When is Lailat al Miraj?

Lailat al Miraj is the celebration of a two-part journey Muhammad took in the year 621 known as Isra and Mi'raj.

Isra begins with the angel Gabriel bringing Muhammad a winged steed (Buraq) on which he flew to the farthest Temple (likely the Temple Mount on Jerusalem). Here, he prays with other prophets.

After that, the journey of Miraj begins. He flys to the heavens and meets with other prophets like Abraham and Moses, and Jesus. Allah commands that Muslims must pray 50 times a day; however, Mohammad was able to persuade Allah to reduce His command to 5 times a day.
