Episode Notes

In this final part on the series of Isra Wal Miraj, Shaykh Yasir Qadhi divulges details on what transpired with the Prophet ﷺ after his meeting with Allah and what were the scenes that he witnessed.

The Prophet ﷺ narrates that after he received the command for salah he entered into Jannah. And he saw tents made out of pearls and the soil was made out of musk (perfume). It is noteworthy that the Prophet ﷺ said he ‘saw Jannah’ – and seeing is not actually entering Jannah. So he did not enter but just surveyed Jannah. The Prophet ﷺ saw many punishments of Hell spread over several hadiths. In each hadith he saw the punishment and then asked Jibreel “who are these people?” In one hadith the Prophet ﷺ said that he saw the punishment of the one who stole an orphans money. That they had noses like that of camels; and they were eating coals made out of fire. Their mouths would swallow the coals and it would come out of their anuses.

Did the Prophet ﷺ see Allah? Aisha RA has said “whoever says the Prophet ﷺ has seen his Lord has said a huge lie against Allah” because Allah says in the Qur’an “eyes cannot encompass Him”.

Another question debated by some early scholars and still today: Was al Isra wal Mi’raj a dream, or an actual physical journey? Listen intently to unearth valid pointers and a detailed discussion on the truth behind this.

When he came back to Mecca, the Prophet ﷺ went back to sleep and woke up in the Haram. This shows therefore the actual Isra took place from the Haram to Bait ul Maqdis and then back to the Haram. He said, “When I woke up I felt an anxiety in that how am I going to tell the people about what has happened to me, what will they say? They will reject me!”. This shows the human nature of the Prophet ﷺ; it also shows Allah instructed the Prophet ﷺ to tell the people as he wouldn’t have told them without Allah’s permission.

Some benefits of the Isra wal Mi’raj:

  • The event is mentioned in the Qur’an and its narrated in the Mutawatir – the authentic narrations that have been narrated by many companions. Anyone who denies this event denies the authenticity of the Qur’an and the authentic hadith.
  • This miracle and gift occurs at a time at great sadness and was completely unexpected.The gift came after the Prophet ﷺ lost his wife, his uncle and was rejected and stoned by the people of Ta’if. This shows us with every difficulty there is ease; the greater the difficulty the greater the ease if we remain patient and steadfast. The Prophet ﷺ had to suffer so much to obtain the gift of the Isra wal Mi’raj.

What are the theological benefits behind this miraculous journey?

  1. Allah is above us – the very fact that the Prophet ﷺ went all the way up .He is above us.
  2. Heaven and Hell right  exist now as we speak.
  3. The fitrah is the purity represented by milk; Islam fits in with our being and creation and it doesn’t corrupt us.

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu was setting them up in a Mohammed Ali he was happy as mine. We have some audio problems

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

for the Bruce Lee are

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

testing testing Is that better?

00:00:35--> 00:01:20

Okay. So in shala last Wednesday we had discussed the journey of industrial metrology and we had reached the place where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had been assigned the 50 solar watt. And then, if you like the descent began, and the problem with as we said, The dissenter, the problem with even most of the narration of historic Mirage, it is almost impossible to piece together the exact order of events, we simply have a hadith. And therefore from this point onwards, what we have is just a collection of incidents. We don't know the exact order they occurred in and of the first incidents that I will mention, we don't know chronologically which one came first. There's a very

00:01:20--> 00:01:55

long Hadith and Muslim environment where the Prophet sister mentions one incident that that that he came across. And then there are other Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim about other incidents of this hadith and Muslim Atma, the Prophet says that I'm said, on the night that I went on Islamic mirage. I smelled a fragrance that was very sweet. And so I asked God, what is this beautiful fragrance? So gibreel said, this is the fragrance of the one who used to comb the hair of the daughter of Fidel

00:01:56--> 00:02:47

Machito, to immunity from the one who used to comb the hair of the daughter of Freetown and her children. So the fragrance is coming from her and her children. So the Prophet system said, I asked you believe, what is their story? How come their fragrance is so strong? So gibreel said, once, when she was combing the hair of the daughter of fit around, the comb fell from her hands? And she said, Bismillah so the daughter said, Surely you mean, the name of my father? Because for her daughter's perspective, my father is God. And so this woman said, No, my Lord, and your Lord is a law and the Lord of your father is a law. So she told this girl that your father is not God is not Allah,

00:02:48--> 00:02:53

rather, Allah is my Lord and your Lord and the Lord of your father. And

00:02:54--> 00:03:03

the girl said, Do you want me to tell my father you said this? And this woman whose name we don't even know said, Yes, go ahead.

00:03:04--> 00:03:51

And so one found found out he called this slave girl because she's a servant and a slave girl, and asked her Are you saying you have Rob besides me? Because pheromone used to say hon qumola. Ella, and for us to say as the Koran says, All the hell alimta, local Manila hinjewadi Did I ever teach you there's another god besides me, because he has to teach his people about God. And this is exactly what he asked this lady as well. Did I teach you to do? No, there's another god besides me. And so the woman said, with the same bravery that she said to this young girl, she said to the crown himself, she said, Yes, my lord, and your Lord is a law. My Rob and your Rob is a law. And so for

00:03:51--> 00:04:40

our order that a cauldron be put a fire, and it was boiled in front of her. And she was told that she has to throw her own children into the fire. She has to throw her own children into the fire one by one. We don't know how many children she had. She has to throw her own children to fire one by one or else acknowledged around US, Europe. And so faced with this dilemma, faced with this dilemma, she said, I have one request. ofera Sharon said what he said that you bury me and my children all together, you take all of our flesh and bones, and you bury them in one location, don't split them up into different locations. So for Allen said, this is a condition that we have upon you, if that's

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

what you want, then you will get this condition fulfilled. And so one by one, her children were thrown in, until finally the last one that was left was her baby that was suckling at her bosom. And this was the one that she could not she paused at and so

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

The baby spoke to her own his own mother, we don't know as a boy or girl and said, Oh, my mother go forth and drop yourself in, proceed forward, because this punishment of this world is nothing compared to the punishment of the next. And so she threw herself in. And then even abus commented that there were only four who spoke from the cradle from from being a baby. And he said this one and he said when he was a baby, and the story of George which we mentioned in a in a huddle after Friday night, and the witness of use of this has been about his opinion that showerhead of use of is a baby. We talked about that when we when we said the class that it doesn't seem to be slaughter

00:05:50--> 00:06:32

Hadith, it's something that had been Ibis derived, and Allah knows best but that is not a true thing that child use of is not a baby. But this hadith clearly mentions the story of ferons, doctors, seamstress or helper. And what is amazing is that somehow, although we don't even know her name, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam recorded her plight, and narrated it to the oma. her courage and bravery Allah had willed that it would be preserved for the oma, her sacrifice. Allah had willed that the people of Freetown might not know of her sacrifice, but it would be remembered and mentioned by the greatest oma and the largest oma and the world would know of her story and the

00:06:32--> 00:07:12

story of her children, and she will become a role model for all of the future Muslim generations. So Allah preserved this story. And it is amazing that this story, even though it happened in the formosus, oma, yet it is preserved in our oma and the Eman is, of course exemplary, and yet it is preserved in our oma and it is not preserved in the oma of Masada himself because the story is not mentioned in the Old Testament, and it's not found in the Jewish tradition and scriptures. The Prophet system also said in Sahib, Bahati, that after Salah had been prescribed upon him, through Mahalo to Jenna, then I entered into gender, then I entered into gender. And I saw in it tents made

