Surah An Najm and Isra Meraj

Heavens

Praise be to Allah SWT for allowing me to still able to write about Isra Meraj again after three years of initial two posts.

Isra Meraj is an event which  Allah gave Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) a tour of the Heavens, Paradise and other great signs.

In the  Surah An Najm ( Surah 53)of  the Holy Quran,  Allah SWT  explains  in  detail of the Holy Prophet’s night journey and ascension to the Heavens .

Surah An Najm is the first Surah of the  Quran, which Prophet had recited publicly before the assembly of the Quraish in which both believers and the disbelievers were present.

At the end , when he recited the verse requiring the Performance of a  Sajdah and fell down in prostration, the whole  assembly also fell down in prostration with him, and even those chiefs of the polytheists who were in forefront  of the opposition to the Prophet (PBUH) could not resist falling down in prostration.

I have reposted Isra Meraj from 21st Centuray perspective , to  remind all of us of the ” Night Journey and Ascension of our beloved Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)” a night, most possibly 27th of Rajab, more than 1400 years ago.

Allah knows the best,

Kyaw Kyaw Oo
