سدرة المنت
Lotus Tree

Sidratu'l-Muntah is a lotus tree that marks the end of the seventh heaven, the boundary where no creation can pass, according to Islamic beliefs. Muhammad, being the only one allowed, traveled with the archangel Gabriel to the Sidratu'l-Muntah where it is said that God assigned the five daily prayers to all Muslims.

In the Bah' Faith, the Sidrat al-Muntahā is a metaphor for the Manifestation of God.
