aleikum wa rahmatullah warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
I welcome you all to episode number 12. Season Two, blast from the past Sierra in the 21st century yesterday, we traversed together through the avenues of lessons that were extrapolated from the colossal Allahu alayhi wa sallam Empire. And
in yesterday's episode, and the episodes before, we have been out of breath, due to the sheer tests that have been falling upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, especially. And we have been out of breath due to the intensity, the intensity of the tests, they haven't been minor tests, they've been major tests, major tests, and all he wanted to do is raise the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala is all wise.
The other day, I could see some wanting to breathe, and I asked you to hold your breath. In previous episodes, I have seen the anxiety on your faces, the tears in your eyes, I've seen attendees lowering their heads, not knowing where to look, feeling, feeling, the difficulty, because we reading through the difficult chapter in the era of our Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But I remind myself, and I remind you all that the one who is in control of everything, Allah subhanho wa Taala loves His Messenger, more than you and I mighty brothers and sisters, more than you and I, Allah loves His Messenger, more than you and I. And indeed, Allah was not punishing His
Messenger. Allah sent His messenger as an icon sent His messenger as an example, a perfect example for you and I, we should be taking heed from this.
But as we have said those episodes, I bring you glad tidings Be glad tidings of us being able to take a few breaths, not just a breath, because today's episode is an episode of not just the ease, but a great ease. And indeed, goodness comes to those who are patient, and goodness comes to those
who never lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala. Today we will discuss the surah and the Mirage, the surah the journey by night from mosquito, Iran to messenger and then El Mirage, which is the ascension to the heavens, and to the seventh heaven, by the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is not just an ease, my dear brothers and sisters. It's a great ease why
Because it is a miracle from the miracles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam number one. Number two, it is a unique gift that Allah gave to only Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. No messenger before him, no prophet before him, got this gift of marriage, no one before him. So I love her and he was suddenly got this gift of mirage. And let me just say, in case you wondering, no one even got anything close to the marriage. This was for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This is for those who pass the great tests. And indeed Allah is always in what Allah subhanho wa Taala does. Remember, we discussed yesterday, you pass the test, great opportunities open for you. It's as if it
says if Allah had this prize for His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but to get this prize, you had to write so many examinations, you had to go through so many tests, the prize was there, but only for those who pass these tests, and the prize is worth it. The prize is mighty. And indeed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was given this mighty prize and this mighty test the gift of marriage, a chance for ease, a chance to remove the burden. The burden of the Porush the burden of the animosity against is the burden of proof the burden of losing a deja vu and the burden of losing his father like figure Ailee Abu Talib, Abu Talib, the burden of the years of boycotts and
sanctioning the burden of seeing Muslims persecuted the burden of having to tell them to leave their families leave their homes, leave makan go to Africa. This was not easy for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we know how he loved Makkah. And you will see when we go through the story of the hegira If Allah makes us rich, the insha Allah, you will see how he turns around to Makkah, and he cries out to Mecca. And he says, indeed, you are beloved to me or MCE, but your people do not want me if it wasn't for your people I would not have left you and here was colossal Allahu alayhi wa sallam has to tell his people to go to Africa to leave beloved Mecca. This was tough. So here comes
a great ease and ease that rejuvenates the spirits and the ease that realigns our focus and this is the ease of israa and
Allah subhanho wa Taala says about the israa Allah says soubor Hannah levy as sohrabi Arabic de la mina GD, our army Elan musk Ed
Mina muskie de la Pramila

Allah subhanho wa Taala says Glory be to Allah, Exalted is Allah indeed it is all about Allah. It is Allah who does and it is a law who takes and it is Allah who is in control. It is Allah who is a summit, the independent, the being upon who everything in creation is dependent upon a summit. Allah says Exalted is He who took his servant by night from message to message Alexa, whose surroundings we have blessed. Yes, yes, oxide is blessed and his surroundings are blessed. May Allah grant us a presence in me. May Allah grant us follow us. Luxor Ameen. May Allah cool our hearts with a visit to messages upside in our lifetime and mean? Allah says that he has blessed the surroundings of
