Every person knows that to lead his life, every human being requires some things. Food, clothing and housing are called the necessities of life on which life depends. These are inseverable needs. In the night of Meraj, Allah Ta'ala expressed the distinction of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) that no human being can live without a house, no human being can travel the space without any mechanical device, but the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) traversed the cosmos and reached the La Makaan. This is a distinction of His Bashariyyat.
Similarly, human beings cannot live without food, but this is a miracle of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) that He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) would fast for days together without any food or drink. The Sahabah also started fasting continuously like Him, but they became weakness and infirmity started overwhelming them. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Who among you is like me? I spend my nights at my Lord’s. My Lord feeds me. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 1825)
This is an established fact that angels are created from Noor. Hadhrat Jibraeel (May peace be upon him) is the chief of all angels. Thus, it is plain that he is distinct from all angels in his radiance. But in the night of Meraj, Jibraeel (May peace be upon him) also stopped at Sidratul Muntaha. He said: O Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)! If I budge from this point even to the extent of a segment of a finger, I will be burnt by the manifestations of Noor of Almighty Allah Ta'ala. As given in Tafseer Ruh Al Bayan, Vol. 5, Pg. No. 121:
