It was during this blessed month that the Holy Prophet travelled from Mecca to Jerusalem on a heavenly animal called Bur’aq.
He then ascended to heaven with angel Gabriel, met the other Prophets, led prayer and met the angels. He was shown heaven and hell and more importantly saw and met Allah (swt).
The Holy Prophet conversed directly with Allah (swt).
On that night no one witnessed what was said or what happened between Allah (swt) and the Holy Prophet (saw), because during that night our Holy Prophet crossed ‘Sidrat-ul-Muntaha’, the highest place on the last heaven where even angel Gabriel was unable to cross…some information regarding this interaction/journey is revealed to us through the Qur’an and hadiths whilst the rest is a secret…
This incident took place on the 27th of Rajab (2nd/3rd September this year?)…
The Holy Prophet returned home on the same night and reports suggest that his bed was still warm…
This was not a dream but took place in the state of full consciousness…. many people dispute the details of this event but no one can deny that this blessed journey took place and is the greatest miracle ever to be bestowed on the Holy Prophet (saw).
So what did the Holy Prophet see? What did he witness in Heaven/hell? Why did Allah (swt) choose that specific time in the Holy Prophet life to take him on a night journey?
What should WE do on the 27th Rajab? Should we treat it just as any other night because the companions never did anything special?
Please discuss all you know regarding this miraculous event.
