When is al-Israa' wal-Mi'raaj?


There is a difference of opinion among scholars regarding the event of al-Israa' wal-Mi'raaj.

In general, there are two opinions as stated by Al-Hafizh Ibnu Hajar rahimahullah:
a. Before he became a prophet. This opinion is very weak.
b. After he became a prophet. The scholars were in agreement that the event occurred before Hijrah, however they differed in the dates into many different opinions.
Among these opinions:
1. Rabi’ul Awwal
2. Rajab
3. Ramadhan
4. 27 Rabi’ul Awwal
5. 12 Rabi’ul Awwal
6. 17 Ramadhan


Regarding the opinion of the event occurring in Rajab:

Imam Abu Syamah said in "Al-Ba’its ‘ala Ingkaril Bida’ wal Hawadits", Chapter 171:
"Several Al-Qoshshosh (storytellers) said that Al-Israa' occurred in Rajab, and this is a falsehood according to the scholars of jarh wa ta'dil."

Al-Hafizh Ibnu Hajar said in his book "Tabyinul ‘Ajab", Pg.11:
"Several Al-Qoshshosh (storytellers) said that Al-Israa' occurred in Rajab. He (al-Imam al-Hafizh Abul Khatthab Ibn Dihyah) said: This is a falsehood."
[References: Fathul Bari (7/203), Al-Jami’ li Ahkamil Qur`an (10/210), Syarh Muslim (2/209) dan Tafsirul Qur`anil ‘Azhim (3/22)]

Celebrating the Night of al-Israa' wal-Mi'raaj


Said Shaykh Ibn Baaz rahimahullah:
"There is no doubt that the incident of al-Israa. and al-Mi'raaj is (from) among the great signs of Allaah, indicating the truthfulness of His Messenger, Muhammad (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam), and the greatness of his position with Allaah. It is also among the evidences showing the ability of Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) and it is proof that Allaah is above all His creation.... 
This date on which al-Israa. and al-Mi'raaj occurred has not been established in the authentic ahaadeeth, neither during the month of Rajab nor in any other month. All that has been mentioned concerning the date of occurence of al-Israa. and al-Mi'raaj is deemed among the scholars of hadeeth to be unauthentic. Indeed, Allaah has great Wisdom in causing the people to forget the date of its occurrence.  
However, even if its date was confirmed, it would nonetheless be impermissible for the Muslims to distinguish that night from other nights by doing anything from among the acts of worship. Neither it would be permissible for them to celebrate it, as the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his companions neither celebrated it nor did they distinguish it with any special acts of worship. 
Should such a celebration of that night be lawful, the Messenger (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) would have clarified it to the people either by word or deed. And had such a thing occurred, it would have become known and common, and the companions would have transmitted it to us. The companions passed on from their Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) everything which Muslims are in need of. Never were they negligent with regard to the religion. Indeed, they were the first to lead the way to every good. If the celebration of this night had been lawful, they would have been first to do it.  
The Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) also is the most sincere in guiding people. He most truly fulfilled his mission, and performed his noble duty. If the glorification and celebration of that night had something to do with Islaam, the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) would never have neglected it nor concealed it. 
Since nothing about this was narrated from the Messenger (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his companions, therefore glorification and celebration of that night has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Islaam, as Allaah has perfected for this nation its religion, completed His favor upon it and rebuked and refuted the innovators who introduce into the religion that which Allaah has not allowed."

Perayaan Hari Valentine

Sambutan perayaan yang diraikan oleh umat manusia dengan latarbelakang bangsa dan agama yang berlainan jelas menggambarkan ciri-ciri keunikan sese-buah bangsa dan agama. Cara sesebuah bangsa dan agama menyambut hari kebesaran mereka pula mempunyai nilai-nilai keagamaan yang tersendiri.

Bagi masyarakat Islam Singapura, mereka terdedah kepada berbagai bentuk perayaan berlatarbelakangkan kehidupan berbilang bangsa dalam sebuah negara sekular. Menyedari hakikat ini, masyarakat Islam Singapura yang merupakan sebahagian dari rakyat negara ini perlu hidup sebagai rakyat Singapura yang berjaya mengekalkan keperibadian Islam dan berbangga dengannya.

Maka yang demikian adalah penting bagi masyarakat Islam mengetahui jenis-jenis perayaan sama ada dibenarkan atau tidak bagi masyarakat Islam merayakannya. Ini adalah semata-mata untuk memelihara kesucian aqidah Islam yang tidak membenarkan perkongsian dua nilai yang bertentangan dalam satu jasad.

Hakikatnya bahawa ketika kita nampak jahil tentang peristiwa-peristiwa agung dan perayaan dalam Islam, kita lebih arif dan berbangga untuk menyertai perayaan-perayaan yang bukan dari Islam. Perayaan-perayaan kumpulan agama bukan Islam yang pada asalnya mempunyai kaitan dengan ibadat atau kepercayaan ini, kemudiannya telah bertukar menjadi amalan budaya dan adat. Amalan ini kemudiannya disertai oleh berbagai bangsa, termasuk sebilangan orang-orang Islam, atas nama budaya atau adat. Antara amalan-amalan itu ialah:

Hari Valentine (St Valentine's Day)

Hari Valentine menurut sejarah Kristian pada asalnya ialah hari memperingati dua orang suci (saint) Kristian yang memiliki nama yang sama. Hari tersebut jatuh pada 14 Februari. Menurut lagenda Kristian, salah seorang dari dua orang suci tersebut adalah seorang paderi Rome yang terkorban dalam zaman penindasan Maharaja Claudius di Rome.

Hari Valentine (St Valentine's Day) yang disambut orang pada hari ini (khususnya masyarakat Kristian) adalah merupakan hari istimewa bagi remaja-remaja yang bercinta. Walaupun menurut dakwaan bahawa hari ini tidak ada kaitan dengan hari peringatan paderi di atas, tetapi hari ini menurut sejarah telah disambut oleh masyarakat purba Roman di mana pada hari ini para remaja akan menamakan kekasih mereka dan meminang mereka dalam Perayaan Lupercalia yang jatuh pada 15 Februari. Perayaan ini kemudian diperkenalkan oleh masyarakat Kristian Rome kepada England. Sebagai menyesuaikan adat ini dengan amalan agama Kristian, pihak gereja telah menukarkan kepada Perayaan St Valentine yang dikenal sekarang ini dengan Hari Valentine (St Valentine's Day).

Di Singapura, Hari Valentine disambut oleh kalangan muda-mudi dari berbagai bangsa, termasuk segelintir para remaja Islam yang cetek pengetahuan agama Islam dan hakikat hari tersebut. Kebanyakan remaja Islam kita yang menyambut hari tersebut adalah di kalangan mereka yang masih menuntut atau mereka yang terdedah kepada pergaulan bebas.

Pada hari tersebut, para remaja akan bertukar kad ucap selamat dengan menggunakan kad khas Hari Valentine yang bertemakan cinta. Bagi remaja-remaja yang bercinta pula, mereka akan membeli bunga-bunga untuk diberikan kepada kekasih. Bagi mereka juga seolah-olah hari tersebut adalah hari yang paling baik untuk mendapatkan kekasih. Oleh itu ramailah remaja-remaja yang keluar berdua-duaan pada hari tersebut sebagai meraikan sempenanya.
