The gift and miracle of Al Isra wal Miraj
Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu My mother who want to slowly or dato Sudan Karim Amma Barrett feroza Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. Rubbish Rafi Sati were Sidley Emery, of the family Sani of Coco Lee robina seminarian, today inshallah we will look into the story of rather the gift and the miracle off, Alyssa will marriage that was given to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. In our previous lesson we learned about the prophets on a lot of synonyms journey to a thought if, and remember that it was in the year off sorrow in which there was hosen after husband grief after grief, the first grief being the loss of autonomy, and then the loss of
Khadija rather lower on her. And then the Prophet sallallahu Muslims attempt to find refuge in a thought if but he was harshly refused. In fact, he was physically abused. And that was something that was very difficult upon the Prophet sallallahu sallam. But still, he chose to forgive the people who harmed him in hopes that perhaps in the future, their children will be believers. And it so happened that many years later, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam conquered a thought if after the conquest of Makkah, and many people embraced Islam, and it was from their children that the famous Muhammad even cost him a selfie came about he was from the tribe of setif. They were from a thought
if and Mohammed bin Qasim is the one who conquered the indo Pak subcontinent. He's the one who brought Islam to Sindh. So all the Muslims who are from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, that area, they are two different classes, all of us do, because and if you think about it, it was in fact, the profits of a lot of sense forgiveness, right? Because if he hadn't forgiven the people of a thought, if what would have happened, they would have been finished, the angel of the mountains would have destroyed them finish them. But the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he consciously he decided to forgive those people. And immediately he received no benefit from those people. But eventually what
happened? Islam it spread from there also. Right? So anyway, after this great difficulty, what happened? Allah subhanaw taala brought comfort to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But if it marks the height of difficulty, right in, in the in the mecca near the height of difficulty, because up until now, yes, there was a lot of persecution, a lot of hardship, a lot of pain, but with the loss of obatala, with the loss of a digit of the lower and now the rejection from a thought it was extremely difficult. But remember that after the peak of difficulty, there is most certainly relief. So what happened? Allah subhanaw taala gifted the messenger sallallahu Sallam with the
journey off Alyssa with Mir Lodge, and Islam. What does Islam I mean, Islam literally means a night journey, meaning to travel by night. And this refers to the prophets on a lot of times journey in the nighttime from Makkah to Jerusalem. And this is what is mentioned into little Islam in the first ayah Subhana ledi as sohrabi og de Leyland Milan mustard halloumi Elon Musk general AppStore Allah de Baraka hola who Li Nuria humann, aka Tina in the hobo SME embassy that's upon Allah The Glorified is the one who perfect is the one who took his servant by night, meaning in the nighttime, he made his servant travel from where, from the sacred mosque meaning from Makkah, all the way to muster the
extra which is in Jerusalem. And this entire area Allah says Allah de Baraka hola who its surroundings have been blessed. Why was he taken on this night journey? Lemuria humann I Athena, so that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has shown some of the act of Allah subhanaw taala No, who was Simeon buslee. So we see that in this part of the journey, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was first of all taken from Mecca to Jerusalem. And what was the purpose of this journey?
linaria humann IRA Tina, so that he has shown some of the, some of the great signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is Islam, then Mira Lodge, what does marriage mean marriage is from uhj. Raja, and what does it mean? to ascend to go high, and marriage literally is a means of Ascension means of going up, right rising up. So marriage refers to the journey upwards, upwards were physically meaning from Jerusalem, the prophets of Allah was taken up, up what is above us,
the sky that we see, but the province of the laws and it was taken not just there, but beyond that, above the seven heavens, he was taken above the seven somehow wet. So this refers to mere Lodge. And remember that this was a physical journey in which he was taken up. But it wasn't just physical in the sense that he went up and back. It also proved to be spiritually and emotionally uplifting. Because he thought, if really sad, and the prophets Allah, Allah, Allah, but Allah subhanaw taala, spiritually emotionally uplifted him with this journey as well. And this journey is referred to in sort of the najem right at the beginning of the surah where lost pound artists as well Nakamura who
knows Latin Ohara are in the saddle attell monta in the agenda Toma idiocracy drama, Yoshi Meza Obasanjo, one auto locker door, I mean, it will be in Cobra over there also he saw some of the greatest signs of his Lord. So we see that the journey of marriage, where was it from, from Jerusalem, up to the skies, right up into the skies, into the, into the silhouette. And secondly, we see that in this journey also the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was shown many as, alright, so we see a list of our marriage. It's basically two parts. Islam refers to from Makkah to Jerusalem, and Mira lodger, first two from Jerusalem, up into the Samoa and in both of these parts, what happened the
prophets a lot of them was shown as Alright, he was shown is now remember that before we continue this journey, it was not a dream. Alright, it was not a dream, rather, it was a reality. It occurred in body and soul. Because in these if Allah, Allah says, our electric his servant, you took a servant and that means that he was taken, not just in his dream, but physically he was taken. It was a physical reality. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was shown, you could say parts of labe, right, like, for example, seeing the buraq, seeing the intelligibly going up into the mouth and crossing the doors and meeting the prophets and speaking to the prophets, this is all parts of labe. All
