Al-Miraj

Allah in the Noble Qur'an says:



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


"By the declining star. Your companion is not in error nor has he gone astray. He does not speak out of his own desire. It is a revelations which has been revealed to him and taught to him by the Great Mighty One, the Strong One who appeared on the uppermost horizon. He then came nearer and nearer, until he was as close to Him as the distance of two bows, or even less. He revealed to Allah's servant whatever He wanted. His (Muhammad's) heart did not lie to him about what his eyes had seen. Will you then argue with him about what he saw? He certainly saw Him during his other ascent to the Lote‑tree near which is Paradise. When the tree was covered with a covering, (Muhammad's) eyes did not deceive him, nor did they lead him to falsehood. He certainly saw the greatest (signs) of the existence of his Lord.


During the Me'raj, an Angel taught the following supplication and instructed to recite it during the Morning and the Evening:

"O' Allah! I appeal for relief from my oppression through Your pardon, and I appeal for relief from my sins through Your forgiveness, and I appeal for relief from my own insignificance through your Everlasting Countenance which will never cease to exist. "

From Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 18, p. 329-330, Bab 3 - Ithbaat al-Mi`raaj wa ma`anaahu wa kayfiyyatuhu wa sifatuhu wa ma jaraa feehi wa wasf al-buraaq, Hadith 34.

As narrated by Imam Ali, the blessed Messenger said: "On the Night of my Ascension, I asked Allah: "What action is dearest to you?" ... The Lord of Majesty replied: ...

"O Ahmad, be close to the poor and keep your distance from tyrants! Let your affection be for the Hereafter!"

(For complete hadith see, Irshad by Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak Al-Jerrahi - pg. 457)

  • This blog is very useful. I really enjoy it. I think the time has come for Muslim scholars in Australia to show that they can be a good Muslim and at the same time also be a good Australian. There is no clash of civilisation.
