This year the event of Al-Isra wal Mi’raj falls on February 17-18. We look at the long struggle and suffering that culminated in this miraculous event in the life of the Prophet (pbuh).
Muslims have a tendency to speak about the miraculous nature of the event of Isra wal Mi‘raj. It would be far more helpful if they focus on the circumstances that led to this great event. Muslims would learn much from reviewing these circumstances in the life-struggle of the noble Messenger (pbuh).
Isra wal mi‘raj is an important event in Prophetic history. Muslims must study the events leading to the mi‘raj and what lessons they can derive from them today.
