Isra and Mi’raj (for dummies)

Posted by Yacoob on June 5, 2013

In honour of tomorrow night’s blessed occasion of the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.’s miraculous night journey and ascension (Isra and Mi’raj), masjids worldwide will commemorate it by holding a special programme. Remember that there are no special acts of worship specified for this occasion – so take what benefit you can from those programmes, but don’t let yourself feel that this is a compulsory act of worship.

In addition to those, here are two enlightening resources which serve as an education and a reminder for us all.

    But for the date (27 Rajab), the picture is fabulous!
    There is no authenticity to judge or claim that ‘tomorrow’s’ night is the night of isra and meraj!
    Have a reading of this, Inshaa’Allah:
    May Allah bless us all with His choicest blessings. Aameen.

    JazakAllah for the input and info. (The pic was done by someone else, by the way.)

    My aim here was not to debate the exact date. The point was to provide info about the occasion itself – regardless of whether we know the exact date or not. Whether it’s tomorrow or not, the fact is that most masjids WILL be holding a program to commemorate it (and I say ‘commemorate’ – not ‘celebrate’), which is why I put this post up today.

    JazakAllah again
