The Eternal Tree

This is the eternal tree with its roots above and it's
branches downward;this is BRAHMAN,this is the IMMORTAL;in it are lodged all the worlds and none goes beyond it.THIS and THAT are ONE.
In the seventh heaven, Prophet Muhammad saw Sidrat al-Muntaha--a very big tree of sidr. Each of the fruits of this tree is as large as a big jar. The leaves of this tree are similar to the ears of the elephants. Sidrat al-Muntahais an extremely beautiful tree. It is visited by butterflies made of gold. When these butterflies gather on this tree, its beauty is beyond description.
