One Mirage serata destra Subhanallah the US Ravi Leyland, min al Masjid Al Haram al mesial AXELA de Baraka Hola Hola, Maria home and Tina in the who posts Amir and Basu Glory be to the one who took his servant Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by night. It took him by night from the circuit mosque, most sacred Masjid to the farthest one. That's a muzzle haram and Maccha to the farthest one middle Uppsala in Jerusalem, who surroundings the surrounding area of Jerusalem as Allah subhanaw taala says called Baraka, how Allah who the surroundings we have blessed, you can imagine I know the surrounding is blessed. What about the center itself? Carla Tabata Kawada Allah so that we may show

00:00:44--> 00:01:25

him some of our signs indeed, he alone is Subhana wa Taala is all hearing all see, brothers and sisters and month of Rajab, usually around this time close to this time, many, many Muslims, they love to commemorate and celebrate one of those magnificent events in the history and the Syrah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And Israel will mirage. The magnificent journey in which the Prophet sallallahu wasallam undertook by the Grace of Allah subhanho wa taala, in a miraculous way, from from from Mazel haram in Makkah into Jerusalem, to lead Salah for the prophets and the Gambia. And then from there, he has sent to the seventh heaven, by the Grace of Allah subhanho wa taala, to

00:01:25--> 00:02:06

meet with his Lord for a special assignment, to receive the five daily prayers, and then came back against Allah Allah wa salam, and that same night that is in seminary, Balestra our Mirage, the Israel, which means the night journey, and in Mirage, the ascension to the heavens, brothers and sisters are low in terms of the date is not necessarily authenticated in the seed of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But the event itself is absolutely authentic. And there many lessons we learn from it, especially in time like ours, as we see what's happening to the same land the Holy Land, in Philistine and in Reza, the attachment that we have as Muslim with that land is unbreakable. Because

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

we believe it's unbreakable. The attachment that Allah subhanho wa Taala he put between Mecca and um towards Jerusalem, and even Jerusalem, the Holy Land and heavens were ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada had all the MBR and agenda and and not all these things, unbreakable. And as Muslims, I believe that. So when we talk about the value of that, that is not really about the piece of land, it's not about the Earth itself, as much as the assignment, the whole, the assignment of divine assignment of Allah subhanho wa Taala to the sacredness of that piece of land. And that place, I want to show you a few things, why this is a very important to the believers, why it's important to the Muslims. Number

00:02:45--> 00:03:02

one, the first thing we think about is this now kind of attachment or this kind of assignment is very symbolic. That journey itself is very symbolic. Like why would Allah subhanho wa Taala take the prophets of Allah Allah wa salam from Mecca to Jerusalem and then go to the seventh heaven, he could have taken him from Mecca straight up there

00:03:04--> 00:03:26

could not be done easily. But that stop on the way to me the divine Subhana wa Tada was on purpose, so that you and I, and for the generations to come to always remember that sacredness of this land is by divine assignment from Allah subhanho wa taala. And that land is very special, and as very significant in our faith, as it is actually in other faiths as well too.

00:03:27--> 00:03:40

We also know number two, that this land as a Muslim I believe Allah Subhana Allah made the holy land as the gate, the gateway to heavens, the gateway to heavens, how so? You see, when the Prophet sallallahu sallam was supposed to be

00:03:41--> 00:03:48

going into the seventh heaven, Allah subhanaw taala brought him and delivered him first to Jerusalem. And from there he went to heavens

00:03:49--> 00:04:14

and the prophets of Allah Salah mentioned to us on the Day of just before the Day of Judgment, when a Salah is Salam comes down, he will come in that land in that area. And he will come from that region. And the prophets, Allah says, He also mentioned to us that on the day, one of the signs of the Day of Judgment, when people are resurrected from their graves, they will all go to the urban Marshal, the land that the congregation where they are going to gather, and that's there in the Holy Land.

00:04:15--> 00:04:48

It is the gateway to heaven. That's why it's so significant in that regard. The third thing, my dear brothers and sisters, is that we believe it hosts the second holiest house of worship for the Muslims as a result also for other people of faith. And Allah the Prophet saw some was asked ya rasool Allah, are you baiting? Who the hell are the Avila like which house of worship was first established on Earth? The prophets of Assam says God, Al Masjid Al haram, the Sacred House of Allah in the Kaaba in Mecca. Then he was asked

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

which one can come second after that? Carl Methoden AXA almancil AXA? He was asked SallAllahu wasallam how far apart in terms

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

of time, he says called Arbor ona Santa for 34 years.

