wa Salatu was Salam ala Shara philam, via email mousseline, Mohammed or Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam does live and Catherine cathedra Hamato Sisters, we spoke about
the death of Abu Talib Rasul Allah is on the rise and an uncle and the IRA that Allah subhanaw taala revealed in Surah, two causes, and the ayat of surah to Toba,
about that event and about making dua for
people who die without Eman.
This was a very, very difficult year
for Salah Salem, because just as he was
while he was still in
the grief, and dealing with a bereavement of his uncle, metallic, two months later, another what we would call a
happened and that was the death and passing away of our mother, Khadija to cobra, or the Allahu anha or dark.
This was in the 10th year of revolution. And that is why that year is called I'm in the year of sorrow, the year of sentience. This was the most tragic time for us to live in Salem when he lost the two greatest supporters that he had.
But this was also a part of the tarbiyah of the ward
where Allah subhanaw taala is getting his messenger away from all sources and connecting him to himself gelatin.
This is also the increase the dependence of the Muslims or Allah subhanaw taala and saw that Tawakkol would increase it was at this time there are so many Shara was revealed when Allah subhanho wa Taala said I will be live in a shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim LM National
Wildlife Gabi so like a lady goddess or what I'll find like as the economic for in Nevada nursery used to run in Nevada Eilers reuse the love for our waterfront sabula II because
my brother sisters I want I want
to I wanted to send the or read the translation of the surah you know which Surah this is this the surah after sort of the heart so to inshallah or an unnatural and one of the things that Allah rather than a promises in the Surah and he promises that twice is that there is is
Marlowe's legal Salah with
difficulty there is ease with the difficulty that it is and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to remember this every time we are faced with any difficulty
this was the year in which also took place one of the greatest events and greatest not just because of the physical aspect of it of Rasulullah Salem
you know going on an interstellar trip into what today we would call outer space and far beyond that it's not something that we can even conceptualize because it's a multi dimensional travel which we will be talking about space travel you're not you're not talking about multi dimensional travel you're talking about traveling the same dimension
and also when in a multi dimensional travel what also realize our setup did in his travel Mirage is something which we can understand conceptually if you if you have if you've read anything about
multi dimension theory for example, if you read Michio Kaku book hyperspace he doesn't allude to this because he's not talking about Islamic merit, but he talks about the possibility theoretical possibility of multi dimensional travel and then if you and my immediate thought when I read that was how closely it applies to
And also as a result, I'm sad about this. I was in the Hatim at night when I receive
You have a messenger visitor who opened my chest and you removed my heart and he placed it in a basin of gold filled with fit. 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 mining on their land or
give the name he said that has gone this animal, the Brock
he took a stride this animal took a stride as far as could see as far as it could see, one strike, wa sallam told me to mark this animal and that he would guide me. He took me to Jerusalem where I tied my mount at the gate of the budget, which I entered and pray two rakaat
Allosaurus Salam was the Imam and the people who prayed behind him were all the Gambia and all the souls of Allah subhanaw taala all of them who have been sent into the world all of them, of course, were passed away.
Then the very least took me into the heavens. Jabril Islam knocked on the first of the gates, they said Who is it?
Gibreel who is with you? Mohammed sunrise Allah. Was he given this vision? Yes. He is welcome and his arrival is a pleasure.
Lazarus has continued he said I went in and I found that in my father Adam A salaam Gibreel introduced me I made Saara he returned the salam and said welcome to my pure sun and the pure profit.
Now imagine this meeting. You know Subhan Allah what kind of feeling would that have given?
To Rasul Allah he's a fella.
How would he have felt meeting other Melissa meeting his father, and our father,
the the nabi alayhi, salam,
wa salam, then to consumers or sell them to the second gate. And the same conversation happened. And he said, I'm there I met, and this is these are the gates to each of the heavens, each of the dimension that you're talking about.
So at the second, in the second heaven, he said, I met I met ISA and yeah, I met ISA and I met.
