On the night of February 27, 2022 ((Rajab 26,1443 AH), Muslims commemorated the miraculous night journey (isra) of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) from Mecca to Jerusalem, his ascension (mi ‘raj) that night through the seven heavens, and his return to Mecca. During the Prophet’s miraculous ascension, he met many Prophets, including Jesus and Moses (peace be upon them), and had a direct experience of being in the presence of Allah.
Also during this ascension experience through the heavens, Allah (swt) commanded Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to establish the five daily prayers for the Muslim community. On this holy occasion, the Muslim Coalition of CT sends prayers of peace and blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
In solidarity with all our Muslim brothers and sisters globally, we pray that Allah (swt) will grant all his beautiful blessings to them. We ask Him to strengthen us in our practice of prayer, the beautiful gift to us of the Mi‘raj. We ask Allah (swt) to liberate all who are suffering persecution and oppression across the globe, and to strengthens us in faith and love for Him, for all of humanity, and all of His creation.
