mighty brothers and sisters.
Allah subhanho wa Taala began Serato Lisa Elisa, also known as surah, Bani Israel with this ayah where he said I was with him in Russia Tony Raji Bismillah

lacuna, hola hola
MI, see, lots of Glorified and Exalted be He, Allah Allah Allah, who took his lead Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam on a journey by night, from Al Masjid al Haram, to mosque to the farthest mosque, which is Allah says Al Aqsa in Jerusalem, the surroundings of which we have blessed in order that we might show him Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Our Ayat. Verily he, Allah subhanho wa Taala is all here, and all sia.
First of all, for some terminology, israa means journey by night means journey and Mirage is the ascension into the heavens.
So the correct terminology to use is called mirage.
Second, our aqeedah in our genre, is that Allah subhanaw taala talk Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as he was in his body with his life, he did not convert Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam into something else, he did not take his soul. And also la sala Salam did not make this journey in his imagination or in a dream. Allah subhanaw taala did not de materialize him here and re materialize him somewhere else. Allah subhanho wa Taala took Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam as he was with his body on a trans dimensional journey, in a way that is best known to him, jalala to show him whatever he wanted to show him.
an hour Akira is that we believe in this as has been narrated in the Quran well sooner without asking how we like if we don't say How is it possible? How would it have been done? and so on and so forth. That is not our aqeedah Isabella swatara said he did he did because we don't need within quotes, so called proofs from here and there in order to prove any of that.
The second point we come to is the issue of celebrating a particular night in the month of Rajab, usually it is the 27th of Raja which is celebrated as in India, they call it shabba mirage. Interestingly, we should say the origin of the words, Shabbat is a Iranian word, it's a Farsi word, it's not even Arabic in the first place. We don't say Laila to marriage, which is a very shabby marriage. So how is it From where does it come? What is the influence? Let's think about that.
Now, with regard to this right on which is raw and marriage took place, which night was it specifically, there is nothing whatsoever in this he had is to specify a particular night either in Russia or in any other month.
What we have from the hottest
days and in July will be will come to that is that the marriage took place. So our case is that the marriage took place. Did it happen on the 27th of Raja did happen in Ramadan? Did it happen in Shaban? Did it happen in Chahal? Did it happen and
we have no idea.
No idea. Anyone who gives a specific date is talking without knowledge because there is no Sahih Hadith that goes back to a solemn properly according to the Iijima of the scholars of Islam, which gives a specific date. Now, as we all know, there is nothing unusual or nothing peculiar.
This because it was not the custom of the Arabs to remember specific days. They remembered the months and they remembered major events. And they remembered years in terms of a major event that occurred in that year. For example, they said Amel field,
the year of the elephant, which is the year of elephant, when Abra came to attack the Kaaba to with the intention of demolishing the Kaaba, and they said, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was born in that year. Amalfi
who was born two years after amyl field, do they know which specific data they know?
Do they know which specific day and Avi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born? No.
Do they know which day he died? Yes. Now why? because by then Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was also his entire salad was off what was completed, people were there, there was a reason to remember his specific date. But when he was one Salalah,
a child was born in the house of Banu Hashim in the house to the widow of Abdullah
guns on Top Gun.
Show is that there was nothing significant about that is significant for us today, because we believe in the law, but people are mccard that time before the advent of Islam. So one child was born. So also they were God knows Allah, Allah, maybe 200 300 400 children the robot.
So do not be surprised when you read in the Sierra about various incidents, and there is no specific date 20th of June or something this does not this is not part of the Sierra, it was not part of the culture of the Arabs of the time. And so because there is no specific date, it does not detract from the importance of the event. Neither does it add to the importance of the event. So the first point is this.
Second point is that if within quotes, celebrating that particular night, first of all, if you don't know when the night was there, obviously it is logically impossible to celebrate a particular number you don't know the date, you don't know the date. But assuming for example, that we have some date,
or we say that we want to celebrate this night on the 27th of Raja,
then we have to come to another point and that point is that if celebrating this night was important, if specific about that work to be done on that night, which led to specific benefits for the worshipper. Then who is the one whose responsibility it was to communicate to the oma? Who was it? Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salatu salam
now, please do your research. If you don't, if you don't believe me go and look at the Sierra, go and look in the
Salah, did he specify that on the 27th of Raja after Salah kulesza you should stay awake for the whole night and you should pray this salah and that salah and in this Salah you recite this surah in the first record and that Salah you recite a certain set of surah in the second record and if you do this, then this will happen and that will happen. Did you say this anywhere? No.
Did the sabarimala image by the first among them all the whole of Russia did? Did they celebrate the night of Mirage? No. Did they do any specific rabada on that particular night assuming that there was a night because as I told you there the date itself is not there. Did they do that? No.
So now if we are doing it, what do you call that?
Because you are introducing something into the body of this Deen which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam did not do and the biggest problem with that is the one who is doing that is casting an allegation and aspiration on the integrity of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the person is saying that there was something to be done, but Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam did not tell us in alila in Idaho raggio
so please understand very clear very clearly and very carefully. What must you do on that night? or whichever night again as I said or saying what must you do on that night itself is an illogical statement because we don't know which night it is.
But if somebody tells you what we do on the 27th night of Raja, what would you say? You will say inshallah, that I will pray Serato Alicia with Java in the masjid and after that I will sleep for a while and then I will get up in the night for tahajjud like I do 24 seven that I like I do in the whole year in sha Allah, I pray to God every day, therefore I will continue to pray tahajud every day, yes inshallah.
And we'll come to all of this and
What is the real significance? That is why the title of my talk today is what is the reality and the significance or reality and importance of our marriage? Not custom in practice, not what has come into our lives, not the fun and games we have, you know what happens on on the on the night of Islam Allah May Allah protect us in this city, what do our Muslims do? They do two things.
They do not go they they do not do two things. First of all, they do not pray. They do not pray in the masjid. Then what do they do? They go to the tea shops and they drink tea. Then they go around the city or motorcycles. And they throw stones at glass windows, and they break glass windows. headlines in the newspapers, the day after the 27th of Rajab, every year what do you see in the pictures? Broken glass windows broken by home by Muslim celebrating shabby, shabby Mirage in Allah Hi.
This is Islam. This is Islam. To spend your night in a tea shop and break somebody's window. This is Islam La hawla wala quwata illa Allah. Please, my brothers and sisters have no fear to speak about goodness, fear no one other than Allah. If you become unpopular Alhamdulillah if no one wants to listen to you even better
if someone kills you, well if that's what you've been praying for all your life, you're like me and kill me, because I spoke the truth who cares?
Speak the truth. Do not tell lies in the name of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So what must you do? nothing except what you do regularly and what you do what you should do regularly, which is our Salawat.
Please understand Allah subhanaw taala said Ali Omar Kemal to Lacombe no comb wattman la ku Namah t warabi to LA como de la Medina. Allah subhanho wa Taala zaidan ga. This day I have perfected your religion and completed my nehama on you and I have chosen for you, Islam as your dean. The Dean is complete. There is nothing incomplete. In the deen Allah subhanaw taala did not leave a hole somewhere for us to plug with our brains.
These complete Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought a complete Dean. He brought one Dean Nabi sallallahu Sallam did not bring Islam in several flavors. Here is
Islam on the rocks. That is Islam sugar free, and that is Islam. Low fat, right?
Do you find Islam and flavors? No, there's one Islam. What is that Islam? Something you invented? Or I invented? Or my pure motion invented or my grandfather invented? No. Islam is what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought from Allah subhanho wa Taala there is only one Islam.
There is no hanafy Islam and Java Islam and Wahhabi Islam and Salafi Islam and Shia Islam and Sunni Islam and there is one Islam.
That is us be very clear about this. We can make as many divisions as we want makes no difference. That is not Islam. If I create a division of Islam, which I call my Islam, then I and all those who follow me are in the hellfire.
Be very clear about this.
There is one Islam and that Islam is what was brought by Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Let us look at that. And let us follow that without any deviation. And if anyone advises us to do the contrary, no matter who it is, whether it is my own father or grandfather, whether it is this alum or that animal, whether it is this Muslim, or that Muslim,
of that is wrong. We follow what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa salam brought nothing more, nothing less.
Now, let us see what actually happened on this night. As I told you the date is not known. The date is not important. We know it happened and we believe it happened. What happened on this night, a little bit of the background.
It was the 10th year of Revelation, the year that is called a lamb or hosen. As I told you, the Arabs remembered the years because of events. And why is this year called alarming his alarm will hosen the year of sadness. Why is it called here of sadness, because of two very big kilometers things which happened in the life of Rosella.
This was soon after the boycott of the burwash
And all the hardship that had to be endured as a consequence of that and remember in the boycott of the word Hashem everyone was involved Muslims or non Muslims they boycotted the whole subtribe of Russia. So including Abu Talib was in that boycott. So two major things happened. Number one
Abu Talib died
Abu Talib died. And also la sala de la Salam was at his deathbed when he was dying.
