Like one of the other posters, I too wanted to say that although there is no doubt that the Isra' and Mi'raaj (the Prophet's Night Journey and Ascent into heaven)
are two great signs of Allaah which point to the truthfulness of the His
Messenger Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and the
greatness of his status before Allaah, the celebration held by some people on the 27th of Rajab for the night of the Mi'rj is an innovation and there is nothing in the saheeh ahaadeeth to indicate that it is in
Rajab or in any other month. Everything that has been narrated concerning a
specific date for these events cannot be proven to have come from the
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) according to the
scholars of hadeeth.
So basically It is not even known for sure that it the 27th of Rajab is the night of Mi'rj,
and even if it was, we are not allowed to hold a celebration in its
honor, because the Prophet (peace be upon him) never celebrated it, nor
did his caliphs or his companions. Had it been good and lawful, they
would have done it long before us.
Celebrating this day is wrong as it also goes against the
ahaadeeth of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)
which warn against innovation (bid'ah)
Also I just want to say that the information that I have just posted is taken from well known Islamic websites that are good sources of information based on the Quran and Sunnah. So I would like to say to the person who posted this topic, please before posting such topics do more research and find out if the sources you are getting the information from are authentic or not. These matters are not to be taken lightly. So please make changes in the original post or take any action necessary to clear the misconceptions
I dont know if IF removes the external link or not but if anyone wants the website I got the information from then please PM me. InshAllah I will give it to you,
As salam alaikum
The mairaj incident was from Makkah period n i even wrote in my post that it was not confirmed on what day it was people have a doubt that it was on 27th of Rajab or some month or 17th of Rabi ul awal. U r right here that v can't celebrate as its a bida'at.
Mohammed Slalaho alehe wsalm lived 10 years after hijrat in Madinah, He never celebrated this day nor Khulfai e rashdeen or his companion ever celebrate or preached to celebrate, but v can't make it understand to all people. Reason is this they don't go for research n if v'll tell them they will accuse us from being some firqa (sect).
I appreciate ur answer here
