Ascended To The Sky Below Heaven

1. Ibn 'Abbas, may Allah be pleased with them, reported: Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him), while narrating his Night Journey observed: Moses (peace be upon him) was a man of high stature as if he was of the people of the Shanu'ah (tribe), and Jesus was a well-built person having curly hair. He also mentioned Malik, the Guardian of Hell, and Al-Dajjal (the Beast). 2. Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: When I was taken for the Night Journey I met Moses (peace be upon him). The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) gave his description thus: He was a man of an erect stature with straight (the narrator is doubtful regarding the word "straight") hair on his head as if he was one of the men of the Shanu'a; and I met Jesus and the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) described him as one having a medium stature and a red complexion as if he had (just) come out of the bath. He observed: I saw Abraham (peace be upon him) and amongst his children I have the greatest resemblance with him. He said: There were brought to me two vessels. In one of them was milk and in the other one there was wine. And it was said to me: Select any one you like. So I selected the vessel containing milk and drank it. He (the angel) said: You have been guided on the natural disposition or you have attained the natural disposition.Had you selected wine, your Ummah would have been misled 3. 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud's Hadith, may Allah be pleased with him. Al-Shaibani reported: I asked Zirr bin Hubaish about the words of Allah (the Mighty and the Great): So he was (at a distance) of two bows or nearer He said: Ibn Mas'ud informed me that, verily Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) saw Gabriel (peace be upon him) and he had six hundred wings 4. Abu Musa, may Allah be pleased with him, reported: Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) was standing amongst us and he told us five things. He said: Verily the Exalted and Mighty Allah does not sleep, and it does not befit Him to sleep. He lowers the Scale and lifts it. The deeds in the night are taken up to Him before the deeds of the day, and the deeds of the day before the deeds of the night. His veil is the light. In the hadith narrated by Abu Bakr (instead of the word "light") it is fire. If he withdraws it (the veil), the splendor of His countenance would consume His creation so far as His sight reaches 5. Abu Musa, may Allah be pleased with him, reported: The Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: There would be two gardens (in Paradise) the vessels and contents of which would be of silver, and two gardens whose vessels and contents would be of gold. The only thing hindering the people from looking at their Lord will be the mantle of Grandeur over His face in the Garden of Eden
