This year (2019), the 27th night of Rajab (1440) falls on the night of the 2nd of April according to Istanbul Islamic calendar.
On this night, we celebrate Al Isra [The Night Journey] of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) from Mecca to Jerusalem and his Mi’raj [Ascension] through the seven heavens.
Qur’an, Sura Al Isra, Chapter 17, The Night Journey
1. May Allah be Glorified. He Who carried His devotee (Muhammad) during the night from the Masjid Al Haram [mosque in Mecca] to the Masjid Al Aqsa [mosque in Jerusalem], which is in a blessed area, so that We may enlighten him about Our signs. There is no doubt He is Al Sami [The Hearer; The Listener], Al Basir [The Seer].
