Isra Wal Miraj Story (Waqia)
Shab e Meraj also called Lailat al Miraj and Isra Wal Miraj, a historical night event much celebrated and respected in Islamic history is believed to be an important physical as well as spiritual journey in the history of Islam. The lailatul Miraj / Shab e Meraj was basically a remarkable ascension of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) to seven heavens which he took on back of an animal Buraq.
The great ascension of Shab e Miraj is split into two parts which are called Isra and Mi’raj.

Surah Al Isra in Qur’an has mentioned the event of Mi’raj while details of the event are clearer in Ahadith. The last Prophet of Islam, the Hazrat Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) traveled on the back of a winged mule-like beast also known as Buraq.

The reports, teachings, deeds, and quotations of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) were later explained the event happenings in detail after Surah Al Isra mentioned the event of Mi’raj. Hazrat Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) traveled to the farthest mosque which was Al-Aqsa Mosque where he led all other prophets of Islam in prayer. Before he started off his journey, Jibreel, the angel of God, came down to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) while he was sleeping and had his heart washed with pure waters. The journey to the heavens on the back of Buraq is known to be as Mi’raj which means Ascension in a literal sense. The event of Shabe e Miraj took place in the year 612 as per record.

The Lailat al-Mi’raj also known as Shab-e-Mi'raj or Isra Wal Miraj is celebrated throughout in Muslim world, especially in Pakistan, India, Turkey, Bangladesh, Iran, and Saudi Arabia. Many Muslims pray optional prayers during this night while other gathers to illuminate cities and lands with candles and electric lights.
