"And strive for Allah with the endeavour which is His right. He hath chosen you and hath not laid upon you in religion any hardship;"  (22:78)


The hadith narration about the Prophet's journey of Mairaj is very detailed.  It says about the Prophet Muhammad meeting all the previous prophets, exploring every bit of Paradise etc.  And the Almighty Allah appointing 50 prayers a day for believers and giving this message to the Prophet.  Then Prophet Moses telling Prophet Muhammad to tell Allah to lessen the number of prayers as 50 would be too much.  The Prophet Muhammad returns, Allah lessens the number of daily prayers to 5.  Again Moses says it's too much but the Prophet refuses to request Allah to lessen it.  Just imagine the details!  Aren't these details very very important for all of humankind to know ?  So why didn't Allah tell us even a little bit about it in the Quran ?  Since the Almighty Allah didn't tell us anything of this sort, hence, on who's authortiy are we supposed to believe it ?  Just because some people came up 200 years after the actual event and presented details after details in writing is a flimsy reason to accept such a vivid description. 

Now let's check the statements of the Noble Quran regarding Mairaj.  What exactly and how much does the Quran mention about the journey of Mairaj ?  Please read the following carefully:

"Glorified be He Who carried His servant by night from the Inviolable Place of Worship to the Far distant place of worship the neighbourhood whereof We have blessed, that We might show him of Our tokens! Lo! He, only He, is the Hearer, the Seer." (17:1) Bani Israel

"And (it was a warning) when we told thee: Lo! thy Lord encompasseth mankind, and We appointed the sight which We showed thee as an ordeal for mankind, and (likewise) the Accursed Tree in the Qur'an. We warn them, but it increaseth them in naught save gross impiety." (17:60) Bani Israel

 6. "One vigorous; and he grew clear to view
 7. When he was on the uppermost horizon.
 8. Then he drew nigh and came down
 9.  Till he was (distant) two bows' length or even nearer,
 10. And He revealed unto His slave that which He revealed.
 11. The heart lied not (in seeing) what it saw.
 12. Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he seeth ?
 13. And verily he saw him yet another time
 14. By the lote-tree of the utmost boundary,
 15. Nigh unto which is the Garden of Abode.
 16. When that which shroudeth did enshroud the lote-tree,
 17. The eye turned not aside nor yet was overbold.
 18. Verily he saw one of the greater revelations of his Lord."
(53:6-18) An-Najm


Studying the details of the journey of Mairaj as elucidated in the Noble Quran:  In verses 1 and 60 of the 17th Surah, Bani Israel (or Al-Isra as it's also called), the Almighty Allah mentions about taking the Prophet from Makkah to Jerusalem.  The "sight" as stated in 17:60 refers to the vision of Mairaj.  From this verse, it's likely that the Prophet got a sight of the "Accursed Tree" in Hell.  Some have interpreted this tree being the same as the Zaqqum tree (Verses 37:62-68, 44:43, and 56:52).  Then coming to Surah 53, An-Najm, verses 6-12 refer to the Prophet's vision at Mount Hira.  These verses have nothing to do with Mairaj.  Verses 13-18 of this Surah refer to the Prophet's vision / journey of Mairaj.  Allah refers to this as "one of the greater revelations."  In these verses 13-18, Allah refers to the Prophet seeing angel Gabriel by the Lote Tree.  By dictionary definition, Lote Tree is the tree in Paradise.  In these verses, Allah mentions the Lote Tree ("of the utmost boundary") near ("nigh") which is the "Garden of Abode" or Paradise.  Thus, the visions of the Prophet during the journey of Mairaj as per the statements of the Noble Quran includes the contents as explained in this paragraph.  That is ..

-  the Prophet was carried from Makkah to Jerusalem,
-  the Prophet saw this Vision (i.e. Mairaj) but no more details of the Vision are given except as follows:
-  possibly the Prophet saw the Accursed Tree (but not sure),
-  and during this journey the Prophet saw angel Gabriel by the Lote Tree near the Garden of Paradise.   