Yeah, easily set up. And you're here and
I exchanged greetings with them. And salam alaikum, salaam, the third heaven. He said, I made use of a salon. And he and the reason I sent him praise is beauty. He said he has been given half of the beauty of that was
On the fourth when he met Idris Alaihe Salam, in the fifth time, he met her on a slap in the sixth time when he met Musa et cetera.
When the solar sun hasn't moved or started to move ahead, Musa alayhis salam started to weep.
So I've asked him, why do you weep? Why do you cry? He said, a young man was given prophethood after me, but more of his people will enter Jannah than my
and that young man is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam. In the seventh heaven Rasul Allah is also met Ibrahim Ali salah.
He said, and then I was presented with vital bamboo.
And this is mentioned by thermometer is mentioned in sort of tool.
If anyone has said I was kneeling next to buy it, or Malmo and that is the symbolic end of the one who built the Kaaba. This is like the, like the Kaaba on the earth, the Malayaka make off of this house 70,000 Malaika visited every day, at any malloc any angel that goes to vital, Malmo goes only once in his lifetime, never come back. Imagine how we shouldn't need to be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala that Allah subhanaw taala permits us to visit his house in the earth, the carbon a number of times.
The solar there is an observed the heavens above you are creaking. He said the heavens above you. It's like a heavy man sits in a chair, the chair creeks, their creaking and they're justified in that because on every space of four fingers, right every space of four fingers. There is an angel in Rocco, also Jude worshiping Allah subhanho wa taala.
Now think about this, that you know we think may Allah forgive us. There are people who think that
when they are worshipping Allah, when they are making records
or sujood they think that they are doing Allah favor. Allah does not need our worship. We do this for ourselves. Then to continue the story then Salam said GB Gibreel A salaam to be forward until we reached Sidra Turman Taha. Now remember, all of these things are from an array, these are from the unperceivable. So we, we know what we have, we believe what we have, and we do not ask why and how.
So, since it is known that there is a tree that is called the Lord tree. And of course, it is not the Lord tree, as you can see in the world, it's whatever I must add that has created, and that is the last boundary. And beyond that is the world of the afterlife.
After of the Accra, as soon as I said, I'm sorry for reverse,
coming out from Siddhartha monta.
And these two he said, one was the Nile, the other one was the Euphrates and two rivers of Jannah. Now about the size of these heavens or Surah Surah Salam described them, he said, the lowest common the first one compared to the next one is like a ring like a finger ring, in a desert right in the ring in a desert. The first heaven compared to the second heaven is like a ring in a desert. The second heaven compared to the third heaven is like a ring in a desert. The third heaven compared to the fourth heaven is like a ring in a desert. The fourth heaven compared to the fifth heaven is like a ring in a desert. The fifth heaven compared to the sixth heaven is like a ring in a desert. The
sixth heaven compared to the seventh heaven is like a ring in a desert, the seventh heaven compared to the cursi of Allah subhanho wa Taala is like a ring in a desert and the Arcia of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala
covers all of this and more.
Look at the question of the size of some of these things. So as a result, I mentioned the four angels which hoard the Arsalan was hammered in the house. He said, These angels are so massive this the creatures of Allah subhanaw taala we don't worship them, we worship Allah.
He said that the angels are so massive that if a bird of fast flying bird takes off from the short of the angel, it will fly for 500 years to reach the ear lobe of the angel. This distance is so massive that a bird will take 500 years of flight before it can reach from here to here.
This was an asylum went beyond this after several months, generally least that I was struck that he said to us was SLM, you have been ordered to go ahead. GB restaurants as soon as I said, I'm sorry, are you not going to come with me? Like you came with me for the whole journey? To realize that I'm saying no, this is where my body ends, I do not cross the border.
Let me say this and I went ahead.
And there he met Allah subhanaw taala in a way that Allah knows. And he knows and we do not know.
Did he see Allah? They asked ISIS Did they follow the law Anna
did. So Allah says Allah see Allah. She said, I asked him and he said, nobody can see Allah, except from behind a curtain.