00:07:12--> 00:07:54

out of pearls. And I saw that the soil of gender was made out of Musk, which is, of course, the most expensive perfume. We already mentioned last time that the wisdom of entering gender after meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala is obvious, and that is that the priority is to meet a law, it is appropriate that as he is going up, he is going up directly to meet a low once he meets a London meeting is over, then he can go and see the other sites that are larger, which it had will for him. And this is exactly what happened, that after the meeting with a law that all of these other incidents happen. Here we have a theological question and that is, it is narrated, or at least this

00:07:54--> 00:08:35

is the interpretation of many scholars, that nobody has entered Jenna since the time of Adam alayhis salaam. And this is something that perhaps there's even some references in Hadith literature as well, that the first person to enter Jannah after admiring His love will be our Prophet Mohammed. So some of this has been narrated in some a hadith. So how and this is after the Day of Judgment is over, after the set off all of this when the doors will be open for the first time. Of course as for the issue of the Shaheed a lot of people get confused this Shaheed he is not living in gender, the Shaheed is flying around in gender, right, there's a difference between living in gender occupying

00:08:35--> 00:09:18

gender versus seeing gender, right. And the Shahid is not in his body in gender to show he is in the body of a Greenberg. And he is hanging from the chandelier of gender, right, but he's not actually in living in gender. So he's close, but not quite in there. This is the Shaheed requestion, therefore comes with a profit system. How do we how do we interpret this and to be honest, there is no clear cut interpretation, one can say that the phrase the first person to enter gender after Adam is our Profit System still applies because he entered his own marriage, and then he enters you will enter it in your milk Liam, so there's no contradiction, that the phrase that the first person to

00:09:18--> 00:09:59

enter gender after Adam will be our Prophet Mohammed says Adam is true, but except that he entered it once at Israel and marriage. And once he will enter it, of course for the final time, and that is after yom Okayama. Another interpretation is that when he entered agenda, he is entering it. Again, similar to the Shaheed looking at it or, and there are some versions of the Hadith which says that to an agenda, I saw agenda, and that's different than saying enter agenda, right. So to see gender is different than entering gender. So perhaps this is an uninterpreted that he didn't actually enter agenda, because there's also another theological point and this is not

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

as explicit but there is this point of whoever enters Jen will never exit from it. Especially when that when the you know, the the hisab happens. So how does one interpret the process of came in and out? Again, there's no clear cut response, we have one of two interpretations. Firstly, it's an exception, which is possible. Secondly, he didn't actually enter rather he surveyed gender. And this is also a plausible interpretation, which is supported by some of the Hadith that mentioned his start with marriage. The process, that's all he said about by the way of, of this entering of gender, the profitsystem also said he saw many of the punishments of help. And this perhaps gives

00:10:45--> 00:11:24

credence to the fact he didn't actually enter gender, because obviously, he didn't enter hell, obviously. Right. So when he's describing gender, then he's describing how this looks like he's describing it as an overseer, somebody who's looking in peering in telling us what his agenda and what his agenda. So this does seem to make sense that the Profit System is basically telling us as a description of what he saw, and not necessarily as somebody having entered gender. But if somebody were to say this, it is not problematic also, that he entered gender. Of course, obviously, he did not enter with a Buddha, the fire of hell, but you saw the punishments of the fire of hell. And the

00:11:24--> 00:12:03

number of them are mentioned explicitly. And I'm putting together a lot of different narrations. Again, the process is giving many different IDs. When I went to Israel, I saw this punishment when I went to Israel, I saw that punishment. So I'm putting it together. This is not in one headed that all of these punishments are narrative. So in one headed the profitsystem said, I saw the punishment of the one who stole an orphans money, who stole orphans money, that they had noses like that of camels, disfigured, they're looking ugly, and they would be eating coals made out of fire, and their mouths would swallow these coals, and it would come out through their anus. And that's exactly what

00:12:03--> 00:12:41

Allah says in the Quran, that those who eat. And while at the time a woman in my corner, people donate him now that they're eating the fire of health. So the process of them said, I saw people that were literally eating coals from jahannam, and is going through their bodies. And these were the people who would eat orphans, wealth and property. The Profit System said and one headed that he saw people who had nails of copper, and they were scratching their bodies and their faces with this. And these were the people who used to back bite all the time, speaking of others, so their flesh will be disfigured on the day of judgment because they would disfigure the flesh of others because

00:12:41--> 00:13:22

when you back a bite, then you are scoring their flesh, their honor, their prestige. So in retaliation, this will be the punishment for the one who does this. The process that I've said I saw in each of these, he said he sees something he asked you beware these people, and each of these ones he cannot understand. He asked you will Who are they? Julian tells them the problems that I saw people they had in front of them pure meat, and they had rotten infested meat. And they were eating the rotten and infested meat and avoiding the pure meat. And I said, as I said to God, who are these people, and gibreel said, These are the people that used to for indicate they would leave the Hillel

00:13:22--> 00:13:38

meaning their spouses, and they would go to the how long, they would leave the hamlet and they would go to the harem. In another Hadith the process of him said that he saw people with such large bellies that they could not stand up, they were on the ground, and

00:13:40--> 00:14:16

animals were being brought over them to trample over them as a punishment. And when he asked who they were jubilees said, these were the people who would get their money from Riba. These are the people get their money from Riba from interest. And of course, the connotation here is greed. The connotation here is go get as fat as you can, because that's what you want to do. You want it to get money, go and get your fatness and these are your animals and these are all that you own. Because once upon a time when you were rich, you had a lot of animals It was a part of a package of being rich, in our time is your favorite you have fancy cars and houses in those days. If you are rich,

00:14:16--> 00:14:51

you have to have a lot of animals right? So the point being here, these are your animals see what see what good they have done you on the Day of Judgment. And the process of also said that he saw people who are cutting their own lips and their tongues will they do Billa with nails have scissors of copper and scissors of punishment and fire and he asked people he asked you Bill who these people were gibreel said these were the people who used to tell others to do good and they would forget themselves and we seek Allah's refuge from being amongst such people. The process and have also said and I saw that Jen

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

and I saw that gel, and one of his eyes was bloated one of his eyes was

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

incur basically not seeing so he's describing the job in another headache the Profit System said that I saw the job and I will tell you something about the job that no other profit has ever told his people and that is that his left eye is like a rotten grape so one of his eyes is basically bloated and not normal. So you look at it you know that he's deformed so and and the process that I've said no that the job is out water an hour is one I'd know that the job is hour an hour means he is one it. These are some of the things that we hear about when the processor was coming back down. We don't have any detailed narration as we do when he was going up. He met every single Heaven, he

00:15:43--> 00:15:54

met a certain profit. We don't have any such narrations. All we have is these tidbits, we put them together. And Allah knows what order it happened in. We don't know the exact order it happened in

00:15:55--> 00:16:40

the Prophet system came back down to Jerusalem. And he then rewrote Brock. So Brock is tied up in Jerusalem, right? Remember, Brock is an animal that is for this world to transport him from Mecca to Jerusalem. As for the transportation from Jerusalem to the heavens, this is what is called a mirage. So when he gets back down to Jerusalem, he then rise the bedrock back to Medina. And there are some narrations that are not fully authentic. But there's no problem in them to affirm them as well, that the Prophet system passed by three caravans of the courage that he recognized, he recognized three caravans of the whorish on his way back. And on one of them he recognized certain of the people of

00:16:40--> 00:17:15

the finish because again, everybody knows everybody and muck up. In another one, he was feeling thirsty. So he drank some of the water from the the there's an urn or a public, if you like, well, that every not a well, but a big canister that everybody is going to drink from in the caravan. So he just took a canister from this and he drank because this is not private property. This is where the large earned that the water is in. And in a third caravan. He said that I saw so and so. And he mentioned him by name, looking for a camel that they had lost, they could not find it, they could not find a camel, and they were searching for a camel that had been lost. So these are the three

00:17:15--> 00:17:58

caravans that he said that he saw, when he came back to Makkah, the prophet system, went back to sleep, he said, and he woke up in the harem, he woke up in the harem. And this clearly shows therefore that the actual is slaw took place from the harem itself to beta democritus. And then back to the harem. And this is in conformity with the Quran because the Koran says, So handle the sob Abdi he lay them. Meanwhile, masjidul harami lol masjidul alcocer. So any report that says the processor was sleeping in his house or in the house of omiana. We interpret this by saying he was sleeping there, then Jubilee took him to the house. And then from the house of God took him to Bay

00:17:58--> 00:18:09

to mock this then from baitul, mock this drill brought him back to the bottom. So the Profit System, the actual incident took place, from one messenger to the other messages from the Mecca to Jerusalem.

