salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:10 --> 00:00:51

handler blood amin salatu salam ala anabaena Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira mama but Welcome back to part two of our Ramadan marathon. The Nine week intensive shout out to Bala code Allah we're going to have two events here are two sessions talking about special events that happened before the month of Ramadan. This event is right now with us is that as a mirage, one of the reasons why we're talking about it right now, because today, and the calendar is actually is Roger the 22nd. And it's usually common and perceived throughout the course of the Muslim community that Islamic marriage is on the 27th of the month project. There is really no

00:00:51 --> 00:01:29

Hadith or no at least duration that is authentic to prove that particular date to be the database for slavery a lot but it's very common practice a very common actually thing among Muslims in the Muslim Muslim community. So that's why I want to bring this issue up because a lot of people will be thinking about it. A lot of people will be actually probably maybe celebrating it in one way or another. So we need to study what is it called Mirage? And what it means exactly LSR Mirage the two words that is wrong, one Mirage or a magnificent journey. The word is wrong in the Arabic language world language comes from Islam, which means bass or surah yesterday, which means to travel

00:01:29 --> 00:02:08

throughout the night. So the word Asara is basically travel throughout the night. So the slot is when someone takes a journey throughout the night. El Mirage in the Arabic language, El Mirage is just like ascending a stairs, or stairway. So basically this is called El Mirage. I'm not sure there's an episode on the Quran called marriage as well. So El Mirage is the ascension as of the Prophet saucer, mistaken all the way up to the seventh heaven. So the title of the slide when Mirage comes actually to summarize two events that happen in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in one single night. One we call that Islam, which is the journey that he took from Mecca

00:02:08 --> 00:02:46

all the way to Jerusalem, or constipated Muslim oxa and the other one is called El Mirage. The journey the prophets, Allah ceremony was taken from the Aqsa on Earth, all the way to meet his Lord Khan wattana in the seventh heaven in a manner that suits His Majesty in shallow terracotta, we're gonna discuss the subject of the sovereign arise from different perspective, we're going to talk about the historical aspect of it, we're gonna discuss the meaning and the purpose of it in Sharla, the origin and we're gonna talk about the events, the story of the solid marriage in itself, so that we start with the revelation of sort of Islam, that Allah subhanho wa Taala documenting this events

00:02:46 --> 00:03:33

in the Quran can make a no doubt basically, on the authenticity of the story. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Subhana Allah de SRB Abdi heydon min al Masjid al haram al Masjid Al Aqsa lady Baraka hola who linaria hoomin Tina inna, who is a mineral Busey in this one single ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala documents the event itself and allows us to bring it as a miracle Subhana Allah de Assad Abdi Exalted is He when Allah subhanaw taala speaks about himself Subhana Allah dsrip Abdi basically speaking about miracles of Allah as the agenda He bestows upon his creation, a lady as Ravi Abdi who's upon on what Allah has given to the his his servant up to his servant or slave Muhammad

00:03:33 --> 00:04:13

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Leyland during the night the word destroy comes again during the night Minal Masjid al Haram, from the message, which is the Sacred House of Allah subhanho wa Taala. in Mecca. lol mess is an oxide the farthest Masjid which is basically in terms of unica geographical location for the Arabian Peninsula. It's the farthest spot you could say, in that in that part of the world. I let the Barak know how Allahu Allah subhanho wa Taala speaking about that location, which is the location of the Muslim oxen, whose surroundings we have blessed, the element they say, If Allah subhana wa that has blessed the surroundings of Al Masjid with oxygen. That doesn't mean

00:04:13 --> 00:04:54

just the land of Philistine, actually, it goes all the way out there, even the lands of the Sham, including modern day Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, as far as it goes down south even actually which itself which is northern of the Arabian Peninsula, as as as the book is, of course, you know, there's differences on where the geography goes, but eventually Allah subhanho wa Taala said, He blesses the surroundings. So if the surroundings was blessed, can you imagine that original spot where the Muslim Muslim oxen, or the farthest mosque has been located differently, the Baraka and the blessing is even more and more why he sits down with data in real home in Atlanta, Georgia, he took the

00:04:54 --> 00:05:00

process of that particular journey to show him of our science. Indeed, he is

00:05:00 --> 00:05:13

Hearing the seeing Connaughton that's a documentation of one part of the journey, which is the journey from Jerusalem from Mecca, all the way to Jerusalem. The other part of the journey was documented as sort of the najem, which is going to come with us later in shallow water.

00:05:15 --> 00:05:56

However, before we talk about the story of the soil Mirage, we have to understand the story behind the story. Which means, why would Allah subhanho wa Taala take the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, for Mecca, all over the seventh heaven, to show him special little miracles and give him the obligation of salah and then send him back into Earth. What's the reason behind that? We have to understand the story behind the story, which means the time that preceded the moment when Allah subhanho wa Taala have taken the professor lesson to the survival knowledge also. Why then, why wasn't earlier. Why wasn't later in the life of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam, what was the

00:05:56 --> 00:06:31

significance of sending the Prophet sallallahu Sallam on that journey on that particular time of his mission and lifetime sort of La Hollywood system. To understand this, we have to go back again to study the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, at least during the time when he became a prophet. So the word love ceremony, the timeline of his method, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So let's talk about this shall as well going all the way back from the first revelation. When Allah subhana wa Taala sent this first revelation to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, because Allah read in the name of you read in the name of view, or recite in the name of your Lord who created that's the

00:06:31 --> 00:06:55

first revelation. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was made. Now, when he was commissioned for the message to go and deliver the message to the world, he did. So a lot of us and for the first three years, in private, meaning he wasn't yet given the permission, he was not given the command to go and publicize his Dharma, and going to speak openly about it. Instead, he was asked to go and invite people on an individual level.

00:06:57 --> 00:07:30

So he was going from one place to another, another person from one person to another person, and tried to invite him to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Obviously, of course, in working it out, like that, not so many people will accept the message that the message, but among those who accept the message of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, a lot of them were the weak and the destitute and those who don't have the privilege of the elite of courage. So a lot of them when the news was spreading that Mohammed Salah Salem was starting something new in that in that society, not so many people paid attention to because it wouldn't bother them much until you start affecting their own households.

00:07:31 --> 00:08:00

When their children start becoming Muslims, when some of them their wives became Muslims, their slaves became Muslims. That's when people start getting Okay, so what's going on here? So three years, the prophet SAW someone's making the doll and giving the Dhamma in privately when Allah subhanho wa Taala gave the professor some the command and the order to go and publicize the data. And that was a time when, ironically, two of the most of the strongest people of Mecca became Muslim, Hamza de la noir de his uncle, and also

00:08:01 --> 00:08:36

on the command came the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to take the public right now. So he went out public, Allah azza wa jal given the command we're under Article ultrabeat, you go and proclaim your message to ashira, which means the closest kin so he went out sallallahu wasallam on the pulpit that was very famous in the Arabian Peninsula in Mexico in particular, we know it today as the mountain of suffer the same mountain that when you guys go to Hajj, and you start, you know, going on that journey between a safari miroir, the exact same mountain, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he stood there, which was a common practice in the Arabian Peninsula and Mecca. If someone wants to say

00:08:36 --> 00:09:10

something important. He would go and stand on the sofa, calling people to come to the professor's calling the people, while sabaha the cryo vote like he won't enemas if there is water coming their way. They all gathered because they knew who he was. He was a surgical me the truthful, the trustworthy man. So when you call them in and they all came around the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he told the matter colonna what do you what would you say if I tell you there is a mount there's an army coming to fight you coming to invade the city, from behind these, these hills, this kilometer of knowledge Academy, we never experienced any life from you. He said, Well, I want to tell you that

00:09:10 --> 00:09:49

I am the messenger of Allah to you, and that there is no God but Allah and the Messenger of Allah, of course, obviously, they deny the message of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he was pulled down from there salatu wa salam O Allah. And then for the next four years, the Dow was made public, but it wasn't easy. It was not easy. It was done. During those four years, we've heard about the stories of people being tortured, being imprisoned, and being some of them were killed Luxor mania, for the law of the land. Hahaha. And it's during those years as well. We hear when we know about the Sahaba being given their permission to flee and to leave Mecca. So the first wave of emigrants from the

00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

mystery of Mecca Muslims, they actually migrated from Mecca, they went to a senior they went across the sea to Africa, and they went to the senior they lived under the rule of a Christian

