What is Isra and Miraj:

The Night Journey, also known as Shab e Miraj, Isra and Miraj or Al Isra wal Miraj, is observed on 27th day of the month of Rajab (7th month of Islamic Calendar). Shab e Miraj literally translates to ?The Night of Ascent?. This event celebrates the night when the Prophet (S.A.W.) ascended to the Heavens from Masjid Al-Haram in Makkah. One of the great gifts of this night was that obligatory Prayer (Fardh Salah) was instituted on Muslims.


Similar to other events and occasions of the blessed life of our Prophet (S.A.W.), the Night Journey is a rich source of inspiration and lessons for the entire humanity.
