“The Miraculous Night Journey”
Isra and Mi’raj, also known as Al Isra’ wal Miraj, is observed on the 27th day of the month of Rajab, the seventh month in the Islamic calendar. This event marks the night that Allah took Mohammad (also known as Mohamed or Muhammed) on a journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and then to heaven.
The events of #Isra and #Mi’raj are referred to briefly in the Qur’an. For greater detail, they have been discussed in #Hadith literature, reported sayings of the prophet which supplement the Qur’an. Of the hadith, two of the best known are by Anas ibn Malik, who would have been a young boy at the time of Muhammad’s journey of Mi’raj. Ibn ‘Abbas is another source that challenges the usual description of the Mi’raj. He was also a young boy at the time of the journey