00:18:10--> 00:18:53

The processor when he woke up, he himself told us the story. So this door we have in the first person, this story we have in the first person that the Prophet system said, When I woke up the next morning, I felt an anxiety, I felt an anxiety about how am I going to tell the people of what happened to me. And the shows that Allah had told him that he has to tell the people because the Prophet system never did anything without being told that the the role of the Prophet is that he has to be told what to do, he doesn't do anything of his own accord. So Allah must have told the media to tell the people. So the process of him said, I felt an anxiety, how am I going to tell the people

00:18:53--> 00:19:35

and what will they say, and they are going to reject me. And this shows his humanity, that despite being the prophet of God, so lilavati, who was setting them, he's also a human being he feels the anxiety, he feels the stress that any of us would feel for our mundane jobs. Can you imagine the stress for his job? The stress, we're having to tell people about this? And how are people going to respond back? And maybe if we, if we can close the door, maybe we better let the kids play, but they shouldn't be disturbing us as well. So he said I woke up in the morning, and I had an anxiety How am I going to tell the people about this? And as I was sitting anxious and nervous and worried,

00:19:36--> 00:19:43

anxious and nervous and worried he's sitting in front of the cabinet, Allah azza wa jal will prophesy, that

00:19:44--> 00:19:52

the I do will law he Abuja magrabi. Right, the enemy of a lot of Buddha had passed by me and he saw me in that state.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

He saw me sitting, anxious and worried and grief struck. has seen

00:20:00--> 00:20:29

Something he's very sad because he knows his people are going to mock him. He's wondering how am I going to tell the people this? And so a Buddha had said to him, in a sarcastic manner, Columbo says, What is the matter with you? Why is this anything happened? And so the Prophet system because he cannot tell a lie. Even if it's Abuja, one of the process of them said, Yes, something happened. So Abuja has said, What held them in shape? What happened? So the Prophet says that I'm said,

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

yesterday, last night,

00:20:33--> 00:21:20

I was taken from here to Jerusalem. Assyria be mudmaster that halloumi debated Marcus. So Abu Jamal was shocked. And he said, and you are now here amongst us, you claim to go to Jerusalem, and then you here amongst us the next morning from us via the vein of Medina, you're now waking up amongst us. And so the process of himself said, he didn't know whether to make fun of me then, or to wait so that I would not retract when he called the other people. Right. So he's being serious right now. Abu Jamal is being serious. The President said he didn't know should he reject me now? Or should he delayed the rejection? You know, like to to, to let the bait go more to make sure that people will

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

hear this? So

00:21:23--> 00:22:03

the President said yes, I'm waking up amongst you here. So I will just have said, If I call your people, meaning the kurush, will you tell them what you have just told me? Because if I tell them, there's not going to believe me, right? If I call the kurush? Will you tell them exactly what you have just told me? And so the profitsystem said, Yes, I will. And so Abuja had began screaming out to the people, hey, Matt Shara. But he guided me to do a, which is the great grandfather of the Irish, come forth, we have an announcement to make. And so the people came slowly from the places of MCC as a small city, as you know, and Abuja is a leading figure, and he's making this announcement.

00:22:03--> 00:22:41

Eventually, the people come, and they all came and they sat down around a Buddha standing there, the process is sitting there. And there's this announcement, something strange, these two enemies are saying there's an announcement to be made. So the people are very curious what is going on. And so a Buddha says, tell them what you promised you would tell them, You promised, right? Don't go back now. Right? Tell them what you just told me. You promised you're going to tell them. And so the Prophet system said that last night. Now notice here that Mirage is not mentioned. So perhaps Allah told the process of them to mention the issue of the israa. Right, I went to Beit democritus. And I

00:22:41--> 00:23:27

came back and the mayor Raji talked to the Muslims later on. So last night, I went to beta mock this, and I want to pray in the masjid that outside the beta mock the so the people, the process of himself is narrating this, right? The people began reacting in different ways. Some of them began most of just like clapping, like in what is going on here. Others put their hands on their heads not knowing what to do. And others began snickering and laughing. But they didn't know what to do, because he's saying it seriously. Right? That he's never known to have told the lie before. So people are reacting, basically in shock what exactly to do, until one of them said, and he had been

00:23:27--> 00:24:14

there to basically mock this. Can you describe it for us? Because everybody knew that the process of had never been debated in office, right? He's never been to be to mock this. So one of them who had been there, put him to the test. And he said, Can you describe it for us? And so the profitsystem said, for the hep two anatomy, I began describing the beta mock this until they began to ask me about specifics that I wasn't able to recall. And again is the shows his humanity, that he, he is a human being. And he he went in the middle of the night, he prayed in the masjid that we already said had must have been resurrected, the image of which had been resurrected, but the city, the streets,

00:24:14--> 00:24:34

the sidewalk, he went through it. But he doesn't remember every single thing, right? Imagine when you drive through a city at night, what do you actually remember of the city? And so as they began to ask him questions, the Profit System said, his deficit for the year I got confused. Again, again and again and again. We see his humanity I got confused what to do. And

00:24:36--> 00:24:46

I became so worried and anxious that I wasn't able to answer that I had never been so worried before ever.

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

And then the word actually quarterback is used and quarterback means terrified. It literally means terrified. I was so terrified that I wasn't able to respond that I had never been

00:25:00--> 00:25:36

This terrified before. Now, why is he terrified? Because this is a very legitimate question from their perspective. Can you describe the city? And from his perspective, he doesn't remember each and every detail. Somebody is going to say, Where was the other another will say, what was the tallest building and other will say this and that. So each one is asking a question that perhaps, you know, if you really had memorized the city in your head a few days, you would know it, but the process of him only went in at night, prayed and then came back. He doesn't remember all of these details. And so he is now terrified. What am I going to tell them now? And he said, as I was waiting for what to

00:25:36--> 00:25:42

respond, I saw in the distance, beta lock this rising up in front of me.

00:25:43--> 00:26:24

They told me this rising up in front of me, until I saw it, descending beyond the house of Aki even bought him his cousin update of Navy pilot, right. And this is the house that he grew up in, because I brought him had died. And our team is now living in it. Right. So this is his house, basically. So you can imagine basically, you know, until it is behind my house, basically what he's saying the house that he grew up in, not the house he's currently living in, that's called Aegis house, the house that I grew up in, and no question they asked of me, except that I saw the beta mock this right basically being shown to me, and I looked at them and I answered every question that they had,

00:26:24--> 00:26:50

looking at beta lock this in front of me. And of course, this the garage could not see anything of this happening. Until finally one of them said, As for the descriptions of beta and then of Jerusalem, then he is accurate. Everything that we've quizzed him, he seems to know. And it was at that time that and even he Shan mentioned this, that the the profitsystem said,

00:26:51--> 00:27:27

I will give you some signs as well. When he mentioned the three caravans he mentioned, the first caravan is of so and so and they will be returning soon because they were the closest to the city. The second caravan is so and so. And they had lost a camel and you can ask them about that camel, they were searching for it. The third caravan is such and such, and they had this urn of water that I drank from. So he described every one of these three caravans and in the version that they've been a sham of Buddha has said if this is the case, then the caravan should be coming. If you saw them at such and such a place. The caravan should be coming right now because it was very close to Mecca.

