Me’raj Night and Mab’as Day

31 January 2024

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَىٰ بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلًا مِّنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الْأَقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِنْ آيَاتِنَا

Glory to (Allah) Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from Masjid-e-Haram to Masjid-e-Aqsa, whose precincts We did bless- in order that We might show him some of Our signs.

(Surat ul Isra’- 1)

اَللَّهُمَّ اِنِّيْ اَسْأَلُكَ بِمَبْلَغِ عِزِّكَ وَاَرْكَانِ عَرْشِكَ، وَمُنْتَهَى الرَّحْمَةِ مِنْ كِتَابِكَ، وَبِاسْمِكَ الْاَعْظَمِ الْاَعْظَمِ الْاَعْظَمِ، الْاَعْلَى الْاَعْلَى الْاَعْلَى، وَبِكَلِمَاتِكَ التَّامَّاتِ كُلِّهَا اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَاَنْ تَفْعَلَ بِيْ مَا اَنْتَ اَهْلُهُ، بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ

Mab'as Day (6th Feb 2024 | 27th Rajab)

  • Perform roza on Mab’as Day - ‘Mo’tius-su’alaat’: On the auspicious day of Mab’as we perform roza to celebrate the beginning of Islam and the many ihsaans and blessings of our Nabi Mustafa. According to our Ahlul Bayt AS if a Mumin does roza on Mab’as day and does iftaar by pray Allahumma ya mu’tiyassu’alaat doa it is kaffarat (atonement) for 60 years and the sins and dayn (debts) of Dunya will be eased. It is a tradition that on this day we encourage and teach even young children to do roza, as much as they are able, depending on their age. This is to impress upon children the importance of this day, the ihsaan of Rasulullah, and our identity as Muslims. It is also to begin establishing the habit of roza which, eventually as adults following Rasulullah’s Shari’at, they will do for 30 consecutive days in Shehrullah.
    • Niyyat for roza:

اَللَّهُمَّ اِنِّيْ نَوَيْتُ اَنْ اَصُوْمَ صَوْمِ الْيَوْمِ السَّابِعِ وَالْعِشْرِيْنَ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَجَبِ الْاَصَبِّ اَدَاءً لِلهِ اِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ تَعَالَى

  • Muminen should recite qasida mubaraka ‘Tahan-Nabi’ composed by Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA on presented with audio recording and English translation.
  • Mukasir-o-Dawatil Haqqil Mubeen al-Maula al-Ajal Syedi wa Maulaya Husain Bhaisaheb Burhanuddin AAB will preside over Waaz Majlis at 4:30pm India time in Mazaar-e-Qutbi Complex, insha’Allah. Waaz Mubarak will be broadcast live on YouTube at 5:00pm.

  • The Pillar of Islam - Namaaz (Rasulullah’s Me’raj) - this article narrates that in the Da’aimul Islam it is explained that obligatory Namaaz prayers were, originally, 50 (yes, FIFTY), until Allah Ta’ala in His benevolence reduced them to 5. The reason for that was that on the night of Me’raj, when Rasulullah SA was returning, Musa Nabi SA asked him about the commands that he was given by Allah Ta’ala...
  • Mab'as and Me'raj – A Lesson for Today - this article narrates narrates the zikr about the night of Me’raj when Rasulullah was informed by Jibra’eel that the angels of the highest heavens (Mala’e A’la) are arguing about what is most virtuous of these three things: performing wuzu in the bitter cold, walking to imamat namaaz and pious gatherings, and waiting for one namaaz after the other...
  • Muslim Identity - Rasulullah SA was sent as the Messenger of Islam on the 27th of Rajab, the day of “Mab’as”. It is a momentous day for the Islamic Ummah and we commemorate it by observing rozu. It is the day in which Rasulullah pronounced the prophetic and profound words “la ilaha illa Allah” (there is no God but Allah)...
