Encounters during the Mi'raj: The Prophet (s.a.w.) in the 4th Heaven
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
During the night of the Mi’raj, the Prophet (s.a.w.) and Jibril (a.s.) ascended to the Fourth Heaven. Jibril (a.s.) asked for the gate to be opened. Someone asked, “Who is this?”
“Who is with you?”
“Has he been Sent for?”
“Welcome to him, from his family! May Allah Grant him long life, a brother of ours and a Deputy of Allah, and what excellent brother and deputy! What an excellent visit is this!” The gate was opened. When they came in, they saw Idris (a.s.). Allah (s.w.t.) Exalted him with a lofty place. The Prophet (s.a.w.) greeted him and he returned his greeting and said, “Welcome to the righteous brother and the righteous prophet!” Then he invoked for goodness on his behalf.
