Al-Israa' and Al-Mi`raj
Historians refer to the year of Al-israa' and Al-Mi'raj as the Year of Grief in which the Prophet lost his wife Khadijah.
Prophet Muhammad started his journey of ascension from Al-Mi`raj Rock. In company with Angel Jibreel, he reached the seventh heaven within seconds
This journey was a decisive stage of the Prophet's call in Makkah, because there were several cases of people embracing Islam..
The Prophet (Pbuh) saw examples of people of Hellfire and different ways of their punishment when he was ascending through the heavens.
The Ascension brought to men and jinn as a gift the essentials of Islam, including primarily the prescribed five daily prayers
The ascension toward civilization will never be a success without the existence of the spiritual and moral aspects in all our actions.
Al-Israa’ and Al-Mi`raj is an event we recall every year and in whose shade we sit to talk about our Prophet’s miraculous journey
