Recommended Posts

Asalam u Alaikum , hope all are doing well. I was with my little curious brother , that suddenly he asked me this question out of nowhere, that our Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) traveled the seven skies on Buraq and at the point of the lotus tree Hazrat Jibrael  stopped saying that I can’t go any further as his wings would burn, and  that Prophet were the only creature to go beyond that point. So where was Buraq?And how Prophet traveled further? I know there is not every detail available for this beautiful event but if any information regarding this question will be helpful. 

Wasalam

I heard that story too but it may not be true. I think Sunnis believe that story. I am not sure.

However there is a cave which people can visit where this supposed mysterious creature (Buraq) was kept. It still has that metal ring attached to the stone wall where it was kept tied up with a rope.

It has been narrated from 'Ali ibn Ibrahim al‑Qummi that Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al‑Sadiq had said:
 
"Jibra'il, Mika'il and Israfil brought Buraq  to the Prophet (S). One of these (three) held the reigns of Buraq, while the other one held on the saddle and the third one held on to the clothing of the Prophet (S) while he was ascending it. When the Prophet (S) mounted onto the Buraq, its entire body started to tremble. Jibra'il pointed with his hand towards Buraq and told him, `O' Buraq! Keep calm! Before the Noble Prophet (S) ‑ no other Prophet has ever ridden you and after him too no one like him will ever ride upon you again."
 
Buraq became tranquil and took the Prophet (S)  towards the heavens. Jibra'il accompanied the Prophet and pointed out the signs of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in the heavens and the Earth."

The Prophet commenced his grand journey from the house of Umme Hani (sister of the Commander of the Faithful) and mounted on Buraq proceeded to Baytul Maqdis, situated in Jerusalem, which is also called Masjidul Aqsa. After a very short time he dismounted there and visited different parts of the mosque as well as Bethlehem which is the birth place of 'Isa and also saw various other places associated with different Prophets. At some of these places he also performed two rak'ats of prayers.

Thereafter he commenced the second part of his journey and proceeded from that place to the skies. He then observed the stars and the system of the world and conversed with the souls of the previous Prophets and also with the angels of the heavens. He saw the centres of blessing and torture (Paradise and Hell) and also saw the places of the dwellers of Hell and Paradise1 from close quarters, and a consequently became fully aware of the secrets of creation, the extent of the Universe and the signs of the Omnipotent Allah.

Then he continued his journey and reached 'Sidratul-Muntaha'2 and found it fully covered with splendour, magnificence and grandeur. At this time his journey came to an end he returned through the way he had gone.

The complete details about the journey of the Prophet Muhamamd saww as quoted in the hadith can be seen at the given links above.

Sister, have you not read  the hadith mentioned at the links?

Also the following verses describe about Meraj:

Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in the Noble Qur'an says:
 

أَفَتُمَارُونَهُ عَلَىٰ مَا يَرَىٰ {12} وَلَقَدْ رَآهُ نَزْلَةً أُخْرَىٰ {13} عِنْدَ سِدْرَةِ الْمُنْتَهَىٰ {14} عِنْدَهَا جَنَّةُ الْمَأْوَىٰ {15} إِذْ يَغْشَى السِّدْرَةَ مَا يَغْشَىٰ {16} مَا زَاغَ الْبَصَرُ وَمَا طَغَىٰ {17} لَقَدْ رَأَىٰ مِنْ آيَاتِ رَبِّهِ الْكُبْرَىٰ {18}

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 "By the declining star. Your companion is not in error nor has he gone astray. He does not speak out of his own desire. It is a revelation which has been revealed to him and taught to him by the Great Mighty One, the Strong One who appeared on the uppermost horizon. He then came nearer and nearer, until he was as close to Him as the distance of two bows, or even less. He revealed to Allah's servant whatever He wanted. His (Muhammad's) heart did not lie to him about what his eyes had seen. Will you then argue with him about what he saw? He certainly saw Him during his other ascent to the Lote‑tree near which is Paradise. When the tree was covered with a covering, (Muhammad's) eyes did not deceive him, nor did they lead him to falsehood. He certainly saw the greatest (signs) of the existence of his Lord. " 1

Salam Prophet (pbu) did his journey on Earth with Buraq but his ascending to sky was with Jibrael (عليه السلام) or on his wing 

The majority of terminologists believe Buraq, which is used for male and female, derived from the term "Baraq" (Arabic: بَرَق) meaning something with extreme speed or something magnificently shining. There is no evidence proving that this term has been ever used before the emergence of Islam. Probably it was said by Prophet Muhammad (s) for the first time and then later it has been used in Arabic and Persian literature commonly. According to Edgard Blochet's theory it is assumed the term Buraq is derived from the ancient Persian term "Barag" (Persian: بارَگ) meaning horse, which is not accepted. Also there is no sign that this term was transmitted into Arabic language from another one.

Based on the narrations related to the nightly journey of Prophet Muhammad (s), Buraq was the conveyance of Prophet (s) from Mecca to al-Aqsa mosque and from there to the skies by means of Mi'raj (ladder, "Sulm" is also stated in narrations) or on the wings of Gabriel. Most of these narrations which narrated from Prophet Muhammad (s) himself stated that he descended from Buraq in Bayt al-Maqdis and said prayers in the mosque, then he ascended to the skies alongside Gabriel.

The 5th Imam (عليه السلام) narrates that Al Aqsa is a heavenly mosque, which the Prophet went to directly from Masjidul Haram.