right, and when it comes to labx, remember that the laws of physics do not apply over there. Alright? Because many times when we try to understand the journey of Islamic marriage, we wonder how is it possible that the prophets of Allah suddenly went from Makkah to Jerusalem and back in one night? How, I mean, it takes years and years, you know, to go in outer space, but if the prophets that allows them is crossing this even and back in one night, how is it possible, remember that he was taken into a different realm, a realm of La that is hidden from us. So the laws of physics do not apply over there. So whenever you come across any incident about an Islamic marriage, don't try
to think of it in worldly terms or in in terms that we are acquainted with. All right, it was a journey beyond this world. So when it was a journey beyond this world, then it means that the matters of this world are irrelevant over there. A physics of time of space. They don't apply there. All right. Now, we learn from different bodies, you know, a hadith that are very authentic, that are reported in Bahati and Muslim. We learned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he himself described the journey of Israel with marriage in his own words, all right. In one Hades, for example, which is in Makati. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the roof of my house was made open. So imagine
he's in his house at night and what happens? The roof opens up. And he says, gibreel descended gibreel descended from other reports we learned the prophet SAW the lesson was taken from his house to the Kaaba. All right, and jabril told him to pray to the car Salah over there. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he performed to the cart. And then what happened jabril opened up my chest. Remember that the profits on a lot of times chest was opened once before when? When he was very
Young when he was about four years of age, right now it was opened up again. And jabril washed it with the water of Zamzam. And then he brought the golden tray full of wisdom and belief, meaning there was a container that had a man that had hikma in it. Now, you might wonder, a man in a physical form hikma in a physical form. Now remember, again, this is all part of labor. And when it comes to labor, we're not thinking of it in worldly terms, right? And he poured it in my chest and then he closed it. Now, why is it that the heart of the prophets of Allah Islam was washed over here, it was filled with a man it was filled with hikmah Remember that? When the Prophet said a lot
of times, just was opened, his heart was washed before what was removed from it the portion of shavon it was it was purified.
Now remember that sometimes you wash something in order to clean it. But when something is mean, clean from before, but still, why do you wash it to further clean it? Why for the purpose of adornment? Right. So this time when the Prophet salallahu Slim's heart is washed and filled with a man and hikma. Why was it? So? It was it was prepared, it was purified, it was strengthened, it was fortified for the journey of Islam and marriage. Because you see any person if he's made to see buraq, for example, and buraq travel, that's such a great speed. Any average human being would collapse, right? Just the sight of buraq or just going up and seeing amazing, you know, I add that
would make any average person collapse out of fear, out of shock. But the heart of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was strengthened, it was fortified for this journey, and not just for this journey, but also for the rest of his life. He was as if being prepared for the future for what he was going to witness. Now what happened in a hadith the Muslim the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, I was brought Alba rock. So when he's in Makkah, what happened he performed to the car, His heart is washed. His heart is filled with a man with hikmah. And then the buraq was brought to him. He said, buraq is an animal. It's adapt, but it's a creature. All right, white. So what color is the Bulldog?
White, and long, larger than a donkey but smaller than a mule?
So what does it mean? It looks something like a horse or something like a donkey mule, right? An animal of that category, but different in size, white in color. Now the prophets have a lot of cinnamon this Heidi does, he said that it had wings? No. So the people who say the Prophet went on a winged horse and a mark at this, right? This is something that has no basis. The buraq is not described as a winged horse. It's not even described as a horse. It's described as a creature, an animal, an animal the likes of which do not exist right now. Or the likes of which do not exist on this earth. We have not seen anything like the buraq. Right? And this block the prophets that a lot
of them said it would place his hoof a distance equal to the range of vision.
What does it mean? Just think of it like this. Imagine you're standing outside in a park. You open your eyes, how far can you see? How far does your vision go? It can go really far. Now imagine, the speed of Brock is the speed of vision.
You understand? It's the speed of vision. As quickly as your eyes can see something that is really far away. That is the speed at which block moved.
This is the speed of buraq. All right.
In the Quran, Allah says well lucam Allah tala moon, Allah creates that which you do not know. Well, may Allah Mojo da bica Allahu Allah knows what all he has created. We just know a little bit of the creation and we think that we know a lot. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I mounted it, and I and I was taken to the temple, which temple in vital markers.
And then I tethered it to the ring used by the prophets. So in the prophets, Allah Lawson reached Jerusalem What happened? He tethered the buraq he tied it right. In another Hades, which is an eternity we learned the prophets have a lot of them said when we reached fatal knock this gibreel pointed with his finger causing a crack in Iraq. And then he tied al buraq to it. So whoever did it gibreel did it the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did, both of them were together.
