Nuzul Al-Quran

The entire month of Ramadan is an occasion for month-long fasting, prayer, mosque attendance, and reading of Quranic Suras (chapters) and Ayat (verses).



Muslims do not claim to know the exact day on which Muhammad first began receiving revelations from Allah through the angel Jibrail, but many Sunni Muslims observe Nuzul Al-Quran on the 27th of Ramadan. However, in Malaysia, it is kept on the 17th of Ramadan.

Nuzul Al-Quran is only a public holiday in areas of Malaysia with large Muslim populations, which includes most states but excludes east Malaysia and a few areas in west Malaysia as well.

The Prophet Muhammad is said to have been visited by the angel Jibrail while meditating in a small cave on Mount Hira’, just outside of Mecca. He isolated himself in the cave to escape from the evil doings of the people. He is said to have been appointed the “last prophet of Allah” and to have received daily revelations for 23 years until his death.

Many Muslims and western tourists visit the ve…

Israk Mikraj

The story of Prophet Muhammad's journey from the City of Mecca to Al-Aqsa Mosque. The events of Israk and the Mikraj of His Prophet Muhammad were a great test of Allah SWT for His servants. It is so unique that it overcomes the thinking of ordinary humans. This is because the distance is approximately 1,250 kilometers.
It is as if the words of Saidina Abu Bakr RA's great confession on the morning of Prophet Muhammad came to earth after he was taken down from the Mikraj. Abu Jahal joked to Saidina Abu Bakr RA, "Do you believe that while traveling normally takes months, this is your best friend to say Israk and Mikraj in just one night?".
Then with full confidence, Saidina Abu Bakr answered firmly,
In the sense, "If Muhammad had said so, I would have believed, even if it went beyond that." In the expression of the Prophet's words, Saidina Abu Bakr was given the title of As-Siddiq.
Allah Almighty shows His power by bringing great distances, presenting eve…
