A Miraculous Journey above Seven Skies
A great number of miracles were bestowed upon the Greatest and Holiest Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم by Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ One of the greatest miracles of the Noblest Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّمis the miracle of Mi’raaj (event of Mi’raaj i.e., Ascension of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم to the Heavens and beyond). The Most Revered and Renowned Prophetصَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّمwas made to ascend Heaven where heصَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم observed many Divine rewards.
The Prophet of Rahmah, the Intercessor of the Ummah, the Owner of Jannah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated: I entered Jannah (on the night of Ascension), I saw stones which were made of pearls and soil of Musk ; thereafter I saw four rivers, the first river was of water which does not change; the second was of milk, the taste of which does not change; third, was the river of pure wine which is delicious (non-intoxicating) to those who drink it and the fourth one was the river of clear and pure honey. The pomegranates of Jannah were like large leather buckets in size and the birds were as camels [in size]. Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has prepared such marvellous and wonderful favours for his pious bondsmen which have never been witnessed by any eye nor did anybody hear about it ever and nor did anyone have an idea about it.
(Dalail-un-Nubuwwah lil-Bayhaqi, vol. 2, pp. 394)
وہ بُرجِ بَطحَا کا ماہ پَارہ بِہِشت کی سَیر کو سِدَھارا
چمک پہ تھا خُلد کا سِتارہ کہ اس قمر کے قدم گئے تھے
Interpretation of the couplet: When the Beloved Prophet Muhammad صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم ascended to Jannah in the blessed night of Ascension, the fortune of Jannah smiled upon Jannah itself and it was privileged to kiss the blessed feet of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم.
سُرُورِ مَقدَم کی روشنی تھی کہ تَابِشوں سے مَہِ عَرَب کی
جِنَاں کے گُلشن تھے جھاڑ فَرشی جو پُھول تھے سب کنول بنے تھے
Interpretation of the couplet: When the Noble Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم arrived in Jannah, it became brightened & illuminated from all around, all this illumination & radiance was emanating from the most eminent and highly exalted Personality of the Blessed & Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم that during these blessed moments, the flowers of Jannah were also in full blossom.
During the Mi’raaj (Ascension) to Jannah, the Noblest Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم approached a river, its banks had tents made of hollow pearls and its soil was pure Musk. I asked Jibraeel (عَـلَيْـهِ الـصَّلٰوة ُ وَالـسَّلَام), ‘What is this O Jibraeel?’ He humbly said, ‘This is Kausar, which Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ .has bestowed you’
(Sahih Bukhari, pp. 1612, Hadis 6581)
آسمانوں پر گئے اور خُلد کی بھی سَیر کی
شاہ کا یہ مرتبہ، اہلًا وّ سہلًا مرحبا
On the blessed night of Mi’raaj, the Prophet of creation, the Peace of our heart and mind, the most Generous and Kind صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم saw a person with his hair combed, sitting on a chair beside the doors of Jannah, sitting by him there were some people with bright faces and some with darkened faces. Those with darkened faces took a bath in a river and came out clean. They then entered another river and took a bath and came out even more purified. Upon entering a third river and bathing, they were purified so much that their colour turned bright like their companions. They then sat next to those companions with bright faces.
The Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم asked, ‘O Jibraeel! Who are these people?’ He humbly said, ‘O Beloved Prophet of Allah (صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم)! This man (on the chair) is your father Sayyiduna Ibrahim عَـلَيْـهِ الـصَّلٰوة ُ وَالـسَّلَام; he is the first person on earth who combed his hair. These radiant people have never mixed their Imaan with any evil & wickedness, and those who have a touch of darkness are people who mixed their good deeds with some bad ones, but they repented, and Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has accepted their repentance. The first river in which they took a bath in, is a blessing of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, the second one is a favour of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and the third one is what Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ made them to drink, ‘Tahoor’ wine.’