00:27:28--> 00:28:04

And the President said I saw them at this place and while they're discussing, the news arrives at the caravan is entering Mecca. And so Abuja goes and sees and it is exactly as the process of described, and he comes back and saying, This is clear sorcery. This is sad. This is sorcery, they cannot respond to this. Here, there's a phrase here that has caused a lot of a lot of scholars, some issues and problems and the phrase occurs in divination only, it doesn't occur in Bukhari Muslim, or the six books of Hadith. It occurs and it'd be a sham, and it doesn't happen. It's not and therefore, we can be a little bit lacks about this phrase and say perhaps it's not accurate.

00:28:04--> 00:28:30

Unfortunately, a lot of the translators of Sierra and authors of cod write this because even Hisham mentions it. And this phrase says, when the news spread amongst the Muslims, some of them couldn't grasp it, and they left the religion is due. Right. Now, this is problematic for a number of reasons. Most importantly, we don't have a single narration of any Muslim becoming motivated in the McCarthy era.

00:28:32--> 00:28:39

We don't have any narration of a motet in the McCarthy era. And this contradicts what we know for a fact.

00:28:40--> 00:29:11

an admittance of a body, that when, in the ninth year of the hijra, sorry, in the ninth seventh year of the major seventh year of the hedgerow, when Abu sufian was in Jerusalem, and the Prophet system wrote a letter to heraclius, the professors that wrote a letter to heraclius heraclius, asked Abu sufian a series of questions about the process and his message I was with him was on a Muslim at the time. And of the questions he asked, has any one of his faith ever left the faith after having embraced it?

00:29:12--> 00:29:35

And Abu sufian said, No, this has never happened. This Hadeeth isn't it? It's a very beautiful, long narration, we'll come to it when we talk about the letters the process of them said heraclius asked like 20 questions to Sophia, wanting to find out who this man is, what is his message? What is his lineage? What is he saying? Where is he coming from all of these questions. And one of the questions was, tell me about his followers?

00:29:36--> 00:30:00

Do they increase or decrease the increase who follows them, the meek and the rich, the meek and the poor, or the rich and the nobles know the meek and the poor? Do his followers ever leave the fate after converting? No, they never leave the faith. And then Heraclitus explains that this is the sign of a true faith that the meek and the poor follow before the rich and the elite, that the faith increases and not decrease

00:30:00--> 00:30:10

He says, and that nobody ever leaves a true faith. Right. So I will Sophia is saying, in the seventh year of the law, that he's never heard of a motet.

00:30:11--> 00:30:15

And yet here in Ebony Shall we have because of the story of of

00:30:17--> 00:30:54

his, even his Sham says, some people tend to write a lot who are them. But many of the scholars have said that because we don't have an authentic chain for this, this story should not be relied upon, because it doesn't even make sense that in the Mexican era, anybody would have become a motet. And of course, it was at this time when the news reached abubaker. so deeply, authentically narrated in authority and in a number of books, that before the Prophet system could tell aboubaker because he was in the masjid, he woke up in the masjid abubaker is in his house, one of the kurush came running to obika and said, Do you know what your companion has just said? Do you know what your companion

00:30:54--> 00:31:26

saw a book has just said, said what? He said. Your companion claims to have gone all the way to Jerusalem, which is a month journey, and back, which is another man's journey. And he did all of this in one night. So the Prophet systems, Abu Bakar said, and this shows his intelligence. He didn't say Yes, he did that. He said, If he said that, then it must be true. Because you I don't know what yours I don't know. Maybe you're lying to me. Right? If he said that, then he must be saying the truth. So the man said to him,

00:31:27--> 00:32:07

or to set depot Do you believe him in such a claim to solve dico who famously either you believe him in such a claim and so a worker said, also depot FEMA, who are gentleman's attic, I believe him in something that is even more amazing than this. He claims that the revelation from above the seven heavens comes to him instantaneously, which is more amazing just to go to Jerusalem and come back or that Allah is communicating with him instantaneously. And so for Soumya bizarre because of the because of this abubaker was called us to do from this time onward, he got the title the lockup of Abu Bakar. Us Abu Bakr.

00:32:08--> 00:32:15

Now we've already mentioned that Allah mentions this, the Islam in one surah and the Mirage and another surah.

00:32:16--> 00:33:01

The Israel is of course mentioned in Sudan, Islam, and the Mirage or insert or details of the marriage, I mentioned ensuited a najem. And it is interesting to note that pseudo tell is raw begins with the it's raw. And it's just one idea. That's it. And the bulk of the sutra, especially the first two pages, talks about Bani Israel Eve, and it talks about the hood and the transgressions of the hood. It's amazing that as an introduction, the Islam immediately jumps into the sanctity of beta democritus and the holiness of beta democritus. And then what is going to happen towards the end of times about baytril Mk dysphagia. afero de leus. Who would you want to hold on mesogenic?

00:33:01--> 00:33:22

Amada, Hulu awada. Mara, what do you have buruma aloe vera and some other ma have interpreted this verse to be something that might happen. Now somewhere that I have interpreted this that the second threat might be something we are still awaiting and a large surgeon knows best. And as for sort of the najem of course, I'd mentioned issues of the of the marriage

00:33:23--> 00:33:32

to theological questions. Firstly, did the Prophet system see his Lord did the process that him see a lagenda gelato.

00:33:33--> 00:34:25

We have narrations from some of the Sahaba where there seems to have been some slight difference of opinion. It is narrated from above and wondering why that he said he saw his Lord or Oh, and from our issue inside Bahati. The Prophet says, Sorry, our issue says this hadith is in Bahati. He said men had deaths under Mohammed and Salallahu it he was setting them up the who soccer the Alma de la Hill feria, whoever says that the Prophet system has seen his Lord has said a huge lie, a massive lie against Allah. Because Allah says in the Quran, LA to the Ricoh, hula bizarre eyes cannot encompass him. eyes cannot encompass him. So Arusha said this. And Masaru who is one of the students

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

of the Sahaba was sitting there and so much rock sitting behind the curtain because I never appeared publicly, I shall never appeared publicly, she appeared behind the curtain or the hijab, way that sell to Mohammed anfis aluminum and voila, a hijab. Allah says no Koran, about the wives of the process, and that if you're going to speak to them for anything, speak from behind a hijab, and this hijab was a hijab above and beyond what normal women have to wear. This hijab was a hijab that physically separated them from men. So the regular hijab we all know what it is right? But this was a level of hijab

00:35:00--> 00:35:31

That they could not even see the, the the figure of the mother of the believers, she has to be behind an actual curtain. And even when she went outside if she would have an actual curtain outage that she would put on her camel. So here in her house, she's teaching there's a physical curtain, so much rope is behind the curtain, and he was loosening with his back on the wall. And when I said this Maduro is narrating he said, I stood up, meaning I went forward. And I said, Yeah, Mama, my mother.

