History of Islam  - 
 
Islamic sources

The Night Journey started with the appearance of the Angel Gabriel (alaihis salam) who had been bringing the revelation of the Qur'an). The angel led Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) to a white mule with wings attached to its thighs. This mule had carried other prophets, including Abraham (alaihis salam), and was the buraq or spirit horse. Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) got on and went high into the sky.

He arrived at Jerusalem where he met many prophets including Abraham (alaihis salam), Moses (alaihis salam) and Jesus (alaihis salam). Abraham (alaihis salam)looked like no one else, but also no one did not look like him. Moses (alaihis salam) was tall, tanned, slim and with a hooked nose and curly hair. Jesus (alaihis salam) was red skinned of medium height with straight hair and many moles on his face. He looked like he had come out of a bath. His hair looked wet although it was not wet. Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) was asked to lead them in prayer and did.

Three dishes were placed in front of Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) containing water, wine and milk. Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam)said he knew of the prophecy that if he chose water the Muslim community would drown, if he chose wine they would leave the true path, and if he chose milk they would follow the true religion of the one God. He chose milk and drank from it. Gabriel (alaihis salam) confirmed the prophecy.

Then Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) lifted up to the first gate of heaven guarded by an angel Ishmael who was in charge of 12,000 more and each of those had 12,000 of their own. All these 144,000,001 angels guarded the one gate. Ishmael asked Gabriel (alaihis salam) if Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) was the one sent to deliver God's message to humankind and Gabriel (alaihis salam) confirmed this, so Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) was let through with some prayers.

Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) passed through seven heavenly realms. In the First Sky he saw Adam (alaihis salam) being shown the souls of his descendents both good and bad. In the Second Sky he saw Jesus (alaihis salam) and John, son of Zachariah. In the Third Sky he saw the handsome Joseph (alaihis salam), son of Jacob (alaihis salam). In the Fourth Sky he saw Idris (alaihis salam), the prophet from before the flood. In the Fifth Sky he saw Moses' (alaihis salam) older brother, Harun (alaihis salam), with his long white beard. In the Sixth Sky Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) met a tall man with a hooked nose and Gabriel (alaihis salam) said it was Moses (alaihis salam). In the Seventh Sky Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) saw an old man in a seat by the gate to Paradise where 70,000 angels pass through each day but do not return until Judgment Day. Gabriel (alaihis salam) identified him as Abraham (alaihis salam). Gabriel (alaihis salam) then took Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) into Paradise where he spoke to God.

God told him the importance of regular prayers. On the way back Moses (alaihis salam) asked how many prayers had been commanded and Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) said fifty a day. Moses (alaihis salam) told him to go back to God and get the number cut. God reduced the number to ten a day but Moses (alaihis salam) again said this was too many. Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam)returned and they were reduced to five times a day. Moses said this was still too many, but Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) told Moses he would be too embarrassed to return to God again. Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) returned to Makkah.

Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) described his journey to followers but many did not believe he had gone to Jerusalem in one night, seen the Seven Heavens and had spoken with God. Some who stopped believing went to Abu Bakr and Abu Bakr saw Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam), asking him to describe Jerusalem. He did so, and Abu Bakr declared all the details were accurate and so Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) must have been there.

Qur'an

Exalted is He who took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Seeing.
—Quran, Chapter 17 (Al-Isra) verse 1

And [remember, O Muhammad], when We told you, "Indeed, your Lord has encompassed the people." And We did not make the sight which We showed you except as a trial for the people, as was the accursed tree [mentioned] in the Qur'an. And We threaten them, but it increases them not except in great transgression.
—Quran, Chapter 17 (Al-Isra) verse 60

And he certainly saw him in another descent,
At the Lote-tree of the Utmost Boundary
Near it is the Garden of Refuge -
When there covered the Lote Tree that which covered [it]
The sight [of the Prophet] did not swerve, nor did it transgress [its limit].
He certainly saw of the greatest signs of his Lord.
—Quran, Chapter 53 (An-Najm), verses 13-18

Hadith

The whole incident of Isra and Mi'raj is mentioned in great details in the following hadith narrated by Anas ibn Sa'sa'a:

The Prophet said, "While I was at the House in a state midway between sleep and wakefulness, (an angel recognized me) as the man lying between two men. A golden tray full of wisdom and belief was brought to me and my body was cut open from the throat to the lower part of the abdomen and then my abdomen was washed with Zam-zam water and (my heart was) filled with wisdom and belief.

