During the Mi’raaj, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) met Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) and Nabi Yahya (‘alaihis salaam) in the second heaven.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned in the mubaarak Hadith:

أنا أقرب الناس بعيسى بن مريم ليس بيني وبينه نبي

“(From all the Ambiyaa,) I am closest to ‘Isa bin Maryam. There is no Nabi between him and me.”

The Miracle of Stalling the Sun

Written by

After returning from the Mi’raaj, when the Quraish had asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to inform them of something that he had seen on the road while returning from Bayt-ul-Muqaddas, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had informed them of the trade caravan that he had seen returning from Syria and had mentioned that it would reach Makkah by Wednesday evening before sunset.

However, by Wednesday evening, the caravan did not appear and the sun was about to set. At that time, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) made dua to Allah Ta‘ala. Allah Ta‘ala then delayed the setting of the sun for a little while until the caravan entered Makkah the same evening before sunset, in accordance with Rasulullah’s (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) prophesy.

In the same order, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned from the heavens and landed first at Bayt-ul-Muqaddas. From here, he mounted the Buraaq and reached Makkah Mukarramah before the break of dawn.

The same morning, he recounted this incident to the Quraish. On hearing the incident, they were left shocked. Some of them held their hands over their heads in astonishment whilst others scornfully started clapping their hands. In surprise, they began to exclaim, “How could it be possible for him to go to Bayt-ul-Muqaddas and return in just a single night!”

The Gift of the Five Daily Salaah

Written by

On the occasion of mi’raaj, when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) met Allah Ta‘ala, then Allah Ta‘ala bestowed him with many special bounties, bestowed glad tidings to him that made him pleased and happy, and gave him various commands and injunctions. From all these injunctions and commands, the most important command was for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and his ummah to perform fifty salaah daily.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) accepted these injunctions and commands with great happiness, and thereafter, as he returned, he first met Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam). On meeting Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam), Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) did not mention anything regarding the commands and the fifty salaah which Allah Ta‘ala had prescribed.

According to a lengthy narration reported by Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Allah Ta‘ala addressed Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the following words while conversing with him:

قد اتخذتك خليلا وحبيبا وأرسلتك إلى الناس كافة بشيرا ونذيرا وشرحت لك صدرك ووضعت عنك وزرك ورفعت لك ذكرك فلا أذكر إلاذكرت معي وجعلت أمتك خير أمة أخرجت للناس وجعلت أمتك وسطا وجعلت أمتك هم الأولين والآخرين وجعلت من أمتك أقواما قلوبهم أناجيلهم وجعلتك أول النبيين خلقا وآخرهم بعثا وأعطيتك سبعا من المثاني لم أعطها نبيا قبلك وأعطيتك خواتيم سورة البقرة من كنز تحت العرش لم أعطها نبيا قبلك وأعطيتك الكوثر وأعطيتك ثمانية أسهم الإسلام والهجرة والجهاد والصلاة والصدقة وصوم رمضان والأمر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر وجعلتك فاتحا وخاتما

I have taken you as my close friend and My beloved. I have sent you to all of mankind as a bearer of glad tidings and as a warner. I have expanded for you your chest (so that you can manage the weight of the wahi revealed to you), and removed from you your burden (i.e. Allah Ta‘ala assisted you in bearing the responsibility of conveying deen to the ummah). I have exalted for you your esteem (i.e. your name and position), so whenever My name will be taken, your name will also be taken with My name. I have made your ummah the best of ummats taken out for the benefit of mankind, and I have made your ummah a moderate ummah. I have made your ummah the first (to enter Jannah) and the last (to come in this world). I have made from your ummah such people whose hearts are their Injeels (Bibles i.e. their hearts will contain the divine kitaab of Allah Ta‘ala – the Qur’aan Majeed). I have made you the first of the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam) to be created, and the last of them to come to the world. I have bestowed you with Surah Faatihah, which I have not bestowed to any Nabi before you, and I have bestowed you with the concluding verses of Surah Baqarah, which are from a treasure beneath the throne and which I did not bestow to any Nabi before you. I blessed you with the Howdh-e-Kawthar, and I blessed you (and your ummah) with eight special favors; Islam (i.e. the title of being Muslims), hijrah, jihaad, salaah, sadaqah, the fast of Ramadhaan, amr bil ma’roof (enjoining with good) and nahy anil munkar (forbidding from evil). I have made you the one who opens (the one who will open and commence the reckoning on the Day of Qiyaamah through his intercession) and the seal (of all the Ambiyaa [‘alaihimus salaam]).

