Israk Mikraj holiday ..means to us

'Israk & Mikraj' is a muslim special festival day in remembering the events of our Prophet Mohammad S.A.W.  It's not a tall story, Muslims believe it to be true.  So today, it is our country's public holiday to celebrate it.  Its no meaning typing the words Israq & Mikraj in this blog without explaining to you what actually they are. For non-muslim, let me share what those words mean.  

Israk is when Prophet Muhammad was first taken from Masjidil Haram to Masjid Aqsa. Mikraj was when he was taken up to heaven to meet the Creator, Allah swt. Revelations were given to him about the future, and he saw the conditions in hell. He met the other prophets. And he returned to Makkah. The event happened in one night.

And it's revealed in the al-Quran
"Glory to Allah Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the Farthest Mosque(Masjid al-Aqsa) whose precincts We did bless- in order that We might show him some of Our Signs; for He is the One Who hears and sees all things."
[surah al Isra' 17:1]
and surah an-Najm chapter 13:13-18

Home sweet home,
first we thank to the Almighty Allah,
to bless us in our pray, 
 in happiness and protection.
in a small shelter,
for us,
to eat and sleep,
fill with happiness & sadness,
and at this moment,
now and today
It's the 7th year of its moment with us,
in muslim calendar,
in rememberance to Israk Mikraj,
We are living under its roof,
it is Darulfalah,
