Laylatul Meraj - What to read

Laylatul Meraj - What to readQ: Assalamualaikum. Kindly advise with regards to Laylatul Meraj, when is it advisable to fast? Also please send me what should be read on this night, as well as for women in haiz?

A: Islam has not prescribed any specific Dua, fast or Ibadat (worship) for Laylatul Meraj. The Meraj was indeed a miraculous event with many incidents occurring during this journey of Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) to the heavens. Muslims should use this opportunity to reflect on the favours of Jannah and the severity of Jahannam and endeavour to reform our lives in conformity with the Sunnah.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Was Salaam
