3 Things You Should Know About Isra and Mi'raj

Isra Mi'raj is the journey of Prophet Muhammad SAW from Masjid al-Haram in Makkah to al-Aqsa in Jerusalem. Then, the Prophet went on his way to sidratul muntaha to receive revelation from Allah SWT. This incident occurred in 621 AD, two years after the death of Siti Khadijah, the wife of the Prophet.

When Isra Miraj happened, Rasulullah was staying at Umm Hani's house, the daughter of Abu Talib. At that time, Rasulullah and family Umm Hani performing prayers in congregation. At night the Prophet visited the Kaaba. Drowsy, he fell asleep at Hijir Ismail.

At that moment, Gabriel came to him three times and took the Prophet away. Isra Mi'raj begins.

Here are three things related to that event.

1. Buraq

Prophet Muhammad rose and stood beside Jibril. This revelation angel took him to the door of the mosque al-Haram. There was a buraq, a white animal, like a cross between a horse and a donkey with a wing on the side where it moved its legs. His steps as far as the eye looked. The Messenger of Allah and Gabriel are riding a buraq.

2. Masjid al-Aqsa

Together with Jibril, the Messenger of Allah traveled to the north of Yasrib and Khaybar up to Jerusalem precisely the al-Aqsa Mosque. Later, he met the prophets of his predecessors: Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets. When praying in Baitul Maqdis, all the Prophets became the Messenger of Allah.

4. Sidratul Muntaha

One of the oldest commentaries based on the hadith of the Prophet is said, sidratul muntaha rooted in the throne (Arsy). It signifies the culmination of every knowledgeable knowledge, including angels and apostles. Everything on it is a hidden mystery, unknown to anyone but God alone. In sidratul muntaha, the Messenger of Allah received the command of prayer (salat).
