Al Isra Wal Mi’raj (Rajab 27, 1439 H – April 4, 2018)

The Israa and Miraj refer to, two parts of a miraculous journey that Prophet Muhammad took in one night from Mecca to Jerusalem and then an ascension to the heavens.
On the Islamic calendar, Isra’a Wal Mi’raj is generally observed on the 27th day of the month of Rajab. It is believed that Prophet Mohammad was shown heaven and hell in the second part of the journey, known as Mi’raj. He talked with many prophets in heaven. He also received instructions on Islamic prayer. Mohammad returned to Mecca before the end of the night. Some Islamic scholars regard Prophet Mohammed’s journey as a spiritual experience while others see it as a physical journey. His journey is remembered and commemorated on Isra and Mi’raj.
