THE DOT IN THE MIRROR

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

Jumuah.

 

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).”