00:35:32--> 00:35:46

Allow me to ask something and don't get angry at me. Allow me to ask something and don't get angry. This Hadith is as a Muslim Muslim says. Didn't Allah subhana wa tada say in the Quran? What are our who've been

00:35:48--> 00:36:33

around has gotten wrong? And what are our overkill mubin. So he quotes to is in the Koran, which says and he saw him in the highest place, and he saw him. And for Canada, Cabo San Diego adna, he was closer than to both lengths. So he responds back to Panama. My hair is standing on end because of what you're saying. In other words, I'm trembling. How dare you say that he saw a lot. I was the first person to ever ask the processor about these verses. I should think I was the first person to ask the process about these verses. That is God. The reference is to read one of our da who knows that an Oprah

00:36:34--> 00:36:51

movie in sakana, Cabo San Diego, Aetna, all of these references are to Djibouti, not to Allah, gender gelato. And then she said to myself, have you not read in the Quran that Allah says in the Quran, that not to recover, absorb, light to recover, absorb,

00:36:52--> 00:37:35

absorb, eyes cannot encompass him, and he encompasses all eyes. Spiritual verse, led to the recovery of sorrow. Well, who are you the record of a sore eyes cannot encompass him, but he knows what your eyes are seeing and he can encompass your eyes. And have you not read in the Quran, Walmart Canada, New Colombo La Ilaha and only water hegemon or user or surah that Allah says in the Quran, it is not permissible is not allowed for any man to speak to Allah, except it be through inspiration, or from behind a curtain or an angel comes and communicates or less there's three things either I inspire directly into his heart

00:37:36--> 00:38:19

or he speaks from behind the curtain or an angel comes and speaks to him. So notice here beautiful here that Isha clearly knows her stuff. I just quoted versus left and right mushroom thing she's out he's outwitted it. She's like, come on, doesn't look on say he saw him. He saw him. Right What Nakamura Who? He saw him so much Raka saying I've read the Quran he clearly says he saw him. He was saying been there done that I've talked to him directly. I know exactly what these verses refer to. And they refer to gibreel and not to Allah and they cannot refer to Allah because Allah says that to the absorbed eyes cannot encompass him. And Allah says, No man can speak to Allah except from behind

00:38:19--> 00:38:32

the curtain. And this is clearly proven in a hadith in Sahih Muslim that a Buddha LFR you know the Allahu Allah and asked him directly and this hadith is a Muslim Yasuda, la holla at

00:38:33--> 00:38:42

you cannot get more explicit. Did you see your Lord? Did you see your Lord? And the Prophet says and responded, new rune and

00:38:43--> 00:39:05

neuron, hon. There was light, how could I see him? There was light, how could I see him? And the scholars have said the meaning here is there was the light of a loss of a job. There was the light of a loss of a job because another had youth as a Muslim says, Hey, job Oh, who knows?

00:39:06--> 00:39:21

Hey, job, woohoo, no, Allah has a hijab of nor Allah has a hijab of No, no kashia who the rocket super hard to watch he meant to her in a bizarre human colloquy, if a law were to lift this veil.

00:39:23--> 00:40:00

Then, the rays that come from his face super hard to watch he hit so hard means the rays literally so hot of the chumps is super hot. That means the rays, the rays that come from his face, would destroy everything that it sees, which means everything because Allah sees everything, right. So from this, the scholars have said that Allah zoa gel, he is of course a type anything his own we affirm the language and we don't affirm how Allah says he is notice somehow what he what. So Allah is known and allows guidance is known and Allah has created the neural all of this is the

00:40:00--> 00:40:36

Have a local noticed similar to when a lot is new and we affirm a lot is new how he is you know we don't think our mind should not think just like we say Allah is living but we don't think how Allah is hearing but we don't think how Allah is seeing what we don't think how every name or attribute we affirm it but we don't we shouldn't think out we know the Arabic Meaning we don't think how it's not part of our what Allah has told us to do. So Allah has said he is new, and that new is so powerful the process that I was saying that it would have destroyed the whole creation. And this is proven in the Quran itself in the story of Musa right in the story of Musa that Moses says,

00:40:37--> 00:40:49

Eric, and Allah says Antoni, what I cannot do Rita Jabari for any staccato brahmachari hufa sofa dharani Salamat gel, Rob boo Lin jabel,

00:40:50--> 00:40:51

Allah azza wa jal

00:40:52--> 00:41:43

with that veil between him in the mountain and what happened, the job collapsed, it couldn't, it couldn't, this is what's going to happen when the veil is lifted up. No creation can withstand this, in this dunya. And that's what Allah says not to the record will absorb that eyes cannot encompass eyes cannot encompass Allah subhana wa Tada. So, in this Hadith, therefore, the process of is saying, in order to protect the creation from his magnificence, Allah has taken a veil, and the veil in our dunya is always the veil of darkness and cover. But in a la xojo case, the veil itself becomes created light, the veil is light, whereas for us the veil is always covering, and it's

00:41:43--> 00:42:18

always a darkness, you cover it up, right. But in the case of a love, you have the light as a virgin, the hijab itself becomes new. And so when without a said, Did you see your Lord, the response? There was light? How could I see him and that is the light of the new of the hijab of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this also clearly shows back to our talk last Wednesday that the Prophet system went to a place that no other being had gone, because he saw the hijab of Allah, he saw the hijab of Allah. So he said, there was light, how could I see him? Now if somebody were to ask?

00:42:21--> 00:43:02

How then will the creation see a lot in the next world, the response is, that next world is not the world, the physical bodies that we have now, it is a different world, that next world the resurrection will be a perfect resurrection. And it will be a resurrection of eternity. And it is not going to be of the type of flesh that we have. Now. It is going to be its own type of existence that only Allah knows about. And in that existence, and in only in that existence, we will be able to see a la jolla gelato. Otherwise, in this world, this seeing is completely implied. It's not even possible. No one has seen a law in this world of this creation. No one has seen a law nor could they

00:43:02--> 00:43:44

see a law and therefore, if an Ibis statement he saw him can be interpreted that either this was a mistake from his part. And an issue is more knowledgeable than him because she asked directly and without us directly, or it could be that. And there's one version that supports this even Ibis said he saw him with his heart or our who because be He, and this is a different type of role here. It's not the role of the eyes. So if if an Ibis affirm this, then there doesn't contradict the fact that nobody has seen a large soldier with with the eyes. Another question that was debated by some of the early scholars, and in our times it is being resurrected? Is the question of whether the Prophet

00:43:44--> 00:44:28

system went on Israel and marriage in his physical body, or was it a dream was a slightly larger dream? Or was it an actual journey? And the reason why some of the early scholars interpreted this way, is because some of the tablet room, some of the students of the Sahaba, they do have narrations in which they said Israeli Mirage was a dream. And they base this on certain narrations that said that the process of them said, I woke up, for example, and Mark I quoted this, I woke up in front of the cab. And so with this phrase, they said, What because you woke up this means it must have been a dream. But the people who narrated this are only one or two in number, and it is clear that they're

00:44:28--> 00:44:31

misinterpreting the whole incident based on one phrase.

