Episode Notes

This video is the beginning in the 3 part video relating to the miraculous journey undertaken by our beloved Prophet ﷺ. After the year of sorrow and the trial of Ta’if , when our Prophet ﷺ was at his lowest emotionally, it was only natural the Prophet ﷺ was gifted by a miracle from Allah and that is the incident of al-Isra wal-Mi’raj.

We are acquainted with the initial verses of Surah Isra and we come to realise that it speaks explicitly about the Isra. Why did Isra wal Miraj happen? Who was it for? When did it occur? Where did it happen from? Listen intently to get mesmerised with the answers provided by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi.

As for the Mi’raj in the Qur’an, Allah references it in Surah Najm. The reason for al Isra wal Mi’raj was for the Prophet ﷺ alone. It was a personal gift for him and him alone. We just hear about it as a blessing to the Prophet ﷺ. And the timing is perfect . How so? Find out in this episode of the Seerah. We also get clarifications on the difference between samaa’ and jannah. It is truly enlightening to listen to this as well.

We are next acquainted with the occupants of each layer of the physical heavens. What is the reason for this order of arrangement of the Prophets alayhisalaam? What is the symbolism and wisdom behind this?

The Baitul Ma’mur (the frequented house) is discussed about in this video and the only authentic hadith pertaining to this is shared and elaborated.

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah He was a woman who Allah.

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

Before we begin to the sisters want the lights on or off, how do you like it?

00:00:24--> 00:00:25

on or off?

00:00:27--> 00:00:30

off, okay, some people want it on

00:00:33--> 00:00:33

okay

00:00:38--> 00:01:25

and Sharla so last week we had discussed in a lot of detail the incident of thought if the incident of thought if we have mentioned many of the wisdoms, the blessings, the hidden wisdoms that Allah subhana wa tada conferred upon the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. And it is because of these incidents, the death of Khadija and the death of Abu Talib, and the incident of thought if that the entire year was called almond, or the year of sorrow. Now, as we have said many times before, and the hot weather gave a few weeks ago as well, a lot of analysts Allah has promised for us to run in America so useful. Allah hunter has promised that he's never going to test or try us, except that

00:01:25--> 00:02:08

there will always be ease along with and also after that trial. Right. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us that those who are patient will taste the fruits of their patience. And therefore after the lowest downs, if you like in the life of the process, and the most traumatic incidents in the life of the Prophet system. It was only natural that the Prophet system will then be gifted by one of the all time highs, and in some ways, and in some ways, this is the all time high in some ways, because of course, there are many multiple victories of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So after all of these personal losses and griefs and encounters, Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed him

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

with one of the greatest miracles. In fact, some scholars have said this is the greatest miracle that the Prophet system has been given personally not the miracle to his oma, his personal miracle, and that is the incident of Alice rock will allege the incident of an Islamic mirage. And this incident,

00:02:30--> 00:03:13

Allah subhana wa tada has referenced it twice in the Quran, once he has referenced the Islamic, and in another verse, he has referenced the Mirage right? So what is the Sauron what is the Mirage? The word is slow means to travel at night. This is the linguistic meaning the meaning of the word is slow to travel at night, and therefore, it's wrong means the travel that occurred at night, there's a specific travel that occurred at night. And of course, in Islamic terminology, or in sera terminology, and its route means the night journey that the profitsystem undertook from Makkah to Jerusalem, this is this wrong. And Mirage, Mirage actually means the,

00:03:14--> 00:04:07

if you like item or the mechanism of rising up, Hi, I'm Raj, I wasn't the Mr. Which is the Allah, for those who understand sort of El Mirage is the instrument that you use to rise up. Okay, there is a mechanism of rising up this mechanism, call it a lift, call it an elevator, right call it some type of spiritual creation of Allah, that causes a person to ascend up this apparatus is called El Mirage from Allah which means to rise up from algae which means to rise up. So El Mirage that which causes you to rise up. So Raj is the actual apparatus but we refer to it as the actual ascension, not the apparatus, but what the process of them did. And that is to rise up to the heavens, and so

00:04:07--> 00:04:57

on Islam from Mecca to Jerusalem, El Mirage from Jerusalem to the heavens. So when is saw is one journey that is on Earth. This is a journey that happened on this earth. And Mirage is a journey that has nothing to do with this world because it is an ascension, it is going up to the heavens. And this journey as we said is referenced both the Israel and the Mirage and two separate sutras reference them. As for the Islam, Allah subhanaw taala revealed an entire surah and the sutra is called certain Islam. So that is wrong. And the surah begins by the famous phrase, super Hannah, Lady us ra the IBD heal a limb mean Ms. judul harami either msgid in Arkansas, Ella de Baraka hola

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

who linaria humann Latina in the homeless.

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

ameerul bossy.

00:05:01--> 00:05:49

Allah is saying that he is worthy of being praised. Subhana Subhana means exalted. So panda means free of imperfection. So panda means he has no evil, no defect. This is what Savannah means. So we say Subhana Levy, all glory be to the one Why should glory be to Him? What is the reason why glory is to him? Because he blessed his servant with the miraculous journey. In other words, a lot is saying that he is worthy of being praised because of this journey. He is worthy of being venerated because of this journey. He is worthy of being the spea because of this journey, that's how important how miraculous how grand the journey is, that a lot is being praised because of it. So

00:05:49--> 00:06:36

Hanna Livia Swami Abdi Subhana, Allah is the one who took his servant and hear the word ABD is the highest praise that Allah has given to our Prophet salallahu it he was setting them because when Allah says in the Quran that I have created men and jinn for no other reason except to worship me or Buddha, right? This is why I have created managing. So when our offices have been called ABD, what I'm here means is the perfect worshipper from everybody, right? The perfect worshipper, so no one has perfected the worship of Allah or the purpose of creation, like our prophets are sort of and therefore is even taymiyah says that Allah azzawajal generally calls our Prophet system not by his

00:06:36--> 00:07:15

name, but by his title to show his honor and rank because when you call somebody by name, of course that's okay. But when you call somebody by title that is even more, that is even more honorable right to call somebody by title. That's why even in even in America, when we meet somebody, you know, Mr. President, or Mr. Senator, right, or we meet ambassador, Your Excellency, we don't mention names because there is a title that is given a much less than Arab and Muslim as Mashallah we have plenty of royalty there you know, had this one I had so we have plenty of highness seasoned princes and whatnot. So we refer to them and this is the culture of, of mankind. Allah subhana wa tada

00:07:15--> 00:08:03

refers to our Prophet system, sometimes by name, sometimes, rarely, right? Generally, in the name of the Shahada, Mohammed or Rasulullah. Right Muhammad Rasulullah. Twice Allah says this in the Quran, but more often than his name. Allah refers to him by his title, and that is happy to LA. It's not a name Abdullah is not a proper noun, it is an adjective. It's a description, that our Prophet system is the one who has perfected the worship of Allah. What a mahkamah Abdullah, meaning the Prophet says in the process of Subhana, Allah DSLR, the ibdp Alhamdulillah Allah IBT Hill kita Allah praises himself because he has done something for to the profitsystem Alhamdulillah Allah De Anza Allah

00:08:03--> 00:08:54

Allah says, so that we may show him of our wondrous miracles? In India, who singular the entire journey of Islam is meant for

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

00:08:57--> 00:09:23

The entire journey of Israel is meant for us who was so sudden, and that's why for us, we simply have to believe we didn't experience it. We don't. We haven't seen it happen, right? We simply have to believe that it happened. Who was it for? It was for Rasulullah sallallahu it was send them and in Surah so this is the Islam as for the Mirage, where does Allah reference the Mirage?

00:09:25--> 00:09:37

Surah najem not through the Mirage I was thinking somebody with a certain mirage. It's not referenced over there, sort of the nejm so that the najem Allah References The Mirage and Allah subhana wa tada says

00:09:40--> 00:09:48

that the the chest is not lying. The heart is not lying when it narrates what he saw. He's not saying telling you a lie Mecca would

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

have had to meluna Who am I or are you going to doubt what he saw? fit meluna who Allah May Allah wa who has gotten Ohara in the Sidra till moonta in the agenda tonight.

