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 reports, teachings, deeds, and quotations of Prophet Muhammad SW 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 way you put it together is misleading and confusing. Instead os saying "27 Rajab (Shab e Meraj) 2021 will be on Friday 12 March 2021", you should have said "27 Rajab (2021 will be on Friday 12 March 2021 hence Shab e Meraj is on 11 March, Thursday night.
