THE DOT IN THE MIRROR
Hadhrat Anas Bin Maalik (radhiyallahu anhu) narrated that once
Jibraeel (alayhis salaam) came to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi
wasallam) with a beautiful mirror on which there was a black dot.
When Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) asked Jibraeel
(alayhis salaam) about the mirror, he explained: “The mirror is (i.e.
symbolizes) the Day of Jumuah. The dot on the mirror is the
moment on every Friday when duas are accepted. You and your
Ummah have been favoured over the people of bygone times with
On this Day there is such a moment in which every dua is
accepted. This Day resembles the Day of Mazeed.” Rasulullah
(sallallahu alayhi wasalam) with surprise said: “What is the Day of
Mazeed?” Jibraeel (alayhis salaam) said: “Allah Ta’ala has created
a valley in Jannat. Therein are dunes of musk. On every Jumuah,
thrones of Noor are arranged. The Ambiya (alayhimus salaam)
occupy these thrones.
There are also thrones of gold on which are seated the
Siddiqeen, Sulaha and Shuhada. On the dunes are seated the
People of Ghurf. (There is no explanation for the People of Ghurf
– Allah knows best). All in unison recite the praises of Allah
Ta’ala. Allah Ta’ala will command them to supplicate to Him (for
whatever their hearts desire).
All will supplicate for the Pleasure of Allah. Allah Ta’ala will say: “I am pleased with you. I have
granted you quarters in My Abode and I have ennobled you.”
Thereafter there will be a Manifestation of Allah Ta’ala.
By virtue of the ecstasy which the Divine Manifestation on this Day
will generate, nothing will be more beloved to them than the Day
of Jumuah (which in Jannat is known as the Day of Mazeed).”