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

And indeed he saw him for a second time. We'll talk about this what is this reference? Here? He saw him at desidera till moonta what is the center of the motor how we'll get to that? It was just siddaramaiah Mazda boss oromocto. The eyes did not go beyond their mark. They didn't blink they didn't become scared, ie the process and engaged with bravery. The process of them took in all of these sites that he saw Mazda de la Sawa Moto, Nakamura mean to Robbie Hill Cobra, he saw of the miraculous signs of his Lord. Notice, look, I mean, II terribile. Cobra linaria humann iottie No. Cobra, you see the parallel, right in his serraj. And in najem, the exact same phrases are roughly

00:10:46--> 00:11:18

the same, right Lemuria hoomin 18 el Cobra so that we can show him of our magnificent signs. And in certain israa, Allah says, and indeed he saw of his Lord's magnificent signs bozzuto has mentioned Israel will merge with one reason, and that is to show our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the magnificent signs of a la gente de la Lu, and therefore the entire journey of Israel, what a mirage was a personal gift to rasulillah. So it's a personal gift. This is yours for you.

00:11:19--> 00:11:47

We just hear about it. We're not even, we're just we're not even witnesses. Right? We're just hearing about it as a blessing to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the timing here is perfect, because we already said Alan never tries a person and that person is patient, except that alone rewards him alone never tests the person and that person passes the test, except that he faces the fruits of that test immediately.

00:11:52--> 00:11:58

Now, the journey of astronomy is a little bit problematic from an academic perspective for many reasons.

00:12:00--> 00:12:28

Realize My dear brothers and sisters in Islam that the journey of Islam and millet Raj has been narrated by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in numerous Hadith It has been reported by over 20 Sahaba in Sahib, Bahati alone, there are six companions who narrated portions of it. And in fact Now listen to this is interesting factor. If you were to compile all of the ahaadeeth, about the makan era,

00:12:29--> 00:12:45

except for installing Mirage and put it in a volume, and you were to compile all of the Hadith about Israel with Mirage, you will find more a hadith about Israel Mirage, then you will find about the entire Mexican era minus astronomia Raj.

00:12:46--> 00:12:54

In other words, there's so many narrations now, we will say Alhamdulillah. Great. Well, this leads us to some issues. First and foremost.

00:12:55--> 00:13:41

This story has been taken up by storytellers, in the earliest of times, and storytellers were known to be exaggerated and fabricators or sauce, they were called an Arabic, they will just tell stories. And therefore this journey of a story Mirage actually has been narrated in many obscure books, not the authentic books with such vivid details and imagery. That actually is not even true. It's not even true. So that's one problem that we have, that the academic scholar has to sift through all of these things. Now, for those of you who are not aware, in early Islam, a phenomenon began before Islam, or before academic Islam flourished and became solidified. A phenomenon began of people

00:13:42--> 00:14:16

preaching to the masses based on ignorance, just they would go mosque to mosque. And you know, stories are always the most enlightening of things to hear. Everybody loves to hear stories. And so these people made a whole profession of telling stories. Some of these stories were stories they heard from friends and peers of the local times in places. Some of these stories were stories of the prophets of old complete fabrications. Some of these stories involve our process to them. These were unscrupulous people who just wanted to, and after they told the stories, people would give them money. You know, just like in our times as well, we have people they do things and then they just

00:14:16--> 00:14:52

given money, so they will give the money. So this storytelling became very popular, especially in the second and third generation of Islam. And then the scholars of Islam rose up and they preached against this and they said that these types of things need to be stopped. So the number of qualified banned the storytellers they, they said this is not allowed anymore in the message. But during this interim, certain stories became very popular. And they entered into this literature, and therefore the most popular story was the process of going up to Israel and all of these weird things happening that have no basis to them. So that's the first problem. The second problem, okay, even if we go

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

through and find out which is authentic, which is not an A hamdulillah many people have done this and I myself have spent a lot of time going over these rewire.

00:15:00--> 00:15:18

Once we even do that we have another problem which is even bigger. Because to sift through authentic and inauthentic This is a exact science. We know exactly. We go through the chains, we figure out authentic, inauthentic. Once we get all of the authentic, what's the problem, we have pieces of a large puzzle.

00:15:20--> 00:15:27

And there's nothing or very little to link these pieces together in a proper chronological order.

00:15:28--> 00:16:06

You guys see the point here, the processor might have said, I saw this, this happened. jubilees said this to me phrases, right? Imagine, for example, you attended a whole day conference, or you saw whatever football match whatever a soccer, match basketball, whatever, when you come back, you're going to be talking about that for the next few days, maybe, right? And you'll be giving snippets to various people. Right? The problem comes, how do you know, if you were to compile all of these snippets? How do you know the actual order of the original thing that you saw? It's very difficult. And therefore, in one sense, it is, in fact, really, to be honest, it is impossible to absolutely

00:16:06--> 00:16:20

verify the full chronological order of exactly what happened when. And in fact, and this is human nature, as the Sahaba reported. Again, let me give you an example that suppose one of you,

00:16:21--> 00:16:56

even this lecture that I'm giving now, even this lecture I'm giving Now, suppose one of you went back and tomorrow summarized it, for somebody who wasn't here, you would maybe mentioned 510 things, but you might not remember exactly which order I set it in, and you will narrow it with your own wording. So the same thing has happened with the journey of stolen marriage that all of these 20 Sahaba, who narrated it, all of these 20 Sahaba, even if they're authentic, the ones that are authentic, are 20, all of these 20. So have around 20 Sahaba, they're mentioning things, sometimes those things contradict one another. So have you said, for example, in order of detail, for example,

00:16:57--> 00:17:37

in one in one version gibreel comes to the process, and while he is in the messenger, the beta lock of this, and he hands him the two vessels of milk and have wine. And he chooses between the two, in another version gibreel hands him these two when he's taking them up to the heavens, and he's in the heavens. Right? What does one do here? Because they're both authentic, and obviously one of the narrator's kinda sorta mix things up with and how do we know, some scholars said it happened twice. Others said, Well, you know, we just have to figure out which one of the two is more authentic. So you see, this is another job that the scholars will always be engaged in. And therefore I have to

00:17:37--> 00:18:05

give this little bit of an introduction, before I jump in, to illustrate to you some of the problems that we face in talking about the CLR. And also to point out that even not just for this lesson that you're learning from me, but from any lesson, that sometimes what I say, might be a little bit different than what you'll find in some of the, you know, generic textbooks, right? Because there is there are some differences within the CLR, and some details and some invariants. So I want you to know this before we move on, in fact,

00:18:06--> 00:18:27

not to confuse you too much, because I try not to make the class to advanced academics. But you should be you should know that some scholars, because there's so many narrations of ISRO and Mirage in so many different details, some scholars very famous, including, for example, the no we felt felt this way that perhaps there were multiple Israel in marriage.

00:18:28--> 00:19:03

Perhaps it happened more than once. Why were they forced to say this, because they're getting reports that they cannot reconcile. So remember knowing, for example, in one fell swoop that he has, you know, perhaps the process and him, you know, had to sort of maybe, right now, you know, for some of you who've never heard this type of stuff before, but it actually was a very common opinion. Even if you jumped on many famous scholars of the past, they actually felt there's multiple stolen marriages, because why? Because there's so many narrations, and they cannot reconcile them. However, in my humble opinion, and this is the majority opinion, his opinion, although you're aware of, it's

00:19:03--> 00:19:39

only one install in marriage because Allah clearly says to have handled at the lobby, he was the next word Laden. It happened at one night, right? It happened at one night. Therefore, it's pretty clear that there's one Israel Mirage, and if there are any discrepancies, we try to reconcile them and that's what we have in shallow tada done, because Israeli Mirage is so long, we're not going to finish today, we're going to take at least two if not three, just to go over all of the israa when we are Raj weeks, so let us inshallah who to either begin first question. When did it occur? When did this roll Mirage occur?

00:19:41--> 00:19:58

We find in early in early literature from the tab your own type of tab your own, that they're trying to put some dates on the Islam, but we don't have any narration from Sahabi any companion. So some of the early tab your own set is that I happened one year before the digital

00:20:00--> 00:20:33

This is the opinion of pretty much most of the early commentators and the early writers of this era, including in his house, and in his house, as we know is the number one authority. Other scholars that had happened a year and a half others said to others even said five years before they hit Europe, however, there's one very important clue that we can at least eliminate some of the more extreme opinions and that clue is telling us something about Khadija Isha said about Khadija about the love of Allah and her that her deja died before the Sunnah became fuddled.

00:20:34--> 00:20:36

What does that got to do with anything?

00:20:37--> 00:20:39

So what if she died before so I became followed?