Now, when a Surah Surah selamat Allah subhanaw taala.
Whatever happened happened, Allah showed him what he wanted to show him and I said to him, what he wanted to say to him, Allah subhanaw taala inspired him to praise Him and, and to speak to him and to say to him, what Allah subhanaw taala wanted him to say, what we know from this is that this is where Allah subhana wa Taala gave us was seldom
a gift. Now, this is the way of the kings and Allah subhanaw taala Donna Nominum Allah subhanaw taala who are who are mal molekule, Huck, Rumble or shield Kareem He is the true king, the only king and he is the rub. And the creator and sustainer of the
of the Magnificent Throne of the actual green
is the Way of Kings that when somebody comes to meet them,
that king gives that person a gift to honor that person and as a remembrance of that visit. Allah subhanaw taala gave us almost a cinema gift and the gift was his he gave him 50 prayers in every day. 24 hours 50 prayers means every half hour every 30 minutes, right.
So Salah was delighted. He was very, very happy. He said our hamdulillah
Every 30 minutes means what means that it is the opportunity to remain in the court in the magnificence in the Presence of Allah subhanho wa Taala 24/7
For one who loves Allah Serrano Tara, what can be better than that?
What can possibly be better than that?
So as soon as I said I was delighted I was very happy I accepted this. And I, Allah subhanaw taala gave me permission to leave. So I left. He's there as soon as he came to the sixth heaven, where moosari Salaam was Messiah. He said, I'm stopped him. He said, What did Allah give you?
As soon as I said, I'm said Allah subhanaw taala gave me 50 Salah per day 50 prayers per day so I can be with him and my ummah can be with him because this gift was for the whole ummah.
Allah has opened the doors of his throne of his of his darba of his audience chamber for my people, and my people have been given the opportunity to be in the presence of Allah subhanaw taala 50 times every day. Musa literals in order.
He said yes, this is a gift. Yes, you recognize it as a gift. And Musa is Ramza take my word for it. I know your people, because I know people.
Your people will see it as a burden. They will not see it as a gift.
So go back to Allah subhanaw taala and ask him to reduce his number.
sort of semester number shocked,
but was it Salah had this experience and he was the winning course W experience the senior
salsa, took his advice he went back into the presence of Allah subhanaw taala see how awkward that can feed our work awkward that can be the king Allah subhanho wa Taala al Malik will not be giving you a gift and you are taking it back and you're saying I don't want this reduced this.
I cannot bear this reduced this
loss around that as arandora heap and lots of areas that are reduced it
also came back was that is that how much he said 45 is a no go back. As for reduction that this went on until five prayers were left.
when he came back again, was that he said I've said no still too much. Still too much what it was or is or know about is that we don't think about this. He says still too much. They will not do five prayers a day they will feel that is too much. Let's do this. I am not going back. He said I feel ashamed. I feel very shy to go back into the presence of almost that I've already been back so many times to go back again and say reduce this I will not do it.
But this is where the
graciousness, the generosity, the magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala shows itself again and again.
Allah subhana dialysate results in Salah, let them pray five times a day, but I give them 50 So I will not reduce that reward.
So they will pray five times a day but I will give them the reward for 50 times.
Our brothers sisters, this is the salah.
This is the Salah, which we think is so much of a burden.
We pray five times that Allah gives us the Word of 50 times.
This is the gift of Allah subhanaw taala
Salah is an honor salah is a gift, Salah is not a burden.
When will we understand this
please bear with us just please have mercy on yourself. Do not read the Salah as a burden and that same Salah and that's what he does but he never sees that same Salah if you pray by Jehovah
in the masjid or with with your family, people anywhere, if you pray differently the Muslims but you know if you're not, if you don't have access to the masjid, then you can do the salah elsewhere, the same Salah when you pray it with Java, Allah subhanaw taala gives you 27 times the reward.
So you're getting 10 times the reward anyway.
