Isra Wa Mi3raj holiday


It's been passed onto me, that Saturday would be a holiday for the Islamic celebration of the Prophet's Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him) Ascending & Descending from Earth to the high Heavens and vice versa.

May this holiday leave a holy mark in our hearts and cleanse our souls from the petty world that we live in, inshallah.

In case such a holiday comes to the surface, I wish everyone a great holiday.
Peace.

Sleepless, is it this coming Saturday or the week after?

I guess the holiday would be on Saturday the 11th of August, not the coming Saturday...

I really don't know. Someone only informed about it.

But I read somewhere that Isra Wa Mi3raj is always on 27 Rajab. If that's true, has it been that fast?

Hmmmmm

Sleepless, you're right Isra w mi3raj is on the 27th of Rajab.

Today is the 17th of Rajab. (check newspapers) So 27th of Rajab will be Saturday 11th of August. Hence, the holiday is not this coming Saturday, but the week after, 11th of August. :-)