And he was sitting on one side of him. And he said, Oh, my uncle. He said, Oh, my uncle, I love you like my father. You will love me like your son. You have spent your whole life helping me. He said, Oh, my uncle, give me one thing only just say with your tongue, Laila Illallah, Muhammad Rasul Allah. He said, just give me this one thing and I will intercede for Allah, I will intercede for you before Allah subhanaw taala.
That is all good. Nothing else. Just say let me hear it. Let Make me your witness
to La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, he's not even saying believe it in your heart, just say, Just say it for the heck of it, just say it.
I was sitting on the other side. And
so now you're frightened of death. And you are going to say this because you fear Muhammad, because you fear this.
See how Satan plays games, then that's why my brothers and sisters, I advise myself when you let us stay on the truth on the straight and narrow, let's not go here and there because as as the allamah, say, shaitan today is only playing games with us. He's only playing
one little thing.
The real force of shaitan happens when we are dying. Those last moments or hours, if shaitan can take away our eemaan at that last moment, then the whole life of what we have done is gone down the drain, nothing else is lifted.
May Allah save us? May Allah save us and that's the reason why it's so important to live this life with this consciousness that I can drop dead at any moment at any moment.
So I was on the other side.
So you're right and I want to say all this now, because you are dying.
And may Allah protect us from this, this is the result of hardness. This is the result of
to a level of arrogance. I would have said I am dying on the religion of my forefathers. I am dying on the religion of Abdulmutallab.
Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam then said I will continue to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive him until Allah tells me to stop.
And then of course Allah subhanaw taala revealed the ayat of Surah Taha
Maka annalena b1 levina Amano is Pharaoh Lil moochie kin walo con una de Cordoba mimbar Dima taba Yun Allah whom, whom as hobble jehane, Allah subhanaw taala says otowa it is not becoming it is not proper for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and those who believe to ask the forgiveness of Allah for the machinery cone, even though they be of kin even though they may be their relatives, after it has become clear to them, that they are the dwellers of the Hellfire because they start they died in a state of shock.
So Allah please understand is very very clearly
Allah subhanaw taala is our up and we are His mock look.
No one has any special connection to Allah subhanaw taala on any basis other than his Akita and his among the famous Hadith zona bass Allah Allah Allah Azza wa sallam when he said, he said if your Amal holds you back, your line edge will not take you forward.
He said, The meaning of that is if your amahl holds you back from the agenda. Your line is where you are descended from who you are, who is your father, who was your grandfather, who's your uncle, who's your auntie Who's your mother makes no difference.
But if you are Amel takes you to the agenda, then your lineup is Alhamdulillah neuronal.
So if I am descended directly from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And if my Amal is such that it takes me to gender, then inshallah I can rely on my line.
To say because I am a saccade because I am descended from Nabi sallallahu, Alayhi Salam Allah subhanaw taala will give me the origin inshallah.
But I may be descended and we have any number of examples we have the son of new Allah Salam. We have the wife of Luther a Salah, we have the father of Ibrahim Ali Salah, we have the uncle of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, all of whom died on Shere Khan Cofer, and what it also does Allah Allah specifically say about Abu Talib.
So lasala salam said, Allah subhanho wa Taala will give my uncle the least of Azov in the jahannam they asked him jasola what is the least of Allah rasulillah salam said the least of Azov is that my uncle will be given sandals of fire and his brain will boil in his head like water
is a list of the other.
Brothers and sisters, I remind myself when you let us not fool ourselves because the only one we can hold is ourselves. Nobody else. Let us not fool ourselves, no amount of standing and saying, you know I am ashamed of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam no amount of standing and dancing here and dancing there, no amount of saying are salatu wa Salam aleykum Well, if your life and my life is not on the Gita vasana
please understand this very, very clearly.
We come to the heydays of our marriage. I have made a just there are several ladies that had his arms with Malika Have you ever heard of
him and others and I have taken a gist of all of those. In the handout which goes with the lecture on the website. The references are given you're welcome to go into the detail and read all those others here. I have to keep tomorrow the timing that I have for tomorrow. Also anyone who's even more interested in the dalla L and so forth. hamdulillah we never say anything without the masjid anyone who's interested are most welcome to email me and I will send you all the literature and has been Marika Viola on hoonah rates Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam said I was in the Hatim at night. The Hatim is the outside it's technically the, the the part of the cover, but it is the open area
which is outside the car.
