Srinagar: On the auspicious occasion of Mehraj Un Nabi( SAW), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq addressed a large congregation of devotees at historic Aali Masjid Eidgah Srinagar after Nimaz-e-Maghrib on Thursday and threw light on the event and the philosophy of the Mehraj-e-Rasool (PBUH).
“Congratulating the Muslims all over the world and particularly the Muslims of Kashmir, Mirwaiz while throwing light on the event of Mehraj-e-Alam (SAW) said during this night more than 1400 years ago Prophet Muhammad (SAW) took the journey from Masjid Harm to Masjid Aqsa and from there to Maqam-e-Qabakousen. He said this journey is also referred as Isra or Mehraj,” the statement said.
He said this event instigated the element of quest for knowledge and research in the world which gave the mankind courage to reach to the stars, moon and outer space. He said that for the thinking minds and alert brains there are so many messages hidden in this event.
Mirwaiz said that Mehraj is a practical miracle of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) which would be remembered till the Day of Judgment.
He prayed that may Allah give Muslims vision to understand the spirit and philosophy of the Mehraj. He also prayed for universal peace and spiritual and social upliftment of mankind in general and people and society of Kashmir in particular. A large number of women had also come to listen to the sermon of Mirwaiz.
