REALITY

Events of Rajab

Of all the known events in Islamic history that occurred in Rajab, the night journey of our Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam is most notable.

According to some narrations, this journey took place three years prior to migration to Madinah Munawwarah. On this journey Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam was was taken from Masjidul Haraam in Makkah to Baytul Maqdis on the Buraaq, a designated horse sent by Allah Ta'aala. Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam was accompanied by Jibraeel Alayhis Salaam during the journey and while at Masjidul Aqsa, lead all the previous Ambiya in Salaah.


From Baytul Maqdis Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam was taken to the skies, where he met other Prophets. They unanimously acknowledged and affirmed the finality of his Prophethood. It was on this journey that the five daily Salaah were made obligatory on the followers of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam. These Salaah were initially fifty, after which they were reduced to five through the intercession of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam to Allah Ta'aala.

While en route to the seven heavens and upon returning therefrom, Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam met a particular group of travellers. Due to his travelling above the surface of the ground, he even pointed out a lost camel of this caravan. This was evidence of having undertaken the journey, when the proclamation was made the next morning and this group of travellers acknowledged receiving help in finding their camel.

While everyone else refuted the claims of the night journey, only Sayyiduna Abu Bakr accepted it without question. At this juncture, he was conferred the title of "As-Siddeeq" meaning The Truthful One.

Animals in the Quran and Hadith

Termites

Allah says: When we decreed death for him, it was only the termites that made them aware of his death by eating his staff. When he fell, it became evident to the jinn that if they had knowledge of the unseen, they would not have remained in a humiliating punishment. (Surah Saba, verse 14)

The construction of Baitul Muqaddas was started by Daawood Alaihis and completed during the time of Sulaimaan Alaihis Salaam. The jinn were tasked with the building but they proved to be very rebellious. Hence, Sulaimaan 
Alaihis Salaam had to supervise them while they worked. If he left them unsupervised they would stop working.

When the hour of his demise was close, he went into the mihraab area, leaned on his staff and continued his worship as was his habit. The mihraab area was enclosed with glass so he could be seen from the outside. Even after he passed away, his body remained standing with the support of his staff. The jinn assumed that he was still alive and they continued working. This continued for a full year during which time the construction process reached completion. Thereafter, Allah caused termites to start eating at the staff.  When it had become quite weak, Sulaimaan 
Alaihis Salaam fell to the ground. It was only then the jinn realised that Sulaimaan Alaihis Salaam had passed away long before. Regretful that they had toiled so long, they decided to find out when exactly he had passed away. So the jinns took a staff and allowed the termites to begin eating it. By measuring how much they had eaten in one day, they estimated that he had passed away one year earlier.