00:10:00 --> 00:10:39

King, because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told them, You go there because I know this man, no one will be oppressed under his rule. So they went and they lived there in safety for many, many years, until they came back to Medina when the Prophet Salah Salem was already there. So they did that for four years, the Arabs, they tried everything possible to stop the growth of the Muslim community and the growth of the DAO of the Prophet Salah Salem, they failed. Finally, they took a very radical, radical procedure, which was not usual to them, specifically the tribal system, when you're supposed to be supporting each other and supporting your relatives and your loved ones and so on. That was

00:10:39 --> 00:11:22

something completely radical for them to do. So they did what is known to us as El Mercado, which is the boycott and that boycott, they they deliberately bought the called the other tribes of orange in Mecca, they sign among themselves, a treatise among themselves actually attacked, that they would not trade with venom, Hashem, the family of the Prophet, and all his followers, or all their visit relatives, Muslims and non Muslims, they want to put some pressure on the community, and on his own tribe and his own family. So they boycott them for three years, three years, they put them in what we call it today, a concentration camp, they put him in a valley. So they took all the all the

00:11:22 --> 00:12:02

luggage, all their belongings, and they lived there in tents for three years. Now, it wasn't one day, it was not a month or two, it was three years, they lived in such terrible conditions. To show you how harsh and how hard the situation was. They ate all the leaves of the trees in the in their little animated few in the desert, but they did and Subhanallah when they was over there looking for anything to eat. Sad, and it will cost for the Aloha Toronto water heater rates. And when they when he became the commander of the Muslim, you know, army that conquered Persia, when they when they conquered the main capital of Persia at the time, and he entered the palace and he saw all these all

00:12:02 --> 00:12:39

these goods and all the jewelry and all the food and all the luxury of that life. He started crying. He started crying when I asked him why are you crying this day when people supposed to be happy, supposed to be joyful. He said I remember the day when I was with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he shared with me when we're in that boycott and that concentration camp. He said, I remember, at night, I couldn't sleep because of starvation. So I had to get out and had to look for something to eat. He said one of those nights, I stepped on something that was soft and tender. He said, I bent down I put on my mouth. He said, Well, I swear until this day, I don't even know what was that. Like

00:12:39 --> 00:13:17

whatever that is you just put it in his mouth to satisfy his stomach. And just to feel better. That's all. So that he was saying it. And he was comparing this to the condition of luxury when they conquered the city, the Persian Empire. So during those four years, they were in a very difficult condition, very difficult situation. Then finally, finally, the boycott was over. So that's basically it was almost a total of 10 years that the boycott was over. But when the Prophet sacem came out, of course, obviously, the people of Mecca were defeated, because at some point, they realize this is unfair. This is not just their relatives, so cousins, how could you do that your own

00:13:17 --> 00:13:26

blood, your own family members. So they canceled that time, and they canceled the treaty and they went back again to live dealing with them a normal way. However,

00:13:27 --> 00:14:08

obviously, the expectation is that if they were defeated, at least they would realize okay, fine, let's, let's negotiate let's accept from them. But there was no negotiation. So the prophet SAW some he realized that his people in Mecca still stubborn, and they would not listen, they would not obey, and they would not follow his message. So what do you start doing salatu wa ceremony he was looking around to see where he could go out to find support, if his own people not supporting him. So let me go outside and see where I can get that support from the closest town to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in Mecca was a modern day, if anyone went through Ramadan, you guys probably have seen a five

00:14:08 --> 00:14:51

there. It's on the top of a mountain. One of those unique locations in Durban peninsula and nice beautiful cities of Panama, on the top of that mountain, going all the way up there. It takes a while. Imagine having to go there, just walking and climbing and hiking that mountain to get all the way up to the city of Atlanta Professor Sam did that. And he spent few days and he spent Matter of fact 14 there's a some automatic say 40 days, but in these 14 or 14 days, the professor was asked How was it? He was asked about that experience. When the professor sell him he was asked Has he ever experienced any days harder on him than the days he suffered in a hurt in which he was injured? He

00:14:51 --> 00:14:59

was bleeding. He was hits a lot of asylum. He said there is the days of hard work. The devil was nothing compared to the days I spent enough time

00:15:00 --> 00:15:42

Which means the 10 years he spent in Mecca given Dharma regardless how harsh these 10 years were. They were nothing compared to the few days he spent in 1000 tons of humiliation and suffering. This is how harsh it was on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam adding to this harshest actually the fact that the Prophet Salah Salem right after the end of that boycott, he lost two people, most beloved to him, his beloved wife Khadija, and it's also his uncle, ah, butanna. So he's kind of like given out this hadith and sallallahu wasallam. When he went, he was actually he was chased out with rocks and stones. And as he was leaving, he was bleeding sallallahu wasallam. He Himself, He said

00:15:42 --> 00:16:06

that he went down the mountain, he was running away from the people above, all the way he was trying to go as fast as possible. But he was, as he said, some Muslim in Arabic is a color, but he was taken by the ham, and ham which means the concern, the sorrow, the grief, of what has been going through there and applies Allah, that he was unaware when he was going

00:16:08 --> 00:16:49

off to another continent. I just woke up I just kind of like realized I was way in Karnataka, like far away from where I supposed to be. The Prophet sallallahu sallam, then when he was about to get back to Mecca, then you spread that if they refuse and rejected the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So this is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu ala ceremony, he was very concerned. He wanted to go back again to Mecca. But why was it so difficult for him to go back into Mecca? Because about all of his support against the people of Mecca passed away, and the one who became the leader of benomyl, Hashem the tribe of the prophets, Allah Salaam, was actually Abu lahab. And Abu lahab, his other

00:16:49 --> 00:17:02

uncle, he was obviously the one who was always against him. sallallahu wasallam The moment he became the leader, he just kind of like he wiped his hands off the prophets, Allah salam, and he told the people of courage is yours. I don't care.

00:17:03 --> 00:17:43

And that was harsh. Abu tada we know the position obatala He said, I will never let that go view whatever they do, I will ever stop against them. But I will not have the moment he became the leader. He says that's it. I don't I don't, I don't care about you anymore. You're not part of Russia, basically. Like I don't care about you. So part of the prophets, Allah telemedia has no there is no support. So he stayed in the mountains outside of Mecca, stayed in a mountain outside of Mecca for three days and three nights, negotiating with people in Mecca, trying to find someone who would give him asylum who would give him refuge. Imagine seeking asylum in your own town, in your

00:17:43 --> 00:17:48

own home, and a seeking asylum from your own people.

00:17:49 --> 00:18:26

Imagine how difficult that is for someone who lived in a tribal system, that everything is about the family everything is about that, that support. So the prophets Allah sent me to keep negotiating with people, people, they will tell him, okay, we allow you and however we're gonna have, you're gonna have to give up your your data and your mission. But he will refuse their support, of course, without what he needed unconditional support. After three days and three nights somebody, he gave him the answer. His name was alma mater, M, avian ID, and motonovo. And it was one of the elite of Quraysh as well. And he was one of those people who was very honest and decent. He stands for

00:18:26 --> 00:19:03

justice. So when you hear that Mohammed Abdullah Assad must do the truthful, the honest man is being in trouble like this. He immediately answered his call. And he called his own children. Back in the days they always, you know, get proud of their own decides. So he brought his own kids, this about 10 of them. And he asked them all to be prepared for fighting, which means bring your armors with you. So they brought their swords and their armor, they were getting ready to fight basically. And then he went outside of Mecca. Call on the Prophet so awesome to meet them there. So when they met, he came into the city of Mecca sallallahu wasallam, surrounded by a Muslim community and his

00:19:03 --> 00:19:38

children. And as they were coming through the city, the people of Mecca were kind of like, look at what's going on. What is this site? What's happening? They realize, of course, that a lot of it is given Mohammed Abdullah that shelter and that asylum to bring him back again into Mecca one more time. They were upset with a Muslim and told him that he belongs to me who never touches him. He's going to be fighting against me. So he took him all the way until the Kaaba and he said to the Prophet Salah Salem, it will cost him rashidun go USAF, just go and serve the purposes and he made his stuff and he went back again to his house.

