All Praise is due to Allah, Salutations upon His most Perfect, unique, and cream of creations, the Intercessor of the Sinners, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam), upon his family, upon his companions and the righteous servants till Doomsday. Some people have misunderstood the reality of the Me'raj of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) 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 (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam). How true is the comment of Sayyid al-Makashifeen Shaykh al-Akbar Muhiyyudeen Ibn Arabi (Alayhir Rahmah) who said that Me'raj 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 (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) before commenting on any matter pertaining to them. Due to the lack of this knowledge some people have wrongfully said that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did not see Allah with his naked eye and also did not proceed to the Divine Arsh on the night of Me'raj. 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 it in great detail. All these are based on the Ahadith al-Mubarakah. 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 are the proofs from Qur'an al-Kareem, Ahadith an-Nabawi (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam), Sayings of the Noble Sahaba and from the writings of great and authentic scholars of Islam that the Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did see ALLAH Almighty with his naked eyes and he also did proceed to the Divine Arsh on the night of Me'raj. The Holy Qur'an says: سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَى بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلا مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الأقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِنْ آيَاتِنَا إِنَّه هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ Purity is to Him Who took His bondman in a part of the night from the Sacred Mosque to the Aqsa Mosque around which We have placed blessings, in order that We may show him Our great signs; indeed he is the listener, the beholder. [Al Isra:1] Imam al-Ajal Abu Ja'far Tabari reported in his commentary Jami' al-Bayan: أسرى بروحه دون جسده، لأن ذلك لو كان كذلك لم يكن في ذلك ما يوجب أن يكون ذلك دليلا على نبوّته، ولا حجة له على رسالته، ولا كان الذين أنكروا حقيقة ذلك من أهل الشرك، وكانوا يدفعون به عن صدقه فيه، إذ لم يكن منكرا عندهم، ولا عند أحد من ذوي الفطرة الصحيحة من بني آدم أن يرى الرائي منهم في المنام ما على مسيرة سنة، فكيف ما هو على مسيرة…
