Volume 1, Parts 1.55.1
Muhammad Ibn `Umar informed us on the authority of Abu Bakr Ibn
‘Abd Allah Ibn Abi Sabrah and others [P. 143] of his preceptors; they
said:
The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, used to pray to Allah to show
him the paradise and the hell. On the night of Saturday, 27 Ramadan,
eighteen months before Hijrah, while the Apostle of Allah, may Allah
bless him, was sleeping alone in his house, Gabriel and Michael came to
him and said: Come to (the place for which) you have prayed to Allah.
Both of them took him between Maqam (Ibrahim) and Zamzam and
there a ladder was brought. It was very beautiful to look at. They
ascended to the heavens with him from sky to sky where he met the
Prophets, till he reached Sidrah, and he was shown the heaven and the
hell. The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bles*him, said: When I reached the
seventh heaven I did not hear (any sound) except the creaking of pens;
and five (daily) prayers were made obligatory. Gabriel (may peace be on
him) came down and offered prayers with the Apostle of Allah, may
Allah bless him, at their timings.
