The gifts of Mi`raj
Me’iraaj or the ascent of beloved holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) from Makkah via Jerusalem up to the seventh heaven is among the most miraculous phenomena of man’s history. During a part of one night, Allah Ta’ala has wanted that His beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) should visit Jerusalem, the prophets, the heavens, Bait-ul-Ma’moor (the Kabah of heaven), Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (a gigantic and explicably marvelous tree) and finally hell and paradise. A journey into infinity travelled in a few hours! This is a reality which forms part of Islamic beliefs, since nothing is impossible for Allah Ta’ala.

OUR AQEEDAH ON MI'RAAJ

It is part of our Islamic beliefs that Me’iraaj or ascent of Prophet Muhammad (saw) took place in reality with body and soul. The Qur’anic verse clearly points to this fact: “Glory to (Allah) who did take His Servant for a journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to Masjidul Aqsa whose precincts We did bless – in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who hears and sees (all things).” (Al Israa: 1). The word ‘abd or servant used in the verse implies that the prophet Muhammad (saw) was in body and soul. Other accounts of dream of Me’iraaj confirm that other Me’iraajs in dream took place.

DATE OF MI'RAAJ

There are accounts that the ascent took place during the night of 27th Rajab. It is noteworthy that the month of Rajab is among the four holy months of Hijri year: Zil Qa’dah, Zil Hijjah, Muharram and Rajab. Other narratives differ as to the (exact) date of Me’iraaj. The following months are mentioned in those narratives: Rabi ul Awwal, Rabi ul Akhir, Rajab, Ramadhaan, Shawwal and Zil Hijjah. (Al Zurqaani). According to Allamah Abdul Haq Dehlawi, the Me’iraaj took place either in the month of Ramadhan or in the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal.

THE CELEBRATION OF 27th NIGHT

Since the sahabas never established any rites on 27th night, then there is no virtue if this night. And since the date of Me’iraaj is not authentically established, the 27th night of Rajab has no preferential status. The 27th night of Rajab has no superiority over the other nights. There are no preferential virtues in that night. Hazrat Umar (ra) used to prevent people from fasting on 27th Rajab. There are absolutely no peculiar fast in respect of Mi'raj. On the other hand, it is an undisputed fact that Lailat-ul-Bara’ah, i.e. the 15th night of Shabaan, holds a significant importance in Islam. Mufti Mackoojee 23/04/2017, 19:45:41: Mufti Mackoojee:

THE PEAK OF MI'RAAJ

People talk about man’s walk on the moon some 40 years ago, but we like to recall that, fourteen centuries ago, our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) journeyed though the (incalculable) dimensions of seven heavens to visit Paradise and Hell and finally to reach the heights that none before had crossed. He spoke to Allah Ta’ala directly and without an interpreter. A space journey of several thousand years accomplished in less than one night! *The spirit of mi'raaj*. Me’iraaj is a miracle and is a benchmark for a Muslim’s belief in Allah (God). That Allah (God) is capable of accomplishing anything of any moment irrespective of means and circumstances. He has absolute power. It is noteworthy that the Me’iiraaj took place in a part of one night. In fact, the spirit of Me’iraaj is, above all, to make us understand that Allah Ta’ala is able to accomplish the impossible. What human intellect considers as difficult and impossible is, for Allah Ta’ala, only very easy and light (simple). In this particular case, He has extended time to enable the Prophet (saw) to pay a visit to the Prophets (as) and journey through the heavens in a few minutes. Allah’s power is absolute and is not subject to anything, not even to the parameters of time. He juggles easily with time and distance according to His will.

The Mi'raaj

In fact, the first phases of Me’iraaj was to prepare the heart of the holy prophet (saw) for that ascent which was to single him out from the other prophets (as). To cross the dimensions of space and go beyond the galaxies and reach the dimensions of the world beyond required a preparation for the body and soul. So, on that night, angel Jibraeel (as) came to the prophet of Allah (saw) and opened his chest and practiced heart surgery. During that operation, Zamzam water was used to fortify the heart. That water is the most sacred one and even the prophet’s soul benefited from it. And then tonics of faith and wisdom were infected into him. As soon as he was ready, he was made to ride the Buraaq, a white animal of middle height between a mule and an ass. That animal, not of terrestrial origin, had a breathtaking speed. It could reach the horizon in just one stride! Reaching Jerusalem in no time, the Prophet of Allah (saw) performed swalah in Al Aqsa masjid. This brings the sunnah to travel and read salaah in Baitul Muqadas. We should revive this sunnah of visiting Masjidul Aqsa and praying there to solve the palestinian issues.

THE GIFTS OF MI'RAAJ.

The three main gifts of Mi`raj are:

1. 5 daily salaahs

2. The last 2 ayahs of sourah Baqarah(Sourah 2: Verse 285, 286)

3. And forgiveness to those very sinful ummati that have not done shirk(that have not associated with Allah Ta`ala). (Muslim Shareef;Tirmizi)

فَأُعْطِيَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ثَلَاثًا أُعْطِيَ الصَّلَوَاتِ الْخَمْسَ وَأُعْطِيَ خَوَاتِيمَ سُورَةِ الْبَقَرَةِ وَغُفِرَ لِمَنْ لَمْ يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ مِنْ أُمَّتِهِ شَيْئًا الْمُقْحِمَاتُ صحيح مسلم

Swalah is such a gift of Me’iraaj received following the divine communion between the Prophet (saw) and his Creator. It is a gift which is worthy of that honour, since it is an ideal way of accomplishing divine satisfaction. Like Me’iraaj, swalah is the means whereby one is propelled upward to attain the nearness of Allah. It is the communion between Allah and His slave. May Allah grant us the will to perform our five daily swalah regularly, which symbolize our ultimate divine communion. Ameen!
