  20. 20. River of Kausar • While walking in Jannah, Prophet (S) suddenly found himself along a river. • the banks of which are golden, • it flows on rubies and corals and emeralds and pearls and diamonds instead of pebbles, • its earth smells sweeter than musk, • its water is whiter than milk, • cooler than snow, • and sweeter than honey, • On the Day of Judgement, the water jugs set at it will be as numerous as the stars in the sky, • the one who drinks from it would never thirst; and the one who is deprived of it will never have his thirst satisfied.

  25. 25. Strength of a Believer • The disbelievers went to see Abu Bakr(ra), and he readily said: “Yes, I do verify it.” It was on this occasion that he earned the title of As-Siddiq (the verifier of the truth). • He said if Allah can send an angel to Prophet (S) every day, He can also call Prophet (S) to visit the Heavens too. • The lesson for us, the Muslims, is that if it is in the Qur’an or reported authentically as a Sunnah, then we should believe in it, and act upon it.
  26. 26. A Physical Journey • The Prophet (S) took this journey in a fully conscious state of mind, • with body and soul, flesh and blood. • The fact that disbelievers denied and made fun of it, is enough to prove that Prophet (S) told them he took this journey physically.
  27. 27. When did all this happen? • Prevalent opinion of later scholars is that it falls on 27th Rajab. • Other opinions; • Shawal – 12th year of Prophethood (Tabari) • 17th Ramadan – 12th year of Prophethood (Ibn Sa’ad) • 17th Ramadan – 13th year of Prophethood (Baihaqi) • There is no hadeeth to establish the date of Isra Al Miraj. • Nor are there any narrations from any companions about any specific date. • Prophet (S) and his companions did not single out this event nor did they celebrate it any way.