00:05:05--> 00:05:39

So that the dedication of that land to be holy by Allah subhanho wa Taala came from the beginning of time for us as human beings. It's nothing new. It wasn't by a UN Declaration, anybody that claimed it to be sacred because they said so. We believe it was designed and assigned way before the existence of any even people by Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah azza wa jal is the creator, and he has had on what to Allah by His grace and His will and His wisdom, he dedicate whichever he wants to be sacred and otherwise. And if you said so subhanaw taala then I believe that

00:05:41--> 00:05:50

next that land, my dear brothers and sisters, was also the land of many prophets and messengers of Allah azza wa jal, many, many prophets were there.

00:05:51--> 00:06:21

You will find almost every prophet that was mentioned the Quran somehow has some connection with that with that sacred land. Look at the MBR from Musa alayhis salam, the would you have Risa and Yahaya and Ibrahim from before even all this MBR that connection with the Holy Land. So Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed that land with all these righteous people, again, to show significance to that land, and what is supposed to be represented to represent people of faith.

00:06:22--> 00:07:05

And people of a worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala people love to hate those who really care, high character, all of them Gambia under Mursaleen. That's supposed to be what represents over their brothers and sisters. We know that land as well was where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was blessed. And also the land was blessed with his presence there. So Allah Allah wa sallam to lead this Ambia and these prophets in Salah when Allah subhanho wa Taala gave the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the assignment of the five daily prayers and also to Allah His Salah Sam came down to earth again, he led these Ambia and mastery with to Raka. What's the significance of that? It's more like

00:07:05--> 00:07:33

a given a closure statement. Like all these prophets who came from before from before, including the prophets of Bani Israel, all of them now they're handing the baton to the Prophet Muhammad sallahu wa Taala was that Amane because he's now the last one. Here's the last measure. He's going to be put the seal on that on the underline of prophets and messengers. And his message will be the message for all very symbolic gesture that happened in that moment.

00:07:35--> 00:08:14

Are you Salah has Salam will also come down in the region and he will, he will be going there, protecting the whole world and humanity, for me is huge. And Judas will talk about the journey and it will happen in that land. Allah subhanho wa Taala chose these events to happen in the future in that land. And we know which is one of the interesting things Subhanallah is that on that journey when the prophets of Allah Allah wa salam ala, was the center of the Seventh Heaven. One observation. The Prophet SAW was mentioned in the Hadith as he was going from one heaven to the other one, we know there are seven layers of the heavens, from one heaven to the other one, he was

00:08:14--> 00:08:41

meeting prophets and messengers. So he said Salah is seldom there on the first heaven, he met with other mothers Salaam. He met with other mothers. And the second one, I thought was some he's had ISA and ye here. And the third was Yusuf Ali Salam. And then Idris and then Harun, and then moose on the sixth one. On the seventh one year old Rahim Allah his brothers and sisters, have you observed these prophets and Ambia who were there?

00:08:42--> 00:08:44

The majority were from the line of buddy Israel.

00:08:47--> 00:08:53

That divine connection that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has said it will end with Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam from Benny Ismail

00:08:55--> 00:09:09

Ibrahim Allah has it Musa alayhis salam as Muslims we believe that we owe Musa alayhis salam so much. We own so much as Omar. How so? When the prophets of Allah Salam, he met with his Lord, and that journey,

00:09:10--> 00:09:19

Allah subhanho wa Taala signed 50 Salawat 50 daily prayers that you're supposed to be praying 50 daily prayers and you heard it right five zero.

00:09:21--> 00:09:32

And as Mohamed Salah SAMSA semana Wattana we listen and we will be on his way down. Musa RSM stops him. He goes, tell me, what was the assignment? It was 50 Salawat.

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

And Musa RSM says no, no, no, no.

00:09:36--> 00:09:44

You better go back and ask you Lord to make it easy for you because I tried Benny Israel, I tried these people before you. They're difficult to deal with and they're not going to accept that.

00:09:46--> 00:09:55

So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he said shoe, he went back and asked me as I look at the fifth, my lord, can you make it easy on us? And Allah brought it down to 45.

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

And then as he was going down, Musa stops and how was it now? It was

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

hamdulillah the 45

00:10:02--> 00:10:15

He goes, No, that's not enough. You got to go back and ask Allah to make it easier. Because I've tried that people before we but it's rather difficult, they're not going to accept that. So you better go back again. It's a matter of history with Musa alayhis salam

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

they gave him a hard time Subhanallah from that time

00:10:22--> 00:10:36

and they don't listen, that's the thing. No matter how much power you bring to them and how much privilege you give them, this is different. So here's Musa Alessandra, the prophet service and just go back and ask for make it easy and he kept going back and forth. Allah subhana wa that made them five.