Right, and they tied the buraq
the prophets on a lot of them said, I entered the beta lock this, and I prayed to the card in it, and then came out and gibreel brought me a vessel of wine and a vessel of milk. And I chose the milk. And gibreel said, you have chosen the natural thing in a different Hadees which is a telemovie if you had taken the wind, your oma would have strayed. And then he took me to heaven, to the sky. So what do we see when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam reached beta democritus? What happened? He performed Salah over there, also.
Right? And we learn in different versions in different Hadith that the prophet SAW a lot of sudden when he when he reached there, he found the prophets praying also, he he saw the prophets of Allah over there, and they were also performing the prayer. And he said that when the time of prayer came, I lead them, meaning he let them in prayer. And when I completed the prayer, someone said here is Malik the keeper of hell say Salaam to him. So I turned to him, but he preceded me in Salah.
So what do we see in Jerusalem? What happened? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam prayed to Allah Himself. And then he also led the rest of the prophets in prayer. All right, and then we see the different angels came over there in order to greet him.
What does this symbolize? It symbolizes the prophets of lawlessness, leadership of all mankind. He is the leader of all mankind, by going ahead, as we learned that NSA you duly Adam, what are for her, I will be the leader of the children of Adam, and there is no pride in this meeting. I'm not boasting about this. But this is the this is the fact this is the reality that the prophets of Allah sent him is the leader of all mankind. And this shows that if the prophets of Allah, let all the prophets in prayer, then what about the people of those prophets? Who are they supposed to follow now?
Who are they supposed to follow? Know, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So those who believe in or ees are listening, or those who claim to be the followers of musala Center, or the followers of your heroine center, whoever they may be, if they wish to be rightly guided, who is it that they must follow now? Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because he is the Imam of the mursaleen. He was the Imam, the leader of all the prophets. And if he's the leader of all the prophets, then he's also the leader of all of mankind.
Now, one more thing we see over here, the prophets of the Lord is that when he was taken to Bethel Muftis, what did he do there? He prayed Sunnah. The other prophets also who were made to attend at the masjid at that time, what did they do over there? They prayed Salah were masjidul axon, if you think about it, if the prophets are brought to the beta doctors, could they not have been brought to masjidul? Hello?
Of course, right? The fact that the profits on a lot of them is taken to by democritus. What does it show? The praying invited mark, this is something that we should also strive to do. Right? It is, after all, one of the sacred places, one of the holiest of man's. If the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam was taken there, to perform Salah, than what about us? Should we not strive to go and perform Salah over there?
Now, before we continue, you might wonder how did all the profits come?
How did they go?
Now remember, again, this is alive. And we learn from our heads that the prophets of Allah
when they die,
it's not that their souls come to an end. In fact, even even average people when they died, the soldier not put to sleep. Right? They're either in a state of reward, they are receiving reward or they're being punished. When a person goes away from this life. Where is he in the buzzer?
Right. It's another world where the souls remain until the day of judgment and on the Day of Judgment, what will happen the body and the soul will be united. Right? And then had these we learned that the prophets of Allah, they they pray to Allah after their death. So they are in they continue to worship Allah subhanaw taala even after they have gone from this world. All right. So for the prophets of Allah to be brought to baitul marketers, this is not amazing because Allah subhanaw taala he can do anything. And it's amazing because if you look at the first I have so little so super Hana lady, as sohrabi of the What does it mean by SAP HANA lady so pan, that he is
perfect. He is above me
weakness, any deficiency, any resemblance to the creation.
That is Allah subhanaw taala. The Prime difference, the main difference between us and Allah is that he is Harlech and we are MK Luke, right? He is the Creator and we are the creation and if we just understand this difference, it wouldn't be difficult for us to understand what Allah subhanaw taala can do, that he can execute his will for Allah Lima, you read, he can do whatever he wants. So for him to bring about all the prophets in one place, their soul or body together allow our love However, it's up to him he can do whatever he wants, alright.
So, anyway, the prophet said a lot of it was brought to beta macness to perform sauna and I just wanted clarification at the time when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was taken there, remember, there was no Doom of the rock, alright, because when we think of masjidul axon, right, we think of Dome of the Rock, you know, the the masjid with the golden dome, right? That was constructed years and years and years after Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam All right. Remember that beta mock this masjidul oxa it refers to the sacred site, all right, the the sacred site meaning the entire area, which is haram, just as the karma, all right, the karma is just one building, right, but the area
around it, what is it? The heart of the entire area is sacred? Correct? Which is why when you enter it, then then then then certain rules apply there. No fighting, no killing. All right, everyone's life is sacred. Even the trees are sacred animals are sacred in the sense that you cannot hurt them. Correct. So it's Haram. Likewise, masjidul oxide refers to the entire harem, all right, which is known as the Temple Mount.
