Shab e Meraj, also known as Lailat al Miraj and Isra Wal Miraj, is a historical night event that has been highly revered and honoured throughout Islamic history. It is thought to have played a significant role in both Islam’s physical and spiritual history. On the back of an animal named Buraq, Prophet Muhammad
( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) made a magnificent ascent to the seven heavens at the lailatul Miraj, also known as Shab e Meraj.
Isra and Mi’raj are two divisions of the grand ascension of Shab e Miraj, which is divided into three parts.
For all Muslims, Shab E Meraj or Lailatul Qadr is a holy night. Our dear Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) travelled to paradise during this night. While the Prophet (PBUH) slept in the Kabah that night, Angel Jibrael visited him and used Zam Zam to cleanse his heart and stomach. The Prophet (PBUH) was then brought to Mosque al-Aqsa. He was later taken to the Heavens by the Angle. On this night, all Muslims become required to perform their five daily prayers. The precise date of Shab E Meraj in Pakistan may be found on this page. Every year, Muslims celebrate this night.

Shab e Meraj in Quran Isra Wal Miraj
Although the Meraj event is described in Surah Bani Israeel which is also known as Surah Al Isra of the Qur’an, Ahadith provide clearer specifics of the occurrence. The Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH ), the final Prophet of Islam, rode a winged animal resembling a mule that was also known as a buraq.
After Surah Al Isra mentioned the Mi’raj occurrence, the accounts, teachings, acts, and quotations of Prophet Muhammad ( صلى الله عليه وسلم) were used to explain the event’s circumstances in detail. In order to lead the other prophets of Islam in prayer, Hazrat Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) proceeded to Al-Aqsa Mosque, which was the furthest mosque from his home. Jibreel, an angel of ALLAH, visited Prophet Muhammad ( صلى الله عليه وسلم) while he was resting and had his heart cleansed with pure waters before he began his trip. On Buraq, the ascent to the sky is called as Mi’raj, which literally translates as “ascension.” According to records, Shab e Meraj occurred in the year 612.
In Quran the further explanation of Shab e Meraj is in Surah Al Najam from Ayat No. 13 to 17. Which describe more about the journey of Prophet Muhammad ( صلى الله عليه وسلم) in Jannah.
How do Muslims in Pakistan Celebrate Shab e Meraj ?
Muslims consider Shab e Meraj to be one of the pivotal moments in Islamic history. That is why it is recognised as a national holiday in several Muslim nations so that people can take the day off to observe it. To celebrate it, each Muslim community has its own traditions and rituals.
Muslims in Pakistan would celebrate this event in their schools by holding events for all of the pupils, such as a speech contest about the Shab E Meraj. The contest would be won by the one who could recount the tale most impressively.
Muslim households would set up some lovely decorations across the neighbourhood at night, complete with flickering lights and candles. Also, while they celebrate it with their families, they would provide them with a variety of delicious dishes and desserts.
Some people would spend the whole night listening to the lecture about the story of Shab e Meraj from the ulema at the Mosques. Some of them will recite the Quran and will do Ibadat all night. Some elders in the community would also share some life stories of prophet Muhammad (PBUH) with their childrens.