messenger as best he could. And Allah subhanho wa Taala then says to show him meaning to show the messenger from the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala from the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala Indeed, Allah is the old hearing, and Allah is the old see. So this is the evidence of the Surah Surah in the Arabic language refers to the journey by night, the journey by night, and this is raw, this traveling from Mecca to Jerusalem happened at night. This is the effort and the evidence. Now, what is the evidence for the Mirage? The ascension to
In reality, my dear brothers and sisters, they are countless narrations about this era and this marriage
Some have additions. Some have a few points that are mentioned in other narrations not mentioned. In fact, in my humble view, and Allah knows best. The one incident in the Macan period that has the most narrations about it is this is Laura in this marriage, countless nations, but I will share with you today an aeration found in Sahih al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim and an aeration found in the Muslims of Imam Ahmed, as I said, we will only stick to those points that inshallah we will deduce and extrapolate lessons from insha Allah the lessons we will take tomorrow, but let's pay attention to the hadith of nsep. Man, and he reports from so
he reports from melachim and Sasa right, and let's see what this narration says.
that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the Sahaba about his his raw and his Mirage about the special night, the special gift, the special miracle. And he says that he was lying down at the hedgerow at the hedger besides the caravan. And gibreel alayhis salam came to him, descended upon him and cut his chest. Some variations among graphic states that his chest was cut down to the bottom of his belly. sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And after this happened, gibreel went ahead and removed the heart of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, wasallam. And jabril brought a gold vessel foods with what the narration says is faith. It was filled with faith. And he washed this is a literal
translation of your city. Right? We know that Blizzard water is he was used to worship the heart of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he goes ahead and washes the heart of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then he fills the heart with wisdom and fills it with faith. And he places the heart carefully back Of course, into the heart of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to say, and then this buraq this buraq which is a white animal, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes it as smaller than a Mew, but larger than a donkey. And he says it could reach as far as the eye could see. Right as it's I could
see. So Pamela, and this is how quick it was. Right? This is how quick it was as fine as it could see it will reach there immediately. So Han Allah a mighty creation that Allah subhanho wa Taala created. And indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala creates what He wills how he wills when he wills and he's an alcoholic. He is the Creator and he was alcoholic before he even created. So Hannah who was so Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam describes this albayrak he says it was smaller than a mew but much larger than a donkey. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that he mounted it he got onto it. So la Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to say then he sets out with gibreel Allah,
his Salah, and when they reach the first heaven, the nearest heaven jabril, Allah His Salah,
asked for permission to enter.
Because there's gatekeepers to the heavens, and allows laws are in implement are being implemented, and the gatekeepers of the heavens of the paradise they have the instructions, no one gets in until they have a pass. So you must announce who you are. And the previous pass has been set, the angel will know if you are meant to come through here or not. So jabril is someone and the angels asked, right because they are the gatekeepers of the first heaven. So they asked, who is who is here, right? They are asking and jabril answers it is to breathe Allahu Akbar. Imagine this conversation. Eventually we could witness this conversation between the angels that you breathe, and you breathe
response back saying it's gibreel you know, like when a kid not when the kid hears the door knock and from the other side, he goes, who is it? And he has a sound saying it's your father open the door. We obviously we will not say he's a father, you really is, is the mighty angel. He's an angel that Allah raised in rank. And all the angels know that you really is a special Angel. And Allah summons him for the most choices of commands and instructions. So gibreel announces that it is G breed. So the angel says
Who is with you? There's someone with you, who is with you. So you really had to you Sam says that it is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So the angel who manages the gate says, And has he been sent with the message? He is the one who's been sent the message to both the humans and the jinn. Subhan Allah are an amazing point this is right. And jabril answers in the affirmative gibreel answers in the affirmative. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is immediately welcomed in and when the gate was opened gibreel Allah He Salam introduces the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to add him and he Salah to our Father, and the Father of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also, Adam it Salim and Adam alayhis salam welcomes the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and as a father does to his child, Adam alayhis