I was in the bathroom at night when I received a visitor who opened my chest and he removed my heart and placed it in a basin of gold filled with faith. He washed my heart and put it back in my chest. Then I was presented with an animal which was smaller than a horse and bigger than a donkey and has been Marika Viola No, sir It was albayrak he took a stride as far as it could see. jabril alayhis salam told me to mount this animal and that he would guide me He took me to Jerusalem where I tied my mount at the gate of the masjid, which I entered and pray two rakaat Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam was the Imam and the people who prayed behind him were all the ambia la hemos Salam from Adam
alayhis salam to the last Nabhi before Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Who was he Sally Salah
junella salam den ascended with him to the heaven of the world, the first heaven and knocked on its door, the dwellers of the heaven, the guards of the gates at Who is it? He gibreel A Salam said, Muhammad, he said jabril they said who is accompanying you? He said Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, they said has he been called? He said yes, they said he is welcomed.
For those of you who have, who have seen either my lecture or attended it here on the on death and hereafter. Do you recall the similarity between this and what happens to the soul when we die?
Think about that.
Think about that. You want those gates to open? Yes.
So the dwellers of the heavens became pleased with his arrival and they did not know what Allah subhanaw taala would do to Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Salam on the earth unless Allah informed them when they came to the gate did they know that giveaway the Salam was coming with vamos a la sala know, the Malika know what Allah doesn't?
There is only one available right? There is only one who has knowledge of the unperceivable Who's that?
Allah subhanho wa Taala nobody else? Nobody else. No man, no prophet, no angel. No, nobody. How do we explain that Nebuchadnezzar is Salam told us about some events which we are which were from the unknown. How do you explain that?
Because Allah subhanaw taala informed him. So therefore he had a lot of what Allah gave him is he Allah moves, I move luck.
Does he know everything about the unseen know?
To have that Akita is shirk fear Oh via delight Allah please understand very clearly.
So the angels came, and generally Salam took him to the first heaven Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said he met Adam alayhis salam in the first heaven. gibreel said to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam he is your father greet him. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam greeted him as sir said a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. And Adam alayhis salam returned the greeting and said, welcome, oh my son, or what a good son you are.
And then Jabra is Salam toh showed Rasul Allah is Allah Salaam, to flowing rivers while he was in the near sky, just imagine this thing in your in your mind. Imagine you are on a space station, you're looking at the at the earth. What is the picture of seeing when many of us have seen the Hubble telescope photographs and so on of the earth, think about that. Bring the dean alive in your lives. It's not a dead story to be told.
xlm is there. And devialet salam showed him and said that is the Nile and that is the Euphrates, the two major rivers.
Then Jerusalem took him around that heaven on the first heaven. And behold, he saw another River at the bank of which there was a palace, built of pearls and emeralds. And he put his hand into the river and he into the bottom of the river and he took out the mud. And he said it was mosque.
what is called a frog in Arabic. He said What is this? Oh jabril gra Salam said, this is alcocer which your Rob has kept for you. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to decree that on the Day of Judgment, we get the water of alcocer from the hand of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam given to us to drink, and that takes away the thirst for us for the rest of the day of judgment in sha Allah.
Then gibberella salaam ascended with him to the second heaven. And the angel asked the same question as doors on the first heaven. Who is it? jabril gibreel Desert who is accompanying you? He said Mohammed? They said has he been sent for they said yes. They said he is welcomed, and then he will send it to the third heaven and the same things. And he ascended to the fourth heaven and the same things.
And then he ascended to the fifth and the sixth. And they said the same thing and the Ascended then to the seventh heaven, where they asked the same questions, and they were given the same answers. On each heaven. There were prophets whose names he had mentioned, and of whom I remember I meaning and has been Malik narrating the Hadith. He said, I remember Idris on the second Heaven, Ali salam, Harun Ali Salam on the fourth on the fourth heaven and another prophet whose name he said, I have forgotten on the fifth Heaven, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam on the sixth heaven and Musa alayhis salam on the seventh heaven because of the privilege of talking to Allah subhanaw taala directly. He said
masala Salam said to Allah. When he saw one of his early Solomon and saw him going up. He said, Oh, Rob, I thought that none would be raised above me. Was Isaiah was a very special novela today a very special connection with Allah Allah Allah.
But gibril ascended with him Salallahu alaihe salam for a distance above that, the distance of which only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows till he reached citrato monta ha the boundary beyond which none may pass and then Allah subhanho wa Taala order Rasul Allah is Allah Allah to come forward Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam looked at jabril He said, I am not going to accompany me. You accompanied me all the way from the earth. gibberella salam said this is my boundary, my boundary and here.
