Lessons from Israk and Mikraj

  • The month of Rejab is one of the four sacred months that are glorified by Allah (s.w.t.). In the last week of Rejab, members of the Muslim community will commemorate a significant event that was experienced by our beloved Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.). It is the event of Israk and Mikraj, which occurred on the 27 of Rejab according to many scholars.
  • Through the event of Israk and Mikraj, the Prophet (s.a.w.) received the command to perform the five obligatory daily prayers, with rewards equivalent to praying fifty times.