This is about all that's mentioned in the Quran about the journey of Mairaj.  However, this doesn't mean that the Prophet saw nothing more.  That might have been very possible, but since Allah has not mentioned anythng else, thus we cannot presume on our own.  That would be a fabrication.   So we have to leave it uptil the point described by the Quran.   

Compared to this, the intricate details elucidated by the hadith are quoted below.  It's so extensive and totally different compared to the Quranic description of the same event that it would seem unwarranted for a believer  who adheres to the instructions of the Almighty Allah not to believe in anything without knowledge to accept such a human narration blindly.  Reliable knowledge (particularly about such vital issues) can be given to us only from Allah. 


The Hadith on Mairaj:


Quote
A narration attributed to Anas bin Malik reports:

The night Allah's Apostle was taken for a journey from the sacred mosque (of Mecca) Al-Ka'ba: Three persons came to him (in a dream while he was sleeping in the Sacred Mosque before the Divine Inspiration was revealed to Him...they came on another night, i.e. after The Divine Inspiration was revealed to him. (Fateh-Al-Bari Page 258, Vol. 17) and he saw them, his eyes were asleep but his heart was not...So those angels did not talk to him till they carried him and placed him beside the well of Zam-Zam...He then ascended with him to the heaven of the world and knocked on one of its doors. The dwellers of the Heaven asked, 'Who is it?' He said, "Gabriel." They said, "Who is accompanying you?" He said, "Muhammad." They said, "Has he been called?" He said, "Yes" They said, "He is welcomed." ... Then Gabriel took him around that Heaven and behold, he saw another river at the bank of which there was a palace built of pearls and emerald. He put his hand into the river and found its mud like musk Adhfar. He asked, "What is this, O Gabriel?" Gabriel said, "This is the Kauthar which your Lord has kept for you." Then Gabriel ascended ... On each Heaven there were prophets whose names he had mentioned and of whom I remember Idris on the second Heaven, Aaron on the fourth Heavens another prophet whose name I don't remember, on the fifth Heaven, Abraham on the sixth Heaven, and Moses on the seventh Heaven because of his privilege of talking to Allah directly. Moses said (to Allah), "O Lord! I thought that none would be raised up above me."... But Gabriel ascended with him (the Prophet) for a distance above that, the distance of which only Allah knows, till he reached the Lote Tree (beyond which none may pass) and then the Irresistible, the Lord of Honor and Majesty approached and came closer till he (Gabriel) was about two bow lengths or (even) nearer. (It is said that it was Gabriel who approached and came closer to the Prophet. (Fate Al-Bari Page 263, 264, Vol. 17). Among the things which Allah revealed to him then, was: "Fifty prayers were enjoined on his followers in a day and a night." Then the Prophet descended till he met Moses, and then Moses stopped him and asked, "O Muhammad ! What did your Lord en join upon you?" The Prophet replied," He enjoined upon me to perform fifty prayers in a day and a night." Moses said, "Your followers cannot do that; Go back so that your Lord may reduce it for you and for them." So the Prophet turned ... till the enjoined prayers were reduced to only five prayers...The Prophet returned to Moses who asked, "What have you done?" He said, "He has lightened our burden: He has given us for every good deed a tenfold reward." Moses said, "By Allah! I tried to make Bani Israel observe less than that, but they gave it up. So go back to your Lord that He may lighten your burden further." Allah's Apostle said, "O Moses! By Allah, I feel shy of returning too many times to my Lord." On that Gabriel said, "Descend in Allah's Name." The Prophet then woke while he was in the Sacred Mosque (at Mecca). Sahih Bukhari 9:93:608

