And remember Abraham and Ishmael raised the foundations of the House with this prayer: "Our Lord! Accept this service from us.’ For Thou art the All-Hearing, the All-knowing. Our Lord! Make of us Muslims, bowing to Thy Will, and of our progeny a people Muslim, bowing to Thy Will; and show us our place for the celebration of due rites; and turn unto us in Mercy; for Thou art the Oft-Returning, Most Merciful. Our Lord! Send amongst them an Messenger of their own, who shall rehearse Thy Signs to them and instruct them in scripture and teach them wisdom and sanctify them: For Thou art the Exalted in Might, the Wise."
(S: 2, V: 127-129)
And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said. "O Children of Israel! I am the apostle of God sent to you, conﬁrming the Law, which came before me, and giving Glad Tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad." But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said, "this is evident Sorcery." (S: 61, v: 6)
Behold! God took the covenant of the prophets, saying: ”1 give you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you An Apostle, conﬁrming what is with you; do ye believe in him and render him help." God said: "Do ye agree, and take this my Covenant as binding on you?" They said: "We do agree." He " said: "Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.'' (S: 3, V: 81)
"Those who follow the apostle, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own scriptures, in the Law and the Gospel,’ for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad and impure; He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honor him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him, it is they who will prosper." Say: "0 men! I am sent unto you all, as the Messenger of God, to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth: there is no god but He: it is He That gives both life and death. So believe in God and His Messenger, the Unlettered Prophet, who believeth in God and His words: follow him that so ye may be guided." (S: 7, V: 157-158)
How then if We brought from each people a witness, and We brought thee as a witness against these people! On that day those who reject Faith and disobey the apostle will wish that the earth were made one with them: But never will they hide a single fact from God. (S: 4, V: 41-42)
Muhammad is the apostle of God and those who are with him are strong against Unbelievers, but compassionate amongst each other. Thou wilt see them bow and prostrate themselves in prayer, seeking Grace from God and His Good Pleasure. On their faces are their marks, being the traces of their prostration. This is their similitude in the Torah; and their similitude in the Gospel is:
(S: 48, V: 29)
Another distinction of the Prophet (PBUH) is that unlike his proceeding prophets he came with the religion that is not particular for people of his tribe, nation or country but it is a universal religion for the entire mankind.
We have not sent thee but as a universal Messenger to men, giving them glad tidings, and warning them against sin, but most men understand not. (S: 34. V: 28)
It is He Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, that he may proclaim it over all religion, even though the Pagans may detest it. (S: 61, V: 9)
We sent thee not, but as a Mercy for all creatures. (S: 21, V: 107)
Ye have indeed in the Messenger of God a beautiful pattern of conduct for any one whose hope is in God and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of God. (S: 33, V: 21)
And thou stand on an exalted standard of character. (S: 68, V: 4)
And, raised high is the esteem in which thou art held. (S: 94, V: 4)
A similar favor have ye already received in that We have sent among you an Messenger of your own, rehearsing to you Our Signs, and sanctifying you, and instructing you in Scripture and Wisdom, and in new knowledge. (S: 2, V: 151)
Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of God, and the Seal of the Prophets: and God has full knowledge of all things. (S: 33, V: 40)
Verily this is a Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds: With it came down the spirit of Faith and Truth- To thy heart and mind that thou may admonish in the perspicuous Arabic tongue. Without doubt it is announced in the mystic Books of former peoples.
(S: 26, V: 192-196)
But for the Grace of God thee and his Mercy, a party of them would certainly have plotted to lead thee astray. But in fact they will only lead their own souls astray. And thee they can do no harm in the least. For God hath sent down to thee the Book and wisdom and taught thee what thou knew not before: And great is the Grace of God unto thee.
(S:4, V: 113)
It is part of the Mercy of God that thou dost deal gently with them, were thou severe or harsh-hearted, they would have broken away from about thee: so pass over their faults, and ask for God’s forgiveness for them; and consult them in affairs of moment. Then, when thou hast taken a decision put thy trust in God, for God loves those who put their trust in Him.
(S: 3, V: 159)
Say: “Truly my prayer and my service of sacrifice, my life and my death, are all for God, the Cherisher of the Worlds: No partner hath He: this am I commanded, and I am the first of those who bow to His will.”
Say: If it be that your fathers, your sons, your brother, your mates, or your kindred; the wealth that ye have gained; the commerce in which ye fear a decline: or the dwellings in which ye delight – are dearer to you than God, or His Messenger, or the striving in His cause; then wait until God brings about His decision: and God guides not the rebellious.