All right, the temple mount which is a sacred site in Jerusalem. And if you look at the images of this place, for example, you know, there's the Dome of the Rock in almost in the middle of it, and on one side of it, there is a mosque this Aqsa mosque was also built many years after the Prophet sallallahu Salah Alright, right. And at the time when the province of a lot of fun was made to visit must be the UK so at that time, there was no mustard there.
All right, there was no mustard there. The very sight was sacred. And the prophets Allah Lawson was taken there in order to perform Salah. So you understand, when you think of muscle relaxer, don't think of Dome of the Rock or muscle as it is today. It's the sacred site where he was taken.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, on the night of my ascent to the heaven, meaning of the Israelite Mirage I saw Musa alayhis salaam, who was a tall, brown curly haired men, as if he was one of the men of shinu a tribe and I saw recently Cena who was a man of medium height and moderate complexion inclined to the red and white colors, meaning he was a man who look like you can serve off Caucasian type white, and he also had lancair thick hair. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam didn't just pray with the prophets of Allah He also saw them.
In another Hadith, which is in the Timothy the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, when I was taking on the night of Islam I met Moosa
and the prophets a lot of them described him saying, he was a man who was a thin man, whose hair was as if he was a man from Shinola, meaning curly hair. And he said, I met Teresa of average build.
And I saw Ibrahim and I am the one among his children that most resembles him.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam resemble they brought him and he Salah, a lot meaning in physical appearance.
So anyway, this was Islam. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was after the prayer he was offered a drink, either choose between milk or alcohol. And what is it that the prophets of Allah said and chose?
the Hadees continues, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, then gibreel took me to the sky. Summer. In one narration, he took me by hand, he took me by hand, and up to up into the sky. Now before we continue, remember that though there's one word which is cemap, semi, what is the plural of that? And there is another word which is gender.
Right? Both of these words are often translated as
heavens. All right. Now when you see the word heavens, you need to know which Heaven is
is referring to alright because summer is different and gender is different.
All right, summer is what sky summer literally is good numa aloka for who is summer that which is above you is the summer, which is why in certain context even the ceiling, alright is described as summer.
All right. Now how many summer what are their
sub or semi wet? led Holocaust survivors my weapons please welcome, right one on top of the bluebell pistol layer one thing on top of the other to stack it like for example, you have a stack of plates. Right one on top of the other. Right? Just like that there are several, some are What 1234567? Are these seven layers of different types of air or space? No, we learned that some add a dunia, which is the lowest sky. The first sky is which one, the one which has masabi the one that has stars.
Because the last parameter this hasn't been put on weapons in the summer adonia be masabi. So the sky of this world meaning the sky that we see.
Right, the maximum extent that we can go to in outer space. All right, that is what some adonia that is the first guy.
So we're talking about the known universe, the universe that we know about the space, you know, everything that's beyond us, this galaxy, other galaxies, all of that this is all just some a dounia this is just the first guy
All right, because we as human beings cannot go beyond the first guy.
You understand? Because in this Hadith, we see that jabril then asked the gate of that sky to be opened,
which means that you cannot cross this first sky except through that gate. And if jabril needs permission for that gate to be opened up, then who are we? Can we go beyond it? We cannot. Right? And then the angel over there? He asked jabril Who is it? He said it is jabril who is with you? Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has he been sent for? Yes, he has been sent for he has been called. So then the gate was opened, and the prophets a lot of sediment gibreel they crossed the sky and entered the other one.
So you understand that this, this entire universe that we are aware of this is all part of which guy? It's all beneath the first guy.
All right. So the profits on a lot is that he crossed the first guy. He went above that. And he said that I saw a man who was tall, very tall.
And who was it? He asked to be who is it jabril said greet him. It is your father. Adam Artesia. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam exchanged greetings with him. And Adam said more haben belovedness sila, wannabe asylee
Welcome, or righteous son, and or righteous prophet.
So we see over here that the father of mankind is most fitted to welcome the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the skies. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, then we ascend it to the second sky, meaning we cross that also in the same manner jabril as the door to be opened. He was asked who it was, he answered, Djiboutian who is with you, Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has he been sent for? Yes, he has been sent for the gate was open. And when they crossed, who did the profit or loss and find over there? Or Isa? Are they Cena? And yeah, here it is. Both of them. He met over there. Again. Greetings were exchanged. Both the prophets welcomed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by
saying more haben will ursolic wanna be a solid welcome or righteous brother and or righteous prophet? Why do you think they said righteous brother?
Because all we're prophets All right, and the prophets are all brothers. But if you think about it, other brothers Salaam said, even Son, why? because Adam Edison was the father of mankind. Right? And also if you think about it, are you sorry this isn't your hair Listen, and they were all from the children off off. Okay, well on him but who
not is Mary is how early Ceylon All right. They were from the children of his how early they are Coover and his center.