00:20:40--> 00:21:25

Because Salah became followed at Israel with marriage. Okay, so the fact that Khadija died before Sadat became followed, clearly shows that Israel marriage happened basically in the last year and a half of mcca. Right? So we can eliminate all the other opinions they say two years, five years, seven years, clearly an incorrect because we have clearly Ayesha authentically saying Khadija died before Salah became four. Therefore, the incident occurred after her death and obviously hideous death. And I thought it was death and thought if we're literally one after the other. So it makes complete sense, therefore, and this is the majority opinion that is sort of occurred after these

00:21:25--> 00:21:30

three incidents and before the hijra. And that's basically our timing. When we're doing the theater class, I finished

00:21:32--> 00:22:10

the year of sorrow. And now we move on to the incident of Islamic marriage. As for the month that Israel took place in, there are no opinions narrated from the early scholars of Islam. All the opinions began after the first 200 years. And this clearly shows therefore, that we don't know which month it happened in, you know, some some of these earliest callers that revealed Oh, what some sort of a beer 30 Some said, Roger, as you all know, the famous month in Muslim culture and law is Roger, some said, Ramadan, some said, Sure. Well, these are the five big opinions I found, I found five opinions about various early scholars, none of them have any authentic basis from the habitat

00:22:10--> 00:22:47

Bureau. And therefore the fact of the matter, we don't know which month it occurred, and we don't know which month it occurred in. So automatically, anybody who celebrates a day and says, This is the day of installing Mirage, when we don't even know the month, forget the actual day it occurred. This is simply an unknown time when that occurred. And and you know what, the fact of the matter is, the fact that the Sahaba didn't preserve the date shows that they didn't care what day it occurred. What's important is the incident. So the Muslims don't commemorate specific days of the year, when something happens on it. This is not our culture. Allah gave us these two days of read. Remember

00:22:47--> 00:23:15

those two days, the rest of this, the Sahaba did not record what exact date it happened on, because they realize it's not important. What's important are the details of the story. So the first question, When did it happen? probably the strongest position around the year before the hedgerow. That's all we know, around the year before. The second question, Where did it happen from? And here is where we get the first difference of opinion, because we have a number of different reports. All of them authentic, two of them are in Bahati itself.

00:23:18--> 00:23:27

The first report says that the Profit System says that while I was sleeping in a healthy team, what is a healthy team?

00:23:30--> 00:24:11

It is the semicircular region that is outside of the cab. Right. This is the health team. The team used to be a part of the cab in the time of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and then the Quraysh when they rebuilt the cab I explained when I showed you that chart, many months ago, they didn't have funds to build the full cab. So they said let's build a half cab when we get money, we'll build the full cab, right? So they built a square kabah rather than a rectangular as the original guy was rectangular. And ever since then, basically, the the cabinet has remained the square. And it was the wisdom of a lot that the health team remain open for everybody. Because praying in the health team is basically

00:24:11--> 00:24:29

praying inside the Kaaba, right. praying in the health team is praying inside the cab, and this is the wisdom of Allah, that he led the health team open. So in this version, and this is the most authentic version, the Prophet says. And I've said that when I was in the health team lying down Djibouti and came to me.

00:24:30--> 00:24:59

So this is the most authentic version. There is another version that says that the processor says that when I was in my house, I saw the roof open up and God will come to me. And then there are other versions that are not as authentic. Even hedger says, this shows that he was in his house and gibreel first took him to the Hilton. And this makes sense because why would he be sleeping in the open in the health team when he has a house in Mecca, right. So we see that not every contradiction is at face value of full color.

00:25:00--> 00:25:38

prediction. In fact, even hedgehog makes a good point. That is he was sleeping in his house, and jabril came to him. And the first thing that he took him to was the Gabba to pray to the guard over there. And then from there gibreel then took him somewhere else. Okay. So this is how you reconcile sometimes to take both of them at face value, the process of in one story, he begins from the health team, and the other one, he begins from his house. And there's no contradiction, because from his house, he was taken to the health team. And he says that, in the carrabba, or in the health team, Judy opened up my chest, and he brought a

00:25:39--> 00:26:17

bowl made out of gold that was full of in one version, it says Zamzam in another version, it says full of he man. And again, there is no contradiction, because whatever is in that it is going to give him a man. And it was also a thumbs up. And so again, there is no contradiction here full of a man or full of Zamzam. And he took out my heart and washed it and put it back. And this was the second time as we all know that this happened. So the Prophet says that his heart was taken out twice, once when he was four or five years old. But that time there was a detail that is not mentioned here. What is that detail? Who remembers?

00:26:18--> 00:26:43

Very good, a black spot was taken out. Right? Now when this is happening, there is no black spot to take out, obviously, because it's already been taken out. Right? So there is no black spot. So then what is the purpose of washing the heart when it's already been washed, and it's already the black spot has been taken out? The purpose is to strengthen the Profit System for what he's about to see. Because he's about to see

00:26:44--> 00:26:48

romans eight or bill Cobra, he's about to see things as

00:26:50--> 00:26:57

even hasm says, that if another man were to have seen even a fraction of what the process enema saw, he would have gone mad.

00:26:58--> 00:27:43

We just saw a fraction of all of these wondrous amazing things. He's entering a different world, he's entering them alive. He's entering another dimension if you like, if another man were to have done this, you would have gone crazy our profit system. Allah says masakan bustle Roma Taha, the eyes took everything in firmly. And so to fortify him to strengthen his Eman, the Profit System, his heart was washed, and that's why in one version, he says the bowl was filled with a man. And another version he says it was it was filled with Zamzam. Then he says, then gibreel brought me a da ba, da ba is a beast. It's an animal, Dune, lw afocal hammar. It is smaller than a mule and larger than a

00:27:43--> 00:28:00

donkey. So he's describing it with precision, so it's not as big as a horse, a horse is much bigger, right? It's smaller than a mule bigger than a donkey. doodlebug do another bakery will fulfill him out, I'll be up pure white. And it was called albuterol

00:28:01--> 00:28:51

al buraq. And I buraq, of course comes from the root of lightning. Right? So it's lightning speed, lightning speed, right is the root of lightning. And the processor explained that it puts its head off where the eye can see every hope of this block. It puts it as far as the eye can see. Now, here's where some legends began the vision the image of buraq with wings is not been narrated, right? He this hadith clearly says that buraq is a physical creature. It's not mythical, it's not a spirit. It is adapa flesh and blood. Right? It's something that Allah created that is a creature. And this creature, it can run much faster than a normal horse so fast. It jumps as far as the eye

00:28:51--> 00:29:34

can see that Can you imagine? We see, you know, sometimes eight 910 miles and the distance, every foot is like 10 miles, let's say the other foot is another 10. So within a millisecond 20 miles, right? within a minute, how much are you doing? So if every second you're going like 2030 miles a second, imagine this is something way faster than anything that we know. But this is a physical creature. According to another report in Timothy, the prophet system said it had a muzzle on it, you know what you put on the harness? It had a harness on it, and it had a saddle. So this is a physical creature. And so the Prophet system jublia was holding on to the harness and the Profit System

00:29:34--> 00:29:42

stepped on to Al baraki basically mounted albayrak What does an animal do that is mounted by a strange person

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

jumps up it needs right. So Brock tried to do that. And jabril basically smacked him Jubilee yanked the harness. And he said, Woe to you attempt to stay or you're not ashamed. me How dare you do this?

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

Right. So God is rebuking Brock. How dare you do this? For for one law he, no one has written you more blessings in the eyes of Allah than your current writer.

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

No one has written you

00:30:16--> 00:30:20

that is more blessed in the eyes of Allah, then your current writer, what is that show, by the way?

00:30:22--> 00:30:25

that buraq has been written by other,

00:30:26--> 00:30:58

whoever, whatever we don't know, right? But buraq has been written by other creations. Other Allah knows what they are, maybe they were not even humans, Allah knows, right? But this shows By the way, this clearly shows that buraq is a physical creature, right? Because it's acting like creatures act, it's acting like animals act. And when when it became agitated, jubin is rebuking so Barack understands Barack knows what's going on, but it's still an animal. So Juanita is rebuking him, how dare you do this? You know, you're This is the most noble writer that you have ever had.

