Al Isra’a Wal Mi’raj is an Islamic Ceremony which is observed annually on the 27th day of the Islamic month of Rajab, according to the Hijiri calendar. Al Isra’a Wal Mi’raj roughly translates as “Night Journey and Ascension”.
Israa is an Arabic word referring to Prophet Muhammad’s miraculous night journey from Makka to Jerusalem – specifically, to the site of al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem – as referred to in Surah Al-Israa in the Quran.
It is believed to have been followed by the Mi’raj, his ascension to heaven. According to some of the Hadith scholars this journey is believed to have taken place just over a year before Prophet Muhammad migrated to from Makka to Madina.
Happy Al Isra Wal Mi’raj