Al-Buraq, a white animal, smaller than a mule and bigger than a donkey was brought to me and I set out with Jibreel. When I reached the nearest heaven. Jibreel said to the heaven gate-keeper, 'Open the gate.' The gatekeeper asked, 'Who is it?' He said, 'Jibreel.' The gate-keeper,' Who is accompanying you?' Gabriel said, 'Muhammad.' The gate-keeper said, 'Has he been called?' Jibreel said, 'Yes.' Then it was said, 'He is welcomed. What a wonderful visit his is!' Then I met Adam and greeted him and he said, 'You are welcomed O son and a Prophet.'

Then we ascended to the second heaven. It was asked, 'Who is it?' Jibreel said, 'Jibreel.' It was said, 'Who is with you?' He said, 'Muhammad' It was asked, 'Has he been sent for?' He said, 'Yes.' It was said, 'He is welcomed. What a wonderful visit his is!" Then I met Isa (Jesus) and Yahya (John the Baptist) who said, 'You are welcomed, O brother and a Prophet.'

Then we ascended to the third heaven. It was asked, 'Who is it?' Jibreel said, 'Jibreel.' It was asked, 'Who is with you? Jibreel said, 'Muhammad.' It was asked, 'Has he been sent for?' 'Yes,' said Jibreel. 'He is welcomed. What a wonderful visit his is!' (The Prophet added:). There I met Joseph and greeted him, and he replied, 'You are welcomed, O brother and a Prophet!'

Then we ascended to the 4th heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in the previous heavens. There I met Idris and greeted him. He said, 'You are welcomed O brother and Prophet.'

Then we ascended to the 5th heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in previous heavens. there I met and greeted Aaron who said, 'You are welcomed O brother and a Prophet".

Then we ascended to the 6th heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in the previous heavens. There I met and greeted Moses who said, 'You are welcomed O brother and a Prophet.' When I proceeded on, he started weeping and on being asked why he was weeping, he said, 'O Lord! Followers of this youth who was sent after me will enter Paradise in greater number than my followers.'

Then we ascended to the seventh heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in the previous heavens. There I met and greeted Ibrahim who said, 'You are welcomed o son and a Prophet.'

Then I was shown Al-Bait-al-Ma'mur (i.e. Allah's House). I asked Jibreel about it and he said, This is Al Bait-ul-Ma'mur where 70,000 angels perform prayers daily and when they leave they never return to it (but always a fresh batch comes into it daily).'

Then I was shown Sidrat al-Muntaha (i.e. a tree in the seventh heaven) and I saw its Nabk fruits which resembled the clay jugs of Hajr (i.e. a town in Arabia), and its leaves were like the ears of elephants, and four rivers originated at its root, two of them were apparent and two were hidden. I asked Jibreel about those rivers and he said, 'The two hidden rivers are in Paradise, and the apparent ones are the Nile and the Euphrates.'
Then fifty prayers were enjoined on me. I descended till I met Moses who asked me, 'What have you done?' I said, 'Fifty prayers have been enjoined on me.' He said, 'I know the people better than you, because I had the hardest experience to bring Bani Israel to obedience. Your followers cannot put up with such obligation. So, return to your Lord and request Him (to reduce the number of prayers.' I returned and requested Allah (for reduction) and He made it forty. I returned and (met Moses) and had a similar discussion, and then returned again to Allah for reduction and He made it thirty, then twenty, then ten, and then I came to Moses who repeated the same advice. Ultimately Allah reduced it to five. When I came to Moses again, he said, 'What have you done?' I said, 'Allah has made it five only.' He repeated the same advice but I said that I surrendered (to Allah's Final Order)'" Allah's Apostle was addressed by Allah, "I have decreed My Obligation and have reduced the burden on My slaves, and I shall reward a single good deed as if it were ten good deeds.
—Sahih al-Bukhari, volume 4,Book 54, Hadith number 429

It is narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: I was brought al-Buraq Who is an animal white and long, larger than a donkey but smaller than a mule, who would place his hoof a distance equal to the range of vision. I mounted it and came to the Temple (Bait Maqdis in Jerusalem), then tethered it to the ring used by the prophets. I entered the mosque and prayed two rak'ahs in it, and then came out and Gabriel brought me a vessel of wine and a vessel of milk. I chose the milk, and Gabriel said: You have chosen the natural thing.

