The journey from Earth to Heaven "Shab-e-Mairaj" Mubarak

"It is narrated on the authority of Abdullah bin masood that when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) was taken for the night journey, he was taken to Sidrat-ul-Muntaha, which is situated on the sixth heaven, where terminates everything that ascends from the earth and is held there, and where terminates every thing that descends from above it and is held there The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) was given three (things): he was given five prayers, be was given the concluding verses of Sura al-Baqara, and remission of serious Sins for those among his Ummah who associate not anything with Allah" ~ Sahih Muslim, Book # 001, Hadith # 329
Hazrat Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi wrote the following Qasida-e-Mairaj to pay tribute to the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and he also sketches  the verses in such a way that the whole journey of Mairaj is summarized in them. I hope when you'll read it spirituality will touch your soul and you'll feel so contented and blessed…
