Celebrating Isra & Miraj 1442 H
The Islamic prophet Muhammad PBUH, according to Islam (Quran surah al-Isra), made the trip in a single night about the year 621.

Muhammad is said to have traveled on the back of a winged white beast that resembled a baby horse called Buraq. “Mi’raj” was the name given to his ascension into the heavens.
