The Incident of Meeraj un Nabi Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam

The Incident of Meeraj un Nabi Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam

The Journey of Prophet Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasllam

[Bani Israel 17:1] Purity is to Him Who took His bondman in a part of the night from the Sacred Mosque to the Aqsa Mosque around which We have placed blessings, in order that We may show him Our great signs; indeed he is the listener, the beholder. (This verse refers to the physical journey of Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him – to Al Aqsa Mosque and from there to the heavens and beyond. The entire journey back to Mecca was completed within a small part of the night.)

Did you know?

When He Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam was fifty-one years and nine months, He Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam went on the Night Journey commencing from the place between Zamzam and the Maqām, to Jerusalem. The Burāq was brought [again] and he Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam mounted it and was raised to the heavens; prayer was made obligatory during this journey.
