Isra and Miraj practices

Bismillahirahmanirahim

Beloved Community

Blessed Isra and Miraj

I am quickly sending you a Nafl practice which is not required but is beneficial for this day preceding the night of Miraj.

This prayer is offered between the noon and afternoon prayers on the day of Miraj, the 27th of Rajab. It is 4 rakats. After the Fatiha in each rakat the following is recited:
1 Suratul Falaq, Surah 113
1 Suratun Nas, Surah114
3 Suratul Qadr, Surah 97
51 Suratul Ikhlas, Surah 112

Apart from this you may offer other kinds of devotions:

Read the Mevlud in the Atom from the Sun of Knowledge, the section on the Ascension.

Irshad, pp. 435-461 and 466-470 offers an account of the travel to Jerusalem, the Isra, and the Miraj in Effendi’s powerful words. Try not to be disturbed by the passages on the trials suffered because of various perversions of the natural human constitution. Most prophetic accounts and scriptures have some imagery of this kind. If it is too distasteful to you just skip over it. It is not meant for you anyway.

The Evening and Morning Wirds are always excellent.

La ilahe ilallah Muhammad Rasulallah 1,000 times or more

Extra rekats of salat in the night

Contemplation of the Miraj by following the Prophet’s journey in your soul.

Every person of faith will experience a miraj at least once in their life.

May our love and our every breath be for the beloved of Allah in this holy night, for the one who has brought countless blessings to ourselves and all beings. So many new words and forms of praise, so much mystic knowledge, so much forgiveness and bountiful blessings were offered to us by Allah in this night through the blessed heart of the Messenger.

May our love and gratitude flow from our hearts to our lineage, and in particular to beloved Pir Nureddin Jerrahi and his mother Amina al Jerrahi, beloved Muzaffer Effendi al Jerrahi and beloved Nur al Anwar al Jerrahi.

With the spiritual excitement descending into our souls from this night.

Fariha Nur Ashki Jerrahi to all of you Nur Ashki Jerrahi Beloveds
