  The Night Of Isra & Miraj: What Is It's Importance To Muslims? - IslamicSydney.com
Isra and Miraj in the Quran and Hadith
Isra refers to the Prophet's journey from his home in Makkah to Masjid Al-Aqsa in Jerusalem and back in one night, something that was considered unthinkable in a time and place where the only means of long-distance transportation was the camel and it took months to make this journey.
Miraj refers to the ascension of the Prophet from this rock to the Upper Heavens and his return to his home in Makkah in the same night.

 the Message Continues
The Prophet's (pbuh) Miraj is an indispensable strategic instrument for the projection of the Qur'anic guidance in the lands of Christians and Jews.
The Prophet's (pbuh) Isra and Miraj was meant to demonstrate to Jews and to Christians that he, Muhammad (pbuh), was now God's Messenger on earth and had, as a consequence, inherited spiritual authority over the multi-dimensional legacies of previous Prophets.
Our interpretation of Miraj as a religious experience of the transcendental world is reinforced when we examine the time and date when the Prophet's (pbuh) Miraj took place and the position it occupies in the sequence of spiritually important dates which follow it in the Islamic calendar.

 MIRAJ
The Isra, the Prophet Muhammad's night journey to the furthermost mosque is mentioned in the Quran.
As an introduction to this book the publishers say 'The Isra and Miraj are of great importance to all Muslims, for this is when Allah commanded the five daily prayers, one of the five pillars of Islam.
After comparing the hadith against the Quran it may be easy to dismiss the Miraj as a figment of someone's vivid imagination but it is this event which has led millions of people to believe that it is the basis of salat, so it needs further investigation.

 Holy deadlock | From Occupied Palestine
The explanation is simple: when it comes to the refugees, there is an absolute Israeli refusal to recognize the right of the 1948 refugees to return to their former property in what is now the State of Israel.
The Palestinian leadership is fully aware of this and understands that in order to deal with the problem, it will have to persuade the refugee families to seek arrangements involving rehabilitation and financial compensation.
From their point of view, all the Israeli activity in connection with the Temple Mount is intended to make possible a Jewish takeover of Al-Aqsa similar to the Jewish control of the mosque in the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, which has become an Israeli military facility and, effectively, a Jewish synagogue.