(S: 9, V: 24)
Have we not Expanded thee thy breast? And removed from thee thy burden? (S: 94, V: 1 & 2)
And soon will thy Guardian-Lord give thee that wherewith thou shall be well please. (S: 93, V: 5)
To thee have We granted the Fount of Abundance. (S: 108, V: 1)
In order that ye O men may believe in God and His Messenger, that ye may assist and honor Him, and celebrate His praise morning and evening. (S: 48, V: 5)
Now hath come unto ' you a Messenger from amongst yourselves: it grieves him that ye should perish: ardently anxious is he over you: to the Believers is he most kind and merciful. But if they turn away, Say: "God suffices me: there is no god but He: On Him is my trust, He the Lord of the Throne of Glory Supreme!" (S: 9, V: 128-129)
Revelations for the Holy Prophet (PBUH) started in the form of true dreams. Then he started staying in the cave of Hira for periods of many days.
In the holy month of Ramadan, when the age of Holy Prophet (PBUH) was forty years, Gabriel appeared before him and rehearsed the first five verses of Surah Alaq.
Proclaim! (Or read!) In the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created- Created man, out of a mere clot of congealed blood: Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful; He Who taught the use of the pen, taught man that which he knew not. (S: 96, V: 1-5)
On the night of 27"‘ day of Rajab, the twelfth year of his prophethood, God sent Gabriel to take him on the journey of his Ascension. In that night, the beloved prophet of God journeyed from Ka’aba to the Temple of Solomon; from there he was taken up to the Inhabited Dwelling (Bait ul mamoor) in the heavens and witnessed many signs of God.
By the Star when it goes down, your Companion is neither astray nor being misled. Nor does he say aught of his own Desire. It is no less than inspiration sent down to him: He was taught by one Mighty in Power. Endued with Wisdom: for he appeared in stately form; While he was in the highest part of the horizon: Then he approached and came closer, And was at a distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer; So did God convey the inspiration to His Servant- conveyed what He meant to convey. The Prophet's mind and heart in no way falsified that which he saw. Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he saw? For indeed he saw him at a second descent, near the Lore- tree beyond which none may pass: Near it is the Garden of Abode. Behold, the Lote-tree was shrouded in mystery unspeakable! His sight never, swerved, nor did it go wrong! For truly did he see, of the Signs of his Lord, the Greatest! Have ye seen Lat. and Uzza, and another, the third goddess, Manat? What, for you the male sex, and for Him, the female? Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair! These are nothing but names which, ye have devised, ye and your fathers, for which God has sent down no authority whatever. They follow nothing but conjecture and what their own souls desire! Even though there has already come to them Guidance from their Lord! Nay, shall man have just anything he hankers after? But it is to God that the End and the Beginning of all things belong. How many- so-ever be the angels in the heavens, their intercession will avail nothing except after God has given leave for whom He pleases and that he is acceptable to Him. Those who believe not in the ‘Hereafter, name the angels with female names. But they have no knowledge therein. They follow nothing but conjecture,‘ and conjecture avails nothing against Truth. Therefore shun those who turn away from Our Message and desire nothing but the life of this world. That is as far as knowledge will reach them. Verily thy Lord knows best those who stray from His Path, and He knows best those who receive guidance. Yea, to God belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: so that He rewards those who do evil, according to their deeds, and He rewards those who do 800d, with what is best.
(S; 53, V; 1-31)
All the prophets of God had their Ascension according to their reach and access, position and status.
“And We made Abraham to witness the angels Of the earth and the heavens.”
About Jacob it is written in Old Testament: And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba and went toward Haran. And he lighted upon a certain place and tarried there all night, because the sun was set and he took of the stones of that place and put them for his pillows and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed and behold a ladder set up on the earth and the top of it reached to heaven and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And behold, the Lord stood above it and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father and the God of Isaac.‘ the land whereupon thou lies to thee will I give it and to thy seed. (Genesis Ch: 28, 10-13)
The spiritual and mystical experiences of the prophets of Israel have been told in the Old Testament. In the Gospel, revelations of John’s are stated in detail. In that account, which is spread over 22 chapters, his spiritual experiences contain the details of Hell and Heaven,’ Judgment, Reward, Punishment, Dooms Day, which are similar to the details given in the holy Quran.
Holy Prophet (PBUH) went beyond those limits and boundaries about which Gabriel said; if I exceeded these limits I would burn my wings because of the extensive Beatiﬁc Vision. Leader of Prophets: God graced His beloved prophet with His privacy and during witnessing of the Beatiﬁc Visions of God, his vision did not blur, he did not wink his eyes nor did it exceed it limits. He led the assembly of all the prophets in the prayer, He met with Adam on the ﬁrst heaven; in the second heaven he saw Yahya and Christ, in the third, he saw Joseph, in the fourth he saw Idrees, In the ﬁfth saw Aaron, in the six he met with Moses and in the seventh he saw Abraham.
Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “When I was departing from Moses he wept and said he was envying me as God had blessed the one who came after him with more followers worthy to enter the Paradise. When I reached the seventh heaven and saw Abraham, sitting beside the Extolled House, where seventy thousand new angels are admitted every day. l greeted him and he greeted me.”