Then he took me to heaven. Jibreel then asked the (gate of heaven) to be opened and he was asked who he was. He replied: Gabriel. He was again asked: Who is with you? He (Jibreel) said: Muhammad. It was said: Has he been sent for? Jibreel replied: He has indeed been sent for. And (the door of the heaven) was opened for us and at first heaven we saw Adam. He welcomed me and prayed for my good.

Then we ascended to the second heaven. Gabriel (peace be upon him) (asked the door of heaven to be opened), and he was asked who he was. He answered: Jibreel; and was again asked: Who is with you? He replied: Muhammad. It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied: He has indeed been sent for. The gate was opened. When I entered 'Isa b. Maryam and Yahya b. Zakariya (peace be upon them), cousins from the maternal side. welcomed me and prayed for my good.

Then I was taken to the third heaven and Jibreel asked for the opening (of the door). He was asked: Who are you? He replied: Jibreel. He was (again) asked: Who is with you? He replied Muhammad ( peace be upon him). It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied He has indeed been sent for. (The gate) was opened for us and I saw Yusuf (peace be upon him) who had been given half of (world) beauty. He welcomed me prayed for my well-being.

Then he ascended with us to the fourth heaven. Jibreel (peace be upon him) asked for the (gate) to be opened, and it was said: Who is he? He replied: Gabriel. It was (again) said: Who is with you? He said: Muhammad. It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied: He has indeed been sent for. The (gate) was opened for us, and lo! Idris was there. He welcomed me and prayed for my well-being (About him) Allah, the Exalted and the Glorious, has said:" We elevated him (Idris) to the exalted position" (Qur'an xix. 57).

Then he ascended with us to the fifth heaven and Jibreel asked for the (gate) to be opened. It was said: Who is he? He replied Jibreel. It was (again) said: Who is with thee? He replied: Muhammad. It was said Has he been sent for? He replied: He has indeed been sent for. (The gate) was opened for us and then I was with Harun (Aaron) for my well-being.

Then I was taken to the sixth heaven. Gabriel (peace be upon him) asked for the door to be opened. It was said: Who is he? He replied: Jibreel. It was said: Who is with thee? He replied: Muhammad. It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied: He has indeed been sent for. (The gate) was opened for us and there I was with Moses (peace be upon him) He welcomed me and prayed for my well-being.

Then I was taken up to the seventh heaven. Jibreel asked the (gate) to be opened. It was said: Who is he? He said: Jibreel It was said. Who is with thee? He replied: Muhammad (peace be upon him.) It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied: He has indeed been sent for. (The gate) was opened for us and there I found Abraham (peace be upon him) reclining against the Bait-ul-Ma'mur and there enter into it seventy thousand angels every day, never to visit (this place) again.

Then I was taken to Sidrat-ul-Muntaha whose leaves were like elephant ears and its fruit like big earthenware vessels. And when it was covered by the Command of Allah, it underwent such a change that none amongst the creation has the power to praise its beauty.

Then Allah revealed to me a revelation and He made obligatory for me fifty prayers every day and night. Then I went down to Moses (peace be upon him) and he said: What has your Lord enjoined upon your Ummah? I said: Fifty prayers. He said: Return to thy Lord and beg for reduction (in the number of prayers), for your community shallnot be able to bear this burden. as I have put to test the children of Israil and tried them (and found them too weak to bear such a heavy burden).

He (the Holy Prophet) said: I went back to my Lord and said: My Lord, make things lighter for my Ummah. (The Lord) reduced five prayers for me. I went down to Moses and said. (The Lord) reduced five (prayers) for me, He said: Verily thy Ummah shall not be able to bear this burden; return to thy Lord and ask Him to make things lighter.

