Sohbah of Hajjah Ruqqaiyah Sultan
Dated 22 May 2020 / 29 Ramadan 1441
Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam after Hazrat e Khadija and Abu Talib was passed away this year it was called the year Salat al Huzn, A’mal Huzn, the sad, the sad year, sadness, the year of sadness and He was going to Taif and coming back his uncle Abbas than he was protecting him and he was not muslim but that time he was not muslim, after I think after Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam make Hijra he become muslim . His uncle Abbas was protecting him and Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was you know his some of his relatives are, were muslim. And one night He was, the 27th night of Rajab I think he was in his place or in his aunty’s place He was sleeping there and Hazrat e Jibreel was coming and telling him that you are invited to the divine presence. Allah Azza wa Jalla was ordering the Heavens, the Paradise and all the Angels to be ready. It is the night that I welcome my Beloved. So it was the Heavens, Paradise and the Angels are all very ready for Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam. Jibreel Alaihisalam was ordered to go and take Burraq from the Paradise, from Heavens and all the…..Burraq it is the animal like a horse but it is Heavenly Animal that ride, they can ride to Paradise on it and it has may be I think face like a human but body is like a horse and it is a beautiful animal, Allah knows how it looks like but not looking like the animals are here in the world.
So it was ordered that for all the Burraqs in the Paradise to be ready, one of them will be chosen to take to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, to bring Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam from the earth and they all were so ready, the Burraqs, only this one was small size, little bit small size, this Burraq was little bit sad. He said, I love Sayyidina Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, I heard about him and you know I look little bit small and I am not as nice as the other ones…. or you know as, that they can’t choose me I am small one and nobody will look at my face and there was all the coming to Jibreel Alaihisalam choose this one because he was humble and not thinking that it will be him and then Jibreel Alaihisalam took him and they went to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, it was after midnight and He woke up Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam and he take wudhu and said please ride on this and than Burraq was this animal was little bit afraid than Hazrat-e-Jibreel was telling him that you were asking for him and now you are making this funny movement you don’t want to put him on your back then he was saying sorry and asking forgiveness and say, “Ašhadu an lā ilāha illā-llāh wa ašhadu anna Muhammadan rasoolullah”, “Ya Rasoolullah! please ride on me” and they go the Burraq is where your eye is reached, where you are looking further where the horizon, your eye is reach the step of this Burraq is there. So first Isra’a from Makkah to Qudus Sharif to Bait Al Maqdis….they go there and Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was meeting with all the spirits of all the Prophets there and He was praying making Imam and praying with them 2 rakah with all the Prophets there and after that He was….He tie the Burraq, they tie it there and they were stepping on big rock and it was the rock was getting up with him than Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam stop and said the rock stop it stopped, if it didn’t tell for the rock stop it the rock will be up till the Sidratul Muntaha, now there is mosque around it they build mosque and you can go under it, 2 rakah you can pray there and Alhamdulillah we visited last September this places and it was a…..Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam the steps from noor from light he is stepping on step and it getting high to the other step than he is going to the other step like stairs but each stair a different light also and he is stepping on it and reaching to the other step until it is first sky, He saw there Hazrat e Adam first sky.
Hazrat-e-Adam coming and hugging him and He said my place is here and He was sitting and He was right side looking laughing and left side crying than Hazrat e Jibreel, Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wasallam asked, ‘why he is doing this? He said, ‘He is looking for his good mu’min pious children, He is happy with them and then He looks his sinner children, He is sad for them that’s why and before….Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam then it came to him….one plate there with one plate with three glasses one water, one wine, one milk and said this is offer from Allah Azza wa Jalla, you take what you like than Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam took the milk, He drank all and left little bit down, left little bit not finishing may be one finger in the glass milk was left and than Jibreel Alaihisalam was telling him you are save your Ummah. Your Nation is save because if you took water it will be drown your Ummah will be drowned, if you took wine your Ummah will be lost also because milk it is the best you choose but only little bit of your Ummah will be in hell or not on this way because you left little bit of milk in the glass Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was trying to drink the rest. He said no finish then second…..sky I think there is Hazrat e Isa second or fourth I think second, I think he was four than he get in to second so and on the fourth Hazrat e Idris and the third I don’t know I cannot remember but Hazrat e Musa I think was in the fifth anyway, I not so good memory.