Unquote


Now coming to the truth that there's no hardship in religion, this Hadith clearly mocks the Quran and the Prophet.  Allah says that He has placed no hardship in religion.  Yet the hadith says that Allah appointed 50 daily prayers for mankind.  And the Prophet commutes between Allah and Moses to lessen the number of prayers on Moses' advise.  The Almighty Allah gives us no warrant to accept such illogical ideas.  I repeat, Allah has Himself mentioned in the Quran that there's no hardship in religion.  We all know that it would be very hard for people to sit down for prayers 50 times in a single day.  If we can perceive this fact, is it possible that Allah wouldn't understand it ?  Surely that would be a thoroughly incorrect and rude  presumption on our part.  Allah is most well aware of everything and He is the All-Knowing.  He knows us even better than we do ourselves. 

To conclude, as careful and conscientious believers, we must not accept anything beyond what's mentioned in the Noble Quran regarding the incident of Mairaj and everything else.

I had been looking for this for a long time - to compare the mention of Meraj as in the Quran and hadith. You've displayed a very accurate comparison .. clear, straightforward and simple to follow. It is important to analyse this aspect in order to bring out the hadith contradiction yet again. God plainly states no hardship in religion, and hadith wants to show that God tried to make religion hard.

If I'm not mistaken, there is also another hadith on Meraj that says God first prescribed 500 prayers a day and then 50, and finally 5. Each time Prophet Moses (pbuh) suggested to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to return to God to lessen it. Surely, the Almighty God is very capable of dealing with people who write such stories.

The journey of Isra and Meraj was an awesome & unique one for the Prophet. Along with the revelation of the Quran, it was the other miracle of Allah toward the Prophet. That's why God mentions in 17:60 of Meraj being "one of the greater revelations." But the hadith authors write about this Journey as if it was a journey from one's house to the marketplace. The various ahadith on Meraj are so extensive, but those specific points mentioned in the Quran have not been included in the hadith. This only shows that these hadith authors never even read the Quran.

Thank you much PT. I'm sure you must have worked very hard to prepare this great analysis.

Alhamdulilah, very enlightening read.  Thank u PT and ruhi.  I must save this in my Islamic studies file.  Of course, the hadiths on Isra and Mairaj are very discrepant and completely clash with the facts as mentioned in the Glorious Quraan.

In this regard I would like to add one more issue.  If a Hadith fan reads this, they will at once ask .. "if you reject this hadith then how do you explain the origin for 5 prayers a day?"

Certainly, I don't want to quarrel with them.  If they wish to accept the hadith stories, that's upto them.  But the answer is very simple.  The Divine Commandment for the 5 daily prayers come directly from the Quran.  Kindly check out post titled Salaat to be offered 5 times and not 3 times for information.  Actually I've been asked this question even by the Free Minders.  They too are just as argumentative and fixated as the hadithers.

Similarly concerning the method of salaat, the Quran contains 4 rules - ruku, sajood, recitation of Fatiha and recitation of whatever portions of the Quran we can remember.  As long as we follow  these 4 rules by implementing them in our prayers with the strict intent or niyyah of directing our prayers or salaat ONLY to Allah alone, is enough.  All other details introduced as procedures of salaat are man-made and can differ from person to person. 
For complete detailed information, please check our post Does the contain the exact method of Salaat? 

Thanks again for this important scrutiny.

Thank u for sharing this persian.  I found it very beneficial.  May Allah reward your good efforts, ameen.

I have also pondered upon something else on this issue.   According to the hadith description of Isra & Meiraj, the Prophet (pbuh) is said to have been accompanied by angel Gabriel uptil a certain point in the Heavens when Gabriel was allowed to go no further and the Prophet went alone. 

But if you read those Quranic verses that discuss Isra and Meiraj, the mention of angel Gabriel in only in verse 53:13-14 of Surah An-Najam.  Of course, Allah knows best, but from the tone of this verse it seems to me that the Prophet saw angel Gabriel for the first time during this journey by the Lote Tree which is near the Garden of Jannah.  And as we can read, verses 17:1 and 17:60 make no mention of the presence of angel Gabriel accompanying the Prophet nor any mention of the Prophet riding on a horse with wings as talked by hadith.  Personally the impression I get is that the Prophet travelled alone through the power of Allah, and saw angel Gabriel as mentioned in verses 13 and 14 of Surah An-Najam by the tree near Paradise.  And only God knows best.

