Shab-e-Meraj tonight

The holy Shab-e-Meraj will be observed in the country tonight (Monday night) with due religious fervour.

Muslim devotees will offer special prayers at mosques and homes across the country seeking blessings of Allah, the Merciful, for the welfare of the entire nation and the Muslim Ummah.

On the night of 26th Rajab every year, Muslims observe Shab-e-Meraj when Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) embarked on a special journey to meet Allah.

According to Islam, the Great Prophet (PBUH) was transported from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa, from where he ascended to Heaven.

In the journey, the Prophet travelled on the “Buraq” (Swift Horse) to Heaven where the Almighty gave him some instructions to take back to the faithful regarding the details of prayers.