00:19:40 --> 00:19:43

to that moment, we didn't speak about our marriage

00:19:44 --> 00:20:00

but the moment decisive moment that our marriage comes here because what happened is that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he was taken to that journey. We're gonna explain why inshallah Allah, but then when he came back again, he was rejuvenated. He was actually very active like, never have

00:20:00 --> 00:20:43

Unlike nothing, he suffered absolutely nothing. It was for that same year or the year after that the prophet SAW some was given another glimpse of hope, when he had the first meeting with the people of Medina, people of yesterday by the time and two years after that, the Asia took place, and a new era in the history of mankind just started. So what is illustra? Mirage? What What happened there? You see the Mirage just prior to this when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. was, was was actually in his moment when his very low emotional moment of his dad was a lot of a sudden, he needed that glimpse of hope. And that glimpse of hope coming from the prophets Allah Salaam, take being taken into that

00:20:43 --> 00:21:22

into that journey. And we can explain the shallow dialogue, indeed has been the last soldier. The first thing, the first thing we need to discuss is that journey when the prophets are some was taken into such a magnificent journey from Mecca all the way to modern day codes, and informal codes all the way to the seventh heaven meeting is lots of hands on with Allah in a manner that suits His Majesty again, and then coming back again in one single night. In one single night, obviously, in the calculation of our human any human calculation, it's impossible mission, it can never happen like this. I mean, these days, probably you could do going from Mecca to Jerusalem, coming back

00:21:22 --> 00:22:03

again, multiple times, flying back and forth, but to go all the way to the seventh heaven, and come back again, without, you know, feeling any kind of whatever, you know, because of the temperature, the temperature and the pressure and the space, and it's impossible, but obviously, because the last panel made it possible for him, he said, subpanel let the Glory be to Allah azza wa jal, the one who made this possible to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the roadmap, they argue about the essence of that journey, was it a journey that happened by the soul? Or was it just a dream? Or was it a vision, the processes? So what are the true journey that the prophet SAW Sam, he

00:22:03 --> 00:22:18

traveled physically, he was taken physically by body and soul into that journey. The element of course, they have different different opinions. But the man is Senator Jim, Jim, who Rolla Madison ojima, which means the vast majority of uncertainty with Gemma. They believe that that journey

00:22:20 --> 00:22:57

was a miraculous journey, which means the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was taken by soul and body. He was taken by soul and body onto that journey. Otherwise, it wouldn't be actually considered a miracle if it was just a vision. I mean, if it was just a vision that he had seen similar silom or a dreamer, yes, this is also what allows family or if his body was just next to the law, like one of the ratios suggests, and his soul traveled and came back again, what would be so surprising about it? Why would the people of Mecca you know, why would they even have an issue with that in the first place? Why would they argue with the professor said, um, when he came back again, when he told them,

00:22:57 --> 00:23:23

he went on that journey, they wouldn't be a big deal for them. If he said he went, you know, his spirit traveled and came back again, it wouldn't be a big deal. But the essence of that journey was actually an actual physical journey of the Prophet Salah Salem was taken physically, from Mecca all the way to Jerusalem, and miraculously, of course, and from Jerusalem all the way to seventh heaven. And then he was brought back against sallallahu alayhi wasallam. What's the purpose of it? What was the purpose of that journey?

00:23:24 --> 00:24:02

Like we said, the prophet SAW Selim was put into a concentration camp for three years, him and his followers, three years, suffering, starvation, torture, many, many things. panela during that time, the prophets of Assam lost two of the most valuable people to him and during that time, number one is emotional support and digital delta and his wife is the one for all these years she stood with him. She's the one who gave him all the children. So the last time he had solo, except for Ibrahim, so the Prophet Salah Salem, he lost his beloved Khadija, the emotional support when he gets stressed out, you know, from the people outside, he comes back home, there is that woman who would always

00:24:02 --> 00:24:47

support him, always believe in him and always give him that encouragement. So over to LA he was at Imani. So she was gone. Also his uncle obatala that political and tribal support he always needed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam same thing died during that same time they died after they came actually out of that concentration camp. And most of course Allah and historians they say, obviously going through all the episodes of, of being in that, in that came for three years. malnutrition and the lack of course of probably maybe feelings of safety, psychological, physical dehydration, eventually they passed away and they died. So the prophets Allah Selim because of that, he was so so much in

00:24:47 --> 00:24:59

pain, even even how you could they could see it on his face for a reason. For that reason that the people they call that year, they call it the year of the of the sorrow or the amble prison.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:17

The use of solar which means the AMP will listen because the prophet SAW Selim, his vision was actually very clear, very clear to them. But what the significance of that journey, the significance of that journey, the Anima they all agree, it was a way that Allah subhana wa Taala shown the prophet SAW Selim two things. Number one support.

00:25:18 --> 00:25:21

Like it's more like consoling the Prophet salaallah sentiment difficult time.

00:25:22 --> 00:25:27

They're all against you, but alas hassling him, I'll give you the support

00:25:28 --> 00:25:45

in such a difficult time, it's a glimpse of hope for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam number two, it was a signal that was given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you know, you are not responsible for the results, you're only responsible to do your job.

00:25:46 --> 00:26:25

And you're only responsible to do your job, Allah subhana wa Taala, the way he changed he changed the laws of physics to the prophets, Allah made him able to travel so fast, from Mecca to Jerusalem, and then all the way to the seventh heaven, changing all of that Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam you don't worry about, we can change it easily. But they are under the under the test. And the last show the prophet SAW said on that change can happen for means and ways that he would never even calculate which event that happened to the prophets. Allah said that God had this surprise event chain of events in his life. The six young men that he met sallallahu Sallam

00:26:25 --> 00:27:05

That same year, during the hot season who came from yesterday. What do we call it Medina today, these six young men the prophet SAW someone he met them that year. He wasn't counting anything on them. I mean, they are young men, then from far away far away seven days, you know, distance travel distance from Mecca, all the way up up there in the in the desert, and they're not very well known tribe that you could say you could count on them very much, right? No big deal. But Allah subhanaw taala processes that and that hope comes from there on the last panel, Madonna will change events, you know, in a way that you can even come for. So these six young men, whom they receive the death

00:27:05 --> 00:27:15

of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they accepted that our they became now the new group that brought Islam to Medina, the following year, they were 12.

00:27:17 --> 00:27:20

And the total Professor Samir rasulillah, we have a lot of people to come

00:27:21 --> 00:27:57

to know. So we sent with them, Osama bin Ahmed, he gets down over there, hundreds became Muslim. Thereafter, 80 plus people came to me the professor's and during the head season and they told him about a sort of law. We have hundreds waiting for you. Where did he come? Only then he said his civil law salon got their permission from Allah azza wa jal to send the believers to Medina. And then he went out to the water law ceremony and indicated indication that this is not in your hand is in the hands of Allah zosen. So for us, some of us you know, we work so hard we work so hard in trying to bring change in people change in the society change the community in ways that we we

00:27:57 --> 00:28:34

calculate so hard to make it happen. But then what doesn't want to doesn't happen that way we've been calculating for we get depressed, we start feeling you know, down, we think that it's over, it's over, there's nothing can be done. SubhanAllah but we should not be attaching ourselves to the results, we attach ourselves to the effort because the results always in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is a that is a lesson that was given to the prophet SAW said clearly that you're not responsible for the result. You're only responsible to do your part. Only Allah subhana wa Taala can bring this actually, in a way again, considered miraculously. So what happened? Let's talk about the

00:28:34 --> 00:29:08

journey right now to understand the journey and how it happened. The beginning of the journey was when when jabril Allah Islam as the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you know, it was reporting NSR de la and there's another edition of the love, truth and others have reported the story. But one of the narrations was by Anissa de la la noir dancer bokhara Muslim. He said the prophets Allah said and he said that he was in his house. He was in his house and other integration said he was in the harem in Mecca, we're gonna try to consolidate these narrations. So he wasn't as how subtle it was lm sleeping, obviously, feeling, you know, maybe exhausted a little bit down from the situation it was

00:29:09 --> 00:29:14

it was going through right before that. Then he sets a lesson that the house roof open.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:16

And jabril came down.

00:29:18 --> 00:29:32

So when jabril came down, he woke him up home. And the professor was surprised. He woke up because Come Come with me. The Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, he said we're going to just come with me. So he took the profits.

