Jordan, along with other Arab and Islamic nations, commemorates the anniversary of the Holy Isra and Mi'raj, observed annually on the 27th day of the month of Rajab.

This event holds profound significance, symbolizing the strong bond among Muslims globally and marking the miraculous journey and ascension of the Prophet Muhammad. It underscores the unity within the Islamic world and serves as a source of spiritual inspiration for believers.

The Isra refers to the Prophet's nighttime journey from the Sacred Mosque in Mecca to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, accompanied by the Archangel Gabriel. The Mi'raj, on the other hand, signifies their ascent from Jerusalem to the highest heavens. The majority of scholars agree that the journey was both a physical and spiritual one.

Imam Al-Bukhari said that, during this journey, the Prophet's chest was opened, his heart purified, and filled with faith and wisdom, preparing him spiritually for the revelations to come.

The journey continued with the Prophet ascending through the heavens, encountering prophets and receiving divine revelations. At each stage, he was greeted with honor and recognition of his prophetic mission.

Lessons from the Isra and Mi'raj journey include God's consolation to the Prophet after facing adversity, the testing of people's faith, affirmation of the Prophet's truthfulness, and the significance of prayer and sacred places.

The anniversary serves as a reminder of the Prophet's enduring legacy and the timeless teachings imparted through his miraculous journey, fostering unity, faith, and devotion among believers.