I then kept going back and forth between my Lord Blessed and Exalted and Moses, till He said: There are five prayers every day and night. O Muhammad, each being credited as ten, so that makes fifty prayers. He who intends to do a good deed and does not do it will have a good deed recorded for him; and if he does it, it will be recorded for him as ten; whereas he who intends to do an evil deed and does not do, it will not be recorded for him; and if he does it, only one evil deed will be recorded.
I then came down and when I came to Moses and informed him, he said: Go back to thy Lord and ask Him to make things lighter. Upon this the Messenger of Allah remarked: I returned to my Lord until I felt ashamed before Him.
—Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Number 309

Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah: That he heard Allah's Apostle saying, "When the people of Quraish did not believe me (i.e. the story of my Night Journey),
I stood up in Al-Hijr and Allah displayed Jerusalem in front of me, and I began describing it to them while I was looking at it."
—Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 226

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: Regarding the Statement of Allah - "And We granted the vision (Ascension to the heavens) which We made you see (as an actual eye witness) was only made as a trial for the people." (17.60) - The sights which Allah's Apostle was shown on the Night Journey when he was taken to Bait-ulMaqdis (i.e. Jerusalem) were actual sights, (not dreams). And the Cursed Tree (mentioned) in the Quran is the tree of Zaqqum (itself).
—Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 228

Narrated Abu Huraira: On the night Allah's Apostle was taken on a night journey (Mi'raj) two cups, one containing wine and the other milk, were presented to him at Jerusalem. He looked at it and took the cup of milk. Jibreel said, "Praise be to Allah Who guided you to Al-Fitra (the right path); if you had taken (the cup of) wine, your nation would have gone astray."
—Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 69, Number 482

Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet said: "While I was walking in Paradise (on the night of Mi'raj), I saw a river, on the two banks of which there were tents made of hollow pearls. I asked, "What is this, O Gabriel?' He said, 'That is the Kauthar which Your Lord has given to you.' Behold! Its scent or its mud was sharp smelling musk!" (The sub-narrator, Hudba is in doubt as to the correct expression.)
—Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 76, Number 583

It is narrated on the authority of Abdullah (b. Umar) that when the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was taken for the Night journey, he was taken to Sidrat-ul-Muntaha, which is situated on the sixth heaven, where terminates everything that ascends from the earth and is held there, and where terminates every thing that descends from above it and is held there. (It is with reference to this that) Allah said:" When that which covers covered the lote-tree" (al-Qur'an, Iiii. 16). He (the narrator) said: (It was) gold moths. He (the narrator further) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was given three (things): he was given five prayers, the concluding verses of Sura al-Baqara, and remission of serious Sins for those among his Ummah who associate not anything with Allah.
—Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Number 329

Religious belief

The Isra is the part of the journey of Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) from Mecca to Jerusalem. begins at a time when Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) was in the Masjid al-Haram, when the archangel Gabriel (alaihis salam) came to him, and brought Buraq, the traditional heavenly steed of the prophets. Buraq carries Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) to the Masjid Al Aqsa, the "Farthest Mosque", in Jerusalem. Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) alights, tethers Buraq to the Western Wall and performs prayer, where on God's command he is tested by Jibriel.
It was told by Anas ibn Malik that Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) said: Jibril brought me a vessel of wine and a vessel of milk, and I chose the milk. “Jibril (alaihis salam) said: ‘You have chosen the Fitrah (natural instinct).’ In the second part of the journey, the Mi'raj (an Arabic word that literally means “ladder”), Buraq takes him to the heavens, where he tours the seven circles of heaven, and speaks with the earlier prophets such as Abraham (ʾIbrāhīm), Moses (Musa), John the Baptist (Yaḥyā ibn Zakarīyā), and Jesus (Isa). Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) is then taken to Sidrat al-Muntaha – a holy tree in the seventh heaven that Gabriel (alaihis salam) is not allowed to pass. According to Islamic tradition, God instructs Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) that Muslims must pray fifty times per day; however, Moses (alaihis salam) tells Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) that it is very difficult for the people and urges Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) to ask for a reduction, until finally it is reduced to five times per day

Masjid al-Aqsa, the farthest mosque

The place referred to in the Quran as "the farthest mosque" from Al-Isra, has been historically considered as referring to the site of the modern-day Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. This interpretation was advanced even by the earliest biographer of Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) —Ibn Ishaq—and is supported by numerous aḥādīth. The term used for mosque, "masjid", literally means "place of prostration", and includes monotheistic places of worship but does not exclusively lend itself to physical structures but a location, as Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) stated "The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying...". When Caliph Umar conquered Jerusalem after Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) shahadat (death), a prayer house was rebuilt on the site. The structure was expanded by the Umayyad caliph Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan and finished by his son al-Walid in 705 CE. The building was repeatedly destroyed by earthquakes and rebuilt, until the reconstruction in 1033 by the Fatimid caliph Ali az-Zahir, and that version of the structure is what can be seen in the present day.

