Shab e Miraj 2024 :

In Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh, Wednesday evening, February 7, 2024, will mark the start of 27 Rajab (Shab e Meraj). On Wednesday night, February 7, 2024, Muslims from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, and other nations will celebrate Lailat al Miraj (also known as Shab e Meraj or Isra Wal Miraj).

Shab e Meraj and Shab e Barat 2024 History

The Night of Ascension, also known as Shab-e-Meraj, is a crucial occasion in Islamic history. It happened in the eleventh year of the prophetic career of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), roughly one year before the Hijra (migration) to Medina. Islamic legend holds that the Prophet (PBUH) was carried by the Angel Jibreel (AS) from the Kaaba in Mecca to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem on this auspicious night. From that point on, the Prophet (SAW) travelled through the heavens and encountered a number of prophets before arriving at the Divine presence. These prophets were Musa, Ibrahim, Isa, Yusuf, Adam, Idris, and Haroon (as).

Allah gave the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) the instruction to offer the five daily prayers (salah) during their celestial journey. This night is a testimony to the Prophet’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) great status as the Seal of the Prophets and represents his unmatched proximity to Allah. Celebrated on the 27th night of the Islamic month of Rajab, Shab-e-Meraj serves as a reminder to Muslims of the value of religion, prayer, and the spiritual link between the worlds of earth and heaven.

Spiritual Significance:

  • It reaffirms the Prophet’s (PBUH) special connection with Allah and his status as a chosen messenger.
  • It serves as a reminder of the unseen world and the importance of faith and spiritual connection.
  • The gift of prayer is seen as a direct connection between believers and Allah.

Historical Significance:

  • It highlights the importance of Jerusalem and Masjid al-Aqsa as sacred sites in Islam.
  • It strengthens the connection between Muslims worldwide through a shared tradition and belief.

Personal Significance:

  • It encourages Muslims to reflect on their own spiritual journeys and connection with Allah.
  • It serves as a reminder of the importance of prayer and its role in daily life.