He said I cannot take one step beyond his boundary.
He said you have been ordered. So you can go
Jeeva Salalah mC mC mC guru. It is incumbent on the Muslim that when the name of Mohamed Salah Salem is is mentioned that he says a lot and Sarah Mondo sola sola Sallam said at least once and after that says Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam when you hear the name of Rasulullah Salah.
And he approached Salallahu alaihe salam and came closer till he was in the Hadees to bow lengths from Allah subhana wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala showed him what he had to show him and we will see the ad is with relation to that Rasul Allah Allah mentioned about the size of the universe which he was shown. He said the size of the lowest heaven this sky which we see, compared to the next one, was like a ring thrown in a desert.
And he said the one next to that was like a ring thrown in a desert all the way until the seventh
And then he said, the kursi compared of Allah subhanho wa Taala compared to all of that is like a ring thrown in a desert, all the rest of all the heavens together compared to the kursi of Allah subhanho wa Taala is like a ring thrown in a desert.
Please understand this, you know, we are talking about things which are beyond our comprehension. By logically we cannot within courts understand something which is outside of our experience is not possible. Can the men here understand you might have empathy and sympathy and so on. But can you actually understand what it means to give birth to a child?
Can you say this, because I love my wife so much I love my wife beyond anything else.
And I really understand what it is to give birth to a child can the man says, No, no matter how much you love your wife, there is no earthly way that you as a man can actually understand what a woman goes through and she is giving birth.
And that is the reason why a man came to Israel Solomon said jasola So tell me sir, I took my mother for Hajj, and she can't she can't walk. So I carried on my back, the entire hedge, all the kind of hedge.
He said, I took all that on my back, I completed this whole hedge for my mother. Have I fulfilled her right on me.
All that you did, does not even does not even fulfill the right of the first birth pin that she had when she was giving birth to you.
He said it does not even pay for that one birth pin. Forget about fulfilling your right your mother's right on you forget about the right. Even that one birth Finn. Do we have any idea of this? How can we try to understand what it means to go from heaven to heaven to heaven and to stand before Allah Allah Allah before is our
brothers sisters, please understand this. Now.
Among the things that Allah subhanaw taala revealed a Salam was 50 Salawat
50 Salah in one day in one night, 24 hours. Now think about this.
Many times we are used to this being described as this burden, which was noted on the head on obesity and autism is people talk about this burden, which had to be lightened. But think about it this way. It's the Way of Kings that the best are gifts to those who come to visit them.
He would visit the king they give you things.
They give you things they give you gifts.
And what is the best of all gifts.
What is the best of all gifts, the permission to come into the modulus of the king at any time. There is no gift better than this.
There is no good better than this. See the if where if your own is speaking to the magicians. What does he tell the magicians.
He tells them that if you win this competition against Musa alayhis salam. He says I will give you gifts and I will give you the right to come into emergencies anytime. You will be among the worker when you will be among those who are closest to me.
Wealth is wealth it can finish but what about your access to the king? Any time?
It's what Allah subhanaw taala say Allah does it every half hour coming to me
every half what is 50 2040 or 50?
every half an hour come into my imageless every half an hour come into my Darbar every half an hour come before me
was thrilled I
was very happy. There are hungry law what bigger honor can they can they be
that I am permitted to come into the presence of Allah subhanaw taala every half hour
and so also my whole oma what is the better what is a bigger honor than this? My brothers sisters Let us open our eyes. Let us learn to look at our Deen in the reality of this deal. The reality of this deal
and then Allah subhanaw taala shore Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whatever he wanted to show,
Nuria him Minaya, Tina, Allah reassured him whatever he wanted to show, and as I told you, guys, we do not conjecture we do not guess we do not say well, maybe this maybe that no, we stay with what we have been told. Alhamdulillah
and, of course, all of us know
The story in a solemn came down and the first ever neomed masala Salah masala Salam said What did you get? He said I got 50 Salawat Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala gave me and my oma the permission to come into His presence every half an hour. masala Salah Hold on a minute that is not how you are going to see it. He said asked me laser
laser asked me. I know what your room is like because I have a room I like that. He said they will not see this as a privilege. They will not see this as an honor they will see this as a masiva they will see this as moschella they will see this as great burden on their heads. Go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and reduce it
in the Hadees and has been Malika de la Rosa Rosa Saracen looked at gibberella Salama, jibberish, Salam indicated agreement. Surah Surah Surah, Salah, went back to Allah subhanaw taala is zero Allah.