Many Western historians, such as Heribert Busse and Neal Robinson, agree that Jerusalem is the originally intended interpretation of the Quran. Muslims used to pray towards Jerusalem, but Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) changed this direction, the Qibla, to instead direct Muslims to face towards the Kaaba in Mecca on the basis of having received divine intervention.

Modern observance

The Lailat al Mi'raj also known as Shab-e-Mi'raj in Iran, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, and Miraç Kandili in Turkish, is the Muslim festival celebrating the Isra and Mi'raj. Some Muslims celebrate this event by offering optional prayers during this night, and in some Muslim countries, by illuminating cities with electric lights and candles. The celebrations around this day tend to focus on every Muslim who wants to celebrate it. Worshippers gather into mosques and perform prayer and supplication. Some people may pass their knowledge on to others by informing them The story on how Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam)'s heart was purified by an archangel (Gabriel (alaihis salam)) who filled him with knowledge and faith in preparation to enter the seven levels of heaven. After prayer (Salah, where the children can pray with the adults if they wish) food and treats are served.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque marks the place from which Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) is believed to have ascended to heaven. The exact date of the Journey is not clear, but is celebrated as though it took place before the Hijra and after Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam)'s visit to the people of Ta’if. It is considered by some to have happened just over a year before the Hijra, on the 27th of Rajab; but this date is not always recognized. This date would correspond to the Julian date of February 26, 621, or, if from the previous year, March 8, 620. In Shi'a Iran for example, Rajab 27 is the day of Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam)'s first calling or Mab'as. The Al-Aqsa Mosque and surrounding area, marks the place from which Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) is believed to have ascended to heaven, is the third-holiest place on earth for Muslims.

Many sects and offshoots belonging to Islamic mysticism interpret Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam)'s night ascent- the Isra and Mi'raj - to be an out of body experience through nonphysical environments. unlike the Sunni Muslims or mainstream Islam. The mystics claim Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) was transported to Jerusalem and onward to seven heavens, even though "the apostle's body remained where it was. Esoteric interpretations of Islam emphasise the spiritual significance of Mi'raj, seeing it as a symbol of the soul's journey and the potential of humans to rise above the comforts of material life through prayer, piety and discipline.

In view of the Islamic references from the Qur'an and Hadith, the Sunni Muslims reject these saying the Isra and Mi'raj - the night journey - mentioned in the Qur'an and Hadith, was physical yet spiritual. Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihe walaihe wassallam) was taken to the Masjid Al Aqsa, where he performed prayer leading all previous prophets and then taken to the heavens in a journey.

Hadith  - 
 
Praise be to Allaah.
It is mustahabb to pray four rak’ahs before Zuhr prayer and four after it. Al-Nasaa’i (1817) and al-Tirmidhi (428) narrated from Umm Habeebah (may Allaah be pleased with her) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever prays four (rak’ahs) before Zuhr and four after it, the Fire will not touch him.”

The version narrated by al-Tirmidhi says: “Whoever regularly performs four rak’ahs before Zuhr and four after it, Allaah will forbid him to the Fire.”

The hadeeth was classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Nasaa’i.

These rak’ahs are not something different than the regular Sunnah (Sunnah raatibah) of Zuhr prayer, rather they are the regular Sunnah.

But what is certain and should not be abandoned under any circumstances is praying four rak’ahs before Zuhr and two rak’ahs after it. As for doing four rak’ahs after it, if a person does that following this hadeeth, then he has done the Sunnah and Allaah will reward him, but if he limits it to two rak’ahs, that is sufficient.

The time for offering the Sunnah prayer before Zuhr is between the adhaan of Zuhr and the obligatory prayer.

The time for offering the Sunnah prayer after Zuhr is from after Zuhr prayer until the adhaan of ‘Asr.

And Allaah knows best.

+Muhammad Aslam. I apologetic for offending you. Seems to me that The Prophet was a great man of peace until he got to Medina. But more importantly I do not believe that anyone has ever known the mind of God even though we all have a part of him within ourselves.

Lamb Dah

Discussion  - 
 
I recently regained my faith and i wanted to express it somehow.

this is not a preach it's just a poem,but i like the meaning behind it. If you like it share it.

