The true Muslim seeks to attain this high status by keeping company with righteous people who will teach one another about truth, patience, and constancy (sabr) and by frequently attending religious gatherings where Allah’s name is mentioned often, where there is discussion of the greatness of Islamic teaching regarding the tarbiyyah (education, development) of the individual, the family, and the community and where those present ponder the might of Allah, the Subduer, the Omnipotent, from which nothing in heaven or earth can detract, and meditate on the wonder of His creation of the universe and of man.

True Muslims whose soul is filled with generosity will naturally be hospitable, welcoming their guest warmly and cheerfully hastening to honor him, acting upon the Islamic attitude which is deeply rooted in his heart and which is based on belief in Allah (SWT) and the last Day. The Prophet (SAW) said: “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him honor his guest.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

The Prophet’s journey began when Jibril (AS) came to him, split open his chest, and washed it with zam-zam water. Jibril (AS) then took a basin that was filled with wisdom and faith, and poured it into the Prophet’s chest; and then, finally, Jibril (AS) closed his chest, held him by his hand, and took him on his night journey.