And who was the other son of Ibrahim Alyssa ismar eagerness to learn and for me, his children came. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So you see they were kind of cousins. They had
The relationship of brotherhood. All right, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was not from among their children.
He said, and if you think about it, he said, Listen, I'm in your heritage and under were chronologically closest to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. Right so after other money center, they're the ones who welcomed him.
He said then I was taken to the third summer, and gibreel asked for the opening of the door. Same thing happened, who are you? It's gibreel who is with you? Where Hamilton a lot is and um has he been sent for he has he has been sent for the gate was opened, and they entered? And who is it that the prophets a lot of sentiment over their use of early seller, and it is in this hadith of Islam that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, use of I met use of who had been given half of beauty,
this person, right and half of beauty he was given. Now what does he mean by he was given half of beauty scholars interpret this in two ways.
One, they say that either the Prophet sallallahu Sallam meant that half of all beauty meaning that that is within the creation.
So imagine all the beautiful creation in one side and the beauty of use of our listener on the other side.
Just imagine how handsome he must have been. And other than that say, that half of beauty meaning half of my beauty,
meaning the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was twice as beautiful, then use of Elisa.
You understand? So anyway, use of our Listen, I'm also welcomed him in the same way, welcome or righteous brother, or righteous prophet. Now if you think about it, you spread Islam as a third one to welcome Hamilton a lot of snow up into Samoa. Right? If you think about it use of Edison and was harmed by his own blood brothers. And what was the prophets autolyzed them facing back in worker even he was being harmed by his own blood relatives? Right. Then the prophets Allah Lawson was taken to the fourth sky, same conversation happened over there. And who did he meet over there? Idris are they his center?
It is our Islam in the Quran.
He is described as what a foreigner who mccannon Alia and we raised him to a high place to a high station, meaning we exalted his status. So it's as if the prophets of Allah Islam is being taught that this is a high status. And look, you are also brought here and you will be taken beyond that.
It is of the profits of a lot of students being given that confidence that he needed, especially after the experience of a thought if right that you have a high station, just as Idris had in fact, your station, your position is even higher than that. So what happened in the prophet SAW a lot of time was taken to the fifth sky. Same conversation occurred. And who is it that he met over there? How Rouen, la sala Haruna Santa Marta welcomed him in the same way. Marhaba and Bill Sala wanted to be a solid, and why Haruna lisanna because her owner is Anna, he was opposed by his own people, people who believed in him when he saw he, they were at the verge of killing him. You know, in the
Quran winner and that who Haruna Listen, have you stopped the Bani Israel from worshiping the calf. But then eventually he gave up because he was afraid that they would kill him.
They would kill him. So he had to kind of give up and he had to wait until musasa would return. So the Prophet salallahu has been comforted. You know, indirectly there's hidden messages over here. Right that Harun was also targeted by his own people. If you are being attacked by your own people, don't worry, Allah will protect you just as Houghton was protected.
Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was taken up to the sixth sin that same conversation happened and who did he meet over there? Moosa Allah, his Sunnah mozarella hustler and musar Listen, I'm also amazing lesson over here because most our listener, you know, he had the second largest oma after the Omar Hamilton Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was harassed. He was given either by his own people.
You know, in the Quran, Allah says, Do not be like those who can Lavina Alamosa Do not be like those who harassed who hurt musante center.
So, in this was also consolation for the profits on Monticello, you feel like you are being harassed by your people. musar lisanna was also harassed by his people. But Allah rescued him and a local rescue YouTube. Then the profits on a lot of fun was taken up to the seventh sky. Seven sky and the gate of the seven sky is being opened for him. Same conversation takes place. And when he enters, who does he find over there? Ibrahim alayhis salam and Ibrahim alayhis salam. He was reclining against the baitul Mahmoud
baitul Mahmoud. What is baitul Mahmoud?
The frequented house the house that is visited frequently, we think that karma is, is visited by many people every day. But based on my mood is visited by even more.
You know why? Because in this hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said,
that there enter into it's 70,000 angels every day, every day 70,000 angels come to visit by tomorrow mode and why why, of course with a visit by tomorrow move to worship Allah subhanaw taala
and they enter never to visit this place again.
What does it mean? That each day
70,000 new angels come
new angels that have never visited beta mode before and that will never visit beta mode again. Why? Because their turn will never come.
So just imagine every single day of existence from the beginning of creation, how many days we got, we don't even know how many years it has been. The number of days is countless, everyday multiply that by 70,000
these are the angels of Allah subhanaw taala so many, and they go to worship Allah subhanaw taala every day.
Allah really does not need our worship. He really does not need our Riba.
So anyway, over here also greetings were exchanged between the prophets of Allah sentiment Ibrahim or his center, and Ibrahim right s&m said more haben. The in the sorry, he said, righteous son, not righteous brother, but righteous son. Why? Because Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was from his descendants.
Now we see that before the prophets, a lot of them came to the seminar.