Thanks all for appreciating my work and for taking the time to write your feedback.  That was just as helpful for me. 

By the way -- those verses of the Noble Quran I've quoted are the only ones that mention about Isra and Mairaj.  To the best of my knowledge, there's no more mention of this Journey anywhere else in the Quran.  If anyone comes across any other verses on Isra and Mairaj, please post it for my information.

u r welcomed brother. I too can't recall of any other verses on Meraj except the ones u quoted.

There's also a debate in the 'ulema' circle about the event of Isra Meraj being visionary or physical. Some say it was seen in a dream and some say it was physical. From the style of the Quranic narration and from the verses of Surah An-Najm, I would say it was physical. Verses 6 to 12 of this Surah describe the Prophet's vision of Angel Gabriel at Mt. Hira. Soon after that verses 13 t 18 of the same Surah describe the Prophet's vision of Angel Gabriel near Paradise referring to the journey of Meraj, calling it "one of the greater revelations." We know that the vision at Mt. Hira was physical, not a dream. Therefore, the vision by the Lote tree near Paradise being mentioned along with it and called as "one of the greater revelations" also obviously must be physical.

However, only the Almighty God knows best.

Same here.  I'm also quite sure that these are the only verses that mention about Isra and Mairaj. But in case I do come across anything else in the Quraan linked with this topic, I'll put it here, InshAllah.

However, only the Almighty God knows best.


Salaams all.  I contemplated a little after reading Verse 17:60 and thought I was ready for a bit more feedback.

To begin with of course, this is something which only Allah knows best and no matter how much we discuss, we can never arrive at a proven conclusion.  I believe that Allah meant it to be that way. 

Isra and Meraj was an event very spiritual that involved those aspects of the next realm, the details of which belong deep into the Unseen that Allah has not decided to tell us.  And Almighty Allah did show much of those hidden portents to the Prophet (pbuh), Alhamdulilah.  If someone thinks that this Journey was spiritual and not physical, that would not necessarily mean a dream, but it could very well mean that it was the Prophet's soul that travelled on this Journey without his body.  From our worldly perception, some of us might interpret this as a 'dream' but in reality it's not at all a dream.  Normally, for common people, the soul would travel away from the body only at the time of death.  This is the standard law of the Almighty Allah.  But nothing is impossible for Allah.  In exceptional cases, He can separate the soul from the body temporarily for a certain purpose which Allah would want that soul to accomplish.  The Prophet's journey of Isra and Meraj is a very appropriate exceptional event of this kind.  Besides, since the details of this Journey belongs so much to the Unseen, it's also possible that by the Will of Allah, the Prophet might not recall the basic occurences of this Journey and not all the details so that many of the major portents of Allah remain hidden from humankind at large.   Thus, apart from the Hadith, there are no reports of the Prophet (pbuh) giving any such vivid details about Isra and Meraj.  But I repeat, only Allah knows best.  We simply know for sure that Isra and Meraj happened along with those visions that the Prophet saw as stated in the Quraan (elucidated in br. PT's post).  Anything that we might figure out beyond what's stated in the Quraan, is remains a speculation from our minds till the Day of Judgment when Allah will reveal the Truth, if He Wills.  InshAllah. 

I would like to add one more thing here.  It seems to me that some words in Pickthall's English translations have been changed in the very modern times.  I am in a good position to compare this because the copy of Pickthall's English translation that I have (along with the original Arabic of course) has been in my family since the last 45 years.  It's a very old copy consisting of Pickthall's unedited translations.  The website of Pickthall's translations that I use for online reference is at Call to Islam. It seems to me that here the English translations have been slightly tampered with by those running this site.  Verse 17:60 of Surah Bani Israel or Al-Isra as it's also called is as follows in my old copy.