00:30:59--> 00:31:38

And this also shows it's just a glimpse that Allah has created things beyond our knowledge, right? You know, Allah says in the Quran, via Hulu, mother, the moon, that Allah has created that which you have no knowledge of, last week we talked about, even the jinn have beasts and creatures, remember, we talked about this already? Right? Even the jinn have jinn animals, right? This is of the creation that is amongst us, we have no knowledge of them. So how about the other world? Or how about even like a buraq, which is a physical creature that lives in the other world, and it's only brought down for these types of times and occasions, or maybe this was the only time it was brought in this world

00:31:38--> 00:32:28

we'll never know this is a in my life. So buraq comes and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mountain, and the Prophet says, Adam said that I wrote him. And he took me until we came to baytril mock this until we came to buy to mock this. Now, here, we have to pause you it's very interesting to note that at this time, there is no sanctuary at bay to mock this. There is no structure at bay to mock this, there is no mosque, temple or synagogue. Do you know why? Because the Christians wanted to make a point to the Jews, that they have no respect for their shot and for their heritage. Remember, Roman Rome is a Christian country Empire now, right, and they control Jerusalem. But the

00:32:28--> 00:32:49

Christians historically were usually very anti semitic, they were always there was this thing that they had, and this is historically well known that they've always had this type of thing. And so the Roman Emperor had basically decreed that this holy site of the holy temple should be converted into our Villa a

00:32:50--> 00:33:29

trash and you know, gutter like the sewer, basically, it was a filthy area, okay. What this shows is that when the process of them came here, he is seeing the beta mock this as it was, right so Allah azza wa jal basically brought about the probably the original of Sunni mode or something, the whatever it was that he is praying there, because as it is, it is a trash dump. This is not the the beta mock this that we can don't think of the Dome of the Rock that obviously what the process of them is coming there, there is no Dome of the Rock right there is no mustard, Khalid all of this is of course, later on. So the Prophet system said I came to beta democritus. And what clearly proves

00:33:29--> 00:33:57

that there is a structure here that mankind cannot see is that he says, and I tied al buraq to the animal poster that is used by the prophets Subhan Allah, Brock has to be tied up. Because if you don't tie him up, he's gonna run away. Okay, so buraq has to be tied up. Not only that, but he ties a block to the post that is used by the other prophets, which means what

00:33:59--> 00:34:36

the other prophets that used to pray there, right, they had a post that they would use to tie their animals to from this I joke, having an Imam parking is not anything that's wrong. That is permissible to have a man parking outside of the masjid. Because here we have the profits coming to a special place right outside the message. Of course, that's a joke. Don't take it, too. That's for horses. So we met pay us for our times two cars. Okay, we'll make playoffs for our time, as is, of course a joke. But the point is interesting that the prophets had a special place to park their animals that they would put their animals because that's what the process of said. So I tied it to

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

the post that was used by the previous prophets. And this, by the way, again, clearly shows that he is seeing a structure that is not seen by men at this time, because obviously, the post that prophets of a man who is not going to be president, you know, for 3000 years later, obviously right? So a lot of his origin is basically showing him the original beta Marxist and he is physically there. And this is Allah

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

capability and it is beyond our understanding. And then he says

00:35:05--> 00:35:43

somewhere the How to fillet to figure a catch chain, I went inside and I prayed to look at I pray to the gods and of course this is before to hear it and mustard was legislated. So this shows us that the concept of the eight msgid of when you enter the masjid, you should pray to the God. This is even before the process of legislated in Medina because that's when he legislated it, but he himself was practicing things in Mecca. This is before Salah is followed, right? But he's still praying, and he's praying when he enters the masjid. Now, here's where we get another minor narration difference. According to one narration, the prophets of Allah seldom pray to the gods. And when he turned

00:35:43--> 00:36:27

around, felt afraid to throw at Jimmy ambia. He saw all of the prophets lined behind him. So the impression we get from this narration, he didn't know that there were prophets behind him. Okay, from the other narration that we have. The Prophet system actually says that I saw myself with the other prophets. And there was Moosa preying on him when you suddenly and he was a strong and tall and strong and muscular man of a brownish color, as if he is a man from the tribe of shenouda. We don't know what the people of the tribe of Shinto look like in our times, but for the people who in the process of speaking, he is saying Moosa is like the people from the tribe of Shenandoah, and

00:36:27--> 00:37:03

they saw a ceremony and he said, I'm standing and praying. So there's one place Moosa standing another place, he set his standing, and the one who looks most like him is what drew the coffee. Once again, we don't know what that looks like. But for the Sahaba. There's a resemblance going on. He's trying to show them that this is what he looks like. In another version of the process that he said he was whitish in color. Of course, the Arabic is red, the as I said before, the Arabs called White people read, just like the American Indians called White people pale face, right? So the arrows would call red or yellow.

00:37:04--> 00:37:45

Or they would call the white people either red or yellow, because that's how they perceived that type of whiteness as being reddish or yellow. So he said he was a basically a Caucasian looking or whitish looking, and his hair glistened with water, as if he had come out of a steam bath. So his complexion is it's basically you can imagine this, I don't know how to describe it, but the hair is coming is glistening, and he is a rather short man compared to Musa so Risa is not as tall as Musa. And then he said, and I saw Ibrahim alayhis salam. And when you suddenly notice, he says, standing and praying Moosa standing and praying, Ibrahim is standing and praying right as he enters the

00:37:45--> 00:37:55

masjid, all of them are standing and praying, and the one who resembles him the most is your own companion, meaning himself. Right? In another Hadith, he said,

00:37:56--> 00:38:37

that I could not see anybody more closely resembling to Abraham then myself, and I could not see anybody more closely resembling myself to Abraham. In other words, Abraham and our Prophet system were almost mirror images of each other in their physical appearance. And then it came the time to sign up for Hannity's Salah for a month to him. So I was put the amount of them so this version has it that he knew exactly what's going on. And this is again, one of those things that was difficult. I mean, how do you reconcile this Allah knows best did he know did he not know there's two versions. But the the main point is, he is leading the the ambia and the mursaleen behind him. And what is

00:38:37--> 00:39:18

interesting, what is interesting is that all of the profits he's seen already standing and praying for him when you suddenly and this shows us the importance of sight out that even after death, at least for Ibrahim and Moosa as we're Isa he's still alive, right? But even after death, the prophets are praying. And in fact, our Profit System said that when I was going to destroy our marriage I passed by the grave of Moosa. So this means he passed by his grave, and then Allah took him to Masjid to measure the oxygen, right? And then Allah took him to the sixth heaven. So he met Musa three times. So he said, I passed by Moosa in his grave, what was he doing? And when you suddenly

00:39:19--> 00:40:00

then he gets debated maka this, now Moosa doesn't need Baraka Musa is already in the spirit form. Musa does not need Baraka tbaytel noctus. So, Musa was there what's he doing standing and praying? Isa, he only saw him there for the first time. What's he doing standing and praying Ibrahim was he doing standing in pray. This is enough of an indication of the blessings of sada that the Prophet system is seeing all of these ambia and more studying even after death. They are standing and praying. It also shows and of course, this is clearly understood. The fact that the profit system becomes the Imam of all of the profits behind him. Of all

00:40:00--> 00:40:49

of the MBR and mousseline clearly shows that he is being given an honor that is unparalleled and unequaled that not only is he Cejudo, MBR and emammal marcellin, right, he is the Imam of all of the profits. Not only this, but by extension, since every prophet is the leader of his oma, and the Prophet system is leading the prophets who leave all the individual owners. Our Prophet, Mohammed sysm is the leader of every single oma, ie, as he himself said, and say you do one or the other, my Yeoman pm at waterfall. He is the Savior, the Savior means the leader, the master, He is the Savior of all of the children of Adam on the Day of Judgment. And then he said, I'm not saying this stuff

00:40:49--> 00:41:32

for a lot to boast or be arrogant. This is just a fact. And this incident clearly proves this, that by leading the prophets in Sudan, every prophet is the leader of his oma. So the leader of all of the omens therefore, is our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Another point here that the scholars have commented on, is that because these prophets are obviously in a different, like they're in their spiritual form or what not. So there's no space barrier as it is anyway, they're actually all standing in one soft, soft, open, right? So there is no soft behind him. There's one long row that we can basically extrapolate is 120,317 or something people long, because we know

00:41:32--> 00:42:13

there's 120,000 profits. Remember lecture long back we spent a whole hour talking about prophets and messengers, remember that one long time ago, and then we just have said that there's 120,000 prophets and 350 or so messengers. So in this hadith we learn Jamia, or sitting or standing behind him, this means there's a soft that is 120,000. And something people long, and they're all in the same stuff. And this proves another point and that is in one version in one eye. Excuse me. Lando for Cobain hadn't been home for all the profits are the same, in one sense. And then in another sense, ticker guru Fabiana Baba Humala about right, some profits we have preferred over others. So

00:42:13--> 00:42:52

the Quran says no difference. And then the Quran says, Yes, we have preferred some over others. How do we reconcile, we they are all the same. They're praying the same prayer. They're praying to the same Lord during the same recordings to do their messages the same, but amongst themselves, some are better than others, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the best of all of them. Then he says that after he finished fauja and edubirdie, as I said, this is one of those differences in this version jabril comes to him right now, and presents to two utensils. And another version jabril does this one they ascend up to the heavens minor difference, it doesn't really matter that much. So what

00:42:52--> 00:43:07

are these two utensils? What are they what is inside of them, one of them has hammer, and the other one has lemon, right? So there's wine and there is milk. Now remember, up until this time, wine has not been made out on.