O Allah, please reduce the number. Imagine the position on
the king gives you a gift and we say no, I don't want it Please take it back in the law when
he went back and reduced by 10. Then he went back again and again and again until five salvato left when he came back with five Salawat musala Sallam said I had less than that and they would not do it.
He said for my own might was less than that and they would not do it they will not do five
mozarella was the writer was your idea.
He said they will not do five go ask Allah subhanaw taala to reduce it even more, as well as Allah Allah said, No, I'm ashamed to go humara he said I feel I feel very shy to go before. How can I How many times do I go? And then? Sula, Salah Salem said they heard a voice and the voice said la de la de Cali Mattila, the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala is not changed. Your oma will pray five and they will get the benefit of 50
Allah lucky Shania, then,
start the Shan have by Rob that after giving something he takes it back to
50 Salawat with its reward was given.
So even if we get the reward of 50
Omen jabil has sanity fala who eyeshadow I'm sorry, the one who comes with one good deed. Allah said I will give you 10 like that.
brothers sisters, please understand this.
rasulillah salam returned after the Juma Salam said dissent. And the results are absurd. I woke up.
I got my consciousness I was in the hottie.
rasulillah salam when to Omar Iman.
The lady used to take care of him. And he told her he said I went to Jerusalem and back in this night. When my man said yeah, Rasul Allah.
It's okay you told me but don't tell anybody this.
Jesus do not tell anyone this because they will not believe you.
That I don't care if they believe me or they don't believe me. It is my job to convey and I will convey
so as always, Allah Allah announced
the news reached Abu Jamal al came running. And he said, Tell me tell me what what I was saying what I was saying. That also Rasul Allah said in last night, I went from Makkah to Jerusalem, and back. And Allah subhanaw taala took me into the heavens, and he showed me all these things. I said, All right. Imagine
that. What is he thinking? He said, Man, I got you now good. is no way you would escape this one. Right? So he said, I'll tell you what, I'm going to call all the courage when you say the same thing. Will you change your words?
No, I will. I will say my I will say exactly the same thing.
Right, I got you now.
See, what am I saying? Y'all gathered?
And they said, Yes, tell us what are you saying? And also rozella Salim said I was taken from muchas muchas de la casa. And then I was taking her to the heavens. Dakota is burst out laughing people love so much they fell down.
People love so much they fell down the McPherson say that some of the Muslims left Islam.
Some of the Muslims left Islam on this event on this on this news.
Then when they recovered from their great mirth, and they're great,
you know, of all the laughing
Some of them who had been to Jerusalem they were our traders they had been to Jerusalem and so on. Some of them said all right, so you went to Jerusalem. Yeah.
So tell us describe Jerusalem,
described Jerusalem. They asked him specific questions. And Allah, Allah tala Salim said, Allah subhanho wa Taala showed me Jerusalem, in front of my eyes. And I looked at it and I told them brick by brick stone by stone.
Until they said, Yes, he is right. What he's saying is correct. Now is Allah Allah. Allah also told them that on the way back from Jerusalem, he said, I passed one of your caravans, one of the caravans of the Polish, and he told them in the first camel, this is the Lord, this is what is loaded on the first camel. And he said that they lost one of the camels. And that last camel is in such and such a place. And he also said that they were carrying water and I drank from that water, the Corolla. This is easy. They sent a fast rider they said, Go and meet that caravan and tell them this is what he's saying. Is it true? The man went there, he asked them specifically and they said
every single thing he said is true.
They went to the place where he said the last camellias, they found the gavel, they said yes, somebody has taken from our water. We could not see what it was.
My brothers sisters, yes. Think about this. How come when these tests happen? How come all the courage including how come they didn't say alright, sorry, you know, I think we were wrong. You are right. So we accept you are the Rasul Allah, why did they do that?
Because of one thing, which also May Allah protect us operates with us. And that is, we don't like to hear the truth from people we don't like.
Alice Walker mentioned in the Quran with respect. He said the only reason you don't listen to him The only reason you don't accept him is because you don't like him.
Whose loss is it? Whose loss is it? A man comes and tells you the house is on fire? He said you know what, I don't care. I don't like your face. Someone
don't like my face. Oh man. Who cares?
But this is what we do. We don't like to listen to things from this one and that one because I don't like that man. I don't like that woman. Please.
Please understand, if someone is telling you something for your benefit, and if you don't listen, who is whose losses it's
not the boss of the business speaking of even if you don't listen and nor disagree, who cares?
And that is what the chorus did.