salam describes Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a righteous son, and a righteous prophet. Allahu Akbar. Remember Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born an orphan. And he was made an orphan again with the passing away of his mother. So imagine how special this was to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is a great ease, the ease of the difficulty of childhood, you know when you don't have your parents here, he is blessed with this ease of being called a righteous self and a righteous prophet. And then they continue their journey to the second heaven, and they reach the second heaven and gibreel alayhi salam asked for permission to enter and the gatekeeper says Who
is there and jabril says it is gibreel and the gatekeeper says who is with you? So gibreel says, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is with me. So the gatekeeper says Is he the one who was sent to mankind and Jean kind of jabril says yes, so the angels open the gates and welcome the angels open the gates and welcome to breathe and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, into the second heaven. You see the angels heard, that allows me to send this this beloved creation of Allah to both mankind and jinn kind this merci to the world's song Allahu alayhi wa sallam, so they are cleverly inquiring
gibreel adding Salam takes Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in and then he introduces him to a few people. He introduces him to Ali Salah. He introduces him to Risa Ali Salim. He introduces him to these profits. And these profits, meet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and as brothers to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they say you are a righteous brother, and you are a righteous prophet. For sutala sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never had any brothers is meeting his family. Another ease, you know, when when a person is a stranger? He didn't know he had a brother until he's very old. And then he finds out. And then he searches and searches until he finds his
brother. Imagine how amazing that reunion is. And imagine how emotional it is to hear another person saying you are my brother. So he hears this from yahia. And he salah and he hears this from
Isa alayhis salam, right. And Allah tells us about you here in Santa Maria. Allah tells us that Allah gave him as a sentence a courier and insulin, and it is Allah who named me. No one before this was in India. So he means he had insulin, and he was reciting Salah. For those who want English names, then we would say john and Jesus, he meets these prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the journey continues to the third heaven, and the same formalities happen at the gate. And when the formalities are over Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam enters and jabril introduces him to Yusuf Ali Salah, the man who had half of beauty and what will make you understand who used to Valley
salon was maybe we need to spend 100 Ramadan here together one day in sha Allah and go through pseudo use of what an amazing surah to learn and to study and to learn from a story in which Allah said look at the camera for use of what if what he is this a lien that indeed in Yusuf and his brothers are signs or lessons or inspirations for those who just ask, we Allah give us life and bring us together inshallah. I mean, some homework for you, brother Roger.
So he meets us to further his Salah, and us welcomes him and also describes him as a righteous brother and a righteous prophet. And then they go to the fourth heaven and the formalities take place at the gate, and after the formalities are open, they are allowed into the fourth heaven. And then gibreel takes Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and introduces him to Prophet Idris and introduces introduces him to Prophet Idris, who welcomes him a great welcome and announces to him that he is a brother, a righteous brother, and a righteous prophet as well.
And then the
journey continues to the fifth heaven upon Allah, and the same formalities happen at the gate and when the formalities are over entrance is granted Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam jabril takes him in and introduces him to Prophet Harun. Allah His Salah, and prophet Harun greets Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and says to him, that you are a righteous brother, and you are a righteous Prophet, and the journey continues to the sixth Heaven, same formalities again, the system is in place and the system of Allah never breaks. The same formalities are in place. And when the formalities are over, they enter into the sixth heaven jabril takes Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam and introduces him to loose Salah. And what will make you understand who moves Ali Salam is Allah gathers with them in gentlemen. I mean, the Honorable al Amin. So Moosa is in the sixth heaven and moose attempts to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and says welcome, righteous brother or describes him as a righteous brother and describes him as a righteous prophet. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed by Musa Musa cried.
