The Isra and Mi’raj is one of Allah’s many miracles and honours that He bestowed upon Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).

He intended it as a means to lift a burden off His servant, as the Prophet had faced extreme hardships and sorrows in the beginning of his career as a missionary.

It is unknown when miracle had happened, but Islamic scholars agree that it happened before the Prophet’s migration to Medina in the year 622.

Muslim scholars have agreed this event will be celebrated on the 27th of Rajab.  Mosques in the UAE commemorate this event by giving sermons.
