Prophet’s Night Journey & Heavenly Ascent
Sayyid Muhammad ibn Alawi al-Maliki, Gibril Fouad Haddad
Praise be to Allah Who chose His praiseworthy servant Muhammad s.a.w. for the Message, distinguished him with the night journey on the lightning-mount Buraq, and caused him to ascend the ladders of perfection to the high heavens to show him of the greatest signs of his Lord. He raised him until he reached the Lote-Tree of the Farthest Boundary where ends the science of every Messenger-Prophet and every Angel Brought Near, where lies the Garden of Retreat, to the point that he heard the sound of the pens that write what has befallen and what is to befall.