"And (it was a warning) when we told thee: Lo! thy Lord encompasseth mankind, and We appointed the vision which We showed thee as an ordeal for mankind, and (likewise) the Accursed Tree in the Qur'an. We warn them, but it increaseth them in naught save gross impiety."  17:60

In the above mentioned website, the English translation by the same author is:

"And (it was a warning) when we told thee: Lo! thy Lord encompasseth mankind, and We appointed the sight which We showed thee as an ordeal for mankind, and (likewise) the Accursed Tree in the Qur'an. We warn them, but it increaseth them in naught save gross impiety."  17:60

If you concentrate carefully, in the online Pickthall translation, the word "sight" has replaced "vision" which I have in my old copy.  I have no doubt that Pickthall must have used the term "vision" while translating.  45 years ago there was no internet, so the possibility of changing it then does not arise.   Being very well versed in Arabic, Pickthall must have thought "vision" to be an accurate term for this translation.  If "vision" is really a more accurate term than "sight" for translating this Verse, it could refer to the spiritual vision i.e. soul travelling into the Heavens by the permission of Allah.   And only Allah knows best.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Assalamu alaikum,

I just want to say that we should keep in mind the point of the Verse being there. The discussion of anything 'beyond' the Verse is non-beneficial if that discussion does not do much in the way of Qur'anic guidance.

So what can we gain from the Verse? I would say the Verse is primarily there to emphesise on Allah's great power as per the main theme of the Qur'an - ie. He is able to do all things. The ending of Verse, supports this.

If it was a 'dream', it seems the Verse is explaining the phenomenon in ways a dream would not be referred to, we all have dreams as ordinary human beings. The way it is mentioned, the interpretation of it being a physical journey, or atleast something more then just a dream, seems more probable. But Allah knows the actual truth of the matter.

peace.

Thanks much dear brother.  I truly appreciate your approach.  It's correct and to the point.  Grasping the essence of every verse of the Quraan should be the most important goal of a reader.  And true, the Almighty Allah is All-Powerful.  He can make anything happen.  Like you, I am also of the strong opinion that this Journey was much beyond an ordinary dream.  Even if it was a Journey of the soul, it certainly cannot be equated with an ordinary dream.  People generally tend to think with very shallow ideas, and thus they aren't able to differentiate between the experiences of a soul and a regular dream. 

The problem with all humans is that anything about the Unseen that they are unable to comprehend through their limited knowledge, they tend to either refute or alter it in a way that fits into their existing knowledge.   This is typically an outcome of either having little or no faith in God and therefore forgetting His infinite Powers, or by not reflecting enough on the depth of the Quraanic contents. 

Thanks again br. AOH.  walaikum salaam and peace Smiley

I too found this article very informative, MashAllah.  The simple fact is that the Noble Quran clearly commands us to pray 5 times a day.  But because those medieval imams had never read the Quran and were only interested in changing Islam, they made that complicated story.

JazekAllah khair, sisters.  Allah bless.

Yes, the Noble Quran definitely mentions about our 5 salaats a day.   To check the verses of the Quran that command the 5 daily salaats, reference is to post Salaat to be offered 5 times, not 3.   There are some modernists who are propagating the wrong information that prayers are to be offered 3 times a day.  The post in this link is a clear evidence that the Quran confirms 5 salaats a day.

lol ,, exactly. Very correct.   Only the Hadith narrators and compilers can say such illogical things.  

The Hadith that says about 50 prayers a day is the type of Hadith that mocks the Quran.   Such Hadiths try to portray that Allah is harsh and illogical, Nauzbillah.   Allah is the Most Merciful and Allah only commands us to do what is practical and easily manageable.   That's why Allah has stated in the Quran that He has placed no hardship in religion.