On the seventh there is Hazrat-e-Ibrahim, they all welcomed Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam and on the seventh this is the highest place. Hazrat-e-Ibrahim with so many little-little children, He is sitting with them. He said this is your nations children that I teach them Qur’an until the judgment day I teach them Quran and this all the children who died early I teach them Qur’an this my job. Then, Hazrat e Jibreel was standing in his place under Sidratul Muntaha, it is the last place before Arsh. He was stopping there standing and said to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, ‘you know you please go forward’, then Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was telling, ‘you come with me’, He said, ‘No, I cannot this is my place, if I go further one step further from here I will be vanished and will not be existed again, it will, my being will be vanished it will not be existed, created again this place is only for you Ya Rasoolallah’. Because you know Jibreel Alaihisalam was friend of Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, He was coming to him 24 thousand time in the 23 years 24 thousand times he came to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam that means that nearly daily it is 3-4 times daily it was you know because…..the most also who had Jibreel coming to him it was Hazrat e Musa it was 4 hundred plus something like this was counted Hazrat e Jibreel with Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam always.
So, Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was going forward and than he was trying to take his shoes out his out. Nalain Sharif , He was trying to take them out and it was from Allah coming ‘Nida’, divine call from Allah Azza wa Jalla, ‘don’t take your shoes off let my Throne to be honoured with your shoes dust”. Because in Qur’an when Musa Alaihisalam was going to the Holy valley and He was stepping in and there was call coming take your shoes off, but Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, Allah Azza wa Jalla was telling let my throne to be honoured with your shoes dust. It is between Allah Azza wa Jalla and Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam what was there, what happened there, with our little mind we don’t know so many people says no it is not like this, not like that, not it was not with body it was with soul, I don’t know what, it was dream, we believe that it was true and it was with body and soul together nothing is too much for Allah Azza wa Jalla. If He ask , He will it will be nothing can use our small mind it is like this, it is like that it is Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi was telling like this, ‘Amanna wa Sadaqna’. You believed for it you liked it…..it was first Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, ‘At-tahiyyatu lillahi wa-salawatu wa’t-tayyibatu lillahi ta’ ala, this we read when we are sitting for the prayer. First he was greeting Allah Azza wa Jalla, then Allah Azza wa Jalla was answering, ‘As-salamu ‘alayka ayyuha’n-Nabiyyu wa rahmat-Allahi wa barakatuhu’. Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam answering back, ‘As-salamu ‘alayna wa ‘alaa ‘ibad-Illah is-saliheen’. Then all the angels, all the sky, all the heavens people’s in one voice they say, “ “Ašhadu an lā ilāha illā-llāh wa ašhadu anna Muhammadan abduhu wa rasooluhu” so it was for us to read it, it was presented, gifted for the Ummah to read it in their every prayers and there was two ayah’s of Aamanar Rasoolu until the # Fānşurnā ‘Alá Al- Qawmi Al- Kāfirīna’, it was also there it was gifted to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam and the orders of prayer of Salah was given there as 50 time a day and then Allah the meeting was finished and coming down Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, He met Hazrat e Musa, Hazrat e Musa was telling him what news, He said this-this and He said 50 times prayer salah daily. Hazrat e Musa said it is too much my nation was ordered this and now they lost, every you know it was too much for them and too heavy and it was they lost, they lost their way. Please ask Allah Azza wa Jalla to make it less. Then Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was asking then it was 45, Hazrat e Musa said no less than, it was going 40,35,30 than until its 5 times a day. Hazrat e Musa was even bargaining with this also. Hazrat e Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, ‘No I am now shy to say more less than 5’, then it was call from Allah Azza wa Jalla that good thing is for every good thing you do, rewarded with 10 times as it. So when they pray 5 times a day it will be written like they are praying 50 times a day.
There is so many…..it is big subject the Miraj Israh and Miraj anyway it was so long Insha Allah, if Allah give us life and we do one day will tell about it more detailed. So when Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam came down the Burraq was there, He was going on the Burraq and came back to Makkah where his place, his bed was not yet, it was not yet morning and his bed was not yet cold it was still warm from his body’s warmth than in the morning, He was gathering Sahaba and telling them about thing. While his coming He saw a caravan reaching Makkah, about to reach Makkah, might be camping out of Makkah because it was night. He saw all the details how many animals, how many men, how it looks like and when he reached Makkah in the morning He was telling people and it was the news were all over Makkah that Muhammad was having night journey and this and that…..and the mushriqs were saying, He is going really mad and this it is not true and not possible and how it can be and you know when you go with animal or camel you need may be 2-3 weeks to reach there. Then Hazrat e Abu Bakar, it was news reached to Hazrat e Abu Bakar it came and He was telling, somebody was telling him and He was saying if Hazrat e Muhammad saying this, it is true if, it is ‘Sadiq’. Then He went to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam and He was telling, asking, then He was saying, ‘Amanna wa Sadaqna’. He believed in Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam whatever He said. That day he had title ‘As -Siddiq’, Abu Bakar Siddiq , the true one, the believer and then they come and ask him the mushriqs were asking him about the details and the details of Baitul Maqdis and how it looks like, how many things because Hazrat e Jibreel was opening his wings and the details like a television He was watching what was shown the Masjid ul Aqsa, Baitul Maqdis. Then they said, you know so many things, then He said, the proof for this is there is a caravan to reach now, it will be entering Makkah now. This much animals, camels, donkeys and peoples and this and Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was telling them the details of the caravan and they were laughing, that moment the caravan was reaching Makkah some people become Muslim some the mushriqs who are really tough they are becoming more mushriq they are coming more unbeliever (Kaafir).
