree that made it change? Mazza and bustled Amato, all this allows real is defending his behavior in the dream and describing what he saw in his dream

01:46:55 --> 01:46:58

locker. Alright, anyway. So with that,

01:47:00 --> 01:47:46

I'll stop here. But that was basically the gist of the story of an assault. Miraj, believe it or not, the scholars have a lot of discussions and a lot of details on why this and why that and why the significance of this and the other, and many, many, many, many different narrations and they authenticate someone we can sum. So there is you put them all together, and you come up with a very detailed story. And that is the story that the believers don't hesitate for one second in believing, while others this is like the biggest issue to them. When that's usually the the wave those who have doubt and those who are not believers. I remember just to close with this one time I was I was at

01:47:46 --> 01:47:57

work. I used to work at this company. And this coworker says you're Muslim. I said yes. She said, So you believe that your Prophet rode on a winged horse.

01:47:59 --> 01:48:35

Because she's taking the weak narrations of the the wings and all that stuff. Now remember, I was confused by why she would ask question like that. And this was before the dollardays. So but I calculated quickly said but she she doesn't believe in God. Because if you believe in God, what's the big deal? winged horse winged elephant Wigand unicorn rhinoceros, a demonic entity? So I said, Do you believe in God? She said, No. So that's the problem. If you believe in God, you believe the rest. You know, like rumba, the Hadith.

01:48:37 --> 01:48:59

I'll just close with this. But remember when the Hadith when the Prophet Lim said that, while a man this is towards the end of time, while a man was writing a cow, so already something wrong, right? Cows, you don't write cows. While a man was writing a cow. It turned to him and said, I wasn't created for this.

01:49:01 --> 01:49:20

And then the pro Salam says, I believe in this hadith, and so does have a book. And so this Omar, and there weren't even there. But he's giving examples of the types of believers that will believe it. I will Buckaroo will believe this hottie and Omar will believe this hadith. So he's saying will you

01:49:21 --> 01:49:30

so when someone says look, we're cow speaking by Allah autocreate the cow and he also created the animals that can speak Have you seen them?

01:49:32 --> 01:49:34

Know what animals speak?

01:49:35 --> 01:49:36

You're like my children.

01:49:38 --> 01:50:00

Parents, right. I don't know there's this there's this Arab family. I think there are Syrian family that has a parrot on Instagram. You're ever seen them? Hmm. This parrot Danny Ajit, man. He's like get up and pray and and then of course he speaks to the children the way the parents speak to it for thy son. But the point is that by all credit this

01:50:00 --> 01:50:04

This Adela made it speak can Allah make another animal speak?

01:50:05 --> 01:50:10

But people try to make a big deal out of something where there is no big deal. But anyways, I'll

01:50:11 --> 01:50:22

I'll stop here, Zack McKellen for attentively to listening attentively and for coming so long Baraka Muhammad, Allah, Allah, Allah He was like a big mine was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
