There was a story between a jewish scholar and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). The scholar asked him what is the best place on earth, he replied I do not know but I will ask to Jibriel (Alayhis Salaam) and after asking to jibriel (Alayhis Salaam) he responded he does not know either. He asked Allah and he was very close to Him. Between him and Allah there were 70,000 veils. Would you please let me know the correct story in Arabic with haraqat please?

A: The Hadith appear in Mishkaat Shareef Volume 1, page 71. You may refer to it.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

وعن أبي أمامة قال: إن حبرا من اليهود سأل النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: أي البقاع خير؟ فسكت عنه وقال: «أسكت حتى يجيء جبريل» فسكت وجاء جبريل عليه السلام فسأل فقال: ما المسؤول عنها بأعلم من السائل ولكن أسأل ربي تبارك وتعالى. ثم قال جبريل: يا محمد إني دنوت من الله دنوا ما دنوت منه قط. قال: وكيف كان ياجبريل؟ قال: كان بيني وبينه سبعون ألف حجاب من نور. فقال: شر البقاع أسواقها وخير البقاع مساجدها (مشكاة #741)