When you play in Java, you get 27 times the reward.
then the soreness was 11. Now on this journey, I noticed that I showed him many things. And we have many beautiful hadith of Persona Salah salams journey in Elisa with Mirage
When he described all the things that he saw, Allah showed him the beauty and the magnificence and the glories and the luxuries of Jannah. And you also showed him the punishment or the hellfire.
When he showed him the people who will be in the Jannah. And he showed him the people who will be in the fire.
In some cases, actual people, they actually individual disorder. In other cases, he saw people in the deeds that led them to Jannah or will lead them to Jana and the deeds that will lead them to Johanna We ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from deeds leading to, to Johanna.
as soon as SLM after all of this, he returned,
Now, all this happened in the period of just one night,
and that also not even the whole night, it happened during the night, the actual period, in one hand is a source of silence and the
the chain of the door.
You know, when you when you unlock the door, and you leave it the chain, like a pendulum, it swings. He said the chain was still swinging when I got back.
That's very easy to understand, because when you are in multi dimensional travel time has no significance time has no value time has no effect. Right? So you know, you cannot translate that whole journey in terms of earthly time. Time is restricted to the earth. It's one of the four dimensions. In our four dimensional world.
We have the three dimensions of space. And one dimension of time. This is our four dimensional world.
Center went out of this
into as many dimensions the last marathon I took him, the seven heavens, we just know what beyond this, we don't know.
So time has no meaning in that whole context.
So when he came back, he said to my mother,
my one was the the she was always wet nurse she was also his nurse. She was the servant woman of his mother.
From before he was born.
So when he was born,
Muhammad was the was the sound of his mother. And
she was the only person in the life of wrestlers who remained with him from before from the time he was born. To the time he died was a moment lived after sources and she's the only person in his whole life she was ever seen one lady was a slave was literally freed
and she was in his life.
Everyone else in his life passed away his children died before him except for Fatima to Zara Alana.
Both his parents died his father died before he was born mother died when he was about four or five years old.
His grandfather died in his lifetime. His uncle died or everybody died in his lifetime except my mom, and oh my Monrovia law and
was among the first or the Muslims. And she remained in the life of Rasulullah. Salaam. She knew him she was the only woman, the only person the only human being who knew him from the minute he was born. She held him in her hands when he was born as a newborn baby. And she saw him when he passed away.
So he she was very dirty. He loved her very much he called her roommate he called her my mother.
So he said to her after the journey, he said to her, I went to Jerusalem and came back in the same night.
And she said to him, Yasser Allah, I believe you, but don't tell anyone about that.
The people will not believe you.
As long as I said, I have no discretion this matter. He said, I have to tell them, because my responsibility is to convey and so I will tell them whether they believe it or not.
So he started to tell some people about his journey that he had been to Jerusalem and then in the heavens and back. This news reached Abuja.
So he came, he came running and he said, Yeah, Mohamed Salah Salem, anything new.
What's the WhatsApp
story? He said, This is what happened to me I was taken to Jerusalem and then I was taken into the heavens and and so on. And I came back. I was just said Yeah, Mohammed not
Do me, if I sell I sell a mission if I call the people now here, will you tell them the same story?
said yes, the Abode l was delighted, I would have thought to himself well here is this person, Mohamed Salah Salem, who
has destroyed himself by his own tongue. Right, his credibility will be destroyed just now in by himself
at running, so he was delighted with the story. He called all the people they pay, they came running and they all the coloration and other the gathered and the soloists are seldom drawn the story. He said, I've been to Jerusalem, and back last night, and this happened. The people who were there started clapping and they were falling all over laughing. And they mocked him and so on.
Including, there were some Muslims in that group. They didn't mock and clap and so on. But their faith was shaken, terribly shaken.
Now some of the seasoned travelers.
They asked him all kinds of questions. We weren't really there. What about this? What about that, because these were people were traveling Jerusalem was on the route and these two opened up. So they kept on you know, they asked him this question that question that question. And this wasn't as I was getting hassled by all these questions. When Allah subhanaw taala showed me the masjid of Jerusalem before my eyes.
and he said, I described that Masjid brick by brick.