This was a different event. Here, Musa wept. And when he was asked why, he said, because a young man, meaning referring to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a young man was sent after me yet his followers will outnumber mine in paradise. So apparently robiola Allah we discussed before, how Rasulullah loved us how he was concerned about us how on his deathbed, he was crying out to Allah Almighty Almighty, my own my own man, my own man. Imagine what this news from Musa did to the heart of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was used for Moosa did to the happiness of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that by chance, he finds out that the owner of Muhammad sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam is going to be the biggest room in Jannah La ilaha illa Allah How can we lose hope in the mercy of Allah My dear brothers and sisters? How can we ever feel that we are beyond the mercy of Allah that we can never be forgiven? By Allah, not only can you be forgiven, but I'm here to tell you that you can be a neighbor to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam even if Allah decrees you die tomorrow and you have spent decades in sinning decades in in not being dutiful to the commands of Allah, I'm telling you don't lose hope in Allah tend to Allah now with sincerity and believe that not only can you get Jenna you can get a house next to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi
wasallam insha Allah, this oma is blessed this ummah is special be prophets knew it was special. We have Lucia Elisa Lam, crying, crying that the young man has been favored by Allah subhanho wa Taala with an oma that will be bigger than the Musashi salah and don't forget, we just discussed the death of a Buddha. And then we discuss the ayah in which a master in Nicoletta demon bapta while Akina La Jolla, de Masha that it is not you who guides who you will but it is a law who guides who Allah subhanho wa Taala wills so as being the biggest oma is because Allah faith as Allah wounds that there will be many believers in this world in Latin
America can I am Bobby Lee Jelani what are the misophonic local ham tarva hola is Arabi
river Allahu Melaka hamdu kulu kulu ya ku gerolamo kulu alania
talk about what entirely
indeed the best place is belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then they went to the seventh heaven, the mightiest heaven, the heaven that has a roof
which is closest to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And in this heaven the formalities are before entering this heaven, the same formalities take place, and when the formalities are over jabril takes Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and introduces him to Ibrahim Alayhi Salam introduces him to Ibrahim alayhis salaam, and Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam meets Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he describes him as a righteous prophet. And he describes him as a righteous
a righteous son, like Adam, it is Salam in the first Heaven, described him as a righteous son Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gets told again, in the seventh heaven, that he's a righteous son, Allahu Akbar. Then the Hadith goes on that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam ascended to Sidra Tillman right which is the farthest to load tree and the sort of la sala la hora de wasallam describes it as a tree which has very large fruits and it has leaves that are like the ears of elephants.
panela and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that he saw four rivers, two were hidden, and two were apparent. The two hidden rivers were in Jenna in paradise. And the two apparent ones were the Nile and the Euphrates, which we know, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam then was shown the character of the heavens known as albedo, or moon, or the frequented house, we know there's angels that visit this house, and once they visit it, they don't visit it again. And this continues every day. So how many angels does Allah subhanho wa Taala have? So hang around. Afterwards, he was offered a cup of wine, not the wine of the dounia, which hurts and intoxicates
the wine of of Paradise, which no one can imagine. He's offered this wine, and he's offered MOOC and he's a cup of milk as well. And he's offered a cup of honey and azula sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chooses milk, he chooses milk and we know even from the dryers, you know, when you when you drive for drinking milk is different to the drive for drinking any other drink.
