@Hadithoftheday Burāq.
Prophet ﷺ was sleeping in his room & Jibrael A.S came & woke him up & led him to white beast named as “Buraq".
Buraq is described as being between a mule and a donkey. Its speed was such that its hooves would touch where its eyes gazed.
@Hadithoftheday Allah says in 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. Al-Israa 17: Verse 1)
@Hadithoftheday Prophet ﷺ mounted on buraq & began to fly towards Quds.

Buraq bore Prophet ﷺ on its back and in an instant transported him to Masjid al-Aqsa in Jerusalem, a journey that at the time took weeks overland. There, at Quds, the Prophet ﷺ led all the Prophets in prayer.
@Hadithoftheday When later questioned about it, Prophet ﷺ was able to recount the details of this journey, the places, buildings, & even the caravan that was on its way from Jerusalem with perfect accuracy; this not only verified his claims & discredited the Quraysh mockery.
@Hadithoftheday The Israa and Miraj refer to, two parts of a miraculous journey that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ took in one night from Makka to Jerusalem and then an ascension to the heavens.
@Hadithoftheday The Prophet ﷺ had just faced the Year of Sorrow, during which he ﷺ lost his beloved wife Khadijah R.A and his uncle Abu Talib, who was his protector and ally.
Having gone through so much grief & suffering, the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was given a truly beautiful and comforting gift
@Hadithoftheday When the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ reached al-Masjid al-Aqsa. Waiting inside were all 124,000 Prophets A.S.
Jibra’eel A.S led the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ to the front, and he ﷺ led them all in prayer in this blessed space.
@Hadithoftheday From al- aqsa to heavens : Allah then ascended the Prophet ﷺ from the Masjid aqsa through the skies where he saw many miraculous sights and numerous angels, he also met many of the past Prophets
Welcome,’ they all said to him, ‘O pious Prophet and pious brother!’ -bukhari
@Hadithoftheday It was here that Allah gave this ummah the gift of compulsory Salah.
Finally, the Prophet ﷺ was taken back down to Al-Aqsa and returned to Makkah
The entire journey had taken place in less than a night. & Abu Bakr R.A was the first one to believe in this journey of Prophet ﷺ
@Hadithoftheday Lessons:
This journey occurred at a time of extreme adversity during the Prophet ﷺ's life and despite all the hardships, he remained steadfast & patient
The circumstances around him were unbearable,his faith in Allah was never shaken; hence he was rewarded with wonderful journey
@Hadithoftheday Isra & Mi’raj reminds us that instead of complaining about our situation, we should question ourselves about what Allah expects from us when He gives us a situation we dislike. It is the sunnah (sequence or methodology) of Allah that before we experience victory, we will be tried

Mus'ab ibn Umair R.A was a child of a rich family.From his childhood,he lived in luxuries of life.
Especially as a handsome young man,he was lavished with special love & attention
In fact,he was unique in his luxurious tastes
He wore the most costly clothes and changed them twice a day. His shoes used to be the costliest available at that time.
He was also fond of wearing fragrance. A whiff of his fragrance was enough for the people to know that Mus'ab is passing by.
With all that luxurious lifestyle, he was very intelligent and had an elegant personality with keen mind and mastery in eloquent speech. Because of these qualities, he was moving about among the influential circles of chiefs of Quraysh at a young age.

@Hadithoftheday Umayyah ibn Khalaf.
When Umayyah heard about Bilal reverting to Islam, he tortured him & forced him to relinquish the Islam.
But filled with love of Muhammad ﷺ & Islam, Bilal remained steadfast despite extreme torture and kept saying “Ahad, Ahad.” (Allah is One, Allah is One)
@Hadithoftheday Umayyah ibn Khalaf was the head of Banu Jumah tribe of Quraysh.

Bilal R.A suffered terribly after accepting Islam.
Umayyah used all sorts of torture on Bilal R.A to make him change his mind. But Bilal R.A remained firm.
Umayyah ibn Khalaf was killed in the Battle of Badr.
@Hadithoftheday When the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ learned about his tribulation, he sent Abu Bakr R.A, who bought him from the oppressor and freed him. The freedom was Islam’s first gift to Bilal. Second Caliph Umar ibn Khattab R.A honored him by calling him as Sayyedna (our leader)

Sayyidna Ali R.A ruled for about 5 years.
Following the death of Uthman R.A, the senior companions insisted that Ali R.A to takke over as leader of the Islamic State. At the insistence of Az-Zubair & Talhah, he accepted the position as the 4th Right Guided Caliph
@Hadithoftheday Inaugural speech of Ali R.A as a caliph:

"I advise you O slaves of Allah to fear Allah, for god-fearing is the best advice Allah's slaves might give to one another. It is also the closest deed to His pleasure, and the most yielding of the best results in His sight. +
@Hadithoftheday No doubt, you are ordered to fear Allah and you have been created to be faithful.
So you should beware of Allah as the Almighty has warned you of Himself. Indeed, He has warned you of a strong violence if you do not comply to his order. Furthermore, you should fear Allah so much+

@Hadithoftheday Shawwal
Shawwal is the name of the 10th month of the Islamic Calender
Abu Ayyub Al-Ansari relates that Allah’s Messenger ﷺ says: Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan & then follows it with six days of fasting in the month of Shawwal,it will be as if he had fasted the year through.
@Hadithoftheday The month of Shawwal is a symbol of new life and renewal after a month of spiritual cleansing. It’s a truly transformative period for Muslims.
It is recommended for the Muslim to fast six days of Shawwaal, and in this there is great virtue and an immense reward.
@Hadithoftheday Shawal means Uplift/breakage, as before Islam, Arabs trusted that any marriage held in Shawal would dependably end up being unsuccessful.
Taken from “shala” which means "when the female camel gets pregnant"
This name was given as female camels used to get pregnant amid this time