00:44:32--> 00:45:00

The fact of the matter is throughout medieval Islam and throughout pre modern Islam, basically for the 1200 years in the middle, the Muslim Ummah has unanimously agreed that the Islamic marriage was in body and soul was in flesh and spirit was in a state of wakefulness and not in a dream. And the evidence is with us are too many to mention of them is had the Prophet system gone in a dream. What was their miraculous about him going to Jerusalem and back, we can go to

00:45:00--> 00:45:35

To The Moon and come back in our dreams, and nobody's gonna find this amazing. So if he had gone in a dream, why would he have found it a problem to tell the Porsche the next day of them is the fact that there's a physical ride buraq needing to take him to Jerusalem. For dreams, you don't need physical rights, you'll wake up tomorrow in your home country, no big deal, right of them is the fact that the process of got thirsty on the way back, he drank the water, right. And the fact that he's drinking water clearly shows he's in a state of wakefulness. So clearly, the prophet systems journey was in a state of wakefulness, body and soul, spirit and mind all of it together. Of course,

00:45:35--> 00:46:10

in our times, there have been a number of people, you know, the progressives and modernists, they tried to trivialize any miracle, they don't like any miracle, because it's not scientific enough for them. And so they interpret the parting of the sea and did everything that meant the Quran mentions as a miracle. They tried to reinterpret it because they find it embarrassing that we believe in miracles. And so there are some people and there are some modern books of Sierra as well, that try to state that the entire Eastern marriage occurred in a dream. And of course, it is nonsensical to say this, because the whole purpose of Israelite marriage then would be no point if it's a dream,

00:46:10--> 00:46:22

who cares? Why is it miraculous in a dream, you can go and do more than this, the whole miracle is that it was in body and soul. So we conclude now by talking about some of the benefits of Islamic marriage.

00:46:24--> 00:46:25

Some of the benefits of Islamic

00:46:26--> 00:46:54

realize that it's certain marriage is something that is narrated in the Quran. And in the mutawatir, authentics or nomoto. It means narrated by too many companions. It's not just one or two narrations. We have 4050 narrations about the assignment Raj, and therefore anybody who denies this thought in marriage is denying the Quran and the authentic son and that's not a no Muslim can do this. The explicit Koran tells us there was Islam and marriage.

00:46:55--> 00:47:18

The primary wisdom of Israel and marriage is to show the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his own status, and to console him after all of the hardships that he himself had undergone. And a smaller example that helps to illustrate this point. Remember, musala has Sam's first encounter with Eliza which is a tourist center.

00:47:19--> 00:47:53

And that's a minor example of what the astronomer dodges that Allah spoke with him. And Allah azza wa jal said to him, go back and tell Pharaoh This is your message, right? And Allah azza wa jal told Moosa that you have been given certain miracles, what are those miracles? Allah told him right then in there, throw your steps, do what happens, and put your hand into your pocket and take it out. See what's going to happen. Now, when Moosa did this, who is witnessing these miracles?

00:47:54--> 00:47:59

Who's witnessing it? No one except himself. Why are these miracles happening?

00:48:00--> 00:48:02

What's the psychological reason are these miracles?

00:48:05--> 00:48:09

of who have Mussa? Exactly

00:48:10--> 00:48:55

strengthening the faith of Moosa that I know this is true, right? Even the prophets of Allah can help with a boost I mean, does not Ibrahim say but I would like in the ultimate inaka doesn't Ibrahim himself say I know Ola, you can resurrect the dead but you know, I'd like to see it right. So that I feel content, even Ibrahim it his setup, he wants the ultimate in Nickleby. So Moosa, this is his ultimate in the hobby, and for our profit system, what is the ultimate in Nickleby? It is the greatest miracle of all, and that is, is wrong when marriage to show the prophets of Salaam that everything that you are preaching is true, that everything is real, that your Lord is communicating

00:48:55--> 00:49:40

with you that gender is real now is real, that the angels are like this, that you see Minaya to be healed, Cobra and that's exactly what Allah says the real human is in a cobra locker, I mean, either a bill Cobra. Another really interesting point here is that this entire miracle is a personal gift from Allah to the Prophet Mohammed sostenere. So personal gift. I mean, we don't benefit except that we believe that he went there. It's not a gift to the oma as much as it is a gift to him, directly from Allah to the Prophet sallallahu How do you sell them? Because you see, generally miracles are meant to prove to the unbelievers The truth of the Prophet right that's what a miracle is. But

00:49:40--> 00:50:00

sometimes Allah gifts a miracle for the sake of the Prophet himself, not to believe because he knows what actually ultimate in numbers be. And so this was a personal gift to the Prophet Mohammed Sal, Allahu Allah, he was sending them the likes of which no other prophet had ever ever had the likes of which no other prophet had

00:50:00--> 00:50:43

Ever been given. Yet another point here is that this miracle and this gift occurs at a time of great sadness. And it is completely unexpected, no indication that it's going to happen. And both of these points, make us understand why this is such a beautiful gift. Because when we're feeling down, right, I mean, even for us as regular mundane issues, when our friends surprise us with something when we're feeling down, doesn't that cheer us up so much more than if something has been planned for weeks in advance that we know what's going to happen? The Gift came completely unexpectedly out of the blue, at a time when the process of just lost his wife just lost his uncle had just been

00:50:43--> 00:51:25

rejected by the people of Thrive is the lowest of the low at the time. And Allah blesses him with the highest of the high and that is the direct journey to Islam, one marriage. And this clearly shows us that for a number and resolution in America so useful, that with every difficulty there will be ease, and the greater the difficulty, the greater the ease, and the greater the burden, the greater the gift at the end. This clearly shows us that no matter what Allah azza wa jal puts us through. If we remain firm and faithful, what we get back will be commensurate proportional, or more than what we have suffered. The processor had to suffer so much in order to be blessed with what he

00:51:25--> 00:51:29

was blessed with. Another blessing and point of benefit here

00:51:31--> 00:51:45

is that as even cathedra said, the famous Avianca theater Mufasa. If any person had seen even a fraction of these miracles, he would have woke up a madman

00:51:46--> 00:51:54

to imagine I mean, seeing these signs, he would have woke up and insane, but our Profit System came back and went back to sleep.

00:51:56--> 00:52:37

And this shows us the man that Allah Himself References mazagan abasolo Amato, the eyes did not blink, they didn't falter that he took in all of these miracles and he took it in stride Malzahar, bossa nova Moto, Nakamura, I mean it bill Cobra, the eyes did not falter, nor did they go beyond. And Allah is praising the courage of the process of praising the man that if anybody else had witnessed as 100 thieves as a fraction of this, you would have gone insane, woken up a madman. But our process then comes back to his bed, he goes to sleep, complete, calm, collect, and this shows us the courage and bravery of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:52:38--> 00:53:16

And this also is indicated in the Hadith of the process of as well. So I have Buhari that Lota and ammonium Arnhem, lava Hickton, Polina and waterbuck, a tomb cathedra, that if you knew what I knew, you would not be able to laugh that much, and you would cry a lot. If you knew what I knew you wouldn't be able to stand your enjoyment of life. That's what he's saying, in another Hadith, he said, you would have left your wives in their beds, you would have left them you couldn't even go and you would have gone out to the fields would have gone out to the desert, meaning you would go insane if you knew what I knew. But we don't know what he knows. And if we didn't know that we would

00:53:16--> 00:53:57

not be able to, we would not be able to keep that within us, we will not keep our sanity, but the process of them can keep his sanity. Yet another benefit that we gain here is that it shows the humanity of our processes. And we've said this over and over again, that we see the joys, the fears, the sorrows, the ups and the downs, we see that he wakes up and he is has seen, he is sad, because he knows his people are going to reject Him. And yet he still tells them, and that shows his bravery as well. Even if it's Abu Jamal, he'll still mention because Allah told them to say it. This also shows us the and of course, the benefit here, we don't distort the message of Islam. We don't it's

00:53:57--> 00:54:37

not our job, even if we're embarrassed about it. And this is a big problem that unfortunately, a lot of us fall into that we get embarrassed about what Islam says. And we want to sugarcoat it, we want to try to change it to appease the people. But that's not our job. It's not our job. Our job is to sell the product, not modify the product. And if people don't like it, it's not my fault. I didn't it's not my product that I can change it right. I am the salesman, I'm just teaching telling others about what my religion is, if they don't like it, I haven't. It's not my problem in my article below what is up. And so this we benefit from this that the Prophet system did not change or distort what

00:54:37--> 00:55:00

Allah told him to tell. He told yet another benefit, we gain here, the permissibility of using physical proofs to show the truthfulness of Islam, in that when they asked him about what Jerusalem was like he didn't say, just believe me, don't worry about that. Rather, he began answering them. He began answering them and when he wasn't able to answer he

00:55:00--> 00:55:38

Felt terrified. And Allah azza wa jal gave him the victory by basically picking up Jerusalem for his benefit, and showing it to him any direction he needed until he answered all of the questions. And this clearly shows us in our times, we may use physical evidence, whether it's miracles of the Quran, whether it's any other things of this nature to prove the truthfulness of our religion. Another benefit of Western Mirage is to link the messages of the two sons and the two great traditions of the Prophet Ibrahim, and that is, is married and is happy that clearly the masjid al haram represents Ibrahim in his mind, and the masculine oxa represents his health and his progeny.