In the night of 27”‘ Rajab, when the Holy Prophet (PBUH) was resting in the house of Umm-e-Hani, Gabriel came and said, “God has invited you to have a round of the heavens.” Then Gabriel took him to Ka’aba where opened his chest and washed his heart with the water of Zam zam, ﬁlled it with Noor and presented to him the Burraq; a white ﬂying horse, swift as light to ride on. And, he traveled upon it up to the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem where all the prophets received him and he led the congregation, in their prayer. After that he was taken to the heavens.
After having seen the prophets of God in the heavens, he stepped up to the Lote Tree, the ﬁnal limit and the range of ﬂight of angels, with Gabriel. Gabriel said, “I cannot accompany thee beyond this station, now on you are at your own.”
NB: For further details please see Part I&II of this book.
The holy Quran; the divine book given to the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is a document of mystical knowledge and the formulas of the conquest of the universe. In this book everything big or small has been described in detail. All the sciences that ever existed millions of years ago or would be discovered ever henceforth have been related in the holy Quran.
Events and incidents of the prophets of God related in the holy Quran in actual effect describe laws concerning the negation of Time and Space, nullification of gravitational force, reality of past and future and what this Space and Timelessness are? Knowledge about both the seen and the unseen realms is referred therein. In the story of Queen of Sheba, for instance, when King Solomon is told that the Queen would be there soon and he tells his courtiers that he wanted her throne there before she reach there.
A giant jinn said, “I can fetch that throne before you adjourn thy court.”
Listening to his claim, a man versed with the Knowledge of the Book, said, “Have it, before you could wink your eye.” And, with that the throne was physically there. The distance involved was around 2,500 kilometers, which was made obsolete in a fraction of a second.
It has been described the this story that man’s teach and excuse is far greater than every other creature provided that he could equip himself with that knowledge, which has been describe as the Knowledge of the Book.
In order to develop human conscious, God inspired scientists and scholars with physical sciences. Ensuing these inspirations, ever-new discoveries have been made possible and these discoveries and exploration of new dimensions of science resulted into expansion of man’s conscious.
Scientists have discovered that there is a genre of ants that can transport itself from one place to another and a kind of ﬁsh is found in the sea, which jumps into the air and dissolves into thin air to transport itself at any desired distance. The spatio-temporal limits absolve for these creatures at their will. It means that if any creature has this ability of liberating itself from spatio-temporal constraints then, the most cardinal child of nature; man certainly also possesses this ability.
Man claims to walk in the Space after getting out of the earthly atmosphere.
Man is shifting from one zone to another zone since Eternity to Inﬁnity and would continue forever, that is, when man enters a zone, he adapts to the conditions of that zone physically, sensually and mentally. Because, according to the spiritual point of view, man is blessed with two sets of senses. One in which he is free from the spatio-temporal limitations and in the other he remains conﬁned in Time and Space.
Man is composed of two layers; one that keeps on disintegrating every moment and all its movements in this, sphere are merely fiction, whereas the second layer is the real and is knitted with waves of light. The physical body composed of elements is like a mask worn by the real tier of man. When the real man behind the mask leaves it, supply of energy to the elemental body is switch off.
When the live electric wire is touched, we suffer a shock This shock results from the ﬂow of extra amount of current in the physical body, which increases the vibrations of the physical body and we feel it as a shock. If the electric current ﬂowing in the physical body drops below than a certain level, man can fall and faint to unconsciousness. And, when using the precautions we touch the live wires in such a manner that the electric current is not earthed through our body, we do not feel any extra vibration; so no shock is experienced.
It has been established from the incidents of many Auliyasi that a person acquainted with the electric current ﬂowing in him, which they have termed as Nasma; can stop the ﬂow of this current, can store extra voltage in_ him and can arose that hidden ability, which has been denominated as ‘Sultan’ by the holy Quran and can get out of the boundaries of the earth and the skies.
God proclaims in the holy Quran, “O ye the men and the Jinns, ye cannot get out of the boundaries of the earth and the heavens unless you have Sultan.” Here ‘sultan’ is indicative of that very ability of man, which enables him to use his stores of extra amount of electric charge. In the story of Ascension of the Holy Prophet (PBUH): Teacher of the Knowledge of the Conquest of the cosmos, this very thing has been high lighted for our attention and consideration.
Veil of the Beatiﬁc Vision: (fed is encompassing everything. Holy Prophet (PBUH) kept himself dependent upon God and lived all his physical, mental and spiritual life according to the will of God. Indeed because special mercy of God he was entrusted with the Beatiﬁc Vision of God. To elevate him to the exalted position of His Closest Nearness God ﬁlled the atmosphere with lights and charged him with those potentials that enabled him to rise and transport himself from the holy shrine of Ka’aba to The Temple of Solomon ‘and beyond in to the heavens. Greetings and applaud of prophets of God, the company of the Gabriel further boosted the stores of Noor in him and the Beloved Prophet got closer and closer to ‘his Loving God, so much so that the distance between them reduced to two bow length or even less. God talked to him what he willed and his heart did not falsify him.
