It is Not Necessary For Respect , That The Respected Person Should Be Present

The Respect Of Holy Prophet Muhammed(Peace and blessing Of Allah be upon him) – By Faqeeh-E-Millat Hazrat Allama Maulana Mufti Jalaluddeen Ahmed Amjadi (Rehmatullahi Ta’ala Alaih)

Some people say that because the Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam was present in front of the companions Radi Allahu anhum, therefore they respected him very much. If we had the opportunity to be present in front of the Messenger of Allah Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam , we would have respected him, but if we do not see him then whom shall we respect.

The answer to this question is that it is not always true that the person being respected should always be present in front of the respecter. It is in Bukhari and Muslim Sharif that Hazrat Abu Ayyub Ansari Radiallahu Taala Anhu states that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam)has said:

When ever you go to the lavatory (toilet) then never turn your face or your back toward the Kaba

Hazrat Mullah Ali Qari Rahmatullahi Taala has written:

To avoid facing the Qiblah or to refrain from turning your backs towards it shows its importance and its respect (Mirqat)

See! The person relieving himself in the toilet, cannot see the Kaba in front of him, still he has been ordered not to face the Kaba because of its respect. Not to see the Holy Kaba and yet not to respect the Kaba is Haraam according Hazrat Imam Abu Hanifa Rahmatullahi Taala alaihi! (Ashatul-Lamaat)

It is in Bukhari and Muslim Sharif that Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Taala Anhu states that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam)has said:

When you pray Namaaz, you should not spit in front

Hazrat Mullah Ali Qari Rahmatullahi Taala has concluded:

The prohibition of spitting towards the Qiblah was to indicate and to reveal the respect towards the Kaba (Mirqat)

It is understood from this Hadith, that if a person is living thousands of miles away from the holy Kaba, he is nevertheless not allowed to spit towards the Qiblah/Kaba

The companion of the Prophet Sallalaho alaihi wasallam, Hazrat Saib bin Khallah Radiallahu Taala Anhu has stated:

A person was leading Salaah to a group of Muslims, he spat toward the Qiblah and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) saw him. When they finished their Salaah, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) informed the group of Muslims not pray Salaah behind him. The same person wanted to lead the Salaah again but the people prevented him to do so, and told him what the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam)had said to them concerning him. He went to the Messenger Sallalaho alaihi wasallam and asked about it. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam)replied, Yes it was me who told them not to pray Salaah behind you.

Hazrat Saib Radi Allahu anhu (narrator of this Hadith) then writes, I think he (The Prophet ) then said to the person You have disturbed me and Allah. (Mishkat  p71)

Therefore, from these Hadith we realise that the thing, which is respected, does not have to be present in front of our eyes. We also get to perceive and to understand that the person who does not respect the Holy and the blessed Kaba cannot be an Imam. Thus the person who does not respect the Kaba of the Kaba, Huzur Sayyid-e-Alam Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam , and denies him, then he is even more unworthy to lead the Prayers, as he has disturbed and distressed the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam)without doubt!

Allah Taala says in the divine Quraan: Surely those who annoy Allah and His messenger- Allah has cursed them in this world as well s in the Hereafter, and He has kept prepared for them a humiliating torment – (S33/V57)

The Divine Vision » Me’raj-un-Nabi SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam

Shab E Mi'raj Mubarak
All Praise is due to Allah Azzawajal, Salutations upon His most Perfect, unique, and cream of creations, the Intercessor of the Sinners, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam, upon his family, upon his companions and the righteous servants till Doomsday.


O Allah, all praise be to You; You are undoubtedly carefree;
Once Moses insisted to see you; here You became anxious to see.

Some people have misunderstood the reality of the Me’raaj of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) due to their lack of knowledge and research. Their ignorance in this field caused more confusion in their hearts because they failed to understand the unique relation between ALLAH and His Beloved Habeeb (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him). How true is the comment of Sayyidul-Makashifeen Sheikh-e-Akbar Muhiyyudeen Ibne Arabi (Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho) who said that Me’raaj is a secret in a secret. One has to have sound knowledge of the Qudrat of ALLAH and the Station and Status of His August Rasool (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) before commenting on any matter pertaining to them. Due to the lack of this knowledge some people have wrongfully said that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) did not see ALLAH with his naked eye and also did not proceed to the Divine Arsh on the night of Me’raaj. They say that both these things are impossible for any human being to achieve.

Indeed the illustrious Ulama and distinguished Imams of Islam have in their authentic books expressed in great details on this subject. All these are based on the Ahadith Shareef. The narrators and presenters are all trustworthy Scholars of Deen. This matter is not something that entertains ones personal opinion. It depends solely on the authenticity of solid proof. Hence, confirmation deplores contradiction. Ignorance does not necessarily reject its reality. If one rejects it, one is in fact a liar and a contradictor of the Deen.

Here is proof from Qur’an al Kareem, Ahadith an-Nabawi (Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam), Sayings of the Noble Sahab and from the writings of great and authentic scholars of Islam that the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wa Sallam did see ALLAH with his naked eyes and he also did proceed to the Divine Arsh on the night of Me’raj.
