In order to fully grasp the significance of the journey of Isra and Mi'raj, we should appreciate the circumstances leading to this miraculous trip, try to understand its implications on the life of the Prophet SAW and subsequently, of the whole ummah.
According To The Majority Of Reports,
The Journey Took Place Roughly About Nine Years
After The Beginning Of Revelation.
Much of the details of the journey are so stupendous that it requires total and utter faith. None of us will ever see even a fraction of what the Prophet SAW witnessed. For example, we all believe in the existence of angels however none of us have ever seen them. Similarly, all Muslims believe in paradise and hellfire, without having seen these places.
