Another hadith on Verse 1 of Surah Al Isra’

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said:
"On the night when I was taken on the Night Journey, I woke up in Makkah the next morning having anxiety that I knew that the people would not believe me." He kept away from people, feeling anxious and sad, then the enemy of Allah Abu Jahl passed by him and came to sit with him, saying mockingly, `Is there anything new' The Messenger of Allah (saw) said,

"I was taken on a Journey last night." He said, `Where to?’ He (saw) said, "to Bayt Al-Maqdis." He said, `Then this morning you were among us?’ He (saw) said, “Yes". Abu Jahl did not want to say to his face that he was lying, lest he deny saying it when he called other people to hear him, so he said: `Do you think that if I call your people, you will tell them about what happened?' The Messenger of Allah (SAW)  said, “Yes." Abu Jahl said, `O people of Bani Ka`b bin Lu'ay!' People got up from where they were sitting and came to join them. Abu Jahl said, `Tell your people what you told me.' The Messenger of Allah said: "I was taken on a Journey last night." They said, `Where to’ He (saw) said, "To Bayt Al-Maqdis." They said, `Then this morning you were among us’ He (saw) said, “Yes". They began to clap their hands together and put their hands on their heads in astonishment at this "lie'' - as they claimed it to be. They said, `Can you describe the sanctuary to us?' Among them were some who had travelled to that land and seen the sanctuary, so the Messenger of Allah (saw) said,

"I started to describe it, until I reached a point where I was not sure about some of the details, but then the sanctuary was brought close and placed near the house of `Uqayl so I could look at it and describe the details." There were some descriptions I couldn't remember. The people said, `As for the description, by Allah he has got it right.''
