In 2023, when is Shab-e-Mairaj?
One of the most frequently mentioned miracles performed by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) occurred during the month of Rajab, which is why it is believed to be a sacred month.
The Shab-e-Mairaj, or “night of the journey,” is a journey that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is said to have made on the night of Rajab 27 in 621 AD, one year before he moved from Makkah to Medinah.
The journey that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had narrated took him to various levels of heaven and even to the farthest mosque, Masjid Al Aqsa in Jerusalem, which is currently the location that is in the most contention between Israel and Palestine.
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is regarded as a special blessing and gift because it is believed to have been a physical journey rather than a dream.
For Muslims, the journey is significant because it serves as a reminder of the Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) status as a messenger of Allah and of the immense blessings he has received.
This year, February 19 marks Rajab 27.