00:10:37--> 00:10:45

And as the prophet Sam was going down, he asked Musa alayhis salam Musa just said to him said, that's still too much. Go and ask Allah Subhana Allah to make it less.

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

I'm sure that you guys are already smiling right now says yeah, I wish they were maybe less.

00:10:52--> 00:10:57

But here's the thing. Allah subhanho wa Taala says there five in number 50 in the world.

00:10:59--> 00:11:06

And that was the truth of Allah subhanho wa taala. While Rama and mercy between the prophets and the Gambia, that is the spirit of people of faith.

00:11:08--> 00:11:10

That is the spirit of the people of faith.

00:11:12--> 00:11:16

They looking after each other. They're assisting each other, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:11:17--> 00:11:54

the history of Muslims in the Holy Land is very well known. Yes, proudly, I know that there might be some pockets maybe of black history here and there. And dark history actually, for us to say, that wasn't actually the most pleasant thing for us. But still Subhanallah the majority of what happens there was a blessing, the coexistence of the believers from the very beginning once they received the keys to Jerusalem with their own piccata Brucella Dhanoa. They were able to live there for generations. There was never an issue of different faiths being there. Even when the Crusaders came and they destroyed evidence. Subhanallah and as Salah had Dean came back, he didn't seek revenge

00:11:54--> 00:12:22

from them. He still given the option, you stay here, you follow our rules, and you're more than welcome to stay and worship as you were. You want to create troubles get out of this place, and they for generations to continue. And somehow until the recent time, before colonialism, destroyed everything. The Muslims, the Christians, the Jewish people were living in Philistine in the holy land next to each other, and they spoke the same language. They even had the same culture you could say.

00:12:24--> 00:12:59

But unfortunately, some other people they would come and destroy everything in the name of the subject of faith but is not people of faith are different. And there wasn't a measure that ALLAH SubhanA wa has given Musa alayhis salam nor isa lesser known Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But for us as Muslims, we still believe we have responsibility over that Holy Land and restore peace in the way that Allah subhanaw will be pleased with what other people claim it to be, is not and that is our duty or response that the attachment we have to this land because Allah Subhana Allah made the sacred and it needs to be restored to be sacred again, a whole lot of you heard there was

00:12:59--> 00:13:04

talk for a while I think more than welcome what assignments of University of throw in one of the photo Rahim.

00:13:15--> 00:13:43

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa Salam o Baraka Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira mama bad my dear brothers and sisters, one thing we learn from that journey that the Prophet saw some he undertook and Allah subhanaw brought him all the way up to the seventh tip, to receive the obligation of Salah. You see, the Prophet SAW said we received the obligation of fasting and the car and hug when He was on earth. But for the five daily prayers, ALLAH SubhanA wa has summoned his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:13:44--> 00:14:17

all the way to the seventh heaven, and brought him so close that even Jabril alayhi salam when he asked the Prophet sasm To proceed Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was anxious because he's never been in that place before. And he asked you been Come with me. And up he says, I can't I reached my limit. Allah subhana wa the rod Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a position that is higher than that. And then he gave him that assignment of Salah. And he said there are five in number and there are 50 in reward. Brothers and sisters, this is the value of your five daily prayers.

00:14:19--> 00:14:40

This is the value of the five daily prayers Allah subhanho wa Taala he made you people have faith and Subhanallah it's because of that as a Muslim Ummah as a Muslim or because of the five daily prayers, no matter what we go through, no matter what circumstances that happened to the OMA. They find their way to store their faith and build their community again and again and again.

00:14:42--> 00:14:46

If we stopped making our daily prayers or five daily prayers, we become like everybody else.

00:14:47--> 00:15:00

And that strength that made us strong will disappear. Brothers and sisters, make sure to maintain those five daily prayers. It keeps you strong and keeps you connected to your brothers and sisters around the world as well.

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

Well, and hopefully one of us here in the space for my sincere heart make dua that ALLAH SubhanA will listen to. And Allah will answer their call for the help of our brothers and sisters in Buddhism because May Allah Subhan Allah make it easy for them in order but Allah mean Allah Who Melinda and Fana one finally my alumna in LA Cantera lemon Hakeem hola hola to the full Senate Aqua was entitlements until you I'm Allah but Allah and Allah Malika to saloon Allah Nabhi yeah you Alladhina amanu Sallu alayhi wa sallam Otis Lima la masala he was telling me about a kind of Vienna Muhammad whether it was a big man, what are the Allahu man holla firewall should you not be back in
