Join Shaykh Faraz Khan for a faith-affirming evening to learn lessons from the Prophet’s blessed heavenly ascension: Al-Isra wal-Mi’raj.

The Bay Area Muslim community annually commemorates a momentous occasion in the Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ life: the miraculous Night Journey to Jerusalem and Ascension to Heaven (al-Isra wal-Mi’raj).

Muslims choose to fast on the day of Isra and Mi’raj to commemorate this blessed day and earn extra rewards.

This session is also an excellent way to begin spiritually preparing ourselves for Ramadan and enliven our spirit to get through the uncertainty we are challenged with now.

More about this special night

Isra Mi’raj is celebrated on the 27th of Rajab. This night happened in 621, the year of sadness (‘Aam ul Huzn), when Abu Talib & Khadijah (RA) died. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) rode Buraq (a white steed) during his journey, and Allah enjoined 50 prayers and reduced the prayers to five.

 He met different Prophets on the journey:
  • – 7th Heaven met Ibrahim (AS)
  • – 6th Heaven met Musa (AS)
  • – 5th Heaven met Harun (AS)
  • – 4th Heaven met Idris (AS)
  • – 3rd Heaven met Yusuf (AS)
  • – 2nd Heaven met Isa (AS) & Yahya (AS)
  • – 1st Heaven met Adam (AS)
MI’RAJ – Ascend to heaven, where he speaks to God