00:55:39--> 00:56:19

And the linkage is very clear. And the precedence is given to Makkah, because the journey begins in Mecca, and it ends in Makkah, but there's a direct linkage to beta democritus, that the two are not separate from one another, they are the same message. And this clearly shows us the blessings in the leader of the masjid al Haram, and the messed up saw. And this is proven, especially by the first page of suited Israel. In fact, the first two pages, all of it is a blessing of beta blockers, and what happened with the hood and what is going to happen to the yahood. And, of course, this links into the fact that the beta mock This is something that will occupy center stage for many, many

00:56:20--> 00:56:54

incidents and things to occur. And this incident is starting Mirage, the story of saluted Israel, the first page of Israel. And that's a whole different issue. By the way, what does the first page say? And what are the two incidents of the first pages with Israel, that's beyond the scope of this class. But as I said, some of the scholars have their interpretations that make this interpret that make this reference a modern reference rather than a reference of the past. And we know for a fact that the Bates would mock this will be the sign the sight of the final battle as well between good and evil between the job and mercy.

00:56:55--> 00:57:39

Mercy it will be in the vicinity of beta mock of this. So this will remain something that is center stage till the end of times, and it was of importance in the life of the Prophet system, and shall remain important as well. And that is why when kebab conquered baitul muck this when he conquered Jerusalem, so panela, as we said, the actual Temple of Solomon had been desecrated by the Christians because the Christians were very anti semitic. Generally, they really did not like the Jews, because they viewed the Jews as being people who rejected Jesus Christ as being the rejecters of Jesus Christ. And, and they felt them as basically try having tried to kill their Lord and God, right. So

00:57:40--> 00:58:25

they had made, they will mark this into a trash dump. They had made beta mock this into the junkyard of the city, the actual Temple of Solomon, Temple of subsidy man. And whenever Bob concreted, he ordered that all of this junk and trash be cleansed. And he built the masjid that we are now familiar with, and that on that location, he built that Masjid to purify because he knew the status of beta blockers. Even if the Christians did not at the time, he knew the status of beta blockers, and therefore he purified it. And he was the one who restored the honor to be to mock this not because it's a you who decide because it is an Islamic site. It is a site of a large xojo having

00:58:25--> 00:58:38

praised it in the Koran. And so there is a clear connection between Jerusalem and between Makkah and there is a clear connection between the tradition of is happily Islam in the tradition of his main idea his Sam,

00:58:40--> 00:59:21

there's also a sign and some colleges have derived this as well, that the Tabler will be changed as well that the Prophet system eventually he he starts from Mecca, he goes to beta blockers he prays there but then he comes back and he prays basically fragile in the cab. So there is going to be this shifting or this change from beta lock this to the Gabba and this was to happen literally a year later, or maxima depending on when we say but it's occurred maximum a year and a half to two years later, the change in direction came that beta lock this is direction is shifted to the cabin. In the existence of Al buraq and the Mirage and all of these creations we clearly find that there are

00:59:21--> 00:59:43

worlds beyond our world and there are creations beyond our creation. man should never think that he is the only creation of Allah subhana wa Tada. Rather, there are many other creations, many other species, many other existences that only Allah is aware of. And Allah says this in the Quran, Allah komagata Allah moon that Allah has created, what you do not know

00:59:45--> 00:59:47

also in the existence of buraq

00:59:48--> 00:59:59

and in many other instances as well. We clearly find that Allah azza wa jal has linked efforts with causes or clarify

01:00:00--> 01:00:06

I'm saying, nothing comes for free, there must be an effort before you get your goal.

01:00:07--> 01:00:46

In other words, you don't just sit at home and talk it out alone, you think things are gonna happen. Rather, there's always an effort you need to put in to get to the goal. And even if Allah is blessing you with a miracle, there must be an effort from your part to get the miracle. So buraq has to be mounted and settled. And that's what the process of them did, to ride the boat off to get to be to lock this and then to tie Brock at the post that block is tight upon, right. And this has shown throughout the Quran, Mario Allah has set up Allah is gonna bless her with fruits falling from the heavens, but those fruits, they're coming from the tree. How is Modi? I'm gonna get it. For her

01:00:46--> 01:01:19

who's z laiki budget. It doesn't just fall, you need to put in some effort. You need to do something, even if it's small, but Allah azza wa jal has linked your goal with some effort you put in for it, right? And if this is for a miracle, how about the daily occurrences that are not miraculous? Allah azza wa jal never gives anything like that you need to show your dedication, you need to put in the effort to strive to get it, you want money, you're going to have to work for it. And Allah will give it to you, you want to be cured, you're going to have to go to the doctor and get the medicine. But Allah will give you the cure whatever you want, Allah has created the paths to

01:01:19--> 01:02:01

get there. Even the miracles that don't have general paths, Allah still said, you need to do something to part the Red Sea. Allah didn't just say to Musa stand there, and it's going to happen. Allah said to him was a throwing hitter staff need to do something to get that that fancy party, right. All of this clearly shows that allows the agenda has created the causes, and the efforts to get to the goals that you want, the goal isn't just going to come to you from the heavens, even if it is a miracle, there must be an effort to that that is put in to get that miracle. And the story of the milk and the wine, we clearly see the purity of the Profit System soul in that even before

01:02:01--> 01:02:48

wine has been made haraam he knows that he doesn't want wine. And he chooses the pure over the corrupt. And jabril says, you have chosen the pure had you chosen the wine, your oma would have gone astray. And you chose the pure and that is honey. And we talked about the difference between wine and honey wine, between wine and milk, milk comes out pure directly from the animal and we drink it, whereas wine has to be fermented has to become corrupt. Whatever it is, you have to basically, you know, ferment it and allow the bacteria to go and corrupt the taste. Milk serves as food and drink. And it nourishes like nothing else on Earth. Wine does not nourish at all it corrupts the mind. Wine

01:02:48--> 01:03:03

does not nourishing it is corrupting of the mind. And so the difference between milk and between wine is the difference between Islam and all other and all other ways. And the process of chose Islam, which is pure, and all other ways are corrupted, and evil.

01:03:05--> 01:03:08

In another interesting point,

01:03:09--> 01:03:13

in one version, and I didn't mention this at the time, and it was my mistake, I should have mentioned about that.

