Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is unique is his power of miracles. Every miracle is an individual miracle but the Me'raj is not just one single miracle, but it is the comprehensiveness of numerous miracles. This is such a blessed miracle that we cannot decipher how many other miracles are gathered within it. Hereunder a few of these miracles will be discussed. Think for a moment. When we travel from one city to another with our cars, it takes us at least an hour or two, even though we may travel by means of a very fast car. But our Beloved Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) journeyed from the earth into the skies, then from the sky of the earth passed all the skies, then to Sidratul Muntaha, the Arsh, the Kursi and it is unknown where else he went to and this where ever is even free from place and thus cannot be regarded as where ever, and yet he travelled this entire journey in a short space of time and then returned. Allah Ta'ala states in the Holy Qur'an, “Glory be to Him Who carried His bondman by night from the sacred Mosque to the Aqsa Mosque around which We have put blessings that We might show him Our grand signs.” [Surah 17, Verse 1] .In this verse, the word “Lail” points to the short space of time. The philosophers have refuted it by saying that, “Time is based on the quantity of motion.”

They say that if the motion (movement) of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was so vast and great then there should have been a measure (quantity) for that motion. This however was a Mu'jiza (miracle) of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that from where to where he went in a really short space of time and then still returned while his bed was still warm and his wudhu water was still running. This is why so many people who have no real intelligence and so many who are the slaves of their intellect rejected this great miracle and believed that it was merely a dream. They said that the Me'raj is just one of the dreams of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and it is not the name of a special journey of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Did these people not read the Holy Qur'an and take notice of the fact that Allah Ta'ala says regarding this journey, “Bi Abdihi” ? By using this word it is clear that Rasoolullah (SallallahuAlaihi Wasallam) went with body and soul and not just in a dream, if not it would have been said,“Bi Roohi Abdihi”. Here, “Abd” proves that it was with body and soul as “Abd” is the combination of both. Almighty Allah also uses the words “Asra” which is regarded as a physical journey and the other point is that “Asra” is regarded usually as a night journey and not as a day journey. So here it must be clarified that as long as the Asra is not regarded as a physical journey (meaning with body), it can never be regarded as being correct. Based on this, certain people have raised the objection that it would have been impossible for this to have been a physical journey as the ancient philosophers have mentioned that going up from the surface of the earth, there is such a surface in the atmosphere known as Kura'-e-Zamhareerya (Intensely cold atmospheric region) and adjoining to the surface of the sky, there is a surface that is known as Kura'-e-Naar (Intensely hot atmospheric region). The philosophers believe that if something has to pass through Kura'-e-Zamhareerya then due to its intense cold atmospheric conditions, it will immediately freeze on entering this atmospheric region, and if something has to pass through Kura'-e-Naar then it will completely combust (burn), thus making it impossible to travel beyond both these atmospheric regions.
