Commemorating the Prophet’s Rapture and Ascension to his Lord

[Note] The following excerpt from an excellent booklet entitled al-Anwar al-bahiyya min isra’ wa mi`raj khayr al-bariyya (The resplendent lights of the rapture and ascension of the Best of creation) by Sayyid Muhammad `Alawi al-Maliki al-Hasani (may Allah be pleased with him) includes brief explanations about the miraculous events by the author (may Allah be pleased with him).

III. The Collated Hadith of Isra’ and Mi`raj

In the name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficient Blessings and Peace upon the Messenger of Allah and his Family and Companions,

As the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace, was in al-Hijr at the House (the semi-circular space under the waterspout which is open on both sides on the Northwest side of the Ka`ba), lying down at rest between two men (his uncle Hamza and his cousin Ja`far ibn Abi Talib), Jibril and Mika’il came to him. With them was a third angel (Israfil). They carried him until they brought him to the spring of Zamzam, where they asked him to lie on his back and Jibril took him over from the other two. (Another version says:) “The roof of my house was opened and Jibril descended.”

He split the Prophet’s chest from his throat to the bottom of his belly. Then Jibril said to Mika’il: “Bring me a tast (a vessel, usually made of copper) of water from Zamzam so that I will purify his heart and expand his breast.” He took out his heart and washed it three times, removing from it what was wrong. Mika’il went back and forth to him with the vessel of water from Zamzam three times.

Then he brought him a golden vessel filled with wisdom and belief which he emptied into his chest. He filled his chest with hilm (intelligence, patience, good character), knowledge, certainty, and submission, then he closed it up. He sealed it between his shoulders with the seal of Prophethood.
