Is The Prophet’s Resting Place Greater Than The Garden?


As Salaamu Alaykum.
Is the Prophet’s resting place (Allah bless him and give him peace) greater than the Rawda and Janna?


Wa ‘alaykum assalam ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh.

I pray you are well.

Yes, the soil that touches the blessed body of the Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace)is better than Janna. It is better than anything else Allah has created, including the Ka’ba and the very throne of Allah. (Gassus, Sharh al Shama’il)

He is the greatest of Allah’s creation (Allah bless him and give him peace). He came to teach us the best of character – which is how we become better people, and of those beloved, to him, He is the greatest of Allah’s creation (Allah bless him and give him peace). May Allah facilitate this for us.

May Allah grant you the best of both worlds.
