‘Verily there is nothing that brings you closer to Paradise except that I have commanded you with it.  And there is nothing that brings you closer to the Hell-Fire except that I have prohibited you from it. Indeed Jibra’eel breathed into my soul.

Indeed a person does not die until all that which is to be provided to him will be given to him.  So fear Allaah and make your request for that which is good and lawful, do not delay your provision by requesting it by disobedience to Allah, since you cannot achieve what is with Allaah except with obedience to Him.’

They said: Allaah and his Messenger know better!  We used to say that a great man was born this night and a great man died.

So the Messenger of Allaah said: ‘Indeed a star does not shoot out due to the death of anyone nor for the birth of anyone, however if our Lord -Tabaraka wa Ta’ala Ismuhu – decides a matter the carriers of the ‘Arsh glorify Allaah, then the people of the heavens who are after them glorify Allaah until this glorification reaches the people of the skies of the Duniya.  Then those who were after the carriers of the ‘Arsh say to the carriers of the ‘Arsh: ‘what did your lord say to you?’ So they inform them of what He said.

The Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- continued saying: So some of the people of the heavens inquired from the other people, until the news reaches the sky of this Duniya then the Jinn seize this statement and they throw this to their Aawliyaa (friends) and they pass it on so whatever they mention correctly then this is the truth, however they increase upon this and they mention extra things.’

Abu Dharr adds: ‘When the Messenger came I could not be patient and asked: ‘O Prophet of Allaah, may Allaah make me a sacrifice for you, who were you talking to among the black rocks? I did not hear anyone respond to you with anything?’

The Messenger said: ‘That was Jibraeel who came to me in the area where the rocks are black, and he said: ‘Give glad-tidings to your Ummah that whoever dies and does not associate anything with Allaah will enter Paradise.’

So I asked: ‘O Jibraeel, even if that person steals and even if he commits Zina?’ He: said: ‘yes.’

Mu’adh asked: ‘Shall I not inform the people about this?’

The Messenger of Allaah said: ‘Let the people do good actions, since in Paradise there are a hundred levels, between every level is the distance between the heavens and the earth. Al-Firdaus is the highest of Paradise and its center, and above that is the ‘Arsh of ar-Rahman, from there spring-forth the rivers of Paradise, so when you ask Allaah then ask Him for al-Firdaus.’

I swear by Allaah, if Allaah punishes me, he will punish me so much, the like of which no-one from the earth has been punished.’

So, when he died they did what he had said. Then Allaah ordered the land to gather what it had, and ordered the sea to gather what it had in it, and there he was standing within Allaah’s Grip.

Allaah –Ta’ala – said: ‘O son of Adam! What made you do what you did?

He answered: ‘Yes, my Lord, from being fearful of You – [in another narration: from being fearful of You and You know best].

The man mentions: I heard what the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- said before the slave girl could come out to me, so I said: ‘Assalamu alaykum, can I enter?’

The Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- replied: Alaykum, come in’

The man continues: I entered and asked the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam: ‘With what have you been sent?’

The Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- answered:

‘I have not come to you except with goodness, I came to you so that you worship Allaah Alone who has no Partner, and leave the worship of Laat and ‘Uzza (idols). That you pray the five prayers in the day and night, that you fast a month in the year.  That you perform the pilgrimage of the House and you take from the wealth of your rich people and give it to the poor people. Indeed Allaah knows the good and indeed there is from knowledge that which is only known to Allaah, there are five things which only Allaah knows: <<Verily, Allaah! With Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour, He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs. No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allaah is All-­Knower, All-­Aware (of things).>>

He answered: ‘I was taken up on a night journey.’

Abu Jahl asked: ‘Where to?’

He answered: ‘To Bait ul-Maqdis.’(Jerusalem)

He asked: ‘Then you returned here amongst us?’ (i.e. returned back)

The Messenger sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- answered: ‘Yes.’

Abu Jahl pretended to accept what the Messenger sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said fearing that the Messenger sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam might retract his statement and make Abu Jahl look like a liar when he called his people to listen to the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam.

Abu Jahl said to the Messenger sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam: ‘Can I call my people and you can tell them what you told me?’

The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said: ‘Yes.’

Abu Jahl said: ‘Come O people of Bani Ka’b bin Luwee!’

A large group of people came to him and sat with them.

Abu Jahl said: ‘Tell your people what you told me.’

The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Indeed I was taken up on a night journey.’

They asked: ‘Where to?’

He answered: ‘To Bait ul-Maqdis.’

He asked: ‘Then you returned here amongst us?’ (i.e. returned back)

The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam answered: ‘Yes.’

Ibn Abbas said: ‘So there were those who were applauding and those who were placing their hands on their heads astonished by the lie as they claimed it to be.’

They said: ‘Could you describe the Masjid for us – and there were a group of people who had just recently travelled to that country and had seen the Masjid – !?’

The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘I began to describe the Masjid so much so that I became confused with some of the descriptions. Then the Masjid was brought so I could see it, until it was placed just near the house of ‘Uqail, so I described it while I was looking at it.’

Ibn Abbas said: ‘Even with this vivid description I could not memorize all of it – , then he said: the people said: As for the description; then we swear by Allaah! That he is correct.’

Al-Miqdad became angry, I became astonished, because they did not say anything but good. Then he turned to the man and said: ‘What makes a person wish that he was present when Allaah has made him absent.  He does not know, if he had witnessed it, how he would have been at that time? I swear by Allaah there were a people that were present at the time of the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam, who Allaah will throw on their nostrils in the Hell-Fire, because they did not respond to the Messenger sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- nor did they believe in him. Do you not praise Allaah, for taking you out from your mothers’ wombs not knowing anything except your Lord and believing in that which your Prophet was sent with. Indeed you have been saved from trials by others being trialed instead of you.

I swear by Allaah, that Allaah sent the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- in the severest time that any Prophet from among the Prophets was ever sent, in any period of time including the Jahileeyah time period (period of ignorance before Islaam).

They would not regard any religion better than the worship of idols, then the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- came with the Furqan (the Criterion) he separated the truth from falsehood with this Criterion, and he separated a father from his son, so much so that a man would see his father and his son or his brother as a disbeliever.

And indeed Allaah opened the lock of his heart with Eemaan, and he knows if he is destroyed he enters the fire, it does not make him happy that his beloved is in the fire.
