Isra' and Mi'raj is an important event that holds great significance in Islamic tradition. It refers to the night journey and Ascension of Prophet Muhammad to the heavens. Isra means walking or travelling at night; miʿraj means rising or going up to a high place. The Israʾ and Miʿraj are the two parts of a Night Journey that Muslims believe the Islamic prophet Muhammad (AD 570–632) took during a single night around the year AD 621 (1 BH – 0 BH). The Night Journey, also known as Shab e Miraj, Isra, and Miraj or Al Isra wal Miraj, is observed on the 27th day of the month of Rajab (the 7th month of the Islamic Calendar). "Shab e Miraj" translates to "The Night of Ascent." In 2024, Isra' and Mi'raj will fall on February 8. However, the exact date is dependent on the sighting of the moon of Rajab, in 1445. Shab-e-Miraj Mubarak Wishes, Quotes and Images: WhatsApp Messages, Lailat Al-Miraj Greetings, Facebook Status and HD Photos To Send to Family and Friends.
