3 Graciously Beautiful Gifts of Me’raaj

Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahamtullahi Wa Barakatuhu.

On the occasion of Al Israa wal Me’raaj, i.e. the glorious Prophet’s Night Journey and Ascension, Allah subhanahu wa Ta’aala gifted His beloved Messenger and his followers, three beautifully gracious and graciously beautiful gifts, the likes of which no community on earth ever got! 

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was given three (things): he was given five prayers, he was given the concluding verses of Surah al-Baqarah, and the remission of serious sins for those among his Ummah who associate not anything with Allah” Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Hadith 329

All the teachings of Islam and all the Qur’anic verses were conveyed by Allah through Angel Jibreel to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) on Earth except for the three, which were revealed above the seven heavens. Subhanallaah!

1. Daily Five Time Prayers: 

That the command to establish five time prayers in a day was issued by calling the Messenger of Allah above the seven heavens speaks in glorious terms about the value attached to Salah.

There are volumes of hadeeths on the importance of prayer: Salah is a pillar of Islam. Whoever takes care of Salah, takes care of Islam. Whoever neglects Salah, neglects Islam. It is going to be the first thing to be questioned about in the Day of Judgement. Prayer is one thing that distinguishes a Muslim from a Kafir.

But the serious question is how many of us Muslims do value this treasure in our life by performing our 5 time prayers, daily??

2. The last Two Verses of Surah al Baqarah:

While you can find the Tafseer of these two verses here, I would like you to read the following hadeeth about these 2 verses:

‘Abd al-Rahman b. Yazid said: I asked Abu Mas’ud while he was making Tawaaf of the Ka’bah (about the recitation of some verses from the Qur’an). He said: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

“If anyone recited two verses from the last of Surah al-Baqarah at night, they will be sufficient for him.” Sunan Abu Dawood

This hadeeth means that if any Muslim who believes and acts upon these two verses during the day and recites them every night before he goes to sleep, will have sufficient means in his or her kitty that would be enough for his/her salvation, InshaaAllah.


Also, please find time to read this hadeeth which says that these two verses are part of the Two Lights that were exclusively given to Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

3. Remission of serious sins….:

The condition mentioned in this hadeeth is that a Muslim should not have associated anyone or anything with Allah all through his life.

That is, if one wants the remission of serious sins of his or her by Allah – and who in the world would not like it! – then he or she should live and die in this world without committing shirk, that is associating partners with Allah.

Dear brothers and sisters, Are not these Three Gifts of Me’raaj gracious, precious and benevolent?

Why not?

If only we value them in our life!

Baarakallaahu Feekum.

Sal-lal-laahu ‘Ala Muhammad, Sal-lal-laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam.