Where was he in Jerusalem? And what did you do there? He led the prophets in prayer. And then he's taken up to the skies and as he reaches each sky, who does he find their profits that are already waiting for him? As if they're waiting to welcome him up in the summer.
Then what happened? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said I was taken above the seventh heaven to say that I told monta
Sidra to monta.
What is it a lot of Montecito is basically a tree city. Right?
It's a well known tree.
Here, it's known as the hackberry tree, or the honeyberry, European metal or low tree, right? There's different names for it. So this tree is known for its beauty. Right, especially in Arabia was known for its beauty was it was a tall, huge, wide tree. Beautiful, but also very beneficial. Because its berries are sweet. And its leaves are fragrant. In many bodies, we see reference,
you know, the leaves of the low tree of the city, that for instance, the water was infused with the leaves of the low tree, and then the bath was given,
you know, for instance, to a diseased, right.
So we see that the leaves of this tree are also very fragrant. So it's known for its sweet berries, and its fragrant leaves.
And, of course, the sizzle that is up above the six, seven skies, then there is no comparison between that so that and the city that we see over here, all right, because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said citrato monta and monta ha By the way, what does it mean what is from nahi? nahi means stop to stop India is the maximum end of something that the height of something that the final point, the last point of something.
All right, like, for example, the last day of the month, that is it's India, it's that that is where the month has to. And you know, for instance, after the 31st, there will be no 32nd 31st is the India
it's the maximum extent of it, it cannot go beyond it.
Alright, so multi signature monta. What is this, it is the tree that is at the very end, very end, meaning very end of the creation, very end of the creation and how these we learned that everything that is raised up from the earth stops there. What rises from the earth? In the Quran, we learned Allah. Here's our little Kalamata. Yep. Well, I'm going to Solihull, the offer, you know, the doors that we say, the God that we say, the good deeds that we do, they're taken up, right.
They're taken up. So where do they stop at the civil automata? All right, and
Whatever that has to be sent down to the earth originates from here also. All right above this is the house of Allah soprano who
said the automata and the prophets, a lot of them described they said that automata he said its leaves were like, elephant ears. What does it mean? elephant ears? Why is the prophets of lots of giving this description? Huge, round, almost flappy? Right. Huge.
And it's fruit were like big earthenware vessels. I mean, the berries of the low tree are very small, very small. But the berries are the fruit which was undecided of the monta How were they much bigger
and it was covered in the Quran, we learned it yoshua sirata may OSHA when it covered the Sidra, that which covered meaning what covered the Sidra it cannot be described in words.
The prophets have a lot of them said there were colors, such colors that he could not explain.
So that are beyond the spectrum that we are familiar with. All right, colors from beyond this world, beauty that is from beyond this world. And it constantly changed, meaning it wasn't just still, it was as if the colors were changing. In some hobbies, we see some of the scholars that have your own they said it was gold, locusts of gold or butterflies of gold. And it was changing the profits of a lot of sunset it underwent such a change, that none amongst the creation has the power to praise its beauty. So it wasn't just a still boring tree.
It was a tree that was huge magnificient and its beauty and its colors were as if constantly changing.
And then what happened from here, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was taken
for the meeting with Allah subhana wa tada he was taken to a level where no human has ever been because we find from narrations that even gibreel did not go beyond this point. Right. And he was taken above the level of Adam above the level of use of above the level of Ebrahim or the center, right even above the level of debris. He was taken, where no human has ever been.
no human has ever been above all people as if he was being taught his worth his value, near Allah soprano author.
Because you see, being rejected by people is something very difficult, very painful. All of a sudden, you feel like you have no self worth even.
You feel like you have no value at all, especially when people have belted you with stones. They've chased you out of somewhere.
It can it can shatter your confidence. But the prophets of Allah isn't when he's taken up into the skies, and not just beyond the first guy but beyond the seven skies, beyond where it even jabril could go, what does that teach him? His worth? His value near Allah subhanaw taala that your honor does not depend on how people treat you. It does not depend on whether or not they offer you protection they receive you well know you are honorable near Allah soprano.
You wonder how much confidence this journey must have given to the civil law, civil law.
And in the Quran, we learned here for Oh Ha Illa de ma Oh Ha.
That over here, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was given why Allah subhanaw taala spoke to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you see musala cunnamulla who set a cleaver right and that wasn't a mountain.
There was me caught with musala Center. The prophets of Allah center is called for an appointment not to a mountain. But we're above the seven skies and they're Allah spoke to him. Now what exactly happened? A low Arlen, right, a low art and what exactly happened over there? What exact conversation took place? There was no witness. You know, jabril wasn't there. And there was no Companion of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam over there, right? And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam himself did not describe what happened. But there is this famous story about you know, of the words of, of the, of the Shahada
that the prophets a lot is and when he went there, he praised and Glorified Allah soprano authority adhere to the law, he was solo totally bad. And Allah subhanaw taala responded as Santa Monica, you will never be and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wanted to expand that greeting and he said a Santa Marlena winery by the landslide in the I mean, it's a story and it has no basis. No basis whatsoever. In fact, it is completely fabricated, right. So what exact conversation took place there? We don't know. But we see that later on. At one occasion the profits little
policy was asked if he had seen a law and he said neuron under aura Who?
