Laylat ul- Isra wal
Miraj, the Night of the Journey and Ascension, is spent
reflecting upon one’s actions and one’s general deeds.
Muslims celebrate this holiday because they believe one night
Gabriel took Muhammad to Jerusalem. There he prayed with other
prophets. Gabriel then took Muhammad to heaven where Allah told him
that Muslims must pray five times daily. During this holiday,
Muslims pray and read the Koran.
