Allah’s Shin and Muhammad’s Visit to Jerusalem

Allah’s shin and Muhammad’s visit to Jerusalem.

Hatun tries to talk to the Dawah Team about Allah’s shin, which will be revealed to the believers on Judgement Day.

Then the conversation moves to Muhammad’s night journey to Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem:

Glory to (Allah) Who did take His Servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the Farthest Mosque (Masjid al-Aqsa), whose precincts We did bless,- in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who heareth and seeth (all things). S. 17:1

The Al Aqsa mosque wasn’t built until 709AD – 77 years after Muhammad died. Apologies for the poor picture quality on this video.

  1. Question for Christians and Jews.
    (i) Why is John the Baptist alone just the only person who can afford to hear the Father’s voice when baptizing Jesus at Jordan river, which is supposed to be the most defining moment for his Sonship?
    (ii) How can the Jews and Aaron just be easily convinced by Moses’ sole testimony that he met the talking angel in the burning bush?
    (iii) How could just Isaiah alone see a group of six flying Seraphim above the Temple, but not any other Jews and the Levite Priests around Jerusalem?

    The evidence of Isra Miraj in Islam is mentioned by Hadith and Tafsir:
    (i) Description of Al Aqsa
    (ii) Description of the missing camel.

    Bukhari Vol. 5, Book 58, Hadith 226
    Narrated Jabir bin `Abdullah: That he heard Allah’s Messenger saying, When the people of Quraish did not believe me (i.e. the story of my Night Journey), I stood up in Al-Hijr and Allah displayed Jerusalem in front of me, and I began describing it to them while I was looking at it.
    Ibn Kathir, Tafsir, pp.5-10; Al-Tabari, Tafsir. pp.3-16.
    They said, Can you describe the sanctuary to us’ Among them were some who had travelled to that land and seen the sanctuary, so the Messenger of Allah said, I started to describe it, until I reached a point where I was not sure about some of the details, but then the sanctuary was brought close and placed near the house of `Uqayl – or `Iqal – so I could look at it and describe the details. I could not remember those description. The people said, As for the description, by Allah he has got it right. This was recorded by An-Nasa’i and Al-Bayhaqi.

    Ibn Ishaq, Bayhaqi, pp.62-64.
    And the proof of this is that I passed by the caravan of such-and-such a tribe in such-and-such a valley, and the sound of (al-buraq) startled them and so one of their camels ran away. I led them to it, being then on my way to al-Sham. Then I continued on until I reached Dajanan, where I passed a caravan of such-and-such tribe. I found the people asleep. They had a vessel with water in it that they had covered it with something. I took off the cover and drank the water and replaced its cover. And the proof of this is that their caravan is now making its way down from the pass at al-Tanim al-Bayda. Leading it is an ash-coloured camel on which are two sacks, one of which is black, the other black and white. On hearing this, people hurried to the pass. The first camel, which was as he described to them, was insufficient proof for them, so they asked about the vessel and the camel, and those in the caravan did tell them just as the Prophet had recounted.

  2. I think the sign of Allah’s Shin makes us Moslems to be the embodiment of 24 seated Elders who prostate twice when praying to the ineffable God on the throne, per Rev 4:10 and Rev 11:16.

    On other hand, during the Second Resurrection, nobody will prostrate to God. They all will be just standing to be judged according to their works.
    Rev 4
    10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
    Rev 11
    16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, 17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

  3. So how did Mohammed see something decades before it was built and how could people verify the details years before it was built to verify the trip? I suspect that Mohammed had probably been to Jerusalem as a young man traveling with a caravan. He might have seen the ground upon which the Al Aqsa would be built in the future. Maybe there was a building there facing Petra.