How can I see him? He is new. How can I see him so the Prophet sallallahu sallam, in reality, he did not see a loss penalty, but he spoke to Allah just as Musab al Islam spoke to Allah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam also spoke to Allah. And here it is, that the command for Salah was given.
Initially how many prayers were made obligatory 50 prayers, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the humble servant of Allah. He accepted that command and descended down with it when he reached musar. Listen, I'm sorry, salaam asked him what happened? Right? And then he said, No. 50 is too much go back and ask for a concession. So the prophet SAW the loss and went back for a concession. He got it. He came back Musa said no further concession, further concession, further concession, until the prophet SAW the loves and went back at least five times at least. And then what happened? He came with five prayers. Masada said I'm said go back for a further concession. He said I feel shy.
I feel shy. And what happened? Allah subhanaw taala announced that whoever performs these five prayers, he will be rewarded for 50. But what does it show to us that the fact that 50 prayers were obligated? First, what does that mean? It's as if the purpose of our existence of our day and night is what?
worship Allah subhanaw taala and that is a fact on my own up to dinner. Well, it's entirely up to them.
We see that
after this command of Salah, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he began his descent he was taken down. He also saw gibreel in his original form. In a hadith which is in Muslim mode, we learned
that the Messenger of Allah blossoms are jabril in his true form near zero to monta when he had 600 wings and they were multicolored pearls and rubies falling from his wings.
And another Hades gibreel was wearing a hurdler an outer garment of rough rough fine silk, filling the entire space between the sky and the earth. His feet were like birds, like raindrops on you know on a green leaf or something like that. So just imagine you know water drops on, on on a leaf how beautiful they look how fine they look.
The prophets a lot of Selim said on the night on which I was taken on the night journey, I passed by the hosts on high meaning the angels and gibreel was like a worn mat from his fear of Allah meaning as the drew closer to their arch, what happened gibreel he looked like a worn matte like an old worn matte flattened lifeless, out of fear of a loss of
the profits on a lot of thing was also shown the river of course,
he was also shown
Jenna, he was also shown jahannam he was shown people who are being punished. For example, in a hadith and Muslim Mohammed we learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the night when I was taken for the journey advised by a group of people whose lips were being cut by scissors or fire. I asked Who are they?
I was told they are hot of a
hot lava Florida hottie Who is
the one who lectures The one who addresses people from among the people of the world who would order people to do good, but forget themselves.
Forget themselves. They were being punished so severely. May Allah protect us from that.
In another Hadith we learned on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was taken for review and Jenna. He said that I heard from one side the sound of footsteps and I asked Who is this? What is this? And he was told Heather Bilal Elmo and then this is Bilal the more than the one who gives her that he smelled a beautiful fragrance he asked what is this fragrance, he was told this as a fragrance of the ma[???]a of her daughter, meaning the woman who used to comb the hair of pheromones daughter, because when she believed that our own, he threatened to punish her. She still did not renounce her belief and fit our own. He threw all of her children one by one into the fire and burned them before
her very eyes.
And when her baby, the youngest of them, was thrown was about to be thrown, She hesitated. And that baby spoke and said, Oh my mother Do not hesitate. The punishment of the Hereafter is much worse. So she went ahead, and the prophets are the loudest of them smell the beautiful fragrance of this this noble family engender, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was also shown different nations of the prophets, different nations, some some communities, some women were small, very few people and some were huge when he came
requires a huge gathering. You know, when he saw that he asked Who are these, he was told this is the people off musalla Center. But then there was a large multitude that covered the horizon from one side to the other and he was told these are your people this is your oma. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam returned back to Jerusalem, and he returned with certain gifts. What were those gifts in a hadith and Muslim we learned? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was given three things on the night of Islam. He was given the five prayers.
He was given the concluding verses of Surah Al Baqarah.
And he was also given the good news that anyone from his oma who does not associate partners with Allah,
then his sins will be forgiven, meaning eventually he will be centered in.
Now, what do we see over here? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam is given one command,
a portion of the Quran and the promise, these are the three gifts he was given at marriage.
If you think about it, each command it was sent down, but the command of Salah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was called up to the sky in order to receive that command. Each way jabril brought it down, you know unzila Tenzin, what does it mean, to come down to bring down to send down the war he came down from above, always. But when it comes to the last two, I have sort of bacara the prophets on a lot of snow was called up to receive them
up to receive them, what does this show to us about the importance of salah and the importance of the last two episodes.
They are very important, right? They are very significant.
