From Malik Ibn Sa'sa'ah  (RA)  from the Messenger of Allah  (SWT)  who said: "While I was lying down in al-Hatim' someone came to me and split open what is between this and this- he indicated the space from the top of his chest to below his navel- and he took out my heart. Then a golden cup filled with faith was brought to me. My heart was washed with Zamzam water' filled up (with faith) and put back in its place. A white beast' smaller than a mule' and bigger than a donkey' called al-Buraq' was brought to me. One stride of this creature covered a distance as far as it could see. I was mounted upon it. Jibril set off with me until we reached the first heaven' and he asked for it to be opened. He was asked: 'Who is there?' He said: 'Jibril'. The voice asked: 'Who is with you?' He said: 'Muhammad'. The voice asked: 'Has revelation been sent to him?' Jibril answered'

'Yes'. The voice said: 'Welcome to him, blessed is the one who has come'.- and the first heaven was opened. When I entered, there was Adam. Jibril said: 'This is your father Adam; greet him. I greeted him' and he returned the greeting, then he said: 'Welcome to the righteous son and the righteous Prophet (SM) '.

"Then Jibril took me up until we reached the second heaven' and he asked for it to be opened. He was asked: 'Who is there?' He said: 'Jibril'. The voice asked: 'Who is with you?' He said: 'Muhammad'. The voice asked: 'Has revelation been sent to him?' Jibril answered'. The voice said: ˜Welcome to him' blessed is the one who has come'.- and the sec­ ond heaven was opened. When I entered, there were Yahya and Isa' who were maternal cousins. Jibril said: 'These are Yahya and Isa; greet them'. I greeted  them and they returned the greeting, then they said: 'Welcome to the righteous brother and the righteous Prophet (SM) '.

"Then Jibril took me up until we reached the third heaven, and he asked for it to be opened. He was asked: 'Who is there?' He said: 'Jibril'. The voice asked: 'Who is with you?' He said: 'Muhammad'. The voice asked: 'Has revelation been sent to him?' Jibril answered, 'Yes'. The voice said: 'Welcome to him, blessed is the one who has come'.- and the third heaven was opened. When I entered, there was Yusuf. Jibril said: 'This is Yusuf, greet him'. I greeted him and he returned the greeting, then he said: 'Wela­ come to the righteous brother and the righteous Proa­phet'.

Then Jibril took me up until we reached the fourth heaven, and he asked for it to be opened. He was asked: 'Who is there?' He said: 'Jibril'. The voice asked: 'Who is with you?' He said: 'Muhammad'. The voice asked: 'Has revelation been sent to him?' Jibril answered, 'Yes'. The voice said: 'Welcome to him, blessed is the one who has come'.- and the fourth heaven was opened. When I entered, there was Idris. Jibril said: 'This is Idris; greet him'. I greeted him and he returned the greeting, then he said: 'Welcome to the righteous brother and the righteous Prophet (SM)'.

"Then Jibril took me up until we reached the fifth heaven, and he asked for it to be opened. He was asked: 'Who is there?' He said: 'Jibril'. The voice asked: 'Who is with you?' He said: 'Muhammad'. The voice asked: 'Has revelation been sent to him?' Jibril answered' 'Yes'. The voice said: 'Welcome to him, blessed is the one who has come'.- and the fifth heaven was opened. When I entered, there was Har- un. Jibril said: 'This is Harun; greet him'. I greeted him and he returned the greeting, then he said: 'Welcome to the righteous brother and the righteous Prophet (SM)'.
