Research about the words “Fahamazanee Bi Qadamihee”

On the night of Meraj, Jibreel (May peace be upon him) descended from the heavens and right from coming to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and continuing through out the journey, he was the very personification of the respect of the Holy Prophet of (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  He held the reins of the mount of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  He did not let go of even a small article of the respect of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).

When he came to the the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), he came with soft steps and rubbed his cheeks on the heels of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  What is to be understood here is that some books of Seerah like Ibn Hisham, etc. have used the words Fahamazanee Bi Qadamihee.  Some people have translated the above mentioned words as “Jibreel (May peace be upon him) kicked me to awaken me”.  This translation is completely wrong and is against logic and is against what has been reported to us well.  No Muslim can even think like this.  This is against the respect and reverence of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and is a lie against a respectful like Jibreel (May peace be upon him).  That’s why linguistic research about these words is being produced here.

First thing to be understood here is that the Prophets have been given such spiritual power that when Jibreel (May peace be upon him) starts his descent from the Sidrah, they smell him right here on the earth and understand that Jibreel (May peace be upon him) is going to descend.  Allama Shihabuddin Khafaji writes in Naseem Al Riyaz:

Translation:  The summary of all this is that, the inward of the Prophets and their senses are angelic.  That’s why they see the ends of the world, hear the creaking o the sky and when Jibreel (May peace be upon him) decides to descend from the sky, they smell him.  (Naseem Al Riyaz, Vol. 3, Pg. No. 545)

In that book, it has been proved beyond doubt using the verses of the Holy Quran, the Hadith and the rulings and sayings of the Imams and the Sahabah that Jibreel (May peace be upon him) is the preferred servant of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  He has been appointed by Allah Ta’ala to serve the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  He does not move away even to the extent of a hair’s breadth from the respect of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  Is it even conceivable that to wake up the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), Jibreel (May peace be upon him) committed such an indecency?  Islam is a religion which teaches culture and refinement and in Islam waking up even a common Muslim like this is against culture and refinement.