00:43:08--> 00:43:51

Wine is still held out. The Muslims of MK are drinking wine, wine has been made. At this point, there is no trading. So jabril hands him these two. And God says choose and choose for your oma. In other words, this choice will affect will affect not just you it will affect your own soul. So the Prophet system chose the milk. And gibreel says, you have chosen the fifth or a sub that you have chosen the right one, and that is the fitara. And this is a huge symbolism here that I can have to summarize, but I've spoken about this in my theological lectures in more detail. The difference between wine and milk is very profound and it's very symbolic.

00:43:53--> 00:44:39

milk comes pure from the animal. As Allah says Yahoo in Lebanon hardest song from between the filth and the blood. Allah says we bring forth Lebanon hardly Sansa Iran, the shadie been pure, wholesome milk for those who drink it. And in the Hadith, it says that not nothing substitutes for both food and drink other than milk. Nothing substitutes for both food and drink other than milk. So milk is a blessing. A delicacy that Allah mentions in the Quran, that the Prophet has been praised that he is reported to have drunk many times he used to drink milk used to love camel's milk and sheep's milk. Milk is pure and it comes straight from the animal and it is wholesome and healthy. And it is

00:44:39--> 00:45:00

nourishing and nutritious. As you all know, we're instructed to drink you know, at least a glass or two everyday kids even more than this, right? What is wine? Wine is corrupted, fermented filthy. Wine is something that was pure, and then bacteria literally bacteria have infested it right and correct.

00:45:00--> 00:45:38

It wine stinks. Literally It stinks. Right? You smell it and you feel disgusted. What is this? How can you, you know, the lemon is not appraiser. I've never drank wine. I've never tasted alcohol. But I remember clearly the first time when I was a teenager, I passed by a group of, you know, young people partying with wine and whatnot. And I had first time I smelled it, and will lie. I thought that somebody had urinated on the street. Well, I thought somebody had urinated on the street. What is what is this? My friend said, Don't you know this smell? So what is this? So this is this is beer. This would wine smells like alcohol smells like it's disgusting. Just to smell it. It's

00:45:38--> 00:46:21

disgusting. Right? And then what does it do when you drink it? Is it wholesome? Is it pure like milk? Is it nourishing? No, it makes you lose your mind. It corrupts you. It makes you think strange and act strange and act foolish. And one of the Sahaba said, that will lie even if wine had not been prohibited, any intelligent man would have avoided it. One of the Sahaba said that even if wine had not been prohibited, any man who actually sent him a proper intelligence will understand how foolish it is when you drink wine, you act like this, right? So compare and contrast what is milk what is wine, the processor chose that which is pure comes from the pure and nuts sustains you purely,

00:46:22--> 00:47:05

versus the wine that is corrupt, that is corrupted, and that corrupts the body. Right. So the processor automatically chose the pure and gibreel said, this is for your oma IE your oma will also be pure, and your mo will be upon the fifth floor, and our profits are seldom said look jubu called milk, the fifth floor. And our process that I've said every child is born upon the fifth. It's pure, it's wholesome. And it is a good child. It's a child that is good in it. The base instinct of man is good and not evil. So the process of him chose the milk. And that is when the the Jubilee came to him. And the Prophet says, Adam says this do the doors of the summer opened up for me. This is the

00:47:05--> 00:47:37

Mirage, no. Okay, so from Jerusalem, this is the Mirage from baytril mock this, the doors opened up for me. So notice the daba or Baraka is still tied at the post. Okay, so the journey is very simple. From Masjid al haram dimensional archosaur, from us to the officer up to the heavens, then he's going to come back down, and then use buraq to get back to Mecca. Okay, so this is the journey of this raw world mirage. So he says, God asked permission for the doors of the heavens to open.

00:47:38--> 00:48:26

And the gate keeper behind the door asked Who is it? So gibreel says it is jabril. And the gatekeeper said, Do you have anybody? And jabril said, Yes, I have with me, Mohammed. So send them the gatekeeper says has he been sent for? Does he have permission to pass? gibreel says yes. So then the doors open up. So this shows that there are doors that are locked, because you really cannot go through. There are doors that are locked, there's a special type of lock. It shows that every door has a door keeper, a gatekeeper. And it shows that the gatekeeper is not allowed to let anybody pass unless they have permission. And because these are angels and angels cannot lie, what is the

00:48:26--> 00:49:05

permission? You don't need a paper you don't need a visa, you don't need a stamp. The angel simply says, Allah has told me to do this. They don't lie. Right? So the angel has to verify who is there who is with you? Does he have permission? That's all and if the person says yes to the Jubilee, it says Yes, hello, us permission is given. So for every single one of the seven heavens, the same story happens. They get to the second heaven, and it's closed Djibouti and asked permission the gatekeeper says who is their job? He says jabril he says that anybody with you the same conversation? Every single one of the seven heavens Okay, now let's pause here. We need to explain

00:49:05--> 00:49:08

what are the seven heavens serve as Mr. watts.

00:49:10--> 00:49:17

This is one of the biggest confusions that people have that they confuse Jannat with somehow what

00:49:18--> 00:49:32

they confuse Jenna with summer, and these are two separate words and two separate concepts. Allah subhana wa tada says that he is done Hanukkah Sabbath as summer, Walton Li Bao

00:49:34--> 00:49:59

Sabha, Sam Walton, Reba. Allah has created seven summer watts, one on top of the other three balconies and layers to back means in layers Baba Khan and Babak right this is layer upon layer. So Allah says what are the Holocaust survivors Emma Watson woman and audibly mithila hoon. And Allah has created a similar number of routes. That's a separate topic. We don't go into that tangent right now.

00:50:00--> 00:50:19

Now, it's confusing enough as it is set by somewhat. So there are seven Semih watts. Okay. So somehow What are physical heavens above us? And in my humble opinion, I think I've said this before. In this class and my humble opinion,

00:50:21--> 00:50:55

everything that we see around us, the furthest star, hundreds of billions of light years away, all of the millions and billions of galaxies that we know everything is the lowest Heaven, ie heaven number one, free at the bar, you can say the semi adonia is how the Koran refers to it the lowest of the seven beyond this, there is a sixth beyond that there is a five beyond that there is a fourth and why do I say this? Because Allah subhana wa tada says, what happened is a Yunus sama dunia

00:50:57--> 00:50:57

b masabi.

00:50:59--> 00:51:48

We have beautified the summer adonia. And we know that summer dunya is the first because even in this report, it says from paddock ob gibreel had a summer dounia for stuff that even in this report and Bahati the process and says jabril took me until we finish to the summer adonia and then he asked permission for the door to open. So sama dunia What is it? Allah says in the Quran, while apodization sama dunya be masabi ha we have beautified the summer adonia with its lamps and its lights, meaning Meaning what? The stars. So all the stars that we see. And if you study even the most basic astronomy, your mind begins to just lose track of how big the spaces right, she said even

00:51:48--> 00:52:27

the most basic links and distances and light years and the furthest galaxy is literally billions of light years away, which means that it doesn't even exist anymore. What we're seeing was what it was, you know, billions of years ago, the mind just boggles every telescope mankind keeps on inventing, it keeps on looking further into the universe, we still have not discovered just what the physical eyes with the telescopes can see. You guys understand is that this is unbelievable. How large will let your mind cannot comprehend how large this created universe is. We have no idea. We have no clue because everything we keep on creating when the we did the Hubble the Hubble telescope is still

00:52:27--> 00:52:38

sending us information we cannot digest. And every time we'll create a bigger one, I am sure that that bigger one will not be able to see, you know, except to a distance. Right? And all of this dunya

00:52:39--> 00:53:19

Samardzija just the lowest Evan, what is beyond that animal type? We'll we'll never really going to find out in this world and then the next life who wouldn't care about it anyway. Okay, so that's of the creation of Allah subhana wa Tada. So, what are the somewhat physical places, one of which is our universe, our everything that we know our cosmos. Beyond this, there are second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh. Now, what are the jinn not? the jinn not are the heavens that are promised as the reward for the believers? sama is different than gender.