To add the Add is I want to mention in this context, one is hobbies that both are both of these hobbies, including the one I narrated before are all in Buhari
narrated, Abu huraira. Delano on the night that Allah subhanho wa Taala messenger sallallahu Sallam was taken on a night journey to marriage. Two cups were presented to him. In one there was wine and the other one there was milk. And these two cups are presented to him in Jerusalem by Jubilee salon on Nicola rossano Saracen looked at it and took the cup of milk. Jabez rum said Praise be to Allah who guided you to the fitrah if you had taken the cup of wine, your nation would surely have gone astray.
And the second half is limited by masuk from Ayesha Siddiqa, the Allahu Allah omo momineen, if who said that if anyone tells you that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has seen his orapa he is a liar for Allah subhanho wa Taala said no vision can grasp him and this is the ayat of the Quran. And if anyone tells you that Mohammed Salah Salam has seen the unseen meaning Allah subhanaw taala he is a liar for Allah says none as the knowledge of the unseen but Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now even the oma even abaza Delano differed with this year a different view. And therefore the the the the accepted view of the Allah of our Jama is that Allah,
Allah, so Allah subhanho wa Taala with his heart, not with his eyes, and what is the nature of seeing Allah with his heart? Allah subhanaw taala knows best. We don't have to go into that. This is one of the events of of the of the offer Eman believe that we have is part of our Akita we believe it without going into the cave. How did it happen is a question that should not be asked for a very simple reason that nobody can answer that question. The only one who can answer that question is also lasala salam. So make sure that you and I are with him in general for those who Allah and when we are sitting with him in sha Allah and having a meal. Then we will ask him and say Yasser Allah
when you met your rub in the in the on the night of the Mirage how
Did you see him? What was the nature of that seeing? Let us ensure rasulillah salam is we inshallah will be in general for those who Allah, we have to make sure that we are also there. So let us live our lives in such a way that we can get there. And then of course, we can ask all our difficult questions to him at that point in time.
And this is also our aqeedah about the mergesort of the MBR that we believe what happened charcoal color, do we believe that the moon was split into two Yes or no? Yes. Why do you believe that? Because Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that in the Quran. Now, do you know how this could have happened? How could this satellite have split into two and already joined back? And if somebody and a lot of emails wrote around?
when when when the astronomer when when the when the cosmonaut astronaut when they he saw a line and this line is the joining of the don't don't don't fool yourselves, no, no need to go into all that nobody has to see a lion on the moon to know that this is where it split and it dried. Do you think Allah subhanaw taala is incapable of joining the moon back without a lion being there.
Now a Lakota level
you make Are you if there is there is a crack in the wall in your house. When you when you when you when you
join the crack back? Do you leave the line there or make sure that there is no line? What is this? There is no need? Please understand.
If a carpenter says
if a carpenter says I do not understand how a cardiac surgeon can replace a heart. Does it mean that henceforth heart transplants are not possible?
Does it mean that it just means that the carpenter does not have the motor mechanic for example, if he says, I don't know how a cardiac surgeon How can a heart be replaced? I don't believe this, how can someone take out a heart and put it back in a man is not dead?
Right? I don't believe this doesn't mean that this is not possible.
So what are we saying? We are saying a basic principle of understanding the Kalam of Allah, a basic principle of understanding the revelation. A lower level knowledge can never explain a higher level of knowledge.
And because someone who has knowledge of a lower level does not understand what happens at a higher level, it does not negate what actually happens at a higher level.
Changing a carburetor and changing our heart are two different things. Even though they both pump fluids.
Right. There's a difference and we don't go to a mechanic if you need a heart transplant. I mean, you wouldn't go there you might not come back.
So also, for example, I don't know how many of you have read a wonderful book called hyperspace written by a physicist called Michio Kaku, who was one of the students of Einstein, where he talks about the multi dimensional theory and he talks about unifying theory which unifies all theories and so on, so forth. And if you read through that book, and when I was reading through the book, I was thinking of this in our marriage, as well as sort of navan. Many of you have heard my lecture on supernova in that context.
It explains within quotes, how a multi dimensional journey could have been taken in body in split second, coming back how all of this is eminently possible, according to the physics that we already understand. Because the moment you step out of this dimension, which is the dimension, which consists of
length, breadth, height and time, once you're out of the dimension of time, time has no meaning. There's no one second two seconds, one, one hour, two hour, nothing that has no meaning. There's no time. And when there's no time, and many things can be done, I mentioned Robin, I'm not going into all of that discussion just now. But just tell you that all of this is possible. But then as I told you, is not my way that we try to describe a higher level knowledge with lower level knowledge, it is not possible to try and describe the Quran, trying to explain the revelation with so called scientific knowledge is illogical, because scientific knowledge doesn't even begin, the revolution
begins where the boundary of science ends.
