Hadith of the Night Journey – Laylat al-Miraj

April 18, 2018

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“When God took me on the Night Journey, I passed a man hidden in the light of God’s throne. I asked if he was an angel, and was told no. I asked if he was a prophet, and was told no. So I asked who he was, and was told that he was a man whose tongue was always moist with the remembrance of God when he lived in this world, whose heart was always attached to the mosques, and who never said an unkind word to his parents.”

— Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), cited in Aisha al-Bauniyya’s (d. 1517) Kitab al-Muntakhab fi usul al-rutab fi `ilm al-tasawwuf, trans. Th. Emil Homerin. The Hadith appears in Ibn Abi al-Dunya.