And the last two hours of sort of Bukhara We also learned from other Hadees that they were sent down also
right from from a treasure trove beneath the throne of a loss of Panthers. Anyway, the fact that the profits or loss of was called up and another occasion the verses were sent down. It shows the importance of these if and this is why in Hades we learned that whoever recites them in the night, then Kapha tahu these ayat will suffice it they will be sufficient for him sufficient for him In what way? First of all, that they will be sufficient to protect him from any danger in that night. And secondly, they will suffice him for a burden of that night, meaning of a person is not able to get up in that night and perform the head job. Still reward will be written for him. Why? Because of
his recitation of these two.
So if you have not developed the habit of reading these at night, start now in Sharla because this is a reward that we don't want to miss out on.
Anyway, the prophets Allah Monson returned with this gift and he also returned with certain messages that Ibrahim Elisa Lam sent and the angels also sent Would you like to know what messages those are? Because there they were for the oma and we are also part of the oma.
The prophets have a lot of sense that I met Ibrahim on the night journey and he said oh Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam say my cell amps to your oma.
So Ibrahim Alayhi Salam sent his salons due to the oma of Mohammed Salah lattice and he didn't say your Sahaba he said Oh, Matthew Rama we are also his oma
and tell them that Jenna has good fertile soil and sweet water. But it is flat.
It is flat, meaning it's empty. So what does it mean? If the soil is perfect, the water is perfect, but it's flat. What does it mean? You need to work on it. Right? And he said it's plantations are Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah Allah, La ilaha illa Allah and Allah Akbar
These are four kalimat that will fill your gym that will make them full and green. And this is a message that Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam sent for us
what about the angels advice? We don't know how to send a filter to Saha
that the prophets on a lot of subset in the night of Israel, whichever group of angels I passed by the SEC to me, la COVID hijama to Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you must do hijama What is hijama? Copic
Copic coughing in another in another Hadees which isn't even magic. The angel said yeah, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Muhammad vilhjalmur tell your mama to do hijama cupping. What is cupping? It's a kind of treatment, right which the prophets analyze and practice and the angels recommended. Okay, angels recommended this treatment. So next time you have a serious issue and even before you have a serious issue, try copying. It's good for you. Angels recommended
When the prophets have a lot of sin returned to Jerusalem, he was taken on the boat off again from Jerusalem back to Makkah. When he returned to Makkah to his home, his bed was still warm.
What does that mean? He was not away for very long. So this entire journey must have taken place in how many Earth minutes, perhaps less than 10 Earth minutes. All right. Now again, remember, we cannot understand how exactly because this was part of the wave, he was taken into the realm of LA. When he returned, he went back to sleep. And the next morning when he woke up, he informed the people about it. And when he did, he was mocked at and they interrogated him to prove it. They asked him prove it, tell us what you saw. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said, when the Quran rejected me, I stood in the huddle. And Allah displayed vital markers before my eyes. So I informed
them of its features as I as if I was looking at it. Because when they began questioning him, he was nervous in the inner Hadees we learned the prophets on a lot of sunset. I, I was very much anxious, so anxious that I had never been like that before. Because imagine if somebody begins to question you one after the other, and they're laughing at you, and whatever he did remember, even he could not fully recall our vital markers. And besides, it was nighttime. Right? So what happened? Allah showed him beta blockers before his eyes of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave them a description and they were speechless. They were silent.
But they made fun of the prophets a lot of sediment, they thought perhaps his closest friends would abandon him now. So they went to about Casa de la de la Noir. And when they said, This is what your friend is saying. He said, If Mohammed Salah cinema said it, I believe in it. He said, what you will believe in it. Even though he's saying something like that. He said, Yes, I believe in something that is even more amazing. He claims that the revelation from the seven heavens come to him instantaneously. So if I can believe in that, I can also believe that he went to Israel and back and marriage and back in one night, and this is when Abubakar below and who was given the title of
acidic. Now the following morning, the same morning what happened gibreel came to the Prophet salallahu salam, and he led the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in five prayers at the right time. And this is reported in behati. Because the hokum of Sadat came, right, so the following morning, jabril came and told the prophets of the laws and when to pray, fudger how much how, when to pray, how many occurred, when to pay us how many laqad when to pray, motive, how many laqad, when to Russia, and how many? So jabril came and he prayed with the prophets that a lot of time to teach him how to follow the command of Allah, how to perform the prayer, and this incident. This was a gift for the
prophets on a lot of a miracle. But it was also a journey that gave him spiritual emotional upliftment gave him the confidence that he needed. And this is what we see that from after this journey, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he continued the Dharma with full
force with this renewed confidence, because Allah subhanaw taala never abandons his servant. There are the deepest, you know, the lowest points, but the one who relies upon Allah, then Allah takes care of his affairs. So panic alone will be handed down to La ilaha illa Anta nesta heruka. One or two will ache a Santa Muerte camara de la Heba barakato
