Isra & Mi’raj
The Isra and Mi’raj (Arabic: الإسراء والمعراج‎, al-’Isrā’ wal-Mi‘rāj) are the two parts of a Night Journey  called Shab-e-Me`raj, that, according to islamic tradition, the Final Prophet (Peace be upon them) took during a single night around the year 621. It has been described as both a physical and spiritual journey. A brief sketch of the story is in Sura 17 Al-Isra of the Quran, and other details come from the Hadith, collections of the reports of the teachings, deeds and sayings of the blessed Prophet  Muhammad (Peace be upon them). In the Isra part of the journey, Propeht  Muhammad (Peace be upon them) travel on the steed Buraq to “The furthermost Mosque” where he leads other prophets in prayer. He then ascends to heaven in the Mi’raj journey where he speaks to Allah, who gives Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon them) instructions to take back to the faithful regarding the details of prayer.
According to traditions, the journey is associated with the Lailat al Mi’raj, as one of the most significant events in the Islamic Calendar.