(Extracted from Seeratul Mustafa 1/308-309)

The Three Gifts of Allah Ta‘ala

Written by

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) met Allah Ta‘ala, then on this great occasion, Allah Ta‘ala conversed with him directly and bestowed three gifts upon him. The first gift was the five daily salaah.

The second gift was the concluding verses of Surah Baqarah which include mention of the complete mercy, kindness and compassion of Allah Ta‘ala upon this ummah, together with the ease, concession, overlooking faults and forgiveness with which Allah Ta‘ala has favored this ummah, and the assistance and victory against the disbelievers that the ummah will receive from Allah Ta‘ala.

Meeting Allah Ta‘ala

Written by

From the Sidratul Muntaha, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) ascended even further until he reached such a high place where he was able to hear the sounds made by the pens (recording predestination). The sound produced by the writing of these pens of predestination is referred to as Sareeful-Aqlaam.  

This is the location where the pens of taqdeer were engaged in recording everything that will transpire in the future. The angels were busy writing the divine decisions and religious commandments from the Lowh-e-Mahfooz.

From the place of Sareef-ul-Aqlaam, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) proceeded and passed through many veils until he arrived in the sacred presence of Allah Ta‘ala.

Seeing Jannah and Jahannum

Written by

Jannah is located close to the Sidrat-ul-Muntaha. In the Qur’aan Majeed, Allah Ta‘ala says:

عِنۡدَ سِدۡرَۃِ الۡمُنۡتَہٰی ﴿۱۴﴾ عِنۡدَہَا جَنَّۃُ الۡمَاۡوٰی ﴿ؕ۱۵﴾

At Sidrat-ul-Muntaha, near it is Jannat-ul-Ma’waa (the abode of Jannah). (Surah Najm v. 14-15)

It is reported in the narration of Hazrat Abu Sa’eed Khudri (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that after performing salaah in Bayt-ul-Ma’moor, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was raised to the Sidrat-ul-Muntaha. Thereafter, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was raised to Jannah, and after his visit to Jannah, Jahannum was presented before him. In other words, the horrors of Jahannum were laid bare before him.

Sidrat-ul-Muntaha

Written by

After meeting Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) in the seventh heaven and seeing the Bayt-ul-Ma’moor, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was raised to the Sidrat-ul-Muntaha.

The Sidrat-ul-Muntaha is a large tree in the seventh heaven. When anything is raised from the earth to the heavens, it first stops at the Sidrat-ul-Muntaha, and thereafter it continues to rise into the heavens. Likewise, when anything is sent down from the angels in Mala'ul A'laa (the angles in the high assembly), it first stops at the Sidrat-ul-Muntaha, and thereafter it continues to descend. It is for this reason that this tree is called the Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (the lote tree of the end point).

Arriving at the Bayt-ul-Ma’moor

Written by

After meeting Nabi Yahya (‘alaihis salaam) and Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam) in the second heaven, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) continued to the third heaven. On coming to the third heaven, Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) sought permission to enter, as he had done at the first and second heavens.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) met Nabi Yusuf (‘alaihis salaam) in the third heaven and spoke to him, as he had spoken to the Ambiyaa in the other heavens. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) also mentioned, “Nabi Yusuf (‘alaihis salaam) was bestowed with a great portion of handsomeness and beauty.”