Right, because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam drank milk, he said, Oh Allah,
bless this drink for us and increase it for us was it in I mean, he he added this, this, this addition to the DA sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and indeed he was taught by Allah Saluki special, my dear brothers and sisters. So he was, he chose milk. And when he did that, he was told that what you have chosen, is what represented the religion of fitrah. The religion of this natural disposition of of incense of the human being of the son of Adam, meaning he chose what represents Islam, which is the religion, which is the religion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his nation and then the head goes on, where Allah gave 50 Salah, 50 Salah to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
and as he comes down with this gift of Salah, he meets Musa and Musa says your nation will not be able to do it, go back to Allah and ask for a decrease and he keeps going back to Allah and the number is decreased by five and then by five and then by five and then by five until it gets to five. And Moosa says Go Go back five is still too much. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is shy, you know, he says no, inshallah, this will, this will be okay, inshallah. He's shy to go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why, because Salah is a gift. It's not a better it was given to him as a gift for us. Allah gifted us he gave our present to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't go back for any further reduction, but he heard a caller saying that the obligation has been decreed and alleviated for the servants of Allah Almighty. And as we find in other narrations that we pray five, but Allah rewards us the reward of 50. So panEuropean Allah, Indeed Allah is upon all Eva. So this is this wrong Hadith in Sahih, Al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. In other narrations, we find that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the next day told his people about this miracle, he told them about it. Like they had eaten mustard.
And then there were groups of people that came about those who quizzed him sarcastically and they said, so all this really happened. And then Wow, all of a sudden, you woke up between us. You woke up amidst us? This is sarcasm. This was one group. The other group, they the Hadith describes him as putting their hands in their head, putting their hands in their head as if to say, what is this blasphemy? What is this madness? What are you talking about? Only mad people say these things. This was another group, right? of people. Right? And,
as usual, there was the group that ridiculous Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in a way, even worse, we find in some narrations that some people told us Allahu alayhi wa sallam Okay, all right, if you went to baitul, Methodist if you went to Al Aqsa describe it for us. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started to describe it until he became a bit confused. So Allah, of course, the Luxor to appear in front of him. And he described it an amazing description to the tea that no one could deny. That's how it was in other narrations, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went forward, and told them even more, and said, By the way, I saw caravans coming back to Makkah, and
they will arrive at this time and this time and this time, you know, eta, expected time of arrival, they will arrive at this time and this time at this time, and they have so many animals, and this particular animal is going to enter Makkah. First, he gave them all these descriptions, but somehow neurobiol Allah, they only became a vicious in the hatred for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they only came even more deeper in the denial of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
This is how it is brothers and sisters.
Now very quickly before we end
Why did Ibrahim Alayhi Salam called Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam righteous and
the reason for that my dear brothers and sisters, is because Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is known as the father of the prophets also, why? I was just telling the sisters this morning in a small lecture that I gave to them about Ibrahim alayhis salam and how amazing he was. Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was so amazing that Allah made every prophet after Ibrahim be linked to Ibrahim via his two sons is married and
every prophet goes back to Ibrahim via his heart, except Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who goes back to Ibrahim via is married and his Salah.
Remember this point by the brothers and sisters, every prophet after Ibrahim goes back to ebrahimian lineage via his half Allah, his Salah,
except Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he goes back to Ibrahim Alayhi Salam via his meriel Allah, his Salah, and he's married and he Salam is known as the father of the Arabs. That's a different discussion, and I touched on it in Episode One in season one of blast from the past. But this is just for your own information. Now brothers and sisters, obviously,
our time has come close to an end. And I know I promised you yesterday that I was going to share you a couple of points from Episode 11.
I asked your permission please, to allow me to postpone those two points to Episode 30 meaning tomorrow's episode, before we start discussing the lessons from the Israel in the Mirage I want to share with you the remaining two points in Sharla from Episode 11. There's a reason why I delayed one of the two points. The second point is a point that Allah blessed me to remember last night and that's what I said when you when when when we have a program that runs as a series when Eli unhemmed we have enough time to contemplate and think and catch up with those things that we have missed. But one of the points or the major point I purposely have deleted because in Sharla the impact of the
lesson is greater. If we delayed it and an umbrella we have in Java tomorrow as a start. We will dive into these lessons with the lighter and I love you for the sake of Allah May Allah bless these words, will Allah bless you all, may Allah accept from us and preserve us in his obedience mean Europe Allah Allah mean sallahu wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Marine wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
