The Isra’ Mi’raj was the night journey of Prophet Muhammad Sallallalhu Alaihi Wasallam during which Allah the Almighty ordained that Muslims should perform the daily prayers. The journey from Masjidil Haram in Makkah to Masjidil Aqsa in Baitulmuqaddis was a great miracle and no one except those who believed in Allah would accept that it occurred. The event was described in a special talk in conjunction with the Isra’ Mi’raj celebration organised by the Muslimah Affairs Division of the Mosque Affairs Department and the Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque Takmir Committee for Brunei Muara District Muslimah Guidance Class.
In the talk, Doctor Widad binti Abdul Azizi, Shari’ah and Law Faculty Lecturer at Sultan Sharif Ali Islamic University highlighted the importance of the daily prayers in people’s life. Doctor Widad said Muslims should be wary of the destruction planned by the army of Syaitan or Satan, the enemy of Islam. The lecturer added it is the mission of Satan and his followers to deviate Muslims and make them neglect the prayers so that they would be losers in this World and the Hereafter. The celebration was also attended by Datin Hajah Norliyana binti Haji Arif Lim, wife of the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Religious Affairs.
