The Third Sharh’us-Sadr: A Preparation for Miraj
On the night of Isra and Miraj—the Night Journey and Ascent to Heaven—before the Noble Prophet’s -upon him blessings and peace- meeting with the Almighty, for the third time, his pure heart was prepared to receive divine manifestations and his chest filled with faith and wisdom.
The Messenger of Allah -upon him blessings and peace- recalls the event as follows:
“I was lying down between sleep and wakefulness at Hatim, near the Kaabah. Then someone came and cleaved my chest from there to here (pointing from his throat to his abdomen while saying this) and removed my heart. A golden container was then brought, filled with faith and wisdom. My heart was washed with Zamzam water and filled with faith and wisdom, before being returned to its place.” (Bukhari, Bad’ul-Khalq 6; Anbiya 22, 43; Muslim, Iman 264)