LAMBDAH

Before time and space and all that matters came to existence there was Chaos. But the One and the Many was already born. It put order in to the Chaos with laws that abided his pleasing and for that they are, were, and will be true.

But It felt and knew there was something missing so he created the Man as we know.

At first the One and the Many came in the form of the Hunter to do what It could.
Its aim was to complete the Ouroboros as he is Alpha and Omega and what comes after will be his eternal reign.

The One and the Many made a deal with the Sons of Man and through them the first True Word has come. And thus the First seed was planted.

When the time was the Time the One and the Many showed Itself and preached what It could.
And It was kislev.

It sacrificed for 'em and so the Second seed was planted.

After a few centuries It planted a new seed. This was somewhat violent in his ways but behind it was the Word of the Truth. Jerusalem is the key to the foul dispute.

Now the One and Many solely had to wait.
Intervene when necessary, avoid the avoidable, and of utmost essentiality,
leaving the Word of Truth.

2000 years after showing himself to the Sons of Man he has-will come again. The One and the Many of the First, Second, and Third seed will close the Ouroboros and begin to reign.

There's another essential thruth to know : the One and Many is made of good and evil and as such made the Mankind. The Good loves, in his infinite loving of all Creation, the Evil but the Evil adores the Good. Evil and Good form a dualism, of Creation and Destruction, but since nothing can really be destroyed or created the Universe will always be, whilst changing. Its also true that evil for the sake of evil is not of the One and the Many. So do not despair. Your will will never be wrong as long as you too adore the Good.
Be Good.

The Word of Thruth is written and spoken in All sacred texts to all that have the Ear and the Eye. It's also spoken elsewhere, but it's up to you to find.

If you're eager to find the Thruth first decipher the Revelation and Secondly Thelema. It's between the lines. Don't bother much with numbers 'cause they almost always tend to mislead. Remember but one number, the Number of the Beast, the Son of Man will have that number, and that number is 6 6 6.

Padre, yo quiero que me concedas dejar mi cuerpo conscientemente, líbrame de la inconsciencia, porque esa inconsciencia sería grandemente dolorosa y duradera. Padre, haz que al desprenderse mi Alma, tenga yo en mis labios, tu Palabra, tu Nombre, llamándote: “Padre, Padre mío, tenme consciente en este supremo momento en que dejo el Mundo y en que dejo el cuerpo.

“Padre mío, escucha mi imploración, Padre amado, a ti, al Cristo y al Espíritu Santo les pido con el Alma, porque es mi Alma la que te habla, oh Trilogía Divina, oh Padre, Hijo, Espíritu Santo, no permitas que yo desencarne, inconsciente, no quiero estar inconsciente en mi Desprendimiento, Líbrame Señor de esta desgracia, yo quiero estar consciente porque tu Luz me tendrá consciente, y quiero estar lleno de tu Amor, porque tu Amor me hará perdonar a los que yo llamaba: mis enemigos, pero ellos también me perdonarán a mí. Oh Espíritu Santo, ilumina mi agonía, oh Espíritu Santo, ilumina mi Camino, porque mi Camino, mi Camino del Alma, .sin Luz es infernal, no hay comparación ante la tragedia tan inmensa, como desencarnar sin Luz, por eso siempre hay que amar a la Luz, la Luz del Padre, la Luz del Cristo, la Luz d:el Espíritu Santo, para que seáis conscientes a la hora de vuestra agonía y de vuestro Desprendimiento: Padre, permíteme que yo desencarne en plena conciencia, yo te lo ruego en el Nombre de tu Unigénito amado, por sus méritos de Cristo, Yo te pido Luz del Espíritu Santo, ilumina mi agonía, Luz del Espíritu Santo fortifícame en mi Desprendimiento, Luz de Cristo, lléname de tu bálsamo amoroso y suave. Cristo ven por mí, Espíritu Santo, ven por mi; Padre, ven por mi Alma, Yo soy el Alma que le implora. Padre ven por mi”

This Saturday is Lailat-al-Miraj and on Sunday Christians are celebrating the ascension of Jesus into heaven.
On Saturday (May 16th), Muslims will celebrate Lailat-al-Miraj. They remember this as the day when Muhammad ascended into heaven (27th day of Rajab).