01:03:15--> 01:03:18

When the Prophet system went up, and he saw Adam alayhis, salam,

01:03:19--> 01:04:00

he actually saw Adam surrounded by many, many people beyond what he could count. And on the right side of Adam was one group on the left side, another group. And when he saw Adam and Islam saw the people on his right, he was happy. And when he saw the people on the left, he began to cry. So he asked gibreel, about this, and jabril said, these are all of the children of Adam, they have William Ian are the people of gender, this habit chemin are the people of jahannam. So when he looks at the people of gender, he is happy. And when he looks at the people of gender, he is saddened. So this is a benefit. And we derived from it yet another benefit. And that is that if you think about it, in

01:04:00--> 01:04:42

this journey of Islamic world Mirage, the prophet system, physically saw all of the pillars of a man, all of them, or at least indications of them, he saw the hijab of Allah and he spoke directly with Allah, He saw numerous angels, and he saw the angel jabril in the original form, he met all of the prophets, and he spoke to them. And this is the prophets in the books, right. And he spoke to them about the Day of Judgment. And he spoke to them about the signs of the Day of Judgment. And he saw heaven and hell which are going to take place after the Day of Judgment. And he even saw the reality of other how, by seeing Adam with the right and the left and by one more thing, the pen, the

01:04:42--> 01:05:00

writing of the pen, hearing the pen, so he physically saw the reality of others as well. So if you think about it, the man of the Prophet system after literally seeing with his own eyes, all of these pillars of a man, you understand that this was a personal gift to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to encourage

01:05:00--> 01:05:38

He's his own man. of the benefits we gain is the Brotherhood of all the profits that all of them, there's no hatred, there's no animosity, they're all loving towards one another, and they acknowledge the differences of their statuses. When the process of them lead them in prayer. They all accept this because Allah has decreed it. And if this is the case with the prophets, then who are we to deny the decree of Allah if some people are richer than us, others have higher positions than us. We should accept the decree of Allah. The prophets have no problems accepting these decrees as well. Even in Moosa crying, why did he cry, not out of anger or jealousy of the Prophet, but out

01:05:38--> 01:06:14

of mercy and love for his own oma? Because you wanted his own oma to be the largest oma, so he has a feeling of wanting good for his own. There's nothing negative against the process of him. It's positive for himself, that I wanted to have the best oma and that's basically natural that I want to have the best good deeds, right, I want to have the best. So the competition with other people should be in his Senate, and not in the worldly things. And we see this in Moosa and the Prophet system that he felt a positive jealousy, not a negative jealousy that I wish I had the largest oma and and Allah has revealed that he has the largest oma

01:06:15--> 01:06:55

of the benefits that we see, clearly. And we mentioned this before the status of the Prophet system as being someone who clearly is the most chosen of the entire creation, to say you the word the Adam, the one who leads the prophets, the one who goes up beyond to the into the one who sees the veil of Allah, and here's the pen writing on this tablet, no other person has been there. And this is clearly over the blessings that Allah azza wa jal has given to our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of the blessings we get from Israel and Mirage, is the status of salah and I talked about this last Wednesday as well, that no other commandment has been shown in this manner. So that

01:06:55--> 01:07:14

is the crux of our religion. And it is enough of an indication to show us how we got the slaughter of the blessings of Islam. Our marriage is the superiority of our oma over the arm of masa. Because Moosa said my oma would not be able to pray five times a day.

01:07:15--> 01:07:55

And yet, this oma has taken it on. And by and large, even if it's not 100%, we have a healthy percentage of the oma that is praying five times a day and the righteous followers of the process are all praying five times a day, even though Omar said, I have experienced sorry Moosa said, I have experienced you don't have and my oma could not have done that. But Allah azza wa jal knew that we could. And so he gave us the five solar watts, and we are fulfilling the five. So the what? There are many, there are many theological benefits as well, briefly, we'll just go over them. just list them. The fact that Allah is above us, the very fact that the process of them went up shows that a

01:07:55--> 01:08:35

lot is above us. And this is a clear refutation of those extreme groups who believe it was everywhere, which is really a strange belief. If you think about it, and Allah is not everywhere, we're not walking through Allah, Allah azza wa jal is above us, the Mirage clearly shows that of the benefits of a storm Mirage is that heaven and hell exist right now as we speak, Heaven and Hell exist right now have the benefits of Islamic or theological the benefits is that the fitrah is the purity represented by milk. And the religion of Islam is that purity? Islam fits in with our being and creation, and it does not corrupt us. And there are other theological benefits as well. Believe

01:08:35--> 01:08:51

it or not, there are even some filk benefits, I will this will conclude some physical benefits of Israel and Mirage, we learned some legal rulings. First and foremost of the legal rulings we learn is that we need to ask permission before entering doors. Where do we get this from?

01:08:53--> 01:08:56

Djibouti, knocking and asking permission

01:08:58--> 01:08:59


01:09:00--> 01:09:47

learn as well, that when somebody says, Who is there, we respond with our names, because you believe said, this is Djibouti. And not it's me. Because even our Prophet system said, Don't say it's me. Right? We respond with our names. And this is a fifth benefit. We even learned from Israel marriage because God says this is jabril right? I am gibreel here and so he mentioned himself by name of them is that the one who is walking should start the system with the one who is sitting and standing, even if he is more noble than him, because the prophets were which were waiting for the Prophet Mohammed salsa them, and they're the ones who said their cell lamps. And in the case of Malik as

01:09:47--> 01:10:00

well, when the process of them turned around Moloch was the one who began the salon before the Prophet system could say the salams of the blessings here, it is allowed to incarnate

01:10:00--> 01:10:41

To give glad tidings and good news to those who are worthy of receiving it, because the prophets gave glad tidings to the Prophet system. And they're telling him news about your meltem about the science of the Day of Judgment of the fifth blessings here is that it is permissible to give an encourage to give advice that will bring about good for the people, in other words, a dino naziha. Because Moosa is giving advice even though the process of didn't ask for it, who says giving advice, even though the process did not ask for it? And this shows us that when there's a opportunity to help somebody, you should try to help them out. And it's a part of our religion, I do not see how we

01:10:41--> 01:10:51

already know that of the physical blessings we get is that it is completely permissible to sit with your back facing the Qibla. Where do we get this from?

01:10:53--> 01:11:17

Abraham alayhis salam was sitting with his back actually on Bates in Malmo, right. And some of our cultures in particular my culture, consider this to be impermissible. But this clearly shows us that it is permissible to do so. And of the final blessing we mentioned, these are physical blessings. And this is clearly proven in the Hadith, that night traveling is actually preferred to date traveling.

01:11:18--> 01:11:57

And the Prophet system himself said that when you are traveling, then travel at night because Allah subhana wa tada makes the distance easier to go by. Right. And so it's the law, right is better than doing it during the day, Islamic night travel. And this is something we can derive Incidentally, not directly. But there are authentic hadith about this as well, that the Prophet says I've encouraged night travel rather than day travel. And of course, this is nothing wrong with day travel. But he's saying if you can choose between the two, the night travel is better. And obviously in those days in the sun and whatnot, it was easier to do it when the sun had gone down. Of course, natural means the

01:11:57--> 01:12:34

only Aftermath live you go to as long as you can go, this is what Israel would mean. These are some of the benefits that we get from Israel and Mirage inshallah, next Wednesday, we will start the next chapter of our series, and that is laying the foundations for Medina and what the prophet system was doing during this time to think about immigrating to the city of Medina. That will be inshallah, next, next Wednesday. Unfortunately, we really don't have time for q&a. I really went a bit late, so inshallah we'll try to take them in the next Wednesday. Are there any announcements, you know, no announcements to show so we will stop over here is akmola wholesaler and of course Dr. doctrina Diem

01:12:35--> 01:12:43

Mashallah took us to the challenge and the and he did indeed bring haldwani time Mashallah, right? So at hamdulillah Mashallah takbeer

01:12:44--> 01:12:47

but after Salah, after Sunnah

01:12:52--> 01:13:02

please pray that we expand when we eat it. No, no, no, we don't want to expand. inshallah, we pray that the Baraka descends on the sweets inshallah, so let's praise Allah and then
