Al Isra W'al Mi'raj
On March 11, 2021 (Rajab 27,1442 AH), as Muslims we honor the miraculous night journey (isra) of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) from Mecca to Jerusalem, his ascension (mi ‘raj) that night through the seven heavens, and his return to Mecca. During this night (the Isra w’al Mi‘raj), of the Prophet’s miraculous ascension, he meets many Prophets, including Jesus and Moses (peace be upon them), and, most wondrously has a direct experience of Allah (swt). During this ascension experience, the Prophet is enjoined to establish the five daily prayers.
On this holy occasion, MCCT sends prayers of peace and blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad, and we send all Muslims the world over, our sincerest wishes that Allah (swt) will grant all His beautiful blessings to them. We ask Him to strengthen us in our practice of prayer, the beautiful gift to us of the Mi ‘raj. We ask Allah (swt) to liberate all who are suffering persecution and oppression across the globe and that He strengthens us in faith and love for all humanity, Ameen.
