The Beautiful Moon


As Salaamu Alaykum Sayyidi Mawlana, Hajjah, Family and eShaykh Staff,

Nearly two weeks ago, after Fajr Prayer, I was opening the curtains at sunrise when I noticed the Moon, and it was as if the Moon was beckoning to me. I put on my glasses and looked at the Moon, seemed quite close, and I saw the name Muhammad (pbuh), on the Moon.

I woke my husband up and showed him, but he did not quite agree with me, nevertheless, he thanked me for waking him up to show him. I took some pictures, but they showed a clear Moon.


wa `alaykum salam,

That was a tajalli shown to you only and shows you the true nature of the moon:

`Ali al-Qari said in his Sharh al-Shifa (1:505) in commenting upon the Prophet’s title:

{as a Lamp spreading Light} (33: 46):

Muhammad… is a tremendous light and the source of all lights, he is also a book that gathers up and makes clear all the secrets… sirajan muniran means a luminous sun, because of His saying:

بَارَكَ الَّذِي جَعَلَ فِي السَّمَاء بُرُوجًا وَجَعَلَ فِيهَا سِرَاجًا وَقَمَرًا مُّنِيرًا

{He hath placed therein a great lamp and a moon giving light} (25:61).

this is a powerful manifestation and blessing, treasure it, and reflect upon it.