00:53:20--> 00:53:21

Where are the gender that

00:53:23--> 00:53:41

it appears? There's two interpretations here. One of them says that the Jannat are in the seventh semar all of them. So the Jannat are hundreds and 1000s of layers as well. Right? And where do they occupy their place is the seventh heaven.

00:53:42--> 00:54:18

Right? So the seventh summer is where all the jetnet are. This is one interpretation. Another interpretation, which is very similar is that the Jannat began in the sixth, but then they work their way to the seventh. And there is evidence for both and you know, to be honest, this is in melee, we're just trying to try to find bits and pieces here and there. But the bottom line is the gymnasts are at the top of the semi what right, the janitor at the top of the semi water this is what we get from the ahaadeeth. Now, what happens,

00:54:19--> 00:54:52

the profit system goes to the first door the first door opens. And there is a man standing to process him described as being tall, huge. And gibreel says this is your father Adam, so say Salaam to him. So the Prophet says Adam said Sam, and Adam responded and said, Mark have been believing Assad when to be your solid welcome or noble son, and oh, noble Prophet, welcome, righteous son and a righteous prophet.

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

Then we went to the second heaven and then the same conversation. This is a very long edited, isn't it and this is the

00:55:00--> 00:55:44

This Hadith only describes who's at each heaven and what happens at each heaven. So this paragraph of Julian's conversation with the gatekeeper, multiply that by seven, does you understand what's happening here in the second heaven? There is, yeah, here an ISA Ibn Al Hol. ie there are two mothers were sisters, right? So Maria and her sister, their two children are yahaya and resour, Risa and yahaya. And the profitsystem was told this is yahia and Isa say Salaam to them. And so I said Salaam to them. And they said, welcome, oh noble brother, and a noble Prophet, Adam said, our noble son, and a noble prophet. They're saying, our noble brother, and oh, noble Prophet, then the third

00:55:44--> 00:56:26

heaven. And then the third heaven was used to follow his setup. And the same thing, welcome our noble brother and our noble prophet. And here is where the process of said the famous phrase, I saw use of, and lo and behold, it was as if he had been given half of all duty shorter All right, so this is where that famous phrase comes from, that in fact, this is the only time he saw use and he goes, I saw you so it was as if he had been given half of all beauty. Then I went up to the fourth habit, and the fourth was add Sally seller. And Idris also says, Welcome or noble, or noble brother and honorable Prophet, then I go up to the fifth heaven and there is how rune and the same welcome

00:56:26--> 00:57:12

or noble brother, noble Prophet, a gold to the sixth heaven, and there is Moosa and he described Moosa as well as being stout, tall, muscular and brownish color. And he goes again, wondering why it says, as if he's from the tribe of Shinola, and if anybody knows what somebody from the tribe of funeral looks like, I would like to know I don't know, is there something still known or is it now gone from our times? Then I went up, Mossad began to cry. This has a story that the others don't have. Moosa began to cry. So he was asked, Why are you crying? So Moosa says I am crying because this young man who was sent after me, shall have a larger following that will enter Jenna than my

00:57:12--> 00:57:12

own.

00:57:14--> 00:57:24

I am basically jealous that this man who is a young man Moosa, called the process and mo lamb. Now, the process of is hold now.

00:57:26--> 00:57:31

5251 52 right, Moses, calling him a lamb.

00:57:33--> 00:57:34

Some of you should be happy shall.

00:57:36--> 00:57:38

Why is he being called by Moosa?

00:57:40--> 00:57:43

Because Moosa died when he was 130 or something years old.

00:57:44--> 00:58:25

Okay, so compared to Moosa, this is a man half my age, right? And so Moses says, Yeah, this is a hold on, right? It's a young boy basically, right? So Moosa is allowed to describe the process of in this manner, because his own age is more than double that of the Prophet system when he passed away. Okay, so he cries, and he says, that he's basically jealous in an Islamic manner, as we'll talk about, because this is a positive thing that you're jealous for more has not he's not jealous against the profitsystem. But it's good to be jealous for more rewards, right? You should be jealous for the quality of the Quran, the half of the Quran, the acronym, the generous, you know, rich man,

00:58:25--> 00:58:56

you know, the Hadeeth, right? This is a positive jealousy. So this is what Moosa is that this is the positive jealousy, I wish I was like this, right? It's not a negative that why did he get it? It's the positive that we're all supposed to have. And then the Prophet system said, after the seventh heaven, notice, by the way, each one of these welcoming committees welcoming parties is after he enters the heaven. Right? So he enters the first Heaven, there is Adam waiting for him. Then he enters the second heaven. And then there is

00:58:57--> 00:59:09

there is Yeah, and ASAP. Right. And then the third is use of so I really should memorize this. By the way. This is a quiz question should memorize the order from now on. So let's start again. The first is the second

00:59:10--> 00:59:35

set. And yeah, the third use of the fourth, Idris, the fifth, how on the sixth, most excellent. And then the seventh, we all know. And then he said that I went up to the seventh heaven, the same question back and forth with God. And then I saw Ibrahim alayhis salam, and he was sitting with his back leaning on the Albay tool maamoul.

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

We're getting there. He was sitting on his back leaning on eBay tomorrow morning. And gibreel said to me, this is your father, Ibrahim buka. Ibrahim, say Sam to him. And so the Prophet says Adam said Salaam to him, and Ibrahim responded the exact same way that Adam had responded. Notice the beginning and the end the same response right?

01:00:00--> 01:00:43

Haven't believe in a solid, when maybe you're solid, the only two who said this right? Or Adam and Ibrahim because everybody else they said Allison, right? But Adam and Abraham were the only two said welcome, or noble son, they're proud of their sons panelo. Right. This is a natural, they're proud of their son, and welcome or noble son, and an honorable Prophet now. So inshallah today what we'll do is we'll finish up with the wisdom of these ordering, and then we'll have to stop shallow data, because there is appears to be some wisdom in this ordering. Why these prophets in this order, realize that this order common to popular misconception, this order has nothing to do with blessings

01:00:44--> 01:00:52

of the prophets. No, this is not the case. Some people say the suffering that Adam was the lowest and then No, that's not the case. That's not does not seem to be the case.

01:00:54--> 01:01:28

And what appears to be is that these are basically as I already referenced, some scholars have said, these are basically welcoming committees welcoming parties that allow us to partner with the either sent some of the nobelist profits and some of the most famous profits to simply greet the process of them as he comes in. As apparently this is a custom that we still have. You know, when a noble person comes when the President or dignitary comes, the president comes out to meet him or the dignitary comes out to meet him. This is the son of Allah, even in the creation. And so when our Prophet system is coming up, he is basically being given the Royal carpet welcome, that every single

01:01:29--> 01:02:11

heaven every single summer, there is going to be a welcoming party or welcoming prophet to greet him, and to then help him to move on to the next stage. And in each of these seven choices, there seems to be some, some wisdom and some hidden reference. And each one of them we can derive that, for example, Adam alayhis salam, it is befitting that he is the first to greet him because he is the father not just of all the prophets, but the father of all of mankind. And by seeing Adam what you remember is that he was a man whom Allah subhana wa tada chose with Jenna, but he had to leave Jenna, but eventually he shall be returning to Gen. And there is a symbolism of leaving your

01:02:11--> 01:02:49

security and comfort and leaving if he left the holiest place in the next life. The Prophet says a man has to leave the holiest place in this world, and that is Mecca. But eventually he will return to that holiest place, just like our father, Adam will eventually return to his holiest place. If, if a larger region will that Adam had to leave the holiest in the in that world, our profit system, just the next year is going to have to leave the holiest of this world. And that is Mecca, because we know Morocco is the holiest city so he will have to be expelled from Mecca. Like his father Adam was expelled from from gender and the people who did it shout out in shaytaan did it there and the

01:02:49--> 01:02:58

evil people are doing it now Abu lahab and these others are doing it now. Okay, so there is that symbolism? They're seeing? Isa and yeah, here.

