Moreover, it should be also in mind that since the nature, creation and birth of Hazrat Esa Alaihis-Salaam was materialized by the angelic blend and spiritual combination, and in his body was the dominance of spiritual element, therefore, their lifting up on heavens was likely and easy as Apports. Our Laudable overlord Hazrat Ahmed Mukhtaar Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam experienced Mi'raaj (Ascension) twice, once in the Realm of Anfus and other in the Realm of Afaaq which have been mentioned in the Noble Quran, once in the Surah Al-Isra (17) and once in Surah An-Najm (53) and in the Ahadees concerning the Incident of Mi'raaj, it has been mentioned that his blessed bosom was opened wide before Mi'raaj and it was washed with the Water of Life of Condescension (with complaisance) and his all Subtleties were made alive and bright with the Noor of the Hazoor of the Essence. Thenceforth, his Pure body was granted the Kaamil Subtleness and was raised up to the Realm of Heavens through the Invisible Electricity of Burraaq and the Spiritual Atomic Energy of the Rafraf. A brief account of Mi'raaj has been narrated in the Surah Al-Isra (17) in these words:
Glorified be He Who carried His servant () by night from the Inviolable Place of Worship to the Far Distant Place of Worship the neighborhood whereof We have blessed, that We might show him () of Our tokens! He, only He, is the Nearer, the Seer (17:1)
Mi'raaj has been mentioned, rather with more detail, in the Surah An-Najm in the Holy Quran where this has been said: and verily he saw Him, yet another time (53:13). That is, he saw Him, that is, Allah Almighty yet another time.
Thus, the Holy Prophet Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam experienced two very important and significant Mi'raaj, once in the Realm of Anfus and once in the Realm of Afaaq and he was honored the Didaar of Allah Almighty twice otherwise Allah Almighty had been conferring upon him the different Supreme Maratib and the many Superior Achievements of the Seal of Messengerhood from his cradle till his age up to forty years and many a times his bosom and chest was opened and it was washed to clear it against any kind of irrelevant stuff and made it Clean and Pure and it was made Subtle and Illuminated with frequented Noor of Hazoor and he had been prepared for bearing the enormous weight of the Wahi prior to revealing Prophethood to him.
An incident proves on this thing that when he, once, was rearing goats on a mount along with son of Hazrat Haleema Radhi-ya-Allahu Ta-aala Anha that he was lifted up to the peak of the mount by some Angels in order to 'open' his blessed chest. Therefore, the son of Hazrat Haleema Radhi-ya-Allahu Ta-aala Anha rushed to his mother gasping with fear and told her that 'some person covered in white raiment have lifted Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam up to the peak of the mountain have opened his bosom after laying him there'. Hearing this, she rushed there running and found him safe and sound rearing the goats in normal condition and when she asked him about that incident, he told her everything.
Hence, he had to pass through the preliminary stages and Inwardly levels of Wilayat and Prophecy for forty years and he been bearing this with remarkable silence, patience and tolerance for forty years. Regrets are on the wisdom of these blind verbal dehydrated Ulema who say that 'the Overlord of Worlds Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam had not information concerning his appointment as Prophet prior to the actual announcement thereof and he was also an uninformed person like us and all at once, he was given the responsibility of Prophethood; and he was just a means of conveying the orders of Wahi to us and, Allah forgive, there is no difference in him and us or he is like our elder brother'.
Upon his return from Mi'raaj (Ascension), your common and proper person amongst his Companions Radhi-ya-Allahu Ta-aala Anhum asked him 'have you come after seeing Allah Almgighty?' His reply for the common was 'naught is as His likeness' (42:11). That is, the common people wanted to know in which appearance had he seen Allah Almighty and he replied that there is nothing in the world as His likeness and He is free of every kind of similitude and likeness. Therefore, this can be said that 'this or that was the form of Allah Almighty'. However, he graciously addressed to the special ones 'I have been colored with the color of the Noor of the Hazoor of Didaar and Ihave brought the reflection of this Primordial Noor inside my bosom'. Thus he told them that 'that person, who saw me (in Inward), it is as if he saw Haq' 'thus, Satan cannot take my appearance'.