(Dalail-un-Nubuwwah, vol. 2, pp. 401)
During the blessed night of Mi’raaj, the Noblest Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم passed by a valley from which a fresh and pleasant breeze was blowing with the fragrance of Musk. The Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم heard a voice there and asked Sayyiduna Jibraeelعَـلَيْـهِ الـصَّلٰوة ُ وَالـسَّلَام as to what this pleasant breeze with the fragrance of musk and voice were. Jibraeel عَـلَيْـهِ الـصَّلٰوة ُ وَالـسَّلَام replied: It is the voice of Heaven, saying, ‘O Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! Grant the dwellers of Jannah entry into me and those for whom You promised me and no doubt, I have pleasant fragrances, silk, brocade, pearls, corals, gold, silver, perfect things, honey, milk and wine etc. in abundance. So grant them entry into me as You had promised me.’ Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ says, ‘In you, I will grant refuge to every Muslim man and woman who believe in Me and My Prophets, they perform good deeds, do not associate partners with Me and fear Me. I will bestow upon those who ask Me; I will give recompense to those who lend to Me; I fulfil the needs of those who have trust in Me; I am Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ); none is worthy of worship except Me; I do not go against My promise.’ Listening to this, Heaven said, ‘I am pleased now.’
(Dalail-un-Nubuwwah, vol. 2, pp. 399)
It is narrated that on the blessed night of Mi’raaj, the Greatest and Holiest Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم saw some incredibly towering palaces and upon inquiring about them, Sayyiduna Jibraeel عَـلَيْـهِ الـصَّلٰوة ُ وَالـسَّلَام humbly said: These are for those who control their anger, tolerate and forgive others and Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ likes those who do good.
(Musnad-ul-Firdaus, vol. 2, pp. 255, Hadis 3188)
Anger is normally an involuntary reaction. It is an incitement of the Nafs (self) which provokes one to take revenge. Blessed Ahadees carry great virtues for the one who controls his anger, seeking forgiveness & tolerance in such situations. One of these virtues have already been mentioned. Two blessed sayings of the Beloved and Blessed Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم:
1. If anyone suppresses his anger when he is in a position to give vent to it, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, will call him on the Day of Resurrection before all creatures, and give him authority to choose any of the Heavenly maidens he wishes.
(Sunan Abi Dawood, Kitab-ul-Adab, pp. 752, Hadis 4777)
2. The best people amongst my Ummah are those who control their anger when they are in a fit of rage.
(Al-Mu’jam-ul-Awsat lit-Tabarani, vol. 4, pp. 224, Hadis 5793)
حُسنِ اَخلاق اور نَرمی دو دُور ہو خُوئے اِشتعال آقا
If life comes to an end, then?
You have heard the observations of Heaven which were witnessed and observed by the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم on the night of Ascension. When the Noble Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم approached the gate of Jannah, ‘Rizwaan’, the gate keeper of Jannah welcomed and greeted the Revered and Renowned Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. He صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم saw Heavenly rivers, gardens and exotic birds, the fountain of Kausar, had banks with tents made of pearls and soil of Musk. The Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم saw incredibly towering palaces about which Sayyiduna Jibraeel عَـلَيْـهِ الـصَّلٰوة ُ وَالـسَّلَام explained that these are for those who control their anger and forgive others; furthermore, he saw tents similar to domes about which it was told that those were for the Imams and Mu`azzins of your Ummah. The Noble Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم also saw a beautiful palace decorated with pure silk curtains for Sayyiduna Siddeeq-e-Akbar رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ and on the Ascension of Jannah, he صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم heard the footsteps of Sayyiduana Bilaal رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ, Jannah is such a beautiful abode where true believers will live there for eternity. It contains great blessings which have never been witnessed by any eye, nor listened by anyone’s ear and nor has anyone imagined it. The Inheritors of Heaven will be those fortunate people who humbly pray in Salah and they do not incline towards indecent matters & immoral talks, they pay obligatory charity, guard their private organs, regard their trusts and their covenant and guard their Salah. May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ also make us these virtuous qualities and grant us success in the world and Hereafter.

May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ make us as He عَزَّوَجَلَّ and His Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيۡهِ وَاٰلِه وَسَلَّم like and keeps away us from bad deeds (Ameen)