01:02:59--> 01:03:35

He said, yeah, here are the perfect second candidates second gender. Why? Because they are chronologically the closest to the profit center in time. In time, no profits came after he said, Yeah, hey, until the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So they are the closest contemporary. They're the peers in terms of chronological order. And there's also a symbolism here that they are who their own people try to kill the both of them. And they succeeded in killing Yeah, you know, john the baptist, they actually cut his head off, can you believe their own profit? This is not i'm not saying this. This isn't the New Testament. I'm not the one saying this isn't their

01:03:35--> 01:04:10

own books, right? That they killed him in beta democracy I need. What can I say this is that's how Allah describes them. So they kill them and beta mock this. Okay. And this is john the baptist. Yeah, they tried to kill Jesus. We all know the story. Right? They even tried to kill a seven Imodium? There's a clear symbolism here, yada sutala You're not the only one who has been opposed. You're not the only one who has people have rejected you. Right. And if that doesn't bring the point home, let's move on to the third heaven, use of Allah, his Sam, who tried to harm him his own blood brothers, his own blood brothers tried to harm him. But what happens and here's the symbolism, his

01:04:10--> 01:04:49

own blood brothers reaccept him back, and they accept his faith, and they repent and they are guided. And therefore there is a symbolism that your own people will return to your faith, your own blood relatives who have expelled you shall come back. And so panelo What did our Prophet system say? Or who did he quote, when he conquered Makkah? Who did he quote when he's standing on the Kaaba? Who did he quote when the people of Christ said, What are you going to do? What are we going to do with you? Right? And they said, You are a Han Kareem and grew up in Kareem, right? The brothers of use of say the same thing that you know we all brother we wronged you. You know who you

01:04:49--> 01:04:59

are brother You were wrong, you do something. So the Quran say this to the Prophet says that of and what does the process of respond, he responds by quoting us, just as he saw us of now, right on

01:05:00--> 01:05:40

Three bar de como yo, yo quiero la hula, there is no sin on you today, Allah will forgive you. Moving up to the fourth heaven The only thing we know about Idris is what Allah says in the Quran, what a foreigner who mccannon idea and that's all we need to know. We have raised him to a high place that's the only thing we know about Idris and so the Profit System is meeting someone whom Allah has described as in a high place and by the way, he's in the fourth heaven out of seven as a high place. Right? What a find out who mccannon Aliya and so our profit system is being told what to find, like the clock. We have raised your own rank as well. Right? How do you learn moose I both

01:05:40--> 01:06:26

have similar reasons. And in that, how rune was despised by his people and then accepted and Moosa is the one prophet that has the most similar experiences to our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Moosa has the greatest number of trials and tribulations that are similar to our process of them, and he has the second largest oma after our Prophet system. So his experience is unrivaled amongst the prophets and when the process in a met Musa Musa had a lot more experienced than him, because reprocessing is still in the middle of his data plus Moosa has six decades seven decades more than the Profit System. And so Moosa is being shown as some type of role model and how many

01:06:26--> 01:07:06

times that are processing him say, and this is an authentic ID, that when something happened that harmed him that irritated him, he said, Indeed, Moosa was hurt more than I was, and he was still patient, he kept on reminding himself of Musa right. Indeed, Moosa was harmed more than I was by his own people. And he kept his cool, he kept his patience, and of course, in the highest heaven, and remember, these are heavens and not Jannat. So don't think that Adam is in the first gen. And then in the No, these are not Gen not all the prophets are in the highest of Jenna. Right? So this is the common confusion that Adam is the lowest gender. No, he's not in the lowest Jenna, he's in the

01:07:06--> 01:07:46

lowest summer. And the two are not the same, as we said, they have been taken from their places, and they have been brought to the semi what to be welcoming parties for the profits of the locker it was send them right now they're not in gender, because gender has not been occupied. Since Adam has left it, right, gender is not occupied until after the Day of Judgment. So wherever the profits are, and they are as our profits, as Adam said, in their graves standing and praying because he saw Ibrahim in his grave standing and praying. The only exception to all of this is of course, Raisa, because Allah says what a find out who mccannon Alia that sorry, in Neeraj heruka in a year, that I will

01:07:46--> 01:08:24

raise you up to myself. So the only one who is physically had to come down to meet the Prophet system was ASAP, right. And this is a symbolism that he will come down again, because that's the whole point of him coming down towards the end of time, that he's come down once to meet the Profit System. And then he will come down again to meet his own at the end of times, and that's what's going to happen. So by by showing Ibrahim alayhis salaam, of course, the Profit System is being shown his own ancestor and the highest of all the profits because Moosa was indeed very high, but he was calling moolah and Kelly Mola is the one whom you speak to, Ibrahim was higher, because he was

01:08:24--> 01:09:11

Khalid will law. And our Prophet says that I'm set and Holly means close friend, confidant. And our Prophet says that I'm said, Allah has only taken me and Ibrahim Azadi. The only people that Ibrahim that Allah has taken as a holiday is basically Ibrahim alayhis. Salam and myself. There's only two people that have reached that status that the title of Allah and that is Ibrahim and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the fact that Ibrahim is sitting with his back on a day tomorrow more is of course completely appropriate. What is elevated marmore Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions what poor wakatobi mostof European mature while they will not move, it's in the Quran. Surah toto

01:09:11--> 01:09:20

while they tell Malmo and beighton Mahmood literally means the frequented house. Albanian Mahmoud means the frequented house and

01:09:22--> 01:10:00

we only have basically one Hadith about Albanian Mahmoud that is authentic, a different version that one had it. That's all. We have no other information about a debate in Malmo. And if you hear anything else, then trust me it is fabricated or weak. The only information we have about a debate tomorrow morning is that the profitsystem said it is a house dissimilar to the cab. In one version, it is the cab of the heavens, just like there's a cab on earth. And another version, it is above the cab on earth such that if it were to fall, it would fall on the cab on this earth. So it is above the cab of this earth and every single day, since a

01:10:00--> 01:10:47

law has created the creation. So way before the gobble was here, every single day 70,000 angels enter elevators more to basically do too often pray, and those 70,000 never return. And every single day this happens, do the math, after 10 days, you get 7 million after. So you do the math. And after a while, your brain brain starts spinning every day 70,000 angels who have never come before, and they're never going to come again, since the beginning of time, up until Yeoman, Tiana and Ibrahim is there, because he is the one who built the cabin on Earth. So he deserves to be associated with the cabin in the heavens. And we know that woman, Jean Solomon, the reward will be in accordance

01:10:47--> 01:11:27

with what you have done. Right? What you sacrifice what you did, a law will reward you in the same category as what you did. And so when Ibrahim alayhis salaam built a cabin on Earth, he was rewarded by being associated with the beta more in the heavens. And that's why the process of saw him with his back to beta migrating resting and relaxing over there. And if the angels are not allowed or not allowed to come back, Ibrahim is over there. Some handle, he has a higher status, right? If the angels can only come once Abraham Malik Sam is peaceful and content and relax that he is in the debate and more. Our time is up. As we said probably another three lessons maybe at the rate we're

01:11:27--> 01:11:44

going to follow maybe three or maybe we'll see if we can do it into our marriage. And as we said this is we have a lot of incidents and a lot of it the restaurant manager inshallah will continue next week. Before open the floor for q&a. Some announcements, firstly,

01:11:46--> 01:12:31

was the announcements. Firstly, the program this weekend, I hope that inshallah all of you are as excited as as I am about this program. We're having somebody who's a specialist in child psychiatry, someone who was the head child psychologists at the UT Medical Center in Houston, very prestigious position, he was there for many years. And now he's dedicated more of his time to the Muslim woman. He's a licensed counselor and licensed medical practitioner. And we will be doing a program that deals with dealing with teenagers basically. And therefore, on Saturday, starting at 1030. What time 1030, Saturday at 1030. This will be for a session just for the teenagers. And by teenagers, we mean

01:12:31--> 01:13:03

basically 11 and 12 and up so inshallah 11 to 12. And if you feel that your son who's maybe 10 is mature enough, then that's fine. But do realize that these are going to be topics that you understand teenagers faced with so you know your son better, and you know your daughter better, there will be very frank talk. And you understand what this Frank talk is, you know, it's not going to be that explicit. But at the same time, it's going to be some very explicit questions are going to be asked, and anonymous surveys are going to be done. Because we want to hear from them. What are their problems, you know, they can't come to us, they're too scared to come to us directly. Let them

01:13:03--> 01:13:39

come to us indirectly. They let them fill out the forms, you know, anonymously, and there's going to be surveys, there's going to be open q&a, there's going to be just chilling out time of course, there's gonna be lunch included as well. So, you know, have your kids dropped by 1030 no adults allowed this is a private, you know, for the for the teenagers basically. And you know, Doctor out of shape is going to be here, who's our guest. And he'll be, he has plenty of experience, especially with Muslim teenagers. So he'll be here up until was the timing 1030 to 330 1030 to answer and they will be lunch and some chilling out time. It's not just gonna be all lectures and stuff, some games

