Kindly provide the reference and authenticity of the Hadith where the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) could see Baytul Maqdis from Makkah when the Quraysh rejected his message.
Imams Bukhari, Muslim, and others (rahimahumullah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu). It is therefore authentic (Sahih).
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3886, and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 170)
Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu) has narrated that he heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) say:
‘When the Quraysh accused me of lying, I stood in the Hatim, and Allah Ta’ala showed me Baytul Maqdis. I then began to inform them of its features whilst looking at it.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3886)
And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
