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.)

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.