00:29:33 --> 00:29:59

And they took him close. He went with him to the middle haraam basically closed all Kava. There the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said that they put him down on the ground and they open his chest. They pulled his heart out, and they washed it in a wash it in a golden bowl that was brought from agenda with water, some nutrition system, magnesium, so they washed his heart they cleaned it

00:30:00 --> 00:30:40

They fill it with a man and hikma means with the man faith and wisdom, like imagine in that time that we're all what you need is what? To strengthen your Eman. you strengthen yourself in your certainty, right? In its power law, as a human being you get tired, you get exhausted, you reach that moment of compassion fatigue, but he was given a glimpse of hope. And his heart was filled with certainty. And it was filled also with wisdom, how to handle the situations like this. And it was sealed back again. And then he was taking him to that journey. Now, there is an there's a kind of like, some automatic, they thought that this is discrepancy, like How could this happen? Didn't this

00:30:40 --> 00:31:17

happen? This event should have happened with a professor when he was young. When users get the element is actually there is no contradiction here. It could have happened twice. One of them when he was young, and the other one here and said before and Muslim, it's very clear that it happened when the professor was getting ready and prepared to be taken on that journey. Some they say probably to go and undertake a journey like this requires some physical or maybe some certain preparation for it. So that preparation was what he needed. sallallahu wasallam for him to survive on that journey, and also to maximize his benefit from that journey. Salatu was Salam O Allah O

00:31:18 --> 00:31:30

Allah actually, they denied that this event happened such as if it hasn't Rahim, Allah, Allah, and they'll call their yachts. microphylla. But the Hadith is very clear that it did happen on that night with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:31:32 --> 00:32:09

So when the processor son was taken out, then it was the time for them to travel. He was he said to the law salon, he was presented with a white animal, the size of it is between the mule as usual a beggar in the Arabic language, it means the mule and the donkey. So it's not that big, not that small. And it was just like a different, you know, Animal, the professor suddenly mentioned that this animal could take a stride as far as it could see, which means it puts a tube in a position and the word sights ends. Obviously, the thermos so fast, right? And he said was was leaping so fast, until, of course, they covered land so fast so quickly to arrive into Jerusalem. Now, what's the

00:32:09 --> 00:32:51

significance of that event? Again, the LMR, they argue they give it their interpretation, one of them Subhanallah can be seen in our modern time. Obviously, an event like this today for us might not be that any that strange, right? Because we travel a lot. We fly planes we go, we go across land, and oceans and so on. It's no big deal for us. But an event like this will need when it was studied and described back in the days, maybe 100 years ago, no one would ever even try to think or imagine to believe an event like this would happen. But here innovations in our time, and inventions of our time prove that if someone something like human beings can achieve, such as you know,

00:32:52 --> 00:33:22

inventing a plane to fly, can you imagine Allah subhanho wa Taala, the creator of all these things, it would be easy. And somehow one of the things about flying and flying and traveling, it gives people a whole different perspective on this world. And I remember I mentioned maybe a storage parlor. When one one of my dreams I was traveling between two cities. So I could notice when I was sitting in my seat, there was a young man was coming through. And I believe he was around maybe 14 years, 15 years of age. And you could tell it is the first time for him to be on a plane.

00:33:24 --> 00:33:39

He was walking through of course the aisle. He was touching all you know the apartments up the the seats, kind of trying to mess with everything. He didn't even reach your seat yet. But eventually, when he came to sit, apparently his seat was next to me. And I'm like, oh man, that's gonna be a long journey.

00:33:40 --> 00:34:14

You know, someone who's inexperienced, and instead of next to a lot on how he's gonna react to flying, is he gonna be okay, safe nonsense panel. Eventually, that young man who sat next to me he had the window seat. I had the aisle sit across the aisle from us, was a sister and her husband. So his sister says she asked me She goes, sir, do you mind if you switch with him? You know, so you could be close to us? No, not at all. So I wanted to suggest and he goes, No, no, I'm okay. I'm okay. I want to I want to have the window seat. So okay, fine. Okay. She said, Okay, I hope he she asked me, I hope he would invite us in our door. So the guy he doesn't even know how to put this out

00:34:14 --> 00:34:56

to buckle his seatbelt. And so I was helping him assign that I thought I said, Is it your first and he goes, Yeah, he was very excited was his first time flying. And somehow when we flew interestingly, for him, everything that was happening on the journey, was a sight was a memory was something new. So every moment and whatever happens outside the window, he would call me to see like, Oh, my God, look with this. Look over the wings are moving. Oh, come on. It's not my first time. But for him was the first time and when we flew, you can imagine now throughout the journey. Every time he sees a car, or a truck or whatever, he just like wow, they're so tiny while they're so

00:34:56 --> 00:34:59

small. I'm like wondering so panelist, what counts

00:35:00 --> 00:35:24

My mind will lie when I was watching this young man, kind of his excitement and his reactions to an event like this. What came to my mind what happened with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam when he was on the back of that, actually that animal, and as they were flying from Mecca to Jerusalem, I wonder, I wonder how much impact this had on the Prophet salla zmc the wonders of this universe and this creation is such a beautiful journey.

00:35:25 --> 00:36:05

It must be magnificent. I do remember some events that I've seen as we fly over cities and over, you know, the clouds, amazing sites. And I take pictures and video and post them out there. One of the times I remember how was the most beautiful sides, two sides of our two events one time, we were flying over Chicago, and there were clouds and it was at night. The lights from the city you could see to underneath the cloud is just an amazing sight you have the glow of the moon and you have the glow of the light from underneath. It was just like wow, this is unbelievable. And then one time there was from distance you could see a thunderstorm and how the thunderstorm the lightning is power

00:36:05 --> 00:36:43

is coming in the light is so beautiful. And all what comes to my mind Look at this. It was just a matter of couple of hours. Imagine when the prophet SAW someone throughout that journey and magnificent journey, how much again that affected him. Salawat ally was Salama. If you look at these events, you go on to Subhana Allah, La ilaha illa Allah This is so amazing. Imagine when the Prophet Salah Salem was in that very low moment, when he was actually coming after he rented for five. And then he was given that reward to go on a journey like this to lift up his spirits, a lot of light was allamani. So the prophets Allah said, I'm here on the back of this of this animal, and it took

00:36:43 --> 00:36:45

that journey all the way to Jerusalem.

00:36:46 --> 00:37:25

So the journey began and they went to the Luxor or the Jerusalem. Now Allah subhana wa says it will mess you up saw what's the significance of Salah means the far this Masjid again it's it's relative, this is the people of Mecca. We talk about the people of Microsoft the farthest measure to them was Alexa in modern day Jerusalem or vital mandalas. Now the prophets Allah Salam inform us about the Baraka and the blessings of Allah method. So many, many I'm not going to go through the details of this. But one of them when the prophet SAW Sam was asked, Are you messages in a message the Buddha which messages which house of worship was first built on earth? He said the one he says I wasn't the

00:37:25 --> 00:37:57

one in Mecca, which means the Mazel Haram in Mecca the karma, then he was asked Allah Salaam, which which one will came next? He said, I'll mess it up. oxa the one a bit better not this basically in Jerusalem. He was asked how far you know in terms of time, there was between he said 40 years, or by instant, 40 years between the time that one cable was built, and muscle X was but so LMS will access blessing and Barack as a site, because all the way as far as the beginning of humanity and this creation on Earth.

00:37:58 --> 00:38:08

Now what is elemental oxa? Now there's a big misconception, when you ask people to show them a picture like this, and you tell them which one is the metal oxide, they immediately point to which one,

00:38:09 --> 00:38:52

the Golden One because it's fancy. And because it's also Central, this is not always the last one. And when you ask people to focus more, they would say, this building over here LMS, as I say, this is a Muslim. But in essence, I'll measure the oxygen is not just a particular structure. It's the site itself which is surrounded here, this is what they call all together as the site of Al Masjid oxygen. Now, was there a method that was built back then you turn the other MBR before the profit center said I'm on this side? The answer is yes, they were actually in places we were placed there for worship by many many Bambi administra from before the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. So

00:38:52 --> 00:39:28

the boundary is actually larger than the actual structure that today they call them as an axon. Nowadays, most people when they say when they say which one is a metal oxide, they identify this particular building on the side over here to be admitted AXA, but this one is called Cobra to sutra, the Dome of the Rock because it has the rock where, of course the story of our marriage with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he ascended to seventh heaven from that site, that particular site. Now that structure is not very new, it's not very old either. Meaning when we say a new it's not just yesterday or a few years back, but it's also actually goes back all the way to the Romanians

00:39:28 --> 00:39:42

dynasty. It was about a double major and the generous donations took place after that. This one is more more recent actually in terms of you know, timeline, but almost October the Sahara was actually built during the time of Romania which means basically say about

00:39:43 --> 00:39:53

12 or 1300 years ago, it was about obviously again was restored every now and then and was made actually made sure that it's always protected and only been taken care of.

