Hadrat Jibrael Alaihis Salam & The Shining Star


The Holy Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam once asked Hadrat Jibrael Alaihis Salam,

“O Jibrael ! How old are you?”

Jibrael al-Ameen Alaihis Salam replied,

“O Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, I don’t know how old I am, but I do know that in the Fourth Covering (حجاب), I saw a star shine once every 70,000 years, and I saw this 72,000 times.”

The Holy Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam then said,

و عزة ربي انا ذالك الكوكب

“By the honour of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala! I was that star.” [Tafseer Rooh al-Bayaan, Vol. 1, Page 974]

 

Lesson: The Noor of our Beloved Prophet was created before anything else. He came before angels, humans, the Earth, and whatever else lies within all of creation.
