rusty intro copy

FJ sky

Glory to Him who made His servant travel by night from the sacred place of worship to the furthest place of worship.  ( 17:1)

…SubhanAllah…night upon night Alah Ta’ala has been displaying His Qudrat and stunning theatrics with skies that take the breath away…heads turn upwards…triggering hearts to reflect upon the hallowed Al Israa’ Wal Miraj…

the sound of soaring

you can hear it

listen

the roaring pulse rushing through veins

throbbing molecules crashing bouncing

not one created particle not rejoicing in the sound of soaring 

…SubhanAllah! Our Beloved Nabi was instructed by Jibreel Alaihis Sallam to alight and pray in this most Radiant of Cities, a land filled with date palms, the first of several stops on this Blessed Night Journey to His Lord….. Jibreel Alaihis Sallam on the right, was holding the stirrup and Mika’il Alaihis Sallam on the left , holding the reins of Buraq on this sacred mission. Jibreel Alaihis Sallam then informed our Beloved praised servant of Allah Ta’ala SallAllahu alaihi wasallam that he had just prayed in a tayba, aland of pastures where his Hijrah would later take place. So long before Yathrib became At-Tayba the land was beautified by not only the presence of the Angelic Hosts, Buraq, the ever obedient lightning-mount who had also transported previous Prophets, but honoured and perfumed by the best of creation SallAllahu alaihi wasallam…

…inspired by The Prophet’s Night Journey and Heavenly Ascent by Sayyid Muhammad ibn ‘Alawi al-Maliki Rahmatullahi alaihi…

a spiritual opening…Insha’Allah the place of Umm Hani RadhiAllahu anha’s house will be easily located once the Mataf of Masjid al-Haram expansion is complete…

Perpetual salutations on the Rider of the Lightning-Mount.

Perpetual salutations on the Holder of the Stunning Miracles.

Perpetual salutations on the Possessor of the Greatest Pre-Eminence.

Perpetual salutations on the Bringer of Deliverance.

Perpetual salutations on the Holder of the Exalted Station.

Perpetual salutations on the Fully Witnessed One.

Perpetual salutations on the Distinguished One in the Divine Presence.

The caravan leader for us is the Prince of Hijaz,

By his name our soul acquires peace!

(Iqbal Rahmatullahi alaihi)