01:13:39--> 01:14:18

and activities. So 1030 to 330. Saturday night, at 630. There's a lecture for the converts, but it's open for everybody but it's going to be geared towards the converts about marriage in Islam, and basically some of the issues they need to know the fear of getting married, for example, some basic stuff for them. And inshallah Dr. Artist will also be our guest, but I will be the main speaker, but he has a lot of experience, by the way in marriage and in in youth. He has a lot of experience, but we wanted to emphasize one, we're doing a marriage thing with another speaker in two months, as you know. So that's one Saturday, two events on Saturday, on Sunday, 1030 to 330 will be the same

01:14:18--> 01:14:54

session but for the adults. For the adults, no teenagers allowed. And especially if your teenager came on Saturday, you really need to come on Sunday, because we will share with you the results of our surveys. Your own teenagers have filled out forms. Of course we don't know who is what they're not going to be with names. But the the comments that they have said the concerns that they have expressed, we will hear them and you will hear perhaps your own child speaking to you indirectly. And if it's not your child is the child of your brother or sister in this Masjid. Right. So this is something you need to be very familiar with. Do not think this is only a children's event. If you

01:14:54--> 01:15:00

are a parent, you need to send your child and usually show up yourself if your children are too

01:15:00--> 01:15:31

Young then you just show up yourself, you know to learn about teenagers, if you've already gone through the teenage years, I don't know it's up to you if you want to come or not, I don't know what to say, okay? I'm sure some of you have gone through the teenage years and you've already your kids already Mashallah adults, it's up to you if you want to come or not, I'm not saying anything. Or maybe we can benefit from your wisdom. How about this right? Well benefit from your experience because believe me, I need to know and I think many of us need to know we need to benefit from your wisdom and experience. So this is going to be Saturday and Sunday 1030 to 330. However, we need to

01:15:31--> 01:16:04

cater, we need to make sure the chairs are set up, we need to have appropriate lunch. So please register the registration forms are with brother Hasnain are going to hand them out. Just just register for it so that we know how many people will be coming in Sharla. And if you want to take a form for somebody, or you can do it online, if you know somebody who has not registered, do tell them to show up inshallah we'll try to accommodate but any lunch we need to know how many people are coming. So do try to do that insha Allah with Allah. With that we have just two three minutes for questions that we break for Salah inshallah, so questions for this.

01:16:19--> 01:16:26

So doctrina theme says can we derive from the hadith of Islam, the benefits of organic milk versus

01:16:27--> 01:16:31

ceremonially changed milk? Right? So very valid question.

01:16:32--> 01:16:42

Let me just say, though, that we cannot compare organic milk versus with those modified to homage to alcohol, right? So it's a bit of a stretch to compare there.

01:16:43--> 01:17:26

You know, there is a movement now in America, it's very small. But it was a movement to drink fresh, unpasteurized milk. And I was actually very surprised when I heard this. But when I went to Houston this last summer, I was told that there's a place that the farmers they come in the morning to sell the milk that they extracted one day ago, just literally and it's unpasteurized to get the full. Now I have never drunk that milk. But those who have told me his tastes completely different than pasteurized, and then this formerly modified, and I have no doubt personally that that is the case. Now, I mean, I don't know what to tell you other than it makes sense. But to derive this from the

01:17:26--> 01:17:27

Hadith, it's kinda sorta

01:17:32--> 01:17:37

it is the drink of fitrah. But there's nothing that goes against boiling it for pasteurization.

01:17:40--> 01:17:57

I have no doubt that if you try to genetically modify something, you're messing with the perfection of Allah. I have no doubt about that. So I mean, this isn't the Quran, you know, fella, you don't know how Allah, the shaitaan will try to cause you to change the creation of Allah. So we can derive this directly from the Quran to be honest.

01:18:09--> 01:18:34

We do not know any other authentic hadith about buraq or who wrote him or his description. What we know is exactly what I have said, smaller than a mule larger than a donkey. Right. And it's hoath goes where the eyesight can see. That's all that we know that and there's a tether, and there's the saddle. We don't know any other details about who has written buraq but it is not surprising.

01:18:40--> 01:18:58

I mean, you know, the source of that. That particular series used a book that is simply full of stories and I am a little bit more academically inclined that I just don't just quote these the book that he quoted, okay, sister in their backyards. hand raised. Yes.

01:19:01--> 01:19:23

Yes, I made a mistake. I said there's going to be a sister's head after two weeks ago, but I forgot that we had invited Dr. Arif Shuaib. So the sisters halaqa will be inshallah sometime in March inshallah. We'll announce it. Sorry, sorry, February, not that sometime in February inshallah. We'll announce it. So there's not going to be such just head off on Sunday. Yes. So going back to the milking

01:19:24--> 01:19:27

just like pork, why wasn't alcohol?

01:19:32--> 01:19:45

Why wasn't alcohol prohibited for earlier? omas? There's, there's no there's no explicit reason given in our texts. But it is possible some scholars have derived is that because our study

01:19:46--> 01:19:59

was the perfect and the perfection of this idea of all shades because the law clearly says in the Quran that we have given you this Koran that is more Haman on it, that is going to supersede all other previous

01:20:00--> 01:20:37

scriptures and shadows, and lots of hands on it says, of course, that this is the religion that will be manifest over all other. So because of this, Allah gave us a shed er that is the most perfect. And he might have allowed imperfections and other Shetty as maybe because the people were not qualified or they didn't deserve those perfections. And sometimes it was intentionally made difficult as a punishment for them as what happened with the bunny. And sometimes it was maybe because they were not, they didn't have enough Eman to live up to it. So these are the wisdoms that we can derive apart from this we do not know, why was it that a lot a lot of the previous shaders

01:20:37--> 01:20:59

this issue, but he prohibited it upon us because it is true. The brothers fact is true. That the previous Jedi as did not prohibit wine. However, we have references that the prophets of Allah never drank. So even if it was allowed for them, the prophets never did it. And this in and of itself shows the perfection. And Allah knows best.

01:21:01--> 01:21:05

Still, there are some Christians that don't drink Baptists. Yeah, go ahead.

01:21:13--> 01:21:15

The celebration of his stolen marriage.

01:21:17--> 01:22:00

As we already said, there is no precedent for the date or the month that occurred, we have no clue. And therefore to specify, is really to speak from no knowledge, number one, number two to take this day as they are doing extra things. And as we know, we try to stick to our profit system and the sahabas actions. They have the purest system, and they had the best knowledge. And if they didn't do it, then we really should avoid it. And there there is nothing authentic to tell us to celebrate on, you know, is the 27th of Rajab, or the 15th of Shabbat or all of these dates, really all of these dates there. It's just simply best to avoid them. And along with the best final question, I saw a

01:22:00--> 01:22:01

hand raised your final question.

01:22:07--> 01:22:49

We will talk about this when we wrap up. But it is very clear that he went physically. And this is something that there is drama in Sunni Islam. No scholar ever said that he went only by the solar imagination. Because if you say that he went by the soul or that it was a dream, there is nothing miraculous about it. So handily the astroglia Abdi Why, what's the big deal? And the next morning when he woke up, and he told the Porsche that last night, I want anyone that we can go to the moon and back in a dream who's going to deny us, right? You know, we can go across the world, we can go to different lands. What's so strange, the very fact that orange found this strange. And they said,

01:22:50--> 01:23:29

You expect us to believe this? That's what the question is, right? And a worker was called acidic, because it's a physical journey. Had it been an imaginary journey, a journey of the mind, a dream? What's the point of sub handling the Asahi? Abdi? What's the point of? Why should we believe you? Right? So there is unanimous consensus that Israel and Mirage took place, Pharaoh he will just set the rule, he will just say that with the body and the soul, ie in the physical jacoba. And they are also rewired and reports that show that the process of him says that when he came back, his bed was still warm, right? Which means the entire journey took you know, few minutes, 510 minutes because

01:23:29--> 01:23:57

it's a different dimension. You know, Baraka is going at the speed of light, love, His name comes from lightning. He gets there, he prays to the gods, he then goes up, that's a different dimension. There is no time and space there. He comes back down, he comes back and his bed is still warm. So all of these clearly show that it is a physical journey, and we'll talk about this in more detail. inshallah. Whenever we finish with this, we conclude for this week and Charles you have put but this week, Friday, and then on Saturday, Sunday, I hope that all of you show up in Sharla 14 is your thing was that