And they said, he described it accurately.
On his way back from Jerusalem, Brazil, as a result of said that he passed by a caravan of people from Makkah, which had lost one of its Gamble's.
So he called out to them and told by the camel was dilemma he's playing. So he has this perspective from from from high.
So he said, I called out to them and I told them where the camel was,
with where they could not see him because he was in a different dimension, but they heard his voice
as well as I even dissented and I drank some of their water.
So he told them, this, these details, he told the operator about the breaking of the water. And he told them about the loss gamble.
And he told them about which gamble in that caravan was carrying the water.
Then the courage the caravan had not arrived yet, because those are sort of speeding this whole thing was, you know, not something we can conceptualize. But the caravan moving at its own speed, the courage immediately sent out a rider to the caravan, which are not arrived. And they confirmed all the details. Yes, there's what happened.
But despite that, all of this was not enough
for the people to greet and as I mentioned to some of the week, Muslims, they actually stated
they actually, upon stated
when they heard the story, as a result of this event, because it was so difficult for them to believe it. Now we come to a very important part of this whole thing. And that is
people went to oversee the alarm, he was not part of this whole gathering. He didn't know what was happening. He was in his house. Some people went running to him.
And they said, you know, what your what your friend is a
and my friend, Ben mentor, who is also a seller, this was you know, this was not everybody. So this is a Do you know what your friend is saying?
So oversee for the last 10 years 10 What is
this? This? This is what he's saying this they're saying that he's saying that he went on a journey from macabre Jerusalem and then into the heavens and back and so on this one. What do you say?
The answer of a worker Cydia
is the thing that gave him this title of acidic. And also his answer is a classic in the
science of authentication of Hadith.
It became a principle in the way a hadith are authenticated. Our workers
said to them, if he said it, I believe now see this answer. He's not saying I believe,
right? He's not saying that. They said oh, he's saying this is
workers do not say I believe no, because he does not know whether the person communicating this information is speaking the truth or lie.
Because the people are communicating this information to workers, they are not the friend the Versa there is enemies. So it is entirely likely that he never said any such thing these people invented it. And now they have, you know, some new fake news.
But what if Russell Ross said it?
it is by itself, it is very
fantastic, fantastical information. It is very
within quotes, unbelievable. It is very logical, the questions immediate Lee comes in how can a human being fly from point A to point B?
For example, if the same people if they're challenged, this was a settlement, several people standing here now fly from here to here, 10 feet away, would not be able to do it. He would not have done it.
Yet, he's saying I went from this point to this point, almost 1000 mile journey and then I went into the heavens and I came back. It is something which apparently logical reason I'm saying that is many times today, when we hear certain Hadees which Oh, but you know, how could it happen? May Allah protect us from this scope to say this is to deny Allah subhanaw taala is that Allah can make anything he wants to happen.
So oh, gosh, I was answer was, if he said it, I believe meaning that I will authenticate any report coming from and coming about Roswell, Salem, to the extent of did he say this? And if the if the authentication if the answer is yes, he said it, that I will believe it, whether or not I understand it, whether or not within quotes, it makes sense. Whether or not it appears to be logical to me, and so forth.
Later on, somebody asked him How can you believe this?
How can you believe it? How is it possible? He said we have believed things which are apparently within what's even more impossible.
He said for example, we believe in Allah, have you seen Allah?
He said we believe in the Day of Judgment. Have you seen the Day of Judgment? We believe in the Jana and dinar, have you seen the Jana? Have you seen the fire? So it is what is so difficult to believe that when you believe in Allah subhanaw taala, who is the creator and sustainer and the maintainer and the protector of the entire universe, that if he was that he has the power to take one human being from point A to point B and bring it back what's so difficult?
What is difficult, and that's why Islam there is no blind faith, there is faith with evidence, what is the evidence? The evidence is the presence of Allah subhanaw taala when we believe that evidence, and we believe anything to do with Allah subhanho
wa Taala will carry while Allah He was I remember I had to go