Quran  - 
 
Before Musa [AS] was given prophet hood, he fled from the Pharoah to the city of Madyan – he had accidentally killed a person and the Pharaoh wanted to kill Musa [AS] in revenge. Upon arrival at Madyan, he found a well. At the well he saw a group of men watering their flocks, and two women were standing behind waiting for their turn since they could not jostle with the men for position.

One of Musa’s [AS] greatest and most admirable qualities was that he would always stand up for justice, whether it benefited him, hurt him or neither of the two. So, seeing this injustice he took the flock of the women and watered them on their behalf amongst the men. Keep in mind, Musa [AS] had no benefit from this and he was exhausted after his sudden journey away from Egypt. After he was finished, Musa [AS] went to a shade made this beautiful dua,

My Lord! I am truly in need of whatever good that You bestow on me!’ [Surah Qasas:24]

Do you know what happened next?

Musa [AS] was asked by one of the two sisters to come meet their old father who wanted to reward Musa [AS] for watering the flock of his daughters…by marrying him to one of his daughters! Do you see how incredibly Allah [SWT] answered the dua of Musa [AS]? He asked Allah [SWT] that he is in desperate need of any khair to come from Allah [SWT], and Allah [SWT] gave him a house, a family and a job all in one go.

Subhan'Allaah! Don't miss this beautiful duaa.

Hadith  - 
 
عَنْ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ، قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيَّ فَقَالَ رَأَيْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَسْجُدُ فِي الْمَاءِ وَالطِّينِ حَتَّى رَأَيْتُ أَثَرَ الطِّينِ فِي جَبْهَتِهِ.

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri: I saw Allah's Messenger (SAW) prostrating in mud and water and saw the mark of mud on his forehead.

یحیی ابوسلمہ سے روایت کرتے ہیں کہ انہوں نے فرمایا کہ میں نے ابوسعید خدری رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ سے پوچھا تو انہوں نے کہا کہ میں نے رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کو پانی اور مٹی میں سجدہ کرتے ہوئے دیکھا، یہاں تک کہ مٹی کا دھبہ آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کی پیشانی پر میں نے دیکھا۔

[Sahih Al-Bukhari, Book of Adhan (Call to Prayer), Hadith: 836]
Chapter: No cleaning (rubbing) one's forehead and nose till one has completed As-Salat (the prayer).

Hadith  - 
 
The Three Types Of Soil

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “An example of the guidance and knowledge with which Allah has sent me is that of a rain that falls on different kinds of lands. One land is good; it accepts water and produces vegetation and grass in plenty. Another kind of land is dry with a solid bed that preserves the rain water so that people can drink and irrigate from it. The third kind of land is porous that can neither retain water nor produce vegetation. This is the example of those who acquire knowledge of the Deen and benefit from that which Allah sent me with, and of those who do not take heed and insist on rejecting Allah's Guidance.” [Bukhari]

The Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) likens the knowledge of Islam to rain, because both are causes of life. Rain is the cause of life for the body, while knowledge is the cause of life for the heart. Thus, just as there are three kinds of lands or soil, there are also three kinds of hearts:

1) The first is fertile land which accepts water and is ready to produce vegetation. When rain falls on it, it absorbs the water eagerly, giving rise to all sorts of pleasant vegetation. This is the example of a healthy, pure, and intelligent heart, which embraces knowledge, is guided by its intelligent nature, and thus blossoms wisdom and faith. It is eager to take knowledge, and ready to bear fruits. It is like a rich businessman who has experience and knowledge, which enables him to invest his wealth in that which brings the best profit.

2) The second kind of land is hard. It can hold water as a reservoir does and can be used to drink or irrigate from. This is the example of the heart that preserves knowledge so as to convey it accurately to others. But this person cannot extrapolate or derive conclusions from the knowledge himself. He is like a rich man who does not possess the ability to invest his wealth and increase it, but who knows how to preserve it.

3) The third kind of land is barren. It is incapable of producing vegetation or even holding water. No matter how much rain falls on it, it does not benefit by it. This is the example of the heart that does not accept any knowledge or wisdom at all. It is like a poor man who neither possesses wealth nor can he increase or preserve it.

The first of the above three examples applies to a learned man who teaches knowledge, and who calls people to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) with clear guidance; such are the inheritors of the Prophets. The second applies to one who preserves the knowledge and transmits what he hears precisely; he carries to other people precious goods that they can use for trade and investment. The third applies to one who neither accepts Allah's Guidance nor benefits from it.