So to end, what therefore, is the significance of marriage? Number one, marriage is a test of our man. Believe me, even today, there are people who do not believe that this actually happened. There are people who do not believe that the solar solar system actually went in his body. There are people who have all sorts of tabula and explanations and so on, and so on and so forth. And people who believe that this didn't actually happen, believe me, those people are in exactly the same place as the kurush. Were on the day when it was first announced. So first and foremost, it is the it's a test of our demand. And therefore there is no need to give any explanation Alhamdulillah Allah
subhanaw taala said it happened therefore we believe it happened halus End of story and of discussion. If somebody says How did it happen? You tell him when you get to General for those who are Allah asked Rasul Allah, Allah
Don't ask me I didn't go.
Right. Not my marriage, your marriage is the mirror. Ask him go ask him. Don't ask me why why do you expect me to? Oh, but you are a Jehovah hamdulillah. Very good. You discovered what I was trying to hide a
second one, what should be our response? Our response, the most beautiful response is the response of workers to do karate Allahu anhu.
And this is the incident on which he was given the title of Siddiq. They came to him and they said to him, you know what your friend is saying? He said, What is my friend saying? He said, Your friend is saying that he went from Makkah to Jerusalem and then he went to
see the response. Our Casa de la
casa de Delano said, if he said that, then it is true.
This statement is the foundation of the science of authentication of IDs.
If he said it, it is true. We don't say if he said it however it doesn't. I don't understand how it happened. Therefore, I will Question no. What are we what are we authenticating in what is the illogicality of it? No, did he say it or not? If Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said it, then it is true whether or not I understand specifically how it could have happened.
And that is what gave rise to the entire body of knowledge which is called elmora. Smell Rizal the knowledge of the names of the people which is a unique thing in this obasan Allah, may Allah reward the Allah who did the research, where they have literally more more than 150,000 names and personal histories with character affirmations of the narrator's of a hadith. There is no body of knowledge like that in any
piece of knowledge or any country or any community or any religion that exists in the world. We should be proud of this hamdulillah we are so gentle. We have no concept. How many of you have never heard of the term? A little more or less? Well, Rachel, don't Don't raise your hand I don't know.
Third point. Third point is the importance of Salah.
What is our take away from marriage?
salah and that's why What did you call the Salah. miraggio min miraggio mo he said this is your marriage. When you stand on the masala when you stand before Allah subhana wa tada Allah Akbar, you are standing before the man. He said when the believer makes us such that he's not making us such down on the earth. He's making a such w for the throne of man. How can we get this is the Huizar of this how can we get a personal understanding personal awareness of this L that is the manner that is the shortcut that is the effort that we need to make. And that is what we know as for show while Hodo fistula the importance of our marriage is not just the stories, it is not what happened and a
lot of tough Sarah and so on on what happened and how could it have happened and so on. The lesson of it is, we believe it happened because Allah subhanho wa Taala said it and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said it.
number one. Number two,
what is my take away from it? Salah, my direct connection with Allah, the sobre la mcvane there was so happy when this incident happened. So Alhamdulillah Allah has given us now a way of connecting to him directly.
Allah has given us a way where we can stand and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for anything we want.
And is also finally this also
underlines for us the importance of Alberto macness Let us make dua that Allah subhanho wa Taala should release it from the yodel of CBN and give it back into the hands of the Muslim in but understand Allah subhanho wa Taala will not give it into the hands of Muslim men who do not even pray. Allah subhanaw taala gave it into the hands of the likes of Omar Abdel Fattah
Al Jazeera, Allah does not did not give it into the hands of people like me or you. So we have to first prove to Allah subhanaw taala that we are capable and worthy of taking the keys of al-faisal Magnus and then inshallah Allah subhanaw taala will give it to us in the same way without a single drop of blood being shed by the people who control it today. They will call us and hand over the keys to us when Allah subhanho wa Taala directs them to do that. And that will happen when we make ourselves capable of taking the
Keys of Jerusalem. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us capable of that. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to remember this I have to help us to remember this I have the Quran of surah Bani Israel where Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the taking of knobbies Allah Allah Allah wa sallam from Allah says Allah ROM too much is Alexa, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept all outdoors. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to accept your coming here and to protect you and his Masjid and to protect your families from all the sugar and all the short of this dunya welaka ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you and me genital for those who Allah be resolved, and the company of the best of the best Mohammed
