    Exclamation The Yearly Celebration of the Night of Israa' and Mi`raj



    The Great Scholar, Shaykh ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon him), in speaking about the Celebration of the Israa' & Mi'raaj (the Night Journey of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam) mentions some verses and ahadeeth including the saying of Allaah:

    الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا

    [ This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.] (Q5 v 3)

    And the saying of His Messenger (sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam):


    ("He who does an act which our matter is not (in agreement) with will have it rejected.") [Muslim]


    He also mentioned:
    This date on Israa‘ and Mi’raaj occurred was not established in the authentic narrations [of the Prophet Muhammad], neither during the month of Rajab nor in any other month. All that has been mentioned concerning the date of occurrence of al-Israa‘ wal-Mi’raaj is deemed among the scholars of hadeeth to be unauthentic. Belonging to Allaah is a great Wisdom in causing the people to forget the date of its occurrence. However, even if its date was confirmed, it would nonetheless be impermissible for the Muslims to distinguish that night from other nights by doing anything from among the acts of worship. Neither it would be permissible for them to celebrate it, as the Prophet and his companions neither celebrated it nor did they distinguish it with any special acts of worship.

    May Allah guide the Muslims away from Shirk & Bid'ah to Tawheed & the Sunnah.
