<BGSOUND src="">pPLACE OF STARTING  JOURNEY
                 OF MERAJ.
                       OR
  ( house of syeda um-e-hanni)..

1. In masjid ul haram makkah, if you enter in  through bab-e-abdul aziz which is  the gate no 1 of  the holy mosque you will find the  pillar where the BURAQ- (horse which carried prophet muhammad sallalla ho allihiwasalam to masjid-e aqsa -al qudas, from masjid ul haram makkah in a flash of eye. its speed was just like light.In arabic BURQ means light.)-was fastened and the  journey of  meraj was started.

meraj started

2. Some school of thoughts say that prophet Muhammad sallalla ho allihi wasalam was sleeping in mutaf near kabbah and some say he sallalla ho allihi wasalam was taking rest in  the house oh his cousin syeda um-e-hanni when  holy angle Jibrael came to take him to skies for MARAJ.
3.if you enter in masjid ul haram through bab-e-abdul aziz ,the gate number 1 of holy masjid-ul-Haram, you will find yourself on the  plateform of this gate where on the both sides wide stairs are available for going to upper level. you keep walking straight .Now  you will find few steps to down to come to big hall of masjid-ul- Haram. you must turn yourself to your left just entering to the hall without forwading even a single step.NOW the wall of masjid hall will be at youe left hand .keep walking forward .you will be with wall at your laft and praying area at your right. When you walk straight, you will find big rounded marbled pillar at your right one after another. you count it . At 5th pillar you will see a way going to your right towards mutaf and holy kabba. And a zam zam water room at your left. Now do not move forward but take right turn on the way going to mutaf and holy kabba.When you will get right turn zam zam water drinking room will be exactly at your back. Now go forward. After few feet walk,you will find a little slope or ramp. Come to the slope or ramp and STOP HERE . YOU WILL FIND THREE PILLARS ON YOUR LEFT.THE MIDDLE ONE IS THE PILLAR WHERE BURAQ HAD BEEN FASTENED AND AND HOLY PROPHET STARTED JOURNEY OF MERAJ .
This pillar is thin as compared to all other pillars of masjid-ul-haram and it is not made of marble. it is mosaic-ed pillar. It is not very decorated as other pillars are. Holy kabba looks from here. It is said it was the house of prophets' cousin syeda um-me-Hani (R.A)

MIDDLE PILLAR IS MERAJ STARTING PLACE


Bab-e-abdul aziz. just entering in you  find  place of embarking meraj.
Bab-e-umme hani is on the left.

3. Originally this house was out of  haram but in 147 hijra it came into haram boundaries due to its' extension .

4. Till few years before the  last gate of masjid-ul-haram was known as babe-um-e-hanni and a sign plate showing bab-e-um-hanni was  fixed over its' head but now it is removed and only gate no 95 is written there. Actually it is the last gate of haram and its' number is 95 whereas bab-e-Abdual Aziz is the first gate of haram. since the haram is almost in rounded shape, these two gates have come just adjacent to each other. Babe-e-abdual Aziz is a big gate where as bab-e-um-e-hanni (gate no 95) is small one.

5.  since this topic relates to the historic event of meraj, it is necessary  to explain it briefly so that the academic knowledge of this holy trip of prophet Muhammad sallallaho allihiwasalam might be refreshed. Meraj journey may be divided in to two parts. firstly prophet sallalla ho allihi wasalam travelled by buraq from masjid ul Haram in makkah to masjid-ul-Aqsa in Alqudas (Bait-ul Muqadas). Buraq ran so fast  that in  a flash of eye it covered this long distance. In makkah the people knew masjid-e Aqsa as a mosque of long distance. Actually Aqsa means mosque  situated at  far distance. It is said that the each stride of buraq stretched as far as the eye could see .Reaching masjid-ul-aqsa prophet sallalla ho allihi wasalam led the prayer of all the past prophets  who were waiting  for the arrival of  the  last prophet sallalla ho allihiwasalam.All the past prophets were gathered here with the special permission of Al mighty Allah. Syedna gibrael called AZAN  AND AQAMAT and requested prophet Sallallaho allihi wasalam to lead special prayer of all Allahs' prophets.



In  Majid-e-Aqsa, it is called Ba bul Buraq. Actually it is the door or place where

the Buraq was fastened at meraj night after arrival of Prophet Muhammad salla ho

Alli hi wasalam at Masjie Aqsa.

I
          In second step a ladder of light was fixed to take prophet sallalla ho allihiwasalam to the skies. He sallalla ho allihiwasalam embarked  to skies from masjid-e-aqsa and this journey is called MERAJ.

 


his is the rock where the ladder of light was fixed

which carried to prophet of Allah towards skies in
Maraj night. it is in masjid-e-Aqsa, AlQuads Alshareef.
