Israk Mikraj or The Journey by Night – quite a story, actually.
You find this narrated in Bukhari’s Hadis Sahih.
I like how Dina Zaman narrates this mind-blowing event in Malaysiakini
I’ve always wondered, though, when God commanded that Muhammad should perform his prayers 50 times a day, would not Muhammad have replied, ‘I hear, I obey, my Lord’?
And when Moses, having been told of this whilst Muhammad was descending, said ‘Muhammad, your people would not be able to abide that. They would not be able to cope’ ( as narrated by Dina ), would not Muhammad, mindful that ’50 times a day’ was a command from the Creator, have replied, ‘Get behind me, satan’, headed straight back home and wasted little time doing anything else given that if one was to pray 50 times a day, there would be little time for anything else?
