Isra and Miraj
It was in this context that the Prophet Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him) was taken up to the heavens in a miraculous and profound journey Muslims know as Isra and Miraj. This took place in the month of Rajab.
It was the climax of the spiritual progress, which is not attained by anybody except Prophet Mohammed(pbuh). No doubt the night in which he was blessed with this unparalleled honor was one of the greatest night in the history of this WORLD.
For the disbelievers, it only made them more stubborn in their disbelief. But for the true believers, it only strengthened their faith.
For example, the Prophet's trusted Companion, Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) didn't flinch when confronted with this miracle. He firmly believed in it. It was because of this conviction that he was given the title "as-Siddiq" (the truthful one).
Given today's advances in technology, where jumbo jets can send us across the ocean in a span of mere hours, how can we deny this miracle of travel, especially from the Being Who has no limits, whether those are of time or distance?
As well, those who object to the possibility of such a journey-taking place are forgetting the story of Prophet Sulayman(pbuh), who lived several centuries prior to Prophet Mohammed pbuh. It was during his lifetime that the throne of the Queen of Sheba was transported about 1500 miles to his kingdom.