00:39:54 --> 00:39:59

So there is a lot of activity Bartercard for muscle axon and many of them we know that the site is

00:40:00 --> 00:40:37

Self was always the site of many MBL who were sent to peninsula. That was the place of worship for them. A Blizzard very bad. But Panama at some point was also for us. The Muslims was the site, the site of our Qibla our cube that used to be there before the time before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam metadata, the last panel that I gave him, the Qibla to be towards Mecca. Eventually when the Prophet Salah Salem, he worshiped in Mecca, he was always facing that direction and was just north from Mecca. But when he went to Medina two years after he arrived in Medina, Allah subhanaw taala, sent the command to transfer the Qibla from Jerusalem towards the side of El Kaaba in Mecca.

00:40:38 --> 00:41:18

What happened? What is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of the events that were mentioned that Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. There in Mecca, he was received by a group of MBA, not all the MBA animosity, but a group of them BIA amongst them, there was Musa alayhis salam, there was a Salah, some other ambia in which the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he actually led Salah over there, when he led the Salah he in the in the long the ratio of the storable Islamic marriage, they mentioned the subtler setting was given us description of this MBR like I met Lisa, he looks on so and Moosa, he looks on so Ibrahim looks on so so he was given description of them.

00:41:18 --> 00:41:39

Salatu was Salam O Allah. So what was the purpose of sending the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to pray there in Jerusalem are automatically given to petition, one of them that meeting for the Prophet salaallah salam imagine when the Prophet was going through the hardships he was going through? So he was sent to that gathering it just like to give them what support is it like group support?

00:41:40 --> 00:42:19

like is this basically the premises and he went there and that support group he got there and met in Jerusalem, lifted his spirit like, you're not alone. We've been through all of this. Now you're the last messenger you the secret of all is MBR. Like he was being given basically the status of look, all of these profits and MBR came before you. So now you're now going to be the seed of the Prophet and basically, you better be taken care of it very well. He was given that support. So Allah Allah, so that's one thing. The second thing is also since the time of Ibrahim alayhi salam, the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala was kept in line of his heart to Ibrahim, all the way to Venezuela,

00:42:19 --> 00:42:59

including musala ceramidin salesianum. But since now, Allah subhanho wa Taala is taking that torch of guidance from the hand and the line of Benny saw him and he's giving it now to Benny Ismail, the other line of Ibrahim on Instagram, from which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam comes. So like as an indication to transfer that that authority transfer that privilege to transfer that responsibility. The professor was brought all the way there. And he met with a lot of these MBR of benefits, right? When it's really not like you know, that other other nations from before, they had MBA and profits literally amongst themselves. The professor Sam says, I'm the beneficiary they were ruled by

00:42:59 --> 00:43:14

profits, every time a prophet passed away, and other prophet comes, you know, after him, to lead them. So they had many, many prophets. So he met and many of them sort of wanted to live a ceremony again, as an indication that basically all given him what the pledge,

00:43:15 --> 00:43:53

they all given the pledge, so that they all agree on the transfer of that responsibility from the hands of bending sorry, to the hand of Benny smile. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, he took that, and again, this is an interpretation, there is no really one single, you know, reason for that was measured by the prophet sallallahu sallam, or in the Quran, but it's a kind of like indicators are ultimate, they say proudly that was the reason so that to make it easy for people to understand the transfer of the Qibla, from Jerusalem, to the to the Kaaba in Mecca, like the seed was the deal was done, and was seen during that meeting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the

00:43:53 --> 00:44:12

prophet SAW said he came to Jerusalem, he led them in salon. And then after that, the journey before the journey actually was a test he was actually tested by a salon. When he finished the salon before they moved on to the next level of the journey. jabril Alison came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam with two cups.

00:44:13 --> 00:44:57

He gave him one one cup had milk, and the other one had wine. And he said Islam drink, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he went and he grabbed the cup of milk, and he drank the milk. So when he saw that jabril he was pleased by that choice. He was pleased by that you sell hamdulillah I thank Allah for that choice that you made, said because this has been who de la federa you've been guided to the fifth one. The fifth one is the natural inclination, the natural innate in believing in one God and only one subhanho wa Taala. So the professor was guided to this filter, and he said, had you've taken the wine bottle, it was the length of the automatic. If you've taken the wine, that means

00:44:57 --> 00:44:59

you're going to go astray and your people will go straight after you

00:45:00 --> 00:45:05

Whether you have taken the milk, that means how many will be guided, and when people will be guided to.

00:45:08 --> 00:45:18

Then came the second part of the journey, Allah subhanaw taala prepared the Prophet salallahu salam to that particular journey. Now the question that they asked, Why Jerusalem? Why Jerusalem?

00:45:20 --> 00:45:41

The and again, there is no specific Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but multiple narrations can give an interpretation, like some of them are, they say, that you can infer from the Hadith and from the stories is that Jerusalem, it could be actually the gate to the heavens, you know, when there's a portal and the gate to heavens, is most likely actually in Jerusalem.

00:45:43 --> 00:46:13

It's most likely the Holy Land. Why is that because most of the NBA, they come up and down from the region, when he comes out is going to come as a man in Judas in Damascus, she's in a sham that the same area, when the professor said, um, he goes, he's gonna go to the same thing. He went to Mecca, for the juicer, from Joseph to seven, seventh heaven as well. And on the Day of Judgment, there is narrations and the day of judgment when people are resurrected, from their graves, what happens to them, they all gather

00:46:14 --> 00:46:20

in one spot, and then they be lifted up to the seventh heaven. That's why Allah the shamans called out of

00:46:22 --> 00:46:55

the land of congregation, they be congregated, gathered there, and then they will be lifted up to the seventh heaven. So it seems that the Holy Land is actually has that gate. You could say it has that gate and that portal that takes people to the seventh heaven. So probably that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala brought the prophets are what allows that I monitor. Now one of the stories that one of the generations mentioned that when the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he went again, on the back of that animal, would you be nice to them, as they were leaving that rock where they tie the animal was about to be

00:46:56 --> 00:47:31

kind of like, levitating and going up with them. So the professor's point to the says, stay. And it stayed. And since then, has been actually hanging there. That's a very common, very, very famous narration. But actually, there is no, there is no indication to the authenticity of that narration, meaning it's not an authentic story. And that rock that people they talk about, which is the one that you see in this picture over here, you guys see it, it's not really hanging in the in the air, it's just you know, it's attached just like a tongue that is attached to one side on the ground. And it's hollow from underneath.

00:47:32 --> 00:48:10

So it looks like it's hanging and flying, but it's not really flying. And I don't know how many of you have visited the area of the site recently. But if you go there, they've already anchored the sides with actually with beam. So that doesn't scare people and doesn't fall in case there'll be any kind of, you know, events of earthquake and so forth. But so the fact that the idea, the notion that it's actually hanging in the air, it's not hanging in there. Now, it's because of that site, because of the notion, the story about the significance of that rock. That's why when Ben Romania, they came over, they actually they cleaned the site. And they built that building the structure on it over it,

00:48:10 --> 00:48:46

which is the one that we call a cobra to sutra, it is a method as well, too. But people they made it more like a shrine to go and visit that rock on Sunday practice thing, they shouldn't be practicing there. And there is no really any significance for that stone of that rock. And then, because of any special event with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but people took it basically, you know, far from what it's supposed to be. It's only Iraq that actually was there when the prophet SAW Selim he visited. And again, the sight, the notion that jabril he tied that animal to that rock, that's again part of the integration, but there it doesn't give it any specific significance or lot. Then what

00:48:46 --> 00:49:27

happens? They start flying in there, obviously, they're going now into the seventh to the seventh heaven. Obviously, the speed is beyond our imagination. The speed is way beyond our imagination. jabril Of course, you know, being an angel, so easy for him, the prophets, Allah Selim being a human being probably like we said, the preparation he was given prior to that journey, made it easy for him to survive through all these events. So Allah subhana wa tada took the prophet SAW Selim through the seventh heaven, all the way up, and allegedly made them seven. As we mentioned, the Quran, Allah Allah, Allah kasasa Martin woman Artemis loan is Allah who has created seven heavens panna wattana.

