Al Isra' wa Al Mi'raj - The Night Journey
Glory to Allah Who did take His servant on a journey by night from the Sacred Masjid (in Makkah) to the Masjid of Al Aqsa (in Jerusalem). Whose precincts We did bless. That We may show him some of Our signs. Indeed He alone is All Hearing, All Seeing. (Al Israa 17:1)
It is generally believed that the great event of Mi'raj (Ascension to the Heavens) took place in the night of 27th of Rajab.
We cannot say with absolute certainty in which night the great event of Mi'raj took place. Although some traditions relate this event to 27th night of the month of Rajab, yet there are other traditions that suggest other dates.
