Laylatul Israq wal Mikraj


O son, the Naqshbandi Aa'liyyah followers under the directive of their esteemed murshid, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil Haqqani are taught to pray 20 rakaat sunnah in between Maghrib and Isha on the evening of 27th Rajab - the auspicious event of Israq wal Mikraj which Allah had granted to His Beloved Muhammad Rasul Allah. In each rakaat of the solat, recite al-Ikhlas 20 times. Upon completing the prayers, recite istighfar aloud for 100 times and Salawat Nabi 100 times.
Israk wal Mikraj was the night when Allah had granted the Prophet s.a.w many splendid things which no other prophets enjoyed. The night when He ordained the five daily prayers, an act of worship which differentiate us from the non-believers. But more importantly, it is an invitation to the Divine Presence, a mikraj.

We listen and we follow by hidayah and tawfik from Allah s.w.t. May, with the barakah from our murshid and all the mashaikhs, we are able to experience mikraj in each of our daily prayer, Ameen Allahumma Ameen.