00:49:27 --> 00:49:54

So what happened at seven heaven, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Every time he comes to one, heaven, and we form this height, we understand that these heavens are guarded with angels, and also has gatekeepers. Like it's not like an open space where we have to go through as gatekeepers. So in this narration jabril alayhis salaam, he said that they will get to the actual destination the professor said we come to the first to the first heaven and then there will be stopped.

00:49:55 --> 00:49:59

Jabri will take will ask for permission, they say Who is it? So jabril

00:50:00 --> 00:50:20

Sir okay man Mark who's with you gotta Mohammed Abdullah. So the gatekeeper would ask our cut birth was he already sent his he's already been sent to cut an arm. So they allow him to come into, of course the committee for seven and there as they come and obviously it's a whole different realm, the whole different world.

00:50:21 --> 00:51:00

For us we can't comprehend that. It's beyond our comprehension, beyond our understanding, because it's actually a spiritual spiritual realm. We're still living in the, in the physical realm until this day, once you die, and the spirit leaves the body, then it goes into that spiritual realm that will start actually experiencing all these things. So what happened on these on these different levels or layers of the heavens, the prophets Allah Salaam, he described in every single Heaven, he had the same event, which means you be will be stopped, the gatekeeper will ask, and He will give the exact same answer, then he will be allowed. And then upon entering each one of them, he would

00:51:00 --> 00:51:21

meet one navy and one one of them via or the mausoleum and the aroma, they give from the inhalation different variations, some of it some of the nourishes, give different order of where the water will be. But this is the most common order of the MBA as you met them, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the seventh heaven. Number one.

00:51:22 --> 00:51:45

The first heaven was as Mr. Hassan Rasulullah has described Adam, how tall he was, how beautiful he was. And then one of the Scriptures that he was given a lot of he will he gave us is that he was kind of sitting there, or actually standing there by the gate of the first heaven. And his chicken, all the souls are coming in. Chicken, all the souls

00:51:47 --> 00:52:28

and every time he checks one good soul, he would rejoice. And then when another soul comes in is not so good. He kind of like feels sad. This is still again was one of his kids, one of his children. So the province asked to beat Manhattan, who is this? Colorado? Adam, this is Adam. He is the first man basically. And he was kind of like shaking his own children at his Salatu was Salam. Now why would it be in the first seven hours it's very clear, it's the message for all of us that this is the first man and he is now on the first heaven to check every human soul as it comes in, you know to to the throne, then Rasulullah Salah semi sense even more, that's the part of the marriage since more

00:52:28 --> 00:52:52

to the second Heaven, in which he has met Isa and yahia Risa and yeah, cousins. Now why would the professor's me would meet recently Adorama they say the reason why this MBA in particular were mentioned there because they were given messages of the Prophet so the lesson What message would Raisa and moose is and yahia would give the prophets of Allah said what do you guys think?

00:52:55 --> 00:53:11

In regard to his mission, and regards to his message as you go into continue to deliver the message of Allah subhana wa Taala as you face all these difficulties and hardships look at Isa and his cousin Nia what method with the professors and get out of it? What do you guys think?

00:53:15 --> 00:53:45

Like don't feel too bad one of them one of us was killed that almost got killed. Yeah, he was killed and his gut almost killed his dog Listen, we went through a lot I mean, so we can tell you that you're gonna have to be patient with your people one was killed and the other one got almost killed according to our understanding of ACLs on slide number three, use valid Ceylon so the professor describing use it as being

00:53:46 --> 00:54:02

like beautiful as a side of the full moon, so beautiful. So what is the significance of showing the professor showing use of to the prophets of Allah salam, on that level? There the third heaven? What is it the message that was given to the Prophet reuseable? Islam? Yes.

00:54:04 --> 00:54:44

His own siblings, his own brothers, they almost killed them and they all betrayed him like who's betraying you, your uncles, cousins, distant uncles and so on. But this use Valley Sam his own brothers they almost killed him. So it's given other methods the professor said Listen, you need to be patient people they wanted went through and also reminder of the prophet SAW some use of Allah Salaam. He dealt with so many so many trials, like what trials have you gone through a Mohammed compared to the terms of use of an Instagram user was tried with his own people. He was tried being a stranger, he was taken on he was it was a child being Subhanallah slave in slavery in prison. You

00:54:44 --> 00:54:59

name it all kinds of Phaeton including the fitna of what the fitness of wealth, forget about the fitness of the lady, but the fitness of the wealth when he was in prison, and it was was oppressed all these years and now suddenly he was released. What do you expect now when he wasn't

00:55:00 --> 00:55:00


00:55:01 --> 00:55:41

obviously would indulge in the pleasure of this world. But he was still that man that righteous was the duty did not take him some of us did not actually capitalize on it recently set up lots of hypotheses about this sort of phenomenon. mccannon Alia, he was taken to a high station hyrax. The man of the Prophet says that it could he could get with being patient, it is also a consideration. He was the first man ever to use the pen, which means to start documenting. So that's something an indication of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam as well. How do not Moosa siblings, brothers, and they were also you know, another indication to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that listen you can get

00:55:41 --> 00:56:20

support even from your from your brothers, from your siblings from your family. So not all don't lose hope. It's not like the example of use of is just the standard No, you can still have some support even some of them were chosen to become prophet like who Harun was the masala Salaam and obviously masala ceram was a whole different journey different story to meet most Allah. Allah contemplates Musa for us like a support. We're going to see the one when the story of Salah comes in and finally Ibrahim Ali Salaam, I will MBA he's the father of all these prophets. The prophets are semi told the Sahaba ran home, he says, he says I resemble Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam in terms of you

00:56:20 --> 00:56:58

know, features like he looked like him. Why? Because again, he's a descendant of Rahim, Allah His Salaam. So he said he would look like his own forefather Ibrahim Ali Salaam. So what did he see solar cylinder a few things happened. Number one, he saw albedo. On the last panel dimension the crown was elevated. The professor's have described beta moon to be the equivalent. It's the equivalent of the Kaaba, the equivalent of the Kaaba for us on Earth. That's for, for the angels. The equivalent for that for the angels on heavens. Of course, he said some of our solemn

00:56:59 --> 00:57:07

everyday about 70,000 angel will come in to go to do the top off and they leave and they never come back again. What does that mean?

00:57:08 --> 00:57:48

Is the number of the ages is something you could never even you couldn't even comprehend? The answer so many. And when the professor said 70,000, it doesn't mean 70,000. Exactly. It means a lot. A lot of MBA changes have been created every single day. What do they do? A lot of it's a show of glory. The last panel, one of the prophets, I spoke about the angels. He said he saw some of them doing many, many things. Some of them were standing in worship, some of them were in positions of record. Some of them are positional prostration, some of them doing tawaf. Basically, they do a lot of acts of worship and devotion to Allah subhana wa Tada. And they never move from that position.

00:57:49 --> 00:58:30

Since they were created, they were in possession of pseudo record, the entire actually the lifetime. So that tells us about the glory of Allah subhanaw taala. And again, the word of the angel and some of them of course, they live to fulfill certain duties and tasks that Allah subhanaw taala commissioned them for jabril he was seen also by the prophet salla salaam, in his original form, and he described him Salah Salem to be so of course beautiful. And also, he had 600 Jenna 600 wins. And it was so huge in size, at least another generation when the Prophet described them in the first meeting that we saw him in his original form. The first time he met him basically for the during the

00:58:30 --> 00:58:44

time of the revelation. He said so a lot of cylinder he was flying to Halloween, which means like, like some colorful hues coming from his wings as it as it flies. So it's such a beautiful sight. It's amazing. It's magnificent sight. If the Prophet

00:58:45 --> 00:59:01

jabril would extend his wings yesterday, the fop will will completely cover the horizon like his size is so huge on Instagram. He also saw some of our solemn Sidra too. Tillman Taha sirajul monta is a three. So the llama this a lot three,

00:59:03 --> 00:59:25

a lot of the kind of three it is exactly what the prophet says have described its fruit to be huge and beautiful. Also, the size of the leaves the size of the elephant ears gave a specific description to it. So a lot of money. The meaning of Sidra to the moon means the Atmos boundary or the uppermost boundary, which means the last and final frontier, what does that mean?

