The Meezan,Siraat,Hauz-e-kausar,Maqam-e-Mahmoud & Liwa ul Hamd

THE MIZAAN

    Mizaan is Haq (truth).
     
    It is a scale that would be used to weigh a person’s good and bad deeds.
     
    The side on which your good deeds are, if it weighs more than the bad deeds, then it will rise in opposite to the scale of the world.

THE SIRAAT

    Siraat is also Haq (truth).
     
    This is an extremely narrow bridge. It is the only pathway to Jannat (Paradise). Siraat is above Jahannam (Hell).
     
    It is thinner than a hair and sharper than a sword.
     
    It will take a journey of 50 000 years to cross and everyone will have to walk across it.
     
    Kaafirs will not be able to walk across it and will fall into Dozakh (Hell).
     
    Muslims will be able to go across it. Some will go across it as fast as lighting, some like a gust of wind, and some like the speed of a fast horse. Some will go across it very slowly. Some will struggle, shake, tremble, crawl, etc. Depending upon their deeds, they will go across. If you have good deeds, you will cross quickly.
     
    On the night of Me’raj, before Huzoor (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) mounted the Buraaq, he thought of his Ummat (followers) and of how they were going to cross the Pul Siraat. At that time, Allah Ta’ala gave glad tidings to our beloved Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), “O Beloved, do not worry about your followers. I will cross them so quickly that they won’t know”. On the night of Meeraj, at a place called “Sidratul Muntaha” (The Heavenly Tree), beyond which even Hazrat Jibraeel (alaihis salaam) could not advance, Hazrat Jibraeel (alaihis salaam) requested the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) to ask Allah Ta’ala permission for him to spread his wings on Pul Siraat so that when the Ummat is going to cross it, they would be able to walk on his wings and enter Jannat.

THE HAUZ-E-KAUSAR

    Hauz-e-Kausar is a Pond that has been given to Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) as a gift. This is Haq (truth).
     
    Its length is the distance of one month’s journey. Its breadth is the same.
     
    Its banks (edges) are made from gold and they have arches made from pearls.
     
    Its base is made from musk.
     
    The water is whiter than milk, sweeter than honey and scented better than musk.
     
    Whosoever drinks its water once will never become thirsty again.
     
    The utensils for drinking water from Hauz-e-Kausar are even more than the number of stars in the sky.
     
    Two streams, one of gold and the other of silver, flow down from Paradise into the Pond.

THE MAQAAM-E-MAHMOOD

    Allah Ta’ala will give His beloved, Hazrat Muhammad Mustapha (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) Maqaam-e-Mahmood (The Place of Praise).
     
    This is where the people from before and after him will praise Nabi Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).

THE LIWA’UL HAMD

    Liwa�ul Hamd is a Flag which will be given to our Nabi Hazrat Muhammad Mustapha (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) on the Day of Qiyamat.
     
    All Muslims from the time of Hazrat Adam (alaihis salaam) until Qiyaamat will be gathered under this flag.
