Following the ‘Year of Sorrow’, which was a dark time for the Muslims, and three weeks after the incident at Ta’if, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) experienced the Isra and the Mi’raj. This journey begun around the 10th year after revelation and approximately a year before the Prophet’s (saw) migration from Makkah to Medina, known as the Hijrah. It was a journey that began at the Ka’bah in Makkah, to Masjid Al-Aqsa in Jerusalem, and concluded in the Heavens. Al-Isra Wal-Mi’raj was one of the most miraculous experiences that Allah (SWT) had bestowed upon Prophet Muhammad (saw). This journey has no parallel in human history, and concludes beyond the horizons of human comprehension. The Quran says:
“Glorified is He Who carried His servant for a journey by night from the Holy Mosque (in Makka) to the farther Mosque (in Jerusalem) – whose surroundings We have blessed – that We might show him some of Our signs. Indeed He alone is All-Hearing, All-Seeing.” (Sura Al-Isra 17:1)
The story of the Mi’raj is a miraculous story for children that occurred in the month of Rajab. It is a beautiful story to relay to children to teach them about the unseen and to learn about the gift of salah.