00:59:26 --> 00:59:36

means everything that comes from above from the earth and from below, you know from the earth and everything from the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. That is the limitation that's the boundary, they don't cross that line.

00:59:37 --> 00:59:59

No angel is allowed to cross that line. No one was allowed to cross that line. This is why it's called Elementor which means the end The end boundary, the end result expressly the Atmos boundary. However, however, even though this is known as the Atmos boundary, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was actually was asked and was requested to cross that boundary.

01:00:00 --> 01:00:39

And to be there, and meet with lots of Hannah Montana. And that shows the status of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, among all the bishop, human beings and even among the prophets in the NBA. It also showed his status sallallahu wasallam. Over over the ages as one, so that was the law, he was the dominant. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he crossed that boundary, the Atmos boundary, and he went to me with the loss of Hannah horchata in a way in a manner that suits His Majesty. During that time, when the Prophet cross that line, he was also able to see an agenda, and he was able to see Johanna, he saw paradise and help sallallahu wasallam and the Hadith of the flower

01:00:39 --> 01:01:18

Mirage given the professor said he was given description of gender, and was also given he was given us a description of Johanna what he had seen there several of you saw what happened to the people who consumed ribbon unusually, those who commit adultery, those who do so and so, so many other descriptions of the people of Ghana, and also give some description about Jenna salada setup. So he mentioned that he so rivers, the rivers come from underneath, all the way down, and he says four of the Four Rivers, two of them said about the lava ceremony he named actually rivers from from from a dounia which is different and Nile River. How is that a lot of data but we know the Prophet has

01:01:18 --> 01:01:21

mentioned that he's not actually going to be in Elgin.

01:01:23 --> 01:02:02

When the Prophet clsm crossed that boundary, that Atmos boundary and he went to me this last panel what Allah Allah described that instead of the najem, father to Alison Madonna fetta della Akan acaba, Cassini Edina Folha de la vida Hema ohama credible for Abu Mara, ever tomorrow No Allah Mara and then add continue to speak about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam you know journey and position before his last panel. What are a lot of decisions this ayah then he approached and he descended which means he came co so close for Cana Cava co signing our dinner and was at a distance of two bolens or nearer again we will talk about distance to Allah subhana wa Taala with there is no

01:02:02 --> 01:02:09

attribution of distance or space. But this is in a manner that suits His Majesty subhanho wa Taala Anna we don't know how

01:02:10 --> 01:02:50

elaborate the Hema Oh Ha. Then Allah has revealed to the servant Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, what he revealed marketable for Tamara, the heart did not lie about what it's so now the other man argue about the interpretation of this. Did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam see his Lord subhanho wa Taala did he see him with the sight of his eyes? Allah subhana wa Taala says in the Quran, led to three cool upside. Another is his lateral called upside the upside which means the sight of the eyes will never be able to comprehend his beautiful panorama. And it's magnificent. So for that, to say no he didn't. And also in the narration, the Hadith, the authentic Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu

01:02:50 --> 01:02:53

alayhi wa sallam was asked Yasser Allah

01:02:55 --> 01:03:18

As matter of fact she was asked about his last panel Madonna. She said I asked him the same question and he said Carla neuron and Nora, I only saw I only saw that the screen of light. Basically the the beauty of Allah subhana wa Taala the magnificence of Allah azza wa jal is been screened from this creation with the screen of light. Now we don't know of course you

01:03:20 --> 01:03:47

how it looked because the professor said he said I only was able to see light that's it. I only saw the light and of course the light adjust the screen that screen the loss of Hannah Montana again Amanda says his majesty from this creation the prophet SAW Some said I came very close, it was ordered to come very close and so close to the extent that he was able to hear he was able to hear the writings of the pen as he was writing all the decrees of Allah subhana wa Tada.

01:03:48 --> 01:03:51

What did the professor's have received from Allah azza wa jal

01:03:52 --> 01:04:01

among the things he received one particular command and that order that command is a very, very, very special command asala

01:04:02 --> 01:04:27

I know for us today when we talk about Salah it becomes unfortunately like a cliche, like yeah, we know how important Salah is and so on. But no one can really comprehend the importance and the significance of Salah if you don't pay attention to how Salah the five daily prayers, how are they revealed? You see when it comes to Hajj, fasting Ramadan, given Zika all these obligations were sent to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he was on Earth.

01:04:29 --> 01:04:45

When it comes to a solid five daily prayers, Allah subhanho wa Taala commissioned the prophets Allah sent him all the way summon them all the way to appear before him again in a manner that is His Majesty. To give him that particular command, a very special command. That's number one. Number two.

01:04:46 --> 01:04:59

Why would why was the professor Sam given us a lot in that time? Because what was he going through before he was taken all the way up on that journey? He was going through all these all these feelings of sorrow and grief and sadness

01:05:00 --> 01:05:29

And hardship dealing with the people who rejected him. So the law solemn, and he was he was expelled out harshly from the city of five. She was going through a lot sallallahu wasallam. So Allah azza wa jal has given him this command of the five daily prayers says you need you need peace and tranquility. They would like to find strength and power in terms of difficulty, then a sudden, that's what law says Happy to Allah, Allah. Allah says, been to the care of this salon

01:05:30 --> 01:05:38

to take care of this salon, this is half the answer, which means preserve the sanctity of your salon. Don't mess it up.

01:05:39 --> 01:06:09

Don't mess it up. Make sure that you maintain a solid daily, I maintain your Salah regularly, Allah has asked me how I feel like if you take care of your Salah, allow him to kill you. That's what it means. So it was a message to us all. And through the prophet sallallahu Sallam if Allah summon the Prophet says, I'm all the way, the seventh heaven in order to give him the message about the five daily prayers, then definitely, it has that great significance. So what happened Allah subhanho the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that the 50 Salawat

01:06:10 --> 01:06:51

and the Prophet did not even argue with a large surgeon. He went down on his way down, he was taught by masala Salah, mela bliss masala surgeon. He said what are the last pantalla give you? He said he gave me 50 Salawat. He told him I have tried that people from before you and they will not be able to make it. It has Allah, Allah go and ask Allah to make it easy for you. I mean the property I thought that so I can do that. So he went all the way up and asked Allah Subhana Allah Almighty, Allah make it easy for them. So Allah made them 45 kilowatt, and he went down again to Musa Musa stopped him again. He told him what happens is 4500

01:06:52 --> 01:06:57

but he told him this is too much I've tried when you slide up will not be able to make it.

01:06:58 --> 01:07:12

He asked he said go back and ask a lot to make it easier. He went back again and made it 14 and 35 and then went to 2530 to 25. And then all the way down until became five all of this moves us helping the professor some throughout the process.

01:07:14 --> 01:07:27

Moosa was up with the professors and throw the hammer imagine how many nowadays we can still build up from each other right? Most ally Sam, when he came down with the obligation five mussatto, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam still a lot.

01:07:29 --> 01:07:33

Most of the other properties is still a lot and I'm sure if I asked you the question now do you guys think factor pressures too much?

01:07:35 --> 01:07:36

is too much.

01:07:37 --> 01:07:40

Required right? Like we'll leave it to Musa

01:07:42 --> 01:07:43

Musa alayhis salam said it's too much.

01:07:45 --> 01:08:16

So the Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam felt ashamed or shy basically being going back and forth too much of Allah, then Allah azza wa jal sent his decree and Allah says Kalia Hampson, when it comes sooner or later, it's going to be five number 50 and reward might even look odd. That that's it it's going to be it's going to be the case is already created and will never be altered or change. Five developers so my dear brothers and sisters, the entire significance of the story of the flower Mirage goes all the way back to this.

01:08:18 --> 01:08:29

It goes all the way back to this the salaat Ramadan is coming. I wonder how many of us will maintain the five daily prayers caring about Allah and inshallah more than a thorough a

01:08:30 --> 01:08:35

lot of people I don't anticipate they come for the Torah we accommodate for Russia and etc.

01:08:36 --> 01:08:40

And then they spend the night you know, praying to hygiene and then they miss the skips or the fidget because they're too tired.