And there is also so many miracles of Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam. One of them is for moon that splitted and one that they don’t have water and it was water coming, Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was spitting in the well. Also in Makkah I think, and Medina there is lots of well in Medina that Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam spitting in it and it was becoming some of them had salty water, it becoming sweet water and but also that so many miracles of Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam. People coming to Islam not coming to Islam Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam used to every year, use to go to, because Hajj, Hajj time it was Hajj time every year He was going to Peak to Arafah and calling people because they make tents and He is calling people to Islam telling about himself. Some people say yes some people asking what you offer us if we believe in you, do you offer this, do you offer that, we want money, some people said we don’t believe in you, some people said will look and some people not interested and you know every tent Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam goes, after him there was one man after him with…..braided hair come after him and telling them don’t believe in him you know He is insulting our idols and He is insulting our religion, He is out of us, I don’t know and then they go. One of the Sahaba, they was a child that time, he was telling them later on that he was asking his father who is that man is coming after him all the tents he is going, he said that is his uncle Abu Lahab, his uncle Abu Lahab coming making opposite propaganda of Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam.
In the year, that year 3 years before that year there was people from Medina from Medina Munawwara coming for Hajj, seven they were seven that time Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was offering them Islam and they were becoming Muslim this people because also they have more soft heart I think they knew about it and because in Medina there were 3 tribes of jewish people and this jewish people were telling them that soon there will be Prophet coming and this Prophet will be our Prophet and we will beat you and we will be victorious on you and take over and then they were telling about the details of the Prophet was coming…..but when Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam came they didn’t accept, they said we want to have from Bani Israel and then some, there is also lots of jewish people, rabbis and things they come to make exam to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam test asking him so many things about old people, about history, about Sayyidina Musa, about so many things some of them becoming muslim, some of them not coming Muslim saying as they are. So this Medina people knew about Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, they believed in him and they became muslim and they promise to come next year to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam to bring more people and come next year, next year they come back with 12 people, they were 12 people and they make Bay’ah for Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam. They say Bay’ah tun Nisa, Bay’ah tun Nisa it is, it is in the Surah Mumtahina also they say that they make Bay’ah for Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam promising that they don’t make shirk for Allah they don’t…..take partners, they don’t make sin as adultery, as theft, as killing their children, as and talking lie all the kind of sins but the most first one is not take partners for Allah Azza wa Jalla. This is the Bay’ah of them and than they said Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was…..the next year, the third year they came with 70 people, there were 2 ladies between them they came 70 people to take Bay’ah of Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam.
But in this second year Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was sending somebody to them also with them to Medina to teach them Qur’an and to teach them how to pray and so it was…..this, in this Medina everybody start to know about Islam and Sayyidina Muhammad and the muslims and they are becoming more muslims, they are becoming more muslims in Medina it was Yathrib that time. And then the third year, they come they make Bay’ah the 70 men and 2 ladies they make Bay’ah secretly they are going in the middle of the night to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam. This Bay’ah was ordered that they have to protect Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam if he go out of Makkah to them to protect him with their money, with their blood, with their soul to protect Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam with their everything they own and to fight back whoever comes to attack or it was that they order for fighting back. Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam until that time he was not fighting back doing so many things for him but that day he was saying coming order that you can fight back to them to the mushriqs to unbelievers so it was…..this Bay’ah was like happened there and there was the shaitan was hard working also he was telling the people, waking up the other people because they came with the unbelievers also, they came with mushriqs also to Haj from Medina they said your people are betraying you, they are going making one camp with Muhammad, he was screaming but they all, Hazrat e Abbas was going with Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wasallam to this place where they were having Bay’ah, the second time and then Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was saying it is open to Hijra for Hijra, it was permission to Hijra to Medina so there is permission to Hijrat ul Medina. The Sahaba start to go slowly-slowly to Medina but Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was still waiting for order.
