THE CELESTIAL JOURNEY 3 of 3
Did Prophet Muhammad directly see Allah Almighty, on the day he saw Heaven, Hell, etc? ‘Aa’ishah (radiallhuanihu) said: “Whoever told you that Muhammad (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) saw his Lord was lying. He said that no vision can grasp him [6:103]…” (Bukhaari). Abu Dharr said: “I asked the Messenger of Allaah (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam), ‘Did you see your Lord?’ He said, ‘ He is veiled by Light, how could I see Him.’” (Muslim).

There is nothing in the saheeh ahaadeeth to indicate that this miraculous journey was in Rajab or in any other month. Even if the date was known or proven, it would not be permissible for the Muslims to single it out for particular acts of worship or venerate that spot or celebrate it. If venerating and celebrating this night were part of the religion of Allaah, then the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) & his companions would have done that. Abu Dharr (ra) : Messenger (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam): “There is nothing by means of which one may draw close to Paradise & move far away from Hell but it has been explained to you. (Tabarani).
“This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion” [5:3]. ‘Aa’ishah (radiallahuaniah) that the Prophet said: “Whoever introduces anything into this matter of ours that is not part of it will have it rejected.”. Is the tashahhud that we recite in the prayer what the Messenger of Allah said when he prostrated at Sidrat al-Muntaha during the Mi‘raj? CAPITAL NO, PROOF? www.islamqa.info/en/117604
SCHOLARLY DERIVED WISDOM OF AL-ISRAA’ WAL MI’RAJ.
1- Affirming the Prophethood of Muhammad (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam). Ibn Al-Qayyim (rh), stated that on the following morning, the Prophet (saw), told his tribe about these great signs of Allaah. However, they accused him of lying and caused him greater injury and harm. Even though he gave them a description of the mosque in Jerusalem and of their caravan that he saw en route, they insisted on their disbelief.
2– Illustrating the great and honorable status of the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam), who led all the prophets in prayer at the masjid al Aqsa on that night.
3- Indicating the unity of all the prophets in terms of their main goals & messages. All of them – from Aadam to Muhammad – called people to the Oneness and worship of Allaah The Almighty and to good morals. He tied al-buraaq to the same post all previous prophets did tie their animals.
4- Distinguishing true believers like Abu bakr (radiallahuanihu), who received the news and accepted this incident with belief and submission, from the disbelievers.
5- Relieving the sorrow and grief of the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam), caused by the prior death of his uncle and his wife who supported him and also by the harm the disbelievers inflicted upon him.
6- Demonstrating the glory and might of Allaah the Almighty Who, when He intends a thing decrees a matter, says to it: “Be,” and it is.