01:08:41 --> 01:09:20

is Emma the five daily prayers, the five daily prayers, Allah spanners, commands, you have to maintain these five daily prayers because differently it's very significant. Imagine the whole journey was all about a salon to bring the professor to tournament salon that's it. In time like his when he's going through a lot of hardship and difficulty Allah telling him your peace and tranquility will be found in salon so maintain the five developers, the professors and receive the command from Allah azza wa jal and he was all the way down on the way down the road on the way back to Mecca Rasulullah Salah Salem he went straight to Jerusalem first. He also again made the MBR

01:09:20 --> 01:09:59

again he gave the took the blood from them, and he went all the way back to Mecca on his way back to Mecca. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentioned something that happened. Among the thing that few event an incident that happened he said that he saw a caravan that was coming from a sham for kurush and he noticed that they they lost a camel they lost a camera they were looking for that camel and at some point they will find that camel anyway. So when the when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he arrived the next day in the morning you can obviously expect the Prophet Salah Salem to wake up so energized right? Imagine the status the situation he was going through the day before. Such

01:10:00 --> 01:10:36

Right now when it comes when it comes back from that journey, how is it going to be rejuvenated? How is this spirit is going to look like? Nothing will stop against some sort of water loss. That's it. His yaqeen has served his faith and it's at the top you can even imagine. So when he came out of a lot of asylum, even a Buddha, he noticed that like, wow, he's different. And he asked him says, What's new? Like, what's new in your life? Mohammed, and the professor Sam told him, he says, last night, I went to Jerusalem and then I went to the seventh heaven and I came back again. Now Buddha, when he heard that he was like, I got him.

01:10:37 --> 01:11:11

I got him. He said, Are you willing to say that to the people? He said, of course, I want the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He was brought there, by all means close to the Kaaba, and people, they start gathering. A Buddha was calling the people come, come and hear him. This is what he's saying right now. And he said, What is that he went to, he traveled to Jerusalem, he came back again. And he went to the seventh heaven and came back against a lot of asylum. A lot of these people. Of course, there are some of them. Some of these people just like were astonished. And even there were, there were some reports mentioned that some people who embraced Islam and they still they're weak in

01:11:11 --> 01:11:44

their Eman, they returned back to the Kufa and died actually out of Kufa. But so Pamela, the people, they said, okay, we were there in Jerusalem last season, tell us how it looked like. So he started describing it to them, so a lot of a sudden, but then he got stuck on certain areas. kind of look, I mean, I was kind of like feeling troubled with that. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, raised the foundation raised the city of Jerusalem up to him, in a way he could see it, and describe it to them as if he's there. sallallahu wasallam?

01:11:45 --> 01:11:52

Obviously, back in the days when he used to this, this sort of this Heidi would say, like how possible that could be right? Today we call Google Earth.

01:11:53 --> 01:12:27

It's a virtual tour somehow, like if humans could do that. Can you imagine the one who creates humans couldn't be make it possible to the professor's and to see that easily. So he saw what he was describing. It's the last time even told them by the way, you have a caravan coming up soon. And they lost the camera on such and such area. You asked them and they will let you know, because I saw them on on my way back to Mecca. And when that caravan came, and they asked them, they actually they gave the affirmative, it's true. We lost the cabin and such and such area. And then we found, how could you even bring the news to them unless you sell them during that journey at night.

01:12:28 --> 01:13:00

So sort of La has sort of lost sell on the news spread all the way until because also, the worker suddenly was told, have you heard what you understand? I mean, we talked about him coming, you know, receiving revelation, and so on. So now he's saying he goes to Jerusalem and come back again, it took us It takes us months to go back and forth. And now he's saying in one night, he said Salalah sama, significant statement. There wasn't present there when he when he heard from the Prophet yet, but he told the person who brought them the news. He says, God, Allah and Allah ha, pocket sadhak. He said, you know, what if he said that I believe in

01:13:02 --> 01:13:35

like he said, he didn't say I believe him. Now he said, if it's true, like it's it's obviously it's something you know, out of the ordinary, right? It's not easy to believe it. But he said to me, said if it's true, what you're saying that he said that, then I believe it. Like I don't even have to confirm with him but if he said it, I believe in. He was a How could you believe something like this. He said, I believe in bringing me the hub of a sama, he brings the news, the revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala, from from seven, from seven above seven heaven, and he brings it to me over here. You don't want me to believe in his journey to go to Jerusalem and come back again. That's

01:13:35 --> 01:13:56

easier for me. So when the prophet SAW some he wanted to work as soon as he went to confirm with Rasulullah sallallahu, ala, everything the Prophet used to say our Casa de casa, so that that's true. So that I believe, so that I believe so Allah is gonna keep saying, I believe I believe our Casa de las, as I said, this is over

01:13:58 --> 01:13:58


01:13:59 --> 01:14:08

a day, which means the man the one who always you know, he's a true, the true believer. That's what it means. So for that work, so do cut his title, malice upon to make it a little bit odd. I mean,

01:14:09 --> 01:14:53

obviously, the days after, the professor said lamb was in a spirit that, you know, Paula, it's a completely different level. Few days before he felt down. Everybody was against, he was rejected by even the his own people, his own uncle, and even eventually, when they export them out of the city's civil law settlement, they made him bleed as he was walking and he was running away from them. So the water law ceremony, and now a few days later, he was being given a reward such as a journey like this, to lift his spirits sallallahu wasallam. And obviously, when he started continues down with the law ceremony, it was actually a stronger and a better spirit. Only then, that same year, the

01:14:53 --> 01:14:59

Prophet sallallahu wasallam he goes to Hajj and as he was given down to all the people there and obviously his spirit is so strong

01:15:00 --> 01:15:40

No one was able to stop him anymore. No one was able to stop him anymore. Like whatever pressure they put on him, it doesn't matter, not anymore. Because imagine his level of emotion and your feelings are different now. Is that the highest level so what low ceremony, sort of pseudo law is sallallahu wasallam. He met six people, these six people very young, obviously, in the calculation of that time, what six young men would do against all the powerful tribes of Arabian peninsula, but it gave them down this view, they came from a city, a town called yathrib. Just today and Madina munawwara. They came from the under profit didn't didn't calculate much or didn't count much on

01:15:40 --> 01:15:48

them. He gave them down, they became Muslims. And then they left. He just forgot about salado center for an entire year.

01:15:50 --> 01:16:33

The year later, when the prophet SAW some went to Hajj again, to give his data to the people in the tribes. He meets some of those young men. And a secret meeting with him. They told him about a sort of law. We had 10s of people brought the Muslims and they brought 12 of them with that journey. So the broader 12 of the law around him all down. And then the Prophet he said he took an apprenticeship. This is a golden opportunity now. Allah has given him hope. So he sent with them most of them in our mind. And in one year, most of comes back with 80 plus people, Muslims for that head season, and hundreds more waiting for them. In El Medina. That's when the Prophet sallahu wa

01:16:33 --> 01:17:14

sallam, he knew that that was a destination for him. So with the permission from Allah azza wa jal, he calls people to go back and travel to and start migrating to Medina. And then he did sallallahu wasallam, and the new era of human you know, humanity and mankind's history was open. All of this as we can see, Allah subhanho wa Taala brought an Islamic knowledge for the prophet SAW them to teach him a lesson, that you are not responsible for the results. Like you've been working your your book is so hard in your data for 10 years in Mecca, he almost lost hope, almost lost hope that Allah azza wa jal renewed his hopes a lot of asylum would that magnificent journey to teach him where hope

01:17:14 --> 01:17:50

comes from and how the result would happen miracles from Allah subhanho wa Taala how Allah can change the law of physics in life. Also, the law of humanity can be changed in certain ways. So six people who would consider insignificant became the cause of change in the face of history afterwards, six people so that's the message for all of us today. If you always attach yourself to the result, you're going to get disappointed. At some point. What you need to do is just attach yours you're responsible to do your part and make the effort. Leave the results in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala you do the effort the best you can, and if it works in that your favorite

01:17:50 --> 01:18:26

hamdulillah If not, for hikma wisdom Allah knows kind of what Allah what's going to happen. You only do your part. Also the prophets Allah says in this story we learn it's not about the numbers. It's not about what you perceive to be the most powerful you know, way of doing things sometimes that insignificant number of insignificant people can make parlour can change the face of history. But we are responsible to do our part and Allah subhana wa Taala being the change in the light as a journalist, because among those who listen to the speech, and for the rest of the job will animate and have questions in mind before we take the common Charlotte alpha situation. Yes.

01:18:29 --> 01:18:30
